Airline reviews

Cons: "I would ask that the gate does not share in detail reason for delay in seat assignment is related to getting a family sitting together when the basic rules should apply unilaterally."

Pros: "Got to my destination without any issues"
Cons: "Seats/seating area are too small, and I'm not a big person."

Pros: "No"
Cons: "The flight was delayed almost 6 hours, the crew was rude and the “comfort +” seats had very little leg room ."

Pros: "The flight was on time, the crew was pleasant and looked like they enjoyed working in the air."
Cons: "Our second time on a 787 Dreamliner across the Atlantic as about the same as the the first. The seat pitch is very tight so when a passenger reclines into the next row the seatback nearly touches your face. The Dreamliner seats seem to be very hard and it's difficult to get comfortable."

Cons: "Flight was delayed a bit due to a couple passenger booking/misc issues. 1st class didn’t get gate bevfood service. Oven was busted so my meal wasn’t available. Entertainment console had all channels functional except — not really an issue I just really wanted to have ESPN playing in the background"

Pros: "Son got wings, so was happy."
Cons: "No entertainment."

Cons: "It was late"

Pros: "Helpful"
Cons: "More print media to read on"

Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "Couldn’t hear/understand the pilot"

Pros: "Flight attendant in first class was amazing."

Pros: "Jeff was our flight attendant in first class. He is an excellent flight attendant. He has an amazing attitude and his manner made us feel as if we had been friends with him for years."
Cons: "Passengers who pay retail for first class on domestic flights should get access to the Delta lounges even without the AE card. Other airlines do this, and we have come to expect it."

Pros: "The boarding was fast and very well handled."

Cons: "My flight from Chicago was two hours late and that's why I missed the flight from Atlanta to Buenos Aires. No one helped and did not know that the flight was delayed and I had to find a place to sleep. I'm not satisfied with the experience and I have not yet arrived in Argentina because of the whole"

Cons: "It was delayed"

Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "Chinese Eastern did not try to help and solve my problem."

Pros: "There was a bit of a mixup in boarding the plane but otherwise the flight was good. There was no entertainment system on this short flight. The flight attendants were very pleasant & efficient. They only served snacks on this short flight but were very good at ensuring everyone had at least one or more beverages. The premium seats were very comfortable ."

Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Flight attendant was not willing to go above and beyond as he stated he would. My husband asked for a coke and the flight attendant told him he could only get water."

Pros: "It was a smooth boarding, flight and exit out of the plane."

Pros: "On time departure/arrival despite weather in Atlanta. Always a fan of free messaging and choice of snacks."
Cons: "Delta needs to invest in their gate area at ORD. Understand it’s not a hub but it’s a key business/leisure destination. The MD-80s are ok for a short hop but over 1 hour unless you’re in Comfort+, it’s tight."

Pros: "Snacks, cleanliness and crew"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They take them forever to find me another fly ,make miss my other fly, my work my time and my sleep"

Pros: "Great service, nice agent friendly"

Pros: "Very friendly and professional gate agent and flight attendant"

Cons: "I was unable to fly at all due to a spelling error on my ticket. The airline refused to alter the ticket. Worst experience of my life, ruined my Christmas"

Pros: "Very nice flight and attentive staff. Enjoyed the view of NYC as we flew up the East River, then looped over Nassau County to approach LGA."
Cons: "The male flight attendant who handed out the complimentary drinks and snacks acted a bit strangely. I was very thirsty, and I asked him if I could keep the rest of the can of soda. He neither said yes nor no, but rather completely ignored what I said and just poured my drink and moved on. I was a mildly annoyed, but figured maybe it was policy and he was shy and didn't want to debate the matter. When he took care of the older couple behind us, however, things got really strange. He asked them whether they wanted pretzels or peanuts, but they misheard him and asked for a ginger ale. I happened to know that he did have ginger ale, since my wife had just gotten one, but rather than just pouring the old folks a drink, he repeated himself. "Peanuts or pretzels?" They misheard again and asked him whether he had a diet ginger ale. Again, rather than just pour them the drink, he repeated himself. "Peanuts or pretzels?" This went round and round a few more times -- like a poorly designed computer UI that refuses to accept anything except the correct input -- before the old couple finally figured out the disconnect and picked their snacks before their drinks. Very weird."

Cons: "Layover"

Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Too cold Not friendly boarding agent"

Cons: "Had a death in the family and no one would help me get back home"

Pros: "Seats were comfortable. Snacks!!! Nice flight crew."
Cons: "I liked everything."

Pros: "The Gogo Inflight wifi and entertainment did not work for even a minute. I choose flights based on their amenities and this one had offered full WIFI service which swayed me to choose to fly with Delta. I'm not sure who is to blame about this issue but I'm pretty frustrated that it was completely dysfunctional."

Cons: "Plane was sat broken at gate and needed part to be flown in. 150 minutes delayed. Not acceptable."

Pros: "I missed my flight for the first time and I was having a complete meltdown at the check in desk until the sweetest agent said "oh no worries sweetheart, let's find you another flight back home"... It seems so simple but with the morning I had, this simple act had me in tears! The kindness and patience she showed me was amazing and definitely the reason I will always fly Delta to any and every destination they are able to take me! <3"

Pros: "No fee to get on an earlier flught"
Cons: "When I tried to rebook online this flight was not an option"

Cons: "I am a 5'3" 125# woman who, unfortunately, had a middle seat assignment. The passenger to my right, on the aisle, weighed approximately 375# and took up 1/3 of my seat. The arm was not able to go down comfortably, and when it did it was not usable . The passenger on my left, window seat, was probably 6'7" and had to sit with a man spread in order to fit. I could not move and was extremely uncomfortable. The plane was overbooked so I was unable to move. Therefore, worst flight ever. Plus, I paid for a full seat and was only able to occupy half of it."

Pros: "The in-flight service was good."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Poor hospitality by alaska airline staff, especially by MrPavel at gate H4, 01nov2016, prior boarding around 0730am"

Pros: "Everything was great. Easy boarding great comfortable seating and friendly efficient stewardship"

Cons: "Boarding was a little chaotic. Could have been more organized."

Pros: "staff was amazing, entertainment great, dasani sparkling lime water tasty, very clean and reasonably comfortable"
Cons: "the breakfast was made of 90% sugar - this was very disappointing."

Pros: "Everything was on time!"

Cons: "The flight was cancelled. I didn't receive a refund or free hotel accommodations. I've been on flights in Africa where free hotel accommodations were standard for a layover over 3 hours. A little embarrassing that an airline in America can't afford a hotel for people stranded in a city overnight."

Pros: "I got the vegetarian meal I asked for."
Cons: "Flight was delayed, because of the boarding process with immigration"

Pros: "This flight left about 90 minutes late again due to weather issues. The crew was excellent which made this long flight enjoyable."

Pros: "Staff extremely friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Old plane with no individual tv screens!!! Didn't know these planes still existed!"

Pros: "Extra blanket and pillow. Empty seat to sleep in. Fairly clean interior for the most part."

Pros: "Flight attendants were nice"
Cons: "The seats were incredibly uncomfortable. There was no leg room and 122 of the space below the seat in front of me was taken up by a metal box attached to the seat. I couldn't put both feet under the seat in front of me. The food was bad tasting and overly processed. We were fed a lean cuisine. The entertainment was from mounted tv's in the aisle. At this point, all planes crossing the ocean should have individual tvs for a customer to watch. They had this 15 years ago, how do they not have it now."

Pros: "Flights lately have been a huge disappointment but American Airlines was great! Crew was so pleasant and helpful,food was good and the "entertainment" was too! I'll definitely fly with them again!"

Pros: "All good! Nice staff. Easy travel."

Pros: "The crew was very efficient and friendly while handling everyone. Flight was smooth, food was good. I went to the wrong terminal and did not know that the advertised finair flight was actually American Airlines, the AA ticket counter attendant went all out to make sure I made it to the gate. All this with less than an hour before departure."
Cons: "I went to the wrong terminal, the email ticket had finair in large print and in smaller print indicated American. Luckily I was able to literally run and make my flight. Would be better to more clearly indicate actual airline."

Cons: "Small seats, no wifi, no chargers, terrible entertainment."

Pros: "Once we got on the plane, everything was pretty standard"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 5 hours."

Pros: "The water was clean"
Cons: "Everything else! We were first sold a British airlines flight, and then we got switched to American Airlines. I don't know if that is actually an okay thing for them to do. When we got onto to plane we were stuck on the runway for over 2 1/2 hours, where the outside temperature was 95 degrees and the AC in the plane didn't work. The delay was all due to a mechanical difficulty with the engine, this did not give us peace of mind when flying over the atlantic. while up in the air my newly wedded wife and I were hoping maybe we could watch a movie to help keep our minds off the creaking of the wings, the pool of sweat from the delay, and the grumpy flight attendants. Seeing as it was a 9 hour international flight, you would have expected some sort of entertainment. Maybe a personal TV.... nope. Maybe a community TV... nope. At least they have to have a radio....... nope. All we got were our two thumbs to twiddle. After a much needed nap. We woke up hoping maybe for a hot breakfast, but to put the cherry on top of some terrible ice cream, we got a mediocre cold breakfast. All in all I will not fly American Airlines again. I would happily and quickly pay double for any other airlines but them. It's such a poor reprisentation of our country."

Cons: "Old plane with no plug-ins and outdated media."

Pros: "Staff on the plane were nice."
Cons: "5 hour delay, fear of cancellation ruining a trip planned for years, not feeling we were told what was happening, series of delays extending decision time, unappetizing sandwiches during delay."

Pros: "Free alcohol and good passenger friends and friendly service."
Cons: "No outlets for phones"

Pros: "All the movies"
Cons: "Legroom"

Cons: "Could not read paper when passenger in front reclined seat. No space between rows."

Cons: "My flight was actually processed under American Airlines. Oddly, the confirmation email stated it was Finnair."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Cramped seats. Entertainment system outdated"

Cons: "Plane was too old, flight attendants were rude"

Pros: "The departure time. This left enough time to get to the airport and go through security without rushing!"
Cons: "Sitting in the middle Paying for luggage ( I wish Southwest flew out of ORD)"

Cons: "No complaints."

Cons: "Boarding seemed extremely unorganized. Crew skipped group 2 when calling groups to board, resulting in a mad rush."

Cons: "Due to two flight delays, I traveled an additional 24 hours, on top of my 20 hour original flight. Albuquerque Airline staff were rude, dismissive, incompetent, and each individual I spoke with gave me wildly differing information. The two delays (leading to approximately 48 hours of travel) would have been stressful enough, but the callous, ignorant and unprofessional attitudes of American Airlines staff (and staff in general at Chicago O'Hare Airport) really disappointed me. This was even more striking compared with the professional service I received from British Airways (from whom I purchased the tickets). I was ashamed that my country could lag so far behind in terms of basic customer service and problem solving."

Cons: "Requested for wheelchair assistance but none provided?!!"

Pros: "Timing and transit time was excellent"

Pros: "Everything."
Cons: "Nothing."

Cons: "Food was horribe and no dedicated tv per seat"

Cons: "We were delayed for 6 hours due to a maintenance issue. Horrible customer service"

Cons: "Always a problem with these guys"

Pros: "Couldn't of been more impressed especially after being hung out by Southwest!!!"

Cons: "We have flown to Europe recently on SAS and that airline was so much more comfortable than airberlin. Things we missed: personal TVs on the seats, good leg room (airberlin was quite cramped), and small attentions like a disposable towelette. I got no sleep on airberlin."

Pros: "Staff was very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Experienced 4 hour delay with mechanical and weather problems. But glad they put safety first"

Pros: "They put safety first"
Cons: "Frustrating 4 hour delay"

Cons: "I am very disappointed in my flight. I am 6'7 and paid for an exit row seat. When I got to the airport they gave me a different seat with no leg room. They told me they changed planes and there was nothing they could do to help me. I tried again at the gate and again nothing. Will never fly again."

Pros: "Room on flight in coach was sufficient and im 6 ft 2"

Pros: "The entertainment was pretty good . There was a good variety of movies and music"
Cons: "the cabin was extremely small, absolutely no leg dpace unless you were in first class, specially if you are a taller person."

Pros: "Overall pleasant experience."
Cons: "I was not aware that the FinnAir flight was being handled by American. I missed it when reading my itinerary and had a brief panic when I showed up to the international terminal and my flight was not even listed on the board. Perhaps it could be written a little larger? Thanks."

Pros: "Good value"
Cons: "Poor food quality"

Cons: "That small space!! This is a long flight and you have no room to move around at all!!!!!"

Pros: "Appreciated that the cre didn't wake me to give me my landing card. They did make sure I got one though."

Cons: "I didn't get vegetarian food that I ordered over the phone and I did made sure that it said vegetarian Jain meal on the ticket that I printed. Very disappointed because no point ordering then. I paid $1234 for the trip. And I am traveling because of funeral."

Cons: "Seats too tight. No room"

Pros: "Food, entertainment and free checked bag. Can ask for more!"

Pros: "In flight service."
Cons: "The first check in kiosk associate was turning us away because we reached 30 minutes prior to scheduled departure. However, by then they knew that they were going to be at least 1 hour 30 minute late. Then when kayak emailed us about the delay, the check in people let us in. Ultimately the flight was three hours late."

Pros: "Food, blanket & pillow,"
Cons: "Most of the video screens did not work. Long flight with no entertainment!"

Pros: "Seat accommodations were great Gate assignments at airport should be confirmed before the plane arrived"
Cons: "Planning"

Cons: "Give complimentary water"

Cons: "I love the changes that have taken place. I last flew with them 5 years ago and vowed too never fly with them again. Times have changed and they are a great Airline!!!"

Pros: "the non-stop flight works very well. lay overs are never welcomed, but tolerated because they need to be"
Cons: "hard to think of anything"

Pros: "Plenty of legroom"
Cons: "Flight delayed due to plane problems."

Cons: "The padding on these seats."

Cons: "A plan to deal with a hostile mom with a screaming kid that was out of control."

Pros: "Crew was very good and friendly."
Cons: "I would have appreciated a “free snack & cola”."

Pros: "Crew was amazing"

Cons: "I see no reason why the airlines cannot provide a beverage and snack - I think they still make plenty of money off our tickets and how much could this really cost them?"

Pros: "Great crew"

Cons: "Small seats, flight was late"

Pros: "Enjoyed isle seat."
Cons: "Wider seats."

Pros: "They let us board early with two young kids"

Pros: "Stewardess moved me to a more comfortable seat without me asking."

Pros: "It was great"

Pros: "The plane was very clean and well lit. The crew was excellent. Very friendly and nice."
Cons: "The seats are pretty uncomfortable. They are so close together and there is no room to store anything. The tray tables are a joke, you can't even fit an iPad on them. The bag check process was trouble at both legs. They have lower weight limits than the major carriers and that really should be highlighted better when you book with Allegiant. Also, bag checkin for the flight I was on started at 7:45am. There were only 2 people at the checkin counter and one of them was busy doing something and ignoring the customers. So that was a little annoying."

Cons: "my Luggage did not make it to Reno."

Pros: "To be honest nothing"
Cons: "Missed flight any no one was willing to help us pure BS"

Pros: "Non-stop flight at a reasonable price"
Cons: "Food choices are very limited"

Pros: "Getting off the bus!"
Cons: "2.00 for water! Overpriced everything! Crew was not nice. Kindness goes a long way. Not for this crew impatient and just rude to other passengers. We pay good money to ride on the horror bus!"

Cons: "The beer"

Pros: "The entire crew we're so accommodating and Robin was hilarious, made the hassle of traveling enjoyable and entertaining."
Cons: "Nothing all was great!"

Pros: "The staff and crew are extremely polite and focused on good service."

Pros: "Great direct flight to many destinations smaller airports less wait time"
Cons: "seats are crowded"

Pros: "Great assistance with a wheelchair to board, and gate crew in CVG is super friendly and helpful."
Cons: "After landing, we spent a hour sitting in the plane, waiting for a gate. After the entire plane had deboarded, it took another 15 minutes for them to bring my husband's wheelchair up from the gate checked storage."

Pros: "Love the Military advantages. Thank you. Feels good to be honored & respected."

Pros: "No hassle. No delays."

Cons: "Allegiant needs to put more than just school bus seats in their aircraft."

Cons: "Flight cancelled on the way to the airport due to weather. Weather wasn't due to turn bad for 36 hours."

Pros: "Flight was cancelled due to Irma in Florida. Customer service agent was fantastic. I was able to rebook die the following week without any hassle."
Cons: "I didn't get to fly to Florida when I first chose."

Pros: "Very cheap ticket Non stop flight to HTS with excellent service. Eat before the flight. It is a short flight but if needed bring your snack... airports near big cities..."

Cons: "Moving from one gate to another. The three hour delay. It appeared that no one person really knew what they were doing. The disabled in wheel chairs we left on there own. One elderly woman literally fell out of her wheel chair to the floor. I was discusseded by the events of the airline."

Pros: "Great service and very clean plane. Staff did everything to accommodate everyone's needs."
Cons: "There was a lot more turnulance than expected which could have made for our shaky landing but the pilot did a great job regardless."

Pros: "The crew was plesant and helpful."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Boarding outside in the pouring rain!!!"

Pros: "The plane departed on time. The crew was very friendly."

Pros: "That fact that they did not suply even one free bottle or cup of water is awful. I was very thirsty but did not get a drink because they chaged $2.00 for one bottle of water, and the is just plain wrong."

Pros: "Crew was great and handled the delay well. Definitely worth the 6 bucks each way to get the seats with additional leg room."
Cons: "This the 2nd time I've flown from Punta Gorda to Indy in the last month and both times the departures were delayed because of mechanical issues. No vouchers offered + no free anything offered = Bad customer service model. This airline also charges for carry-ons."

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."

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: "Was an hour and half late"

Pros: "Finally got home!"
Cons: "Flight was Delayed taking off by 2 1/2 hours due to mechanical issues. This flight along with the four hour delay when I flew to Orlando is a disaster. Probably the last time Allegiant will be flown!"

Cons: "Small seats that don't recline."

Pros: "Friendliness"
Cons: "Ride was bumpy"

Pros: "On time Nice crew"
Cons: "Pure sugar snack"

Pros: "Boarding was quick and easy."
Cons: "Flight attendant never smiled once. She got short with the lady in front of me. Just looked like she doesn't like her job. You could tell she didn't want to be there. I never did hear the Captain speak. The crew just seemed unfriendly to me. Service at the airport was great!"

Pros: "Flight was on time."

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: "The flight was good..."
Cons: "No entertainment was available ... even do they announced ..."

Pros: "In flight entertainment. Was able to watch a movie for free."

Pros: "Flight on time and arrived early"

Pros: "That I finally got there a day later. I only had carry on bags, so they weren't lost."
Cons: "At OHare the gate agent sent me to the wrong gate and plane for my flight. I did not arrive Thursday at 8:30 pm as scheduled. Customer service put me on "red eye" to Dulles for the next flight to Charleston, without motel or meal vouchers. I couldnt sleep on the benches there due to asthma and diabetic issues. I arrived Friday 2:30 pm 17 hours late. Dulles overnight cleaning staff helped more than agents at OHare."

Pros: "Good crew"
Cons: "Shitty seats was very uncomfortable probably won't fly United just because of that... Delta has a lot more comfortable seats"

Pros: "Seats were nice and crew was friendly"
Cons: "It wasn't their fault but we did have to land at a different airport due to weather, but it showed that the crew took safety first"

Pros: "Excellent service and friendly staff"
Cons: "Absolutely not enough room to stretch your legs"

Cons: "Some inspector idiot decided that the exterior cover stickers weren't "up to code" literally half an hour before my flight, delaying us 2 hours. I got onto a different flight at the last second, then the same thing happened to that plane. Brilliant on their parts. I almost lost a job interview thanks to your people."

Pros: "same as above"
Cons: "same as above"

Pros: "Getting to Charlotte"
Cons: "Plane dirty. Windows dirty. Extremely bumpy. Seats clostraphobic. Sat too long leaving"

Pros: "The flight crew apologized and kept everyone informed."
Cons: "The plane was having mechanical problems. Once it was determined that the problem couldn't be fixed it took the airline quite some time to locate a new plane. They should have started working to identify a new plane sooner. Ended up arriving in Portland after 3 am."

Pros: "Overall fine"

Pros: "flight was excellent"
Cons: "Monitor kept running commercials and a show i couldn't hear very annoying"

Pros: "The seats were perfect, a lot of leg room. Comfortable side pillows on the seats"
Cons: "All the rest including the absence of food"

Cons: "Why should I have to pay to watch tv? I know you don't have to pay on Southwest, Virgin America or Jet Blue. Not sure that a very (and I mean VERY SMALL) snack can be considered food"

Pros: "On time, gates were close together"

Pros: "Comfy environment, not completely booked plane"
Cons: "The price for one little bottle of Rum, highway robbery I say."

Cons: "No complaints."

Pros: "Good"

Cons: "Delayed because there was no crew to fly the plane switched gates 6 different time other than that everything was good"

Pros: "I was incredibly disappointed that my luggage got sent on an earlier flight to Memphis from Chicago. When I arrived in Memphis after 24 hours of flying, I found my luggage locked up and no representative to be found. Exhausted, frustrated, and seeing my luggage through the glass door and not being able to retreave it, I was incredibly frustrated with United. If you are going to send luggage on a different flight, be there and available to let travelers claim their luggage. My entire flight had gotten their bags from baggage claim before I even found someone available to open the door. I had to get an American Airlines representative to call them to the area twice before they arrived. If you are going to do this, offer the traveler to be on the earlier flight too. I was very disappointed, especially after my flight was delayed by 45 minutes on top of it."
Cons: "The poor customer service."

Cons: "Never made it so I can't rate it"

Pros: "Everything went smoothly"

Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Flight was delayed. Food was terrible"

Cons: "Flights always delayed delta sucks in Denver"

Pros: "Kind staff and crew."
Cons: "As usual, there were extensive delays. This time it was due to a plane change initially because there was a maintenance issue. Then, we had to walk across the airport to board our other plane at a gate on the other side. Then we had to wait for the crew to arrive before we could board. It wasn't until we finally were able to board that they discovered a maintenance issue on the second plane, so we sat on the tarmac in stifling heat due to the engine not being on for an hour and a half while they worked on the plane. We didn't take off until about 11:40 central time and arrive home until 1:30 AM eastern time instead of the scheduled 11:38 PM arrival time."

Pros: "Staff was great"
Cons: "Second delay in a row"

Pros: "Pilot/Crew Communication was frequent and accurate"

Pros: "Everything!"

Cons: "Many hours of delays from and to.."

Cons: "Had an extended overlay because of an overlap booking with our pilot. He was on another plane that wasn't due to come in until two hours later."

Pros: "Smoothly and on time"

Pros: "Willingness to check carry ons for sold out flights"
Cons: "Choosing of seats process. My traveling partner and I did not get to sit together on way home. Everyone was nice and got a free upgrade but would have been nice to sit together"

Pros: "My mother is disabled and was assigned wheelchair assistance and does not speak English very very hopeful does not have a cell phone because she is disable and does not know how to use a cell phone I was calling the one 800 number for united airlines they gave me a phone number for the terminal where she was delayed and I was just trying to check to see if my mother was aware of what was going on with the delay I just need to know if my mother was OK to give her comfort but unfortunately the number they gave me was not working I was calling over 30 rings with nobody answering for over three hours O'Hare airport was very hopeless for united airlines it's a shame that that is their head quarters i'm pretty sure I will never ever use United Airline again in my life after the terrifying experience I had waiting over four hours from my mother besides the four hour flight I was very terrified until my mother was in my arms I never ever want to experience that again or I hopefully nobody ever that uses your United airline will ever experience that"
Cons: "My mother is disabled and was assigned wheelchair assistance and does not speak English very very hopeful does not have a cell phone because she is disable and does not know how to use a cell phone I was calling the one 800 number for united airlines they gave me a phone number for the terminal where she was delayed and I was just trying to check to see if my mother was aware of what was going on with the delay I just need to know if my mother was OK to give her comfort but unfortunately the number they gave me was not working I was calling over 30 rings with nobody answering for over three hours O'Hare airport was very hopeless for united airlines it's a shame that that is their head quarters i'm pretty sure I will never ever use United Airline again in my life after the terrifying experience I had waiting over four hours from my mother besides the four hour flight I was very terrified until my mother was in my arms I never ever want to experience that again or I hopefully nobody ever that uses your United airline will ever experience that"

Pros: "Good customer service"

Cons: "When about to get on plane, carry on taken to checked bags; 5 people already on plane were required to come back off and check bags. I begged not to have to check because I was flying to Nicaragua and was worried my only bag would get lost. I was right -- it did not arrive in Nicaragua until the next day. We sat on runway for 45 minutes before departure so United could fix BOTH sets of the plane's wings lights. Why did they not discover that at any time BEFORE we all boarded or while we were boarding -- NOT first when deciding to pull away from gate. Delay caused many to miss connections."

Pros: "friendly attitude"
Cons: "$85 for two checked bags, many little issues along the way but got there safely"

Pros: "Steamboat Springs, CO There were many CUBS fans on this flight! Good to leave rainy Chicago & arrive in dry Denver! Even though the plane was late, I was still able to catch my Alpine Taxi to Steamboat!"
Cons: "There should be a way to know when the bathroom is available!"

Cons: "The fact that Reclining seats are a upgrade is unexceptable . The price online to check in your bags change during a check in. I was charged more than what your website state. The check-in reservation is was rude and unwilling to correct a computer glitch . She stated that your software had no ability to override a mistake."

Pros: "Not much. Very amateur service"
Cons: "To pay $40 for a carry on bag is being a thief. The seat in the plane do not recline... comfort is a thing of the past!"

Pros: "Little."
Cons: "Worst flight of my entire life."

Pros: "absolutely nothing."
Cons: "cheap seats, dirty plane, garbage in the front pockets. Nickle and dime you to death on everything!"

Pros: "The seats were comfortable enough. The departure was 40 min late, but the plane eventually landed according to the original schedule, which was nice. The price was very good, even with adding 40$ for too big carry-on."
Cons: "The attendants were talking way too much, making different announcements and explanations almost non-stop. They also organized some kind of reshuffling of people inside the plane due to the need to ... rebalance the aircraft. Never saw it at any other airline."

Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "They nickel and dime you for every little thing! You want to bring any luggage? Too bad it costs $35 or $60 per bag. You want to pick your seat? Too bad it's $11+. You want any food or drink on the plane? Too bad it's expensive."

Cons: "Email notification of a 3 hour flight delay 2 hours before flight but I was already on my way to the airport. Then the flight gets cancelled but no email notification was sent and the screen wasn't updated at the gate (the whole time I was there). If I hadn't come back to the gate during the long delay and asked a fellow passenger why they were in line, I wouldn't have known it was cancelled for a long time. The employees at the gate were helpful in refunding our tickets, etc. but overall, not happy with my experience with Frontier Airlines."

Cons: "Behind, plane troubles, and very uncomfortable seats. Not worth the money"

Cons: "there were too many delays and the situation was handled poorly. I do not plan to fly Frontier again in the future."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Cons: "Worst seats in any plane I have EVER been on (and I travel ALL the time). Those steel seats with 0 cushion have resulted in me having the worst back pain and being on bed rest for the past 3 days on severe pain medication with no signs of improvement. I will never fly Frontier again."

Pros: "The tate"
Cons: "Paying for bags"

Pros: "There wasn't any in flight entertainment and I didn't order food, so that's why my rating is neutral. Our flight back was 30 min early, so that was great."

Pros: "The price was good."
Cons: "But not that good."

Pros: "Crew were arguing with passengers over seating arrangements and when it came time to throw out garbage at the end they completely ignored half of the rows. Even after the lady next to me yelling to get their attention."
Cons: "See above."

Pros: "Efficient, quick flight!"
Cons: "No free snacks!!"

Pros: "We got there safe and sound."
Cons: "The gates were changed almost at the last minute and we didn't hear any announcements. A few passengers we're almost late for boarding. I found out because some lady came by and asked if this was the flight to some where else. That's how I found out the gates were changed. I told the rep to make sure that they make the announcement so everyone knows of the changes. I could of got on the wrong plane and missed my flight."

Pros: "Aircraft"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Longest security line I have ever seen and I travel in a lot of countries all over the world that have outrageous security lines. Had an hour and a half to get through security and still missed the flight. Nothing could be done because the next flight was in 3 days."

Cons: "Lots of screaming children, but I had to fly to Orlando."

Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable, over priced snacks, no foods."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "All the hidden costs"

Pros: "Initial cost of flight. Later disappointed that it was as expensive to check three bags."
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable, mere plastic shells compared to other airlines and seats in our area did not recline. Very little legroom as rows seemed to be compressed. Being told we had to pay for checked or carry on luggage on-line so we checked three bags since we had to check one anyway. Then noting other passengers getting on the flight with bags they were putting in upper compartment without seeing how it had been verified that they had paid to bring on luggage to put in the overhead. I feel like a schmuck for paying for bags when it did not appear anyone was checking to see who paid and who didn't. Not even soft drinks were free."

Pros: "Frontier staff in SFO (San Francisco) friendlier to passengers than ORD (Chicago). Kept luggage at SFO for pickup when I arrived"
Cons: "Missed flight by 10 mins. Was able to check-in 1-hr before a domestic flight and get my boarding pass printed. However, the attendants were not interested in expediting me, and 4 other passengers going on the same flight, through security. Ultimately, 5 passengers with boarding passed missed their flight even though we had arrived to the airport and checked-in at an appropriate time! After the plane left, an attendant assisted a passenger to rebook their flight, but then left to go on break and left 3 of us stranded. Very few Frontier attendants available to help us. Had to pay $225 for another same day flight to SFO using American Airlines. Learning points: - hard deadline, need to be at gate 10 mins before departure time - lofty and esoteric reimbursement process - Frontier does not participate in TSA Pre-Check, so arrive 2 hours ahead of departure time for domestic flights - Frontier does not participate in other airline organizations, so unless you rebook with Frontier you are paying full price for the new ticket"

Cons: "The staff was informative and had great energy, unfortunately though, I had a very hard time getting comfortable. I'm 5'5" and I had absolutely no leg room, I felt claustrophobic and uncomfortable the entire flight."

Pros: "free water"
Cons: "the flight was late coming and going by over an hour."

Pros: "Everyone was friendly, will fly again soon to San Fran."

Pros: "everything going well from start to finish."
Cons: "I was a little concerned when the person in the window seat next to me left soon after take-off. I figured he was headed to the washroom, but never came back. These days, you never know if it might have been something that should have been mentioned."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything. Frontier is awful and I will never fly with them again. They cancelled the flight for "weather" more than 12 hours in advance. By the time the flight was supposed to leave, flights were taking off from O'Hare without any problem. Next, they could not have been less cooperative in helping my find an alternative route to San Fran. After more than 2 hours of arguing with Frontier personnel, they magically found a way for me to get there via Denver. Finally, once I boarded the flight to Denver, the crew could not have been any less competent. I saw at least two instances where they had given away the seat of someone who had checked into the flight, then had to scramble to find them a new seat. Frontier is the worst."

Pros: "I will never fly Frontier again. Poor customer service. Poor baggage handling. Poor timeliness of flight and baggage delivery. Poor communication of flight delays and baggage mix-ups. Understaffed. Undertrained. Poor seats, particularly considering I paid for the best. Inadequate compensation for 8+ hour delay and missing baggage for 3 days. After all the nickel and diming for seats, baggage (checked AND carry on) it would have cost me less to fly my preferred carrier and avoided every hassle, not to mention the inadequate compensation (again). Horrible, horrible experience."

Horrible, horrible experience."

Pros: "Boarding was fast"
Cons: "Very very terrible seats. Always late"

Pros: "We had a flight to Philadelphia we boarded on time and landed early! It was great!"

Cons: "1) Although flights are fairly low fare, they get you with baggage. Had to pay to check OR to carry-on. 2) Flew out of Chicago O'Hare - a major hub - and Frontier, Spirit, Virgin America, & Alaskan all shared a SINGLE security check. Yes ladies and gentleman, one security scanner. I have never in my life (usually fly American, United, or Southwest) waited more than 30 minutes to get through security. This time was well over an hour, I almost missed my flight. 3) On-board staff was friendly (all but one woman), but there were no complimentary beverages or snacks. I did pay for some & they were not too pricey, but having to whip out my credit card yet again made my whole travel experience feel far from effortless."

Pros: "Crew did a great job keeping everyone happy with the weather delays."

Pros: "Really good experience"

Pros: "The price for the trip was great. I thought the boarding was efficient and the flight crew pleasant. Check in at the airport was very easy although the automatic machines were non functing."
Cons: "Long pre security screening lines. The seating is rather cramped."

Pros: "Flights were cheap."
Cons: "You end up paying an additional $30-35 to check a bag or carry on-board, you also end up paying $15-20 to reserve a seat. In addition, they won't accept your checked-in baggage if you're not at the airport 45 min before boarding to drop it off. They made me re-book my flight out of Chicago for the next day and charged me $99. I was only 5 min late to drop my bag off, and because of bad traffic. The airline has no empathy, they seem to be only concerned with charging you at every opportunity they get. I will never fly frontier again."

Cons: "Frontier airlines. Rigid and unable to admit that they made a mistake. Caution towards anyone who flies with their special low discount rates. Many opportunities were taken by company to recover discounted fare (and I am not referring to any baggage costs) Besides money, they ruined a special weekend through delays. Think twice! In fact, my comment is in reference to customer service in general. Everything is a fight now. I'm not a screamer, I'm rational. I laid out,clearly, where their policy was contradicted and that some empathy was in order and in the process was hung up on once and have not received a reply to my last email. If you gave no intention to achieve quality customer service, why pay for the department? Maybe they don't."

Cons: "It was delayed and arrived 2 hours late. I had booked the flight specifically for its departure and arrival time. It was my first time flying with Frontier, and I will not fly with them again."

Cons: "Lost my luggage and people at check in were rude"

Cons: "inflight everything requires payment."

Cons: "45 dollars for each carry on . Not pleased to pay 90 extra dollars. Never flying Frontier again"

Cons: "While booking I was unaware frontier airlines charged for carry on luggage and didn't participate in TSA pre check. In addition to paying $45 more for the ticket than advertised and having to use normal security, the plane was so cramped the guy behind me hit me in the head. Finally there was a persistent foul smell in the plane. It was a rough 4hrs 30 min. I would recommend spending more and flying southwest or United."

Cons: "The price of the trip did not include a seat, nor baggage, this was unclear and I felt misled. The seating is extremely uncomfortable. Checking in online was terrible, the website was hard to navigate, the prices were inconsistent (I was checking on my phone and computer at the same time and getting different rates for seats). I felt the communication was poor. I did not feel safe. I will not choose this Airline again."

Pros: "Inexpensive flight. Friendly but no nonsense crew."
Cons: "Why do they seat front rows first? You would think that would block people from getting in."

Pros: "Basic ticket price was good. Crew was friendly. Cabin was clean. Flight left on time and even landed early."
Cons: "Having to pay for all but 1 small bag. Having to pay to reserve seat. No Wi-Fi No in-flight entertainment of any kind. Not even a magazine."

Pros: "I tried to buy the $25 check in luggage with my ticket, but it was extremely difficult, so 1check in and 1 carry on was $85 extra. I will UPS luggage for return."
Cons: "Seats are packed tightly."

Pros: "The flight was fine. The seats are not well padded, like sitting on just the plastic. I did not purchase any food. There was no entertainment offered and since it was a 6 am flight, I slept. Frontier is a nice airline for a short trip, but I wouldn't want to desl with all the ectra charges for a longer vacation. The fact that I had to pay to pick a seat, that goes too far."
Cons: "All the extra charges."
