The was not a vegan option for dinner. I thought the pilot announced complimentary beverages; soft drinks, coffee, tea & alcohol. Perhaps I was mistaken or maybe he was.

Cons: "After sitting on the tarmac for over an hour we were told by the pilot that we had to go back to the gate to get more fuel! All this because the plane's computer did not agree with the central computer. So: 1) Why didn't the pilot check and fix this discrepancy at the gate? 2) Why did it take more than hour for them to decide what to do? 3) Why did the pilot and cabin crew take over an hour to inform us what was going on?

Cons: "On April 15 we flew from Sacramento to Basel, via Los Angeles and Munich. We did exactly what we were told re reserving seats. We were told to call 23 hrs. in advance to reserve seats. When we tried to follow directions, we were not able to check in. Without checking in, we could not reserve seats. After numerous phone calls, to various numbers, we were not able to check in or reserve seats. By continuing to ask questions, to try and understand, we were told we were "under airport control". This was an "at random" situation and online check in was not available. Only 5 minutes earlier, we were still being instructed to check in online! We had never heard of this. I contacted a neighbor, who flies often internationally and within the U.S. He said it had happened to him once. He agreed that driving to the airport in Sacramento was a wise decision. This is not what we wanted to be doing 1 day before departure. At Sacramento we found a kind gentleman who saw our dilemma and checked us in as a favor. We saw assigned seats. He suggested we request to improve our seats the following travel day. It was a very challenging morning. As I tried to improve our seating the following day I was told, by airport staff, that this happened because we booked through Kayak? Rather with an attitude that we should have booked differently. This was a vacation we had looked forward to for years. I worked hard at not letting this difficult start damage my trip. Upon arrival in Amsterdam, I tried to learn more, to prevent a similar situation on the way home."

Cons: "Delayed for 3 hours and struggle to find bus to my final destination"
Pros: "Wasting my time driving a hour to the airport for the frontier manager to refuse to print our boarding tickets. And driving a hour back home. Missing my flight to pheonix. Oh I loved being met at the desk by the rude manager who refused to help us."
Cons: "How rude this manager was and how horrible the service was. We showed up to the counter at 8:01. Flights at 8:45. We could have went through security 10 times and still made our flight. Horrible service. No information. Just rude comments and refusing to help. Will never attempt to fly with them again."
Cons: "The seats are uncomfortable, don’t recline, had to pay for carry on bag $50 X2 not prepared for that!!! Will never fly with frontier again!"
Cons: "Being delayed after we boarded flight to wait for less than 10 passengers.... Why would an airline disrespect every other passengers time for so few people is beyond me!!! Will not fly with Frontier again unless I have to in an emergency. My overhead bag was so far away from my seat I couldn't even get to it to get off the plane. Horrible service, no ammeneties or even an I'm sorry. Old plane and snacks that people bought stunk. Passengers should be limited on alcohol because the drunk in front of me was miserable to listen to for 3 hours on a 2 hour flight."
Pros: "Staff was courteous and accomadating"
Cons: "My boarding pass showed incorrect gate number. Almost missed my flight"
Pros: "The crew was super nice, that’s about it."
Cons: "Boarding process, accommodations, uncomfortable seats and very little space. I had a family emergency and this was the only flight I could catch. Will avoid this airliner in the future."
Pros: "The direct flight ."
Cons: "Waiting in the same line for bag drop off with people that did not use the Kiosk. The restrictions on times to check in and when the last bags could be dropped off. I prefer to arrive early and go through the process before most people arrive. There should be a bag drop off line separate from the general line. The trays on the plane were too small for me to work. The space between the rows was too restricted to open my lap top."
Pros: "Great fight attendants"
Cons: "They kept pitching their credit card. They charge extra for every little thing (carry ons, drinks), why would I want their card?"
Pros: "When all the add ons are factored it is no cheaper than delta."
Pros: "Flight arrived a little early as usual with flights from Dulles near DC to Orlando airport"
Cons: "Seats were a little cramped but hey its a cheaper flight."
Cons: "My flight was delayed 4 HOURS! I didn't land until 1am."
Cons: "I'm hit heavy traffic and missed the flight and the gate agents weren't helpful and didn't seem to care. Other airlines were much more accommodating and helped me get home to my wedding. I won't buy another Frontier plane ticket."
Pros: "The affordability of the ticket"
Cons: "Checked baggage prices and how they are different online and at the check-in gate. They should be the same everywhere. The staff at the airport was rude."
Pros: "Staff was fine."
Cons: "delays, delays, delays. My flight were delayed with unknown times, including flights before me. Seems to be a very consistent problem. Waiting to dock the plane into the terminal was an extra 20 minutes. schedule efficiency is poor."
Cons: "The lines were huge, staff wasn't willing to help, we had to separate traveling with my husband, he paid for our bags and didn't get checked in, he took a different airline to get home, but frontier didn't refund the $80 he spent and didn't get checked in, so unacceptable. The people with earlier flights should be taken cared of, instead of keeping everyone waiting inside and outside. We're beyond disappointed"
Cons: "At the time I received this survey, (3 hours after my flight was scheduled to leave) my flight had not even arrived to O'Hare and I had no information about when it would arrive or what caused the delay"
Pros: "The Fare"
Cons: "Waiting 1 hour for a gate to open in Chicago"
Cons: "I am still in Orlando."
Cons: "Significant delays and poor communication with customers about those delays."
Pros: "The flight was ok. The money you think you save on the scheap flight you lose in additional expenses such as carry on, seat selection, and so forth. I probably wouldn't fly them again"
Cons: "Additional incurred expenses. Seats were not comfortable."
Pros: "The crew was exceptional, and the pre-flight instruction "talk" was very humorous, which kept the attention of the passengers. Seats were comfortable enough for our 2 hour flight. Boarding was very quick, and the plane was a nice, new airbus. The flight home was only half full, so we had more room to stretch. Plane was very clean. We got by with one checked suitcase to save on the carry on fee, which I'm hoping they do away with as they grow in competitiveness."
Cons: "We went online to check our bag, just one, and the site "The Perks" automatically added a carry on for both of us on both the return and departure flights. We could not edit online at all, and had no luck reaching them by phone. Sent an immediate e-mail stating we were being charged for something we did not have, and received a reply confirming we picked a "bundle" which we did not! When we arrived back home, I was able to talk directly to a supervisor, and got MOST of the bogus charges dropped. Be wary ! You SAVE by doing it online, but next time I will check baggage by talking to a LIVE person by phone."
Cons: "Seats too close together, stuffy, cramped, no space."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable"
Pros: "Made us wait 40mins on the plane for another plane and didn't have the AC on."
Pros: "New plane. Seats did not tilt back. Boarding was easy. Courteous staff."
Pros: "Pretty much nothing."
Cons: "Landed but no one was available to park the plan so connecting flight passengers could catch their next flights. Almost like no one new the plane had arrived."
Pros: "Flight staff were wonderful about making up time and doing what they could to make things better"
Cons: "Flight was delayed an hour due to traffic control and the airline wouldn't give us an estimation of when we would leave - I understand that it was up to traffic control but having flown I knew it would easily be an extra hour since the last flight hadn't made it to the gate. Once we arrived we learned only four bags made it for the entire flight. Overall it was a cheap flight but you had to pay handsomely for bags and food/beverages"
Pros: "The extra charges, delays, the fees for ANY refreshment, the luggage delay/drop on the WRONG carousel. Terrible. Everyone on our flight shared the same remorse for booking Frontier after years of not. DONT DO IT!!!!!"
Cons: "Ride was rough and my daughter go sick. My wife had to clean up the area and I had to take garbage and put it in the garbage can. Staff did not want to touch anything."
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "No free sodas nor peanuts."
Pros: "The low price of the fare"
Cons: "1. All the added charges even for a refreshment 2. The obnoxiously loud noises coming from the plane mechanics 3. A group of 5 that were drunk, belligerent, loud, and inappropriate 4. Lack of cleanliness (old tissues & trash stuffed in the seat pocket, trash on the floor, looked like throw up in our aisle-our entire aisle asked to move seats) 5. Stewardess speakerphone so loud It was painful"
Cons: "There was food and crumbs all over the floor. Food mashed into the carpet. The seats don't recline from what I could tell. VERY uncomfortable."
Cons: "Seats are really really uncomfortable"
Pros: "The flight was better than the flight going to Atlanta because the plain was newer and had better seats. The flight crew was great going and coming back."
Pros: "It was on time."
Cons: "The seats are too small, and not padded much, so it is like sitting on a folding chair. THE SEATS DONT RECLINE. There was a 4" tray table because there isn't room for the normal 8"? (Guess) tray table to go. You can't put a laptop or anything on the tray table. I am a petite girl and i could not bend over in my seat to try snd get your personsl item... My head would hit the seat in front of me...very uncomfotable flight. Everything was an extra: we paid $35 to check each bag and $40 to carry one on. Pay for drinks on flight. No movie. I will never choose to fly Frontier ever again, unless it's my only option."
Pros: "Comfortable seats with sufficient leg room."
Cons: "Very disorganized at airport in dealing with multiple delays. Overheard dealings with others stranded; granted some passengers lost their tempers but employees did the same and sometimes worse. I can't believe after a 3+ hour delay that they can not forget about costs of drinks and snacks to give passengers a small break."
