Cons: "The plane was 20 minutes late getting to the gate. Then we sat on the runway for over 30 minutes, while we waited in line for 30 other planes to take off. After a long day and a flight from Venice Italy, it was a bit disappointing to have this sort of delay."

AA did page me and had a representative (I think his name was Brian) waiting for me to help me get to my connection. He gave me a bright red/orange tag. I still hit some barriers. I was stopped in security and my carry on was put aside to be searched. It sat and sat . I explained to the man I had to go. He said he was working alone, so I had to wait. I was ready to leave it and just run to catch the flight, but the security man said I wasn't allowed to do that. He finally called someone else to search my bag (nothing found) I did make it...barely!"

Pros: "everything"
Cons: "nono"

Pros: "What mede this trip so poor was that the agent at the desk informed me that as I was boarding the plane my carry on suitcase had to be checked due to limited space in the overhead bins. This is the same carry on that I have stored in overheads on literally over 100 flights including a United flight 4 days earlier. I was the approximately the fith passenger to board in group 3 and after I let her check my bag I walked on to the plane to see not only was it only one quarter full of passengers, most of the overhead bins were completely empty. So I had to go to baggage claim to get my checked bag after we landed which took almost 40 minutes. Very frustrating!"
Cons: "See above!"

Pros: "Nothing"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything. My booking confirmation was with United Airlines only to get to the airport to find that they had subcontracted the flight to a budget airline. Eurowings. The food very substandard. If you were on a basic ticket, you were only entitled to water and no food. So people are travelling on long haul flights without being offered anything as standard. Passengers on these tickets were not aware that they would not be served.any food which is probably unethical. They offer to sell you food if on a basic ticket"

Pros: "Great job."

Pros: "Fantastic"
Cons: "Super"

Pros: "Crew was efficient and personable."
Cons: "Two and a half hour delay leaving EWR because aircraft was late from prior destination. UAL said FAA limited flights coming in due to weather. Although scattered light rain, no seemingly unusual weather at EWR. No special reward once on the flight to make up for that delay (I.e. still charged for snacks and alcoholic drinks). Delay was very frustrating. Also, not a fan of selections on United WiFi entertainment - very limited."

Cons: "Significant delay-no weather issues, didn't make sense."

Cons: "No drink service And no free tv"

Pros: "Smooth boarding process."
Cons: "The WiFi wasn’t working."

Cons: "I was in business class and was terrible The airplane too old , so expensive for that? Can’t believe it..."

Pros: "Staff was on point!!! Awesome"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Equipment. Very old. Seating inconvenient cand cramp."

Pros: "I was able to change my seat since mine was all the way in the back. very happy about that."

Pros: "Pilot was very communicative and reponsive to our needs.,"
Cons: "Flight attendant was very irritable and rude. Screaming baby on most of the flight. There was no attempt to help by flight attendants. Plane warm."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "I didn’t like that the plane took off before the takeoff time and thus I missed my flight. No explanation. No apologies. This was also the last flight out to NOLA and you would think they would take that into consideration. Nope."

Pros: "The plane window seat"

Pros: "Nonstop"

Pros: "The two people that helped."
Cons: "That United had NO remorse for our inconvenience and offered NO compensations."

Pros: "Movie selection!"

Cons: "Basic economy not aloud a carry on bag. Charged for a checked bag. The TV programming was an extra charge as well as the drinks."

Cons: "The plane being overbooked, having to check my carry on bag. Making me late to my event having to wait at the carousel."

Cons: "My flight was delayed for about an hour, plane was outdated"

Pros: "On time"

Pros: "..."
Cons: "Never happened"

Pros: "Fast loading and effect attendant"

Pros: "Staff were lovely"

Pros: "Crew was excellent. Beyond making sure we were comfortable."

Cons: "No usb hookup. No food"

Pros: "On time and direct"

Pros: "The people at the gate and on the plane were nice. But I flew United Airlines not Lufthansa."
Cons: "Really sad that you have to pay extra money to watch the monitors on the back of the headrest for a 2.5 trip. That's crappy. And then there is a point when you're out of the Directv Range. We're paying more for flights and then they have flight waitresses trying to monetize the time you're in the air. And when I was checking in in Berlin this guy was asking me a ton of questions, but didn't ask the next 5 people any questions. When I stared at him he started asking others questions. It's really none of your business why I'm going somewhere or what I'm doing. These terrorist attacks are giving people authority they have no business having."

Cons: "Cancelled and rebooked on a different airline with a long layover."

Cons: "Very stressful experience at counter check in. Airline representative didn't know the difference between the expiry date of a visa and that of my passport.. he just ran away with the passport to check and didn't get convinced and it took him long to return, with me just waiting and knowing nothing about where he went. Only the passport needs to be valid for three months after returning from the trip. Not the visa. He should know that. I got my boarding pass at the end, and he didn't apologize for the inconvenience or anything."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "2-3 hour delay kept delaying, snack was nasty, drink yeah right it was a sip. They take a can and split it between four people. So unorganized and rude."

Pros: "Flight was cheap! Weekend was fun!"

Pros: "Dependable, fast, clean"

Pros: "Flight took off promptly & landed early"
Cons: "Paid a lot more than I did for the same flight via delta with half the amenities. Crew not particularly friendly"

Cons: "Plane was not up to par with other current planes. Pricing was high for not having more leg space, TV's which should be a standard by now, and free liquor/wine on international flights! United is truly a disappointment and I may not be flying with them anymore if I had a choice"

Pros: "We had excellent service on the plane and the new snacks that are handed out was a welcomed addition."
Cons: "TSA held a planned work action to have workers call in sick and my flight left 30 minutes late as at departure time we were missing over 20 passengers who hadn't gotten through TSA yet."

Pros: "flight was mercifully short ..."
Cons: "brand new plane with impossible seating dimensions for any normal humans, even at the upgraded price; crew increasingly more concerned with labor relations and their own dramas than with passengers comfort or experience (perhaps understandable, given management screws put to them, but still unprofessional)."

Pros: "On time!"
Cons: "No complaints"

Cons: "The inside of the plane felt 50 years old. Completely uncomfortable."

Cons: "Free wifi access"

Pros: "Punctuality"
Cons: "Ride was quite bumpy Couldn't get an aisle seat."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Lies about when we would leave. Next time just be honest about the fact that we didn't have a pilot instead of stringing us along for 9 hours."

Pros: "No issues. Quick and painless."

Pros: "Tight seating funky food"

Pros: "The crew was amazing"

Pros: "On time reliable."

Cons: "Frontier is always great! Getting you where ya need to go with zero hang ups, perfect airline! Price is always right as well!!!"

Pros: "Prompt, professional, and smooth landing. Very friendly staff"

Cons: "Fix the plane before it’s scheduled to take off"

Cons: "Flight was cancelled, they made us wait at the airport for five hours, kept delaying thirty minutes at a time. Didn't offer another flight out until three days later"

Pros: "The crew and the clouds"
Cons: "Send out emails reminding passages to shower (that means washing your hair and ass), wear deodorant, and brush their teeth."

Pros: "Yes!"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Pilots were great. Nice flight experience."
Cons: "Delayed boarding - waiting for paperwork. Annoying"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everthing"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Worst airline ever"

Pros: "The price but after today, I’m going back to “you get what you pay for.”"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 21/2 hours. Was not told ahead of time. We boarded even later then we sat on the tarmac for an hour and a half and we were told that we were #12 in line. An hour later we were told that we were now #15!! Finally off the ground. Flight attendant had a very annoying voice but what made it worse how he kept asking for money because of everyone purchasing. Yes I know but some how on other flights you don’t hear about the money, this was in your face"

Pros: "Empty seats"
Cons: "Charging for snacks and drinks"

Cons: "The extra add fees with everything. Also no complimentary beverage or snack"

Cons: "Water wasn't free"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Service, didn’t take off or land in time, no explanations"

Pros: "the crew is nice"
Cons: "waiting 2hours for board, and wait again after landing"

Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Good flight for price"

Pros: "Arriving early"
Cons: "Having to pay for basics"

Pros: "baggage check-in speedy and efficient, rapid plane boarding and plane left the gate on schedule"
Cons: "A special circle in Dante's Hell should be reserved for the Frontier executives who approved the seat design. The non-reclining seat backs are fairly comfortable, but the seat bottoms appear to have about 1/4 inch of foam padding over a hard shell. Did anybody actually test these things out by sitting in them for over 10 minutes?"

Cons: "Small table trays & uncomfortable seats. You get what you pay for."

Pros: "Flight was 3 hours delayed. When we arrived at the airport they said it would be delayed by 2 hours. Then right before our new boarding time they delayed it another hour. I wish we would have had some advance notice so we weren't stuck waiting at the airport for 3 hours."
Cons: "Frontier seats are extremely uncomfortable (I would say the worst of any airline) and they charge for carry on luggage and drinks."

Cons: "MY LUGGAGE WAS LOST!!!"

Pros: "I had an average flight. No major issues. My main objective as a direct fight which only this flight offered. $40 checked bag fee. Not aware of any fee for carry-one but guess I need to check my recipets...."

Pros: "NOTHING!!! Worse customer service I've ever experienced. 2 canceled flights and no email notification for either. Hell in one instance they counter never opened to explain the issues. NEVER AGAIN!"

Cons: "I am so upset that I was charged after she put our bag and it fit in spot for baggage. This is just wrong"

Cons: "."

Pros: "Flight was fine. Seats were cramped but no worse than any other airline."
Cons: "When we landed, I did not get to baggage claim in a timely fashion. Frontier took our luggage and locked it up. We were told to go to the Frontier ticket counter to get our luggage. When we arrived all the frontier employees were gone for the day and no one at the airport could retrieve it. We had to wait several hours for someone to come and get our luggage. This was a terrible inconvenience. I have never experienced anything like this by any other airline. I have no idea why they did not just leave it off to the side (like every other airline does)."

Pros: "Arriving"
Cons: "Constant waiting and delays and ridiculous fees. Would be better to charge more instead of deceptive charges."

Pros: "Safety instructions worth the funny copy was great."

Cons: "Five hours late, HORRIBLE representatives And"

Cons: "Fronter seems to be delayed often"

Cons: "The plane departed 45 minutes behind schedule. When we arrived, 20 people or so did not receive their luggage. Frontier representatives were nowhere to be found. Finally someone came and herded us upstairs, gave us no information about our luggage, and had us form a line to file a claim. Frontier staff was utterly unapologetic and had no sense of urgency. I still don't know where my bag is. The plane was supposed to land at 12:45, and I left the airport at 3:30 and missed an important work meeting."

Pros: "The staff and pilots were great!"
Cons: "The seat I spent extra for."

Pros: "The friendliness of the flight attendants, as well as the help I received at the check-In desk."
Cons: "The comfort of the seats, I'm 6-4" the room available is tiny for me."

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Size of seats"

Pros: "I can tell you what I didn't like. My seat and bags cost more than the flight itself. So no I did not have a good experience and I will never fly Spirit again"

Pros: "Caring crew! The flight was on time and we even arrived slotted early"
Cons: "We were not offered a free cup of water. Even though it was a short flight it would have been appreciated"

Cons: "O couldn't take the flight because the cost of my luggage exceeded the costed my fight & was not allowed to cancel for refund of any kind."

Pros: "The crew was friendly and humorous"
Cons: "Flight attendants made too many unnecessary reminders throughout the flight about buckling seat belts and staying seated when the seatbelt sign is illuminated. It felt like every 5 minutes they were making an announcement making it impossible to get any rest. Passengers were roundly and acted like they had never been on a plane before. Maybe they hadn't and just didn't know any better. But it made the flight unpleasant."

Cons: "the pilot almost crashed the plane"

Pros: "The flight attending Andrew was very rude. Rude to me and many others. I felt it was the worst experience ive had on a flight, i fly often."

Cons: "Even had to pay for ONE carry on. Ridiculous. Everything was a charge, even selecting a spot to sit. Not what I expected."

Cons: "See above"

Pros: "A mediocre experience that charged me for every interaction with the airline, including a can of club soda. An obnoxious business model."

Pros: "Great fare.awesome staff.had to wait to load bags.but will fly again"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "That they did not have enough people to process all the flights " we didn't expect all of you to show up" Allowed four other flights to cut in line to make their flight but when it came to new Orleans had 100 of us not board. 4 hours later, 5 lines and lying to us about the plane turning around They Told us the next flight was 4 days later... not even connections options. At first they did not want to give us refunds either until they called security on one irate small blonde lady and security, afraid of a riot I think, told the airline they needed to resolve the issue."

Pros: "On time bag claim fast comfortable seat for short flight"
Cons: "Baggage drop off line at 5am ridiculous"
