Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Affordable non-stop flight."
Cons: "Relatively long flight with no substantial snack."
Cons: "This was an old aircraft with very uncomfortable seats (even in first). Was not worth paying for the upgrade, especially for a red-eye."
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."
Cons: "45 minute delayed departure due to maintenance documentation issue"
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: "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: "Much shorter flight than was orginally scheduled, on time."

Pros: "It was a smooth flight - crew was really nice."

Cons: "Sketchiest landing ever. And the crew definitely didn’t communicate that our plane was having problems..."
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"

Pros: "Everyone who works for the airline seems to have a wonderful attitude. It truly is service with a smile. Great experience."
Cons: "Nothing to dislike."

Pros: "Flight departed a bit late and arrived early, good crew for departure and arrival, and in-flight service was very friendly."

Pros: "A first class upgrade is always welcome"
Cons: "The seat 110 volt outlet would no work with my 130 Watt laptop charger"

Cons: "Delay boarding"
Cons: "Noisy slow aircraft. Very expensive for a turbine a/c."
Pros: "Not being woke up"
Cons: "Crying baby behind me most the flight"
Pros: "Nothing...the seats were to small"
Cons: "I am a retired Veteran and they made me pay for luggage--versus Active Duty which got free luggage...ridiculous"
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: "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."
Pros: "the ground and flight crew made every effort to be sure that I made my connection (along with 5 others). They were very pleasant and accommodating"
Pros: "not availab;e"
Cons: "I purchased an Am Airlines ticket operated by Alaska Airlines. This created some issues in check-in, etc/ process. I was given an American conf # but was not able to check-in online on either American or Alaska airlines. Once I called to get the Alaskan conf # I was still unable to check-in with anyone other than an agent F2F as airport. Additionally, no Alaska flight number information was provide on tickets or confirmation so finding appropriate baggage claim, etc became a hunting exercise. Limited food options or in-flight enteratainment for a long flight (5+hours). Inflight entertainment options were limited. You can use your own device with limited free TV programming. Movie rentals and popular TV shows are $3-6 a piece. Device rental is $10."
Pros: "The entertainment options are good as well as free messaging on wifi"
Cons: "The boarding was late, the take off was late (weather), then arriving in rdu was delayed because the bridge was broken. All around, I’ve had better experiences but I’ve had much worse on SW."
Cons: "Very good"
Cons: "The man sitting next to me was coughing and not covering his mouth. I am especially concerned given the recent Coronavirus outbreak."
Pros: "Fast/ efficient"
Cons: "The little plane is always brutal. I'm not a small guy and sat next to an offensive lineman. It was tight for sure!"
Pros: "Crew was attentive and accommodating."
Cons: "Gates switched 3 times and all bags had to be checked because of a small aging plane."
Pros: "The timeliness of the flight and the service during the flight."
Cons: "The tagging of the bags. The bigger bags should be the only ones tagged. Smaller bags that fit in the bin should be allowed in the cabin."
Pros: "Crew professionalism."
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."
Cons: "Better flight scheduling."
Cons: "The flight scheduled was 1 hour 30 minutes late"
Pros: "Actually leaving the airport after 2 hours late was the best part."
Cons: "Not be hours late. And then when you finally land have to wait longer for an open gate cause they're doing work on the other ones. A lot of poor planning on this trip. Very disappointed in this experience cause I love to fly."
Cons: "Flight was delayed out of the gate from ATL. No one was available for at least 15 minutes to move the jetway to let us off the plane when we arrived in RDU."
Pros: "Crew was great. Paris to RDU flight is very convenient. Fair summer pricing overall for our special itinerary. Beverages, snacks on international flight were great."
Cons: "Specialty food requested - reduced sugar because there is just too much sugar in airline food generally. Pretty awful. Some kind of (I think) pickled cabbage and carrots slaw was inedible. Plain yogurt was awful, needed something! Nuts, just a little bit of dried fruit would help."
Pros: "They didn’t want to help"
Cons: "They were delayed. They wouldn't let us keep our checked sized bags which slowed us down even more. Our next flight left without us while we were waiting for a gate to open so we could get off the plane. There were no more flights so we had to fly to an alternate city and rent a car to get home."
Pros: "The crew was some of the best I’ve ever had."
Cons: "The crew"
Pros: "Getting off the flight was the best!"
Cons: "The persons who barfed and delayed take off was a not great. Cramped"
Pros: "My wife’s and my headphone connections would not work."
Pros: "Got there before ETA"
Cons: "Concourse was VERY FAR away and trains were not running☹️"
Cons: "I think I caught a stomach bug on one of the 3 legs of this route. More likely on last 2, i.e. Mumbai to RDU, as I fell sick almost 10-12 hrs after my last flight meal."
Pros: "great service and a quick flight"
Pros: "Good Food Nice Flight Attendants"
Pros: "Staff were great.. landed smoothly"
Pros: "Wheeler chair service is available"
Cons: "Gate changed in the last minute and non-English speaking wheeler chair customer (my 89 years old mother) was left at the old gate by their wheeler chair services and no agent at the gate knew about her. Both round trip flights! This is totally NOT acceptable. She could have been lost and with no ability to help herself and miss the flights. It was lucky that she found Chinese speaking customers to help her."
Pros: "Whereas our flight out from Raleigh to JFK where everything that could possibly go wrong did(late crew, boarding computer problem, mechanical issues with the plane, gate problems, missed connection) this last leg of our trip back was flawless. Everything was on time, and the crew was friendly and attentive. We had exit row seats so the leg room for this 90 minute flight was great compared to our first part (London-Atlanta)"
Pros: "Flight attendant had nice attitude."
Cons: "I asked for an aisle seat to provide relief to my right leg. I was given an aisle on my left. This was compounded by sitting next to a man so large that part of my space was taken, and this was Delta Comfort. Had I been given the requested seat, I would not have the sore neck and back I now have from leaning for 2 hours."
Pros: "Pilot almost barrel-rolled us climbing out of JFK, so if started well enough.... Ground assistance (wheel chair) left me with a badly bruised left big toe and I didn't think we'd ever get through the TSA. The pat-down I received was more like a sexual assault and I didn't even get a happy ending. We made it to RDU, so the exercise was a success, but it was a huge hassle."
Cons: "After reading the good things, you need more bad?"
Cons: "The flight crew and staff were all great!"
Pros: "The crew was great and nice. Very professional and clearly made safety number one."
Cons: "We had an issue with the rudder that led to an aborted take off. Then when we finally got to RDU the ground crew was not available to marshal the plane in."
Pros: "The only positive of this leg is that it was less infuriating than the flight from RDU to Boston"
Cons: "Delta's partnership with Go Jet seriously compromises the legacy carrier's reputation. I am a Delta fan - although flexible enough to use other choices when necessary. I will no longer fly a Go Jet operated leg when other choices are available. For my trips to Boston, that means Jet Blue. Sorry Delta. I'll see you back on a true Delta route."
Pros: "The flight was quick, safe, and the crew was courteous and attentive."
Cons: "delayed 2+ hours due to runway maintenance. You'd think those things would be better planned..."
Cons: "The delay on the runway"
Pros: "Hard to like anything with this delay -- missed 3 appointments in Raleigh."
Cons: "If you have to swap out planes, do it at night, not the morning of the flight! And tell the customers in advance, so they can get some sleep instead of hurrying to the airport for an "on time" flight that couldn't be flown because of an equipment problem."
Pros: "The food has REALLY improved!! GREAT CREW!"
Pros: "Crew aware of my children's nut allergy and chose not to serve"
Cons: "Coffee horrible"
Pros: "absolutely nothing"
Cons: "no food while waiting flight cancelled and no vendors open in the airport, stood in line for 4 hours only to be told no flights available, wasn't asked if they could feed me, put me up in a hotel, absolutely no compensation for me not being able to see my son graduate in the Air Force."
Pros: "Everything was decent, good entertainment, nice crew, etc."
Cons: "Nothing was bad."
Cons: "Reservation. Checkin. Seating. Flight."
Pros: "Everything was great! It is however a mystery why the attendants find it hard to smile once in a while. They were all attentive which is more important than serving with a smile."
Cons: "Cramped, uncomfortable tin can of an airplane. Barely tolerable for even an hour’s flight."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and boarding was easy."
Cons: "didn't provide snacks. They took a long time to retrieve the luggage that was checked at the gate."
Pros: "Crew were friendly, half full flight was nice to have room"
Pros: "My Delta flight from Salt Lake to Orlando was the dreaded redeye. Flight was packed, no empty seats. I had a middle row seat. But the plane was new and the seats were comfortable. The flight arrived early.I slept or tried to sleep the entire flight. No complaints."
Pros: "USB and AC power supplied in-seat is incredibly nice feature."
Cons: "1 of the 3 bags we checked was forgotten at JFK airport. Since we had a 5 hour layover, Delta had ample time to get the bag on the plane."
Pros: "Fast boarding and service."
Cons: "Food mediocre, coffee bitter like pots weren't cleaned, frigid cabin temperatures while in flight."
Pros: "On time, friendly staff, advertised Gogo Wifi not working."
Pros: "I like the fact that I made it to Raleigh on time to make my connection"
Cons: "the fee should be more clearly explained for example many times you offer flights that have two connections or more to get a seat assignment on each connection you are required to pay unless you want to wait until the last minute also with this ticket you have to board last on the plane when you board last on the plane chances are there will be no place for your carry-on bags so I don't understand why this type of fair you promote because it's useless"
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."
Pros: "More clarification pre purchasing of extra bag fees"
Cons: "$50 bag fee. Attendants not friendly. The seat pocket had chewed gum on magazine. Trays were dirty when I turned on the light- looked like blood. Will not fly American anymore."
Cons: "I had already landed late from Budapest, and therefore missed my connecting flight to Raleigh, so I was put on a different flight to Raleigh via Philadelphia. Only, my new flight from London was delayed by one hour, causing me to land late in Philadelphia, and miss my new connecting flight to Raleigh. I was put on a different flight, but there was no seat for me, so I ended up being stuck at the airport overnight. All these in one day!"
Pros: "The smooth boarding process and the enterainment."
Cons: "The limited food option. In general, there's not much vegetables. The food is either a pasta dish (quite heavy) or a meat dish with potatoes or rice."
Pros: "It served the function of crossing the ocean. The crew was kind."
Cons: "The airplane was outdated. It did not have personal entertainment suites at each seat. I haven't flown across the ocean without being able to choose my own movie in 3 years. Also, because of the outdated entertainment suite, the headphone jack is located in the armrest to the side instead of in the seat back in front of you. This caused me to bend my 3.5mm headphone connection at one point while I was moving my leg, because the connection jack is located below thigh level. The temperature was unbearable, and could not be controlled by the flight crew. Dressed for winter weather and roasted for the entire flight. I actually was dehydrated when we landed because I was sweating for 7 hours crossing the ocean."
Pros: "Flight research tools."
Cons: "After choosing seats through this website we were kicked out of all of them and was separated from my partner. Every single flight we took was late and we missed a connection due to a late take off. The low cost was not worth the extreme effort and connecting flights."
Pros: "I was able to fall asleep and we didn't have to wait at the dock very long. Arrived on time and no delays."
Cons: "They flight attendant I had who took my drink order seemed distracted and basically threw my pretzels down on my tray table."
Pros: "The service was excellent, and we arrived ahead of schedule."
Pros: "Medical emergency response and support was excellent."
Cons: "No pre-boarding for infant. Straight legroom in 13D still had seat in front recline into my knees at 6'5". Extra legroom purchase did not provide any extra legroom. Need to know what seats provide extra legroom for 6'5" tall passengers."
Cons: "AA was slow to act or communicate and was half hearted in their attempt to make up for the cancelled flight"
Pros: "No delays, speedy boarding and off boarding."
Cons: "Nothing..it was great."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Boarding is typical disorderly. Seating us getting smaller."
Pros: "Baggage handling is very slow. Speed it up with baggage manager changes."
Cons: "Baggage handling is very skow."
Cons: "The previous crew did not do some kind of check so leaving Reno was delayed which left almost no time to get to my connecting flight. No one seemed very happy at all."
Cons: "Company blamed weather for flight cancelation and did not pay hotel and meals. Onboarding crew were very rude and not helpful, Food provided in the flight is very bad."
Pros: "Politeness of the crew"
Cons: "Not very spacious and entertainment only offered at My own expense"
Pros: "Great customer service and attention"
Cons: "No inflight entertainment"
Cons: "huge delay 7 hours??????????????? I ended up sleeping the rest of the night in the airport"
Pros: "The crew were friendly"
Cons: "Bad seating system you can have a front of plane seat, but be boarded last. That creates personal items from being able to be placed near your seat and forced to put in bins at back of plane. That means waiting for entire plane to unboard before getting personal items"
Pros: "Getting there"
Cons: "Waiting 2.5 hours bc flight attendant didn't show up"
Cons: "Missed this flight because of missing the first flight"
Pros: "On time"
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: "Was delayed over 3 hours"
Cons: "Delayed over 3 hours"
Pros: "Delays caused a little stress but all in all a good experience."
Cons: "Late arrival to DCA."
Pros: "That I made it alive."
Cons: "I lost my keys and not one single person has contacted me about my lost set of keys, even when I left my contact info with them."
Cons: "Flight delay, awful boarding, had to switch planes, no entertainment, no free wifi"
Pros: "Flight from Dallas to Boston was comfortable and pilot made up for lost time in previous flight"
Cons: "Flight leaving Reno was 40 minutes late due to a plane not coming in which is just a part of flying but after the plane arrived we had to wait an additional 20 minutes to board because the flight attendants got off the plane to do whatever in the airport and then the same ones came back 15-20 minutes later and got on the plane. I should not almost miss the flight so the staff can get off the plane to stretch their legs or get a coffee."
Cons: "Arriving early to Philadelphia"
Cons: "Flight delayed on tarmac for almost an hour. No air during delay. Seats are not very comfortable."
Cons: "My flight that had been scheduled for months was cancelled out of the blue and when I spoke to American it was for scheduled maintenance. So which was scheduled first? I would assume my flight. Lost a whole day of vacation. Thoroughly irate."
Pros: "Staff friensly"
Cons: "Multiple delays and gate changes the last when we were already were to start boarding Aircraft seating had some issues."
Cons: "No way to charge a cell phone during the flight. No chargers at the airport waiting area for the flight. There was a metal box under the seat in front of me so i could not out my bag there, could not even fit my feet there."
Cons: "My 3rd cancelled American flight this summer. No fun. Takes twice as long to get home when they do that. Time to switch airlines."
Pros: "That we didn't crash"
Cons: "Our flight did not depart until 40 minutes after it was supposed too due to some staff confusion. Hardly got water."
Pros: "Honestly - nothing!"
Cons: "Old 767 with very tight seating configuration made it impossible to et comfortable. The crew seemed generally pissed, especially outbound from RDU. Food was awful! Pretty much a Greyhound bus ride to London and back."
Pros: "I like it every thing about the flight I always find the suitable timing and cheapest fares. I always get a rental car at the airport. This is the best traveling service ever."
Cons: "Running behind schedule."
Pros: "The crew had excellent customer service"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "I arrived safely at my destination on time. Airport was nice and clean in Reno."
Pros: "Everything was very smooth-uneventful"
Pros: "Everything was well run, the usual jam to get on the plane but that's a USAir tradition."
Pros: "Assigned seating"
Cons: "Crew was salty"
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Long lay over, could not get access to finair web site to get upgrade."
Pros: "All the AA staff were great, very helpful as I was traveling alone with my 10 month old son. One of the flight attendants helped me carry our things on, because it's tough to carry my son in his safety seat and our bags through the narrow aisles without beating up everyone in the aisle seats as we go through! She also checked on us multiple times to see if there was anything else she could help us with."
Cons: "The AA check-in at Heathrow is terrible. It took us over an hour to get through the line, then another 20 minutes to get our seats changed because the seats we had been assigned weren't suitable for an infant safety seat! Also, the plane is older than the one I first took on the RDU to london route back in 2001. The seating is cramped and there is no seat back entertainment."
Cons: "The flight was delayed. When we arrived to RDU we had to wait for about 10 minutes for staff to marshal us in and then we had to wait another 10 minutes for them to open the door. This was at 1am!"
Cons: "Sat on the runway way too long. Hot. Cramped plane"
Pros: "The roominess of the plane. Awesome."
Cons: "Very turbulent flight"
Cons: "Never made it to destination"
Pros: "One of us had the last seat on the plane even though they were reserved almost a month ago. However we had signed up for basic economy so that was not a shock. What was a shock was that water was dripping from the top side track onto his lap and he had to use the provided brochures to redirect the dripping water. The steward said it was condensation and that was it. Also, since it was next to bathroom, the smell wasn't great and the small child screaming while waiting to get into the bathroom wasn't pleasant."
Cons: "Airplane went to the wrong airport and caused 3 hour delay . Missed my connecting flight."
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."
Pros: "I did not like anything about this experience. Sent young man Spanish speaking only. Wrote a note and called the airline. He missed his flight. No one helped him."
Cons: "Sent young man Spanish speaking only. Wrote a note and called the airline to inform about language barrier. Gate changed. No one helped him.He missed his flight. was missed inform how he could be accommodate."
Pros: "Good and frequent updates on delays and changes."
Cons: "No reasons for delays."
Pros: "boarding was efficient and fast; easy check in"
Cons: "oversold flight with 16+ standbys multiple flight delays with vague or no explanations"
Pros: "Service at the boarding gate."
Cons: "Comfort= no leg room, people pack like sardines Food+ have to purchase you own food. Entertainment= have to purchase Wi-Fi to get entertainment Overall after flight for almost 15 hrs. I was hoping to get some comfort for this flight."
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."
Cons: "I had no indication that my flight was actually with united and not air canada. I almost missed my flight as a result. Was incredibly stressful."
Pros: "Everything worked. Smooth process. But online check in didn't work well for us."
Cons: "Online check-in."
Pros: "Pilot was excellent, didn't even feel the wheels touch down at RDU. It was a turbulent flight with thunderstorms (barely too bumpy for drink service) but Captain made it as smooth as possible and also kept us well informed what to expect. Plane was also on time, though many flights that day were late."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled after a 3 hour delay. The next flight out was from a different airport, 14 hours later and with another connection. I would not have arrived home for another 28 hours. I decided to rent a car and drive the 4.5 hours home instead. Processing the refund has been nearly impossible."
Cons: "The layover/ delay was bad and inconvenient."
Cons: "The crew workers attitude"
Cons: "Late take off and had to wait for ground crew when landed"
Pros: "my flight was on time, and quick which is always helpful. I was able to sit at the seat I picked as well."
Cons: "Boarding took so long between all the kids which i think could have moved faster. The seats are always tight without much room. I'm pretty small so it doesn't affect me as much but I could tell some of the other travelers were uncomfortable. United has got to step up their snack game too. I got like a zesty ranch snack and I was happy I brought my own snacks."
Cons: "Once again just like the first United flight the AC was so cold. They did not offer blankets and my son was so cold I had to unpack tshirts to wrap him. Will not fly this airline again. This has happened twice now."
Pros: "The flight overall went fast - boarded, took off, landed within an hour."
Cons: "There was only one snack - a zesty ranch snack mix. I couldn't eat it because it was a little spicy. I was not offered an alternative, I don't know if there was one."
Pros: "Everything Was good crew courteous"
Cons: "Everything was good"
Pros: "No delays, was actually 35 minutes early on my return flight, attendants were especially kind to me and helped me out significantly, and I was pleased with the free in-flight entertainment via the free Wifi. Overall, a Good experience with United."
Cons: "Entertainment was announced, yet nothing came up when I connected with the United app."
Pros: "Nothing. Both airlines refused to accept responsibility."
Cons: "Security was down to 4 officers after 8 pm, which is normal practice. We where in line for 2 hrs with TSA. Neither airline made any attempt to assist getting us to the gate faster to make our flight on time. We received no assistance from United or Lufthansa airlines and had to sleep in the airport overnight."
Pros: "The crew for this flight was amazing! Very helpful and informative. Friendly is an understatement. Safety was a priority especially when we went through a little turbulence. Thank you for making this a wonderful experience."
Cons: "Besides taking off late, the worst part was the new seats are the smallest ever. I could not sit without my knees jammed into the seat in front of me, and on both legs, Ithe seats were narrow that the people next to me and I were overlapping shoulders - that was a first. Unless its flights in the future are significantly advantageous, United's losing my business. It's not worth saving a few bucks to me to be so uncomfortable."
Cons: "flew delta on way down to liberia and they did not charge for any entertainment."
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: "Easy process, no issues. Pilot handled turbulence well, landed pretty smoothly. It was a good trip."
Cons: "No complaint except the trash other passengers left on the plan."
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: "The person next to me was overweight however the armrest was able to be down during the flight making it only slightly uncomfortable."
Pros: "Good crew Landed on time"
Cons: "Bumpy ride"
Pros: "The single best thing was that the cabin lights were dimmed on the way to Raleigh so I could sleep since it was so late. The crew was polite and patient. Getting re-booked for a new flight after my original flight had been cancelled wasn't too bad. Text message updates are helpful (but could use more info)."
Cons: "I arrived into Newark to find out that my flight had been cancelled. I'm still not sure why it was cancelled. Then, I was placed on a new flight that was intended to leave at 8:30pm, but didn't leave until 1:00am. I spent 10 hours in the Newark airport where, even though charging stations were in abundance, wifi was non-functioning. I received 7 text messages, each one with new departure times. I appreciated the texts, but would have liked to have more information about why we were delayed. Communication from gate agents can go such a long way. I spent a ton of money on bad airport food and couldn't work due to the lack of wifi. I never understand why nothing is offered to passengers in return for such delays--whatever happened to food vouchers, etc.?"
Pros: "Had the row to myself in Economy Plus. Beautiful afternoon skies. Easy and comfortable."
Pros: "Enjoyed the small size of the Raleigh airport."
Pros: "I liked how friendly the attendants were."
Cons: "I hated how it kept delaying and delaying I didn't know what to do or if to leave and come back time change was ridiculous"
Pros: "The flight was fine and on time. All staff from the check-in to the flight were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The only complaints have to do with the other customers flying. Not reading up on the carry-on dimension guidelines and delaying everything. No issues with United at all."
Pros: "Our stewardess' were great."
Cons: "The seats were hard, the plane was cold, & the overhead lights were so bright and never turned off."
Cons: "Flight delayed. Missed connecting flight."
Pros: "We boarded the plane, made it to the runway when a light came on causing us to have to wait and wait on the plane until they had to bring us back to the gate where we had to exit the plane and go back to WAITING in the terminal. We were so delayed I missed all of my meetings and lost business because they could not give us an ETA at all or updated on our flight."
Pros: "Aisle seat."
Cons: "They made my dad check his bag even though there was space."
Cons: "Small crappy plain. We didn't have food or entertainment"
Pros: "Lots of room"
Cons: "Flight was delayed. New plane but seats are incredibly uncomfortable."
Pros: "Flight was on time, in fact, arrival was early."
Cons: "The seating was a bit tight."
Pros: "On time, friendly staff"
Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "Small aircraft."
Pros: "Crew was grumpy. So glad that I brought my own water and snacks for the long flight! Why would I pay $2.99 for water on the flight? No Wi-Fi, AT ALL. Ridiculous to have to pay for everything. Never again. You guys need to update your system. No savings at all."
Cons: "Stop charging for every little thing. Train your crew better to deal with travelers. Update your services."
Pros: "Leg room, fun crew"
Cons: "Not sure the point of flying the "no frills" airlines. It certainly wasn't cheap and no carry on and plastic seats makes we wished I booked Delta."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 6 hours due to the pilot not showing up for his shift, absolutely unacceptible"
Pros: "The crew was very good, the plane was clean. The seats seemed brand new and were relatively spacious."
Cons: "I was not made aware that the regular seats do not recline as they do on all other airlines I have ever traveled on. Since I was taking a long, red eye flight it was impossible to sleep. When I asked an attendant I was told that they are 'predesigned for your comfort'..."
Cons: "5+ hour delay the only compensation was a voucher for a cup of coffee"
Pros: "AFlight was fast and crew was accomdating."
Cons: "I did not like the fact that I was padded down not once but twice at the age of 69 almost 70. Really did not know I was a threat to the airlines. I'm staying with my daughter at Ft.Bragg."
Cons: "I did not like it took an ENTIRE hour for the passengers and MYSELF to get our bags off of baggage claim. Our flight landed @ 11:38 pm we did NOT get till an hour later! I will be contacting corporate!"
Cons: "Every thing was ok"
Cons: "Delayed both ways to start out. Got to the airport 2 hours early and the workers were not even there to check our luggage. Had to wait until 4:30-4:45 before checking luggage and going through TSA when flight left at 6:20. Delayed due to losing log sheet after everyone already boarded, $45 checked bag (ridiculous), no complimentary drinks have to pay $2.99, flight was FREEZING to the point where I couldn’t sleep and I didn’t sleep the night before, talked about their credit card for way too long like they were in dire need of your business, landed and had no one to bring the walkway so we could get off the plane. Very disappointed in this airline"
Cons: "Late. Charge for everything. Cramped. Cheap."
Pros: "Nothing. The only thing that was good it was that it was a direct flight, however with the delay it make it longer than other flights with stops"
Cons: "Will not use your airline in the future due unreliable flights. Never experienced this with any other airline"
Pros: "The flight was smooth and arrived early."
Cons: "The seats were extremely uncomfortable. After 30 minutes, it felt like you were sitting on ply-wood. Seats did not recline at all. No leg room. Flight attendants stayed to themselves during the flight and seem to do the absolute minimum. Luggage retrieval took forever."
Cons: "I was very upset by the cost of my bags and the fact that not even a soda or peanut was included. If I would have known this I wouldn’t have purchased from Frontier. Other airlines were as cheap if you count the bag fee and they have entertainment and snacks! I will not fly them again!"
Pros: "Announcement made on plane was good. That’s about it."
Cons: "Crew members are like high school kids. I was on one of their over night flights. It got delayed 3 hours, but that’s not what bothered me. What bothered me was how unprofessional cabin crew were. Our flight finally departed around 2:00 am. Naturally most of us passengers were tired and trying to sleep. The light was out and I was ready to sleep. Well I was sitting one of the last rows where all the crews “hang out” and talk INCREDIBLY loud about stuff far from work related. They were screaming and laughing, and the party lasted until 4:10 am when the noisiest guy finally walked to the front of airplane. What kind of person can keep talking so loud when 23:00 flight get delayed 3 hours and all the lights were out and every passenger is being quiet? How inconsiderate is that? How thoughtless is that? And most importantly how unprofessional is it to work like that? I really wanted to tell those people to shut up but I was sitting in the middle and didn’t want to bother other passengers. You know, even if I did talk to them, people like that probably wouldn’t understand what they were doing wrong and I would waste my time anyway. So in conclusion, NEVER FLY FRONTIER. I’d pay whatever to fly different airlines."
Pros: "The flight was on time."
Cons: "I didn't like the bag fees The seats didn't recline There were no entertainment options No complimentary snacks They charge to select seats together The cheap flight cost more than better airlines in the end due to bag fees and selecting seats."
Pros: "The only thing I liked was getting off in the airplane"
Cons: "Terrible absolutely terrible most uncomfortable seats ever even with insurance on our flights they did nothing to help us when we came in an hour late"
Cons: "A la carte pricing! Metal chairs! Couldn't check in right away."
Pros: "Checking in was easy"
Cons: "Most uncomfortable seats ever. They don't even recline. NO Wi-Fi, no entertainment at all! Roughest landing ever on a plane."
Cons: "I was not on this flight. Despite the fact that my ticket was clearly for this flight, I ended up on a flight to Charlotte, not Raleigh. I do not know how this happened. Yes, perhaps I could have been more careful in the middle of the night while making a mad dash from one flight to the next. But how is it possible that Frontier can scan my ticket and not notice that I'm about to board the wrong flight? How is it possible that their computer system didn't alert them that I was about to board a flight for which I did not have a ticket? It seems more likely that the person who scanned my ticket wasn't paying attention."
Pros: "The design of the seats"
Cons: "The staff did not work they sat in the back of the plane the whole time talking about other employees captains and how dissatisfied they are with the shifts that they work etc. The crew even had passengers move from the back row 30 so they could have a place to sit in the back of the plane ."
Pros: "I like that the flight was nonstop early morning and late evening. That's it!"
Cons: "I hate all the fees. It is a wonder Frontier airlines is not charging to breathe their air, I hate that! The seats are too tight, and the airplanes are old."
Pros: "non-stop flight"
Cons: "The crew was unfriendly. Had to pay for carry on's. Also had to pay for drinks and snack. Took over an hour to even be offered a water."
Pros: "The staff was funny and created a light-hearted and relaxed atmosphere. The flight overall was comfortable and the plane was nice."
Cons: "Paid for the flight initially. Thought it was a great rate. As it came closer to my trip all these hidden fees such as paying for the seats, paying for carryons began to appear, which was very inconvenient and unusual for a flight."
Pros: "The fares are unbeatable"
Cons: "Consistently late."
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: "Everything went smoothly and on time"
Cons: "Having flown multiple times on Frontier, I find it odd that you never hear anything from the cockpit. Like: Welcome passengers. estimated time in flight, crusing altitude, estimated arrival time, weather at destination, starting decent, etc. Of course, as an ex-military and corporate aviation pilot, the more I know the more comfortable and connected I feel."
Cons: "The boarding process was hectic and not organized. Seats extremely uncomfortable. Flight was freezing the entire time. Having to pay additional for every single additional bag brought on board."
Pros: "The price was the draw, but it is very true on Frontier Airlines "you get what you pay for""
Cons: "Seats were very thinly padded, small and non adjustable. The price for both CARRY ON and checked luggage was the highest I have found, $45 carry on and $40 checked. The price for a drink of any kind, water, soft drink and so forth was way too high. Anything to eat was also out of line. If you are diabetic be for warned, bring your own. My flight from Nashville to Las Vegas was so bad, as far as hidden fees and customer service goes, I tried to book a on any other airline for the return trip to Nashville. This was even though I had a round trip ticket on Frontier. To my dismay all other airlines were full. I am writing this review as I wait at the gate for a departure time on my Frontier return trip, we are 2 hours late for departure with no new departure time given. There are not any Frontier employees in the gate area to give updates. This is the bottom of the barrel for airlines and I will not ever be flying Frontier Airlines again."
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: "Most everything else was oK."
Cons: "As I said, the seats don't recline, and are shy on padding. Very uncomfortable. Might be ok for a short flight, but, NOT 3-4 hours. Won't do that again!"
Pros: "Good price; easy to book; easy boarding; very punctual (everything on time)."
Cons: "Plane was very uncomfortable and cramped; Charged extra for everything (I thought they would ask for more money for carrying my wallet and a pocket comb.). Traveled as a couple; had to pay extra to insure that we could sit together. Are you kidding???"
Pros: "Hummm, landed safely! I do like that "carry on" people have to pay extra."
Cons: "No reclining seats even after paying an extra $50 for the good seats (and to ensure sitting by spouse). Cannot even get a glass of water without an extra charge."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly"
Cons: "Paying extra for what would have been a carry on for UA or AA"
Pros: "Flight attendants and gate personnel were very gracious. Nice flight (weather cooperated) and no delays."
Cons: "Desk personnel at ORD were horrible, very abrupt, and just plain angry. Everyone has a bad day, but I'm easy to deal with and the only thing I did was step one foot over the "wait" line to the counter. I apologized after you snapped at me and continued to smile... while you continued to frown and be condescending. That alone means I don't fly your airline again. I can afford the extra for Delta and I should have stayed there. Seats were really uncomfortable and though we paid extra for the better seats, leg room was at a minimum. Again, about what I expected. All told, for 1 bag and a little more legroom, we paid an extra $115 per tick. Not really any savings over a more full-service airline."
Pros: "Smooth effective boarding to the plane."
Cons: "Seats were like the park bench, hard as rock. By the time we landed I had a sore back and neck. I don't think cabin was pressurized properly or there was something not right as my Airpop during landing was much more savior than I have even had and was very painful. his was first and will be last flight with them. Not worth the $30/$40 saving you make."
Pros: "Crew much friendlier than the crew we had from St. Louis to Las Vegas. Unlike our flight from St. Louis to Las Vegas e were boarding properly with Zone 1 going first. (We paid extra for Zone 1)"
Cons: "Seating room left much to be desired. No room for my long legs"
Cons: "Delay of two hours"
Pros: "Flight was fine, golf clubs made it OK."
Cons: "Be prepared to pay extra for EVERYTHING!"
Cons: "I don't know why I chose to fly frontier again. Cheap rates, but you have to pay for a carry on, which is ridiculous. You don't get a free beverage, the crew is alright and the seats are so uncomfortable and small. I can't imagine how someone bigger than a 5'4, 120lb female could sit through a flight. This was my last time flying with this company and I will not recommend it to anyone!"
Pros: "- Price. It's the cheapest way from A to B, which is the only reason I would fly again."
Cons: "- Seats were very uncomfortable. They do not recline unless you're first class. - Nothing besides the flight is included in ticket price. Drinks, snacks, blankets, in-flight entertainment, even baggage fees (unless you're military) are all extra $$. - "First class" is laughable. The seats are a different color and can recline a few inches. That's literally it."
Pros: "The good thing about my experience traveling with Frontier was safety, I don't care about hours waiting to depart as long as technicians staff gives the great light to get on board. Last and not forgotten is a non stop flight so to me al the compliance end up within 4 to 5 hours .The flight crew was very kind with the passengers."
Cons: "Carry on prices wasn't expected at all, snacks are very limited, seats couldn't lean back. Had this experience by been delayed for 4 hours because technical problems and didn't have the nerve to apply a discount or refund on the trip . Some passengers were upset and concerned about connection flights."
Pros: "First of all they charge you 40$ in internet for your carry on bag ! You dont have food or snacks Its cheap only If you dont have any bags otherwise take an other airline !"
Pros: "On time, good price, efficient boarding, pleasant flight attendants"
Cons: "Nickel and dime price methodology, outdoor boarding in Trenton, bagge claim is slow, $6 seats are cramped"
Cons: "Over 1.5 hr delay in Las Vegas- sometime cannot be helped, I understand."
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "We waited for over 5 1/2 hours for the pilots to get to the airport. The reason given by the flight crew was weather related. We were offer nothing in the was of compensation for our time. The delay caused me to miss a day of work."
Pros: "I have to say I love the price. I visit my daughter in Las Vegas every year and it cost her so much money but your flight price was amazing. Because of Frontier I got to see her twice this year and I only plan on using you."
Cons: "The line to check in was so long but then someone from Frontier came and got all the customers who checked in on line already. That made a big difference."
Pros: "$45 to carry on a bag and put in the overhead bin. Ticket was cheap but after paying $45 EACH WAY I spent more than buying a ticket on another airline that lets you carry on a bag for free. They even charge for soda. Ripoff. Will never fly this airline again. Buyer Beware. There is no way to know about the hidden fees before buying your ticket unless you want to spend an hour or more combing through the multiple pages of fine print."
Pros: "Excellent crew, flight left and arrived on time."
Cons: "Seats uncomfortable, non acceptance of cash."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Sitting on the plane for over an Hour before take off. No complimentary water or snacks."
