Pros: "I like the spaciousness in the front for your feet."
Cons: "The flight lasted about 5 hours, but they only offered limited small snack (chip or granola bar) and some drinks. They have sandwich and other real food but it costs around $9.5. Some other airlines provide free full meal even the flight time was only 3 hours."
Pros: "good service good flight"
Cons: "Change gate not done properly"
Cons: "my seat wouldn’t stay up, it was a little broken"
Pros: "Movie selection was very good"
Cons: "Gentleman sitting in front of my son was intoxicated and dropped his sauce on the floor which splattered on my son. I told the hostess who helped clean up the mess. The man was too drunk to even realize his own mess. Limit drinks. He bought 3 drinks on a 5 hour flight."
Pros: "Alaska is my favorite airline."
Cons: "My seat assignments did not transfer to Alaska so I couldn’t get my seat assigned until just before I could board."
Pros: "More room in economy than other airlines. Thanks!"
Cons: "Still miss the live tv programs from Virgin America days."
Pros: "Half of the flight was empty. I asked of I could move to the row behind. I was told that was premium seating and I didn’t pay for that. I didn’t appreciate being addressed like that. And did ot really matter when nonoe is sitting there or plenty of other seats."
Cons: "She could have just let me sit there. I should have been told that the seat didn’t recline when the ticket was pirchase."
Cons: "Nothing - most excellent flight!"
Cons: "first class service"
Cons: "I was in the last group being boarded (D) - by the time it gets to this group it seems a kind of controlled pandemonium starts and the staff just do their best to herd people in. I have an Alaska Air credit card and one of the selling points was to board earlier, but that has not been the case, as they reserve this for their higher level customers, whatever that means. Also, on this flight, I was very unimpressed with the crew, there was a younger African American man, who was particularly unfriendly, he clearly needs remedial training in customer service. I was disappointed with my experience this time as I have mostly found the crews to be very professional."
Pros: "Crew Entertainment"
Cons: "Two hour delay"
Pros: "Service with the attendants on beverages"
Cons: "Being delayed and bumped to another location..the flight was bumpy a lot..my hour and half lay over for the other location.."

Cons: "Paying for baggage"
Pros: "Good crew/ gate team"
Pros: "Our flight attendants were fantastic."
Cons: "The application I had to download had cookies."
Pros: "Nothing, didn’t fly"
Cons: "I purchased insurance in the event my circumstances changed and I couldn’t fly. My circumstances did change and I ended up not flying. When I contacted Alaskan, they “reimbursed” me for the flight but simultaneously charged me $125 as a change fee. The result was no benefit from the insurance, and a loss of my money as a result."
Pros: "The great selection of movies available on the flight."
Cons: "The flight attendants seemed rude and not friendly."
Pros: "Also...spacious seating by coach standards"
Cons: "Never a fan of boarding zones but it was fine"
Pros: "Flight attendants were very nice and helpful."
Cons: "Our seats did not recline - this was a red-eye flight so not seats that do not recline is a problem. The plane was very cold and we kept our jackets on but it was still too cold. The flight attendant said it was warmer in the center of the plane. That's great for them but didn't help us since we were not seated in the middle."
Pros: "On time. Tons of free movie options. Good snack options. Comfortable seats."
Pros: "Flight was not crowded, so there was an empty middle seat. Arrived early."
Cons: "Nothing to complain about."
Pros: "The flight, seating, and co Siri on of the aircraft"
Cons: "The crew welcomed us to SFO AT 4:41 pm. We taxied, then towed, to a construction site next to a parking garage out beyond the international terminal. We deplaned to the ground and boarded buses that traversed the airport back to the domestic terminals and we got to baggage claim 50 minutes later. Missed my bus north by minutes. Not happy!"
Pros: "I love the biscoff cookies. Smaller plane. I had legroom though!! Business as usual. Good flight decent take off and landing."
Cons: "You need a n/a choice. Bags were a little late. Seatac has a terrible congestion problem at curbside pickup Seat did not recline. Really full flight. Not Alaska’s fault that people get a little cranky."
Pros: "The flight was delay, but the ground crew did a stellar job in keeping us informed while we waited by making several announcements on the progress of our flight. The flight crew also did a terrific job turning the plane around so we could board. I appreciate their service."
Pros: "Brand new plane, first-rate crew, and quick boarding and take off."
Cons: "It took the ground crew a long time to get in position."
Pros: "The flight was on time, the crew was very friendly and the seats were very comfortable. Overall very good experience."
Pros: "I had an aisle seat with no one in the middle seat next to me. Very little turbulence over The Rockies. Movie selections poor...same as back in March and it is now July."
Cons: "Flight arrived at 12:05 a.m. rather than 10:45 p.m. flight path went to Charlotte N.C. and then to Dulles..strange. Due to heavy traffic or weather conditions?"
Pros: "Premium seating has more leg room"
Cons: "Entertainment system down. WiFi worked intermittently and was very slow. Without the system, food service was nonexistent. I actually asked for food to purchase only to have an attendant walk to ‘check’ and never return. Abysmal."
Pros: "The two of us were originally set to sit apart, but the staff helped us and for our seats together! We were bey grateful."
Pros: "Flight was delayed and I loved how engaged the cockpit and cabin and gate crews were in keeping passengers informed."
Pros: "Crew was exceptional - friendly and took care of passengers, including helping an old lady with her bags etc."
Pros: "all was good trip and service nothing to criticize"
Pros: "The selection of movies"
Cons: "Noisy unfortunately second to last row on the plane near bathroom noise and traffic. Loud conversations behind me. At one point a woman started playing music on a device and singing loudly. This was a night flight. I think one of the passengers finally asked her to stop, I would have thought one of the flight attendants would have approached her"
Pros: "The flight and crew were great. We had an early departure and early arrival. The flight was not full"
Cons: "My seat 4a I should have moved to 1 or 2 a"
Pros: "Usually we fly United on a direct flight to PDX. That flight is no longer available so we chose Alaska to Seattle. Their entertainment and internet actually works making them a better option than United. Flights were on time, crew was friendly, and the aircraft was clean. No complaints with Alaskan, and actually happy to change airlines after years of being with United even though it is not a direct flight to our destination."
Pros: "Alaska is great in all ways"
Pros: "Ease of access Friendly flight attendants"
Cons: "Chargers didn't work on either flight"
Pros: "Amenities and service was great"
Pros: "Crew is very nice and helpful"
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable"

Cons: "I had a carry-on suitcase, but it wouldn't fit. It had to be checked, which was what I was trying to avoid."
Pros: "I had ample leg room the seat"
Cons: "The seats were very uncomfortable. They were too hard. They need to be a soft chair"
Pros: "The crew seemed good, including the front desk crew."
Cons: "The plane was late; so HOT inside while we waited."
Nice brand new plane for a short hop flight!
Snack/food offerings are a little mediocre nowadays!
Seatback unit very difficult to make work.
The check-in boarding counter only had 1 employee, the flight was running 20mins late.
We landed at 8:30pm and did not deplane until 9:45pm. We had to take busses to a terminal gate. It was awful.
Delayed departure. Made me have to pay more for parking and had to call out of work.
Anyone that purchased a Delta 1st Class seat should have access to the Delta Sky Club. My wife and I purchased 1st Class tickets for a Delta flight from SeaTac to Washington Dulles but were denied entrance to the SeaTac Delta Sky Club because we did have an American Express card.
Pros: "The crew and the quick boarding"
Cons: "There still needs to be more room in the cabin and comfort plus. And not only just for leg room but also arm room"
Cons: "This plane was too full for social distancing. I was really skeptical about this flight as it relates to the COVID pandemic."
Pros: "Crew was kind and helpful. Very clean and made sure we were able to sanitize and keep our area safe."
Pros: "The crew was good, and the airline tried to make our wait in the airport as comfortable as possible."
Cons: "The four-hour delay was really hard. Since it was in DC, I don't know why it took so long to get another plane."
Cons: "Four hour delay, rude gate agent, seat in front of me was broken making my already small space smaller, the plane smelled."
Pros: "I like the comfortable seats and the entertainment feature found on every seat."
Cons: "Not much. Delta is superior"
Cons: "The flight was delayed over two hours"
Pros: "Information communicated about delays."
Cons: "- more communication (any!) about bag status when landed - flight delay due to too many/too heavy baggage. Long delay was said to be due to making sure our baggage would accompany destination. Upon arrival, bag was left in NYC but this wasn't communicated. No info on bag status at airport or via ema"
Cons: "First class seats were too close together. It was very difficult to get out of you seat into the aisle. Food was not what it should have been for 1st class There was no wall between 1st class and coach giving little privacy when I worked my laptop. it was in direct view of the middle seat in coach"
Cons: "I used 7900 points to upgrade to “comfort” and nothing about it was comfortable. I was squashed between a window and a large man and my tv screen kept flickering on and off. I actually felt like I had less space overall than I would have in a regular seat."
Pros: "The seat was very comfortable even as a basic seating and the entertainment options were great."
Cons: "The voice from the pilot was very loud and would be too much if I had my headphones on."
Cons: "Disembarking could be more efficient"
Pros: "Very good"
Cons: "Seat assignments should have be provided at check in."
Pros: "The crew was dealing with NOVA/DC residents"
Pros: "Coming from Europe Alitalia and Delta did an EXCELLENT job at assisting the passengers get rid of their luggage just as soon as we were done going through customs... I don't usually fly on this route, but I thought it was perfect. Transfer between Delta terminal was a breeze too..."
Cons: "I usually don't fly from JFK. The food court was expensive (18 dollars base price from a burger seems a high even for an airport. I don't fly from NY normally - so maybe I need to tune my expectation for the locale, and it may have NOTHING to do with the airline company."
Cons: "I now know the downside of buying through Kayak, the ticket is non-upgradable even when seats became open and I offered to pay for the upgrade."
Pros: "The attention to detail from the crew, and the friendliness"
Pros: "The service is very good from the beginning. The flight attendant is very caring thanks so much."
Pros: "Friendly crew and on time flight"
Cons: "The aircraft is too old, MD-88. I don't know how Delta is flying that type of aircraft. Is very risky"
Pros: "Another safe flight. Crew was very attentive."
Cons: "Flight cancelled due to weather that was never bad but on the potential of bad weather. Had to scramble so my 18 year old son was not stranded overnight in a strange place and Delta does not help. Only rebooked a flight itinerary for the next day for a 4 hour flight with connections on a 1 hour direct flight. Spent an hour on line to figure out what to do. #neverdelta"
Cons: "Plane delayed 4 times for a total of 4 hours"
Pros: "The chargers worked in neither airplane."
Cons: "The chargers worked in neither airplane."
Cons: "It was smelly. Anyone who does not smoke can smell old smoke. Yuk. Also, smells like a neighboring passenger has bowel issues. Ick"
Pros: "The flight for getting us therw"
Cons: "No food and no entertainment"
Pros: "The flight was on time. Airport personnel were courteous & efficient. Airplane was clean. Pilot was friendly. A passenger had a peanut allergy so Delta distributed almonds, instead. Nice. Overall, I like Delta."
Cons: "Leg room was just barely adequate. It was a small plane-nothing could be done about that."
Pros: "I don’t know what Delta could have done better on this two leg flight from Albuqueque to Miami via Atlanta . Yes we were in First Class and it was a (groan) 6:05 AM flight which meant that we were probably on time. But Delta’s 737-900 (to Atlanta) was very comfortable, the crew did everything well and the breakfast was quite good. (Make sure you try the quiche). We had the same crew on the next leg to Miam, who were surprised and gave us a warm welcome. There were only snacks in 1st for that short segment, but they were all we wanted."
Cons: "Air turbulence over the Midwest storms."
Pros: "The crew was friendly, relaxed, made everything seem like a breeze"
Pros: "Everything went smoothly."
Pros: "I could be wrong, but the seats were very comfortable (for a plane) and I felt my knees weren't as close to the seat in front of me than other airlines. So that's a plus."
Pros: "Comfortable flight, ample leg room, and the chairs were pretty plush. Comfort+ is pretty nice"
Cons: "On my first flight they forgot to turn the wifi on. I have unlim data but obviously can't use while in air; no big though."
Pros: "The in flight entertainment and the pilot being informative about what was going wrong at the Atlanta airport."
Cons: "The insane process that followed the flight of rebooking - it would have been VERY HELPFUL to have access to the inflight internet so that I could have rebooked my missed connection before we landed in the ATL airport where it was past midnight and there were hardly any staff available for us to talk to and the lines to speak to anyone took literal HOURS to get through."
Pros: "flight attendants were great."
Cons: "not enough leg room and space. The business class should be at the minimum for economy."
Pros: "The crew was polite and friendly"
Cons: "My second plane had sooo much moisture coming from the cooling system it looked like the passengers were getting gased and I kept getting wet from water condensation falling on me in a window seat as I tried to sleep from having such an early flight to begin with only to be told it's delayed 3 hrs without explanation."
Pros: "Free drinks in Comfort+"
Cons: "See above description"
Pros: "Flight attendants were great."
Cons: "Movie and TV selection is not great for an international flight."
Pros: "Comfort with entertainment."
Cons: "No food options at all."
USB plug did not work in-flight and it seemed super bumpy from start to finish. Not sure if it was because it was a much smaller plane, but I fly generally 2ce a week for work and this was by far the bumpiest and wobbliest(not sure if that is a word..haha) I've had this year. Also, in Albuquerque the gates shifted from what was on the boarding pass to what was in the terminal which caused some confusion. Then landing in Austin for my layover to Tampa the flight was delayed and then back on time on the in-app boarding pass, the gate changed too and when I got to the gate my flight was not posted. I thought I was going to miss my flight because it was supposed to have been boarding right then and I couldn't find the gate for my flight. Finally someone showed up to the desk and I was able to ask, and she confirmed that it was that gate and was delayed. There were several of us going to Tampa that were a bit stressed and confused. After all was said and done we were delayed about an hour, but it was the confusion that made things so much more stressful. I like to fly American quite a bit, and have a MC as well, and although there have been some delays, which I understand will happen, I haven't experienced this level of confusion.
Flight was delayed one hour due to a mechanical issue.
It was disappointing at AMD airport. Qatar airways staff @AMD airport was working very slow , people @ counter#1 were just taking instead helping economy class passengers to get their boarding pass after first and business class was done getting boarding pass. Also they asked RT PCR report again @ boarding gate - which is really annoying. Qatar airways did not inform regarding changes guide line regarding RT PCR test - they asked me to take RT PCR again @ airport since my one was done before 72 hours as per old guidelines. How much time does it take for Qatar airways to send email regarding updated guidelines?
Cons: "American is poorly prepared for day long delays."
Pros: "Flight was not over crowded, allowing for proper social distancing! That is MUCH appreciated. Crew was wonderful."
Cons: "The couple in front of me got in a physical altercation as well as the couple seated behind me. Both situations caused much discomfort and could have been defused faster by flight crew"
Cons: "No food or beverage service during covid-19"
Pros: "Everything was great."
Cons: "Nothing. It was smooth and efficient."
Pros: "My flight attendant always smiled and was very hospitable."
Cons: "Paid for First Class so I could sleep on this red-eye. Wasted my money. Seat was uncomfortable, legroom in my bulkhead seat was horrible. I can sleep anywhere...make that ALMOST anywhere, now."
Cons: "There was a three hour delay for missing crew."
Pros: "Seating, nice personnel"
Cons: "Long layover in Chicago"
Cons: "Caught an earlier flight and the entire team made the process seamless."
Pros: "Flight attendants were excellent. Communication from the flight deck was good as well"
Pros: "Comfy seats and legroom in first class"
Cons: "Expected more than cookies for food in first class."
Pros: "by airlines"
Cons: "flying next day trough LAX"
Cons: "flight was delayed two hours because they couldn't find a single American airlines employee to sign off on some log book.sat on tarmac two hours because no one could sign a piece of paper!!! so obviously we missed our connecting international flight to dublin. called american customer svc, they made us call british airways, british airways said we had to call kayak, kayak said we had to call American. thanks for all the great customer svc. this is why everyone hates flying and all airlines are garbage. then finally in chicago american customer svc desk said they rebooked us on a British airways flight the same night, we traversed (ran) the entire chicago ohare airport only to find out british airways said we were not on that flight, were completely full and we had to go back to american. literally had to leave airport to get on train to go back to american terminal. they swear we are now (the next day) on this aer lingus flight despite our inability since last night to try and check in to that flight because aer lingus website doesnt work, no one answers their customer service number and their ticket counter at airport doesnt open until noon. suffice it to say we are still not on a flight to Dublin, ive missed an entire day of a limited vacation, and i will NEVER fly american again."
Pros: "Food - What can I say about pretzels except "Okay"?!"
Cons: "in the airport, the gate area dirty!, bathrooms dirty, no place to charge phone. The walk to the airplane, getting aboard the plane after the gate and flight changed and delayed. Being told it was weather related on the plane and being told it was MAINTENANCE by customer service. The plane was very crowded, the flight attendants never smiled. WHen i told the attendant i was being "rained" on he said...i know its happening everywhere..... he said there was nothing he could do but get me paper towels...they never came. I was very annoyed getting off the plane walking back and forth....it was aweful. and my flight before this was no better i am VERY TURNED OFF BY AMERICAN AIRLINES RIGHT NOW."
Pros: "The crew were polite, accommodating and understanding"
Cons: "The gate was changed 1hr prior to boarding despite the arriving plane having landed 3hrs prior. So with stroller and infant in toe, I had to run to change terminals/buildings. There was no assistance or prior warning regarding this from the check in staff and I made it all the way to the original terminal and gate before having to turn around. The desk staff at the gate was asked about early boarding for infants and said it would be okay but didn’t give clear instructions on boarding so I sat down and they began boarding each group 20 minutes later and did not give priority to mother’s with infants. The stroller which I brought to the gate was then tagged incorrectly with a white tag instead of a pink tag. I was later told by he crew that it meant it would go directly to baggage claim instead of being brought to the door. According to the crew, all staff know to tag with a pink tag. At every step there was blatant display of inconsideration that made an already difficulty journey, that much more challenging."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and helpful. Boarding process was pretty quick."
Cons: "The plane had one of those aggravating screens on the back of every seat. I turned it off AT LEAST EIGHT TIMES and it kept coming back on, first to try to sell me on a credit card offer, then to show me previews of movies I wasn't going to watch on a 5 AM FLIGHT that was lasting 75 MINUTES. I finally tore a page out of the AA magazine and wedged it against the screen so I could actually sleep without it constantly blinking on and disturbing me. Next time, I'm going to smash the screen. If I want it off, leave it off."
Pros: "Dreamliner plane"
Cons: "Terrible service from get go which continued when landing in Melbourne with hopeless Qantas."
Pros: "Left and arrived more or less on time. No major issues."
Cons: "Gates are way too far apart in Miami and the golf carts to get between areas seem to require reservations and long waits. Ridiculous. Most MIA staff was very rude (this wasn't American's own staff, or TSA, I should note). American stripped my group of our seat assignments (which we had selected 6 months prior) without reason and with minimal apology. No solution offered. Got middle seats but luckily was able to switch on one of the computer kiosks. Flight crew didn't seem to care that other people moved to the for-pay seats further up front (the flight wasn't full)... so why did we lose our seat assignments and get grief with not being able to select anything good? Not impressed."
Pros: "The fact we arrived safely"
Cons: "Long time to claim baggage, three hours delay, uncomfortable seats"
Cons: "No food"
Cons: "The information that was given was awful. Why would AA send a broken plane to ABW?"
Pros: "Nice people to fly with"
Pros: "everything fine"
Cons: "having to gate-check our hand luggage"
Pros: "Great staff. Arrived very early. Smooth flight ."
Cons: "short flight herded like cattle. not much about it"
Cons: "Rude crew, no bathroom useage for entire flight and staff would not help handicap with luggage."
Cons: "The information of code share was not clear..so I was expected to fly with JAL..."
Pros: "Almost on time"
Cons: "Boarding process, PA system volume very low at PHX"
Pros: "Met expectations. Landed early."
Cons: "Seats harder than expected"
Cons: "Delayed because of cleaning crew showing up late.... Totally avoidable. Gate crew was not helpful"
Pros: "Customer service at American Airlines was amazingly good. They figured out the mess that the third party agent, WEBJET.COM made and fixed it."
Cons: "The third party agent, webjet.com, was horrible. American airlines contacted them several times about canceling the ABQ-ORD flight and they never responded. WEBJET.COM did not put their name on the electronic ticket so I was unaware of who to contact. Finnair was not particularly helpful. They discontinued my chat conversation and didn't have an option to call back so I had to wait for 20 minutes. American Airlines was impressively helpful. They figured out that WEBJET.COM had canceled one leg of our fight and AA.com reinstated the flight. American had also contacted WEBJET.COM numerous times and WEBJET.COM had never responded."
Pros: "Remodeled plane style"
Cons: "Liked it"
Pros: "The spaciousness of the seating on AA is tops bar none"
Cons: "The cookies and it was cold. Jesse"
Cons: "Boarding took forever and I'm a Premium passenger."

Cons: "Able to choose own seats"
Cons: "The flight was delayed over an hour. Because of that, I missed my appointment."
Cons: "It turns out that this flight was delayed, so I would have missed my connections. Huge thanks to the gate agent from United who rebooked me to San Francisco and from there to Frankfurt and then Prague."
Pros: "Quick boarding. Nice crew. Newer clean plane."
Cons: "No screens provided. You have to use your phone with the United app and that’s assuming you have headphones and they gave me ear buds but they don’t work for iPhones...so yeah."
Cons: "Everything was excellent. I got upgraded to first class, the flight arrived early and I was on the left side of the aircraft so I had an excellent view of DC as we came in for a landing."
Pros: "The seat was very comfortable"
Cons: "Wasn't expecting to have to run all the entertainment through my mobile device. I'd that's what you're gonna do, we're should get free wi-fi"

Pros: "Old and thus soft and comfortable seats"
Cons: "Old plane overall"
Pros: "Service was nice & early."
Cons: "Seats are not very comfortable. Food selection is not very good.."
Pros: "Good equipment. Pilots communicative."

Cons: "THere was no entertainment"
Pros: "We flew for only 45 minutes on a flight that had been scheduled for 1.3 hours."
Cons: "The long delay seemed strange, as the plane had arrived from Costa Rica. Why would an airline schedule the same plane for an international flight and then a short hop from Newark to DC without adequate time in between? The departure gate at Newark was absolute chaos! Announcements were overlapping and not understandable. There was inadequate seating."
Pros: "Quiet and comfortable"
Cons: "No movie or tv"
Pros: "Availability of flights out of Chicago"
Cons: "Availability of flights out of Chicago"
Pros: "Seemed like an older jet, so the seats felt larger and more comfortable than most newer aircraft these days. I was surprised they could land a 757 at DCA, but we did!"
Cons: "Rude crew- not service oriented"
Pros: "Got home earlier than planned because I was able to get on an earlier flight."
Pros: "Check in was super easy. Seats are tiny. The screens on the backs of the seats are annoying, with nothing worth watching."
Cons: "Bag didn't arrive on my flight"
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable and cramped."
Pros: "I got to my destination."
Cons: "Here is no entertainment. The snacks are minuscule and pretty boring. And we sat on the tarmac at both Houston and DCA for a long time."
Pros: "It was fine. I got to my destination."
Cons: "Here is no entertainment. The snacks are minuscule and pretty boring. And we sat on the tarmac at both Houston and DCA for a long time."
Cons: "This was horrible. There was a delay and there was no announcement in the terminal. If I had not been checking my email I would have had no idea. I kept getting emails from UA with different times and they were all wrong."
Pros: "It was a quick flight. The flight attendant was friendly."
Cons: "Crew did not communicate well with ground crew on maintenance issue, causing us to sit on plane for 2:20 hours."
Cons: "Terrible delays and little to no communication."

Cons: "Seated in last row no recline on chair!"
Pros: "Able to sleep the whole way"
Cons: "Nothing in particular"
Pros: "It's was a very pleasant flight"
Cons: "Long waiting time to get luggafe"
Cons: "After three on-time flights from the other side of the world, I was stuck in Chicago for a 3 hour delay. The flight finally arrived at Reagan 2 minutes after the runway closed so we were rerouted to a different airport where we finally landed 4 hours late."
Pros: "Crew were fine."
Cons: "Seats are narrower and make for a lot of discomfort when stuck in the middle seat. I do not like other stranger's bodies touching mine. That is just wrong."
Pros: "Uncrowded flight so there were lots of extra seats!"
Cons: "No food or snacks provided for free."
Cons: "The only thing that was not good was the wifi-- we used it on our first flight from LAX to Chicago, but from Chicago to DCA we were unable to connect."
Pros: "My connecting flight was way late, but the plane was held for me and a few others in Denver. Because it was the last flight of the evening I don't know what I would have done if left at the airport indefinitely. I am grateful the plane was held. And regret any inconvenience this may have caused others."
Pros: "Boarded and left on time, arrived early."
Cons: "On board media could be upgraded."
Pros: "not much"
Cons: "United was happy to charge me $75 to switch me to an earlier flight, then that flight was an hour and a half late because they were missing a flight attendant. So they basically defrauded me out of $75."
Cons: "It was delayed so I had to take another flight. I've been trying to get this flight refunded"
Pros: "The flight was on-time."
Cons: "The seat, again, was the bad news."
Pros: "Was fine overall for a no frills airline"
Cons: "We were not notified prior to the flight that we could not of been a plane so of course the only snack I had with me for a four hour flight was a bag of peanuts. We were told we were not allowed to take any peanut products out on the plane and this was told to us from at takeoff."
Pros: "Clean airplane"
Cons: "Crew seemed short tempered (not just one individual) in response to basic questions. No snacks offered for free and I paid $50 to bring a carryon but there was no space for it. It may be the low budget business model makes a lot of customers unhappy and over time the crew naturally becomes a. Little defensive. Next time I’ll pay more to ride with another airline."
Pros: "The flight was generally acceptable"
Cons: "Late departure, warning of turbulence - with no actual turbulence. Fight attendant wouldn’t let me use the lavatory during the un-turbulent turbulence. You can’t get anything to drink without paying at least $2. The fees are annoying. I miss comfortable full service airlines."
Pros: "Great crew, easy boarding."
Cons: "Zero entertainment (no TVs, WiFi, inflight magazines or electrical outlets), very small tray tables, pretty uncomfortable seats"
Cons: "Late and cramped."
Cons: "would have been nice to be informed that a delay was taking place..."
Pros: "Nothing. Cheap price is an illusion as they charge you for breathing."
Cons: "Everything. Frontier is the worst. Spend $50-100 up front and fly ANY other Airline (except Spirit, they stink too)"
Pros: "Took off on time, landed on time, very smooth flight. Baggage arrived in a timely manner. No problems."
Cons: "I wish Frontier didn't have so many fees and provided in-flight entertainment like television or movies."
Cons: "Frontier is a horrible airline. They closed the gate early and wouldn't let my friends on board even though they got stuck in security. The service on the plane was horrible - flight attendants were very rude. I also witnessed an egregious security violation in the bag drop line which would make me too concerned to ever fly Frontier again."
Pros: "Both flights landed early and the pilot flew very smoothly (I tend to get air sick so I appreciated this). Easy to get on and off plane, no fuss. Great price ($250) to fly from DC to Denver, nonstop. Can't complain."
Cons: "The seats are very thin and feel like school bus seats, so it was a pretty uncomfortable couple of hours. Also, the check in at the kiosk is confusing and misleading. We were very prepared and did everything ahead of time (paid for our checked bag, knew that we'd have to pay for a cary on bag, etc.) but then when we checked in it asked us if we had a checked bag we needed to pay for. We doubted ourselves for a moment and almost paid for our bag, AGAIN, even though we had already done it. This payment should have shown up on our account and we should not have been asked about paying for our bag, that is confusing and misleading."
Pros: "The customer service line was very helpful changing our flight"
Cons: "Other flights to the surrounding easy coast took off and our explanation was that the plane we were scheduled to fly out on couldn't fly in weather... from Denver, CO... in January"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 2-1/2 hours departing from Denver. There was very little communication from Frontier regarding the reason for the delay. It was extremely frustrating being able to see our plane parked at the departing gate and NOT receive appropriate information as to why we could not board for 2-1/2 hours ! Frontier's newer passenger seat design is terrible ! I can't recall having to sit in more uncomfortable seats !"
Pros: "We didn't crash"
Cons: "--fee for carry-on, check bag (higher than industry standard), any beverage other than water --FEE IF YOU WANT A RECLINIG SEAT --started boarding the flight before the plane had been cleaned. Had the entire flight waiting on the ingested jetbridge for 15 minutes. In Denver. In winter. --flight delayed 1.25hrs as they had issues losing bags --took 1.5 hours to get my bag on the flight out."
Pros: "The crew on-board did a great job, but every other crew was a fail."
Cons: "Check in was not staffed properly, and took nearly an hour to do a bag drop. We paid extra for zone 1 boarding, but the first boarding announcement was for "all passengers, all rows". Once we reached our destination, it took a very long time for bags to show up. I flew Frontier for the direct flight to Denver, but I will be rethinking that in the future. I'm glad to pay a higher price for a higher level of service."
Cons: "It's a dumpy airline with bad seats, no amenities, markups on everything and generally uncomfortable. The service ain't much better."
Cons: "Surprised to pay $45 for carry on! Surprised at the small seats and no leg room and no reclining seats. Very uncomfortable. On leaving the plane, the line was slow, when we got up closer to the front we saw why....the clean up crew had started and was in the isle. Very odd....and inconsiderate. Will not fly on frontier again."
Pros: "The price The hospitality of the crew Flight crew"
Cons: "I thought the whole experience was very satisfactory."
Pros: "Ticket counter reps and crew were friendly and helpful. Flight was easy goin and pilot kept passengers informed throughout the flight"
Cons: "Frontier doesnt offer TSA pre-check for military even when the military ID is inputted online under the Known Number ID. The airline seating is uncomfortable. The seats dont lean back and there is no head cushion."
Cons: "I miss my flight. It was move to another gate and my time is wrong because of the time change. It would be nice if they post it at the podium screen or glance the passengers saying it was move. I was move to another flight and i have to pay again. Gate confusion."
Pros: "I have to say the employees do provide the best customer service they can. Everyone was very nice, and I was offered vouchers to appease me."
Cons: "My return flight was canceled about a week before. The alternative I was offered was no good, so I had to rebook on another airline for a lot of money. The outgoing flight was delayed by 3 hours. Won't be booking with Frontier again unless I have lots of flexibility in terms of time."
Cons: "Worst customer service ever - this flight is delayed almost 5 hours and counting due to plane maintenance in another city and the airline couldn't accommodate my request to get on another flight (I was willing to pay more!), not could they refund part of my $600 ticket (they said the connecting flight didn't contribute at all to the total cost of the round trip) so that I could book a flight with another airline. didn't offer a voucher or even comp the bag. I will get home after 3am (with work tomorrow). I explained that I've had food poisoning within the past 24 hours and feel weak, and am stuck at this airport with limited food options."
Pros: "I managed to fit a week's worth of clothes into my backpack that fit under the seat and got a great deal on this flight from DCA to DEN."
Cons: "I didn't like that I couldn't check in on my iPhone and have a paperLESS boarding pass...if I had been able to do that (as I mistakenly assumed I would) I wouldn't have missed my flight from DCA to DEN. They had shut down the check in computers 45 minutes before the flight so there was plenty of them to board. Please join the 21st century!"
Cons: "Same screaming infants. They were able to sleep but allowed to roam aisles."
Pros: "cheap ticket"
Cons: "- Trays were about 10 inches wide and 5 inches deep - which provides no value whatsoever. You can't place anything on it b/c it's not big enough. - Chairs were short so I had nothing to rest my head on. - Cramped isle space"
Pros: "They gave us a $10 voucher to use in IAD while we waited...for 6.5 hours."
Cons: "The delay seemed like it could have been prevented with a better computer system; we paid for our bags ahead and others didn't have to pay when we checked in because the system was down, no offer for a refund on that."
Cons: "Once you add all of the additional expenses, Frontier is just as expensive as other airlines, but with less comfort and amenities. I've flown with them twice and they have been tremendously frustrating on both occasions. Never again."
Cons: "On both legs of the trip, we were delayed for more than an hour due to inadequate grounds crew in Denver."
Cons: "Lost luggage and delayed takeoff"
Cons: "Seats - horribly uncomfortable, no recline Leg room - very tight unless you pay $50-$60 for stretch Hidden/extra costs - when I checked in almost all seats cost additional money; this is terrible for business travel and reimbursement purposes because it is considered an upgrade when really unless you take one of three middle seats at the very back of the plane, you have no choice but to pay. Carry-on fees are also ridiculous; it would be much better to be transparent and incorporate these costs into the ticket price. Food/drink - you offer no complimentary food or snack and when you buy something, there is a screen to add a tip - seriously?"
Cons: "Communication at the gate was poor. As well as the communication on board the plane."
Cons: "Our flight was late, but the board and the frontier employee working at the time kept insisting it was on time (even when it was past our departure time and we hadn't even loaded yet). Very frustrating, as this meant I couldn't update my family about what time to expect me. Seats we EXTRA close together. I'm only 5'4" and I was cramped. My normal sized backpack didn't fit under the seat in front of me even..."
Pros: "Price was great."
Cons: "The seats are terrible, especially for anyone over 6 feet. Expect not to be able to rest the entire flight. They are short and unbelievably uncomfortable."
Pros: "Direct flight to DC."
Cons: "I should say first that I think it's a little crazy to ever be too critical of an airline because, at the end of the day, flight is a miracle and I feel incredibly privileged to be able to afford a plane ticket home once a year. With that said, Frontier is really the only airline that I've ever flown on where you hear entire rows of flyers chatting throughout the flight about how much they hate to have to be using the airline, which is actually kind of ridiculous, considering it's a budget airline that even markets itself as such. I think I've flown Frontier three times now, and there's always just a feeling of plane-wide resentment toward the business and a lot of new flyers saying "yeah, I don't think I'll fly this again if I don't have to." Ultimately, I guess we all are responsible for our choice to try flying Frontier, it's just not a choice anyone feels good about. But kudos should be given to Frontier for making their ticket prices low enough to make people think they're still getting a deal even after paying out the a** in baggage fees. For myself and probably most of Colorado, we'll still always choose Southwest or jetBlue if we can, because even though it's a pricier ticket, you don't have to worry about being comfortable enough to sleep or dishing out money throughout your travels. However, if I ever take a direct 1hr flight up to Bozeman from DIA, and I'm only bringing my wallet, a chap stick, and the shoes on my feet, I'll probably consider looking at Frontier flights first. Also, it is a bummer that customers are rude to the crew. The staff on the airline are actually always high caliber IMO, and they're not the ones who made the business model, so stop giving them a snarky face when they make you swipe a credit card for your coffee!"
Pros: "Everyone was nice once we were on board"
Cons: "Our well-working plane was clearly given to another group, and all we were told was that we had a gate change that then turned into a 2h delay for mechanical problems. If you're giving the broken plane to us because the other passengers have a connection and we don't, say that, don't just act like nothing changed. Also, it's been a while since I rode Frontier and I really disliked the dinky trays and poorly arranged under-seat storage."
Pros: "The plane went up in the air and came down safely."
Cons: "There were inexplicable delays in boarding and departure. Frontier charges for carry-on bags in addition to checked baggage. The seats are very uncomfortable (they've removed any padding that used to be there) and made everything smaller. There are no drinks or food served, save for water if you ask for it. Basically, you just get a seat on a plane."
Cons: "My 7:25am flight was delayed nearly three hours! Right around boarding time, we were told that the plane had to be pulled out of the hangar and go through maintenance checks, so our flight would be delayed an hour. Later, we were told the flight would be delayed until 9:15am, and we were given a gate change and plane change. We finally pulled away from the gate close to 10am. It's absolutely unbelievable to me that the first flight out of the day would be delayed when there were no weather issues. This demonstrates very poor planning on behalf of the airlines. We were issued a $25 voucher for the inconvenience, but I don't plan to fly with Frontier again. They charge you for everything! (seats?, carry-on bags?, soda?), the seats don't recline and there's no leg room. I'd rather pay an extra $100 to fly United or Delta and have a comfortable flight."
Cons: "When I was selecting my seats, I had to pick one that cost an extra $12, because the free ones weren't available. That defeats the purpose of choosing a cheaper flight."
Pros: "The flight departed on time and arrived ahead of schedule, and the pilots did a good job adjusting altitude to smooth things out when we encountered turbulence."
Cons: "Having to pay $40 per carry-on each way on top of an expensive ticket and $16 each way to select a seat is ridiculous. Not to mention having to pay for food, even little snacks, on board. I understand that the crew have very little time to clean a plane between flights, but I've never experienced seats quite as bad as I found in my row upon boarding. Little bits of corn chips everywhere (on the seats, between the seats, on the floor, even in the seat belt buckle) and sticky mess where soda had spilled on the seat. My girlfriend fought her way back to the front of the plane to ask a flight attendant for something to clean up the mess, they took so long bringing anything eventually another passenger offered some napkins which we wetted with our own water and cleaned everything up ourselves. No flight attendant ever checked on us or offered to help clean or even pick up the pile of trash. The seats are not comfortable for me since they don't recline and the headrest is not adjustable (I'm 6'-2", the headrest makes contact with the top of my neck). The little fold-down tray is a joke, it barely holds a couple beverages. Even the back of seat storage is too small, barely holding a normal magazine. Whoever designed the seating area didn't seem to take into account human physiology and ergonomics or human behavior."
Pros: "It was inexpensive."
Cons: "Plane was pretty dirty with food and trash on floor. Many people had bags that were way over the carry on limit and size requirements."
Cons: "Plastic seats that don't recline. Mini trays that I can't put my laptop on. No wi fi. Won't be flying Frontier again"
Pros: "Flight was on time and crew was good."
Cons: "Seats are very crowded and uncomfortable ."
Cons: "The seats could have used those adjustable/folding headrests (with "wings" that prevent your head from lolling onto someone else's shoulder). With that, the experience of trying to sleep on the flight would have been 10x better!"
Pros: "The flight crew was great!"
Cons: "The flight was delayed over two hours and one of the persons giving updates was difficult to understand. The flight was also very bumpy."
Pros: "not much You pay for everthing incuding water, its like being nickled and dimed at every turn."
Pros: "Touch downs of all my flight legs are so smoothly done."
Cons: "an hour delay is a big deal!"
Cons: "Seats never reclined (even in rows that they should), tray table was minuscule (all you can fit is a cup/soda), no entertainment on a 4 hour flight; flight was not cheap (>$360) and still had to pay for bags (carryon and check in), food/drinks (anything that wasn't water), seat selection (or you get assigned to a middle seat); on both flights (to and from Denver), the landing made me sick to my stomach with how wobbly it was (I'd never had this before and I fly quite a bit)"
Cons: "Frontier has gone from a wonderful airline to a budget airline that is more interested in making a dollar than in their customer service. Not only do they charge for everything from your carry-on to water on the plane, their customer service is horrendous. I ended up paying an addition $115 each way in order to actually get a seat and bring my luggage. My flight was delayed for 3 hours out of Denver, which they blamed on weather. They made no announcement about why the flight was delayed and the gate agent, Kayla, was one of the rudest individual's I have every dealt with. After repeatedly asking, it was finally revealed that the delay was not directly related to weather, instead it was a "staffing issue." However they continued to call the issue "weather-related" so that they would not be responsible should the flight be cancelled. I used to love Frontier because they had an inexpensive round-trip ticket to Denver and was one of the few airlines that did not charge for ski equipment. Needless to say, I will never fly Frontier again - I would rather make numerous stops than be subjected to Frontier's business model and employees."
Pros: "The crew was amusing and friendly"
Cons: "the plane is so uncomfortable hard seats hard arm rests absolutely no leg room no place under seat to put your personal item I couldn't even "purchase" a beverage because once crammed in my space it was impossible to extract my bag to get money. The fare was low but by the time you pay for every additional charge. not a bargain I can not believe that you expect people to be caged in these tiny paralyzing seats. what are you thinkg?"
Cons: "There was no mention of a delay while boarding but it took an extra 40 minutes to get started. There were storms in dc and our plane had to be redirected to a different airport. We were not given accurate information or updated with any frequency. We would be told more information is coming in 15 minutes, then sit for an hour and hear nothing. i could not update my driver that was at the original destination airport. While stuck on the plane at the new airport we were told we could not get off the plane or we would not be allowed back on and if we decided to get off and drive we could not get our checked bags. Snacks were not offered for hours and more than one flight attendant said they were out of everything and running out of water. When they finally offered food, full price was still the only option and they had everyone line up in the back of the plane, blocking both lavatories. Half way through the line we were told we could close the doors and prepare to take off and everyone remaining was sent back to their seat. We waited another half hour to actually take off."
