Pros: "Very friendly crew and the plane arrived in Costa Rica 30 mins early!"
Cons: "I have a JetBlue credit card and I’m very disappointed that membership to the credit card does not offer priority boarding or zone A or zone B boarding. I was in seat 6C and had boarding zone E! Every other airline sponsored credit card I own offers some form of priority zone seating; even Spirit!"

Pros: "They had snacks"
Cons: "Although my wife and I booked our flight together we did not get to sit together. My wife paid for the $54 upgrade but the only benefit was she could bring a checked bag. We both got middle seats not near each other. I believe she should have gotten a better seat with her upgrade but that was not the case. Normally jet blue is great. I have had them get my family seats together even when we didn’t book together. At that time they surprised me at how customer oriented they were and I gave an excellent rating. This time was very disappointing. We paid for the upgrade but got limited benefits. I am surprised at the difference in customer care in just a few months."

Cons: "3 boarding delays. short,albeit"

Pros: "Smooth flight as usual and friendly crew"

Pros: "I had my 3 hours wasted. All or some TV are busted and doesn't work. It's loose connection as front seat move sometimes you see sometimes you don't. I used to book JetBlue only bexause.tbus is the only airline that offers TV service and but it's time has changed and service has degraded as it seems. I would recommend to fix the TV and or at least put bigger screen. I fly from India to Dubai that is same flight time and they offer same service that they offer in their emrites double floor plane except smaller screen but same function. I am disappointed with the entertainment service and going forward I would not be willing to go with JetBlue unless I don't have any choice. Thanks Neo"

Cons: "When I bought my ticket I was not able to pic a seat. I am big guy and seat choice is a big deal. This was an obvious attempt to get you to upgrade to an even more leg room seat for a cost. When I called the customer no service line they told me i have get that done at the airport. I got to the air port early and they said you have to get that done at the gate but you can upgrade if you want.

If the plane was not delayed, we would have missed our connecting flight with no communication."

Cons: "There was wifi onboard and it was advertised that we could connect and use iMessage, whatsApp and Facebook messenger free of charge but I wasn't able to do so on this flight. I didn't ask about it but this would be an excellent amenity to keep in touch with the people on the ground"

Pros: "Hey, domestic U.S. flights aren't all bad! I was pleasantly surprised by the kind service and amenities on this Delta flight. There's a plethora of free movies to watch, and the crew continually checked on us to make sure we were hydrated. I think Delta may become my new prefered carrier for domestic flights."

Made the 6 hour flight go by quickly and not mind the bumpy air in the tropics."

I ended up paying for a 2nd checked bag and leave it at Miami AA baggage services for replacement."

Pros: "The crew was attentive and helpful."
Cons: "Our layover was originally supposed to be an hour and a half in Phoenix. As we were boarding the plane from Austin to Phoenix, we got a notification that our layover had been delayed an additional 5 hours due to construction at SFO.

Cons: "Stale mini pretzels are not appetizing. There are much better inexpensive alternatives. Yuck."

Pros: "Nothing was better than standard"
Cons: "It felt like the staff had instructoions not to smile not even once. The food was beyond terrible. I’m not asking for hot bread like other airlines do, but at least serve it at room temperature instead of super frozen. Same for the butter. The continental breakfast had nothing continental about it"

Cons: "Would have like a choice in food severd"

Pros: "Ease of check in"
Cons: "DIdnt understand why a seat as not assigned. A few people had the same issue and the gate agent suggested we may not get seats. Very stressful given he need to make an international connection. Gate service was not available early enough."

Pros: "Getting home EVENTUALLY"
Cons: "10 minutes after leaving Austin the pilot tellsnus Houston air traffic control is grounding all westbound flights due to a storm in Dallas that's causing too much congestion. So we sa on the Tarmac for 90 minutes. I have a difficult time believing this situation was a surprise. Possibly it was just to free up the gate and not have to go through reboarding. Also leg room is getting reduced to 28 inches. I'm 5"11 and cramped. How is JetBlue better than American? How much will these airlines continue to bend us over. I didn't even take the screaming infant into account.... since it's not AA's fault for letting that baby on board."

Cons: "."

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "westjet delayed my flight once again, so I was stuck in the LAX airport for 5 hours"

Pros: "Smooth ride, easy security"

Pros: "The boarding process was easy and the crew was great."
Cons: "Other passengers were annoying. One guy was listening to a baseball game on his phone at full volume on the plane during boarding. Another kept hitting the back of my seat playing a game on the entertainment system. And a flight attendant let a guy stay on his phone, while we taxied for takeoff, having the douchiest conversation in history."

Pros: "Flight was on time. Attendants were nice."
Cons: "For the 100th time, you seats are too dang small."

Pros: "S"

Pros: "Good price, effective transportation, nothing special"
Cons: "Very full, not super comfortable"

Pros: "It's just like very other airlines."

Pros: "I was flying with 2 children on my own and had an issue booking seats together, the gate agents worked to find a solution when we arrived and we were all seated together. Thank you so much for keeping us all together, as my one child has aspbergers and the other is only 8 and we are not frequent flyers. I highly recommend your airline to everyone I meet. Everything met or exceeded our needs. Thank you so very much."

Pros: "I like the movie selection"
Cons: "The landing was horrible like slamming on the brakes in traffic. Also when I bought the ticket from Alaska Airlibes on kayak I had bought it at a higher price specifically for that. There was an American Airlines ticket that was cheaper but I opted to pay more because I thought I was flying on Alaska not American. I was very disappointed to see that I was actually flying on American once I was pro ting my ticket and after purchase and "no refund" message. I was very upset about that!"

Cons: "No snacks were offered at all."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Terrible customer service, multiple flight cancellations"

Cons: "Apparently my seat change did not go through because I was still stuck in the last row near the bathrooms. I must say, the fecal aroma really complemented the on set nausea that was triggered by the turbulence. Every time I thought I was gona drift off to sleep I was rudely awakened by the constant "thwacking" of the bathroom doors. The family next to me was nice enough but they did have a toddler who was very loud and unhappy and the tantrums followed. I have been a server for 14 years and generally can brush annoyances off like this but this was by far the worst flight I have been on."

Cons: "Food"

Pros: "Got me there"
Cons: "MAKE PEOPLE WEAR MADKS EVEN IF THEY ARE IN FIRST CLASS THE MASK HAS TO COVER THE NOSE!!!"

Cons: "Paid over 300$ and got no screen at all, no movies, no bending headrest. This airline is bad quality and overpriced"

Pros: "Was able to get an Economy Plus seat, which is nice - great legroom for an almost 6' tall person and power plug is very handy. Entertainment & screens on the 787 is very good. Regular distributions of water was very helpful since I wasn't able to fill up my bottle before getting on the flight."

Pros: "The cabin crew weren't charging people for alcohol on the flight"
Cons: "On checking in we had to use a machine to print our boarding passes and take our bags to a bag drop in Newark. The man proceeded to put a large tray on the conveyor belt, swing our bags in the air then smash them down into the tray. This was done to both bags as if we weren't there. Had there been something expensive in there it would have been totally destroyed. He really couldn't have cared less about our bags and their contents. We were talking to a woman on the plane who was telling us that a woman a few rows behind who had a new born baby as was told she would be given a seat with extra legroom had this taken away from her to United could sell the seat to someone paying for it. The chicken and orzo dinner was absolutely revolting. The orzo was so over cooked that it just turned to mush and the chicken really didn't taste like it had ever seen a chicken. All this combined with the issues we had on our flight out show that United are scum and just see you as ££. Sorry I cant be more complementary than that, its just the truth."

Pros: "MUY BUEN SERVICIO EN UNITED ME GUSTA MUCHO VIAJARVEN UNITED"

Pros: "Easy, no probs. Clean & on time."

I had to rent by my own money $160 a day. UA should arraign a hotel either close to the airport or pay the rental car for me."

Cons: "Viajar en United es desastroso. Los asientos son demasiado pequeños, yo mido1.57 metros y no me podía ni mover."

Pros: "The crew were nice though exasperated with cramped new planes and crowded restrooms. Flight was on time"
Cons: "After three years of flying all around US, realized United is the worst of the three major legacy carriers. I'm star alliance gold and it's still a painful experience. Crew admitted in latest redesign of planes they've managed to squeeze another six seats in coach. My seat wouldn't go back but even if it did, would feel too guilty for person behind to do it - so little legroom on newer planes. They've also cut down on restrooms so for most of the flight there was a line of 5-6 people waiting in the aisle. American Airlines seems to have older planes but at least decent legroom (and I'm not tall - anybody over 5'10 would have to sit at an angle on new United planes!). Been very impressed by Delta's service lately. United feels more like Spirit"

Cons: "Price was not competitive"

Pros: "Everbody seemed nice. Smooth ride."
Cons: "The back bins get filled too quickly. Same issue going and coming."

Cons: "It is June, not December. No idea why the delays. Got put on multiple different flights due to delays, missed connection and meeting. Turned around to go home at 3 am. It was hell. United is so disappointing, not the first time. Will avoid at all cost in the future."

Cons: "It took almost 15 minutes to get my bag back that I had to gate check. We were not allowed to carry on."

Pros: "New seats, comfy, legroom, pleasant FAs"
Cons: "Only coke products. Asked for tomato juice - was told it would be $2.50. Nope."

Cons: "My first time flying with Frontier. It is definitely a no frills airline - and with every little thing that they charge you for, it was no deal! I didn't end up with any kind of deal at all. I could have flown with a much nicer airline, and just quickly dropped off my bag outside (without waiting in a very long line, just to drop off a bag - even though I was completely checked in) I would have been given some free drinks and snacks, and watched a movie etc . . . For what I ended up paying to fly with a no frills airline, like Frontier."

Pros: "I like that southwest flew out of the same terminal Bc after the nightmares I walked over and happily paid full price for Southwest."
Cons: "2 agents for 300 bags in the same time window is not only unexpectable but poor customer service. Several people including 6 people in wheelchairs were deeply effected by this event not to mention. 100 of passagers without a answers. There was no staff at the 3 gates ! Even before the planes were scheduled to take off."

Cons: "Delayed check in, delayed boarding , delayed take off"

Pros: "Straightforward fares if you are literate and do your homework. Also love that short notice fares remain inexpensive. I will definitely fly them again"
Cons: "The gate service at Austin and New Orleans was bad due to airport operations, not Frontier."

Cons: "The sits, the tray table, the air conditioner,"

Pros: "I arrived safely, so that's pretty much all I care about."

Pros: "The rest was okay"
Cons: "It was delay"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They charge me $60 for my purse. $60 for a tiny purse"

Pros: "NA"
Cons: "Frontier just lost this customer for life. I'll pay a hundred dollars more to fly United. Getting socked in the face and drug out of my seat by the SS sounds more appealing than ever flying with Frontier again."

Cons: "Getting nickeled and dined for literally everything"

Pros: "Low fare"
Cons: "Felt like I bought a bus ticket.... and anything that resembled comfort had a cost. You have luggage? $$$$ you want leg room? $$$$$$ you want a seat that reclines $$$$$ you want a tray table? $$$$$$ you want something to drink $$$$$$$$$$$$$$"

Cons: "The intercom system was cutting in and out which made r difficult to understand what was being said overhead. Also we had to pull up after our decent to land because apparently Air Traffic control said we were too close to the plane landing ahead of us (the pilot came on intercom and said this). TMI."

Cons: "Seats are not comfortable. Not even space between seats and no leg room"

Pros: "Clear communication"
Cons: "Delayed flights due to wrong papperwork by airline."

Pros: "The attractive fare."
Cons: "Long delay on return flight."

Cons: "We were on the plane for 50 min"

Cons: "Added fees for seat and carryon luggage."

Cons: "Flight cancelled"

Pros: "The service was fine but the turbulence really was tough."
Cons: "Everything else."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The fact that they closed the gate 1 minute before we got to the terminal and refused to open it for us. We spent $700 and had to drive to San Antonio (2 hours south) to catch another flight. Thank GOD for Delta airlines ...."

Pros: "I got to Chicago sadely"
Cons: "They charge for air to breathe and the crew is so rude and inconsiderate"

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

Pros: "very warm staff"

Cons: "They overcharged me for my carry on. The woman at the Frontier desk at the Austin airport agreed, she gave me a phone # to call. I called after I arrived at home and the woman on the phone would not give me credit!"

Cons: "The fact we got diverted where Frontier wasn't"

Cons: "To have to pay for drinks and a snack, and cant lay seat back, small lap tray."

Cons: "Charging 45$ for a carry on..that is a scam."

Cons: "Lack of Handicap boarding Lack of leg room Seating unconfortable"

Cons: "The woman at the check in counter was rude, and by the end she had me in tears my bag was fine on the fight in but she insisted on charging me 60 dollars on the way home I had no money or credit cards on me so I had to beg a stranger for money, and when I gave her the 60 dollars she said with a grin on her face we don't accept cash at that point I broke down not knowing what to do she announced one minute to board and finally they let me on I was a mess by then! Never again will I fly Frontier!!!!!!!!!!! Robin M. Cahill 215-669-1108"

Cons: "30 wait to get off the plane"

Pros: "Pilot was funny. Put everyone at ease We arrived 30 minutes early."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats. My light was out so I could not read my book. No complimentary beverages"
