Pros: "The crew was good."
Cons: "NA"
Pros: "We were on a flight from HOU to PHX and we on the runway, when due to severe weather, the airport closed. We were there for a long time and the crew kept us updated, hydrated and told jokes to break the tension of an extremely bad situation that was out of our control."
Cons: "Nothing! They even sent us LUV vouchers the next morning (that more than reimbursed this single mom - me, for all the funds spent for the trip), to compensate for the bad experience that was COMPLETELY OUT OF THEIR CONTROL. Kudos, Southwest for going above and beyond the call of duty to win me over!"

Cons: "On time"
Pros: "The crew was attentive."
Cons: "No phone chargers on the plane. WiFi was not available for that particular flight. We sat on the plane at the gate for almost an hour before the plane started moving and the crew said the delays were due to “paperwork”"
Pros: "Flight on time, drinks & snacks; arrival on time"
Cons: "More options on snacks"
Cons: "Had a 1.5 hour delay due to a mechanical issue."
Cons: "After spending $80 to upgrade our position in the boarding process, we were dismayed to learn that there were more than 20 so-called pre-boards, some of which had come from an earlier flight. I have complained to Southwest and will demand a refund, and I have also contacted the credit card company"
Cons: "Even with the air vent open, it was a bit warm. Traveling with my dog, had to pick the case up so she could get some fresh air."

Cons: "Cup of hot tea was very small."
Pros: "Flight was amazing!"
Pros: "The ability to sit next to my person."

Cons: "No announcements were made after SW028 landed to inform passengers regarding the long wait on the tarmac."
Pros: "Once again, a Southwest flight crew made the discomfort of flying a little less onerous by being friendly and funny. People were actually laughing out loud. The seats are so small you’re packed in like sardines, the food offering is a lousy bag of pretzels. But the flight crew? They were truly pros."
Cons: "See above — it’s just misery to fly in tiny seats."
Cons: "Very cold!"
Pros: "Didn't crash."
Cons: "In wheelchair and needed assistance boarding. In fact there were 3 of us and no assistance. They started boarding others and then that made it difficult to board. I felt neglected and in everyone's way. No food available on flight to purchase. Because of time difference, after landing and customs check, I was hungry but didn't think I had enough time to get anything. If I had known the plane was delayed, I would have gotten something to take on board. I arrived at Ontario Airport at 10 45pm which was 12:45pm by my stomachs time and I hadn't eaten anything since lunch."
Pros: "I like the boarding method a lot, everyone should do it that way. The staff is kind and polite overall. Their baggage policy is what brings me back every time."
Cons: "I wish they weren't so stingy with the soda drinks. I was feeling very thirsty and they give you a tiny cup. I tried to get up to get another drink only to get chastised back into my seat to anxiously wait for them to come around again."
Cons: "Almost never used to have a delayed SWA flight. Now it is commonplace. Gate attendants rarely say anything of explanation or apology, as if you will always just be there. Not necessarily so."
Pros: "The ice water."
Cons: "Babies crying, about five kids at the same time. Only a tiny bag of peanuts as snacks. Seats where totally uncomfortable, everyone that passed was hitting my arm. And a big guy on the other side, I felt like a ham in a sandwich."

Pros: "Great staff, good price, good airline."
Cons: "Nothing at this time"
Cons: "None"
Pros: "Lots of empty seats on the flight so more comfortable than most. Friendly communicative crew."
Cons: "Everybody hates peanuts. Please consider providing outlets at the seats so we can charge our devices, and little tvs on the backs of the seats. As-is, $8 for internet on a short flight is dumb and my phone can't last very long playing media anyways."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Good crew"
Pros: "I got home"
Cons: "Zero entertainment; zero meals (snacks only); cup of soda; couldn't sit with family because boarding pass was at the end of the "Bs." Very uncomfortable."
Pros: "My wife left a small carry-on in the overhead. We called and filed online but weren't sure it would turn up. SW called today and is sending it to us. Great relief to my wife."
Pros: "Kosher snacks! Thank you. Screens and outlets at every seat. Safe, controlled Covid protocols including de-boarding. Excellent!"
Pros: "Delta flight took extra precaution to keep all passengers safe before during and after the flight. They communicate effectively during the flight. I will be flying Delta again and again."

Cons: "We arrived around 39 minutes early and the whole process was very smooth"
Pros: "Super friendly and helpful with connections."
Cons: "The music on the plane was a bit much. Lol"

Cons: "Passengers who pay retail for first class on domestic flights should get access to the Delta lounges even without the AE card. Other airlines do this, and we have come to expect it."
Pros: "The boarding was fast and very well handled."
Cons: "My flight from Chicago was two hours late and that's why I missed the flight from Atlanta to Buenos Aires. No one helped and did not know that the flight was delayed and I had to find a place to sleep. I'm not satisfied with the experience and I have not yet arrived in Argentina because of the whole"
Cons: "It was delayed"
Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "Chinese Eastern did not try to help and solve my problem."
Pros: "It was a smooth boarding, flight and exit out of the plane."

Cons: "Layover"
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Too cold Not friendly boarding agent"
Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "2.5 hour delay for no apparent reason at first (supposed mechanical issues with plane) and then waited on plane at gate for a missing pilot who never got picked up from his airport and got stuck in Chicago traffic trying to get to O'Hare. Eventually had to take pilot from another flight before leaving at 8:45 when flight was scheduled for 6:00am."
Cons: "Had a death in the family and no one would help me get back home"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable. Snacks!!! Nice flight crew."
Cons: "I liked everything."
Pros: "The Gogo Inflight wifi and entertainment did not work for even a minute. I choose flights based on their amenities and this one had offered full WIFI service which swayed me to choose to fly with Delta. I'm not sure who is to blame about this issue but I'm pretty frustrated that it was completely dysfunctional."
Pros: "The movie I watched was pleasant, although I had trouble hearing it because of the situation described below."
Cons: "There was a family seated behind us with several crying, loud children. We were miserable. Even my headphones with a Mozart sonata cranked up to loud did little to mask the noise. Probably not Dela'a fault, but the crew did nothing to mitigate the problem."
Cons: "Plane was sat broken at gate and needed part to be flown in. 150 minutes delayed. Not acceptable."
Pros: "No fee to get on an earlier flught"
Cons: "When I tried to rebook online this flight was not an option"

Pros: "Really easy boarding and flight. Great in flight entertainment options."
Pros: "All was good"
Cons: "Nothing to complain about."
Pros: "Seat assignment process was great and considerate of my preferences."
Cons: "If AA could fix its luggage handling process that would be great. BOTH (!) of my bags have been lost on this flight. Both have been eventually located, recovered and delivered to me, but experience was not pleasant this time."
Pros: "Flight attendants were friendly and thoughtful."
Cons: "Seating is too tight. Hard to believe that in 2019, major airlines still have seats without any electrical or UBS outlets for charging devices."
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "Plane was about 1000 years old and I don’t think I’ve sat in a more uncomfortable seat."
Cons: "Unable to connect to the new AA so-fi"
Pros: "Comfortable seats and snack / drinks service"
Cons: "Delayed flight departure and bumpy landing"
Cons: "I was apparently "flagged" by British Airways for extra security checks. As I understood it in London, I was randomly selected for this security check. This then apparently meant that I was to be flagged for all subsequent flights. This meant that in Chicago, after going through two other security checks that day (Zurich and London) and completing customs, I had to engage in a full Homeland security check. This involved removing protective covers from my laptop and phone that were hard to get off (not meant to be taken off regularly) and a full body search that I did not have to do in London. After many hours of traveling, this was very a frustrating experience."
Cons: "I will never, ever book with Kayak again"
Pros: "Flight crew was great. The plane was half full, so the attendants allowed us to move."
Cons: "Terrible landing in Charlotte. The plane was rattling and had an annoying whistle."
Cons: "British Airways/American Airlines lost/delayed luggage again! Then send an email in the middle of night with a link to schedule home delivery of the luggage that was valid for 4 hours only. It is clearly an attempt to cheat out of their responsibility of home delivery of the luggage that was delayed the second time. Poor, poor service by American Airlines."
Cons: "It was not clear that I needed a different 6 letter code to checkin using the AA website. I finally got frustrated and called AA only to find out the code was different. The codes should have been the same or you should have referenced it on the website when I tried to check in"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for more than 4 hours with little communication from staff as to why, gate was changed to a gate across the airport."
Pros: "The boarding was quick and easy as well as the crew was friendly and accommodating. Great end to a fun weekend away."
Pros: "Our plane was late getting to the gate. They kept us informed and turned it around pretty quickly. There were storms between Chicago and Rochester so we were rerouted. As a result the hour flight was an hour and a half. The pilot kept us informed and it was a very smooth flight. So even though I was over an hour late arriving I so appreciated the communications and the safer route. AA seems to be communicating more than other airlines and I appreciate that. Flying is absolutely no fun anymore so you take what you can get for the positives."
Cons: "WiFi wasn’t working so I couldn’t communicate my late arrival to family picking me up."
Cons: "On my first flight from SLC to ORD I asked 3 different American Airlines employees if I needed to pay for my carryon before I got on the plane. They all said no. I got on the plane, put my carryon under the seat in front of me and everything was great. I landed in Chicago, got to my gate, went to board and this very rude employee stopped me after I scanned my ticket and told me I couldn’t board with my bag. The EXACT bag I had boarded with in SLC. After harshly grabbing my bag and putting it in the carryon basket to check for size, she wouldn’t let me pass by her into the boarding bridge and told me I was going to have to pay. I tried explaining that I had asked I’m SLC if I needed to check it and they had all said no and that it fit under my seat. She said, “I don’t care what they said in SL, this is what I’m saying here.” And directed me to the front desk where I had to pay $50!! $50 for a carryon backpack that fit under my seat comfortably 20 minutes before!! Without saying a word (cause I didn’t want to yell at the poor girl behind the desk) I paid the $50 and proceeded to enter the bridge but before I passed through, the rude woman said, “have a nice flight ma’am” and scoffed!! An audible scoff. So I’m short, I hate American Airlines and I will do my BEST to not have to fly with them in the future."
Pros: "The fact that they re-booked without me having to contact customer service."
Cons: "The connecting flight was cancelled while boarding was in progress at the start of the journey."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by untold circumstances causing us to miss our connecting flight to Venice."
Pros: "On time departure and early arrival"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Nice crew Spacious plane"
Pros: "The crew was amazing, flight was very smooth, arrived early, plane clean, service was great."
Cons: "For being in first class, my seat did not recline so I couldn't sleep and audio for my entertainment center was not working"
Pros: "Good time for flight"
Cons: "Tight, hot inside plane, no refreshments"
Cons: "They left the lights on the whole flight"
Pros: "They alerted me to problems with our flight and we switched to an earlier flight. No problems with new flight. Good service."
Cons: "Great trip"
Pros: "Not turbulence"
Pros: "Was on time."
Cons: "Not eventful."
Pros: "crew was great, plane seemed newer and clean. individual screens worked better than others I've used in flights."
Cons: "newer touch screens were great except viewing angle couldn't be adjusted. standard food was horrible, esp for an international flight; not sure if specialty diets have better meals. kid movies were dubbed into many language options but Chinese was not one for ANY kid films. bathrooms with the same crappy mini sinks that you can't really wash your hands in, esp if someone pukes in it. they should all learn from Japan's ANA airliners with the motion sensor sinks with faucets raised up high enough for you to wash your hands without touching the gross basin."
Pros: "On time, good service."
Cons: "Luggage did not make the transfer on time (Chicago-Charlotte after Tokyo), although they had about 45 minutes to load it. Do not buy an international ticket with less than 1.5 hours transfer time. (It took 45 minutes to get through customs/immigration and retrieve luggage for transfer."
Cons: "Missed it."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "An S80? Really? This plane was older than me! Horrible plane! The crew looked like they had been up since 4 am. Looked exhausted and unfriendly. I do want to clarify that this was an American Airlines operated plane, not etihad."
Cons: "The cramped space"
Cons: "All was excellent! Only the internet was not working good , payed for all flight access but most of the time the internet was not working. Anyway I contacted support team and they refunded me"
Cons: "The flight was delayed more times than I can count, we got a different reason each time. Weather I can understand, but telling us we are waiting on a specific crew to arrive and then announcing that crew is not for our flight was just terrible communication. No one seemed apologetic. The only thing they did was bring a snack cart over for us, and that got raided by children so many people didn't get anything. We had arranged transport from Orlando to Tampa for that evening, and our rides had to cancel because instead of 7pm we were now arriving at 130am. Your airline's mistakes put everyone at an inconvenience and we weren't offered assistance to fix it. My husband went to ask for help in arranging new transport home, but he couldn't even get to the front of the line. The customer service was terrible. We really enjoyed our first leg of the flight home with American Airlines, but after the second leg and all of the problems we had... we will not fly with American Airlines in the future."
Pros: "on time"
Cons: "very cold"
Cons: "This made the check in process extremely frustrating and confusing. Traveling with my elderly dad who had to squeeze between two large men for 7 hours because people who actually booked the airline got priority seating. We had to pay an extra $500 to upgrade to comfortable seats. Not pleased w Kayak."
Pros: "The crew was great and getting 2 meals was very nice."
Cons: "My headphone jack kept malfunctioning (loud popping noises in my earbuds) while watching the movie and all the reading lights came on and stayed on the majority of the flight so sleeping was difficult."
Pros: "An agent found me a window seat for the Chicago-Barcelona leg of the trip with extra leg room. That was amazing. Also, the lost luggage assistant for American Airlines was super helpful and nice. Also, the 787 (I think that was the Chicago-Barcelona craft) was a very enjoyable airplane. It was super smooth. It had high tech windows that adjusted the amount or type of light that could filter through the windows depending on the settings."
Cons: "When I arrived in Barcelona my Bag went missing. It showed up an two hours after my flight landed."
Pros: "I enjoyed the entertainment because I don't watch movies in the theater often. The movies I saw in-flight were recent films I've been wanting to see and made time pass fairly quickly."
Cons: "I'm not a giant, but there definitely was not enough leg room in the main cabin. I could not sit comfortably, especially in the middle seat."
Pros: "Good flight. Arrived on time"
Cons: "Jet bridge was broken and needed repair. Delayed departure."
Pros: "The crew were exceptionally friendly and helpful. They made the negatives about the flight much more bearably be their excellence service whether during boarding, in flight, or after landing."
Cons: "I booked the flight originally through british airways and expected your standard, modern plane for cross atlantic travel. Boarding to find myself on a 767 designed (and likely built) in the 80s was rather disappointing."
Pros: "Seats were really neither notably comfortable nor notably uncomfortable. I think they were slightly on the comfortable side."
Cons: "Would be nice to have more modern aircraft amenities, like power outlets for device charging, and display screens with at least some complimentary entertainment, or at least flight path tracking. Boarding counter lady was obnoxiously strict about not letting our carry-on bags to be carry-on. She made us test them in the size device and said they were too big, even though they could easy be pushed into the space, and regardless of the fact that we just flew on an American Airlines flight with them as carry-on and were only on a layover with them! Regarding the previous AA agent who let them be carry-on, she said "shame on them." Complete opposite of the positive experience we had with her counterpart in Phoenix. ಠ_ಠ"
Cons: "They cancelled the flight and put me to fly the next day"
Pros: "Everybody was nice my ride was comfortable and they treat me with respect"
Cons: "I like everything"
Pros: "They sucked. As did the company as a whole."
Cons: "Everything!"
Pros: "Crew was great. Fast flight. Lots of information from the pilot"
Pros: "The crew was nice and did the best they could."
Cons: "The plane was newer and the seats were leather, so it looked clean and nice. But the seats are really close together in every side, it is tight sitting. The terminals are bare bones, had to walk out in the rain and hail to get inside, and the luggage took forever. The pricing policies are insane, charges for luggage, drinks, all very unclear. First time using Frontier and it seems like a great deal at first but adding up all the extra fees I am never using them again, the price ends up being like a regular carrier. Not worth it."
Cons: "One hour delay due to broken armrest. Seats were uncomfortable. Last week we had a 4 hour delay and had to stay in an airport hotel as the car rental was closed when we landed at 2 am. There were no updates from the airline."
Pros: "Clean smooth flight and nice crew"
Cons: "Rude woman at check in counter"
Cons: "I did not like it took an ENTIRE hour for the passengers and MYSELF to get our bags off of baggage claim. Our flight landed @ 11:38 pm we did NOT get till an hour later! I will be contacting corporate!"
Cons: "Everything, it was late not organized crew was not the nicest. Never again. The delay was only 5 h"
Cons: "The whole experience was pathetic!"
Pros: "Crew was very accommodating and courteous"
Cons: "Flight was severely delayed and instead of keeping it for next day it left sAme night at middle of the night. With kids this is the worst timing this airline has as they had better times from ttn to dtw in 2016 and 2017. I will have to rethink in future if I will take this or use another major carrier."
Pros: "Flight was suppose to leave at 9:25 am. It was delayed then we were boarded then unboarded because plane problem was not fixed. Given $10 food voucher that doesn’t cover a airport meal. Then finally at 4:45 we boarded again. Finally made it back to Bismarck @ 6:45 CT. Til I picked up my kids and got home (hr drive) it was 9:30 pm. Not impressed. Have been hearing that frontier has a lot of plane issues!"
Pros: "Nothing. Every single person I spoke with was insulting to me, repeated information they already gave me and showed no sympathy whatsoever. They cost me money, they cost me a day of work and no one even seemed to care but every single agent did find something different about me to blame. What an embarrassment."
Cons: "I couldn't check in online because of a website error. I couldn’t get ahold of anyone on the phone to check in. When I did they said I had to use the website. I arrived in plenty of time to board (there was a 4 minute security line) but they would not check me in and told me to call a number and they made no offer to help me and told me I should have chexked in online. I called the number and they gave me. I was on hold till I missed the flight. The agent told me the people at the counter could help me. I aksed for a supervisor. He offered to reschedule me for Sunday, (today is Thursday) for a $99 fee (the ticket was $63). After arguing for an hour i finally got the supervisor to refund my money but I still had to buy another ticket on another airline to get there. I will never fly frontier again ever."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed almost 2 hours. Crew was pleasant, but the seats were so uncomfortable for a 3 hour flight. Would rather spend the extra money for a ticket on a nicer airline. They just keep getting worse!"
Pros: "Nada"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "The pilots flew the plane well and the crew gave a good preflight tutorial."
Cons: "Delayed bording time by over 1/2 hour, 4 crying babies, snippy/jerky flight crew and check in personel also charged me $75 on top of the $45 bag charge on my originating flight because my bag was 8 lbs too heavy, yes a whopping 58 whole lbs."
Pros: "Got me to my destination. Made my connection. What was the entertainment?"
Cons: "Lack of complimentary beverages. High charge for checked luggage & carry on luggage. Too many additional charges. Enjoyed flying with other carriers better with amenities with cost equal to or less than cost to fly Frontier. Late departure."
Cons: "Flight was delayed almost 2 hours and subsequently missed my connecting flight. When waiting, the staff did not have any info on when the plane would come in or any info about connecting flights which would be missed until 10 minutes before boarding. They had over 2 hours to figure this information out. Very disappointed in this airline and will not be using it again."
Cons: "Disappointed that the water was $4.00 and the fact I could not purchase water before boarding flight. Disappointed that luggage cost extra. When I add all Frontiers extra charges Frontier was comparable with Southwest. Next time its Southwest as usual."
Cons: "Unexpected 45$ per carry on. Horseshit"
Pros: "Again, flight was good."
Cons: "At Denver, almost missed my flight since the gate I was supposed to board changed. And one more thing, it has been 10 years since my last flight and the hard plastic seats are something else. Since I paid for the seat, i might as well sat on the wing, would have been just as comfortable."
Pros: "The cost of flight, pilot was very smooth."
Cons: "The people around me. But that isn't within your control .wasnt aware of extra cost to carry on . Because who doesn't fly with some kind of item."
Pros: "Arrived fine."
Cons: "Long overnight lay over in DEN was poor. I knew about it, but Frontier might have some place to crash besides the floor."
Pros: "I was seated well on both flights. Window then the isle. For a big man those are great seats"
Cons: "The cost of the food"
Pros: "Boarding the plane from the ground using both the front and rear doors of the plane made loading carryon luggage much better than airports that use an enclosed extended arm for only the front door. The extra leg room for sitting in an exit row with reclining capability is huge! I would be willing to pay to get an exit row all the time since the first flight was spent in a "normal" seat and the leg room is pretty bad with how many rows of non-reclining seats have been crammed into their planes."
Cons: "The open access to the planes required extra security personal constantly checking passports and boarding passes because there's the possibility of wandering over and boarding an incorrect plane."
Cons: "I booked this as a direct flight and then a layover was added in Cincinnati....bullshit."
Pros: "I like the price! The crew was great. I paid $16 for my choice of seat."
Cons: "I don't necessarily like The tight seating and lack of perks but hey it was cheap."
Pros: "I arrived at my destination."
Cons: "Everything. Flight kept getting delayed with no explanation of why. Took an hour on hold to get an agent on the phone. The worst customer service. The flight was expensive and everything is extra.. you pay for your luggage and a seat on top of the airfare."
Cons: "The extra charge for a seat is absolutely terrible, or risk not sitting with your travel companion! Also while the airline "alerts" you about the charge a for carry-on bag, I saw no enforcement of that rule and many passengers I spoke with stated they did not pay the extra carry-on baggage fee. The seats were terrible and the tray table was a joke. No complimentary beverages. Awful experience!!!!"
Pros: "I liked the price and it was on time. The staff was nice."
Pros: "That we landed."
Cons: "Frontier has made flying a really horrible experience. I used to love them. No more!"
Pros: "Visiting with them"
Cons: "Waiting 3 hours"
Pros: "I never write reviews, but I have to say something about this wonderful flight crew. I have a serious fear of flying and their great attitude and funny personalities made my experience 100x better than usual. Please send them my thanks!"
Cons: "took 5 flights on a XC trip in two weeks. 4 of the 5 flights were late/delayed."
Pros: "The flight was cheap and was one way."
Cons: "3hr + delay, no device charging, seats are uncomfortable."
Pros: "Stewardess was funny."
Cons: "Everything else."
Pros: "none"
Pros: "The seat were very comfortable."
Cons: "The baggage fee is excessive. $45 for a carry on is unacceptable. I felt like someone had robbed me at gun point when I got to the counter and was told the baggage fee."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and nice"
Cons: "No entertainment and need better bag policies with prices"
Pros: "I had to pay more money to get home. Frontiers customer service was awful..can hardly understand agents.they need Americans to answer their phones so you can understand and not keep having to ssy..im sorry I can't understand what you are trying to ssy. I am fighting to get my portion of ticket from ATL BACK to SLC..and have been unsuccessful so far. Since I bought from Kayak can you help me accomplish this please?"
Cons: "Non Americans answering phones, hard to understand..and I shou k d get a refund and am having a hard time getting one. Please help. You can call me at 8014990541."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Deceptive pricing practices. Hidden charges. The advertised price looks low but then they charge for carry on bags, seat selection, etc. I was surprised they didn't charge me for the glass of water. Of course you don't find out all this until it's time to check in. Also the seats were like metal folding chairs that you couldn't even recline at all."
Cons: "Delayed 6 hours. Flight attendants not prepared for new plane."
Cons: "bare bones comfort and hospitality"
Pros: "Pilot was great very smooth take off and landing"
Cons: "4+ hour delay. 2 flights scheduled out of CInci To Denver. We were on the early flight and ended up leavin 30 minutes later than the late flight. Baggage claim was a joke. Took 90 minutes as they had our luggage on the 2 different planes. No one knew where our stuff was it which carousel it would be on. Missed our dinner meeting and ride from the airport. Luckily we weren't trying to make a connection like many people were"
Pros: "non-stop flight"
Cons: "1 hour late arrival uncomfortable seating pay for everything extra"
Cons: "Late boarding, flight was very bumpy/unsteady, had to wait upon arrival before unloading for about 40 minutes"
Cons: "Seats uncomfortable."
Cons: "Hidden costs on everything"
Cons: "Echoing every other review. Completely misleading to charge someone on the spot for a carry on, when there was no indication that would happen when I booked my flight. I would have never gone through Frontier if I knew about all the hidden fees. Extremely disappointed. Also, $60 to have a backback that fits under the seat? Really? Also, you have to pay for a tiny cup of water on the flight. Everything costs money with Frontier, and it's a joke,."
Pros: "Very efficient boarding process Comfortable seast. crew was friendly. Unfortunately, we had to sit in the plane for an hour waiting for it to be de-iced. I don't know whether front tier could have done anything to avoid that, but they did make up almost all the time and we landed hardly late."
Cons: "More announcements as to why we were so delayed we are sitting on the plane"
Pros: "the crew was nice and the flight was on time"
Cons: "seats uncomfortable charged extra for a carryon bag charged extra to put carryon bag in overhead compartment charged for a drink no free peanuts/ cookie you get on other airlines. Only had food that was for sale"
