Cons: "Easier status earnings"
Pros: "Everything went smoothly. Even though we were delayed for 10 mins We still managed to make it to NYC on time. The crew was friendly. The entertainment was exceptional. Really I have no complaints. I am so happy that they were able to accommodate a seat change at no charge as well."
Pros: "Overall Service!!!!"
Cons: "People Should Use The Overhead Bins Next To Their Seats, "Not Someone Else's", Thank You Very Much"
Cons: "they did not serve food in my section at all."
Cons: "dirty plane"
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Left on time. There were plenty of seats available"
Cons: "It was a bit cold. Bring a sweater"
Cons: "The connecting flight from Atlanta to NY was rescheduled for an hour and fifteen minutes later, boarding for the delayed flight started late, closed doors were another 20 minutes late, spend another hour or so waiting for confirmations, during which no AC is on because of a malfunction on the plane with the electricity unit. Due to rough air conditions, no in-flight service, or very limited one - and all of those are fine by me, and not the airlines' fault at all. But then, during all these unexpected conditions, I can't even use the in flight entertainment system as i use Bluetooth earphones, and to get earphones I have to buy them for 2$. To earn excellent service, inspite of all the delays, AC malfunction and unpleasantness all you had to do was give those 2$ earphones for free. I have another flight with SkyTeam coming up and I do hope it won't be as unpleasant as it is a much longer flight."

Pros: "Crew seemed nice. Plane itself was normal. Pilots seemed to know what they were doing."
Cons: "The things I didn't like were out of Delta's control: Some baby who screamed bloody murder whenever the captain said anything (so we couldn't hear the announcement about being stuck on the tarmac). Also, we got stuck on the tarmac for about 45 minutes. Obviously, it could have been much worse. But you know how it is when you just want to get home. And that baby."
Cons: "Arrived "early" only to sit on tarmac for over 45 minutes with no air , I'd rather leave later , get there at the right time and not sit in a plane with no air for extended time"
Pros: "Nice crew and good equipment"
Cons: "Bad bad food very disappointing"
Pros: "Overall the service was good. Boarding was very organized"
Cons: "There was a disturbance among 3 other passengers. A member of the crew was in the process of making arrangements to move my husband and myself to put some physical distance between these passengers. I issue is that at no time did he discuss this option with us. He was instituting the move when the male passenger stated he did not want to move"
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "The entertainment on the app, bring back the good old tv's on the flight"
Cons: "Our seats were assigned at the gate. We were literally seated in the last 2 rows of the plane. It was loud and tight and I would have NEVER booked those seats!! The whole fiasco was a complete turn off. And will make me reconsider booking through delta especially if it's a connecting flight!"
Cons: "No good food options just peanuts and drinks"
Pros: "Flight/seat, legroom uncomfortable. Idiot sitting next to me also had music loud and didn't turn it down when I asked. This was during taxing to take off. I was going to bring it to the attention of the crew after seatbelt sign was turned off, but once the flight was in the air, the noise of the plane/flight was so deafening that I could hear the music anymore, and neither would the crew if I had bought it to their attention."

Cons: "My seat was dirty and there were crumbs all around my row. My window had dirt and black marks on it. The plane ride itself was EXTREMLY bumpy."
Pros: "Cheap flight"
Cons: "Poor service; carry on bag you had to buy; email saying that we had to show up 2+ hours before the flight, which meant I had to be at airport at 3:30 AM, for a 6:30 AM domestic flight; arrive 1 hr late into NY; misleading marketing about costs of flight"
Pros: "What's the point of charging cheap fares if your seating will suck, you will chrage me FOR ME TO CARRY MY OWN BAG and on top not even a soda is free??? Nothing to eat on the plane unless I am ok with Oreos and Beef jerky? Who told the CEO that this is a good strategy to get people to come back to it... NEVER AGAIN!"
Pros: "That the flight was cheap"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable Felt like a bus Too much time devoted to instructions by flight attendants and information about points for Frontier. There are so many hidden fees that does not really make the flight cheap. There is no ability to recline during the flight."

Pros: "Generally on time flight for departure; return flight arrived a bit earlier then planned; crew was very good! Captain Kirk had skills with his landing."

Cons: "The flight was cancelled , the worst airline ever , im done with them"
Cons: "literally the worst airline experience I've ever had. I will never fly them again."
Pros: "I'll repeat"
Pros: "Hated the entire experience!"
Cons: "Flying with Frontier had to be one of the most traumatic experiences of my life. I arrived at the airport to find that they could not check me in when in fact my original Atlanta to New York plane had not left. The agent lied and made it seem like the plane left so I purchased a $99 ticket to Atlanta to Trenton, NJ, a local airport that was 1 hour and 46 minutes away from New York. I purchased the ticket and went to the LGA gate just in case and called the 801 number to be rebooked back on my original flight. The rep on the phone shared I would not be charged the $99 but today, 1/6/17 the charge posted on my credit card. I had to go to Trenton, NJ, send $33 for the NJ Transit, plus 2 Uber rides totaling $53."
Pros: "It wasn't over sold or a full flight and there wasn't time wasted boarding."
Cons: "Baggage fees and we hit turbulence during take off and the pilot never made an announcement. It was stormy in ATL so you'd like to be warned. The flight attendant eventually made an announcement after there were screams as the plane dipped suddenly creating a roller coaster drop effect. Also the seats were impossible to get comfortable in, the arm rests too small and they didn't go up so although no one was next to me I was trapped in my seat. Also because I was in an exit row it didn't recline. Oh and the reading lights are aggressive. I wish I'd packed an eye mask to block out that light and the light from the exit sign. Thankfully it was a short flight. The airfare is cheap but after you pay all the fees you might as well book on a more comfortable airline."
Pros: "Everyone was super nice."
Cons: "The seats were to straight with no cushions. There was no way to adjust the seats."
Pros: "I liked the fact that the stewardess apologized after she realized that she assumed wrong."
Cons: "A stewardess yelled to get my dad off the plane because he was "drunk". This was not the case, he is on medication and needed to take it. I was very hurt and embarrassed because I was already concerned for my dad and there were many people on the plane. It was disappointing."
Pros: "That I was greeted that's it"
Cons: "Uncomfortable flight seats and tables are unmaintained"
Pros: "I didn't like it all I was booked for a job in NYC which I'm late getting to the staff was really rude"
Pros: "comfortable flight"
Cons: "The lack of providing free refreshments and too small of a pull tray"
Pros: "Very comfortable flight"
Cons: "Had to choose my seat and pay for it"
Pros: "We didn't crash."
Cons: "Look for another airline.. they are crooks"
Pros: "Quick and to the point. No messing around. Friendly workers."
Cons: "Paying for the bags."
Cons: "There was no clearly stated in the online booking instructions that a carry-on baggage is not included in the ticket total price. It happened to be a very unpleasant surprise during the check in."
Pros: "Quick boarding/deboarding, fast flight. Friendly and helpful crew."
Cons: "Cheap feeling seats, get what you pay for, a budget flight. No amenities beyond basics. Also, every seat is 'premium' and costs above your ticket value. Just tell me how much the flight will be up front, or provide a range. $7 for back seats, up to $30 for front seats. Also, do your homework. Carry-ons cost $30 each way."
Pros: "That I didn't miss my flight"
Cons: "The lady at the counter was very nasty not helpful at all. Then the plane took off a hour late..."
Pros: "Nice crew handled a medical emergency on the flight with compassion and skills."
Cons: "Horrible and cramped charged extra for everything possible. bag checked, bag stowed, drinks... awful wait.. awful flight with pilot and crew hawking merchandise and a steward explaining that he needed out of his bad career choice. NEVER fly Frontier. Learned my lesson. Stay away from kayak!"
Cons: "Was never told you had to pay for bags either $30 to check and $40 to carry on!!!! I wouy have chosen another airline!!!!"
Cons: "Comfort, they let standby passengers board and then took them off again once regular passengers showed up"
Pros: "Nothing. They did half their job."
Cons: "Their ticket counter at LGA is hardly ever open and when it is their employees are rude. They tried to charge me $410 to change a flight i originally paid $210 for. I tried to move it one day. Also, get ready for a 30 min sales pitch for their credit card. Talk about a captive audience. Garbage airline. Do not use."
Cons: "Late boarding and take off"

Cons: "We were stuck at the airport for over 8 hours. Nobody gave us any information for a while. Nobody gave us any voucher for food or anything. I missed a really important event because I was stuck at the airport."
Pros: "Knowing up front before booking you will pay for everything. In the end the low price issn't really that low once you pay for everything else."
Pros: "Didnt like anything"
Cons: "It was a more then little shocking hearing at the gate that I'd have to pay $60 before boarding for my bags."
Pros: "I need and want a refund."

Cons: "I paid $40 for a carryon bag that was not verified when boarding. In essence it was a waste of money."
Cons: "Charge me 65 for 1 bag"
Pros: "I liked that i made it to my destination."
Cons: "I do not like that the website does not clearly state that a backpack is a personal item. But here is the con, they say pay now for the bag or pay more at the airport! So of course you pay. On my return and upon picking up my boarding ticket i asked about my backpack and she told me it was a personal item and that it is free. She handed me a ready made slip of paper to call for a refund and said she would make a note in the system to this effect. When i called for my $80 refund i was told well the note in the system only mentioned your return flight so we will only return for that flight. Ok..ok. You see where im going with this. This is a class action lawsuit in the making."
Cons: "TSA check in"

Pros: "People. Where nice."
Cons: "Under carage noisy."
Cons: "i had to pay my on board luggage, the chair doesn't reclinate, no food, no intertainment and the price was not that cheap to justify all of these down sides"
Cons: "find fault with each pound if the customer exceeds the weight of the luggage 2 pound the flesh once you have a lot of money and when my wife and l flew from New York to Dallas and we had two small suitcases (roller) the employee ran after us and said that they should be put into the luggage and we said that we have to pay $100 when other companies do not to the same ,these roller were tested for patterns and they have stood the but she told us that you still need to pay a surrender and FLHN on the plane, l saw those rollers and missed the plane, they wewre even slinghtly thicket"
