Cons: "The flight was supposed to leave out of Cortez at 6am, the pilot showed up at 620am, and we did not depart untill 635am. Because of this, we missed our next flight out of Denver. There was no reason this flight should have been this late. When attempting to talk to boutique air staff at the airport and on the phone there was nothing they could do. 1. Because we "choose" to fly and 2 bc it was bought through a 3rd party. No one was able to help us. Unfortunately our next flight to Omaha only departs every 2 days. The closest they could get us to home was 7hrs away from our car at the airport. It was not frontier fault that we missed our next flight, it was clearly boutique air. The pilot in Cortez was a complete jerk, had no sense of time or urgency. If we are required to show up 90 minutes early, so should the pilot. We were stranded in Denver unless we wanted to buy all new tickets for around $800 or wait 2 days for next flight . I was very mad at boutique and their staff was less than accommodating or understanding. Very poor service. They would not own anything because flight was bought through kayak."
Pros: "Pilot was personable, airline staff were kind and helpful. Also, it was the smoothest landing I’ve ever experienced in any size plane once we got down below the turbulence."
Cons: "I’d never flown in a plane that small, and when flying in to Denver, it gets bumpy. I suppose once I get used to it, it won’t be so bad."
Pros: "Don't have expired foodstuffs"
Cons: "See above Bruh lmao"
Pros: "For instance I had left my lap top in airport terminal and we were ready to start to move away from gate I had told pilots and they asked permission from the higer ups and was givin permission to shut it down and co pilot ran back to gate and picked up my lap top it would have been a totally messed up my business trip when he picked it up and put it in my hands I was so impressed I will never ever use another airline on this trip to vernal Utah ever again if they ever have any other companies on this same route even if they were more expensive I would still utilize there services because of the professional service and care it's a no brainer for me and my company to use them and the airline routes above and beyond the call of there duty I was impressed as well as the other passengers in this flight Denver to vernal Utah exalent flight and very little turbulence on time and carrying people p pilots and ground crew both airports I appreciate good old fashioned service and careing other then a ticket I was a real person to them all I give them all a perfect 10 OUT OF 10 THANK YOU FOR BEING REAL I FLY ALOT FOR MY BUSINESS ANF THERE THE BEST AT WHAT THEY DO WISH HAD MORE OF THIS KIND OF REAL BUINSSINESS LIKE THIS I CAN NOT GIVE THEM ENOUGH GOOD THINGS TO SAY ABOUT THEM TO MY FELLOW CO WORKERS AND OTHER PEOPLE AND BUSINESSES TO RECOMMEND THEM FOR THERE GREAT SERVICE AND ATTENTION TO THE CUSTOMER THANK YOU AGAIN I APPRECIATE A GOOD IDEA AND ATTENTION TO BE THE BEST YOU CAN BE SINCERELY LOUIS STEVENS .... AGAIN THANK YOU FOR BEING REAL...."
Cons: "Nothing they did it all rite great job guys good hires !!!!"
Cons: "We were told the water and peanuts were in these drawers, help yourself. It made sense for the type of flight it was. Never been on a flight like that before."
Cons: "Was I in a bad re-run from Wings? Spent 10-hours in DIA courtesy of Boutique suddenly not having a 'plane'. Later in day the line was, "waiting on pilots", while said pilots had lunch in plane. Joke, horrible, horrible."
Cons: "My flight was canceled twice and delayed once so much that I could not make my connection. I ended up having to rent a car rather than fly with Boutique. They will supposedly be reimbursing me for that but I have not received it yet. They would not reimburse me for the money I had to pay to change my connecting flights. I ended up missing two full days of work."
Pros: "That a seat was available at last minutes."
Pros: "I really like the ticket price. It makes flying affordable."
Pros: "Quick cheap flight"
Pros: "What did I like? Everything! Service, price, flight conditions, crew were all wonderful. It felt like taking a private jet and was less expensive for my husband and I to fly round trip than to rent a car to drive from Denver to Durango for a week!"
Pros: "Staff, pilot, co-pilot were friendly but professional. Flight on time. Bumpy, stormy day...exciting flight. Small plane, eight seats but challenging weather, which the crews handled with confidence."
Cons: "I have nothing to complain about."
Pros: "comfort, speed of flight, LOVE the terminal"
Pros: "Same as above."
Cons: "Same as above."
Cons: "Scheduled to fly Cortez, CO to Phoenix at 10am xmas morning. Delayed until 11:40. At 11 it was delayed another hour. At 12 it was delayed another hour. At 1 it was delayed another hour. At 2:30 it was cancelled. Ridiculous lack of communication. We assumed it was weather, but eventually they told us it was mechanical. We had to drive 7 hours to get to our vacation, mostly at night, partially in a snowstorm with icy roads, and of course the 8 hours home later in the week. If we had known they would cancel in the morning it would have been much less stressful for all. Or better yet - have some airplanes on hand in case of mechanical failure!!"
Pros: "Great service, comfy flight, extremely smooth despite the small plane. Best flight experience I've had in a long time!"
Pros: "Great service, comfy flight, extremely smooth despite the small plane. Best flight experience I've had in a long time!"
Pros: "Comfortable ride with little delay. Good pilots"
Pros: "Customer service landing and take off. Everything really smooth. Cheap and best. Felt like my private plane"
Pros: "The convenience and price. Its so affordable now!! The staff is so nice and helpful!"
Pros: "It was an amazing flight. Everyone at Boutique Air was professional, welcoming and friendly. The plane was exceptionally comfortable and the view was incredible."
Pros: "My good experience started since I checked in. The lady at the counter was very nice and helpful. The flight was very comfortable and the crew were also nice. I really liked the seats. I am going to recommend this flight to everyone I know!!"
Pros: "Friendly crew and staff. Easy check-in and boarding processes. Thanks so much!"
Pros: "The staff were pleasant to work with."
Cons: "Flight was scheduled to depart at 4:30pm and without any weather or mechanical delays the flight is pushed to 6:30pm. Then 7:00pm. Now 8:00pm. And I am still waiting."
Cons: "The flight delay caused me to miss my connecting flight in Denver. I then had to pay $165 to change my flight. None of the airlines helped waive this fee. This is Boutique's responsibility as the delay was due to "not having enough fuel to get to Denver." This should have been accounted for prior to the 10min before the flight was supposed to depart. I am incredibly disappointed with Boutique and the lack of customer service."
Cons: "It has been seriously delayed and I have not taking that flight yet ."
Pros: "The flight was fast and easy. The pricing is affordable. I like how there is no hidden fees. I also like how the plane only has a few seats."
Cons: "The plane was really hot when I first got on."
Pros: "Smooth landing and nice people"
Cons: "The set belt light never went off to get up and get a drink or snack"
Cons: "So easy and comfortable to fly with Boutique!"
Pros: "I liked the small flight and the relief of not having such chaos with so many passengers. (My first time flying by myself.) Friendly staff and overall good experience."
Cons: "Only issue I had was with the gentleman who sat in front of me. He took his shoes off and stretched his legs over into my seating area (also touched me with his feet). I have bad knees so I understand the need to stretch, but I like my personal space and absolutely HATE feet. Maybe should have a recommendation of respecting personal spar since the flight is so small."
Pros: "It was a different experience altogether compared to a normal commercial flight. Walking out on the tarmac eith your two pilots and 4 co-passengers beats standing in the frenzy of people jockeying into position so they can bring all their luggage on and avoid checked bag fees."
Cons: "Was a little priecier than other options but not much."
Pros: "Everything was excellent!"
Pros: "Takes no time at all to load 5 people on a plane! Great flight and you can see the things below you...Awesome."
Pros: "Great friendly pilots, smooth flight"
Pros: "I loved the customer service and helpfulness as I had never flown through this airline. It's a must do!"
Pros: "On time, easy check in, and friendly staff"
Pros: "The hospitality of crew"
Cons: "The noise of the plane"
Pros: "What a fantastic surprise. Best flight ever and no hassle. Service is second to none!!! Husband loved it even more than I. Full size drinks and nuts, smooth flight all the way through, We will do this again and again. Thank you!"
Cons: "No downside at all"
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Plane was small so it was scary whenever we hit turbulence."
Pros: "From Albuquerque to Los Alamos you have a choice between driving for two hours or flying for 25 minutes. It's an easy choice when the flight is relaxed and professional and the scenery is incredible. And did I mention inexpensive?"
Cons: "The flight was delayed a little bit for a GPS update."
Pros: "The crew was informative, pleasant, and easy to speak to. Take-off and landing were both VERY SMOOTH for a small 8-passenger plane."
Cons: "We flew with a lot of turbulence so the flight was slightly delayed."
Pros: "I have flown between SLC and Denver perhaps 600 times over the last 20 years. This was perhaps the first time ever that I enjoyed the flight."
Pros: "Expectations were exceeded and beyond. Very professional and everyone made me feel important. Impressed from booking to landing."
Cons: "I do not have a complaint."
Pros: "Great experience. Great service."
Cons: "No issues here."
Pros: "Very nice crew and it was very pleasant to fly with these people."
Cons: "I think this is just startup glitches, but there was no notice of the airline not being in the main terminal. Luckily, I called the airline number and got information that it was in the general aviation terminal (SLC)."
Cons: "We finally got to DIA, there was no shuttle ready to get us off the plane. We were not allowed to go into the main terminal because we didn't go through security. I hope that this is a successful business as it was very pleasant, but a lot of things need to be worked out to become more popular."
Cons: "Unfortunately, the flight did not operate and I ended up driving 700 miles with a fellow stranded passenger. Too bad, because I was really looking forward to flying on a smaller plane for a change. Maybe next time..."
Pros: "I promise I wasn't paid to write this, I am a frequent flyer and a believer in the way Boutique has things set up. The staff was friendly, from the counter workers to the pilots. The whole process was way faster than a larger airliner, granted there is usually a maximum of 8 passengers, but you get on fast and take off quickly! Plus every seat is first class; they rotate to allow more leg room, and recline very nicely! First time flying with them, and last time flying anyone else (if I can help it!)."
Cons: "The airplane is smaller than your usual airline, it's a Pilatus PC-12, so the turbulence is a little more apparent. Beyond that, it is a wonderful airplane!"
Cons: "I had read the previous reviews and decided to ignore them but what I got was even worse The plane was delayed. When it showed up it could not take off because it had a problem we had to wait for 2hrs to be talled that the flight has been cancelled because the faulty part has to come from Denver. If you value your life dont use this airline"
Pros: "Great flight"
Cons: "Crew was fantastic on United!"
Pros: "I watched a good movie."
Cons: "The plane seemed old. Food was pretty lousy. Hummus was dry, crackers were stale."
Cons: "Need power outlets at seats."
Cons: "Over two hours delayed. Had to carry on carry off my bags that were heavy. Messed up my schedule. Had to incur extra charges at San Diego destination due to the inconvenience."
Cons: "We were delayed in Chicago due to weather coming home from Europe. We were not allowed to use the business class lounge even though we paid for business class tix. My family is still sitting in the airport waiting on their flight to dallas. We have been up now for over 24 hours. We should be allowed to be someplace comfortable for the price of the business class tickets. poor form on Lufthansa’s part."
Pros: "Service on Lufthansa is better than most us carriers"
Cons: "The gate agent did notice I was changing carrier but did not distinguish my bag at Check in"
Pros: "The entertainment can stream a large library of movies to your device"
Cons: "Seats only marginally comfortable, weather delays caused us to leave very late (although I made my connections, many did not)."
Pros: "No problems to deal with"
Cons: "The team in the airport seemed unsure about how to handle situations including checking people in, using the new TSA pre- check line, & resetting is he security equipment."
Pros: "Extraordinary efforts to accommodate bags in the overhead bin."
Cons: "No one could get their story straight and actually lied! I was sent a text (I was already at the airport) that the flight would be delayed due to "aircraft maintenance". Not true in the least bit. Then when we finally landed in Denver (nearly every person on that flight missed their connecting flights) we were told the system said the delay was "due to weather". Another lie. Then they announced there would be gate agents to meet us when we got off the plane to assist with connecting flights. First gate agent said "I have no information you have to go to gate 56". The person at gate 56 said "I don't open for another 15 minutes so you have to go to gate 39"! The real story? They made us change gates 5 times in Fargo! The gate attendant was using the "F-bomb"! It wasn't aircraft maintenance or the weather. They couldn't get the walkway to work! In the end, we still left from the original gate and had to walk outside on the tarmac to board the plane. Why didn't they just opt for that to begin with and avoid all the missed flights? My measly voucher isn't nearly enough compensation and if United ever expects me to fly with them again I am expecting a full refund (as other passengers received- I witnessed the manager in Denver authorize a full refund for another passenger but only offered me $50)"
Pros: "Flight departed on time and landed ahead of schedule."
Cons: "United baggage check in at Orlando Airport was chaotic with huge crowds, inattentive United staff ignoring passengers, and a baggage conveyor belt that was broken down."
Cons: "It was super cold. Miserable."
Pros: "Security was quick and efficient. Boarding was extremely organized. The airline attendants were attentive. The pilot on United informed us when the possibility of hitting turbulence occurred so we could adjust accordingly. Overall, great travel experience."
Pros: "Boarding and landing ahead of schedule"
Pros: "Generally it was ok. Travelling is so horrible these days that "ok" seems pretty great."
Cons: "My bag was lost but my husband's, checked at the same time, made it."
Cons: "Refused to delay connecting flight in Denver even though severL of where already on ground in delayed flight coming into Denver. Albuquerque flght was still at gate when I got there, having run through airport along with several others. We were refused admission to plane despite delay being United's fault. Unacceptable! I will avoid flying United in the future whenever possible"
Pros: "I didn't fly.I bought the ticket for my son. He had no complaints. You should ask in your questionnaire if the booked flight was for self or someone else."
Cons: "How they canceled one of my flights just as I landed at my layover for that flight when I look back at Boston they had a direct flight ready for my destination. Very poor management I was stuck in Chicago with no money or food for hours then after they start boarding for my new flight they tell me that I may not be able to get on even with ticket in hand. It was a joke and very stressful"
Pros: "Boarding was uneventful, but I wish I could have gotten a gate check....I;m 76 and getting my bag above the seat is difficult. But the gate attendant said there was no gate check on that flight."
Cons: "I had a center seat and that is very uncomfortable for me."
Pros: "Got there on time."
Cons: "Private screening does not work well. Very little kneeroom. No room in seat back pockets to put anything."
Pros: "On-time departure from Cancun but early arrival in Denver (relatively mild jet stream?). Otherwise, fairly typical United cattle carrier."
Pros: "The pilot apologized profusely for our delayed departure, and offered us free in-flight TV. He made up time, and we arrived only 30 minutes late (take-off was delayed over an hour)."
Cons: "Airplane went to the wrong airport and caused 3 hour delay . Missed my connecting flight."
Pros: "Suitcase arrived at the carrousel on time , much better than Houston."
Cons: "Delayed and got downgraded without refund of difference"
Cons: "I wish I could have gotten more beverage (water) during the flight. Very dry in the cabin but all-in-all, it was a pleasant experience."
Pros: "This leg of my journey was fine. Sat in the middle seat. Was able to sleep most of the way."
Pros: "United seems to be recycling which is a good thing."
Cons: "The obnoxious child sitting behind me. He kicked the seat and pulled on the tray."
Pros: "Instead of a 4 hour layover in Denver, I was easily able to get on an earlier flight to slc thank you to such a wonderful front desk agent. Even the crew members on board were so pleasant you could tell they truly enjoy their job and want to make for an enjoyable flight. Thank you United!! Will be flying with you again!!"
Pros: "Extremely friendly crew"
Cons: "No entertainment, but that is expected"
Pros: "Efficient boarding"
Cons: "Very rough flight but pilot did a good job of keeping passengers informed"
Pros: "My flight home was surprisingly faster than I thought it would take and the entire time I was comfortable and relaxed."
Pros: "The crew members were welcoming and the cabin was clean."
Cons: "Only limited drinks were available and then the flight attendant forgot to bring the water I requested. Thankfully it was a short flight, so it wasn't that big of a deal."
Pros: "Customer service at Dulles was helpful"
Cons: "My trip was jacked up on both ends, starting with cancelled flight at 11 p.m. the night before, phone calls to United to change flights on the way out, and then maintenance on the way back home, which caused me to miss my connection in Dulles. Horrible accommodations, bad replacement flights, baggage service in Syracuse was dishonest and apathetic. All around bad."
Cons: "Screaming 2 year old child!!!!! The child was old enough to know better & the mother did nothing. This child was soo fussy & whining about the littlest things. Mother couldn't even get into the overhead compartment to get a coat without this little child screaming for his mama. She did nothing to calm him down & his screaming pearcing harmonic voice was almost umbarriable for people to stand."
Pros: "I am so don't think there's anything like that flight"
Cons: "Crew was very disrespectful when you asked him a question it was like they made you feel as if they've had to go out of their way to try to help you out Very to satisfied with the crew along with the seating"
Pros: "very comfortable ride, no bumps at all."
Cons: "no snacks, didnt have my debit card to pay for the ones for sale"
Cons: "Route tracker was unavailable."
Pros: "Relatively easy to change flights due to weather delays"
Cons: "United personnel did not seem too chipper."
Cons: "Delays in take off"
Pros: "I arrived alive."
Cons: "United Airlines has one job, to move people from one location to the next. I'm concerned that United thinks it's in the data transfer business or the package hauling business or some kind of "gotcha' Internet business. There were never enough people at United to help me with my problem. Those real human employees that I found were mostly overworked, over regimented and procedure focused."
Pros: "Price was good but had to pay an extra $25 for baggage. Guess this is the new normal ans since I dont fly much I wasnt aware."
Cons: "Delayed flight due to a maintenance issue."
Cons: "Flight was delayed three hours which screwed up my connecting flight and put me in Minneapolis for the worst of the rush hour traffic"
Pros: "The entertainment is flight dependant. One flight had a personal tv monitor which is cool but you have to pay to watch it. The other had a thing where I could use my device and they had a decent selection but for some reason I kept being disconnected, the problem could have been my device but since I have never had that issue with the device before I blame united."
Pros: "Space for knees seemed to be more than usual. Attendants were friendly and responsive."
Cons: "Crying kids. Free entertainment was limited."
Pros: "So many maintenance delays, I wouldn't make any connections. Gate attendants were crabby and not very helpful."
Pros: "Frankly, there wasn't much about this flight that I liked besides the fact that I was lucky to have an empty seat next to me. Otherwise it was terrible."
Cons: "To start, my flight was delayed an entire hour due to our plane being towed from terminal B all the way to terminal C. I feel that is something that should have been looked into considering where the plane was coming from previously and the flight should have been planned for a later time to accommodate the wait time. Then as I am about to board the plane overhead compartment space ran out of room forcing me to check a bag which is why I brought a carry on to avoid any confusion when it came to checking the bag itself. When I arrive in Denver I go immediately to the baggage carousel and wait almost a half an hour for my bag which never shows up. Turns out when being forced to check my bag at the door it was tagged incorrectly with someone else's name and also a different flight schedule then my own. The Denver United team helped me find my bag, but after an hour and a half the ride I had arranged had left, I was over two hours late for a get together I was attending, with no way of getting home. I have never had such a terrible flying experience like the one I experienced on 12/11/15. I will never fly United again. I work in customer service I understand that people make mistakes but bottom line is to mark someone's bag with someone else's name is an extremely careless mistake that cost me my way home, my time, and my patience. Needless to say I was extremely unhappy and disappointed with United yesterday."
