Pros: "Boarding was smooth"
Cons: "Awful flight attendant that was rude in not passing a snack to us and then not handing a bottle of water to me when snacks were being stroked to the passengers. When asking her why she didn't provide us a snack she said that this is a plane and when the captain says we have to land that she doesn't have to pass out snacks. The interesting thing is that all the other passengers around us receive snacks and bottled water except us. When we were leaving the plane after it landed my mom had to stay behind while I went to the front of the plane a good wheelchair assistance. The same stewardess said why did your son leave you and my mother had to correct her and say that he went to the front to get wheelchair assistance. The lady was very rude and didn't know proper manners."
Cons: "Didn’t make the flight due to delay and late arrival! No help getting seats on a later flight or next morning."
Pros: "Delta personnel at DTW knew they were overwhelmed and did everything they could to mitigate the problems."

Pros: "Got upgraded to comfort class it was comfy"

Pros: "Great friendly crew"
Cons: "Seats are getting smaller, expensive food"
Cons: "The boarding process is quite confusing with all the different categories of people prior to the actual listed "zone" boarding. As an example, if you have a "Zone 2" boarding pass, you think you will be second to board when in reality that means you are second to last to board. After those who need extra time, those with small children, active military, premier, whatever.... all that covers about 2/3 of the passengers. Then of course there's all the stepping over those who already boarded which seems to slow the process overall. It would be better to ask these questions when making your reservation. Then, the zones would be appropriate based on how you made your reservation to begin with."
Pros: "Wow! One of the passengers on the plane looked exactly like Anne Coulter!!!"
Pros: "Got exit seats with extra leg room at no charge . Flight was quick and crew was very accomadating and friendly. Very good at providing updates and delays"
Cons: "It was it little confusing that I booked with AeroMexico but it was really a Delta flight."
Cons: "My return portion of my flight was canceled and had to purchase a new ticket. I would like a full refund of my expenses."
Cons: "luggage did not arrive same time with me and not the same airport"
Pros: "I liked that flight time was shorter than expected"
Cons: "no screens, only wify entertainment, app is working only with ios and android. seats don't have much leg room, and not very comfortable. i paid for extra luggage, and they were strict about the weight(had to take any items out of the bag, even that i had one large bag, and one small bag(2nd bag was underweight)"
Pros: "Friendliness, spirit, organization of crew."
Cons: "The obvious- no leg room, no food"
Cons: "Took forever to board and get off the plan."
Pros: "Crew very nice"
Pros: "LGA caused massive delays due to construction."
Cons: "Nice airplane with good seats and legroom"
Pros: "I was able to get a gluten free snack"
Cons: "Tried to get an upgrade at the gate and they said our ticket wouldn't allow it."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and attentive, and the flights were punctual. I was assigned a good seat, and I appreciated the meal, as i was going to arrive in Mexico very late. I also enjoyed the entertainment options."
Cons: "I really have no negative comments."
Pros: "all flights were right on time. service was excellent. crew was very friendly. Comfort+ seating was excellent very comfortable"
Pros: "We stood on the ground due to weather, which had nothing to do with the airline itself. Keeping this from jading my point of view, the airline stood within the standard of what is expected of a good trip. Food was good, and the choice of movies, shows, and games helped the time pass. Staff was friendly, and checked bags were ready rather quickly."
Cons: "The number of updates telling us we are going nowhere, was a bit excessive."
Pros: "Our plane had mechanical issue with a parking brake which they left us know about once we loaded the plane. Unfortunately it was going to take to long so they switched us to another plane."
Cons: "Airlines in general need to enforce the carry on luggage rules. If it doesn't match the dimensions for the carry on specks then make the people Check it. Don't let it go. If I paid for a seat and I'm allowed two carry ons then there should be room for them. Don't ask people to check bags because of a full plane. The crew should have there own place to store their belongings, not where the passengers do and take their space. The life rafts need to be easy to get to but again should take up a spot a passenger has paid for their luggage to go. If that is the only space for these items then don't allow passengers to bring two items if in those seats or on the whole plane. It's really disappointing when your told you may have to check your bag because there's not enough room."
Pros: "Delta does a great job overall. We used free skymiles from Amex and it was very much appreciated."
Cons: "Not enough leg room! BS!"
Cons: "Rough flight and landing."
Pros: "Left on time and got in early"
Pros: "Just over 2hrs only. Crew was very friendly."
Cons: "A bit of turbulence due to weather (no fault of the airlines)."
Pros: "The crew was fine, friendly enough, although I was incredibly disappointed that they didn't force people to wear their masks as they boarded. They also didn't enforce masks over noses--rendering masks useless."
Cons: "The flight was completely full. And people weren't wearing masks as they boarded, and the flight attendants did nothing about that. Also, there was no distancing IN the airport during boarding. It's NOT DIFFICULT to put tape marks on the ground to ensure physical distancing. It is THEIR responsibility to make sure the process is safe, since half of the people seem to not care about distancing (or mask wearing). I'm incredibly disappointed and I will be flying Southwest for the time being: I hear they're better at enforcing distancing."
Cons: "AA needs to standardize their WiFi. Sometimes it is boingo, GoGo, or Panasonic or something other. Each has a different way of logging in. It is way too complicated. Sometimes you can watch on the iPad in a browser, other times you need a flash player or the AA app. Have a common way of at least accessing the internet, otherwise it can take 10 minutes to log in if switching from a GoGo yo Panasonic service. It is just too difficult and buggy. I am glad I don’t actually pay for the internet."
Cons: "Truth is they practice in like cattle. I ended up sitting next to a ginormous woman. It was a very uncomfortable flight from DC to Charleston. Come on American you're better than that quit using such small planes!"
Pros: "Flight was fast and professional."
Pros: "The seat was So so"
Cons: "My food was cold had to send it back"
Cons: "No reason to delay a 55 minute flight to make it over 4 hours just for rain. Absolutely ridiculous and I will be calling and complaining to be compensated for my time."
Pros: "Crew was great! Flight was smooth and on time!"
Cons: "Air conditioning!!!"
Pros: "Nice quick flight."
Cons: "Plane was really small. So we’re the seats."
Cons: "This was a terrible flight. Had a connection that was delayed several times and eventually cancelled without explanation. I was traveling for my best friend's wedding and they did not work with me to try to get me on the next flight. I had to book another flight from another airline."
Cons: "Thank you"
Cons: "Leaving on time"
Cons: "Nothing you could do, it was a maintenance issue."
Cons: "More space for carry on luggage"
Pros: "EAsy boarding"
Pros: "Best leg room last leg."
Cons: "Nothing specific."
Pros: "Very attentive first class stewardess. Loved the comfort of the seats and extra legroom in first class."
Cons: "Wish wii was free. At least for first class."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly. The flight landed early."
Cons: "Seat back in economy was uncomfortable for a shorter person. The head rest pushed my head so far forward that my back and neck were curved so much it caused upper back pain."
Pros: "Not a challenging process from beginning to end."
Cons: "The 2 hour delay due to the ground crew not having it together, this reason coming from the pilot. Flight attendant was complaining more than any of us passages. Even though 85% of us missed our connecting flights. After boarding the plane, the smell of the restroom, we all had to deplane."
Cons: "Aircraft seating was terrible! Seats were way too close together. Seats were uncomfortable. Couldn’t even get an entire soda from the attendant. Made me remember why I dislike flying."
Pros: "Flt on time & comfortable. Crew outstanding!!"
Pros: "Good free mobile entertainment"
Cons: "Plane was unbelievably hot the entire flight. Air vents did not cool the plane at all. We were all sweating the entire time."
Pros: "On time departure and arrival."
Cons: "Boarding lounge and plane were hot. No gluten-free options for snacks. At least I’d had a long layover where I could get a decent meal."
Cons: "AA lost put my checked baggage onto a different flight during my layover in Philly to my final destination. After losing my baggage, it took them over 24 hours to return it to me, telling me that it would only be "another hour" till they would deliver it to my house. No airline is perfect, but I don't like being lied to about my baggage not being transferred properly to my final flight, nor do appreciate how they kept giving me vague estimates and round-a-bout answers about my checked bag which they lost in the first place. If I can help it, I will never fly with American Airlines again; they have lost my business!"
Pros: "The amount of things to keep you entertained for the long flight"
Cons: "I had to have my seat up the entire route so that made a very uncomfortable flight was never able to really rest"
Pros: "Service was fine and the crew members were professional. Everything you would expect in a standard flight"
Cons: "Price tag to travel within the country was more expensive than transatlantic flights despite leaving from a major hub. Wouldn’t allow carry lbs either. If you’re going to fly basic economy, might as well just do spirit and save several hundred dollars."
Pros: "Got an option to upgrade to first class and it wasnt expensive either, my first time flying first class"
Cons: "the AA flight arriving to Charlotte experienced a door malfunction that delayed deplaning by 15 minutes. Not a big deal unless you had a close connection to begin with. Result was a dead sprint to Charleston gate where no attempt to hold the plane for those passengers. Also, a black, middle-aged woman with short hair working the ticket counter had the personality of a piece of cardboard with zero responsiveness. AA should reconsider who it places to interact with the general public."
Cons: "Staff were so rude"
Cons: "Seat 20f It was very uncomfortable and freezing My legs were sore after the journey. Besides until 30 seconds before actual boarding time the members didn't inform about the delay. Everybody had formed lines and we see people getting out only then."
Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "Small, loud plane with cramped seats. No hot beverage service."
Cons: "Tsa is very unorganized and extremely rude."
Pros: "Excellent entertainment system, comfortable seating, decent refreshment service for such a short trip."
Cons: "The flight didn't board until an hour and a half after the original scheduled time, and despite boarding quickly, we didn't take off for even longer. Because of the long wait, it would have been nice to have been offered a snack in addition to the beverage that was served during the flight."
Pros: "Great staff. Decent food. Great entertainment selection"
Cons: "Boarding process was a bit messy"
Cons: "AA gate attendant assigned two of us to the same seat."
Cons: "We sat on the runway for 3.5 hours while the crew cleaned up a fuel spill and we waited for a different co-pilot."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "No gluten free food available"
Cons: "customs in miami is aweful. long waits. its a long maze to get back to the domestic terminal as well."
Cons: "Our flight was so late. I actually missed the original time. Ran thought TSA, sprinted to the gate and then... waited for slightly over an eternity. But honestly, the great part of AA is the super small seats, really whi fits in these seads. Thank you. I'm 4-5."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable and big enough for large people. That crew and flight were on time and pleasant."
Cons: "I called to change my flight and the charge was outrageous. I fly often and other airlines have made changes with low fees. The the man on the phone with me was hard to understand because of his accent and was rude."
Pros: "Short duration"
Cons: "Didnt have a seat assignment for me. Told me the flight was overbooked... paid long in advance. Disappointing, finally finally found a seat."
Pros: "The service AA provides is very constant in time and that is good"
Cons: "Chairs could have more comfort"
Pros: "American Airline flight was on time, actually, early departure and early arrival. Crew was friendly and helpful, and I arrived safely. There was room overhead for my carry-on. And I got a great deal thanks to Kayak."
Pros: "Friendly and prompt service."
Cons: "The seats are TOO DAMN SMALL!!!!"
Pros: "Once seated flight was pleasant & arrived to our destination 20 min early."
Cons: "The flight attendants could have been more attentive to boarding customers. They were serving drinks to first class, talking in the aisles, did not move when you were trying to get in your seat. Too much commotion going on while boarding and it became frustrating."
Pros: "They showed American ninja warrior."
Cons: "Everything. The flight was delayed greatly even though the plane got to Chicago only slightly late. Then they make us board and just sit in the plane for an hour. Then finally we start moving, the plane is uncomfortably hot even with the air blowing on me, the flight attendants look like they hate their life, it was honestly horrible and I will never fly with American Airlines EVER again."
Cons: "The flight never happened, so all in all, things we're pretty terrible!"
Pros: "Crew was ok, did their best considering the circumstances, but even they were getting aggravated and were short with the passengers near the end."
Cons: "The Washington airport is horrible. The gate we left from was not a gate but a series of doors that buses came to. This wouldn't be so bad if they were able to handle it in an orderly way, but the airport showed complete incompetence in organizing anything and there were people everywhere trying to find the right door which kept changing on them, and the times kept changing...it was a mess. Then, when we finally got on the plane and were about to take off, the air traffic control tower called and said that their flight path was incorrect and to not take off...but didn't give them a new flight path for nearly two hours as we sat on the runway. Nationalize the airports in DC, fire the whole lot and start fresh, I'd say."
Pros: "Crew was fun. Didn't get to finish movie because no wifi from den to mtj"
Pros: "Flight was very late landing and we missed our connecting flight. As a result had to get a rental car in order to connect with our friends. Also it was a baby crying nonstop for the first half of the flight."
Cons: "Better timing on the flight connections."
Cons: "Changed gates 4 times and walked all over the C terminal. Waited for 2 hours on the plane at the jetway for the captain to arrive (with no water). Finally offered 1 small cup of water and 1 bag of pretzels (at 8pm)."
Cons: "We could have made our connecting flight. And then our"
Cons: "Flight was late and missed connection. had to stay overnight"
Cons: "Airport staff rudest I’ve ever seen. Terminals extremely close together and over crowded."
Cons: "It seems flights are always delayed or cancelled out of Chicago. My least favorite airport"
Pros: "The flight from BHM to DEN (my connection) was re-routed due to poor weather in DEN. What was supposed to be a 3-hr flight, turned into a 5-hr flight. Thank goodness my layover was originally 3.5 hrs, so that extra time in the air cut into that wait time at the airport, but at least waiting at the airport would allow me to move around and stretch my legs, and not be stuck in THE tiniest plane seat I've ever experienced."
Cons: "Being stuck on the plane for 2 hours longer than the original flight time of 3 hours made my legs ache. The seats were SO incredibly tiny, and there is very little room in the pocket on the back of the seat in front of you. You can't fit a water bottle, and barely my tiny purse or e-reader device. Please do away with these super-tiny seats."
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "United flew late and we had to RUN to new gate for connecting flight. Old small jet. No phones could be on. Odd folks drug their dog on board and were asked to put it on the floor. ... oh no! !!!!"
Pros: "On time. Very nice flight attendants."
Cons: "They switched my preselected seat, without my permission, and gave it to a flight attendant that was traveling. I dont understand why she couldn't sit one row behind my preferred seat."
Cons: "Had to download the United app to watch in flight movies. Then it didn't even work. The only thing that would play were the trailers."
Cons: "The Asian style snack mix was absolutely disgusting. I was expecting a thing of pretzels or peanuts, not a ball of wasabi"
Pros: "Good on-phone customer service to make flight accommodations since we missed our connecting flight out of Denver"
Cons: "Insufficient and/or incomplete communication from pilot as to the nature of the delay (unhooked cable), how it was being addressed (the ONLY person that could hook the cable was still at home; then when he did arrive, he was assigned to fix another airplane before ours), and what we, as passengers, could do to help ourselves (United staff was reviewing connections, but then no one ever came back to relay information about that). We missed our connecting flight (we finally departed 15 minutes before our connecting flight left Denver); I had to call customer service while still sitting on the plane, and we were placed on a connecting flight out of Denver that left 4 hours AFTER we should have landed at our final destination. What should have been 9 hours of total travel time (including driving to and from airport, security checks, customs, etc.) turned into 20 hours, resulting in a lost 1st day of our trip."
Cons: "I had a man sit next to me who was in the wrong seat but didn't move. He told the girl to keep his seat and he would stay next to me. He was so big he was in my space and had didn't make any effort to try not to spill over in my area. I had to put a magazine next to my thigh because his body was so hot it was damp! I hated the entire trip. I was cramped up and extremely uncomfortable. This is simply unacceptable to have this happen because huge people can't fit in one seat. I want these obese people to be required to purchase 2 seats because they take mine."
Pros: "The crew was great and the pilot kept us informed the whole trip."
Cons: "The seats are extremely uncomfortable and there s no room to move. The seat in front of you is so close that watching the TV is uncomfortable. The seat pockets have no room for anything - a bottle of water doesn't even fit in them."
Pros: "Free carryon"
Cons: "Couldn't figure out wifi"
Pros: "Boarding , good communication"
Cons: "Crying baby + woman behind me non stop talking very loud during flight"
Pros: "I am slow walking due to health issues. Coming from Kansas City to Chicago was a problem. My daughter who was with me is physically handicapped. There was no transportation to assist us to get from one terminal to another one when we arrived. Thank goodness we had a two and one-half hour overlay. Going home was a different story. Two wonderful gentleman met us as we disembarked and speedily got us to our flight. We only had 30 minutes and they made sure we were there. Issac and the other man are to be commended!"
Cons: "The fact that no one was there to assist us with transportation."
Cons: "Flight was at 0700. Delayed until 0831 then 0900. Then we were taxi-ing for an hour. Didn't depart until a little after 1000."
Cons: "The cabin smelled like an unflushed toilet. That should be enough!!!"
Cons: "Sat in plane on runway for an hour"
Pros: "Ease of purchasing ticket online"
Cons: "The $230 change fee for a ticket that cost me $70. No recourse but to lose the money completely."
Pros: "The seamless service from reservation to arrival at destination"
Cons: "Would have appreciated a lower fair"
Pros: "On time."
Pros: "United continues to disappoint. I'm turning in my miles membership. I've tried to be loyal but enough is enough"
Pros: "I arrived two hours early to the airport as specified and arrived to find out my flight was delayed by over four hours. So my daughter and I had to sit in the airport for over six hours."
Pros: "In these past six months my family and I have been back and forth on the same route and in four occations this flight as been delayed. My 70 year old aunt lost her other flight in Houston and had to wait 12 more hours overnight wihtout food because all the restaurants were already closed. In our case were a party of five and with 1hr 40min connection. We had to run to the other side of the airport to the international gates not knowing if we lost the flight because when we arrived to Houston the second flight was already boarding. Luckly the flight attendants let us out first before the other passengers and barely made it."
Pros: "From Salt Lake to Houston, there was a really rude flight attendant, a man. Other than that, my entire flight experience was good. They didn't have Dr. Pepper."
Pros: "Flight got cancelled after a 10 hr delay. No compensation offered. Told us too bad so sad. Pushed us off onto American and acted like they were doing us us a favor. Today was the day I swore my allegiance to Southwest Airlines. I don't care if you gave me a lifetime supply of flights and the CEO, your business model pales in comparison to that airline. Disgusted is the only word I can use to describe my experience. Save the hassle, use southwest even if it costs more."
Cons: "Everything. Worst travel day ever"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled and no reasonable accommodations when I asked about a month ago to cancel and was told non-refundable or additional charges for changes"
Cons: "It was terrible. It was ridiculously hot and the plane smelled like pee. It was the worst flight experience my fiancé and I have ever taken. Shameful condition and experience."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "I payed for my flight about a month prior and for some reason still did not have a guaranteed seat on the flight and almost got left behind"
Cons: "Both domestic flights got cancelled. I lost the first day of my vacation and had to miss an extra day of work on the way home."
Pros: "It was ok."
Cons: "They lost my husbands luggage from Morgantown to Charleston and we sat for about 10 minutes with no gate in Charleston when we landed!"
Cons: "The Gate was changed several times with very poor announcement. Entertainment is N/A on these type of flights."
Pros: "Loved that it was an empty flight"
Cons: "The cabin was very hot"
Pros: "Boarded on time. Arrived on time. Fast boarding"
Cons: "A little turbulent"
Cons: "Plane too small to support carry-on suitcases, so everyone had to check them gate side and then wait for them right outside plane. All the hassle of carry-on (carry belongings through airport) without the perk (having belongings available during flight)."
Pros: "Thank you for moving me to another flight when mine was cancelled I appreciate that."
Cons: "Movies were not accessible - captions were too small. Movie also froze a few times or became jerky. Not sure whether or not it was your issue or the phone itself."
Cons: "Tiny space, no access to electricity"
Cons: "My flight was delayed by 3 hours which caused me to miss my connecting flight...needless to say I had to stay at the airport for 16 hours for another flight on another airlines"
Pros: "I liked that it got me to my destination"
Cons: "No entertainment, really uncomfortable, arm rest don't go up, planes are not cleaned from previous passengers, flight attendants hardly smile and don't interact as much as other airlines, delayed flights every time I fly with United."
Pros: "That it was short"
Cons: "Boarding a small plane on a cold rainy day by waking along the tarmac out to the plane. umbrellas are wet and wind insures passengers are wet before getting on board. A experience I hope to not relive. Oh drop the Asian "Style" snack and bring back peanuts"
Cons: "Had an extended overlay because of an overlap booking with our pilot. He was on another plane that wasn't due to come in until two hours later."
Cons: "United botched my boarding passes at security so I had to run back and get the correct one, catching my bags to see if they were going to the right place"
Pros: "Everything went smooth and on time"
Cons: "The seats were even smaller than the last flight. The space was very crammed and was too tight and made the flight uncomfortable."
Pros: "Boarding was a little challenging. Had issues with a bad check-in kiosk, but the staff handled well and got on my flight. Small plane,but a short flight."
Cons: "Great flight, no complaints, intend to use this airline whenever possible from now on!!!"
Pros: "It was very smooth and relaxing"
Cons: "On time schedule always a good thing."
Cons: "On time. I do realize it was out of your control.inclement weather."
Pros: "Convenient airport."
Cons: "Left 4 hours late."
Cons: "Not having to load from tarmac, however I am sure that will be resolved when a gate is available"
Pros: "I got to my destination."
Cons: "Flight comfort. Lavatory smells really bad. Too many delays."
Pros: "Just a smooth flight and made it in less time than expected!"
Cons: "2 hour delay. Air on plane didn’t work. Exit off plane took forever with engines off on hot tarmac"
Cons: "The plane had technical difficulties and they have delayed us 5 times when the airline should have gotten a new plane for all of us."
Pros: "The crew and the seating was fine"
Cons: "My flight was delayed both times going and coming to Pensacola, the first flight on my way to Pensacola was delayed 4 times and cancelled, but they decided after about five minutes to take us after a four hour delay."
Cons: "Plane so hot inside until in air. No h2O. Numerous people knocking their heads and tripping up or down on two seater side of plane."
Cons: "Price was very misleading - i didn't realize I would be paying an additional $100 at the airport for a carry on bag"
Pros: "Easy way, and inexpensive way, to go visit my friend in Tampa"
Cons: "Seats didn't recline at all. I like to sleep on flights. Had to do so in an upright position"
Cons: "Should have a little snack with the water"
Pros: "The flight was one way"
Cons: "The flight was warm and very little space"
Pros: "Very attentive and followed through with requests!"
Cons: "No soda, juice or cookies offered. Carolyn Gaston"
Cons: "Never again. I actually got food poisoning while in Orlando and missed my return flight, and I was so grateful to be sick. I'm honestly surprised that old tiny plane made it to Orlando in one piece. We had a preacher onboard and we had him praying the whole time cause the plane would suddenly drop in altitude, or shake, and it made this really loud buzzing sound the entire time. We had to yell to talk to the person next to us cause it was so noisy. I wasn't expecting a whole lot cause it's not like I bought first class or anything, but I'm genuinely trying to repress the memories of this experience. As for the rest of the rating choices, there was no food. Just a tiny water bottle. No entertainment, unless you count begging to live through the journey."
Pros: "Silver provided $10 meal voucher and overnight stay at Hampton Inn when flight was cancelled due to a maintenance issue with the plane. Agents were helpful and efficient in processing re-booking arrangements."

Cons: "Two hour delay, hot, flight attendant looked hung over or very distraught, bad communication with the crew."

Pros: "Quick and efficient."
Cons: "Big man in a small plane is uncomfortable."
Pros: "Opportunity to fly direct to and from Pensacola."
Cons: "What's the point of overhead compartments, if carry-on that is in addition to a carrying bag must be stowed, and overhead compartment sits empty?"
Pros: "My flight got me from Pensacola to Tampa on time and with efficiency. Nothing more, nothless."
Pros: "Once in the air the flight was smooth and we were able to make up a little of the time delayed from boarding."
Cons: "Flight was initially delayed 30 min due to late arrival of plane from previous flight . Reason unknown. Then apparently the folding stairs from inside the plane we not working correctly and maintenance had to be called in. The repair guy worked on it for about 15 min and got the stairs to fold down. Then we waited another 30-45 min for someone to "sign off" on the repair that was done to the stairs. Well apparently that never happened, because they eventually lifted the stairs back into the plane and rolled up a ramp to the plane for passengers to enter, which had been sitting on the tarmac by the plane the entire time. So we're all wondering if they could just use the ramp instead of the stairs, why the HELL didn't they do that in the first place??? It would have saved us 40-50 minutes in extra delays !!!"
Pros: "I had the row to myself and the flight was short"
Cons: "The flight from PNS to MCO got delayed 3 hours"
Pros: "Overall courtesy of check in,boarding,and bag attendant. Smooth flight! Thanks"
Pros: "I got home My bag got there with me"
Cons: "Every flight is late - coming and going Third world service and appearance. You are a low cost airline for areas in Florida with no air service The customer folks have little or no training and look unprofessional. It does not take much to dress the part and not chew gum. Web site check in needs help"
Cons: "Late leaving Uncomfortable Seats Cold Cabin Noisy Vibration of the plane Not even beverage service The worst clear-air routine flight i have experienced in hundreds of thousands of miles flying. I will not do it again!!"
Cons: "The plane had to make an emergency landing in Tallahassee and then getting to my final destination was horrible because Silver airways couldn't get a plane to get us to Orlando."
Pros: "On time, friendly crew, check in very easy, non-stop flight"
Cons: "Tight quarters, no snack, hard to hear announcements, more expensive than expected"
Pros: "very friendly staff thank you"
Cons: "Very noisy flight old old plan plane Happy new year"
Pros: "Love Silver Airlines!"
Pros: "Crew and pilot great"
Cons: "Sweating entire time! Engine extremely loud old plane! If you have a headache dont board plane! Revolving throbbing noises from engine!"
Cons: "Flight was canceled. They sent me to a hotel that was fully booked. I went back to get into a hotel had room and no one was there to help. I ended up paying for my own hotel room. I went to get on my 8am flight and they pushed it back until noon. I eventually had to buy a flight with Delta to get to Orlando in time for my football game."
Pros: "Convenient non-stop flight to Orlando."
Cons: "Customer service in Pensacola was the worst. Took 30 minutes to check in and there were only two people ahead of me! The stewardess was noticeably unfriendly and borderline rude to many of the passengers. The experience in Orlando was 180 degrees different....they did a great job."
Pros: "Great service from beginning to end!"
Cons: "We boarded about 40 mins late due to maintenance issues"
Cons: "This was the worst airline I've ever flown and I don't generally use hyperbole in my reviews. How is it that customer service won't answer the phone except for the 2 hours there is an agent at the gate? I arrived at 9:30pm on 7/21 and received my luggage at 11:30pm on 7/22 even though it arrived on the 11:20 AM flight."
Pros: "the lady at the counter was friendly and extremely helpful! She was amazing and made the entire experience one I will not forget. Give that lady a promotion she is amazing. I was at pensacola airport the morning of July 5th, and I didnt catch her name, but she is african american and has pink finger nails. She should be rewarded for being so helpful and sweet. She truly made my day!"
Pros: "Sat for a while to think on this one. Couldn't come up with a single thing."
Cons: "If you have a problem or bad experience you can't call customer service - you have to email them and wait "up to 30 days" for a reply. Flight was delayed To save time when the planes finally did arrive they must not have cleaned them - there were greasy forehead prints and hairs on my window. The plane seemed very run down. A couple of the staff were nice (professional only) but one woman at check in was very rude when I approached her to ask a question. Not worth saving a few bucks to be mistreated and so stressed."
Pros: "Flight on time. Crew very helpful and cordial."
Pros: "easy boarding process, nice and friendly crew."
Cons: "why only water ? get back to a soft drink and pretzels please !"
Pros: "Very few lunges and bumps"
Cons: "Plane delayed, VERY loud, very small and tight everywhere"
Cons: "Don’t block the bathroom for >1 hr during the flight because one flight attendant is hanging out with the pilot."
Cons: "We sat on the runway in Fort Lauderdale for an hour and 15 minutes. Very aggravating"
Pros: "Crew was nice. Smooth flight."
Cons: "flight delay, then another equipment delay. But, better to fly in a safe airplane than rush things. I think the seats would be a little uncomfortable for a flight longer than a couple hours."
Pros: "The cost of the flight"
Cons: "The seats suck. They are so uncomfortable!"
Cons: "Took about half hour to get the baggage. Too long"
Pros: "I slept"
Pros: "Very fast flight. Got to destination early."
Cons: "One flight attendant was pretty rude. Her poor attitude was noticed by multiple passengers."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Paid for xtra for seat. The plane didn’t have the seat. Terribly cramped and uncomfortable."
Cons: "Missed flight due to delayed one of 5 plus hours"
Pros: "Check in crew is efficient."
Cons: "Check in procedures are arduous. No kiosks, long lines. baggage fees are ridiculously high."
Cons: "The inability of someone to take responsibility of the mistakes made by DIA and Frontier airlines. I will be bringing this to the attention of Corporate regarding this incident, and if need be I will be contacting the media"
Pros: "The agent was very helpful with my rescheduling. I am hoping my flight two days from now will go well."
Cons: "There was a six hour delay without any likelihood of a departure. Frontier I was told had problems acquiring a crew."
Pros: "Nothing. Would rather take a bus or pay the $ to fly a normal airline."
Cons: "The service is trashy. Frontier customer service hung up on me when I called to complain about rude service. The cheap price is a scam if you have anything more than a personal bag. Absolutely terrible airline. Will not ever fly again."
Pros: "The flight attendents were wonderful, funny, and nice."
Cons: "The seats dont recline. The tray table is tiny. They charge for non alcoholic beverages. They charged me $45 for my carry on bag. Frontier is the worst, not worth the discounted ticket at all."
Cons: "Great flight"
Pros: "The flight staff were friendly and very fun"
Cons: "The seats don’t recline. It was the most uncomfortable 4.5 hours ever. And he flight was delayed."
Pros: "No setbacks. On time departures. Arrival ahead of time."
Cons: "Food is quite limited."
Pros: "Crew members were nice and professional"
Cons: "Baggage claim was very late, waited extra 45 min"
Pros: "On time and friendly staff"
Cons: "Those new chairs suuuuuuuuuck!"
Cons: "not clean"
Cons: "I was forced to pay for my carry-on which was the same price as the check in bag. The complimentary drink and nuts were a charge and I missed my layover flight because they did not announce it. I want my money back! I had to get a whole new ticket from a different airline."
Cons: "I hated every aspect of that flight."
Cons: "Delayed flight I stayed in the airport a day"
Pros: "The flights on time and the crew were courteous and professional."
Cons: "Seats were small and too close to side seat as well as front and back seats too close"
Cons: "The flight was delayed and it was a long process to get everyone boarded. It seemed very random and not organized."
Pros: "The pilot was extremely nice!"
Cons: "My husband was boarded last which is always awkward when going down the isles in an isle chair. You end up saying excuse me several times not to mention all eyes are on you. Not easy to sleep on the plane. Seats were not that comfortable. Not able to recline. We were towards the back and the flight crew had the bright light on not to mention they were talking about their experiences with other people on different flights. We had to wait for 20 mins for someone to come get my husband off the plane even after notifying the appropriate people. The Atlanta staff when arriving was extremely rude and unfriendly during a non-busy time. That was the worse experience we've ever had!!!"
Cons: "Fees for carry-ons, tiny tray tables, uncomfortable seats. Worst airline I've ever flown on. Kayak ought to start taking fees into account when presenting ticket prices."
Cons: "Departed over an hour late"
Pros: "The flight attendants were fairly kind and considerate when going about their job."
Cons: "I fly a lot and have taken a fair share of disappointing flights but this one certain hits the top. The boarding process was chaotic; the woman at the counter was down right rude and did not once make eye contact. The flight crew was close to useless when people were taking too long to be seated or placing bags in the overhead. I cannot rate food or entertainment because frontier is too cheap to even hand out tiny bags of mixed nuts. You certainly pay for what you get. Then we all waited 45 minutes for our bags to be unloaded at baggage claim. That is an unacceptable amount of time! Only for me to realize my bag was lost and somewhere in Mississippi. I've been traveling as a frequent flyer member on united and American for five years and I was considering joining frontier'/ program but after this experience I need to reevaluate."
Pros: "Low price compared to alike flights. Crew and pilots were nice, friendly, and always helpful. Boarding was very fast and easy. I was on time if not early for all 4 of my scheduled landing times. Clean plane. Overall a great experience."
Cons: "My gate number to board changed 3 times within 1 hour, which may not be Fronteirs fault. Uncomfortable seats that don't lean back. No entertainment. Food and snacks cost money, no complimentary food/drink except water. Cost money for carry-on bag. No puke bags in the seats. They nickel and dime you for everything, but it's worth it if you travel light and don't care about the little things. I was surprisingly pleasantly surprised."
Cons: "The plane waited for a part that never came, held everyone back on a hot plane, no water is being offer and the worst part is there was a fly lingering around the pale for the whole entire flight"
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "I haven't flown frontier for about 7 years. I used to love the airline but didn't realize they had changed their model. I was so surprised we had to pay for EVERYTHING even a carry on bag. The seats were uncomfortable and didn't recline. There wasn't a real tray table to do work, you can't get any sort of beverage without paying. I felt nickeled and dimed the entire time. The crew were not very friendly. Also, I was given a $10 voucher by frontier and I asked 3 different employees how to use the voucher and no one knew. Additionally, the frontier website and check in process is not intuitive and very lengthy and frustrating. I would gladly pay more to fly ANY other airline but frontier in the future."
Pros: "Frontier has become the worst airline in recent years.The reasons I feel this way are too many to count but overall it has been a terrible experience fly Frontier, consistently. It is a huge disappointment as Frontier used to be my favorite."
Pros: "I liked that it was on time and it was a short flight to Orlando from ATL. Any longer and I may have considered jumping out the plane."
Cons: "I didn't know that they were going to charge me $30 each way for CARRY-ON!!! They wanted extra money just to put your party together. I was flying by myself so I didn't care, but they wanted 25/seat to sit in the middle of the plane per person. I have a family of 7 (5 kids 8 and under) and had we been flying together that would have been a surprise round trip expense of $250 for seats and probably $400-500 in baggage. I would have been very upset. You pay for soft/juice drinks and small snacks. The 'free' water I asked for/received didn't have ice. I assume that was extra, but I wouldn't know b/c the lady who gave it to me was off before I could even ask. I was starting to think they were going to make me pay for a seat belt. I have recently booked another flight to Arizona on frontier before I left on this one and I am already dreading that flight. I will not be going on Frontier again nor recommend it to anyone else."
Pros: "Crew and pilot were helpful."
Cons: ". When I made my connecting Th seats were equally uncomfortable. I am an average fit person. This was a terribly uncomfortable flight as a result."
Pros: "Rows are too close together. My knees were tight against row in front of me."
Cons: "Feel like low price is a scam as they charge for everything else. Fees for all seats except center of last 3 rows. Check in took way too long. $40 baggage fee is highest I have seen. On-line check in did not work. Kiosks for check in were not working."
Cons: "Sitting at the gate for 30 minutes waiting for a soccer team that couldn't get to the airport on time! Walking two miles with my handicapped wife because we got to Atlanta much later and the trains were down for maintenance! Getting home at 6am and having to take a quick nap, shower, and be to work at 8:30! All because Frontier cared more about one team than all of its other passengers!! I'll bet they won't hold a flight for me!!!"
Pros: "Price was good, but still gets you on the add one."
Cons: "Staff was not very professional. Talking loudly about their previous nights adventures, etc while in the back."
Cons: "Be honest with your ticket pricing. Don't advertise a cheap ticket price, and then after the sale is complete say, "Now pick your seat and pay more money." Frontiers ticket pricing is akin to ObamaCare, nothing but deciet and dismal results."
Pros: "quickness of departures/boarding"
Cons: "no room for our carry-on, was full when we boarded, had to 'check' in... and I checked in 24 hrs early and paid for carry on ahead of time so knew I had."
Pros: "I cant really say that I liked it anything that much."
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that you had to pay $25 to check your luggage and then I think it was absolutely ridiculous that you have to pay $35 for a carry on. I don't understand why cost more money to carry on a bag then it will be to check your luggage. Also I think it's silly that they don't offer free complimentary snacks on the airplane and this seems don't even replying back. I thought this was a cheap flight but it turned out to be just as much as a regular Airline"
Pros: "I liked that the flight was only delayed by one hour...as opposed to the 4 hours it was delayed going from San Francisco to Houston!!"
Cons: "2/3 crew members seemed overly annoyed by simple requests like bringing a glass of water. No water was offered unless requested...poor service and even worse attitudes!!"
Pros: "Chairs don't recline. Bags sent to wrong claim area. No leg room. Plane was freezing."
Cons: "Plastic seats that don't recline, passing for a carryon, having to move out of my seat that I paid for to "balance" the Airbus 320 I was flying on."
Pros: "The fight, and it's crew were as good, and as professional as any other carrier, I've ever flown with. Even those full priced, and over priced carriers. There was no entertainment on this flight. And I did not purchase any food or drink. I would have liked the seat to recline a little more, but hey,, it's an economy carrier. You can't have everything. Besides, it was a late night flight. Only three and a half hours. By the time I got into a good snooze, we were landing in Cleveland. Look forward to doing it again."
Pros: "clean plane, on time"
Cons: "Small uncomfortable seats. Small unusable trays. No complementary services. Overpriced baggage fees. Minimal carry-on allowance. not my favorite airline – except for the cute animals painted on the planes."
Pros: "Flight was delayed about 3 hours. First was a delay of 1 and half hours for maintenance, then they brought a different plane. Then we were delayed an hour on the tarmack for an hour due to weather. Not their fault But all we were offered was water. Brew was very nice. Just really felt that due to "double whammy". Should have at least got a coke. They also charge $40 for carry on bag. Really."
Pros: "Departed close to on time."
Cons: "First of all, at the ticket counter there was a LONG line because only one agent was working at the time. There should've been more staff considering it was the weekend after Christmas. Then, I did not like that they seemed to charge for everything - coffee, tea, soda and juice, most seats open required a fee during booking and even carry ons cost, which was not made clear up front when I purchased the ticket or I would NOT have booked with them. Knowing this would've caused me to rethink the ticket purchase in comparison to other airlines. I will not choose Frontier again on purpose! It's not worth it."
Cons: "It'd be nice if I could specify N/A for items that I didn't have, such as food and entertainment."
