Pros: "Staff was pleasant"

Pros: "Let me book my luggage free ."
Cons: "Texas people on there break,cannot talk to customers that are lost"

Pros: "Re-routed to Phx; inflight Phx was closed. Diverted to Tucson. Only jets on the ramp were American. Seems if you close an airport there would be a lot more than 4 jets and different airlines. Landed at 11pm; still on the aircraft at 130am"
Cons: "Let's see pretty much the whole experience"

Pros: "Ease of access. Hospitality."

Pros: "The in flight entertainment app was nice."
Cons: "I liked the in flight entertainment app however my powers source for my device wasn't working well and I couldn't finish the movie that I had purchased."

Cons: ". The plane was clearly a very old model - very cramped."

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."

Pros: "New plane Lots of movies Recharge outlet for devices Couldn't be better !!"
Cons: "Very pleasant"

Cons: "The ticket agents for my flight into LAX were awful. They were rude to other passengers and extremely curt and disrespectful. The one agent, Tamika, spoke in a tone as if she were speaking with a child. The passenger in front of me had the same unpleasant experience and subsequently filed a complaint. It just confirms my theory, that some people are just not meant for customer service positions."

Cons: "The DELAY"

Pros: "Leg room was ok.."
Cons: "American Airlines don't have entertainment that one can access when on board unlike united airlines. They have an icon for entertainment that passengers can watches movies when on board. AA, don't offer snacks to its passengers unlike United airlines..! Seat 8A has white stuff falling from the top.., seemed like particles of ice-they were cold."

Cons: "Bad weather cancelled my flight. I probably won't get my money back. I was stuck at airport and had to pay hundreds of dollars to get home by deltA. Grace Elizabeth"

Pros: "I'm alive"
Cons: "Nothing went correct on that flight. They left an airport with low fuel which resulted with us being stuck somewhere over 90 min"

Pros: "Most of the staff were helpful"
Cons: "Some were not"

Pros: "We didn't crash."

Cons: "American Airlines tends to ova book that makes things hard. Sat by n watched agents hv to handle to many problems waiting 4 my plane. Flight was delayed to ny from Chicago by 1hour n half. Then no plugs in Chicago airport gates to charge cell phone. They make too much money to be that far behind times."

Pros: "The crew was super nice and professional. The flight was really smooth."
Cons: "I can't say anything bad. It was a great experience."

Pros: "The A321 from DFW to SAN was very nice and comfortable."
Cons: "The Super 80 from ATL to DFW was the hottest aircraft I've ever been on. There was essentially zero airflow making the cabin 95 degrees and 100% humidity. It would have been cooler to stand outside. It was like this when I walked on the jet until well after we leveled off at altitude and then from when we landed (throttles at idle) until we deplaned. We had to wait for a gate for 20 minutes on the Tarmac and then when we got to a gate we had to wait for a gate agent to move the jet bridge for 10 minutes. It was miserable. If you all know you have a low flow aircraft then hurry to hook up the air conditioning cart in both ATL and DFW, fix the APU to produce more air, or don't shut the engines down when there is no gate agent at the aircraft. My clothes were soaked in sweat making this the worst trip I've ever taken. Come on American. You can do better."

Cons: "Great"

Pros: "The crew was so friendly, got me a seat belt extension and let me board early"
Cons: "Everything was good!"

Cons: "The flight was delayed 2 hours and there were no TV on a cross country flight."

Pros: "Roomy & comfortable seating for such a small aircraft"
Cons: "Late boarding, over an hour"

Cons: "Gate changed and baoarding time changed countless times."

Cons: "Significant delay in departure, tight seats, and inattentive flight attendants."

Pros: "American Airlines was the best flight experience I've ever had. I've not down twice and the first time we wrecked, so not wrecking was nice."

Pros: "The fact that I was finally going home and could take a shower and change my clothes"

Pros: "I had such a hard time with another airline I just wanted to go home. The tickets were reasonably priced and the staff friendly/ helpful."
Cons: "No cranapple juice?"

Pros: "Love American."

Pros: "Crew was very nice"
Cons: "They could’ve offered free snacks instead of only offering items for purchase."

Pros: "I really liked the entertainment on board. Made the flight go by so fast."
Cons: "Better snacks"

Cons: "The flight was delayed for 4 hours making us miss our connecting flight, the revised flight was delayed resuslting in missing our next connection and this resulted it lost baggage. So an 11 hour flight becames 24 hours which is unacceptable when travling with 2 kids. Nevering flying United again."

Cons: "Very small screens, poor service when flight was delayed from boarding hostess"

Pros: "It got us to London. My bags were quickly available."
Cons: "The seats were SO. UNCOMFORTABLE. I didn't sleep at all and have a headache because of them. Absolutely atrocious. The food was meh. One of the flight attendants was so rude I dreaded every time she headed over. I'll be flying with Delta in the future."

Cons: "We should up 2.5 hours before our flight. Was told by United desk clerk my flight to Chicago was the day before and that the reservation for my wife was for correct day but had been cancelled"

Pros: "The seats were comfortable with adequate cushioning."
Cons: "The drinks served in plastic cups were tiny."

Pros: "The entertainment can stream a large library of movies to your device"

Cons: "Can not really expect much on a short commuter flight."

Cons: "It was professional, no fuss but somehow slightly detached. I had no food only a water. A friendly inside crew."

Cons: "Flight was super delayed, staff wasn’t very helpful when I was getting rebooked"

Cons: "."

Pros: "Arrived early."
Cons: "Cabin crew were a little bit edgy. Not as pleasant as others on similar route."

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: "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: "Terminals were a bit far a part"

Pros: "It's funny that they try to sell you the entertainment .nobody buys it, nobody."

Pros: "Movies"
Cons: "everything else"

Pros: "Nice flight crew Nice gate agents Flights were on-time"
Cons: "Seats are a little tight To select seats during online check-in cost $33 per seat"

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"

Pros: "Arrived early and flight crew was super nice!"

Cons: "Explanation on why it took so long to board was a vage"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight was late , and many other issues"

Pros: "People only comment to complain. In my case, everything went smoothly and ahead of schedule. The pilots took advantage of tail winds and put us at the gate ten minutes ahead of schedule. The crew was professional, personable and did their best to make everyone as comfortable as possible."

Cons: "None"

Pros: "The crew were wearing new uniforms. They look nice!"
Cons: "Seets were very uncomfortable"

Pros: "Flight was canceled"
Cons: "Flight was canceled and I'm finding it difficult to get a refund"

Pros: "Was good, but will be great if the wifi is free for all"
Cons: "Can't complain"

Pros: "Good flight"
Cons: "Rude staff. Very mean to me in the fact that I can't walk and needed assistance. Flight delayed for a ridiculous amount of time. I was not informed until last minute"

Pros: "This was my first time flying United and first time flying on a jet. The plane was small which was a little scary, not the huge Delta airplanes that I am accustomed to. However the ride was smooth and quick. I liked that they turned the lights off which made it super cozy, I slept like a baby and I never sleep when I fly! Both flights were great!"
Cons: "I can't complain at all."

Cons: "The flight was delayed seversl times for crew staffing issues. I missed my connection to LAX and therefore, missed a very important business meeting."

Pros: "The rate was great The captain was courteous The flight attendants was very courteous"
Cons: "The delays was awful I'm disabled wasn't offered no assistant to get from one terminal to the next because your flight delays we waited 3hours to go from Chicago to Boston then get on plane and wasn't offered but a swallow of soda that was poured out of a twelve ounce can split between three customers And I'm diabetic my sugar was low because the unexpected delay So that made a perfectly good trip awful"

Cons: "The fact that it was canceled and no help was given to rearrange itinerary."

Cons: "The flight was cancelled at the boarding time: the plane was ready without a flight crew causing the cancelation. Finding a replacement flight was very difficult and the Costomer service was not helpful. After showing I was active duty military, a seat "appeared" on the next flight out and I was put on standby for an earlier flight For that day. The earliest flight before then, wasn't until Tuesday the 29th. This was not acceptable."

Cons: "I loss an entire vacation day due to delays in flight departure time. For a 1st united airline flyer not nice."

Pros: "They got us into Chicago which nice. Also United was giving away free bottles of water for the holidays."

Cons: "After a 2 hour immigration deal that wasn't uniteds fault we had 15 minutes to get to our gate before our flight started boarding...after rushing to the gate we found out our flight was delayed for 30 minutes, just enough time to grab an Auntie Annie's pretzel and drink. After we returned we discovered that the flight was delayed another 45 minutes...having a 4 hour flight ahead of us we decided to get more substance than a pretzel. After asking the desk person when our flight would be here, she told us they were awaiting a plane and it could be less time than 45 minutes til boarding. There was a restaurant no more than 30 yards from our gate with a television that updated all the flights so we could see. The flight was scheduled to leave the gate at 6:56pm...we got to the gate at 6:45 and they would not allow us to board because they closed the gates and said we were there at 6:46 and they have to close the doors 10 minutes before...we showed the lady our phones which were correct with the time. Basically they screwed us...they can delay flights for over two hours at your inconvenience but the second you're late they show you no mercy. We had to get a hotel for the night (which they didn't pay for) and board an American flight the next day. The desk lady was terrible, had the worst attitude and threatened to call the cops when my husband cursed and said 'this is bullshit' apparently freedom of speech doesn't fly with United...pick a different airline"

Pros: "The flight attendant ran out of regular sprite, ginger ale, and seltzer water by the time he reached the last row. Finally settled for water."

Cons: "My original flight was delayed so I had to switch my flight to Denver, CO and fly through Delta."

Pros: "I liked that the airline gave me a complimentary flight change because I didn't realize I was crossing into another time zone to get to the air port so by the time I got through the traffic and to the airport, my flight was pretty much leaving. They were very quick to get everything rearranged for my new flight. I was very tearful. The staff was very helpful."
Cons: "I didn't like that it took me almost an hour to get through security, however that is probably why they say to be there two hours early. I also didn't like how hard it was to find where I was supposed to be dropped off for departures. It took me about 30 mins driving in circles trying to find the place to be dropped off for departures. I first went to the international side because my final destination was an international destination but then I realized that my first flight is domestic.... I'm a dork. :/ I wish they would tell you the exact directions how to get to the gate and could give you a live feed on estimated time it will take to get there. I should have called ahead of time to figure it out, but I want expecting it to be so hard."

Pros: "It was a normal flight. Normal take off delays."

Pros: "United was effecient in the rebooking process"

Pros: "The free coffee?"
Cons: "Boarding took forever, there was no space in the over head bins. People just completely brain farted and stood in the aisles, unable to comprehend the lack of space."

Pros: "I was overall impressed. Both flights were early to the destination. All the flight crew were friendly. The planes were very clean."
Cons: "No food was offered, not even to purchase on a 3.5 hour flight. The $25 charge per bag is too high."

Cons: "Flight was delayed ended up switching to a Delta Flight."

Pros: "The crew were professional, helpful and friendly. The numbered boarding lines work really well."
Cons: "Although I was able to bring both of my bags on board because they were small, many people were forced to check theirs at the gate. The airline should tell people this ahead of time, or even have a 1-bag policy, rather than spring this surprise on people at the gate. The seats were too close together. It was impossible for me to find a comfortable sitting position. I'm not especially tall, but I could not extend my legs enough."

Pros: "Nothing was satisfactory"
Cons: "Charging double due to flight discrepancy. This might be my last time flying United. HORRIBLE customer service."

Pros: "VERY loud engine startup. Aside from that, superb!"

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "Friendly staff"

Pros: "It was smooth and easy"
Cons: "Long walk to get to terminal in the rain."

Pros: "I had a small back pack they said need to check in they charged me 60 dollars it’s a worst experience"
Cons: "When I fly from San Jose to Atlanta they didn’t charge for my luggage, while coming from there they charged me 60$ for my small backpack so I don’t want to go in this flight for ever bad service"

Cons: "Good"

Pros: "Crew was thorough"
Cons: "Slow boarding. Delayed by 2 hrs on a flight the week prior and this flight was delayed as well, it said 2 hrs 20 mins but ended up being closer to 3 hours, ridiculous that it was on both ends of my trip. The flight was cheap but started to feel very much not worth the low cost."

Pros: "Seats and legroom seem roomier than other airlines. Helps that seats don't recline."

Pros: "Flight to attendants were very good."
Cons: "By the time I had added my bags, selected my seats I may as well have gone on another airline that didn’t nickel and dime you go food and drink. Will not do it again or my wife, advertise as a low cost airline but it most certainly is not."

Pros: "I liked that the flight was not long"
Cons: "The seats were extremely uncomfortable"

Pros: "Overall it was a lot better then my flight to Atlanta"
Cons: "The seats are extremely hard"

Cons: "Flight was delayed several hours. This led to a loss of work time and money for me. I will not fly Frontier again for a business trip."

Pros: "I liked the leg space."
Cons: "The flight attendants spilled ice water all over a man. They also skipped over my row with the cart and we were all wide awake."

Pros: "Cheap price"
Cons: "4 hour delay and terribly uncomfortable plane."

Cons: "Everything. Maintenance issue. Debording in Austin. Seat confusion. Never again!"

Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "Flying is no longer a luxury over any other form of transportation. It was at one point. The only reason to fly is to get there faster. No appreciation was felt for for helping pay Frontier's bills."

Pros: "The crew were very polite."
Cons: "I hated that the seats didn't recline at all. Luckily it was only a 2 hour flight."

Pros: "flight was only delayed because of weather. captain was good to explain and we didn't lose any time in transit."
Cons: "there is no organization, zoning was called two at a time vs. one at a time to allow for ease of lining up."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "I loved the gate agent. She gave me a row of seats to myself. I also loved the flight attendants. They were very courteous, friendly and professional. The pitch between the seats were decent. They definitely respect the passenger and provide excellent pricing. I traveled without bags or personal item. I understood exactly what I was doing. Going to Vegas for 24 hours for next to nothing."
Cons: "I felt the snacks were overpriced. It was kind of funny seeing the flight attendants use debit or credit cards for each item on their cart."

Cons: "Actually the tickets were cancelled due to my wife"s (KARAMJIT K UBEROI ) sudden sickness and in spite of promise by your customer service to re credit to my Credit Card, later on denied the same .However a flight credit for the amount was provided to use within three months .We were harassed by making repeated faxes and make calls nearly dozen times."

Pros: "The flight home. The seats were fine."
Cons: "The flight there. The seats were super uncomfortable."

Cons: "I didn't even take the flight, cause my name was not enter correctly to frontier airlines and they charged $309.00 to make change."

Cons: "i wasnt able to even fly"

Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats. Horrible customer service"

Pros: "Crew was good."
Cons: "Not apples to apples fare comparison - Kayak & other search sites should have necessary alerts when these fares are shown Requires to purchase a seat while checking in online ! Additional fee for carry on bag ! Flight delayed by 2.45 but no flexibility to change flights from Frontier. I missed my meeting and had no reason to fly that day. Frontier would not change me to the next day."

Pros: "Flight was canceled with no explanation. Shitty service at the atl airport frontier"

Pros: "someone stole an item from my suitcase"

Pros: "INITIALLY, I was thrilled with the low price. That changed radically when I found out that Frontier charges for everything except air. The crew was polite and informative and let us know what was happening with our hour-plus delay."
Cons: "Didn't like the new seats and the tiny tray--very uncomfortable and practically useless. That said, I wasn't going to use the tray anyway (couldn't even put a tablet on it) for food, as Frontier is charging for food and water. At the time, I was not aware that I would be charged separately for baggage, including carry-on bags. If I had been, I would have MAILED my luggage to my final destination, as it would have been cheaper. My family of four turned out to have five bags, which added approximately $500 to the roundtrip cost of the tickets, or MORE than it cost for the tickets. That's right, flying the people (who weigh more than luggage) turned out to be cheaper than flying the bags. Look, if you want to encourage people to check bags, make checking the bag FREE. If you're just looking for a revenue stream, then you should be up front about what the costs will be. (But then people would be less inclined to book your "cheaper" tickets, wouldn't they?) Also, the flight wound up being delayed for over an hour, though my phone and the Frontier website continued to show "on time" status."

Pros: "The flight was fast and straight forward."

Cons: "Paying for a carry on Seats do not recline No complimentary beverages Flight was delayed and we rarely received updates I understand that you charge for everything in order to offer better prices, but by the time the customer pays to bring on luggage, we are paying the same price as an airline that allows baggage for free with inclusive drinks, snacks and seats that recline."

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."

Cons: "Charged for checked bag, carry-ons, and to select seats on the flight. Seats were uncomfortable and did not recline. Crew seemed like they wanted to be there less than we did and was poor at distributing water in the Sahara that was our cabin."

Cons: "Hidden fees! Seat fees, checks. Bag fees. And what the **** is a carry-on bag fee? And after paying $75 to have two small bags TOTAL, y'all lost my luggage? Never again."

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: "I have to admit that the seats were more comfortable than they looked. But I could not recline."
Cons: "The delays, several hours going to Atlanta and one hour coming back. It appears this is typical for Frontier. Also, $40.00 for the carry on. The deal I thought I had was not a deal. By the time I paid $80.00 round trip for two I could have taken a more convenient flight for the same money without paying for my carry on. I went with Frontier because I thought I was getting a deal. I felt nickled and dimed, pay for soft drinks??????? But the worse was the delays, with no explanation at all!"

Pros: "Once we were on the plane, all was well. I liked the seats, I'm short and the seats were short which means my feet touched the floor which means I was more comfortable. Good lower back support. In Trenton shuttle to far away parking lot came right away which was GREAT!"
Cons: "No pilot for hours = delayed flight. Long wait in terminal. Not nearly enough plugs for charging electronic equipment. Online choosing of seats confusing -- why pay more $$ to choose seats? Didn't I buy three seats? Not told that we would be landing on tarmac and not attached to terminal, so had to walk outside in the cold to get to terminal in Trenton. Would have like to have known before I got off the plane."

Pros: "'The cost was reasonable. Scheduling was acceptable."
Cons: "Seats were mediocre. On arrival in Denver, I had to wait over two hours to pick up my luggage because there was apparently no available crew to unload it from the plane. Also there did not seem to be anyone available to explain what was going on. When I returned to Atlanta, I took the same bag on board with me and it cost more to carry it on than it did to check it, but I preferred not to have the same experience trying to retrieve my bag there. I don't think I will fly Frontier again."

Pros: "For the money i spent to fly the only thing i had free was water. Wasn't used to flying with no complimentary snacks and to purchase items were a bit expensive. Baggage took too long 30 minutes. Wasnt accustom to waiting for my luggage at the baggage claim. Other than that the flight was good. Thanks for your service, but i will try not to use Frontier airline's"

Pros: "On time for departing and arrival. No frills but felt comfortable."
Cons: "The baggage fee is not included in ticket prices."

Pros: "The plane seem fairly new and the boarding was fairly smooth. The crew was calm and even patient from my perspective, considering they were handling mad costumers after a 3&1/2 hour delay on christmast day. I saw good will on this flight from the crew. Remember when the pilots use to show you the cockpit? Well this pilot did to a kid as he entered the plane. The kid and his father were very happy, expeessing how cool is was as they continue to board. That, was a nice gesture and resulted in relaxing some people! The flight was fairly quick once we were in the air. Tha been said. This flight did t allow for me to rate entertaiment and food since it was too short for the crew to set that up."
Cons: "Well obviously the massive delayed! I, like many arrived at the airport with enough hours ahead to take this flight so say 6-7am only to sit around until 12:00pm in order to depart. That alone is a fairly black mark. In addition, the gate kept been moving around. Of course there are other planes to arrive and that needs to be understood but the constant changing and moving to distant gates was a bit tough on some of us."

Pros: "The fare was reasonable. The flight was on time. Boarding was quick. The seats were ridiculously uncomfortable and would not recline. So small. Baggage policy is impossible. For passengers who did not check the website before the flight it was a surprise to be hit with a carry on baggage fee. The airline is only good for extremely short trips when you don't have to bring anything but a change of underwear."

Cons: "Flight was delayed three hours with no compensation for time. It would've been nice to receive a voucher for dinner considering time. Also, attempting to sleep on a flight is always difficult but turning on the lights to serve beverages was a bit much. Dim lighting would be a better option."

Pros: "I was not aware of paying for the seats. I bought the tickets on kayak.com, but I can't remember seeing anything about paying for seats and carry on. The staff was great and funny at times. I thing airlines need to put all charges up front that includes kayak.com"

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."

Cons: "After checking in the night before, we arrived at the gate only to be told the flight was overbooked. We watched for over 15 minutes, more than 10 people run to catch the flight with seconds to spare-only to be told we werent going to get the seats I booked a month in advance. We'll NEVER (almost) fly Frontier again. Only saving grace-a nice supervisor (Mandy) got us a refund plus some. Thank you Mandy."

Pros: "Had a great fight all around. Staff was friendly and helpful. Lines moved efficiently."

Pros: "I liked that it was cheap, mainly because I was only there for a day and didn't have to pay for luggage. The staff seemed ok and everything else was normal."
Cons: "I didn't like how they basically charge for every single thing. They charge for checked bags, carry ons, the seat selection, and any kid of food or drink that's not water."

Pros: "NOTHING"
Cons: "I say the exact same "I should have just flown delta" story EVERY TIME I go with a cheap airline. Flight was delayed from 5pm to 6pm, then to 11:30pm, then 1:30am. So I had to buy a stupid expensive last minute ticket on Delta (Frontier doesn't work with other airlines, to rebook flights or even find your luggage) then drive two hours from the airport to see my family for the holidays.. Then take a 2 hour trip back to the airport the next day to pick up my luggage, which Frontier wouldn't deliver to me because I "voluntarily separated" from them. I suppose that's technically true, but I think there's an argument there that Frontier's complete lack of competency forced to me do it."

Pros: "Everything was great prior to baggage claim in Denver"
Cons: "I had to wait for over an hour before the bags from the flight were sent to baggage claim."

Cons: "carr y on 70 $"

Pros: "I knew of the baggage policies so check in was easy and smooth. Other people seemed to have trouble with it so maybe baggage policies should be more advertised. Overall, great and comfortable experience for me."

Cons: "They didn't have paperwork done and we were sitting on the runway for over an hour waiting."
