Airline reviews

They changed plans after I had checked in and had my confirmed seat. They changed my comfort seat to main cabin and even though there were 4 available comfort seats showing, I wasn’t able to pick one. When I asked at the counter if I could switch back to my comfort she said no.. bc someone else may have higher status than me which is ridiculous bc I was originally comfort. On the flight, I asked the flight attendant to switch and he said once they closed the doors he’d let me know, and he never said anything to me again. Plus we were an hour late arriving, because apparently we weren’t cleared to land and we had to circle. Not sure what’s up with Delta lately, but this was a crappy experience.

Sat on ground at Lax for 40 min after landing because some one was at our gate. After a 3 1/2 hour flight it sucks to just sit there and wait for no reason that the pilot could give us. So much for ever getting out of the airport on time.

Thanks

Pros: "New plane. Great movie selection. More stylish seats + bathroom. Overall very good and I think Delta has really made an effort to improve it's service. It's noticeable."
Cons: "Plane felt very dry compared to others. The electrical plug outlet jams right at around your knee level. Bread was cold and rock hard (seriously, can we not come up with a good solution for this?)."
Pros: "see above"
Pros: "Left ontime great breakfast. Good service No complaints"
Cons: "I loved the trip No negative comments."
Pros: "Cabin service was decent"

Cons: "I hated the seat and zone that I was assigned. I was literally the last seat in the back and also the very last person to board and get off the plane. It was terrible. Please select better seats for customers"
Pros: "Great services ce."

Pros: "Everything. Pilots and crew"
Pros: "I enjoyed the upholstery and comfort of the chairs."

Pros: "I liked getting home"
Cons: "I didn’t like the delays without warning or any benefits at the end."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and accommodating. Although the flight was several hours late the crew and staff were very professional and apologetic. The alerts were accurate and timely.

Cons: "The plane was delayed several hours."
Cons: "Flight delayed 2 hrs"
Cons: "The overhead bin did not stay down low enough so that I could place my bag in. It would lower then before I could place my bag raise slightly by a few inches. For someone of my height (5’5”) that was problematic. Fortunately another passenger saw my dilemma and held the bin lower to its full opening capacity. This also momentarily slowed down the boarding process."
Pros: "Love the new in-cabin wi-fi, USB charging station, and menu of in-flight entertainment and resources on the individual flatscreens."
Cons: "If some takes up two seats , then they should buy two seats. Very simple"

Cons: "Delay from Seattle to pasco."
Pros: "The complimentary entertainment was great, made the flight enjoyable."
Cons: "The con was the need for a connecting flight and the second plane didn't have the same perks."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and accommodating, and service was good"
Cons: "I purchased a basic economy ticket and upon checking in, my Delta app said my seat was unassigned and I had to get my boarding pass at the airport. I checked back later and the app had me as number 7 on the standby list. I called Delta (wait time 3+ hours... my flight was in 3), and then the Delta app support where I was able to get through to someone. She told me that the ticket I purchased over a month in advance did not guarantee me a seat on the plane (???). She said that if I was bumped from the flight they would reschedule me for the next morning. She was pretty rude and made it seem like I had a 50/50 shot of getting on this plane. I rushed to the airport in hopes that I would be the first from Standby there, and the gate agent told me that I was fine and would board right after first class and be assigned a seat then. Great. Once I got my seat assignment, I board to find out there is someone else sitting in my seat...... They eventually called the desk and had her moved, but it was the weirdest boarding experience I've had.. and I've flown Spirit. These planes that Delta fly's are SO OLD. Both times I have flown Delta the "turbulence" has been so bad and cold air was blowing right on my the whole flight with no option to turn it off (it wasn't from one of the vents, but from the side). Someone close to me works for Delta and I know for a fact that some of their engines blow mid-flight.. and they tell the passengers that it's turbulence.. so that doesn't make me feel very safe. I won't fly Delta again if there is another comparable option."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I did not like the fact that I have been with Delta for years and their response to me about booking my flight and using the payment method was they are working on it and there is nothing they can do. They would not even offer to hold my flight for 24 hours in case they fixed the issue within that time frame. It was very disappointing."
Cons: "No entertainment available at all. There were empty seats available and passenger next to me in the aisle seat was not offered to move--she fell asleep with her legs crossed and kept kicking me in the middle seat--I was traveling with the window seat passenger."
Cons: "Flight attendants were a little snobby and didn't treat all passengers equally, in my humble opinion (note: I was sitting in 1st class)."
Cons: "The flight was delayed when the pilot's tablet failed and he had to run to operations to get another. Seemed odd. While this was going on they decided to fuel the plane. Seemed like an excuse because they didn't have their act together on the fueling. Tablets are pretty reliable, do they really rely upon an ipad to get us where we are going?"
Cons: "cramped"
Pros: "Always have great experience with Delta flight attendants and staff. The entertainment on mobile phone was a really nice add-on, I had never seen before."
Cons: "Flight was delayed in taking off, waiting for connecting passengers. Plane was old, which is most Delta planes, but this one showed it. The tray table looked like it was from the 70s or 80s. Flying into Midway instead of O'hare was anticlimactic."
Pros: "Frontier was awesome! Super nice cabin crew, great pilot, left on time and early arrival!"
Pros: "We landed safely"
Cons: "We were delayed to depart. Not enough leg room."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and fun! Quick boarding!"
Cons: "Seats are not that comfortable."
Pros: "Initially the price seemed great"
Cons: "There was no free checked bag option so myself and 2 kids each had to pay $50 eaxh way costing me $300 extra. I could have got better flights from United for the extra $300"
Cons: "No reason given for the delay."
Cons: "The flight was delayed over an hour with no reason offered."
Pros: "Flight departed on time and we actually landed 20 minutes early."
Pros: "Cheap"
Cons: "Luggage was expensive"
Pros: "I liked the fact that the baggage agent didn’t bust my chops for my luggage being 2 pounds over for checked luggage. The lady that checked my bags was very nice about it."
Cons: "I didn’t like the fact that frontier entices you with low airfare and then screws you over with baggage fees and seat charges. By the time you pay all their fees, your ticket ends up costing the same or a little more than other carriers that already have these fees accounted for. I also didn’t like the fact that this woman supervisor threw her gate agents under the bus and then when confronted about it she denied it in front of 50 people and denied any wrong doing. What a horrible human being let alone a supervisor of people. Not sure what her name was but she works at frontier airlines in New Orleans Airport. The third thing is that Frontier goes very cheap on their airplanes. We had a brand new plane but the seats were hard and they didn’t recline. Tray tables were tiny and no WiFi. Who the hell doesn’t do WiFi ? Cheap airlines that’s who."
Pros: "The crew was exceptional. The pilot was outstanding. I get very bad motion sickness and both takeoff and landing were smooth as silk. It was much appreciated!!"
Cons: "Obviously we had that boarding delay issue. Ultimately it took less time than my cynical self expected, but it was still annoying."
Pros: "The price!"
Cons: "I arrived 2 hours before my scheduled flight time but had to wait for at least 15 minutes before anyone came to the counter."
Pros: "Everything was on time and the crew was friendly and professional. Not a single complaint. I will definitely book again!"
Cons: "Very small and overpriced snack selections, but I get it."
Pros: "professional staff. very smooth and safe flight."
Cons: "for safety i didn’t bring credit cards. I could not buy snacks. The seats were small and uncomfortable which I had too seat in for four hours. Only one toliet. It was very difficult to get of the seats to use the one toliet. I t was just too jammed."
Cons: "Flight was cancled. Had to scramble to get amother one. Just horrible customer service. Had to pay have carry ons. What a rip off."
Pros: "Flight attendant was awesome"
Cons: "No snacks."
Cons: "Despite being 3 hours late, the gate agent was in a hurry and barking at us. Cabin crew was nice and captain was calming."
Pros: "Space for personal items (since you have to pay for checked-in!)"
Cons: "Unaware of the fee for checked-in luggages Flight delayed of 1+ hour"
Pros: "arrived 1/2 hr. ahead of schedule and extremely fast baggage arrival (including skis)...professional and courteous staff"
Cons: "very uncomfortable seat bottoms"
Pros: "It was cheap"
Cons: "Flight was delayed hours. No snack or drink included at all."
Pros: "Service was great! from the curbside attendant who saved us a lot of hassle and time to the attendants, everyone was very helpful. Price was unbeatable. Unfortunately, to stay competitive in the industry, Frontier has become a "No Frills" airline. If you plan ahead with your luggage and snacks, they provide very affordable transportation."
Pros: "That we got to our destination safely and they didn't lose our luggage"
Cons: "Nickel and diming is for EVERYTHING! It was ridiculous after we added up all of our "fees". It would have been so much cheaper to go on a different airline. I believe we were scammed to believe we were going to fly cheaper because we didn't have to pay extras what a scam!"
Pros: "They charge for carry-ons, checked bags, your snacks on board, any seat assignment, you name it. NOTHING comes included."
Cons: "Seats are too close, seats are uncomfortable, their phone lines for customer service are horrible always pushing you to website or pay more charges, check in at New Orleans had only one agent with about 30 in line. STAY AWAY!!!!"
Cons: "Waited in 1 degree weather this morning for 1 hour to check my bag to New Orleans to find out delayed 3 hours, gate changed 4x, then waited another hour for plane to deboard and "security check," only to be told flight was cancelled and to "see customer service." Waited in line for two hours with four other flights with no information other than word of mouth "if we don't wait in line can't guarantee refund." Found out there are no other flights to Nola until Tuesday. Got refund by phone booked new flight for Monday morning on Southwest. Total time at airport today: 9 hours. Saddest part: people are trying to get home for Christmas. Moral of the story: don't be like Frontier airlines. Be prepared."
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "I was not informed of the cancellation until 3 hours prior to flight and there was no one at the counter that could help !! They stated it was because of weather but when calling frontier directly it seems it was more because they didn't have safe and the earliest I would be able to come home on another flight of there's was Friday! No help trying to get another flight . I had to spend almost $600 on a flight from AA"
Pros: "Efficiency of staff. Time of arrival was earlier than expected."
Cons: "The seating is somewhat cramped."
Pros: "cheap"
Cons: "extremely uncomfortable seats. like lawn plastic lawn chairs."
Cons: "The airlines have gone too far with ridiculous, expensive, baggage fees. I will look of a different airline next time."
Pros: "Flights were overall good. Airplane crew was attentive and cordial- sats are comfortable although not reclineable. Flight was on time and even arrived ahead of schedule"
Cons: "Check in crew was not very cordial/friendly- Did not have any check in Kiosks open at MSY and no one around the dask for over 40 minutes Tried to check in online 12 hours prior to my flight so I could get discounted check in bag prices and it would not accept my email as contact so it would not let me finalize the process so had to pay full price at airport- Although flight arrived early- had to wait almost one hour for luggage"
Pros: "Because when I speak to a customer service representative he never told me that my husband had to pay for the suitcase. And I asked him several times and his answer was no and upon arriving at the aeriopuerto he was charged $ 45.00 for the suitcase of hands"
Cons: "That they always speak to me with the truth"
Pros: "Personnel were great"
Cons: "Luggage took over an hour"
Pros: "Boarding"
Cons: "An air hostess on the flight to New Orleans would make jokes with the guys across the aisle rather than bring me a glass of water. Another air hostess booed me on my way out when being told that."
Pros: "Three out of four planes on the round trip were new and in excellent condition."
Cons: "Three out of the four planes round trip were delayed. It is ridiculous that the only plane that actually left on time was the very first flight out on a Sunday morning."
Pros: "Smooth all the way. Workers were good airplane was clean"
Cons: "Flight delayed for three hours, no flight attendant to talk to, long wait on the phone before anyone would pick up and when I did get through to a human she could do nothing to help and kept repeating herself because she had nothing real to say. Plus they hit you with hidden charges left and right. The seats don't recline and the flight attendants are not available to help because they're so busy. Never again!"
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "1. They charge for every little thing. Each checked bag is $25.00 and each carry on is $35.00. They also charge you for a seat. So once you purchase your ticket, you then have to pay an additional fee to seat down. 2. The staff is unprofessional. Not only does everyone look sloppy, but the staff is comprised of individuals that don't care at all about customers and have been poorly trained. The quality is very low. 3. I was hit and then verbally abused by a gentlemen on the plane, they laughed and did nothing!!!!! 4. They only allow 15 bags on their plane! After 15, they will move your bags to a different plane without telling you. What kind of nonsense is that?!"
Pros: "They said they had a good flight"
Pros: "Price of the ticket"
Cons: "The flight attendants were rude to the passengers around me. The announcements made came off rude And sarcastic. They were not very professional. This was my first time flying Frontier."
Cons: "Being delayed 30 min at the gate and then another hour in the air !"
Pros: "Crew was nice, helpful."
Cons: "Plane was late, as usual. Typical frontier delays."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Tried to charge me $60 for carry on - on my second flight. Huge line of angry customers. Starting to be known as the worst airline in the history of flying."
Pros: "Being On Time and the Crew was efficient and nice."
Cons: "Very Loud Flight."
Cons: "Horrendous. Don't fly Frontier if you are a fequent traveler."
Cons: "Two screaming babies. Great other than that."
Cons: "Didn't make the return flight because our first flight out of Denver didn't happen and we had to cancel the whole trip. Fees we were prepared for- but I will never trust frontier to get me to where I need to go."
Pros: "The crew was nice. The plane was clean."
Cons: "I was not aware until check-in that I would have to pay for a seat and carry on bag in addition to the flight that I had already paid for. The low rates were deceiving. Also, the flight was very delayed."
Pros: "The pilot had a sense of humor, unlike the flight attendants."
Cons: "The cons are- cramped seating (I'm 5'7 and 140#), paying for a darn soda, flight attendants had no personality, more mechanical difficulties on this flight too, Paying extra for seats up front(as they are more"roomy"), paying for checked baggage(who doesn't fly without baggage?), no entertainment at all. This is the Wal-Mart of airlines. NEVER again!!"
Cons: "Everything was fine except the seating. It was the hardest most uncomfortable seating with no flexibility. I am a small person and for a 2 1/2 HR flight my wife and I both very uncomfortablez"
Pros: "Price"
Cons: "Didn't like the "surprise" baggage & carry-on fees."
Cons: "Seats were absolutely terrified and both flights smeller awful"
