Pros: "A Flight attendant went beyond the call of duty when she found me after I had returned to my seat. This was after I had walked to the rear of the acft to work out a bad cramp in my thigh. She provided me with a hot water bottle that did wonders in relieving the pain and stopped the cramp from returning."
Cons: "I don't like the fact that I didn't take the time to remember her name."

Pros: "The crew was great. The flight was basically beyond max capacity in terms of food & bathroom but they handled it well."
Cons: "- Ran out of food. There were a lot of people asking to buy food but no food available. - Crazy lines to the bathroom -- the plane was probably too small for the number of people and the length of the flight?"

Pros: "Easy boarding. Friendly staff."
Cons: "Wish they had lids for kids drinks. Guy in front of our kid slammed his seat back and spilled a full cup of sprite on our autistic child but he took it pretty well. I know the airline can’t control passengers but a lid would’ve minimized the spill."

Pros: "Leg space!!!! Finally some room 4 my long legs! Food excellent. I ate cheese & fruit plate. Delicious! Good timing. Great!! Left & arrived in time OR EARLY!"
Cons: "Once plane landed, it took 4ever 2 get out."

Pros: "Ease and great service"
Cons: "No good available very No entertainment"

Cons: "Our 10:15 a.m. flight was delayed until 11:45 a.m. - we had arrived at the airport too early and ended up waiting a long time in a crowded and noisy terminal that lacked sufficient seats for all the travelers at the gate (Gates 11, etc.)"

Pros: "Early departure and very early arrival"
Cons: "Sits did not recline at all on 5 hour flight. 5 hour flight with one 1 by 2 inch cookie. Glad I had my own food!"

Pros: "The crew was pleasant and helpful. Flight on time."
Cons: "I wish they would have included a meal or something more substantial than soft drinks/juice on a long flight."

Pros: "1) Attendant crew was nice. 2) Appreciated being able to board from front and rear."
Cons: "1) Flight time delayed, so late arrival ~12am was made even later ~12:30am 2) Booked two tickets together months ago, yet we were not allowed to sit together. 3) Entertainment required the downloading of the gogo app which should have been done on the ground with wifi and/or cellular data. in the air, one window said you could (wait) and download, while another window effectively said, "better luck next time". Pre-flight email should have warned passengers to download beforehand. 4) Exiting plane only allowed from front; took forever from our next-to-last row."

Cons: "We left 4 hours later than expected. Didn't get home until the wee hours."

Pros: "Nice flight attendants, and the flight on the way home was not overbooked, which was lovely!"

I was happy to do what they said, but it would be nice if they were more consistent about the bag sizes. I didn't have this problem on the way back to Seattle though."

Pros: "Free Movie selection; plag in devices"
Cons: "Nothing. Everything was great"

Pros: "That the flight was right on time with no delays."
Cons: "The change of gate for departure."

Cons: "The flight was overbooked. We changed gates at the last minute and we weren't confirmed until after other passengers had boarded. Flight was delayed an hour because of this."

Pros: "What a pleasure to fly with Alaska Airlines. Have yet to feel like I was an imposition with traveling with AA. Thanks for letting me feel like a client rather than a bother. Virgin Air and AA will be a happy merge, I believe. Keep your work ethic and soar even higher!"

Cons: "they need to prepare more for emergency situations alaska airlines need to provide bigger jets for flights longer than three hours"

Cons: "There were a couple of children who were crying and screaming almost the whole time, but that isn't the airlines fault and I realize that. Other than that, the flight was good."

Pros: "Friendly staff"

Pros: "The Alaska airlines people are very pleasant and helpful, I always fly Alaska when I travel to Hawaii. They seem to get there earlier than scheduled , I like that!"

Pros: "Great flight with Alaskan Airlines as always."
Cons: "No free movies or any other free forms of entertainment despite a long cross country flight. One of the male crew members - don't know his name - was rather rude and would only allow me to have one cup of water and no coffee despite my having purchased a cheese platter."

Pros: "The flight attendants were great , so kind and helped us pick out snacks/drinks."
Cons: "How rude the people were around us. I felt really bad for the flight attendants and clean up crew :( . no one on that flight seemed to listen to the illuminated signs except for flight attendants and my row ."

Pros: "Standard Air France flight. My wife and I like the Airbus 380."
Cons: "The flight left two hours late. Apparently this happens a lot with this flight these days because it's an Airbus 380 coming from Paris to Dulles and turning around. The incoming flight was two hours late, so the departure was late. Our arrival in Paris was late. We made the flight, but our luggage didn't. Our return flight from Paris to Dulles was half an hour late because of people from connecting flights. We arrived about 30 minutes late, but no big deal (unless you had a connection)"

Pros: "The flight was great & so was the cruise. Unfortunately my luggage is back in Atlanta & I’m in Ft Laurderdale heading on a cruise tomorrow without my belongings"
Cons: "Not even given a toothbrush or tee shirt to sleep in."

Pros: "Fly attenden alwas with a beautiful smile"

Cons: "Left 30 minutes late from SLC."

Pros: "Nothing particularly stands out. I did arrive safely."
Cons: "First class did not come with lounge access? Drinks were not cold. Bathrooms were falling apart and came with a disgusting odor. Time to retire these aircrafts."

Pros: "Flight attendants were nice based on the situations beyond their control."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for about three hours, due to mechanical issues with the second engine not starting. We sat on the the plane for over an hour and half. Some people that missed their connection flights were offered hotel stay. Others that had no connection flight was not offered anything for the several hours of delay that occurred."

Cons: "Tv"

Pros: "The crew was super friendly and shout out to Brady, he really helped me out of a TIGHT situation :-)"
Cons: "Felt bad for the crew being under pressure as they got off a flight and had to rush to ours....."

Cons: "The monitors kept on freezing"

Pros: "The chekc in person was very helpful."
Cons: "The plane was too hot and the pilot did not accommodate the passengers request. More than just me made the same request."

Pros: "That I landed safely"
Cons: "1st class was horrible."

Cons: "I have traveled with my luggage plenty of times through airports and the flight from washington to jacksonville, my luggage came back to me cracked and broken. I was surprised that Delta handling was worse than any of the cheaper flights I normally take and will not be checking any baggage with Delta again."

Pros: "Great and friendly crew"
Cons: "baggage rules, check in with baggage, change fee for flight when it was not customers issue that caused the 5 min delay! Unable to reach reservation desk on line or via phone (neither was the gate agent)"

Cons: "Seeing as I’m still waiting for my flight, more than five hours later I am not inclined to rank it highly. This airport is an embarrassment and I will try my best to never fly Delta again. Weather is no excuse for this."

Pros: "My flight was canceled but Delta rebooked me on a flight leaving at about the same time as my original flight, which arrived just a little later than originally anticipated"
Cons: "My original flight was canceled"

Pros: "Crew were excellent"
Cons: "Flight delayed 45 minutes"

Cons: "Due to the earthquakes, the film festival I was going to was cancelled. Ten days prior to the flight I called AeroMexico to cancel and they said there would be a cancellation penalty, which was fine. When I tried to redeem my credit, they said there was also an additional "No-show fee" even though I called to cancel 10 days prior, which left a total of $70 credit after all their penalties. I called and emailed to complain but they did nothing but pass me to someone else who was equally unhelpful. I will never fly AeroMexico for any reason in the future."

Cons: "Delayed two hours"

Pros: "Got to my placs"
Cons: "Lol put the two fattest people next to each other"

Pros: "The fact that there were no snakes on this plane :-)"
Cons: "Same issue... there were no snakes on the plane :-/"

Pros: "Entertainment options"
Cons: "Tight space"

Pros: "For a short flight, they gave it drinks and snacks."

Pros: "Flight attendants and cookies. That's it."
Cons: "We left DC late because of Delta's inefficient boarding process. We landed in Atlanta late. Our flight to Sioux Falls left early, without us. My pregnant wife and I made it to the gate 4 minutes before the scheduled departure and they told us the plane was already gone and there was no way for us to get on the plane. Our bags did make it to Sioux Falls, so my wife didn't have her prenatal vitamins, , we had no clean clothes and we were forced to spend the night in Atlanta. The saddest part of yet another terrible experience with Delta was that they offered us a "discounted" room at a terrible Howard Johnson for $72. I looked online and the same hotel was $65 to book on Kayak. So basically Delta was trying to scam us after they screwed us. Thanks Delta! Instead we paid $200+ to stay at an airport hotel. Every time I fly Delta I regret it, yet occasionally I get forced to take their awful airline to get somewhere I need to go. It never fails to add another bad Delta experience to my long list of failings from this SAD!!! airline."

Pros: "Crew was courtesy"
Cons: "1hour delay from departing LAX runway - not good"

Cons: "There delay"

Pros: "Flight was delayed for over 6 hours. Not an ideal way to spend the day."

Pros: "The crews were very friendly and everything went as planned. It was a nice flight."

Cons: "I didnt like that my flight was canceled and rebooked for no reason. This created me big problem in Athens that they couldnt find my ticket in delta. Also I didnt like that i had to stand and wait for 3 hours in the line because my flight was canceled but no one could let us know if there gonna be any flights within the day. I slept in the airport because i couldnt find a hotel to spend the night close to the airport. They were all full and i had no time to find one since I was waiting there for 3 hours with no informational. I slept on the floor and delta didnt even offer us a blanket. That was my worst trip ever."

Pros: "The flight was smooth and the food selection was surprising delicious. The crew was very attentive."
Cons: "The leg room was much less than the last time I flew Virgin (booked via Delta) and made for an uncomfortable trip. Could not sleep as a result. If you're tall like me you'll need to book a higher seating category."

Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Nothing everything was fine"

Cons: "paying extra for leg room and checked bags"

Pros: "We barely got on the flight."
Cons: "The boarding "red shirt" saved us. We are a band on tour and thanks to her we made the gig"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Being scammed by the Chinese, China Southern"

Pros: "Our flight was cancelled and we had to buy $447 worth of Southwest tickets to get home. Our luggage is still missing, by the way."

Pros: "Delayed by 55 minutes in 10 or 20 minute increments as they waited for a crew."

Pros: "Arrived 45 minutes early"
Cons: "Boarding very slow Seats not comfortable"

Pros: "The crew was super nice, everything ran smoothly and the aircraft was clean."
Cons: "This was my first time using this airline and you get what you pay for. Honestly I don't mind paying bag fees and food, but paying to choose a seat next to my husband was a little much."

Cons: "I rode first class and usually do. The gals were TERRIBLE. They were nice but they were so bad at their job. I was systematically served last and didn't have a drink until hours had gone by. It was a joke. I was laughing by the end of the ride at their incompetence. horrible flight."

Pros: "On time and nice spacious cabins"
Cons: "The seats are uncomfortable"

Pros: "The staff was great. Friendly, helpful, and efficient."
Cons: "Cramped seats. No wifi or entertainment. Felt nickel and dimed with my complimentary water."

Pros: "flight arrived on time"
Cons: "Flight arrived on time sat on tarmac for an hour waiting for a gate. Checked luggage took another hour. three hours in destination airport before we could get to our car. this airline sucks the big weenie!!"

Pros: "left on time"
Cons: "arrived 40 min late. uncomfortable seat. seat area too small. price is not the price. baggage took forever. never again"

Pros: "Boarding process was fast. Flight left on time. Crew were polite and helpful. Bathroom was clean and odorless."
Cons: "Seat didn't recline! So uncomfortable. Non-alcoholic drinks should be free. Crew should let passengers onow about "happy hour" drinks and deals available...I would have purchased one."

Pros: "The Regan airport is pretty nice."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed enough that we knew we would miss our connection. They were not very helpful and we had no good options available. We were basically stuck with only bad options. No one offered compensation or even to wave the surprise fees for seats and for baggage. This was after they lost our luggage on our way out to Washington!! With no compensation or apology. We will never fly Frontier again - it was a huge fiasco."

Cons: "Despite the missed connection the woman at the ticket counter insisted that I would be charged for a carry on bag. I flew American instead and will be seeking a refund."

Pros: "Everything was efficient, smooth flight, and we landed--that's a good flight, right? We even landed 30 minutes ahead of schedule, which was great since I had to wait at the baggage carousel."
Cons: "It was my first time flying with Frontier and I didn't know about the bag charges and seat charges--that's on me though. Not sure I will fly with them again, as waiting for what COULD have been my carry-on at the carousel took so much time... then again, it makes it easier and quicker to board and de-board. But the seat charges were still ridiculous. Wish drinks and like, pretzels could be free just so we don't deplane with harsh breath."

Pros: "All was on time, crew was friendly, emergency on board was handled well."
Cons: "The seats are not movable, so you could not lean back a little. No screen for entertainment, tray table was less than half the normal size, uselss, snack choices, had little that one might consider healthy. A lot of junk food, and a huge offering of alcoholic beverages. Could we maybe have healthier food. It could still be pre-packaged somehow. Cost of carry on: $30. Checked suitcase: $25. That did not really make any sense, other than they make more money that way. Also irritating that if you want to have a specific seat, rather than waiting for what you might get at the airport, you have to call them, and pay $13 for a seat reservation. They are nickel and diming you, or rather in dollars. It is a rip off."

Pros: "On time smooth flight."
Cons: "New aircraft seats are very hard and don't recline."

Pros: "Smooth flight. No mechanical problems."
Cons: "No free food or drinks. Not even a coke. No inflight movie. Staff seems to be all from Africa and have poor language skills. Sat on Tarmac for 20 minutes after arrival - no gate available, and waited 45 more minutes for the luggage to get to the baggage claim carosel."

Cons: "I specifically searched for IAD (Dulles) and you returned results for DCA (Reagan) I think you need to have some type of confirmation window so that people realize that you have switched airports on them."

Pros: "Arrived 15 min Early"

Pros: "The staff were pleasant. The flight was on time."
Cons: "The fact that I called because of the storm in Washington DC the airport was closed and my flight kept getting canceled. One flight I had on a Monday--I called and was told that it was canceled. I later learned that it was not canceled. I called back and was told that it was not canceled but that all the seats were gone., So I was not happy."

Pros: "Service was excellent at check in. and staff was excelllent."
Cons: "Was not pleased with the baggage fees."

Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "The seats r very uncomfortable"

Pros: "Price. Online. On time. Clean. Efficient."
Cons: "Paying for seat. Paying for luggage."

Pros: "possibly the smoothest landing I've experienced!"
Cons: "seats don't recline? what?!"

Pros: "fair price"
Cons: "very uncomfortable since the seats don't recline back. refreshment, how cheap you should serve refreshments expensive baggage check"

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "When we obtained our boarding passes, the Assistant could not speak English very well and kept pointing at our computer screen from behind her desk-thanks, but we didn't need her help. Upon boarding, we were taken aside to have our bags checked. We were told that both bags needed to be checked, and it would be $60 per bag, total $120. We were not told why because again, the Assistants could not speak English. They again, just pointed at the sign on the side of their desk and to the bag measurements. One of the bags fit in the overhead compartment, and we were not told why we had to pay for it to be checked. The flight was at most 60% full. There was plenty of overhead space. On top of all of this, when we checked in for departure with the same airline, the Assistant told us both of our bags were free because the person with whom I was traveling was military!!"

Pros: "Staftt Service"
Cons: "Poor seats with no cushion No beverages served on flight"

Cons: "It seems like the cheap option but they nickel and dime you on everything so you'll end up paying more in the end. The seats are uncomfortable, no entertainment options, and the crew is the worst."

Cons: "Frontier is an awful scam of an airline."

Pros: "Wish they had free snacks."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Customers service"

Pros: "Ticket price"
Cons: "Pay extra for everything!"

Pros: "Friendly staff. The tray tables are god awful. They need to be bigger and with a latch. How are we supposed to study and do work. Useless. I was charged for everything. Frontier is Queen at hidden fees. No thanks, not a great airline."

Cons: "Big delay in baggage. $10 glass of wine."

Pros: "Simple straightforward."
Cons: "Will remember next time carry on bags round trip add extra $100 to fare. Seems deceptive."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Frontier is the worse airline I ever flown with. The customer service was horrible. Not to mention, my flight was delayed by two hours because the plane was too heavy to fly. I understand the delay and the need to fly safely, however NO ONE would give the passengers updates. We sat on the plane on the tarmac for two hours not knowing when we were going to take off or status of connecting flights. In the interim, I missed my connecting flight and was stuck and delayed yet again"

Cons: "Having to pay for carry on baggage and to choose a seat is ridiculous. Will never fly Frontier again. Seats were uncomfortable."

Pros: "This trip was affordable and on schedule, which is all I need. I will be watching Frontier fares in the future"

Pros: "Boarded quickly"
Cons: "Chairs dont recline and you nade nepay 40 dollars for carry on."

Pros: "good legroom"
Cons: "uncomfortable seats, small trays"

Pros: "staff was nice"
Cons: "i think it is ridiculous to have to pay extra for carry on bags and a seat. the ticket was not any cheaper than other airlines."

Pros: "I cancelled my flight a day after I purchased my ticket. The wait on the phone was ridiculous, 45 min. Come on, the customer service could have been much better."

Cons: "I was involuntarily bumped off of the flight. They were extremely slow in rebooking and did not put me on the next available flight, but rather on a flight that was 24 hr later. They did not pay my baggage fees so I had to spend extra money on food and luggage for my delay. When I went to recollect my luggage from them, no one was there at the counter and they were not responsive via phone. I have yet to receive an email for my voucher."

Cons: "2 hour delay on tarmac b/c they had to add additional fuel for weather. Kicked passengers off b/c of the extra weight, but not enough to allow us to take off in the normal direction from DCA. Had to wait an extra hour on the tarmac to fly the opposite way. Ridiculous."

Pros: "Frontier's new seats are incredibly uncomfortable"

Cons: "Perhaps I should have - but I did not know that with Frontier airlines, you have to pay for every little thing. I booked Frontier because I wanted to take my daughters to see their Grandpa, perhaps for the last time and this was the best price I found. It wasn't a huge savings, but like many families every little bit helps. So you can imagine my surprise when we go to check in and I find I have to pay $45/ bag. And of course, this will happen both ways. So my savings just went far out the window."

Pros: "Guy playing music in terminal"
Cons: "The seating, they should probably tell you up front that when you pay the extra $50 for a seat with leg room that the ones in the exit isle do not recline. It is utter nonsense that those seats cost so much to be more uncomfortable than any other seat on the plane"

Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "Hidden fee for carry on bags that wasn't mentioned until arrival at airport. Added $90 to a roundtrip ticket, won't be booking with Frontier again. Uncomfortable seats. Overpriced food & drink. $2.99 for a fun-size Pringles?"

Cons: "Extra baggage fees of $75 feels like bait and switch Had to wait 50 minutes at baggage claim for luggage. Poor experience."

Pros: "Both flights left on time and arrived early."
Cons: "The seats are small and fixed in a mostly upright position. There weren't many options for food, and no entertainment."

Pros: "Inexpensive, quick"
Cons: "The seats were fixed, tiny and I was uncomfortable the whole time."

Pros: "It was a quick direct flight."
Cons: "Hidden charges for everything. Want to pick your seat when you check in? (Not whwn you book.) $20. Want to bring a bag with you? $25 Want a cup of coffee on the 4 hour flight?? $2 I guess Frontier is Spirit airlines now - just a huge bus."

Pros: "Initial price"
Cons: "Crowded seats, no legroom, seats don't recline, extra charges for baggage including carry-ons, poor selection of food, uncomfortable upholstery on the seat,"
