Pros: "Delta is not a good place to be"
Cons: "Delta is not good on customer service"

Pros: "Flight attendants were extremely nice to my baby and me. Didn't feel rushed. Nice variety of snacks."
Pros: "there was NOTHING good about the trip from nc to atl to fl!"
Cons: "where should i start? my flight was delayed leaving NC to ATL. after standing in line for over an hr trying to speak to someone about the issue. i was notified on my phone i could keep my current flight or rebook of course i wanted to keep my current flight since it was my birthday weekend. i then called delta (in nc) for help since they told us we wouldnt make our 1030 flight and we might have to stay in a hotel that night until we could rebook the flight. not cool! i was told by a person (in nc)about what i should do once landed in ATL. they were beyond rude. they turned their backs or gave half answers. when asked about the hotel for the night they told me they werent going to handle that and i had to pay for a hotel AFTER i was just told by a delta agent that if i had to stay overnight my hotel was going to be covered. i then again called a delta agent in ATL after being informed that my status on the stand by list wasnt activated and i had less than 10 mins to make it to the next terminal and try to get activated and i would probably not get onto that flight to leave ATL. we were told that we had to stay in the terminal that night. my whole trip could have been ruined from the start from the flight being delayed in NC to talking to rude delta agents in NC and ATL. my flight status being one thing and then finding out it was something else. i never had to deal with something like this."
Pros: "Easy flight. Plane and crew were fine"
Cons: "It was a short flight but no entertainment on this plane."
Pros: "I will know more on my flight back to my destination!"
Cons: "No trash bag in my seat for puking or bubblegum"
Pros: "We did eventually get there"
Cons: "What should have been a 90 minute flight took over 4 hours! Between mechanical failure, overbooking and waiting for gates and sky bridges we missed our connection. Then when they rebooked our connection on a British Airways flight, BA couldn't pull up the tickets and we wasted yet another hour while Virgin Atlantic and Delta both passed the buck as to who was responsible for correcting it so we could get on our rebooked flight, which we BARELY did with only 2 minutes to spare!"
Pros: "Great gate crew. Cabin crew was nice, but busy. On time arrival."
Pros: "Everything was great. Staff were friendly and courteous, I only had one problem but even that was solved and I was taken care of."
Cons: "The only thing I didn't like was that wires got crossed and now I don't have my luggage because my check in agent from the start of my journey didn't send it to the right place."
Pros: "Comfortable plane"
Cons: "Travelled with some guys straight out of the Hangover movies. Going to Vegas for a Bachelor party and ogling and making comments on the flight attendant and other passengers! Nothing delta can do about that, It's part of life..."
Cons: "Missed connection"
Cons: "Flight was completely full and I was seated next to someone who required TWO seat belt extenders! I was so uncomfortable, they were sitting on top of me, couldn't even put down the arm rest. The flight attendant said there was nothing they could do."
Pros: "Customer service very courteous and friendly."
Cons: "Delayed 2.5 hours"
Pros: "The flight was delayed, and delayed again, and finally delayed to 18 hours after original takeoff time. I was rebooked on a flight for the following after, and that flight has been delayed twice so far. Never again will I fly Delta."
Cons: "That I never made it to my destination"
Pros: "Very friendly and accommodating crew"
Cons: "Uncertainty re connections at JFK provoked some anxiety but the pilot and crew were helpful in allaying that."
Cons: "After checking in at a kisok I had to wait in a huge line for over 20 minutes just to drop the bag. This the second time I have had this experience with them."
Pros: "We didnt have food or entertainment because the flight was short."
Cons: "There was nothing that I didn't like."
Cons: "Everything that could have gone wrong with my flights, went wrong. On my way from LA to Raleigh (through Atlanta), I was affected by the weather conditions at Atlanta. I understand that the weather is beyond Delta's scope of control, but customer service is not. I had to wait in line at LAX for 8 hours to even get information on what had happened, and what solutions were available. The customer service call center was collapsed, and at the airport counters at one point there was ONLY ONE DELTA REPRESENTATIVE serving a line of more than 100 upset customers. This IS Delta's fault, and it is unacceptable. This definitely was under Delta's control, but in order to save a few dollars in overtime for emergency staff Delta was willing to let its customers make terribly long lines, miss their flights, their connections and consequently their commitments. It is disappointing to observe how Delta believes that a few dollars saved on extra staff and emergency measures can offset the irreparable long term damage to its business due to upset customers. My way back from Raleigh to Los Angeles was also a disaster. Without any type of explanation and nothing more than an email announcing the change, the nonstop flight I bought was replaced by a 1-stop flight with connection in Atlanta. This was NOT THE PRODUCT I PURCHASED. There is a reason I paid a premium for a nonstop flight, and Delta did not hesitate in providing me with a less valuable product without any explanation or refund. Delta prioritizes its operational metrics - an obsession to fill and overbook its capacity - over its customers' experience, one again under the foolish belief that short term savings in any way offset the long term damage of disappointed and alienated customers. I will NEVER FLY DELTA AGAIN. I will do whatever I can to transmit my experience to everyone I know. At a time where major airline carriers are in the spotlight due to abusive practices (i.e. the United passenger case), I still find hope in knowing that alternatives such as Southwest still put their customers first, over the ethereal benefits that a few-dollar savings in operational expenses can provide."
Cons: "That I missed my son graduating from the Air Force"
Cons: "Poor leg room compared to jet blue"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and apologetic"
Cons: "The AC did not work and we had to get off and hang out in the jetway for probably 45 minutes. Nightmare."
Pros: "Delta gave out free snacks and then I got a flight for the next day."
Cons: "After being delayed over 5 hours and then being on the airplane the flight got cancelled."
Pros: "Before we even boarded, the ticket agent happily found two seats together for my husband & I. The in-flight staff was particularly helpful. We had some medicine that needed to be refrigerated and they both provided a bag of ice for us to keep it in and checked back to replace the ice as it melted."
Pros: "the aircraft was fine. leg room was slightly larger than other commercial flight i took recently."
Cons: "the crew at the boarding counter was unhelpful. my girlfriend and i were rescheduled to a later flight and were randomly assigned to 2 separate seats. online seat selecting did not work at all."
Cons: "With only one gate attendant, boarding was slow and unorganized."
Pros: "Awesome service in first."
Pros: "The cookies on board were tasty."
Cons: "There was no gate agent until another passenger went all the way to another gate to retrieve one. The flight kept getting delayed, but no one made any announcements about why or even that there was a delay. Passengers just kept noticing the time change on the flight info board. On board, if you didn't buy into Delta's classist system of paying for an "extra comfort" seat (which, by the way, is a regular seat), you were seated in a tiny shoved in extra row where even my 8 year old's knees bumped the seat in front of us while seated. I will never fly Delta again, particularly with them being one of the priciest options."
Pros: "Nothing really."
Cons: "Arrived at airport at 08:00a for 09:10a flight. Delay for weather, then crew rest, then cancelled ~6 hours later. All while sitting in the airport like a dope. Put on a flight with overnight in LGA, but they could not tell us if a voucher would be provided. Usual story since the govt does not mandate the airlines do better. Was not advised to try standby on other later flights, which worked. Finally landing in BOS, we sat for 45+ min waiting for a third person to flag the plan to the gate. Understand why, but really annoying after such a long day full of delays. Felt many areas could have been handled better. Each person individually tried, but in aggregate it was a mess."
Pros: "Fast boarding and short time from gate to take off."
Cons: "Not much."
Cons: "Flight was an hour late getting into Raleigh, so an hour late leaving Raleigh for MSP. That gave barely enough time to hurry straight to the gate for the MSP to MSO flight."
Pros: "The crew and everyone was very informative and helpful in keeping us informed about our delays."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed 3 hrs also, my baggage was damaged."
Pros: "Fast boarding the plane! Great snacks! Great flight attendants."
Cons: "We sat in the plan for 45 minutes before taking off and arrived 20 minutes late."
Cons: "This flight never happened bc they didn't have a captain for the plane. Not a delay - not maintenance issues - just didn't have a captain so sorry your flight is cancelled. Ridiculous"
Pros: "Although the flight was delayed we were deplaned during the delay, always a plus. The flight was fast to help make up time."
Cons: "Take off,flight and landing were a bit rough, but as it was only partially due to weather, understandable. A little difficult to endure the speed and sharpness."
Pros: "Everything was on time & comfortable."
Cons: "The cold I caught on the way to my destination, but, Oh well. Such is life."
Pros: "The crew was nice, the flight was fast"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 3 times and caused me to miss an appointment in New York. I could've driven back to New York and I would've been home faster."
Pros: "Polite attendants."
Cons: "Overall look of aircraft is poor. Ac Outlet was not working. Snacks were terrible. Dirty."
Cons: "I was surrounded by a basketball team. They all have terrible breath. I know that because they kept talking to each other and I was in the middle (literally) of it all. Thanks Delta airlines!"
Cons: "Flight left an hour late, I was about an hour late arriving as my friend was waiting. Once we boarded we sat in the plane for another 30-40 minutes. Luggage took FOREVER to come & the overhead storage on the plane was so small I could barely fit my bag. I'm done with Delta!!!!!!!"
Pros: "The crew was friendly. Free movies available for those with computers. On time arrival."
Cons: "Boarding was very chaotic. No lines--just a jumbled mass getting on. Seems like it could be improved."
Pros: "Flight attendants provided snacks since there was a delay"
Cons: "There was something wrong with the plane so it was delayed for a while"
Pros: "It was a bigger plane with more room"
Cons: "Our scheduled flight was canceled because of "maintenance" so we had to go back into LAX to catch another, which caused a delay in our whole day. One on the flight it was fine."
Cons: "More leg room"
Pros: "Flight was on time. They fed us two meals."
Cons: "Seats in coach are incredibly cramped, and blankets are comically small. The food was pretty terrible and the vegetarian option not particularly nutritious."
Pros: "The crew were great and the flight was quick."
Cons: "The blankets are really thin and so we were cold. They do not offer eye masks anymore. So sad"
Pros: "Crew was kind & friendly. They found my wife and I empty seats where we could stretch out. Food was great too. No complaints."
Pros: "Boarding, entertainment"
Cons: "Arm rests were immobile, meaning could not take advantage of empty seat next to me."
Pros: "I like the fact that I made it to London alive. The turbulence was so bad and the pilot never came on and reassured us I was shaking and nervous all the way across the ocean"
Cons: "The boarding issue to me is a big problem you should put the conditions of the ticket up front and center for example boarding last when you are on an international flight with bags that need to be put in the overhead is a big problem having to pay for each seed internationally for each leg of the trip made my ticket just as expensive as if I had bought it from a regular company never again will I use your service rip off rip off. Once you buy the ticket then you send clarification letting the passenger know they have no rights I had no right to anything I was wondering if they were going to tell me I had to clean the plane in order to be transported from New York to Spain. A satisfied customer is a repeat customer you got over on me once but never again"
Cons: "Having to pay AGAIN for a seat choice. AND IBWAS MADE TO CHECK MY XARRY-ON BAG ALL THE WAY THRU TO ROME! WHY. WHY couldn't it only be checked to Philadelphia.?. That has taken place on other flights. Should not require checking a carry-on all the way thru on an international flight."
Cons: "Seats were too narrow and distance between sets is too small"
Pros: "Direct flight Good crew"
Cons: "Confusing in LAX as to where to go for the flight"
Pros: "Crew was extremely helpful on boarding and on flight. Breezed through Passport area. Everyone went our of his/her way to answer our questions and then make suggestions."
Pros: "Great entertainment. Ok food and drinks. Newer777."
Cons: "Long flights are pure torture in these small seats."
Pros: "Food was edible, flight left early, arrived early in philadelpia, the customer service helped out it my baggage."
Pros: "Super smooth flight - it’s an average commuter flight - no fancy bells and whistles."
Cons: "The legroom sucked. I’m 6’1”, and my knees were up against the seat in front of me."
Pros: "Economy class seats better than UA."
Cons: "Economy class seats always have room for improvement."
Pros: "Not over crowded and friendly crew."
Pros: "The crew we're very pleasant & friendly. The flight was on time even though we sat in the runway for a bit."
Cons: "Having to pay 3 Euros for a cup of coffee. And the seats were very uncomfortable."
Pros: "But the crew was great!"
Pros: "New aircraft with good entertainment system. Did not crash."
Cons: "Very tight seat spacing in pitch and width. Screen did not tilt so even with the very minimal backrest recline viewing was not ideal. This was to "punish" me for not buying the various seating upcharges American tag onto the ticket price. It was a low cost ticket on a very convenient transatlantic flight from RDU, "Easyjet" pricing brings "Easyjet" seating. I have flow a lot, 3MM miles on UA alone, and this reminded me why AA did not get much of my business! I will have to revert to the "Continentalised" UA (another sore point!)."
Pros: "Pleasant crew; clean and generally comfortable"
Cons: "Check in / baggage drop : long wait ; rather unhelpful personnel at counter."
Pros: "Boarding, staff, service, arrival all great"
Cons: "No issues"
Pros: "Lots of space and very accommodating. The updates via email were helpful"
Pros: "Great crew, early boarding and early departure."
Cons: "Not every seat has electrical outlets. very few poorly spaced screens. Food is average. Seats don't reckine very far. I'm told it's worth catching the British Air flight from Philly bc the planes are better with a screen at each seat"
Pros: "Slick boarding"
Cons: "No movies on way out."
Pros: "Again getting moved up to first class"
Cons: "I would have liked to know before I was already seated in Coach."
Cons: "It's not the first time that I was forced to gate check my carry on luggage. They claim that the cabinet in the plan is full while actually there is plenty of spaces for multiple luggages to be there. The crew was rude and refuse to explain it in an acceptable way. When I asked why cant I carry it when there is enough space, she simply says because you just can't. Do you want to take the plan or not! This is unacceptable."
Pros: "Flight left about 30 min late but still landed in philly pretty much only time."
Cons: "I wish there was a way to request to not sit next to someone carrying on a pet."
Pros: "Main cabin extra leg room."
Cons: "Barely any help with delayed flight and connecting flight. Had to say a prayer and sprint through DFW to make the connecting flight."
Cons: "We could not check in online because we refused to pay for seats that I felt that already purchased or was entitled to one so I bought a ticket. When we got to the airport and checked in they did not put me and my traveling partner together meaning they didn't see them together not to mention. Our flight was delayed and we only have 4 minutes to get from gate a to gate. We got to the gate collected our boarding passes found out we were seated at the very very very back of the plane right next to the restrooms.........NICE"
Cons: "When I booked my flight, I used Kayac like I always have in the past. To begin with, I selected several flights that were listed, only to have it tell me that this flight is no longer offered, which I assume is engineered to get me to select a more expensive flight. Once I finally found a flight that was still available, I selected it and began the process of providing information and selecting seat assignments. On 2 of the 4 legs of the round trip, there were no more seats available except for upgrade seats, which resulted in an extra $100.00+ in charges. Then when I finished the transaction, I noticed an extra $200.00 charge added. End result was that I ended up paying over double what I would normally pay for this same round trip that I have made many many times. I feel, no I know, that some customer relations person will look at this comment and reply with a pre-generated response apologizing and hoping I have a better experience in the future and thank me for using Kayac. Big companies like yours look at one customer as no big deal. I'm a Physician and have the ability to reach out to multitudes. I'm going to make it my mission in life to reach out to as many people as I can through word of mouth, signs in my office, Internet and social media to let them know about the deplorable practices of your company."
Pros: "I missed my previous flight, and even before that my day was going pretty bad. I was quickly routed to the desk to get a replacement ticket, and even though the flight was oversold, they had me wait around until the plane was ready to take off. A couple minutes after they shut the door of the boarding bridge, I was called and told to follow one of them. It turns out a couple of people were headed to the right city in the wrong country."
Cons: "The flight was continuously delayed and ultimately cancelled. There weren't a lot of connecting flights until much later the next day, and the customer service was fair at best."
Cons: "Flight was pushed out at least 5 times before departing. Once we even boarded and were told to get off the plane after the delay became too long, "for security purposes." The pilot was completely unprofessional - he tried to make light of the situation. At first it was funny but the jokes soon got old. There was little attempt to to update as the delay kept getting longer and longer. We learned more about the delay from our phone apps than from the crew. Most idiotic and incompetent group I've ever flown with."
Pros: "We landed, eventually."
Cons: "The flight was late. Also, they only accept cash onboard for refreshments. That has the consequence of the crew getting on the PA system asking people for change, and scurrying around the cabin in a desperate shell game exchanging bills. It's 2016. Get with the program and accept credit cards."
Pros: "Since the merge with US Airways, it seems as though American has adopted it's ways. US Airways was my least favorite airlines therefore I am disappointed by the merge. American now charges $25 each way for a trip to the Caribbean, which was not the case in the past. No entertainment provided unless one wants to watch a Free movzie on your small cell phone screen (lets hope your phone is well charged and you remember to bring your ear buds also)."
Cons: "Lack of snack options, lack if entertainment, baggage fees, less space for comfort."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Overall smooth trip and congenial staff."
Cons: "This is coming from a western audience but there could have been more entertainment options."
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "I didn't like having to pay an extra $25 to check my bag and I didn't like having to pay an extra $25 to change my seat assignment. The really hard landing in San Jose wasn't a lot of fun either. Recommend checking out other airlines before booking with American Airlines. I've taken American flights before with much the same experience. I was hoping like other airlines American's service might actually have improved - wishful thinking."
Pros: "The crew was awesome and the pilot was honest about how delayed we would be."
Cons: "AA was not upfront or clear on delays at all. The plane was very delayed and they did not communicate clearly."
Pros: "Safe trip"
Cons: "I froze the entire time"
Pros: "That we at least made it to Chicago."
Cons: "That the plane coming into Raleigh from Dallas had technical problems so it made us miss our connecting flight in Chicago. I needed to be at work in Des Moines Monday morning at 8 and they bumped us to a flight from Chicago to Des Moines for 12:00 pm Monday afternoon. We had to pay $280 to rent a car and I drove all night and went straight to work without even going home to shower or get ready or anything. My 4 and a half year old son had to endure the whole thing too."
Pros: "The in flight entertainment app was nice."
Cons: "I liked the in flight entertainment app however my powers source for my device wasn't working well and I couldn't finish the movie that I had purchased."
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "Never offered any of the food they were walking by with. Only 1st class got everything"
Pros: "Service, comfort, timeliness."
Cons: "Food was marginal, especially the chicken in the salad, which was petrified."
Pros: "New plane Lots of movies Recharge outlet for devices Couldn't be better !!"
Cons: "Very pleasant"
Cons: "No movies, no headphones, no wet wipes. Not your fault, but i missed my connections."
Pros: "The on flight attendants were very courteous"
Cons: "The flight was delayed and no information was available for my connection. When I went to the gate to ask about my connecting flight I was ignored. And the gate attendant behaved as though I was bothering him."
Pros: "The crew was so friendly, got me a seat belt extension and let me board early"
Cons: "Everything was good!"
Pros: "Prior to getting in to the security area at RDU, my Mother in Law gets a pat down because she didn't have ID. (She hasn't driven in over 10 years). She kept her cool and cooperated."
Cons: "I know the TSA was just following their protocol to help make us all safer, however, one look at her would tell you she was o.k. to go thru."
Pros: "The only saving grace were the extremely helpful people at the front desk of American Airlines that worked tirelessly to get my boyfriend and I on a flight to New York for our event that night."
Cons: "I did not take this flight in the end because I got a call AS I WAS BOARDING that my flight was cancelled from Washington to New York and was advised by the American workers at the counter to not get on the flight to Washington since there were less flights to New York from there than RDU."
Pros: "The new premiere plus was pretty nice and roomy with recliner feature and big personal screen. I'll try this again."
Pros: "Flight left on time and arrived almost 30 minutes early."
Cons: "The general shrinking size of airplane seats is ridiculous. And one of the restrooms was not locking properly."
Pros: "Thankful for infight entertainment and wifi"
Cons: "United flight attendants (not former continental) really need attitude overhauls. Customer Service is your job, stop acting as though assisting passengers is an inconvenience to you."
Pros: "The entertainment can stream a large library of movies to your device"
Pros: "Quick and smooth"
Cons: "We were asked to be at the airport 8hrs ahead of time, so we arrived 3am. United desk workers arrived at 4am."
Cons: "Pretty much everything I hated, starting from the time they charged me extra 100 bucks for second luggage which was mentioned as free both by kayak and Lufthansa to me, major breach of customer trust. Apart from that the crew was in general rude, didn't find the experience anywhere close to comfort"
Pros: "The plane was clean, airy, comfortable, and not overbooked. The flight attendants treated me very well. Boarding was easy and the gate agent was extra pleasant."
Cons: "The flight attendants were downright rude to some of the other passengers, the ticketing agent had a nasty attitude and made for a very poor "first contact" experience with the airline. The front desk agents at the United Club in EWR were aggressively officious with a lot of the guests that day as well. Overall, customer service was very poor, even though the attendant on the flight were quite nice to me and gave me great service."
Pros: "Economy class is super cramped. One of the flight attendants was unpleasant."
Pros: "Staff seemed efficient"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats, long delay (due to weather)"
Cons: "Gate attendant accused me of trying to get "free extra baggage" when I simply asked whether there would be gate-checking on this particular flight."
Pros: "First class was fine - nothing too special"
Cons: "delay too long"
Pros: "The hospitality of the crew."
Cons: "The amount of snacks that were served."
Cons: "Video screen did not work"
Cons: "Pilot landed us very hard in good weather."
Pros: "Online confirmation"
Cons: "My seat assignments were changed and we were at the end of the plane next to the bathroom. I know I didn't put those. I don't like the fact that you have to pay for baggage and there is no food provided other than a drink and some really poor substitute even for peanuts. Southwest at least allows you to have a free baggage. It's not the fault of the pilot but it also is very bumpy. The flight crew was fine and it's just the uncomfortable aspects of having my seat assignment changed and the extra charges for anything that makes it comfortable."
Pros: "Wi fi movies"
Cons: "Tiny seats. I'm 6'1" and 225. All passengers need more elbow and leg room."
Pros: "i liked that the flight was smooth and departed onetime and arrived a little early."
Cons: "Terminals were a bit far a part"
Pros: "fast boarding & exiting the aircraft."
Cons: "restroom smelled."
Pros: "Great price and comfortable seating. Also friendly staff"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Good leg room. The snack was good - a waffle cookie. Crew was cheerful. Plane was clean."
Pros: "friendly crew. speedy, reliable flight"
Cons: "insufficient overhead storage. could not accommodate the one carry-on and one personal item room for all passengers."
Pros: "I liked the entire flying experience. It was ideal. Best part to me was the pre check and not having to go thru the line. Flight left early, arrived early, I had a middle seat and it was comfortable."
Pros: "The free programming on your personal device"
Cons: "Drink (Alcohol) options could be better"
Pros: "No surprises."
Cons: "Small seats"
Pros: "All was very good"
Cons: ". Before boarding they said flight was full and there wouldn't be enough room in overhead compartment, so I checked in my carry all. After landing I expected to pick it up as we exited the plane and was told it was on the carousel ."
Pros: "Efficient Boarding"
Cons: "No in seat Video. Free entertainment promised did not work on my laptop."
Pros: "The service and that i could sleep"
Cons: "Gates where too far away in Newark"
Pros: "The plane was on time the crew was helpful and friendly"
Pros: "The plane was exceptionally nice,"
Cons: "Although I purchased my ticket more than four months prior, due to some complication or miscommunication between SAS and US Air, my seat had been filled and someone had to be "bought off the plane" with a voucher and better seat. If someone wouldn't have taken the offer, I would have missed all of my flight waiting on a new connection."
Pros: "No drama. Everything on time. Crews were great."
Cons: "Seats cramped but I'm 6'7" so I should have put more effort into getting a bulkhead or emergency exit seat. My fault."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Short flight , every thing was good f"
Cons: "Flight was likeable short flight"
Pros: "Friendlier attendance."
Cons: "Small glasses of water were offered very infrequently. Needed much much more"
Cons: "The area around me was very dirty. Made me a bit uncomfortable"
Pros: "1st class seats great as was the food."
Cons: "Lesson learned. Those first row seats as spacious as they are do not have stowage areas except overhead. One couple in the opposite front seats took up four spaces of overhead space and pretended they didn't understand when the stewardess made a half hearted attempt to ask people to use one space per seat in the overhead bins. Some people had to check fragile packages due to this issue."
Pros: "The whole experience was great, plenty of room in the seats and leg room. Fun flight"
Cons: "It was all good . Can't say the same for the flight from Huston to Seattle"
Pros: "After having worked Monday 10 am until 7 pm AND then10 pm to4 am i was exhausted boarding a 6:50 am flight. Needless to say i was asleep before we left the runway. No-one bothered me, and I slept the entire flight. Didn't wake up until we landed in Newark and the tires hit the runway. Thanks United!! I'll def be utilizing your airlines again!!"
Pros: "Plane was very clean and seats were comfy"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and no snacks were handed out."
Pros: "RDU to EWR was fine, but the return flight was way oversold, and we didn't even get seat assignments until it was time to board. I purchased our tickets months ago, checked in 24 hrs before, and did not check bags, but we still had to stand online and keep reminding the gate agents that we did not have seats and that my three year-old had a car seat that needed to go in a window seat. Once on board, the first clas flight attendant was awesome! She helped us fix a seating nightmare (agent had given my 3 y/o a seat by himself) and came back to coach during the flight to give my son some wings and to just check on us. She and our safe arrival are the only aspects of the entire experience that deserve any stars whatsoever."
Pros: "Everything was on time and adequate. That seems to be the standard for a great flight these days."
Cons: "No pretzels or peanuts."
Cons: "A lady on the plane threw up 5 plus times. The vomet got me and other passengers. The flight crew did not clean it up and was very rude. We I complained I was told " Who do I think I am" I responded I am a paying passenger. I am very disappointed in United the way this matter was handled and the nonprofessional attitude of the flight crew. This is a very concerning due to the unsanitary and health risks involved. United should look into this ."
Cons: "no food< no entertainment, crying babies, why can some flights be for adults only?"
Cons: "After a 2 hour immigration deal that wasn't uniteds fault we had 15 minutes to get to our gate before our flight started boarding...after rushing to the gate we found out our flight was delayed for 30 minutes, just enough time to grab an Auntie Annie's pretzel and drink. After we returned we discovered that the flight was delayed another 45 minutes...having a 4 hour flight ahead of us we decided to get more substance than a pretzel. After asking the desk person when our flight would be here, she told us they were awaiting a plane and it could be less time than 45 minutes til boarding. There was a restaurant no more than 30 yards from our gate with a television that updated all the flights so we could see. The flight was scheduled to leave the gate at 6:56pm...we got to the gate at 6:45 and they would not allow us to board because they closed the gates and said we were there at 6:46 and they have to close the doors 10 minutes before...we showed the lady our phones which were correct with the time. Basically they screwed us...they can delay flights for over two hours at your inconvenience but the second you're late they show you no mercy. We had to get a hotel for the night (which they didn't pay for) and board an American flight the next day. The desk lady was terrible, had the worst attitude and threatened to call the cops when my husband cursed and said 'this is bullshit' apparently freedom of speech doesn't fly with United...pick a different airline"

Pros: "Flight attendants were amazing !"
Cons: "Seats weren't very comfortable"
Pros: "Nothing. Not even the refund compensated for the lost time and additional expenses incurred from Frontier"
Cons: "6 hour delay. Didn't board plane and still lost our bag"
Pros: "Landing was good"
Cons: "Surprise cost of carry on bags Flight attendents reguests over and over to clean areah"
Cons: "I contacted Frontier about a week before my flight to let them know my friend I was flying to visit had to make an emergency trip to see her father who was dying of liver failure. On the first attempt I was notified that only immediate family members were would be an excuse but that I could try to request through a different faucet of emergency circumstances. I put through another request and was never contacted. I did not fly to Salt Lake but I was still charged even though they could very well have sold my seat to another person and made double the money for the seat. I am very disappointed with the service I received from Frontier."
Pros: "Nice flight."
Cons: "Plane seats were uncomfortable and they offered no free snacks"
Pros: "I was going for a long weekend to NC, the flight was not bad. I wouldn't want to be on the flight for long periods of time"
Cons: "No cushioned seats, seats do not recline"
Pros: "I travel a lot for work and on other airlines almost all of the time. I can't remember any flight I'd been on all summer that was on time departing (20% cancelled altogether, and many more delayed 2-5 hours). It was a very pleasant surprise that this Frontier flight left On Time, and arrived at our destination 15 minutes early! Hooray!"
Cons: "They didn't let me board until last because the computer had an issue with my boarding pass. Also, I wasn't able to check in before I got to the airport - on line - and there was no website option to get me boarding pass on my phone"
Pros: "Tricky low priced tickets"
Cons: "Charges everywhere."
Pros: "Flight was on time and boarding process was orderly and quick."
Pros: "The fluff was really nice overall but the bag situation made me a little flustered"
Cons: "I didn't know for bags you have to use your card. I thought you can use card or cash. That should be mentioned when you book a flight with Frontier."
Pros: "The price of the ticket was great. The seats are large and comfortable."
Cons: "That ERVERYTHING is an e tra cost."
Cons: "Charges for seats and baggage."
Pros: "I liked the price. The flight to Denver was good. Airplane clean, flight attendants courteous."
Cons: "The way they managed the delay was unprofessional. The ladies announcing the reasons of the delay were a little bit rude. For a 7 hours delay, they should give us at least a complementary meal or something."
Cons: "Prices to high"
Cons: "Baggage was late , flight was late. Boarding was late"
Cons: "The hidden fees for seats and bags($300 added to the price of tickets). Crew couldn't answer questions and didn't offer to find out the answer. 1.5 hour delay at the gate then when I finally reached my destination it took over a hour to get my bags (& 30 other passengers bags) to the carousel. I don't think my wife & I are the only ones that won't be using frontier after today"
Cons: "Charge for cabin lugguage and soft drinks"
Cons: "The 4hr delay that wasn't told until post check in. I was forced to rent a car and made it faster than the plane."
Pros: "Everything was perfect"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seating"
Cons: "Charges for carry on and checked bags; not even complimentary water on board"
Pros: "The flight itself was very good as was the crew. There were no delays and we arrived a few minutes early. You couldn't ask for a cheaper flight."
Cons: "The seats were not particularly comfortable, less padded than those of other airlines and this was a new plane. There was absolutely no entertainment - no movies, music, phones, not even a magazine and hardly a place to store one. You are charged for all food and beverages. You are charged for all baggage except one small personal item as well as your choice of seating which it is wise to pick when you make your reservation. A carry on is a bit more than a checked bag."
Pros: "offered a direct flight"
Cons: "seats are very upright and hard, didn't recline at all."
Pros: "Arriving safely in Denver."
Cons: "This was a four hour flight preceded by a four hour and ten minute delay. I feel that the crew could have been a bit more accommodating when people had to use the restroom. Although the fasten seatbelt light was on for most of the flight, I feel as though the flight attendants could have escorted individuals safely to the restrooms. Also, the seats do not recline which made it pretty uncomfortable."
Pros: "Cheap ticket"
Cons: "Paid $130 for a ticket and ended up paying an extra $150 for baggage. Backpack was too big to be considered a Personal Item so $40 for a carry-on. I had tried stuffing into one checked bag so I did not have to pay the extra $40 for a second bag (already paid $35 for the first one). I did not weigh my bag...yeah my fault. Was charged $75 at the counter for overweight fee (61 lbs while 50 lbs is the max). Just be aware of the fees. Also, water is free on flight and everything else is pay."
Cons: "Charged extra to check my bag, charged extra to select a seat, charged extra for anything other than water."
Pros: "This was my return flight and first time on Frontier, it was an effortless flight coming and going, staff were very nice and I will definitely be a frequent flyer on Frontier Airlines."
Cons: "There was nothing I didn't like the plane was clean and the staff were courteous."
Pros: "we had a sudden storm which required us to hold for over an hour before landing. Crew was very professional and pilot excellent to get us down after an hour and a half delay."
Pros: "Friendly and capable crew both ground and in air"
Cons: "Nit picky fees here and there. Carry on baggage fee? $2.00 for a can of soda?"
Pros: "Little leg room. I am 5'9" and could barely clear the seat in front of me. Trays were so small they were of no use. Seats did not have the ability to recline. You could pay extra for more leg room and a reclining seat but really? Baggage fees even varied as one cost one direction and $10 more coming back."
Pros: "I'd rate it excellent if the carry on where not charged and the seat had some cushion and more leg room"
Cons: "Flight time Boarding on time and organized Arm rest is small"
Pros: "Roomy seats"
Cons: "Everything costs extra. Carry on bags, Food, drinks, and seats. Was I supposed to stand on the flight?"
Pros: "The crew on the way to Ohio were fun! There was a delay and they were straight up with telling us why."
Cons: "Plane was dirty."
Cons: "Thought I was getting an excellent deal ($68 round trip) But There is additional costs for everything, flight, seat, snacks (not even a small bag of peanuts), baggage (even had to pay for my carry on bag). I prefer to know the WHOLE price upfront not be told at every turn I need to pay for something else. After my return trip home this will be my last flight with Frontier Airlines."
Pros: "The crew was EXCELLENT! The flight AWESOME!"
Cons: "Had to pay for carry-on and soda."
Pros: "It was nonstop and I got an isle seat going."
Cons: "The seats were hard and you couldn't lean back to sleep on red eye flight."
Cons: "Plus they asked for 200$ to replacing the date of my flight back for a 210$ roundtrip ticket. Not emergency friendly"
Pros: "Courtesy& efficiency of the crew"
Pros: "The staff at the counter in Raleigh was very helpful and the flight crew was great. The lady at the counter there took extra time to help get us seats next to each other."
Cons: "It was not clearly stated that carry-on luggage would be charged $45 per item. This is an unusual policy and should have been clearly and prominently stated when purchasing the ticket. With my wife and I this added $90 to our combined ticket price and we would have flown a different airline had we known this. It seemed like a trick to get folks to pick a cheaper ticket only to make up the cost at the door what an individual would have paid for a competing ticket."
Pros: "Smooth flight, on time"
Cons: "The staff could have been friendlier"
Cons: "At no point was there any info telling us about carry on bag charges. This added a 150 unexpected expense to our trip just for carry ons. Would have chosen a different flight of I would have known. Will never fly frontier airlines again. And will tell everyone I know that is planning on traveling what a terrible experience we had with them."
Pros: "Flight was amazing! I could not tell when we took off or when we landed! Smooth Flight! Awseome flight crew!"
Cons: "I was Excited about the cost of the flight! ($375.00) However, I was very disappointed about being charged for baggage(carry on and checkin $65 one way total of $130.00) and beverages (sodas and juice). Ummm? Had I known about all the fine print I probably would have gone with a different airline atleast I would have not been caught off guard after booking the flight."
Cons: "The planes are so so uncomfortable. I would never choose frontier again unless the route was significantly better (i.e. Nonstop) than any other airlines. I would pay a lot more to avoid frontier otherwise."
Pros: "Crew = funny and helpful."
Cons: "We were on the plane for two hours before taking off, and the crew promised us a voucher that we would get in our emails, but I didn't get anything. Why didn't they check for maintenance problems before boarding everyone? And why did it take 40+ minutes for the maintenance workers to show up to fix the problem?"
Pros: "Boarding was fabulously easy."
Cons: "I did not know during booking about the carry-on fee or the seat fee (!!!! though I later learned that if you didn't select a fee for a seat they would assign you whatever was left, not that that is appealing). You had to pay for everything except water. There was no in-flight entertainment at all. Trays were tiny. I will never fly this airlines again."
Pros: "The crew's sense of humor made the mundane interesting."
Cons: "There was nothing special about the flight. It lacked any reason for me to want to fly frontier and be loyal."
Pros: "The price.. and thats it."
Cons: "Too much to mention"
Pros: "Low fare initially, but gouged by all the extra fees--carry on luggage, seat choice, even beverages weren't complimentary"
Cons: "No personal touch. All very formal and impersonal. Uncomfortable flight."
Pros: "The flight was great,being that it was my first time fying."
Cons: "The restrooms have absolutely no elbow room, nor there was not enough space for anything, especially for a three hour flight from RDU-DEN"
Pros: "The physical flight was fine"
Cons: "Where do I begin? This airline is obviously attempting to maximize their profits but so much at the expense of passengers. There is no comfort in flying in an upright position for many hours. In fact, sitting aboard this flight felt like torture. I will never if at all possible fly on this airline again. I will recommend to my friends that they pay a bit extra to fly another airline. I mean they've all cut corners but Frontier has gone the extra mile in putting profits over any decent airline accommodation. I sincerely hope you guys go out of business."
