Pros: "As always the Delta crew was super friendly and helpful and made the trip very enjoyable."
Cons: "Everything was perfect"

Pros: "I like the comfortable seats and the entertainment feature found on every seat."
Cons: "Not much. Delta is superior"

Pros: "I liked that is was a short flight"
Cons: "Plan was old. Seats not comfortable. Plane not clean. Flight attendants not attentive. A lady stored her carry-on on the floor in front of her and she was in the emergency row! Attendant walked by before takeoff and said nothing! Really?!"

Pros: "Even though they were just serving water and coffee. The attendant took it upon himself to retrieve the Ginger Ale i requested!"
Cons: "The seats are tight. but hey its an airplane, what can i expect!"

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"

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: "Boarded quickly and we made up plenty of time when we were only 15 mins late for take off."
Cons: "Baggage broke our baby stroller. Banged up, heavy deep scratches, and won’t lock properly nor will it release the brake phone portly where one wheel won’t unlock without much luck. Waiting to see how they correct this very expensive issue. And the vegan tapas option for food was not good at all. Ended up staying hungry for the duration of the flight. But my wife enjoyed her turkey sandwich."

Pros: "Nice crew, clean plane"
Cons: "Stuck in hot plane for an hour because of plane traffic. Not really deltas fault but c’mon"

Pros: "Awesomeness"

Pros: "Quick and easy."

Pros: "I loved flying delta comfort. I’m going to do it more often."

Pros: "On time. Seat upgraded seat to Delta Comfort plus, courteous flight crew, music before take off and landing."

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"

Cons: "Almost an hour late leaving the gate."

Pros: "Upgrade to ComfortPlus"

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: "Great airline stewards"
Cons: "Suggestion- Overhead bin should be assigned to the seat the person is seated in."

Pros: "All good"

Pros: "the plane was large, we departed on time, the flightcrew was extra friendly and attentive"
Cons: "Seat were tight and the upgrade fees and not affordable"

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 food that was served was good. The crew was attentive and nice ."
Cons: "Comfort seats didn’t seem like much different than reg seats. Didn’t like the cattle call boarding process at lax ."

Pros: "They must deliver my missing bag on top most priority."
Cons: "All four checked baggages received up to Mumbai. I handed over to domestic jet airways all four bags as per the system at Mumbai. But at the end I received only three baggages at Ahmedabad. I informed jet airways about one missing bag. They have acknowledged it and the missing bag was to arrive at Ahmedabad in the next flight. I am still waiting for the missing bag."

Pros: "The plane went where it was supposed to go."

Cons: "The crew forgot to turn the heater on in -3°F creating a situation where the lavatory water lines froze. This caused a two hour delay which made me miss the second leg. Because I missed the second leg I was put on the very last flight out of ATL and got to spend Xmas eve in the airport."

Cons: "Haven't made it yet... still on standby in later flight"

Pros: "The temp"
Cons: "It was too hot."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing. Delta is the best airline in North America"

Pros: "Everything went smoothly."

Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Comfort"

Cons: "Delayed boarding as the first flight of the day"

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: "Great!"
Cons: "Great!"

Pros: "flight was on time, food was good"
Cons: "entertainment was not working, not enough legroom"

Pros: "Flight departed and arrived on time"
Cons: "Long time standing in line. People are confused by zone boarding. Stood 30 to 40 minutes in line."

Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "The entertainment on the app, bring back the good old tv's on the flight"

Pros: "The first flight was fine. On time and the crew was very nice."
Cons: "The second flight was not okay. We had to switch planes after we were in an ready to leave. Over a two hour delay and lots of confusion , we finally got to our destination."

Pros: "When I finally got on a flight (see what I didn't like), the crew was very helpful and the flight was comfortable."
Cons: "When I checked in online, I received boarding passes for the first two legs of the trip, but was told to see a gate agent in Amsterdam for the boarding pass for that flight. It turns out that there was a problem, attributed by one of the KLM staff that I talked with to "a communication problem between Delta and KLM." As a result, I was finally given a stand-by boarding pass. Since the flight was full, I was denied boarding. After hours of trying to figure this out, the KLM staff put me on a flight for the next day and organized a stay at an airport hotel. The KLM staff were very nice, but it seemed to take a very long time to figure this out. They also failed to note that the denial of boarding in the records, which caused a problem in my return flight. The upshot: I missed a follow-on flight to Budapest and had to pay a huge rebooking fee for that missed flight. I also missed a day of my vacation."

Pros: "No problems curling up against the bulkhead and going to sleep. Crew was very considerate about not broadcasting messages to awaken travelers during this overnight flight."
Cons: "Was a bit warm but in a full plane what can you expect?"

Cons: "Asked for hot tea but what I got was barely tepid."

Pros: "First class stewardess was excellent."

Cons: "Seat seemed to have limited ability to recline."

Cons: "I felt singled out by the gate agents for this leg of the flight. The gate agent called me out twice - once just to check if my carry on fit into the sample size container. Then she did it again when we were boarding. I know she knew she'd already asked me before. Because afterwards, she tried to play it off, laughing and saying "I'd already asked you, didn't it". My carry on fit with ease. There were people with larger suitcases all around me but she continuously singled me out."

Pros: "Well after going through a terrible storm to get to the airport we were given a opportunity to up grade to First Class for a very reasonable rate. That was great."

Pros: "Row 19 on a 737ER is great for room, as long as you don't plan on reclining (I rarely do in a daytime flight)"
Cons: "A little overcautious regarding seating the cabin crew because of possible turbulence, but better safe than sorry, I suppose. However, it is a common occurrence on this particular leg, so don't board knowing you might need to take a "break" before you get to Atlanta."

Pros: "Seats, video and overall comfort are all very nice on the new 900's."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Glad we made it back."
Cons: "Flight could have been on time. Attendants in the airline could have communicated much better to give update on delay, but they did not give any information despite several times getting up to ask questions at the main check-in. Many of the passengers were very discouraged. Plane left nearly 2 hours late due to an unclear maintenance issue, paperwork and also no fuel put in the plane until all passengers we on board."

Cons: "American is poorly prepared for day long delays."

Cons: "No food or beverage service during covid-19"

Pros: "The flight time are on time ."
Cons: "Good entertainment on broad"

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Everything."

Pros: "Seating, nice personnel"
Cons: "Long layover in Chicago"

Cons: "Be on time. It left 2 hours late causing much stress and inconvenience"

Pros: "The announcements were clear and the captain did not mumble! Not sure what happened at the airport but we had issues with ground crew not coming to help park us. The captain made sure we were informed and it didn’t really add to much to our time."

Pros: "Flight attendants were excellent. Communication from the flight deck was good as well"

Pros: "Leaving on time"
Cons: "Snack selection could have been better. Gluten free options."

Pros: "The ground personal and flight crews did everything they could do make up for the delays."
Cons: "The numerous delays The small aircraft with overhead bins that couldn't handle what I always carry on normal airplanes. The plane didn't have entertainment Missing plug ins that most airplanes have today."

Pros: "Comfy seats and legroom in first class"
Cons: "Expected more than cookies for food in first class."

Pros: "One of the few non-stop flights between Seattle and Philadelphia. Timing is perfect if you can sleep on a red-eye flight. Fairly empty flight. enough empty seats to move and stretch out."
Cons: "No entertainment center built-in to the seats. On board WiFi can be used to access movies and other entertainment on the your own device but make sure your battery is charged and you have an external battery also since the seats don't have power. I tried to sleep but it is not easy for me to fall sleep when the seat back reclines only 3 inches so I didn't have luck taking a nap. Conclusion: I am not taking this flight any more. I will go back to taking will switch back to flying Delta even though there are no direct flights."

Pros: "by airlines"
Cons: "flying next day trough LAX"

Pros: "nothing"
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: "Horrible landing. Also-landed early and srive around for 20 min with no announcement from cockpit"

Cons: "3 hours late leaving Dublin, with poor communicstion on the monitors as to gate info. not to mention the lateness."

Pros: "Food - What can I say about pretzels except "Okay"?!"

Pros: "The crew did try to make us feel comfortable considering the air challenges"
Cons: "The aircraft was extremely hot and it took a extraordinary long time to resolve the issue. Dont understand why the aircraft was not checked prior to the flight so alternate plans could be made. Upon connecting the crew in the terminal and at the gate was not very accommodating. Very disappointed with American airlines and this experience"

Pros: "Nada."
Cons: "I have never been treated as poorly as I was by the old biddy that physically took the guitar out of my hands as I was trying to board the plane today. I travel as a professional musician at least once a week and I’ve never been threatened with arrest for having an instrument on my person."

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: "crew friendly"

Pros: "Dreamliner plane"
Cons: "Terrible service from get go which continued when landing in Melbourne with hopeless Qantas."

Pros: "Upgrade"
Cons: "No food"

Pros: "Great staff. Arrived very early. Smooth flight ."

Pros: "On time"

Pros: "Everything."
Cons: "No problems."

Pros: "."
Cons: "short flight herded like cattle. not much about it"

Cons: "The first plane was broken and the pilot kept coming to brief the passwngers that it was broken but it may be fixed and so on, it would have been better if he had just let the counter clerk say the plane is delayed due to maintenance. As a customer, i dont need all the rambling explanation every ten minutes about the issue. I was told that we could board another flight leaving in 30 minutes, so i went to that gate, crew was not there and we boarded the plane. We had to de- board and wait for the crew. After the crew showed up, the rest of the flight was pretty standard."

Pros: "Lost baggage"

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"

Cons: "Boarding took forever and I'm a Premium passenger."

Pros: "On time, upgraded at Dallas"

Cons: "Couldn't get my boarding pass. My name was wrong in your system, had to go to American Airlines desk for assistance and the attendant couldn't locate my name. There was a service attendant at the Alaskan airline service desk."

Pros: "Quick and very smooth flight, amazing flight attendants."
Cons: "Wish at least one drink/soda was free. Boarding line was so slow."

Pros: "Easy boarding, very nice crew. I would definitely recommend spending the extra for Priority, it is much faster."

Pros: "Flight was ontime and smooth. No issues boarding or debarking."
Cons: "Cheap plastic "mass transit train" style seats. Poor legroom. Borderline exorbitant fees for baggage and carry-on. Also weight on checked luggage was only 40lbs per piece while industry standard is 50lbs. Makes it difficult to share one suitcase between 2 people to save on baggage "fees"."

Pros: "Ease of getting on and off, direct flight home, free parking in Belleville."
Cons: "seats are ok for 2 hour flight"

Pros: "Fast and efficient!"
Cons: "Everything was great!"

Cons: "Uncomfortable seats, does not recline, even water is for sale."

Pros: "Seating assignment before the flight. Direct flights."
Cons: "Felt nickel and dimed to death by extra fees for trip insurance, luggage, and picking advanced seating. Ended up spending more than if we had just chose another airline."

Cons: "Old plane with fixed seats with very limited leg room which were not comfortable- broken window shades, scratched windows, & rattles everywhere made for a long flight. Crew was ok, I would fly again if the price was enough of a savings"

Pros: "Flight left and arrived on time. Boarding was OK."
Cons: "Not even water provided on flight. I miss amenities."

Cons: "Did not purchase any food and there was no entertainment offered"

Pros: "It's convenient and inexpensive for one of my regular destinations. Though, over the years, I've experienced a few cranky employees at the Punta Gorda location. Just the opposite in Asheville, where friendly was apparently invented."

Cons: "2 hour delay, plus a filthy plane with bloody toilet seat, completely bathroom fail."

Cons: "Four hour delay and charging for on flight drinks including water"

Cons: "Two planes of passengers in gate area delayed takeoff without warning or information."

Pros: "It was so fun to have a flight attendant that had a great sense of humor. She kept us in stitches throughout the flight."

Pros: "Not a thing"
Cons: "Didn't like the fact that they canceled the entire flight on the day of the flight so I had to pay for a last minute ticket which was much more expensive!"

Pros: "The stewardess was great on trip up there and back!"
Cons: "Little bit bumpy ride in some spots"

Pros: "On time. Easy boarding and off loading. Nice staff"
Cons: "The seat. The people. The drinks. The efficiency. The price."

Pros: "Airline was great. Told us right away they were only going to do one drink service so we could order two. Left on time and had no issues. Would definitely fly with them again. Even though you have to pay to check a bag, it's still a better deal than any other airline out there. People need to stop complaining about the extra fees, do you want cheap or not."
Cons: "Nothing. Was exactly what I expected for a $35.00 flight."

Pros: "Staff was wonderful!!"

Cons: "Flight was delayed an hour for "paperwork". Can't be helped by the crew, but an administrative errors are just as bad."

Cons: "Delayed. Unprofessional. Attendant laughing while reciting safety announcement."

Pros: "Leaving Bellingham great service wheel chair service great nice leg roome friendly service"
Cons: "Return flight no leg roome well chair pick up in Bellingham none existing especially the long ramp"

Pros: "Great price"
Cons: "Bad comfort, I'll pay more next time for better comfort."

Cons: "The flight was delayed over an hour. Because of that, I missed my appointment."

Pros: "We arrived safely"
Cons: "Late take off with no explanation No on board entertainment Other isle we sat in was even more cramped than the others."

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: "Everything"
Cons: "Perfect"

Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Waiting on the tarmac after loading was too long. There were so many young children on this flight. Loading bags? Really? 1 hour late after boarding on time? Not cool."

Cons: "They charged me extra for a carryon, my flight was delayed, and they made me miss my connection by holding us on the tarmac for 40 minutes. Two hours waiting in line to rebook the flight for 3pm the next day. No hotel or transportation recompense. United made an enemy for life."

Cons: "45 minute delay due to passenger self-injury, then turned around half-way across the Atlantic due to another passenger medic."

Pros: "We made good time, and the crew was attentive and friendly."
Cons: "My seat kept reclining on its own and had no headrest. Takeoff was rough, even for Albuquerque."

Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "No movie anymore."

Cons: "Baggage fees, food fees WiFi fees"

Pros: "Breakfast"
Cons: "Pilots driving waaaay to fast"

Pros: "Good landing, an I arrived earlier."

Pros: "It was on time and boarding was very efficient. I was seated near the back, but the middle seat was open. I appreciated the additional space. It was a nice perk for having to sit in the rear of the plane."

Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "First, our flight was cancelled and they texted us with an alternative flight leaving a day later, with a 9 hour layover! Um, excuse me? Since this was a weekend trip we would have had to turn around and get back on a flight back to SF a few hours later. I called and they didn't even offer the option to refund the ticket! I finally got us on an alternative flight leaving earlier after waiting for 30 minutes to speak with a supervisor because the person I initially spoke with had no power to do anything to help. We ended up flying Alaska Airlines on the way there and I wish we had originally booked through them because the way back was AWFUL. They wouldn't seat my partner and I together because we were flying Economy class, which they reminded us of repeatedly when I complained. The agents claimed they had no power to do anything because of the computer system which randomly selects your seats. I asked what about people traveling with small children and they didn't seem to have an answer. Oh yeah, that's another thing. As if we got a better deal than with any other airline out there after all the bag fees. The Economy class/the majority of the people flying have no carry on allowance. By the way, when we got on the flight we were able to sit next to each other because the seats next to us weren't even occupied. Ridiculous. Never flying United again. I've been bumped off of flights and had bad experiences before but this was the last straw for me."

Cons: "Did not have the free united entertainment on wifi. Only offered direct tv for a fee"

Pros: "Quiet and comfortable"
Cons: "No movie or tv"

Pros: "Enjoyed the stroopwaffels that were handed out as snacks."

Pros: "The window seat"

Cons: "Rude crew- not service oriented"

Pros: "Very friendly staff"
Cons: "Upset about not being allowed a carry on luggage."

Pros: "Check in was super easy. Seats are tiny. The screens on the backs of the seats are annoying, with nothing worth watching."

Pros: "Horrible"
Cons: "Everything"

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: "I had flown from Honolulu to Denver arriving at 6:30 am this morning having paid $25 for a checked bag. So had to get luggage and turn right around to check-in for Denver to Cedar Rapids and pay another $25 with the same airline because I wasn't able to check all the way through! So I feel I was charged double"

Cons: "Flight delayed due to weather. Rebooking was a zoo, had to pay for hotel room and worst of all waited over an hour at baggage claim to get our bags back. It's taking us 2 days to get from Albuquerque to Austin."

Pros: "Everyone was quite friendlly and personable, especially our flight attendants."
Cons: "It was hard to hear the captain over the speaker. The inflight entertainment was expensive"

Cons: "2hrs late"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Late, missed my connection, have to fly out in the morning. Have 3 hrs to sleep & be back at the airport."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "I was warned about booking with this airline but I had to see it for myself before listening to others now I wish I had done just that. First of all, outdated planes, no Tv screens, expensive wifi. How is it only $3 one way and then $5 the other especially after making us wait for 3 hours and 22 minutes extra. Exhausting flights both to Albuquerque from Houston and from Houston to Boston. Poor communication. Poor planning ahead. Very dissatisfied. Going with Jet Blue from now on. They never disappoint, even if there was a delay in flight."

Cons: "Water only"

Pros: "All the United personnel from gate agents to pilot and crew were very nice and pleasant and friendly. They seemed to take pride in their work."
Cons: "I am tall (6' 4") and the seats are still too cramped. Would a 1/2" more really lose millions of dollars per year. Stop treating people like sardines."

Cons: "Overall horrible experience round trip. Issues with the planes caused delays leaving and caused my flight home to be cancelled. Flew American home. Will never fly Intied again. EVER!"

Pros: "We departed on time and arrived at least half an hour early."
Cons: "The seats lacked those tabs on the side of the headrest that fold forward to help hold your head while sleeping and little leg room."

Cons: "No outlet to charge my phone"

Cons: "- There wasn't space for my bag to go overhead - There were no options for food or entertainment - My seat was very cramped"

Cons: "Seats could provide lower-lumbar support."

Pros: "Had a great seat on the plane Missed my next flight the service people were very helpful getting me connections to my destination"
Cons: "delayed because of weather in Denver"

Pros: "Everything was great we just had to sit for mechanical issues. Announcing ETAs is crucial for those of us getting picked up"

Pros: "On time, ahead of schedule"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything, United blows"

Pros: "Biggest hassle of many flights these days is dealing with on board luggage. If people insist on bring all luggage into the cabin, they should be required to have one piece under the seat and only one overhead."
Cons: "Drives me nuts to find there is no gate available when we arrive."

Cons: "Seated in last row no recline on chair!"

Pros: "These days we can all admit flying is not what it used to be before 9/11. It's still professional and curtious, but the awareness and appreciation of passengers has dwindled. Stewards and stewardesses go through the motions and do just what they need to do not more. The pilots got the plane to its destination well within the time sometimes even a half an hour early. But sometimes being that early means sitting on the tarmac for 40 minutes which cut it close to missing my next flight. Flights used to offer blankets if passengers were cold. If the plane is not full they do allow passengers to move seats to be more comfortable. The complementary beverage is still always a nice touch but seconds aren't offered and cups are often taken before they're finished. It would be nice to see our country's airlines go back to a little more awareness and appreciation for one another, and work to improving their levels to above satisfactory. The flight was supposed to have entertainment viewable on personal devices but going through the app to select something was told this flight didn't have access. Overall it was satisfactory."
Cons: "It was a little too cold on the plane. Blankets weren't offered. The food while it looked delicious needed to be warmed and the only option was coffee for warming it."

Pros: "Smooth flight once we got in the air."
Cons: "Didn't like the delay 2-3hours"

Pros: "very nice flight attendant. Very helpful to have my son and I sit together. Gave me a cup of coffee when i asked. very friendly as well."

Pros: "Quick flight back home, crew understood my needs of having to move 18 days from acl replacement surgery."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I had problems from the beginning of my flight to the end. My plane got canceled because they did not have enough Staff. I wasted a whole day of my vacation, waiting on flights"

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: "I think Topeka was her name. She was a very good flight attendant"
Cons: "The gate changed after we checked in which was only 30 mins before. Almost missed the flight because we were waiting at the wrong gate. Earlier and accurate description of gate is what is needed. Or someone from united to visit the other gate and announce there is a change to help people out"

Cons: "They purchased us for carrier on ridiculous"

Pros: "Great customer service."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The frontier airlines associates at the check in desk could have let me check in. I was there 45 mins before the flight was supposed to leave at 6:20 because of a flat, otherwise I would have been there much sooner. Then the flight was delayed until 7. I had more then enough time to get to my flight"

Pros: "Giant fat guy sitting in the middle seat next to me!"
Cons: "Not being delayed?"

Pros: "Wonderful. To have a direct flight"

Pros: "Quick boarding, efficient out of the gate."
Cons: "Late, no clerk at the boarding gate to ask, and the airport had a computer glitch that prevented the gate, the flight or even he airline to post!"

Cons: "Frontier airlines delayed and then cancelled and offered no help with re booking so I could make it to my family. I had to purchase a brand new ticket with s better airlines to be able to get home for my mom's cancer treatments."

Cons: "Expensive on flight food and beverage"

Pros: "The flight was on time, the airplane was new and clean, and the seats were comfortable. We enjoyed the crew and our bag was waiting for us when we got to baggage claim. What more could one ask for on a no frills flight?"
Cons: "Everything exceeded expectations for a low fare no frills carrier."

Pros: "The airline staff are great about boarding and exiting swiftly, which makes it convenient, especially for any delays."
Cons: "The lack there of options for flights to my destination makes it difficult, especially when the layover then becomes an entire day of just waiting."

Pros: "The crew seemed cheerful."
Cons: "Slightly disorganized during boarding. Delayed departure. Miss informed about arrival time. Extremely unfortable seating. Food is more snacks than solid nutrition and even the snacks were hardly dispensed. Cabin became over heated, could smell jet fuel."

Cons: "Price is great and flight earlier than planned. The attendants were friendly and helpful."

Pros: "Low price, good communication through texts and emails."
Cons: "The cabin was just toooooo cold."

Pros: "The one moment when someone attempted to help me before a coworker told him to stop because they had “too much to do”"
Cons: "I can’t remember the last time I had so much trouble with a flight. I do remember when frontier used to be a decent airline but now it just feels like a subpar soviet airline. Despite the fact that no one seemed to be aware of what was going on and making everyone with electronic passes wait an extra 30 minutes, my checked bag (which cost more than the flight) arrived with minimal damage and I’m still in one piece."

Cons: "They had to fly in 2 plains to try and get us out. They didn’t offer meal vouchers until 51/3 hours into the delay."

Pros: "the flight attendants were fantastic"
Cons: "Very very late, no updates from the airline."

Pros: "Price was great"
Cons: "but seats are very close together - not a tall person but sitting up straight my knees hit the seat in front of me. Uncomfortable fit!"

Pros: "great. Base price"
Cons: "Seats were like bus seats. Plastic"

Pros: "The two gentleman flight attendants were quite friendly and entertaining. They welcomed every single person with a smile and a greeting. They laughed and joked a bit on the intercom, keeping us entertained while we waited for the flight inspection paperwork to arrive."
Cons: "I do not like that Frontier seems to "nickle and dime" everything. I feel like at least a beverage should be complimentary with my flight, but every single bag, beverage snack comes with a price on Frontier."

Cons: "Got here early, sat on runway for 20 minutes before a gate was available which put us in at the actual time. Then had to wait another 20-30 minutes for bags at baggage claim area."

Pros: "Same. Plus free water. On time arrival."
Cons: "Hard seats."

Pros: "The boarding was quick and well managed, the flight was flawless and The Pilot told us the CoPilot, Bonnie was going to get us in early, we were 40 minutes early, and that included a little maneuvering around some storm clouds. Didn't try the food and missed the entertainment."

Pros: "Second agent on the phone who provided a refund"
Cons: "Cancelled flight with no options for re-booking for 4 days"

Pros: "Connecting flight cancelled They don't fly there again for three days. no arrangements with other airlines. Had to buy a new ticket on another airline Hadn't consider the implication of flying a small independent airline when I bought the cheap ticket."

Pros: "The pilot took our safety into account first and foremost."
Cons: "When we rerouted to Kansas City, we had no real information from Frontier. Hours after we landed, a customer/flier called customer service in order to receive any definite information about getting a flight back to Cedar rapids. Different information was given to my parents who were waiting to pick me up in CR. They were forced to find a hotel to stay in that night. This was on Christmas Day. I am still confused as to why we had to land at KCI instead of Des Moines, Madison, Quad Cities/Moline, etc. Plus, it was heavily suggested by us, the customers, that Frontier offer us food after 2 1/2 hours of waiting in the gate we were sequestered to (security had left for the day). We finally flew back to CR at 3:30 AM with a 4:30 arrival time."

Pros: "Par for the course, another horrible flight with Frontier. Swear I would never fly them again got tricked by their cheap flight now an hour and half flight turn to 4.5 hours and I'm stuck 5 hours away from where I'm supposed to be with no word from Frontier what is going to happen. Hate and disgusted AGAIN with Frontier:("

Pros: "Crew and counter people were was great, that's about all. Had to sit on plane for about 90 minutes after reaching destination before we could get to gate. Return trip was over 4 hours late leaving. Was given a $10 food voucher, after I had already eaten. The lateness on both ends resulted in more expense for me."

Pros: "Flight was ontime"
Cons: "I don't like being nickeled and dimed for every little thing, including picking your own uncomfortable seat and a drink of water. I would rather pay for a pricier ticket upfront. If Frontier wasn't the only direct flight to my most often destination, I would never use it again. I also don't like the limitations in their schedule out of my market."

Cons: "Very uncomfortable for a long flight. No leg room and seats are too erect, do not tilt back at all. could not get in a comfortable position. Would only fly with Frontier again, if it were a short flight."

Cons: "misled on carry on costs. tried to get bundle but employees could not articulate Make sure you add in costs of bags and then compare....."

Pros: "Flight boarded, left and arrived on time. Easy."

Cons: "Upon arriving to the airport none of the kiosks were working- very chaotic. A long line prevented us from checking in within the 45 minute timeframe Frontier requires so we missed our flight. Since they don't sister with any other flight companies our options were to purchase new tickets through another airline ($950) rent a car and drive 12 hours to get home ($450) or wait 2 days until the next flight out. The moral of the story is: you get what you pay for!!!!"

Pros: "The prices for the flight were very affordable"
Cons: "On the way in it took about 40 minutes to get into the gate and on the way out boarding took a very long time"

Pros: "Arriving at Denver, NO gates available...we sat on the tarmac about 1 hour, with the seat belt light lites on. Captain told us there would be a delay until a gate opened up. He, nor any of the stewardesses made any other contact for at least 1/2 hour. Finaly, the captain said we could use the restrooms as we waited. NO contact from the flight crew, or other contact from the Captain until we were finally led to a gate. Communication is everything. It would have eased the temperaments of the passengers a great deal to have more updates, and even the presence of a stewardess. NOTHING>"

Cons: "Delayed over two hours on each flight"

Pros: "Direct flight option"
Cons: "2 hour delays on both legs of flight. Paying for carry on"

Pros: "I enjoyed how easy it was to board the plane, the crew was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "I wish they would get Wi-Fi on the plane so you can use your electronics to help pass time. Also more of a variety on the menu"

Cons: "Paying for drinks."

Pros: "location"
Cons: "never depart or arrive on time. can be hours late for no reason other than unorganized"

Cons: "When you check in they charge you $125.00 for your bags that sucks will never fly Frontier again"

Pros: "Crews were polite"
Cons: "No TSA Pre-Check Not even complimentary soft drinks!"

Cons: "Delays with no explanation, info screens not updated, 3 hours late. Horrible experience"

Pros: "The flight crew was fun especially the male flight attendant.Also liked the duration of the flight."
Cons: "No complaints."

Cons: "Late boarding, flight was very bumpy/unsteady, had to wait upon arrival before unloading for about 40 minutes"

Pros: "New seats surprising comfortable, but don't recline. Leg room adequate (I'm 6'1"). Flights on time."

Pros: "That we eventually arrived"
Cons: "That we arrived 3.5 hours after we were supposed to"

Pros: "No vegetarian options or non-gluten options for food."

Pros: "the low far"
Cons: "Again - the high fees for bags … then - this flight was really bad - the kid behind me (not Frontier's fault) kept banging that stupid METAL tray against my PLASTIC seat which - was pretty miserable. So - to settle my nerves rather than turn around and yell at the disinterested mom … I purchase (for $6.99) a beer - first - the brand I asked for was unavailable - then the alternate beer was WARM! - The attendant explained they were loaded onto the plane that way. So - I asked for a cup of ice to pour the beer over. Yep - $6.99 for warm beer."

Cons: "Echoing every other review. Completely misleading to charge someone on the spot for a carry on, when there was no indication that would happen when I booked my flight. I would have never gone through Frontier if I knew about all the hidden fees. Extremely disappointed. Also, $60 to have a backback that fits under the seat? Really? Also, you have to pay for a tiny cup of water on the flight. Everything costs money with Frontier, and it's a joke,."

Pros: "Easy quick boarding"
Cons: "Seats were tiny with very little room. No complimentary snack or drinks and a very annoying pilot that thought he was a comedian."
