Pros: "Flight crew was nice."
Cons: "They were careless with our luggage. 2 wheels on my husband's suitcase and 1 on mine were broken off. We have flown before with other airlines, never has our property been damaged before."
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "I dislike cramped, crowded seating. Alaska could reconfigure and lose a row or two to allow for more leg room and customer comfort. I wouldn't fly Alaska if I had another choice."
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Tray tables very dirty, flight overbooked, hard to find gate agents"
Cons: "Flight attendants were not particularly friendly. Food had some odd textures."
Pros: "The customer service rep was polite"
Cons: "They cancelled my flight the night before claiming ‘weather’. It was fine flying weather at my origin, destination, and layover airports and forecast to remain so. All other carriers were flying. The re-booked me not on a later flight, but on the next day with not one, but now two layovers."
Pros: "Wonderful quick flight!"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Got drinks and snacks to passengers quickly."
Cons: "There was a long delay to defrost the wings, it took a long time for the team that does the defrosting to get to the plane."
Pros: "Great crew and flight service. Quick and friendly, the plane was clean."
Cons: "Small planes are rarely comfortable, it's less of a reflection on Alaska Air and more on smaller aircraft. No in flight entertainment, less expected on small craft."
Pros: "Flight was late leaving Reno. No room at the terminal in Seattle so they used busses to transport us to the terminal, but instead of us entering the airline terminal we went all the way to the main terminal area. 3 trains later I missed my connection"
Cons: "All of the above"
Pros: "The flight went exactly as anticipated. 30 minute departure delay due to airport construction, but arrived almost on time."
Pros: "It was a smooth flight - crew was really nice."
Cons: "Nothing - it was all good"
Pros: "I missed the flight and they got me rescheduled and on my way when I showed up at service desk just before cabin closure"
Pros: "On time departure and arrival."
Cons: "No food options..,just one small cracker."
Pros: "Easy, on time, arrived early!"
Cons: "Na"
Pros: "Free Maitai on arrival, on time departure and landing, friendly crew, decent food. Big overhead bins also a plus."
Pros: "Great flight crew"
Cons: "Nothing to dislike"
Pros: "All the staff was friendly and did the best they could"
Cons: "Had the last seets in row 32 Very uncomfortable. Was not given anything to drink for over an hour. When the meal trays reached us in the last row of seats, no more hot meals available..... We were by the bathrooms in the back of the plane. Every time someone use the bathroom the doors kept slamming and there was really no peace to close your eyes or sleep if needed on the long trip Very disappointed. Jerry"
Pros: "A Flight attendant went beyond the call of duty when she found me after I had returned to my seat. This was after I had walked to the rear of the acft to work out a bad cramp in my thigh. She provided me with a hot water bottle that did wonders in relieving the pain and stopped the cramp from returning."
Cons: "I don't like the fact that I didn't take the time to remember her name."
Pros: "Easy boarding. Friendly staff."
Cons: "Wish they had lids for kids drinks. Guy in front of our kid slammed his seat back and spilled a full cup of sprite on our autistic child but he took it pretty well. I know the airline can’t control passengers but a lid would’ve minimized the spill."
Cons: "They overcharged me for my beer by $9 and I didn't notice until I got home when I looked at my billing statement."
Cons: "the airline attendant poured wine all over my suit jacket. i am traveling on a quick business trip and only brought this one suit jacket, which has been doused w/wine and smells disgusting. this was after i saw him douse another passenger w/water. i wish it was water he spilled on me!"
Cons: "delay in takeoff and general confusion of staff about what was to happen."
Pros: "First flight on Alaska, fantastic airline! Will definitely fly them again. Friendly crew, good perks, comfortable flight. Highly recommend."
Pros: "Flight departure and arrival was on time. Staff even helped move our seats so family could sit together."
Cons: "Nothing I did not like."
Cons: "5 hour flight and no comp meal served. Hot / stuffy / no air flow coming out of vents. Aircraft: 737 -900."
Pros: "I had a problem with my ticket, and before my flight the information desk helped me get it resolved very quickly with none of the hassles I have come to expect flying other airlines. Huge relief!"
Cons: "Our 10:15 a.m. flight was delayed until 11:45 a.m. - we had arrived at the airport too early and ended up waiting a long time in a crowded and noisy terminal that lacked sufficient seats for all the travelers at the gate (Gates 11, etc.)"
Pros: "Always nice people. Boarding was slow due to tech failure but gate agents were resourceful and pleasant about it"
Pros: "The flight attendants were extremely nice and informed us about the cool deals they have for ski season in Oregon and Washington. I will definitely be flying Alaska a lot more!"
Cons: "The flight was overbooked. We changed gates at the last minute and we weren't confirmed until after other passengers had boarded. Flight was delayed an hour because of this."
Cons: "Noisy slow aircraft. Very expensive for a turbine a/c."
Pros: "What a pleasure to fly with Alaska Airlines. Have yet to feel like I was an imposition with traveling with AA. Thanks for letting me feel like a client rather than a bother. Virgin Air and AA will be a happy merge, I believe. Keep your work ethic and soar even higher!"
Cons: "Not a thing. 15E and 15F even!"
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "The airline changed flights and somehow lost my original seats, staying on the flight cost additional money beyond the original price so that we could sit together as a family. Every time I fly I have another reason to tell friends and family not to fly."
Pros: "Good snack and free wine and beer. And friendly crew."
Cons: "Small plane, small laboratory."
Pros: "Not being woke up"
Cons: "Crying baby behind me most the flight"
Pros: "Wonderfully attentive staff with Alaskan that made my trip very enjoyable."
Pros: "The weather in Reno. I didn't however make it to Seattle."
Cons: "I did not like the fact that I arrived at the airport at 11:15 AM for a noon flight and by the time I got to the front of the line was told that 11:20 AM was the cut off time for that flight. I do not like the fact that the ticket agent Was quite rude and uncaring and unhelpful. The Epitome of poor customer service for a terrible policy. she almost seemed to gloat over the fact that she could not or would not help me join my family for a dinner in Seattle."
Pros: "Cabin was nice and warm during flight. Crew were kind and easy to talk to. Planes ran on time too. Well done."
Cons: "The fact that it's owned and operated by Horizon,which meant smaller planes were cut (via a corporate choice), off from having wi-fi. Seriously? Why only give a few planes wifi access and then proceed to market your flights including wifi?? It's rather deceptive. :( This is a let down and ethically kind of stinky!"
Pros: "The flight was very good! The ground and flight crews were very courteous and took the time to answer our questions and help us to move through the flight process very quickly and efficiently."
Cons: "The only complaint is the additional cost for luggage on the aircraft. My wife and I both had a suitcase and we were charged accordingly. I'm confident that this is a requirement of the airline but it should all be doable if within the 50lb weight limit. Thank you for everything, Randy Patchett"
Pros: "It was a smooth flight with very accommodating flight attendants. It couldn't have been any better."
Cons: "My fought was canceled with no costumer service answeringvtge phone and I had to re book my next ticket"
Cons: "part of leg space is used up by the airplane. Guess you can't really change that, but it was uncomfortable"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and professional; boarding was rushed; cabin was clean, but seating was very cramped; entertainment was v good (and currently free) using own tablet, phone, or smart phone."
Cons: "Really? Flight from San Jose to Reno delayed 1 1/2 hours. Return flight delayed 1 hour, then canceled altogether. Both flights delayed or canceled due to mechanical problems. Yes, you did provide a $250 credit, but I lost a day's pay from work. Luckily, my family has a place in Truckee . Felt sorry for so many of the passengers whose travel plans were greatly changed by Alaska's mechanical problems."
Pros: "The flig t had a delayed departure so I was given a voucher for $12 to get something to eat. In this day and age I thought that was very thoughtful. Also a representative handed each passenger a chit with instructions for a discount on a future flight. Again a thought act instead of a flat response!"
Cons: "Lack of space between passengers."
Cons: "You failed to inform me that Alaska no longer offered the original flight from Eugene to Portland, so I had to buy another flight the next day and ended up being late for a family gathering for thanksgiving. The Eugene airport was extremely helpful but your service has been horrendous. I will no longer book through a 3rd party. I know this is the wrong flight I'm commenting on but your poor service equates to my poor feedback."
Pros: "We were lucky and had a seat open between us. Comfortable, and crew were great."
Pros: "I was pleased that the crew was helping to get everyone on board and settled quickly. The plane was on time which everyone appreciates."
Pros: "Crew members services were great."
Cons: "Seats are small size, old and some are ripped. Lavatory had no handwash. Most of all, the plane was very shaky/vibrates a lot. Landing wasn't that smooth."
Pros: "I booked my flight within 48 hours of travel and received a fare that I would expect normally with months of planning ahead."
Cons: "The turbulence but obviously a much smaller plane will get whipped around a lot more."
Cons: "Getting through the ag inspection followed by security was a bear!!!"
Pros: "Great compared to other airlines food needs work"
Cons: "The food is disgusting"
Pros: "Crew was great,"
Cons: "The seats are too small for 5 hours of flight time."
Pros: "Crew was outstanding! Relaxed yet professional vibe"
Cons: "Online seat check in was confusing"
Pros: "Snack, cocktail, quick boarding, early landing"
Cons: "The seat is nice and wide but has a tiny upturn at the back which is uncomfortable after 2 hours."
Pros: "Hawaiian Air is very well run. Just a good experience compared to the other carriers... I wish Delta and United's fleets were as clean and efficient."
Cons: "Well, we sat next to two babies. I think what Japan air is doing is right."
Pros: "Nice, friendly & informative"
Cons: "Honolulu cookies!"
Cons: "Everything was Okrrrrrrrr!"
Cons: "They served me a vomit sandwich!! It was a chicken pesto sandwich that I thought was chicken salad but there was pieces of chicken in it. I think... Was gross. And I was hungry!"
Pros: "Awesome crew. They are friendly and professional"
Cons: "Arrived a little late but not a big deal"
Pros: "Non stop very good"
Cons: "Served no vegetarian lunch just chicken"
Pros: "Affordable price"
Cons: "No USB charger"
Pros: "Price is good"
Cons: "No usb charge"
Pros: "Complimentary meals and snacks"
Cons: "Nothing to dislike"
Cons: "Rerouted in airport to different checkin after standing in a long time. Not Hawaiian airlines issue but poor management on the part of the airport staff."
Cons: "I attempted to change my seat but realised there was an upgrade fee. I was then unable to change it back on the way there. The crew gave me the seat on the way there because their system was not working correctly and didn't tell me I would have to pay for it on the way back. Upon my return I was unable to print out my return flight boarding pass without paying for the upgrade."
Cons: "Plane was dirty and I was freezing during the flight even with a couple of layers on! Now I’m sick"
Pros: "Flight 4 hours late."
Cons: "Wet seat had to be changed. No overhead or seat lights on night flight."
Pros: "HA is flying an Airbus A3231 Neo between Oakland and Maui. It's a single-aisle aircraft. The economy section is more comfortable than any other aircraft I've flown. Not dramatically different, but the little things add up. Back support in the seats are vastly improved. Under-seat storage is actually usable for a change. Overhead bins are capacious and easily accessible. Great choice!"
Pros: "Large plane. Good hospitality."
Cons: "No vegetarian option for food. Pay for movies and TV."
Pros: "The kiosk was out and no one was available to ask questions on the floor"
Cons: "Rough flight. too much turbulence!"
Pros: "Clean,good service"
Cons: "Crowded unless paid for extra leg room, food isn’t that great, cabin kept too cold... trying to sell blankets? No free entertainment?"
Cons: "The captain announced our arrival time saying it was Pacific Standard Time ! (It's still Pacific daylight Time). Didn't exactly inspire confidence."
Pros: "it was cool to get a read meal during the flight"
Cons: "- The seats were very worn and i could feel the reading material in the pocket behind me. There was no padding on the lower back of the seat. - The airline moved the flight up by 25 minutes. Being late is one thing, but if we didn't arrive early, the plane would have left without us. Moving the flight time up as late as they did is just asking for people to be left behind. - THEY PLAYED A REALLY ANNOYING VIDEO AT THE END OF THE FLIGHT AT VERY HIGH VOLUME OVER THE PA AT 10PM. THIS WAS VERY RUDE, AND THE SAME VIDEO WAS PLAYED AT THE BEGINNING OF FLIGHT. IT WAS NOT AT ALL ENTERTAINING, AND SHOULD BE ELIMINATED FROM THE FLIGHT."
Pros: "Service and food"
Pros: "I like that they actually serve food, snacks, drinks, complimentary glass of wine, and everyone is nice!"
Cons: "I had my own entertainment so I was fine with my iPad, but some airlines have tv's for everyone! Their movie screens played Hawaiian music videos, after one I was bored! Too many waterfalls, which is something I never thought I'd say"
Cons: "The baggage took almost an hour to be retrieved. Specifically the staff was inadequate to unload baggage. The last things to be returned were all of the car seats, meaning the already late flight for families waited over an hour to leave the airport."
Pros: "Check in was a breeze. All was on time. The ride was smooth safe."
Cons: "Didn't like the complimentary "stir fry" chicken and rotten cabbage salad. Guess they had to give it away cause if you paid for it you would want a refund and a barf bag. No movies anymore? I guess we were spoiled by Alaskans free wifi and downloads from their app on the flight there. But if there was any entertainment we couldn't have heard if over the crying children. The attendants were sour pusses, not a smile among them. They gave attitude with their service. I kind of felt their pain with the 15-20 screaming toddlers that were uncomfortable and begging for help. How about getting rid of the first class area and making a day care area where children can move about rather than parents up and down the aisles sharing the misery with us all. Didn't have the courtesy to alert us to our baggage terminal. I don't think I will ever get used to paying for my small bag to be stowed rather than fill up the passenger area."
Pros: "The staff of Hawaiian offered us drinks (more than once), a snack and a meal. The leg room was generous and bathrooms clean and we'll stocked."
Cons: "The boarding process was slow."
Pros: "Crew and ease of boarding."
Cons: "Deplaning in Oakland"
Pros: "Relatively comfortable seats. Good crew. Free glass of wine."
Cons: "No meal options (we're vegan). Only old overhead video with no movie options unless you rent one of the few tables they have on the plane for a 5+ hour flight. Huge box filling a third of my food space for what? There are also no USB or electric plugs for power."
Pros: "i didnt have to worry about starving or being thirsty on the plane"
Pros: "Some helpful cabin crew"
Cons: "Decrepit plane, broken seat, husband and I were assigned seats at opposite ends of the plane, inedible food"
Pros: "The crew treats you well"
Cons: "Seats are cramped, food is pretty poor, and the old planes don't have the movie screens at every seat,and there is not much to watch. Sound system is also pretty poor"
Pros: "Friendly staff good flight."
Cons: "More in flight entertainment is always nice. Movies and charging ports are must these days."
Pros: "The flight to and from Honolulu was on time. The staff was courteous and accommodating. The planes were clean and comfortable. Mahalo making our trip pleasant."
Cons: "What's not to like!!!"
Pros: "Everything else was great"
Pros: "nice friendly . lliked the meal both ways"
Cons: "didn't want to pay for the $7.99 premium seat-back entertainment. that should be free No wi fi"
Pros: "Really friendly and helpful gate staff and flight crew. Food was reasonable for airplane food. Comfortable compared to other airlines, which cram you in these days. We didn't even bother with the entertainment system - between the choices and prices we'd rather read books."
Pros: "There was a lot to like. Very comfortable seats in coach on the A330 with decent legroom. They served free hot dinner with a complimentary glass of wine! Friendly crew too. Highly recommend Hawaiian."
Cons: "My wife has a broken ankle. They were disorganized boarding the folks who needed assistance and getting them off the plane. There were several people in wheelchairs so maybe they were overwhelmed but they should have done better."
Pros: "The flight was very smooth (kudos to the Pilot). The dinner was delicious (best I've had on Hawaiian Airlines). Most of the crew members were very kind and courteous. Even friendly to the crying kids. Loved the selection of entertainment that was readily available. That definitely helped with the long flight."
Cons: "There was one specific crew member that was just unfriendly & looked irritated most of the flight. Especially when he came around pouring water & to pick up trash."
Pros: "Flight crew was friendly & courteous. Flight seemed shorter than the expected 4-1/2 hours of misery."
Cons: "1. At the airport in Maui, once we used the self-check-in to print our boarding passes and luggage check-in tags other airlines would have had someone take you luggage from you and you're done. Here, we now have to take our luggage and get into a long line where we then take it to another counter. 2. Why were there twice as many people in the TSA pre-check line as in the regular line? My son and his GF did not have TSA pre-check, yet they went through security much faster than my wife & I. 3. Seats too narrow. I was snugly fit in, and I had to stand in order to get something out of my front pant's pocket. 4. Not enough legroom and no way to stretch my leg (and my very painful knee). We sat in row 17. It was right side bulkhead on 2-3-2 configuration. There was no way to stretch out my knee. The configuration of the inside of the aircraft placed the bulkhead wall too close to the seat. My leg was at about 70 degrees the entire flight (0 degrees is completely straight). Notably, the same row on the left side of the plane had about another 12 inches of leg-room. That's just the way the plane was configured. 5. No WiFi 6. Entertainment device rip-off. I wasn't interested in renting an entertainment device, but I was offended by their offer. If you signed up for it at the desk before boarding you would pay $15 and would get the device 20 minutes after take-off. If you waited until you were on the plane you would pay $17. The worse part: YOU WOULDN'T GET THE DEVICE UNTIL 2 HOURS INTO THE FLIGHT!!!"
Pros: "I don't travel too often so when I took Hawaiian Airlines, I was pleasantly surprised that they serve a complimentary meal while on board. During my flight, they served chicken with white rice and mixed vegetables, a cookie for dessert and water. Oh, and a complimentary red or white wine to go with your dinner. Not too shabby! Great service by the flight attendants as well."
Cons: "Even though I don't travel often, I feel like I've been on enough planes to know that free TV and movies are essential. Hawaiian Airlines lacked that feature. A few episodes or "series" that they had were interesting but not enough to keep me fully engaged. You had to pay for individual movies ($7.99) and even though it isn't a terrible price for a movie, I still wasn't willing to pay. If movies couldn't be free, then why not the regular TV shows? I think folks would have been okay with TV shows if the options were plentiful."
Pros: "Not much. The crew members' smiles were nice. That's about it."
Cons: "So cold! I asked 4 times for the temperature to be adjusted. Each time the crew member said that the temp was adjusted, and it would be getting warmer. Let me be clear: IT NEVER GOT WARMER! Furthermore, Hawaiian Airlines had the nerve to charge econ seats $10 per blanket. Even for babies! And we even heard a toddler say, "Mom, it's sooooo cold!""
Cons: "Sat next to two men that should have purchased 2 seats for themselves due to how large they were. Basically I sat in a seat and shared it with a man that was in mine to and smelt disgusting. Not sure how no crew member allowed this to occur"
Cons: "would like complimentary TV channels and movies"
Pros: "It was all great!"
Cons: "Nothing at all."
Pros: "Reasonably comfortable for economy seats. Baggage came out in reasonable time."
Cons: "No choice in lunch. Bad news for vegetarians!"
Pros: "The spacious seats are wonderful. The cleanliness! The movie selections. The incredibly professional, courteous, kind flight attendants. Free meal! (it's a long flight) Being able to buy a half bottle of red wine. The humor of the gate attendant during and after we boarded was a treat. It was a fully booked flight but managed to avoid that pushy, hectic atmosphere while boarding and after. Very peaceful, easy flight along the lines of what Virgin and Jet Blue introduced a decade ago. The flight ended up feeling like part of the vacation. Will always choose Hawaiian in the future."
Cons: "Absolutely nothing."
Pros: "everything was just as comforting as it was pre-pandemic"
Pros: "It was great, friendly staff"
Pros: "crew was amazing"
Pros: "Fast easy flight"
Pros: "Crew was exellent"
Cons: "The food quality needs to improve."
Pros: "Flight crew got us to Columbus on time despite a delay leaving the gate"
Cons: "More room, less congestion."
Pros: "The Movie selection was pretty good for such a long flight."
Cons: "Seats front to back is WAY too short in economy. Person in front of me put their seat back putting my movie screen 2in in front of my face. Plus, when a meal arrived, I had to put my elbows into my neighbors seat to cut because I couldn't put them front to back. Crew seemed uncaring."
Cons: "You guys didn't allow me to get in this plane and i missed my flight."
Pros: "Delta crew and offerings are great."
Pros: "Good communication about weather and delay"
Cons: "No delay. Consider dropping the $75 standby fee."
Pros: "Clean leather seats. Good screen for movies."
Cons: "Less announcements/movie interruptions"
Cons: "Seats did NOT recline, which seems to be a pretty poor planning for a red eye flight."
Pros: "The entire thing, food, service, and ..."
Cons: "More room in each seat"
Cons: "Quick 30 minute flight"
Cons: "They did great. The weather was poor, so it felt more like a roller coaster ride home. Made it safe and sound. Would’ve been nice to get an update is speaker about change in weather and the rough ride in store when the whole ride was so turbulent."
Pros: "The cockpit crew waited to turn the plan off until the Footbal playoff game was finished. I thought that was very considerate of them."
Cons: "Seats were right but that I guess is to be expected these days."
Pros: "Direct flight"
Pros: "I will say that this has been the best flight my husband and I have ever had. The crew members were very nice and helpful. This has been the smoothest flight we have ever had as well."
Cons: "The landing was somewhat frightening."
Cons: "Left 30 minutes late from SLC."
Cons: "The monitors kept on freezing"
Pros: "Getting off the plane"
Cons: "This flight was fine compared to the first"
Cons: "The lines were so long in Palm Springs that myself and about 8 other people missed the flight. I arrived 1.5 hours before my boarding time."
Pros: "The free TV was nice."
Cons: "A tiny bag of pretzels is a stingy snack. Aeromexico gave us a croissant with two pieces of cheese,applesauce and a square of chocolate."
Pros: "Well, the seats and the lavatories are smaller than ever. And I am quite petite."
Pros: "The snack was nice."
Pros: "Flight was on a 787! Great plane"
Cons: "Food was mediocre for an international long haul fight, and was served by a completely indifferent staff! My prearranged seat choices were switched to a no recline rows and rebooking after a unnecessarily missed connection became 7 step comedy of errors ,aside from quality aircraft this felt like a budget operation."
Cons: "Due to the earthquakes, the film festival I was going to was cancelled. Ten days prior to the flight I called AeroMexico to cancel and they said there would be a cancellation penalty, which was fine. When I tried to redeem my credit, they said there was also an additional "No-show fee" even though I called to cancel 10 days prior, which left a total of $70 credit after all their penalties. I called and emailed to complain but they did nothing but pass me to someone else who was equally unhelpful. I will never fly AeroMexico for any reason in the future."
Pros: "Great flight attendant great people"
Cons: "Basic economy has way too many restrictions"
Pros: "For a short flight, they gave it drinks and snacks."
Pros: "Flight was comfortable. Short, sweet, and landed before I knew it. Boarding was a smooth process."
Cons: "The flight crew and service on the plane was fine. My biggest complaint was at the baggage drop off at the airport, where there was quite a long line without any crew members assisting us. A five to ten minute wait is fine, but a fifteen minute wait, with only three crew members compared to the other airlines? By the time I dropped off my baggage, the other airlines were finished with their customers, and there was still quite a line behind me."
Pros: "Crew was courtesy"
Cons: "1hour delay from departing LAX runway - not good"
Pros: "Smooth, easy, still long"
Cons: "Still long"
Pros: "Flight was delayed for over 6 hours. Not an ideal way to spend the day."
Pros: "Customer services"
Pros: "Clean & new plane, some of the stewards were fine, good pilot"
Cons: "head of the stewards was nasty with everybody, not polite and passive aggressive. Very poor food selection, even if you paid for it."
Pros: "Availability of flight. Quick flight, on time"
Cons: "Lay over"
Cons: "At least 10, including my entertainment systems didn't work as soon as we took off. A 4 1/2 hour flight cross country with no entertainment, very disappointing. The crew was very unorganized, they couldn't even figure out how to give drinks and snacks in an efficient manner with initially skipping several rows without asking about either. Seat headrests were not adjustable up and down."
Pros: "Everything went very smoothly, I didn't eat anything but the snacks are fine. I don't think there is any "entertainment" unless you pay for it but that's okay."
Pros: "Personnel and crew handled the problem in a professional manner doing everything in their power to make the best of a bad situation. Another plane was provided within a reasonable time frame."
Cons: "Four hour delay. Boarded and then being told after 40 minutes that the problem was not fixable."
Pros: "The staff onboard was friendly and attentive. They made every effort to make sure I had whatever I wanted. Boarding was quick and easy. The onbaord entertainment system had a large selection and I was never without something worth watching."
Cons: "The first class accommodation isn't as good as advertised. The seat is supposed to completely recline allowing you to sleep. Unfortunately if you're 6 foot or taller there isn't enough room. Other airlines like Emirates gives you more room in their business class so it's disappointing to see United 1st class is so cramped. The screens for the onboard entertainment system in first class are lower quality then those used in coach."
Pros: "Staff were all polite"
Cons: "The least amount of legroom I've ever had. The most cramped I've ever been and I'm 5'2 and fly a lot. Also for a 5 hour flight, I should not have been as uncomfortable as I was. There's less cushion than before."
Pros: "My Delta flight was a code share with Virgin Atlantic. A pleasant flight overall with my first impression being an airline with current popular music playing in the background and flight attendants cheerful. Since I was traveling alone, I opted to not purchase my seat prior to my flight date, instead I chose my aisle seat within 24 hours for free. I checked in my one bag and found out I had pre-checked so my security check went so smooth at the new terminal 2 at LAX. Looking forward to my flight back on June 15."
Cons: "Had a toddler behind me crying and screaming the last 40 minutes of landing into Heathrow because she couldn't sit on her mother's lap and made it quite unbareable for all of us in the vicinity. Wondering if there was an alternative way to handle the situation."
Pros: "We barely got on the flight."
Cons: "The boarding "red shirt" saved us. We are a band on tour and thanks to her we made the gig"
Cons: "No entertainment - just a long boring flight. Should have some sort of entertainment for the longer flights."
Pros: "Good movies"
Cons: "Unsmiling, miserable staff. Seats like concrete. Cheap and nasty snacks"
Cons: "Access to LGA has become too problematic due to the construction. We will use other airports on our future trips to NY"
Cons: "I paid for the upgrade to Delta Comfort Plus for an aisle seat & for some reason they reassigned our seats and I got Putin a middle seat. It was not what I paid for and it was very uncomfortable. If people pay to upgrade to specific seats we should. It be reassigned to whatever seat they want to put us in."
Pros: "Smooth flight, friendly attendants. We had exit Sears so great legroom."
Cons: "Sears not assigned until boarding."

Very narrow seating

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Too crowded for this isolation time also the guy across the aisle from me (about12 inches away) took off his mask as soon as he sat down and did not put it on until he got off. The flight attendant said NOTHING. You can do better."
Cons: "Flute gate changed 35 min prior to boarding to a new gate that was a 10 min walk. That was stressful. The flight ended up being delayed 20 min as well."
Cons: "Very old cramped plane. I actually overheard the airplane say that it was tired and wanted to be replaced with one made in this millenium..."
Pros: "This crew was amazing"
Pros: "Once getting on the plane, experience was great. 15/10 on the inflight entertainment option. Was not expecting that luxury and was super grateful! Flight attendants were amazingly sweet and helpful. (Cali and Stephanie)"
Cons: "the gate was never posted on the mobile boarding pass, online, the tv next to the gate or the airport boards (it was never posted anywhere). Everywhere said TBD or was blank when everything else was filled. I only accidentally found the gate because I knew my flight should be boarding so I went to all the lines and it ultimately was the unmarked one and I had to ask the person at the desk. I almost missed this flight because the lack of communication on what gate the flight was from."
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Late boarding, WiFi didn’t work. Small seats. Why do I continue to fly you guys?"
Pros: "This seats on this flight were very comfortable."
Cons: "Delayed boarding due to mechanical issue with a lens on one of the plane's exterior lights."
Pros: "CREW WAS GREAT AT BOARDING GATE AND IN FLIGHT."
Cons: "LEFT 30 MIN LATE, DUE TO CONNECTING FLIGHT."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "They need more space and better food"
Cons: "Less boarding groups"
Pros: "Comfortable seat"
Cons: "Umm, maybe a tv in the headrest"
Pros: "Ease of bording"
Cons: "Your seats are small and you never turn the fasten seatbelt light off"
Pros: "Plane was new and clean..good leg room."
Cons: "Being told to shut window blinds and spent most of the journey in darkness. No hot drinks. Long gaps between cold drinks. Staff not very friendly."
Pros: "None"
Cons: "Long delay"
Pros: "Everything"
Pros: "Worst experience. Crew members did not show up on time which pushed everything 2 hours behind and lost connecting flight. Crew said there was customer service available but no one at airport to help. Will never fly AA again"
Cons: "If the airline decides to cut cost by giving 2 lousy biscuits to each passenger, why not cut it all out? That saves the crew the troubles too."
Pros: "The films available were okay, but we had to watch them on our phones."
Cons: "Moved our gate twice, both times the AA boarding crew laughed at the anger they’d caused among the upset passengers. They were also not vocal about the gate changes until pressed. We were asked to sit by the emergency gate as able and willing humans unaware it was placed beside the center bathroom.. so unpleasant."
Pros: "Staff very professional, everything else went as planned. That's all one needs."
Cons: "We had a hard time hearing (clarity of speech) announcements over the intercom at the gate & on the plains (specially when the captain spoke). Nothing life threatening, but wouldn't want to miss something important."
Pros: "The plane was far more comfortable than the one we flew on from Boston to Rome."
Pros: "N/a"
Cons: "Read above."
Cons: "The only problem that I had with my flight is that my luggage did not arrive on the same flight. Possibly due to my connecting flight from DCA to JFK. Both American Airlines and British Airways reassured me that it would be at Gatwick Airport when I arrived. Unfortunately, it did not. It took approximately four days to get my luggage. This was definitely a lessons learned."
Pros: "Courteous and efficient service, good communication from employees."
Cons: "Rude passengers reclining all the way without notice."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "We landed at a different airport than we were supposed to and no announcement was made. We weren’t updated at all! When we finally landed in bogota we missed our connections and couldn’t get on another flight for 14 hours"
Pros: "Smooth flight, on time!"
Cons: "No food offered on 1st leg, but it was on the menu card."
Cons: "No leg room"
Cons: "They ran out of choices."
Pros: "Got to watch movies"
Cons: "Couldn't eat the meal both had dairy no other choice"
Pros: "On time Friendly attendants Great service Mike in First Class was awesome"
Cons: "No complaints"
Cons: "1. Weather was bad and airlines knew it without sending out caution email or text messages early to passengers like Delta so that passengers can prepare for coming situation, either re routing flight or mental prepare for flight delay 2. Poor coordination - called to change flight and got confirmation via phone only found out in ticket counter that was not valid. 3. Luggage counter was bad, giving wrong picking luggage location caused two hour waiting in airport for nothing."
Cons: "Flight delayed 3 times, mini plane."
Pros: "Flt time!"
Cons: "Boarding announcer was rude"
Pros: "I slept the whole way and we even landed a bit early. It was a great flight."
Cons: "No complaints!"
Cons: "The seats are too tight."
Cons: "Horrible experience in the ground system, they charged me $240 for my bags and the staff are really confused."
Cons: "I'm still limping slightly from not having hardly any legroom period but it's just a fact that you're playing too not designed for people like me"
Pros: "I like that it's open seating."
Cons: "I don't like how there's not de-boarding procedure. Some people try to just rush off the plane."
Cons: "The crew really seemed like they didn't like their job, and didn't want to be there. I felt kind of bad for them, nobody should be stuck in a job they hate."
Pros: "The flight was quite horrible in all sorts of ways. They had no in-flight entertainment for a 10 hour flight. Food service was very underwhelming in comparison to most other major airlines'. All this was still fine but it was the horrible service I received from their baggage department that made this trip the worst I've ever had. My baggage came 7 days late and I received the worst service through their baggage customer service. Must say that I'm very disappointed in American Airlines."
Cons: "We took off with low fuel diverted to DFW then on to lax with no water on board Completely unsat So much for a non-stop flight"
Pros: "Check in Miami Stewards Miami Quito portion"
Cons: "Being 3 1/2 hours late from Quito to Miami Being delayed from Denver to Houston and switch to United to coach seats, they did give us coupons though, but after the fact . Luggage arriving late from Denver, customer service didn't have a clue were the luggage was. As we were leaving to come back next day the luggage, we saw it in a carrousel, and pick it up. Republic flight from New Orleans it's not worth it the business class, very poor service ."
Cons: "The in-flight entertainment was out, and the a/c was barely working-not good for a four hour flight. Instead of addressing the issues the flight crew was more interested in chatting with each other. No pre-flight drink service in first class, they rarely even passed through the canin."
Cons: "It is disgraceful flying such a tight configuration on a transatlantic flight. AA should be ashamed."
Pros: "See above. Worst flight in 60 years of flying.Their systems failed at every point-- changing flights without carrying over seat reservations "Too close to flight time""
Cons: "Attitude of many employees--" tough on you, suck it up. stuff happens". poor communication re flight change, rejection of AA Advantage Mastercard to pay for baggage check and get boarding pass and seat assignment. Rerouted me by 200 yards to TSA checkpoint I could see was 30 yards away. When flight arrived in SFO the arrivals board never showed it and there was no carousel shown for checked baggage. I finally had to go to customer service, where attendant just pointed to my bag on the floor with lots of others from the flight, shrugged, no apology, and chewed her gum a little faster before turning her back."
Pros: "Polite and professional"
Pros: "That we didn't crash."
Cons: "We couldn't go to the bathroom. That's right, you read that right, the bathroom on the plane was broken. Also, we left ATL 30min late."
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Flight attendants vocally expressed how badly they hated heir jobs. Their service echoed their sentiments."
Pros: "The crew was reassuring when we were running to board and helped my husband, who had trouble walking."
Cons: "Seats are very uncomfortable. I was charged for my personal bag"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Don’t charge for food"
Pros: "It was good"
Cons: "All those extra fees even for a drink!!! First time on frontier not sure if I would use it again"
Pros: "Incredibly uncomfortable seats. Packed like sardines with no opportunities to move."
Cons: "Make the seats more comfortable with more leg room"
Pros: "Crew was nice flight was 2hrs late"
Cons: "Delayed Baggage took 45 min to arrive"
Pros: "Seat was very uncomfortable"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "The flight was comfortable"
Cons: "The flight was delayed and that was a big inconvenience"
Pros: "Crew was awesome ! The flight crew I would fly with anywhere, anytime. No mucking around ,get in , buckle up, we’re outta here . I love that ."
Cons: "I’m 6’2” , any vehicle other than my R1 is just not super comfortable. Even my truck and i love my truck . But anything over 2 hours starts wearing on my long legs . Thats my issue . Nothing any airline can do for that . I prob need to opt for 1st class next time n see ."
Pros: "I made it safely to and from my destination."
Cons: "The seats are very uncomfortable, lack padding and back support."
Pros: "The staff was nice"
Cons: "The check-in process. The upcharges on everything. Barebones flight."

Cons: "5 hour delay, horrible last minute communication. Second time in a row this has happened with Frontier. Will never fly them again at any price."
Pros: "Boarding was fast, Polite staff, Very nice crew."
Cons: "Due to all the delays on my first flight I just decided To re-book a different flight back I will never fly with this company again terrible the only reason they get a star because I can’t give them nine terrible"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Late. Late.Late Staff seemed rude"
Cons: "Too bad"
Pros: "Quick and easy boarding"
Cons: "No room no entertainment for a somewhat long flights"
Pros: "Relatively cheaper than the other options I had to choose from but you can see why it is cheaper. The flights attendants where very nice and respectful."
Cons: "As someone who is tall, the seats are rather small. Boarding passes had to be checked manually but that didn't cause many issues."
Pros: "The crew was good and the the seats were semi comfortable. The price round trip was good."
Cons: "4 hour delay going to our destination because of a "scheduling issue" Unacceptable. We almost missed our car rental. Also, on a side note, Do not use Fox Rent a Car in Orlando, our car had mechanical issues and there was also blood splatter on the roof, disgusting! And going home we were scheduled to be on time and we were boarded on time and about to leave the gate and they told us that they found a dent in the plane which later on we found out was a hole in the engine. So we were taken off the plane and wasn't for another 4 hours that we got another plane. Overall not impressed. We did receive a 100 dollar voucher each for both delays but honestly would never use this airline again."
Cons: "Flight to SAT was cancelled and they put me in this one to AUS next day, Instead of SAT."
Cons: "3 hours delayed"
Pros: "The crew were kind and efficient and the planes were clean and well maintained."
Cons: "No entertainment on the flights, but that is to be expected for the price."
Pros: "For the price it is a great value. The first time I flew with Frontier I didn't know what to expect. This time I was prepared and had an enjoyable flight."
Cons: "I would like a bigger tray table and a charge station for my phone."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "No consideration for customers"
Pros: "I liked that there were no issues with my flight I was able to just board , get there and have no problems"
Cons: "I don’t like the fees for everything. It kinda just made me annoyed that there were fees attached to everything that doubled the cost of my flight."
Cons: "Hidden fees, broken planes, and cheap motel vouchers. Lowest class airline I've ever been on."
Pros: "Easy check in, on time, friendly staff"
Cons: "On the way back no free water"
Cons: "Flight originally schedule for 6:30 am - did not depart until after 8:00 am due to multiple delays."
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "Absolutely nothing else"
Pros: "Staff was efficient, boarding and exiting the plane was quick and easy. Size of overhead bins seemed to be larger than other planes I've been on."
Cons: "I didn't like that soft drinks were not included... And I prefer having a small TV to help pass the time was they do on other airlines."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "We had already paid the luggage fee and just needed to drop off our bags for our MCO to DEN flight. It started with no curbside check-in. Incredibly poor service at ticketing/baggage check. A mass of people. No directions. Even employees (when asked, not one volunteered any information) didn't know which line was which. Only four people working the counter. And then the airline called for people leaving on a flight after ours and brought those passengers to the front of the line. When we got to the front of the line the employee's response was "You need to be here three hours before the flight." For a midweek domestic flight? ATA treated us like this once. They're long gone. Goodbye Frontier."
Cons: "Seats and spacing need work. Sardines. But ok for the cost."
Pros: "Great service from beginning to end from airport staff to crew staff. Very helpful and accommodating."
Cons: "Should have flown Virgin America."
Pros: "Very friendly crew made flight easy."
Cons: "It's a economy airline get what you pay for."
Cons: "I've only experienced a lower-frills airline in Russia. Pay extra for soda, crackers. Thin padding on seats. Stewardess had "exciting news" for us all, proceeded to try and sell us a credit card for 7 minutes. Once the $40 extra per carry-on (not clearly indicated at purchase) is added in, you can fly a first-world airline for the same price and get a Coke. Never again, obvo."
Cons: "My departing flight ended up being delayed for over three hours. I did not receive one single notification letting me know it would be delayed. Apparently Frontier's system went down. I understand that is out of their control. However, as I sat at the gate, I was not given a SINGLE update as to why or how long our flight was delayed. The gates next to us seemed to be getting updates about every 30 minutes. The flight was supposed to depart at 9:15pm and the FIRST update they announced was past midnight saying that there was a mechanic on the plane fixing a broken seat. We ended up leaving at 12:15 am. I did not get to my hotel in Portland until about 2 am. It was by far the most frustrating experience I've ever had with an airline. I've been a frequent flyer of all airlines for over 20 years....."
Cons: "The 5 minute frontier credit card flight attendant commercial has got to go."
Pros: "The smooth landing."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats and noisy tray tables."
Pros: "They were on schedule."
Cons: "They lost my checked bag and exhibited poor communication between members of the baggage team. They lost bags from more than one flight. I filled out a lost baggage form and went home. At that point I had to call them repeatedly over 3 hours before they would answer the phone. Finally they said they had the bag and would deliver within 6 hours. Right now it is the next morning and the bag is not yet delivered. The boarding process had me--with a window seat--board AFTER the 2 other people in my row got seated."
Cons: "Explore the frontier of fees!"
Pros: "Crew was nice, but very uptight about wearing a seatbelt, not standing in line to use the bathroom, not changing seats, etc."
Cons: "I booked tickets with this airline for the first time because prices were significantly cheaper than with other airlines. However, I didn't realize I would have to pay $45 for carry on luggage, pay extra if I did want a seat in the middle, and even pay for soft drank! After factoring in all those things, it would have been a lot cheaper to use a different airline. Plus, it was by far the most uncomfortable airplane I have ever been on. No leg room, small seats that do not recline and have no cushion. Terrible experience!"
Pros: "Leg space."
Cons: "Charged for every little thing. Didn't even get complimentary snacks or drinks. Prices ridiculous for food and drink. Seats were not comfortable. Neck was sore. Won't be flying this airline again."
Pros: "Boarding was fast"
Cons: "When the cost of the ticket is displayed it doesn't include the extra money you have to pay each way to get a seat, every single seat costs extra money, why not just include it in the price. Then even carry on bags cost an extra $30 each way, if you get the cheapest seats and carry on a bag, your flight ends up being $100 extra from what was displayed."
