Airline reviews

Cons: "Boutique air crew is very friendly. Much nicer experience compared to bigger airlines ."

Pros: "This flight was so late that I couldn’t take it and had to drive from Chadron, to Denver Colorado in order not to miss my international flight from Denver to Montreal."

Pros: "I thought the flight was on time and comfortable. The cost of the flight was very reasonable and it beats driving."

Cons: "The flight was supposed to leave out of Cortez at 6am, the pilot showed up at 620am, and we did not depart untill 635am. Because of this, we missed our next flight out of Denver. There was no reason this flight should have been this late. When attempting to talk to boutique air staff at the airport and on the phone there was nothing they could do. 1. Because we "choose" to fly and 2 bc it was bought through a 3rd party. No one was able to help us. Unfortunately our next flight to Omaha only departs every 2 days. The closest they could get us to home was 7hrs away from our car at the airport. It was not frontier fault that we missed our next flight, it was clearly boutique air. The pilot in Cortez was a complete jerk, had no sense of time or urgency. If we are required to show up 90 minutes early, so should the pilot. We were stranded in Denver unless we wanted to buy all new tickets for around $800 or wait 2 days for next flight . I was very mad at boutique and their staff was less than accommodating or understanding. Very poor service. They would not own anything because flight was bought through kayak."

Pros: "Don't have expired foodstuffs"
Cons: "See above Bruh lmao"

Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "The flight was canceled about 45 min. before flying & delayed the next morning about 2 hours, due to mechanical problems. I wish for more on-time flights"

Cons: "My flight was canceled twice and delayed once so much that I could not make my connection. I ended up having to rent a car rather than fly with Boutique. They will supposedly be reimbursing me for that but I have not received it yet. They would not reimburse me for the money I had to pay to change my connecting flights. I ended up missing two full days of work."

Pros: "Crew was quite professional. Very comfortable cabin. Ample refreshments. Landing was likely the smoothest of my years of travel. Don't let the size of this airline fool you. It is excellent and they serve these regional markets with excellence."

Pros: "The pilots were awesome!"
Cons: "I would have liked them to double check seating arrangements when there is assigned seating. My co-passengers did not care to follow the directions of their assigned seating, which is important to balance weights. I was a little nervous as there were significant weight differences in passengers. 120-350+ pounders. Also, I wasn't disgusted, however the inside was a bit dingy. Could use a little scrub down to get rid of the dirt on the seats. Had an old appearance, definitely not the luxurious look you see on their website!"

Pros: "Best discovery on the west coast! Great personnel, spacious for a small plane, great views. So happy to have tried Boutique!"
Cons: "If flying to LAX be prepared to have plenty of time to make connection. I had to get my carry on bag through baggage claim which added unexpected wait."

Pros: "What did I like? Everything! Service, price, flight conditions, crew were all wonderful. It felt like taking a private jet and was less expensive for my husband and I to fly round trip than to rent a car to drive from Denver to Durango for a week!"

Pros: "Staff, pilot, co-pilot were friendly but professional. Flight on time. Bumpy, stormy day...exciting flight. Small plane, eight seats but challenging weather, which the crews handled with confidence."
Cons: "I have nothing to complain about."

Pros: "Quick check in, no games"
Cons: "Little turbulence"

Pros: "Comfortable"
Cons: "Waited until departure time to start boarding. Start boarding before departure time so you leave when you're supposed to. Plane was sitting at terminal for 3 hours prior to departure. No excuse for leaving late."

Pros: "Had to take a Friday flight to Phoenix to drive back a car to Abq. Waited too long to get a ticket, by mid week the big guys were getting up there in price. I heard about BA before so when I noticed their price coming in the lowest in a KAYAK search I had no hesitation going for it! The whole experience was great. The big airlines are taking all the fun out of flying, long lines thru security, you get on the plane thru a tunnel so you don't even get to see the airplane. With BA checking in is 20 mins before flight, no long lines thru security. You just walk to their terminal, check in and walk out to your plane! The plane is comfortable, the pilots are very friendly. I'll definetely fly BA again!"

Pros: "Same as above."
Cons: "Same as above."

Pros: "Great service, comfy flight, extremely smooth despite the small plane. Best flight experience I've had in a long time!"

Pros: "The convenience and price. Its so affordable now!! The staff is so nice and helpful!"

Pros: "It was an amazing flight. Everyone at Boutique Air was professional, welcoming and friendly. The plane was exceptionally comfortable and the view was incredible."

Pros: "The staff were pleasant to work with."
Cons: "Flight was scheduled to depart at 4:30pm and without any weather or mechanical delays the flight is pushed to 6:30pm. Then 7:00pm. Now 8:00pm. And I am still waiting."

Pros: "zero"
Cons: "The flight delay caused me to miss my connecting flight in Denver. I then had to pay $165 to change my flight. None of the airlines helped waive this fee. This is Boutique's responsibility as the delay was due to "not having enough fuel to get to Denver." This should have been accounted for prior to the 10min before the flight was supposed to depart. I am incredibly disappointed with Boutique and the lack of customer service."

Pros: "Small plane, comfy seats, no hassle"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Loved seats that really recline and table to work on"
Cons: "Had to wait in Greenville for extra 30 mins because needed police officer. Lol there were more Tsa and security than passengers out of Greenville. Pleasant"

Cons: "It has been seriously delayed and I have not taking that flight yet ."

Pros: "The staff seemed nice, but pretty confused about what Boutique airlines was up to."
Cons: "I'm a bit confused how this company has stayed in business. I booked this ticket thinking it would be a novel flight to LAX. Heck, I even paid a little more for the ticket. On my way to the airport I got a call saying the flight was going to be delayed by 5 hours. I was just about at the airport so I figured I'd just wait it out. At the airport there was one checkin counter and it was empty. I sat around for 30 minutes until someone came out to help me checkin. Waited at an empty gate for 5 hours wondering if I was in the right area. 9pm came and went and no plane to be seen. The frustrating thing is that there were no updates from the staff throughout the process. I think this is something I've come to take for granted on all the other airlines I've been on. Will I make it to my destination? No idea. Anyways, if you want reliability pick any other airline. If you like having to ask a lot of questions and get a lot of vague answers, Boutique is for you. It's very unfortunate. I really wanted to write a positive review!"

Pros: "Cost and schedule compliance"
Cons: "All was good. You need to have an "na" in your star ratings. "Entertainment " is not appropriate for a flight."

Pros: "Smooth landing and nice people"
Cons: "The set belt light never went off to get up and get a drink or snack"

Pros: "Awesome pilots great service, super nice people!"

Pros: "The price for this flight considering the convenience of everything compared to a typical commercial flight was amazing. I am very impressed with the service, and will absolutely try to find future flights on Boutique Air!"

Pros: "Boutique conducts business a little bit different from all the major airlines. Checking in and boarding is done very different. They arrange the seating based on the passengers weight. almost if you have chattered your own private jet. Very luxurious and comfortable. Although the plane is small, the takeoff and landing was very smooth. Don't hesitate do business with boutique."
Cons: "Nada"

Pros: "Great friendly pilots, smooth flight"

Cons: "The fact that the plane left almost 30 EARLY and the crew wouldn't let me board. Absolute garbage. It's most likely a waste of my time writing this as service was pass poor at best to begin with. I cannot believe this happened, them causing me to miss my flight. I had to sit in this tiny terminal for over five hours and wait for another flight, which was delayed mind you because, well, a crew member was missing. So we left 20 minutes late! This truly made this experience one of a kind, I will never forget to tell all my friends, family, coworkers and blast this all over social media to my contacts. As a disabled veteran, I was truly shocked and completely done with the day when the same crew member showed up so we could boars finally and tells me that I don't look like anything is wrong with me, after reading my wounded warrior project carry on bag. Thank you for the disrespect on top of the hippocracy on top of the worst travel experience ever and Southwest lost my military bags with my uniforms while enroute to a brother in arms funeral service. Thank you for showing how little customers, average Americans mean"

Pros: "I loved the customer service and helpfulness as I had never flown through this airline. It's a must do!"

Pros: "more snacks"
Cons: "small plane, was kind of tight"

Pros: "The thought of a smaller private plane"
Cons: "How dirty, uncomfortable and cold the plane itself was. The flippant attitude towards safety information was also surprising. There were a couple of people on the plane that didn't know what to expect, in regards to noise and turbulence, with such a small aircraft. Sharing that information in advance would have calmed the nerves of many on this flight. Also the last minute notice of having to check your bags, though the website states differently, and the amount of time spent on the tarmac just waiting, made me 30mins late for my business in LA."

Pros: "No waiting lines, no hustle, no herding like cattle. Everyone was personal and polite. Wonderful experience! I will fly Boutique every chance I get!"
Cons: "Smaller plane makes for more turbulence, but not bad."

Pros: "On time, easy check in, and friendly staff"

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "The hospitality of crew"
Cons: "The noise of the plane"

Pros: "What a fantastic surprise. Best flight ever and no hassle. Service is second to none!!! Husband loved it even more than I. Full size drinks and nuts, smooth flight all the way through, We will do this again and again. Thank you!"
Cons: "No downside at all"

Pros: "A different flying experience"
Cons: "There were 5 passengers on the flight, 2 checked in a bag for a total of 2 bags. My bag was lost. In reality on flight 438 Boutique Air lost/misplaced 50% of the passengers luggage. The staff is trying to get my bag on the next Boutique Air flight which does not arrive in Nashville until Sunday. I may be moved from Nashville on Sunday. The baggage needs to be on the next flight heading to Nashville regardless of the company."

Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Plane was small so it was scary whenever we hit turbulence."

Pros: "The pilot and copilot were very friendly and sweet"
Cons: "People were puking everywhere the flight was like a roller coaster"

Pros: "good staff from gate to gate makes up for any airport problems from being "off brand" e.g., gates not as clearly indicated, not on ARR/DEP boards. Nice seats, I could see headroom problems for those in the 6'3"+ range."

Pros: "The crew was informative, pleasant, and easy to speak to. Take-off and landing were both VERY SMOOTH for a small 8-passenger plane."
Cons: "We flew with a lot of turbulence so the flight was slightly delayed."

Pros: "Very nice crew and it was very pleasant to fly with these people."
Cons: "I think this is just startup glitches, but there was no notice of the airline not being in the main terminal. Luckily, I called the airline number and got information that it was in the general aviation terminal (SLC)."

Cons: "Unfortunately, the flight did not operate and I ended up driving 700 miles with a fellow stranded passenger. Too bad, because I was really looking forward to flying on a smaller plane for a change. Maybe next time..."

Cons: "Unfortunately, the flight did not operate and I ended up driving 700 miles with a fellow stranded passenger. Too bad, because I was really looking forward to flying on a smaller plane for a change. Maybe next time..."

Pros: "everything. it was like having a private jet."

Pros: "Excellent crew."
Cons: "Gate agents were a little snippy."

Pros: "I wouldn’t know t"
Cons: "To let me on the flight"

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

Pros: "Crew was fantastic. Seats are narrow in space, but more comfortable than other airlines."
Cons: "Drink and snack service, but captain was concerned about "bumps""

Pros: "Good flight, got home early."

Cons: "the food"

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

Cons: "Flight delay"

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

Pros: "They were awesome"
Cons: "Nothing I was at my best on the best airline and crew"

Cons: "5 hours late!!!!!! Delta sucks"

Pros: "At the airport things were quite, security was fast. Boarding was fast and smooth. I’ve flown with delta a lot and also a lot of others (cheaper ones) and I’m always happy when I get a delta flight things are always calmer and less crowded!"
Cons: "N/a"

Pros: "Crew was great as always. Friendly and professional"
Cons: "We had a delay that complicated our getting home but all ended up OK"

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

Pros: "Crew was amazing and super helpful."
Cons: "Just the fumes of fuel inside the cabin was nauseating. Never had similar issue with air travel before."

Pros: "First I don’t comment on these normally, but during our flight we had a medical emergency and the crew handled it with perfection. They kept a very calm atmosphere and handled passenger with great care and professionalism. I could not be more impressed."

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."

Pros: "Friendly crew and on time flight"
Cons: "N/A"

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: "Great services ce."

Pros: "The Gate Agents were excellent and very helpful with accommodating our family traveling with an infant and a six year old."
Cons: "The flight attendant saw that we were confused about the seat map and did not offer any assistance."

Pros: "Everything. Pilots and crew"

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: "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."

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."

Pros: "Love the new in-cabin wi-fi, USB charging station, and menu of in-flight entertainment and resources on the individual flatscreens."

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: "Free pretzels and drink"
Cons: "Not enough overhead space for everyone's carry-on bags so I sat with mine down by my feet which left me little foot space. Was a bit uncomfortable"

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."

Cons: "It was a great flight. We got there earlier then arrive time. Thank You"

Pros: "The complimentary entertainment was great, made the flight enjoyable."
Cons: "The con was the need for a connecting flight and the second plane didn't have the same perks."

Pros: "Free movies/TV is a great amenity. Overhead bins were full by the time I boarded, so I gate-checked my bag. The staff was helpful and accommodating, which made that process quick and easy."
Cons: "Boarding is chaos. There's got to be a more efficient way than zones."

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."

Cons: "The flight was delayed when the pilot's tablet failed and he had to run to operations to get another. Seemed odd. While this was going on they decided to fuel the plane. Seemed like an excuse because they didn't have their act together on the fueling. Tablets are pretty reliable, do they really rely upon an ipad to get us where we are going?"

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

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

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

Cons: "boarding, seating, entertainment"

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: "Sat on runway when we landed took forever to get to gate. Late on a non stop w good weather"

Pros: "It was acceptable."

Pros: "Getting to my destination"
Cons: "Having air conditioning on an aircraft on a hot summer day is critical. Especially on a 2 hours delay on the tarmac!"

Pros: "Width of the seat is nice"
Cons: "Boarding process is not great and delays while already boarded are terribly frustrating"

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

Cons: "Flight could have been on time"

Cons: "Snack options aren’t good."

Cons: "The guy who’s checking me in he’s very kind.he is so nice person."

Cons: "21/2 delay....no explanariin. But flight attendants did not show up until 9:15 and yet plane had been on the ground since 8:30. Seems poor planning on airline’s part"

Cons: "Seats were small"

Pros: "The crew was good"
Cons: "Paid $330.00 +/- for a one way ticket. Some how i messed up on the date and had it for 8/3/18 instead of 8/2/18. Had to pay an additional $500 + for the change. I understand that the fault didn't lie with AA, however, the rate for changing the ticket borders on the ridiculous. I have to travel quite a bit as of late for work, I am doing all i can to Avoid using American. There were others on the flight that paid for first class that didn't pay as much as me and i was stuck in boarding group 6. It really feels as though American is only in it for the dollars, not the customer service."

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"

Pros: "Crew was courteous Boarding was effortless thanks to the AA app"
Cons: "Multiple flight and boarding delays Aircraft needs cleaning/update"

Pros: "I took my girlfriend on her first airplane ride! The flight was bumpless from wheels to wheels. The Pilots did a fantastic job! Thank you so much for a remarkable first plane trip! THEN!!!! The have Buffalo Trace Bourbon! I mean.... what else do you need ?!"

Pros: "Availability of WiFi"
Cons: "Tightness of seats especially with so many people coughing."

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

Pros: "First class is always comfortable"
Cons: "Headline tells it all. First thing passenger did when he sat down was hand flight attendant a$5 bill, which she accepted she made sure he and the others in row one were served preboard refreshment. The rest of us not, as she was so engaged with the favored passenger. Not good!"

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: "IFE very good"
Cons: "No legroom"

Pros: "Excellent flight. No complaints!"

Pros: "Everything."
Cons: "No problems."

Pros: "Uncertain why there are 9 boarding groups, seems to be excessive/confusing."

Pros: "It was a short trip, LA to Albuquerque. Flight attendants were nice, plane was clean, and I was comfortable enough to sleep all 2 hours"

Pros: "I like the food."
Cons: "Japanese shows without eng subs."

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"

Cons: "Cramped seating, uncomfortable cabin temperature, very hard/jolting landing"

Pros: "Boarding process was smooth and fast"
Cons: "Do you think airline management sits around boardrooms to brainstorm ways to torture its passengers more? The seats and the leg room are ridiculous. It's gotten to much worse recently."

Cons: "Prices are high and changes are frequent on rates"

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

Pros: "Flight got cancelled"

Pros: "It he seats were very comfortable There was enough leg space Crew was excellent The timing was good"

Pros: "Friendly crew."

Pros: "THE SEATS WERE COMFORTABLE AND CREW AND VERY ATTENTIVE."

Cons: "Inattentive flight attendants, overhead space was not well managed. Cash only"

Cons: "I did not like how I requested a same day flight, was presented with a low fare, so I took it, and it was deceptively a different day months in the future. . . This is not a flight I feel I should have paid for, as I feel I was deceived"

Pros: "Chargers in the back of the seat for devices Friendly staff Nice quality airplanes"
Cons: "Paid for WiFi, and it was very choppy and slow. Took over 3-4 min, and several refreshes to send/receive an email."

Pros: "Comfy"
Cons: "Sat on tarmac for 1hr and 20 minutes since tower mix up and plane was bigger so confusion on seating. I feel stressed cause I will be missing a full day of work because of this delay and pretty pissed off. Would like some sort of compensation"

Pros: "Great seats."
Cons: "Customer service both over the phone and in person not very helpful to ensure connecting flights were made. Much better experience with Southwest in regards to coordinating delayed flights. AA could have done a much better job to ensure more flyers made thei connecting flights."

Cons: "Due to two flight delays, I traveled an additional 24 hours, on top of my 20 hour original flight. Albuquerque Airline staff were rude, dismissive, incompetent, and each individual I spoke with gave me wildly differing information. The two delays (leading to approximately 48 hours of travel) would have been stressful enough, but the callous, ignorant and unprofessional attitudes of American Airlines staff (and staff in general at Chicago O'Hare Airport) really disappointed me. This was even more striking compared with the professional service I received from British Airways (from whom I purchased the tickets). I was ashamed that my country could lag so far behind in terms of basic customer service and problem solving."

Cons: "Person next to me was talking across me"

Pros: "I liked my seat"
Cons: "There was a stewardess that was very mean and not accommodating when I asked for a mask"

Cons: "Timeliness"

Cons: "Fruit & cheese tray unavailable"

Cons: "Uncomfortable"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "When I spoke to the United person last week to confirm baggage and carry on requirements. 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"

Cons: "I choosed this very very expensive flight because it was so import to be home in CPH at 9.00 for an important meeting. My flight from Chicago was delayed and nothing was done by the pilots to arrive on time. Despite the delay, I managed to arrive on time to my Connecting flight to CPH - only to realize that I was moved to a later flight. Now I have spent 2.300 USD on a poor flight that do NOT bring me to my destination on time. I am a frequent flyer, and will do everything I can Avoiding United going forward. Never United again"

Pros: "Ease of finding gate"
Cons: "There were several cases of couple who purchased tickets together were separated on the plane & no one knew why they were arranged that way. No solution offered at counter."

Pros: "What did I like? Nothing. It was United Airlines, and it has been a long time since there was ANYTHING to like about United. Usually, the best one can hope for is that there is plenty to TOLERATE. Unfortunately, this trip did not rise to that standard."
Cons: "UA to Denver cancelled due to maint, issue. Re-booked thru LAX on Delta. Arrived 12 AM vs. planned 6 PM (w/ 7 AM meeting the next day). Delta is 6-block walk outdoors from United at LAX. TSA pre-check didn't show on the Delta ticket issued by United, leading to another hassle at Security."

Pros: "Great ticket price"
Cons: "No drinks, zero comfort, every seat is so close together, no free carryonbag and the price to bring a carry on is high"

Pros: "I was thirsty and reluctantly agreed to purchase some water. I asked the attendant if she had andy diet drinks and she said she didn't and then I said oh well I guess I will have to get some water. She gave me a cup of water for free.."
Cons: "I NEVER ONCE saw that I needed to pay for our luggage when I bought the tickets and therefore when I checked in, I had to pay $38 per suitcase. THAT IS TERRIBLE! Also, I had a terrible time checking in and when I purchased my seats, the price went up $10 a seat. I will fly Frontier OJNLY when I HAVE to. I will NEVER make it my first choice."

Cons: "very uncomfortable seat bottoms"

Cons: "Uncomfortable seating. No free snacks, drinks, or entertainment. Very bumpy rides on all 4 flights. Had to pay for carry-ons."

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: "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."

Pros: "The price was good. Can't beat that for sure. Round trip for two less than 600.00"
Cons: "The landing felt like we fell out of the sky, the crew weren't really all that friendly and I found a used tampon in my magazine holder. The drinks weren't cheap and there wasn't really any real understanding of what the safety instructor was saying."

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

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: "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."

Pros: "They said they had a good flight"

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."

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "everything"

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