Pros: "The crew’s positive energy and great service were truly amazing. Kudos Delta!"
Cons: "Great crew and flight! Cheers!"
Cons: "Not enough leg room. Flights are costly enough and it just seems wrong to upcharge passengers for more legroom. Legroom should be standard outside of first /business class."
Cons: "Seat wasn't comfortable"
Pros: "Flight was smooth and short"
Cons: "The entertainment system kept resetting over and over throughout the flight. And drinks were served late in a not so comfortable temperature cabin. But everything else was ok"
Pros: "Was boarded promptly"
Cons: "Delays both in DETROIT and a huge delay in Shanghai."
Pros: "Easy, fast, simple. Not crowded."
Cons: "Nothing!"
Pros: "No delays. Easy boarding."
Cons: "B.S. all the Delta Boarding groups. Geez, have you lost all common sense! C'mon... I understand the ill/med conditions passengers. How about 1 kid, then 2 kids then 3 kids, w/ cataracts, bladder probelems, Platinum, Gold, Silver, Paper, Plus 1, Plus 2, Main Cabin 1, 2 and 3."
Cons: "The flight was 2.5 hours late. Then it was freezing in the flight. I let the crew know and it warmed up at the front and back of the plane but it was unbearable in the middle. It took me two hours to warm back up!"
Pros: "Fly attendants were very professional"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Too much delay - departure was planned on March 15 @ 7 pm and take off happened on March 16 @ 12pm - a complete failure!!!!"
Pros: "The seats were awful .how many can squeeze in. .horrible"
Cons: "Room to breathe, move a little"
Pros: "Very bad crew. Seats very uncomfortable"
Cons: "Crew could have been better"
Pros: "Great leg room"
Cons: "I was next to an obese person who literally took half of my seat. That was extremely uncomfortable."
Pros: "Smooth. Fast boarding"
Pros: "Everyone is working the gate and on the plane were amazing!"
Pros: "Flight was on time, flight attendants were very nice and professional."
Pros: "Nothing in particular stands out."
Cons: "The boarding process seemed backward, took longer than usual to board the plane."
Pros: "flight attendants"
Cons: "As soon as we all were boarded we where told there was a mechanical issue. Sat on the boarded cramped flight for 2 hours until issue was fixed. If there was a mechanical issue then the plane should’ve not been boarded until it was fixed. Much rather have waited in lobby for 2 hours than on a plane with no food and water. Or at least alllowed us to deboard while issues where resolved."
Pros: "This was my cousins first time flying and the Flight Attendants made her feel very welcomed. They all were very personable."
Cons: "No Gluten free option"
Pros: "Happy to get an earlier flight - and was put in ComfortPlus"
Cons: "Small plane, no entertainment (movies, music)"
Pros: "Delta is not a good place to be"
Cons: "Delta is not good on customer service"
Pros: "I loved the check-in reminders, up-to-date flight info, and overall friendliness and helpfulness of the attendants."
Pros: "It was on time. Flight attendants were courteous. There were snacks."
Pros: "I am liking the new Delta terminal at LAX. The flight crew was nice pleasant and helpful. The pilots kept us informed."
Cons: "The Delta Sky club was small and over crowed. If you go take the first seat spot you can find. It doesn’t get bigger. I have high hopes for the new combined lounge between the terminals. The flight itself felt like an older 737-800 while it had power there were only two and the two others in my row snagged them. I was in Delta Comfort and have to say the extra leg room isn’t a lot."
Pros: "gate staff were great"
Cons: "plane cabin staff looked overworked"
Pros: "On Tim and friendly"
Pros: "Good flight crew"
Cons: "Flight was delayed with no explanation."
Cons: "After fully boarding the plane, we all had to leave because the air conditioning failed. We've traveled five times on Delta this year and every trip has had a significant delay."
Pros: "Crew was as helpful as they could be. Even though they didn't have much info about the delay, they answered questions and stayed calm."
Cons: "2 hour delay. Got a free bottle of water."
Cons: "Flight overbooked and the gate paid no attention to how many bags were being brought onboard. Was forced to check my carry on. I hope it arrived."
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: "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: "Plane was clean. Hotel due to missing connection was nice."
Cons: "Flight delays cause cascade of irritable passengers. Flight out of Phoenix delayed due to late departure from previous location. We were told mechanical reasons was the cause of the delay. This caused many passengers to miss their connecting flight in Atlanta. When we arrived after midnight, one gate person was attempting to help 50 people with morning connecting flights and room accommodations. The airline knew 3 hours prior that they would have tired, hungry, frustrated passengers. To then have to wait more than an hour in a line to get a bed and or a meal was too much for most people. There were other smaller examples of how Delta's staff or procedures were not customer centric. I will avoid Delta for travel in the future, and I am getting out of their stock."
Cons: "Our flight was originally scheduled for departure at 7:45 PM. We got an alert stating that the flight was going to be delayed but we were already almost to the airport when I received the first message on my smartphone. We received three additional alerts making our total wait time at the airport 5½ hours before we could approach the gate and board the aircraft. Seating in immediate gate area was not comfortable. Boarding was chaotic at best with very little control and guidance provided by Delta staff. The audio over the PA system was difficult to decipher much of the time. The only other available boarding status information was presented on the screens stationed near the gate and indicated PREMIUM the entire time during our boarding process and was never updated. We literally had to scramble through the crowd to get to the gate desk and get our boarding passes validated so we could board our flight with our group of passengers. Our seating on board the aircraft was thankfully good which is why I rated Comfort as Okay. We were saddled with one more delay after the flight left the gate and taxied briefly down the runway and then sat there for almost an hour. My suggestions to improve customer satisfaction based on my experience would include the following 1. Provide extended alerts for passengers travelling especially if the anticipated delay is known to the airline more than 2 hours before scheduled flight time. 2. Improve seating in the waiting areas near all Delta gates. 3. Re-orient all staff in proper boarding process and utilizing all available resources properly to provide clear and intelligible (not speeding) overhead audio messaging and current boarding status prompts on displays. 4. Maintain or replace audio equipment if necessary to help improve quality of audio messaging in all boarding areas."
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."
Pros: "Everything else good."
Cons: "N/A"
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: "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: "I was traveling with my young daughter (3 years old) and wife. The crew was really welcoming and accommodative of us. My little girl got the Delta wings pin (including a second one when she lost the first one), and was able to visit the flight deck. Extra kudos for my daughter being able to see a female pilot! :-)"
Cons: "Made me check a small bag and let others carry on 2 and3 bags very rude"
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: "Flight delayed for four hours, then delayed another hour before we left. Delta won't let you pick your seats, so although we were 3rd in line at the gate, they put my family of four at the rear of the plane. I will never fly Delta again."
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: "Arriving and departing flights were at totally opposite ends of airport"
Cons: "complimentary ear plugs for when there are crying children"
Pros: "Pilots made up for delayed departure. Boarding quick and efficient"

Pros: "Yes very pleasurable."

Cons: "There’s no headphones aboard for entertainment"
Pros: "Boarding, entertainment"
Cons: "Arm rests were immobile, meaning could not take advantage of empty seat next to me."
Pros: "Not a full flight"
Cons: "Not unhappy"
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"
Pros: "I would like that the seats were not so small I got 2 people with overweight and I was very uncomfortable the trip"

Pros: "departure and arrival time"
Cons: "the passenger next to me smelled horrible"

Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Communication"
Cons: "Flight delayed and bot enough overhead space."
Cons: "Delays and more delays"
Cons: "Flight delay, no beverage service"
Pros: "Not turbulence"
Pros: "The flight was 30 minutes faster than initially scheduled. It was great."
Cons: "The flight left 10 minutes late, but on my positive comments, this was remedied in the end."
Pros: "Timing of flight routes"
Cons: "Sat on a pillow"
Pros: "Not over crowded and friendly crew."
Cons: "N/A"
Cons: "Start boarding with the last row, not the 1st row - so people settling into the 1st rows do not hold up the people trying to reach the higher numbered rows."
Pros: "The crew and planes were excellent."
Cons: "When we booked our flights the web site did not show us all the possibilities for return flights. When inn Puerto Maldanado we checked on line and discovered we did not have to have the 18 hour and 19 hour lay overs. We rebooked and were hammered with the $400 charges. We will not book future flights with your organization because of this deceptive practice."
Pros: "Entertainment system and new plane"
Cons: "Landing was a little rough"
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: "Smooth flight with no issues at all"
Pros: "Comfy/roomy seats, friendly staff, female pilot!!"
Cons: "It was freezing and blankets were not available. It is typically cold on flights but this felt like sitting in a freezer. That is the o not reason I gave 4 stars and a 3 star for comfort"
Cons: "Flights out of RDU to Philly were late. AA will not let you get on another flight going to the same destination if your checked luggage has been committed to particular flight beforehand. You have to fly with your luggage."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Very cold on board"
Pros: "Boarding, staff, service, arrival all great"
Cons: "No issues"
Pros: "Leg room"
Cons: "Carry on limitations"
Pros: "With American Airlines in general there is no such thing as customer service anymore .Staff at desk at the airport are rude .Could learn a few things from your Australian counterparts at Qantas airlines"
Cons: "No respect for customers anymore"
Pros: "Somewhat disappointing on the snack options..."
Pros: "Slick boarding"
Cons: "No movies on way out."
Pros: "The aircraft was not well maintained, middle holds were small and could not accommodate a normal hand bag. A side hold had to be taped to close it."
Pros: "Worst customer service I have ever experience"
Cons: "They canceled my flight to Florida due to hurricane then refused to refund my return flight ticket. How can I fly back if I never made it there. Bunch of thiefs kept my money and they never got me to my destination."
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"
Pros: "New plane"
Cons: "Crew was ten minutes late"
Pros: "The flight was on timely"
Cons: "The staff was very informative"
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: "Smooth trip"
Cons: "Delay delay delay on the flights"
Pros: "Everything was on time, no delays."

Pros: "Boarding process was easy"

Cons: "Na"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "N/A"
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."
Cons: "There was three hour deley because the pliain didn't arrive on time."
Pros: "Almost everything"
Cons: "We got off the airplane from Singapore to Houston. We almost missed the fight from Houston to Tampa because we didn't have enough time"
Pros: "The cabin was very warm and uncomfortable for the entire flight and tarmac time. The overhead air wasn't working either so that didn't help. Other than that, the flight was great."
Cons: "Cabin temperature"
Pros: "I purchased a ticket for my 18 year old dog $ 125.00 each way to fly with me to Kalispell and back. She is so old that she can not SEE, HEAR, or BARK any longer. I understood she needed to be under the seat for take off and landing but I was told by the ticket agent and flight attendants on my first flight that she could sit on my lap during the flight. Everything was great on the way there. On the returning flight,.... the flight attendant was so RUDE to me. She saw that after we were airborne and at a steady altitude, I brought my dog "Kacey" up into my lap. She immediately raised her voice and stated the dog needed to remain on the ground. I politely explained her condition BUT she refused to listen to anything. I put my poor old dog back under the seat. After approx 20 min I could hear her patting very loud. I lifted her again and asked a different flight attendant for some water. She was very hot on the floor. Or course, the flight attendant saw my little chihuahua drinking the water and said that after she drinks a little more, she must remain under the seat. By now, my husband is getting annoyed. He tried explaining to the flight attendant the medical needs that my dog has " she's on protein shakes" which were approved their security. and how fragile she is. She can't BARK, SEE, or HEAR. Yes, we will be putting her down soon but we took her to Montana for my daughter to say her GOODBYES!! Sorry to say, but that flight attendant has turned me away from UNITED AIR LINES forever. Feel free to call me 352-804-8344. You may send this to UNITED AIRLINES too!! Thanks Karen Hope"
Pros: "The flight was nice crew was nice"
Cons: "The fact it took three calls to get chair to the gate my knees and back is not good.. Some places on a flight the airline took one call few min chair was there this was the longest I had to wait and get someone to call and call"
Pros: "Flight okay"
Cons: "Not enough or any choice of food but that is ok asyou really do not need it unless you have not planned well, so it is partly my fault that I felt the shortage of food!"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"
Cons: "Poor food for the price"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "I slept most of the way"
Cons: "They were out of the crackers & cheese snack"
Cons: "You have taken the enjoyment of flying first class to a whole new low with the new seats they have designed and put in. The lack a privacy from the cabin as well as the design in how the seat is set, comfort and utility of the seat - my tray table didn't even function. It was an expensive 4 hour flight that was not comfortable ..."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled, customer service was useless."
Cons: "Boarding by group is ridiculous. Should be back of the plane people after kids & wheelchairs. One small bag of pretzels & a cup of drink. JetBlue gives many choices of snacks & whole can of drink. DirecTv - $7.99, JetBlue is free. We were a party of 3 that picked our seats to be together. Got to the airport & our seats were split up by desk clerk & she didn't even inform us of seat assignment change. She also put 2 of us in the Exit row without informing us. Did not know we were assigned to Exit row until we boarded. Our overhead bins were full with other passengers carryons. This should not be. Why can't passengers use their own overhead bins. Stewardess would not help us, she said find a spot up front, if not you'll have to check carryons. Terrible."
Pros: "Plane was on time, crew were friendly, helpful"
Cons: "Plane was very worn, entertainment was very limited, seat was not very comfortable for business class"
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Lost luggage twice!!"
Pros: "Great seats, organized boarding"
Cons: "Too many loud unnecessary announcements"
Pros: "Landed on time"
Cons: "Changed gate to another terminal at the last minute, we made it on time buy with an infant and a toddler taking a bus in a raining day was tough."
Cons: "My trip was for my dad's quadruple bypass surgery and the date was changed. I was told by Price Line I would need to pay $400 as fee to change my trip. I received your email so I contacted United directly and they said there was a $200 fee which could be reimbursed since it was a medical situation."
Cons: "My flight last week they had us board and then de plane do to plane maintenance after I traveled litterly all day it added an extra hour. Then this flight Washington connection to Detroit from raleigh the pilot never showed up and extra hour went by, we got a new pilots but, then leading to faulty paperwork that took another hour and thirty minutes after boarding the plan to get sorted. When we got that sorted they then proceeded to tell us that the flight atendent had to leave and we had to wait another 20 min for another atendent to arrive before finally making our way to Detroit. They said to file a complaint and we would be compensated for our wait. Not sure if this is the right spot but I'm giving it a go. Thank you Keith Www.keithschmidt.com"
Pros: "Crew was good, food terrible."
Cons: "Most of it"
Cons: "Flight was delayed a few times , learned once i got to the airport flight was delayed .. and delayed 2 more times while on the plane .... They didnt know which way the bags were located ...(baggage claim or at the door way of exit of the plane )"
Pros: "Flight was nearly three hours late taking off"
Cons: "I was two hours delayed from my originating terminal in Denver due to a snow storm overnight. I arrive into Houston two hours late only to re adjust my remaining flights back to Denver. Two days later. What was supposed to be a one day trip to get my kids to spend it with me in Colorado. Is now turning into a three day filled adventure in airports."
Pros: "The way home"
Cons: "The way to NC. Flight attendant rude."
Cons: "Wi-Fi wasn't available"
Cons: "We had to sit and wait for a while because nobody picked up the captain and co-pilot at their hotel. There was no AC in Raleigh while we were waiting, so the plane got pretty hot. The captain said "they should've known this plane has no AC and hooked up the external power, and I apologize". It wasn't great."
Cons: "Why is it that an a thirty minute flight I can watch entertainment on my own device but when I am on a two-hour flight with a TV in the headrest that I'm not able to watch anything without paying for it first? I've already paid for the ticket, I don't want to pay for freaking a movie too. Especially after having a three-hour layover and having the gate change 3 times on me"
Pros: "The cookie was wonderful . I was shaped like a waffle & had caramel inside. The package even instructed how to warm it up over the top of my coffee cup. Also, all the United personnel were great!"
Cons: "Our flight departure was delayed from Tampa to Chicago cause they switched planes. Thank God I didn't miss my connection flight."
Pros: "Everything went how it should."
Cons: "N/A"
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: "Same as above"
Cons: "Ditt opp"
Pros: "No surprises."
Cons: "Small seats"
Pros: "Even though the flight was delayed on departure, it did not cause a delayed arrival. The crew was professional and courteous."
Cons: "There was very little legroom in economy seating. My knees touched the back of the next row making a very uncomfortable 5 1/2 hours. I think it is ridiculous to have to pay additional fee (up to $99) for extra legroom. I think it is called "premier economy" seating."
Pros: "this flight was only an hour long but it was enjoyable. made it home earlier which is always great. I like having only two seats on each side rather than 3."
Cons: "as short as the flight was, there were a few disturbances. first, the two kids behind me were off the wall. it wasn't a baby crying, they had to be 5 and 7 just screaming and being so loud when their parents just laughed. at 8pm It would have been nice for a crew to quiet them down. second, there was a disturbance by a woman who had to be escorted off the plane which caused us to sit not knowing anything going on for the extra 20 minutes on the runway. I'm so glad they got her off for our safety but we were in the dark about the situation. And United, you need to up your snacks."
Pros: "The service and that i could sleep"
Cons: "Gates where too far away in Newark"
Pros: "Clearly a recent D check plane, very clean and new interior"
Cons: "New screens are nice, but $8 to watch TV for a couple of hours? Take a hint from JetBlue, United, STOP NICKEL AND DIMING CUSTOMERS! This on top of there being two solid rows of economy comfort seating open, and not letting us move back one row to the economy comfort seats since ours wouldn't recline because they were in front of that exit row. On United website, it would've been $25 to upgrade each seat (not horrible), and the flight attendant told us we couldn't when we asked that they were $100+ seats and that there's nothing she could do. Thanks United. Guess I'll go back to being a JetBlue customer."
Pros: "Very professional crew"
Pros: "Had an entire row for myself. Flight was quick and comfortable. Staff was helpful and friendly."
Cons: "The crew did not seem to enjoy their jobs and can the seats get any more uncomfortable? It really is okay to put some padding in the seat cushions. Is it really necessary to charge for the movies?"
Cons: "My checked bags were delivered with multiple footprints. Someone was standing on my luggage."
Cons: "Offer snacks or drinks on board"
Pros: "On time process"
Cons: "Charging carry on"
Cons: "Sometimes I wonder if it worth buying a seat. Always packed in full row with other seats empty."
Cons: "Seats make it impossible to sleep"
Pros: "Smooth flight on time, attentive staff, easy on and easy off, and bags arrived quick at pickup."
Pros: "Very little. It’s a budget airline and it shows."
Cons: "Plenty. It’s budget in every sense of the word. Everything is an upcharge. Seats don’t recline. Water ain’t free. No snacks. Seats are thin and you’re jammed in. The check in staff is pure amateur hour compared to traditional carriers. Baggage claim was a bewildering mess."
Cons: "More space to breath. More comfortable seats."
Pros: "Crew was not as surly as usual."
Cons: "I guess some padding on the seats is out of the question, so never mind."
Pros: "Great economical way to get there!"
Pros: "Nothing complicated; everything ran smoothly."
Cons: "Snakey pricing. Bare-bones amenities."
Pros: "Price was better than other carriers. Seats were adequate, comparable to other discount airlines. Flight attendants did a wonderful job. Flight on time and uneventful. Good experience."
Cons: "I'm still not accustomed to the "pay for everything" approach to flying. I paid the $20 for a seat up front, and shipped my bag ahead via UPS to save money."
Pros: "Flight crew was professional, courteous, kind and knowledgeable."
Cons: "Check in kiosks need to have military options available to avoid paid luggage."
Pros: "uncrowded, non-stop flight to someplace warm for a low price... how can you go wrong?"
Cons: "just some bad weather out of MKE which delayed us, but that's not the airlines fault"
Cons: "Delayed an hour..while boarded. Happened on flight in too"
Pros: "All"
Cons: "None"
Pros: "It was cheap"
Cons: "I had to find another flight on my own to replace the second leg of my trip from Denver to Salt Lake City. The customer service was ridiculous."
Pros: "It got me where I wanted to go."
Cons: "Frontier has a nice cost up front, but the bag charges and seat charges are excessive and gratuitous. I would have much preferred a greater cost up front, as it was still cheaper than the competition in the long run. I also hate their seats."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "After paying for the flight. We had to pay to get seats guaranteed next to each other. And the charges for everything including a ridiculous amount for a can or soda or water and a snack."
Pros: "Other passengers, boarding"
Cons: "Costs are hidden until you've already paidfor flight, then they tell you the cost is going to double because of the other misc costs that you weren't made aware of before booking your flight. They wont even give free cup of coffee and charge you $3 for 6oz. Hot colored water. If you have to pay for the coffee, it should be something other than swill. Felt taken advantage of. Wont fly this airline again."
Pros: "No seat back lowering!"
Cons: "One hour late"
Cons: "On flight from Tampa to Chicago nobody charged me for carry on,and on a way back they charged me 60 dollars,so,this is the last time to travel with Frontier"
Pros: "Nothing!"
Cons: "Lots of delays and cancellations. Customer service is not helpful. They only care about their ticket and will not reschedule you with another airline."
Pros: "They only had one plane, it was weather delayed at its previous airport, then it ariver with mechanical problems. Customer service promised me the flight would be leaving that day, it ended up being cancelled. We were at the airport for 9 hours before they cancelled which meant that rebook in a flight on a different airline cost twice as much and was difficult and could only be done for the next day. Customer service was useless. The gate crews are third party contractors and can't do anything because of frontier's policies. I reported them to Dept of transportation and they keep sending the response that they have too many complaints to respond to and they wI'll get to it eventually."
Cons: "Worst travel experience ever."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable and the thin profile gave a feeling of roominess."
Cons: "Baggage fees and carry of fees. You can save by paying online but I didn't learn that until the second time around."
Pros: "The flight was very good. It was on time and crew was nice"
Cons: "You have to pay extra for everything which was a bit much. It was cheaper to have luggage checked than carry on which did not make cents."
Pros: "I like the easy boarding to the plane. Departure on time."
Cons: "I didn't like to be charge $45 for a small carry on bag Southwest airlines doesn't charge for carry on. I think water should be offer for free and they never offered in my flight."
Pros: "The cabin was comfortable and the crew did their job efficiently. Nothing stood out to impress me."
Cons: "The after ours was overbooked, so they boarded us andand made us wait until they could find 3 volunteers which took a decent amount of time. We were also not informed of this until we had already been sitting there waiting. After our flight left the gate we then had to sit and wait to take off because we missed out time slot to fly into Philly. It wasn't terrible but could have been handled better. It was very uncomfortable for myself and even more uncomfortable for a friend with osteoporosis and compression fractures in her back."
Pros: "Not much. Crew was great."
Cons: "Once you get done paying for everything it's not really a discount. Seats are comfortable. Space is very limited."
Cons: "It would have been appreciated if at check in they told us you have to pay for carrying on and let us check our bag instead of charging us $60 at the gate and leaving us no other options. Super poor customer service!!!!!!"
Pros: "The plane was clean, the flight was smooth and the crew was excellent!!!"
Cons: "We had to pay for everything, baggage, a nonalcoholic drink and to sit next to each other."
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: "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"
Pros: "Very low quality seats and definately not worth the extra money we paid for the so called more leg room No plug on under the seats and no wi-fi. 1.99 for a soda really? Too much mo way for baggage. Will not fly frontier again, you can get better seats and accommodations for the same price or cheaper on other airlines. Definately would choose United or American Airlines"
Cons: "There was delay on the plane due to mechanical issues with cargo door not being able to close The plane was stuffy"
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: "On time safe and sound"
Cons: "Rough flight"
Pros: "This was my first airplane flight ever. I was extremely anxious. However I don't think it could have gone better. I had a cat with me and everyone was welcoming."
Cons: "The only things I'm upset about it there were no healthy options on the menu. Even sodas like Izzie or some Bolthouse Farm/Naked juices would be nice to have for those who avoid anything processed. Fresh fruit would be good too. i was also shocked that I had to pay $80 extra for my ONE bag to fly to and fro, and that my cat had to count as my personal item so I had no choice but to pay for one. I believe we should have a free personal item and 1 free carry on."
Pros: "Easy check in, comfortable plane, friendly staff."
Cons: "Everything is extra. Once you buy your tickets you find out you have to pay for your seat assignment, carry on luggage is $30.00 each way for a total of $60.00, checked baggage is $25.00 each way for a total of $50.00. What really got me was that they charges passengers $1.99 for a cup of water on the flight. Passengers should take this into account when comparing to other carriers."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Seats don't recline and for a red eye flight I felt this was a horrible experience to try and get some kind of sleep. First experience with Frontier and unless they make changes its definitely our last! And our luggage still hasn't caught up with us three days later!"
Pros: "I am 6' 3" no place for my head to rest, I had to lean forward for most of the flight very uncomfortable had good leg room though maybe put option in head rest like a car would have that would be really nice you can still make money with comfort."
Pros: "Smooth flight, courteous staff and on time."
Cons: "Be sure to get there definitely two hours prior due to their strict policy about boarding. It would be nice to offer something for their flight, snack, etc. At least water."
Pros: "price of ticket"
Cons: "charging for carry on"
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "The prices for snacks and drinks were ridiculous. Can't believe they don't give free sodas."
Pros: "The website did a great job of explaining all of the odd extra charges. Prices for baggage were discounted because of the offseason, but I would have been annoyed if I paid the much higher "normal" pricing. The math would have made the tickets more than major airlines that include food, entertainment, and staffed baggage check-in counters."
Cons: "Each time waited 25-45 minutes before staff arrived at baggage check-in. Then 4 employees would come at the same time. I understand saving costs, but couldn't they just use less staff to always have somebody at the counter? The labor cost would be the same."
Pros: "Even though there was a ton of cancellations and delays from the day before due to Chicago weather, we had no problems with leaving on time and even arrived at our destination early. Flight crew was pleasant. Too bad TSA security took forever. They must have been short of help. Only one person checking tickets & ID's and only 1 lane for the scanners. Wtf? Good thing we got to airport early or we'd miss our flight."
Pros: "I'm very happy Everything is good"
Pros: "chairs were all right compared to the flight from Tampa to Denver. Those chairs were uncomfortable."
Cons: "The tight quarters"
