Cons: "The economy seats on the Lufthansa A350 were extremely uncomfortable and seemed excessively narrow as well has having cramped legroom. I could not get comfortable let alone sleep, and my backside felt like I had been sitting on a park bench rather than a long haul coach airline seat. I will avoid this aircraft if possible in the future."

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."

Cons: "Service needs to be radically improved."

Pros: "Excelente!"
Cons: "Nada"

Cons: "Delayrd"

Pros: "Never again with KAYAK. Sorry."

Cons: "Flying in general."

Cons: "Our flight had a "mechanical delay" which drug on for several hours (every 30 min there would be another 30 min delay). This eventually meant we would miss our connection to Munich and had to be rescheduled to the following day. The next day we had another round of "mechanical delays" and just barely made the connection."

Pros: "Absoluteky nothing. I mean literally NOTHING. I take that back, a pilot for another flight who saw my predicament and tried his best to help me figure which flight to take in the morning. Also, as far as floors go, the airport terminal was maybe only the ninth worst I've slept on. Kudos!"
Cons: "Wretched customer service. Flight delayed multiple hours after my ride departed and stranded at airport for fourteen hours with no food or beverage comps, or even kindness from the their agents. Was told "oh well, weather". I had left my remaining cash (and didn't bring my card) with my lady friend to get the kids some nice things (she is driving back on a seperate day and was already two hours away by the time we found out flight wasn't happening in time) and absolutely zero compassion given by United. Also, required to add an 80 dollar uber when I get home because there will be no ride as my orginal ride can't make it. May also have to call out of work. Not even an offer to bump my seat on next flight to close to the cabin or exit row. Two hours on phone with customer service with no offers of even slight compensation even when this entire situation is explained. I get it. I agreed to terms of service, but your service sucked and is costing me an armful of money at this point, wouldn't it be in the slightest interest of theirs to give me a meal, or a room or even a lousy coffee?"

Cons: "Being stuck in the middle"

Pros: "The updates that were sent to me in e-mail."

Pros: "United greeted at check in at airport"

Cons: "Everything"

Cons: "Went like clockwork."

Cons: "Had to check a bag I've carried on several other times."

Cons: "stole my money for 2 flights. Never made it to my destination"

Cons: "As a military spouse I was not allowed to check a bag free so I paid the fee. When I boarded I noticed many passengers bringing bags on that we're as big as the one I just paid for. They either checked for free or brought it on and managed to shove it in sideways taking up space that others needed. Some people brought three bags on!!! As a military spouse I feel cheated to have had to pay when others checked in for free at the gate. Not cool United, either let the spouse check in for free or make everyone abide by the so-called rules of one carry on that actually fits into that metal baggage guide. I would like a refund of 50.00 for the baggage fees I paid for this trip."

Cons: "They gave me the last seat in the airplane"

Pros: "The time"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Nothing. It’s garbage."

Cons: "Getting off the plane my stroller wasn’t there. Then I was directed to 3 different places before I could find it near the baggage area. The reason I had the stroller... to help me Navigate an airport with little children. Totally defeated the purpose. Never again frontier. You all suck"

Pros: "Fine for what I expected"
Cons: "Fine for what I expected"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Delayed, unexplained turbulence, one work toilet, strange staff..."

Cons: "Tiny trays, additional costs, including a carry-on despite doing a search w/one"

Cons: "I was charged an extra $45 dollars from Denver to DC for my hand luggage. I had previously checked in another luggage from Vegas at the same cost. This meant i had to pay a total of $90 plus the travel cost, which was very unfortunate and very costly. Such communication of anticipated cost on hand luggage was not shared prior to the trip. This was very disappointing and clearly made my entire trip very frustrating. I would not consider using the services ever again."

Pros: "efficient boarding good information from pilot"
Cons: "arrival 45 minutes late"

Pros: "Never, never again!"

Cons: "What food ? Seats ? Sitting on hard surface. Not enough space. Pay for everything. Next will be pay for the air you breathe."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Same,as above"
Cons: "Same as above"

Pros: "Total femal crew!!"

Pros: "Same as above"

Cons: "Lost bags"

Pros: "Getting off the plane was the best part"
Cons: "Babies crying kicking my seat screaming in my ear"

Pros: "Size of plane"
Cons: "Staff members not offering water (at least). Only items that cost"

Cons: "It hasn't left yet and you do not know that."

Cons: "Same screaming infants. They were able to sleep but allowed to roam aisles."

Pros: "cheap ticket"
Cons: "- Trays were about 10 inches wide and 5 inches deep - which provides no value whatsoever. You can't place anything on it b/c it's not big enough. - Chairs were short so I had nothing to rest my head on. - Cramped isle space"

Cons: "Lost luggage and delayed takeoff"

Cons: "Communication at the gate was poor. As well as the communication on board the plane."

Cons: "Flight attendant in the rear (on the flight to Denver)... Unpleasant nag. I'm fine with a no frills cattle car that affords 0 leg room and military cargo plane seats, just as long as it's reflected in the price, not the personnel."

Cons: "The day after arriving at our destination, our return trip was canceled: "due to day-of-travel flight cancellation or traveler no-show." I can assure you, we did show; I had the pictures. They tried to put us on an earlier flight, which was not convenient, due to travel plans made 8 months prior, so the return flight was scheduled for the next day (again, inconvenient, due to loss of income). Frontier attempted to charge me for the extra day. After I complained multiple times, they finally waived the additional charge when I reminded them I was NOT the one who canceled the original flight. My daughter and I were provided $100 travel vouchers, each, for the "inconvenience." Frontier can keep their $200."

Cons: "Let people know about their carry on luggage charges!"

Cons: "Baggage for 2 pieces of luggage $75.00 then a gimmicky Visa card to earn miles not cost effective"

Cons: "more than 2 hrs late"

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Horrible space No comp beverage No wifi No magazine Delayed"

Pros: "made it to DC"
Cons: "delayed 1.5 hours. little information. no apology. no explanation."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Cons: "Seat was awful even though I paid for an aisle."

Pros: "not much You pay for everthing incuding water, its like being nickled and dimed at every turn."

Cons: "3hour delay."

Pros: "It felt very simple and non complex, unlike other airlines where they make the process of traveling a long and tumultuous process. Bravo Frontier!"
Cons: "There was a Lady checking in people at the gate who had questioned many customers of whether their carry-on would fit, it seemed to bother many guests because they didn't want to be charged extra."

Cons: "The seats are by far the most uncomfortable I've ever sat in."

Cons: "Paying extra for EVERYTHING. Will never travel with Frontier again."

Cons: "Only food for purchase - did not buy any. No entertainment available, incl music. Seating crowded."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Early Arrival"
Cons: "Paying for a seat"

Pros: "except for the food and what entertainment it was over all good"
Cons: "could not pay cash"

Cons: "they cancelled the fligh on me - over booked"

Cons: "Your seats and absolutely terrible. What kind of an idiot designed them. Yes sure you added a few extra seats but the comfort level is horrible. I had so much back pain for sitting on those garden plastic chairs"

Cons: "Having to sit on the plane for four hours in the same position of the seat."

Cons: "They charged me 70 for bags.... Which is insane.... Without warning basically."
