Pros: "Boarding was fast and the direct flight was a huge plus!"
Pros: "Every experience with the airline was outstanding. This was the first flight with SunCountry airline. I would use this airline anyday.."
Pros: "The people who handled the wheelchairs in both Minneapolis and Phoenix were top notch. In fact, I'd rate them the highest of all such employees of all the airlines I've ever traveled on!!!"
Cons: "I completely offended by the attitude of one of the flight attendants. As I am disabled, I choose the restroom that is closest to me for my use. I was seated in row 5, just behind First Class. In fact, I tried to upgrade to First Class when I checked in, but it was full. So when the seatbelt sign went off, I went through 1st Class to the restroom by the cockpit. I didn't take my cane. I have neuropathy in my feet and legs up to my hips, and given that I can easily lose my balance, I am much safer on airplanes when I hold onto the seats as I pass by. As it happens, the restroom was occupied and I had to stand in the area at the front of the plane that the flight attendants typically occupy. The snippy attendant saw me standing there and immediately walked in front of me to get her microphone and loudly announced to the entire airplane that NO ONE was allowed to use that restroom except First Class and people who arrived by wheelchair. I arrived by wheelchair. I have some real ethical issues with her behavior. First of all, I was embarrassed by her remarks. Secondly, one bathroom for 12 people and one bathroom for the 100-200 others that were on that flight is unconscionable!!!!!!!!!!!! There are two things that in my humble opinion can never be denied any human being are water under any circumstances and the right to a speedy and safe trip to the bathroom. I was deeply offended by her remarks and by her timing in giving the remarks. I told her that I had arrived by wheelchair, and would be leaving by one as I am disabled. She shined me on. Her behavior was rude and uncalled for. I will never fly Sun Country again, and she is the reason. Additionally, I will not fly with a company who operates under such an unethical agenda. Everyone has the right to a speedy trip to the bathroom. The plane was loaded with elderly "Snow Birds." The elderly are notorious for having special bathroom needs whether or not they are in first class or arrived by wheelchair. I think this airline is blatantly discriminatory."
Pros: "Friendly stewardess and talking about our small incident we had with a daschund dog in the terminal with a handicap passenger."
Cons: "The daschund dog starting to bark on the ground, women picked the dog up and the dog snapped and tore skin off the first finger of the right hand. We did get medical attention and paramedics to assist."
Pros: "Flight attendants made you feel like a customer and not a stranger asking for a favor."
Cons: "Looking forward to wifi and or entertainment options"
Pros: "Very nice humble rews, comfort sits, boarding timely and $"
Pros: "First time on this carrier. After research last Fall, I was confident of the companies history so we were able to save a few $$ using Sun Country on a non-stop direct flight from Phoenix to Minneapolis. Great crew both ways and consistent with their pleasant and positive approach to all passengers. Will use Sun Country again when the time avails itself/ Go USA . Winning the 41st Ryder Cup."
Cons: "Seat was uncomfortable and too close to restrooms."
Pros: "I really liked that those without carry on luggage could board first. That seemed so much better - I could walk on the plane and sit down instead of waiting for 6 other people struggle to put their carry on luggage in the overheads."
Cons: "I was blockaded from access to the bathroom(s). The first class dragon forbade access to anyone but 1st class and the rear bathrooms were blockaded bt workers handing out drinks. Very tough on us 75+ crowd.We don't get much time from urge to crisis."
Cons: "My son and I were a little cramped by the seating."
Cons: "No pillow available..only to first class..I forgot my back support cushion (recent car accident) and asked if there was a pillow I could use."
Pros: "The crew was very courteous and made me feel comfortable. Even the pilot greeted me as I got on the plane. My seat was row 4 right behind 1st class! The plane wasn't completely full, so there was an open seat in the middle of my section. That was really nice! I especially like Sun Country because the airports in both Phoenix and MPLS are smaller than the main terminals!!! I'll be back! :0)"
Cons: "Can't think of anything!"
Cons: "Website was down but it didn't say so you did all the details and then it would say Error. It said to call the 800 number. I did and was hold over an hour with no pick up. Horrible customer service!!!"

Pros: "could at least get a free snack we do on other airlines!"
Pros: "Very smooth flight!"

Pros: "Enough room in seat"
Pros: "They don't nickel and dime you. Very pleasant staff."
Pros: "Least expensive flight I've taken in a long time received a terrific rate for the ticket. The flight was only about 1/2'fiull and it was very comfortable flying with Sun Country."
Cons: "They do not offer USB power or in flight wifi. They offer an entertainment system that appears to be a high capacity tablet with movies, tv and games. The charge for the use of the device is in line with GOGO in flight but you have to use their device and you are not online."
Pros: "Easy to book. Good fare and enjoyable experience."

Pros: "The staff was very pleasant, and efficient getting people boarded and off the plane"
Cons: "The plane was small and outdated. Not very comfortable."
Pros: "I am not a frequent flyer of any type, in fact this was only my 4th flight ever. I really like terminal 2 or Hubert Humphrey terminal out of Minneapolis/St. Paul it is easy to get in and out of or get dropped off. Everything is laid out and well marked so I can figure out where to go when I arrive. Staff was friendly and helpful and understanding that flying and the rules for boarding etc., are something I needed explained to me. I found my gate with no issues, and the announcements of when we would board etc., was clear and easy to understand. Sun County Crew were courteous, and friendly. I wasn't all that hungry and it was not a long flight, but the food choices looked good and reasonably priced. If I fly again I will try to use Sun Country."
Cons: "Just Flying in general, not a fan of rides."
Pros: "Color of the seating, the green upholstery gave it a cheering pop of color Appreciate being able to have a can of pop, with a glass of ice"
Cons: "Hand held movie device, 12 min. Into the movie it froze... Flight attendant was awesome at reimbursing me. Did not enjoy any food, Should have NA option in your survey."
Pros: "Pilot keeping us informed!"
Cons: "It's just too hard to get seats that you want. Couldn't get them when I booked the flight ---- tried 2 1/2 weeks before departure.... Said I couldn't do it on line til check in.. Tried to check in the night before my flight.... All seats assigned.... Had to do it at airport. Shouldn't have to pay $15.00 each to sit next to your spouse. We ended up not sitting together..... Should not be when I tried so many times. Frustrating.... Change that up please! No snacks either!"
Pros: "EVERYTHING !!! From checking in to exiting the plane. Everything was efficient, professional, friendly and clean:)"

Cons: "The seats seam to be have shrunk again."
Pros: "On time flight"
Cons: "First flight delayed for mechanical. Put on another flight. About to take off and ground for two hrs on the tarmac. No refreshments offered on either. The only thing they did was tell us we had the right to de board after sitting in silence for 1.5 hrs. I wish I could say this is not the norm for American Airlines but they are 5/6 in the past two months for being late and having mechanical issues"
Pros: "I’m alive"
Cons: "An hour late. 3 gate changes. Missed connection in Phoenix. Typical AA."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "Better route planning and time management"
Pros: "Attentive crew, generous drinks"
Cons: "I am not crazy about this plane. I had flat beds, but the ones that face each other in an awkwardly intimate way. Also miss the places to store the things I might need/want on the flight. All I had was the little drawer."
Pros: "Amazing Crew"
Pros: "great trip and crew"
Pros: "Would fly again- irritated at how does a flight manage to get overbooked"
Cons: "Flight was 3 seats overbooked, they had to wait until 3 people willingly took a later flight. Like a game of chicken between 100 people."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "the movie selection was quite nice"
Cons: "I have to run to get my connection flight"
Pros: "Flight was delayed. booked another flight through Dallas with a 150 minutes layover there. That almost wasn't enough as we had an unscheduled 1 hour stop in Austi . In Dallas I had to run from one flight to the next. The only reason I made was because the connecting flight eas also delayed. In rhe end we landed at SFO (instead of OAK) over 2 hours later than originally scheduled. To make matters worse, there was a backup on the Dublin grade, making the drive home to Tracy over three hours long. arrived at SAT at 4:30 PM CDT and arrived home in Tracy after 3:30 AM OFT. oh yeah, and my luggage didn't make it at all..."
Pros: "Nothing good to say about AA"
Cons: "AA screwed up reservations by rescheduling flights by 3 hours earlier (done not once but two times) causing 6 hour layover. This plus an additional 2:38 delay on next flight made the journey horrible. Will never book an AA/BA flight again for intrnational travel."
Pros: "Friendly staff and helpful"
Cons: "Did not fly out of Ontario, I was being led to fly out of LAX since there was a delay. Ended up flying out of John Wayne Airport."
Pros: "We missed out connecting flight. We landed at 730am our connecting flight was supposed to leave at 750 it actually left at 744am"
Cons: "Our connecting flight left early"
Cons: "I arrived at the airport and had already checked in and had m boarding passes. For some reason they could not find me when I went to check my bag. After 30 minutes they saw that my seat assignment had been changed and that is why my boarding passes that I had printed at home did not match what their computer showed. I booked this reservation in May and had a seat chosen fairly toward the front. I am 73 years old and the closer to the front I can be helps. When I finally got on the plane to my surprise my seat was the very last seat on the plane across from the restroom. People continued to leave the door open after using the restroom so had to get up and continue to close the door or look at the restroom the whole flight. There was never any explanation as to why they did this. As a result, being lst off the plane, I almost missed my connection as I had to go two terminals over for my connection. At my age I cannot run so I arrived as the last people were getting on the plane. I will never fly American Airlines again."
Pros: "Boarding was easy and pleasant"
Pros: "I feel everyone was courteous and professional in their job. Nothing special happened that was outstanding."
Cons: "What I didn't like was the flight from SAT to PHX arrived 1 hour early and their was no gate to go to. Consequently we sat on the tarmac for minutes! There was no value in arriving early!"
Cons: "Plane was cold, seats old and uncomfortable"
Cons: "The information that was given was awful. Why would AA send a broken plane to ABW?"
Pros: "Nice people to fly with"
Pros: "In spite of adverse situations the counter staff was extremely helpful"
Pros: "Every thing. I am not rating it as excellent only for the 'Maxim' : "There is always scope for Improvement""
Cons: "Nil. No complaints what so ever."
Cons: "Flight was overbooked"
Cons: "Agent at gate said overhead compartments were all full and no more room for any bag. So I had to check in my carry on luggage . To my surprise, there had many open space when I walked in the plane. The worst thing was my brand new suitcase was torn. I told the luggage agent the incident and she said they had no liability what so ever."
Pros: "AA put us in a hotel and gave $12 (per person) food voucher for missed connection due to delay for maintenance."
Cons: "Our luggage was lost for 2.5 hrs in PHX airport, due to mix-up by service rep at customer service. AA attendant at gate at CLT was extremely rude and unprofessional when I accuse Left my boarding passes in seat pocket. Would not summon someone to retrieve it. Made me wait until entire plane was disembarked and cleaned, and made me wait some more after. She was super snarky, made rude comments, and almost made my family miss our connection to EWN. I will never, ever, fly AA again. Worst customer service and tons of issues with maintenance, luggage handling, and delays."
Pros: "loved having a movie to pass the time. Super friendly attendants."
Cons: "Ct for. R"
Pros: "Great crew!"
Cons: "The lack of leg space didn't know it was that bad."
Pros: "Clean, friendly"
Cons: "The first leg of my flight left an hour earlier than scheduled, and I was never notified. Fortunately I found out when I went to "check in" the night before, and was able to arrange for earlier transportation to the airport."
Pros: "The staff tried to help as much as possible."
Cons: "I called American Airlines as ssoon as I book my trip to set up and make sure my small dog could fly with me. They neglected to inform me their partner, jetstar, does not fly animals. My luggage did not arrive with me. Both of my suitcases were mangled and broken. Items in my suitcases were shattered and crushed even though they were well packed and protected. We got stuck on the terminal in MSP and missed our connecting flight. When we finally arrived the systems were down and could not get new flights or hotels. We were told we could not get hotels and had to argue for an hour. Even though it was a maintenance issue. I arrived a day late and had to take extra leave. The plane from LAX to Tokyo was horrific. I booked a window seat, was stuck in the very middle. There was no way to charge outlets devices. The screen did not work. And my new luggage was also damaged with even more items destroyed."
Pros: "The flight between WA D.C. And Phoenix went well. Very nice staff, orderly onboarding"
Cons: "Arrived in Phoenix and hurried to my next gate for the flight to Palm Springs only to discover a delay in the flight. No marguees were updated, no explanation just the plane had not arrived. Soon after we were told of a gate change, the marquee then said the flight would not arrive until 11 pm it is a one hour flight, so we actually arrived at 10 pm."
Cons: "Flight from San Antonio to Dallas had an excellent entertainment selection and entertainment system, despite being an hour flight, but the flight to Madrid was far more lacking."
Pros: "Flight attendants were ok"
Cons: "I left my cellphone with a wallet case with all my important information including military ID in the seat pocket. American Airlines has NO BODY I can talk to to locate my device. I had to fill out a form online and now I am stuck waiting up to 30 days to find it."
Cons: "all flights delayed"
Pros: "I like that the times American Airlines offered to get to my destination."
Cons: "The planes are not so clean and very old... These days it makes me more willing to pay extra to fly on a newer plane."
Pros: "This is the first American flight in the last five I've taken where it was not cancelled or extremely late so that's something to remark upon."
Pros: "Crew was nice including those helping with boarding."
Cons: "Difficult to recline chair. Limited snack options. Landing was a bit rough."
Cons: "This flight was added as they cancelled my flight directly to London then they dropped this flight and had just Phoenix to Lindon! It took many calls, one with over an hour wait, where were told different stories and expectations. I did not receive an actual ticket until the very morning if this flight!! It was very stressful!"
Pros: "Good crew nice flight from san Antonio to phoenix"
Cons: "Seats could have been a little more comfortable for first class."
Pros: "Overall good.."
Cons: "The fact that the flight was delayed and we would have missed our connecting flight to BOS. The next flight out was the following day. We took it upon ourselves to get re-booked on United Airlines. The American travel agent was pleasant but we would have been out of luck if we weren't proactive and frequent travelers trying every flight option available. Finally, after over an hour on the phone we resolved the issue through another carrier."
Cons: "Nearly being bumped off the flight. A tight, uncomfortable seating space."
Pros: "It wasn't as terrible as the 1st leg of the return flight"
Cons: "Bad enough the long part of my trip ove seas had no wifi but then the 4 hour domestic flight did not have it either. I had planned to put my flight time to good use and catch up on work so i did not go back to a mountain of work but that never happened. Also, I've never been to an airport where you exit the boarding doors in the terminal then head down stairs to the tarmac to board a bus that make a complete lap of the terminal going near every AA plane obviously trying to figure out which one they need to drop us off at. If can get this close to losing people I now understand how luggage gets lost so often."
Cons: "Ear headphone jack would not turn down, you could hear the show from three seats away and the flight attendant was rude when I asked her for some different headphone to see if it would help. She acted like I was stupid and said "well did you turn it down?" Of course I tried that. I was very taken back by how she acted."
Pros: "Well the captain got us there in 4 hours instead of 4 hours and 40 minutes."
Cons: "Level of comfort was terrible"
Cons: "Our plane ended up being delayed in Hermosillo for 2+ hours which caused us to miss our connections in Phoenix. The Mexican military gave American a very precise window in which they needed to take off from Hermosillo by, because of planned military maneuvers. The plan arrived on time but we missed our take-off window by 8 minutes. The ground crew and flt. crew showed no sense of urgency in getting the plane prepared to take off, the boarding of the plan etc. We could have easily taken off within the allotted window, except there was no sense of urgency or advance notice to any of the passengers. American in Phoenix made no attempt to accommodate us and we ended up having to buy tickets on Southwest in order to get home. Overall, a terrible experience."
Pros: "The gate attendants were professional and the flight attendants were very good. The flight itself was fine."
Cons: "i had my boarding pass and chose my seat some time ago, in row 4. When I checked in, the AA representative switched my boarding card and I was told that my seat was no longer available. When I got to the gate, I spoke to the gate attendant. There were several people also speaking to them about their seats. I did not have a seat assigned to my boarding pass, so I stood until the entire plane boarded and the gate attendants could sort things out. In the end, I was given a seat at the back of the plane, even though booked my seat some time ago and am a Sapphire member. When I boarded, there was no room for my carry-on luggage. The flight attendant already understood what happened. She immediately took my bag, and found a space at the front of the airplane. This is the second disappointing flight in a row in 2 weeks I have had with AA. I'm not sure if it's just bad luck, or has something to do with the company. I had flown with U.S. Airways for years and never experienced any major issues."
Pros: "4 hours late leaving El Paso causing us to miss flight out of Phx!!! So booked thru LAX and arriving 5 hours later !"
Pros: "Plane was amazing! As always I will wish for more leg rim due to being tall. The food was wonderful and the entertainment was well varied and contained several new releases."
Cons: "Leg room!!!!"
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Staff always amazing."
Cons: "Everything was good overall."
Pros: "Plus seating was wonderful. Very comfortable."
Cons: "Could have used more water."
Pros: "Overall I had a good flight. I do not have any complaints."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "Delta customer service rerouted me to an American Airlines flight that got me in only 4 hours late."
Cons: "If I'd kept my original flight I'd have been over twelve hours late."
Pros: "Nice new interior"
Cons: "Immediately after all passengers were boarded United discovered the plane had to be replaced. We all had to deplane, wait an hour more for a new A320, and reboard. Also irritating that delays are posted at 15 minute intervals and then updated; so you have to keep updating friends & family via WiFi. If it's predicted to be an hour, say so."
Cons: "Unfortunately flight was delayed for 2 hours on top of a 3h42m layover"
Pros: "I was happy to finally receive a drink one the flight started. A waterbottle at the seat and not other service would have been nice. Wifi was not working. The seats were small and cramped. My seat did not stay either up or down...it kept moving around and would not stay adjusted. However the crew was fantastic and our two female pilots were amazing. Captain Amy touched down in Phoenix was one of the smoothest I have ever experienced."
Pros: "I liked the flight was a fast one from San Antonio to Denver and that it wasn’t too crowded."
Cons: "I didn’t like all the excessive noise from the plane and kids."
Cons: "Need to pay for everything... internet, tv, and snack. Long flight when you cant fork out more money for what was free with canadian airline"
Pros: "No issues and it was on time"
Cons: "Not applicable"
Pros: "Mas o menos"
Cons: "En el manejo de mi maleta me rompierón una de las ruedas de la maleta."
Pros: "I didn't get dragged of a flight due to overbooking. So that is always a positive."
Cons: "United needs to add more entertainment options to all of their flights. Virgin, JetBlue have done this. Why can't United? You have record profits, invest it in inflight experience."
Pros: "Boarding and landing ahead of schedule"
Pros: "Zero leg room! That actually was surprising as most other airlines have a lot more legroom. In flight entertainment was also lacking. Doesn't make sense to pay $7.99 for a 2.5hr flight. A lot of other airlines offer some sort of complimentary in flight entertainment. Also the luggage didn't start coming out for at least 30 mins of waiting at baggage claim. Not the worst experience I've had flying but far from being a good experience. It probably isn't worth flying united unless it's 1st class. But even they had to wait 30+mins for luggage!"
Cons: "Very cold"
Pros: "United got me from point A to point B"
Cons: "Crew was rude, not just to me, but to other patrons. Flight was packed going and the man scanning boarding passes spoke to those of us asking simple questions as if we were stupid and defiant. Was he a prison guard in his previous job? On the way to Newark, I had an aisle seat. One of the stewardesses blazed by me with a cart ramming it into my shoulder without so much as a, "sorry." I'm not a big woman but maybe as I dozed off I leaned over a bit...There is no way she didn't feel her cart hit me. Rudeness, it seems is a part of the culture at United because the flight attendants coming back squeezed past the long line for the bathroom without saying, "excuse me." They did however, say, "I need to get by," and one of them brushed by the gentlemen sitting next to me and bumped his laptop and coffee. Overall it seems that the crew working these particular United flights have forgotten that we pay hard earned money to fly. Some of us are going on vacation, to see loved ones, and some are flying to deal with unpleasant circumstances. The staff may fly several times a day, but most passengers do not. There's a lot of prep and anxiety, that goes into taking a flight and a surly flight crew multiplies that anxiety. No one wants to fly with a crew that hates their job."
Pros: "Crew took special care of my guitar -- much appreciated."
Cons: "Small plane. Kept bumping my head when I got up."
Pros: "San Antonio flight to Denver delayed too long where could not make connection in Denver to Toronto. Had to make other flight arrangements."
Pros: "Staff excellent"
Cons: "Everything else, space restrictive"
Pros: "Flight was early!"
Pros: "Great crew. Weather delays, but my check bagged made it even with a tight connection at O'Hare. Nice new plane (EMB 175) with wi-fi and streaming movies and TV."
Cons: "Snacks weren't that great (Zesty Ranch Mix). Some trash in my seat was not cleared out from the previous flight."
Pros: ".The attendant was caring and efficient."
Cons: "The boarding process seems to be a cluster of misguided sheep. The aircraft is uncomfortable even for us thinner patrons."
Pros: "I had an empty seat next to me and was able to have some more comfort on the 5 hour flight"
Cons: "The flight was delayed twice, very frustrating as we were already arriving at midnight."
Pros: "Was impressed w the new plane"
Cons: "Overhead storage a little small"
Pros: "On time, clean newer plane"
Cons: "No entertainment options, were promised free wifi to watch superbowl at the gate only to be told later there were ZERO options for entertainment, no tv, movie or wifi let alone free."
Pros: "That's it was fast and organized"
Pros: "I liked the coffee."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by at least 45 minutes, making me miss my connecting flight. After that I had to wait 7 hours for the next available flight. Also the connecting flight was all the way on the other side of the airport. No one at the airport would help with directions to the next boarding area."
Cons: "Delayed departure, changed gate."
Pros: "Flight was delayed due to malfunctions and then cancelled and we had to board another plane and wait two hours the arrival time in the destination to Phoenix was 3 hours later than anticipated"
Pros: "As I had stated in the first part of the survey the crew members were again very friendly & helpful"
Cons: "I was surprised at how little space there was for a taller person & again the price's for the food & beverages I thought was very pricey for the average person."
Pros: "-Flight Departed On Time From Newark To Phoenix Sunday 1/3/2016. -Flight Arrived 30 Minutes Early In Phoenix AZ. -United A.L. Fight Staff Is 1st Rate!"
Cons: "-United Airlines Check In Procedure @ Terminal C Newark International, Bag Drop Off & Colridinated TSA Check In System Was OverCrowded, Seemed Un-Organized, And Inefficient! -United Airlines Would Be Better Served To Assign Two Ajirline Agents To Assisit United Passengers With Bag Drop Offs & Flight/Seat Assignmnets. -Also The Fact That United A.L. Charges $25.00 Additional For Each Bag Is Ridiculous! Just Build The Cost Into Each Ticket Peice. Southwest Airlines Is Ahead Of The Curve On This! That's One Reason Why Southwest Is So Successful'"
Pros: "Excellent and friendly flight attendants"
Cons: "Being crammed on the tiniest playing on earth with super rude flight attendants. And the lady next to me was so big I had a half a seat."
Pros: "I got there on time"
Cons: "Why not have people board the plane based on sat number? Why this cattle call and stand in line like you're not going to get a seat? Everyone fighting for line position so they can get a place in the overhead bins? Stupid."
Pros: "No turbulence smooth flight. Friendly pleasant pilot. Quickly landed parked and unloaded passengers."
Cons: "Longest security line I've ever seen. I almost missed my flight though I was 3 hours early. Weird set up at departures. At gate warned flight overbookedso we were all stressed we may not even get seat though mine was booked months in advance. I was in zone 4 and they only allowed zones 1-3 to stow carry on items that we had to already lug around the airport for hours. I was forced to check my regulation sized bag in the passageway to the plane as well as everyone else in my zone. Economy seat especially tiny and cramped. Unpleasant flight attendents."
Cons: "4 hour delay because of scheduling"
Pros: "The crew and pilot was very courteous."
Cons: "The flight was delayed three times. It was two hours behind schedule. Then there was a delay in boarding, no entertainment on board unless you buy wifi or previously downloaded the united app to watch selected shows on your mobile device! Appalling to say the least! Whatever happened to the days when you get on an airplane and food and entertainment was a part of your ticket price! Another thing that bothered me was the fact that I had to pay $25 for my suitcase! Really United! Am I not allowed one piece of luggage? I don't like carry my bags around with me so now I have to pay to check it! Shouldn't that be the other way around! Charge for carry on luggage, it's such a hassle and also slows down boarding time, cases congestion in the hallway with everyone reaching for their luggage in the overhead bins! I can keep going, but what good is it gonna do. United airlines suck!"
Pros: "The entertainment is flight dependant. One flight had a personal tv monitor which is cool but you have to pay to watch it. The other had a thing where I could use my device and they had a decent selection but for some reason I kept being disconnected, the problem could have been my device but since I have never had that issue with the device before I blame united."
Pros: "Amazing! Informative pilot, with fun geograpgical facts along the way. SMOOTHEST LANDING I HAVE WVER HAD!! Friendly staff. Flight was great."
Cons: "Planes seats are small, especially fitting 3 people in one row."
Pros: "It took 15 hours to get home"
Cons: "that it took forever"
Pros: "Everything went smoothly, times were great!"
Cons: "Crew a little snippy.."
Pros: "The movie onboard the 737-800 with the little snack box."
Cons: "There was continued delays until eventually my original flight was just cancelled from us, and we got a new flight... Although it upgraded us from the smaller CRJ700 to the 738. Had to lay down and sleep at the gate. Also... If you're boarding military as first privileged, why not just check our CAC (military IDs) because most of the branches are under too high of a security threat right now to wear uniforms while boarding. We have to have them on us at all times so why not?"
Pros: "The lady at check in was nice."
Cons: "Nobody else was."
Pros: "Everything is great!"
Cons: "Was extremely hot on the plane. Made for an incredibly uncomfortable hour and a half flight. Many other passengers complained as well about the heat on the plane but it seemed that no one did anything throughout the flight to fix the problem."
Cons: "No snacks"
Pros: "All of my flight attendants on both flights were extremely attentive and awesome"
Cons: "Little more leeway on the entertainment would be nice"
Pros: "Do people write here for frontier?"
Cons: "Sat on the tarmac for over 3 hours. A fight broke loose and we had to return to the terminal and then back to the tarmac for more sitting. The crew finally figured out how uncomfortable and frustrated people were getting 2.5 hours to sitting with no air on the tarmac. They relieved their customers suffering then with complimentary water! Now that’s service. Frontier is one of the most base airlines out there. I’m entirely frustrated that they are one of the only airlines that service our podunk airport."
Pros: "Good flight, love frontier"
Pros: "The flight attendants were very nice and comforting, as this was my first time ever flying and I was terrified."
Cons: "The boarding staff were rude! There was absolutely no form of entertainment. The seats were uncomfortable online said they recline for comfort however I couldn't find anywhere to get them to recline."
Pros: "Easy check-in with app. Boarding by zone was smooth. The best part is that they send emails with with great deals, so the price was amazing!"
Cons: "There was no entertainment offered. No complimentary food/drinks."
Pros: "The cost first and foremost and the smooth ride."
Cons: "Of course the seats not comfortable thats about it I normally just take a nap dont need anything else."
Cons: "EVERYTHING is an add on!!! Ticket price might be cheaper when you price check ....but by time you add on all the add ons your ticket price is NOT the best price. Won't fly Frontier again."
Pros: "If you like extra fees for EVERTYHING, This is the airline for you"
Pros: "The safety announcement just before take off was a refreshing & original presentation done by the very cheerful flight attendant, Brittany."
Cons: "Flight delayed To much extra charges (seat, carry on, etc)"
Pros: "Great take off and landing. Very comfortable seats."
Cons: "That no snacks or beverages were provided for free"
Pros: "Clean roomy planes. Professional helpful polite flight attendants. Smooth ride. Easy on and off. Comfortable seats. Ontime!"
Cons: "Only water offered complimentary. Charging for a carryon bag. charging for an early seat selection."
Pros: "That they waited for a plane to get in and take the passengers who were already booked. Between the holidays and bad weather, it was the right thing to do."
Pros: "I liked the convience of be able to relax and eat while waiting to aboard the plane!"
Cons: "I didn't like that all the seats were taken in the waiting area"
Pros: "Was late but the time was made up in the flight. Was quick and fine."
Pros: "absolutely nothing."
Cons: "cheap seats, dirty plane, garbage in the front pockets. Nickle and dime you to death on everything!"
Pros: "Gate convenient to security...ground crew and flight crew very professional. Smooth take-off and landing."
Cons: "Atlanta airport shut down early. Struggled with long hikes to baggage claim and car...no assistance with heavy personal item."
Pros: "N/A for food or entertainment"
Cons: "Spend the extra money & book with another airline! Staff was rude & contradictory on policies. Was charge for checkin baggage for a skateboard!?! Ridiculous. There was no sleeping in these uncomfortable seats. Flight late. And was an hour wait for luggage."
Pros: "Boarding seemed to move really quick and seats were comfortable and seemed roomy."
Cons: "Flight was an hour late leaving. Check in at ticket counter was beyond packed, the line wrapped around."
Pros: "Took another airline, United"
Cons: "Cancelled flight 2 hours before scheduled take off and just handed out a paper with instructions and a phone number to call. Should have rescheduled with another airline because it was your fault (mechanical). Had to pay 200 more with an another airline and had to leave the following day which created issues."
Pros: "Flight was short"
Cons: "I was not informed that I would be forced to pay for a carry-on, which was more expensive than checking my bag. I checked it, which then forced me to have an additional 30 minute wait at baggage claim. Horrible experience especially due to the splitting headache from the child who was screaming louder than I ever thought humanly possible (that obviously wasn't the airline's fault though)."
Pros: "polite and friendly crew"
Cons: "Extra costs for seats, soda/drinks (not water) and carry on luggage on one flight from SFO to PHX I ordered a water, but it never came Same flight SFO to PHX was delayed 2 hours for unknown reason Seats were firm and trays were tiny"
Cons: "not able to take the carry on into the plane and paying 40$ to check it in."
Cons: "Paying for my seat - paying for my coffee - paying for my luggage - not the bargain I thought it was - I could have easily taken another airline with more convenient departure and arrival spots and SAVED money!"
Cons: "The baggage fees are ridiculous. Your bags should never cost more than you (the customer). You try and check in online and they want to charge you more to pick a seat. The seats are tight. The tray table is the same size as my cell phone. (The smallest I have ever seen). Airtravel has reached an all time low with Frontier. I was glad my return flight was on SWA. SWA was cheaper fare, has better seats and a better table, and no baggage fee."
Pros: "Great staff. They were always smiling and very helpful."
Cons: "Tight seating on Frontier. The tray table is half the size as normal, so not even worth using."
Cons: "There was an additional charge for everything! In total, my seat and bag cost more than the ticket. They were charging 2.99 for club soda."
Pros: "All good."
Pros: "Very efficient boarding process Comfortable seast. crew was friendly. Unfortunately, we had to sit in the plane for an hour waiting for it to be de-iced. I don't know whether front tier could have done anything to avoid that, but they did make up almost all the time and we landed hardly late."
Cons: "More announcements as to why we were so delayed we are sitting on the plane"
Pros: "Everything was good, no complaints"
Pros: "Flight was great, and t was on time! No complaints there!"
Cons: "Airfare was reasonable for a last minute flight. However we had to pay for seats, and carry on. So my reasonable airfare became expensive. Also, I wanted a bottle of water that was going to cost me. I never had to pay for water before on a flight!"
Cons: "The fare as advertised was misleading. I did not realize until after the flight was booked that I would have to pay an additional fee to select ANY seat. I would have much preferred that the basic seat price be included in the fare. While I anticipate baggage fees at this point, I was taken aback that carry-ons were more than checked luggage. As for the additional fee for a soda...is that really necessary? Not planning to fly Frontier in the future."
Pros: "The only thing I liked was getting to and from my destination safely."
Cons: "I didn't like getting delayed for over 2 hours. Especially when the frontier app said the flight was on time. Then I show up to the airport and find out the flight is delayed over two hours. Then when we finally get to board, we get taken off the plane for more of a delay!..almost 3 hrs in delays is horrible. Not to mention the hidden fees of a carry on?? Are you kidding me? I hope I never have to fly frontier again!"
Pros: "Good price of tickets"
Cons: "Had a 6 hour delay for non weather related items. The only saving grace was they provided meal voucher and 100.00 voucher for future flight. Basically lost a day of vacation due to delay however."
Pros: "Landings were very smooth."
Cons: "1. Charged $40 for carry-on (each way) 2. Charged $2 for tea. 3. Charged $20 to choose my seat (each way). 4. Flight was 90 minutes late (on a 2 hour flight), no explanation given. 5. Flight delayed another hour due to mechanical problems, no compensation offered, tea still $2."
Pros: "Crew was pleasant"
Cons: "By now, the thinly cushioned seats hurt"
Pros: "Clean cabin"
Cons: "Long layover in Denver was 2 1/2 hours. It just made for a very long day."
Pros: "Great leg room, clean, on time and great staff"
Cons: "Everything was great."
Pros: "The people who work for this airline were very nice."
Cons: "The chairs do not move. Everything you want or need is extra. I am very displeased with this company, I use to fly with them all the time and was excited to have booked with them again sadly their new Airbus design is nothing more than a way for them to earn an extra buck and the discomfort of their passengers."
Pros: "Hard to say."
Cons: "Hidden costs- you don't allow a carry-on & you force couples to spend more $ to sit together. This whole thing seemed like a scam."
Cons: "In San Francisco we were not charged for our carry-on luggage, so we did not purchase the outrageous $40 fee prior to our Phoenix departure. We were stopped at the gate and told we had to pay for our carry-on luggage and because we didn't pay the fee in advance we were charged $60 for our carry-on. Person at the gate said "I can't help what they do or don't do in San Francisco. Get it together Frontier. We will NEVER fly Frontier again!"
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Charged for everything, including bringing 1 carry on. Nickel and dime at every corner, will never fly again unless I do not have any other options"
Cons: "The customer service from Frontier was atrocious! Avoid at All Cost!"
Cons: "Angry staff, uncomfortable seating, and the poor scheduling updates."
Pros: "The crew was as helpful as possible, very kind and clearly as frustrated with the situation as we were, and did their best to make sure the rest of our flight was comfortable."
Cons: "My flight was delayed for three hours. We were loaded on to the plane, then told it would be another hour, got off the plane, got back on, and it was still another 20 minutes until we started moving. It was tiring, frustrating, and caused a lot of issues with my ride in Phoenix. I do understand, however, that many of the issues were unavoidable, such as mechanical problems and missing mechanics, but it was frustrating nevertheless."
Cons: "I had a pretty unpleasant experience with Frontier on 12/21/15. Rain in San Francisco caused flight delays. Go figure. Frontier kept us waiting for six hours then cancelled the flight. They were rude; they didn't help their customers, including families with kids, get on other airlines; said they would try to getpeople out of SFO in the next couple days! When I realized I would not get to the wedding I was trying to attend, they siad they wouldn't refund my money' When I insistedon a refund they then said there would be a $19.99 cancellation fee. Eventually, they agreed on a refund. Pretty poor way to run a business. On the other hand, when I needed to cancel my Enterprise car rental, I was able to do it in less than two minutes over the phone - no hassle."
Pros: "The crew was fine."
Cons: "It is incredibly dishonest to not include the 40$ fee to carry on any bag, and 13-20$ fee to choose a seat, bringing up a 60$ per flight leg additional cost. That means roundtrip tickets can easily be 100$ more expensive than listed, making other, more reputable airlines actually cheaper. Not to mention they do not take electronic tickets like every other airline, and when the flight was delayed, I went to have my ticket printed and no one was staffing the desk and no automated kiosks were available. I managed to flag someone down and they wanted to refuse to print me one because "my flight was listed as earlier" despite me being emailed by them that the flight was delayed. I eventually got to my destination, but I will never book a flight with them again. Let's not even mention charging for water, the plastic seats on the plane, etc. Terrible airline."
Pros: "Love the new seats!"
Cons: "Terrible delay and almost no space for my legs--and I'm not tall."
Pros: "I got where I wanted to go for a reasonable price."
Cons: "I did not calculate for the extra fee for a carry-on. I'm always disappointed when I don't get a complementary beverage and snack. Sad but worth the savings."
Pros: "Nothing... Charging for baggage overshadowed everything I canceled the return and Booked on southwest. This is an dishonest, tricky, unethical company."
Pros: "Very efficient and friendly crew."
Cons: "Flight delayed."
