Pros: "All flight crews we're great."

Pros: "There was someone who worked at the ticket counter on gate B9 who was so sweet, friendly and competent. Not only was she pleasant and quick to everyone she encountered but she helped my daughter and I get seated together. Unfortunately I didn’t get her name...."
Cons: "Not much really. It was a great flight."

Pros: "Thomas was great! Upon arriving to the gate, I proceeded to ask if there were any upgraded seats available for purchase. He then gave me a list and asked me to choose where I’d like to sit. Seconds later he printed out a new boarding pass with my chosen seat without charge. Right up front in premium"
Cons: "Not a thing. And I’m not a huge fan of getting on planes to begin with"

Pros: "Free movies was great."
Cons: "Missing luggage. Please help"

Pros: "It got me to where I was going. Attendants were very good."
Cons: "Long flight delay. Seats were cramped."

Pros: "The crew was nice and they had a nice selection for movies"
Cons: "Was not informed that the gate was changed. Luckily I checked the departures screen at the time we were supposed to be boarding. I made an announcement to all passengers at the gate that Alaska changed the gate on all of us without informing anyone"

Cons: "Flight was canceled again with no notification and no compensation was offered."

Cons: "Long flight delay with very little information given as to why. The pilot only sporadically gave information about the delay and was not specific about the cause or how long the delay would be."

Cons: "My flight from Seattle to spokane was cancelled and then reinstalled but I had no boarding pass and had to get the ticket at the main desk before catching my connection. By the time I got through the line the flight was already gone"

Cons: "Once agin slow boarding"

Cons: "Port of Seattle security is so stupid -3 check points ...really and no directions to follow where to check baggage. Not Alaska fault but Seattle airport “sucks”"

Cons: "Great short flight."

Pros: "We got through the airport quick, they took my luggage when I had less than an hour to board, friendly crew."
Cons: "No complaints."

Pros: "Alaska airlines employees go out of there way to be friendly and engaging with customers."

Pros: "Row 30 in a 737-900 had more legroom than other airlines' :premium economy"! I love Alaska Airlines!"

Pros: "Alright, just a normal flight"

Pros: "Although we were a little behind schedule to leave Seattle, the flight crew thoroughly explained the delay to us and got us on the way as soon as they could."

Pros: "TWO beverage trips -- how could I not be happy?"

Pros: "This was first Alaska airlines trip and I want to do more! I showed up at the Seattle airport and tried to use one of the many conveniently placed kiosks. I couldn't find my trip, BECAUSE I HAD BOOKED FOR THE WRONG DAY!. This could have been very stressful but an attendant near the (short) line asked me if needed help and immediately redirected me to the VIP line. There, I found another very short line, and smiling, enthusiastic staff. The young woman who helped me got my info, and walked away to get the problem solved with a supervisor. She returned a short time later, my boarding pass in hand, upgraded me to Premium seating and TSA pre check -- without me even asking! On the plane, I mostly slept, but when I woke up I found the attendant had left me my boxes snack which was a mix of nuts and dried fruit in a fancy package. The seats seemed more comfortable than they were in recent trips on United and Southwest. There were plugs everywhere for phone and device charging. There was free wifi(!!). And there were devices available for borrowing. There was even a website for free movie streaming. In a time when most other airlines have sour faced (need to retire!) attendants (Southwest an exception), and EVERYTHING is a la Carte pricing, it is so nice to fly with a company that tries to make passengers happy and comfortable. What a switch!! You"
Cons: "The only negative was when the lights were abruptly turned on around 4:45 am."

Pros: "The Seattle airport and staff was great! There were employees at every station helping everyone with a smile! The difference from our flight home to Houston was remarkable. Thank you SeaTac."

Pros: "Flight crew was great."
Cons: "The flight was fine, however the customer service at the airport in Seattle was the worst experience I've ever had. I ended up missing my flight because of it. Everyone I dealt with, apart from the gentleman that changed my flight to the next one, was rude. I will likely try to avoid Alaska Airlines in the future for fear of having to deal with them in the airport."

Pros: "Crew was friendly during flight and regularly moved through the cabin."
Cons: "Impersonal during boarding. Check in counter to get boarding pass was unfriendly."

Pros: "The gate agents and staff were very friendly"
Cons: "When I checked my bag. They had to hand write a slip for the next leg of my flight (Calgary to London). This added about 10 minutes of time. It's 2017, how can it still require paper write up??"

Pros: "Crew was friendly and efficient. The flight got in slightly early. Baggage was swiftly delivered after our arrival."

Cons: "Drink service"

Pros: "The gate agents and flight crew were very accommodating."
Cons: "I was extremely annoyed that TSA Pre-Check was unavailable at Terminal 2 at 8:15am. This is unacceptable and not the TSA's fault. I fault the airline for this oversight.

Cons: "Food"

Pros: "The crew was polite and welcoming."

Pros: "Plane was clean & modern"
Cons: "More leg room"

Cons: "The Delta flight leaving Cleveland was a hour and a half late so we could not make our connection to get home and had to overnight in Minneapolis. This is the fourth time in six flights For Delta. I think the Kayak booking algorithm needs to allow more time between connecting flights."

Cons: "Person next to me overflowed into my seat…"

Pros: "The staff was very nice and helpful."
Cons: "My husband and I could not fit in the seats without our shoulders being on top of each other. My shoulder was in the aisle way. I am 5’8 and my knees were up againstthe seat in front of me. Our flight from CVG to DFW had none of these problems."

Pros: "Although the weather was sketchy and the flight was delayed about 2 hours, the actual flight was much smoother than forecasted."

Pros: "Departed on time. Very courteous crew."

Pros: "Excellent crew, snacks and coffee, comfortable economy seats. Plane landed 15 min early. Bags beat me to the carousel."

Pros: "Generally, Delta is cleaner, their terminals are much nicer, and the experience is better than one with American and United. I wish they had more direct flights to my normal destinations--I'd fly with them more!"
Cons: "Someone unloaded a lot of crumbs on my tray table and they all got smooshed on the back of the seat between the tray table and chair. It was pretty nasty. (The tray table was clean, the back of the seat wasn't. Please be nasty.)"

Cons: "Not enough room. Could have better technology and better food choices."

Cons: "Everything!"

Pros: "Always nice to be on an American plane out of an American airport.....SO much more professional. :))"

Pros: "Once we boarded the plane, we still had to wait for the pilots to arrive and then for them to run through their pre-flight checking before we could get underway."

Pros: "The initial boarding process was quick, smooth flight"
Cons: "I've never had a flight wait over 30 minutes past departure got other people to make a connection and get on to this flight. Seems beyond normal and wrong to those that were there in time and on the flight to support an on time departure"

Cons: "For the second consecutive Delta flight, one at LGA, one at JFK, (it’s never happened on any other airline) TSA pre-check was closed and over a dozen agents trying to upsell the CLEAR program were working hard to get people to spend $175 not to wait in the resulting one hour long line."

Cons: "my flight from JFK to Cancun had entertainment (TV, movie screen, headphones, etc). This one did not. Was kinda disappointed."

Pros: "Had tv & movies available but kept losing signal"

Pros: "Even though one couldn't hear an announcement Delta did have a staff person tell people where to line up for different zones. Flight was fine and on time."
Cons: "Couldn't clearly hear any announcements and once it was getting closer to boarding time as usual so many people just start gathering in a mass. (It would be so much easier to have signs label Zone 1 ,2, etc.)"

Pros: "My wife’s and my headphone connections would not work."

Cons: "Seats are too small in both width and knee room"

Pros: "The crew and service were outstanding, seat was comfortable."

Pros: "I was going for weekend trip and because of delays I would've been there less than 20 hours. But Delta was terrific in giving me a refund and essy to work with via Twitter. 2 hour phone delay but they called me back to complete refund."
Cons: "Chaos at gates. Changed gate 3 times. No real updates."

Pros: "Even with the weather being bad, the flight crew handled the situation really well. No one on the plane freaked out which was awesome, so I'm happy with the way they handled it."
Cons: "The weather was pretty nasty so we had to be re-routed to Cleveland to get more gas before landing in Columbus. It definitely wasn't the airline's fault, but it still was annoying. Thankfully I didn't miss anything!"

Cons: "Super delayed. Sat on runway for 2.5 hours"

Cons: "Delayed flight, mechanical"

Pros: "The leg room was great, the blanket and pillow provided was great and the crew did not disturb me."

Pros: "Excellent. Smooth staff. Lots of humor and smiles"
Cons: "No entertainment except paid WiFi."

Pros: "I had to hassle Delta going down because they did not precheck me. Blamed TSA. Called customer service when I checked in online and they got it done without a hassle."

Pros: "It was only 1.5 hr flight."
Cons: "Apparently Delta has decided even if you have a qualified KTN, they can arbitrary decide not to honor do you cannot precheck thru TSA. No way to input KTN at purchase on website and couldn't get it done at ticket counter. Thanks Delta"

Cons: "See above."

Pros: "I was very grateful to have made this flight on standby."
Cons: "Someone has to sit in the seat next to the restroom. Had I a choice in the matter, I would have preferred to sit elsewhere. But as I said, I was grateful to have made the flight, and arrive at my destination a mere 3 hours late."

Pros: "Got on earlier flight as standby."

Pros: "Cookies"
Cons: "Late"

Pros: "This doesn't really have to do with Delta Airlines however it does affect my experience. I had a very rude TSA agent speak to me na very degrading tone prior to boarding the plane. This experience affected my travel experience with Delta. I realize this person is not a Delta employee however the rudeness that I experienced affected my travel experience."

Pros: "It got me home."
Cons: "Although I paid for a first class ticket I was seated in coach. The plane was a commuter jet, and I suspect that Delta added one or more rows of seats because even though I'm of average height and less than average weight I had no leg room at all, and the hip room was minimal at best."

Cons: "If they can’t serve beverages. Can we be allowed o e water bottle through security?"

Cons: "The crew was rude, we left over an hour late due to human error, there was no food for sale and the internet was down"

Pros: "Flight was mostly empty and it’s a short trip."

Cons: "Super hot inside the cabin and little we could do to lower the temp"

Cons: "The aadvantage app kept crashing so we couldnt watch movies during our overall 8+ hrs travel, on both legs"

Pros: "The 2 flight attendants who continued to work this flight were amazing. The gate agent in Phoenix was also great."
Cons: "7 hour delay initially because of a mechanical problem, but massively exacerbated by an inability to find crew. Disappointing...."

Pros: "flight took off exactly on time & arrived on time"

Pros: "Arrived on time"

Cons: "Plane was too warm during flight. Aisle is narrow, seats are semi-hard. Lav needed attention (ran out of towels)."

Pros: "Very nice new plane."

Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Getting through security at O'Hare was horrible. My plane seat was too upright and felt like it was not bolted to the floor properly."

Pros: "Quick flight, great crew, orderly boarding. Updates to gate were clearly communicated"
Cons: "Very annoyed at "Basic Economy" being a thing. Annoying way to get more $ for the same seat. Avoiding any airline with this status."

Cons: "British Airways/American Airlines lost/delayed luggage again! Then send an email in the middle of night with a link to schedule home delivery of the luggage that was valid for 4 hours only. It is clearly an attempt to cheat out of their responsibility of home delivery of the luggage that was delayed the second time. Poor, poor service by American Airlines."

Cons: "The crew was very disappointing!!!!!!"

Cons: "No overhead space"

Pros: "Flight attendant was beyond excellent, Yaniel, who smiled and greeted me helping me to my singular seat on the right side of the plane. He was very professional and kind, with a very well appearance and a fantastic attitude. He was quick with delivering my snack and coffee. Very pleased!!!! First flight attendant to ever make the trip as exceptional as possible. Thank you Yaniel very much."
Cons: "Unbelievable wait times at LGA. Late arrival of plane, extremely late departure at over an hour passed original departure time. Waste of money choosing that ticket and time frame when it was clearly not a concern of American Airlines that I was missing my rides, late getting to CMH etc."

Cons: "Waited an extra 30 minutes for luggage to be loaded. Every American ( British airways partner) flight we took was delayed."

Cons: "I guess I was lucky to get a seat at all, since this last leg of my itinerary was deleted from my ticket when I got to the airport. So my bag couldn't be checked through, and they wanted to charge me for it even though it was a connection to the international flight I had just taken. A truly dreadful experience."

Pros: "DCA based AA gate agents were awesome. We were booked on a flight that was delayed, turned out there was a flight about to depart (it had been delayed 2.5hrs due to weather), but was departing prior to our reg scheduled flight so they put us on standby. No doubt the crew was also columbus based and eager to get home...as they did. Couldn’t be more pleased to get home"

Cons: "Seats are cramped"

Pros: "40 minute flight, on time, no complaints."

Pros: "see above"
Cons: "see above"

Pros: "Nice people"

Pros: "Smooth takeoff and landing. The seats were comfortable for a 3 hour flight."
Cons: "Stuffy on the plane. This might not be the airline’s problem but it was hot and the air vent didn’t cool me down."

Pros: "On this flight back to Arizona they arrayed mutt husband and I together, unlike on our way to Spokane. That was much better. We had more leg room this time."
Cons: "The seats are hard, fine for young people, but difficult for older people with arthritis and Auto immune diseases, such as fibromyalgia."

Pros: "Courteous professional staff!"
Cons: "I couldn't imagine a smaller space for traveling - rediculously small!"

Pros: "As usual, the Cathay Pacific staff were awesome and very professional. Never hesitated to serve the passengers with infants/kids and elderly people. My overall experience was great!! Thank you to all staff!!"

Cons: "there was screens but no movies or anything"

Pros: "Very hard landing."
Cons: "Your pretzels are terrible"

Cons: "Have to pay for wifi use. Entertainment used to be included in flights and was apart of your airfare."

Pros: "The plane was very comfortable. The steward as very helpful - just a cup of coffee when I entered the plane - but after nearly missing connections, it was very welcome."
Cons: "The flight was perfect."

Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "No individual entertainment units. Forced to watch airline selected movies. No free cocktails. I booked BA for numerous reasons and should have been switche'd."

Pros: "Bridget was managing the cancellation lines with finesse, compassion, and urgency. She was a star! The rebooked flight was fast, comfortable, and landed early."
Cons: "Previous flight was canceled and forced us to stay in DC an extra day. Watched flights continue to arrive and depart from our hotel room. Rebooked using the mobile app but could not check in on mobile or at the kiosk. Waited in line for almost 2 hours for AA to simply check us in and print passes. The flight did not get catering refreshed after landing in DC so no refreshments or snacks were offered during the flight home."

Cons: "I'm pregnant, and didn't have time before my connecting flight to get food at the airport. I was sitting near the back of the plane, and was ready to purchase food. By the time the cart reached my row, all the food options were literally sold out. I ate the free cookie and had some apple juice, but wanted something with some protein. I guess I'll remember to pack more snacks next time."

Pros: "Awesome crew. On time."

Pros: "worst experience. Airplane people not so good"

Pros: "Crew was nice"

Cons: "The seats were so old, I didn't have a screen to watch movies on and it was really really cold"

Pros: "It was a fairly routine flight. Could use a more substantial snack for a four hour flight."
Cons: "While waiting for our baggage in Phoenix, we noticed a few random bags with tears, rips and clothes hanging out. Then we saw our suitcase. The zipper was torn away from the lining so that it no longer closes all the way. There items hanging out of the gap. What was happening in the basement that caused at least 4 damaged bags?"

Pros: "the plane, a 380, had comfortable seats, fewer occupants, more and easier access to bathrooms, did not like the larger plane I flew on going to Australia, it held 700 persons could physically reach the lights and when on, they didn't disturb anyone vegetarian food was delicious and nutritionally sound and varied love the soft blankets"
Cons: "not a very good choice of current movies"

Cons: "Old Equipment"

Cons: "Unprofessional, rude, unorganized, & just ridiculous!!!!"

Pros: "Cheap. Easy. Got me to my destination"

Cons: "The only downfall of the flight was the seating. Having to pay extra for an emergency exit row to get more leg room isn't good practice."

Pros: "Crew was nice and understanding how uncomfortable the flight was."
Cons: "The seats are now smaller than ever. AA made them more marrow, closer together and less reclining. With 1.2 mil miles I am switching to drlta."

Pros: "This was my first experience flying United. The staff and pilot were friendly even though everyone seemed grumpy and tired. There was a poor baby that cried almost the whole flight-I get it, I was tired and wanted to cry too...ha! They handled everyone with patience and a smile."
Cons: "When we landed in Columbus we were stuck on the plane for almost a half hour because there were issues with the walking bridge. This was annoying."

Cons: "The onboard wifi was not working."

Pros: "On my flight home from Columbus, there was one guy running the whole ship! He. Was. Everything!!! So Attentive but not overly so. And he read my mind and gave me what I needed before I even realized I did. Thank you to him for one of my best flights!"
Cons: "There really wasn't an entertainment option. A lot of airlines these days have much better service that's simple yet good. Also, just a small pack of pretzels? Fail. You have to keep up with the Deltas and Jetblues of the world!"

Pros: "Comfort"

Pros: "Landing"
Cons: "No Information about when we would leave jersey"

Pros: "Wheelchair was provided"
Cons: "Long wait for wheelchair"

Pros: "The flight attendant in coach was very nice."
Cons: "Seat assignment was last seat on the plane, next to the bathroom... and the luggage return was slow."

Pros: "Crew staff was excellent"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for 4 hours due to a delayed aircraft; followed by a broken seat. Seat seemed to have tape wrapped around the seat back tray."

Pros: "Arrived early"
Cons: "Was way too hot on the plane."

Pros: "Absolutely nothing!!!"
Cons: "I never got to make the flight. I was unable to take the flight because it was cancelled by United without my consent. I still needed the flight too. I'll never use priceline or United airlines for travel EVER again, and I'll be sure to spread the word. No matter who I talked to, I was blamed for the problem. I've never had a bigger waste of money. $550+"

Pros: "Liked the staff, always friendly even with several delays. The assist staff were excellent"
Cons: "Did not like the delays and gate changes - but that wasn't the airlines' fault"

Pros: "Felt like a bothersome passenger even though I did not ask for anything. The snack was tossed at me in an empty seat instead of handed to me."

Pros: "Dirty, tired airplane. This (and every other flight going out around our gate) was "oversold"- egging travelers to give up their seats"

Pros: "the plane was on time, smooth take off and landing, crew was efficient and friendly. it was great !"

Cons: "Group 5 was a very delayed boarding beyond what it should have been with no explanation. Felt like second class citizen"

Pros: "Seats were comfortable and had plenty of leg room"

Pros: "The crew were very understanding that we all just wanted to be home (the flight was delayed for three hours, so we didn't get home until 2am). They were efficient and got us home safely and quickly."
Cons: "I was not impressed with United and how they handled the delay. The staff did not care that we were waiting for 5 hours for a plane they couldn't even guarantee was coming. No workers were at the gate for a long time to even help out customers."

Pros: "Fast flight"
Cons: "feeling cramped"

Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Plane was delayed 1 hrs because short of crew member"

Pros: "The seats were comfortable."
Cons: "The flight was 2.5 hours late and during this time the crew instructed us to leave our seatbelts on and remain seated. The crew "didn't know" when were going to leave. No snacks were passed out during this flight or during the time we had to wait. The crew was hiding in the back of the plane giggling and gossiping about people which I found to be very rude. I could hear their whole conversation making my trip a terrible experience."

Pros: "I love that you can fly direct to Pasco now. For years, one had to fly to Seattle and catch a puddle jumper. You're only in the air for about an hour and a half and Pasco has been slowly upgrading their airport. I love how easy it is to visit my family in the Tri-city area now."

Pros: "Crew was very nice and was very responsive with passengers."
Cons: "Flight was delayed so we ended up arriving about 40 minutes late. Not enough leg room which ends up making lots of people grumpy."

Pros: "Time of flight"
Cons: "Crew. The flight attendant in the forward cabin was rude and yelled at the passengers."

Pros: "The flight attendant was cheerful."
Cons: "Logistics. Please figure out how to board a plane on time and have a gate available upon arrival. Neither of these happened for this flight."

Cons: "The aircraft smelled like the restroom due to the fact the aircraft came out of the hangar and the bathroom didn't get cleaned. This flight was delayed as well."

Pros: "Slow return of carry on at end of flight....crowded jetlway with so many waiting."

Pros: "Plane was very comfortable. Attendants were friendly and it was very smooth and quick!"

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Maybe pick a packet food that is more favoured by more people. The wasabi peas weren't a good choice for our family"

Cons: "Good trip overall."

Pros: "Even though it was a bumpy flight do to strong winds, the pilot did his best to find smooth air"
Cons: "The baggage claim took forever. Our flight actually disappeared from the tv screen and our luggage was not out. Finally after waiting about 20 minutes it popped back up on the screen and them arrived. This is the second time this has happened to me in Columbus and I don't fly there too often"

Pros: "The lady flight attendant as the best I have ever had. I think her name was Jan."

Pros: "Flight was delayed because they couldn't get their passenger count straight! 30 min delay just to leave the gate!"
Cons: "When we arrived 20 mins late and then no one was at the terminal gate to put sky walk in place! After 20 min wait we had to walk down the aircraft stairs outside and go thru a door and climb two flights of stairs just to get into the airport"

Pros: "Everything was smooth and senseless. And I liked kayak updated me which baggage terminal my bags were. Saved a lot of time walking around the Dulles terminal."

Pros: "I liked that I could do self check in and get my boarding pass without joining a long line. Had a great flight and no complaints."

Pros: "We got to Columbus early"

Pros: "The plane had tvs on the back of each seat"

Cons: "They didn't have wifi"

Cons: "The seat was too small, the seat belt was too small, I was jammed up against the plane wall and by the end of the flight my neck was killing me."

Pros: "on-time! Even a little early!"

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Screaming 2 year old child!!!!! The child was old enough to know better & the mother did nothing. This child was soo fussy & whining about the littlest things. Mother couldn't even get into the overhead compartment to get a coat without this little child screaming for his mama. She did nothing to calm him down & his screaming pearcing harmonic voice was almost umbarriable for people to stand."

Pros: "The trip itself was great. Even though I arrived at the airport 90 minutes before takeoff and was pre tickited and checked my bag curbside I almost missed my flight because of the long single line at security check and then my bag never got on the p!ane."
Cons: "The fact that I had to wait to get my bag until it came in on a later flight. I didn't receive my bag until 12:00 am"

Pros: "Arrived 20 minutes early!"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "See below"
Cons: "Even with an over 3 hour layover in Texas we missed out connection and had to stay over night in Texas. Adding $400 to our trip with dinner and room. Only 4 desks of 60 open at passport control and only 3 desks open at customs. All to process 7000ish people. Our tax $ at work."

Cons: "Old seats are bad for my back and neck."

Cons: "Gate checked bags took 15 minutes to get back"

Pros: "I'm glad the boarding process is typically quick to stay on schedule."
Cons: "There should be a message when booking through travel sites about having to pay additionally for your seat and even carry-on baggage at the time of check-in. This never used to be policy for Frontier and I was shocked to pay $68 from Columbus to Denver and then $58 on the way back just for my carry-on and seat. I also had two unattended toddlers behind me on the way home which were disturbing the entire flight. Their mother chose to sit across the aisle for some reason and they were literally screaming the entire way. Perhaps an adult or parental guardian should be required to sit with children under the age of 6? Come on."

Pros: "Good flight, love frontier"

Pros: "What I like best is the update I get on my phone, thus during delays and how long the flight takes. I actually bought this ticket for a friend and it made trip of going to pick him up from the airport very easy."

Cons: "Our flight out of Denver got CANCELED along with a whole bunch of others. Seems there were having crew issues, not the BS reasons corporate was saying. Lots of stranded people in Denver. We stood in line for 3 hours to get a refund. (we decided to go with another airline, some people had been stranded for a week!) One sad items was a soldier had been on deployment for TWO years and was trying to get home. He had been stranded since Friday (it was now Monday). The agent just shrugged and said get in line. Frontier should have booked him on another airline! Finally, a lady in line heard of his plight and bought him a ticket right there on the spot! (on another airline of course). SHAME ON FRONTIER. We will NOT fly them again! #NEVERFLYFRONTIER"

Pros: "They delayed then cancelled flight. Refunded 1/4 of paid round trip price. Cost 3 people extra 3k for hotels and flights to get home! "Our policy is what it is" I was told. Never Again."

Pros: "The crew provided great service. Very friendly."
Cons: "Not very comfortable. Doesn't not have small things like a port to charge phones. Things that are needed for long flights and are provided by other airlines. Seems outdated."

Pros: "One lady had a medical problem after we had boarded and had to find her luggage to be taken off, the whole ordeal only lasted about 15 minutes"

Pros: "The prices were reasonable."
Cons: "Check in personnel didn't arrive until and hour before the flight was scheduled to take off which left myself and every other passenger waiting in line for over an hour. The new seats look very nice, but are just hard plastic covered in faux leather leaving passengers with an uncomfortable experience. They did not recline, which wouldn't have been a problem if the tray tables weren't the size of an iPad mini. The seats were so close together you couldn't even rest forward onto the tiny tray tables without hitting your head on the persons seat in front of you. I am by no means a large person at only 5' 3" so I can only imagine how awful it was for tall people! For a three hour plane ride it would be better to go with any other company."

Pros: "Checking my bag was quick and easy but it would have been better had cash been accepted."
Cons: "Charging for a coke? Seriously?!?! The stewardesses were not very personable and ate and chatted amongst themselves for most of the flight."

Cons: "Seats too close together, stuffy, cramped, no space."

Pros: "Not much to like."
Cons: "Just ridiculous, as follows: 1-Deceptive web page at check in makes you think paying extra for seats is required 2-Seats don't recline unless you PAY EXTRA 3-Carry on bag? PAY EXTRA 4-Care for a Soda? PAY EXTRA 5-Tray table - the size of a business envelope? Really? 6-In-flight magazine? HA! Read the safety info or the back of the barf bag, that's all Frontier provides. 7-Paid $50 each to upgrade seats to front (1st class?) No refreshments, no amenities, just a bigger tray table and a reclining seat. For $50. Sat on tarmac for 1.5 hours in 90 degree heat. I know this because I could hear the pilot yelling over the radio that it was 90 degrees in the plane. No A/C while on tarmac because APU was down, according to pilot announcement. Everyone I talked to felt deceived by the online check in and the extra charge for seats (if you want to sit with your party, otherwise no guarantees). Bad representation, deceptive web check in, uncomfortable plane, zero amenities unless you PAY EXTRA. Sorry Frontier, but FAIL!!!!"

Pros: "What is to like?"
Cons: "everything!"

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "everything"

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "They honey dick you with the cheap plane tickets then screw you over at the the counter when they charge an unnecessary amount for carry on baggage. I WILL NEVER FLY FRONTIER AGAIN. Not to mention the meal trays can barely hold a lunch-able... Go home frontier airlines.. your drunk."

Pros: "Seats were wider than most airlines and there seemed to be a couple of inches more legroom, but the seats were thin and not very comfortable."
Cons: "Unexpected fee for carry-on baggage. Who ever heard of being charged for a CARRYON? The airline provides no service with carry-on luggage- all the work is done by the customer."

Cons: "Flight was 7 hours late because of staffing error and you have to buy all refreshments and basic courtesies."

Cons: "When I got to the gate, I was told that I had to pay $45 for my carry on luggage, which I found it to be somewhat insulting (if I had agreed to check-in the luggage it would have been 'cheaper' only $40). This was the first time I had ever been asked to pay for my carry-on luggage, and the basis for me to never fly Frontier ever again. They claim that it was because of the ticket I purchased through a third party, and I told them that they should not advertise any tickets where you intend to charge people for their carry-on luggage. To make things worse, it appears that Frontier does not participate with the TSA pre-check program, and even though I had my global entry card with me, the officer at TSA pre-check would not allow me through this line because of the airline I was flying with - Never again!!! I suspect that on my way back I'll be forced to pay another $45 for my carry-on luggage, which I despise."

Pros: "The staff was amazingly helpful, empathetic, and kind. I genuinely enjoyed the experience because the gate attendants, crew, and pilot were fantastic."
Cons: "I did not like that I did not read the fine print and ended up having to pay at the gate for a carry on. I'd never flown Frontier before . . . but I'll know for next time: one personal item only. :)"

Cons: "Frontier nickel and dimes you for everything: on top of the ticket price, you must pay for your seats, carry-on, you name it! The seats are horribly uncomfortable--no reclining!"

Cons: "Paying up to $60 for a carry on. Waiting on the runway for 30 minutes with no communication from the pilot when we landed in Denver."

Pros: "The plane didn't crash."
Cons: "Many years ago, I was an Early Rewards member who flew Frontier any time I could. No longer. The ticket price no longer resembles what you will pay. Now they charge $15-35 to get a seat,another $30-$35 to check or carry on each piece, and sit in uncomfortable seats that do not recline. These extra charges cause long delay at the check in counter even if I already checked in and only needed to check a bag because everyone else had to pay. Now I'll only fly Frontier if there is no alternative."

Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats, they did not recline. Crew kept talking loudly at the back and it was hard to sleep ."

Cons: "Fee's for luggage and carry ons. In other airline its already included Fee's for luggage and carry ons. In other airline its already included Delayed flight"

Cons: "What? Wouldnt you think your ticket would actually mean you'd purchased a seat on your flight? Not with Frontier. Extra cost for your seat - ANY seat. And for your carry-on bag. Seats are nearly unbrearably thin and stiff. No recline. No headrest. Miniature tray. Knees push against the seat in front. And not an inexpensive ticket to begin. Last Frontier flight for me."

Pros: "All was good!"

Pros: "The flight was fast and the landing was smooth. The Pilots did a great job !"
Cons: "We hit some turbulence getting into Denver but that Is common ."

Pros: "Seattle to Denver took off on time, the flight went without incident."
Cons: "Crowded, as usual."

Pros: "Original fair"
Cons: "All the add on fees. Not even one seat that did not have a extra fee on it. What good is a ticket if it does not have a seat."

Cons: "Arrived late. Baggage was overcharged. They charged me for carry on bag besides baggage claimed. Upon late arrival waited an hour till I got my baggage Arrived late. Baggage was overcharged. They charged me for carry on bag besides baggage claimed. Upon late arrival waited an hour till I got my baggage Arrived late. Baggage was overcharged. They charged me for carry on bag besides baggage claimed. Upon late arrival waited an hour till I got my baggage Arrived late. Baggage was overcharged. They charged me for carry on bag besides baggage claimed. Upon late arrival waited an hour till I got my baggage"

Cons: "Charging for water? Really?? Charge me a carry on fee, a checked luggage fee and forcing me to pay a carry on fee for my PERSONAL ITEM that fits under the seat??? You've got to be kidding me."

Pros: "I did appreciate the low fare."
Cons: "Its weird to keep seeing all the things you have to pay extra for that other airlines just provide."

Cons: "Bad service, expensive everything"

Pros: "$60 for a standard carry on roller bag at gate (didn't know they're ridiculous rules), extremely rude gate staff, uncomfortable seats that don't recline, they charge for a soda and can only give you 2 cups of water before they charge you for a bottle. No vomit bags and everyone was nauseas during landing!!! All in all, two big anxiety attacks later, I arrived at my destination. Worth the extra $75 to be at peace and happy and actually be taken care of!!"

Pros: "flight was pretty much on time, attendants were steady and pleasant."
Cons: "Seats weren't very comfortable and cramped, baggage charges were excessive, low class travel."

Pros: "The overall experience was ok, I was on time so I can't complain."
Cons: "Every time they have a massive line waiting to check in, they seem to only have one attendant available, causing massive delays checking in. We stood in a line for over an hr."

Pros: "Timely and efficient"
Cons: "Charged for everything"

Cons: "Everything is tribble I will never fly with frontier airline again"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "My military plane showed up a little late so when I showed up to check in their was no one in sight due to there stupid 45 minute policy. So I had to buy a whole new ticket with another airline worth ALOT more then what the Frontier one was"

Pros: "Like everyone else, I was pissed I had to pay for my carry-on. Getting to and onto my flight was average.. the stewardess kept going on and on about how the star wars plane would be visible at take off.. but it came accross like that of a hung over your guide. That part was funny and weird. They charge for everything on the flight, then pitch free miles on their credit card program for 10-20 minutes while landing. It was funky.. I won't fly with them again unless it's too cheap to be true!"

Pros: "From the moment I stepped to the tic counter in SEA, the agent spoke with me, not at me...so kind, so sharp and professional...She ( I wish I cold remember her name) set my expectations for my flights...What is incredibly amazing is that everything she drew for me to keep in mind, was exactly how it turned out to be. I think Frontier ought to clone this hard to find ( in this world of indifference) professional person...Although I took advantage of a great price for my travel, I felt I was trade as if I was traveling 1st Class."
Cons: "The walks at Denver's airport. And having to pay for general beverages, including water...not good."

Cons: "Aside from charging you for everything (seat and carry on included), they were late leaving Seattle which caused me to miss my connection in Denver and they were not willing to help me out. I had to buy another ticket with another airline just to get home. Im now in the process of trying to get a refund. Flight crew didn't seem to care much about the passengers and the team in Denver basically said there was nothing they could do about us missing the connection."

Cons: "They charged me $45 for a carry on! The only reason I picked this flight was the lower fare...had I known I had to pay $45 for a carry on and pay for water I would not have chosen this airline. In addition my seat could not even recline and I serving tray was only a few inches wide. I was very disappointed with all of the hidden fees in this airline. I will not be flying frontier again."

Pros: "Survived"
Cons: "Rude staff from checkin to bag claim; bags changed location without telling a soul- waited extra 30 min at midnight: ridiculous. Charged for coffee on the flight. Would have been charged more for carryons than for the flight if traveling normally. Uncomfortable experience all around."

Pros: "The flight was straight forward."
Cons: "Price gouging on checking bags 40.00 a piece, give me a break!!."

Cons: "The seating was very horrible and tight and uncomfortable.Also the seats do not recline"

Pros: "Nothing I liked."
Cons: "All the charges that don't come until you check in....$ for a seat, $ for a carry on...changing gates and no announcement."

Pros: "Boarded on time. Friendly crew."
Cons: "No leg room. Should serve free beverages."

Cons: "Didn't realize I had to pay for a carry on bag - AND it was more than the cost of checking the bag. Also, Frontier has turned into a budget airline. Small, uncomfortable seats. Tiny tray table. Only water. Great deals but I might pay for comfort."

Pros: "Actual flights were uneventful and pleasant."
Cons: "Flight from Seattle was delayed causing me to spend many hours in the airport. With more proactive communication from Fronteir I could have pursued other options rather than sitting in SEA all day. Secondly, when I had to stay overnight in Denver I was given almost no information about the shuttle or where my hotel was; the paper I was given only gave the chain name and there are two hotels with that chain name near the airport. Just my luck, I was carried to the wrong hotel even though I asked the shuttle driver and showed him the voucher from Frontier. This could be prevented by having complete written information available for a predictable situation like this."

Pros: "My first flight had in flight tv which was nice, and there was a bit more comfort."
Cons: "The flight was delayed due to weather in Denver, but luckily I made it just in time for my connections, but I can't say the same for some of my peers."
