Airline reviews

Pros: "Flight crew was ok and boarding was really quick"
Cons: "Terminal 2 security at LAX is awful and inefficient Also plane had a malfunctioning switch and it took them 1.5 hrs to fix while we are on the plane. This was 1.5 hrs delay on a 58 minutes flight. :("

Pros: "Crew, chairs, entertainment"
Cons: "Communication"

Cons: "Got a stiff neck cause the seat would not go back. Makes it difficult to see the entertainment with my progressive lenses"

Pros: "Short and easy"

Pros: "Great"
Cons: "Great"

Pros: "Super friendly flight crew."

Pros: "Boarding was on time and the process was efficient."
Cons: "The flight attendant could not serve coffee or tea due to "no potable water" onboard! The electric outlets at each of our first class seats were not functional, both the USB ports and the electric plugs did not work so we were not able to charge our phones during the flight. When I mentioned this to the flight attendant her response was that she had not received a report that the electric was not working. No other assistance was offered. There was very little legroom even though these were sold as first class seats. The plane was old and dirty, the armrests were sticky."

Pros: "Great service by crew!"
Cons: "Took too long to get on board."

Pros: "The flight was delayed by 50 minutes and then they underestimated the time to de-ice."

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."

Cons: "."

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

Pros: "Got an upgrade to econ comfort"
Cons: "WIFI wasn’t working. USB charging port wasn’t working either"

Cons: "The crew was late so we were delayed two hours. I find that extremely infuriating when you are a passenger and have to show up two hours before your flight. I also would lose my job if I was two hours late for a client."

Cons: "My flight got delayed for twelve hours with no compensation for a hotel."

Pros: "customer siervice was great and welcoming was awesome"

Pros: "Excellent Detroit crew"

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

Pros: "On time departure; good updates by flight deck; luggage arrived unscathed."
Cons: "Once beverage service was complete, flight attendants retreated to the back of the plane. On a 4-hour flight, it would have been nice to have someone come by and ask if we needed anything, such as water, coffee, or juice. Granola bar was good."

Pros: "Crew was very nice, boarding went smooth and flight was on time... No complaints!"

Cons: "It was freezing cold on that flight. Cold air from side panels above the windows was blasting in our faces."

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"

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

Cons: "Late"

Pros: "Fast boarding, everyone nice."
Cons: "Wifi was yo and down the whole flight, about 20 times, so kids were not entertained."

Pros: "we got on another air conditioned plane"
Cons: "We initially were put on a plane with defective air conditioning.... it took 90 minutes to finally decide to put us on another plane. The older planes have hardly any room under the seat in the isle seats."

Pros: "The flight attendants were very friendly"

Pros: "Crew was fantastic! Everything was satifactory and as expected."
Cons: "Flight was delayed from leaving the gate due to a fuel manifest needing to be signed. My baggage was really mauled ( by TSA or by Delta baggage handlers, I don't know). One zipper on a compartment was totally torn off. Another zipper was missing its pull and was difficult to open."

Pros: "EZ play newer plane nice staff"
Cons: "Power plugs did not work in seating row and air vents did not work"

Pros: "Great staff, quick service."

Pros: "Perfect"

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

Pros: "I got home."
Cons: "Staff is ticketing were unhelpful in straightening out Boarding process. I ask for help and the agent came over and read the computer screen to me as if that was all he was there for."

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."

Pros: "Just to clean the cabin a bit more and the folding table tops. thanks!"

Cons: "The fact that seats could not be reserved ahead of time. Having them assigned at the gate is illogical and does not reward the passengers who reserve / check ahead of time. Additionally, it creates unnecessary rush at the gate."

Pros: "Efficient, comfortable, on time"

Pros: "Service."
Cons: "Boarding. Was late because 1- airplane arrive about 10 minutes late and 2-have to wait passengers coming from Orlando."

Pros: "Friendly and helpful crew. Drinks and snacks were nice and were given in larger portions than some other airlines I've flown."
Cons: "The seats were not comfortable. I was in general boarding but I was still disappointed with the seats. Hard to stay comfortable during a 3 hour flight. Cabin temperature was a bit cool for my liking."

Pros: "Row to myself"

Pros: "great"

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: "We were late leaving and missed our very tight connection at JFK. When we went to an agent we found we had been already rebooked on another flight through Detroit arriving 2.5 hours later than original. Our luggage was also rerouted to follow our flights and was there in Phoenix!"
Cons: "45 minutes is too tight a connection in JFK when you have to change terminals even if the flight were on time!"

Pros: "Very funny, added comedy to the flight. Great!"

Pros: "Aisle seat; leaving on time"
Cons: "Sat next to family with 3 small children; kids and parents did very well. Wished Delta could have arrange for family to have 3 seats together. Would have been family friendly."

Pros: "Prompt boarding and good directions from the crew"
Cons: "AA cancelled the Dallas flight before this one so they could fill up our flight. This does not seem very considerate of our health during a Pandemic especially with their messaging about social distancing. They also did a very poor job of keeping people patient in the deplaning process. They should have better messaging and a very non threatening way of encouraging passengers to be patient and courteous. Maybe they good offer each passenger a choice some type of goodie like a mint or a chocolate that says "please enjoy this while you wait for others to exit the plane"."

Pros: "Great crew."
Cons: "I would like the formal return of beverages and snacks. I understand the lack thereof is due to the virus. I think the airlines are doing a good job of staying within safety recommendations."

Pros: "Everything is good"

Pros: "Whole row to myself. Greqt movie, in early and informative pro of a captain."

Pros: "Crew members were all very pleasant and personable. A very special experience with the local ticket agent / boarding agent (double duty) in Guadalajara: Maria Hernandez (or perhaps Fernandez) who was pleasant, professional, helpful and even called us respectfully by name ("Mr. and Mrs. Petrusek") She is an outstanding representative of American Airlines! Gracias to her!!"
Cons: "Not a thing! We live in Mexico and we usually fly Volaris...I think AA just became our favorite airline!"

Pros: "Plenty of drink passes."
Cons: "The staff was rude. Over heard gossiping about other travelers. At end of flight overhead announcement that our section of airplane using wrong bathrooms. It was rudely stated. Should have directed this instruction earlier in the flight. Very rude"

Pros: "The crew was attentive and helpful."
Cons: "Our layover was originally supposed to be an hour and a half in Phoenix. As we were boarding the plane from Austin to Phoenix, we got a notification that our layover had been delayed an additional 5 hours due to construction at SFO. I’d have appreciated more of a heads up than as I’m boarding."

Pros: "I didn’t like anything at all"
Cons: "They have to add electronic devices or charge plug on it"

Pros: "Really disappointed as my bags was not check thru.It was rechecked at London and British airway charged me for my baggage. I want to make sure that my way back to Oslo London London San Diego has no charge . It is an international flight and I am allowed 23kg one checked bag ."

Cons: "Took forever to get the bags"

Pros: "Amazing Crew"

Pros: "great trip and crew"

Pros: "Would fly again- irritated at how does a flight manage to get overbooked"
Cons: "Flight was 3 seats overbooked, they had to wait until 3 people willingly took a later flight. Like a game of chicken between 100 people."

Pros: "Friendly staff and helpful"
Cons: "Did not fly out of Ontario, I was being led to fly out of LAX since there was a delay. Ended up flying out of John Wayne Airport."

Pros: "We missed out connecting flight. We landed at 730am our connecting flight was supposed to leave at 750 it actually left at 744am"
Cons: "Our connecting flight left early"

Cons: "I arrived at the airport and had already checked in and had m boarding passes. For some reason they could not find me when I went to check my bag. After 30 minutes they saw that my seat assignment had been changed and that is why my boarding passes that I had printed at home did not match what their computer showed. I booked this reservation in May and had a seat chosen fairly toward the front. I am 73 years old and the closer to the front I can be helps. When I finally got on the plane to my surprise my seat was the very last seat on the plane across from the restroom. People continued to leave the door open after using the restroom so had to get up and continue to close the door or look at the restroom the whole flight. There was never any explanation as to why they did this. As a result, being lst off the plane, I almost missed my connection as I had to go two terminals over for my connection. At my age I cannot run so I arrived as the last people were getting on the plane. I will never fly American Airlines again."

Pros: "great"

Cons: "Bought 2 tickets but seats weren’t together poor service"

Pros: "Despite numerous delays, we made it to Philadelphia. We were alerted to the delays in a timely manner. We were also treated to a snack cart and cupcakes to celebrate the first day of direct flights."
Cons: "A long delay. Patience is everything and the staff and crew were very friendly."

Pros: "Staff and Entertainment"
Cons: "Back row, but someone has to sit there :)"

Cons: "The information that was given was awful. Why would AA send a broken plane to ABW?"

Pros: "Nice people to fly with"
Cons: "nothing"

Cons: "Flight was overbooked"

Cons: "Agent at gate said overhead compartments were all full and no more room for any bag. So I had to check in my carry on luggage . To my surprise, there had many open space when I walked in the plane. The worst thing was my brand new suitcase was torn. I told the luggage agent the incident and she said they had no liability what so ever."

Pros: "AA put us in a hotel and gave $12 (per person) food voucher for missed connection due to delay for maintenance."
Cons: "Our luggage was lost for 2.5 hrs in PHX airport, due to mix-up by service rep at customer service. AA attendant at gate at CLT was extremely rude and unprofessional when I accuse Left my boarding passes in seat pocket. Would not summon someone to retrieve it. Made me wait until entire plane was disembarked and cleaned, and made me wait some more after. She was super snarky, made rude comments, and almost made my family miss our connection to EWN. I will never, ever, fly AA again. Worst customer service and tons of issues with maintenance, luggage handling, and delays."

Pros: "loved having a movie to pass the time. Super friendly attendants."

Cons: "Ct for. R"

Pros: "Great crew!"

Pros: "The staff tried to help as much as possible."
Cons: "I called American Airlines as ssoon as I book my trip to set up and make sure my small dog could fly with me. They neglected to inform me their partner, jetstar, does not fly animals. My luggage did not arrive with me. Both of my suitcases were mangled and broken. Items in my suitcases were shattered and crushed even though they were well packed and protected. We got stuck on the terminal in MSP and missed our connecting flight. When we finally arrived the systems were down and could not get new flights or hotels. We were told we could not get hotels and had to argue for an hour. Even though it was a maintenance issue. I arrived a day late and had to take extra leave. The plane from LAX to Tokyo was horrific. I booked a window seat, was stuck in the very middle. There was no way to charge outlets devices. The screen did not work. And my new luggage was also damaged with even more items destroyed."

Cons: "all flights delayed"

Pros: "Crew was nice including those helping with boarding."
Cons: "Difficult to recline chair. Limited snack options. Landing was a bit rough."

Cons: "This flight was added as they cancelled my flight directly to London then they dropped this flight and had just Phoenix to Lindon! It took many calls, one with over an hour wait, where were told different stories and expectations. I did not receive an actual ticket until the very morning if this flight!! It was very stressful!"

Cons: "Nearly being bumped off the flight. A tight, uncomfortable seating space."

Pros: "It wasn't as terrible as the 1st leg of the return flight"
Cons: "Bad enough the long part of my trip ove seas had no wifi but then the 4 hour domestic flight did not have it either. I had planned to put my flight time to good use and catch up on work so i did not go back to a mountain of work but that never happened. Also, I've never been to an airport where you exit the boarding doors in the terminal then head down stairs to the tarmac to board a bus that make a complete lap of the terminal going near every AA plane obviously trying to figure out which one they need to drop us off at. If can get this close to losing people I now understand how luggage gets lost so often."

Cons: "Ear headphone jack would not turn down, you could hear the show from three seats away and the flight attendant was rude when I asked her for some different headphone to see if it would help. She acted like I was stupid and said "well did you turn it down?" Of course I tried that. I was very taken back by how she acted."

Pros: "The FA was great, she was always checking on us and ensured we were taken care off."
Cons: "The seats were old and didn't recline. The food basket is a joke as it mainly has snacks for mid day or evening flights. Popcorn isn't a breakfast time snack."

Pros: "Quick service. Comfortable seats"

Pros: "The gate attendants were professional and the flight attendants were very good. The flight itself was fine."
Cons: "i had my boarding pass and chose my seat some time ago, in row 4. When I checked in, the AA representative switched my boarding card and I was told that my seat was no longer available. When I got to the gate, I spoke to the gate attendant. There were several people also speaking to them about their seats. I did not have a seat assigned to my boarding pass, so I stood until the entire plane boarded and the gate attendants could sort things out. In the end, I was given a seat at the back of the plane, even though booked my seat some time ago and am a Sapphire member. When I boarded, there was no room for my carry-on luggage. The flight attendant already understood what happened. She immediately took my bag, and found a space at the front of the airplane. This is the second disappointing flight in a row in 2 weeks I have had with AA. I'm not sure if it's just bad luck, or has something to do with the company. I had flown with U.S. Airways for years and never experienced any major issues."

Pros: "Mechanically safe Entertainment monitor and USB charging"
Cons: "Loading up a plane to sit in for >1.5 hrs waiting for a pilot and de-icing rushed service"

Pros: "Nothing. THis airline is the pits. Stay far far away."
Cons: "Everything. Desk agents are rude and unhelpful, airlines break regularly, flights always delayed, baggage always lost, awful."

Pros: "The staff was very helpful and the in-flight movie was great!"
Cons: "A teenager sitting behind me kept putting her feet and knees at the back of my chair making it very uncomfortable for me the entire flight."

Pros: "On time and no issues"
Cons: "Seat comfort"

Pros: "Nice crew, plane was decent"
Cons: "Delayed waiting on a crew person to get to the airport to fly to Dallas. We had to wait an hour at the gate. They didn't tell us what the delay was for until we had been waiting 30m."

Cons: "There was a snow delay in Chicago, but nobody offered assistance when we were on the ground. We felt abandoned by American Airlines because we asked three different people for assistance and they didn't seem to want to take on the problem. They were like Pontius Pilate, and "washed their hands" of us!!!"

Pros: "Good experience."

Pros: "On the way there, it was a newer plane in nicecondition, comfortable, entertainment was ok."
Cons: "AA IOS app - always problems getting the mobile boarding passes. This time is just like every other. Never a problem before with US Air or Southwest Food - There and back, sandwiches and non-snack items were sold out by the time crew could get to the rows in the back Plane on the way back was a certified POS. Seats were ancient and broken, Engine couldn't start - twice, and no entertainment"

Cons: "The scheduled departure time was moved forward, thus creating confusion and inconvenience."

Pros: "Flight left on time and arrived early"

Pros: "The landing in Phoenix finally here!!"
Cons: "The 5 plus hour flight but had to endure to get to Phoenix!!"

Pros: "I don't usually complain, and I have never responded to this kind of rating request, but, the American Airlines flight from Ft. Lauderdale to Phoenix was too inept to ignore. Firstly, I wasn't assigned a seat when I booked the flight. Then, at the time I checked in, as no regularly priced seat was reserved for me, I was forced to pay for a premium seat, for both the outbound and inbound segments. Secondly, no snacks were offered on the outbound flight, because "the ground crew forgot to supply the plane". This didn't bother me, but it did infuriate some of the other passengers. Finally, I paid for the GoGo inflight internet, but the download speed was sooooo slow, I finally gave up."

Pros: "Staff always amazing."
Cons: "Everything was good overall."

Pros: "Nice new interior"

Cons: "Immediately after all passengers were boarded United discovered the plane had to be replaced. We all had to deplane, wait an hour more for a new A320, and reboard. Also irritating that delays are posted at 15 minute intervals and then updated; so you have to keep updating friends & family via WiFi. If it's predicted to be an hour, say so."

Pros: "I was happy to finally receive a drink one the flight started. A waterbottle at the seat and not other service would have been nice. Wifi was not working. The seats were small and cramped. My seat did not stay either up or down...it kept moving around and would not stay adjusted. However the crew was fantastic and our two female pilots were amazing. Captain Amy touched down in Phoenix was one of the smoothest I have ever experienced."

Pros: "I didn't get dragged of a flight due to overbooking. So that is always a positive."
Cons: "United needs to add more entertainment options to all of their flights. Virgin, JetBlue have done this. Why can't United? You have record profits, invest it in inflight experience."

Pros: "Was on time"
Cons: "Felt like herded cattle on flight - very cramped and uncomfortable"

Cons: "seats too small and close together. very bad seating. Would fly United again only if no other flight available."

Cons: "The only thing I didn't like was that my flight was delayed. But hey, it happens. Over all it was great"

Cons: "I have to endure 10+ hours without the chance to purchase on flight wifi"

Pros: "I felt comfortable. Staff was great."
Cons: "The cracker and cheese box. The snack wasn't worth the money."

Pros: "United got me from point A to point B"
Cons: "Crew was rude, not just to me, but to other patrons. Flight was packed going and the man scanning boarding passes spoke to those of us asking simple questions as if we were stupid and defiant. Was he a prison guard in his previous job? On the way to Newark, I had an aisle seat. One of the stewardesses blazed by me with a cart ramming it into my shoulder without so much as a, "sorry." I'm not a big woman but maybe as I dozed off I leaned over a bit...There is no way she didn't feel her cart hit me. Rudeness, it seems is a part of the culture at United because the flight attendants coming back squeezed past the long line for the bathroom without saying, "excuse me." They did however, say, "I need to get by," and one of them brushed by the gentlemen sitting next to me and bumped his laptop and coffee. Overall it seems that the crew working these particular United flights have forgotten that we pay hard earned money to fly. Some of us are going on vacation, to see loved ones, and some are flying to deal with unpleasant circumstances. The staff may fly several times a day, but most passengers do not. There's a lot of prep and anxiety, that goes into taking a flight and a surly flight crew multiplies that anxiety. No one wants to fly with a crew that hates their job."

Pros: "Lufthansa offered complimentary food on their three legs of my journey. Even the two hour flight Munich/ Malta. But United offers nothing. And the seats are way too narrow."
Cons: "Narrow seats. No free meals. No free entertainment."

Pros: "Price was great and flight crew was nice."

Pros: "Smooth flight, slept almost the entire way.."

Pros: "Overall very good. Friendly staff and timely arrival and departure"
Cons: "More leg room (on first flight) and drinks with ice!"

Pros: "The Crew was nice and attentive"
Cons: "Boarding was unpleasant I had to wait so long to be seated because no wheelchair was available then I had to sit in the rear of the plane I'm physically disabled I had no leg room and my knees were in pain the whole flight then after landing I had to wait 20 to 25 minutes to get off the plane I'm still recovering from that but keep the attendance they were the highlight of my experience"

Pros: "On time."

Pros: "Just happy to be home"
Cons: "That I asked to be put on an affiliate airline they didn't offer which was perfect because I was able to get home to get medical attention"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything. United made no apologies."

Pros: "Good crew."
Cons: "No comfort. Should have picked my seat."

Pros: "Staff excellent"
Cons: "Everything else, space restrictive"

Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "passengers being physically sick next.to me"

Pros: "Good service"

Pros: "Flight price."
Cons: "The service, accommodations, cleanliness, organization from the airline (multiple delays and two gate changes), comfort of seats, & entertainment options were all undesirable. I tend to only fly United when I have no other options. This experience was exactly what I expected from the airline. However, I was traveling with my mother this trip and wish I would've spent the money to fly a different airline."

Pros: "Flight was early!"

Pros: "I had an empty seat next to me and was able to have some more comfort on the 5 hour flight"
Cons: "The flight was delayed twice, very frustrating as we were already arriving at midnight."

Pros: "Was impressed w the new plane"
Cons: "Overhead storage a little small"

Pros: "On time, clean newer plane"
Cons: "No entertainment options, were promised free wifi to watch superbowl at the gate only to be told later there were ZERO options for entertainment, no tv, movie or wifi let alone free."

Pros: "That's it was fast and organized"

Pros: "Kayak e mails on gate changes and such"
Cons: "N/a"

Pros: "I liked the coffee."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by at least 45 minutes, making me miss my connecting flight. After that I had to wait 7 hours for the next available flight. Also the connecting flight was all the way on the other side of the airport. No one at the airport would help with directions to the next boarding area."

Pros: "Took off on time and arrived early"
Cons: "Leg room"

Pros: "The crew was awesome. I didn't have any food."
Cons: "I was very cramped. The 2 guys beside me were squished. The plane was 3 seats on both sides."

Pros: "Very friendly flight attendants & the pilots kept us posted on everything which made me feel extra comfortable!"

Pros: "i didnot like any thing"
Cons: "they cancle the flight time so meny and i got other flight cancled"

Cons: "Delayed departure, changed gate."

Pros: "Flight was delayed due to malfunctions and then cancelled and we had to board another plane and wait two hours the arrival time in the destination to Phoenix was 3 hours later than anticipated"

Pros: "As I had stated in the first part of the survey the crew members were again very friendly & helpful"
Cons: "I was surprised at how little space there was for a taller person & again the price's for the food & beverages I thought was very pricey for the average person."

Pros: "-Flight Departed On Time From Newark To Phoenix Sunday 1/3/2016. -Flight Arrived 30 Minutes Early In Phoenix AZ. -United A.L. Fight Staff Is 1st Rate!"
Cons: "-United Airlines Check In Procedure @ Terminal C Newark International, Bag Drop Off & Colridinated TSA Check In System Was OverCrowded, Seemed Un-Organized, And Inefficient! -United Airlines Would Be Better Served To Assign Two Ajirline Agents To Assisit United Passengers With Bag Drop Offs & Flight/Seat Assignmnets. -Also The Fact That United A.L. Charges $25.00 Additional For Each Bag Is Ridiculous! Just Build The Cost Into Each Ticket Peice. Southwest Airlines Is Ahead Of The Curve On This! That's One Reason Why Southwest Is So Successful'"

Pros: "Excellent and friendly flight attendants"

Pros: "I got there on time"
Cons: "Why not have people board the plane based on sat number? Why this cattle call and stand in line like you're not going to get a seat? Everyone fighting for line position so they can get a place in the overhead bins? Stupid."

Pros: "No turbulence smooth flight. Friendly pleasant pilot. Quickly landed parked and unloaded passengers."
Cons: "Longest security line I've ever seen. I almost missed my flight though I was 3 hours early. Weird set up at departures. At gate warned flight overbookedso we were all stressed we may not even get seat though mine was booked months in advance. I was in zone 4 and they only allowed zones 1-3 to stow carry on items that we had to already lug around the airport for hours. I was forced to check my regulation sized bag in the passageway to the plane as well as everyone else in my zone. Economy seat especially tiny and cramped. Unpleasant flight attendents."

Cons: "4 hour delay because of scheduling"

Pros: "The crew and pilot was very courteous."
Cons: "The flight was delayed three times. It was two hours behind schedule. Then there was a delay in boarding, no entertainment on board unless you buy wifi or previously downloaded the united app to watch selected shows on your mobile device! Appalling to say the least! Whatever happened to the days when you get on an airplane and food and entertainment was a part of your ticket price! Another thing that bothered me was the fact that I had to pay $25 for my suitcase! Really United! Am I not allowed one piece of luggage? I don't like carry my bags around with me so now I have to pay to check it! Shouldn't that be the other way around! Charge for carry on luggage, it's such a hassle and also slows down boarding time, cases congestion in the hallway with everyone reaching for their luggage in the overhead bins! I can keep going, but what good is it gonna do. United airlines suck!"

Pros: "Amazing! Informative pilot, with fun geograpgical facts along the way. SMOOTHEST LANDING I HAVE WVER HAD!! Friendly staff. Flight was great."
Cons: "Planes seats are small, especially fitting 3 people in one row."

Pros: "Everything went smoothly, times were great!"
Cons: "Crew a little snippy.."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They cancelled my flight the morning of, I was rerouted through a later flight to AA when the United employee couldn't speak enough English to communicate, I misheard 2:30 when she actually said 2:13. Showed up an hour early as I always do at Eugene airport, only to have the gate shut in my face...we'd missed the flight. I then proceeded to get in my car and drive three hours to catch a connecting flight to Phoenix through traffic etc etc....only to arrive in Phoenix 6 hours later than expected. All of my evening business meetings, lost. Thanks United, you always seem to find a new way to screw it up."

Cons: "Take off delay due to catering"

Pros: "Even though it was a larger plane it boarded rather quickly for the number of passengers on board"
Cons: "The United Express spoiled me because of its smaller size but being roomier then the second half of my trip"

Pros: "TV service in plane was awesome feature"

Pros: "Do people write here for frontier?"
Cons: "Sat on the tarmac for over 3 hours. A fight broke loose and we had to return to the terminal and then back to the tarmac for more sitting. The crew finally figured out how uncomfortable and frustrated people were getting 2.5 hours to sitting with no air on the tarmac. They relieved their customers suffering then with complimentary water! Now that’s service. Frontier is one of the most base airlines out there. I’m entirely frustrated that they are one of the only airlines that service our podunk airport."

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: "Good flight, love frontier"

Pros: "The flight attendants were very nice and comforting, as this was my first time ever flying and I was terrified."
Cons: "The boarding staff were rude! There was absolutely no form of entertainment. The seats were uncomfortable online said they recline for comfort however I couldn't find anywhere to get them to recline."

Cons: "EVERYTHING is an add on!!! Ticket price might be cheaper when you price check ....but by time you add on all the add ons your ticket price is NOT the best price. Won't fly Frontier again."

Cons: "Flight delayed To much extra charges (seat, carry on, etc)"

Pros: "Great take off and landing. Very comfortable seats."
Cons: "That no snacks or beverages were provided for free"

Pros: "That they waited for a plane to get in and take the passengers who were already booked. Between the holidays and bad weather, it was the right thing to do."

Pros: "Was late but the time was made up in the flight. Was quick and fine."

Pros: "absolutely nothing."
Cons: "cheap seats, dirty plane, garbage in the front pockets. Nickle and dime you to death on everything!"

Pros: "Boarding seemed to move really quick and seats were comfortable and seemed roomy."
Cons: "Flight was an hour late leaving. Check in at ticket counter was beyond packed, the line wrapped around."

Pros: "Flight was short"
Cons: "I was not informed that I would be forced to pay for a carry-on, which was more expensive than checking my bag. I checked it, which then forced me to have an additional 30 minute wait at baggage claim. Horrible experience especially due to the splitting headache from the child who was screaming louder than I ever thought humanly possible (that obviously wasn't the airline's fault though)."

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

Cons: "Hidden fees for carry-on bags is RIDICULOUS! Original gate was changed to the international terminal at SFO which meant getting a tram and going through a long security line again. When we landed in PHX, there was no available gate so we waited another 35 minutes. Seats are very uncomfortable and DO NOT recline at all. They also charge for soft drinks. Low budget...poor customer service...numerous delays...hidden fees...steer clear!"

Cons: "The flight was delayed 7 hours. It was horrible."

Pros: "Boarding was quick and easy"
Cons: "everything is an up charge, from carry-on bags to soda and snacks. if you want any and I mean any extra legroom expect to pay 17-25 dollars extra as well."

Pros: "I liked getting off plane."
Cons: "They have designed seats for children."

Pros: "So...i will never fly frontier again. Charging $40 for a carry on is outrageous. Also, i had to pay $17 to check in and get a seat. In my opinion, this is the worst airline I've ever flown. I'd rather book a flight that was (40+40+17+17) more expensive so i knew what i was getting. Than fly this airline again. On plane the service was great. I just felt like i was duped into buying a more expensive ticket than was proposed. I will never fly frontier again ( and i tell my friends that too)."
Cons: "So...i will never fly frontier again. Charging $40 for a carry on is outrageous. Also, i had to pay $17 to check in and get a seat. In my opinion, this is the worst airline I've ever flown.

Cons: "The baggage fees are ridiculous. Your bags should never cost more than you (the customer). You try and check in online and they want to charge you more to pick a seat. The seats are tight. The tray table is the same size as my cell phone. (The smallest I have ever seen). Airtravel has reached an all time low with Frontier. I was glad my return flight was on SWA. SWA was cheaper fare, has better seats and a better table, and no baggage fee."

Pros: "Great staff. They were always smiling and very helpful."
Cons: "Tight seating on Frontier. The tray table is half the size as normal, so not even worth using."

Pros: "Great leg room, clean, on time and great staff"
Cons: "Everything was great."

Pros: "The first price."
Cons: "The second, third, and fourth expense. Seat charge, bag charge, snack charge. and I still have a return flight to make. I wish I'd paid $250 to AA and gotten a better departure time and not had all the after charges to boot. Seriously, charge me for a carry on? I'll stick with American."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "1. You can't use electronic boarding passes, which I didn't know until I had made it through the security line in a huge airport. They sent me back to the frontier gate, but by then I made missed my flight. 2. They charged me $100 for a new flight 3. The seats were like rocks 4. They charge for sodas and carry on bags I think one of my fellow passengers said it best when someone asked him what he was doing after the flight, "Trying to regain the dignity this airline has stolen from me""

Pros: "Everyone was friendly, will fly again soon to San Fran."

Pros: "The fact that my flight was short."
Cons: "Didn't like the newer thin hard uncomfortable seats. I understand making them thinner allows "more room for additional seats" but these seats are not comfortable. Probably not going to fly Frontier any more, definitely for a flight longer that 1.5 hours."

Pros: "The people who work for this airline were very nice."
Cons: "The chairs do not move. Everything you want or need is extra. I am very displeased with this company, I use to fly with them all the time and was excited to have booked with them again sadly their new Airbus design is nothing more than a way for them to earn an extra buck and the discomfort of their passengers."

Pros: "Hard to say."
Cons: "Hidden costs- you don't allow a carry-on & you force couples to spend more $ to sit together. This whole thing seemed like a scam."

Cons: "Angry staff, uncomfortable seating, and the poor scheduling updates."

Pros: "The crew was as helpful as possible, very kind and clearly as frustrated with the situation as we were, and did their best to make sure the rest of our flight was comfortable."
Cons: "My flight was delayed for three hours. We were loaded on to the plane, then told it would be another hour, got off the plane, got back on, and it was still another 20 minutes until we started moving. It was tiring, frustrating, and caused a lot of issues with my ride in Phoenix. I do understand, however, that many of the issues were unavoidable, such as mechanical problems and missing mechanics, but it was frustrating nevertheless."

Cons: "I had a pretty unpleasant experience with Frontier on 12/21/15. Rain in San Francisco caused flight delays. Go figure. Frontier kept us waiting for six hours then cancelled the flight. They were rude; they didn't help their customers, including families with kids, get on other airlines; said they would try to getpeople out of SFO in the next couple days! When I realized I would not get to the wedding I was trying to attend, they siad they wouldn't refund my money' When I insistedon a refund they then said there would be a $19.99 cancellation fee. Eventually, they agreed on a refund. Pretty poor way to run a business. On the other hand, when I needed to cancel my Enterprise car rental, I was able to do it in less than two minutes over the phone - no hassle."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Canceled flight for weather. Stayed on line for 30 minutes to talk to someone who couldn't rebook me for a week and gave me a number for the airport desk so I wouldn't have to drive there but that number circled back to the one I just called, so I drove to the airport where no one was at the desk for an hour and again couldn't rebook OR give me a refund. Back home then for more calls. Entire trip was cancelled and ruined. Never have been treated like this by reputable airline where I could have been rerouted or offered a next day flight or switch to another airline."

Pros: "Love the new seats!"
Cons: "Terrible delay and almost no space for my legs--and I'm not tall."

Pros: "Nothing, was not on the flight."
Cons: "With flying Frontier, I was never clearly made aware that if I wasn't present 45 minute prior to flight departure that I wouldn't be able to check in. I was flying out of CID, a smaller airport that rarely takes anytime at all to get checked in and go through security. I arrived approximately 35-40 minutes prior to flight departure and found out that I wasn't able to get checked in. The flight was even delayed, and I could have easily gotten through security in time, as there was no line. Had I been clearly told that I would be unable to board the flight if I wasn't checked in 45 minutes prior, I would have. I was one of 4 people there that had the same problem. Please in the future make this more clear with Frontier communications!"

Pros: "Nothing... Charging for baggage overshadowed everything I canceled the return and Booked on southwest. This is an dishonest, tricky, unethical company."

Pros: "Very efficient and friendly crew."
Cons: "Flight delayed."

Pros: "The smooth flight"

Pros: "paid for exit row - was very comfortable"
Cons: "Was surprised that it cost to bring even a carry-on item - also, that soda had a charge. Should have been clearer when the cost of the flight was identified, in particular the carry-on charge."

Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "That I had to fly Frontier and get robbed by them at the holidays."

Pros: "Staff was friendly, aircraft was comfortable, there was no line at check-in desk."
Cons: "Baggage policies are very expensive and inconsistent with other airlines."

Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Hidden costs, uncomfortable seats, little space. Not worth the cheap tickets when you then have to pay for a seat and high prices for baggage. It comes out the same as other airlines."

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "I did not like the carry on fees of $45 per bag. Flight 1365 had some rude stewardess who in my opinion has something against Asian people. The plane landed in the wrong terminal. Taxi'ing took a long time. the seats aren't adjustable ."

Pros: "It was only 15 minutes late. Security and check in were easy to navigate"
Cons: "it was late and we missed the shuttle in Phoeniz"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Frontier nickel and dimes you for everything possible. They advertise that they cut back on all of the luxuries to save money on the ticket itself but after all of the extra charges you end up paying more than with any major airline. Not only do they charge you for checked bags, you get charged $30 for a carry on bag, $60 if you don't check in online before your flight. You have to pay extra for pretty much any seat on the plane. My wife and I paid $16 per person to sit in the window and middle seat in the second to last row. Nothing is complimentary. They even charge you if you want more than one cup of water which should be illegal. The seats are horribly uncomfortable (think stadium seating at a baseball game). Also, the customer service over the phone is awful. The employees literally read from a script and say the same thing over and over again until you give up. This is officially the worst airline I have ever travelled with and will never choose Frontier again."

Pros: "My return flight from Houston to SFO was scheduled to depart at 2:50 pm. I showed up at noon to check in, and had to wait an hour for Frontier personnel to show up to man the check-in desk. Two of the three automated kiosks were out of order, as well."

Pros: "Frontier is cheap as hell. They charge you for baggage but aren't as bad as Ryanair. If you check in online and pack a reasonable amount of toiletries and a laptop into a travel bag, you can expect a travel experience that is superior to Greyhound for the same or less. Don't compare them to first class on Emirates, that would be unfair. Compared to Greyhound or Ryanair, it was a superior travel experience."
Cons: "Small in flight tray tables unable to hold a laptop. No biggie."

Cons: "Frontier's customer service was awful. No one would help me check-in. I arrived 40 minutes early, plenty of time to get through security and to my gate in this small airport, but I was then informed that I couldn't check in since it was less than 45 minutes before departure. The e-ticket kiosk wouldn't print my ticket, and no one was able to help me. I talked to a number of different personel to no avail. I would gladly have accepted a flight later that night or a partial refund, but Frontier wasn't willing to work with me at all."

Pros: "Unprofessional boarding employees. Lack customer service."

Cons: "Prices Extra charges Bagging Crew members Flight seats"

Cons: "Delayed departure."

Cons: "Cost of carry on too high. Delayed flight. Flight attendants rather rude."
