Cons: "Three hour departure delay. No explanation given. No apology."

Cons: "This is possibly the worst airplane food ive ever had. Ever. The chicken didn't look nor taste like chicken and it was in some weird green chickpea sauce?? Very unpleasant."

Pros: "Pilot almost barrel-rolled us climbing out of JFK, so if started well enough.... Ground assistance (wheel chair) left me with a badly bruised left big toe and I didn't think we'd ever get through the TSA. The pat-down I received was more like a sexual assault and I didn't even get a happy ending. We made it to RDU, so the exercise was a success, but it was a huge hassle."
Cons: "After reading the good things, you need more bad?"

Cons: "Too old aircrafts"

Pros: "Every thing went well thx"

Pros: "Service"

Pros: "USB and AC power supplied in-seat is incredibly nice feature."
Cons: "1 of the 3 bags we checked was forgotten at JFK airport. Since we had a 5 hour layover, Delta had ample time to get the bag on the plane."

Pros: "The two ladies who were initially boarding passengers were excellent. They had wonderful people skills, were smiling, and extremely personable. I loved the interaction."

Pros: "It's nice to be theoretically in zone 2"
Cons: "Boarding is inconsistant. At JFK it was like boarding a plane in China. Everyone congested at the front. One Delta person taking tickets. Two Delta people not helping her. We boarded slowly, partially because people STILL refuse to check bags that are not carry on bags. We left late. Why have zones at all? Why have carrying rules that you don't enforce? Why did we pay $25 a bag if you don't enforce this? Food choices are funny, especially the "tapas". Whoever thinks THOSE are tapas should Google the word tapas. Delta reportedly earned 746 million in the first quarter and you charge for everything and still can't come up with decent food for us to BUY?"

Pros: "Boarding was quick and flight was on time"
Cons: "I was seated next to an extremely obese man. He was so large his body spilled over not only into my seat but rested on my body if I did not plaster myself against the window. This was very disturbing on many levels. First of all, I paid for a seat on the flight but only was able to utilize half of it for the man next to me took up not only his seat but half of mine. Secondly, we were seated in an exit row. There was no way this man could fit through the emergency exit. This aroused a sense of panic and an overall feeling of unsafety for me because in the event of an emergency no one would be able to escape in our area because this man would clog up our exit. This could prove fatal for many people. Thirdly, his body kept touching mine since he was overflowing into my seat. During takeoff and turbulence especially, his excessive fat would rest on my legs, arms, and torso and bounce around. There was no escaping it. It was not only disgusting and disturbing to be unwillfully touched by this stranger, but it also caused me to feel extremely claustrophobic. I feel as though regulations need to change regarding excessively obese people flying on commercial airliners. It is unfair for passengers like me to pay an equal amount and be cheated by passengers like him and only receive half of what I paid for mixed with undesired human contact and is also a serious safety hazard. Thank you for your time and I hope you take my complaint seriously and consider reviewing your regulations."

Pros: "Very nice and showed concern for safety. That made me feel good."
Cons: "No in flight DirecTV"

Pros: "I missed my flight due to a delayed flight from denver to Washington. When I arrived I beg if there is a sooner flight to Geneva. They said no more. They book me another flight which has more connections. When I was waiting for my next flight there were actually more flight going and direct to Geneva before my flight. I even ask the gate personel if There is more seats avilable for one of those flight before my flight. They said yes but because I had a luggage it will take time to transfer my luggage and they will end up being delayed. United airlines is HORRIBLE!!! My flight were delayed and with that they should have more consideration for those costumers who were delayed. But instead of being kind and considerate. They had book me a later flight and the worse thing is the itenerary had more connections. Very Exhausting. The other costumer when we were in the line at the costumer service desk some people were given flight which are like 12 hrs away. How Horrible service. I WILL NOT FLY WITH UNITED AIRLINES AGAIN. Very POOR SERVICE."

Pros: "Read above"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Sinister manager at denver, inconsistently executed ski bag policies. we bought the extra legroom seats, only to find we were placed in separated middle seats at the back of the plane. When we spoke to a flight attendant about the mistake, she told us we could get off the plane and complain to the front desk...."

Pros: "Crew ROCKED!"

Cons: "I was very cold!"

Pros: "Overall geeat"

I paid $330 for a FULL seat to myself, not so I could share the space with the people beside me because United allowed them to purchase 2 seats for 3 people. As a full-paying customer I shouldn't be the one to suffer because of it."

Pros: "Staff and Pilots did a great job. Wheelchair was much apprecciated!!! Everything was on time or ahead of it. Great landing!! Wish you didn't charge for baggage and would like better snacks--oh for the good old days!"

Pros: "The landing was not good as we had turbulance. Other than that, everything was good."

Cons: "The only snack available was a mix that had dairy. Other airlines, like JetBlue not only have a selection from which to choose, but at least one option is vegan."

Pros: "Not a lot"
Cons: "The fact that we had to get off due to too much fule,didn't make a lot of us comfortable..when it comes to flying,the whole team needs to be on the same page..makes flyers more comfortable..but things do happen.."

Pros: "Same"
Cons: "Same"

Cons: "Very crowded feeling and I don't have claustrophobia. My seat in the very back couldn't recline because it was jammed in with less legroom than others around me."

Pros: "Spacious!"

Cons: "Turbulence"

Pros: "Great"

Pros: "Delayed in Denver"

Cons: "United had 3 gate changes. Ok sometimes that happens. This was said due to a storm out of colorado"

Pros: "Quick, no turbulence, friendly attendants"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything. United made no apologies."

Cons: "I HAVENT EVEN GOTTEN THERE YET!"

Cons: "The doors did not close on time and the plane left at least 15 minutes late due to boarding delays."

Pros: "The seats were comfortable enough. Nothing bad there. The crew was very nice and professional. Otherwise, not a lot of positives."
Cons: "I got this ticket because of the price. Then spent 50$ more on the checked bag because I checked it at the airport. I tried online but was not allowed. I tried at the airport kiosk, it wouldn't work. I spent 100$ on baggage for the whole trip. Ridiculous. All snacks had to be purchased. I just paid a lot for a bag and I didn't deserve one lousy can of soda? Never mind. Next time I will go United or American."

Pros: "I don’t like nothing about forntine"
Cons: "O"

Pros: "Frontier makes it easy to travel w infants. They let you board first. With an infant, they allow you to bring a stroller, car seat and breast pump and a diaper bag for the baby in addition to your personal item st no additional cost. I thought it would be impossible to be able to have everything I needed without breaking the bank when traveling across the United States."
Cons: "Plane was dirty. Trash and crumbs everywhere."

Pros: "Made it safely"
Cons: "Airline is a racket. No compensation for inconveniences. Instead of arriving at 5:30 pm, we arrived at 8:30 pm."

Pros: "The crew rushed from one other flight to ours and did a great job."
Cons: "I tried to take care of the carry on fee online, but found I had not done so at the checkin counter."

Cons: "No shocker there were delays and jet problems, but the thing that really made me angry was the fact that the flight attendant was extremely rude to me and threatened to kick me and my children off the plane when my baby was crying during taxi. News flash Frontier... if you actually took off when you were supposed to and didn't make us spend two hours sitting on the hard floor of the airport, my baby wouldn't be crying with exhaustion. And guess what, babies cry sometimes. Being rude and stressing out the mother of that baby is not going to help the situation. After a few minutes he crashed and slept the entire flight. I will NEVER fly Frontier Airlines again."

Cons: "We left 30 min late, chairs don't recline."

Cons: "Flight delayed several hours. Seats don't recline. No food services unless you pay outrageous prices."

Pros: "Nice plan."
Cons: "No wifi on plane."

Cons: "Baggage fee.........."

Pros: "Price was right."
Cons: "Seats have NO padding. For a long red eye flight, this made for an uncomfortable TOTAL of 5 hours for the combined trip. I'd say this is a common problem among ALL airlines now. I haven't been in a seat with decent padding for 2 years! The boarding process was again hectic and crowded at the gate."

Pros: "I didn't miss my connection"
Cons: "The plane was sooooo hot. I was sweating the whole time"

Cons: "I was not on this flight. Despite the fact that my ticket was clearly for this flight, I ended up on a flight to Charlotte, not Raleigh. I do not know how this happened. Yes, perhaps I could have been more careful in the middle of the night while making a mad dash from one flight to the next. But how is it possible that Frontier can scan my ticket and not notice that I'm about to board the wrong flight? How is it possible that their computer system didn't alert them that I was about to board a flight for which I did not have a ticket? It seems more likely that the person who scanned my ticket wasn't paying attention."

Pros: "Not one thing"
Cons: "My number one issue was the staff. Totally unhelpful and unaware of guests needs. You should not advertise frontier economy tickets to people over 6 feet tall and/or wider than a 14 year old."

Pros: "Crew was friendly and professional."
Cons: "Original ticket price was cheaper than other airlines, but after the $35 overhead baggage fee, the a la carte costs for a drink and snack, and the extra $120 for business class, we paid over $200 more per person per ticket that the past 4 times we've flown on Delta. Won't fly Frontier again."

Cons: "Waiting area at airport was not big enough. People were sitting on floor."

Cons: "This is the most uncomfortable seats that one can possibly imagine."

Cons: "We had to wait at the gate for 30 min before take off!"

Cons: "Seats did not recline. No usb. No food. Didn't know till check in that they charge for carry on bags...more than checked bags"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The flight ran 4 hours late, no apologies from the staff. The staff is rude and not helpful. Took 2 hours to get the luggage, since they were running behind with all other flights. Not flying frontier again, ever."

Cons: "The additional two hour wait for earlier plane to cleavage gate then another to UN load til our plane could board and total lack of communication about the situation"

Cons: "The plane was dirty."

Pros: "The price was cheap. I say cheap and not affordable because of the negative."
Cons: "The flight was an hour and a half late so I had to cancel plans because I ended up getting home too late. The seats were super uncomfortable. What entertainment and what food??"

Cons: "This airline is frustrating. Their seats are wildly uncomfortable.... Think lawn chairs that do not recline. They advertise themselves as being super cheap but then they charge you for everything (i.e. A carry on bag) so it ends up being just as expensive as it would have been to go with a different and more comfortable airline."

Pros: "Direct flight. New aircraft"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats. Extra charges"

Pros: "Went well."
Cons: "Didn't offer free water."

Cons: "Made me wait for 3 hours to tell that they cant make any arrangements to get to my family reunion. I missed the opportunity to catch the flight through other airlines. Very ineffecient staff and chaotic and lethargic service. they couldnt handle 5 customers in 2 hours. You will suffer terribly if you serious and important travel plans. They offered me a flight to Raleigh to reach on Monday morning at 5 am and my return flight from Raleigh was at 5:30 am. They must be smoking some wrong stuff."

Pros: "The crew was very nice."
Cons: "This is definitely the bottom of the heap when it comes to airlines. They offer a competitive price on a flight, but once booked they nickel and dime you until the price is higher than a better airline. They charge for seat choice on the whole plane, snacks and drinks, carry on and checked luggage, and there is no entertainment. Plus the seats felt like cardboard, and didn't recline. Definitely not a good choice for a red eye, or any flight over an hour long. Actually, no matter how short your flight is, you'll probably be more comfortable taking the bus. Two big thumbs down."

Cons: "Buy water"

Cons: "delay"

Pros: "Ticket price was great"
Cons: "Seats are cramped, snacks and beverages are not complimentary, website did not have accurate arrival time (family waited for an hour in Raleigh to pick me up)"

Pros: "- nothing"
Cons: "- horrible (rude and completely unhelpful) customer service at airport - took a long time to get refund - no flexibility or working with other airlines to rebook - baggage fees for carry on luggage. ridiculous."

Pros: "staff and crew were friendly and communicative"
Cons: "again boarding was delayed. perhaps it was an airport problem again."

Cons: "Frontier has so many hidden fees!"

Pros: "It was cheap"
Cons: "-no leg room -flight was delayed -boarding crew were rude"

Cons: "The plane was delayed in Denver for over an hour with little explanation as to why, communication with customers is a must."

Pros: "Price. Breezed through security! Quiet:)"
Cons: "New seats don't recline and hard to sleep in."

Cons: "I tried frontier for the first time and I will never make that mistake again. To be fair part of this is my responsibility, I should have done more research into exactly how much the extra fees were going to cost. After it was all said and done I spent more traveling with frontier than I would have with American or Delta. They charged for absolutely everything. Here is where they truly lost me as a potential return customer. They allow you a personal item as long as it fits under your seat but will charge you for a carry on. The personal item I had on my flight out to Denver did not cost me anything, however, the exact same item on my way out of Denver was now deemed a carry on item by the ticketing agent and cost me $45 to carry on. Not only was I being extorted but the attitude in which they were doing it was completely unacceptable. Had I known, I could have saved some money and paid on line for the carry on. Changing the rules of the game and providing me no remedy when I ask about the change in policy by responding, "I'm saying its a carry on" is why I will never fly frontier again. Do yourself a favor and spend the money on the front end because frontier will find a way to squeeze it out of you on the backend. And will expect you to smile and thank them for it."

Cons: "I was on a 11:59 pm flight. I arrived at airport at 9:45. It took me 45 min to check my bags. This is unacceptable."

Pros: "The flight was what I expected, but there was much more legroom and space in my seat than I had on other airlines. Also, the landing was so smooth that it was almost unnoticeable. It was one of the smoothest flights I have ever taken."
Cons: "The food and refreshment are either not provided or provided so quickly that it is nearly unnoticed. I don't fly for refreshments, but it is nice to have some water while flying for over 3 hours."

Pros: "Everything on time and no problems."
Cons: "Having to pay for carry on and guaranteeing seats together. The seats have to be the most uncomfortable made."

Pros: "people were nice"
Cons: "no free food. soda isn't free. no room and not comfortable"

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Seats are extremely uncomfortable. We boarded before crew arrived so had to wait in the plane"

Pros: "Everything was on time"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Paying for seat selection"

Pros: "Seats are terribly uncomfortable. Boarding was late."

Pros: "The attendants were very kind and personable. The plane was clean."
Cons: "I paid $30 extra PER SEAT to get each family member a seat that reclined for our red-eye (Denver to Raleigh). Our row had extra leg room, but no ability to recline. My husband and boys were moved to reclining seats (see below). There was NO way to sleep on the $30 extra leg room seat. Ridiculous set up. The online seating chart NEEDS to be more specific and tell customers EXACTLY what kind of extras they are paying for - NOT JUST the price. Reclining seats cost just the same as the extra legroom seats, but doesn't differentiate which are which on the chart NOT GOOD. Also, with birthdates, the online seating didn't catch that my sons were too young to sit in the exit row. REALLY??"

Cons: "Extra fees for things that should be standard. Like a seat! I will never fly frontier again or recommend it to anyone"

Pros: "What did I like? ............That we landed safely to our destination."
Cons: "What I didn't like about my Frontier flight is a much longer list! Lets start with the surprise carry on fee which was never described or made aware to the customer when booking. RIDICULOUS! Just when I thought I made it in my seat and was done with surprises, I came to the realization I had a 4 hour flight with nothing to drink or snack on because of the fact Frontier has NO COMPLIMENTARY DRINKS OR FOOD...not even peanuts or water! Never in my life have I ever heard of such a non sense making thing. I just wanted to get off that plane and never give Frontier another dime!"
