Pros: "Crew efficient, polite, & communicative. Array of tv channels allowed me to watch football while our departure was delayed."
Cons: "Mechanical problems delayed our departure."

Pros: "Boarded early, plenty of leg room, delicious in-flight free beverages & snacks, arrived at DCA 27 min early. My wife had a panic attack and the two stewardesses took great care of her and calmed her down. Despite my wife's condition, the stewardesses took great care of the rest of the passengers, too. We've flown JetBlue to Puerto Rico and loved the service. My adult son is a fan of JetBlue."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "The fly-fi worked very well."
Cons: "The "tv" didn't work - One of the things I like about Jet Blue"

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Direct flight"

Cons: "The delay"

Pros: "Landed much earlier than expected!"

Pros: "The pilot made up time after taking off late, the coffe and popcorn was good"
Cons: "The cabin crew seemed to do nothing but try and sell you stuff from blankets, credit cards, lunch boxes they spent a lot of the flight just trying to get you to buy stuff. When we landed we landed so fast the pilot had to brake very hard that life jackets came out of the pockets under the seats."

Pros: "Flight was pretty seamless, lots of room."
Cons: "Nothing bad to say"

Pros: "Loved the live TV and spacious room between seats."
Cons: "I didn’t like the weather delay but that’s not JetBlue’s fault."

Pros: "On time. Very organized. Great price."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They cancel the flight. And they say they trying to help ppl to evacuate Florida"

Pros: "The staff were sweet and knowledgeable."
Cons: "N/A"

Cons: "Due to hurricane Irma, people are flooding out of Florida like rats on a sinking ship. So, the security checkpoint is an absolute mess. Meanwhile, the trains at MCO are malfunctioning badly as they chaotically try to replace them. The boarding agent acknowledged these issues as she explained to me and 5 other people that we couldn't get on the plane that wasn't scheduled to leave for 12 more minutes. Finally, thank God, a supervisor arrived and called the captain of the plane who subsequently let us board. Completely unnecessary situation. Very disappointed."

Pros: "The crew smiled and helped me with things I need patiently. The pilot also greeted us on the way out."
Cons: "Weren't a lot of healthier snack choices other than the colorful sweet potato chips. I tried Skeex but it wasn't good. I suggest peanuts/nuts, raisins or something else that are better for our health. The chocolate chip cookie is a keeper though! Thank you."

Pros: "Comfort Price"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Was great on time, friendly staff and snacks"

Pros: "JetBlue is usually great and this flight was no exception. I always check-in from home and love how easy they make it. I also sign up for the sms updates and they communicate well that way."
Cons: "But.... being delayed three times on a flight where I was literally jumping off the plane and going straight to a viewing... Not great. At least they had a bar in front of the gate so I could try to relax with ridiculously overpriced drinks. I notice they have a bar at the DCA to FLL gate in DC too. Nice work, JetBlue. Mostly..."

Pros: "Clean restroom"
Cons: "Polite flight attendant"

Pros: "first of all, the flight attendants were SO friendly, especially compared to United and American Airlines. and FREE WIFI! oh and real snacks not shitty snack mix that United gives. OH and the boarding process! thank you for COMMON SENSE, board the back of the plane first!!!! overall i am very happy with the experience. the economy seats gave as much leg room as the economy plus on United. as you can tell I hate united and have been flying with them a long time."
Cons: "the plane i was on was a little older model but it really wasn't bad plus there was still free wifi so no complaints. only plus i could say for improvement would be power between seats, even if it's just a USB port :)"

Pros: "Landed exactly on time!"
Cons: "TV's didn't work at all. Hot tea tasted terrible, were you using Boston Harbor water?"

Pros: "Direct TV...during the entire flight!! I usually fly SW because of the no baggage fee. On this particular trip, I was able to send my bags w/ my sister b/c she drove to Orlando and back to VA."
Cons: "It would be nice if JB included 1 checked bag w/o a fee. However, I did enjoy the fact that I had DirectTV to watch and it wasn't a really big plane. I liked the aisle and window seat options."

Cons: "I came 40min prior to my flight and found out that it was too late to check in my bag. I rescheduled my flight for $50 fee to make sure I get in in time for my meeting. When I went inside, I found out that my original flight got delayed and was leaving only 15min earlier than my new flight, which then got delayed for another 45min...disaster. Essentially, I paid extra $50 for nothing. In fact, I would have been on my original flight and gotten to my meeting in time had they not had you are on your own attittude toward customers."

Pros: "We had terrible delays and very little transparency in regards to what was going on with the flight. We were stuff on TARMAC without warning for much longer than expected. Overall it took me longer to get from Boston to DC than it took me to get from Spain to Boston. Unacceptable."

Pros: "more leg space liked loading from the back to the front of the plane."
Cons: "late departure."

Pros: "The plane arrived safely in DC."
Cons: "I didn't like that the flight was delayed but it's understandable."

Pros: "The entertainment aboard"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 45 min,Weather was fine:("

Pros: "Free in flight wifi is great. Crews are very friendl"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 3.5 hours. JetBlue did provide $75 voucher but a delay of this magnitude was a major inconvenience. JetBlue poorly communicated the situation."

Cons: "I think JetBlue is starting to slip. Our flight was first delayed an more than an hour due to weather. That is understandable. But, then, after we boarded, we continued to sit at the gate. After a half hour or more, the pilot finally informed us that there were problems with the plane's communications system. They called maintenance. After another half hour or more, we were told we had to get off the plane so they could restart the entire plane. After an hour or so at the gate, we were told the problem had been fixed and we could reboard. We were nearly 5 hours late, much of it due to a maintenance problem. This is the second time this month that I've endured substantial delays on JetBlue due to maintenance problems."

Pros: "Snacks are always great."
Cons: "Service could've been a little bit better. Wasn't terrible, just wasn't legendary."

Pros: "JetBlue has leg room appropriate for adult humans. AA and UA imprison you in spaces so small you suffer actual damage to your body."

Cons: "Delay."

Cons: "There was a maintenance delay that lasted 5 hours and we couldn't change flights because we had a checked bag"

Pros: "Wheelchair service and an offer to put me closer. To the front ."

Pros: "Fast boarding, excellent costumer service."

Pros: "Easy boarding. Fast. On time or even early arrival. No hassle"
Cons: "No movies on less than a two hour flight. Only options for drinks were coffee water and OJ. Was hoping for a tea"

Pros: "I had to change my return flight from JAX (which was handling fairly easily) due to a family funeral. We upgraded our seats to the bulkhead (row 1) and while the leg room was OK, it wasn't exactly what I expected. We did get early boarding. The pilot spoke to us clearly and explained the delay, etc. (due to weather)."
Cons: "The Internet was barely working (and I count on that during a flight). The sound was terrible for the video/audio (using my own headphones). My biggest issue was that my boarding pass on the app was incorrect -- I changed my flight from May 17 to May 22 but the boarding pass still said may 17, so I had to get a paper pass from the ticket counter. This was after I called JetBlue, and they supposedly fixed the problem. The flight was extremely bumpy, the entire way. All this after a 1 hour delay for the flight. Thankfully, we had no connections."

Pros: "Excellent service throughout."

Cons: "I was in row 4 and overhead storage was full before I boarded so I had to gate check my bag. This was unfortunate."

Pros: "The plane was clean, the pilots did a great job in iffy weather. Jet Blue is my go to for this route—they seem to be trying more than some competitors."
Cons: "Seats are too small to be comfortable, and I'm an average sized guy. The overhead compartments are a joke when it comes to boarding."

Pros: "On time. Courteous and friendly crew."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Loved the movie/TV screen"

Pros: "$100 credit from Jetblue to all passengers on this fiasco."
Cons: "Extra long delay with little information, getting home at 2am instead of 10pm, entertainment system not working on plane."

Cons: "Entertainment screens should be in place in the seat, not wifi entertainment"

Pros: "I like the tablet holder in the seat back"

Cons: "Flight is always packed to capacity and seats are small. Uncomfortable. On the good side, we had a new plane with leather-like seats."

Pros: "Entertainment was okay."
Cons: "Fight was late taking off. Sat on tarmac for almost an hour upon landing. Crew was unprofessional and did not keep the passengers updated on what was happening. Very disappointing."

Pros: "Landing while raining the pilots did a great job"
Cons: "faster boarding, going out of the plane, the internet on plane was included but didn’t work"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The explanation for why the flight experienced so many delays wasn't given. The flight was clearly overbooked and the organization of the crew while boarding the plane was poor."

Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "The crew, the flight attendant was very rude"

Cons: "Delayed 2+ hours because the crew didn’t arrive on time. Horrible take off and landing. Additionally, baggage claim in DCA is ridiculously long."

Pros: "Great wifi. Nice comfortable seating. Great entertainment selection"

Pros: "The flight was easy, and we arrived thirty minutes ahead of schedule!"

Pros: "I landed safely"

Cons: "I am very disappointed with my flight this morning on American Airlines 1533. The crew did an excellent job. The issue, however, is the media AA chose to play at 8:30am. The NBC show that was playing on every overhead TV on the flight featured a woman being sexually assaulted by a man, someone being bludgeoned with a piece a wood until they lay unconscience in a pool of blood, and woman with a gun to her head as she’s being yelled at by multiple men. I was flying with my three year old son. Why on earth is it necessary to show this tv show (or any show that has mature/adult ratings) on a flight that is obviously going to have audiences of all ages? Our flight had a dozen or so children and when you show prime time trash on the overhead TVs, it’s really tough to keep kids from looking forward the entire length of the 2 hour flight so they don’t watch a woman being raped, a man being beaten, or someone being held at gunpoint. I am traveling on behalf of the US government so I didn’t have to pay for my ticket. I did, however, pay for my 3 year old son to accompany me on the flight and I am wholly unsatisfied with the AA team responsible for choosing in-flight ‘entertainment.’ I’m not sure if NBC pays AA to feature their shows or AA has to pay NBC for the pleasure of featuring their trash but either way, what in the world are you guys thinking?"

Pros: "Liked the plane which looks new and the entreteinment was good too"
Cons: "Didn’t like the crew wasn’t nice and the snacks are always terrible"

Cons: "The food was cold and and had no taste."

Pros: "New plane, 737-Max. More fuel efficient, quieter, more in-cabin luggage storage."
Cons: "Seats don’t decline as much."

Cons: "At 6'1" the seats are too small and close together."

Pros: "Tv and power outlets"
Cons: "This one attendant didn't get her name but was very cold to me"

Cons: "I am missing two items that I had in my checked bag and my clothes and belongings were all messy as if it had been gone through. I am very upset that these items were likely taken by whoever went through my bag."

Pros: "I did not die"
Cons: "planes were old, they lost my checked bags, the seats did not recline on a 5 hours flight, the movie was the same for everyone on the plane, food was a disgrace, seats were so small I was pretty much bitting my knees the whole trip. Overall, I am ever flying with American Airlines or Latam ever again."

Pros: "I like AA overall, better than United for sure. I've been flying with AA since forever."
Cons: "Flight attendants arrived late, delayed the passengers. No blanket for main cabin when asked, my parents are old and they were really cold. Harsh landing but that's a give for DCA anyway."

Pros: "the flight was on time"
Cons: "the seats are too close together. I understand the desire to maximize quantity; I do however think that AA has gone too far. Leg room is necessary, not a luxury. The cost of the ticket should include leg room."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Cons: "It took too long for luggage to be delivered. The luggage carousel broke and luggage was switched to a new carousel. A flight attendant made a big push for the American credit card. It was annoying."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Plane literally falling apart. Delayed 4 hrs on board before the flight was cancelled altogether. Told it happens ALL the time. We got 2 hrs of sleep at a hotel about 40' away from the airport. Lousy job! Missed a wedding."

Pros: "The flight was late octavius"

Cons: "Not once but twice we boarded, sat on the plane for an hour and then were asked to deplane due to mechanical issues. It's understandable for one plane to have problems, but absurd to have issues again with the second plane. After all this, our flight was delayed until the early hours of the morning, leaving many passengers to sleep in the airport. It was uncomfortable, disappointing, frustrating, and the crew seemed very unsympathetic."

Pros: "The flight was cancelled on the runway on October 30, 2016. At times, someone within the ranks of this company needs to understand the experience and financial position of the average passenger. $12.00 voucher for dinner and breakfast in Panama city Panama is an example of being disconnected from the reality of that experience."

Cons: "Flight from Miami last night was delayed 3.5 hours (which was a 9:30pm departure to 12:30am departure) There was horrible weather that prevented the Flight captain to arrive on time for our flight. (he was en route from NYC to MIA). But instead of providing accommodations, the times changed and then they boarded us on the plane where we proceeded to wait almost an hour on the plane before take off. Arrived at DCA at 3 am....not a goo start to a work week."

Pros: "The options you have to pick from"
Cons: "The pop ups"

Pros: "Overall experience was great. I prefer American to other Airlines. I love how there are several flights daily between these two destinations with low fares."

Pros: "There were free movies and screen for each seat. It seemed like a new plane. Thank you"

Pros: "Delayed boarding due to mechanical issues"
Cons: "Air attendants were not personal able when boarding and exiting"

Pros: "todo me gusto"

Pros: "Norhing"
Cons: "Entertainment system down, no food, disorganized boarding, crew attitude not very good"

Cons: "Food choices are pretzels or crackers."

Cons: "They made us change gates 20 minutes before boarding. Crew was late because they were coming from another flight. Lost my baggage and when you call customer service, their system is either not working or you are on hold for ever."

Cons: "They cancelled the flight and give another one to Boston and then to washigton I was 13 hours late"

Pros: "Never on time...NEVER!"
Cons: "Getting out of the plane."

Cons: "No entertainment, no food."

Pros: "Bien servicio al cliente incluso el piloto muy atento a mis necesidades y muy formal y efectivo"

Pros: "Dc to Miami flight: The replacement crew - they were tired as they had to come on duty at last minute but were very pleasant in their interaction with travelers."
Cons: "DC - Miami flight delayed by at least 2 hours because (a) our crew had gone with an earlier flight. How does that happen?!! (b) We had to wait some more when we had boarded because the plane needed to be refueled. Couldn't someone already at the airport have checked the plane so that the replacement crew found the plane ready to take-off?"

Pros: "Almost nothing"
Cons: "The food, aircraft, video entertainment system.....all"

Pros: "Business cabin crew was very nice which is becoming something very rare at American. They did all they could to please us."
Cons: "This was a late flight and although the crew was very nice. The plane had no food. Yes we had a short layover and could not eat. We really expected to have a warm meal served on the plane and we were flying business. American always falls short. This is why the less expensive airlines are kicking their butt."

Pros: "Uneventful flight"
Cons: "It was the same crew from my previous flight from San Juan to Miami. They were not nice before and they were not nice on the second flight. It was a long day for us too."

Pros: "The flight attendant was awesome. If all flight attendants were like her I would always fly in AA."

Pros: "On Time."
Cons: "Old Plane. No entertainment. It was terrible."

Cons: "Only a cabin screen for entertainment (no back-of-seat screens.) Overhead storage was very limited (bags had to go in sideways to fit vs. wheels-first on most other planes."

Pros: "New configuration in first class."
Cons: "Where's the wifi? The slope in front of my seat in first class. It was hard to store bags under the seat."

Pros: "Flights for entire trip were on time - which is a first. Crews generally friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Not enough space. Every time I fly American I feel like I am stuck in a sardine can so I avoid this airline unless there is no acceptable choice."

Cons: "Well, everyone know about seating in steerage... I mean coach."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Crew was very nice"
Cons: "They could’ve offered free snacks instead of only offering items for purchase."

Pros: "I really liked the entertainment on board. Made the flight go by so fast."
Cons: "Better snacks"

Pros: "Better leg space than United flights."
Cons: "Food."

Pros: "Good smooth flight"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "I was separated from my 4 year old and 7 year old children as well as our husband. We bought our tickets together but we're out on 4 different rows. I asked flight attendant for help and she was rude. She talked to my husband who was further in the back and came back and told everyone it was ok for my kids to not be with their parents because my husband said it was ok. It was not ok, it was awful. After I started crying someone finally traded spots. But I didn't like that my husband's wishes over Road mine, it was misogynistic and she was a woman, a very condescending women."
Cons: "That our family was separated. That the female flight attendant talked down to me in a misogynistic way"

Pros: "Economy class is super cramped. One of the flight attendants was unpleasant."

Pros: "flight was delaye and I almost missed my flight from Dulles to munich"

Pros: "Extra legroom"
Cons: "No free entertainment options"

Pros: "Arrived early."
Cons: "Cabin crew were a little bit edgy. Not as pleasant as others on similar route."

Cons: "Gate attendant accused me of trying to get "free extra baggage" when I simply asked whether there would be gate-checking on this particular flight."

Pros: "Very nice crew"
Cons: "Audio jack did not work and no one bothered..."

Pros: "Seating adequate for short haul flight for standard economy seating."
Cons: "Lack of overhead bins even for Group 5 boarders. Boarding area is crowded because of the number gates serviced at this particular terminal."

Pros: "Crew was calm"
Cons: "timing, plane was dirty, wifi was faulty, got hurt because of broken parts near the leg. Cabin had a smoky smell and water leaking from restroom ceiling.Worst of all, I had to land on the runway at Dulles Airport."

Pros: "Efficient"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Getting to distination early."
Cons: "United customer service is cold."

Pros: "Flight was very good and service excellent. Thanks!"
Cons: "Slept like a baby."

Pros: "Kevin at Boarding (ATL-T13) was great! Other passengers were also! Had own entertainment did not use however like the app availability"
Cons: "Quiet flight at 6am except for one loud flight attendant (UN-6098) and no beverages :( Take off was slightly delayed causing connecting flight a mere minutes from making, running to gate like a movie."

Pros: "Seats were comfortable and sufficient leg room. One star rating on food and entertainment should be n/a since I didn't use these services."
Cons: "Boarding area was too small for gates being serviced."

Pros: "Comfy and we always fly united. Great experience"
Cons: "On the way back we had turbulence but that isn't anyone's fault."

Pros: "Easy check in and boarding, on time departure and arrival"
Cons: "Paid for wifi but it was difficult to get much done because pages loaded so slowly. One crew member was rude to a couple of passengers but other crew were very friendly"

Pros: "Quick flight, good service"
Cons: "Delay on return flight."

Cons: "Delays no good..."

Pros: "The trip TO the United States was bearable."
Cons: "This flight was a complete disaster. I ended up b=on a different flight to Newark, as my flight to Chicago got canceled. Then that fight was unable to land, so I spent hours in baltimore, and missed my connecting flight to Brussels. By the time I finally arrived, 4 hours late, to Newark, I had to spend 2 hours in a line to get re-book, for a flight the next night. I was compensated for all this mess with a $10 food voucher, and had to get a cab from the airport to the closest and cheapest hotel. My flight to Brussels was uneventful, save one rude flight attendant, and I got to school a day late."

Pros: "There was plenty of room because the flight was less than half full. There was a very friendly and helpful female flight attendant with an Asian ethnic background."
Cons: "It was impossible to check in online because I have a U.S. Green Card. Something should be done to fix this. It shouldn't be too difficult. There was a gray-haired male flight attendant who was extremely negative and unfriendly. Perhaps (I hope) he was really a security guard. But if he is going to serve people, he has to understand the concept of service."

Cons: "Noting"

Pros: "Friendly staff, good air craft, on time."
Cons: "Wifi and tech issues."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Wasn't offered a snack. Was in the BR whe they were handed out."

Pros: "Everything went to well."
Cons: "Couldn't be more better."

Cons: "I did not like the idea of having passengers wait so long to board the plane. I already had a stressful day before arriving the airport and did not need any more delays."

Pros: "I liked nothing"
Cons: "I didn't like everything. All my United flight were delayed, the international was cancelled after waiting for 7 hours of delays."

Pros: "My other passengers in First Class. Your crew was also very kind and well mannered."
Cons: "I spent over 150 for an upgrade for a red eye for a flight I already spent over 500. Your crew lacked attention in service and one specific crew member (male) woke me up twice due to the loudness of his voice. Disappointed in the quality for the amount spent."

Pros: "Seats were comfy, and the snack (caramel-filled waffle cookie) was a nice little treat."
Cons: "I didn't know to download the United entertainment app in advance. Once I found out at boarding, it was too late."

Pros: "It's funny that they try to sell you the entertainment .nobody buys it, nobody."

Pros: "Entertainment options were great, and the food was decent."
Cons: "The seat were really uncomfortable."

Pros: "Curtesy of staff"
Cons: "No seat reclining at all. Feeling very stiff by the end of the fight."

Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "My bags were tagged to Dakar but my final destination was Conakry. I was told my United that South African airlines doesn't have a "luggage contract" with ASky so my bags could not be tagged to my final destination. This is bizarre because Kayak didn't inform me of this when I bought my ticket otherwise I would never have bought that flight."

Cons: "Very rude crew."

Cons: "Went like clockwork."

Pros: "Flight was on time and crew was pleasant and professional."
Cons: "Snack and drink selection was poor."

Cons: "My 3rd old was very hungry and I reached out to cabin staff for any kind of food for purchase, they turned me down saying I need to wait for another hour till the dinner time. Did not provide any help there."

Pros: "The plane was exceptionally nice,"
Cons: "Although I purchased my ticket more than four months prior, due to some complication or miscommunication between SAS and US Air, my seat had been filled and someone had to be "bought off the plane" with a voucher and better seat. If someone wouldn't have taken the offer, I would have missed all of my flight waiting on a new connection."

Pros: "The upgrade to economy plus was great. The leg room was very spacious and the little snack mix was amazingly tasty."
Cons: "The crew was nowhere to be found and the flight had to be delayed for over and hour before they were able to arrive and get ready to fly. Apparently they had arrived late the previous night from amother flight and had to take the required rest hours. Someone should have been aware of that and assigned a different crew to fly the early morning shift. To make that flight I like othe customers had to leave my house by 3am. The only reason anyone in their right mind takes a flight that early is because they have a burning need to get somewhere early. The whole purpose was lost for me since I ended up missing an early morning appointment at the Capitol. Very disappointed."

Pros: "Movies"
Cons: "everything else"

Cons: "Small glasses of water were offered very infrequently. Needed much much more"

Pros: "On time"

Pros: "On time; uneventful flight. Perfect!"
Cons: "Instead of pretzels they handed out ranch flavored items; I have food allergies to seasonings. I prefer just plain pretzels"

Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "We didn't have any headphones for the seat back entertainment; attendant went down one isle handing them out, but not ours (not sure why were were left out, had to flag someone down to get some)."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I didn't like how my flight was cancelled only MINUTES prior to boarding time. I signed up for text alerts and received NONE about the trip cancellation. I had to rebook my flight for the next day meaning I slept at the airport. US airways had to change my flight to using Delta airlines since that was the soonest upcoming flight and they never sent me the email promised with my new itinerary, my boarding pass didn't say my gate number but they verbally told me which one it will be. Come to find out, they gave me incorrect information and I had to run to the correct gate so I could be on time. Worst experience I ever had."

Pros: "Sorry, it! S not just United, but plane travel has now become a cattle call. No legroom, nickel and dimed for everything, the padding of flight durations to try to ensure on time arrivals, etc.... if I have to travel by air - I will use southwest Airlines - which I cannot believe I would ever say."
Cons: "The entire experience - excluding the sevice provided by most of the team. It isn't their fault."

Pros: "We landed on time"
Cons: "Everything, this was a completely miserable experience! Pay extra to choose your seat or risk not sitting beside your spouse, pay extra for checked bags, extra for carry-on, extra for s soda, hard fixed seats can't even lean back. Avoid this airline for long flights!"

Pros: "I really have no complaints. They were on time and the plane was clean."
Cons: "Better cancelation policy"

Pros: "Cheap ticket"
Cons: "I booked a round trip ticket with Frontier and on both flights the crew was rude. They need to send the flight attendants of this airline to a hospitality course or something. All other airlines I've traveled on I've never had a problem with the crew. I will stick with Delta and United from now on even if it costs more."

Pros: "The boarding process was pretty fast."
Cons: "Talk about hidden fees! You have to pay to choose a seat and pay for a carry on. You're allowed a "personal item" that has to fit under the seat in front of you, but what they don't tell you is that the seats are "sardines in a can" seats only about half as deep as traditional seats (so that personal item has to be smaller than you'd think). So let's talk about these seats. They are literally an inch thick. Like I mentioned previously, the seat part is only about half as deep as normal seats. It ended at mid-thigh for me and I'm short (5'3"). Accordingly the tray tables are only a hand's width, put a drink on it and that's about it."

Pros: "Direct flight."
Cons: "When I went to check in for my super cheap flight suddenly I had to pay to pick a seat! I've come to expect to pay to check a bag but this was such a lie to pay for the flight and then have to pay to have a seat. Did I buy a standing room only?"

Pros: "Flights were on time. It was a smooth flight."
Cons: "The seats were not very comfortable."

Pros: "Tbe crew was awesome! Seat didn't decline but it was in an area that they "used" to in the not so distant past so you'll want to upgrade to a stretch seat if that is important to you. There should be a N/A section for food and entertainment."
Cons: "Having to wait on the First Aid Kit to get certified. Delayed take off for over 30 minutes."

Pros: "Overall, everything was great. The crew was nice. The plane was nice."
Cons: "All the extra charges for carry-on luggage, etc."

Pros: "On time, clean, quick baggage claim."

Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Unprofessional crew. Cattle call boarding practice (all of zone 1 and anyone with a carry on) meant that although I paid more to be in the first row, I had to put my bag 7 rows back. I couldn't have my personal bag with me in the first row at all, which was hugely inconvenient. Doesn't seem like that should cost someone more, even if there is a bit of extra leg room. Nickled and dimed for everything, including carry on bag, beverages, snacks. No entertainment options."

Cons: "The ticket price doesn't include anything. Had to pay for seat. You can't have a carry on bag, you have to pay $30. 00 to $40. 00 for your carry on bag. You have to pay for water or soda etc. Nothing comes with the ticket price. By the end of the trip I paid more then if I would have gone with a different airline. Will never fly frontier again. Not worth it at all."

Pros: "I am pleased that I was able to get such a great deal on the flight. I also find the firmer seats to be comfortable.. There's no pillowy headrest to push against the back of my head. (For me this is important because headrests make my neck and back hurt.)"
Cons: "Nothing! Just be sure to read up on the baggage rules before you book and/or before you check in"

Pros: "Flight attendant Mary did her best to make up for the flights short comings. She was pleasant, cheerful and understood she didn't have much to work with."
Cons: "The agents at the ticket counter as well as those boarding the flight wee very unprofessional. They should be working cleaning bathrooms instead of interacting with the public. There was a manager present who acted more like a monitor than a manager. eventhough I have a return ticket, I will not use it and prefer to purchase a ticket on another airline. You can keep the money. I wouldn't subject a mango dog to your airline and service."

Pros: "We didn't crash and I had lots of leg room. I had to unknowingly pay for the leg room."
Cons: "They advertise really cheap flights however they don't tell you that you'll have to pay $60 for a carry-on bag. That's right.. any Carry on bags. Checked bags were also $60+. I also had to pay $50 for my "premium" seat because I didn't choose a seat at check-in. By premium they mean you get a few extra inches of leg room. On a 4.5 hour flight plus 1 hour of sitting on the runway, the only free amenity was a small cup of water. I will never be using this airline again."

Pros: "Plane, workers, quick baggage claim"
Cons: "No perks unless you pay extra for them. No WiFi on plane."

Pros: "Charges for carry on luggage should be disclosed PRIOR to the purchase of the ticket"
Cons: "Customer service is terrible took FOREVER to get someone on the phone which was null because she was COMPLETELY clueless about everything pretty sad every question she was asked she put me on hold tof askin amother agent. But no worries I will not fly again."

Pros: "Price"
Cons: "Everything else. Imagine sitting in a folding chair for 3hrs. This is the level of comfort provided. Spend the extra cash and fly a major airline."

Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "You pay for everything except toilet use."

Cons: "$10 voucher was given out that didn't work. Spent $30 on bag."

Pros: "Great price!"
Cons: "Certainly no-frills...but I get it."

Cons: "No issues."

Pros: "I was charged $40 for my bag, $2 for a soda that I didn't finish and my seat was $42. The 6 gate crew members in Atlanta were a joke (1 was eating a bag of cheetos). They allowed 4 people to run up the gangway to the plane without checking their tickets before the plane was cleaned from the previous flight. They had to call security to be sure the men never made it on board. They were extremely unprofessional and unorganized. Upon embarkation I had to remind her that I had a ticket that she needed to check! I required assistance with my bag, and had to shove it under my seat because i couldn't lift it. I will not be using them again. BTW, my American ticket was $26, included 1 bag and beverage service."
Cons: "I have never flown an airline that has to explain to the passengers that they must sit in their assigned seats. This statement was repeated several times during the boarding process. I have never experienced a flight quite like this one, the gate agents boarded no less than 6 or 7 times to escort people to their seats. We were over 30 minutes late leaving because of "weather" but I believe that it's code for incompetence. The flight crew were the only professionals on board. I have to say the woman at the ticket counter was quite helpful and very calm even when passengers became upset with her for charging the bag fee. The flight attendants were friendly but not attentive."

Pros: "Our flight arrived in Denver so fast it was outta this world. The staff did a wonderful job and made me feel comfortable. I truly enjoy flying frontier"
Cons: "It was some terrible kids on the flight that made so much noise and a mess all over the floor. The parents didn't even try to corral their children"

Pros: "It left on time and was efficient"
Cons: "The fact that I can't use our TSA pre-check like we do with the other airlines. I paid extra for a exit row and the seat did not tilt back?? I would like to have known otherwise I would not have paid the extra. When the stewardess came through she made it sound like she was only offering snacks you paid for and they never came back around. I just wanted a glass of water but they never came through offering that? It just seems there is an up sale at every turn so the low price fare that you think you got is really the same as everybody else"

Pros: "Boarding and flight were fine."
Cons: "I did not like the extra cost for luggage and having to purchase my seats. It made the flight not affordable. The luggage took a long time to get in Orlando."

Cons: "Delayed almost 3 different times.. Awful seats!!"

Pros: "Cheap flight. Didn't need food or more than my free travel bag for the weekend so it was perfect."
Cons: "Cabin was messy, seats uncomfortable. Glad it was a short flight!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight cancelled 10 minutes before boarding on last flight of the day. Next available flight was four days later! I had to take a refund and buy a ticket for the next day on another airline. From now on I'll just buy my ticket on another airline to start with and save the trouble or wasting my time with this airline."

Pros: "It was on time. Wasn't hot."
Cons: "Small trey on back of chairs"

Pros: "I liked that i made it to my destination."
Cons: "I do not like that the website does not clearly state that a backpack is a personal item. But here is the con, they say pay now for the bag or pay more at the airport! So of course you pay. On my return and upon picking up my boarding ticket i asked about my backpack and she told me it was a personal item and that it is free. She handed me a ready made slip of paper to call for a refund and said she would make a note in the system to this effect. When i called for my $80 refund i was told well the note in the system only mentioned your return flight so we will only return for that flight. Ok..ok. You see where im going with this. This is a class action lawsuit in the making."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flights are always delayed or out right cancelled"

Cons: "Fool me once, Shame on you. Fool me twice? There won't be a second flight on Frontier"

Cons: "The flight was overall very uncomfortable"

Cons: "Flight was delayed out of Atlabta and then re-rerouted to Cleveland before finally landing at IAD."

Pros: "Snacks & drinks included."
Cons: "The cost of baggage but on the other hand the airline fare was so inexpensive that in reality the trade off was worth it. You must a strategic packer when flying Frontier."

Cons: "I flew from Atlanta to NY and supposedly laguardia airport shut down arrivals because of snow... after circling in the air until the fuel ran out, we landed in Philly and an hour later were informed that it would take at least 3 hours to get into laguardia! That would have been fine if it wasn't for the fact that a delta flight left atlanta around the same time and landed in laguardia just fine shortly after we were told that we have to wait. When absolutely no one was there to inform the passengers what to do in terms of getting back on the plane, I just left and took the train home. Not cool frontier! Should have paid a little extra for a more reliable airline"

Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "It was rather like a city bus-- no amenities, nothing I would feed a wild raccoon, cramped, tight and generally unpleasant.A charge for a carry on?!? Really?"

Pros: "Very nice crew!"
Cons: "Delay from Miami to Atlanta"

Cons: "Seats are crowded and quite uncomfortable."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable. The boarding was late and we arrived late to my destination. The baggage claim took too long. The pricing for bags were too expensive. I will never use frontier again, that's why there prices are so cheap."

Pros: "The Prices"
Cons: "NOTHING At All. This was great"

Cons: "No WiFi"

Pros: "Price, flight time"

Pros: "Everything worked like clockwork from the boarding, flight. & exiting. The attendants were professional and attentive, in particular with a couple of children traveling without adults. We even arrived about twenty minutes ahead of schedule!!"
Cons: "What's not to like??"

Pros: "I had to book a flight at last minute so I appreciated the low fares that Frontier offers. I have flown Frontier before and miss the televisions that were once in the seats as well as a legitimate tray."
Cons: "Charging for carry-on luggage and charging for soft drinks and snacks is a bit tacky. To not have proper storage for carry-on because emergency equipment was in the overhead suggests poor layout design of the airplane."

Pros: "Got me to where I was going"
Cons: "1 hour late"

Pros: "Boarding was easy and crew was nice"
Cons: "Very tight accommodations."

Pros: "I am handicapped and need a wheelchair to get to the gate. After I arrived at the gate and was ready to pre-board, Frontier sent another attendant to wheel me down the ramp which was fantastic since most times I have to drag and stumble my way down the ramp to board. When the plane arrived at Dulles, there was a wheelchair waiting for me at the door of the plane-a first in many flights. I am grateful for the Frontier staff's consideration and assistance."
Cons: "Having flown Frontier before, I was aware of the baggage charges, so I try to prepare accordingly (pay for all baggage online rather than at the gate). I am a bit perplexed, however, at the seat charge. I am handicapped and must sit in an aisle seat where I can stretch out my leg to some degree. I was told that because I am handicapped I do not have to pay for a special seat, but every time fly Frontier, I have had to pay to get an aisle seat. What do I have to do to get the necessary seating without charge other than sit wherever they place me and chance a circulatory episode?"

Pros: "The flight was quick and easy, the plane was good (nothing special). No food or entertainment but that was ok as it was a short flight. Crew was personable and efficient"
Cons: "It seemed that there was a lack of communication between the flight crew and the check in counter. The ladys at check in said the flight was delayed by two hours but once i got to the gate the board and crew said the flight was on time, so i dont know what that was about."

Pros: "The service from the employees were great. Their attitudes were superior. The flight went with no problems."
