Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Crew and actual flight were good."
Cons: "When booking the flight, the only seats that showed as available were premium seats that I had to pay $150 extra for each way. Upon boarding I saw that there were many, many seats available so I spent that money for nothing."
Cons: "Flight was canceled again with no notification and no compensation was offered."
Pros: "Being on time, then early! A clean plane, and boarding from the rear first. An airline has finally caught a clue on boarding the rear of the plane and window seats first! Hello!"
Cons: "My flight from Seattle to spokane was cancelled and then reinstalled but I had no boarding pass and had to get the ticket at the main desk before catching my connection. By the time I got through the line the flight was already gone"
Pros: "Everything was smoothe from the time I got to the airport from check in to boarding. Flight was short and pilot warned us about a possible bit of rough air before we ever took off."
Cons: "Seats are getting smaller and smaller while prices are growing exponentially. These seats are even smaller than United flights, and they had next to no padding."
Pros: "Entertainment, modern aircraft"
Cons: "Rude and uninterested flight crew, undisclosed bulkhead mid aircraft"
Cons: "Great short flight."
Pros: "Fast and very friendly staff."
Pros: "Gate attended kept us posted on what was going on when our flight was delayed. So wasn't left wondering what was going on"
Pros: "Flight arrived in time to make connecting flight easy tomake."
Cons: "Sat for nearly an hour upon boarding while "problems with caterer" were worked out. It is already a long time to sit in a restricted space. Please don't make it even longer. Also, socializing by attendants at rear of aircraft made any chance of napping impossible."
Cons: "Flight delayed 10 hours due to mechanical problems. They said they could not rebook passengers on alt flights because all flights were booked. Yet when I went on kayak they were still selling seats on these fflghts. This was unconscionable before a long five hour flight to make a 70 year old women sit in an airport with 290 others when their were other options or were the airlines just overselling again so they could boot people off the plane?"
Pros: "Such a short flight, 37 minutes. Just oj or water. All else great."
Pros: "Landed safely."
Cons: "Extremely long wait before takeoff. If the plane hasn't been inspected and readied for take-off why board passengers and make them sit in the cramped uncomfortable seats?"
Pros: "Everything went exactly on schedule, all good."
Cons: "Captain said they were expecting heavy turbulence, no service that flight. It was actually one of the more smooth flights I've taken in the last 20 years. I guess it's hard to know exactly what to expect weather wise."
Cons: "30 min delay"
Pros: "Warm and gracious crew"
Pros: "booked flight accidentally at pm hours instead of am hours and alaska airlines fixed it friendly and for free and im happy of online service and availability"

Pros: "Everything was great. I was on a regional flight so I didn't try any food and their was no entertainment but everything ran very smoothly. Very pleased."

Pros: "Staff was friendly not to helpful"
Cons: "I wish staff would allow moms flying with small children to get their check at the gate items first before single traveling adults. So moms don't have small children wondering around the Tarmac while the mom trying to watch them and fight through a crowd to get car seats and bags."

Cons: "It was too cold."
Pros: "Very smooth process."

By the time I got to Spokane they had restored my faith that , there are people who work on the airlines that are kind not grumpy! And know how to make you feel welcome. I am an auctioneer and travel doing sales , and when you only cater to your (FIRST CLASS) people as on the first leg of this flight it is pretty sad!"
Pros: "I was trapped by security and almost missed my flight, however they were very accommodating and let me on. Super Thankful!!!"

Pros: "Crew and entertainment options were great."
Cons: "Cabin was very loud, with jet engine noise. Could not block it out. Seats were not comfortable."
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: "Fly attenden alwas with a beautiful smile"
Pros: "Nice plane, comfortable accommodations, great crew."
Cons: "There was anything I didn’t like about the flight, everything was great!"
Pros: "Nothing particularly stands out. I did arrive safely."

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."
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."
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"
Cons: "Delayed two hours"
Pros: "Flight was faster than expected, comfy seats, check in was fast and easy."
Pros: "Got to my placs"

Pros: "Above feedback is for the MSP to GEG flight"
Pros: "The fact that there were no snakes on this plane :-)"
Cons: "Same issue... there were no snakes on the plane :-/"
Cons: "We were delayed due to the air conditioning not working. So, it was a tad warm in the cabin. It would've been nice to have someone coming around with water making our delay a little more comfortable."
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."
Cons: "There delay"
Pros: "On Time"
Pros: "On time"
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."
Cons: "Never again!"
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: "Very late flight. Left on time, arrived 25 minutes early! Cabin crew were friendly and cared for everybody's comfort. They distributed a lot of extra munchies. They had real almonds instead of the usual 1/3 ounce peanuts, isn't that wonderful? Lights went off early and stayed that way so that the passengers could easily sleep through the flight. Uneventful flight, and therefore enjoyable."
Cons: "I had chosen 10C in the Comfort+ section of this MD90 plane. I did get my knee bumped more than once. I still like the seat because I can stretch my legs, but people should be aware of the bumping issue; it can be rather painful, and you do not get an apology."
Pros: "We liked the personalized tv screens on the back of each chair that allowed us to watch free movies. The flight crew was very nice as well."
Cons: "We were delayed on our first leg of the flight so go into SL late but was relieved to see that our second leg was also running about 30 minutes late. Made for a very late night getting home and needing to be to work the next morning."
Pros: "Got delayed due to the computer shutdown"
Cons: "Being scammed by the Chinese, China Southern"
Cons: "My seating. Location. We checked in 22 hrs before the flight and received C4 c5"
Pros: "Relatively painless."
Cons: "I do not like the seating and the need to be on a regional jet for more than an hour. Delta should think about passenger comfort when they consider their bottom line. You'll lose me as a customer."
Pros: "Smooth flight, friendly attendants. We had exit Sears so great legroom."
Cons: "Sears not assigned until boarding."
Pros: "Seriously, all was great. Usually is. Love Delta"
Pros: "Kind crew."
Cons: "It took only 20 minutes to fly there but 20 minutes waiting to get off the ground in 25 minutes to circle around Philadelphia before landing. Not good when they reduce the size of the seats to 17 inches most people shoulders are wider than that. No food service no snack no drink and just snarky empl"
Cons: "on time departure"
Pros: "Was not long enough"
Pros: "AA desk counter were v helpful"
Cons: "they are perfect in what they do"
Pros: "It was 3 hours delayed"
Cons: "Fly in time"
Cons: "maintenance. We left late due to a maintenance issue. Once the flight attendant notification alarm went off for 15 minutes."
Pros: "Crew tried very hard."
Cons: "Delays. Get on the bus. Get off the bus. Get back on the bus."
Cons: "Flight was delayed, but there was clear weather in both Boston and DC. Did not get home until after 1 AM, completely exhausted."
Cons: "This flight was delayed by almost 5 hours. While I understand there are some delays sometimes, this was the ONLY flight to Greensboro out of DCA, and the times kept changing throughout the day, even though the gate agents knew that the issue was that the crew was delayed. There should be backup crew available and when there are delays, the passengers should be kept informed. There should be other flight options available when this happens. I never received an apology from anyone I encountered throughout the process, and some personnel were rude even though I was polite."
Pros: "Perfect from start to finish"
Pros: "Liked sitting in the bigger leg room. Short flight was a bonus."
Cons: "Sat on tarmac a lot at both airports. They boarded all 9 groups so back to back, there was almost no line speration."
Pros: "Plane and fact that pilot was able to make up lost time"
Cons: "Plane had plenty of room for carry on bags. No need for valet bag check."
Pros: "The crew was helpful and fast in turning plane over."
Cons: "Flight delayed from 1015 pm departure to 1135pm, so I had to making my arrival at 1am. Hard are the person picking me up. Despite the fact that they moved my flight they closed the Aa lounge at 10 and kick you out, even though they moved my flight"
Pros: "Vegetarian meal was actually good!"
Cons: "They didn’t give me ice cream :("
Pros: "Although the flight was short, everything worked as it should have."
Cons: "I miss snacks! Even a bag of pretzels would have been appreciated."
Pros: "Big comfortable plane."
Cons: "No entertainment, no food at all."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Rickity old plane. Needs updates badly. No drink service options. Cash only bar? Hello, this is the 21st century calling the 20th... You can have your plane and payment methods beck."
Pros: "Nothing really, very upsetting start of a vacation."
Cons: "The layover in Boston was an hour or so, but the miscommunication between American Airlines and Iberia was such, that my luggage never left the US. I am very upset cause Iberia did not even provided any good ground help in Lisbon - Portugal, with the most rude personnel I ever had to deal with that was actually annoyed I was complaining they lost my luggage, they offer no assisatance."
Pros: "Smooth and easy flight."
Cons: "Food was not good at all."
Cons: "It was not British airline but was contracted to American airline. It lacked class."
Pros: "The person at the luggage area, she gave me the ticket, very nice and polite the only professional person."
Cons: "Didn't let me take my hand luggage, small that complies with the size and told me only at gate, I said I had things that could brake and showed no concern and they would send it to my final distinction instead giving it to me in the end of first flight...I've been traveling around the world and the disrespect for customers and poor service of most of US carrier is amazing... some African companies are much better. on the second flight, almost two hours delay, the plane from philly to Lisbon, old, just s few tv screens, exactly like the North Korean airways..., bad food, my tray stayed with me the whole fly, flight attendant not very professional with no concern for customers and job."
Cons: "Lost connection"
Pros: "Overall the flight was good, on time"
Cons: "Nothing at this stage"
Cons: "Cannot believe how American a treated it's passengers. 3 hour delay to JFK. No apologies. Missed connection to Paris. Not any customer service agents to be found in JFK at 11:30 pm. No explanation on what next. No hotel.. Nada. I'll never travel with American again."
Pros: "Boarding and debar king was quick."
Cons: "Attendant was surly, no coffee, no continental breakfast as indicated on the reservation. Very disappointed with in-flight service."
Pros: "The Resolution team assisted me initially when I arrived to correct an issue from my online attempt. The agent printed bag checks for me to my final destination and told me how to get needed boarding pass for the final stage. How wonderful to have pleasant and professional personal attention."
Pros: "Boarded quickly. Seats were comfortable. Friendly flight attendants. It was a quick flight, no entertainment used. Only had a cookie and water for food. Don't know about the other things."
Cons: "Attempted to make my connection which was in another terminal. Could not get onboard as they shut the doors. My rerouted flight was in a different terminal. Overall a very disappointing travel experience."
Pros: "The flight was short, only 1.35 hours."
Cons: "To start, the boarding process is a chaos. First class and executive platinums should board first, but of course the gate agent was completely clueless and rude, even to an ExPlat. Althiugh the flight is only 1.35 hours, I was surprised that flight attendants didn't even make an effort to offer a drink service. No turbulence or anything, just seems they were lazy."
Pros: "The flight minus was very fast, 26 minutes"
Pros: "The crew was great. The flight attendants were pleasant and helpful and the pilot gave timely and useful announcements. The coffee and free cookies were quite good as well (surprisingly, especially for the coffee)."
Cons: "As a frequent United flyer, I was a bit taken aback to see that AA charges for their movie streaming to your personal device."
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Horrible delay due to maintenance. Seat cushion completely gone. Forced to wait on shuttle bus too long"
Pros: "Only about half full, new plane was very clean, excellent snack options in First, attentive crew"
Cons: "On a windy day, our landing was bumpy and the pilot pulled up at the last second. After a fatal landing accident in the news, it was nerve-wracking, but I appreciate the crew's decision!"
Pros: "The head flight attendant was fantastic. I apologize I don't have her name, but she was courteous, which is a rarity these days when flying commercial."
Cons: "The boarding process was incredibly disorganized. There is poor spacing between the seating groups, which encourages a mob to stand right at the podium and rush the gate. Unlike United, which uses gates to separate Boarding Groups, American just leaves it to be a free-for-all that actually slows down the process and frustrates customers before anyone has boarded."
Pros: "Comfortable flight, good seats"
Cons: "No food, beverage service was mediocre, and there was no on-board entertainment"
Cons: "DC Gate agent was rude upon boarding. DC plane was very small and lacked overhead cabin room."
Pros: "Due to inclement weather, which I know is beyond the control of AA, I spent 10 frustrating hours of delayed, but then ultimately canceled flights. Followed by long customer service lines and "sorry buts" to flat out lying from gate attendants and stewardesses. I know most of the airlines do it but now that you are making a profit I think it's time to give back to the customer when weather complicates their travel. But most of all, please just give us the decency of the truth -- it sucks-- but we can handle it. Yes there will always be those out of control customers that scream and yell, but most of us, as what I witnessed-when it all breaks down--are chill and understand. Complimentary drinks. Coupons for a later flight. All hands on deck with crazy knowledge of the routes you fly to ease rebooking. I realize we as a people can't stop flying, whether it be for work or family needs, but you can't keep treating us like stupid cattle. Thank you whoever reads this for letting me express my frustration and thank you AA ultimately for getting me to my destination."
Pros: "Cancelled due to weather. Still stuck in DC. American's communication is AWFUL!"
Cons: "Jammed on bus to go to plane and no notice of what was going on. Passengers jammed into bus with no updates. AA sucks."
Pros: "The flight was only ten minutes late."
Cons: "Gate 35x at National just doesn't work. A woman fell on the ice trying to get to the shuttle bus, on which we sat for a long time before leaving for the plane. After a chaotic boarding, the plane sat around as the flight became late, and the pilots gave no explanation for the delay or hint of when we might take off."
Pros: "Pilot kept us in the know given congestion at LGA. And kept us safe because of expected turbulence."
Cons: "I feel like the airline should know LGA is backed up since they flight mostly the same schedule daily. Flight AA2174 should be pushed to a later time so passengers don't have to sit on the tarmac."
Cons: "Airline never assigned me a seat. They just told me what sea to sit in when I was boarding. I was concerned I would be bumped since when checking the airline said it could not assign a seat."
Cons: "Long delay at departing airport due to no flight crew"
Pros: "It was a short hop over to New York, so that's the only positive thing I can say."
Cons: "The plane was tiny, seats uncomfortable. Had to be bused to the plane, only 1 bus provided and had to be packed like sardines. Overall, a terrible experience."
Pros: "The landing in Phoenix finally here!!"
Cons: "The 5 plus hour flight but had to endure to get to Phoenix!!"
Pros: "It got me home, and around the time I was originally supposed to arrive"
Cons: "It left late, without any explanation as to why. It's pretty pathetic that I was thankful that AA got me home at all, considering they almost left me stranded in the wrong city, and the only reason I wasn't was no thanks to AA and thanks to Kayak."
Pros: "Uneventful, reasonably timely, not overcrowded, cheerful and friendly flight attendant"
Cons: "Long, needless wait in the cold, crowded, standing room only shuttle bus"
Cons: "The flight attendant forgot to serve me."
Pros: "three meals snacks in-between Crew even went above and beyond got me a sleep mask even though those are reserved for business class passengers and a mimosa too when it wasn't even on the menu too cool high five cabin crew"
Cons: "777 airplane seats are hard as bricks for a 13 hour flight should change out seat cushions for new ones every 6 months or so if not already done ."
Cons: "Slight delay"
Pros: "Everything the flight but the food was satisfactory with United and not accompanied with food"
Cons: "Food not satisfied or accompanying with ex food because portion was to small"
Pros: "Flight is a quick and easy one."
Cons: "It truly bothers me that during pre-board, United says, "if you have a disability you can board now." Who would want to be the person moving forward to board? Southwest says something to the affect of "if you have a pre-board and need a little extra time." Maybe they could change their verbiage to sound a bit more like we're in the 21st century."
Pros: "The flight was smooth and staff was courteous."
Pros: "Decent leg room. Wonderful to do the flight non-stop from NYC to Delhi."
Cons: "United. September 14 Newark to Delhi Premium Economy Entertainment screen didn't work for 1st hour of the flight. the movie list was mediocre at best. The screen was smeared with some substance. The list of movies on the United entertainment app is great (via internet) but connectivity on this type of flight is spotty so the traveler is forced back to the antique screen plane system. Dinner. Butter chicken or vegetable options. Food was bland and very small portions for the length of flight. The snack was delivered immediately after dinner was picked up. I did not open it. Looked like a hard roll with something on it. Style of service is abrupt, bordering on rude. Uses terminology that non-US travelers from different cultures would not understand, for instance do you want "white" coffee. Asked me if I had someone at home to pick up after me as she felt she was cleaning too much off the floor. Her comments appeared to be directed at me but it was not my trash (and even if it was, a better approach would be recommended). The flight attendant realized she had gone too far and apologized. Then complained about this "route" being difficult, with no one listening. She concluded by wishing me a good flight and saying that she hoped that she had not offended me. I assured her that she had. Breakfast was mediocre. Egg with soggy potatoes and an inedible sausage. Did not see what they were offering in the veggie dish. Staff seems tired and not culturally sensitive. There needs to be some retraining and consideration given to long haul menus and entertainment. I take this flight at least once a year. It continues to deteriorate."
Cons: "Temp inside plane was freezing cold. Pilot was asked 3 times to adjust. People were bundled up, hugging themselves and had blankets over their heads to try to stay warm. After third request to pilot, the temperature was set to so hot people were sweating and complaining. Typical United Airlines crew who think they are driving a cattle car"
Pros: "Food was good, inflight service was good, easy boarding and deboarding. lot's of space for luggage."
Cons: "too cold!!"
Pros: "Arriving in Dublin"
Cons: "Seat was cramped and uncomfortable"
Pros: "Seat size in premium economy."
Cons: "Food and presentation were weak."
Pros: "The crew was very nice, attentive and brought extra water without asking."
Cons: "I do not like the "something Asian chicken- or pasta" selection, never taste good."
Pros: "On time, free checked bag, speedy service and a friendly crew."
Cons: "Food could be better, does not compare with previous level of service."
Pros: "I don't love to fly, so I wasn't thrilled about a 7 hour flight. Actually, the flight itself went well, good food (for an airplane), staff was VERY nice, and boarding was easy enough. My issue unfortunately the people sitting behind me with 2 kids under age 3-4 years old. One of the kids screamed and cried for probably close to 5 hours. I didn't sleep at all. At one point, he cried for a continuous 2 hours while he kicked my seat. I felt like the staff should have asked if they could help, maybe suggest walking him around, etc. The child must have had ear pain, he cried constantly. I felt so badly for him."
Pros: "Flight attendant service was great."
Cons: "I'm tall and the seats are cramped."
Cons: "Never made it to destination"
Cons: "Poor WiFi. Poor video. Very small seating"
Pros: "Entertainment, food, service, on-time landing (early!)"
Cons: "Many delays. Uncomfortable seats. No outlets on that particular plane."
Pros: "One of us had the last seat on the plane even though they were reserved almost a month ago. However we had signed up for basic economy so that was not a shock. What was a shock was that water was dripping from the top side track onto his lap and he had to use the provided brochures to redirect the dripping water. The steward said it was condensation and that was it. Also, since it was next to bathroom, the smell wasn't great and the small child screaming while waiting to get into the bathroom wasn't pleasant."
Cons: "We were forced to deplane in DC and instructed to go to the United customer service counter to arrange our missed connections in Frankfurt. After standing in line at the United counter for 2 hours, we were told to go to our gate to re-board our plane. we wasted all that time standing and all but 2 agents had left the counter to take a break. it was EXTREMELY STRESSFUL not knowing what would happen to our missed connections. when we reboarded WE still did not have connecting flights.Also, on the United flight to Frankfurt, I had a premium economy seat and it was HORRIFIC. the extra leg room did NOT make the seat more comfortable and I SUFFERED greatly because I am recovering from an injury. Upon arrival in Frankfurt, after a great deal of begging, I got a hotel room for the night and upgrad to economy premium for the flight from Frankfurt to Addis. that Lufthana flight was better because my seat reclined somewhat but still I had a great deal of pain throughout the flight and I would have preferred to have been upgraded to business so that I could lay flat to ease my physical pain. Overall, the experience was extremely STRESSFUL and painful and the only way, I feel that Lufthana can repair this situation is to give me a free upgrade to business on my flight home.to Miami"

Cons: "I am a like-all man unless misbehaved"

Cons: "The food did not sit well with me. Seats became uncomfortable after a while, made it difficult to sleep."

Cons: "Good very poor Crew no interest to service, asked for landing immigration card, crew just answer haven't you got it? Then walk away"

Cons: "The long waiting with customs and that the connection were too far away to drop the baggage"
Pros: "The flight crew got us there quickly and safely."
Cons: "Food was sub par but that is about what you can expect from any US carrier, the crew was disorganized and let people move around before taking off making people finding their seats occupied on arrival. Service members were curt and woke us up for some kind of morning snack they call breakfast when my guest and I were clearly asleep and not interested. I really wish this flight was operated by Lufthansa..."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Crew did not get all passengers drink"
Pros: "The flight itself was great. Good movies, professional crew."
Cons: "The whole seating process was a nightmare. They didn't assign seats and when I tried to call first they said wait until 24 hours in advance or pay $100 THEN when I tried to check in 24 hours in advance they wouldn't assign seats bc the first leg was operated by United. They then said United couldn't assign seats at check in - only at the gate AND THEN the said they couldn't assign seats for our second leg because it was operated by Luftansa. It was ridiculous added stress on our honeymoon and my husbands first cross Atlantic trip. Made me never want to fly Luftansa/United transatlantic again (and I have been a milageplus card holder so that's saying something)"
Pros: "Very friendly staff. Easy flight, no issues."
Cons: "Little more leg room. Eye mask would have been nice."
Cons: "Paid extra for economy plus and still was too uncomfortable to sleep."
Pros: "During sleeping somebody took the pillow and the blanket from the adjacent seat. Unfortunately with my amenity kit and the Bose headphone case. The kit was found later by the personnel, the case not. Not reccomemded to sleep during flight at this airline."
Cons: "Every thing was ok"
Pros: "Arrived 45 minutes early"
Cons: "Boarding very slow Seats not comfortable"
Pros: "see headline!!"
Cons: "see headline!!"
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: "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"
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."
Cons: "The seats were tight. Not much leg room. Very expensive to check luggage, $40! No WIFI no TV"
Cons: "Plane was 2 1/2 hours late departing DCA"
Pros: "Wish they had free snacks."
Pros: "Smooth and friendly staff."
Cons: "Not free drinks or carry on bag charge."
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."
Cons: "I was shocked that Frontier charged $ 60 for a carry on at the gate. Since i bought my ticket on Kayak I had no Idea!"
Pros: "Simple straightforward."
Cons: "Will remember next time carry on bags round trip add extra $100 to fare. Seems deceptive."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable."
Cons: "I don't like the airlines' carry on policy of charging $45 if you bring a carry-on bag onboard to be placed in the overhead. It is a ridiculously fee, especially since once on board passengers are only offered water anything else has to be purchased. To some extent flying is a luxury and most will pay for that experience but Frontier was not luxurious and I will avoid flying Frontier in the future."
Pros: "crew, employees, facilities, pricing, convenience"
Cons: "The only beef I have is the new seating is horrible.... real back breakers...I suffer for days after a flight, even though I carry a lumbar support onto each flight"
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"
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: "I was given an exit row seat."
Cons: "I wasn't assigned a seat until everyone else boarded. I paid more for the carry-on luggage than the checked-in baggage. The lines were long at both boarding and checking in"
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: "I liked that you left on time."
Cons: "the seats are really uncomfortable"
Cons: "Surprise that only water was provided without cost"
Pros: "The cost of the flight"
Cons: "The pull down tray was hardly big enough to put down a cup"
