Pros: "Got here early"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The Alaska Airlines check in was not simple via a kiosk and had to go see an attendant. She did not add Pre-check to our 4 tickets and we missed not seeing it on the ticket. Had to wait in the regular line. So long the waot."
Cons: "Alaska Airline attendant should ask as a protocol and lesson learned to tell them to have it added."
Pros: "The pilot went around to passengers and apologized foe delay."
Cons: "3 plus hours of delay????"
Pros: "The seats were good and we boarded quickly"
Cons: "No entertainment or snacks"
Pros: "Crew were are polite and had warm hospitality."
Pros: "Friendly"
Cons: "Flight was delayed. Bag damaged"
Pros: "Seats were very comfortable and they provided free movies with a seat console for a 2-hour flight. Great!"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "It was a short flight"
Pros: "Fast flight"
Cons: "Seats were a little uncomfortable. The boarding process took a while."
Pros: "Great crew and seats were pretty comfortable."
Cons: "Dirty cabin, dirty glass, worn out carpet, seats falling apart, filthy privacy crew drapes. The CEO needs to be more hands on and do random inspections."
Pros: "Smooth ride"
Cons: "Left a little late so our flight was a bit late landing in return"
Pros: "Great entertainment system, great selection of movies. Comfortable and well kept up plane."
Cons: "Controls for entertainment system were often broken. Flight boarded late. Few vegan snacks available."
Cons: "If there was a less than one star that is what they deserve. SFO flight was late. They gave away my seat on my connection to Kalispell. They basically blamed me for being late and not being there on time. Two others from my flight were allowed to make the connection but told me that they gave my seat away because I was late. We all showed up at the same time from the late flight. I talked to 3 people including customer service and did not get a single “I’m Sorry”. Do they not communicate with each other when a flight is late and they have passengers for connections running late? They told me they don’t talk. The best they can do is put me standby for 9:30 flight and if I cannot get on that flight I have to wait until morning. My daughter is in a competition tomorrow morning and thanks to Alaska Airlines I’m going to miss it. I’m sitting here writing this review, paying for a dinner I should not be paying for and probably searching out a hotel room until morning when I can catch a flight. Unbelievable the lack of empathy."
Pros: "There is nothing about this flight that my girlfriend and I liked. This was the worst experience with an airline either of us have ever experienced."
Cons: "We didn't like that we were delayed so long that we missed our connecting flight. We were delayed upwards of 3.5 hours and watched a flight going to the same place that was supposed depart 1 hour after us, and it left 30 minutes before us."
Pros: "Alaska is great as always and try to fly with them when traveling!"
Pros: "Terminal 2 in SF is great...whole vibe plus food and seating options are top top...SeaTac needs to up their game feels makes it feels like a food court at a subpar mall."
Cons: "Wish there was in seat inflight entertainment like Virgin America."
Pros: "not too much"
Cons: "We made it to the gate with a good 10 minutes before take off. They did not call our names on the overhead because we were nearby the gate. But when we approached them at the gate counter, I heard the radio saying that our flight was pushing back. WTF?? Luckily they were able to get us on the next flight an hour later. But still, not impressed."
Pros: "I was so impressed by the friendly and efficient boarding process and the on-time departure and landing."
Cons: "USB outlet was loose so cord would fall out (this was true when I flew another Alaska flight earlier in the week as well). Only free snack offering was cookids; prefer a snack with less sugar."
Pros: "No flight delays"
Pros: "Very professional and nice crew."
Cons: "Same as above"
Cons: "Airport was switched from SFO to OAK and I was given 4 hours notice. Ridiculous"
Cons: "Alaska Airlines flight from SFO was supposed to leave at 3:15pm. We finally left around 6:00. Significant delay that made us late getting into Seattle."
Pros: "Missed my flight at it was rescheduled for $25 without asking a questions"
Cons: "nothing"
Pros: "Polite, if overworked, staff. Seating on the new 900-model airplanes is pretty good. Really like that a passenger can sign up for a seat at no extra cost as the time of the booking. Do not change this! Really like that staff get families and wheel-chair bound folks on board first. I fit into neither of these categories, but it is the right thing to do."
Cons: "Boarding inefficient; only one person to take tickets as passengers are trying to board the plane. Why not have 2? One Alaska Air person on each side of the runway. One hour delay on return flight. Potentially it could have been another 3 hours. And the plane would have flown in to Oakland or San Jose, not SFO as scheduled. At first the passengers were not told why. Later the crew told us that it was due to fires in No. California and that instrument landings were being required at SFO which meant longer times. With so many Americans traveling these days, provide more seating. Even folding chairs or fold-down seating along the windows would be helpful. Provide more outlets to charge electronic gear while waiting. For faster plane loading, recommend line up by rows such as, yes that one, Southwest does. 900-model airplanes: Lighting is lousy. Fold-down trays cannot be pulled closer to the seat :-("
Pros: "Friendliness was nice but generic"
Cons: "Hard seats in coach and you have to pay to use a mobile pad to view their entertainment. my opinion they should upgrade their seats like Virgin that they just acquired and take a que from a stellar airline."
Cons: "We had to take a bus to our airplane. It took off a full hour late and it seemed mostly due to horrendously slow gate operations"
Cons: "lost luggage.......two days...............................19 miles away."
Pros: "The staff was friendly, a nice experience"
Cons: "We arrived early and had to wait on the plane for 5 to 10 minutes and it got hotter and hotter. I wonder if there's anyway they could have told the ground crew that we would be early so that we did not have to wait"
Pros: "Would be better to allow blue Tooth headsets to view tv/movies did not have wired head phones and did not want to purchase them."
Pros: "Real tray tables! A magazine! Power jacks!"
Cons: "Waiting for a gate agent so they could open the door in Seattle."
Pros: "Quick boarding, large overhead bin for storage, comfortable seat and headrest, convenient outlet for charging and great leg room. The flight was short, 1 1/2 hour so just drinks other wise you can purchase food. Crew were friendly and clean bathroom."
Cons: "Wish they include a better snack like nuts instead of a cookie, otherwise I would definitely fly them again."
Pros: "Medical emergency on board, crew kept calm. Luckily there was a doctor on the flight, he and the crew attended to the passenger. Reassuring to see such a professional team."
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "on time"
Cons: "preferred a friendlier cabin staff, lousy in flight magazine, rushed service, good for airline cost wise, but will choose another carrier when flying to the Evergreen state ... Yes i will pay more for more, when flying we have a choices, you will NOT be mine $"
Cons: "Waiting in front of the gate for one and a half our after the initial boarding time in uncertainty. If the flight is delayed please tell us in advance, not let us hover around the boarding gate waiting and waiting."
Pros: "Seats were comfy"
Cons: "Delayed and no head rest tv screens :( Flew with my two kids those sure make a difference on how my flight goes"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed by an hour due to maintenance. We finally boarded with good news that it would take us just an hour and twenty five minutes from SFO to SEA. But then there was another delay on the strip for an hour. Then the off boarding process was extremely slow as well. Was just felt like a very long night."
Pros: "Nothing. I didn't take flight due to punishing re book procedure that Alaska employs to basically steal money from it's customers."
Cons: "They weight the value of 1st leg much higher than the return AND they want to charge you $125 change fee. My grandma passed away and I needed to reschedule my itinerary. Alaska stuck to their policies (you know, those pages of microscopic text that is written by lawyers for sole reason of screwing the customer.) I just felt really abused; told them to keep the useless "credit". I booked with Delta. At what point does a company forget who they are supposed to be serving? Perhaps the people that are actually giving you money and keeping you in business?"
Pros: "First Class was so comfortable. The attendants were efficient and attentive, and the breakfast meal was delicious."
Cons: "I wish there was a dinner meal, but the cookies were delicious too!"
Pros: "There was a huge delay due to weather. The plane didn't take off until almost 2am, however the crew kept everyone up to date and did everything they could. Upon arrival I had an apology email from Alaska with a discount, this amazed me as usually airlines don't offer you anything when the delay isn't "mechanical", and even then you usually have to complain. I felt this made Alaska's customer service memorable as they went above and beyond."
Cons: "The seats were small and cramped."
Cons: "I went to the Intl terminal and asked a Virgin employee where to go and they told me to go to domestic. The Virgin employee at domestic told me to go back to Intl, and the Alaska employee told me I should have arrived earlier. I was upset that they were not helpful but I understand this was also my fault for not realizing I was on an Alaska flight in the beginning."
Pros: "The two flight attendants in the aft cabin were an absolute delight.They made the flight a great experience."
Cons: "The captain announced we would arrive early in Seattle and we were in fact late."
Pros: "After flight was cancelled, I called Alaska Customer Service and within 10 minutes, I was confirmed on the 6pm flight to Seattle. Alaska agents were calm and helpful."
Cons: "Flight was delayed with little to no information as to reason for cancellation. A gurney was seen taken down the gangway once the flight appeared. The flight was then cancelled. Passengers scrambled to get on next flight. Meal vouchers were promised but never handed out."
Cons: "My baggage were missing while tranfering from settle to seoul and i made several calls to alaska airline and asiana airline but nobody couldnt track my baggage. Eventually, my baggage arrived 1day after very evening time around 12:00am It feels like i shouldnt book any reservation through Kayak.com i believed booking platform. Unluckly, this happend. Feel bad"
Pros: "Play more Christmas carol during Christmas season"
Pros: "i always prefer alaska air or sw air because the service is best."
Cons: "i have no complaints"
Pros: "All of the crew at the gates and at the airports were WONDERFUL! Very patient and accommodating. They dealt with some very frustrated passengers very well."
Cons: "This was the first time that i had to change AIRPORTS for my initial flight. This caused a HUGE delay in the initial flight. This was NOT communicated well to the passengers..... ALASKA AIRLINES could have done MUCH better with the communication of that delay and everything involved!!"
Cons: "We waited 2.5 hours at SFO for passengers but our they wouldn't wait 30 mins for the people on mine."
Pros: "everything"
Cons: "no complains"
Pros: "This flight was fine. It wasn't really anything to write home about - nobody went above and beyond; nothing was terrible. It could have been better, though. The flight actually landed a bit early, which was nice since it was a bit of a late flight."
Cons: "Pretzels. The in-flight snack was pretzels, which is innocuous and also super boring. Also, no entertainment to speak of."

Excellent service from the flight crew and flight attendants; modern / updated interior and seats.

Cons: "Had unknown jump grade to much better seats No explanation given Too bad it wasn’t on a 6 hour flight"
Pros: "Cleanliness. Safety. Friendly."
Pros: "Crew was solid."
Cons: "Don’t change my seat. Not on time. No food. Luggage with legally checked firearm sent to the wrong airport."
Cons: "Crew was abrasive and put off by people asking for service. Monitors had to be rebooted 3 times. Ran out of water and snacks."
Pros: "Super comfortable and inflight entertainment was amazing"
Pros: "Decent entertainment options and snack offerings."
Cons: "Last 6-8 rows were vacant and for some reason Someone was still seated directly next to me. Why on earth the flight attendants (otherwise great) didn’t make an announcement that there was no need to share a row and encourage people to spread out is beyond me. I mean this is the only flight I can remember in a decade that wasn’t nearly or fully booked, you’d think they’d emphasize that. Instead I got to be trapped like it was a full flight next to a guy with no concept of personal space."
Cons: "A/C was not working well, cabin was too warm and stuffy. Long delay on take off. Can not hear and understand pilot through PA system."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Flight attendants not friendly"
Pros: "Smooth, efficient and timely."
Cons: "Seats weren’t assigned until at the gate even though checked in 18 hours before. Bag drop was horrible. No self service. Was inline for about 45 minutes."
Pros: "delayed, switched to another flight, delayed 3 times...crossed the border at 1am...terrible experience overall"
Cons: "everything"
Pros: "Everything! I appreciate that the ticketing agent helped me get an earlier flight and I appreciated the gate agent making sure I had a good seat! I love Delta!"
Cons: "Nothing honestly"
Cons: "Connection at Schiphol often tricky;"
Pros: "Check in person was very helpful in rerouting our flight."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed 3-1/2 hours. The gate crew booked us in another flight but did not issue a ticket, so after transferring to another terminal, we were sent back to the Delta terminal to be issued a ticket to a third airline since we already missed the second flight. Then, they lost our luggage"
Cons: "My monitor isn’t really working after rebooted. And the audio hole wasn’t tight enough"
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "More water offered by crew"
Cons: "Crew could be on time for work so the flights aren’t delayed"
Pros: "I appreciate how Delta always takes care of their passengers. Comfortable seating and accessible entertainment"
Pros: "free movies on the flight"

Cons: "Great"
Pros: "Entertainment options were very good"
Cons: "Plane was too warm,"
Pros: "No delays..arrived early"
Cons: "Restrooms were dirty"
Cons: "They changed the gate twice on me and by the time I got to the correct one, the flight had already left."
Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "The plane was hot"
Cons: "Call center tried moving us to later flight that was also delayed by 3 hrs despite telling us it was on time. Fortunately a gate agent moved us back to orig flight"
Pros: "Had the whole Comfort section to myself!"
Pros: "I like Delta but this crew had such a shi**y attitude it was contagious. Yikes!"
Cons: "The gate staff and the flight staff. Rude"
Pros: "We boarded quickly, in zones. Staff were professional and courteous."
Cons: "Perhaps more than just 2 episodes of some TV programs eg Goldrush. Also more current shows."
Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Attendant probably trying to be funny"
Pros: "Staff were friendly and boarding was and getting off was easy because flight was super empty. Timeliness was appreciated too."
Cons: "Seats don't recline far enough."
Pros: "The t.v. 's at each seat"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Free meals and entertainment"
Cons: "Can someone please improve airline food?!"
Pros: "We upgraded to Delta Comfort, since the flight was a bit longer. I'm glad we did; it made a great deal of difference to have the extra space. The in-flight entertainment (individual displays on the backs of each seat) was excellent, the crew was excellent, and the flight was extremely smooth."
Pros: "Nice crew. Clean cabin."
Cons: "My outlet didn't work and it made it impossible to make the most of the internet I purchased."
Cons: "One lavatory didn't work and we had to use the nathroom for first class..couldnt access bathroom half of the flight"
Pros: "Getting to the correct destination."
Cons: "The fact that the lack of knowledge regarding international travel visas by the counter staff and supervisor meant that two days of the vacation were lost. Upon arrival in China the 144 hour travel visa was granted with no problem within minutes, but the U.S. staff was completely befuddled by the possibility. The interrogation was completely stressful and resulted in a reschedule of the original flight and during the second attempt at flying even an email from the U.S. consulate with a link to the Shanghai/Chinese government immigration site was deemed "not official enough". i will be expecting proper compensation. I was once given an $850 travel voucher for voluntarily giving up my seat, and was flown first class to Hawaii, given 4 star accomodation and then flown first class on to China within 48 hours. This was an involuntary bump from our chosen flight time, all because of a lack of knowledge about current visa regulations and international law on the part of the check in staff. We have been loyal Delta users for over 15 years, and this was the biggest blunder ever. Also humiliating and extremely frustrating, stressful and a big problem with fulfilling our travel plans between son and father."
Pros: "The seats were the widest with the most cushion and padding I've ever had on any flight, I think all their seats were like that. The plane we were on had more leg room than your average flight. Also the backs of the chair were very tall, leaving even mpre head room perfect for tall people . I fly a lot and sometimes my knees hit the seat in front of me or when they recline it shoves the tray to close to you. Not on this flight there was enough room for me to lay back in the seat had the adjustable headrest that went up and down and also curved in to hold your head from falling on your neighbor next to you. Love the fact they had the USB plug-in in front of you. And the crew constantly kept coming through to empty trash and offer beverages. The plane was clean bathrooms in front and back of the airplane. Over all quiet engine and we were above the wings. Temperature good."
Cons: "The crew member that was checking in people at the gate would talk so fast we could barely understand what he was saying on the overhead announcement. I was traveling with someone who was hearing impaired so we were unaware of that they were getting ready to board. The electronic TV monitor wasn't updating to say boarding to notify people that would be helpful for the hearing impaired. Or--if a crew member is muffled on the announcement or talks too fast you can't understand or know what's going on. The most frustrating thing for me and my daughter we were both expecting to use Delta online entertainment. There are no monitor screens in the seats in front of us on this plane. So we were able to use our phones, but it would not download and once It finally downloaded we couldn't upload any of the movies. Connection speed way too slow. The warning said there were too many people on it at that time. Also I like it when they offer free headphones for people that don't have them. An example that would benefit people that don't want to listen to loud people on the plane or babies that are crying."
Pros: "The new Delta planes have great leg room for tall people even in coach."
Pros: "Individual screen and USB port"
Cons: "No issues that could be controlled I.e. Person in seat in front for mine leaning way ......"
Pros: "entertainment system included lots of good choices and free. Crew attentive and friendly. Fairly comfortable seating. Boarding was quick (with Delta Amex card). Several snack choices instead of just the old standby of pretzels."
Cons: "Captain not at door to greet passengers as they left - usually a given."
Pros: "Whoa, we flew Coach and had plenty of space! How marvelous to not be packed in; crew and passengers were wonderfully relaxed, and all went well despite turbulence on takeoff and landing. Great daytime flight experience with my toddler grandchild!"
Pros: "I liked the service. It was incredible."
Cons: "I did not like the delay or the continued delay on the runway"
Pros: "Bags arrived on the belt quickly"
Cons: "Why is there not saying precheck to use after you've been funneled through customs? ATL is advanced enough to have kiosk for arrival, even for those confused and not with global entry, but then forces you to wait in security line instead of the typically faster tea precheck line. Every minute I'm in line, I'm not spending money"
Cons: "Boarding took too long - full plane and double seat booking changed 10 minutes early estimate to 20 minutes late"
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "The delta comport seats were not comfort seats were hardly comfortable and the leg room wasn't worth paying for."
Pros: "I've never seen such a modern and easy to use entertainment system before. All the movies are complimentary."
Pros: "Having window seat"
Cons: "Everything was fine"
Pros: "Free drinks"
Cons: "Corn nuts for snack. I'm allergic to corn. I get people want snacks on a flight and you can't make everyone happy. It was ok. I just said no to them."
Pros: "empty plane"
Cons: "food"
Pros: "."
Cons: "Plane was too hot!! Ac nor working !"
Pros: "I was moved up to seat 9E from 16E move leg room makes a difference"
Cons: "I had started a movie on the earlier flight but I could not finish it because it was not offered on this flight"
Cons: "The plane was cold!"
Pros: "My first time flying Alaska Airlines. Absolutely will be back. Comfortable, spacious seating. Staff was professional and friendly. Flight was seamless from beginning to end!"
Cons: "Excellent flight, no issues"
Cons: "The flight comfort was very bad. The plane was extremely warm and people we beginning to feel bad. Several mentioned it and asked multiple times to have the the cabin air conditioning turned down"
Pros: "The seat was super comfortable, because of o lot of place for legs"
Cons: "The crew sometimes seems not to be happy with the passengers"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "4 hour delay, downgraded equipment - AA is becoming a horror show"
Cons: "Leg room"
Cons: "They need to have better policies for morbidly obese seat mates who feel entitled to lift the arm rest and take over a good part of the neighboring seat. With a full flight, the attendants couldn’t change our seats and said that they realized I was out a horrible situation"
Cons: "The gate agents called all boarding groups with the boarding queue extending the entire length of the jet bridge and into the terminal beyond the gate area, making us stand in line ten to fifteen minutes longer for no reason."
Cons: "Everything. My first leg of this trip was the worst flight I had ever been on and this leg lived up to that standard"
Cons: "Weather related, mostly, so not AA’s fault"
Pros: "Boarding was very smooth because the fligh had a lot of Sears availabke"
Cons: "Make AA a real earline to serve passengers not profits"
Pros: "The crew was awesome, very attentive and helpful."
Cons: "The plain was very old meaning no screens, outlets, pretty much no entertainment what so ever. Seats are cramped."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The seat assignments based on loyalty status - rude gate agents"
Pros: "Overall the flight was great"
Cons: "I didn’t like the restrictions on the fare and being reminded several time with negative emails from the carrier about the restrictions."
Pros: "Nothing, this was a miserable flight."
Cons: "Gate at Philadelphia was tiny with not enough space for everyone on the plane, it was a 6 hour flight and no snacks beyond pretzels were available-not even for purchase. I'd just come off an 8 hour international flight where I was provided lunch, ice cream, a pot pie snack and frequent beverage service. Somehow as soon as you are flying domestic on a slightly shorter flight American Airlines thinks its okay to treat customers like garbage-nothing but some sad pretzels and 2 rounds of drink service was provided for a 6 hour flight. The seats were super uncomfortable with no head rest, no personal entertainment devices were provided, and there was no general entertainment for the whole plane-seriously I've never been so bored. I would have fallen asleep from boredom but the seat was too uncomfortable so I couldn't even do that. The plane landed in Seattle but sat without unloading passengers for 20 minutes because the gate crew wasn't ready. We didn't get our checked baggage for over an hour after landing. When asked, customer service reps said that the S gate was far from baggage claim-seriously I'm not sure how that is a reasonable excuse. Other airlines arrive into S gates and have timely baggage claim service. American Airlines has no standard for timely baggage claim service like other airlines (Alaska) so there were no repercussions for such late baggage service. We left the airport with our luggage over 90 minutes after the plane landed. The entire experience is just another example of American Airlines of why the terrorists won't even fly American Airlines. I was seriously disappointed to find out that the British Airways flights we booked were operated by American instead of BA crews. I seriously will never select this option (or fly American) again if I can help it."
Pros: "The inflight entertainment. They had a touch screen with a great selection of movies, music, and TV shows to kill the time with."
Cons: "No peanuts."
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: "Both the departing and returning flights departed in schedule and arrived a solid half hour early. Staff was accommodating and friendly, and very helpful with me juggling luggage and a toddler by myself."
Cons: "Plane was delayed over an hour!"
Cons: "I was on a flight to Dallas on an American Airline flight which arrived late due to weather conditions, and the connecting flight didn't even wait for me although they know why I couldn't make it on time. And I was only late for about 5 minutes."
Pros: "On time. Comfortable seat. Courteous crew. Easy transfer."
Pros: "On time flight, as comfortable as can be hoped for."
Cons: "Non-economy plus seats are too small. Boarding frequently complicated by passengers who create issues with overhead space and carry ons."
Pros: "The flight crew were amazing!"
Cons: "Gaye agent refused to let me take my medically necessary medical equipment and meds on board. She refused to look at my Dr note that TSA had no problems with after screening. It was humiliating and horrible!! I have a video ad well as statements on the flight from other passengers regarding how she treated me it was horrible!!"
Cons: "Left s half hour late because they had to shift cargo, then we taxied on the runway for what seemed like a half hour. My wife and I purchased our tickets in July but could never pick our seats and ended up 9 rows apart."
Pros: "In flight movies were varied, with both new and international films to watch. Flight attendants were nice. Boarding was smooth."
Cons: "Spent a while sitting on the plane waiting to take off because of some kind of delay, but that meant I could spend more time watching the in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "We thought we were going to be flying on British Airways American Airways."
Pros: "Comfortable, very friendly helpful staff"
Cons: "Nothing, well I miss the movies shown on their divides rather than my tablet"
Pros: "Everything was great, but they didn't serve ANY complementary food on a 5 hour flight. What happened to lunch?"
Pros: "while our flight was delayed, they kept us well-informed about what was happening and didn't leave us in the dark. We were delayed because an fight attendant failed to show up, and there happened to be another off-duty flight attendant passenger on board who volunteered to work the flight so that we could still depart on time. Real thoughtful dedication!"
Cons: "I was not a fan that the overhead compartment for my row was not available due to the life raft in there. I understand you have to have one on board, but I think it should be more at the emergency aisles. Also the size of the seats and the space you get is not really worth the price anymore. No matter how big or small someone is, its not comfortable. Airlines need to get back to how the seating was back in the day with great leg room and the seats are a bit wider than what it is now."
Pros: "Flights on time and entire flight was a good experience for my 18 years old son to a first flight on his own."
Cons: "Maybe a better food choices"
Cons: "Got a notification of a TWO HOUR DELAY departing SFO. Rebooked into Charlotte instead of Dallas to connect to Fort Myers. THAT flight got delayed AFTER the doors were closed by another 45 minutes which caused me to miss my connection to Fort Myers AND have American Airlines leave my bag in Charlotte. I rebooked into West Palm Beach to drive to Fort Myers and my bag stayed in Charlotte even though there was ANOTHER 45 minute delay to change a tire on the plane. If I practiced medicine the way the airline handled customers, I'd kill every third patient!"
Pros: "Movies in flight."
Cons: "That I was rebooked and lied to at first as to why, and when getting another ticket the the ticket agent said the flight was rebook because "the crew didn't want to come to work". Not cool, I didn't react I simply got my ticket and just wemtnonw but there was no apology like they didn't care what I missed having to be rebooked I also wasn't given any sort of military discount no seats no baggage. Other airlines I've flown the past months always do something for military."
Cons: "Dry / borderline rude staff and hostess. Dated plane. Tiny seats. But that is pretty much the baseline of airlines in the US. When will carriers start to take note from International carriers..leaps and bounds ahead."
Pros: "Nothing I could not take the flight"
Cons: "They did not let us board because the connection time was not enough for our bags - no one took accountability and they finally rescheduled us on a flight the following day after 3 hours on the phone. Terrible"
Cons: "Never made the flight due to flight not getting in to Chicago on time. Still stranded here with my son. Supposed to be sent to Hartford then Dublin later today. Overall a very bad experience with American Airlines. Wouldn't recommend travelling with them again."
Cons: "My tickets ultimately were booked through Kayak/webjet. I will never book through webjet again. You can't directly speak with an agent. They never sent me my e-tickets. I couldn't download my tickets prior to arriving at the airport. It was super confusing because I couldn't figure out whether I was flying on British Airways or American Airlines. I didn't know what terminal to go to. I finally checked in with American even after they told me to go to British Airways. Next, American said that my booking was messed up such that they couldn't check my bag through. So at Chicago I had to exit the Secure area, pick up my bag from baggage check, check it back in and go back through security. I still didn't have my ticket for the chicago-barcelona leg of the trip. At American, they told be I had to exit the airport again to go to British Airways for the Chicago- Barcelona leg of the trip. Luckily, i asked another agent and she confirmed my flight was though American. It was the most confusing flight experience, I have ever had."
Pros: "The entire fly, connections, food and both crews excelente. Flight on time."
Pros: "Airline and crew looked after us and kept us informed. My app said the flight was delayed but the captain didn't seem to know this so we sat for half an hour or more after planned departure. Maybe he hoped to get an earlier slot. We were 30 mins late in the end."
Cons: "No food for purchase, just a drink and biscuit."
Pros: "Excellent crew."
Cons: "Obese people should have to declare their weight and pay for two seats."
Pros: "I liked nothing."
Cons: "We boarded an hour early. It was at least 80° on the plane, and then everyone got on. The crew was very rude. They ignored everyone in coach."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "They charge for everything luggage they can see in the front desk. My 63 years old mother had her small size hand carrier, a travel tote on top (with her travel blanket and her medicine) and a crossbody passport size. They told her to put it in her tote!!! Only 2 items allows. ... In the plane she saw passengers carried way more than what that."
Pros: "I had my first experience in the Admiral's Lounge at O'Hare and enjoyed it very much."
Cons: "My traveling companion's tray table was disgusting when she folded it down for beverage service. She asked for a wet towel and the flight attendant was snarky but went to get one without even looking or asking to see what the problem was. Her entertainment console wasn't working so they reset it but instead it reset mine (two seats over) they did this again and I let them know it was resetting mine. I was told that I was not in the seat they were resetting for ...I inquired if perhaps they should try to reset mine and see if it would, in fact, fix hers..it did. When she slipped off her shoes the carpet was soaking wet. This was a really crummy, crummy flight."
Cons: "it was really bumpy"
Cons: "Charlotte to Seattle flight: The food served in first class smelled awful. Seated in premium seating just behind first class was unfortunate due to the atrocious odor that lasted for 3+hours. There was no option for food service for the rest of the plane. Which was unfortunate as I was very hungry. Due to inconsistent notification that the plane was delayed / on-time (kept switching the notification) we opted to not get dinner in the airport..... To which the plane was was an hour late yet we were told to check in every ten minutes to see if we were boarding. There were no blankets. The plane was incredibly cold. The suggestion I received from the flight staff was to turn off the vent above my head (which I had already done.) I had brought a jacket and was wearing pants. On a 5.5 hour flight, the crew served beverages 45 minutes into the flight (per usual) and handed out a pretzel pack. They didn't come back through with water or beverages again. On other airlines, they promote water at least once an hour to keep swelling and dehydration down. Since I am a pretty frequent flier, I bring my own water. Still, coffee would have been nice. Suggestions: increase beverage service to at least twice / 5.5 hour flight and provide blankets upon request. Food choices and entertainment would also be good. Don't cook stinky dinners in first class and allow it to pollute the rest of the plane."
Pros: "The Good: The seat configuration available for an upcharge of $38 gave just enough additional room to make getting my frail elderly mother in and out of her seat and accessing items she needed from a bag stored under the seat ahead of me much easier and safer than it would have been in, say, the sardine can-like conditions of the coach section on United flights."
Cons: "The Bad: At boarding, American does not provide pre-boarding for those who need extra time. I was traveling with my elderly mother, who can walk (very) short distances but is quite frail. American was great about providing a wheelchair to the gate, but then we were on our own. Because there was no designated boarding for people needing extra time or assistance, I had to sharp elbow my way to the front of the post-first class boarders and talk folks into letting her through. Stressful for both of us."
Pros: "Pilot on return flight got us to our destination 30 minutes early (unfortunately there wasn't a gate for us to pull into so we waited 30 minutes on the Tarmac)."
Cons: "Departing flight was delayed over eleven hours because a flight attendant was ill. They actually had to fly in a flight attendant all the way from Texas to cover this Seattle to JFK flight! So our flight departed a whole day later and we missed a day of our vacation (we arrived at 7pm instead of 7am). I understand things happen but this was not weather related or a mechanical issue. This is simply poor personnel management. They should have a back-up plan if an employee falls ill. One that doesn't involve flying in an employee from another region of the country, let alone another state. The inefficiency continued on the return flight when it took a whole hour for the luggage to come out! Will avoid flying American again at any cost."
Pros: "On time flight"
Cons: "Gate agent at SF was rude and unprofessional. While waiting, gate agent at gate 65, flight 647 started the following, “group 1 boarding, group 2 boarding...everybody, let’s go let’s go”. She went on to call out one, Hispanic customer with limited English, “come here, you can board now”, rude rude."
Pros: "Love the ability to watch films on my device by way of United WiFi"
Cons: "Better snacks"
Pros: "Better staff"
Cons: "Still terrible"
Pros: "Liked the exit row."
Cons: "Hated the delay of more than 90 minutes."
Cons: "Loud and obnoxious gossiping throughout the flight. Using profanity and talking about personal issues. Extremely unprofessional."
Pros: "Good boarding"
Cons: "Delay and no food or movies"
Pros: "The fact that we actually left."
Cons: "Delayed and upset passengers. Bad breath from passengers circulating in the AC. FA we're okay nothing above and beyond."
Cons: "Bags separated at boarding when there was overhead space left on plane and gate agent saying "no space left"..."
Cons: "Entertainment cut in/out"
Cons: "In Osaka I was not able to get a boarding pass for this last leg. In SF United and Air China were both not able to give me a boarding pass because I was not listed in their system. I have no idea why. Very frustrating."
Cons: "Second mechanical delay for me on this trip with United and the plane felt very old and rickity. Extremely delayed into Seattle until 2:40am"
Cons: "P"
Pros: "Staff was very good at their job/duties."
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable and cramped."
Pros: "Boarding quickly"
Cons: "Delayed"
Cons: "Captain was 1 hour late, then wasn't prepared with a gate when we arrived in Seattle. I got home 3+ hours later than I expected, and I have a short vacation time."
Pros: "Very smooth fligh and very friendly and helpful staff"
Cons: "The seats were extremely crammed and there were no movies or shows without purchase"
Pros: "It was a short flight"
Cons: "I didn’t like not having to choose our seat assignments after we booked our flight. I have used Kayak on many occasions and I was able to choose my seat after booking. I was not able to do that after I booked my flight."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "No blanket"
Pros: "None"
Cons: "Flight delayed by almost 2 hrs"
Cons: "Late late late. Had to run to get my connection. Not Uniteds fault though. SFO too busy. Will avoid in future."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "The employees"
Cons: "The delay of 3 hours."
Pros: "The flight attendants were as great as they could be given the situation."
Cons: "Sat next to someone quite large I had to squash myself uncomfortable every time someone needed the restroom. This happened frequently as our plane was discovered to have electrical problems immediately before takeoff. Our flight was delayed 2 hours because of this."
Cons: "Narrowness of seating."
Cons: "Long delay"
Cons: "No wifi... with the amount you pay for the flight, seems insane you have to pay for wifi too"
Cons: "Plane change resulted in middle seat in far back instead of aisle originally."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I was very I'll and could not complete this flight. Was told by airline to call Kayak for changing date of flight for $50 vs $200 they would charge. Ticket was less than $200. I called Kayak. They said sorry it will cost you $200 per airline policy. Either way, this is unacceptable to me. I will stick with Southwest who let's you change flights on all fares if you use it within one year. So since change fee was more than ticket I just ate the cost. Not happy with UNITED or KAYAK. Won't use either one again."
Pros: "Cheap fare"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Staff was rude and it was some what ok"
Pros: "The morning cookie was good."
Cons: "It was dirty."
Pros: "No charging docks on plane as military duffle bag open with clothing hanging out on arrival ~ not sure if anything stolen but the threat is very real and it's unacceptable for military bags to be delivered in that manner"
Pros: "on time"
Cons: "cheap plane w no overhead, no air conditioning hot sticky flight. typical united experience."
Pros: "All fights.. On time made it home safely Friendly crew both ways.."
Cons: "Entertainment should be easier to access.. And Free!!"
Cons: "One of the crew members at the gate! I believe her name was Jackie or jaciquiene at SF was the most inconsecrate women I have ever met! She was yelling at me to put my bag in the bag to see if it will fit. She was completely rude and acted like she hated her job! I will NEVER fly with UNITED again! I will be contacting United regarding this issue as well! The other lady at the gate called her led and after that she contacted her supervisor and they also didn't let me on the flight! This was the worst experience I have EVER had! I will NEVER FLY WITH UNITED AGAIN."
Pros: "Food was good"
Pros: "Our names are Steve and Jan Hovde if you have any other questions about our flight concerns. We can be reached by phone at 360-332-8414. We did not call FAA, but still very much a concern. We have flown United other times and many other airlines and many Boeing 737's...we noticed other passengers looking at each other because of the clunking and growling sounds."
Cons: "most important I vowed I would try and call FAA about safety concerns with the plane. Mechanical noises prior to take off , during flight(right fan whine) - could hear it when started engines in SF., Some loud clunking at take off bringing in landing wheels and again letting down for landing in Seattle. When plane came to stop at the gate, again some noises we have never heard before on 737's. Please check out that plane more closely. Part of our concern is that Pilot mentioned before take off that they had problems with scheduled 737 and they needed extra time to locate another 737 that could be used(Why our take off was rescheduled twice and different gate)......it seemed that one that had been mothballed may have been brought out to use......We did mention some of this tactfully to stewardess' standing near exit when we got off the plane(She seemed surprised and wondered what we were talking about. We were so thankful we made it. We just figured that flight crew would be tracking these odd noises and pass along to captain if he couldn't hear."
Cons: "Horrible airline"
Pros: "There's really nothing good to say, because it never happened."
Cons: "Same problems I had with the Phoenix to San Francisco leg. The flight never happened. It was cancelled and I was stuck in Phoenix another night, missing my kids. No compensation was offered. When I asked, they said, "oh, we don't do that." Yet another reason to never fly United ever again. Alaska doesn't have to be asked for compensation, they just compensate you, period."
Cons: "Showed up at airport w 2 15 yr olds traveling alone. We're told we needed to pay $150 each way. We were NOT told when tix were purchased. Accused of lying about the girls ages when we booked. Tix were booked and paid by two different parents and times. Agent relented and waived fee. At the gate we were again challenged and had to go thru it all again. No more United for us!"
Cons: "Should load the plane from the back rather from the front. People in the back can sort their stuff while still be able to load people into the front."
Pros: "Flight crew was attentive and kind."
Cons: "We had to sit on the Tarmac for 20 minutes before taking off due to low cloud cover over Seattle."
Cons: "The delay ruined our evening and made the expense of a hotel for the night and babysitting moot because we might as well have flown the next morning. So much for seeing friends in Seattle on Thursday night. A 2 hour delay means we just get to sleep in an airport hotel for no reason."
Cons: "i did not see anywhere when checking in on line that there was a charge for checked bags or that the self checking had to be done 45 minutes prior to departure."
Pros: "While waiting in the terminal for everyone to board and the plane to be cleared you got your options of watching everything on the Direct TV headrest screens. It was interesting to see what people watched at 1am (4am my time)."
Cons: "Received another handful of snack mix, which was fine. At least I knew not to eat it this time. Once the plan took off, the headrest screens asked you to pay some ridiculous amount of money to watch them for the hour that we were on the plan. I wasn't surprised, but I never found out who killed the lady in my show. Bummer."
Cons: "Horrible overlay"
Pros: "I just missed my flight by a few minutes. The crew was very helpful for booking me in the next flight."
Cons: "No entertainment at all."
Cons: "Flight was super delayed. Missed our connecting flight. Ruined my plans and trip"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "EXCELLENT"
Cons: "Everything was great beside the flight price. Besides that it was EXCELLENT!"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Service was the worst. The poor training of the staff, is clearly a result of poor commitment by the company to provide good customer service."
Pros: "The price was cheap, but the cost was great."
Cons: "The very 1st words I heard out of the mouth from the very 1st frontier employee I met was "this is going to be a bad day". When they checked my bag they never said thank you, for us flying with frontier. When boarding, the "bad day" employee treated the customers as if they were cattle. Not one stewardess smile the entire flight. And when I asked to stretch after using the facilities only 1 time during the 4 hour flight, I was told (in a very sarcastic voice) "as long as you don't come into our area!" Followed by a faded whisper of "shiiiiiiit". All this, plus a 3 hour delay. What more could you ask for? Next time, I'll pay a little more for the customer service."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed 2 hours leaving San Francisco going to Orlando. My mother checked a bag which cost $35. The ticketing agent picked up her bag and slammed it down on the conveyor belt. I was so shocked at the rough handling of my mothers belongings and the fact that the agent didn't give a care. My sister and I were charged $45 each for our carry-on bags. They began boarding us but the flight crew made us wait on the walkway to the plane for 15 minutes before they let us on the plane. The flight crew was rude and disorganized. The seats did not recline, next no padding and the chair back in front had no padding at all. There were no complimentary drinks or food provided on the 5 hr flight. We were threatened by the passenger behind us twice but no assistance was given by the flight crew. We are extremely disappointed and will never fly Frontier again. We should have paid the extra money to fly Delta from TPA which would have taken 2 hours off of our drive time. We visited Frontier's website which provides nothing but excuses for why they charge extra for EVERYTHING. Overall Frontier may have some of the cheaper flights but after you're done paying for the extras you may as well fly with a carrier that provides more comfort and better service. Frontier has lost our business."
Cons: "You have to pay for regular seats that does not recline, And you have to pay for the carry on laugage, the price to check in the bags is more expensive than in any other airline."
Cons: "Misleading about fees. They bait you into buying a ticket with a low fare but then charge you for seating assignments, bags, even a cup of water. I ended up paying as much or more than a better airline but without any of the comforts. The seats are terrible."
Pros: "I really enjoyed the camaraderie i shared with my fellow passengers. Adversity really brings people together."
Cons: "Frontier as a whole, I was unaware, is a 'not good' airline. Smallest seats I've yet experienced, no recline, no legroom. If you don't want to pay $35 to check a bag, it's cool they understand, they'll happily take $40 to let you carry a bag on. Well, not happily. More begrudgingly than happily. Customer service was poor, bordering on hostile from one sky waitress in particular. It's hard to blame the airline's employees for their poor attitude, as I would be disheartened and upset if I was surrounded by a plane-full of customers vowing to 'never fly frontier again'"
Cons: "I was sitting near the front, (row 5) and wanted a cup of coffee. The stewardess served the seats in front of me total of 3 cups of coffee. When she got to me, she said there was not any more coffee available!!! So... why do you make less than one pot of coffee on each of your flights? This was really weird!"
Pros: "Comfortable flight"
Cons: "Not even water was free! $35 to bring a carry-on on plane! Seats flimsy. If you add fees, it's not actually a deal, and it's not a pleasant airplane. Won't use them again if I can help it."
Pros: "I liked everything except I was a bit surprised to find out it was an extra $40 for my carry-on each way. I would've paid the extra $80 upfront but it seemed a little bit sneaky to add it on when I got to the airport. Otherwise it was a very enjoyable experience."
Cons: "Thirty minutes trying to book my suitcases online only to have online trying to double the cost of my ticket to book tickets that were marked $0. To change that I had to start all over. So annoying to try to get justice and end up paying $30 extra in baggage fees. All the while they continually said how easy it was to book suitcasrs"
Cons: "Cheap uncomfortable seats make the lack of legroom even more noticeable. Forget about the headrest or even the ability to recline what little but most airlines offer. And to top off having to pay for my bag, the crew apparently just "forgot" to unload my bag and I had to wait for them to deliver it to me later."
Pros: "Yes, on Frontier you have to pay for any extras - more cushy seats, baggage beyond carryons you can fit under the seat, beverages, food, etc. However, the price of the flight is worth it, even if you add on baggage charges. And a direct flight is priceless."
Cons: "We were a little late boarding, but still made it to Houston on time, so not a big deal, and often unavoidable."
Pros: "The crew was nice, flight on time and fine."
Cons: "I don't like the fact that you do not recycle, yet you provide goods that are just placed in landfills and will take hundreds of years to decompose. The airports recycle, is it that difficult to make that happen for Frontier? The hundreds of plastic cups, plastic bottles, cans, etc. etc. is mind blowing and is something I pay attention to. I actually took my item back to the airport instead of giving to the crew at the end so I could place the item in the recycle bin in the airport after asking your crew if there was recycling. They said there was no recycling. I also picked up a plastic bottle from another seat on the way out to help clean up since I knew you guys would throw it out anyway. Thanks for considering being more sustainable, eco-friendly, and for thinking about my comment seriously to minimize your airplane's environmental impact. I will pay attention and voice my concerns elsewhere as well - recycling shouldn't have to be done by the consumer, the businesses need to step up and make it happen."
Cons: "Sat on the plane for an hour before takeoff and a half hour after landing. Let us off this damn plane. Nickle and dimed for everything from carry on to seat selection to a soda. Will never fly Frontier again. Southwest FTW."
Cons: "At every point, this airline tries to nickle and dime you. Costs for luggage and carry ons drive the price up to that of other tickets. The seats are very cramped and do not recline."
Pros: "The staff and crew were handling the situation well given the hand they were dealt."
Cons: "6 hour delay before they found replacement airplane, waiting till almost all food was closed before issuing meal vouchers, chairs do not recline at all, no head rest padding."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Canceled my flight 30 min before takeoff, and didn't get us on another one for 2 days."
Pros: "I actually like that you cannot lean your seat back. It's too imposing on the passenger behind you."
Cons: "They charge extra for everything. Every seat has an extra charge except for the middle seats in the very back row. Once you've paid for your seat and for your carry-on bag(!), you've paid as much as you would have flying with Alaska, American, United, etc. There was no entertainment whatsoever on a 5 hour flight (not even for purchase) and no snack provide either. I believe there was food for purchase but I didn't even look at it. Also, they do not support TSA pre-check. This would have been something the representative I called should have informed me of but instead she told me she had updated my records. So in addition to the fee gouging, their staff are either uninformed or outright dishonest."
Pros: "There was, surprisingly, more leg-room in the exit-rows than I've seen on many other airlines."
Cons: "Charging for the checked-in baggage is bad enough, but charging more for the carry-on bag? I could maybe understand charging fees for every customer interaction (a fee for changing ANY part of the customer's name after?) for short-hop trips, but not for flying across the country."
Pros: "#1 include the information that seats/baggage/drinks are NOT INCLUDED in the low fare- prior to booking. #2 None of the seats recline except rows 1,2 & 3 Which are $50 plus dollars extra. Pulling a red-eye on this aircraft was horrible."
Cons: "This airline is misleading and the planes uncomfortable."
Pros: "Airline ticket cost."
Cons: "Rude flight crew and the only thing that doesn't have a fee attached to it is the use of the bathroom and drinking water."
Pros: "The crew and staff for Frontier is always nice, helpful, and pleasant."
Cons: "The flight was delayed. Luckily for us it was not an issue on this flight. However, I have never flown with Frontier where there was not some delay."
Cons: "They charge for carry on baggage and do not make you aware of this at the time of ticket purchase, so it is a surprise. They do not provide even free water in-flight; everything, including even water, is for purchase. Water should really be free. The initial prices are therefore misleading since they tack on many additional fees that are not standard in the airline industry."
Pros: "I was extremely disappointed with Fronteir airlines this was my first and only experience flying with them, and though the ticket price was great, it simply was NOT worth it! There were additional costs for everything! When I attempted to get my seat assignment I was told they assign at the gate, or I could PAY an additional fee for choosing one myself. And, they charge extra for your carry on bag. And expecting to at least be offered a soda, maybe a mini bag of salted pretzels if lucky (lol), I was SHOCKED to be told 1 soda was $1,99! Additional cost for any snacks or anything other than water! The aircraft was very dirty inside the bathroom as well as on and by my seat, as though it hadn't been even wiped down in over a month! (Pretty bad!) The flight crew were all very good I must say. I asked one of them and was told that 2of them were brand new employees. It really showed! They were much friendlier and genuinely cared about customer service! Refreshing! So, overall I would have to rate it low, and highly unlikely to fly with them again.even the checking in process was a real headache! I am glad to have received this questionaire , as I had planned on actually taking the time to sit down and write a letter as well as request a full refund , or credit for a friend, family member, or myself . You do run some pretty excellent deals, and I would like to welcome the opportunity to experience Fronteir in positive light, a nothing but positive experience. Thank you very much. Sincerely, Dr.Tamra D.Lyngaas 20426 102nd Ave. S.E., Kent, Wa. 98031"
Cons: "Two of your flight crew were caring and genuine it seemed. Great attitudes and upbeat!"
Pros: "I didn't like anything about traveling with Frontier."
Cons: "Upcharge for Seats, Upcharge for Checked Bags, Upcharge for Carry Ons, Upcharge for Water. They charge you for water. That seems illegal. The flight was delayed, the gate was changed. We had to change gates which means we had to go through security twice. The staff blamed everyone and everything else (even the passengers) for all the issues and took ZERO responsibility for anything. I can't believe they are still in business with this level of customer service. The flight attendants were ghetto too. Making light of a bad situation by saying the worst things possible. Total embarasment transfer. I'll never fly Frontier again and will think twice about booking travel with Kayak."
Pros: "Co-pilot who had to explain to passengers why so many flaws occurred in this flight, she tried to be humorous."
Cons: "Flight 1884 out of SFO was doomed from the beginning starting with a notice (thanks Kayak) via email that the flight would be 1 hour late. Then, the Departure board at the airport totally dropped the flight, Then (again thru Kayak) I read that the flight would NOT board in terminal 1, Gate 21, Domestic terminal, but ar gate A3 in the International terminal. We all had to exit domestic and go to international and again through TSA. Then the flight departed another 30 minutes late finally over 2 hours LATE! Upon arrival at Phoenix the plane taxied too far away from the exit ramp-another 40 minutes before we could depart. It was an awful flight experience. Did they offer a free soda or anything for inconvenience we experienced-NOT A THING!"
Pros: "Wellllllll it didn't crash I guess that's about it"
Cons: "An hr delay, only one working bathroom, rude staff, late 45min wait for checked bag. Overall got to my destination in Denver about 2 hrs late."
Pros: "The price only"
Cons: "The service is minimal. Everything but a seat selected by the airline is extra. I knew that in advance, but buying a cheap ticket requires you to put up with poor customer service. The Frontier cabin crew spent most of the time on both of my flights in the front and back of the cabin talking among themselves. Both flights made you feel like a sardine. Get you on and off as quickly as possible so they can get the next herd of sheep on board for the next flight. No seat adjustment button. The refreshment tray attached to the back of seat in front of me one half to one third the size of trays on any other flights I have ever taken."
Cons: "Brutal turbulence leaving Denver. We noticed a crack in the wing upon landing in Denver. Rudeness seems to be a prerequisite for Frontier flight attendants as they charge for water and carry on bags. We refused to pay the additional $13 to select our seats and as a result were seated on the last row of the plane. Kayak should really add the cost of seat selection, a carry on bag, and water to the price they are showing to be more realistic."
Cons: "Told at the checkin desk it's $35 per person to "confirm our seats" -- two in the exit row as all that remained. Why? I paid $250 per person to confirm I wanted on the aircraft. I showed up 1.5 hours early to check in. Also told at the desk it's $40 per checked bag ($45 per carry on!). So when I get to the airport I'm forced to pay $150 more, just to fly to my destination. Credit card only. The lady checking in next to me paid me cash so I'd help her pay her extra fees. Not how to treat your customers. That's what I call a scam. If all this was in the small print, I missed it, and it was tough to find, having booked through Kayak. Won't be duped again. Goodbye, Frontier."
Cons: "Both flights to & from Denver were over 30 minutes late unloading passengers. This particular flight was late on all counts.15 minutes late beginning boarding. Departed over 30 min. Late and arrival was about 40 min. Late. I do like that charging for carry on means people board /load and deplane/unload quickly.We get what we pay for and Frontier is cheap. We payfor each little add on, reserved seats, beverage, carry on, etc.Good option if cheapness is primaryfactor over comfort, convenience, or reliabledeparture and arrival schedule. Unrealistic tight scheduling means little time to clean or prepareplane between flights."
Pros: "my seat was moved to a vacant seat."
Cons: "two crying kids and two parents who could not control their kid from kicking the chair I was sitting in and flipping the tray and waking me up. The parents did not have toys for them to play with."
Cons: "Seats did not recline and were very uncomfortable. Couldn't believe you had to buy your drinks. No snacks. By the time that I paid all the a'lacart it cost me more than a flight with Delta or Southwest. Will not be flying Frontier again."
Cons: "They don't ever provide water! But, then, the fold-down tray was so small a cup wouldn't balance on it."
Pros: "I like that it is inexpensive because I would not be able to fly otherwise."
Cons: "I've ridden Frontier several times but never have I ridden on a flight that doesn't even let you put your seat back. For a 4 hour red-eye, this was a huge disappointment."
Pros: "Ending."
Cons: "First time flying Frontier. Great advertised rate round trip Sea to Denver $140 vs next best AK at $170. Receive email to pick seat, Suprise... They cost $9-36 each way, no mention of free seats if you just show up and go open seating. also Suprise# 2 carrying are $40 each way. I choose $18 seats and had a carry on so total trip ended up being $140 + $126 in a frontier gotcha money an increase in fare of almost double. I did find out about the seat chafe scam before checking in and asked to just go open seat.....uhh no. So how much would the Alaska Air trip have been....$170 plus $0 for assigned seat and $0 for carry on so $170. So fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me.... Their will not be a twice and I suggest Kayak add some notes to fares to avoid future bilking by Frontier."
Pros: "clean plane"
Cons: "I haven't flown Frontier in a while. I didn't realize I have to buy my seat too? What the heck is that? Sure it's only another $13 min. But here's the catch, you get a seat They've replaced the pull down table with a small flip down "table" that is about 1/3 the size of a standard table. While this does offer more legroom, it makes eating difficult and uncomfortable. I could not rest a standard square salad container on it during the flight. Luckily, I had a plastic bag from the vendor that I could put over my slacks to act as a big placemat. I didn't want to spill dressing on my pants. No WIFI onboard In short, I will be avoiding Frontier in the future. I do fly budget airlines like SW, but at least the attitude there is better. And what you get is clear."
Pros: "Pretty much nothing."
Cons: "The fact that you have to pay for a seat - any seat - and carry on, and water, for God's sake. Unreal. Rude flight crew ("take your body parts out of the aisles"), incompetent and rude boarding crew (completely ignoring boarding order, except to make one elderly Asian man leave the line - while clearly letting everyone else board in whatever order they pleased.) Horrible plane - ridiculously uncomfortable seats, no legroom at all. I am 5'10", healthy and middle-aged, and sat with my legs crunched for 4 1/2 hours, leaving me almost unable to walk after the flight. I will never ever fly Frontier again if I can help it. And I will absolutely tell everyone I can not to either. Awful experience."
Cons: "I sat in the last row. The smell coming from the bathroom was so bad that I gagged multiple times. Air ventilation must be worked on in frontier planes. This can not be sanitary to have bathroom air blowing on the last row. Anytime someone closed the bathroom door, our row of seats shook."
Pros: "The flight was the cheapest"
Cons: "Flight was a hour late. Gate personnel were uninformed and discourteous, seats were extraordinarily uncomfortable, tray tables were unbelievably small and not even water was free. I've flown no frills before but this was terrible."
Cons: "Flight was old and couldn't adjust seat when we get to airport was big line and only one agent working I won't take this company any more dispointed"
Pros: "Boarding was fast and easy."
Cons: "After purchasing my ticket via Kayak, I was shocked that at check-in I then had to buy a seat. Add to that the charged for a carry-on and the cost of this flight increased by $41 each way! It is more honest to know that charge up front then to bait you will low fares only to be charge for other expect"
Cons: "Your check in on line is too confusing. Too much advertising mixed in with the check in process. Your food and beverage service SUCKS. No snacks or drinks unless you pay. Prices are rediculas for a drink. One little bag of peanuts or crackers and a soda is not too much to ask. We already pay too much for the ticket and luggage fees now we have to pay for a snack and drink. This may be my last frontier flight. And when are you going to get a better boarding system so I don't have to crawl across two people to get to my seat??"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Plane cancelled, no help from frontier customer service, will never fly on this airline again"
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"
Pros: "The flight attendants were nice. This is the best I can say about Frontier Airlines."
Cons: "Whoever designed the seats does not understand the human form. They were TORTUOUS to sit it. I had to take my emergency anti-nausea pill, the seats torked my body so badly. I was in so much pain after I arrived at my destination at both ends, I needed medical help. Charging extra for every little thing was insane. They didn't even give you a basic drink without drooling into your wallet. I have never been charged for a carry on bag before. Checked luggage yes, but never carry on. Both on the flight out and on the flight in, they missed the boarding gate, so we had to wait a long time while they lined it up with the airplane. A frightening lack of training here. Flying sucks. I understand that; that's the way of the system now. This went so far beyond the basic suckage of the regular flying experience, it was unbelievable. Frontier will NEVER be getting my money again. Probably the most expensive flight for the least comfort and amenities you could find."
Pros: "Crew was great. Boarding was great as was checking in with security."
Cons: "Paying for coffee is ticky tacky, as is not understanding clearly how many charges Frontier adds to ticket cost. Bad news as between seat, baggage, food my ticket was almost twice as much. Not good for public relations. Very disappointing."
Pros: "Extra $60 for carry on bag, no tsa pre-check, uncomfortable seats which don't recline, no free beverages, no entertainment system, extra fee for selecting a seat or you're stuck in the middle without room to move or stretch. It's the last time I fly Frontier if another even slightly more expensive option is available."
