On time.. crew very attentive. Flight was on time

On time.. crew very attentive. Flight was on time

Boarding was on time (if not a little early). The flight was unfortunately not properly catered for snack boxes in main cabin. This is likely a one off instance, but it’s a long flight for no food options other than pretzels and Biscoffs. Service was attentive and friendly. This particular flight offered Delta’s DeltaOne lay flat first class seats. Would highly recommend. Flight left on time and arrived early!

Pros: "Very attentive and engaging crew."
Cons: "really nothing!"
Cons: "Flight was late for one hour"
Pros: "Despite boarding late, and sitting on the tarmac for half an hour since we missed our take off time, and having to move passengers around to balance the weight on the plane, we made it home alive."
Cons: "We landed over half an hour late. Flight attendants needed to move passengers to balance the weight on the small plane, and asked for "volunteers." When there were none, the FA stood in the aisle and said we just weren't going to take off if nobody volunteered. They should have just MOVED people."
Cons: "There was a lot of turbulence and people screaming in fear, it always makes me feel better when the crew says something reassuring to make people less anxious."
Pros: "Charging at every seat is great."
Cons: "All of the plane extras (e.g. WiFi, food service, etc.) were out of commission for some reason. Without WiFi, I couldn’t watch anything on my own device, and I would’ve had to pay for a headset that is compatible with your screens."
Pros: "The crew was amazing."
Cons: "Cleanliness"
Cons: "The only problem with the food was it was all canceled because of rough weather."
Cons: "I’m would be much better if I can sit by my husband."
Pros: "I was upgraded to Comfort+ and the seat next to me was left vacant. That was a great flight!"
Pros: "Crew was nice, despite multiple hoardings and time delays."
Cons: "Plane was originally set to leave at 11:30 am, but was delayed until 3:00 pm for equipment. We boarded the plane at 3:00, the door was closed, and 30 minutes of waiting at the gate, where told to deplane, and the flight would leave at 5:06. There was another flight to San Diego, also delayed for hou"
Pros: "It was a nice flight. No troubles"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Crew provided first class service and were in good spirits for a very full flight. Full first class beverage service"

Cons: "Like above"
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)."
Cons: "It was very hot in the cabin during the flight. Several passengers noticed."
Pros: "Smooth flight on new B757 with good entertainment system and Comfort+ seating legroom worth the extra cost but I was disappointed that the overhead storage bins above our seats were filled by pax from other seats before we arrived even though we were given priority boarding and the toilets were filthy."
Cons: "Boarding passengers should be more carefully controlled with amount and size of cabin luggage and where they place them. Toilets should be more frequently cleaned in flight."
Pros: "On time, comfortable, great flight attendants."
Pros: "Had to cross terminals and the pathway was closed due to an international flight landing (poor planning on LAX part) so had to exit and reenter terminal through TSA. Flight delayed an hour then cancelled due to control panel failure. 10pm flight became 12am bus (and originally told it was 11.15pm bus which was "stuck in traffic" when google map traffic was all green). Got back to SD 4 hours after scheduled time."
Pros: "The movies were spectacular"
Cons: "Food was a bit plain"

Pros: "Quick and on time. Comfortable seats."
Cons: "Not many movie options."
Cons: "It was so late I missed my connection to sun valley flight. There was not another flight for 8 hrs!!! I think the sun valley flight should have waited for us. It was a matter of 10-15 min. Crew did not try to board people quickly to get us out of San Diego. 5 more minutes might have made a difference."
Pros: "It was on time. Flight crew was courteous. Plenty of room and comfy seats. Good entrainment media"
Cons: "Wish it would've had more movie options"
Pros: "Stewardess named "Mel.""
Cons: "Paid for upgraded seat to "Comfort" for both of us. Bank account was charged for both. Got to gate and only one of us was upgraded. Gate agents said there was nothing hey could do, and that I had to call customer service. Nothing, in person. Terrible"
Pros: "Friendly crews."
Cons: "Crying girl whole flight"
Pros: "The flight crew were really nice and I was really comfortable in the Comfort+ section of the plane. It's a nice upgrade for Delta and hope the other airlines follow suit. Granted I had a very active infant, I didn't have any problems."
Pros: "It was a smooth ride and overall very enjoyable flight as the entertainment was very enjoyable and a lot to choose from"
Cons: "It was a smooth ride and overall very enjoyable flight as the entertainment was very enjoyable and a lot to choose from"

Pros: "Decent food"

Cons: "Why is the complimentary Wi-Fi and messaging only for T-Mobile subscribers?"

Pros: "Snacks included bananas."
Cons: "Forced to gate check a bag that fit within the size constraints."
Pros: "The cinnamon cookies, the in-flight movie selection, and the helpful flight crew helped make this flight not as bad as it could have been."
Cons: "There was an infant in the seat directly behind me that chose to cry and scream through a large part of the flight. The mother of this child did not/was not able to keep the child from crying. Even with headphones on, this child's crying persisted to pierce the ears of every passenger within 5 rows of it."
Cons: "Boarding was ok however person sitting next to me, her seat was double booked. Luckily the other person also got Comfort seat."
Cons: "Flight from LAX to SAN was good once we got across the airport from Westjet terminal to the Delta terminal. LAX is never simple! Comfort on aircraft today is never comfortable unless you pay the extreme pricing of premium seating."
Cons: "Strangely cold!"
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that I didn't get my luggage with me when I arrived to casablanca as I lived 4 hours away from the casablanca. I have to come back the next day to get my luggage. I was very mad about it.plus I noticed one of my luggage has been damaged so now I have to buy another one because I can t use it. It was disgusting."
Pros: "Quick and easy"
Cons: "Everything was as to be expected"
Pros: "Onboarding was easy and smooth. The plane was clean and the seats were comfortable. WiFi easily connected, too. Much better than expected for a budget airline."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "Nothing. Delayed for 4 hours. No time change updates were ever provided at the airport. No communications provided as to why our flight was delayed. No other options given. No food or drink vouchers given & of course, no discounts provided for future travel. Not that would EVER fly Sun Country again"
Cons: "Communication and updates. At the very least, food and drink vouchers. 4 hours is a LONG time to be delayed. Extra points had the airline reimbursed their $40 ONE WAY bag fee regardless whether it’s a carry on or checked luggage."
Cons: "It was delayed 3 hours due to rain that lasted about 30 minutes"
Pros: "Not crowded, and enough space"
Cons: "My luggage was lost"
Pros: "I got to change my seat"
Cons: "The flight attendants were rude. Our flight was delayed and we were not updated nor given a reason as to why."
Pros: "Everything went amazing and smooth! Very well done Sun Country"
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "Video capability or included would be great"
Pros: "the Crew was nice"
Cons: "I already checked in online and paid for a checked bag 24 hours prior to arriving at the airport. I arrived 90 minutes before my flight was boarding and waiting in the bag drop line for over an hour. The agents behind the bag drop receiving kiosks were slow and unorganized. Almost missed my fligh"
Pros: "The flight itself was fine however, I hated have to pay $20 on top of my ticket price for a seat. Next time I'll factor that in and fly delta."
Pros: "The staff was accommodating to my needs especially with having a service animal. Always loved flying with Sun country."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "Was great?"
Cons: "Was a long line to check in, in Minneapolis. No automated check in."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and simple"
Cons: "Our luggage wasn’t put on the flight!!!"
Cons: "It is understandable that flights get cancelled /delayed due to weather conditions but it is NOT ACCEPTABLE to handle the situation the way Sun Country did. My flight was delayed by 3 hours due to weather and I missed my connecting flight. The were was no one available at the San Diego terminal to answer questions and the call wait time was 60+ minutes. Eventually I was told that I would have to make my own arrangements for my connecting flight and the connecting airline (Alaska-which must be an affiliate as I had been booked for a Roundtrip ticket via Sun Country) would be responsible for that. So Sun Country just left me hanging and it was up to me to work with Alaska to complete the second leg of my trip."
Pros: "Flights were on-time, boarding process organized, flight attendants friendly, smooth flight"
Cons: "on line system wouldn't let me pay for my baggage pre-flight (entered info 5x so I had to call, wait 30" for call back, went through just fine over phone. confusion x2 in baggage claim with delays, mix-ups carousels could easily put my bag under the seat in plane #1 but it wouldn't fit under the seat in plane #2 (space size definitely smaller)"
Cons: "45 min. delay waiting for connecting flight from New York. Realize the weather was bad out east so can understand that."
Cons: "Plan was delayed due to mechanical problems. Flight crew was not very friendly"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours, then cancelled, because of a mechanical error, then a diverted inbound aircraft, and then a timed out crew. Gate agents knew next to nothing and we're not helpful or sympathetic. Called the 800 number and they said they could rebook us - two days later. I never made it where I was going. I was only offered a refund for my flight - nothing beyond that."
Pros: "The way they treat the passengers with care."
Cons: "there was no entertainer Chennel"
Cons: "We had to change our tickets from Tuesday to Friday our mother was put in hospice. But she passed away on Monday and we were able to change tickets back to Tuesday but we’re not refunded our 400.00 dollars!"
Cons: "the board time is too inconvenient."
Cons: "No snacks"
Pros: "on-time had special celebration for the pilot. It was his last flight. Passengers all clapped."
Pros: "Food and service rated top for first class"
Cons: "Seat belts very short in first class. Bathroom smells over load!"
Cons: "It was too cold."
Pros: "Clean plane, roomy, easy on off, nice staff"
Cons: "No free snacks, no free entertainment"
Pros: "The boarding method went the quickest of all flights I've been on for both flights. Check-in in MSP was quick and some of the attendants were friendly based on what I overheard. Staff in SAN was friendly."
Cons: "A new mom was in the aisle walking to keep her baby quiet and to stretch her legs (after the drink, snack, and trash carts had gone by) and had her back to a flight attendant also coming down the aisle. She was talking to another parent on the flight when the attendant came behind her and told the woman, "Excuse me. Some of us are still working." Her tone was suuuuper rude and uncalled for. A friendly "excuse me, please" would have been just fine and would have gotten the job done. I went to the bathroom a couple minutes later and the attendant was on her break and eating, so maybe she was hangry, but still! Seats were uncomfortable on both flights, but not as bad as Spirit Airlines. I had bad low back pain afterwards, even after getting up to walk partway through the flight. This is something I've experienced on a couple other airlines too, but the legroom on planes has gotten worse. For those of us with long legs, it's a huge pain. I'm 5'9", so I can't imagine how it is for someone taller. The legroom on Sun Country was just as bad as other flights. Probably a strange complaint, but the seat back pocket had a bar running in the hem, so when I put my water bottle inside, the entire pocket stuck out as far as my water bottle. This meant I had to choose between having the pocket rub against my knees or hold my water bottle between my thighs. Neither were ideal. The check-in in San Diego was painfully slow. There were three people standing there, but only one person seemed to be checking people in. The staff was friendly here. A Sun Country employee at MSP told a man he had to check his carry-on suitcase because the wheels stuck out of Sun Country's tiny metal carry-on test box a CENTIMETER. I kid you not. Absolutely ridiculous. I saw much larger luggage come onto the flight. The woman who checked me in was quick but I wasn't able to ask any questions before being sent away. No free snacks or entertainment which seem to be included on most other similarly priced airlines. The food for purchase (burgers and Jimmy Johns or something) made the plane smell bad. I asked for coffee with cream and sugar as my complimentary drink and was given the powdered creamer packets. Fine, okay, I understand if that's all they have, but then I saw them walking through the aisle later offering coffee and they had creamer cups in their aprons! No one asked me which kind I wanted. :("
Pros: "Great flight. Very friendly flight crew."
Pros: "low price flight attendants offered multiple rounds of beverages seat was reasonably comfortable"
Cons: "long delay for unclear reasons (problem with a printer?) no wifi available in flight"
Pros: "Easy boarding Nice Staff"
Pros: "Stewardesses smiled a lot Safe flight"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Lucked out with no one in the middle seat again.."
Cons: "I was in row 9 so my seat didn't recline because the exit row was behind me which literally made me furious. I was so uncomfortable I asked a flight attendant for a pillow & she said they didn't have any when I in fact saw the overhead compartment in the front of the plane with pillows in it while boarding... I found that super rude."
Pros: "Direct flight and it was on time!! Flight attendants were friendly."
Cons: "Could have used a little more space or a reclining seat."
Pros: "So easy, totally enjoyed the Check in to landing!"
Pros: "Sun Country air is great. I'd take them again. Our flight got delayed at our start point and when we got to Minneapolis for our connecting flight, they held all the applicable connecting flights for us. That's something that no other airline will so. I haven't had that happen since the 80's! The staff was pleasant too. An all over great airline"
Cons: "Everyone knows that traveling with a child is tough, but most of us have to do it. All the passengers were very empathetic and trying to help me entertain my child and the flight attendants on both flights to and from were so rude and judgmental with me. They made a tough flight so much more emotionally draining. They gave me looks, as I was walking my child (the only thing that made him happy) they'd say "Where's your seat??" and make us go back to our seat whenever we were up trying to get him to calm down. No turbulence or anything. It was a nightmare! I've used Delta in the past and they were so much more accommodating and helpful."
Pros: "No frills"
Pros: "on time and no problem getting seats I wanted"
Cons: "Given unsafe seat. Had to change at last minute prior to landing, by a very abrupt flight attendant. Seat should have been red lined. Another passenger where I was moved to had a similar experience. My flight attendant told me that I should have reported the issue earlier. How was I to know that any seatback that goes up 2 inches short of vertical is bad. Am I to know the airline or FAA rules?"
Cons: "I have never been so cold on a flight. I thought I was going to loose feeling in my feet. I had to put on socks and stuff my feet in my carry on under the seat in front of me. I had to warm up my shoes between my legs before putting them on to disembark."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Pros: "It was a pretty good flight..."
Pros: "I really appreciate that you continue to honor those of us who have or are serving in the military by allowing us to board early. It is very humbling to be shown this preferential treatment, but it says something very good about Sun Country, so thanks for doing it."
Cons: "Let me start by saying I understand that airlines dont have it easy. Thinning margins, regulations, and insane competition. Sun country delayed their flight (claiming weather, despite no reports) and I missed my connecting flight. Prior to the flight, I told the agent that I would miss my connection and that I should fly later. But they insisted they would hold the connecting plane. I and a dozen passengers were rudely told that we were on the morning flight, and it's up to us what to do over night. Any major airlines would have covered the hotel, and the agents would have actually empathized with passengers. Sun Country is not a quality airlines."
Pros: "So convenient in mpls!"
Cons: "I suggest in flight wifi for purchase on your own device"
Pros: "Flight was right on time and attendants were awesome."
Pros: "punctuality and ease for boarding."
Cons: "seats were below expectations on comfort. Online checkin was not available. website is poor."
Pros: "All of the crew were very cheerful, energetic and helpful."
Pros: "Space in between seats"
Cons: "Would be nice if snack was offered - free of charge."
Pros: "The Rooom!!"
Cons: "Food Coices. It would be nice to have some Ketogenic options. Nuts, meat and cheese without the breads."
Pros: "Nice leg room and friendly workers."

Very rood and very derty

No frills airline. Aircraft are clean and staff friendly.

All was excellent

Had to cancel flight as it was delayed by 12 hours

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I won't fly this airline again."
Pros: "Boarding was easy, there was sufficient leg room"
Cons: "No snacks unless you want to pay an arm and a leg. One stewardess snapped at me when I tried to touch a bag of chips to move it and see what was available. She could’ve been a lot friendlier! I had no way of seeing what was on the cart from my seat and had to rely on her to tell me what was available. After I bought something and she passed by, I saw something else I’d rather have but it was too late by then….and she didn’t list it as an option. In flight movies would’ve been nice, too."
Pros: "The flight from CVG to LAS pretty quick"
Cons: "Allegiance staff at Check-in staff are very rude AMD full of themselves, instead of explaining they expect every traveler know policies of allegiant, there are no boarding pass scanners and to print for you they want $5 if not they force to download their app so that you can get the boarding pass that can be read by TSA scanners ridiculous!!"
Cons: "They left on time with 46 pax and took over a 2 hour delay. Then my bag did not show up."
Cons: "Communication with the customers"
Pros: "Easy boarding"
Cons: "Half the flight didn't wear masks, crew didn't bother to enforce."
Cons: "Was surprised to see 0 social distancing in the plane. It was packed and not everyone had masks. Should be mandatory."
Cons: "Two hour delay"
Pros: "Good crew"

Cons: "The padding on these seats."
Pros: "Flight attendants were great."
Cons: "Bag check agent could have been a little more friendly."
Pros: "Quick direct flight that wasn't packed"
Cons: "The woman that checked my bag kept calling me "sir" and after I corrected her a second time she rolled her eyes and said "oh, I don't even look up" I am not a man. For Pete's sake pay attention."
Pros: "Fast boarding. Crew were pleasant."
Cons: "Free beverages"
Pros: "We had about a 45 minute weather delay but those things can't be helped. The Captain kept us informed and he flew like superman getting us through all that crazy wind coming into Las Vegas. The plane was new and clean, the crew was great. Love that wide aisle...it eliminates that sardine feeling!!"
Pros: "The boarding wasn’t smooth, there were 3 women at the podium listing zones and it was very mumbled and low, quite hard to hear despite the small area dedicated to Allegiant passengers."
Cons: "The women at the podium listing flights could have been friendlier and more customer service oriented... there was a lot of mumbling into the speaker for boarding ... and the person kept giggling into the mic. Once past boarding, everything was great !"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Crew unfriendly, sometimes rude"
Pros: "The crew was great. The flight arrived early and boarding was smooth. Seats were not that great. Would definitely fly with them again."
Cons: "A free beverage and snack."
Pros: "No The crew was not friendly at all"
Cons: "I honestly am angry that I was charged for things others where not.This is ridiculous"
Pros: "Allegiant knows how to get people off and back on the plane ASAP. The last few flights I have taken we left early and arrived earlier than planned because of this. Crew was friendly. I like the fact the flights are direct and no layovers at airports."
Pros: "Timing and ease of travel"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Arrived ahead of schedule."
Cons: "Airbus seats are as uncomfortable as school bus seats."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Being stranded for 6 hours in the airport for no weather reason, with no compensation."
Cons: "Delays!!"
Pros: "To be honest nothing"
Cons: "Missed flight any no one was willing to help us pure BS"
Cons: "7.5HR DELAY. LOST A DAY. ARRIVING AT 3AM VS 6:30PM TECH ISSUES NOT ALLOWING CHECKIN ONLINE POORLY TRAINED STAFF AND SUPERIORS AT CHECKIN ONE HR ON TARMAC AS PER HEADCOUNT ISSUE WHEREBY, TWICE ASKED ON PLANE WHO I WAS. EMBARASSING. RUINED MY VACA WITH MY HUSBAND SANS KIDS:-(((((("
Pros: "The price."
Cons: "Everything about Aligiant is horrible. Service, attitude, even the pilots can’t land smoothly. As a diabetic, they don’t even give you water withiit paying for it. Had my wallet in my checked bag and almost had a health issue."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Last minute delay due to a plane malfunction. Was told very last minute. Seemed like there were no quick resolutions in play. Had to wait over three hours to fly out, doesnt that entail compensation by law?"
Pros: "Flight crew was friendly and smooth flight."
Cons: "Plane was noticeably old and dirty"
Pros: "I liked that the flight was fast but I was coming from Vegas so it’s not that far."
Cons: "They charged me $50 for a carry on even after I told them repeatedly that I tried to change it on my ticket days before I was leaving. It would not let me change it or even check in on the mobile app. It was very hot and we had to wait for awhile before any air conditioning started. No entertainment or complimentary drinks."
Pros: "Free bags for military. Friendly, efficient, on time, price. It was all good."
Cons: "Nothing. Excellent flight."
Pros: "Mostly the Price! Wonderful Crew Too!"
Cons: "Wish they had flights on Friday and later on Sunday..."
Pros: "Didn't mind paying for bags, seat, snacks, drinks,.....but a 10hour delay!!!! UNEXCEPTABLE Will NEVER use this airline again!!!"
Cons: "10hour delay!!! No weather problem.."
Pros: "The view through a milkey-filmed window."
Cons: "Airplane would have been nicer and lighter if the 4 attendants would have cleaned it."
Pros: "Very efficient service... actually a good experience."
Cons: "The airline nickel and dimes for everything."
Pros: "Efficient check in, no hidden fees (all were explained via email well before the flight), fast boarding, take off and unloading. Time left and arrived on time. The staff was extremely friendly."
Cons: "The seats were bare bones and not very comfortable but I guess that's what helps keep costs down."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I paid for 1A. Was moved because "the crew needed the seat" to the middle. There were SO many open seats. Was unacceptable."
Pros: "The food vouchers for 5 hour wait and water/beverages available. Liked alligent app for boarding pass available without printing."
Cons: "The 5 hour wait while the plane was worked on was unexpected. Not a lot of extra space for a near 6 hour flight. Seats do NOT recline at all. The other plane they boarded us on smelled like dirty shoes or diaper."
Pros: "Cost. I felt like I got what I paid for. With big name carriers I'm never quite sure what I'm paying for. Allegiant got me from point A to point B in the same manner. I just didn't get complimentary peanuts. And I'm quite okay with that. Seating, space, cleanliness was the same as other carriers. As long as Allegiant maintains their planes I'll keep flying with them."
Cons: "Everything was satisfactory. I don't have any complaints about this flight."
Cons: "After arriving to the airport to check in we were told there was a 6 hr delay. Thanks for the heads up since we could've hung out more before heading to the airport."
Pros: "Easy boarding, smooth flight, quick cart service, fast flying"
Cons: "Seats are so small I was window seat with two men who were jammed up so uncomfortably in their seats I felt bad. I was cramped cause they had no choice but to spill over in my seat. I understand safety is important but unless the plane is in middle of taking off or landing, or horrible turbulence anyone should be able to use the bathroom. We had landed and were just sitting and waiting on a gate to open. My fellow travler happened to be on her period n was told No she could not use the bathroom. After the 3rd time of her being sent back I got up with her and a tampon in hand n told the staff they had no choice she was using that bathroom. Of course they had to phone the captain and ask for permission which he ok it, but seriously , what are we supposed to do just sit in our blood. That was not cool."
Pros: "Not a thing"
Cons: "Didn't like the fact that they canceled the entire flight on the day of the flight so I had to pay for a last minute ticket which was much more expensive!"
Cons: "Leg space tight. Seat didn't recline. They said the maximum width on the under seat personal item is 7 inches but space is big enough for wider than that. I felt that was misleading."
Pros: "Very clean, great staff, smooth flight, easy boarding. All the things you could expect for a great experience. First time flying with this airline so I didn't know what to expect but it was great!"
Pros: "Evertything was on schedule ."
Pros: "The price"

Generally it was a good trip but price was high .

Cons: "There was a 10 minutes delay"
Cons: "No bags to go to overhead bin"
Pros: "TV and movie choices should be according to 2018 instead of1980. Also TV should be from running Era"
Pros: "My trip started off with airplane problems from the beginning. From my flight being delayed multiple times by air china to the overly packed united to the confusion of the non updated confirmation numbers or the e-ticket number. Even on the day I left upon arriving to the airport my confirmation number they had just given me after all the prior problems still didn't work. Air china had mediocre food with okay entertainment except my headset jack on the TV was broke and I couldn't watch anything. On the last air china flight from Bejing to Bangkok. I couldn't even charge my phone, watch any entertainment and basically was just stuck with no WiFi. Justfly wouldn't compensate for the changes on their end and said I myself would have to ask the airlines for compensation which the.the airlines directed me no where for compensation or even to upgrade my seat. Now I'm finally in Thailand but I'm scared of my return."
Cons: "Everything was really not great. Air china had mediocre food that some of it wasn't bad but other was so so."
Pros: "Captain and crew were brilliant, kept passengers informed throughout as to the delays, as a result all passengers were patient and understanding. Not much more could have been done to improve the experience as the snow and conditions at Dublin airport were out of their hands."
Pros: "My husband and i we want to seat next to each other"
Cons: "1) Chicago O'Hare Airport Airline staff very rude. 2) from Los Angeles to Chicago my husband and i are not sitting to each other. My husband is upset. 3) from Chicago to Los Angeles my husband and i are not sitting to each other. It happened again. Very disappointing. We think the airline doing this intentionally."
Pros: "Everything is smoothie"
Cons: "I have not find any"
Pros: "The plane left on time and arrived early. I'm usually apprehensive about connecting on a domestic travel, but things went perfectly!"
Pros: "The price was unreal so I had to jump on this, I was able to get on and off with my backpack no problem. The flights were good, captains were very communicative about times, expectations and when turbulence was present."
Cons: "The check in had to be done in person because of the need to check my bag size, I felt a little insulted that I would have to be checked on my honesty. When I got to the check in it was like watching a special forces team measuring and prodding peoples bags to get them in to the little box even when the shapes were the reason they couldn't fit, not the size of the bags. I literally watched someone fit their bag and the attendant take it out and make it misshaped for the box and show how it didn't slide in. I had no issues with my luggage, but that sucked to watch happen to others. The food and drinks came about 10 minutes before the plane landed."
Pros: "On time departure"
Cons: "No complementary food. Old plane, no great entertainment options (should also have subtitles for hard of hearing). Terminal boarding area was too cold."
Pros: "Dr usus I"
Cons: "The keys"
Pros: "Flight was in time and smooth. Crew was friendly and active in the cabin."
Cons: "Seats were very close together and leg room was very limited. It was difficult to get in and out of the window seat area."
Pros: "Arrived an extra 20 minutes early and the bags came quickly out, very happy about that!!"
Cons: "Overpriced entertainment--I'm not sure why there is a charge at all. Also, didn't get to choose my seat and got stuck one row ahead of the bathrooms in the back of the plane--worst seat ever. Apparently everyone on the plane had to use the bathroom at least 3 times during the flight--plus the drink cart went by another 10 times."
Pros: "The crew The entertainment options The power options The drinks"
Cons: "10 minutes earlier and the food would have been better. Then again, 10 minutes earlier and wouldn’t have made flight."
Pros: "Crew help and service"
Cons: "Lending was bumpy. , Internet was not Working and no entertainment chenal as well"
Pros: "They got my vegetarian food order right"
Cons: "Old airplanes both there and back, we had a choice of a few movies on a TV that we couldn't access on demand so you had to start half way through, and the quality was appalling. We were supposedly promised we could stream onto our devices via wifi but this didn't happen"
Pros: "It got us from a to b but not much more to be said!"
Cons: "The idea of the entertainment system broadcast to your hand held device is fine - it didn't work for me though."
Cons: "Such a downgrade from other airlines! Awful! They board backwards. Usually the back seats board on the plane after the special needs people. Makes more sense, people are out of the way. My water was poured into a cup from a big water battle. I like how Jetblue gives me a personal water bottle and a variety of snack option. I was given a "snack mix" on this flight which was not good. I hated this flight and there were NO televisions, or usb ports to charge phones. Never again. They didn't even have enough room for carry on bags for everyone. Thank god I packed light and didn't need to use that option. Good to know United Airlines has crappy everything."
Pros: "Staff"
Cons: "Delays, multiple gate changes"
Pros: "Lack of services for price"
Cons: "Lack of services for price"
Pros: "Nothing!!! It was handled in a terrible way"
Cons: "The way they didn't care"
Pros: "The plane was newer at least. And I made a big enough stink when they made me check my bubble-wrapped framed paintings that they actually did get hand carried and made it okay."
Cons: "These are the smallest seats I have ever experienced on a domestic airline. I'm 6'-4" and I couldn't fit comfortably on their newer 737. The thing that took the cake was that the cabin crew absolutely refused to let me take one of the 5 empty exit row seats telling me that it wasn't fair to the people who paid more, which absolutely enraged me. So then apparently it's also fair that their seats will fit someone who is 5'-4" comfortably but not someone who is 6'-4"?? So it's fair that I can't afford to pay an extra $100+ for it after my profession got gutted in the recession and I make a fraction now of that I used to make? Making your customers suffer for no good reason is inexcusable. I will not be flying United again. Ever."
Pros: "Crew was nice and lots of different choices of food."
Cons: "So crowded on the plane you could barely even use the restroom."
Cons: "We reserved wheelchair assistance prior to the flight. We had to wait an extended amount of time to actually get the wheelchair assistance with 5 kids 7 and under. Due to the wait we almost missed our flight, we were literally the last to board the plane. We were hoping to grab some breakfast for the kids as we had a long flight and did not have time to do so because of this delay. This is why we called ahead to reserve the wheelchair. The people checking in did not seem to care about the delay and only told us to be patient. Sad, unfortunate experience with accessibility issues."
Cons: "Flight was late. Flight attendants were okay. Not that helpful or nice"
Cons: "we got 3 separate middle seats while traveling with a 4 year old. United knows his age, do they really expect him to sit alone? Fortunately the flight attendant and other passengers were very helpful."
Pros: "Crew. Aircraft selection."
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: "Joe H was amazing!!!"
Cons: "No leg room, seats uncomfortable and tiny. Wifi is expensive. Plane took off late due to a flight attendant being late. And now we're 40 late to put destination."
Cons: "several people assigned to the same seats, mine included. lots of last minute moving around."
Pros: "Just. O. K"
Pros: "Some of the people I dealt with were nice. All of the flight attendants and pilots were nice."
Cons: "United only had one person working to check people in, and due to a lady with 8+ bags that the only agent had to take 20+ minutes with (while the line stacked up behind us), we ended up missing the first leg of our flight. Told us our bags would be checked all the way through, and they weren't. Checked bag got lost on the way back (again, due to misinformation from United on whether our bag would be checked all the way through), and when we got them back they had obviously been rooted through, with no note left by TSA. I fly often, and this was one of the worst flying experiences of my life."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything United is horrible worse airline ever!!!!! Never will I fly with United ever again"
Pros: "Crowded like sardines Groups 4 & 5 were told you must check your carry-on bags Wifi didn't work for all devices Pilot had to make second approach, because he was too freaking low!!"
Cons: "The crew no food no pillow no blanket"
Pros: "Crew & flight! Ladies were really nice & we were about 45 mins early which is always a plus!"
Cons: "No in-seat chargers No entertainment Small seats"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "First of all the flight was delayed for hours for no reason then the plane got packed because it was delayed so they kept on selling tickets to fill up the plane because the plane was half empty all of a sudden the plane was full of people no more chairs I tried to get the exit row from where you do a check in to get your pass to go through security my credit card was not being excepted nothing wrong with my credit card it worked totally fine in the airport restaurants and for other uses I had to use for but it would not work to upgrade my seat to an exit row united is the worst airline ever seen in my life I am a little bit big for normal size I totally understand that but when you have people that are big like me not that big I'm only 61 230 pounds I was put all the way in the back would not be able to fit in my chair for a four hour flight and when the plane had three exit rows available and the crew for their flight 395 United from Chicago to O'Hare October 18 I will never forget this day totally beautiful day in the city Chicago United Airline decided to delay to make more money I understand it's good business but there are people arranged for the flight do you have available of time therefore now the plane is totally full understand you're trying to make more money this is not the worst of it here comes so when I asked to get the extra chair because my credit card was not working when I got my pass to go through security at that point the exit chair was $67 to upgrade I was totally afford was willing to pay because I understand my size but then when I got to my flight into my airplane that's the airplane Stewart to allow me to get a extra chair and I told her I would pay for it then the lady came and told me a ridiculous price told me $149 not acceptable was not able to afford double the price when I already purchased a ticket and was willing to pay the $67 that's one issue on how the plane flight started when we are sitting on the runway for over one hour and not moving something is wrong with the plane they're saying then we should not be waiting over four hours of delayed then we should've been put in on a new plane fine you're looking to make more money this is good business whoever was the decision-maker of tonight needs to be fired from United or O'Hare airport when all of this is going on don't forget now I am the last seat on the airplane but cannot fit in my seat my knees are smashed against the seat the seat that's not decline it is the last row in the airplane now i'm totally not comfortable that's fine so now the store is giving drinks and taking orders for people to eat or order their food when the story gets towards the back she says we are totally out of food packs we only have snacks which is peanuts after a delay of an airplane I think you should understand it's obviously the people are hungry in the airplane for your mistake there are kids that were on the airplane crying there was a lot of chaos in this flight"
Pros: "Crew staff went out of his way to find something for my aisle to snack on when the person next to me asked if there was any snacks on the plane. The plane had to be changed for another plane due to a mechanical issue on the first plane, and the new plane had not been stocked with food after it's previous flight, yet the crew member was able to scrounge up some snacks for us! Also got complimentary directtv - nice, but doesn't make up for not getting home in time yet again."
Cons: "United sucks. I have flown it maybe 10-12 times in the past 2.5 years, mostly back and forth between Chicago and Boston. I have had only 3 round trip flights go without a hitch. Every other trip was delayed. This time 4 hours on my return flight to Boston due to a plane switch, boarding of a new plane to discover a mechanical issue, deboarding, waiting for a new plane, then boarding and sitting on the ground for another 40 min before we were able to take off. I was delayed 1.5 hours on the way to Chicago due to another plane swap (no joke). Still doesn't top but my worst 5 hour delay in Chicago on the way back to Boston because the captain didn't show up. United is atrocious and is my last choice or any airline. Only fly when I'm absolutely forced to now due to no other reasonable choices. They are below delta, JetBlue, American, southwest, and embarrassingly, spirit as well. Terrible."
Pros: "People were nice."
Cons: "No wifi and no food."
Pros: "Crew seemed tired or bored and the food selection for a long flight was limited. I'm not going to fly with them again. Just like last time the flight was late leaving, even though the plane arrived early."
Pros: "Didn't fly to San Diego-got rerouted to LAX instead. Had I continued to San Diego I would have landed almost 6 hours later than my previous arrival time all because of delays at the gate in Harriaburg. An original 30 minute delay from weather is understandable, and by the time the aircraft arrives you'd think they'd be ready to deplane and get it rolling quickly. Nope, not all. I think it was amateur day in Harriaburg because it was like no one knew what to do and nobody could make their minds up."
Cons: "See above. This is why I drive everywhere."
Pros: "The space and complimentary drinks."
Cons: "The boarding process was not organized."
Pros: "I got there alive."
Cons: "They change our gate 3 times and one of those times had us walk back to entire different concourse. Then it took forever once we got on the actually plane and we had no air, it was so hot. The ride was bumpy and the air was again not very strong so we are hot and bouncing around. Finally, we get to San Diego and....they change our baggage claim. United needs to get it together or at least give us a free drink when they can't get organized."
Cons: "Lack of communication. Kept us belted down for s very long time. Lacked food service, lacked water service till the very end of the lock down. Then we were given the option to leave the plane as the doors were to be disarmed. But if we did the plane could get clearence and leave with no warning. I missed my connecting transportation, had to scrape my weekend plans, currently searching for a place to stay tonight while they locate my bag. I am cold and left my jacket in my bag. The United counter people are blaming it on the weather. I am sure everything was delayed by the laxadaysical baggage loader. The one person ( or lack of help loading the bags on the plane completely altered my travel plans. I requested assistance for hotel only to be told they are full when in fact several are vacant on the Internet. I should of videotaped the baggage loading in Canada, it would of went viral."
Pros: "The airplane was new and clean"
Cons: "The pre-boarding staff were rude and not helpful. I had requested an aisle seat when I booked my flight. Somewhere along the line, my seat was changed to a middle seat. When I asked the staff if I could switch to an aisle seat to help accommodate my sciatica, they told me, "sorry, we can't help you, you'll just have to ask another passenger." Neither crew member was willing to work with me or hear my concerns. So much for flying the friendly skies...well I guess we were still on land, so may that principle had not yet taken effect."
Pros: "Punctuality"
Cons: "Food. It is a very long time and there no food enough"
Cons: "I have flown with United on many occasions, several of which were international flights however I was never more uncomfortable on a flight than I was in economy on my flight from ORD to SAN."
Pros: "I was comfortable."
Cons: "Nothing, the flight was fine."
Pros: "Nothing, worst flight expirence I’ve ever had."
Cons: "The flight just kept getting delayed over and over with no explanation as to why. We sat there all day waiting and finally they just got another aircraft for Buffalo, New York. Oh, and nobody knows how to move with any sense of urgency or hustle whatsoever, so be prepared to wait for everything."
Pros: "Quick boarding. Crew was awesome."
Cons: "WiFi and in flight entertainment but I don’t see frontier changing that"
Pros: "It was all pretty bad."
Cons: "The baggage policy wasn’t enforced at all, so I realized I could have saved $40 and had my backpack under my seat as my personal item since most others did. They charge for seltzer water. No internet options. Male flight attendant made inappropriate jokes and the rest of the staff was rude and blunt. Will not fly this airline again."
Pros: "Super uncomfortable seats. Over an hour late"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Had to pay for a small check-in."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "All employees were friendly. They did a great job of keeping things moving when we were boarding, they also did a great job dealing with difficult passengers. The plane was clean and was very nice. I think the plane was new and I enjoyed the flight very much."
Pros: "Same like up"
Cons: "Same like up"
Pros: "Frontier company needs to be more professional and respect the time they assign for ... the reception guy tell me the gate is close 45 minute from the flight time When I was 15 minute early from the time flight thats disgusting . So I changed my reservation for Friday at 6:20 pm same time . Hope they didn’t come with another excuse ."
Cons: "Frontier company needs to be more professional and respect the time they assign for ... the reception guy tell me the gate is close 45 minute from the flight time When I was 15 minute early from the time flight thats disgusting . So I changed my reservation for Friday at 6:20 pm same time . Hope they didn’t come with another excuse ."
Pros: "Non stop to Austin, TX from San Diego, CA"
Cons: "Could not pay up front for luggage on website. Luggage was more than the ticket. I need to take medications in a carry on to avoid them being stolen by baggage handlers who go through your luggage. I have never had to pay for that privilege. Was only offered items for purchase. I have a medical condition and need ice water all the time. It wasn't available."
Cons: "No reclining seats"
Pros: "Flight duration"
Cons: "The delayed plane that they wouldn't tell me why it was delayed"
Pros: "STAFF WAS FRIENDLY"
Cons: "SEATS ARE VERY UNCOMFORTABLE"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed an hour and a half because a tire blew and then we had to switch planes. The seats were hard and small."
Pros: "Nothing. Literally nothing at all."
Cons: "This situation is a clear statement about the unfortunate state of affairs regarding "customer service". If anyone uses the bromide "the customer is all important", cite this example as proof positive of the lie that is that tired statement. This circumstance, was, essentially no one's fault and yet the employee reaction on behalf of Frontier airlines speaks volumes to the general attitude that the ORGANIZATION takes toward its paying customers. Due to delays on the first leg of the trip from DC to Denver, the connecting flight was missed. This is understandable on its own, as I have no expectation that a second flight would be held for me. However, the fact that Frontier, as an organization, feels ABSOLUTELY NO OBLIGATION WHATSOEVER to assisting their customers in arriving to their ultimate destination in a timely manner means they will never, EVER, get my money again. To make matters worse, the two options they DID offer, were unacceptable: 1) Offered a flight to an airport an hour away from my destination & 2) Offered a flight to my actual destination...two days later (in the airport on Tuesday; they offered to get me on a flight to my destination Thursday) AND this offer with absolutely no assistance regarding sleeping arrangements for TWO NIGHTS. In short, trip was complicated for which I do not blame Frontier. However, their complete lack of customer service to a paying customer ultimately has cost them future customers. My family travels frequently and I will certainly advise any and all persons I know NOT TO EVER TRAVEL ON FRONTIER AIRLINES! I will, however, recommend the FAR MORE CUSTOMER FRIENDLY DELTA airlines)"
Pros: "NA"
Cons: "Frontier just lost this customer for life. I'll pay a hundred dollars more to fly United. Getting socked in the face and drug out of my seat by the SS sounds more appealing than ever flying with Frontier again."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The staff was rude, line to check in luggage was huge because they were understaffed. If you don't get your bags checked in 45 minutes before your flight, you don't get on your flight. I had already been in line for 20 minutes and when I got the the desk at 40 minutes until my fllight, she said "too bad." Great Mother's Day for me sitting in the airport for 7 hours until the next flight out. Girl was horrible and totally rude. Never again."
Pros: "Bigger plan. Not over booked"
Cons: "Price of food"
Pros: "The crew had a smile and were friendly."
Cons: "Look, it's a budget carrier. I get that. But I add a bag to my flight and my ticket is now what it would have cost to fly Southwest. I'm 6'4", and I *barely* fit into the seats. My knees touched the seat in front of me the whole flight. And the seats don't recline. To make everything just perfect, they lost my luggage on the flight home, and the lady who worked with Frontier who took all 15 (?) of us who had lost luggage over to make a claim said "this is normal for flights coming from Denver - it's a hub for Frontier, so luggage gets misplaced all the time." I'm sorry, that's not acceptable as an answer. I've never had a lost bag while flying with others, so that's what I will do from now on."
Pros: "Fast boarding. Crew is super friendly. Thats about it."
Cons: "Seats are increadebly uncomfortable. $3 for a soda, not even a bag of peanuts is offered here. No entertainmet, no movies, no wifi. Not even a magazine No tray where to put your food or ipad. no pillow, no blankets. $40 for a carry-on bag $20 to pick your own seat at checkin."
Pros: "On tome"
Pros: "It's cheap which is nice but beware of hidden fees"
Cons: "It's more expensive to CARRY on your luggage rather then check it!!!!! I feel like it's a sneaky way to charge you as people mostly try to carry on. They do that to AVOID extra charges. May sound petty but it really irked me. On another note, when ordering a cocktail you pay on a IPAD which asks you the percentage of gratuity you would like to leave. Grossly inappropriate as flight crew cannot except tips under FAA law."
Cons: "They charged 40 dollars just to bring a carry on suitcase onto the plane. That's crazy expensive!"
Pros: "Plane was on time and boarding was easy ."
Cons: "How unprofessional the crew was . Never heard the captain during turbulences . We took a red eye flight and the flight attendant kept waking us up to tell us to let us when the seat belt sign was on or off. Then on the way back , one of the flight was talking/ laughing so hard in the back that the whole plane could hear . And finally , we got to hear a long 5 minutes sales pitch about the new flights Spirit Airlines added . Seats don't recline ."
Cons: "We have several flight delays with no connecting flights to our destination. We were rerouted to another city, rented a rental vehicle, and then continued to our final destination."
Pros: "Maybe it's my own fault for not doing the research, but I had the expectation that carry on luggage is free. That is not the case with Frontier airlines and when I brought it up with an employee was told that "you get what you pay for" I was pretty upset with their comment and had I known about the charge I would have booked with another airline since that $45 carry on fee made it a more expensive flight than was available at the competing airline."
Pros: "Flight Crew was the standard affair."
Cons: "the 'customer service' for baggage handling or lack there of. Terrible if it were free, but as a paying customer atrocious. Also didn't appreciate the tiny trays that can barely hold an iPhone 6."
Pros: "Smooth boarding and left on time. Good temperature on board."
Cons: "Seats do not recline, are not very padded, and no headrest. Very tight seat spacing (no legroom). I am not a very large person and my knees were hitting the seat in front of me. Only free beverage is water. No free snack. No inflight magazine. I usually fly Southwest but they didn't have a flight when I needed to go. Frontier was on par with SWA in terms of price, but far inferior in terms of onboard experience. I will not fly them again, it was quite an uncomfortable flight."
Cons: "The seats are very uncomfortable. To many little charges; i.e. Snack drinks, baggage going and coming, seat selection. I would consider taking another airline and paying a higher price. Faulty/broken arm rest. Flight attendants slightly rude/short with passengers. Initially, the flight was cheaper but ended up being the same cost as every other airline once all the additional charges were added. What I thought was a positive for this airline quickly became a negative outcome."
Pros: "The flight was cheap, the crew was nice, the airplane was clean and they got me to my destination on time with no delays. What more could you ask for!?"
Cons: "If I had to complain about something I would say the seats were a bit uncomfortable and the tray tables were very small, but it is nothing short of what I would expect of a 3hr flight for under $200. ^_^"
Cons: "On both flights, the for sale snack options were poorly stocked... no menu cards in my row, when I asked for one (because they told us to chose before they got to us).... they brought me one that was torn and falling apart Most folks around me were surprised they couldn't get water or coffee without paying extra."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Two-way flight was booked and paid for two months in advance. The day of first flight Frontier sent email notification that return flight was, "Adjusted". Frontier made an adjustment to all its passangers without their knowledge or approval. The change was a nine (9) hour layover arriving at midnight! No full-paying customer would ever consent or pay to sit at an airport for 9 hours!! This was the only available flight Frontier had available on this travel day. Flight was canceled and reimbursed, however we're still out lots of $ in order to last minute book a one-way flight with another airline. Frontier = Worst Airline - avoid the stress and headache.. Please do NOT fly with Fronteir Airlines."
Pros: "Happy energetic voice of pilot"
Cons: "Plane left an hour late."
Pros: "The plane was comfortable. Staff was friendly"
Cons: "There were significant delays without any notification whatsoever. If I hadn't looked on the website repeatedly I would not know of the changing departure times. No apologies or explanations were given while we all waited more than two hours."
Pros: "The flight itself was OK considering the price."
Cons: "My luggage (and those of a few other passengers) did not arrive with me and I spent one hour for bagage claim. There was no clear reason for that: it was a direct flight and the luggage was registered two hour before the departure. However the luggage was finally delivered to my hotel the next morning."
Pros: "Great service from Frontier Airlines. I had to change flights to an earlier date and time and it was an extremely smooth and simple process."
Cons: "No reclining seat...maybe mine was broken."
Cons: "Price shown in search engine is not accurate. When you book the flight you are forced to choose a seat and every single seat on the airplane has an upcharge ($5 minimum but a lot more for the front of the plane). They also charge you to take a carry on ($60 at the gate). It was actually more money to carry a bag on that it was to check a bag. They artificially deflate their prices in search engines so they populate 1st and then up charge you when you get to the airport. The planes are dirty, seats are uncomfortable as the arms are still in your way when they fold up. I've now flown 3 times on frontier and the planes had terrible turbulence on the takeoff and landing. I have nothing good to say about my experience. Take another airline and at least you'll be paying the correct price up front, not weaseled into paying more when you check in for your flight."
Pros: "^"
Cons: "^"
Cons: "Delayed"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I shouldn't have to choose to sit in the exit row in order to get enough legroom to fit comfortably in a flight where I'm not going to get food, peanuts, or a seat that reclines. Every leg of my trip was this way. On my way out I flew a red-eye and planned to sleep because I had business to deal with once I landed. Without legroom or being able to recline I was too uncomfortable to get any sleep. I also had to pay for carry-on AND check baggage? Is a person not supposed to bring anything with them when they fly? Lastly, if I wanted to sit anywhere comfortable or in a reclining seat I again have to pay to upgrade? This fact was unknown to me until the online check in process. Overall, I'm very dissatisfied with my experience. I have another trip next week and I already chose to pay $100 more for American Airlines instead of frontier, I will have comfort, food, wifi, won't have to pay for my baggage. This is America, we expect comfort. At least give us wifi. My experience with Frontier has made up my mind about paying more to get treated the way I deserve, not as if I was flying in a C130 Cargo plane."
Pros: "The Crew"
Cons: "Cost to buy seats and carryons is a joke the flight becomes just as expensive as the standard commercial flights on American Southwest etc, I will not fly Frontier again if I can avoid it."
Cons: "Almost missed our connection because we didn't see the email. A text would have been more appropriate as would them announcing it over the loud speaker in the airport like every other flight. No food or entertainment, uncomfortable seats and the smallest trays that could barely hold a cup."
Cons: "my mother in law was supposed to be on a flight Fri morning and was delayed until 2am Saturday in the middle of the night. awful service."
Pros: "Price is comfortable"
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable"
Cons: "Lost my bag, enough said"
Cons: "Size of tray table, no entertainment, no wifi, literally just sit uncomfortably and stare straight ahead. Man I used to love frontier but y'all are terrible now."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "The "new" seats are uncomfortable, cramped leg room, having to "buy" your seat and no complimentary soda or small pack of nuts (or pretzels). You pay a lot of $ for not even getting any of that. :("
Cons: "* Molded plastic seats (never seen the like!) * Charged for every little thing so that it ends up not being as cheap as it seems. $60 to check each bag, charge for carry-on as well, charge for choosing a seat, charge for soda/juice/snack.... * Flight was late boarding and then they tried to rush us in and told us to hurry as if it were our fault. We then sat for ages without being told why. We ended up being 2+ hours late to a destination that was 1 hr 50 min away."
Cons: "We left 20 minutes late because we were "waiting for five people". I only found the reason for the delay after overhearing a flight attendant, not because they made an announcement to keep the passengers informed."
