Instead I got a flight to another city two hours away and had to rent a car to make it to my destination."
Cons: "For the first 1.5 hours of the flight one of the flight attendants was talking bad nonstop about previous customers. Then when we landed there was a passive attitude in her tone when she told everyone to exit the plane quickly because they had a flight leaving right after and needed to clean the aircraft in a timely manner.

Pros: "Good food, excellent service"

Cons: "The crew appeared tired, scattered, and unhappy. The flight was delayed after boarding nearly 1hr while repairs were completed. 1st announcement by captains crew stated passengers could disembark during repair, then stated 10min later to take a seat. Very poor communication."
Pros: "Wifi for entertainment worked well"
Cons: "No longer have entertainment on back of seats"
Pros: "Nice views on the east side of the flight. Caught Mt. Rainier, Mt. Adams, Lake Tahoe, Yosemite Half Dome, Edwards AFB, downtown LA Free Gogo in-flight wifi allowed Google Maps to work well, though nothing else seemed to load. In-flight magazine was well-written."
Cons: "Flight ran a bit late due to departure congestion."
Pros: "Getting to China, albeit two days late."
Cons: "The fact that the lack of knowledge regarding international travel visas by the counter staff and supervisor meant that two days of the vacation were lost. Upon arrival in China the 144 hour travel visa was granted with no problem within minutes, but the U.S. staff was completely befuddled by the possibility. The interrogation was completely stressful and resulted in a reschedule of the original flight and during the second attempt at flying even an email from the U.S. consulate with a link to the Shanghai/Chinese government immigration site was deemed "not official enough". i will be expecting proper compensation. I was once given an $850 travel voucher for voluntarily giving up my seat, and was flown first class to Hawaii, given 4 star accomodation and then flown first class on to China within 48 hours. This was an involuntary bump from our chosen flight time, all because of a lack of knowledge about current visa regulations and international law on the part of the check in staff. We have been loyal Delta users for over 15 years, and this was the biggest blunder ever. Also humiliating and extremely frustrating, stressful and a big problem with fulfilling our travel plans between son and father."
Pros: "The entertainment system had a wide selection of good movies to watch."
Cons: "The seat was busted and could barely recline at all."
Pros: "Great staff, polite and helpful"
Cons: "Small seats"
Pros: "Very attentative."
Cons: "Aircraft was smelling bad! Hygiene is the key"
Pros: "Helpful staff. Never felt rushed if I had a question. The special meal (VLML) was excellent. Tasty, filling and nutritious Plenty of foot room in economy."
Pros: "The cinnamon cookies, the in-flight movie selection, and the helpful flight crew helped make this flight not as bad as it could have been."
Cons: "There was an infant in the seat directly behind me that chose to cry and scream through a large part of the flight. The mother of this child did not/was not able to keep the child from crying. Even with headphones on, this child's crying persisted to pierce the ears of every passenger within 5 rows of it."
Pros: "Nice Pajamas. Individual window seat. Decent food."
Cons: "Seat ptich could be/should be - wider. Snacks can be better and have better option.. ( only Apple for a fruit? Gimme a break)"
Pros: "Nothing. Delta sucks!"
Cons: "Poor management prior boarding"
Pros: "The movies."
Cons: "Horrible food and Very very uncomfortable seats. Absolutely NO leg room. One of these days Delta is going to be sued for deep vein thrombosis (blood clot)."
Cons: "Crew forget to feed quarter of passenger, and did it after reminder from passenger. No movies with Russian translation or titles. Flight arrived at Amsterdam 50 min later, and we missed our direct flight to Kiev"
Pros: "Economy seats are comfortable. I wasn't compressed in any way sitting in a window seat. Delta is my go-to airline. Not always the least expensive, but it's usually a pleasant trip."
Pros: "Delta used to be such a good quality airline, but lately, the fact that you have to pay for all checked luggage, small overhead compartments, and the over-selling of seats makes it feel cheap and less stable. I think the boarding process should start with people in the back of the airplane and fill the plane back to front. Boarding would be more efficient."
Pros: "Entertainment system was a plus"
Cons: "Boarding order. I was toward the back of the aircraft yet had to wait until last"
Cons: "Must have been an older Delta jet. It had no entertainment. The wifi was poor."
Pros: "Crew was very helpful."
Cons: "This flight was delayed 5+ hours past its scheduled 12:15 departure due to mechanical issues with the plane. Delta was only able to offer a $50 travel voucher for this huge inconvenience."
Pros: "Overall, the flight was good. It actually wasn't a Delta flight but an Alaska Airlines flight."
Cons: "The aircraft was new model 737-800, very nice! Except the seats are a bit hard. Not good for a 5 hour flight. What really made me angry is I paid for a Delta flight. What difference does it make!? On long Delta flights, you get a meal (you pay for it in the cost of your ticket), but I was put on an Alaska Airlines flight where the meals are $7.50! I think that if Delta puts you on an affiliated airline, they should pick up the tab for the meal. Entertainment is via your smartphone. Don't have a smartphone, no problem, cough up $10 for a 2 bit tablet to watch a movie!"
Pros: "On time. Came around with water often."
Cons: "Just said we were being served a meal on my ticket and we didn't get one. Probably just as well since it was a turbulent take off and landing :-)"
Pros: "Crew was efficient and pleasant making for a good experience."
Pros: "Crew was amazing. Seats were comfo"
Cons: "Had to buy another ticket"
Cons: "Flights had to be changed due to a delay on first flight that would make it impossible to take the connecting flight. My route and airlines were completely changed, which caused a big delay in original arrival time. In addition to that, my luggage did not make it and I'm still waiting to find out where my suitcases are. Very disappointed."
Pros: "On time and the staff was great"
Cons: "Unbelievably poor customer support. They accidentally canceled my flight and when I tried to retrieve my seat back, the lady was taking it as somebody else problem... If the AA was the one made an error of canceling my seat, I wished they would show at least an attitude of taking responsibility to fix the problem."
Pros: "The air stewardesses were extremely cordial and continuously asked if the passengers needed anything many times during the flight. It's a small gesture but I appreciated it very much. Free wifi (for movies/in-flight entertainment) was also a plus."
Pros: "Even though we were group 6 both ways, boarding was smooth and fast! We arrived early and was able to check our overpacked carry-on. Luggage was unloaded within minutes of our getting to the baggage claim. We were even able to move up to the middle of the plane coming back home!"
Cons: "Nothing comes to mind!"
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Numerous delays."
Cons: "No personal entertainment devices on 737-800."
Pros: "Like the clean, comfortable seating. Great crew service and in time!"
Pros: "Staff was awesome!"
Cons: "As was getting in line for security, overheard it was at least a one-half hour wait. The wait was actually pretty close to 1/2 hr."
Cons: "Unable to sleep on the redeye from Seattle to Philly owing to a loud, constant alarm for the entire flight."
Cons: "The check in process at JFK was a disaster. The kiosk check in machines were constantly malfunctioning, where to line up was unclear, and staff acted frustrated. After several failed attempts with the kiosks you have to wait in line to check in at the counter anyways. It would have saved almost an hour of my time to just go straight to the counter-- had I been allowed to. I wanted to check a bag which contained some fragile items. Several bottles of wine which I wrapped in bubble wrap and cushioned with my packed clothes. I requested a "Fragile" sticker to be put on my bag. I was told "We don't do that here". So I asked if they handle ALL bags with extreme care and I was laughed at and told to go on my way. When I got my bag at my destination-- the outside of my leather suitcase was sliced to the lining. There were scuff marks and torn leather. My wine had been completely shattered. Not just a crack in the bottle, but flattened completely. My clothes were stained, my bag ruined. I don't know if putting a fragile sticker on would have prevented this, but I don't understand why they just "don't do that". We are trusting our property to the airline when we check bags. I will never trust American Airlines ever again. They don't want to know if I have anything fragile, and they don't care when I tell them."
Pros: "Quick and easy thanks"
Pros: "Entertainment system Leg room"
Cons: "Just one package of snacks for a 6 hour flight Delays going out of NYC"
Cons: "They cancelled my flight in the middle of the night and rebooked for 3 hours later really strapping me for time at my destination"
Pros: "My daughter liked the movie Gifted on the flight. Only decent experience in 2 days of travel"
Cons: "Worst experience with an airline ever. Never going to fly AA again. They lost 3 valued customers."
Pros: "Tons of entertainment options, friendly crew, flight was on time"
Cons: "My seat was not clean"
Pros: "love it!"
Pros: "plane had lots of leg room- movies were free"
Cons: "bought ticket online for an Alaska Airlines flight 3 weeks prior to flight online, picked seat, too. When I checked in online 24 hours to flight, it became an American Airlines lflight, and my seat was gone, and when I checked at the gate, I had NO SEAT! I was the last person to board the flight- no seat choice!! Absolute bullshit when I pay for ticket and pick seat 3 weeks prior- on June 6. Didn't even know if I was going to get on flight until last minute."
Pros: "Sittings on the tarmac for 90 minutes no airs no waters. 114 degrees"
Cons: "The very least employees should offer customer some waters to cool of"
Cons: "Chair wasn't that comfortable"
Cons: "Flight was delayed because of weather. No fault of carrier."
Pros: "Customer service was excellent. Smooth flight. Early."
Cons: "In Charlotte the kiosks were not acting right. The agents were still exceptional but you could tell they were frustrated"
Pros: "All the staff were super friendly and warm. The customer service was top notch - beyond beyond amazing. The seats were comfortable. And the cups for our complimentary beverage weren't kids sized! I received a normal cup! The whole experience was a breath of fresh air."
Cons: "There was only one *tiny* negative... baggage. It would have exceeded my expectations if baggage was included instead of an additional fee. But this is wouldn't deter me from flying with American Airlines."
Cons: "Terribly uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "Well organised"
Pros: "Flight was smooth and comfortable."
Cons: "I didn't find the crew very friendly and often don't on AA. Boarding was difficult as the agent was difficult to hear/understand."
Pros: "Roomy aisle seat"
Cons: "Despite paying 5 months in advance, couldn't check in online or reserve seats without paying extra. AA customer service told me there were no more "complimentary " seats!! Very tight legroom in cabin."
Pros: "Kind and attentive crew"
Cons: "Was a bit delayed"
Cons: "Your plane needs outlets to charge electronics. Unless your gonna show movies on your flights, ppl need a way to entertain themselves for the flight. If they burn through all their battery power, it's an inconvenience to try to charge it in the airport when they land. All of the outlet Chargers in Chicago, Seattle and Philly were broke as well. The U tied wing was amazing. Your prices are great but to keep ppl from rather paying more just for one or two more luxuries, try fixing this."
Pros: "The flight overall because we arrived early."
Cons: "The fact that we were on the plane and was not allowed to enjoy the entertainment as I did with my flight to Seattle."
Cons: "Too many levels of passengers"
Pros: "The crew at least made an attempt to be friendly"
Cons: "The seats were extremely uncomfortable the flight was delayed, and most importantly I booked my flight for san Francisco (sfo) and got sent to san Diego and had to book a $130 bus ticket and spend 14 hours on a bus."
Pros: "The crew was the best"
Cons: "Wish I had a movie to watch"
Pros: "Wanted more polite crew"
Cons: "The lady was rude need more skills"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "We sat on the tarmac for an hour after we landed. Missed my connection, no other flights that night. It wasn't even 10 pm yet."
Cons: "I'm not sure why I paid Alaska Airlines, and received confirmation emails from Alaska Airlines, but whenever I went to check in for my flights Alaska Airlines couldn't do anything for me. Instead all they did was tell me to go to American Airlines if I wanted help. I gave you my money Alaska Air.. how about you help me?"
Cons: "Our flight from Seattle to JFK was delayed over 11 hours, not because of weather or mechanical issue, but because a flight attendant fell ill and American Airlines had no one to take his or her place. They had to fly in an employee from Texas to cover the shift. Are you kidding me? I understand there are unforeseen events but any reputable airline should have a personnel contingency plan better than that. As a result, we lost a whole day of our vacation, missed our Broadway performance, and others missed their business meetings. All the alerts informing us of the delay were sent long after they already occurred. I will avoid flying American again at all costs."
Pros: "Flight attendants and boarding personnel are very friendly."
Cons: "Mediocre food and entertainment. Internet price are ridiculous compared to competitors ( just flew SouthWest - so much better). Cost at about $6 for a half-hour. They had to bring the cleaning crew back on to clean parts of the plane - it was to dirty for anyone to sit in one row."
Pros: "Nice flight. Nice aircraft. Very nice flight attendants. Thank you."
Cons: "No issues at all."
Pros: "The captain of the plane did a phenomenonal job communicating with the passengers on board. He provided us information on location, altitude, and let us know when to expect turbulence which I thought was great, as many do not communicate much with the passengers. Also the plane was in good conditions and was comfortable."
Cons: "We weren't given very much information about situation that caused to make an emergency landing in Charlotte NC."
Pros: "Very simple transfer by bus to another airport location Left about on-time Landed on-time--very fast flight to San Diego Pleasant crew Spacious seating area"
Cons: "Nothing--it was all good"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly."
Pros: "I got to my destination."
Cons: "But I arrived hours late."
Cons: "Over an hour delay"
Cons: "The seating was the worst I've ever had in my life and I've traveled my whole life. After I finish this trip I will never take United again. Everything else was wonderful"
Cons: "The flight was canceled because of the weather and then I have to wait more hours in the airport for the next flight.."
Cons: "Did not make connection due to flight being late"
Pros: "Sat by united pilot who was just on flight to go to training and was with my 10 mo old daughter and was absolutley wonderful, so helpful and Im sure it was not an ideal situation for him. On second flight we sat next to flight attendant and a trainee and made our first flight trip... that could have been awful great! Big thanks to all the staff."
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "No problems"
Cons: "Worst flight I've ever had... stayed on the runway for 45 min and didn't say one word to the passengers"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "As with all other flights, no room to breath."
Cons: "The gang stalkers that Kayak and United let sit next to me."
Cons: "Delays, multiple gate changes"
Cons: "Flight was delayed twice"
Cons: "I'm a normal sized man and the seats were terribly cramped. I likely won't fly United again as long as I have a choice."
Pros: "More important than the trip home last Wednesday was the reason for the trip. We attended my granddaughter's wedding. Everything else was secondary. Even if the trip had been in a one wheeled barrow, it would have been good. To get to what you want which is the mechanics of the trip. The two people who attended to the aisle chair, most teams were competent. Some hadn't done many passengers so they were fumbling with the straps. I've learned that I almost alway have to ask for one at the gate where they check or issue, (what's it called, loading permits, some kind of pass, not landing pass. loading pass. I can't remember and my wife has gone to bed.) Well, they have to come up with an aisle chair because I've only got 1 1/2 legs. I always make it to the seat on the plane, but the competency of the various crews is uneen. Sorry my answer is so nonspecific but I don't remember one airline from another. Great people all, get the job done."
Cons: "Not much I don't like. They get us there That is the main thing. Sometimes when the plane stops after it has pulled away from the Jet Way, the pilot gives an explanation that I find unfulfilling, not enough details. I suppose if they explained more, other fliers would find the explanation too verbose. I can live with it. Again this is about all flights and airlines. Nothing stands out, such as, " this awful thing happened when we left San Francisco.""
Pros: "I liked the crew once we were on the plane"
Cons: "The plane was full and we were on basic economy. The folks at the gate were rude and unhelpful, at the United kiosk the personnel were openly hostile. Thank goodness the crew treated us with some decency and were very nice."
Pros: "Flight was smooth and on time"
Cons: "The boarding gate attendants were rude and uncaring when we asked them to help us switch pre-assigned seats to ensure our two year old sat with us. While we might have understood better had they been empathetic, they were rude and uncaring and said when you book online you sign a waiver and they can not do anything about this. Wow. This was our flight back. Originally on the way to our destination we had used Delta and that customer service experience was completely different even though that flight was full too. Never flying United again as long as I can avoid it."
Pros: "Boarding, flight time"
Pros: "Flight attendants were great. They brought the food and drink cats down the aisle at least 5 times each during the flight."
Cons: "In flight entertainment system worked great for the first hour or so and then would spool for several minutes for every minute of movie that it would play. Flight attendants could not so anything to fix it."
Pros: "Left on time."
Pros: "The plane was newer at least. And I made a big enough stink when they made me check my bubble-wrapped framed paintings that they actually did get hand carried and made it okay."
Cons: "These are the smallest seats I have ever experienced on a domestic airline. I'm 6'-4" and I couldn't fit comfortably on their newer 737. The thing that took the cake was that the cabin crew absolutely refused to let me take one of the 5 empty exit row seats telling me that it wasn't fair to the people who paid more, which absolutely enraged me. So then apparently it's also fair that their seats will fit someone who is 5'-4" comfortably but not someone who is 6'-4"?? So it's fair that I can't afford to pay an extra $100+ for it after my profession got gutted in the recession and I make a fraction now of that I used to make? Making your customers suffer for no good reason is inexcusable. I will not be flying United again. Ever."
Pros: "Cramped seatting, minimal food or beverage options and we were invited to provide our own entertainment. Pretty typical flight for ten or fifteen years ago. The crew was extremely pleasant. Very surprising and maybe the only saving grace."
Cons: "The airline is clearly trying to maximize profits by squeezing any comfort from the plane while still charging ludicrous amounts. Good for them. That's their free market choice. But do not then be startled that everyone is angry before, during, and after your flights. In the long run that's how you shed customers."
Cons: "Need to pay to watch TV"
Pros: "The flight"
Cons: "The time"
Pros: "Crew was very kind, helpful, and informative."
Cons: "Outlet doesn't have USB slot for charging. No TV screens for the seats on the flight."
Cons: "The leg room was abysmal."
Pros: "Nice employees."
Cons: "Four hour delay, caused missed connection. Had a 3 hour plus layover but not long enough. 17 hours SEA to LAX. Not sure there won't be more delays."
Pros: "Crew was nice and lots of different choices of food."
Cons: "So crowded on the plane you could barely even use the restroom."
Cons: "6 hour layover, had to set on last row. The Delta flight was delayed."
Pros: "The staff on the flight was great! They treated us like family. Great job. United Airlines."
Cons: "Wish the free in flight entertainment was available on the United app for this flight"
Pros: "When it was over."
Cons: "Had to wait, probably 5 minutes, while holding my bags right outside the plane for an employee to do something. The attendants were unfriendly, unknowledgeable, and not available. Crammed 3 of us in the seat before emergency exit row seats, about 1" from my knee to back of seat in front of me and a 90 degree angle back, although there were many, many rows with only 1 person in them. One woman had enough room to stretch out and sleep across all 3 seats. Our seats didn't recline but the row in front of us did which made it even more cramped. Tried to ask attendant to move but couldn't find one for over an hour. Tried to ask an attendant but he just walked by me. Pushed call button and he says oh you want to move? There's a seat over here, before I could see where, he walked away. Moved myself to a row with 1 other person who was angry she now had to share "her" 3 seats. She typed angrily all flight and kept putting her legs and personal items as close to me as possible. She used both trays to hold her laptop and spread herself out so I'd be uncomfortable. Could've been prevented if the attendant had talked to the woman first then moved me. Had to wait when getting my drink because the attendant turned to help others, 4 times, after she'd already asked me what I wanted. She got food for someone while I waited. She made change for someone while I waited. She walked away to do something for someone while I waited. She served someone else while I waited. Asked attendant where the electric plug in was and she said the plane didn't have one, I said the sticker says the plane does, she walked away. Worst experience ever. Won't fly this airline again because of this experience."
Pros: "Crew was very pleasant and helpful. Comfort is OK but that's because we shelled out $35 per seat extra."
Cons: "Food is actually not applicable"
Cons: "Staff was rude and not helpful at all. Delayed over 3 hours waiting on crew coming in on another plane. Short staffed."
Pros: "The crew were anxious to please"
Cons: "Temperature was warm and we were given a smaller version of the cheese and cracker option. Accessing the entertainment wasn't easy and it was only available on ones own personal device. There were no screens anywhere"
Cons: "Everything the customer service reps were very rude and condescending. United is awful I'm not sure how they are still in business. The rep refused to help me because she was getting off in 10 mins."
Pros: "Very nice and flexible people and boarding was easy. Smooth flight."
Cons: "Very cramped tight seating and the stewardesses were a little lax. Also, the overhead speaker was not loud enough to hear if you're sitting by the window as I was. They have no control over turning it up and if there was something to do with safety I would be in trouble."
Pros: "Flight was on time and boarding was smooth"
Cons: "Full plane it felled very cramped."
Pros: "Blankets were provided"
Cons: "There wasn't any food or entrainment for me to rate."
Cons: "The worst part was the new seats are the smallest ever. I could not sit without my knees jammed into the seat in front of me, and on both legs, Ithe seats were narrow that the people next to me and I were overlapping shoulders - that was a first. Unless its flights in the future are significantly advantageous, United's losing my business. It's not worth saving a few bucks to me to be so uncomfortable."
Cons: "Round my credit card"
Pros: "The girls at boarding area watched Tucker while I had to go back to the security area to get bracelets that I had forgotten they treated him like a king"
Cons: "Could not get seat assignment 24 hrs in advance. Website said see desk. Phone call to United said pay more $ get a seat. Had to check in twice, once with bags...still no seat...wait in line again at gate for seat."
Pros: "We incountered quite a bit of turbulence. The captain kept us informed and did his very best to assure a smooth flight."
Cons: "Can't complain."
Cons: "was more than 4 hour delayed"
Pros: "Both flights were early, which was nice for a change."
Pros: "Both flights were early, which was nice for a change."
Cons: "No TV"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Cost of bags, not understanding person in terminal during boarding, plane seats; I keep saying we will NOT Frontier again. I must have been desperate."
Cons: "When 6:30 a.m. flight home was postponed until noon, we weren't able to make our connection and they didn't have another flight to get us home until the next day. Had to cancel and go with another airline."
Pros: "The price of tickets. Plane was on time and crew were excellent. The plane was new and seats were comfy."
Cons: "We did not know we needed to ask for our seats at the time of check in. A little confusing when we got to the gate. It turned out fine with our sitting in the seats for emergency. They were very comfortable."
Pros: "Flight duration"
Cons: "The delayed plane that they wouldn't tell me why it was delayed"
Pros: "price and flight time"
Cons: "not offered water, had to ask for it. better seatig was too expensive"
Pros: "Great price!"
Cons: "The seating is even tighter than normal coach, but my flight was only 2 hours so it was no big deal. I don't think I would take a longer flight with seating that tight."
Cons: "It's horrible I miss my flight and no body told me I have to there 2hrs ahead but when I get to the airport I couldn't find anybody any one from frontier agents , I end up asking people what happened they don't even know and I told they are done and left that's horrible no body there to help to book for the n cut flight . Their customer service phone number is a scam there no body to help you . Even I get a big discount with I will never ever fly with them ."
Pros: "I was impressed with the promptness of everyone on the crew...clearly a focus of the group!"
Cons: "The new crushed seating is so unpleasant and uncomfortable... never fly frontier again"
Pros: "i like on time"
Pros: "I sat in row 3 and had a lot of leg room. I am 6' 2" and usually have 0 leg room in most coach seating."
Cons: "There were no free snacks/soft drinks available."
Pros: "Our flight was delayed due to weather conditions, and I like how Frontier kept us informed."
Cons: "I didn't like the marketing for other services that was done on the P.A. system. The presentation was too long and exhausting. Especially for a red-eye flight that was an hour late! May I suggest referring customers to written materials instead?"
Pros: "A non Stop flight"
Cons: "$80 for one medium sized bag!!! That takes my deal of a flight from $200 to $280 yikes. Was only offered to purchase something on plane. Had to ask for water on an almost 5 hour flight."
Cons: "The staff was rude, line to check in luggage was huge because they were understaffed. If you don't get your bags checked in 45 minutes before your flight, you don't get on your flight. I had already been in line for 20 minutes and when I got the the desk at 40 minutes until my fllight, she said "too bad." Great Mother's Day for me sitting in the airport for 7 hours until the next flight out. Girl was horrible and totally rude. Never again."
Pros: "Bigger plan. Not over booked"
Cons: "Price of food"
Pros: "Reclining seat"
Cons: "Not having a seat in front to stretch legs out."
Pros: "Cheap price."
Cons: "Boarding process ineffecient. Pay for carry-on bag. Accept the seat you are assigned or pay to change. Should be renamed Nickel and Dime Airways."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Crew was great with a sense of humor."
Cons: "Seat didn't recline."
Pros: "The crew had a smile and were friendly."
Cons: "Look, it's a budget carrier. I get that. But I add a bag to my flight and my ticket is now what it would have cost to fly Southwest. I'm 6'4", and I *barely* fit into the seats. My knees touched the seat in front of me the whole flight. And the seats don't recline. To make everything just perfect, they lost my luggage on the flight home, and the lady who worked with Frontier who took all 15 (?) of us who had lost luggage over to make a claim said "this is normal for flights coming from Denver - it's a hub for Frontier, so luggage gets misplaced all the time." I'm sorry, that's not acceptable as an answer. I've never had a lost bag while flying with others, so that's what I will do from now on."
Pros: "Fast boarding. Crew is super friendly. Thats about it."
Cons: "Seats are increadebly uncomfortable. $3 for a soda, not even a bag of peanuts is offered here. No entertainmet, no movies, no wifi. Not even a magazine No tray where to put your food or ipad. no pillow, no blankets. $40 for a carry-on bag $20 to pick your own seat at checkin."
Cons: "Customer service counter in Seattle open very late"
Pros: "Gate agent was fabulous"
Cons: "Thisvwas my first flight with frontier. After being delayed 2 hours they cancelled our flight with no explanation. The re booking process was a nightmare. Frontier employees at the airport gave passengers completely different information than those at their customer service center. Lots of unhappy people."
Cons: "Nothing like arriving 30!min early and having to sit in the tarmac for 30min. Seats are terrible and don't lean back no wifi non in flight magazine"
Pros: "If you love being late and delayed, fly frontier. All the flights from Minneapolis to San Diego coming and going with the layover in Denver or delayed. They charge for everything at the gate which brings the price up to the competitors price which were direct flights instead of a layover. Never again. They charge you for the carry-on at the gate. It's sneaky And deceptive. Read the comments, it's also their standard practice."
Pros: "The crew was amicable and we did not crash"
Cons: "I dislike being nickle and dimed to death. Pay for the fuel and other overhead, then pay for the seat, then pay for carry on and checked baggage, ten for anything other than water. I understand that weight costs money. Why don't you charge people per pound? That would probably be unpopular with a lot of Americans so charge $x per pound for anything over "average". You are doing about the same with luggage. It feels like you are running a bait and switch operation."
Pros: "Boarding was easy and the flight attendants were nice. I paid for the extra room and was very confortable"
Cons: "WAITING FOR A PASSENGER TO BE REMOVED FOR BEING DISORDERLY (ALCOHOL ABUSE?)"
Pros: "The price of my ticket , the kindness of the crew ."
Cons: "The seats didn't recline , no outlets or WiFi. But it was ok"
Pros: "On time Good Price TSA Pre"
Cons: "Seats don't recline They were out of sofa I was willing to pay $3 for"
Cons: "I never review things but good God this airline is horrid. They charge $40 for carry-ons. They also have some of the meanest desk workers I've ever dealt with. Never going to fly them again. Spend the 60 bucks on a better airline because you're going to pay that in baggage fees on Frontier anyways."
Pros: "the only thing I liked was the cost."
Cons: "$40 for carry on bags..$30 to check in...Seriously???? This must be the way to make up for the cheep tickets...And what is the extra charge for a seat???? Never heard of this on any other airline. I have one more Frontier flight in afew weeks and this will be the last. I am going back to Alaska or Hawaiian..cost is more, but much better service. Cost for one coffee and snack $4.49...snacks $2.99 soft drinks $1.99 Is Frontier filling bankruptcy???? problems with management????"
Pros: "Cheap tickets"
Cons: "Extra charges every step of the way, seats were too cramped to sleep on the red eye flight."
Pros: "Only the price it was cheaper than other airlines"
Cons: "1. The security now a days has long lines and I get to the airport early but can't drop my luggage ,no one was at counter until before 2 hr for departure 2. Unlike other airlines no free snack during the flight 3. Charged for every single thing , seat , food , snack , carry on ...."
Cons: "the flight was delayed and then cancelled for equipment. no one from frontier addressed any passengers at the gate until after the flight crew had mentioned the cracked windshield and "what the hell are we going to do for 24 hours." eventually, after an hour and a half, the unhelpful staff gave out pre-printed snips of paper with outdated instructions on who to call and how to rebook or ask for a refund. after a fifteen minute phone call they said they'd cancel payment and that it would take 5-7 days, so I had to cancel my trip."
Pros: "Nothing. This is the first and last time I will fly frontier."
Cons: "Staff is rude, not considerate at all"
Pros: "Flight was just fine, no problems."
Cons: "Being hassled to pay extra for a couple inches more legroom is understandable, being charged for coffee is annoying, but stupid basics like a tray table and pocket for your reading material under the guise of 'only paying for what you use' is obnoxious."
Pros: "everything was great"
Pros: "Very friendly and helpful staff. Smiles all around the whole flight!"
Cons: "45$ for my carry which fit under my seat. Non reclining chairs. Incredibly turbulant last hour of the ride."
Pros: "I used to love flying Frontier—the airline with the cute animals on the tail of the planes. Now I call them the F word in airlines. If you want to fly Frontier, I want to make sure you’re forewarned. Their slogan is “A different kind of animal.” This animal is very cunning. And slightly savage. First, if you’ve been suckered into their $59 airfares, you already know what’s waiting for you. Wait. You actually want to fly back home? Well you’ll end up paying the same price as you would most any other airline. But wait…what’s this? Actually, their rates are about $100 cheaper than normal. What they don’t tell you is, they charge $30 for you to carry on your own baggage. I always thought it was ludicrous to charge me to carry my own bag onto a plane. Keep in mind that’s one way. So it’s $60 round trip. And that’s their discounted rate if you book online. It goes way up if you’re one of the unfortunates who wait till you’re at the kiosk to settle up with the Frontier Friskers. Oh, you say you want to actually choose your seat? That’s $13 minimum. For each leg of your trip. Don’t be surprised if they figure out a way to charge you for each leg of your body. That’s for a normal seat. If you don’t cough up the $13, they’ll randomly seat you wherever they want. I wouldn’t be surprised if they counted the lavatory as a possibility. So, that’s $60 for your own carry-on luggage. And a minimum $26 if you dare to choose your own cheap seat. Hmm. That $100 savings is looking rather slim right now. Speaking of slim, that describes their seats. And they don’t recline. You’re straight upright your whole trip. And the padding is about as comfortable as a cheap mattress in a cheap motel. The best way I can describe the feeling: Say you’re on Sesame Street and your job is to sit on the capital letter ‘L” for two hours. So while spending what feels like an eternity in L, maybe you’d like something to quench your thirst. That’s $1.99. Water? $1.99. A snack? $2.99. I’m surprised they don’t charge for toilet paper. By the square. (To be fair, I just learned that a cup of water is actually free. “For today,” said the flight attendant. “That could change.”) Nice Surprise: The people who work for Frontier are generally nice. But if this is the way Frontier treats their customers, how do they treat their employees? Do they make their mechanics buy their own tools? I wrote to the company to let them know how hugely disappointed I am with their changes. I never got the courtesy of a reply. I somehow like to imagine the CEO, in the true spirit of “no frills”, answering each customer letter by himself on an Olivetti typewriter from the 1970s. But I kind of doubt it. So there you have it. To be forewarned is to be forearmed. And if you have four arms, well, you might just fit their new slogan. Frontier Airlines: A whole different way to treat people like animals."
Cons: "Frontier's low fares which are deceptive. They charge you $60 for carrying your own bag! They charge you $13 per leg for the "privilege" of choosing your seat--even the normal seats. They charge you $1.99 for basic sodas offered by most every other airline for free. And they charge you $2.99 per snack. The seat are slim, terribly uncomfortable with virtually no padding and they don't recline! They don't respond when you write them."
Cons: "There was very little cushioning on the seats and they did not recline at all. They don't tell you during booking or at check in about the added fee for carry on luggage. Luckily I had none but about 15 people had to pay at the gate. The cost for your carry on and checked bag fee, you could of afforded a nicer airline that doesn't charge for that."
Pros: "Nothing i did not like nothing it was very uncomfortable i will never fly with Frontier again never"
Cons: "The staff has no costumer service."
Pros: "The crew was very professional. The plane was in good condition inside"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by more than two hours with no explanation, the flight was not listed on the departure board with the new time it would be departing and there was no one at the gate until right before we boarded so no one knew what was going on. Also the captain didn't communicate with is at all during the flight like arrival time, weather, etc"
Cons: "No explanation for flight delay. Rude staff. No ability to recline seat. Had to pay for everything, even water to drink."
Cons: "That it was delayed by 2 1/2 hours this is why we don't fly with this crappy airlines! Get it together frontier maybe you wouldn't be ranked as one of the worse airlines!"
Cons: "The flight was 2.5 hours late but none of us knew what was going on. We waited at the terminal without any real updates. Seats were incredibly uncomfortable and not spacious enough for adults. Also, $30 for a carry-on!? I was not aware of the extra charge until the day of, bad customer service."
Pros: "All though no food, short flight, nice price and great service and they are organized, I give a five star."
Cons: "The chair did not recline."
Pros: "people were friendly and it was on time."
Cons: "wish seats reclined."
Pros: "Smooth landing and nice Flight Attendants."
Cons: "Charged for carry-on. Charged $35 for checked bag. No gate agents at the check-in counter for one hour. Frontier considers it normal to provide bad customer service."
Cons: "Should at least offer water(for free) to passengers"
