Pros: "Amazing"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Nothing special"
Cons: "That was the most uncomfortable and cramped seat I had ever had on a plane flight. Even sitting on the pillow did not help."

Pros: "Good crew."
Cons: "Very tight spaces. No tv."

Cons: "Not much food offered on a long flight."

Cons: "Flight was delayed out of St. Louis causing several of us to miss our connecting flight from Salt Lake City to Portland. Delta was of very little help in assisting us in making a connecting flight. They could have at least helped with travel arrangements and provided us with a little food, a pillow and a blanket as we waited in their terminal for the next flight on their airline which was a several hour wait. I understand these things happen but the passengers didn't cause the problem and Delta needs to take care of people better if they expect to earn repeat business."

Pros: "Everything ran smoothly on this flight. No delays before, pleasant staff, great entertainment selection, okay food options, working equipment (e.g., tv in the headrest worked, seatbelts worked, lavatories were operational, etc.). This flight met all my expectations"
Cons: "The only hiccup was the wait time on the runway before take off. Not sure if that was the airport’s fault or the airline’s fault. We must have waited 45 minutes."

Cons: "Ac not working at last 30 minutes of flight."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "We lost our whole vacation and had to pay for the plans fare twice because My last name was spelled wrong on our tickets and we were unable to use them because my passport didn’t match the name on the ticket. We had to rebook everything pay almost twice as much for the plane fare, our Lodi g cost more and our trip was delayed for two weeks. Vyama is blaming us for spelling our name wrong and claimes that it’s our fault this happened because everything is automated. There saying they don’t touch anything that we enter into the booking but somehow everything they claim we entered is now in all capital letters and the space between our first name and middle name is now gone and all run together. The coustomer service number gets you to someone in India. I have tried to get this addressed four times now at first they tried to place the responsibility on the airlines now us and they have hung up on me twice. Kayak has been worthless, they also just pass the responsibility on to someone else. We will never use them again ant I intend to make sure that this mess is put out in social media to hopefully keep others from having their travel plans ruined by their flawed system."

Cons: "They changed my flight to a different one departing 2 hours earlier and did not notify me! The original flight was still available & they would not let me take it despite my reservation paper work. CRAZY! I have a two hour drive to the airport this gave me the option to leave home at 2:30am or go the night before and pay for a hotel. Flight was managed by DELTA who also did not care! All involved blamed each other. Beware"

Pros: "I was traveling alone with my (cranky) infant son and the crew members were kind and accommodating. Though the flight was delayed by almost 2 hours, the crew worked quickly to ready the replacement plane and the pilot made up time and got us to San Jose as quickly and safely as possible."
Cons: "The original plane had mechanical issues, which caused an almost two hour delay while waiting for a replacement plane to arrive. Since I was traveling alone with my young son, after an already long previous flight, it made for a more difficult trip."

Cons: "Sat by the exit seat so the door was a bit more chilly. No food. Small entertainment screens with audio bleed through."

Cons: "Was in seat 16A and got bumped to 12E. If you know Delta aircraft, that's exit row window, for the EC (more legroom) but middle. The problem is that nothing can compete with the exit row for leg room and being crammed between two guys isn't an upgrade either. Plus, due to proximity, got sick. And the flight was delayed leaving - due to the late arrival from ATL (Delta HQ) which had a power outage. And no video entertainment. No meals."

Pros: "As always, the crew and amenities were first rate."
Cons: "We were initially told that our flight would arrive early. Then we sat on the tarmac for a half hour before anyone could be bothered to tell us we were waiting for the plane to be de-iced."

Pros: "On time arrival"
Cons: "Small aircraft. Loud engine noise. Biased treatment for tickets booked on non Delta sites"

Pros: "No vegetarian options in first class.. and go go wouldn5 hook up. Flight was an hour late...but that was ok."
Cons: "The pilot did a nice job of flying in and banking so we could see the view.."

Pros: "In flight movies"
Cons: "The flight was 3 hours late taking off which made us miss our connection to chicago so we are stuck in Atlanta tonight with unplanned expenses we were not planning on!"

Cons: "They delayed the flight for 11 hours and did let anyone know until after 4 hours of waiting and then the gate number for the new flight was wrong"

Pros: "Almonds"
Cons: "Seat, did not get upgraded"

Pros: "Very friendly crew"
Cons: "Seatbelts very short given ample seat size"

Pros: "Fast and comfortable"
Cons: "No tv but understanding"

Pros: "Everything from the check-in to the landing was great. We were well informed about what was going on with out luggage (we were on a regional flight) and the assortment of free snacks were superb! I guess I'll be a returning customer"
Cons: "I was expecting some form of entertainment (radio, overhead monitor, etc) on the CRJ700. But it really don't take away from the experience since T-Mobile partnered with the Wi-Fi service and I received a free hour of Wi-Fi!"

Pros: "Crew was curious and quick to think of alternative solutions."
Cons: "The flight was way too hot. They didn't have enough A/C and we were all sweating up a storm on the flight. The flight was also scheduled to leave 15 min early, but we ended up leaving 15 minutes late, it was odd. One of the bathrooms was out of order too."

Cons: "Smooth"

Cons: "My flight got to New York so late!!!! I missed my international flight."

Pros: "The flight was very on-time and it reached the destination even earlier than expected."

Cons: "Not great communication from gate or staff on board. Failed to provide adequate water. No ice on super warm flight. Just bad experience overall."

Pros: "I will know more on my flight back to my destination!"

Pros: "Flight was smooth and leg room great"
Cons: "A flight of four hours should have decent food. Too short connection times and inconsistent restaurants in the airports often leave me very hungry. Give us real healthy food onboard."

Pros: "The turkey sabdwhich was tasty. Good movies."
Cons: "Telling me the doors were going to close & I couldn't use the restroom prior to boarding. Here I was starving from flight delays. In reality the door stayed open another 15 mins & people boarded with their to go food."

Cons: "No trash bag in my seat for puking or bubblegum"

Pros: "Spacious, clean, great host and hostesses. The flight arrived at our destination 30 minutes early."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Newer plane! Comfortable"
Cons: "Nothing just great"

Pros: "Comfortable plane"
Cons: "Travelled with some guys straight out of the Hangover movies. Going to Vegas for a Bachelor party and ogling and making comments on the flight attendant and other passengers! Nothing delta can do about that, It's part of life..."

Cons: "Not enough water on the flight and we landed in a parking lot and shuttled back to the airport."

Pros: "We didnt have food or entertainment because the flight was short."
Cons: "There was nothing that I didn't like."

Cons: "Poor leg room compared to jet blue"

Pros: "Comfortable seating and clean interior. Flight attendants are helpful and courteous."
Cons: "Flight takeoff delayed one hour. Boarding has zoning, but with no structural boarding process, resulted some later zoning customers blocking earlier zoning customers in a single line. Suggest using multiple labeled queue lines, like southwest."

Pros: "Got an upgrade to Comfort + Delta is the best major airline in USA for sure"

Cons: "2 of my 4 bags, which I checked in, were broken during my travel."

Cons: "after reaching the destination, it took a lot to open the airplane's doors and letting people out"

Cons: "turbulance"

Pros: "I was cleared for standby! Flight attendant at the stl gate is always friendly and willing to help! I love her!"
Cons: "I waited almost 6 hours on the phone the night before the flight to get on standby! Almost didn't get the flight! Was charged $50 only to not get on my next flight because it was over booked! Flight attendant was very rude!"

Pros: "the aircraft was fine. leg room was slightly larger than other commercial flight i took recently."
Cons: "the crew at the boarding counter was unhelpful. my girlfriend and i were rescheduled to a later flight and were randomly assigned to 2 separate seats. online seat selecting did not work at all."

Pros: "I liked that I was able to get able to get an earlier flight!"
Cons: "I don't like that I had to pay $50 extra dollars for standby on both legs of my flight! I am a very loyal delta customer and these past times flying I feel like my favorite airline is turning into the bad airlines delay everytime, problems with the plane fare prices too high! I'm starting to think about taking my business elsewhere!"

Pros: "10 minutes early departure"
Cons: "There isn't enough seats in the gate area and sitting on the runway for 10 extra minutes we could have been early"

Pros: "Awesome service in first."

Pros: "The fight was delayed but they gave us complimentary drinks on the flight. Nice."

Pros: "On time flight. Comfort seats"

Cons: "I was surrounded by a basketball team. They all have terrible breath. I know that because they kept talking to each other and I was in the middle (literally) of it all. Thanks Delta airlines!"

Pros: "Seat uncomfortable. I am an elite flier and was put in an n uncomfortable middle seat with no choice."
Cons: "Seat should with choice."

Cons: "4 hour plane availability delay - of course planned on weather but not planning"

Pros: "We got to our destination safely, and American provided us with extra legroom seats."
Cons: "Service was curt and there was only phone-based entertainment."

Pros: "The pilot was great. Avoided turbulence and arrived about 20min early. Easy to find seat and stow bag. Smooth takeoff and landing."
Cons: "Alaska airlines was who I thought I was riding with but the itinerary changed past min. Gate change and the airline itself was changed. Really confusing since I printed my boarding pass the night before."

Pros: "The flight was what one would expect from a domestic airline. They did provide free movies/tv which was nice. It was one time to leave and on time to arrive."

Pros: "nothing horrible flight"
Cons: "This was almost a six hour flight there were no televisions available the flight was oversold and there were people on standby there was very little Lego room we were only offered snacks and drinks the crew was stressed we left late because we were instructed to check our carry-ons but that was not enforced until people were already on the plane getting on the plane and getting off the plane took a very long time there was very little leg room it was difficult to move around the plane because it was such a small plane the crew was very stressed out. I am very upset about this flight and will not fly with American ever again."

Pros: "Boarding process was smooth and fast"
Cons: "Do you think airline management sits around boardrooms to brainstorm ways to torture its passengers more? The seats and the leg room are ridiculous. It's gotten to much worse recently."

Pros: "I was so happy I could check in online and boarding was a breeze. I actually got to sit by the window when my original seat was in the middle. So nice of the ladies to suggest it to me."
Cons: "No complaints"

Pros: "The airplane was new. It had power plug and entertainment at each seat. It has a fabulous selections of entertainment for all ages. Comfortable seats as well."

Cons: "Movie kept freezing up. So did Sodoku game."

Cons: "I wish they have two sheets. I don't like to sit next to stranger. And hard to go to bathroom"

Pros: "I loved the extra room in the seating, great seats too. Plus the personal TVs and movie selection was fantastic!!! However, 1/3 of the planes TVs did not work. Luckily, my row of TVs did work and we had an empty seat between my daughter and me , so when my son's TV went out he sat in my row which did work. Great plane, once everything is fixed!"

Cons: "No power outlets or USB ports on a 5+ hour flight. Not great for business."

Pros: "Comfort, snacks, boarding process"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "The seat pockets were decent, though I like when the magazines have their own designated slot behind the tray in addition to a pocket. Also good there were power outlets. I liked that they didn't skip row numbers, including 13. So if you're in row 22, for example, you know that's literally how many rows back you are."
Cons: "It took 25 minutes from when plane landed until it reached the gate. There was also apparently an issue with the auxiliary power -- the lights went out in back half of plane when we arrived at gate. I prefer having a screen behind each seat, rather than those attached to ceiling on this flight, so that the entertainment can be customized."

Pros: "Everything went smoothly"

Pros: "The flight was delayed by more than two hours which caused us (me, wife, 4yo, and 7mo) to miss our connection from LAX to HNL. We had to stay the night in LA and take a morning flight to HNL. But despite the delay, the gate agent in Charlotte did a good job of updating people and remained very polite even when it was clear people were getting frustrated and starting to get sharp with him. Pilots did a good job of trying to make up as much time as possible. I can't remember how much time they shaved off but I think it was more than 20 minutes. Customer service in LA was solid too. Went to CSD to get our tickets changed. They had already changed our flight to a 8 AM flight. We asked if we could take a later flight because of the kids and he was able to accommodate. They also gave us vouchers for 3 meals and a night at the Holiday Inn. Having a delayed flight is never fun but the AA staff was amazing throughout."

Pros: "excellent from ticketing to depaning"

Cons: "Ssd"

Pros: "I like américain airline"
Cons: "I don't like the transfer between the aéroport it take long time plus I pay the ticket for the bus when I ask British crew they sad is free. And I arive to my second fly in last minute.clise to miss the flight"

Pros: "I loved that they gave us a pillow and a blanket for travel. They also had free on screen entertainment with some of the best movies on there to watch and even provided free earphones if you did not have any."
Cons: "Nothing, I loved it all."

Pros: "Flight from Lax to Lihue. Very comfortable, crew enjoyable entertainment with options"
Cons: "Everything about the flight from.Boston to Lax"

Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "No food or beverage service"

Pros: "The new clean plane. The pilot and crew were great."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Great attendants excellent customer service"
Cons: "Awful TSAs"

Pros: "Rebooked before we got inside"
Cons: "Landed early but were left on the taxi way for nearly an hour while the gate wasn't ready. The first gate had a plane at it with "mechanical issues". Then it took about 30 minutes to get a different gate. Why do they give short layovers when their performance is not stellar?"

Pros: "Staff was friendly"

Pros: "Comfort in business class. Service was excellent."
Cons: "2nd meal choices were very limited."

Pros: "The different variety of movies that was shown as well as the usb port."
Cons: "No free wifi, more meals, and more drinks."

Pros: "Love the direct flights from RDU to West Coast. Wish there were more cities on the list. The flight was delayed about 45 minutes after we boarded for take off. I hate sitting on planes idling. The seats are already uncomfortable, then add more time onto that to sit. But we made up the time in the air for an on time arrival. Hmmmm?"
Cons: "For a 5 hour flight at dinner time and then the 3 hour time change, the snacks provided are not enough. You just have to remember to bring food on the plane and then risk annoying your fellow passengers with the food/dinner dining space. More checks of drinks would be nice too. Cost cutting measures, but minimal considering a packed flight and pretty high ticket price."

Pros: "Snacks, meals, movies"
Cons: "Too squishy Flight attendant didn't give us a card to fill out for customs. She just walked right by quickly without asking."

Cons: "Baggage claim process way too long. Took 1hr to get off plane."

Cons: "I despise Heathrow. I'll only go there or use an airline there as a last resort."

Cons: "The flight was delayed 9 hours for mechanical issues and they were not able to do anything. Since booking with Kayak neither Alaska airlines or American Airlines would help in getting us an earlier flight and both airlines said they couldn't help after repeated calls. Won't be booking any American Airlines flights throug Kayak again."

Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "N/A"

Cons: "good"

Cons: "Lax arrival delayed"

Pros: "I appreciated the fact that I kept getting flight delay updates...."
Cons: "I purchased the earliest flight of the day from Vegas to Los Angeles so I could be in LA by 11am so I could attend the 1pm Dodger game at dodger stadium... ( I specifically flew into lax for the game that I spent $100 on tickets for) well I arrived to LAS at 5am by 515am I received my first notification that my flight wouldn't be leaving until 1030am.... I was a little annoyed but hey I'm still going to make it to my game, ( I just needed to let my ride know who's lives 3 hours away from LA that my flight was going to be 3 hours late not to rush) well about an hour later I got another notification that my flight was now being pushed back to 230pm.... at this point I have no choice but to look for another flight.... I found another flight on Southwest leaving Las at 1210pm arriving in lax at 120pm... perfect I can still make my game... That flight was boarding on time... ran into some hiccups on the runway... arrive to lax at 130pm... not a problem can still make my game... sat on the runway at lax until 335.... needless to say I missed the game... while in the air I received another text that my American airline flights was now pushed back to 530pm... mind you my day started at 5am on Las Vegas to catch a flight out at 720am.... Now had I not found that other flight I would have been sitting around Vegas airport for over 12 hours.... I was not a happy flier today, specially because the actual flight is normally no more than 45 minutes start to finish... I could have rented a car and drove... would have been cheaper and I would have made it to my game ...."

Cons: "Poorly food and problems at the check in, although my documents were all in order. Also, we also missed our flight because of the security, who double checked for nothing. Was very very stressful, i will think twice next time before choosing to fly with BA. Check in online wasn t possible."

Pros: "We bought the extra legroom. Worth it."

Pros: "The flight was delayed for 2 hours. That's not human."
Cons: "After the 2 hours delay, I had to take a shuttle that took forever to get to the terminal that has my suitcase."

Cons: "Everything was great."

Pros: "The flight itself was smooth and quiet"
Cons: "The delay was to accommodate other passengers, but we sat in the airport for hours. AA's communication about the situation was poor, at best, the staff was tired and cranky, and there was no effort to make sure that we were not inconvenienced."

Pros: "Food, flight plan on the screen, selection of music and movies, that the lights were turned down for sleep, quiet efficiency of the crew"

Pros: "Liked having an exit row seat, appreciated being given a full can of soda, and loved the in-flight entertainment options as I was able to watch two recently released movies."

Pros: "Roomy legroom and proximity to the restroom"
Cons: "There is limited recline."

Cons: "The wifi wasn't very good so I couldn't access the in flight entertainment I also had my own snacks so I didn't buy any food"

Cons: "My itinerary said 12pm departure from Sydney to Los Angeles. However, the departure time was 10:15am, and not on Qantas airlines, but on American. It was luck I found out about the changed time. Also, since the airline changed, it took extra time to find the correct counter to check-in."

Pros: "Great crew, comfortable aircraft"
Cons: "snacks were wimpy"

Cons: "A little more shoulder room and a spot where I can charge my phone on flight to be able to watch a movie."

Pros: "Crew was friendly, helpful and very competent. Flight arrived early. Regular notification/reminder via SMS on flight status. Comfortable seats, generous seat pitch."
Cons: "For a three-hour international flight, and at that ticket price, substantial snacks should be complimentary. In Asia, flights of three hours or more on legacy carriers have proper inflight food. Low cost carriers sell food; but UA is not LCC."

Pros: "The crew between Newark and Los Angeles were phenomenal,"
Cons: "The seats were quite narrow"

Cons: "25 people aprox loose the connecting flight"

Pros: "Staff always amazing."
Cons: "No Wi-Fi available."

Cons: "No ear buds for sale or offered. No charger plug ins in the seat"

Cons: "We arrived to one terminal and no one says that the next flight was in tom bradley terminal. After asking on the way, I realized that had to walk more than 35 minutes. No transfer service, no info, nothing. Finally after reach tom bradley terminal, the ANA staff said that they was very delayed and wanted to change my flight."

Cons: "Sat on the runway way too long. Hot. Cramped plane"

Pros: "Quick boarding, departed on time, arrived early, good cabin communication"
Cons: "This is a very cramped commuter jet, just one flight attendant to serve entire plane, she came by once for drinks but not a second time"

Pros: "Crew was extremely friendly."
Cons: "Temperature was way too warm."

Pros: "professionalism"
Cons: "At boarding/check-inn there was inly one young women to handle the crowd of passengers boarding. She was over worked, but did real welll!!!"

Cons: "in the last row battling for share if the armrest."

Pros: "New planes were more comfortable and I love the entertainment being free and with own devices"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "No meal on business, no free internet, no entertainment"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "That my flight got delayed in Denver over an hour and I missed my flight from LA to BJX because of that. I was suppose to land in BJX At 6am on Friday April 28th for a family emergency and now my next flight isn't till 1pm! This is the worst flight experience I have ever had in my life. Never in my life will I ever fly with united again. My plans got ruined, I was forced to sleep on the cold dirty floor of LAX. This cost me a lot of time and money, and I am upset about it. I will tell all my peers about this horrible experience and encourage them to never fly with united ever again. I do expect some sort of compensation over this horrible experience."

Pros: "All services where very good from check in to arrival In L.A."
Cons: "There wasn't anything I didn't like."

Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "The aircraft was super HOT and the seats were smaller than any plane i have ever been on. there was zero leg room available."

Pros: "The Stroopwaffle"
Cons: "The hour delay"

Pros: "It was a good flight and for a great prize"

Pros: "No big incident, was offered a small bag of pretzels, complimentary."
Cons: "Seats have uncomfortably small spacing."

Pros: "United is very reputable airline with great pilots and safety record. Prior to leaving for Mexico, the plane was examined amd found a 'mechanical issue'. All of the passengers were immediately switched to a different airplane. The safety of the airline and the pocedures used to ensure the craft was 100% was very comforting."
Cons: "I was bothered by the fee to check in 1 bag and the lack of food and ebtertainment upon the return flight from Mexico to Los Angeles. During the entire 4 hour flight, passengers were offered a bag of chips and nothing else, not even for purchase. Thus particular plane didn't have any screen for entertainment. I was most bothered by the baggage fee of $50 ($25 each way ) because the ticket price doesnt reflect an airline that charges for necessary things."

Pros: "I enjoyed the speedy boarding process"
Cons: "The flight was over booked. Very crowded and when we arrived in Los Angeles we sat on the runway for over an hour"

Cons: "Left my Kindle on the plane. It has yet to be returned/found."

Pros: "nice flight attendancts"

Pros: "There was a lot of space and a quick departure."
Cons: "When we got to LA event though we were early we had to wait. I know its not the airlines fault but it sucked."

Cons: "No entertainment at all?"

Pros: "Enough space."
Cons: "Ground staff was racist. Standards vary depending ur color. Specially at Heathrow. Ask personal question loudly."

Pros: "refund"
Cons: "Hour delay that made me miss my connecting flight. Customer service agent, Theresa, at the United gate was more interested in checking her cell phone text messages & handing out $10 food vouchers than the long of people who have conflicts with connecting flights or missing events in the destination they were flying to. Every minute lost could prevent customers from obtaining another immediate or comparable flight to their destination. Customer service agent sent those who were going to have problems with their connecting flights to the United Airlines service desk, of which, there were no customer service agents at any of the four available stations. I waited 10 minutes for an agent & no one arrived. When I went back to the original line I was standing in, I was forced to go to the back of the line rather than the place I was originally standing. Therefore I waited in line an additional 20-30 minutes. Once I was served they did not have any more seats available on direct flights to Melbourne. They wanted me to fly to NY, then Sydney & then Melbourne. Additionally the customer service agent did not seem confident this flight was not going to have any hiccups. Worst of all, I had been planning this trip for months & it was ruined by United Airlines."

Cons: "Luggage compartment too small even for a rolling laptop bag"

Pros: "I like the seats and the leg space .they were very comfortable ."
Cons: "No comment"

Cons: "The most unpleasant crew we have ever had in our flying lives. Rude, condescending, treating passengers as if we are not human. Lufthansa should carefully examine their customer treatment training."

Pros: "That i got home safely."
Cons: "4 5 Hour delays accompanied by apologies with a $10 expired food vouchers."

Cons: "Flight was delayed by over 2 hours. Then halfway through the boarding process there was a glitch in the system and I believe that they lost the seat reservations, which delayed us even further."

Pros: "The flight attendants gave stellar service, especially the ones from Hawaii !!! I wasn't feeling very well and they noticed and checked up on me and made sure I was hydrated and got something to make me feel better. (I was so grateful to have a mom~type take care of me, on a long flight.) Thank You!!!"
Cons: "The lack of space - in the isles AND in between the seats in front of us. Anytime the person in front of me wanted to recline their seat, it made it hard for me to even get out and go to the bathroom. That was not pleasant."

Pros: "Brought us safe to Hawaii and back home home."
Cons: "My brother accidentally left his passport, ring and chain inside the plain which was very expensive and he called after he noticed he didn't have it with him. He left it inside of the pocket holder of the seat on the plain where the magazine are. He called and was told nothing was there. On our way back home, the flight was delayed 3 1/2 hours behinds. At no moment did the co pilot excused himself nor did he apologized for the the delay. We deserved at least a free meal or some kind of compensation. Instead, the pilot and flight attendants just told us to rich it because we had to leave to L.A! We (8) family members came and this includes an elderly person (my mother who has been fighting cancer for about 2 years, along with diabetes) came to see her grandaughter get married. Now they were rushing her as well? Uncalled for. Now my other brother and his family which was a party of 10 on another flight, also flew to Hawaii. Now that alone tells you how much money was spent. The stay in Hawaii was amazing! We would visit again but the way we were treated on this airline, I don't think we would fly again and choose this airline. To be honest, not even recommend it. I'm ashamed to let others know such as friends and co workers know of this airline's service. To top it off one flight attendant was very rude! She saw us when she handed the other passengers pretzels and skipped my mother, my sister and I. I asked her nicely if we may have some and told her she had skipped us. She said, "I did?" Came back with 6 bags of thenm and was like, "Here!" Like shoving them to me. I felt humiliated! I didn't say anything because I didn't want to embarrass her. But it was extremely rude!!! I read some reviews and I guess it's normal on your end to be the way you treat your customers. We even asked before abording from Hawaii to L.A, what can you do to make up for all this and we were told, "nothing could". So ashamed."

Pros: "Rain delayed our take off but most of the time was made up. No complaints!"
Cons: "Forced to check our carry on suitcase even though there was plenty of room above the seats."

Pros: "Great crew, very efficient boarding"
Cons: "Not much that could be helped. Short flight, very turbulent on takeoff and landing. Getting stuck in front of a kid who kept dropping her tray table open and slamming it shut wasn't fun, but I know United isn't responsible for someone else's sucky parenting. And when did the leg room shrink???"

Pros: "Gate personnel were great."

Pros: "I liked the new movies. Lots of movie selections. Friendly flight crew."
Cons: "Flight was a little bumpy at times, and flight was also delayed 1 hr."

Pros: "The seats were mostly comfortable (although extremely cramped), pillows and blankets were provided. I liked the one free thing offered; ability to follow the planes progress on my iPhone."
Cons: "All of the screens on the side of the cabin I sat in did not work so even if we chose to pay the ridiculous fees for content it wasn't an option. Charging $16 for internet is gouging to the extreme. Truthfully, I would choose to pay a little more for my ticket if I knew that United did not cram people in like sardines, provided good quality free internet, provided free video content (on consoles that worked), and provided a small snack (better than a little wafer)."

Cons: "When i came back to my country everything was ok until i got my credit details and i saw that your receptionist stole money from my card. I should have pay for an exstra suitcase 60 dollars so i gave the receptionist my credit card. Yesterday I got my credit details i saw an extra charge of 400 hundred dollars !!! I am so mad and im waiting for you to cancel it and recompense. I hope it will be soon before i involve a layer and require you. My phone number is +97224518838."

Cons: "Flight was an hour delayed and I was never told the reason.. There was no enough of the beverage I wanted to be given just one can of juice.."

Pros: "I was able to bring on my musical instruments."
Cons: "Coach was very tight"

Cons: "Internet didn't work on the plane"

Pros: "The attendant at the boarding counter was very helpful."
Cons: "As we are flying international and had a single itinerary, They didn't allow two checked in baggage's inspite of repeatedly explaining them that we have to take connecting flight which allows two checked in baggage's for each person."

Pros: "Getting off the plane, away from the airline, and their disregard of customer service."
Cons: "My flight being canceled after a three hour delay, waiting in the customer service line until four in the morning, sleeping in the airport, and having my luggage lost for nearly a week. I will never fly United again."

Cons: "Flight was cancelled from LAX to SD."

Cons: "Flight delayed 2 hours! Seats don’t recline in coach!!"

Cons: "We arrived very late due to the airline being run so poorly. Something about paperwork according to the pilot. Now the rental car company is closed so I have to sleep at the airport and wait till the budget opens again in the morning. Frontier should put me up in a hotel as their mismanagement caused the delay not the weather. But they just said too bad because the flight was less than 4hours late. Frontier - never again!!!- plus the seats are painful"

Pros: "a bit better, the flight was only half full so it made the experience more enjoyable overall."
Cons: "Kinda annoying they are always trying to upsell."

Pros: "Very cheap"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable no elbow room or leg room and the chairs are hard."

Pros: "The staff that handled baggage was nice. Also, I liked that we made it safe."
Cons: "My flight was supposed to leave at 3:50...I got to the airport and went through security before I found out that my flight was delayed until 7:30. The flight kept getting pushed back. I waited 8 hours before the flight took off. There no outlets anywhere...leaving customers at a disadvantage because with our delay, our electronics were all almost dead or dead. There were no food options. We were supposed to get a voucher, and I have not received it. Lastly, after waiting over 8 HOuRS, we still had to pay for snack and drink. I was ripped off and will not be flying with Frontier again."

Pros: "My only good then was that I had wonderful passengers around me that were conversationalists who were entertaining and helpful!!"
Cons: "Can't you learn how to communicate faca to face with people? Let us know personally why we keep getting held up for take off, why we are being left in the dark, andehy you can't schedule more accurately! It doesn't help to fly somewhere if you miss the event you went to attend! Try compensating for our inconveniences for a change!!!!"

Cons: "Loudness And over priced EVERYTHING"

Pros: "new jet. enough leg room (i'm male, 5-10). Overhead bins are normal size (can hold typical carry on), not the microscopic ones. Everything was on time."
Cons: "STL ticket counter was only staffed 2 hours before the flight -- which makes sense if they didn't have more flights, but the signs weren't big and complete enough for passengers to realize what was going on and how we would check our luggage. So we were standing around a bit confused. Once Frontier people showed up, it was fine. Also, coming back to STL, I had a 2 hr shuttle bus ride that was leaving 30 minutes after arrival, and although the plane arrived on time, the luggage didn't reach me until 37 minutes after, so I had to get a hotel room for the night. I don't know how luggage handling works, so maybe not Frontier's fault at all. 30 minutes isn't much time, but it was a direct flight, so I thought it would work."

Pros: "Friendly on time service"
Cons: "Baggage fees"

Pros: "We landed safely"
Cons: "The flight crew was atrocious. They were rude when they spoke to us and when I asked for refreshments they turned around as if to get them for me and then the lady sitting next to my husband had to get their attention again to ask a second time if I could have water and Chex Mix so I could take my medicine. I have serious health conditions and I couldn't even get water without paying $3 a bottle. It is disgusting to me that we are charged for flight and then charged for Refreshments during that flight. Any other Airline who charges for a seat to take you to your destination includes at least drinks and nuts for free but not you."

Pros: "I got where I was going to."
Cons: "One zone isn't even through the door and the next zone is called and all we do is stand in the very hot jetway for nearly 15 minutes. Being charged to pick our seat and for our luggage is ridiculous. It should be included in the price, if you have to raise the price then at least people would know better the true cost of their travel. Being charged for a drink! Having $1.99 put on a credit card! Wrong."

Cons: "You charge extra for everything."

Pros: "Left on early and arrived early."
Cons: "Not very comfortable seats. Should be able to get water at least."

Cons: "Seats were as uncomfortable as detailed in earlier reviews. The Flight to Las Vegas was delayed due to weather, fair enough, updates on the status were non existent. Let the people who have paid know what their flight status is. The flight home was on time, HOWEVER, it too OVER 1 hour before bag return carrousel even started moving. This is why I gave a low crew rating. The in-flight crew was good, but the ground crew fails."

Cons: "It costs to carry on a bag on Frontier. When booking the flight we were looking for a reasonable price which we found with frontier, not reading the fine print they charged us for carry on bags. We ended up checking bags which cost us another $140. Along with this frustration, the seats are horribly uncomfortable and the amount of leg room is ridiculous. I understand maximizing out seats but this was way over the top. I will not be flying Frontier again"

Pros: "Awesome"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight was delayed. Frontier could have cared less"

Pros: "Comfortable seats, great staff, easy boarding directions. Overall great flight."

Pros: "The price"
Cons: "The extra cost for everything including picking your seat"

Pros: "Cheap"
Cons: "EVERTYHING is an added on cost, no frills, cramped,"

Cons: "New streamlined seats were very uncomfortable for a 2.5 hour flight, not much cushioning."

Pros: "The crew was kind and helpful. We got a very good price on our tickets."
Cons: "The seats were not very comfortable, and they did not recline. The tray tables were super miniature. The lady next to me knocked her cup of ice off of the tray twice because it was so small. Two of the three reading lights did not work in my row, and we had had the same problem on the first leg of our flight too."

Pros: "Friendly staff, large plane, cheap fare. I researched all the potential additional fees before my flight. Do your homework. It was a cheap, direct flight at a good time. I chose not to have a carry on, and I packed snacks for myself."

Cons: "The flight may be inexpensive, but the add on costs to book a seat and carry on a bag were ridiculous. Also, I didn't like that there wasn't a complimentary food or drink item. The line to check my bag was also extremely long and slow and they should have had more staff working."

Cons: "No food."

Pros: "Crew was personable, and captain had a sense of humor. The flight was underbooked, so I had an entire row to myself, which was nice since there's very little elbow or leg room on frontier flights anymore."
Cons: "Somehow, the passenger across the aisle from from me was vaping marijuana. There was no flame, but the odor was unmistakable, and there was smoke. Crew either didn't see or chose to ignore. We landed 10 minutes late (I'm assuming because of snow at arrival destination) and waited another 15 minutes at the gate for the passenger boarding bridge to connect to the cabin."

Pros: "New plastic molded seats on the Airbus are much more comfortable than the old style seats. Flight cost was a bargain."
Cons: "Although the cost to book the flight was cheap, the costs added up with seat booking fee plus bag fees plus a charge for any drinks except water. No more freebies."

Pros: "We love flying Southwest and the freedom of it has become our gold standard. HATED: Baggage fees Narrow seats Charges for CARRYONS...REALLY??? And the deal-breaker for us... That will be $1.99 for your (mediocre) cup of coffee, please. Oh, yes...and the flexibility of Southwests no cancellation penalty... PRICELESS! Thanks for asking."

Cons: "The seats were not very comfortable. You have to pay for carry-on and checked luggage. Then you have to pay for water. Might as well have use a different airline and payed a little more. The price of water and luggage would make up the difference."

Pros: "The price was good. Boarding was relatively painless and quick. The plane appeared to be new and was pretty clean. We were on time and even a little early."
Cons: "The woman behind the counter in St Louis was not friendly. I prefer to be able to use my TSA pre check status rather than wait in a security line for 30 minutes but for whatever reason Frontier does not offer that luxury."

Pros: "Your baggage policy is ridiculous and i might add a regressive fee inherently unfair. A single mother of 6 traveling to her mothers funeral will be hit harder by this than a business traveler. Many of us on the lower end of the income scale carry on to save what can be used on groceries pr heat. Yoir counter staff are also peremptory and rude. I will now factor these additional costs into your supposed fares you sjow online. Likely i will find other airlines are actually better deals. do you really think uoir cusyomers ste thos stupid? We know ur showing low fares and making it up w fees!"

Cons: "Delayed departure from 7AM to announced "possible" 12:30PM. Delay reportedly caused by "flight crew having timed-out" leaving our plane without a crew in Las Vegas. This very long delay made my trip unfeasible, forcing me to cancel my trip entirely, and my wife, having to shorten her stay in Florida by three days."

Cons: "seat fee; carry-on bag fee. When I buy tickets, I should have the right to know what my full cost will be, Sorry, I Am not an experienced flyer, but all the unknown add-on charges will make me loo a lot closer at ticket pricing on my next trip."

Pros: "NOTHING."
Cons: "The service was very poor. From the airport Frontier employees to the the flight attendants. There is an additional fee and charge for everything. My flight was delayed for 2 1/2 hours and upon boarding we still sat in the aircraft for an additional 45 min -1 hour wait! NEVER AGAIN."

Cons: "Cash not accepted for on flight beverages"

Pros: "Boarding and arrival were right on time."
Cons: "No complementary drink or snack on the flight. Baggage fees were much higher than industry average."

Cons: "Don't be fooled! Their flights seem cheap, until you take the flight and they charge you for every little thing- checked bags ($25 each), carry on bag($$35!!), seat ($16, and no, there are NO FREE seats. They even charge you for a soda on the flight- no complimentary soda/juice). By the time it was all said and done, it would have been cheaper to take almost any other airline."

Cons: "Flight was cancelled due to mechanical reasons and no alternative was provided."

Pros: "The seats were clean."
Cons: "The ticket counter did not open until 1 hour before my flight was supposed to board. Although I knew my flight was delayed, the agent at the counter said nothing. Additionally they charge for everything, from your bag to water on the flight. The price is cheap, but not worth the hustle or inconvenience."

Pros: "Boarding was quick"
Cons: "Messed up name on ticket had to call to have changed (would have been charged online to do so) Only saw flight attendant once This airline really nickel&dimes you. Tickets cheap but you pay for absolutely anything you may need. If you travel with absolutely nothing than this airline may be good for you. This is my second time with frontier had poor to okay experiences both times, will avoid this airline in the future."

Pros: "it was a direct flight. It was the only carrier with a direct flight. The plane arrived with no difficulty."
Cons: "The Frontier website was misleading. On check in it asked to pick a seat assignment, which were charged additional money for. I tried to undo the seat assignment (after I went and read their policy that it was optional.) So the website is fixed, that it can not be changed. So I called Frontier and after a 45 minute hold time was told options (seat assignment) can not be changed and I had to pay for it. This added $24 each way for a total of $48 additional charge. Also only a small carry on allowed. so that added an additional charge of $30. The seats don't recline even a little bit. as it was an Airbus and not a Boeing plane. not as comfortable as Boeing. Less padding in seat also."

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "poor accommodations of the disabled rude staff No ADA accessibility over priced "a-la-carte" style of upcharging"

Pros: "Very disappointing - $45 to carry on a bag or $40 to check? Wish I would've paid the extra $100 to fly SW, Delta, United, ETC. The trays were 1/4 size of an iPad. You have to pay for a soda, water, or any beverage. The seats were small, uncomfortable, and didn't recline."

Pros: "Seating was comfortable and ticketing crew were very friendly!"
Cons: "Check-in process is cumbersome! No online boarding pass, the fact that you have to pay for Carry-on and pretty much any seat that you pick, brings the cost the on-par with others! Don't think I will fly frontier again."

Cons: "No snacks, not comfortable at all, overpriced, yhere wasn't a significant amount of savings because I paid to carry on my bag, no snacks and not comfortable!"

Pros: "There was a lot of things that i didn't like but the crew made me forget about all the bad things. Amazing crew and funny just maid everyone smile and laugh. Without this crew i think i would have hatted my flight but they made it worth it."

Pros: "Airport staff were nice, friendly and very apologetic."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 3 hours yet we were encouraged to arrive at our original time just in case the flight was moved up, which it wasn't, so it made for 5 long hours in the airport. Once on the plane the stewardess were less than friendly, at one point shhh'ing people."

Pros: "The best part is the direct flights to where I am going at decent prices. However, it comes at a cost."
Cons: "Wow. Each trip I take, they seem to have sat in a meeting and asked themselves, how can I make the passengers more uncomfortable. Charge for baggage? Check. Charge for a dedicated seat to ensure you aren't stuck in the middle? Check. Remove the recline feature from all seats? Check. The thing that really killed me though was their "new and improved" seat trays. Instead of the already too small tray on other airlines, they have cut the tray literally in half. All it could possibly hold is a drink. No laptop, no book...Really, were the savings that great over the life of the plane that this was a good buy? The only plus is you have a reason why you weren't able to get any work done on a plane..."

Pros: "This was the only direct flight I found to Cancun which is a big plus. The price appeared cheap and I had recently flown on Frontier on a package trip booked through Funjet Vacations so was aware that seats are small, not well padded, do not recline at all and have the world's smallest tray for your beverages."
Cons: "When I checked in I discovered that we would have to pay $30-35 for checked or carry on bags each way! Only if you are booked through Apple or Fun Jet are you allowed one free checked bag so beware! This increased the cost by at least $60 per person if you can keep it down to just one bag per person. Also, there are not any complimentary drinks, you will be charged for everything. Lastly, my TS-pre check status doesn't matter since Frontier does not participate."

Pros: "Price"
Cons: "Lost my bag. Tiny tray tables. Seats did not recline"
