Cons: "Even though its a short flight better food options for First Class would be appreciated."

Pros: "Good variety and quality meals during the flight as well as a super array of entertainment"
Cons: "The seats lack cushion so a 7 hour flight gets quite painfully after a while"

Pros: "Flight and crew were wonderful. Perfectly smooth landing!"
Cons: "I really wonder about the boarding procedure... isn't "back to front" more efficient? What is this Comfort +, Main Cabin 1, Main Cabin 2, Basic thing? Is that supposed to make you feel better because you paid for a seat selection?!"

Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "Flight didn’t leave Atlanta until after 8pm. Delta couldn’t/wouldn’t do anything to help with replacement flights to Madrid despite we were supposed to have 3 1/2 hours layover and had less than zero (the flight out left before the flight into Zurich was deplaned."

Pros: "No problems. Service was great and we got there slightly faster than anticipated"
Cons: "Flight duration but that’s impossible to change so other than that nothing :)"

Cons: "DTW to FLL, plane was delayed coming from BOS to DTW 5 hours for BOS weather. The plane arrived & they announced they would turn it around ASAP. They started the boarding process & then stopped it stating that a crew member had timed out. Delayed hour to FIND one. Shortly after delayed overnight."

Pros: "Nice smooth flight."
Cons: "Tiny seats. No entertainment offered."

Pros: "Smooth flight"

Pros: "N/a"
Cons: "The crew members were very rude and they called me an IDIOT!! Yes they did because the forced me to check my carry on bag and i didnt want they are racists"

Pros: "I didn’t"
Cons: "There was an issue when taxing to the runway and we had to be towed back for repairs. The problem was as we waited there was no AC for too long. The staff was also very unfriendly. 2 times they hit my seat with their cart. I was just not a great experience"

Pros: "The flight is short and easy."
Cons: "I always try to purchase an aisle seat. I feel like there is more room and I don’t feel trapped against a window. This flight a man with very broad shoulders sat in the middle seat. I felt like he should have paid for half my ticket since he sat in half my seat. Thankfully the flight is short. Had it been my second flight I would have been quite upset."

Cons: "Flight cancelled because of weather"

Pros: "Quick, efficient, affordable!"

Pros: "Large jet, attentive crew, on time."

Cons: "If we're going to be early, have a gate ready."

Cons: "Boarding on most airlines is a bit chaotic they always call out zones and often they aren't listed on your printed ticket otherwise was ok"

Pros: "Great Food. Good entertainment. I recommend the aisle seat if you have to go top the bathroom frequently. :-) I felt that the flight attendants were concerned about our comfort on the flights."
Cons: "I would have liked more of a music and movie selection."

Pros: "The crew was very friendly and had great humor."

Cons: "Crew allowed passenger to leave bag on floor between seats on emergency exit. This is a safety violation."

Pros: "The gate agents in New Bern were amazing at helping me find a seat that was next to an empty seat. I checked with the gate agent early and asked if she could accommodate my request (I'm a big girl, and any extra space on a plane is greatly appreciated!). Overall, I was very happy that they were very willing to help make my flight as enjoyable as possible."
Cons: "Nothing. Everything was great."

Pros: "The crew was very friendly and kept making rounds with water so we didn't have to get up looking for it. Free entertainment at our seats made the flight go by faster."
Cons: "No complaints, I was stuck in a middle seat but somebody has to sit there!"

Pros: "Even with the weather being bad, the flight crew handled the situation really well. No one on the plane freaked out which was awesome, so I'm happy with the way they handled it."
Cons: "The weather was pretty nasty so we had to be re-routed to Cleveland to get more gas before landing in Columbus. It definitely wasn't the airline's fault, but it still was annoying. Thankfully I didn't miss anything!"

Pros: "Flights were on time..."
Cons: "Worst seats ever. Uncomfortable. Didn't recline and were supposed to. Was told by the attendant "that's too bad. It's supposed to" when I mentioned it."

Pros: "All went well with every aspect of the flight."

Cons: "No food, no entertainment."

Pros: "Free meals! Free snacks! Free movies! Comfortable seats and friendly flight attendants!"

Cons: "Awful experience. Delta left us stranded on the runway for 3 hours. Pathetic airline."

Pros: "we got on another air conditioned plane"
Cons: "We initially were put on a plane with defective air conditioning.... it took 90 minutes to finally decide to put us on another plane. The older planes have hardly any room under the seat in the isle seats."

Pros: "Hospitable crew"
Cons: "Na, nothing special"

Cons: "Delayed and crews attitude. Also being seated next to someone when the plain is half empty"

Pros: "On time departure, clean plane, competent and professional flight attendants, pilot announcements were clear and relevant"
Cons: "Check in took forever. Delta reservations made some type of mistake when they cancelled our flight to CUN and I needed to rebook the flight. It took the CUN counter agent about 30 minutes to correct their mistake. Then, as we boarded our flight, the bar code reader at the gate indicated another error that the gate agent took about 10 minutes to correct. CUN Delta staff was great and we appreciated the efforts they made to direct us around the airport."

Pros: "Boarding time and schedules were as expected or faster and other than the food incident, good attention from the flight crew."
Cons: "No choice during for lunch since the flight crew didn't have enough meals to cover the preferences of the first class travelers."

Cons: "Delta delayed my flight so long that I'm now traveling another day."

Pros: "Flight attendants were very nice"
Cons: "Overbooking flights"

Pros: "Nice smooth, quick flight"

Pros: "On time arrival"

Cons: "It apparently was not noticed until the last minute that the plane parked at the designated gate was not the right plane. Just as we were ready to board, had to change gates. the announcement of new gate was not in clear English. Instead of saying 'C' as in Charlie, just C3, which sounded like a D, which would have been a concourse change. Little things, but they add up, when your previous flight was late on arrival."

Cons: "Last to board with a young child."

Cons: "experienced a 1hr mechanical delay. it would be nice if refreshments were served."

Cons: "crew coming in from another flight was late. Then, according to announcement our plane had been sitting 2 hours and they would have to call for power. It was already a late night flight, now delayed 1 1/2 hours leaving. The plane interior was hot, that helped with our displeasure."

Cons: "Boarding was delayed 30 minutes, with no explanation. Upon arrival, another airplane was in our gate, resulting in an additional 30 minute wait, buckled in my seat on the tarmac."

Cons: "No accommodation for delays and overnight stay in airport."

Cons: "The seats were so close together! I was between two men, and one was spitting tabaco into a cup. It was terrible."

Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "We had to walk outside to board the plane. My husband has two bad hips and we had to walk up a flight of stairs to board the plane. The plane was extremely small and our sits were located in the rear of the plane. The bathroom had an unpleasant odor."

Pros: "Attentive and friendly crew."

Cons: "No power outlets or USB ports on a 5+ hour flight. Not great for business."

Pros: "Flight was on time and prompt."
Cons: "Stayed on the run way for a bit"

Pros: "Flight was good, there was no entertaiment, so i put one, but the flight was only almost 4 hrs. At night."
Cons: "I like the service I got and the service I got. I have back surgery and walk with assistance and the lady that helped me a the the birding desk took care of my needs and it was so much appriciated.. Thank you."

Cons: "30 minutes late taking off. Therefore arrived late."

Pros: "The flight was delayed by more than two hours which caused us (me, wife, 4yo, and 7mo) to miss our connection from LAX to HNL. We had to stay the night in LA and take a morning flight to HNL. But despite the delay, the gate agent in Charlotte did a good job of updating people and remained very polite even when it was clear people were getting frustrated and starting to get sharp with him. Pilots did a good job of trying to make up as much time as possible. I can't remember how much time they shaved off but I think it was more than 20 minutes. Customer service in LA was solid too. Went to CSD to get our tickets changed. They had already changed our flight to a 8 AM flight. We asked if we could take a later flight because of the kids and he was able to accommodate. They also gave us vouchers for 3 meals and a night at the Holiday Inn. Having a delayed flight is never fun but the AA staff was amazing throughout."

Pros: "On time Friendly attendants Great service Mike in First Class was awesome"
Cons: "No complaints"

Cons: "AC didn't work and no beverage service or WiFi"

Pros: "Pretty much everything! Great service, staff was friendly, courteous, smooth trip."
Cons: "Not a thing!"

Cons: "Middle seat and one of the last ones on. Enough said"

Pros: "Im very upset with the flight"
Cons: "What you guys did its unfair I paid for a reservation. The way you run the business its not right"

Cons: "British airways?"

Pros: "The flight crew was great and it was a very smooth landing."
Cons: "Had to pay extra for seats so we could sit together, near the front of the plane (not really, and no bathroom nearby, very small seats with zero legroom). we were delayed twice (40m then 1h10m) then told to go to a different terminal because now our flight WAS leaving on time! so we hauled over there only to be delayed again several times. we know it was a weather thing, but just wish there was more accurate info about when we would actually take off. seats on outgoing flight from SFO to CLT were GREAT, very roomy, comfortable. Coming back- not so much."

Pros: "Short trips so no entertainment is offered so it's n/a"

Pros: "I loved not having to change planes."
Cons: "It was VERY cold on the plane."

Pros: "Tthe crew was very friendly"
Cons: "No food"

Pros: "Nothing. Someday the airline industry will be disrupted and we'll all remember this and say, "can you believe what we used to put up with, and how expensive it was?!""
Cons: "No decent food available, they ran out. People allowed to play movies loudly with no headphones for 5 hours straight. Uncomfortable seats with no cushioning."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Massive delay. Waited over 4 hours to get on plane and more wait time on the tarmac. Unhappy flight attendants"

Cons: "Total incompetence. Navigational system broken, two hours on the tarmac, unboarded, then reboarded one at a time, then out to the tarmac and then back to the gate to do FAA paperwork before finally being over 4 hours late. And they don't really care. Very sad."

Pros: "(1) The flight was overbooked and boarded late. (2) The crew and flight attendants flying to NY had more baggage space than the passengers. (3) The pilot and crew were excellent and I enjoyed my overall flight."
Cons: "Stop overbooking the plan. I don't mind paying more"

Pros: "I got home safely"
Cons: "The airport was super crowded and the space in the plane was cramped (and I am a small person - 120 pounds). The plane was not clean and I actually picked up a virus on the plane and am still sick. I wiped down all of the surface area around my seat and still got sick. Airline travel is miserable and crowded and there is minimum service."

Pros: "Nice flight attendant A full can of soda"
Cons: "Board on the tarmac Tiny plane Hardly any overhead storage Had to sit on the taxiway for another 30 min once we landed"

Pros: "Customer service was excellent. Smooth flight. Early."
Cons: "In Charlotte the kiosks were not acting right. The agents were still exceptional but you could tell they were frustrated"

Cons: "The cookies and it was cold. Jesse"

Pros: "Updated interior. Comfortable chairs. Friendly staff. Pilot communicated well."
Cons: "No charging capabilities for devices. Limited food options."

Cons: "The seats were cramped and uncomfortable. The entertainment options are very limited on a cross-country trip. I also don't see how there are no charging options at all."

Pros: "the flight attendants were very professional on this flight. the lead attendant was very personable when giving announcements and going through the safety procedures on the public address system. the other two attendants were also very professional in their services as well."
Cons: "flight 1920 was almost an hour late with boarding. I am extremely upset because I paid an extra $75.00 on day of to get home earlier but ended up getting home at the same time that I would have on my original flight because the flight was late and I missed my shuttle because 1920 was late boarding. I should be reimbursed SOMETHING for my inconvenience...especially after paying $75.00 extra for an earlier flight."

Pros: "I think they were holding the plane for a connection flight arrival."

Pros: "The plane was sleek and clean. I had a good amount of room even in coach!"

Pros: "It was a fairly routine flight. Could use a more substantial snack for a four hour flight."
Cons: "While waiting for our baggage in Phoenix, we noticed a few random bags with tears, rips and clothes hanging out. Then we saw our suitcase. The zipper was torn away from the lining so that it no longer closes all the way. There items hanging out of the gap. What was happening in the basement that caused at least 4 damaged bags?"

Pros: "Del"
Cons: "Delayed an hour. Don't think I've had a single American flight on time. No food or movies on international flight. No blankets or pillows."

Pros: "Outstanding crew and pilot dealt with some tough weather issues"

Pros: "They sat my family together and the crew was amazing."
Cons: "The seats are really uncomfortable and the flight was really packed with all this covid stuff."

Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable"

Pros: "Good crew"

Pros: "We had a really nice crew."

Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable"

Pros: "The crew was very nice,,"
Cons: "Im not sure, everything was just so nice,, more chatting mabye talkin more,,"

Pros: "This flight itself met all expectations and I am very pleased with Allegiant."
Cons: "Communication & Technology @ check-in. I was never able to check in using the Allegiant phone app. Reason never communicated. Unable to check in online. Finally after a long hold over the phone I reached an agent who explained the system was updating. Bad set up. Could have been communicated!"

Pros: "Crew was nice for the most part."
Cons: "Didn’t leave on time. Would be nice to get something complimentary for all the wasted time. Would like to be able to watch something"

Pros: "The crew was good , plane was delayed and late for departure. Second flight was delayed by 2 1/2 hours , I just can’t catch a break !!"
Cons: "I could not log onto the website and check my carryon bag , cost me $50 at check in. It would not recognize my number for the first flight. I’m a known traveler on Frontier so I did log in with them ."

Pros: "Nice pilot and crew."
Cons: "The warning about alcohol was a bit sarcastic, but I guess in today's world people who have acted out are the real culprits..."

Pros: "loading was smooth, departure was a bit early, arrival in Cedar Rapids was about 30 minutes early!!"

Pros: "It was great"

Cons: "Lousy airline. Left gate late and unfriendly crew. Wanted to charge me for carry on."

Pros: "They gave us a soda in the waiting area, because we were so delayed. Flight attendants were friendly."
Cons: "Flight was delayed about 2.5 hours, with no explanation or information given. Loading was extremely slow, hot, and uncomfortable."

Pros: "Crew was very friendly, very polite unlike the United flights I have taken. I was told the space would be uncomfortable but it was absolutely fine for the short flight."
Cons: "No beverage service. Not even water is offered."

Pros: "The pilot landed smooth."
Cons: "We were boarded and waiting on the stuffy hot plane with no air. The seats were so small and tight and then we had to get off the plane and take all of our belongings and waited another 3 hours to get back on the plane after they had told us something was wrong with the plane. It was a horrible experience. And we received nothing for the inconvenience when I had to cancel my work day so I had no compensation and lost clients because of cancelling last minute on them."

Pros: "Would highly recommend the connection and the Allegiant jet was a fairly new Airbus, very comfortable."

Cons: "Extra charges for everything, even water"

Pros: "Friendly Crew. Staff did expedite our checking bags to make our flight when we asked about our flight that started boarding early and made sure our bags made the flight. Excellent pilots, trip went seamless from wheels up to wheels down."
Cons: "Boarding started 30 minutes earlier than first notified as, Long lines to check bags."

Pros: "On the way there and back the staff was friendly, the flight was smooth and and overall everything was just great. This was my first time flying with Allegiant and I will definitely do it again."

Pros: "Boarding speed and flight"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats, does not recline, even water is for sale."

Pros: "Seating assignment before the flight. Direct flights."
Cons: "Felt nickel and dimed to death by extra fees for trip insurance, luggage, and picking advanced seating. Ended up spending more than if we had just chose another airline."

Pros: "I had 44 min they wouldn't give me my boarding pass then the flight was delayed to 5:30 and they still wouldn't allow me up."

Cons: "After the horrendous delays getting to my destination I just bit the bullet and bought new tickets (duplicates) on a different airline to get back home-- rather than risk a repeat experience. Ended up costing an extra $300 but at least I didn't have to spend an entire day in an airport trying to keep my 7 year old from losing his mind."

Pros: "Efficient check in, no hidden fees (all were explained via email well before the flight), fast boarding, take off and unloading. Time left and arrived on time. The staff was extremely friendly."
Cons: "The seats were bare bones and not very comfortable but I guess that's what helps keep costs down."

Pros: "No much"
Cons: "The flight was over 5 hours late. We were supposed to leave at 6:06 PM and didn't leave until about 11:10 PM. We were supposed to get into Asheville at about 8:00 PM, but finally arrived about 1:00 AM. I fly this route frequently and Allegiant has a terrible problem with on-time flights and communications with passengers waiting for their flights. I am not certain what the problem is, but it is a significant issue with them. Captain was "bubbly" and upbeat without properly managing the passengers' expectations. Bad public relations."

Pros: "The price for the flight and the direct flight make it worthwhile."
Cons: "Boarding process was completely chaotic; they had two lines, one for people with paper boarding passes and one for those with electronic passes, but they just let everyone line up all at once which was way too crazy. It needs to be better organized."

Pros: "The crew was plesant and helpful."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 35 mins. Then we couldnt get luggage when we arrived because of lighting. We were told to go one place and our luggage was taken somewhere else."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I paid for 1A. Was moved because "the crew needed the seat" to the middle. There were SO many open seats. Was unacceptable."

Pros: "didn't like anything"
Cons: "delays"

Pros: "My book"
Cons: "The seats"

Pros: "First time flyer on this airline... I loved that it was a DIRECT flight halfway across the country."
Cons: "Where to start... i guess for starters EVERYTHING is an upcharge. I was suprissed the seatbelts were included! Less legroom than a Cesna 152 and surrounded by 159 of my closest friends. And i mean SURROUNDED. That cabin is SO tight! So tight in fact the seats are a blow mold plastic with roughly 1.5" of foam and fabric. Think go-cart bucket seat with some foam rubber and pleather. Then there's luggage... My carry on bag (that I've used for 15yrs) was too big for the jig at the counter so got to check it for an additional $10 (above the $30 i had to pay to bring it) and they charged me $40 for my original check bag. The hitch is that they only allow 40lbs ($1/lb) for that check bag when the rest of the industry says 50lbs is the norm. Oops, gotta pay for that too! And wait for it... sodas are $2 in flight!"

Pros: "Easy airport. Easy for rental return, going through security, and walking to the terminal. Quick loading time. Nice, clean plane with plenty of on-board crew to accomodate."
Cons: "Damage to checked baggage from Mesa to SGF. A quality, thick, hard-sided suitcase developed a crack in the side. Abnormal pressure would have had to be applied to cause this type of damage. Cheaper or soft-sided luggage would have experienced damage to the contents. Unfortunately, I did not check the luggage before leaving the airport to file a complaint."

Pros: "Fast flight. Good climate control"
Cons: "Flight attendants could smile or be a little more friendly. Overall good though. Could add wifi to flights."

Pros: "No Frills Business Travel Good price No hassle Everything on-time and efficient. A choice if I want extras including baggage, seat assignments, etc. Airport convenience"

Pros: "Arrived an hour before flight. Check in took 25 min and tsa 30 minutes. Tried to go through expedite line but agent refused to let me even though flight was leaving in 30 minutes. I have received better treatment in new York airports than here in Myrtle Beach. Who would have thought. There were 3 others that missed the flight. Why would they not just let's be expedited?"
Cons: "See above"

Pros: "No lay overs"

Pros: "Cabin crew was very helpful and polite. One in particular expressed a great sense of humor throughout the flight and had a great rapport w/ passengers. Flight was on-time. Fare was $111 compared to around $375 to Orlando. I was able to fit this flight into my scheduled so saved the company $$."
Cons: "Can't blame Allegiant for a noisy child, but there was a child across the aisle from me who shrieked and talked loudly THE WHOLE FLIGHT. I was trying to sleep and was NOT pleased. I like a good fare, but selling a can of Coke on the flight for $2 seems a bit extreme. Glad there are cut-rate airlines out there as an option, but I won't be flying them any more than necessary."

Pros: "Crew polite, clean plane"
Cons: "Late, delayed. Price deceptive, extra charge to reserve seat and carry-on bag."

Cons: "Muy mal aerolínea"

Pros: "Airline was great. Told us right away they were only going to do one drink service so we could order two. Left on time and had no issues. Would definitely fly with them again. Even though you have to pay to check a bag, it's still a better deal than any other airline out there. People need to stop complaining about the extra fees, do you want cheap or not."
Cons: "Nothing. Was exactly what I expected for a $35.00 flight."

Pros: "The price, found a round trip from Albuquerque to Austin 3 weeks ahead for 74$. I couldn't believe it"

Pros: "Everything was fine"
Cons: "Hard landing"

Cons: "The flight was late and we were not given updates until the time we should have been taking off."

Pros: "Very friendly staff very attentive"
Cons: "Very small and uncomfortable seating will probably fly Delta for the same price"

Pros: "Replace 1 star ratings with na since offered."

Cons: "That you guys so tight that would not even offer free water....."

Pros: "It was cheap and was no different than other flights I have taken."
Cons: "Their station at the airport didn't open until about an hour before my flight."

Cons: "Roomier Seats more isle space and comfortable seating. Better head sets"

Cons: "Getting a partner airline, cancelled flight, missed intercontinental connecting flight, missing an important occasion, missing an entire day of vacation, no willingness to find more suitable outcomes."

Pros: "The Way the customer service guy, Derek, handled the situation in Denver, CO, was excellent I'd really give him a star, went above and beyond my expectations. Put me on the next flight and gave me a food voucher."
Cons: "The first flight got delayed, was supposed to work night shift, was late, had to call in sick, and not sure what my manager will do after this."

Cons: "I would have liked to arrive home before 12 noon but due to United delaying my fligh twice and not being able to make the connection in washington . I had to plead with them to put me on a direct flight to Newark which made me fly another carrier "American airlines". I'm not sure what the issue was for the delays but it was frustrated."

Pros: "The leg from Denver to vegas was awesome"
Cons: "The first leg didn't have any snacks and a cold continental breakfast. American and Delta's breakfast is much nicer. But worth the price for that portion of the leg."

Pros: "The agent in charlotte. Due to my delayed flight which caused all my other flights to get re-booked - she went above amd beyond to help get me on a flight with my friends"
Cons: "Almost everyrhing - first flight delayed which caused all my flights to get rebooked. Was told when I flew feom charlotte to phoenix connecting flight would be at 1:59. Landed and found out delayed for 6 hrs. Should have originally arrived in Honolulu at 5:30, disn't get there till 1:00 am their time. Ridiculous -"

Pros: "was"

Cons: "Flight massively delayed. Missed my connection. And the next flight. If they had called ahead at the gate would have made the next one, instead had to sleep in the airport overnight."

Pros: "Will bw traveling to chicago then to iowa"
Cons: "Flight delay and itenirary changed"

Pros: "Flight was delayed and Captain explained reason as Newark Airport Traffic Control. Further delay was experienced after taxiing and Captain kept us informed. Seats were marginally ok and flight crew was attentive. Had a soda and a small bag of pretzels. Overall, it was an ok flight."

Pros: "The flight attendants were excellent! They really communicated with the passengers regarding connecting flights and flight time delays."
Cons: "Way too small and skimpy seats, I felt like I was in a jump seat getting ready to jump out with a parachute!"

Pros: "Smaller plane, quick luggage delivery on arrival, 20 minutes early arrival time"

Pros: "The staff and crew were very helpful, especially in helping catch my connection. Which leads to the dislike."
Cons: "Nothing but delays. Before we boarded...delay. Before we left the gate...delay. Before we left the taxiway...delay. Before we landed...delay. Many on the flight missing, or having tight connections."

Pros: "Nothing!!!"
Cons: "Our flight from Charlotte to Chicago was horrible!!! It felt as if a trainee was flying our plane. Landing was so bad that I threw my feet onto the back of the seat in front of me to brace myself for landing."

Pros: "Comfortable seating, plenty of leg room"

Pros: "Nothing I wasn't on it I missed it because of you"
Cons: "My plans for travel were ruined because when I arrived at the airport for my flight I was told it was too late to check my bags, therefore I had to be placed on a later flight which then set off a chain reaction where I lost my rental car and missed various meetings at the event I was supposed to be at my final destination. The main issue was that when I purchased my ticket throughout Kayak YOU NEVER SPECIFIED THAT I SHOULD CHECK MY BAGS 45 MINUTES EARLY OR I WOULD LOOSE MY FLIGHT. YOUR LACK OF CLEAR INSTRUCTION SCREWED UP MY TRIP"

Pros: "Flying first class"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "I did not like sitting on the runway for 40 minutes I did not like to have to run to catch the next flight I'm 63 years old I do you dont like to run to the next plane"

Pros: "Crew great"
Cons: "Wi-Fi charge sucks"

Pros: "The service"

Pros: "Courteous attendants and overall great flight"
Cons: "The mixed trail mix, honestly that's all :)"

Pros: "Boarding went smoothly."
Cons: "AgainThe person next to me was so obese she needed two extenqders. She was taking up her seat and most of her neighbors, she was in the middle. I was literally pinned against the aisle arm rest. It was a full flight and I wasn't able to be moved. For the entire flight I was cramped and pinned with no where to go."

Pros: "The people on the flight with me"
Cons: "The flight attendants were cocky and then my flight was worse overall my flights in all were horrible with united . I've never been sick on a plain and I got so sick for the landings"

Cons: "Because of plane problems I had to wait until the next day to fly home. Very inconvenient."

Pros: "all went well...no issues"

Pros: "Arrival was late and United held the connecting flight! Thanks United."

Pros: "Flight attendants were friendly."
Cons: "The most uncomfortable seat I have ever ridden on a flight. My back and posterior were in pain for over a day after the flight. Terrible treatment of passengers to pack a few more people in like cattle. Thinnest seats I have ever seen that felt and looked like hard plastic. This was an Embraer 175 jet...will never fly on one of these again. Had a hard landing in excellent weather. Flew the same route back to Charlotte on an American Airlines A320...these seats were comfortable and the landing was smooth even with a 20mph crosswind."

Pros: "No-thing!!!"
Cons: "I was traveled no with my wife and my son to Des Moines andI documented our 3 bags in Mexico City and "the first surprise" was that they charged in Mexico n I he front desk about $27 USD per bag...it seemed that the bags were also passengers and " needed to pay"... The big other surprise was when we got to Des Moines and realized all the bags were opened!...my wife's jewelry was stolen!!!! UNITED AIRLINES SUCK!!!!!"

Pros: "Delayed Flight, late flight attendant that delayed flight 1.5 hr. Causing many to miss overseas connections. Changed arrival terminal."
Cons: "Explained flight delay due to one attendant not showing up. Needs to be a better back up system."

Pros: "Ease of security and boarding. Friendly and accommodating staff. No concerns at all."

Cons: "The plane was delayed again n again from ,7:30 pm to 11:45pm"

Pros: "on time and very polite.. good flight"

Pros: "Everything went well."
Cons: "Well to start off, this was my very first time flying on United and both flights had minor trouble. The first flight had a delay that almost caused me to miss the next flight. The second flight had a minor delay but I made it home at the scheduled time. Other than that the flight was very good."

Pros: "Despite weather delay, the flight crew was very energetic and in a positive mood."

Cons: "They suspended my ticket claiming I was a NO SHOW when that was not the case @ all!"

Cons: "Nothing not to like!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "There was a delayed my flight, arrived late, delayed in the plane getting off, nothing but delays."

Pros: "I flew from OKC to Houston and then home to DSM. The price was terrific for a one way flight. I bought at 2:30 am for $130. I checked later the next morning and the price was $455! United Airlines is a great airline. There was a wonderful agent who helped me at the kiosk for check-in. Very friendly. The flight attendant on this flight was very personable."

Pros: "Great wheelchair service for my disability."

Cons: "The plane was delayed."

Pros: "Flights were on time..."

Pros: "everyone was quick, efficient, and customer oriented. seats were comfortable and the snacks were nice."

Cons: "Last row and packed. United not willing to allow you to upgrade while in the plane, and their mobile app does not offer it either. Not to mention the other crew member dead heading and being less than helpful. Customer Service is not their thing."

Cons: "I flew to Charlotte, NC last week from Houston with my husband for a funeral. The flight there went smoothly and we used the United app to check in and get our boarding passes. When it came time to check in for our flight home my husband was able to get his boarding pass, but they said mine was unavailable. Obviously concerned I called United. After being on hold for over an hour I was able to speak to a representative. I was told that I hadn't show up for my flight to Charlotte... so they had canceled the returning flight. Not only was I on that flight my boarding pass was scanned twice (one at security and once during boarding). The representative then told me to go to the airport the next day and "try" to explain what happened. I don't know if this was some sort of glitch in the system, but I was very concerned and upset that someone could be on a flight with no record of them being on the plane... and that I was having to spend 2 hours trying to figure out if I could go home after a very stressful day... during a time when I should have been with my family. The next day I had to show up the the airport extra early while the representative there tried to figure out how to reactivate my ticket. Overall, an awful experience... I don't think I will be flying with United again anytime soon."

Pros: "Everything, service, timing. Great job"

Pros: "Everything was fine. I have a small suggestion , why don't you have direct flights from charlotte to tampa or Tampa to Charlotte for bit cheaper fares?"

Pros: "Crew was fantastic, went above and beyond to ensure my comfort and satisfaction with every aspect of my flight."
Cons: "My vehicle keys were removed from my checked luggage requiring to pay extensively to have a locksmith come to the airport the next day to create new keys. I slept in the parking lot due to the fact the locksmith could only open the doors and could not cut new electronic keys until morning. I am extremely enraged over this incident. I know the keys were contained in this article due to the fact that the Keychain was left on top, without keys. I could not imagine why someone would remove these keys from my Keychain that holds only those keys. I would like to hear your openion on the matter. Thanks, Alexander Kruse"

Pros: "They Canceled My and did not refund my money Never will use United Ever Again Scum Buckets"
Cons: "Give me my money back"

Pros: "Great flight from Washington to GrandRapids! We flew into GRR on a evening where there was a winter storm advisory and had a smooth trip all the way. United had a very good pilot and crew that evening."

Pros: "The flight itself was fine. Service was good and everything went well once on the flight."
Cons: "The flight was delayed over 3 hours."

Pros: "Not much to like."
Cons: "Not much to like: late boarding, Late takeoff, Late arrival Smaller jet with 6 seats per row Not much to like."

Pros: "When we were flying from phili to Charlotte they put my boyfriend's bag in the slot to see if we woyld have to pay for our carry on. His was good. Mine was a little bigger but because i had my chemo medication in it they did not charge me. When i was returning from Charlotte they charged us for both bags. I told her they didn't in phili and she said every airline does it. So maybe something should be written in ur policy. What is the sence of taking a carry on when you are going to pay $90.00 round trip. Makes no sence to me. I hope u do reply back. Other than that everything was good."
Cons: "Read the above . and now i c the reviews and everyone had the same problem. Getting charged!!!"

Cons: "I cancelled my flight a week before the time of departure they said that it'll cost me $99 to cancel the flight and $86.45 was supposed to be refunded. the lady told me it will take 7 to 10 business days when I called 3 days later on the 10th day I called and the gentleman told me that I don't get a refund I get a credit of the $86.45 that I can use to October 7th to use on any flight. My problem with that is I don't fly often and I had to cancel that due to my job. I feel that if I cancel a flight way in advance before the flight is being departed I should be able to get my refund back I'm sorry to say it is but I would never use this airline company again because if I knew that the first time. I wouldn't have done it. Oh I also found out because I keep getting updates from kayak of the flight that the flight was supposed to been I believe was 8:30 p.m. but due to rain it didn't leave Philadelphia Pennsylvania until around 11:45 p.m. so I'm kind of glad now I didn't go because my family member who I was going to visit would have been very upset because they had to stay up an extra 4 hours and they had to go to work the next morning."

Pros: "I got there safely."
Cons: "The crew did not help people with bags and barked when people opened doors that were closed. There was no entertainment and no complimentary snacks or even water."

Pros: "Simple and easy loved my seats."
Cons: "No offer of beverage even water."

Pros: "I bought this flight last minute to attend a funeral. It was the cheapest flight I could find."
Cons: "Seats do not recline. Staff very unprofessional, talking about going out an getting wasted in Denver."

Pros: "Easy to check and but confusing about whether we had to go to kiosk on not."
Cons: "Had to pay for drinks and snacks"

Pros: "Everyone was really nice!"
Cons: "Well I paid for a reclining seat and didn't get it.... I should of paid regular price"

Pros: "The flight went well and the customer service was great."
Cons: "We were 1 hour delayed but luckily I was in no hurry"

Pros: "Price"

Pros: "Flight Agents at Frontier at the airport were very polite and professional."
Cons: "Kayak was happy to take may money but did NOT book a flight for me with Frontier Airlines. Frontier agents could find my name in the computer but could not find a booking for me. I ended up having to pay fully price at the ticket counter to get a flight to Denver. This is not Frontiers fault, but Kayak did me dirty."

Cons: "Absolutely terrible flight. I will never fly Fronteir again and will tell everyone I know to never fly this airline."

Pros: "I feel this airline does an excellent job boarding at the beginning and end of the flight."
Cons: "Bags took a long time to be delivered."

Pros: "Nice and cool on the plane...It was a hot day."
Cons: "No frills...flight attendants did not bust their tails to make sure anyone had drinks, etc. but still worth $79!!"

Pros: "Staff was Friendly and The Price was Great"
Cons: "There wasn't anything"

Pros: "Watching the plane arrive to pick us up. Once in place the pilot had to stick his head out of front window to see why they couldn't fit for the arm of disembarkment platform!"
Cons: "I was never notified of delay"

Pros: "Flight was smooth"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"

Pros: "The price, availabilitu"

Pros: "Getting OFF the plane"
Cons: "Seats are incredibly uncomfortable and did not recline. Frontier also changed my reservation/ departure date to leave 24 hours ahead of the day I wanted. For the life of me I will never figure out why. Baggage fees are stupid. Lack of transparency. I asked myself many times why why why I choose to book on Frontier. I guess you really do get what you pay for."

Cons: "They don't tell you ahead of time that they will charge you for a CARRYON. Not even a complementary beverage!!"

Cons: "Very friendly"

Pros: "Nothing at all."
Cons: "The outbound flight was delayed only three hours. The return flight was delayed three hours, after which we boarded and waited. After another hour we taxied to the runway and returned. I am grateful we did not take off with a defunct left-engine. We taxied back to the airport and de-planed--but only after being instructed not to talk to the other passengers. (Really.) The flight was not cancelled, even when the plane was towed to the hangar. Finally, after six hours, Frontier offered a refund--as they had no interest in placing us on another airline that was going to the same destination. I rented a car and drove from Charlotte to Philadelphia to retrieve my own car from the airport so I could arrive home 15 hours after my scheduled arrival. Frontier couldn't care less. NEVER again."

Cons: "We had to pay for another ticket to fly home. I few United airlines home. So I put out more money for my trip and missed another day of work."

Pros: "Clean plans and crew was great."
Cons: "Flight delayed due to security check."

Pros: "The price"
Cons: "More variety of times for flights"

Cons: "Seats were very uncomfortable they didn't even recline on top of they charge you for every single thing."

Pros: "They were friendly and assisting. Boarding was smooth."
Cons: "Super uncomfortable after 3 hours"

Pros: "being on time"
Cons: "had to pay for snacks and pop, etc Free would be nicer."

Pros: "Left on time, arrived early"
Cons: "Long wait for bags"

Pros: "Crew was great. Everything went well"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Workers are not compassionate at all with people. We had a death in our family and got that flight two hours before for an exaggerated amount and when we got to the airport everyone made it more difficult than ever for us even when we told them our circumstances"

Pros: "Ontime"
Cons: "Initially chose based on low ticket price. When booking, low fare was unavailable and found seating was all extra except middle. At airport check-in, advised we had to pay $45 per bag for our carry ons. None of these charges are clarified during booking through Third party. Ended up spending $125 more than United Airlines flight. I will NEVER fly Frontier again!"

Pros: "Seat was comfortable. I had enough room with long legs!"
Cons: "I did not like having to wait in line at ticket counter to check my bag. It would be great to have a line for just checking bags at the ticket counter. I stood in that line and watched people doing seat selection, finding IDs, paying for stuff. A kiosk machine would be good too. If you're going to buy more planes fix the incoming passenger issues."

Pros: "Not a thing"
Cons: "Trays were the size of my plane ticket had to sit laptop in lap, had to pay $6 for a diet coke when I thought it was free and couldn't return it because attendant opened it. By far the worst airline ever"

Pros: "On time."

Cons: "Expensive and deceptive baggage practices. Rude employees. Substandard seat comfort. Nickel and dimed for everything. Mechanical flight delay. Confrontational stewardess arguing with sick traveler in my seat row."

Pros: "Crew was much more personable and concerned that my luggage would not make it on board because of the late departure from my previous flight."
Cons: "Same no-frills flight."

Pros: "Not kept informed. Everything was an additional cost.Information was not disclosed prior to the ticket purchase."
Cons: "Additional cost for carry-on bags, snacks, soft drinks etc."

Pros: "Pleasant crew"

Pros: "It is great compani...I fly safe"

Cons: "plane was on time even early. very good for todays air travel. however the seats and plane was very dirty. stewardesses very so unhappy and nasty."

Pros: "The other passengers."
Cons: "'Pay for what you want' means pay for literally everything. This includes sodas. Seats are unbelievably uncomfortable."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight was delayed due to plane issues"

Pros: "Frontier refunded my entire trip."
Cons: "As others have mentioned, they slapped on very deceptive fees at the last minute for things that no other airline charges for like choosing a seat assignment and a carry-on bag. The fees completely negated any savings from booking with them in the first place. Also, the online check-in system was clunky and took longer than it should have, and then my flight was cancelled because they couldn't get their act together with scheduling two days after a storm hit Denver. I had to re-book my flight with another carrier which ended up costing $1200. Not a bargain!"

Pros: "The flight was quick and the crew was mostly friendly. Trenton was a nice slow paced airport to land in"
Cons: "I didn't like having to wait on the plane to unload because another plane was unloading at the same time and Trenton only unloads one at a time. Almost missed my rental car"

Pros: "Uneventful flight"
Cons: "I asked the attendant for water, but he never brought it to me."

Pros: "The staff was helpful and polite. Although plane was delayed it still arrived in good time."
Cons: "Not much leg room. Paying to pick your seat is ridiculous when traveling with family."

Cons: "The captain said no gates were available so they delayed our flight for an hour after they let us board the plane. Almost all of the gates in the terminal were available when we got to Philadelphia. Frontier doesn't give out free drinks or peanuts on the flight. They also charge $5 extra if you don't check your bag online. The seat doesn't recline. Frontier is by far the worst airline ever!!!!"

Pros: "Other than waiting a long time, everything else was fine."
Cons: "The flight left 40 minutes late and then once I got to baggage claim, it took 30 minutes for the bags to come out. Extremely long delay made me late to where I was going."

Pros: "Not sure what you mean by "Food" and "Entertainment". There were none and none expected. Frontier is a funky airline. Its website is misleading. After you've bought your ticket, it suggests that you have to pay extra for a seat and for your bags (even carry-on). I was a first-time Frontier customer and I didn't pay those extras on-line and never was charged for them. I'm not complaining -- they just need to get their act together. All in all, a decent routine air travel experience."
