Broken tvs, unhelpful staff, confusing communication preventing smooth travel experience.
There was an enormous line at LAX trying to check in and check bags. Fortunately the staff were accommodating and allowed us to check our bags even after the deadline had passed -- but it was definitely an extremely stressful experience!
Appears to have been delayed to wait for other crews to get to Miami, its tough now but schedules missed count
Me and my son are first time travelers! And we had a AWESOME flight!
Cons: "Flight was delayed causing the connection impossible. Delta provides no way to communicate directly with a human making rebooking impossible. The lack of care destroyed our family reunion."
Cons: "More snack options"
Cons: "Not losing my bag on a direct flight"
Cons: "Not make me check my carry on when there was adequate room in plane"
Pros: "The crew was amazing. One of the flight attendants Keddie deserves praise for bringing me snacks even after the main serving was over when I was sleeping."
Cons: "Boarding at JAC was done by walking to plane. Signage for the correct plane was absent, and some passengers were erroneously trying to board the wrong aircraft."
Pros: "Trip was ok"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 1 hour"
Pros: "The screens, quality, travel, attendants"
Pros: "We landed safely"
Cons: "Out of everyone’s control Mother Nature"
Pros: "Seating is better than most other airlines. In seat entertainment option, bring headphones. Accommodating crew. Beverage and snacks provided at no cost."
Pros: "Great crew! Very friendly!"
Pros: "It was great, friendly staff"
Pros: "Middle seats were not booked. Cabin appeared very clean. Bathrooms were kept tidy. Very friendly staff. Appreciated cold drinks and the snacks."
Cons: "Flight was almost an hour late to board and depart."
Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "Everything was great and went smoothly."
Cons: "Love delta. Everything was excellent"
Pros: "Great crew"
Pros: "I liked the fact I was put into a quality seat after I had booked a normal economy seat. Nice upgrade. I got lots of leg room."
Cons: "The flight was delayed because of a maintenance issue. We made up some of the time, but it was an issue."
Pros: "Crew was wonderful"
Cons: "This COVID to be over"
Pros: "Great crew and friendly"
Pros: "Crew great....moved passengers around near us for Covid related separation."
Cons: "Cramped.....too many seats in too small of a plane....I'm 6ft / 190 lbs"
Pros: "Crew was very attentive. I appreciated the extra spacing between passengers."
Cons: "I would have liked to see alcohol served."
Pros: "Empty middle seat; disinfectant wipes. I know these measures were implemented because of COVID but I wouldn’t mind having these last past the pandemic!"
Cons: "Good for now"
Cons: "There should not be a pay wall around the internet in today's day and age"
Pros: "The plane was very new everything was good"
Cons: "Nothing considering the situation"
Cons: "The food service on the 3 hour leg but we knew that ahead of time so..."
Cons: "We arrived around 39 minutes early and the whole process was very smooth"
Pros: "The crew and entertainment options are great. Relatively comfortable seats by today's standards."
Cons: "Literally any of our flights could have been on time. None were."
Cons: "Best option across the pond, amazing upgrade prices"
Pros: "Airbus was nice"
Cons: "Delayed by over 1 1/2 hours"
Pros: "The entertainment was good."
Cons: "The check in and boarding process in Incheon was terrible! My flight ticket was printed and had the wrong name, which the agent at the check in desk did not catch. It was not until I went to the security line when they found a mismatched name. I was asked to go through security THREE TIMES. And then at the gate, I was supposedly "randomly selected" for ANOTHER swab/swipe security check. The flight itself was uncomfortable. There are not enough bathrooms for the number of people seated on the flight. The entertainment was the only excellent and recommendable thing about this delta flight."
Pros: "Overall experience was awesome. Always love to fly delta. Nice spacious and clean aircraft. Enjoyed the entertainment system."
Pros: "The KLM ground staff were extremely helpful and reassuring when there was confusion with my ticket."
Cons: "I booked KLM flights (Cork - Tampa return) but the planes were in fact Aer Lingus and Delta. So I have no idea what KLM is like. When I checked in at Cork the ground staff could only give me a boarding card for the first flight. For the second one she said I would have to go to the Delta counter in Amsterdam. It was difficult to find a counter there or staff as check-in was all by computer. The computer kept saying 'error' when I put in my code. I eventually was directed to a KLM desk (nicely hidden). I was told that my seat no longer existed. At this point the flight was ready to board. Thankfully the KLM ground staff were extremely helpful and reassuring and upgraded my ticket to economy comfort. On the way back, I could only get a boarding card for my first flight. The second two I had to collect at the boarding gate of the second flight."
Cons: "Dutch sub titels on fims would be good"
Cons: "Seeing as I’m still waiting for my flight, more than five hours later I am not inclined to rank it highly. This airport is an embarrassment and I will try my best to never fly Delta again. Weather is no excuse for this."
Pros: "1. Smooth flight itself and informed by captain well on expected time of arrival with frequent updates"
Cons: "1. I already had a tight connection and let the flight attendant know that I was concerned due to the delay. She seemed very laissez faire and there was no information about the connections gate overhead or when I got off the plane. I think that if the flight is delayed, the airline should let passengers know where the close connection gate assignments are to save them time (my flight landed ten minutes after my connection was boarding). 2. The carry on luggage section was impossibly small so I had to gatecheck my bag and it took five minutes to get my bag back. Given the tight connection, this created additional anxiety."
Cons: "Enhanced security procedures are onerous and caused the flight to be delayed 20+ minutes. Too many TSA staff at PLN doing too many things horribly inefficiently. Extra precautions (testing a Ziploc bag of cookies and several chocolate bars for explosive materials) did not make me feel safer or less inconvenienced by the theatrics of security."
Pros: "flight was canceled"
Pros: "Couldn’t find a thing."
Cons: "My husband booked West Jet by phone. They spelled my name wrong on the ticket which caused hours of delays tryng to check in...ultimately leading to our missing the flight. The time spent was around 6 hours....4 of them the were on one continuous phone call where we were bumped back and forth between West Jet and Delta. The problem was never fixed and we haven’t flown home yet. We have new flights booked on Delta but only because Delta took pity....West Jet does no refunds or reticketing. If flights are missed you're out on of luck!"
Pros: "Airport was being remodeled so there was a bit of confusion and lack of accommodation but other than that the flight was good"
Cons: "We were arbitrarily re-seated due to equipment changes, back and forth and lost our original seat selection even though we wound up on a plane with the original configuration. An international call wait of 1.5 hours was required to just get us back into the economy plus section that we had originally paid for, Amsterdam check-in was chaotic. In-plane staff was not at all helpful with our desire to get seats on the outside rows of our section."
Cons: "Plane was sat broken at gate and needed part to be flown in. 150 minutes delayed. Not acceptable."
Pros: "I paid only $100 more round trip to DTW from SLC then I would have with other carriers, minus the hassle of connecting flights and paying fees that they don't tell you about up front (like $25 for a carry-on bag, oh and a another $12 per leg for a window seat). My experience, like my previous Delta experiences was absolutely enjoyable. From the quick boarding, super friendly gate agents, and flight crew, to the free on board entertainment, Delta has won me over once again. Oh and did I mention how great it is to board a flight, relax and watch a good movie, take a small nap, and deplane at your destination! Awesome!!"
Pros: "There wasn't much to like. Just about everything was wrong. The plane was a newish 787, so it didn't feel old. Boarding went well because we complained about how tired we, at 70+, were because the flight was late and we'd been standing up; this resulted in us being boarded with some of the latish priority passengers."
Cons: "Everything, really. The plane was very crowded; small seats, little leg room. The meals were mediocre and the cabin staff were just barely the good side of unhelpful, officious and unfriendly The flight was inexplicably 2 hours or more late in excellent weather. No apologies given, the flight that was originally scheduled for 8 pm left close to 11 pm. While boarding the only light is a purplish ambient lighting that made it impossible to read anything, including the safety material, until the inflight entertainment was loaded up (the lights are only controlled through software-actuated virtual buttons on the screen). The inflight entertainment system is hard to use, too, designed by idiots for use by geniuses. But the very worst thing was the stress caused by Virgin Atlantic in just about guaranteeing that we would miss this flight. On our outbound voyage in January, VA, for reasons nobody knows, booked an ADDITIONAL leg from JHB to CPT on BA at 12:30 pm, even though we were already ON the earlier 9:30 BA flight we'd booked and paid for. Then, when we didn't show up for this spurious flight (because we were already in the air) we didn't book (BA swears they have evidence that VA made this booking), our return flight CPT to JBG three months later was cancelled WITHOUT OUR KNOWLEDGE. If I hadn't been interested in knowing, the day before the flight, if the return BA flight had a meal, I would have showed up at the CPT airport in April and discovered that I had no way to get to the VA flight in JHB! As it was I spent an entire day trying to get back on the flight I'd already paid for. I advise EVERYONE who uses VA to reconfirm flights over and over. There is still no explanation for this. I will never NEVER fly VA again. They are not to be trusted."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Our flights got delayed from Belize city and lost all connections. Had to sleep in the airport. Very disappointed with American Airlines. Will avoid in the future."
Pros: "ABSOLUTELY NOTHING"
Cons: "Flight was delayed over 3 hours because they had No crew to operate the flight! Such poor customer service on Americans part as well. No answers and rude agents when you tried to ask any questions"
Pros: "Not a lot. Entertainment options on board were decent. Food was alright."
Cons: "Everything! Crew were terse, rude and inattentive. Due to an issue with a bag on board without the associated passenger we had to taxi back to the stand for it to be removed before we could take off. This cost us an hours delay. There was limited apologies for this, no refreshments provided during the wait and poor communication of this. During the flight the staff were inattentive and sparing with refreshments. Service generally did not live up to expected level associated with an inter-continents flight. The flight was turbulent but crew and captain seemed over cautious with it and crew had to remain seated unnecessarily at times and at the detriment of passenger service. One stewardess wouldn’t even let me finish a drink before removing it from my hand claiming we were about to land and she had to sit down because of turbulence. We were still 40 mins from landing at this point! All in all a pretty bad flight, and it’s safe to say I won’t be flying American Airlines again."
Pros: "The speed at which everything was handled."
Cons: "It was great"
Pros: "The crew was great, the pilot was talented and the on boarding process was quick and smooth."
Pros: "Nothing was enjoyable."
Cons: "The flight was 4 hours late to leave and American did nothing to try and remedy the situation. Unacceptable that we are this late. I missed my meetings and they won’t offer any kind of voucher for future travel. But yet we have to pay for change fees!?!? I will absolutely avoid flying American."
Cons: "I tried to mark all EXCELLENT, but I couldn't get the circle to color in the circle excellent."
Pros: "Service and flight was excellent"
Cons: "They were great"
Pros: "Flight was smooth...take off to landing"
Cons: "Maybe had a flight crew on time and a plane that wasn’t 30 years old"
Cons: "Flight delayed 24 hrs"
Pros: "Almost nothing."
Cons: "Communication in delays (we ended up being delayed for 13 hours in incremental delays), poor planning, lack of knowledge at the operations level around how long crew has worked, boarded the plane then unboarded the plane as the pilot decided he wanted tea, staff unempathetic and dismissive"
Cons: "Tray table was dirty"
Cons: "Flight was 45 mins late. No drinks or snacks. Small plane. Forced to valet checkin carryon luggage :/"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful!"
Cons: "There were no headrests for sleeping or TVs on thr airplanes. Also the flight departure time kept getting pushed back and ended up leaving over and hour late as did our last flight with american."
Pros: "The flight crew were friendly."
Cons: "The boarding staff member was extremely overwhelmed being the only person at the desk. She visibly looked frazzled & made it well known. It made me feel insecure about the flight. Then the maintenance crew didn’t notice that there was a dead bird in one of the engines until after we were fully boarded and had to sit on the plane for an hour over our expected time. I appreciated the fact that they were being through for our safety, but catch that before you have people board."
Pros: "On-time, 20 minutes early!"
Pros: "Flights were always on time . Most staff members were friendly. Seats are comfortable. I looove that they allow you a purse and a true carry on ."
Cons: "Movie selection on long flights not impressive ."
Pros: "Not a thing"
Cons: "I wish these airlines would remember that people on the place are PEOPLE. After multiple delays, including one where we sat on a hot plane for over an hour, they did very little to make us comfortable. There's a reason why AA sits right next to United in terms of poor customer experiences"
Pros: "Free upgrade despite the delay so it was great."
Cons: "Getting baggage took an hour"
Pros: "Overall, my experience aboard America Airlines was great!"
Cons: "There was nothing not to like!"
Pros: "We received an upgrade for our seats, during the flight the staff were very attentive to us. The flight was quiet and calm."
Pros: "Great staff"
Cons: "Old plane, interior plastic yellowing, engine noise in rear."
Pros: "Snow ruined flight. Crew was great."
Cons: "No entertainment with this flight. Cookies good."
Pros: "The 777-300 is a beauty. So spacious! Traveling in the main cabin of this plane feels like you're in first class compared to other planes. Great in-flight entertainment. Clear communication from captain and crew. Overall, the best plane ride I've had in the last 5 years."
Cons: "The boarding process seemed a little unorganized but not a huge deal."
Cons: "A few issues: 1) I was not given seat tgth with my 9 year old and was not helped in finding seats together 2) they lost my bag after I took it through customs and I'm still (a week already) waiting for it."
Pros: "Everyone was nice, and accommodating. It was our 3 and 5yr olds first flight. Thank you very much American Airlines!!"
Cons: "The big delay (almost 4 hours) makes me loose my trip to Canada on the same day."
Pros: "The AA app for entertainment works well, friendly crew."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 90+ minutes, yet they didn't tell anyone until 90 minutes prior to departure. They knew of system delays and should have updated many hours before the flight but they didn't and had us all there very early waiting around doing nothing."
Pros: "Snacks and Beverage"
Pros: "Always on time and always comfortable."
Pros: "American did a good job. DFW concourse was ice cold and the speaker system was terrible could not understand a word she said. Very obvious DFW is outdated and tired airport."
Cons: "Old plane, no entertainment"
Pros: "Good crew."
Cons: "The plane was delayed for two hours!"
Pros: "Clean environment of the terminals and the speed of the shuttle."
Cons: "no comment."
Cons: "I bought some items when I was in Belize I get to Dallas to check my items into my bag and American Airlines has one person checking in bags and one guy standing in the hallway with a red coat on telling us where to go so I stood in the line for and hour and ended up loosing my items and missed my flight so I'm on a seven hr wait cause American Airlines can't get bags checked in on time"
Pros: "Everything was great. Slept the entire flight."
Cons: "Delayed three separate times, American Airlines employees were rude when asked why the flight kept getting delayed. Arrived 3 hours later than expected."
Cons: "We were waiting for 6 hours then our flight got cancelled. We got another flight which is in the second day !! And I am going back to MIAMI on Sunday 7:00 am . What a bad airlines!!"
Cons: "Flight from Ny to Detroit was delayed for 2 hrs. Coming back was worse after multiple delays, they cancelled the flight. they put me on a flight for next day with 2 connections which will reach ny almost 20 hrs later, no aplogises, no hotel room. After more calls put me in another United flight later that night which also finally got cancelled. I had to book a new flight with delta and paid $460 on the spot for that. Still awaiting my refund from American for the return leg which was cancelled and left a lady traveling alone stranded at Detroit airport in the night. Apology or compensation -- forget it, you will never get that! Only now if they can refund my cancelled flight..."
Pros: "Finally getting to my final destination and out of DFW."
Cons: "The flight was originally scheduled to take off at 8:20 pm, but due to several delays did not end up getting off the ground until after 11 pm. After being in the air for about 45 minutes we were informed that there were issues with the engine and that we would be turning around and heading back to Dallas. By this point it was after midnight, and although I was appreciative that safely is a priority, there was no communication as to what the next steps were. After landing we were finally told that we would have to deplane, and after we sat around the gate for awhile we were informed that the flight would be delayed until 5 am. Being 12:50 am at this point a hotel would have been nice, but we were informed that AA was "out of hotels" but that if we wanted we could have a $12 food voucher to use at the one restaurant that was open several terminals over. The AA employee assisting in handing out the food vouchers seemed extremely unapologetic about the situation which didn't help with the frustration everyone was feeling. I will not be booking with AA again, and will be passing along my negative experience to family and friends. It is worth spending the extra money on a ticket for an airline that is more reliable with better customer service."
Pros: "The crew was wonderful. Our flight was delayed 3 hours and they did their best to keep all the passengers comfortable and happy."
Cons: "There was no food or entertainment to rate"
Pros: "We arrived safely"
Cons: "Delay disorganized staff that was not friendly or helpful lost luggage"
Cons: "Plane out dated . It was sad. Tinny seats. And again they boarded all group 1 at once. And all of group 2 at once. Should of done by so many seats\rows. It was horrible. I wouldn't fly American again. Unless I won a trip"
Cons: "The only reason for the one star, is that there was no entertainment or did on the flight. So those categories didn't apply. For me, in my flight experience, it's to get to where i need to be and not to be entertained. Food and drinks aren't needed, I can get that when i get to my destination."
Pros: "On board crew were friendly."
Cons: "The lady working the gate said they do not upgrade service members to first class and could not upgrade our seats. She told us that all American Airlines have different policys in different states. Which is strange."
Pros: "Economy seating for such a small plane was great."
Cons: "This flight- one of the crew (female) had a miserable attitude. Like we were an inconvenience."
Pros: "Left early and arrived early!"
Cons: "WiFi didn’t work"
Pros: "WiFi Movie channels"
Cons: "Choice of snacks!"
Cons: "Not delay the flight causing me to not have enough time to connect In Frankfurt."
Pros: "Travelled with my 3 children they had a blast with the comfort and entertainment , next to the amazing professional staff!"
Cons: "THey would have loved the additional choices for food items...."
Pros: "Just outstanding handling of any upcoming issue, comforting travelers, helping lost moms not knowing what to do with their unbehaving sceaming kids. Helping rude business travelers to get more alcohol without charging them, and many challenges along that line, just handled amazingly!"
Cons: "just the food items available, would be so nice to have a few more options for purchase!"
Pros: "Entertainment was very nice! Boarded on time"
Pros: "The United staff and flight were great, no complaints. We arrived a few minutes too late for my partner to check in with his luggage so they even arranged it so that he would be able to still catch the flight but the luggage would be sent on the following flight. Definitely saved us from the stress of having to be split up and worried on when there would be room for him to catch an alternate flight."
Cons: "My complaints are with Newark airport (EWR). The AirTran took over 10-15min to arrive and when it finally did we had to get off and wait for another one which didn’t have space for everyone so a group of us had to wait even longer for the next one to arrive. A guy said he missed his flight last time that happened. They had more trains going to the parking lot for customers leaving the airport than they did for people catching their flights! Then there was only one security check in line, even for expedited check in. Despite allocating extra time for our overall commute, we still made it right on time for boarding so make sure to give yourself PLENTY of time when dealing with EWR."
Cons: "Did not board flight due to above Billund to Frankfurt flight being delayed and causing me to miss this flight."
Pros: "The best part of this flight was getting off the plane and vowing never to fly United again. They, in this experience were no better at doing their job - getting people from one place to another on time with a little comfort and dignity - than the cut rate guys. Miserable 13 hour trip for what should've been 4 hours in the air."
Cons: "13 hours of travel time for what should've been 4 hours on two planes. The first was staffed by a miserable crew who seemed bothered by the notion of having to deal with passengers. The second was staffed by a crew who couldn't see the passengers scrounging for anything to cover up with to keep warm. Both crews lacked any sense of pride and professionalism. Add delays to that and you have a sum total of a miserable trip home."
Cons: "The fact my luggage didn’t arrive with me in Detroit and that we were 30 min late and couldn’t get off the plane because of lighting like come on!!"
Pros: "Overall service at was very satisfactory on all the sectors. In-flight service was excellent. Lounges were good at Mumbai and Frankfurt. Pl. see my comments about United lounge at Chicago."
Cons: "I was denied an entry to the UNITED LOUNGE at Chicago Air port. The lady stated that this lounge is only for the departing passengers! She scanned my boarding card.and I said to her that I am departing to Detroit. She said I can enter if I am a GOLD card member or purchase a day pass for $59.00. I declined. I am under the impression that United is a partner of Lufthansa.and that they should honor the same Business class privileges as Lufthansa. I found it rather discriminatory act on the part of this particular employee of the United lounge at Chicago airport. Pl. bring it to the attention of the Lufthansa and United . I will appreciate follow up on this matter."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and the crew was attentive"
Cons: "The flight left an hour late. When arrived in Detroit the ground crew left our bags on the plane. It took over another hour to figure out what happened. The attendant was not on duty."
Pros: "Making the decision to never fly United again"
Cons: "Our bags had to be re checked at a 20 minute lay over. It bags didn’t even come out until after our connecting fight had departed. We were stick in Houston for a night and both missed work. We will never fly United again"
Pros: "Nothing really everyhing was mediocre."
Cons: "Delayed baggage, smelly flight, food"
Cons: "The return back to the state"
Pros: "Very few people on flight"
Cons: "Being moved to help balance the flight. ...would be nice to of an extra coke for my obedience"
Pros: "There were five flights out of our gate and we couldn't hear who was supposed to board because three people would be cross talking at the same time. All united flights."
Pros: "It was a quick and safe flight. We had two drink offerings and multiple water offerings. That was very nice. The foot space was actually more comfortable than expected."
Cons: "It's not that I didn't like the flight, it's that it is just normal."
Cons: "They booted me from my first flight, and the rebooking. Finally left on the 10 PM flight and then there was a mix up with my check in bag. No one knew whether it was on an earlier flight or on my flight. United Airlines is full of incompetent employees. Never flying with them again."
Pros: "Boarded quickly, seats had more leg room than I expected."
Cons: "United's check in process for economy fares requires in person check in (you can't check in online) so checking in at Newark was a bit of a hassle."
Cons: "We we're delayed at customs and missed our flight. We were told we were re-booked on a flight, so we ran across the airport, with two small children, to make that flight only to be told that weren't actually re-booked and needed to go standby. We then waited in line at customer service for two hours to be informed that United won't pay for a hotel. The customer service rep. did offer that if we wanted to take our kids across the airport, now at 11:30 at night, we could look for a United Supervisor in Terminal E, and if we were lucky enough to find one, they might override the policy and cover the hotel. Really! I understand that United doesn't have control over customs, but United did book an international flight with just over an hour layover, knowing that any slowdown in customs means missed flights. That's fine. The problem I have is when it happened, United's Customer Service model was to provide misinformation, incredible slow service, and what seemed like a complete lack of interest by United employees to do anything to make the situation better. There were no supervisors at the service counter, only 1 representative for an hour or so, and when the other representatives showed up, they were discussing going on break and going home. All with a very long line of people stuck in the airport waiting to get some help. I could accept this as an isolated instance, but since booking this trip, I have been getting the same level of service over the phone while trying to submit a refund request for my son who did not join us on the trip. United's 24 hour refund policy has taken 6 weeks and many hours online and on the phone and I still have no idea what the status of that request is, and apparently neither does anybody at United. The interaction I have had with your employees have been friendly and courteous, but extremely time consuming, with a lot of incorrect information and no resolution. Very mediocre at best."
Pros: "The staff was great!!!"
Cons: "The food needs improvement."
Pros: "Flight was timely"
Cons: "Staff was extremely rude"
Cons: "Waited until boarding to give me a seat"
Pros: "Staff very friendly as always."
Cons: "Delayed flight. Paid for Wi-Fi and it cut out halfway through the flight and was extremely slow so I wasn't able to get much work done. Not worth the purchase."
Cons: "My flight last week they had us board and then de plane do to plane maintenance after I traveled litterly all day it added an extra hour. Then this flight Washington connection to Detroit from raleigh the pilot never showed up and extra hour went by, we got a new pilots but, then leading to faulty paperwork that took another hour and thirty minutes after boarding the plan to get sorted. When we got that sorted they then proceeded to tell us that the flight atendent had to leave and we had to wait another 20 min for another atendent to arrive before finally making our way to Detroit. They said to file a complaint and we would be compensated for our wait. Not sure if this is the right spot but I'm giving it a go. Thank you Keith Www.keithschmidt.com"
Pros: "I liked that I finally made it home despite all the drama."
Cons: "I didn't like that I booked a flight nearly 2 months ago to only find out I didn't have a seat. I do understand its legal but I don't get how you are putting customers first by causing this drama. I understand how that DR felt when your guards ripped him out of his seat. I spent nearly 3 hours trying to find babysitters and alternate rides all while the snotty lady at the desk kept saying "you may not be flying out today but I cant tell you for sure". So to insure the bottom line you overbook then bump people at your leisure? This little game effects many lives above and beyond just the passengers. I don't plan on booking with United ever again. Why would I? There are many other options that take customer service more seriously. I would love to speak to someone higher up in this organization. But, im sure that will never happen."
Pros: "The crew were helpful and did their best to manage delays."
Cons: "United is has delayed my flight on 3 out of the last four trips. 40 minutes, 1 hour, and 2.5 hours."
Pros: "Kind flight attendants"
Pros: "Belize City airport is tiny and easy to get through. They also board passengers through the front and back of the plane to speed things up."
Cons: "Waited 40 minutes to pull into our gate in Houston, which put us in a bit of a bind to get through security and onto our connecting flight. The next flight was overbooked and crowded."
Cons: "This was a tiny cramped plane and didnt have much comfort."
Cons: "This experience felt very "cheap". I have flown united many times and never thought this before. Not including a checked bag for an international flight seems ridiculous. I understand for domestic travel, but international is different. Same with not having an in-flight movie. Even one or two free options, or free tv or something. The only "free" included bringing your own device and paying for the wi-fi."
Pros: "My flight got cancelled. I went to SanDiego inste6"
Pros: "I liked that the flight was on time and there was absolutely no delay. As soon as we boarded we were on our way..I was such a pleasant flight with very little turbulence."
Pros: "I liked that when the plane actually arrived to newark that the boarding was swift. The pilot and flight crew were good."
Cons: "The plane was late. I flew out of Detroit because it was cheaper than flying out of Cleveland where I live. So due to this flight being late I had to pay more then expected to get my car out of the parking garage and got home an hour and a half later than expected which got me home at 3am versus 130am (original time I would have been home IF the plane would have been on time)."
Pros: "Crew was great as well as the boarding process."
Pros: "The crew was very professional and promptly getting people into their seats."
Cons: "Boarding the plane was slightly hectic, but due to lack of attention on the passengers part. A seat was double booked and the crew handled it quite well in addition to a woman who insisted on sitting next to her older child but hadn't planned for it."
Pros: "It was very quick boarding, it may have been a bit confusing though."
Pros: "I have absolutely nothing to say good about this airport"
Cons: "We were canceled (our flight in Newark) were herded around like cattle and then left to fend for ourselves .. With no apologies .. We got jumbled around to three different flights until we found one that would fit they try to get us on one flight and boarded in like 45 minutes and there was no way were going to make it manageable us around again , it was awful.."
Pros: "They gave us free direct tv"
Cons: "There was no notification or update that the electronic systems aren't working it took over 3 hrs to get checked in then another 2hours to get an electronic boarding pass. Then when we got to Houston we have to wait for the gate to open because the gate shorted out. The worse experience ever"
Cons: "The whole services!"
Pros: "The crew on United was very helpful on my July 2 flight"
Cons: "You sold me a ticket on Lufthansa. When I got to Charles De Gaulle airport in Paris I waited 45 minutes in line to check in with Lufthansa. When I got to the counter they said they had no record of my reservation. When I showed them the Lufthansa reservation they told me it actually was for a United flight, even though it clearly said Lufthansa . I had to wait another 45 minutes in the United line to retrieve my boarding pass, then about another hour to go through passport control and security. I barely made my flight. I will never make a reservation through Kayak again. I am deleting your app."
Pros: "Quick, comfortable, smooth, and pleasant"
Pros: "We experienced a lot of turbulence during the flight but the pilot handled the situation extremely well."
Cons: "The turbulence"
Pros: "The seats were more confortable. They could be a bit taller for head room but space between seats and the width of seats were very comfortable."
Cons: "The crew seemed very unpleasant. The guy (head crew) was very rude. When asking us to do things he just said it with a tone that was very unneeded. You could tell he didn't want to be there. The lady flight artendant was nice just facially her expressions make her look stand off ish. They talked about passengers to each other in the aisle ways and made comments that "they've talk to this lady each several times and she's not listening". Seemed like private conversation they could try and have."
Cons: "Tried to charge us $200 for 'oversized luggage' when we have flown with that bag 2 other times. The UA tag was still on it! Then, after the kiosk agent slapped my hand away from the machine, I asked for a supervisor, who declined the bag anyway. But after prodding asked for a solution, a box(nice and convenient to handle through an airport) & we had to throw our expensive piece of luggage away, only to see a worker pull it away from the trash. By this time, it was 20 minutes until departure and I had to ask the same supervisor for assistance, pointing out our situation. Are these workers not trained to know which flights are leaving when? Or do they just not care at all? Worried we might not make the flight, we asked for a ride from 2 transit vehicles(I have a rebuilt knee and can't go fast) and you guessed it, were denied. Regardless, we eventually made it to the gate to be greeted by a 'oh there you are' where I tried to grasp for some, for any understanding from this company. Ok, here's the kicker: when we got on the plane, there were many open seats in the middle. My mom asked if we could sit in one and was told that it would be $91, even though the flight wasn't full. What is really going on? So there we all cram into the back of the plane. I am Not exaggerating when I tell you that I could not extend my are fully in front of me-that's how close the rows were!! The video was playing the safety message and we all looked at each other knowing that there was no physical way to reach under the seat 'in the case of a emergency'. The flight was turbulent, but you can't really help Mother Nature & we arrived alive, so I'll give you that. But as we landed, a piece of the seat in front of us landed on my moms foot. So, yes, rating 2. email@example.com"
The plane was extremely cold, which made it even more difficult to sleep on the red eye.
Cons: "Seat comfort and room for plus size people. More than water to drink. Snacks!"
Pros: "Good grew. Good flight"
Cons: "Notification of delays and reasons for delays"
Pros: "Cost of ticket. Direct flights"
Cons: "Nothing really to dislike. Frontier is a discount airline, no frills and this is great if you just want a ride to wherever they go."
Cons: "Almost two hours of delays with no communication what so ever. Sat next to a woman with a child far to large to be sitting on her lap without any sort of second thought."
Cons: "kept changing gates flight over hour delay"
Cons: "Seats confining, tray tables miniscule, seatbacks unadjustable, complimentary beverages, i.e., water, grudging, reading light inoperative, luggage fees predatory. Oh, and we were sent to the wrong baggage carousel in DTW. A once in a lifetime experience"
Cons: "No soft drinks included with flight."
Pros: "Fast, curbside check in at the Denver airport."
Cons: "The Denver airport needs to provide shade for the employees baking in the 90+ scorching sun and heat at the curbside check in point. The website navigation needs to be more user friendly"
Pros: "Like low airfare."
Cons: "Don't like having to pay for every little thing, like carry-ons, sodas + snacks on trip, and seating. Feel nickel + dimed to death, negating savings."
Cons: "Flight was overbooked so they asked people to give up seats. Because of the overbooking, we were delayed in leaving by about 30 mins."
Cons: "Every possible thing that doesn't include you putting your self into the seat is charged for. $40 to check a bag. Charge to pick your seat. No complimentary water or snacks."
Pros: "Plain was clean, new. Boarding was good, everyone was friendly"
Cons: "One of flt ttendance did not stop talking a out work experience with previous clients. One was talking about diper they found. One was talking about eye surgery. . TMI Also I m 6'9" it is ridicules I have to pay extra to be semi comfortable in my seat. I had to pay to get more leg room on for. I cant fit in regular seat. Not enuff leg room"
Pros: "Crew was pleasant enough. It would have been nice to have been offered free water on flight."
Cons: "I questioned the mechanical condition of the plane, while still on the ground. The plane made some strange sounds before taking off. Seating space was confining. I did not like all the "nickel and dimeing" while booking flight."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 4 times. Over 6 hours later, with no explanation. Causing me to pay for a hotel room that I didn't stay in. Miss a meeting for myou business. Costing me monry. Horrible."
Pros: "Low fares"
Cons: "The almost 1-1/2 wait to check in luggage. I realize they say come 2 hours prior, but didn't anticipate that I would spend the bulk of the time checking I. Bags. There should be 2 separate check in"s, one for. Aha and one for people buying tickets."
Pros: "Cleanliness of plane. Crew was very courteous."
Cons: "Lack of leg room"
Pros: "The pilots were friendly & competent."
Cons: "My gate was changed with no alert on my phone or at the original gate! I almost missed my flight because nothing was said about the change! Also my seat was changed without my notice or approval! And the flight attendants were not friendly at all! No hello or welcome when boarding, nothing during the flight."
Cons: "Long line at check in, even though we had check in on line. When I buy a plane ticket I don't want to buy a seat. And paying for carry on is a joke"
Pros: "The crew was nice and plane was clean"
Cons: "The seating was very narrow and uncomfortable. It felt like you were sitting on a stadium seat. Also, please provide ALL info regarding EXTRA CHARGES. I was NOT pleased to find out I had to pay an extra $40/45 for carry-ons and checked bags upon check in."
Cons: "It's a sham to offer an "inexpensive" ticket price, when that payment only ALLOWS you to pay additionally for your seat! checked luggage! carry-on luggage! any and all food and drink on the plane! The trip ended up costing us twice the ticket price. When we landed in Phoenix it took 45 minutes to get our luggage because they were short on workers, so the same people took our luggage off the plane, then loaded the next flight's luggage on the plane while letting ours sit in the rain, before bringing us the off-loaded now wet luggage. Flight attendants barely do anything! Mostly they stand - or sit - around in the back talking and laughing amongst themselves. Never again!"
Pros: "Both flights felt like there wasn't a sense of urgency. Although my flights went smoothly personally, others fell victim to the extra fees for not checking in a bag ahead of time. The customer service when checking into the flight to Detroit was appalling, however. The reps made us check in at a certain time and then disappeared when that time came, leaving a brand new employee to himself and I'm assuming a manager with his arms crossed. Not engaging his line, letting them know he'd be right with them. Customers frustrated began cutting the line and it's understandable, getting charged up to three times as one put it for the same bag. All that aside, I liked that I could pick my seat and naturally chose the front of the plane. The crew on way home was amazing! Very friendly and kind hearted."
Cons: "Late, staff seemed disgruntled, no water offered on either flight and both times were on the plane over 4 hours. Seriously, no water? Sad. Won't be flying Frintiere anymore because the tickets might be cheap but they upsell and charge for everything and the service is not good. The same as Spirit. Sorry guys, you lost my patronage!"
Pros: "It was delayed in AZ"
Pros: "It was awful. Worst flight I have ever been on. Delayed for no given reason and then it took two hours for our bags to make it to the carousel. Never flying fronteir again."
Pros: "Hours and hours of delays both flights. No one giving updates. No apologies. Have to pay for every single thing (extra to pick your seat, extra for every single bag, they give you no snack or beverage, seats do not recline). With all the extra fees it was no cheaper than any other airline out there. And every single airline I've been on has been substantially better."
Cons: "The flight to Denver on the 21st was cancelled and I was notified the return flight would also be cancelled which it wasn't. I re-booked with another airline only to find out the original flight with Frontier was not cancelled so I essentially paid for two return flights. Will never sly frontier or spirit ever again."
Pros: "Price, the actual flight itself(flying)."
Cons: "Certain insensitive employees, the enormous price difference from online to face-to-face purchase of bags, needing a gate pass to escort children/loved ones to their gate and not being pre-informed."
Pros: "The actual flight is fine. The leg is just about 60 mins and the price of the fare is the most attractive portion. For $50 RT, there is not much to expect when you fly a discount carrier. What made the trip a bad experience was the return flight, where two consecutive flights were cancelled with no clear explanation to the reason (definitely not weather related). To reach my destination in time, a separate one-way ticket had to be purchased at an alternative near by airport. Frontier is certainly a low cost carrier, but not very reliable to Reach your destination"
Pros: "The quick refund"
Cons: "The flight was canceled due to weather (obviously nothing Frontier could do about that)... Our bags did not even make it to the plane we were supposed to board and were misplaces for a week. Baggage staff was rude and unhelpful."
Pros: "We did not crash."
Cons: "3 hour delay, really no frills, we did get a cup of water (grudgingly)."
Cons: "The disorganization checking one check bag. I arrived in plenty of time. Very long line to check the bag (no skycab available). Majority of people in line arrived with only a short time before their flight and had to be rushed ahead of me to get to their flight on time. I finally arrived to the front of the line after about 45 minutes and 50% of the people behind me were on flights leaving in 30 minutes or less and had to go ahead of my husband and I. They obviously did not arrive with the advised amount of time allowance. It wasn't my fault I arrived with plenty of time and I had to deal with the verbal abuse from people having to go ahead. Maybe if they missed their flight, next time they would arrive earlier with enough time. It sure wasn't a very pleasant experience at all."
Pros: "thankfully a quick flight"
Cons: "horrible and uncomfortable seats, took over an hour to board the plane, poor service"
Cons: "In AZ visiting flare up heath issue cause concern for me to want to wait a few days to travel, I called in advance to change flight 1.) Couldn't get an American worker on the phone, workers are in the Phillipines! 2.) The rep stated a doctors note was necessary and I would pay $99 but if I couldn't provide a doctor's note then it then was $99 plus any amount over the cost of ticket. 3.) Loss over $350 on the trip departure flight from DTW to PHX. 4.) Charged baggage fee and never went on a flight"
Pros: "Affordable On time"
Cons: "small spaces although bigger than Spirit"
Pros: "Arriving early"
Cons: "Haven't to pay a fee for my actual seat and checked bags. Seems very excessive."
Pros: "Crew was good, flight was fine. Comfort of the seats much less"
Cons: "Sat in seat 3c, felt as though all the padding had been removed. Very hard on my back and butt for only a 2 1/2 hour flight. Think I'll skip Frontier despite the cheap fare to arrive sore and stiff is not how to travel"
Pros: "The flight attendants"
Cons: "The screaming kids and babies"
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "How hard it was to find a way to check a bag on-line. AND How they loaded a whole 2 planes, then decided that they had all the people and baggage and crew on the wrong planes, had us all get off and then switch planes. Are they Crazy???"
Cons: "It's ridiculous that you have to pay 40$ both ways for a carryon, your airline advertised a cheaper flight but with hidden fees. Will never fly again."
Cons: "Having to pay 80dollars for luggage terrible wont do it again and199 for water!"
Pros: "Price of airline ticket. , plane was fairly new and we had a smooth ride all the way to our destination."
Cons: "Seat were small and didn't recline . No wifi ."
Cons: "I was told my carry on bag was not a carry on and I had to pay 40 dollars extra to have it put in the cargo hold. When I looked at the other passengers bringing on their carry on bag which was the same size as mine I felt I was ripped off for an extra fee just to make money off me. I will never fly frontier crappy airlines again."
Cons: "There was only 1 agent at the gate, they were looking for volunteers to give up their seat. I got in line with 3 others, but he was the only one to take tickets as the boading process was under way so there was nobody else at the desk for our questions about when the next flight was, what was the compensation etc. Very disorganized. Their offer to give up your seat was a joke. No flights available for 2 days. JOKE"
Pros: "Flight was very cheap."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by three hours, we weren't given notice of this until AFTER the time we were supposed to start boarding. We were promised breakfast/lunch vouchers and a voucher from Frontier, however we never received the breakfast/lunch voucher...so people sat around waiting for this voucher instead of going to get something to eat on their own. I did receive a flight voucher for another flight with frontier for $25 off, but I must book in 90 days. I understand flights will be delayed time and again, but it was how they handled the situation, how we were promised vouchers we did not receive and how we were NOT notified earlier of our delayed flight that I was upset. Airlines should be upfront with their customers who may be traveling for time sensitive events."
Pros: "There was a gate issue in PHX, but they found another gate and we still arrived on time."
Cons: "I do not like random seat assignment. I was not aware of this until check-in."
Pros: "Efficient and quick. Got us in 30 minutes early"
Cons: "Small tray tables"
Pros: "The price of the flight, the hospitality, and comfortable arrival was all A1"
Cons: "It was a good experience"
Pros: "Frontier Airlines were a pleasant change from Spirit Airlines if only from the point that there were no delays."
Cons: "I can't think of a single thing other than the seat prices and the luggage charges are more than Spirit, however, the weight maximums are more than Spirit allow and that was pleasing."
