Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Not really an experienced flyer. Overall the flight seemed good. No issues with airline or airport. Just don’t understand self-important people that feel compelled to push the overhead storage limits with their bags."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly. Food was excellent"
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 The seats in coach were too close together and the entertainment system was slow and seemed outdated."
Cons: "more leg room is needed"
Cons: "Better screens for in-flight movies. More legroom or upgrade options."
Pros: "Not much. Boarding by "zone" works ok, but is no quicker than most other boarding methods."
Cons: "Boeing 767-400ER seats had no leg room for 6'+ traveller like me. The entertainment system was so old that there were no 115v outlets or USB ports. On a 7-hour flight, that is a significant problem for travellers today with multiple electronic devices. Finally, we were not told in advance that we had to go through security twice and through US Customs BEFORE leaving Dublin. So, the 6-hour layover at JFK was a complete waste of our time as we did not have to go through Customs there."
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: "The people was relaxed and the flight attendant was polite and professional.. everything was on time"
Cons: "Nothing at all great service"
Pros: "Roomier than a lot of airplanes."
Cons: "Bumpy ride. Nobody's fault."
Pros: "Love the built in tv’s with free entertainment."
Cons: "The plane got delayed on the runway and the shut the engines off so the plane got super hot, but even after we got up in the air it never cooled down. Normally I’m freezing on flights, but I just sat sweating this whole flight. It was terrible."
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: "The seats had plenty of leg room and the crew was was very kind."
Cons: "My seat was uncomfortable and I was seated in the only row of the aircraft without entertainment for a four hour flight. Then on top of that the passenger next to me removed his shoes and you could smell his feet from a mile away but the flight attendants never requested for him to replace his shoes."
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: "Everyone who has a kid knows how challenging certain things can be in a flight and for me the combination of a night flight interrupting my baby’sschedule + a full flight it equalized disaster. My daughter could not get comfortable for the love of life and I just felt horrible and frustrated and what sucked most was the 9 year old and her obese father siting in our row that kept giving us weird looks."
Cons: "There’s NO room in planes between seats. It’s 2018 and new planes must be done ASAP to accommodate people better. I’m 5’1” and 110 lbs but adding my 25lb daughter siting in my lap before she turns 2 is absurd to expect that it will be comfortable whatsoever for us or the people breathing next to us. Please DELTA, lead by example and make sure your planes are designed with more room in between and around the seats. In my opinion, every seat should be first class."
Pros: "I usually have had great experiences with Delta. The meal selection was limited. By the time they made it up to my seat they had run out of what we wanted. Also, the entertainment system at my seat and my husbands wasn’t working well. One of the bathrooms had a cabinets Tvst oliiiooooiiooooioiooiiiooiio"
Pros: "The staff really helped me out getting on standby so that I didn't have to wait for a 9 hour layover. Overall great experience and great staff."
Pros: "Great in every way"
Pros: "CVG isn't a huge airport, but it has a good amount of things to keep you entertained/well fed."
Cons: "CVG security line isn't terrible, but there seemingly is ALWAYS a decent wait. When a flight is full, like this one, it's never very comfortable – even a short 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"
Pros: "It got me home, eventually."
Cons: "Poor communication, a 6 hour delay followed by a 7 hour layover (during which we had to sleep on an airport floor because Delta couldn't offer us any hotel vouchers). Gate agents disappeared after 7pm becuase they were due to be done with their shifts when our flight was originally supposed to leave at 6 pm. It felt like we were trapped in the movie The Terminal. Oh! And our bag was misrouted, because that was just how things went those 2 days. All in all a 6 hour trip turned into 18 hours. I could have driven home in that amount of time!"
Cons: "Check in lines were crazy long"
Cons: "My daughter was stuck in SLC for 5 hours because there 1 cancelled flight and 1 delayed flight. It was very upsetting not knowing when she going to arrive in Denver."
Pros: "Love the inflight entertainment and the usb plug for phones. Flight left on time and go in a little early"
Cons: "Did not love getting charged $2 for headphones and the girl sitting next to me getting them for free. Super annoying"
Pros: "First leg from San Diego was excellent."
Cons: "Arriving in SLC discovered out flight to Denver was CANCELLED! Had to reschedule to the next day. Not fun!"
Pros: "The entertainment unit allowed me to watch the Denver Broncos game live which helped lessen the delayed departure and uncomfortable seating."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seating....too crowded!! We had a delayed departure by 30-40 minutes because of a computer download issue. Too many folks carrying carry-ons delayed boarding. I wish folks were not encouraged to go that route but to check baggage. This time of year gets even tougher with folks carrying Christmas presents and over sized personal items. Ugh. Not fun to travel this time of year."
Pros: "App is good and convenient to use."
Cons: "The app went down just as we were getting ready to board and luckily i had a printed pass and it took some extra time to check in."
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: "Free in flight entertainment"
Cons: "One of my bags went to Santa Fe"
Pros: "Early arrival. And service"
Cons: "I was assigned very last seat and there is no reclining option."
Cons: "long wait and delayed flight"
Pros: "WiFi, good flight attendants"
Cons: "Would like to see Direct TV along with Delta Suite so can watch live TV"
Cons: "We did not board at the scheduled time, although I believe we arrived on time. The crew was demeaning and singled out individuals who were causing the aircraft to not move. It was in a very pretentious manner, not like southwest personnel who have similar antics but with a playful tone. The plane is a small one where bags don't fit overhead and many head bumps occur. We arrived fine which mean the flight was successful but it was not very enjoyable."
Pros: "Left on time, arrived early. Great cabin service, attentive and polite. Comfort Plus seats are worth the extra few bucks."
Cons: "Nothing. Low rating for entertainment only because there really wasn't any, but I wouldn't have used it anyway, so no big deal."
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"
Pros: "All went as planned and expected. No thrill- like taking a Greyhound bus in the old days...gets you where you are going but without much pizzazz New seats and quite clean, but the new seats were very hard and uncomfortable after an hour."
Cons: "Somewhat claustrophobic and always wish the drop down tray table behind could be disconnected from my seat. When the passenger behind uses the tray as a set of bongo drums to keep beat with his headphones it is a pretty miserable trip."
Cons: "I'm not sure how you lose a bag on a direct flight from Atlanta to Denver, but Delta found a way to do it. They didn't even put my bag on the plane and had to send it with the next one coming. To their credit, they did drive it out to my house when it got here."
Pros: "The only airline that I'm aware of that still offers: • free snacks • free checked bags • free meal and drinks on international flights"
Pros: "Really surprised to see that Deltas new 737's had free in seat entertainment."
Cons: "Boarding was a little awkward."
Cons: "i checked my bag and did not have any carry-on. Generally, i feel i should be offered boarding before all the masses who try to carry on bags that are too large and need to be gate-checked....they clog up the ramp and aisles once on the plane (this is a general complaint that is not directed at Delta specifically...applies to all airlines)"
Cons: "Seating is too crowded"
Pros: "Tail winds provided an early arrival. When my flight was rebooked due to a delay on my first booking I was upgraded to Permium booking and drinks were complementary on the flight from Atlanta to Philadelphia."
Pros: "Appreciate having movies available through wifi however didn't realize this until only an hour left in flight."
Pros: "Quick hop from Cincinnati to DC - efficient, nice flight."
Pros: "The cookies!!!"
Cons: "To cold on plane"
Pros: "I appreciated that everyone gave us updates constantly to let us know the status of the flights"
Cons: "My flight from Detroit to Denver was suppose to land at 1:15 ish and I had an interview to make at 3:30 thinking that I would have plenty of time to grab my bags and and get a cab to greenwood which is where my interview was. The flight was delays almost 3 hours and I was not able to make my interview which was the whole reason I flew to Denver in the first place. I understand that things happen but now Im out of a possible job that I was interviewing for and I am also out the $250 that I spent on the flight. The flight was delayed because they didn't have a crew to fly the plane which blindside is always 20/20 however it seems like pretty poor planning."
Cons: "no food. no entertainment"
Pros: "The teeny bag of free pretzels"
Cons: "Very bumpy flight. No movie"
Cons: "Leg room was way too small, bathroom had no water in the sink, horrible flight!"
Pros: "Plane had three delays. Apparently American mechanics are not allowed to strike so they have these fake or very slow mechanical issues."
Cons: "Be on time. We missed our overseas connection and had to buy new tickets to Italy"
Pros: "Crew on board are great."
Cons: "American keeps canceling and changing schedules. They cancelled flight section and took it out of my itinerary. Then took over 3 calls and 2 hours on hold to fix."
Pros: "Seat was good."
Cons: "Paid extra for free booze, but they didn’t serve booze, except to first class of course. Saying the flight was so quick, they weren’t even getting it out."
Pros: "Very helpful crew."
Cons: "Too often the video screen I’m given doesn’t charge up and it has to be replaced mid flight. This happened again during this flight when 2 screens didn’t charge and had to be replaced before the movie ended. The crew was helpful, but this problem is annoying."
Pros: "Crew was wonderful."
Cons: "Not much leg room."
Pros: "I loved everything"
Pros: "Amazing crew"
Cons: "Great services"
Cons: "Cabin was freezing cold. Flight on time. No major issuess"
Pros: "The flight itself was uneventful, which is what you want from a flight. Once the connection was made the next day, the flight segment went perfectly."
Cons: "Flight was over 2 hours late leaving Lima, so many people missed connections in Miami, NOBODY from LATAM was at the gate to assist with how to make new connections or how to get local accommodations for the night. This was a customer service fail. American is no better. They rescheduled the flight at no cost, but then sent you back to LATAM for help with the overnight. If we buy tickets from your website and you own the process, you should be more helpful when there are problems. The back-and-forth was frustrating. Lima airport takes a long time to go through all the checkpoints. Two hours does not give enough time. There are at least four long lines that have to be endured. This process could use some streamlining."
Pros: "Niçoise salad was great. Had plenty of room in priority with pillow/blanket/headphones etc provided"
Pros: "Smootm and in early."
Cons: "Not knowing no gratis drinks were served."
Cons: "3 hours delay, NOT entertainment at all, this is ridiculous! The dinner was regular, but breakfast was terrible."
Pros: "We took off and arrived on time. That was the only thing they did right."
Cons: "The service was terrible. The stewardess was clearly doing exactly what she needed to in order to not get fired."
Pros: "On time. Was able to sleep through much of what was likely an annoying flight because there was no personal entertainment--the tiny screens overhead would have been impossible to see and they were showing a movie that was lame. It seemed anachronistic."
Cons: "At the Lima gate they made each passenger open their carryon and submit to a secondary inspection to confiscate all water we bought past security. No warning was given about this. I had paid airport prices for water to bring onto the plane and then had to surrender it at the gate. Of course in economy class they will not give you water or attention until you are at cruising altitude. More than one flight attendant did not smile and one was actually rude in spite of my attempts to be kind and smile. Except for one friendly person at check-in kiosk, bad service overall. They do not have personal entertainment systems, and it was like going back in time with the tiny screens you cannot see, playing a movie you either watch it or not."
Cons: "My flight from SFO to Miami was delayed so I missed my connection to Rio and now I’m NYC on my birthday instead of my final destination. The flight status was changed 7 times. And AA said they would get my bag off but they did not and now I have to wait at JFK and hope it got rerouted here. And if it didn’t to hope it can on another flight before I hopefully actually get on a flight for Rio. Nobody has comped me for losing a day in Rio and for my hotel room. And this has been the worst flight exeperience or my life which unfortunately landed on my birthday. One I’ll remember in a sad and bad way. American Airlines refused to compensate me because I got my tickets via Kayak and I haven’t been able to find a number to complain to a Kayak agent whom I sure would say I had to contact American Airlines and nobody would help or take responsilvitu for this disaster."
Pros: "the staff was great from check in at the airport until I landed"
Cons: "I wish the snacks were heathy like dried fruit and nuts"
Cons: "Food in general"
Pros: "Arrived 20 min early. Smooth flight."
Cons: "Didn’t have individual movie screens."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable enough"
Cons: "They force you to get to the airport really early."

Cons: "It was the worst seat I have ever had."
Cons: "MISSED MY FLIGHT DUE TO LUGGAGE CHECK IN TIMING EVEN THOUGH THE FLIGHT WAS DELAYED FOR ANOTHER HOUR."
Pros: "The onboard entertainment has definitely improved. Nice to see how organize is the boarding process when compare to other local airlines."
Cons: "I was seating in the front of the plane were the seating should be better. The seat reclined minimum. Also, had the had luck to travel next to an amazing mother who was traveling with two small kinds and a dog. Brave woman but nasty flight for me. Need to improve the meals on the international flights. Too mediocre."
Pros: "The AA counter agent was very helpful in changing my flight?"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "That the staff at American Aiirlunes were helpful in getting me to my destination."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and then canceled!!!!! I missed my connecting flight in Miami."
Cons: "My ticket was cancelled because of a misrepresentation made by an agent when I had to rebook the outgoing leg of this trip. I had to pay $670 for new ticket at the airport with no other options and very little help from the LatAm agents. I'll never book another ticket with this airline."
Pros: "The A321-S was a pretty good aircraft. Nicely updated interior. Staff were young & professional. Everyone was happy, efficient and professional. It was nice to see the Captain smile and say goodbye to ALL the passengers. Well done AA!"

Pros: "I got an upgrade which was nice. The crew was friendly"

Cons: "No entertainment, no food"
Cons: "I booked the flight with Kayak and it showed the airline as Finnair, the flight was actually with American, no complains about it. The issue was that Kayak did not update me with the Flight number for American Airlines and kept sending me information about the flight with Finnair which was not going to actually take place. I had to actually call American and spend time with a Representative providing all the data to be able to get my American Airlines flight booking code so I could check in online. American as always was great! Shame on Kayak!"
Pros: "Smooth ride."
Cons: "Waited on gate agents for more than 20 mins from 1.39 pm to 2.00 pm And this was a scheduled flight. This is sloppiness."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Smooth flight."
Cons: "In flight entertainment was below expectations"
Cons: "Delay No direction help for the gate Bad seats"
Cons: "Flight leaving Miami delayed 1.5 hrs Flight leaving London delayed 3hrs"
Cons: "my luggage was lost between Dallas and St petersburg russia and I waited 5 days to receive it"
Cons: "Flying old dilapidated 767-300 on 10.5 hour overseas flight is not a good idea Crappy seats, no in-seat entertainment, non-working overhead lights on the first flight... AA in it's usual glory. Mediocre company at best."
Pros: "Everything was perfect."
Cons: "the flight did not have charging areas on the plane for phones for the regular seating. also, the seating was much tighter and our arm rest was not functioning. On all the planes going to our destination the accommodations were much different."

Cons: "Crew unfriendly. Flight attendants and pilots never acknowledged us or said hello or thank you."
Pros: "It was good quality for the price."
Pros: "There was nothing outstanding really"
Cons: "It’s a low cost airline, so expectations are very low. Plane was very dirty because it just keeps on hopping back and forth without any cleaning service it seems"
Pros: "Slight weather delay, no problem. We were assigned to seats with additional leg room that we didn't pay for, that was a nice & unexpected upgrade."
Cons: "I was a bit annoyed that my TSA Precheck was not included on my return ticket although I purchased the RT tickets through my Allegiant account that has all of that on my profile information. Feel like this should automatically have been added when tickets were purchased."
Pros: "The crew was very nice."
Cons: "The AC was broken - only the front half of the plane was getting it. The back half was very hot."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Crew unfriendly, sometimes rude"
Pros: "We finally got to our destination"
Cons: "Uhh not boarding and then the pilot coming on and saying "whoops we have to deplane since the weather is bad." Really? Why not just delay boarding instead of putting everyone through that. Terrible experience"
Cons: "Very dissatisfied with boarding and told we had to pay for our luggage but noone else did .I had prepaid for 1 incase I brought big luggage but I brought carry ones. So I was charged 100..but everyone else's was larger"
Pros: "Pilot was friendly"
Cons: "A little confusion about departure gate"
Pros: "The crew was courteous and helpful; plane was clean; flight was on time; no problems"
Pros: "The captain was very good, and we arrived early to our destination. We had to hold back before landing, due to smaller planes landing, so the captain pointed out some areas along our path! Loved it! The flight was smooth."
Cons: "We had to be in the boarding area an hour before the flight was scheduled to leave. However, because of the way that the flights are scheduled, people were still deplaning from the previous flight for 25 minutes after our gate arrival time."
Pros: "timeliness of the flight professionalism of the crew immediate attention to a passenger who fainted"
Cons: "passengers were cold and there were no blankets to be offered there were no hot beverages and it was very cold. all beverages were for purchase and yet no complimentary hot coffee nor tea, even if you wanted to pay"
Pros: "Friendly pilot."
Cons: "My reading light kept flashing off and on. So I couldn't read my book."
Cons: "I bought a flight that I had to end up cancelling - when I called to cancel - within the 24 hour period, they would not let me cancel despite text on my confirmation saying that there would be a free cancellation within the 24 hours. Extremely annoyed that there was a blatant miscommunication. I did not end up going on the flight but was unable to get a refund which seems ridiculous given that there was text on the website explicitly saying this was their policy."
Pros: "Great crew fast service and flight smooth !"
Cons: "I’m tall and have some back issues I found the seats very close and not too comfortable ! I tried to get A seat by the emergency exit but wasn’t early enough on my pick !"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 6 hours."
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: "Long wait due to plane speaker malfunction. Offered free drink pours on flight once we finally took off but it was a very small “2 sip” pour."
Cons: "7.5HR DELAY. LOST A DAY. ARRIVING AT 3AM VS 6:30PM TECH ISSUES NOT ALLOWING CHECKIN ONLINE POORLY TRAINED STAFF AND SUPERIORS AT CHECKIN ONE HR ON TARMAC AS PER HEADCOUNT ISSUE WHEREBY, TWICE ASKED ON PLANE WHO I WAS. EMBARASSING. RUINED MY VACA WITH MY HUSBAND SANS KIDS:-(((((("
Pros: "Standard no frills airline"
Cons: "No room for overhead bags near my seat. I paid $25 to sit up front and $35 for a carry on. I paid extra with the goal of deplaining first. Crew refused to allow me to stow the bags in the front bin, had to place it 10 rows back. If I didn’t run to my gags as soon as Wen landed would have been the last to deplane. If allegiant is going to charge so much for carry on, they need to find a way so front passengers are not squeezed out like this."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 9 hrs. We were going to NYC for 2 days. We missed an entire day--- cut our trip in half."
Pros: "Flight crew were very polite and we received free soda. Free booze however would have been more appropriate after spending my entire New Year’s Day in an airport."
Cons: "Reviewed 9 hours because a crew member didn’t show. Was originally told 6 hours delay only 20 minutes before the flight was due to leave. Received two $8 meal vouchers and rude and slow service from the entire ground crew."
Pros: "Great airfare, great staff, etc. Cant help that the passengers are idiots ! Love this place."
Pros: "terminal small and easy to navigate"
Cons: "flight was late because of a "valve issue" in terminal, then on the plane pilot tells us its a computer issue and just needed to "reboot" plane computer because it's a computer with wings. Not sure if either of those reasons were true."
Cons: "parking my car 2 weeks in Asheville Long term was $96. I should have gone to Charlotte, parked at my friend's house and paid AA the same rate for a nicer seat and cabin leg room. a la carte pricing ran my bill up even with NO checked luggage. Asheville doesn't have a shuttle service for the long-term parking."
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."
Cons: "I attempted to check in online and was unable to do so. Bad app."
Pros: "New plane!"
Cons: "Boarded too early!"
Pros: "- Good price, even with carry-on and larger seat. - Comfortable seats, despite no incline - better than major airlines."
Cons: "- No food or drinks. - No entertainment. Both are acceptable given the price. - Misinformation regarding flight delay, I was sent notifications and app updated to be 1 hour late. However on arrival, boarding time was as usual."
Pros: "Great flight!"
Cons: "Price, service"
Pros: "They offered a direct flight from Cincinnati to Austin. The price was good, even though they charge for carry on."
Cons: "They land at the Austin airport, kind of. Once we landed they took us to a Remote terminal which required waiting for a bus to fill up and then take you back to the actual airport. There was no quick way for the bus to return and it has to drive for 15 to 20 minutes to get to the main airport. I took 1 complete hour from when I landed to when I got in my car in lot D."
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: "Everything was great during the flight but..."
Cons: "We were delayed over 7 hours, with only a $50 dollar future airline credit and an $8 meal voucher. That's not nearly enough for that kind of headache. It was 2 am before we arrived at our hotel."
Pros: "Good for Domestic travels"
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."
Cons: "I didn't like how the air was turned off before we were allowed to leave the plane. It made it difficult to breathe with my asthma."
Pros: "Easy boarding, smooth flight, quick cart service, fast flying"
Cons: "Seats are so small I was window seat with two men who were jammed up so uncomfortably in their seats I felt bad. I was cramped cause they had no choice but to spill over in my seat. I understand safety is important but unless the plane is in middle of taking off or landing, or horrible turbulence anyone should be able to use the bathroom. We had landed and were just sitting and waiting on a gate to open. My fellow travler happened to be on her period n was told No she could not use the bathroom. After the 3rd time of her being sent back I got up with her and a tampon in hand n told the staff they had no choice she was using that bathroom. Of course they had to phone the captain and ask for permission which he ok it, but seriously , what are we supposed to do just sit in our blood. That was not cool."
Pros: "Very smooth ride and attentive friendly staff"
Cons: "Snacks were over charged."
Cons: "Arrival in Ft Lauderdale... Bags took an hour to get to carrousel. Never were posted on the information. Flight were, as expected, uncomfortable."
Pros: "Great price ."
Cons: "Landing in Austin and having to walk down a wet slippery ramp and then across the tarmac in a thunderstorm ... got VERY wet . How about a cover ?"
Pros: "Flight attendants were very kind."
Pros: "The price and the fact that our flight left late but still arrived almost on time."
Cons: "The gate agent wouldn't switch our seats so we could sit beside each other. We've done this multiple times if we find ourselves not out beside each other and it's never been a problem before. He claimed he had to charge us to do this. We have never been charged before. We fly Allegiant often. The on-board flight crew were so not friendly at all. Typically Allegiant flight attendants aren't as happy as Southwest but they're at least cordial. This crew we're just unhappy, snippy, a little unprofessional (saying huh or what instead of excuse me. Pointing people to things instead of getting it for them or walking them to it) and at one point one stewardess was just rude to a passenger."
Pros: "Quick flight."
Cons: "You have to pay extra for everything."
Cons: "Flight was delayed an hour for "paperwork". Can't be helped by the crew, but an administrative errors are just as bad."
Cons: "Seats were made of stone."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 8 hours"
Pros: "The flight was fast, and direct."
Cons: "The seats"
Pros: "The seat was more spacious than I expected and the flight was very comfortable as a result."
Pros: "Crew was funny."
Pros: "Great price Non stop Flight at good time"
Cons: "Kayak web site a little hard to navigate"
Cons: "A 2 hour delay on my outgoing flight and a half hour delay on my return flight. Charged for everything and then some. Will not fly Frontier Airlines again. I wish I had a better review."
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: "SEAT SPACE"
Cons: "Boarding zones designation. Payinng for a snack pack or even a softdrink/water. Pushing your card up n down the isle. Paying for carry on."
Pros: "Timeliness of plane departure. Airefate was a great deal ."
Cons: "Excessive baggage fees"
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: "Arrived on time time only to be told to wait in line as others who arrived late and after me were moved to front of check in line. Stuck on tarmac due to rain: 30 minutes so far. Crew on board was fine. True what others say about plane feeling old."
Pros: "New planes Courteous crew On time"
Cons: "Baggage charges"
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."
Pros: "Check in was quick and pleasant. There was a delay of an hour due to weather elsewhere. Boarding was easy and I found my seat to be comfortable. I didn't purchase food or entertainment. The crew was polite and professional."
Pros: "Everything about the flight itself was great! :D"
Cons: "Delays always suck though. :("
Pros: "The price."
Pros: "Girl at checkin was nice."
Cons: "Wish you had boarding pass on mobile phone so wouldn't have to stand in line to get pass"
Cons: "The flight was late and no one informed us."
Cons: "Supposed to leave at 8:00 PM. Then at 9:45PM. Actually Left at 12:30 AM. No announcements as to why the delays. Once on aircraft, still no indication or apology as to why the huge delay. I will never book on Frontier again. Also new seats on Airbus are terrible!!"
Pros: "Having flown Frontier before knew what to expect. You are charged extra for everything"
Cons: "Good and drinks are pricy. My flight was 2 hours would not want to sit in their non reclining seats longer than that. Took over 30 minutes for bags to arrive at baggage claim."
Cons: "The 8Pm flight got to the airport at 12:20 Am . We boarded the flight and departed Cincinnati at1245. Arrived in Orlando at1:40 am. I have to take a van to my home 50 miles from Orlando and got home at3;38am from a flight that was suspose to get me home much early. I don't think I will be flying Frontier Airlines again. Betty Overman"
Pros: "smooth flight, nice people"
Cons: "No free tea"
Pros: "On time, price was good"
Cons: "Zones were only called once"
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 flight was on time"
Cons: "The seats were not comfortable, length of time for check in, although we were early, we couldnt check in early"
Pros: "The crew all were friendly; they greeted you when you boarded and when you exited. The pilot informed you when you he had been given the ok to land. The weather in Cincinnati."
Pros: "Frontier encourages you to check your bag by offering a lower fee for checking than carrying the bag onto the plane This made getting into and out of the plane so much quicker The seats were comfortable enough and I had my own food and beverages so did not need to purchase any."
Cons: "My reasonable priced ticket went up $104 by the time I paid to check my bag and pick a seat. I would rather gate check my bag and get it when I exit the plane because it took over an hour for it to come to baggage claim."
Pros: "Very courteous and friendly staff."
Cons: "Everything costs extra...seat choice, snacks, drinks. I need to drink a lot of water and dislike that I have to pay for some when I can't bring my own in"
Pros: "The boarding process (zones) and the legroom."
Cons: "MIddle of aircraft where I sat was freezing cold. Didn't like having to pay additional for seat and for baggage. Just PLEASE include these things in price,rather than "nickle and dimeing" me to death. Website to get boarding pass was confusing."
Pros: "Great price."
Cons: "Seats don't lean back at all.."
Pros: "Not much beyond the price."
Cons: "The crew seemed to be in a collective bad mood that night. The seats were very uncomfortable and did not recline. It was a brand new plane, but, if this is what Frontier is ordering for its future planes, I will go back to choosing other airines."
Pros: "Very Cheap flights, on time, crew was friendly. I was surprised how fast boarding was considering most had carryon bags."
Cons: "Nothing other than the seats were a little tight. Surprises me that there are so many negative reviews, must have not paid attention to details when booking - this is a BUDGET airline folks"
Pros: "Comfortable seats, great staff, easy boarding directions. Overall great flight."
Pros: "Flight was fine."
Cons: "Cost of bags, cost of snacks. Small water. One restroom out in back."
Cons: "My light didn't work so I had to switch seat to read. The crew did NOT come around to ask for drinks or snacks."
Cons: "Cancelled my flight and lost a day with my son."
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "The extra cost for everything including picking your seat"
Pros: "1. Easier to board because much fewer luggage is brought on board. This is because they charge $40 each for the larger carry-ons. The smaller item (fits under the seat) is free. Best way is to check a large bag ($30 when paid in advance), which is cheaper than the carry-on. This is all made very clear on the website. 2. Also, we did not pay extra for a seat assignment, to see what we were given. In both flights, we were given decent seats together. 3. Crew very nice. 4. Very smooth landings."
Cons: "1. The seats don't recline. 2. The tray table is very small (about 4"), so your book or laptop won't fit on it. 3. Seemed to take a long time for the luggage to appear. 4. Frontier doesn't participate in TSA Pre-Check, so you have to go through the long security lines."
Pros: "Nothing. It was crowded and hot. Haven't been that hot in a plane since flying in a Piper without air years ago."
Cons: "Flight was well over 2 hours late getting to Orlando causing me to miss my connecting flight to Brazil. Consequently I'm trying to sleep in a chair in the terminal of MCO because Frontier wouldn't step up to the plate and help with a hotel, let alone pay the $250 it's going to cost me to re-ticket my trip. I can't afford that. God only knows when or if I'll ever reach Brazil. So much for my Dream Vacation. Never, ever do I plan on flying them again."
Cons: "I have never taken a flight where I had to pay to get a seat assigned and then pay a fee for my CARRY ON BAG. The ticket price seemed to be a good deal. All the additional costs made it so that I will likely never fly Frontier again!!"
Cons: "Again, the seats are just ridiculously uncomfortable. My back felt sore and stiff the entire flight and I only rested after taking 5 pain killers at once. Still stiff and sore the following days after the flight! I paid an extra $50 for the best upgrade and the seat doesn't even recline!!! WTF??"
Pros: "My flight was exactly what I would expect: on time, cordial staff, smooth operation and seamless layover."
Cons: "I have not flown Frontier for a long time and do not favor the idea of advertising a set price for the flight but then adding additional charges for seats and luggage (especially carry on). I do believe this borders on deceptive marketing and advertising. By the time I paid for charges on what I expected as necessities, the price for the flight increased by $100. I will take this into account next time I compare airline options."
Pros: "None specific"
Pros: "Easy airport, on time flight. Everyone polite"
Cons: "All the extra charges! Charging lfor a bag?!?! Who travels without taking a bag? Pricing seems deceitful, should just raise price to include bags and seat."
Pros: "Check in person at baggage and person scanning tickets while boarding were very nice."
Cons: "Did not eat any food (slept instead) and flight did not have entertainment"
Pros: "the airplane was the most comfortable I've been on for quite a while...also the crew was extremely friendly and helpful. don't like that Frontier nickels and dimes the customer to death. Would like to have baggage charges not so complicated."
Cons: "My flight went out 1hr and 20 mins. late and no notification so had a very long wait at the airport and person coming to airport to pick me up sat there also... a notification would have allowed me to call her before she left her her and not waste her time sitting in her car waiting"
Pros: "The crew on board was awesome. But the check in agent's in Cincinnati were absolutely rude and need to be better trained. Yes I know they are not employees of Frontier that they are contracted. But it leaves a bad mark on Frontier. The crew on the flight however made up for their rudeness."
Cons: "It'd be nice if I could specify N/A for items that I didn't have, such as food and entertainment."
