Pros: "The crew was very attentive and caring. While I worried I wasn’t going to get a seat, the staff reassured me if you paid for a ticket, you’ll have a seat."
Cons: "Alaska airlines did it well as they always do. My only complaints are ones that cross the entire industry where they are in a constant nickel-and-dime the passenger to death mode. This is no reflection Alaska alone all American airlines do it."
Pros: "Crew was good,,,"
Cons: "Don’t be an hr.late taking off for starters!"
Pros: "Food was good, crew was wonderful, entertainment was excellent!"
Cons: "Information or recommended products related to Airplane Ear as an email blast a week before flying would be wonderful! One of our party forgot they had these symptoms until it was too late!"

Cons: "my seat wouldn’t stay up, it was a little broken"
Pros: "Movie selection was very good"
Cons: "Gentleman sitting in front of my son was intoxicated and dropped his sauce on the floor which splattered on my son. I told the hostess who helped clean up the mess. The man was too drunk to even realize his own mess. Limit drinks. He bought 3 drinks on a 5 hour flight."
Cons: "14 hour delay with the worst communication I’ve ever seen. Completely incompetent and almost absurd. Useless."
Pros: "Alaska is my favorite airline."
Cons: "My seat assignments did not transfer to Alaska so I couldn’t get my seat assigned until just before I could board."
Cons: "first class service"
Cons: "I was in the last group being boarded (D) - by the time it gets to this group it seems a kind of controlled pandemonium starts and the staff just do their best to herd people in. I have an Alaska Air credit card and one of the selling points was to board earlier, but that has not been the case, as they reserve this for their higher level customers, whatever that means. Also, on this flight, I was very unimpressed with the crew, there was a younger African American man, who was particularly unfriendly, he clearly needs remedial training in customer service. I was disappointed with my experience this time as I have mostly found the crews to be very professional."
Pros: "Both the ground crew and flight crew provided exceptional service. They were caring, attentive, and very helpful from the time we arrived at the airport in San Francisco until we landed at Washington Dulles."

Pros: "Ammenities were my favorite for sure."
Cons: "I have nothing to be displeased about in my service given by Alaska."
Cons: "They separated my seat with my 2 years old son, far far away. My 2 yo son got the seat in row 13 while mine was row 23. Then the front desk staff could only help to switch to row 12 and row 13. We’re still not together. That’s horrible. Then when we got on the plane, I asked people around if they don’t mind to switch their seats, but still not working well. The flight attendants didn’t help at all. Just saying, “this is the best we can do.” What did they do? They didn’t even help me to work it out. Then one of the front desk staff came onto the plane and help me out. My son and I finally sit together. But the overall experience sucks! Alaska Airlines needs to train their crew to have more emphatic to the passengers."
Pros: "Everyone is so helpful and cheery"
Pros: "The selection of movies"
Cons: "Noisy unfortunately second to last row on the plane near bathroom noise and traffic. Loud conversations behind me. At one point a woman started playing music on a device and singing loudly. This was a night flight. I think one of the passengers finally asked her to stop, I would have thought one of the flight attendants would have approached her"

Pros: "Yes, they My have lost it but they delivered it to make up for the mistakes."

Cons: "Wifi didn't work. Very dissappointing."
Pros: "I reached y destination."
Cons: "One flight attendant yelled at me for switching seats, even though I had asked permission to move seats. Another flight attendant clumsily kicked me when leaning over to serve another passenger. After living in Japan, it's pretty rough to see the low bar of American customer service."
Cons: "The DCA airport was having some problem. 1.5 hours late. Not very good."
Pros: "I like having the adjustable head rests."
Cons: "There was no window in the back row of seats, which was claustrophobic. The seat rows are too close together, that it was hard to focus on the movie on the seatback in front of me. My seat didn't recline at all."
Cons: "Boarding was very slow and exiting the plane was also slower than normal. An overhead bin was locked and that delayed passengers"

Pros: "Loved the plane, people and timeliness"

Pros: "Snacks and drinks and movies on point."
Cons: "No cheese its."
Pros: "Early boarding for Seniors"
Cons: "Limited food"
Pros: "The efficiency of having my boarding pass on my phone (Apple Wallet). The Kayak and Delta apps streamlined perfectly and I was able to check in and pay for luggage through Kayak!

Cons: "Silly series of events. Maintenance problem before flight left previous city, got to us and we boarded only to deplane for more repairs. Ended up with another plane, five hours later. For a 44 min flight. Would’ve been easier to drive!"
Cons: "There really needs to be a way the airlines can better make seating assignments. I was in a window seat and the woman in the middle seat was so large that her arms took all of the arm rest and some of my seat area. Even crossing my arms I was unable to not have her arm up against me."
Pros: "love that each seat now has a USB connection to charge your phone"
Cons: "headphone jack to watch movies shorted in and out constantly"
Pros: "I will always fly Delta. I have tried other airlines and they don't conmpare to Delta's service"
Cons: "no access to sky club"
Cons: "Delta delayed our outbound flight causing us to miss our connection."
Pros: "Good food and entertainment choices on board. Little to no feedback from captain regarding inflight turbulence."
Cons: "Getting through security at the LAX Delta Terminal 2 was chaotic and the slowest I have ever encountered. There were two lines which moved at very different speeds. My husband got through his line 15min before I was finished in the other line. One line required iPads to be other, the other didn't. Something was seriously wrong with how things were being handled. Bathrooms onboard were a pigstie."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Avg flight"
Cons: "They changed my seat to a worse one without any explanation. I picked my seats on line for a reason and dont like them changed. Older MD series plane from AUS to ATL."
Cons: "Flight was delayed over 2 hrs, as a result, I missed my connection, had to stay overnight at a hotel"
Pros: "left on time - landed early. Gate checked my luggage for me."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "The cost of the ticket"
Pros: "As the flight was over two hours late and a runway at JFK was shut down I opted for a full refund from Delta as I would have been at my destination less than 24 hours. Kayak & Delta was good keeping me informed of changes including the 5 gate changes"
Cons: "Flight delayed due to weather and mechanical.. nightmare! Still not sure when I'll get to DCA . I was suppose to get in at 9:30 pm. Flight from atlanta won't leave until 10:20 pm."
Cons: "Late starts"
Cons: "Employees at the Atlanta airport have a SERIOUS chip on their shoulders. Just when you thought seats couldn't get any smaller or closer together. Paid for priority boarding but the boarding pass still said zone 3. Employees could care less."
Pros: "I was delayed coming from an international flight and was so thankful for the help from delta at the counter and at the gate. I did lose my bag but that was my fault in the confusion of jfk. I got my bag in 2 days."
Cons: "When i got my bag back the handle wouldn't go down fully. Baggage handlers must've mishandled it and bent something."
Pros: "On time...great service!"
Cons: "Seats were a bit narrow."
Pros: "Clean plane, friendly crew. Ahead of schedule arrival, pilots did beat to keep in smooth air."
Cons: "Took a bit to get first beverage. Thy ran out of KIND granola bars before reaching the back of the plane."
Cons: "Too many boarding calls for different levels of service."
Pros: "delayed. equipment failure."
Pros: "Timely departure."
Cons: "My daughter was traveling alone (as a college freshman) for the second time and her bag was overweight. The counter agent was impatient with her and made her feel embarrassed"
Pros: "The Delta staff at the Marine terminal at La Guardia were fantastic and saved the staff that re-issued tickets at JFK."
Cons: "5 minutes until boarding at JFK we were told to transfer gates; upon arriving by shuttle to the new gate, passengers were informed the aircraft was downsized and 20 people needed to be bumped. I volunteered since I had a flexible schedule so Delta re-issued me a ticket at 9am JFK for a 10am flight out of La Guardia. I trusted them I'd make it in time and they said they called taxis for us so we left to go catch them. Actually, no taxis were to be found so we had to call our own and were significantly delayed. I was in the first group of 5 people to be re-issued and arrive at La Guardia. Everyone else bolted but my new boarding pass didn't work and they actually didn't properly re-issue my ticket as I had been booked as leg 3 of my international flight from Malaysia. After they called three different departments including China they were able to print my ticket at 9:54am so I sprinted through the security and to my gate and was able to somehow make the flight as they were closing the door. However probably 14 or so of the original bumped passengers definitely didn't make it."
Pros: "plane left on time"
Cons: "seats were too close, luggage was delayed,"
Cons: "The stewards crew was very very very rude. The airplane looked like its going to come apart any minute. We could actually see rust in the wings of the airplane. I think the plane should be retired, for the sake of the flyers!!!!"
Cons: "Landing at Reagan national is generally pretty bad"
Pros: "Quick hop from Cincinnati to DC - efficient, nice flight."
Cons: "Plane was not clean and had dirty kleenex and yogurt containers in the pouch. Flight attendant told me to just not use the pouch."
Pros: "The staff was courteous even after a long night"
Cons: "Very little detail on further travel arrangments were provided"
Pros: "Very helpful and kind staff. Everything was on time and made for a great travel experience."
Cons: "It apparently was not noticed until the last minute that the plane parked at the designated gate was not the right plane. Just as we were ready to board, had to change gates. the announcement of new gate was not in clear English. Instead of saying 'C' as in Charlie, just C3, which sounded like a D, which would have been a concourse change. Little things, but they add up, when your previous flight was late on arrival."
Cons: "Horrible - Flight was diverted to IAD for no legitimate reason. Rebooked out of DCA with no travel vouchers. Most likely never booking with American Airlines again."
Pros: "Nice modern plane. Even though the flight was delayed, we ended up boarding earlier than expected and arrived pretty close to our original expected arrival time."
Cons: "The crew was nice and everything, but they weren't very good at making announcements on the loudspeaker. You could tell they didn't really know what they were saying or haven't practiced. One lady was trying to make a sales pitch for a new master card and you could tell she was reading and there were long pauses. My sense is that when using the loudspeaker to talk to the entire flight, one should be practiced and know what they're saying and communicate quickly and efficiently. Don't mean to be critical, but it's something that I noticed that could be improved."
Pros: "Crew service"
Cons: "Very cramped seating Delays on both flights"
Pros: "Boarded and took off on time; great crew"
Cons: "Waiting 30 minutes to get off the plane because they couldn't use the gate assigned to them."
Pros: "Shabby Cramped"
Cons: "Cramped Uncomfortable"
Cons: "The aircraft was hot. Barely any A/C. It felt like 78 degrees. Uncomfortably hot."
Cons: "Too cold on the plane"
Pros: "The crew was professional and very accommodating."
Cons: "Cramped quarters."
Pros: "Once I made it, they worked to get me on the plane from Chicago quickly."
Cons: "I barely made it for my flight in Chicago and that was with running. They were already boarding the other plane when my plane from Hattiesburg landed. Earlier in the day I had to get them to change my flight from Chicago in Hattiesburg because it wasn't changed for me when the delay had my original flight leaving before I was to land in Chicago. I don't fault them for someone getting sick at the last minute or my inconvenience, but it was still inconvenient."
Pros: "Have not travelled AA in a long time due to my disappointed but today's flight changed my opinion. Was impressed with every thing except that 1 cookie and a cup of water. Not a deterrent though"
Pros: "Narrow aisle and seating. Attendant looking at his phone the entire time we were getting ready to take off as well during taxiing and takeoff. Unbelievable!"
Pros: "I did not die"
Cons: "planes were old, they lost my checked bags, the seats did not recline on a 5 hours flight, the movie was the same for everyone on the plane, food was a disgrace, seats were so small I was pretty much bitting my knees the whole trip. Overall, I am ever flying with American Airlines or Latam ever again."
Pros: "I like AA overall, better than United for sure. I've been flying with AA since forever."
Cons: "Flight attendants arrived late, delayed the passengers. No blanket for main cabin when asked, my parents are old and they were really cold. Harsh landing but that's a give for DCA anyway."
Cons: "The flight to NY took too long and I missed the connecting flight to DC. There was no one to help speed up the process through security and customs so I could make my flight instead, I was just rebooked for a flight 4 hours later. I have to drive to Richmond, VA tonight to make work tommorrow. I hate this neglect towards time."
Pros: "Online check in scanning my phone and having my seat already picked out. Informative while on the flight and great spacing. Also like to know that there still is free carry ons allowed."
Cons: "Never enough leg room!"
Pros: "Flight was quick, seamless, on-time, and comfortable. WiFi available. Arrived 10 minutes early. Recommend the shuttle because if you don't get one flight, they'll get you on the next. These days, the shuttle is more dependable than Amtrak."
Cons: "Would appreciate a USB port or an outlet."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable. Entertainment was appreciated. Flight was smooth and landed early. There was just no offer of food unless for purchase and I was hungry and look forward to that. Even just a bag of pretzels!"
Cons: "See above"
Cons: "I wasn't able to fly Alaska Airlines due to storm in Washington DC. My first flight American Airlines from Charlotte to Washington DC was cancelled. The second flight Alaska Airlines from Washington DC to Portland was delayed, but I never flew. I got a direct flight from American Airlines from Charlotte to Portland instead."
Pros: "Crew was good."
Cons: "Boarding is terrible at DCA for commuter flights. You get on a bus packed in like sardines and the stand there for 15 minutes."
Pros: "It's not the person at the gate's fault. She tried to be very informative and kind."
Cons: "The flight was scheduled to leave at 630am. It's currently 945am and I'm still in the airport. Now a new maintenance issue was found. Flying is a first world luxury with first world problems."
Pros: "Everything was fine---smooth flight, no problems until after landing."
Cons: "We waited 45 minutes on the tarmac for a gate before we could deplane."
Pros: "Small airport"
Cons: "Service and flexibility, needed to call online for assistance"
Cons: "Delayed flight, moderately friendly crew, moderately comfortable flight, expensive."
Pros: "Everything was fine except it was inexplicably late!"
Cons: "It was over 30mins late for no reason!"
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: "Courteous crew, easy experience smooth "get in and get out" process"
Cons: "Flight was late due to weather but that's beyond anyone's control obviously"
Pros: "Airport expansion"
Cons: "Due to construction traffic is a problem but still manageable"
Cons: "Bags left behind."
Pros: "Quick connection"
Cons: "Tiny overhead bins - even in first class"
Cons: "Kiosks were not functioning and we were forced to stand in long lines for customer service for luggage tags Many passengers missed their flights No help for those using malfunctioning kiosks only one person to help hundreds of stuck customers and we barely made our flight"
Pros: "The stewardess/flight crew were awesome."
Cons: "Airport staff, tight seats and boarding process."
Pros: "Our experience was very smooth. We appreciate all the work that went into making this a pleasant experience for all of us."
Pros: "The flight was painfully uncomfortable for me, as a tall and not particularly small person. I should have known better than to take the window seat (Orlando to DC was painfully uncomfortable because I just don't fit in those seats). The in-flight service was good, but I was glad when this flight was over."
Cons: "Mentioned above"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly, flight arrived ahead of schedule, planeside check-in for baggage was expedient"
Cons: "The plane departed at least 15 minutes late but the departure time was never updated to indicate the flight was delayed...even when it was ten minutes past the beginning of boarding and the plane had not even arrived yet. Felt like an exercise to improve flight scorecard performance. The flight landed at least fifteen minutes early...but we didn't have a gate..and ended up departing the planeapproximately on time...but planeside checked baggage took almost thirty additional minutes to finally return to the plane full of waiting customers. Felt way too long....and the ground crew didn't seem to appreciate that most people had a connection..."
Pros: "The associates at the terminal, who faced long delays and concerned and frustrated customers were patient and gracious. Following prescribed procedures they made announcements, apologized and provided snacks for the long delay."
Cons: "Having to wait for an extended time in the terminal. Delays turned my 10 hour journey into 24 hours."
Pros: "wifi was great"
Pros: "Plane did not crash."
Cons: "Has anyone at AA ever watched the insane boarding process? No running water on the plane, not hot anything (coffee, tea, food). Generally terrible experience, like most of the airlines."
Pros: "The PWM airport, ALMOST makes air travel tolerable. Great little airport. Crew was pleasant, Seemed to enjoy their work. That, alone makes a huge difference in an industry that truly doesn't put customer service anywhere NEAR the top of the priority list."
Pros: "The quick boarding and kind flight attendants"
Cons: "Seat wouldn't recline. Somewhat nauseous smell at first."
Pros: "Service was not only on time we landed early as oppose to me losing 1300 usd on my original flight to dallas for work Friday which I didn't make and cost me out of pocket"
Pros: "All went well with the exception the crew was late"
Cons: "Crew was late"
Pros: "Ground delay but we still got there in time and I made a close connectionshort flight"
Cons: "Food was bad and crew never ask for food to economy passengers for long hour flight meal plan was not working I felt hungry and ac was too cold for all the time nothing good entertainment movies for different languages and no providing small personal hygiene kits for long flight"
Pros: "Very professional. Overall great. WiFi was free. Very fast. Left 3 minutes early and arrived 17 minutes early."
Cons: "Made me reprint my boarding pass. Bad food. No outlets. No in-flight entertainment."
Pros: "Great free Wi-Fi with a variety of movies to watch. Helpful, friendly crew."
Pros: "Excellent for a short flight. Good entertainment and a smooth ride."
Pros: "No flight to charlotte"
Cons: "Read above"
Cons: "Paid over 300$ and got no screen at all, no movies, no bending headrest. This airline is bad quality and overpriced"
Pros: "Flight was good and I am satisfied."
Cons: "My entertainment set didn't work because the headphone jack was broken so that was a major bummer."
Pros: "Ronald fight attendant made our first time to Europe trip very pleasing. He was amazing."

Cons: "We could have been on time"
Cons: "No legroom in economy"
Cons: "Flight switched, old plane operated by Privelage Style, 0 entertainment and poor service throughout the 7 + hours from Chicago, flight an hour delayed as well"
Pros: "Got from Austin, TX to DC in less than 3 hours. Comfortable seating. I'm 6'3" and had sufficient leg room."
Pros: "We liked the crew, they were helpful."
Cons: "We did not like the video on the United flight that used the app. We were not told about this until it was too late and the instructions were not good for how to get the app--they were misleading. I had to go to the app store, not the United website. Also, our seats were changed without our knowledge and the flight description for the flight from Austin to Washington, DC, specified complimentary lunch and there was no lunch unless you wanted to buy it. This should be more clear, so that I can bring my own lunch if there will be none provided."
Pros: "I boarded Lufthansa Flight# 568 on June 1st from Frankfurt to Lagos (my Destination) but forgot my pair of glasses. I made a couple of calls and was finally able to get a contact email address for email@example.com. He is the gentleman at the NAHCO AVIANCE office. He was not only very professional but went over and beyond corresponding well and was able to get the word across to the Malabo Airport where the flight finally terminated. My pair of glasses was returned from Malabo to Nigeria where I picked it up within a couple of days. I was so overjoyed at this display of fantastic customer service. Great job by the excellent team at Lufthansa. I'm going to remain with Lufthansa for future trips. Signed OF."
Pros: "Great crew, especially crew from Leesburg, VA, and Baltimore, MD. Made it fun!"
Cons: "I didn't get any food mainly because of the cost. I did get a complimentary drink. I did not get any entertainment but was under the impression there was a cost. Too short of a flight for that."
Cons: "Delay without updates. Almost missed my connection. No TV."
Pros: "My flight was early every time"
Cons: "All planes were booked fully"
Cons: "need to do pre assigned seating during the purchase of the tickets"
Pros: "finally reached our destination"
Cons: "germany was apparently having a strike. all flights were cancelled. we were made to wait overnight. then sent to frankfurt. then sent to venice. couldnt land there. we landed in bologna italy. then made to wait overnight. then we flew to rome. then we flew to chisinau... finally. what was initially supposed to be 18hr flight. turned into a 5 day trip. i want a refund!"
Cons: "The in-house wifi signal was constantly cutting in and out. Made it impossible to watch any of the media that was pre-downloaded on the United app."
Cons: "The worst part was the new seats are the smallest ever. I could not sit without my knees jammed into the seat in front of me, and on both legs, Ithe seats were narrow that the people next to me and I were overlapping shoulders - that was a first. Unless its flights in the future are significantly advantageous, United's losing my business. It's not worth saving a few bucks to me to be so uncomfortable."
Cons: "Cramped, lost my bags for three days."
Pros: "I liked having multiple lines for each boarding group. I think it would make sense to board from back of plane to front. I think it would make it go quicker"
Cons: "Having to check my bag plane side."
Pros: "Good service, good movies, fast flight"
Cons: "They could not get the sky way to work AND we had to take the Dulles bus then escalators then train then escalators and still a fair amount of walking and waiting to get to ground transport-- 1 hour from landing!"
Pros: "Everything was fantastic"
Pros: "The crew that helped get everyone booked on another flight did an outstanding job. Too bad we had to sit around for 3 hours to find out that the flight was canceled."
Cons: "Not enough communication as to the flight being canceled. Too long to inform us that it was canceled. We were told that the flight was always on time with the exception of the past few days. We were told that the service was starting to slip."
Pros: "The duration of the flight - no stops"
Cons: "The food was poor, the airplane was an old one"
Pros: "Aircraft was fairly clean and staff was courteous. Good entertainment options"
Cons: "1 hour delay after boarding on time. Rough landing."
Cons: "Nothing compares to QANTAS!!!!"
Cons: "No snacks offered on the plane"
Pros: "The whole trip was easy and non dreadful"
Cons: "Limited space"
Cons: "Maintenance delays and rerouting caused me to miss my reserved ground transit in LA... United claimed on the phone I would be reimbursed for a taxi, but changed their mind when I sent them a receipt a few days later."
Pros: "sufficient space for luggage overhead"
Cons: "too much chatter among crew, especially during boarding and disembarking rest rooms too small - claustrophobic additional, and roomier rest rooms could help wish announcements could be delivered more slowly, better enunciated, and less slurred; often cannot be understood; one often has to guess the meaning more smiles and friendlier tones and attitude could help having window seat can be very inconvenient when leaving one's seat"
Cons: "No TV"
Pros: "The aircraft size. The fact that the plane left and arrived on schedule."
Cons: "The overhead compartments were very small and didn't fit a regular size carry-on suitcase.."
Pros: "Great flight/great staff"
Pros: "Got there."
Cons: "Small, cramped seating. Outdoor jetway upon arrival."
Pros: "They boarded is quickly"
Cons: "Plane was delayed on runway for over an hour. When the passenger next to me asked the lead flight attnd about her connecting flight the attnd was extremely rude and of no help. Any ? was answered with "well just look at your united airways app". Then later I asked what gate we were coming in on and her reply was "the capt just said it". I replied saying "sorry I didn't hear it" and again the flight attnd answered "look on your UA app". I don't usually fly UA so I didn't have it. Overall she was short, snarky and rude with ever reasonable question asked. No one was rude to her but her attitude was shocking. I travel quite often and have never seen an antd speak or act this way to passengers. I understand things get stressful, but I def won't be flying UA again if this is the way they allow flight attnds to speak to customers. She way beyond rude and lazy and I hope the girl she was training doesn't pick up those traits either."
Pros: "Airbus is the best commercial way to travel"
Pros: "Fast, friendly, on time"
Pros: "Polite crew"
Cons: "Stinky plane"
Cons: "Customer service via phone was unhelp and kind of snarky. She knew I was several thousand miles from home trying to get back, but wouldn't arrange for me to get on a different plane without a $650 fee. Another airline would have bumped people off their flights so I could get hiome. I was not pleased that my missed flight couoldn't be accommodated reasonably. Apparently my ticket was wroth nothing..."
Cons: "Broken WiFi"
Cons: "Flight cancelled- rebooked then delayed 9 times- sat in airport for 12 hours for a one hour flight!!"
Pros: "Courtesy and smiling faces"
Cons: "I was sitting in the last row facing the economy class, the divided curtain wasn't wide and thick enough to give you some privacy."
Pros: "United made arrangements for me because of the flight delays"
Cons: "The first flight was delayed 4 hours so United got me a taxi to Dulles to catch my next flight. It worked but then that flight was delayed one hour."
Pros: "We were well compensated for a traveling fiasco. Our plane died in Newark. Our new plane wasn't big enough for 12 of us. It was a pretty crummy to spend Easter Sunday at the airport while our entire family celebrated the holiday. I do really appreciate the travel certificates we received for our trouble."
Cons: "As I stated above, we were stuck at the airport for the duration of Easter Sunday. We were supposed to be home by 1:30pm. Kind of a bummer to have wasted the entire holiday; but I guess that's what you get for traveling on holidays."
Pros: "I liked that your beverages are complimentary"
Cons: "1 ply toilet paper is unexeptable"
Cons: "I paid the 25.00 for my small bag which could have easily been a carry on, but I had a purse and small carry bag. I felt that WAY too many folks had backpack and two small carry ones, but by bringing them to the gate - the announcement was made its a full flight so you can check your bag for FREE! Next time, I will not follow the rules and just simply check at gate?? That is message loud and clear from your gate folks."
Pros: "Loved the fact that there was leg room !!"
Cons: "cancelled flight. Broken plane."
Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "Crew didn’t wear masks correctly."
Pros: "The flight was on-time."
Cons: "The seat, again, was the bad news."
Pros: "Fine for what I expected"
Cons: "Fine for what I expected"
Pros: "Nothing throughout the arrival to landing except the actual flight crew was at an even decent level."
Cons: "After having flown to Austin for the death of my mother my return flight to DC was delayed for over 8 hours. There was minimal communication and no real understanding of what was happening by frontier. When asked about any sort of compensation the employees were extremely rude and difficult. After so many hours they’re required to give a 50 dollar voucher but failed to do so. After not sleeping for multiple nights due to my situation I did not arrive into DC till 1am and had to drive multiple hours home in the middle of the night which was a major safety hazard. Frontier did not offer to compensate a hotel or anything for the inconvenice. Extremely disappointed in the horrendous service provided by the airline in this nightmare scenario"
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."
Pros: "The plane was clean. The food and drink selection was fabulous, although we didn’t get any because the flight was short and turbulent but good to know for next time."
Cons: "Wish I could check in online and have boarding pass sent to phone or print out myself."
Cons: "crew was loud and unprofessional. they were talking the entire flight very loud and then talked about bad experiences they had in the past and their party lives.."
Pros: "I have gotten used to the added costs for baggage. At least they didn't charge me for a seat assignment this time. The crew were nice and the flight went well."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly for the most part. Any chance you will get on flight wifi soon?"
Cons: "Lost bags"
Pros: "Getting off the plane was the best part"
Cons: "Babies crying kicking my seat screaming in my ear"
Cons: "Rude lazy attendants. No effort to offer even water to me on a two hour flight. All they wanted us to do was clean up trash to make their job easier. Nickel and dimed and this kind of service?????? Also didn't need a repeated 15 minute sales pitch for a credit card!"
Cons: "Same screaming infants. They were able to sleep but allowed to roam aisles."
Pros: "very warm staff"
Cons: "Plane was dirty, flight delayed, lost my bag, awful."
Pros: "On time, smooth landing, polite flight attendants"
Cons: "Seats, tray tables, pay for carry on"
Cons: "The two hour delay on the return flight"
Pros: "Despite DIA being closed the day before, we were only 35min late for departure, flight was without event and a timely arrival at DC. It may have been cheap, but you got what you paid for..."
Cons: "Bloody small seating, no refreshments."
Pros: "Even with very rainy weather in Austin, flight left on time. Crew was very nice on both our flights. Plane was clean. Comfortable enough--about what to expect in this day and age."
Cons: "A lot of fees with Frontier flights. Wny not just include in the original fare of the flight?"
Cons: "the crew was incredibly rude (to others and myself) the flight was delayed three hours and we weren't notified until we were supposed to board"
Pros: "It was fine--took off, polite crew, and landed safely. Can't complain about that."
Cons: "Our plane was delayed for over an hour. Picking up a bag from Frontier takes forever because you have to check what would otherwise be a carry-on. I wasn't aware of this as it was my first time flying with Frontier. Knowing that, I'd be able to schedule better. Don't love that they don't really give any refreshments or snacks."
Cons: "The initial price did not include a free seat . Had to pay $16.00 extra for a seat."
Cons: "Cancelled and terrible customer service"
Cons: "Having to sit on the plane for four hours in the same position of the seat."
Cons: "All frontier cares about is nickle and diming their customers. The flight was not too much less than any of the other airlines, but I should've done reviews before choosing them. They charge you $20 for your seat on top of your fare when you try to check in 24 hours early. They charge more for a carry on than a checked bag. They do not provide anything complimentary during the flight. Drinks are $2. Overall, I spent just as much as I would've with Southwest of American, but I felt ripped off and unappreciated. If you want a loyal customer base, Fronteir, I suggest you change your flight policies. This is 2016 and customer service is everything."
Cons: "They charged me 70 for bags.... Which is insane.... Without warning basically."
Pros: "I was fortunate enough to sit next to two passengers who calmed me down during the plane ride."
Cons: "The staff were aloof and slightly unprofessional. They did not seem to be very confident about the flight, which made me worried and concerned about my experience. They rushed through standard procedures and were not very comforting to passengers. I have never flown by myself before, so my anxiety levels were high and I was extremely nervous the whole time. I wish that they would have been a little more easy-going with nervous passengers, such as myself, because I left the flight shaking."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Arrived early. Crew pleasant. Hate the add on's but that is Frontier. New seats not comfortable"
Pros: "got me there on time"
Cons: "cramped flight"
Pros: "Speed with which I was boarded Pleasant Crew"
Cons: "Not able to get the seat I wanted Uncomfortable seats Having to pay extra for a small checked bag"
Cons: "Frontier not only raised their baggage rates, but they failed to load the luggage of at least seven passengers onto a one-way flight."
Pros: "The crew and boarding. Since I paid for a better seat, I was in front of the line."
Cons: "My seat didn't recline even though I paid an extre $50 for a better seat. Seating is very uncomfortable for me if I can't recline my seat slightly. Seats need to be more ergonomically designed for comfort. Also, not music or TV. The old planes use to give you these choices. The new planes suck!!!!!"
Pros: "New plane. Good deals on food, though you had to pay."
Cons: "4 hours late on departure, with various reasons given depending on the staff. Flight attendants were good at their job, but could not be both polite and stern (as in, please sit down while the plane is still climbing, or even a "Pay attention, please!" said during the emergency evacuation procedure discussion.)"
Pros: "Crew was nice and had a soft landing. You do get one free personal item wether it be a backpack or suitcase it's just supposed to fit under your seat and i put mine in overhead anyway so im sure it's fine as long as you get on the plane. so not sure what everyone else was rating. if you plan on extra baggage add it online it's much cheaper if you don't get it online add it at your check in kiosk BEFORE you go through security and it will save you 20 bucks."
Pros: "They should offer a tiered check-in scheme for baggage so it should be cheaper for those with small bags that are just checking it in for the convenience of others to not be cramped needlessly with baggage in their leg space."
Cons: "Charged me for CARRY-ON luggage at gate. First off , this is absurd. It reminded me why I fly with proper airlines. Second, this should have been made clear at time of booking so I realized how much the flight would ACTUALLY cost and book with a more comfortable and professional airline. The seats are awful and don't recline."
Pros: "I liked the amount of space I had in my seat that I voluntarily paid to have."
Cons: "The seat itself was not very comfortable. Also, a member of the crew was either not masking her disdain for her fellow crew members very well, or has a wicked case of resting-bitch-face, it was kind of off putting."
Cons: "The seats are extremely thin, very closely positioned, absolutely everything is for a fee, so if you weren't exhausted from sitting, you were exhausted from getting nickel and dimed. I will stay away from any Frontier flights from now on."
Cons: "Once I payed for the overpriced checked luggage fee and the hidden carry one fee and then had to purchase a seat on every leg of my flight, it cost me $166.00 to print my boarding pass. WHAT!!! Biggest scam I of airline moguls I have ever dealt with. Not only will I never fly Frontier again or never recommend Frontier to anyone, I will surely go out of my way to make sure everyone knows what a rip off it is to fly Frontier. I could have flown on a decent airline non-stop with a soda and maybe even a movie for what it cost me to fly frontier."
Cons: "Didn't make flight because online boarding pass would not scan, and there was no crew at ticketing counter to assist. I was told by TSA, and not the airline, that the same crew at the ticketing corner moved to the gate to board people 45 minutes before flight. Because I was there 40 minutes before flight, I got zero customer service. This was my first and last time flying Frontier! I wish zero stars was an option."
Pros: "The price."
Cons: "You shouldn't charge for a carry on."
Pros: "Flight was direct which is good."
Cons: "Time of flights are limited. Need more options. Drinks on board are pricey I thought"
Cons: "Everything..... To begin with I didn't even get to go on the flight I was scheduled for because I got there and when I went to print my tickets.... It was impossible to because it advised me to see the counter person... Well there was no one at the counter so I proceeded to the office... No one was at the office! I ended up missing my flight and losing my money... It seemed like some sort of scam ... Basically a loop you could not get out of and no one es there to help.. Worst experience!"
Pros: "Nice as it was a direct flight."
Cons: "Lured in by cheap price, then found out with all the bag fees, and if you want a drink on board you have paid the same price for an airline that has comfortable seats. The plane boarded 30 minutes early, which would have been fine if we had left early, but instead sat in the uncomfortable seats an extra 40 minutes until everyone made it to the plane. Last time with Frontier unless they are the only carrier gong to my destination."
Pros: "Nothing, it was the worst flight that I ever take."
Cons: "Customer service was a bummer. Charge for carry on? !!!!!! It's like stealing. It's stupid and it's not fair. The seats was so tide, it was like clastrophobia. All in all, bad experience ever."
Pros: "Being notified early"
Cons: "Not flying Not receiving a refund our voucher for the (2) 1-way tickets you cancelled & not being refunded for seats we paid to select on a flight that did not exist. Not having another Frontier option until Monday Being asked repeatedly on a call if I'd like to cancel my flight. You cancelled my flight. Give me half my money back."
Cons: "$60 for a carry-on; seats don't recline; tray is minuscule."
Pros: "Fast and cheap"
Cons: "Seat size and passenger room are terrible."
Pros: "I think soft drinks should be free."
