Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "We PAID $30/each to check 2 bags, both ways, so $120 total. Then at the gate, BOTH WAYS, Delta Gate Reps allowed people to check bags for FREE, & pick up at bag claim, just like WE PAID TO DO. NO MORE DELTA FOR US!"

Pros: "Customer services"
Pros: "Everything else"
Pros: "I board sky priority or sooner so it always goes well."

Pros: "Delta fo"
Cons: "The service was terrible. Also a ripped off base on I was expecting to be treated as if I was on Virgin nothing compares to it . Delta plane making a loud noise we can even heard anything when pilot does announcement. I want my money back or I should be reinbuise some how."

Pros: "This was a redeye flight that was very smooth."

At last count he bumped me 7 times while I was trying to get some sleep on this 5 hour redeye flight. I was going to confront him on his next trip but finally fell asleep before then."
Pros: "Crew was good."
Cons: "Plane was late"
Cons: "Never announced we were over 10Kfeet and could turn on electronic equipment, attendant seemed cross when her question "pretzels or coockie?" was answered "yes.""
Pros: "Comfortable flight, plenty of leg room and I live the individual chargers at each chair."
Cons: "When I pay more for a direct flight, I expect my flight to be non stop. Delta changed my flight and added a layover but I didn't receive any recompense from the airline. Seems very odd."
Pros: "Wonderful flight attendants"
Pros: "Good experience overall. Pleasant staff. Movie features were wonderful and helped pass the time."
Pros: "I'm always happy when I get a Delta flight that has the in flight entertainment. Good selection of tv shows, movies and music. Makes the time go by fast"
Cons: "Can't really think of anything I don't like the"
Pros: "Flight attendant was excellent and pilots did a great job with weather"
Pros: "The service. The plane (seemed like an international plane). Food options. The service and the service. There was a problem getting on, they allowed premium members to board but when I got to the plane, I was scolded by the cleaning crew lady (maybe the Mgr) that they were not ready and that she had informed 'them' of that and that no one is allowed to board while they are cleaning."
Pros: "Free food for all on this flight! Turkey sandwich was actually quite good! Great legroom, flight attendants, and pilot. Free great movie for all."
Cons: "Flight was delayed indefinitely. Delta supposedly booked me on united flight but made an error."
Cons: "Spent $25 on Main Cabin Preferred when I thought it was Economy Comfort. Did not really change my experience and i'm out $25."
Pros: "Not much"
Pros: "exit row - good leg room; new storage compartment was good."
Cons: "New seats = hard; got uncomfortable after about an hour. Wish there was a way to disconnect folding tray from behind seat - person behind kept dropping it, drumming on it, open it and closing it - really a nuisance."
Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Lost luggage,, will be delivered to our house"
Pros: "People crowd the boarding area like it was the last flight out of hell. Delta needs a saner way of doing business."
Pros: "Not much to like since the flight was canceled."
Cons: "Flight was canceled. The system tried to automatically rebook us but gave us a new itinerary from our original departure point, apparently un aware that we had already left. So, we were stuck in Atlanta airport with no good way to our final destination. Instead of waiting for 22 hours for the next available flight, or driving for 7 hours from Atlanta to Cincinnati, we had to fly into another city and drive to Cincinnati from there AT OUR OWN EXPENSE. It was a rebooking nightmare."
Pros: "The crew was amazing. We had a two hour delay on the ground due to thunderstorms, but the pilot kept us informed and the flight attendants answered any questions and helped with everything. The pilot even walked down the isle asking people if they had any questions."
Cons: "We booked our tickets through American Express over 3 months before the flight. Delta has a new policy that these tickets are not allowed to have certain privileges that tickets purchased on their own site have. Unbeknown to us, one of these is the ability to select your seat. On the ride from CVG to FLL we were assigned seats in the back of the plane, but at least we were next to each other. On the way back, we were not assigned a seat at all. We arrived to the airport almost 4 hours before the flight and were still not assigned a seat and were told we would have to speak to the gate agent. Even we when spoke to the gate agent, they still did not have a seat. It was not until we had already started the boarding process that they called us up and told us that we were going to be sitting 5 rows apart, both in a middle seat."
Pros: "I could have flown United direct for about the same price - but chose to fly Delta via Atlanta because, well, it's DELTA. Delta's first class is really first class - it's more than just a bigger seat .... the staff from the counter to the cabin crew all treat you like you're a valued first class customer. The experience of flying today is mostly like being shoved into a subway train in Japan with no genuine gratitude for my patronage. Not with Delta - they really do go above and beyond and it is not lost on me."
Pros: "I have not flown Delta in more than 4 years and was pleasently surprised at how good the service was. Check in firendly, Boarding on time or before."
Pros: "Mostly everything was ok"
Cons: "Delay in taking off was probably the only issue."
Pros: "Rebooked to Atlanta because of a delay."
Cons: "Delta notifications and Kayak notifications were giving me conflicting information, however once I arrived at the Houston airport a Delta representative clarified my issues."
Pros: "The customer service was great. Due to it being winter flights are expected to be delayed, Delta kept on sending me updates via text so there was no surprises when I arrived at the airport."
Pros: "Boarding was efficient and plane was on time."
Cons: "Seats were old and dated and there was no entertainment offered."
Pros: "Really liked the Airbus A320 (or whatever we were riding on). Plane, crew and experience were fantastic."
Pros: "When we were landing!!!!"
Cons: "To crowded, seats to to!!! close need personal space not everyone baths!!##!!"
Pros: "All flights were on time. Captain of plane rides were awesome at their jobs. Flight attendants were courteous and friendly."
Pros: "The flight was fine--on time, smooth, no delays. My only complaint is there is leg room, but that is a problem shared by all airlines."
Pros: "Nice crew smooth flight"
Cons: "Everything good"
Pros: "Kind crew."
Pros: "Seat cramped"
Cons: "It took only 20 minutes to fly there but 20 minutes waiting to get off the ground in 25 minutes to circle around Philadelphia before landing. Not good when they reduce the size of the seats to 17 inches most people shoulders are wider than that. No food service no snack no drink and just snarky empl"
Pros: "It was 3 hours delayed"
Cons: "Fly in time"
Cons: "maintenance. We left late due to a maintenance issue. Once the flight attendant notification alarm went off for 15 minutes."
Pros: "Crew tried very hard."
Cons: "Delays. Get on the bus. Get off the bus. Get back on the bus."
Cons: "Flight was delayed, but there was clear weather in both Boston and DC. Did not get home until after 1 AM, completely exhausted."
Cons: "This flight was delayed by almost 5 hours. While I understand there are some delays sometimes, this was the ONLY flight to Greensboro out of DCA, and the times kept changing throughout the day, even though the gate agents knew that the issue was that the crew was delayed. There should be backup crew available and when there are delays, the passengers should be kept informed. There should be other flight options available when this happens. I never received an apology from anyone I encountered throughout the process, and some personnel were rude even though I was polite."
Cons: "Flight delayed multiple times and then again upon landing at destination."
Pros: "Perfect from start to finish"
Pros: "Liked sitting in the bigger leg room. Short flight was a bonus."
Cons: "Sat on tarmac a lot at both airports. They boarded all 9 groups so back to back, there was almost no line speration."
Pros: "Plane and fact that pilot was able to make up lost time"
Cons: "Plane had plenty of room for carry on bags. No need for valet bag check."
Pros: "The crew was helpful and fast in turning plane over."
Cons: "Flight delayed from 1015 pm departure to 1135pm, so I had to making my arrival at 1am. Hard are the person picking me up. Despite the fact that they moved my flight they closed the Aa lounge at 10 and kick you out, even though they moved my flight"
Pros: "Vegetarian meal was actually good!"
Cons: "They didn’t give me ice cream :("
Pros: "Big comfortable plane."
Cons: "No entertainment, no food at all."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Rickity old plane. Needs updates badly. No drink service options. Cash only bar? Hello, this is the 21st century calling the 20th... You can have your plane and payment methods beck."
Pros: "Nothing really, very upsetting start of a vacation."
Cons: "The layover in Boston was an hour or so, but the miscommunication between American Airlines and Iberia was such, that my luggage never left the US. I am very upset cause Iberia did not even provided any good ground help in Lisbon - Portugal, with the most rude personnel I ever had to deal with that was actually annoyed I was complaining they lost my luggage, they offer no assisatance."
Pros: "Smooth and easy flight."
Pros: "The flight was quick once we took off!"
Cons: "I did not enjoy the long wait for the flight. It was delayed about 3 times, which put us back about 2 hours. T"
Cons: "Food was not good at all."
Cons: "It was not British airline but was contracted to American airline. It lacked class."
Pros: "The person at the luggage area, she gave me the ticket, very nice and polite the only professional person."
Cons: "Didn't let me take my hand luggage, small that complies with the size and told me only at gate, I said I had things that could brake and showed no concern and they would send it to my final distinction instead giving it to me in the end of first flight...I've been traveling around the world and the disrespect for customers and poor service of most of US carrier is amazing... some African companies are much better. on the second flight, almost two hours delay, the plane from philly to Lisbon, old, just s few tv screens, exactly like the North Korean airways..., bad food, my tray stayed with me the whole fly, flight attendant not very professional with no concern for customers and job."
Cons: "Lost connection"
Pros: "Overall the flight was good, on time"
Cons: "Nothing at this stage"
Cons: "Cannot believe how American a treated it's passengers. 3 hour delay to JFK. No apologies. Missed connection to Paris. Not any customer service agents to be found in JFK at 11:30 pm. No explanation on what next. No hotel.. Nada. I'll never travel with American again."
Pros: "Boarding and debar king was quick."
Cons: "Attendant was surly, no coffee, no continental breakfast as indicated on the reservation. Very disappointed with in-flight service."
Pros: "The Resolution team assisted me initially when I arrived to correct an issue from my online attempt. The agent printed bag checks for me to my final destination and told me how to get needed boarding pass for the final stage. How wonderful to have pleasant and professional personal attention."
Pros: "Boarded quickly. Seats were comfortable. Friendly flight attendants. It was a quick flight, no entertainment used. Only had a cookie and water for food. Don't know about the other things."
Pros: "The gentleman at the departure desk was first rate. Polite and accommodating he was just what you would expect from an airline. Especially American Airlines. The crew was the same and I was happy to have decided to use AA."
Cons: "The departure was delayed approximately an hour."
Cons: "Attempted to make my connection which was in another terminal. Could not get onboard as they shut the doors. My rerouted flight was in a different terminal. Overall a very disappointing travel experience."
Pros: "Crew was ok, did their best considering the circumstances, but even they were getting aggravated and were short with the passengers near the end."
Cons: "The Washington airport is horrible. The gate we left from was not a gate but a series of doors that buses came to. This wouldn't be so bad if they were able to handle it in an orderly way, but the airport showed complete incompetence in organizing anything and there were people everywhere trying to find the right door which kept changing on them, and the times kept changing...it was a mess. Then, when we finally got on the plane and were about to take off, the air traffic control tower called and said that their flight path was incorrect and to not take off...but didn't give them a new flight path for nearly two hours as we sat on the runway. Nationalize the airports in DC, fire the whole lot and start fresh, I'd say."
Pros: "The flight was short, only 1.35 hours."
Cons: "To start, the boarding process is a chaos. First class and executive platinums should board first, but of course the gate agent was completely clueless and rude, even to an ExPlat. Althiugh the flight is only 1.35 hours, I was surprised that flight attendants didn't even make an effort to offer a drink service. No turbulence or anything, just seems they were lazy."
Pros: "The flight minus was very fast, 26 minutes"
Pros: "The crew was great. The flight attendants were pleasant and helpful and the pilot gave timely and useful announcements. The coffee and free cookies were quite good as well (surprisingly, especially for the coffee)."
Cons: "As a frequent United flyer, I was a bit taken aback to see that AA charges for their movie streaming to your personal device."
Cons: "This plane and especially its seats are the worst. If your taller than 5'5" I recommend to look for other options."
Pros: "The flight was only ten minutes late."
Cons: "Gate 35x at National just doesn't work. A woman fell on the ice trying to get to the shuttle bus, on which we sat for a long time before leaving for the plane. After a chaotic boarding, the plane sat around as the flight became late, and the pilots gave no explanation for the delay or hint of when we might take off."
Pros: "Pilot kept us in the know given congestion at LGA. And kept us safe because of expected turbulence."
Cons: "I feel like the airline should know LGA is backed up since they flight mostly the same schedule daily. Flight AA2174 should be pushed to a later time so passengers don't have to sit on the tarmac."
Cons: "Airline never assigned me a seat. They just told me what sea to sit in when I was boarding. I was concerned I would be bumped since when checking the airline said it could not assign a seat."
Cons: "Long delay at departing airport due to no flight crew"
Pros: "From start to finish the flight faced problems: unscheduled stop for refueling, change in planes for mechanical problems, emergency medical intervention, and more. Yet at every stage the flight crew and gate staff did an outstanding job communicating and seeking to alleviate passenger woes. With delays, we missed connections, and yet AA worked wonderfully to find alternatives. At the end of the day, we arrived at our destination, and even our luggage made the trip successfully! Wonderful courtesy, adaptability, and determination to serve. Thank you."
Pros: "It was a short hop over to New York, so that's the only positive thing I can say."
Cons: "The plane was tiny, seats uncomfortable. Had to be bused to the plane, only 1 bus provided and had to be packed like sardines. Overall, a terrible experience."
Pros: "The landing in Phoenix finally here!!"
Cons: "The 5 plus hour flight but had to endure to get to Phoenix!!"
Pros: "It got me home, and around the time I was originally supposed to arrive"
Cons: "It left late, without any explanation as to why. It's pretty pathetic that I was thankful that AA got me home at all, considering they almost left me stranded in the wrong city, and the only reason I wasn't was no thanks to AA and thanks to Kayak."
Pros: "Getting seated in first class to help "balance the plane" because there were not enough people to fill the plane."
Cons: "Waiting several hours to fix a problem that was caused by detaching the jet bridge from the plane too soon. The bag I agreed to check in San Francisco due to a crowded flight must have been left out in the pouring rain in Dallas or Cincinnati. When I got home the bag and everything in it was soaking wet."
Pros: "Uneventful, reasonably timely, not overcrowded, cheerful and friendly flight attendant"
Cons: "Long, needless wait in the cold, crowded, standing room only shuttle bus"
Pros: "Surprised that my flight was so painless! Boarding process was extremely easy (then again, it always is from Kansas City). Staff for professional and kind, the flight was not completely full so it didn't take long to to board and the flight landed on time."
Pros: "crew was nice."
Cons: "plane was small and had no room for carry on flight was late."
Pros: "Your sirvey is not well designed; there was no food or entertainment on the flight yet we must give it a rating?"
Cons: "Two hours late"
Pros: "Smart way they did boarding kept a bunch of people from crowding around the gate. Maple snacks on flight were tasty."
Cons: "Really cramped seating."
Cons: "Delays, seat assignment changed, the food"
Pros: "The on-time arrival"
Cons: "Having to check our bags due to lack of overhead space which was announced before anyone boarded the aircraft. Had they provided our bags to us when we exited the plane, or told us in advance that there would be no space and they would be offering free bag check, that would have mitigated the situation. Instead they wait till the last minute costing us valuable time. In the future, they should pay us the 25 dollar bag fee when they arbitrarily make this decision."
Pros: "Plenty of room, great cabin service"
Cons: "Plane was way late, several gate changes had me chasing my tail in Chicago...and that is not a friendly airport for incoming international flights on a good day."
Pros: "Excellent United customer service, Reagan National, ease of check-in"
Cons: "The aircraft was older, but United is in the process of renewing their fleet."
Pros: "Arrived early, friendly crew"
Cons: "Made me check my bag when there was PLENTY of space to carryon but they said space was limited"

Cons: "The flight was delayed over an hour, which caused me to run to catch my connection."
Cons: "Well easier to say what I like. U've got a nice crew at least on our flight, very professional and nice. Other than that, well u have got lots of things to improve"
Pros: "I liked the fact that I had a window seat... at the way back. Also that I was at least offered snacks, or whatever was left because they ran out."
Cons: "They ran out of meals and snacks, both paid and free. We all pay a price, yet seats and class determine whether you will get your moneys worth. I guess the point is that I at least made it home."
Cons: "Very cold on flights, no blankets"
Cons: "It was one of the most horrible flights. Delays, sitting in the plane being really hot, did not offer water. Newaur airport change of terminals is like being in the middle ages, old, hot, no signage, bus steps, Really, reaaly awfulWill think twice before flyinf United again Other than that they got me here, late"
Cons: "The flight left an hour and 15 minutes after the scheduled time."
Pros: "Flight attendants were trying hard to assist passengers."
Cons: "There was a malfunction of ventilation system leaving the plane at unsafe temperature on tarmac. Pilot literally screamed at passenger who was inquiring appropriately about allowing us to Deborah the plane."
Pros: "The flight attendant was excellent. Much better than most of your other ones."
Pros: "The gate agent was so nice and polite my connecting flight was late but he still allowed me to grab something to drink. He saved my life I had been sick since I left Dallas and needed something as I felt i was maybe dehydrated."
Cons: "My Stewardess on the flight seem despondent. I am for some coffee she replied that they had that in first class but it was crazy cause I just looked thru the pamphlet and it said Now Serving Illy coffee which I love. Then I saw her give another passenger a cup of coffee she looked at me with an attitude like I just made that... Then she brought it. This was crazy because if she wasn't black I would have called her racist then again done black people are racist to they own..SMH"
Cons: "They lost my bag.. I checked two bags and one bag did not make it on my flight. Very frustrated."
Cons: "they canceled my flight and couldn't reschedule. I had to pay for a rental car and drive to my destination which has ended up costing me more money and the flight was already very expensive to begin with."
Cons: "Multiple delays and gate changes; chaotic boarding; shabby plane condition (bathroom looked held together with duct tape)."
Pros: "Flight was short."
Cons: "It was behind schedule. Cut it very close on making my connection to Dublin."
Pros: "Crew was helpful and seats were spacious and comfortable"
Cons: "Flight was oversold and late"
Pros: "nothing really"

Pros: "Excellent service and friendly staff"
Cons: "Absolutely not enough room to stretch your legs"
Cons: "Boarding went quickly but then waited almost 35 minutes on the plane to take off. Once the plane landed there was again a wait to pull into the gate. Spent more time waiting on the plane than the flight itself."
Pros: "The flights were smooth and on time, even Early into mbj"
Cons: "Had purchased a round-trip ticket. While in D.C. on a family trip to bury my mother in Arlington National Cemetery, my brother had a massive heart attack. After 3 weeks, he was stable enough to come back to Houston on an air ambulance. As I travelled with him on the air ambulance, I was unable to use the return portion of my round-trip ticket. I provided documentation of the situation and requested a refund. I received $106 on a $715 ticket. There was no explanation of how they determined the refund, but I'm not happy."
Pros: "Your Crew!!!! From the lady who checked me in to the last flight attendant saying thank you for flying with us... you should really be proud of your staff!"
Pros: "The flight was very ontime and very comfortable, I had an excellent experiance with United"
Pros: "Conplimentary drinks and flight time. Most everything was generally fantastic"
Cons: "Choice of snacks."
Cons: "Small seats, delayed for three hours and got in so late!"
Pros: "The boarding staff in the airport were excellent and very helpful. Wish I would have got the gate attendant name because she was great. There was a 30 minute delay for departure due to a maintenance issue but we arrived in Cincinnati only 10 minutes late."
Cons: "The aircraft was very cramped and uncomfortable the seats were terrible. The flight crew was being very unprofessional laughing and giggling while giving the mandatory safety instructions. The pilots did a great job getting us to Cincinnati only 10 minutes late after 30 minute delay in DC"
Pros: "Crew was very nice. kept us up to date about the delays"
Cons: "flight was delayed due to weather. overpriced drinks. Crew kept bumping Cteemy elbow with the drink cart"
Cons: "Plane to be late not a good information online be nervous is horrible people in the count not nice very rude"

Pros: "The stewardess offered me a free refil"
Cons: "No wifi, we sat 15 feet from the gate for 15 min waiting for someone to move the jet bridge. Did they not know we were showing up? Was it a surprise? Then I had to wait 30 more minutes for my luggage to arrive."
Pros: "Great ticket price Airline on time performance Flight attendance service"
Pros: "crew were pleasant"
Cons: "VERY small seat width (and i'm 5'8" and 145 lbs. I was on the aisle and both crew and passengers hit my shoulder almost every time they passed. No media without paying. Audio via headset was very poor. At one point thought I was going to need to change the date of my flight. Change fee alone would have been $200 on a $230 ticket (plus cost of new ticket)."
Pros: "Left on time arrived early attendants personable and friendly"
Cons: "t was delayed without informing me i stay in airport 6hours"
Pros: "It was clean and the stewardesses were nice."
Cons: "I curbside checked my bag, and when I got to Cincinnati, it never got off the plane. I had to ask several times for them to go back into the plane and look again. They finally did and found it. But it was just a nightmare."
Pros: "I liked how both outgoing and returning flight were early/on time! Crew was very friendly. Plane clean. Will definitely fly Frontier in the future."
Cons: "Of course, paying for carry on is absolutely ridiculous. I don't really drink pop while on plane, BUT $2.99 per can of pop is robbery. I can't even tell you how greedy that is."
Pros: "The crew was super nice, everything ran smoothly and the aircraft was clean."
Cons: "This was my first time using this airline and you get what you pay for. Honestly I don't mind paying bag fees and food, but paying to choose a seat next to my husband was a little much."
Cons: "I rode first class and usually do. The gals were TERRIBLE. They were nice but they were so bad at their job. I was systematically served last and didn't have a drink until hours had gone by. It was a joke. I was laughing by the end of the ride at their incompetence. horrible flight."
Pros: "On time and nice spacious cabins"
Cons: "The seats are uncomfortable"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Flight delay. Missed my flight and attendant at gate 16d was very rude when she returned. I could have got on plane If she had been at her station."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 2 hours, which I didn't get the text message until after I had dropped the rental car and was waiting in line to check my luggage. so many hidden fees.... would have been cheaper to go with delta."

Pros: "Everyone was friendly, courteous, and professional."
Cons: "No warning of carry-on charges."
Pros: "It was cheap if you don't check any bags or bring an extra carry on."
Cons: "The check in process was brutal. Line went from the back wall of check in all the way to the opening near security at MCO. Understaffed, staffed in the wrong places, NO staff helping with kiosks, and we almost missed out flight because it took so long."
Cons: "Canceled the flight for no reason."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly and on time"
Cons: "Having flown multiple times on Frontier, I find it odd that you never hear anything from the cockpit. Like: Welcome passengers. estimated time in flight, crusing altitude, estimated arrival time, weather at destination, starting decent, etc. Of course, as an ex-military and corporate aviation pilot, the more I know the more comfortable and connected I feel."
Pros: "flight arrived on time"
Cons: "Flight arrived on time sat on tarmac for an hour waiting for a gate. Checked luggage took another hour. three hours in destination airport before we could get to our car. this airline sucks the big weenie!!"
Cons: "Clean the seats off!"
Cons: "I had to wait over an hour to get my bag at the San Francisco airport"
Pros: "On both flights the crew was extremely friendly, fun and accommodating. Both flights took off on time and our flight home landed 45 minutes early!"
Cons: "The seats are not the most comfortable. You do have to watch out for all the added fees: checked bags, carryon bags, seats (you actually have to pay separately for your seat), food, drinks, etc.. When comparing costs - you need to add everything up. In our case, Frontier was still around $150 less than Delta. But don't be fooled by the low fare when you still have to buy a seat and pay for baggage."
Pros: "left on time"
Cons: "arrived 40 min late. uncomfortable seat. seat area too small. price is not the price. baggage took forever. never again"
Cons: "Plane comfort is average."
Pros: "Price was good for a direct flight"
Cons: "Pretty much everything else. I checked in online - where they clearly state that there will be a bag drop for prepaid checked luggage. There was not. Instead there were three people behind the counter (only two were actually taking anyone from the long line) - who seemed completely confused. They at least knew that the gate had changed, but they didn't know where it had been changed to. I found it. It then proceeded to change 3 more times. The final change was not announced, we all just followed another passenger who had seen the change listed on the airport departure screen. The final gate was "39" a door in a hallway that opened up onto a tarmac. We waited there about 30 minutes (after the scheduled boarding time) before the door opened. They had no scanner for passes, so the attendant had to write things down on paper when we showed him our passes!! The actual cabin is tight, but that's to be expected. What wasn't expected was the random turning off and on of overhead lights throughout the (red-eye) flight. It was like a torture technique. To round out this great experience, the flight attendant instructed us to de-board the plane in order. Row 1 (left side) then row 1 (right), etc. This clearly pissed off many passengers who had no carry-on luggage and could have just walked off while those with stuff in overheads waited. When I finally got to exit the plane, I heard a guy somewhere behind me say "f-you" to the crew as they gave us the traditional "have a good day". We all felt the same, just didn't say so."
Cons: "It was almost 3 hours dleyed and nobody explain why, and we walk to airplan from outside it was terable."
Pros: "The employees were nice."
Cons: "The line at the airport to drop off my luggage (which was prepaid) was crazy long as most people had not prepaid and some were trying to pay with cash (which Frontier does not accept). Even tho I had my boarding pass printed and luggage paid for I waited almost an hour in this line - and I arrived 2 hours 1/2 early. After arriving in Cincinnati the luggage took at least 40 minutes to arrive at the pick up point. On my outward bound trip to Orlando the luggage took over an hour to arrive at the luggage carousel. It seems that Frontier does not have a good rapport with the baggage handlers at the airports."
Pros: "I liked the initial price of the flight. But it only goes downhill from there."
Cons: "You have to pay for your seat, anywhere from $6-36, no complimentary drinks or snacks on a 2.5 hour flight, very little legroom on a fairly large plane, a 9:15am flight took off at 10:30am... all in all a bad experience. The crew was friendly and boarding was easy, but a $35 checked bag, and a $35 carry on bag fee made this flight cost significantly more tha from competative airlines. Very disappointed and I don't think I'll be flying Frontier again."
Pros: "This was my first flight in nearly 25 years and it was my moms and son's first flight ever. Enjoyable experience and we definitely hope to do it again soon!"
Cons: "Better leg room would be my only suggestion."
Pros: "They nervously switched us to a new plane when they couldn't fix the first one."
Cons: "No food, not even a magazine to read on the 4 hour flight. Both of my flights were delayed without any prior warning, so I was sat in the airport for hours waiting for them to extent the delay (which they did several times on my way to my destination). Avoiding Fronier in the future."
Pros: "Crew was good, flight on time"
Cons: "Frontier and spirit use the same Airbus aiprlane with the worst seats in the industry. My back hurt before the airplane was pushed back from the gate."
Cons: "Seats did not recline and were very uncomfortable. Couldn't believe you had to buy your drinks. No snacks. By the time that I paid all the a'lacart it cost me more than a flight with Delta or Southwest. Will not be flying Frontier again."
Pros: "Good price."
Cons: "Baggage claim at CVG was soooooooooo slow. My bag took over an hour to finally arrive at the claim."
Pros: "I really liked the tickets prices and the boarding was fairly smooth."
Cons: "I understand there is a trade off for the lower price fair but $40 a one way for your bag is a bit much. The crew largely were not very engaged with the passanger. I all but had to rais my hand and shout out to the attendant to take my order - the passanger next to me had to say something to the attendant on my behalf. I get people at one point or another have an off day - but it was bad a Ly the same on the way on second leg f the trip"
Pros: "Boarding process was fast. Flight left on time. Crew were polite and helpful. Bathroom was clean and odorless."
Cons: "Seat didn't recline! So uncomfortable. Non-alcoholic drinks should be free. Crew should let passengers onow about "happy hour" drinks and deals available...I would have purchased one."
Pros: "The Regan airport is pretty nice."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed enough that we knew we would miss our connection. They were not very helpful and we had no good options available. We were basically stuck with only bad options. No one offered compensation or even to wave the surprise fees for seats and for baggage. This was after they lost our luggage on our way out to Washington!! With no compensation or apology. We will never fly Frontier again - it was a huge fiasco."
Pros: "Everything was efficient, smooth flight, and we landed--that's a good flight, right? We even landed 30 minutes ahead of schedule, which was great since I had to wait at the baggage carousel."
Cons: "It was my first time flying with Frontier and I didn't know about the bag charges and seat charges--that's on me though. Not sure I will fly with them again, as waiting for what COULD have been my carry-on at the carousel took so much time... then again, it makes it easier and quicker to board and de-board. But the seat charges were still ridiculous. Wish drinks and like, pretzels could be free just so we don't deplane with harsh breath."
Pros: "All was on time, crew was friendly, emergency on board was handled well."
Cons: "The seats are not movable, so you could not lean back a little. No screen for entertainment, tray table was less than half the normal size, uselss, snack choices, had little that one might consider healthy. A lot of junk food, and a huge offering of alcoholic beverages. Could we maybe have healthier food. It could still be pre-packaged somehow. Cost of carry on: $30. Checked suitcase: $25. That did not really make any sense, other than they make more money that way. Also irritating that if you want to have a specific seat, rather than waiting for what you might get at the airport, you have to call them, and pay $13 for a seat reservation. They are nickel and diming you, or rather in dollars. It is a rip off."
Pros: "Wish they had free snacks."
Pros: "Pilot got us here safely!"
Pros: "Getting off the plane at my destination"
Cons: "Plastic lawn furniture for seats. I'm 6'1" and my knees were literally wedged against the hard plastic back of the seat in front of me. Seat backs have no cushioning or lumbar. Seat backs are short so I couldn't rest my head. No recline, no cushion on the hard plastic armrests. Crew was mediocre at best. Nickel and diming is horrible on this airline and in the end you pay the same as most other airlines. I was absolutely miserable and will never fly Frontier again. If I could give comfort a negative rating I would. My back and neck still hurt two days later. This kind of seating cannot be encouraged by frontier or any other airline"
Pros: "Simple straightforward."
Cons: "Will remember next time carry on bags round trip add extra $100 to fare. Seems deceptive."
Pros: "Liked the meal and next flight coupons."
Cons: "The worst experience in all my years of flying. Carry-on fees, unexplained carrier imposed fees, seat fees, bad service, no complimentary beverage service. Spent nearly the same amount in fees as I did on the ticket. Will never fly this airlines again or recommend. It's clear why frontier was on the worst airlines list next to spirit."
Pros: "good legroom"
Cons: "uncomfortable seats, small trays"
Pros: "I liked that I landed safely. That's about it."
Cons: "Where to begin? First of all I have extreme flight anxiety. So from the get go I'm on edge about getting on a flight. When we arrived at the airport to check our bag, which I had ALREADY paid for online when I booked my flight, the attendant told me it would be $40 for my bag. Why in the world would I pay $40 more for s bag I've already paid for? I explained to her many times it had already been paid for. Unfortunately she wasn't cooperative and I wanted to actually make my flight so I just paid the $40. So, for my departing trip I spent $70 total to check a bag which is what I am most unhappy about. The flight itself wasn't exactly enjoyable. No free water.. No peanuts or anything.. The staff was subpar. They looked like they hated their jobs. Neither of the attendants on the plane ever had a smile on their face. There was a 3rd but I probably saw him once. Idk where he was the whole time. The seats were extremely uncomfortable and I felt crowded. I know planes aren't suppose to be exactly comfortable, but let me just say that the only other airline I have flown with before was spirit and I would rather fly with them again than frontier. I was expecting a much better experience since spirit is supposed to be the bottom of the totem pole but this wasn't the case. I'm not looking forward to my flight home."
Pros: "staff was nice"
Cons: "i think it is ridiculous to have to pay extra for carry on bags and a seat. the ticket was not any cheaper than other airlines."
Pros: "I cancelled my flight a day after I purchased my ticket. The wait on the phone was ridiculous, 45 min. Come on, the customer service could have been much better."
Pros: "Frontier's new seats are incredibly uncomfortable"
Cons: "I loved the price"
Cons: "Perhaps I should have - but I did not know that with Frontier airlines, you have to pay for every little thing. I booked Frontier because I wanted to take my daughters to see their Grandpa, perhaps for the last time and this was the best price I found. It wasn't a huge savings, but like many families every little bit helps. So you can imagine my surprise when we go to check in and I find I have to pay $45/ bag. And of course, this will happen both ways. So my savings just went far out the window."
Pros: "Guy playing music in terminal"
Cons: "The seating, they should probably tell you up front that when you pay the extra $50 for a seat with leg room that the ones in the exit isle do not recline. It is utter nonsense that those seats cost so much to be more uncomfortable than any other seat on the plane"
Pros: "Arrived on time."
Cons: "A $300 ticket became $500 ticket after fees for seat selection and baggage. My suggestion is fly United the cost will be the same when you factor in all Frontier's hidden fees. What's next Frontier? Extra fee for a pressurized cabin?"
Pros: "Inexpensive, quick"
Cons: "The seats were fixed, tiny and I was uncomfortable the whole time."
Pros: "Outstanding customer service by Susie (from Barbados) in DFW. They went out of their way to accommodate us. She even sung happy bday for mom's birthday. I have a special needs brother and they let him board early to give him extra time. Above and beyond, we absolutely love this airline. They are the megabus of the sky. Sign up for their frequent flyer program. Tickets are insanely cheap and economical, you can fly for $15 if you do it right by joining the yearly program ($50 annual) and responding to the emails. We booked 5 adults CVG to DFW 6 days out for $123 a piece when Delta and other competitors wanted $500 to $600 dollars. Pilots have a great sense of humor, flight attendants were super attentive and helpful. Be careful on the bag restrictions, my advice is travel light with carryon. The rest is pay for play but you can jet-set for stupid cheap and still receive superb service. I can't say enough great things about this airline. We are booking at least 7 to 8 more flights with them for the next few months for the price of 2 tickets with any other airline. Rivals Jet Blue or Southwest level of experience for fun but absolutely crushes all other airlines in value. Best flight experience ever!!!!!!"
Cons: "Almost nothing disliked about this airline. Read the bag criteria rules closely. They do distinguish between personal item and a minor bag fee for carryon. Don't really have any complaints at all as this has been my best travel experience with an airline ever. Without a doubt my new go to airline for travel in CONUS"
Pros: "I was shocked the frontier charged for a seat, and in a most tricky manner! Clearly the goal is to squeeze a few more dollars out of you, with the implied threat that you'll get the most uncomfortable seat possible if you don't fall for their extortion."
Cons: "The extra fees were tricky, the gate was uncomfortable, the plane was uncomfortable, the staff was surly, and the landing in Reagan was terrifying."
Cons: "The fee for a carry-on bag if you had a purse as well. The fee for a soda. I had to buy a seat? Never again the flight attendants were burnt out and ill tempered. No you won't be seeing me again."
