Modern plane

You have to pay to choose a seat. You have to pay for carry-ons, regardless of size They only serve water, charge extra for a soft drink The seats are uncomfortable and very close together. You don't get an option to pay a lower price for carry-ons at time of purchase when booked through Kayak

It got me from point a to point b. That was the only positive thing about this flight.

Unidentified delays had me sitting in the airport for hours, seats were overwhelmingly uncomfortable, no in flight entertainment, the cabin crew kept the galley lights on so it was impossible to sleep on a late night trip, nickel and dimed over everything from a carry on bag to choosing my seat, no complimentary drinks or snacks, took forever to receive my checked bag

The food was pretty good.

They had no accommodations for our baby, and didn’t let us board first. It was an old plane with basic entertainment, TVs above the middle row and not all do them worked. It was particularly freezing on board. Some of the crew was nice but overall not very friendly or welcoming.

Nothing good to say about AA

AA screwed up reservations by rescheduling flights by 3 hours earlier (done not once but two times) causing 6 hour layover. This plus an additional 2:38 delay on next flight made the journey horrible. Will never book an AA/BA flight again for intrnational travel.

The United flight had a great entertainment package (movies, tv shows, etc). The flight attendant who sat in front of us was awesome,and fun to talk to. She gave us some great tips about things to do while in Athens. The food was good (for airline food).

The flight from Newark to Athens was interesting. The flight changed gates at the last minute. The plane was towed to the new gate, then we found out that it was going to be delayed an additional hour due to required maintenance checks. Actually, I don't mind the additional maintenance checks, I want to arrive alive! We arrived in Athens 90 minutes after our expected time. We got seats in the exit row, however, we couldn't really enjoy the extra legroom for 2 reasons: 1) The exit hatch was right in front of my girlfriend who was sitting near the window. She couldn't extend her feet without kicking the door (I big no-no at 35,000 feet). 2) Our row was right in front of the bathrooms, so I had constant traffic bumping me in left shoulder and lines of people literally standing in front of me for the majority of the flight while waiting for their turn to use the bathroom. They are stepping on my feet constantly or passing gas in my face (I wish I was kidding).

Stewardess berated a man for leaving his backpack on the floor in front of him rather than politely addressing the issue. She told him you know better than that and don’t ever do that again. It was totally uncalled for.

I was charged to carry on my two bags. With added fees and taxes, it came to $168.20! The seats were very uncomfortable...not enough padding and way too crowded. They even charge for in flight snacks. Not a meal...the peanuts and soda you usually get free elsewhere. The flight attendant was rude to me. No wifi available for purchase that I could tell. Then at the end of the flight they had a big commercial-like announcement to push their credit card. It was very tacky.

This flight was canceled at the last minute and all passengers were told they needed to find another flight because the airline didn’t have any to rebook them on. Passengers had to pay out of pocket for new flights. Frontier said they would reimburse but I haven’t seen anything yet.

Ease of boarding and good communication from pilot

Flight attendant was gruff when communicating. She seemed angry when providing information. It was a short flight, so not a lot was offered, which was totally fine. However, when she walked down the isle with water, she appeared to be looking at the ceiling and didn’t stop to check if many people wanted water, including me.

I hated that there were sudden updates of delays just moments before we were supposed to board, then delayed for a day, then cancelled. I was fortunate to be re-routed to San Francisco (I am on the way) now, through United airlines. All in all, it was a stressful inconvenience.
