Cons: "Having the next seat jammed into my knees made the Wifi and outlet not as enjoyable"
Pros: "The flight itself was great."
Cons: "Checking in was a nightmare. First time of Alaska. Can't check baby items for free like on other airlines. KTN was not entered on tickets so didn't have the pre-check I paid for. Agent asked for ID then after those were put away asked for passports so had to dig back through bag. Had to lift suitcase on scale 2 times to get to 50 pounds, then 3rd time agent finally said we could just put the items we removed on the scale instead. Attitude from agent at check-in and at the gate were miserable and snotty! Will NOT fly again!"
Pros: "I like communication. Everyone from gate agents to pilots to flight attendants were good with communication"
Cons: "Walking in rain to the steep ramp into terminal. A very nice gentleman saw I was struggling with my carryon and cane and kindly pulled my bag to the top for me."
Pros: "Nothing. No attempt by Alaska to help much with my situation. I had to spend the night in a chair or on the floor of the arrival area. I will spend 24 hours waiting for the next flight. I had to wait until the following morning to get my luggage. I have a headache. I asked Alaska for a room to catch some sleep and they said "call customer service". My phone battery was out because my charger was in my checked bag."
Cons: "Nobody was there to help me. I had to search for the luggage room of Avinca. Airline."
Pros: "It was just an awesome trip. Everything and everyone was great"
Cons: "Seats was a little hard"
Pros: "I beats driving! Was easy and fast flight."
Cons: "Seats are made too narrow and don't lean back."

Cons: "Nothing to complain about."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Only had choice between water and orange juice and no food."
Pros: "Flights were getting delayed out of Spokane due to all the snow, and Alaska adapted and moved our entire flight onto an earlier flight, making my evening much better than it could have been when the flight was later cancelled due to worsening conditions."
Pros: "like the ability to watch movies keeps your mind busy."
Cons: "plane stunk like pee"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Delay taking off but prefer to err on the side of safety. It wasn't anything the crew had control of"
Pros: "There was a half hour mechanical delay, and then an atc delay of an hour that caused us to miss our connecting flight. We were rebooked for the soonest flight the next morning and told that a hotel would be provided free of charge. Upon arriving in Seattle, that was not the case. The best we were offered was food vouchers, which normally might not have bothered me as much, except that I am pregnant. Sleeping on airport benches at 6 months pregnant is ridiculous!"
Pros: "my original flight got canceled due to weather. I had heard horror stories about having to reschedule flights, but that was no my experience! In a short 5 minute phone call I was on the next safe flight out only 2 hours behind my regular schedule and they were really nice during the whole conversation!"
Pros: "I loved the free chat and free entertainment! It made such a long flight go so much better and goodbyes and travel easier knowing that I could communicate on the go! For someone with social anxiety, being able to talk to loved ones when I was going through things was the best experience ever! Thank you so much!"
Pros: "How kind the staff was"
Cons: "How disorganized the whole process of rebooking our flights was. I ended up having to switch long lines and they booked me on ab 8pm GEG to SEA, 12:45pm SEA to ORD, 10:50am ORD to MSP. This is crazy. I ended up just booking myself on another flight on another airline. Why couldn't they offer alternative airlines to me in the first place?"
Pros: "Nothing stood out as better than average."
Cons: "The whole day was a disaster and it felt like the entire Alaska airlines was in a shambles. The first flight was delayed because they couldn't find a crew to get there in time. Once crew did show up, there was no sense of urgency and ground ops even seemed lethargic. Missed my connecting flight. Rebooked on a later flight which was then subsequently delayed another hour. The whole trip took twice as long as it should have."
Pros: "Boarding process, simple and easy. Great attendants."
Cons: "The movies I rented on gogo were finicky, meaning it skipped a few seconds every once in a while, and when I rewinded it still skipped the same parts. Made the movie more difficult to understand."
Pros: "Friendly helpful staff. Always smiled and we're welcoming"
Cons: "Air vents don't blow hard enough to aisle seats. Barely felt a whisper of air. No screens in headrests with TV or screens. Don't want to pay for wifi to use my phone the whole flight"

Cons: "The seats are too small"
Pros: "The seats were comfortable and roomy. The flight attendants were very kind. I will recommend Alaskan to my friends"
Pros: "The staff were good dealing with a wheelchair. We had rough air, so the cabin crew could not offer food or beverage. The flight is very short anyway, so it is no big deal that there was no food or entertainment t"
Cons: "It would be nice if the seats were more comfortable, again though, it's a short flight so it is fine"
Cons: "Wifi didn't work. Very dissappointing."
Pros: "It was a quick flight."

Cons: "Very turbulant. But that is to be expected."
Pros: "On time flight and quick luggage drop off and retrieval, courteous and helpful,staff, drink choice good, cookie choice limited."
Cons: "Nothing really."
Pros: "Friendly and calm professionals in the "assistance" line. The ticket kiosk did not recognize my confirmation number or name so I was instructed to wait in the assistance line and I was furious- swore I'd never fly with Alaska again- but then the ticket agent was fantastic, calm and helpful and helped put me in a better mood. Overall flight was great. Felt safe, hardly any turbulence and friendly flight staff. Flight was on time. No delays."
Cons: "No screens on the back of seats with free entertainment. I don't like paying extra for entertainment. I wish you had good vegan food options."
Pros: "Flight crew was so good. Everyone was friendly and helpful and in a good mood"
Pros: "No waiting"

Pros: "Exceptional assistance with our luggage at the Spokane airport"

Pros: "comfortable seats and service"
Cons: "bought a sandwich and it wasn't too great"
Pros: "Alaska Airlines had a very comfortable flight with great attendants and power to charge all your devices."
Cons: "The wifi service was really poor. I paid 49.99 for Gogo and I got the service of less than a 56.k modem."
Pros: "The front cabin stewardess smiled s lot, you don't always see that. We actually got a snack! Some hour flights don't do that... Keep it up, it's just a nice industry standard to maintain. Good communication regarding expectations/limitations of plane/process."
Cons: "I rated seats low just because they are always hard and about 45 minutes sitting is all I can take in them. while there was an Alaska Air magazine, there was nothing else to read or watch. Could do without the five minute sales pitch for a credit card (?) during decent... I tuned her out after " we like to offer.... " So not really sure what her pitch was it was just extra noise and when I finished reading my article I noticed she was STILL talking! Poor girl... Don't make her do that!"
Pros: "Received great help at ticket counter, gate crew and flight attendants were friendly."
Cons: "Late departure, no beverage service - water only."
Pros: "The crew was good, and the airline tried to make our wait in the airport as comfortable as possible."

Cons: "The bathrooms were very dirty and there was not enough food and drink supplies."
Pros: "On a quick 40 minute flight they still managed to serve coffee, water and snacks."

Cons: "Better flight scheduling."
Cons: "The flight was delayed over two hours"
Pros: "the young man who was our flight attendant was just terrible. He could care less about his job. Name I think was Nathan."
Pros: "Good crew, kind and hard working staff. It is so nice to have inflight messaging and that was a pleasant surprise that made the flight go quickly."
Cons: "I found the delta app to be less user friendly than the United one. I wish the in flight entertainment were in the Delta app versus downloading yet another app."
Cons: "After my flight was delayed for over 3 hrs - the counter clerk was rude and unhelpful. She felt it was appropriate for her to flick the customer service phone number in front of my teenage daughters. I would say avoid Delta!"
Pros: "The crew was great."
Pros: "Information communicated about delays."
Cons: "- more communication (any!) about bag status when landed - flight delay due to too many/too heavy baggage. Long delay was said to be due to making sure our baggage would accompany destination. Upon arrival, bag was left in NYC but this wasn't communicated. No info on bag status at airport or via ema"
Cons: "First class seats were too close together. It was very difficult to get out of you seat into the aisle. Food was not what it should have been for 1st class There was no wall between 1st class and coach giving little privacy when I worked my laptop. it was in direct view of the middle seat in coach"
Pros: "Quick boarding and great with accommodating my request for a window seat."
Cons: "Offer in flight entertainment."
Cons: "It took longer to get from nyc to dc that it did Venice to NYC. Horrible....got home at 2am"

Pros: "The crew was dealing with NOVA/DC residents"
Pros: "Coming from Europe Alitalia and Delta did an EXCELLENT job at assisting the passengers get rid of their luggage just as soon as we were done going through customs... I don't usually fly on this route, but I thought it was perfect. Transfer between Delta terminal was a breeze too..."
Cons: "I usually don't fly from JFK. The food court was expensive (18 dollars base price from a burger seems a high even for an airport. I don't fly from NY normally - so maybe I need to tune my expectation for the locale, and it may have NOTHING to do with the airline company."
Cons: "Flighted delayed due to mechanical issues. Missed connecting 400pm flight. Next flight was 10:25 pm."
Pros: "I was trying with a broken arm - the Crew both on the plane and off the plane was wonderful"
Cons: "Would like more food available-not for purchase but with what comes with your flight"
Pros: "The service is very good from the beginning. The flight attendant is very caring thanks so much."
Cons: "The aircraft is too old, MD-88. I don't know how Delta is flying that type of aircraft. Is very risky"
Pros: "Another safe flight. Crew was very attentive."
Pros: "Flew delta comfort, priority boarding, extra legroom, short flight so no meal included"
Cons: "nothing bad about this flight"
Cons: "Flight cancelled due to weather that was never bad but on the potential of bad weather. Had to scramble so my 18 year old son was not stranded overnight in a strange place and Delta does not help. Only rebooked a flight itinerary for the next day for a 4 hour flight with connections on a 1 hour direct flight. Spent an hour on line to figure out what to do. #neverdelta"
Cons: "Plane delayed 4 times for a total of 4 hours"
Pros: "crew kept a great attitude throughout"

Cons: "Seat wouldn't redline."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "The delay"

Cons: "Old plane, bad food & old crew"
Pros: "The staff is very friendly. Most pleasant airline I've flown with."
Pros: "The seats"
Cons: "We purchased tickets together and our seats were not together when we checked in. We had one small roller bag for the two of us and we ended up having to gate check it along with 3 other people and then there was clearly enough room for it once we were boarded."
Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "It was crowded and cramped."
Pros: "The crew was friendly, relaxed, made everything seem like a breeze"
Pros: "Able to download boarding pass into apple wallet"
Cons: "Flight was almost an hour late departing, bag is a carry on but storage too small to keep bag, then wifi didn't work the entire flight. Had to run to our connection since our layover time was taken up in Boise. If we had missed the flight, we would have been re-routed to another airport over 1 1/2 hrs away since ours closes. Next flight was not much better, oh and wifi did I t work on it also - last 3-4 delta flights I've taken have been late and didn't have working wifi - starting to think their system doesn't work at all - seriously going to take any other carrier but Delta going forward"
Pros: "I could be wrong, but the seats were very comfortable (for a plane) and I felt my knees weren't as close to the seat in front of me than other airlines. So that's a plus."
Pros: "Comfortable flight, ample leg room, and the chairs were pretty plush. Comfort+ is pretty nice"
Cons: "On my first flight they forgot to turn the wifi on. I have unlim data but obviously can't use while in air; no big though."
Pros: "flight attendants were great."
Cons: "not enough leg room and space. The business class should be at the minimum for economy."
Cons: "Flight delayed"
Pros: "on time. great flight attendnant"
Pros: "The crew was polite and friendly"
Cons: "My second plane had sooo much moisture coming from the cooling system it looked like the passengers were getting gased and I kept getting wet from water condensation falling on me in a window seat as I tried to sleep from having such an early flight to begin with only to be told it's delayed 3 hrs without explanation."
Pros: "Good seats."
Pros: "Free drinks in Comfort+"
Pros: "At least there was a free shuttle to the discounted rate hotel."
Cons: "There was not enough time to run to the connecting flight. Was told they could not wait, yet then the plane sat on the runway for 25+ min. Had to get a hotel and rebook the flight. Very poor experience flying Delta."
Cons: "See above description"
Cons: "The flight from Las Vegas was delayed for a very long time, and then diverted to Huntsville, Alabama, because of weather in Atlanta. I understand that was beyond Delta's control, except for the fact that its Atlanta hub is grossly overused. But my connecting flight in Atlanta was canceled, and its "dedicated" phone line to re-book the flight was completely unresponsive. The employees in Atlanta were, as they usually are, surly, and myself and fellow passengers had to wait on line for hours in the wee hours of the morning to be re-booked. Oh, and Delta lost my suitcase in Las Vegas, with all my clothes and a business file, and it has not been located."
Cons: "Delayed 3 hrs missed connecting flight waited 3 hrs for next one"

Pros: "Great crew!"
Cons: "We paid for WiFi but it was not working on this flight."
Pros: "Arrived alive, didn’t sleep in the Charlotte airport like last flight. didn’t lose a bag....didn’t check one, learned that lesson before"
Cons: "WiFi did’t work. Boarding the end of the terminal/gate was a mess. Crew was late, so flight was late. Packed in like sardines....normal American Airlines."
Cons: "Prior to boarding, a gate attendant talked to the passengers in a VERY condescending way with regard to their carry on luggage. The original plane had mechanical problems, identified after half the passengers had already boarded. It was stressful enough without this person raising her voice and talking to us as though we were children."
Cons: "Leg room was too small, food was awful, no taste. Bathroom smelled even from take off."
Cons: "Paid for First Class so I could sleep on this red-eye. Wasted my money. Seat was uncomfortable, legroom in my bulkhead seat was horrible. I can sleep anywhere...make that ALMOST anywhere, now."
Cons: "Boarding process including changing terminals, going thru security is awful. This time I had ample of time to go Thru that long waiting process but last time I almost missed the flight. Heard from others the same issue. London Heathrow airport needs to come up with better solution before losing the"
Pros: "The plane was a good size for that length of trip. Free entertainment options were excellent."

Cons: "There’s always room for improvement. Too much to list here"
Pros: "many movies"
Cons: "The flight delayed several times, and the gate was changed. The plane is very old and no service at all (not even water during the 2 hours flight)!"
Pros: "Everything except the food."
Cons: "A four hour flight departing at 5pm SHOULD HAVE SOME EATABLE FOOD!!!! I am sick to death of going hungry on these flights because there is nothing I can eat on board."
Cons: "Rude and disrespectful"
Cons: "I paid $10 for the WiFi service and it wouldn’t connect at all. I had a short flight so i never got to send my emails off. American Airlines should refund me my $10."
Cons: "in the airport, the gate area dirty!, bathrooms dirty, no place to charge phone. The walk to the airplane, getting aboard the plane after the gate and flight changed and delayed. Being told it was weather related on the plane and being told it was MAINTENANCE by customer service. The plane was very crowded, the flight attendants never smiled. WHen i told the attendant i was being "rained" on he said...i know its happening everywhere..... he said there was nothing he could do but get me paper towels...they never came. I was very annoyed getting off the plane walking back and forth....it was aweful. and my flight before this was no better i am VERY TURNED OFF BY AMERICAN AIRLINES RIGHT NOW."
Pros: "The crew were polite, accommodating and understanding"
Cons: "The gate was changed 1hr prior to boarding despite the arriving plane having landed 3hrs prior. So with stroller and infant in toe, I had to run to change terminals/buildings. There was no assistance or prior warning regarding this from the check in staff and I made it all the way to the original terminal and gate before having to turn around. The desk staff at the gate was asked about early boarding for infants and said it would be okay but didn’t give clear instructions on boarding so I sat down and they began boarding each group 20 minutes later and did not give priority to mother’s with infants. The stroller which I brought to the gate was then tagged incorrectly with a white tag instead of a pink tag. I was later told by he crew that it meant it would go directly to baggage claim instead of being brought to the door. According to the crew, all staff know to tag with a pink tag. At every step there was blatant display of inconsideration that made an already difficulty journey, that much more challenging."
Pros: "Left and arrived more or less on time. No major issues."
Cons: "Gates are way too far apart in Miami and the golf carts to get between areas seem to require reservations and long waits. Ridiculous. Most MIA staff was very rude (this wasn't American's own staff, or TSA, I should note). American stripped my group of our seat assignments (which we had selected 6 months prior) without reason and with minimal apology. No solution offered. Got middle seats but luckily was able to switch on one of the computer kiosks. Flight crew didn't seem to care that other people moved to the for-pay seats further up front (the flight wasn't full)... so why did we lose our seat assignments and get grief with not being able to select anything good? Not impressed."
Pros: "Quick, efficient"
Pros: "The fact we arrived safely"
Cons: "Long time to claim baggage, three hours delay, uncomfortable seats"
Cons: "They misplaced my luggage and it did not arrive in Boston"
Pros: "I liked arriving safely, although we were an hour and a half late"
Cons: "American switched pilots last minute, so all passengers sat waiting in our cramped seats for about 15 minutes while pilots got situated in the cockpit. Then it was discovered a preflight mechanical check hadn't been done. So we all sat for another HOUR waiting for the mechanics to arrive and do their work. The flight attendants were unpleasant and rude."
Pros: "Immigration in Dallas was amazing, so quick and no fuss."
Cons: "If you are running late you might struggle to get from terminal to terminal"
Pros: "I appreciated the interactive screen on the backseat, which provided me entertainment watching Doctor Who and playing Angry Birds. I also liked that the power outlet to charge my phone was more accessible on the backseat instead of below my seat, which is normally where I find it."
Cons: "I did not appreciate that there was a device mounted below 2 of the 3 backseats in my row. Those devices cut into at least a few inches of valuable room to store a carry-on bag. At worst, I've seen 1 seat have such a device, so it was quite disappointing to see 2 seats with them, including mine."
Cons: "Although I should now be at my final destination, I still have 11 hrs of travel to go. My flights were changed three times. The first cancelation caused me to buy new tickets at a higher price I had originally purchased them at. We were redirected from Kayak to Vayamo and they have no sense of customer service. Horrible"
Cons: "Rude crew, no bathroom useage for entire flight and staff would not help handicap with luggage."
Pros: "The spaciousness of the seating on AA is tops bar none"
Cons: "The cookies and it was cold. Jesse"
Pros: "I think they were holding the plane for a connection flight arrival."
Pros: "Boarding was simple"

Cons: "American airlines was helpful to embark my daughter who lost her conection from Miami to NYC"
Pros: "Ordinary flight, not too chaotic for holiday weekend."
Cons: "My luggage was lost! Had to wait an entire day to recuperate my suitcases."
Pros: "Older aircraft, seat cushion was on its last legs regarding comfort as I sunk to the frame of the seat. No onboard entertainment on the headrest as compared with our outgoing flight."
Cons: "The seat discomfort and the lack of entertainment."
Cons: "Significantly late & rude, as usual."
Pros: "Clean, friendly staff, great baggage tracking. Smooth flight."
Cons: "Overcrowded, but that's the same no matter where. Usual rude frequent fliers, who also usually take up all the overhead space."
Pros: "Getting off of that plane."
Cons: "I understand delays happen and are sometimes out of your control. However, customer service is something that you can, should, and must control. I witnessed a lack of self control of the American employees (including a Supervisor) and every point of my trip w/your customers. I was embarrassed for the American executive team."
Pros: "Much more legroom on this flight, even though it was a smaller aircraft."
Cons: "Gate agent seemed a bit overwhelmed. Helpful, but not overly friendly. In stark contrast to my earlier flight from Charlotte to Memphis, where the gentleman was extremely pleasant and cheerful."
Cons: "There was no one at the gate to keep us updated about the flight delay"
Pros: "Staff werected all very helpful and and pleasant. Pilot navigated a smooth line."
Cons: "Nothing stands out"

Pros: "once I made it on it was smooth"
Cons: "plane in cos had to refuel so we were 20 late leaving and I bearly made it to next flight in dallas they were closing doors, young people ran but im old so could not move as fast, it was a challenge to not miss flight"
Pros: "not beat up"
Cons: "people trying to get extra carry on on"
Cons: "Wait 4 hours for a delay flight"
Cons: "Broken headrest, no services, very loud older plane"
Cons: "The bathroom on the flight from Denver to Santa Barbara was the WORST EVER! I doubt it has ever been cleaned and the poor people that had seats near or at the rear of the plane should have been refunded their money having been subjected to the smell of an “indoor outhouse!” Shameful!!"
Cons: "Everything was excellent. I got upgraded to first class, the flight arrived early and I was on the left side of the aircraft so I had an excellent view of DC as we came in for a landing."
Pros: "Service was nice & early."
Pros: "I found the reason for being late to be questionable They said heavy snow but as i flew in i looked out the window and saw all roads nicely cleared That does not happen in 3 hours"
Cons: "They did not get my liggage to the connecting flight And here i am in Ukraine with no winter clothes at 7 below 3 days later"
Cons: "Delayed because of mechanical problems and did not announce gate changes."
Cons: "That a bunch of travelers including myself missed our connecting flight in Chicago after united chamged our arrival gate but didn't have any crew to man the jet way. We sat for 20 mins right in front of our gate. From 1 pm to 10 on my flight to Asheville from Chicago was delayed many many times waiting for our airplane to arrive. Upsetting that we missed our connection due to United's poor planning, they didn't hold our connecting flight for us but we had to wait all night for other flights."
Pros: "Very smooth and easy. Thank you"
Cons: "Departure was delayed for five hours. Gate changes 4 different times to opposite sides of the terminal. Weren't told honest reason of the delay until two hours in. They boarded half of the plane and stopped when the pilots radioed in that there was a severe hydraulic fluid leak. Updates were supposed to happen every thirty minutes but more than three times they were longer than thirty minute intervals and at one point more than ninety minutes without an update. The representatives at the Chicago gate told us we were all set then the rest of the passengers boarded the plane. The pilot said they were waiting on maintenance paperwork to print off but then we waited an extra hour at the gate on board while we could still hear very loud tests of the hydraulic system. Once we finally left the gate and headed out on the runway for takeoff we stopped just before takeoff and the pilot said we were waiting on PAPERWORK AGAIN! This was another 30 minute delay and we finally took off. We were supposed to arrive home at 10:00pm and instead arrived at 3:00am..."
Cons: "Very late departing Boise. No crew to fly plane. Our plane sat at the gate with no crew to fly it."
Cons: "After three on-time flights from the other side of the world, I was stuck in Chicago for a 3 hour delay. The flight finally arrived at Reagan 2 minutes after the runway closed so we were rerouted to a different airport where we finally landed 4 hours late."
Pros: "Uncrowded flight so there were lots of extra seats!"
Cons: "No food or snacks provided for free."
Pros: "The leg room on this flight was spacious. The crew was friendly and attentive."
Cons: "Not a fan of the snacks that were served."
Pros: "Same....very possible experience"

Cons: "The entire experience. I have no intention of flying United again and will not recommend to other travelers."
Pros: "Short flight, direct"
Cons: "Wifi misleading, sounds like free but not."
Cons: "The only thing that was not good was the wifi-- we used it on our first flight from LAX to Chicago, but from Chicago to DCA we were unable to connect."

Pros: "Boarded and left on time, arrived early."
Cons: "On board media could be upgraded."
Pros: "not much"
Cons: "United was happy to charge me $75 to switch me to an earlier flight, then that flight was an hour and a half late because they were missing a flight attendant. So they basically defrauded me out of $75."
Cons: "It was delayed so I had to take another flight. I've been trying to get this flight refunded"
Pros: "prompt emails and text messages with the back up plan"
Cons: "Missed connecting flight because flight delayed takeoff from home due to SFO problems. Sat on tarmac for an hour or more, finally took off but missed connecting flight mid afternoon and no other acceptable flights until 11 pm getting into Fort Lauderdale at 730 am. (originally was supposed to be getting to Fort Lauderdale at 10 pm). Also, the aisle seats on the plane had a narrower underseat space that my little boxy carryon wouldn't fit into--and it usually fits under any underseat storage...Luckily the passenger in the middle was willing to swap places."
Pros: "The staff for united were super helpful and accommodating. Made traveling with my pet super easy."
Cons: "Nothing. Everyone was acceptional!"
Cons: "Worst ever Can you credit my credit card for a full refund"
Pros: "Boarding and.crew awesome. Crew helpful, friendly, and efficient."
Cons: "Didn't like to have a fee for my bag. Have to pay for wifi"
Pros: "Flight to Austin was just fine."
Cons: "My flight back to bosie from San Francisco they changed the gate I didn't hear the change and missed my flight. I didn't get back to bosie until the next day."
Cons: "United are the most rudest phone people on the phone to deal with and if it's there fault they never want to comp u last time I fly with united"
Pros: "Crew was very attentive."
Cons: "Was delayed almost half an hour."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "That u load the plane assistance backard,loading goes much faster if you start @the back of the plane,& myself I carry only a shoulder bag only ,all the time. U put me @ the back of the plane 90% of the time which means I have to wait for the people that are moving their whole house,making me miss my schedule, I have to spend night @ airport for next schedule."
Cons: "no inflight entertainment."
Cons: "Prices to watch Tv"
Pros: "I arrived on time."
Cons: "Flight was ok. I was disturbed by the rudeness of flight attendant toward a service dog. This dog was the owners eyes and she seemed disgusted it was there. We had to let her know in front of other passengers so she would be put on the spot and change her attitude."
Pros: "Flight crew was very friendly and helpful. Very unusual for a US airline. Thank you!"
Cons: "Not enough time between transit. Barely made the connecting flight. Boarding pass did not list which terminal I needed to go so when you hop in the train at O'hare, you are not exactly sure. O'hare is not well-organized. The 1 stop immigration/custom check actually was very slow. The regular check was very chaotic, with officers yelling info everywhere. Felt like I was in the market."
Pros: "Luckily the crew on this flight was friendly and courteous, unlike United flights I had 2 months ago, because everything else was pretty horrible."
Cons: "First, we were delayed over 2 hours for maintenance problems. Second the plane was cramped and the seats were hard as park benches. Third, this flight had zero entertainment options although they advertised for it in the seat back propaganda. Fourth, the cabin noise from the engines, once they got them started, was so loud that even my noise canceling headphones could not prevent me from getting a headache. At least we got there safely, eventually."
Pros: "On time Smooth ride Actually slept"
Pros: "Not only do I get the best price. The fact that you told me what carousel to get my bag from was new to me. I alway check kyak first but now I love u guys. I know my travel site and its kayak"
Pros: "Not a single thing!"
Cons: "I almost missed my flight, because at check in they were only helping Premier passengers. Forced to wait for 45 minutes. All I wanted to do was check a bag! When I finally got to the counter, the customer service agent was extremely rude, slow and frustrated. I had to run from check in to security and only made it to the plane with seconds to go."
Pros: "Free entertainment on mobile devices"
Cons: "TSA pre check did not register from website, had to use standard security line. No boarding or seating preference for military."
Pros: "My flight to O'hare from Reagan international was fine but my returning trip was just terrible. After spending extra hours waiting due to a delay, we were about 30 min from DCA and our flight was redirected to N.C where we spend an extra 2 hrs waiting for the plane to re fuel and the reason the airline's flew us to N.C is supposedly due to weather in D.C but i was told by locals that its hardly rained. I had spent 11hrs total in airports yesterday. I could have taken that trip via car in 12hrs and saved myself $300 bucks or more. I am beyond unsatisfied with how my travel experience was. From rude united employees to a bad flying experience i will not use united anymore and frankly, me and all the other passengers on that flight should be compensated somehow for that experience. The only easy thing about this trip was purchasing my tickets through kayak and how well there service is. Thank you"
Cons: "Seat was in the middle of the isle, flight attendant kept bumping into me. The guy sitting next to me didn't fit in his seat so he took up most of the room. Very unpleasant experience, especially after spending money to upgrade to more comfort."
Pros: "Newer plane so seats were cushioned better, crew was attentive. Great landing on icy runway."
Pros: "The service was pretty good on time and clean i liked the whole trip!!!"
Pros: "left on time, the wireless service on the plane is a great idea."
Cons: "they should serve free snacks"
Pros: "The seats were very comfortable and staff was friendly."
Cons: "We were delayed an hour due to high winds in San Fransisco. That wasn't there fault but the electronic boards weren't changed"
Pros: "Ground crew at gate were helpful."
Cons: "Flight delayed, gate changed, etc."
Cons: "Always ceases to amaze me how a screening process is so organized at every other airport except Cleveland Hopkins!!!"
Pros: "Flight attendant in the back was great. Plane side baggage woman in DC was also great."
Cons: "2+ hrs delayed due to mechanical issue on flight from Chicago to DC No snacks"
Pros: "Everything went very well . We flew down on United and back on Southwest . Both flights were full and everyone was quiet and polite . Thank God !"
Pros: "Great crew, tiny seats. Way overpriced"
Cons: "Besides the flight itself being delayed for hours, after we boarded we were kept inside the plane for over 2 hours waiting for the pilots to arrive."
Pros: "The flight was on-time."
Cons: "The seat, again, was the bad news."
Pros: "Fine for what I expected"
Cons: "Fine for what I expected"
Pros: "The helpful counter agent."
Cons: "All ok."
Pros: "Flights were on time! Flight attendants were really pleasant and both flights were really smooth despite some turbulence at times!"
Pros: "efficient boarding good information from pilot"
Cons: "arrival 45 minutes late"
Pros: "Time management"
Pros: "I have gotten used to the added costs for baggage. At least they didn't charge me for a seat assignment this time. The crew were nice and the flight went well."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly for the most part. Any chance you will get on flight wifi soon?"
Cons: "Lost bags"
Pros: "Getting off the plane was the best part"
Cons: "Babies crying kicking my seat screaming in my ear"
Cons: "Same screaming infants. They were able to sleep but allowed to roam aisles."
Cons: "Plane was dirty, flight delayed, lost my bag, awful."
Pros: "On time, smooth landing, polite flight attendants"
Cons: "Seats, tray tables, pay for carry on"
Pros: "Despite DIA being closed the day before, we were only 35min late for departure, flight was without event and a timely arrival at DC. It may have been cheap, but you got what you paid for..."
Cons: "Bloody small seating, no refreshments."
Cons: "the crew was incredibly rude (to others and myself) the flight was delayed three hours and we weren't notified until we were supposed to board"
Pros: "It was fine--took off, polite crew, and landed safely. Can't complain about that."
Cons: "Our plane was delayed for over an hour. Picking up a bag from Frontier takes forever because you have to check what would otherwise be a carry-on. I wasn't aware of this as it was my first time flying with Frontier. Knowing that, I'd be able to schedule better. Don't love that they don't really give any refreshments or snacks."
Cons: "There was a 4 hour delay that a notice went out 2 hours before boarding- which is too late because everybody was already there. And the email still encouraged us to come to the airport just in case. Which meant sitting around an airport 5 hours. Also, there are no trays on the back of your seat. There is a small metal bar that pulls down but it is too narrow for a computer, tablet, book or even to sit a cup of coffee on- which by the way- costs $1.99."
Cons: "There was no mention of a delay while boarding but it took an extra 40 minutes to get started. There were storms in dc and our plane had to be redirected to a different airport. We were not given accurate information or updated with any frequency. We would be told more information is coming in 15 minutes, then sit for an hour and hear nothing. i could not update my driver that was at the original destination airport. While stuck on the plane at the new airport we were told we could not get off the plane or we would not be allowed back on and if we decided to get off and drive we could not get our checked bags. Snacks were not offered for hours and more than one flight attendant said they were out of everything and running out of water. When they finally offered food, full price was still the only option and they had everyone line up in the back of the plane, blocking both lavatories. Half way through the line we were told we could close the doors and prepare to take off and everyone remaining was sent back to their seat. We waited another half hour to actually take off."
Cons: "They nickel and dime you to death. Leg room is horrible if your over 4 feet tall."
Pros: "I just plain like the Frontier method as it has been done for years. The pricing, seating, employees and most everything else just works."
Cons: "I've traveled with Frontier for years and on previous flights to DCA, I thought I should blame the baggage claim delay on the airport. Now I am told it is a Frontier responsibility and I am livid. It gets worse every trip. This time it took an hour to get our bags and it was clearly unnecessary. The first bags came out at about 30 minutes, but after that they dribbled out with no explanation whatsoever. Someone is a real laggard and they need to be fired! This experience was so bad that it takes precedence over our previous beefs. Boarding could be much better from back to front and the new seats are terrible, but like I said, if the baggage could be fixed, I would be willing to concede a few. At this point, I am ready to jump ship to Southwest."
Pros: "Early Arrival"
Cons: "Paying for a seat"
Pros: "Good travel day!"
Cons: "I took the time to fill in my frequent traveler number. I did not receive TSA Precheck boarding passes like I should have."
Pros: "tray tables, great sleep, cool goat, they let me on with 5 minutes to spare. no frills. wow!"
Cons: "not much"
Pros: "The gate crew was upbeat and kept everyone informed. They took a bad situation and made it bearable."
Cons: "Of course, being delayed an hour is not much fun, but other than that, everyone at Frontier did a great job."
Pros: "except for the food and what entertainment it was over all good"
Cons: "could not pay cash"
Cons: "they cancelled the fligh on me - over booked"
Cons: "Having to sit on the plane for four hours in the same position of the seat."
Cons: "They charged me 70 for bags.... Which is insane.... Without warning basically."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Arrived early. Crew pleasant. Hate the add on's but that is Frontier. New seats not comfortable"
Pros: "They chage me $30 for a standard carian( bag)"
Pros: "The crew was extremely friendly and the initial cost of the flight was excellent however the only reason the initial flight cost was cheap is that everything is an add on ... Checked bags cost $35, carry-on bags cost $40! Everything but water costs extra on the plane, and you even have to pay $13 to choose your "normal" seat! I will not fly Frontier again because after I sum the additional costs I can fly a comparable airline with additional services that are free when compared to Frontier."
Cons: "Frontier not only raised their baggage rates, but they failed to load the luggage of at least seven passengers onto a one-way flight."
Pros: "The crew and boarding. Since I paid for a better seat, I was in front of the line."
Cons: "My seat didn't recline even though I paid an extre $50 for a better seat. Seating is very uncomfortable for me if I can't recline my seat slightly. Seats need to be more ergonomically designed for comfort. Also, not music or TV. The old planes use to give you these choices. The new planes suck!!!!!"
Pros: "Crew was nice and had a soft landing. You do get one free personal item wether it be a backpack or suitcase it's just supposed to fit under your seat and i put mine in overhead anyway so im sure it's fine as long as you get on the plane. so not sure what everyone else was rating. if you plan on extra baggage add it online it's much cheaper if you don't get it online add it at your check in kiosk BEFORE you go through security and it will save you 20 bucks."
Pros: "They should offer a tiered check-in scheme for baggage so it should be cheaper for those with small bags that are just checking it in for the convenience of others to not be cramped needlessly with baggage in their leg space."
Pros: "Staff was friendly."
Cons: "Extra 20% cost of my fare just to bring a carry on bag. I already paid $450, this was highway robbery!!! Having to pay $20 to $50 extra just to select a seat. Plane layout now hows even more crowded seats that are thin plastic like you would get on a tour vehicle where you would only sit for 1 hour. Micro-sized fold out trays can't hold an ipad and coffee cup. Plane left 45 minutes late for no reason. No TS-Pre check. I could go on. I will never fly this airline again."
Pros: "It left on time"
Cons: "Pay for snack and drink"
Pros: "Discounted fare"
Cons: "Nickel & dime for everything Called others up in the checkin line, who were late for their flight before us, causing us to be late and miss flight. Do yourself a favor. Pay a little more, and get a better flight."
Cons: "The seats are horrible! It ruins the entire flight! Uuugh."
Pros: "The flight left and landed on time"
Cons: "Issues with check in Paid for check in bag twice Can use electronic ticket Confusion of man at front check in counter with multiple trips to security then back because of ticketing problems changes in departure time with no clarification very soon before the flight error in departure time postings"
Cons: "The seats are extremely thin, very closely positioned, absolutely everything is for a fee, so if you weren't exhausted from sitting, you were exhausted from getting nickel and dimed. I will stay away from any Frontier flights from now on."
Cons: "Once I payed for the overpriced checked luggage fee and the hidden carry one fee and then had to purchase a seat on every leg of my flight, it cost me $166.00 to print my boarding pass. WHAT!!! Biggest scam I of airline moguls I have ever dealt with. Not only will I never fly Frontier again or never recommend Frontier to anyone, I will surely go out of my way to make sure everyone knows what a rip off it is to fly Frontier. I could have flown on a decent airline non-stop with a soda and maybe even a movie for what it cost me to fly frontier."
Pros: "Nothing, it was the worst flight that I ever take."
Cons: "Customer service was a bummer. Charge for carry on? !!!!!! It's like stealing. It's stupid and it's not fair. The seats was so tide, it was like clastrophobia. All in all, bad experience ever."
Cons: "Stupid extra fees hidden. Just come up with one ticket price. Used to be able to do it easily. WTF? Only thing free is water. Seriously? Learn how to run an airline. Terrible, terrible, terrible."
Pros: "Crew were great."
Cons: "Cost of ticket, costs for any and everything including carry on and cost for a seat assignment, any seat assignment including a middle seat. Seats are hard plastic, no support or reclining options, yet cost extra for assignment. Once all ancillary fees are added up, Frontier is not a value to other competitors. The baggage did not arrive at the claim for 45 minutes after debarkation. I'd say that was unusual, except it took over an hour for bags on my flight home. It's apparent that cost cutting is priority, just not realized in value for flyers. A long fall in service/value from its past under current management. I will not be using this carrier again."
Cons: "$60 for a carry-on; seats don't recline; tray is minuscule."
Pros: "Cheap ticket price."
Cons: "Poor in flight experience, extra charges for basics."
Pros: "I love kayak"
