Pros: "Burbank airport was awesome"
Cons: "More snacks!"
Cons: "The entertainment Wi-Fi didn’t work well"

Pros: "Great crew, smooth landing."
Cons: "The “Mediterranean tapas” meal is basically a tiny tiny school lunch, minus the comfort of PB&J. Want dried apricots? You get FOUR. All in all not too bad though. The entertainment/WiFi system is limiting- maybe REMIND us to bring headphones? And no WiFi unless you have T-Mobile? Tease."

Cons: "Space was tight. Would’ve liked a little more room"
Cons: "I’m a disabled veteran I was requested to have a wheelchair in Houston when I arrived there was none and I walked in while across that huge airport on foot and a large amount of pain to go to the baggage claim and nobody knew anything or soon any responsibility"
Cons: "Baggage claim terminal wasn’t announced. Everyone went to the wrong place."
Cons: "Delayed flight"
Cons: "Since I missed My connecting flight, because of their first plane being delayed, they decided to put me on a flight with Delta. While I appreciate them finding me a way to get to Houston, my first class ticket then became a coach ticket where I had to sit in the middle seat of a completely full airplane."

Pros: "Great quick flight. Plenty of room"
Pros: "The flight crew was friendly"

Cons: "Cramped seats"
Pros: "Managed to board quickly and leave early!"

Pros: "Very friendly and helpful staff"
Pros: "Visited customer service and they went above and beyond. Safe, easy flight. Pilots were informative."

Pros: "I always fly with Alaska Airlines when I need to go to LA. Fantastic flight attendants and good services."

Pros: "Quick, easy, clean"
Pros: "My seat was great with good leg room - plus no one in the center seat. We also got into Houston 30 minutes early...bonus."
Cons: "A red-eye flight with lots and lots of crying babies. Thank god for good headphones and earbuds!"
Pros: "The Seattle airport and staff was great! There were employees at every station helping everyone with a smile! The difference from our flight home to Houston was remarkable. Thank you SeaTac."
Pros: "The staff were great and helpful."
Cons: "I am a small woman but your seats are getting smaller and leg room is less. This leads me to believe that the "people" actually running this airline have little interest for those of us who have to travel in coach? Making money is the most important thing to these people who will always travel in private jets or first class. Congratulations to all. You are winning.

Pros: "Great staff on the plane- very impressed flying Alaska Airlines for the first time!"
Pros: "Crew and boarding overall okay. Friendly and helpful. I give entertainment a one star only because I didn't use but I do like the outlet behind seats and the entertainment accessibility if I wanted it."

Cons: "Internet wasn't working. But, waddya gonna do? Probably not their fault."
Pros: "Awesome flight attendants! I really like that you guys announce when we've hit cruising altitude and that the Pilots give us an idea about how the flight is going to go; bumpy, smooth, when/if to expect turbulence. Thank you!"
Pros: "Economy is economy, so there's nothing to complain about :)"
Pros: "Alaska is my first choice between Burbank and Seattle but I go all the way thru to Bellingham and the trip between Seattle and Bellingham costs more than the first leg so I generally take a bus to Bellingham from Seattle. Wishing that last leg could become more affordable."
Cons: "Taking the bus from Seattle to Bellingham but the price differential is equal to another flight to Los Angeles so Seattle so I can't justify the cost."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Wifi was horrible. The first time I purchased it, the signal was great on my flight from Seattle to Houston. However my return flight to Seattle the wifi barely worked."
Cons: "The check in process for Delta was a chaotic mess. There was no one to assist passengers, lines were crazy long. I overheard so many people complaining about missing flights and they could not get any help. I also think the amount Delta charges for luggage was insane."
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "On time boarding and departure"
Pros: "Not one of my good experiences with Delta. Two hours delay in the flight"

Pros: "Got to Houston on time"

Cons: "Wifi was not working"
Pros: "Awesome Customer Service"
Pros: "The movies were entertaining"
Pros: "The seats were very comfortable even though legroom was limited in the basic cabin."
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "Couldn’t hear/understand the pilot"
Cons: "Old plane, long delay, sketchy WiFi."
Pros: "Excellent hospitality I asked for a cup of coffee at an odd time, the attendant went out of his way to brew fresh pot and served me, instead of just saying "Sorry sir, we don't have any coffee at this time....""
Pros: "Excellent support from all the Delta associaties"
Pros: "Friendliness of flight attendants"
Cons: "I wasn't awake long enough to find fault"
Pros: "Everyone was very courteous, the plane took off on schedule and arrived at our destination early. Also got a complimentary upgrade to Comfort Plus."
Cons: "Ticket price was a bit much, the seats and aisle inside the plane are only made for skinny people. Aisle was barely longer across than my foot, and the guy next to me was a bit bigger than average, leaving me to have to scrunch in my seat the whole flight. Lots of elbows, butts and hips knocking into my shoulders as people boarded."
Pros: "The crew was good"
Cons: "The flight was incredibly uncomfortable. The Delta team in Houston was not very pleasant."
Cons: "My seat ,the distance to get to the gate, The wheelchair l No window The distance I had it walk to get to my seat I was told this was the row behind the break after the exit row. I was not I’ve been with you before and have not any of these problems No more"
Pros: "Food and service was nice"
Cons: "Very long route to my final destination"
Pros: "Crew was fantastic and very helpful."
Cons: "Not sure who was in charge of loading the plane with food for purchase, but they forgot it all entirely. The crew was kind enough to give extra snacks. Kinda curious how you forgot to load a plane with food for purchase and how did the crew not notice in advance? I would think that is one of their checks of the cabin. Not mention who ever signed off saying they filled the plane with food for purchase lied. Very frustrating not only for the crew but for the passengers."
Cons: "Stood by as people blocked aisle during boarding, making snide comments. Instead, the two should have assisted & encouraged the passengers to step out of the aisle & move along. Was very cold hit call light fir blanket. No response for 10 min so went to the bs k of plane where the crew was chatting & eating. When I asked about blanket, they didn’t look fir any & said they didn’t have any unopened. Upon leaving big plane, I saw a stack of about 5 packaged blankets in the front. Just rude & lazy older crew. Time for a different job fir them"
Pros: "Eventually made it home. At 1am, when it should have been 1130pm."
Cons: "I couldn’t watch a movie and I couldn’t fall asleep because the the person in front of me had a light on."
Pros: "Very quick boarding process. There was no entertainment so I couldn't rate that."
Cons: "There should be a N/A option if there is no entertainment available."
Pros: "CVG isn't a huge airport, but it has a good amount of things to keep you entertained/well fed."
Cons: "CVG security line isn't terrible, but there seemingly is ALWAYS a decent wait. When a flight is full, like this one, it's never very comfortable – even a short flight."
Cons: "1 hour delay, no explanation, no weather problems, late for my meeting in Houston."
Pros: "Traveling mid day and on Tuesday.....it’s my new favorite!"
Pros: "Not much to like."
Cons: "our connecting flight was delayed 12 hours. The person who checked us in for the flight to Idaho falls checked our baggage for our return flight home, which was an entire week later. So our baggage got sent back to our starting destination and not Idaho falls"
Pros: "The gate agent and cabin crew handled passenger's misery with friendly grace and professionalism. Also, it was an old plane and so the seats, even in coach, were comfortable."
Cons: "Plane was around 45 minutes late in arriving at our Minneapolis gate. Flight was further delayed by something (unspecified) being "frozen." WORST part was that the temperature in the seating area at the gate was horribly cold. Departing passengers at a neighboring gate were bound for Fargo and sat with their parkas on and with parka hoods up. We Houston-bound had packed our coats & boots and were shivering. Then when we finally boarded the crew announced that the plane's water system was broken and so we would have no hot coffee or hot tea or hot anything. No water, also and obviously, in the restroom sink. But sani-wipes were provided in the sink basin."
Pros: "Quick flight, great landing and takeoff."
Cons: "Everything was great today."
Pros: "I got off the flight at out side,but i forgot to carried my small bag .and then the Crew returned me the bag very soon.they were very kind,thank you very much."
Pros: "Excellent Detroit crew"
Pros: "The flight being on time, friendly staff, clean aircraft.i"

Pros: "Could not use the bathroom"
Cons: "Delayed by an hour!"
Cons: "Late taking off, and then unable to get to gate on arrival"
Pros: "Service was excellent. The food was great. The in-flight entertainment was a impressive and a life saver. We will fly Delta again."
Cons: "Nothing negative to say."
Cons: "The flight from Las Vegas was delayed for a very long time, and then diverted to Huntsville, Alabama, because of weather in Atlanta. I understand that was beyond Delta's control, except for the fact that its Atlanta hub is grossly overused. But my connecting flight in Atlanta was canceled, and its "dedicated" phone line to re-book the flight was completely unresponsive. The employees in Atlanta were, as they usually are, surly, and myself and fellow passengers had to wait on line for hours in the wee hours of the morning to be re-booked. Oh, and Delta lost my suitcase in Las Vegas, with all my clothes and a business file, and it has not been located."
Cons: "Agents at the ticketing countet were the rudest i have ever encountered in my years of flying. Had a problem and when i asked for their assistance was given the Delta 800 number and told to call and they walked off. When i called it was a 2 hour wait for an agent. Thank goodness for their app as i was able to.change my flight with the My Delta app. Also they had overbooked the flight and rather than giving assurance to people just told us to wait and "line up orderly"."
Pros: "Delta provides the best service I can think of. Even the babies in economy class stopped crying right after they realized they were flying with Delta. :)"
Cons: "I wish they would provide more entertainment options even for shorter flights. Let's all have free internet. Come on, it's 2016. Even for 20-30 mins free internet per flight would be great."
Pros: "Blankets available for all."
Cons: "Problem initially with entertainment system, which was later corrected. No baggage space available close to my seat, even though I was one of the first on board--Sky Priority. I was in last row. A combination of crew bags and onboard equipment along with a couple people on board before me,filled all space above last 3-4 rows. Seats seemed to be even smaller than normal for economy. Entertainment screen too small."
Cons: "I'm Sky Priority and the gate agents were not enforcing zones. They called Diamond and everyone walked in. I went in and saw zone 3 in the line"
Pros: "Every thing except food!"
Cons: "Not enough food provided by airline!"
Pros: "On time smooth flight."
Cons: "Small plane."
"Less noisy children which cannot be helped…"
Pros: "Being a tall guy, I appreciated the extra legroom in first class."
Cons: "The boarding in Burbank was chaotic and caused delays. Resulting in a longer delay to my final destination."
Pros: "Finally got me home"
Cons: "Delayed, no updates,"
Pros: "Boarding process was smooth"
Cons: "Allowed people to deplane while waiting. Sitting on a plane during a two + hour delay is the stupidest thing ever."
Pros: "Great crew, very efficient"
Pros: "They were nice. They listened"
Cons: "No screaming children"
Pros: "All employees were awesome."
Cons: "I have no complaints."
Pros: "Average crew. The seat became comfortable after complaining that the one I requested was not noted on passenger request or should I say begging for the request."
Cons: "Listen to the passenger."
Pros: "Boarding was quick"
Cons: "Power in the airplane to charge phones. A form of entertainment would have been nice"
Pros: "The connecting BA flight from Houston to LHR was an old 747 and my broken window blind didn’t go down. The worst part was I paid for a bulkhead seat and once we got on the plane it turned out the configuration was different and the seat was not bulkhead."
Cons: "Accurate configuration. A more modern plane."
Cons: "The crew was not friendly. Rude tone."
Pros: "Only thing that was good was tail wind."
Cons: "The plane was so small and tight. And they sat me next to 260lbs x football player in this tiny plane. Not really your fault but a plane that size is just too small esp when your neighbor is double your size."
Pros: "Everything was good. Bear in mind flight was under 1 hour and I slept the whole time."
Cons: "Overall terrible experience, flight attendant was extremely rude when i asked if they were offering sparkiling wine. Flight was delayed due to overbooking on american. Turbulence was horrible the entire flight. The in flight entertainment was unavailable for some reason."
Cons: "My original flight was delayed then we had to spend the night in Dallas."
Cons: "No legroom in 17 E"
Pros: "Crew members. After a long time I got to see some friendly cabin crew members."
Cons: "Boarding was little delayed. But that's alright."
Cons: "I could not get the Wi-Fi to work even though I paid for 24 hours of it there was a different Wi-Fi Carrier on this flight than the flight from Munich to Philadelphia, he did not recognize me and even the free shows I could not get to work it had 3 different site said it told me the log in to in none of them work on my cell."
Pros: "Once aboard, LATAM is actually quite impressive. The logistical part of the company is horrendous, but the service onboard is exemplar."
Cons: "LATAM changed my itinerary without my authorization and despite my clear verbal directions to NOT change it. The airline took directions from a corrupt official with the Colombian immigration office and cancelled my return flights. I was forced to purchase an additional ticket, travel on and separate flight from my wife and children. I then had to spend several hours waiting to resolve the case in person. The customer service at LATAM is a joke. If I'd received this treatment in the United States, I would have filed a lawsuit for their infringement on my rights and collaboration with the discriminatory practices of the Colombian immigration office in Bogota."
Pros: "Fast all to boarding and everything"
Cons: "No comment"
Pros: "Flight was smooth"
Cons: "This was my final connection from a long flight, we did a line to check in and get our boarding passes, when we got to the gate I found out I didn’t have a seat number asigned but husband did, they gave me one there but of course it was not next to my husband, it was the last seat available at the end next to restroom. The smell coming out from the it was so disgusting even before th first person went in, they should do something to improve the cleaness in the restroom between flights. It would probably take them 30 more minutes to do so, and I would not mind waiting for it even if this was my final flight after 15+ hours."
Cons: "AA lost put my checked baggage onto a different flight during my layover in Philly to my final destination. After losing my baggage, it took them over 24 hours to return it to me, telling me that it would only be "another hour" till they would deliver it to my house. No airline is perfect, but I don't like being lied to about my baggage not being transferred properly to my final flight, nor do appreciate how they kept giving me vague estimates and round-a-bout answers about my checked bag which they lost in the first place. If I can help it, I will never fly with American Airlines again; they have lost my business!"
Pros: "Being able to check flight progress while in the air."
Cons: "We did not appreciate the game of needing to pay for seat selection after having already paid for tickets. We were not provided with TSA-PRE despite providing our known traveler numbers in advance. Boarding selection protocol seemed opaque, complex, and geared towards inviting us to pay extra for priority boarding. Before boarding the plane, we were not able to find out whether any food would be served and the extent of what might be provided. After getting on board, we were offered the chance to buy food. The complementary food was a cookie and a few ounces of soda or juice. Movies were available, but not headphones for listening to them. Leg space under the seat in front of us was reduced to make room for life vests."
Pros: "It was a good flight"
Cons: "Delayed, old aircraft, no food, no entertainment"
Cons: "Delayed 2hrs"
Cons: "The flight was delayed and my luggage is coming in the later flight. I need some form of consolation for this pathetic service."
Pros: "Everything about the flight"
Cons: "I'm not a large man. I shouldn't need to fold my arms to keep from bumping into and intruding on my neighbors."
Pros: "Timely and comfortable flight!"
Cons: "Missed flight"
Cons: "Flight delayed"
Cons: "Boarding was delayed 30 minutes, with no explanation. Upon arrival, another airplane was in our gate, resulting in an additional 30 minute wait, buckled in my seat on the tarmac."
Pros: "I booked a codeshare ticket through Alaska Airlines reward program. I was worried I'd be shafted when it came to seats. Not so. I had the row to myself on both flights and just 2 rows shy of first class! Very impressed."
Pros: "It was a small plane so I didn't expect much. The attendants were a little disconnected for it being a three hour flight."
Cons: "When the flight was on time, we learned it was overbooked. Agents stated that if people would not willingly accept their offer to fly at a later time random people would be denied boarding. This was a stressful element as there was no other flight that could make me arrive on time. Plus, threatening to deny boarding to paying customers for airline related overbooking does not seem like a fair or good business practice. Then there were mechanical issue with the plane. After waiting over an hour for repairs they realized they needed a new air craft. This further delayed the flight. Not only was the flight extremely delayed at this pint but throughout the waiting time we were given very little information and were constantly told they couldn't give us an approximate time of departure. This was extremely rude and makes the experience of dealing with a delay even worse. I would suggest giving us more information about what is happening. Saying we don't know when the flight will leave is just unacceptable. To make matters even worse after we were finally boarded we had to wait an additional 40 minutes sitting inside the plane while they boarded refreshments! I know there are delays in flights but this same thing happened to my flight on my way to Paris and it caused me to miss my international connection and had to be re-routed."
Cons: "Average airline compared to Singapore & MZ airlines"
Pros: "Poor service They had a severely overweight person sitting next to me. She was struggling putting on her seat belt for a few minutes. I was very uncomfortable in my seat. The flight attendant was walking around withh seat belt extenders ; why are you accommodating severely overweight customers at the expense of others?"
Pros: "Staff was friendly"
Cons: "Cabin was cold and no blankets available."
Pros: "Nothing exceptional"
Cons: "Change fees are ludicrous. Also flight was late."
Pros: "No much"
Cons: "What poor services all round. The check in staff where on the phone or talk to themselves. No one even spoke to me at checkin. Then the boarding staff were so rude, they act like they own the plane and they are god. They would not answer anyone questions and just pointed at the screen. The airplane staff hello at least. But the food very so bad, even easyjet has better food. Also their understanding for the english was so poor but the air stewardess told me " we speak American" !!!!"
Pros: "Everything, it was my first time flying and I actually really enjoyed it! I'd be looking Forward to flying with this airline again!"
Pros: "I was traveling with a pet and they were very kind and helpful to me."
Pros: "The seats in this flight were quite roomy."
Cons: "Delayed and canceled flights with no apologies or explanations, rude crews who scoffed at complaints or requests of other passengers, lost baggage that took hours to recover, again without apology....I would rather pay a bit more than fly with American again, at least until these memories fade a bit."
Cons: "When I booked my flight, I used Kayac like I always have in the past. To begin with, I selected several flights that were listed, only to have it tell me that this flight is no longer offered, which I assume is engineered to get me to select a more expensive flight. Once I finally found a flight that was still available, I selected it and began the process of providing information and selecting seat assignments. On 2 of the 4 legs of the round trip, there were no more seats available except for upgrade seats, which resulted in an extra $100.00+ in charges. Then when I finished the transaction, I noticed an extra $200.00 charge added. End result was that I ended up paying over double what I would normally pay for this same round trip that I have made many many times. I feel, no I know, that some customer relations person will look at this comment and reply with a pre-generated response apologizing and hoping I have a better experience in the future and thank me for using Kayac. Big companies like yours look at one customer as no big deal. I'm a Physician and have the ability to reach out to multitudes. I'm going to make it my mission in life to reach out to as many people as I can through word of mouth, signs in my office, Internet and social media to let them know about the deplorable practices of your company."
Cons: "Paying extra for seating"
Cons: "The people were rude and made us stay on the plane an hour and a half after we landed."
Pros: "Other passengers trying to make light of hectic situation."
Cons: "Delayed because crew was not able to get to the gate in time. Once they arrived they got things moving but passengers were already flustered and the airline stewards also seemed flustered, their attempts and multiple announcements to move people faster did not help and actually made things move slower..."
"90 min delay. No reason. Missed 2 flight from IAH to SFO. Had to spend night on my own money. No lounge open for early morning"
"There was no snack or anything but drink."
"Awful terrible flight attendants with no empathy."
Pros: "The crew was professional."
Pros: "Amazing crew!"
Cons: "Keep traveler's updated on delays."
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "More room on plane. Seats are very close together"
Pros: "The space in economy plus. But the crew making sure we had room due to social distancing the best they could with what space they had to work with on the plane."
Pros: "MUCH BETTER experience than our American Airlines flight when we left last week. More friendly people."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and professional. The flight arrived early and that was great."
Cons: "It was a bit overcrowded and the internet was a bit spotty"
Pros: "I like that I was finally able to come home"
Cons: "The United Airlines reps could have shown some empathy to the passengers who were delayed. The arline knew we had connecting flights and could've alerted the other flight that we were there and to wait on us. The connecting flight was scheduled to leave at 9:50. I arrived at the gate at 9:49 only to find that the flight had not only boarded but had already left. The reps at the counter showed no level of empathy and acted put out when asked to provide transportation to the reassigned gate. Lastly, the flight could've offered something more than a $10 food voucher, especially since the majority of the food in the airport is greater than $10."
Pros: "Great value"
Cons: "The seats weren't very comfortable, but I could make due."
Cons: "there was no flight. pay attention, kayak."
Cons: "The gate agents did nothing to combat the gate lice that lined up in the "boarding" lane long before their boarding group was called. I almost missed my boarding group (which would have resulted in my carry-on being gate-checked all the way home) because the line was 40-deep. Only after asking the first person in line did I realize that the people lined up for "Boarding Group 3" were actually all Boarding Group 4. My flight didn't have working AC, and my seat didn't recline. I was burning up the whole time, and forced to sit at an unnaturally upright angle for the entirety of the 3.5 hour flight. I've never had a good experience with United. I will not be flying with them again."
Pros: "Helpful crew and loads of space on bulkhead with bassinet (had to pay extra for the seats though but worth it when travelling with five month old)."
Cons: "Misinformed about luggage being checked all the way to Auckland - like other US airports all luggage must be collected and handed over again for onward journeys. Also travel cot was lost in transit."
Pros: "Staff was all friendly and exhibited positive and helpful attitudes. I also think the price and route was an excellent deal for this flight. It was actually such a good deal, it’s the main reason I even went."
Cons: "I think the baggage restrictions thing is really slimey and a shameful scam. I actually wouldn’t have minded paying around $50 more for my ticket and hand the bag included than be misled into thinking I could take luggage and finding out after it’s too late that I have to pay for my luggage. I think it’s a really sleazy business tactic (akin to resort fees). Fortunately for me however, I don’t travel with luggage so it doesn’t directly affect me. Still think it’s. Shitty way to do business though."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Cabin AirConditioning fault. Air bridge fault all delayed flights from Fort Lauderdale to San Antonio"
Pros: "United seems to have simplified how it separates the boarding groups, so getting on the plane was well organized. The 787 aircraft was spacious and comfortable, which seems to put both passengers and crew in a good mood. Lots of entertainment options were available, so the three hour flight flew by. And we arrived early! A great experience on United."
Pros: "Landed early"
Cons: "No wifi or substantial snacks/dinner. Paid for bag"
Cons: "Fellow passengers; too many howling kids with clueless parents"
Pros: "The journey was smooth"
Pros: "Boarding and checking in was great.."
Cons: "there where some issues with the airplane from the beginning we were inform that the seat belt and cigarette icons lights were no working . but then they have to call technicians to do a recheck on the plane so there more issues no just about the lights we have to stay in the plane until fixed some people lost their connection flights. the terminal where we landed was a long walk to customs then pick up bags and transport to the next terminal no enough time to eat between flights. to stressful ."
Cons: "My friend and I have taken our hiking packs to Alaska, California, Washington, and all along the East coast. Never have we been asked to check our packs. I was mostly surprised, at first. Once I was seated a man in front of me had his hiking pack and two ukuleles in their cases, neither of which could fit under his seat. That's when I became frustrated. O This plane sucks: our knees were slammed into the seat in front of us because the chairs are so close together. No USB plugs. Plane was dirty, scuff marks on the wall and ceiling. There was paper in the pouch that looked like a mouse had chewed on it."
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 space of the plane since I volunteered to be at the emergency door I felt comfortable..."
Cons: "Not giving me my seat number because my ticket was not a standby ticket and I seem to think that the agent thought that I was on standby but I have to go to him several time to make him understand that my ticket had a confirmation number and I did a reserve and I needed a seat number it was not on standby when he checked it he said okay and I also explained to him that I was a military personnel ... The agent should treat us with respect you should have gave me a better information and just throw me away then going back to him several times for the correct solution..."
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "New looking plane but the TVs behind all the chairs were locked without a credit card. The new chairs looked great until you sat in them. I'm 5'10" and my knees were already brushing up against the seatback in front of me. If you push the recline button on the armrest, the chair doesn't go back (of course it doesn't, the person's legs behind me are probably up against my chair anyway). Multiple people around me were also asking around if the chairs recline. I have a mild back injury and sitting up at 90 degrees the entire way was very uncomfortable."
Pros: "The ticket staff. The only thing about the Harlingen airport is that it needs more than a couple of exray machines ....the Valley is woefully behind in staff training and technology. It took forever to get through the short lines...it was too long of a wait."
Cons: "The way that a couple of young AA men who were biligirent, combative and vulgar upset about their seat assignments. I told one of the young men to stop using vulgarity and no way to treat the lady that was doing her job, she continued treating them with courtesy and they kept mumbling under their breath God knows what. So young and already so bitter. They were towering over her and took a confrontational stance...she finally called security. I would not allowed them on the plane. I commend the young lady there in Harlingen."
Pros: "Finally getting to SEA"
Cons: "The Captain kept lying to the passengers why we were delaid ! Finally after 40 minutes sitting on the ramp he came on and apolized for telling us the wrong information but actually what happened was someone loaded all the luggage in the aft baggage compdartment incorrectly and they had to reload the the bags and move then to the forward compartment This certainty didn't give you a safe feeling knowing there ground crew didn't know ho to load there plane correctly! Another reason not to fly United Airlines! Everett Johnson, Bellevue Wash."
Pros: "Flight attendants were friendly."
Cons: "The most uncomfortable seat I have ever ridden on a flight. My back and posterior were in pain for over a day after the flight. Terrible treatment of passengers to pack a few more people in like cattle. Thinnest seats I have ever seen that felt and looked like hard plastic. This was an Embraer 175 jet...will never fly on one of these again. Had a hard landing in excellent weather. Flew the same route back to Charlotte on an American Airlines A320...these seats were comfortable and the landing was smooth even with a 20mph crosswind."
Pros: "The flight attendants were nice, unlike the people at the ticket and gate counters."
Cons: "My flight was delayed by nearly two hours, causing me to have to miss my connection. Though they knew for hours that the flight would be delayed, they did not have enough people working at the check in counters. There were not that many people in line, but I had to wait more than 20 minutes before being able to speak to someone. The representative informed me that I would have to be rebooked onto a later connection because the delay would cause my to miss my original connecting flight, and when I told her that I needed an earlier time to avoid missing a meeting, she just said "I have nothing earlier." She was barely even apologetic. Then she was unable to print my boarding pass for my connection. I had a 2 hour and 45 minute layover in Houston whereas in my original flight it was 1 hour."
Pros: "Safe landing in windy conditions."
Cons: "Air-con failure delayed departure. No complimentary food or OH. Poor legroom. Nothing"
Cons: "I was warned about booking with this airline but I had to see it for myself before listening to others now I wish I had done just that. First of all, outdated planes, no Tv screens, expensive wifi. How is it only $3 one way and then $5 the other especially after making us wait for 3 hours and 22 minutes extra. Exhausting flights both to Albuquerque from Houston and from Houston to Boston. Poor communication. Poor planning ahead. Very dissatisfied. Going with Jet Blue from now on. They never disappoint, even if there was a delay in flight."
Cons: "Ended up sitting on the tarmac for 30-40 minutes. Many people almost missed or did miss flights."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "Both flights were INCREDIBLY delayed. First, the flight from San Jose was delayed 1.5 hours because they were "waiting for the aircraft." After everybody finally boarded the plane an announcement was made that somehow the luggage crew had damaged the cargo hold, and that everybody would have to deplane. It would take 45 minutes for maintenance crew to arrive to assess the situation. People got up, got their luggage out of the overhead bins, and started moving to the front of the plane. The pilot then came back on the intercom and told everyone they would have to return to their seats. Roughly an hour later we finally took off. It would have been the decent thing to do to AT LEAST offer the passengers something (i.e. comp drinks or snacks), but the cheapskates at United DIDN'T EVEN APOLOGIZE. Multiple people missed their connections. Fast forward to IAH--> SAT. Another late flight. This time, everybody boarded the plane only to be informed that due to a problem with the plane's computer everybody would have to sit on the plane while they "rebooted" its computers. This was done TWICE. UNITED AIRLINES, GET IT TOGETHER. There is a very good reason you are consistently ranked one of the WORST US-flagged carriers, which makes you one of the MOST HATED AIRLINES ON THE PLANET. I really and truly pray that the US airlines and their lobbyists lose their battle to prevent foreign flagged carriers from operating within the US, because you all deserve to go bankrupt."
Pros: "I like everything!!everyone was so nice that it makes you feel so welcome and that you're like in home!!!"
Pros: "Handicapped assistance was great. Our connections at from between flights was 35 minutes. We had to go from terminal B to C by wheelchair for my Dad then by electric cart to get to our next gate. We barely made it. They were boarding when we got to the gate. On our flight to our destination we were given the wrong gate and terminal. We actually were supposed to go from terminal E to B at opposite ends of the airport. We missed our connectio and had to be teschuled 6 hrs later. Then that flight was cancelled and we had to pay for a hotel and missed a whole day of our trip. These connections were paired by United no by individual choice. IAH is a very difficult airport to travel through. I won't fly United again!"
Pros: "The crew was very nice as we got on."
Cons: "As usually United over booked and even though I brought my ticket in advance I some how did not have a seat assigned to me when I checked in. Most of the plane had boarded before I had a ticket in my hand. The agent was rude as she could be because I didn't understand how that's possible for me not to have a seat. I think that it's absolutely ridiculous that it's even possible to over sale a plane since there's obviously only a certain number of seats. I think it's ridiculous that people have to offer up their seat and take another flight, I chose a flight time because that's when I wanted to leave and get to where I was going for a reason. No other industry is allowed to treat their customers this way so why does the airline industry do it? Also there's no tv or movies for us to watch while in a 4 hour flight."
Pros: "Flight was smooth and on board crew was nice and helpful. Flight attendant noticed I came on with a cane and offered to have a wheelchair ride available in the SF airport. Reminding me that it was a large airport. I declined, but she encouraged me to try it and I agreed. She was concerned and very helpful."
Cons: "The plane was a small plane and we had to disembark on the tarmac. There were two attendants with wheelchairs but they didn't have my name so I walked on. The flight attendant called to me and said to wait. One of the attendants came up with a wheelchair and said he would take me. Unfortunately, a steep ramp had to be used to get into the airport building. He asked another worker to help him and all the way up the ramp I had to listen to comments about "good thing they had eaten their Wheaties" and "they were getting a good workout." I know that I am not a small person, but these ongoing comments were rude and insulting. When we got into the gate the attendant told me that he didn't have my name on his list and had to call for permission to take me through the airport. I waited and he came back and said he couldn't take me, but if I could wait someone else could come for me. I had waited enough already and suffered their rude comments, so I said no thanks and walked slowly through the airport. This experience has left me with a bad feeling for the airline and its personnel. I believe their staff could use sensitivity training at the very least!"
Pros: "crew, takeoff, landing and flight were good on each flight. no complaints there."
Cons: "from COS to FLL: first flight was late taking off. connecting flight was on time. this is a bad combination. i was literally seconds from missing my connecting flight, and that was after sprinting from one terminal to another. captain on the first flight announced that takeoff was delayed because they were waiting for flight charts to finish downloading. really? WELL THEN GET THERE 20 MINUTES EARLIER AND BE PREPARED TO LEAVE *ON TIME* SO THAT PASSENGERS DON'T MISS (OR NEARLY MISS) THEIR CONNECTIONS!!!"
Pros: "The staff was very friendly and accommodating"
Cons: "There was some sort of mix up with seat assignments two guys had the same seat assignment. The very nice gentleman who was sitting in my seat due this stood and allowed me to have my seat as it was on the isle and I was in boarding group 5 and my seat was all the way at the end by the bathrooms and needed to be able to stretch my legs into the isle. There was absolutely no leg room what so ever. The dude next to me spent the entire trip jabbing me in the side with his elbow so that he could access what little space I did have. I was unable to move my legs because every two seconds the entire plane was trekking to the back to use the bathroom, because while there was a third bathroom on the plane towards the front, for whatever reason nobody seemed to be using it."
Cons: "I wanted to get on the earlier flight so after checking in I proceeded to the gate to speak with the gate agent about getting on the earlier 11:55 flight. She was no where to be found. Other members of my party that I had traveled with appeared and said they got on the earlier flight because they were looking for people to switch and offering it down stairs where you initially checked in. No body had offered it to me which infuriates me because now I could not go back downstairs through security. I was stuck upstairs waiting for someone in charge to appear. The gate agent arrived 1 minutes before the flight was supposed to board. She told me that it was too late to switch flights and that it should have been done down stairs when I initially checked in. She said they were looking for people which really irked me because no one had offered it to me. She then told me that she gave me the wrong bag tag and switched it out for the correct one. The air port was hot, crowded and smelly. The plane ride was over all okay. We did not start boarding on time (my tickecg said boarding would begin at 12 and we didn't start until about 12:45) and we left a few minutes late. Other than that I was grateful there was a TV on the plane"
Pros: "Everything really was superb. Food rated low because of a measly biscuit on a 6 hour flight. Entertainment rated low because I even had to pay to gain access to the flight tracker. And, as far as airlines go, comfort should've been 5 stars, but I really could have used a back pillow. Or even a back pillow option (had I asked an attendant - all of whom were awesome). PS. Kayak's regular emails kept me unusually updated on flight progress and their communication was the main factor in my decision to complete this survey."
Pros: "On the trip from Des Moines to Houston, timeliness of flight was great. The boarding went smooth and was done quickly. The crew were friendly and courteous. Overall the first half of the trip was fine."
Cons: "I was extremely disappointed in the condition of my luggage when I picked it up plane side. The wheel was broke off and all the pockets had been unzipped and it appeared they had been rummaged through. I had to drag my bag through the terminal. I spoke with 3 individuals with United who referred me onto the next and each unwilling as the previous to help. I myself am in customer service and would never treat my customers the way I was treated by the employees representing your Airline. I would go above and beyond to make the sure that the customers experience was a great one in spite of the unfotunate incident so they would return. I have never flown United before, and I will not consider your airline in the future."
Pros: "Text and email alerts."
Cons: "Everything. We arrived 2 hours early and my daughter worked very hard to fit everything she needed into a carry on bag which was not easy. Her flight was delayed, delayed again, delayed again, and then cancelled. She was flying alone and should have received top priority and been one of the first called up to figure out how to get her to her destination. But that did not happen. She didn't know what to do at first then got in the long line of people and waited her turn. ONLY TO BE TOLD THAT HER ONLY OPTION WAS TO FLY OUT ON A LATER FLIGHT TO HOUSTON WHICH WOULD MAKE HER MISS HER CONNECTING FLIGHT ANT THEN STAY THE NIGHT ALONE IN HOUSTON AND WAIT THE ENTIRE NEXT DAY THERE UNTIL 9 THE NEXT NIGHT TO CATCH HER FINAL FLIGHT TO SALT LAKE CITY. I cannot even explain how angry and horrified I was that your airline thought that was acceptable for an unaccompanied minor! Clearly this one option that was offered to her by you was not accepted. Then she calls and a guy tells her he can get her there and is going to book her new flights.....only to get disconnected and never called her back. After that there was no one to be found at the desks for your airline. At this point I had driven back to the airport (spent hours driving and waiting) when a wonderful lady from a different airline helped my daughter out and got her on a different airline. However she had to check her bag due to her seating after all the hard work she put in to not checking her bag."
Pros: "It got me home."
Cons: "Boarding was terrible. Couldn't hear the PA's for boarding. Didn't get the boarding group thing since there was absolutely no division of where groups should be and no room for the group lines until it backs into the wall. Upon boarding I noticed we were in the center seating which was not what I had booked directly with United. When I had originally called, I explained there were four of us and the explained we could have 2 and 2 by a window but in separate groups or 2 and 2 behind the others in the middle rows. I wanted the window seats. Upon getting the res notification I noticed it was in the center so I called to have it switched to the window rows as previously requested and he said no problem and he would change them. I guess I should have followed up again since once on the plane we were in the center seats. I explained to one of the flight attendants since this was kind of a big deal. She was going to check with the gate agent and get back to me. I never heard from her again even though she knew where we were sitting. I guess she was busy and forgot! The four of us were tired and fell asleep which caused us to miss the meal which was served very early in the flight. No problem until later in the flight I asked the female flight attendant in the back if I could get a meal or some snacks for my daughter since she was now hungry. She told me she would check on it when the seat belt sign was turned off. At this time it had been smooth for quite some time and many passengers and other flight attendants were up and walking around. So if this fa was so concerned shouldn't she be telling everyone else to sit down instead of sitting in the back READING A BOOK? I still didn't have a problem as we patiently waited until she just didn't acknowledge us. Finally, I made the same request to a male fa while the same female was right behind him. He was great and came back soon with a meal I believe he may have retrieved from 1st class. He said the original ones in the back had been sitting to long. Great job to him. Sorry I do not have names. The Lufthansa crew on the way over to Frankfurt worked nearly nonstop, this crew hardly worked. Not impressed at all. By the way, I never write reviews."
Pros: "Flight times were accurate."
Cons: "As soon as we arrived to the airport, checking in was the biggest hassle. We were harassed by a guy working the ticket counter named Guilermo. He was EXTREMELY rude and continued to harass us and followed us after we checked in and we're already at the security check point. It's $25 to check a bag but if you check 2 bags their website says its $35 for both. We were charged $50 to check two bags. Even after Guilermo told both of us that they wouldn't charge us for the second bag to be checked. The guy that checked our bags was also extremely rude and clearly didn't care. Once we started boarding the flight several passengers had to check their bags at the gate because there "wasn't enough room on the plane". Not really sure how this was fair since we had just paid $50 to check two bags and were lied to about it when several people just checked their bags for free. We chose to fly with United because of the good deals they have on flights but after our experience I would MUCH rather pay more money and have a lot better customer service. We had such a horrible experience it almost ruined our first day of our week long trip. I'm. It really sure if it's obvious to the employees of United but traveling for most people is a very special occasion. This occasion happen to be a very special one to us as it was a family vacation and seeing family we haven't seen in years. The poor attitudes and rude demeanor from the United staff is all we could think about even after we reached our destination."
Pros: "My flight was overbooked, and I was in one of the later boarding groups. When I got on the plane, someone else was in my seat, and apparently had been told by the crew to sit there. There were no extra seats visible. Clearly upset, a very nice flight attendant brought me back to the galley and chatted with me (not reacting negatively to my less-than-stellar attitude given the situation) while another went to "handle it." Not sure what magic she worked, but I ended up with a window seat in an exit row with lots of leg room. An unfortunate situation was handled very well and I'm really appreciative!"
Cons: "I couldn't get the WiFi to work and my seat didn't recline (because it was an exit row)."
Pros: "Seats were okay as far as comfort level"
Cons: "This flight was overbooked. I had to be back at work the next day, so I really needed to take it. The gate agents wouldn't tell me what was going on, only that the flight was overbooked and that they were "trying to get me a seat." I stood there while all of the groups boarded, waiting for my ticket. I was the last person given a ticket. By the time I finally got to board, all overhead space was taken, so I had to gate check my bag. And then someone had taken the seat I was given, so I had to ask him to move, and he started crying (child). He cried for 20 minutes, so that was fun. Also, this was a red eye - I really wanted to sleep, but right as I was dozing off, the flight attendants turned on the lights for drink service. Overall, just a really poor experience and very hard to sleep."
Cons: "Our plane was delayed leaving Grand Rapids. Once in Houston there was no gate available causing another 10 minute delay. All bags were required to be checked plane side so once we finally got off the plane it took another 10 minutes to get our bags. Many passengers had tight connections and had to rush to their next flight. My connection was already tight as it was - and I had to go to a completely different terminal very far from where I was to catch it. Five of us were on that flight connecting to San Diego. We finally made it to the gate. The plane was still there but the door was closed so we were not allowed to board. It was the last flight out so we were stranded in Houston overnight. This caused me to miss a very important medical appointment this morning - and to have to cancel client sessions leading to a significant loss of income."
Cons: "Original flight was cancelled the night before due to aircraft maintenance. Then too find out that United was only flying 1 plane per day from POS but when purchasing the ticket its listing multiple flights is TERRIBLE. The unorganized, under staffed situation in the airport that had NO answers or explanations for people was TERRIBLE. Once on a rescheduled flight having to sit on a plane for nearly 3hrs due to the flight being completely full with passenager and baggage that the required amount of fuel couldnt be added other wise we would have been over weight, not having enough lunches and beverages for all passenagers, missing my connecting flight and also having my luggage left behind and having to wait another day to recieve it. I was in the airport from 430am and didnt make it home to CLE until 10pm......ABSOLUTLYTERRIBLE!!!"
"It’s not frontier’s fault I think it’s most airlines seats suck unless your in first, but would an extra inch of foam on the bottom cushion be that hard?"
Pros: "Price. You get what you pay for"
Cons: "Why does the city have to fix a ramp? Leaving Denver was late arrived in Houston late. Cant get off plane due to equipment issues."
Pros: "The male agent at the counter was great! Unfortunately that was the only good thing about the trip. Everything was SO expensive, had to pay $1.99 for a bottle of water which is free in other flights. The crew on board didn’t do anything and didn’t come through to collect trash until the very end."
Cons: "More affordable prices, snacks and drinks available in flight, and a more helpful crew on board."
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "No WiFi, no food."
Pros: "Crew was personable and helpful"
Cons: "Longest boarding I’ve ever experienced."
Cons: "Where do I start? The $45 dollar charge for one bag is ridiculous. The charge of $2.99 for a can coke and the seats do not recline at all."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "You get *1* carry on. A 2nd carry on or checked bag is **$45.** The most unreasonable and expensive bag price in the industry. Highway robbery. Who the hell flies anywhere with only one checked bag? I mean, seriously. It is an unreasonable expectation to put it mildly. Second of all, *you have to PAY to select a goddamn seat.* What the hell? Who the hell does that? *0* other airlines CHARGE you for the pleasure of picking a seat. That is insane. So, that is $18 at a bare minimum to choose the most inexpensive class of seats on the plane. Third of all, **you have to pay for ALL drinks of any kind.* Free water? Hell no. Free sodas, juice, coffee, tea, etc? Hell no. You have to pay for all of it. So then I was dehydrated the whole flight, which was very unpleasant and put me in an even more foul mood. The way they nickle and dime you on this godforsaken airline is criminal. So, To Review, if I had flown round trip it would cost *at a minimum* $18 + $18 + $45 + $45 ($126 goddamn dollars) in fees that no other airline in the industry charges. That is insane; and that happens to be approximately what I paid for my flight. So for all unreasonable charges I could have had a bonus flight somewhere. I will never, ever fly on this godforsaken airline ever again; and please believe I will tell every single one of my friends and (gigantic) family that not only does this crappy airline get 0 Stars from me, but they should under no circumstances ever fly on this horrible airline ever. Pick literally *any* other airline over this hot nonsense."
Pros: "I paid 270$ extra for the carry on bags for the three tickets. If I knew that I would have chosen United tickets because they would be cheaper."
Cons: "Kayak you guys fooled me and I’ll not trust you again."
Pros: "On time, no issues and because it was my birthday they upgraded me for free to the exit row. I am 6'6"...that is a big deal."
Pros: "Fare was affordable The flight was on time"
Cons: "Baggage charges cor carry on were unexpected. We expected charges for checked baggage but not carry on! It was our first time to travel with frontier and we were unprepared. There were six of us (family) and each with carry on baggage. We were shocked upon arriving at the counter that we will be paying extra. Anyway, charge to experience. Overall the flight was fine."
Pros: "The airplane was clean."
Cons: "The seats were not reclinable and for a 3.5 hour flight in which I wanted to get in some sleep I was unable to sleep. Also the seats were very narrow and with almost no padding. I could feel the padding had wore off and my back was touching with the metal of the seat. Add all that up together and instead of a regular airplane seat it was like seating on a rigid chair for 3.5 hours. Moreover, since I couldn't sleep I decided to at least get in some work, but then I realized that the tray was so tiny that it can't even fit the smallest of laptops... I know it is a low cost airline, but paying for carry ons, checked bags, selecting seats and on flight beverages is plenty for a low cost airline. Frontier doesn't need to top it off with the most new uncomfortable seats possible. At least with Ryanair the seats are more comfortable, you can bring a carry on at no cost and the flight ticket is cheaper."
Cons: "Great flight"
Pros: "The ride home"
Cons: "The 4 hour delay that received once we arrived at 4:30 AM to catch our 6 o'clock flight home to find out it had been delayed until 9:28 AM. Once we were on the plane we were then told we would be delayed until 10 AM. Flying with two children was difficult for a four hour delay. However front tier did give us all $10 food vouchers and $50 vouchers each for our next flight. Once we landed in Houston we then sat on the tarmac for another hour waiting for the gate open. The plane did have mechanical issues which caused the delay but still the notice given was always last minute"
Pros: "On time. Priced low. Staff professional, friendly."
Pros: "The cleanliness and newness of the plane and the price of the flight! It's like I stepped into a bran new 2017 plane."
Pros: "Flight was fine. Short flight of 2 hours, but no snack or tv."
Cons: "I wish all planes had a tv on the back of their seats!"
Pros: "Getting off the plane, pilot and crew on plane."
Cons: "There was nothing to like. Ticketing was horrible. Cut off times not allowing people to get on plane in phoenix. It was chaos. The police were called on one man. Charge for carry on and refreshments card only with No warning at time of purchase. Had to throw away my luggage."
Pros: "Frontier seems to have more leg room than the typical economy seat. Also, they didn't lose our bags. That's about all the positive that I can say."
Cons: "The return flight was delayed by nearly 3 hours. Once on board, it was very warm for the entire flight. Also, Frontier is a good deal for a reason- there was no in-flight entertainment option, any drinks except water are provided at a cost and there is a charge for carry-on luggage that will not fit below the seat."
Cons: "First time flying with Frontier and two of the flights were delayed over an hour..."
Pros: "The price of the flight was great, until I realized I was being charged for every little thing. What a rip off! I should have flown United."
Cons: "I had a severe allergic reaction due to the passengers in my row carrying four cats. I had to take Benadryl and broke out into hives. The flight attendants didn't even offer to move my seat. It was a truly terrible experience and I can't believe that there's not a better protocol in place with the airline to accommodate customers with severe allergies to animals, even when they are labeled as emotional support animals. This as a truly terrible experience. Thank goodness the flight was only 4 hours. I'll never fly Frontier again."
Cons: "It may be customary now, but we arrived with all our luggage as carry-on bags. We learned that they now charge more for carry on luggage than they do for checked bags. So we ended up checking two carry-on bags that we could have easily consolidated into one larger bag if we had known ahead of time. 2nd and worst of all - when we were checking in they told us our seats were not yet assigned (even though I picked seats out when I purchased the tickets). They showed a seating chart, but the only seats together required a premium payment of an extra $30 per seat! We complained and they told us to let the computer assign seats for us. That worked and the computer ended up assigning us two premium seats together. By the way - I did see what was "premium" about these seats. They reminded me of spirit airlines. Overall it seems like frontier is now trying to find ways to charge customers for things that were previously included and it is somewhat intentionally deceptive. I appreciated the low cost of the ticket, but I was left with a bad feeling overall. Spirit airlines is an inexpensive no frills airline as well but at least they are upfront and direct. I will fly with them next time if I have to, or go back to United."
Pros: "The attendants and the crew were very sympathetic and did everything in their power to accommodate the passages due to the delay."
Cons: "Waiting in the airport from 7 am to 2 pm due to multiple flight delays. I had a short trip and the first day would have allowed time to sight see before the conference. We arrived to late in the evening to visit any sights."
Cons: "They charge for carry on luggage, shame! Even if everything else was perfect (it wasn't) they would still suck just for that reason,"
Pros: "I arrived"
Cons: "Late - as usual!"
Cons: "I booked this flight because it seemed an unbelievable value. Well, the price was, indeed, too good to be true. Upon receiving the reminder to book, I discovered they charge not only for checked in bags but for carry-ons. Oh, and they charge more if you don't book more than 24 hours in advance. Oh, and they charge for choosing your seat (that I didn't go for). The food for purchase stinks (only bad snacks for a four hour flight), the seats are uncomfortable, it did take off and arrive on time, I'll give it that. But after adding on $120 for my checked carry-on fee, it was no bargain, I will never fly this airline again."
Cons: "Seats didn't lay back and had to pay for carry on luggage"
Pros: "The crew were friendly and polite. The cabin was a comfortable temperature."
Cons: "I'm only 5'9" but there was no room to stretch my legs. The rows of seats are too close together. Basically I had to sit down for 4 hours and not move. And it didn't help that the kid behind us kept banging the tiny tray table on the backs of our seats, even though that's not your fault."
Pros: "got there safely and our checked luggage went with us ; plus the employees were nice but that's about it. Could've been worse but won't Frontier to make it so in the future."
Cons: "We were late arriving on both flights, online check in didn't work, had to pay extra for ANY seat and for all other things that aren't normally paid for on other airlines and the airline overall is obviously barely making it. I thought that major carriers such as Delta and United were bad but Frontier and so many others that are cut rate airlines make them look not so bad which is why I'll go back to flying with them and Frontier will probably never see my money again."
Cons: "Flight delayed over 6 hours and they still charged an arm and leg for everything"
Cons: "The plane was almost 2 hours late, we had to change terminals (and go through security twice as a result), the flight attendants seemed like they weren't trying and freaked out the plane passengers by announcing that we were going to Denver instead of Hoiston"
Pros: "Nothing. Worst Airline. Will never travel in this Airline. We will ask everybody to whom we know not to travel in this Airline"
Pros: "The airfare was reasonable, and boarding was fairly quick."
Cons: "Paying $40 dollars for a checked bag is ridiculous and $45 for a carry-on is high way robbery. They need to revamp their baggage policies. The baggage prices will prevent me from flying with this airline in the future."
Pros: "The lines were short. Staff was friendly. The prices were great! This is a very professional air line and I will definitely use them again. A few things to improve on: simple things like complimentary coffee or water would be nice. Also, a magazine for flyers would give us a nice touch of entertainment. These are small things that matter."
Cons: "No complimentary water or coffee."
Cons: "The staff at the Frontier check in desk was extremely rude. (Which I can imagine is because they spend their day getting fussed at because of how awful Frontier is). I was charged over $100 per way for my family to bring very small carry on items onto the plane. I have NEVER heard of being charged for very small backpack sized carry ons. When I questioned the staff member, she looked at me and literally did not respond. She stared at me like I was speaking another language. I waited over an hour and a half for our checked bags to come to the baggage claim area. Everyone was looking for Frontier staff to help us as our bags didn't seem to be coming. The two staff members we found were HORRIBLE and extremely rude. They stood there leaning against the wall staring at us and telling us they couldn't help us - It isn't their department? The seats are uncomfortable- they do not recline at all. They charge for EVERYTHING on the plane- including drinks (non-alcoholic). Overall, the staff was rude, the charges were outrageous, and the flight was uncomfortable. I have never had such a horrible experience and will NEVER fly Frontier again. ."
Pros: "The cdcrew was curtious"
Cons: "Seats suck No inflight dtv Charge for everything Seat fee Bag fee Carry on fees When its all done you cost more not less. Wont use you again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
Pros: "clean plane"
Cons: "I haven't flown Frontier in a while. I didn't realize I have to buy my seat too? What the heck is that? Sure it's only another $13 min. But here's the catch, you get a seat They've replaced the pull down table with a small flip down "table" that is about 1/3 the size of a standard table. While this does offer more legroom, it makes eating difficult and uncomfortable. I could not rest a standard square salad container on it during the flight. Luckily, I had a plastic bag from the vendor that I could put over my slacks to act as a big placemat. I didn't want to spill dressing on my pants. No WIFI onboard In short, I will be avoiding Frontier in the future. I do fly budget airlines like SW, but at least the attitude there is better. And what you get is clear."
Pros: "The extra leg room I was able to purchase."
Cons: "The flight attendants were not pleasant, rude to some pas sengers and spent a lot of time talking with each other and a few select passengers."
Pros: "Not sure"
Cons: "They started boarding and then stopped so we were stuck in the breezeway. Then we sat on the plane for what seemed like forever. The crew were not approachable and helpful. The plane was freezing!!"
Cons: "Delayed crew 3 hours no. Computers to tell who should be on plane"
Cons: "Start with paying for a carry-on, which made this "cheap" flight as expensive as a better airline. And paying for a seat assignment?! Didn't get a chance to experience paying for water onboard, as the entire flight was cancelled. Thanks to their lack of connection to other airlines, they couldn't get us where we were going prior to our RETURN date. So our lodging, car rental, etc all were completely wasted, at our expense - no vacation, but still had to pay for it. "Nothing we can do, sorry, it's the weather..." Really?! Weather explains a delay, not torpedoing the entire vacation. This airline is the absolute pits."
Pros: "My tickets was changed to the next flight when I missed my flight bcecause I checked in and my luggage was accounted for when I finally arrived home"
Cons: "I was told the plane was leaving 10 mins late; went to get a sandwich and although I checked in through security the flight staff did not page me and let me know take off was as scheduled. I was 1 min away from my gate and I watched my plane drive away earlier than the delayed time"
Pros: "Absolutely Nothing!"
Cons: "Our flight was cancelled. There were over 200 people waiting at the ticket counter and there were only TWO agents to take care of all the problems!!! When I tried to call Frontier, all their lines were busy and I kept getting disconnected due to the high volume...wasn't even put on hold. When I tried booking a flight online for the next day, it said all the flights were full. During all this chaos, no one told us how or wahere we were supposed to retrieve our luggage, what options we had...NOTHING!!! We even asked the ticketing personnel to announce where people could retrieve their luggage...their response was "I guess we could do that"...but they never did! We ended up booking a last minute flight on another airline that cost us a ton of money. So, while Fromtier bills themselves as a low cost airline, one glitch and they fall apart on the service side and you end up paying A LOT more. Also, watch out for all the extra fees they charge you. Their initial price looks great, but I had to pay $30 for a carry-on bag! Had to pay additional money for a seat in coach! They nickel and dime you to death and it ends up costing the same as the other full price carriers. BUYER BEWARE!!!"
Pros: "I liked the lady pilot but she was almost too nice...shouldn't sound so apologetic about weather or mechanical delays which are out of her control or for the passengers' safety. Comfort was as expected. Boarding was pretty smooth. (But de-boarding and re-boarding was a pretty disruptive fiasco.)"
Cons: "What entertainment? What food? Or do you mean 'snack and drink choices for purchase'? (Didn't purchase anything b/c not to my liking but...l think probably for most, okay.) The crew, for the most part, with what they have to work with (mostly information, no real service except to sell snacks, etc), they were fine and kept mainly to themselves."
Cons: "The pilot saying they would go fast and ant other w as you they could to make up time. I 5hink everyone knows acciders happen when you rush and don't follow normal protocol. Maybe I am the only one that doesn't like anew attendant that jokes about safety."
Cons: "Nickeled and dimes you to death. $90 in baggage fees and I booked online! Would have been more at the gate! Plane was filthy. I've never seen a plane that filthy. Not dirty. Filthy. Disgusting. Then, the joke was, if the plane is going down the oxygen masks will be coin operated. I heard several other people say they would never fly Frontier again either."
Cons: "I get their and theirs no one to check me in. I was an hour early and a half early and yet,I didn't see anyone at the front desk. I kept asking the flight group next door if they Had a clue weather or not they were their, and all I got for an hour str8 is " they'll be back shortly ". They never came. I missed my flight. And important meetings in Texas. Now I'm Re-schedule for Friday. When I'm Suppose to Be their Before Thursday. And besides all the "BS" they Charge You Extra and Hella Expensive on the Baggage and carry on. It's like ur Buying a House with all the Hidden Fees they Don't Mention. ***Worst Experience Yet"
Pros: "Staff was very nice"
Cons: "Flight delayed for or more hours sat on runway for at least two expected at least a free drink but was still charged for every soda and snack bar"
Pros: "Flight was delayed about 3 hours. First was a delay of 1 and half hours for maintenance, then they brought a different plane. Then we were delayed an hour on the tarmack for an hour due to weather. Not their fault But all we were offered was water. Brew was very nice. Just really felt that due to "double whammy". Should have at least got a coke. They also charge $40 for carry on bag. Really."
Pros: "The crew was nice. Never have I been so delayed with little to no information, but they were doing the best they could.."
Cons: "Horrible delays, no information, tons of hidden costs, and did I mention horrible delays?!"
