Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "2 hour delay on take off"
Pros: "there was nothing to like. A few hours before the early morning flight Alaska cancelled the flight and rebooked us fir a flight 12 hours later. Their phone is off during the night and we had to go to the airport in the middle of the night to get a flight that would get us to our cruise on time. A"
Cons: "use something other than Alaska and it will be better"
Pros: "Nice seats. Good crew"
Cons: "Tell us it's in terminal 1. We already had to go back and forth through terminal 2 from checkin on one side, back up escalater to other side, then back to check-in side through security. I had to drag my checking bag since you have an extra small check-in size, so my roller stayed home. Then once upstairs it's 1/2 mi through the terminal back to 1. I would have picked up a bag mover if I had any idea. Since I did check-in on line, I could have gone directly in terminal 1 if I was told. I also would have missed my flight if I hadn't come early to the airport."

Cons: "When I went to check in in San Jose, they told me I was double booked on the flight to Seattle. One booking was paid for but not connected with the Reykjavik flight and the other booking was not paid for and connected to the Reykjavik flight. I spent 30 minutes at the first class check in counter of alalska air and then another 20 minutes at the gate almost missing the flight."
Pros: "Fast abs friendly, knowledgeable staff."
Pros: "Fast service, very professional and great customer service! Overall, a very pleasant flying experience."

Cons: "No complaints!"
Pros: "Great service"
Pros: "I love traveling Alaska airlines. The staff is amazing, easy loading on plane etc. My only complaint is the minuscule seats. Seriously, why so tiny?"

Pros: "Very on time . New airplane . Easy ride"

Pros: "Early arrival."
Pros: "Legroom was fine."
Cons: "We bought six tickets as a group for a flight to Cabo, three months ahead of the date of flight, paying almost twice as much as the fares were later. We also promptly checked in 23.5 hours prior to departure. Unfortunately, Alaska assigned no two seats together. We couldn't change it because they said the flight was full. Our two kids flew with us, and one of whom is a 12 year old girl. Even she couldn't be accommodated to sit with one of us. The staff on the phone and at the airport were of no help because the flight was full. In all other international flights I have taken over the past 30 years, the airline company always does group seat assignments appropriately so we are all seated together. Disappointed. Won't be recommending the airline to anyone. Sorry."
Pros: "noting they suck"
Cons: "they where late taking off because one of there stewardess was late one hour ....HORRIBLE SERVICE....."
Cons: "TSA needs to get their act together. This was ridiculous. Boarding is always going to be a 1/2 until the airlines can figure this out. Whatever their doing isn't working and it is just getting worse."
Pros: "I loved the staff and the quickness of flying and boarding. Everyone was very polite and satiafactory to me."
Cons: "There was a malfunction in some electronic computeres on the way home that left us sitting at the airport on the plane for about fifty minutes. And i had to get back to go to work at midnight."
Pros: "Ease of boardong and on time"
Pros: "Take off and landing were smooth."
Cons: "I am writing on behalf of my mom. She said it would be nice to be inform ahead of time that she had to take a train/shuttle in order to get to baggage claim. She was very nervous as she was traveling alone for the first time."
Cons: "Poor free entertainment options"
Pros: "The food was okay, general airline food, but they were really nice and gave a full can of soda to the mother and child sitting next to me to split. Great crew, good timing. I also can't stand when there isn't pre-assigned seating so I love that Alaskan offers that."
Cons: "I'm above average height, so i always have an issue with leg room."
Pros: "San Jose, Calif to Guadalajara. Super nice crew, had some leg room in economy. Some drinks, two cookies and a bean burrito. Not much, but small quantity good amount in morning."
Cons: "Seats a bit slouchy. No lower back and headrests to forward. Made me more hunchback, and lower back achy (maybe that's normal for 3-4 hour). No tvs, snacks OK."
Pros: "Seats, coffee (serving starbuck"
Pros: "I liked the snacks and beer on the plane but that was it."
Cons: "I was 5 minutes late to my 6:30am flight because of sjc security being the worst, slowest, people ever. Then I was promised I'd make it on the 7:30am flight to Seattle but there was only one seat available so my friend went and I stayed behind where I was then told I'd definitely get on the next flight. But wait!! I wasn't allowed on the next flight and had to wait until a 12:55 flight all while sobbing and having the worst anxiety attack of my life by myself. So I'd have to say that was the worst experience of my life. Thanks!"
Pros: "We boarded early and arrived a LITTLE earlier than expected. That was nice. Overall the flight was OK."
Cons: "The "snacks" were less than impressive. And when the attendant, in her thoughtlessness, poured me half a cup (what is it, a 6oz cup?) I asked for more (at least the other half of my cup) and I got water... Gee, thanks. And they should really be more diligent about checking and re-checking the overhead compartments. One popped open on the return flight. And looking back I remember noticing that it didn't look flush with the rest. Thankfully no one was hurt."
Pros: "Plane wasted full."
Cons: "Nothing everthing well done."
Pros: "short flight... only 45 minutes. Small plane but comfortable"
Cons: "It would have been nice if the email for checking in explained exactly what it meant and whether or not online check in was mandatory. As someone new to flying, it was a bit confusing."
Pros: "Overall good flight"
Pros: "This one was late due to maintenance issues, but they beat the new take off time by 30 minutes and I had plenty of time for my connector"
Cons: "Being tall it is a little uncomfortable with head room in the restroom"
Pros: "The crew was simpatic and servicing"
Cons: "The in-flight systems did not work even in the USA. Too limited offert of free entertainment when it worked"
Pros: "Clean, roomy, not a packed flight. Great price and friendly crew!"
Cons: "No internet in the flight"
Pros: "The male flight attendant was not very attentive. He would serve me first and then lean over my food and drink to serve the guy on the window seat. I had to ask him every time if he could take away my glass and then my wrappers and then my...well everything. Many people from the main cabin came up front to use the first class bathroom, and he didn't stop them. He abruptly woke he up three times with his loud voice talking with passengers...with no regard of the sleeping passengers. He is more suited for the main cabin. He didn't offer any help when I was struggling to put my bag in the overhead bin. He watched as the young lady flight attendant struggled to open the plane door... I did not feel that the cost for first class was worth it. He never responded when I thanked him for each thing he did...nothing...not, "You're welcome" or "my pleasure." So, it was a first class disappointment."
Pros: "Crew was super amazing and friendly! Very good service also!"
Cons: "No seat back entertainment.."
Pros: "The best other than the fact it was packed full lol but that’s not Deltas fault"
Pros: "Super comfortable and inflight entertainment was amazing"
Pros: "Leg room"
Cons: "Not sitting in an airplane without AC for 30 minutes after everyone loaded"
Pros: "The flight itself was excellent. Friendly, helpful, kind — great attendants and crew."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 4 hours. We never found out why exactly. That was a little tough but staff was great"
Pros: "Boarding was very efficient. Flight attendants were helpful and kind and seemed to care."
Cons: "We booked basic seats knowing we might not sit together however we did not know they would separate children. They put my husband and I in an exit row and my daughter at the back of the plane with strangers. I was not comfortable with strangers being responsible for my child. I assumed they would seat children with at least one parent. We did ask to move at the gate and the accommodated us with the last row on the plane. No recline, no window, and right next to the bathrooms. We took it to be with our kid but this policy needs to be revised. Kids should always be seated with the adult responsible for them... who knows what kind of person might end up next to my child. Not to mention if she had needed something is the stranger gonna take care of it? It’s just a bad practice imo."
Pros: "Crew was great, very generous with snacks and beverages, and prior to boarding we were able to switch flights and seats without problem. All the Delta agents were extremely helpful, and had great customer service!"
Cons: "Far in advance I requested a seat with extra leg room for a back condition that is supported by a physicians note. The seat did not appear to me to have extra leg room. I was very uncomfortable."
Pros: "Quick and easy boarding and departing. Wonderful and friendly staff."
Cons: "Honestly, everything was great. Food and entertainment were a little lacking but for a 3 hour flight it was more than acceptable."
Pros: "Great crew, prompt and courteous despite the short flight"
Cons: "Flight departed an hour past scheduled time due to a snafu with flight attendants: they were either absent or really late or a replacement crew. Unacceptable personnel management."
Pros: "Amazing crew"
Pros: "It suited the time i could travel"
Cons: "I felt although they said the two attendants were great they were at best mediocre especially the man"
Pros: "Very fast and efficient boarding process. We began moving right when they closed the door. Smooth flight, friendly attendants."
Cons: "Stop charging $2 for headphones lol"
Pros: "Handing by any cap was great to get us on the plane on time."
Cons: "The plane we got on time to board was delayed enough to miss our connecting flight, so delayed another 3 hours when missing the next flight."
Pros: "Flight was mostly uneventful, which is great! Right after takeoff we made a complete circle and no information was given as to why, but we assumed it was air traffic."
Cons: "Great flight"
Cons: "It was so cold! People all over were asking for blankets and commenting on the coldness"
Pros: "The crew was polite and pleasant unlike the crew from KC to Boston."
Cons: "Telling us to check bags before we get to our seat and find out there is no more room."
Cons: "I wanted an aisle seat."
Cons: "Just a bunch of weather delays because of the bad storms. I did not like the selection of movies and tv shows on the delta flight. So I just listened to podcast in my phone. But other than that everything was great."
Pros: "Helpful crew."
Cons: "These planes are tiny. Our equipment was B717."
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"
Pros: "New plane with good features. I was very comfortable."
Pros: "On time, good flight"
Cons: "No power on outlets at waiting room airport, charge 2 dollars for earplugs"
Pros: "The movies kept my daughter busy."
Pros: "Staff’s attention and patience with customers was great. They knew many were frustrated with the delay but they met our needs with a smile"
Cons: "Weather delay was a real bummer but I liked the app wanted to help reconnect people with other flights. The app should also tell us the reason for the delay, if allowable, especially if it weather. I almost hoed on another flight through Minneapolis but would have been stuck in Minneapolis cause I didn’t know the delay was due to weather an hour later."
Pros: "Professional, courteous, and responsive attendants and flight crew."
Pros: "The flight was nearly full, but I lucked out. One person in my row did not show up, so myself and the other lady in my row had the benefit of having an open seat in between us. The crew was cheerful and accommodating. They did the normal beverage service, but also brought complimentary water and coffee 3x during the rest of the flight. This was greatly appreciated, especially after 5 days of drinking and partying. My buddies and I spent two and a half days in Las Vegas for a bachelor party followed by two days in the LA area for a wedding (yes we did it Hangover style) :) Thank you Delta!"
Cons: "My only complaint was that the flight was delayed out of LAX by about 30 minutes due to the flight in-bound being delayed. However, the captain made up most of this time in the air so it ended up being a non-issue."
Cons: "We were on the tarmac for almost 2 hours. It's probably LaGuardia but the experience was very bad."
Pros: "Flight management and service is better relatively"
Cons: "Gate agents are useless"
Pros: "The quick flight was nice, the flight attendants were super sweet and kind and were willing to give me extra snacks when I requested for them. No screens on this flight, but understandable since it was such a short flight :)"
Pros: "I liked the boarding process."
Cons: "Bigger seats are more helpful."
Cons: "Delay over one hour."
Pros: "Very on-time and fast, respectful crew."
Cons: "The airplane was old and with no entertainment."
Cons: "The crew didn't even have the decency to wait for passengers to deplane. They were long gone by the time we got off. I found this pretty terrible service. Oh yeah and they announced the wrong arrival gate too. I'll never fly Delta again. There are better airlines that treat customers with more respect."
Pros: "Courtesy seating"
Pros: "Flights were on time..."
Cons: "Worst seats ever. Uncomfortable. Didn't recline and were supposed to. Was told by the attendant "that's too bad. It's supposed to" when I mentioned it."
Pros: "Movie selection"
Cons: "They want us there at 4:20 for a 6:20am flight but Clear doesn't open until 5. I was through checkin by 4:23. Why bother if one can't get to the breakfast facilities for another half hour plus? Then Peet's had no pastries."
Pros: "Everything was just as I have come to expect -- efficient, polite, and courteous crewe"
Cons: "At least 10, including my entertainment systems didn't work as soon as we took off. A 4 1/2 hour flight cross country with no entertainment, very disappointing. The crew was very unorganized, they couldn't even figure out how to give drinks and snacks in an efficient manner with initially skipping several rows without asking about either. Seat headrests were not adjustable up and down."
Cons: "Sold us a flight with unassigned seats"
Pros: "Take off and landing was incredibly done. Almost unnoticeable that didn't make me nervous at all."
Cons: "Very rude flight attendant - unnecessary attitude"
Pros: "New and improved food options!"
Cons: "Boarding took more time than usual. They were able to accommodate less carry on baggage."
Pros: "the embraer 175 is VERY comfortable, despite being a smaller jet."
Cons: "Just an FYI - the small overhead bin space on the Embraer 175 made it so that many passengers bags needed to be checked at the gate to baggage."
Cons: "horrible boarding management in SJC."
Pros: "the flight on Delta and Virgin Atlantic was nothing other than brilliant!"
Cons: "everything - service - facilities - food - amenities - an overall wonderful experience!"
Pros: "Our stewardess in the economy cabin was probably one of the best we have ever encountered. She was very courteous and personable."
Pros: "Pleasant flight overall. All else normal."
Cons: "Nothing negative stands out"
Pros: "Each leg of my flight from San Jose to Anchorage was met with helpful staff and courtesy beyond the price of my ticket."
Pros: "Great flight"
Pros: "delivered as expected"
Cons: "drink cart earlier and more often"
Pros: "Friendly crews"
Pros: "Great flight overall"
Cons: "We were told that we get one checked bag free, but at check-in were told we had to pay. So much for low prices!"
Pros: "British Airways I feel did everything to make it as best as possible."
Cons: "American Airlines (British Airlines partners) are a horrible airline. My 8 am flight has a mechanical issue. Which they kept up on the plane till 11. Now no mater what other plane I catch idmiss my connection in Dallas. Which means I don’t get to Paris on time. Which ruined my plans to surprise my gf and propose to her. It took one call to British Airlines to get me rebooked. Something american was taking hours. I still won’t make it on time but at least I’ll make it. American then misplaced my luggage and it took two hours to retrieve it. Turns out it was sitting behind the counter the whole time the kept telling me it would be on the baggage flame area."
Cons: "The plane had several problems mechanically. After we boarded we spent another hour waiting for the problems to be repaired. It added an extra hour to sitting."
Pros: "Although the flight was delayed from San Jose and Chicago yet they reached as per original schedule time"
Pros: "Gate attendant kept us informed frequently as to the status of the flight"
Cons: "Rudeness/snappiness of the stewardesses"
Pros: "Flight boarded on time and landed 30 minutes early. Best part is the gate was open in Chicago so we truly arrived early. Flight crew was great too. Very helpful and courteous."
Pros: "Ease of boarding and on time flights"
Cons: "Leg room and entertainment"
Cons: "I did not like that the airline would not give a seat on an earlier flight so that I would not have to spend so many hours in the Chicago O'Hare airport. I did not like that the airport only allowed me thirty minutes of access to the internet. As a result, I could not work while I had to wait for my flight. Finally, I did not like that the airline lost or delayed my bag."
Cons: "Airline throughout mentioned connecting flight passengers are okay as the flight will land almost at the scheduled arrival time but once onboard bluntly announced that we don't have further information. This is cheating"
Cons: "Flight was 1.5 hours delayed with another 1 hour delay on the tarmac"
Pros: "Boarding and debar king was quick."
Cons: "Attendant was surly, no coffee, no continental breakfast as indicated on the reservation. Very disappointed with in-flight service."
Cons: "No pre boarding for family with kids"
Pros: "On time. Polite gate reps. Helpful crew. Smooth flight and on time."
Cons: "- This was an older Boeing 738 plane that American Airlines refurbished. It still has the old style overhead bins and just feels old, - Like on many on these older planes, the power outlets don't work. - No food offered, even for Executive Platinum member. Unpleasant crew."
Pros: "Legroom was decent and the flight was fairly empty. So lot of space."
Cons: "No vegetarian food though it was mentioned earlier."
Pros: "No fees for carryon, like Republic charged on the way out"
Cons: "NO seats available on booking, without paying extra. Never could sit together, even though booked together. Greedy but stupid."
Pros: "Smooth sailing. Staff pleasant and professional. Orderly flight"
Pros: "We had a very pleasant staff!"
Pros: "On time departures. Friendly crew."
Pros: "Long wait for take off. Everything else was great."
Pros: "We had a wonderful flight experience. Smooth take off and landing. The in flight service was impeccable! Will definitely be flying American Airlines again."
Cons: "Not letting me know my first leg was operated by AA was very confusing and frustrating. I couldn't find Westjet at the airport at all. Had to guess from the departing time!"
Cons: "Because it was a day later!!!"
Pros: "Much better than the trip to chicago"
Cons: "Had to wait on the crew Short fight rushed service"
Pros: "Boarding was fine. We started late but they managed to get us to our destination on time so I made my connection with no problem."
Cons: "I had on a jacket but I was so cold I was shivering. I asked if I could have a blanket but I guess they don't have those anymore. The stewardess did ask them to give us a little more heat but it must have gotten turned back because I was shivering again by the end of the flight."
Pros: "The gate agent was able to find me another option."
Cons: "The phone agent was really bad at helping."
Cons: "The flight was not smooth, it seemed like the pilot didn't know what he was doing. I arrived an hour early for my flight and my bag got left behind. I'm only here for a day and a half and my bag won't reach me for another 24 hours. Really poor experience with AA."
Cons: "Looks ghetto and no wifi"
Pros: "Water and sodas"
Cons: "Onboarding crew made me pay 200 usd for extra weight without telling me that I could move lbs from one bas to another and pay less."
Pros: "The price is competitive. On boarding was ontime. Though the flight was redirected to Omaha due to bad weather in Kansas City, it was only an hour late than the scheduled arrival to Kansas City."
Cons: "The WiFi was not as expected. In flight entertainment is null. Snack would have been better."
Pros: "Nice plane when we finally boarded it. Crew was very professional."
Cons: "Endless advisories, the official explanation of the flight delay and estimated departure was constantly in flux."
Pros: "efficient, courteous staff"
Pros: "very good no problems.."
Cons: "all good thanks much"
Pros: "Flight was delayed but boarding at DCA was very efficient and quick"
Cons: "Flight attendants seemed bothered by something and weren't very nice. They looked/seemed tired. Cabin lights were on the whole time for a ~3 hour flight which began at 830pm."
Cons: "This flight was added as they cancelled my flight directly to London then they dropped this flight and had just Phoenix to Lindon! It took many calls, one with over an hour wait, where were told different stories and expectations. I did not receive an actual ticket until the very morning if this flight!! It was very stressful!"
Cons: "The delay my fly canceling poor communication I miss my dates etc"
Pros: "My flight was delayed and this is the second time Emerican airline will not give us at least food vouchers to help us out. The receptionist act careless about your situation, I'm still Stuck in Phili where I wa supposed to meet my connection flight, I had to spent the night at the airport!!! American air line is know for this type of dilemma, I will never again fly with American again. I just don't understand how they are not liable for anything at all!!!"
Pros: "Short smooth flight, perfect landing, isle seat in the exit row was very nice for stretching out legs"
Cons: "Charging $25/checked bag...not so cool. Will check other airlines before booking with American Airlines again. Additionally, setting for 15 minutes waiting for the ground crew to extend the ramp for disembarking the plane in AZ could have been better but manageable."
Pros: "Crew very courteous"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours. I couldn't run my business that way!"
Cons: "So the flight was canceled initially due to crew being over clocked but they should have been able to tell ahead of time instead of them claiming that. I think it was poorly passed down the line and can save every one more time. So even though everything was good after that and the flight the next day was fine I'm still giving this a 2 because of how American Airlines handled the situation."
Pros: "Free entertainment"
Cons: "Spacing is really tight"
Cons: "flight was already very late, and then delayed by an hour on top of that. very little time to make my connecting flight."
Pros: "Again, on time and efficient"
Cons: "Flight attendants very serious"
Pros: "Flight was fine."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 3.5 hours. No reason was given."
Pros: "Safe flight. Clean plane. One nice lady at the gate who did her best."
Cons: "Many of us (15+) on this small plane lacked seat assignments. That meant we all had to wait in a queue at the gate for them. They started boarding the plane before they issued any seats assignments to us (we all had confirmed reservations, and we weren't in a group or anything). Then they decided that the premium fliers ought to get the empty 1st class seats, so they had to get in front of us in the queue to change their seats. Anyway, the boarding was essentially finished before they issued any seat assignments. In the end, they gave me two boarding passes for my son and none for me, but the lady was nice enough to just send me through (I was in the system in a seat, apparently, but the printed card had gone missing somehow). Once on the plane, the cabin and ground crew were quite pushy in hurrying everyone to get strollers packed (yes, there was a guy with a baby wating for seat assignments). It didn't affect me at that point, but it was really rude. It just takes time to get children on board, and it was the airline's fault they weren't boarded first. BTW, the flight was operated by American."
Pros: "Loved the scanning boarding pass !!! And the constant email updates .. Plane was one hour late"
Pros: "Good pilots"
Cons: "Service is dismal and run down interior. Rips in seats. Lags way behind Asian or certain European airlines"
Cons: "The airline cancelled my return flight home from a Venice without notifying me because they said I was. “No show” on my previous flight over. This was absolutely not true. To cancel someone’s flight and not alert them is highly unethical."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Very cramped and uncomfortable seats in Economy. 2 hours late arriving in KansasCity."
Pros: "Crew allowed me to sit beside my wife in economy plus seating."
Cons: "United Airlines lost my luggage in Chicago after going through customs."
Pros: "Captain was communicative before departure and during flight Boarding was orderly"
Cons: "After aircraft was parked a strange loud noise could have been heard for 30 seconds. Would be nice if a crew member (flight attendant or captain) assured passengers that it was normal. Noise didn't seem normal and I was very concerned. No infotainment options."
Cons: "Kansas City airport is in need of a complete remodel."
Pros: "the large Wide body plan"
Pros: "Had no food so don't know. Entertainment system was available, but did not use it."
Cons: "Would have been nice if I could turn it off the entertainment system."
Pros: "Food for purchase available is a good idea on long flights"
Cons: "People don't like surprises. Charging extra for seats, charging extra for luggage resulting in jammed overcrowded overhead bin space are not good ideas. United seats are smaller more cramped than your competitors making for an uncomfortable flight. Flight had no in flight entertainment or ability to charge mobile devices"
Pros: "That transportation was available in Chicago."
Cons: "No problems."
Cons: "Flight delayed"
Pros: "The crew was again nice enough to find an empty seat next to mine."
Cons: "The layover was very short. Fortunately, the gates were very close together. However, since I didn't have time to get lunch in the terminal, I had a snack box for lunch, too. This was rather monotonous. There aren't enough chocolate choices on the snack menu. There were no limes for my beverage. There was no in-flight entertainment available. I had hoped to finish the movie I started on the first leg."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful. They saw I am a large person using a crutch for my foot and upgraded me to business economy with an empty seat next to me. The plane was only about half full, so this was easy for them."
Cons: "The in-flight entertainment had an annoying habit of pausing frequently to buffer the movie. I tried to pause it purposely to gain buffer, but to no avail. Because of this, I was unable to watch the entire film. I chose the length to be well below the flight time, so the lack of closure was annoying. There are not enough chocolate choices in the snack menu."
Cons: "I understand aircraft safety is paramount, but 2 hour delay also meant we missed dinner reservation at destination on Mother's Day"
Pros: "After I boarded the plane I discovered my seat had been assigned to another passenger as well as myself! A bit unnerving but nicely solved by an upgrade to business class!"
Pros: "Very good"
Pros: "Boarding and crew were good"
Cons: "No comfort at all. Plane was jam packed and I had no leg room, arm rests would not come up, no free wifi or free entertainment."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats with no leg room."
Pros: "All the new amenities on united airlines are great the new seats are much more comfortable and have better leg room"
Cons: "No security for the wifi, I work In Silicon Valley and the soft security could be an issue but then again all the airlines lack passwords."
Pros: "easy boarding, helpful united employees"
Pros: "All went smoothly this trip"
Cons: "The ability to standby for earlier flights with no added fee"
Pros: "First class it was owsome"
Pros: "Employees need to understand that many people who don't fly often have an anxiety about the whole process. Being friendly and helpful goes a long way in making the experience less of a hassle. United seems to understand this and for the most part their employees were very friendly and helpful. I will choose united whenever possible."
Cons: "TSA employees need to lighten up. I think they can still do their job and be friendly at the same time. They all seem to hate their jobs"
Pros: "Though the airplane arrived late for boarding (due to inclement weather and air-traffic), the airline worked fast to make sure that the plane was clean and ready to board. The hostesses were very kind and helpful."
Cons: "There were no gluten-free options for snacks. There was no entertainment, which isn't really a problem for shorter flights."
Pros: "Flight delayed for a short time, explanation given- satisfying. Delayed flight info sent via text very helpful. Flight attendants and staff, very attentive, courteous, professional and informational. Over all satisfied with United airlines, thank you for my sucressful trip to Kansas City to celebrate my grandfathers 90th birthday!"
Cons: "Waited at the kiosk at the gate desk, took about 20 minutes for an agent to appear and help with customer service."
Pros: "Quick flight."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for 40 minutes because of "paperwork" according to the pilot. We boarded the plane on time however had to sit on it during the delay. We were not informed of what was going on until we had already been waiting for 30 minutes. When they informed us of the delay they offered everyone free direct TV in flight to make up for the delay. Once we finally took off they announced that the direct TV was not actually working. The flight attendant making the announcements was not sincere and rather unprofessional. Luckily the pilot flew fast so we ended up arriving only 10 minutes late."
Cons: "Long boarding and delayed flight, lots of walking"
Pros: "The crew was awsome"
Cons: "my first flight was delayed so when I landed I had to run to the terminal to see if I can Catch my second flight I was worried my whole flight because I thought that I was going to miss the second flight and that my vacation was going to be delayed. Luckily they had not taken off and I think that they waited for us thank God and the crew"
Cons: "We have to pay for food on a 2 hour flight? Just snacks, no meal even though it was dinner time. The stewardess doing announcements was obnoxious. She had an odd way of speaking with strange pauses, she kept calling it Kansas instead of Kansas City, and she made condescending remarks about it."
Cons: "It was a small, commuter plane and everyone was to gate check any carry-on that wouldn't fit under the seat, like rolling bag. My neighbor did not check his and took up more than half of my leg room. He was NOT friendly and I was not willing to anger him by complaining. But he should not have been allowed to bring it on board. This was a United flight, not Lufthansa."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by over 4 hours, there was no clarity on what was going on. They made us change aircrafts, the ground staff was mean at best. In spite of the 4 hour wait they didn't even bother serving food or made any announcement to handle passenger anxiety and concerns. Delays are sometimes unavoidable and I have had experiences in the past but none that was handled this unprofessionally"
Pros: "The seats were very comfortable. I was in the last row and was lulled to sleep by the engines."
Cons: "I had to check my second bag because they had no room for it in the bins. It turned out to be a blessing in disguise because I got to take it for no charge, and didn't have to lug it through the sirport."
Pros: "It was a routine cross country flight! Smooth boarding, deplaning and good service from the Crew."
Pros: "I made it to the airport safe and sound."
Cons: "It was a complete cluster as if no one knew what was going on. Once we were finally able to board we sat on the plane for an additional 30 minutes or so because the air conditioning went out on the plan and we all had to sit there in the scalding heat while they fixed it."
Pros: "Nothing to like"
Cons: "Did not like having my flight pushed back and back and back, to then be cancelled due to "air traffic control". Did not like my flight being rescheduled to 3 days later and that day being 4th of July. Did not like buying another flight for $300 so I could get to where I was going."
Pros: "The service"
Cons: "The they need more people espeak spanish"
Cons: "When I boarded the plane, I noticed crumbs and grease marks on my seat and crackers all over the floor at my feet. Rather than clean my area, the stewardess handed me wet wipes."
Cons: "We were delayed, no big deal. Then we got on the plane and set there on a hot plane for over 30 minutes waiting."
Pros: "Delayed in Denver"
Pros: "It's was quick."
Cons: "Delayed a bit but mostly ok."
Pros: "The professional services"
Cons: "Cramped leg space"
Pros: "Good flight attendants"
Cons: "Small seats"
Cons: "Didn't have a plane for us. Over 3 1/2 hour delay. Every time I fly this airline there is an issue with the flights."
Pros: "Went smoothly & on time"
Cons: "Didn't see any flying monkeys going over Kansas. They promised me flying monkeys..."
Cons: "At the boarding gate, there was really really mean crew operating the boarding. There was one guy on standby, was told to wait so he did but he didn't get the seat . I understand that could happen but how she spoke this guy was absolutely rude and she did say " that's not my fault! That's your fault!!" And slam the door ... When we asked her for adding miles , she did as complaining " I am here for the flight to Ommaha ." Even though she was not , she is working for United airlines , isn't it her job ??? She was like that to every customer and that presents your company's value ... When the gate was for us , she was back at the gate ...... I am so disappointed for this poor customer service. Even though if I mention here , I know nothing would change and I hope this one voice will reach to the company somehow and make some change ."
Pros: "Totally on time: excellent everything. This was a smooth flight both ways."
Cons: "After sitting for a 8 hour layover, the boarding gate was changed. The announcement of this change was poorly done, and we were not aware. Fortunately, I questioned why our flight was not announced and found this change. With less than 30 minutes until flight take off, we had to hurry to ...not only another gate, but a completely different terminal. I feel there should have been better informative announcements of this change."
Pros: "We had the best airline attendant I have ever encountered on any flight during my 50 years of flying. She was alone on the flight, yet she was attentive, efficient, cheerful and made the flight from Denver to Kansas City better than any other I have ever taken! She has a great attitude and it was obvious that she wanted all passengers to have a wonderful experience! I wish I had asked her name so that I could give her the recognition she deserves."
Cons: "Delayed flight out of Denver."
Pros: "I liked the leg room and assigned seating."
Cons: "More information on drinks during the flight and the charges for backpacks."
Pros: "All is great but the KC customs officers were rude and just hateful.."
Cons: "Customs officials"
Pros: "it was a good price"
Pros: "The flight time I originally booked."
Cons: "That they changed our flight to the day before what I had chosen and the Kayak app didn't update so we arrived at the airport to find out our flight had left the day before."
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above, but smoother landing"
Pros: "Comfort.. I purchased coach. Not first class. Food.. Did tried the food at all Entertainment.. My Ipad"
Cons: "I did not disliked nothing at all"
Pros: "Unchanged from previous flight"
Cons: "All good."
Pros: "Wonderful trip experience. Will certainly fly Frontier again."
Cons: "Seats are super uncomfortable they dont recline at all!! , A drink cost 2 dollars you have to pay 45 each way for a Carrry on!! Next time ill pay a little extra and atleast get to have a carry on reclining seats and a complementary drink ! it ends up costing the same but atleast ill be somewhat comfortable ! Never again will i fly Frontier its not worth it"
Pros: "- cheap flight"
Cons: "- having to pay for carry-on bag - having to pay for soda/juice and snacks on the flight (not having a complimentary option) - seats didn't recline"
Cons: "9 hour delay, uncomfortable seat/didn't recline. Crew was unhelpful and didn't give us straight info about delay. Sat on plane 3 hrs then had to get off. Reboarded 2 hrs later and still had to sit back on plane for 2 more hours before take off. Terrible experience."
Pros: "Not a damn thing. Never. Again."
Cons: "Fraudulent rates, inability to get on another flight in the face of hours of delay, terrible seats (uncomfortable), bullshit delays - every excuse in the book on one flight."
Pros: "Easy boarding and direct flight with smooth landing and take off."
Cons: "Extra costs to bring luggage ON the plane!"
Cons: "There was no tv."
Pros: "Priority check in for veterans. But will not be using this airline after this trip."
Cons: "There is a charge for a carry-on luggage fee of $45 so I paid the $40 fee to check my baggage in. Arrived 3 hours before flight. The flight was delayed for 2 hours. Get to the destination with no transfers and my luggage is the only piece that doesn't make it! The baggage claim attendant was all nonchalant and informed me every bag in their history has ALWAYS showed up in a few days. I'm traveling for a weekend business convention....so I had to repurchase clothing and items and possibly another suitcase fot the return trip. I will not be using this airline in the future."
Pros: "Was on time."
Cons: "No choice of entertainment."
Pros: "Safe takeoff and landing."
Cons: "Sour puss steward. Money suckers airline that charges too much for a carry on bag and charges you for an in flight soda."
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "I had to pay more money om my return flight for bags."
Cons: "I had to pay more money om my return flight for bags."
Pros: "cheap ticket, short flight"
Cons: "luggage, carry on policies, cheap seats and feel"
Pros: "Should have done my homework. I was shocked to find out that Frontier charges (and charges so much) for all luggage (even carry on) and drinks and snacks onboard. I can't think of any other carrier that does that. No wonder the tickets were so "cheap"! The trays were super tiny and almost impossible to use. We will pay the extra amount and fly any other carrier next time."
Pros: "Crew was efficient and friendly."
Cons: "The gentleman flight attendant was more difficult to understand over the speaker than the ladies."
Pros: "Got through security without a long wait, the staff were all very pleasant and the flight was on time and reasonably comfy."
Pros: "The flight"
Cons: "The 7 hours delay .....my travel delay was very frustrating ...not sure if I would fly Frontier a second time."
Pros: "5 hr delay..."
Pros: "I liked my fellow passengers."
Cons: "Flight was delayed. Flight, if it reached destination on time or early, usually waited on the tarmac for a gate assignment which ultimately delayed the arrival time. Flight crew was rude. Extra fees that were charged for seat assignments and checked or carry on bags were not clearly indicated at the time of ticket purchase and this felt like cheating to me. I will endeavor to never fly Frontier as I do not agree with their business practices."
Pros: "The initial price was really cheap."
Cons: "They charge 30 for carry-on bag each way. I had to pay extra 60 for round trip. If you plan to travel with carry on bag frontier is not for you. The airplane it self was clean and pretty new but little space and was very shaky some time to time. Didn't feel safe at all. I will never take frontier again."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and the plane was clean."
Cons: "'Only Pay for what you Need!' This is the slogan where all the hidden fees lie. But what do you really need? A carry-on? Who doesn't need that? Well It's gonna be $60. A cold glass of water to hydrate during a 3 hour flight? $6. Oh yeah if you want a seat on the plane you already paid for, it's going to be $16-50. frontier ends up costing more than its competitors even after cutting every luxury on the plane to save its customers money. (Seats do not recline and no TVs). I think I'm seeing a trend in the reviews, Frontier. Stop being dumb. I will never fly with them again."
Pros: "Plane departure was on time and arrived early for a change."
Cons: "Frontier now charges for any snacks including a can of soda."
Pros: "Arrived early!!"
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "Cramped seating was really uncomfortable. Charging for seat assignment and carry on bags was not clear at the te I booked. Not a nice surprise. I will avoid Frontier in the future."
Cons: "When I arrived at the Frontier desk and checked in I let them know that I was disabled and was not able to make the walk to the departure gate. They did nothing to assist me and finally after 40 minutes an airport employee that witnessed this borrowed a wheelchair from Delta and got me to my flight. I was embarrassed and shamed by this airline. Andrew Darden"
Pros: "Direct flight."
Cons: "When I went to check in for my super cheap flight suddenly I had to pay to pick a seat! I've come to expect to pay to check a bag but this was such a lie to pay for the flight and then have to pay to have a seat. Did I buy a standing room only?"
Pros: "I had seats to myself!"
Cons: "Didn't like how u have to pay for refreshments alcohol I understand but like soda and all"
Pros: "All of the crew was very pleasant and professional. Boarding was relatively easy and quick."
Cons: "The seats are like sitting on hard bicycle seats - uncomfortable and cramped. Couldn't believe we had to pay for carry-on and beverages and snacks. With all the added costs, it would have been cheaper to take a different airline."
Pros: "The crew was awesome."
Cons: "They charged for everything but the bathroom."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled due to weather. Not your fault obviously, tried to rebook for an earlier flight before severe weather came in, and it seems you have no red eyes to KC from Denver. Shame. Wasn't able to leave town."
Pros: "The captain /co-captain was very pleasant"
Cons: "Seats hard and uncomfortable. Too crowded. Cost more money to get a reasonable seat. Ridiculous. Seats do not recline. Less room under seat for personal bag Armrest narrow and short. Tray is metal and hopefully no person/child will bump head or have their hot coffee fall ill during turbulence. Speaking of coffee asked but did not receive. Bags???!!! Yes I could wear all my clothes for a five day trip. TSA would be a bear. No fly"
Cons: "Wasn't aware that Frontier does not participate in TSA pre-check. My fault for not researching more, but I almost missed my flight. Also the crew on the plane could have been more informative about procedures."
Cons: "they claim to have good air fares just to get you in. once you purchase a ticket they milk you for every possible reason to get as much money as they possibly can. for example if you dont pay for carryon (yes you hear me they charge for carryon) at the time you check in. they will charge you twice as much at the gate ($60 dollars!!!!). their seats are incredibly uncomfortable and do not recline. the guy at the counter wanted to charge me $40 because my bag was one pound overweight. thats enough for me. I am not using frontier ever again."
Pros: "Comfortable seats with sufficient leg room."
Cons: "Very disorganized at airport in dealing with multiple delays. Overheard dealings with others stranded; granted some passengers lost their tempers but employees did the same and sometimes worse. I can't believe after a 3+ hour delay that they can not forget about costs of drinks and snacks to give passengers a small break."
Cons: "Oven an hour delay and sat for 20 minutes after boarding with no update as to why"
Pros: "Quick boarding."
Cons: "Nickel and dime for everything. It's a scam."
Pros: "it was great no issues"
Pros: "Flight was delayed by 30 minutes but the flight itself was Great!"
Cons: "30 minute delay boarding"
Cons: "If I would have know there would be a $40 per carry on bag I would have selected another airline. Any snacks or beverages other than water were also charged in flight. I guess I was pampered by Delta for a similar flight and didn't expect the up-charges from Frontier."
Pros: "Flight was quick and fine"
Cons: "Security line experience was ridiculously long that made several of us almost miss the flight. That added stress skewed my experience"
Pros: "Direct flight was awesome. From MCI to MCO"
Cons: "Could not recline the seat. Attendants were not that friendly."
