                                          My son had passed away and the staff upon my entering the airport at Frontier noticed my tears and my heart breaking, your staff took me under her angel wings and helped me all the way. Thank you

                                          Good amount of leg room and complimentary snack

                                          Check in on line: The program did not know I already had paid for and chosen seats and baggage. The continued prompts to buy buy buy was a nuisance.

                                          Most unfriendly and rude female flight attendant I have ever come across

                                          Oct 13, 2019

                                          They departed 26 minutes EARLY, missed flight

                                          Jul 8, 2019

                                          A very rude, inconsiderate lady with a "service animal" was seated across the aisle from me. Her dog was in the aisle most of the flight and the crew did not ask her to move it. The dog clearly was not a service animal, and was loud and not clean. It made the flight very unpleasant

                                          Jul 8, 2019

                                          Uncooperative with cancelled flight. Multiple day stay with no assistance financial or otherwise with cancelled flight.

                                          Delays and sudden cancellation of flight.

                                          This is the last time I fly United on an Economy Fare. Very disappointed!

                                          You have to pay for seat selection, carry on luggage, checked in luggage, soda, juice and even water. The seats in the plane do not recline, the table is tiny and their flights are always delayed! They also inform you too late that your flight is going to be delayed. They could have given out complimentary drinks for having a delayed flight back and forth but no, they would charge you for everything! If walking into the plane could be charged as well I’m pretty sure you’d have to pay for that one too. Never again!

                                          Aug 26, 2018

                                          Flight cancelled for maintenance. Initial refusal to provide vouchers then slow distribution. Slow refund of airfare and no refund of fees like baggage and seat reservation.
