Pros: "Great crew. Quick service."
Cons: "Plane is a bit older with tiny tv screens."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "We were stranded at the airport for hours"
Pros: "Love the free WiFi. That was awesome and somewhat unexpected."
Cons: "There was no coffee left on board when serving the second round - kind of hard to wake up from a 6 hour flight."
Pros: "Nothing really. It was as expected, but not more."
Cons: "Seats were cramped for all the talk of legroom"
Pros: "Very good service"
Cons: "More food choices"
Pros: "Facilities and amenities (WiFi, unlimited snacks, comfortable seat)"
Cons: "Gate agents consistently telling paxs to SIT DOWN if their boarding group hasn’t been called yet."
Pros: "Crew is always fantastic, JetBlue crew members never let me down!"
Pros: "I slept throughout the flight."
Cons: "I did not experience any disturbance."
Cons: "Nobody speaks english. Announcement also in Portuguese. Very difficult for foreigners. Gate people are awful."
Pros: "In flight entertainment was great"
Pros: "Not too full of a flight"
Cons: "It was delayed 3 hours"
Pros: "The seat was good, snacks is good."
Cons: "I wish the crew would did a little more to ask the people behind me stop playing the loud music and talking loud. Also rap music with bad language with children next to it is not a good idea. I actually like rap but not listening loud with the speaker on with kids in the plane is not considerate."
Pros: "Comfort in seats and friendly service"
Cons: "TV movie music"
Cons: "Our return flight was delayed over 4 hours and they didnt keep us properly informed and ahead of time . We were travelling with kids and it’s was stressful to keep them at airport for so long . They didn’t provide us with any dinner or meal vouchers either"
Pros: "Gabe me a free wine"
Pros: "the carry-on luggages were checked-in free at boarding to avoid chaos of the over-head bins space shortage"
Pros: "Friendly crew. Extra snacks and drinks were a big plus on a long flight."
Cons: "There were not enough people that checked their carryons, which lead to a long delay in boarding. Jetblue people should have demanded more checked bags to avoid a long delay in boarding. The flight was painfully long due to snow, which is understandable."
Pros: "Best food and entertainment availability"
Cons: "When we arrived from hawaii to SFO airport we had to exit in order to get our tickets for our next flight (SFO to FLL) and we had to go through security again for this reason. No one around to help, we even called from one of the airport telephones but no one answered."
Pros: "I like the comfort of the flight and the kindness of the crew"
Cons: "I'm disappointed that my carry-on has been charged like a suitcase, that has stolen time to reach my booked house in the city"
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 temperature in the plane was freezing for the first hour it was only when passengers had to ask it to warm up"
Pros: "It was really nice having a USB charger under every seat."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed by 2 hours and I was only notified when I had arrived at the airport."
Pros: "The flight was smooth, efficient and friendly crew. For a 5hr flight, the snacks were very sparse."
Cons: "A full meal"
Cons: "The door wouldn’t open once we arrived in Detroit"
Pros: "The crew and ground staff were accomodating."
Pros: "The flight was comfortable enough once it got going after a 5-hour delay."
Cons: "Flight from FLL to SFO was delayed by 5 hours due to a technical issue with the plane. Upon arrival I received an apology email from JetBlue and a flight voucher. However, I will also be filing a claim with the airfare app to seek reimbursement for the enourmous inconvenience this delay caused."
Pros: "return flight was better service"
Pros: "The delays were understandable as it was a snow storm. The crew was great."
Cons: "My entertainment system was broken, and on a coast to coast flight in the middle of the night where sleeping is impossible, that really sucked."
Pros: "I love JetBlue's hot towels at the end of long flights. I also love that the have free (Good) snacks. They do have considerably more leg room and bigger seats, and the free WiFi is fabulous!"
Cons: "The cleanliness of the plane in general could've been MUCH cleaner, but I understand that with quick turnaround times and getting in and out on time this is difficult. The air temperature was inconsistent sometimes too cold, sometimes too warm which made staying comfortable difficult. I wish they had more fresh options on the later leaving flights. Also, two of the crew members were SUPER chatty all throughout our evening flight and I could hear them through the earplugs."
Pros: "Cabin crew were polite and cheerful"
Cons: "Long delay"
Cons: "BOARDING WENT SMOOTHLY, FLIGHT ATTENDANTS WERE GOOD, FREE ENTERTAINMENT WAS GREAT, SEATS WERE COMFORTABLE."
Pros: "The staff was very nice."
Cons: "We wasnt told how to use the tvs and where to put earbuds."
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: "Smooth flight everything moved pretty timely"
Cons: "Check in was a little hectic"
Pros: "JetBlue has always been decent. I like that this trip the flight was an easy board on and off."
Cons: "With all Planes now it seems the seats are for quantity and less quality. So it's fairly uncomfortable to sit in them. Plus when you have back problems that doesn't help. Cheap ticket will equal a cheap seat."
Cons: "Delayed and departure time changed but wasn’t reflected until I was at the gate. They also changed my seat from the front to very back of the plane"
Pros: "Amazing service from start to finish, movies for really long flights, comfortable seats and always a pleasurable experience :)"
Cons: "Leg room is tight but I can live with that"
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!"
Cons: "Hour delay on runway in Long Beach No gate in SFO so two rounds of buses to even get to the terminal Headphone port for tv was broken"
Pros: "Food was really good, but the cabin crew were up to JetBlue's normal outstanding service"
Cons: "The range of movies is still pretty poor (if you're a frequent JetBlue traveller)"
Pros: "fee movies"
Cons: "couldn't find the movie that I started watching on my previous flight"
Pros: "Timeliness, crew courtesy."
Cons: "Chatty girl next to me on cell phone pretending to be a big shot. Our lite didn't work. Seemed like old, old plane rattling"
Pros: "Staff was great-- welcoming, professional."
Cons: "My audio plugin didn't work, and I spent the trip pressing it in by hand."
Cons: "Late departure; headphone jack on my armrest was faulty so I had to hold the plug in the whole time if I wanted to hear sound of movies; once we were at the gate in SFO, it took a good 10 minutes for them to open the door to let us off."
Cons: "The Jet Blue counter person was not helpful at all providing direction to us from International Terminal to Domestic terminal C. No help at all to passengers who are not familiar with Logan Airport. Major major disappointment!"
Cons: "flight was delayed"
Pros: "Entertainment and timeliness of the departure and arrival."
Pros: "everything on flight was excellent!"
Cons: "at time of flight: the price!"
Cons: "Had to check basic backpack at the last minute because no overhead space. Unclear instructions as to where to pick it up on the SFO end, leading to further delays getting out of the airport. (Already landing close to 2am at the beginning of a work week - minutes count.)"
Pros: "Delayed"
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: "of everything"
Cons: "Nothing, all right"
Cons: "Better food offerings"
Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Delta always delivers!"
Pros: "Crew was friendly, capt. had smooth take off and landing."
Cons: "Late gate change threw me for a loop. Had dinner with some friends in terminal before they caught a different flight. Walked to my gate only to find flight had changed to a different terminal and gate. Ended up fine because there was a delay with the lane switch, but made me a little anxious."
Cons: "Value for the price."
Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "Took off late. Other than that very comfortable and great experience"
Pros: "Friendly service, smooth flight"
Cons: "Some seats were double booked, which was not realized until the plane was fully boarded, which caused very late departure, which almost caused us to miss our connection in Paris. Also the bathroom became a mess - slow to restock toilet paper, etc."
Pros: "We eventually arrived"
Cons: "Then, in Atlanta, the flight was delayed 3-4 times, and our departure was more than an hour late. Overall, not one to be proud of, Delta"
Pros: "Better than average entertainment system for domestic flights."
Cons: "Boarding done against logic: my seat was in the last 5 rows of the cabin and I was scheduled to board in the final group. When I got to my seat the first 30 rows were nearly fully, but the back of the plane was half empty. The whole time the gate agent was urging passengers to move faster through the aisle, but Delta should really rethink its boarding strategy. It shouldn't take 40 minutes to board a 757."
Pros: "Transfer f from first flight leg"
Cons: "Food and the 757 lay out"
Pros: "Food was decent and crew were nice enough"
Cons: "Seat space was small and cramped. Entertainment was poor unfortunately"
Pros: "The staff are friendly and passengers quickly get on and off the plane."
Cons: "I travel this route (ATL - MGM) often and it seems like half the time I use Delta there is an issue with the plane including times when the flight has been cancelled. This time the plane left the gate and some fifteen minutes after sitting on the tarmac was taken back to the gate. The issue was said to be an element that keeps a sensor from freezing in extreme cold weather. The less than one hour flight took two hours to complete. This should have been dealt with as a maintenance issue but Delta doesn't seem to think so. The planes on this route make Delta a LOT of money as it is one of the most profitable routes in the US. You would think Delta could invest in keeping better maintained planes on the route."
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."
Pros: "Crew was kind and responsive."
Cons: "Older plane so seats were very crammed. My screen was not calibrated correctly so I couldn’t rewind or pause movies. No charging option for phone. WiFi was spotty."
Cons: "I will avoid middle seat from now on"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Take a long time to taxi to the gate & getting off the plane."
Cons: "late leaving, arriving and taxing."
Pros: "What I liked was getting to my house."
Cons: "The air-conditioning was extremely cold; on the positive side, I was given a blanket. The plane did not have any kind of tv screen in which to watch films or programs. Space was unbelievably tight between seats and rows; I cannot imagine a horizontally or vertically big person having any level of comfort. In general, the service was quite poor, making me wonder how does Delta treat the flight attendants, for they seemed tired and careless. The above did not happen in any of my other flights: Atlanta-Guadalajara, Guadalajara-CDMX, CDMX-Atlanta."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Wouldn’t let us take our carry-on because they had overbooked and had no more room in overhead. Delayed our first flight and then our connecting flight left *early*. (If you know you have customers with short connections, why leave early to make their connections even shorter?) Then told us they would not pay for our hotel since it wasn’t their fault. Gave us a “discount” with a nearby hotel that was more expensive than what you could book it for online. Had to wait several hours for them to get us back the carry-on luggage that they insisted we check in the first place."
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: "Great selection of movies"
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 movie selection is very good"
Cons: "Both boarding the flight and getting off the flight were severely delayed. The flight attendants also seemed to ignore half the plane when handing out drinks and when picking up trash. I had to flag someone down after they had simply walked past my row both times."
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."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 2 hrs. Annoying!"
Pros: "Quick and easy boarding. Quick flight"
Cons: "Audio entertainment quite limited"
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!!"
Cons: "Force me to take a bad seat"
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: "I didn't get a chance to get the gentleman's name at the gate, but he was able to get me on the earlier flight (since I had NO luggage and only 1 carry on that fit under my seat) and didn't charge me the stupid fee for filling a seat that was empty when I was giving up a seat on a later flight that would accommodate those who missed this earlier flight. Nice to see kindness in an industry that seizes fees on every opportunity."
Cons: "When I got to the airport they were not helping me to get to the right place to get my flight I lost it"
Pros: "We'd paid extra for main cabin so hot to choose seats and got in flight entertainment.. Staff were friendly."
Cons: "No free wifi."
Pros: "Nothing."
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: "Excellent video selection, Sweetwater 420, cookies were good. Landed 20 minutes early."
Cons: "Boarded 20 minutes late. Very very cold. Bathroom horribly disgusting. Coffee too cold."
Pros: "They arrived on schedule."
Cons: "Seated in the rear middle seat. I had no options to select a seat when I checked in or made my reservation that wasn't an extra charge. I'mover 6' tall and middle seats are painful, especially cross country. Airlines need to be a little more attentive to their customers' needs. If a passenger is taller than average, and the flight is more than 60 minutes, provide comfortable seating at no extra charge. If a customer has a short layover, which their system knows about since it is the sourve of the flight plans, put the customer toward the front of the aircraft since these flights are habitually late and customers end up having to sprint through airports to try to make connections."
Pros: "Both flights were on-time, no gate changes. Staff was friendly enough, and seat back entertainment was appreciated. Everything went as you always hope it does for flights!"
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."
Pros: "Movies"
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: "Entertainment is now free."
Cons: "This was the fourth first class leg of our overall trip and the first three flights on Delta were great. The attendants were pleasant and even fun. I have allergies and requested a special meal on all legs. No problem on the first three flights. All attendants approached me to confirm my allergy and the special meal. They were very polite. But on this flight, the attendant didn't speak with me about it at all. She tried to give me the regular meal. When I explained I needed an allergy free meal (mind you this was first class), I was told I could not get it and got no apology or other accommodation. Her attitude was take it or leave it. I found this interesting since on two of the other flights an announcement was made about another passenger with an allergy to peanuts so no one could have them on the flights and the attendants were very concerned."
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."
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: "On the flight I got on the 8:20 to Reagan the flight attendances were wonderful! Defiantly made up for me having a aweful time on the 7:20 flight. I loved your flight attendants on this flight!"
Cons: "So I arrived in Atl was on standby for the 7:20 flight to Dca airport I had already paid $50 for standby! I got cleared for this flight and bumped to delta comfort. I was super excited to finally get upgraded! Then the plane had problems we were then again delayed and had to deplane. We were told this would be a 2 hour delay. I proceeded to try an get on the next flight at 8:20 while asking about a window seat the lady told me I would have to pay an additional $19! Well I had already paid $50. So the nice lady put me on that flight after I had already asked for window seat. She put me in the middle seat! I get that planes have problems and flights are delayed! There was so much bad yesterday then good and I feel like delta should know. It's more and more bad everytime I fly! Please fix these problems!"
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."
Cons: "A tv on plane"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "Provide coffee at least"
Cons: "Didn't get snack. WiFi entertainment wasn't working."
Cons: "50 minute wait for a gate to deplane. How could there not be a gate at 10:30 pm? It’s not like our arrival was a surprise!?"
Pros: "The seats were decent for a domestic flight. Everything was timely."
Cons: "More food. Better entertainment."
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."
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."
Pros: "Plane was clean"
Cons: "My belongings stolen"
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!!"
Pros: "All good"
Pros: "Legroom"
Cons: "Snacks, non usable Wi-Fi"
Pros: "Entertainment system was up to date with personal screens."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by an hour. The new departure time was moved twice after we were already invited for boarding. Attendants failed to communicate new times or make any announcements absolutely whatsoever. Just stood in line to board for almost an hour."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Was missed due to delayed flight"
Cons: "The flight was delayed. The food was not great. There is not a lot of space in these planes, and it was a long flight. There is no power supply."
Cons: "No signage for checking bags. Was total cluster. No one knew where to take bags or what line to be in. Employees kept telling us we were in the wrong line but didn’t seem to tell us what was the correctly line."
Cons: "Aircraft at least in our section was very cold the whole flight. My young son was very cold even in a sweatshirt. I was very cold in a sweater, shirt, and jeans. I asked a crew member if they might have a blanket to cover my son, he brusquely replied “No blankets, no pillows!” So we just froze for 5.5 hours."
Cons: "headphone jack defective but more importantly the SFO arrival gate not available for over 45 minutes...."
Pros: "Flight attendants actually seemed to care about what they were doing. Seats were pretty comfy for once."
Cons: "Flight delayed with no explanation or apologies. Putting two and two together from the airport monitors it looks like they had to swap planes due to a scheduling or maintenance issue. Just another chapter in the neverending saga of delayed American airlines flights"
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: "Quick and did good job"
Cons: "After flying Japan Airlines I wish there were more free food and entertainment"
Pros: "Food was better than expected."
Cons: "Flight was too warm."
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: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "No entertainment."
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Pros: "Wasn't completely full."
Cons: "Nothing"
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: "Food and entertainment was excellent"
Cons: "One checked bag was delayed in arrival"
Cons: "For a flight five hours or more I was disappointed that there was no complimentary food. It otherwise it was fine"
Pros: "blanket made it comfortable"
Cons: "No entertainment options"
Pros: "I really enjoyed the movies on this flight and they had us change to better seats before we took off"
Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above"
Cons: "Surprisingly, AA provided the worst experience of the overall itinerary, compared to Aer Lingus and Iberia. The AA plane was outdated, cramped legroom - despite having purchased an "upgraded seat" and departed 1hr late"
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."
Pros: "No entertainment nothing"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "People still using mobiles as we were taking off. Crew seemed not too bothered."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Customer service was not great. They canceled my flight without any great reason. While I learned about another situation regarding my flight, I was not treated well on the phone by costumer service. I don't think I want to fly with American Airlines again."
Pros: "Nothing absolute nightmare .. no water .. are you serious"
Pros: "Quick flight, great service"
Cons: "Was not accommodated for a missed flight"
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: "food"
Cons: "My flight was overbooked. I almost didn't make it home."
Pros: "The passengers"
Cons: "A/c was broken"
Pros: "Things went ok"
Cons: "The plane was old"
Pros: "Friendly staff Smooth ride On time"
Pros: "Prompt boarding & early arrival. Staff was also friendly"

Cons: "Food"
Cons: "2 hr layover-got off plane and walked to new terminal-went through carry on bag and person security scans and checks. At the gate 30 mins before flight, boarding started. Directed to go to 1of3 stand up desks located in the open away from the gate and boarding lines. Desks were attended by one United employee each. All 3 of us;wife, husband, child passports, boarding passes were checked, and then we were told to get in line to board the plane. About one minute after getting in line, wife name was called over the boarding desk loud speaker to see the boarding desk attendant. At the boarding desk, the boarding desk attendant instructed wife to go back to one of the open area desks to have documents checked again. The attendant then instructed wife that her and her bag would need to go through a secondary search before wife would be alloyed to board the plane. Wife was then accompanied by open area desk attendant and walked down terminal 8 gates to private type room where personnel quickly checked contents of single carry on bag focusing on phone and computer. Wife then directed to go ahead and go back to gate to board plane. Wife quickly walked to gate and met husband and child to present passports and boarding passes. At this time the wife and child began being verbally rushed by a male united employee to hurry up down the pedway, and told the plane needed to leave so hurry up. Needless so say wife, husband and child were the few last guests to be seated. Well, when trying to get seated, all the overhead space had been taken in the area around the assigned seats. When husband briefly described the secondary search situation and thus the current predicament with no space in the overhead for carry on, the attendant asked husband to follow attendant to front of plane with your bag in order to stow there. After speaking with some other attendants, space was made available in an overhead compartment near wife, husband and child seat. ***Please be aware when flying united.... While waiting in the boarding line after multiple security checks where you and your carryon have been scanned and more than one document check has been done, you may to be asked to take a walk to go through yet another bag check, and then be rushed to board a plane that needs to leave, and then find no room for your carry on, and then be asked to put your carry on in a remote location and deal with getting to it and back to your seat for the next 11 hrs if you want to access the contents of your carry on."
Cons: "I didn't go on my trip. My course in SF was cancelled and United would n't refund my money or change the dates for my trips because of there basic economy package. They have 3 different economy packages and the economy basic doesn't get refunds and you can't change the flights if needed. It feels like they are banking on increasing there ROI with this basic economy ticket which is 40 -60 dollars cheaper than the next economy package. Intuitively they know people will pick that, but if something comes up the customer is screwed."
Pros: "Very pleasant attentive crew and ground staff. An aborted takeoff on tarmac meant a return to the departure gate and the plane taken to maintenance. The ground staff were superb in dealing with a full plane load of passengers many of whom had onward connections. This meant we had to stay overnight and fly first thing the next morning. Full marks to United for dealing with a potentially dangerous situation and then assisting everyone back in the terminal."
Pros: "Good trip and on time"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "My trip started off with airplane problems from the beginning. From my flight being delayed multiple times by air china to the overly packed united to the confusion of the non updated confirmation numbers or the e-ticket number. Even on the day I left upon arriving to the airport my confirmation number they had just given me after all the prior problems still didn't work. Air china had mediocre food with okay entertainment except my headset jack on the TV was broke and I couldn't watch anything. On the last air china flight from Bejing to Bangkok. I couldn't even charge my phone, watch any entertainment and basically was just stuck with no WiFi. Justfly wouldn't compensate for the changes on their end and said I myself would have to ask the airlines for compensation which the.the airlines directed me no where for compensation or even to upgrade my seat. Now I'm finally in Thailand but I'm scared of my return."
Cons: "Everything was really not great. Air china had mediocre food that some of it wasn't bad but other was so so."
Pros: "Great check in, so different than 10vyrs ago. United Apps also great"
Cons: "In flight wifi didn't work."
Pros: "The pilots were informative with their announcements and we were informed of turbulence before it started. We also got in ahead of schedule. I also appreciated being able to ask for a glass of water between services as I had fallen asleep."
Cons: "The negative experiences started before we got on the plane. Boarding began slightly behind schedule and was very disorganized. People were all standing in the boarding area and out into the walkway for the concourse. I feel it would be better to have boarding groups come up individually or two at a time. (While group one boards, group two convenes. Once group one has boarded, invite group three to take their place.) Once group three had boarded, an announcement was made that there was no overhead bin space availble for the entirety of group 4. It seems a bit ridiculous that nearly half the plane wouldn’t have overhead space. It took awhile to board group 4 as everyone had luggage to check and once we finally got down the jetway, we had to wait another few minutes before being able to get to our seats as the flight attendant for first class insisted on taking drink orders while she stood in the aisle. I understand this is a perk of first class but I feel it could be better executed. These seats are boarded in group one so to have drink orders incomplete by the time group four is trying to board is irritating at best and incompetent at worst. Once finally at our seats, it became apparent that the announcement about lack of overhead bin space had been made a bit early. The bins were on the full side but they definitely had space available. Also, much of the space had been taken up by jackets and bags that would have fit under the seats; which I felt could have prevented nearly all of the checked bags. The flight was uneventful with minor annoyances like having to pay for entertainment and any sort of food. Even southwest provides entertainment free of charge and I consider them to be more of a budget airline. If I fly Lufthansa again, I will not take a domestic flight through United and will instead book via southwest to and from the international airport Lufthansa flies out of."
Cons: "."
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..."
Cons: "we received email for the take off schedule changed to one hour early. End up when we arrived LAX and it got delayed 1 hr for take off due to air traffic. So when we arrived at SF, originally we only have 50 mins to catch on the next route to Osaka. There was no gate # provided on our boarding pass and we have to look for the international terminal for boarding. Due to first delay in SF, the time was so tight and the international terminal was so far away, we had to run like HELL and we almost suffered from heart attack. We barely made it and there was no one to help ever. we had to figure out on our own. This was very bad experience and was not acceptable with such poor arrangement."
Pros: "mets basic expectations"
Cons: "Flight attendants are kind of rigid. I look at this as being in hospitality business rather than just being there for safety. I compare them to hotel staff who are pleasant to greet and just try to make the trip/stay pleasant. Don't see it in United. I think it has regressed to almost like "robots"."
Pros: "Crew was very nice, we got drink/service options often for a large flight."
Cons: "— A couple who had two middle seats apart disrupted our whole boarding by trying to persuade everyone around us to give up an aisle or window seat so they could sit together. I felt pressured to give in which made me mad. I wondered if they paid for Basic Economy and then still got their way on seats. — WiFi is just crazy expensive at $32. Even as a business traveler I felt guilty buying it. I wish I had seen pricing before the flight and/or understood if I could’ve gotten a discount for purchasing in advance. — Didn’t hav the snack I wanted...it’s a long 6 hour flight — I wish there were more food options."
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "The agent in San Francisco was awesome and even went out of her way to bump me to a better seat. Leaving Portland was easy, crew were super organized!"
Cons: "No entertainment systems were working at all. Leaving San Francisco to kahului we had so many unruly young adults that were just out if control. They kept switching seats, spilling alcohol all over me and my stuff and the flight crew could not care less. We even had an older Asian flight attendant on flight 1749 that was just overwhelmed for the job. She would hand the person on the isle a handful of pretzels and say 'here, pass these out'. The other flight crew members made it worse by treating her poorly. You could tell they didn't like her and were agitated by her. Instead if being polite and educating, they were exasperated and impatient. Overall was super disappointed. I have flown United so many times back home to Maui and was always so please and excited to brag about how great United was. Not this time. Thanks for reading."
Pros: "The service and convenience was excellent. Straight forward and smooth transition throughout boarding and catching connecting flight"
Cons: "The piece of mind given to me by the staff with baggage and connecting to the other flight"
Pros: "The gate staff really worked to re-route the whole passenger group after a missing part grounded the plane for the whole day. They kept their cool and were great."
Cons: "How could it be that United could not even find a single airplane part in Atlanta for a whole day, making us miss our flight to Honolulu and stranding us in San Francisco overnight. Then finally on arrival at SF one member of United’s Customer Service was rude, causing me to totally lose my temper, which I never do. I always try to avoid United, made an exception, and paid for it."
Pros: "overall very pleasant and relaxing food good able to sleep due to luckily extra space! very pleased"
Pros: "Flight attendants boarding"
Cons: "They did not load enough fuel so we had to wait. Then we taxied for ten minutes or more. Took off t0 minuted late. Landed 35 minutes late but waited 25 minutes for gate then 20 minutes for bags"
Pros: "We had an aisle each! The staff were friendly too."
Cons: "A slight delay"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed which caused us to miss our international connection. Flight attendants did not care, did not attempt to get us out faster, or put on a different flight. Asked for an announcement to be made on board or to be moved to seats closer to the front so we could get off the plane quicker, did not happen. Offboarded and sprinted across the airport for our international connection and was notified by gate attendents that the gate closed five minutes ago and that they could not let us on the plane. Meanwhile, the plane sat there for an additional 30 minutes while it fueled and waited for release from air traffic control. There were six travelers total stuck there in San Fran at that gate, all of us begging to be let on the plane to Beijing, the last one for over 24 hours. Zero compassion from staff at the the airline gate. They did not care about us and did not care about leaving their travelers stranded. Our total travel was Denver to Bangkok, 26 hours of travel including layovers in San Fran and Beijing. In San Fran (after missing the gate connection), United rerouted us through Haiwaii and the customer service agent that did this reroute did not finish the reroute to our final destination. We got to Haiwaii and were stranded again, at the United service desk for four hours having to once again provide documentation of our initial travel plans to Bangkok, having them build a new itinerary to our final destination. Overall, 20 additional travel hours have been added to our itinerary, almost double our initial travel time. We have had to call and cancel pre-arranged bookings in Thailand as we are now missing two full days off our trip. I am absolutely disappointed and heart broken as I write this still stuck in the Beijing airport waiting another six hours to connect to Bangkok. My fiancé and I were traveling to Thailand to get married and have received no compassion from anyone at this airline to try and get us there. I fly United for work quite frequently and have never experienced such horrendous service and lack of basic human compassion. I am flat out disgusted by United and will not be using them again, for personal travel or work related trips, because of this horrendous experience."
Pros: "Crew did a great job. Air China had much better food service."
Cons: "Seats two small, not enough room to stretch your legs. Bathroom to small. Designed for people less than 150lbs, and 5'-6" in height Not comfortable for people over 6' tall."
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"
Pros: "No complaints here! The Air New Zealand staff were amazing. They did their jobs really well! They made everyone comfortable during the trip."
Pros: "A 3-hour stop over for the connection was not enough!!! The flight to San Francisco was delayed another 90 mins, causing me to miss my 15-hour flight to Singapore, although we arrived 10 minutes before the United Flight! Ten other passengers missed the flight! A travesty! Worse, with "no hotels available", I was rerouted to Chicago for a flight via Tokyo at 1300 the following day! In short, a 30-hour trip became 48 hours of hell and of course an 18-hour delaed arrival in Singapore. But there was more: my luggage was "lost" and thus arrived two days late!!!!! The only saving grace: friendly and helpful UA staff in San Francisco and especially in Chicago. Wow! I deserve some compensaton, wouldn't you all agree?"
Cons: "Please see above!"
Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "Everything was trerrible on this flight! We were delayed from our first connecting flight out to SF to LA and we're put on a different flight connecting to Houston to get us home sooner. We were told by the gentleman at the check in that our correct boarding passes with our seats sitting all together would be given to us at the boarding desk. That was the biggest mistake ever to take this flight because we were then delayed 3 more hrs! Not only that but when I approached the next gentleman at the boarding desk in Houston he was super rude! He was yelling at me when I told them that "they in Dallas,the worker at the check in" told me to get my boarding passes in Houston. He kept yelling saying "there was nothing he could do that he could do that he didn't know who THEY were but that I was talking to him now and that's why he is saying" I tried explaining to him that I just wanted to make sure I got in the right flight home because this is what I was told to do by the employee in Dallas. Not only that but our connecting flight to Houston was horrible! The flight attendant (the male) was very very rude!!! He also was yelling at my niece and nephew when we were trying to put the carry on bags in the compartment. And telling us we could have anything underneath the seat when clearly we could have our personal item underneath. Overall we had the worst experience with United and will never again fly with them! I understand delays may happen but there's no need for the employees to be so rude. so much for their customers service!"
Pros: "I liked that the captain communicated with the passengers about delays and the reasons for the delays over the intercom."
Cons: "I feel that I was treated by the employees at the boarding desk and by the customer service attendants as if I were garbage!!!! I was attempting to purchase an upgrade in my seating to avoid very uncomfortable swelling on my right ankle and other personal reasons. As I inquired with the man at the boarding gate about purchasing the upgrade I was told that there were none available. So I pulled out my tablet with the united airlines app and showed him the image of the empty business class seat that I would like to purchase on the seating map available in the app. He told me that he had no option on his computer screen to sell me the seat. I asked him where could I go or who could I ask to get the seat. This back and forth continued for some time where he kept saying he could not sell me the seat but I would then say, “I understand that, but do you know who can or where I can go to find someone who knows where I can buy an upgrade?” The attendant got VERY VERY upset that I was even ASKING. As if I were asking for some OUTRAGEOUS request!! I asked to speak with the manager several times. He continued by ignoring me and just saying NO! Finally he pointed to some lady beside him. I don't know if she was the manager or not, but she was on the phone and barely gave ten seconds of a glance to the situation. He asked me"Are you gonna go or not?" I could tell that he cared absolutely nothing about me or my request and was extremely dismissive in asking me this. Finally, he dismissively told me to ask the flight attendant. I could tell that this young man would be of no further help AT ALL, so I gave my ticket, went on board and thought to just try and ask a flight attendant. Right before I went to give my ticket to the man who was taking tickets, I heard the boarding gate man walk away mumbling how ANNOYING I was in Chinese. I know this because I SPEAK Chinese. This is HIGHLY UNPROFESSIONAL!! I continued to go on board hoping the flight attendants might actually have some information. When I asked, who I thought was the flight attendant, about purchasing a seat, it turns out that she was the customer service agent on the flight, she gave no effort to even try to hear what I was communicating to her. I know about communication and as a public speaking instructor, I know how to listen and to speak. She continued to raise her voice and talk over me, although I remained very calm and tried talking to her logically. I tried to communicate to her that I was attempting to purchase one of the empty business class seats that I had seen were empty. I checked the seating of the flight from the united airlines app before I had even boarded the plane. The lady continued to be very rude and uncaring. She talked over me, did not listen, her responses did not make sense, she very loudly kept asking me " CAN YOU UNDERSTAND THAT??" as if I was a child or as if I was confrontational when I absolutely was not. I noticed I had been trying to communicate for a while.wordlimit"
Pros: "Luggage bag broken by baggage handlers"
Cons: "Luggage bag broken by baggage handlers"
Pros: "The flight was delayed but on the ground staff were very helpful in providing announcements. The on board attendants were friendly and competent."
Cons: "This was an aged 737, with narrow, cramped seats and thin, hard plastic armrests. The first class seats were smaller than the Premium Economy ones I flew recently on Norwegian Air. The Economy seats were pure torture -- angled oddly in a way that forced your back to curve, with zero legroom even in the Economy Plus section. I tried putting my purse behind me in an effort to alleviate back pain. It was a miserable trip. In contrast my short flight to Santa Barbara was on a newer plane with wide, comfortable seats. There is no way they should use such an old aircraft on a 4 hour trip."
Pros: "More important than the trip home last Wednesday was the reason for the trip. We attended my granddaughter's wedding. Everything else was secondary. Even if the trip had been in a one wheeled barrow, it would have been good. To get to what you want which is the mechanics of the trip. The two people who attended to the aisle chair, most teams were competent. Some hadn't done many passengers so they were fumbling with the straps. I've learned that I almost alway have to ask for one at the gate where they check or issue, (what's it called, loading permits, some kind of pass, not landing pass. loading pass. I can't remember and my wife has gone to bed.) Well, they have to come up with an aisle chair because I've only got 1 1/2 legs. I always make it to the seat on the plane, but the competency of the various crews is uneen. Sorry my answer is so nonspecific but I don't remember one airline from another. Great people all, get the job done."
Cons: "Not much I don't like. They get us there That is the main thing. Sometimes when the plane stops after it has pulled away from the Jet Way, the pilot gives an explanation that I find unfulfilling, not enough details. I suppose if they explained more, other fliers would find the explanation too verbose. I can live with it. Again this is about all flights and airlines. Nothing stands out, such as, " this awful thing happened when we left San Francisco.""
Pros: "Food was excellent, flight attendants were awsome"
Pros: "Really pleasant flight. New plane I think - no window shades, it's tinted windows that change colors! They came by many times to offer water, pick up trash. We even got ice cream for dessert! Also, I have a special meal which they brought correctly (have had airlines mess it up which is crummy on a long plane ride). Also, great in flight entertainment on the screens (no need to use personal devices), lots of recent movies like Guardians of the Galaxy and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find them. Was also surprised to find guided meditations from Headspace which helped me get to sleep! Overall, loved it and would definitely fly again."
Cons: "My bag did not show up at my destination, but I think it will soon. I like that their automated system is sending updates every 6 hours and I can call anytime as well. Fingers crossed it turns up :)"
Pros: "Seats have some good cush to them"
Cons: "I specifically bought carry on luggage that meets the standards so that I would not have to go baggage claim as it would weigh heavily on my schedule. As I stood in line and noticed all of the huge "carry on" bags more than 2 I was astounded when the flight attendant said my carry on would have to be loaded with the other luggage. When I offered my rebuke she scolded me and said the luggage would be there before me....how the hell is that supposed to happen? To make matter worse the flight "attendants" stopped serving half way and when they started again I got trapped by the bathroom and did not get back to my seat in time to enjoy a beverage....not that I was offered one."
Pros: "Tv"
Cons: "Cramped seats, some rows had 1 person and some had 3. Didnt offer them to people who were cramped.. 4 and a half hour flight and small bag of snacks"
Pros: "Nonstop BNA-SFO"
Cons: "United Economy Plus bulkhead was awful. I was seated in seat 7D - there was no bulkhead for me or middle seat - just a curtain. The screens and tiny pockets were only accessible over another passenger. The seat stuck out into the aisle so I was bumped by 200 other passengers at least once - not to mention the flight crew. Finally I had my emotional support dog with me and the crew told me I should. It be in that seat - the seat was assigned by the United Accessibikity Desk as a good one for a service animal - and I had zero choice in the matter. Baggage claim at SFO took over 45 minutes to start -I was home in San Francisco in only 20 minutes after getting my bag."
Pros: "Flash for mac did not install"
Cons: "I felt like I was on my way to my death"
Pros: "Good crew."
Cons: "Late"
Pros: "Boarding process was quick"
Cons: "Should serve food on flights over 4 hrs"
Pros: "Really friendly staff, communicative, helpful. Gave good directions. Plenty of leg room on flight."
Cons: "Beyond the control of United, but LAX is a nightmare of an airport. Traffic control caused delays, airport staff more of a hindrance than helpful. Border control mumbling and barking orders at people like they're cattle. Not the best way to welcome tourists, but at least United Airlines crew made up for it with their smiles."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats, got delayed on the return trip."
Pros: "Nice new seats"
Cons: "N/a"
Cons: "No communication. Staff at desks were not friendly or helpful. There was no delay yet we still managed to almost miss out connecting flight"
Cons: "The plane was delayed from 1.5 hours to 2 to 2.5 hours. It was startling to get these updates vs saying it is 2.5 hours from the start."
Pros: "Nothing"
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: "Priority boarding was cool, no problems with the flight."
Cons: "The seats were too small as usual."
Pros: "crew was mostly friendly"

Cons: "Over two hours late leaving"
Cons: "Heavily delayed, kept getting later"
Pros: "I really liked the United Staff in Houston."

Pros: "We arrived about 20 minutes early. Crew was nice."
Cons: "No outlets or hookups available to charge your phone or tablet. It was a 5-hr flight."
Pros: "Seat is too tight and small . Dart has no decline lean back . It’s very uncomfortable ."
Cons: "Fix the issue above."
Pros: "The Crew"
Cons: "It was a passenger on the plane acting real suspicious. I didn’t like that. Also the seats was uncomfortable."
Pros: "I don't have more time to explain. Frontier has been a nightmare."
Pros: "On time flight."
Cons: "Comfort non existent. Crew seemed bothered by passangers"
Pros: "I loved the service provided by the flight attendants. They were incredibly polite and made sure to always come by and collect trash."
Cons: "You had to pay for everything. They didn't have anything complimentary with the exception of water. I totally get this with how inexpensive the ticket was, but there weren't ANY amenities and for a 5 and half hour flight, I think that's kind of unacceptable."
Pros: "Pilot was amazing, well experienced! I have fear of flying but was not worried about outcome of the flught even though it was raining outside."
Cons: "Pretty pricey flight and no snacks included in price."
Pros: "Cheap, you travel from point A to point B"
Cons: "They don't even serve water!"
Cons: "Fooled me with extra charges to select seat and carry on. Uncomfortable seats, no charger."
Pros: "Arrived at destination early"
Cons: "Paying for carry ons Not comfortable"
Cons: "frontier tore through my baggage, breaking some of my belongings and stealing some others. not worth the 'cheap" ticket price."
Pros: "That I got there in one piece"
Cons: "$70 round trip carry on charge! Ridiculous! And the kiosks were all broken at SFO. The check in counter was closed until a certain time. The stewardess accidentally charged the wrong persons snack to the wrong seat & it took her a long time to figure out the I-pad set up. Said she didn't have much training in it herself. Worst airline ever"
Pros: "Left on time , and arrived earlier than scheduled"
Cons: "When arrived at sfo we waited almost an hour to get a gate"
Pros: "Everything was perfect and affordable."
Cons: "After a few hours my back began to hurt maybe due to not being able to lean back. An alternate option would be to advertise if pillows were available. If I hate two of those airline pillows I would have been much more comfortable."
Pros: "Very uncomfortable, otherwise acceptable"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "My flight was delayed twice, in Denver, for over 12 hours, charged 75.00 in addition to the 35.00 for my bad being two pounds over fifty, no representatives for almost an hour at the reservation and check-in desk, and children- yes children of employees- playing on top of the customer service desk. I am still appalled."
Cons: "Flight cancelled with no warning, information, or assistance at the gate."
Cons: "The flight was first cancelled, then I had to wait two days for the next available flight out. Also was charged for my carry on bag. This airline does not offer any complimentary drinks. I will not book this company again, you think your saving a little and end up spending More at the end."
Cons: "Flight cancelled."
Cons: "Delayed flight, we have to pay for food"
Pros: "On time flights and friendly crew."
Cons: "No entertainment, and all food & drink had to be purchased."
Pros: "Nice crew. Plane clean."
Cons: "On this long flight from Atlanta to San Francisco, a reclining seat would have been nice."
Cons: "They lost my language, no matter how many times I called to get a status on my language, it was very ineffective in getting back to me. Very frustrating."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The worst flight experience. I will def try to avoid this airline."
Pros: "I don't think I've ever had a better experience checking in my luggage, boarding, or flying. Everything was streamlined and efficient--down to paying for bags and picking seats as a bundle you deal with ahead of time. The outgoing flight was so above average I thought at first it was a fluke. But just landed and left the airport, and the return flight was even more efficient than the outgoing flight. Cheers Frontier! You guys rock!!"
Cons: "Obvs as a budget airline, they don't do food or entertainment. Which I'd def miss on an international flight, but isn't a big deal for domestic west to east coast type thing."
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: "We arrived on time and safely."
Cons: "No Wifi, or any in flight Entertainment"
Pros: "I love the new Airbus seats that do not recline! It was always so annoying when inconsiderate fellow passengers would recline their seatback fully for the entire journey, making it impossible for one to enjoy a snack or a cup of coffee. Now that problem has been solved. Thank you!"
Pros: "I got the upgraded seat, (+$45). It was very roomy. There's no entertainment but I brought my own. Food and drinks for sale were good and not as expensive as the shops in the airport. No sandwiches, just snacks and booze. Overall was pleasantly surprised."
Cons: "It would have been nice to be able to buy a small sandwich.. It was a cross country flight and I was pretty hungry when I got off the plane."
Cons: "- we can't pick our seats when we are booking, and have to pay extra for seat other than middle seat. - bathroom was disgusting"
Pros: "pretty much nothing"
Cons: "seats were uncomfortable staff wasnt very friendly carryon luggage was expensive and I had to keep the one bag that i took under the seat in front of me and not up in the cabin"
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: "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."
Pros: "efficient"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "The seats"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "The seats are beyond uncomfortable No free even peanuts didn't get offered even water I get no frills but the comfort level could be elevated I felt like I was flying in a third world country"
Pros: "Got to destination safe and sound"
Cons: "website is very very poor. Will never use this airline for travel again. Too many add ons with kayak fees kept increasing. this is the first time using Frontier and Kayak and will NEVER use again. We have the best service with Southwest and will keep going with them. Customer service with this airline is farmed out to another country. Reps very hard to understand!!!! No curb side ck in at Atlanta. For an older person this is not easy. Too small of an airline for us. Best to all . I have lived in the mid west and understand frontier is larger in that area, but not an option for us on west coast at this time. Travel have chged over the years and is not as easy or enjoyable as it once was, this I understand. When I can purchase a ticket with easier travel and an even easier web site then with this airlines, who would you choose to see 4 generations ?????????????? The price difference in the two airlines is only 3 dollars, but your company leaves all of our family with a BAD taste in our moulth. Enough said. Thank all for your time. The folks at Southwest are happy and have fun and make the travelers feel the same way!! Please take note! We will soon find out if you have curb side ck in at SFO, my guess is not."
Pros: "Standing 2 minutes before gate close time and didn't let us board. Along with 5 other passengers. Said their clocks run different than the country."
Cons: "That they lie made a fool of us. Treated us like we didn't exist. 5 of them kept punching the keyboard and said "I'm sorry", "I'm sorry" I'd like a refund"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Hit with extra fees when I checked in including $40 to carry on a bag and a $19 fee for seat. Had I wanted a soda, it would have costed $1.99 and there were no complementary snacks. Also, seats do nit recline, which made the 5 hr flight very incomfortable."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seat and small leg room. Compare to other airlines, Frontier is on my bottom list. I will never use Frontier again, it will be my first and last."
Pros: "Best price for last minute booking"
Cons: "Extensive bag charges!!"
Pros: "Flight departed late but arrived early onto airport, which was great."
Cons: "When we arrived to the airport we were waiting for over 1 hour on the runway. Once we got to the gate, we then waited for our bags at the baggage claim for over 1 hour. We landed in SFO at 10:15, but didn't get our bags until 12:30"
Pros: "flight was on time"
Cons: "when we reached san fransico we had to sit on the plane for an extra hour and forty-five minutes!!! was not happy about that. then it took another hour to actually get our checked on bag!"
Cons: "We were stuck on the runway for over an hour after we landed and getting our luggage was a DISASTER. They changed the location of our baggage claim carousel with minimal notice, only to change it back to the original carousel with NO NOTICE. It took over an hour again for our luggage to come out and it trickled in so slowly, that I ended up getting my bag a full two and a half hours after we landed. Awful experience."
Pros: "It felt clean."
Cons: "Surprise charges for seat assignments and outrageous charges for carry on luggage. Uncomfortable sears with no leg room. Too many announcements, ads spoken through intercom."
Pros: "Crew was awesome"
Cons: "Paying for seat selection????!!!!! Seriously? $26 for a seat that I've already paid for? A seat the doesn't recline? A tray that's ridiculously small? I will never fly this airline again unless I absolutely have to."
Cons: "I will never fly this airline again! The tix appear significantly cheaper on kayak, so we drove 2 hours out of our way to ATL in the early morning hours thinking it was saving $$$. Only to find at check in that it cost more to bring a small carry on than to pay for it to be checked! It was a west coast flight and it didn't even include a beverage in flight!!! No snack either. Thumbs down. It was certainly NOT worth the inconvenience of driving out of the way, and we didn't save any $ after all. The staff was not that friendly, at it took 30 mins for the frontier baggage carousel to even start up to get the heck out of there. Never again. If it seems too good a deal, it is!"
