Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Great crew, spacing of passengers, comfortable, on time"
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "Arriving over a half an hour late"
Pros: "Crew, atmosphere, timeliness. I was satisfied overall"
Cons: "Gate number changed couple times before flight departure"
Cons: "DTW to FLL, plane was delayed coming from BOS to DTW 5 hours for BOS weather. The plane arrived & they announced they would turn it around ASAP. They started the boarding process & then stopped it stating that a crew member had timed out. Delayed hour to FIND one. Shortly after delayed overnight."
Cons: "The girls were sweet as usual!"
Cons: "Late and bumpy"
Pros: "Flight attendants were very friendly."
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "I actually can not complain"
Pros: "There were minimal passengers on the flight so I was able to have the entire row to myself. The flight was also very short which is always nice."
Pros: "Video access"
Cons: "Too hot, too crowded"
Cons: "Didn’t get our beverage and snack till we were almost ready to land at Charlotte"
Pros: "With all the competition among airlines and the cutbacks we suffer as customers Delta manages to make you feel like you matter still. Timely boarding, actual help with finding seats making boarding efficient (not just hurrying you along), updates from the cockpit that you could hear and understand, multiple choices in snacks-one even a healthy option, staff that was friendly and interested in making it a good experience not one that seemed bothered they had to work."
Pros: "This was two hours of absolute freezing temperature"
Cons: "It was so cold it was actually unbeasable"
Pros: "Great experience. Left on time and landed early. Comfortable and great crew"
Cons: "Wish there were more snack options"
Cons: "My flight was delayed, which would have caused me to miss my connecting flight. The customer service person was not at all helpful, and told me there were no other flights available on any airline until the next day. However, I was able to go online and book another flight immediately...which means that she was either being disingenuous or actively undermining efforts to get me home in a timely fashion. Very disappointing and as a SkyMiles member would have thought there would be some level of common courtesy dealing with a non-weather related delay that drastically impacted my travel plans."
Pros: "Really nice staff all the way through from gate agent to flight attendants. Flight left on time and landed early. Night and day vs American"
Cons: "Nothing. Flight was perfect."
Cons: "I didn’t appreciate that your rude flight attendant allowed another passenger to move suitcase and she got an attitude with me. Delta there is always something on your flights."
Pros: "Like the smaller contingent of passengers. Boerding a lot quicker and simpler. Captain gave us some interesting details about plane and its capabilities."
Cons: "Exit row seats were were very uncomfortable, very little padding, although there was plenty of legroom. No snacks or entertainment. WiFi did not work."
Cons: "I was the very first person in line for Zone 3, and they automatically told me I had to gate check my bag, which would mean adding at least 20 minutes when I landed. I took it on the plane anyway; and there was PLENTY of space in the overhead compartments. This feels like I’m being treated as a second class citizen because I was unwilling to be nickel and dimed for seat or boarding upgrades. It’s infuriating"
Pros: "It was great because I was able to get an aisle seat."
Cons: "Like it all"
Pros: "Good customer service"
Pros: "Delta personnel were very pleasant/friendly"
Pros: "Flight attendant was nice. She changed my seat to the front cause the guy behind me was kicking my chair."
Cons: "They cancelled my flight from the day before and when they rebooked my flight, they could of gave me a better seat."
Cons: "My return portion of my flight was canceled and had to purchase a new ticket. I would like a full refund of my expenses."
Pros: "Left on time!"
Cons: "Too cramped"
Cons: "I understand gate changes happen, but I got 4 texts switching the gates back and forth. Is that necessary?"
Pros: "The flight attendants were very nice and the boarding crew. From the time I walked up to the counter at LGA to the time I exited the plane in CLT, I was treated so kindly and with such respect. Kudos to the Delta Crew."
Cons: "The FLIGHT!!!!! There were delays. Scheduled take of time was 6:59 PM. We took off at 735 PM. Once I was on the plane, I started kicking myself in the you know what because I knew immediately I was scammed. I had purchased a 1st Class ticket for $400+, only to find that my comfort would be the equivalent of that if I purchased a ticket in economy. My long legs would still be cramped. For the past few years, I have been purchasing 1st class for it's spaciousness. On this flight, on the RCJ700, I did not fly comfortably. The space was very tight, and I was able to stretch my legs as if I sat in economy. This was by far, my most uncomfortable flight ever. SMH; A WASTE OF MY HARD EARNED MONEY!!!!!"
Pros: "But, this wasn't bad at all, even though we were on the very last seat of the plane. We were next to one of the flight attendants during take off and landing and she was very kind and we were speaking with her. The flight was smooth"
Cons: "Every flight was 100% full. Inadequate overhead space. I felt I was being herded like cattle. It is NOT a pleasurable experience flying with Delta."
Cons: "I liked it all"
Pros: "The boarding agents were especially helpful and friendly to my disabled wife, travelling in a wheelchair."
Pros: "We spent 90 min in line to take off on the tarmac. Pilot kept us informed. Crew were very pleasant."
Pros: "The flight was on schedule and landed early, and the pilot landed that plane very gently. It was quite impressive."
Cons: "I purchased a first class ticket in hopes that I would have a lot more comfort during the flight. It took me quite some time to get comfortable. The seat was ok, but I found the pillows to be very small and flat. I needed multiple pillows. The head rest was not adjustable, so I also found this to be uncomfortable. Usually when I fly AA, the headrest is adjustable. My final dislike was that the beverage selection was limited. I'm quite sure there was plenty of alcohol, but what about those customers who do not drink alcoholic beverages? I asked for hot chocolate, there was none. I asked for hot tea with honey, there wasn't any. So all in all my flight was okay, but that is solely because of the flight attendant and pilot. They did their jobs and they did an excellent job."
Pros: "I got a seat in the exit row with lots of leg room. The entertainment that I didn't use offered a great selection with very recent movies, etc."
Cons: "I didn't like that I had to take a bus to my terminal. I didn't like the fact that my gate was changed more than five times. I didn't like that my flight time was changed more than 15 times with no reason why until boarding time. I didn't like the fact that I did not get a seat assignment until boarding the plane. I didn't like the fact that they couldn't manage to scramble another plane and crew, but instead forced us to wait over four hours for one that was stuck somewhere else in the country."
Pros: "Speed and comfortable kind bars were a nice touch"
Cons: "Luggage went elsewhere"
Cons: "Waited on tarmac at Laguardia more than 45 minutes after landing for gate to open up."
Pros: "Plane left 2 hours late."
Pros: "Everything was smooth from start to finish, and the flight landed 10 min. early! Can't ask for more!"
Pros: "The boarding process was very well done. Gate agent and flight attendants on top of their game. This is how it is supposed to be done. Thank you."
Cons: "Although weather played a part in the poor experience, it wasn't the only factor. Delta was unprepared."
Cons: "Ended up stuck at Laguardia for 9 hours, tried to get onto earlier flight and wasn't able to because as I arrived as the jet bridge door was closing. The delta crew was pleasant, but I sat at the terminal watching to see how quickly that plane would back out to depart.... it sat there for another 45 mins, while I sat there wishing I was on it. My later/original flight ended up being delayed multiple times (not due to weather) and given no explanation for why."
Pros: "Seamless uneventful flight."
Cons: "I paid for the upgrade to Delta Comfort Plus for an aisle seat & for some reason they reassigned our seats and I got Putin a middle seat. It was not what I paid for and it was very uncomfortable. If people pay to upgrade to specific seats we should. It be reassigned to whatever seat they want to put us in."
Pros: "Gate crew did a good job, passed out snacks and drinks with delay"
Cons: "Lot's of upset people worrying about connections"
Cons: "The aircraft was older and visibly dirty in the corners. The baggage took well over the guaranteed 20 mins."
Cons: "Due to last minute and absurd changes made to my itinerary by Delta without my knowledge, I was not on this flight."
Cons: "Better spacing. Don't tell me the last two rows are blocked off for safety that's bs, they were blocked off so the flight attendants could have a row to themselves."
Pros: "On time and quick boarding process"
Cons: "The attendants at the gates could have been more pleasant"
Pros: "Macy in the first class cabin was friendly, attentive and very efficient."
Cons: "Wait time to board was delayed 20 minutes."
Pros: "Bad weather came in n I was rerouted on Time"
Pros: "Terrific meals, active flight crew and very attentive."
Cons: "Blankets seemed dirty and seats were cramped. Gate was changed but that was not communicated well, so we almost missed the flight."
Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "Small, loud plane with cramped seats. No hot beverage service."
Cons: "The internet wasn't working, and the flight attendant told me there was nothing she could do about it. The touch screens on the back of the seat had difficulty responding to touch. The headphone jacks and headphones they gave us on the plane were not compatible. If it twisted even a bit, it would lose the connection. I understand these may seem petty, but they are things we've come to expect on airline travel. If they aren't going to be there, please let us know when we book our tickets so we can plan accordingly. The flight attendant for my section of the plane was cold and a bit rude. I didn't want to ask her for anything."
Cons: "Late taking off and arriving. Once we landed it took 15 minutes to locate someone to bring the ramp out to the plane. Just incompetence on part of American Airlines."
Pros: "Did not use"
Cons: "Tight seating"
Pros: "The flight was delayed 4 times until we were unable to make our connecting flight. We were sent home to try again tomorrow. Meanwhile other flights AA made their connections. Total bullshit. I suggest they couldn't round up a crew."
Cons: "You are kidding."
Pros: "Being able to board early due to husband's disability."
Cons: "Only being provided a warm cup of water. Paid extra $$ for seating with no other liberties provided."
Cons: "There was a older Caucasian flight attendant that didn't have a name tag on that touched me twice on the shoulder"
Cons: "Delays when other airlines with same destination did not have them. The constant asking if is move seats. No means no."
Cons: "Took forever"
Pros: "On time Attendants friendly Great service"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Boarded on time."
Cons: "Left 25 minutes late. when I asked the flight attendant to let me move further to the front so I can leave the plane quick and not miss my connection I was told that there were no other seats. I looked and YES there was at least 5 other seats in rows much closer than mine! Also upon arrival we did not get off the plane for 15 minutes . My connection was boarding already. I had to go from gate E 6 to gate B14 in a flash at the age of 66 I barely made it out of breath and they were about to close the doors! I was not a happy camper when I was told in the flight 5406 that I had plenty of time!!! not to worry!!!"
Cons: "This experience has taught me to stick with Delta."
Pros: "Smooth at GRR. A little Delay in CLT. It was a good experience because we weren't on a deadline to be somewhere."
Cons: "Got a notification of a TWO HOUR DELAY departing SFO. Rebooked into Charlotte instead of Dallas to connect to Fort Myers. THAT flight got delayed AFTER the doors were closed by another 45 minutes which caused me to miss my connection to Fort Myers AND have American Airlines leave my bag in Charlotte. I rebooked into West Palm Beach to drive to Fort Myers and my bag stayed in Charlotte even though there was ANOTHER 45 minute delay to change a tire on the plane. If I practiced medicine the way the airline handled customers, I'd kill every third patient!"
Cons: "It really wasn't "On-Time", but you couldn't tell that from the monitors. (I'm sure you like to keep your statistics "clean", but they shouldn't be dishonest.) A TSA? agent had us initially wait in a long incorrect line after we picked up our passport scanner sheets even though we told her we had a tight connection. Afterwards, she moved us along with a few others. That line could have swamped us!"
Pros: "Flight was smooth and ontime"
Cons: "Flight was extremely expensive."
Pros: "It was fine. Nothing exceptional. Pretzels and a bloody"
Cons: "Group boarding again"
Pros: "Nothing very unhelpful staff also very rude"
Cons: "How they sell a ticket without seats available?? Very unpleasant flight! I will never buy through kayak.com and never will flight with American Airlines again"
Pros: "Friendly crew. efficient."
Cons: "Disappointed with the "Hot Box" (Bean Burrito type) cold & never heated up but still served...unedible. Real shame - food just wasted...unnecessary and just adds to costs of flights at end of day :-/ Customs & Gate in Clt delay could have been handled better. Continuously told us we were deplaning and then silence...several times...very frustrating after 9 hour flight. Better communication and organization in customs would be appreciated Otherwise, crew was very polite and overall good job"
Pros: "Customer service excellence The flight attendants were very attentive"
Pros: "Nothing out of the ordinary, which for plane flights is about as good as it gets. No delays, no scares, no extra inconveniences."
Cons: "It's a transatlantic plane flight, not anything I'd describe as a fun experience."
Cons: "Short flight, so food offering was little pretzels."
Cons: "We lost our connection to Jacksonville"
Pros: "Nice trip...no stress"
Pros: "The plane was very nice and very comfy. Not a whole lot of leg room where I sat (economy) but it was a cheap ticket so I can't complain."
Cons: "Overbooked flight made storing carryons annoying and hard."
Cons: "Both flights delayed. A six and a half hour drive took nine and a half hours by air."
Pros: "Courteous and polite"
Cons: "Nothing was a great flight"
Pros: "There was an air traffic back-up for a few minutes, and instead of just letting us sit there wondering what was going on, the pilot gave us periodic updates on what was happening, which made the process much easier. Also, the flight attendants were friendly, which makes a big difference."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly"
Cons: "On a 10+ hour flight that you're trying to stay awake for, some sort of entertaining is near mandatory. Neither mine nor my boyfriend's TV worked. Even after the crew reset the system twice, they still didn't work."
Pros: "No one sat in the middle seat next to me"
Cons: "Seats and leg room are too small Had to pay to get the exit row"
Pros: "Planes boarded on time"
Cons: "Long wait on runway before take off"
Pros: "appreciated having enough room for my knees not to hit the seat in front of me"
Pros: "Nothing. Flight was late, I was bumped out of my seats that I paid extra for. The seats we had wouldn't recline. Boarding was announced in 5 minutes so lines were formed and we boarded 35 minutes later as we had to wait for one extra cabin crew member. We got charged toe all our bags (see SWA). There was human waste in the bathroom."
Cons: "See above"
Cons: "American Airlines is continually delaying flights. Impossible to actually plan around."
Pros: "I understand that the breakfast cookies are economical, and many people enjoy them, but can we add some variety or switch things up sometime, pleeeeease. My kids love the cookies. thanks Jesse"
Cons: "The cookies"
Pros: "Crew was very professional"
Cons: "My flight was delayed 5 hours"
Pros: "Good pilot...smooth landing."
Cons: "snacks and lack of in-flight entertainment."
Pros: "Never again. I had a connecting flight with a one hour layover and almost missed it. The plane to charlotte was very late boarding. Once i land I rush to my gate because I only have 20 minutes before they start boarding ; I get to the gate and have to wait almost an hour. At this point I still havent eaten because I am waiting around by the gate and the attendants are not communicating any information. Then they finally tell us that the reason the fligt hasnt boarded was because the flight attendant misplaced her luggage in the previous flight and was waiting to arrive to the terminal. Now how is that my issue? American Airlines needs to do better!"
Cons: "Bumpy landing in Charlotte. But it was windy and raining."
Cons: "Return flight was delayed, gate changes unfriendly and unhelpful flight attendants"
Pros: "Everything was good."
Pros: "Movies and music through individual seat monitors were a great idea.The Pilot on our way back was outstanding. He gave truthful and accurate information about delays, was always on the alert for warning us and staff about any expected turbulence."
Cons: "The flight was actual operated by American Airlines, so don't blame Finair. I had to call Finair for a question and they were polite and helpful. The crew on the plane on the flight from Charlotte to Rome were just mean, curt, and generally unhelpful. They did not collect trash or dinner trays for well over an hour after everyone had finished. The Italian gentleman next to us was so disgusted he got up and found the trashcan himself and refused to talk to the flight crew the rest of the trip.It didn't matter because they disappeared after dinner and no one saw them again for 5 or 6 hours. On the flight back from Rome the crew was nice but slack. They skipped all the back rows twice row 34 onwards) when they got distracted during a refreshment service. They also repeatedly told passengers they were out of a specific item on the cart but "you can go to the back and see for yourself if we have any".Customs is out of control. They refused to allow anyone off the plane for over an hour because they had another flight come in "from the islands". Then they yelled at us about calling relatives to let them know what the holdup was. It took 1 and 1/2 hours to get through customs because they made us use the new kiosks then go see a real person and answer questions there too."
Cons: "Prior flight was late getting in, but that was not communicated to us at the gate, even though that would require disembarking of previous passengers and boarding of new ones to happen in 6 minutes. Clearer communication would be better."
Pros: "everything was on time and no one got kicked off of the flight!"
Pros: "AT THE TERMINAL IN PORTLAND THE ATTENDANTS WERE SUPER HELPFUL AS I WAS CONFUSED ABOUT GETTING MY TICKETS."
Cons: "JUST BEFORE BOARDING THOSE OF US PASSENGERS NOT ALREADY BOARDED WERE TOLD WE COULD NOT BRING OUR CARRY ONS WITH US AS THERE WAS NOT ENOUGH SPACE TO STOW THEM OVERHEAD. SO WE WERE TOLD TO SEND THEM DIRECTLY TO OUR FINAL DESTINATION. WHEN I BOARDED THE PLANE I COUNTED 7 OVERHEAD STORAGE BINS ON THE OPPOSITE SIDE TO MY AISLE WHERE I WAS SEATED WERE NOT FILLED AND THERE WERE SEVERAL SUCH BINS ON MY SIDE OF THE AISLE (I DID NOT HAVE TIME TO COUNT THEM BEFORE I SAT DOWN). I ASKED AN ATTENDANT WHY THIS WAS SO GIVEN WE WERE TOLD THE BINS WERE FILLED JUST AS WE BOARDING FROM THE DEPARTURE AREA. SHE WAS POLITE AND SAID SHE WASN'T SURE ABOUT WHO MADE THE ANNOUNCEMENT IN THE TERMINAL BUT THAT IN ANY EVENT MY CARRY ON WOULD ARRIVE SAFE AND SOUND IN VANCOUVER - IT DID BUT WITH MY BOOK FOOD SNACK WHICH i HAD INTENDED TO USE WHILE ON MY WAY TO CHI. AND VAN."
Pros: "Got through sucurity ar PNR barely in time to make flight."
Cons: "Even though I am a frequent flyer with a Global Access card, I was select for enhanced security check. I paid for the Global Accessmcard especially sofas to avoid this. United said it was a TSA thing while TSA said it was at the prerogative of the airline. Why did this happen? So much for TSA Pre or Global Access."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "Waiting an hour to take off"
Pros: "It use to be, I could put up with the lack of comfort and services because the cost savings made it bearable. But thes days, the basic ticket costs are high and increasing despite ala Carter pricing. The flights are always full and the number of flights are down. Airline profits are at a peak yet very little is flowing back to improve the flying experience."
Pros: "Boarding went well, Flight was smooth,"
Cons: "Not only the Gate, but the terminal was changed with out advance notice. I got to Terminal C- listed on my boarding pass, only to check the screen to find they switched to Terminal A, which meant exiting the terminal C and taking a bus to Terminal A. Only as I was boarding the plane did I receive a late text telling me there was a Terminal change. The flight attendants passed me by with the drink cart and never came back to service me"
Cons: "No agent to check in when I arrived at airport. Only at gate. No advance check in or advance seating. Allowed passengers to have more than 2 bags. Flight was late. No help getting to next gate or holding aircraft. Absolutely uncomfortable sitting."
Cons: "I do not appreciate spending several hundred dollars on a connecting flight with initially a 10 hour layover, and a delay of almost two hours."
Pros: "Pleasant crew"
Pros: "I enjoyed the free United wifi because I could follow the flight progress in real time."
Cons: "They need free wifi!"
Cons: "Late arriving crew. Screw up because the ground crew forgot to throw a switch. So we left even later. Got to Charlotte and United had forgotten to request a gate."
Cons: "Canceled flight, booked me an impossible connection, put on stayby when I get the tickets months in advance. Offered no vouchers and made me fly out on a diffrent day. Hs aircraft delays on all flights"
Cons: "Never flying United again. On my way to the airport in Portland I got a text from United that my flight to Newark had been cancelled and there was no way to fly me out of Portland to San Diego that day. My sister had to drive me to Boston so I could catch a flight to San Francisco, which took 6.5 hours because it flew over most of Canada for some reason AND had three babies that cried from start to finish. Oh and because I was a late addition, I had a middle seat. The second I turned my phone on after we landed I had another yet another text from United saying that my connection to San Diego had been delayed three hours and wouldn't take off until 11:15 pm."
Cons: "We waited all evening for a flight that kept being changed and then finally canceled. We were given several reasons from bad weather, mechanical problems, and crew out of hours. We should hv been transferred to another plane sooner without having to stay overnight with no change of clothes or personal items."
Cons: "Tried to get assistance at the United desk where my gate was located at and they could not answer any of my questions and would not assist me or many others who had the same issues."
Pros: "The crew was awesome and the flight wasn't bad at all"
Cons: "It was suggested that I didn't bring my carry on with me so I left it to be voluntarily checked and it came back ripped"
Pros: "Nice clean plane, very friendly and helpful crew."
Cons: "The hour delay."
Pros: "The flight ran ahead of schedule and the crew was polite and efficient."
Cons: "The flight attendant woke me up to ask if I wanted a drink."
Cons: "Delta airline always delayed. My flight was delayed 3 hours then cancelled twice. they don't give you anything beside rescheduling your flight. Sucks. I hope to god I never have to deal with them again!!"
Pros: "I appreciate the fact that caught the issue with the aircraft while it was on the ground."
Cons: "I don't appreciate a the fact that you made me late for church. Wouldn't have been such a big deal if i wasn't the church's organist."
Pros: "Polite staff"
Pros: "The crew communicated well to the passengers."
Cons: "I didn't get to Chicago until close to midnight, the flight to MSP was cancelled, and I missed my meeting the next morning. I understand you can't control the weather, but that didn't change the outcome for me."
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Pros: "In flight entertainment. Was able to watch a movie for free."
Cons: "Service is not what it used to be!"
Pros: "Getting to Charlotte"
Cons: "Plane dirty. Windows dirty. Extremely bumpy. Seats clostraphobic. Sat too long leaving"
Pros: "First off - thank you for putting food back onto what you offer when people fly united. It's a drink and a small snack. It's not much to ask, so I appreciate them putting that back in. I also liked the wifi which allowed me to check where my flight was in the air for free. Overall, I will say united is much improved from where it was - though I'd appreciate some free entertainment."
Cons: "Boarding was a little bit of a mess with our flight. We had a LOT of people on standby that were standing in the boarding lines because no one was communicating to them where they should be and where to go. This is something that should be worked on by them."
Cons: "I did not like having to check my carry on after all. I was told the overheads were full so I could get it in Baggage after the trip. For health reasons I did not want the trip to baggage and I did not want to risk my bag being lost. I drive 3 hrs o the airport and I did not want to drive back or wait 3 days for a lost bag to be sent to me as I have before. The person at the gate was rude when I said you won't lose my luggage will you? he said Probably. I said really, and he said well you did ask."
Pros: "Staff excellent"
Cons: "Passengers space is insanely small, staff work under restrictive conditions"
Pros: "Friendly helpful courteous"
Pros: "I was surprised on how clean the plane was, considering it was an express. The attendance were pleasant as well."
Cons: "How small the snack bag is."
Cons: "Why does the crew giving the announcement have to either hell into the microphone or why does the speakers so loud it was deafing!"
Pros: "The plan took off and landed. Not much positive about united."
Cons: "Feel like a number. Crowded zone two line (Platinum and below and all the darn credit card holders. Flight was delayed for no crew, then in was maintenance issue, which could not be addressed until the pilot was there. Ugh. Inefficient."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very pleasant."
Pros: "I liked getting to my destination safe and back safe."
Cons: "I didn't like the pulling off or the landing or the rocking while flying."
Pros: "Flight was not only on time, but early both ways."
Cons: "Gate change at Newark."
Pros: "Everything worked out just perfect"
Cons: "No snacks served"
Pros: "Kayak did a great job with updates."
Cons: "United has failed me once again. Delayed flights, no information, the crew didn't know a thing..didn't leave out until 2am and was suppose to leave ar 855"
Cons: "We were grounded for over an hour, no fault of United. Spent a half hour on the runway, it would've been nice to be told that before taking off."
Cons: "The only thing I didn't care for is I sat beside a man that was 63 and weighed about 275 pounds and I had absolutely no room to sit. Also I couldn't buy any snacks on the plane because it only took cards ."
Pros: "I requested a wheelchair. My foot is in a boot and I am not suppose to walk any distance on it. I was told there were only 2 wheelchairs and that they were for 2 elderly passengers. I passed 8 more wheelchairs that were not being used. Very rude airport employees. I had to use an escalator and almost fell."
Pros: "Every detsil"
Pros: "The crew on this flight were extremely friendly and genuinely seemed happy to be there."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed at first and then we were all on the plane ready to take off when they noticed a computer malfunction. Everyone had to get off the plane. They told us to wait 4 hours for a new plane (until midnight). At 11pm they told us the new plane wasn't coming and that the flight was cancelled. Our only option to get back home for work Monday morning was to take a 3:15am bus to Logan and then a 6am flight from there. Longest night ever!"
Cons: "The flight was delayed over 3 hours, putting me home at 4:00 am, instead of my planned 12:30 am. At that point, I wish I had booked a flight for Sunday. I was stuck in the ohare airport for hours while stores and restaurants were closed, without wifi, and tired. Then I had to wait for my paid checked bag once I landed in Charlotte."
Pros: "First Class"
Pros: "Same as above."
Cons: "Same as above."
Pros: "Got from point a to point b"
Cons: "30-40 minute delay to board, charge for drinks, snack, carry on, and checked luggage."
Pros: "AFlight was fast and crew was accomdating."
Cons: "I did not like the fact that I was padded down not once but twice at the age of 69 almost 70. Really did not know I was a threat to the airlines. I'm staying with my daughter at Ft.Bragg."
Cons: "being nickle and dimed for every little convenience, checked bag, carry on bag, seat selection, etc. What I though was a good deal ticket turned out to be way more expensive than I imagined."
Pros: "Crew was pleasant enough."
Cons: "Both of my flights were delayed. We had to get off the plane on both ends before we were allowed to reboard. I missed a long awaited dinner reservation with my husband at one end and was several hours late arriving at my final destination. Mechanical issues on both planes doesn't inspire a lot of confidence. My family and I will not fly Frontier again."
Pros: "Flight was reasonably priced. Flight options were great"
Cons: "Rates are misleading. Once you add in the higher baggage fee, the seat fees (no free seats), the flight is priced the same if not higher than other airlines but the real difference is in all of this is customer service. The lead flight attendant on the my flight was extremely rude and unresponsive. My mother had a wheelchair assist her to the gate for our departing flight in Orlando. This was arranged by the ticket counter. Apparently, Frontier screwed up and did not arrange for a wheelchair to meet us at the gate in Charlotte. When we mentioned this to the lead flight attendant, he said we would need to go and find one ourselves. I asked if he could call the gate and asked them to bring one so I wouldn't have to leave my elderly mother, he said, "no". I asked again and explained that I didn't want to leave my mother. This time he rolled his eyes at me and said, it wasn't his problem. Really? This is precisely the reason I will not take Frontier again. Please look into training your people better or your hiring process. Cheap flight do not address this issue."
Cons: "I don't like the way price of the ticket got dropped"
Cons: "Even when paying extra for better seats they were still terrible. First flight had a rude flight attendant. Never really one to complain when flying, because no one really enjoys flying, but this was an experience that will make me never fly Frontier again."
Cons: "1 hour in orlando waiting the baggage i never past someting like that in my life"
Pros: "-purchasing tickets online was easy -checking in through the mobile app -on time -great for shorter trips The one complaint that I read about is not knowing that carry-ons are an added cost but it very clearly states, on their website and mobile application, the luggage policy. I chose to purchase a seat for an added cost of $10 round trip."
Cons: "Seats are a bit uncomfortable but for shorter flights it's not a big deal."
Pros: "Boarding was fast and orderly"
Cons: "First off I didn't realize that you had to pay $30 for a carry-on(this is not a mistake). Second I didn't realize that when you buy a ticket that it doesn't include any seat, and that you have to actually pay a fee to get a seat. Which is an additional $16 at the cheapest. Finally the plane was really old, and the seats were extremely uncomfortable with almost no padding at all. I would be able to put up with the uncomfortable conditions if I was actually saving money, but after paying for a seat and a carry-on, it was the same or more than other carriers."
Cons: "Longest boarding process.. rude staff"
Pros: "They set me up in a hotel for part of my layover"
Cons: "24hr layover because they scheduled flights too close together. Everybody on the plane missed their connections."
Pros: "uh the "big front seat" was decent? fairly roomy and still cheap"
Cons: "fuckin screaming children everywhere, it was horrendous"
Cons: "You really need to explain what a carry on bag is, before people pay for a computer bag."
Pros: "The crew of the actual flight were lovely."
Cons: "No real information updates during the delay. No way to guarantee that the flight wouldn't be canceled. Just had to "wait and see"..."
Cons: "Gate changes and delays with excuses like waiting on paperwork to be approved. Really? Didn't you know we were taking off soon?"
Pros: "non-stop flight"
Cons: "$30 charge for check bag and a $10 charge for a carry on bag and they even charge for snacks and beverages. It's much cheaper to buy snacks and a beverage at the airport kiosks. most uncomfortable seats I've ever sat in and they don't even recline. You have to pay extra for those. The comfortable reclining seats that weren't occupied, the aircrew wouldn't let you sit in them unless you paid $50. I will never fly on this airline again."
Pros: "Better communication"
Pros: "Flight was on time & boarding was quick & efficient. I believe in his was accomplished because there is a charge for carry-on baggage - it is cheaper to actually check your baggage."
Cons: "I found charge for seat was a bit much. Middle seats are free which would work on short flight . Just be aware the lower price is just base price and you pay for everything else, including water during flight. That said I would use Frontier again for short hop to Philadelphia."
Cons: "Comfort and space"
Pros: "Decent price for last minute non-stop from Orlando. Got Zone 1 for paying for a checked bag so easy and quick boarding. Flight attendants were friendly and helpful. On time and no real issues."
Cons: "No TSA precheck allowed with Frontier. I pay for this and it's TSA not the airlines so I don't understand this. I also didn't realize I'd have to pay for my seat and my carry on. So, my inexpensive flight got $80 more expensive. The seats are hard and do not recline. This could be an OK option for short flights if the price is right. Won't be my first choice, especially for business."
Pros: "Employees were terrific"
Cons: "Chairs were awful close & thin"
Pros: "The direct flight!"
Pros: "No problems whatsoever."
Cons: "Traffic getting to the airport."
Pros: "come on, not much"
Cons: "$30 to check a bag, $40 to bring it on the flight!!!!!!! nope nope nope."
Pros: "Fast, smooth flight"
Cons: "Very tight seating. Middle seat as a 220 lb man."
Cons: "don't take cash. Had to use credit card for $2 drink. too cramped."
Pros: "Being on time."
Pros: "The fact that you honored others' time and lives and were prompt and kind in doing so! Great service and attentiveness! Seats were comfy with plenty of space! My friends all flew another airline for a conference and were delayed by 3-9 hours! YIKES! YEAH FRONTIER!"
Pros: "I enjoyed the flight attendant. Extremely helpful!! I wasn't assigned a seat and she helped me get one that I had enough room."
Cons: "I didn't like the comfort... As in 0 comfortability. Not sure why since this is 2016. I don't the seats reclined at all. The arm piece that divides the seats would stay up."
Pros: "Nothing. Will never fly with frontier again"
Cons: "1. You have to pay for carry on bags, more expensive than checking a bag. 2. When checking in and getting the option to pick my seat, all of the normal seats were taken and had to pay extra (not for an extra legroom seat) but just to be closer to the front of the plane. 3. The seats are uncomfortable 4. No drink service during the flight. 5. Ended up paying 2/3 the cost of the original ticket in fees the day of my flight. 6. Our flight was delayed 30 minutes, but the front counter said Nothing about it being delayed or what time what time we were boarding, updates, etc. If I could rate them less than a star I would. Terrible experience and terrible company ideas. I will not ride when them again because I don't want them to think this is acceptable service from the airline business. I hope they go out of business soon."
Cons: "The flight attendants were not cleared to fly to Charlotte (a domestic flight?!?!?!?) So we had to wait for another plane to land while trapped on the runway for new flight attendants. So unprofessional."
Cons: "over a hour delay because of pilot shortage"
Pros: "The color of their uniforms were very nice and professional. The animal themed planes were fun as well!"
Cons: "Poor customer service. We got to the airport 3 hours ahead of time and it took well over an hour for them to check in baggage (keep in mind we checked in our bags online and there were only 8 people in front of us) we made it to our gate 30min ahead of time. It was terrible. Tried to be kind to the staff but they were not having it. Very inconsiderate of others and doing their job in a timely fashion. They also lost my luggage. Since the airline is so cheep they don't keep staff on hand to handle issues after the flight lands. No desk to report to, no phone number to call; as if you never even flown with them. It was very alarming as I had important clothing for an interview, medicine, and other personal items that would not easily be replaced. Never flying frontier again."
Pros: "Price was terrific"
Cons: "Ordered sodas from in-flight service and then was charged for them! They should let you know that coffee, soda, juice, etc are not free as they are on other airlines."
Pros: "Friendly and helpful staff. Their enthusiism for their jobs showed. Although the pricing for baggage was a bit steep, I appreciate the charging for carry-ons. It seemed to limit the over-use and over-sized carry-on bags."
Cons: "It was hard to hear boarding announcements"
Cons: "Both going & coming my flight was delayed over 2 hours.....you get what you pay for. Accommodations or credits should've been given"
Cons: "Having to pay all the extra fees for a checked bag and carry on luggage."
Pros: "The room between seats in the cabin."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed 2 1/2 hrs. We were told we would be updated every 15 min. Not! Finally a plane was coming from 2 terminals away. It took over 45 min to get to our gate, with no updates every 15 min. Emails updating our flight status reached us as we were on board the airplane. Not helpful. We reached home at midnight when we had planned to be there by 9pm, in order to shop before Sunday. Even though we weren't in a time crunch to arrive, my time is obviously not valued by this airline. I will make every effort to NOT fly this airline in the future."
Pros: "Very relaxed and nice crew. Pilot gave us an excellent smooth flight with a great landing. A bit cramped but the crew and flight made up for it."
Pros: "Actually did not like at all."
Cons: "The sit was very uncomfortable, no reclining chair at all. No drinks, could not have a free middle bag carry on, the stuff at the bording were so rude. I felt like bording a restrict bus with unhappy crew!!"
Pros: "The staff and crew were very professional"
Cons: "No dislikes. We were delayed taking off but such is life on a red eye flight."
Cons: "The unannounced delay of over an hour, the incredibly uncomfortable seats, the unannounced charge of carry on bag. The flight attendants from Denver to Charlotte were rude and not accommodating. The exit row in front of me was completely empty however instead of being able to move to a more spacious seat in the empty row, I was told I needed to pay an extra 50 dollars. I sat on a long red eye flight very uncomfortable while the three open seats in the exit row went unused."
Pros: "Smooth flight and arrived earlier than planned"
Cons: "The little in back of kicking my chair. And took forever for baggage claim to distribute luggage."
Pros: "The flight ticket was cheap"
Cons: "I did not realize the changes frontier had made to thier airlines. The seats were hard as a rock had to pay for my check bag and carry on and soda even. Had I known I was going to spend more in the end I would have chosen a different airline in the first place"
Pros: "Seats were so close together they had to scoop out the back of the seat in front of you to make knee room. The seats did not recline. Which was ok for this short trip but would be bad on a longer flight. Flight attendants were excellent. Flight left on time. Arrive early. All good things. Bad:!you had to pay for everything except water. Good: the plane was noticeably clean!"
Pros: "The flight was very cheap and even checking my bag for a one way flight it was much more reasonable then any other flight I looked at. The crew was also very nice."
Cons: "I woke up for my flight which was supposed to be at noon and the flight had already been delayed by two hours. I wasn't going to be leaving until after I was supposed to arrive at my destination. I was hoping for the flight to change back, so I got to the airport with ample time and ended up sitting around for a long time. Don't understand how it could have been delayed four hours before it was supposed to even leave."
Cons: "Same as above. Terrible experience"
Cons: "Longest security line I have ever seen and I travel in a lot of countries all over the world that have outrageous security lines. Had an hour and a half to get through security and still missed the flight. Nothing could be done because the next flight was in 3 days."
Cons: "Frontier staff, beginning with check-in were unprofessional, unfriendly and not customer focused. Our flight was late and there was very little communication as to why. It turns out that the lock on the lavatory door was broken so they had to duck tape it shut. A woman fainted as she was boarding the plane --- the paramedics were called. No announcement was made about the situation and passengers continued to board, stepping over this poor woman laying on the ground. The seats on the plane were incredibly uncomfortable and the crew unfriendly."
