Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Our flight was delayed a grand total of 5 hours"
Cons: "They could’ve had a backup plane more readily available"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 4.5 hours, crew treated it like just another day and just another delay. First negative experience on JetBlue. Hopefully its the first and last."
Cons: "Not sure why the flight was delayed 2 hours. Nobody ever gave a reason until the end when it was delayed again and they said it was mechanical. But that was not the reason it was late to the airport that was just in addition."
Pros: "Was able to sit next to my daughter."
Pros: "Personnel were great, flight left on time and arrived early! The rratings for food and entertainment do not apply, since I was not offered either. This was fine with me on the short flight."
Cons: "No complaints"
Cons: "Seat comfort, ride flight attendants, lack of announcements from pilots."

Pros: "The Crew was most pleasant as I was the last to board."
Cons: "Food offering minimal"
Cons: "How come none of your entertainment systems work? Also - not the day to train new personnel when you are behind. That was irresponsible and more stressful than it ever needed to be. It is completely Jet Blue's fault if people missed their connection due to your inefficiency."

Pros: "Free snacks/drinks, movie selection, crew was super nice"
Pros: "I flew from PWM to JFK,then JFK to RDU. Both flights left on time,and landed early,which was good for me,as I had less than an hour to make the connecting flight to RDU. Tke gate I arrived at was only 2 gates from the departure gate. I LOVE JetBlue,and was not disappointed this time either!"
Cons: "The flight attendant on the plane @ PWM never even looked up as I was wheeled to the door of the plane,even when I was struggling to get out of the w/c.The attendant with me had to try to assist me while holding on to the chair. I was not impressed. Other than that,the service was good."
Pros: "Quick boarding and great on flight options—tv, blankets, food etc."
Pros: "Efficiency. After flying another airline out and then Jet Blue home to CHS from BOS, my husband asked I just pay for Jet Blue only."

Cons: "Both my flights were delayed for many hours. The departure flight was due to weather - not Jet Blue's fault but the return flight was delayed over 4 hours. We did receive a voucher but it hardly makes up for the extended delay to arrive home."
Pros: "Compensation for delays, great service"
Pros: "The place took off on time, arrived early even with deicing. It was a really nice ride."
Pros: "The fight was smooth"
Cons: "Let me preface this by saying that prior to this experience I generally though highly of JetBlue. To change my opinion of them, JetBlue had to monumentally screw up, which they did. This was the worst experience I have had on any airline, ever. Why I am mad: - I had a 4.5 hour delay due to maintenance that caused me to miss a flight to India. The 4.5 delay was on a 50 minute flight from Portland, ME to JFK. I nearly could have driven faster than JetBlue got me to New York. - Because of my missed flight to India, I missed day 1 of a two day wedding of which I am a wedding party member - In order to get to India in time for day 2, I had to book a new flight on a different airline for an additional $1000, on top of what I paid for my original flight to India - I was originally told by JetBlue in Portland, ME that they would offer me a reimbursement for the Portland flight, a hotel in NYC, and a travel credit for the trouble. While not totally satisfying since I was still going to miss a day of the wedding, I thought this to be a fair enough offer. - However, at the JetBlue desk in JFK, they completely reversed course. I was told that all they could offer me $100 travel credit. No reimbursement for Portland flight. No compensation for the extra $1,000 flight I had to book. And best of all, no hotel in New York, I was stranded at JFK for the night. I spoke with a supervisor at the desk who repeatadely told me that JetBlue had done their job in getting me to JFK and that they were not responsible for anything after I arrived to JFK. A 4.5 hour delay on a 50 minute flight is bad. Being steadfastly unwilling to compensate for missed flights is worse. And stranding me in JFK after telling me they would offer me a hotel room is just plain unacceptable. My family will be cancelling their JetBlue credit cards and we will look elsewhere for flights in the future."
Pros: "Crew very helpful and pleasant"
Cons: "The 2 hour delay"
Pros: "Service and comfort"
Cons: "4 hours late"
Pros: "non stop service"
Pros: "My flight was delayed which wasn't related to jet blue and they did everything g they could to get us going which was nice"
Cons: "The quality of the plane itself seemed to be lacking. The seats felt old and the "entertainment" on the plane did not work well the sound was barely tolerable it was crackling and high pitched. On my previous delta flight everything felt clean and up to date and I even got a free alcoholic beverage. Lately it seems the quality of the flights has gone down where I used to hold it above other airline services. I fly out of Portland Maine a lot and I know it might not be top priority to get a decent plane up there but it would be nice to be on a plane that doesn't feel like one of the crappy spares."
Pros: "First time on Jet Blue...good rid."
Cons: "boarding the plane appeared a little disorganized"
Pros: "It was easy boarding! Attendants were nice and efficient. Made excellent time by arriving early. Flew round trip. Departing CHS late but arriving early at JFK. I will definitely fly JetBlue again"
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "Sitting in first class"
Pros: "Great seat and always on time."
Pros: "Crew was nice the flight was smooth and comfortable seats."
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: "Food service Leg room"
Pros: "You're kidding!!!"
Cons: "Seating 3 across. the passenger on the isle seat got served and the other passenger and myself were ignored. NO SERVICE!"
Cons: "Left A bag behind in NY"
Pros: "Nice crew. Stable flight."
Cons: "No gluten free snack options."
Cons: "Ear buds that allow me to hear the movies clearly; better equalization of the treble, bass and volume. I had to constantly turn volume up and down because of fluctuations in the movie sound track."
Pros: "The entertainment"
Cons: "Space between"
Pros: "Flight attendants were very friendly."
Cons: "Didn't I could pick my seat. I was assigned my seat. I like window seats. Either leg of the trip was a window seat."
Pros: "All okay except baggage check in and baggage claim."
Cons: "Delta Baggage handler accused my g/f of lying about active military status. Refused to accept her military ID. She is a first responder in a unit that responds to search and rescue and terrorist attacks and was returning from three days of maneuvers. Baggage lost. Still not here forty hours later."
Pros: "36 minute flight.."
Cons: "Not really much you can do"
Cons: "Didn’t make the flight due to delay and late arrival! No help getting seats on a later flight or next morning."
Pros: "Delta personnel at DTW knew they were overwhelmed and did everything they could to mitigate the problems."
Cons: "Delta should have had more than 3 staff on to check in 300 people."
Pros: "No problems"
Cons: "Takes so long to board plane"
Cons: "Having to go through Kayak wasn’t helpful. I wasn’t kept informed of the flight and getting to my flight schedule was difficult. Going through the website was also frustrating and confirming flights was difficult."
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."
Pros: "17 minutes late, arrived 5 minutes early. Crew Friendly. If you agree ALL airlines screw you ( and they do) Delta is about as good as you can get."
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: "Boarding was fast and well planned. The pilot was talking to the passengers politely, was updating about the flight every time when it was turbulence. The crew is very smiling, sweet and nice. The snacks are good and fresh. Very clean airplane with a good fresh odor. Good job! You are fantastic!"
Pros: "Got upgraded to comfort class it was comfy"
Pros: "Food was plenty."
Cons: "Long security lines at Logan. No free WiFi"
Pros: "Wow! One of the passengers on the plane looked exactly like Anne Coulter!!!"
Pros: "Good customer service"
Pros: "Got exit seats with extra leg room at no charge . Flight was quick and crew was very accomadating and friendly. Very good at providing updates and delays"
Pros: "Nice flight and good staff and service"
Pros: "Easy to board."
Cons: "Delayed due to weather."
Pros: "Friendliness, spirit, organization of crew."
Cons: "The obvious- no leg room, no food"
Pros: "Crew very nice"
Pros: "LGA caused massive delays due to construction."
Cons: "Nice airplane with good seats and legroom"
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."
Cons: "I liked it all"
Pros: "The boarding agents were especially helpful and friendly to my disabled wife, travelling in a wheelchair."
Pros: "We spent 90 min in line to take off on the tarmac. Pilot kept us informed. Crew were very pleasant."
Pros: "I fly non Rev so it's great to fly economy comfort for free"
Cons: "Seats were available so not a bad experience. Sometimes not knowing if I'll make the flight is unnerving. It's worth it however for the flight benefit I book directly through Delta so very curious how and why Kayak is requesting this survey"
Cons: "Rough flight and landing."
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: "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."
Pros: "Excellent service and on-time"
Cons: "Baggage charge"
Cons: "after reaching the destination, it took a lot to open the airplane's doors and letting people out"
Pros: "Seamless uneventful flight."
Pros: "Gate crew did a good job, passed out snacks and drinks with delay"
Cons: "Lot's of upset people worrying about connections"
Pros: "Plane wasn’t full and left and arrived early!"
Cons: "Offering some kind of beverage"
Cons: "Flight left on time."
Cons: "IFE was not streaming movies, WiFi on but not loading"
Pros: "Very nice crew.. And arrived early."
Pros: "The crew was great! Very accommodating"
Cons: "Better control and seating of families with little kids."
Pros: "I paid $118 for an extra legroom seat (D26) which then turned into a pass through for passengers to cut across to the other side to use the lavatory. This happened throughout the flight, hence took away the comfort I paid for and needed on this long flight."
Cons: "The food. I mean who makes this stuff?"
Cons: "A bigger plane."
Cons: "Baggage handler lost my bag, grabbed it off plane cabin, never found"
Cons: "Great flight"
Pros: "It was quick, on time."
Cons: "Beverage service did not exist."
Cons: "Flight currently delayed 3 hours! No help booking another flight or compensation or way of getting back to NYC in time."
Pros: "Crew was great. Seats could be a bit wider"
Pros: "Crew was great. Boarding was easy."
Cons: "Easier option for entertainment."
Cons: "I’ll never fly American Airlines again. Staff was rude and food and entertainment screen did not work"
Pros: "Arrived earlier than scheduled."
Cons: "Flight delayed, interior of aircraft was deteriorating"
Cons: "I have been flying for over 40 years and this American flight is the worst SNAFU I have ever experienced. Rerouted for refuling 30+ minute waits for gates to open, 1+ hour waits for takeoff. Not all of it was weather related. Even the flight attendant is disgusted."
Pros: "Boarding the plane was incredibly fast. As for the crew, I got an iffy energy from one of the crew members whom I felt was trying to play on my intelligence."
Cons: "I wish American offered more vegan and wheat/ gluten free options, as well as herbal tea options. I was determined to sleep during this flight, but I was hoping this plane would have the TV behind the chair. I enjoy watching the live map as we’re flying."
Pros: "30 year old plane!"
Cons: "No oilers, no individual monitors!"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Pros: "Arrived on time despite late departure"
Cons: "Bumpy ride in CLT but uncontrollable"
Pros: "WiFi was on the flight. Free with TMobile."
Cons: "Easy and fast flight"
Pros: "The seats were more spacious than other airlines which we appreciated, and this was quite comfortable."
Cons: "The overhead lights for reading were not working however, and we could not see the movie well from our seat so not being able to read was bothersome. The crew was nice but not especially helpful when we asked questions about the food and lights."
Pros: "Flight crew very friendly."
Cons: "No entertainment so 1 star rating. Kind passenger switched seats so I could sit with my husband and son. Would have had to sit behind them if not for her. Paying extra for isle seats was a surprise."
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: "We arrived on time."
Cons: "These planes feel like they are made of Legos. They are absurdly tiny and uncomfortable (and I am a small woman). Hot and stinky when boarding and no room for you or your carry on luggage. The days of glamorous air travel seem very far away."
Pros: "The crew was extremely personable, friendly, courteous and helpful. They must have come down the aisles about 20 times during the trip."
Cons: "The food was not great and the movie selection was pretty bad."
Pros: "Other passengers were friendly?"
Cons: "I was traveling alone with my tired, cranky 13 month old. I get that it's no fun for anyone, including me, to have a tired toddler on the flight! But from the moment we boarded the flight attendant was unfriendly and unhelpful. I asked for help putting a heavy bag in the overhead compartment. She half-heartedly tried and then told me it "didn't fit". By simply turning it on its side, I was able to easily make it fit, but it was uncomfortable for me to have to do so while also holding my baby! The flight attendant then commented that I couldn't have the child in a carrier during the flight (something I am well aware of!). She also neglected to offer us a snack later on. Overall, she was rude and inconsiderate and made a difficult trip more unpleasant."
Cons: "Two hours late due to not having adequate equipment"
Pros: "Plane did not crash."
Cons: "Has anyone at AA ever watched the insane boarding process? No running water on the plane, not hot anything (coffee, tea, food). Generally terrible experience, like most of the airlines."
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."
Pros: "The "very" new 777-200 was very comfortable, well-laid out. I usually skip or leave half of the in-flight food served, but this rates as one of the best meals, I've had in an airplane outside of business class. The in-flight entertainment/information service was decent, but perhaps because the plane was still in new condition."
Cons: "On this entire business trip, I booked with other companies, but ended up 5 flights operated by American Airlines. One cancellation, 4 delayed, 3 late arrivals. The last one was the most annoying. I will be avoiding AA in the future. The domestic crews are generally brusque and miserable. The international flight crews were more accommodating and pleasant, but most of them also seemed annoyed at passenger presence. Also, having to pay for a preferred seat on a half-empty airplane is simply unfair. By 24hrs before the flight, AA must have known there were plenty of empty seats."
Cons: "There was no Entertainment. No Screens. Nothing. Except one small tv on the alley. I can so no entertainment for so ever"
Cons: "Small plane with no leg room"
Pros: "I was happy that my bag arrived on the same flight."
Cons: "Paying for first checked luggage, 30 min. delay leaving PHX, small seats in coach"
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: "Crew on flight to Charleston was nice"
Cons: "I was supposed to make the trip from BNA to CHS at 2:30, we were delayed over 1.5 hours, making me miss this flight by 5 mins. Then I was put on 10pm flight which was cancelled! They couldn't get me to HHH until 6pm the following day. I would have missed my entire conference. The closest they could get me was a 10pm flight to charleston, then I had to rent (AND PAY FOR) a car and drive 2 hours to HHH in the middle of the night. The customer service people were less than helpful. They aren't allowed to help you make car reservation. My flight on the way back from HHH to BNA was a similar story. Thankfully my connecting flight was delayed an hour or there was no way I would have made it."
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: "Quick and easy"
Pros: "American Airlines is my favorite Airlines to fly. There is a little more leg room and the seats are a little wider. The staff is very professional and courteous."
Pros: "The single flight attendant was very friendly and down to earth, and was keen to share her experience with us."
Cons: "De Havilland Dash-8's can be a bit noisy, and they seem to be the only planes they fly into Hilton Head. However, that isn't to say you're unable to get sleep on them, because my partner and I both slept the entire flight- the vibrations are only slightly disconcerting. Departure was about 15 minutes late out of Charlotte."
Cons: "My flight date was changed because of a medical issue with my grandson, and I was outraged by the amount of the change fee."
Pros: "Not applicable"
Cons: "The flight never happened. Our outgoing flight from HHI to Charlotte was delayed until it was eventually canceled with no reason given and we were rerouted through Savannah, an hour away with no notification and so the return flight had to be changed too because our car was in Savannah"
Pros: "Once we got around to actually boarding and being on the plane, I was pleasantly surprised at how nice the plane and company were. Every experience up to that point had led me to believe we were on the budget airline with the delays and the way everything was handled (getting us into the bus to go to the plane, waiting 15 minutes, getting us off to wait in lobby 40 minutes, boarding again)."
Cons: "Lots of delay with little explanation. All in all, it was nearly 3 hours later by the time we took off for an otherwise very short flight."
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."
Pros: "How comfortable the seats were. How nice and pleasing the crew were to the passengers"
Cons: "How long it takes to be seated. I suggest you seat passengers by seat (after the people in wheelchairs and with baby carriages). First class first then whoever sits behind them and do on. Which basically is being seated by your seat number. Seat 1A first then seat 1B and so on"
Pros: "Easy upgrade"
Cons: "E145 don’t have room for carry on. Instead of people having to wait at exit of plane. Tell them well a head like when booking check your bag and make that one free. It goes to the same place right?"
Pros: "the crew was nice"
Cons: "We had to sit on the tarmac and deplane just to get onto another flight where I no longer had any power to charge my devices"
Pros: "Crew was very accommodating in light of the maintenance delay. Especially for those of us with small children."
Cons: "Look, delays suck. We fly about only once a year, and we ALWAYS have a delay. ALWAYS. Air traffic control at Newark will delay a flight for a hangnail."
Pros: "Very friendly crew."
Cons: "This is a small airplane. I would like to see United insist that people check large bags."
Pros: "It’s existance. Informative capt."
Cons: "Late almost 3 hours. Sketchy bev service. 50 seat RJ."
Cons: "Flight got cancelled again and again then call customer service but he doesn’t know anything about information. Totally ruined my day"
Cons: "3 hour mechanical delay"
Pros: "An early departure!"
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."
Cons: "I only made it as far as Chicago, and my bag was fairly comprehensively lost as I did so"
Pros: "the comped hotel"
Cons: "Improper handling of situation. There was flight scheduled later, but CS agent kept jerking us around. By the time I reached the United counter, the next flight was full. My total flight time was 36 hours. I still can’t believe that the pilot was missing. Worse yet, the agent at the gate could have made things much easier instead of telling everyone that a pilot was on his way to the airport."
Pros: "Round trips from FRA to DME were great. Round trip from SFO to FRA was okay. It's time for United Airlines upgrade planes."
Cons: "United Airlines needs to upgrade its planes."
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: "AT THE TERMINAL IN PORTLAND THE ATTENDANTS WERE SUPER HELPFUL AS I WAS CONFUSED ABOUT GETTING MY TICKETS."
Cons: "JUST BEFORE BOARDING THOSE OF US PASSENGERS NOT ALREADY BOARDED WERE TOLD WE COULD NOT BRING OUR CARRY ONS WITH US AS THERE WAS NOT ENOUGH SPACE TO STOW THEM OVERHEAD. SO WE WERE TOLD TO SEND THEM DIRECTLY TO OUR FINAL DESTINATION. WHEN I BOARDED THE PLANE I COUNTED 7 OVERHEAD STORAGE BINS ON THE OPPOSITE SIDE TO MY AISLE WHERE I WAS SEATED WERE NOT FILLED AND THERE WERE SEVERAL SUCH BINS ON MY SIDE OF THE AISLE (I DID NOT HAVE TIME TO COUNT THEM BEFORE I SAT DOWN). I ASKED AN ATTENDANT WHY THIS WAS SO GIVEN WE WERE TOLD THE BINS WERE FILLED JUST AS WE BOARDING FROM THE DEPARTURE AREA. SHE WAS POLITE AND SAID SHE WASN'T SURE ABOUT WHO MADE THE ANNOUNCEMENT IN THE TERMINAL BUT THAT IN ANY EVENT MY CARRY ON WOULD ARRIVE SAFE AND SOUND IN VANCOUVER - IT DID BUT WITH MY BOOK FOOD SNACK WHICH i HAD INTENDED TO USE WHILE ON MY WAY TO CHI. AND VAN."
Pros: "First time first class flyer. It was great!"
Cons: "Being separated from my wife in seating when we booked before others that we talked to!"
Pros: "Crew helpfull"
Cons: "Seats had less leg room Seat belts seemed to be made for someone with waist size 30."
Pros: "Love it"
Pros: "The flight attendants. Especially Meagan and Heather. Amber was a,sweetheart too. I had the same attendants 3 out of 4 of my flights that weekend. So cool. When they realized it was me again they spoiled me rotten. So good I feel like unless I have those 3 as my attendants I won't fly United again"
Cons: "No food options. No free food"
Pros: "They left my luggage in Calgary. I still don't know what flight they're returning it on it has to go to SF and then Fresno. Make sure you have a tag number for your luggage!!!"
Cons: "Really awful, disorganized and unapologetic."
Pros: "Got through sucurity ar PNR barely in time to make flight."
Cons: "Even though I am a frequent flyer with a Global Access card, I was select for enhanced security check. I paid for the Global Accessmcard especially sofas to avoid this. United said it was a TSA thing while TSA said it was at the prerogative of the airline. Why did this happen? So much for TSA Pre or Global Access."
Pros: "Left the gate one minute early, sat on the tarmac for 20 minutes, arrived 10 minutes early."
Cons: "Kept delying the flight for a total of 5hours, and then sat on the runway for 1 hour before take off. Was the worst experience of flying by far. Will definitely go back to delta or American as they are more informative and nicer"
Pros: "Usual United Corp mentality Overbook flites change your itinary leave you stranded with no connection spend nite in airport"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Arrived early"
Cons: "The plane dropped during decent."
Pros: "The flight was ok."
Cons: "It took a long time to hook up to the jetway once we taxied in to EWR. Pilot even commented that he didn't know what the heck she was doing out there."
Pros: "Flight did not happen"
Pros: "I liked when Delta stepped up and had us booked on one of their flights within seconds, after United abandoned us at their own terminal."
Cons: "Flight delayed 3 times due to maintenance, total of 5 hours. After final arrival time came and went with no plane or even announcement, I had to go back through security to front desk to find a rep and remind United that they had forgotten about us. They handed us off to the Delta counter with no apology (except the "new girl" apologized)"
Pros: "Not a single thing!"
Cons: "Arrived late"
Cons: "Kayak did not provide me with confirming email for flight in either direction and I missed my first flight to LA from Portland This is the second time I was not contacted via email from Kayak on flight reservations"
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."
Cons: "it took me three days to get home. the first plane had a mechanical error. the second flight united booked me on was over booked so i didnt get a seat. the third flight they tried to send me on was also over booked. luckily someone volunteered to give up their seat."
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."
Cons: "Seating next to the bathroom is gross"
Pros: "Friendly and polite! Crew."
Cons: "Middle seat. Space too small."
Pros: "Couldn't really figure out your Wi-Fi system so I just read a book"
Cons: "It's not really easy to set up your Wi-Fi system through the United app"
Pros: "Plenty of leg room in first class."
Cons: "Paid for upgrade to first class for smoother flight with more leg room. Flight attendant whose job is to server first class customers avoided me entire flight looking the other way whenever she was passing, making it impossible to ask for anything. I ended up asking different flight attendant for glass of water."
Pros: "It use to be, I could put up with the lack of comfort and services because the cost savings made it bearable. But thes days, the basic ticket costs are high and increasing despite ala Carter pricing. The flights are always full and the number of flights are down. Airline profits are at a peak yet very little is flowing back to improve the flying experience."
Cons: "No agent to check in when I arrived at airport. Only at gate. No advance check in or advance seating. Allowed passengers to have more than 2 bags. Flight was late. No help getting to next gate or holding aircraft. Absolutely uncomfortable sitting."
Pros: "Coming home"
Pros: "That I got a refund, although that should be a given"
Cons: "Had to purchase new flight day of, as I was told of flight cancellation 5 hours before leaving to the airport. I then had to spend $500 on a new flight, and one of the connections refused to let me on the plane. Stil not home."
Pros: "Pleasant crew"
Pros: "made good time."
Cons: "they lost our luggage on the way back,Didn't make it to Portland. But it was brought to our house at 7:45. I think for 1600.00 for tickets you should provide pretzels. That would be great. Thanks"
Cons: "Canceled flight, booked me an impossible connection, put on stayby when I get the tickets months in advance. Offered no vouchers and made me fly out on a diffrent day. Hs aircraft delays on all flights"
Cons: "Never flying United again. On my way to the airport in Portland I got a text from United that my flight to Newark had been cancelled and there was no way to fly me out of Portland to San Diego that day. My sister had to drive me to Boston so I could catch a flight to San Francisco, which took 6.5 hours because it flew over most of Canada for some reason AND had three babies that cried from start to finish. Oh and because I was a late addition, I had a middle seat. The second I turned my phone on after we landed I had another yet another text from United saying that my connection to San Diego had been delayed three hours and wouldn't take off until 11:15 pm."
Cons: "Tried to get assistance at the United desk where my gate was located at and they could not answer any of my questions and would not assist me or many others who had the same issues."
Cons: "Payed to upgrade seat was not comfortable and person next to me kept moving onto my side. Flight was 2 hours late so I missed my connection and had a terrible time to find a flight home. United staff was not helpful and kept telling me to go somewhere else for help. No food was served only tiny packet of way too spicy pretzels. Sat on the runway for an hour. Flight crew said 15 min and it was much longer. Crew seemed to be really confused."
Pros: "Polite staff"
Pros: "The crew communicated well to the passengers."
Cons: "I didn't get to Chicago until close to midnight, the flight to MSP was cancelled, and I missed my meeting the next morning. I understand you can't control the weather, but that didn't change the outcome for me."
Pros: "Staff excellent"
Cons: "Passengers space is insanely small, staff work under restrictive conditions"
Pros: "The crew was great and flight was on time."
Cons: "I believe you just can't substitute comfort for price and Frontier is not comfortable at all. And also for it to be a pandemic to my surprise the middle seat wasn't left open."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats."
Pros: "The crew was great, the prices fantastic and everything whet extremely well. We even arrived in Denver early. The flight crew did a great job of keeping turbulence down despite some conditions that were less than easy to navigate. For a no frills flight, this was fine."
Cons: "I miss the frills although they have them available all at a cost during and before the flight. If you need all the frills I would probably go to a more comfortable venue. If you bring your drink and snack and don't mind not choosing your seat, etc., this will work just fine."
Cons: "Flight was delayed to 5pm. But left almost an hour early. Flight left without me. Not much notice to other passengers. Every airport display and the gate display said 5pm. Many passengers left behind"
Cons: "Free water"
Pros: "Nonstop, pricing was great"
Cons: "Free stuff, seats and baggage. Maybe a real tray table instead of the shelf."
Pros: "Great economical way to get there!"
Cons: "Worst flight I have ever taken, will never fly frontier again... took 43 min for the bags to start coming out. Unorganized and unprofessional"
Pros: "Everything went as planned even with the delay for takeoff."
Cons: "delay . delay delay . a 9:30 am flight was delayed until 9 pm. I opted to cancel and get refund. person helping at check in desk left in middle of handling my request and said next person would be along soon to finish. Said I had been refunded but was in Q for receipt. I asked for my luggage and it took numerous trips to desk to ask where it was and finally 2 . 1/2 hour later I got my luggage but no receipt. It was chaos in departure terminal of people trying to rebook or refund"
Cons: "Flight attendants inattentive and forgetful."
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 first"
Cons: "This flight was canceled at the last minute and all passengers were told they needed to find another flight because the airline didn’t have any to rebook them on. Passengers had to pay out of pocket for new flights. Frontier said they would reimburse but I haven’t seen anything yet."
Pros: "Not applicable."
Cons: "Due to mechanical error, the flight was delayed, we missed our connecting flights, and customer service was rude. With all the added fees, my total flight round trip came out to $502.90, so the options given to me as partial refunds did NOT make sense ($180 if I refunded my entire return flight, which is way less than half my overall cost, or per customer service at my connecting location, “you’d be lucky if you got $80”, which is way less than a quarter of the overall cost). My connection was at Denver and my final destination was Seattle. My options were to fly to Portland, OR and figure out the rest on my own, at my cost. Or book the next flight to Seattle, which was 24 hours later. I got a voucher for up to $150 for hotel, but absolutely no assistance finding and booking a hotel, especially since they were sold out (I was looking for hotels just past midnight) or cost over twice the voucher. Am NOT flying Frontier again and I have shared my experience with friends, family, and co-workers and have strongly advised against this airline."
Cons: "My first time flying with Frontier. It is definitely a no frills airline - and with every little thing that they charge you for, it was no deal! I didn't end up with any kind of deal at all. I could have flown with a much nicer airline, and just quickly dropped off my bag outside (without waiting in a very long line, just to drop off a bag - even though I was completely checked in) I would have been given some free drinks and snacks, and watched a movie etc . . . For what I ended up paying to fly with a no frills airline, like Frontier."
Pros: "I liked that there was no delays and it was there on time"
Cons: "I hate that they charge you for a carry on"
Pros: "Price was excellent. Crew was outstanding. Upgraded seats were roomy and comfortable."
Cons: "Both legs of the trip had two hour delays. Boarding was unorganized. Gate staff was not pleasant. Some food and drink items were not available."
Pros: "Flight arriving earlier, ease of check up and boarding."
Cons: "seats not able to recline, minimal space to move...crump. Smiles are the only service available on board for free!"
Cons: "The guy in the seat next to me throwing up"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats, they didn't recline and there was no cushion for your head with the little side pieces so you could sleep."
Cons: "There was a flight attendant who was rude and microagressive as well as belittling. Her name tag was turned around, but she was white, blond and a bit older."
Pros: "We landed ahead of schedule both flights."
Cons: "Extra fee for carry on bag and food."
Pros: "Everything was smooth. No issues."
Cons: "That they didn't take cash for drink purchases."
Cons: "Had I known in advance that there was a cost for carry on & seat assignment, I would have chosen a different carrier. We booked this through Orbits/Kayak, so they too, are to blame for the deceptive practice."
Pros: "Flight crew was good."
Cons: "Everything is an additional charge from having a bag on board to cokes."
Cons: "Mass confusion on correct gate, boards in airport incorrect. Frontier had to change brakes on plane which resulted in over an hour delay. I appreciate safety but they cant arrange a better majntenance program at their main hub? Reading lights above me did not work for the second time on this trp. Sat in the dark in a plastic bucket seat. Awful. I never want to fly frontier again."
Pros: "It was a direct flight between the two travel locations. It was marginally cheaper than the other option, however it was still $800 / ticket, round trip, so not at all cheap."
Cons: "I understand that Frontier is now a deep discount / no frills airline that charges you for everything, and have removed almost every convenience from the flight, however the boarding and flight crews were very preachy about the carry-on luggage, going as far as to treat the customers as though we were boarding a flight ran by a policy state, and threatening body cavity searched to make sure that you did not smuggle a carry on item aboard without paying for it, then continuing to tell the passengers that the overhead storage was reserved for passengers paying to bring carry-on luggage aboard. We paid $800 per ticket for this flight, we expected that we would not be treated like children. In addition, the seats did not recline, and the tray table was so small that it was not useful for much of anything, not even large enough to hold the small book that I was reading. Ultimately, I feel that I should have paid the extra $400 to fly Southwest. I used to like Frontier!"
Pros: "It was a comfortable flight. Checking in was very easy and it was overall a great trip. Thank you Frontier!"
Pros: "cancelled our flight for 5 days and offered zero compensation"
Pros: "Having done a bit of research, I found out ahead of time that Frontier charges for carry-on bags. Note that the price for a carry-on increases dramatically if you neglect to declare the bag at the ticket counter and have to do it at the gate. I watched this happen to a couple passengers, who seemed less than pleased to find this out. Seems like a bad policy to me (if you're gonna charge to carry on a bag, make it a flat fee) but I managed to cram everything into a small backpack ("personal items" are free). The roundtrip flights between Austin and Denver both landed early."
Cons: "My experience this time was pleasant overall. In the future if I need to check a bag or have a carry-on larger than a medium backpack, the added cost could easily push Frontier's fare above that of other airlines."
Cons: "My flights were delayed/cancelled for three days before I finally got a refund. Cancelled my whole vacation."
Pros: "The staff were very friendly."
Cons: "Frontier charges you for every little thing, even your seat. No complimentary snacks. Seats are outdated, tray tables are tiny. We were also delayed over an hour because they had to convince 5+ people to switch to a later flight... They offered $600 towards future travel. I didn't take it because I never want to fly with them again."
Cons: "We were delayed"
Cons: "The day after arriving at our destination, our return trip was canceled: "due to day-of-travel flight cancellation or traveler no-show." I can assure you, we did show; I had the pictures. They tried to put us on an earlier flight, which was not convenient, due to travel plans made 8 months prior, so the return flight was scheduled for the next day (again, inconvenient, due to loss of income). Frontier attempted to charge me for the extra day. After I complained multiple times, they finally waived the additional charge when I reminded them I was NOT the one who canceled the original flight. My daughter and I were provided $100 travel vouchers, each, for the "inconvenience." Frontier can keep their $200."
Pros: "Boarding announcements were clear, the process was prompt and friendly! Inflight crew were so efficient!"
Pros: "we arrived 15 minutes early"
Cons: "our gate was changed and we had to wait in the plane 20 minutes after landing"
Pros: "I didn't like too much to be honest.. the crew was friendly.. boarding was okay.. nothing is really standing out."
Cons: "Awful seats. They were WAY too small and I'm a small person (5'4ft 115lbs). They didn't even lean back and they were SUPER uncomfortable ... this airline is doing it ALL WRONG!!! The flight was only 3hrs long too.. and it left me with a very undesirable taste in my mouth.. the "complimentary" water didn't help.. they MADE me check my bag that would have clearly fit in the overhead compartment.. an extra $30 I wasn't expecting to pay.. the flight was so bad that I'm leaving the review.. I NEVER leave reviews.. so.. step up your game Frontier."
Cons: "flight was delayed over an hour."
Pros: "Give us compensation for us booking flight cost more 340 dollars"
Cons: "Hate frontier company and their services"
Pros: "Crew did a awesome job at keeping everybody calm once we hit some horrible turbulence"
Cons: "The pilot was absolutely horrible"
Cons: "The website was confusing at check in and I thought I had to select a seat. I was charged for a seat twice due to a lay over. $70 for a seat that would go back slightly and had a decent amount of leg room. $35 to check a bag, carry on cost more. My inexpensive ticket turned out to cost me an extra $140 dollars"
Cons: "The cost of baggage"
Pros: "The attendants were friendly, and I sat next to a great gal."
Cons: "The small trays were ridiculous. No beverages and having to ask for a free water seemed below average for airline amenities. We sat on the runway for 45 minutes "waiting for the processing papers." Still made it on time, but it was not a good way to start."
Pros: "Smooth flight, no issues"
Cons: "Don't like the carry on fee!! Just put it in the cost of the ticket. Charging for a cup of coffee? Lame!"
Cons: "No free soft drinks"
