JetBlue doesn’t inform their passengers of why the flight is delayed. If you land it and don’t get out of the plane yet they don’t tell you what you are still sanding in the plane. JerBlue doesn’t keep their passenger inform of anything. They really should be thankful that they are still in business and is that is to all their customers but they don’t value that at all.
I liked how fast the trip was. The cheese ITs we got where stale
Having to pay $35 to check my small suitcase that could have fit in the overhead compartment. Poor communication with baggage claim carousel pickup. Upon arrival, the same baggage claim carousel (marked “United”) was used for multiple flights, causing over crowding (COVID concerns anyone?), and waiting too long to retrieve the bag.
I did not like the spontaneous stop in Puerto Rico. The flight staff was kind
Pros: "Honestly the only thing I can say that I liked was that we got back to Fort Lauderdale in less than two hours."
Cons: "Honestly the only thing I can say that I liked was that we got back to Fort Lauderdale in less than two hours. We were told to arrive at the airport for our flight which was delayed incase our flight left on time. our gate changed five different times. Our flight was supposed to leave from Puerto Rico to Ft. Lauderdale @ 1:30 p.m. the flight kept getting delayed . our flight did not take off until 7:30 that evening. Nobody informed us of anything what the delay was etc. it was handled horribly by Jet Blue staff. We were t offered vouchers nothing."
I don't recall hearing any boarding announcements, people just started getting in line. Flight attendants were nice. A bit chatty with each other but helpful enough during our tarmac delay. Plane ride was very comfortable.
Pros: "Everything it was ok. Travel on time."
Cons: "No complaint."
Cons: "Missed the connecting flight by about 15 minutes, strange that we get delayed for about an hour but the connecting flight can’t wait a few minutes. Currently en route to another airport to spend the night at the airport and then take an early morning flight to my home city. Would have been nice to get a hotel room. I also had trouble with being charged for a second checked bag when I only had a single checked bag, would be great if the customer service help desk could help with that at the airport."
Pros: "The crew in the plane was good and the fly was good."
Cons: "Boarding crew in front desk was not too friendly and could have used better words to communicate. Seen I was waiting for 20min before realizing that my gate was changed after check in. I approached the lady in the front desk to see if it was time to get my seats assigned. The lady in the front desk asked me in Spanish if I new English seen I was speaking Spanish to her I really don’t get why me knowing English had to do with me getting my seats. Also I went to gat 7 cuz that’s the gate I printed out 1hr before my fly but had to run to gate 3 cuz JetBlue changed gate seen 7am but couldn’t change it on the check in printouts/information (does that even make sense). Finally the answering service is a lottery you have to pray you get someone nice(and I hate to say this cuz I’m Puerto Rican but we can be so rude in customer service). You can tell from the accent a person has where they from and every time I get a Central American person they are so nice but when you get a Puerto Rican person they can be so rude and almost always you get nothing answer or done. This particular time before my flight I call to get my seat cuz when I flew to PR and almost always I call 24hr before my flight and get my seats assign free of charge. Not this time the customer rep answered and I tell her that I’m calling to get my seats and she answers you can do that when you check in, I tell her that I try but I’m being charged to get them and that in my previous flight the girl said to call 24hr before this flight and I could get them assigned free of charge (which was true cuz I had call for my fly going to PR and the girl also said it too) and the customer rep said well it probably cuz is not 24hr before yet. I told the rep yes it is I’m currently on my way to the airport but I want to get them before I get to the airport and the rep answers well you can do it when you get there (mind you I’ve been on hold waiting for almost 2hr that’s why I’m on my way to the airport cuz I usually do it 5-6hr before my flight but the answering service has been very busy) I tell her that I’m trying to save some time and get them before I get to the airport and the rep said well I can’t help you cuz we can’t give you seat on the phone you have to do it when you check in or wait until you get to the airport and they’ll give you your seats. It’s very frustrating that there’s people like this and they are from the same birthplace as you. So sad!"
Cons: "We had a 5 hours delay and crew didn’t have any information"
Cons: "flight was delayed"
Pros: "Crew was excellent The seats was very comfortable"
Cons: "Something has to be done with your entertainment system. Not only was it not working going out of Newark to Phoenix but also was not working on the return flight home. They tried to reboot it several times and it still didn’t work. You seen your advertising that you’re not going to be bored well it’s not true I was bored It made for a very unpleasant experience and I was very disappointed."
Pros: "Nice crew. Plenty of legroom"
Cons: "The time to get the luggage to baggage claim was way longer than expected."
Pros: "Seat comfort is better than many airlines but I still felt boxed in."
Cons: "Flight crew was mediocre at best. Very abrupt and snippy when offering drinks and snacks. Flight attendant who gave disembarking instructions had difficulty with language and stuttered and stumbled with words."
Pros: "Purchased even more space seats. Unfortunately so did a family with a screaming 2 year old. She screamed the entire flight. It was awful."
Cons: "Cancun airport was an unorganized mess. Purchased even more space seats and was assigned to board with group e instead of the usual group a."
Pros: "Mint is the best experience ever!"
Cons: "Hand sanitizers on plane"
Pros: "Flight was smooth"
Cons: "Newer plane with outlets to charge phones iPads etc"
Cons: "JetTV only had 3 movies and they ran on their schedule. Was not on demand"
Cons: "Syncing phone to flyfi entertainment"
Cons: "The delay was very long and won’t have been that bad except that the San Juan Jet Blue terminal is freezing cold."
Cons: "The TVs and WiFi weren’t working. That’s why i fly Jet Blue. Also the flight was very crowded."
Pros: "Very grateful for this airline. Staff with their due precautions. The seating area was clean, the food was light (but it is understood by the situation that we are going through Covid 19). All in order."
Cons: "I only found that they must be a little more rigorous with the rules of keeping distance when entering and leaving the plane."
Pros: "Some of the crew was decent others seemed annoyed they were doing their job."
Cons: "Some of the crew was decent others seemed annoyed they were doing their job. Two of the employees serving the cabin could use an attitude adjustment. The crew was late in getting food out but for a four hour flight there is no value in flying anymore. Airlines are just trying to rake in as much money as possible. When are they going to be responsible for everyone getting sick like cruise ships are? They should hand out masks and sanitizer because airlines are one of the dirtiest public spaces that there is! Show up late and barely clean the plane between its third or fourth leg of the day."
Cons: "Yes. Delay by 4 hours. I got the notification when I was at the airport."
Pros: "The seat and leg room"
Cons: "Better in flight entertainment and WiFi"
Pros: "Perfect take off and landing"
Cons: "Little chilly in the cabin."
Cons: "You get what you pay for"
Pros: "The space was very comfortable."
Pros: "The entire trip was comfortable I have no complaints"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "If there is a delay let it be known do not keep saying five min for over an hour. Also flight attendants were very upset to be working Christmas and my tv didn’t work. They also did not want to switch me to one of the three empty rows because they were upgraded seats that no one was occupying."
Pros: "Nice leg room."
Cons: "Both flights were delayed. Plus, for this flight, I sat in row 8 but had to put my bag in the overhead compartment in row 18!!! Huge hassle to get back to my seat boarding, and a long wait to get it to get off!!!"
Pros: "Great flight attendant especially the gentleman!!! Super helpful even with a bunch of cranky New Jerseyians on a delayed flight!"
Cons: "Too hot! AC was going on and off??"
Pros: "That we landed safely"
Cons: "Autistic child behind me without mom supervising her or sitting next to her . The child was about 11 but for some reason her mother was sitting on the isle next to her and wasn’t concerned about having that changed or helping her daughter have a better experience on the plane. The lil girl was screaming , she had a car that she rolled on my seat and the seat next to me for hrs. It’s not her fault, her mom didn’t do anything to help.. nothing .. Then the Crew was arguing and wasn’t happy at all .. Craig talks so fast on the intercome I couldn’t understand him .. Craig wasn’t happy with him having to do credit cards and wanted to do trash . Him and the crew from the back were arguing and I was in disbelief that not one crew member tried to help, talk to the mom or do anything about it .But they were involved in their own mess so they were not worried about the young lady screaming . I left that flight with a headache and no rest what so ever..i really wish the mom or someone would have said something.. absolutely awful flight .. awful I left there saying to the crew get me off of this plane pls .."
Pros: "As always customer service from flight attendants are awesome nothing but the best"
Pros: "fast boarding and no lines for baggage drop"
Cons: "delayed flight almost stayed up all night."
Pros: "The app on my phone allowed me to do nearly everything but place my luggage in the back"
Cons: "The TVs were not working and shutting off sporadically."
Pros: "Lead flight attendant was excellent! She provide really friendly/professional service to everyone I saw her serve. She brought a smile out of everyone."
Cons: "the seats were very uncomfortable and it smelled really bad"
Pros: "Only liked the price of the travel ticket."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed. Stewardess' were rude. The only reason we flew JetBlue was because of the price. Always flew JetBlue but recently very poor customer service."
Pros: "Comfort and ease of travel."
Pros: "I have never seen an airline get the bags off the plane and onto the baggage carousel as quickly as JetBlue did on my flight!"
Cons: "Wished they had sandwiches for sale. It was a noon flight arriving to EWR at 3. That is time to eat lunch."
Pros: "The flight was smooth and uneventful. The landing was expertly executed. No safety issues. The cabin was comfortable and quiet."
Cons: "Fat snacks The $25 charge for checking one piece of luggage. The rudeness at the airport when I asked for directions. I don't fly everyday, so why would you expect me to know where everything is and exactly how your process works? The emotional exchange at the airport when I checked my bag. I was the only person in line and there were two JB employees behind the counter who were more interested in their social conversation than in assisting me. I made a simple request for assistance and was immediately blown off. I can't complain enough about this."
Pros: "The cabin was clean and the crew was friendly."
Cons: "Better snacks. Chips or mini cheese platter"
Pros: "I had a safe flight and enjoyed the movies available to me."
Cons: "Better care of luggage and better customer service"
Pros: "Everything was great. Seats, service, flight, crew."
Cons: "Boarding crew not very friendly"
Pros: "Quick boarding process! Everything was on time as estimated."
Pros: "The entertainment"
Cons: "Departure times"
Pros: "Fast service and precise timing"
Pros: "The crew was amazing"
Cons: "Other travellers where rude"
Cons: "Just hate the super smaller seats and the reduced spaces everywhere"
Pros: "The crew was amazing, the seats were super comfortable, entertainment was great, lots of movies to choose from. Also they handed out a lot of great snacks"
Pros: "The crew was amazing. My seat was comfortable."
Cons: "The plane was delayed. It arrived over 25 minutes after it was originally scheduled to."
Cons: "Flight was delayed due to crew not being available."
Pros: "Clean plane. On time"
Pros: "While biased since I was in First class, everything was enjoyable and as expected of a first class experience. The free Wi-Fi on this flight made it extra special- can’t wait until its standard on all flights!!"
Cons: "Only real complaint is that Delta doesn’t seem to restrict size of bags taken as carry on and the time wasted but some trying to squeeze their obviously oversized bags into overhead compartments is painful."
Cons: "Passengers should have the option to ask for additional snacks."
Pros: "I missed my flight and you guys helped me catch the next one :D I was able to still make it yo my final destination within the same day"
Pros: "On flight entertainment was very good. Flight was smooth and ran ahead of schedule."
Cons: "They were out of vegetarian meal options. Really poor for a six hour flight. Also, the family behind us was atrocious, but that’s not Delta’s fault."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and graciously got the hot tea I wanted."
Cons: "Everything was good!"
Pros: "My flight from STX was delayed some 30 minutes. That made a dent in the 57 minutes I had to catch my Delta flight. Naturally we landed at gate A2 and Delta was boarding at Terminal 2 gate B9. Me with my knee replacement can’t run and my wheelchair was not in sight. Thank goodness I had a carryon with wheels. I was out of breath when I got to Delta and the last passengers were boarding. I started panicking and interrupted the ground steward who asked me to wait with a smile. I waited . So when I told them I was standby they waved me on after showing my passport. I couldn’t find my boarding pass. I was pleasantly surprised to get a seat in first class. I was so thankful. My first time. Good things come to those who wait! Thank you Delta."
Pros: "We had purchased economy tickets and got assigned seats that were not next to each other. As we were boarding the ticket person gave us a new seat assignment closer to the front and next to each other – we really appreciated and liked it. Makes me want to fly Delta again!"
Pros: "Being in First Class"
Cons: "Heavier food selection would be appreciated."
Cons: "Seats were a little tight."
Cons: "we began the boarding process late, which can be understandable, although the plane was there pretty early. Once the boarding began, someone, I presume the gate agent, essentially gave a countdown to hhow many minutes were left until the flight could have an "on time departure". I travel nearly every week so I value being on time. However, a minute by minute call to hurry up on a flight that was sold out was over the top. There was mumbling among the passengers, to the point of someone joking "Free cookies and water if we make it on time?" Just a bad gate experience, but bad enough that peopoe were commenting, and I waited for someone from the cockpit to del\part so I could mention it to them."
Pros: "Attentive and friendly crew, great entertainment system"
Cons: "Flight left late due to problem with cleaning crew, seats are uncomfortable, snacks were stale."
Pros: "Chairs was comfortable"
Cons: "I had a kid kicking my chair the whole flight."
Cons: "Friday when I supposed to depart at 7:21 am my flight was delayed to 6:00 pm and yesterday when I supposed to depart from New York at 7:21 pm my flight was delayed until 11:20 pm was horrible! I never again i would took Delta because I call a day before my departure to see if they would help me changing my flight by morning and they couldn’t they told me that i have to pay $300 dollars."
Pros: "Snacks and drinks were yummy and very appreciated. Entertainment was great. Tons of shows and movies and all for free. There was also free iMessage only WiFi which was enjoyed while messaging friends and loved ones while in the air."
Cons: "For the amount of passengers boarding, they started the boarding process way too late which resulting in a delay taking off. The entire boarding process felt sloppy, disorganized, and hectic. They allowed passengers to board that were seated at the end of the plane while some 1 was boarding, causing tons of congestion. The boarding process was the slowest I have ever experienced in all the flights I’ve been on. The crew was ok, but slightly snappy/rude like typical New Yorkers. The flight from ft. Lauderdale to New York was much more pleasant."
Cons: "The bulkhead sears had no electrical outlet"
Pros: "Early arrival!"
Cons: "Didn’t know that I didn’t have a window on the row I was on"
Cons: "When the passenger in front reclines their seat it was in my face The legroom wasn’t terrible but I had a hard time even reading since it was so close"
Cons: "The two hour delay"
Cons: "I was not aware, when I picked my seat, that we were ahead of the Emergency Exit. My seat was extremely uncomfortable."
Pros: "Everything. I really loved that I could track where my checked luggage was, so when I arrived to my final destination I knew my bag was going to be there. The individual TV for my seat, so I could watch what I wanted. Having an USB port to charge my devices."
Cons: "Liked everything."
Pros: "No hubo retraso y salió todo el vuelo a tiempo. El personal fue atento."
Cons: "El espacio entre asientos es mínimo y es súper incómodo. La experiencia fue de incomodidad."
Cons: "I don't know why delta's service has deteriorated so much in the last few years. Last two times that I flew the service and attitude at the gate has been horrible. Seat assignment has become a dread. Upgrade options are over priced. I guess I will be looking for a new airline."
Pros: "New Plane - super roomy great selections of movies to watch for free on the TV!"
Pros: "Delta Comfort seats"
Cons: "Delta employee who drive shuttle to connection stopped to drop off a passenger and proceed to chat w other workers thereby getting me to my gate late and missing my connection and getting me to Florida almost 3 hours later than planned. Agents at desk in JFK were rude. There was another Delta employee also on the shuttle who was the only one who seemed to show concern. He alerted the driver, called the boarding gate and led me to it."
Cons: "Out of all the airlines I have flown, this was quite disorganized in my opinion. The fact that I was not able to select a seat, nor did I have one assigned to me until prior to an hour before boarding, gave me a bit of anxiety. I don't think it's fair to take away this option to those that get the "cheap, standard" tickets."
Cons: "Completely threw our afternoon plans and next day on their head because of the flight delays. Not cool."
Cons: "Flying from Sydney Australia and this being the final segment, Delta lost my luggage with no explanation as to why. It made it around the world only to get lost on the shortest segment. A real pain after 21 hours of flying to be delayed late at night by airline. No offer for compensation."
Pros: "The plane was surprisingly comfortable. The seats had USB ports. The touch screens were clear and responsive. Most importantly, the service of the flight attendants was excellent. I was quite happy."
Pros: "The new plane was great. TV's on each seat back w/ great entertainment options"
Cons: "Flight was scheduled to leave early, the plane arrived, but they couldn't turn the plane around fast enough. We left the gat late, then pilot said we would still be arriving half an hour early. We arrived about 45 minutes late, and that was a problem because our connecting flight was due to depart now in 15 minutes. Lightning forced the airport to shutdown, which was great, we had a chance to catch our flight, but we were stuck in the airplane, and we couldn't get to our gate until the all-clear. I know this is not Delta's fault, but they did arrive quite late on a flight that, according to them, would be early. They also never communicated to the other flight that there were several passengers catching that connection. So by the time we had ran to catch our connection they had closed the ramp. Lightning hit again, and they shutdown the airport once again, so the airplane was still at the gate for about an hour, and they did not allow the 20+ passengers to board that plane, which was right there. So frustrating. The only thing that saved it was that our new flight was the new airbus, and although it left an hour and a half later, the comfort level was phenomenal."
Pros: "Really surprised to see that Deltas new 737's had free in seat entertainment."
Cons: "Boarding was a little awkward."
Pros: "The onboard entertainment system was awesome.seats were comfortable."
Cons: "Flight was a bit bumpy."
Pros: "flight itself was fine"
Cons: "When we arrived in LGA, the luggage conveyor belt was broken and luggage was piled up and driven to another terminal. As a result half of our luggage did not arrive on our flight but arrived on subsequent flight. However, one bag was nowhere to be found and Delta staff could not clarify the issue. They did find it next day and delivered to the FLL airport, but we had to get a cab and go to the airport to pick-up as we could not take a chance of it not making it to us before the cruise departure. I am extremely disappointed"
Check in was horrible in Miami. The woman was rude and not helpful with the questions. There was nothing to like at the check in and there were really slow even for First class passenger like me.
Pros: "Crew was fine, outlets were nice"
Cons: "It should be a crime to have a fully packed plane in the middle of covid. It’s also illogical to not serve food but allow people to bring food on, doesn’t make it more covid safe. I will avoid American Airlines in the future."
Pros: "Fast transportation"
Cons: "It could be better if the pandemic was over, I think everything could be better."
Pros: "I managed to slip ahead a couple of rows into what I guess was a slightly upgraded seating area. This resulted in my flight being very nice. But had I not been able to pull off this minor theft, I think it would have been miserable. Sitting up straight, without the seat ahead of me reclined, my knees touched the back fo the seat in front of me. It felt like I was sitting at a table in a kindergarten classroom, not a chair meant for an adult. In the upgraded seat I was very comfortable. Staff on board was friendly and helpful throughout the flight."
Cons: "I haven't flown American Airlines in quite a while and one gets quite spoiled flying on Emirates or Qatar or Singapore or Norwegian or whatever other airlines. It's easy to forget how utterly mediocre AA is. The food isn't great, the air quality on the flight is terrible and leaves you feeling oily. They don't air-condition the plane until after everyone is boarded so the whole process is hot, sweaty, and unpleasant. Many of the staff are flat out rude to people (I was never on the receiving end, but I overheard what I considered very abrasive tones to others). And so on. Ideally I'd fly on other airlines I think."
Pros: "The boarding process and its ease"
Cons: "The Wi-Fi was not free and quite expensive. The space between seats was too narrow for my legs resulting in an uncomfortable journey. The entertainment was dated and not varied enough. The food was borderline unsavoury. The wines were cheap... Not an airline I would recommend to anyone."
Pros: "Nothing!!! This was a horrible flight experience!!! I will never use American Arilines again especially their Barcelona connections."
Cons: "I would never use American Airlines again. Horrible service at the check-in service at Barcelona Airport. I travel around the world for work and each year I fly to more than 12 international locations but never had a horrible experience like this. My carry-on bag is 21” carry-on bag that I traveled in more than 20 countries for the past 3 years but American Airlines staff members at the check insisted that my carry-on bag does not fit the FAA regulations and they threatened me multiple times when I protested their attitudes. I am an avid traveler and I know my rights as a traveler but the American Airlines staff members were extremely rude and insisted that I have to check-in my carry-on bag. The real issue was that regardless of the size of the carry-on bags, they were forcing almost all passengers to heck-in their carry-on bags a clear indication of money-making scheme. When I protested their attitude, they threatened me saying that I pose a security risk and that they would not check me in but I stabbed my grounded insinuated that my bag fits the FAA regulations. I booked this flight from Bristish Airways and this was a code shared flight, I called British Airways in December 22nd and confirmed the measurements of my carry-on bag but when I told American Airlines about the Bristish Airways, they told me “they don’t care, this American Airlines not British Airways”. It was humiliating, it was disrespectful, and it was unacceptable!!!! At the end, I removed one sweater from carry-on and the issue was resolved but after this experience, I will never never fly with American Airlines and never recommend anyone to use American Arilines especially their Barcelona flights and connections."
Pros: "The flagship first seats in American Airlines are among the best in class given that I only flew from Miami to JFK. Fully flat beds and ample room."
Cons: "Very limited food options."
Pros: "Chocolate ice cream and pot pies"
Cons: "To start, I had paid extra to upgrade to a seat with more leg room only to find I had been reassigned to the back of the plane. This was after I had already done an online check-in for the appropriate seat. Then I was told by the AA agent at the desk that my upgrade was in the system but that it was “fake”. Apparently the money I paid two months before was no good on this flight. I was traveling with my boyfriend and they would not allow us at the same counter because we were not married. After much haggling we were finally able to rectify the situation. Horrible start. Then, once on the plane, the in- flight entertainment system as well as the lights broke right before take off so there was nothing to watch or see for an almost 8 hour flight."
Pros: "Arrived ahead of the scheduled time"
Cons: "Plane was less than half full yet the crew appeared pressured .... one crew member didn’t wait for me to complete my request and she brought me eat phones yet I wanted to ask for water to drink! Seats don’t recline much ...."
Pros: "Relatively comfortable plane, great movies (I watched four!), good timing between meals/snacks."
Cons: "These planes are always SO cramped. We paid to be in the section with 9 seats across instead of 10 which was worth it but wish that they would just give everyone slightly more space - seems humane for such long flights! The group boarding on these huge planes always seems chaotic. Also it seems like it would honestly make more sense to start at the back and move forward. Would have less waiting for people in front of you to get settled. Wish the last snack had a piece of fruit or something with a bit more healthy aspect."
Pros: "This plane is much better than the American Airlines plane I usually get stuck with on my 8 hour direct flight from JFK to MXP. Please stop using the Boeing 767 jets and only use the Boeing 777 for flights across the Atlantic. I would like to fly American more frequently but not if I think I'm going to get stuck with the planes from the 1980s where there's no personal TV, no place to plug in my phone or electronics to charge unless you carry around a car charger, which I definitely don't, and there's no WiFi on those planes either."
Cons: "Boeing 767 Jets! The food is blah - Delta and Emirates is better. The entertainment needs a bit of an update. Or maybe I just fly too often..."
Pros: "Flight crew was nice"
Cons: "Checking in, the counter agent first told us we would need a visa to go to the USA. We are American citizens. Then she insisted that we buy checked bag allowance even though our tickets already included checked bags. We had already flown the 1st leg with checked baggage, why would we purchase tickets with no baggage allowance coming home?! The stroller we gate checked was left at the end of the oversized baggage carousel because of the ground crew not wanting to unload gate checked items. I will never EVER fly an AA codeshare flight."
Pros: "Asked a stewardess to turn the heat up and she did."
Cons: "Freezing cold air conditioning. Every person I could see was wrapped up in their blanket before we had even taken off."
Cons: "Food and drinks could be better"
Pros: "Crew very friendly couldn't be more helpful. Food snacks and drinks good. Very efficient boarding system the best I've encountered."
Cons: "Roof mounted tvs a bit disappointing and the films were just repeated. Coffee needs coffee in the cup, it was just milk and water no taste of coffee."
Pros: "Good space in premium"
Cons: "Female cabin crew were aggressive, discourteous and frankly rude to the passengers when they had to verbally communicate. I hear this so often with American cabin crew. When I started to experience this I became aware of the same trend in regard communications with other passengers. Very unattractive."
Pros: "The overall service x"
Pros: "Very nice and genuinely friendly flight attendants and ground personnel. Flight arrived early, perfect landing and take off."
Cons: "Kayak/webjet sent me the wrong check in code for the wrong airline operating my flight. I inserted it on the online form multiple times until I was blocked from doing so, and there was no link to communicate online in real time with anyone who could solve the problem. This was extremely stressful and unnecessary, as well as time consuming. It was not how I wanted to spend my final night in Italy. Furthermore, I had to wake up at 4 am to get a very early bus to the airport in order to check in early enough in person. NOT cool. The food was mediocre. The entertainment options were about the worst I've ever seen. My seat hardly went back at all."
Pros: "Due to a strong tailwind we arrived 45 minutes ahead of schedule. Great service with attentive attendants. However the plane was older than me, no real entertainment system or outlets to plug in smart devices."
Cons: "Plane needs to be retired or retrofitted to accommodate smart device charging."
Pros: "Entertainment was good"
Cons: "Flight was late, seats was small, all time something smelled so much."
Cons: "I hate American airlines. It is the WORST. We were held for almost 4 hours waiting for "maintenance call" then flight was cancelled. THEN it took two full hours to get back checked bags. By ths point it was 5 pm, had been at airport since 8:30 -- no food offered, no apologies, not even a glass of water. Of course, no flights back to US so I was stuck an extra day, completely messed up school and work. I THOUGHT I was booking with Iberia but it was a code share. I WILL NEVER fly American Airlines again!"
Cons: "More than a 2 hour delay in Madrid for American Airlines to replace the seat harness on the Co-pilot's chair. This seems like an evolution that should never delay a flight if the proper preventive maintenance had been performed. Very little info was given and there did not seem to be any concern by the pilot or flight attendants once the flight was boarded due to the delay. I was very relieved, however, when we arrived at JFK and AA had a point of contact helping folks with close flights. We originally had 3.5 hours to make our connection to BWI, but due to the delay, had less than an hour to go thru Passport control, rescreening and entry to the terminal, but we made it. Thank you for the personal representative. I did not get her name, but she was very, very helpful."
Pros: "Not very much positive to say unfortunately. The staff were good and did as much as they could to keep up feed and happy."
Cons: "The plane was extremely old and dated. Never been on such an old plane with no up to date equipment or facilities. The chairs were very uncomfortable and the food was awful. There was no personal entertainment screen for an 11 hour flight and only one of the safety demonstration screens was working during take off. Also no plugs at all."
Pros: "They offered pretty decent food and snack options that were included in the flight- the high quality chocolate ice cream was an especially nice touch as well as the included wine. My seat appeared to have more space than the flight previous to it, so that added a lot more comfort without the extra expense of having to pay for the "more space" seating- I often feel like airlines nickel and dime you to death these days. Perhaps it was just the luck of the draw, but the seats had much more legroom than my first flight to Paris as opposed to the return to NY. The flight crew were all courteous and pleasant. Leather seating with readily available pillows and blankets for all was a nice touch as well."
Cons: "Having to use communal screens for watching movies and shows, having no choice as to what was displayed, having trouble seeing everything displayed (too far and small to see nuance in dark scenes and print on screen), having only one bathroom mid plane."
Cons: "Trying to make any changes to the booking or check in was horrible. Because this was booked through kayak, then through an agent, then ultimately an Iberia booking on a British Airways / American flight, it took about 5 rounds of phonecalls being passed to another company or another department to get anything done. Sure the flight was cheap, but 6 hours of phone calls to get anything done is unacceptable. The plane used for this flight is ancient. Very tired seating, and no seatback entertainment. One children's film shown on the central TV screen followed by old sitcoms....For a transatlintic flight, this is really poor."
Pros: "The movie selection was good, although it was in Italian. The drink selection was good. Thanks for the pillow and blanket."
Cons: "I began flying when airline attendants were called airline stewardesses. Their personality plus attitudes and attention to detail reflected on the overall image of the airline, and did not make me feel like a second rate citizen in a second class seat. I've noticed over the last decade-plus that this has changed. I've been rudely spoken to for reaching for a napkin off the cart as I was not given one with my drink. My elbow was hit by the cart as it moved from back to front of isle, and no apology followed. The garbage was collected moving back to front, so I had to get the attention of the attendant after she flew by me. I thoroughly researched the size of the suitcase required prior to flying, and bought a new one to meet the requirements. My suitcase did not fit on American Airlines. Why am I bringing up American Airline? When getting to the airport in Milan, Italy, 2 1/2 hours prior to flight departure, I approached the British Airway counter. As no one was there, I proceeded to believe I was too early, so I had breakfast. I again approached the British Airway counter and still no one was there. On my way to the bathroom, I found the flight board and followed the directions. I searched for British airlines at the gate I was directed to, but was unable to find it. I asked an attendant, and I was directed to the American Airline gate. It was very confusing. It would have been nice if there was a sign at the British Airways counter directing its customers to American Airlines."
Pros: "I was surprised by the amount of room in the economy cabin."
Cons: "Check in very slow! The computers used for passenger self check in didn't work well. It took 6 attempts to read my passport, it never did read my green card, wouldn't accept my frequent flyer number. Other passengers were similarly frustrated. The attendant couldn't have been less helpful. I joined a line to check in with a counter clerk. The counter positions were seriously understaffed. The clerks seemed to be working quite slowly and were quite unconcerned about the growing line. I'm glad I checked in early for my flight!"
Pros: "That I arrived at my destination"
Pros: "THis was an ok flight. Everything was on time and the crew was hreat. On the other hand, the food was terrible and the check in process was not expedite at all. The American Airlines crew did not know how to handle my G4 visa while checking in and they neglected to mark my bag with the orange ribbon signaling platinum status in American. This is key to getting your luggae faster in baggage claim when you have a short connection (I had less than two hours). This omission caused my suitcase to arrive last, and I had to run to make it to my next flight."
Cons: "States above"
Pros: "Boarding was quick."
Cons: "1. No individual monitors. The pull down shared monitors are antiquated and not the standard now. 2. Would not fly AA from SJU again because of this. Unless I preloaded my iPad with movies."
Pros: "The meals were excellent -- well timed distribution of food throughout the flight. Attentive staff. Good choices for meals and beverages. I liked the fact that we got ice cream halfway through the flight also, that's not a very common thing! Entertainment system was very good -- lots of choices of things to watch/listen to! I was pleased to find that there were movies available that had been very recently released that I had been wanting to see!"
Cons: "Comfort was okay, my seat was on the end of a row with three seats (aisle side) and immediately behind me was a row with only two seats. Without fail, the flight attendants bumped their carts into my chair EVERY time they passed. If I had been trying to sleep, this would be much more of a disturbance to me. Seeing as I was just watching movies and enjoying the food, it wasn't that much of an issue. However, I think it would be easy for the flight attendants to just take a second longer to try to navigate around the chair and not bump it every time. Little things like that go a long way, especially on a long flight."
Pros: "nothing. seriously I have NOTHING good to say about this trip"
Cons: "We boarded or flight just a few minutes late initially then had to taxi back to the gate to fix AC(?!) electrical issues, which were seemingly fixed just as we started to de-plane. Then after a slew of nonsense announcements about waiting for a new pilot, redirecting the destination, and basically misinformation about reboarding, we are told that the flight MIGHT be canceled; It has been nothing but one excuse after another and honestly after a 4 hour delay with no real answers, I really cannot find any reason to fly this airline ever again. Such poor service."
Cons: "When I booked the flight, I hadn't realized that British Airlways had contracted the flight out to be operated by American Airlines. The flight was delayed in Paris and I ended up missing my connecting flight through JFK to DC. Though we were told on the plane that we would be given assistance upon landing and helped in an expedited manner through customs, instead I was briefly informed I had missed my connecting flight, handed an envelope, and told I needed to now travel to Laguardia Airport. No other information or assistance was provided. I was not given a reason why I needed to travel an hour in NYC traffic to switch airports nor was I given any help through customs. The shuttle I was told to take was unable to take me to the correct terminal, so I needed to get on a secondary shuttle. Again, after a 7 hour international flight, little assistance or aid was provided. I was barely able to make it through security in time to catch the new flight. Additionally, the actual flight from Paris to JFK lacked basic in-flight entertainment that almost any international flight would have. I will not be traveling on American Airlines again, and I am hopeful that Kayak and BA will be more clear in the future."
Pros: "It got me home in one piece."
Cons: "The flight was delayed after some passengers began boarding. The boarding process was also all over the place. When i finally got on the plane, the seats were very uncomfortable and I felt like a sardine being crammed into a small tin. the crew was at best, mediocre and boring. The in flight snack was two crappy pieces of cookie? Or was that a cracker? I did not eat it. The entertainment was one shared screen that I did not have a headset for, nor was I offered a headset, free or for a fee. The screen in front of me was too close and the screen behind that was further away and barely able to see it. I choose not to watch it for these reasons. The landing was rough at the end, everyone jolted forward when we hit the ground."
Pros: "Appreciated the staff acommodated me with an aisle seat."
Cons: "Had worse return flight experience. The flight was supposed to depart at 10am. While everyone was boarded, we were told the airplane missing a part. All of us had to wait for 2 and half hours for the crew to tell us that the part was in London. Thus, the flight had to be canceled. Then we waited to pick up our luggages from 12:30pm to nearly 4pm in order to get transported to a 40- minute drive away Hotel. I was starving because I didn't have breakfast as I tried to catch my flight and no food was provided during the waiting time. Plus, the entire day was wasted. Oh well, at least we were provided accommodation for the overnight, 2:40am breakfast, 4am airport shuttle, and 8am flight to get to our destination next day."
Pros: "not a lot"
Cons: "flights were re-scheduled and therefore had to travel a day early causing overnight expenses in NY. Re-scheduled flight was also delayed by an hour!"
Cons: "Had 2 plane tickets to Puerto Rico for my mom funeral But all the sudden my dad passed away one week before the date Iso a have to change the date They did charge me $200 and the other ticket was for my friend was my support he couldn't go cause he's job So I call and they said yes that they gonna help me with the refund all I need is a dead certificate so I send it the papers by email Now they telling me that they can't gave me the refund All my brothers and sisters didn't have no problem with South west air line and other airlines they understood the problem And they did everything without problems Worst service ever Not flying with them ever again"
Cons: "Charge for changing date"
Cons: "it was not clear that finnair was being operated by american airlines. when I arrived to the airport in Paris, they couldn't locate my flight on finairr or american. my flight was missed and the staff on both airlines (finnair and partner american airline) were soo unhelpful. I have never missed a flight, I travel for work, in the air, more than on the ground and this was the WORST experience I have ever had. I was super disappointed that even after all the mistakes, no one would help me find a new flight and I had to pay for another one. Even after calling finnair several times and pleading for some answers or help."
Pros: "I suppose the food / wine was okay."
Cons: "The plane was one of the oldest I have been on in years. The center aisle overhead bins were not even big enough for luggage and there was one TV every 5 or so rows. We were at the mercy of the crappy movies American Airlines chose for us. Most flights these days have individual entertainment and at a minimum room for luggage. The plane was old, dirty and not up to date. Never flying American again. Extremely disappointed with the service on the flight, as well. A little more than halfway through the flight, the woman in the row next to me began reading the airline magazine. Her window shade was up and the sunlight caused a horrible glare on the magazine pages that beamed like a laser over everyone near by. My friend seated next to me and I both have extreme sensitivity to light that causes migraines. I asked the woman to close her shade which at first she did about an inch or two. This didn't do anything to help the glare so I asked again and she refused to do anything more. I explained it was giving us migraines and she didn't seem to care. I asked the flight attendant to help navigate the situation, which was just as useless. She said she could ask but not force her to close her window shade. While I understand that AA can't control that some people can be selfish, I find it incredibly hard to believe that the crew can't intervene when a passengers actions are making other people physically ill. Our only other option was to be relegated to the last row, next to the crews stinking pile of garbage that had been accumulating for the first five hours of the trip. Almost every crew member we interacted with was completely apathetic to the situation. We spent the rest of flight nauseous and with splitting headaches. But I sure hope my row mate and fellow human being in 32A enjoyed the article about the dinosaur flea market in Bolivia This entire situation could have been mediated by the flight attendants who chose to disengage. Furthermore, when we were deceding to land, overhead bins were still open, and people were starting to stand up to gather their belongings in the overhead bins. Again, the apathetic flight attendants were no where to be found. Overall, disappointing experience. Glad to never have to fly them again."
Pros: "The crew were excellent and very professional. It was not a full flight and boarding was quick and easy. We landed almost an hour early. When we made the reservation we were told it was an 8 hour and 50 minute flight but we got there in 7 hours and 45 minutes, more than 1 hour early. It would be good to know the real timing so that meetings could be planned in a timely way."
Cons: "This is a code share with American Airlines and an American Airlines plane and crew and it is an out of date plane. There were no individual screens only 1 screen hanging down every five or six seats. The seats are very, very narrow. The cleanliness of the tray tables were gooey and full of crusted dirt as were the seat areas in front of the tray tables. I was told that they fly an even older plane from Europe to NY, which is an old one aisle plane. Not sure why AA continues to use such out of date planes but if they use planes from the 1980's it seems to me that they should charge 1980 prices!"
Cons: "One flight attendant in my section (23H), plonked food down on the tray with a curt, "passengers-are-a-nuisance" attitude. Her male colleague, when I asked about a spoon for the tub of ice cream said "It's there. If you can find it, you can eat it." I am a 71 yr old woman, and was shocked to be spoken to with such impertinence. Had I not already been travelling for16 hrs, having started the day in the Occupied Territories, I would have reported him to the senior person on board. I was just too tired."
Pros: "Is AA ever slightly embarrassed by the fact that their planes look like they're from the 80?"
Cons: "Shared TV?!!"
Pros: "cabin crew was nice and friendly. Very smooth and experienced pilot, nice take off and landings both ways."
Cons: "This was supposed to be an Iberia flight, but with code share nothing is as it seems. (Had to cancel previous flight on Scandinavian air as that turned into some Turkish Charter). These old birds were 30 years old, out of Arizona desert storage...former TWA, so no entertainment or power or anything. And, AA re-confirmation showed flight and ticket canceled! Said Iberia flight, Iberia said AA flight...yikes! Serious glitches and lost data...locator number erased! You see why I tried to take a foreign carrier."
Cons: "The plain was an old model with no personal screens... So boring"
Pros: "Awesome plane, clean"
Cons: "Pilot didn’t speak the whole flight, only the crew. Better boarding by groups more distributed. Group 5 felt like the whole plane was boarding in one group."
Cons: "The crew overall. Many of them seemed overwhelmed and bothered to be there. Were not helpful and did not try to create a safe environment."
Pros: "I liked the crew"
Cons: "Almost everything"
Pros: "Nice big plane, good movies, good overhead storage"
Cons: "Better food"
Pros: "Amazing crew and good seats."
Cons: "In my experience everything was great."
Pros: "The flight was delayed for more than 4 times, I lost the transport and I will have to spend the night with my brother at the airport."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for more than 4 times, I lost the transport and I will have to spend the night with my brother at the airport."
Pros: "United flew from Puerto Rico to Newark - did not attempt to schedule through airports affected by the hurricane in the southern US"
Cons: "United flights out of San Juan were expensive for those of us who were stuck by hurricane Irma and delayed. I paid almost double what my original carrier charged, but at least we got out 4 days earlier. I see that the carriers have dropped/frozen rates for customers stranded by hurricane Maria, but United was listed at least $100-$200 per ticket above other carriers"
Pros: "Traveling from SJU to GSP, my mom got to the airport in SJU for her 1am flight. To find out it had been canceled. No call or email before hand, the had to wait until 2am to change the flight and get a hotel voucher. After that, next day they board the plane and de-board the plane due to mechanical problems. Another night and just a couple of 10 vouchers. She never received an explanation or recompense for loosing part of her trip in the san juan airport. This is the second time ahe has gone thru this in the same year with United. Awful experinece."
Cons: "No warning for cancelation. No explanation of what is happening and no effort to make it better."
Pros: "A list we were given a nother. Day to travel"
Cons: "My flight to Neward has not happened. It was supposed to be at 1:15 am. It has been posponed to 3:00 pm, plus, my conection flight to IAD, is not available until 2 days after. I had something very important to do today, which did not happed because of this problem."
Pros: "The plane was clean and comfortable. Crew bilingual wich now a days is a must. Nice people, organized and relax."
Cons: "The plane was late for boarding so the flight was delayed. When finally boarding the crew were rushing us to seat... No good."
Pros: "Great flight"
Cons: "Everything regarding food $ wasn't aware of it"
Pros: "Nothing whatsoever"
Cons: "The personnel was very rude. They charged me for my Service Dog which is illegal. Personnel yelled at me for having my service dog with me in the seat. They changed our seats, even though we picked them when buying them for a reason and my boyfriend and I ended up sitting in different lanes. Horrible experience. Landing and take off of the plane felt horrible. They double charged for one service dog. Even though I provided the Dr's note and her service dog tag."
Cons: "I selected the original flight for it's times, which would work best for my grandmother who was traveling solo and needed wheel chair access. Then I receive an email there will be a 7 hour delay and there were no other flights available for my original time slot. United this is the second time you have "delayed" or changed my seat after calling and selecting it and inconvenienced me. I will look for other providers from now on!"
Cons: "Horible!!! Tanto tiempo viajando por United Airlines y nunca me habían cancelado el vuelo una hora antes como me sucedió el dia de hoy."
Pros: "Everything was perfect...."
Pros: "The atención!! Was really good"
Cons: "To late"
Pros: "Nothing it was late as hell"
Pros: "Ease of check in"
Cons: "Delayed flight by hour and half. No digital entertainment available in the whole flight."
Pros: "Have no trouble boarding and the crew were excellent."
Cons: "Seats are to narrow and the distance from the gate to baggage claim was very long. Everything else was good."
Pros: "Speed when they change us from gate"
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "Layover for every flight, technical problems with plane, boarding & unboarding the plane, uncomfortable, never again"
Pros: "On-time boarding."
Cons: "Entertainment system very inconsistent and most of the time not working. If the airline removes the TV displays expecting customers to use their own devices, they need to ensure the wifi is working. The flight attendants said they could fix the wifi issue. That isn't acceptable, somebody should be able to address this in the plane."
Pros: "Crew was great!"
Cons: "Entertainment system did not work"
Pros: "It was quick to checkin but considering we were one of the few flights it should have been that way."
Cons: "No snacks were given to my kids cuz they were sleeping, the plane was freezing took a lil while until someone finally listened to the complaints and turned the heat up. No one was able to give us direction at San Juan airport all information desk were closed. It was a very stressful frustrating time at the airport. We were flying with 2 young kids at 2am and there was no body there to help, anyone we asked question we were given the wrong info not pleased one bit."
Cons: "Excelent service from kayak and the airline"
Pros: "Even though I change my date of flight everything was good, very good customer service100 percent."
Pros: "Blanket and small pillow. Puerto Rico crew sang Christmas song- very nice."
Cons: "No food in a 4 hour flight, plus being early at gate, plus travel to airport. A lot of time without eating, expensive flights and no food. As a matter of fact only 1 tiny bitty snack for the entire flight."
Pros: "Nothing even went i got thete 55 minute early they didn't allow me to board the plaine i wad sent to anothrr airline and i. Still stuck in north carolina to 10:00 pm went i could been in my bed by now no more united for me."
Pros: "The flight got us to where we were going."
Cons: "United waited until last minute to give seat assignments. Out party was split up throughout cabin (departing and returning flights). No entertainment on flight. Most unorganized carrier I've flown with."
Pros: "Attention from crew."
Pros: "Overall, it was easy going"
Cons: "They didn't even provide nuts!! No snacks at all after the long trip."
Pros: "The flight was comfortable, people were courteous, service was as expected."
Cons: "I have no complaints so far"
Cons: "The transportation service demands tips, and they sit around waiting to be called instead of being alert and close by to those in need. Also there were broken seats in the plane. There are no flight specifications for travelers during the flight in Spanish. I also have a complaint since I am a diabetic and no food or drinks were offered as opposed to other flights I've been on."
Cons: "Delays in both flights"
Cons: "Having to pay for food and WiFi access."
Pros: "Nothing. I'm aprecciate if they call me because we have so many problems with the fly. 787-688-5109"
Cons: "The service was bad. Im never fly again with united air line. Never recommended hider"
Pros: "The staff was great and I truly enjoyed my flight experience. I have never had a flight that was so relaxing. Thank you United and Staff."
Pros: "The crew was excellent and professional."
Cons: "The space between the seats, so small. Every time someone next to you needs to get out you have to get up too. So annoying. And the restrooms were not clean."
Pros: "Great, smooth flight.... arrived earlier than scheduled and left exactly on time!"
Pros: "Can't tell something out of the ordinary. Friendly crew."
Cons: "Uncomfortable all the way, remind me planes from the 90`s"
Pros: "The boarding process was excellent and the crew was very carismatic, nice."
Cons: "How the pilot end the flight. The lights were on and I could not sleep at all."
Extra row seats are comfortable and spacious. Flight was delayed
Pros: "The softest landing on our whole trip!"
Pros: "Seats are not that small . It’s comfortable"
Cons: "No dieron gratis nada de café ni agua .y las azafatas estaban burlándose de los pasajeros es una falta de respeto"
Cons: "Tickets were purchased together but yet one ticket was zone 1 and the other two were zone 3"
Pros: "The crew was polite and knowledgeable"
Cons: "The seats were very uncomfortable overnight flight could not sleep"
Pros: "Crew was fine, there need to be a great improvement on the seats"
Cons: "Make seats recline"
Cons: "No TV no music not entertaining"
Pros: "Quick and easy"
Cons: "I’m a small person.... and i barely had room sitting inside the aircraft"
Cons: "Always postponing the damn flight"
Pros: "There was enough leg space and the flight was on time."
Cons: "There was no entertainment or food but that was expected. Otherwise a really great flight."
Pros: "Seats are just not made for trips longer than 2hrs"
Pros: "Good price"
Cons: "Worst trip ever"
Cons: "The flight was delayed due to weather, which is fine, the delay was 45 minutes, not a big deal....Here's the but...when it came to boarding time, they announced that it was not going to be boarding by zones and that everyone should just get on the plane. On top of what appeared to be a mass exodus, or perhaps something you'd see in a third world country, those people who paid more $$ to have carry on bags, in zone 1 and be able to board first were most certainly not feeling the value. The gate experience was not well organized or orchestrated. After getting off the plane, our daughter realized once in baggage claim that she left her backpack on the plane. Not being experienced in this area, we asked for help. A police officer told my wife to go to Frontier office, where there was no one in the office, someone else said have them paged. There was no white courtesy phone in the area that was operating, so she went to Southwest and asked if they could page someone to come to the Frontier office and they said no, walked to next terminal to find a working courtesy phone, paged someone to Frontier and within 5 minutes ,10 people showed up. Asked if someone could help. They radioed to the gate that a passenger left their bag. What the rep should have said was that they called the gate, hopefully someone locates and if they do, they will bring it here and we will check on it in a few minutes. The person didn't say a word, 5 minutes later my wife asked what happens now. After a nice sigh and eye roll, the Frontier rep says if they found, they bring it. My wife asked would it be possible to see if they found it instead of just waiting around here for bodies to appear. The bag was eventually found and returned but the experience was just now a good one to say the least."
Cons: "The seats are the most uncomfortable seats of any airline I have flown on .. The fact that they charge you $45 for a carry on! I mean, what is the point? A checked baggage fee can be explained by the handling, but a carry on??"
Pros: "The crew was friendly."
Cons: "The flight was delayed, which on its face is understandable, except that it seems to be a pattern with Frontier. Whether I'm flying them myself, or picking up someone who's flying them, the last several Frontier flights I've experienced have been delayed, often repeatedly. And then there's the luggage fees . . . I booked this most recent ticket well in advance, and wasn't sure what my luggage needs would be. When I went online to add bags, I learned that adding them post booking, but pre-airport still incurred a significant cost increase - from $25 (at booking) to $38 (a week before check in). To carry one bag and check another, I had to pay nearly $80, which was more than the cost of my actual plane ticket! I'm sorry, Frontier, but I think our relationship is coming to an end . . ."
Cons: "I cancelled my flight a week before the time of departure they said that it'll cost me $99 to cancel the flight and $86.45 was supposed to be refunded. the lady told me it will take 7 to 10 business days when I called 3 days later on the 10th day I called and the gentleman told me that I don't get a refund I get a credit of the $86.45 that I can use to October 7th to use on any flight. My problem with that is I don't fly often and I had to cancel that due to my job. I feel that if I cancel a flight way in advance before the flight is being departed I should be able to get my refund back I'm sorry to say it is but I would never use this airline company again because if I knew that the first time. I wouldn't have done it. Oh I also found out because I keep getting updates from kayak of the flight that the flight was supposed to been I believe was 8:30 p.m. but due to rain it didn't leave Philadelphia Pennsylvania until around 11:45 p.m. so I'm kind of glad now I didn't go because my family member who I was going to visit would have been very upset because they had to stay up an extra 4 hours and they had to go to work the next morning."
Pros: "The crew was great. I had two amazing landings."
Cons: "There are too many additional fees. It's bad enough that I had to pay for a carry on bag....but to actually have to pay for a seat!!??? I thought my fare paid for a seat? I know I would still get a seat if I didn't pay, but I would have no idea where that seat would be until boarding. I'd rather the price of the ticket be raised by $60 and I get a free carry on and choose my seat. I paid $70 For bags and $56 for seating. And what's worse, the seats were TERRIBLE. They used to be a go to, now I will run from Frontier if I can help it."
Pros: "Red eyes are always tough but crew was efficient. Flight left on time and cabin was kept dark and quiet throughout flight. Contrary to some other posts, seats do recline but the button is below the seat and not on the arm rest as most people are used to."
Cons: "On our flight to the destination, crowd on the plane was a bit rowdy and loud."
Cons: "To long time for wait the bag"
Cons: "Horrible delay , uncourteous attendants , not even drinking water is free More or less every airline of America is like this except Southwest ."
Pros: "Good boarding"
Cons: "No entretaiment no coffee no water"
Cons: "Out flight was cancelled after you delayed it for 3 hours. At 2:00AM we finally figured out what was going on. We were stranded in the Philadelphia airport.There was very poor, if any communication. At that late hour, all hotels were booked. We were forced to stay in the airport, with no place to rest. Some passengers got pillows and blankets provided by Frontier which we repeatedly asked for, but were never provided. It was undoubtedly one of the worst experiences of our lives! We are still waiting for our full refund! 3 of us had booked round trip to Orlando, paid for special seating, paid for carry-on bags We expect a rapid response before this goes on social media"
Pros: "The seat were nice, the flight was on time and the staff were kind."
Cons: "Frontier is now a leader in PRICE FRAUD & Extortion! They believe in Dishonest pricing & Deliberately deceiving their customers. They slapped me with an $80 fee to board my flight! Extortion!! So my $170 airfare suddenly increased in price by 47% !! This is a total scam. Worse than a bait & switch scam (which is illegal). Even the smallest tote bag with a toothbrush & overnight clothes will incur extra big fees for carry-on "luggage"... Where is the FCC & the consumer protection bureau on this?...Fees for basic carry-on items needs to be made ILLEGAL!! I'll never fly again with such a dishonest airline. Sign me up for SouthWest every time...I don't care what the price difference is, I refuse to give my money to mobsters.You blew it Frontier! Never Again."
Cons: "After being delayed on the first leg of my trip, we arrived in Denver being told to go to a particular gate. Once there we were told it was moved to another gate. This happened a total of 4 times! Again the flight was delayed. The pilot/co pilot made a negative comment on the PA about the airline after apologizing for the confusion. I was not given the opportunity to choose my seat. When I checked in, I asked to change from the middle seat I was assigned to, to a aisle seat to accommodate my long legs and severe knee arthritis. The attendant at the desk looked at my boarding pass and exclaimed "well, your flying ECONOMY so I guess you'll just have to deal with it". Drinks that are complimentary on Alaska (soft drinks, juice , water etc.) were charged for. The attendants completely skipped my row and we were not offered anything. The attendant did provide me a diet cola at no cost when I brought it to her attention. All in all a miserable trip home, in such contrast to our flight there on Alaska Airlines at the same cost."
Pros: "The crew were polite and we arrived an hour ahead of schedule."
Cons: "It was the most uncomfortable trip I've had on an airplane. I paid $40 for my carry on and was asked to pay extra to choose my seat. I was traveling alone so I opted not to chose a seat but had I had my children and husband with me, I would have been quite annoyed to pay for such uncomfortable accommodations. The fact that the seats don't recline is absurd. The fares look affordable when you are booking but Frontier nickel and dimes you every step of the way once you get your ticket. I'll be taking my business elsewhere when I purchase my next ticket."
Cons: "There was a lag time from when we boarded and when we departed and there was no reason given for the delay. Unfortunately we also experienced a lot of turbulence during the flight (no one's fault) but our almost two year old ended up getting sick and neither seat back pocket had any bags. Luckily the lady next to my husband had brought her own and gave them to us. We were in the back of the plane and asked for a trash bag and or napkins and they ignored us at first. My husband and I tried to stay positive and laughed pretty much the whole time because these things happen. The crew didn't help us until decent (about 20 minutes later) and seemed upset that some got on the floor as they were complaining that they would need to use a special cleaning agent. Our son was such a trooper and wasn't fussy or crying. His stomach just couldn't handle the turbulence. The only positive about our flight we're the wonderful passengers sitting around us!"
Pros: "Nothing at all."
Cons: "The outbound flight was delayed only three hours. The return flight was delayed three hours, after which we boarded and waited. After another hour we taxied to the runway and returned. I am grateful we did not take off with a defunct left-engine. We taxied back to the airport and de-planed--but only after being instructed not to talk to the other passengers. (Really.) The flight was not cancelled, even when the plane was towed to the hangar. Finally, after six hours, Frontier offered a refund--as they had no interest in placing us on another airline that was going to the same destination. I rented a car and drove from Charlotte to Philadelphia to retrieve my own car from the airport so I could arrive home 15 hours after my scheduled arrival. Frontier couldn't care less. NEVER again."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and polyte. Flight was on time. that's about it"
Cons: "Seats are the most uncomfortable of any airline i have ever used. Will charge you $3 for a cup of soda on a 4 hour flight. No entertainment, no wifi. They charge you if you want to pick a seat next to your spouse. $40 for a carry-on Red eye flight, no pillows, no blankets, airpline was freezing cold. Announcements over the speakers every 40 minutes or so asking you to buy or subscribe to some service. Constant announcements , very annoying. Specially on an overnight flight when most people are trying to sleep, which is nearly imposible on those seats"
Pros: "Once on the plane, the flight was fine. No problems."
Cons: "Not the airlines fault, but a bird strike made them switch out our plane for another. Good idea, but the announcements kept saying we were 15-20 minutes away from boarding, but the same 15-20 minutes about three times in a row. We left about an hour late. I would prefer it if you were just straight with us the first time. "Ladies and Gentleman, it will be about an hour. Our new boarding time is XX. Be back here by then and we won't leave without you." Also, the desk crew should have asked the passengers to have a seat instead of standing and blocking the area. People were trying to get by and it was difficult. Also, on a completely different topic, healthier snack choices would be appreciated."
Cons: "The crew was very clumsy and on multiple occasions either elbowed me in the head as the walked passed, hit my knee with the concessions cart,etc. all with Minimal apology. I enjoy flying frontier because of the cheapness, but I this flight made me see what I was paying for. Might just have to bite the bullet and pay the extra few dollars for better service in flight. There was also a maintenance issue that delayed the flight about 15 to 20 minutes and we got little explanation as to what was happening. Lastly, i think it is absolutely ridiculous that you have to pay upwards of $45 to carry on a bag. I had to have an extra $80 added onto my trip due to this, so inconvenient and just makes me want to switch airlines completely and skip all of this hastle. Cheap doesn't always pay off."
Pros: "Very cheap flight. Ticket of price of $197 Denver to Philly round trip. However, once you factored in the luggage charges, the flight came to around $314. We were delayed two hours leaving Denver, and then when we got to Philly it took an hour and a half for them to get our bags to the carousel... unfortunately that wasn't the end of it. They somehow managed to put our flights luggage in the wrong baggage claim areas, so collecting our bags was a nightmare. The worst part was after I saw how much they charged me for a checked bag and a carry on, it came out to be as much as the American Airline flight that I hadn't booked in order to save money."

Cons: "Frontier cancelled return flight without telling me and refusing to do anything other than refund 75$ or give me a flight 4 days later. Frontier refused to help with hotel or other accommodations and I had to rebook flight with delta for 350$ so I could get back home. Also, the employees from Frontier were extremely rude and refused to even look at me or even answer my questions. They said flight was cancelled due to weather reasons, but American Airlines was able to get planes running on only an hour delay. And, again, I never even had the common courtesy of a call or email, or text that my flight was cancelled! I had to find out when I got to the airport,"
Cons: "Received email at 3:30pm that 8:15pm flight from New Orleans to Philadelphia was cancelled. Was on the way to the airport already, so didn't see the email until the lady at the desk told me it was cancelled. When I asked why, she said it was "due to weather" because it was snowy up in Philadelphia. Since they were claiming the cancellation was due to weather, they would not help arrange or pay for an alternate flight on another airline, nor cover a hotel during the time stuck there. They told us that the next flight we could take was Friday (it was Monday), which was also the day before Christmas eve. It was not snowy in Philadelphia. The plane we were supposed to be taking was arriving from Philadelphia on time. After 2hrs of being on hold and arguing with Frontier customer services, they finally admitted to my travel partner that the reason for the cancellation was actually because it would put the flight crew that they had over the legal limit of fly time without breaking/sleeping. So they lied to me completely about the reason to begin with, offered no help whatsoever to resolve the problem in a reasonable manner, and eventually admitted the real cause of the cancellation but still refused to pay for another flight. Luckily, one of my other travel companions was headed to Philadelphia via American Airlines at the same time, and had miles they were willing to let us use. Otherwise, it would have cost $2000 for the two of us to get home - or whatever it would cost to stay in a hotel for 4 nights while missing work. Never choosing them again."
Cons: "We were 5 minutes after the 45 minute cut off for checking in luggage (due to a bunch of mishaps that were obviously not planned for). The Frontier staff was rude, unsympathetic, and very accommodating. They would not work with us at all and made us rebook. They didn't have another flight for another 24 hours. We had to pay $99 a person to go on this flight. The airport was empty. They could have easily rushed our bags on to the flight. (This once happened to me on Southwest and with 28 minutes to spare they got us and our bags on the flight!) They were determined to make us feel miserable and treated us like we were children in trouble. They do not care about customer service and seem to enjoy when their customers are miserable."
Cons: "Seats don't recline- $45 charge for a carryon bag? Staff seems burned out- just going thru motions. Like it's their last job or no other airline would hire them- their doing us ( the customer ) a favor because they went to work that day- the captain seemed fine. Only came on when had to. There were no air sickness bags- the turbulence was very bad. The woman next to me barely made it to the bathroom in time- because on the the lavatories was not in use for a maintenance issue. Overall very poor experience"
Pros: "The animal on the plane was cute. Otherwise, nothing."
Cons: "The plane was late to board which they blamed on cleaning. When we finally got to our seats (both flights) they were filthy. My first seat actually had a chunk of hair and a napkin on it. My second crumbs all over the seat and floor. The seats were horribly uncomfortable and did not recline. They claim they have low fares but there were hidden costs (charges for picking seats AND carry-on bags) that we didn't learn about until we arrived at the airport and had to use money we saved to spend on vacation for the flight instead. I would have rather paid weeks ahead so I didn't have to use our fun money."
Pros: "The flight was pleasant the crew was friendly. the flight departed and landed on time."
Cons: "When I needed assistance it took the attendant at least 15 minutes to recognize my call. Another passenger had to assist. The attendant wasnt serving at the time just chatting with other passengers. i was surprised by the added fees and the seating was tight. the staff at the New Orleans terminal was borderline rude when checking bags. My friends bag was about an inch longer than the required size because of the handle and was forced to pay as a carry on. The staff in Philadelphia was more pleasant and helpful when explaining the added cost."
Pros: "I did not like anything"
Cons: "Passengers were kept on the plane for 3hours before the captain made a decision to let the passengers off. the flight attendants were rude and lacked compassion for the passengers discomfort. Passengers were not offered any complimentary beverages or snacks to compensate for the inconvenience. Limited clarity was given concerning steps needed to board the next flight. The seats are hard, uncomfortable and do not recline. This is not my first negative experience with frontier but it will be the last."
Pros: "Frontier has the best crew members"
Cons: "The flight was changed from arriving on Sunday evening to a red-eye that arrived at 6 am monday morning. My husband and I would not have booked this flight if this had been the original timing. Also, the "first class" is a joke. We paid extra because of previously mentioned schedule changes hoping to get some sleep. (We both had to be at work Monday) The seats were not bigger, any more comfortable, and do not seem to have any additional leg room. The flight itself went smoothly. However, I will try to avoid taking Frontier airlines because of the delays, outrageous schedule rearrangements, and lack of comfortability."
Cons: "I arrived at Austin airport one hour before my flight and no one was at the Frontier counter to help with a boarding pass and check my bag in. I had no choice but to miss my flight and they wouldn't give me a refund and basically told me it was my fault because I didn't arrive two hours prior to boarding? The Lady at the Delta counter told me no one had been at the Frontier counter for over an hour! So I recommend anyone spend the extra money and avoid this airline like the plague. Terrible terrible terrible!"
Cons: "There is no warning from Frontier that customers will be charged for both checked and carry-on bags. Along with being charged extra depending on what seat the customer chooses (up to $30 additional charge). It's a good thing I went online 24 hours before my flight or I would have been very upset to get to the gate and have had to pay $60 for my bag. There seems to be an up charge for everything after the ticket is paid for, including food and drink. The seats in the airplane felt like glorified plastic lawn chairs."
Pros: "not much"
Cons: "poor customer service overall. On return trip, required to pay a "carry on bag fee" of $45 which is nearly double what most airlines charge to check a bag. was a total surprise charge, as we were not charged on the trip out. Return trip - sat on runway for 40 minutes before take off. Made up some time in the air. Upon arrival, sat again for > 30 min before a gate opened. dreadful. Didn't offer beverages without a charge - had to ask if you wanted water (not offered). Purchase snack menu items - very poor selection."
Cons: "The woman at the check in counter was rude, and by the end she had me in tears my bag was fine on the fight in but she insisted on charging me 60 dollars on the way home I had no money or credit cards on me so I had to beg a stranger for money, and when I gave her the 60 dollars she said with a grin on her face we don't accept cash at that point I broke down not knowing what to do she announced one minute to board and finally they let me on I was a mess by then! Never again will I fly Frontier!!!!!!!!!!! Robin M. Cahill 215-669-1108"
Cons: "Despite that the plane had clearly not arrived, the desk people indicated we would still be on time, and we were told that we would make up the time in the air. After waiting for 1.5 hours on the tarmac, we were 1.5 hours late to our destination. The seat were very small and not very comfortable and did not recline. We were told when checking-in online that we would have to pay $16 - $50 to guarantee that we would sit next to each other (only 2 people). Also there was a steep charge for checking and even carry-on luggage! The airline also lost one of our bags on the return trip. Pretty terrible experience overall."
