Crew were super amazing this flight. Smooth take off and landing.
It didn’t happen. The flight left early. We would have made our connection had they left on time. Our arriving flight had a 2.5 hour delay. We would have made it on our connection had they not left early. Now our luggage is in limbo.
Pros: "The crew was amazing"
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "We had to go back to the gate to correct an interior light problem."
Pros: "The tv is good addition Comfortable chairs"
Cons: "Menu could have been improved"
Pros: "Seat was okay, and the crew were good. Boarding was quick probably because not many passengers on flight."
Cons: "Nothing really. Flight was quick."
Pros: "Once boarding was over, flight and crew were great."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 2 1/2 hours. Better accommodations and notice would have been appreciated."
Pros: "Predictably late."
Cons: "Be on time."
Cons: "More leg room and seat width. I don’t like having other passengers pressed against me."
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Pros: "Food and drinks were great"
Cons: "Would have liked being able to select a window seat."
Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "Stuck at landing. For over 20+ minutes"
Cons: "CheezIts were too salty. We had to sit on NO tarmac for over 10 minutes because a plane was stuck at our gate...several other gates empty - what's up?"
Pros: "The crew was attentive."
Cons: "Games on the tv were okay. Tetris would be a nice addition."
Pros: "Flight was early into New Orleans"
Cons: "Flight had a lot of turbulence"
Pros: "The short duration of the flight and punctual arrival. Better seating with more leg space in Airbus than in the horrible Boeing 467- 400."
Cons: "No headsets distributed so I couldn't listen to film program. Crew rather impersonal. I'm dreaming of an airline that uses functioni g loudspeakers during boarding. Nobody understands acoustically which zone is being boarded ( not only a Delta issue)."
Cons: "At least one hour late"
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Wi-Fi not working or hard to get to work. Flight was delayed by an hour and service was very rushed."
Pros: "I liked the cookies and juice. The interactive screen to watch something. The cleanliness. The price. On time. The service. Thank you. The excitement of flying."
Pros: "The crew! You have great people working for you on these routes."
Cons: "This was an easy flight. Nothing bad."
Pros: "Being able to watch videos."
Cons: "Flew with 5 family members. None of us were seated together. And we have 3 young teen girls. Flight overbooked."
Pros: "Good service and on time."
Pros: "Nice plane. Efficient crew"
Cons: "Not their fault but they were delayed 4 hours. At least they texted updates fairly frequently but I can’t give a 5-Star review because of the huge delay"
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: "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 of the studio and musicians"
Pros: "My seat was randomly the exit row, so more leg room and pilots made great time"
Cons: "Left 20 minutes late because of travel agents"
Pros: "Everyone was very friendly and concerned about us making our connections"
Cons: "The fact that they didn’t make sure all the paperwork was correct and our delay to NO was due to that issue"
Pros: "Great staff, plenty of room, efficient snack and drink delivery, effluent boarding"
Pros: "Easy transition through customs."
Pros: "Crew was kind and helpful. Snacks were great!"
Pros: "Great flight . Even got here early"
Pros: "The outbound crew was terrific. The flight itself was fine. We even arrived early."
Cons: "Upon deplaning in Cancun, ALL passengers are put on a bus and driven far away from the terminals to an arrivals area. Those of us with connecting flights are royally f*cked at that point, especially if your connection is short, as mine was. The so-called shuttle to the departure terminals, which are entire kilometers away, was to arrive in like half an hour. HALF AN HOUR. Who has this time to spare?? The alternative to the shuttle is paying a taxi that charges a hefty fare--and God help you if you don't have cash. The departures terminal was swamped and only thru begging assistance and line cuts did I make my connection...and then only by the skin of my teeth. It was a complete nightmare."
Pros: "Really helpful staff, clean plane, attentive and easy boardiing"
Cons: "The check in was a bit confusing at the airport."
Cons: "Paid first class. Got served after people in coach."
Pros: "New aircraft A320"
Cons: "1 hour flight delay"
Cons: "Flight was delayed nearly 2 hours without any compensation to the passengers. I frequently fly jet blue and whenever they are that delayed not weather related the staff frequently gives the passengers a complimentary cocktail. Also your boarding process makes little sepnse to me why board from the front of the plane more sensible to board back to front"
Pros: "The gate person was very accommodating"
Cons: "It was over 2hrs late due to mechanical problems. Seems to be the norm."
Pros: "It wasn’t bad or good."
Cons: "Long delay due to maintenance of oxygen masks issue. Why hadn't this been taken care of with preventive maintenance?"
Pros: "The staff are fun and friendly. One of the hostesses stepped into the vacant seat where I was sitting and stepped back further when people where pushing by. We were almost cheek to cheek. The closest I've come to a cute bum in years."
Cons: "The gratis food offering isn't healthy - those bread pretzels, versus the almond & tomato juice I had on the next flight, with ...can't remember the name."
Cons: "Seating was tight"
Pros: "They ran out of food on the plane"
Pros: "Personnel and crew handled the problem in a professional manner doing everything in their power to make the best of a bad situation. Another plane was provided within a reasonable time frame."
Cons: "Four hour delay. Boarded and then being told after 40 minutes that the problem was not fixable."
Pros: "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: "When our flight was delayed by four hours they gave us snacks at the gate. No one offered to reschedule."
Cons: "The 45 minute wait in the Sky Priority lane to drop off baggage. The flight was delayed because of weather and then their scheduling system crashed. Had to wait for a pilot. When we finally boarded at 5 we got peanuts in first class. That was worth the mileage upgrade. Upon landing there was a 1/2 wait on the tarmac to get a gate. That same plane, upon taking off back to DTW blew a tire upon take-off, had to do an emergency landing and everyone had to spend the night in NOLA after being delayed all day."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The delays, we change to gate three times, Delta never told us why the changes or announce them. If it wouldn't be for Trippet Pro, where I got notices, I would not have known about gate changes."
Cons: "Late and then mechanical issues."
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Seat was uncomfortable. Flight was much too crowded"
Pros: "Flight was cancelled after multiple delays & I changed to United."
Cons: "Stop delaying & canceling flights, especially last minute"
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."
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"
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."
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: "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: "Gate crew kept the door open as we dashed to our connection and welcomed us by name as they hustled us on board. Ground crew did an amazing job of transferring our luggage in the short 10 minutes or so that we had between planes. Thank you everyone!"
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: "Flight was smooth, boarding was smooth, made good time in the air despite slight delay"
Cons: "We sat on the plane at the gate and then on the tarmac for quite awhile after some delays, but the air conditioning wasn't working. It was incredibly hot, uncomfortable, and I felt sick due to the temperature in the cabin It's just unacceptable to have to sit there in that condition!"
Pros: "My back is probably even more worst than what it is ,I had poor back support...u had to sit up the wholetime and no pillows.Wish you all had reclining seats and a Lil pillow or something.Everytime I travel I'm never comfortable sleeping,if the trip is far."
Cons: "The seats,no cushion ,no pillows."
Pros: "They were friendly. Seats are rarely comfortable..."
Cons: "I think all planes need better leg room...."
Cons: "Everything was good!"
Pros: "The flight was on time and smooth."
Cons: "Too many people with carry on luggage."
Cons: "The Boarding was not fair. The most horrible experience in my life and the Customer Service made me felt like a delinquent."
Pros: "Friendly crew, tasty meals. Comfortable seats"
Pros: "Flight attendants were absolutely amazing!!!!! They made the trip very enjoyable!"
Pros: "Crew was nice; not out of their way, though."
Cons: "Food, movies, space"
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "The entertainment system for an international flight was lacking compared to other airlines."
Pros: "Corralled group lines allowed people to get in line when I was ready versus open entrance for each group"
Cons: "Plane arrived late to gate making my flight arrive in Austin an hour later. I have an ride home, too."
Cons: "Delayed Swiss flight 8 tue 12 dec 2017 led to catastrophe"
Pros: "Comfortable Flight"
Cons: "Inflight WI-FI doesn’t work, it kept on dropping in the middle of the movie or it went back to the beginning. Couldn’t see a movie."
Pros: "Nothing! I will make sure to never use United for any flight from now on."
Cons: "Everything! The customer service was terrible and cold. Non refundable tickets should state in huge red writing that they are non refundable!!!"
Cons: "You better get rid of basic economy."
Pros: "No delay, friendly crew"
Pros: "Boarding was fine, no delays. Crew was nice, no complaints there! I had an empty seat next to me, so could stretch out. Luckily I brought a blanket with me, since I know from previous experience it's always too cold on planes."
Cons: "The entertainment didn't work on my iPad or my iPhone. I kept getting an error. Also, the WIFI is way too expensive."
Cons: "United has new seats that have absolutely no leg room and are very uncomfortable. I will make sure never to fly United again. This was 3 hours of agony."
Pros: "Associates were nice and knowledgeable. The airplanes were comfortable. Love the onetime performance of scheduling."
Cons: "Unite Airline performance wasn't the good. Also, there was nobody in Chicago to help us with the transferring process."
Pros: "I had the exit window and that made a huge difference in my trip as I am a 6ft tall woman who is all legs."
Cons: "It was slightly turbulent and TSA at O'hare airport are the rudest and laziest humans on the planet."
Pros: "Snacks and drink"
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable and cramped."
Cons: "The pilot's landing was way too fast. I was sure that the plane would come to a stop in Hwy 280 at the end of the Asheville runway. That plane probably needed a major brake job after that landing. We ended up at the absolute very end of the runway!"
Pros: "Wasn't thrown off"
Cons: "Another delayed flight with United"
Cons: "They might as well have thrown us in a car trunk the crew was very unaccommodating they didn't really care about us and the room legroom is ridiculously smal. On the connecting flight, the last flight the plane was two thirds empty and the crew made us sit in our assigned seats, crammed together telling us that if we want to sit in a seat with more legroom we have to pay $180"
Cons: "Too many seats too close together. The entire trip was too hot and stuffy. The flight attendants showed minimal care about the uncomfortable hot and stuffy environment."
Cons: "The United mobile app as well as my emails stated that the gate was B3. Upon arriving at gate B3 and attempting to board, I was alerted that I was at the incorrect gate. The gate was switched to C11. However, my app did not alert me nore did it reflect the gate change. I didn't receive a text or email update. I had to run to the different concourse nearly missing the fling."
Pros: "Crew was lovely."
Cons: "Seats BARELY reclined, and leg room was minimal. The whole flight was very uncomfortable even for someone who's only 5'3" who flys regularly. Also, no in flight entertainment for a long flight. Total fail."
Cons: "Turbulence was insane"
Pros: "We'll coordinated."
Cons: "The seats were terribly uncomfortable (including her flight to Chicago). The cushion made me slide down the seat and could not get comfortable."
Pros: "My flight in was smooth, seamless and amazing. The crew was so lovely."
Cons: "My flight out was a shot show that included a four hour delay and frantic running to gate changes. The staff was very unhelpful. The snack was awful."
Cons: "I went on this trip as an veterinary humanitarian out reach. I was also guardian to one high school student so that she might have an experience of such to guild her future. Her flight was missed booked to leave after mine, I attempted to rebook my flight with Luthansia but they would not let me me even partial rebook. I attempted a number of times to rebook the flight but their solution was extreme financial gain for them when more reasonable alternative could have been arranged. They canceled my entire return flight and left me stranded. I had to piece together a return flight on a shoe string budget. Thankfully American Airlines was understanding for it appears Luthansia and United are not."
Pros: "In flight entertainment worked. Staff was friendly."
Cons: "I had no issue with the delay, things happen. I was dealing with a knee injury and the gate plan had us all over the airport. It was quite frustrating to get to a gate in another terminal only to get told we were being moved back to the terminal we had just come from! Then that gate was changed again, involving another long walk on said bad knee!"
Pros: "The promptness on the flight -the friendly crew - arriving on time means the most, also the flight itself was smooth"
Cons: "There were no ticketing agents at the gate adding an hour to the flight."
Cons: "2.5 hour delay. No working bathrooms. Couldn't hear the tv and headphones that they gave out were useless."
Pros: "The crew was awesome and the flight wasn't bad at all"
Cons: "It was suggested that I didn't bring my carry on with me so I left it to be voluntarily checked and it came back ripped"
Cons: "flight was delayed for over 5 hours and gate was changed over 6 times"
Pros: "Over all it was a great flight aside from the rain delay but that's Mother Nature for you"
Cons: "Flight was delayed due to severl technical issues. Crew at least offer free drinks or snacks for the five hour delay."
Pros: "Nice clean planes and seat, on time performance"
Cons: "The flight attendant was hard to understand"
Cons: "I was angry that I had to fly to Houston before heading to Phoenix which made my arrival in AZ much later than I had planned. My flight had been rescheduled since I missed my flight the night before because the first flight had been delayed. So the new flight was a longer trip because of the extra layover. The overall flight was a mess."
Cons: "Multiple delays and gate changes; chaotic boarding; shabby plane condition (bathroom looked held together with duct tape)."
Pros: "That the plane actually took off and landed fine."
Cons: "Flight delayed almost 2 hours. I booked this flight on this airline as my previous flight on a different airline was delayed over 7 hours."
Pros: "Nice crew and boarding staff. The plane was repaired rather than the flight being cancelled."
Cons: "No airconditioning on the ground so the extra time on the tarmac was very uncomfortable. While taxiing, a screen went blank, so the plane returned to the terminal, deplaned, and there was a two hour delay for the repair."
Pros: "Tons of food and water. Movies good. Staff on plane were excellent. Clean bathrooms and peacful. Nice that headphones were provided."
Cons: "Seats should not be set to go back so far, if a person in front sets back all way, no space passenger behind. The seats should be calibrated to go back less of an angle."
Cons: "Some inspector idiot decided that the exterior cover stickers weren't "up to code" literally half an hour before my flight, delaying us 2 hours. I got onto a different flight at the last second, then the same thing happened to that plane. Brilliant on their parts. I almost lost a job interview thanks to your people."
Cons: "Boarding went quickly but then waited almost 35 minutes on the plane to take off. Once the plane landed there was again a wait to pull into the gate. Spent more time waiting on the plane than the flight itself."
Cons: "This flight was also delayed. It was bade enough the first flight was delayed almost an hour, but this flight also left late from the gate."
Cons: "You need bigger tray tables!"
Pros: "Arrived 30 min early"
Pros: "Was direct and easy. No issues with boarding or flight"
Cons: "The flight was super delayed because Frontier was sharing a gate with another airline..."
Pros: "Love the flight price!"
Cons: "As expected, everything else is a la carte."
Pros: "What I liked? That the flight ended and I could get off the plane."
Cons: "They charged to pick seats. They charged to carry on a bag. They charged for any drinks. The seats had NO padding. The seats didn't recline. The gate at O'Hare was dark and dirty. The travelers in my flight would have scared the residents of Mos Eisley."
Cons: "Shared my row with 500lb people and though two rows ahead of me had two empty seats I couldn't move to be comfortable. This beast of a woman couldn't put her arm rest down and therefore her body was smashing mine the whole time. It was disgusting."
Pros: "The crew had a great attitude and was able to make us laugh despite the fact that we were leaving late."
Cons: "The plane was dirty- there was balled up gum wrappers, food wrappers, and bites of food on the airplane floor. To make maters worse the carpet was already stained in multiple spots. My tray table also was dirty with sticky soda that had spilled on a prior flight. I was quite disgusted by the condition of the plane."
Pros: "Flight was 3 hours delayed. When we arrived at the airport they said it would be delayed by 2 hours. Then right before our new boarding time they delayed it another hour. I wish we would have had some advance notice so we weren't stuck waiting at the airport for 3 hours."
Cons: "Frontier seats are extremely uncomfortable (I would say the worst of any airline) and they charge for carry on luggage and drinks."
Pros: "We were ahead of schedule! Everything was on time or better."
Cons: "Got a little nervous with the sound of the plane before take off but other than that it was an amazing trip to New Orleans."
Cons: "On flight from Tampa to Chicago nobody charged me for carry on,and on a way back they charged me 60 dollars,so,this is the last time to travel with Frontier"
Pros: "The cost of the flight was very cheap, which is nice when you are flying somewhere far like Chicago to California (usually one way can be over $200). The boarding process and crew were all very nice."
Cons: "You get what you pay for. The seats aren't the most comfortable and you don't have the best legroom. Also, pack light so you can fit everything under the seat and avoid extra costs. Good for some travelers, but not for everyone."
Pros: "They only had one plane, it was weather delayed at its previous airport, then it ariver with mechanical problems. Customer service promised me the flight would be leaving that day, it ended up being cancelled. We were at the airport for 9 hours before they cancelled which meant that rebook in a flight on a different airline cost twice as much and was difficult and could only be done for the next day. Customer service was useless. The gate crews are third party contractors and can't do anything because of frontier's policies. I reported them to Dept of transportation and they keep sending the response that they have too many complaints to respond to and they wI'll get to it eventually."
Cons: "Terrible service from Denver. Missed flight due to Frontier check in desks being overwhelmed. Was there two hours early, told to go to outside curbside check in. Terrible delays when returning to Denver on the plane. Was held on the aircraft for 40 minutes before they could get us off. Bad experience. Won't be flying frontier again."
Pros: "The price of the flight"
Cons: "The fact that frontier will not transfer checked bags to a different airline. If at all possible, I will never fly this airline again"
Cons: "Not sure why there even is a flight staff. Airline doesn't even offer snacks. Airline did one round of "beverages" on a 4+ hour flight. The in cabin crew hangs out in the front just chatting with each other (because they presumably have nothing else to do). $40 to put a bag overhead. Seats don't recline at all."
Cons: "By far the worst flying experience I've ever had in my 60 years of flying constant crew understating the severity of the problems and delays. Flight was over 8 hours delayed and we reboarded at least twice."
Cons: "Worst flight of my entire life."
Cons: "The added fees are ridiculous. First we are charged for our seats upon check in. Ugh. Then, we were able to bring our small roller luggage at no extra charge from Seattle to Chicago. However, in Chicago, we were told to pay $60 (PER BAG!!!) to bring them with us, which I think is exploitation because looking back, i wonder if they could have gone underneath in storage at no charge. Also, the inconsistency of fees was VERY frustrating. Plus, $60 for a bag is absurd, what a completely ridiculous number. The seats were incredibly uncomfortable. This is the most economy airline I've ever flown, and it was horrendous. I'm surprised these even passed code, the tops felt like metal bars and barely any padding. I felt unsafe in the case there were to be an emergency. I will never fly Frontier again, and I will always warn people about flying this carrier. Nothing good to say."
Cons: "The flight had a 7 hour delay before it was officially cancelled. Throughout the entire ordeal no one from the Frontier staff could give us a straight answer on when and if we would be taking off. Most horrible service and flying experience EVER!"
Pros: "Did have good leg room in exit row."
Cons: "Thought we got such a good deal on flight, but had to pay extra for carry-on and even to choose a seat. The seats did not recline, but maybe that was because we were in exit row. Boarded an hour late to clean up from last fight because of (per their announcement) vomit."
Pros: "Nothing!!!! Never will fly with Frontier again!"
Cons: "Poor communication poor customer service extreme long what on land both deporting and landing. Wth No apologies!"
Pros: "No delays, soft landing, flight attendants were very courteous, landed early each flight. I heard all these horror stories & I actually had a good experience."
Cons: "Seats were not that comfortable."
Cons: "The online check in was a bit complicated and not really clear if we could use e boarding pass."
Pros: "Crew were courteous"
Cons: "Seattle to Chicago: Had to wait "two hours' before flight to check our baggage in. Made getting to the air port "3 hours early" as recommended by their email alert to avoid long TSA lines - which weren't - made us waiting in the airport way too long Chicago to Seattle: Same "3 hours prior" alert (the lines again were not long) made getting to and waiting in the airport way too long. Plane was delayed getting to gate and/or they brought a "new" plane in - and had to wait to get it "cleaned up" since the agent at the desk was the only one on duty, she said. Plane left late, sat on taxiway and returned with a "sensor warning" that needed looked at. Left way late in the end."
Cons: "Got a cheap flight but little did I know that that would be offset by being nickeled and dimed for seats, bags, and drinks. On top of that th plane was five hours late from its start point and the only information the gate agents would give (with an attitude) was the plane was coming. I called customer service to see if they were offering any restitution for this, and I was told that's not up to him. I will never never never fly frontier ever again."
Cons: "The seats are amazingly uncomfortable. Your ticket price is good , until you realize you pay extra for absolutely everything."
Pros: "The flight itself was decent if you don't mind non reclining seats and no beverage service."
Cons: "The 3 hour delay on top of the fuel spill outside the plane that added another hour of sitting inside the plane. Flashing lights and everything with no updates whatsoever. Horrible. Never again."
Pros: "wait times kept changing and got totally ridiculous. my uber cost me twice as much and i was delayed 4 hours. never flying with you ever again."
Cons: "Arriving at O'Hare to take this Frontier Flight.. there was a line a mile long for Frontier Airlines. They created a mess and did not try to assist those of us in line. The line was to check in bags. There were 3 different flights, and it was so unorganized. I realized after an hour that I didn't need to be in this line. I had paid for a carry on, thank goodness otherwise I would have missed this flight, like many did behind me. The flight attendants were rude! I needed to purchase a drink to take some medication, and they made me wait. It was ridiculous."
Pros: "Not much, the time it takes to get to the places is short which is nice."
Cons: "Delayed flight, only $15 dollars of food too late and not acceptable at restaurants, too long of a delayed flight."
Cons: "Website didn't work for hours when I wanted to check in. When I arrived the plane was delayed three hours before they said that the back rows 30-38 all had to rebook because they had an issue with the plane. That next flight required me two take 2 connecting flights (7 hours of flight time) and arrive 19 hours after my scheduled departure."
Pros: "Boarding was pretty easy and the crew was nice."
Cons: "The seats weren't comfortable at all and did not lean back unless you were in the first three rows. Not a lot of leg room made it hard to get some much-needed rest. Took forever to get off the plane when we landed."
Pros: "The cost was low, so it made the return part of my trip easier to pay for."
Cons: "I had not been prepared for how "no frills' your airline is, so I didn't know to expect rigid chairs with no adjustment, and that all items offered in flight were to be paid for. It wasn't a long flight, so I didn't miss not have a snack or drink, but I didn't know any of that in advance. My fault for not checking into it a little more, but it was a whirlwind trip to move my daughter and the travel was Spartan but necessary."
Pros: "Your flight's delay was unchanged; I likes its consistency."
Cons: "I did not like paying $5 more for my checked bag. Although I did log in to see if I could check in more than 24 hours before the flight nothing suggested that I should pay for my bag though I could not do seat assignment at that time. I did not like that I paid $5 for set assignments inferior to what my friends got by taking their chances. Although I understand your motives, not showing what the free alternative is seems a bit smarmy. The one hour delay on the tarmac before we could get to a departure gate was not directly your fault, but it was annoying."
Pros: "We got there safe and sound."
Cons: "The gates were changed almost at the last minute and we didn't hear any announcements. A few passengers we're almost late for boarding. I found out because some lady came by and asked if this was the flight to some where else. That's how I found out the gates were changed. I told the rep to make sure that they make the announcement so everyone knows of the changes. I could of got on the wrong plane and missed my flight."
Cons: "I did not like the carry on fee, nor did I like the fact that beverages in flight cost additional money. This seems like a really cheap flight option but all of the other fees add up."
Cons: "Flight home was 30 minutes late and not one rep apologized or updated passengers. Horrible communication."
Cons: "The website was poor it was difficult to access in order to check in the seat were fixed and uncomfortable the advertise low fares appear to be more deceptive when you start adding in additional fees for baggage and seat assignments"
Pros: "The flight departed early and arrived 30 mins earlier! Nice!"
Cons: "Flight attendant stated the water was free but then when asked for more said you needed to buy it for $1.99/bottle! Ridiculous!"
Pros: "Comfortable flight."
Cons: "Very delayed and kept us waiting longer than they promised and we're very clear as to why."
Cons: "4 HOUR delay at gate. Felt sorry for gate attendant who came out ever 15-20 mins., telling us the work was done but paperwork was the reason for the holdup. This went on for the entire 4 hours."
Pros: "The Denver people who helped"
Cons: "My brand new suitcase was broken after paying for it to be checked. My clothes and bath bag was on the pick up alone. When it was in my bag. Had to ask for tape to keep it somewhat closed to the rode and hotel. Still no email from frontier !"
Pros: "Flight crew was very pleasant both ways, but didn't make the trip worth it with all the negatives."
Cons: "Frontier's electronic tickets don't work at security. The added fees were ridiculous. Paying for a SEAT and a CARRY-ON is outlandish! They even charge for water. Seriously? The new seats are extremely uncomfortable, the armrests are cold metal, and the seats don't recline. They tray tables are about the size of a small romance novel. We felt incredibly duped. I will gladly pay more to fly an alternate airline. I hope to never fly this airline again."
Pros: "Initial cost of flight. Later disappointed that it was as expensive to check three bags."
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable, mere plastic shells compared to other airlines and seats in our area did not recline. Very little legroom as rows seemed to be compressed. Being told we had to pay for checked or carry on luggage on-line so we checked three bags since we had to check one anyway. Then noting other passengers getting on the flight with bags they were putting in upper compartment without seeing how it had been verified that they had paid to bring on luggage to put in the overhead. I feel like a schmuck for paying for bags when it did not appear anyone was checking to see who paid and who didn't. Not even soft drinks were free."
Cons: "The staff was informative and had great energy, unfortunately though, I had a very hard time getting comfortable. I'm 5'5" and I had absolutely no leg room, I felt claustrophobic and uncomfortable the entire flight."
Pros: "everything going well from start to finish."
Cons: "I was a little concerned when the person in the window seat next to me left soon after take-off. I figured he was headed to the washroom, but never came back. These days, you never know if it might have been something that should have been mentioned."
Pros: "Even though there was a ton of cancellations and delays from the day before due to Chicago weather, we had no problems with leaving on time and even arrived at our destination early. Flight crew was pleasant. Too bad TSA security took forever. They must have been short of help. Only one person checking tickets & ID's and only 1 lane for the scanners. Wtf? Good thing we got to airport early or we'd miss our flight."
Pros: "NOT MUCH!"
Cons: "This was my first time using Frontier Airlines. The price and schedule met my needs. After paying $30/each way for checking my bag plus paying for a seat (would they allow me to stand?) not sure it was so good a price. The worst was when three flights came in at the same time and ALL the luggage was sent to the same area. I WAITED AN HOUR TO GET MY SUITCASE."
Pros: "Boarding was fast"
Cons: "Very very terrible seats. Always late"
Pros: "Very friendly crew"
Cons: "Head rests"
Pros: "Boarding was quick Flight was on time"
Cons: "Drunken birthday party on board was never asked to stop whooping and hollering and was actually encouraged by the flight attendant who asked passengers to cheer and yell multiple times. Additionally, when they did not stop drinking their own alcohol after the flight attendants asked all passengers to refrain from doing so due to FAA regulations, nobody asked them specifically to stop. Gate change was not well-communicated, and no audible boarding announcements were made. The gate attendants failed to put any information about the flight or boarding on the gate screen intended for this purpose."
Cons: "The plan was dirty. They need to make sure they wipe down everything. It gross"
Pros: "No in flight issues. Seats were pretty comfortable"
Cons: "The exorbitant charge for a carry-on of practically any size. Multiple delays and poor communication. Gate changes four times then an engine issue."
Cons: "The air plane was late by three hours and nobody including the crew or the pilot seem to know why the aircraft was late."
Pros: "Boarding on time and relatively quick"
Cons: "With all the separate charges for seats, carry ons, etc. it’s really not a savings. Also, not even being offered a glass of water? That’s carrying bare bones too far."
Pros: "Attendants were pleasant."
Cons: "I had no idea the seats were going to be so small and close together... the man next to me had his arm in my lap for almost two hours"
Cons: "They charge for water. The seats don’t recline."
Pros: "Spirit website is like a child built it and maintains it. Grammar errors and hard to get a humanity can understand if you call"
Cons: "OTHER AIRLINES HAVE A 50# LIMIT. OUR BAG COST US ABOUT $30 TO BEGIN WITH. THEN THE COUNTER AGENT SAID OUR BAG WEIGHED 48#, WHICH COST US ANOTHER $38. THAT WAS AFTER I STUPIDLY SUBSCRIBED T THE $9 CLUB. KEEP THE MONEY. I WILL NEVER DARKEN YOUR GATE AGAIN."
Pros: "Change of gate wasn't fun but it was handled professional."
Cons: "VERY RUDE gate agent and flight attendant!! ( 2 separate people)"
Pros: "Was a little anxious earlier in the week after hearing about all of the flight cancellations with Spirit, but it worked out well for my husband and I."
Cons: "No complaints"
Cons: "CANCELLED. NO Assistance with rebook. Refund and you are on your own. Found out later they were have a pilot strike. They didn't disclose that and should have, in my opinion. I had the same exact thing happen on my return flight. Cancelled. No assistance with rebook. Had they been honest and straight forward I could have made proper accomdations for my return flight home. Instead a got the screw job TWICE. I understand that it is not in their control of the pilot strike. But good service would disclose that information as to not cause additional problems. Spirit sucks. Everyone knows that. But they don't have to screw people over and more then already do"
Cons: "An hour late, only food had to be purchased, uncomfortable non reclining seats."
Pros: "Took off on time, no issues. Flight was good - take offs and landings were great. There was lots of room for our carry ons and personal items because they charge for luggage!"
Cons: "I was worried about the baggage. We each took a backpack and then we checked some bags. We had no issues. I did not see anyone stopped for their "personal Item" being too large."
Pros: "No comment"
Cons: "No comment"
Cons: "Gate changed with no announcement. Also plane over 1/2 hour late with no announcement from staff."
Cons: "The airplane was dirty. And, a woman next to me asked for some water and the flight attendant says, "$3 for a bottle." This is very disrespectful and classist. Not everyone has $3, and I could tell that she didn't. Also, the plane made a terribly loud noise. I feared for my life! The flight was delayed but the crew did not give us updates.... We simply waited. And waited."
Pros: "Horrible. They charged me twice. Never again."
Pros: "The price was great-- keep these great prices at around $120 for round trip, and I will use you All THE TIME!!"
Pros: "The staff and passengers were laid back and pleasant."
Cons: "They also were a bit loud. "Guess you can't have everything. I paid baggage fee but saw passengers on the plane with "carry-ons" that were the same size as my checked bag."
Pros: "You get what you pay for. But $290 for two people round trip from New Orleans to Chicago with one checked bag is unbeatable."
Cons: "Everything. I hate spirit. Never again."
Pros: "The flight was inexpensive, on time, and pleasant."
Cons: "The baggage fees."
Cons: "spirit customer service is really poor...u guys need to improve a lot..."
Pros: "Very friendly staff, comfortable cabin, prompt service. I've always heard that Spirit flights are usually late but my flight landed 15 minutes early!"
Pros: "Everything was good"
Cons: "Everything was good"
Pros: "I liked the fact that the aircraft was new. I liked how cheap the fare was. I liked how prompt they were in boarding."
Cons: "You have to pay for EVERYTHING! !!"
Cons: "head rest added on seat very uncomfortable + seat itself is uncomfortable; other passengers allowed to sit in 1st row without paying for it."
Pros: "Staff on the plane was fine. Nice people."
Cons: "The staff responsible for getting the plane boarded were some of the rudest people I have ever encountered. Yelling at customers, threatening to delay the boarding process, and threatening to not board the plane all because the terminal is the worst built terminal I've ever been in. The customers were being patient, and the Spirit employees just kept yelling at us. One of the worst flying experiences I have ever had. Never ever will I choose Spirit in the interest of saving a couple of bucks. Not. Worth. It."
Pros: "They play good 'on hold' songs."
Cons: "Spirit cancelled my flight to New Orleans without informing me until I got to the self check in. My two options according to the baggage claim workers and customer service on the phone were to get my money back or take their Thursday flight. I was supposed to fly home from New Orleans on Wednesday. From there, they narrowed my two choices down to just one, get my money back. As a result, I had to spend an extra $300 to get to New Orleans that day through another airline. According to Spirit, there was bad weather which is why the flight must be cancelled, funny, I made it to New Orleans that day with American Airlines. They never offered to compensate me, help me find tickets through another airline, or even an apology. I will never fly Spirit again in my life."
Cons: "Flight canceled the day off for no reason had to spend 399 to catch s fought home"
Cons: "We were not assigned a seat and had to wait at the gate until everybody got in the plane and they gave us the last seats and were seated separately, although there were 2 seats available next to my friend i was traveling with, but we were told it was a full flight. The flight attendant told us we could switch after the seat belt sign came off, but after that we were told no and one of them was not very polite. Terrible. Hope not to fly with spirit airlines ever again!! I dont want to talk about the baggage also, those people only know how to be rude and don't explain anything!"
Pros: "Had issues with online check in. Had to call customer service. On hold 45 mins. Agent refused to take my info for return trip. Got to airport - no record of my paying for seat or carry-on. Agent rude. Informed me I had purchased seat/carry on for RETURN but not for first leg. Boarding nightmare. Plane smelled of old beer and vomit. Ppl in aisles with seat assignments for Row 31. Plane only had 30 rows. Return flight: got to airport - no record of my return flight. Had to be stand by for an oversold fight. There were at least 8 of us in exactly same situation. Gate crew was wonderful but frustrated - says it happens ALL the time. Will never fly Spirit again..."
Cons: "Paying for seat and carry-on. Once those fees were added to original cost of tickets, there was no savings. This, combined with above issues, clinched it for me, and I will use major carriers for all future flights."
Cons: "Too many hidden fees! I didn't know I had to pay for my carry-on. The flight was at 6:20am, so I had to pay for a Super Shuttle, since the Metro wasn't open yet. I should have just flown the slightly more expensive United flight, since they ended up costing the same in the end. Then, the flight attendants were unfriendly, like old school principals. My seat didn't recline AND was tiny. NO entertainment whatsoever - not even a magazine. And while I didn't mind (so much) the lack of in-flight beverage service, the fact that Spirit sells Oodles of Noodes - that's right, OODLES OF NOODLES - on the flight (and for $3.50!) was simply too much. I'll never fly Spirit again. Never."
Cons: "2 hrs delay and poor food selection"
Pros: "It was a smooth flight and everything was on time. My seat was not uncomfortable."
Pros: "The crew was very nice. The flight was on-time"
Cons: "Arrived at airport over 2 hours early. Did pre-check in for flight and luggage. Had to wait in line almost an hour to tag luggage. (Many people were frantic in line re: not getting to flight on time) TSA line was all the way down airport. Knew I would not make flight. NO agent to help me while I waited. Tried calling Spirit no-one could help. Got to counter with less than 15 minutes to boarding time. Supervisor was extremely rude and said there was nothing she could do re: TSA line. Said that if I didn't make flight I could get a later flight or pay extra for something different. Went to TSA line and no-one could help. Saw another Spirit rep, while in TSA line. she rudely said "no-way!" and walked away.. Finally, I "seriously" begged and cut in TSA line. Ran. Made it to gate for final boarding call!!!"
Pros: "The flight wasn't full"
Cons: "Security line at ohare was extremely long"
Pros: "Excellent flight!"
Pros: "The flight was good. I wish there had been a little more room but I will definitely fuse Spirit again if the flight is the right price"
Pros: "Friendly flight crew"
Cons: "At least water should be complimentary ."
Cons: "The service was absolutely horrible. For a cheap flight I guess u get cheap service."
Pros: "Staff were efficient and friendly"
Cons: "Not enough room and seats don't lay back at all. The cushions were so minimal that my tail end got sore sitting in the same spot for hours. Terrible. I won't fly Spirit again."
Cons: "I don't like Spirit's luggage policy. It looks like Airline pushes you to fly with empty hands"
Pros: "I liked the flight crew. Very courteous and professional."
Cons: "I disliked the VERY UNPROFESSIONAL gate crew. I've flow Spirit several times using the same luggage. This particular time, the New Orleans Gate agents were very confrontational, rude, and lacked general customer service skills."
Pros: "Flight was on time and arrived earlier than scheduled. would definitely fly Spirit again!"
Pros: "Terrible customer service and damaged my luggage there and back."
