Pros: "Quick entry. One flight attendant was very friendly."
Cons: "First class upgrade was suspect. Seats were all visibly torn. Very busy ailes to bathrooms for first class. One flight attendant was a bit rude. Other attendant was very nice.

Pros: "had wheel chair assistence and wonderful seat assignments"
Cons: "all trip was very comfortable and staff was very caring."
Pros: "The gate crew had a wonderful sense of humor that helped people relax and just plain old have fun! The plane was clean and the crew all nice."
Cons: "Feeling like a sardine."
Pros: "The crew was grumpy. I sat in row 29 next to bathroom, the smell and seat did not recline. I could hear the crew talk about the people, some comments were rude. I was diappointed."
Cons: "Like.......I got th of the cities workout crashing."
Pros: "That it left on time and the boarding was smooth. Nice crew!"
Cons: "Seat 19D was not working properly, but it wasn't much of an issue. I did alert a flight attendant. This was for Flight 386 from RSW to MSP departed 7:35p.m. on the 6th of April."
Pros: "EVERYTHING WAS NORMAL."
Cons: "THE SEATS SEEM BROKEN- THE PAD SLIDES AROUND. IS THERE A SOLUTION TO THAT CRAPY WIRE THAT HOLDS THE SEAT BACK POCKET CLOSED? IT HITS US TALL GUYS IN THE KNEES AND IS A TRUE DETRACTION EVERY TIME. THE SEAT PAD WAS SOOOO FLAT- NO CUSHION LEFT."
Cons: "Missed flight because it took over 1 hr to get through security. They couldn't care less at the gate and told me not to worry "You will make it so you can get back in line". Sun country was unhelpful in rearranging plans."
Pros: "The check in and flight went fast & easy. Good Job!"
Pros: "The general attitude of the flight crew was great. Warm and kind, fun and full of smiles."
Cons: "The picnic pack was the only thing I could eat and was told it was no longer an option but still on the menu. Ended up not getting anything and was not thrilled by it."
Cons: "Seating policy is strange and a bit confusing."
Pros: "All of the staff from the ticketing agents to the flight crew were just wonderful. I just flew by myself with my infant son for the first time and it was far from traumatic thanks to the helpful crew."
Cons: "I was a little bummed that after I had payed for my bag over the phone because I was scared I might be charged more if I payed at the airport (Spirit Airlines has left me leary of baggage fees), the lady at the ticketing counter informed me that because of my military status I was eligible for my first bag free, but unfortunately could not refund me. (I totally understood) However, knowing this now does make us even more likely to fly Sun Country in the future! Thanks, Sun Country, for supporting our troops and their families!"
Pros: "Super nice crew- Seats were comfortable-we felt safe and well cared for the whole time. No hassles with the immigration papers like on other airlines-they had plenty and were willing to answer questions."
Cons: "Had to change gates without much notice. Maybe airports fault and not SunCountry."
Cons: "Would like to get a seat assignment when you check in on-line."
Pros: "Very easy..No stress..."
Pros: "on time. smooth flight"
Cons: "plane was old and somewhat dirty. plane had smell of waste."
Pros: "Super nice flight crew, food in flight amenities"
Pros: "Crew was very practical and personable. Food was airplane food, so I didn't expect to be impressed, and wasn't. Using and advertising the use of one of the local restaurant's (one that is a classic in that city) seasoning on the burger was a definite plus. Probably the only reason I bought a burger as a matter of fact."
Cons: "Update your damn planes. No movies? No music? Just a crummy little tablet if I want to watch something, and it's not even complimentary. It's inconvenient, and I'm expected to pay for it. Compared to Delta, not impressive at all."
Pros: "Flying is faster than driving."
Cons: "From the time you get in line to get your ticket to the time you exit the airplane you're treated like cattle."
Pros: "Very friendly on-time service. The two planes I was on had more legroom than Delta planes for a tall guy like me. I will continue to look for more sun country airline flights in the future."
Pros: "On time, adequate space and amenities. Everything as scheduled and promised."
Pros: "Oooh... and a new plane to boot! :)"
Cons: "Will need WiFi for business"
Cons: "They lost my bag. Service in retrieving ,\my bag was terrible."
Pros: "THat we made it home"
Cons: "Again we had to pay for "premium seating" first trip on Sun Country and we were amazed that we could not have seats that have more leg room as my husband just had knee surgery and needed it, never had that problem with any airlines. But again we were told that other passengers booked them. Checking in at the airport there were 2 people working the counter and 1 was struggling to figure out the check in process. Back at the GATE we were getting nervous as there was no plane and no one at the counter. Well the same 2 people came to work the gate and we all had to wait for the plane. The passengers got off and they immediately started the loading process. Clearly there was not enough time for anyone to clean this plane. And we left late with no explanation."
Pros: "Service, communication, inflight service the best! We like to fly first class whenever possible and SunCountry is one of the best first class environments. Flight crew, food, service in flight always the best!"
Pros: "As a major storm was impacting flights from the east coast into the Midwest, communication regarding delays was prompt. The in flight hospitality as always top notch! Ground crews in the airports very helpful."
Pros: "Flight held a little longer because half of us were held up n the slowest security check line I have ever experienced in my traveling life. That alone was awesome. crew was better then united in general from the counter check in, to flight attendant, to pilots they must have better job satisfaction than United and it shows in how we were treated."
Cons: "Flight out of Minn delayed due to weather, there was no weather in san Francisco."
Pros: "I liked the ease of loading the plane, very systematic, nobody was standing in line in front like rats waiting to get onboard, much more orderly. I have been flying Delta for the last 20 years, have not flown sun country before, was very surprised, very good value, I would have paid 4 times the price with Delta, loyalty means nothing to them."
Cons: "I don't like the fact that gasoline prices have decreased dramatically and all the airlines are still charging large baggage fees, and added fees for certain seats."
Pros: "Crew was very kind, and being able to bring a carry on with no charge was a huge benefit."
Cons: "No snacks."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Upgraded to first class - YaY. The personal media pad was cool."
Cons: "Flight was late"
Pros: "Nothing!!!! Actually we arrived home safely but exhausted & disgusted with the poor and often incompetent gate staff at Fort Meyers airport. However after pointing out that the 96 year old standing at the back of the line would absolutely need a hotel room to wait out the delay after her 12 hours sitting in the airport a Sun Country counter staff personally delivered her to a hotel room and back. This kindness was after describing this 96 year old woman is a bit of a Minnesota Super Star who has appeared on Jay Leno & Rosie's shows."
Cons: "50 characters is not enough to describe the horrible service received from Sun Country. It is obvious after a 24 hour delay where passengers were captive in the airport the staff is incompetent. People with small babies, elderly, disabled were not accommodated appropriately. Staff lied several times. Seemed like they had to keep us locked up for so many hours before the airline canceled. We think 12 hours and at 3 am allowed the airline to file a claim on insurance). By then many could not find a room, slept on floor at airport!!! They gave us vouchers, but I don't think I would fly with them if it was free. Home town airline has significantly inconvenienced four of our family vacations. Our time and vacation dollars are more valuable and in the future will do whatever we can not to fly Sun Country."
Pros: "It was in time"
Cons: "Hidden fees - You are able to checkout online but you have to pick an assigned seat which will cost you 15 dollars per seat, I had to pick the fire idle, which is fine. But they never emailed me the boarding pass so I still had to check in when I arrived at th air port... Kinda beats the purpose of checking in online , no? Plus, wasted 30 bucks for nothing."
Pros: "I liked that the crew were friendly and kept the passengers informed."
Cons: "The seats were the older style and felt cramped"
Cons: "1st flight had 1 hrs mechanical delay. connecting flight was delayed another 3 hrs due to mechanical issues and this was at the hub airport. needless to say, it took me twice as long to get to my destination."
Pros: "Very nice and accommodating people. Plane was very clean and really nice. Best airline I've flown in a really long time. The other airlines could use a few lessons and Sun Country could be a great teacher."
Cons: "No ability to checkin other than at airport counter"
Pros: "Great experience"
Pros: "The fare"
Cons: "Food/snack, which was non existent; the crew did not even offer the typical, cheap little bag of pretzel, nuts, or chips to customers. It was sad, all for additional income."
Pros: "Couldn't have asked for a better flight!"
Cons: "Delay luggage"
Cons: "I could not check in online nor selecting a seat in advance. Getting the boarding pass and the seat was a nightmare. British neither American could not help me out. Horrible experience"
Pros: "Pleased to get luggage with tight connections. Exceptional crew RSW- Charlotte. Good legroom in overseas flight . Please do on all flights"
Cons: "Tv screen didn’t work on trans Atlantic flight"
Pros: "The flight crew was quite lovely."
Cons: "People all over the coach section were complaining about not being able to sit together. Families with babies, couples, even ours (though the kids are old enough for me not to be truly worried as some were). Somehow reservations seems to have messed up an entire flight. We gave up trying to fix it for fear they would make it worse. Then the woman at the gate tried to get folks to volunteer to give up their seats on an overbooked flight. But she was screaming at us. Unbelievably unpleasant to be yelled at over and over again and told we could lose our seats. The poor weather likely caused flights to be rerouted into PHL so our flight out to SFO ended up 1/3 empty. FABULOUS. But the gate experience was horrible and the legroom, had it been a full flight, was miserable. I'm in search of an airline with a humane approach."
Cons: "Was missed due to delayed flight"
Cons: "The terminal 52A-J is a disgrace"
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "Nothing I didnt like"
Cons: "No signage for checking bags. Was total cluster. No one knew where to take bags or what line to be in. Employees kept telling us we were in the wrong line but didn’t seem to tell us what was the correctly line."
Pros: "Flight attendants actually seemed to care about what they were doing. Seats were pretty comfy for once."
Cons: "Flight delayed with no explanation or apologies. Putting two and two together from the airport monitors it looks like they had to swap planes due to a scheduling or maintenance issue. Just another chapter in the neverending saga of delayed American airlines flights"
Pros: "Boarding, comfortable seats, clean"
Cons: "Mediocre service, choice of food was down to one option (and I was on the 2nd row)"
Pros: "Flexibility and helpfulness of staff."
Cons: "I no longer fit in the seats because they keep shrinking the pitch"
Pros: "Quick and did good job"
Cons: "After flying Japan Airlines I wish there were more free food and entertainment"
Cons: "No room, limited entertainment, mediocre food. Was a very uncomfortable, long flight! Luggage late coming off plane, missed connecting flight and was not very helpful in getting rebooked."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "No leg room, hot plane, airline staff is friendly but clearly bored."
Pros: "Good free entertainment. Thanks."
Cons: "No good free snacks. Only free drinks."
Cons: "That fact that on both ways they changed our flights which either we got to the destination late or we had to run across the airport so we don't miss our flights"
Pros: "Flight on time. Crew were pleasant."
Cons: "Usb charger would not charge tablet in flight. Tried multiple sources since there were 4 of us-none worked."
Cons: "The first class flight attendants were VERY RUDE to the passengers getting on the plane, especially the male flight attendant. While serving drinks, instead of saying things like "pardon me", they would say "move" (as was said directly to me) and get out of the way" (as I herd him say to another passinger). Very disrespectful way to treat a person, let alone a paying customer! Btw...I am a middle class 5' 11" tall college educated male."
Cons: "I paid $75.00 to take an earlier flight and Americans crew error nullified this. I feel ripped off."
Pros: "Comfortable seats. Flight left on time"
Cons: "The flight crew was extremely unfriendly especially a redhead woman with short hair. When it was time for beverages, she would yell out at each passenger "beverage!" She had no manners. Probably the worse I've ever had experienced"
Pros: "Everything. I was amazed and extra appreciative that my checked bag made what turned out to be a very tight connection! Thanks!"
Cons: "Everything was great. I would like to connect that it would be nice to have a not applicable rating option for food and entertainment as they are often not applicable but having to choose something effects the overall rating."
Pros: "This leg of the trip was not packed. There was an empty seat between me and the person next to me"
Cons: "This flight was 6 hours. It did not have frontal entertainment, which was not pleasant. They did not offer blankets. The plane was cold as I boarded the plane. I asked for a blanket and was advised they didn't have any. I was so cold the entire flight that I still have a cold due to the flight. I froze the entire flight. I stuffed my arms in my shirt and let my hair down for warmth. Also, I learned my lesson. Pack my own blankie for comfort. I checked my carry on in Aruba due to overhead capacities. My bag had my sweatshirt and the blankie Delta bankie I acquired when I flew from SFO to ATL."
Cons: "We were delayed by a mechanical then we waited another hour after that until they finally decided to take some people off because we were weight restricted. Then we waited another hour while they changed their minds and brought us back to the gate to get the people back. Then when we got into SFO at 1 am we had to wait because they had another plane parked at out gate."
Pros: "Crew was friendly. Seats comfortable for economy. Routine pretzel/cookie/peanuts and beverage. The crew picks up the garbage almost immediately after giving it me...huh? Then I'm left holding it the remainder of the flight when the come back through again. Now for the kicker....I had two flights the same day so I opted to buy the All Day Pass for $25.95!!! What? It was a 2 hour flight each way... Can't they prorate for flight duration or something??!! I ended up watching 1 movie "Superman vs Batman" that was 1 of 4 options of movies that come with the $25.95 package. Other movies available are an additional $5.99 to "rent". Wow...ruined."
Cons: "See the pro section it won't let me copy and paste into the con section."
Pros: "Service was outstanding, stewardess was funny, plane was very clean. I will switch from Southwest! Good job!"
Cons: "It was very delayed which I understand happens but then we arrived in San Francisco and were delayed on the runway because of the gate. I think at this point moving us to an open gate would have been nice - we had been delayed for so long - my 8 year old daughter was really having a hard time. Instead we had to sit and wait for 20 more minutes once we were on the ground. This seems avoidable to me."
Cons: "crew delay, delayed our flight and ruined our whole day...really disappointed"
Cons: "Having missed my scheduled flight, when I got on the later flight, we waited an hour on the tarmac to takeoff and 40 minutes on the tarmac in San Francisco for a gate. Basically three hours of sitting on a tarmac all day because gates weren't available. How can that possibly be? Do you not know the plane is coming? Terrible."
Pros: "Entertainment, decent snacks."
Cons: "Delay due to A/C repair, the constant automated video announcements for boarding, cruising, seat belts, and landing. Experience felt cold and utilitarian."
Pros: "Everything was great for a 45 min flight."
Cons: "No issues"
Pros: "Staff at LAX was helpful and tried helping me get to my next flight by moving me to front of plane at the end of flying."
Cons: "My flight to SFO was delayed so it made me miss my next flight. I ran trying to make it to that gate with a 20 pound backpack on my back, couldn't stop coughing for the rest of the trip after that. American Airlines staff told me that I can pay $75 dollars extra to secure a seat for the next flight 6 hours away. I told them I am not paying anymore because it wasn't my fault I missed this flight. Then, they lost my suitcase so they took 30 minutes to find it. I tried boarding with the priority pass members because my new ticket they gave me was for priority and one of the American Airlines staff members kept getting in my face until I was at the back of the line because I was in boarding group 4. I just never have been treated so poorly before my any airline. I travel often so I will never take American Airlines again. The final straw was another delay at my last layover in PHL, which made me and up traveling for a total of 21 hours."
Cons: "All 3 of my flights were delayed due to mechanical issues. GET IT TOGETHER"
Pros: "All hostes are nice"
Cons: "İt was Delay almost 90 mins and the plane was so cold:)"
Cons: "Flight was over two hours delayed, the gate crew did not do a good job announcing the new delay times and reasons for the delays."
Cons: "I'll never book AA again."
Pros: "Very helpful people. From the from desk to the in flight crew they answered my questions. Had a weird gate where it's a satellite gate with American Eagle, little confusing but they helped me out."
Cons: "Sat on the runway for like an hour. 100% not their fault, and they kept us in the loop the whole time. Really not a complaint about them. SFO is just always sucked in with fig in the morning."
Pros: "FINALLY American has up to date aircraft!!! Five years ago half the seatbacks and lighting on long distance flights didn't work. Swore I would never fly them again. They have redeemed themselves. nice aircraft"
Cons: "Inflight movie questionable. Couldn't figure out wifi entertainment options from inflight magazine ( over 60) and staff too busy to assist ( though didn't ask - just could see they had their hands full with beverage service). Would recommend video instructions after preflight safety video for tech unsavvy travelers. Also reminder on reservation to bring your own headsets and electronic devices."
Pros: "I LOVED the staff on this flight. Especially the man, I didn't catch his name but he was the friendliest flight attendant I have ever met. He had a warm smile the whole flight and helped me get an ice pack for my back when I was in pain. Every time he got something for someone he was smiling and happy which made me and my husband smile and happy. He should be recognized because he made our experience very enjoyable. I have never been on a flight where the service was constant, all of the flight attendants walked up and down the aisles throughout the flight making sure everyone was doing good. Typically, they go down the aisle with the service carts once and thats it, but they made sure everyone was taken care of for the whole flight. Thank you for the great flying experience after a long and tiring trip!! We were dreading the flight but the staff was great."
Cons: "Waiting in the Charlotte Airport for the flight to board was a bit irritating because the two girls that were supposed to call the sections for the flight were on their phones and not very present with what was going on. We boarded late and i am not sure if this is because the flight itself was late or they were just slow with the process.. The only thing I would complain about the flight itself is that we had to wait on our plane for about an hour after we landed. This, I know- has nothing to do with AA and the service/staff. I think this is something that SFO is responsible for, and I felt bad that people were taking it out on the crew."
Cons: "American Airlines is the worst airlines of ever flown time and time again they let me down I didn't get me there on time and I spent the night in an airplane they wouldn't touch down in Jackson and aborted the mission house lights on the runway was not working when any other airline already landed that night so we spent the night going back to North Carolina and I didn't even take care of hotels or get us a cabin or anything to get to the hotel so that sums it up I'm not show"
Pros: "Courtesy and helpful attitude if the crew"
Cons: "Seats had a small legroom. Headsets were available at a cost"
Pros: "Everything went smoothly"
Cons: "Entertainment was terrible No free wifi, no tv screens on seats"
Cons: "Old plane Old entertainment system. I flew a United flight last week that had tv screens on every seat and free wifi"
Pros: "Comfortable enough"
Cons: "No films"
Pros: "Besides how dirty the plane was, everything else was as expected. Crew was polite."
Cons: "The airplane was very dirty with food littered on the seats, floor and tray table. The windows had disgusting grease. Terrible cleanliness. The passenger before me might have been very disgusting but it's the airline's responsibility to check these things and clean their aircraft for the next passenger."
Pros: "Friendly staff, safe flight,."
Cons: "Checking in for bags. The employees were not very helpful. In the past, they would put your bags that now I checked, onto the conveyor belt. Now it's truly DIY (do it yourself). On the flight to San Francisco, no free snacks were offered but on the return flight they were given out - no questions asked. Where is the customer service for the little things?"
Cons: "Wait for more than two hours then canceled"
Cons: "Not crowded. On time"
Pros: "The quick boarding"
Cons: "I did not get my drink due to the short flight"
Pros: "plane is new/crew was friendly"
Cons: "no legroom/food was horrible; worst ever on any flight I have taken to and from korea. Worst"
Cons: "Plane was cold! But better than hot!"
Pros: "Great smooth boarding process, prompt flight, and helpful flight staff. Bathrooms were clean and convenient"
Cons: "As is typical for airplanes, uncomfortable seats and little space to maneuver into the isle."
Cons: "Connecting flight from Orlando, FL to San Francisco, CA. Departed on time but still arrive 40 minutes after schedule. Need to have more accurate time. Almost cause me to miss my next flight."
Pros: "I was asleep in this flight & was not bothered during beverage service. This flight was only 2 & 1/2 hrs"
Pros: "Access to in flight entertainment."
Cons: "Air vent pressure was lacking Cramped quarters but it is expected in economy."
Cons: "That i sat at the airport for seven hours cause my flight was delayed. Then i was in traffic for an hour and half which made me have to call in on my night shift job. Not happy what so ever"
Cons: "The seats are Uncomfortable. The food no longer exists. They give you two ounces of drink"
Pros: "Departure and arrival were on schedule."
Cons: "We booked a flight on ANA Airlines specifically for our trip to Japan. However, upon arriving at the airport to board our plane we discovered the flight was operated by another carrier. Out intent and desire was to fly on ANA."
Pros: "We arrived safely on time."
Cons: "Bathroom is too small. Announcements were anxiety inducing. Sick people on the airplane spreading germs."
Pros: "I was able to board early since I have a United MileagePlus Explorer card."
Cons: "The seats in economy has very limited legroom and the large and over weight Caucasian seating next to me frequently took the arm rest and cross over into my space. The airplane did not have individual monitors. And trying to watch a movie on my phone over United's wi-fi was a terrible experience since the signal keeps dropping."
Pros: "On time from Checking In and Departure"
Pros: "smooth flight, good service"
Cons: "hold up to board family with 2 much luggage, overhead bins 2 small"
Cons: "Had to circle 3 time before landing due to air traffic."
Cons: "Too many delays, nothing was offered. Nothing was given or comp; Food, water, bags, seat upgrades, not flying untied again"
Pros: "Crew kept passengers informed about changing information"
Pros: "Delays 2 hours"
Cons: "delay too long"
Cons: "Travelling with United Airlines company you have to know that you need to download the UA app before your flight otherwise you need to pay for the internet during the flight to download the app. Without this app any movie on your device wouldn't played."
Pros: "Flight was shorter than expected"
Cons: "Bathrooms were dirty and sound wasn't working for first in flight movie"
Pros: "Excellent attentive care."
Cons: "My first 5 hour long flight did not have a complimentary snack."
Pros: "It was a sparsely populated flight, I was able to lay down and sleep, very nice!"
Cons: "No problems, al was fine and I slept very well. No complaints!"
Pros: "Despite the lack of entertainment options, the ability to upgrade to economy plus made my flight comfortable."
Cons: "No entertainment on board, and you need a plugin installed on your mobile device to make their streaming service work, which I didn't have."
Pros: "Not much ~ no movies, no rental video device ~ nothing"
Pros: "The flight was great and crew was awesome!"
Cons: "There was no working wifi, which was a bit of a bummer. But certainly not the end of the world!"
Cons: "After booking my flight months in advance United change are seating and separated us. Spent hours on the phone with no explanation and no assistance. Didn't even help me upgrade when I was willing to pay for it. The worst of it all was the nonsense that their customer service kept spewing. Brushed and straight up lied to. Will do everything possible to never fly united again"
Pros: "Great help from all the ground staff, especially in Osaka."
Cons: "The food was okay but you need to offer herbal teas for those who want something warm (planes are cold) but not caffeinated."
Cons: "Flight was delayed several times due to no pilot"
Pros: "Porter Service in Las Vegas. The gentleman who helped us was awesome. The rest of the crew don't even compare to the Japanese in service"
Cons: "why would you charge $6 for a 1.5 hour flight to watch TV. Didn't even have time for a movie..."
Pros: "Overall, the plane seemed newer and was very comfortable."
Cons: "The boarding process was a little disorganized, but being in group 5, it didn't really affect me too much. The crew on board did their job, but they could check on the passengers a little bit more and possibly pass out water or refills to drinks."
Pros: "Boarding was consistent and timely"
Cons: "Older, worn interior, especially if seats are pushed back"
Pros: "They let us know ahead of time so we could arrive later to the airport, and did not have to wait in the airport."
Cons: "- They were very strict about carry-on luggage size, and insisted even after the flight being 3 hours late. My carry-on fit into their overhead compartment just fine. - No food was offered during the 6 hours flight. - Chairs in coach are uncomfortable for long flights (same as some other airlines I've flown with). Feet or head rest could be nice additions that don't require much additional space per passenger."
Cons: "the airplane is really old! Don't have any amenities."
Pros: "Pilot was wonderful and did a fabulous job landing in the windy conditions."
Cons: "The flight attendant was dismissive and rude. The united terminal at DFW was terrible. Dirty, old and just plain disgusting. Craft was a bit run down and dirty as well"
Pros: "Crew was courteous, though not very helpful. I liked the convenience of a direct flight."
Cons: "First the change fees. To reschedule for a week later would have cost over $800. I only paid $540 for the RT ticket! Second, my seat was broken and would not stay upright. Attendant simply told me to not lean back. Furthermore the audio in my wife's seat did not work; only produced static. Although we had these problems, and the plane was not full, the attendant did not offer a solution - like changing seats. Chinese airlines offer free second bag, and not cost changes. I will probably choose another carrier, even if it cost a bit more, for the extra flexibility and service"
Pros: "It's always a mess. SFO should put more chairs on the main level at international boarding and have people sit up there until their boarding class is called. it's simply too tight at the actual gate to have everyone clamorous to get on the plane"
Cons: "Flying in general just sucks unless you're in business class."
Pros: "Very helpful and attentive from start to finish"
Cons: "Small seats I'm not obease but I am thick I was a lil cramped"
Pros: "Good, easy"
Pros: "Crew, Entertainment options, spacious seating"
Cons: "Long wait on Tarmac and not being able to add my boarding pass to my Apple wallet"
Cons: "I ordered and paid for food that they forgot to serve me. I had to go to the back to ask for my food. When I did they were rude about it. UA has offered a coupon for 50.00 that I can use if I fly with them again-- which would cost about 1000. No thanks, United. I'll fly with China Air."
Pros: "Early arrival, ahead of schedule"
Cons: "No entertainment/ used dish tv ... No signal"
Pros: "The plane didn't crash. Quite possibly the only nice thing I can say about this flight."
Cons: "No built in personal entertainment for a 12 hour flight. If you had already downloaded the United app, you could connect a personal device to their wifi for free and watch from there (if you didn't download the app prior to takeoff, you were screwed). Also, no USB charging outlets were available. I live in Korea and don't have an American style outlet to connect to a USB, so my devices died. The provided tiny aisle TV which played programmed shows and movies kept freezing, skipping, and turning off. Entertainment is usually the saving grace for budget int'l flights, whose food, service, and comfort can be expected to suck. Next time I'll shell out for Korean Air or Asiana."
Pros: "The flight was everything I imagined."
Pros: "The flight attendants were nice"
Cons: "Missing my international connection, having to spend 24 hours in San Francisco, not able to reschedule on a different flight. United paid for my hotel and gave me three $7 food vouchers. They only gave me 4oz of soda...I asked for the can and the flight attendant was rude. I wouldn't pay $7.99 for 3 hours of wifi."
Pros: "Plane was not crowded. Less claustrophobic. Bathrooms clean."
Cons: "Sound system. The PA blasting through ear phones is annoying."
Pros: "My flights/trip to Billund were rebooked, because of Lufthansa's strike. So I travelled a different route; Sacramento to Houston, to Toronto, to Copenhagen and from there to Billund."
Pros: "I liked everything feel comfortable flying by air plane"
Pros: "Liked the ease of boarding and cleanliness of the plane!"
Cons: "No reclining of seats"
Cons: "First I bought a ticket from Spirit Airlines SFO to MCO for 309$, then I saw charges from frontier Airline, frontier airlines bought a ticket for me too for 287$, when I was just watching checking the price. Then I compared the tickets, both the time, but from Frontier Airlines was cheaper then I stayed with frontier and cancel the other reservation from Spirit Airlines the next day I see frontier airlines also cancelled that reservation and I had to rebook another ticket for 496$, the price went up, then I had to pay 187$ extra, IT WAS A FRAUD JOB FROM FRONTIER AIRLINES, I can prove everything above with the receipts and the dates on it, the worse experience I had"
Pros: "Bag charged"
Pros: "Arrived 40 minutes early so can't be too sad about that especially since a gate was available immediately. Jet bridge in SF was heated but in Denver where it was colder and he had to wait it was not. The check in lady clearly did not care about her job at all I'm Denver. Frontier is a budget airline which for this trip worked for me as I was able to pack everything in a "personal item" and don't mind sitting in the back of the plane, I got lucky and got asigned a window seat. No drinks offeed without a charge which I don't agree with but again you get what you pay for. And it's way better than Spirit."
Cons: "Everything is an upcharge - carryon, a seat that reclines, etc."
Cons: "Flight was delayed several hours. This led to a loss of work time and money for me. I will not fly Frontier again for a business trip."
Cons: "8 hour layover in airport, 2 hours holdover inside plane cabin on departure flight. On return flight 2 hour hold in cabin on tarmac while other frontier plane waits to take off. They were still cleaning up their mess a week later, claiming issues were due to weather while pilots admitted otherwise and all other airlines continued to fly with no issue. I will avoid this airline in the future, its not worth spending a little less to risk your vacation. Also if you have back problems none of their coach seats recline they are so cheap."
Pros: "Flight left and arrived on time."
Cons: "Seats didn't recline and website is misleading when it comes to purchasing seats. I was very uncomfortable."
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: "This airline comes up with every idea possible to charge the costomer. I give the airline a star for being sneaky and sly and having rules and policies to rip off passengers. Because it is brilliant that they con you without breaking any laws."
Pros: "I felt deceived by Frontier. I knew paying the low fair I was going to get a bare bones trip. I was fine with paying for my own drink. I cannot believe that the airline is charging $40 bags for a carry on!!!!!! Also I had to pay an additional $27 each so my husband and I could sit together. Shame on you frontier. Of given the choice I will NEVER fly with this airline again. Everyone I tell about my experience has their own negative story to tell about Frontier. I suggest you change your practice before you go out of business. My final cost was double the original price of my original ticket. Just price the ticket as it should be."
Pros: "Getting OFF the plane"
Cons: "The new seats are flat out terrible. They're thin, poorly padded, and uncomfortable after only 15 minutes of sitting on them. I'm 6'-4", tall, but not a giant and my knees were against the seat in front of me. Legroom was nonexistent. When the stewardesses came through with food and beverages, it was $2 for a can of soda. So after paying an extra $30 to check one bag, and then paying ridiculous prices for a can of soda, and getting cramps after a 2-hour flight with no legroom, Frontier has moved to the bottom of my list for any future flights."
Cons: "To crowded to move. I am 6 1" and 200 lds. That is not to big a deal by todays standards . I won't fly Frontier again because of the way the seats are arranged. First time I sat in a bulk head seat and couldn't get out without climbing over fellow passengers Ray Pope"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled."
Pros: "Pilot was a cowboy, quick taxi and fast flight, arrived at gate 45 minutes early. On a late flight, the early arrival was a welcomed outcome."
Cons: "I checked a hard case fishing rod tube that contained a brand new fishing rod. The case can be opened from the top and side and both can be locked. The side was the only thing locked and top opening had a simple clip on it so anyone could to easily open it up and inspect the inside. Someone cut the side lock off, took the case apart obviously looking for something and then jammed everything back together securing the cut off lock with a zip tie. After I got home late that night I noticed my lock was cut off and rod broken in 2 pieces. Very disappointed, hopefully someone at Frontier reimburses me for the damage."
Pros: "I really am not the type to write bad reviews, but I couldnt believe how unprofessional the crew was. They were extremely loud talking about their own personal issues with each other, barely made eye contact with any guests, and when I asked for a cup of water, I swear the woman felt like I was asking too much. It was expensive to pay for either a carry on bag or a checked bag and you had to pay for a seat if you didnt want to be stuck in the middle. Not a great experience."
Pros: "free water"
Cons: "the flight was late coming and going by over an hour."
Pros: "wide seat areas/ comfortable"
Cons: "rude crew / lost our baggage / no return calls until next day late about the drop off/ we went back to airport and pick up next day/ wasting time"
Pros: "New seats were slim and yet comfortable and full in the seat. On time departure and arrival Price"
Cons: "No coffee? tea? really? Leg room minimal Tried to choose seat online but only responded if I selected one costing yet more. Only 1 carry on no matter size Not enough space to open lap top fully with small table."
Pros: "We didn't crash."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for two hours before boarding, with no explanation. I chalked that up to winter travel and didn't worry about it. But then it was delayed for over an hour *after* boarding. Again, there was no apology, no explanation -- the crew literally said nothing to anyone until finally a clamor rose among the passengers to find out for us what the hell was going on. You know what they said? The airline was so understaffed that day that they didn't have enough people to get the baggage up the ramp and onto the plane! THAT'S why we sat there for over an hour! As well, I have never been more crowded on a plane in my life. I am a thin woman of average height, yet I couldn't put a book in the seat pocket in front of me because my knees were already touching it. Bags cost money, Drinks, including coffee and soda, cost money. And no one on the crew ever smiled. I will never fly Frontier again."
Pros: "Very competitive pricing, good departure times, departures were on time and friendly crew."
Cons: "Changes need make to online check in. I selected our seats 24 Hrs in advance and the ticket desk gave our seats to another couple. Flight was not full so the issues was resolved. embarrassing to staff and customers. (both partes)"
Pros: "Worst experience in my entire life. Staffs were rude, unofficial, mean while dealing with passenger..They charge 60$ for a carry on to use a over head cabin. ... Rediculous!!!!! They are very unfair.."
Pros: "on Time."
Cons: "Check in by computer 24 hours in advance did not work. The guy in front of me at the check in line had the same problem."
Pros: "Everything has a price - including water and carry ons; disappointing"
Pros: "Our flight didn't get canceled."
Cons: "I did not like that the airline does not mention anything about paying for carry on, paying for all drinks and food or paying to choose a seat, which were extremely uncomfortable by the way. All of these costs combine could have equaled or exceeded other ticket prices. It felt misleading and not worth the effort. I also thought that the sales pitch on the flight was disruptive and annoying. If you are going to represent yourself as a budget airline, stop trying to nickle and dime me everywhere you can."
Cons: "Everything. Frontier is awful and I will never fly with them again. They cancelled the flight for "weather" more than 12 hours in advance. By the time the flight was supposed to leave, flights were taking off from O'Hare without any problem. Next, they could not have been less cooperative in helping my find an alternative route to San Fran. After more than 2 hours of arguing with Frontier personnel, they magically found a way for me to get there via Denver. Finally, once I boarded the flight to Denver, the crew could not have been any less competent. I saw at least two instances where they had given away the seat of someone who had checked into the flight, then had to scramble to find them a new seat. Frontier is the worst."
Cons: "More delays, few answers, no satisfaction. Do whatever you can to avoid flying Frontier."
Pros: "The crew was fine."
Cons: "First, I was not made aware that checking a bag, selecting a seat, and carrying on a bag would each be extra charges on top of the ticket price. If I had known that, I would have used a different airline, because the prices were relatively similar after all of the added costs. Secondly, the actual plane ride was incredibly uncomfortable. The seats on these airplanes do not recline (which is frustrating for a 3.5 - 4 hour flight), drinks or snacks are not free, and most of the other passengers were rude and difficult. I would not recommend this airline for any flights longer than 1.5 hours."
Cons: "I had a prior international flight that landed at 5AM that morning. I hustled through customs to try to make this flight. I asked multiple TSA agents how worried I should be about making my Frontier flight and I was assured that I would have time to make it. After running through the A Terminal, I got to my gate and the doors were already closed and no agent was there. I feel let down by the TSA agents."
Pros: "The boarding process was easy enough."
Cons: "The crew was absolutely clueless. Half way through the flight no less than 6 sleeping passengers were woken and shuffled about because they discovered two other passengers had seated themselves in the priority area. I understand the desire to ensure passengers are seated properly. However, it was ludicrous to wake 6 people who were not at fault for this error on their part. They should have been more vigilant at the start, or left the rest of us alone after the fact. Terrible understanding of customer service. Also, our flight arrived early, however, they didn't have the appropriate gate available. Poor planning as we knew we'd be early about half way through the flight. Would not fly again, not because of the disorganized gate business, however, there's a real lack of customer focus on this airline."
Cons: "it took 45 minutes for my bag to come out"
Cons: "we paid for our carry on... There was no drink available... And very impolite flight attendant..."
Cons: "Crew was condescending and rude. There were young adults in a group around me and my companion, who also look young, and the way the flight attendant spoke to us about technology was rude."
Cons: "Frontier has trained their staff and written their website to "threaten" passengers into buying extra's like bags, assigned seats ."if your bag doesn't fit we will charge you 120 at the gate", I cant' guarantee a refund" "you may not get a seat if you don't buy one online (they warn you three times on the website before you can complete online check in...we were "randomly assigned" 6 seats together for free by skipping the buy seats step and completing online check in). On frontier you can only take one personal item for free. carry on is $70 (35 one way) and checked bags are $60 (30 one way)...MORE at the airport. I also fault Kayak here, they don't compare apples to apples - united carry on bags are free.. I bought 5 checked bags (6 people flying), but we decided to just do a personal item in the end. Turns out you can only get bag refunds at the airport ticket office ..not online or by phone. The ticket agent said there was no guarantee we would get a refund, but she would put a note in our record. Hmmm....prepaid $300 for a service we didn't use and may not get refunded. Online check in tries to bully you into buying seats...you have to say no 3 times before they let you complete check in. That would have been another $120 for the 6 of us. The best for last. On the return flight home, we went to ticketing agent to get refund for return bags ( the outbound ticket agent would only put a note in our record for the outbound flight, so we had to stand in line again for the return flight). She told us there was a gate change and sent us to the international terminal (a different terminal than the rest of Frontier flights). She marked the new terminal on our tickets. We were at the gate for 45 minutes and realized there were only about 10 other passengers for our flight there. I tried to call frontier on the white airport phone. They just had a recording and told me to dial an 800 number. I was on hold for 20 minutes before i got a person who said he couldn't get me any information. The flight wasn't listed on the departures board in the international terminal we had been sent to, so finally we decided we'd better go to the original gate. We had to go to another termanial, go through security again, and found our flight boarding at the original gate. The woman who sent us to the wrong terminal was at original gate loading passengers, so she knew there had been a mistake. She said they had made two announcements. The trouble is, the announcements were not audible in the international terminal. I told her there were several other passengers at the wrong gate, one of whom was elderly and would need help making the flight, No apology, and when we continued to try to get help for the other passengers, they, told us to move away from the podium or they would call security!!! ARGH!"
Pros: "everyone did a great job - especially one of the gals at the check in counter and boarding area - witnessed her handle several frustrated travelers with courteous professional ease. (did not catch her name, but overheard she was from el Salvador) - thanks Frontier, you Rock"
Cons: "The onward flight was cancelled and I wasn't provided an immediate alternative flight. On cancelling my entire itinerary, I was charged a cancellation fee and not provided a refund. I would never fly from frontier again."
Pros: "Staff were nice"
Cons: "Paid $85 for my 2 pieces of luggage - what a trap!"
Cons: "en retard de 2h pour l'embarquement et payement du bagage au retour de 45$"
Cons: "all the additional fees, cancels out any savings on fare"
Cons: "The pilots were an hour late after we had already boarded and provided no explanation or appologies."
Cons: "Delayed again. This time by 2.5+ hours. They nickel and dime you for everything. - charges to check a bag, for carry-on baggage, to get a seat assignment, for a soft drink....I will not fly Frontier again if I can help it."
Pros: "Flight was for my son. Tried to checkin and was not allowed to, since it just changed to the 45 min mark before departure. Ticket was auto cancelled. Went to southwest and booked a ticket on their direct flight which was to leave 10 min later than the Frontier flight. It actually left 8 min early, while the Frontier flight was still boarding."
Cons: "No obvious warning that Frontier requires checkin 45 min before departure or they auto cancel the ticket. Received an email from kayak 3 hours before departure, no warning there. Did not notice any warning when buying the ticket. Frontier is at the bottom of my list, for choice of carriers."
Pros: "Frontier claims to be the cheapest, but they add additional fees to bring a carry on item (it ends up being cheaper to check your bag) and to select your seat when checking in."
Cons: "First of all, they charged me to check into my flight. My $131 ticket turned into $183 and I hadn't even checked in for the way back. Not only did I have to pay for a seat at check in, but I had to pay $40 to brin a carry on!!!! So what the heck did my ticket pay for?!?! Once I choked down the extra $53, I went to the gate and the flight was cancelled. The gate attendant offered a refund or to put me on a flight the next day. He wouldn't look at other airlines for me. The only nice thing they did was make the refund process easy on the phone, since I had to leave the terminal to find another ticket counter to help me. I will not be flying frontier. Ever."
Pros: "We got to St. Louis early"
Pros: "The crew treats you better than crews on more expensive airlines, and they have a great sense of humor. You can tell that positivity and how they interact with passengers is a priority in the hiring and training process. A lot of people have complained about having to pay extra for carry-ons and other luggage, but Frontier is REALLY clear about their policy for baggage when you book, so these people shouldn't have been shocked. It is a great deal for people who only travel with one small bag, and I'm glad that there is an airline that offers such cheap flights for light travelers. If you need to take a lot of luggage, you can add the cost as you are booking and then decide if it's the best deal before you finalize payment. Overall, it was a very good experience. You aren't going to get a ton of extras for free on this airline, but if getting to point B from point A with a nice flight crew is all that matters to you, Frontier is a great deal."
Pros: "Pay extra for another airlines. Frontier is uncomfortable and you have to pay for everything after the ticket. You only end up saving minimal amounts."
Cons: "the time , the plan is not on time and the customers service they are not patients ."
Pros: "Liked the meal and next flight coupons."
