Flight delayed over 6 hours with multiple changes to flight status and times for eventual departure. At one point flight was cancelled so we booked a hotel only to have the flight rescheduled to after midnight so we had to scramble to cancel our hotel which might not be refunded. Worst experience with Alaska air to date.
I missed a connection due to a 4 hour maintenance delay. The worst part is that I can't even attempt to rebook the flight because there is no way to contact Iberia. The desks were closed because there were no more flights that day. They never answer the help line or facebook. I simply cannot, in any way, even get ahold of a person to help me rebook this flight that cost 1000 dollars and was ruined by the fault of the airline. So I am stranded in LA right now, frantically trying to get ahold of anyone from Iberia to help me get to Spain.
Cons: "The wifi was challenging to use. Otherwise, it was a fantastic flight."
Pros: "Smooth boarding, nice flight (even with the short delay after boarding), smooth landing. I’d fly Aur Alaska again!"
Pros: "The lady boarding people was really good. Got people to willingly check bags on a full flight and was positive and friendly."
Cons: "Plane was smelly. Attendants gathering trash after food and drink was poorly timed and awkward. They seemed either tired or not interested."
Pros: "Flight crew was nice."
Cons: "They were careless with our luggage. 2 wheels on my husband's suitcase and 1 on mine were broken off. We have flown before with other airlines, never has our property been damaged before."
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "I dislike cramped, crowded seating. Alaska could reconfigure and lose a row or two to allow for more leg room and customer comfort. I wouldn't fly Alaska if I had another choice."
Pros: "Everything ran quickly and efficiently. Flight Crew was friendly as well."
Cons: "The check in clerk in Reno wasn’t professional at all. He clearly showed impatience and lack of tact with the young family ahead of me as well as myself when it was my turn. Not impressed with his service at all."
Pros: "All flight crews we're great."
Pros: "The customer service rep was polite"
Cons: "They cancelled my flight the night before claiming ‘weather’. It was fine flying weather at my origin, destination, and layover airports and forecast to remain so. All other carriers were flying. The re-booked me not on a later flight, but on the next day with not one, but now two layovers."
Pros: "It was cancelled."
Cons: "If it had happened."
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "Plane was delayed for some reason, and I found out about the delay through Kayak, not at the Alaska counter or gate. Annoying."
Pros: "Wonderful quick flight!"
Pros: "crew was amazing, timely boarding and deboarding"
Cons: "comfort and food"
Pros: "Got drinks and snacks to passengers quickly."
Cons: "There was a long delay to defrost the wings, it took a long time for the team that does the defrosting to get to the plane."
Pros: "Great crew and flight service. Quick and friendly, the plane was clean."
Cons: "Small planes are rarely comfortable, it's less of a reflection on Alaska Air and more on smaller aircraft. No in flight entertainment, less expected on small craft."
Pros: "Flight was late leaving Reno. No room at the terminal in Seattle so they used busses to transport us to the terminal, but instead of us entering the airline terminal we went all the way to the main terminal area. 3 trains later I missed my connection"
Cons: "All of the above"
Pros: "It was a smooth flight - crew was really nice."
Cons: "Nothing - it was all good"
Cons: "Sketchiest landing ever. And the crew definitely didn’t communicate that our plane was having problems..."
Pros: "Movies on the plane."
Pros: "The bombardiers are old planes but fun. The tray table was broken on one side making it unusable. This is a prop style plane. Not very staff."
Cons: "Very noisy but tolerable."
Pros: "Great crew! On time professional Food average. Excellent pitch for the Alaska Mileage plan and credit card"
Cons: "for a 1 hour flight, you could add more frequent services from Reno to SJC. This will help remove traffic from the roads during long weekend and encourage more travel to Reno/Tahoe area from those of us who don’t prefer driving in traffic"
Cons: "Found the attendants not very friendly and snappy."
Pros: "The flight attendant made sure to touch base with me about my connecting flight and reassured me that we would arrive in time for me to make my connection."
Cons: "The flight was late arriving which was worrying as I had a connecting flight to catch and I was worried we would not make it in time."
Pros: "Everything okay..... the seating is just too damn tight."
Pros: "That I get a free carry on"
Cons: "That I didn't know about the flight being delayed till I got there and didn't know exactly when we would board."
Pros: "Fast and quick. Service was great"
Pros: "We left early and got to San Jose early."
Pros: "My carry on was simply put underneath with the checked baggage. Then it was easily ready for me to grab for the next flight."
Pros: "The complimentary wine was thoughtful."
Cons: "Turbulence coming out of Reno almost made air sick for a bit."
Cons: "The flight got delayed by 50 minutes."
Pros: "The flight attendants were extremely nice and informed us about the cool deals they have for ski season in Oregon and Washington. I will definitely be flying Alaska a lot more!"
Pros: "Very Nice Crew. Flight was good and smooth."
Cons: "Wish I had a little more seat space...."
Pros: "Really good flight with great crew"
Cons: "I wish there were vegan options"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and professional. These small planes are never exceedingly comfortable, but we had a very pleasant flying experience despite that unalterable fact!"
Cons: "Noisy slow aircraft. Very expensive for a turbine a/c."
Cons: "I requested a wheelchair ahead of time when i booked my flight and asked at omaha airport to make sure i would have one in seattle. No one was there with a wheelchair. I was on a time crunch and couldnt wait until they located one. This caused me discomfort and aggravation."
Pros: "Not being woke up"
Cons: "Crying baby behind me most the flight"
Pros: "The weather in Reno. I didn't however make it to Seattle."
Cons: "I did not like the fact that I arrived at the airport at 11:15 AM for a noon flight and by the time I got to the front of the line was told that 11:20 AM was the cut off time for that flight. I do not like the fact that the ticket agent Was quite rude and uncaring and unhelpful. The Epitome of poor customer service for a terrible policy. she almost seemed to gloat over the fact that she could not or would not help me join my family for a dinner in Seattle."
Pros: "Fast, friendly, convenient"
Pros: "Friendly Crew! Comfortable Seating! Genuine!"
Pros: "Cabin was nice and warm during flight. Crew were kind and easy to talk to. Planes ran on time too. Well done."
Cons: "The fact that it's owned and operated by Horizon,which meant smaller planes were cut (via a corporate choice), off from having wi-fi. Seriously? Why only give a few planes wifi access and then proceed to market your flights including wifi?? It's rather deceptive. :( This is a let down and ethically kind of stinky!"
Pros: "The staff and everyone was nice and helpful."
Cons: "The flight is noisy cause the plane is smaller."
Cons: "My fought was canceled with no costumer service answeringvtge phone and I had to re book my next ticket"
Cons: "Really? Flight from San Jose to Reno delayed 1 1/2 hours. Return flight delayed 1 hour, then canceled altogether. Both flights delayed or canceled due to mechanical problems. Yes, you did provide a $250 credit, but I lost a day's pay from work. Luckily, my family has a place in Truckee . Felt sorry for so many of the passengers whose travel plans were greatly changed by Alaska's mechanical problems."
Pros: "The professionalism of the crew."
Cons: "I did not receive notice or a page of my flight leaving Boise. I was not in the airport long after arriving from Reno and I missed my original flight and I was right in front of the gate."
Cons: "Not enough room in the cabin,"
Cons: "You failed to inform me that Alaska no longer offered the original flight from Eugene to Portland, so I had to buy another flight the next day and ended up being late for a family gathering for thanksgiving. The Eugene airport was extremely helpful but your service has been horrendous. I will no longer book through a 3rd party. I know this is the wrong flight I'm commenting on but your poor service equates to my poor feedback."
Cons: "Stop pandering fear with masks."
Cons: "Everything was great"
Pros: "Seat was not comfortable for a 3hr flight. Was very disappointed"
Cons: "Seat, tv, choices, flight attendants speech articulation."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and efficient. The flight got in slightly early. Baggage was swiftly delivered after our arrival."
Cons: "Very little legroom. I would have appreciated a small lunch item, beyond a tiny bag of almonds or two small cookies. But this is where we are these days with air travel."
Cons: "Turn on the lights before landing graduallyb- noone likes bright fast - too nasty;"
Cons: "The man sitting next to me was coughing and not covering his mouth. I am especially concerned given the recent Coronavirus outbreak."
Pros: "Friendly flight attendants. I appreciate the complimentary bag check for my carry-on bag to the destination."
Pros: "The agent at the bag drop was very helpful. We had two reservations and she took the extra step to call someone and helped check our luggage all the way to destination. Thanks for the wonderful service. Flight attendants were all smiling and very friendly. A very special treat that we got two snacks each which were very much appreciated as it was an early morning flight and we didn't get a chance to get breakfasts."
Pros: "The gate agents and flight crew were very accommodating."
Cons: "I was extremely annoyed that TSA Pre-Check was unavailable at Terminal 2 at 8:15am. This is unacceptable and not the TSA's fault. I fault the airline for this oversight. Delta needs to communicate better to the passengers if there is a possibility of this service being unavailable at an airport."
Pros: "The crew was great. Flight was on time. Although crowded, boarded went smoothly."
Cons: "Checking bags in Reno was a bit chaotic. Only one representative was there to assist when we arrived an hour before the flight. When others arrived to assist, people went directly to counter and were helped before those of us who had been waiting in line. My seat back screen did not work ."
Cons: "Even the baggage was quick (highly unusual for Columbus, Ohio)! Everything went smoothly."
Cons: "Person next to me overflowed into my seat…"
Pros: "comfortable flight"
Pros: "Very nice lady as part of the crew, always a cheering moment for passengers."
Cons: "The plane was not clean. Peanuts on my feet area, plastic bag in backseat pcket."

Pros: "Departed on time. Very courteous crew."
Cons: "The floor of the aircraft was cold!"
Pros: "Immagration was fast and organized didn't take long to move through customs. Quick and smooth"
Cons: "It was a late flight and didn't see the flight crew much at all"
Pros: "Excellent crew, snacks and coffee, comfortable economy seats. Plane landed 15 min early. Bags beat me to the carousel."
Pros: "Generally, Delta is cleaner, their terminals are much nicer, and the experience is better than one with American and United. I wish they had more direct flights to my normal destinations--I'd fly with them more!"
Cons: "Someone unloaded a lot of crumbs on my tray table and they all got smooshed on the back of the seat between the tray table and chair. It was pretty nasty. (The tray table was clean, the back of the seat wasn't. Please be nasty.)"
Pros: "Gate Agent was extremely helpful and compassionate regarding making sure our family (traveling with adolescent children)was accommodated ."
Pros: "On Time, comfortable seats, good coffee and mixed nuts, smooth flight and landing."
Pros: "Not crowded?"
Cons: "It's a 6A flight from RNO to SLC meaning you are up really early to get to the airport, checkin and wait. There's no Delta lounge, so you're stuck trying to find something to eat and somewhere to sit well before our flight. The exit row seating does help, but the seats didn't recline making it a bit more uncomfortable."
Pros: "Flight attendants very friendly."
Cons: "Being next to lavatory."
Pros: "Very comfortable and didn't feel cramped. Quick flight."
Cons: "No choice in snack and I couldn't eat what I was given. Staff appeared checked out and not bothered. No entertainment but it was a quick flight."
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. Once we were in flight I was extremely please with the ride. Thanks to the captain and crew my granddaughter and I made it home safely."
Cons: "The plane was delayed several hours."
Pros: "Female flight attendant was incredibly personable and had a bubbly personality. Definitely made you want to smile"
Cons: "Delayed for no reason"
Cons: "Not enough room. Could have better technology and better food choices."
Pros: "Always nice to be on an American plane out of an American airport.....SO much more professional. :))"
Pros: "The initial boarding process was quick, smooth flight"
Cons: "I've never had a flight wait over 30 minutes past departure got other people to make a connection and get on to this flight. Seems beyond normal and wrong to those that were there in time and on the flight to support an on time departure"
Cons: "For the second consecutive Delta flight, one at LGA, one at JFK, (it’s never happened on any other airline) TSA pre-check was closed and over a dozen agents trying to upsell the CLEAR program were working hard to get people to spend $175 not to wait in the resulting one hour long line."
Pros: "Had tv & movies available but kept losing signal"
Cons: "Terrible turbulence. Very rough landing. No beverage service. Late taking off."
Pros: "I liked the fact that I was able to watch a movie on my phone."
Cons: "The flight was very rough at times."
Pros: "The crew and service were outstanding, seat was comfortable."
Pros: "I was going for weekend trip and because of delays I would've been there less than 20 hours. But Delta was terrific in giving me a refund and essy to work with via Twitter. 2 hour phone delay but they called me back to complete refund."
Cons: "Chaos at gates. Changed gate 3 times. No real updates."
Pros: "Even with the weather being bad, the flight crew handled the situation really well. No one on the plane freaked out which was awesome, so I'm happy with the way they handled it."
Cons: "The weather was pretty nasty so we had to be re-routed to Cleveland to get more gas before landing in Columbus. It definitely wasn't the airline's fault, but it still was annoying. Thankfully I didn't miss anything!"
Cons: "Super delayed. Sat on runway for 2.5 hours"
Cons: "Delayed flight, mechanical"
Pros: "Excellent. Smooth staff. Lots of humor and smiles"
Cons: "No entertainment except paid WiFi."
Pros: "Getting to ATL"
Cons: "We boarded, they closed the door, told us to turn our phones off, acted like we were leaving, then informed us we had an hour delay. The flight attendants remarked that they couldn't hold us hostage and could get off if we want. The whole thing wasn't done properly."
Pros: "I was very grateful to have made this flight on standby."
Cons: "Someone has to sit in the seat next to the restroom. Had I a choice in the matter, I would have preferred to sit elsewhere. But as I said, I was grateful to have made the flight, and arrive at my destination a mere 3 hours late."
Pros: "Got on earlier flight as standby."
Pros: "This doesn't really have to do with Delta Airlines however it does affect my experience. I had a very rude TSA agent speak to me na very degrading tone prior to boarding the plane. This experience affected my travel experience with Delta. I realize this person is not a Delta employee however the rudeness that I experienced affected my travel experience."
Cons: "The crew was rude, we left over an hour late due to human error, there was no food for sale and the internet was down"
Pros: "Flight was mostly empty and it’s a short trip."
Cons: "I always have preferred American Airlines but they seem to have constant problems with the aircraft these days. This causes delays and missed connections. This in turn causes no breakfast or lunch or dinner opportunities. I travel with snacks in my bag at all times now just in case so I won’t get sick for lack of nourishment or water! This last flight I missed my connection altogether and had to take a shuttle home, then catch a ride back to the airport to pick up my luggage and then get my car to drive home. It was 4 hours past my expected time home."
Pros: "Seats very comfortable"
Cons: "No money for baggage registred"
Pros: "Everything was good!"
Pros: "The 2 flight attendants who continued to work this flight were amazing. The gate agent in Phoenix was also great."
Cons: "7 hour delay initially because of a mechanical problem, but massively exacerbated by an inability to find crew. Disappointing...."
Cons: "My seat was disgusting when I went to sit in it. Then I discovered the seat was broken. 24A"
Pros: "Gate check of carry-on luggage was nice. The connecting flight from DFW to FLL was on time and the boarding process was very smoothly executed by the gate agent. Well done!!"
Cons: "The flight out of RNO early in the morning was chaotic. One of the kiosks was down and the line to self-check was long and moved very slowly because there was only one agent behind the self-check baggage drop. She did well keeping up but there was a long line of unhappy customers due to the long wait. No snack was offered but I did get a glass of water. Not enough overhead storage for the carry-on bags because passengers get the luggage check tag but brought the carry-on onboard anyway."
Pros: "I feel like there is more leg room in the seats then in other discount airlines! I like the snack and drink, this breaks up the flight a bit. This is nice for me because I don’t like to fly."
Cons: "The staff seemed miserable. No one was nice or even smiled. Just felt like they couldn’t wait for this leg of their day/trip to be over."
Pros: "flight took off exactly on time & arrived on time"
Pros: "Very nice new plane."
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Getting through security at O'Hare was horrible. My plane seat was too upright and felt like it was not bolted to the floor properly."
Pros: "Quick flight, great crew, orderly boarding. Updates to gate were clearly communicated"
Cons: "Very annoyed at "Basic Economy" being a thing. Annoying way to get more $ for the same seat. Avoiding any airline with this status."
Cons: "The crew was very disappointing!!!!!!"
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Poor ratings for food Is result of not eating any food. No entertainment."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Crew was very helpful"
Cons: "the staff were not knowledgeable on visa requirements at checkin in Reno. As a result my checkin took long at the counter. Small CRJ700 plane was cramped though fast."
Cons: "No overhead space"
Cons: "I think things would run so much smoother if the plane was loaded from the back to the front. That way you don't have to wait as long for people to put things in the overhead and then sit down."
Pros: "Flight box waste of money for sure. The middle seat was vacant and it was fantastic. We travelbwith a guide dog."
Cons: "The boxed food"
Cons: "Waited an extra 30 minutes for luggage to be loaded. Every American ( British airways partner) flight we took was delayed."
Cons: "I guess I was lucky to get a seat at all, since this last leg of my itinerary was deleted from my ticket when I got to the airport. So my bag couldn't be checked through, and they wanted to charge me for it even though it was a connection to the international flight I had just taken. A truly dreadful experience."
Pros: "DCA based AA gate agents were awesome. We were booked on a flight that was delayed, turned out there was a flight about to depart (it had been delayed 2.5hrs due to weather), but was departing prior to our reg scheduled flight so they put us on standby. No doubt the crew was also columbus based and eager to get home...as they did. Couldn’t be more pleased to get home"
Cons: "Seats are cramped"
Pros: "Automatic ticket rebooking"
Cons: "It being cancelled."
Pros: "40 minute flight, on time, no complaints."
Pros: "see above"
Cons: "see above"
Cons: "Delays without updates, rude flight staff, lost baggage"
Cons: "Have to pay for wifi use. Entertainment used to be included in flights and was apart of your airfare."
Pros: "The plane was very comfortable. The steward as very helpful - just a cup of coffee when I entered the plane - but after nearly missing connections, it was very welcome."
Cons: "The flight was perfect."
Cons: "delayed and missed connecting flight"
Pros: "Bridget was managing the cancellation lines with finesse, compassion, and urgency. She was a star! The rebooked flight was fast, comfortable, and landed early."
Cons: "Previous flight was canceled and forced us to stay in DC an extra day. Watched flights continue to arrive and depart from our hotel room. Rebooked using the mobile app but could not check in on mobile or at the kiosk. Waited in line for almost 2 hours for AA to simply check us in and print passes. The flight did not get catering refreshed after landing in DC so no refreshments or snacks were offered during the flight home."
Cons: "I'm pregnant, and didn't have time before my connecting flight to get food at the airport. I was sitting near the back of the plane, and was ready to purchase food. By the time the cart reached my row, all the food options were literally sold out. I ate the free cookie and had some apple juice, but wanted something with some protein. I guess I'll remember to pack more snacks next time."
Pros: "Awesome crew. On time."
Pros: "worst experience. Airplane people not so good"
Cons: "The seats were so old, I didn't have a screen to watch movies on and it was really really cold"
Pros: "the plane, a 380, had comfortable seats, fewer occupants, more and easier access to bathrooms, did not like the larger plane I flew on going to Australia, it held 700 persons could physically reach the lights and when on, they didn't disturb anyone vegetarian food was delicious and nutritionally sound and varied love the soft blankets"
Cons: "not a very good choice of current movies"
Cons: "Missed my connecting flight to to 3 delays."
Cons: "Unprofessional, rude, unorganized, & just ridiculous!!!!"
Pros: "Flight was one time."
Cons: "It was a standard boarding. The standard ride. I have nothing to complain about"
Cons: "I still have not received my luggage"
Pros: "Politeness of the crew"
Cons: "Not very spacious and entertainment only offered at My own expense"
Pros: "The flight attendants were not only exceedingly courteous, but they also knew how to put their guests in a good mood. They had fun with their job, which put me in a much better mood than I would have otherwise been in. Also, flight was efficient."
Cons: "Not much to dislike, good all around. We left the runway a bit late, but I'm guessing that wasn't anything the crew could control."
Cons: "Broken down seat cushion ."
Pros: "Quick flight (made up for lost time), good pilot, smooth landing."
Cons: "- Delayed by 30 minutes or so at take off - Too cold in the cabin, no more blankets to provide - Overhead compartments were full so people with a luggage where asked to get back to the front of the plane to check in their luggage. Very inefficient process as there were still people trying to board at the same time - No in-flight entertainment"
Pros: "Boarded quickly and got into air fast."
Cons: "Way behind schedule and virtually no snacks or drinks."
Pros: "Plane on time"
Cons: "Newark airport security was awful. Only one X-ray security area. Small tight area. No air. Security/TSA kept blaming the customer’s for the slowness. When is lack of X-ray and machines."
Cons: "The rubber chicken in first class was awful. Drinks and wine were good. Service was excellent."
Pros: "They lost my luggage."
Pros: "Missed this flight"
Cons: "Missed this flight"
Cons: "Seats were too small; my knees were always against the seat in front of me. Take-off from Dulles was extremely rough. The landing wasn't much better."
Pros: "Amazing amount of legroom! Very comfortable seating, even in economy."
Cons: "I would like to see passengers behave better. One lady pushed in at boarding and went ahead despite the checker telling her she was out of order, Another passenger used both underseat storage in front of him and under him so the person in back of him had no place to put things. Staff should try hard"
Cons: "When transferring our luggage from the flight from Panama, we had to walk all the way to the entrance of the airport as if we had just arrived there instead of being able to transfer the luggage directly. This was not communicated, and we ended up walking around a lot and having to ask at the info desk. When we finally got to the counter, the woman there gave confusing instructions and was incredibly rude to us. As for entertainment on the flight, we couldn't do anything without the app, which you have to get before you're on the plane. Boo."
Pros: "Everything was as planned"
Cons: "Sat on the runway way too long. Hot. Cramped plane"
Cons: "This airline is never on time. Their employees are rude and unhelpful. Planes were dirty! I won’t fly them again"
Pros: "We had a 1pm connecting flight to SF enroute to Los Angeles and it was suddenly cancelled without any notification. Luckily, Kayak had notified me about the cancellation and we immediately called United to take the next flight out. The earliest was at 5:50pm and we didn’t get back to LA till 7:50pm. The 5:50pm flight was late and therefore push everything out..."
Cons: "No communication from United... the crew and staff was fine, it was just the lack of communication that was disappointing! Not to mention, I had my dog boarded at Doggy Daycare and I’d missed picking her up due to the late return back to LA."
Cons: "Seating is very tight and amenities are nada."
Pros: "For the first time I did not fly on a puddle jumper. Not only was it a real jet, it had good seat comfort and leg room even in economy class. The crew was friendly and attentive. They came by with offerings of water at least 4 times for a 2+ hour flight. Contrast that with my last two 5 hour flights on Virgin and American where they came by with water — ONCE. WiFi wasn’t working for either flight and of course the lack of decent food is discouraging. The coffee has improved which is a plus. Overall, good job, United! Nice not to be jammed in like sardines for once."
Cons: "WiFi wasn’t working and food selection is non existent. Other than that, a very pleasant flight overall."
Pros: "Nice flight attendant"
Pros: "Our flight was delayed leaving RNO, and the check-in agent moved my seat up to the front even though I had the new "Basic Economy" so I'd have a better chance running to catch my connection upon arrival. She also put my backpack in one of those plastic bags. DCA did not do the same for me."
Cons: "Small CRJ, so seats were smaller as expected. Short flight though."
Cons: "Flight turned out to be 3 hours total instead of 1 1/4 hrs because of delays at both ends"
Cons: "Sat on the tarmac in Reno for half an hour because of flight control delay from SFO."
Cons: "Every flight delayed 2 hours plus"
Pros: "Flight out of Reno was delayed due to congestion / back up at LAX. Ground staff patiently helped all passengers reschedule connecting flights / explain options."
Pros: "It was quick but full"
Pros: "Crew staff was excellent"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for 4 hours due to a delayed aircraft; followed by a broken seat. Seat seemed to have tape wrapped around the seat back tray."
Pros: "Arrived early"
Cons: "Was way too hot on the plane."
Cons: "No food. Horrible service"
Pros: "The courteous ticket agent at the counter in Reno-that's all."
Cons: "Getting stuck, having to change plans. SUCKS!"
Pros: "Liked the staff, always friendly even with several delays. The assist staff were excellent"
Cons: "Did not like the delays and gate changes - but that wasn't the airlines' fault"
Pros: "I was on time. I liked the view."
Cons: "I don't like when they leave me at the gate in my wheelchair. I don't like it even more when they take the wheelchair. I feel really uneasy when I am left at the gate. So I have the wheelchair pusher let someone know from the gate that I am there and will need assistance. Once again being sexually assaulted going through the metal detectors. Outside of being foreign most of the United employees seem like complete morons. Also there was that same bag in front of me. So my legroom was restricted."
Pros: "Dirty, tired airplane. This (and every other flight going out around our gate) was "oversold"- egging travelers to give up their seats"
Pros: "the plane was on time, smooth take off and landing, crew was efficient and friendly. it was great !"
Pros: "It got me to boston, the pilot etc did a great job"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats, even in Economy plus"
Cons: "Group 5 was a very delayed boarding beyond what it should have been with no explanation. Felt like second class citizen"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable and had plenty of leg room"
Pros: "Fast flight"
Cons: "feeling cramped"
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Plane was delayed 1 hrs because short of crew member"
Cons: "Our flights were all cancelled or delayed and they gave us nothing to apologize. We lost 2 whole days of vacation and the cost of our rooms. All of the customer service people were rude. One lady in particular was so rude I had to walk away from the desk. The movie on the plane skipped and was unwatchable. I hate this airline and would pay more to fly another one."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for almost 5 hours and then cancelled. This delayed my trip with family to Missouri and inconvenienced many people. On top of that, due to cancellation had to stay in hotel without my luggage and my pills that I have to take daily. Worst experience ever!! I need compensation for all this mess!!!!"
Pros: "It was a quiet and smooth ride."
Pros: "Did everything you scheduled and nice crew."
Cons: "On the 3 hour and 18 minute trip to NY in the coach section the seats have hard plastic armrests and a paded armrest would make your airline the cats meow. Give the coach section a little comfort please."
Cons: "The flight was over one hour late in leaving and while I appreciate that is beyond the control of the flight crew, one steward was quite rude as we were quickly trying to board as she prioritized serving the first class cabin rather than get us all on the plane. At the very least she could have used commonly acceptable language such as "please, thank you and excuse me" but rather chose to use "wait". As some of us where desperate to make a tight connection in SF, focusing on getting people on board and the plane off the ground should have been the crew focus."
Pros: "Everything worked. Smooth process. But online check in didn't work well for us."
Cons: "Online check-in."
Cons: "The crew workers attitude"
Cons: "Late take off and had to wait for ground crew when landed"
Pros: "Got delayed on my first flight, missed my other connections, had an 8 hr layover and almost 24 hr trip, rearranged my entire travel plan. Not united 's fault but not the best flight I've had either."
Pros: "Plane was very comfortable. Attendants were friendly and it was very smooth and quick!"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Maybe pick a packet food that is more favoured by more people. The wasabi peas weren't a good choice for our family"
Cons: "My first flight was delayed, causing me to miss my connecting flight. I was put on a standby list for flights to my destination as well as to any cities around it with connecting flights. Every flight was over sold and they were unable to get me on any flights until Tuesday... My original flight was Sunday morning. I was among 26 others on this standby list. United customer service told me to wait at the airport until my flight because they wouldn't be able to help me with a hotel. Less than satisfied and annoyed that I have to miss two days of work on top of having to stay in San Francisco for two nights."
Cons: "Good trip overall."
Pros: "Because I was unwilling to pay for seat selection, I was prepared to be separated from my husband and stuck in a middle seat. To my pleasant surprise, the agents put us in the same row by ourselves."
Cons: "Better directional signage in both the SFO and Las Vegas airports (arrivals). Las Vegas is a huge airport, requiring a tram to get to the passenger pick-up, even with directions it was confusing and not obvious. In SFO, half the plane walked halfway down the concourse in the wrong direction because of lack of signage and it looks like the right way to go. Drop Kiwi as a third-party for domestic flights, their customer service is clueless, handling charges absurd and flight requirements unnecessary."
Pros: "No frills with this airline. Very lean operation. The crew in the City and onboard were bright and positive and handled disgrunted crowds in an effective but respectful way. Pilot was excellent. Airline provided food vouchers for delayed flights."
Cons: "Delayed flight 4 times. Seats are waay uncomfortable."
Cons: "Plane didn't take turbulence well. Staff were mediocre. Price with luggage added would have been same to fly a better airline. Had to wait long time for checked bag to come down."
Cons: "Seats are pathetic, screaming baby behind me for 3 hrs....not your fault. Charge for snacks not what was advertised on pamphlet...way overcharged.."
Pros: "Flight was good. Left on time. Person boarding customers could of spoken clearer. Very muffled."
Cons: "An hour wait to get my luggage in Columbus. Landed around 12:25 am. Didn't get our luggage until approx. 1:20 am. As a single lady having to drive home 2 hours this hour delay was ridiculous. Plus it cost more for my luggage coming from Las Vegas than going out. Your whole luggage procedure is terrible."
Pros: "That I actually landed"
Cons: "First of all. Our flight was delayed 3 hours with no explanation at first (after we boarded they finally told us).There was technical difficulties with the plane. They had to keep re-starting the planes system. It was June in Vegas. This shut off caused the A/C to go off. It got extremely hot. The flight attendants very rudly handed out warm water (no ice) to everyone. Only filled the cups a quarter of the way and would not hand out more. 3 hours after we were supposed to take off, we finally got going. After we were up in the air the flight attendants were extremely rude. Many of the passengers kept asking for snacks and drinks. We were all extremely hungry and thirsty from sitting in an extremely hot plane for hours. We FINALLY got service in time for our plane to start landing. We were then forced to promptly throw our drinks and food away due to landing. Didn't even get a few sips and a couple bites of my chips before I then had to throw it away. I will never fly frontier again. I can say that most of the people on my flight will not be flying frontier either. I never write bad reviews. I am an extremely easy going person. I understand plane difficutlies but the staff of the plane were extremely rude and did not handle the situation well."
Pros: "new planes"
Cons: "seats do not recline."
Pros: "This was easy, fast and a breeze. The usual mouth-breathers slow the baggage drop off as they are always somehow surprised you pay for a carry on. Wah waaahh."
Cons: "People complaining about baggage prices. It is very clear in the booking process you pay more at the gate/airport than before you arrive."
Pros: "Plane was clean. Departed on time. Arrived early."
Cons: "I tried numerous times hours before my flight to check-in using the fly frontier website. It never worked. I arrived at the airport an hour and a half early. With bus delays, I walked up to the ticket counter at 9:24pm to retrieve my ticket. Flight leaves at 10:00pm. The attendant tells me I missed my flight by 9min because you have to check in at least 45min early and that there was no way I could board. I asked if the plane had already left, he said that it had not. No good answer as to why I couldn't be accommodated. I explained my qualms about the online check-in but it was pointless. I had to fly with another airline which costs me $367.00 to book. Terrible customer service and no leeway or understanding whatsoever."
Pros: "The cost was good... until the $60 carry-on charges."
Cons: "Maintenance issues. Delays. Horribly uncomfortable seats (I've never seen an airline with less padding in their seat). Rude stewardess. Just avoid at all costs."
Pros: "decent price"
Cons: "cramped, seats were worse than bus seats, no ability to recline, flight was hot"
Pros: "Tried to get the lowest price."
Cons: "Alexa assured me it would not be a big deal to not be on the exit. But then they told me that the flight was oversold and that I may not be able to board that flight after I let them know that I run a business and I needed to be on this flight home and that I did not mind being the exit person if it meant that I had to get on this flight. I then proceeded to call my mother but when I raise my phone to the ear Alexa then proceeded to make a scene in front of all the other passengers saying that she did not wish to have her picture taken and then began to laugh with another co-worker making me feel very uncomfortable I will never fly with your airline again."
Pros: "I got a round trip flight to Vegas for 100 bucks (plus 50 for checked bags)"
Cons: "Seats were very small, even a carry on bag cost you. Plane boarded late."
Pros: "Cheap but not as cheap as you think."
Cons: "Seats not comfortable."
Pros: "very affordable, we got there safely"
Cons: "they were late, serve drinks only one time, no room for legs"
Cons: "Had to cancel whole trip instead of just the one flight to Las Vegas that was cancelled VERY VERY last minute because flight crew never showed... how the hell does an airline allow that to happen?!? It put us in a situation where we had to spend 3000 dollars on flight tickets with another airline because they didn't have any outgoing flights for another 3 days... which is absolutely insane, ESPECIALLY during the holidays. I will never book with them again and I don't understand how they are still in business. Completely unacceptable."
Pros: "Cost & crew on plane were good."
Cons: "2hr delay Boarding pass and screen display for which gate didn't match. Gate officially changed twice Announcement's for which gate were wrong. (in experienced person) My HUGE gripe is the temperature on the plane. It was so hot I was sweating on both trips. Also, the seats were so close and had armrests that were fixed in the down position. Ingress / egress was hard for me and for others too. On the return flight our plane was making weird noises on decent. It made several people nervous. (I've been flying for 25 yrs)"
Cons: "-Charge for everything, only thing they gave out was a 2/3 cup full of water with three ice cubes -Incredibly cheaply remodeled interior. The seats had the support of folding chairs and the tray table was the size of my hand. -Poor communication. We had multiple delays and cancelled flights which were announced well after our flight was due to take off. They just never boarded us. When people noticed that we were not boarding when we should, they got on line to ask the service rep, who wasn't there. She came back 40 minutes after our flight was due to take off to announce a delay. Really awful company. Will not willingly use again."
Cons: "I'm 5'2" and I felt cramped! We thought we were saving money but by the time they were done charging us for every little thing, we could have flown an airline with seats that actually recline."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Online check in and boarding was okay. Nonstop Denver to Columbus."
Cons: "I didn't like being stabbed with outrageous fees for baggage (checked and carry on). I especially didn't like seat assignment fees and no ability to keep your party seated together unless you pay their ridiculous surcharges. By the time you get done with every extra charge they rope you into you can fly any otheir airlicanard possibly for less money. In addition, the seating is terrible. Rows are crammed in tight with the new non reclining rubber pad seats that are sure to send you to the chiropractor. They have the unmitigated gall to cram their credit card sales pitch over the PA followed up with multiple trips up amddown the aisle. Hey Frontier, if I wanted a credit card sales pitch I would stay home and answer the damn robocalls. Nice way to treat your customers, especially after you stab them $3 for a drink."
Cons: "I did not like them telling us at Columbus gate that they cancelled the flight without warning us. Now waiting for the reimbursement. We are here vising from China and are very disappointed about not going on this trip to vegas.I will not fly this unpredictable airline."
Pros: "They delayed then cancelled flight. Refunded 1/4 of paid round trip price. Cost 3 people extra 3k for hotels and flights to get home! "Our policy is what it is" I was told. Never Again."
Cons: "Cancelled flight"
Pros: "Cancelled. can’t see my family now."
Pros: "The crew provided great service. Very friendly."
Cons: "Not very comfortable. Doesn't not have small things like a port to charge phones. Things that are needed for long flights and are provided by other airlines. Seems outdated."
Pros: "One lady had a medical problem after we had boarded and had to find her luggage to be taken off, the whole ordeal only lasted about 15 minutes"
Cons: "I was late due to a family situation, I was still in time for my flight, which was at 10:30pm. I was at the airport at 9:40pm. I was denied a boarding pass and airline staff was not helpful at all. They took a re-booking fee of $100 to board me the next day - 24 hours later. I felt stranded and will never recommend this airlines to anyone. Infact I say never travel frontier airlines again."
Pros: "The staff are friendly and professional, for the most part. Check-in was easy and I wasn't hassled about my 'personal item' being too big, which I was sure it was."
Cons: "Firstly, I'm pretty sure that the planes Frontier uses are re-purposed prison planes. The seats don't recline and are uncomfortable as all get-out. They cram you into some kind of military stress-position that ensures you won't sleep, won't be comfortable, and will be reduced into an unsmiling pile of compliance. Secondly, Frontier charges for *everything* - carry-on? That'll be $40-$60. You want a soda? That'll be $2.00. Snack? Yep... pay up, sucka. Water's free, thankfully. That said, the price was right and the flight was mercifully short; so I'd probably do it again. Because I'm a sadist, apparently."
Cons: "You have to pay for everything. It was $45 to check a bag, and $40 to store a bag in the overhead compartment. My husband and I would have had to pay an additional $30 to sit next to each other. On the flight out, the stewardess asked us if we wanted to buy any food or drinks, but never offered even free water. The seats are horribly uncomfortable. I was in the middle seat on a red eye, and I was so cramped and sore, I couldn't fall asleep for more than a minute. I landed feeling exhausted, sore, and miserable. This was my first and last time flying on Frontier."
Pros: "value and staff helpfulness. Also, I think it is good to see an airline discourage carry on baggage via higher pricing. Too many passengers bring large bags onto flights that seem dangerous and much too awkward getting on and off plane."
Cons: "The seats I purchased had additional leg room. I appreciated that, but the seats were cramped shoulder to shoulder and I was made very uncomfortable between two men with broad shoulders. One other thing: on this 4 hour overnight flight, I found the seats to be very uncomfortable with thin padding and no real head rest. My tailbone hurt."
Pros: "Good price cool staff"
Cons: "Wow it is so cramped. Need to get the AC working too hot"
Cons: "Seats too close together, stuffy, cramped, no space."
Pros: "The gate agent was very helpful."
Cons: "The crew was so snobby. The head attendant was very condescending to everyone she talked to. She was most concerned that every one didn't get in her way. No one was allows even an arm in the isle. Her favorite quote was "this is your space (placing her hand right on either side of the passengers head), this is my space (signaling to the isle)"."
Cons: "I missed my flight Saturday the 24th. I wasn't given a credit at all I had to buy a whole new ticket. The flight was delayed as always with this airline, the planes are uncomfortable, and I'd rather pay more to fly with an airline that knows how to appreciates it's customers."
Cons: "We reserved a seat and PAID an upgraded price for the reserved seats and they put us on stand by! They were so rude about it as well. I will never fly with them again"
Cons: "Frontier changes our flight and then wouldn't refund money for a missed flight."
Cons: "Paying for a seat"
Pros: "The price of the flight was great, until I realized I was being charged for every little thing. What a rip off! I should have flown United."
Cons: "I had a severe allergic reaction due to the passengers in my row carrying four cats. I had to take Benadryl and broke out into hives. The flight attendants didn't even offer to move my seat. It was a truly terrible experience and I can't believe that there's not a better protocol in place with the airline to accommodate customers with severe allergies to animals, even when they are labeled as emotional support animals. This as a truly terrible experience. Thank goodness the flight was only 4 hours. I'll never fly Frontier again."
Pros: "The whole trip was very nice"
Pros: "The price. The flights to/from were smooth. Crew was experienced."
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable particularly for a flight over 2 hrs."
Pros: "They kept the lights down; it was a red-eye."
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable, you cannot lounge unless you pay an extra $50; the entire trip should have been only $50. Felt like I was a the Dollar General. Not as cheap as it should be due to uncomfortable seats and lounging."
Cons: "I would not refer anyone to travel with frontier my experience was really bad I was at gate around 50 min before they didn't allow me to check in there was problem with there site that is why we couldn't check in online but we checked our bags online I had insurance also they just gave me refund of 40$ as a ticket credit which I have to use for my name only that too for a period of 2 months."
Pros: "Boarding was quick, crew was nice, comfort was okay but for the price it was expected."
Cons: "When I booked the tickets I didn't know there was a charge associated with carry-on luggage. On my phone it was $40, at the check-in it was $45, and at the gate it was $60..."
Pros: "The crew was nice and the flight itself went well."
Cons: "Having to pay more for seats that allow you to actually have room to feel like you can breathe."
Pros: "Low Prices, Plane was clean,"
Cons: "very close to other passengers, babies crying the entire 4 hour flight on an overnight flight. Uncomfortable and disappointed seats didn't recline at all to ease the overnight flight."
Pros: "Well Seated on the very first row of the first Class; and everything else went very good."
Pros: "The staff was amazingly helpful, empathetic, and kind. I genuinely enjoyed the experience because the gate attendants, crew, and pilot were fantastic."
Cons: "I did not like that I did not read the fine print and ended up having to pay at the gate for a carry on. I'd never flown Frontier before . . . but I'll know for next time: one personal item only. :)"
Pros: "Disappointed that ticketing agent wouldn't let me check my bag since I was there before 45 minute deadline. Had to throw out my new shampoo and conditioner. Seats didn't recline for all nighter. Cheap, safe and on time."
