Pros: "No delays. Easy boarding."

Pros: "Customer service on the phone."
Cons: "Delays all day on delta. On my way out and on the return flight."

Pros: "On time boarding. Good entertainment options, friendly staff"

Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "AC was not working properly and it was very hot and miserable trip"

Pros: "Staff tried to be helpful"
Cons: "Silly series of events. Maintenance problem before flight left previous city, got to us and we boarded only to deplane for more repairs. Ended up with another plane, five hours later. For a 44 min flight. Would’ve been easier to drive!"

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

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Employees at the Atlanta airport have a SERIOUS chip on their shoulders. Just when you thought seats couldn't get any smaller or closer together. Paid for priority boarding but the boarding pass still said zone 3. Employees could care less."

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."

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: "I was delayed coming from an international flight and was so thankful for the help from delta at the counter and at the gate. I did lose my bag but that was my fault in the confusion of jfk. I got my bag in 2 days."
Cons: "When i got my bag back the handle wouldn't go down fully. Baggage handlers must've mishandled it and bent something."

Pros: "On time...great service!"
Cons: "Seats were a bit narrow."

Pros: "Customer service very courteous and friendly."

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: "Too many boarding calls for different levels of service."

Pros: "delayed. equipment failure."

Pros: "Timely departure."
Cons: "My daughter was traveling alone (as a college freshman) for the second time and her bag was overweight. The counter agent was impatient with her and made her feel embarrassed"

Pros: "The Delta staff at the Marine terminal at La Guardia were fantastic and saved the staff that re-issued tickets at JFK."
Cons: "5 minutes until boarding at JFK we were told to transfer gates; upon arriving by shuttle to the new gate, passengers were informed the aircraft was downsized and 20 people needed to be bumped. I volunteered since I had a flexible schedule so Delta re-issued me a ticket at 9am JFK for a 10am flight out of La Guardia. I trusted them I'd make it in time and they said they called taxis for us so we left to go catch them. Actually, no taxis were to be found so we had to call our own and were significantly delayed. I was in the first group of 5 people to be re-issued and arrive at La Guardia. Everyone else bolted but my new boarding pass didn't work and they actually didn't properly re-issue my ticket as I had been booked as leg 3 of my international flight from Malaysia. After they called three different departments including China they were able to print my ticket at 9:54am so I sprinted through the security and to my gate and was able to somehow make the flight as they were closing the door. However probably 14 or so of the original bumped passengers definitely didn't make it."

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "plane left on time"
Cons: "seats were too close, luggage was delayed,"

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."

Cons: "The stewards crew was very very very rude. The airplane looked like its going to come apart any minute. We could actually see rust in the wings of the airplane. I think the plane should be retired, for the sake of the flyers!!!!"

Pros: "On the flight I got on the 8:20 to Reagan the flight attendances were wonderful! Defiantly made up for me having a aweful time on the 7:20 flight. I loved your flight attendants on this flight!"
Cons: "So I arrived in Atl was on standby for the 7:20 flight to Dca airport I had already paid $50 for standby! I got cleared for this flight and bumped to delta comfort. I was super excited to finally get upgraded! Then the plane had problems we were then again delayed and had to deplane. We were told this would be a 2 hour delay. I proceeded to try an get on the next flight at 8:20 while asking about a window seat the lady told me I would have to pay an additional $19! Well I had already paid $50. So the nice lady put me on that flight after I had already asked for window seat. She put me in the middle seat! I get that planes have problems and flights are delayed! There was so much bad yesterday then good and I feel like delta should know. It's more and more bad everytime I fly! Please fix these problems!"

Cons: "With only one gate attendant, boarding was slow and unorganized."

Cons: "Landing at Reagan national is generally pretty bad"

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."

Pros: "Quick hop from Cincinnati to DC - efficient, nice flight."

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."

Cons: "Plane was not clean and had dirty kleenex and yogurt containers in the pouch. Flight attendant told me to just not use the pouch."

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."

Pros: "Nothing"
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: "The gate was so far away for a flight that takes 29 minutes."

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: "It was a bigger plane with more room"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The plane was clean, and the stewardesses were really nice. Even the passengers were really nice!"
Cons: "I had to check my bag even though I usually carry on with me."

Pros: "It was quick"
Cons: "It was very small and they didn't even serve a beverage or peanuts"

Pros: "That eventually they allowed me to get home"
Cons: "The plane was delayed 90 minutes and there was only 1 update to the time made available by sending me a text (after I was already at the airport). The boards were updated with the delay estimate but delta never thought to send out the info to the passengers outside of 1 single text. Their policy made asking for a refund for THEIR mess up unavailable. I will never fly delta again."

Cons: "More leg room"

Pros: "Flight was comfortable and crew was very helpful!"
Cons: "Be on time!"

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."
Cons: "N/A"

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: "Baggage lost."

Cons: "I'm a tall person and there wasn't an option to get a seat with any extra leg room. Additionally, the gate staff were not helpful or informative about the flight and rushed when it was time to board."

Pros: "The free entertainment."
Cons: "Everything was great."

Pros: "Ease of boarding with the group numbers"

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."

Cons: "The captain had the crew return to their seats during drink service due to turbulence. Despite the fact that there was 2 and half hours remaining in the flight and the turbulence was gone, they never returned to complete the drink service."

Pros: "Very courteous crew.pilot was amazing!! Landed in tough wind"
Cons: "Turbulence"

Cons: "Never knew flying domestically with a company named American would be so impossible. A true joke. Never had such difficulties traveling about. Super unsatisfiee and will not be traveling with them again. I urge everyone considering to purchase other airlines as well."

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."
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "The flight attendant was super super nice and helpful"
Cons: "Had to rush to catch this connecting flight. At boarding time, which we just made, the previous flight had just landed and people starting to deplane. All we would have wanted was an accurate announcement versus an unfriendly feeling from the gate agent"

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."

Cons: "I hate American airlines. It is the WORST. We were held for almost 4 hours waiting for "maintenance call" then flight was cancelled. THEN it took two full hours to get back checked bags. By ths point it was 5 pm, had been at airport since 8:30 -- no food offered, no apologies, not even a glass of water. Of course, no flights back to US so I was stuck an extra day, completely messed up school and work. I THOUGHT I was booking with Iberia but it was a code share. I WILL NEVER fly American Airlines again!"

Pros: "."
Cons: "."

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."

Cons: "The flight was cancelled. I didn't receive a refund or free hotel accommodations. I've been on flights in Africa where free hotel accommodations were standard for a layover over 3 hours. A little embarrassing that an airline in America can't afford a hotel for people stranded in a city overnight."

Pros: "Boarding, staff, service, arrival all great"
Cons: "No issues"

Cons: "We were rushed onto the plane to sit on the tarmac. After waiting to take off for 45 minutes, we were told that our route had been closed and they were looking into other options. This was a flight from NYC to DC, route is closed? Once we finally got into the air, all was good."

Cons: "ATC delay on take off and then a 10 min wait for a gate a DCA. Just disappointing in adding delays."

Pros: "Lots of space and very accommodating. The updates via email were helpful"

Pros: "Pulled from get on time. Short hold on runway. Easy landing."
Cons: "Still arriving in Washington where we have no gate. Being on time stinks because you still sit on runway. AT the destination. I would focus on quicker turn around and less accommodation of highly variable flight times in tight NE corridor"

Cons: "We sat on the tarmac after landing for 40+ minutes."

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."

Cons: "They could've fed us or least gave us more drinks when we were rerouted and stick in the Norfolk airport for hours."

Cons: "Plane from BDL was delayed which led do a missed connection in DCA. Rebooked on the 335 pm flight which is 3 hours later than my original arrival time. Very inconvenient for me as I had previous plans."

Pros: "Good view"
Cons: "Breakfast does not have good things to eat. Too cheap ones.."

Cons: "When the pilot took off at LGA he said "everyone here is trying to take off at the same time" so we'd be delayed by 30 min. Not once was there a mention of any other reason. By the time we got to DC I had JUST missed my connecting flight. It was listed nowhere on the departures screen and I realized I had to take an outdoor bus to the other half of the "c" terminal which was very confusing. I got there and had missed the connecting flight and stand in line for 20 min for someone to tell me that I would be stuck in DC overnight. At this point rain had started pouring and they told me that because my mishap was due to weather they would provide no meal or hotel voucher. Weather was not the issue and I was stuck in DC overnight by myself and not compensated for hotels or meals."

Pros: "The crew was good."
Cons: "Washington airport grounded our flight for no apparent reason while we were on the runway in Indy about to take off, then didn't tell us when we could expect the delay to end."

Pros: "Overall smooth trip and congenial staff."
Cons: "This is coming from a western audience but there could have been more entertainment options."

Pros: "The delay of 1 1/2 hours far exceeded the 30 minute flight."

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 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: "Everythingit was good"
Cons: "$75 to pay to change the time of flight, is a lot of money for a person who has roundtrip tickets on the same da"

Pros: "The new premiere plus was pretty nice and roomy with recliner feature and big personal screen. I'll try this again."

Cons: "Everything was excellent. I got upgraded to first class, the flight arrived early and I was on the left side of the aircraft so I had an excellent view of DC as we came in for a landing."

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: "Service was nice & early."

Pros: "Quick and smooth"
Cons: "Nothing"

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: "Delayed because of mechanical problems and did not announce gate changes."

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."

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: "Uncrowded flight so there were lots of extra seats!"
Cons: "No food or snacks provided for free."

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: "Short flight , every thing was good f"
Cons: "Flight was likeable short flight"

Cons: "Small glasses of water were offered very infrequently. Needed much much more"

Cons: "It was delayed so I had to take another flight. I've been trying to get this flight refunded"

Pros: "We were well compensated for a traveling fiasco. Our plane died in Newark. Our new plane wasn't big enough for 12 of us. It was a pretty crummy to spend Easter Sunday at the airport while our entire family celebrated the holiday. I do really appreciate the travel certificates we received for our trouble."
Cons: "As I stated above, we were stuck at the airport for the duration of Easter Sunday. We were supposed to be home by 1:30pm. Kind of a bummer to have wasted the entire holiday; but I guess that's what you get for traveling on holidays."

Cons: "I paid the 25.00 for my small bag which could have easily been a carry on, but I had a purse and small carry bag. I felt that WAY too many folks had backpack and two small carry ones, but by bringing them to the gate - the announcement was made its a full flight so you can check your bag for FREE! Next time, I will not follow the rules and just simply check at gate?? That is message loud and clear from your gate folks."

Pros: "Crew was very attentive."
Cons: "Was delayed almost half an hour."

Pros: "Nice Flight Crew"
Cons: "There was no leg room what so ever! I am 6 foot tall and around 275 pounds. The seats were made for children, not made for an adult. My seat was so uncomfortable my legs actually went numb, mainly for the fact that I couldn’t move because of how tight the seats were. I have flown many times and this was by far the most uncomfortable flight ever! I will never fly again if this is how planes are going to be."

Cons: "Prices to watch Tv"

Pros: "Flight crew was very friendly and helpful. Very unusual for a US airline. Thank you!"
Cons: "Not enough time between transit. Barely made the connecting flight. Boarding pass did not list which terminal I needed to go so when you hop in the train at O'hare, you are not exactly sure. O'hare is not well-organized. The 1 stop immigration/custom check actually was very slow. The regular check was very chaotic, with officers yelling info everywhere. Felt like I was in the market."

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: "On time Smooth ride Actually slept"

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: "My flight to O'hare from Reagan international was fine but my returning trip was just terrible. After spending extra hours waiting due to a delay, we were about 30 min from DCA and our flight was redirected to N.C where we spend an extra 2 hrs waiting for the plane to re fuel and the reason the airline's flew us to N.C is supposedly due to weather in D.C but i was told by locals that its hardly rained. I had spent 11hrs total in airports yesterday. I could have taken that trip via car in 12hrs and saved myself $300 bucks or more. I am beyond unsatisfied with how my travel experience was. From rude united employees to a bad flying experience i will not use united anymore and frankly, me and all the other passengers on that flight should be compensated somehow for that experience. The only easy thing about this trip was purchasing my tickets through kayak and how well there service is. Thank you"
Cons: ".."

Pros: "Everything was on time and adequate. That seems to be the standard for a great flight these days."
Cons: "No pretzels or peanuts."

Pros: "Nothing."
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: "Seat was in the middle of the isle, flight attendant kept bumping into me. The guy sitting next to me didn't fit in his seat so he took up most of the room. Very unpleasant experience, especially after spending money to upgrade to more comfort."

Pros: "left on time, the wireless service on the plane is a great idea."
Cons: "they should serve free snacks"

Pros: "Ground crew at gate were helpful."
Cons: "Flight delayed, gate changed, etc."

Pros: "Pleasant"

Cons: "Always ceases to amaze me how a screening process is so organized at every other airport except Cleveland Hopkins!!!"

Pros: "Flight attendant in the back was great. Plane side baggage woman in DC was also great."
Cons: "2+ hrs delayed due to mechanical issue on flight from Chicago to DC No snacks"

Pros: "Everything went very well . We flew down on United and back on Southwest . Both flights were full and everyone was quiet and polite . Thank God !"

Pros: "Smooth Flight"
Cons: "No movies nor Internet"

Cons: "Besides the flight itself being delayed for hours, after we boarded we were kept inside the plane for over 2 hours waiting for the pilots to arrive."

Cons: "Flight was delayed multiple times due to incoming aircraft (which was our aircraft), numerous gate changes, then my suitcase didn't make it with me. Didn't get home until close to 4am with no suitcase :("

Pros: "It was a short flight."

Pros: "Flight attendants were amazing !"
Cons: "Seats weren't very comfortable"

Cons: "No snacks, just soft drinks. Seats are just tolerable. Entertainment was OK once I figured out how to turn it off and read a book instead."

Pros: "The flight was on-time."
Cons: "The seat, again, was the bad news."

Pros: "Fine for what I expected"
Cons: "Fine for what I expected"

Pros: "Flights were on time! Flight attendants were really pleasant and both flights were really smooth despite some turbulence at times!"

Pros: "efficient boarding good information from pilot"
Cons: "arrival 45 minutes late"

Pros: "Time management"
Cons: "Service"

Pros: "I have gotten used to the added costs for baggage. At least they didn't charge me for a seat assignment this time. The crew were nice and the flight went well."

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"

Pros: "Everything went smoothly for the most part. Any chance you will get on flight wifi soon?"

Cons: "Lost bags"

Pros: "Getting off the plane was the best part"
Cons: "Babies crying kicking my seat screaming in my ear"

Cons: "seats"

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."

Cons: "Same screaming infants. They were able to sleep but allowed to roam aisles."

Cons: "Plane was dirty, flight delayed, lost my bag, awful."

Pros: "On time, smooth landing, polite flight attendants"
Cons: "Seats, tray tables, pay for carry on"

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: "Courtesy& efficiency of the crew"
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "Despite DIA being closed the day before, we were only 35min late for departure, flight was without event and a timely arrival at DC. It may have been cheap, but you got what you paid for..."
Cons: "Bloody small seating, no refreshments."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "the crew was incredibly rude (to others and myself) the flight was delayed three hours and we weren't notified until we were supposed to board"

Pros: "It was fine--took off, polite crew, and landed safely. Can't complain about that."
Cons: "Our plane was delayed for over an hour. Picking up a bag from Frontier takes forever because you have to check what would otherwise be a carry-on. I wasn't aware of this as it was my first time flying with Frontier. Knowing that, I'd be able to schedule better. Don't love that they don't really give any refreshments or snacks."

Cons: "There was a 4 hour delay that a notice went out 2 hours before boarding- which is too late because everybody was already there. And the email still encouraged us to come to the airport just in case. Which meant sitting around an airport 5 hours. Also, there are no trays on the back of your seat. There is a small metal bar that pulls down but it is too narrow for a computer, tablet, book or even to sit a cup of coffee on- which by the way- costs $1.99."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Cons: "There was no mention of a delay while boarding but it took an extra 40 minutes to get started. There were storms in dc and our plane had to be redirected to a different airport. We were not given accurate information or updated with any frequency. We would be told more information is coming in 15 minutes, then sit for an hour and hear nothing. i could not update my driver that was at the original destination airport. While stuck on the plane at the new airport we were told we could not get off the plane or we would not be allowed back on and if we decided to get off and drive we could not get our checked bags. Snacks were not offered for hours and more than one flight attendant said they were out of everything and running out of water. When they finally offered food, full price was still the only option and they had everyone line up in the back of the plane, blocking both lavatories. Half way through the line we were told we could close the doors and prepare to take off and everyone remaining was sent back to their seat. We waited another half hour to actually take off."

Cons: "They nickel and dime you to death. Leg room is horrible if your over 4 feet tall."

Pros: "I just plain like the Frontier method as it has been done for years. The pricing, seating, employees and most everything else just works."
Cons: "I've traveled with Frontier for years and on previous flights to DCA, I thought I should blame the baggage claim delay on the airport. Now I am told it is a Frontier responsibility and I am livid. It gets worse every trip. This time it took an hour to get our bags and it was clearly unnecessary. The first bags came out at about 30 minutes, but after that they dribbled out with no explanation whatsoever. Someone is a real laggard and they need to be fired! This experience was so bad that it takes precedence over our previous beefs. Boarding could be much better from back to front and the new seats are terrible, but like I said, if the baggage could be fixed, I would be willing to concede a few. At this point, I am ready to jump ship to Southwest."

Pros: "Early Arrival"
Cons: "Paying for a seat"

Pros: "Good travel day!"
Cons: "I took the time to fill in my frequent traveler number. I did not receive TSA Precheck boarding passes like I should have."

Pros: "tray tables, great sleep, cool goat, they let me on with 5 minutes to spare. no frills. wow!"
Cons: "not much"

Pros: "The gate crew was upbeat and kept everyone informed. They took a bad situation and made it bearable."
Cons: "Of course, being delayed an hour is not much fun, but other than that, everyone at Frontier did a great job."

Pros: "except for the food and what entertainment it was over all good"
Cons: "could not pay cash"

Cons: "they cancelled the fligh on me - over booked"

Cons: "Having to sit on the plane for four hours in the same position of the seat."

Cons: "They charged me 70 for bags.... Which is insane.... Without warning basically."

Pros: "Flight was on time. Arrived early. Crew pleasant. Hate the add on's but that is Frontier. New seats not comfortable"

Pros: "They chage me $30 for a standard carian( bag)"

Pros: "The crew was extremely friendly and the initial cost of the flight was excellent however the only reason the initial flight cost was cheap is that everything is an add on ... Checked bags cost $35, carry-on bags cost $40! Everything but water costs extra on the plane, and you even have to pay $13 to choose your "normal" seat! I will not fly Frontier again because after I sum the additional costs I can fly a comparable airline with additional services that are free when compared to Frontier."

Cons: "Frontier not only raised their baggage rates, but they failed to load the luggage of at least seven passengers onto a one-way flight."

Pros: "The crew and boarding. Since I paid for a better seat, I was in front of the line."
Cons: "My seat didn't recline even though I paid an extre $50 for a better seat. Seating is very uncomfortable for me if I can't recline my seat slightly. Seats need to be more ergonomically designed for comfort. Also, not music or TV. The old planes use to give you these choices. The new planes suck!!!!!"

Pros: "Crew was nice and had a soft landing. You do get one free personal item wether it be a backpack or suitcase it's just supposed to fit under your seat and i put mine in overhead anyway so im sure it's fine as long as you get on the plane. so not sure what everyone else was rating. if you plan on extra baggage add it online it's much cheaper if you don't get it online add it at your check in kiosk BEFORE you go through security and it will save you 20 bucks."

Pros: "They should offer a tiered check-in scheme for baggage so it should be cheaper for those with small bags that are just checking it in for the convenience of others to not be cramped needlessly with baggage in their leg space."

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"

Pros: "Staff was friendly."
Cons: "Extra 20% cost of my fare just to bring a carry on bag. I already paid $450, this was highway robbery!!! Having to pay $20 to $50 extra just to select a seat. Plane layout now hows even more crowded seats that are thin plastic like you would get on a tour vehicle where you would only sit for 1 hour. Micro-sized fold out trays can't hold an ipad and coffee cup. Plane left 45 minutes late for no reason. No TS-Pre check. I could go on. I will never fly this airline again."

Pros: "It left on time"
Cons: "Pay for snack and drink"

Pros: "Discounted fare"
Cons: "Nickel & dime for everything Called others up in the checkin line, who were late for their flight before us, causing us to be late and miss flight. Do yourself a favor. Pay a little more, and get a better flight."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The seats are horrible! It ruins the entire flight! Uuugh."

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: "The flight left and landed on time"
Cons: "Issues with check in Paid for check in bag twice Can use electronic ticket Confusion of man at front check in counter with multiple trips to security then back because of ticketing problems changes in departure time with no clarification very soon before the flight error in departure time postings"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The seats are extremely thin, very closely positioned, absolutely everything is for a fee, so if you weren't exhausted from sitting, you were exhausted from getting nickel and dimed. I will stay away from any Frontier flights from now on."
