Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "The carrots were hard and the bread was cold."
Pros: "Comfortable plane due to few passengers"
Cons: "7 hour delay after flight postponed."
Cons: "I would ask that the gate does not share in detail reason for delay in seat assignment is related to getting a family sitting together when the basic rules should apply unilaterally."
Pros: "Got to my destination without any issues"
Cons: "Seats/seating area are too small, and I'm not a big person."
Cons: "The flight was delayed almost 6 hours, the crew was rude and the “comfort +” seats had very little leg room ."
Pros: "The flight was on time, the crew was pleasant and looked like they enjoyed working in the air."
Cons: "Our second time on a 787 Dreamliner across the Atlantic as about the same as the the first. The seat pitch is very tight so when a passenger reclines into the next row the seatback nearly touches your face. The Dreamliner seats seem to be very hard and it's difficult to get comfortable."
Cons: "Flight was delayed a bit due to a couple passenger booking/misc issues. 1st class didn’t get gate bevfood service. Oven was busted so my meal wasn’t available. Entertainment console had all channels functional except — not really an issue I just really wanted to have ESPN playing in the background"

Pros: "On time departure/arrival despite weather in Atlanta. Always a fan of free messaging and choice of snacks."
Cons: "Delta needs to invest in their gate area at ORD. Understand it’s not a hub but it’s a key business/leisure destination. The MD-80s are ok for a short hop but over 1 hour unless you’re in Comfort+, it’s tight."
Pros: "Snacks, cleanliness and crew"
Cons: "From the begging they changed the flights for something totally different. It was a 14 hour trip. Awful"

Pros: "being able too use our electronic devices in Wi-Fi mode the whole time. Last time I flew everything had to be shut off during take off and landing."
Pros: "Very nice flight and attentive staff. Enjoyed the view of NYC as we flew up the East River, then looped over Nassau County to approach LGA."
Cons: "The male flight attendant who handed out the complimentary drinks and snacks acted a bit strangely. I was very thirsty, and I asked him if I could keep the rest of the can of soda. He neither said yes nor no, but rather completely ignored what I said and just poured my drink and moved on. I was a mildly annoyed, but figured maybe it was policy and he was shy and didn't want to debate the matter. When he took care of the older couple behind us, however, things got really strange. He asked them whether they wanted pretzels or peanuts, but they misheard him and asked for a ginger ale. I happened to know that he did have ginger ale, since my wife had just gotten one, but rather than just pouring the old folks a drink, he repeated himself. "Peanuts or pretzels?" They misheard again and asked him whether he had a diet ginger ale. Again, rather than just pour them the drink, he repeated himself. "Peanuts or pretzels?" This went round and round a few more times -- like a poorly designed computer UI that refuses to accept anything except the correct input -- before the old couple finally figured out the disconnect and picked their snacks before their drinks. Very weird."
Pros: "Almonds were very good as snacks. Flught departed ontime and arrived early. Checked bag arrived in less than 20 minutes."
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Too cold Not friendly boarding agent"
Cons: "2.5 hour delay for no apparent reason at first (supposed mechanical issues with plane) and then waited on plane at gate for a missing pilot who never got picked up from his airport and got stuck in Chicago traffic trying to get to O'Hare. Eventually had to take pilot from another flight before leaving at 8:45 when flight was scheduled for 6:00am."
Pros: "I loved his pilot. His take of and landing were so smooth. I wish I could request him and his co-pilot for every trip I take. The flight attendants served and did not hang around and harass you like some do. They were efficient."
Cons: "Had a death in the family and no one would help me get back home"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable. Snacks!!! Nice flight crew."
Cons: "I liked everything."
Pros: "The Gogo Inflight wifi and entertainment did not work for even a minute. I choose flights based on their amenities and this one had offered full WIFI service which swayed me to choose to fly with Delta. I'm not sure who is to blame about this issue but I'm pretty frustrated that it was completely dysfunctional."
Pros: "Friendly staff and onetime aircraft"
Cons: "Nothing in perticular"
Cons: "Plane was sat broken at gate and needed part to be flown in. 150 minutes delayed. Not acceptable."
Pros: "I missed my flight for the first time and I was having a complete meltdown at the check in desk until the sweetest agent said "oh no worries sweetheart, let's find you another flight back home"... It seems so simple but with the morning I had, this simple act had me in tears! The kindness and patience she showed me was amazing and definitely the reason I will always fly Delta to any and every destination they are able to take me! <3"
Pros: "No fee to get on an earlier flught"
Cons: "When I tried to rebook online this flight was not an option"
Cons: "I am a 5'3" 125# woman who, unfortunately, had a middle seat assignment. The passenger to my right, on the aisle, weighed approximately 375# and took up 1/3 of my seat. The arm was not able to go down comfortably, and when it did it was not usable . The passenger on my left, window seat, was probably 6'7" and had to sit with a man spread in order to fit. I could not move and was extremely uncomfortable. The plane was overbooked so I was unable to move. Therefore, worst flight ever. Plus, I paid for a full seat and was only able to occupy half of it."
Pros: "Flight and service were fine. Because there was a long delay, the ticket agents supplied free sandwiches, drinks, salads, and coloring books and tried to engage the waiting passengers with games. I won a $50 Delta gift certificate! The captain had good communication with the passengers to keep us informed."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 4 1/2 hours because no crew was available."
Pros: "The in-flight service was good."
Cons: "Poor hospitality by alaska airline staff, especially by MrPavel at gate H4, 01nov2016, prior boarding around 0730am"
Pros: "Seats were nice"
Cons: "Airplane interior needs updating, old seats."
Pros: "Small plane. Very good service. Did not suffer through the crazy multi level boarding calls that some airlines have. No super secret airline clubs that board first. Flying into the Marine terminal is the best part of the trip."
Cons: "The wifi didn't seem to work at all on the plane."
Pros: "The airlines bumped us up to better seats without us asking!"
Pros: "Seat was comfortable. Crew was professional."
Cons: "Loading plane was a little chaotic and the comfortable seat was a little overpriced for the legroom."

Pros: "Short connection times"
Cons: "Being on time because of short connection time"
Pros: "Friendly crew and relatively new entertainment system"

Cons: "Flight was canceled"
Cons: "Well organized loading, consistent beverage service"
Pros: "great trip and crew"
Pros: "Kayak was helpful with all the reminder and alerts. The staff was extremely friendly."
Pros: "On time and convenient"
Pros: "Not much here. The seats were ok, but the rest of the flight the airline was just poor."
Cons: "The airline is so outdated and behind the times of their competitors, their in that they don't have in flight entertainment unless you download their app and give them your email address. On top of that when I originally booked my flights, I had made sure to have 1.5 hr for a layover between my connecting flights. Well, they decided to move up my connector such that I had 25 minutes to run across 2 terminals. They only give you pretzels on the plane, and a single soda drink. They offer you "food bundles" but why do I want to pay $8 for a sandwich that costs $1 to make."
Pros: "Totally fine"
Cons: "It was fine"
Cons: "There was delay, as one of the steward was not there. There were 2 connecting flights for me, and was totally stressed about my connections."

Cons: "Watched a very weird interaction between Muslim (with a hajib) women with a kiddo and desk crew. She wanted to sit next to her child on the flight and needed to switch seats to be able to. Woman was very gracious and understanding that she was asking for an accommodation. Ends up her flight to Philly had been moved to a different gate after they had found a volunteer to switch seats. Volunteer was totally unfazed but Desk crew made it seem as tho the Muslim mom was at fault for the time and trouble they had had to go through to accommodate her. She apologized profusely and was very appreciative for the trouble evernote had gone to for her. . As she walked away the crew looked at each other and shook their heads. Pretty crummy way to treat customers!"
Pros: "The crew was awesome. We were early arriving. More leg room this flight and I loved the in-flight entertainment games. Also charged area was good for phones. Didn't like having to pay for Wi-Fi onboard."
Cons: "The crew was awesome. We were early arriving. More leg room this flight and I loved the in-flight entertainment games. Also charged area was good for phones. Didn't like having to pay for Wi-Fi onboard."

Cons: "There wasn't anything I didn't like."
Pros: "Seats were new."
Cons: "A lot less leg room than Southwest. Very cramped. Boarding crew in PHX was very uptight and stressed. Not sure why as everything seemed in order."
Cons: "The seats are terrible. On the first leg I couldn't use the back of the seat. Four hours hunched over in a tiny space is not fun."
Pros: "Crew was nice including those helping with boarding. Smooth ride."
Cons: "Limited snack options."
Pros: "The crew was wonderful. Our flight was delayed 3 hours and they did their best to keep all the passengers comfortable and happy."
Cons: "There was no food or entertainment to rate"
Cons: "3 gate changes 2+ hours delayed leaving PHX"
Pros: "More available leg room on aisle seat."
Cons: "The lady at the ticket counter was very rude and not helpful at all. Never flown American before. We're told to get our seats at the counter. She was very unhelpful!!"
Cons: "The plane was very old, the crew was unprofessional and further only provided drink service once in 4 hours. It was mass chaos boarding because the flight that landed was late as well."
Pros: "Boarding was efficient."
Cons: "The flight crew acted like they hated being there."
Pros: "Crew seemed nice."
Cons: "Ground crew were unfriendly and disorganized. Aircraft was old and cramped."
Pros: "Good electronic pass. Quick and easy. Crew was very nice and helpful"
Cons: "The delay in boarding trying to switch people around!! No food except to high price purchase."
Cons: "We didn't make the connection because of American's incompetence on our previous flt. of Hermosillo to Phoenix."
Pros: "Being number one on the upgrade list at boarding, I appreciated being upgraded to first class as an Executive Platinum member."
Cons: "The pilot provided no departure or arrival information; he simply said cabin crew take your places for take off, and on arrival, he simply said the aircraft was one hundred miles from landing in twenty minutes with no other details enroute."
Cons: "I am a platinum member. My bag was 5 lbs over weight. I had to take items out of the suitcase and put them in my carry-on!! They weighed my suitcase and even make me take 1 lb out because the scale was 51 lbs, instead of 50! Furthermore, the flight was half empty. Then I had one extra package that I wanted to check. I was told to take it as a carry-on. I told them I thought it was too large. They disagreed. In any event, I took the package to security and was told it was too large! I am really disappointed in the service and am hoping this is not because American Airlines is now running US airways."
Pros: "Flight operated on time and safely"
Cons: "First class flight attendant did not recognize me by name or as an Executive Platinum member; aircraft window screen next to seat 1A was inoperative; pilots provided minimal communications and were very uninformative."
Pros: "The operations once my husband and I arrived to Phoenix Airport were absolutely horrible and caused us to miss our connecting flight home to San Diego. Our luggage took a long time to come out, then we had to stay in a 45 minute line to get through Customs, even though we didn't have anything to claim. After that, we then had to stay in another hour and a half line to get through TSA. The whole time, we kept trying to explain to the different airport staff that we had a connecting flight that we needed to catch, however nothing was being done by any of the parties to ensure that we would make it to our connecting flight. All parties (Customs, TSA, & American Airlines) just kept trying to pass the blame to each other instead of helping us and were rude on top of that. The delays were out of our control causing us to not only miss our flight, but also caused us to have to spend more money to stay at a hotel in Phoenix since the next flight available was not until the morning. This situation has also caused both my husband and me to miss work, causing us to miss out on today's wages. This entire situation has been the worst airport experience we've ever had, and we've traveled all over the world. We usually fly with American Airlines, and would hate to have to go with another airline, but we would have to if this situation is not rectified, and if we are not compensated for all of the additional costs imposed on us."

Pros: "Flight late due to discovery of radio not working just before flight departure. My seats had less room than seate in front of me and it would not recline leaving me an unacceptable amount of space."
Cons: "It got to Hawaii and my bags also made it. Since flight was late I could not get my rental car costing me more money."
Cons: "We travel to Kauai every year with 3 little kids and every year the crew runs out of food. On a 7 hour flight, there should be food or snacks available for purchase of you are past the first 5 rows"
Pros: "Everything was great thanks"
Cons: "Five star trip"
Cons: "Staff not friendly, no food"
Pros: "Boarding was great as usual. Flight attendants were friendly. Flight was comfortable."
Cons: "There was an hour delay waiting to be de-iced when boarding happened on time. Then, because we pulled away to be de-iced, the departure time didn't show an hour late so I couldn't tell my ride what time I'd be arriving since it wasn't updated until we were in flight."
Pros: "getting bumped up to economy plus and being in an exit row."
Cons: "Poor communication about delays, delayed for over an hour with no where to find once on the plane, nobody offered any of the passengers anything to drink. Overall my worst flying experience with United ever."
Pros: "My bag actually made it to my destination before I did. I also managed to modify my flight on the United app to a better one than the customer service provided."
Cons: "no accommodation or food vouchers offered. If I didn't have a smart phone to shop around, I would have been subject to price gouging of local hotels. I was quoted $399/night at one of the generic hotels advertised at the airport kiosk."
Pros: "It seemed they had just installed new carpet and the seats looked like new. The plane was nice."
Cons: "We were 2 and a half hours late to Omaha. There were thirty planes ahead of us to take off in Chicago. Very long wait inside of the plane."
Pros: "comfortable . got moved up to economy plus. enjoyed the seats in the exit row"
Cons: "we were delayed."
Pros: "I arrived in Omaha in one piece."
Cons: "Everything else."
Cons: "A cat in a carrier was very loud and restless during flight."
Pros: "I love United Airlines airplanes. They are roomy and comfortable. I don't like to fly, but I have to admit, I felt pretty good on these flights. I get scared when it's bumpy, but I guess that's just life in the air."
Cons: "There was a slight delay in Chicago (20 minutes), which is not much to complain about. I just wanted to get home."
Pros: "CHECKIN Is long and awful."
Cons: "Staff rude"
Cons: "United and AL never helped rebook my flight from Chicago to Omaha. Spent too much time and money to get back home."
Pros: "I had excellent service, the employees were extremely nice and helpful. I use a wheelchair due to disability, so it's important to me to have someone take me from entrance to the gate and help getting on board. From the woman who helped me with getting me to the gate, the gate agent and flight attendants, I was very impressed with UA service today."
Cons: "Similarly, poor cabin staffing"
Cons: "Delayed for a latch for 10min then 10 more then 30 in reality was around 1:30 plus when we finally bored the plane we got delayed again because they had to spray the aircraft because of the snow supposedly 5 minutes it took 25 My overall opinion about united airlines is: Never again Bad customer service"
Pros: "Everything was good!"
Cons: "While going inside the flight they told me there is no room for Carryon and gave me ticket to book the luggage. When I went inside the Flight there is lot of room to carryon's, why they have to lie this BS."
Cons: "See above comments."
Cons: "My luggage was lost"
Pros: "We had no delays this time and had a smooth flight."
Cons: "While we arrived on time, we all waited 40 minutes to get our checked luggage at the end of the flight. United is not my first choice in airlines: they give the impression that they're giving the bare minimum and not really trying to make a good experience for the customer."
Cons: "The boarding gate changed but the gate information did not. I thought I would save money and time flying United at Ohare. That's a mistake I will never make again."
Pros: "Seats were spacious, we were on time."
Pros: "Pilot was very happy and friendly! Very informative throughout flight."
Cons: "On the return home, I was seated in the last row right next to the lavatory. I was bumped into at least 40 times by other passengers and flight attendants."
Pros: "not a damn thing"
Cons: "Weather delays are a typical part of travel. What's not typical are 5+ hour delays and sitting on the tarmac and watching your connection take off without you. First Class seats morphed into Economy center seats the next day, with nary a hotel room in sight. Thanks for nothing."
Cons: "The flight was very hot and uncomfortable!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 8 hour and then canceled. 1.5 hour flight between Chicago & Omaha. Weather was gorgeous in both places. Will ever fly united again for this."
Cons: "Everything! Even worse than my previous flight. Delays were inexcusable, staff ridiculously unfriendly and just bad attitudes all round. Very unpleasant experience, won't be using this airline ever again."
Pros: "Nice clean plane, very friendly and helpful crew."
Cons: "The hour delay."
Pros: "The crew was fantastic despite the entertainment system wasn't working"
Cons: "The entertainment and wifi was nonfunctional for the 8 hr flight."
Pros: "Pre-check with United"
Cons: "Did not get connecting flights boarding pass from the beginning. Short connection time - was very stressful"
Cons: "Couldn't reserve/request a seat. Assigned to me About 1.5 hours prior to boarding. Had to wait Around the gate. Should have told me I would not have any choice. Could have walked around. Got a middle seat. It was a long flight."
Pros: "The flight attendant was great! Pleasant, polite and professional!"
Cons: "The flight from ORD to ABE was on a plane with expired maintenance logs or inspections? We were delayed 2 hours in arriving for what seemed like a pilots lax in paperwork. But what does a customer expect from an airline who knows they that customer by the balls?"
Pros: "Great boarding at ORD."
Cons: "My seat"
Pros: "Movie selection and delivery/access was very good"
Cons: "Seat legroom is insufficient. There was a water leak in the ceiling that dripped cold Wster on me for a portion of the trip."
Cons: "The flight was late by 5 hrs due to mechanical problems. The gate crew was confused about what to do and we ended up with several deboardings and boardings. Food was terrible. The entertainment system did not work."
Pros: "departed and arrived on time"
Cons: "cost was high person next to me on the way there was rather large and made my trip uncomfortable - not trying to be mean just being honest"
Pros: "Everything else was fine"
Cons: "For such a long flight and quite expensive some food should be provided. I have never flown before like that (over hundreds of overseas flights) and had NO FOOD given at all."
Pros: "the flight attendant crew was super nice throughout the entire flight."
Cons: "the tvs weren't working for the all the seats, and the food was not very tasty."
Pros: "Flight itself was good. Nice flight attendants. Funny pilot."
Cons: "The lady at desk to board the flight made me check my carry on. I had assumed it was because the plane was full, but when I got on the plane there were more than adequate spots to stow more bags. There was a compartment across from my seat that remained open the entire flight. While I completely understand the need to check extra luggage when the plane is full, I was very upset when I saw it was not. I intentionally fly with a carry on for the convenience, and to be inconvenienced for absolutely no reason made me not want to fly with this company again for fear it could happen again in the future."
Pros: "The flight crew was very helpful and organised the connection between two flights very well under pressing circumstances when there was only 15 min between the flights and the boarding gates being in opposite ends of a big Munic airport"
Cons: "The flight was delayed for 2 h, so we had to run through Munic airport for connected flight. Good sport, but rather tiresome."
Cons: "8 channels of looped shows and movies. Too long a flight for that...and then have to use my device to watch on the free part of the wifi.so no battery left. For this price? And I booked through Lufthansa but flew United. Bad form."
Cons: "The plane was tiny and the seats were tiny. Could not carry on a bag and it took a long time to get the bag back from having been gate checked."
Pros: "the japanese speaking flight attendant was exellent! she was very observant to passengers needs. i was also pleasantly surprised by the entertainment system."
Cons: "there was a flight delay due to maintenance, which was inconvenient."
Pros: "The trip had minimal turbulence. The landing was smooth."
Cons: "-The 767 was old. -It did not have any power ports for my laptop or cell phone. -The interior was old and dated, reminiscent of the 1980's. -The TV screen for entertainment seemed to be smaller than a Samsung Note 5. -The seats are unreasonably narrow and not comfortable. -I had an isle seat and my shoulder width is literally wider than the seats. -Every time the isle cart went by, it hit my left shoulder. -The seats in general seating are too small and were cramped. -God forbid if we had to egress out of the plane. -There were no adjustable head rests, like other airlines have. -The Flight Attendant for my section DID NOT make me feel like I was a valued customer, even though I paid over $1500 for flight. -She scolded me for asking "Why," when she TOLD me that I needed to sit in one seat, even though the seat next to me was vacant. She literally treated me like a child. - NOT COOL. Overall, in comparison to my last international flight, I WOULD NOT recommend United. I feel like I paid too much for my experience with United. Aer Lingus has better/newer aircraft, better cabin crew, better entertainment selections to include music and a selection of movies to watch at your convenience, more comfortable seats, provide a better environment, and a better value for your experience. Aer Lingus was also cheaper. So if you are reading this, please shop around if you are considering United to fly."
Pros: "Crew was nice but seemed tired or flustered. I could stow my backpack in overhead because it was a backpack, a true carry-on piece. Flight was short."
Cons: "Flight was delayed. Boarding is always a pain. Airline calls boarding, everyone queues up and then it takes forever. Also they take to long boarding business class etc then many times they call a group # but allow passengers from other groups to board, not including people with disabilities, older passengers who need assistance."
Pros: "Flight left on time crew friendly and attentive"
Cons: "Long flight could not get a diabetic meal !"
Cons: "It was delayed so I had to take another flight. I've been trying to get this flight refunded"

Cons: "Being on the plane."
Pros: "The first 3 rows recline so if you get one of those it’s okay"
Cons: "They don’t even offer water. The check-in system sucks. The kiosks don’t work and the staff shows up late, even though they have posted signs that say it opens 2 hours before boarding."
Pros: "The price was doable and the cabin temperature was surprisingly comfortable compared to other airlines."
Cons: "The seats are so small and cramped! I’m a small person, just 5’ 5” and 130 lbs and I feel so cramped. You’re packed in so tight that you can’t avoid constantly touching elbows with someone."
Pros: "Where is the soul???"
Pros: "* Comfortable seats and friendly crew. * Fast flight once we got on the air."
Cons: "* Plane was delayed leaving. * LENGTHY sales pitch for the Frontier credit card during the flight. * Weird guy next to us played and sang along to country/western music the whole flight ... with NO earbuds. * Weird guy next to us announced the Nebraska towns he recognized from the window."

Cons: "Cost of pop"
Cons: "Had to wait 45 minutes for the rental car. I paid for it before I left."

Pros: "The temperature on the plane was actually okay. The crew was nice."
Cons: "Delayed for no apparent reason. 2nd flight with Frontier, both delayed for no reason. Started boarding process, and then we all stood on the jetbridge for more than 5 minutes before ANYONE actually got on the plane. I find it very unaccommodating that we have to pay for ANY refreshment. The tickets are not THAT much less money than some airlines, and other airlines include your seat cost, carry-on baggage, drink and snack at NO EXTRA CHARGE."
Pros: "Baggage was more than other airlines. I couldn't check in early. There were not enough agents to handle such a large flight, not to mention that only water was available for free. Nickel and dime away all customers."
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "Fees for snacks, long time to dock and disembark"
Pros: "Same as above."
Cons: "Same as above."
Pros: "Worst customer service ever...Flight cancelled today Omaha due to ice.....totally understandable..but make up flight was 4 days away. Seriously??"
Pros: "its the flight from las vegas to Denver, its like the roller coaster"
Cons: "Plan delayed again on my connection flight (F9 180) because after we boarded they realized that they didn't have a copilot and he was 1 hour out. That would of been nice before boarding plane. Once we go on our way and taxied out to runway we were told that we had to wait 10 min for the tower to send us our flight path. 1 hour later we finally left."
Cons: "The seats are uncomfortable!"
Pros: "Easy, Cheap, Clean, Basic."
Cons: "There wasn't anything to complain about. I didnt' like the fact that you have to pay for a carry-on, but then again, the flight was hundreds cheaper so in the long run, all good."
Pros: "They were on-time and courteous"
Cons: "Charging $30 for a bag"
Cons: "They now charge for everything (carry on is more expensive than a checked bag), no more courtesy drink and bag of pretzels . The flight was delayed 45 minutes."
Cons: "I cancelled this flight. The next two frontier flights I rate very poor"
Cons: "Initial delay of departure within weeks after purchase of ticket. While in Denver flight was delayed multiple times and gate changed without explanation. Plane departed six hours late after sitting on the runway for an hour and a half. We weren't even given complimentary soft drinks for the inconvenience."
Pros: "An initial two hour delay caused by the airline (a flight attendant blamed understaffing) caused an additional two hour delay due to weather. The boarding process was incredibly inefficient and the communication about delays and status was almost nonexistent. Generally speaking, I feel like most airlines have issues so I am usually more loyal to price than to any particular brand, but after this experience, I will be more than slightly hesitant to fly frontier again."
Cons: "They delayed departure by approx an hour due to a connecting flight being late"
Pros: "Staff are friendly"
Cons: "Seats are not comfortable - no padding. Leg space is non-existant. Tray table is about the size of a postcard. Thank goodness the flight was less than 2 hours"
Pros: "Easy flight"
Cons: "$35 for a carry on bag?!?! Come on!!"
Cons: "We sat on the plane for almost 2 hours once we arrived to Omaha. I had tickets to see Olympic Trials Swimming Finals and missed over half of it."
Cons: "Flight was delayed leaving, sat on the runway for an hour, could not notify person picking me up because phone had to be shut off. Return flight was also delayed, could not get to the gate and was told 10 minutes and it was 1/2 hour. Had not flown Frontier for a long time, extra charges for carry-on luggage, seat, drink during flight, etc., etc., etc."
Pros: "See above"
Pros: "The bathrooms were clean, otherwise there isn't much to write about..."
Cons: "The flight was delayed because an engine malfunction; which discovered right before take off, luckily they caught it. We waited about an hour and the "new" seats are ridiculously uncomfortable and I'm pretty sure they don't recline. Overall would not fly with them again unless the price is right."
Cons: "I wish that the crew had said something about the turbulence, like "oh this is completely normal" or "we're hitting some turbulence""
Cons: "I can tell from reading other reviews that I am not the only person who is extremely annoyed with Frontier charging customers for both checked luggage and carry-on luggage. Congratulations Frontier - you have found a very easy way to lose a large amount of business to your competitors. As I mentioned before, not only will I never use Frontier again in the future, but I will go out of my way to discourage friends and family from using Frontier."
Pros: "I loved the flight attendants. They were very warm and kind. They made what turned out to be a very bumpy ride more comfortable for the passengers because they were more expressive about the turbulence than the pilots."
Cons: "The take off was a ride before we even got off the ground. I don't know if it was due to wind or what. The plane was swaying from side to side before the wheels were up...and there was no explanation from the pilots. What I would like to express the most about this particular flight was that I felt the pilots were not very conciencious about expressing concern for how the passengers were doing during what was a pretty bumpy ride from start to finish."
Cons: "I did not appreciate being asked if I would like to pay extra for a seat. It was misleading and several prompts kept it in front of me. Another way to get money from customers AFTER the ticket purchase. The seat area is very cramped as well and if you want more room, you have to pay for it. Paying for a bag whether carry on or checked? Frontier is a scam."
Pros: "Not driving 8 hours"
Cons: "Having to fly to Nebraska lol"
Pros: "Great communication via email related to gate change/ departure status/ when we could check in. The plane was clean and departure was on time, as well as arrival. Courteous staff"
Cons: "The teeny, tiny, metal tray tables. Unexpected fee for picking seats. Unexpected fee for carry on bags! A can of soda was $1.99. The original price for tickets was well priced, however when you tack on an extra $70 each, it adds up to what I would have paid with another airline."
Cons: "I was cancelled due to weather and they could not get me another flight for 3 days later"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Televisions did not work, no WiFi, paid $30 for luggage, frontier sent my bag to Cancun Mexico instead on Omaha on a direct flight, took 7 days to get my suit case!!! Hoping for a full reimbursement of items purchased in a timely manner. I do not want to fly frontier again but unfortunately I have a family vacation booked in July by frontier and am not looking forward to flying with them again. Customer service was okay, lack of communication was evident, could not even locate my suitcase for 2 days and was told different info by different people and was given wrong numbers to call, I would not recommend frontier"
Cons: "I have never taken a flight where I had to pay to get a seat assigned and then pay a fee for my CARRY ON BAG. The ticket price seemed to be a good deal. All the additional costs made it so that I will likely never fly Frontier again!!"
Cons: "Again, the seats are just ridiculously uncomfortable. My back felt sore and stiff the entire flight and I only rested after taking 5 pain killers at once. Still stiff and sore the following days after the flight! I paid an extra $50 for the best upgrade and the seat doesn't even recline!!! WTF??"
Pros: "Timeliness of flight"
Cons: "Frontier's website is misleading and a bit of a scam. I don't know how they live with themselves with the website they run- I'm guessing very comfortably, :). -Tries to get you to pay for any seat you pick. Tries to make you pay for any bag you take on board...really quite weak. -The "skybar" which sounds cool, charges you for everything, yeah I'll pass on the 5 dollar drink of water, thanks. -Sorry my foot was in the aisle, I guess I should have paid another 50 dollars for foot space so it wouldn't inconvenience the flight attendant. -I'm 35 years old and can say flying used to be fun, like I am in my late 80s, thanks Frontier!"
Pros: "On time, courteous crew."
Cons: "Seats didn't recline"
Pros: "See above"
Cons: "After I booked my flight I found out there was $9 charge each way to select a seat and a $35 charge each way to carry on a bag. Unexpected charges, which made the overall cost not very competitive. Also charged for water and soda in flight. I will not fly Frontier again unless it happens to be the only airline serving my destination"
Pros: "Again, fine crew and on time"
Cons: "Again, very uncomfortable seats even on a short ride"
