Screaming crying kids. Kid kicking seat. Late to board. Late to leave

Pros: "Crew was great, the seats are never comfortable"

Pros: "Flight was short"
Cons: "My seat didn’t have a window. The woman who booked it told me there was limited recline, THERE WAS NO RECLINE, and she left out there is no window even though she asked me if I wanted window or isle and I chose window. I felt like I was in a closet. Landing was incredibly harsh."

The fact that it was over an hr delayed. Then an hr to get my bag in Dfw

Pros: "Entertainment on seats"
Cons: "I sat in seat 12A- the window was so hot it was burning my arm and I was extremely hot. Not sure if it’s from the engine heat or sun but it’s probably a mechanical issue that the 737 should address. Horribly uncomfortable trip."

Pros: "The seats were comfortable and it was easy to catch a quick nap."
Cons: "I wasn't offered any type of sanitation wipes like I was on my way departure. The airport in Mississippi disnt offer any type of sanitation such as hand sanitizer or a reputable substitute.

Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "Delayed on the tarmac"
Pros: "Getting off the plane"
Cons: "3 hours late flight- customer care very insensitive and unhelpful"
Pros: "Great"
Pros: "No blankets no entertainment"
Cons: "I could not pre-check or request different seats on the CP website. I think that this was because of issues with the website, apparently due to IT system communication between American Airlines and Cathay Pacific.......on all six flights. On the transfer in San Francisco, Customs was closed when we arrived in San Francisco and we had to haul all of our baggage from one terminal to the other. There was no direction on how to handle this issue of Customs being closed while on the flight to San Francisco. I had to explain the issue of to the CP customer service crew in SF. The CP desk and they had never heard of it. American Airlines was equally poorly trained. I will also say that while at the CP customer service, there were three young adult males that we're not busy at the time and the watched us unload the baggage carts onto the scales and conveyor and then reloaded on to the carts to push to the AA terminal. We handled the bags two additional times because the CP staff did not know what to do and how to handle it. Other passengers were confused as well."
Pros: "Flight attendant was dilligent"
Cons: "Getting canned and put on a flight five hours later. Good job AA"
Pros: "Organised, clean"
Cons: "Food... pizza... bad idea to serve during a flight. Moreover, the smell and the taste was bad"
Pros: "Plane was surprisingly spacious in coach and very clean."
Cons: "They seemed to have entire plane boarding in group 6. Hardly anyone boarded in groups 1-5, and when they called 6 the entire gate area lined up."
Pros: "I am so glad that there is a direct flight from Des Moi es to Philly. Our flight home arrived a little early and the crew was very responsive and professional."
Pros: "The gate was close to security, quick embarkation, departure on time, kind and professional service, decent size aircraft and overhead bins."
Cons: "Kind of dated, wifi didn’t work."
Pros: "Too many commercials on the TV before being able to watch the show."
Cons: "The aisles are not wide enough and people continue to hit me with their luggage and hand bags. Always the people waiting block the entrance of the gate when it is time to board."
Pros: "None of the experience was pleasant"
Cons: "First flight was delayed causing us to miss the 2nd flight and we ended sleeping on a chair at the airport waiting for a morning flight. AMERICAN AIRLINES didn't even have the decency to put us in a hotel for the night due to their delay. Then they added a 2nd lay over which was delayed for hours also. Traveling was to visit my mother who had cancer and I was sick so this made the trip even more distasteful."
Pros: "Nice staff. Seats are comfy."
Cons: "A lot of pushy people. I think it always happens on the flights back from vacation destinations, people are burnt out and want to get home. The American airlines staff were fine, though."
Cons: "They were late because of bad scheduling and the gate agent was rude"
Pros: "Everything was great about my flight from Buffalo. Friendly people, easy boarding and flight was smooth as I expected."
Pros: "Safe, efficient and pleasant flight. I would fly American again. I appreciate getting a soda and snack included."
Cons: "No movie. I got "spoiled" on flight from Seattle to Phoenix with a movie perk. Was looking forward to another on the 2nd leg of our trip. I thought maybe it was an "American" thing. ... but apparently just got lucky on first leg."
Pros: "Flight attendant"
Cons: "Delays Was told my ticket had been canceled"
Cons: "You make me deplane just to take my bags from me because they don't fit the plane when I just flew 4 hours across the country."
Pros: "Eveything ran smoothly"
Pros: "Awesome crew. Comfortable seats. Great entertainment options. Good food."
Pros: "Left and arrived on time. Crew was friendly and professional."
Cons: "Passengers are packed in like sardines. All carry on bags must be checked at the gate as the overhead bins are too small to accommodate anything except a small personal bag or jacket."
Cons: "5 hr delay"
Pros: "Flight was on time and boarding went smoothly."
Pros: "I paid for extra leg room and I got it. The only thing I was in the row right behind first class they require you to put all of your carry-on above even a purse. I had never had that before but I guess that's common practice."
Cons: "Poor snack options"
Pros: "Outstanding crew and pilot dealt with some tough weather issues"
Cons: "Checking one bag took 30 minutes. Very stressful"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled. this is the third flight that has been cancelled to this destination. I waited for 7 hours in the airport and caught a flight on stand by. Because this has happended to me before I knew how to get a stand by ticket right away even though I was scheduled on a flight for later that day. Much later."
Cons: "Why are there no more blankets?!?! Or if there are - they are for First Class only. Ridiculous"
Pros: "My flight was late leaving buffalo ny which caused me to miss my connecting flight in Phl.... Never once was this delay communicated to ONE person sitting at the gate in buffalo. I even asked the attendant in buffalo if the plane was present at 1:10 pm and he responded that it would be landing in ten minutes. We were scheduled to board at 1:16 although I am highly disappointed to have gotten home 2.5 hours later than anticipated...communication is my biggest complaint here."
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "New plane"
Pros: "On time. Good crew and nicer flight."
Cons: "Actually no complaints."
Cons: "They forced me to check my bag in to baggage claim instead of at the gate. The airport staff were extremely rude and disrespectful."

All is good

All is good

Cons: "Disastrous rescheduling"
Pros: "Big selection of movies if you have the United app."
Cons: "Tiny overheads in the 777 so they took carry-ons from at least half the people on the flight. Out of the hamburger by the time they left Economy Plus. Narrow seats, very little seat pitch. I am not quite 5' 10" and I only have a couple inches between my legs and the seatback. Similarly cramped restrooms."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Perfect"
Cons: "Several delays for maintenance and then plane in our gate when we landed"
Pros: "Gusty winds in CID - the crew handled this quite well. Smooth flight."
Cons: "There was no UAL ground crew to greet us when we arrived on time (11PM) in Cedar Rapids. Poor communication."

Pros: "Flight was quick and uneventful."
Cons: "50 minutes wait on the runway in a very small plane. No room for carry ons"

Cons: "This is not how business class sshould be"
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "No movie anymore."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Overbooked, delay in de-planing and getting luggage"
Pros: "It was on time and boarding was very efficient. I was seated near the back, but the middle seat was open. I appreciated the additional space. It was a nice perk for having to sit in the rear of the plane."
Pros: "The crew was nice, quick check ins and boarding. They were very accommodating during the flight."
Cons: "Although it was breakfast, not everyone wants sausage or the other option of fruit and yogurt. Meals should be offered in the literature provided by time, as in reality, if you're not going to sever the expansive US menu throughout the day. I was unable to order a salad at 9 am, regardless of being starving. Also I'm 5'1, there isn't enough leg room. Power outlets should not be a first class luxury, that is rediculous. We all need to charge our devices. TV should not come as an extra charge."
Pros: "I like the price and the time of the flight. Thank you"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "I liked that it was a fast flight arrived ahead of schedule."
Cons: "Seating was crowded."
Pros: "On time Nice crew No complaints"
Cons: "Pure sugar snack"
Cons: "That I never made it to Dallas and so lost my job. Thanks to unitrd."
Pros: "The room was very nice. The bed was super comfy. Best of all was the staff. The breakfast staff was wonaccommodating"
Cons: "I had flown from Honolulu to Denver arriving at 6:30 am this morning having paid $25 for a checked bag. So had to get luggage and turn right around to check-in for Denver to Cedar Rapids and pay another $25 with the same airline because I wasn't able to check all the way through! So I feel I was charged double"
Cons: "Severe delays. Disorganized boarding procedures. No internet."
Pros: "Smooth boarding. Arrived at designated time"
Cons: "Really only a snack pack and water."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Departing flight was delayed, United could not get me to Richmond before 5 pm. Not acceptable. They had to book me on another airline. Never took the united flights."
Pros: "Great plane! Big, quiet, fast, comfy"
Cons: "They cancelled my return flight when I rebooked through united online."
Cons: "My trip was for my dad's quadruple bypass surgery and the date was changed. I was told by Price Line I would need to pay $400 as fee to change my trip. I received your email so I contacted United directly and they said there was a $200 fee which could be reimbursed since it was a medical situation."
Pros: "The flight was delayed for who knows what reason and after many it's gonna be right here! It took an hour and therefore delayed my arrival to my final destination 6 hours!!!"
Pros: "It was a good flight, short but good."
Cons: "Overall horrible experience round trip. Issues with the planes caused delays leaving and caused my flight home to be cancelled. Flew American home. Will never fly Intied again. EVER!"
Cons: "Ok for a short flight"
Pros: "Horrible"
Pros: "The boarding was quick and efficient. The crew was super friendly."
Cons: "The plane is old. It lacks entertainment amenities. Bolt Bus and Grayhound are luxurious in comparison to this United plane."
Pros: "I had a comfortable flight it was on time the people were congenial everything was good."
Cons: "Kayak did not notify me 24 hours in advance for my flight itinerary. I was a little disappointed in this."
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "My flight was delayed twice on both the trip out and the return. It's not such a bit deal for a longer flight, but when the flight is barely more than an hour and it's delayed for an hour each time it really starts to negate the point of flying instead of driving when you factor in the airport time."
Pros: "Patient flight crew"
Cons: "Waited for CFO for 20 min past departure time and there were 3 CFO onboard in general seating"
Pros: "Everything about this flight was satisfactory."
Cons: "Having to pay a baggage fee for the one bag I checked; lack of seat/leg room."
Cons: "The snack offering was not appealing. I understand nut allergy sensitivities but the option was poorly decided."
Pros: "Everything was great we just had to sit for mechanical issues. Announcing ETAs is crucial for those of us getting picked up"
Pros: "Very nice that my husband and I were upgraded to first class on this short flight. It was a short flight but we were very comfortable for that time."
Cons: "I'm very upset I left an item in the overhead bin and had customer service call over as soon as we realized, but they said it wasn't there. There's no way, it had to be there and they didn't look very hard. I submitted a claim and they still haven't found it."
Cons: "No beverage service, glass of room temp water, no ice"
Pros: "This was one of the top 5 worst flights. I have over 150k of miles logged. I will do my best to NEVER fly United again."
Pros: "I was in a wheel chair and the crew in the airport made my transitiins within the airport very easy"
Cons: "."
Pros: "very nice flight attendant. Very helpful to have my son and I sit together. Gave me a cup of coffee when i asked. very friendly as well."
Cons: "The original flight was cancelled"
Cons: "United is a horrible excuse for a company. 3 mechanical delays ultmately causing us to miss a wedding which was the reason for our trip. A 5 hour delay out and an overnight delay in the way home. We slept on the floor in the airport- one thing for us but disgusting to see United allowed this for elderly and families with toddlers and babies. The third mechanical delay occurred after we were finally bored and on the runway and they wouldn't let us deplane. Never have I been so terrified to fly."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Dad services they don't care about the passengers"
Pros: "Quick load and exit"
Cons: "Small plane. Dozens of bags taken in jetway so a long wait for delivery. Rough ride throughout"
Pros: "They were on time."
Cons: "The cabin temperature never went below 80 degrees. Seats were very, very small. Especially when seated by a 300 lb person"

We waited for bags in Tampa airport for 2 hours. Also, no food or even water. Not going on it again

Pros: "Nothing. Frontier canceled the flight."
Cons: "Have an on time flight."
Cons: "Frontier seems to always have friendly staff"
Pros: "Original price but they get you with add ins"
Cons: "Price flights inclusive and quit playing games with people"
Pros: "The crew was good . Flight was efficient ."
Cons: "The extra charges that kept being added on was frustrating ...the one way direct started out at 63$ and ended up being 164$"
Cons: "Flight was delayed several times"
Cons: "Waited too long for bags at baggage claim."
Cons: "It’s was delayed 3 hours in buffalo ."
Pros: "They informed us about 5 hours in advance there was a delay."
Cons: "The flight was very late. They gave me a voucher for $50 as a consolation, but it is only on purchasing a new ticket within 90 days, not very helpful. Since they nickel and dime you for seat selection, checked bags etc, it would be nice to at least use the voucher for seat selection on my return trip."
Pros: "Nothing. Absolutely nothing. I mean I got where I was going and didn’t die, but that’s about the extent of the positive things I have to say."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats, no beverage service. Up charge for literally everything, carry on’s were charged, as much as checking bags. I’ll be avoiding frontier like the plague in the future."
Pros: "Flight was on time and boarding was smooth. The crew was great!"
Pros: "3 hours delay"
Cons: "No referment"
Pros: "The flight was clean and nice we enjoy crew they are friendly I had sugar was down and she give me orange juice very fast thanks for that"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Seats are beyond uncomfortable, sat in someone's gum, crew was rude, food was horrible and beyond tiny and expired, bathrooms were completely trashed, worst flight so far"
Pros: "The price was cheap, but the cost was great."
Cons: "The very 1st words I heard out of the mouth from the very 1st frontier employee I met was "this is going to be a bad day". When they checked my bag they never said thank you, for us flying with frontier. When boarding, the "bad day" employee treated the customers as if they were cattle. Not one stewardess smile the entire flight. And when I asked to stretch after using the facilities only 1 time during the 4 hour flight, I was told (in a very sarcastic voice) "as long as you don't come into our area!" Followed by a faded whisper of "shiiiiiiit". All this, plus a 3 hour delay. What more could you ask for? Next time, I'll pay a little more for the customer service."
Pros: "Second flight in a row that had been delayed"
Cons: "Flight was uncomfortable"
Pros: "Arrived early"
Pros: "The direct flight ."
Cons: "Waiting in the same line for bag drop off with people that did not use the Kiosk. The restrictions on times to check in and when the last bags could be dropped off. I prefer to arrive early and go through the process before most people arrive. There should be a bag drop off line separate from the general line. The trays on the plane were too small for me to work. The space between the rows was too restricted to open my lap top."
Pros: "Everything ran smooth and the crew was very nice"
Cons: "I didn’t like all food and drink was for purchase"
Pros: "price and non-stop flight"
Cons: "The flight was 60+ minutes late, due to another plane sitting on the runway. The other plane kept passengers sitting on the tarmac for over an hour. We were told the plane had mechanical problems. The waiting area was so crowded with people it was people standing all over the place...it turned out that 2 flights full of people were waiting there. When we finally boarded, the plane had to be refueled and the plane had to be started up by being jumped or something because one motor was not working normallly; this was a bit frightening. Staff was not even smiling, or even comforting when we boarded. Brief apology by pilot."
Pros: "Flight was great. Checkin etc was great"
Pros: "The service was Ok, but our flight was 4 hours delayed and it wasn't mechanical or weather related delay, the airline made a scheduling error, we almost missed our car rental and we didn't get to our destination til really late at night when it should been there in the daytime. Overall, won't fly with them again"
Pros: "Direct floght for the route with really no competition for the same airports and similar times. Checkin staff was courteous, embarking was swift, flight on time, safe, no issues."
Cons: "No quick bag drop off option, very slow to be processed. Tons of fees, they really add up and if you pay the extras it can easily be more expensive than the competitors. Super rude and careless flight attendant. Asked for bathroom permission for my 3-year-old once we were at full altitude and she denied. Sure enough 2 minutes later an adult just went for it. Then as the seatbelt sign was off she was blocking the aisle with the trolley. When I asked kindly to make room, she didn’t even acknowledge that she heard my request... she did, eventually, without even looking at me. Also very slow to get the stroller and a bit slow to get the baggage but these latter issues may be airport dependent."
Pros: "I thought that everything went fine except for the weather delays but I know that is not the fault of the airline."
Pros: "I feel this airline does an excellent job boarding at the beginning and end of the flight."
Cons: "Bags took a long time to be delivered."
Pros: "I'm retired.I'll seriously consider driving. The whole airport/airline industry is in trouble."
Cons: "Very friendly"
Pros: "being on time"
Cons: "had to pay for snacks and pop, etc Free would be nicer."
Cons: "45 dollar for carry on made me feel like I was getting screwed!"
Pros: "Dislike ,"
Cons: "Dirty plane, staff not so compassionate. Crew didn't even clean the plane before the boarding. Flight delayed by 45 minutes."
Pros: "It was everything I expected from a no frills airline. The plane we were on was newer even in the back of the plane the leg room wasn't bad. I'm 5'9 just for a reference."
Cons: "The only thing that was a problem you can't check in on your ipad. Being on vacation I didn't have a laptop with me or easy access to one. If I didn't check in before getting to the airport I didn't want to pay any extra for my bags than I needed to."
Pros: "direct flight"
Cons: "All the EXTRA fees. Will likely fly other airlines moving forward. SUPER NARROW SEATS! No wifi."
Pros: "The price is extremely attractive and Frontier was non stop! Personal carry on item is free and the size was really generous. PLUS they have an excellent credit card rewards program!"
Cons: "I wasn't expecting the seats to not recline at all unless you purchase a stretch seat. I had the assumption they would still recline the typical amount. I don't like that you have to pay for your seat choice after the flight is already paid for."
Pros: "I loved all the room I had, and how polite and expedient the crew were. There was no wasted time."
Cons: "I was sat next to a newborn baby -- and I paid extra for that seat. Felt like that wasn't worth it."
Cons: "WAITED ON TARMAC ON ARRIVAL IN DENVER 1 HOUR AND WAITED 45 MINUTES AT DENVER FOR THE PLANE TO ARRIVE AND 1 HR IN DENVER FOR THE LUGGAGE TO BE LOADED ON THE PLANE...EVEN THOUGH THE LUGGAGE WAS ON THE CARTS SITTING NEXT TO THE PLANE WAITING TO BE LOADED ONTO THE PLANE."
Cons: "Sitting on tarmac for hour and a half with no time of getting off rhe plane os inhumane treatment."
Cons: "Hidden Fees, thankfully we could afford the extra $20/seat. On the first leg of the flight it was 100 degrees in the cabin, and there were NO beverages available at all. We were told there would be a 5 minute wait on the tarmac before unloading...we've been here for 45 minutes with no end in sight."
Cons: "Seats dont move...why do first 3 rows have seats that recline?"
Cons: "Took over 30 minutes to check a bag."
Pros: "I arrived at my destination safely."
Cons: "1. Charged me for baggage, carry on, and seat assignment. Seriously?! 2. Flight was over an hour late. 3. No TSA Pre-Check (I get it EVERY time I fly Delta) I have Silver Medallion status on Delta but when I needed an inexpensive one-way flight to Des Moines, Frontier had a great price so I thought. I bought the ticket but then when checking in for the flight online, the expenses started mounting fast. Delta never charges me for 1 checked bag and I can bring 2 carry-one for free. I never pay for more legroom either. Not the case on Frontier. By the time you nickel and dimed me to death I could have saved time, money, and aggravation by staying on Delta. Thanks for the lesson though. I've flown United, American and Delta almost exclusively over the past 20 years and I have always considered all airlines were basically the same. You proved that theory wrong."
Pros: "Visiting with them"
Cons: "Waiting 3 hours"
Pros: "Great professional service by ALL employees"
Cons: "Only thing that left me questioning was boarding order. I was zone 4 and by that time most passengers were seated. My seat was an A by window and 2 passengers had to get back up for me."
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "Flight staff were wonderful about making up time and doing what they could to make things better"
Cons: "Flight was delayed an hour due to traffic control and the airline wouldn't give us an estimation of when we would leave - I understand that it was up to traffic control but having flown I knew it would easily be an extra hour since the last flight hadn't made it to the gate. Once we arrived we learned only four bags made it for the entire flight. Overall it was a cheap flight but you had to pay handsomely for bags and food/beverages"
Pros: "There's was nothing good about this flight"
Cons: "Everything"
