Pros: "The crew was amazing, the seats were medium on the comfort range."
Cons: "More comfortable seats and more leg room!"

Pros: "The food and drinks on this Delta flight was much better than when I flew with them years ago. I was pleasantly surprised. Good entertainment too. Saw two movies I missed in the theaters..."
Cons: "The legroom was decent, but I couldn't get comfortable. Pillow or no pillow, the headrest just felt wrong."

Pros: "Boarding was easy. No issues. Friendly staff. We had to fill out customs declaration forms but didn’t have a pen. We asked stewardess for a pen and they didn’t have any left. She said to borrow from a neighbor which I thought was rude. We don’t know our neighbors. If a flight requires filling out a form, they should provide enough pens to do so."
Cons: "Not enough pens"

Cons: "The overhead didn’t fit my standard and I ask the gate attendant and she assured me or would. Otherwise excellent game"

Pros: "Short and easy"

Pros: "clean plane, crew was very friendly."
Cons: "no dessert in meal"

Cons: "Delayed 3 hours"

Cons: "Food was awful. Didn't get my checked luggage in Manila upon arrival, was traced and left in New York JFK. Don't know who messed up with my luggage if Delta connection or China airlines."

Pros: "Super friendly flight crew."

Pros: "They tried."

Pros: "Everyone was fairly friendly"
Cons: "Cramped foot room"

Pros: "I like the snacks they are not giving out on the flights. It seems that Delta is trying to make the flying experience nicer instead of more tedious and uncomfortable like many other airlines, which is appreciated."
Cons: "The flights were both operated by Delta but booked through WestJet, and the flights themselves were fine. The booking was through WestJet (found the flight on kayak which kicked me over to West Jet's site) and check in was a pain. Their code did not work for their site or Delta's, I had to FB message them both leaving and returning to ask for the correct one, and the first request took them hours to answer. I'll just book Delta next time and save myself the trouble."

Pros: "Quiet, friendly, fast and efficient. What you'd want for a flight at 6am"

Pros: "The crew tried their best. The seats were average. The food ok."
Cons: "The entertainment is non-existent. Wifi wasn't even enabled. Four to five hours without ANY entertainment is totally unacceptable especially with teens and kids!!"

Pros: "My original flight from MSP to Grand Forks had the nicest pilot that went above and beyond his duties on and off aircraft."
Cons: "Switched planes 3 times, Gates 4 times and little communication on what to expect now, and moving forward. Ended up delayed on jetway 90 minutes before returning to gate to be switched on and off planes for 4 hours Also Delta broke my suitcase in 4 spots I will be contacting delta about this horrible experience!!!"

Pros: "Not sure who thought every passenger is 5'6 but for the rest of us, the seat pitch is ridiculously close. Like knees to the seat in front close. I'm 5'10 and I was very uncomfortable the entire flight."
Cons: "See above"

Pros: "Great trips notifications"

Pros: "Delta is the best airline by far."
Cons: "My bag did not make the connection even though there was almost 4 hours layover... :("

Pros: "New schedule"
Cons: "Missed connection die to delay by lightning. Rescefuled and put us up overnite but had comfort tickets and had to fly coach and seated separately."

Pros: "It all went very well. Arrived 20 minutes ahead of time. Wifi movies were great. Stewardesses were very efficient."

Pros: "The food"
Cons: "No entertainment"

Pros: "The crew was fantastic. I generally love flying Delta and find their crew to always be very professional and kind."
Cons: "As this was a smaller, regional jet, there weren't a lot of amenities. But that's fine, it's only a 40-minute flight!"

Pros: "Staff were awesome. Give them a raise."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "No air conditioner it's too hot inside"

Cons: "Got stuck for two hours sitting in the plane because the computer systems went down."

Pros: "Plane was clean, staff helpful"

Pros: "On time Clean airplane Smooth ride Friendly staff"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "smooth flight"
Cons: "I'm not sure if this staff is exhausted or just over there job, but they cow towed to a woman who made major complaints about the air conditioning and even gave her points to help her deal with the temperature. Strange. They were only gold stays and I'm only Platinum and didn't complain once. Oh well, that's delta, we all deal with their silence when we post anything that is unfair."

Cons: "Several hours was added to my travel day when my Calgary to Seattle flight was cancelled and I was rerouted from Calgary to Vancouver to Seattle. It seems to me that if an airline initiated change that significant occurs, I should have an option given me to change my itinerary."

Pros: "Everything was good. The crew was friendly and helpful. The food was delicious and there was more than enough. Boarding was fast."
Cons: "On my flight from Munich to Atlanta, the movies and tv series wouldn't play. Only the games worked."

Cons: "Paid for Comfort+ at the Kiosk. My app said I had a Comfort+ seat, but at boarding found out I had two (yes, two) non Comfort+ seats assigned to me. Had to call and tweet to get my payment for Comfort+ back. All in all a very poor showing for Delta's seat assignment and reservation system."

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: "Not much to like."
Cons: "Customer service not friendly, seats are not very good, no food or entertainment on a 3.5 hour flight. United just transports you from A to B for a high price."

Pros: "Flight was so smooth"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Punctuality, professionalism, and overall excellent customer service. Every personal i spoke with was very helpful and pleasant."
Cons: "There are too many good flight times with extensive layovers not enough non stop flights at reasonable times"

Pros: "Awesome Customer Service"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Nothing. Awesome Customer Service"

Cons: "Boarded faster and a bigger plane to put roller bags in the over head bin instead of checking them"

Cons: "Okey"

Pros: "I got there"
Cons: "Being on time for once"

Pros: "Chicken wrap"
Cons: "No individual screens on back of seat rests. Old tube televisions in the ceiling, in the aisle walkway that don’t retract. No WiFi. Which means not even movies on your own device."

Pros: "Greets you nicely, on time, caring staffs"

Pros: "Attendants courteous and helpful. Flight efficiently handled by pilots"
Cons: "Remote gate required shuttle. Should have been made aware so as to allow sufficient time not to rush. Advance notice that normal size carry on doesnt fit and must be checked"

Cons: "I'm 6ft2in not enough leg room"

Pros: "Experience was fine, Flight was late leaving & plane seamed pretty old. The crew however is was very good."

Pros: "Pilot sounded nice"
Cons: "Airline Attendant ride. Not 2 me. I stayed away from her seeing how she talked to other patrons. Yelling “get with the program. I’ll be watching you” for simple mistakes made before door of plane closed. Tried to talk elderly woman out of tea because she was lazy and didn’t bring hot water on her cart. Eventually brought it but why try to talk her out of it. Heavy set dark brown tall Attendant on flight 5874 Mesa Airlines. Lost my luggage. More and more friends, family & 1 flight expert says AA gets more complaints. Will try booking with another airline carrier in future unless absolute emergency to take AA. Worth $40.00 or more extra to get friendly service."

Pros: "American Airlines was fantastic. ALL personnel were professional yet friendly. They will be my airline of choice in the future."
Cons: "WEATHER! Any problem we experienced was weather related."

Cons: "Neverr made to Chicago due to maintenance issues on 2 separate planes. Missed connection, got a different flight to LaGuardia,, atill dont gave luggage that had been out for delivery since 6/30."

Cons: "Flight was 3- 4 hours late No food No reimbursement"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "American Airlines nor British airways honor kayaks booking codes in the event of an emergency"

Pros: "The crew and their understanding about our frustrations with delays"
Cons: "Repeated delays. Not AA’s fault."

Pros: "On-bard snacks and service"

Pros: "Flight was as expected, Nothing to report."
Cons: "Seat was fine and of course when the person in from recliner it was no longer fun. And that was on premium economy."

Pros: "I had a great experience on my flight and the staff could NOT have done a better job. I want to thank everyone from the boarding gate to the deboarding gate, for such a nice experience. But listen up Americans, the entertainment would’ve been better, if one: the internet was free like it was in MEXICO! And two: the sound worked for the movies. (That might’ve been my fault... or my phone’s fault). But, the free texting was something only available in a country to which Donald Trump (the most patriotic American in his whole wide mind) thinks is so inferior! What’s up America? Can’t afford to give us free WiFi in our planes? I hear ya... What’re you gonna do Trump, build a wall around the United State’s overpriced internet service?!? Just kidding folks! I had a great flight!"
Cons: "I didn’t like nothing! Haha... see that just sounds cool and negative to say... but if you want to get technical and check my syntax and grammar and stuff, that means I DID like EVERYTHING! And I did! Thanks American I appreciate you!"

Cons: "I had to stand on stairs while crew served drinks! Windy on stairs. Unacceptable! I felt like a second class customer!"

Pros: "Nothing - the flight from Chicago to Philadelphia was delayed by about 2 hours. Luckily, was able to get the flight switched to a Chicago - London direct flight."
Cons: "The connecting flight from Philadelphia to Manchester would've been missed. So, American Airlines booked the same flight for 24 hours later. Luckily, they offered a different flight. Due to the flight changes, the prepaid ground transportation from Manchester to Leeds wasn't used. Transportation from London to Leeds had to be purchased at a much greater additional expense."

Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "Horrible customer service, excessive baggage fees, rude counter staff, no leg room, narrow seats"

Pros: "On time arrival at destination"
Cons: "No food entertainment or other amenities available"

Pros: "Quiet plane."
Cons: "No local temperature control, back of plane too cold, middle too hot. No air vents at seats. 3 hours with no drink service, went to back asked for a diet coke, was told no. Flight attendant who was in the back would not give me one, said they were doing water service now and I should wait."

Pros: "Ss"
Cons: "Sd"

Pros: "Didn't have to turn around & come back like other flight. Still got to my destination in time."
Cons: "hour delay because too hot to land in El Paso, only then did they need to fuel the plane, then realized plane was overweight, made me wonder if making it up or really hadn't thought it out."

Cons: "."

Pros: "Companion in flight nice Korean girl... We chatted trough all flight time"
Cons: "Arrived and luggage did not arrive and had to open a claim and had to go back to pick my luggage next day, not pleasant considering I live in Juarez Mexico and had to cross the border all tired and fed up with this incident"

Pros: "No hassle. Drinks provided. No complaints."

Cons: "Very late"

Pros: "The FAs on this flight were nice, engaging and caring, the way they should be, so I was happy about that."
Cons: "There was a teenager in front of me that was turning back every few seconds and made me nervous what she was looking back for. Then, there was an elderly woman sitting right next to me that kept pushing me every time she'd get out her tablet, pills, pocketbook, etc. By the end of the short 2-hour flight, I've had it with her."

Pros: "Seating was surprisingly comfortable (S80). Left the gate about 4min early. Arrived at destination about 18min early. Full can of soda/juice offered rather than a single cup."
Cons: "Limited overhead storage (S80)."

Cons: "No place to put my purse!"

Pros: "One of the smoothest flights and landings ever."
Cons: "Each seat doesn't have its own screen. Plane feels older than JetBlue by a lot. First checked bag is not free like JetBlue. WiFi is another additional charge. Overall cost was significantly higher than JetBlue for less value."

Pros: "Flight on time"
Cons: "Need better crew the lady serving the snacks looked moody."

Pros: "The ginger ale."
Cons: "This was my return trip with more delays due to maintenance issues of the aircraft. 10/17/16 flight 1585 was the outgoing flight delayed five hours on my departing trip. I waited at the baggage carousel 15 minutes for my bag after over an hour delay due to switching aircrafts. With a flight arriving this late in the evening with the low volume of bags checked (due to checked luggage charges), this should not be the case. Five minutes to gulp down ginger ale."

Pros: "I was there 35 minutes early at the kiosk, checked in then it said unfortunately you missed your flight."

Pros: "I did like sitting on the left side of the plane. There's a little more room. I feel it's horrible how the airline charges so much and cram so many seats in one air craft. Making it a miserable flight."
Cons: "See above"

Cons: "Showed up 29 minutes before my earlier flight and was evicted. It took 7 hours to get on another one. Then that flight was delayed an hour due to the A/C not working. Frequent business traveler going to avoid AA at all costs from now on."

Pros: "At 10 pm no one would help to get a room to spend the night. No vouchers. No help for a mother with infant. Had to find hotel on own."
Cons: "See above. Horrible. Absolutely horrible experience."

Cons: "Terrible side to side of aeroport to get conetion fly with out time"

Pros: "We had a delay due to an equipment malfunction. They deboarded us so we didn't have to sit on a hot plane. That was greatly appreciated. The crew and gate personell in Cedar Rapids were very friendly and organized in getting us all back on the plane as quickly as possible."
Cons: "We made up time in the air to Dallas. We arrived early and waited about 15min. Due to another plane being in our gate."

Cons: "You take my money for nothing yu stolen my money why why you kayak my husband doesn't travel from Desmoines he is not in system why ????? bring my money back to my account aa"

Cons: "They could have told me more than 24 hours before my flight that they changed me to a different flight 4 hours earlier in the day!"

Cons: "On time arrival."

Pros: "The stewardess was very attentive"
Cons: "We waited about 20 min to take off and ended up coming in 30 min. late"

Cons: "No apologies for being delayed. More than 4 hours. No explanation. Nothing. Awful service."

Pros: "Delays were clearly communicated with ample time to make changes if necessary"
Cons: "TEEEEENY WEENY itty bitty plane - hard to be comfortable- but fortunately it was a short flight"

Pros: "Easy connections, very timely and everything worked out great."
Cons: "Plane was full"

Cons: "I had to check my carry on from DEN to DSM because flight was full which I was told I could pickup at gate.. at the gate the TSA agent was very rude to me as I was confused as where my bag was, which I had to to baggage claim."

Pros: "Great boarding and friendly service"
Cons: "Nothing to report"

Pros: "Boarding seemed smother than usual. I had an issue with a large back pack that wouldn't fit in the overhead due to a smaller plane travelling to Houston from Des Moines, Flight attendant was extremely helpful as it was expensive camera equipment and was able to stow it so that i didn't have to check it at the door. Most appreciated their sensitivity."

Cons: "The United crew really needs an attitude check. How can someone be angry at 6 am?"

Cons: "The plane was not at the airport on time and when it caused us to miss the flight they blamed the weather instead of the plane not being at the airport on time. They were rude and refused to give hotel vouchers."

Cons: "Customer service for united is terrible and the attendants were rude while we were delayed for 2 hours on the tarmac"

Pros: "No problems with connections or staff who wheeled me from place to place."

Pros: "Flight left right on time and arrived to the destination early - which was great because i had an extremely short layover"

Pros: "Decent room on the flight. No food or drink."

Pros: "Friendly service,. On time"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Everybody was so friendly"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "No delays"
Cons: "Everyone was super nice and gelpful"

Pros: "Quick and easy. Nice crew."

Pros: "I was treated wonderfully and had an amazing times."
Cons: "Everything was great."

Pros: "I slept the entire time."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Attitude of gate agent, crews. Boarding penalizes all but highest level and they've demoted me since the merger and erased my 30 year history with UAL. Watched them mishandle a paraplegic passenger until another passenger swapped seats. Last choice for me."

Cons: "Tight seats, full flights"

Pros: "Leg room and a snack was provided. Also, the entertainment options were top notch except that you had to use your own device."

Pros: "The crew worked quickly to get me another flight when I was not gonna make my connection flight."
Cons: "The plane malfunctioned and their time management of telling us when it was gonna be fixed was poor."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Crowded, overbooked, made me check my carry on which made me miss my train. Took 4 flights to get to my final destination. Small seats, uncomfortable... list goes on and on"

Pros: "The flight attendant was one of the best ever - super sweet, funny, and accomodating. Also, the pilot nailed a super sweet landing at the end."
Cons: "Everything else. The only redeeming feature of the flight experience was the great flight attendant onboard and the fact that we actually landed at my destination. The coffee maker onboard had been broken for a long time and the airline couldn't be bothered to fix it. If I were the flight crew, I would have gone on strike. No leg (or arm) room on the express jet really punctuated a 34 hour itinerary with a sour note. I could barely walk off the plane in the end. Less comfortable than a cheap rental truck for the same amount of time. I likely won't fly again with United. I'd almost rather walk next time to be completely honest. At least it would be healthier!"

Cons: "Cancelled flight. No true explanation. Lack of detail and delay caused me to miss other flight opportunities."

Cons: "The airplane needed to be swapped, which caused an hour delay and made me miss my flight"

Pros: "I loved it"

Cons: "A two hour and 10' flight became a three hour wait, then we boarded only to have to de-plane now because mechanical issues. Then walk to the other end of the terminal and re-board yet a second time. Total time at the airport and travel time for this short flight is: 8 hours"

Pros: "Staff was ok."

Pros: "At least I made it"
Cons: "Flight attendant for United 426 to Chicago was rude, flight delayed and they weren't very helpful"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Lack of updates"

Pros: "Everything's on time"
Cons: "No,"

Cons: "The snack"

Pros: "The flight itself was uneventful and went as expected."
Cons: "We were instructed to hand in our hand luggage before boarding the plane which meant we had to wait in a long one after the flight to get the luggage back. HOWEVER, the plane had plenty of overhead luggage room to accommodate our luggage. We were told by the cabin staff that the gate personnel don't always check what size plane it is before requiring everyone to hand in their luggage."

Pros: "Flight on time, no delays or problems"
Cons: "Seating for midgets"

Cons: "About two hours before my flight, it was canceled after previously making an airplane switch the night before after checking in online. The I received an email while I was on the way to the airport saying that the airplane that I was going to fly out on was canceled due to airplane maintenance. While I am happy they didn't fly the plane while needing maintenance, they should have planned ahead and known of the maintenance or had a backup ready to go. Obviously it must have been something they just found, but in the big picture of things. You have to pay an way to much for a flight as it is. They should have to solve their own issues to honor their part of the contract. We (as customers) can't cancel a flight with out penalties. Why shouldn't they have to do the same?"

Pros: "On the trip from Des Moines to Houston, timeliness of flight was great. The boarding went smooth and was done quickly. The crew were friendly and courteous. Overall the first half of the trip was fine."
Cons: "I was extremely disappointed in the condition of my luggage when I picked it up plane side. The wheel was broke off and all the pockets had been unzipped and it appeared they had been rummaged through. I had to drag my bag through the terminal. I spoke with 3 individuals with United who referred me onto the next and each unwilling as the previous to help. I myself am in customer service and would never treat my customers the way I was treated by the employees representing your Airline. I would go above and beyond to make the sure that the customers experience was a great one in spite of the unfotunate incident so they would return. I have never flown United before, and I will not consider your airline in the future."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I paid extra money for our seats so we cud sit together N I ended up on the front of the plane N my boyfriend clear in the back I'll never fly United again y the hell did I pay almost 25$ per seat to sit together to sit on opposite ends of the plane"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Haven't left Houston yet so I wouldn't know how the flight was."

Pros: "They whole computer system went down all morning"
Cons: "I haven't made it. Their computer system was down all morning. I got a pretty inexpensive flight which was refunded. Although I can't go home, all the one way tickets are 3 times the price. Me and my 6 month old baby can't get home to his daddy."

Pros: "Crew was great!"

Cons: "They lost my bag for my entire vacation. They found it and "rushed" it to me, but it got waylaid in SFO and would have sat there had I not called them. Then they said they would deliver it to my hotel. When it arrived 4 days later, they said I could pick it up and they would not deliver it. I was 2.5 hours away. I told them to send it home, but they didn't and when I flew home 7 days later, it was still sitting in Munich!"

Pros: "Everything was great, no waits, and right on time!"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "That the flight was on time. disenchanted flight attendants. Makes you want to not need her assistance."
Cons: "Disenchanted flight attendants. For whatever reason, it is obvious that there is unhappiness. Not flat affect, just the look of disinterest, a look that tells you I don't care. In a customer based business it is so disheartening that the very person you may have to depend on to survive is not vested in the clientele that keeps her company in business, thereby insuring future paychecks. I'd like to communicate here that it wasn't all the attendants on either flight, but enough that it was obvious to anyone who paid even casual attention. I was flying home to California, so there were two additional flights a few days before the flights home. I never had any of the same flight attendants on any of the flight. As far as my observation of the attendants, as stated above, I think that speaks volumes. I will cite an example that happened on my trip from Iowa to Denver. I need wheelchair assistance, I walk with a cane, but not able to walk any distance. I pack a light carry-on, bring my purse, jacket and cane. I was being wheeled up the passageway in a regular wheelchair, and the man pushing me stated to the on-coming crew he "would be right back to get my suitcase, couldn't take both at the same time", and added " unless one of you could roll it up?". After an embarrassing pause, a female flight attendant said "Let the flight attendant do it. Add this to the list of responsibilities that aren't really my job." I actually twisted around to look at this person, I was so stunned to hear that! She grabbed my rolling carry-on handle and the look spoke columns. I was embarrased. Thank you. Debra K. Forsythe"

Pros: "Everything was great and the trip was on time perfect"

Cons: "I have flown with United several times and will be avoiding this airline in the future. After notification that our flight had been delayed by 3 hours, the customer service was awful. The United representatives at the gate told us they could not rebook us nor would they be able to assist us with locating a different connecting flight. We then contacted customer service by phone and were directed to connecting flights. However the connecting flights were at an airport two hours away. After being informed that we would not be able to fly out the next day from the Des Moines airport, we. Had no other choice but to rent a car to drive to the Omaha airport. We had to rent a car because they would not accommodate us by changing our return flights to match where we flying out of. This whole experience has been awful for a trip that has been booked for more than 6 months. I plan to continue to inform the public of this horrendous experience."

Cons: "I find it very frustrating that I get this great deal and get charged for EVERYTHING. Bags...drinks...snacks. I mean not even a cookie or pretzels? In the end I’m paying for a budget flight where I would have been treated like a valued customer."

Cons: "This flight was delayed for more than three hours and for my inconvenience a $50 voucher !!!"

Pros: "Cheaper"
Cons: "More comfortable, better food items"

Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Delayed, uncomfortable seats"

Pros: "Simple and more affordable"
Cons: "To know if water had to be purchased or if it was free."

Pros: "Ticket was bought for my son and he missed the flight due to a vehicle accident involving him."
Cons: "Ticket was bought for my son and he missed the flight due to a vehicle accident involving him. Due to this unforeseen accident and the policy there is no way to recover or exchange part of the price to apply towards a future flight. The airline charges you to even speak to customer service."

Pros: "Attendants were nice"
Cons: "Seats are hard, late plane, over an hour late"

Cons: "Never fly. Never send a messange by phone or email."

Cons: "Expensive food and beverage"

Cons: "Uncomfortable seating,my neck and my back hurts"

Cons: "Very uncomfortable trip. By the time I was done paying for baggage and a seat cus I don’t want to sit in the middle I could have bought a more expensive flight"

Pros: "The plane was new and very clean"
Cons: "This was the final leg of my return from Athens, Greece ....... a short 3.5 hour flight that turned into a nearly 4 hour delay arriving home at 3:40am and in with patients at work at 8am. Also when asked for a soft drink, I paid for this? Shouldn’t a simple soft drink be some courtesy after such a delay? Just thinking out loud from past experiences I’ve had with my travels"

Pros: "Was nice that they waited for a couple passengers instead of closing the door on the dot. The stewardess were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "I would have really liked WiFi and some healthy food options. They were out of the beef jerky and everything else was even more unhealthy. The flight was full and felt pretty tight and crowded."

Pros: "Seats"
Cons: "Paying for water"

Pros: "on-time flight, easy boarding, friendly staff, flight duration announcement (I like to know how long the flight time will be wheels up to wheels down)."
Cons: "the seats didn't recline and were uncomfortable. I also didn't like paying $80 round-trip for a small carry-on"

Pros: "The staff was so kind and made the trip fun, very fast flight but so enjoyable. I honestly will not fly another airline if frontier is available. And best of all it was inexpensive... other flights were pushing 500$ and I got this ticket for 200$ overall great experience!!"
Cons: "Only thing was I couldn't buy a drink with cash which is all I had on me but I think that's every airline so nothing frontier specific :)"

Pros: "Easy"
Cons: "Prices change quickly"

Pros: "We were boarded quickly, ahead of schedule and were able to reach destination almost a half hour ahead of time. Nice crew, plane clean"
Cons: "This is not just Frontier - it is a BIGGER passengers trying to sit in constantly shrinking seat widths and leg room. I sat next to a very nice BIG person that was in my seat with me....had to keep the armrest up to allow them to fit. I know your bottom line is profit - so shrinking the passenger seat/room when the population as a whole is expanding makes flying overall a not good experience. I am waiting for you all to officially charge us for Cain air seperately."

Pros: "Comfortable flight, cheap rates"
Cons: "Some maintenance problems prior to boarding, gate agents not well prepared for situation, very hard to hear and understand their PA announcements"

Pros: "Barely anything - from check in, to waiting at the gate, to the flight experience, there was no positive to flying Frontier. If I had to pick a positive, it would be that I had a safe flight to my destination."
Cons: "The check in process did not work on line, so I checked in at that airport. Then, the flight was delayed. My flight time was originally 7:15a.m. I received an on line notice that the flight was delayed after 8a.m. - NOT HELPFUL. Then, at the gate, we weren't told that the flight was delayed until after 7:15a.m. The flight was delayed twice, with minimal to no explanation. We were told there was a mechanical issue that could take 10 minutes or 10 hours to fix. The staff was VERY rude to anyone who asked what was happening, as well as to several passengers who had been on the previous flight and had deplaned to get food, drinks, etc. The seating on the flight is very uncomfortable and there is no offer for drinks (non-alcoholic) or snacks of any type without paying extra money. There was a fair amount of turbulence during the flight, and the landing was very rough compared to several other flights I have been on recently. Overall, I would never recommend Frontier to anyone. Ever."

Pros: "Seat was not uncomfortable"
Cons: "Mechanical problem and delay and no option to bring another plane or crew in or have us fly another airline to destination. Flight delayed in stages till 19 hours later it did leave."

Cons: "Flight was delayed 3 hours and this impacted my plans."

Pros: "Price and service"
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable and soft drinks were not free."

Pros: "Terrible. The charge extra for everything: $40 for a carryon bag, $11 to reserve a seat, $3.99 for a soda."

Cons: "Charged more for carry on than checked no entertainment"

Pros: "It was on time."
Cons: "The baggage fee was too high."

Pros: "Very helpful staff. I planned wrong but they still got me onto my flight."
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable and cramped, but i knew that coming in."

Pros: "People"
Cons: "Concourse changes last minute and not communicated..."

Pros: "The crew was nice, and the plane was clean."
Cons: "I purchased my ticket at a good price but if you didn't watch all of the catchy add-ons you were paying a much higher price. That is why you must always read the fine print. It was almost impossible to check in online as I had to keep starting over not sure why."

Cons: "The luggage took forever to come out and caused me to miss a bus"

Pros: "#dicksoutforharambe"
Cons: "#neverforget"

Pros: "The flight crew was alright."
Cons: "Did not like that everytime I fly the flight is delayed, usually by a lot."

Cons: "Two hour delays on both flights"

Pros: "We arrived safely."
Cons: "Over 6 hours of delays - about 45 minutes in the plane waiting for a gate, the rest waiting for the flight to arrive. The worst part is not a single person offered any kind of explanation - no one in the airport and no one on the plane. When do you ever wait 5 1/2 hours for a meeting and receive no explanation for the delay? Inexcusable. Frontier will always be my very last resort from now on."

Pros: "The staff was friendly"
Cons: "The four hour delay sucked so bad"

Pros: "Good efficient staff, newer aircraft, comfortable seats"
Cons: "cramped seating, no food/beverages at all, attempts to get more money for seats during on-line check-in. It seemed deceitful, set up to make people think they had to upgrade or they wouldn't get a seat."

Cons: "Everything had a charge so I didn't have any food or drinks. The crew was ok minus missing a trash pickup once and the demonstrations lacked energy. The announcer was fine. Seats were fairly uncomfortable."

Cons: "late departure late arrival sat on tarmac 40 minutes"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "When we checked our bags it cost me and my friend $125.00 dollars to check our bags what a never fly Frontier again."

Cons: "Is it really that desperate that airlines have to charge $2 for soda?"

Pros: "The crew was very friendly."
Cons: "Seats are small and I'm a small women. Very basic plane for that long of a trip."

Pros: "The cheap fare."
Cons: "Paying for luggage that I carried on. Paying for every drink, except water. Paying for snacks."

Cons: "Flight was very full. No room to stretch. Seats close together. Felt cramped."

Pros: "The 40 minutes the flight was late the crew made up in the air"
Cons: "Took 45 minutes for baggage to appear"

Cons: "The plane left close to 6 hours late - no known reason. Would have left an hour earlier but since Frontier only has one gate at LGA, we had to wait for another plane that landed a minute or two before ours to deplane and reboard and leave the gate."

Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "There is no leg room for tall people!"

Pros: "Speedy boarding and fast flight, crew was ok."
Cons: "Charged for one bag, charged for soda and chips on plane."

Pros: "Southwest is pretty much my only other option to fly diect from MCO to IND. Southwest would charge me 3X as much for basically the same experience. Sure, Southwest might not charge me $1.99 + tip for a can of soda, but that's because they charge me $100s more on the airfare. I'll take $1.99 can of soda any day. The flight was on time. Boarding was simple and stress-free. The crew was friendly and efficient. The seats were a bit cramped, but not intolerable for a 2 hr flight. I could have purchased an aisle seat for about $30 more, which would still be cheaper than Southwest, but I chose to save money instead. I like having that choice. My baggage arrived intact and on time. Why would I fly with any other airline at these savings?"

Cons: "When I checked in, 16 hrs pre-flight, flight was WIDE open. I booked a $20 seat. Got on, flight packed. Asked to pay to upgrade my seat, I had to pay an ADDITIONAL $50 for an exit row & rec'd no credit for the seat I had originally purchased. Also, flight attendant Randall Stride was really liked to exercise his "power" as a steward. He was not very friendly."

Pros: "Overall it was a good experience. The crew was very nice and attentive to my needs. The boarding process was very smooth."
Cons: "The seats don't recline and since this was a night flight that was a drag. The tray table is not big enough to really work so with out being able to work or sleep it was not conducive to being a great experience and there was no free radio. So I rated the entertainment as boring. The reason I said the food was poor was I didn't feel like $2 for a Diet Coke was a value so I had water. The water was bottled and good so I went up to a mediocre."
