Pros: "I lucked out and was able to get a emergency row seat which helped tremendously because of having long legs."
Cons: "What I don't like is what is true of all airlines now and that is that if you are born with long legs you are penalized and expected to pay more money than people with short legs - that is prejudice and not fair to people that cannot do anything about it. I understand charging obese people extra because they have a chance to change it. Also, seats are too narrow now!!!"
Pros: "Seat were larger and comfortable"
Cons: "AB 320-200 flight for +5 hours and no entertainment. Nothing on the flight. Could not pre-board on line, so instead of a zone 2 loading sequence we got zone 4. as a person who flies to Europe 4-5 times a year I do not enjoy getting on a plane in the Zone 4-5 sequencing."

Pros: "My husband and I were traveling together to Dallas, and we were unable to sit together-The ticketing agent was very rude when we asked if she could find us seats that were together. She said, "We could ask someone on the flight to switch with us". We paid $738.00 total for both tickets to Dallas, and found it very hard to believe that we could not get seats that were next to each other.

Cons: "very late."
Pros: "Pilot was the best. Best landing ever."
Cons: "Deboarding because they didn't have a plane with the right spoilers so we could land on San Diego's short runway. The pilot had mentioned it and they still boarded us and then had to have over 299 people get off and move to another concourse.

Cons: "No snacks, only beverages and wifi wasn't included in ticket price."
Cons: "Don't do it. Don't fly Frontier. Business model does not provide real training for the staff. No contingency plans for aircraft failures; no training for staff to handle day-to-day normal flights variances (aka, downed aircraft, weather, airport delays). Had three delayed flights trying to leave out of the same gate, instead of separating angry, tired, hungry passengers, they kept them all in the same gate which heightened tensions. Potential crisis situation only made worse."

Cons: "Politeness and actually hidden bag prices"
Cons: "Discount airline, no frills, almost got what I paid for......and paid for, and paid for...."

Pros: "Baggage made it with flt. On-line check-in was easy."

Even highest level upgrade seats were cramped - had more leg room on economy seats on Alaska flt on in-bound flt. Plane was 4 hours late in departing. While pilots seemed friendly, of two stewards, one was downright unpleasant and unhelpful, the other seemed pleasant but was more interested in reading his fashion magazine than providing service to passengers. Will not be flying Frontier again."
Pros: "Quick simple"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seating and can't be adjusted at all"
Cons: "My only complaint is that is not reasonable to be charged by a carry on luggage. I didn't check in any luggage but still have to pay for two carry on one for me and one for my daughter. Not a good policy for business."
Pros: "Smooth check in and friendly staff"
Cons: "Cannot recline the seats"
Cons: "Absolutely one of the top worst flights I have ever taken in 26 years of flying. I honestly wanted to give them a shot. But between out rages bag fees, horrible boarding practices, and disruptive behavior It was terrible."

Pros: "Bigger plan. Not over booked"
Cons: "Price of food"
Cons: "Seats cramped and lousy service."
Pros: "On tome"
Cons: "No food"
Cons: "They charged 40 dollars just to bring a carry on suitcase onto the plane. That's crazy expensive!"

Pros: "Nothing. I asked for a refund and was told i was getting a refund and never received it. I will never use kayak ot frontier ever again"
Pros: "Everyone was helpful"
Cons: "On both flights, the for sale snack options were poorly stocked... no menu cards in my row, when I asked for one (because they told us to chose before they got to us).... they brought me one that was torn and falling apart Most folks around me were surprised they couldn't get water or coffee without paying extra."

Cons: "No wifi"
Pros: "Clean and good service"
Cons: "had to pay for things that were normally free on other airlines."
Pros: "it's not delay"
Cons: "No carry-on package allow with the price, it charges additionally $30/trip. Not good booking experience, the website was keep asking to add any additional charge to the fare. My total fare is totally different from what it's mentioned before because I have to add my bag and everything. The plane itself is not that clean, narrow leg room."
Pros: "Happy energetic voice of pilot"
Cons: "Plane left an hour late."
Pros: "The plane was comfortable. Staff was friendly"
Cons: "There were significant delays without any notification whatsoever. If I hadn't looked on the website repeatedly I would not know of the changing departure times. No apologies or explanations were given while we all waited more than two hours."

Cons: "Really no care for the passengers."
Pros: "Check in was done quickly"
Cons: "Same as above"
Cons: "I do not travel alot and some of this was a disappointment. Making our plane reservation was easy. Then we went to pick our seat assignments. What a surprise when we had to pay more money to just choose our seats. This is a complete rip off for travelers. You already pay to much just to fly and then you pay additional money for seats? And then you pay more money to have a carry on bag. We put this bag under our seat, we carried this bag ourselves, no one from the airline touched this bag, another rip off. I have heard the airlines are not doing great, now I know why. You can include my entire name if you want. Jim Prueter"
Pros: "Once I found out I have to for everything from carry on to water there was nothing to like about booking on Frontier."
