Horrible service, I will never fly Frontier again. What a nightmare. I kept asking for a manager or supervisor and was told there was no one."

Flight back was cancelled and you are basically left to your own devices to get transportation on your own. Your refund is granted in 7 to 10 days but you need to front the cost for whatever last minute transportation you procure. Nightmare carrier if something goes wrong"

Why is flight delay information so slow to be communicated?"
Cons: "I didn't know Carry on bags had a fee until I got to the airport"
Cons: "Dealay, non comfortable, rude staff"
Cons: "Got a cheap flight but little did I know that that would be offset by being nickeled and dimed for seats, bags, and drinks. On top of that th plane was five hours late from its start point and the only information the gate agents would give (with an attitude) was the plane was coming. I called customer service to see if they were offering any restitution for this, and I was told that's not up to him. I will never never never fly frontier ever again."
Cons: "The flight attendants said I was on the plane when I in fact was not and they gave my seat away to someone (had the person act like they were me) now I am stuck in Philly for 2 days"
Pros: "They give you free water on the plane. That's it..."
Cons: "First off, our flight was delayed 5 hours. I understand because of weather. No big deal. But when it is supposed to leave at 4:15 and You tell everyone 5:15, and then at 5:15 tell everyone it'll be here at 6:15, then at 6:15 it went to 7:15 and then again 8:15. During this entire time, I kept asking for updates and the staff at Frontier seemed angry so many people kept asking....that's your job. Because of the long wait many people didn't eat dinner, JetBlu decided to get coffee and donuts for all of their passengers (they said it over the loud speaker), Frontier didn't give us anything. When the plane landed at 8:15, the slowness of the workers couldn't have been any worse. Loading the bags slow, cleaning the plane slow. Plane gets here at 8:15 and we don't take off until 9:30. You'd think we would get some type of snack or drink for this horrible wait time right? Water is free on frontier, but nothing else. And they stuck with that. NOTHING FREE! Not even a soda or bag of chips! My friend is 6 foot 4 and I'm not sure how they get away with the nonexistent leg room. His knees were smashed against the chair in front of him the entire time. Funny for me, sucked for him (or anyone tall). He asked to change seats to 1 of the 2 open seats we had seen with more leg room (near the side emergency exit). They said no unless he wants to pay $50 right there. In the middle of the flight. I have no words for it. Customer service was horrible, food was nonexistent, drinks were nonexistent, leg room was nonexistent. And that sums up how I'll never be using frontier ever again. Pay $50 more for a better plane service seriously."
Cons: "Carry on for $60?! Every other airline allows you to check a 50 lbs bag for $25 and bring 2(!!!) carry ons on the plane. Extremely mad about wasting that money. Never using your airline again as long as you're charging this ridiculous amount of money."
