Cons: "No complaints"
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: "Alaska's crew are routinely friendly, warm, yet no-nonsense, and I love this about them. They worked hard to keep very tired early-morning passengers from rioting during a long delay. I also enjoyed seeing our flight attendant serving some serious unimpressed face to a woman who was being an entitled diva."
Cons: "Our pilot disappeared for our 6am flight (reassigned to another flight or something), leaving us waiting on the tarmac while another was still driving to the airport, apparently. When a whole flight of people has gotten up to get to the airport at 4am for a flight that early, this kind of logistical snafu is incredibly frustrating -- plus, most of us wouldn't choose a flight that early if we didn't have somewhere to be."
Pros: "USB & Ports for all chargers"
Cons: "Didn't get my seat assignment until after boarding because flight was overbooked"
Pros: "being on time, service."

Cons: "The rude passengers that are close minded to the fact that the airline does not do this on purpose."
Cons: "Delayed by 2 hours."
Pros: "The crew was GREAT! What else can I say?"
Cons: "That people could bring over 4 bags to the counter so they would not have to pay the $25 charge for baggage. (I have no idea how many they carried on.) Why do you allow them to create extra work and hassle for your attendants at the counter while I have to pay $25 x 2 (coming and going) because I didn't try and scam the system. Maybe TSA should set a limit on the number of packages/bags/etc. that people can carry through security. Just a thought."

I will always be choosing Alaska for my future travels."
Cons: "My kindle must be too outdated because it wouldn't allow me to download gogowifi so that my children could watch shows via the kindle. So that was kind of bummer, but other than that it was a great flight."

Cons: "I was fine with everything"

Pros: "I always have a great experience on Delta! Thank you"
Cons: "Very rude flight attendant - unnecessary attitude"
Pros: "the embraer 175 is VERY comfortable, despite being a smaller jet."

Cons: "horrible boarding management in SJC."
Pros: "Our stewardess in the economy cabin was probably one of the best we have ever encountered. She was very courteous and personable."
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: "Flight was delayed 45 minutes while sitting on runway"
Cons: "Wider seating"

Cons: "No outlet and waited idle for a long time before getting to get off plane also had to walk my bag back bc there was no overhead storage space in the bins which prevented me from getting off the plane sooner"
Cons: "The bathroom supplies were not replenished. In fact, the facial tissue was empty at beginning of flight. When the toilet paper ran out, I finally informed the attendant and they fixed everything. It seems that checking on that stuff was not part of their routine."
Pros: "Everything was on point"
Pros: "Early for arrival!! Love that!"
Cons: "no charging station"
Cons: "We had too little time to switch flights. We were stressed and had to run a lot in order to make it to required connecting flight"
Cons: "It took a while day to get our bags after they decided to put it on the next flight"
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."
Cons: "close it!"
Cons: "No pre boarding for family with kids"
Pros: "On time. Polite gate reps. Helpful crew. Smooth flight and on time."
Pros: "Long walk and less than an hour. Very difficult for senior. No assistan e available."

Pros: "We had a very pleasant staff!"
Cons: "Longer flights should have screens in the headrests"
Cons: "Bad as above"
Cons: "Going through immigration in Dallas is a disaster. The wait is eternal. None-US passengers seemed to get processed faster."

Cons: "The delay my fly canceling poor communication I miss my dates etc"
Cons: "2 different attendants spilled drinks all over me and my carry on"
Cons: "Never made it because first leg was canceled"
Pros: "Flight was canceled due to maintenance problem, American claimed rebooking was someone else's responsibility. I had to talk to 4 people before they rescheduled me for the next day. American's gates/terminals at LAX are also a pain--you never know if your flight will depart from the hinterlands of Tom Bradley terminal, or Terminal 4 or 6, which can mess you up with parking/security screening/scheduling. I will try to avoid flying American in the future. I didn't get any vouchers for the cancellation, either. BD"
Pros: "Great service. Lots of legroom"
Pros: "Was called ahead of time to e alerted to flight delay. But I'm still never flying American again due to the rudeness of the crew."
Cons: "We're asked at the gate to measure our luggage. We did, and while it fit, the material of the bag made it look bulky (but upon touch, it was clearly not a full bag). When we said that it fit; the woman literally just scoffed, said "no" rudely, and walked away. We were polite, so why the rudeness?!! Never again AA."
Cons: "Fewer people on the plane during Covid would have been nice"
Cons: "Out of the four frontier flights I’ve taken in the past six months each one has been delayed for some reason. First one was over an hour late and caused a majority to miss connecting flights. Today’s experience was not a whole lot different. First leg of the trip was behind schedule, second was delayed at the terminal for the “cleaning” of the aircraft. I will walk to my destination before ever flying with frontier again"
Cons: "It’d be nice to have internet access, whether free or for purchase"
Pros: "I arrived."
Cons: "It was an hour after boarding before take off. Another 15 minutes on the ground after landing waiting for a gate at midnight on a weekday. I understand that circumstances occur beyond the airlines control, but this has been routinely occurring on my trips with Frontier. Absent compelling reasons, I will not be flying with them again."
Pros: "Getting to Seattle to get away from the airline"
Pros: "couldn't change my reservation even though I made it less than 24 hours"
Cons: "The service"
Pros: "They still pick up trash!!"
Cons: "New airbus has even LESS room!! Have to manhandle your personal bag out of the even smaller space under the seat! A soda is $3! There is Nothing to read anymore and the crew are overwhelmed with cranky people... making them cranky."
Cons: "Flight cast was reasonable, but baggage and carry on fees was DOUBLE the flight fair. Go figure?"
Pros: "The same"
Cons: "Too many fees"
Pros: "As above."
Cons: "As above"
Pros: "I was last on and only the 1st class was open so free upgrade"
Cons: "No complimentary snacks"
Pros: "fare was good"
Cons: "the seat was terrible"
Pros: "* Good leg room at my seat * Though the check-in line was very long, the curbside check-in attendant was courteous, professional, and very efficient."
Cons: "* Long line for check in * Flight 137 from Denver to Seattle was almost two hours late * seats on airplane don't recline and there is not an adjustable headrest to hold my head in place * The flight attendant wouldn't let me put my paid-for carry-on luggage in the overhead bin above our seats (we were sitting in row 2, seats A,B, C). She said they were reserved for row 1. So I had to place our paid-for carry-on baggage in the overhead bins above row 4. * no movie or even reading material at my seat * No complimentary snack or beverage (only available for purchase). Are you kidding me? I paid extra money for carryons and check-in baggage for all three of us, and my experience on Frontier made me feel like a second class citizen. I doubt I will ever fly with Frontier again."
Cons: "Frontiers prices might look good upon booking but you are charged for everything. $45 extra for a carry-on, $2.95 for a can of soda, etc... cramped seating,"
Pros: "Ticket price"
Cons: "Add on price for everything... carry on by itself $40!! Ridiculous A fee is acceptable, but too high of a fee is ridiculous"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and accommodating but we waited 3+ hours for a pilot that never showed"
Cons: "Crew was friendly and accommodating but we waited 3+ hours for a pilot that never showed"
Pros: "same as above"
Cons: "same as above"
Pros: "Staff was awesome and efficient"
Cons: "Food options, especially since one has to purchase snacks."
Pros: "Staff was friendly."
Cons: "No food or entertainment and nickle and dimed on everything."
Cons: "From the time my flight sat at the gate for 30 minutes saying that had to load last minute bags, to getting no water to drink for 3 hours, to uncomfortable seats that do not push back, and now no bags after 36 hours after paying a $40.00 fee, with no way to communicate with the airlines for a status, this will be the last Frontier flight for me, regardless of the pricing."
Cons: "I felt taken advantage of by the surcharges."
Pros: "Cheap prices"
Cons: "Being stalled on the tarmac for over an hour arriving to Denver. People missing connecting flights. Plane arriving late leaving from Denver to Seattle. No complimentary beverages."
Pros: "speed on check in, age and competent attitude of stewards(esses), clean passenger area."
Pros: "See above."
Cons: "Charge for carry-on bags. Charge for seats. Nickel and dime website trying to upsell you on every screen. Seats don't recline, uncomfortable."
Cons: "Charging for carry ins makes me never want to fly frontier again"
Cons: "Trip had over 8 hours of delays."
Pros: "I DO NOT KNOW WHAT IS GOOD"
Cons: "Very very poor service"
Pros: "Cheap ticket"
Cons: "I felt nickle and dimes for everything"
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "The seats don't recline, the boarding passes didn't scan anywhere we tried to scan into."
Pros: "The announcement (although I didn't take them up on it) to offer two domestic round trips if I'd sign up for one of their Mastercards. It's probably not a bad deal for someone who likes to have lots of credit cards and doesn't mind annual fees, I'm just not one of those people."
Cons: "My inability to access their e-mail offers to set things up ahead of time and at lower costs than paying them at the airport check-in, above and beyond the baggage charges themselves (Seventy bucks), especially for my carry on ... COME ON! I've become used to Southwest's far more enlightened policies, which I obviously prefer. Since it also has flights between Seattle and Denver, I'll look much more closely at staying with them the next time I make this trip."
Pros: "Airbus jet was nice. Frontier credit card sign-up was offered."
Cons: "The fees for seat assignments and carry on luggage. Frontier also does not accept TSA Pre-check."
Pros: "speedy, safe, and friendly"
Cons: "no complimentary drink or snack. seats where uncomfortable"
Cons: "delays with NO feedback"
Cons: "They nickle and dime you to death. They even charge you for soda!"
Pros: "Nothing, never use them again EVER"
Cons: "NOTHING0 ZILCH"
Pros: "Letting me in though I got a bit late to the gate, due to unexpectedly log TSA lined"
Cons: "Paying for seat AND baggage is reason to fly Southwest."
Pros: "same as above"
Cons: "same as above"
Pros: "See cooment above"
Cons: "See comments above"
Cons: "My name was not correct on return email documents. When I tried to correct on-line, the program asked for another $139. When I phoned the number listed, I had a gentleman whose English was very hard to understand. He ended up telling me not to worry about the error-it would not cause a problem. I ended up phoning a 2nd time, to another person to assure that nothing would go wrong at boarding time."
Pros: ".It was a very confortable flight and right on time.."
Cons: "Finding that getting a seat costs extra"
Cons: "My mother did not get one of her bag back when we arrived in Seattle"
