Way off schedule, way to tight of space, no way to sleep being such a late flight! As far as a beverage, they were out of everything!! Nice air line for quick trips,but to fly for 4 hrs at night from leaving at 12;00am, just impossible to sleep or really relax.

Okay 5.3

Boarding was smooth and fast. The travel time was a bit faster than predicted too.

With lack of reclining seats and no complimentary snacks or drinks at all, the comfort scale is lacking. Even the tray tables were replaced by miniature, undersized, pieces. Even with the discounted prices, it’s hard to want to fly with them again.

Nothing was good about this airline with the exception of the baggage crew that finally helped me in Washington Ronald Regan Airport

My flight out of Portland was canceled and it took hours to rebook. I had to fly American Airline to Washington DCA where I roamed the airport at 9pm looking for someone from United. The crew in Portland ME told me the gate person would have a hotel for me.... The baggage crew had to help me.

The flight crew was great and it was a very smooth landing.

Had to pay extra for seats so we could sit together, near the front of the plane (not really, and no bathroom nearby, very small seats with zero legroom). we were delayed twice (40m then 1h10m) then told to go to a different terminal because now our flight WAS leaving on time! so we hauled over there only to be delayed again several times. we know it was a weather thing, but just wish there was more accurate info about when we would actually take off. seats on outgoing flight from SFO to CLT were GREAT, very roomy, comfortable. Coming back- not so much.

I am used to flying Frontier because of cost but recently traveled Delta and boy did I feel completely spoiled! Not only did my other half get our bags for free due to his status with Delta but the amenities they offer and the comfort of the economy seats compared to other airlines is a major difference. As a chronic pain patient, if I can find a Delta flight for a little more, I will be booking with them for sure! Highly recommend them!

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller.
At KAYAK we don’t set the prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car rentals can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find, on occasion, that certain prices are no longer available.
