Airline reviews

Pros: "The price was great, and it seemed like a fun idea to ride in a "private" plane."
Cons: "We had no security check on our first leg and only went through security for our second leg on the same plane. Huh? Also there was no communication from the airline about checking in or about the fact that the airline isn't in a main DFW terminal. Finally, both flights-- coming and going-- were hours late and caused significant scheduling problems."

Pros: "The price was great, and it seemed like a fun idea to ride in a "private" plane."
Cons: "The flight was hours late and caused significant scheduling problems. Very small and uncomfortable plane."

Cons: "Was supposed to leave Denver at 7pm. Did not leave until 9am next morning with absolutely NO compensation. Could have driven home faster."

Cons: "We were told the water and peanuts were in these drawers, help yourself. It made sense for the type of flight it was. Never been on a flight like that before."

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: "It was like flying on a private/ corporate plane . Will def go again"

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: "I loved the convenience of this flight from Merced to LAX. A low fare, a small plane, a huge time saver. I will fly with you again! This flight made a cheaper; direct flight to europe possible. Thank you! Great (young) staff!"

Pros: "Crew was friendly & helpful. Plane was comfortable. I left my headphones at check in & when I returned they gave them back to me."
Cons: "Coming back we had to wait about 20 mins to get a shuttle to the gate (LAX). Crew was as frustrated as us if not more. Overall was still a great a experience & will definitely book again."

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

Pros: "Did not like it at all"
Cons: "Having to wait to another airport. I checked in. I was so hungry couldn't get anything to eat cause we had to go to another airport. So we had to check in and then set back down there was not any food anywhere. I will not be using this airline again"

Pros: "I've never traveled in a plane that sat 8 people but I was an exciting experience. Our pilot was excellent and the landings were so smooth. Boarding was a breeze since there were only 3-7 passengers. I would definitely fly with Boutique again."

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

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

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: "Nothing"
Cons: "Only one person to help, delayed because of fog and no explanation, had to call many times to get my bags back"

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

Pros: "The airport personnel for Boutique are great!"
Cons: "Everything was wonderful!"

Pros: "Crew was awesome."
Cons: "Did not give me much information about my next flight , like times or anything. Would not cancel and reschedule my flight just delaying it for over 13 hours overnight. And I was told to book directly with the airline and not through a third-party. Because as you know they cannot make any changes to my reservation."

Pros: "The flight was fast and easy. The pricing is affordable. I like how there is no hidden fees. I also like how the plane only has a few seats."
Cons: "The plane was really hot when I first got on."

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!"

Cons: "So easy and comfortable to fly with Boutique!"

Pros: "It was a different experience altogether compared to a normal commercial flight. Walking out on the tarmac eith your two pilots and 4 co-passengers beats standing in the frenzy of people jockeying into position so they can bring all their luggage on and avoid checked bag fees."
Cons: "Was a little priecier than other options but not much."

Pros: "Felt like flying private. No waiting in long lines to board or feeling "herded". Smoothest take and landing, and a very friendly crew. Refreshing break from the major airlines."
Cons: "Plane was very warm while boarding and awaiting take off."

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: "QUICK, EASY, FRIENDLY & EXCELLENT PRICE. THEY GET YOU TO THE "HARD-TO-GET-TO" PLACES WITH EASE!"

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: "Staff was very nice and willing to help. My luggage got stuck in TSA check and they had it on the next flight to my destination. Plane was very nice and the pilots were fantastic at not only flying but also in giving flight information"
Cons: "When my luggage arrived the next day to my destination, they called and told me I could come pick it up. however I live a few hours from the airport and asked if they could have it delivered to me asap. Yes, that was approved. The lady in charge of my bag went off work for 3 days and delayed my delivery. she should have asked someone else on staff to do instead of tell me my luggage was on the way."

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "Awesome airline. Polite and very comfortable."

Pros: "The flight was smooth and comfortable. It was nice not having to deal with the major airports."

Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "I'll admit, I was arrived some what close to the cut-off time but still had around 50 minutes to spare before boarding my flight. Staff was unable to provide me a printed version of my boarding pass. In result, I was not able to make my flight. Boutique air refuses to address the matter."

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

Pros: "Easy on and Easy off, great customer service at checkin in LAX"
Cons: "NO TSA PRE? Cmon...that is a must these days. Flight left LAX almost 45mins late because we were waiting for one passenger to arrive. I'm all for waiting 10 mins or so for someone who has already checked in but to inconvenience the entire plane for one person that long was too much. Pilot who spoke to us upon leaving and when we landed in Merced was devoid of customer service skills and spoke in a way that was hard to understand."

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: "Small plane. Fun, new experience! Smooth flight, cool pilots. Never ridden in an 8-seater before! They gave me peanuts when I asked, too."
Cons: "There was an issue with boarding pass printing -- the printer had some problems for a bit, and our agent had some difficulty trouble-shooting the issue. I don't blame her at all -- she got it fixed, and we were only delayed 10 mins or so in the end. To make things perfect, that part of the process would have been full-proof."

Pros: "Great experience. Great service."
Cons: "No issues here."

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)."

Pros: "The comfort, professionalism and customer service were second to none."

Pros: "The flight was short and sweet.chexking in was simple...we just showed our I.d. The crew was friendly and the plane was nice."
Cons: "Nothing really."

Pros: "I promise I wasn't paid to write this, I am a frequent flyer and a believer in the way Boutique has things set up. The staff was friendly, from the counter workers to the pilots. The whole process was way faster than a larger airliner, granted there is usually a maximum of 8 passengers, but you get on fast and take off quickly! Plus every seat is first class; they rotate to allow more leg room, and recline very nicely! First time flying with them, and last time flying anyone else (if I can help it!)."
Cons: "The airplane is smaller than your usual airline, it's a Pilatus PC-12, so the turbulence is a little more apparent. Beyond that, it is a wonderful airplane!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I had read the previous reviews and decided to ignore them but what I got was even worse The plane was delayed. When it showed up it could not take off because it had a problem we had to wait for 2hrs to be talled that the flight has been cancelled because the faulty part has to come from Denver. If you value your life dont use this airline"

Pros: "I loved the intimate feel of flying this airline. Meeting the captain on the Tarmac and getting personalized care like coffee, water, and descriptions of what we are flying over and around was awesome. With such a chill environment and the ability to shoot great photos out of the plane window I really felt like I was flying in my own private jet."
Cons: "Nothing. Nothing at all. We even landed early."

Pros: "They escorted us through TSA- super convenient"

Pros: "So everyone was so nice I felt like a celebrity"

Pros: "The crew did a great job landing the plane, thanks!"
Cons: "The flight made an emergency landing at another airport and the passengers were told we were "free to go" without any suggestions or help from the airline. Later, we were told to call for a refund. When I called I was denied my refund. Wow. Horrible experience."

Cons: "This airline is unprepared for any type of unexpected maintenance issues, any sort of problem that they have has to be contracted in, such a waist of time and a lot of hassle, if I would have known this, I would have never flown with Boutique Air, I had to sit through 5 delays, which resulted into my flight being canceled because the last delayed lead to a flat tire and in order to replace that tire, it needed to be driven down from Merced, Ca (Which is where I was trying to fly to, LAX to Merced), so unprofessional , and would never recommend anyone to fly with them! Because them, I had to purchase a same day flight with a diffrent airline company that was twice as expensive. I wish I had a great experience and was writing a positive review like all the others, but i was left with this experience with the company."
