Aircraft was delayed..

Aircraft was delayed..

The process of printing a bag tags and applying them was left totally to customers. Staff was rude and unhelpful. After the bag drop, there was no way to exit to enter security line, we had to go under a divider. TSA line was long and staff was rude and stressful. Staff was rude on board, I paid $125 to have my pet fly with me and they scolded me bc his head was peaking out of the carrier as I boarded. Even with $125 for my pet, I still couldn’t have carryon in the overhead bin.

Love the early arrival. In flight wifi was fiddly and confusing.

Everything was good

The crew in Burlington VT on Feb 5, 2022 were incredibly helpful in rebooking my connection flight since I would miss it due to delay. The lady who helped me really took her time looking for the best option. Everything worked out great at the end! Crew definitely demonstrated a great ability to work under stress (all flights were delayed due to snow storm). Thank you for your help!

Horrible. Will never fly again.

Cons: "Better food choices"
Pros: "In this age of very tight seating. JetBlue still manages to offer a better seat, a happy and efficient crew and good service at the airport ."
Cons: "I’m a short, average weight woman that felt the space in the bathroom was impossible! There were only two bathrooms for the whole airplane, used both once and I could barely fit in it."
Pros: "Good leg room"
Cons: "Old plane and time for the boneyard."
Cons: "comunication with the custumer"
Pros: "Crew was nice and accommodating. Plenty of leg room in regular cabin. Good entertainment options.?"
Cons: "Not boarding us 30 minutes late then keeping us at the gate for another 30 minutes after landing"
Cons: "Flight was delayed leaving NYC and when we landed in New Orleans, the gate was occupies, so we had to wait."
Cons: "We were delayed which happens sometimes. I departed gate 26 at JFk the problem with the delay was there was no place to sit during the 90 min delay"
Pros: "Our crew was great"
Cons: "The delay sucked all the kiosks didn’t work 45 minute wait at the help desk bad"
Cons: "Waited to book seat and had to upgrade at 70.00. Feel ripped off. Did not appear to be any other choice."
Pros: "Crew was so helpful... even loaned me a phone charger."
Cons: "The flight was delayed after we boarded- originally scheduled to be in time. We sat on Tarmac 1.5hrs before we were able to take off"
Cons: "Pillow and blanket were extra"
Pros: "I made a flight, canceled it that day and booked on a different airline. But, I never got a cancellation email. So all I saw was the JetBlue flight. Last night, I got an email from Kayak telling me to check in so my daughter went to the wrong airport to the wrong flight!!"
Cons: "Why was Kayak not notified that I don't have this flight anymore? I booked 2 months ago...didn't remember the details. Do you know how confusing it is to get a check-in email, after no cancellation email? So when I search my email all that comes up is the flight that was canceled! Bad communication"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "entertainment, boarding-excellent Seat were pretty comfortable"
Cons: "Crew needs to learn better customer service"
Pros: "The flight was relatively quick and smooth."
Cons: "When I boarded the flight the overhead bins were already full so I had to check my bag at the gate. When I picked it up at baggage claim my bag was soaked and my pink bag had black dirt all over it. The terminal had poop on the floor in multiple spots along the main path where people walk, which is clearly disgusting and concerning. Although the flight was fine the combination of these things made it a very unpleasant experience."
Pros: "Comfort is good, staff is nice"
Cons: "I cannot believe I got talked into checking my bag as they seemed to have very little overhead-bin space - now I’ve been wasting my precious time waiting for my baggage for more than 20min already with no end in sight. This is outrageous!"
Pros: "Just liovrJetBlue! The personnel is always attentive and engaging, quick with a smile and ready to lend a hand when needed. I believe other airlines should try to find out their hiring process and copy their system to get such quality people that understand service."
Cons: "JetBlue is how flying is meant to be!"
Cons: "Blankets are $5"
Pros: "Pilots made for a great flight in horrible weather conditions"
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Everything overall. The planes are old, the wifi was weak and didn't work on my leg back, the snacks are mediocre, the terminal is subpar. I will take Delta any day over jetBlue."
Pros: "Nice crews"
Cons: "Delayed nearly 2hours"
Pros: "Crew was very polite. Good leg room."
Cons: "Video did not work good. video screen small Plain not very clean Extra charge for blankets, pillow, adult beverages."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, crew was very nice, flight was very smooth."
Cons: "I searched and searched forever to figure out how to connect to the WiFi inflight. My phone kept telling me that I was connected but I could not use any apps or connect to the internet in anyway. I looked in the seat back pocket for information on how to connect, nothing. I googled before we took off, nothing. I loved everything else about this flight but this was incredibly frustrating, especially when I was traveling for work."
Pros: "Thank you for the leg room! While all the other airlines are packing people on the plane like sardines, thank you for treating your customers, especially the economy customers like human beings. I can’t emphasize enough how much that will affect my travel choice and I am not even a person of big built."
Cons: "The head rest did not have the bending capability so the head can’t rest comfortably to either side while sleeping."
Pros: "Slightly greater than average leg room, makes a difference! Have not flown much with JetBlue in the past, but I plan to use them more in the future!"
Cons: "The flight took off two hours late. We were suppose to arrive at our destination at twenty minutes after midnight, and instead did not arrive until 2:30 a.m. You felt like the pilot got on the plane when you did with no planning involved on how to get to Austin. I later learned that Jet Blue has the worst on time record of all the airlines. And you got nothing to compensate you for the inconvenience. I am really disappointed in Kayak for not making it known on our ticket that we were flying from New York to Austin on Jet Blue. When buying my tickets on Kayak, it appeared on my itinerary that all my flights were on Iceland Air. It was very confusing to me, as I don't travel very frequently. And airport staff is not very helpful when you are in this situation. Due to all the confusion, I will probably use another airline search tool for my next trip to see if I can lessen the confusion."
Pros: "Plane was best coach accommodations at no upgrades . . . Ever! Plenty of space, clean, fresh, a Wow!"
Cons: "Delayed departure waiting for catering to show up"
Pros: "The JetBlue staff was very attentive, and we reached our location quickly! Definitely will keep JetBlue in mind for future travel."
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "I was feeling a bit ill and asked to move to an empty row to be able to lie down, and the flight attendants accommodated my request and were very kind to me. I was then able to nap and felt better after. I'm grateful for their hospitality!"
Pros: "Departure on time. Arrived early. Good snacks, WiFi and TV. Bags arrived easily."
Cons: "Wish there were movies (flight just under 4 hours)"
Pros: "Being on time is the most important thing for me! Thank you for landing earlier."
Pros: "I occasionally fly with Jetblue and I’m never once disappointed. They still serve Terra Blue chips (one of my favorites) thumps up for that. The seat are spacious. I was actually surprised to see free WiFi."
Cons: "Steward seemed to have a bit off day but other then that I had a uneventful flight."
Pros: "Service was great. Crew was nice. Refreshments were enough for the duration of the flight."
Cons: "Only issue is that you need to pay for the headphones."
Pros: "Crew was awesome, decent leg room, free wifi!"
Cons: "Our plane had a mechanical issue and fixing it caused a two hour delay; the row I sat at had something smelly spilled on the panel below the window that required the crew to call for cleaners"
Pros: "JetBlue is really the only airline that I care to fly anymore. Not only do they get me to my destination on time in comfortable seats but their staff is very accommodating and friendly."
Cons: "Everything was great"
Cons: "More movies. More breakfast options. And ran out of cookies."
Pros: "Flight crew was friendly!"
Cons: "My tv screen didn't work. It kept flashing in and out for the first hour until it finally went black. On the rare occasion that a picture showed on the screen it was too dark to determine what was happening or what I was looking at. This made the ride feel long."
Pros: "JetBlue in general"
Cons: "Seating area was a bit messy. Not horrible but not super clean."
Pros: "On time."
Pros: "Once again, flying Jet Blue was a great experience. The comfort of their terminal at JFK and their spot on service made a long day much easier. And we really enjoy the individual TV screens."
Cons: "The buttons on the TV were a bit glitchy but probably from being used so much."
Pros: "Fast, on time and comfortable. Good"

Connecting flights with first class seats is not as enjoyable since the flight was short. Will look to take more straight flights so i can enjoy first class more!

Pros: "Seat was okay, and the crew were good. Boarding was quick probably because not many passengers on flight."

Pros: "Each employee on the plane was nice."
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Lots of movies to choose from."
Cons: "Delays out of MCI and late arrival, no hope for a decent seat on HNL leg, couldn't sit with husband, huge smelly seat mate, used up 10,000 miles on my account and paid higher price than current ticket price, middle seats, not happy"
Pros: "I am usually happy with Delta."
Cons: "Huge smelly person invading my space. Disgusted by his hot sweat on my leg. Used up 10,000 miles and paid too much (watched the fare go down several hundred dollars) and ended up with a middle seat. Not happy."
Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "Stuck at landing. For over 20+ minutes"
Cons: "Snacks"

Cons: "Games on the tv were okay. Tetris would be a nice addition."
Pros: "Flight was early into New Orleans"

Pros: "The short duration of the flight and punctual arrival. Better seating with more leg space in Airbus than in the horrible Boeing 467- 400."
Cons: "No headsets distributed so I couldn't listen to film program. Crew rather impersonal. I'm dreaming of an airline that uses functioni g loudspeakers during boarding. Nobody understands acoustically which zone is being boarded ( not only a Delta issue)."
Pros: "Flight attendant's are awesome and they always try to make your flight better."
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "I got bumped from this flight a couple of hours before departing."
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Wi-Fi not working or hard to get to work. Flight was delayed by an hour and service was very rushed."

Cons: "This was an easy flight. Nothing bad."

Cons: "1 hour flight delay"
Pros: "Nothing including the captain who was making the boarding announcements at MCI who talked to me like I was stupid"
Cons: "My flight was delayed almost two hours which caused problems for me arriving late to business appointments in New York. My flight areas also late 45 minutes leaving New York. In both cases it was due to a late airline attendant this is increadably unprofessional."
Cons: "Flight was delayed nearly 2 hours without any compensation to the passengers. I frequently fly jet blue and whenever they are that delayed not weather related the staff frequently gives the passengers a complimentary cocktail. Also your boarding process makes little sepnse to me why board from the front of the plane more sensible to board back to front"
Pros: "The gate person was very accommodating"
Cons: "It was over 2hrs late due to mechanical problems. Seems to be the norm."
Pros: "It wasn’t bad or good."
Cons: "Long delay due to maintenance of oxygen masks issue. Why hadn't this been taken care of with preventive maintenance?"
Cons: "Seating was tight"
Pros: "Personnel and crew handled the problem in a professional manner doing everything in their power to make the best of a bad situation. Another plane was provided within a reasonable time frame."
Cons: "Four hour delay. Boarded and then being told after 40 minutes that the problem was not fixable."
Pros: "Boarding was easy. Wifi was available and we got some snacks. Paid extra to sit in roomier coach, was worth it."
Cons: "Still pretty cramped, not the crews fault. Would've been better with the seat back screens"
Cons: "No space."
Pros: "I appreciated the helpfulness of the crew."
Cons: "On the flight to Kansas City we had movie screens which spoiled me and made me think we would have them on the way back to Atlanta."
Pros: "When our flight was delayed by four hours they gave us snacks at the gate. No one offered to reschedule."
Cons: "The 45 minute wait in the Sky Priority lane to drop off baggage. The flight was delayed because of weather and then their scheduling system crashed. Had to wait for a pilot. When we finally boarded at 5 we got peanuts in first class. That was worth the mileage upgrade. Upon landing there was a 1/2 wait on the tarmac to get a gate. That same plane, upon taking off back to DTW blew a tire upon take-off, had to do an emergency landing and everyone had to spend the night in NOLA after being delayed all day."
Pros: "Good uneven full flight"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The delays, we change to gate three times, Delta never told us why the changes or announce them. If it wouldn't be for Trippet Pro, where I got notices, I would not have known about gate changes."
Pros: "The crew was very apologetic and nice about the delays."
Cons: "The plane was 20 minutes late getting to the gate. Then we sat on the runway for over 30 minutes, while we waited in line for 30 other planes to take off. After a long day and a flight from Venice Italy, it was a bit disappointing to have this sort of delay."
Cons: "Bumped from first class to coach."
Pros: "Upgraded"
Cons: "The plane departed 1.5 hours late due to crew issues."

Cons: "The salad was included two unmentioned items that were unwelcome: bleu cheese and pasta."
Cons: "Better snacks"
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Two hour delay including 20 minutes to get flight data because on board computer not functioning. Usual knee in chest seats on commuter jet."
Cons: "The wifi didn't work. No seatback everyone's screens, only a screen over there middle row of seats. Maybe update your 20 year old livery."
Pros: "On time, kind crew"
Cons: "Bigger seats"
Cons: "Thank reserved seats at time of purchase for a British airways plane and paid for extra legroom. When I checked in, I was routed to American Airlines and the seats were the same in the entire aircraft except for first class. Why did I pay and shouldn’t I get a refund?"
Pros: "Trip was wonderful."
Cons: "My son and I had seats in different places and they asked him to move forward several rows because of weight and the seat beside him was empty so I asked if I could sit next to him and they said no without giving any explanation. That kind of upset me. Just a short explanation would be fine."
Cons: "Paid for upgraded seat with complimentary drinks that I still got charged for."
Cons: "They lost and cant track my baggage. Very poor customer service."
Pros: "Quick boarding, smooth on time flight. Easy access to DC from Reagan airport"

Pros: "On time. No delays. Smooth landing"
Cons: "N/a"
Pros: "Love seat space in aisle 8f. I remember that is a perfect seat for persons 6'3" or better. I got a chance to nap for about 1 hour, not normal for me. Very comfortable."
Cons: "Everyone was really good"
Pros: "Taking the exit door makes a difference in having enough leg room. Everyone was nice an helpful."
Pros: "Seats were nice, service came pretty quickly considering the size of the plane, boarding went reasonably quick"
Cons: "Started boarding and didn't announce another delay till we're on the aircraft, sitting in the gate for an hour and a half. My audio jack was broken and regardless, it will still trying to charge me for everything even though i was force to be squashed between two people who are also frustrated about sitting doing nothing."
Pros: "Travel time"
Cons: "No snacks on flight. The charging stations come in between legs space and very uncomfortable they got to be re adjusted. Make sure these are taken care in upcoming flights."
Pros: "it was a bit bumpy all the way to NOLA, but we still got drinks and snacks, and flight attendants were very nice"
Pros: "On time, non stop"
Cons: "New higher prices for less service."

Pros: "Cabin was clean. Flight attendants were courteous."
Cons: "Their snacks were merely a cookie which was okay, but not what I would have wanted."
Pros: "Seats were mildly more comfortable than DELTA seats."
Cons: "Passengers with small children weren't offered to board early like with every other airline I've traveled with... Delta, spirit, united, etc. So I ended up being humiliated because we held up the line trying to get situated with the baby."
Pros: "Courteous crew"
Cons: "The plane was tiny and old"
Pros: "Everything was on time and great."
Cons: "Ever thing was fine."
Pros: "The entertainment system. It was awesome. The crew was friendly."
Cons: "Nothing notable."

Pros: "Haven't left yet don't leave until today the flight was behind due to maintenance"
Pros: "On time. Friendly."
Pros: "The estimated time for both my flight was over an hr, but we arrived in on my first flight at 45mins and my second flight 30mins."
Cons: "N/a"
Pros: "Our flight had a veteran who had received the Medal of Honor and the pilot and attendants took a moment to recognize him and it was sooo special and meaningful for American Airlines to take the time to thank this awesome individual!!! Thank you!!"
Pros: "They were able to use the electronic boarding pass through the app which is nice. Boarding was really quick."
Cons: "The overhead bins didn't have enough space for carry on for everybody flying."

Pros: "I like how they kept us updated on when the flight would leave"

Pros: "Flight was ok"
Cons: "They lost my luggage and I haven't gotten it yet"

Pros: "Great crew"
Pros: "They really help out families with young children."
Cons: "Internet wasn't working."
Pros: "Ok."
Cons: "Less time with seatbelt sign on."
Cons: "Our flight was canceled for no reason making us lose 1 day of vacation. The airline didn’t even bother to contact us."
Pros: "The captain was wonderful"
Cons: "The crew were jerks"
Pros: "Crew was efficient and personable."
Cons: "Two and a half hour delay leaving EWR because aircraft was late from prior destination. UAL said FAA limited flights coming in due to weather. Although scattered light rain, no seemingly unusual weather at EWR. No special reward once on the flight to make up for that delay (I.e. still charged for snacks and alcoholic drinks). Delay was very frustrating. Also, not a fan of selections on United WiFi entertainment - very limited."
Pros: "Boarded on time"
Cons: "Sat on tarmac in United plane at destination (Denver) from 2:40 pm to 3:35 pm. Waiting on a gate to unload...just long enough to miss my 3:30 pm United connecting flight. Why couldn’t United have delayed the connecting flight a few minutes knowing we were sitting in another of their planes just a few feet away?"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They delayed so long that I had to reschedule for another day. This is after watching planes to other possible locations take off before United would switch peoples tickets. This was after a 4 hour layover completely disappeared. They should have been able to reroute planes or something after the first 2 hours of delays since it was for a weather phenomena that gives tons of warning (at least 24 hours)."
Cons: "The plane was hot. The pilot forced a landing quickly to be on time, instead of taking his time through rough winds. The plane was very turbulent and the landing was extremely rough. I actually pulled out the "puke bag" and almost needed it."
Pros: "Quick and uneventful flight."
Cons: "My reading light didn't work."
Pros: "Thanks for the free cocktail"
Pros: "I was able to change my seat since mine was all the way in the back. very happy about that."
Pros: "Nice flight attendant"
Cons: "Seat hurt after around three hours"
Cons: "Not enough room!"
Pros: "Boarding was easy crew was pleasant. Shouldn't have to pay extra for tv, ticket prices are high enough as it is!!"
Cons: "No leg room which isn't good for circulation on a 4 hr flight!"
Pros: "Very nice employees. The trip was good. Unfortunately, the plane was delayed for a fueling off load for 45 minutes but it all worked out just fine."
Cons: "NONE"
Pros: "Traveling fast"
Cons: "To pricey"
Cons: "I was informed at check in that I could not bring a carry on bag. Therefore, I had to pay to check my bag. However, all other passengers on the plane brought carry on bags. Then, upon arrival in New Orleans, my bag failed to arrive. My bag was still in Chicago."
Pros: "The flight crew tried to make the best of a bad situation."
Cons: "We paid good money for first class tickets expecting to get a hot dinner meal on the flight so we had not eaten. By the time the flight was allowed to take off, the dinner onb the flight had sat too long and they were not allowed to serve it. They gave us a coupon for $20 buck to eat dinner at San Francisco airport upon arrival but of course no restaurant is open at 2:00 am."
Cons: "Issues with crew delayed the flight. I was further delayed getting to my destination because they forced me to check my bag."
Cons: "Being wedged in the middle seat after two overseas flights and seeing stand-by passengers in isle and window seats in rows ahead of mine... no, I did not appreciate that. In other words, UA is accomodating stand-by passengers before accomodating customers who have purchased tickets. Try sitting in a middle seat after two overseas flights... especially as a tall person with no knee space and a super-uncomfortable seat with the headcushion area reaching only your neck. Those seats were clearly made for folks under 5'8"-5'9"."
Pros: "On time. Comfortable"
Pros: "Friendly"
Cons: "Everything was good"
Pros: "The flight left and arrived on time."
Cons: "United cancelled my flight to Kansas City on short notice, with no explanation and no alternative flight offered."
Pros: "Free movies/TV with an app"
Cons: "Very small plane, felt every bump as well as every passenger that walked by"
Pros: "Online movies and TV"
Cons: "I have arthritis (walk with a cane) and didn't have enough leg room....hated being in a middle seat....and due to that could not stand in flight to stretch legs. Also the crew on the way to New York made sure I had a wheelchair to cross the airport in Chicago and not so in New Orleans...had to make a visit to the emergency room after getting home and be off work for 5 days due to the condition of my leg after the walk across the airport."
Pros: "Nice new comfortable seats"
Pros: "Kind flight attendants and quick early arriving flight"
Cons: "Nothing, everything was food"
Pros: "Wonderful crew, great plane ride."
Pros: "Excellent service!"
Pros: "The crew was polite."
Cons: "The plane was flithy. The crevice between the seat and the wall of the plane was caked with filth. The beverage served was lukewarm water, with no other choices. The plane was uncomfortably hot."
Cons: "The wi fi should be free of charge"
Cons: "The seats were too small no leg room"
Pros: "Crew was excellent. Beyond making sure we were comfortable."
Pros: "Able to pick seat"
Cons: "A little tight"

Pros: "Smooth flight, nice staff, on time"
Cons: "Not enough leg room!!! The new planes cram us in even tighter. Unless you pay more, you suffer. Why should we have to pay more just because we are tall??!! Pocket for book etc is way too small."
Pros: "Left promptly on schedule and arrived on time."
Cons: "Crew cordial but not friendly. Refreshments: I asked for water...flight attendant never asked if I wanted ice and she gave me room temperature water........"
Pros: "Very smooth flight and good seat"
Cons: "Still not in New Orleans"
Pros: "It eventually ended"
Cons: "Spent almost an hour before actually taking off. Terrible service. No"

Pros: "The flight was very short. Loved it"
Cons: "My Ears hurt after the flight was over."
Pros: "Same as above,"
Cons: "Same as above, but no snack was offered, and there was only expansive food for purchase"
Pros: "The flight was short"
Cons: "I absolutely HATE aisle seats. The crew brush pass you putting all of there private body parts on you and they will absolutely run over you with that metal cart. It’s so unprofessional. They brush pass you with their butts, crouch area, and hands all over you. Awful experience"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled, they made us wait at the airport for five hours, kept delaying thirty minutes at a time. Didn't offer another flight out until three days later"
Pros: "The flight crew were Amazing on both flights. Seating was good on the 1St flight, I got the aisle seat, 2nd flight was little cramped “middle seat” I’m 6’3”. The flight was only and hour so not bad. Overall it was good."
Cons: "About 2more inches in the seating for long legged people taller than 5’8”. I’m 6’3”. So pretty cramped if not in an aisle seat."
Pros: "The flight out of MCI was delayed... no employee appeared before the actual loading time..so no one knew what was happening until it was time to Board. When the agents finally arrived they seemed very “disorganized” and confused and did a poor job explaining the delay... and once the gate change was"
Cons: "Continuing... was announced they were rude about explaining the gate change, then no one was at the new gate, was a chaotic mess off people all crowding trying to board, the agent yelled “GET IN ONE LINE!” as if we were all idiots... plane was uncomfortable... I stood up to use the restroom, and a"
Cons: "No cost for carry on bag"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful and funny. We arrived to our destination early!"
Cons: "Seats are not that comfortable."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for 8 hours before ultimately being canceled."
Pros: "Was direct and easy. No issues with boarding or flight"
Cons: "Cramped"
Pros: "Pilots were great. Nice flight experience."
Cons: "Delayed boarding - waiting for paperwork. Annoying"
Pros: "The cost of the flight"
Cons: "The 2.5+ hour delay"
Pros: "Love the flight price!"
Cons: "As expected, everything else is a la carte."
Cons: "Delayed with no reason which costed me more money as I didn’t get home until 3am"
Pros: "The price but after today, I’m going back to “you get what you pay for.”"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 21/2 hours. Was not told ahead of time. We boarded even later then we sat on the tarmac for an hour and a half and we were told that we were #12 in line. An hour later we were told that we were now #15!! Finally off the ground. Flight attendant had a very annoying voice but what made it worse how he kept asking for money because of everyone purchasing. Yes I know but some how on other flights you don’t hear about the money, this was in your face"
Pros: "The plane was clean. The food and drink selection was fabulous, although we didn’t get any because the flight was short and turbulent but good to know for next time."
Cons: "Wish I could check in online and have boarding pass sent to phone or print out myself."
Pros: "The price."
Cons: "Uncomfortable non-reclining seats, inconsistent delay notifications, no audio or visual options on flight."
Cons: "The extra add fees with everything. Also no complimentary beverage or snack"
Cons: "They lost my bag then informed me they don't track their luggage so not only was it lost, they couldn't even tell me where it was. The frontier employee at the airport was awful. Completely unhelpful. The crew on the flight was good but the airplane is uncomfortable with tiny seat trays and zero wifi options. Won't be flying frontier again."
Pros: "No snacks, no movies,...great fare! Flights on time!!"
Cons: "Pay for all snacks. Cup of water free"
Pros: "baggage check-in speedy and efficient, rapid plane boarding and plane left the gate on schedule"
Cons: "A special circle in Dante's Hell should be reserved for the Frontier executives who approved the seat design. The non-reclining seat backs are fairly comfortable, but the seat bottoms appear to have about 1/4 inch of foam padding over a hard shell. Did anybody actually test these things out by sitting in them for over 10 minutes?"
Pros: "Flight was 3 hours delayed. When we arrived at the airport they said it would be delayed by 2 hours. Then right before our new boarding time they delayed it another hour. I wish we would have had some advance notice so we weren't stuck waiting at the airport for 3 hours."
Cons: "Frontier seats are extremely uncomfortable (I would say the worst of any airline) and they charge for carry on luggage and drinks."
Pros: "We were ahead of schedule! Everything was on time or better."
Cons: "Got a little nervous with the sound of the plane before take off but other than that it was an amazing trip to New Orleans."
Cons: "Seats were about 1.5" thick plastic, rigid, with no padding. Felt like a military transport. Advertised as the cheapest fare, but with the luggage addon for carryon and checked - was not the cheapest"
Cons: "The only bright spot was your great crew. First, Frontier doesn't even staff its ticket counter at MCI, so, heaven forbid there's an accident on the highway and we're a couple of minutes late, we can't even get through security. That's beyond annoying. Frontier charges for everything. For seats. For bags. For drinks. For food. So, after a haphazard boarding process and ending up in a middle seat, I flew on a lawn chair. Thankfully, it was a short flight. I enjoyed a tiny cup of water and opted not to spend $2.99 on another beverage. All of that, I knew about in advance and expected. I was thinking "at least my flight was cheap..." At the end, Southwest would have even been cheaper. I also didn't realize Frontier couldn't even be bothered by the basics. For example, opening the door when we arrived in Denver. We were on time. We waited on a gate, which is annoying, but not unusual, but then, after we pulled up to the gate, we waited ANOTHER 15-20 minutes in a roasting hot plane. JUST for someone to open the door to permit us to deplane. One of my fellow passengers quipped: "Are they going to make us pay to get off the plane?" Funny, sarcastic, but a sentiment many of your passengers shared. We finally exited the plane, and I waited on my bags--the ones I'd spent $75 to check. There was no information. No announcement. No update. The supervisor truly didn't even know what was going on. An HOUR AND A HALF later, the supervisor said, "I think your bags are still on the plane. We're short staffed, so another supervisor and I will go help unload them" Seriously? At what point did unloading bags become optional? We finally got our bags, and I'm the one who finally told the supervisor that bags from Kansas City were beginning to arrive. She announced it to the rest of the grumpy crowd. It was much worse with the cranky kids waiting on their strollers and carseats. I fly this route often. I arrived home AFTER I usually do on the much later Southwest and United flights. My fiance and I are traveling back and forth DEN-MCI/MCI-Denver often. We no longer even look at Frontier as an option when booking our tickets"
Pros: "Flight to Philly delayed multiple times arrived at 3 am which was a major inconvenience for my friends. Flight back was cancelled and you are basically left to your own devices to get transportation on your own. Your refund is granted in 7 to 10 days but you need to front the cost for whatever last minute transportation you procure. Nightmare carrier if something goes wrong"
Pros: "I had an average flight. No major issues. My main objective as a direct fight which only this flight offered. $40 checked bag fee. Not aware of any fee for carry-one but guess I need to check my recipets...."
Cons: "I am so upset that I was charged after she put our bag and it fit in spot for baggage. This is just wrong"
Pros: "Frontier is best kept secret ever. I plan to fly with you a lot in the future if the deals continue to be as good as it was for this flight. No hassle checked and carry on baggage fee was really great. I also must boast that the seat selections for me and my wife were outstanding!!"
Cons: "That I had not been hearing much about Frontier for the past several years."
Pros: "Flight was on time, crew was friendly. Had to buy drinks and snacks"
Cons: "You have to pay for carry-on luggage"
Pros: "The price until I had to pay for a carry-on bag"
Cons: "Very few things are appealing about this airline."
Cons: "They changed their seats, less room, less comfortable, tray tables are tiny, they nit pick and charge for EVERYTHING. They purport to be a discount airline, but in reality they're just a money-grubbing company who nickels and dimes their customers while providing a much worse product than they did before. I will not be flying Frontier ever again."
Pros: "That they got me to where I was going with out falling out of the sky."
Cons: "Baggage claim times, accommodations and non-caring attitudes."
Cons: "Couldn't move the seat back at all. Couldn't sleep."
Pros: "I like the convince of the flight."
Cons: "I don't like the fact that we started charging 30 for a carry on. I get it. You get the ticket for cheap and upcharge but charging for the carry on is a way to lose business. I might as well fly spirt at least I know up front that I have to pay for something that's already with me. Very frustrating on a return flight."
Pros: "The chairs in the plane"
Cons: "The fact that they rescheduled a flight but then weren't ready when they said, I understand delays but professionalism is key when not communicating to clients. The fact that they said they'd give a voucher for next flight, yet I'm still waiting on it to get emailed to me, it's been past 48 hours"
Pros: "Friendly and couteous"
Cons: "How the seat selection goes, having to pay more to have a different selection"
Pros: "I like the low fare and the non-stop flight. The low fares made it possible for me to fly to Atlanta, GA, for an emergency, and money wasn't an issue!"
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Got a cheap flight but little did I know that that would be offset by being nickeled and dimed for seats, bags, and drinks. On top of that th plane was five hours late from its start point and the only information the gate agents would give (with an attitude) was the plane was coming. I called customer service to see if they were offering any restitution for this, and I was told that's not up to him. I will never never never fly frontier ever again."
Pros: "The cost was low, so it made the return part of my trip easier to pay for."
Cons: "I had not been prepared for how "no frills' your airline is, so I didn't know to expect rigid chairs with no adjustment, and that all items offered in flight were to be paid for. It wasn't a long flight, so I didn't miss not have a snack or drink, but I didn't know any of that in advance. My fault for not checking into it a little more, but it was a whirlwind trip to move my daughter and the travel was Spartan but necessary."
Pros: "I like the fact that we finally arrived ..that's the only thing positive I can think of"
Cons: "We were delayed three hours coming and going and no one had a clue wha was going on ..when we did board the crew was extremely short and acted irritated to be there"
Pros: "The low price of the fare"
Cons: "1. All the added charges even for a refreshment 2. The obnoxiously loud noises coming from the plane mechanics 3. A group of 5 that were drunk, belligerent, loud, and inappropriate 4. Lack of cleanliness (old tissues & trash stuffed in the seat pocket, trash on the floor, looked like throw up in our aisle-our entire aisle asked to move seats) 5. Stewardess speakerphone so loud It was painful"
Cons: "I didn't like the terrible turbulence which we had on May26th. I know that was not the airlines fault, but it seemed excessive to be on the tarmac for over 2 hours and being over three hours late in getting to the gate. It was the airlines fault that I had to pay $40.00 to check a small bag and that we only got a half cup of water after the long delay."
Pros: "Crew and the general process"
Cons: "Mostly the fact that we had to pay extra to check in!!!!!! Ridiculous! I was trying to check in using the Frontier App on my phone and I had to enter my credit card information. Then we had to pay for seltzer water??!!! Your tray tables are a joke (WAY TOO SMALL). Seats are not very comfortable"
Cons: "You have to pay extra for your seat - if you want to sit with your party and not be scattered all over the plane. You have to pay for your carry on and you have to of course pay for your checked bag. So everything you saved on the cost of the flight is eaten up with the extras."
Cons: "Delayed again longer then they said it would be as well, also their reason was "there's no good reason" awful"
Pros: "The flight departed on time and arrived as scheduled."
Cons: "I'm glad that I arrived safely because that is the one thing I can appreciate. The cheap fares equal the quality of the plane. Only 4 rows of 30 have reclining seats. It would be a stretch to say the seats are padded. The clientele is cheaper than the fare with lots of crying babes and impolite guests running to the door as the plane arrives to the gate."
Cons: "183$ in seating and luggage fees AFTER the base ticket price...I wasn't made aware of these charges until I went to check in for my flight. No leg room. Seats don't recline. Tray table about the size of an iPhone 6. No entertainment. No snacks. All drinks cost money. Rude staff. Just a disaster of an experience. I'll never fly frontier again."
Pros: "Not a whole lot because my experience with kayak went south quickly."
Cons: "After selecting the dates I needed and got set up I realized the your program had an error. The dates selected were not what I chose. It was a nightmare trying to get you guys to resolve this with terrible customer service. I will never use your business again."
Pros: "NA"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled due to weather and I am still waiting on a refund."
Pros: "The Denver people who helped"
Cons: "My brand new suitcase was broken after paying for it to be checked. My clothes and bath bag was on the pick up alone. When it was in my bag. Had to ask for tape to keep it somewhat closed to the rode and hotel. Still no email from frontier !"
Pros: "The actual fare was a bargain"
Cons: "The add on fees were incredible. Pay for a seat, pay for a carry on? Would rather just pay a higher fare and select a seat or zone and have my carry on covered."
