It was a redeye flight, so there's not much that can be done to make it "better" per se. The crew is respectful of passengers trying to sleep, the lights remain low and announcements to a minimum. The amount of in-flight entertainment and charging ports available at each seat means I can easily find something to watch/listen to until I fall asleep, and my devices will be charged and ready to go when I reach my destination in the morning!
Cons: "The tray table was very dirty when I put it down. I brought my own wipes but that was pretty bad."
Cons: "Loved the sleep pack, you guys rock!"
Pros: "It is the first time that a flight is delayed so much in the times that I have traveled in these last two years. But to catch the rest everything else was excellent. Jorge"
Cons: "COMUNICATION. I am appalled by the service I received between Orlando and Ponce. My flight was schedule to take over around 11ish last night it got delayed for after 3 am. Coming from Worcester and arriving in Orlando at 7 pm I was appalled. I was finally switched to an early flight and I was also promised that my luggage would arrived with me and only one baggage arrived. In Ponce I was lectured by Roberto regarding missing luggage while standing in there ready to cry."
Pros: "The crew and pilot were awesome! Very friendly! Nodding was pretty quick."
Cons: "It was an older plane. WiFi Didn’t work. But not a huge deal. It would be nice if they ask you to check at the gate due to overhead space if they could have those bags come out first from the baggage claim."
Cons: "Maintain their planes, we were delayed more than 3 hours and this was such a poor way to handle it."
Pros: "The crew was really professional and I liked a lot of leg space."
Pros: "TAP Portugal was great."
Cons: "Update delays earlier. There was no plane at the gate. We knew it would be delayed especially with the weather in Denver. Honesty earlier."
Pros: "The crew members were polite and courteous, and the flight was ahead of schedule in arriving."
Cons: "The cabin could have been a bit cleaner."
Pros: "On time boarding and departure Arrival at destination a lot earlier than expected Great service on the plane Pleasant crew members"
Pros: "Friendly service. Left on time and arrived early."
Cons: "delayed by 2.5 hours"
Pros: "The flight was late into Denver but the crew did a great job turning the flight around and getting us to our destination on time."
Pros: "JetBlue is by far the best airline I’ve flown. Love them!"
Pros: "Seat was spacious and comfortable"
Cons: "The flight was nearly an hour delayed and the only way to talk to someone until right before the plane arrived was to go back to the ticket counter (and go back through security)."
Pros: "Appreciated the second round of water"
Pros: "JetBlue provided ear plugs and a sleep mask. I honestly slept most of the trip. Red eyes are awful, but JetBlue made it bearable."
Cons: "Couldn't turn brightness down on headrest monitor. Both of the other screens were able to crank brightness down to off"
Pros: "Comfortable seats, snacks, good price, nice & helpful were all the flight attendants and persons at the counter. Flight was 20 min late arriving at Denver, but our pilot got us to Boston on time-much appreciated. Free WiFi was great.seats and the next plane (my plane)o not"
Cons: "Could have taken an earlier flight from Boston to DCA, but there was $75 change fee even though the plane had lots of seats. But I do not hold this against JetBlue."
Pros: "The crew were very nice and respectable and did their job as professionals! We landed on time and the disembarkation was smooth, with no problems!"
Cons: "The person on my right (I was in the middle), wasn't very considerate! He hogged both arm rest, had one of his feet on a personal bag (I had in front of me) and was just plan rude and impolite as a passenger!"
Cons: "JetBlue delays empty flights until Full to Pomce or From Ponce. Dice people who usually travel are old person is easily managed to feed them with mechanical problems or some other excuse. This route back or forth only works on time in high season, which usually are the common holidays of the year, other than this skip it, the delays turns flight into a nightmare pushing the wait, and travel, as a direct flight to Los Angles leaving form San Juan or a total hour of 10+"
Pros: "Extra room seat was great. Crew was nice. Boarding was easy. Lots of leg room. Appreciate mask and overnight kit for sure."
Cons: "Flight was very cold."
Pros: "New plan was clean, good staff, pilot did great landing in storm"
Cons: "Even in an additional room seat, the seat cushion itself was very uncomfortable. The tracker map wasn’t working"
Pros: "Liked eye mask"
Cons: "Couldn’t recline seat"
Pros: "The crew was awesome. Christina went above and beyond"
Cons: "Every flight by JetBlue out of Denver to Boston has had a problem. Been canceled and or delayed Everytime. This time was delayed 30 mins then another 30 mins then the delay was retracted via email but when I arrived to the airport the delay was still in effect. Ended up being delayed 20 mins but it was chaotic and frustrating with no apologies"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Need improve about the food"
Pros: "No food served only soft drinks and chips"
Pros: "The flight and crew were totally fine. I slept the whole time."
Cons: "There was not a single JetBlue employee at the Denver airport until exactly 2 hours before the flight. There were many passengers (upwards of 20 and many with small children) waiting around to check their bags and unable to access the food/bathroom/go through security. Everyone was confused and upset. While I understand that there are no flights for several hours prior to the late-night flight I was on, that does not mean that there is no need for an employee presence. Many people arrived multiple hours early because the most common destinations for Denver travelers are the mountain ski towns and the last departures of the shuttles that run from the mountains to the airport leave at 3:00pm. Therefore a large number of passengers arrive by 6:00pm for midnight flights and are left waiting in the check-in area until 10:00pm. The situation was made worse by the poor communication--there were signs saying that checkin was open only from 8:00am-11:00am, which left everyone very confused, given that we were on evening flights. There were many angry people sitting on the floor around the JetBlue counter."
Cons: "Flight was late taking off from Denver."
Pros: "The staff was super friendly and lively even though it was midnight. The flight was so smooth I slept through the landing"
Pros: "On time, smooth boarding process, good cabin service."
Pros: "The convenience of landing and being so close to home. Only wished there were more flights avail with better times."
Cons: "1) The time of this flight is a bit much. I understand that it is close to my home but I know if Jet Blue adds 1 or 2 more flights, they would totally get booked up. The leaving JFK at almost midnight and then the time difference is horrible. 2)This flight had a child that got sick and we were delayed about 40-45 mins. Totally worth it but it made for an even harder time getting in at almost 630am PR time. 3) The turbulence was horrible. We were warned but so many customers were getting sick. Its was unpleasant to say the least."
Cons: "Airlines lost my baggage took 3 days to finally receive all of my luggage"
Pros: "Always a winner. We had regular seats, not extra legroom and they really are roomier than other airlines. Love the snacks and the little bottle of water that I can take with me after the flight. Love that wifi is free and available"
Pros: "Staff, seat size"
Cons: "It was brutally hot, not just for myself but the whole row. The air vents did not work."
Pros: "Comfortable seats. For cheap seats."
Pros: "Everyone was friendly and very helpful"
Pros: "Very courteous gate staff and flight crew"
Cons: "The Denver/JFK leg was 3.5 hours late I had to rush from Terminal 5 to Terminal 7 at JFK and nearly missed the second flight"
Pros: "Seats were comfy."
Cons: "Delayed 2 hours, crew handled it pretty unprofessionally. Once on the flight from Denver to Boston, the crew were rude to me every time they spoke to me. They repeatedly bumped into me without apology and repeatedly told me to do things I had already done like put my seat up and buckle my seat belt (but strangely didn't do the same to the older couple next to me that did have their belts unbuckled). The computer screens barely worked and the map kept flashing to advertisements telling me not to watch the map. I literally just wanted to watch the map. I would not fly jet blue again because of this experience"
Pros: "Great entertainment and service. Great leg room too."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats, hard to sleep in."
Cons: "Headphone jack was missing completely. Unable to use entertainment"
Pros: "Leg room wa nice. XM radio is great"
Cons: "No issues."
Pros: "Good choice of snacks for free. Leg room. Easy landing. Good choice of TV and movies."
Cons: "No complaints. One of the flight attendants seemed kind of annoyed, and put off by any request anybody made."
Pros: "I enjoyed the movie when it was on! I enjoyed the leg room as well! The plane was nice and new and I felt safe!"
Cons: "The flight was delayed, and I tried to switch flights to get on with my family since the flight was delayed and they wanted to charge me $600. The flight was cold so I purchased a blanket."
Pros: "Boarding seemed to be pretty efficient, especially compared to my most recent experiences on American. Flight was smooth (of course, airline doesn't have much to do with that). Got to my destination along with my luggage. Did not feel cramped on the plane and I was in a regular seat. Did not feel like I had to spend through the nose to just have a passable experience."
Cons: "Flight was almost 2 hours delayed. Plane felt a little shabby. Sometimes I found it hard to understand the flight attendant who did most of the announcements - she had an accent, which would have been fine, except that she either spoke too fast, or was mumbling. All that together, made it hard to understand her. Pilots never spoke to us. Not once."
Felt safe. No bathroom lines since many toilets are located throughout the plane. Passengers did great at following the rules.
Pilots found a smooth flight path! Wowza!!
Cons: "Delta.... they’rrrrrr Grrrreaaate!"
Pros: "Mal servicio; compre un tickets que no permitía escoger los asientos y nos seleccionó la última fila en cada vuelo. La diferencia entre ser priority y regula es bien marcada"
Cons: "Mejor trato a todo pasajero; se reconoce las ventajas de estar en primera clase pero el servicio debe ser excelente"
Pros: "The crew was not overly friendly"
Pros: "Most of the crew was great with the exception of curbside check-in in Denver."
Cons: "Curbside needs to stop chasing cash tips and do their jobs. If they focused on that tips would be easy to come by. The curbside attendant that took my bag didn’t even bother to check my id. He asked me my name and asked where my destination was. I told him Cincinnati as a layover then LaGuardia where he said that was wrong. He then proceeded to print a boarding pass that wasn’t mine and load my bag into the conveyor. Not 5 mins go by when I realize what happened I wound up having to go to special services to rectify the situation. Which ultimately consisted of me waiting another hour in LaGuardia to get my bag. Please delta have these curbside handlers actually want to do their job and stop chasing cash tips."
Pros: "Crew was very pleasant. Boarding and deplaning was smooth and easy!"
Cons: "Idk terrible flight experience with delta"
Pros: "I think Delta is upping its game, and I’m pleased to see that. Almonds for snacks, phone info about the state of your checked bags—good stuff."
Cons: "Of course the seat was not “super comfortable,” but whe you pick Economy, you know that."
Pros: "Availability of WiFi, a charging port and media options puts Delta a step (or two) ahead of their competitors. The professionalism of the crew, as well as the complimentary food/beverage options are also excellent."
Cons: "Not the airlines fault, but my 6’4” frame doesn’t fit very well in a middle main cabin seat."
Pros: "Flight left on time and landed on time"
Cons: "In the last months I have travel 3 times , this is the first with Delta. I can say it has been the best experience I had. Good entertainment, the access to texting and the variety of snacks make superior this airline."
Pros: "Comfort + was nice."
Cons: "Had a middle seat between two other men. I was given my seat by the gate. It would have been nice if they placed my more strategically. That might be asking too much but seems reasonable."
Pros: "Crew was very fast but not enough during boarding and people had brought oversized carry on luggage to the gate requiring stowing. We had checked a carry-on at check in and paid $30 while several people got theirs stowed for free which seemed unfair."
Cons: "The charging for checked luggage has created a situation that was unfair for all travellers and ultimately made the plane’s departure late. This policy drives people to bring too much luggage into the cabin, putting at risk the safety of others and delays."
Pros: "The friendliness of the passengers and most of the crew."
Cons: "One of the younger female flight attendants was rude . She was collecting trash and took my neighbor’s (aisle seat) trash but wouldn’t take mine. I tapped her elbow to show that I had trash, she looked at me but didn’t take it. She returned and still refused until I exclaimed. She rolled her eyes."
Cons: "Choice of healthier snack"
Cons: "Cabin was cold enough to store meat. Entertainment system was poor at best. And, of course, the seats were too small and uncomfortable. Time to start looking at other airlines."
Pros: "Good airframe."
Cons: "3+ hours delayed; didn't arrive until 3AM."
Cons: "Seats are so small. Flight was delayed."
Cons: "Couldn't believe the flight attendant walked around with a tray of snacks and bananas. When I asked for the banana, she said, "Oh I'm sorry, those are for First Class only". Really?"
Cons: "I bought a ticket thinking i bought it through kayak but I actually bought a ticket through a third party in India. Where no one spoke good English. I called the agency to find out if I needed a Visa for my visit to Australia and the told me no. So when I showed up to the airport I didn’t have the right documents and I MISSED MY FLIGHT. Also the wouldn’t just change my flight and charge me the change flight fee. They cancelled my flight entirely and made me buy a whole new ticket!!! Worst flight experience I’ve ever had and this is not my first time flying to Australia or out of country."
Cons: "I was flying standby. I checked the list on line and my name was number 5. I get to the gate and there’s just a handful of customers. The agent said there was enough seats for the standbys I wait and wait for my name to be called but no luck. My name wasn’t cleared yet. Finally I was the next to last one to get a seat. The gate agent who didn’t ask for my name tells me I was all the down at the bottom of the list. While I am glad that I got on I wish I knew what method is use to get your name on the stand by list?"
Cons: "The seats were in bad condition, I was surprised as Delta usually has well cared for interior and exterior airplanes."
Pros: "The flight attendants were all helpful and pleasant. The seats were comfortable. We were provided with plenty of liquids."
Cons: "The landing was pretty tough and we took off almost a half hour late."
Pros: "Very friendly gate attendants helped us fix the problem that our frequent flyer number had not been entered on the boarding pass. This may have been because of the booking co., Just Fly."
Cons: "Would have liked more seat options, like when I book on Delta's website. Didn't have enough advance warning."
Pros: "Although our flight was fully booked. The crewmembers on this flight was professional, friendly and efficient. We boarded quickly and took off on time. We even arrived ahead of schedule. Each passenger was given free headphones and complimentary beverages and snacks. I love Delta they are a cut above the rest. They are constantly striving to put the customers needs and wants top priority"
Cons: "Tight seats need more legroom"
Pros: "Food and entertainment was good"
Cons: "The bathroom I used was disgusting."
Pros: "Check in Denver super helpful Gate staff hustled to turn around flight Flight crew excellent"
Cons: "Flight delayed, almost missed international connections"
Cons: "Frontier canceled the flight. Delta delayed the flight that I rescheduled. One of the worst traveling experiences I have had in a long time. My day started at 3:30am. I’m just now going to my hotel at 12:40 am"
Cons: "Was unclear which zone was boarding. Legroom was comprised when passenger in immediate row ahead reclined seat early in flight."
Pros: "The fact that there was a screen for movie selections and a charging port for my phone and the flight attendants were super nice"
Pros: "Comfortable seats. Good entertainment"
Cons: "Going to Denver was delayed and now return trip delayed We were give 3 separate reasons. Poor communication. Just telling me a flight will be delayed is not communication. Lack of a free snack was disappointing. May have to rethink flying Delta next time."
Pros: "Giid free sandwixh. Very good entertainment system. Good seats."
Cons: "Poor Delta DEN counter agent experience. Name on ticket didnt match Delta profile name nor TSA [rofile name. Delta counter agent would do nothing, except blame TSA. Would not check ticket name vs profile name. Happened two consecutive flights. Flight tomorrow morning has no TSA Pre clearance on boarding pass. This will be three consecutive flights. Also seated me next to a person who needed 2 seats to himself. Please never seat me next to a passenger who cannot fit in their own seat. I am switching to SWA."
Cons: "The crew forgot to turn the heater on in -3°F creating a situation where the lavatory water lines froze. This caused a two hour delay which made me miss the second leg. Because I missed the second leg I was put on the very last flight out of ATL and got to spend Xmas eve in the airport."
Pros: "On two of the legs of the trip they notice I was a tall person with long legs and upgraded me to seats with more leg room!! I didn't even ask. Thank you."
Cons: "On the way back there were open seats with extra leg room and I asked the gate attendant if it was possible to switch my seat to one with more room and they said they only could if I paid extra."
Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "The Entertainment sucked. Again I was sitting in comfort class which in theory should buy you more comfort and better entertainment. There was a ton of movies from the 90s and the same movie selection from about 6 months ago when I traveled with them. Also, what is going on, with having to use your own cell phone to watch movies on the plane? Whatever happened to the screens in the backseat of the front seat? I ended up with neck pain from trying to watch a movie on my phone. Delta has become very cheap. It is going into some serious decline."
Cons: "Let me just say that I’m a loyal Delta costumer until now. The flight attendants (the two women) were an absolute nightmare. They were so rude and condescending. I was carrying with me my service dog and a bag containing an expensive medication (it couldn’t go on the top bin). Despite being in the comfort class and having the seat next to me empty, we were tight for space. The flight attendants were unreasonable and forced me to put my medication on the top bin despite the fact I had told them it was extremely delicate, that it that to go upright, and that I needed to keep it with me. They did not listen and pressured me into giving them the medication. The medication could have easily gotten broken. Thankfully it didn’t but this is no way to treat a human being."
Pros: "Entertainment system is awesome and similar to what I usually see only on international flights."
Pros: "Ran smoothly, typical flight, everything was as to be expected. Everyone was polite and courteous."
Cons: "Tight seats, boarding process was a bit lengthy, and we hit some turbulence (obviously beyond anyone's control). The pilot and crew handled it well."
Pros: "Most comfortable flight I have taken in some time. Spacious seat, power, good entertaiment, attentive flight crew. On time. Not usually a Delta flier, but times and destination made Delta the choice. Turns out a great choice."
Pros: "Friendly Staff"
Cons: "Check in was very hectic due to limited staff and getting bumped by the red carpet flyers. Boarding is always a little congested due to the lines. Better snacks please!!"
Pros: "The flight left on time and we got in 15 minutes before the scheduled time. Awesome service from gate to gate."
Cons: "I didn't like that I had to pay for my bags and still purchase food on plane. The price for ticket is already overpriced to begin with. Fuel is cheaper, the planes burn less fuel due to updated design and still the tickets are three times the cost of five years ago. No one should have to pay for bags period. Show that you really care."
Cons: "I fly Delta quite often, and am usually pleased with their service, but the morning of June 23 was terrible. I got to the airport in Denver at 5:30 am for a 7:30 am flight to Atlanta, and the line to check a bag was about 40 people long. I waited 55minutes to check my bag, as they kept moving the ski priority people, and people in danger of missing their flight, to the head of the line. There were obviously not enough Delta workers on staff to process all the flights at that time."
Pros: "The cabin crew serving the main cabin were exceptional. They were efficient, kind and FUN. We were an hour late leaving and 2/3 of the plane was worried about tight connections. They handled it with grace giving each person their departing gate and asking everyone to let a gentleman off with a 10 minute connection. They made the flight memorably enjoyable."
Cons: "Being an hour late isn't ideal and I understand that it wasn't their fault (the plane was late arriving into Denver. Those things happen. They still goto people to Detroit in time to make connections--barely."
Cons: "I drove 5 hours to get to the airport and unfortunately ended up delayed because of traffic and slow shuttles from parking. I arrived 1 hour before the flight, but security was so slow I didn't get to the gat until 10 minutes before arrival. There were no gate agents present and despite banging on the gateway door and other Delta agents at the adjacent gate, no one helped me. I can only surmise that they had already given away our seats, which were award tickets, GAINED BY BEING A LOYAL DELTA CUSTOMER. The gate agents were unapologetic and useless at rebooking, and I bought a ticket from Southwest instead. As i was trying to get to my sister's wedding, and repeatedly told the agents this, their behavior was particularly abominable. DELTA, YOU'VE LOST A LOYAL CUSTOMER."
Cons: "Seats too close - I'm not that tall and my knees were jammed against the seat in front of me."
Pros: "Was able to get on a flight after ours was cancelled. Delta was in scramble mode and their gate staff worked hard ot deal with a frustrated flying populaiton"
Cons: "After paying for first class round trip airfare, we were given seats in coach in the rear of the plane, in spite of empty seats (plenty of them) in first class and economy comfort."
For a delayed flight, and one that most choose because of the amenities, no one apologized for the lack of amenities. A simple, “we are truly sorry” announced to everyone would have gone miles. Instead, the crew kept trying to almost conceal the total lack of available entertainment and even feign like it might “sort of work” until the last minute. I was traveling with my life partner, who intended upon and did work the whole flight (despite zero internet, even for the little time avail that we are aware of when traveling to/from PR), but also with a just turned 6 year old who had been looking forward to using “his own” screen for the last 2 weeks. Underwhelming to say the least. The crew’s apathy didn’t help.
Pros: "Yes made sure mask was in place"
Pros: "Most people were so relaxed and pretty easy going about the whole thing"
Pros: "Flight was short"
Cons: "Could have not delayed the flight 3 times."
Pros: "Nothing extraordinary, just solid positive experience from checking in on my phone thtough disembarking"
Cons: "I like the convenience of the built-in multifunctional screens (like on Alaska flights) that AA are lacking"
Pros: "We didn’t crash and die. That’s the only positive."
Cons: "Before we boarded I listened to a couple described how they always went ahead in line at boarding because no one ever stopped them. They described how they waited until group 3 was called and then went right through. While we were waiting, we watched them do it again. If you need to cram people into tiny spaces to be profitable, then you cannot allow them to make it worse by putting back their seats. I spent 90 minutes with a seat back jammed into my chest. We were ignored when handing out snacks, probably because we were invisible behind the seats pushed in our faces. It was one of the most miserable flights I’ve experienced."
Cons: "Crew was not attentive. Temperature was cold."
Cons: "You were out of earphones"
Pros: "We were allowed to board early with my father, who is disabled."
Cons: "Denver airport was a nightmare with my disabled father. We were given a “wheelchair” but no escort through a nightmarish security scene. Airport is terribly designed, lacking clear signage and navigation. TSA was a disaster and no one seemed remotely concerned about my father’s comfort or needs."
Cons: "The crew, could have paid attention to their guest. It was terrible, this flight reminds me how much I enjoy flying Southwest, instead of American Airlines. The only reason that I flew this airline, was because It was free with Points"
Pros: "Captain asked passengers not making close connections to allow passengers with connections to deplane first was very helpful."
Cons: "Flight left late and arrived late making my connection in Philadelphia for a flight to Budapest a very close call."
Pros: "Crew helped us find new seats on board."
Cons: "American Airlines changed our seats after ticket purchase so that we were not sitting together. We chose seats at check-in in San Francisco so that we could sit together. When we landed in Miami we discovered our seats had been changed yet again and we were seated in different rows, middle seat!"
Pros: "Flight attendants were very good."
Cons: "Pilots need to do a better job of communicating delays. Especially the ones piloting this particular flight."
Cons: "The flight was delayed which caused us to miss our flight in London our family was delayed for 12 hours"
Cons: "We are delayed 7.5 hours dues to mechanical issues with our plane and told we would have to wait or book another flight the following day. American Airlines sucks!!!!"
Cons: "Boarding crew was not very polite. You can get the same message across with out being rude. Just not necessary."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Seats that worked"
Pros: "Time of flight"
Cons: "Aircraft had no screen, old, uncomfortable"
Pros: "Good is that they sent you to Finnair to correct AA created break in service...why would they pay for it? AA is just an operator per itinerary! Why would you care if ppl get help with connections!"
Cons: "Checked in online on Finnair and automatically for the second connecting flight...and not the first -AA. So, had to check-in again for the first flight at the terminal. Board passes were printed 2 out of 3 by AA and both had errors - wrong gate for the first flight and no boarding info for the second connecting flight - just blank! AA did not provide connecting info until I found an unoccupied employee at the terminal and customer service lines were about 20 people in 2 locations I went to. The connecting info should be in the itinerary they said at customer service...nope, it was not there either!"
Cons: "Dallas to San Juan San Juan Dallas American Airlines has the worst seat of any airline flown by us fare almost 2000 dollars for round trip and the seat is small hard uncomfortable even for a short flight this is no business class!!"
Pros: "Good movie selection, there’s new titles available to see and it’s perfect for flight time from Denver to Dallas"
Pros: "Crew was nice and friendly. Pilots flew great. We arrived a few mins early as well."
Cons: "On the way to Denver from Miami we were on a nice new AA plane with TV entertainment, movies, power, and comfortable seats. On the way from Denver to Miami we were on an old plane with no entertainment and old uncomfortable seats. If this is going to be the case, charge me less up front as well. My daughter had a terrible time for a 4 hour flight."
Cons: "We had five pieces of luggage lost during our flight from the U.S. to Spain. When we arrived in Madrid we were told that all five pieces had been located. When we went to pick them up the next day there were only four pieces at the airport. We were told the fifth suitcase would be delivered when it was located. It's ten days later and there's no sign of the luggage. It has taken multiple phone calls to get the information about the luggage correct. They assure me that they have everything correctly documented and then when I call back they haven't changed a thing. It has been a very frustrating process overall."
Cons: "Last minute cancellation and reschedule if original flight with 20 people hounding the gate for standby status. Craziness. These last minute revisions mist stop"
Pros: "USB Outlets are nice to have"
Cons: "Nothing was bad on this flight"
Pros: "I hope I never fly American again!!! We were supposed to leave at 2.pm, but dud not until 11 pm. The AA customer service staff wanted to charge me $ for my carry on! We missed our connection of course! Had to wait 2 hrs at next airport for a hotel. Did receive food vouchers and luggage was checked in right away (good thing). But overall ridiculous! Missed an entire day due to AA not having another plain? Or not finding another way to put passengers in other flights."
Cons: "Customer treatment and lack of interest on custmer satisfaction. The Denver staff was changed so often they had no clue about customers needs and it was all about making the bucks for the airline."
Pros: "Loved entertainment system need bring wireless headset however they will handout some later in flight."
Cons: "Seats were leather didn't let back air out."
Pros: "The America flights were all ON TIME."
Cons: "The seats on this particular flight were not as good for my back and they no longer offer pillows to put behind my back."
Pros: "Ease of boarding"
Cons: "That AA does not follow my preferences. I was assigned a middle seat even though my preference is an aisle seat."
Pros: "I like that American offers free movies thru their app but there was a glitch and I couldn't get it to work!"
Cons: "Couldn't get the entertainment app to work"
Pros: "Nice crew clean airplane"
Cons: "Initial flight was cancelled after 2 hours delay. My next flight was scheduled the earliest possible by AA which was 24 hours later. No transportation,hotel or miles compensation for this. I had work and responsabilities the next day. TThe scheduled trip was supposed to take off at 7:45. Boarding started late and was very slow. My bag fit the meassurements and still was forced to check it (which I did not want to do as I did not want to be waiting an hour for my bag at my arrival as I had work early the next day. In addition there was airplaine traffic as it was "rush hour" instead of flying at 7:45 we departed almost at 9pm!!!! Have to pay for food Quality of tv monitors very poor And in an uncomfortable position No movie options No wifi although stated the aircraft has Non functioning electrical plug"
Pros: "Great crew with an attention to details!"
Cons: "40 min late and a bumpy ride the whole time but good flight"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 9 hours for mechanical issues and they were not able to do anything. Since booking with Kayak neither Alaska airlines or American Airlines would help in getting us an earlier flight and both airlines said they couldn't help after repeated calls. Won't be booking any American Airlines flights throug Kayak again."
Pros: "Flight landed 40 minutes early"
Cons: "Due to early landing, no gate available. We literally rode all over the tarmac making room for other planes to maneuver around...and then did not get to a gate until 15 minutes past ORIGINAL arrival time. Also, I booked a premium seat, but there was no more leg room than any other seat. No meal/snack for purchase was even offered."
Pros: "The pilot was a riot, the flight was on time. Again, nothing wrong, nothing special. As it should be (if only we had more leg and seat room, and I am pretty streamline)."
Cons: "Super old planes, no had a tv."
Pros: "There was nothing too bad other than I wasn't able to check in online bc our first leg of the flight was operated by American Airlines. But there wasn't anything that really stood out that would make me want to fly them again other than it was the best price."
Pros: "The crew was very helpful at each stop even though they weren't responsible for the disasters."
Cons: "Initially we thought we were flying with British Airways. We then had to do some digging to realize it was all out of American Airlines. Then we couldn't get proper boarding passes and luggage tags until one of the crew members spent a significant amount of time untangling each leg of our trip so they were in the proper order. We got delayed by 4 hours in Chicago and missed our connection in Manchester. We had another 5 hour wait there. By the time we got to Dublin, our bags didn't also arrive. After almost 24 hours of travel, we arrived but without all of our stuff."
Pros: "Boarding and baggage."
Cons: "This was a long non-stop flight from Miami to Denver. Over 4 hours. So I took the plunge and bought first class. I always fly first class on any flight over 2 hours. However, I was disappointed. The food was so-so and insufficient. The drinks were also not enough. The video displays were small and poorly located for the movie. The seats seemed uncomfortable. All and all I have come to expect a better experience from American Airlines in First Class. The ticket was expensive."
Pros: "Getting through security was a lot better than I thought. Also, I had plenty of room and the overall ride was smooth."
Cons: "I just wish that there was a little more room and easier ways to earn miles and entry into the lounge."
Pros: "They were on time"
Cons: "The A321 had the most cramped seating I've ever experienced. The video in the seat back didn't work properly going or coming back. Boarding was slow. I don't know why they don't load the rear seats first so you don't have to wait for everyone ahead to secure their carry-on luggage. If they didn't charge so much for checking a bag there wouldn't be so much carry-on baggage"
Pros: "Nothing. My fight from San Juan to Miami on Friday Oct. 7 was cancelled because of hurricane Matthews, since I didnot buy a roundtrip with AA they did not reimburse or offer me a credit for my returning flight. I contacted AA in two ocassions and both times their personnel were impersonal and even rude to me with the whole situation. I ended up losing $250 because of choosing American Airlines. I will do my best to avoid traveling with American ever again, and I will spread the word, as well. I felt robbed, so unfair."
Pros: "The Denver airport is beautiful"
Cons: "I will never fly AA again - see below"
Pros: "Love the movies!!!"
Cons: "Passengers are allowed to take too much on the plane, which makes boarding & getting off take WAY TO LONG. If American would follow Southwest and allow 1 free bag, this problem would end. E"
Pros: "My departing flight crew was very accommodating for my baby and I. They were very pleasant."
Cons: "I wasn't able to board first with my baby, so I had to try and walk through all the passengers with a baby, diaper bag and small carry on. It was a little difficult."
Cons: "I had a severe back injury in Denver and they were unable to move my flight up a day to get home and see a doctor. A good friend had to buy me a new flight with his airline miles so that I could get home to relive my pain. I'll never fly American again because of this complete lack of compassion and care for their customer."
Everything was on time and staff was great
Very clean flight. The attendants were very helpful and patient!
On time flights would be better
Cons: "Wifi would be nice on the smaller flights"
Pros: "They were effective at boarding"
Cons: "My display monitor didn’t work"
Pros: "Excellent landing"
Pros: "Staff was all friendly and exhibited positive and helpful attitudes. I also think the price and route was an excellent deal for this flight. It was actually such a good deal, it’s the main reason I even went."
Cons: "I think the baggage restrictions thing is really slimey and a shameful scam. I actually wouldn’t have minded paying around $50 more for my ticket and hand the bag included than be misled into thinking I could take luggage and finding out after it’s too late that I have to pay for my luggage. I think it’s a really sleazy business tactic (akin to resort fees). Fortunately for me however, I don’t travel with luggage so it doesn’t directly affect me. Still think it’s. Shitty way to do business though."
Cons: "I didn't go on my trip. My course in SF was cancelled and United would n't refund my money or change the dates for my trips because of there basic economy package. They have 3 different economy packages and the economy basic doesn't get refunds and you can't change the flights if needed. It feels like they are banking on increasing there ROI with this basic economy ticket which is 40 -60 dollars cheaper than the next economy package. Intuitively they know people will pick that, but if something comes up the customer is screwed."
Pros: "Staff was friendly"
Cons: "United has a system glitch and we were delayed. I got in around 1 am instead of 11 pm. I decide to order a glass of wine and since they don’t give receipts. I found out i was charged for 2 glasses instead of one. To top it off the co-worker i was traveling with didn’t get charged due to the inconvenience and delay. i travel a lot with United (higher status than him) and would have liked that offer (and not get charged one i didn’t order) being a mileage plus and credit card holder. I did go on line and ask for a credit and they did make it right and give me a credit."
Pros: "We were forced to re-book this leg of our trip because of "insufficient" layover time. The United Airlines staff helping the numerous customers that were forced to re-book were not friendly, did not function with any sense of urgency and were as minimally helpful as possible with the inconvenience. After exiting customs we had 30 minutes to get to our gate, instead of offering to take us to the front of the line to get through security faster we were simply told we would not get through it in enough time to make our flight. Initially we were not even told we were going to be re-booking our flight, we were only told that we needed to re-check our bags at the counter after exiting customs. The entire interaction was very frustrating."
Pros: "I went to go talk to an employee about my flight boarding without me, when an Edwin Rodriguez of EWR New Jersey United Airlines employee started screaming at me. He told me to “wake up” and go run after my flight then while going after my flight he yells at me to come back. He apologized a few minutes later and then proceeds to yell at me again. My flight was canceled and reset for a later time. I have prior medical conditions that Edwin Rodriguez agitated through consistently harassing me at the help desk and am now in distress. I’m being relocated due to active duty military service and this is how you treat military veterans and their families."
Cons: "Edwin Rodriguez of the EWR airport in New Jersey. If I screamed whenever I didn’t get my way I’d be arrested. I will never fly United Airlines again because of Edwin Rodriguez."
Pros: "Chief flight attendant was nice and attentive."
Cons: "Our section of the plane was very warm. When we mentioned it to one of the attendants, she pointed to the overhead vents and told us to use them. (We already knew this and had them open all the way!) Then the chief flight attendant came by and she was VERY responsive and went to tell the pilots. It got a little better but still stayed on the warm side the rest of the way. Your boarding process makes no sense and does nothing to get passengers settled faster. After priority seating is done, let the people in the BACK of the plane board first, then the middle section passengers, then the Eco Plus passengers."
Cons: "When I was boarding the flight from Denver to Jackson the ticket agent was extremely hostile and rude. I was carrying a back pack and a small purse strapped across my shoulder which was maybe 4"x6". He shouted at me after I had handed in my ticket and started down the gangway that my purse needed to be in my backpack. I have never heard of such a thing in all my years of travel. I complied and started to put my purse into my backpack when he shouted at me "Ms. Derbyshire get back here now! You cannot be past the counter!" Your employee was rude, hostile and made me very upset as well as the other passengers waiting to board. Later other passengers who witnessed the event told me how upset they were. Sadly this is not the first time I have had issues with United. Clearly this type of behavior is in your culture. There is no need to shout at anyone."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed which caused us to miss our international connection. Flight attendants did not care, did not attempt to get us out faster, or put on a different flight. Asked for an announcement to be made on board or to be moved to seats closer to the front so we could get off the plane quicker, did not happen. Offboarded and sprinted across the airport for our international connection and was notified by gate attendents that the gate closed five minutes ago and that they could not let us on the plane. Meanwhile, the plane sat there for an additional 30 minutes while it fueled and waited for release from air traffic control. There were six travelers total stuck there in San Fran at that gate, all of us begging to be let on the plane to Beijing, the last one for over 24 hours. Zero compassion from staff at the the airline gate. They did not care about us and did not care about leaving their travelers stranded. Our total travel was Denver to Bangkok, 26 hours of travel including layovers in San Fran and Beijing. In San Fran (after missing the gate connection), United rerouted us through Haiwaii and the customer service agent that did this reroute did not finish the reroute to our final destination. We got to Haiwaii and were stranded again, at the United service desk for four hours having to once again provide documentation of our initial travel plans to Bangkok, having them build a new itinerary to our final destination. Overall, 20 additional travel hours have been added to our itinerary, almost double our initial travel time. We have had to call and cancel pre-arranged bookings in Thailand as we are now missing two full days off our trip. I am absolutely disappointed and heart broken as I write this still stuck in the Beijing airport waiting another six hours to connect to Bangkok. My fiancé and I were traveling to Thailand to get married and have received no compassion from anyone at this airline to try and get us there. I fly United for work quite frequently and have never experienced such horrendous service and lack of basic human compassion. I am flat out disgusted by United and will not be using them again, for personal travel or work related trips, because of this horrendous experience."
Pros: "Crew did a great job. Air China had much better food service."
Cons: "Seats two small, not enough room to stretch your legs. Bathroom to small. Designed for people less than 150lbs, and 5'-6" in height Not comfortable for people over 6' tall."
Pros: "The flight actually had hot food for sale! The cheeseburger was pretty good."
Cons: "I had a really hard time getting the cabin crews' attention during boarding for a piece of safety equipment. I hit the call light, tried to catch them as the crew was distributing headphones, and the light got turned off by an off-duty flight attendant without checking that we needed something. I got it in the end with an apology from crew but I still don't feel terribly safe Also, the paid entertainment system that my neighbors purchased seemed to be down with static for a portion of the flight."
Cons: "Customer service for united is terrible and the attendants were rude while we were delayed for 2 hours on the tarmac"
Pros: "Seat 7 A on this type of aircraft - and United's configuration - had the most leg room and space, esp. when the seat next to you is empty. The flight crew was friendly and great!"
Cons: "Boarding gates/ area in Denver airport for these small aircraft was almost as bad as a bus station! Crowded and most cramped/ uncomfortable. Denver United staff at customer service center was most unhelpful, unsympathetic and dismissive about the fact that in spite of a flight delay that completely their fault (no weather delay), which made me miss the memorial service for my friend's daughter - my main purpose for visiting Cincinnati - they refused to even give me a patient hearing much less consider my request to try and put me on a different flight!"
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: "I had flown from Honolulu to Denver arriving at 6:30 am this morning having paid $25 for a checked bag. So had to get luggage and turn right around to check-in for Denver to Cedar Rapids and pay another $25 with the same airline because I wasn't able to check all the way through! So I feel I was charged double"
Pros: "The Captain kept us apprised of the delays in our flight."
Cons: "How the Denver airport has their gates set up for 77/78/79 and others, having to walk down stairs? then down a long hallway to go out on the tarmac to board the plane, then when having to deplane, repeat what we had just done in reverse, some customers were traveling with small children/babies, no offer to help these people were made, except to tell them they could use the elevator. Thought it was ridiculous that we had to go all the way to original gate when we were told we would be loading again on the gate next to the one we just came in from."
Cons: "That my flight got delayed in Denver over an hour and I missed my flight from LA to BJX because of that. I was suppose to land in BJX At 6am on Friday April 28th for a family emergency and now my next flight isn't till 1pm! This is the worst flight experience I have ever had in my life. Never in my life will I ever fly with united again. My plans got ruined, I was forced to sleep on the cold dirty floor of LAX. This cost me a lot of time and money, and I am upset about it. I will tell all my peers about this horrible experience and encourage them to never fly with united ever again. I do expect some sort of compensation over this horrible experience."
Pros: "On time in spite of a late start Gate attendants were nice and helpful Comfortable as is possible in economy without spending a lot more money. Food (pretzels and drinks) as good as possible without spending more money. (I remember the good old days when you got much more in seating and food for your money)"
Cons: "This flight I had a window seat and I felt like I couldn't get up to stretch my legs or use the bathroom. (I am 70 and 4 hours is too long to sit) I usually get an isle seat but ALWAYS have to give up my bag at the gate - my bag which you tell me I can bring ON the plane with me. I do not like having to waste time claiming my bag that you told me I could have with me on the plane. I can pay $25 for that privilege!! The flight attendants always seem like they have their defenses up. One even held up the people trying to board so she could serve a drink to someone in first class. REALLY?? They couldn't wait till the plane was loaded?? I gave this flight a 'good' rating because it was mostly as good as it is going to get with economy passengers needs stripped to the bare minimum."
Cons: "EVERYTHING. My flight was originally scheduled for 650p. I understand that weather can cause delays. That's OK. However, the flight departure kept getting shifted. We ended up boarding for a 9:58p departure. I was told there was no more overhead space for my bag and forced to check it. When I got on the plane at 930p, there was clearly enough overhead room for my bag. I'm not sure why I was forced to check it. We then sat from 930p to 958p. We pulled away from the gate and then were told that we had to wait another 20 min. We turned off the engine and then waited until sometime between 1130-45 ON THE AIRPLANE on the runway. Is this even legal?? We finally took off and landed at 115a PST. I waited for 35 min for my bag that they forced me to check. They loaded our bags onto the wrong carousel, which caused all of us to be waiting for our bags in the wrong place for 10 minutes. This was the worst experience I've ever had flying. It wasn't the delay but the lack of clarity, being forced to sit on that plane for hours, and having my bag taken. I got to the airport in Denver at 550p PST and got home to SF at 3a PST for a 2 hour flight."
Pros: "I like everything United does for the most part. It is a clean., well-run business, with friendly people."
Cons: "I am 6 foot 6 and I am a teacher who cannot always afford business class. The economy seats cause people to literally laugh when they see me try to sit in one. The person in front of my cannot lean back unless I spread eagle and take the space of the person next to me. Generally, I request an open exit row seat, which they now charge 100 dollars for. I don't think I should get free everything because I am tall, but it's not like I am fat, I have no choice in the matter and flying tends to be tortuous."
Pros: "I liked the new, immaculately clean plane that appeared to have more leg room between seats, which also appeared to recline more than my recent United Flights. Other rows appeared to be quite comfortable. I don't like the only flight options into Aquadilla to be so late at night. There is enough of a demand into and out of this airport to have at least a few daytime flights."
Cons: "After having changed my seat and choosing the last row, I realized that those seats had been squashed into the remaining space in the cabin. It did not allow for as much leg room as other seats and being the last row, the seats did not incline. My own fault for selecting this row however, I wish it had been mentioned when I made the selection. Also, the entertainment was only available through an APP on one's Smart Phone. This assumes everyone has a smart phone, the correct plan and the knowledge to use said app. Too much reliance on technology when the "old way" worked just fine for more customers. The Crew was fantastic......very accommodating without being over bearing."
Pros: "On time boarding"
Cons: "Older model plane had no TVs so had to rely on United Wi-fi which was not working for 90% of the flight. At least 6 overhead bins were locked, which lead to decrease overhead carry on space. Front desk had already boarded all 5 groups before realizing there was not enough overhead compartment space causing at least 50+ passengers to circle back to the plane door to check in their baggage. Flight crew and passengers had to hastily reshuffle overhead luggage causing inefficient boarding process and confusion during unboarding process. Baggage claim went to a different carousel than the one stated."
Cons: "Upon approach we were suddenly deverted to Seattle. I had a few issues. Number one you could not hear the pilot so that made it worse. The lack of communication was horrible. I have been on flights when there has been clarity given a change in plans but this was bad. We sat at the gate for an hour and a half, again no real communication, the fligh attendant t hope was joking when he said there was a half a bottle left for the whole plane...much later we were served water. Announcements were made but no clarity. We were told to collect baggage at number 2. Get a voucher for a hotel. After deplann9ng about 25 of us stood in line at the customer service desk where there were two staff working slowly. Then after an hour they announced we were in the wrong place, couldn't that have been explained earlier? Once we made our way out of the terminal to the ticket count the line was all the way down the hall. still with little info we waited. We landed at the alternate airport at 945, at 130am I had my vouchers, the food not useful until the following day, the hotels were full, no one picked up the phone for the shuttle bus to the hotels. I finally elected to sleep at the airport on a bench. We had actually all been reassigned a flight on our same plane. So I am not sure why we had to wait in line all that time. Our bags were not removed from the plane an irritated baggage claim attendant told me. It was a mess. The flight the next morning was fine, short, without problems for me. united needs to work on its communications. It would have been helpful to have someone out side running the line giving out info. And at customer service they should have been paying attention to their line. Would have been helpful."
Pros: "There was nothing good to like about this leg of my trip."
Cons: "I paid for first class and It was the worst flight I have ever been on, sat in the plane at the gate for over an hour with a huge women that was brought up to1st class from economy, she smelled, she was a lush. There was a child that did not quit crying the entire flight, I could not get off the plane fast enough, there was nothing1st class about the flight, we needed fuel after we boarded, then it was a cargo issue,and then it was airport, we should not have been on the plane until the plane was ready for flight.very poor planning you should be embarrassed about the flight."
Pros: "Only good thing was the flight was fast and on flight staff friendly."
Cons: "Flight to Denver was supposed to leave from Albuquerque at 9:55. Screen said flight was on time. No rep at desk and screen changes to Houston and only way we found out our flight was delayed because the plane was diverted to Durango is because another passenger called United. Finally at a quarter till 11am the screen at the gate changed back to Denver but still said 9:55am departure flight on time but united's website stated flight delayed till 11:55am. Upon return to Albuquerque from Denver bag was not on my flight so I had to hang out in Albuquerque although, I live an hour away because I have prescription meds in my checked bag I need to take 4 times daily. Would not fly United again"
Pros: "Nothing to like. 6:00pm flight delayed and kept rescheduling takeoff. Boarded plane about midnight and after ninety plus minutes we were made to deplane because current crew was over their allotted airtime. Kept on plane awaiting a new crew but they couldn't get them so flight cancelled. Attendants told us we would be compensated for cancellation. A big airline like united should have a better grasp on scheduling flight crews and stand bys available instead of putting us through this hell. No hotels available so we all had to stay overnight in uncomfortable chairs with many sleeping on floors. I felt bad for myself as a 69 ur old woman with some health issues but felt even worse for the parents flying with little toddlers who just wanted to go home. The day of my flight Denver had 8" of snow that stopped by 9am yet I couldn't get a flight out till the following evening. Psp to Denver to Newark should have taken six hours but took me over 38 hrs of travel time. Denver should be used to snow and 8" shouldn't cause such extreme disruption at that airport. And united needs to better coordinate its flight schedules and working crews. I will be contacting customer service regarding compensation as cancelled flight was due to company musmagent. Finally it would have been nice if united opened its club to the travelers who couldn't get hotels. Sitting in a comfortable place would have been so much better especially to the elderly and small children traveling. Thank you"
Cons: "I was two hours delayed from my originating terminal in Denver due to a snow storm overnight. I arrive into Houston two hours late only to re adjust my remaining flights back to Denver. Two days later. What was supposed to be a one day trip to get my kids to spend it with me in Colorado. Is now turning into a three day filled adventure in airports."
Pros: "Online confirmation"
Cons: "My seat assignments were changed and we were at the end of the plane next to the bathroom. I know I didn't put those. I don't like the fact that you have to pay for baggage and there is no food provided other than a drink and some really poor substitute even for peanuts. Southwest at least allows you to have a free baggage. It's not the fault of the pilot but it also is very bumpy. The flight crew was fine and it's just the uncomfortable aspects of having my seat assignment changed and the extra charges for anything that makes it comfortable."
Pros: "I made it home"
Cons: "When I got to the ticket counter my reservations had been canceled by united. Worst part is the flight is now completely booked. I was lucky enough to make the flight thanks to a late flight from vegas where 7 people were connecting from but it was pretty stressful to walk up to the counter to be told the reservation you have had for 2 months was no longer reserved. This was one of the rudest staffed planes I've been on. These guys aren't over worked. I don't know why they can be so hateful. I loved united but this experience has left a sour taste in my mouth. It all worked out in the end, but I still can't follow why my flight reservation was canceled without me being notified. I shouldn't find something like that out when I get to the airport with my luggage in my hand."
Cons: "The crew knew multiple people on the Hayden to Denver flights had very limited wait time to get from plane to terminal, but took forever in delivering our luggage for plane side pick up. When I asked the lady who came by to let us know of our gates, she pretty much told me, 'good luck'. I picked up my bag with 10 mins to spare to run from gate 86? to 24. I think more should have been done to accommodate. To be fair, the other lady who came by to let us know of our gates, offered to call my terminal and let them know I was on the way"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "The fact that we had a connecting flight to minot from Denver. Arrived late to Denver because of weather, but my stroller that I had left on the jetway in Seattle was never put on the plane which I didn't know until I got to minot. I was going to wait for it in denver, but I would have missed my flight to minot had I waited 5 more minutes. We arrived to minot only to find out that our 3 suitcases, one stroller and 2 car seats were never in the flight. Awful! And my connecting flight was even delayed an extra 55 min so I don't quite know where my things are."
Cons: "Planes have mechanical issues, but they could have done more things at the same time like reboard while the post repair system checks ran and sort out baggage weights so that there weren't delays on top of delays. That was after not noticing issues with the plane until after waiting for late passengers and taxiing out. We arrived 4hrs late for a 3hr flight. They also only had one agent to rebook flights and assign hotels at the end even though they had hours to know the connections would be missed."
Pros: "the customer service rep was very professional and helped us out."
Cons: "my girlfriend and I were removed from the plane. she had received troubling news from her family that kept stacking on, not to mention we were tired from traveling all day thanks to delays making us miss our flights. and when we gestured for an attendant to come by, light dark skin, facial hair, glasses. he had customer service come by and we reiterated the question if we decided we would like to get off the plane would it be possible to receive a voucher for the flight. but we told him that we were just trying to consider options and we were good to go, and the customer service told us that the attendant did not feel comfortable with us on the plane, and that my girlfriend reached out and touched him and he did not feel safe. we never even raised our hands our eye brows. they caused us all kinds of hell, we couldn't get another flight till 2210, they embarrassed and humiliated my girlfriend because she was crying. unacceptable."
Pros: "The airplane was new and clean"
Cons: "The pre-boarding staff were rude and not helpful. I had requested an aisle seat when I booked my flight. Somewhere along the line, my seat was changed to a middle seat. When I asked the staff if I could switch to an aisle seat to help accommodate my sciatica, they told me, "sorry, we can't help you, you'll just have to ask another passenger." Neither crew member was willing to work with me or hear my concerns. So much for flying the friendly skies...well I guess we were still on land, so may that principle had not yet taken effect."
Pros: "The employees were very helpful on both legs of the journey and the conneting flights were conveniently located in the same area. Pilot was good about letting us know time frame of mechanical issue repair while on tarmack."
Cons: "The seats were incredibly uncomfortable. Must be the type of plane because never really had issues on other flights. We noticed many carry on bags others brought on bosrd were oversized. On leg from Kalispell to Denver the crew were diligent in spotting larger bags and tagging them for under plane storage for the flight. From Den to SFO however not so much. This led to most bins being filled ahead of our group 4 boarding with larger than permitted carry on bags. Obviously larger! Luckily we were able to put our smaller bags (which we made sure fit to overhead storage specs ahead of time) under the seat for flight but that made an uncomfortable 2.5 hour journey. Actually over 3 hrs because there was a mechanical problem which had us sitting on the tarmack for over 30 minutes from Den to SFO. We've flown United before without much incident but this trip in particular was pretty crappy."
Cons: "I Purchased 2 round trip tickets for myself and my son. My son had a change of plans and purchased another one way ticket to leave a week earlier. So his first leg of my purchase was not used. They resold that seat on May 27. So they made money Twice on that seat. Then when we checked in to return on 15 June. We were told his ticket had been cancelled and I had to purchase another ticket for his return. The flight was NOT sold out. My entire row of seats was empty. So I paid for 2 seats for the same flight. This is theft, coming and going and I am calling my lawyer!"
Pros: "The flight was on time, and the attendants courteous."
Cons: "However, the seats were so cramped, it was pretty miserable, even for just a 2 hour flight. With no snacks even offered because of turbulence, and no working wifi or seat back TVs, there was nothing to distract from how uncomfortable we all were. Plus, Austin's airport layout requires travelers to walk awfully far to get bags and then a rental car. Don't dare be disabled or feeling unwell--you'll never make it! Of course our gate was furthest from baggage claim, & someone's has to be. Nevertheless, it's a terrible layout, w/ pedestrians pushing through boarding queues and where others are lined-up to buy food."
Cons: "On April 15 we flew from Sacramento to Basel, via Los Angeles and Munich. We did exactly what we were told re reserving seats. We were told to call 23 hrs. in advance to reserve seats. When we tried to follow directions, we were not able to check in. Without checking in, we could not reserve seats. After numerous phone calls, to various numbers, we were not able to check in or reserve seats. By continuing to ask questions, to try and understand, we were told we were "under airport control". This was an "at random" situation and online check in was not available. Only 5 minutes earlier, we were still being instructed to check in online! We had never heard of this. I contacted a neighbor, who flies often internationally and within the U.S. He said it had happened to him once. He agreed that driving to the airport in Sacramento was a wise decision. This is not what we wanted to be doing 1 day before departure. At Sacramento we found a kind gentleman who saw our dilemma and checked us in as a favor. We saw assigned seats. He suggested we request to improve our seats the following travel day. It was a very challenging morning. As I tried to improve our seating the following day I was told, by airport staff, that this happened because we booked through Kayak? Rather with an attitude that we should have booked differently. This was a vacation we had looked forward to for years. I worked hard at not letting this difficult start damage my trip. Upon arrival in Amsterdam, I tried to learn more, to prevent a similar situation on the way home."
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."
Cons: "Very rude lady working at United desk at LAX. I am a veteran and I have very bad anxiety and PTSD and my wife (who is active duty) were split up for the flight so we had asked to be seated next to one another since we had picked our seats online prior to flying. The lady was very rude rolling her eyes saying that there was nothing she could do for us besides us asking people to possibly switch seats even though my spouse had the United app open and showed two seats to upgrade too and she didn't even ask if we wanted to upgrade to be next to each other. At this point I had to take my anxiety medication and as we were taking off one of the flight attendants said we could ask about upgrading but yet the lady at the desk said nothing."
Pros: "Regardless of product, the 787 is by far the most comfortable aircraft in the sky. Obviously you can't compare UA Economy to EY's "Residence" on the 380, but once you're comparing similar products across different aircraft, the 787 blows all the others out of the water. This is because of the higher cabin pressure, higher cabin humidity, and relatively enormous windows at eye level. Even UA can't ruin the 787 experience with their snippy staff (I almost found myself apologizing for asking for the little bag of snack mix that I missed out on because I was snoozing when they first came around) and ear-splitting announcements. The flight was delayed due to a mechanical, and the staff at NRT was very helpful in getting us to where we needed to be."
Cons: "The plane had a mechanical issue that they had to sort out after we pushed back. This was not so bad, but they changed their minds about whether we would take the original plane or switch to a second 787 that had flown in on NRT-DEN so many times I lost count. This is why I gave the "boarding" process poor marks--please just figure out whether we need to get off (we didn't need to, but did anyway) and whether we are going to switch to another aircraft before letting everyone off. The staff at NRT failed to consider moving the DEN-HKG passengers to a ET NRT-HKG flight (which surely had available seats) that was parked next door. Instead, we were all put on a HND-HKG flight leaving about five hours later than the ET flight."
Cons: "When i originally boarded the flight i notices that the person next to me was an obese person that was taking over half of my seat when i went to the flight attendant and informed her she said she might not be able to do anything cause the flight was full. When door was about to close i noticed an empty seat and took. The thing that upset me is if there not been an empty seat i would have had to seat in a seat where there was no space and still would have paid the same as a person that is taking part of my seat and the flight attendant didbt even seem to care."
Cons: "The flight was delayed twice after boarding, we had to sit in the plane for almost 2 hours. I dont think frontier is worth the price anymore, you definatley get what you pay for. I had to check a bag both ways because a checked bag is cheaper than their fee to carry on a bag. There were no complimentary drinks or snack even after having to sit on the plane for so long. I requested an aisle seat and got stuck in the middle. Overall, think I will be paying the extra for any other airline than frontier."
Pros: "Pretty much nothing"
Cons: "Tray tables the size of my cell phone. Had to pay $50 a piece for each item checked or carried on. Seats don't recline. You have to pay for any snack or refreshments while on the plane. No entertainment options, not even a magazine. Armrests didn't fold all the way up. Flight attendant wouldn't allow any switching of seats even though an entire row of seats was empty. Flight crew all looked and acted worn out and cranky. I recieved no forward notice of the cost of luggage and carry on items until I reached the ticket counter, and then would've had to pay a fee in order to cancel my trip with them. This is classic bait and switch with predatory tactics. The woman at the ticket counter tried to tell me that they were still the cheapest airline available to which I replied. "You are a complete liar. It would have cost us 8 more dollars to go with a United flight instead, but overall would have saved me. 92$ in the long run with a much more comfortable flight and complimentary refreshments. Not only will I never fly frontier again, I will tell anyone willing to listen to not fly frontier as well."
Pros: "Modern planes. Good on board crew."
Cons: "2.5 hour delay, no explanation why."
Cons: "The seats are incredibly thin with nearly no padding and don't recline. No complimentary drinks or snacks. Tray table is too small to be of any use"
Cons: "They didn't know how to handle the unpleasant situation of having delay due to "the plane is having some problems and they will try to fix it asap before departure"."
Cons: "Horrible delay , uncourteous attendants , not even drinking water is free More or less every airline of America is like this except Southwest ."
Pros: "The ride home"
Cons: "The 4 hour delay that received once we arrived at 4:30 AM to catch our 6 o'clock flight home to find out it had been delayed until 9:28 AM. Once we were on the plane we were then told we would be delayed until 10 AM. Flying with two children was difficult for a four hour delay. However front tier did give us all $10 food vouchers and $50 vouchers each for our next flight. Once we landed in Houston we then sat on the tarmac for another hour waiting for the gate open. The plane did have mechanical issues which caused the delay but still the notice given was always last minute"
Pros: "There was a very sensitive situation that occurred with a passenger. She had been in the wrong seat, and was asked to show the ticket for the proper seat and didn't have a ticket. The steward asked very professionally and calmly for the passenger to cooperate for the situation to be resolved. She was not cooperative to be polite. The security came and the the pilot, and everyone handled the situation very well. The last time she was asked to cooperate, she finally walked off the plane, on her own. My understanding is that she missed her original flight and boarded this plane. Not certain of the details, but I feel that everyone involved handled this very well."
Pros: "The landing was good."
Cons: "$40 for a carry on? Come on now. $5 seat upcharge because "window seat"? Chairs that don't recline? You interrupt my already terrible nap so you can try to sell the entire plane your "no-black-outs" Mastercard. The cabin was much too hot, people complained and nothing was done -- adding insult to injury, water costs money. Every aspect of buying a ticket is littered with popups to upsell you to something "better" or more "exclusive". The entire experience from buying a ticket to touch-down was dehumanizing and an insult my intelligence."
Cons: "I am a 75 year old female and I did not hear the overhead page for early boarding, as I am a little slower to get on the plane and would appreciate the extra time to get into my seat. When I went to board the plane (zone 3), another passenger and his girlfriend wanted to sit together and refused to move out of my window seat, even after I told the gentleman I paid for that seat, including extra ($6) for the window seat. I felt I was bullied me out of my seat that I paid extra money for and because then another passenger in the other row yelled at me to "sit down" so I would not hold up the other passengers from sitting down in their seats. I was forced to take the seat the gentleman's girlfriend must have had in the middle of the two other passengers in the other row across from where I was scheduled to sit. I know I could have called the airline stewardess but felt pressured to stay where I was because of the other passenger I had to sit next to who had yelled at me earlier. I wish there was more of an attempt to let elderly passengers board first."
Pros: "the beginning price - maybe?"
Cons: "I got to the airport in Dallas 2 hours before my 6:55 flight, and at that very moment, received a text that the flight was delayed 3 hours. At that time, there was NO ONE at the Frontier check in to explain what was going on. I understand there was excessive wind in Denver, but there should have at least been a Frontier representative at the gate in Dallas. On my way home, again the flight was delayed by an hour because of something on a previous leg. Because of this, I am going to go with any other airline first. I think Frontier should either co-op with other airlines to get people to their destinations on time or have more planes.......or AT LEAST have someone at the gate to offer next day service or a voucher or a free snack or something. I also do not like the whole A LA CARTE theme with this airline and Spirit Air. I do not like that I was going to be charged for a coffee or a coke. The whole thing is too confusing, and I am going to pay more for an American, United or Southwest flight next time."
Pros: "We were amazed by the initial cost of $120 round trip ticket"
Cons: "The dates of our event changed, so we needed to adjust our original booking. The change cost $100 per ticket to change, and additional fees on top of that. We have taken on all of the extra fees for the change, and now there will be bag fees and whatever else we run into on the day of travel. We accept the fact that some fees are normal for change of itinerary, but it feels like we are getting nickel and dimed right now. This is what we were warned about from friends when we initially booked our "great rate"!"
Cons: "No real complaints about the flight, HOWEVER, Frontier's luggage handlers (probably in Denver) ruined a piece of my luggage. I got home very late and didn't notice the problem until the next morning. I checked their baggage policy and noticed there was a four-hour window to report lost or damaged luggage, so I was out of luck on a $100 piece of luggage. I recognize damage can be caused by any airline, but when you have to pay to check a bag AND carry one on, you would think you'd be given more than four hours to report a problem."
Pros: "We did not crash. I appreciated that. Also, we made slightly faster time than planned."
Cons: "I had no idea that a *carry on* costs $30. That's just obscene. My GF and I took a weekend trip to Utah and brought only our backpacks because we didn't want to spend the extra dough. Lame. At Frontier, you don't even get to choose your seats without paying extra money. If you want to guarantee that you can sit in the absolute worst seats on the plane that's gonna cost you an extra $5. Sure hope we get to sit together! Lame. The seats were one step above folding lawn chairs. Lame. When the flight crew refers to the 6 inch by 3 inch "table" as a "barbie tray" that makes it funny, but no less lame. How could we top all this lameness off with a lame sauce? How about the flight crew "requesting" your attention and forcing you to sit through a 5 minute *credit card offer*. I could not believe it when the credit card offer started. Afterwards, she walked through the aisles and asked every person who dared to gaze in her general direction whether they were interested in her offer. How many were? ZERO. Before this flight I truly had no opinion about which airline I should fly, but now I do have a preference... Literally anyone other than Frontier."
Cons: "They lost the full planes worth of baggage at the arrival in Denver, we waited over an hour and a half for the luggage, while other flights arrived, got their bags and left. Attendant kept coming over the intercom saying they were looking for the bags from our flight. Once on the plane and the doors shut, passengers were not allowed to move to an empty row, because they said we did not pay for other seats in coach, so had to sit cramped in seats while multiple rows were empty or had only one passenger for the 3 seats."
Pros: "The flight was fine. It arrived on time, and I don't mind the immobile seat backs and the lack of a talk tray table."
Cons: "I received an email on Tuesday night informing me that my Thursday am flight was cancelled, due to anticipated weather (no increment weather at the time), The email provided no instructions for rebooking except a phone number. I tried rebooking on the web site, but that didn't work. The web site did not know about the cancellation at all and wanted to charge me a large rebooking fee. Meanwhile I was on hold for two hours. Finally, I needed a midnight trip to the airport in order to rebook. At the airport, I witnessed ill-informed and stressed agents failing to cope with stressed stranded customers. One agent told a customer that she refused to help him any longer because he recorded her."
Pros: "The flight was on time and the plane was clean. The crew was very friendly."
Cons: "The airline did not provide seat assignments at booking or prior to the flight. To secure seats together with my 11 year old son, I was upcharged at the airport ($85 for tow flights). No amenities were provided. Apple juice cost $3. No in flight entertainment, not even a magazine. This flight cost as much as a major airline when I booked it--the only convenience was timing back to our original airport. Add the seat up charge and I probably paid more. This experience proved to me that it might be ok to pay a little extra for a major carrier, especially on long trips."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Online check in and boarding was okay. Nonstop Denver to Columbus."
Cons: "I didn't like being stabbed with outrageous fees for baggage (checked and carry on). I especially didn't like seat assignment fees and no ability to keep your party seated together unless you pay their ridiculous surcharges. By the time you get done with every extra charge they rope you into you can fly any otheir airlicanard possibly for less money. In addition, the seating is terrible. Rows are crammed in tight with the new non reclining rubber pad seats that are sure to send you to the chiropractor. They have the unmitigated gall to cram their credit card sales pitch over the PA followed up with multiple trips up amddown the aisle. Hey Frontier, if I wanted a credit card sales pitch I would stay home and answer the damn robocalls. Nice way to treat your customers, especially after you stab them $3 for a drink."
Cons: "frontier was awful. they pushed our flight out of new york back three times and then canceled in the middle of the night, saying they didn't have partnerships with other airlines so couldn't get us out until the 25th (the day before our return flight). we talked to both customer service on the phone (20 minute wait to get someone) and gate agents and EVERYONE said they weren't authorized to give us a refund for any of the inconvenience and unanticipated expenses. ultimately we ended up flying out of philly (paying for our own bus tickets) on AMERICAN (paying for another flight with our own money) to get to our family in denver. on the way back they weren't going to let us check luggage for free, again saying no one was authorized to do that until thankfully they discovered a note from the manager we spoke to in nyc. otherwise they would not have given it to us even after we spoke to the manager in denver. we boarded our return flight to find that we couldn't sit down as someone had vomited (not frontier's fault), and that was the cherry on top. we just burst out laughing because the whole thing was a disaster. we ended up spending the same amount as our "inexpensive" frontier tickets and more on fixing the trip ourselves because they wouldn't help us at all. truly a terrible experience and i don't anticipate flying frontier again."
Pros: "I was very surprised at all of the small things and extra charges that you had for the flight. For example, even just paying for a soda on board I thought was a little overboard. And then once my flight was canceled they were of no help on rescheduling my flight and were not able to find another frontier flight for four more days. Myself and others were left to reschedule our own flights without any repayment of the difference in ticket price. I will not fly this airline again I caution everyone else at the lack of customer support and professionalism ."
Pros: "(1) Waited almost two hours for checked bags at the Denver airport. (2) They double charged me for carry on on the return flight ( I had to call and wait on hold for 45 minutes to get a refund after the trip). (3) my friend had to take a train back to Iowa after boarding return flight to Iowa because flight was cancelled due to no pilots available (4) my return flight to Orlando was delayed 2-3 hrs so my arrival ended up being 3:30AM. Weather impacted but larger airlines would have adjusted better. Horrible all the way around and I rarely complain about travel or service in general."
Pros: "Despite the hour we spent waiting on the tarmac for a gate to open, my flight to Denver, out of Cleveland, actually took place. I had a seat and everything!"
Cons: "I had a direct flight on Wednesday, the 21st of December, from Denver to Cleveland via Frontier. We arrived on time, checked our bags, and were given tickets that did not include seat assignments. Frontier oversold our flight by more than 30 seats! We were told that we might be able to make it home on Christmas if we flew Frontier, or we could make our own arrangements and Frontier would reimburse us up to $400. So, we wound up flying Delta from Denver to Minnneapolis, and then Minneapolis to Detroit, and then renting a car from Detroit to Cleveland. That got us home at about midnight, and cost us more than $600. It was the cheapest option available."
Pros: "The staff was very professional. Especially the male flight attendant on F9269 Denver to Santa Ana. Staff on the plane was great!"
Cons: "I understand there were a lot of issues with the weather and the original plane to be boarded. We departed an hour and 15 minutes late and with the transfer of planes, it seemed that at least half the plane did not get their luggage. There was at least 50 of us standing at the baggage claim and we never got our bags. There was also no one to really talk to about it except one person. We all lined up to give our information to her. Fortunately, I was already talking to her when the line started and got that done pretty quickly. As far as the rest of the passengers, I'm assuming if they were at the back they had to waste another hour waiting to give information after waiting about an hour for our luggage. Also, I live local so it is not a big deal for me to go to the airport to retrieve my bag, wherever it is. Others do not have that luxury."
Cons: "Only airline in the airport with delays from a snow storm 3 days ago!! About 7 hours in the airport with multiple delays before it was canceled. No other flights available for a week. Refunds available (supposedly) but had to wait in lines over 10hours long or through their phone service with significant waits before being routed to their website which was pointless. Some people were waiting over 10 hours to pick up their checked bags from previously canceled flights. Hundreds of flights were canceled the day before as well. Again, this was the only airline in the airport with these issues. Other flights were leaving without problem. I will never fly frontier again."
Pros: "Stewards were professional"
Cons: "Experience started with sitting on plane for 2 hours or more while maintenance was fixing thermostat, then plane was shut down for 10 mins., then had to wait another 10 for plane to reboot. All this didn't work, so we were told get all your stuff, get off plane then go wait at another gate to reboard another plane...so family plans were ruined since we all arrived 3 hrs later starving, thirsty & tired.. . No compensation was offered for all the inconvenience and we paid a high price for this flight that you had to pay a lot for a carry on. Flight home was at least 2 hr delay. Also not sure why entertainment is on survey since there wasn't any, or food since not even peanuts were offered and comfort??? Noticed less space pet person since my last flight and even the tray was tiny. None of our group of 7 will fly Frontier again, and will make sure everyone who asks about our trip will hear about our awful experience w/Frontier."
Pros: "The crew was friendly. The flight was pretty much on time besides a short delay on the way to Denver."
Cons: "I didn't like showing up and being charged $40 each way for my carry-on. That made the ticket price go up to the same price as leading and preferred competitors. The food options were very minimal and there was no option for on-flight entertainment. Also, on the return flight I was seated towards the back of the plane. The back was completely packed and full and then I realized after take off that the front of the plane was nearly empty. They did a horrible job at being aware of this and they really could of increased everyone's overall comfort if they spaced us out more evenly."
Cons: "THE FLIGHT KEPT BEING DELAYED ALL DAY AND THEN IT WAS CANCELLED. PASSENGERS HAD TO SECURE OTHER FLIGHTS TO THEIR DESTINATIONS. SOME EVEN MISSED IMPORTANT EVENTS LIKE FUNERALS, CRUISES APPOINTMENTS, ETC. I WAS A DAY LATE FOR MY EVENT. I THINK WE SHOULD HAVE BEEN TOLD IMMEDIATELY SO WE COULD HAVE MADE OTHER ARRANGEMENTS EARLIER. I WAS NOT A HAPPY CAMPER AND WILL NOT CONSIDER FLYING FRONTIER IN THE FUTURE!!!!!!!! THAT WAS MY FIRST AND LAST TIME TO PURCHASE TRANSPORTATION FROM FRONTIER AIRLINES."
Pros: "Nothing! I was just happy we had a safe flight."
Cons: "This was my first and last time ever I would flight with this airline! I don't know where to begin! from the rude receptionist at the counter telling me "I'm just following the rules..." to the uncomfortable seat that don't recline. my ticket cost me almost $500 to Denver, that should cost half! because the airline, forced a hidden fee of $40 for a carry on -both ways $80- ! and to top that, it was an uncomfortable ride, seats don't recline, and they had no Entertainment screen, no food, and rude service."
Cons: "1. They charge for every little thing. Each checked bag is $25.00 and each carry on is $35.00. They also charge you for a seat. So once you purchase your ticket, you then have to pay an additional fee to seat down. 2. The staff is unprofessional. Not only does everyone look sloppy, but the staff is comprised of individuals that don't care at all about customers and have been poorly trained. The quality is very low. 3. I was hit and then verbally abused by a gentlemen on the plane, they laughed and did nothing!!!!! 4. They only allow 15 bags on their plane! After 15, they will move your bags to a different plane without telling you. What kind of nonsense is that?!"
Cons: "Seats are so unpadded it was like sitting 3 hours on a board. Mini-tray tables are difficult to use. I had to pay another $84 for seats and one carry-on bag before I could get a boarding pass. I did not see these costs disclosed before I booked the ticket. They do not serve ANYTHING, drinks or food, unless you buy it. The overhead light was burned out and I could not read. The flight was 45 minutes late. Our adjacent flight passengers were told to use the bathroom before they got on the plane because they would only have one working bathroom on the flight. NEVER AGAIN"
Pros: "The flight was relatively cheap, before seating and claiming your bags, carry on or checked luggage."
Cons: "My flight was delayed 3 times until it said it was on time, then once I got to the terminal for my on-time flight, it was delayed 3 hours. A 11:54pm flight became a 2:54am flight. Even the captain had no idea why it was delayed. I missed my train home losing the money I had paid for that, and frontier customer service refused to help make other arrangements. I ended up ubering home, an hour drive. Frontier sent an apology e-mail with a $50 re-emburstment; since my time, missed ride home, and money spent is equivalent to a $50 voucher to their airline. Never again."
Pros: "The crew was very nice."
Cons: "This is definitely the bottom of the heap when it comes to airlines. They offer a competitive price on a flight, but once booked they nickel and dime you until the price is higher than a better airline. They charge for seat choice on the whole plane, snacks and drinks, carry on and checked luggage, and there is no entertainment. Plus the seats felt like cardboard, and didn't recline. Definitely not a good choice for a red eye, or any flight over an hour long. Actually, no matter how short your flight is, you'll probably be more comfortable taking the bus. Two big thumbs down."
Cons: "The day after arriving at our destination, our return trip was canceled: "due to day-of-travel flight cancellation or traveler no-show." I can assure you, we did show; I had the pictures. They tried to put us on an earlier flight, which was not convenient, due to travel plans made 8 months prior, so the return flight was scheduled for the next day (again, inconvenient, due to loss of income). Frontier attempted to charge me for the extra day. After I complained multiple times, they finally waived the additional charge when I reminded them I was NOT the one who canceled the original flight. My daughter and I were provided $100 travel vouchers, each, for the "inconvenience." Frontier can keep their $200."
Pros: "That they held the plane to make my connection"
Cons: "My connection was late, then my ticket was not working and the attendant had to manually check is in. She was EXTREMELY unprofessional even sating tons customer " I can only work as fast as I can DUDE, I'm the only one here" in which I verbally reprimanded her for her unprofessional attitude. Then we sat in the plane for an additionaL HOUR for a "mechanical issue".... which appeared to be them filling up the plane. I am so highly dissatisfied that not only will I never ever book frontier again, but I made sure to review the company in social media and all my friends/family/clients. I don't pretend to understand the airline industry, but I do know BAD BUSINESS when I see it. Absolutely TERRIBLE."
Pros: "the low initial fare"
Cons: "leg space non existent tray table too small, can fit a lunch box carry on policy - there's no carry on allowed"
Cons: "Both flying out and my return flight were inconveniently off schedule. Logistics seems to be a nightmare for you guys. On the way out, we spent about an hour just waiting in the plane after landing, waiting for an open gate. THere were several other Frontier planes waiting on the tarmack as well -all of us stuck in limbo. Flying out, our flight was an hour behind schedule for a seemingly similar problem, the incoming plane had to wait for ever on the tarmack, and by the time they were finally let off the plane, and the plane cleaned and prepped, we were an hour behind. Very frustrating."
Cons: "Boarding - people who sit up front go first meaning that those that have seats in the back have to go in past people who are still in the aisles arranging themselves. I could not get a drink of water without paying. Is it really that esxpensive to give a coke and some peanuts??? Paying for seat selection means that some people get in the seats other peoiple want (like window seats) who don't want them. I tryly believe that Frontier is the nickel and diming airline. And I don't believe you had to wait for a gate and 11:30 at night."
Cons: "My girlfriend and I struck up a conversation with a woman sitting next to us in our row about an hour into the flight. About 10 minutes after that we notice the woman in front of us is glaring at us, writhing around in histrionics, holding her ears, cursing to her husband and basically making every passenger around her look at each other wondering "what is going on with this woman"? Finally this woman turns around and is staring at us. I ask her if there is a problem, and she replies "yeah. There is. You're saying "like" too much. Can you just shut up?". Wrong thing to say to me. I called her a few choice words which I won't repeat, then her husband gets his tough guy act going, by this time everyone around our seats are uncomfortable at the rising confrontation. The flight crew come over and try to move them, but they refuse to move. My girlfriend and I end up moving our seats to avoid the flight being diverted and ruining everyone else's plans. For the last hour of the trip we sat seperately in the back of the plane. Once I moved I was speaking to an older couple next to me about their plans, showing a visiting family the features of the New York skyline as we landed and giving them advice on traveling in NYC, so apparently my voice didn't cause anyone else who wasn't either drunk or crazy to begin an argument with me. I know the issue has nothing to do with kayak or the airline, just a maladjusted few people that can't be in public, but that was hands down the worst flight I have ever had."
Pros: "That they got me to my destination safely."
Cons: "This airline is a joke. Shame on me for booking late and choosing the cheapest ticket. BUT knowing what I now know, I would have selected the Delta flight for $80 more. Here's why: No TSA Pre-Check. This aspects alone is a deal breaker. Pay for carry-on bag AND IT COSTS $40. Pay for beverages, snacks. Seats don't recline - "pre-reclined for your maximum comfort." Whatever Tray table is metal and tiny. You couldn't even fit an iPad mini on it, let alone a lap top. So, I put my MacBook on my lap to work, but it's uncomfortable, MacBook slides off. You're hitting the person next to you with your elbows. AND I have to take off my jacket, to protect my MacBook against hitting the metal tray table, so I got cold. No internet. It's 2016. No internet. It's 2016. Never again."
Cons: "First time flying Frontier. Great advertised rate round trip Sea to Denver $140 vs next best AK at $170. Receive email to pick seat, Suprise... They cost $9-36 each way, no mention of free seats if you just show up and go open seating. also Suprise# 2 carrying are $40 each way. I choose $18 seats and had a carry on so total trip ended up being $140 + $126 in a frontier gotcha money an increase in fare of almost double. I did find out about the seat chafe scam before checking in and asked to just go open seat.....uhh no. So how much would the Alaska Air trip have been....$170 plus $0 for assigned seat and $0 for carry on so $170. So fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me.... Their will not be a twice and I suggest Kayak add some notes to fares to avoid future bilking by Frontier."
Pros: "I used to love flying Frontier—the airline with the cute animals on the tail of the planes. Now I call them the F word in airlines. If you want to fly Frontier, I want to make sure you’re forewarned. Their slogan is “A different kind of animal.” This animal is very cunning. And slightly savage. First, if you’ve been suckered into their $59 airfares, you already know what’s waiting for you. Wait. You actually want to fly back home? Well you’ll end up paying the same price as you would most any other airline. But wait…what’s this? Actually, their rates are about $100 cheaper than normal. What they don’t tell you is, they charge $30 for you to carry on your own baggage. I always thought it was ludicrous to charge me to carry my own bag onto a plane. Keep in mind that’s one way. So it’s $60 round trip. And that’s their discounted rate if you book online. It goes way up if you’re one of the unfortunates who wait till you’re at the kiosk to settle up with the Frontier Friskers. Oh, you say you want to actually choose your seat? That’s $13 minimum. For each leg of your trip. Don’t be surprised if they figure out a way to charge you for each leg of your body. That’s for a normal seat. If you don’t cough up the $13, they’ll randomly seat you wherever they want. I wouldn’t be surprised if they counted the lavatory as a possibility. So, that’s $60 for your own carry-on luggage. And a minimum $26 if you dare to choose your own cheap seat. Hmm. That $100 savings is looking rather slim right now. Speaking of slim, that describes their seats. And they don’t recline. You’re straight upright your whole trip. And the padding is about as comfortable as a cheap mattress in a cheap motel. The best way I can describe the feeling: Say you’re on Sesame Street and your job is to sit on the capital letter ‘L” for two hours. So while spending what feels like an eternity in L, maybe you’d like something to quench your thirst. That’s $1.99. Water? $1.99. A snack? $2.99. I’m surprised they don’t charge for toilet paper. By the square. (To be fair, I just learned that a cup of water is actually free. “For today,” said the flight attendant. “That could change.”) Nice Surprise: The people who work for Frontier are generally nice. But if this is the way Frontier treats their customers, how do they treat their employees? Do they make their mechanics buy their own tools? I wrote to the company to let them know how hugely disappointed I am with their changes. I never got the courtesy of a reply. I somehow like to imagine the CEO, in the true spirit of “no frills”, answering each customer letter by himself on an Olivetti typewriter from the 1970s. But I kind of doubt it. So there you have it. To be forewarned is to be forearmed. And if you have four arms, well, you might just fit their new slogan. Frontier Airlines: A whole different way to treat people like animals."
Cons: "Frontier's low fares which are deceptive. They charge you $60 for carrying your own bag! They charge you $13 per leg for the "privilege" of choosing your seat--even the normal seats. They charge you $1.99 for basic sodas offered by most every other airline for free. And they charge you $2.99 per snack. The seat are slim, terribly uncomfortable with virtually no padding and they don't recline! They don't respond when you write them."
Pros: "overall the aircraft and schedule was ok"
Cons: "Our luggage did not arrive at our destination. It was an absolute nightmare to get it back!! I had to call the airline about 50 times, where most of the calls were not answered. I had to keep calling and following up. When the luggage did come they only delivered one of the 2 pieces. The calling marathon had to be resumed most of which went unanswered! We finally had to rely on the delivery company to provide alternate numbers where there was a possibility to get an answer. Absolute nightmare!!! Never never will I travel this airline."
Pros: "Finally landing at 2:00 am with my luggage finally showing up"
Cons: "1. 4:30pm flight had a FOUR hour delay!! No communication as to why. Empty plane finally arrived. 2. Got back east at 2am on a Sunday night, yet still had a long wait in an abandoned airport for luggage. 3. Got scammed by LOW ticket price, and then RIPPED OFF by exorbitant baggage fees...bringing the low price right back up there. 4. I could have paid another airline the same $$, and gotten FREE water and a magazine! Nickel and dimed everything. 5. Difficult to rate staff, because with no service, no interaction...except to 'fasten your seatbelt'. Boarding was boarding. Nothing to rate. 6. Offered $$ off my next flight b/c of the delay, but it expired in 60 days...REALLY? Yeah, the average Joe who flies this airline will SURELY be traveling again in a few months. LAME. Not worth the risk of flying this airline again, IMO."
Pros: "That I thought ahead and brought ear plugs so I could sleep part of the way."
Cons: "First of all, I think it's funny that you don't give the option of n/a for food and entertainment for those of us smart enough not to pay EVEN MORE for stuff that's listed in the ticket price on other flights. Really, avoiding free peanuts and soda is putting that many billions into the CEO's pockets?! Again, the boarding process seems like it was purposely made to be more horrible than it ever needs to be. I felt like steerage with the seats being so extremely close together. Again, the training of your flight attendance needs work. This flight a passenger asked about the seats reclining and the FA said they're "pre-reclined". Really?! That is extremely insulting."
Cons: "I arrived at the airport 2 and 1/2 hours early for my flight... When I get there the line to just check a bag is swirling around the airport. I was disappointed I'd have to wait in said line but I went to the end to start the process of getting it done. About 30 mins into this line one of your employees starts calling off flights ones I'm assuming wee leaving soon so those people got to cut to the front of the line. A respectable thing but also very frustrating for the people actually waiting in line because it stopped movement completely. After they get those people out the line starts moving again but the one person controlling the line leaves and the people in the back feel untitled to bumrush forward and open up one of the crowd control polls and get to the front at which point everyone else is stuck to wait for the back of the line to go first. No one stopped them just let them go right ahead and make me wait. So at this point I've been at the airport for about an 1 hour and 15 mins. Not even through the line. As I approach the front finally an employee comes out and closes the crowd control line that made it possible for everyone to cut when I pointed that out they gave me excuses and were very rude. My flight was boarding in the next 45 mins and closing gates in the next hour or so. Next they start calling flights again ones that need to get through because they won't make their flight if they won't. My flight home is one of those. I'm at the front of the line so I figured I'd just be allowed to check my bag and get going but instead she lets people that I watched walk in less then 15 minutes ago go in front of me. I was furious I had been waiting 1 and 1/2 hours and people who showed up 15 mins ago are probably going to make MY flight while I wont.. I point this out to the lady and she says I'm just trying to get everyone to their flights and I do appreciate that but they were going about it all wrong. I finally checked my bag with probably 40 mins to spare before doors open to board and 1 hour before doors close. I turn the corner to look at security and feel defeat because I know there's no way I'll realistically make it through I turn around to talk to a supervisor about what she can do.. Get me on another flight? At least tell me they will work on their tactics of the bag check line. But instead the supervisor tells me that I have to try to get through security and that its my problem and they will deal with me at the gate if I don't make it. I hurry into line at security and we are not moving. All of a sudden the security line starts picking up because they brought the dogs out. I get through security with about 3 mins to spare I start running I get to my gate on the dot of gate close and the only reason I made it is because of delays due to maintenance which I had asked to reseive updates on my flight that wasn't given to me."
Pros: "I checked in at the ticket counter paid for my bag and then went to the gate. I waited two hours and then started to board the plane they scanned my ticket and I began to walk down the aisle. I was then stopped and told I could not fly in less I paid $60 for my carry-on !!!! I have flown with the exact same carry-on multiple times and never paid for it this is absurd and I want my refund ! Frontier airlines is a horrible company with terrible customer service I will never fly with them again and I want my refund for my bag. I was a long-term customer however I am disgusted with my recent flight !"

Pros: "I just plain like the Frontier method as it has been done for years. The pricing, seating, employees and most everything else just works."
Cons: "I've traveled with Frontier for years and on previous flights to DCA, I thought I should blame the baggage claim delay on the airport. Now I am told it is a Frontier responsibility and I am livid. It gets worse every trip. This time it took an hour to get our bags and it was clearly unnecessary. The first bags came out at about 30 minutes, but after that they dribbled out with no explanation whatsoever. Someone is a real laggard and they need to be fired! This experience was so bad that it takes precedence over our previous beefs. Boarding could be much better from back to front and the new seats are terrible, but like I said, if the baggage could be fixed, I would be willing to concede a few. At this point, I am ready to jump ship to Southwest."
Pros: "Getting OFF the plane"
Cons: "The new seats are flat out terrible. They're thin, poorly padded, and uncomfortable after only 15 minutes of sitting on them. I'm 6'-4", tall, but not a giant and my knees were against the seat in front of me. Legroom was nonexistent. When the stewardesses came through with food and beverages, it was $2 for a can of soda. So after paying an extra $30 to check one bag, and then paying ridiculous prices for a can of soda, and getting cramps after a 2-hour flight with no legroom, Frontier has moved to the bottom of my list for any future flights."
Cons: "AWFUL. I arrived at the airport 1 hour and 10 minutes before my flight. I attempted to check in at a kiosk, which failed and I was told to line up to see a clerk. I got in the ticketing/check-in line and was waiting for a while when a clerk asks if anyone was flying to San Diego and that they were in the wrong line. I was redirected to the additional services line, and when I finally saw the clerk, was told that I had missed the 45 minute check-in deadline. They refused to help me look for another flight, and was told my ticket was nonrefundable even though the misdirection was the airline's fault and their lack of communication. They should've posted signs if passengers on a specific flight needed to be in a specific line for check-in. Furthermore, their lack of willingness to rectify the situation was just a poor demonstration of customer service. I will definitely not be flying with Frontier ever again."
