Cons: "Boarding delayed, flew over an hour off course"

Cons: "There was a problem fueling the plane and we had to wait on the tarmac for 20 minutes."

Pros: "Crew was really great trying to defuse a challenging delay with really great customer service."
Cons: "Both flights between Boston and New Orleans were delayed due to mechanical issues. We waited on the plane for 1 1/2 hours before returning to gate to correct the problem.

Cons: "Not being delayed"

Pros: "Crew and the seat was great"

Cons: "Maybe a vegetarian or salad selection."

Cons: "Good overall experience, paying for pillow, blanket and headphones a bit much"

Cons: "I like to look out at the sky. For some reason the shades near me seemed to have to be down."

Pros: "The boarding process was good."
Cons: "The flight attendants were not very friendly."

Cons: "I did not like the fact that I had to spend 8 hours in the airport waiting for the plane. It had nothing to do with the weather. It was mechanical at one airport and it was passenger problems on the plane going to New Orleans. I got a food voucher but it was because I asked for it. The least they could have done for The passengers without asking for it."

Cons: "Was 6 hours late. Pretty ridiculous."

Cons: "Departed an hour late, waited at the plane."

Pros: "The check in employees and comfortable seats."
Cons: "My flight had so many delays that my international final destination became 12 hours longer. I paid more for a shorter flight online when I could've paid less for a longer flight with a different airline since the longer flight would've still probably be less flying time then what I had to go through."

Cons: "The plane was REALLY old feeling. Tray tables wouldn’t stay up, my seat wouldn’t lock in the full upright position so on takeoff I got pushed forward by my seat back. The tiny TVs feel so outdated...like you’re on a plane from year 2000"

Pros: "The flight attendants were very nice and friendly"

Cons: "The wifi was already known to be not working from prior flight, and again wasn’t working on this leg of flight... could consider using the system that Southwest uses, as that is ready to go on ground and throughout flight (better than Delta or United). Thanjs"

Pros: "The crew was very friendly and efficient, and the plane was very clean. Also, the seats are roomier and more comfortable than other airlines."

Pros: "Pilot kept us up to date on status of our departure"
Cons: "Crew was discourteous and seemed annoyed and departure was late"

Cons: "I requested a seatbelt extension from 2 different flight attendants and both said sure and then never returned... I would have understood if they did not have any or any left, and would have rated higher if they had given me any answer or said no to begin with! To be forgotten once was bad enough to have to ask again in front of all my fellow passengers was slightly embarrassing...."

Pros: "Great service, on time, smooth takeoff and landing. Perfect!"

Pros: "My wife and I upgraded to Even More Leg Room seats and ended up in the emergency aisle. We had tons of room to stretch out and we were the only ones in the entire row. Free Wifi was also really great!"
Cons: "Our boarding pass said boarding would start at 10:01am so we grabbed some breakfast. Unfortunately, they started boarding 15 minutes early so we had to try and slam down our food to get on to the plane."

Pros: "Pilot came out to talk to us! Flight attendant handled things very well!"
Cons: "Wish there had been more food options."

Cons: "To let me on the flight"

Cons: "The pilot take off, navigation in the air, and landing were horrible ."

Cons: "My sister’s checked in luggage was in poor shape when we got it in Albany. We noticed an outside compartment was unzipped. So we checked to see if anything was missing and a souvenir from Mexico was gone. Then we realized a zipper was missing from the luggage and then decided to check all the other compartments and realized her bag of jewelry was gone. The woman at baggage services in Albany told us Delta is not responsible for lost belongings. Also tried to tell us theft is not an issue because there are cameras everywhere. Well you are telling someone that is missing a bag of jewelry that theft is not a problem. Also, there may be cameras everywhere but I doubt anyone is going to review those cameras to see what happened. I will never fly Delta again."

Pros: "Ok"
Cons: "So uncomfortable with tiny seats"

Pros: "Good flight, got home early."

Cons: "the food"

Pros: "Assertive"
Cons: "Hand out headphones, my phone doesn’t have compatibility."

Pros: "price great; direct flight;"
Cons: "cramped"

Pros: "I needed extra space because of my pregnancy, but didn't realize I couldn't upgrade my seat online or at check in. I was advised to tell the Boarding attendants I needed extra space and they promptly changed my seat and let me preboard. I'm so grateful and I had a wonderful flight back home. I was also very sick, so it was a relief knowing I could rest comfortably before arriving home to my children."

Cons: "Flight delay"

Pros: "On time, comfortable flight. Great crew and service."
Cons: "Nothing. Everything was great."

Pros: "Friendly fast service to Albany"

Pros: "Boarding was fast"
Cons: "The seats were incredibly uncomfortable. This was a Comfort + seat. Very hard, unbearable for an overnight flight."

Cons: "Just the fumes of fuel inside the cabin was nauseating. Never had similar issue with air travel before."

Cons: "Leg room was lacking."

Pros: "New plane. Great movie selection. More stylish seats + bathroom. Overall very good and I think Delta has really made an effort to improve it's service. It's noticeable."
Cons: "Plane felt very dry compared to others. The electrical plug outlet jams right at around your knee level. Bread was cold and rock hard (seriously, can we not come up with a good solution for this?)."

Pros: "Left ontime great breakfast. Good service No complaints"
Cons: "I loved the trip No negative comments."

Pros: "Cabin service was decent"
Cons: "Food was cold. First class service could have been more attentive. While trying to sleep crew talked the entire time."

Cons: "Had to sit on the run way a bit as we were coming in at Albany but not for very long."

Pros: "I liked that I was able to check my carry-on to for free"
Cons: "I hated the seat and zone that I was assigned. I was literally the last seat in the back and also the very last person to board and get off the plane. It was terrible. Please select better seats for customers"

Pros: "Everything. Pilots and crew"

Pros: "Quick service, good information."
Cons: "Not applicable, it was a good flight."

Pros: "Nice crew members always polite and courteous.maybe over polite if anything. Australians don't require subservient service deliverers. The constant "your very welcome" regardless of the service and response to that delivery is off-putting to me. But al in all pretty good in most areas."
Cons: "ON ticketing at New Orleans I wasn't allocated a seat number. At the gate shortly prior to boarding I needed to attend the desk for that allocation. I was also not told which Terminal the plane would go to in LAX and which terminal the connecting flight would be leaving from. They were not sure! Consequently I floundered around at LAX wasting time and bothering people for information that should have been known to me. The security checks are over the top and inconsistent in the US."

Pros: "Newer plane, even though it was a short flight there was a choice of movies and tv shows. Crew was very nice."

Pros: "I enjoyed the upholstery and comfort of the chairs."
Cons: "I prefer to be made aware of delayed flights sooner than an hour before the flight. I would much rather wait in the comfort of home or a hotel over waiting in the airport."

Pros: "I liked getting home"
Cons: "I didn’t like the delays without warning or any benefits at the end."

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: "The crew was amazing. They were attentive and very professional"
Cons: "I upgraded my seat and paid extra for one with more room. And I wasn’t impressed with my upgrade, doesn’t feel like more leg than regular seats. Comfort was below average. The crew"

Cons: "The overhead bin did not stay down low enough so that I could place my bag in. It would lower then before I could place my bag raise slightly by a few inches. For someone of my height (5’5”) that was problematic. Fortunately another passenger saw my dilemma and held the bin lower to its full opening capacity. This also momentarily slowed down the boarding process."

Cons: "If some takes up two seats , then they should buy two seats. Very simple"

Cons: "There was no gluten free snack option."

Cons: "Extremely long queue"

Pros: "Friendly staff.."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Good service, on time, clean planes"
Cons: "The commuter Jets seats are really small unless you pay for Delta Comfort"

Pros: "Free pretzels and drink"

Cons: "N/an/a"

Pros: "The fact that there were no delays!"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Great gate agent at JFK on the layover."
Cons: "No assigned seats on second flight til we got to JFK."

Pros: "Left ontime, arrived 30minutes early."

Pros: "Seats in economy had a little more elbow room and space. They offered free movies and free satelite tv as well as better snack options."
Cons: "Not being able to pick seats until the gate. Traveled with 4 friends and all of us sat separate. 4 of us in middle seats."

Cons: "Delay from Seattle to pasco."

Pros: "Meg, our stewardess came out to tell us there would not be any coffee on a 6 AM flight and that we had time to get coffee, if needed. She kept us informed of flight delays, helpful with my bags."
Cons: "There was nothing that could be done, but due to construction at the airport, waited on tarmac for an hour before we could get to a gate, then they had problems with the ramp and that had to be addressed. But pilot was very good about keeping us informed on delays and he was as frustrated as we were."

Pros: "Very nice employees. Coke, peanuts good."
Cons: "Outgoing plane had tv screens, large, with good movie choices, but was an hour late. Returning, if you brought a phone, you can get an app. My phone is about four inches. No good movies. Seats even smaller on this "new plane." Deboarding chaos. Everyone unhappy. Hour late again."

Pros: "The crew is always great. I liked the environment was cooler. It doesn't need to be refrigerator cold but keeping things on the cooler side is helpful."
Cons: "Boarding class and queuing for boarding is always a clusterf***. People will crowd the gate and board with the wrong class and that creates anxiety and leads to edginess. If a system could be worked out and enforced that would help."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I did not like the fact that I have been with Delta for years and their response to me about booking my flight and using the payment method was they are working on it and there is nothing they can do. They would not even offer to hold my flight for 24 hours in case they fixed the issue within that time frame. It was very disappointing."

Pros: "It was actually a flight from new Orleans to Detroit. Seats were assigned at the gate for myself and many others. It seemed like the gate agent didn't care where she assigned guests who were travelling together as several people were not able to sit with their travel companion. Once I was on the plane I however switched with someone to allow them to sit next to their companion and put me closers to mine. Everything else went smoothly."

Cons: "No entertainment available at all. There were empty seats available and passenger next to me in the aisle seat was not offered to move--she fell asleep with her legs crossed and kept kicking me in the middle seat--I was traveling with the window seat passenger."

Pros: "Smooth ight"
Cons: "Need to add cabin service"

Cons: "Did not allow use of exit rows to improve social distancing (those seats “not in my class of service“). Flight was crowded."

Pros: "Attendants were nice and cordial and made the flight seem like a breeze."
Cons: "Wish the plane was little bigger and not overbooked. It’s not good with people who have claustrophobia and bad anxiety."

Pros: "The cleanliness and the seat arrangements"
Cons: "Snacks could have been given & Small bottled water."

Pros: "Always a friendly crew"
Cons: "A slight delay that they could have been quicker to alert us of"

Pros: "Entertainment Screen in the seat back in front of me"
Cons: "Deplaning. On one of my other flights this week they released us 3 rows at a time to limit social distancing. Thought that was going to be the norm but I guess not."

Pros: "Ground crew was great, they kept us informed about our 3 hrs delay"
Cons: "Get a crew in in less than 3hrs Some people has plans"

Pros: "Very friendly"
Cons: "Everything was perfect"

Cons: "boarding, seating, entertainment"

Cons: "I had my period and desperately needed to use the bathroom. We were told to stay in our seats The entire flight even though there wasn’t much turbulence. The flight attendant yelled at me over the intercom to return to my seat when I tried to get up so I ended up bleeding through my tampon."

Cons: "Wheel got stuck during takeoff. Had to fly standby to get home. Originally told I would not get home that day. It was 8 am"

Cons: "Hard to say...it seemed good. I would have liked complementary baggage check"

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Nice aircraft once I got to Texas. From my hometown the plane was kind of old."
Cons: "Well they lost my luggage after my original flight was delayed 2+ hours. Rebooked my flight but never communicated to me whether they would handle my bag transfer or if I needed to go get them myself From the baggage claim to put into the correct flight. So I had no clothes..."

Pros: "Nothing, the flight was cancelled and we missed our friends 70th birthday celebration."

Pros: "The screens allowing us and our children to be entertained in the plane."
Cons: "Not had our plane delayed for over an hour."

Pros: "Boarding"
Cons: "Space in seats"

Pros: "good"

Pros: "The customer service on British Airways is excellent. The meal served on the overnight flight was wonderful."
Cons: "My original flight was rerouted due to a connection delay. They lost our baggage due to rerouting our flight from American airways. We were told that our bags would be delivered the same day and we are still waiting on our bags."

Pros: "organized boarding, quick and professional, flight crew was awesome, very comfortable flight, much appreciated no"
Cons: "No entertainment options on 2+ hour flight. Would have been nice to have."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Our connecting flight to New Orleans was cancelled and we had to rent a car or wait until the next flight out which was 5pm the next day. We opted to rent a car and Had to cancel our return flight home to be refunded. American Airlines cancelled multiple flights and were in total disarray. Still waiting to see if they will honor the refund"

Cons: "I was in the air 24hr, the trip was as good as it gets."

Pros: "Left on time and got us to Dallas safely"
Cons: "Due to weather (not your fault) arrival to Dallas was delayed and we nearly missed connection"

Pros: "Helpful crew - courteous in their attitude towards customers and helped tight connections get out of quickly from the rear of the plane. Smile was on for each interaction."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 50+ mins. The exit row announcement was made twice asking customers to acknowledge verbally which was probably a communication faux pas."

Pros: "Why does a plane run out of Food and wine?"

Pros: "I arrived in Sydney the day I was supposed to. Everything else was a let down and was not what I paid for."
Cons: "American Airlines cancelled a flight because of ‘weather’ from Msy to dfw, all other flights from Msy to Dallas operated on time but were sold out. We were re booked flying through San Francisco, missing out on flying on qantas, which is what I had paid for since they are a premium airline. We were booked on virgin America and then United for the international flight. United charged us each for 2 bags totalling $150 each, despite we booked a ticket with qantas which allows 2 bags each. Virgin America honoured our 2 bags, but united refused to. United also has service and aircraft which do not match the levels of qantas which I has specifically sought out. I could not eat some of the food because of the poor quality, and this is something I’ve never done before on an international flight. Additionally their were a lack of amenities on both flights, and no food vouchers despite our travel delay of over 5 hours. This whole ordeal has cost me money, worktime, and created a lot of stress to where I have had to cancel meeting on my arrival in Sydney."

Pros: "Good service . Timothy was excellent . Hostess ."

Pros: "Excellent flight. No complaints!"

Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours, then moved to the next morning at 6am. Before we got to the hotel, the flight was pushed back to 8am. All for mechanical reasons. We've flown this route before, and have had an abnormally high number of mechanical issues. They seem to use older planes for these shorter flights, and it really shows. Technology could really help ease these situations. American's app does not allow you to look at rebooking options, so we had to stand in line for a solid 30 minutes to speak to an agent. Since it was the last flight of the night, there were only 3 agents there to help an entire plane's worth of people. Calling American didn't help. They couldn't help with hotel/food vouchers. These types of vouchers seem like something else that could be distributed through the app or electronically, eliminating the need to stand in line and grow increasingly frustrated. To add to the fun, the vouchers were not event enough to get a hot dog and drink for dinner, then a coffee and pastry for breakfast. Once we got the vouchers, trying to get to the hotel was a disaster. They had 1 van, so they could get about 10 people every 30 minutes. We just took and Uber, and were eating in the restaurant by the time others were still arriving from the shuttle. There was no one from American there to help coordinate with the hotel or shuttle. We were like blind sheep wandering around looking for the van. Finally, arrive for the flight the next day, and they start boarding about 10 minutes before the 8am takeoff time. So, of course, we were late getting off the ground. Then, when we arrived in Dallas, our gate was occupied by another plane, so we got to sit on an old plane for an extra 30 minutes until another gate opened up for us. Really, other than crashing, not much else could have gone wrong. Made American look completely incompetent...which is happening more the more we use them. Next time, I'll pay a higher fare to fly with Southwest."

Pros: "Very smooth fast check in"
Cons: "The food"

Pros: "Quiet, easy to sleep on"
Cons: "Running late, but only by 30 mins. Better than it could have been!"

Cons: "30 minutes late taking off. Therefore arrived late."

Pros: "Older smaller plane, no wifi"
Cons: "Na"

Cons: "American after 4 hours delay cancelled the flight, AA refused to accept responsibility and refused to book me with another airline (my daughter was having surgery the next day and I was supposed to take care of her) I sent an email asking for them to cover the cost of my last minute ticket with the other airline, and they had refused. I will never fly AA again."

Cons: "Baggage was damaged, which required a claim to be submitted. Company policy requires me to take the damaged baggage home, empty it, and return it to the airport. The airport is 1-1/2 hours from my house. They inconvenience me by handling my baggage like an ape and then continue to inconvenience me by requiring me to go way out of my way to get it repaired. American Airlines apparently does not understand what customer service means."

He said I could take a carry on when I turned up to the gates I was charged another fee for my carry on bag. What is baffling is that when I arrived at Denver people were getting complementary check in baggage. I’m so dissatisfied with the booking and the amount it has now cost me ruining any savings I’d had for sanfrancisco"

Pros: "The crew was great"

Cons: "I bought two return tickets from Orlando to Albany. Wed,March 6 and Sat, March 9. The 3/6 was cancelled. I was never informed. After 3am trip to the airport, I had to pay an additional $300 for a fligt with a different vendor. Offered $88 refund. I will Never fly Frontier again."

Pros: "Chairs don’t recline"

Pros: "Efficient crew."
Cons: "Food included in bundles"

Cons: "No reason given for the delay."

Pros: "Seat width"

Cons: "We were delayed for over two hours! Then sat on the runway forever. Having to pay for both checked and carry on luggage is ridiculous."

Pros: "It was timely no long lines"
Cons: "No free drinks"

Pros: "Cheap"
Cons: "Luggage was expensive"

Pros: "The price!"

Cons: "I arrived 2 hours before my scheduled flight time but had to wait for at least 15 minutes before anyone came to the counter."

Pros: "Price"
Cons: "Delayed flight"

Pros: "arrived 1/2 hr. ahead of schedule and extremely fast baggage arrival (including skis)...professional and courteous staff"
Cons: "very uncomfortable seat bottoms"

Cons: "Do you really save money flying on Frontier? I realize the whole industry is corrupt, but it's just not worth flying with a company who has done all it can to take the pleasure out of travel."

Pros: "That we got to our destination safely and they didn't lose our luggage"
Cons: "Nickel and diming is for EVERYTHING! It was ridiculous after we added up all of our "fees". It would have been so much cheaper to go on a different airline. I believe we were scammed to believe we were going to fly cheaper because we didn't have to pay extras what a scam!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Showed up to the airport in New Orleans to find out my flight was canceled, but had to be told by people from another airline because the Frontier desk was vacant. Received no email, phone call, text or anything to tell me the flight was canceled. Not even one Frontier employee was at the airport to explain the situation. They just left a stack of papers to say the flight was canceled and they weren't offering anymore flights that day. Had to book one on another airline for the next day, so called Frontier to get reimbursed (they said very clearly on the paper that they would reimburse up to $400 in another airline) and spent over two hours on the phone getting passed around from person to person who said they couldn't help me. Still no idea if I'll be getting reimbursed. DO NOT FLY THIS AIRLINE."

Cons: "Didn't like having to get to the airport to get a free seat. Carry ones should be free."

Cons: "the website wouldn't let us finish the check-in process and neither way could we print boarding passes. Even your agent when we checked in at the NO airport said she'd heard often that the website didn't work properly. Wouldn't let us get past the do you have bags to check -- then would blank out and disappear. Very disappointing and very stressful."

Cons: "Frontier cancelled return flight without telling me and refusing to do anything other than refund 75$ or give me a flight 4 days later. Frontier refused to help with hotel or other accommodations and I had to rebook flight with delta for 350$ so I could get back home. Also, the employees from Frontier were extremely rude and refused to even look at me or even answer my questions. They said flight was cancelled due to weather reasons, but American Airlines was able to get planes running on only an hour delay. And, again, I never even had the common courtesy of a call or email, or text that my flight was cancelled! I had to find out when I got to the airport,"

Pros: "Me gusto que es factible"
Cons: "Que me ivan a cobrar 40 dollares por mi maleta de mano. Cuando se supone que sea gratis"

Pros: "Easy check in"
Cons: "Arrival gate at Denver wasn't available for approximately 15 minutes"

Pros: "Efficiency of staff. Time of arrival was earlier than expected."
Cons: "The seating is somewhat cramped."

Pros: "Because when I speak to a customer service representative he never told me that my husband had to pay for the suitcase. And I asked him several times and his answer was no and upon arriving at the aeriopuerto he was charged $ 45.00 for the suitcase of hands"
Cons: "That they always speak to me with the truth"

Pros: "Personnel were great"
Cons: "Luggage took over an hour"

Pros: "Boarding"
Cons: "An air hostess on the flight to New Orleans would make jokes with the guys across the aisle rather than bring me a glass of water. Another air hostess booed me on my way out when being told that."

Cons: "My suitcase was 1 month old and in perfect condition when I arrived for my flight. When I picked it up two hours later, the main zipper had been mangled past the point of repair in such a way that once it was opened, it was impossible to zip it again. When I brought it to the attention of Frontier staff, they said that they don't offer any compensation for "just zippers." As if a suitcase is usable without a functioning zipper. They handed me a xeroxed slip with a phone number if I had a complaint - turns out it was the wrong number, and after waiting over a half hour without a person answering the phone it was crystal clear that Frontier doesn't care about repeat business."

Cons: "Seats did not recline"

Pros: "Three out of four planes on the round trip were new and in excellent condition."
Cons: "Three out of the four planes round trip were delayed. It is ridiculous that the only plane that actually left on time was the very first flight out on a Sunday morning."

Pros: "Smooth all the way. Workers were good airplane was clean"

Pros: "Haven't even gotten on the plane."
Cons: "Southwest is flying out constantly and we're just sitting here. The weather is great but we're still on the ground. Bummer."

Cons: "Flight was late."

Cons: "Being delayed 30 min at the gate and then another hour in the air !"

Cons: "No A/C on the plane while waiting to depart from the gate. When we landed, we sat on the plane for 25 minutes waiting for another plane to leave our gate. A passenger seated next to me asked if he could purchase a snack while we waited. The attendant told him that if it was not a medical emergency he was an adult and would survive."

Cons: "Horrendous. Don't fly Frontier if you are a fequent traveler."

Cons: "Two screaming babies. Great other than that."

Cons: "Didn't make the return flight because our first flight out of Denver didn't happen and we had to cancel the whole trip. Fees we were prepared for- but I will never trust frontier to get me to where I need to go."

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "everything"

Cons: "Everything was fine except the seating. It was the hardest most uncomfortable seating with no flexibility. I am a small person and for a 2 1/2 HR flight my wife and I both very uncomfortablez"

Pros: "Price"
Cons: "Didn't like the "surprise" baggage & carry-on fees."
