Pros: "Landing 40 min ahead of schedule"

Cons: "i didn't like the fact that we did the plane did not take off on time from LA making the arrival time very late to DC."

Cons: "The lavatory smell. How about have some air freshener like Emirates airline."

Pros: "The staff were pleasant, helful and truly desirous of making sure all had a comfortable flight."

Pros: "Love the amount of space availabile for my legs!!"

Pros: "First time flying Alaskan. Out of all the US-based airlines I flew with, Alaskan was the cleanest, friendliest, and quickest."

Pros: "Friendliness"

Cons: "Baggage fees."

Cons: "I was seated at the emergency exit, seat 17a. Flight attended tells everyone that were responsible to open the emergency door and we must know english. For some crazy reason she singles me out and says "you understand that sir". My neighbor in seat 17b said "she told you off hahaha". I was embarrassed."

Cons: "Customers should be made aware that animals are on the flight before boarding to safe guard against allergies."

Pros: "First off Bonnie at the boarding gate was phenomenal , She has an amazing disposition ( especially at 5:00 in the morning ) she greeted each and every customer by name and with a smile ! Our flight was delayed for 2 hours as we sat at the gate while problems were fixed . The Captain made sure he kept us informed as each problem occurred and was fixed . The rest of the flight crew remained patient and attentive , which of course kept all the customers onboard calm and patient as well . My daughter just moved to Seattle and if this is the norm for this airline I will continue to use them for my future visits ! Elizabeth"

Cons: "Can I have a refund? My flight has been delayed 3 1/2 hours and then they add another delayed flight to leave from my gate ahead of us. Wonderful."

Pros: "Efficient and comfortable"

Pros: "The plane was new but with no bells let alone whistles."
Cons: "No monitors/screens at all on plane."

Cons: "My initial flight was at 0800; I got to the gate before 0800 and was told I couldn't board the flight even though it was still at the gate and was still before the flight time. I had to pay to rebook my flight, spent over $200 in rides to and from airport, had additional parking fees and was several hours late to work. I have many family members who work in flight service so I understand that employees don't like to re-do paperwork; however, being there before the flight time and being denied cost a lot of work time and money. I have always had great experiences with Alaska so this one was quite a disappointment compared to their usual great service. :("

Cons: "Had to change my flight- $125 cancellation fee is almost as much as the flight itself. At least let people use their credit on Alaska like Southwest does! Makes me hesitant to ever book with them again."

Pros: "Very accommodating staff"

Pros: "The food, the service, the ability to charge my phone"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "New equipment"
Cons: "Sparse food."

Pros: "I am a tall woman and rarely ride in an airplane without my kneecaps brushing the seat in front of me in coach. Not sure what Alaska Airlines is doing differently, but I had knee-room to spare on my flight to Seattle!"
Cons: "Upon our arrival in Seattle, it seemed that the gate wasn't quite ready for us and we spent a restless few minutes "getting docked" for departure."

Pros: "I liked how quickly I was able to board."
Cons: "I disliked the temperature on the plane because it was too cold. I also don't understand how TSA determines how one gets pre-boarding status. Families were split up. For example, a husband was separated from his wife & child. Is this done on a random basis?"

Cons: "A child crying the whole trip behind my seat. No effort by mother to stop child from crying"

Pros: "I had heard about limited food options during covid flights but everything was tasty and generous. I always appreciate it when my initial flight books my check-in to my final stop and gives me all my boarding passes at once and Delta did just that. They were also really good at communicating updates like changes to the gate."
Cons: "People should just be prepared to be asked more questions than usual. It can definitely make you feel nervous but just remember that the new covid restrictions are stressful for flight staff just as much as they are stressful for you. Be cooperative and honest and you shouldn't have any problems."

Pros: "Kosher snacks! Thank you. Screens and outlets at every seat. Safe, controlled Covid protocols including de-boarding. Excellent!"

Pros: "Delta flight took extra precaution to keep all passengers safe before during and after the flight. They communicate effectively during the flight. I will be flying Delta again and again."
Cons: "The trip was great"

Pros: "The crew was good, and the airline tried to make our wait in the airport as comfortable as possible."
Cons: "The four-hour delay was really hard. Since it was in DC, I don't know why it took so long to get another plane."

Cons: "We arrived around 39 minutes early and the whole process was very smooth"

Pros: "Crew was attentive and accommodating."
Cons: "Gates switched 3 times and all bags had to be checked because of a small aging plane."

Pros: "Calm and safe, just like I like it."

Pros: "Comfortable plane due to few passengers"
Cons: "7 hour delay after flight postponed."

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: "All good."
Cons: "Price"

Cons: "The flight was delayed over two hours"

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

Pros: "Information communicated about delays."
Cons: "- more communication (any!) about bag status when landed - flight delay due to too many/too heavy baggage. Long delay was said to be due to making sure our baggage would accompany destination. Upon arrival, bag was left in NYC but this wasn't communicated. No info on bag status at airport or via ema"

Cons: "It was late"

Cons: "First class seats were too close together. It was very difficult to get out of you seat into the aisle. Food was not what it should have been for 1st class There was no wall between 1st class and coach giving little privacy when I worked my laptop. it was in direct view of the middle seat in coach"

Pros: "Good snack selection. Crew was personable."

Cons: "Seat assignment for me and my traveling companion was done at gate. We had to sit in 2 different rows."

Pros: "Crew was nice and welcoming"
Cons: "Well, if our plane had been leaving on time it would've been superb."

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

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

Pros: "The crew was dealing with NOVA/DC residents"

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

Pros: "Coming from Europe Alitalia and Delta did an EXCELLENT job at assisting the passengers get rid of their luggage just as soon as we were done going through customs... I don't usually fly on this route, but I thought it was perfect. Transfer between Delta terminal was a breeze too..."
Cons: "I usually don't fly from JFK. The food court was expensive (18 dollars base price from a burger seems a high even for an airport. I don't fly from NY normally - so maybe I need to tune my expectation for the locale, and it may have NOTHING to do with the airline company."

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

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 ."

Cons: "The aircraft is too old, MD-88. I don't know how Delta is flying that type of aircraft. Is very risky"

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

Cons: "Flight cancelled due to weather that was never bad but on the potential of bad weather. Had to scramble so my 18 year old son was not stranded overnight in a strange place and Delta does not help. Only rebooked a flight itinerary for the next day for a 4 hour flight with connections on a 1 hour direct flight. Spent an hour on line to figure out what to do. #neverdelta"

Cons: "Plane delayed 4 times for a total of 4 hours"

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

Pros: "Comfortable flight, ample leg room, and the chairs were pretty plush. Comfort+ is pretty nice"
Cons: "On my first flight they forgot to turn the wifi on. I have unlim data but obviously can't use while in air; no big though."

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

Pros: "flight attendants were great."
Cons: "not enough leg room and space. The business class should be at the minimum for economy."

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 crew was polite and friendly"
Cons: "My second plane had sooo much moisture coming from the cooling system it looked like the passengers were getting gased and I kept getting wet from water condensation falling on me in a window seat as I tried to sleep from having such an early flight to begin with only to be told it's delayed 3 hrs without explanation."

Pros: "It was quick."
Cons: "Flying these days is no better than taking a local bus."

Pros: "The entertainment system was very nice. The seats were comfortable!! The crew friendly!!!"
Cons: "Food was lacking!!!"

Pros: "We are safe"
Cons: "Late. I am still on the plane. Did not seem to matter we were late."

Pros: "Flight attendants were friendly and in-flight entertainment was good, including easy access to power ports."
Cons: "Delayed about an hour due to weather. However, another 2 hours spent screwing around sitting on the plane after boarding because no one anticipated DCA restrictions. Then on arrival sat another 30 minutes waiting for a gate. Adding insult to injury, took about 40 minutes to get luggage. Weather is understandable, but the rest was just mismanagement."

Pros: "Great service"

Pros: "The boarding process was easy and on flight service was on point."

Cons: "The plane was delayed about 3 hours because of mechanical difficulties. After several hours we were moved to another plane...should have been done way earlier."

Cons: "Flight was fine but took 20 minutes to find a gate agent at DCA to let us off the plane."

Pros: "Almost empty in economy"
Cons: "I liked everything"

Pros: "The airplale MD 80 are old"

Pros: "Friendly crew, comfortable space, good snacks."

Pros: "Once I made it, they worked to get me on the plane from Chicago quickly."
Cons: "I barely made it for my flight in Chicago and that was with running. They were already boarding the other plane when my plane from Hattiesburg landed. Earlier in the day I had to get them to change my flight from Chicago in Hattiesburg because it wasn't changed for me when the delay had my original flight leaving before I was to land in Chicago. I don't fault them for someone getting sick at the last minute or my inconvenience, but it was still inconvenient."

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

Pros: "Excellent for a short flight. Good entertainment and a smooth ride."

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

Cons: "Should be allowed one checked bag per person at no charge."

Pros: "Seats were really neither notably comfortable nor notably uncomfortable. I think they were slightly on the comfortable side."
Cons: "Would be nice to have more modern aircraft amenities, like power outlets for device charging, and display screens with at least some complimentary entertainment, or at least flight path tracking. Boarding counter lady was obnoxiously strict about not letting our carry-on bags to be carry-on. She made us test them in the size device and said they were too big, even though they could easy be pushed into the space, and regardless of the fact that we just flew on an American Airlines flight with them as carry-on and were only on a layover with them! Regarding the previous AA agent who let them be carry-on, she said "shame on them." Complete opposite of the positive experience we had with her counterpart in Phoenix. ಠ_ಠ"

Pros: "Timing and transit time was excellent"

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

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

Cons: "Always a problem with these guys"

Cons: "Little planes need an interior restoration to make them look better."

Pros: "My favorite part of the flight was our on time departure! :-)"
Cons: "I don't care for the configuration of the Airbus 320...it's rather difficult to adjust the overhead light and air, compared to the placement on a Boeing 737."

Pros: "love when they turn off the lights"
Cons: "annoying late notifications of gate changes"

Pros: "The food."

Pros: "Efficient"
Cons: "Free wifi"

Cons: "Was lied to concerning that 23kg of checked in luggage was included, turned out it was not."

Pros: "They smiled, gave a friendly farewell, made sure everyone was hydrated."
Cons: "Don't get an attitude with calm passengers asking for assistance for their seatmates. Sometimes they wouldn't ask me what I wanted to eat or drink, they just assumed I already heard them ask other passengers and just waited for me to answer. It just seems lazy to me."

Cons: "Cabin felt quite warm"

Pros: "Getting a meal and drink"

Pros: "The flight was late and barely made the connecting flight. In the end, my luggage arrived damaged."

Pros: "Everything from ticketing to deplaning was smooth and professional."
Cons: "No problems at all."

Pros: "I like flying Lufthansa for entire trip then changing to united airlines"
Cons: "Particular everything the airline"

Cons: "I missed having the navigation map when traveling such a long distance."

Pros: "On time"

Pros: "Having about an hour and 20 minutes left me with enough time to explore the airport from one gate to the other without feeling terribly rushed."
Cons: "The ONLY thing negative that I can say is that the Chicago airport had no charging stations at my gate."

Pros: "Once the flights took off, everything was just great."
Cons: "The boarding process was awful. There are zones, but they are all boarded simultaneously. What's the point of paying to board early if you don't get the chance. Then, I had to check my bag because the boarding order was a mess. One flight attendant tried to force me to put my bag overhead when I told her I could fit it under the seat. She stressed me out unnecessarily."

Pros: "Friendly"
Cons: "Delayed more..."

Cons: "No bags to go to overhead bin"

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "The food not fit for human consumption"

Pros: "Quick boarding. Ontime departure."
Cons: "Very small servings of food."

Pros: "AlwYs on time"
Cons: "Cramped"

Cons: "We were asked to be at the airport 8hrs ahead of time, so we arrived 3am. United desk workers arrived at 4am."

Pros: "Flight delayed- missed connection. No easy way to get Home to Vermont. Flew to Boston and rented car!"

Pros: "The crew was very polite at every moment"
Cons: "I really liked everything"

Cons: "Had to pay for movies and snacks."

Pros: "Again- nothing"
Cons: "This flight was canceled for me! Why am I being asked how I would rate it?!"

Pros: "Had fun watching free movies on my device, although the connection didn't work for the first leg. The plane was new/upgraded, a ton of legroom on my second leg Airbus."

Pros: "For the basic economy seat there was plenty of room and the staff was excellent. Honestly the best domestic flight I've taken in a long time."

Pros: "The gate at the Chicago airport was well designed. There was a line for each boarding group, and you could line up early. This is particularly effective for some Asian flights, which can sometimes be chaotic with many different nationalities all lining up."

Pros: "Go"

Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Total disaster due to some snow, excessive delays"

Pros: "temperature was right not blanket needed"
Cons: "they ignore me never offer me a drink and I was thirsty"

Pros: "We'll coordinated."

Cons: "See above comments."

Pros: "Everything went pretty well minus the delayed flight from the start"
Cons: "Some older woman yelling at a teenager for "pushing her in the back of her seat" while in flight"

Cons: "This flight was delayed around 3 hours."

Cons: "Had to check a bag I've carried on several other times."

Cons: "My 3rd old was very hungry and I reached out to cabin staff for any kind of food for purchase, they turned me down saying I need to wait for another hour till the dinner time. Did not provide any help there."

Cons: "Lack of leg room, no TVs, no free wifi"

Cons: "Flight was delayed because one of the flight attendance was late showing up."

Pros: "Flight was on-time."
Cons: "Flight to Washington Dulles was boarding at the same time through the same door as flight to Washington National. Why would you schedule it this way? Plane cabin lighting was mostly burned out so very difficult to see while getting on the plane. Window appeared to be caulked on, exit door handle cover in row behind was falling off causing concern for passenger in exit row. Plane was generally shabby and run down. Flight attendant was reading all announcements which did not inspire confidence in her training. Small regional jet, so seats and leg room were terrible. Made us wait outside in the cold for our hand luggage that was too large for tiny overhead bins while we watched baggage handlers drop several carry-ons from the conveyor belt onto the ground. In addition they lost one of our two bags."

Cons: "The flight was over one hour late departing ORD. We had approximately 15 minutes to make our connection at IAD. While I understand that the delay happened because the copilot was late because of a fender bender, I believe the delay could have been much shorter. Since they had telephone contact with the crew member we could have been boarded before he was on the plane and departed sooner. Also no reasonable explanation was given for the delay other than a crew member was not there."

Cons: "Flight took off early while I was still aboard the inbound connector. I was supposed to be mollified with a boarding pass for 9 hours later and a hotel room. Gee thanks."

Pros: "Kudos to staff during difficult weather"
Cons: "Late notice for cancellation"

Pros: "Was never in Chicago."
Cons: "Was never in Chicago but my stuff was."

Cons: "I was informed today that one of my checked bags was picked up by another customer who eventually realized it was not her bag. She brought it back to the airport and refused to turn over the bag until the airport compensated her. (How this happened I have no idea because I stood right by the entrance of the baggage claim and never saw the bag come out). The customer refused to return the bag until the police became involved at which point she agreed to write a note confirmed she did not steal anything. The bag then needs to be sent to me in 2 days and I'll have to verify myself that indeed nothing was taken from the bag. I'm very concerned how this individual came to be in possession of my bag considering, again, I stood right at the entrance of the baggage claim conveyor belt from the time it started to when it ended. As a result, this experience really made me feel frustrated and violated."

Cons: "Bumpy air"

Cons: "Small aircraft and noisily to much"

Cons: "The wait for my carry on baggage..."

Cons: "We waiting 2hours... delay Something to fixing on plane! I miss good business in Tampa because of that"

Pros: "I liked the fact that I can fly red eye."
Cons: "I typically fly Southwest because of the free leg room, free 2 bags checked, and 2 free carry-ons. Frontier "fee's" flyers to death. I have to pay extea for leg room????!!! REALLY! I could see if i was 6'6" but I'm not. If Southwest ever offers red eye flights I'll never patronize Frontier or another airline again."

Cons: "not clean"

Pros: "Bag charged"

Cons: "Short-staffed, so short tempered workers.kiosks did not work. Nickled and dimed on everything. Like flying in prison. No light and a cold hard bench seat. Awful."

Pros: "Very efficient."
Cons: "No free beverage."

Pros: "This was the first time I have flown Frontier. Even with a checked bag fee ($30 each way), my total fare was still less than half of what it would have been for competitors the same week. The planes were clean, flights were on time, and the crew were extremely friendly and helpful!"
Cons: "There wasn't anything not to like! The experience was seriously better than I imagined it would be."

Pros: "I was upgraded for free!"
Cons: "The payment necessary for baggage."

Pros: "The whole trip is pretty bad. It is delayed for 5 hours. And no free water on the airplane. You basically has to pay for everything: food, checking luggage, and carryon bags. No entertainment at all. The flight tickets are not cheaper anyway."

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."

Cons: "Everything!!"

Pros: "Aircraft"
Cons: "Nothing"
