Pros: "Staff were all polite"

Cons: "Sandwiched between 2 big guys 1 of which should be made to buy 2 seats!!!!!!!"
Pros: "Smiley flight attendants"
Cons: "the passenger next to me was sick and shortly after takeoff projectile vomited in the seat. The flight attendant did not seem to think that it was a big deal and took his time attending to the sick passenger and relocating me."
Pros: "So apparently I was told I was 1 min too late and the computer would not let them print a backache check. Further they were tellin me I couldn't get in my flight and have my luggage go later, but I understand because of security reasons. Finally it was 10 min til my flight left, I asked how about if I walk my bags through security check point; have TSA examine them and then they get placed in the plane like oversized carry ons normally do? Ding I struck a light bulb and they said yea why not. After a few phone calls later I was walking with my bags through TSA. It took me to think this up for Delta. A minute too late was the original response from the first agent. 1 minute! Not 10 not 5 she said the computer just got locked out. I was going to miss my flight for 1 min time restraint. The first agent didn't care and just blew me away. Thankfully the next agent tried. I had to throw away all my toiletries because TSA wouldn't let them through."
Cons: "The fact that I had to throw away all my toiletries and do the thinking for the agent. Although out of two he was the most understanding and the most helpful."
Cons: "Flight was an hour delayed. Over booked by 11 people. Staff was cold and rude with no apologies. Turbulence the entire flight. They did the beverage service after two hours of flying. Worst Delta flight to date."
Pros: "We were given snacks and sandwiches for the delay."
Cons: "Paid for an upgrade but the seat was not what I had asked for. The agent said I would get a refund but I was not clear on how that works. Our plane experienced a mechanical issue. We were told after we boarded. Had to wait 1 1/2 hours in a stuffy hot plane. The bathrooms were very dirty and stinky. The bathroom door did not close properly. We finally deplaned and waited for a new plane. Got to Kona at 2:00am. The air temp was warm the entire flight. Had to endure a grumpy crew. Not the best flying experience. I know you can do better. Maybe look at how Hawaiian airlines does it and you might get some inspiration on how to improve."
Cons: "On the run way for 1 hour in line to take off"
Pros: "I like the service"
Cons: "The plane landed with very Chwica I of aviation lovers"
Pros: "They provided a lot of entertainment options. They also kept the lights dimmed so it was easier to relax."

Pros: "Early arrival"
Cons: "VHS antiquated system"
Pros: "The staff was very friendly and made me feel at ease."
Cons: "there was a 30 minute delay in boarding from San Diego because of the lightening. I know that you cannot control the weather, i do like the fact that the flight crew kept us informed the whole time."
Pros: "Easy boarding."
Cons: "I flew first on delta to Miami. Short trip, but was very disappointed in today's service. Instead of the normal solid good flight crew, I found a surly crew who congregated in the galley on this short flight and sat around eating in lieu of working the flight. Very disappointing."
Cons: "The seats were extreamely uncomfortable for a flight of this length. There was no entertainment."
Pros: "Having a direct flight was good. Staff were excellent"
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable. I gave them my global entry number at check-in but they said they often didn’t have access to TSA pre-check. Had never experienced this with an airline"
Pros: "Brand new seats"
Cons: "Check in desk was farthest possible desk in airport"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed about an hour and 25 min. Also my tray was broke. Sun country should think about adding wifi like delta No snacks provided."
Cons: "No Wifi"
Pros: "Nice EZ flight."
Pros: "Flight took off and landed on time. There was a beverage service."
Cons: "Ticket counter was understaffed and staff that were there were slow. Strangely, no kiosk at which to print boarding passes so some people were in line just to print a boarding pass, which made the wait even longer."
Pros: "My daughter and I got a real kick out of the information sheet for what to do in an emergency."
Pros: "voucher for hotel"
Cons: "Sun Country flight was struck by lighting and was diverted. sun country was not helpful and was confused about theire own policies anddid not offer soIutions. This was a familiy get together I had to purchase a flight from delta that left the same time and was able to make the flight, but was rejected by Iceland Air because they had rebook me for the Sunday Flight without communication. I am disappointed in Sun Country as they did not relay the information that I purchase the flight from Delta that lands that same time. I am disappointed that I was not texted with any update as my email and phone number. I am sad because this was a day I lost wiith my family that I have not seen for years. This is time lost that cannot be returned."
Pros: "They eventually got me home. No snack, no fluff, but they did get me home."
Pros: "Sun Country helped make the flight for me and my grandma who needa mobility assistance a breeze! Great service, smooth everything!"
Pros: "Employees were courteous."
Cons: "Difficult to book seats because computer was malfunctioning; flight was one hour late, so we arrived at about midnight. Baggage was late coming off plane."
Cons: "The ticketing agents don't show up until two hours before the flight, so you can't check luggage or go anywhere to get food before that. The area to wait only has chairs -- no outlets for plugging in devices or anything else. When the agents show up, there is a mad dash to get in line and the processing takes even longer. If they are going to leave the desk unmanned, there should be a number system."
Pros: "Speedy check in and being a retired US Marine, I liked that we were given recognition and boarding preference."
Cons: "I was traveling alone and overall experience for 3hr 20min domestic flight... no issues!"

Pros: "Good fare, on time, courteous crew."
Pros: "Gave a heads up about delay."
Cons: "Delayed 40min..."
Pros: "I liked that it was a direct flight and you could pay just a little extra and sit where you wanted. Because the ticket was so cheap to start with, I was able to do this. I paid extra for an exit row and it was worth it! Plus not at all crowded, unlike most of the flights I've been on recently."
Cons: "The seats are very close together!!! They don't provide any snacks, but if you know this going in, you can be prepared."
Cons: "The flight was delayed due to "paperwork not being properly filled out." No one from the flight crew could explain what was happening and this delay almost cost me to miss my next flight. Other than that the seats are small in the planes and seem to be out of the 1990s with no added perks. JetBlue rules."
Cons: "No free food"
Pros: "Good timing of the flight both to and from San Diego. ."
Pros: "I liked the boarding process"
Cons: "Would be nice if they had wifi."

Pros: "Most things."
Cons: "No wifi."
Pros: "I was impressed with the low fare for my round trip to and from SanDiego from Washington DC."
Cons: "The service on my returning flight was horrible. I was forced to wait to use the bathroom because they closed down the bathroom in the front of the plane for 1st class only. Now normally I wouldn't be upset with that but after about an hour of waiting for the snack cart to go by ( i was in seat 5, the snack cart was probably near 20-21 in the back) I kindly asked the flight attendant if I would be able to use the front bathroom, she responded with " you're gonna have to hold it, the flight attendant in the front won't let you in that bathroom, as its ONLY for 1st class passengers. If that wasn't enough, I also had to suffer while my seat continued to be kicked for the entire flight (3hr30min) by the person behind me. I WILL NOT BE FLYING WITH THIS AIRLINE AGAIN. HORRIBLE SERVICE HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE."
Pros: "Punctual flight; pleasant staff at check-in"
Cons: "No snacks. Inconscionably tortuous leg-room situation for anyone of normal stature."
Pros: "Quick and easy boarding."
Cons: "The size of the seating area. I'm a big guy and don't have much room on the plane."
Pros: "The price was great. But there were no snacks and the plane wa really cold and the did not offer any blankets. You would have had to pay $5.00"
Pros: "Price Seat Comfort Hub Airport Staff Attitude"
Cons: "Always a layover in MSP. Charges for food and entertainment."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and the flight from take off to landing was smooth."
Cons: "I didn't pay attention to where my seat was and ended up in the row in front of the emergency exit row and due to this my seat couldn't recline."

Pros: "Great experience. Can't wait to use sun country again"

Pros: "Great flight crew. Friendly and helpful. Made for a more comfortable time to travel."
Pros: "Crew was attentive and friendly."
Cons: "Hamburger was lack luster."
Cons: "They board early!"
Pros: "When I was checking in I didn't have a seat assigned for my return flight. The check-in agent was nice to offer me the exit row seat. I like the extra legroom for the rows of seats. Delta has gotten smaller. The flight left and arrived on time. I would definitely consider flying Sun Country more often. It was also a cheaper flight than what I was finding. Great experience."
Cons: "You don't get a snack. Also, on the return flight, the stewardess was serving the 1st class passengers while people were trying to board. It was very hectic."
Pros: "Flight was comfortable and well done. Plane was clean."
Cons: "The boarding process was chaotic. It started late and the gate agents (one in particular) seemed grumpy and frustrated. I have seen before that SunCounty boards First Class before families will strollers/infants. However, this was a flight to Florida so full of small kids. It would speed up boarding to get those people into the plane to set up car seats, small kids etc. Also, the boarding was hectic enough that the gate agent forgot to board small children, they did pre-boarding, first, exit row, then started with rear seats. There was confusion and all the families rushed the gate. could have been managed much better."
Pros: "The comfort of preferred seating, flight attendent was really nice"
Cons: "No free snacks"
Pros: "Easy, no hassles, good price- Mpls. Airport is a nightmare, though. In terms of changing terminals"
Cons: "Nothing really- no meal service but not an issue- rather bad cup of coffee"
Pros: "No problems. very pleasant flight with good crew. I enjoy SC but wish they flew to more places."
Cons: "no one was there to check me in at san diego airport. I had to wait 4 3 hours for someone. The planes air conditioner didn't work. the sat in the middle and both people used both armrests. one passenger had is foot under the seat in front of me on my side of the seat"
Cons: "Damaged one baggage, and delayed arrival of other baggage for 2 days that forced me to cancel a following trip."
Pros: "Crew on board are great."
Cons: "American keeps canceling and changing schedules. They cancelled flight section and took it out of my itinerary. Then took over 3 calls and 2 hours on hold to fix."
Cons: "I find seats a bit narrow"
Cons: "delayed/not on time"
Pros: "The flight itself was uneventful, which is what you want from a flight. Once the connection was made the next day, the flight segment went perfectly."
Cons: "Flight was over 2 hours late leaving Lima, so many people missed connections in Miami, NOBODY from LATAM was at the gate to assist with how to make new connections or how to get local accommodations for the night. This was a customer service fail. American is no better. They rescheduled the flight at no cost, but then sent you back to LATAM for help with the overnight. If we buy tickets from your website and you own the process, you should be more helpful when there are problems. The back-and-forth was frustrating. Lima airport takes a long time to go through all the checkpoints. Two hours does not give enough time. There are at least four long lines that have to be endured. This process could use some streamlining."
Pros: "Comfort on board, entertainment system"
Cons: "Older plane than on the way to Paris, did not like so much the food (except main course)"
Pros: "The crew member was great."
Cons: "3 boarding doors less than 50 feet apart with departures leaving within 15 min of each other created a difficult to penetrate gaggle."
Pros: "Niçoise salad was great. Had plenty of room in priority with pillow/blanket/headphones etc provided"
Pros: "Not using kayak"
Cons: "Kayak booked me the worst itinerary in the history of air travel!"
Pros: "Perfect from start to finish"
Pros: "I had to buy new clothes after lost bag and since bag had been lost twice during my trip, I was reluctant to check the bag. It was of size to cram into my carry on so I did that, but American staff demonstrated concern, had a sense of humor and helped me get a comfortable seat to sort of take some of the sting away. All that was great of them I was aware of being in an upgraded seat. No complaints, but it stung a little because I was deeply aware of the reinforcement of class. The small, extra comforts were wonderful and I wish everyone had them while risking their lives together over the ocean - especially the extra room At times, on the way over I felt a claustrophobic panic. But to stay positive, they were kiind, sympathetic, funny, sweet. I appreciate them."
Cons: "The original booked flight was about 12 hours before the rebooked flight. We got up at about 2:00 am to leave for the airport at 3:30 am for a 6:30 am flight. We were all packed and booked our ride and shuttinlpg down the computer at the last minute when we noticed an mail after midnight telling us the flight was cancelled. We called and were told there was nothing they could do, due to connections and this was entirely their fault. Approximately 12 hours later we took a “red eye” thus arriving a day late for our hotel and car reservations. We were charged baggage fees and not sure if our priority boarding will be refunded."
Pros: "The flights didn't have any delays"
Cons: "Seat wasn't comfortable."
Cons: "3 hours delay, NOT entertainment at all, this is ridiculous! The dinner was regular, but breakfast was terrible."
Pros: "On time. Was able to sleep through much of what was likely an annoying flight because there was no personal entertainment--the tiny screens overhead would have been impossible to see and they were showing a movie that was lame. It seemed anachronistic."
Cons: "At the Lima gate they made each passenger open their carryon and submit to a secondary inspection to confiscate all water we bought past security. No warning was given about this. I had paid airport prices for water to bring onto the plane and then had to surrender it at the gate. Of course in economy class they will not give you water or attention until you are at cruising altitude. More than one flight attendant did not smile and one was actually rude in spite of my attempts to be kind and smile. Except for one friendly person at check-in kiosk, bad service overall. They do not have personal entertainment systems, and it was like going back in time with the tiny screens you cannot see, playing a movie you either watch it or not."
Cons: "My flight from SFO to Miami was delayed so I missed my connection to Rio and now I’m NYC on my birthday instead of my final destination. The flight status was changed 7 times. And AA said they would get my bag off but they did not and now I have to wait at JFK and hope it got rerouted here. And if it didn’t to hope it can on another flight before I hopefully actually get on a flight for Rio. Nobody has comped me for losing a day in Rio and for my hotel room. And this has been the worst flight exeperience or my life which unfortunately landed on my birthday. One I’ll remember in a sad and bad way. American Airlines refused to compensate me because I got my tickets via Kayak and I haven’t been able to find a number to complain to a Kayak agent whom I sure would say I had to contact American Airlines and nobody would help or take responsilvitu for this disaster."
Pros: "Crew was great. No electrical outlets, wntertainment was mediocre. This was an old 747 that needs an update."
Pros: "nothing, didn't happen"
Cons: "The process of trying to rebook using a third party purchase and a code share ticket."
Pros: "the staff was great from check in at the airport until I landed"
Cons: "I wish the snacks were heathy like dried fruit and nuts"
Pros: "The flight was too short for food or drink"
Pros: "The flight was great--good food, good service, good entertainment, on time."
Cons: "They lost our luggage. Four people traveling together arrived in Phnom Penh, but our luggage didn't. It took almost 2 days to be reunited with our luggage."
Cons: "Taking 2 shuttle buses to transfer from AA to PAL."
Cons: "I booked the flight with Kayak and it showed the airline as Finnair, the flight was actually with American, no complains about it. The issue was that Kayak did not update me with the Flight number for American Airlines and kept sending me information about the flight with Finnair which was not going to actually take place. I had to actually call American and spend time with a Representative providing all the data to be able to get my American Airlines flight booking code so I could check in online. American as always was great! Shame on Kayak!"
Pros: "Smooth ride."
Cons: "Waited on gate agents for more than 20 mins from 1.39 pm to 2.00 pm And this was a scheduled flight. This is sloppiness."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Smooth flight."
Cons: "In flight entertainment was below expectations"
Cons: "Delay No direction help for the gate Bad seats"
Pros: "Easy boarding, nice & quiet customers & crew & darkness made it easy to sleep a bit on this red-eye flight."
Cons: "Lots of turbulence."
Cons: "Rude flight attendants, filthy plane"
Pros: "we had all the necessary conditions for work, rest, sleep and eating. The level of service has increased"
Pros: "Permiten facturar el equipaje de mano ya que el vuelo suele ir bastante lleno."
Cons: "No hay tolerancia con los kilos facturados. El equipaje pesaba 51 libras y me hicieron quitar peso para después aceptar que facture ena puerta de embarque."
Cons: "When we arrived at AirPort El Dorado, we discovered that our flight was cancelled/has been changed without warning us! They scheduled us a new flight with Vianca and Iberia: Bogotá-Madrid + Madrid-Brussels. My partner and I could not sit together on any of these flights! 1 of 10 hours and of 2 hours! I would NOT recommend AA to anyone! This was full responsability of AA!"
Cons: "Flight leaving Miami delayed 1.5 hrs Flight leaving London delayed 3hrs"
Cons: "my luggage was lost between Dallas and St petersburg russia and I waited 5 days to receive it"
Pros: "The flight schedule"
Cons: "The hardens of the seats. Rather seat on the floor"
Cons: "Had to cancel my flight and call the company. Was talking to a computer for 30 min before I finally talked to someone. It cost me in fees to basically cancel my flight which ended up being just as much as my entire flight ticket. Got refunded a total of $12 to use towards my next flight. Never flying or booking a flight with American Airlines at all. Kayak couldn't even help with accommodations. Southwest is the only company that will actually hold those credits for you. Everywhere else is just trying to scam you."
Pros: "Best was nice plane, great seats, and efficient crew."
Cons: "Worst was plane left late, then delayed on tarmac for "passenger count". This made me late for connecting flight and made me lose luggage."
Pros: "Entertainment was good but the system had to be rebooted two times as it was getting stuck."
Cons: "crew was more about relaxing themselves vs. worried about passengers. Wrong priorities! They ran out of food choice by the time they got to our seating area which was at half point of the plane!"
Cons: "I was made to check my carry on in a rush because there wasn't enough space supposedly. I was told my bag would be transferred all the way to bogota. When I got on the plane I saw plenty of space AND when I got to Bogota my bag wasn't there. My carry on had my most important belongings for in case other luggage was lost. It's not faire that other passengers get to carry on suitcases and a personal item and I can not being my small backpack. It's very inconvenient since my rain gear, my shoes and my Phone chargers are in that bag."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and attentive. First class food offerings were good for a domestic flight."
Cons: "Entertainment system on this A330 did not work for the entire flight."
Cons: "Missing luggage is a common thing in British airway, which is not so common in other airways."
Pros: "Flight was on time! Boarding and deplaning was excellent."
Cons: "Food service was below standards for any airline! Sandwiches were stale and salad was soggy. Very disappointing."
Pros: "Originally on American. They couldn't get a door to shut so moved me to British airways. Which is much nicer anyways, so no complaints there, however, American decided they would still deliver my luggage. 24 hrs after I land, nobody knows where it is."
Pros: "We were assigned seat numbers 25a and 25B. When we got to our seats the seats were taken out to be replaced but due to the lack of mid communication with the internal staffs and the ! What??? She said there wasn't any other seats to assign us on the coach level. Then talked to the supervisor and I asked her what if if we upgrade. Then she came back and said it will cost us an additional 7700 euros to seat in the first class yes I do understand her point and told her to forget it. Then another supervisor who was a Spanish lady said to me that sorry the maintenance is falling behind due to lack of comnication and promised that our seats will be fixed soon but she said in the meantime we could find any other seats that are single and sit until ours is ready. Well the two other seats that were available at that was a seat next to the kitchen and bathroom and that also had the seats were taken out. We were very stressed and felt like we were not treated professionally. Anyway we finally got our seats back and the rest was better."
Cons: "We were assigned seat numbers 25a and 25B. When we got to our seats the seats were taken out to be replaced but due to the lack of mid communication with the internal staffs and the maintenance the seats were not replaced on time and when we boarded my husband and u had to stand on the side for at least 20 mins. Then had to talk to the supervisor and and the tall dark lady told me if I not happy we can get off the plane and get on the next one! What??? She said there wasn't any other seats to assign us on the coach level. Then talked to the supervisor and I asked her what if if we upgrade. Then she came back and said it will cost us an additional 7700 euros to seat in the first class yes I do understand her point and told her to forget it.

We were very stressed and felt like we were not treated professionally. Anyway we finally got our seats back and the rest was better."
Cons: "Everything went to plan no delays, or drama."
Pros: "The schedulle was acomplish in each flight"
Cons: "The flight landed about 30 minutes early. We spent one hour on the tarmac waiting for a gate, resulting in us being late .. compromising many with tight connections."
Cons: "The boarding is a joke. They do not tell you which group is boarding and then turn you away if you are not in the correct group. I sat back and watched as the mob tried to board asking each other which group was boarding which no one knew. When I got up to board I asked and was told, "I held up two fingers". Personally I think using the intercom would work much better. I was thinking this was just a one time deal, however they handled it the same way on the return flight. This was the first time I used American, so I do not know if this is their standard policy, but this issue and a long list of others will make me think twice before I use them again."
Pros: "Good crew, left on-time and arrived early, clean aircraft and bathrooms."
Cons: "Being stuffed in like sardines. But, what can one do without paying to upgrade?"
Pros: "Attendants were ok"
Cons: "AA combined two flights (one from previous day that had been cancelled) into our flight. thus the had more people than original plane could hold, so they swapped equipment. I had a business class seat, and the new equipment business class accommodations were not acceptable considering the 4-5x difference in price over coach. Understand AA's dilemma but it is not ok to short your high fare customers."
Pros: "Lots of leg room!"
Cons: "Naplaćene su mi torbe u San Diego po 58$ iako je to bilo uračunato u cenu pri kupovini karata !!! Za torbu od22kg(48),i torbu od15kg 116$! Nije korektno!!!! Brukaaa!!!Sramota!!Nikad više sa tom compani!! Never again!!!! Never!!!!"
Pros: "On time departure and arrival, smooth ride"
Cons: "Again 30 minute delay to get internet working. At least this time they communicated the issue."
Pros: "The flight was very good and no problems were encountered."
Cons: "Nothing to complain about."
Pros: "Short and sweet no problem"
Pros: "It was quite average, nothing special.They severed some drinks and you get a bag of pretzels. The staff was very friendly and nice. It was only a 1 1/2 flight, so the only entertainment is magazines."
Cons: "The legroom was fine for me, but if you are about 6ft tall or over, you will feel a little cramped. Try to get an exit row seat if can."
Pros: "plane is new/crew was friendly"
Cons: "no legroom/food was horrible; worst ever on any flight I have taken to and from korea. Worst"
Cons: "At boarding/check-inn there was inly one young women to handle the crowd of passengers boarding. She was over worked, but did real welll!!!"
Cons: "I had charged 300$ for my extra luggage this morning at the checking ....it never happened to me before usually I paid 100$ but never that much... I will never ever flight with United again for sure."
Pros: "Everything was perfect."
Pros: "I am lucky to check-in earlier with United, staffs at counter is very nice and courtesy, he was able to book an earlier flight so I could catch up on time with my scheduled flight to China, I was boarding the United 9:45 but its departure was roughly around 11:15 am"
Cons: "Flight delay that could affect my international flight connection Which I had only 1:05 between flight"
Cons: "Made me take off sweater out of my bag cause my bag was 0.5 lbs over weight."
Pros: "Flight was on time and luggage was not lost. In flight meal service was better than average."
Cons: "in the last row battling for share if the armrest."
Cons: "United and SAS are really separate and hard to manage reservation. Seats changed from what I purchased and it was uncomfortable. I don't think I will do a mixed airline flight again even though they quote them as a Star Aliance. Also, flying through Chicago ORD is not great. The international terminal is completely separate so you have to take a train, pour out water, enter security (and they don't have a TSA Pre). All around uggh."
Pros: "This reflects first leg flight from San Fran to Chicago."
Cons: "Cramped and uncomfortable"
Pros: "Very normal. The crew was professional."
Cons: "Our seta were separated by two rows."
Cons: "they canceled the flight and put us on american airlines wich was terrible"
Cons: "Flight was delayed until the next morning because of weather"
Pros: "Bad weather caused my flights to be re-routed, but United did wonderful in arranging for an similar arrival time to my final destination. I am very grateful for that. I can't judge the airline on something they have no control over."
Cons: "The bad weather that caused my flights to be re-routed!"
Pros: "The flight was fast."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 10 hours for no real reasoning and nobody was compensated for anything."
Pros: "The Stroopwaffle"
Cons: "The hour delay"
Pros: "We arrived safely on time."
Cons: "Bathroom is too small. Announcements were anxiety inducing. Sick people on the airplane spreading germs."
Pros: "The flight was smooth"
Cons: "The seats felt stiff"
Cons: "Don't like being squeezed in, but it is what it is"
Pros: "Crew were nice and flight was on time."
Cons: "I didn't know i needed an app before i will be able to enjoy entertainment on board, so i had to pay for internet to be able to download the app to be able to watch movie. PA system wasn't gud."
Pros: "Everything !"
Pros: "Both flights were great! They left on time, the one from San Diego left earlier than scheduled. Kayak was most informative with flight info and upon arrival, indicating the bagage claim number via email!"
Cons: "N.A. Everything was great."
Cons: "There is nothing more disappointing than having your flight delayed after a long week when all you want to do is get home to be with family."
Pros: "Seats were comfy, and the snack (caramel-filled waffle cookie) was a nice little treat."
Cons: "I didn't know to download the United entertainment app in advance. Once I found out at boarding, it was too late."
Cons: "The crew was held up in Houston we had an additional lay over onto our already 3+ hour wsot"
Pros: "Every time the winds shift south they get delayed or cancel flights to smaller airports."
Cons: "Multiple gate shifts, lack of communication with customer. Blaming flight cancellation on weather at destination when that wasn't the case at all. Geez don't lie it's not necessary! Had to take flight to Portland extra two hours of ground travel. No reimbursement. Weather issue you can't blame us. Funny the 737 had no issues departing SFO to PDX."
Pros: "Flight crew was friendly"
Cons: "Plane was too cramped. Passengers behind us were rude. Kept kicking backseat all flight (and there were no kids). Little uncomfortable for new plane"
Pros: "I like the complementary soda. The boarding groups system is smart."
Cons: "I don't care for the wifi options. Loud children."
Cons: "delayed 3 hours going there delayed 1 hour 40 minutes on the way back both done the same day. missed appointments the worst experience ever"
Pros: "Friendly and courteous crew"
Pros: "Even with rough weather the flight was comfortable and only delayed 20 minutes. The flight crew kept us well informed."
Cons: "No complaints. I did ask for a seat belt extender and never received it but managed to keep it buckled although it was a tight squeeze."
Cons: "Crumbs, fruit peels, and other debris all over the seating area in my row. Seemed like united was more concerned about getting plane back in the air than creating a sanitized and comfortable experience for the next passenger. Simply disgusting conditions to spend 4.5 hours of your life."
Cons: "all the attention"
Pros: "Great seat"
Pros: "Window seats on both flights saved me on my overnight flight. Thanks Kayak!"
Cons: "The second flight had a pretty old plane with smaller seats."
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "Middle seat"
Pros: "no snacks unless you pay"
Cons: "seats are too tight"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled. Couldn't reschedule a flight earlier than 4 days out. Had to fly standby."
Pros: "That United got me to where I wanted to go."
Cons: "That airline companies are so strict about making changes & the cost involved. I couldn't believe the price to change a date on a return flight. I went to Alaska airlines & bought a one way ticket for $30 less than the price of the change. Better times & schedules too. I was at one time a premier flyer almost a 1K status flyer with United. Now, I don't even bother. United Airlines Suck!!!!!"
Cons: "Delay on flight departure Bagage lost - three suitcases with all my clothes for the travel. The company does not provide any status on the provided telecoms/email."
Pros: "This leg of the trip was fine, on time and they provided blankets! Satisfied, but the mobile version of this rating site does not allow me to change the rating to higher."
Pros: "Kyak Notified me every step of the way basically dummy proofed my flight don't know if other sites do this as well but got gate change notifications and all changes!!"
Cons: "Seat was very uncomfortable. The video screen could not be turned off and kept waking me up, bad on an overnight flight."
Cons: "The flight seemed very unorganized. Once we had to make a random refuel in Canada I knew something was up besides the bad weather excuse they gave. The crew didn't seem to be able to pass any information along and gave either misleading info if any at all. There was no food or snacks given with it being a 5 hour flight to a 7 hr flight with the mishap to get more fuel."
Pros: "It was delayed 3 hours"
Pros: "Crew was very nice."
Cons: "Was late"
Pros: "It gets you from point A to point B."
Cons: "By the time you add a bag, you can fly another airline. And if you're over 6', it's not worth it. I'm 6'4", and my knees touched the seat in front of me for the whole flight. Seats don't recline, so I couldn't adjust at all."
Pros: "The design of the seats"
Cons: "The staff did not work they sat in the back of the plane the whole time talking about other employees captains and how dissatisfied they are with the shifts that they work etc. The crew even had passengers move from the back row 30 so they could have a place to sit in the back of the plane ."
Cons: "carry-on $30?! check in luggage $40?! ridiculous."
Cons: "Charging $45 for carry-on, is way too much, regardless of whether it's a budget airline. Round-trip it's an extra $90. Might as well put that money toward the flight of another airline."
Pros: "seats were some what comfortable"
Cons: "did not like the fact that I had to pay extra for a seat when I already purchased a ticket"
Cons: "the same as above"
Pros: "Getting off the plane."
Cons: "Frontier is all around archaic in a modern world."
Pros: "The crew were very polite."
Cons: "I hated that the seats didn't recline at all. Luckily it was only a 2 hour flight."
Pros: "There's nothing bad about Frontier's service. Flights were on time, staff was courteous."
Cons: "BUT, they don't honor Global Entry or TSA Pre-Check, which is ridiculous! The ticketing agent told me "it's not in the budget." Had I known this ahead of time I wouldn't have purchased a ticket from Frontier. The security lines were incredibly long in Denver and this added a good 30 minutes to my passage through the airport."
Pros: "I got there in one piece"
Cons: "This airline is terrible - the seats are supremely uncomfortable and they charge for everything - even to carry on a bag! I didn't know that before this trip, but I will never fly Frontier Airlines again"
Pros: "I didn't have to pay extra for my seat with extra leg room"
Cons: "There was confusion about my seat"
Pros: "Arrived early"
Cons: "Had to pay for seating"
Cons: "Seats did not recline."
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Small seating"
Pros: "Staff were friendly."
Cons: "The seats are very uncomfortable and cannot recline. I was unaware while booking that they would charge for the carry-on. What is worst is that carry-on was more expensive than checking in a bag. I now understand that it is a budget airline, however, once you include the fee for the carry-on/check-in bag it is no longer a good price for the flight."
Pros: "The crew was courteous and professional."
Cons: "After adding up all of the hidden fees with the "low cost" of the flight, it all came out to MORE than I would have paid if I had booked a flight with another carrier!. As ad DEPENDENT of an active duty military member, I NEVER have to pay for checked luggage, much less a carry on! Once I got over having to pay and additional $150 for luggage, I board the plane to find extremely uncomfortable seats with half of a tray table, all I could do was laugh. The joke was totally on me!!!! For a flight that was over 3 hours long, it was NOT WORTH ANY OF IT!!! I didn't do the research that I should have, and that is totally on me. Fool me once, but NEVER AGAIN."
Pros: "Cheap cheap cheap flights even with paying for a checked bag our total round trip for 2 people was less than $160. We knew frontier was a bare bones plane ride. We had no issues with everything. The seats were a little uncomfortable and the trays were about the size of a check book but other than that the flight was fine."
Pros: "Flight crew were nice."
Cons: "Seats are so uncomfortable in both airplanes I went on, there's no food given to you noy even complimentary peanuts or water . No entertainment at all? Did I mention that the seats were horrible and my back hurts now I'm never flying with Them again !"
Cons: "When I checked in for my flight, the website said I would be three hours delayed. Later in the afternoon I just happened to check my flight status again and my flight time had been pushed forward causing me to rush out the door with less than one hour to make my flight. I barely made the flight but once I was seated we were delayed again. I did appreciate that we were given updates on why we were delayed however."
Cons: "I attempted to contact the airline for over 12 hours and they had no customer support during winter storm flight cancellation. I guess you get what you pay for, so i would expect zero fare for future flights to go along with zero assistance from the airline."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "The lady at the counter was rude. The chairs where so bad I ended up with back pains for days. I undestand its a low fare airline but this airline takes it to the extreme."
Cons: "I'm not happy that I wasn't notified in advance that there would be an added $40 per bag. When flying with other airlines usually one bag and carry on is included in the price. I am not happy that upon arival I was notified my one bag would be an extra $40. That should have been discussed before."
Pros: "The flights were on time and bordered quickly"
Cons: "Very little leg room and seats don't recline. Everything is very basic, no comfort features. The fee for a just a carry on item was surprisingly expensive!"
Cons: "I was locked out of the first flight due to not having the ability to get a boarding pass via the internet. When I arrived, I used the kiosk to get a boarding pass. Was directed to the ticket agent who stated I was too late to get a boarding pas. I asked if there was room on the flight and was told there was a lot of room. This was 1/2 hour before the doors closed for this flight. The agent told be to go elsewhere and that if I were to get to Miami I needed to book through another airline. I found American had a flight that left half an hour later and booked it at an additional expense of $493.10 FYI: I did have flight insurance and was told it is no good and that basically I'm screwed. I hope someone reads this and compensates me for my added expense."
Pros: "That we flew."
Cons: "They lost all the oversized bags and its impossible to find someone to help you. Once we did, they had no idea where anything was and yet the bags were put on the next plane. Where's the communication? If Frontier in Denver knew they screwed up, wouldn't they call SAN to give them the heads up? Late at night, families w small children, wait more than an hour for a carseat that isnt coming only to wait in another line to claim its lost. This if course all after a long flight. Awful. ...and I didn't get a refund for the bag."
Pros: "The crew on every flight was friendly, helpful and even some of them funny."
Cons: "Frontier's decision to nickel and dime everything. To have to pay to choose one's seat ahead of time? To pay for a carry on, for even something to combat the dehydration that happens on flights, is annoying and I won't fly this airline again."
Pros: "Very nice crew!"
Cons: "Delay from Miami to Atlanta"
Pros: "Only thing i liked is That we didnt crash"
Cons: "-$40 fee for personal bag that was slightly over regulation -one hour delay PLUS 2 hours stuck on runway in the airplane without access to water nor could we stand up out of our chairs for bathroom -finally when they were serving food and beverage only paying passengers had first access to food and water even if the crew had to walk all the way to the back and then back to the front to serve and charge them, it took about 45 minutes until they started serving water (of which the second cup of water they needed to charge for supposedly although we got "lucky" and they gave us a free second little glass of water)"
Cons: "Did not have any food or drink"
Cons: "No help from ANYONE from this airline!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! What's wrong with you people??????????????????"
Cons: "I had the flight from San Diego to Denver then we stopped at Las Vegas because of some who had heart attack. I had a meeting at that day I couldn't attend because we were at the airport of Las Vegas from 9 to 2 pm looking for a flight going to Washington DC. They found a flight from Vegas to Denver then to DC but they lay over is 15 hours in Denver and I couldn't wait because I had an appointment for my dad in the next day in the morning for dialysis. So I had to reserve another flight from Vegas to Baltimore directly. And I paid that. Also, there was a lady who checked in the luggage in San Diego. When I was checking in my luggage she told me to pay 30 dollars for my bag while there was another family after me and she didn't get any money from them for their luggage and she checked their luggage for a free. This UNFAIR and impolite. So I need all of my money back also the difference that I paid for the new ticket and luggage. Thanks Wafa"
Pros: "Cheap tickets."
Cons: "You have to pay almost as much for your bags and seat selection as the tickets. Seats are hard as a rock and really jammed together."
Pros: "Customer service does not exist.i iwill never fly again with you or any of your affiliates. Don't bother w a response unless you're offering me a free flight. Good luck, you will need it if you want to remain in business, Sincerely, Lee Arroyo"
Cons: "Frontier is the worst airline ever. Make it look like a cheaper fare but charge you for every possible thing they can. Your seat, drinks and even your damn carry on bag. NEVER AGAIN."
Cons: "honestly this airline is horrible. the employees are all rude and have an extremely large attitude. I've never felt so uncomfortable in my life. and also the seats are extremely hard and do not recline. i could usually deal with this but the attitude of all the employees really ruined my entire experience! i promise you even though this is a cheap air line pay a little extra because its worth it. i will never be flying frontier again."
Cons: "Delay of two hours"
Pros: "A little bumpy, the plane was full. I almost don't make it to the airport on time. But everything else was good."
Cons: "1- solamente daban agua en un viaje de 5 horas 2-la comodidad terrible los acuentos parecian de bus de carretera ... Bueno el avion decia airbus pienso que esta aerolinia no esta capacitada de ningun modo para hacer viajes mas largo de 1 hora 3- de regreso las vegas miami nunca me ofrecieron ni agua 4-los acientos no se podian ni reclinar tan si quiera mi novio tiene los pies grandes y tuvo que ir doblado todo el tiempo ... Entre mucho mas no recomiendo esta aerolinia es barata pero lo barato sale caro gracias!!!!"
Pros: "The base fares are decent and the crew is friendly."
Cons: "The seats are extremely uncomfortable and the airline has taken penny pinching to the extreme and it shows. The baggage fees are way too high."
Pros: "The crew was nice. Not their fault that the seats are uncomfortable and immovable, and that refreshments are not complementary."
Cons: "The airlines company's only concern is to cram as many people as possible into the smallest possible space. Horribly uncomfortable."
Pros: "My name is Yacouba, On the day of the flight I had to return a rental car in a city that I am not familiar with. Therefore, doing so took a little long than expected. I happened to miss the flight. At the checkin, instead of putting me on another flight, they told me that it was over that I had to rebook a new tickets to my own expense. I thought that was not fair enough from an airline."
Pros: "I have to admit that the seats were more comfortable than they looked. But I could not recline."
Cons: "The delays, several hours going to Atlanta and one hour coming back. It appears this is typical for Frontier. Also, $40.00 for the carry on. The deal I thought I had was not a deal. By the time I paid $80.00 round trip for two I could have taken a more convenient flight for the same money without paying for my carry on. I went with Frontier because I thought I was getting a deal. I felt nickled and dimed, pay for soft drinks??????? But the worse was the delays, with no explanation at all!"
Cons: "My flight was cancelled at the last minute forcing me to look for another flight and ending up buying a very, expensive, last minute ticket on United Airline. I could not accept the flight on December 31, 2015 due to many very important meetings. I hope that this will not happen again."
Cons: "My original flight from MIA to Las Vegas was cancelled 1-1/2 hours before takeoff. There was no reason provided by the CSRs. Their instructions on rebooking the flight were severely insufficient and led to much frustration. My 9 am flight had to rebooked to 5:20 pm. I spent all day at the airport and no reason whatsoever was provided. No meal vouchers were provided either. That was a terrible experience."
Cons: "After checking in the night before, we arrived at the gate only to be told the flight was overbooked. We watched for over 15 minutes, more than 10 people run to catch the flight with seconds to spare-only to be told we werent going to get the seats I booked a month in advance. We'll NEVER (almost) fly Frontier again. Only saving grace-a nice supervisor (Mandy) got us a refund plus some. Thank you Mandy."
Pros: "The good thing about my experience traveling with Frontier was safety, I don't care about hours waiting to depart as long as technicians staff gives the great light to get on board. Last and not forgotten is a non stop flight so to me al the compliance end up within 4 to 5 hours .The flight crew was very kind with the passengers."
Cons: "Carry on prices wasn't expected at all, snacks are very limited, seats couldn't lean back. Had this experience by been delayed for 4 hours because technical problems and didn't have the nerve to apply a discount or refund on the trip . Some passengers were upset and concerned about connection flights."
Pros: "The handle on my suitcase was broken sometime between check-in in San Diego and arrival in Madison. Agent didn't know how to file a claim. Later supervisor took over as nd told me that "handles and zippers are not covered for damage." She held up a paper and told me it was in the fine print. The least they could have done was at least refund the $40.00 baggage fee. Bad news poor training . Easy fix but they missed it Joel A."
Cons: "Planes are like buses. Don't fit a 5-6 hours flight No WiFi No leg room even when I paid for better seat Plastic seats like a cheap bus from the 1980"
