Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "This is the second American Airlines flight we have had in less than two months where there was an issue with the plane and multiple delays lasting hours. I understand delays happen, but we've had two late evening flights turn into red-eyes while traveling with one of our children. Will not be flying American Airlines again."
Pros: "The was plenty of leg room."
Cons: "One flight attendant was pretty unfriendly."
Cons: "Baggage claim was terribly slow and we were director the wrong carousel."
Cons: "The delays due to software"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for more than 4 hours with little communication from staff as to why, gate was changed to a gate across the airport."
Cons: "Condescending staff, lackadaisical crew, pitiful excuses of why we were delayed."
Pros: "Reliable and efficient."
Cons: "It took a while for the luggage to be delivered to the claim area, but it was very late in the day so I guess it is to be expected."
Cons: "New cheap fare is honestly offensive trash."
Pros: "I really like having the ability to upgrade to a more roomy seat the most. I am 6 foot 1in and leg room is so very important to me when i fly, it the difference between a good experience and a great experience. For just a few more dollars i was able to enjoy a great flight."
Cons: "I don't like not having the movies to watch on the back of the seats, although i do understand the cost cutting reasons. It's not a problem, just saying."
Pros: "I found this flight to be very efficient and the crew very professional and friendly. After a previous 15 hour flight I was very tired and this flight was a welcome ending to my journey."
Pros: "Fairly regular updates from Captain, approx every 15-30 minutes. Flight attendants were ok, performed duties as expected. Announcements were difficult to hear over sound system. I don't know if Captain and the flight attendants were soft-spoken, or if the volume was not turned high enough, but I could hear less than have of what was said over the audio system."
Cons: "On the plane for approx six hours. Sat for two hours at the gate, then another hour on the tarmac. Would have been more bearable, but AA's seats are sooooooo close together, that there is nowhere near enough room to stretch legs when weather causes delays. AA's seats are the most uncomfortable (in regard to space and lumbar support) of the three major airlines."
Pros: "I booked a codeshare ticket through Alaska Airlines reward program. I was worried I'd be shafted when it came to seats. Not so. I had the row to myself on both flights and just 2 rows shy of first class! Very impressed."
Cons: "it was an hour late"
Pros: "Actually, I like that it was late because my first flight arrived late. The flight overall was very quick and smooth."
Cons: "The seats were covered in crumbs from the previous flight, but that's probably because of the hurry to get passengers on to the next flight because the plane was late."
Cons: "No priority boarding for people with babies and toddlers"
Pros: "The crew was awesome. We were early arriving. More leg room this flight and I loved the in-flight entertainment games. Also charged area was good for phones. Didn't like having to pay for Wi-Fi onboard."
Cons: "The crew was awesome. We were early arriving. More leg room this flight and I loved the in-flight entertainment games. Also charged area was good for phones. Didn't like having to pay for Wi-Fi onboard."
Cons: "The handle for the window shade was torn off"
Pros: "My flight experience with Etihad Airway was fantastic. I will recommend anyone to flight with Etihad. Thank you for your great service Etihad crews. I will flight with you again soon."
Pros: "Again the wheel chair attendant was helpful, patient and considering we were not feeling well, assisted us at customs. We are seasoned travelers and this is not usually how our travels usually go. We appreciated the wheelchair services, the flight attendants."
Pros: "The in-flight snack and the flight attendants on the flight were great."
Cons: "I tried to standby for an earlier flight on a first class ticket but I was told that's almost impossible as people waiting for upgrades have priority over me, so they may be able to get me a seat but in Economy. So, AA has no problem having a First Class ticketed passenger traveling in Economy and ticketed Economy passengers flying in First Class. Well, I do have a problem with that and didn't stand for it."
Pros: "entertainment system on domestic flight is swesome"
Cons: "boarding took long time"
Cons: "Female attendant on 11/22 mpls>Dallas-Fort was very rude."
Cons: "3 hour delay - no compensation."
Cons: "After having my flight delayed 4 hours causing me to miss my connection, I was placed stand by on a different flight through another city so I could try and make it home on time. I was the first person in line for stand by, but the flight was full so I knew it was a long shot. Waiting at the gate, I was excited because one person didn't show and they were giving him a two minute wait time before I could board. During this wait time a woman passenger came over and said she had just been given a ticket change at the gate counter. The agent at the gate was furious because the flight was sold out and said the woman should not have received a ticket, but should have been placed on stand by. She went over and scolded the other agent for this mistake. Okay, so she should've been placed on STAND BY behind me in line. After the unprofessional arguing between the two agents, they both admitted it was a mistake and she should be second in line for stand by, BUT they did not honor this and placed her on the plane bumping me. Needless to say, I missed my connecting flight because of this and extremely inconvenienced my family and in addition had to pay an extra 75 dollars out of my pocket to keep my dogs at their kennel an extra night because I arrived home 5 hours after expected. I understand that flights end up getting delayed and the agents are doing the best they can to accommodate travelers, but admitting a mistake and not fixing it to make it right is unacceptable. I notified American Airlines of my situation and only received a form letter with enough miles to get me 1/8 of a flight. I don't even care about the miles because I don't plan to ever fly with them again, I want the money for the dog kennel I had to pay extra. I was visiting my husband who serves in the US Army causing separation from our family for long periods of time and this extra headache and expense due to the mistake of American Airlines was disheartening."
Pros: "More spacious seating."
Cons: "All ofd the overhead bin carry on luggage left no room atg all by the time we boarded So hence the leg room was very crowded. When will the airlines stop the ridiculous over use and abuse of carry on unchecked bags?"
Pros: "The crew's response was better than expected."
Cons: "Snacks were a bit too expensive."
Pros: "Flight was on time, and arrived about 1/2 hour early into MPS!!"
Pros: "Love the new entertainment on your own phone"
Cons: "Boarding took forever due to people's luggage in the overhead."
Pros: "Why because my flight was delayed did I get moved to the last boarding group???? I was group 2 on my original flight... I feel as though I should've kept that status. Subsequently... I was forced to check my roll on carry-on. I also was forced to wait at baggage claim in msp. I purposely traveled with carry-on items to avoid this issue! Not happy..."
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Fast flight"
Pros: "Uneventful, except for a malfunctioning getaway in MSP which caused a very brief delay."
Pros: "Hospitality, service, flight, and crew!"
Cons: "Budget Rental, OMG 55 min wait in the parking lot before some would check myself and several other renters. NEVER use budget again. Its not that they were understaffed. I saw Budget employees standing around doing nothing. On a side note the inside of the car was coated with a white cleaning solution, windows were dirty, and windshield fluid was empty."
Cons: "It was freezing."
Pros: "Enjoyed the flight"
Cons: "Requested for wheelchair assistance but none provided?!!"
Pros: "Did not travel from Phillies to Minneapolis. Due to change in program."
Pros: "Flight crew very welcoming, flight was pleasant."
Cons: "Seating a bit tight. Didn't offer any snacks only ice water."
Pros: "The boarding process was simple. We left on time and arrived early."
Cons: "The flight was absolutely freezing and the air was incredibly dry."
Cons: "Two hour delay due to mechanical issue was a showstopper."
Cons: "My flight was canceled."
Cons: "A passenger seated next to me threw up all over me as we landed. We were seated towards the back, we should of been let out first because when I say threw up, I mean he THREW UP!! And the hosts looked less than pleased and just handed us paper towels to clean it up. Just not very friendly."
Pros: "This one at least flew off the runway soon after closing its doora"
Cons: "Same as above but I missed a whole day with my relatives at the lake :("
Pros: "We left on time and arrived right on schedule. No problems or issues."
Cons: "I had a $200.00 fee to change my flight by 12 hours."
Pros: "Flight attendant was amazing!!!!!!!"
Cons: "Too much chaos at counter to board planes, 2 flights scheduled at same gate and my flight was 1hr 30min delayed because of it. Other customers missed flight etc... Admin could have worked better with these upset customers"
Pros: "Slept the whole way"
Cons: "First flight not found; no pilot to fly; and then there was no crew to attend. Passengers made to wait more than 1 hour inside the plan. my opinion, all could have been handled simultaneously if somebody thought about it."
Cons: "Delayed flight for 2.5 hours."
Pros: "The flight was on time. Crew was fine, but I had limited interaction with them."
Pros: "Cheap ticket."
Cons: "2 hour delay, packed flight."
Pros: "Crew was first rate..."
Cons: "One hour late taking off but understandable..."
Cons: "Apparently Frontier doesn’t have partnerships with a lot of airlines which meant I had to get my bags, tote them halfway across the country and check them with the airline my connecting flight was on. Since I had a torn ligament in my knee and the connecting flight was in a different terminal, plus having to pay the baggage fees a second time this was less than an acceptable solution for getting my luggage on to the next airplane."
Pros: "The extra fees for checking baggage was a surprise, but the air fares was cheaper than the other airlines."
Pros: "Clean roomy plane. Comfortable seating. Polite helpful professional flight attendants. Smooth ride. Easy on and off. Ontime!"
Cons: "Only water offered complimentary. Charging for a carrying bag. Charging for an early seat selection."
Cons: "Seemed like a good price until I booked and then had to pay for add on such as a carry on piece of luggage. They also gave a sales pitch onboard about "their" credit card. Seats were crowded and uncomfortable. The flight attendants seemed as if they would have rather been anywhere but helping passengers. Both flights were late not due to weather. After booking this flight with all of the ad ons, I found I could have flown Sun Country or Delta for less - and next time I will use another airline."
Pros: "Lots of leg room"
Cons: "Seats could be more comfortable"
Pros: "My God what an excruciating 3 hour endeavor. Kicks, screams, and all in the awful pitch of a little brat. Kid wouldn't sit down and wouldn't shut up. Flight was full so when I asked to move there were no other options. In all of the flights of my life, by far the worst experience."
Pros: "The crew is friendly and courteous."
Cons: "I don't like not being able to sit with the person I am flying with unless I pay extra money."
Cons: "Email notification of a 3 hour flight delay 2 hours before flight but I was already on my way to the airport. Then the flight gets cancelled but no email notification was sent and the screen wasn't updated at the gate (the whole time I was there). If I hadn't come back to the gate during the long delay and asked a fellow passenger why they were in line, I wouldn't have known it was cancelled for a long time. The employees at the gate were helpful in refunding our tickets, etc. but overall, not happy with my experience with Frontier Airlines."
Pros: "That I'll never have to fly with Frontier again."
Cons: "Customer service Lost bag Comfort Fees"
Pros: "Crew and how fast the flight was."
Cons: "Baggage fees, seat comfort, temperature of plane,"
Pros: "This flight was ok. Crew was new and tried hard. On complimentary drinks only a 75cent savings to you but makes better feelings."
Cons: "Flight from MSP to Denver. Waited in line to leave bags for almost an hour! Only one agent who spent 20 minutes with one party. No excuse for such poor service which happens frequently according to an airport policeman going by."
Pros: "Flight attendant's comments were very humerous"
Pros: "I was not aware that both carry on AND checked bags incur a charge with Frontier. The only positive thing about this is that Frontier charges more to carry on a bag than to check a bag, so at least boarding was fast because most people checked their bags."
Pros: "Both flights boarded quickly, left on time, and both flights arrived several minutes early. Good winds or whatever really helped with my first impression of your airline. Clean plane, courteous staff."
Cons: "While I know it's not included in your fares, I really am used to a cup of coffee or a coke when I fly."
Cons: "Paying for a seat and bags."
Cons: "Frontier doesn't offer any refreshments except water. There also isn't any in-flight entertainment on such a short flight."
Cons: "there were a few rude staff, they CHARGE FOR EVERYTHING. Delayed flight without explanation. I wont book with frontier again because by the time that you add up all of the extra charges, I could have flown more comfortably with delta"
Pros: "Easy boarding."
Cons: "Our flight was cancelled and we couldn't get another flight for 3 days. The airline didn't offer any comps or reimbursements for the extra days."
Cons: "I expect to pay for the little things with frontier, but I was told 12 hours previous to takeoff that my flight was canceled because not enough people booked. I was stuck trying to book another flight that close to departure and had to pay over $300 more. They didn't do anything to help."
Cons: "I don't have respect for a company that doesnt take care of its paying customers. The 45-minute pre-board rule is almost criminal. It's hidden deep into their website where no one can see. And for business travelers like me, you don't always get to the airport before 45 minutes before as you bounce from meeting to meeting. Never flying Frontier again after they stole hundreds of dollars from me."
Pros: "I like that I can go just about anywhere with a carry on bag for under 100!"
Cons: "No food, no entertainment"
Cons: "charged me for carry on that ticket site said was free. Bad business!!"
Cons: "Trying to get on an earlier flight that was not 10 hours late!"
Pros: "You should have n/a sections with your survey. I did not have any food, nor did I take advantage of any entertainment, so I just checked okay on your survey."
Cons: "Flight was delayed."
Pros: "The row I sat in had tray tables that were bigger than my hand!"
Cons: "We were called to board as "zone 1,2 and 3" all at once. This made it a big blob of people trying board, super annoying and not the greatest idea. You get on a plane with no wifi, no tv. And then we got to wait nearly 45 minutes for our checked bags at midnight on a Wednesday where the airport wasn't even busy.... Come on, Frontier, I've always rooted for you. Not so much anymore"
Cons: "You have to pay for everything. Tried to charge me for a computer bag coming into plain although we are allowed one person item I should be comped flights. Due to this horrible experience."
Pros: "quick turnaround once our plane arrived, crew was solid"
Cons: "flight delayed, no apology or compensation."
Cons: "My flight was cancelled and there was no effort to get me onto another flight any sooner than they possibly had to. When they finally did get me on a flight a day and a half later instead of an hour layover I had a 9 hour layover and when I asked if it was possible to get on an earlier flight I was given attitude and treated very rudely and dismissed in spite of how polite I was. In addition to getting in two days late and coming in at 3am, my luggage was lost and there was no one who could assist me in the entire airport and when I called their customer service I was eventually hung up on, after sitting on the phone for 15 minutes, as it was after hours. When I did get a hold a representative the next day they were very put out that I didn't want to make the two hour drive to the airport to get my luggage and instead wanted it delivered. Worst experience I've ever had after many years of heavy travelling. Absolutely terrible."
Pros: "Crew was overall competent and polite. Plane was clean. Price was very good."
Cons: "Seats are too close together for comfort. Food service was a joke, but we knew that going in. However, my wife asked if the ice water was free (every food/snack item costs money), and the look my wife received from the flight attendance was not what we considered polite or courteous."
Cons: "Service is tribble and I don't have a any plan to fly to frontier"
Pros: "The graphics on the planes are cool!"
Cons: "The $51.00 charge for a carry-on."
Cons: "The online check-in process is very poorly designed."
Cons: "Frontier has gone too far with their ridiculous additional fees. I had to book the ticket for my 6 year old daughter to fly with me a week after I bought my flight. I was prohibited from booking her flight online...fair enough. But when I called to book her flight, they charged me an additional $10. It gets worse. I spent 30+ minutes on the phone with their representative and she was 'unable' to link our reservations or book our seats together. She told me to request that we are seated together when we check in. When I checked in, the person told me to as at the gate. When I asked at the gate the guy told me that he couldn't change our seats. SERIOUSLY?! Frontier has gone too far. Shame on you guys."
Pros: "Crew on plane was nice."
Cons: "I specifically bought a bag to match Frontier's ridiculous '1 free personal item, everything else you have to pay policy,' and the employee at the check-in (which I wouldn't have had to even interact with if they accepted mobile boarding passes) tried to make me pay for it. If I wanted to pay for my bag I might as well have gotten a flight with SunCountry, Delta or Southwest and had more legroom, in-flight snack, free carry-on, etc."
Cons: "Had delays on both ends of my flight"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "The boarding took way too long. Nobody's fault I suppose, but people didn't seem to know to move quickly and get out of the aisle."
Pros: "boarded on time"
Cons: "have to pay for ALL snacks"
Pros: "Got home on time"
Cons: "Staff seemed tired, no leg room, no reclining seats, charged extra for carry on bags"
Pros: "Getting there early"
Cons: "Turbulence but no one is to blame for that"
Pros: "A bag of pretzels should not cost more money after buying a plane ticket. It should be complimentary. The crew was great!"
Cons: "Waiting for the baggage to be loaded onto the plane in Denver after boarding the plane sucked. I'd rather wait at the gate then sit on the plane."
Cons: "No one told us that the setbacks on Frontier do not recline!"
Pros: "The flight to and from were both very good."
Cons: "I didn't have an issue with the delay because I understand that happens. The big issue was the lack of communication and information about the situation. We had no idea how long we were going to be delayed for."
Cons: "They lost one of my bags and I still don't have it"
Pros: "We landed."
Cons: "Had to pay foe everything!"
