Pros: "Fast/ efficient"
Cons: "The little plane is always brutal. I'm not a small guy and sat next to an offensive lineman. It was tight for sure!"
Cons: "Better flight scheduling."
Cons: "Flight was delayed out of the gate from ATL. No one was available for at least 15 minutes to move the jetway to let us off the plane when we arrived in RDU."
Pros: "Crew was great. Paris to RDU flight is very convenient. Fair summer pricing overall for our special itinerary. Beverages, snacks on international flight were great."
Cons: "Specialty food requested - reduced sugar because there is just too much sugar in airline food generally. Pretty awful. Some kind of (I think) pickled cabbage and carrots slaw was inedible. Plain yogurt was awful, needed something! Nuts, just a little bit of dried fruit would help."
Pros: "They didn’t want to help"
Cons: "They were delayed. They wouldn't let us keep our checked sized bags which slowed us down even more. Our next flight left without us while we were waiting for a gate to open so we could get off the plane. There were no more flights so we had to fly to an alternate city and rent a car to get home."
Cons: "Value for the price."
Cons: "The crew"
Cons: "Please reduce your delays - again we took off with more than an hour delay and by definition you are responsible of that disagreement, you are the company I am paying for the service...."
Pros: "Boarding process was smooth."
Cons: "In flight service was disappointing."
Pros: "Smooth flight."
Cons: "Tight seat. Small space."
Pros: "Good service this morning"
Cons: "All good"
Cons: "At least one hour late"
Pros: "Very good check in and customs, etc at both airports especially RDU."
Cons: "Only fair to good in flight service."
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: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Absolutely no entertainment for a flight that had way more people than my first one. Food options were horrible!"
Pros: "chwcking in was very easy."
Cons: "No in board beverages. On flight from RDU to PHL beverages were served."
Pros: "The airline staff ladies were so wonderful. They were super friendly, efficient, thorough, assited the elderly on the flight, and continuously cleaned the cabin. they helped people organize the bags in overhead ducts and always had a smile. They should be the standard for service on all flights. Excellent job."
Cons: "Food, cramped seating."
Pros: "The crew was nice and did the best they could"
Cons: "The flight was late, extremely turbulent, and was spent mostly under 10k feet, so wifi was available for only a very short time"
Pros: "Crews were great."
Cons: "Flight delays coming and going. Happens a lot with Delta."
Pros: "Getting off the flight was the best!"
Cons: "The persons who barfed and delayed take off was a not great. Cramped"
Cons: "Flight delayed by 2 hours- was just sitting in the plane for couple hours before it took away"
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: "Plane was on time."
Cons: "My seat assignment was in the last row of the plan when the plane was not full"
Cons: "The fact my flight was delayed three times...First delta said it was technical(mechanical) issues then sis it was the weather then said it was mechanical issues due to the weather. There were no compensation of the inconvenience it cause the customers."
Pros: "The woman who helped us at the desk by the gate was possibly the single most helpful, kind Delta employee I’ve ever met. She wheeled me down the jetway and upgraded our seats. I wish I knew her name. She has very curly dark blonde hair and is petite."
Pros: "Everything was delightful on Delta’s side. Very comfortable. Great service."
Cons: "Why do parents with infants choose to sit in First Class. Crying babies are not appreciated when I’ve paid a lot of money for a First Class experience. The parents in the sears behind me had a child who cried & cried. It was a real spoiler for me. I enjoyed eveeeythinf about the First Class experience except that."
Pros: "All the staff and flight crew we're really great and thoughtful. Helpful with finding overhead compartments on a full flight."
Cons: "Seats could be bigger, with more leg room. But we know that's not gonna happen."
Pros: "see aqbove"
Cons: "see above"
Pros: "On time departure and arrival"
Cons: "We landed at 2:14 p.m. but did not get our luggage until 3:38 p.m., with "priority" because we were traveling business class. Dozens of bags that were not "priority" preceded ours."
Cons: "The flight was delayed just as we were about to board at 5:30. There was a mechanical problem and we were changed to another plane and another gate, which was supposed to take off at 6:30. It was boarded and ready to go around 7:00. Then....we taxied down the runway only to stop because of a situation on THIS plane (a light that did not go off). It was fixed pretty quickly and meanwhile a rep. from Delta boarded the plane, apologizing for our inconvenience and handed out Jolly Ranchers. REALLY? After that, she and the flight attendants did give us a free drink/headset coupon. That would have been nice but it expires Dec. 2017 and the flight attendant stopped serving drinks about half way down the aisle because the flight was so short. The coupon will be of no use to me. I finally got to Raleigh about 9:30...I booked the flight so I wouldn't have to drive at night.. Sigh....Delta used to be my favorite airline."
Pros: "Got there before ETA"
Cons: "Concourse was VERY FAR away and trains were not running☹️"
Pros: "great service and a quick flight"
Pros: "Staff were great.. landed smoothly"
Pros: "Flight attendant had nice attitude."
Cons: "I asked for an aisle seat to provide relief to my right leg. I was given an aisle on my left. This was compounded by sitting next to a man so large that part of my space was taken, and this was Delta Comfort. Had I been given the requested seat, I would not have the sore neck and back I now have from leaning for 2 hours."
Pros: "Pilot almost barrel-rolled us climbing out of JFK, so if started well enough.... Ground assistance (wheel chair) left me with a badly bruised left big toe and I didn't think we'd ever get through the TSA. The pat-down I received was more like a sexual assault and I didn't even get a happy ending. We made it to RDU, so the exercise was a success, but it was a huge hassle."
Cons: "After reading the good things, you need more bad?"
Cons: "The flight crew and staff were all great!"
Pros: "Hard to like anything with this delay -- missed 3 appointments in Raleigh."
Cons: "If you have to swap out planes, do it at night, not the morning of the flight! And tell the customers in advance, so they can get some sleep instead of hurrying to the airport for an "on time" flight that couldn't be flown because of an equipment problem."
Pros: "The food has REALLY improved!! GREAT CREW!"
Pros: "Crew aware of my children's nut allergy and chose not to serve"
Cons: "Coffee horrible"
Pros: "absolutely nothing"
Cons: "no food while waiting flight cancelled and no vendors open in the airport, stood in line for 4 hours only to be told no flights available, wasn't asked if they could feed me, put me up in a hotel, absolutely no compensation for me not being able to see my son graduate in the Air Force."
Pros: "Everything was decent, good entertainment, nice crew, etc."
Cons: "Nothing was bad."
Cons: "Reservation. Checkin. Seating. Flight."
Pros: "Everything was great! It is however a mystery why the attendants find it hard to smile once in a while. They were all attentive which is more important than serving with a smile."
Cons: "Cramped, uncomfortable tin can of an airplane. Barely tolerable for even an hour’s flight."
Pros: "Fell asleep"
Pros: "Everything was how should be"
Cons: "I like how you are now."
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."
Cons: "We had a 3 hour delay because of a “minor mechanical issue” that was fixed relatively quickly but took over 2 hours to get “paperwork approved”. We were stuck on the plane the entire 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: "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: "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: "Exit Row Seating"
Cons: "Delayed Flight 1 hour and 20 minutes"
Pros: "On time departure and early arrival"
Pros: "Nice crew Spacious plane"
Pros: "Flight was delayed slightly, but pilot made up most of the time in the air. Everyone was polite and flight was totally uneventful."
Cons: "Seat headrest was weird. Made flight slightly uncomfortable."
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"
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "FLIght delayed"
Pros: "Was on time."
Cons: "Not eventful."
Pros: "Good flight. Fairly comfortable flight. Attendants Were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The movie was mediocre. Biscuit cookie was tasteless. Would prefer peanuts or pretzels."
Pros: "Landed on time. AA is mostly on or before schedule. Definitely like that part. Smooth flying as well."
Cons: "No interactions with the crew this time. Boarding is okay."
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: "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 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: "Always delayed. Always check my carry on. Which equals me being late to where I'm going."
Cons: "See above"
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: "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: "I was able to fall asleep and we didn't have to wait at the dock very long. Arrived on time and no delays."
Cons: "They flight attendant I had who took my drink order seemed distracted and basically threw my pretzels down on my tray table."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Boarding is typical disorderly. Seating us getting smaller."
Cons: "Company blamed weather for flight cancelation and did not pay hotel and meals. Onboarding crew were very rude and not helpful, Food provided in the flight is very bad."
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: "Excellent experience & return flight on airbus plane was fantastic, reduced flight time by 1 hour. Great trip, thank you United Airlines"
Cons: "All great"
Pros: "They were friendly. Seats are rarely comfortable..."
Cons: "I think all planes need better leg room...."
Cons: "Everything was good!"
Cons: "Better customer service with drinks and friendliness of crew"
Pros: "Flight attendants were absolutely amazing!!!!! They made the trip very enjoyable!"
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "Short and sweet"
Cons: "Delayed due to ice"
Pros: "Nothing at all!!! That should really tell you something!"
Cons: "The staff were rude, abrasive, ignored several passengers that were trying to get her attention before take off as 2 overhead bins were wide open and full to the brim. She of course was too busy playing on her cell phone in the back of the plane and ignored/silenced the passenger call button. They were so loud when people were sleeping, yelling ‘trash please’ every 5 minutes, we are not stupid, we can see what you are doing and if we have trash, we will give it to you - so please STOP disturbing my peace and let me bloody sleep!!!! I was never offered any food or drink during the entire flight, not even when I was awake - other airline attendants are more observant and come back and ask us when we are awake if we would like anything to eat or drink. So essentially that was 7 hours with nothing after having paid a little over $700 for what was seemingly the WORST transatlantic flight I’ve ever taken. I travel back and forth often, because I’m a dual national, but I will stick to BA or Virgin Atlantic - the planes and service are far superior to this pile of turd that goes by the name of United. There were no charging facilities (power outlet or USB port) and the TVs had such horrendous resolution that you would get a headache from having to squint at the screen."
Cons: "You better get rid of basic economy."
Pros: "No delay, friendly crew"
Pros: "Crew were friendly and attentive, service was great."
Cons: "I was seated in the last row, by lavatory door. The plane smelled bad and I could hear a distressed dog barking below. Vinyl seats left my shirt sweaty."
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: "Great captain and crew."
Cons: "I prefer the entertainment on your own device."
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."
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."
Pros: "On time, crew was friendly"
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "Originally, there was an announcement that we would be delayed by 45 minutes because of "air traffic" issues in San Francisco, where we were landing. In spite of this, the captain decided to have passengers board the plane, and try to push our way up the line, so to speak. Well, once we were on the tarmac, the flight crew were told that the plane could not take off, and that we needed to wait there for 45 minutes, without moving, in our seats, with nothing to do. Even though it would still not have been ideal to wait 45 minutes at the gate, at least we could have walked around and could have entertained ourselves."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly"
Cons: "Good options are terrible"
Cons: "Checking my bag was lousy...lax attention from limited staff and poor attitude of one ticket agent. DC airport was kind of a mess. TSA was disorganized, technology not working, calls for help from TSA officials went unanswered. It seemed strange to me that the airport of our nation's capitol would be so unprofessional. I felt like I kept encountering very unhappy and not so customer-focused staff. Flight itself was fine."
Pros: "It got me to where I was going."
Cons: "Had to pay extra for entertainment."
Pros: "Crew was attentive."
Cons: "From Gregory at the check in being rude and anything but welcoming, to seats in first class needing replaced, this was anything BUT a first class trip. This was my second time giving United a chance as I normally fly Delta. I don't think I'll make that mistake again. I understand a late night flight doesn't have a meal service, but snacks of chips and bananas is not my idea of how you should serve Firat Class passengers. I would have a hard time recommending anyone choose United as their airline. Time for an upgrade of not just the seats, but overall customer service."
Cons: "Turbulence was insane"
Pros: "We'll coordinated."
Pros: "The staff was efficient, friendly, funny and honest. Smooth landing, great service. Thank you!"
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: "The personal tv"
Cons: "Having to pay an extra fee just to watch whatever I wanted"
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."
Cons: "We were boarded on the aircraft. A 737 800 that was booked full. No ac, no pilots, and the weather was fine. It was the worst flight I've ever been on. If you don't know when the pilots are going to arrive, don't board the flight and make everyone sit in a hot plane without even updating the passengers on the eta or departure."
Pros: "boarding was efficient and fast; easy check in"
Cons: "oversold flight with 16+ standbys multiple flight delays with vague or no explanations"
Cons: "2.5 hour delay. No working bathrooms. Couldn't hear the tv and headphones that they gave out were useless."
Cons: "The layover/ delay was bad and inconvenient."
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: "Once again just like the first United flight the AC was so cold. They did not offer blankets and my son was so cold I had to unpack tshirts to wrap him. Will not fly this airline again. This has happened twice now."
Pros: "Flight itself was fine. Major delay resulted in arriving one day later than planned, additional transportation cost, unplanned, and unplanned parking fees. No travel voucher was offered and when I asked was told it was not possible to issue a travel voucher."
Pros: "Nothing. Both airlines refused to accept responsibility."
Cons: "Security was down to 4 officers after 8 pm, which is normal practice. We where in line for 2 hrs with TSA. Neither airline made any attempt to assist getting us to the gate faster to make our flight on time. We received no assistance from United or Lufthansa airlines and had to sleep in the airport overnight."
Pros: "Easy process, no issues. Pilot handled turbulence well, landed pretty smoothly. It was a good trip."
Cons: "No complaint except the trash other passengers left on the plan."
Cons: "There should be some free tv"
Pros: "Enjoyed the small size of the Raleigh airport."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "It was full"
Cons: "Our departure from O'Hare was delayed for over an hour because we were waiting on a truck to come and spray the aircraft with de-icing fluid. Ordinarily I would be understanding in this, but speaking as a military pilot, a simple walk around of the plane would have shown no ice or snow accumulation on any surfaces, and precipitation had steady stopped. It was sunny as they finally sprayed the empenage down. Compounding our frustration was a lack of communication from the flight crew. We were already boarded and delayed over 30 minutes before they announced the reason for the delay. There was no update as to our position in the queue of planes waiting for de-ice. And when the truck finally did show up, it sat next to the aircraft for close to 10 minutes before it finally began the process of de-icing our iceless aircraft. Very frustrating."
Pros: "Our stewardess' were great."
Cons: "The seats were hard, the plane was cold, & the overhead lights were so bright and never turned off."
Pros: "Aisle seat."
Cons: "They made my dad check his bag even though there was space."
Cons: "The doors did not close on time and the plane left at least 15 minutes late due to boarding delays."
Pros: "Great flight for the price"
Cons: "Nothing- there were delays but not due to the airline"
Pros: "The crew was very good, the plane was clean. The seats seemed brand new and were relatively spacious."
Cons: "I was not made aware that the regular seats do not recline as they do on all other airlines I have ever traveled on. Since I was taking a long, red eye flight it was impossible to sleep. When I asked an attendant I was told that they are 'predesigned for your comfort'..."
Cons: "I couldn’t reschedule or move my flight."
Pros: "Quick and easy check in."
Cons: "With visibly injured foot , I struggled putting luggage in overhead bin and flight attendant stood behind me calling out but offered NO assistance. The same when unloading. Customer service should not be compromised for economic fares"
Pros: "Left ahead of schedule, got to destination ahead of schedule and the pilot and his staff were true professionals that kept us informed. I flew Frontier two weeks ago, same destination and had a 30 plus minute delay, this made up. AWESOME! Thanks Frontier."
Pros: "Fast boarding, luggage arrived and undamaged"
Cons: "We were delayed almost 4 hours with no explanation"
Pros: "The boarding process was organized and the plane was clean. The service was top notch. I was a little surprised about the price to check a bag ($40 each way). I must consider that when comparing rates in the future. I will definitely fly with them again."
Pros: "Easy check in and boarding"
Cons: "My neck pillow"
Pros: "Plane was new - very impressive!"
Cons: "Plane was delayed with no explanation, No free snacks - just free water, high baggage fees"
Pros: "AFlight was fast and crew was accomdating."
Cons: "I did not like the fact that I was padded down not once but twice at the age of 69 almost 70. Really did not know I was a threat to the airlines. I'm staying with my daughter at Ft.Bragg."
Pros: "We took off 10 min early and arrived 27 min early!!! Pilot’s 2 announcements were friendly and informative"
Cons: "It was hard to understand the flight attendant’s announcements"
Pros: "frontier was the best"
Cons: "A la carte pricing! Metal chairs! Couldn't check in right away."
Pros: "The crew rushed from one other flight to ours and did a great job."
Cons: "I tried to take care of the carry on fee online, but found I had not done so at the checkin counter."
Cons: "Didn't like that I had to pay for my carry on luggage that wasn't told to me until the last minute. I feel that it should have been told to me when I booked the flight. Not happy about that at all."
Cons: "Flight delayed several hours. Seats don't recline. No food services unless you pay outrageous prices."
Pros: "Price but it would have been worth it to pay more money to fly with a different airline."
Cons: "This happened the Thursday before Memorial Day. My flight was delayed 34 min, 2 hrs, cancelled, and delayed for 7 hrs. This all happened in a 2 hr time span. The counter staff was very incompent and none of them seemed to know what was going on. They gave us a $10 lunch voucher and $15 dinner voucher which did nothing for the huge inconvenience it caused me. I had to change my rental car reservation to another company and cancel dinner reservations. I will never fly Frontier again!!!!"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "In the boarding, counter lady help me by giving priority to check in after understanding I am a bit late"
Cons: "cabin crew was awful , especially one of them really need a psicological review about how to react and handle situations."
Pros: "Actually it all went very well it was my first time with that airline"
Cons: "The only trouble I had was fine in my seat the numbers were hard to see"
Pros: "I didn't miss my connection"
Cons: "The plane was sooooo hot. I was sweating the whole time"
Pros: "The crew was nice!"
Cons: "What Frontier doesn't tell you ahead of time is you have to pay for your seat and baggage both ways!!! This cost me an extra $82!!!! The seats weren't as comfortable as on a American flight either. I'll definitely use another airline next time!"
Pros: "There was not one positive thing that I can say about my experience"
Pros: "Good rate, comfortable seating, nice crew."
Cons: "Baggage prices"
Pros: "Frontier is similar to other budget airlines like Spirit where only a personal item comes free and the seats are a little tighter than usual. I thought they had good communication around the fee for carry ons (in the boarding process, they directed people to go online and pay the fee there if they'd already to avoid a higher fee at boarding). Staff were friendly and for a short flight (<2 hours) I felt it was perfectly comfortable, and I'm very happy with my decision given that the flight was <$100 and direct."
Cons: "No free snack/drink Pay for carry on"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and professional."
Cons: "Original ticket price was cheaper than other airlines, but after the $35 overhead baggage fee, the a la carte costs for a drink and snack, and the extra $120 for business class, we paid over $200 more per person per ticket that the past 4 times we've flown on Delta. Won't fly Frontier again."
Pros: "The cost value was AMAZING. It was super cheap."
Cons: "There wasn't any entertainment, but I mean, you get what you pay for, right?"
Pros: "Very professional"
Cons: "I didn't dislike anything"
Pros: "The crew was extremely pleasant and attentive. I did not try the food; however, I didn't hear any complaints from neighbors regarding their food purchases."
Cons: "The flight was almost an hour delayed, which appears to be a reoccurring issue. The seats are extremely uncomfortable and difficult to rest in. The option to reclimb would be nice to include in all seating, rather than the first 3 rows."
Pros: "Great price and more comfortable than some of the delta flights I've been on. I've read some complaints, but my personal experience did not reflect any of those issues. I will definitely fly with them on my next trip."
Cons: "It's pay to play. I can see where some people might get all snotty about not wanting to pay for every service, but, for people like myself, it's perfect. For a round trip to Orlando for $70... I don't mind sitting next to strangers in the middle seat, I'll survive not having snack and drink service, and I can keep to myself for 2 hours."
Pros: "Was stuck after hurricane Matthew- only flight that I don't think had a delay! Friendly staff, comfortable seating, plenty of storage space. Would definitely recommend again"
Cons: "We had to wait at the gate for 30 min before take off!"
Cons: "The flight ran 4 hours late, no apologies from the staff. The staff is rude and not helpful. Took 2 hours to get the luggage, since they were running behind with all other flights. Not flying frontier again, ever."
Pros: "The price was cheap. I say cheap and not affordable because of the negative."
Cons: "The flight was an hour and a half late so I had to cancel plans because I ended up getting home too late. The seats were super uncomfortable. What entertainment and what food??"
Pros: "The staff was surprisingly welcoming for a budget airline. Everything went very smoothely and both my flights on this round trip arrived early. Well done!"
Cons: "Don't like that you have to pay for any baggage other than a personal item."
Pros: "Went well."
Cons: "Didn't offer free water."
Pros: "I loved that we left on time and boarding the plane was not a hassle and the crew was welcoming"
Pros: "not a hitch!"
Cons: "had to pay $40. to carryon suitcase"
Pros: "captain & flight crew were awesome!!!! i recommend this airline anytime. very smooth flight!"
Pros: "My seat mates left me alone"
Cons: "The faithfulness of the attendants. They were harsh."
Cons: "Frontier has so many hidden fees!"
Cons: "WHERE WAS THE CAPTAIN/PILOT. THE FLIGHT WAS DELAYED FOR 1 HOUR AND THEN AGAIN FOR 15 MORE MINUTES. IS YOUR COMPANY SO INCOMPETENT THAT IT CAN'T FIND THAT ONE CRUCIAL CREW MEMBER WHO IS NEEDED TO FLY OR DO YOU NOT HAVE ENOUGH MONEY TO PAY YOUR CREW MEMBERS A DECENT SALARY THAT THEY DON'T EVEN WANT TO COME TO WORK."
Cons: "Nothing was wronf5"
Pros: "Simple. No surprises. Low cost."
Cons: "check in took too long. Even though we pre checked the bag drop line moved slower than check in line. Not enough agents."
Pros: "The crew were friendly, considerate, and good at their jobs."
Cons: "The 'best' part: Frontier tried to charge me $104 to correct a mistake in my name during the online check-in process! I called and the customer service person agreed to make the correction without charge but also verified that the company did initially post the charge. In general, Frontier tries to charge for every conceivable aspect of a flight, including ANY seat you select (so you must decline to select any to avoid this) and the little snack bags on flights. Also, the first checked bag costs $35. Use with caution."
Pros: "Everything was on time"
Pros: "The attendants were very kind and personable. The plane was clean."
Cons: "I paid $30 extra PER SEAT to get each family member a seat that reclined for our red-eye (Denver to Raleigh). Our row had extra leg room, but no ability to recline. My husband and boys were moved to reclining seats (see below). There was NO way to sleep on the $30 extra leg room seat. Ridiculous set up. The online seating chart NEEDS to be more specific and tell customers EXACTLY what kind of extras they are paying for - NOT JUST the price. Reclining seats cost just the same as the extra legroom seats, but doesn't differentiate which are which on the chart NOT GOOD. Also, with birthdates, the online seating didn't catch that my sons were too young to sit in the exit row. REALLY??"
Pros: "Price of flight, even including a checked bag."
Cons: "Seating space and comfort."
Pros: "There was not much to like. The flight was delayed 4 hours and we were never given an explanation why."
Cons: "The flight could have been on time."
Pros: "No service issues. Our seats were arranged so the family was together for no charge. We were given a bottle of water to mix baby formula for no charge."
Cons: "Hard seats"
Pros: "the funny jokes by the flight attendant"
Cons: "there was a fee for EVERYTHING!"
Pros: "Utilization of Kiosk, check-in, boarding, crew, and pilots. The seats were clean, too. Thank you very much :) !! Flight was also on-time for departure and arrival at destination. * In the Review, put my name as Anonymous. Thank you."
Cons: "Prices for beverages, food, and/or snacks are extremely HIGH! $3 USD for a 12 oz. can of pop OR WATER (16-20 oz) ? ! ! $7 USD for a 5-6 oz bottle of wine ?! The prices are ridiculous!! You can't get water to cry with or if you were on fire. Upon viewing your menu, there is a "bundle" for three or more items. This IS NOT a bargain. You decrease the price by a dollar is nothing. It appears to be overly enrichment and a rip-off. I know that you're in business to make a profit. But dayumm!! REALLY??! You all are certainly taking advantage of your customers. There may be either a continued decrease of purchases or none at all. I noticed that there weren't many purchases in relation to the number of passengers on board at the time. BTW, the price paid for the single bottle of wine ($7 USD) is what it costs for the 4-pack, if not less. A person can purchase 750 ml or 1/5 gallon for the same amount or less (i.e., $5 USD + tax). This is wrong and obliges passenger to make a grudging purchase out of necessity. Have you ever been thirsty before? Can't have water to take medications without spending large amount of money. You can't even get tap water or courtesy cup of water / ice. What type of mess is this? $50+ bag check fee is horrendous!! Your competitors are much cheaper. Please add more cushion and room to your seats. Had this flight been more than 90 mins., I'd be making a trip to the hospital instead of home."
Pros: "Great for anyone simply looking to get from point A to point B - no fuss!"
Pros: "Left early. Comfortable seats"
Cons: "Seats too small. Didn’t recline"
Pros: "No way to contact wheelchair assistance when being dropped of to begin flight. Waited 30 minuted for a wheelchair. Had to ask Amer.Air agent for help. Other airlines are far more attentive. Seats need 2 more inches, felt squished. Very costly baggage policy, charge for carry- ons."
Cons: "Seats did not recline ( the whole plane - not just exit rows). All the extra charges for EVERYTHING were ridiculous, especially as you are not informed of any of them before booking. I'll not fly Spirit again."
Pros: "Friendly staff, fast flight, and no frills fares. They'll charge you for drinks, etc., But overall a good flight."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats, no free water."
Pros: "Glad I tried spirit! Got me in early on both legs of my flight! Also glad I got the comfy seat-SO worth the money!"
Pros: "Change of gate wasn't fun but it was handled professional."
Cons: "They didn't seat me and my husband next to each other. Take off and landing was rough. Everything cost extra. Bags snacks drinks. Only 1 bathroom. Crew was rude. Taxiing felt like whip lash."
Pros: "Of the 6 flights I took with Spirit on this trip, this was the only one where they boarded the flight in a timely and organized manner by using the zones printed on the boarding passes."
Cons: "Spirit airlines cancelled my flight the day of travel."
Pros: "Nothing. I was treated so poorly I walked away from their customer service and bought a ticket on another airline."
Cons: "I was 5 minutes late over their 45 minute required check in window. So they cancelled my ticket. For $100 they offered to reschedule me. And for another $50 they would check my bag. On a different airline I paid another $100 and got a complete round trip ticket, about 10 minutes later."
Pros: "The crew was nicer on this flight. They made more of an effort and the temp was much more comfortable."
Cons: "They don't give you water or snacks. You have to pay to pick your seat and CARRY ON your luggage. The hidden fees surpass the cheap flight"
Pros: "Nothing except the price"
Cons: "Delayed boarding"
Pros: "Low cost base ticket"
Cons: "Baggage fees added 80 to the flight cost and seat fees would have added another 40 if I paid them. If I knew that when I bought the ticket I would have gone with another airline. Oh, and no TSA pre-check option at O'hare"
Pros: "Everyone thing went smoothly and fast."
Cons: "All the added cost: seats, baggage, and snacks."
Cons: "No coomwnts on the airlines. It could br great if you provide atleast water yo the passengers"
Cons: "they were rude and uncooperative. They have no type of customer service. If you ask them a question they are short and direct. If you try to work out to find a solution...they just are plain rude and do not make an effort whatsoever to accommodate their customers. They abide by their ridiculous rules and plainly will not work with you. Besides that they started to charge for separate baggage fees. So you'll but a ticket for "cheap" but then they will charge you double for baggage both ways. My boyfriend purchased a ticket and wanted to make changes...they wanted to charge him $100 to change flight info. RIDICULOUS. He ended buying another ticket....Spirit took $200 in fees extra from us."
Pros: "Extremely friendly and funny staff. Very personable and professional."
Cons: "Small, uncomfortable seats."
Pros: "flight took off and landed on time."
Cons: "I was lucky his time and sat in the front of the plan on a better seat, but still not so comfortable. Very thin cushions. It was difficult to understand the crew n the PA system, spoke too fast and garbled. The purser was not clear."
Cons: "Delayed 2 hours because of a "late crew." Was also delayed on first flight to Chicago."
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."
Cons: "The flight was delayed with no reason given, the tray tables were too small, the seats were too narrow"
Pros: "We were off the plane and out of the door incredibly quick"
Cons: "Got bumped from flight because it was oversold. Personnel helped find flight on a different airline the next day. But that was not a direct flight and it was a major inconvenience to arrive a day later than planned."
Pros: "They try to get money in every way possible. They give you a good price on the flight ticket and then they get you on your luggage in a terrible way. 40 pounds instead of 50 like every one else. You have to pay for the carry on as well. They won't even give you water. First and last time with them. No thanks."
Cons: "I hate their crooked way to do business."
Pros: "we flew from oakland to ohare for the first time on Spirit airlines and we were very impressed. We left on time - or even a minute or two early - and landed safely. what more could we ask? The staff was friendly and the plane was clean. two thumbs up!"
Pros: "I like that there is more leg room than before"
Cons: "That i have to pay for even water. Chairs don't recline, no tv noting"
Cons: "I will never fly spirit airlines again."
Pros: "Crew and flight was very good"
Cons: "This was the second time I flew to MN with Spirit first time my return was cancelled and this time was delayed by an hours and delayed take off and delayed at Ohare"
Cons: "Flight was delayed several hours. The staff did not inform us of the several delays. Only notification that was given was a gate change. We didn't have a pilot so we sat in the plane forever. Horrible service, but u get what u pay for with with spirit. Learned my lesson and will pay little extra to not fly spirit airlines."
Pros: "The guy who made the announcements was AWESOME."
Cons: "My seat. Pricing. Being forced to live out of a back pack. Tiny seats. No water. I won't deal w spirit again"
Pros: "The crew on the plane was great. Friendly, polite quick. Too bad they were like cops dealing with people that would not turn off their phones or stay in their seats."
Cons: "The Spirit counter had 2 people working and no customers. Would not give me a seat number. Gate agent had 40 people in line and was by herself. Seems odd to hold up people boarding while I got in line to get my seat number. Also the baggage fee really does suck. $50+ for a carry on was cheapest option. Passengers caused issues the whole time. Police called and met them on exit from the plane. Frontier is the better way to go out of the two sister airlines."
Pros: "The big seat that I upgraded to for $35 one way was nice - essentially a business class seat. The crew were helpful and pleasant, and the boarding process was well-organized."
Cons: "If I had known the philosophy of this airline ("bare fare" plus pay more than average prices for all other upgrades, including water on the flight), I never would have booked with this airline. Checked luggage is more expensive with Spirit than with other airlines, and fees are almost double at the airport if you don't pay ahead of time. Carry on bags are also an extra fee; only your personal item is free. If you have orthopedic challenges and a long flight, pick a different airline - only the extra cost seats ($35 each way) recline at all. This airline was more expensive to fly than the airlines I normally fly, once I added what I consider to be basic needs. It would have been nice to have this information (especially about the seats) available when I booked on Kayak."
Cons: "Canceled flight right before boarding. People at the gate were very rude. Made everyone leave and go out past security to the front gate to even know what was going on. Many Sprit employees knew that there were no more flights but wouldn't tell us. Made us all wait in line. They refused to help us find another flight. I will never again fly this airline."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Not the best experience. Your airline is awful!"
Cons: "The price goes up so quickly. Also the website was down and when they were going to help me via the phone, they said I would be charged $100 as opposed to $35. It was awful."
Pros: "Other than the billing everything went very smooth"
Cons: "I was double charged for my bag leaving from Chicago. I disputed the charge on my credit card."
Cons: "Is always a surprise with extra charge on luggage, is never clear how is will be the size the shape the color etc etc!!!!"
Pros: "Flight was on time, boarded on time, and arrived at destination 20 minutes early"
Pros: "Only good thing was the staff aboard the plane."
Cons: "Delay, after delay, after delay. Got to ohare early, as you should. The second I arrived I got an email saying my flight may have been cancelled. Checked my bag anyway and found out it was only delayed. Aggravating but whatever. Got lunch, had a few drinks. Delayed even further. Approaching the time to board again...delayed another hour. Sat in three different terminals for 5 hours. Only to finally board and get delayed again. Flight was overbooked, people taking seats that weren't theirs. Absolute chaos. I get that it's cheap, but, it's at the cost of comfort and sanity. I'd consider a ricksha before I considered spirit airlines again."
Pros: "Never flying spirit again."
Pros: "Missed my flight due to your computer system failure at booking!!!!! No announcement made for the immediate flight while standing in security lines!!!!! Arrived at the gate at 11:12 and the plane door was already closed though the flight wouldn't departuntil 11:20!!! Ridiculous experience!"
Pros: "Everything was clean, staff was polite, boarding was fast."
Cons: "I paid the same amount for a one way Southwest flight as I did for a Spirit flight going the opposite direction - however, when you add all the extra costs Spirit piles on, it's stupid. They even charged for WATER. We only were able to get a free glass of ICE. Don't use "Only pay for what you use" as a positive advertisement. That's cheap & petty, and I'm never flying with Spirit again. Southwest all the way! The website was really hard to navigate, and when I tried to process a payment to have my bag paid for early, it didn't go through. They want you to pay the higher price at the airport."
