They made us check carry ons despite the entire aircraft overhead space being empty

Departed 25 min late with no explanation. Arrival time was very off due to late departure but would have appreciated a better estimate.

I liked the timeliness of the departure and arrival, and the crew were good. The turbulence was rough, though.

The whole experience was great. Boarding is so orderly. The staff is super helpful. The wifi works great the whole flight so I was able to text for the entire flight. The best part was that it was orderly even when we were exiting the flight.

Pros: "left on time and arrived on time"
Pros: "Well organized and easy to check in."
Cons: "No"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Idk terrible flight experience with delta"
Pros: "Lift off and landing was excellent"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Crew was very good."
Cons: "Seat assignment at gate was inconvenient b/c jt dissuades you from taking a bathroom break before the flight. They can't prefer that you go on the plane."
Pros: "The free movie/entertainment system"
Cons: "Leg room limited, but seats were ok"
Cons: "food options"
Pros: "The ceew"
Cons: "Unorganized boarding and 6 hour delay from expected departure time."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled after multiple delays and waiting 8 hours"
Pros: "I got home alive."
Cons: "The crew was surly. The flight was delayed. We received little information about the delays."
Cons: "If it had left on time Waited 3 hours at the airport"
Pros: "Flight was very late- about 45 minutes because of some problem with the "paperwork" they said. It was a beautiful day and the crew was ready to go, but we all sat for a long time before being allowed to leave Madison. It's especially bad when we've all made ourselves arrive at 5am for a 6am flight"
Cons: "on time departure"
Cons: "The airport."
Cons: "Delays due to Democrats not making deal"
Pros: "Arrived on time and smooth flight though it was completely full"
Pros: "I was rerouted through Detroit after it was apparent I would miss my connecting flight. The flight was good and I have no complaints."
Pros: "Overall Service!!!!"
Cons: "People Should Use The Overhead Bins Next To Their Seats, "Not Someone Else's", Thank You Very Much"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "No chicken sandwich."
Pros: "Crew was pleasant. Boarding was fast and efficient, nobody bumrushed."
Cons: "The non-reclining seat right next to the bathroom door opening should not exist. I was miserable there; I swear everyone on the plane made sure to take a dump on this <2 hour flight. Also none of the windows on any of these small planes line up with the actual positions of seats and it sucks."
Pros: "The take off and landing were very smooth and the crew was nice."
Cons: "Crying baby aboard"
Cons: "My flight was delayed, which would have caused me to miss my connecting flight. The customer service person was not at all helpful, and told me there were no other flights available on any airline until the next day. However, I was able to go online and book another flight immediately...which means that she was either being disingenuous or actively undermining efforts to get me home in a timely fashion. Very disappointing and as a SkyMiles member would have thought there would be some level of common courtesy dealing with a non-weather related delay that drastically impacted my travel plans."
Cons: "The connecting flight from Atlanta to NY was rescheduled for an hour and fifteen minutes later, boarding for the delayed flight started late, closed doors were another 20 minutes late, spend another hour or so waiting for confirmations, during which no AC is on because of a malfunction on the plane with the electricity unit. Due to rough air conditions, no in-flight service, or very limited one - and all of those are fine by me, and not the airlines' fault at all. But then, during all these unexpected conditions, I can't even use the in flight entertainment system as i use Bluetooth earphones, and to get earphones I have to buy them for 2$. To earn excellent service, inspite of all the delays, AC malfunction and unpleasantness all you had to do was give those 2$ earphones for free. I have another flight with SkyTeam coming up and I do hope it won't be as unpleasant as it is a much longer flight."
Pros: "Snacks, cleanliness and crew"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "The flight was probably only half booked, the crew was awesome, very attentive and accommodating. Legroom at seat 13A was plenty. Also the fact that messaging is free is convenient."
Cons: "No food to purchase. The flight was over dinner time. Boarding - the ground staff’s announcements weren’t very intelligible."
Pros: "Seat was narrow from side to side; so short from front to back that only half my thigh was supported; hard; and pitched slightly forward from uneven wear. This was an exit row, so I had legroom at least. I’m 5’4” and trim. A taller, or broader person would not fit!"
Pros: "The crew did the best they could under the circumstances."
Cons: "The flight was scheduled for 7:45 pm. Due to the storm the day before, my flight out of Miami was cancelled and I was told that the flight out of W Palm Beach was my only option. I paid $150 for an Uber at 4 pm. At 6:37, I got an email with news of a two hour delay. I would’ve appreciated an earlier notice. But much worse was the boarding experience. As half the passengers had boarded, someone announced that we had to have everyone boarded and seated in 5 minutes, or else the crew would time out, and we’d have to stay in WPalm. This set off a frenzy, with seated passengers yelling at the people boarding to hurry!! I was told by the pilot while exiting in LGA, that we made it by 30 seconds! It could’ve been handled so much better!"
Cons: "Delayed for no reason"
Cons: "By mistake I booked my ticket for the wrong date Called to change it, wait time was over 2hrs went to the delta app and it cost me $200 to do it. Get to airport and ask for an up grade not possible but if I paid $200 when rebooking the flight I could have gotten one. Snacks were horrible and I have a delta card and was charged $29 to get in plus a charge for my extra suitcase. It’s ridiculous given the amount of money I spend on m card on the monthly basis. Very disappointing"
Pros: "Got me where I needed to go at the price I wanted to pay. - The gals at the ticketing desk were extremely helpful and cheerful."
Cons: "Not my typical Delta experience: -Boarding for special needs was a joke. A literal ‘run-on-sentence’. No more did I get up and they went to the next group. I was almost knocked over in the rush. -The onboard staff was nice enough. However, between the two of them, one of them had a thick accent. Maybe that one shouldn’t be the one making all on board announcements… and please fix the horrendous crackles too!!! -It seemed our pilot was in training… during our short flight a series of right and left turns were made, no effort to avoid turbulence, and the landing was surprisingly hard. It felt as if my spine took a quick jab to my brain as a result! What’s up?"

Pros: "Great trips notifications"
Pros: "Very nice flight and attentive staff. Enjoyed the view of NYC as we flew up the East River, then looped over Nassau County to approach LGA."
Cons: "The male flight attendant who handed out the complimentary drinks and snacks acted a bit strangely. I was very thirsty, and I asked him if I could keep the rest of the can of soda. He neither said yes nor no, but rather completely ignored what I said and just poured my drink and moved on. I was a mildly annoyed, but figured maybe it was policy and he was shy and didn't want to debate the matter. When he took care of the older couple behind us, however, things got really strange. He asked them whether they wanted pretzels or peanuts, but they misheard him and asked for a ginger ale. I happened to know that he did have ginger ale, since my wife had just gotten one, but rather than just pouring the old folks a drink, he repeated himself. "Peanuts or pretzels?" They misheard again and asked him whether he had a diet ginger ale. Again, rather than just pour them the drink, he repeated himself. "Peanuts or pretzels?" This went round and round a few more times -- like a poorly designed computer UI that refuses to accept anything except the correct input -- before the old couple finally figured out the disconnect and picked their snacks before their drinks. Very weird."
Pros: "Please call me. Why did you double charge me? I took my parents for a trip and you charge me 2 twice?? Call me 416 888 4387"
Cons: "You charge me twice. Call me 416 888 4387"
Pros: "Got lucky, and got an upgrade!"
Cons: "Good staff on the plane very sweet like. Actually arrived early. Thought we would get breakfast on the flight from Madison Wisconsin to New York City."
Pros: "Pleasant crew, newer plane, and very efficient travel time"
Cons: "The boarding process was extremely slow, "Comfort Plus" seats in the smaller regional jet were definitely not worth the upgrade."
Pros: "Crew did an outstanding job"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "Pretty much nothing"
Cons: "Delta. They just hate their passengers"
Pros: "Overall the service was good. Boarding was very organized"
Cons: "There was a disturbance among 3 other passengers. A member of the crew was in the process of making arrangements to move my husband and myself to put some physical distance between these passengers. I issue is that at no time did he discuss this option with us. He was instituting the move when the male passenger stated he did not want to move"
Cons: "Not enough water on the flight and we landed in a parking lot and shuttled back to the airport."
Pros: "The Delta cookies that were offered as a snack"
Cons: "I don't understand why there's always a lack of space when the flight is full. Were the aircrafts not designed to accommodate a full flight's worth of luggage? anf then when I went to go to my seat, the air stewardess told me to progress down the aisle so someone that they knew could pass through, causing a delay in me getting to my seat as well as losing my overhead luggage space as someone else passing utilized it instead. Now I am in my seat with both my carry on and personal item stowed below. So was I comfortable ? No. Was I upset and annoyed, on top of being tired? Yes. They need a better system."
Pros: "The flight itself was fairly quick."
Cons: "We were late by 4hours and they kept changing the times. I wish they would have set it to one time like the other airlines. The seating is uncomfortable and there was no entertainment."
Pros: "On time Clean airplane Smooth ride Friendly staff"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "There were many empty seats, and when I moved from a cramped seat to a fully open row, the attendant rudely and humiliatingly admonished me for moving to a comfort+ from my "preferred" seat. It was unprofessional and extremely uncalled for. The seats were completely empty and there was no reason for him to admonish me loudly and rudely. I suffer from severe general anxiety disorder, fur which I take appropriate medications, but this incident caused an anxiety attack that lasted through the rest of the flight. Extremely disturbing that crew would behave so rudely and insensitively to anyone."
Cons: "Plane was dirty when boarding and older than usual with a broken intercom speaker above us - squawking volume that rang every time the captain or seatbelt light came on. Staff were loud throughout this evening flight where everyone tried to get some shut eye. NOT kid friendly. overhead bins didn't fit the standard carry on correctly requiring everyone to place them sideways with wasted space and therefore not enough luggage room for everyone, crowding an already fully booked flight. A few more reasons why we'll never fly delta again"
Cons: "Plane was diverted back to Toronto from LaGuardia airport as we were told due to "weather", landed late at night and were told that due to not being able to control weather WestJet could not assist with accommodations, leaving everyone stranded and scrambling to find a room in alreday booked up hotels. When speaking on phone with agent, I was told it wasn't due to weather but incident at LaGuardia where plane went off runway. I paid $130.00 for 5 hours in a hotel, due to pilot error, not weather. La Guardia opened it's other runway immediately after and other airports in NewYork were running fine. Completely unacceptable and extremely bad customer service as CSR simply told us "sorry we can't help". Will never book with West Jet again."
Pros: "I had a great pilot on this flight. He always told us what was happening, why we had a wait on the tarmac in LGA, why he anticipated it might be a choppy flight, how to access in flight entertainment so we could be distracted. Gave us some trivia questions. Joked about Pokemon go, walked along the aisle talking to us. He was awesome!"
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable. But what else is new?"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Special assistance readily available"
Cons: "The weather"
Cons: "We had to wait for an hour on the runway until we could approach the gate"
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "If there were no delays"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable enough to sleep for a few hours"
Cons: "The ac in cabin could have been a lot colder"
Cons: "Baggage handler lost my bag, grabbed it off plane cabin, never found"
Cons: "Too freakin cold."
Cons: "No personal entertainment system. Has to use my phone."
Cons: "Seats are narrow and no leg room"
Cons: "Delayed flight. Seat didn't recline."
Pros: "A bit more legroom than united airlines. Tvs were a plus. The service was excellent and they give you a full can of soda instead of just a dram."
Cons: "Nothing really it was a great value for the price."
Cons: "No delay"
Pros: "the best seat ever and very amazing crew"
Pros: "The crew were nice people."
Cons: "There was no air conditioning and we were re-routed all the way down to Kentucky on the way back!"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Landing, temperature, passengers"
Pros: "I arrived safely at my destination"
Cons: "Flight was turbulent, plane was messy, crew had a hard time noticing when passengers needed anything."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled, some staff I dealt with to rebook had some attitude issues, others where fine. Overall not very transparent throughout the process. Definitely could've been much more helpful."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They canceled my flight. And they keep us at the airport until 10pm to tell us that flight got canceled. The worst part was they offer us to we buy with with “discount” embarrassing. They could tell me at 6pm that flight is canceled and to find other way to get to nyc."
Cons: "plane was too hot...AA needs to keep a lower temp and pump air through their plane...on a crowded flight like this was, claustrophobia set in. First time I ever experienced this."
Pros: "Knowing what carousel luggage was at - I suppose."
Cons: "Extended wait times in taxi departing and landing - took over an hour longer than expected. LaGuardia airport forced passengers to take their car services by walking outside and waiting in a parking garage with (12 degree Fahrenheit feels like -4 and 20 mph winds). Felt frostbite, couldn’t move fingers, and have a sinus headache. absolutely appalling this is NY and USA - yet we can’t have car services pick up pasengers outside the door of the airport, instead require to walk 7 minutes and stand in a freezing air tunnel airport garage. Changes my mind on flying to LAGUARDIA in the future"
Pros: "Comfortable seats and snack / drinks service"
Cons: "Delayed flight departure and bumpy landing"
Cons: "They lost my luggage. They did not allow me to take her whit me in the plane because i did not fit a suitcase that always travel on top because is small suitcase terrible I will never travel again with amercan airlines"
Cons: "Our last 6 flights have all been changed or delayed significantly. Then they loose our bags on a direct flight. Won’t fly America airlines again!"
Cons: "X"
Cons: "Took off late from Minneapolis only to announce that there was something wrong with the plane, no explanation as to what but that we had to circle to burn off fuel before returning to Minneapolis. Switched to a flight to D.C. with a connection to get to LGA. As soon as we sat down on that flight an announcement was made that we wouldn't make our connecting flight. Got to D.C. and asked to switch to go into Westchester instead of LGA which we were denied. So changed to another connecting flight to LGA that didn't take off on time. Offered nothing for any of the inconveniences. Etc."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly."
Pros: "The available movies and games in personal screen"
Cons: "Seat selection"
Cons: "When I arrived at the gate, the flight was on time, but no aircraft was at the gate. The gate attendants left at the time we were supposed to Board, then the departure time changed on the board and no announcement was made. Another gate attendant told me that the aircraft was at DYT, but the reason for delay was crew rest. As the delays continued, 3 in all, we were told that the aircraft was at DYT but we were waiting on a crew to be flown in from Charlotte. Not sure how AA messed up their crew rest schedule on domestic regional jet carrier. Either way, a new gate attendant arrived to take over, and continued to tell us we were waiting on crew. Then the story changed to waiting on aircraft and crew. By the time the 3rd change in departure had been made, and we were still waiting on aircraft and cre, AA failed to continue to update the departure and arrival times. Once we boarded around 9:00pm the boarding time still showed 8:10pm. Then we sat on the runway awaiting departure for approx 40 minutes before taking off. Very poor communication And customer service."
Pros: "We had to wait in the airplane upon arrival in La Guardia NY because wheelchair was not ready."
Pros: "BATE AND SWITCH. I BUY A TICKET TO DISCOVER IT DOENST ALLOW ME TO CARRY MY ROLLER BAG ON BOARD UNLESS I PAY A $60.00 FEE, YES $60. I GUESS THIS IS HOW TO MAKE A PROFIT EVEN IF YOU MAKE YOUR CUSTOMER FEEL LIKE A SUCKER! THANKS AMERICAN AIRLINE FOR LETTING ME KNOW YOU ONLY CARE ABOUT YOUR STOCKHOLDER AND THE CUSTOMER IS JUST A WAY TO MAKE THE STOCKHOLDERS AND EXECUTIVES (WHO GET BIG BONUS') HAPPY. SINCE YOU NOW ACT LIKE SPIRIT AIRLINES MAYBE YOU SHOULD MERGE WITH THEM TOO. I WANT BE TRAVELING AMERICAN AGAIN UNLESS ITS THE ONLY CHOICE I HAVE. IM GLAD TO SHARE MY STORY WITH OTHERS."
Cons: "NOTHING"
Pros: "The mobile updates were helpful and timely."
Cons: "The overhead space was smaller on this plane and as I learned on my trip to DTW my weekender carry-on would not fit with my shoes in it. Because of this, I pulled my shoes out and put them in a collapsible bag that fit under the seat in front of me along with my small personal bag as I had done on my previous flight. However, the gate agent would not allow me to board the plane and would not listen to my explainations at all as I tried to keep the boarding process moving along. She kept repeating "you have 3 bags" and made me steep out of line and check my carry-on (which I would then have to pick up at baggage claim). When I asked why I couldn't get out on the jetway like she had done for other passengers she said, " I only did that for airline employees" (quick happened to be a flight attendant from Spirit). My overall experience on both flights to and from Detroit was that the gate agents and flight attendants were the most unhelpful and rude airline employees I have delt with and I will stick to my preferred carrier, Delta, for my future flights back and forth to Detroit. They certainly make me feel like a valued customer when I fly them, which I did not feel with American."
Cons: "The plane was very old."
Cons: "We waited for 3 hours inside the plane on taxi then had to get off for an hour because of traffic delays."
Pros: "i like the wifi internet that AA provided. Great movies"
Cons: "The flight attendants were highly rude and i felt as if i was discriminated on. I was sitting in the back and the flight attendant who was suppose to assist us made us feel like i was a bother to her. First of all she just rudly dropped biscuits on my table didnt ask if i wanted and then I had to ask her for coffee, she didnt ask me if i wanted something to drink. Finally she brought my daughter and I some coffee. i ask for sugar and she said im very busy you have to wait....eventually she gave me one packet of sugar. I had to ask for another sugar for my daughter , so when i ask she gets upset and tells me i have to wait but there as a white who ask for assistance and she was very polite to her."
Cons: "I am missing two items that I had in my checked bag and my clothes and belongings were all messy as if it had been gone through. I am very upset that these items were likely taken by whoever went through my bag."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight attendant called cops on passenger sitting next to me to be escorted off the plane for no reason!"
Pros: "Got to La Guardia almost 26 minutes early but then waited FORTY minutes for the gate!"
Cons: "AA needs better coordination with the horrible La Guardia airport"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled we were re-routed and didn't get there until 24hours later."
Cons: "Late late cancelled chaos in reassignment late late One agent threw up hands said I'm done and left with long line of passengers not yet reassigned Person behind me asked why didn't we take Delta?"
Pros: "Everything was on time and great."
Cons: "Ever thing was fine."
Cons: "Without any explanation...American Airlines cancelled my reservation! I needed to be sent back to poor quality hotel for a night and take a different flight out the next morning. American Airlines was supposed to provide transportation back and forth from the hotel however a car never showed up at the hotel to pick us up and I needed to get my own taxi at the last minute (American did however reimburse me for the taxi fare at the airport). I never received an explanation as to why my reservation was cancelled and was never offered any type of compensation for such a major inconvenience. They dd ultimately waive my 25 bag fee but it wasn't very easy to even get that from them. I felt that they should have been more empathetic towards my inconvenience and offered me any type of compensation to make up for such a horrible experience. When I asked about possibly being upgraded to first class they told me absolutely not! A little graciousness can go a long way, American Airlines showed that they could not care less about my inconvenience (other than Rodrigo at the counter the next morning who actually showed he was truly sorry for the situation and at least ended up moving me to a row with more legroom). Other than this, I was extremely disappointed with this experience and how it was handled."
Pros: "I liked how quick the flight was to New York"
Cons: "Once boarding the plane and searching for my seat number , all of the cabin went pitch black . The lights went out for not more than a few moments. When the lights came back it was problematic and dim then fully lit to flickering off and on. Whenever it "seems" to have any electrical or mechanical failure. It's natural as a passenger my first thought is it's a Bad omen . I had genuinely lost some faith in the plane ."
Cons: "American airlines was helpful to embark my daughter who lost her conection from Miami to NYC"
Pros: "It was good fly can't complaint the attention was great"
Cons: "When I was flying to Arkansas from NY they didn't give anything to eat"
Pros: "Very efficient boarding, comfortable coach seats, good crew"
Cons: "No food! except pretzels and sandwiches for purchase. I didn't purchase a sandwich but on the outbound flight, the two guys next to me did and were both vocal about their disappointment with what they received for $9. And they were strangers who didn't talk to each other the rest of the time, so I think they meant it. Also, entertainment: they had a movie on the pop-down screens, and 4 free movies to stream to your device using on-board Wifi, as well as 2 TV shows. So maybe I'm being harsh. But it was a transcontinental flight and they didn't have headrest screens loaded with movies. Is this only for international flights? The movies were bad, or at least not appealing to me ('Keanu' and 'Zoolander 2'). It was possible to pay for additional movies, but who wants to do that? It was sort of the EasyJet model, where you get good basic service but pay for everything additional that one gets for free on Delta. Maybe that was reflected in the price I paid for the ticket, but I was expecting that AA would be in the same league as United and Delta. One nice perk: free wifi for T-Mobile customers, including me."
Pros: "The gate crew in Roanoke were professional and helpful. The next day's flight was on time and uneventful."
Cons: "The flight attendant was unfriendly at boarding. He did not say or play any pre-flight safety announcements. We were told the flight might have to refuel in Richmond due to major weather delays in LGA. When we were landing they said they expected a refuel and a quick turnaround in Richmond. On the plane after landing, I learned via my phone's internet the flight was cancelled. They never announced it on the plane. At the final moment before we disembarked, the crew told us to be sure to take our belongings. When we landed, Flightaware showed delays of 45 minutes at LGA. AA never took responsibility for the problem though the gate crew mentioned they canceled the flight because the crew was going to be over their maximum hours. AA really couldn't plan to allow for up to an hour delay? I feel disrespected and even deceived. Although it was clear that flight attendant really needed to get off that plane. At the gate, we were told there were no available flights to NYC and were stranded overnight in Richmond. AA did offer a hotel pretending it was a courtesy since they claimed the problem was weather related and not theirs. We chose to stay with relatives and were told AA could only provide transportation from the airport which we did not need. We often have problems and cancellations on this route from when it was branded a US Air route to the present, but this was egregious."
Pros: "Crew was very professional and courteous. Our plane landed early which is a plus"
Cons: "I didn't like the fact some of the seats appeared to be dirty , I sat on a book."
Pros: "Very professional and friendly."
Cons: "N/A"
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: "The pilots did not show up for my flight after my other connecting flight was delayed and a previous fkight had been cancelled."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for approximately 3 hours for mechanical problems."
Pros: "Fast wi fi and decent selection of in flight stuff on devices. Landed early!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Cons: "I was sitting two rows from the bathroom and the entire time the bathroom reeked of urine. It was unbearable."
Pros: "Nothing really- we were on the tarmac for an hour for a flight that was 46 minutes!"
Cons: "An on time departure- and a better / bigger aircraft."
Cons: "I had a very large man in the middle seat next to me. I was in the window seat. He leaked over into my seat which made it very uncomfortable especially when he fell asleep. I know the airlines can't do anything about this but he should pay for a larger seat."
Pros: "Did not really like it."
Cons: "More communication from the boarding staff. The delays kept increasing. Due to weather, we were delayed 4 hrs. They only decided to accommodate everyone with water and snacks 3 hrs into the delay."
Pros: "Pilot spoke with confidence and crew handled delay will"
Cons: "options for new rider poor"
Pros: "We landed in NYC -- although it was first announced as Dulles."
Cons: "This flight was on Canadian Air under the auspices of United. I was not allowed into the United Club lounge despite the fact that I had business class ticket. I was informed that a business class ticket isn't sufficient for using the lounge when flying domestic. It is only good when flying international. They call that customer service. I generally avoid domestic airlines because of the customer service. The flight attendants were not happy to serve you. It's a small flight but they didn't even offer a snack -- you had to ask for it. And then they brought over a small basket with nuts, chips, candy bars, and a muffin. I took a muffin and it stuck to the roof of my mouth -- very poor quality. When I asked for a snack the flight attendant replied cocktail or soft drink never saying whether or not a snack was available.. She said this a couple of times before I could repeat that I wanted a snack to which she replied you want something to drink with that. I've been on many short flights in Asia and they will deliver a full meal and you don't have to ask for it. There was no entertainment but United did send an email explaining how I could purchase entertainment to play on my own device."
Cons: "We were forced to use another airline and we landed in NYC about 5 hours later."
Pros: "The flight time was short"
Cons: "Cabin crew seemed cold and distracted I was done of the last to board because I came off a connecting flight. And I was made to check my carry-on at the gate, however when I boarded the plane I saw plenty of overhead room. The carry-on bag that I had to check was scoffed."
Pros: "Nothing. I didn't take the flight."
Cons: "They didn't get me to New York. Our original aircraft was stolen to use for another flight. So we needed to wait for another plane that wasn't due until 90 minutes after our scheduled departure. This second plane had maintainence issues. After 4 hours waiting I got on a Delta flight."
Pros: "I liked that I got to my destination safely"
Cons: "You offer WiFi that doesn’t work and expect coustomers to pay for movies but don’t have headphones for sale. The flight attendants on both flights were rude"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Pilot admitted error. They did not even know what was going on. 3 hours late due to last min maintenance after the plane had been on the ground since last night. No supervisor came even though we asked the captain to contact one. We were ignored. Total clusterfuck. Pilot was courteous and professional but front desk was Frazzled and incompetent. We were hugely inconvenienced and missed our obligations with no offer of compensation. Then when we finally get on the plane they kick us off!!!!!!!!!! Now they are saying a 630 departure for a 2 pm flight. This is beyond acceptable and I am about to call the local news and am sending them video of your gross incompetence. I want to be contacted at 815-527-1935 immediately. My time is valuable and no part of this delay is acceptable. I want full flight vouchers for this debacle"
Pros: "On time departure and arrival"
Cons: "You better get rid of basic economy."
Pros: "The crew The entertainment options The power options The drinks"
Cons: "10 minutes earlier and the food would have been better. Then again, 10 minutes earlier and wouldn’t have made flight."
Cons: "NA"
Pros: "I liked that they thought that tic tacs is a solution to a 14 hour delay. Screw you, United."
Cons: "Since I missed this connecting flight by 8 hours, the best united could guarantee was a flight 2 DAYS LATER. I had to sleep at the airport. No food vouchers, no compensation. Waited in Uniteds line for 3 hours just to talk to someone. They lost my luggage which I had PAID to check; it was sent to the wrong airport. They guanteed luggage delivery by Thursday night. It arrived Saturday morning at 3am."
Pros: "Despite delay, flight arrived at gate on time."
Cons: "Insufficient meals available for the passengers. Flight time was moved back twice and then up. It can really cause problems for people when departure times are moved up. In flight programs were good but no headphones provided. Good thing we brought some!"
Pros: "Seats"
Cons: "Very narrow seats"
Pros: "Shuttle helped me get to where I needed to go which was great because I am disabled. Flight attendants were nice."
Cons: "Didn't put my bag on the conveyor right and instead of being explicit as to what was wrong, the TSA officer just kept yelling at me I was doing things wrong and I was holding everything up. Could have been so much more pleasant. Also give wrong data a couple of times but got through it ok."
Cons: "Both flights were delayed, and was charged a $200 oversized baggage fee for a bag that actually isn't oversized according to the measurements on the United website"
Pros: "Seat was ok in stiffness and padding"
Cons: "Don't like sitting with my knees propped on the seat in front of me when I'm only 6' tall. feel like you could give a touch of extra legroom for times like when you want something out of your bag crammed below the seat and you have to jar your neck sideways to reach it and try not to be in your neighbors lap while doing it."
Pros: "We had a four hour delay. Absolutely no reason given. Even the the guys at the counter admitted they didn't know why the plane was delayed. And best yet, neither did the pilot. Customer service was great at the airport. But the airline itself was pathetic."
Cons: "We had a four hour delay. Absolutely no reason given. Even the the guys at the counter admitted they didn't know why the plane was delayed. And best yet, neither did the pilot. Customer service was great at the airport. But the airline itself was pathetic."
Cons: "economy seats so small. also can't even access flight maps if you don't buy the directv package."
Pros: "Nice comfortable seating. Fell straight to sleep"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Fast boarding, smooth flight, almost on time landing despite light snow in NY, flight was not full which was a big plus, there was enough room in overhead bins thanks to fewer passengers on board, bigger than average built in seats monitors"
Cons: "Direct TV too expensive, no other entertainment option"
Cons: "The air hostess were horrible!! It felt like they didn't know what they were doing. We sat for hours. I had a messages that the fight was delayed before they announced it. The first gate cancellation was never announced. New passengers boarded and it was a free for all . Those passengers lied about seating and pushed their way on. We believed them until one said that United offered them an earlier flight and choice of seating."
Pros: "I like that after my 1st flight was cancelled, they booked me on another flight that is so delayed I'm still waiting at the airport!"
Cons: "I'm still waiting at the airport"
Pros: "The seats were much more comfortable than the regional jet and I was able to get some rest."
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "The comfy seats"
Cons: "The fact that I had to pay to watch tv. Maybe people should have to pay for movies, but not for watching tv. Flights and till we takeoff can take a while. It would be nice to have some free entertainment. The plane was very hot when we were boarding."
Pros: "Captain personally kept us updated on the situation concerning the delay due to mechanical problems"
Cons: "Reassurance about what would happen if a replacement aircraft could not be found should be provided up front."
Pros: "the crew was very kind and helpful. Love the inflight entertainment"
Cons: "They were running about a hour late but they gave us free tv entertainment to pass the time."
Pros: "Comfortable seats and lots of leg room. I was not crowded at all. It was so nice to not feel cramped and to have plenty of room around me. It was one of the most comfortable flights I have experienced in years!"
Cons: "The flight attendants were disrespectful to not only me but to other passengers. They were not attentive! The plane was dirty."
Cons: "UAL announced one hour delay due to no plane availability which I could understand after an early day thunderstorm. But shortly after, I received a text from Kayak.com (booking) announcing delay moved to 30 mins and boarding had started. Thank goodness for Kayak.com"
Cons: "I spent 4 hours waiting for a connecting flight the scheduled wait was 45 min"
Cons: "The only snack available was a mix that had dairy. Other airlines, like JetBlue not only have a selection from which to choose, but at least one option is vegan."
Cons: "Bad"
Pros: "It was also 2 hours late."
Cons: "The crew was very rude and argued with me for not saying thank you to him after he gave me water. I had actually said Thank you but he didn't hear it. I don't mind saying it again."
Cons: "Some inspector idiot decided that the exterior cover stickers weren't "up to code" literally half an hour before my flight, delaying us 2 hours. I got onto a different flight at the last second, then the same thing happened to that plane. Brilliant on their parts. I almost lost a job interview thanks to your people."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Wobbly takeoff from Denver, then an aborted landing at LGA, I won't be flying United again anytime soon."
Pros: "Comfy environment, not completely booked plane"
Cons: "The price for one little bottle of Rum, highway robbery I say."
Pros: "Quick, pleasant, & timely"
Cons: "Flight attendant asked if my boyfriend was my son, then went from son to husband to friend. I told her boyfriend. We are 2 years apart in age. Flight attendant was pleasant but she should have just kept her mouth shut if she was unsure. Our relationship status is none of her business. She meant well & is pleasant bur I was on call before & did look tired. Asking if my boyfriend was my son did not help the situation."
Cons: "There was confusion on where to go check luggage and what duty free items could be carried on board."
Pros: "The flight was short"
Cons: "The flight was short so no entertainment was needed. After the nightmarish flight I had just endured it felt like first class accommodations."
Pros: "Price"
Cons: "United changed my flight 3 times, due to "traffic control", then I almost missed my flight altogether because the last update they sent me was incorrect. Luckily I showed up to the check in desk early, or what I thought was early, they were at final boarding and almost didn't let me on the flight. The crew was helpful but indignate. Flight 1968, no Bueno."
Pros: "I got stuck in security but the United staff waited for me to board. I am grateful they went the extra mile because I chose to fly that day in order to make it to an important event."
Cons: "When i originally boarded the flight i notices that the person next to me was an obese person that was taking over half of my seat when i went to the flight attendant and informed her she said she might not be able to do anything cause the flight was full. When door was about to close i noticed an empty seat and took. The thing that upset me is if there not been an empty seat i would have had to seat in a seat where there was no space and still would have paid the same as a person that is taking part of my seat and the flight attendant didbt even seem to care."

I was in the airport since 6:00 am for my flight at 7:00am the plane kept getting delayed reasons I do not know. We finally pulled off at 3:45 pm and landed at 7:00 pm. I took a early flight so I can make it to work I missed an hole day of work because of so many delays.

I get late to my meeting cuz the fly was one hour late

Pros: "Smooth boarding process"
Cons: "Flight was delayed, flight crew were not able to set boundaries with other passengers who would get up and delay the take off"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable and good amount of leg room"
Cons: "No fault"
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "There was nothing on the plane but seats"
Pros: "Clean plane. Friendly service."
Cons: "Flight was delayed . Baggage took forever to reach carousel"
Cons: "Had to pay $40 for carry on and 17 pp for seat assignmnent then didn’t have the seats chosen. They charge for softdrinks and no free snack. Flight arrived 3 hours late (weather) ... seats don’t recline - no entertainment at all and tray table couldn’t support a styrofoam takeout nor a laptop"
Cons: "if you have a hard engagement that you have to make, i hate to say it, but use a bigger airline. These guys are not dependable nyc -> miami. Have had 2 flights cancelled and delayed over 6 hours in the last 6 months. Only one scheduled flight everyday. If you can risk it, fine, but otherwise not worth it."
Pros: "Crew was always nice, plane was clean. Appreciated the 50 dollar voucher I was given from my previous delayed frontier flight (LGA to CVG) - it was nice to receive it without having to ask."
Cons: "Seats don't recline, everything is an extra charge (was not notified that selecting a seat or having a carry on was an extra charge when I booked via Kayak, added 100 dollars total to my round trip - misleading), no tvs."
Pros: "Flight crew was amazing, they really work hard to make up for the bare bones no frills flight."
Cons: "$45 for a carry on? Seats are like folding chairs. They don't even recline. $3 for a bottle of water? on a 4 hour flight, no snacks, beverages and a barely padded metal chair that doesnt even recline? For a short hop it would be ok. For a trip cross country. NO WAY!"
Pros: "Plane did not crash. Thankful that the water was free and there was no charge for cabin pressurization."
Cons: "Steerage accomodations deceptively marketed. Was on a Delta flight 2 days earlier (at a lower price). Couldn't believe yours was the same model plane, Congratulations on having designed the most mean SPIRiTED seat in the airline industry - deliberately less undersest storage and no cushioning or reclining so you can pack in like sardines, only to find on ticket checkout that I would have to add a special premium because the right to sit is not included in my ticket price. By the time I discovered I'd be paying for my cup of coffee, I wasn't even surprised. I, and the two travelers I met sharing my row, were first and last time customers,"
Pros: "Smooth boarding and deplaning. Very pleasant crew."
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable"
Pros: "Cheap flight"
Cons: "Poor service; carry on bag you had to buy; email saying that we had to show up 2+ hours before the flight, which meant I had to be at airport at 3:30 AM, for a 6:30 AM domestic flight; arrive 1 hr late into NY; misleading marketing about costs of flight"
Pros: "The flight was faster than expected which was very nice. Was a smooth ride for the most part."
Cons: "Baggage takes way longer than other airlines I've experienced to pick up from claim. Wish their were free snacks available on board."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Poor service, huge delay, dirty plane, I don't know why I give them another chance. Every time I fly with them it's horrible."
Pros: "Hated the entire experience!"
Cons: "Flying with Frontier had to be one of the most traumatic experiences of my life. I arrived at the airport to find that they could not check me in when in fact my original Atlanta to New York plane had not left. The agent lied and made it seem like the plane left so I purchased a $99 ticket to Atlanta to Trenton, NJ, a local airport that was 1 hour and 46 minutes away from New York. I purchased the ticket and went to the LGA gate just in case and called the 801 number to be rebooked back on my original flight. The rep on the phone shared I would not be charged the $99 but today, 1/6/17 the charge posted on my credit card. I had to go to Trenton, NJ, send $33 for the NJ Transit, plus 2 Uber rides totaling $53."
Pros: "It wasn't over sold or a full flight and there wasn't time wasted boarding."
Cons: "Baggage fees and we hit turbulence during take off and the pilot never made an announcement. It was stormy in ATL so you'd like to be warned. The flight attendant eventually made an announcement after there were screams as the plane dipped suddenly creating a roller coaster drop effect. Also the seats were impossible to get comfortable in, the arm rests too small and they didn't go up so although no one was next to me I was trapped in my seat. Also because I was in an exit row it didn't recline. Oh and the reading lights are aggressive. I wish I'd packed an eye mask to block out that light and the light from the exit sign. Thankfully it was a short flight. The airfare is cheap but after you pay all the fees you might as well book on a more comfortable airline."
Cons: "frontier was awful. they pushed our flight out of new york back three times and then canceled in the middle of the night, saying they didn't have partnerships with other airlines so couldn't get us out until the 25th (the day before our return flight). we talked to both customer service on the phone (20 minute wait to get someone) and gate agents and EVERYONE said they weren't authorized to give us a refund for any of the inconvenience and unanticipated expenses. ultimately we ended up flying out of philly (paying for our own bus tickets) on AMERICAN (paying for another flight with our own money) to get to our family in denver. on the way back they weren't going to let us check luggage for free, again saying no one was authorized to do that until thankfully they discovered a note from the manager we spoke to in nyc. otherwise they would not have given it to us even after we spoke to the manager in denver. we boarded our return flight to find that we couldn't sit down as someone had vomited (not frontier's fault), and that was the cherry on top. we just burst out laughing because the whole thing was a disaster. we ended up spending the same amount as our "inexpensive" frontier tickets and more on fixing the trip ourselves because they wouldn't help us at all. truly a terrible experience and i don't anticipate flying frontier again."
Pros: "The flight was on time."
Cons: "Bait and switching pricing - awful. You have to pay for your seat - literally, along with your carry on bag. Cannot even get water on the flight - all beverages are charged. Gate staff tried to charge me an additional $50 for an 'extra length' seat, even after I explained to him that I had already paid for the 'perks' benefit and showed him my receipt and boarding pass. He insisted and I finally logged on to my phone and upgraded my boarding pass myself in his presence! All he said was, "wow. you made out." Awful awful. The best (worst)? They actually checked in and boarded a customer with a Delta boarding pass (it was crumpled, the gal was young and was just trying to make her flight, she was a bit confused.) THEY DID NOT SCAN THE BOARDING PASS!!!!! She boarded the plane and of course no seat for her. More confusion as she now had to get off and make her way to the Delta terminal, resulting in her missing her flight. It was the same brilliant gate clerk who I dealt with earlier. Frontier admins will hear about this as this breach of protocol was a serious security issue. Will never, ever, fly Frontier again."
Cons: "Round trip flights were delayed and many other frontier flights also had delays."
Pros: "I was assigned to zone 1, so boarding the plane was quick and easy."
Cons: "There were a ton of hidden fees that I didn't expect. They don't even allow a free carry-on, which is unheard of. There were no refreshments or snacks offered. I would expect at least a cup of water to be complimentary. Overall, Fronteir should consider including more perks for the comfort of their customers."
Pros: "I like that Boarding On time."
Cons: "I paid $35 for my carry on bag. And even can't find the space to put it on the cabinet above my seat. Flight attendant just tell me to look for another space. They never help me anything. It took me a while to find the one far away from where I was seated. One of male flight attendant opened the cabinet above my head, maybe grab his stuff but one bottle of water fell down. It almost hit my head and luckily it just touched my shoulder. It was my horrible experience. I picked this flight because it fits my schedule. Next trip I will never take it any more."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "I had to pay separately for my seat after purchasing my flight as well as having to pay for a carry on bag separately... don't try to make me pay for stuff I need like that!"
Cons: "All of the self check-in kiosks were down. Only two people were working the desks. The check-in line was out the door and it took hours to see a representative. Then, the barcode Frontier provided on the boarding pass did not scan with the TSA. I was denied access to screening and sent back up to Frontier's desks. If it wasn't for the generosity of several people in the line, I would have had to wait another several hours before seeing an agent. The inexpensive ticket is not worth it, especially considering one must pay for a carry on. Absolutely the worst experience I've ever had flying."
Pros: "Check in every thing was smooth. Your staff is very hospitable."
Cons: "My original flight was cancelled due to the strom. I rebooked for the Sunday because i was told you were rescheduling for Sunday flights only. I would have preferred to reschedule for Saturday but wasn't allowed. To my surprise you had flights Friday snd Saturday after the storm passed which were already full. I missed events i already paid for which i was upset. I felt i should have been notified about the open flights and given an option to reschedule with no penalty."
Pros: "Nothing! I was just happy we had a safe flight."
Cons: "This was my first and last time ever I would flight with this airline! I don't know where to begin! from the rude receptionist at the counter telling me "I'm just following the rules..." to the uncomfortable seat that don't recline. my ticket cost me almost $500 to Denver, that should cost half! because the airline, forced a hidden fee of $40 for a carry on -both ways $80- ! and to top that, it was an uncomfortable ride, seats don't recline, and they had no Entertainment screen, no food, and rude service."
Pros: "The flight crew was alright."
Cons: "Did not like that everytime I fly the flight is delayed, usually by a lot."
Pros: "Plane didn't crash."
Cons: "Horrible from start to finish. Difficulty getting boarding pass from Kiosk. Constant gate shifting – four times with an 1.5 hr delay – ensures you can't wait comfortably for flight. Very poor communication. Had not expected a full-price fair ($250 one-way) to include zero amenities. Seats, that you pay extra for, do not recline. Counter staff appears to be trained to hassle and hustle customers rather than provide service. Flight staff was rude and irritable and rebuffed any attempt at friendliness."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Outgoing flight was delayed by 18 hours. Cancelled my inbound flight and purchased a last minute flight with another airline and still haven't received a refund."
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."
Pros: "Flight was delayed 3 hours, then flat out canceled at the last minute. The next available flight they offered to put me on was 4 days later. I am not a high maintenance traveler, but I was downright appealed. Frontier refused to provide any coverage or even vouchers for hotels. Worst flying experience of my life."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats; ruined handle on luggage;"
Cons: "We missed out flight because Frontier originally delayed the flight 45 minutes, only to take off on time, with no announcement or update to the flight status online. We went to the gate 15 minutes after the original departure time to be told it had already taken off. We checked the status of the flight multiple times online to avoid this very thing and the online status never changed. When we went to the Frontier desk to re-book on another flight, the attendant told us she could get us to New Orleans (we were going to New York) - NOT HELPFUL. We ended up booking another flight on Delta to get us home."
Pros: "The pilot was nice and the plane was very clean."
Cons: "One flight attendant was yelling all over the plane instead of politely walking up to guests and informing them that the overhead baggage holders were full. Also, there seem to be a mix up with seating as before the plane doors closed, this same flight attendant allowed a guest to move to another seat, only for the ticket attendant to walk back on the plane and inform the flight attendant that she needed those seats. I usually fly with Delta, American Airlines, and in my 30 years of traveling have I not seen such unprofessionalism with regards to miscounted seats and the way the flight attendant handled those customers."
Pros: "Efficient"
Cons: "The Southwest-style pay for everything model, except that the base price of the ticket was fairly expensive. So I felt like I was being nickled and dimed and ripped off. Seats were horribly uncomforatble. Tray tables that hardly count as a table (my brought onboard meal wouldn't fit on it) and lack of any entertainment all made me feel like I was traveling in the cargo hold."
Pros: "the low initial fare"
Cons: "leg space non existent tray table too small, can fit a lunch box carry on policy - there's no carry on allowed"
Pros: "Boarding was great, nice & smooth"
Cons: "There were two of the most loud & disruptive children on board traveling with a mother who had no interest in trying to calm them down or separate them. They were old enough to know how to behave and this all started well before the cabin doors closed - they LITERALLY drew blood from one another. Why did the crew leave it to other passengers to have to say something? If they had been drunk & belligerent adults they would have been removed but because they were belligerent children everyone looked the other way. It made for a completely miserable experience like none other I've ever experienced on any airline."
Pros: "I didn't like anything."
Cons: "The flight attendance wouldn't sell me water or give me water when I asked for it on the plane. This was before the plan was descending, so he literally had no excuse. She didn't even have the common courtesy to come to me and say she wasn't going to give me any water. We had to ask her why she didn't provide water even when she had a water bottle in her hand. I will never fly with Frontier again. Also they try and trick you with cheap airline tickets initially, but then charge you $40 for 1 checked bag each way and you don't get any perks! Not even water. This was terrible."
Pros: "Nothing really."
Cons: "They made me pay 60 dollars for a carry on at the gate, they were also very unorganized. There was no flexiblity. Staff was ok on the aircraft."
Pros: "The seats remind me of wooden school house chairs - narrow, hard (no padding) and don't recline. Fly another airline. By the time your done paying all the gotcha fees you didn't save any money flying this economic airline."
Cons: "Bare bones as it gets. There is zero entertainment - no tv, no wifi, ect. Seats are the cheapest I've ever seen in the travel industry. All the passengers were hunched forward because the seats were so uncomfortable. The trays are wide enough to hold two drinks. The trays can't hold a laptop or a magazine. Water is free which is one upgrade which is better than spirit. However, spirit had cushioned seats that recline."
Pros: "Price real good if I hadn't been change $60 for luggage"
Cons: "Extra money for luggage tried to charge for carry on bag coming from NY $40rxtrs amt was more than Delta or Southwest plus flight return too late spent day in NY no one at baggage check-in at 10:45 had to wait until 2or3:00pm"
Pros: "Nothing! Besides one lady that was nice."
Cons: "Everything! They charged me $60 for my carry on bag, didn't have free peanuts or water, and was very uncomfortable!!!"
Pros: "I need and want a refund."
Cons: "Barbara, the manager at Hartfield/Jackson in Atlanta is very rude and has no compassion or interest in customer service."
Cons: "My girlfriend and I struck up a conversation with a woman sitting next to us in our row about an hour into the flight. About 10 minutes after that we notice the woman in front of us is glaring at us, writhing around in histrionics, holding her ears, cursing to her husband and basically making every passenger around her look at each other wondering "what is going on with this woman"? Finally this woman turns around and is staring at us. I ask her if there is a problem, and she replies "yeah. There is. You're saying "like" too much. Can you just shut up?". Wrong thing to say to me. I called her a few choice words which I won't repeat, then her husband gets his tough guy act going, by this time everyone around our seats are uncomfortable at the rising confrontation. The flight crew come over and try to move them, but they refuse to move. My girlfriend and I end up moving our seats to avoid the flight being diverted and ruining everyone else's plans. For the last hour of the trip we sat seperately in the back of the plane. Once I moved I was speaking to an older couple next to me about their plans, showing a visiting family the features of the New York skyline as we landed and giving them advice on traveling in NYC, so apparently my voice didn't cause anyone else who wasn't either drunk or crazy to begin an argument with me. I know the issue has nothing to do with kayak or the airline, just a maladjusted few people that can't be in public, but that was hands down the worst flight I have ever had."
Pros: "This flight was horrible from start to finish. This was a flight from Miami to New York, scheduled to depart at 2:25 and arrive at 5:25. Around 1:30 we were told we'd be departing at 3:30 instead due to "weather at LaGuardia." I'd like to point out that countless friends and family, and also every weather app known to man, assured me there was absolutely no bad weather in the New York area and in fact there wasn't supposed to be until that evening, when there was a chance of thunderstorms. So if anything, delaying the flight only increased our chances of running into said bad weather. In any event, we boarded at 3pm and then around 3:30 were told we'd now be delayed again, probably departing around 4pm. So we sat on the runway like idiots. We did leave shortly after 4pm, and then once we got to the LaGuardia area about two hour later, we were told we needed to refuel (????) so we were being rerouted to Raleigh. About 40 minutes later we were told there was a storm in Raleigh so actually we would be going to Newport News. This is absolutely no joke, but the flight crew nor the pilot knew which state Newport News was in and upon arriving they announced we were in Virginia and said they knew that thanks to a Google search. Keep in mind it was now about 8pm and we had all been prepared for a short flight that would arrive hours ago, so everyone was beginning to get really hungry and irritable. This is where the flight crew started to really, thoroughly suck. In addition to being completely rude to anyone who tried to ask if we could get some more information, they were CHARGING people for water and offering nothing in the way of food. Only after a passenger begged did they dole out granola bars and cups half-filled with water around 9pm. Also, this entire time we weren't able to leave the aircraft and this was when the bathrooms decided to go out, and they were out of commission for about 30 minutes, so that was fun. We finally got into the air around 10pm and landed in LaGuardia by 10:50. Also, just a note, but when we took off in Newport News the weather had turned and there was heavy rain and lightning. We had no issue taking off during the storm, but apparently the storm was the reason for the initial delay? Whatever. Anyway we finally landed in LGA after being on that plane for 7+ hours. Then, just when we thought it was over, we were told there wasn't a gate open and we would need to sit on the plane and remain on the runway for about 30 minutes. 30 minutes was actually more like 45, so around 11:30 we finally, FINALLY could get off and I have never seen passengers de-board a plane so quickly. Overall this was one of the worst experiences ever, and while I try and be understanding when it comes to delays, what really put this over the edge was 1) the lack of reasoning for the delays and 2) the incompetency and rudeness of the crew. They made no one feel safe or comfortable. This was the absolute worst."
Cons: "Everything. I genuinely can't think of one plus, aside from the comraderie of the passengers."
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that this airline is suppose to be the affordable airline and I actually spent more on this flight than my Delta flight and I got less out of it. There was no wifi available, if I wanted a drink or snack I had to pay for it and the seats weren't as comfortable as well as no power outlets available. I also had to pay for my carry on. I will no longer fly frontier. I do have to say the staff we very kind and professional."
Pros: "I like that the plane didn't crash. Other than that Frontier's service, from paying for your carry on and beverages and the ticket agents to the flight attendants was, I imagine, worse than a greyhound bus ride. I was able to download the frontier app and get my boarding pass, and make the flight (drenched in sweat from running through the airport) as they were closing the boarding door. Thank god for cardio and determination."
Cons: "There were five ticket agents at the counter when I got to the counter (an hour before my flight). All five of them were helping one person and talking to each other for about 10 minutes. Then one split off to help the next person in line - or just to get a laugh by telling the couple they weren't make their flight and they weren't going to drop anymore bags to the plane because we were close to the 45 minute cutoff before the departure time. Perhaps if they had been working as a team rather than a gang the whole lot of us would have been checked in on time. When I got on the plane (after asking folks in security if I could get in front of them and running like a madman through the terminal) the flight attendant was the pinnacle of passive aggressive annoyance. This was my first and probably last ticket I buy flying frontier."
Pros: "I liked that i made it to my destination."
Cons: "I do not like that the website does not clearly state that a backpack is a personal item. But here is the con, they say pay now for the bag or pay more at the airport! So of course you pay. On my return and upon picking up my boarding ticket i asked about my backpack and she told me it was a personal item and that it is free. She handed me a ready made slip of paper to call for a refund and said she would make a note in the system to this effect. When i called for my $80 refund i was told well the note in the system only mentioned your return flight so we will only return for that flight. Ok..ok. You see where im going with this. This is a class action lawsuit in the making."
Pros: "The flight was better than the flight going to Atlanta because the plain was newer and had better seats. The flight crew was great going and coming back."
Pros: "Great for traveling short distances. Got in and out very quickly. Very smooth take off and landing on the way back. We also got to be seated in the emergency exits, so we had much more space."
Cons: "Very small and cramped seating. Not for someone who is bigger. You have to pay for everything, but you don't need anything if you're only flying an hour and half."
