Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "I was allowed to do a "courtesy check" for my bag on both flights. This made it easier for me to get on the plane. The wait time to pick up my suitcase was minimal. Way to go!"
Pros: "On time, all as planned"
Cons: "30 minutes late but because of CO try ruin at SeaTac."
Pros: "Quick and simple flight. I appreciated the free beer to get me thru it"
Cons: "Super uncomfortable! Smallest prop plane ever. It rattled and bumped the whole way and seemed very old and busted. Not what I expect from Alaska"
Pros: "Flight was on time, plane was clean. Appreciated the care of the phone agent when we needed to make a change."
Cons: "Husbands upgraded seat 6C was terribly uncomfortable. My row and one other were completely skipped with food services I’m mean completely, no cracker no offer of food for purchase nothing. When I asked if there would be an opportunity to purchase food I was told that there would be three more carts....nope just nope. First time I ever have needed to purchase something to eat and it was complete unavailable. When the last cart came by I asked again and was treated rather bruskly of course I was just too “hangry” to care. First truly horrid trip I’ve ever experienced. This was not a full flight. Not sure what the heck was up but I’ve never been so glad to get off a flight."
Pros: "Very simple and easy trip. The flight attendants even found a postcard my friend had left at the gate earlier in the day and gave it to me on the flight."
Cons: "Airlines are so scared to fly in inclement weather. I knows it’s safer but if it’s raining and there’s no sign of lightning it’s probably safe to leave."

Pros: "Very efficient the entire way through. No hiccups, smooth sailing from Burbank to Portland."
Cons: "When I was assigned a seat, I had to find out myself. Wasn't informed. Requested for coffee on the flight and, although there was turbulence that got in the way, they never checked back with me if I wanted coffee. Small notes, but would have made the trip excellent."
Pros: "Friendly and helpful staff"
Pros: "My flight was at 6:45 and so the first domestic flight out was much more crowded than I thought. People were cutting claiming they’re late. No staff other than at the entry. Voices were raised as one man refused to let two others to just cut and walk right past him."
Pros: "The roomy seats. The process for boarding.. friendly staff."

Pros: "Exellent Service"
Pros: "The crew was very kind and friendly"
Cons: "They ran out of the food I wanted"
Pros: "Everything from the booking to the flight was fabulous. I couldn't be more pleased with how smoothly this flight went. I was traveling alone, so I was nervous about that until taking this flight. Every single staff member made sure I was feeling comfortable and very kind. In this same weekend, The plane is very roomy, and I took coach. I am 5 foot 9, so it's hard to find space for my legs. I did not have this problem at all, even with the person in front of me reclining their chair!! They have plugs for your charger for each individual seat, and the overhead lights don't blind you if your passenger buddy is using one and you're not. I love that!!! I will only use Alaska from here on out."
Cons: "There was absolutely nothing wrong with this flight."
Pros: "I continue to like Alaska Airlines and their accomadations."
Pros: "Love that you have complementary wine on short flights and chees-it's were a nice change for a snack!!"
Cons: "My flight back from Salt Lake City has a lot less friendly staff"
Cons: "It was the worst flight experience i have ever had!!. Our flight was scheduled for departure at 845 pm July 5th, and did not end up departing until 203 am!! We had to sit in the airport for 8 hrs, i barely had any money left and had to use it on food and snaks while we waited. The staff was very rude. I had asked them different times what was going on, because the time of departure kept changing and what were my kids and i supposrd to do, and they just said sorry and dont know what to tell you. After spending my last bit of money on food for my kids and i, I was told by another passanger that the airlines were giving vouchers for food. They never once in the 4 or 5 times i talked to them, offered or told me about the vouchers. It was a terrible experience all around!! We landed in portland at 330 am and had to still drive 3 hours home. we didnt get home until 630am. Ridiculous!!!! I was and am still very upset about the whole thing. Also the staff that was so rude in SaltLake City, every time i would see a concerned or upset passenger go up to talk to them, as soon as they would walk off the staff was over there giggling with each other about it. So Very RUDE!!! Another passanger said that Alaskan Airlines has habbit of having problems with delays . If this is the kind of experience that comes with flying Alaskan, then i will never fly with them again.!!! or go througj expedia"
Pros: "The free beverages and snack"
Cons: "That our flight got canceled the night before"
Pros: "Free movies helped time pass quickly."
Pros: "Service was great"
Pros: "On time take off"
Pros: "The 52 year old airline assistant, who looks about 32 was very nice to us and understanding when she knew we had so much travel ahead of us. She was very nice."
Cons: "So uncomfortable. We had a 25 hour traveling day ahead of us and needed some sleep. It's just soooo uncomfortable and squished. It's painful to sit for long periods of time, let alone try to get some sleep. The girl in front of me adjusted in her seat and totally smacked me in the head when I was trying to lay my head on the table to give my poor back a break. Babies, a lot of babies, and dogs, not good for trying to catch some z's either."
Pros: "On time, friendly staff, clean plane"
Cons: "Slow drink service"
Pros: "I was checking in in a fluster and trying to attach my bag tags. A agent came over and helped me (for some reason I had taken the entire sticky back off ha!) and then he took my bag for me right from the kiosk. I was super impressed"
Pros: "My flight attendants were sooooo friendly. Also really enjoy the complimentary glass of wine!"
Cons: "no music. no wi-fi. nothing to enhance the experience. check out jet blue."
Pros: "Free movies!"
Pros: "The flight was OK except that they ran out of food to sell and apparently you could order ahead of time but at least for us in the back of the plane was nothing left."
Pros: "We had to reschedule our whole trip and last night it was delayed again. We slept at PDX on the 11th and trying the same flights last night we left Portland 3 hours late and slept at SFO. AIRLINE travel sucks. Sue"
Pros: "What did I like about my flight?...Not much! Was not allowed to pick seat assignment during reservations.Called two days before returning for seat assignment...Told must do at airport day of. Arrived at airport 6 hours early day of and was assigned 31F (only32rows) tried to change as I really wanted near front, isle seat... was turned down but guy and wife in line behind me changed thier's from back to row 6.... I endured 31F surrounded by sick coughing, sniffing, snotty nosed, sneezing people and crying children for next 6 hours...I've been back almost a week and just now feeling well enough to venture out...I will never travel Alaska airlines if they won't give me an acceptable seat assignment... Hawaiian Airlines trip there was wonderful!"
Pros: "The in flight entertainment tablet I rented ($10) was really nice. It had some very new movies, fun games and more on it. Most of the flight crew was kind and polite, minus one woman who seemed to hate her job and the airline. I was pleased that the flight wasn't canceled as many others into PDX had been that day due to an ice storm. Felt safe even with turbulence and threat of a slippery landing."
Cons: "One crew member, an older woman, seemed really bitter. She openly expressed frustration with Alaska in front of passengers on multiple occasions and was very rude and brusque with us customers. She made me feel like a nuisance for even just being on the flight. Otherwise the seats were just so small and uncomfortable. It was a long flight to feel smushed and have a sore tailbone from the total lack of padding."
Cons: "17" seats?! Good thing it was only a 90 minute flight."
Pros: "The price was right, so I chose this airline I'd never been on. Let me tell you, it was the finest flying experience I've ever had. I wish they would fly everywhere, because then we'd be done with the brutal shafting Delta and American and even United dishes out on the regular. Comfortable, friendly, accommodating (usb and AC ports on every seatback), and laid-back, it was perfect. I mean, perfect. AND we got there early."
Cons: "I didn't like sitting there and comparing them to all the other airlines I've ever flown with, because Alaska puts everyone else to shame. It was a positively joyous experience."
Cons: "Boarding was more of a free-for-all than other airlines. Everyone was boarded on the plane only 5 minutes after boarding was scheduled to begin."
Pros: "Staff was great"
Cons: "How loud it was inside as was a smaller plane."
Pros: "Crew members, ease of boarding, Alaska App."
Cons: "Plane is small and very noisy. Hard to hear on your own device, or to take a nap etc. Small seats, tight fit - rubbing elbows with the person sitting next to you."
Pros: "It was fine I was able to sleep and it was a fast flight."
Pros: "Nothing in particular."
Cons: "The fact that you cram people into small spaces. It's awful that you treat coach so terribly. Someone needs to design a more comfortable experience."
Pros: "Because delate"
Pros: "Flight attendants took safety seriously: 'Wendy' explained the safety features clearly with easy-to-understand cadence and tone. (The reminder is important especially for infrequent holiday travelers. On many other recent flights, an elementary-school delivery that simply recites the words was harder to understand and too common.) The other attendant kept his actions synchronized with her words. (In contrast, on another flight the attendants clearly had not practiced together, so demonstrations did not match the words, making me worry about how they would communicate and coordinate if there was an emergency.) 'Wendy' memorized passengers' last names in 1st class, so it was always clear when she was speaking to me even when I wasn't looking. She held off serving while I tried to sleep, and kindly asked me several times when she spotted my eyes opening. The spinach salad and the cheesecake (minus the sugar syrup topping) were delicious. I did not use the entertainment. I was happy not to hear the sound from my neighbor watching entertainment on the Alaska Air tablet with earphones."
Cons: "The Alaska Air check-in desk was hard to find from the street after being dropped off by the rental-car van. It was hidden behind the agriculture inspection conveyor and x-ray. Bold Hawaiian Air signs were clear on the back wall to the left, and Delta signs were visible on the right side wall, but the Alaska counter signs on the back wall behind the equipment were not visible. A large Alaska Air sign next to the conveyor was angled the wrong way. After more than five minutes of walking back and forth from the security queue to the conveyor belt, I finally spotted a small (maybe 6inch by 8inch) Alaska Airlines sign on a queuing pole near the sidewalk past the conveyor belt. I guess the problem is the facility does not permit signs hanging from the roof? So a larger sign between two tall queuing poles under the edge of the roof, like a gate, might help. I guess the sign next to the conveyor belt must not confuse people to put their bags on the belt prematurely? It could have large arrows pointing to the right away from the conveyor belt. Maybe it could be curved so it is visible from the main street as well as from the right."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and plane wasn't overbooked, which was nice."
Cons: "The flight was delayed, which was inconvenient!"
Pros: "The great wheel chair services they provided for me both ways made easy and relax for me to travel without any stress. Thank you all for the wonderful services!"

Cons: "The flight was too warm."
Cons: "More communication on the flight delay"

Pros: "Just fine, beverage service was friendly."

Pros: "Great service!"
Cons: "Crew did not make passenger in front of me bring his seat back up for landing."
Cons: "Not much legroom."
Pros: "Newer plane. Friendly crew. Landed safely and on time."
Pros: "Going back home to the US"
Cons: "I had 15 hours layover in Amsterdam so I got me a hotel.one hour after I got to the hotel I got a notification from Kayak app asking me to go get my bag from Schiphol. My bag was supposed to be directly shipped to PDX. I had to leave my hotel back to the airport and spend 2 hours trying to find it only to be told that it was going to PDX. I lost my $170 hotel room, over $70 for taxis and ended up spending the night on the floor at Schipol. I do not think I'll ever use Kayak again. The travel guarantee is a joke too."
Pros: "Economy Comfort, excellent in-flight entertainment (Movies)"
Cons: "Food was rather marginal (really no surprise, it's airplane food), tried unsuccessfully to hook-up to in-flight Wifi (couldn't get it to work throughout the flight)"
Pros: "The cree"
Cons: "The stupid boarding pricesd"
Cons: "The landing was somewhat frightening."
Pros: "It was great. The flight attendants are always helpful to us."
Pros: "Despite the turbulence and delay, this was possibly the best flight I've ever been on. I have never been treated so well by a flight crew before. Also, the attendant at the gate managed to get my wife seated next to me when our seats ended up separated. Great experience!"
Cons: "Turbulence and delay was bad, but the flight crew made up for it."
Pros: "Crew members were very nice and pilot did a great job flying thru turbulence"
Cons: "I don't have any compliants"
Cons: "Seats a bit cramped"
Pros: "The service was good"
Cons: "The flight was very rough on landing"
Pros: "First leg from San Diego was excellent."

Pros: "Wi-FI available (although I didn't use it)"
Cons: "No direct flight in the morning, so had to take two connecting flights, and leave home very early in the morning."
Pros: "The entertainment system"
Cons: "That one flight attendant brushed me off with a wave of her hand... SUPER RUDE!"
Cons: "Seats not very comfortable-very close quartered"
Pros: "Good drinks and movie selection"
Cons: "The fact they wasted two days of my trip with my son travelling from the U.S. to China because they didn't know about transit visa regulations. And so far they offered a 75 dollar voucher for participating merchants. Unacceptable"
Pros: "Comfy seats"
Cons: "No earphones available. I had forgotten mine but crew stated that none had been put on the flight. Lunch was served but no snacks later as is usual on an almost 4 hr flight. I always fly First Class for the extra room and perks of crew service. Crew spent most time in galley chatting. Not a bad flight by any means but I guess I have been spoiled by superior service on all of my other weekly Delta flights."
Pros: "on time"
Pros: "Staff was friendly, and we got there safely"
Cons: "Really wished we had tv's like we had on our flight to SLC. It really helps with those who have anxiety to distract their minds. Wifi is expensive therefore I chose not to use it"
Pros: "Delta flight attendants ultimately removing the passenger."
Cons: "The man that called the mother and her son a "F***** b****"."
Pros: "I have never had a problem with this airlines. This flight was no exception"
Cons: "More space, but I am in economy and that's just life! I expect my hips to hurt after, again my problem not there's, if I wanted more room I would buy first class but I won't for a short trip."
Cons: "small aisles and space in the seats. me and my wife were seated"
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "Need more legroom"
Cons: "Delta allowed us to board knowing of possible weather delays at the destination! Once on board the captain announced that we could not take off due to weather at the destination! Why didn't they let us just sit in the airport until Delta knew one way or another? Been sitting, trapped in the plane, no AC, no announcement from the flight crew. Could be waiting in relative comfort inside the airport!!"
Pros: "The crew was professional and efficient. This includes the ground personnel that had to cope with a grossly overbooked flight. I was upgraded to comfort+ at the gate."
Cons: "Fed up with the .4 oz pretzels. The arrival in LAX was chaotic. We had left on-time and were told that we would arrive approx. 20 minutes early. Ha! First landing attempt had to be aborted, the landing not being cleared by the control tower. Then we cruised, circling over the Ocean, and the lights of the city again. Finally we landed. Taxiing on the tarmac was interrupted many times, and took overall 30 minutes. The pilot kept informing us. I was probably not the only passenger that had and urgent need to reach a bathroom... Of course, Delta should not be blamed"
Pros: "Good experience given that it was a long flight."
Cons: "How about meal service on the 5hr flight from Atlanta to Portland? The food for purchase options left much to be desired."
Cons: "plane had to go back to the gate to lose 1500 pounds. cant they calculate this while loading?"
Pros: "Everything was great from the check in process to the de-planing in Detroit. When we checked in at SLC the agent used my last name, which showed me the extra mile Delta staff will go to make the travel with them professional and curious. The flight left on time and when we arrived in Detroit our bags were already there waiting for us. Couldn't have asked for more!"
Cons: "Nothing at all"
Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See abo e"
Pros: "Pleasant crew. Efficient loading and gate-check."
Cons: "No direction to passengers to put phones on flight mode- i had to request my seat mate to do so. No entertainment. Only mini pretzels served."
Cons: "Seating is too crowded"
Pros: "Clam flight Nice crew"
Cons: "No complaints, completely satisfied!"
Pros: "I liked that I had a vacant seat next to me."
Cons: "Small, narrow seats and way too cramped. Absolutely no leg room or much space to the seat in front. Terrible for a long haul international flight compared to other airlines. No free alcohol on an international flight!"
Pros: "friendly crew and staff"
Cons: "the unsheltered boarding in snowy and icy weather treacherous for those of us who are not so sure footed"
Pros: "Went really smooth enjoyed"
Cons: "Announcements were difficult to hear. ?static"
Cons: "Spent 90 minutes on the plane before it even took off."
Pros: "The food we had to buy was good."
Cons: "We barely made it in time to sprint all the way to the next gate."
Cons: "They took an hour to get our baggage out in Hailey."
Pros: "Flight was great, no issues"
Pros: "The staff of Dekta were welcoming as well as helpful. The flight was professionally run and I enjoyed it."
Cons: "The auxiliary power went down before we took off. However, the flight captain assured passengers that procedures would be followed to assure our safety. We waited on the plane for 10 minutes and then took off. Thanks to staff for following safety procedures."
Cons: "The seats are so squashed in in economy it was really hard to get comfortable. The inflight entertaining on the screens was rubbish. The app didn’t work with the movies. Some of he crew were lovely, and some were just ok."
Pros: "The crew were very nice and polite."
Cons: "No snack options. Only pretzels. Seat cushion very thin."
Cons: "Flight attendants seemed completely unwilling to accommodate any requests outside of their "service time"."
Pros: "Our flight was 20 minutes lite but the flight crew was Great at letting us know what was going on."
Pros: "Crew and employees were all great, could not have gone any better."
Cons: "For a three hour flight, entertainment was lacking. The fact that there are ONLY paid options was kind of a slap in the face. Even just providing some radio stations to listen to would have been acceptable as a free option"
Pros: "Timely departure, comfortable airplane, decent food&drink offerings, my baggage arrived on time despite 2 layovers"
Pros: "The older planes of United Airlines could use some remodeling. The entertainment system with controls in the middle of the arm rest where the elbow rests is such a bad idea, didn't even bother with this crappy unintuitive system. It was annoying and flashy with bright advertisements or something popping up on a night time flight just sooooooo annoying, turning it off was not intuitive and had to ask the flight attendants how to turn it off during their very busy work of handing out packages with five miniature pretzels and drinks to the passengers, was happy to get a whole cab of juice to myself though."
Cons: "Again, seats are too close front to back."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and polite. Service was prompt and excellent"
Cons: "Excessively long layovers. I came home with 3 broken ribs and had to endure a 11 hour layover in Japan and another 6 hour layover in San Francisco."
Pros: "Boarding was orderly, crew was reasonably nice."
Cons: "Comfort, food and entertainment (extra $$) is very mediocre."
Cons: "My flight out of traverse city was cancelled but I rebooked on a different airlines through united to be able to get to my destination in time for an event that day. It was a long process but I made it and really appreciated all the work the agent on the phone did for me. When I arrived at the airport they had my resvervation but no ticket... luckily we worked it out"
Cons: "I wish I could have gotten more beverage (water) during the flight. Very dry in the cabin but all-in-all, it was a pleasant experience."
Cons: "Upon approach we were suddenly deverted to Seattle. I had a few issues. Number one you could not hear the pilot so that made it worse. The lack of communication was horrible. I have been on flights when there has been clarity given a change in plans but this was bad. We sat at the gate for an hour and a half, again no real communication, the fligh attendant t hope was joking when he said there was a half a bottle left for the whole plane...much later we were served water. Announcements were made but no clarity. We were told to collect baggage at number 2. Get a voucher for a hotel. After deplann9ng about 25 of us stood in line at the customer service desk where there were two staff working slowly. Then after an hour they announced we were in the wrong place, couldn't that have been explained earlier? Once we made our way out of the terminal to the ticket count the line was all the way down the hall. still with little info we waited. We landed at the alternate airport at 945, at 130am I had my vouchers, the food not useful until the following day, the hotels were full, no one picked up the phone for the shuttle bus to the hotels. I finally elected to sleep at the airport on a bench. We had actually all been reassigned a flight on our same plane. So I am not sure why we had to wait in line all that time. Our bags were not removed from the plane an irritated baggage claim attendant told me. It was a mess. The flight the next morning was fine, short, without problems for me. united needs to work on its communications. It would have been helpful to have someone out side running the line giving out info. And at customer service they should have been paying attention to their line. Would have been helpful."
Pros: "Excellent as expected."
Pros: "Crew was great even on overnight flight"
Cons: "Horrible delays and reboarding and then none of the crew tried to make anything better. My flight attendant practically threw one of the cheap bags of snacks at me"
Pros: "On time and people nice"
Cons: "Everything. Very good"
Pros: "The crew on this flight was maybe the best crew I've ever had in a flight. Extremely friendly and personable."
Cons: "Wifi and entertainment was not available I this flight"
Pros: "Lmnot full flight"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 90 minutes and I barley make my connection"
Pros: "No problems"
Cons: "It was an enjoyable trip, no complaints whatsoever."
Pros: "Same as above."
Cons: "Same as above."
Pros: "Seats were fairly comfortable"
Cons: "Only one free snack option and I don't like ranch flavor. A bag of popped corn is $4"
Cons: "The seats didnt have a lot or room."
Cons: "Flight was an hour delayed and I was never told the reason.. There was no enough of the beverage I wanted to be given just one can of juice.."
Pros: "The single serving waffle was a welcome change from a small, dry cookie."
Pros: "I like that united airlines. They are normally on time and great service."
Cons: "That my flight was delayed from SLC Utah. I was 1 minutes late. Exactly 1 minute late from when boarding closed. they had already given my seat out... In the end I was late to a very important business meeting and may have lowered my chance of getting a raise. Thank you very much United airlines. I can't blame the crew members or the pilot. But I am very disappointed"
Pros: "As a pilot i don't care about the food, never eat it. I care about safe aviating and that we had all the way down to minimums into New Orleans."
Cons: "Don't much like being treated like cattle, but compared to flying my own aircraft this is practically free and totally safe."
Pros: "Had to de-ice and I think the pilot got lost looking for the pad. This added about twenty minutes to the "flight" before take off. Then in LA there was an issue with the plane at our gate this added another hour of tarmac time. I don't like being stuck in plane on the ground that is not moving any longer than I should have to be. There were some balls dropped on this flight. Makes me want to stick with Delta or Southwest."
Pros: "I upgraded to first class, which made the flight much more comfortable. The crew were helpful and friendly."
Cons: "I avoid flying whenever possible, as it is generally not a pleasant experience. Boarding was a mess."
Pros: "vinyl not cloth seats"
Cons: "The "free" movie service offered did not work on the flight to or from our destination. The seats on United seem smaller than other airlines."
Pros: "See above"
Pros: "Once we finally got a flight, because this one was delayed too, it was nice. The crew were friendly and helpful and made sure I was comfortable. Boarding went quickly and I was happy to get moving."
Cons: "This flight was also delayed one hour."
Pros: "Efficient, & nice crew"
Cons: "Too crowded Most complaints had to do with airport experience. Delays, delays, crowded, too tight with seat placements!"
Pros: "Thank you for using Boeing aircraft! Akong with being an American made aircraft,even the small 737 is so much larger and comfortable than the any Airbus, sure makes your flight more comfortable and user friendly with the necessary leg room and overhead luggage compartment. My girlfriend and I just took a flight to Hawaii using American Airlines, and we were disappointed to get an Airbus every leg of the trip. I am 6'4" and those Airbuses have no comfort side to side or front to back, and I always have to see my chiropractor afterwards. You can't even get small carryons into their tiny overhead luggage compartments. I have flown United Airlines before and remembered that most of your aircraft were Boeing, so I chose this trip with you. Very comfortable flight and I look forward to my return trip. I will continue to Fky United Airlines from now on. And thank you for the new safety instructions video. It catches your eye and keeps you paying attention, and has humor too. Thanks again everyone at United"

Pros: "Loved the baggage options with carry on baggage. So convenient."
Cons: "The seating was tight in economy. Hard to stretch."
Cons: "Not comfy"
Cons: "Flight was delayed over 2 hrs making us get into Portland after 2am. Very inconvenient to us traveling with a 1 year old and a big hassle to the people picking us up. Should have gotten another plane instead of making us wait on the delayed plane."
Pros: "Stewartists only"
Pros: "Friendly flight attendant."
Cons: "Luggage was VERY slow to make it to baggage claim"
Cons: "The flight was late...."
Pros: "Steaming movies directly to my iPad and iPhone for free was a great way to pass the time."

Pros: "I loved the professionalism from everyone. I felt comfortable with United."
Pros: "The airplane itself was very comfortable. The crew was very friendly and helpful. I was very comfortable on this flight."
Cons: "This was my first Frontier flight, and I was very pleasantly surprised. I only discovered the dark side on later flights."
Pros: "I had my own row the whole trip."
Pros: "The flight was fine - it was on schedule and smooth. It's Frontier so there is no entertainment or food."
Cons: "$45 for a carry on? Seats are like folding chairs. They don't even recline. Metal tray is so small it wont even fit an I pad. $3 for a bottle of water? no snacks, beverages and a barely padded metal chair that doesnt even recline?"
Pros: "Delayed. Lost bag. Horrible service. Hidden fees. Will never use Frontier again."
Cons: "50 minutes late with no warning"
Pros: "Great price, picked my seat (extra charge but worth it), friendly and competent crew, on time and not one hassle."
Cons: "Food choices very limited, especially when compared to the adult beverages available. It was a short flight so not a starvation issue but a few more choices would have been nice. Bring your own snack!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours to start. Airline refused to give a reason! Finally it was operations. Then first officer times out, another 2 hour delay and instead of being proactive and having a Captain standing by because he was heading to time out we had another delay. Frontier has terrible gate agents who don't care. My flight that was to arrive at 10:55 PM arrived at 3:30 AM so I lost a day of work, had to cancel a meeting and lost an entire day because of Frontier's operations? Sounds like a poorly run airline who touts being low cost who nickel and dimes me to death. I WILL NEVER come back."
Pros: "Flight was on time, boarding was efficient"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seating, too crowded."
Cons: "No entertainment on the plane at all. Also no food. We had breakfast that day and that was it. There was no time to get some food during the stopover in denver, so we ate nothing until 9 pm that day. Employees were kind of rude too for no reason. They kept advertising their creditcard. Wouldve been enough to say it once during the flight, but instead they kept on talking about it for the whole flight, which was super annoying!"
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "The cost of the carry on luggage was close to the same as the cost of the flight. I do not appreciate that level of surprise extra cost, as it was not highlighted at the time of purchase! When we decided to save $5 per piece of luggage and check our bags, the check in attendant threw our bags onto the conveyor belt haphazardly with little regard for what may have been in them. The seats on the plane did not recline and were very uncomfortable. I am very dissatisfied, and will avoid flying with Frontier Airlines in the future."
Cons: "Arrived well before the flight to check bag which I paid $35 (highest rate for check in bag yet-compared to other airlines). Took over an hour to check bag as there was one person checking bags at DIA. The other employee was assigned to the customers who had paid a premium fee. Many of the customers left the long lines and went to curb side to check their bags. When I arrived at gate, flight was delayed. I got on the plane and into my seat. Unfortunately, I was not paying attention and sat in 8F, not 8E. There was a woman and her daughter who came on late and they gave 8E to the daughter. Moments later a woman, came and asked me to show my boarding pass. I took out my phone but forgot I had switched it to airplane mode as we were due to leave. In a full flight, the woman (Robin), started telling me that I was on the wrong flight and that I was on the later flight. I couldn't bring up my seat assignment because I was frazzled and embarrassed as she insisted I get up and leave with her. I thought we were going out to check my assignment, but when I got out to the gate, I realized that the plane was leaving. Robin and the crew realized they had made a mistake and told me the only thing they could do was get me on the 10 p.m. flight out of Denver. Never have I been treated so poorly. All someone had to do was ask my name which did not happen until I was totally humiliated as I struggled to get off the plane and was out at the gate. I was reimbursed my flight and was given a check and a $15 voucher for dinner which didn't cover my dinner. I took the later flight and arrived home at 0100 a.m. My husband had to come home from the coast (2 hour drive) to take care of our dogs who were waiting for me to come home to feed them and get them out of the heat."
Pros: "The flight left on time and arrived early."
Cons: "I didn't like that I had to pay for a carry-on and a seat assignment. And then to find out when on board, that I had to pay for any snack or beverage. Good thing I had a water in hand. I had flown Frontier many years ago when I received good service. This flight was just transportation....not a service oriented flight to get you to return. Also, we waited for 1/2 hour at baggage claim for our bags to finally appear..."
Pros: "Felt like sardines in a can flying. Didn't k ow ya had to pay for your seats that makes me sad."
Pros: "We arrived early!"
Cons: "The $20 in extra charges for the most uncomfortable seats ever. I was also never made aware of the extra charges for carry on items. At least be up front about it. Made my round trip ticket almost $100 more in fees."
Cons: "Added cost just to get a window seat, carry on bags, and all food. Won't fly them again if I don't have to."
Pros: "The attendants made sure every one was comfortable before the flight took off, after the doors were close the offered open seats to customers that looked a bit crammed. They were very accommodating. I didn't eat any food, but it smelled amazing. I would definitely suggest Frontier to any one flying I know I will be booking with them again."
Cons: "The chairs weren't the most comfortable, luckily it wasn't a long flight. Is a bit much for checked in baggage. I understand charging for extra luggage but the first checked bag should be complimentary."
Pros: "Smooth flight, arrived early, fast boarding pricess."
Cons: "Everything was fine, no foodand only water for free, which was expected since rates are so low. So low score is only due to N/ A not being an option to rank."
Pros: "The crew was pretty friendly - friendlier than the other Frontier crews we had."
Cons: "Delay after delay after delay. Took us TWENTY extra hours to get home. Missed work and caused huge inconvenience to family and friends. Terrible airline, terrible experience."
Pros: "The crew was better than expected."
Cons: "Have to pay to select a seat?? Carry on is $40. Checked is $35. No Skycap. I won't be flying Frontier in the future unless they decide to go to Southwest management school."
Cons: "Might as well take flying school bus and pay tons of money to do so. Cheap experience that's not cheap at all after they chafe charge you for every possible thing. My new least favorite airline. I will never fly them again."
Cons: "I hate being nicked and dime for every possible charge from checked in baggage to carry-on to a bottle of water. Ticket agents were unpleasant."
Cons: "Plane was late"
Pros: "The seating is extremely restrictive. The seats no longer recline. Seating arrangement is a charge item. Carry on bags are a charge item. In flight beverages and food items are charge items. The air in the planes is low quality."
Cons: "The stewards(ess) are bitchy because they are trying to manage very unhappy passengers. They constantly spout warnings to shut up, sit down and do exactly as they say or you will be taken off the airplane in irons by an air marshal. There is no comfort or piece of mind on a Frontier plane. We will NEVER fly Frontier airlines again!"
Cons: "Having to pay for my one carry on....which fits in overhead easily. I was told I had to pay because I also had a small purse...which constitutes two carry on pieces. This is complete Bullshit. My purse is not luggage. Added costs were over $60 to my flight. Ridiculous and completely misleading. Seats don't recline and they're super uncomfortable."
Pros: "Took off on time and even landed early."
Cons: "I paid $55 and $60 for checking 1 suitcase and 1 carry-on in each direction. After a month stay my checked bag was 5.5 lbs overweight. I had to pay an ADDITIONAL $70 for that suitcase. It's airway robbery."
Pros: "You sold me the wrong date 2/17 and I had to buy the RIGHT one 2 days prior to my trip."
Cons: "Your inflexibility to changing flight prior to actual flight/need."
Pros: "The flights didn't cost too much."
Cons: "They charge for anything they can."
Cons: "183$ in seating and luggage fees AFTER the base ticket price...I wasn't made aware of these charges until I went to check in for my flight. No leg room. Seats don't recline. Tray table about the size of an iPhone 6. No entertainment. No snacks. All drinks cost money. Rude staff. Just a disaster of an experience. I'll never fly frontier again."
Pros: "The flight was good"
Cons: "The fact you charge 2.00 for a can of Coke that costs .18 really? i would pay .65 to .75 maybe even 1.00. It should be complimentary cause you charged $45.00 to get my bag on... With the price of oil dropping, you seriously can't expect us to keep paying a premium for your neglect."
Cons: "Bag charges. Should have researched more. Probably never fly them again."
Cons: "The $40 baggage fee is unreal. The crew was very unprofessional. The flight left earlier then scheduled and even though I was there on time I missed it. No one was at the desk. And the phone number for frontier was no longer in use."
Cons: "Five hour delay with no form of compensation. Missed a day of work because of it. Tried to make me and my friend pay $45 each for carry on bags on both legs of the trip. Such a joke."
Cons: "No complimentary drinks.. Everything including your carry on costs extra. Their prices are no cheaper than other airlines. Seats are not padded and don't recline. Worst airline ever."
Cons: "Charged for my Carry-on ($40), Charged for me to pick a seat ($24) I will not fly them again. Oh and I get to pay that coming back to my original location."
Cons: "I only booked with frontier after seeing a fare for over $100 less than my preference of Delta. This is the last time I will make such a mistake, after bag fees, seat selection fees I was more than Delta and much less quality."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "I didn't know I didn't have assigned seating, had to pay additional fees for seats, not just once but for both planes on the same destination. I used to fly every couple of months to Denver and frontier airlines have changed their seats. They're very cheaply made and uncomfortable. Cheap and uncomfortable."
Pros: "Paying for a carry on and no complimentary drinks just water"
Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "Very cheap and hard seats, pay for everything including carry ons, water, coffee and cheap food items. I will think twice about using this airline again."
Cons: "The seats are very uncomfortable."
Cons: "Charged additional fees at every turn. Even a "seat fee" was required to be allowed to get on the plane. So buy a ticket and fly, but until you can lie down in the aisle or stowaway in the toilet, youll be paying for your ticket 3 times or more. $40 "seat fees" $3 bottles of water"
Cons: "Plane was crowded,seat was uncomfotable."
Pros: "Fairly cheap tickets as long as you aren't packing anything but a jacket and don't want anything but water and don't want a seat assignment."
Cons: "The seats are crazy uncomfortable and don't recline. Felt like I was being asked for more money at every turn."
Pros: "the crew was nice and the flight was on time"
Cons: "seats uncomfortable charged extra for a carryon bag charged extra to put carryon bag in overhead compartment charged for a drink no free peanuts/ cookie you get on other airlines. Only had food that was for sale"
Pros: "Boarded on time stayed on schedule. excellent landing by pilot"
Cons: "Stewardess were a distant. Did not like seeing male steward. seats very small crowded space felt ripped off by being charged $40 for carry on luggage & $30 for checked baggage. Not provided a beverage or snack"
Pros: "Flight was on time and the staff was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "We felt Frontier used the old "bait and switch" routine on us. We weren't aware to reserve a seat we had to pay an additional fee. We also were not informed that even one checked bag would cost us extra. Last, the baggage charge from Denver to Portland was $40 for one bag but on the return trip it was $30. Did we get ripped off in Denver??"
Pros: "leg room"
Cons: "thin seats"
Pros: "No frills flying but it was fine. It was completely clear at booking and online check in that it costs for carry on bags."
Pros: "The Cheap ticket price."
Cons: "The scam-like way they make up for that cheap ticket price by charging for everything. I was held hostsge at the gate by a representative checking tickets who said I can't get on the plane until I pay $60 for my carry-on bag. Which on most airlines is free but not on frontier, nothing is free all the way down to charging $2.99 for a can of soda or any drink for that matter, no peanuts pretzels, nothin, charge, charge, $35 to pick your seating assignment. I Will never fly Frontier again, they are on the Frontier of scammery and fraud. Btw I called and got my $60 back after a relentless effort on my part on their customer service phone number."
