Pros: "the video controller in the headrest of the seat ahead of me. you could see the flight pattern, speed, temperature outside and other specs, which were interesting."
Cons: "once again, the delta crew does not maintain their planes properly. during the taxi stage to get to the airway to lift off, there was a horrendous growling sound coming from the plane............seems like their hydraulic system is not maintained very well at all and it made a howling sound throughout the plane all the way to take off! we were wondering if there was something wrong with the plane."
Pros: "Crew"
Pros: "Great Service and flight was without problems or delays. Arrived on time ."
Pros: "The plane and entertainment system was good. The cabin crew was a little slow. But all in all it was a good flight."
Pros: "Nothing."

Pros: "Smooth and comfortable flight."
Pros: "The movies"
Cons: "NA"
Pros: "Cabin crew super helpful & friendly. The food was great - all snacks & meals were well prepared and had great flavor, I’m not saying it’s a 5 star restaurant, but I was wasn’t expecting the quality we received. Great job! Impressed by Delta service."
Cons: "Traveling is always a challenge - abundance of patience required! We traveled from Dallas, Atlanta, Amsterdam, to Rome & back. Every country had a little different process for boarding and getting around - most had friendly staff, on point, helping clueless, stressed, & frustrated travelers. I was really disappointed in Atlanta, not a very welcoming or helpful spirit for visitors to US - not all (80% were awesome), mainly those trying to greet and direct through customs. Most hate the arrogant America anyway, don’t make it worse - put your best people on the front lines to help with international relations & show why the US is the best. Put those that don’t want to be here loading bags out back! Sorry for the lecture, but this is any business!"
Pros: "Short and easy"
Cons: "poor hospitality by cabin crews cabin crews are very stingy in providing drinks"
Cons: "Not much- pretty great flight"

Cons: "No entertainment, snacks were bad and plane was old."
Pros: "20 minutes ahead of schedule"
Pros: "Everything was great"
Pros: "I like the snacks they are not giving out on the flights. It seems that Delta is trying to make the flying experience nicer instead of more tedious and uncomfortable like many other airlines, which is appreciated."
Cons: "The flights were both operated by Delta but booked through WestJet, and the flights themselves were fine. The booking was through WestJet (found the flight on kayak which kicked me over to West Jet's site) and check in was a pain. Their code did not work for their site or Delta's, I had to FB message them both leaving and returning to ask for the correct one, and the first request took them hours to answer. I'll just book Delta next time and save myself the trouble."

Pros: "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: "Departing on time and clean"
Cons: "There was no screens, all the other airlines have screens, but that wasn't my problem and I got coloring book and crayons for me daughter, so she can play with them, but my issue was that when they gave snack to everyone and I didn't get anything and then I told the other flight attendant that I didn't get my snack and still she didn't get it, she said she was going to get it and didn't come back :(( I was really disappointed with that, they r old and forget things, so our line 19 nobody got anything .. i like delta was I wasn't happy this time with it"

Pros: "Nothing. I missed a family members funeral and no one at the airline cares. I ended up staying home because the flight was delayed 8 hours."

Cons: "It was a quick and perfect flight."
Pros: "Everything was good!"
Pros: "The crew is so friendly. Perfect landing. Perfect flight!"
Cons: "Unable to connect to the new AA so-fi"
Pros: "Would fly again- irritated at how does a flight manage to get overbooked"

Cons: "Plane was old and uncomfortable, no in-flight entertainment unless powered by your device, scattered crew and little service for 4.5 hour delayed flight"

Cons: "Food options for first class could be better."
Pros: "The beauty that is Oregon."
Cons: "The fact that AA had an issue with THEIR plane which caused me to miss an already booked connecting flight. I ended up spending SEVEN hours in Phoenix waiting for a different flight to take me back to Tampa. The least AA could do is offer to pay for my supper or even a snack ANYTHING would've been nice. It's called customer service. I understand things happen that are out of our control, I also understand what it is to help make people whole or happy."
Pros: "convenience of Burbank airport"
Cons: "staff at check-in couldn't get my TSA pre-check printed on my ticket, got picked out to be patted down in regular line"

Cons: "Crew (stewardess' were quite crabby)."
Cons: "The flight attendant was the rudest one I have ever encountered in 47 years. She had short stacked blond hair. Her name tag was covered. She was rude to me and very rude to another passenger. She should be disciplined."

Cons: "Hour late crew rude"
Pros: "Got pretty much what I expected from economy."
Cons: "Lack of planning for carry on bags."
Pros: "Boarding was easy & seamless"
Cons: "Had to lie about forgetting my phone charger in the waiting area to get off the plane & give my niece a hug who arrived early on a neighboring flight from NY to RNO as we switched off to take care of my dad who just had a triple bypass. If two people are past security - there should be NO ISSUE with them meeting - we have already been screened & a hug or anything else should not be a crime."
Pros: "Not much. Boarding was disorganized. Plane was freezing and uncomfortable."
Cons: "No entertainment, ran out of meals by the time they got to the back of the plane."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything!"
Pros: "Timeliness"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Pilot announced a change in time."
Cons: "Paying for my plane ticket broke college kid..."
Cons: "I had to leaves Denver early due to my granddaughter needing help. To sees switch returns my ticket it would cost me me $200.00 but it could get a retire ticket for that day for $40.00. Why couldn't that dollar amount come of my ticket . That was just crazy"
Pros: "Pretzels and drinks."
Cons: "The group's for boarding are ridiculous. The back of the plane should board first and so on... the new plane we flew on had the smallest seats we've ever seen. When we tried to board, the crew would rudely say, it's not your turn. We were flying for a funeral and paid a lot for our tickets. We should be treated with respect. One lady said to put our luggage in the first available compartment, then when we tried, another lady rudely said, if that's not where you're sitting, you can't put your bag there. We were embarrassed and when we tried to explain what we'd been told she told us to keep moving."
Pros: "Everybody was nice my ride was comfortable and they treat me with respect"
Cons: "I like everything"
Pros: "The flight was fine"
Cons: "Both flights each way where delayed significantly"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed 8 hours and we were given vouchers for a hotel stay which was nice; however, a supervisor named Lauri in Phoenix stated "it was my dog, my problem" after my request for AA to reimburse me for a $50 pet fee at the hotel. What a nice thing to say to someone who paid $125 one-way to stick a dog under a seat."
Pros: "My back is probably even more worst than what it is ,I had poor back support...u had to sit up the wholetime and no pillows.Wish you all had reclining seats and a Lil pillow or something.Everytime I travel I'm never comfortable sleeping,if the trip is far."
Cons: "The seats,no cushion ,no pillows."

No food, no comfortable seats but at least staff was decent.

Pros: "Crew and plane ride."
Cons: "The seats hurt us."

Pros: "Comfort nice cool cabin on boarding"
Cons: "No complaints with airline but flight was a little ruff on approach made me a little nauseous."
Pros: "We had about a 45 minute weather delay but those things can't be helped. The Captain kept us informed and he flew like superman getting us through all that crazy wind coming into Las Vegas. The plane was new and clean, the crew was great. Love that wide aisle...it eliminates that sardine feeling!!"
Cons: "There was no way for us to add another bag after our seat placement. No one answered the phone for Alligent and the website didn’t work. It costs $20 extra to do this at the airport. Even though it was not our fault that there was no one answering phone calls (and no way to leave a message)"
Pros: "Definitely the price. Fairly quick boarding process, just a little congested. Decent priced drinks."
Cons: "Not the most comfortable seats, but there was no one next to me, so it was okay."
Pros: "The crew was amazing"
Pros: "The staff was friendly"
Cons: "The flight was delayed multiple times, the directions on having boarding passes on the app or printed prior were not given so found that our last minute to avoid paying the front desk clerk $5.00. The flight landed 5 hours later than scheduled which is completely unacceptable."
Pros: "Great crew and online customer service..."
Cons: "1- Flight Behind Schedule 2- Live customer service agents are truly non-existent until 1.5hrs before ‘departure’"
Pros: "Nothing, honestly. Constantly delayed, cheap airline with forced fees, only one I could take and I can’t believe you exist. You have horrible customer service"
Cons: "I will never fly you again. Sure you don’t care."
Cons: "Delays!!"
Cons: "Bags charge for 105$"
Pros: "Arrived on time after boarding was delayed. Great price/ you get what you pay for."
Cons: "No diaper changing station in any of the 3 bathrooms.flight attendants could have been friendlier"
Cons: "So many charges at every step. $5 for boarding passes?"
Cons: "I am so angry booking with them. I booked the flight and then thought, ok I will add a rental car. It said clearly that the rental Car could be canceled up until 24 hours before the flight. Well, 2 weeks before the flight, my friend said, don’t get a rental car, I will have my car. So I cancelled and only then did I find out that once I booked it through their site I could not get a refund for the car and I could only get a voucher for use on one of their flights! And only after they take out any fees and costs that was accrued! So angry!"
Cons: "Flight was very late. Have to pay $45 for a carry-on bag. Seats were uncomfortable and have to pay for all snacks and drinks including water."
Pros: "It was easy to book. And they helped me make changes to my flight schedule without charging me"
Cons: "Everything else is charged... from the in service beverage cart, to your boarding pass. Your baggage. Everything you have to pay for. So just be prepared for that."
Pros: "Quick boarding with no fuss."
Cons: "The planes could be a lot cleaner."
Pros: "Better than on time Smooth sailing through south bend airport!"
Cons: "Just have to remember thrift airline No seat going back"
Cons: "baggage staff was super rude. She told me I am the last passenger on the plane which wasn't true. She made me pay $50 because of little overweight. I could easily redistribute the weight among my bags if she gave me little chance. I was a single mom with two kids (3 months and 3 years old) had to pay a fine which I can't afford. Thanks for giving me the chance to express my feelings."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Last minute delay due to a plane malfunction. Was told very last minute. Seemed like there were no quick resolutions in play. Had to wait over three hours to fly out, doesnt that entail compensation by law?"
Pros: "Fare and friendly staff."
Cons: "No wi-fi."
Cons: "Our engine seats at the rear of the plane were of course a little noisy at first. We got these seats on both our flights. Hoped that at least one-way we would have managed seats with a window."
Pros: "On the way there and back the staff was friendly, the flight was smooth and and overall everything was just great. This was my first time flying with Allegiant and I will definitely do it again."
Pros: "Both ways were good flights. The return flight however was delayed. We did enjoy buying some tickets from a lady named Valerie in Des Moines who also later had to come on the plane and remove an intoxicated woman. She made everything so easy and simple and enjoyable. And we especially enjoyed the treatment that we received as my husband is a veteran. Thank you so much for that."
Pros: "I arrived safely Tommy Destination"
Cons: "It was so hot boarding and unloading. There was no air. Staff was curt and not very friendly as of assistance."
Cons: "Old plane with fixed seats with very limited leg room which were not comfortable- broken window shades, scratched windows, & rattles everywhere made for a long flight. Crew was ok, I would fly again if the price was enough of a savings"
Pros: "I did not like anything about it. The Departure flight was two hours late. They made us board then unboard the plane, change gates. Then the return flight was posponed from 9pm to 3am departure. They didn't have any refreshments in the gare area other than stale unhealthy pizza, no water. The seats on the plane were the most uncomfortable. I even purchased the extI did not like anything about it. The Departure flight was two hours late.

No recline, no room. Horrible flight"

No recline, no room. Horrible flight"
Pros: "Comfort and speed of the flight. Attentive staff!"
Cons: "Need one craft beer"
Pros: "Their flights are always delayed. They have some pretty old flights and they always get broke before the take off and they have to do some maintenance before take off. Not going to fly again with them."
Cons: "Entire flight experience."
Pros: "The price of the flight was cheap, but i know why. You ended up paying for your carry on luggage, ypu pay for seat assignment if you want to guarentee sitting with you party, you pay for soda. My flight was 1.5 hours late, due to mechanical problem. Plane was janky and it felt like it STILL needed repairs."
Cons: "Low airfare."
Pros: "We eventually got to Las Vegas."
Cons: "Everything. Spend an it make and book with someone else."
Pros: "GREAT EXPERIENCE FOR A FIRST TIME FLYER"
Cons: "everything was poor"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "5 hour delay. They offered meal vouchers. For 8 dollar like wtf? But of course they offered them after every place closed in the airport."
Pros: "STS ground crew waived goodbye. Love a small town airport"
Cons: "That you charge for every little thing...surprised you don't charge to use the bathrooms. Don't appreciate having to be your clean up crew either."
Pros: "The from take off to landing was smooth"
Cons: "Have no dislikes"
Cons: "I didn't like the schedule time change. Very inconvenient missed some of my planned festivities that were prepaid."
Pros: "Time of travel"
Cons: "No leg room"
Pros: "Having all the rodeo people going to the rodeo to Las Vegas"
Cons: "noise"
Cons: "The weather blizzard and freeways being closed. I missed my flight"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "7 ½ hr maintenance delay. Entirely predictable and easily forecasts. Pretty bush league."
Cons: "Late flight , now stuck on plane for 20 mins and being moved to another gate . Still on plane"
Cons: "Crew were not friendly at all; I was sitting in the very last row and could hear them complaining about various things. The passenger next to me asked multiple questions and was flat out ignored each time. The seats were very cramped, the flight delayed; a friendlier crew could have made up for that"
Cons: "Delayed flight"
Cons: "Very turbulent day."
Pros: "I was able to sleep most of the flight."
Cons: "My neck hurt a lot."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Delay, delay, delay, missed connection"
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."
Cons: "our flight was delayed in Chicago and our bags were not in Phoenix upon arrival"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "My email is not linked to my phone, so I got no warning notices of two gate changes waiting for my connecting flight home. I waited at the original gate (C39) from arrival time (2:30 pm) til boarding time (5:40 pm). When I saw no change to my destination, I checked the United App to find that the gate had been changed C33). Rushing to C33 I found another flight boarding at that location with one United Representative who could not stop to answer questions. Seeing two unoccupied Representatives at the next gate (C32), I asked if they could help me with the confusion, they said I should check with gate C33 - which I told them that she was too busy with other passengers. I searched for a Departure Board and discovered that gate C33 was still the gate, but "aircraft maintenance" had delayed the flight until after 8:20. After having to check my carry-on because of lack of space in the overheads, my departure from the airport was further delayed another 30 minutes. Upon returning home and checking my email, I found notifications of two different gate changes (C33 & C44). Announcements should have been made at both gate C39 about the changing of the gate and at C33 explaining the problem. The captain's lame excuse about air conditioning and Phoenix's hot weather was lame to say the least."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Bad experience"
Pros: "From start to Finish from ticketing to baggage claim we received Premier Customer Service"
Cons: "I never flew to Phoenix from Washington. I was held over at DCA for the night so I lost a full day of my vacation! Had to fly to Chicago and then to Phoenix. Was a total pain!!!"
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: "The nice crew"
Cons: "I wish if there was delay, we could do it at the gate not on the tarmac."
Cons: "we paid for 2 seats together in economy plus, but due to an equipment change, we were split up. In order to sit together we were downgraded to economy. It would have been nice if they had informed us when the change occured so we could have made arrangements"
Cons: "This flight was horrible. I upgraded my seat and paid extra for a premium economy and it was still crowded. There was gum or candy stuck to the floor right were I was supposed to stash my carry on. I pointed it out to the flight attendant and his response was "so you can't put your bag there?" I asked him if he would ruin his bag and put it there and he said "well, you don't know me." What? I had to worry the whole flight about putting my foot on that gooey mess. What did I get for my extra money? Aggravation."
Cons: "There was no entertainment available on this flight. It's a short flight so I don't expect any, however, I continued on to Phoenix that day from Chicago and that is a long flight. I expected free entertainment on that flight, as it was afforded on the flight on the Phoenix to Chicago leg of my flights earlier in the week. The Chicago to Phoenix had entertainment offered but it there was a fee, which I didn't appreciate and did not take part in. I looked around me as much as possible and didn't see anyone else pay for entertainment. Having in flight movies and TV available for feee is a great incentive for flying with United. If these long flights in the future are pay for view, I will not be flying with you when there are alternative carriers who do provide free entertainment. Thank you."
Pros: "Fantastic service! Much obliged for everything!"
Cons: "Need to pay for everything... internet, tv, and snack. Long flight when you cant fork out more money for what was free with canadian airline"
Cons: "Reduced leg room because of seat construction"
Pros: "No one sitting next to me."
Cons: "I need more room."
Pros: "An agent heard about our first flight and seated my wife and I together, in a row with extra leg room. And after weather delays the crew gave the entire flight free entertainment - it was great!!"
Cons: "The woman at check in demanded my wife check in her carry on bag, because she had a small pocket book and a plastic bag with 3 souvenir t-shirts. I told her we'd put the purse in the bag but for some reason she demanded we check in our carry on. And we saw two women right in front of us with "3" bags... That meant an additional 30 minutes at bag check while our ride circled the airport. The was the last of 4 flights, and it was the only time anyone made this an issue."
Pros: "Same"
Cons: "Same"
Pros: "The staff was very nice."
Cons: "I purchased two tickets and we weren't given seats next to each other."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Boarding takes too long"
Pros: "Everything two thumbs up for the flight, plenty of room"
Pros: "Good service good snacks."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Staff."
Pros: "smooth ride in the air"
Cons: "-arrived in Phoenix 2 hours late -plane sat on the runway for an hour and a half before taking off. -my small carry suitcase had to be checked -bags took 45 min once we got to Phoenix"
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Seating drinks/food pricing baggage handling"
Pros: "The crew was very helpful and polite"
Cons: "Anything but water was for extra. We weren't even offered a small snack for the price of the flight. My flight was changed three times and it was very cramped. They said there would be entertainment, but it cost as much as a movie ticket. They also managed to lose my bags for the third time in a row."
Pros: "Zero leg room! That actually was surprising as most other airlines have a lot more legroom. In flight entertainment was also lacking. Doesn't make sense to pay $7.99 for a 2.5hr flight. A lot of other airlines offer some sort of complimentary in flight entertainment. Also the luggage didn't start coming out for at least 30 mins of waiting at baggage claim. Not the worst experience I've had flying but far from being a good experience. It probably isn't worth flying united unless it's 1st class. But even they had to wait 30+mins for luggage!"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight was delayed two hours, lack of communication regarding delays even after airplane arrived, seats were uncomfortable and lacked room."
Cons: "The only thing I didn't like was that my flight was delayed. But hey, it happens. Over all it was great"
Pros: "I felt comfortable. Staff was great."
Cons: "The cracker and cheese box. The snack wasn't worth the money."
Pros: "Boarding started early and went very quickly. Seats were new and a leather type material , which is an improvement from old fabric seats. Nice headrests you could bend to support your head. Loved the new United app I downloaded for free which allowed me to watch movies and tv shows on my phone. We arrived at our destination 30 minutes early, which was a plus. Staff was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "They overbooked my flight and almost didn't let me on the plane even though I bought my ticket months ago! The only reason I got on is because some people didn't show up."
Cons: "The delay and lack of communication to customers."
Pros: "Your staff."
Cons: "The delays."
Pros: "Seemed to be a newer plane, and there was in-seat entertainment at each seat. Mine didn't work, though."
Cons: "United has to have the smallest seats of any carrier. There couldn't have been more than three inches between my seat and the seat in front of me. The guy in the middle seat wasn't a large guy, yet he poured over into my space. It's insanely small."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I was angry that I had to fly to Houston before heading to Phoenix which made my arrival in AZ much later than I had planned. My flight had been rescheduled since I missed my flight the night before because the first flight had been delayed. So the new flight was a longer trip because of the extra layover. The overall flight was a mess."
Pros: "Price was great and flight crew was nice."
Pros: "The jet was excellent. The boarding was easy and organized. The flight crew was very polite and professional. Everything went in a timely manner......."
Cons: "United overbooked by 5 passengers and that's not an acceptable practice. It's not fair to those who pay then get bumped off the flight..... This is terrible and needs to be stopped."
Cons: "Rows 20 to the back of the plane didn't get a beverage. Slow moving attendant. I was thirsty."
Cons: "The plane never cooled to below 80 degrees"
Pros: "On time."
Pros: "The only thing I have to say that is positive is that it was relatively easy to change my flight date and time in the United app once my original flight had been cancelled. The app was the only thing that helped me understand what was going on during the constant time and gait changes throughout the day."
Cons: "This airline is terrible. First we were told that the flight would be delayed 1 hour and 40 minutes. We were supposed to leave at 2139 from IAH to PHX. They changed the departure to 2309 due to "mechanical failure" of one of the aircrafts. We were told a plane was coming and that we were just waiting for another flight to Albuquerque that was delayed before us to leave the gait. Long after that first delayed flight left passengers for PHX were delayed 3 more times which ended in the final tenative departure time being 0145. We were told at 0115 to sit tight and wait because the plane was now here but the crew was still in route. Shortly after this promise, the crew showed up and everything seemed to be ready for us to board. Another 30 minutes went by and they announced that the flight was cancelled. United airlines had used up over 4 hours of changing gaits and times only to end up cancelling the entire flight. They did not offer any explanation for this nor were they the least sympathetic to the travelers who have all paid to be on that flight. The customer service was disgraceful and did not offer any type of help on reimbursement, hotel, cabs, or compensation for this."
Pros: "I love United. They're now my go to airline. I love the pet friendliness as well as every employee through United I met today from the bdl check in crew , to especially the flight crew on flight558 iAd to phx who I believe was from Houston and their Texas roots truly shined. Every crew member was Sooo attentive professional Cleanly pleasant and always smiling and happy to come around. Other crews could learn from this crew please take notice !!! I have never been so impressed (and I am a frequent flyer )"
Cons: "Flight tracker wouldn't work on screen or on phone disappointing"
Cons: "Food selection awful"
Cons: "This flight was 45 to 1 hour delayed, and I barely made my connection. The crew was not helpful in helping us deplane or giving us our gates to expedite the process. Awful flight"
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: "Nothing. Waited 6 and a half hours for a 40 min flight."
Cons: "I should have never taken a chance with Kayak over southwest. Only got a run around and 700% increase in waiting on the tarmac. For 20 dollar savings"
Cons: "Cobran por maletas de mano cobran por todo"
Pros: "Flight was on time leaving and arriving"
Cons: "Loud screaming children, foul mouthed arguments across the aisle from us and the crew did NOTHING"
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Seats were really tight."
Pros: "Great flight attendant"
Cons: "Seats too tight knees bump seat ahead"
Cons: "flight was delayed 2hrs because "the plan was messy". in my opinion it does not take 2hrs to clean a plane so I felt as if that was an excuse for something else that was bad on their part. Even if someone puked on the flight before that, that can deffently be cleaned in a quarter of that time unless the airline is to cheap to have the cleaning supplies on hand."
Pros: "The price is great, and the staff are great too."
Cons: "Delays (it is what it is) but people tell me they’re notorious for delays. Bartender at airport told me they’re shocked if no delays from them occur. Lol... refreshments are not complimentary but I expected that. Would I fly frontier again? I probably would. Great price, staff, and wasn’t bad spacing in the seats. If you’re a tall person, won’t be comfortable."
Pros: "Flight to attendants were very good."
Cons: "By the time I had added my bags, selected my seats I may as well have gone on another airline that didn’t nickel and dime you go food and drink. Will not do it again or my wife, advertise as a low cost airline but it most certainly is not."
Pros: "Very reasonable price."
Cons: "You literally have to pay for even the basic things, including for seats to recline. Cushion on seats thin and seats don't recline. 5hrs flight and No entertainment, no tv, no radio, no complimentary food...they offered a cup of water."
Pros: "The crew is really nice, attentive, and it's not hard to get their attention. They also don't bother you when you sleep and are overall quiet and courteous."
Cons: "Not knowing how long until we land. A quick "1 hour till arrival . . . 30min..." would have been appreciated."
Pros: "Price, that's all I can say..."
Cons: "I'm 5'11" and 140 lbs. Would be called skinny by most. I really feel for those unfortunate souls who get a mere 2-3" OR LESS of knee room before hitting the seat in front of them. What a joke!"
Cons: "I have not been on such a miserable flight in years."
Cons: "First the seats are the most uncomfortable metal chairs wrapped with material I've ever sat in. A 20 minute flight I could handle but after four hour flight my back hurt. You ask to review entertainment and food...why? You offer nothing substantial for either one."
Pros: "Price of flight"
Cons: "Freezing cold, food selections, price of food for quantity you get, no blankets, leg space horrible, charging for upgraded leg room seats when seats were open, only giving ppl 30 seconds to move to a an empty free seat at no chrg, plane was not clean at all in bathrooms-disgusting: walls filthy, counters dirty and grimy, door & floors filthy, soap dispenser unsanitary, crew comments|conversations about travelers, should start boarding from the bk of the plane forward"
Pros: "Crew was awesome!"
Cons: "Had to pay for each of my bags! So much for a cheap flight. I could have flown First class on American for what I just paid"
Pros: "Awful. The ground crew and the plan crew were not in-sinc. The jet way was a least 10 inches below the plane door. The stewards crowd was surley. The plane was late leaving for unknown reasons. The whole passenger group was held up waiting on the two person clean up crew to empty the trash. No one seemed to care about the passengers."
Cons: "It was the first flight of the day, we were delayed 95 minutes because a tire needed changing. Once chaanged, there was another delay to fuel the plane, then another delay to wait for another passenger to be added on this already 1.5 hour late flight. Once in the air, even basic things like menus to make basic snack & soft drink choices from were foregotten. It's clearly apparent they were never prepared for departure of the first flight of the day."
Pros: "Staff great,"
Cons: "Setting"
Cons: "After a 7+ hour delay, our flight from Nashville to Las Vegas was cancelled. The worst part about this was that nobody from Frontier would tell us anything. We only knew what we could find out online. Once security from the airport confirmed that our flight had been cancelled, the Frontier employee passed out an 800 number for us to call to either rebook or process a refund. Once connected, the employee offered to either refund me a total of $68.10 or rebook me on the next flight out... 3 days later. They offered no compensation for having to stay extra days nor would they offer to book on another airline. I ended up asking for a refund from an irritated and rude employee and had to pay over $600 just to return home."
Pros: "Everything went very smoothly. I have no complaints."
Cons: "No dislikes for this flight."
Pros: "The cheap flight. Smiley crew"
Cons: "The extra cost for seats and the overall situation about this airline no recline seat? Oh well."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled. No big deal. It happens. But the the manager at the ticket desk took two hours to figure out a solution. His "solution" was to print out a phone number, hand it out to each of the passengers and then tell them to call because "there was nothing else he could do for us". And then he left to some back office and didn't come back out. The phone number he gave everyone was out of service. I called the regular customer service and asked them to help me rebook a new flight. They refused and said only the employees at the ticket counter could assist. The ticket counter people offered a refund over and over. But why would I want a 100 refund when I needed to book a 3-400 dollar flight to get to my destination. About eight hours, a couple of yelling matches, getting hung up on twice, and several actual tears later, I finally got a flight booked but the earliest flight they could find was 24 hours after my original scheduled arrival time. I'm writing this thirty minutes into my wait for a hotel shuttle. Long story short, I will take a greyhound or catch a cab or walk to my destination before I ever use frontier again"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by an hour but there was no announcement made"
Pros: "Boarding was organized and the flight was on time for boarding, takeoff and arrival at the destination gate."
Cons: "The seats are well-shiort of luxurious, and there is no beverage service or entertainment. Also, you have to pay for both carry-on and checked luggage. I guess these are all things you should expect from a discount airline."
Pros: "The seats didn't recline. The flight was delayed. They lost my bag. I was going for a pool tournament, I was disqualified because I missed beginning of it. Then they lost my pool cue on the way home. They didn't even care about any of my loss. Never again."
Cons: "My flight was delayed and they lost my baggage. I normally wouldn't mind but I missed my pool tournament and they lost my pool cue. They didn't even compensate me for my loss. Never again"
Pros: "The flight itself was decent if you don't mind non reclining seats and no beverage service."
Cons: "The 3 hour delay on top of the fuel spill outside the plane that added another hour of sitting inside the plane. Flashing lights and everything with no updates whatsoever. Horrible. Never again."
Cons: "So many hidden fees. Ended up costing more than other airlines in the end. Everything had an extra cost after purchasing the tickets. Checking in was more money. Checking a bag was another cost. Each way. It was an extra two hundred dollars after we already purchased tickets for five hundred. Nothing was included in the original ticket price. No complimentary snack and beverage on a 4-5 hour flight. It also seems that seats are getting smaller and smaller to maximize profit at the expense of the consumer."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Website didn't work for hours when I wanted to check in. When I arrived the plane was delayed three hours before they said that the back rows 30-38 all had to rebook because they had an issue with the plane. That next flight required me two take 2 connecting flights (7 hours of flight time) and arrive 19 hours after my scheduled departure."
Pros: "cheapest fare I could find for last minute weekend trip to Las Vegas"
Cons: "seats dont recline. very uncomfortable. no entertainment. extra charge for carry on (you will charge me to carry my own bag?) I am not checking it in. flight was delayed (last flight out of houston)"
Pros: "Nothing!"
Cons: "My flight was cancelled."
Cons: "When did Frontier become a Spirit type of airline where everything is a cost? Even a carry-on bag? Will never fly them again. No reclining seats and what was with the tray? Can it even be called a tray?"
Pros: "Boarding was pretty easy and the crew was nice."
Cons: "The seats weren't comfortable at all and did not lean back unless you were in the first three rows. Not a lot of leg room made it hard to get some much-needed rest. Took forever to get off the plane when we landed."
Cons: "I vowed never to fly Frontier again but I had to go to a funeral last minute and they were all I could afford. Our flight was delayed 2 hours after we had already boarded. They offered no options for finding us another flight or anything. All the stores in the airport were closed because it was late and they offered us no food or drinks. Seats were unbelievably uncomfortable and didn't recline. Never flying with them again."
Pros: "I liked that it was a low price."
Cons: "I didnt like that you had to pay for everything and that they were really trying to shove the credit card down your throat"
Pros: "The plane took off on time, was flying smoothly, and even arrived a bit early."
Cons: "I would have liked a little more leg and aisle room."
Cons: "I was scheduled for the Sunday night flight. I was at the airport earlier the the one and a half hour that they recommend. The flight attendant never announced boarding the plane. When other passengers saw it was almost time to board they got in a line, and she started the check in process... and never announced the flight. She also never made any attempt to call my name over the loud speaker. On Monday night after being rescheduled, my flight was 3 hours late on departing because Frontier did not schedule a crew to be there. We were not compensated in any way, we were scheduled to arrive in MKE at 4:05 am and did not actually get to MKE until 7:35 am"
Cons: "Packed in like sadines. Seats that did not recline at all, for a 4 hour flight, that is ridiculous! !!"
Pros: "I like the personality of the flight attendants and the newness of the aircraft. Also we arrived 30 mins early"
Cons: "The new seats didnt recline and im 6ft so the too if the seat was a bit short and the bottom lacked in cushion"
Pros: "Not much to like about being late, choppy air and a terrible flight crew"
Pros: "Flight attendant Mary did her best to make up for the flights short comings. She was pleasant, cheerful and understood she didn't have much to work with."
Cons: "The agents at the ticket counter as well as those boarding the flight wee very unprofessional. They should be working cleaning bathrooms instead of interacting with the public. There was a manager present who acted more like a monitor than a manager. eventhough I have a return ticket, I will not use it and prefer to purchase a ticket on another airline. You can keep the money. I wouldn't subject a mango dog to your airline and service."
Cons: "Flight home was 30 minutes late and not one rep apologized or updated passengers. Horrible communication."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight cancelled 10 minutes before boarding on last flight of the day. Next available flight was four days later! I had to take a refund and buy a ticket for the next day on another airline. From now on I'll just buy my ticket on another airline to start with and save the trouble or wasting my time with this airline."
Cons: "They suck"
Cons: "We were at the Houston airport almost 3 hours before flight time, but no one was at the ticket counter. 45 minutes later the ticket agent arrived then told (not asked) us to move aside so they could check in passengers on an earlier flight. I completely understand the earlier flight thing, but common courtesy goes a long way! The gate agent was quite curt in his attempts to board people by boarding groups. The flight crew was tired, bored and just doing a job. Frontier will not be at the top of the list for future flights."
Cons: "0 leg room, pay for food, 0 entertainment. Solid performance again from frontier."
Pros: "Same as above. Same as above"
Pros: "The Flight was on time and the staff was nice"
Cons: "I seats seem to be smaller in size so the comfort was not as good. You have to pay for everything on the plane. This was my 1st time taking frontier so I was sure we would get complimentary snacks but that was not the case. There was no WIFI and no option to purchase it either. Overall, the Frontier was Okay."
Pros: "The crew was just great I had to leave a review. Woman at ticketing and the gate was amazing, very funny kind and accommodating! Flight attendants were the same as well, made the experience very pleasant :)"
Cons: "You have to pay for a bag, zero entertainment & zero free snacks :("
Pros: "Had to cancel flight because of long delays. Actually went smoothly and got an appropriate refund. Wasn't expecting that to be easy but it was."
Cons: "Carry on bag fees made it more expensive at the end. First flight was delayed 6 hours ended up having to buy another flight last minute"
Pros: "I loved the gate agent. She gave me a row of seats to myself. I also loved the flight attendants. They were very courteous, friendly and professional. The pitch between the seats were decent. They definitely respect the passenger and provide excellent pricing. I traveled without bags or personal item. I understood exactly what I was doing. Going to Vegas for 24 hours for next to nothing."
Cons: "I felt the snacks were overpriced. It was kind of funny seeing the flight attendants use debit or credit cards for each item on their cart."
