Cons: "Flight was delayed for about three hours, due to mechanical issues with the second engine not starting. We sat on the the plane for over an hour and half. Some people that missed their connection flights were offered hotel stay. Others that had no connection flight was not offered anything for the several hours of delay that occurred."
Cons: "Tv"
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Paid extra for Econ Comfort but still got a seat with no in flight entertainment and they provided no food/beverage services."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Wouldn’t let us take our carry-on because they had overbooked and had no more room in overhead. Delayed our first flight and then our connecting flight left *early*. (If you know you have customers with short connections, why leave early to make their connections even shorter?) Then told us they would not pay for our hotel since it wasn’t their fault. Gave us a “discount” with a nearby hotel that was more expensive than what you could book it for online. Had to wait several hours for them to get us back the carry-on luggage that they insisted we check in the first place."
Pros: "Air crew was excellent"
Pros: "The chekc in person was very helpful."
Cons: "The plane was too hot and the pilot did not accommodate the passengers request. More than just me made the same request."
Pros: "Entertainment is so appreciated on long flights. It was quiet. Snacks done quickly. Took a long time to board, but the flight was full. We were delayed out of gate because of this. Unloading plane went fairly quick but could have been a problem for short connections. Those people should have been allowed to leave first."
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "Had to sit directly next to the engine and it was very loud."
Cons: "I have traveled with my luggage plenty of times through airports and the flight from washington to jacksonville, my luggage came back to me cracked and broken. I was surprised that Delta handling was worse than any of the cheaper flights I normally take and will not be checking any baggage with Delta again."

Cons: "Same issue... there were no snakes on the plane :-/"
Pros: "Flight attendants and cookies. That's it."
Cons: "We left DC late because of Delta's inefficient boarding process. We landed in Atlanta late. Our flight to Sioux Falls left early, without us. My pregnant wife and I made it to the gate 4 minutes before the scheduled departure and they told us the plane was already gone and there was no way for us to get on the plane. Our bags did make it to Sioux Falls, so my wife didn't have her prenatal vitamins, , we had no clean clothes and we were forced to spend the night in Atlanta. The saddest part of yet another terrible experience with Delta was that they offered us a "discounted" room at a terrible Howard Johnson for $72. I looked online and the same hotel was $65 to book on Kayak. So basically Delta was trying to scam us after they screwed us. Thanks Delta! Instead we paid $200+ to stay at an airport hotel. Every time I fly Delta I regret it, yet occasionally I get forced to take their awful airline to get somewhere I need to go. It never fails to add another bad Delta experience to my long list of failings from this SAD!!! airline."
Pros: "Free earphones"
Cons: "Delayed boarding Delayed flying after boarding Delayed in flight service"
Pros: "Free ear phones"
Cons: "Late boarding Late take off Maintenance after boarding Two hours before refreshments Boring movie Bumpy flight Very hard landing Home an hour late"
Pros: "Nice plane."
Cons: "No in flight TV."
Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Nothing everything was fine"
Cons: "Delta didnt wrap car seat in plastic while it was raining so it was soaked"
Pros: "Crew was quick and nice."
Cons: "Not many options for food."
Pros: "Attentive crew, good atmosphere, comfortable seating.(no free food so 3* but short flight so OK) Pre flight...Soo helpful, wonderful assistant. Delta vs KLM...Not so...See below:"
Cons: "Little time for plane change at Atlanta. Atlanta rail excellent but plane arrival was late and time to cross airport limited. This was especially galling as I was at MCO early enough to catch the 1hr prior flight and requested a transfer to travel with a friend. There were seats available and Delta tried to move me but KLM would not allow it????"
Cons: "No entertainment available at all. There were empty seats available and passenger next to me in the aisle seat was not offered to move--she fell asleep with her legs crossed and kept kicking me in the middle seat--I was traveling with the window seat passenger."
Cons: "I tried to get a seat and it was so hard, i couldn't do an online check in and once at the airport, no one could help me."
Pros: "There was a slight delay, but boarding was easy, and flight was smooth."
Cons: "Flight was completely packed."
Pros: "This was a routine fight that was handled well but Delta and crew."
Pros: "I am 6'6" 300 pounds ... So I regularly book first class for trips over 2 hours in length ... Delta remains my #1 choice for both value and overall experience in first class. The difference between Delta and all other domestic carriers is just overwhelming. United and American/US Air could learn a lot from Delta. I could have flown this trip direct on United, but chose to fly through Atlanta on Delta for less money and a better experience from the baggage check to the gate to the in-flight experience."
Cons: "Seat would not recline, temperatures in the cabin were exceedingly cold. Seemed like the crew were rushing to get everyone out. Stepped into large crowd of people boarding the plane we had just been on. No announcements or help finding connecting flight."

Pros: "It was all good nice crew and smooth flight"
Pros: "Boarding"
Cons: "Tight seats on full flight"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Tiny seats, no snack or napkin with the drink. Noise in back."
Pros: "Nice seats with plenty of leg room. Friendly crew. Smooth flight."
Pros: "Greets you nicely, on time, caring staffs"
Pros: "None"
Cons: "No"
Pros: "Ummm . . . the colors?"
Cons: "10 years ago, American was a great airline. It has just gone down and down. The flight attendants are miserable, grabbing things out of your hand when they come to collect stuff before landing. No smiles, no grace. The plane was old, but also poorly cleaned between flights, so the bathrooms on our LAX-Atlanta flight smelled of urine from minute 1--you can imagine how they smelled by the time we landed. There was trash in my seat-back pocket when I took my seat. Supposedly food was available for purchase, but I couldn't activate the food menu, only the drinks menu, on my little seatback screen, so I just waited until I got to Atlanta to eat."

Pros: "free movies"
Cons: "flight attendant was rude"
Cons: "The cramped space"
Pros: "Flight attendant was friendly and gave great service!"
Pros: "Nothing!"
Cons: "I never felt like writing a review but I feel like I should let other families with little ones know. My wife, 2 year old son, and I was boarding at the gate and they couldn't scan my son's boarding pass. They quickly went over to the computer station and gave my son another pass. We went to our seats and found out someone else is in our 2year old seat. Apparently they gave the seat to someone else at the last second because up to the point when I printed our boarding passes at the kiosk, our seats were still together (and I paid $41/per seat extra to try to keep us together). The other customer was nice enough to switch with our son so were able to stay together at the last min so it goes to show AA priority and service."

Cons: "There was an incident on plane between passenger and flight attendant, where a drink was spilled on me and ruined my dress and shoes."
Pros: "Price space, time"
Cons: "Waiting.. but better to be early than late"
Pros: "The planes people and service."
Cons: "I missed my flight in Atlanta heading to LA on my way to Brisbane, Australia on Saturday 16th July. The ground staff wasn't at all helpful in trying to get me on another flight and in fact sent me to Delta! The lady there couldn't have been nicer and more helpful. Sadly I wasn't compensated at all and had to pay to re-book the flights on the Sunday 17th. On my return from Brisbane, American Airlines had cancelled my flight to Atlanta as they said I was a 'no show' heading out. Thankfully I was able to get a seat on stand by. So, no I'm not a happy customer."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "We sat on the runway for more than an hour."
Pros: "great seats and flight"
Cons: "not that i can think of"
Pros: "Boarding was smooth. Landing was smooth"
Cons: "The power outlets didnt work."
Cons: "we had a 9 hour delay"
Cons: "Nice exp and service"
Cons: "The delay was horrible and the captain said it was because they needed extra sleep. I found this offensive as i was trying to complete a very long trip and was exhausted."
Pros: "We landed in NYC -- although it was first announced as Dulles."
Cons: "This flight was on Canadian Air under the auspices of United. I was not allowed into the United Club lounge despite the fact that I had business class ticket. I was informed that a business class ticket isn't sufficient for using the lounge when flying domestic. It is only good when flying international. They call that customer service. I generally avoid domestic airlines because of the customer service. The flight attendants were not happy to serve you. It's a small flight but they didn't even offer a snack -- you had to ask for it. And then they brought over a small basket with nuts, chips, candy bars, and a muffin. I took a muffin and it stuck to the roof of my mouth -- very poor quality. When I asked for a snack the flight attendant replied cocktail or soft drink never saying whether or not a snack was available.. She said this a couple of times before I could repeat that I wanted a snack to which she replied you want something to drink with that. I've been on many short flights in Asia and they will deliver a full meal and you don't have to ask for it. There was no entertainment but United did send an email explaining how I could purchase entertainment to play on my own device."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by five hours due to a mechanical problem with the plane. Little information was provided by United. Frustrating experience."
Pros: "The flying part"
Cons: "Tiny seats"
Pros: "On time, friendly crew."
Cons: "Even though we reserved well in advanced my wife and I got middle seats in different rows. Fortunately, we both got aisle seats (the last ones available) but of course in different rows when we signed in for our tickets."
Pros: "Got a window seat and had an amazing crew. Everything went smoothly! Dinner and breakfast served!"
Cons: "Everything was perfect!"
Pros: "Comfort was good"
Cons: "Food appeared stale at times Drinks like fruit juices were given in small amounts like a quarter cup by stewardess Appears that it was being rationed Choice and scope of movies were poor and narrow"
Cons: "Never got the chance to make it to Norfolk with United. They would not provide us a plane same day or our money back or money for the rental car we required."
Pros: "Nothing! Rude staff. They did nothing to help when the flight was delayed and i missed connection when I got home because of them."
Cons: "The staff was awful! The flight was delayed and Janelle was not helpful at all. i then tried to get Carmen the supervisor to help me and she did Nothing."
Cons: "The prior flight was delayed because after taxing, a crew wanted to remove an uncooperative passenger and went back to the gait. Subsequently, we arrived in Washington DC with only a few minutes before our next flight Albany was scheduled to leave. Because we had to do check our carry-on bags, we were 5 minutes later to the gait where the airline refused to wait for us to board although another passenger who did not have to wait for her bag was able to board the flight Albany. We therefore had to take a shuttle to Reagan international Airport, fly on a different airline to Hartford Connecticut, rent a car and drive 2 hours to finally reach our destination in Albany."
Pros: "The crew was nice and tried to be helpful. There were charging stations and free WiFi!!"
Cons: "I have a gluten allergy so I couldn’t eat the pretzels. Despite loading the United app I wasn’t able to get the free tv to load during the flight."
Pros: "Pilot candor"
Cons: "In flight service"
Pros: "The flight was smooth and staff was courteous."
Pros: "Overall flight was good but since previous flight was late and I had only one hour to get my luggage, go through customs, check back in and make the flight it was too stressful because nobody could help much. Also, the bag did not make my flight because person was not really in the hurry to get my luggage to the plane."
Cons: "The flight was supposed to arrive in Greenville at 6:41 pm, we never arrived until after 11 am."
Cons: "I had to wait at the gate for over an hour. UA lost my bags and trying to get reimbursed was difficult. The agent who checked me in was very rude."
Cons: "loudspeaker was way too loud - my hearing was fine before the flight...."
Pros: "On time flight. And the upgrade was wonderful"
Pros: "On schedule"
Cons: "This was an unfortunate and uncomfortable end to a great trip. The seating area is tight and the seats lack cushioning. I experienced more cramping and discomfort on this one hour flight than on all of the entire 9.5 hrs of preceding flights."
Pros: "Comfortable even though this was a small aircraft."
Cons: "Registration and baggage process at Dulles airport for 7 a.m. was chaotic. Unsure if the automated process relieves crowds or time to check-in. Lines were long and not enough attendants to take care of issues that were occurring at kiosks."
Cons: "It landed"
Pros: "Nothing"
Pros: "Accuracy of flight info, inline boarding, flight crew"
Cons: "Stinky cabin...small jet, ppl stink, they need to air out the cabin"
Pros: "I liked that I finally made it home despite all the drama."
Cons: "I didn't like that I booked a flight nearly 2 months ago to only find out I didn't have a seat. I do understand its legal but I don't get how you are putting customers first by causing this drama. I understand how that DR felt when your guards ripped him out of his seat. I spent nearly 3 hours trying to find babysitters and alternate rides all while the snotty lady at the desk kept saying "you may not be flying out today but I cant tell you for sure". So to insure the bottom line you overbook then bump people at your leisure? This little game effects many lives above and beyond just the passengers. I don't plan on booking with United ever again. Why would I? There are many other options that take customer service more seriously. I would love to speak to someone higher up in this organization. But, im sure that will never happen."
Pros: "Large selection of movies to keep me entertained throughout a 13 hour flight."
Cons: "The food did not sit well with me. Seats became uncomfortable after a while, made it difficult to sleep."
Pros: "Everything was smoothing sailing"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The service was good and overall flight was also smooth"
Pros: "The personal are very amability"
Pros: "Seating, mobile boarding pass"
Cons: "Waiting for a gate to become available 50 minutes after landing."
Pros: "Boarding was fine, crew was fine, snacks ok, smooth flight"
Pros: "We'll coordinated."
Pros: "With these short flights on small planes, the best we can ask for is an on-time departure and smooth flying - which is just what we got."
Pros: "The snack was nice for the short flight"
Cons: "We did not get Headsets at all. We asked flight attendant for headsets and he told us the would come around passing them out. Never happened"
Pros: "My flight in was smooth, seamless and amazing. The crew was so lovely."
Cons: "My flight out was a shot show that included a four hour delay and frantic running to gate changes. The staff was very unhelpful. The snack was awful."
Pros: "The Argentinian lady that help us at the counter. She safe us from missing the flight."
Cons: "The long waiting with customs and that the connection were too far away to drop the baggage"
Pros: "One of the friendliest and most customer friendly flights I've had in a long time."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "Pilot was excellent, didn't even feel the wheels touch down at RDU. It was a turbulent flight with thunderstorms (barely too bumpy for drink service) but Captain made it as smooth as possible and also kept us well informed what to expect. Plane was also on time, though many flights that day were late."
Cons: "4 hr delay on the flight, terrible experience never flying with United again."
Cons: "Flight was canceled and United offered no reasonable options for returning home that evening."
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Plane was freezing cold. Even with numerous empty seats I was assigned a seat in the last row next to the laboratory and not permitted to change. Flight attendant had a poor attitude and was generally not helpful."
Pros: "I like free wifi, aspecial food item like middle east food"
Cons: "The plane broke and we had to be towed. We didn't land until 2am. I had to get a hotel."
Pros: "Flight crew very pleasant"
Pros: "The ride itself is more than you expect for the price."
Cons: "We had problems with our bookings that changed our plans no less than four times that day. The personnel were, however, as helpful as they could be and eventually got us home."
Pros: "The crew personnel aboard the plane was friendly and the seats confortable."
Cons: "They made me pay $45 for a 16 inches carry on back that I have as my only luggage , because according to the counter employee, my handbag (purse) was too big so it was considered as a second carry on. I requested a waiver, because I’m an Army Veteran, a senior citizen, but it was denied by the counter employee."
Pros: "fast boarding for my zone"
Cons: "the flight attendants on this flight had a lot of attitude straight away, one in particular. was rude to several passengers at boarding and deplaning. it was a redeye, but they kept the overhead light on the entire flight and talked at top volume for the entire time. no one in the rows around me slept because of this."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Waiting on the tarmac for nearly an hour with no explanation. Flight crew was rude. Wouldn't serve water."
Pros: "The price. Nothing super bad."
Cons: "Delay leaving due to a door sensor. Got in an hour late, which was annoying. Limited, expensive menu anyway, but was out of what I wanted (jerky). Biggest complaint is the seats not reclining-that's really uncomfortable for a 3 hour flight.2nd biggest complaint is that having to pay for my seat and 1 carry on feels like a bait and switch over the ticket price."
Pros: "New plane, clean. Friendly crew"
Cons: "No frills, minimal comfort, a cup of water is free. Why do they still tell you to bring your seat back up when they don't even redline anymore?"
Cons: "On a holiday arrived early to avoid traffic and the bag counter wants open. Had to stand there and wait for service, just to print out tickets. I have always scanned directly from my phone. Huge incovience. Flight attendants served to much alcohol to parents with a three month old. Allowed to much traffic through the cabin."
Cons: "Having to pay for everything individually. The cost for our bag it way to much. With other airlines we get free coke products and little bags of pretzel. But with frontier we have to pay. Y'all are my last choice for flying"
Pros: "Crew was great. Price was even better"
Cons: "Tray tables too small."
Pros: "Fun and accommodating ticketing counter representatives and flight attendants."
Cons: "Horrible seats. Don't recline, very hard, no headrest, micro table, and super small by way of leg room (I'm only 5'8"). Ridiculous that even water in cups isn't brought around for free (unless you explicitly ask the crew for a cup of water). It was announced that all snacks and beverages are charged so that they can give customers great prices; low prices are always desirable, but when you take away things that are normally expected, it seems more like a concern with profit margin than customer pricing. to Carry ons are $40 a piece. The pilot boasted that we arrived 25 min early (we actually only landed 15 min early), but that there wasn't a gate available so we idled and got to a gate 10 min late (from the original time)."
Cons: "I left a bag in the airport, and they did not issue a guest pass to help me retrieve it. While the police and other flight agencies they should issue it. The person at the counter was indifferent, and lazy."
Cons: "40 minutes and still no bags"
Cons: "Charged for every additional thing so the cost of the ticket was not true."
Pros: "It boarded on time"
Cons: "-Little table to eat. -Seats and rows way too narrow -They charge for carry ons, snacks, and probably air. It was ridiculous how I was nickled and dimes. -The wait to drop the bags was excessive >25 minutes at IAD. This is sad being that I paid ahead of time."
Pros: "The crew was helpful when I didn't feel well. Helped with a plan if I needed one."
Cons: "There was nothing to not like. I think a small beverage should still be free but all in all I would use this group again."
Pros: "Getting off the plane was great."
Cons: "Almost missed my flight because there were so few attendents at the baggage drop. I waited 38 minutes just to drop my bag (excluding wait time to lrint my boarding pass). The attendents were rude. I was charged 40 dollars for a carry on bag. The seats were horrifically uncomfortable. I was given half a cup of water only on the flight. The lights were on and bright throughout the entire overnight flight. The seats don't decline, nor do they have much cushioning. Honestly, everything was so disorganized that when it came tome to land, I was scared it might be the last breath of my life because the quality of servuce had been so bad, I wasn't sure if the pilot was even certified to be a pilot. Luckily, I did not die. I will never fly Frontier again and am far less likely to use Kayak because of this horrible flight."
Pros: "Price was low"
Cons: "Extra fees go up closer to the flight. At online checkin, the website makes it seem like you need to pay more to select your seat. I did not select my seat and it selected one next to my 2 travelling partners so I'm glad I didn't waste that money. Each segment of the trip would have had a charge for selecting the seat, which adds up for 3 people. The seats were thin and very squished together- more than other airlines. If I was travelling alone, I'd pay for the seat upgrade because that's really close to be to a stranger. The tray table is about the size of a small tablet. Not big enough to put anything on. No drinks or snacks were included with the flight. There was no screen to watch shows. No wifi was provided."
Pros: "Crew was very entertaining and outgoing."
Cons: "Everything was great."
Cons: "Hidden seat and carry on fees. Come on now. What is the likely hood someone doesn't have a bag flying 2500 miles. You're going to charge for that in addition to the ticket? Plus, yes plus another charge to select a seat. Super dumb and honestly a bit childish. Put your entire price online and let people pick. Also note zero wifi. I know you're a lower tear airlines but it's 2016! Give the people the all in price and if you won't give them entertainment or wifi make worth their wild. Also note, the tray table was about the size of a tablet, I couldn't even use my computer to do local work during the flight. I appreciate the safe flight but from a high level: 1: make your online prices more transparent. 2: if you're going to be lower tear, make it clear that wifi and infighting entertainment isn't included. People will still choose to fly cheap, but to burry hidden charges is horrible."
Pros: "Checking in was fast and easy. Boarding too. On time."
Cons: "No food or drinks except if you spend a lot of $"
Cons: "Don't fly, they charge you for everything ,even a carry-on $65 and they are super rude. They made my brother miss his flight because he was 35 minutes before take off instead of there 40 minute rule. Don't do it !!!!"
Cons: "Next time i will travel with jetblue airline bcoz first luggage with carry on is free even for economic ticket. But for frontier must pay even for carry on. Jetblue serves free snack and drink. But F. Airline had no thing"
Pros: "i arrived almost 40 minutes early than the stated arrival time...unfortunately my ride was not there based on the flight's posted arrival time"
Cons: "no participation in tsa pre check. was not aware ahead of flight, otherwise would not have used airline. no complimentary drinks. boarding was 20 minutes early, another inconvenience as a result of having to go through security check. will not use airline again."
Pros: "The crew was very helpful."
Cons: "The pilot brought the plane into the airport extremely fast and jerky. I was afraid. My daughter was afraid. People in front of us were afraid. If he had warned us, we may not have been so nervous. Was he trying to make up time because of the weather problems in DC? It wasn't worth it."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Hidden fees for bags and seats. Make sure you read their website and figure out a game plan for your bags of you don't want to pay. Pack light!"
Pros: "Crew was good Plane left on time"
Cons: "Boarding, Boarding, Boarding Everyone with a carry on being forced to pay Yelling and screaming at gate agent about baggage fees Total cluster FXXX in the gate area."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for nearly 4 hours, without notice or explanation for most of that time - even though it was a foregone conclusion, because a replacement aircraft had to be flown from CA to FL for maintenance reasons. Then, the counter personnel were arrogant and offensive in dealing with disappointed passengers (who would not be arriving at their destination until 2 am). Frontier is absolutely the worst airline I have dealt with in the past several years, and I am not likely to ever book a flight on Frontier again - especially since the hidden fees tend to make the ultimate price nearly the same as other airlines."
Pros: "Ariving safely at my destinations"
Cons: "Price gouging .. sneaky tactics...what no snacks or water! OK snacks maybe... but water really?"
Cons: "Our flight was significantly delayed do to mechanical issues and they offered little feedback and zero sympathy. The plane is cheap, seats uncomfortable, did not recline, no entertainment, etc. Very low budget airline. I will not ever fly Frontier again."
Cons: "Long delay, was given food vouchers when restaurants were closing and could not use. When we reached destination trains were closed had to climb down stairs"
Pros: "Finally had a Frontier flight that didn't have any issues. I don't fly them that much for that specific reason, but thankfully, this one was uneventful."
Cons: "I had to have my friend who was driving take my bag back to avoid paying like $60+ to check it. (Flew SWA to and Frontier back)"
Pros: "I knew about the extra cost for baggage so that was fine. If I didn't that might have been an issue, but after flying Spirit, Frontier is in another ball park. If there is ever a choice between Frontier and Spirit, I will always choose Frontier."
Pros: "This was my first time flying Frontier... my overall experience was good. However, I was unaware that it was an a-la carte airline so minor difficulty maneuvering at first. Seating is a little tight but bearable. Crew was pleasant. Can do without food/beverage but need more comfortability/seating... Overall rating... 3.5"
Pros: "This is in no way a bad relection on Frontier. Kayak sold me the tickets for a certain price and when I started to check in for my flight I had to pay additional for seats and carry on luggage. I ended up paying $102 more for two people on my one way reservation the night before the flight. Kayak should at least make their customers aware that this will happen as it is a lot of money!!!! The flight itself was on time, with a curteous and funny crew. No complains there."
Pros: "The seats were of newer material."
Cons: "Newer but very hard seats. I'm 6'2" and the seats didn't recline and my knees were hitting the seat in front of me...a lot. On a red eye flight, this was torturous. The seat backs did not go high enough for my head either. The flight was delayed 40 minutes as well."
Pros: "I had a good experience overall with the flight being on time, the crew being kind, and the boarding process bring smooth."
Cons: "However, this was my first time flying Frontier and while I was happy with the flight price, I was unhappy to learn that I had to pay to carry on my bag ( a first), to select any seat, not just premium seating and pretty much everything else. I understand the need to stay competitive, but this felt like I was being nickeled and dimed for everything."
Pros: "It was my first frontier flight. I appreciate the rates that frontier offers. However, the charge you for everything else (seats, bags, food, etc). I can complain though especially withbthe rate I received for a riundtrip ticket. The flight was not bad, it was 1 1/2 so I was looking for anything fancy. A longer trip I definitely would pay for comfort and amenities. The crew was pleasant and the plane was clean."
Cons: "There wasn't much I didnt like other than the charge for everything, but as i mentioned before how can i complain when my roundtrip ticket was so inexpensive. If you have no bags then you are good. This is definitely a good airline for business travelers who are moving back and forth for work. Although there is no wifi."
Cons: "The price did not list the additional fee for carry-on. On my round-trip flight, the carry-on fee was 45% of the price of the ticket itself. That is ridiculous. I will never fly Frontier with carry-on again. Maybe just never fly with them generally."
Pros: "Arrived early"
Pros: "Because I am handicapped, I am often unsure of the welcome or help I will receive. On this flight the two male attendants were very helpful and gracious. In fact, one of the attendants went out of his way to help me with my tote and anything else I needed. Trust me this does not often happen. Usually it is the passengers that give me a hand rather than the staff, so this was a welcome surprise."
Cons: "Again, because I am handicapped, I need assistance getting down the ramp and on board the plane. Usually, someone escorts me or wheels me to the door of the plane. On this flight, no one showed up to help me get down the ramp, so I was on my own, and it was a difficult trip at best. I barely made it, but the assistance I received on board made up for the negligence in boarding."
Pros: "Flight was fine, we landed early."
Cons: "It took over an hour for our bags to come up after the flight."
Pros: "Awesome price and friendly crew."
Cons: "Nothing is included. Seats are narrow and uncomfortable since the armrests will not move out of the way."
Pros: "Very good flight. Nice crew. Relatively on-time departure/arrival."
Cons: "Like the others who've commented, I was not aware that there were charges for seats, carry-on, and all food and beverages (excluding water). The additional charges added another $110.00 to the cost of my ticket. This is my first time flying Frontier. I may fly again in the future, but customers need to be aware of these additional costs."
Pros: "Cheap"
Cons: "Frontier nickel and dimes their customers for EVERYTHING. The seats are tiny, and look like they are molded out of a solid piece of plastic, and feel like it too. Being charged to select your seat on the plane is too far..."
Pros: "Peppy flight attendants."
Cons: "Like other reviewers here, I was extremely disappointed with Frontier. The round trip flight I purchased was advertised at $178. At no point during the purchase of this flight was I explicitly and directly warned that Frontier charges, at minimum, $30 (each way) to CARRY-ON luggage that must be placed in the overhead compartment. I do not know the cost to check baggage, but I assume it is comparable to the carry-on fee. In my ethically driven opinion, the round rip price of the trip should have been advertised at $238 to account for the baggage fees. I WAS MISLED. To make matters worse, because I was blissfully unaware of Frontier's carry-on policy and failed to read the fine print while checking in online, I WAS CHARGED $60 AT THE GATE to carry on my roller board. When I asked the gate agent to explain the charge, she - without eye contact and with a mean tone - condescendingly attributed the charge to my stupidity. She proceeded to spit this attitude to the DOZENS OF OTHER CUSTOMERS WHO WERE UNAWARE OF CHARGE AND HAD TO PAY AT THE GATE. In sum, I will end up paying an additional $90 in carry-on baggage fees. I will not fly Frontier again."
Pros: "Got us there ahead of schedule."
Cons: "Pack them in like sardines."
Pros: "Plane was clean and looked new. Pleasant flight crew. Low fare was great!"
Cons: "Seating area cramped and uncomfortable. Narrow seats pressed me up against seat mate (awkward with a stranger). Tiny arm rests and tray table. Too close to seat in front of me with little leg room (and I am not tall). For this reason, I would not choose Frontier again if I had another option."
Pros: "I got from point A to point B as scheduled"
Cons: "They are so no frills that you have to buy a can of soda."
Pros: "none"
Cons: "I can tell you this is the most terrible flight experience ever. They are just interested in how to withdraw money from you. If you make a mistake, it is a great chance for them to make money. They have no intention to help you and to make you comfortable. You are just a cash cow to them. I swear I will not use this terrible flight."
Cons: "They don't even go around and offer you a water. They're pretty much nazis about the personal item rule. If my personal item fits underneath the seat, it should be fine. I would quit my first day if I had to be a worker at Frontier dealing with angry customers like I witnessed."
