Airline reviews

Pros: "The crew really was amazing. Friendly. Communicative."

Cons: "There should not be a pay wall around the internet in today's day and age"

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: "The snacks were limited. They only had cheez-its and no cookies."

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."

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: "After we boarded and were already sitting in our sits the stewardess came and removed our bags from the overhead compartment for another person with a larger bag! We ended up storing our bags under the sits in-front. The way it was done it was rude and with no consideration for our comfort."

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"

Pros: "Nothing"
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 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: "The crew members were very friendly"
Cons: "Coach seats still a little too small. Always bump the person next to me"

Pros: "I will always fly Delta. I have tried other airlines and they don't conmpare to Delta's service"

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: "Horrible experience! Flight was delayed over an hour with no announcement. Seat was reassigned from front aisle seat to rear window Seat. Fortunately, it was a short fkight."

Pros: "Seats and crew were fabulous and the flight itself was very smooth ."
Cons: "This particular plane had no entertainment system whatsoever, big disappointment."

Pros: "The crew was friendly, relaxed, made everything seem like a breeze"

Pros: "Courteous staff, boarding process was okay once it got started."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 1.5 hours. Very turbulent flight. Tight seats."

Cons: "Time to bring in dual class flights!"

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: "Friendly people and clean plane"
Cons: "They lost my luggage, I hope it shows up shortly"

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."

Cons: "Seats are very small."

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: "But the crew were awesome!"
Cons: "Flight delayed then gate was changed, while I was using lavatory and did not hear changes! Then boarding was confusing as the intercom wasn't working. Overall poor."

Pros: "Good seats."

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."

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: "Everything was great."
Cons: "Nothing. It was smooth and efficient."

Pros: "My flight attendant always smiled and was very hospitable."
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "There was a three hour delay for missing crew."

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 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: "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: "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: "Quick, efficient"

Pros: "The fact we arrived safely"
Cons: "Long time to claim baggage, three hours delay, uncomfortable seats"

Pros: "Upgrade"
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"
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "I liked arriving safely, although we were an hour and a half late"
Cons: "American switched pilots last minute, so all passengers sat waiting in our cramped seats for about 15 minutes while pilots got situated in the cockpit. Then it was discovered a preflight mechanical check hadn't been done. So we all sat for another HOUR waiting for the mechanics to arrive and do their work. The flight attendants were unpleasant and rude."

Pros: "everything fine"
Cons: "having to gate-check our hand luggage"

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

Pros: "I appreciated the interactive screen on the backseat, which provided me entertainment watching Doctor Who and playing Angry Birds. I also liked that the power outlet to charge my phone was more accessible on the backseat instead of below my seat, which is normally where I find it."
Cons: "I did not appreciate that there was a device mounted below 2 of the 3 backseats in my row. Those devices cut into at least a few inches of valuable room to store a carry-on bag. At worst, I've seen 1 seat have such a device, so it was quite disappointing to see 2 seats with them, including mine."

Pros: "On time"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Although I should now be at my final destination, I still have 11 hrs of travel to go. My flights were changed three times. The first cancelation caused me to buy new tickets at a higher price I had originally purchased them at. We were redirected from Kayak to Vayamo and they have no sense of customer service. Horrible"

Pros: "."
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."

Pros: "I think they were holding the plane for a connection flight arrival."

Pros: "On time, upgraded at Dallas"

Pros: "Boarding was simple"
Cons: "For my whole three hour flight a child kicked my chair, i asked the mother politely if she could get her to stop. the woman didn't even apologize and the kicking continued for three hours."

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: "Being able to see movies for free was a real plus since the flight from Australia to Wash.DC is so long."
Cons: "Everything OK."

Pros: "Boarding was impossible! The line was longer than the jet bridge itself and we had to wait after being called for a 1/2 hour."

Pros: "Had row all to myself--that's a rarity"
Cons: "1hr departure delay"

Pros: "Older aircraft, seat cushion was on its last legs regarding comfort as I sunk to the frame of the seat. No onboard entertainment on the headrest as compared with our outgoing flight."
Cons: "The seat discomfort and the lack of entertainment."

Cons: "Significantly late & rude, as usual."

Pros: "Clean, friendly staff, great baggage tracking. Smooth flight."
Cons: "Overcrowded, but that's the same no matter where. Usual rude frequent fliers, who also usually take up all the overhead space."

Pros: "Getting off of that plane."
Cons: "I understand delays happen and are sometimes out of your control. However, customer service is something that you can, should, and must control. I witnessed a lack of self control of the American employees (including a Supervisor) and every point of my trip w/your customers. I was embarrassed for the American executive team."

Pros: "Much more legroom on this flight, even though it was a smaller aircraft."
Cons: "Gate agent seemed a bit overwhelmed. Helpful, but not overly friendly. In stark contrast to my earlier flight from Charlotte to Memphis, where the gentleman was extremely pleasant and cheerful."

Cons: "There was no one at the gate to keep us updated about the flight delay"

Pros: "Price and schedule."
Cons: "Do not like how this or any airlines board passengers."

Pros: "once I made it on it was smooth"
Cons: "plane in cos had to refuel so we were 20 late leaving and I bearly made it to next flight in dallas they were closing doors, young people ran but im old so could not move as fast, it was a challenge to not miss flight"

Pros: "Easy boarding"
Cons: "Strange kid sitting next to me"

Cons: "Flight landed late. Had to rush to get on med plane"

Pros: "Although we had to sit on tarmac, we still made our transfer on time."
Cons: "Seats very uncomfortable."

Cons: "The boarding time"

Pros: "Least expensive and quickest trip"
Cons: "Not always available on return trip"

Cons: "Rude crew- not service oriented"

Cons: "Seperated me from my partner after we originally had assigned seats. Middle seats non reclining - horrible"

Pros: "Horrible"
Cons: "Everything"

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: "WIFI allowed access to imessage"
Cons: ""Free" movies and TV didn't work"

Pros: "Thought it was cool with the screens in the seat even though I didn't use them"
Cons: "Seats were cramped and the power outlet was to hard to reach since I couldn't see it. I ended up just using my battery pack."

Cons: "Very limited free entertainment"

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: "Great flight friendly person sitting beside me, would like seat towards front but my husband likes sitting in back , we had seats in row 27 & window seat for him he likes looking out. It was very enjoyable. Thank you"

Pros: "Friendly staff and working equipment wins!!"

Pros: "The flight and price was consistent. United is a great company and the tickets were on time."
Cons: "My requested seat was changed. I felt as if there is no certainty and confidence in choosing a seat."

Pros: "It was a crowded flight home, I knew that when I checked in online. I was forced to check my bag plane-side...to be picked up at baggage claim upon our arrival. Inconvenient to say the least. The crew announced there was in-flight wi-fi {available for purchase, of course} only to come back on and apologize that the wi-fi was down for this flight. The crew did do beverage service, but never made it to the last three rows of passengers. Overall, just not the type of customer service I am used to from other airlines. I chose this flight based on the price. I don't think I'll chose United again in the near future."

Pros: "On time, ahead of schedule"

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

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: "The flight itself was ok."
Cons: "They have lost my bags. I won't receive them till Friday."

Pros: "I received my e boarding pass the night before"
Cons: "The boarding pass that was sent the night before had the incorrect gate and no seat assignment. I spoke w THREE agents at checkin and they all sent me to the (wrong) gate- C25 and wouldn't give me a seat assignment. That is a long way to go w a scooter and a bag, only to learn the correct gate is B4. I was the last to board, there was no bin space left. it shouldn't be so complicated."

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

Pros: "Customer service"
Cons: "No problem"

Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "All"

Pros: "Same as above."
Cons: "None"

Pros: "Part of personal device show of "By the Sea""
Cons: "San Fran to BWI unable to view end. Hubby watched Olympics I refused to pay for two devices."

Pros: "I like that you guys offer the free wifi and entertainment. You guys should offer headphones as well. I had no idea that was offered until I got on the plane."

Cons: "2.5 hour delay. No working bathrooms. Couldn't hear the tv and headphones that they gave out were useless."

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"

Cons: "flight was delayed for over 5 hours and gate was changed over 6 times"

Pros: "assigned seating"
Cons: "Hate the lack of leg room."

Pros: "Over all it was a great flight aside from the rain delay but that's Mother Nature for you"

Pros: "My flight was delayed by a day due to the engine problem."
Cons: "Got a voucher for a hotel that was of very poor quality. I made my own rebooking. Otherwise I probably would never leave ABQ."

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: "the crew handed out complimentary headsets which was nice"

Pros: "I enjoyed that this aircraft had in-seat entertainment displays."

Pros: "Nice flight attendants"
Cons: "Cramped seating, seat would not recline at all. Departure delayed due to poor airplane maintenance."

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: "Nothing"
Cons: "-Was a United flight despite being billed as Lufthansa, I always try and avoid United as I have had bad experiences in the past. -Was unable to choose seats online. -Upon check in was told that only middle seats were available for my partner and I away from each other even though we showed up 6 hours early in order to get good seats as we couldn't check in online. -We then paid extra to get seats next to each other (250 bucks) and the entertainment systems in those seats were broken. -When we told the flight attendant staff they said there was nothing they could do and were rude. -When trying to explain the situation to United Customer service they were also rude."

Cons: "Flight was cancelled after waiting 16 hrs at airport. Service lines were all the way out of terminal. When I was next in line to speak with someone the employee told me he was closing his counter because he had been there all day . Very disappointed in the way United handled it. Still have not received anything from them other than a refund."

Pros: "The food at ohare"
Cons: "Having to wait an additional 6 hours for my flight home."

Pros: "Was ok."

Pros: "The length of the flight was acceptable."
Cons: "My seat was moved futher back in the plan 34D, seats were smaller, knee space tight, the air back here was unpleasant (b.o.). Very noisy. The stewardess did not know how to operate the entertainment screen, finally she said I needed headphones, once I was hooked up volume up High I still couldn't hear the movie, to much outside noise, I thought the guy behind me was shaving. The Asian snack was dreadful no beverage available for awhile."

Cons: "Absolutely no leg room. Much less than most major airlines."

Pros: "Wifi"
Cons: "Delayed boarding and agent confusion."

Cons: "Horrible costumers services I never Ever flight here"

Cons: "I called three times before going to the airport to ask about impending storm and ask if United could put me on a later flight that day. NO HELP PROVIDED. Then my flight from Newark to PVD was cancelled as I suspected it would and I had to take a bus all the way to PVD. So now I plan on NEVER giving United business again."

Pros: "Flight was smooth flight and arrived early"

Pros: "Flights were on time! Flight attendants were really pleasant and both flights were really smooth despite some turbulence at times!"

Pros: "efficient boarding good information from pilot"
Cons: "arrival 45 minutes late"

Pros: "I have gotten used to the added costs for baggage. At least they didn't charge me for a seat assignment this time. The crew were nice and the flight went well."

Pros: "Everything went smoothly for the most part. Any chance you will get on flight wifi soon?"

Cons: "Lost bags"

Pros: "Getting off the plane was the best part"
Cons: "Babies crying kicking my seat screaming in my ear"

Cons: "seats"

Cons: "Same screaming infants. They were able to sleep but allowed to roam aisles."

Cons: "Plane was dirty, flight delayed, lost my bag, awful."

Pros: "On time, smooth landing, polite flight attendants"
Cons: "Seats, tray tables, pay for carry on"

Pros: "Despite DIA being closed the day before, we were only 35min late for departure, flight was without event and a timely arrival at DC. It may have been cheap, but you got what you paid for..."
Cons: "Bloody small seating, no refreshments."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "the crew was incredibly rude (to others and myself) the flight was delayed three hours and we weren't notified until we were supposed to board"

Pros: "It was fine--took off, polite crew, and landed safely. Can't complain about that."
Cons: "Our plane was delayed for over an hour. Picking up a bag from Frontier takes forever because you have to check what would otherwise be a carry-on. I wasn't aware of this as it was my first time flying with Frontier. Knowing that, I'd be able to schedule better. Don't love that they don't really give any refreshments or snacks."

Cons: "they cancelled the fligh on me - over booked"

Cons: "Your seats and absolutely terrible. What kind of an idiot designed them. Yes sure you added a few extra seats but the comfort level is horrible. I had so much back pain for sitting on those garden plastic chairs"

Pros: "Crew was fantastic, plane was very clean and new. I dont know how to answer the entertainment question since no entertainment was offered."
Cons: "Mechanical issue delayed flight for an hour, glad it was fixed. I wish the online confirmation was clearer, it looked like i had to pay extra for a seat i had already paid for. It would be an improvement if online confirmation made it clearer as I wasted about 20 min trying to just confirm."

Pros: "Dirt cheap flight. you get what you pay for. Outstanding flight crew. Check-in personnel really tried to get everyone checked in and to their flights on time. Because their is a fee for overhead baggage, they actually have less bags to deal with during the boarding process. I like that, but I wish my check-in bag was free as a result."
Cons: "-most uncomfortable airline seats I've ever sat in. -bring your own food and drink, because they charge for everything including water. -I have to pay to select a seat in the very back of the plane? Really? -At Denver, Frontier seems to send every flight out at the same time, so you literally have 7-10 different flights trying to check in during the same two hour window. Get there early and check in online."

Cons: "Cancelled and terrible customer service"

Pros: "Hello, Can you please let me know when I will receive a credit for my flight that was cancelled? Thank you, Kara"

Pros: "I had no idea I would have to pay $30 for a carry-on suitcase. That took me by surprise and soured the entire experience."

Pros: "...at least I got to see my family?"
Cons: "Air travel has been categorically unpleasant for a long, long while: this much is understood. Sometimes flights are late, or turbulent, or full of people you don't want to share your space with: that's all inevitable chance. I know all that; I'm sympathetic to all that. This was worse, and it was clearly their fault. That is: my flight suffered from resentment-inspiring discomforts, specifically due to how Frontier runs things. - They've finally found a seat spacing that discomfits even those of average size. I'm 5'8", and could find nowhere to put my body and my backpack that didn't crush one or both. - There's not nearly enough time to actually clean a plane between flights; that's understood. However: I'll happily wait the extra 10 minutes it takes to vacuum broken crackers off my chair and underseat. - Even the small courtesy of crackers and soda are subject to charge. COME ON. When my legs have been tingly since an hour into a cross-country flight, and my stuff covered with crumbs from the previous guests, trying to charge for all but water just feels extra-galling. TL;DR: unless you're a real light traveller on the compact side, or taking a short flight, the corners Frontier cuts are too tough to economize."

Pros: "Great flight, my seating was great and did not have to pay extra. Very clean."

Cons: "Having to sit on the plane for four hours in the same position of the seat."

Cons: "Frontier not only raised their baggage rates, but they failed to load the luggage of at least seven passengers onto a one-way flight."

Pros: "The crew and boarding. Since I paid for a better seat, I was in front of the line."
Cons: "My seat didn't recline even though I paid an extre $50 for a better seat. Seating is very uncomfortable for me if I can't recline my seat slightly. Seats need to be more ergonomically designed for comfort. Also, not music or TV. The old planes use to give you these choices. The new planes suck!!!!!"

Pros: "It left on time"
Cons: "Pay for snack and drink"

Pros: "Discounted fare"
Cons: "Nickel & dime for everything Called others up in the checkin line, who were late for their flight before us, causing us to be late and miss flight. Do yourself a favor. Pay a little more, and get a better flight."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The seats are horrible! It ruins the entire flight! Uuugh."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The seats are extremely thin, very closely positioned, absolutely everything is for a fee, so if you weren't exhausted from sitting, you were exhausted from getting nickel and dimed. I will stay away from any Frontier flights from now on."

Pros: "This trip was affordable and arrived on schedule! All I need"
Cons: "Baggage costs a little high"

Pros: "If you fly Fontier, you know you have to lay for bags. Nothing surprising there. Overall flight was good, price was great."

Pros: "Attempts to keep the plane on time"
Cons: "My seat was surrounded by trash - on the floor & wedged next to the seat. This was the result of attempting a quick turnaround after the inbound flight was late."

Cons: "2 grumpy stewardesses tiny back-of-seat pockets no snacks offered"

Pros: "INITIAL PRICE was cheap Crew was pleasant Boarding was easy."
Cons: "I was charged for everything. My carry on cost me $40 there and $30 back. I blame myself for not reading the fine print but come on. Chairs don't recline anymore. The "tray table" was a deep as my smartphone and only twice as long. I'm a 5'9" 180lbs male and i still felt cramped. No leg room or width of chair."

Cons: "No leg room In-flight sales (just add $.99 to the ticket and give free soda.)"

Pros: "Being able to change my seat"
Cons: "Rude attendant on the plane"

Pros: "Flight was direct which is good."
Cons: "Time of flights are limited. Need more options. Drinks on board are pricey I thought"

Pros: "Nice as it was a direct flight."
Cons: "Lured in by cheap price, then found out with all the bag fees, and if you want a drink on board you have paid the same price for an airline that has comfortable seats. The plane boarded 30 minutes early, which would have been fine if we had left early, but instead sat in the uncomfortable seats an extra 40 minutes until everyone made it to the plane. Last time with Frontier unless they are the only carrier gong to my destination."

Pros: "Price was right; crew was very pleasant"
Cons: "Seats crowded; no free snacks"

Cons: "Very tight quarters. Tray table too small to support laptop"

Pros: "Nothing, it was the worst flight that I ever take."
Cons: "Customer service was a bummer. Charge for carry on? !!!!!! It's like stealing. It's stupid and it's not fair. The seats was so tide, it was like clastrophobia. All in all, bad experience ever."

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "everything"

Pros: "Their system of having people pay for carry on and having them board first did seem to make boarding go more quickly."
Cons: "Realize that Frontier's rates are not as much a "steal" after you pay for things like baggage (checked or carry on you'll have to pay something), any food or drink beyond 4 oz of water offered one time, or seat selection (obviously optional). If there was entertainment, I didn't know about it. There isn't even any printed material beyond the safety card and the menu of drinks or snacks for purchase. Bring your own food if you want to eat more than chips or trail mix."

Pros: "The flight personnel are great. We continue to receive a great value and great flights with Frontier"
Cons: "The contract employees at the Customer Service counter in DEN were totally incompetent this time. We could not get a simple question answered by the individual who spoke to us. We finally left the counter in total amazement and disgust. The ticket counter people at DCA were totally clueless.....only a single person there watching and instructing the other 6 or more managed to get the job done......although very slowly. I don't know if the baggage claim people at DCA are Frontier controlled, but they are horrifically slow......it took an hour to get our bags. The only actual flight complaint I have is the new seating......it is terrible.....the slouching position is absolutely awful."

Cons: "See above."

Pros: "I liked that it was on time, efficient boarding and a quiet flight."
Cons: "Extra fees for seat, carry on, beverages….."

Pros: "crew"
Cons: "awful seats, I am a small person, but even so... no entertainment, no food at all..."

Cons: "The seats don't recline at all. Would have been nice to lean back on a long flight."

Pros: "the flight got me to my destination"
Cons: "The flight attendants were the worst I have ever seen. They were rude and disrespectful to passengers. Then when they were in the back of the plane their complaints about their jobs and passengers could be heard by the passengers."

Pros: "We arrived at our destination."
Cons: "2+ hours late. No power adapters. No wifi. No entertainment. No food."
