Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Social distanced seating"
Pros: "Crew was great, flight in general was okay"
Cons: "The plane itself and seating was filthy, some unknown substance fell on me from the vent above, there was a bunch of crumbs in the seat buckle that fell out all over my lap when I fastened it. I'm not sure the tray table was wiped down, or at least not very well. The in-flight tracker was completely incorrect, I was on a 4-hour flight and it read 14 hours and counting throughout."
Pros: "Crew was absolutely amazing!"
Cons: "Delta check in was HORRIBLE! I was charged for a bag check in and had to take my bag through security and they threw away my cologne and razors."
Cons: "Everything was great"
Pros: "The movies were good on the plane."
Cons: "Everything! I was given a wheelchair, wheeled to a spot and told to stay there. I waited over an hour. I couldn’t get thru customs and security alone and I had to ask a non employee to help me the whole time, I was then yelled at by an employee because they didn’t think I was handicapped at the gate"
Cons: "They could improve the boarding process."

Pros: "The plane had more leg room and felt less confined because of higher ceilings."
Cons: "The 2 bathrooms in the rear are VERY narrow. I'm average size and barely fit. Also, the waiting area in terminal 3 at LAX is very crowded and noisy and the options for charging portable devices is minimal. I will definitely avoid Delta if I have to go through LAX."

Pros: "Good flight attendants.."
Pros: "Inflight Service is great"

Pros: "got to change my seat and have a spacious exit row"
Cons: "I have the worst opinion of the Delta company, when I was flying to Atlanta on October 20 they changed my flight at the last minute I had to leave until my job to take another flight. Just today when returning my suitcase did not arrive they sent it to another destination. I think the company gives very bad service."
Cons: "Time to bring in dual class flights!"
Pros: "Great Food. Good entertainment. I recommend the aisle seat if you have to go top the bathroom frequently. :-) I felt that the flight attendants were concerned about our comfort on the flights."
Cons: "I would have liked more of a music and movie selection."
Pros: "Perfect flight"
Pros: "Good food and movies. Comfy seating with plenty of room."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and gave great service."

Pros: "Crew was very good and nice on the flight"
Cons: "Flight terminal was changed about 30 to 45 minutes before boarding Flight was delayed due to AC problem Configuration of the plane was terrible. Little leg room but the windows did not align with the seats so a window was shared with two rows making it challenging to open or close a window without disturbing the passenger in the other row with whom the window is being shared. No charging outlets in the terminal or on the plane. Plane had no food to offer for purchase. Expected better from Delta."
Pros: "Flight was smooth and flight attendants were nice."
Cons: "Well delta over sells their flights every time and have to buy people out of their seats. This would be fine if it didn't mean that your seats have to be changed last minute and without your knowledge. I choose a window on purpose because I am claustrophobic. I did not pay for upgrade because I was able to select a seat that was a window...had I known it could change I would have. Zero communication just surprise you have a. Ew seat."
Pros: "Very new plane arrived on time no problems"
Cons: "Nothing everything was great"
Pros: "First class crew was great! Smooth ride, arrived early"
Cons: "Lunch option on LAX-AUS wasn't that good (chicken salad or meatballs), also was pretty sparse on the meal itself compared to other airlines"
Cons: "Missed connection"
Pros: "Crew was attentive, kept us informed throughout, and were friendly. Landing was smooth."
Cons: "Bathroom ran out of tissues and toilet paper halfway through the flight. Alerted the crew, and they added tp. Bathrooms seem to have gotten even narrower, barely any room to move in there! Also, we had to sit on the tarmac after landing for 30 min due to gate traffic. A few minor inconveniences, but overall tolerable."
Pros: "The Delta crew on the flight was wonderful - but the crew at ATL really shined. A huge amount of people for connections arrived at the same time and needed to get through customs and the staff were very calm and efficient in directing everyone and making sure the line moved."
Pros: "The crew was very nice as usual. A bit too many announcements that ran a bit too long. Other than that great folks."
Cons: "No water on the plane so no coffee and no running water in the bathrooms. They did well trying to accommodate but between that and a calibration issue in the cockpit that had us running late it was not the best delta flight I've been on."
Pros: "Clean plane, good service. on time departure, early arrival."
Cons: "I did not like the way the plane was boarded- people could not get into their seats because others blocked the aisles - so chaotic. Passengers were not being rude to one another, it was simply that the process is poor. Could the zones instead reflect both location of seat and area of plane, so that those with window seats at the back board first, then middle seats, then aisle? That way if aisle seats fill first, seated people are not stepping back into the aisle to accommodate others needing to get a seat in that row, while everyone on the gang way must wait for the aisle to clear."
Cons: "New design of the the plane with side to side bathrooms at the back leaves much to be desired. Those were the smallest airplane bathrooms I've ever used!! I had trouble fitting and I'm not a large person!"
Pros: "What they offer is OK."
Cons: "My flight from Madison to Chicago got cancelled and I had to drive for three hors to get to o’ Hare."
Pros: "The boarding was quick and easy as well as the crew was friendly and accommodating. Great end to a fun weekend away."
Cons: "After boarding the plane, it lost power. We sat at the gate with no air conditioning for almost an hour. While they tried to jump start the plane. After deboarding due to the heat (Dallas temps around 105 F), instead of telling us the next available plane to put us on was going to be 5 hours later, they delayed the flight 15-30 minutes at a time. This was a flight from Dallas to Austin and I could have rented a car and driven in a shorter amount of time."
Pros: "I liked the wide and spacious seating."
Cons: "Due to the planes running late we had to board the plane without the plane being cleaned beforehand. I had to ask a stewardess to wipe down the crumbs and spilt coffee on my seat before I could sit down. It was REALLY disgusting!!! There was crumbs all over the seats, Seatbelts and floor."
Cons: "Had a mechanical problem and took us 30 minutes to take off"
Cons: "Flight was delayed an hour. Poor communication with passengers during the process."
Pros: "Same as above."
Cons: "entertainment monitor for my seat did not work at all. also on all flights: I was not aware one needed one's own headphones to hear entertainment."
Pros: "Curteous. Prompt. On time."
Pros: "Good Hospitality"
Cons: "Insuffecient supply of juices etc"
Cons: "My flight was delayed an hour plus and I missed my rental car reservation. So now I'm stuck wih no car."
Cons: "Cramped seating"
Cons: "I bought travel insurance as I do with any trip. I have a complicated family emergency that forced me to call off the trip. Being that I bought trip insurance, I felt good. Well turns out they make you jump through so many hoops that your travel insurance fee is useless. I sent a letter to Allianz (the company that handles the travel insurance) and blasted them for their insensitivity in a difficult time. Going forward, I will not be purchasing travel insurance in the future. It may sound irrational but if you think about it, travel insurance is the tax on gullible people. You hear travel insurance and one assumes that if you spend the extra money on the insurance and something comes up, you can at least get much of your money back. Don't count on it! It's a 1/1000 chance they will do the right thing so the odds are not in people's favor. If you want to be smart, use the money you would have spent on travel insurance on some pre flight cocktails at the airport bar. Air travel is hellish enough without scams like Allianz!"
Cons: "Leg room/space BA offers is calculated for short and small body frame passengers and it is on not acceptable. It feels like cattle Wagon. BA should show consideration for real passengers not some sort of statistical average. I am 6'4" and sitting in your plane's cabin inflicts hours of body pain. The space given is sufficient for children and teenagers. Also sitting in the hot cabin for extended amount of time is extremely uncomfortable. Why there is no cooling and proper air ventilation right from the beginning?"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled"
Pros: "the plane was very new and in excellent condition"
Pros: "NOT much!"
Cons: "My window seat was right against the right engine. I could feel the vibrations and noise. It seemed like an old plane. I was definitely miserable on this flight. Very!"
Pros: "Experienced a 4.5 hr delay to the destination. Family had to pick up grandson (Ibooked trip for him) after midnight in L.A. 2 hour flight delay coming back which pick up had to be re-arranged again by family. Family member flew to us next day via United without any issues. Dont book through this site or use American Airlines!!!"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Love these Non-stop to Austin even though they are always full. Thanks for this luxury of non having to transfer in Dallas."
Cons: "The down side is that these planes are smaller so we didn't have any entertainment and therefore no place to charge digital devices. There is however, wifi to purchase."
Pros: "Great crew."
Cons: "1 hour delay turned into a 3 hour delay. We waited at the airport for more than 4 hours and could've used that time to explore Chicago instead of rushing to the airport only to board, de-plane, and then board again. No vegetarian options were given for food."
Pros: "Everything was timely, courteous & pleasant. The aircraft was very clean."
Cons: "Was very stuffy and hot. Plane never cooled down."
Pros: "I got home safely"
Cons: "The airport was super crowded and the space in the plane was cramped (and I am a small person - 120 pounds). The plane was not clean and I actually picked up a virus on the plane and am still sick. I wiped down all of the surface area around my seat and still got sick. Airline travel is miserable and crowded and there is minimum service."
Cons: "He flight was extremely cold and they did not have any blankets. Very uncomfortable."
Pros: "There were no seats available together so we were upgraded to the extra room seats so that we could all sit together. As a mother flying by herself with 2 children, one of whom is on the Austin spectrum this gesture of being able to keep us together meant so much to all 3 of us. Thank you"
Pros: "I was traveling with two teenagers and originally there weren't 3 seats together. When we got to the gate they had reassigned our seats for us to sit all together. I appreciate that."
Cons: "We had already pulled out of the gate to leave when the captain informed us the plane had maintenance issues and we had to wait for a gate. We waited. When we got to the gate he announced the crew had timed out and that we should take our things and get down to wait for more information. Once at the gate we were told they were trying to put a new crew together for us, including the pilot. While we waited they did provide good quality deli food for us. I appreciate the food but the 5 hour delay, I did not appreciate."
Cons: "Delayed for 4 hours"
Cons: "While trying to get help with my boarding pass, the woman behind the counter was so rude and nasty. Yelled at me for being at her desk when another American employee took me there."
Pros: "I liked the 2 x 2 seating arrangement. Leg room was adequate."
Pros: "I got these flights for dj jobs I had under a us p2 visa. My original flight to dallas was delayed from 12:56 to 8pm which would of landed me in dallas at 2:21am but the club Fat Rabbit closes at 2am Which in fact was a 1300 (US dollar) loss. I re booked my ticket to Austin from Vancouver this morning because the only reason to go dallas was my job. Was supposed to fly in have dinner play music get back on the plane n go Austin but going to dallas was irrelevant and a 7 hour delay was absolutely ridiculous."
Cons: "The fact I lost 1300.00 us has pissed me off I'm contacting AA about this I have my visa papers n contracts to show proof if not action is taken i will be contacting a lawyer"
Cons: "Delayed on the ground and didn't make up any time in the air. Arrived 45 minutes late."
Pros: "WHAT FOOD.,,,,,,.AA DOSE NOT FEE US OR HAVE ANY ENTERTAINMENT,"
Cons: "NOTHING AA IS JUST AS BAD AS FIJI AIRWAYS"
Cons: "Board keeper rude to several guest who didn't want to check in their bag when there was plenty of room on the flight."
Pros: "Both power and USB plugs at each seat. Entertainment options not bad."
Cons: "Very narrow seats with little leg room. Reclined seat in front of you is right in your face."
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "Worst airline I have ever used. Continuously bad experiences."
Pros: "Other than the delay, it was your basic 1 hour flight."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by an hour."
Pros: "once i was allowed to board the flight attendants were kind and apologetic"
Cons: "they overbooked the flight. when I asked for clarification about what I should expect, people at the gate were rude for without provocation. They told me I had no seat and were unapologetic about their mistake. when they, at the last minute, said there was room, they assigned me a seat that was already taken."
Pros: "Checkin was fast. Crew is always pleasant."
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable. I chose to upgrade my seat and was charged but i couldnt see any difference between my seat and anyone elses. I dont understand how it works. Then I was refunded the upgrade amount..."
Pros: "Crew was super nice"
Cons: "Flight was hour late leaving. Seats too close together. Guy next to me dipped himself in cologne before boarding."
Cons: "the flight was 4 hours late. we were constantly shuffled to different gates. the internet on the flight didn't work."
Pros: "The crew, how we left promptly and didn't take ages boarding."
Cons: "The seats, the lack of food options."
Cons: "No snack"
Pros: "Good customer service but to be expected"
Cons: "Horrible bin space Sitting arrangement southwest has better system including free baggage"
Pros: "Plane staff friendly, timely flight, uneventful overall."
Cons: "Gate-side crew forced us to check a carry-on bag when there was plenty of space in the plane bins. No in-flight entertainment, old plane."
Pros: "The lay over wasn't bad at all had enough time to make it to my gate and get something to eat"
Cons: "Was scheduled to leave at 3:15pm didn't leave until 4:17pm"
Pros: "Everything very nice peaple"
Pros: "Left on time arrived on time."
Cons: "We went to the gate early and it was printed on our boarding passes. We left to get some food and came back and tried to board. The gate agent was incredibly rude and sarcastic about telling us that the gate had been changed. They also tried to sell us 3 upgrades when we were trying to get our boarding passes."
Cons: "N/A had to change my flight. :("
Cons: "The flight was fine but there was a 45 minute delay at baggage claim."
Pros: "The flight didn't exceed 15 minutes to take off. Most AA flights I have taken in the past were delayed were 3+ hours. Boarding was completed efficiently and the entertainment, even though was on a common screen, was okay rather showing nothing."
Cons: "The crew was very unprofessional, yelling across the plane because they couldn't figure out the seating arrangements for a family. It seems there was an error on AA's part of overbooking. They also forgot to my husband's beverage and never looked back. It would also be nice to have individual screens with the ability to freely watch entertainment provided."
Cons: "I flew from DC to Austin, through Chicago. Flight was late leaving DC, was late leaving Chicago (mad had a gate change that wasn't announced), and when we go to Austin had to sit in the runway for 20 minutes due to someone else at the gate. I don't know if this was all AA's fault, or just bad luck."
Pros: "Everything was fine once we got on the plane."
Cons: "United took our plane and gave it to another delayed flight, meaning they delayed us by over 4 hours. Didn’t take off until 12:30 am when we were supposed to have taken off at 7:55 pm."
Pros: "frequency of drink/food service. Appreciated the ice cream."
Cons: "Food was not good. chicken or pasta were the choices, we sampled both. Neither was good - some of the worst airplane food Ive had. On our return flight from Munich to Houston we had same choices but it was a different type of chicken - curry chicken - and that was excellent. I would recommend you serve the same thing on your Houston - Munich flights! Seat comfort (bottoms) not so good."
Pros: "The direct TV was free on this leg of my trip"
Cons: "I haven't made it there yet. Flight leaves 4PM Friday. Mechanical problems in Chicago so was put up in Hyatt and I am at the airport now waiting to fly out at 4PM today."
Pros: "Can not think of anything"
Pros: "Polite crew"
Pros: "Boarding was uneventful, but I wish I could have gotten a gate check....I;m 76 and getting my bag above the seat is difficult. But the gate attendant said there was no gate check on that flight."
Cons: "I had a center seat and that is very uncomfortable for me."
Cons: "See above"
Cons: "I was bumped from my confirmed flight and had to sprint across the airport to catch an earlier flight where they put me in the back of the plane in a middle seat with an entertainment monitor that didn't work. The flight attendant said she'd try to reset the monitor and then never came back the rest of the flight. I also was not compensated for agreeing to take another flight than the one I booked, paid for and successfully checked in for. I also got into Austin later than I wanted with this new flight I was forced to take. Overall this experience was a terrible one unfortunately."
Pros: "Boarding and de-boarding seemed quicker than other flights on other airlines"
Cons: "Noisy/ squeaky seat"
Pros: "It was a good flight."
Pros: "On time..nice staff"
Pros: "Tsa stopped all in my party for private screening to run us very late.."
Pros: "Everything was fine"
Pros: "Flight was on time even with a take off delay"
Cons: "On late flight would be nice with pillow/blanket Somewhere along the way our approved TSA locks were taken and zipper on one suitcase broken because of it. Not happy about that."
Pros: "I liked the fact that it was non stop to Denver."
Cons: "I did not like waiting on the plane for over an hour while the plane waited to get fuel."
Pros: "Flight and crew was great."
Cons: "Kids whose mother didn't seem to think it was appropriate to keep her damn kids quiet during basically an overnight flight, let them fight continuously, making noise and kicking the back of my seat even after repeated attempts at glaring at all of them. Really wish flight attendants would get more involved in these situations. Sigh."
Pros: "The flight was a head of schedule and very smooth."
Cons: "It was freezing cold. I was wearing a sweater and was freezing."
Cons: "Wifi did not work. Limited food & beverage choices."
Cons: "The baggage claim at San Luis obispo was not acceptable"
Pros: "The seat was comfortable, leg room, no one hitting me when I was sleeping"
Pros: "Looking out the windows admiring the clouds"
Cons: "Nothing it was overall a nice flight"
Pros: "Fast boarding"
Pros: "UA did a good job, but Houston International was closed off/on due to bad weather, so it was a mess."
Pros: "The flight was on time, and the attendants courteous."
Cons: "However, the seats were so cramped, it was pretty miserable, even for just a 2 hour flight. With no snacks even offered because of turbulence, and no working wifi or seat back TVs, there was nothing to distract from how uncomfortable we all were. Plus, Austin's airport layout requires travelers to walk awfully far to get bags and then a rental car. Don't dare be disabled or feeling unwell--you'll never make it! Of course our gate was furthest from baggage claim, & someone's has to be. Nevertheless, it's a terrible layout, w/ pedestrians pushing through boarding queues and where others are lined-up to buy food."
Pros: "Easy enough"
Cons: "should have happened yesterday."
Cons: "Terrible delays during boarding with no seating in boarding area after boarding is called to begin."
Cons: "There was no food serviced and no entertainment"
Pros: "2 of the flight attendants were really nice. I had an empty seat next to me."
Cons: "They board us on the plane only to have us wait for an hour for our pilot. That's terrible business to have that many paying people to wait for anything, especially a ride before midnight. I asked a flight attendant if she could let me watch the tv in front of me for free considering the inconvenience. She responded in a very matter of fact tone explaining my inconvenience was not a very big deal and actually lied about the landing time to make my claims sound less worthy. I feel like jet blue, virgin and southwest are the only airlines that still care about the customer and their experience and not just how to squeeze more money out of them."
Pros: "Entertainment was great p"
Cons: "Leg room on economy was non-existent"
Pros: "Bigger planes"
Pros: "Boarding went quickly. We were ahead of schedule. The crew was very nice."
Cons: "At 5 ft tall I still felt like a sardine smushed in a tin can."
Pros: "Had the whole row to myself! Got to relax and lay down the whole flight."
Cons: "Wifi cost $7; only worked 15 min."
Cons: "no food and no entertainment"
Cons: "I'm still stuck due to cancelled flight, no answer from anyone, have been on hold at least 9 HOURS with UNITED. No other flights offered, no communication at all from Kayak flight insurance, or anyone else."
Pros: "The United help desk was very accommodating, and the woman who helped me went out of her way to find me a flight with another airline that would get me to my destination faster than the next United flight. She was also kind enough to upgrade the first half of my trip to first class at no extra charge."
Cons: "While my journey was pleasant once it began, I arrived at my destination 10 hours later than planned. I was supposed to have a quick direct flight to Austin from Newark I the morning, and it was cancelled because the pilot didn't show up. There was no rescheduled flight, and suddenly 60+ people were trying to find extra seats on the next Austin flights which were of course also booked. Many people were put on standby, but the next flight was overbooked so not even everyone with tickets made it on the plane. I ended up having a 2 leg, 6 hour journey that left 5 hours after my planned departure (which was a direct 3 hour flight)."
Cons: "Had to pay over $200 to check bags and dog, won't be flying United anytime soon."
Pros: "Great hospitable crew. Took a minute to get off the ground, but better safe than sorry!"
Cons: "Flight was late as usual with united. Every time I fly United there is some kind of delay. The landing was awful as well"
Pros: "Was boarded quickly"
Cons: "No charge ports for my phone Small plane for a full flight with limited overhead space"
Cons: "Seats very hard and uncomfortable"
Cons: "Seating,constant advertising,flight atendands,delay all in this order"
Pros: "Everything! Trip was so smooth"
Cons: "Took a while to take off and the screens weren't working throughout the flight."
Pros: "Everything was great"
Pros: "That I got to my destination"
Cons: "Seats very uncomfortable, could not hear/understand announcer"
Cons: "My flight from San Francisco to Austin was delayed for 5 hours. It was horrible. We didn't get to Austin till midnight. I live an hour away from Austin and I had to pay so much on cab because my ride can't drive her car that late to Austin."
Pros: "The crew was friendly, and positive. The flight was shorter than projected."
Cons: "On our 5:10 AM flight home to Milwaukee from Austin the plane was delayed by 50 minuets because "not all of the crew had arrived yet". Wish a checked bag wasn't so pricey. I get paying 25$ but not 45$. It was a cheap round trip flight- but we definitely "got what we paid for" in that sense."
Pros: "Literally terrible service"
Pros: "Direct flight and price"
Cons: "Flight was delayed about 3 hours"
Pros: "I finally got to my destination 3 1/2 hours late."
Cons: "I lost my car rental and had to spend a whole night in the airport."
Pros: "Fast. 20 minutes early"
Cons: "Didn't see how to decline my seat. Oh well"
Cons: "Delayed 1 hr The tray top is so small and inconvenient that it is rendered useless"
Pros: "Fare, boarding, seat selection, ease of purchase."
Cons: "On my first leg of my round trip flight free refreshments were offered. On my return flight they were not and was told everything beside water only was available for purchase. It also seemed a bit unsafe for during the course of the short 2:15 hr flight between Chicago and Austin for the Pilots to leave the cockpit with the only things standing between someone rushing the cockpit when the door is opened are a drink cart and an older female flight attendant."
Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "Seating is awful, like sitting on a brick NO RECLINE in economy seating and small. Avoid Airbus A321 planes whenever possible"
Pros: "Really helpful flight attendants"
Cons: "Very small (smaller than my kindle) tray tables. It was a very loud plane as well"
Pros: "Ahead of schedule"
Cons: "No drink service, no entertainment, very expensive. Never again"
Pros: "The fares are unbeatable"
Cons: "Consistently late."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled. Next flight two days later."
Pros: "See aforementioned."
Cons: "Wish that you cou;d use Apple Pay or at least a credit card to purchase snacks/drinks, etc."
Pros: "I liked that I was able to select a seat."
Cons: "I did not like that I had to pay extra to select a seat, especially because the seat was not any more comfortable or spacious than the other seats on the plane. The staff rolled their eyes when customers requested service. I am never flying Frontier again."
Cons: "First off, it's ridiculous that after buying a ticket aboard Frontier online, nothing was mentioned before hand about purchasing a seat!!!! - really, what was the ticket supposed to cover. Then, large charges for a small carry-on and also a checked bag that I did online. Then worse, aboard the plane, I discovered that all cokes, etc. and peanuts, etc. had to be purchased. You talk about cheap and greedy. The flight back from Denver was even worse as it was running almost an hour and a half behind, then they switched gates, and after finally boarding at the other gate, we sat at the boarding gate for over an hour, with very little contact or explanation from the crew, not even offering passengers a drink of water."
Pros: "The price was cheap. Boarding was easy. Pilots were very nice."
Cons: "No entertainment. Have to pay for everything even just water which makes no sense. Crew did not want to be there and was not helpful. Took forever for people to get off much slower than other flights."
Cons: "Everything. Maintenance issue. Debording in Austin. Seat confusion. Never again!"
Pros: "We got there safe and sound."
Cons: "The gates were changed almost at the last minute and we didn't hear any announcements. A few passengers we're almost late for boarding. I found out because some lady came by and asked if this was the flight to some where else. That's how I found out the gates were changed. I told the rep to make sure that they make the announcement so everyone knows of the changes. I could of got on the wrong plane and missed my flight."
Cons: "While the fare for Frontier was reasonable; I chose them because of flight schedule. However, I couldn't believe how much more I had to pay than just the fare. Baggage fees for not only checked bag but carry-on plus the seat selection added $94 EACH WAY to my costs. That is unforgiving. I'm back to Southwest."
Pros: "We left on time and got in early."
Cons: "The seats are crazy narrow, you have to pay a lot extra to have any legroom at all, basically 18th century slave ship seating. Virtually all baggage is an up charge, even carry on, and they wouldn't even give you a bottle of water, that was like $2 or so. At the end of the day, a $105 ticket winds up costing $335"
Cons: "The stewardess announced baggage would be at 3, so we followed signs to baggage claim #3 and waited over 1/2 hour to find out she should have said TERMINAL 3. We had to take a bus to that terminal, ended up 2 hours behind schedule."
Pros: "The crew was fantastic especially on the way to Las Vegas!"
Cons: "Cramped for space, and you had to pay for any and every beverage you got---even water. Also NO free snacks like peanuts."
Pros: "It 's good and bad . For the good thing its fly on time. The bad thing its when the air plane going to lend it was too loud to made air hearts."
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "I paid extra for first class and it wasnt first class. Not worth the extra money."
Pros: "Once we got on the airplane (which we almost missed due to check in delays), the flight was fine. The inability to recline seats at least guaranteed me some room to use the tiny tray table."
Cons: "Nickel and dining at every turn of the road. Very slow, understaffed check in. Tray tables too small to use for any real purpose."
Cons: "The overall process of flying with frontier had much to be desired. I couldn't even get a glass of water on the flight. The boarding process was slower than slow and the gate crew and flight crew made that process worse. They kept telling us we were going to board and then we waited and waited and waited. Very unfriendly."
Pros: "That it wasn't overbooked or crowded. It was on time, actually a little early. Direct flight."
Cons: "To find out I had to pay for a seat selection and a carry on bag! Silly me I thought the price of a ticket included a seat. Overall round trip an extra $92.00!!! For real? Give me a break. Seats are uncomfortable, they didn't recline. I have flown Frontier before and it was not like this at all. Don't even get a complimentary beverage."
Pros: "Got me to my destination on time."
Cons: "Really? I must pay for everything even water or coffee? Airbus seating was cramped, Tray tables were so small that my cut could not securely sit on it with small children bumping the seat in front of me. Riding on a bus is more comfortable. After 3 hours my back was sore from the stiff seats."
Pros: "Was good, seats lacked comfort, everything else was great, thanks!"
Pros: "Efficient flight and boarding."
Cons: "I didn't know how to rate food and entertainment since I didn't use those services. Why must the Frontier flights always be late? It was delayed both out to LasVegas and back to Milwaukee. Also, we were told that the flight to Milwaukee was delayed but it NEVER showed on the departures board nor was the time changed at the gate. These seem to be simple adjustments to make for all passengers to see that there was a change but it was never done and led to a lot of confusion."
Pros: "The flight was fast and straight forward."
Cons: "Paying for a carry on Seats do not recline No complimentary beverages Flight was delayed and we rarely received updates I understand that you charge for everything in order to offer better prices, but by the time the customer pays to bring on luggage, we are paying the same price as an airline that allows baggage for free with inclusive drinks, snacks and seats that recline."
Pros: "Did not have food"
Pros: "The flight was nonstop so that was good. Got me back and forth, that was good. Seems like a cheap airline that has cut expenses every which way. Carryon baggage fee, food and drink cost, seats don't recline and are too narrow."
Pros: "Charging for a carry on bag at the last minute when I was checking in was unprofessional. It didn't leave me with an option to choose and it was misleading. I will not be flying frontier again. Congrats on being sneaky and losing another customer. Also the pilot was awful."
Cons: "It just sucks! Lost the bags for our flight and 3 other flights before than us"
Pros: "Price On time Good gate locations"
Cons: "Didn't know what would happen if I did' pay for my seat. Would I have a seat? This was the first time I flew with Frontier so I didn't know all the ins and outs."
Cons: "I was forced to gate check my mini skateboard, although it could easily and safely fit under my seat, and it wasn't there when I reached my final destination. While waiting at the gate check, the pilot informed me that it should be at the baggage claim. After waiting an hour for my checked bag, the skateboard never showed up. I spoke with baggage services and they tried calling the gate and no one would answer. I waited an extra hour and still no skateboard. Very poor service"
Pros: "After flying Frontier Airlines for the first time with my 4 year old daughter, I was pleasantly surprised with my entire experience. The staff was very friendly and helpful at the gates, the flight attendants were amazing and both of my flights arrived earlier than expected!!! I will fly Frontier whenever possible!!"
Cons: "No airline miles for flying with this carrier, but for the price of my tickets and for the savings it didn't matter to me anyways!"
Cons: "-Crew was non-existent and when present was robotic -There was no food of any sort -There was no entertainment of any sort -Boarding was late -Seats were EXTREMELY uncomfortable. Will not fly this airline again even if I have to pay more -Baggage pricing was exorbitant"
Cons: "I'm not a fan of when you purchase a ticket thinking you've paid the biggest expense and it shouldn't be too bad after that. Little was I aware I was going to be spending an additional 200$ just to pick a seat (so I could sit next to the person I purchased the ticket with), and check a bag (because carrying on was more expensive). I'd rather have the full up front cost than add it on when I don't have a choice."
Pros: "This was our first time flying Frontier and we were very pleased. The flight staff was very accommodating, outgoing, friendly, and funny. We will fly Frontier again."
Cons: "Flight attendants, price, smooth landing and takeoff"
Cons: "Paid extra for front row and it was not comfortable at all."
Cons: "There was a family with 3 young kids, Infant and a like 4 and 5 year old, complete brats with parents that were unable to control and they were loud and awful the entire flight. The flight crew did nothing, and I was grateful to be 2 rows away and not the people that were getting pounded by the kids feet. Not really Frontier's fault, but the crew could have tried to get the parents to do more. Having once 5 Daughters 8 and younger, more could have been done. Here's a hint: Even a slight effort saying something, to show you actually acknowledge the issue would have been some comfort to those of us around this family. Kids will often listen better to people other than parents."
Pros: "The crew was extremely nice. The plane seemed clean."
Cons: "The seats were tight. Not much leg room. Very expensive to check luggage, $40!"
Pros: "It was cheap if you don't have any bags."
Cons: "Very old airplane, if you have any carry-on you'll have to pay $45, the crew wasn't really that friendly, the plane just felt old, like the oldest plane I've ever been on. It didn't take turbulence well, so we were getting knocked around the entire flight. They were offering 'free water" as if it were some big favor."
Cons: "Frontier's policy of paying for carry on or checked stinks! When I looked around at the amount of people waiting at the baggage carousel, they are making a bunch of money from that policy! Their website is terrible to negotiate when trying to pay for that bag, or choose seats. Customers are offered beverages, as you might guess there is a fee attached to that- $1.99 for a can of coke, really? Frontier will never be my first choice with this type of baggage policy. They made a lovely announcement at the end of the flight about expanding their fleet of planes, etc. Apparently from reading the reviews others have the same complaint, anyone @ Frontier, listening or reading these?"
Cons: "No option for electronic boarding pass Must pay for seat selection Must pay for carry on luggage Must pay for refreshments Nickle and dime the customer on everything. Just make tickets more expensive and include those options instead of the current shady practice to mislead the customer into thinking the ticket is cheaper."
Cons: "My flight was cancelled and Frontier refused to put me on another flight as they said I was a no-show. I sat at the airport almost 3 hours before my flight which was at 12:45 am 11/21/15. Because it was past Mid-night it did not show on their computer system till next day and so they said they could not see it even though I had a printed boarding pass and was checked in, this caused me another ticket, hotel, extra parking, and dog care. Almost $600 extra. I will never use this airline again. No telling how many other passengers they did this to."
Pros: "Didnt have any food or entertainment on flight"
Cons: "Pricey airplane food."
