Nice brand new plane for a short hop flight!
Seatback unit very difficult to make work.
I really dislike the tendency of delta to use small planes for major routes. It really isn’t comfortable to be crammed into a 737 for almost 6 hours. They have larger planes for routes like Lax —> HNL. They should use them.
The check-in boarding counter only had 1 employee, the flight was running 20mins late.
Delayed departure. Made me have to pay more for parking and had to call out of work.
Anyone that purchased a Delta 1st Class seat should have access to the Delta Sky Club. My wife and I purchased 1st Class tickets for a Delta flight from SeaTac to Washington Dulles but were denied entrance to the SeaTac Delta Sky Club because we did have an American Express card.
Cons: "This plane was too full for social distancing. I was really skeptical about this flight as it relates to the COVID pandemic."
Pros: "The crew was good, and the airline tried to make our wait in the airport as comfortable as possible."
Cons: "The four-hour delay was really hard. Since it was in DC, I don't know why it took so long to get another plane."
Pros: "great everything!"
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."
Cons: "The flight was delayed over two hours"
Pros: "Information communicated about delays."
Cons: "- more communication (any!) about bag status when landed - flight delay due to too many/too heavy baggage. Long delay was said to be due to making sure our baggage would accompany destination. Upon arrival, bag was left in NYC but this wasn't communicated. No info on bag status at airport or via ema"
Cons: "First class seats were too close together. It was very difficult to get out of you seat into the aisle. Food was not what it should have been for 1st class There was no wall between 1st class and coach giving little privacy when I worked my laptop. it was in direct view of the middle seat in coach"
Pros: "Very good"
Cons: "Seat assignments should have be provided at check in."
Pros: "The crew was dealing with NOVA/DC residents"
Pros: "Flight attendants were very friendly."
Pros: "Coming from Europe Alitalia and Delta did an EXCELLENT job at assisting the passengers get rid of their luggage just as soon as we were done going through customs... I don't usually fly on this route, but I thought it was perfect. Transfer between Delta terminal was a breeze too..."
Cons: "I usually don't fly from JFK. The food court was expensive (18 dollars base price from a burger seems a high even for an airport. I don't fly from NY normally - so maybe I need to tune my expectation for the locale, and it may have NOTHING to do with the airline company."
Pros: "Got first class upgraded. Very nice service!"
Cons: "We left 8am from JFK. Wish the crew had mentioned the 30 minutes waiting time to take off, given the 15?planes in front of us in line to do the same. I was very much needing to use the restroom about 15 minutes into it! I was very uncomfortable"
Pros: "The service is very good from the beginning. The flight attendant is very caring thanks so much."
Pros: "With all the competition among airlines and the cutbacks we suffer as customers Delta manages to make you feel like you matter still. Timely boarding, actual help with finding seats making boarding efficient (not just hurrying you along), updates from the cockpit that you could hear and understand, multiple choices in snacks-one even a healthy option, staff that was friendly and interested in making it a good experience not one that seemed bothered they had to work."
Cons: "The aircraft is too old, MD-88. I don't know how Delta is flying that type of aircraft. Is very risky"
Pros: "Another safe flight. Crew was very attentive."
Cons: "Flight cancelled due to weather that was never bad but on the potential of bad weather. Had to scramble so my 18 year old son was not stranded overnight in a strange place and Delta does not help. Only rebooked a flight itinerary for the next day for a 4 hour flight with connections on a 1 hour direct flight. Spent an hour on line to figure out what to do. #neverdelta"
Cons: "Plane delayed 4 times for a total of 4 hours"
Cons: "My flight was delayed, which would have caused me to miss my connecting flight. The customer service person was not at all helpful, and told me there were no other flights available on any airline until the next day. However, I was able to go online and book another flight immediately...which means that she was either being disingenuous or actively undermining efforts to get me home in a timely fashion. Very disappointing and as a SkyMiles member would have thought there would be some level of common courtesy dealing with a non-weather related delay that drastically impacted my travel plans."
Pros: "The flight for getting us therw"
Cons: "No food and no entertainment"
Pros: "Two ladies working in the aisles were very pleasant and nice"
Cons: "Takeoff accelerated too much... nicer to have a longer launch process"
Pros: "On time. Quick and easy flight!"
Pros: "Good customer service"
Pros: "The crew was friendly, relaxed, made everything seem like a breeze"
Pros: "Delta made the experience great"
Cons: "Flight was delayed almost two hours"
Pros: "Everything went smoothly."
Cons: "Like ALL planes today, too crowded."
Pros: "I could be wrong, but the seats were very comfortable (for a plane) and I felt my knees weren't as close to the seat in front of me than other airlines. So that's a plus."
Cons: "Every flight was 100% full. Inadequate overhead space. I felt I was being herded like cattle. It is NOT a pleasurable experience flying with Delta."
Pros: "The boarding agents were especially helpful and friendly to my disabled wife, travelling in a wheelchair."
Pros: "Comfortable flight, ample leg room, and the chairs were pretty plush. Comfort+ is pretty nice"
Cons: "On my first flight they forgot to turn the wifi on. I have unlim data but obviously can't use while in air; no big though."
Pros: "flight attendants were great."
Cons: "not enough leg room and space. The business class should be at the minimum for economy."
Pros: "The flight crew were really nice and I was really comfortable in the Comfort+ section of the plane. It's a nice upgrade for Delta and hope the other airlines follow suit. Granted I had a very active infant, I didn't have any problems."
Pros: "Free meals! Free snacks! Free movies! Comfortable seats and friendly flight attendants!"
Pros: "The crew was polite and friendly"
Cons: "My second plane had sooo much moisture coming from the cooling system it looked like the passengers were getting gased and I kept getting wet from water condensation falling on me in a window seat as I tried to sleep from having such an early flight to begin with only to be told it's delayed 3 hrs without explanation."
Pros: "We have been flying Delta more often lately. Great service, newer planes in and out of Alaska, and affordable first class tickets. Snack basket had chocolate bars..."
Cons: "Short 3 hour flight-no complaints"
Pros: "Free drinks in Comfort+"
Cons: "Waited on tarmac at Laguardia more than 45 minutes after landing for gate to open up."
Pros: "Everything was smooth from start to finish, and the flight landed 10 min. early! Can't ask for more!"
Cons: "See above description"
Cons: "Ended up stuck at Laguardia for 9 hours, tried to get onto earlier flight and wasn't able to because as I arrived as the jet bridge door was closing. The delta crew was pleasant, but I sat at the terminal watching to see how quickly that plane would back out to depart.... it sat there for another 45 mins, while I sat there wishing I was on it. My later/original flight ended up being delayed multiple times (not due to weather) and given no explanation for why."
Seats are so close together. Middle seats should be discounted.
Pros: "Good crew and service"
Cons: "Tough landing at DC but it was the wind"
Cons: "30 min to de-ice an E170? Why?"
Cons: "No delay. Seats were horribly uncomfortable."
Cons: "AA seats are very small and narrow. The reclining part was uncomfortable. I prefer legroom and comfort at Delta Airlines."
Pros: "Crew was great from checking in to the flight attendant and cockpit."
Pros: "The seat wasn’t very comfortable"
Cons: "I had little leg room"
Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "The crew, the flight attendant was very rude"
Pros: "Crew was great. Boarding was easy."
Cons: "Easier option for entertainment."
Cons: "The WiFi to work."
Cons: "Delayed more than 2 hours"
Cons: "The wifi was out so I was unable to do what I needed to do and I was unable to stream music"
Cons: "that my flight got cancelled and wasn't going out until Saturday and I would have been less than 24 hrs in Boston"
Cons: "Paid for gogoinflight, then is had a big error red screen, that said keep trying back in a few minutes. Never worked. Was not happy. Long flight."
Pros: "They let me sleep"
Cons: "Not enough food options"
Pros: "Stairs cause me tremendous pain due to a 4 year misdiagnosed ruptured SI joint. Usually, we have no way of knowing that our flight will end with a downstairs walk rather than a ramp. I emailed American Airlines last week but hadn’t gotten a response yet so when they announced that we would exit by stairs, I was almost in tears as I gathered my belongings. To my surprise, American Airlines had a ramp for us to use. I don’t know it it was a coincidence or if they responded that quickly knowing I was on the plane through todays’s technology. I will be a fan and a customer forever."
Cons: "On time, loaded quickly,ramp access to exit the plane."
Pros: "Crew was nice and kept us updated."
Cons: "Flight arrived 20 minutes early and we still deboarded 20 minutes LATE. Wifi on flight is ten dollars instead of being free and they use plastic cups for the drinks which I am sure is not recycled."
Cons: "American is always delayed, every single flight."
Pros: "Entertainment good"
Cons: "Legroom bad"
Cons: "we arrived and it took 15 min for a gate agent to bring the jetbridge out to the plane....sad!"
Cons: "They lost our luggage even though we have 50 minutes between connecting flights."
Pros: "Nothing, they’re awful."
Cons: "American Airlines failed to provide the service we paid for: a flight that arrived home in the morning, so that we could get to work. We had to use vacation days we did not have to spare."
Cons: "Wish they had told me there was a shuttle to other side of airport. Had not been to this airport in many years."
Pros: "Was a little slow in starting leaving too little time to drink my coffee and I was one of the first to be served."
Cons: "Flighr got delayed resting in connecting flight missing, AA didnt bother to comp the 6 hours of waiting by providing a hotel. Instead AA pretended to give a discount for a Hyatt which would end up costing 100 usd anyway, the same peice for hotels in that area anyone can fond on hotwire for 4+ hotels. Bad customer service, bad expectations management."
Cons: "Too cold on the plane"
Pros: "Have not travelled AA in a long time due to my disappointed but today's flight changed my opinion. Was impressed with every thing except that 1 cookie and a cup of water. Not a deterrent though"
Pros: "I did not die"
Cons: "planes were old, they lost my checked bags, the seats did not recline on a 5 hours flight, the movie was the same for everyone on the plane, food was a disgrace, seats were so small I was pretty much bitting my knees the whole trip. Overall, I am ever flying with American Airlines or Latam ever again."
Pros: "Online check in scanning my phone and having my seat already picked out. Informative while on the flight and great spacing. Also like to know that there still is free carry ons allowed."
Pros: "The associates at the terminal, who faced long delays and concerned and frustrated customers were patient and gracious. Following prescribed procedures they made announcements, apologized and provided snacks for the long delay."
Cons: "Having to wait for an extended time in the terminal. Delays turned my 10 hour journey into 24 hours."
Pros: "The PWM airport, ALMOST makes air travel tolerable. Great little airport. Crew was pleasant, Seemed to enjoy their work. That, alone makes a huge difference in an industry that truly doesn't put customer service anywhere NEAR the top of the priority list."
Cons: "Small plane with no leg room"
Cons: "Flight cancelled. Thanks, Obama."
Cons: "Flight was good until, after arriving 30 minutes early to PWM, our plane had to wait about that much time for our gate to open. Once pulling to the gate we waited another 15 minutes for someone to figure out the walkway and open the door tom the plane-- all with no communication from the crew."
Pros: "General professionalism of crew"
Cons: "Food selection was poor, small quantity, and bad value. Online boarding pass didn't work for return flight first time, but worked a second time."
Cons: "Plane from BDL was delayed which led do a missed connection in DCA. Rebooked on the 335 pm flight which is 3 hours later than my original arrival time. Very inconvenient for me as I had previous plans."
Cons: "i decided to purchase a separate direct flight at a different time instead of changing my flight, only to be informed later when i tried to hop on the back end of my original flight, that they had canceled my ticket since i hadnt boarded on the front end of that flight. i had spoken to a customer service rep about my option before purchasing the extra ticket, and she did not mention that this would be an issue. then i had to pay extra to get back on my original flight."
Pros: "Seats were really neither notably comfortable nor notably uncomfortable. I think they were slightly on the comfortable side."
Cons: "Would be nice to have more modern aircraft amenities, like power outlets for device charging, and display screens with at least some complimentary entertainment, or at least flight path tracking. Boarding counter lady was obnoxiously strict about not letting our carry-on bags to be carry-on. She made us test them in the size device and said they were too big, even though they could easy be pushed into the space, and regardless of the fact that we just flew on an American Airlines flight with them as carry-on and were only on a layover with them! Regarding the previous AA agent who let them be carry-on, she said "shame on them." Complete opposite of the positive experience we had with her counterpart in Phoenix. ಠ_ಠ"
Cons: "I never even made the flight because they kept jerking us around"
Cons: "Uncomfortable; charged $50 for checking bags only to see them checked for others for free at the gate. Seat selection on our three flights that day were ignored on 2 of tge floghts."
Cons: "Worse experience ever."
Pros: "Since you can not pay for pets online- I stood in line over an hour to pay. Then the CS wrote the wrong gate number on my ticket and I went to the wrong terminal that didn't connect. They took me in a van to make the flight."
Cons: "Pet pay options online"
Flight was delayed , plane was super small and didn’t have a toilet accessible at the front of plane
Pros: "We arrived nearly on time & without issue."
Cons: "The plane was warm & no cool air was being dispersed in the cabin & because of that it was very dry. Better temperature regulation, climate control is needed to make fir a more comfortable flight."
Pros: "Food was delicious!!"
Pros: "The crew and the entertainment were excellent."
Cons: "The seating area is very tight and the aisles were extremely narrow."
Pros: "They smiled, gave a friendly farewell, made sure everyone was hydrated."
Cons: "Don't get an attitude with calm passengers asking for assistance for their seatmates. Sometimes they wouldn't ask me what I wanted to eat or drink, they just assumed I already heard them ask other passengers and just waited for me to answer. It just seems lazy to me."
Pros: "Flight was good and I am satisfied."
Cons: "My entertainment set didn't work because the headphone jack was broken so that was a major bummer."
Pros: "Lot of leg room!"
Cons: "WiFi for Entertainment system was spotty, freezing very often. Unfortunately this issue has become more common in United flights lately."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Impossible to get entertainment to work"
Pros: "I like flying Lufthansa for entire trip then changing to united airlines"
Cons: "Particular everything the airline"
Cons: "I missed having the navigation map when traveling such a long distance."
Pros: "Brought my own entertainment. Friendly staff. Great boarding process. On time departure"
Pros: "Did not have any food so an N/A option for this category is needed."
Cons: "The exit, economy plus seat I chose was described as limited recline when it fact the chairs do not recline at all. I was so disappointed. Had I known this, I would have chosen a different seat. My neck was hurting by the end of the flight."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Friendly crew."
Cons: "It turned out that we were on stand by (without anyone telling us until the morning of the flight) and did not know if we were going to fly out. We could not select any seats at check in and only found out our seats a few hours before the flight. It was quite unpleasant and stressful as my husband and I were flying with our two children and faced a real possibility of not being able to sit together or getting bumped off a flight all together. It was a code shared flight between Lufthansa and United and each airline kept sending us to the other to get any answers or help. neither were helpful. It made it for an extremely frustrating experience."
Cons: "My parents were traveling, they dont speak english and I verified with Austrian airlines that they would be assisted at the gates and that they had the correct visas for each airport they had a layover in. I was assured there would be no problems. Upon boarding they were not able to get on their flight. I have never had so many communication issues and frustrations in the middle of the night with an airline. disappointed."
Pros: "The boarding was quick and the flight was on time. The crew was courteous."
Cons: "I selected economy comfort in the kayak app, but when I called about my boarding pass, kayak said they only sell basic economy. What did I buy? UAL only sells a limited selection of overpriced food. There is no music and you have to pay to see the flight map."
Pros: "The boarding and seating happened in a timely fashion, and the crew was courteous. The lunch meal (I had requested Asian vegetarian) wasn't amazing, but not as bad as it could've been."
Cons: "The flight was not with Lufthansa, but it was actually through United, which was extremely confusing as I did my ticket confirmation, seat booking and meal choice through Lufthansa prior to my trip. To find out on the day of the flight that I had to check in and go through United was extremely annoying, as the counters are in different terminals and it was unnecessarily stressful. The flight itself was crammed, with absolutely no leg space, and not even enough space under the seat to stow my backpack (which had fit perfectly on my Brussels Airlines flight to Madrid). I had requested the Asian vegetarian meal, and the snack we got prior to landing was pretty much two slices of cucumber on a small bun (and an apple on the side) - extremely dry and hard to eat. I asked for mayo, but the flight neither had that, nor any other condiments to make the "sandwich" more edible."
Pros: "Nothing was good about this airline with the exception of the baggage crew that finally helped me in Washington Ronald Regan Airport"
Cons: "My flight out of Portland was canceled and it took hours to rebook. I had to fly American Airline to Washington DCA where I roamed the airport at 9pm looking for someone from United. The crew in Portland ME told me the gate person would have a hotel for me.... The baggage crew had to help me."
Pros: "plane was relatively quiet and comfortable."
Cons: "Nothing wrong with boarding a plane using a bus, but there are better technologies and they are better."
Cons: "I was unable to go on the flight because of the extraordinarily high cost of changing a last name from a maiden name to a married name. I was so disappointed by the service."
Pros: "I upgraded to premium economy and was glad I did. Extra space and and empty chair next to me."
Cons: "For a 9 hour flight, food wasn't filling nor was there enough. I wouldn't have even minded paying a little extra for snacks but a small dinner and small sandwich as a snack was all there was. Plenty of drinks though. My day did not recline all the way, I only got it to move an inch or so."
Pros: "This flight was a good value."
Cons: "My legs are short and the seat seemed a little higher than other plans. I couldn't rest my feet flat on the floor for 6 1/2 hours. This was very uncomfortable."
Pros: "Good crew!! Entertainment screen not as good as SAS"
Cons: "The crew was haughty and rude, my purse was taken and stowed in overhead storage, the person sitting next to me wouldn't stow the carry on luggage. I needed to take my daily medication during the flight and was not able to. I have chronic health issues and needed to take it on schedule, I was delayed in getting home because I had to stop and eat in the airport and take my medication"
Pros: "Service Cleanliness Food Entertainment Boarding"
Cons: "Length of Flight"
Cons: "Person at ticket counter was rude did not want to wait in us when we was 1st in line. Did not greet and say good morning"
Pros: "The flight attendant used my name. Great landing."
Cons: "Tar mat loading. In flight service."
Cons: "can't believe you still have those low quality touch screens. they are very non-touch sensitive, and don't respond well to attempted touch commands."
Pros: "Good flight"
Cons: "2 Delays"
Pros: "Usual United Corp mentality Overbook flites change your itinary leave you stranded with no connection spend nite in airport"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "The flight was on time."
Pros: "We liked the crew, they were helpful."
Cons: "We did not like the video on the United flight that used the app. We were not told about this until it was too late and the instructions were not good for how to get the app--they were misleading. I had to go to the app store, not the United website. Also, our seats were changed without our knowledge and the flight description for the flight from Austin to Washington, DC, specified complimentary lunch and there was no lunch unless you wanted to buy it. This should be more clear, so that I can bring my own lunch if there will be none provided."
Pros: "Arrived early"
Cons: "The plane dropped during decent."
Pros: "The service was amazing."
Cons: "It was a bit difficult to navigate my way in Munich but the staff was helpful. I would suggest a 2 hour layover."
Pros: "The ground & flight crew was wonderful and accommodating"
Cons: "I wasn't allowed to bring in my carry-on luggage I was forced to check it in. We were told the compartments were fall once we boarded there was plenty of space in the luggage compartment it was a bit disappointing. I think the entertainment is overpriced as well"
Pros: "I lost my wallet on the plane to San dieago. A very nice honest family turned it over to the crew. The baggage claim customer service agent ran back to the plane to retrieve it for me. It had everything I needed, my ID cash for my trip. I'm thankful for the honest people still in this world! Many thanks to the family and crew and uninteds customer service!!! A+++++"
Pros: "The crew was nice and the area was clean."
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that before boarding they offered to check peoples bags for free because so many people were trying to take ridiculous sized bags onto the plane. I always pay to check my bag . That process took for ever but we did still arrive on time."
Pros: "We stood in line forever to then be told the clerk couldn't ch we ck us in. When we tried the kiosk it didn’t work. Long story short we missed our flight due to their poor organization of the line and crowd."
Cons: "The confusion caused by lack of direction from the staff."
Pros: "the United app that let me watch movies from my own device. The flight attendant gave me an extra blanket."
Cons: "the plane was very old and didn't have the entertainment options that newer planes have. The screen was so small and nearly impossible to see when the person in front of me reclined. The toilets weren't very clean. The food was very mediocre. I have a dairy intolerance, and both options contained dairy products. There was no lactose free or diabetic special meal option. There was an hour and a half delay to repair something on the plane when we made an emergency medical landing in Boston. I didn't mind the landing; I minded the excessive delay and wonder what would have happened if we didn't stop in Boston? What would have happened to the plan?"
Pros: "Flight wasn't that long. Experience was okay. Flight was full. Attendants did their job. Some were more polite and helpful than others."
Cons: "No request was made for the outbound flight which I want to comment about. At Dulles Airport, I checked in at the Brussels Airline counter, only to be told that since I was on a flight operated by United, then I had to go to the United Airlines counter to check in. At UA, I was handed a boarding pass which advised that my seat will be assigned at the gate. I saw on the monitor where the available seats were-1 window, the remainder middle row. I got the feeling that since I bought a ticket which cost less than what the other United Airlines customers paid for, then I was being relegated to seats that the other travelers didn't desire."
Pros: "Having movies is the best, followed by pillows and blankets"
Cons: "Stressed and unfriendly attendants (except 2). Didn't ask meal preference, just gave me chicken and I had to ask for switch. Would say things like "I don't have time" and "we'll do it later when the cart comes around". Only had 1 drink service, I don't think they made it all the way to my row. Very different than flight from USA to Paris."
Pros: "Offering food and drinks as part of ticket price, on-time departure, efficient service."
Cons: "More leg room without extra fees."
Pros: "The flight was on time and smooth, crew were friendly."
Cons: "It was freezing cold in the plane. People were putting on sweatshirts and jackets and covering up with blankets. Why should we be required to bring winter clothes with us when plane interiors are temperature-controlled?"
Pros: "...I got the standby flight....I guess that's cool..."
Cons: "My red eye was delayed35 minutes because of wheel replacement making it impossible for me to make my40 some odd minute layover and I had to burn up hours of my vaca in an airport and reschedule a pick up."
Pros: "The crew was very attentive and the pilot kept us informed at all times. For example, we got to Dayton early and we sat on the Tarmac for about five minutes as there was another plane there. That was no problem. But, after plane left we sat there until it was time for us to arrive before ground crew came out. Then, we waited 20 minutes for our baggage. That was not your fault. That was the fault of the airport as it has happened to me before. The pilot was very apologetic and kept us informed. I appreciated that very much."
Cons: "I was so excited because there were TV's on each seat, but I could not use because the place where I had to plug in for sound was broken. That was a disappointment."
Pros: "My other passengers in First Class. Your crew was also very kind and well mannered."
Cons: "I spent over 150 for an upgrade for a red eye for a flight I already spent over 500. Your crew lacked attention in service and one specific crew member (male) woke me up twice due to the loudness of his voice. Disappointed in the quality for the amount spent."
Pros: "The crew on this flight was absolutely amazing. They were helpful, they were very kind, and very pleasant. Probably the best flight crew I've ever had. Despite originally being annoyed that I wasn't allowed to pick/change my seat, I somehow miraculously got an economy plus seat so I had what felt like a first-class amount of space."
Cons: "Again, the flight was delayed. Despite originally being told that we were trying to get out ahead of storms so we wanted to get going quickly, we ended up boarding and then sitting there for probably an hour and a half. The pilot/copilot were great at letting us know what was going on, but the fact that both the first and second leg of my journey were delayed was excrutiately annoying. Having already been traveling for over 8 hours, the last thing I wanted to do was be even later and extend the flight even longer, obviously. The entertainment also was not available due to some problem in the circuit for the entirety of sitting there waiting to taking off and the first 15 minutes of the trip. Again, the attendants did everything they could and were very attentive, it was just frustrating to not really be sure that entertainment was going to be available for the 9 hour flight you just sat down for. Thereafter the entertainment was great. The food was, again, pretty mediocre compared to other transatlantic flights I've taken. The lasagna was not very good tasting at all. The sandwich they brought near the end of the flight was tasty though. Another plus was full sized cans of juice as opposed to a tiny glass. Honestly once this flight got off the ground it was good. However the combination of the delays, plus my terrible previous flight (which was the one directly operated by Lufthansa, the second flight was farmed out to United) just made the whole journey pretty awful, and probably the worst of my life. On my flight from Munich to Cairo, three weeks ago, Lufthansa left my bag in Munich despite the fact that I had an 8 hour layover - which you'd think would be more than enough to put a bag on a plane. They were very quick about delivering my bag once it arrived, but that previous experience with Lufthansa just served to bring down my opinion of the entire airline. Honesty, I had been told by friends that Lufthansa was a pretty good airline, that didn't show at all. There's a pretty big chance I'll never willingly fly Lufthansa again if there's even a remotely comparable option (which there almost always is)."
Cons: "Flight got cancelled, we did not receive an email or text. We found out when we reached the Heathrow airport. We got booked on another flight, with 6 hour layover. When the flight that got cancelled was a direct flight. Then our luggage was not put on the connecting flight, we got our luggage 24 hours later."
Pros: "We were supposed to fly out Sat Jan 23, 2016, but a blizzard had shut down the East coast air ports. We rebooked for Sunday. Air ports still closed. So we talk to the United people at SXM and they cannot issue us a new ticket but say we have to book on line or call the United number. Both options would not work for us. They were able to tell us that United only flies to SXM on the weekends and their would be no extra flight to makeup for all the cancellations. We ended up booking a new flight with American Air Lines for Wed."
Cons: "Not getting a refund for unused return ticket."
Pros: "The flight was on-time."
Cons: "The seat, again, was the bad news."
Pros: "Great economical way to get there!"
Pros: "Clean airplane"
Cons: "Crew seemed short tempered (not just one individual) in response to basic questions. No snacks offered for free and I paid $50 to bring a carryon but there was no space for it. It may be the low budget business model makes a lot of customers unhappy and over time the crew naturally becomes a. Little defensive. Next time I’ll pay more to ride with another airline."
Pros: "AFlight was fast and crew was accomdating."
Cons: "I did not like the fact that I was padded down not once but twice at the age of 69 almost 70. Really did not know I was a threat to the airlines. I'm staying with my daughter at Ft.Bragg."
Pros: "The flight was generally acceptable"
Cons: "Late departure, warning of turbulence - with no actual turbulence. Fight attendant wouldn’t let me use the lavatory during the un-turbulent turbulence. You can’t get anything to drink without paying at least $2. The fees are annoying. I miss comfortable full service airlines."
Pros: "Great crew, easy boarding."
Cons: "Zero entertainment (no TVs, WiFi, inflight magazines or electrical outlets), very small tray tables, pretty uncomfortable seats"
Cons: "Late and cramped."
Cons: "would have been nice to be informed that a delay was taking place..."
Pros: "Nothing. Cheap price is an illusion as they charge you for breathing."
Cons: "Everything. Frontier is the worst. Spend $50-100 up front and fly ANY other Airline (except Spirit, they stink too)"
Pros: "Took off on time, landed on time, very smooth flight. Baggage arrived in a timely manner. No problems."
Cons: "I wish Frontier didn't have so many fees and provided in-flight entertainment like television or movies."
Cons: "Frontier is a horrible airline. They closed the gate early and wouldn't let my friends on board even though they got stuck in security. The service on the plane was horrible - flight attendants were very rude. I also witnessed an egregious security violation in the bag drop line which would make me too concerned to ever fly Frontier again."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "The 45 minute wait for baggage, the crew that pushed too hard to get a frontier credit card, paying for a seltzer on a 4-hour flight."
Pros: "Both flights landed early and the pilot flew very smoothly (I tend to get air sick so I appreciated this). Easy to get on and off plane, no fuss. Great price ($250) to fly from DC to Denver, nonstop. Can't complain."
Cons: "The seats are very thin and feel like school bus seats, so it was a pretty uncomfortable couple of hours. Also, the check in at the kiosk is confusing and misleading. We were very prepared and did everything ahead of time (paid for our checked bag, knew that we'd have to pay for a cary on bag, etc.) but then when we checked in it asked us if we had a checked bag we needed to pay for. We doubted ourselves for a moment and almost paid for our bag, AGAIN, even though we had already done it. This payment should have shown up on our account and we should not have been asked about paying for our bag, that is confusing and misleading."
Pros: "The customer service line was very helpful changing our flight"
Cons: "Other flights to the surrounding easy coast took off and our explanation was that the plane we were scheduled to fly out on couldn't fly in weather... from Denver, CO... in January"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 2-1/2 hours departing from Denver. There was very little communication from Frontier regarding the reason for the delay. It was extremely frustrating being able to see our plane parked at the departing gate and NOT receive appropriate information as to why we could not board for 2-1/2 hours ! Frontier's newer passenger seat design is terrible ! I can't recall having to sit in more uncomfortable seats !"
Pros: "We didn't crash"
Cons: "--fee for carry-on, check bag (higher than industry standard), any beverage other than water --FEE IF YOU WANT A RECLINIG SEAT --started boarding the flight before the plane had been cleaned. Had the entire flight waiting on the ingested jetbridge for 15 minutes. In Denver. In winter. --flight delayed 1.25hrs as they had issues losing bags --took 1.5 hours to get my bag on the flight out."
Pros: "The crew on-board did a great job, but every other crew was a fail."
Cons: "Check in was not staffed properly, and took nearly an hour to do a bag drop. We paid extra for zone 1 boarding, but the first boarding announcement was for "all passengers, all rows". Once we reached our destination, it took a very long time for bags to show up. I flew Frontier for the direct flight to Denver, but I will be rethinking that in the future. I'm glad to pay a higher price for a higher level of service."
Cons: "It's a dumpy airline with bad seats, no amenities, markups on everything and generally uncomfortable. The service ain't much better."
Cons: "Surprised to pay $45 for carry on! Surprised at the small seats and no leg room and no reclining seats. Very uncomfortable. On leaving the plane, the line was slow, when we got up closer to the front we saw why....the clean up crew had started and was in the isle. Very odd....and inconsiderate. Will not fly on frontier again."
Pros: "The price The hospitality of the crew Flight crew"
Cons: "I thought the whole experience was very satisfactory."
Pros: "Ticket counter reps and crew were friendly and helpful. Flight was easy goin and pilot kept passengers informed throughout the flight"
Cons: "Frontier doesnt offer TSA pre-check for military even when the military ID is inputted online under the Known Number ID. The airline seating is uncomfortable. The seats dont lean back and there is no head cushion."
Cons: "I miss my flight. It was move to another gate and my time is wrong because of the time change. It would be nice if they post it at the podium screen or glance the passengers saying it was move. I was move to another flight and i have to pay again. Gate confusion."
Cons: "Worst customer service ever - this flight is delayed almost 5 hours and counting due to plane maintenance in another city and the airline couldn't accommodate my request to get on another flight (I was willing to pay more!), not could they refund part of my $600 ticket (they said the connecting flight didn't contribute at all to the total cost of the round trip) so that I could book a flight with another airline. didn't offer a voucher or even comp the bag. I will get home after 3am (with work tomorrow). I explained that I've had food poisoning within the past 24 hours and feel weak, and am stuck at this airport with limited food options."
Cons: "Same screaming infants. They were able to sleep but allowed to roam aisles."
Pros: "cheap ticket"
Cons: "- Trays were about 10 inches wide and 5 inches deep - which provides no value whatsoever. You can't place anything on it b/c it's not big enough. - Chairs were short so I had nothing to rest my head on. - Cramped isle space"
Pros: "They gave us a $10 voucher to use in IAD while we waited...for 6.5 hours."
Cons: "The delay seemed like it could have been prevented with a better computer system; we paid for our bags ahead and others didn't have to pay when we checked in because the system was down, no offer for a refund on that."
Cons: "Once you add all of the additional expenses, Frontier is just as expensive as other airlines, but with less comfort and amenities. I've flown with them twice and they have been tremendously frustrating on both occasions. Never again."
Cons: "On both legs of the trip, we were delayed for more than an hour due to inadequate grounds crew in Denver."
Cons: "Lost luggage and delayed takeoff"
Cons: "Seats - horribly uncomfortable, no recline Leg room - very tight unless you pay $50-$60 for stretch Hidden/extra costs - when I checked in almost all seats cost additional money; this is terrible for business travel and reimbursement purposes because it is considered an upgrade when really unless you take one of three middle seats at the very back of the plane, you have no choice but to pay. Carry-on fees are also ridiculous; it would be much better to be transparent and incorporate these costs into the ticket price. Food/drink - you offer no complimentary food or snack and when you buy something, there is a screen to add a tip - seriously?"
Cons: "Communication at the gate was poor. As well as the communication on board the plane."
Cons: "Our flight was late, but the board and the frontier employee working at the time kept insisting it was on time (even when it was past our departure time and we hadn't even loaded yet). Very frustrating, as this meant I couldn't update my family about what time to expect me. Seats we EXTRA close together. I'm only 5'4" and I was cramped. My normal sized backpack didn't fit under the seat in front of me even..."
Pros: "Price was great."
Cons: "The seats are terrible, especially for anyone over 6 feet. Expect not to be able to rest the entire flight. They are short and unbelievably uncomfortable."
Pros: "Direct flight to DC."
Cons: "I should say first that I think it's a little crazy to ever be too critical of an airline because, at the end of the day, flight is a miracle and I feel incredibly privileged to be able to afford a plane ticket home once a year. With that said, Frontier is really the only airline that I've ever flown on where you hear entire rows of flyers chatting throughout the flight about how much they hate to have to be using the airline, which is actually kind of ridiculous, considering it's a budget airline that even markets itself as such. I think I've flown Frontier three times now, and there's always just a feeling of plane-wide resentment toward the business and a lot of new flyers saying "yeah, I don't think I'll fly this again if I don't have to." Ultimately, I guess we all are responsible for our choice to try flying Frontier, it's just not a choice anyone feels good about. But kudos should be given to Frontier for making their ticket prices low enough to make people think they're still getting a deal even after paying out the a** in baggage fees. For myself and probably most of Colorado, we'll still always choose Southwest or jetBlue if we can, because even though it's a pricier ticket, you don't have to worry about being comfortable enough to sleep or dishing out money throughout your travels. However, if I ever take a direct 1hr flight up to Bozeman from DIA, and I'm only bringing my wallet, a chap stick, and the shoes on my feet, I'll probably consider looking at Frontier flights first. Also, it is a bummer that customers are rude to the crew. The staff on the airline are actually always high caliber IMO, and they're not the ones who made the business model, so stop giving them a snarky face when they make you swipe a credit card for your coffee!"
Pros: "Everyone was nice once we were on board"
Cons: "Our well-working plane was clearly given to another group, and all we were told was that we had a gate change that then turned into a 2h delay for mechanical problems. If you're giving the broken plane to us because the other passengers have a connection and we don't, say that, don't just act like nothing changed. Also, it's been a while since I rode Frontier and I really disliked the dinky trays and poorly arranged under-seat storage."
Pros: "The plane went up in the air and came down safely."
Cons: "There were inexplicable delays in boarding and departure. Frontier charges for carry-on bags in addition to checked baggage. The seats are very uncomfortable (they've removed any padding that used to be there) and made everything smaller. There are no drinks or food served, save for water if you ask for it. Basically, you just get a seat on a plane."
Cons: "My 7:25am flight was delayed nearly three hours! Right around boarding time, we were told that the plane had to be pulled out of the hangar and go through maintenance checks, so our flight would be delayed an hour. Later, we were told the flight would be delayed until 9:15am, and we were given a gate change and plane change. We finally pulled away from the gate close to 10am. It's absolutely unbelievable to me that the first flight out of the day would be delayed when there were no weather issues. This demonstrates very poor planning on behalf of the airlines. We were issued a $25 voucher for the inconvenience, but I don't plan to fly with Frontier again. They charge you for everything! (seats?, carry-on bags?, soda?), the seats don't recline and there's no leg room. I'd rather pay an extra $100 to fly United or Delta and have a comfortable flight."
Cons: "When I was selecting my seats, I had to pick one that cost an extra $12, because the free ones weren't available. That defeats the purpose of choosing a cheaper flight."
Pros: "The flight departed on time and arrived ahead of schedule, and the pilots did a good job adjusting altitude to smooth things out when we encountered turbulence."
Cons: "Having to pay $40 per carry-on each way on top of an expensive ticket and $16 each way to select a seat is ridiculous. Not to mention having to pay for food, even little snacks, on board. I understand that the crew have very little time to clean a plane between flights, but I've never experienced seats quite as bad as I found in my row upon boarding. Little bits of corn chips everywhere (on the seats, between the seats, on the floor, even in the seat belt buckle) and sticky mess where soda had spilled on the seat. My girlfriend fought her way back to the front of the plane to ask a flight attendant for something to clean up the mess, they took so long bringing anything eventually another passenger offered some napkins which we wetted with our own water and cleaned everything up ourselves. No flight attendant ever checked on us or offered to help clean or even pick up the pile of trash. The seats are not comfortable for me since they don't recline and the headrest is not adjustable (I'm 6'-2", the headrest makes contact with the top of my neck). The little fold-down tray is a joke, it barely holds a couple beverages. Even the back of seat storage is too small, barely holding a normal magazine. Whoever designed the seating area didn't seem to take into account human physiology and ergonomics or human behavior."
Cons: "Go screwed on baggage fees to the tune of $85 plane experience was extreme budget and was terrible. NEVER flying them again."
Pros: "It was inexpensive."
Cons: "Plane was pretty dirty with food and trash on floor. Many people had bags that were way over the carry on limit and size requirements."
Cons: "Plastic seats that don't recline. Mini trays that I can't put my laptop on. No wi fi. Won't be flying Frontier again"
Pros: "Flight was on time and crew was good."
Cons: "Seats are very crowded and uncomfortable ."
Cons: "The seats could have used those adjustable/folding headrests (with "wings" that prevent your head from lolling onto someone else's shoulder). With that, the experience of trying to sleep on the flight would have been 10x better!"
Pros: "The flight crew was great!"
Cons: "The flight was delayed over two hours and one of the persons giving updates was difficult to understand. The flight was also very bumpy."
Pros: "not much You pay for everthing incuding water, its like being nickled and dimed at every turn."
Pros: "Touch downs of all my flight legs are so smoothly done."
Cons: "an hour delay is a big deal!"
Cons: "Seats never reclined (even in rows that they should), tray table was minuscule (all you can fit is a cup/soda), no entertainment on a 4 hour flight; flight was not cheap (>$360) and still had to pay for bags (carryon and check in), food/drinks (anything that wasn't water), seat selection (or you get assigned to a middle seat); on both flights (to and from Denver), the landing made me sick to my stomach with how wobbly it was (I'd never had this before and I fly quite a bit)"
Pros: "The crew was amusing and friendly"
Cons: "the plane is so uncomfortable hard seats hard arm rests absolutely no leg room no place under seat to put your personal item I couldn't even "purchase" a beverage because once crammed in my space it was impossible to extract my bag to get money. The fare was low but by the time you pay for every additional charge. not a bargain I can not believe that you expect people to be caged in these tiny paralyzing seats. what are you thinkg?"
Cons: "There was no mention of a delay while boarding but it took an extra 40 minutes to get started. There were storms in dc and our plane had to be redirected to a different airport. We were not given accurate information or updated with any frequency. We would be told more information is coming in 15 minutes, then sit for an hour and hear nothing. i could not update my driver that was at the original destination airport. While stuck on the plane at the new airport we were told we could not get off the plane or we would not be allowed back on and if we decided to get off and drive we could not get our checked bags. Snacks were not offered for hours and more than one flight attendant said they were out of everything and running out of water. When they finally offered food, full price was still the only option and they had everyone line up in the back of the plane, blocking both lavatories. Half way through the line we were told we could close the doors and prepare to take off and everyone remaining was sent back to their seat. We waited another half hour to actually take off."
