It was a redeye flight, so there's not much that can be done to make it "better" per se. The crew is respectful of passengers trying to sleep, the lights remain low and announcements to a minimum. The amount of in-flight entertainment and charging ports available at each seat means I can easily find something to watch/listen to until I fall asleep, and my devices will be charged and ready to go when I reach my destination in the morning!
Pros: "The crew members were to patience with everyone and making sure everyone have a comfortable flight."
Cons: "Boarding members kept me for no reason to my Cary on bag"
Pros: "Very easy and great reminder app"
Pros: "Nothing really. It was as expected, but not more."
Cons: "Seats were cramped for all the talk of legroom"
Pros: "All my needs were met, but at times I did feel like staff were perhaps “inconvenienced/annoyed” by my frequent requests for water. I drank alcohol and thus wanted to stay as hydrated as possible. Also, the seat belt thing/issue. FAA or someone needs to review and update the bathroom policy. Consuming water is vital for our bodies and we need to be in situations that allow us to do so and also allow us easy access to flush out our toxins/liquids."
Cons: "No room in seat where this is suppose to be room. Arm chair tray tables??? Come on now... its 2019. TV was to small and poor TV quality."
Pros: "Nice crew, reasonably comfortable seating"
Cons: "One of the requested meals was not vegetarian and another was a very basic sandwich (not filling or at all appetizing)"
Cons: "There was no one sitting on the chairs behind us. We asked the attendant if we could sit since our sits were full. Anyways hope next time if the door is closed and passengers are tight they could sit on empty sits ."
Cons: "The door wouldn’t open once we arrived in Detroit"
Pros: "I like the fact that the staff was very friendly and accommodating. Seats were comfortable but poor condition (old). WiFi was nice as well."
Cons: "The flight was delayed twice and then jump back to the original time according to the JetBlue app. I had also called the airport I was departing from, and they're updated system said it was the original time, as well. Then they offered 2 wave the fees for cancellation or change of itinerary. So I went to go do that for the next day, because my flight wouldn't land in till 3 in the morning. But right as i clicked the confirm button, it said that offer was no longer eligible. And then it got changed again to the second alert which was 11:40 something, for departure. I understand that there was a severe thunderstorm and tornado watch, and warnings along the surrounding cities, however the continually changes in time, JetBlue and mco were not update with each other, it changed so much, so fast."
Pros: "Flight attendant at the front with the glasses was excellent"
Cons: "The flight attendant at the front- I don’t know her name but she was wonderful, friendly and smiling and seemed genuinely pleased at her job. The flight attendant in the back I don’t believe smiled once the whole flight. It was a relatively short flight but still not one smile on boarding, in flight or once we landed. Probably gave the most morose safety demonstration in aviation history. I know most people don’t like their jobs but a smile does go a long way and for me personally it helps s great deal when you have an irrational fear of flying. She did nothing wrong but she could have at least looked like she wanted to be there."
Cons: "Pets were allowed on the flight, and we had no prior knowledge of this. I happened to be allergic to furry animals, especially cats and dogs. There were two dogs on board, one in a row toward the front and one in the back. There was nowhere that I could go and allergens were probably circulated in the system. There was also a terrible odor that several others said they could also smell. The attendant said that there was nothing that could be done, and we suffered through the entire flight. Also, the TV control was broken and there was no option to turn off the TV. The attendant said that there would be a $25 voucher issued for compensation. We have not heard a peep from anyone!"
Pros: "Ease of boarding, extra room and knowledgeable staff."
Cons: "That I had to pay for earbuds or blanket."
Pros: "The inflight crew was amazing. Natalie was a sweetheart and super helpful. She even gave some of us a tour of the galleys and taught us a few things about Mosaic customers as well as a few other operational things. I didn’t catch the other flights attendants names as they covered more of the back of the plane but they were both insanely hospitable and it was very clear that they loved their jobs as they were having fun. The women who checked us in also accommodated is with Even More Space seats after knowing we were crew members!"
Cons: "As a non-rev I have no room to criticize. Only thing would be that the A/C model was an older version of the A320 (and I know that it will be updated eventually)"
Pros: "Cabin crew were polite and cheerful"
Cons: "Long delay"
Pros: "I liked the snack options and how nice the stewards and stewardesses were."
Cons: "People around me coughing, sniffling, and not understanding how to properly use the aisle seat. :) but nothing you all can control."
Pros: "I really enjoyed my flight. I generally fly Delta but I was really impressed with so many features this flight had to offer. Free television with movies and free WiFi. The staff was very friendly and the snacks actually were some of the things I get at home. I will fly jet blue in the future!"
Pros: "We upgraded to the “extra legroom” seats and they were so comfortable. The free entertainment was very nice and made the flight time pass quickly. The crew was friendly, attentive, and kind. We are looking forward to flying with them again."
Pros: "That we landed safely"
Cons: "Autistic child behind me without mom supervising her or sitting next to her . The child was about 11 but for some reason her mother was sitting on the isle next to her and wasn’t concerned about having that changed or helping her daughter have a better experience on the plane. The lil girl was screaming , she had a car that she rolled on my seat and the seat next to me for hrs. It’s not her fault, her mom didn’t do anything to help.. nothing .. Then the Crew was arguing and wasn’t happy at all .. Craig talks so fast on the intercome I couldn’t understand him .. Craig wasn’t happy with him having to do credit cards and wanted to do trash . Him and the crew from the back were arguing and I was in disbelief that not one crew member tried to help, talk to the mom or do anything about it .But they were involved in their own mess so they were not worried about the young lady screaming . I left that flight with a headache and no rest what so ever..i really wish the mom or someone would have said something.. absolutely awful flight .. awful I left there saying to the crew get me off of this plane pls .."
Pros: "Great crew."
Cons: "The usual negatives with discount airlines- pay for seats, food, ear buds etc. free snacks available and excellent."
Cons: "Flight from Boston to salt lake City was delayed by more than an hour"
Cons: "Delayed 5 hours for no apparent reason"
Pros: "Absolutely great leg room."
Pros: "Loved the size and comfort of the seats especially the legroom! Enjoyed being able to have more than one snack and friendly crew."
Cons: "Nothing comes to mind"
Pros: "Legroom, free movies, and the crew members were courteous, and professional."
Cons: "They only offered chips as snacks; I wish there were really foods I could order."
Pros: "Great snacks, nice plane staff."
Cons: "An electrical problem caused the plane to shut down. Rather than finding us new flights, we waited for many hours for the plane to be repaired. I was planning on making it to work by 9 this morning but the only folks who received alternate flights were the ones with connections :( in addition to this, the power shutting down on the plane was extremely unsettling. I have flown hundreds of times and have zero fear of flying. Today, I was terrified that the power would shut off mid-flight at any moment. I truly wish we'd been given another plane...i know that's tough. But something along those lines would have been better than stepping back on the one that shut down with all of us in it...after waiting for hours for it to be repaired. I do appreciate the $150 coupon though."
Pros: "The boarding process was fast and easy. Finding the seats was easy. The inflight snacks were acceptable."
Cons: "The flight announcer at the beginning of the flight was super unprofessional. They kept having to stop their script in order to laugh and giggle. Had I not already know how to do the safety procedures, I wouldn't have learned it from him. The seat belt barely fit me. Now, to be fair, I am fat. But, when I had to suck in to belt in, there was no slack on the end. The seat 31C has a busted aux port. I tried to watch a movie, first off the closed captioning didn't work. So I tried to listen. The aux port wiggled in it's casing and there was so much static that there was no point in listening. The off boarding process was very slow and uncoordinated. I understand that they have to off board in a certain order. However, the flight announcer could have kept the rest of the plane updated on the process. Instead we had to sit in claustrophobic silence and fidget while the line of passengers in the aisle did not move."
Pros: "Jet Blue was GREAT- as usual. I want you to know that getting through security in ATL airport was an ordeal. Incredibly long lines, disorganized (a sign clearly said, TSA Pre-check- line up here) and then the people managing the lines yelling at us (and this is an observation) because they wanted us lined up further back. This was baffling because the actual line into the TSA space was empty at that point. I think the ATL security staff could all benefit from some further training about to work with people effectively AND ATL airport needs to look at their systems. I know it's a busy airport, but there has to be something better than what they are doing now!"
Pros: "My partner and I bought extra legroom seats we could sit together. They were expensive but nice. The crew was very friendly and tried to help with my broken screen/entertainment system. When the attendant couldn't fix it, she said she could offer me a cocktail but since it was 10:30 am, it was kind of hard to justify."
Cons: "It's a first world problem to have a broken personal entertainment system at your jet seat so, of course, one keeps these things in perspective. I mention it only because this flight was relatively expensive ... and I was really looking forward to watching The Greatest Showman. :-)"
Pros: "The crew was nice and polite."
Cons: "JetBlue flight was delay us for 3 hours without any explanation. Made us feel unappreciated as customers."
Pros: "Movies for free"
Cons: "The one hour delay"
Pros: "It's a budget carrier - I don't expect great food and brand new upholstery. I expect safe, on-time travel, and JetBlue meets and exceeds my expectations every time. Very happy. A great, community-involved company too."
Cons: "Free Wi-Fi, but it seems you have to sign up for an account or/and do something with Amazon. Needlessly complicated. If the Wi-Fi is free, just let passengers join."
Pros: "Landed early and safe"
Pros: "The crew and food was great. Great flight"
Cons: "Nothing it was great leg room was great"
Cons: "The flight was delayed several times. The plane was hot. There was a loud crying baby behind us kicking our seats... I thought there was more than one baby and was surprised to see all that was generated by one. Our attendant was a little snarky and dismissive. One entertainment screen was on the fritz, and the sound was messed up on the other, so we hacked them together to make one functioning system for one of us. The fly-fi was out of range for all but the last 30 minutes. The seats seem to be getting narrower, and I've lost weight!"
Pros: "I did appreciate how apologetic the flight crew was and eventually we were able to board our flight. I also appreciated the credit that Jetblue gave me for the inconvienence. That showed sensitivity on their part that was refreshing. I know it is the holidays so its busy, and unexpected situations do arise during these times especially, so at least the credit provided some positive relief to the disappointment."
Cons: "I understand that maintaince is a necessary and usual part of flying planes every day, that said, I had booked the earlier flight for the purpose and intention of getting into Boston earlier to spend more time with my family but arriving 5 hours later than expected was disappointing. Needless to say, the traffic getting out of Boston at 4pm on a Tuesday only added insult to injury. This was also the second time that I had an underwhelming experience overall flying Jetblue so that added to the disappointment."
Cons: "When I got home and unpacked my sneakers were stolen out of my bag. The ripped the bag open and took them"
Pros: "I was treated with empathy and compassion on my roundtrip flight from NYC to ATL. I suffer from severe anxiety and I am facing my fear of flying without medication and I expressed this to the staff and they were attentive to make sure I was okay. They answered all my questions and gave great advice about how to tackle my fear. Great job JetBlue recruitment and training."
Cons: "No one compliant"
Pros: "the seats were more comfortable than many other airlines, the snacks were more plentiful. I only saw one flight attendant doing anything in coach, he kept very busy and was pleasant. There was a female attendant around but I did not see her doing anything - maybe she was first class."
Cons: "First, the pre-boarding announcements were very difficult to hear and understand. The attendant spoke way too fast so that combined with the lack of clarity of the speakers made it almost impossible to understand what was being said. I have a hearing impairment so I need my husband to tell me but he too had trouble understanding the announcements. This was somewhat true during the announcements on the plane also, but less of a problem there. Let's face it, the audio systems really make things sound garbled so it is very important to speak clearly and slowly enough. I don't know how I could travel alone."
Cons: "Flight was delayed over 5 hrs. Not the airline's fault but waited in the help line for over an hr before the agent told me there was no earlier flight I could be placed on - she was incorrect. Pointed out that there was another flight that had also been delayed and therefore hadn't left yet - she agreed, put me on standby. At the gate, the boarding crew did not know what they were doing. The plane was 20% empty but crew made situation very hectic by giving standby passengers seats, taking them away, and then realizing there was actually enough room on the plane. Crew was friendly but incompetent in terms of problem solving."
Pros: "Pilot came out to talk to us! Flight attendant handled things very well!"
Cons: "Wish there had been more food options."
Cons: "Endless delays and extremely shitty boarding staff."
Pros: "on time, early, friendly flight attendant. clean!!!"
Pros: "The crew held the plane for my traveling partner when we were late to the flight. He got stuck at the security line and navigating ATL airport is not easy, to say the least. The front desk gate agents held the plane a few extra minutes so that we could board. Thankfully so because it was the last flight out for the night."
Pros: "We got to our final destination."
Cons: "We needed to wait for "just a few minutes." The Captain said. Then, no other communication at all and we left over an hour late for a 45-minute flight, no explanation. I hate when they leave you in the dark and aren't upfront. The connection from Emirates to JetBlue we had was almost impossible. Two healthy adults, arriving on time in NYC with two hours to make a connection. With walking as fast as possible and not even going to the bathroom, we barely made the flight. Customs. Change terminals. Go through security again. ridiculous."
Flight attendants are so overworked so when I see the their frowning faces barking orders at us I just try to be sympathetic but really, the days of happy flying seem gone.
Seats were surprisingly comfortable and sufficiently roomy. Flight attendants were helpful and courteous. Flight departed on time and arrived a little early. My wife and I both agreed this may have been the best flight we've ever had: a direct flight from Kansas City to Atlanta to visit my son and his family. Convenient, relatively inexpensive, and overall a great experience!
The whole experience was great. Boarding is so orderly. The staff is super helpful. The wifi works great the whole flight so I was able to text for the entire flight. The best part was that it was orderly even when we were exiting the flight.
Cons: "My sister’s checked in luggage was in poor shape when we got it in Albany. We noticed an outside compartment was unzipped. So we checked to see if anything was missing and a souvenir from Mexico was gone. Then we realized a zipper was missing from the luggage and then decided to check all the other compartments and realized her bag of jewelry was gone. The woman at baggage services in Albany told us Delta is not responsible for lost belongings. Also tried to tell us theft is not an issue because there are cameras everywhere. Well you are telling someone that is missing a bag of jewelry that theft is not a problem. Also, there may be cameras everywhere but I doubt anyone is going to review those cameras to see what happened. I will never fly Delta again."
Pros: "Service was great."
Cons: "It was a shortest duration flight of the three so I couldn’t point out here what was lacking. Thank you!"
Cons: "Flight left on time and arrived 30 minutes early! Great crew. No complaints here!"
Pros: "The crew was ok. The seats was good :)"
Pros: "Delta in flight entertainment is great."
Cons: "Always delayed."
Pros: "Food was decent and crew were nice enough"
Cons: "Seat space was small and cramped. Entertainment was poor unfortunately"
Cons: "we began the boarding process late, which can be understandable, although the plane was there pretty early. Once the boarding began, someone, I presume the gate agent, essentially gave a countdown to hhow many minutes were left until the flight could have an "on time departure". I travel nearly every week so I value being on time. However, a minute by minute call to hurry up on a flight that was sold out was over the top. There was mumbling among the passengers, to the point of someone joking "Free cookies and water if we make it on time?" Just a bad gate experience, but bad enough that peopoe were commenting, and I waited for someone from the cockpit to del\part so I could mention it to them."
Cons: "We had to wait 10+ minutes to park in Boston. We arrived early but didn't park until past the projected time of arrival."
Pros: "Flight itself uneventful"
Cons: "Flight was delayed with no explanation."
Pros: "Crew was courteous, I asked for a blanket and a banana (I saw some being passed to delta select (?) passengers), and got both, no one snapped at me like on an earlier flight.5"
Cons: "The flight was 3.5 hrs late. (Had it been on time, I would have missed it entirely though because Atlanta airport passport control was complete chaos, I heard the airport wa closed earlier for weather related reasons). Enough said."
Pros: "I am always impressed by the Delta staff. Top notch."
Cons: "The entertainment screens have an (older) head phone jack that many people do not have. The headphones available for purchase by the airline are of very poor quality. I also am surprised that airlines (not just Delta) continue to provide such low quality food options on flights. I think consumers would pay more for better options."
Pros: "Great friendly crew. Great entertainment with movies on a short narrow body flight!"
Cons: "Boarding and disembarking was again slow. Must be a cultural thing as each flight in the US seems to be like this as people take ages to get their bags organised on arrival. Chaotic boarding is compounded by the back of the plane boarding last.... everywhere else in the world loads everyone together or does the back of the plane first and it's much quicker!"
Pros: "Equipment was nice and well maintained. Seats are comfortable for coach. Video at each seat. Friendly staff."
Pros: "I like that I was able to request a window seat and was obliged to get another one."
Cons: "My flight was cancelled and I had anxiety about being at my destinations on time because I had to travel another hour away without knowing if my ride would be able to wait for me. However, I was booked on another plane that wasn't damaged which got me there on time,but once I arrived my luggage was no where to be found. I was promised my luggage on the same day,but I didn't get it until 11:30pm that night from a 2:40pm flight. I had to go out and spend money on toiletries,night wear and my medicine because of not having my luggage. Just totally disgusted by the overall experience and wouldn't wish it on anyone."
Pros: "Efficient boarding"
Pros: "Prior military was offered to preboard and it was a very comfortable flight"
Pros: "Even though we were in the very back row, we did not experience a foul smell from the restrooms. This was a very nice relief. It is bad enough that the seats don't recline and there is no window in the very back row but prior experience with the added nausea of foul restroom order has been a serious insult to injury. In this case there was really minimal odor. Also since we are traveling as a family we are very happy that we were seated together. We have experienced the past that sometimes our seats will be fragmented and that creates major challenges when you are traveling with young children. However on this particular flight the ride was rough during both takeoff and landing, a lot of side to side shimmy. Also the cabin pressure varied quite a bit during landing causing all the kids to complain about some discomfort in their ears."
Pros: "Nice equipment for the ride and pleasant staff"
Pros: "I flew on a basic economy fare (I understand the restrictions) and was seated in Economy Comfort +, so that was appreciated."
Cons: "I could see on the Fly Delta app that I had been placed in seat 10B, but neither the app nor my boarding pass gave me a group to board with, so I assumed that I needed to board with group 3, which necessitated gate-checking my rollerboard bag. Only when I approached the gate to board did I notice on the info screen that I had been "upgraded" to Comfort + and granted boarding with the Sky Priority group. I wish this had been clearer so I could have avoided waiting to board and gate-checking my bag. Minor inconvenience but room for improvement on Delta's part."
Pros: "The crew went out of their way to make sure they got the plane ready as quickly as possible and get us to Jacksonville as quickly as possible."
Cons: "Delta lost the plane for over an hour. After already spending 10 hours in ATL because of an earlier delay due to human error I was extremely disappointed in Delta that my flight out of Atlanta was delayed by an hour because they LOST the plane and couldn’t find it or the truck to bring it to the gate. This kind of error on Xmas eve is embarrassing. Delta didn’t do anything for the passengers affected by this. I was dumbstruck by the apathy of the Delta employees at the gate (the exception was the flight crew, who tried to get the aircraft there earlier). Because Delta did nothing but make error after error I arrived at home 11 hours later than my original flight was booked for on Christmas Eve, missing Christmas Eve Services and family traditions. When I need to get somewhere on time I’ll never rely on Delta after this experience."
Pros: "Quick and easy boarding. Quick flight"
Cons: "Audio entertainment quite limited"
Pros: "In-flight entertainment and communication."
Cons: "The online reservation had me pick seats for my family, those seats were emailed to me, then when I checked in and got our boarding passes, the seats had changed! Wouldn't have been a big deal, but I had already memorized our seats, so I looked like a moron when I insisted seats that were not ours anymore were ours!"
Cons: "I has nothing to do with the flight it self! The original fight was cancelled from Minneapolis to Atlanta (with no notice) I found this out by calling!! I was told a confirmation of a new flight was going to be email once the request from the support had been approved (the email confirmation was never received). I was also instructed multiple times to not show at the airport unless I had receive the confirmation. I was up most of the night waiting for this confirmation that never came!! I received an email this morning letting me know the fight from ALT to Mexico had been delay!! When I opened it to view the itinerary it showed she had been booked for the am fight at 6:30 am! after spending another hour and 35 minutes on the phone your support team could not find a fight until Dec.21!! Not to mention the accepted they had problems with their email system and phones, but asked why didn't I called,mmm I was on the phone for the 3rd time!!!! I am very, very disappointed!! Not a discount was offer or a fight the next day even when I was checking an flights were available!!! Here is the other part,,Rosa came all the way from Mexico to care for her ill sister for the last 2 1/2 months, all she asked was to be able to be back home for the holidays!! Your team insisted on scheduling a flight for next week or a full refund!! This was not a money matter!! It's about getting some one home for the Holidays who has helped a ill person during the most vulnerable time in her life!!"
Pros: "Staff were friendly and worked hard."
Cons: "Seats were very basic and not as good as the low cost carrier I normally fly out of the UK. Very old and noisy aircraft. Seemed little control over how much hand luggage passengers were bringing onto the aircraft."
Pros: "More seat room than expected for economy tickets. Good service, on time, polite staff"
Cons: "Duty free purchases not waiting for us at boarding like usual. Audio selection on entertainment was v poor"
Pros: "The Delta people were solicitous, efficient and brilliant the whole way through. We had not a bit of trouble. Our first class seats were comfortable, but with the supplied blanket, pillow and poor air conditioning it was a hot flight. The cabin personnel were wonderful as per usual, and my tasty gin and tonic soothed any discontent. I wish I could fly this way all the time!"
Cons: "The private contractor handling wheelchair assistance was terrible. A Delta employee theorized that they do not pay enough to attract and retain personnel. Our pre-arranged chair was not there, multiple calls by our Delta assistant finally got us a ride to the chair holding area, but after about 45 minutes we gave up and shuffled off to the security area on foot. Thank goodness my hubby is mobile enough for that to have been an option. When we abandoned our wait we were still 4th in line for an attendant to push the chair. If Delta has any responsibility in this it would be in the retention and compensation for the private contractor."
Pros: "Great polite and personable crew. Quality food snacks that accompany the beverage."
Cons: "The seats weren’t very comfortable or spacious. And the get your seat at the gate process is a little unclear"
Pros: "Staff pretty friendly. Plane clean. Ran on time. Good communication."
Cons: "No option for tv/movie on a longer flight. And really? One tiny snack for a longer flight too?? Little more room in seats would be nice."
Pros: "Modern plane from ATL to BOS. On board games were a fun distraction."
Cons: "Plane was supposed to depart at 9:09pm. An announcement was made that in Atlanta which is Delta hub, there were no flight attendants for the flight so we had to wait for another crew to fly in. That's just unporfessiknal. To make matters worse, the gate agents didn't make announcements even if just to say we know this isn't good and we will update you asap even if just to tell you we are still waiting on word. Total silence and seeing the gate agents laugh and talk amongst each other was pretty bad."
Pros: "Everything about the flight was great. We boarded and took off on time. I have no complaints."
Cons: "No complaints! I had a perfect diet coke and pretzels while I watched tv."
Pros: "The crew were nice"
Cons: "The wifi didn't work at all, the entertainment system wasn't working until they did a reboot during the flight"
Cons: "The fact that my flight was delayed for the second time in the past week"
Pros: "Pilot got us back safe through some bad turbulence, the flight was shaky from start to finish. They gave extra snacks, were attentive to any needs. Would definitely trust Delta pilots again. Also with this being a connecting flight, it was nice that the group of five I was in was given an entire row to ourselves."
Cons: "Everything that could have gone wrong with my flights, went wrong. On my way from LA to Raleigh (through Atlanta), I was affected by the weather conditions at Atlanta. I understand that the weather is beyond Delta's scope of control, but customer service is not. I had to wait in line at LAX for 8 hours to even get information on what had happened, and what solutions were available. The customer service call center was collapsed, and at the airport counters at one point there was ONLY ONE DELTA REPRESENTATIVE serving a line of more than 100 upset customers. This IS Delta's fault, and it is unacceptable. This definitely was under Delta's control, but in order to save a few dollars in overtime for emergency staff Delta was willing to let its customers make terribly long lines, miss their flights, their connections and consequently their commitments. It is disappointing to observe how Delta believes that a few dollars saved on extra staff and emergency measures can offset the irreparable long term damage to its business due to upset customers. My way back from Raleigh to Los Angeles was also a disaster. Without any type of explanation and nothing more than an email announcing the change, the nonstop flight I bought was replaced by a 1-stop flight with connection in Atlanta. This was NOT THE PRODUCT I PURCHASED. There is a reason I paid a premium for a nonstop flight, and Delta did not hesitate in providing me with a less valuable product without any explanation or refund. Delta prioritizes its operational metrics - an obsession to fill and overbook its capacity - over its customers' experience, one again under the foolish belief that short term savings in any way offset the long term damage of disappointed and alienated customers. I will NEVER FLY DELTA AGAIN. I will do whatever I can to transmit my experience to everyone I know. At a time where major airline carriers are in the spotlight due to abusive practices (i.e. the United passenger case), I still find hope in knowing that alternatives such as Southwest still put their customers first, over the ethereal benefits that a few-dollar savings in operational expenses can provide."
Cons: "Sat in Delta Comfort and a loyal Delta flier, except had the bad fortune of taking off at 830 ATL time and apparently Delta doesn't find it important or a good idea to sell food after that time. The logic behind this is beyond me. I'm willing to pay $9 for a few cheese slice and crackers or a sandwich yet they don't offer anything, not even to first class which would really irritate me had I paid 1000 bucks. Ontop of that the crew which is normally excellent, was feisty and rude and wanted nothing to do with their job"
Pros: "Clean plane, good service. on time departure, early arrival."
Cons: "I did not like the way the plane was boarded- people could not get into their seats because others blocked the aisles - so chaotic. Passengers were not being rude to one another, it was simply that the process is poor. Could the zones instead reflect both location of seat and area of plane, so that those with window seats at the back board first, then middle seats, then aisle? That way if aisle seats fill first, seated people are not stepping back into the aisle to accommodate others needing to get a seat in that row, while everyone on the gang way must wait for the aisle to clear."
Pros: "Length of flight was good, one of the flight attendants was very nice"
Cons: "Flight attendant arguing and having words with a passenger BEFORE the flight even took off was very alarming, the attendant had walked past the seat, we saw her face change, she halted and walked back to the passenger and a very heated and negative exchange ensued, then another flight attendant came out and threatened to evict the passenger from the flight, this was before the flight even took place .... all passengers were like just remove them already ... t his is a short flight and most of use were connecting from a long flight from overseas ...."
Cons: "Delta Flight #1494 On my return flight, I had to pay for a 2nd ticket to fly out early since Delta was cancelling flights to the south and I didn’t want to get stuck in Philadelphia. When the plane arrived for a layover in Atlanta, there was a flight going on from the first 2 people waiting to deplane. In my distraction and fear, I left my water bottle next to my seat. When I realized that I had left it, I went back to the gate and told the gate attendant that my bottle was next to my seat. She would not call down to the plane, nor walk down, and told me I had to wait until the entire flight had boarded. I explained that my connecting flight was boarding across the airport. The bottle was expensive and had great sentimental value. A couple times, I tried to ask people boarding the flight if they would tell a flight attendant to retrieve my bottle. The gate attendant told the boarding passenger to ignore me. When the flight had completely boarded, the gate attendant went down to the plane only to return to me to tell me that the flight attendant(s) allowed the cleaning crew to take the bottle. The gate attendant called the cleaning service and then she told me that the bottle was waiting at the tower and that I could ask at my next gate to have the bottle delivered to that gate. Since my connecting flight had already started boarding I had to run/train it across the airport to arrive at the gate. When I told the 2nd gate attendant, the story and asked him to call the tower to get my bottle, he told me that “wasn’t a thing” and that the 1st gate attendant lied to me. I had to board since they were getting ready to close the plane. This incident was compounded to many unpleasant experiences I’ve had with Delta over the past few years (losing my luggage and lying about it, damaging my suitcase, etc., etc.). I don’t understand how you can continue to be successful as an airline when you run your operation the way Delta does."
Pros: "Good selection of movies available, but right half of touch screen was broken..."
Cons: "Flight departure was delayed almost 30 minutes for "baggage," but Delta still managed to leave many passengers' luggage in Amsterdam. Desk agent guaranteed baggage delivery within 24 hours. 4 days and 3 airports later, my bag reached my hotel. Fly Air France instead. The food is better and they won't lose your luggage."
Cons: "A flying chicken bus. The air conditioning was really loud."
Cons: "I had a reserved Comfort Class Aisle seat, purchased at time of reservation and showing as my assigned seat through printing of boarding pass. At the gate, my seat was reassigned to a middle seat. This is a huge problem for me, as my back and leg injuries require the ability to stretch and move frequently. When complaining on Delta phone lines, I was told that the seat was needed for a Diamond member and therefore was "policy" to bump. Although I eventually received some compensation for the fact I paid more for the original seat, I remain very disappointed in Delta, if this is indeed the policy."
Pros: "The following day had different employees working so they weren't as rude as they were on my original day of travel."
Cons: "Having a domestic leg of travel that includes ATL to LAX as part of your international travel plans is horrible with Delta Airlines. The rude gate employee decides to check my carry on piece to my destination. I explain that I have a14 hour connection and I need the small arty on piece for that flight. I was asked to talk to the other gate employee while they gave my seat away. It's horrible how rude and dismissive they were. I asked for compensation but they started to lie. Apparently I 'gave' up my seat. Once the shift manager started to help me, I thought things would've ok. It got worse. The Delta training took over. Both employees repeated the exact same words about me volunteering my seat so there's no compensation. It cost me a hotel night and 24 hours. I will avoid Delta at all costs... and I know it will be difficult since flying through ATL is pretty much alway Delta. But, it's too much. Lying, rude and dismissive employees at various levels of management. Horrible"
It was comfortable and organized.
Pros: "The overall flight was good!"
Cons: "Maybe make sure that communication between connecting flights are quick and efficient."
Pros: "Crew was great & flight was quiet."
Pros: "Movie selection and comfort of seats"
Cons: "They somehow “lost” luggage for half the hee passengers, and we had to wait for 2 hours by the carousel for them to “find” it. Totally unacceptable."
Pros: "They got me home eventually"
Cons: "Timeliness was awful. Late crew delayed the flight 50 min. Then ripped cargo net resulted in cargo shift."
Cons: "Even with the delay I had a good flight and the service on board was very good"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled, some staff I dealt with to rebook had some attitude issues, others where fine. Overall not very transparent throughout the process. Definitely could've been much more helpful."
Cons: "Everything was fine, crew was great, but the wifi entertainment system is a joke. Its nice to allow passengers to connect and watch movies or shows, however, when trying to watch a movie it constantly buffers. More buffering then watching, to the point of just stopping and skipping it all together."
Cons: "I had little leg room"
Pros: "Crew was wonderful."
Cons: "Not much leg room."
Pros: "The greatest part of the trip for me was the smooth landing."
Cons: "I wanted a voucher ride but they only needed a few volunteers."
Cons: "Commuter jet boarding at DCA is going to stink until the new terminal is completed. Just is."
Pros: "ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!"
Cons: "At 12:40 p.m. we boarded American Airlines flight 1350 in ATL, just to SIT on plane for 1 1/2 hours (half the time with NO AIR). Computer problems. Had to get off plane, then had to wait in 3 lines. Agents were so UNPROFESSIONAL! Kept saying flight would go... DID NOT go until another plane came in at 9:00 PM! We, needless to say missed our connecting flight to SYDNEY and had to wait til next day and fly to SAN FRANCISCO, then to MELBOURNE, then on to Christchurch. We MISSED out on TWO DAYS of our short trip! which included missed reservations!!"
Cons: "Snacks, non usable Wi-Fi"
Pros: "We left early and arrived early. Smooth flight."
Pros: "I was not expecting the ample leg room and arm space. I was actually comfortable. It made such a huge difference in my day. The crew members were great and it was a pretty chill experience, which is not how I can describe any other flight in recent memory."
Cons: "The entertainment was just snippets from NBC shows that I’m not interested in. It was the same presentation on both legs of my trip, so even if I had been interested initially, I would have gotten bored the second time around."
Pros: "How fast they had us in the air (5 min early)."
Cons: "In their rush to leave, they didn't communicate with the on board crew about overhead bins and I was forced to check a priceless item that I purposely wanted with me in the cabin. The overheads were empty above my own seat. I wasn't allowed to go back and reclaim my bag because they had already taken it. And they were completely indifferent to my situation, which isn't surprising given they didn't understand the value of my item. Thus, I had a full blown panic attack for my entire 2 hour flight, my medicine being one of the items also in my now checked bag. It was too late, my bag was taken and thrown under the plane by the time it struck. And the flight attendants also had on perfume that brought on a tension headache due to my sensitivity to scents. Considering they work in a recycled air tube, this seems like a vast oversight on their part and should consider that not everyone can handle even the faintest of perfumes. It may not seem like a big deal to them, because mental illness is still seen as a made up thing, but it was enough of a trigger that I will not fly American Airlines again."
Pros: "the staff was great from check in at the airport until I landed"
Cons: "I wish the snacks were heathy like dried fruit and nuts"
Pros: "Food was better than expected."
Cons: "Flight was too warm."
Pros: "VEry good Cabin crew and the plane was reasonable new"
Pros: "Everything went exactly as scheduled."
Pros: "Clean plane a little more room in economy seats. Crew helped people find window and aisle seats if they were in middle."
Cons: "No in seat entertainment. Just drop down lCD panels for shows."
Pros: "CRJ 900s have more leg room than expected"
Cons: "The plane was incredibly hot and humid while we were on the ground. The stewardess told us we had a broken APU but would not tell us what that is or if it was actually a problem. Someone pressed the call button during the flight but the stewardess couldn't be bothered to get up and the call light stayed on the whole flight. Eventually the plane cooled some once we were airborne but stayed too warm. It got very hot once again when we landed."
Pros: "Wasn't completely full."
Cons: "An extremely rude woman told me there was no space to place my bag in the overhead compartment and forced me to step aside and check my backpack. I didn't have a purse or any other item, just a backpack. I told them I had medication and they told me to just put it in my pockets. So I stashed my medicine in my pockets and had no room for my personal items or valuables. I had a hiking backpack with a water bottle in the side, and since they forced me to check the bag, my water bottle flew out of the pocket while it was being loaded onto the plane. Fortunately they at least tracked me down and brought my stainless steel water bottle to my seat. However, it wouldn't fit in the pocket in front of me and I had no other bag to store it in so I had to hold it and a few other belongings in my lap for the entire flight. I also had some other fragile items in my backpack that may or may not be okay. Also, when I boarded the plane, there was still space...there was no need to be so rude and force me to check a bag being used not only as my suitcase but as my purse as well. I'm so displeased with American, their staff, and their overall disorganization. How ridiculous."
Pros: "Quickness of flight once up in the air"
Cons: "Getting stuck at gate waiting for air traffic control to find/make the flight a new flight plan"
Pros: "Seats had good leg room, and the current movies were free (unlike on the United flight I took a short while ago). Boarding was quick."
Cons: "Mechanical issues, late late late, bad communication, no apologies or compensation for huge waste of time."
Pros: "The crew was professional"
Pros: "In General, as a premium passenger, I usually enjoy the premium cabin experience; however, it was lacking this time."
Cons: "In first class, three/four of us requested headphones/headsets; the flight attendant informed us that there were no headphones/headsets; thus, we could not watch any programming In first class, there were two meal options, but one was almost immediately depleted before the flight attendant arrived at my row."
Pros: "For the most part the trip was wonderful."
Cons: "I was unhappy because every leg of my journey I was being charged for my baggage. I thought this was unfair. Those working with customer service was not helpful either. They were frustrated and thus frustrated me. In addition my flight was late leaving the airport and the captain nor the stewardesses gave an explanation. This was unacceptable. We were late over hour."
Cons: "Flight attendant called cops on passenger sitting next to me to be escorted off the plane for no reason!"
Pros: "Good customer service, friendly stewards and stewardess."
Cons: "No negative actions. All positive."
Pros: "Quick flight, great service"
Cons: "Was not accommodated for a missed flight"
Pros: "Eventually we got to hartford"
Cons: "Delayed leaving ATL, sat on the Tarmac for 30 mins. Leaving CLT was delayed 1.5 hrs for mechanical issue because it problem occurred during a shift change. Also was never given the opportunity to choose a seat assignment on CLT-BDL so I ended up in the very last middle seat."
Pros: "Flights were on time if not early-Excellent"
Cons: "E tickets or even itinerary should have terminals listed on E ticket LGA-got off at Am terminal B to find out I was leaving from C Had to take shuttle to C. Return to NY same issue-had to ask what terminal I was at To notify my driver once I was off the plane."
Cons: "The obese person was NOT supposed to sit next to me (in my row) he had the seat in front of me. He saw that there were 2 men in his row, he switched to sit in the middle seat 1 row behind. However, i paid extra to move up and i ended up being squashed, sitting very uncomfortably. The man took up half my seat. The flight attendants knew of the messed up seating but did not correct it. Overall disappointed, they should make sure everyone sat in the right place."
Pros: "Pilot announced a change in time."
Cons: "Paying for my plane ticket broke college kid..."
Pros: "Really great flight"
Cons: "The wait"
Pros: "The flight attendants were nice and helpful"
Cons: "First of all flight was delayed an hour and a half.. Then I went to get something to eat to kill time just to find out they switched the gate causing me to have to run all the way to the new gate then they close the door as I was walking up and told me I missed my flight even though the plane was still there for another 15 minutes.. so I had to fly standby on the next flight which was another hour and a half later.. I arrived at the airport at 12:30 and didn't end up catching a flight until 7:45 p.m.... oh and I forgot to mention that I originally paid for an upgrade for priority seating with more legroom that I never received because they put me on the very last seat that you can't even replying because there is a wall behind you.. SMH"
Cons: "Flight was late arriving to Atl flight was late arriving to Chicago made me miss my connection to FNT American rebooked (after they told me they hold plane I ran through 5 concourses to get there n American still left me and several other passengers) through United late flight to FNT a 4 hr lay-over turned into 6hrs 2 plane changes cause of mechanical issues n had to run 2 concourses over still was late leaving and arriving to FNT...."
Pros: "Crew was very professional and courteous. Our plane landed early which is a plus"
Cons: "I didn't like the fact some of the seats appeared to be dirty , I sat on a book."
Cons: "My flight was overbooked. I almost didn't make it home."
Pros: "The flight board on time, the crew was hospitable and seat was comfortable."
Pros: "The entertainment, the crew were very hospitable. The flight was on time"
Pros: "We didn't crash."
Cons: "The crew was just downright rude. Condescending rude and full of tude. Also they are all 100 years old and one lady was so fat she could barely fit in the aisle. Come on AA...really you can't do better than this?? Seats were uncomfortable as can be and food weas slightly worse than average airplane food. funny thing is I always fly delta and delta partners but this time I thought I would go the cheaper route. Never again will I fly American anything anywhere. Very disappointed. There is nothing positive to say about anything except the fact that we didn't crash. We were also delayed 2 hours and sitting on the Tarmac. Horrid experience."
Pros: "Very little"
Cons: "Flight was delayed because of weather, which is understandable. The way your staff handled this in both Atlanta and Philly was totally unacceptable. No one knew what to do. I missed my connecting flight to Rome, Italy. I got a good deal on the tickets but in the future I will stick with Delta."
Cons: "Flight was canceled then delayed"
Pros: "On time boarding, take off and arrival."
Cons: "Nothing. It was a short flight."
Cons: "Take off could have been better. It was delayed, but pilot helped resolve the problem; so, it was fine."
Pros: "Crew was above and beyond. Really helpful and kind."
Pros: "I really liked the entertainment on board. Made the flight go by so fast."
Cons: "Better snacks"
Pros: "Gateway clean. Wheelchair assistance was helpful, and friendly Flight attendants were courteous"
Cons: "- Tiny bag of pretzels seems cheap for a $600+ ticket. - HATE, HATE, HATE the charges for the first and second checked baggages!! I stopped using UA over 7 years ago because of these charges that came when gas prices were high and never went away. Always use Southwest whenever possible. Cheaper!"
Pros: "The seat for United First is really comfortable and the in-flight dinner for the route was pretty good."
Pros: "Better leg space than United flights."
Cons: "Flight was super delayed, staff wasn’t very helpful when I was getting rebooked"
Pros: "Layout of plane good for walking. ATL gate agents 5-star, all other staff horrible. Drunk passenger vomited in aisle (SFO to Auckland) & got vomit in my hair. Nauseated entire 12 hour international flight & flight attendant refused to move me. Couldn’t eat because of vomit on me and around me, flight attendant said, “it’s perfect, I sprayed it.” Unbelievable!!! Do not recommend United Airlines."
Cons: "Drunk passenger vomited on me (SFO to Auckland) and female Asian flight attendant refused to move me even though plenty of cabin space available. Unsanitary condition called for empathy and United failed to deliver..."
Pros: "Professional people/crew"
Cons: "Incredibly small seats from a small plane"
Pros: "Not many passengers on plane."
Cons: "Three hours late taking off."
Pros: "Flight crew was polite"
Cons: "Took forever to board and exit the plane"
Pros: "Newer plane it seemed."
Cons: "No meal on first Class ??"
Pros: "The staff was very nice and the flight was smooth."
Cons: "Ok we have two units at Crescent apartments to clean so please meet us there."
Pros: "I was separated from my 4 year old and 7 year old children as well as our husband. We bought our tickets together but we're out on 4 different rows. I asked flight attendant for help and she was rude. She talked to my husband who was further in the back and came back and told everyone it was ok for my kids to not be with their parents because my husband said it was ok. It was not ok, it was awful. After I started crying someone finally traded spots. But I didn't like that my husband's wishes over Road mine, it was misogynistic and she was a woman, a very condescending women."
Cons: "That our family was separated. That the female flight attendant talked down to me in a misogynistic way"
Cons: "First flight has delayed from Atlanta to Houston,after that all the contact flight has massed up."
Pros: "United did a great job keeping us informed of where the plane was and why we were being delayed. Only 15 minutes late. But staff explained why and I think this helps ease people's anxiety. Inflight wifi was awesome!"
Pros: "We were told that this was due to the weather at destination ( Newark) but the weather in Newark was fine. Hence, not sure if it is the airline ( United) or the air traffic controllers that caused the delay. United blamed the controllers. The Captain was very courteous apologizing many times for the delay ."
Pros: "Crew was calm"
Cons: "timing, plane was dirty, wifi was faulty, got hurt because of broken parts near the leg. Cabin had a smoky smell and water leaking from restroom ceiling.Worst of all, I had to land on the runway at Dulles Airport."
Cons: "2.5h hours delay almost made me miss my second flight that day. Also agent didn't seem to know anything so wasn't able to help."
Pros: "Nice new seats"
Cons: "It was not a good experience at all. Honestly, I wanted my money back. I sent United this letter, but no one is gotten back to me yet. Hello, my name is David Larkins. I have had literally the worst airline experience of my life today with United airlines. With confirmation number BS2EL9, my flight was set to go from Atlanta to Burbank, with a connection in San Francisco. The flight from Atlanta was delayed about 10 minutes, however, they assured us that we would arrive in San Francisco at the correct time of 9:39 AM with enough time to get to our connecting flights. They lied. Whereas we did arrive in San Francisco at around 9:39 AM, the plane taxied for approximately 15 or more minutes before letting anyone off of the plane. Still, I ran to my connecting flight before it left the runway at 10:10am. However, I was not permitted to step onto the plane by the fellow at the gate at the time. He told me that because boarding time was over at 9:55a, he would not let me step on the plane even though it was still on the runway. I was upset. I went to customer service and explained my situation to them. Speaking with a girl named Krystin S., I explained that I really needed to get to Burbank on time, before 2 o'clock. Today, I had a final for school, a meeting, and interview with a job, and I had to drop my dog off at the vet for an appointment which costed around $150. Krystin told me that there was nothing she could do, and offered me only a meal voucher. I was offended, and declined the voucher. I then spoke to customer service and they told me there was nothing they could do after informing me that the flight that they switched my flight to was delayed yet another hour and I would not arrive until 350pm. This is absolutely unacceptable, and I need a remedy. Far larger than a simple meal voucher. I have lost more money by missing my flight to Burbank because of the Atlanta airport lying to me then the flight was even worth. Also, I requested to speak to someone, but the representative on the phone said they didn't have a phone number to speak to anyone which adds to the cumbersome nature of this issue. Please contact me back, as soon as possible. I'm very upset at the situation. David Larkins"
Pros: "Everyone working the flight was wonderful"
Cons: "United, once again, was late and delayed."
Pros: "Comfy and we always fly united. Great experience"
Cons: "On the way back we had turbulence but that isn't anyone's fault."
Pros: "Easy check in and boarding, on time departure and arrival"
Cons: "Paid for wifi but it was difficult to get much done because pages loaded so slowly. One crew member was rude to a couple of passengers but other crew were very friendly"
Cons: "The staff member in the boarding gate was very unorganised she was announcing incorrectly two times , which make the passengers confused. Leg room inside the flight was to tight."
Pros: "Seat wouldn't recline"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "The trip TO the United States was bearable."
Cons: "This flight was a complete disaster. I ended up b=on a different flight to Newark, as my flight to Chicago got canceled. Then that fight was unable to land, so I spent hours in baltimore, and missed my connecting flight to Brussels. By the time I finally arrived, 4 hours late, to Newark, I had to spend 2 hours in a line to get re-book, for a flight the next night. I was compensated for all this mess with a $10 food voucher, and had to get a cab from the airport to the closest and cheapest hotel. My flight to Brussels was uneventful, save one rude flight attendant, and I got to school a day late."
Cons: "Changed our flight and also seats against our desire. Had to move back to the last row by the toilet in order to sit together."
Pros: "The snack was different than most airlines. It was a really big cream filled wafer. Went well with my coffee."
Cons: "At no fault of the airline, the guy sitting next to me was absolutely funky. By the end of the flight I was dizzy from holding my breath..."
Pros: "Nothing really"
Cons: "A/C was not working and hot air was blowing so the whole flight felt like we were in a sauna. Everyone was sweating, children crying. Called the flight attendant and no explanation other than "we know" but sounded more like "not our problem, deal with it". They should stop saying "let us know if there is anything we can do to make you comfortable". Meaningless. United and most US airlines really need to take a step back and figure out what's there vision of service. Most of them are in deep trouble, you can tell by how dissatisfied most of their employees are. How about bringing some top notch foreign airlines to compete?"
Pros: "Smooth as silk!!! On time and my flight attendant was super attentive helping with fitting in all the carry on bags in the overheads."
Cons: "I was put on wrong flight and arrived 4 hours after scheduled landing."
Cons: "I did not like the idea of having passengers wait so long to board the plane. I already had a stressful day before arriving the airport and did not need any more delays."
Pros: "Organized boarding"
Cons: "Did not allow our emotional support dog with the letter our doctor had written. Was told it needed his license number. It is no longer required! The letter is good with 2 other airlines which we travel on frequently."
Cons: "If we had followed the gate agents directions, we never would have made it to Denver- now we are still trying to get to Durango the next day"
Cons: "Not enough space to sit at the gate. There's been a trend lately to start checking all carry on bags due to space, but then you get on the plane and there's PLENTY of overhead space for your carry on."
Pros: "The boarding process was very simple and the crew was friendly."
Cons: "There are great entertainment options for in flight viewing, but there is no warning ahead of time that additional applications have to be downloaded in order to use them. At 30,000 feet it is impossible without paying for wifi. Also, I was actually looking forward to the little snack sized peanuts. Instead, you're given a salty trail mixed something that's seasoned very heavily. It just made me want to sneak water from the drink cart rather than curbing my hunger."
Pros: "you guys have tvs in the headrest and its spacious in the seating area. you all treated me way better than spirit airlines!"
Pros: "New plane friendly staff. Loved it will fly again. Soon"
Cons: "It took 15 hours to get here. But that can be helped"
Pros: "From beginning to end the flight and people were wonderful. I did plan ahead for delays preregistration for a lot of things and used the United app to stay inform. This first impression was truly a good one."
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "On time; uneventful flight. Perfect!"
Cons: "Instead of pretzels they handed out ranch flavored items; I have food allergies to seasonings. I prefer just plain pretzels"
Cons: "I didn't like how my flight was cancelled only MINUTES prior to boarding time. I signed up for text alerts and received NONE about the trip cancellation. I had to rebook my flight for the next day meaning I slept at the airport. US airways had to change my flight to using Delta airlines since that was the soonest upcoming flight and they never sent me the email promised with my new itinerary, my boarding pass didn't say my gate number but they verbally told me which one it will be. Come to find out, they gave me incorrect information and I had to run to the correct gate so I could be on time. Worst experience I ever had."
Pros: "All of the United personnel were pleasant, professional and very helpful. The connectivity for my devices at the boarding gate was an excellent idea."
Cons: "The seat on my return flight from Chicago to Atlanta was extremely uncomfortable. Also the charging ports at my chair in Chicago would not work."
Pros: "My daughter and I sat in Economy Plus which was great because it was towards the front and plenty of leg room. We both have long legs, so this extra comfort made our flight much better and relaxing."
Cons: "One of the Flight Attendants was crabby and unpleasant. This was the first time I've ever had an unpleasant Flight Attendant on a United Flight. I travel quite a bit for business and always try to fly United. I always carry a large purse which always stays on my lap and her and I went back and forth because she insisted that I put it on the floor under the seat. This really upset me."
Pros: "The stewardess was personable. The staff at the United Club reception desk, helped with a seating problem on my return trip."
Cons: "The climate of both planes was not great. It may have to do with the age of the plane."
Pros: "Hated it. No personnel for guidance or help. The One employee there was rude and non communicative Changed carousels without notification. My luggage ended up in another section of baggage and I had to walk in search occur helped by some foreign travelers from a different United flight."
Cons: "Baggage retrieval. Confusing. Rude employee. Unhelpful. My husband circled the airport 4 times while I hunted down my bag and found it in a different location. It was a horrible experience."
Cons: "I was in the last group boarding and the gate agent made me check my carry on bag. I explained it was important to me to keep my carry on with me on the plane. Instead of helping me make it work I was forced to check it at the gate. Upon boarding, there were plenty of overhead spaces for my bag. There was then a mechanical failure, a fuel pump that was faulty. This is not anyone's fault or at all controllable, but the way things were handled was ridiculous. There was 1 gate agent for 2.5 hours handling everyone who needed to re book. In my case I simply needed to cancel my flight (because I had already missed my meeting) and needed to get my bag brought up so I could go home. I was told I needed to wait in line. So I waited for 3 hours. Then waited another 1.5 hours for my bag to come up from bag check. The agents there were not all that helpful or concerned about my experience yesterday whatsoever. I will likely never fly united again and I travel a lot. I will also likely express my dislike for united to anyone I can going forward. In one flight, one experience, you lost this customer for good."
Pros: "The leg space was great."
Cons: "The wifi never worked in either of the planes. There was mechanical failure and we were laid over in New Jersey for 3 hours. I paid $1200 dollars for two tickets that were suppose to fly us out to San Juan from Atlanta but a layover in New Jersey had to happen first. However the lay over ended up being 3 hours vs 1 hour and we missed a night in our hotel because of it. We landed in San Juan about 3 am and we took United flight from Atlanta at 3pm the afternoon before so we were beyond frustaited being that it was our Anniversary and all. So I will try not to fly United EVER AGAIN."
Pros: "Getting off the plane!"
Cons: "Both planes were late, stewardess was extremely rude. My son was having an emergency heart surgery and I literally would have made the 15hr drive faster. Thanks for nothing"
Flight was late at boarding and, once it took off and landed, crew team was not at the gate on time. We had to wait again over 20 minutes to park the airplane at the gate.
Cons: "Did not fly the had to change the flight frontier website does not work with safari. I change the flight an hour after I mad the flight and they said because I did not use google chrome that the change were not made they waned me to pay 402 to change a flight that I booked for 194. I could have bought two more tickets for 284. The told them that is what I need to do. By the revues I saw on line the did the same thing to at least 10 other people. Frontier said that a customer only has 4 hour to make a change to a flight. I talk to sever travel agents and was told we have 24 hours."
Pros: "Very quick flight, 45 min early"
Cons: "Cheaper baggage and free drink"
Cons: "Someone stole a coat out of my checked bag."
Pros: "The flight, service, and airport was great."
Cons: "Security check was over an hour long. The entire process was tiring standing in line for a great deal of time."
Pros: "Arrived in one piece"
Cons: "Departure was approximately 40 minutes late due to the plane arriving late. If you fly Frontier it’s you know... business as usual. I fly a lot and every other time with this airline has the same issue. Upon arrival we waited approximately 32 minutes until we were able to deplane. Crew unapologetically explains that since plane is going to maintenance we are at a shorter gate hence the delay - it is what it is. We are getting off some makeshift jetway. What?! At this point the passengers are ready to walk down the tarmac. I’m just glad it’s over."
Pros: "Flight was uneventful. No hassles getting boarded and during the flight."
Cons: "I really would prefer not having to pay extra for seats and carry on. i understand that a fee needs to be charged but just do that up front when I book."
Pros: "Having my flight rearranged when I arrived do the desk for the second time, another lady at the counter was super nice to me and apologized for the service prior. She said that though my flight was not until 9:45 that I could check my bag in at present time (7:00 pm) I was shocked and so glad to be able to do so."
Cons: "Surprising extra fee for seating. I knew that baggage would be extra but seating?? Then I missed my flight to due a bridge going out in ATL and traveling from SC to the airport. The plane had not yet boarded yet I was told I could not check in and would have to wait for the next flight the next day. I was told I was going have to wait. I did not believe that there were no more flights to Denver. To my surprise there was a flight later that evening and that I could go in that if there was room but would have to pay for $100.00 additional. I have never had a time where an unfortunate circumstance came up and I had to pay extra for rearrage in flight. The lady at the ticket was rude attitude , "she asked if I was ok?" which I thought was odd but when I answered her yes she responded "I'm here to help you" and as I was leaving the counter she said "now check in at 9:15 not 9:11 or 9:20. Remark was not appreciated."
Cons: "There were no snacks, not one drink was free, and the seats did not even recline. I will not be purchasing any further trips with Frontier no matter the price."
Pros: "Boarding the plane was simple and like most other airlines"
Cons: "First and hopefully last time flying Frontier. Carry-on baggage charge of $60 per person at the gate and only $35 online...added bag online to avoid additional fee. Boarding was fine, but had to wait 45 minutes past take-off time for mechanic to sign off on all maintenance items for plane. All the while, the crew stood around and didn't make anyone aware of anything, almost like it was something that happens to them all the time. Very unprofessional and clearly not focused on the actual people on the plane. The flight attendants were chatting with each other like they were off work and NOT attending to anyone. Very poor crew."
Pros: "Friendly and efficient staff, perfect landing!"
Cons: "There was no in flight entertainment."
Pros: "We got to where we were going."
Cons: "The boarding part. They tell us at the last minute that we need to pay for carry-ons, why not at check in? Seats do not recline. Seats are uncomfortable."
Pros: "The baggage claim girl in Atlanta was Wonderful she was very pleasant to me and my boyfriend and expressed a genuine concern about my unfortunate circumstance. Mariah (Frontire baggage claim girl) did everything she could to make sure I got my Bag back and called as soon as it arrived Thanks Mariah !!!!"
Cons: "They lost my bags I was flying to Atlanta from Phoenix and my bag ended up in St Louis ... i would assume that if your going to make me pay for my checked bag it would atleast make it to the correct destination. The crew wasn't as pleasant and friendly as I'd like them to be but did there jobs (I guess) then we had to sit and wait for a gate .... the only reason why a gate finally opened up was because people started asking for snacks. Overall there was nothing special about this flight I was upset that I didn't have my luggage from the beggening of my trip but the day before I left my bag was recovered . The ticket was inexpensive but I'm not sure if it was worth the hasstle Then I had to pay for my bags coming back as well. Suggestion maybe have a 50% voucher ad a courtesy from sending a bag to the wrong destination."
Pros: "Hated the entire experience!"
Cons: "Flying with Frontier had to be one of the most traumatic experiences of my life. I arrived at the airport to find that they could not check me in when in fact my original Atlanta to New York plane had not left. The agent lied and made it seem like the plane left so I purchased a $99 ticket to Atlanta to Trenton, NJ, a local airport that was 1 hour and 46 minutes away from New York. I purchased the ticket and went to the LGA gate just in case and called the 801 number to be rebooked back on my original flight. The rep on the phone shared I would not be charged the $99 but today, 1/6/17 the charge posted on my credit card. I had to go to Trenton, NJ, send $33 for the NJ Transit, plus 2 Uber rides totaling $53."
Pros: "It wasn't over sold or a full flight and there wasn't time wasted boarding."
Cons: "Baggage fees and we hit turbulence during take off and the pilot never made an announcement. It was stormy in ATL so you'd like to be warned. The flight attendant eventually made an announcement after there were screams as the plane dipped suddenly creating a roller coaster drop effect. Also the seats were impossible to get comfortable in, the arm rests too small and they didn't go up so although no one was next to me I was trapped in my seat. Also because I was in an exit row it didn't recline. Oh and the reading lights are aggressive. I wish I'd packed an eye mask to block out that light and the light from the exit sign. Thankfully it was a short flight. The airfare is cheap but after you pay all the fees you might as well book on a more comfortable airline."
Pros: "the seating for which I paid $20 was spacious"
Cons: "I think this flight only leaves once in the evening from LGA and they couldn't get that right. I didn't realize there was a fee for carry-on and since I paid the fee round-trip, I might as well paid another airline that charged slightly higher for the entire trip. No complimentary drinks or snacks - really!"
Pros: "The price was good, but still not worth the money. Landings and takeoffs very smooth."
Cons: "Denver to Atlanta one of two bags lost. Delayed our trip to Asheville by several hours and arrived in the dark, much to our chagrin. The bag was 'driven' directly to the house the next day. On the return, the bags were nearly an hour late before appearing. We were over charged for bag fees. Computer did not show the checked bag purchase at booking, so were charged full 'at the gate' price. Seats are uncomfortable and do not recline. Rows too close together. Every seat filled, making the flight noisy, crowded and uncomfortable. The flight was definitely NOT worth the savings."
Cons: "They cancelled the flight in the last minute withiut even sending out an email. Some of the passengers even went to the gate and they said flight was cancelled then. It was ridiculous how frontier treated customers. I literally had to pay more than $500 for my one way flight with another airline. I will never fly with frontier ever again."
Pros: "There was a lot of turbulence from thunderstorms, more than I've ever experienced, and the crew was very good about keeping people in their seats for everyone's safety. I appreciated that. Everyone was very friendly and the flight was reasonably priced."
Cons: "There was no entertainment option at all. Even though I expect it, it is hard to stomach the cost for carry-on items."
Pros: "The flight was comfortable, the staff was efficient and polite."
Cons: "Well, the flight was economical all the way and therefore there was no entertainment."
Pros: "Got us from A to B. No perks."
Cons: "The seats were not comfortable"
Pros: "The seats were comfortable but it was dirty. Garbage and crumbs on floor."
Cons: "That it was dirty."
Pros: "The flight from ATL to SFO was very inexpensive, but I thought the service and comfort equalled that on the major airlines. Unfortunately, my checked bag didn't arrive in SFO, where I was connecting on to a flight to Hawaii. Happily, when I asked to speak with a Frontier representative at SFO to notify them of the lost bag the rep arrived promptly and was very knowledgeable and professional. She arranged for my bag to be overnight FEDEXed (at Frontier's expense) to my hotel in Honolulu. I couldn't have had better service."
Cons: "The checked bag didn't make the flight."
Pros: "The only thing I liked about Frontier was getting off of their plane."
Cons: "Where to start? The 5 hour delay was horrible. The customer service was non existent. I've never see such rude people. We asked for their names to report them and they refused to give us their names. They lost half of our luggage. All of this was just the outbound flight. On our return flight we walked up to the gate right as they were closing the door. Thy refused to let us get on but offered to rebook us another flight 2 days later. Asked the speak to a manager and it turns out she was a manager....lol. We had to buy another flight on Southwest Airlines to the tune of $325. All of this and never once did anyone apologize or try to do anything to make it better. There is a reason Frontier is cheap. Do yourself a favor and stay as far away from them as you can."
Pros: "Frontier is a good airline and they get the job (of getting you there) done. The seats are comfortable and the attendants are friendly. No complaints."
Cons: "I think I may have flown my last flight on Frontier. The cost of the tickets was great, and then I found out why. They charge you extra for EVERYTHING. I had to pay extra to get an assigned seat. (Some of the seats are very expensive!) I had to pay extra to check my luggage and extra for my carry-on luggage. My personal item (small backpack) was free. I had to pay extra for food / drink, too. Not a meal and an alcoholic beverage, I'm talking about peanuts and soda. Frontier will almost certainly figure out a way to charge us for the air we breathe during the flight. My "cheap" tickets turned out to be incredibly expensive. Thanks for being deceptive, Frontier!"
Pros: "Not much about this flight did i like. At first I thought I liked the price until I realized I had to pay $30 each way for my carry-on...really."
Cons: "I did not like that I had to pay $60 for my carry-on. I did not like that my seat was completely uncomfortable it did not even recline the slightest. No TV no radio even my tray was half the size of a normal plane. Don't fly this airline not worth it."
Cons: "Lack of organization and a delay of 5+ hours on a 4-hour flight."
Pros: "One gate agent was very apologetic for the delay, and did try to keep us informed. She was the only professional we saw working that day."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by four hours due to a co-pilot who called in sick. They had to fly in another crewmember from Orlando to Atlanta. Frontier did not offer to help those needing to change flights to other airlines. When we were allowed to board, one woman tried to get her son to board as an unaccompanied minor ( a service which she had paid for), and was ignored by the flight attendants assisting with boarding. Once aboard the plane, a flight attendant got on the PA system and stated the delay was not the flight attendants fault, it was a pilot who delayed the plane. Very Unprofessional. No free or additional services were offered to the passengers aboard the flight, however we were given a $10 breakfast voucher during the delay. There were many other appalling aspects of the crew member's behavior. Too many to mention here. I will not fly Frontier again, nor will I recommend it to anyone else."
Pros: "Attention to detail. Outstanding miles membership program."
Cons: "Notta thing"
Pros: "I thought the seats were more comfortable than Spirit jets."
Cons: "due to the length of the flight, no cabin service was offered, but I did ask for coffee and it was provided. Great overall experience"
Pros: "Relatively smooth boarding process and friendly crew"
Cons: "Pay for everything under the sun"
Cons: "The Flight was over 2 hours late and we were stranded at the Denver airport at 2:00am in the morning.The tickets stated the gate was D1 but instead it was D1A and we just happened to find out by the other passenger talking about another city. We were not informed of the change. Did not like that we were not allowed a free carry on and there was no comp. snack or drink! Seat were not comfortable at all. The tray was ridiculously tiny."
Pros: "Crew was efficient and friendly."
Cons: "The gentleman flight attendant was more difficult to understand over the speaker than the ladies."
Pros: "Price real good if I hadn't been change $60 for luggage"
Cons: "Extra money for luggage tried to charge for carry on bag coming from NY $40rxtrs amt was more than Delta or Southwest plus flight return too late spent day in NY no one at baggage check-in at 10:45 had to wait until 2or3:00pm"
Pros: "The crew was friendly."
Cons: "The ticket price doesn't include the price of your seat. What I thought was a good deal turned out to be more expensive than almost every other airline for the trip I took. What should have been a $340 trip will now be close to $500. I could have flown with Delta for $400. Delta planes are much more comfortable. Extremely disappointed with my experience. I will never pay full price for another frontier ticket again."
Pros: "I loved the price of the tickets. My children spend the summer between Iowa and Alabama. So we travel a lot. I normally drive to Kentucky to meet up with Grandma to let them go north for part of the summer. However, this year I have planned a honeymoon, and even planned going to Virginia two weekends back to back. I thought I would fly to St. Louis from Atlanta to cut down on the driving. (I tend to get sick on road trips anyway, a flight would be nice). I found these tickets for around $50 each. I needed 3. Got them. The flight to St Louis was quick. We landed 20 mins ahead of schedule. (Made my return trip great as I was back on the same plane and was sorta freaking out about making it back to the gate in time) Landed in St Louis walked to baggage claim met up with Grandma returned with time to spare. The return flight was the same. I did not like the seats. I ended up with a massive migraine no fault of the airline but I would have loved to have been a little more comfortable. It has been a long time from my last flight and this one. The price of baggage went up. (As well as tickets which is one reason its been a while) I did notice that the airline is wanting you to prepay for baggage when you purchase the tickets. In the long run makes in SO MUCH EASIER! And with the most recent issues with TSA and getting through security that speeds things up. I paid for one checked bag. And using the frontier site was cheaper than I would have been charged at the airport. Overall I can't complain. I did make it to and from my destination on time and safely. My bag was in one piece. The seats not being the best is a minor detail. Oh. And unlike some of the other flights this one did not offer free drinks and snacks. I've flown Southwest, and Delta I was offered a soft drink and a small bag of something. I was offered to purchase these from this line. Found it odd."
Pros: "There was a lot of turbulence, but the pilot handled it well! The main flight attendant was quite comical over the PA as she made announcements."
Cons: "The seats did not adjust to lean back. There was a crying baby/toddler which of course could not be controlled , but he started all over again each time the plane hit turbulence."
Cons: "There is a lot to complain about with this airline. I cannot comment on the comfort, food not entertainment because I missed my flight. Granted the flight missing was not the fault of the airline however I would have imagined that the staff would have told me in no way would I make my flight with the security lines the way they were. Once we made it through we ran the entire length of the airport to try and make the flight in hopes that they might delay the plane. That's is not the whole complaint because it happens. However; my bags flew with the flight I missed. The ticket agent assured us the bags would get to the destination and I could pick them once I arrived on the later flight (through a different airline). When I arrived NO employees where to be found. The "helpline" not helpful not even to tell me if the bags were there and lock and I could get them in the morning. Instead I was talk to condescending and rude, thanks to Kim in Colorado. I stayed the night over since my home is 3 hours from the airport. Next morning at 8:30 I call to speak to someone, helpline again unhelpful. Could not tell me when someone would be there or anything about my bags. I show up the airport. No staff. I waited for an hour and half for a ticket agent. Once I posted on their social media page that I was unhappy that person told me when they would be there and their hours. NOT THE HELPLINE but I already stood around picked up my bags and was out of there. I will never fly this airline. They nickel and dime you and have terrible customer service."
Pros: "Cheap flight, I caught on ahead of time the extra pricing for luggage and planned accordingly. Smooth landings on both flights and they arrived on schedule."
Cons: "Seats weren't great on comfort."
Pros: "We didn't crash and I had lots of leg room. I had to unknowingly pay for the leg room."
Cons: "They advertise really cheap flights however they don't tell you that you'll have to pay $60 for a carry-on bag. That's right.. any Carry on bags. Checked bags were also $60+. I also had to pay $50 for my "premium" seat because I didn't choose a seat at check-in. By premium they mean you get a few extra inches of leg room. On a 4.5 hour flight plus 1 hour of sitting on the runway, the only free amenity was a small cup of water. I will never be using this airline again."
Pros: "I was charged $40 for my bag, $2 for a soda that I didn't finish and my seat was $42. The 6 gate crew members in Atlanta were a joke (1 was eating a bag of cheetos). They allowed 4 people to run up the gangway to the plane without checking their tickets before the plane was cleaned from the previous flight. They had to call security to be sure the men never made it on board. They were extremely unprofessional and unorganized. Upon embarkation I had to remind her that I had a ticket that she needed to check! I required assistance with my bag, and had to shove it under my seat because i couldn't lift it. I will not be using them again. BTW, my American ticket was $26, included 1 bag and beverage service."
Cons: "I have never flown an airline that has to explain to the passengers that they must sit in their assigned seats. This statement was repeated several times during the boarding process. I have never experienced a flight quite like this one, the gate agents boarded no less than 6 or 7 times to escort people to their seats. We were over 30 minutes late leaving because of "weather" but I believe that it's code for incompetence. The flight crew were the only professionals on board. I have to say the woman at the ticket counter was quite helpful and very calm even when passengers became upset with her for charging the bag fee. The flight attendants were friendly but not attentive."
Pros: "Everyone was efficient and pleasant."
Cons: "My husband and I are not frequent fliers, so we were stunned to find out during on-line booking that there was an additional charge to pick our own seats. I thought I must be doing something wrong and called to find out that I could only avoid the fee by letting them pick our seats for us. Definitely an uncomfortable feeling to HOPE that we are together in decent seats. Then we got to the plane and were stunned to find out that we had to pay an additional $120 for our two carry-on bags. To add insult to injury -- you also have to pay for ANYTHING you eat or drink (including water). I opted for a glass of ice to quench my thirst. We will do more research about extra fees before our next trip and probably avoid Frontier, especially since the price they quote has nothing to do with how much you will eventually pay!"
Pros: "It left on time and was efficient"
Cons: "The fact that I can't use our TSA pre-check like we do with the other airlines. I paid extra for a exit row and the seat did not tilt back?? I would like to have known otherwise I would not have paid the extra. When the stewardess came through she made it sound like she was only offering snacks you paid for and they never came back around. I just wanted a glass of water but they never came through offering that? It just seems there is an up sale at every turn so the low price fare that you think you got is really the same as everybody else"
Pros: "The flight was better than the flight going to Atlanta because the plain was newer and had better seats. The flight crew was great going and coming back."
Pros: "The guy next to me on the flight was really nice as were the flight attendants."
Cons: "I was charged twice for my bag. I had one bag. I went to the kiosk to get my ticket and was almost finished. I swiped to pay for my bag as a carry on and an error message came up and said to see attendant. I did. There were three people there who had no idea what was going on. I tried to explain what had happened and they kept interrupting me and telling me I probably was going to miss my Friday evening flight as it was overbooked. They asked me if I'd like to check my bag and I said sure. I agreed because I never finished my kiosk purchase or agreed to pay the fee on it. The attendant takes my card and swipes it. Then said "It looks like you paid twice. Call this number" and hands me a paper with an 801 number on it. The gate and departure time changed several times. We wee supposed to leave at 7:30 and didn't leave until after 8pm. This was an awful experience and I won't be flying Frontier again."
Pros: "I liked how quick they were checking in and the lady that checked me and my friend in Denver to Atlanta was the nicest and the most helpful Customer Service Representative. She was very kind."
Cons: "The lady that checked me in was friendly and helpful at the front desk in Atlanta but the lady that checked my friend in from Atlanta to Denver that was working right beside the lady that was checking me in was so rude! We were both really tired because we had to leave at 2am to make it to our flight so we barely had any sleep and she asked my friend where she was flying to and my friend accidentally said Atlanta and the lady was just really rude because she made a simple mistake. She was snarky and condescending."
Pros: "The seats had a surprising amount of legroom, and the staff was nice (though i'm not sure why there were as many as a normal flight from another airline, since they don't do anything beyond the safety demo)"
Cons: "You are not adequately made aware that you will be charged for carry on unlike other airlines. And in doing so, the price of the ticket goes from being impressively cheap to being more than a flight from another airline that has more included amenities, like actual refreshements and free carry-ons. You also get charged for just selecting a seat, not a special seat, but ANY SEAT AT ALL. So the price you initially see when searching for flights is quite misleading. In reality, you should ad at least 50 bucks to any frontier ticket to get a truer picture of what the price would be for a normal passenger with a single carry-on that wants a particular seat."
Pros: "The flight itself was ok. I especially liked the humor the captain used while going through the routine safety explanation! Also, despite being delayed by about 30 minutes, we still somehow arrived at our destination city early/ on time."
Cons: "My girlfriend pointed out that you guys do not have air-sickness bags available."
Pros: "First the flight itself was incredibly smooth. No turbulence just an easy controlled flight. I felt very safe."
Cons: "One of the male attendants was very condescending, bossy, and rude. I didn't k know there were so many fees! $40 just for a carry on! Charges for drinks and snacks?? Plus if you want a seat that reclines it's $27 extra??? it's very uncomfortable to be on the redeye and have to sit straight up for 4 hours."
