Pros: "excellent airlines for such a small customer market....A+"
Cons: "absolutely nothing!!"
Cons: "Boutique air crew is very friendly. Much nicer experience compared to bigger airlines ."
Cons: "They can't find me a alternate flight I've been waiting 8 hours with still nothing"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled and I was not notified until I had already drove to the airport.I had to cancel my flight and reschedule with a different airline from a different airport"
Pros: "I thought the flight was on time and comfortable. The cost of the flight was very reasonable and it beats driving."
Cons: "The flight was supposed to leave out of Cortez at 6am, the pilot showed up at 620am, and we did not depart untill 635am. Because of this, we missed our next flight out of Denver. There was no reason this flight should have been this late. When attempting to talk to boutique air staff at the airport and on the phone there was nothing they could do. 1. Because we "choose" to fly and 2 bc it was bought through a 3rd party. No one was able to help us. Unfortunately our next flight to Omaha only departs every 2 days. The closest they could get us to home was 7hrs away from our car at the airport. It was not frontier fault that we missed our next flight, it was clearly boutique air. The pilot in Cortez was a complete jerk, had no sense of time or urgency. If we are required to show up 90 minutes early, so should the pilot. We were stranded in Denver unless we wanted to buy all new tickets for around $800 or wait 2 days for next flight . I was very mad at boutique and their staff was less than accommodating or understanding. Very poor service. They would not own anything because flight was bought through kayak."
Pros: "Don't have expired foodstuffs"
Cons: "See above Bruh lmao"
Pros: "The actual fight was very good."
Cons: "I tried calling for a shuttle to the terminal for over an hour, and ended up walking in the dark with my luggage. When arriving, the attendant said he had left the phone in the car. That was not so great."
Pros: "What did I like? Everything! Service, price, flight conditions, crew were all wonderful. It felt like taking a private jet and was less expensive for my husband and I to fly round trip than to rent a car to drive from Denver to Durango for a week!"
Pros: "Easy on easy off, why drive"
Pros: "Not many people, even though boutique is more expensive I will use yall every time."
Pros: "I've never traveled in a plane that sat 8 people but I was an exciting experience. Our pilot was excellent and the landings were so smooth. Boarding was a breeze since there were only 3-7 passengers. I would definitely fly with Boutique again."
Pros: "Had to take a Friday flight to Phoenix to drive back a car to Abq. Waited too long to get a ticket, by mid week the big guys were getting up there in price. I heard about BA before so when I noticed their price coming in the lowest in a KAYAK search I had no hesitation going for it! The whole experience was great. The big airlines are taking all the fun out of flying, long lines thru security, you get on the plane thru a tunnel so you don't even get to see the airplane. With BA checking in is 20 mins before flight, no long lines thru security. You just walk to their terminal, check in and walk out to your plane! The plane is comfortable, the pilots are very friendly. I'll definetely fly BA again!"
Pros: "Flight cancelled in Muscle Shoals layover"
Cons: "No one has told me anything, they have to wait on an email is the only reply I've gotten"
Pros: "everything is great"
Pros: "Friendly staff and ease of booking"
Pros: "Friendly crew and staff. Easy check-in and boarding processes. Thanks so much!"
Pros: "The staff were pleasant to work with."
Cons: "Flight was scheduled to depart at 4:30pm and without any weather or mechanical delays the flight is pushed to 6:30pm. Then 7:00pm. Now 8:00pm. And I am still waiting."
Cons: "Only one person to help, delayed because of fog and no explanation, had to call many times to get my bags back"
Pros: "The airport personnel for Boutique are great!"
Cons: "Everything was wonderful!"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly from the front desk to the piolet"
Pros: "Love Boutique air."
Pros: "The staff seemed nice, but pretty confused about what Boutique airlines was up to."
Cons: "I'm a bit confused how this company has stayed in business. I booked this ticket thinking it would be a novel flight to LAX. Heck, I even paid a little more for the ticket. On my way to the airport I got a call saying the flight was going to be delayed by 5 hours. I was just about at the airport so I figured I'd just wait it out. At the airport there was one checkin counter and it was empty. I sat around for 30 minutes until someone came out to help me checkin. Waited at an empty gate for 5 hours wondering if I was in the right area. 9pm came and went and no plane to be seen. The frustrating thing is that there were no updates from the staff throughout the process. I think this is something I've come to take for granted on all the other airlines I've been on. Will I make it to my destination? No idea. Anyways, if you want reliability pick any other airline. If you like having to ask a lot of questions and get a lot of vague answers, Boutique is for you. It's very unfortunate. I really wanted to write a positive review!"
Pros: "Cost and schedule compliance"
Cons: "All was good. You need to have an "na" in your star ratings. "Entertainment " is not appropriate for a flight."
Pros: "Smooth landing and nice people"
Cons: "The set belt light never went off to get up and get a drink or snack"
Cons: "Not knowing anything about the 3 hr delay."
Pros: "The price for this flight considering the convenience of everything compared to a typical commercial flight was amazing. I am very impressed with the service, and will absolutely try to find future flights on Boutique Air!"
Pros: "Everything was excellent!"
Pros: "Boutique conducts business a little bit different from all the major airlines. Checking in and boarding is done very different. They arrange the seating based on the passengers weight. almost if you have chattered your own private jet. Very luxurious and comfortable. Although the plane is small, the takeoff and landing was very smooth. Don't hesitate do business with boutique."
Cons: "The fact that the plane left almost 30 EARLY and the crew wouldn't let me board. Absolute garbage. It's most likely a waste of my time writing this as service was pass poor at best to begin with. I cannot believe this happened, them causing me to miss my flight. I had to sit in this tiny terminal for over five hours and wait for another flight, which was delayed mind you because, well, a crew member was missing. So we left 20 minutes late! This truly made this experience one of a kind, I will never forget to tell all my friends, family, coworkers and blast this all over social media to my contacts. As a disabled veteran, I was truly shocked and completely done with the day when the same crew member showed up so we could boars finally and tells me that I don't look like anything is wrong with me, after reading my wounded warrior project carry on bag. Thank you for the disrespect on top of the hippocracy on top of the worst travel experience ever and Southwest lost my military bags with my uniforms while enroute to a brother in arms funeral service. Thank you for showing how little customers, average Americans mean"
Pros: "This was unique experience on an eight seated plane. Loved the service and absolutely will do it again!!"
Pros: "Staff was very nice and willing to help. My luggage got stuck in TSA check and they had it on the next flight to my destination. Plane was very nice and the pilots were fantastic at not only flying but also in giving flight information"
Cons: "When my luggage arrived the next day to my destination, they called and told me I could come pick it up. however I live a few hours from the airport and asked if they could have it delivered to me asap. Yes, that was approved. The lady in charge of my bag went off work for 3 days and delayed my delivery. she should have asked someone else on staff to do instead of tell me my luggage was on the way."
Pros: "Awesome airline. Polite and very comfortable."
Pros: "All the staff are very helpful and friendly."
Pros: "good staff from gate to gate makes up for any airport problems from being "off brand" e.g., gates not as clearly indicated, not on ARR/DEP boards. Nice seats, I could see headroom problems for those in the 6'3"+ range."
Pros: "It was a quick stop to refuel, and we were immediately brought back into the plane afterward."
Cons: "That we had to go back through TSA screening even though there were only six of us - but that's the TSA and not the airplane's fault."
Pros: "The crew was informative, pleasant, and easy to speak to. Take-off and landing were both VERY SMOOTH for a small 8-passenger plane."
Cons: "We flew with a lot of turbulence so the flight was slightly delayed."
Pros: "Small plane. Fun, new experience! Smooth flight, cool pilots. Never ridden in an 8-seater before! They gave me peanuts when I asked, too."
Cons: "There was an issue with boarding pass printing -- the printer had some problems for a bit, and our agent had some difficulty trouble-shooting the issue. I don't blame her at all -- she got it fixed, and we were only delayed 10 mins or so in the end. To make things perfect, that part of the process would have been full-proof."
Pros: "The flight was short and sweet.chexking in was simple...we just showed our I.d. The crew was friendly and the plane was nice."
Cons: "Nothing really."
Cons: "Unfortunately, the flight did not operate and I ended up driving 700 miles with a fellow stranded passenger. Too bad, because I was really looking forward to flying on a smaller plane for a change. Maybe next time..."
Pros: "I promise I wasn't paid to write this, I am a frequent flyer and a believer in the way Boutique has things set up. The staff was friendly, from the counter workers to the pilots. The whole process was way faster than a larger airliner, granted there is usually a maximum of 8 passengers, but you get on fast and take off quickly! Plus every seat is first class; they rotate to allow more leg room, and recline very nicely! First time flying with them, and last time flying anyone else (if I can help it!)."
Cons: "The airplane is smaller than your usual airline, it's a Pilatus PC-12, so the turbulence is a little more apparent. Beyond that, it is a wonderful airplane!"
Cons: "I had read the previous reviews and decided to ignore them but what I got was even worse The plane was delayed. When it showed up it could not take off because it had a problem we had to wait for 2hrs to be talled that the flight has been cancelled because the faulty part has to come from Denver. If you value your life dont use this airline"
Pros: "The plane itself was new and very quiet (for a turboprop) - didn't even have to break out the earplugs. Crew handed out beverages before hand, nice service for a 45 min flight!"
Pros: "The ease of checking in, boarding and deboarding. The quickness of the flight The friendliness of the staff and crew"
Cons: "The overhead air vent was FREEZING and stayed on until we were in flight. We were not allowed to retrieve our checked luggage directly from the plane, we had to walk (long walk) to the baggage claim and retrieve it there. It would have made the shortness of the flight even better as we would have been able to just walk from our Boutique flight to our connecting flight's check-in window."
Pros: "I loved the intimate feel of flying this airline. Meeting the captain on the Tarmac and getting personalized care like coffee, water, and descriptions of what we are flying over and around was awesome. With such a chill environment and the ability to shoot great photos out of the plane window I really felt like I was flying in my own private jet."
Cons: "Nothing. Nothing at all. We even landed early."
Pros: "They escorted us through TSA- super convenient"
Cons: "Trip departure point was changed at the last minute, but other than that it was a very enjoyable trip."
Pros: "Leg room Atmosphere"
Pros: "Great staff, great pilots! Better than ANY commercial airline that I've ever traveled on!!!!!!!!!!"
Cons: "I would love to see you open to more airports. You guys are awesome!"
Cons: "Despite one piece of carry on per passenger they run out of overhead space. The boarding process is unbelievably slow. Far too many with no apparent reason to pre-board are allowed to pre-board . Wanted to buy food were nearly out of any of the choices by row 34 so no food 5:36 minute flight ridiculously poor planning in my opinion. Very little leg room as configured."
Pros: "Crew was very accommodating"
Cons: "More seating space"
Cons: "Seating very tight. Difficult to get in and out, or to get your things from under the seat."
Pros: "Comfort and space"
Pros: "They were effective at boarding"
Cons: "My display monitor didn’t work"
Cons: "Stuck me with a middle seat even though I fly frequently On United. In fact they gave me a special recognition on an earlier flight which was ridiculous as well because it was just a piece of paper that I had to go up to the podium to collect"
Pros: "I love having only 2 seats on each side."
Cons: "We boarded the same time as another flight. we used the same gate door, announcements were being made by both gate attendants and 1 mistakenly used our flight information. There were several passengers who were confused! Maybe it's an LAX issue?"
Cons: "Unfortunately flight was delayed for 2 hours on top of a 3h42m layover"
Cons: "I never flew to Phoenix from Washington. I was held over at DCA for the night so I lost a full day of my vacation! Had to fly to Chicago and then to Phoenix. Was a total pain!!!"
Pros: "The nice crew"
Cons: "I wish if there was delay, we could do it at the gate not on the tarmac."
Cons: "This flight was horrible. I upgraded my seat and paid extra for a premium economy and it was still crowded. There was gum or candy stuck to the floor right were I was supposed to stash my carry on. I pointed it out to the flight attendant and his response was "so you can't put your bag there?" I asked him if he would ruin his bag and put it there and he said "well, you don't know me." What? I had to worry the whole flight about putting my foot on that gooey mess. What did I get for my extra money? Aggravation."
Pros: "Again expectation can get in the way. And of course the airline needs for flights to be as full as possible. In order to be profitable in the long run. We all want them to be able to stay in business"
Cons: "Same point - the point was full and I’ve already clarified that ."
Pros: "Boarding process was smooth."
Cons: "The space between seats was very uncomfortable. I have never felt so crowded in a plane seat and would reconsider United in the future for that reason."
Pros: "crew was nice"
Cons: "I feel like airlines are becoming like used cars salesmen. High price ticket, then 25$ to check a bag, they give you direct tv as a preview and then make you pay to watch TV, pay for internet, want something other then pretzels, you have to pay for that too. Next up you will charge for our air conditioners to work which by the way they didn't. I have never been so uncomfortable on a flight in my life. Couldn't even bend down to get something under my seat because of the lack of space between rows. Also the air conditioner was extremely warm and the pressure of the air did not reach the seat. I was sticking to the chair because it was so warm. It just sucks that air travel has gone the way of every other industry that values quantity over quality."
Cons: "We’re about to take off, had to go back to the gate due to poor inspections, then they had to move us to another plane and couldn’t be less effective. Gave everyone the wrong gate twice, it was ridiculous. Someone at United should hire a six sigma trainer to teach employees about efficiency."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and courteous."
Cons: "First the plane arrived late so we could not board at our scheduled time. Then when the plane arrived they said we could not used that plane. Then we had to wait 3 hours before we could get another plane. The new plane was also on the other end of the airport. This was a challenge while traveling with my mother who requires assistance."
Cons: "Gate agent not very helpful when my wife and I were assigned separate seats."
Pros: "The landing was great!"
Cons: "I paid for an upgrade on a seat and my passenger and I were told that we were entitled to free food and bottomless drinks with my payment, once on the plane I was told that payment was just for the seat. But she the attendant told me another passenger said the same thing. The only difference was the boarding agent told them 179.00 to change seats. She suggested I bring it up to United, which I will do."
Pros: "Flight was canceled, and the crew gave little information about next steps. When asked how to rebook, they said it would be emailed, except it never was."
Pros: "The staff was very nice."
Cons: "I purchased two tickets and we weren't given seats next to each other."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Boarding takes too long"
Cons: "Couldn't get the tv to turn off, was making me feel nauseous. Seats don't acutally lean back to a comfortable level."
Pros: "Good crew, pleasant flight"
Cons: "Plane boarded front to back...never makes sense to me why they aren't boarded back to front. Seats could be more comfortable since they only recline a couple inches"
Cons: "Waiting in Newark airport for passport, custom and security check too long, almost missed next flight. After boarded waited almost 1 hour in a plane to take off."
Cons: "It was delayed as the incoming crew were late and I reached Phoenix almost at midnight which was inconvenient"
Cons: "This airline is so beyond awful. American has the most janky planes, uncomfortable seats, and worst service on the plane. I had to beg the flight attendant to get me a wine because I was asleep when they came by and missed them by not even a half hour... She acted like it was so hard and it took asking 4 times and finally just asking another person. I was so annoyed. They also have shitty food selections per usual. Who chooses those snack items?! They clearly have no taste. I was miserable the whole flight. I usually am not a miserable traveler so this isn't just me being negative, I seriously may write one review every few months, only if something is really good or really bad. The fact that I'm even taking the time to write this says a lot!!!"
Pros: "The Flight attendants were nice."
Cons: "The airport was horrible. Hard to get to the C concourse. "train" is TOO SMALL. It barely fits 10 in each car. International transfer of bags was Horrible, and very far apart from where you get the bags. Poorly planned or not at all planned. We barely had time to make the flight with 1 1/2 hours to transfer and would have missed our flight if it wasn't for a trolley driver who took us from security to the gate. There is no power at the seats. The plane is old and seats were very uncomfortable. Yeah, this was the worst flight."
Pros: "Zero leg room! That actually was surprising as most other airlines have a lot more legroom. In flight entertainment was also lacking. Doesn't make sense to pay $7.99 for a 2.5hr flight. A lot of other airlines offer some sort of complimentary in flight entertainment. Also the luggage didn't start coming out for at least 30 mins of waiting at baggage claim. Not the worst experience I've had flying but far from being a good experience. It probably isn't worth flying united unless it's 1st class. But even they had to wait 30+mins for luggage!"
Cons: "I paid for something and I expected to get it. For most of my trip I sat business class but on my flight back to phx from Houston not only did I get an economy seat but I also got put on the last group to board. I can't help but feel a bit cheated here."
Pros: "My flight was long but the crew was nice, beverage service was prompt . It was a good flight."
Cons: "By no fault of really anyone... the gentleman next to me was very tall and big. He was touching me throughout the trip while he was working on some papers. He looked uncomfortable."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly, very professional. The plan was very clean (it helps being new!)."
Cons: "I'm 6'3" , I wouldn't say this was United's fault but the truncated seat size is endemic to the entire industry. But It was SO CRAMPED."
Pros: "WAS SO PACKED IN IT WAS DIFFICULT TO LIKE ANYTHING. Seats should come with a safety warning ."
Cons: "ROCK HARD THIN BACK SEATS. I am average size and had no room- large people next to me spilled over into my seat. I had aisle seat and space under seat was size of average laptop leaving no room for feet. This would be ok for an hour- three and a half is ridiculous."
Pros: "I felt comfortable. Staff was great."
Cons: "The cracker and cheese box. The snack wasn't worth the money."
Pros: "I like that we finally made it!! 130a.m."
Cons: "This by far is the worst flight I have ever been on! It's starts off delayed... Fine! They get us on board the plane and we sit and sit without much info being given to ppl on flight! Then we are told there are mechanical issues and it won't b long before we leave... Half hrs goes by and they tell us it will be longer so for us to exit the plane.... Which turned into a 45min wait to finally tell us that we were waiting now on a new pilot to fly in from where ever he was to finally take over our flight , which didn't leave ORD till 1230.... Which was supposed to had left ORD at 930.... We finally get to PHX at 130 a.m. When were supposed to originally land n PHX at 930 mountain time! After all of this confusion and just bad manangement of time... We didn't get any apologies any kinda of compensation for time lost... Just a have a gud day! I'm pissed will Never fly with United Airlines and will tell others to also not fly United!"
Pros: "Nothing. The gate agent didn't really know how kayak works when it comes to hacker flights.Told me to call customer service. Customer service does not give you the option to speak to representatives. The phone system just loops around with out giving any options for to speak to a person. After I was on the phone with an agent he told me my money would be refunded. I have been charged two flights and I'm still sitting at home."
Cons: "Kayak did not confirm my seat. Was not able to get a flight. Called customer service and they told me to rebook. My card was charged twice. The airplane had faulted hardware. Waited in line for 2 hours to get a different flight. All flights to Phoenix were full. Didn't make the standby list. Couldn't make the rebook flight. Worst day ever Now, No one can give me a refund. mind you I took a day off from work this was a last minute. The reason this trip was so important to me is because my grandma is in the ICU. I hardly ever complain about any customer service experience. Overall to get a hold of customer service is awful. Now I have to spend more money and I have to drive 12hours."
Pros: "Boarding started early and went very quickly. Seats were new and a leather type material , which is an improvement from old fabric seats. Nice headrests you could bend to support your head. Loved the new United app I downloaded for free which allowed me to watch movies and tv shows on my phone. We arrived at our destination 30 minutes early, which was a plus. Staff was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "They overbooked my flight and almost didn't let me on the plane even though I bought my ticket months ago! The only reason I got on is because some people didn't show up."
Pros: "The crew was excellent."
Cons: "Our luggage got left behind at Newark airport, this is a recurring issue. Trying to enjoy a vacation without your luggage is a bit of a challenge."
Pros: "In spite of late the flight reached before time."
Cons: "though I booked 8 months before yet I was given the last seat. I was rally sad."
Pros: "Seemed to be a newer plane, and there was in-seat entertainment at each seat. Mine didn't work, though."
Cons: "United has to have the smallest seats of any carrier. There couldn't have been more than three inches between my seat and the seat in front of me. The guy in the middle seat wasn't a large guy, yet he poured over into my space. It's insanely small."
Pros: "Everything was fine once I got on board the aircraft"
Cons: "Once again I had to see an agent to get a seat assignment on a 30 min layover. I though I got an upgraded seat but instead they gave me the wrong boarding pass. Same last name different first name so I had to wait till it got figured out and then be the last person to board so once again I couldn't find a place for my bag. Probably one of the worse flying experience I've had in a while"
Pros: "The jet was excellent. The boarding was easy and organized. The flight crew was very polite and professional. Everything went in a timely manner......."
Cons: "United overbooked by 5 passengers and that's not an acceptable practice. It's not fair to those who pay then get bumped off the flight..... This is terrible and needs to be stopped."
Cons: "Rows 20 to the back of the plane didn't get a beverage. Slow moving attendant. I was thirsty."
Pros: "The Crew was nice and attentive"
Cons: "Boarding was unpleasant I had to wait so long to be seated because no wheelchair was available then I had to sit in the rear of the plane I'm physically disabled I had no leg room and my knees were in pain the whole flight then after landing I had to wait 20 to 25 minutes to get off the plane I'm still recovering from that but keep the attendance they were the highlight of my experience"
Pros: "The only thing I have to say that is positive is that it was relatively easy to change my flight date and time in the United app once my original flight had been cancelled. The app was the only thing that helped me understand what was going on during the constant time and gait changes throughout the day."
Cons: "This airline is terrible. First we were told that the flight would be delayed 1 hour and 40 minutes. We were supposed to leave at 2139 from IAH to PHX. They changed the departure to 2309 due to "mechanical failure" of one of the aircrafts. We were told a plane was coming and that we were just waiting for another flight to Albuquerque that was delayed before us to leave the gait. Long after that first delayed flight left passengers for PHX were delayed 3 more times which ended in the final tenative departure time being 0145. We were told at 0115 to sit tight and wait because the plane was now here but the crew was still in route. Shortly after this promise, the crew showed up and everything seemed to be ready for us to board. Another 30 minutes went by and they announced that the flight was cancelled. United airlines had used up over 4 hours of changing gaits and times only to end up cancelling the entire flight. They did not offer any explanation for this nor were they the least sympathetic to the travelers who have all paid to be on that flight. The customer service was disgraceful and did not offer any type of help on reimbursement, hotel, cabs, or compensation for this."
Pros: "I love United. They're now my go to airline. I love the pet friendliness as well as every employee through United I met today from the bdl check in crew , to especially the flight crew on flight558 iAd to phx who I believe was from Houston and their Texas roots truly shined. Every crew member was Sooo attentive professional Cleanly pleasant and always smiling and happy to come around. Other crews could learn from this crew please take notice !!! I have never been so impressed (and I am a frequent flyer )"
Cons: "Flight tracker wouldn't work on screen or on phone disappointing"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "passengers being physically sick next.to me"
Pros: "Flight price."
Cons: "The service, accommodations, cleanliness, organization from the airline (multiple delays and two gate changes), comfort of seats, & entertainment options were all undesirable. I tend to only fly United when I have no other options. This experience was exactly what I expected from the airline. However, I was traveling with my mother this trip and wish I would've spent the money to fly a different airline."
