Cons: "Our flight was late, and we had a sick passenger and had to wait until they leave however many of us had connecting flights in which we missed. The flight attendant should have allowed the one's connecting a flight leave first."

Pros: "We flew first class, so the legroom was good, and the sets weren't narrow as they are in coach."
Cons: "Flying first class domestically now is really more like flying coach used to be 20 or 30 years ago. It's very basic, and the extra cost is simply for a bit more breathing room."

Also none of the windows on any of these small planes line up with the actual positions of seats and it sucks."

Pros: "I'm very Thankful that I had no delays departing and arriving I liked that the flight was on time"
Cons: "I wasn't aware of fees being in place to change for earlier or later flights. But the fees don't apply when the airline needs your seat. I value my time and was unpleasantly surprised that I had to wait 4hrs for my scheduled fligh bc I didn't have the fee to change to an earlier time"

Cons: "Was delayed 1.5hrs"

Pros: "On time departure and slightly early arrival"
Cons: "Airline food is just so inadequate in every way."

Pros: "Not much to like since the flight was canceled."
Cons: "Flight was canceled. The system tried to automatically rebook us but gave us a new itinerary from our original departure point, apparently un aware that we had already left. So, we were stuck in Atlanta airport with no good way to our final destination. Instead of waiting for 22 hours for the next available flight, or driving for 7 hours from Atlanta to Cincinnati, we had to fly into another city and drive to Cincinnati from there AT OUR OWN EXPENSE. It was a rebooking nightmare."

Pros: "Overall flight was nice, but almost miss my flight!"
Cons: "Almost miss my flight due to Delta being short staffed at the ticket counter in the early am. Had a small issue to validate my passport in the automated cheek-in botths and waited over an hour to get them to personally validate. terrible experience. There were several of us with the same problem. I chose Delta given their prestige for great customer service, but they definitely need to do something about some of the folks at Logan's terminal."

Pros: "The check in personnel was fantastic - very helpful and friendly with a very relevant story that made me feel more relaxed. Our not so good seats were somewhat compensated by the plane staff that gave us each a full beverage can, extra pretzels, and some cookies."
Cons: "Our seats that we'd picked out seemed to get changed when we checked in and we got out in the last row, which had no window, and smelled strongly of bathroom cleaner."

Pros: "Clear instructions, clean plane, flight on time."

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "DCA poorly organized"

Pros: "Food was far better coming back than going there."
Cons: "No working USB to hook electronics up. What good is it to stream onboard content when on a 10H flight my phone dies in 4H... Stick to paper books next time."

Cons: "Lack of a crew delayed flight 4 + hours."

Pros: "Boarding was quick and well organized. Crew was friendly."
Cons: "By the time the snack service was completed, the plane was already descending and the crew had to pick up the service items before people had a chance to finish."

Pros: "I've been flying Spirit lately to save money, so know that this is my comparison. American Airlines staff were friendly and helpful, the website was easy to use for things such as changing seats and adding bags, and I really appreciate the updates from AA via email and text. I appreciate the snack."

Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "Delayed on the tarmac"

Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "It’s a commuter. It’s tiny. In flight left trash with us till plane was about to land. Pilots seemed inexperienced. Landing was hard, braking was hard approach was awkward and it was a beautiful day with no wind. Pilot shortage isn’t helping the regionals."

Pros: "Nothing about the flight we screwed around before takeoff, in the air as well as on the ground. Wasted an hour and a half, missed my connection"
Cons: "Everything."

Cons: "Seat was uncomfortable, no entertainment, barely a snack. Sadness."

Pros: "Flight attendant was dilligent"

Pros: "NA"
Cons: "NA"

Pros: "Finishing my flight, being able to say I'll never fly American again."
Cons: "Without notice or warning, I was required to pay $200 for my dog, tranferring from Alaska Air, to ride in cargo for the 2nd leg of my trip. My fare was approx. $84. They would not accept cash, but made me spend another $5 on a "gift card," because I don't own credit cards. Rude, uncaring, marginally competent ground crew."

Cons: "Spotiy WIFI for $12. Not worth it. Had to log in multiple times. Still wouldn’t work well"

Pros: "I am so glad that there is a direct flight from Des Moi es to Philly. Our flight home arrived a little early and the crew was very responsive and professional."

Pros: "Nothing special"
Cons: "BWI check-in crew is not friendly, not related to Japan Airline."

Pros: "I got to Boston safely and the pilot and attendants did their best jobs. Also my luggage arrived in a timely manner."
Cons: "Your seats are too small even for a relatively small person. You should hire more flight attendants so that they are more available to help customers. We should be fed on flights of 6 hours long. American treats us like chattel and make flying unappealing."

Pros: "The boarding process was easy and the crew was great."
Cons: "Other passengers were annoying. One guy was listening to a baseball game on his phone at full volume on the plane during boarding. Another kept hitting the back of my seat playing a game on the entertainment system. And a flight attendant let a guy stay on his phone, while we taxied for takeoff, having the douchiest conversation in history."

Pros: "Boarding and flight were on time."

Cons: "They were late because of bad scheduling and the gate agent was rude"

Pros: "Very dirty and unconfortable Airport Environment."
Cons: "Combination of Business Class and Economy Class ticket sold by British Airways, although offered as Business Class. Hat a lot of Trouble with British Airways."

Pros: "Even though we were group 6 both ways, boarding was smooth and fast! We arrived early and was able to check our overpacked carry-on. Luggage was unloaded within minutes of our getting to the baggage claim. We were even able to move up to the middle of the plane coming back home!"
Cons: "Nothing comes to mind!"

Pros: "Delicious food. Very smooth flight had a great time traveling with this airline"
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable and tight."

Pros: "Getting out of the plane! and the landing was very good."
Cons: "Bad service no entertainment besides a one very childish movie. My tray stayed with me the whole flight, I had almost to beg to take it and never s flight attendant seem happy, pleasant or even profissional. The landing by the pilots was amazing."

Pros: "Smooth at GRR. A little Delay in CLT. It was a good experience because we weren't on a deadline to be somewhere."

Pros: "Safe, efficient and pleasant flight. I would fly American again. I appreciate getting a soda and snack included."
Cons: "No movie. I got "spoiled" on flight from Seattle to Phoenix with a movie perk. Was looking forward to another on the 2nd leg of our trip. I thought maybe it was an "American" thing. ... but apparently just got lucky on first leg."

Pros: "Smooth ride and friendly helpful airline atendents."

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Before I booked the flight I noticed it was only on time 53% of the time. True to that number we were delayed almost an hour before takeoff. Why schedule fights so close if almost half the time it's delayed? Something needs to change."

Pros: "I paid for extra leg room and I got it. The only thing I was in the row right behind first class they require you to put all of your carry-on above even a purse. I had never had that before but I guess that's common practice."

Cons: "Poor snack options"

Cons: "THe reading light was broken"

Pros: "Outstanding crew and pilot dealt with some tough weather issues"

Pros: "It was all good . I enjoyed the service. Was friendly . Take off and landing went well . The plane was awesome. The temperature in the plane stayed the same . Not to hot or cold . I travel alot for my job . I half to say , this was a great crew ."
Cons: "I honestly can't come up wirh something I didn't like ."

Cons: "One flight attendant in my section (23H), plonked food down on the tray with a curt, "passengers-are-a-nuisance" attitude. Her male colleague, when I asked about a spoon for the tub of ice cream said "It's there. If you can find it, you can eat it." I am a 71 yr old woman, and was shocked to be spoken to with such impertinence. Had I not already been travelling for16 hrs, having started the day in the Occupied Territories, I would have reported him to the senior person on board. I was just too tired."

Cons: "Checking one bag took 30 minutes. Very stressful"

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Reading knight on plane were so dim they were useless"

Cons: "Why are there no more blankets?!?! Or if there are - they are for First Class only. Ridiculous"

Cons: "Requested for wheelchair assistance but none provided?!!"

Pros: "This was my first time flying out of South Bend and I loved the smallness of the airport and the option to take a direct flight to Vegas to cost family. No long lines and crowds made it easy to social distance."
Cons: "I would have liked it the seat reclined slightly or had the adjustable headrest so my head wouldn't flop back and forth while I took a nap."

Pros: "They sat my family together and the crew was amazing."

Cons: "The ticket lady was rude just nasty and upset for no reason."

Cons: "Pathetic rationale for delay"

Pros: "The crew were very friendly."
Cons: "the seats were pretty uncomfortable, that was my main problem with the flight."

Cons: "Unclear pricing for carry on bag, could have saved $30 by paying at the ticket counter (even though I was sent an eticket and boarding pass); got stuck paying $50 at the gate."

Pros: "Price of ticket. Crew was efficient."
Cons: "Baggage limitations are not clear: especially when the ticket says no carryon luggage. What they mean is anything that fits under your seat and is under 20 lbs is OK. Seat did not recline. Leg room was poor."

Pros: "Fast boarding. Crew were pleasant."
Cons: "Free beverages"

Pros: "the crew was very welcoming. and the boarding process was fast."
Cons: "the seats are not comfortable. however I can understand because of the price."

Cons: "Everything is a la carte from food and drink to baggage"

Pros: "The crew was amazing"

Pros: "That we landed safely in 20 mph winds."
Cons: "Stop stuffing too many people in an airplane, stop charging for every little thing, nothing nice or fun about flying in the US.It is just the fastest way to get to places..International airlines are much better and not cattle planes."

Cons: "Short flight"

Cons: "I cancelled this flight and somehow it doesn’t show in your records and now I cant find the cancellation.. I am not in Orlando.. last time I will use Kayak."

Pros: "The staff was great"

Pros: "Price and direct flights to popular destinations."
Cons: "No frills. Charging $5 for a printed boarding pass seems a bit excessive"

Cons: "The airports restaurants closed and security shut down as well. We were prisoners in the airport with only a vending machine. Unbelievable. Believe the Allegiant Air stories from 60 Minutes. The stories are true."

Cons: "Lousy airline. Left gate late and unfriendly crew. Wanted to charge me for carry on."

Cons: "The flight was delayed all day!!!"

Pros: "Non-stop flight at a reasonable price"
Cons: "Food choices are very limited"

Pros: "Price"

Pros: "Would highly recommend the connection and the Allegiant jet was a fairly new Airbus, very comfortable."

Pros: "Crew likes to have fun with their passengers -- making the whole experience that much more enjoyable. It's a budget airline so you have to pay for things like refreshments and snacks (also, carryons and if you want you boarding pass printed at the airport) -- but don't let that sway you! All it takes is a little prior organization (we packed a couple of sandwiches and printed our passes at home, plus packed very light). Overall a great experience."

Pros: "Crew was friendly, seats were very tight. Have to pay for water."

Cons: "Lost my bag"

Pros: "Departure was on time and arrival was a little early! Nonstop flight was great!"
Cons: "Seats are a bit cramped and their is no pocket on the seat back to put your water bottle or book"

Pros: "The friendly staff made our daughters 21 to Vegas absolutely perfect"

Cons: "Bad service. Long waits. No directions at airport from the airline and counter service slow"

Cons: "Not to be helped, but was a bit bumpy."

Cons: "Our flight was delayed dor 10 hours."

Pros: "I am handicapped and was given the best possible service"

Pros: "Easy airport. Easy for rental return, going through security, and walking to the terminal. Quick loading time. Nice, clean plane with plenty of on-board crew to accomodate."
Cons: "Damage to checked baggage from Mesa to SGF. A quality, thick, hard-sided suitcase developed a crack in the side. Abnormal pressure would have had to be applied to cause this type of damage. Cheaper or soft-sided luggage would have experienced damage to the contents. Unfortunately, I did not check the luggage before leaving the airport to file a complaint."

Pros: "The fight"
Cons: "Security"

Pros: "It was so fun to have a flight attendant that had a great sense of humor. She kept us in stitches throughout the flight."

Pros: "I understand the need to make a profit but comfort is probably the most important aspect of any flight......"
Cons: "Min. 40lbs when others are at 50lbs ..... even 2 free suitcases. I understand the need to make a profit but comfort is probably the most important aspect of any flight......"

Pros: "Crew was amazing & child friendly."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "They overcharge for bags and their weight limit is only 40 pounds. They leave the desk and hour before take off which doesn't help people who are running late. They charge you to print out your boarding pass. They don't even send the boarding pass through email, you have to download the app. Overall horrible customer service. When call for customer service you can't even get a human representative. I missed my flight and they didn't even have another flight to to accommodate me to get to my destination and no one at the front desk to talk to."

Pros: "The crew was exceptionally friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Seats don't recline."

Pros: "Easy boarding"
Cons: "Slow to get luggage. Seats not comfortable"

Pros: "everything was organized, friendly and right on time"
Cons: "seats are an in thick. also, too much talking!, why do you need to tell people abc are on the left, def rt three times? they re marked and a few tines not to queue by the bathroom? and in and on... after the safety fdrill, pipe down, its annoying!"

Cons: "The flight was late and we were not given updates until the time we should have been taking off."

Pros: "friendly crew clean plane, speedy service"

Cons: "The flight was delayed 8 hours"

Pros: "Delayed. Boarded. Unboarded. Left sitting when announced 'low fuel'. Claims of weather. Pulled up radar, zero weather to be found!"

Pros: "everything was great everything went smoothly because some of the stuff I had to change at the last minute because I had to get home earlier than I originally planned but everything turned out wonderfully and everything okay even though there was a little delay because of the weather"

Pros: "Paperless boarding was awesome and FREE, no flumbing for boarding passes at TSA or terminal gate. There was no entertianment on this short flight and I didn't buying any food or drinks so I have no rating for this section. To my surprized I was able to purchase Show tickets at a great discount on board only, very cool! Flight was on time both ways! Seat Confront was tight but the website made it clear the seating would be on selected seats and since I didnt pay for the upgraded seating you get what you pay for."
Cons: "The on-line section process was challenging to purchase tickets, not real user friendly had to keep going out of the site and back in again and then after payment was complete the baggage section was incorrect so it had to be fixed at baggage checkin, the baggage fees are cheaper on-line verses at the terminal but max weight was 40lbs the industry standard is 50lb. Didnt like having all the extra fees. All in all there was still a big saving as to going directly to SW Airlines"

Pros: "Not much interaction with crew Felt crammed in"
Cons: "More leg room And don’t slam overheads so hard"

Pros: "Efficient"
Cons: "Free wifi"

Cons: "Be on time!!"

Cons: "Wifi/entertainment didn’t work."

Pros: "The crew did their best considering we were 3 hrs delayed and there were no snacks for any of the passengers."

Pros: "Smooth flight, early arrival."
Cons: "Entertainment Sytem was down for 2/3 of the flight."

Pros: "On time and great professional staff throughout"

Pros: "It was turbulent without warning"

Pros: "Early arrival to DSM."

Pros: "Service was very good, they were on time and considering the flight time food was good too."

Pros: "Boarded on time. Smooth boarding. Departed on time. Landed on time."

Pros: "Well, I got there."
Cons: "Purchased economy plus bundle. United employee closed gate in my face at ORD. United Club toilets were filthy and the worst of my problems was the ridiculous selection of teas. (Toilets outside of United Club much cleaner.) I had an economy plus seat, but this did not allow me to board early. So I boarded late and there was no seat in front of me. So I could not put my carry on in front of me. I asked if I could put my bag in top, but attendant told me that I had to ask the first class person in front of me for a favor and thank them for the favor. I did. But this was one of the more disgusting experiences that I have had on an airplane and I paid an extra 100 USD for the privilege of it."

Pros: "Easy going all the way"

Pros: "The crew was polite and professional. Thanks"
Cons: "Cannot think of a thing"

Pros: "Got me from point A to B"

Pros: "The crew was one of most pleasurable group that I've flown with. Polite AND funny!"

Cons: "In both airports I was wheeled to gates and left in the way of people coming and going. I tried to get the attention of airline employees and when I did they told someone else and so I sat for between 40-60 minutes."

Pros: "Comfy roomy seats, free WiFi, free coffee"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "We landed safely"
Cons: "Delayed 2 hours."

Pros: "The flight was quick and easy"

Pros: "Boarded quickly and on time!"
Cons: "n/a"

Pros: "Left early and arrived early"

Pros: "Nothing I wasn't on it I missed it because of you"
Cons: "My plans for travel were ruined because when I arrived at the airport for my flight I was told it was too late to check my bags, therefore I had to be placed on a later flight which then set off a chain reaction where I lost my rental car and missed various meetings at the event I was supposed to be at my final destination. The main issue was that when I purchased my ticket throughout Kayak YOU NEVER SPECIFIED THAT I SHOULD CHECK MY BAGS 45 MINUTES EARLY OR I WOULD LOOSE MY FLIGHT. YOUR LACK OF CLEAR INSTRUCTION SCREWED UP MY TRIP"

Cons: "I did not like sitting on the runway for 40 minutes I did not like to have to run to catch the next flight I'm 63 years old I do you dont like to run to the next plane"

Cons: "I was traveled no with my wife and my son to Des Moines andI documented our 3 bags in Mexico City and "the first surprise" was that they charged in Mexico n I he front desk about $27 USD per bag...it seemed that the bags were also passengers and " needed to pay"... The big other surprise was when we got to Des Moines and realized all the bags were opened!...my wife's jewelry was stolen!!!! UNITED AIRLINES SUCK!!!!!"

Cons: "Seats are very uncomfortably"

Cons: "The plane was delayed again n again from ,7:30 pm to 11:45pm"

Cons: "Delayed. Missed connection. Happens too often. Moving my business to southwest."

Pros: "The flight I was able to get on eventually had pleasant crew and arrived early."
Cons: "Where to start.... they "delayed" my flight for 11 hrs from 5:55pm to 0700am due to "weather" so no hotel or food vouchers would be issued. THEY ALSO SAID "don't bother going stand by for the other two flights leaving this evening as they will be overbooked or "cancelled" as well. When I walked to customer service they stated it was NOT cancelled but rather "rescheduled due to operational issues" then they put me on stand by for the next flight leaving in a couple hours. I boarded that flight only to be pulled out of my seat the last second before the gate closed saying there was an error and there were two "Fishers" and I was in one of thier seats. After closing the door and departing the gate the agent said "whoops" I guess it was a small child that was to be on the parents lap. "Sorry" as the plane left with an empty seat that I had been sitting in. After a long conversations with the supervisor they finally were able to book me on the last flight out that night arriving in DM at 12:15 in am. I had to dig my original boarding pass out of the garbage as they had refused to put me in first class... an upgrade I had paid for. After being lied to repeatedly about status of plane and bumped from flight due to incompetent gate agent I was able to finally procure a $10 food voucher (a beer is $11 at the airport. There are additional bungles including lost luggage and more to this saga but I think you get the picture."

Pros: "On time"

Pros: "Fast boarding, pleasant crew, nice leg room!"

Pros: "Great ticket counter staff!"
Cons: "Overbooking a flight by this much is obscene. When an aircraft goes down, everyone loses."

Cons: "Flights were all delayed or cancelled"

Cons: "Left about 15 minutes late. But we didn't miss any connections so everything turned out okay."

Pros: "That trip was great to Housto!"

Pros: "Great wheelchair service for my disability."

Pros: "Nowadays the gate closes 10 minutes before takeoff which really helps get the plane off on time as we can make connections. Some may not know this and find it frustrating. As a regular traveler I appreciate the move."

Cons: "The plane was delayed."

Pros: "the fight left on time and had no issues."
Cons: "The size of the seats. The space between the seats. Would it kill United airlines to give up one row of seats and give people a little more leg room."

Pros: "We boarded and landed on time. We had a very friendly crew and a steward asked if I needed help putting things into the overhead bin."
Cons: "I wish the seats were more padded with a little more room side to side."

Cons: "Waited too long for bags at baggage claim."

Cons: "All was good. Nice easy trip!"

Cons: "Free non-alcoholic beverages at least."

Pros: "Yes, the crew was friendly & helpful. The pilot kept us updated throughout the flight."
Cons: "There was no explanation as to why our flight was delayed 2 hours. No plane was in sight for us to board for those 2 hours."

Cons: "Very late"

Pros: "Solid feel to the plane- great on takeoff and landing"
Cons: "Hard seat"

Pros: "Wasting my time driving a hour to the airport for the frontier manager to refuse to print our boarding tickets. And driving a hour back home. Missing my flight to pheonix. Oh I loved being met at the desk by the rude manager who refused to help us."
Cons: "How rude this manager was and how horrible the service was. We showed up to the counter at 8:01. Flights at 8:45. We could have went through security 10 times and still made our flight. Horrible service. No information. Just rude comments and refusing to help. Will never attempt to fly with them again."

Pros: "3 hours delay"
Cons: "No referment"

Pros: "Straightforward and down to business."
Cons: "Give us all a free beverage, please!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Seats are beyond uncomfortable, sat in someone's gum, crew was rude, food was horrible and beyond tiny and expired, bathrooms were completely trashed, worst flight so far"

Pros: "The price was cheap, but the cost was great."
Cons: "The very 1st words I heard out of the mouth from the very 1st frontier employee I met was "this is going to be a bad day". When they checked my bag they never said thank you, for us flying with frontier. When boarding, the "bad day" employee treated the customers as if they were cattle. Not one stewardess smile the entire flight. And when I asked to stretch after using the facilities only 1 time during the 4 hour flight, I was told (in a very sarcastic voice) "as long as you don't come into our area!" Followed by a faded whisper of "shiiiiiiit". All this, plus a 3 hour delay. What more could you ask for? Next time, I'll pay a little more for the customer service."

Pros: "Second flight in a row that had been delayed"
Cons: "Flight was uncomfortable"

Pros: "The seats were spacious."
Cons: "No snacks and drinks"

Pros: "Arrived early"

Cons: "I canceled this flight as well as another return flight from Frontier within 24 hours and was still charged $99 per flight for cancellations. I will never bother with Frontier again and was warned not to before hand."

Pros: "The direct flight ."
Cons: "Waiting in the same line for bag drop off with people that did not use the Kiosk. The restrictions on times to check in and when the last bags could be dropped off. I prefer to arrive early and go through the process before most people arrive. There should be a bag drop off line separate from the general line. The trays on the plane were too small for me to work. The space between the rows was too restricted to open my lap top."

Pros: "The crew was very pleasant. I was sitting in row 3, which was great! But because the plane wasn’t full, many people who didn’t pay the extra $30 ahead of time to select seats were invited to move forward. Lucky for them, but kind of aggravating to me."
Cons: "I paid $75 extra to bring my pet onboard. I had to push her kennel under the seat, and she never made a peep. But babies are allowed to ride for free with their parents, and scream for most of the trip!"

Pros: "Early departure. Non stop. Early arrival. Ease of travel."

Pros: "Clean interior, direct flight"

Pros: "Price, direct flight, very clean interior"

Pros: "The crew attempted to make the flight better by terribly singing Christmas songs, which only reminded me that I would miss my family Christmas due to late flight."
Cons: "We sat on the tarmac for over an hour. My foot is broken and I was jammed next to window. It was was swollen before we could even take off."

Pros: "The flight went well and the customer service was great."
Cons: "We were 1 hour delayed but luckily I was in no hurry"

Pros: "I feel this airline does an excellent job boarding at the beginning and end of the flight."
Cons: "Bags took a long time to be delivered."

Pros: "Boarding, Flight departed on time, arrived early. These all went very well. Give me a flight the boards smoothly, leaves on time and arrives early all the time and that is the most I could ever hope for while traveling."
Cons: "Food, Entertainment and Comfort are no longer a factor and all airlines stink at these."

Pros: "I'm retired.I'll seriously consider driving. The whole airport/airline industry is in trouble."

Cons: "Very friendly"

Pros: "being on time"
Cons: "had to pay for snacks and pop, etc Free would be nicer."

Pros: "Left on time, arrived early"
Cons: "Long wait for bags"

Cons: "We sat on the tarmac in DSM for an hour!!!"

Cons: "45 dollar for carry on made me feel like I was getting screwed!"

Pros: "Dislike ,"
Cons: "Dirty plane, staff not so compassionate. Crew didn't even clean the plane before the boarding. Flight delayed by 45 minutes."

Cons: "Seats were not comfortable"

Pros: "It was everything I expected from a no frills airline. The plane we were on was newer even in the back of the plane the leg room wasn't bad. I'm 5'9 just for a reference."
Cons: "The only thing that was a problem you can't check in on your ipad. Being on vacation I didn't have a laptop with me or easy access to one. If I didn't check in before getting to the airport I didn't want to pay any extra for my bags than I needed to."

Pros: "It was a direct flight to Phoenix from Des Moines and a good price."
Cons: "The boarding area was moved. No one was at the new gate to tell us we were at the right place. The monitor was not updated also so we would know we were at the right gate. I did not realize that not even a free beverage was provided on this over 3 hour flight. Everything had an extra charge."

Pros: "direct flight"
Cons: "All the EXTRA fees. Will likely fly other airlines moving forward. SUPER NARROW SEATS! No wifi."

Pros: "I loved all the room I had, and how polite and expedient the crew were. There was no wasted time."
Cons: "I was sat next to a newborn baby -- and I paid extra for that seat. Felt like that wasn't worth it."

Cons: "Sitting on tarmac for hour and a half with no time of getting off rhe plane os inhumane treatment."

Cons: "Seats dont move...why do first 3 rows have seats that recline?"

Cons: "Took over 30 minutes to check a bag."

Pros: "Visiting with them"
Cons: "Waiting 3 hours"

Cons: "Same as above"

Pros: "There's was nothing good about this flight"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "The flight itself went smoothly."
Cons: "The gate for the flight changed 3x. Flight/airport staff were overly stressed and their frustration was evident while communicating with customers. Staff did a poor job of communicating gate changes. Flight was delayed by over an hour."

Pros: "The flight in general was OK."
Cons: "There was a delay in the flight, but there was no one at the gate to tell passengers what was going on.."
