Pros: "The crew on both legs of our trip were nice and accommodating."
Pros: "This is a delayed flight after having my flight to the previous night delayed to the extent that I could not take it and make my connecting flight out of Minneapolis."
Cons: "This is a delayed flight after having my flight to the previous night delayed to the extent that I could not take it and make my connecting flight out of Minneapolis."
Pros: "The crew was super friendly and professional. Enjoyed the reworked safety message before take-off."
Cons: "The Comfort+ seat, while it had plenty of leg room in front, had a small width-box that many Americans (being larger than perhaps they should be) will find extremely uncomfortable at best, and unable to fit in at worst."
Pros: "Reliable Airline - on time - kept up to date on flight timing - Great crews."
Cons: "Good stuff."
Cons: "Cramped seats, no a/c on tarmac for extended period because of technical issue, ancient entertainment system. Old plane with minimal overhead bin space, delayed flight"
Pros: "There is Nothing that like"
Cons: "If you allowed me to get in this flight everything would've been fine.?"
Pros: "crew was amazing"
Cons: "there was water leaking from window during landing and the food was not hot and was just bland and uncooked"
Pros: "On time arrival is always appreciated."
Cons: "Overhead compartment jammed with someone else's carry on. We paid for "comfort seating" and I frankly didn't see any difference - if there was more room on those seats, it was small enough I couldn't SEE it."
Cons: "Seat assignment with Economy ticket."
Pros: "I appreciate how Delta always takes care of their passengers. Comfortable seating and accessible entertainment"
Pros: "Early and middle seat was open!"
Cons: "Coffee tasted like fish. :("
Pros: "Having three seats."
Cons: "I had three seats to myself! After getting elbowed all the way from Amsterdam to Minneapolis, I was tired and I slept three good hours."
Pros: "The crew was very nice. Quite helpful and pleasant."
Cons: "The only small item is the gate size in MSP. Always a bit crowded but still departed on time so it’s not a large issue."
Pros: "Crew members were all very friendly and made the flight a nice trip as best they could."
Cons: "It would make a lot more sense for people to board from the back and window seats first so that we are not climbing over each other to get to our tiny seats."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Seats did not recline"
Cons: "Plane journey awful. Speaker had a loud buzzing noise all the time so never heard a word bad landing. Rattling plane Very cold."
Pros: "Great"
Cons: "Great"
Pros: "Great service. Smooth flight. Funny flight attendants. No issues boarding or deplaning."
Cons: "Food wasn’t great. What’s new?"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Take a long time to taxi to the gate & getting off the plane."
Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "This was an older, smaller plane and it had more leg room. Appears I’ll have to start checking Delta to see what birds flying the leg."
Pros: "Great overall flight, as expected in Delta’s first class."
Cons: "Boarding was a little confused. Crew was excellent as usual, but seemed to stop service in the last hour. Food was good, but they ran out of my preferred option. No screen entertainment, but access to entertainment was available via the WiFi."
Pros: "Overall experience was awesome. Always love to fly delta. Nice spacious and clean aircraft. Enjoyed the entertainment system."
Pros: "On time, comfortable, great flight attendants."
Pros: "Loved having the Movie and tv options on the flight, really passed the time"
Cons: "Flight was overbooked, seat assignment at gate, was very anxiety provoking. I was concerned would not get on flight."
Cons: "The flight was a Christmas gift for my mother to spend some time with her friends in Mazatlán. I heard she spent the entire day waiting at the airport as her flight was rescheduled 4 times."
Cons: "1 hour delay, no explanation, no weather problems, late for my meeting in Houston."
Pros: "Quick boarding, clean plane, good entertainment system."
Cons: "Used a neck/back pillow and jacket against hull to try and keep my shoulder and arm from freezing solid. I usually sit by the window on a couple dozen flights per year, and it has never been this cold on my arm. I wonder if a heating pad would work on their outlet?"
Pros: "It got me home, eventually."
Cons: "Poor communication, a 6 hour delay followed by a 7 hour layover (during which we had to sleep on an airport floor because Delta couldn't offer us any hotel vouchers). Gate agents disappeared after 7pm becuase they were due to be done with their shifts when our flight was originally supposed to leave at 6 pm. It felt like we were trapped in the movie The Terminal. Oh! And our bag was misrouted, because that was just how things went those 2 days. All in all a 6 hour trip turned into 18 hours. I could have driven home in that amount of time!"
Pros: "Everything was in order"
Cons: "None really"
Pros: "I was traveling for medical reasons and the Delta crew took great care of me, made sure I was at my connecting gate on time, and even put me in a better seat on the plane. Not sure if that was a coincidental upgrade, or intentional, but it was perfect."
Pros: "Good selection of movies/shows."
Cons: "Flight was delayed half an hour due to “medical emergency”. Guy passed out as we were about to take off so we turned back to the gate and sat on the plane for over 30 mins while we waited for medical personnel to check the guy out. Then had to wait another 15 mins for the fuel truck to refill us because we had burnt so much sitting there. I understand that we had to turn back due to his condition but why was he not removed from the plane and put on a later flight when he felt better instead of making all of us late? You would think after all this the crew would be kind and appreciate our patience but 2 of the flight attendants were the exact opposite of that. Both of them were very short with people and the one kept rolling her eyes at people as they were handing out drinks. The only thing I would give 5 stars is the tv entertainment. My seat wouldn’t even recline for me to enjoy though."
Cons: "Too tight and seats not comfortable."
Cons: "On the MSP to ATL leg the gate crew made a huge deal about checking rolling bags. They even stopped us at check-in and nearly begged us to check our bags pointing to the backed up jetway. But we had a lot of unpacking to do before checking our bags so we politely declined three times. On getting to our seats there were at least 8 open slots for bags near us. I heard a crew member call forward to say "tell them no more rollaboards" so they forced everyone left to check. On departure they slammed shut several very large empty overheads. WTF"
Pros: "It got me to SFO earlyish"
Cons: "Was told to go away and wait for name to appear on screen for seat assignment. Was seated apart from travel companion. Got to sit next to folks with questionable hygiene, seat broken. Seatbelt broken. Stuck in back of plane window seat and was supposed to be “happy”. I was brilliantly ignored by crew. Seat back entertainment broken snd flight crew never answered the call button. Got to watch bag handlers throw and drop luggage like true gorillas. Delta, this time you truely are the worst. Wont book you again."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The stewardess was extremely polite, though the pilot was less chatty (probably due to lack of turbulence during the flight). Decided to risk drinking the coffee again, and was pleasantly surprised that it actually tasted good."
Pros: "The food was good. The entertainment choices were plentiful."
Cons: "I missed having a personal vent by the individual lights above the seats."
Pros: "I'm very satisfied."
Cons: "No comemt"
Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Staff were a bit rude. The boarding process was slow as everyone rushed up when they announced the first zone to board, and obviously this was not policed. We didn't get our seats until we got to the gate because apparently we bought our tickets too soon to take off, which was three weeks. Also, staff claimed there wasn't enough bin space so asked people to check their bags. We saw people with two big bags get on board at the start, and then staff made everyone at the back of the line check their bags. But there was plenty of bin space before take off. And we were seated in the last row which can't recline."
Pros: "Wonderful experience with the staff."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "No entertainment Small overhead bind"
Pros: "Great crew. Good space on my exit row seat"
Cons: "Seat doesn't recline, though it's considered a "premium" seat. No power either. Ticketing process was crazy - I was not able to get a seat assignment until 5 minutes before boarding. Why? And there was no explanation of the situation. I had to ask, multiple times, what was going on,before I was finally told that I was going to get on, but they just didn't know where. This could be handled much more clearly!"
Pros: "Not too much this leg!"
Cons: "Baggage retrieval was horrendous! Absolutely a nightmare which after paying for 3 nights hotel with no discount, I was further inconvenienced by the inability to receive my 2nd luggage and after requesting it be delivered, I, I, tracked my bag and you chose to send it 3 days ahead to my destination and I HAVE NOT RECEIVED any acknowledgment of my online inquiry which is why I am complaining. I've had to purchase a new set of luggage AND will have to pay for them on my next 2 legs on Delta. I apologise for seeming so harsh as I know you've had so much trouble because of the tornadoes, but this leg of my trip cost me an additional $800.00 plus AUD and I was here in the US to care for my father who recently had a 2nd heart attack and my final days in USA were meant to be a holiday, and all I can say is the stress because these expenses have removed any enjoyment (I know I'm looking at this half empty, not half full). I'm glad to share this and hope you're company loses will be recouped after this mess! Daniel Grayson Craigieburn, VIC Australia"
Pros: "Seated my husband I together (finally) at very back of plane next to window (not our preference)."
Cons: "My husband and I although booked together were seated in middle seats 9 rows apart. We atrempted to change our seats online at KLM (not possible), online at Delta (didn't recognize our KLM purchased flight), in person at KLM counter in SVG, in person with THE Delta rep at the check-in gate in AMS...no one could help us due to different systems used for seating for each company that the other one doesn't have access to. Flights booked by one company and operated by another seem common enough that this system needs to be improved. - Silver KLM travelers Also WAY too hot on plane."
Pros: "plane left on time"
Cons: "seats were too close, luggage was delayed,"
Pros: "?"
Cons: "The seat in this plane is the narrowest and most uncomfortable I have ever encountered in business."
Pros: "On time and very smooth boarding"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Availability of First Class service was the only saving grace."
Cons: "Delays longer than the scheduled flight time. Entertainment options are limited in the time of such a short flight. Long distance between gates when you have been forced into a hurry by delays."
Pros: "Good handling of a late flight--made my connection, but without bags, and they kept us well fed and informed while waiting.."
Cons: "Of course the delay, but it happens."
Cons: "The stewards crew was very very very rude. The airplane looked like its going to come apart any minute. We could actually see rust in the wings of the airplane. I think the plane should be retired, for the sake of the flyers!!!!"

Everything went perfectly. Check-in, bag drop, etc. The flight and crew were excellent.

Cons: "The flight was delayed."
Pros: "Speedy boarding. Helpful crew."
Cons: "In-flight entertainment"
Pros: "nothing. Plane never left."
Cons: "Airlines that actually fly. We ended up renting a car and driving the 3.5 hours from Charlotte to Savannah and actually beat the flight that finally left after 11 pm and landed 1 am. We should have gotten the car much sooner and driven instead of sitting at the airport for 8 hours."
Pros: "The attendant for my area was amazing. I was in the back of the plane and he was friendly. He helped me look for my power cord. He is an outstanding member of your team!"
Cons: "Nope, this was a great flight!"
Cons: "I've flown American airlines twice this year. The service and flights have been very good. One thing I'd like to see is a variety of snack options."
Pros: "Boarding process was easy."
Cons: "Different snack options."
Pros: "Trip went smoothly"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Equipment was adequate. I liked the on board emergency instructions!"
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic—no lines, just a mass of people all trying to get to the same place.The crew did their job but weren’t particularly friendly."
Pros: "Crew was great. Made sure I made my connection. Even tried to get me a better placement so I could quickly exit and head to my next flight."
Cons: "It wa super cold on my second flight. Small plane, rather loud."
Pros: "Landing and take off."
Cons: "Nothing. Everything was great!"
Cons: "The security check line was about a mile long at the Terminal 1, but that's not the airline's fault."
Pros: "Everyone was super friendly. The plane was clean and comfortable and the food was great for airplane food."
Pros: "Generally, the stewardess are new (slow service), but very kind and considerate."
Cons: "I take this flight quite a lot. These comments are for this flight (MIA/MSP) - but not necessarily only for this exact flight that I took on 10/1. To be clear - the crew says "this is not AA", it is Republic Airlines". Well, they must think of themselves very poorly. Their food in first class is always changing - oh, I meant only the names for the same exact meal change. "Grilled Chicken with Couscous", "Grilled Chicken with Risotto", etc.. - all cold meals as they do not have an oven/microwave? on the plane. They are charging first class international prices for economy domestic service. For this amount of money, they should have better meals and a more modern airplane. The first class is always freezing (even in summer) while the rear cabin where the crew stays when not working, is hot. So if they make the first class happy with the correct temperature, they cook in the back. I have also observed more people than usual coughing and getting colds - both ways - than any of the other flights I take regularly (over 115,000 miles on AA this year). I would suggest that AA make it clear that Republic must offer better service to their customers - especially for the large airfares they are receiving."
Pros: "They seem to have more time for the passengers then other airlines do"
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Delayed for some unknown reason"
Pros: "Let's see - I was in first class. The flight itself was fine - and only one hour + late!"
Cons: "Food - Served the "breakfast" (when it was called a protein plate) I had coming (into MSP). for "lunch" on the way back (called it a meat plate for lunch. One slice turkey, one slice jamon, one egg, cinnamon roll and fruit. Just because they don't want to serve bread - they call it a protein plate? I'm not on a protein diet. Food was pretty sick for the amount I paid for the fight. Stewardess said it was against Republic's rules to give a customer a can of tonic water (so I could add to the small amount of vodka) - she also told me that it was against Delta's, American's and United's rules to give a can - strange? First Class seat did not recline. First Class was freezing per every flight on this segment (the stewardesses sit in the back and don't want to be uncomfortable - if they make the front warm - the back is too hot for them (not joking on this one). So many things to list - that I will finish on the AA site."
Cons: "Old, small seats, no tv, no WiFi"
Pros: "The crew on the plane was lovely."
Cons: "Waiting for maintenance, leaving late, running through the airport. No help from airport staff. They really seemed like that they didn’t care a bit if people made there flights. We barely made our connection to London. People who are 59 should NOT have to run through a huge airport! We spent a lot of money and planned this trip for nearly a year. There were no updates from Kayak. I will use Expedia from now on."
Cons: "Flight delays and cancellations."
Pros: "Good communication from the captain"
Cons: "The delays"
Pros: "Comfortable and simple flight"
Pros: "Late..."
Pros: "Called 1-800 hotline and got a new flight"
Cons: "Was at gate onntime for flight. At boarding time passengers were informed if there was an issue with the plane and maintenance is on their way to check out the problem. 30 minutes later we were still till that maintenance is on their way. One hour later there is still no information as far as when the fight will leave but they kept updating the boarding time. There was only one person of the counter who could help re-assign passengers to different flights due to their layovers. After waiting in line for 40 minutes and the line making no movement I called the airline 1-800 hundred number and explain my situation to the American Airlines Airlines representative. they really give me a new flight that left 20 minutes later after my call if I did not call I would not mean it that flight nor any other fights that morning because they're all in the afternoon."
Cons: "Only served half people beverages. No entertainment"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Bathrooms didn't work delaying initial departure an hour. Ran to connecting flight and made it prior to door being closed. 12 passengers in total were told that we would be boarded and then were abrubly told none would be boarding our final leg to the Caymans even though our seats were available. Horrible company culture not focused on customers."
Cons: "Took off late from Minneapolis only to announce that there was something wrong with the plane, no explanation as to what but that we had to circle to burn off fuel before returning to Minneapolis. Switched to a flight to D.C. with a connection to get to LGA. As soon as we sat down on that flight an announcement was made that we wouldn't make our connecting flight. Got to D.C. and asked to switch to go into Westchester instead of LGA which we were denied. So changed to another connecting flight to LGA that didn't take off on time. Offered nothing for any of the inconveniences. Etc."
Cons: "was seated between 2 to very overweight persons, the person in the aile side, extrememly heavy needed extension belt, plus removing the arm rest next to me and using great part of my seat. not a very comfortable situation and the plane was FULL, no empty seats"
Cons: "eh. not enough space, like most airlines these days. Flight wasn't long enough to hate it though."
Pros: "Wider seats."
Cons: "N/A"
Cons: "I left an expensive Bose head set in my seat that could not be found....or did smobody decide it was better in their possession.?"
Pros: "The amount of legroom is insane. Super comfortable flight, very nice staff."
Pros: "Price"
Cons: "Arrived 1 hr before my flight and they wouldn't check me in. I believe they overbook the flight and turn customer down. They even gave me hard time during rebooking us. Never again."
Cons: "delayed 2 hrs in perfect weather"
Pros: "straight through flight no connection. Crew was friendly and smiled."
Cons: "I do not like that you have to pay to choose a decent seat. Our flight was slightly delayed in boarding, and was not communicated."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and competent."
Cons: "Airlines have an industry wide problem. They INTENTIONALLY make every part of flying miserable so that passengers will pay anything to make it less painful. For example... if you want to make boarding quicker, build the cost of checked luggage into ticket prices so that you don't have people carrying everything on and clogging up the process. Or use the existing and publicly available research to improve boarding mechanisms... but that would mean you lose an opportunity to squeeze extra cash out of people for 'priority boarding'. This phenomenon is real, and currently be investigated by congress. Call your senator."
Pros: "Boarding was easy and flights were on time."
Cons: "Crew could have been a little more friendly and the planes were a bit dated...although I know AA is in the process of replacing their fleet."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled we were re-routed and didn't get there until 24hours later."
Pros: "Quick board and exit, fast check-in"
Cons: "Wi-Fi onboard free for all T Mobile customers, cramped seat room for a smaller adult even"
Pros: "Assigned seating, snacks, touch screen media feature."
Cons: "Staff could have been more friendly."
Pros: "The food, in flight entertainment and attention to detail by the Flight Attendants was very good."
Cons: "The personnel handling the front desk at check in gave myself and others bad information about how to check a bag. Which resulted in me being called to the desk at the gate about 30 minutes prior to boarding and being told I screwed up checking my bag when I was just following the instructions given to me. Was then told I had to leave the secure area of the airport, go back to the front to check my bag all within 30 minutes of boarding. when I returned thru the TSA checkpoint they were rude, obviously, but more importantly the flight was boarding early. So you could've 1. told me what the actual procedure is for checking my bag instead of telling me "just leave it by the green lit up check mark then 2. told me at the gate that not only do i need to go fix your mistakes for you but that youd also board my flight early thereby putting me in jeopardy of missing my flight. all i got was a very insincere apology when I complained up front and at the gate about the airline's screw up. i get that you're all human like me and make mistakes but the customer is always right. there was a time in this country when customer appreciation and service were important standards and qualities businesses thrived on. Don't know what happened to those days... Also i should not need to be a first class passenger to get a meal during a flight. whatever happened to meals for everyone? you (all airlines in the US) charge way too much money and provide poor service compared to pre-9-11 days. I dont see how one event can justify the loss in service but the increase in ticket price. you should all get back to what flying should be about: fun and time saving."
Cons: "Think it is ridiculous that I had to pay so much to select a seat ahead of time, and it was just a regular seat. I can understand for extra legroom or exit row, but for a regular seat, that is ridiculous. Then there was a fee to change priority boarding, so I could ensure I was able to have my carry-on with me, instead of risk having it go underneath. Unable to use the entertainment, as I was unaware had to use my own device, which I had not set up in advance."
Pros: "The staff tried to help as much as possible."
Cons: "I called American Airlines as ssoon as I book my trip to set up and make sure my small dog could fly with me. They neglected to inform me their partner, jetstar, does not fly animals. My luggage did not arrive with me. Both of my suitcases were mangled and broken. Items in my suitcases were shattered and crushed even though they were well packed and protected. We got stuck on the terminal in MSP and missed our connecting flight. When we finally arrived the systems were down and could not get new flights or hotels. We were told we could not get hotels and had to argue for an hour. Even though it was a maintenance issue. I arrived a day late and had to take extra leave. The plane from LAX to Tokyo was horrific. I booked a window seat, was stuck in the very middle. There was no way to charge outlets devices. The screen did not work. And my new luggage was also damaged with even more items destroyed."
Cons: "They didn't give my parents who are in their 80s seats together, that's not right."
Pros: "The flights left on time and arrived early. It reminded me of the old days when everything ran like clock-work."
Cons: "The leg room was barely enough for me and I'm 5'4". I can't imagine people much larger than me being comfortable at all. Also, the chair made my back hurt, so I did a lot of sitting up straight as opposed to being "in the chair". I noticed that you had snacks for purchase on the flight, but the free snacks were cookies and pretzels. It would be nice to offer a trail mix or dried fruit. Pretzels are good for people who might be a little sick at their stomach, but better snacks are a nice option. I ordered coffee and it was perfect. Overall, the flight was a good flight, just a little tweaking and it would be great. Thanks for asking."
Pros: "Friendly and prompt service."
Pros: "Pretzels and drinks."
Cons: "The group's for boarding are ridiculous. The back of the plane should board first and so on... the new plane we flew on had the smallest seats we've ever seen. When we tried to board, the crew would rudely say, it's not your turn. We were flying for a funeral and paid a lot for our tickets. We should be treated with respect. One lady said to put our luggage in the first available compartment, then when we tried, another lady rudely said, if that's not where you're sitting, you can't put your bag there. We were embarrassed and when we tried to explain what we'd been told she told us to keep moving."
Cons: "The wheel chair assistance that was requested for the passenger was not provided in Dallas and London."
Pros: "boarding was well organized and flowed well crew was nice and courteous"
Cons: "Seats seem quite narrow standard fare of biscuits to go with drink"
Pros: "Crew was nice, drinks"
Cons: "Ended up landing in Oklahoma, no hotel available even with the voucher, no food in airport,"

Flight was on time, landed early, but sat on the tarmac for over an hour after landing. It was hot

Pros: "Good job"
Pros: "Biarding"
Cons: "Internet WiFi"
Cons: "We were delayed for an hour sitting in the tarmac because of “VIP” which sucked"
Pros: "Seem to be a smooth and direct flight"
Cons: "The flight was fine however my seat was next to the bathroom and people would occasionaly Bump in to me ."
Pros: "On-time departure. Grouped boarding"
Cons: "Had to gate check bag, but I’ve flown this flight often enough to know that. Missed beverage service while dozing . Cart was just 2 rows past and never got a chance."
Pros: "I cant say nothing but can say everything was good"
Cons: "I cant say nothing but can say everything was good"
Cons: "The legroom is non-existent. I sure wish airlines didn't try to put so many seats in each aircraft."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed out of Mpls 2 hours so we had to rebook everything since we would miss our connection in Denver to Honolulu. The process of rebooking was terrible -- took almost 2 hours standing in line and the booking agent wasn't knowledgable Had to make an additional stop in LAX and arrived in Honolulu 5 hours later than we were supposed to. VERY disappointing experience all around!"
Pros: "Flight was quick and the flight attendants were nice"
Cons: "I'm 6' tall and my head was above the headrest, so it wasn't super comfortable to lay back."
Pros: "Service and respect very good"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The price of a ticket is slightly lower. It is not enough of a difference to make the plethora of inconveniences worth it. You are not a valued customer with this fare. If United values customers, they shouldn't offer this fare. That's why I don't fly the bargain airlines."
Cons: "You can't check in at the kiosk on basic economy without an employee badge swipe, and there were no employees available. I had to stop checking in, wait in line, and then the employee that I talked to didn't have the right kind of badge to swipe. So I waited again. Extremely inconvenient. Even after being forced to talk to a ticket agent at check in, they still won't issue a seat. So you have to go to the gate and wait in line again to get a seat. The system is built for maximum inefficiency. It doesn't cost less for them to make me talk to two separate people, it is only to inconvenience the flyer for buying a cheaper ticket. It seems like a punitive system. Boarding was organized and painless. The crew seemed polite. Regarding comfort, the "leg room" on the airbus is ridiculous. I am average height and felt claustrophobic. I can't imagine how a tall person feels. There was no " entertainment" on my flight, so one star for that. I didn't not receive any food and was not offered water, 1 star."
Pros: "Always raved about my experience. This time was not impressed. The people who initially took our bags were great, there after... not good."
Cons: "Arrived at 0750, ahead of schedule and waited until 0915 to get off the plane due to an error with the gate and then a malfunction of equipment. Now waiting for our baggage for 40 min. still nothing. Disappointing start to an already short vacay."
Cons: "It was not made clear at all that I was buying a basic economy ticket and was not going to be allowed to take a carry on. That was really frustrating."
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Snack"
Pros: "service is good."
Pros: "So grateful the flight waited for us because our flight was delayed because of mechanical problems. The take off and landing were great and flight attendants Were great also. Snacks were marginal but served with a smile!"
Cons: "Snacks and that our previous flight was delayed and the stress of not knowing if we would make our flight"
Pros: "Easy in/out of the plane."
Cons: "Wifi Entertainment wasn't working."
Pros: "Good flight"
Cons: "Update the planes, been in other airlines with updated technology"
Pros: "Being on time"
Cons: "The crew & boarding. Awful snacks."
Cons: "I'm disappointed that I had to pay to watch the flight tracker, that it wasn't a free option and I had to be continually subjected to commercials that were irrelevant to me."
Cons: "Unable to pre-check online. Unable to check at the check in machines--had to go up and check in at the counter, long wait because there was only one clerk. We were then given a ticket just to get through security and had to check in a second time when we get to the gate for seat assignment, which is ridiculous. Why couldn't that be done at the 1st check-in? The clerk told me she will call me when she has the seat assignment/ boarding ticket but she never did and I had to go back up to ask for them when it was getting close to boarding time. At the last moment minutes, volunteers could check in their carry on for free....It would have been nice (and less hassle) to have that option at the 1st check-in."
Pros: "Fast flight and great service"
Pros: "I appreciate that United hasn't gotten greedy with baggage charges and has kept their seating comfortable. Last Frontier flight was RIDICULOUS!!"
Cons: "Can't rate a flight that was cancelled 2 1/2 hours before it was to take off. They cancelled my flight, re-routed me to three flights going through la. I talked with a gate agent who got me an earlier flight to L.A bit the layover was huge. Was supposed to be in sac at 11am got here at 5"
Pros: "I really like almost everything about flying with Lufthansa."
Cons: "Checking in and obtaining my boarding pass was a less than satisfying experience. Initially I could not check in until arrived at the airport because the first leg of my trip was Lufthansa through United? I tried to check in on BOTH United and lufthansa's website neither worked. I then spent about 45 minutes on the phone with a Lufthansa representitave just to find out I would be unable to check in until I arrived at the airport the next day. Once I checked in to the airport I could only get my seat for the first flight and was told I would have to get my subsequent seats while on layover. When I arrived at my layover, while trying to get my seat for the next flight I was told they were overbooked and I would have to wait 'over there' until they could figure out a place for me to sit. But when the attendant printed my ticket she was shocked to find out I had a seat, and angrily reported that 'I don't know how YOU got a seat, but you did. So go get in line for the flight!' That said, I did get in line, I did get fairly decent seats the whole trip, and all but one employee were overly helpful and nice. However it would have been far less stressful if I was just able to check in for the initial flight."
Pros: "Good crew"
Cons: "Delayed"
Pros: "friendly staff"
Cons: "first class seats not comfy. No wi-fi on the entire outbound. I had paid $149 to upgrade to first class. With no movies, no wi-fi, and being a vegetarian with 2 chicken entrees (chicken sandwich or chicken salad!) and no extra room, I decided to drink. I had 3 "free drinks" in first class, which was like paying $50 for a vodka tonic without a lime (3 times). Save you $$$"
Cons: "Every flight I had was delayed at least an hour, and one of my flights was delayed 2.5 hours, which caused me to miss an important meeting. When I asked why it was taking so long, the United customer service representative was very short and somewhat rude. Not a great experience this time that's for sure."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "Airplane was damaged and united wouldn't rebook us until the flight was officially cancelled hours later. Then United provided only one service person to address all of the passengers needs so we had to stand in line for a couple hours longer. Then they had no hotel rooms to put anybody up for the night that couldn't get a flight until the next day. Then they gave us a measly $10 food voucher. Then our luggage was mishandled has still has not shown up to my house. Then because of the change in flights I had to rearrange transportation home at 1130 pm that cost me an extra $125. A very miserable day because of United's lack of being proactive and poor decision making given the situation and circumstances."
Cons: "The flight was delayed multiple times causing me to have to literally run across airport to catch international connecting flight. Gate crew did very little to assist me in securing an alternate flight. On board crew did little to assist me in finding out information and getting me off the plane quickly to get to my connecting flight. Overall they showed little empathy and customer service."
Pros: "First leg had free streaming on your own device, which was awesome!"
Pros: "The flight was safe, the crew courteous and hard working."
Cons: "Seating is horrific. It is not healthy fur people."
Pros: "When I got on the plane"
Cons: "Late by more then an hour and I missed my connection home. I had to stay the night in Denver and miss a day of work. This cost me an extra day and about $1000 worth of missed revenue."
Pros: "Overall good flight. Very quick! :) nice pilot"
Cons: "Nothing in particular."
Cons: "One strange thing happened on my United airlines flight. The crew announced before we boarded that there wasn't enough overhead space for rolling bags and encouraged us to check them in. Upon boarding they announced that all overhead space in the back was full. I sat in the back and noticed that the crew closed the overhead compartments even though they were mostly empty. Another passenger opened an empty one and the crew came over and closed it right away, though many people were still boarding. What's going on?"
Cons: "Very slow boarding. The entire last boarding group had to gate check our bags, despite there being lots of room in the overhead bins when we got on. Then we had to go to baggage claim to retrieve them, rather than having them unloaded quickly and returned to us when we de-boarded. My carry-on is no longer clean; it not has big black spots on it, and came though the baggage claim partially wet from the rain. I was not happy."
Cons: "Flight was over 2 hrs delayed so I couldn't even take the flight. Waste of my money. Paid 330 dollars and got nothing. Now United nor you guys are helping. Never again will I use this site"
Pros: "Comfortable seats ,they seem to have a new ergonomic design that make them more comfy . More leg room even in regular economy seating."
Cons: "Staff wasn't very talkative just kinda did the basic beverage service and that's it . Not rude but not overly friendly either . The crews that work for Southwest make you laugh and they're so much more interactive with passengers ."
Pros: "Actually probably should have given 5 stars"
Cons: "Every flight flight I have flown is awaiting aircraft or crew"
Pros: "None"
Cons: "No refund for my resheduling of flght. I has a valid reason with a valid documentaion"
Pros: "Friendly crew, easy boarding"
Cons: "Small uncomfortable seats"
Cons: "Due to the frequent gate change updates from Kayak we ended up at the wrong terminal. Because of this we were late for our flight which they would not let us get boarding passes for so they bumped us to a flight 2 hrs later. After getting through security we realized the original flight was delayed. We asked the airline if we could get back on that flight and we were rudely told no without a good reason. So we sat for what ended up being and hour looking at the plane we "missed" before it took off. No using United again."
Cons: "I'm not a cofee guy , meat and potatoes right. The carmel wafer cookie thing, not bad. I like peanuts one bag plain, one bag honey roasted perfect. Then the second carmel wafer came, I guess what choice do I have. The accountants have won, flat tasteless wafers fly best due to form factor plus most will not take another once they've had the first. Maybe several selections of the flavored wafer cookie? Imagine beer with a salsa wafer, wine with cheese garlic wafer, coffee and cheesecake wafer. In app selection or purchase by seat number. You customize your entertainment and refreshments. Yeah you had to pack light and get a millipeeper scan, but now for some reward. The new plane is nice, smooth surface seating, clean carpet. Not grossed out at all. Could not review the toilet, have never been. The wafer thingy is not refined enough yet. easy fix."
Pros: "Flight was on time - smooth ride also"
Pros: "Clean comfortable ride"
Pros: "Friendly stewerdasses"
Cons: "Flight left almost 2 hours late for something that was not even fixes but ignored by flight crew. Missed connecting flight and was only offered $14 food voucher and a stay at a really crappy hotel 20 minute drive from airport . A really disappointing first impression, possibly my last....... Not sure yet"
Pros: "Snacks"
Cons: "Route tracker was unavailable."
Pros: "Crew was good, plane was new. More room under Seats than most planes. Seemed you could avoid carry-on a bit easier. Prompt with checked bags."
Cons: "They didn't open check baggage desk until 2 hours Prior to flight. Many folks didn't understand that."
Pros: "Crew was great. Plane left and arrived on time."
Cons: "Window seats should load earlier so I don't have to climb over everyone."
Cons: "Seats are VERY uncomfortable. Staff is not really friendly. First time on Frontier, I will try to avoid it if I can"
Cons: "It was already a late flight originally. The first flight was canceled and there was mixed communication from the staff. Online said due to weather but couldn’t explain what weather was canceling the flight. Then the lady at the front desk said it was due to no available pilots. Also more issues"
Cons: "I was enjoying accept no food lolz"
Pros: "The flight was safe."
Cons: "Everything."
Pros: "Effective crew"
Cons: "Check in process, boarding process, food service, WiFi"
Pros: "Great price, great staff"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Flight was shorter than planned, that’s always a treat. No delays or hiccups."
Cons: "Two of the crew in the back were very unprofessional. Sarcastic, immature and I heard way too much of their personal conversation and I had head phones on"
Cons: "While trying to arrange a flight home from college for my son after the tragedy here in Las Vegas, I accidently clicked the wrong flight. I called immediately and they said sorry there is nothing they could do. Zero customer service. I hope they enjoy the money for the flight that wasn't able to be used."
Pros: "On time departure and arrival."
Cons: "Seats keep getting smaller and less leg room."
Cons: "There were several delays and gate changes and no one gave us a reason or an explanation. We were just shuffled around the airport. Frustrating!!!!"
Cons: "The plane was left standing in the runway for an hour past midnight, even though the airport was not busy. This led to further delays in renting a car, and we lost a good nights sleep for our short weekend."
Pros: "The price was good. Good landings."
Cons: "No entertainment and seats did not recline."
Cons: "Seats and traytables are both issues. Uncomfortable and made for a rough trip even with a short flight time"
Pros: "Inexpensive flight. Quiet."
Cons: "For the price, nothing."
Pros: "The crew on my flight from Minneapolis to Denevr was funny and warm and friendly and really amusing. I believe their names were Chris and Tate (I might have his name wrong) . Thank you, Tate, for being such a funny and entertaining person on what would otherwise have been a very boring flight. I hope he's on my next flight with Frontier."
Cons: "The seats are uncomfortable."
Pros: "They cancelled last minute and I was forced to buy a last minute ticket on a different airline"
Cons: "Plane was too hot"
Pros: "Left on time"
Cons: "We arrived and had to wait 20 minutes for a gate. After making to the gate we went to baggage claim and waited 45 minutes because they did not know where our bags went. I missed my scheduled shuttle to Fort Collins due to the wait for my bags, it has ruined my whole day."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Charging for the carry on and shipped bag was a very unpleasant surprise at check-in. The non-reclining seats were terribly uncomfortable. All of my flights were delayed for one reason or another. Charging for sodas was unexpected. I was very disappointed in this flight and I will never book a flight with Frontier again due to these negative experiences. There are many choices for airlines and Frontier really let me down."
Pros: "The crew at MSP were very kind and clearly did their best to make us comfortable"
Cons: "The flight info wasn't clear, the airline didn't keep the website up to date and made it very difficult to know how to proceed."
Cons: "The check in counter wasn't opened or staffed until 8:25am when our flight was at 10:10am. The line was incredibly long because of this. The staff was very unfriendly and they were not helpful at all."
Pros: "low price"
Cons: "seats did not recline"
Pros: "The person besides me."
Cons: "We waited 40 minutes on the tarmac. :("
Pros: "The flight was too noisy and took too long for us to get off"
Cons: "Long wait on tarmac at Denver - Frontier Airlines really down hill with fees for carry on and being able to pick your seat. Flying on Frontier is like riding on an old greyhound bus."
Cons: "I didn't find out my flight was cancelled until after I arrived at the airport and tried to check my bag. I didn't get a cancellation notice until my plane was supposed to leave. Very disappointed with kayak and Frontier."
Cons: "I ended up paying over 180% of my ticket price for this trip because of extra fees. No thanks, Frontier. I'll fly other airlines where the cost of the trip is clear from the start."
Cons: "Delayed both in Mpls and Denver!"
Cons: "Be careful flying budget airlines. Their gate options are few if something goes wrong."
Cons: "i did not receive the option of a beverage. I sat in the rear of the plane, and by the time the crew was near me, there was not any more time to allow the option of a beverage."
Cons: "Paid two different prices for checked luggage. Msp to den paid $35, and den to Msp paid $30. Why is that?????"
Pros: "slightly less expensive than normal airlines, but not more that $30 less. I arrived at my destination in one piece."
Cons: "By the time I had paid for the flight and baggage, I almost had paid for the American Airlines flight that was also available. The flight was delayed for multiple hours due to mechanical issues. I think it was the worst landing I've ever experienced. For the inconvenience of our long delay, Frontier gave us vouchers, but there is a long list of restrictions: must be used within 90 days, cannot be used to pay for the entire fare, etc. I find the voucher to be an insult."
Pros: "The price was cheap."
Cons: "It was unclear that you needed to pay a fee for a carry on bag with this airline."
Pros: "Only redeeming thing was the ONE girl working to reschedule our flight and coordinate our hotel. She was clearly overworked but still was polite."
Cons: "Terrible communication. Terrible organization."
Pros: "Horrible never again use frontier airline"
Pros: "I liked having a seat between me and the other passenger"
Pros: "Ticketing agent attempting to help get me through to the flight on time despite TSA."
Cons: "I realize TSA is out of frontier' control but the plane was still present and the boarding tunnel still out & attached to the plane, Frontier assured me they wouldn't leave without me & yet when I arrived at the gate they refused to let me board. Then when I communicated that I absolutely had to get to Denver that evening because I play professional sports & had a game the following morning & cannot wait until their next available flight, they could not come up with another solution & refused to help me board another plane later"
Pros: "I liked nothing about this flight or airline."
Cons: "I hated the fees to choose a seat. What in God's name did I purchase?? Didn't I purchase a SEAT ON A PLANE??? Why the extra charge??? I was given a seat assignment right online when I checked the NO box for a paying seat. The seats were very uncomfortable. They turned off the lights and my spotlight did not work so I had to sit in the dark ( this was a red eye flight) the entire flight. The airplane was noisy. The flight was very turbulent. The nonexistent tray was very greasy and dirty. They charge for carry on bags. They charge for soda. I will not be using Frontier Airlines."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Seats don't rcline, extra fees for seat selectin, carryon,food or drink, dirty plane, bored and slobby cabin personnel, late."
Pros: "Seemed to have more legroom than delta"
Cons: "Nothing to drink and no magazine"
Pros: "Our flight wS delayed a little but they made sure that another connecting flight people got off first to make their flight. The crew was good and very nice."
Cons: "Only bad thing was it was delayed in taking off."
Cons: "I felt like I was so cramped I could barely move, and because the seats didn't recline at all, not even a little, I couldn't try to sleep. Im not a very tall or fat person, so im not being unreasonable. The crew were very nice and highly professional, though."
Pros: "I clicked check in, but it wanted my email again, even though I got my notice via email. The error message was not clear so I thought I did successfully check in. At 530 I did not get my boarding pass on time to make my flight and to pass through security."
Cons: "I didn't find out about their charge for seats until I checked in to get seat assignments, and also their carry-on charge, plus charging for the normal complimentary drinks. I will more than likely not use Frontier again. Very misleading"
Cons: "Due to the winter storm our flight was cancelled on Monday. There were no flights available on Tuesday, so the "best" they could do was put us on the 9pm flight on Wednesday. Not ideal."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The service. No notification of cancellation."
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "The fact that you have to pay for a carry-on needs to be made more clear. Other reviews state the same thing. Not happy about paying an additional $30 for a carry-on."
Cons: "We had to wait an hour and a half waiting for a gait ot open for us. It was not very nice with an infant who was ready to get off the plane."
