Pros: Quick flight. Friendly pilot
Cons: Perfect flight!
Pros: Quick flight. Friendly pilot
Cons: Perfect flight!
Cons: Boarded half hour late. No explanation. Pretty standard on Cape Air these days
Pros: Clean plane
Cons: Seat is not comfortable. It is too hard. My muscles fell asleep
Pros: Professional Crew and Staff
Cons: Newer planes
Cons: Bumpy ride. Blame it on the wind.
Pros: Super nice!
Pros: Fun flight to the cape. Awesome pilot
Pros: Quick flight. Excellent service.
Pros: Excellent woman taking care of a delayed flight. Handled passenger and boarding process as well as check in beautifully and so kind and efficiently!!
Cons: The delay due to mechanical problems
Pros: Smooth flight. Nice option to fly to small airport closer to home.
Cons: Connection booked too close. Missed flight, new flight delayed. Kayak booking does not leave enough time to transfer.
Pros: Friendliest flight crew, airport attendants and security agents anywhere.
Pros: Good people quick flight
Cons: I'm a big guy and it's a really small plane.
Pros: Being the co-pilot
Pros: Flight on time. Nice smooth ride. Very friendly pilot.
Pros: Friendly service, helpful, comfortable flight for a small plane. Good pilot, very professional.
Cons: My only complaint is when we landed in WestChester we deplaned and had to stand in the -5F wind-chill for a good 10-15 minutes while they unloaded our bags. I don't know why they couldn't have taken us inside to wait.
Pros: The View was spectacular. The plane was a little bit too smelly.
Cons: The View was beautiful
Cons: I asked the ground crew for a box that I had checked and was told that it would be forwarded to my next flight. It wasn't. Now cape air is telling me the only way I can get it back is to fly to San Juan and pick it up.
Pros: The ease of changing flights.
Cons: Of the three women at the gate one was rude to everyone. The two others seemed ditzy and clueless. The announcements they made were incomprehensible to many in the passenger audience. There was substantial eye-rolling.
Pros: You see there was a terrible storm that closed the EIS Beef Island Airport. But because I booked through ya'll I was totally screwed. The individual Airlines are not permitted to rebook my ticket because you are a third party carrier. and You would not rebook because the airline could not change the flight status on the first plane from Mayaguez to San Juan - that flight was not cancelled due to the closure but because I would be stuck in San Juan for possibly 2 days with no money and no where to sleep, well you get the point. So InterCaribbean and Cape Air came to the rescue and after a 4-5 hour ordeal and having to travel to Mayaguez airport I am now rebooked.
Cons: Y'all and will never ever ever book through a third party again.
Pros: Friendly & informative pilot, smooth efficient ground crew: they didn't bang up my vintage Levi's back pack...
Cons: No complaints...A+
Pros: My first time on a such small plane and the ride and the landing were very smooth with great views!!
Pros: Shirt flight no food, but bumpy. I almost threw up on a 25 minute flight
Pros: Ride was smooth.
Cons: No information nor staff at counter, so one was uncertain when flight would depart.
Pros: Flying over the traffic heading to Hyannis where you take the ferry to Hyannis. Experienced pilot who told us the stewardess would be passing out food after we were airborne. Good sense of humor in a 9 passenger plane.
Pros: I love the small planes and the overall friendliness of the pilot and the other employees - reservationists, ground crew, and others in the terminal. Once I landed in Nantucket, I had a 1 1/2 hour layover to Hyannis. When I went to check in with the reservationist, she asked if I wanted to get to Hyannis faster or if I had business on the island. I said I would like to get to Hyannis as quickly as I could, so she put me on the next flight which left within 15 minutes. After a long flight from LA to Boston, then to Nantucket, and then to Hyannis, it was nice to get home earlier than expected. I live on the Cape, and I love that I can fly into Hyannis. Then I only have a 25 minute ride home.
Cons: No complaints
Cons: Landing crew in Boston was rude, bossy, and repetitively sciolding, just because I touched the door of the plane. No instructions nor to or warnings were posted, but he kept harassing me and the other passengers.about "our safety".
Pros: It is always a pleasure to fly with Cape Air. The staff especially in Owls Head are phenomenally nice and helpful.
Pros: It was a brief, smooth, enjoyable flight.
Cons: My checked suitcase weighing <30lbs. was not put on the plane because of a weight constraint (combined weight of passengers and their luggage). I collected my suitcase from the airport the next day. Of course, airplane safety is a must, but I saw others dealing with their luggage also having been "bumped". Traveling this way is unreliable and, for me, less than satisfactory.
Pros: The pilots were really friendly, the plane was comfortable, and the trip was short. Nice take off and landing. Very smooth.
Cons: The lady behind me kept showing my seat around and pulling on my hair. Apparently she didn't have enough room or something because it lasted the whole 45 minutes. We hit some turbulence which was pretty rough but not terrible. would have been nice to have arm rests. Also boarding and take off was late and which made me late to my appointments.
Pros: The view from PR to St Thomas was amazing!
Cons: The departure was late for no apparent reason that complicated my meeting with family members in St Thomas.
Cons: Too expensive. 399 for a 40 minute plane ride? Really?
Cons: The flight was cancelled because of engine trouble. As a result we miss our connecting flight to our final destination.
Pros: Great pilots Flies where other airlines don't Quick check in
Cons: Booked a 8:30 AM flight VQS->SJU. At 10AM the night before received an email stating the flight "may have been cancelled." Called cape air, they confirmed cancellation but couldn't rebook me on another flight; went on their website and paid for another flight (10:04). The next morning for way of explanation told that "the plane broke." Got to the airport, initially the replacement flight was delayed till 10:30, then at 11:00 we were told that flight was also cancelled. Since we did not have a connecting flight we were placed at the end of the line. They did get us out later in the day, although i suppose because we were just squeezed in I was sitting in the back where I had to sit cross-legged as i only had about 4 inches of legroom. So 2 cancellations and poor communications on a round trip ticket = mediocre review. If I don't get my money back on the first flight I'll revise this to 1/5.
Pros: Everything! Staff, captain, plane, efficiency, intimacy of the small plane. I don't love flying - it's a means to an end. But, this flight was fun. No food, but it was a 30 minute flight, so no refreshment needed.
Pros: It was a smooth ride. Best flight I haven't had in a long time
Pros: Great service and quick flight from Lebanon to White Plains. Super convenient and the crew was very friendly.
Cons: taking off almost an hour late for a 20-minute flight. poor planning re weight restrictions so that luggage for several passengers had to be put on a future flight. no information given re delay.
Cons: Booked with Cape Air a month before our trip to Bimini. We had quite a few reasonable trip options but decided the float plane would be fun. One week before our departure Cape Air cancels the tickets. No explanation, no rebooking, just a "I'm sorry, too bad, go find something else," we ended up paying full fares through United for another $1000. So much for our affordable weekend getaway. Thanks Cape Air.
Pros: It was my first solo flight, as well as first flight in a small plane. Quick, easy check in and boarding in Mayaguez, PR. In San Juan, exiting and meeting family was not easy, due to terminal design. Overall, great experience.
Pros: But it came on the next flight to Rutland and was delivered to my house that evening.
Cons: Due to weight issue we made it safely to Cuelbra but our bags did not. Hopefully they arrive today or we will be going 2 days without them. No fun
Pros: I'd probably pay for this flight as just an entertaining ride from above to see Puerto Rico.
Pros: Great pilot!
Pros: There was no food or entertainment so you should include a column in the survey that reads: N/A Otherwise excellent pilot!
Pros: Great. But you have to not be scared of small planes. The plane only seats 8 people. You can high five the pilot.
Cons: Very small. I'm 6'4" very tight fit
Pros: The ground crew and flight crew were great.
Cons: Would have appreciated easier steps (lower risers) for boarding. Arthritic knee makes it hard for me to manage the high risers between steps. Also having armrests would have made the flight more comfortable.
Pros: I loved the small craft and easy boarding.
Cons: Flight is a little slower with a smaller plane, but that was expected.
Pros: The easy quick comfort
Pros: So fast and friendly crew. So much easier to fly to Morgantown, instead of driving. Plus the views from above are so great.
Cons: Flight could not be better for a commuter connection.
Pros: Easy passenger seating, and smooth flight
Cons: No restroom!
Pros: Awesome crew. Simple check-in and boarding. Beautiful, scenic views. A+!
Pros: Flight is quick and very smooth. Very pleasant pilots.
Pros: The flight was smooth and relaxing
Pros: Loved the personal service and the view! Smooth flights!
Pros: Never flew on a Cessna, loved the scenery!
Pros: Vary friendly staff!
Pros: Very friendly staff!
Pros: Flight was on time and super smooth. No baggage hassles and as we weren't completely full, I actually had leg room. Pilots and airline staff were super professional and courteous. Beats driving any day!
Cons: No cons
Pros: No TSA!!!
Pros: Exactly what I needed, decently priced flight to save hours of drive-time and minimal headache. Yep - smaller plane, smaller airport but anyone not knowing that will be shocked by many other facts in life. Friendly staffers on sire as well as in the cockpit. Well pleased!
Pros: No long lines. Easy to talk with pilots. If you make it, your baggage will make it!
Cons: Small plane is a little more subject to bumps and turbulence.
Cons: They cancelled my flight for no reason at all.
Pros: I was so upset, tired of being lied to and running through airports to make a connecting flight, I can't think of anything I liked.
Cons: Since I bought my tickets through Kayak, when my flight was canceled the night before I was to leave, it took Hours to get the ticket problem straightened out with me on an earlier flight. I was called back by Kayak minutes after I finally got off the phone to be told That flight was now canceled. Another hour on the phone to get to a 3rd flight arranged. I arrived early and saw everyone sitting around, went to the counter to be told this flight was now delayed. Also was told that the EARLIER Flight I had been changed to, Went off on Time! So I was Lied to. Waited hours as they moved the departure time 4 times! Went through an agonizing security search. Took an hour in a freezing plane to get to Pittsburgh. Missed my flight OF Course and had to pay money for a ticket change and go stand by, barely getting on a connecting flight. I call it the Travel Day From Hell!!!
Pros: Not being a person that likes flying this was the coolest experience I ever had. All I had on my mined was to get to Pittsburgh to see my daughter. Didn't know what to expect when I got to Lancaster but it was really easy. I'm going to do it again. Hour and a half plan ride is better then 15 hour drive
Cons: Really can't think of anything. I should up 2 hours early to figure out what I need to do and everyone from southern airlines and the TSA took care of everything.
Cons: The flight never occurred and wasn't told.
Cons: Return flight home was cancelled and not communicated. Poor customer service to find out about a refund. Never flying with southern again.
Pros: Absolutely nothing.
Cons: I had this airline booked several times (4 flights to be exact) and every. single. time. the flight was either cancelled or changed in some way. In the first instance, the second leg was moved three hours ahead, causing the second leg to depart before the first one, so I had to cancel it. In the second, the first leg was moved three hours before the initial departure time, and I had to cancel it due to scheduling issues. The third time I tried to take this airline, the first leg was cancelled completely and in turn my return flight was also cancelled. Each time, they informed be THE NIGHT BEFORE the flight was supposed to leave that it was either cancelled or modified. Had I not booked all four of these flights at once months in advance, I wouldn't have booked it again after the first instance. Do you know how expensive it is to find alternate transportation THE NIGHT BEFORE you are trying to travel? I will never attempt to fly this airline again. They have a lot of work to do to gain the trust of their passengers and they are not doing it right by any means in my opinion.
Pros: Smooth ride
Pros: Absolutely nothing!
Cons: I never even took the flight - the layover was moved ahead by two hours THE DAY OF THE FLIGHT causing me to cancel my flight, since the layover was then leaving before my first flight even took off! At that time, alternate flights were >$250 one way and I HAD to be at my destination the next day for a wedding. Southern Airways caused me hours of time spent planning and additional money to find alternate transportation. WOULD NOT RECOMMEND -- I am never flying with this airline again!
Pros: Received full refund for ticket.
Cons: Flight was cancelled with no reason provided.
Pros: The price of the ticket was very reasonable.
Cons: I traveled with a colleague from Dulles to Morgantown. Three issues arose: 1. We could not find the ticket counter at Dulles, and no one we asked knew where it was. This could easily be resolved by adding info about how to find the counter to the airline website. 2. My colleague's return flight was canceled and she was never notified. 3. When I went to check in for my return flight, I was told that I was not on the boarding list. It took 30 minutes to get me added to the list even though I had my confirmation. When I asked for an explanation the man at the ticket counter shared: "They're crazy [the customer service]. This happens all the time." Complete incompetence.
Pros: Great Crew, very pleasant. It was nice to be away from all the frustrations common in the main airports and to get to wait with my family right up to boarding time.
Cons: The plane left over 4 hours after departure time. It also took a while to figure out that this airline is not based within the main airport (at both DFW and MEM airports at least) and the address for the actual boarding place was not included in any communication prior to the flight. No compensation for inconveniences caused.
Pros: Everyone was super friendly
Cons: I was the only person on the flight. That was kinda weird. But it was a smooth, easy flight and I would definitely use them again.
Pros: I just loved Southern. It was so easy. I avoided the hassle of the main airport, the parking problems and the waiting in line. Everyone was so friendly. I will definitely fly Southern again!
Pros: The crew was nice and comforting. I was nervous because it was my first time on a 9 seater plane but the ride was surprisingly smooth
Cons: I never even ended up on the plane. The departure time came and went with no communication from the desk agents I was sitting 10 feet away from. No communication about the flight being delayed was given until I asked. It was 3 hours later when they unceremoniously cancelled the flight. And because it was weather-related I didn't receive any of my money back. Worst travel day ever.
Pros: PERSONAL TREATMENT!
Pros: The flight was cancelled No apology or compensation
