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."
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: "I was given a complimentary upgrade."
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."

Pros: "The fact that there were no snakes on this plane :-)"
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: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Nothing everything was fine"
Cons: "Being scammed by the Chinese, China Southern"
Pros: "The airport in Belize is much more managemable than most in the US."
Cons: "Slightly crowded waiting area"
Cons: "My selection was not available"
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: "Greets you nicely, on time, caring staffs"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Having to pick up our luggage when getting off plane from Sydney, just to walk them around the corner to be put on flight to ATL. (I thought luggage handlers were paid for this). Luggage had already been put through security!! This put us in a TOTAL RUSH just to make it on the plane ourselves!"
Pros: "Courteous employee interactions from bag check/gate to arrival!"
Cons: "Everything was truly GREAT"
Cons: "Small, cramped seating"
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."
Cons: "No other snack choice, just pretzel. Can we have some cookies?"
Pros: "The flight was on time, nice crew."

Cons: "Crew not very friendly but thats normal in AA"
Pros: "Great seat space"
Cons: "No wifi"
Cons: "Never got a complimentary beverage. The cart only delivered to some of the rows"
Pros: "Boarding the plane from the back first saved longer queues. Unfortunately people cheat and the boarding officers don't send them back to the right queue. Toilets were clean. Staff excellent. I was glad all my flights were stuffed to the gunnels. Presumably that is best for the environment rather than lots of planes with fewer passengers in each."
Cons: "Passport control with new computer ID checks was fast. Baggage was slow coming. I booked through Netflights and they didn't book me a good seat. If I could have changed it myself they should have told me. On the way to Tampa on 3rd March I couldn't check in within 24 hours and had to wait half an hour while they changed our plane. BA used to do short science programmes which I loved. Shame these have finished."

Cons: "3hour weather delay!"
Cons: "My wife and I traveled with bicycles packed in standard boxes and got hit with a whopping $230 charge per bicycle out of the blue. We were expecting no charge because the bicycles were our only check-in baggage for the trip. Couldn't believe the lack of transparency with which we got hit with this charge. Qantas, Air New Zealand, and other airlines we've taken bikes with us on our flights have charged nothing when we traveled in the same fashion. So, if you are a bicyclist traveling with your bicycle, I'd avoid the United-Lufthansa duo."

Pros: "IT WAS GREAT"
Pros: "On time courteous staff excellent service"
Pros: "Comfort was good"

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: "Happy people"
Pros: "Service was excellent and it was on time"
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: "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...."
Cons: "Check in process was at kiosk was long wait"
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: "Accuracy of flight info, inline boarding, flight crew"
Cons: "Stinky cabin...small jet, ppl stink, they need to air out the cabin"

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: "I slept through it!!!"
Pros: "It was fine"
Pros: "great service"
Cons: "nothing to mention"
Pros: "The hospitality"
Pros: "Had a delay"
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 delay"
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: "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."
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."
Cons: "One n one half hr delay on take off from Atl to ny"
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."
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."
