Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Short boarding, extra seat, arrived early"
Pros: "Crew was fine. Plane was fine. Boarding was okay, but late. They did give us an upgrade in seating on a flight to Salt Lske since they were late arriving at Seattle. The"
Cons: "Sat on ground for over an hour at Dulles A luggage problem wad the rationale. They was some inclement weather, but they knew it was coming and should have been prepared. Upon our late arrival at Seattle there was no one to direct or expedite our attempt to make our connection. There was no attempt to help us make our connection. Instead of arriving Helena at 3 pm., it was midnight."
Pros: "There was plenty of legroom, cabin crew came often for drinks, snacks and trash, power outlets easy to access (below tray table)."
Pros: "Comfortable seating, tv screens in seat backs."
Cons: "Like when captain points out landmarks every now and then but this crew did not. Minor complaint if I had to have 1."
Pros: "I like that we got in an hour before we originally planned"
Pros: "I’m an anxious flyer and flight wS smooth"
Pros: "Room on the plane so I could spread out a bit-not filled in my room. Free Gogo WiFi ."
Cons: "Everything was great"
Pros: "I have been flying for many years, and must admit that the flight cabin crew was incredible. Professional, attentive and on their feet for 95 % of the time. Thank you"
Pros: "Spacios seats and overhead bins. Staff is attentive and nice."
Cons: "Rough take off, but im sure its weather dependent since th weather weather was pretty sporadic."
Pros: "I would like to possibly see some better food options maybe for people who can not consume dairy. With the many different cheese platters, I was very uninterested. I had an early flight and thought I'd be able to eat something with a sort of substance. I was quite disappointed, I guess I'll have to be the annoying customer who brings chipotle on the plane next time."
Pros: "Everything went really smooth, including the flight - hardly any bumps at all. Loved the free movie selection and the free messaging connectivity."
Pros: "A short flight is always a great flight -- and the flight attendants were fabulous per usual."
Pros: "Friendly, welcoming staff; on time"
Cons: "Nothing at all!"
Cons: "The bathrooms are shockingly tiny!"
Pros: "Erika at the gate was a big help."
Cons: "Food sucks, wifi not working"
Pros: "Good customer service.! And great employees."
Cons: "They're on time and very friendly."
Cons: "When I went to check in in San Jose, they told me I was double booked on the flight to Seattle. One booking was paid for but not connected with the Reykjavik flight and the other booking was not paid for and connected to the Reykjavik flight. I spent 30 minutes at the first class check in counter of alalska air and then another 20 minutes at the gate almost missing the flight."
Pros: "First time flying from SNA/OC. Accessibility of terminals was great, close by parking and only 2$/hour. Almost no wait for check in and security, very fast and convenient. Boarding was uncomplicated and there was enough space for carry on items. Loved that they offer wifi throughout the flight and free messaging (in case you don't need full internet access). Will definitely consider flying with Alaska Airlines again!"
Pros: "Comfortable with an amazing crew"
Cons: "Nothing !!"
Pros: "Good service. Good food options. Reliable flight. Easy check in & quick baggage pick up. Thx."
Cons: "Too much heat on flight."
Pros: "First time flying Alaskan. Out of all the US-based airlines I flew with, Alaskan was the cleanest, friendliest, and quickest."
Pros: "Nice flight attendants, and the flight on the way home was not overbooked, which was lovely!"
Cons: "One flight attendant told me not to pack my bag so much if I wanted to take it on the plane, and I had to check it at the gate. Once on board, there were bigger suitcases than mine on board. 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: "I like the options they provide for food and love the charging stations on the seats."
Cons: "I found the aisle seats to be more uncomfortable than the inner seats. There was less room under the seat for baggage and feet and I got my elbow banged pretty bad by a cart (I had fallen asleep). I also think it is lame to be charged for basically everything but a drink and a cracker on a 5+ hour flight. We get nickle and dimed for everything. $10 for each food item, $10 for a movie screen (what happened to the good old days with free in flight movies?). We have to pay to check luggage ($25 bucks). We normally avoid flying if humanly possible because it is in general too much stress and too expensive but we prefer Southwest airlines if they will go to our destination. Bags are included with their tickets!"
Cons: "needed more water"
Cons: "I did not have food or entertainment. Boarding and exit just takes a long time."
Pros: "Fantastic crew"
Cons: "Airplane was absolutely freezing the entire flight."
Pros: "Alaska airlines rocks! Flight was early too."
Cons: "Ok, crew was ok, we arrived an hour early. Everything else was terrible to bad. No food in 6 hr flight?! Given a single tiny bite sized cookie, and only 2 small glasses of water, soda or juice. I'm a tall size 0, who still found the seats uncomfortably tight. WIFI was not included. We had to pay & pre load their app before the flight. Costumer service gets 2 out of 5 rating, giving 1 for showing up 2 for being dolled up"
Pros: "The flight to Seattle was seriously delayed but I was able to make my connecting flight to DC."
Cons: "The crew was not very good at updating the worried customers about their connecting flight status considering that there was a 55 minute delay. I was the last person to board and I made it to the gate in the nick of time. It was really stressful. On my way to PDX I used SW and I had a connecting flight in Denver. However the pilot was very good about giving us an update and assuring that we will get there on time. I felt reassured that SW cared for its passengers and was trying to alleviate our stress."
Pros: "Alaska has always treated us well. I would recommend them anytime."
Pros: "Charging ports were helpful"
Cons: "Flights attendant was rude"
Pros: "Everything was efficient and quick. Plane was clean. Crew was responsive."

Pros: "Everything went just as it should."
Cons: "Nothing went wrong."
Cons: "no complains"
Pros: "The crew was extremely hospitable! The airplane appeared new, but regardless was extremely clean. There was only a snack on the flight, but it was enjoyable. Overall, very highly recommendable airline."
Cons: "Lack of help with information on transfer between terminals at Seattle/Tacoma"
Pros: "Up & down in 45 minutes."
Pros: "Love Alaska and ANA. GREAT FLIGHTS."
Pros: "Military, Alaska airlines was awesome allowing active duty members to bring up to 6 bags up to 70lbs each witch helped us a lot since we when transferring to another state. Boarding was fast, and the crew was very nice and helpful."
Cons: "The food was delicious, but I couldn't give a five stars just because I had to pay for it. 6 hours flight it was necessary to eat something, it was just $6 and drinks were free. So I give a 4 start for that reason. Entertainment was good if you bring your own tablet or laptop. Some shows are free and some you have to pay for. They also had tablets for rent for $10. Confort, it was a pretty big plane. I had the bad luck to get the seat in front of the emergency exit so I couldn't reclined my sit but it wasn't that bad."
Pros: "Crew give me feel comfortable!"
Pros: "Flight were on time"
Cons: "Nothing really"
Cons: "No complimentary snacks offered such as pretzels"
Pros: "Crew was super friendly!"
Cons: "Charging for meals."

Pros: "The crew was great."
Cons: "More food."
Cons: "Seats a lil tight"
Pros: "The crew was amazing and polite."

Cons: "Better movies"
Pros: "Yes the crew was amazing"
Cons: "Stop being LATE!!!!"
Pros: "Crew was very kind and entertainment was good when available"
Cons: "WiFi in all flights"
Cons: "The ticketing counter gave very bad guidance for when I arrived, thus refusing to allow me to check my bag. And insisting that I had to cancel my skymiles ticket and purchasing a new ticket. Show up at least 2 hours before at DCA for intl flights, employee incompetence could cost you $$$$"
Pros: "jFk To DCA crew is fine and helpful."
Cons: "Crew and flight from DCA to JFK was terrible. We left over 30 minutes later with no explanation as to what was taking so long. There was no info given to passengers in regards to what gate or terminal you’re landing and in- was only given 20min to get to gate c Terminal 2 from gate b terminal 4.0"
Cons: "Virgin Atlantic has had better days. Living off of a long gone reputation. Great staff but old and worn out planes. Code sharing has done them no favors!"
Pros: "The flight"
Cons: "The flight"
Pros: "The plane and flight was fine, as was the crew on board. The crew within the Salt Lake airport could have been better. Not sure if it was the gentlemans first time but overall he and the woman working the boarding were very slow and could have been more efficient. We boarded late (may be out of their control) but when we started boarding there was too much wasted time between calling up the military/people with longer boarding needs/wheelchairs etc. They waited until they were completely boarded and settled prior to calling the next group then spent time fiddling with the sign that splits the boarding lanes etc. Just appeared that there was no sense of efficiency. Polite people though."
Pros: "Baggage came quickly. Flight was on time."
Pros: "Boardin process was Ok"
Cons: "Due to several issues we were delayed in 3,5 hours"
Cons: "Delta changed our seat assignment and our seats sucked"
Pros: "Everything on time, friendly and helpful attendants"
Cons: "Why does boarding have to happen with several other flights, gets confusing. Have other flights board at a different time or from another gate far away so customers don't get confused"
Cons: "No food"
Cons: "Crew was grumpy and Curt. Seats still smaller than a kindergarten class, and didn't even serve water."
Pros: "Staff was friendly."
Cons: "During boarding, the sign wasn’t updated after Zone 1. I was watching the board from a distance while on the phone, waiting for Zone 4 to come up. Fortunately, I heard them say “final boarding” over the intercom; otherwise I could have missed my flight."
Pros: "The movies"
Cons: "We boarded late, then sat in a hot plane for an ester 30-40 mins because the route got cancelled. They wouldn’t serve us beverages while it was so hot inside. We landed over 49 mins later into Lax"
Pros: "Free movies"
Cons: "Everything fuckin sucks"
Pros: "The in-flight movie was very much appreciated."
Pros: "Good in general."
Cons: "No wifi, no leg room"
Pros: "everything is fine except th nickel and dime."
Cons: "Why do airlines charge you an arm and a leg to fly then force to 1. Check a bag, or 2. Get a drink, or 3. Get a seat in an exit row or worst of all now 4. WIFI IS NOW A STANDARD ON PLANES BUT PASSENGERS MUST PAY?!?!"
Pros: "Very grateful they moved me to an earlier flight when mine was delayed due to weather. Impressed with entertainment options."
Pros: "Helpful DCA counter personnel, cabin crew and comfy aircraft. On time both ways!"
Pros: "Short flight"
Pros: "Movie selection and cable channels"
Cons: "My connection was abruptly changed, it took a long time to straighten out, but they eventually did."
Cons: "The male flight attendant my section was very unpleasant to the elderly passengers in my area and just left me very uneasy about the flight"
Pros: "Flight attendant gave me the can of Diet Coke and extra pretzels when requested. The entertainment was excellent, the TV screen in the seats. Good choice of TV shows"
Cons: "Seat size"
Pros: "Quick service - uneventful."
Pros: "Excellent service, God flight"
Pros: "Customer services"
Pros: "I board sky priority or sooner so it always goes well."
Cons: "Delta could do a little more to align people behind the right zone pillars when lining up for boarding. Passengers especially those not used to flying or flying with Delta are always confused. Maybe some stripping on the floor could help or pillars at the front and midway back."
Pros: "Delta fo"
Cons: "The service was terrible. Also a ripped off base on I was expecting to be treated as if I was on Virgin nothing compares to it . Delta plane making a loud noise we can even heard anything when pilot does announcement. I want my money back or I should be reinbuise some how."
Pros: "Great service very courteous crew. Smooth takeoff and landing."
Pros: "Crew was good."
Cons: "Plane was late"
Cons: "Never announced we were over 10Kfeet and could turn on electronic equipment, attendant seemed cross when her question "pretzels or coockie?" was answered "yes.""
Cons: "Delayed boarding and take off"
Pros: "Good experience overall. Pleasant staff. Movie features were wonderful and helped pass the time."
Pros: "The service. The plane (seemed like an international plane). Food options. The service and the service. There was a problem getting on, they allowed premium members to board but when I got to the plane, I was scolded by the cleaning crew lady (maybe the Mgr) that they were not ready and that she had informed 'them' of that and that no one is allowed to board while they are cleaning."
Pros: "Free food for all on this flight! Turkey sandwich was actually quite good! Great legroom, flight attendants, and pilot. Free great movie for all."
Cons: "Spent $25 on Main Cabin Preferred when I thought it was Economy Comfort. Did not really change my experience and i'm out $25."
Pros: "Not much"
Pros: "787 seats have better legroom & recliner"
Cons: "Vegetarian food needs lot of improvement"
Cons: "Well organized loading, consistent beverage service"
Pros: "One of the few non-stop flights between Seattle and Philadelphia. Convenient times for my travel needs"
Cons: "There are 9 boarding groups some of which have no one in them. I don't understand why. Seats don't have screens for entertainment so you have to use your own device to. Make sure you have extra batteries since there is no power to charge on board."
Pros: "I had nice leg room as I was in the exit row"
Cons: "There weren’t any USB chargers which was confusing because the flight was 5+ hours long. There were no media options either, or blankets and the plane got cold."
Pros: "Boarding and service was nice"
Cons: "We were delayed an hour because the plan was in the hanger! Why? We were all there, didn't American know the plane should be at he gate! No escplanation as to why the plane was not there other than it was in the hanger! Airlines need to let the customers be flexible especially when are!"
Pros: "Movies and plugs"
Cons: "This WAS the worst flight I have ever been on! First no pilot then no gas. Then turbulence the entire flight basically. AND THEN when we landed we couldn't even get off of the plain because there was no one to help us off??!!! Also they were out of food. It was just over all horrible."
Pros: "I did like sitting on the left side of the plane. There's a little more room. I feel it's horrible how the airline charges so much and cram so many seats in one air craft. Making it a miserable flight."
Cons: "See above"
Cons: "no food"
Pros: "Free beverage"
Cons: "My bag was lost and it still hasn't showed up at the airport. Seems like I would get some kind of credit of some kind for this inconvenience."
Pros: "The pilot was charming, and really hugged Mt. Rainier on the way in - Made for an incredible view in the moonlight!"
Pros: "Had good bathroom access and place to stand in the back galley so you could exercise and stretch as this was a connecting flight and I had been in the air a long time."
Cons: "The older woman stewardess was rude. I tried to give her my papers and she ignored me. So I put them in the pocket and the man next to me saw what happened and she responded to him. Curt. The plane is old and no individual TV. The food choices were very limited. I felt like cattle rather than a relaxing flight. Flying use to be fun and exciting and part of a great trip. Now it is endured to get on a trip."
Pros: "I was upgraded to the comfort economy after waiting 10 hours at DFW for my flight."
Cons: "After being in DFW airport for 10hrs all I wanted to do was watch a movie on board and sleep. Go figure, my TV didn't work. I called the attendant and she said she would reset them. The "resetting process" took a while. She attempted, and the other stewardess did as well. They said that the TV issue that *some* of the people were experiencing wasn't able to be fixed by them and only by the company that provides it's service. So there wasn't anything that could be done. I know that at least the two guys that were traveling next to me had issues with the tv monitors as well. It was just driving it home that I will never fly on American Airlines again. I don't ask for much these days while flying, it's not like it's a luxury anymore. But the saddest part is that customer satisfaction is completely out of the question. Just pay the extra money and fly another airline. -Deidre Fugate"
Cons: "No in flight movie"
Pros: "I loved how sweet the crew was. I loved the movie selection."
Cons: "The seat was completely uncomfortable. My feet are swollen and my back hurts still."
Pros: "The flight was on time. It was serviced well by very friendly flight attendants. I enjoyed it very much."
Pros: "I did not like have to stay in a hotel room when I could be sleeping in my room I'm on medication I don't even have my medicine with me because American Airlines had engine trouble in Dallas we went back to the Terminal 3 times before they ever got it fixed slit throat me late getting into Seattle and I missed the flight to Yakima I don't feel that this was my fault I didn't nothing to delay the airplanes and I walked as fast as I could to the terminal on in Seattle so I didn't have such a pleasure to little trip but your airline get put me up in a hotel but it's still not does not change the fact I have my blood pressure medicine and about 10 other medications but my blood pressure is the biggest and I will think twice before I fly Alaska Airlines again"
Cons: "flight was rebooked to a terrible time, the next day, had to spend over $300 for hotel, extra parking, extra meal, extra day on rental."
Cons: "They cancelled the flight and put me to fly the next day"
Pros: "I had my first experience in the Admiral's Lounge at O'Hare and enjoyed it very much."
Cons: "My traveling companion's tray table was disgusting when she folded it down for beverage service. She asked for a wet towel and the flight attendant was snarky but went to get one without even looking or asking to see what the problem was. Her entertainment console wasn't working so they reset it but instead it reset mine (two seats over) they did this again and I let them know it was resetting mine. I was told that I was not in the seat they were resetting for ...I inquired if perhaps they should try to reset mine and see if it would, in fact, fix hers..it did. When she slipped off her shoes the carpet was soaking wet. This was a really crummy, crummy flight."
Cons: "See above comments"
Cons: "3 hrs on tarmac then weather canceled flight then hoax shutdown JFK"
Cons: "Charlotte to Seattle flight: The food served in first class smelled awful. Seated in premium seating just behind first class was unfortunate due to the atrocious odor that lasted for 3+hours. There was no option for food service for the rest of the plane. Which was unfortunate as I was very hungry. Due to inconsistent notification that the plane was delayed / on-time (kept switching the notification) we opted to not get dinner in the airport..... To which the plane was was an hour late yet we were told to check in every ten minutes to see if we were boarding. There were no blankets. The plane was incredibly cold. The suggestion I received from the flight staff was to turn off the vent above my head (which I had already done.) I had brought a jacket and was wearing pants. On a 5.5 hour flight, the crew served beverages 45 minutes into the flight (per usual) and handed out a pretzel pack. They didn't come back through with water or beverages again. On other airlines, they promote water at least once an hour to keep swelling and dehydration down. Since I am a pretty frequent flier, I bring my own water. Still, coffee would have been nice. Suggestions: increase beverage service to at least twice / 5.5 hour flight and provide blankets upon request. Food choices and entertainment would also be good. Don't cook stinky dinners in first class and allow it to pollute the rest of the plane."
Cons: "We sat on the runway for more than an hour."
Cons: "3rd flight with AA this year. Luggage damaged for second time."
Cons: "The crew was talking very loudly so I couldn't sleep. It's a red eye flight! People are trying to sleep!!"
Pros: "The young woman running the admirals club front desk was excellent Friday July 29"
Pros: "The standard seating had good leg room."
Cons: "The seat didn't have enough padding for a 5 hour flight, I don't think I'll take another long flight on an A320."
Pros: "Pilot on return flight got us to our destination 30 minutes early (unfortunately there wasn't a gate for us to pull into so we waited 30 minutes on the Tarmac)."
Cons: "Departing flight was delayed over eleven hours because a flight attendant was ill. They actually had to fly in a flight attendant all the way from Texas to cover this Seattle to JFK flight! So our flight departed a whole day later and we missed a day of our vacation (we arrived at 7pm instead of 7am). I understand things happen but this was not weather related or a mechanical issue. This is simply poor personnel management. They should have a back-up plan if an employee falls ill. One that doesn't involve flying in an employee from another region of the country, let alone another state. The inefficiency continued on the return flight when it took a whole hour for the luggage to come out! Will avoid flying American again at any cost."
Pros: "Nothing...I had to be rerouted to Chicago to Seattle!"
Cons: "The fact that through no fault of my own, I arrived in Seattle much later than expected and my clients were not particularly happy with the delay."
Pros: "Nothing!!! WORST EXPERIENCE IVE HAD TRAVELING"
Cons: "This was the worst day we have ever had flying. Spent 12 plus hours at the airport! Got on and off planes for 6 hours because of mechanical problems. 7 hours later they canceled the flight due to crew fatigue. The customer service was horrible plane was dirty it was an horrific experience. Alaska booked us with American Airlines. I will never travel American ever again. I'm considering using a different booking site. The experience was the worst I've ever had. Kayak Alaska and American are getting bad marks from me!!!!"
Pros: "The plane was luxurious and comfortable, even in coach. Great flight."
Cons: "They must have switched my gate four or five times and delayed my flight a whole hour"
Cons: "Flight was about 20 mins late"
Cons: "Out of certain food items that should have been available"
Cons: "The flight was delayed over two hours!"
Pros: "Flight attendants were friendlier than on the earlier flight"
Cons: "That I had to pay so much for an upgraded seat which I needed due to recent shoulder surgery."
Cons: "There was no flight entertainment for a cross country flight! The only option was to stream via my personally device. This would have been fine if there were outlets to charge personal devices at each set!"
Cons: "Very conjusted seats"
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed twice. We got to Seattle three hours later than we were supposed to."
Pros: "The cabin crew were friendly and efficient. Personal entertainment provided on every seat back."
Cons: "Boarding could be improved if airline would start boarding passengers seated in the rear of the plane first."
Pros: "Quick and easy commute from desert to PNW"
Pros: "Liked how on time the flights were."
Cons: "Nothing to complain about."
Cons: "My seat was right next to the toilet. On this red eye flight it was terrible trying to sleep but randomly having a bright light on my face because someone opened the bathroom door. This is terrible design."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, smooth flight. The European cookies were a nice touch. The crew were very friendly and gave my girlfriend a blanket when she completely passed out on me. Arriving in Seattle, the plane quickly and efficiently de-boarded all passengers."
Cons: "Our first scheduled flight timed out and was cancelled, forcing everyone to de-board. We had to sleep on the airport floor and arrived at our destination very late. The flight times were poorly arranged, as we had to wait 14 hours to get on the next flight. Also, I purchased two boarding passes for both myself and my girlfriend and somehow I ended up in a later group than she did after checking in."
Pros: "The flight was fine."
Cons: "The email i received was from Alaska Airlines but what I didn't know was that it was for an American Airlines flight. Normally this is not a big deal, but in Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport the two airlines are in different terminals which required a fair amount of time to travel from one to the other. Had I not arrived at the airport early, I may have missed my flight. The confirmation email I received was labeled as an American flight, but since I received it from Alaska, I assumed I had reserved an Alaska flight. Also, the confirmation email I received from Kayak had me listed as a passenger on an Alaska flight. I'm assuming I originally booked for an Alaska flight, but later on in the confirmation process I was somehow changed to an American flight via Alaska. While I don't see this as a problem for Kayak, I think this is a situation in which your feedback could be useful to help avoid confusion for passengers in the future."
Cons: "The email system set up by Finnair to communicate that my flight had been changed was poor and, therefore, I was forced to spend 24 hours in an airport as a result. Will not ever fly Finnair again."
Pros: "Nothing good about this flight"
Cons: "Over 2 hour delay caused a missed appointment in Tacoma"
Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "If the power outlet works reliably, it would be much better. The toilet was really small."
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "Small seats. United is shrinking the hell out of these seats, and I am not a big guy. Free snacks are sugary and paid snacks are overpriced."
Cons: "There was a delay at the beginning with no communication. The AC was off in the beginning and it was too hot hen after it wa turned up way too high and was freezing. The seats were really uncomfortable."
Pros: "Can’t think of a darn thing."
Cons: "There were no power outlets or USB ports on the plane (at least in coach). Strange for a cross-country flight. Also, if you drop something or want your bag from under the seat in front of you, forget about picking it up unless you want to ask your seat mate if they mind your head in their lap. I am a small person, but not a contortionist. Limited entertainment."
Pros: "Snack menu, the plane was moderately clean compared to the last. Good communication about late flight."
Cons: "Staff was mostly rude, tired. The plane was 30 minutes late due to weather. Internet would not work, the captain kept trying to reboot it, no entertainment. An older plane in moderate disrepair. Economy seats were much more uncomfortable than American Airlines."
Pros: "Crew we're very friendly and helpful"
Pros: "Good leg room"
Cons: "Had ro pay for entertainment"
Pros: "Friendly service by the flight crew."
Cons: "No in-flight movies, tv or other entertainment. Not even some channels. Everything required payment. Wasn't that way on our trip over on what appeared to be similar equipment."
Pros: "Seats were in good condition."
Cons: "Tight seating. Have to buy entertainment. No wi-fi"
Pros: "The chairs weren't too bad"
Cons: "The staff wasn't friendly"
Cons: "This flight was cancelled and it became one of the most chaotic ordeals to get from Newark to Seattle."
Pros: "The food in business class was good. The flight was on time."
Cons: "The flight attendant in business class aloof and inattentive. It took 30 minutes and multiple tries to connect to wifi."
Cons: "I'm going to avoid flying United in the future due to the poor entertainment situation. Other airlines offer free movies or on-demand screens full of games, and on a 6 hour flight, United offered nothing unless customers paid additional fees. I was extremely disappointed."
Pros: "The flight left on time and arrived about half an hour early. That was great because I could grab a leisurely lunch before taking off on my next flight."
Cons: "The cabin was too hot."
Pros: "Aisel seating has barely any underseat space compared to the middle and window seats. A person has to sit at an angleto keep feet from ending up in the aisle. Not a great position for an extended flight. Charging Outlets were broken."
Pros: "Flight attendants were excellent as usual."
Cons: "Would love a plug or port at the seat to keep my device charged."
Cons: "My seat didn't recline - by design given then exit row behind me. I get that, except the seat in front of me did recline, so my knees were crushed and I couldn't do anything to accommodate the fact that there was another passenger in my face. If a seat is unable to recline by design, it needs extra space. The entertainment via the app failed to load. United has really dropped the ball on being a world class airline."
Cons: "It was all downhill once you boarded the plane. No entertainment center, nonexistent food, poor service, outdated noisy plane, terrible hard landing in Seattle. Flight crew spent most of their time in the back of the plane on their personal devices and talking amongst themselves. When they were up and about one of them spent a great deal of time talking VERY LOUDLY to a few passengers even though most of the passengers nearby were trying to rest or sleep. Worst flight ever."
Pros: "The fact that we were able to check two bags with no added cost and eve though we had to go through customs the bags were transferred for us after."
Cons: "The lack of entertainment on the second part of the flight which was serviced by United from Washington to Seattle. We had to use our own phones as the plane did not have screens and the choices of shows was a bit lacking, we also had to pay for drinks even though this was a 5.5 hour flight which should have included a meal."
Cons: "Old plane and was not clean."
Pros: "Crew was very accommodating for my husbands needs. Gave us blankets when only 1st class got them."
Cons: "No tvs"
Cons: "No food provided (unless paid) and no entertained for 5 hr flight, if you didn't have a device."
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."
Cons: "Every flight was delayed. I missed a major meeting due to these delays. Most of all the flight attendants where horrible and UNSAFE."
Cons: "This flight was delayed for 1.5 hours which was not nice and it was a six hour flight and only could receive pretzels without paying for food."
Pros: "Crew was gracious, helpful, and courteous during a terrible and disruptive ordeal for passengers"
Cons: "Being stuck for nearly an hour sweating on a plane with no AC while mechanics were trouble shooting, only to find out that we had to exit the plane, and that it could not fly. Passengers had no idea what to do - whether another plane would be sent for us, whether United would reimburse our ticket if we arranged another flight on our own, etc. We were left to fend for ourselves. I had a wedding to get to with many pre-wedding events, starting this evening. So, I looked for another flight, found one, booked it, and went to United customer service to request reimbursement for my ticket. I was told that United had just learned that another plane was coming for us and would arrive in 30 minutes, at 8:10. (My original flight had been at 6:35). The other flight I had booked was at 10:30 pm. So, United customer service changed canceled my new booking and put me back to my original flight, now arriving at 8:10 and boarding at 8:50. The plane did arrive, but we did not board until 10:50 pm. My flight left at 11:02 pm. Bottom line is that my flight was delayed 4.5 hours. I missed an important event that I was supposed to host. I missed my only opportunity to see a dear friend (and guest of honor) - this is someone I have not seen in person for ten years and was the guest of honor at tonight's celebration that I was supposed to host and missed. Furthermire, I could not carry on a bag that I have carried on for years, and that would have easiky fit. Having to check my bag left me without my phone charger. Of course, the fact that we were 4.5 hours delayed meant that I ran out of power shortly into our long flight from Washington. to Seattle. And the food was awful - stale nuts, . ;, b:;"
Pros: "Meals, for a coach ticket, were surprisingly good."
Cons: "There were electrical outlets, but they didn't work. Also the food was poor. Why can't we just get some healthier food as snacks, like fruit, or dried fruit and nuts or something? Airlines always just give you junk food."
Pros: "No connection anywhere, efficient direct flight, on time, and comfortable"
Cons: "There wasn't anything that I didn't like"
Pros: "The flight attendant was excellent. Much better than most of your other ones."
Cons: "Gate crew was rude."
Pros: "Seating arrangement"
Cons: "The delay and the worry of the door condition"
Pros: "Entertainment options were varied and kept the flight interesting."
Cons: "The check in process did not allow us to select seats until we got to the airport so we had to sit separately."
Cons: "Boarded, then deboarded due to missing rivets, flight delayed nearly 4hrs, luggage claim took close to an hour"
Cons: "4 hr delay on the flight, terrible experience never flying with United again."
Cons: "Older plane. Entertainment was poor and limited. Food wasn'the good."
Pros: "Food was a bit better than I expected. Videos kept going out. Staff were great. Plane landed well!"
Pros: "that the plane landed in one piece"
Cons: "it was late 1.5 hours it badly was overbooked hand luggage hysteria lack of aircon while on the ground overall attitude of crew"
Cons: "The plane was old. Entertainment screen too small and no way to restart a show. No AC power sockets at chairs. I was sitting at back of the plane and at the time food came there was no choice - they ran out of food options. Also, the plane storage bins were too small to fit small bags."
Pros: "Lots of movies and shows plus constant tracking info."
Cons: "Closeness of seats and worn out touch screens on seat backs resulted in people behind us constantly kicking and pounding on our setbacks throughout the flight. Cleaning crew did not do a thorough job, leaving trash and used chewing gum on floor from previous flight."
Cons: "My 3rd old was very hungry and I reached out to cabin staff for any kind of food for purchase, they turned me down saying I need to wait for another hour till the dinner time. Did not provide any help there. My baggage did not reach with me and they promised to deliver it with in next 6 hours and it turned out that they took more than 18 hours to deliver my baggage to my home. My entire day got wasted waiting for this baggage to reach me. Poor communication made me wait and watch the door every hour. I tried to reach and get some information on when that baggage would reach me but no body knows."
Pros: "Crew politeness"
Cons: "Not entertainment available for long flights. Aweful seating arrangements."
Cons: "Small cramped plan. Seats did not recline."
Cons: "Flight was canceled and announced at midnight"
Pros: "The mango sorbet"
Cons: "Every thing was ok"
Pros: "Arrived 45 minutes early"
Cons: "Boarding very slow Seats not comfortable"
Pros: "The low cost of the ticket was great, unfortunately they get you charging for checked bag, as well as, all drinks and snacks which were not a good selection."
Cons: "The lack of space! Very cramped, very uncomfortable!"
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."
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."
Cons: "We were diverted due to weather and nothing was communicated to us for hours. Not allowed to have our bags. They also nickel and dime you for everything from a carry on to even selecting your seat on the plane."
Pros: "Well the cost was great until the add ons!"
Cons: "In economy, carry-on $45, 1st checked $40. Advance purchase discount available. Also lets not forget the added charge to pick your seat?"
Pros: "Direct flight from DCA to Denver. Flight times."
Cons: "Disorganized boarding process. Bait and switch ticket pricing. No seat recline. Hard seat."
Cons: "I do not like all the extra charges for everything. It is a deceptive to say a flight costs a specific price but then you have to pay for your seat if you want to sit with your family. This is ridiculous. Even soda's are $1.99 each. The bags cost too.... I will not choose this airline again until some of this changes."
Pros: "Flight on time, clean interior"
Cons: "Seats don't recline, drinks cost extra, checked bag costs more than other airlines and carry on is even more. Reserved seats are another added cost. In the end not such a cheap flight."
Pros: "clean cabin"
Cons: "No reclining seat Charge for carry on No entertainment food very limited and overpriced"
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: "35 minutes early?"
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."
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."
Cons: "Customers service"
Pros: "Ticket price"
Cons: "Pay extra for everything!"
Cons: "Hidden fees, no free snacks or drinks"
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."
Pros: "the crew and all personnel were very competent and nice. the flight itself was great - smooth, arrived early."
Cons: "Frontier charged fees much higher than any other airline for everything! Beginning with a small carry on suitcase that I have used for years with all airlines I had to pay $45 to carry on or $40 and the ticket counter. I only had a small purse in addition to the carry on suitcase. This made my flight to and from $80-$90 more expensive. Then if you chose a seat you had to pay extra - if you wanted a reclining seat you had to pay extra - the exit row seats were $50 more -you had to pay for sodas - pretzels - everything! I will NOT fly Frontier again - it is cheaper to fly a major airline without all the add on costs. Dianne Robinson"
Cons: "I had an 11-hour delay from DCA to DIA. There was little, if any, communication from Frontier personnel to passengers about why, and what was being done about it. There were points in time where there wasn't a representative at the ticket counter or the gate. The customer service reps on the phone couldn't help either. I eventually ended up spending the night in Denver, and over 27 hours late into SFO."
Cons: "I can't believe you even have to pay for a Diet Coke! What's next? Toilet paper?"
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"
Pros: "It got us to our destination and was clean. The crew was nice"
Cons: "I think it's terrible how many chairs get packing into planes. I spilled something and couldn't bend down to clean it up. The teenager behind me knocked my chair every time she moved. And the tray tables are too tiny and banged down with a racket."
Pros: "The staff were nice, although the check in clerk tried to charge my credit card again for the checked bag when I was showing them my receipt that I already had. This wasn't a big deal, but there was clearly something wrong with the company technology where she was not able to see on her end that I had paid."
Cons: "Frontier used to be a decent airline, now it's clear that you all are nickel and diming passengers, and the quality of everything is much cheaper. Seats cheaper, tray tables cheap, and so forth. The tray tables are so small they can't hold anything (which was disappointing because I had work to do). It's crazy that you all are charging for drinks other than water. Not a big deal, I get that the models are changing. I just likely will not fly Frontier again unless I must. You all should take more pride in providing a comfortable and warm environment for passengers."
Pros: "Inexpensive, quick"
Cons: "The seats were fixed, tiny and I was uncomfortable the whole time."
Pros: "I liked that you left on time."
Cons: "the seats are really uncomfortable"
Pros: "I was shocked the frontier charged for a seat, and in a most tricky manner! Clearly the goal is to squeeze a few more dollars out of you, with the implied threat that you'll get the most uncomfortable seat possible if you don't fall for their extortion."
Cons: "The extra fees were tricky, the gate was uncomfortable, the plane was uncomfortable, the staff was surly, and the landing in Reagan was terrifying."
Cons: "Surprise that only water was provided without cost"
Pros: "The discipline of controlling carryon bags made the loading process much better than competing airlines."
Cons: "1. Seats were very uncomfortable 2. The cabin was too warm and vented air was insufficient to make up for this. 3. after landing from a 3 hour flight we sat on the runway for almost an hour before being allowed to proceed to the gate and unload. 4. The departure terminal has insufficient amenities to support a 3 hour flight where no food or beverage is provided."
Cons: "Frontier performed the classic cheap fair approach to lure me in and then tried to nickel and dime me for everything. The most shocking discovery was I couldn't check in online without paying an extra $13 per leg ($26 total) just to sit in a seat. Then when I checked in at the counter they informed me I could check in free in person, but in that case I would have to fly standby. Who does that to people!? Anyways, it got worse. They wanted to charge me for a carryon, for a juice, no treats not even peanuts without having to pay, truly a disgraceful service ensued. This will be my last flight with Frontier most likely unless I am desperate and some plague has hit my city and they are the last functioning airline out."
Pros: "The cost of the flight"
Cons: "The pull down tray was hardly big enough to put down a cup"
Pros: "When yoyu book your flight it doesnt indicate that you will need to pay for a carry on. Paying extra at the gate for a carry on. I think this is ridiculous! I fortunately I noticed when shecking in and prepaid for a checked bag. Which strangly is the less expensive option. I have flown Frontier several times and this is a newer policy. I always remind myself after a Frontier flight that I will not fly with them again but their low fares keep luring me back. But no more . This is a deal breaker for me. I can pay a little more for my flight and get a free carry on and a drink! I also did not appreciate having to BUY a seat assignment."
Pros: "Arriving and getting off the plane."
Cons: "Tired of scaled down service and getting nickeled / dimed on everything. Frontier is one of the worst."
Cons: "I despise the marketing department for the number of times Frontier tried to sell me an 'upgraded seat' and then when I wouldn't bite, I couldn't even choose the one I wanted. I've never taken a flight where the only no-cost item was a glass of water. I will never fly frontier again!"
Cons: "$40 to carry on a travel sized guitar seemed a bit much"
Pros: "The flight was on time and quick -- which made it great"
Cons: "- but the seats are very basic, the tray tables are very small, there is no entertainment at all and the only free refreshment is water!"
Pros: "There was nothing that I enjoyed."
Cons: "I should have expected that I was being had when I found a cheap ticket. Having to pay an extra $50 for seat and checked bag was silly. The terminal for frontier at DCA was a tiny area of a giant cluster! No seating, not sure which folks were boarding for which flight. My frontier desk printed boardin pass said my flight was at 5 (normal time) when I had already been notified that it was delayed an hour, which. Turned into an hour and fourty minutes. I paid 15 or 20 for a better seat 5c and had a ridiculous excuse for a tray table, less room than any flight I've ever been on and uncomfortable seats. Neither pilot not flight attendants apologized for inconvenience and then I got an email that offers me a $100 voucher for another flight. Great, now I can use your airline and only pay for my seat and carry on bag! There are more frustrations but I'll give them to you if I ever have any contact. I'm not writing it all down and wasting more of my time on your unorganized airline."
