Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "The one member on the crew team was rude and harsh. Very poor customer service skills."
Pros: "Great crew...seat spacing gives great comfort. Love they have a comfort class option. So much better experience than American. Wish Delta had more direct flights out of Charlotte."
Cons: "It was perfect!!"
Pros: "The sanitizing of the aircraft was beyond expectations. The personal wipes were a plus so we could clean the areas around our seats to our satisfaction. The individual snack bags are a great idea to minimize handling. The boarding rear to front should have been in place years ago and the deplaning was about normal front to rear with distancing."

Pros: "Being on time"
Cons: "Nothing you guys did great thankyou so much."

Pros: "Smooth flight"

Cons: "Late and bumpy"
Pros: "The crew was fantastic."
Cons: "Seats, leg space, noise. The seats in coach were too close together and the entertainment system was slow and seemed outdated."
Pros: "Being that I needed to book last minute due to my other carrier only having one flight headed back to my destination, of which they weren't even sure if it would be taking off...Delta came through in a pinch. It was my first time flying with them but the ticket agent was helpful and attentive"
Pros: "Crew was very professional. Seat uncomfortable. No entertainment. did get water or coffee."
Cons: "more leg room is needed"
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "I actually can not complain"

Pros: "Seats are comfortable and didn’t mind staying with the back upright. Flight attendants veery friendly and boarding was fast and easy."

Cons: "Didn’t get our beverage and snack till we were almost ready to land at Charlotte"
Cons: "Aiirlines always want to try and chargel extra money for everything. If you purchase tickets back in February and still can't sit with your significant other that's a problem to me."
Pros: "On time."
Pros: "Roomier than a lot of airplanes."
Cons: "Bumpy ride. Nobody's fault."
Pros: "Flight crew is helpful. We travelled with my 82 year old mother who needed some assistance, especially for our short connection times, and they made sure she and our whole group made it to the connections on time."
Pros: "I liked booking/purchasing my ticket on Kayak on June 3rd."
Cons: "I did not like arriving for my 4:50 PM EST flight at 4:10 PM EST and being told there is no way I can make my flight. The crew at CVG’s Delta desk is incredibly uninspiring and not helpful at all. A lot can be done in 40 minutes and they made little to no effort helping me make my flight or to get me on another flight on 6/13 that would get me home to Colorado Springs the same day."
Pros: "Like the smaller contingent of passengers. Boerding a lot quicker and simpler. Captain gave us some interesting details about plane and its capabilities."
Cons: "Exit row seats were were very uncomfortable, very little padding, although there was plenty of legroom. No snacks or entertainment. WiFi did not work."
Pros: "It was great because I was able to get an aisle seat."
Cons: "Like it all"
Pros: "CVG isn't a huge airport, but it has a good amount of things to keep you entertained/well fed."

Pros: "Boarding was fine. And service was good."
Cons: "TV controls didn’t work. So I couldn’t watch anything for the 4+ hour flight."
Cons: "The attendants at the delta counter in the airport were very rude and told us we were nit elite member when in Lima and Mexico was at the contrary"
Cons: "My return portion of my flight was canceled and had to purchase a new ticket. I would like a full refund of my expenses."
Pros: "Left on time!"
Cons: "Too cramped"
Pros: "Friendly crew with modern plane"
Cons: "Why am I paying for first class for just snacks I can buy in an airport shop?"
Pros: "But, this wasn't bad at all, even though we were on the very last seat of the plane. We were next to one of the flight attendants during take off and landing and she was very kind and we were speaking with her. The flight was smooth"
Pros: "I got a seat in the exit row with lots of leg room. The entertainment that I didn't use offered a great selection with very recent movies, etc."
Cons: "I didn't like that I had to take a bus to my terminal. I didn't like the fact that my gate was changed more than five times. I didn't like that my flight time was changed more than 15 times with no reason why until boarding time. I didn't like the fact that I did not get a seat assignment until boarding the plane. I didn't like the fact that they couldn't manage to scramble another plane and crew, but instead forced us to wait over four hours for one that was stuck somewhere else in the country."
Pros: "Speed and comfortable kind bars were a nice touch"
Cons: "Luggage went elsewhere"
Cons: "I have never been to Billings, so I find it rather difficult to review this flight that I have never been on."
Pros: "The boarding process was very well done. Gate agent and flight attendants on top of their game. This is how it is supposed to be done. Thank you."
Cons: "Although weather played a part in the poor experience, it wasn't the only factor. Delta was unprepared."
Pros: "Service was great"
Cons: "Food wasn't great cookie!"
Pros: "Didn't nickel and dime us about snacks or entertainment. Warned us about turbulence, but it wasn't too bad, thanks to the pilot for doing his best to keep us on an even keel. Did not feel,squished in the "comfort" or Premium Economy seats. In the lowered expectations world of modern air travel, this was relatively OK, which means I recommend it and would fly with them again."
Cons: "I paid for the upgrade to Delta Comfort Plus for an aisle seat & for some reason they reassigned our seats and I got Putin a middle seat. It was not what I paid for and it was very uncomfortable. If people pay to upgrade to specific seats we should. It be reassigned to whatever seat they want to put us in."
Cons: "I told you my daughter's birthdate, you know her age, don't require me to call you and wait on hold for 30+ minutes for her to not be seated by herself."
Pros: "Flying to Portland was trouble free."
Cons: "No complaints here"
"Unlike other airlines, did not allow for basic economy flexibility for new COVID spike. Disappointing."
"Self entitled pax loudly continuing his telephone conversation after pushback was tolerated and only after the safety demonstration did crew address it."
"We were delayed in Charlotte for almost 2 hours because American Airlines didn't have flight attendants for our flight."
"Two meals were served in the First class during 9hr long flight! Great for domestic!!! Mai Tai drink was excellent!"
"Worst airline experience of my life, depending on how the rest of my “customer service” experience goes I may never fly american airlines again."
"The delay could have been shorter. Rough traveling late at night with an infant and then a delay."
"Employees very helpful and courteous. Nice trip."
"The seats were small, even for airplane standards. No on board wifi to use the app entertainment."
"WiFi did not work at all!"
"Too busy trying to sell AA credit cards"
Pros: "leaving on time"
Cons: "provide a snack"
Pros: "Yes made sure mask was in place"
Pros: "The crew was very nice. The ride was smooth. The landing was smooth as well."
Cons: "The seats are too close together that I could not sit comfortably the second I sat down. Also we were told to social distance but we were all elbow to elbow so it didn’t really make any sense."
Pros: "Free movies"
Cons: "Start boarding earlier"
Pros: "Boarding was quick and the stewardess took good active care of us"
Cons: "Really by now, we know there is little reason to mask. The constant reminders and the threatening tone is unnecessary and quite annoying."
Cons: "Entertainment and food/drinks"
Pros: "The crew was awesome"
Cons: "Every time I fly out of Scranton I’m delayed horribly this time it was so bad I’m stuck in a hotel for the night."
Pros: "The crew was polite, including TSA, and I had no problems with anyone on board. There was also little turbulence, which was nice as a first time flyer."
Cons: "The seats were incredibly uncomfortable, even with a pillow. I was in economy, but I was expecting at least a little cushion."
Pros: "I used frequent flyer miles for the tickets."
Cons: "The crew was late getting to the gate. All of them talked to me like I was a child they were disappointed in. No one smiled. I thought all of the crew was mad at us for using their airline."
Cons: "The airlines need to board and deboard by group number."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Why no service in first class?"
Pros: "The crew was rude"
Pros: "Liked we actually made it."
Cons: "Another delayed American Airlines flight where the temperature in the cabin was as the overall apathy of the employees."
Pros: "Not a lot. Entertainment options on board were decent. Food was alright."
Cons: "Everything! Crew were terse, rude and inattentive. Due to an issue with a bag on board without the associated passenger we had to taxi back to the stand for it to be removed before we could take off. This cost us an hours delay. There was limited apologies for this, no refreshments provided during the wait and poor communication of this. During the flight the staff were inattentive and sparing with refreshments. Service generally did not live up to expected level associated with an inter-continents flight. The flight was turbulent but crew and captain seemed over cautious with it and crew had to remain seated unnecessarily at times and at the detriment of passenger service. One stewardess wouldn’t even let me finish a drink before removing it from my hand claiming we were about to land and she had to sit down because of turbulence. We were still 40 mins from landing at this point! All in all a pretty bad flight, and it’s safe to say I won’t be flying American Airlines again."
Cons: "We landed early and had to wait 45 min on the runway."
Pros: "Plane was new and clean..good leg room."
Cons: "Being told to shut window blinds and spent most of the journey in darkness. No hot drinks. Long gaps between cold drinks. Staff not very friendly."
Cons: "The gentleman sitting next to me never turned his phone in to airplane mode. His phone rang several times while the flight attendant was going through the safety procedures right in front of us. This was after the announcement came that all electronic devices where to go into airplane mode. The flight attendant did not do anything and seemed to ignore the phone that kept ringing. The gentleman was even talking on the phone while the flight attendant was going through the safety procedures. Later while landing an announcement came over that we were to return to our seats, close all tray tables, and seats ts in the upright position. At this point the gentleman sitting next to me leaned his seat backwards. The flight attendant passed by the gentleman at least three times and never said anything about his seat back. Evidently this flight attendant did not care to do his job properly."
Pros: "late boarding - Chaotic at the boarding gate"
Cons: "BAD Public Relations: AA announced the flight was overbooked, then called up 3 young ladies. Their reaction was seen by everyone. They had just gone through the entire procedure to get to the gate and were forced to be stranded. FIRST CLASS: food service: could there be a rating less than POOR? we were given 10,000 miles (yes that bad) but just like Whose line - the points don't matter when the airlines is that bad! Crew response: We're not any worse than the other airlines - my response: WRONG! NO WIFI NO entertainment NO CHARGING AREA magazines were missing pages in both seats- requested new one never received"
Pros: "Good legroom on economy"
Pros: "Great crew, comfortable flight."
Pros: "The plane was late but from that point everything was fine."
Pros: "The in flight experience and entrrntainment was great."
Cons: "The preboarding process by American Airlines was really bad. My passport was looked at 6 times before I boarded. This is after going though passport control by Spain officials at the airport. AA has people waving you down the aisle looking at your passport and sending you to then Verify my boarding pass and that I had documents ok to travel, they told me I did and still sent me over to a security person who asked more questions than the immigration officials in the US, he then sent me to the counter to get my passport scanned ( not sure what that meant), after waiting 10 minutes of waiting the counter clerk asked me what I needed and I told her I was sent there, it was evident there was no reason for me to be there and she printed my boarding pass, which I didn’t need since I had a mobile pass. Then when boarding the aee two people asking a bunch of questions about people having control of their items and looking at your documents which the person who scans to board does again...really very inefficient and slow, it sure it is really helping with safety. Could be done smoother, faster and a lot less people."
Pros: "Flight was delayed so much that I would miss my connection so I never went and am on a new flight today on a different airline"
Pros: "I got there safely."
Cons: "I will never fly American Airlines again. From the moment I checked in with the ticket agent to getting off the plane it was a disaster. The ticket agent was rude, hostile, and dismissive. Employees walked through the line at security forcing everyone to consolidate their belongings to one bag. I had a large wallet in my hand and was told I had to step out of line to put it in my backpack. They only allow you one bag to carry on without paying extra. At the time of boarding they announced that the overhead storage was full so even those that paid extra were still forced to check their bags. The plane was dirty, the service was slow, overall just gross. They don’t have WiFi or in flight entertainment so I paid the $20 to purchase the WiFi. It was worthless. I couldn’t stream anything, even music kept stopping to buffer. I understand it will be slower then on ground WiFi, but it was impossible to watch anything and a complete waste of money."
Pros: "Everything. I bought some souvenir magnets from the shop across from Starbucks near Gate C5(?). The gentleman working the register was very pleasant and was a welcome personality so early in the day. As a service member, I would like to thank him for his service. He was consistent in asking patrons whether they’d like to purchase a travel kit for the troops. A few patrons were abrupt and responded rudely but he maintained a level head and pressed on. Great attitude and professionalism. Thank you very much for your support! Also, I was able to get my Military discount applied towards my purchase which enabled me to purchase 1 travel kits for my fellow service members. A little goes a long way and when returning from deployments or coming home for R&R, it tends to be hectic and I, myself have often forgotten toiletries which I was able to get from the USO. The USO staff were also friendly and did an amazing job handling all of the personnel that funneled in, exhausted. Great attitudes and clean facilities. I would love to see an expansion to this USO location. They were full up this day, thank you for having this available to us! TSgt Angela Santiago Otero, USAF"
Pros: "The plane was newer, drinks are available. Seat only reclines half an inch or so so get ready for that."
Cons: "Crew on aa is the worst bunch of entitled fools, almost as horrendous as united."
Cons: "Got a notification of a TWO HOUR DELAY departing SFO. Rebooked into Charlotte instead of Dallas to connect to Fort Myers. THAT flight got delayed AFTER the doors were closed by another 45 minutes which caused me to miss my connection to Fort Myers AND have American Airlines leave my bag in Charlotte. I rebooked into West Palm Beach to drive to Fort Myers and my bag stayed in Charlotte even though there was ANOTHER 45 minute delay to change a tire on the plane. If I practiced medicine the way the airline handled customers, I'd kill every third patient!"
Pros: "The cabin crew were friendly and apologetic for the chronic problems with the entertainment system. The pilot gave us a smooth flight and landing, and was very conscientious about turbulence prevention and safety."
Cons: "The inflight entertainment system was spotty. Some customers had monitors that worked, some did not. A woman with a two-year old had one of the malfunctioning monitors and was forced to entertain her child for nine hours without tv, movies or music. Similarly, on our flight over to London 10 days earlier, my husband and I were 2 of more than 30 passengers whose monitors never worked and we were forced to fly for 7 hours in the dark on an overnight flight staring at the backs of seats. It was miserable. The cabin crew told passengers they had begged the airline for years to replace the system but the airline refuses. Will not fly American Airlines transatlantic again."
Cons: "I found out at the airport the day we were leaving for Spain that my daughter's passport had to be valid for 3 Months after we returned home from our trip. When booking a flight out of the country it would be nice if Air .com could of mention that to me. We were trying to get to a cruise we had already paid for that was going out of Spain. They would not work with me at all and cx my whole booking. When I tried to talk to them on the phone the man could not speak very good English and was not making any since at all. I let him talk to the British Airlines counter manager and the manager tried to explain that he would have to rebook us that he could not. Air.com was horrible and never helped us out at all. They should not be in business . I paid them of course months ago and I was just out the 1400.00 dollars. British Airlines was amazed that they did nothing to help us out."
Pros: "Never again. I had a connecting flight with a one hour layover and almost missed it. The plane to charlotte was very late boarding. Once i land I rush to my gate because I only have 20 minutes before they start boarding ; I get to the gate and have to wait almost an hour. At this point I still havent eaten because I am waiting around by the gate and the attendants are not communicating any information. Then they finally tell us that the reason the fligt hasnt boarded was because the flight attendant misplaced her luggage in the previous flight and was waiting to arrive to the terminal. Now how is that my issue? American Airlines needs to do better!"
Pros: "The trip from st martin was fine in terms of check in. AA opened their windows early so we beat the crowd."
Cons: "The plane left 20 minutes late, and then we hit turbulence and a bit of rain close to our arrival in Charlotte. I had originally booked a flight through Miami with plenty of layover time to get a connecting flight to Dallas, but AA canceled that one and put me on a connection the following day! When I called customer service, they were helpful in regards booking and assured me there would be plenty of time to connect through Charlotte. When our plane landed 35 minutes late, there was only 15 minutes to connect, and we waited for baggage that whole time. No idea what took baggage so long, but the result is that we missed our flight. AA did put us on standby for the next one, but that meant our relative had to pick us up at midnight."
Cons: "They lost 1 of 4 bags."
Pros: "* on time * courteous staff"
Pros: "Staff was pleasant and efficient. Schedules met my needs."
Cons: "Seats on smaller planes were very tight!!! It's not just your butt in the seat but where do you put your elbows?!?!?!?"
Pros: "The flights left on time and arrived early. It reminded me of the old days when everything ran like clock-work."
Cons: "The leg room was barely enough for me and I'm 5'4". I can't imagine people much larger than me being comfortable at all. Also, the chair made my back hurt, so I did a lot of sitting up straight as opposed to being "in the chair". I noticed that you had snacks for purchase on the flight, but the free snacks were cookies and pretzels. It would be nice to offer a trail mix or dried fruit. Pretzels are good for people who might be a little sick at their stomach, but better snacks are a nice option. I ordered coffee and it was perfect. Overall, the flight was a good flight, just a little tweaking and it would be great. Thanks for asking."
Cons: "It cost me $86 dollars to supposedly upgrade my seat to an exit row with tons of leg room. Granted there was plenty of leg room but the seat was extra narrow to give room for an emergency exit if necessary. I'm not huge but I barely fit in the seat. It was an uncomfortable squeeze which of course got worse as the flight continued. I complained to an attendant that the seat was too small and he had no remedy. If I was a few pounds heavier it would have been impossible. You'd think they would warn a customer of the narrower seat. It's so obvious that it's all about profit for the airlines which sickens me."
Cons: "Apparently my seat change did not go through because I was still stuck in the last row near the bathrooms. I must say, the fecal aroma really complemented the on set nausea that was triggered by the turbulence. Every time I thought I was gona drift off to sleep I was rudely awakened by the constant "thwacking" of the bathroom doors. The family next to me was nice enough but they did have a toddler who was very loud and unhappy and the tantrums followed. I have been a server for 14 years and generally can brush annoyances off like this but this was by far the worst flight I have been on."
Pros: "The flight was not only on time, but a little early!! The flight crew were fantastic & the plane looked new. Everything went according to plan which rarely happens these days!!!"
Pros: "The flight finally went there (it was just the wrong flight and I didn't get a flight back)"
Cons: "My original flight was cancelled so my group was bumped to an earlier flight. However, when we arrived at th airport at 6 am, it turned out that the rest of my group was on that flight but that my ticket was cancelled entirely, and I couldn't get on the new plane because it was oversold-- meaning that, without any warning, I was stranded at the airport in DC at 6 am with not only single available flight that would get me to Indiana in time for work. I ended up having to take a train to Baltimore to catch a flight from there to NC to connect to Indiana- but then that flight was delayed for 2 hours so I missed my connecting flight. By the time I finally arrived in Indiana I was 6 hours late to work. There was no reimbursement for the additional travel expenses, and not even an apology. Then flying back the next day, they cancelled our flight again and we had to rent a van and drive back overnight from Indiana (15 hours drive). I have never had such a miserable travel experience with any other airline."
"Very clean flight. The attendants were very helpful and patient!"
Pros: "Let hour late, landed on time in Charlotte"
Pros: "Smooth flight overall, no major issues"
Cons: "Older plane, limited entertainment options"
Pros: "Once on board, everything was great."
Cons: "The gate was crowded, and it was difficult to hear gate announcements. Everyone was confused unless they'd been there before. The gate assignment is confusing to everyone considering you go through the same door."
Cons: "They skipped me for drinks"
Pros: "Great service from the tiny crew. No issues with boarding, either."
Cons: "Regional jets are so tiny those with small carry-ons are still forced to check their baggage at the gate. How about a larger jet, folks?"
Pros: "staff was fine"
Cons: "Loaded us on the plane and kept us on the small cramped plane for 90 minutes before leaving. Just stuck sitting there"
Pros: "Ease of boarding"
Cons: "Dirty cabin, chairs, and trays. The stewards clearly find it want to be there and it showed in their lack of professionalism, appearance, and service delivered. First class is more like budget class but you board first. Dishes were dirty and and blankets full of hair."
Pros: "everything was on time and no one got kicked off of the flight!"
Cons: "The flight was canceled and was given another longer flight and had to pay for the luggage twice. Totally disappointed."
Cons: "United delayed my flight so I physically couldn't make the next plane, furthermore they didn't compensate my expenses from my extended airport stay which was 12 hours"
Cons: "Our flight was canceled, we were then placed on another flight and when we got to the gate that flight had been cancelled also!"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Layover in Newark was too long and Newark is not a good airport for layover"
Pros: "The flight was good and we arrived on time, despite the fact we left Denver late. Didn't buy any food."
Cons: "The Entertainment choices on this flight were lousy...I also didn't like the fact that I had to buy Economy Plus because my wife and I were not only not assigned seats together after booking, we were not assigned seats at all. When I booked the flights I was only allowed to choose seats for the first flight - Charlotte to Houston...but not for the other three legs of our Charlotte to Seattle trip. The only two seats together from Houston to Seattle were in the very last row. And, on our return flight we had to purchase Economy Plus in order to sit together."
Cons: "The Wi-Fi didn't work when I tried it on my computer."
Cons: "This flight seems to be frequently delayed waiting on the inbound aircraft from SFO to CVG"
Pros: "It was the worse. She is 80 years old. Had wheelchair assistant and the person who take care of her did no have idea where she was flying,"
Cons: "Thanks god after 5 hours one of the crew helped her to sit on the right area to take the flight to Charllote and contacted me ."
Pros: "Very comfortable and enjoyable good vibe not to loud"
Cons: "There wasn't anything I didn't like it was my first flight ever and it was good"
Pros: "All was good. Crew was nice to everyone."
Cons: "Two large people had carry on bags that did fit in the overhead. They kept trying different areas and delaying boarding for other passagers."
Cons: "The flight was delayed almost 5 hrs. I was supposed to arrive in Charlotte, NC around 10pm. I didn't get there until almost 3am. My flight was due to leave at 630pm didn't leave until 1130pm. I called united airlines to try to get another flight but the agent said there were no other flights to Charlotte. I had to change terminals from B to E. while waiting there were many flight delayed by United Airlines. The pilot said that our flight was delayed due to crew issues/not enough leaving Mexico. We were also delayed from leaving IAH because we had to wait to board because there was not enough flight attendants. This trip was a inconvenience of my time. I should be compensated. This was ridiculous! I will never fly United Airlines again. #getittogether #hostageairlines"
Pros: "Your crew was sympathetic to the dry air and happily provided extra water when I asked"
Cons: "Fellow next to me was having a hard time with the credit card use for direct tv."
Pros: "Efficient, smooth boarding, on-time push and take off, good skill on a crosswind landing."
Cons: "Being packed into a CRJ-700 with 50 of my closest friends I never knew. Snacks are ok but nothing exciting. No elbow room (I'm not obese)"
Pros: "The crew on the plane were nice."
Cons: "You cancelled my flight when I was in chicago to cincinnati United did not offer me anything no hotel, money back nothing and I had to be somewhere very important I didn't have my thing because it was in my suitcase which i didn't get till sunday. Ended up renting a car and driving the rest of the way. Never offer anything to help me. Then United messed up my plane ticket on my way back home almost miss my flight."
Pros: "The stewertesses were very kind."
Cons: "One of the united crew men threw my luggage around and and actually caused severe damage to my items inside and on the exterior. He had actually broke my luggage from rough use and being thrown around. I will never fly united again."
Cons: "It delayed an hour for no reason. It was very late flight and then it delayed one hour which was very inconvenient."
Pros: "The crew was nice and the flight was on time."
Cons: "I couldn't get the wifi to connect to united.com. I was disappointed after paying $40 for the upgrade to economy comfort that the seats were hard as a rock and the upgrade didn't provide you anything additional - free drinks and snacks - like it does on Delta. The extra inches of leg room is not worth $40."
Pros: "The crew was wonderful."
Cons: "The temperature on the plane was so cold that ice was falling on passengers throughout the flight from the vents. I chose coffee for my in-flight beverage to warm up, but the flight attendants did not have lids available to offer. As you can imagine, that didn't end well on a turbulent flight."
Pros: "Nice aircraft"
Cons: "Late out of ORD"
Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "Waiting an hour to take off"
Pros: "Aircraft remained grounded for 1h due to a door switch with malfunction."
Pros: "Everything went like clockwork, the announcements, the boarding, the take off, the landing and the on time arrival. This trip was an example of how things should go."
Cons: "Will never fly United again if I can help it. Friday afternoon out of CLT was cancelled and rescheduled for Sat afternoon, we had a Friday night wedding and had to get to Chicago. Agents were completely unhelpful over the phone, went to the airport agents at ticketing counter were also unhelpful and threw up their hands like there was nothing they could do to help us. Finally had to switch to Delta and got to Chicago at 1AM EST, missed the wedding."
Cons: "We waited all evening for a flight that kept being changed and then finally canceled. We were given several reasons from bad weather, mechanical problems, and crew out of hours. We should hv been transferred to another plane sooner without having to stay overnight with no change of clothes or personal items."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 1/2 hours, transferred carriers and still don't have my bag"
Cons: "The flight was delayed so that I would miss my connecting flight so they change me to a different flight which was been cancelled and I had to get a different flight to Detroit where I landed as far from my departing gate as you could possibly make it with 20 minutes to get there"
Pros: "The flight ran ahead of schedule and the crew was polite and efficient."
Cons: "Waiting In the airport 6hr waiting on a flight that takes and hour"
Cons: "The flight attendant woke me up to ask if I wanted a drink."
Pros: "I appreciate the fact that caught the issue with the aircraft while it was on the ground."
Cons: "I don't appreciate a the fact that you made me late for church. Wouldn't have been such a big deal if i wasn't the church's organist."
Pros: "We finally got to Chicago.... In one piece!"
Cons: "The delay, the plane changed so the seat assignments changed but we were not given new boarding passes, A MESS!"
Cons: "Service is not what it used to be!"
Pros: "First off - thank you for putting food back onto what you offer when people fly united. It's a drink and a small snack. It's not much to ask, so I appreciate them putting that back in. I also liked the wifi which allowed me to check where my flight was in the air for free. Overall, I will say united is much improved from where it was - though I'd appreciate some free entertainment."
Cons: "Boarding was a little bit of a mess with our flight. We had a LOT of people on standby that were standing in the boarding lines because no one was communicating to them where they should be and where to go. This is something that should be worked on by them."
Cons: "I did not like having to check my carry on after all. I was told the overheads were full so I could get it in Baggage after the trip. For health reasons I did not want the trip to baggage and I did not want to risk my bag being lost. I drive 3 hrs o the airport and I did not want to drive back or wait 3 days for a lost bag to be sent to me as I have before. The person at the gate was rude when I said you won't lose my luggage will you? he said Probably. I said really, and he said well you did ask."
Pros: "Friendly helpful courteous"
Pros: "I was surprised on how clean the plane was, considering it was an express. The attendance were pleasant as well."
Cons: "How small the snack bag is."
Cons: "The snack food was the worst I've ever had on any flight. It was some kind of Asian-style snack and I almost gagged. Never had a snack on a plane I couldn't eat until now."
Pros: "The plan took off and landed. Not much positive about united."
Cons: "Feel like a number. Crowded zone two line (Platinum and below and all the darn credit card holders. Flight was delayed for no crew, then in was maintenance issue, which could not be addressed until the pilot was there. Ugh. Inefficient."
Cons: "First, when I got to the booth AFTER checking in, they told me that there isn't any more seats on the flight. The attendant proceeded to tell me "just go to JFK and see what happens" obviously I was furious. United will be lucky if I ever fly on them again"
Pros: "The flight was fine nothing to rave about or complain about."
Cons: "The cargo door did jam on the return flight so we had to wait at least 30 minutes to get our bags. Not sure if someone didn't do what they were supposed to do when securing luggage. It took maintenance some time and several calls before they came to assist."
"We got here thirty minutes ahead of schedule. That's pretty awesome. I wouldn't change anything personally."
Pros: "Aircraft was great, new 320 with more silent engines :)"
Cons: "Other travelers continually removed masks; crew corrected them a couple times then gave up"
Pros: "Lady at the check-in terminal was amazing. Flight staff did a good job."
Cons: "There were several “stretch” seats available for passengers filling three seats next to each other and flight crew refused to let people change seats, even if they were on the same side of the plane (weight distribution). Feel like they could have taken care of the customer better."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats."
Pros: "Crew was wonderful. Flight was crowded, and there was a screaming child nearby for half the flight."
Cons: "It’s just the way things are. Wearing a mask is stressful and hot in close quarters."
Pros: "Nothing good"
Cons: "Frontier cancelled flight without notifying us. ( for no apparent reason. Not weather or mechanical) No more flights on the same day. Totally lost our money never flying with them again"
Cons: "More leg room"
Pros: "Cheap! So cheap!"
Cons: "The lavatory could use some love. “Paper Towels” was written in black permanent marker above the dispenser. WiFi would also be nice on a 4.5 hour flight."
Cons: "Flight attendants continued to over serve drunk passengers in row 17 18 and 19. Two large parties came into the plane hammered. One spilled a drink on me while his buddies from across the aisle hit me in the eye with an empty liquor bottle screwing around. Another member of their party got up to go to the bathroom while we were landing. Flight attendants did nothing to accommodate me or the other 100 people pissed st the clowns. Last time I fly frontier most likely. I’ll be calling corporate shortly. Like to know why they continued to over serve them?"
Pros: "The cree"
Cons: "Very friendly"
Pros: "price was amazing! customer service did their job but with little-to-no empathy."
Cons: "the flight was delayed, which i knew about. then it’s was moved up, which i wasn’t informed about until i walked to the gate to find it empty."
Pros: "Nonstop flight."
Cons: "Delay so late arrival."
Pros: "Nothing really after paying $45 and l have to pay another $45 to go back to Cincinnati"
Cons: "Too much luggage fee $45 is too much"
Pros: "It got me where I needed to go, albeit with a little effort and stress. Crew was pleasant. Thank you."
Cons: "6 people overbooked, who might not have gotten seats. I was one of them. I recognize there was nothing I could have done either way but it was unpleasant to hear I might not get a seat on a flight I bought a ticket to a month ago, regardless of the price. And the return flight was dismal. Had to wait an extra 3 hours for maintanence on the plane (fine, would rather it get fixed than have an issue in the air) but we were told there would be vouchers worth some amount sent to our email after we landed back in cincinnati. It's been 3 days and I have received no such vouchers. It also turns out I payed $45 for a personal bag that was I guess covered under a personal bag? I recognize this as being partly my fault, but when I went to get my ticket "personal bag" wasn't an option, so I didn't think I had one, or my single backpack actually was $45 to take with me. Was not a terrible experience. Just not a good one."
Pros: "I liked that I could fly to my destination with a non-stop flight. I also liked the (what seemed to be) final prices of the tickets."
Cons: "I did not like that I had to pay for seats when I already bought a ticket for the flight. It was a hidden fee and unfair to charge. The carry-on bags were also a hidden fee. I figured as much that to check a bag would be more expensive, but to have a carry-on cost as much as a checked bag? Not cool."
Pros: "I arrived alive. Flight was not delayed. Water was free."
Cons: "Leg room and seats lack an appropriate amount of cushions and space for long flights. The seat back trays are a joke. My tablet was bigger than the tray. I also dislike the extra charges for EVERYTHING that was not disclosed on the purchase through Kayak like seat selection, carryon bags, early on zones, etc. No snacks were offered on the flight. I understand that this is a discount carrier, but after all was said and done, I could have paid the same for a major airline and had way more room and comfort. No pre-Check. WTH??!!! The airline attendants bumped me going up and down the aisle EVERY single time and never offered an apology for bumping me and I was NOT in their way."
Cons: "I cancelled my flight a week before the time of departure they said that it'll cost me $99 to cancel the flight and $86.45 was supposed to be refunded. the lady told me it will take 7 to 10 business days when I called 3 days later on the 10th day I called and the gentleman told me that I don't get a refund I get a credit of the $86.45 that I can use to October 7th to use on any flight. My problem with that is I don't fly often and I had to cancel that due to my job. I feel that if I cancel a flight way in advance before the flight is being departed I should be able to get my refund back I'm sorry to say it is but I would never use this airline company again because if I knew that the first time. I wouldn't have done it. Oh I also found out because I keep getting updates from kayak of the flight that the flight was supposed to been I believe was 8:30 p.m. but due to rain it didn't leave Philadelphia Pennsylvania until around 11:45 p.m. so I'm kind of glad now I didn't go because my family member who I was going to visit would have been very upset because they had to stay up an extra 4 hours and they had to go to work the next morning."
Cons: "My flight from LAX-DEN was delayed. Ended up missing my flight, as well as my flight from DEN-CIN. We as passengers were not told where to go (we waited two hours to hear any kind of news). We were told that the Frontier staff would know what was going on at the DEN airport once we arrived, but they did not. We then waited another hour to be told where to go. I was given a voucher for my hotel, food and transportation. However, my transportation voucher did not work. I waited over an hour for a bus that never came. My transportation in the AM back to the airport was not covered either. I ended up paying money out of pocket both times when it should've been free of charge. The staff on the airplanes were OK, although at times unprofessional."
Cons: "Frontier is now a leader in PRICE FRAUD & Extortion! They believe in Dishonest pricing & Deliberately deceiving their customers. They slapped me with an $80 fee to board my flight! Extortion!! So my $170 airfare suddenly increased in price by 47% !! This is a total scam. Worse than a bait & switch scam (which is illegal). Even the smallest tote bag with a toothbrush & overnight clothes will incur extra big fees for carry-on "luggage"... Where is the FCC & the consumer protection bureau on this?...Fees for basic carry-on items needs to be made ILLEGAL!! I'll never fly again with such a dishonest airline. Sign me up for SouthWest every time...I don't care what the price difference is, I refuse to give my money to mobsters.You blew it Frontier! Never Again."
Pros: "The crew was great. The pilot lightened the mood with humor and the announcements were useful ( weather, time zone changes, ETA etc... ). The plane was clean and the price was low."
Cons: "You have to pay forty dollars for a carry on and for any beverage or snack on the flight. There was confusion about the seats as we boarded, which we did by zones, but still had aisle traffic which defeated the purpose. My connection was moved to another gate and they failed to announce it ( yes it was on the screen, but I don't travel that often and was lucky to notice it just as we were boarding... luckily just a few minutes walk away ). The plane offers no entertainment at all ( which is fine for me, but worth knowing... bring a dvd player or something for long trips )."
Cons: "another delay, not as bad"
Pros: "Heather was great with all of the young kids on the flight. A nice greeting, and helped put the kids in a good frame of mind for the trip. The crew hustled given that we were only in the air for 80 minutes!"
Pros: "the direct flight. the only reason i booked with them :/"
Cons: "paid the extra $74 (discounted - bundle rate) fee to check bag and carry on and select a seat! crazy... i was wondering why a 4 hr fight from cincinatti to san diego direct could POSSIBLY cost just $90... now i know.. it DIDNT... it cost $164 each way... lol. NOT. also - the crew was just lame. they didnt look at you ever and you had to flag the down after they passed you to hand over trash... basically just spent their time socializing and had an overal BITCHY tone... that you didnt matter to them. will avoid this airline from now on."
Pros: "Staff were friendly."
Cons: "A basic seat should not cost extra money. Nor should bottled water."
Pros: "The service was efficient and friendly."
Cons: "Not a thing."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing. I just feel lucky I made it back to Orlando considering I did not get to my destination on time."
Cons: "Everything about frontier. I understand it is a budget airline and I don't expect the basic comforts any other airline would provide. However I do not appreciate the hidden fees they will find a way to slap onto a traveler no matter how much research you do. In reality they are probably one of the more expensive airlines although they have no customer service and you could not possibly imagine a more uncomfortable flight. I also no longer trust them to to get me to a destination on time. I will never fly frontier again and kayak should consider no longer booking flights with this airline. When I tried to complain they referred me to kayak as if it was kayaks fault that my flight was delayed."
Pros: "Arrived at airport at 940 pm which was great because we were early but didn't get off the plane until almost 12am due to an airplane being worked on at our parking gate and also had to wait for local sheriffs office to board the plane to escort a lady off the plane when we finally did park and during that time the flight attendants were yelling at the paying customers because they had their phones out. One flight attendant even smacked a phone out of someone's hands! Will take a miracle to get me and my family to ever fly frontier again. Worse flight experience ever."
Cons: "Flight was canceled due to "maintenance issues". Agent was not empathetic at all. When asked when or if the flight was going to leave...she said don't know. I said so you're basically saying it could be midnight before you might have an answer...she said basically yes. and to top it off there was no agents behind the ticketing desk to assist with refunds. We were able to get our money back by having to call Frontier directly. Lourde was very helpful, but the Frontier agents at charlotte douglas were no help at all. Will never fly Frontier!"
Pros: "Nothing atm, still waiting for my refund."
Cons: "Flight delayed, which as a rational person I can understand. What I do not find acceptable in the slightest is the dragging everyone along like the flight was going to happen. Could have gotten some sleep after a long day of travel, instead spent the night in an airport for NO REASON. Even got to sit on a plane for over an hour for nothing. Please, work on your communication. If you don't have staff, tell us, at least I could have rebooked my trip, or at the very least decided to wait until you had a staffed flight the next morning. Unless I see good changes at Frontier, I'm sorry but I will not be using them any longer."
Pros: "Good fare"
Cons: "baggage prices"
Cons: "The flight was delayed for 6.5 hours. At one point we actually boarded the plane, only to sit there for an hour, and the be told they couldn't locate the Capitan. We then had to deboard, and "hope" they were going to find a flight crew for us. Got a refund and flew United. I will never waste my time on Frontier again."
Pros: "Nothing at all."
Cons: "If you want to get stranded, fly Frontier."
Pros: "Flight was reasonably priced. Flight options were great"
Cons: "Rates are misleading. Once you add in the higher baggage fee, the seat fees (no free seats), the flight is priced the same if not higher than other airlines but the real difference is in all of this is customer service. The lead flight attendant on the my flight was extremely rude and unresponsive. My mother had a wheelchair assist her to the gate for our departing flight in Orlando. This was arranged by the ticket counter. Apparently, Frontier screwed up and did not arrange for a wheelchair to meet us at the gate in Charlotte. When we mentioned this to the lead flight attendant, he said we would need to go and find one ourselves. I asked if he could call the gate and asked them to bring one so I wouldn't have to leave my elderly mother, he said, "no". I asked again and explained that I didn't want to leave my mother. This time he rolled his eyes at me and said, it wasn't his problem. Really? This is precisely the reason I will not take Frontier again. Please look into training your people better or your hiring process. Cheap flight do not address this issue."
Pros: "Price of the flight."
Cons: "The temperature in the cabin was very uncomfortable. The seats are way too tiny, and I am not a large person.The flight crew played with the lighting too much. This was annoying since it was a red eye flight. The website is not user friendly. I thought I had reserved a seat but that was not the case when I got to the airport. I will probably stop flying with this airline even though I have flown with them many times in the past."
Pros: "The humor of the crew, the skill of the pilots"
Cons: "Seats are impossible to get comfortable in. The cabin temperature was too warm to he point I felt air sick."
Pros: "The no-frills (cheap) pricing."
Cons: "We had about a 3 hour delay with no explanation. The tickets told us to be there for boarding at the normal time though, so we were essentially threatened with missing the flight and had to hang out in the airport for several hours. The seats don't lie back at all, and the airline is very basic. Then again, you get what you pay for and we were expecting that."
Cons: "The seats don't fit anyone over 6 foot and I'm 6 foot 3 inches. The head rests at that angle cause your head to lean back at an angle so steep that it takes all of 5 minutes to develop a pain and have to lean forward. There is also not enough leg room for people with above an 30 inch inseam to sit comfortably. There was a delay in the maintenance, the fuel truck, the baggage truck, and the departure. Once at the arrival gate, they were not prepared to guide the plane into the gate which caused more delays. I also found the sarcastic attitude of the flight attendants doing the safety speech unprofessional and made Frontier look like the sub par airline that its okay being. No trust in comfort, time deadlines, or customer service. You will get a cheap flight, not really if you have a carryon or want to pich your seat, at an odd time, with a bunch of people doing the same thing your doing."
Pros: "Boarding was quick. Enough room for carry on items."
Cons: "Seats are tight/uncomfortable. Flight was delayed with no notice until we looked at flight boards after getting through security."
Pros: "Boarding was fast and orderly"
Cons: "First off I didn't realize that you had to pay $30 for a carry-on(this is not a mistake). Second I didn't realize that when you buy a ticket that it doesn't include any seat, and that you have to actually pay a fee to get a seat. Which is an additional $16 at the cheapest. Finally the plane was really old, and the seats were extremely uncomfortable with almost no padding at all. I would be able to put up with the uncomfortable conditions if I was actually saving money, but after paying for a seat and a carry-on, it was the same or more than other carriers."
Pros: "Crew was friendly, humorous, and accommodating."
Cons: "Charging for any kind of snack or drink is pretty frugal and ridiculous. At least having some complimentary drinks would be nice. Most airlines have a movable headrest, complimentary music, and recliner chairs. I understand cost savings and maximizing profit, but I feel like frontier has gone too far and seems unconcerned with customer contentment. Also, we arrived at the gate 40 minutes late because our gate was occupied by another plane. An alternate gate could have been chosen earlier than it was in the end."
Pros: "Aircraft was clean, staff were really friendly and professional, no flight issues"
Cons: "Did not like size of pull down trays, do not like paying for a cup of coffee and sure as hell do not like being asked to leave. A tip for the attendant when using a credit card. Do not like to be gouged for amenities that were once free."
Pros: "The time of the day the flight was supposed to occur"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 12 hours before scheduled to take off; didn't have a pilot. Having to pay for seats and luggage; Seats did not recline; Flight took off 45 minutes late; when we arrived in Denver there was no place to park the plane; waited for an hour and 10 minutes to get off the plane; captain kept on giving us inaccurate information; lots of apologies but it was enough to prevent me from flying with them again. They have gone from a great airline to a horrible airline - you get what you pay for"
Pros: "got there safely and our checked luggage went with us ; plus the employees were nice but that's about it. Could've been worse but won't Frontier to make it so in the future."
Cons: "We were late arriving on both flights, online check in didn't work, had to pay extra for ANY seat and for all other things that aren't normally paid for on other airlines and the airline overall is obviously barely making it. I thought that major carriers such as Delta and United were bad but Frontier and so many others that are cut rate airlines make them look not so bad which is why I'll go back to flying with them and Frontier will probably never see my money again."
Pros: "Flight attendants were nice."
Cons: "Flight delayed. Disorganized boarding. Generally uncomfortable an unpleasant."
Pros: "Great price and direct flights"
Cons: "The flight was delayed for 4 hrs and that caused many of the passengers to be irate by the time the flight boarded. The boarding crew should have been a bit more competent and comforting to assure passengers."
Pros: "The color of their uniforms were very nice and professional. The animal themed planes were fun as well!"
Cons: "Poor customer service. We got to the airport 3 hours ahead of time and it took well over an hour for them to check in baggage (keep in mind we checked in our bags online and there were only 8 people in front of us) we made it to our gate 30min ahead of time. It was terrible. Tried to be kind to the staff but they were not having it. Very inconsiderate of others and doing their job in a timely fashion. They also lost my luggage. Since the airline is so cheep they don't keep staff on hand to handle issues after the flight lands. No desk to report to, no phone number to call; as if you never even flown with them. It was very alarming as I had important clothing for an interview, medicine, and other personal items that would not easily be replaced. Never flying frontier again."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable and I arrived safely. Grateful for these aspects of my trip."
Cons: "Employees were rude from the time I checked my bag, through to the end of the trip. Inaccurate information about flight times provided before and during the flight made it stressful to make my connection. The hidden fees were ridiculous, such as $1.99 for seltzer water, and a $40 (FORTY!!) bag fee. Note that you cannot pay in cash for anything. Not so unusual, but a pain since my debit card was lost. I was not even offered a cup of water on either flight of this trip. Overall, I would NOT choose to fly Frontier Airlines again unless absolutely necessary."
Pros: "The room between seats in the cabin."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed 2 1/2 hrs. We were told we would be updated every 15 min. Not! Finally a plane was coming from 2 terminals away. It took over 45 min to get to our gate, with no updates every 15 min. Emails updating our flight status reached us as we were on board the airplane. Not helpful. We reached home at midnight when we had planned to be there by 9pm, in order to shop before Sunday. Even though we weren't in a time crunch to arrive, my time is obviously not valued by this airline. I will make every effort to NOT fly this airline in the future."
Pros: "For a traveller, without any luggage or even a small carry- on, with a very nominal fee, it is the best & economical way to travel. For example, in my case, my son & myself had to take all his stuff like sofa, bed, dressers, chairs, tables, & kitchen wares other household items in a U-Haul & drove his car ti Cincinnati, Ohio (as he finished his studies in GMC & had to start his residency in children hospital in Cin......After unloading all the stuff in his apartment, I had fly back to Atlanta with only a small backpack, there was no sense to pay about $250.00 with Delta, it was a logical way of coming by Frontier costing less than $50.00. with comfortable seats within an hour."
