Pros: "It’s not American, United, or Delta."
Cons: "The Gogo Internet access was much worse than non-existent, causing me to pay and waste literally hours trying to get a single flight search done on [This idiotic form is broken—the search engine that starts with “Kaya”], and now I have to waste more time and effort to demand a refund from Gogo."
Pros: "Good communication re: the delay, comfy seats, super friendly gate staff, great free movie selection"
Cons: "Not sitting at the gate on the plane for 2+ hours:("
Pros: "The crew did very well. The seats could have been a little more comfortable, the lumbar could have been a bit more stiff for lower back support, the arm rest up and down function did not work, and a little more space between rows and seats would have made it more comfortable."
Cons: "The seats could have been a little more comfortable, the lumbar could have been a bit more stiff for lower back support, the arm rest up and down function did not work, and a little more space between rows and seats would have made it more comfortable. The bathroom was too narrow."

Pros: "Great crew as usually"
Cons: "Hated ORD"
Pros: "Everything went smooth and was great besides the boarding."
Cons: "Boarding seemed to take quite quite awhile, not sure what the deal was but once we were boarded they kicked it into high gear"
Cons: "Dog allowed to sit next to me. It should be ina crate or at least on the lap of the owner"
Pros: "Had the chance to watch interactions with boarding attendants and other passengers and flight crew. Was always very informative and friendly to passengers, flight crew and ground crew and always seemed informed on what was going on. Flight was great and stewardess' were super friendly and helpful."
Cons: "N/A"
Cons: "Auxiliary generator broken so plan got hot very quickly. Flight was 2.5 hrs delayed due to another mechanical failure. And then once we were in air they generously notified us that the WiFi was broken. Utter garbage."
Pros: "Seats, movie selection, drinks"
Cons: "No headphones available both ways and my AirPods don’t work with system. Flight attendants this leg were not so friendly."
Pros: "I love Virgin America and was surprised I was getting on one of their planes. I later found out Alaska bought VA out. The moon lighting and easy access to food/drink choices on touch screen is a plus."

Pros: "Flight was efficient and smooth, attendants were all very kind, we arrived early, and my bags made it intact."

Pros: "Alaska airlines much better than United or American in terms of friendly service, wifi and battery charge, and entertainment options"
Pros: "Friendly staff, comfortable seats"
Cons: "The flight attendant went on and on and ON about how turbulent air was reported ahead, just because we're in a smooth stretch doesn't mean we're out of it yet, and so on. Must have been every 10-20 minutes. She just would not stop talking; while her voice was fine in person, over the PA it sounded like a cheese grater taken to my inner ear. I barely slept that flight; it was miserable."
Pros: "Good customer service and comfortable plane"
Cons: "Sat for an hour before take off."
Pros: "Seats had slightly more leg room"
Cons: "Seriously a coffee pot running hot water kept us on the ground another 45 minutes to an hour, very frustrating. There was one flight attendant Jordan that just made me uncomfortable she seemed rude and short even with her co workers. The food looked like it wasn't worth it on flight. Over all this experience made me second guess booking through Alaska and I'm going with the rei credit card instead too."
Pros: "Alaska never disappoints us. We lucked out with a 1/2 full flight from Chicago, so had lots of room. Each of us got a window. Friendly crew and desk staff. Timely return of checked luggage. All good."
Pros: "Professional flight attendants"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Crew was very helpful and entertaining. We left about 5 minutes late yet arrived early. 2 rounds of drink service and cookies for about a four hour flight. Tablets available for rent as well as wifi. Would fly Alaska Airlines again"
Pros: "check in at ohare was super easy. Also no security line. Friendly Staff."
Cons: "After push back we waited for about half an hour before we moved to the runway."
Pros: "I try to book Alaska when I can, they have good leg room for a taller person and their baggage fees are not outrageous like Spirit. You can tell the crew is not completely miserable doing their jobs and treat you like a human most of the time."
Pros: "First time flying Alaskan. Out of all the US-based airlines I flew with, Alaskan was the cleanest, friendliest, and quickest."

Pros: "Crew was wonderful"
Cons: "The cabin was to hot. Was sweating the majority of the flight."
Pros: "First off Bonnie at the boarding gate was phenomenal , She has an amazing disposition ( especially at 5:00 in the morning ) she greeted each and every customer by name and with a smile ! Our flight was delayed for 2 hours as we sat at the gate while problems were fixed . The Captain made sure he kept us informed as each problem occurred and was fixed . The rest of the flight crew remained patient and attentive , which of course kept all the customers onboard calm and patient as well . My daughter just moved to Seattle and if this is the norm for this airline I will continue to use them for my future visits ! Elizabeth"
Cons: "Can I have a refund? My flight has been delayed 3 1/2 hours and then they add another delayed flight to leave from my gate ahead of us. Wonderful."
Cons: "My initial flight was at 0800; I got to the gate before 0800 and was told I couldn't board the flight even though it was still at the gate and was still before the flight time. I had to pay to rebook my flight, spent over $200 in rides to and from airport, had additional parking fees and was several hours late to work. I have many family members who work in flight service so I understand that employees don't like to re-do paperwork; however, being there before the flight time and being denied cost a lot of work time and money. I have always had great experiences with Alaska so this one was quite a disappointment compared to their usual great service. :("
Pros: "Snacks are good and crew is very friendly. Kept us up to date with arrival times. Would fly again with Alaska"
Cons: "With delta, the movies are free. Didn't like that I had to pay for certain entertainment on Gogo"
Cons: "We were asked to exit the plane at Tarmac and I was traveling with 2 little children. There were a lot of stairs to get off the plane and then walk back to terminal and then a lot of stairs were there to get back to terminal. I was hurting in my knee and my kids ears were hurting badly because the pressure was not controlled while landing. It was a very bad experience and I will definitely think twice about flying Alaska again."
Pros: "New equipment"
Cons: "Sparse food."
Pros: "Seats were not bad - headrests actually fit my head right!"
Pros: "Great service and extremely friendly staff. Brand new plane. More economy legroom then other carriers"
Pros: "I liked the seats and comfort, nice crew an allt that."
Cons: "That we were late. I wasn't their fault cause it was because of the weather, but it made me stressed and I couldn't relax."
Cons: "A child crying the whole trip behind my seat. No effort by mother to stop child from crying"
Pros: "After we got off the airplane, the flight attendants went out of their way to help a woman who had trouble understanding English find and get to the baggage claim. The service and kindness exemplified by the staff really made the whole experience wonderful."

Flight was cancelled right before boarding

The Pilot were very professional to Explain what direction the plan will take to get La gaurdia .That what I like best 👌👍5*

Cons: "It’s very hard to hear the flight attendants and pilots announcements. There was a loud buzzing that overwhelmed the voices."
Cons: "Took 20 min on the run way before deplaning at the gate. Luggage took 15 minutes to come. No entertainment."
Cons: "My daughter was booked on this itinerary and was finishing her last leg of journey. Complete ticket was booked thru Delta Airlines. Her flight from Amsterdam to New York today operated by KLM, was delayed by few minutes. And Delta flight from JFK to Cleveland DL4084 was preponed by airlines. Result was my daughter was not allowed to board the aircraft. Worst was yet to come. Your staff at the gate offered her a flight to Cleveland for next day at 3:30 pm??? Means around 24 hours later. Is this how you behave with a girl of 19 years, asking her to stay at the airport. She was refused Hotel and Lounge stay by your team!!! Is this what you call customer services??? Obscene services is what I would like to term it as!!! My daughter asked them to give this is writing, which was refused to her. Why are your people scared to put it in writing if everything that you are doing is right by the Law??? I was left with no other option but to book her on American Airlines flight today departing at 9 pm to ensure that little girl doesn’t have to spend close to 24 hours at airport by paying $423. Who is going to bear the loss of money and mental torture that your team has given to me and my daughter???? I shall be awaiting your response as to what do you have to say to this pathetic attitude of your team. Rajesh Mendiratta Sent from my iPhone Rajesh"

Cons: "No issues."
Pros: "The crew at the airport was very courteous and helpful."
Cons: "No food; not even offered water; I asked a Delta employee about our seats and she was very unprofessional (mind you I'm traveling with kids and my boarding pass said that seats were to be assigned at the gate)."
Pros: "I can’t make it in mexico city on tuesday, wednesday’s performance had to be cancelled and we need to pay the cancellation fee 11500 mexican pesos, please reimburse on the credit card"

Cons: "The child behind me kicking my seat"
Pros: "Got to destination safely and on time"
Cons: "Rude flight attendant, tight seats"
Pros: "The flight was barely half full so we were able to spread out and I was able to enjoy an exit row seat with no neighbors."
Cons: "The seats are still narrow even in comfort class and I’m 5’11” 175lbs so by no means overweight."
Cons: "We waited 3 hours for the tarmac in Seattle On Christmas"
Cons: "Again, not enough leg room. Also, our luggage did not make the connecting flight and we didn't get our bags unit the next morniing - late."
Pros: "The staff was was very accommodating to myself and my 19 month old daughter"
Cons: "Long delay"
Pros: "No delay and the flight was ahead of the schedule (arriving)."
Cons: "The airplane was too old and seats were too crowded."
Pros: "Gate agents kept us very informed and provided snacks."
Cons: "2-hour long delay"
Cons: "The WORST experience of my life. My flight was delayed 12 hours overnight due to "weather" and since it was reportedly because of uncontrollable weather delta didn't have to do anything for me so I slept in the JFK airport overnight, they wouldn't even give a $59 pass to their sky miles club for the afternoon. It felt like an easy excuse so they wouldn't have to do anything since there were other airlines still flying out of JFK and to go CLE before my rescheduled flight which makes me believe it wasn't all weather. Since the flight was delayed 12 hours instead of being cancelled they wouldn't let me switch to a different airline either. Then, in the morning when it was rescheduled to it was again delayed because they first couldn't find a captain and then couldn't find a fort mate. We finally took off and arrived in Cleveland only to wait another 30 minutes for a gate and a ground crew that they couldn't find. I will never fly delta again."
Pros: "Left reasonably on time, arrived a bit early, able to find overhead storage for my roll-on, even boarding in Zone 3"
Cons: "Very tightly packed; minimal comfort for the flight."
Pros: "On Time"
Cons: "Seating in ecomony class is very tight, restricting, and uncomfortable."
Pros: "No compensation"
Pros: "The flight attendants made the safety briefing extremely lively and personal, a wonderful break from the normal tedious process. The rest of the flight was quiet, uneventful, and pleasant in part due to their good nature. I cannot have gluten or soy, and I was brought a complimentary bag of potato chips that were gluten free - the one and only time this has happened! I hope to fly with this crew again someday."
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that I didn't get my luggage with me when I arrived to casablanca as I lived 4 hours away from the casablanca. I have to come back the next day to get my luggage. I was very mad about it.plus I noticed one of my luggage has been damaged so now I have to buy another one because I can t use it. It was disgusting."
Pros: "The flight crew was nice and polite. They served drinks and snacks in a timely manner while on the flight."
Cons: "Flight was scheduled to leave early, the plane arrived, but they couldn't turn the plane around fast enough. We left the gat late, then pilot said we would still be arriving half an hour early. We arrived about 45 minutes late, and that was a problem because our connecting flight was due to depart now in 15 minutes. Lightning forced the airport to shutdown, which was great, we had a chance to catch our flight, but we were stuck in the airplane, and we couldn't get to our gate until the all-clear. I know this is not Delta's fault, but they did arrive quite late on a flight that, according to them, would be early. They also never communicated to the other flight that there were several passengers catching that connection. So by the time we had ran to catch our connection they had closed the ramp. Lightning hit again, and they shutdown the airport once again, so the airplane was still at the gate for about an hour, and they did not allow the 20+ passengers to board that plane, which was right there. So frustrating. The only thing that saved it was that our new flight was the new airbus, and although it left an hour and a half later, the comfort level was phenomenal."
Pros: "It was only a 30 minute flight."

loved the upgrade!!!!

Pros: "The crew were wonderful and understanding and good sports."
Cons: "There were problems as soon as the plane got to the gate. After the passengers got off the plane, the man at the counter came on the P.A and said it’ll be a few minutes, they’re catering the plane now from the back to the front. The flight crew still needed to get on a preform safety checks. He apologized again. Then it was 8:40, time to take off and we’re still waiting to even board. The man at the counter said again, thank you for your patience and relayed the same message, only this time the flight attendants were walking away from the gate. Around 9 some lady higher up told the man to announce that the flight crew had timed out and stand by crew was on the way to the gate, said sorry again. A little later the man says sorry, there’s a gate change. You’re going to K6 now. When we get to the new gate it’s almost 9:30pm and while we were all gathered at the gate, the flight crew that supposedly “timed out” showed up and proceeded to get on the plane. Passengers started getting mad and saying we were lied to and to just tell us the truth. Chicago PD started showing up. We finally got on the plane but it would be another 30 minutes before we moved because of issues getting our bags off the original plane. We ended up being almost 2 hours delayed."
Cons: "Delay"
Pros: "The place to charge the phone is easily accessible on the back of the seat in front (as opposed to underneath)."
Cons: "Did not like that I had to check my bag at the gate"
Pros: "Crew was very good."
Cons: "Seat 2L Rocked back-and-forth every time person in seat 1L moved. This was a day flight from Chicago to London so I wasn’t sleeping. I could see if you were sleeping and had to deal with all the seat movement it would not be ideal."
Pros: "Left on time and arrived early"
Cons: "Delayed"
Cons: "Couldn't turn on reading lights the entire 8 hour flight to Hawaii! 8 hour flight and only a wrap to eat. Not even food offered for purchase in the last 7 hours of the flight"
Cons: "Great ! Next time please confirm seats before boarding"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by over 3 hrs! As a result I missed work!"
Pros: "The tv and drinks"
Cons: "Being told why we’re delayed and then not being kept on board for so long once we arrived late"
Cons: "I was bumped off the flight due to weight restriction and moved to a flight 6 hours later, it only took me 4 hours to rent a car and drive home. I am a 210 lb 6ft tall male. I was not the reason for the plane being over weight, I was there before boarding took place they didn't ask and I didn't fly."
Pros: "Everything."
Cons: "Waiting for 30 minutes a Dublin to dock."
Pros: "Outbound, it was on time, plenty of legroom, plenty of good snacks, drinks and food. An enjoyable flight. Score 10.0"
Cons: "Return flight - The flight departed 4 hours late. The seating was so cramped my husband couldn't move his legs at all, never mind try to sleep. The staff members were not smart in appearance, some with long untidy hair, and did not interact with passengers except to hand out food. The food was reasonable. We disembarked feeling like wrecks. Score 2.0"
Pros: "American Airlines Crew, friendly and personable"
Cons: "N/A"
Cons: "Our last 6 flights have all been changed or delayed significantly. Then they loose our bags on a direct flight. Won’t fly America airlines again!"
Pros: "Easy boarding crew were friendly food was hot"
Cons: "Seating was a pain to try and get 2 seats together even though I booked it months in advance very noisy rude people couldn't sleep on a supposed overnight am exhausted"
Cons: "The flight was delayed. The food was not great. There is not a lot of space in these planes, and it was a long flight. There is no power supply."
Pros: "Legroom was great!"
Pros: "The staff was very helpful in assisting nearby patrons, attentive to the people with disabilities, and carried through smoothly."
Cons: "Few staff people were clearly having an off day and seemed very unfriendly and crabby, especially obvious when almost everyone else was so friendly and attentive. Makes them stick out like a sore thumb."
Pros: "It was a very good fight"
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that the gate kept on changed 3-4 times and that it was delayed for an hour"
Cons: "Three hours delay. I paid for a upgrade to first class. But because of the flight change i didn't get to keep my upgrade and I had to beg for a refund. I have had two trips in the past 5 days and all flights have been anywhere from 1 to 3 hours late. Worst experience with AA I have had in a long time."
Pros: "Nothing - the flight from Chicago to Philadelphia was delayed by about 2 hours. Luckily, was able to get the flight switched to a Chicago - London direct flight."
Cons: "The connecting flight from Philadelphia to Manchester would've been missed. So, American Airlines booked the same flight for 24 hours later. Luckily, they offered a different flight. Due to the flight changes, the prepaid ground transportation from Manchester to Leeds wasn't used. Transportation from London to Leeds had to be purchased at a much greater additional expense."
Cons: "I got tranafered to 4 different gates aand my flight was delayed for 3 hrs with no explaination and the staff didn't try to help"
Pros: "Nothing!"
Cons: "I was traveling today with my daughter, who is 6 months pregnant, my 3 1/2 & 18 month old grandsons, my husband & son-in law on an international flight from Chicago to Manchester. I was very disappointed a 757 was used for an international flight! No attempt was made by staff to accomodate our family with a extra seat for the infant, even though there were a large number of rows with empty middle seats (4 of which were directly behind them!) The 1st indication of the beginning of the NIGHTMARE was when the plane arrived in Chicago and overshot the gate, this caused almost an hour delay! (We heard our crew saying "oops" while looking out the window at the plane arriving & then again when they were discussing it would have been faster if the plane had used a different method to get to the gate again.) This was then followed by a mechanical problem with a frozen water valve, requiring us to be de-iced x2! Then we started to taxi out and again had to return because of a hydraulic problem that required repair. I think we were delayed almost 3.5 hours. The crew did bring a round of water during the onground delays, and offered free drinks later in the flight. The icing on the cake was not getting the stroller back at the gate because there were no baggage handlers. I can't tell you how much FUN that was trying to corral a toddler & 3yr old with all our carry-on bags while getting thru customs! Did I mention in our haste to get off that plane we overlooked my daughter's winter maternity coat in the overhead! May be time to switch to the Friendlier Skies of United for our UK travel!"
Pros: "Clean plane. Excellent service. On time."
Pros: "This was a horrendous experience."
Cons: "I've had flights canceled before, but clearly American Airlines/ JFK is not equipped to manage. American Airlines online hung up on me after 24 minutes of being on hold. I waited in line for 2 hours to get on another flight home and the attendant first suggested to fly me to Charlotte then Cleveland where I would arrive a day late after I'd been traveling with my elderly parents for 24 hours. Additionally, once we changed flights and had to go to Newark, it took an hour to print (yes, print) our new itineraries for United and then when the cab should have arrived immediately, we waited 45 minutes. I was displeased."
Pros: "Loved having 2 empty seats next to me so I could stretch out after a very long day of travel."
Cons: "Seats are not very comfortable in any position."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I chose a package on the cheap flights that has a left hand side for choosing number of baggage which invariably inreases fare depending on the number of baggage and i choose 2 and paid for 2 baggage but the ticket came with 1 baggage and i contacted both by phone call, email and your website but did not get any fsvourable response. Had to pay again at the airport for the extra bag. This is highly unfair."
Pros: "The entertainment was good. Lots of choices. Food was about what I would expect for airline food."
Cons: "The seats were terrible. I don't know what it was about them, but I've never had a more uncomfortable flight. My husband had leg cramps for much of the flight and couldn't get comfortable. The rest of the flight was fine, but the uncomfortable seats were a huge minus. We'll probably try to avoid 787s from now on. The window-darkening system was annoying. They darkened the windows when it was dark outside and they darkened the cabin, so we couldn't look out the window. It was dark outside--why the need to darken the windows?? My husband requests window seats so he can look out the window."
Pros: "The crew, the movies, and window seat"
Cons: "Didn't like how tight the flight was. Way too compact and 3 seats near window seats makes it so uncomfortable."
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Pros: "Staff courtesy."
Cons: "When I started this leg of my trip, I was completely exhausted having been in sitting position for almost 24 hours straight. Airline made no concessions for travelers knowing that some were just doing a simple trip and those others whose journey was very long. Narrow seats added to stress and discomfort. Airline policy seemed to be "Give me the money and I will deliver you safely. Period" Humanity seems to be last on airline list. Traveling is seriously grueling and unpleasant for all those not in First Class."
Pros: "The American Airlines crews and people manning the desk erred very professional. Yes, this particular flight was conducted by American for Iberia under a share code. So whatever horror stories you have heard of about European Iberia flights, the one I took was fine. But the airline's crew is being let down."
Cons: "In Chicago, our flight was delayed at least three hours for a "GPS update." The crews said the software wasn't even handshaking. Okay. But I have a feeling this is common, and wish the airline would figure out a way to conduct updates, safely, without impacting everyone's schedule. My wife flew through same connection on the same airline a week later. And her flight was canceled. Maybe for the same issue? Unsure. It could have been a a bad luck streak."
Pros: "It was on time. Crew were very good."
Cons: "Plane seemed very dated. No individual entertainment No USB chargers Not much space"
Cons: "The airline "randomly" selected me for extra security. Even though I have TSA pre-check I was jostled around, sent to multiple security lines without any reasoning and the local Chicago TSA and airport staff didn't seem to know what to do. Once it was figured out I was subjected to what was essentially a cavity search. Again I HAVE TSA-pre-check but apparently that means nothing if an airline flags you. It was an extremely upsetting experience but you were in a situation of either agree to the invasive search or get stranded over 1000 miles from home. I will NEVER fly Iberia again after a cancelled flight and being stranded in the wrong country on the way to my vacation and the horrible security experience on the way back. I seriously may never go to Chicago either after seeing the complete lack of organization and traumatizing personal invasion. I fly a lot for work and have never had such a horrible experience. I would really like to know how many terrorists are caught with these invasive searches and would love to know the justification for sticking your hands inside someone's pants and grabbing their privates after they have already gone through a metal detector AND the body scanner. Especially for someone who has already passed a federal background check to obtain pre-check status. Absolutely ridiculous."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They did not compromise when I couldn't go, I understand no refund but I cancelled a few days after,"
Pros: "Seats quite comfortable. Crew ok."
Cons: "Pitiful food offering and no entertainment at all when on previous 1.5 hour AA flight choice of movies."
Pros: "United airlines canceled a flight last minute that I needed in order to get to my best friends' wedding on time, I usually fly AA but the United flights were slightly cheaper at the time. The options United gave me would have had me missing the wedding, AA had more flights that allowed me to make it in time, considering it was booked 12 hours before take-off, it was decently reasonable and left on time and got in early (imagine that, United). Thank you American Airlines, again!"
Pros: "The crew was very efficient and friendly while handling everyone. Flight was smooth, food was good. I went to the wrong terminal and did not know that the advertised finair flight was actually American Airlines, the AA ticket counter attendant went all out to make sure I made it to the gate. All this with less than an hour before departure."
Cons: "I went to the wrong terminal, the email ticket had finair in large print and in smaller print indicated American. Luckily I was able to literally run and make my flight. Would be better to more clearly indicate actual airline."
Cons: "Dry / borderline rude staff and hostess. Dated plane. Tiny seats. But that is pretty much the baseline of airlines in the US. When will carriers start to take note from International carriers..leaps and bounds ahead."
Cons: "My outbound flight to Manila had an overnight layover in Japan. I asked at the luggage check-in at O'Hare International Airport if they can check it all the way through as I had planned to go outside of the Narita airport for the layover. They told me I couldn't check the luggage all the way through and that I had to pick it up from baggage claim once I land in Narita. From there I had to check-in the luggage again on the same day. When I took my luggage out from baggage claim, I tried to check-in and the counter crew told me I was given wrong information. I had to keep my luggage with me until my flight the following day. On my return flight from Manila and another overnight layover in Narita, the check-in crew at NAIA told me I could check-in my luggage all the way through, and that they also allowed this at my outbound flight to Manila. The check-in crew at O'Hare International Airport gave me wrong information."
Pros: "Free checked bag"
Cons: "2 hour delay No food to buy or drinks"
Pros: "Eventually we made it"
Cons: "Plane was delayed because a door wasn't working (old). Business class entertainment was a tablet that was collected an hour before we landed. Food was very bland."
Pros: "I sat next to a friend I haven't seen in almost a year"
Pros: "The entertainment selection was wonderful."
Cons: "The flight left on time but arrived late by at least 1/2 hour. I am small but the seat was narrow: my neighbors kept on hitting me when they moved. And I think it is terrible to have to pay to reserve almost any seats except for the middle seats."
Pros: "Entertainment system has a good selection"
Cons: "No earphones to listen to the soundtrack on the entertainment system"
Cons: "Where to begin? The pilot suggested we would "probably miss our connecting flight" but not to worry because he would be "moving quickly" through the air. Missed my connecting flight. Ended up stuck in Charlotte with no more flights to Florida. And the airline left my bag in Charlotte. Disaster."
Pros: "Very affordable! Traveling can be difficult, especially from Chicago O'hare - one of the busiest airports in the country - but everything was made easy for me and was a breeze!"
Cons: "No complaints here!"
Pros: "I had my first experience in the Admiral's Lounge at O'Hare and enjoyed it very much."
Cons: "My traveling companion's tray table was disgusting when she folded it down for beverage service. She asked for a wet towel and the flight attendant was snarky but went to get one without even looking or asking to see what the problem was. Her entertainment console wasn't working so they reset it but instead it reset mine (two seats over) they did this again and I let them know it was resetting mine. I was told that I was not in the seat they were resetting for ...I inquired if perhaps they should try to reset mine and see if it would, in fact, fix hers..it did. When she slipped off her shoes the carpet was soaking wet. This was a really crummy, crummy flight."
Cons: "The gate changed twice and the plane was a little cramped and not full. A smaller more spacious plane would have been more comfortable experience."
Cons: "Flight was delayed & cancelled. Unable to rebooked until evening of next day. Was easier to rent a car & drive home"
Pros: "Comfort was great"
Cons: "Mu flight got delayed...but that wasn't in anyone's control so...."
Cons: "Na"
Pros: "Wi-Fi with free entertainment on wireless devices, drink service"
Cons: "Cramped seats, pretzels were kind of bland"
Pros: "Crew really polite and nice"
Cons: "Good flight"
Pros: "I did not like anything abut the trip. I guess if I have to come up with something good it could be that the trip ended without physical death... emotional and psychological death, to be sure, but not physical."
Cons: "The outrageous, unconscionable, customer unfriendly lack of leg room, general torture-like comfort levels of the seating, surly airline employees, vomit comet style landing, and spending enough time driving around the tarmac we probably could have just drove the plane there, skipping flying all together."
Pros: "Nothing, to be honest."
Cons: "Terrible boarding process (boarding groups one and two together for the first time, so even though we were group two priority, we did not get on until the middle of three and no overhead bin space left). There was no snack/beverage service. We did get a tiny bag of pretzels and were supposed to get either water or juice, but we never saw a beverage. Also, my seat's entertainment did not work. The worst was the HORRIBLE TINY ECON SEATS!!! Unless you are a child or a small woman/man, I would avoid this flight if at all possible. I have never been so uncomfortable on a flight, and I fly a dozen times a year for the last 25 years."
Pros: "I liked everything was excellent"
Cons: "There was a 10 minutes delay"
Pros: "My trip started off with airplane problems from the beginning. From my flight being delayed multiple times by air china to the overly packed united to the confusion of the non updated confirmation numbers or the e-ticket number. Even on the day I left upon arriving to the airport my confirmation number they had just given me after all the prior problems still didn't work. Air china had mediocre food with okay entertainment except my headset jack on the TV was broke and I couldn't watch anything. On the last air china flight from Bejing to Bangkok. I couldn't even charge my phone, watch any entertainment and basically was just stuck with no WiFi. Justfly wouldn't compensate for the changes on their end and said I myself would have to ask the airlines for compensation which the.the airlines directed me no where for compensation or even to upgrade my seat. Now I'm finally in Thailand but I'm scared of my return."
Cons: "Everything was really not great. Air china had mediocre food that some of it wasn't bad but other was so so."
Pros: "Captain and crew were brilliant, kept passengers informed throughout as to the delays, as a result all passengers were patient and understanding. Not much more could have been done to improve the experience as the snow and conditions at Dublin airport were out of their hands."
Cons: "Wasted a lot of time for boarding. Not smooth at all"
Pros: "The price was unreal so I had to jump on this, I was able to get on and off with my backpack no problem. The flights were good, captains were very communicative about times, expectations and when turbulence was present."
Cons: "The check in had to be done in person because of the need to check my bag size, I felt a little insulted that I would have to be checked on my honesty. When I got to the check in it was like watching a special forces team measuring and prodding peoples bags to get them in to the little box even when the shapes were the reason they couldn't fit, not the size of the bags. I literally watched someone fit their bag and the attendant take it out and make it misshaped for the box and show how it didn't slide in. I had no issues with my luggage, but that sucked to watch happen to others. The food and drinks came about 10 minutes before the plane landed."
Pros: "On time. Didn't have to wait that long for luggages to come out.."
Cons: "Flight attendant in United just standing idly, doesn't help you with carryons. No free meal for connecting flights with United even though it's meal time unlike when you are in one airlinr all through your international flight."
Cons: "Same as the above"
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "They got my vegetarian food order right"
Cons: "Old airplanes both there and back, we had a choice of a few movies on a TV that we couldn't access on demand so you had to start half way through, and the quality was appalling. We were supposedly promised we could stream onto our devices via wifi but this didn't happen"
Pros: "Nice plane"
Cons: "Hour plus late departing as attendants did not show up to work on time. No coffee brewed on 7:30 AM flight. Probably because of crews late arrival"
Pros: "It got us from a to b but not much more to be said!"
Cons: "The idea of the entertainment system broadcast to your hand held device is fine - it didn't work for me though."
Cons: "Such a downgrade from other airlines! Awful! They board backwards. Usually the back seats board on the plane after the special needs people. Makes more sense, people are out of the way. My water was poured into a cup from a big water battle. I like how Jetblue gives me a personal water bottle and a variety of snack option. I was given a "snack mix" on this flight which was not good. I hated this flight and there were NO televisions, or usb ports to charge phones. Never again. They didn't even have enough room for carry on bags for everyone. Thank god I packed light and didn't need to use that option. Good to know United Airlines has crappy everything."
Pros: "short duration"
Cons: "So short that somehow I didn't get a cup of water..I know they started to serve it but maybe they missed our row, maybe turbulence ended service by then.. I don't know why but I was overheated and very thirsty."
Cons: "Although power was advertised and was present, it did not work."
Cons: "T"
Cons: "Seat and seatbelt to small"
Pros: "Wasn't thrown off"
Cons: "Another delayed flight with United"
Pros: "Boarding was relatively easy and quick."
Cons: "Boarding area/gate was slightly dirty."
Cons: "We reserved wheelchair assistance prior to the flight. We had to wait an extended amount of time to actually get the wheelchair assistance with 5 kids 7 and under. Due to the wait we almost missed our flight, we were literally the last to board the plane. We were hoping to grab some breakfast for the kids as we had a long flight and did not have time to do so because of this delay. This is why we called ahead to reserve the wheelchair. The people checking in did not seem to care about the delay and only told us to be patient. Sad, unfortunate experience with accessibility issues."
Pros: "I appreciated that the captain, although it sounds as though he wasn't originally scheduled for this flight, flew us to Cleveland anyway since the originally scheduled one was delayed. The landing was incredibly smooth, especially given the circumstances/weather."
Pros: "Some of the people I dealt with were nice. All of the flight attendants and pilots were nice."
Cons: "United only had one person working to check people in, and due to a lady with 8+ bags that the only agent had to take 20+ minutes with (while the line stacked up behind us), we ended up missing the first leg of our flight. Told us our bags would be checked all the way through, and they weren't. Checked bag got lost on the way back (again, due to misinformation from United on whether our bag would be checked all the way through), and when we got them back they had obviously been rooted through, with no note left by TSA. I fly often, and this was one of the worst flying experiences of my life."
Pros: "First id like to say i got a cheaper rate on Kayak then i did on United Airlines website savings over 100 dollars. Id also like to say thank you for hooking me up with economy plus seats that include outlets to charge your devices. A+ in my book i even got an exit rox on my way home all to myself! Definitely will be using Kayak in the future."
Cons: "The United Airlines staff inside O'Hare. All but one were very rude to me for no reason. Maybe thats just a Chicago thing to have an attitude with everyone but im pretty sure it was just these 2 individuals."
Cons: "I had a flight from Los Angeles to Cleveland with a stop in Chicago on December 29, 2016; however, both flights were delayed. I am contacting customer care for compensation due to a severe delay for the departure and arrival for my flight from Chicago to Cleveland (Flight 786). I also wanted to report a very disappointing experience with the representatives at 1-800-864-8331. I was supposed to arrive at Cleveland, OH (CLE) on December 29, 2016 by 7:30 PM. However, it was closer to 11:20 PM when we finally arrived. The flight was delayed over an hour for departure when they announced the plane was not even ready and present at the gate. Due to this delay, we were not able to land on Cleveland, OH (CLE) because of snow on the runway. We circled Cleveland for roughly 40 minutes and then got redirected to the Detroit. We would've avoided the snow if the flight departed on time since the snow did not hit Cleveland until the delayed flight was airborne. We then landed in Detroit and spent another hour and a half in Detroit. At this time, I called the representatives at United and requested a refund. The representative completely understood my situation and said I would be refunded the full amount to my original payment method. She also assured me that I did not need a case number and that other representatives would be able to look up this information through my confirmation number. This was not the case when I contacted United again to see the progress on the refund. They said there were no annotations and that they could not provide a refund. They advised me that the previous representative had lied to me. While the flight experience caused me to miss the rehearsal dinner and bachelor party for a close friend I served with in the Army and almost caused me to miss the wedding, I feel very cheated and trashed for being lied to by your employees regarding my refund and its validity. This experience has left a very bad taste regarding United Airline's integrity and values."
Cons: "More than an hour late departure."
Pros: "5 zones with specific lines make so much sense! Worked well. The seats were some of the smallest I have ever had, so not impressed and since I am tall, a bit of a deal breaker. I am normally a delta fan, so won't be switching anytime soon. All else worked fine...a short somewhat turbulent flight so no water/drink service, which is understandable."
Cons: "Seat size and leg room!"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and accommodating, plane was cleanly and comfortable"
Cons: "Snack could use a little work"
Pros: "Crew staff went out of his way to find something for my aisle to snack on when the person next to me asked if there was any snacks on the plane. The plane had to be changed for another plane due to a mechanical issue on the first plane, and the new plane had not been stocked with food after it's previous flight, yet the crew member was able to scrounge up some snacks for us! Also got complimentary directtv - nice, but doesn't make up for not getting home in time yet again."
Cons: "United sucks. I have flown it maybe 10-12 times in the past 2.5 years, mostly back and forth between Chicago and Boston. I have had only 3 round trip flights go without a hitch. Every other trip was delayed. This time 4 hours on my return flight to Boston due to a plane switch, boarding of a new plane to discover a mechanical issue, deboarding, waiting for a new plane, then boarding and sitting on the ground for another 40 min before we were able to take off. I was delayed 1.5 hours on the way to Chicago due to another plane swap (no joke). Still doesn't top but my worst 5 hour delay in Chicago on the way back to Boston because the captain didn't show up. United is atrocious and is my last choice or any airline. Only fly when I'm absolutely forced to now due to no other reasonable choices. They are below delta, JetBlue, American, southwest, and embarrassingly, spirit as well. Terrible."
Cons: "THIS FLIGHT WAS VERY DUSTY AND DIRTY ALONG THE WINDOW SEATS. It looked like no one had dusted in a very long time."
Cons: "In an effort to maximize profit you give up comfort. I bet you could charge more if it were comfortable."
Pros: "Efficient cabin crew."
Cons: "Too many ads on the entertainment monitors that couldn't be turned off."
Pros: "Long day flying already. Many flights to CLE were delayed, but ours was cancelled. The staff was kind enough to get my mom a seat on another flight that day, which was good as she was out of medication after traveling two weeks. 3 of us had to fly standby. The staff said we would automatically be added to the next flight's standby list if we ddin't make it. That was bad information - it didn't happen."
Cons: "Disapointed with the service and lack of accommodation after our flight was cancelled."
Cons: "The flight was very hot and uncomfortable!"
Cons: "We were in Cleveland and our flight got cancelled. We confirmed a flight out of Canton. Drove the hour only to find that flight to be cancelled also. Drive from Canton to Chicago and arrived at about 2 in the morning. We had tried to change our flight to leave two days earlier. The fee for changing flights was more than the tickets were initially but when you cancel it its tough break for us."
Cons: "Delayed for 4 hours."
Pros: "I made it alive"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight was delayed over six hours. No explanation was given as to why and the flight was supposed to arrive at 6:45 and we got in at 12:30. Poor service at the gate and then we got on the plane and sat on the Tarmac for an hour with no explanation again. The air wasn't on and not drinks or snacks were offered for our wait time. a disappointing way to end an otherwise great weekend away."
Cons: "Lack of communication. Kept us belted down for s very long time. Lacked food service, lacked water service till the very end of the lock down. Then we were given the option to leave the plane as the doors were to be disarmed. But if we did the plane could get clearence and leave with no warning. I missed my connecting transportation, had to scrape my weekend plans, currently searching for a place to stay tonight while they locate my bag. I am cold and left my jacket in my bag. The United counter people are blaming it on the weather. I am sure everything was delayed by the laxadaysical baggage loader. The one person ( or lack of help loading the bags on the plane completely altered my travel plans. I requested assistance for hotel only to be told they are full when in fact several are vacant on the Internet. I should of videotaped the baggage loading in Canada, it would of went viral."
Cons: "Seated in the last row of plane and was continuously bumped by flight attendant as she delivered drinks."
Pros: "-Pounctuality"
Cons: "- Horrible food; - Very old airplane. The oldest I ever flew; - The entertainment system was horrible and not worked. We came the whole flight without having access to anything, neither the map of the flight."
Pros: "Delays handled with curtesy and information."
Pros: "The trip had minimal turbulence. The landing was smooth."
Cons: "-The 767 was old. -It did not have any power ports for my laptop or cell phone. -The interior was old and dated, reminiscent of the 1980's. -The TV screen for entertainment seemed to be smaller than a Samsung Note 5. -The seats are unreasonably narrow and not comfortable. -I had an isle seat and my shoulder width is literally wider than the seats. -Every time the isle cart went by, it hit my left shoulder. -The seats in general seating are too small and were cramped. -God forbid if we had to egress out of the plane. -There were no adjustable head rests, like other airlines have. -The Flight Attendant for my section DID NOT make me feel like I was a valued customer, even though I paid over $1500 for flight. -She scolded me for asking "Why," when she TOLD me that I needed to sit in one seat, even though the seat next to me was vacant. She literally treated me like a child. - NOT COOL. Overall, in comparison to my last international flight, I WOULD NOT recommend United. I feel like I paid too much for my experience with United. Aer Lingus has better/newer aircraft, better cabin crew, better entertainment selections to include music and a selection of movies to watch at your convenience, more comfortable seats, provide a better environment, and a better value for your experience. Aer Lingus was also cheaper. So if you are reading this, please shop around if you are considering United to fly."
Cons: "My bag is lost from Chicago to Cleveland. 5 bags needed retagged in Chicago....4 of 5 made it to Cleveland."
Pros: "Crew was great. Plane left and arrived on time."
Cons: "Window seats should load earlier so I don't have to climb over everyone."
Cons: "Mild turbulence"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable for a short trip"
Pros: "Crew was good. Seating not comfortable for me needs to recline and should have movies or vidieo."
Cons: "Better seating and little more space"
Cons: "Poor seats even in premium section. NO recline at all. Miserable for a red-eye flight."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Good flight"
Pros: "Very smooth flight and landing"
Cons: "Unnecessary delay in RSW, further delay to rebalance a full flight (makes no sense), and ran out of common food items."
Cons: "Paid an extra 30 dollars for a stretch seat and it was no bigger than the rest of the seats"
Pros: "Great fight attendants"
Pros: "Attendant courtesy excellent"
Cons: "$45 each way for checked luggage is ridiculous, as is having to pay for coffee. Southwest has equally great service without the added cost."
Pros: "seats were comfortable"
Cons: "we had to pay so much for a drink and chips"
Pros: "Once we started boarding and were on the plane all personnel were very accommodating and got us to our destination quickly."
Cons: "The amount of delays. The departure and arrival times was a major reason I flew with Frontier to begin with, so without that I have little incentive to fly with Frontier in the future. At the check-in counter it seemed unorganized. The automated check-in machines were not working properly and customers were not helped in an orderly line when I had to check-in at the counter."
Cons: "Flight attendant didn't take the time to read the entire certification label on our child's car seat. As a result she made me gate check it (no cost at least)...trying to keep a 2 year old in a seat for 3 hours with a lap belt that doesn't fit tightly doesn't seem like the best option. After we landed and I retrieved the seat, I spoke with the attendant and respectfully pointed out that it was in fact certified for aircraft. She apologized and accepted the feedback."
Pros: "Flight attendants were very nice."
Cons: "I did not order food but was disappointed that a complimentary pop and pretzels were not given."
Pros: "The flight was smooth and everyone was friendly n plane was clean"
Cons: "Someone took my bro Jordan red flip flops and we put them in the suitcase before we checked in are bags cause he changed into tennis shoes and put his sandals in his suitcase.. not happy that are bags wasn't safe ... wish I knew who to call to complain.."
Pros: "The crew and personnel were great!"
Cons: "Don't like the additional carry on fee, had 3 hour plane trouble and had to deboard and wait (which I know things happen but at least could of gave complimentary drink or snack to passengers/children)"
Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "Frontier ingeneral. Very poor customer service, very uncomfortable, no accommodations for taller people with service animal, flight was delayed twice. Won't make that mistake again."
Pros: "Hilarious flight crew- funniest intro and safety tutorial to date."
Cons: "The flight was so cold the entire time and the bathrooms were not kept up."
Pros: "nothing!"
Cons: "Crew never approached us to ask us if we needed anything and most just sat, talked amongst themselves and kept to themselves the entire flight. Seamed disinterested. Crew on incoming flight, 1115 were the worst ever! Female Flight Attendent verbally ridiculed a passenger to the other attendents who was a bigger husky man who was having a difficult time closing his seat belt. Very unprofessional and I will not use your airline again. Another Male Flight Attendant would not wait a few swconds for a passenger to gather his trash, got disgusted, made some type of remark and just turned and walked away. Never returned."
Pros: "Nothing was good."
Cons: "You guys didn't take me to Cleveland when I laid for you to take me to Cleveland so I didn't really like that."
Pros: "Frontiers system is broke, they've been cancelling flights for days and giving people no alternate options to get home for Christmas. They refuse to pay for hotels or cover other airline tickets and will not guarantee their own flights. I watched as they denied an elderly gentleman in a wheelchair on oxygen. They are understaffed and poorly managed. Also don't let the cheap ticket prices fool you - they make back the difference with ridiculous baggage fees and additional charges."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The flight never even happened. The airline just kept giving completely unattainable take off times for over 4 hours. No staff was present the whole time. Just all the passengers sitting around having no idea what's going on. I've flown a lot, this is the worst experience I've ever had"
Pros: "Clean and a smooth ride"
Cons: "There was no complimentary food at all and it was a 3 hour flight"
Pros: "We were forced to wait 15 hours with one delay after another. With one excuse after another. My flight was scheduled for 1001 am. We did not board the plane on time. It was 1145 pm and I did not get to Cleveland at noon, no it was 3 o'clock am with no chance to rent a car to go home I had to call my daughter! And the best part was that my 75 year old wife had to endure this.they would not cancel the flight and allow me to take my wife to a hotle. There were parents with infants as well that was not happy.So to Hume it may concern You have lost several customers because of your failure to take care of your customers!"
Pros: "Stewards were professional"
Cons: "Experience started with sitting on plane for 2 hours or more while maintenance was fixing thermostat, then plane was shut down for 10 mins., then had to wait another 10 for plane to reboot. All this didn't work, so we were told get all your stuff, get off plane then go wait at another gate to reboard another plane...so family plans were ruined since we all arrived 3 hrs later starving, thirsty & tired.. . No compensation was offered for all the inconvenience and we paid a high price for this flight that you had to pay a lot for a carry on. Flight home was at least 2 hr delay. Also not sure why entertainment is on survey since there wasn't any, or food since not even peanuts were offered and comfort??? Noticed less space pet person since my last flight and even the tray was tiny. None of our group of 7 will fly Frontier again, and will make sure everyone who asks about our trip will hear about our awful experience w/Frontier."
Cons: "No entertainment on the plane at all. Also no food. We had breakfast that day and that was it. There was no time to get some food during the stopover in denver, so we ate nothing until 9 pm that day. Employees were kind of rude too for no reason."
Cons: "not only did i have to pay for food but i had to pay $40 for a carry"
Pros: "#1 include the information that seats/baggage/drinks are NOT INCLUDED in the low fare- prior to booking. #2 None of the seats recline except rows 1,2 & 3 Which are $50 plus dollars extra. Pulling a red-eye on this aircraft was horrible."
Cons: "This airline is misleading and the planes uncomfortable."
Pros: "Crew."
Cons: "Flight delay. Condition if terminal in SFO."
Cons: "seats dont recline, no tv 0r radio, water only - all snacks and drinks must be purchased and they are over priced - must pay for any carryon baggage, and seat choice"
Pros: "The seats are very uncomfortable. There is hardly any padding and no room to move. Margaret"
Pros: "It was cheap and on time."
Cons: "They pretend to be a mainstream airline but are the same as Spirit and other budget airlines. This is fine with me-I actually have no problem paying for what I use (carry ons, bags, drinks, etc.) But seperating my wife and I, who booked and bought the tix in the same transaction is a line too far...it left a sour taste in our moths, especially at the start of our trip. The seats are striped down, don't recline (except for the 18 at the front for a premium price. They have focused on cutting cost quite a bit...I have never heard announcements for trash collection by flight attendants (6 times on this flight) this many times.I guess they had to cut the cleaning crew. :) well, to sum it up...it is a budget airlines, despite their promotions of miles, etc., and you get what you pay for."
Pros: "Honestly at first I liked how it appeared to be a newer plane with updated seats but then..."
Cons: "I saw those updated seats and the joke of a tray table that was provided wouldn't even hold my iPad. The staff was apparently new because they couldn't get through one intercom conversation without fumbling through it and when a customer asked how long the flight was the flight attendant didn't know and another passenger had to answer. We were delayed by 2 hours and all because the intercom phone was broken. I know it's a safety hazard but it just wasn't a smooth professional staff that you typically see. One of the three flight attendants was tenure but all I saw was the new girl fumble through everything. I'm hoping she was new...also, we are delayed two hours sitting on the plane, so I know people will give bad reviews about that but there's nothing you can control regarding our safety. It is what it is, I just couldn't stop shaking my head everything they spoke on the intercom how bad they were on it."
Pros: "The security line to the Frontier concourse was unbelievably long, and even though Frontier knew this, it insisted on closing the plane door right on time, at 10 minutes before departure, even though 6 non-related passengers were going to miss the flight. If they had kept the door open 2 extra minutes, all 6 passengers would have made the flight. Ultimately, the plane left 10 minutes late, so 20 minutes after the door closed. I've had enough of Frontier's inflexibility and will gladly pay a higher fare for a different airline."
Cons: "Very hard cramped seats that don't recline, no headrest, flight was delayed, dishonest pricing w very high fees for carry ons"
Pros: "A new lesson in how to be a sardine!"
Cons: "Configuration of the aircraft is unrealistic and the fact that humans are now 4" talker than out 18th and 19th countrrparts. Fuel consumption I understand, but this is just another way corporate America is making people miserable to make money. Not efficiency. Oh and their flight attendants have serious attitudeS towards dealing with the general public!"
Pros: "The price only"
Cons: "The service is minimal. Everything but a seat selected by the airline is extra. I knew that in advance, but buying a cheap ticket requires you to put up with poor customer service. The Frontier cabin crew spent most of the time on both of my flights in the front and back of the cabin talking among themselves. Both flights made you feel like a sardine. Get you on and off as quickly as possible so they can get the next herd of sheep on board for the next flight. No seat adjustment button. The refreshment tray attached to the back of seat in front of me one half to one third the size of trays on any other flights I have ever taken."
Pros: "It was on time."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats. Tray tables were too small."
Pros: "The gate staff."
Cons: "First, plane maintenance. We pulled away from the gate & loud noises including grinding metal started coming from the left wing. We were towed back to the gate and deplaned, process took an hour. They determined a part was needed and solution was to have it driven by car from an airport 3+ hours away. Little info was shared from mechanical to gate agents. After several hours they gave us certificates for $10 off food and non alcoholic drinks...after we'd already eaten. Then they announced everyone would receive $100 vouchers by email for a future flight once the plane took off. 3 hours after our scheduled depart time, I see the plane crew walking away with their luggage...never a good sign. That's when we knew this was going to be a loonnnggg delay. We decided to see if we could get on same flight the next day. Gate agent was great and made it happen...but we could not get our checked luggage. Fine, we left and went home. Turned out to be a good decision, flight finally left 9 hours late! Next day we go to airport early, use our $10 certs. from previous day and fly as scheduled...until we arrive in Cleveland and there is no gate ready for us. We sat for an hour waiting for a gate. Then we get off the plane and no $100 certificates in email and are told its because we changed flights! Are they kidding? Airline travel has become like the bus lines of the air but this airline is just awful! Tray tables the size of a phone, extra charges for seats, luggage and drinks, obviously inferior maintenance, poor communication and lousy customer service. Avoid Frontier if possible."
Pros: "This was my return flight and first time on Frontier, it was an effortless flight coming and going, staff were very nice and I will definitely be a frequent flyer on Frontier Airlines."
Cons: "There was nothing I didn't like the plane was clean and the staff were courteous."
Pros: "Newer seats, so I guess that could be counted as a plus for this trip."
Cons: "Ticket counter person in PDX was very rude. Our seats were 'upgraded' for a red eye flight, behind one screaming baby for 75% of the flight, and another next to us that constantly was kicking us. The male air flight attendant enjoyed to hear himself talk so much, that between him and the amplified screaming baby, sleep was not possible. I asked for water, but since that was the only free thing, they were out of it and the male flight attendant sound get me some of their was time before we landed....that was 25 minutes into a 3 and a half hour flight. In his defense, I did get my water just before the plane started its descent. And the last point, girlfriend's brand new suitcase was covered in him when we picked it from baggage claim. Instead of just refunding us the baggage fee, no, we now have a claim open for Up to $50 to get it cleaned. Spend the extra $100 for ease of mind and fly a real airline."
Pros: "Not much. 2 hour delay."
Cons: "These new seats are disgusting!"
Pros: "The crew was wonderful and very helpful and cheerful. Flight was super fast and we arrived early."
Cons: "Seats and floor were covered in crumbs and fairly dirty. In my row it was Cheerios but in other rows there were crumbs and trash too."
Pros: "The flight was actually on time for us to board. In the past their has been delays. Boarding was smooth the plane looked like it had been updated nice seats."
Cons: "The gate had the wrong city so some people were confused on where to go. The staff at the gate need to be more professional and give more attention to customers. They were too busy talking about personal issues amongst themselves. Some people had questions about baggage and needed assistance and they would refer them to the site. They need to work on customer service."
Pros: "Cheap tickets"
Cons: "Extra charges every step of the way, seats were too cramped to sleep on the red eye flight."
Pros: "Flight attendants were nice"
Cons: "Absurd wait time to check baggage, outrageous fees for baggage, then lost baggage!! Wandered around airport looking for assistance in how to file a lost bag claim ticket for half an hour because no one could direct me as to where to meet a frontier representative. I was told my baggag would be tracked and delivered within 24 hours, of which I'm quickly approaching that mark and I have no word whatsoever on the location of my bag."
Pros: "everything was great"
Cons: "nothing"
Pros: "Can't beat the price."
Cons: "Airbus jet we flew both ways did not have reclining seats and service tray was only 4 inches wide."
Pros: "convenient flight times; on time statuses. although it may be somewhat unrelated, I loved booking my first time thru Kayak as another option/adjunct else I probably would not have flown Frontier!"
Cons: "I know it's won't be viewed seriously but I hear a lot of people gripe about it -- no free snacks and beverage."
Pros: "The fight, and it's crew were as good, and as professional as any other carrier, I've ever flown with. Even those full priced, and over priced carriers. There was no entertainment on this flight. And I did not purchase any food or drink. I would have liked the seat to recline a little more, but hey,, it's an economy carrier. You can't have everything. Besides, it was a late night flight. Only three and a half hours. By the time I got into a good snooze, we were landing in Cleveland. Look forward to doing it again."
