Pros: "Crew great....moved passengers around near us for Covid related separation."
Cons: "Cramped.....too many seats in too small of a plane....I'm 6ft / 190 lbs"

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Get us off plane. Been stuck at gate in plane for over an hour."

Pros: "Had seat open next to me"
Cons: "Delays on afternoon flights East create all sorts of problems; fewer options the later the arrival"

Pros: "Great entertainment."
Cons: "Turbulence was high so good/drink service was less than normal. No fault of delta or their crew but the JFK airport was awful, especially through customs. No help from the employees and easy to get lost."

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"

Cons: "5 hours late!!!!!! Delta sucks"

Cons: "They left without us. They could have waited a few minutes knowing we were on a delayed flight but didn't. They actually left early."

Pros: "We actually did not fly this route. We bought a car and drove home!"

Pros: "Seat was great, complimentary snacks and alcoholic beverage"

Pros: "First I don’t comment on these normally, but during our flight we had a medical emergency and the crew handled it with perfection. They kept a very calm atmosphere and handled passenger with great care and professionalism. I could not be more impressed."

Cons: "Plane very late. Boarding was chaos"

Pros: "Flight was overbooked!!!! How dare you overbook your planes? If you do that, get new plane!!! People loosing time and money.. 9 people couldn’t get seat on the play they paid for... tomorrows flight is same sting... this is last time fling delta... and we are silver medallions... who fly a lot!!!"
Cons: "Flight was overbooked!!!! How dare you overbook your planes? If you do that, get new plane!!! People loosing time and money.. 9 people couldn’t get seat on the play they paid for... tomorrows flight is same sting... this is last time fling delta... and we are silver medallions... who fly a lot!!!"

Pros: "Pilot and his ability to maneuver the turbulence. Also variety of snacks."
Cons: "Felt hot in the plane."

Pros: "The movies offered were decent"
Cons: "I paid extra for a window seat I sit down after they squeezed us all in like sardines and come to my surprise there is no window in my aisles it had been covered up in plastic . First making my area narrow than all the other seats and between the plane leaving late and the terrible process of loading people on the plane . Delta airlines was all about the up sale from charging for every bag to charging for internet ,food so on and so forth. Also one bathroom in the middle of the plane ? REALLY ? Out of tissue , paper towels , and tissue one hour into the flight . What in the Hell is going on with this airline ? Won’t fly with them again ."

Pros: "very fast boarding , attentive , and easy to figure out"
Cons: "seats cushions"

Pros: "Thankfully I had an Aisle Seat so I could move around a bit. Every seat was taken and it was like a sardine can."
Cons: "Very little leg room and of course as soon as we were in the Air the person in front of me reclined his seat all the way back so the Monitor was only a few inches from my face. This was my single major complaint. The food was not great but typical of an American Carrier. The foreign airlines do better on food. The last time I went to Europe I took WOW, the cheapest budget Airline and the leg room was MUCH better. You would think Delta could do better."

Pros: "No problems occured"
Cons: "Takes so long to board"

Pros: "Everything went smoothly"
Cons: "???"

Pros: "Helpful staff"
Cons: "I didn’t have anything negative to report regarding this flight."

Pros: "Friendly crew and on time flight"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "the flight attendant gets the order starting from the back and by the time she gets to the front there's no more selection for breakfast except for what is left that nobody like."

Pros: "Ended up with earlyish boarding and exit row legroom."
Cons: "Online check-in was an ultimately unsuccessful confusing nightmare. Having either a codeshare flight or a passenger with a new passport would probably have been enough to break the online check-in system, and we had both. Straightened out in the airport, but required waiting in a long line where late arrivals for flights an bhour before ours were given priority. Frustrating not to have a seat assignment until boarding had already begin (would have gone SWA if we wanted that mess)."

Pros: "Easy boarding and helpful crew (despite the rain as we walked to the plane)."
Cons: "No entertainment options on board. All Delta planes should have the TV monitors and radio."

Pros: "Seems like people that work for Delta are too old and too comfortable. Don’t want to work nor do they appreciate customers. Gate agent in SLC complained she was the only one there and could not help. Tried to send me tohelp desk which would have made me miss my flight. Flight attendant couldn’t move my back pack in bin did not tell me she had a bad shoulder. She should not be working then if she can’t lift a small backpack. Omg"

Pros: "I had a window seat"
Cons: "bumpy flight"

Cons: "I don't like that I already completed this survey several days ago and have been receiving reminders to do so. I guess you don't have a good system in place for knowing who has and has not completed your surveys. That's too bad."

Cons: "Every flight was 100% full. Inadequate overhead space. I felt I was being herded like cattle. It is NOT a pleasurable experience flying with Delta."

Pros: "We spent 90 min in line to take off on the tarmac. Pilot kept us informed. Crew were very pleasant."

Pros: "Thomas our steward was excellent."

Cons: "No Wi-Fi"

Cons: "Flight was delayed for very 4 hrs sat in plane for 2.5 of those. Flight was delayed dye to strike in Barcelona. But replacement plane had fueling problems delaying the flight another 2 hours"

Pros: "Not the wor st comfort,"
Cons: "Cannot even request seats before booarding, as they try to get us to pay more. The anxiety over separate seating for couples is not worth it."

Pros: "Had a great experience on my flight. All on time, and connections were great."

Pros: "I had 45 minutes to transfer planes in Atlanta and made it in plenty of time even though it was far. plenty of information given regarding incoming flight and departure. Boarding was also easy."
Cons: "The engine noise in the plane was so loud I couldn't watch a movie. My gluten free meal was awful and tasteless. I would have preferred yogurt and fruit instead of the chicken and vegetables with a rice cake."

Pros: "It only took them 10 minutes to turn things around to make up time for the delay."
Cons: "The seat pockets were not cleaned."

Pros: "Flight was comfortable and clean. I enjoyed the basics of drinks, snacks, carry-on, seat selection, and entertainment for the price of what other airlines charge for just a flight with nothing else included."

Pros: "They offered water and snacks It was quick"

Pros: "Hospitable crew"
Cons: "Na, nothing special"

Pros: "you must be kidding me!!! nothing to say good about this fly !!The sad part I'm American Express Delta SkyMiles credit card holder and they couldn't do anything for meThe only good thing we arrive in Mexico"
Cons: "flying to Mexico with. my two boys !!to begin I have to call Delta to put us seat together because the time of the fight had changed!! before we are siting by de middle of the plain when a booked r three seat together !! but than i got a imail confimatin with separete seattle for the kids!!we end up sitting all the way back on the plan!! we end up sitting all the way back on the plane l!! no TVs no windows in the last sits by the only two bathrooms on the plane with two boys that was not fun at all !!The sad part I'm American Express Delta SkyMiles credit card holder and they couldn't do anything for me when I called them"

Pros: "The seats were the widest with the most cushion and padding I've ever had on any flight, I think all their seats were like that. The plane we were on had more leg room than your average flight. Also the backs of the chair were very tall, leaving even mpre head room perfect for tall people . I fly a lot and sometimes my knees hit the seat in front of me or when they recline it shoves the tray to close to you. Not on this flight there was enough room for me to lay back in the seat had the adjustable headrest that went up and down and also curved in to hold your head from falling on your neighbor next to you. Love the fact they had the USB plug-in in front of you. And the crew constantly kept coming through to empty trash and offer beverages. The plane was clean bathrooms in front and back of the airplane. Over all quiet engine and we were above the wings. Temperature good."
Cons: "The crew member that was checking in people at the gate would talk so fast we could barely understand what he was saying on the overhead announcement. I was traveling with someone who was hearing impaired so we were unaware of that they were getting ready to board. The electronic TV monitor wasn't updating to say boarding to notify people that would be helpful for the hearing impaired. Or--if a crew member is muffled on the announcement or talks too fast you can't understand or know what's going on. The most frustrating thing for me and my daughter we were both expecting to use Delta online entertainment. There are no monitor screens in the seats in front of us on this plane. So we were able to use our phones, but it would not download and once It finally downloaded we couldn't upload any of the movies. Connection speed way too slow. The warning said there were too many people on it at that time. Also I like it when they offer free headphones for people that don't have them. An example that would benefit people that don't want to listen to loud people on the plane or babies that are crying."

Pros: "Free movies/TV is a great amenity. Overhead bins were full by the time I boarded, so I gate-checked my bag. The staff was helpful and accommodating, which made that process quick and easy."
Cons: "Boarding is chaos. There's got to be a more efficient way than zones."

Pros: "The cinnamon cookies, the in-flight movie selection, and the helpful flight crew helped make this flight not as bad as it could have been."
Cons: "There was an infant in the seat directly behind me that chose to cry and scream through a large part of the flight. The mother of this child did not/was not able to keep the child from crying. Even with headphones on, this child's crying persisted to pierce the ears of every passenger within 5 rows of it."

Pros: "Over all was okay, but when we all boarded the plane, they last minute said the pilot would be late, and delayed our flight for almost 2 hours. We were almost late to our next flight in Minneapolis to Raleigh which was also pretty upsetting. But, the service was decent, we didn't order any food besides the free complimentary drink & snack and the entertainment was very good. There was a wide range of films, shows, and podcasts to watch."
Cons: "Management was very bad- Delta screwed up really bad"

Pros: "Didn't nickel and dime us about snacks or entertainment. Warned us about turbulence, but it wasn't too bad, thanks to the pilot for doing his best to keep us on an even keel. Did not feel,squished in the "comfort" or Premium Economy seats. In the lowered expectations world of modern air travel, this was relatively OK, which means I recommend it and would fly with them again."

Pros: "Efficient, comfortable, on time"

Pros: "I like the new equipment on ATL - ABQ in first class, comfortable with good new video. Salmon dinner was quite good as well."

Pros: "Staff was great, flight o time."

Pros: "Same as Boston to Minneapolis."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Crew was very accommodating and friendly."

Cons: "Taxi time to gate was almost half hour."

Pros: "Good flight. 3 hour duration at night. I flew in first class, as the extension of my business class flight from Paris."
Cons: "Had to use a wheelchair service in terminals. Me and another victim were wheeled to 40 feet from the check in desk and the guy took off without further instruction. I hobbled to the counter to make sure we were on the pre-board list. Defeats the purpose, but whatever....."

Cons: "Es on flight 5799 which was delayed over four hours and finally cancelled. Delay without explanation but did not appear to be weather related. Cancelled because no crew available. Put on another flight that was to leave st 10:45, but delayed due to weight restrictions without luggage."

Pros: "crew"
Cons: "Entertainment system broken. No heart Healthy food"

Pros: "The crew was good"
Cons: "Paid $330.00 +/- for a one way ticket. Some how i messed up on the date and had it for 8/3/18 instead of 8/2/18. Had to pay an additional $500 + for the change. I understand that the fault didn't lie with AA, however, the rate for changing the ticket borders on the ridiculous. I have to travel quite a bit as of late for work, I am doing all i can to Avoid using American. There were others on the flight that paid for first class that didn't pay as much as me and i was stuck in boarding group 6. It really feels as though American is only in it for the dollars, not the customer service."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Packed"

Cons: "The plane was too warm before take off."

Pros: "First class is always comfortable"
Cons: "Headline tells it all. First thing passenger did when he sat down was hand flight attendant a$5 bill, which she accepted she made sure he and the others in row one were served preboard refreshment. The rest of us not, as she was so engaged with the favored passenger. Not good!"

Pros: "IFE very good"
Cons: "No legroom"

Cons: "We were unfortunately stuck on the tarmac for 45 minutes. I ran to my connecting gate but they had already closed it. There wasn’t a service rep at the gate. I walked to another gate and there was a very helpful rep who rebooked me to a nearby city. It overall was disappointing and caused me to get home about 3 1/2 hours later."

Pros: "Pleasantly surprised by AA. I would definitely fly AA again"

Cons: "The flight was five hours late leaving Phoenix due to not having a crew"

Pros: "All AA employees I interacted with were professional & very helpful to me & my family. Thank you"
Cons: "NA"

Pros: "Food voucher, small consolation for a missed dinner with family!"
Cons: "Delayed due to tire issue, deboarded and were told another plane would be there in 45 minutes, took 3 hours!!"

Pros: "In flight entertainment is good."
Cons: "Leg room is getting less and less. I’m 5’10” and couldn’t move my legs."

Pros: "Almost all parts were more than satisfactory as expected"
Cons: "Didn't enjoy nor appreciate the nearly 9 hour delay due to plane maintenance issues."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "AA claimed the overhead storage was full and took my carry-on. Except I walked by at least 15 spots that easily would have fit my bag. They made us pay $50 to check-in luggage, but then didn't bother to put the bags on our flight. They also tried to charge us twice for the privilege of checking bags. They had no flights that would get us home on the same day, then claimed that since 12 hours had elapsed, we had to repay to check bags. During the flight, they had non stop commercials for their credit card. Ugh"

Pros: "Everything."
Cons: "No problems."

Pros: "Uncertain why there are 9 boarding groups, seems to be excessive/confusing."

Pros: "It was a short trip, LA to Albuquerque. Flight attendants were nice, plane was clean, and I was comfortable enough to sleep all 2 hours"

Pros: "I like the food."
Cons: "Japanese shows without eng subs."

Pros: "Nice new Aircraft. Good service. Reasonable food."
Cons: "Seats have little leg room. Like most....thry pack them in!"

Pros: "We pleaded with attendant to let us take our carry on. We were first to board and all others on the flight were volunteer bag check only. It is Very difficult for me to walk. We packed in small carry on just so we could avoid the baggage carasol. She could have Easily granted our wish and treated is in volunteer manner like everyone else. But no way."
Cons: "Everything else was fine."

Cons: "Cramped seating, uncomfortable cabin temperature, very hard/jolting landing"

Cons: "Flight path at the end had to many turns kinda made me sick"

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Zero entertainment. Flight sat on tarmac as they tried to fix some technical issues after taxiing"

Pros: "It got us there on time"
Cons: "No inflight entertainment on the longer flight. Uhgggg."

Cons: "Prices are high and changes are frequent on rates"

Pros: "Flight got cancelled"

Pros: "It he seats were very comfortable There was enough leg space Crew was excellent The timing was good"

Cons: "Lots of turbulence."

Pros: "I was treated in a professional fashion"
Cons: "I don't think it is right for the airlines to have any passenger seating in such a tight space."

Pros: "I loved getting up close and personal with others."
Cons: "I didn't like being stuck in a window seat next to two oversized passengers. The person in the isle announced to the middle seat that " I'm giving you notice that I need all of my seat". So the middle seat took up part of my seat, and I feel cheated, because I couldn't use all that I paid for."

Pros: "The flight crew was exceptionally kind"
Cons: "I rarely check bags but this was the second time in the last few months that I have and they were both terrible experiences. Last time, on my return flight home from Phoenix, I was forced to pay $250 for my long sports bag, even though the tag to get there was still on it and my receipt showed that it was the standard fare and was bluntly told the other attendant 'didn't do their job.' This time, after my travel mate already checked in and payed for two bags, when we brought the bags to the counter to drop off, we asked for future reference what the procedure was for AAdvantage card holders to get their first bag checked free. Her response was that she couldn't refund our money. I told her I wasn't asking for a refund and repeated my question - how to do it in the future, to which she responded that we should have come straight to the counter without checking in but all accounts are different and she had no idea what his was. To her credit, she did warm up after that, perhaps she heard how abrupt and unhelpful she was being but it was unfortunate to start yet another airport experience with coldness at American Airlines"

Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable, too narrow, and little leg room."

Pros: "Friendly crew."

Pros: "Have a great trip without any problems."

Pros: "Entertainment had many options with a few good and recent movies."
Cons: "I purchased Alaskan tickets, hoping for their legroom, baggage guarantees and excellent beer. Instead I got an American Air flight – one of their trusted partners. None of their deals carries over to AA. I guess I will pay closer attention next time."

Pros: "Fast boarding and left gate on time on a holiday"
Cons: "Felt cramped in like cattle"

Pros: "I got home eventually"
Cons: "Wifi way too expensive compared to other airlines"

Cons: "I did not like how I requested a same day flight, was presented with a low fare, so I took it, and it was deceptively a different day months in the future. . . This is not a flight I feel I should have paid for, as I feel I was deceived"

Pros: "The only thing to like was arriving on time."
Cons: "Paid extra for priority boarding, that was a mistake. We got boarding group one but by the time all the families with kids, first class, and frequent flyers went ahead of us they called all remaining groups together. Forget about overhead space left over, we had to gate check carry on. Seats were very uncomfortable, no room under the seat because of a big metal box for power outlets. No leg room, sat shoulders and thighs touching with neighbors. No meal service, just drinks and pretzels, luckily we ate before departure. Never again!"

Pros: "Chargers in the back of the seat for devices Friendly staff Nice quality airplanes"
Cons: "Paid for WiFi, and it was very choppy and slow. Took over 3-4 min, and several refreshes to send/receive an email."

Pros: "Got pretty much what I expected from economy."
Cons: "Lack of planning for carry on bags."

Cons: "Due to two flight delays, I traveled an additional 24 hours, on top of my 20 hour original flight. Albuquerque Airline staff were rude, dismissive, incompetent, and each individual I spoke with gave me wildly differing information. The two delays (leading to approximately 48 hours of travel) would have been stressful enough, but the callous, ignorant and unprofessional attitudes of American Airlines staff (and staff in general at Chicago O'Hare Airport) really disappointed me. This was even more striking compared with the professional service I received from British Airways (from whom I purchased the tickets). I was ashamed that my country could lag so far behind in terms of basic customer service and problem solving."

Pros: "How dark the flight was to sleep"
Cons: "Delayed flight"

Pros: "The pilot and the crew were very apologetic and went out of their way to make us feel comfortable & relaxed."
Cons: "We were delayed due to weather."

Cons: "It was terrible. A missing flight attendant caused an extra delay in departure. Missed connecting flight. American Airlines was not prepared to assist all the stranded travelers. Had to spend night in the airport until I could get on a flight the next day. This was not what I paid for."

Pros: "COMFORTABLE SEATS EVEN FIR A BIG GUY LIKE ME, FRIENDLY STAFF."
Cons: "LAST RED EYE FLIGHT WAS CANCELLED"

Cons: "Connecting flight between LAX-PHX and PHX-STL cut it pretty close. I had to run across the airport at PHX which is a little hard considering how big the airport is."

Cons: "Delay killed my travel plans and resulted in a nine hour layover in Munich Germany!"

Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Plane was over 2 hours late. It was tiny. Super claustrophobic."

Pros: "The boarding was quick, the flight was uneventful"
Cons: "The flight attendants could be friendlier and smile more"

Pros: "Service was friendly. Food ok. Entertainment acceptable for long flight."
Cons: "There is More Variety of entertainment on Delta and American Airlines but otherwise comparable."

Pros: "My flight was delayed where I would have missed my connection, customer service rebooked on another flight which got me to my final destination early. The upgrades and consistent service is handled very well."
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Seats were comfortable and service was good, which is rare in United!"
Cons: "The dinner was paasable but the breakfast was horrible. Stale croissant. No butter."

Pros: "Nice Airplane and good experience on United Domestic flights. International is another story! It seems many of the senior flight attendants think the passengers are there to serve them vs. the reverse."
Cons: "No complaints about domestic flights. United gets good marks here."

Cons: "Both flights were delayed, and was charged a $200 oversized baggage fee for a bag that actually isn't oversized according to the measurements on the United website"

Cons: "Comfort , service,..terrible!"

Pros: "Economy Plus works well"
Cons: "United new seats are uncomfortable"

Cons: "Gate was changed.. Delayed one hour"

Pros: "It didn't crash"
Cons: "two hours late without any reason given, and forced to check my bag on the prior flight to the final destination meaning I can't get it at gate side. Numerous flights to Cedar Rapids through United have been canceled or delayed without any explanation - I don't have faith in United anymore and will not book with them again."

Pros: "The snack boxes are very good. The on flight crew were excellent. The gate crew - not so much."
Cons: "Row 32- seats don't recline. I requested to be sat with my children at booking - we were in different rows 3 of the 4 legs. My TV wouldn't accept cc payment."

Pros: "They still offer drinks. It was a short flight, so all the bad things didn't have to be endured for as long."
Cons: "Every time I fly United, I realize they shrank the seat size, again. Oh, and the flight attendant spilled my drink on me. Only said, "sorry, buddy" and then got me a couple of napkins... Was friendly other than that, though. O.o"

Pros: "Staff was nice and attentive"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"

Pros: "Great flight attendants on flight itself."
Cons: "Ridiculous price of flight from OC to SFO, the $200 cancellation fee when cancellation was medically related & notification was over 24hrs. 45minute flight delay."

Pros: "The service was good, the workers were doing their best to calm everyone down"
Cons: "The flight was delayed as well as my connecting flight."

Pros: "Flight crew was great. Easy, quick boarding."
Cons: "$25 for the first checked bag is a ripoff."

Pros: "I liked the fact that it was a direct flight and the departure and arrival times were just perfect. I really liked the cookies they had. If I had wanted to use it, there was WiFi available."
Cons: "We took off late due to mechanical problems and I think the practice of allowing first class passengers to board first and then get in the way of other people trying to board later is inefficient."

Pros: "Both flights arrived early."

Cons: "Wifi on the first flight was great, unable to view any entertainment on the connecting flight"

Pros: "The price...for once, a weekend to SF was reasonable!"

Pros: "Okay crew."
Cons: "Cramped, uncomfortable seating. Departure time and gate changes."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "When traveling with a service animal, it's kind of a given that I would be seated where there would be room for my dog. My dog is 70 pounds. There was no room for him to sit in front of me. The flight attendant just says "he can't sit in the isle". I asked her where would you like him to go? She says "not in the isle". A 2nd attendant was able to move me to a front row where there was space for him to sit on the floor in front of me."

Pros: "The crew was very nice, the food was good and boarding was quick."
Cons: "The seats were terribly uncomfortable, and the WiFi was expensive. Plus, when I got to my destination, my suitcase has been damaged and a few items were missing."

Pros: "No problems."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "On time comfortable seat."
Cons: "Everything was fine"

Cons: "We had to land in San Antonio due to bad weather (understandable), but the customer service was appalling. They kept passengers on the plane for 3 hours and 45 minutes, which is prohibited by federa law. They failed to provide additional snacks when the passengers were on the plane for over 7.5 hours, and made it seem like it was such a nuisance when we asked for water. They were able to pass out one cookie by hour 6 but the flight attendant made it VERY clear that they had to do "so much paperwork" to get it approved. The flight attendants were rude, inconsiderate, and when asked what the game plan was after our 4 hour delay, their response was, ""not sure, not my department." If they didn't have answers, that's fine, but the manner and careless tone in which they replied was inconsiderate and insincere. When we finally landed at our half way destination in Houston, the flight attendant made a comment about how she can't get home due to all of the delays without considering that half of the passengers had the same dilemma and paid hundreds of dollars for their flights! The flight attendant had no empathy or respect and I would NEVER take this airline again. We spent the night at the airport and are still trying to find a flight to our destinatiom in New York :("

Pros: "No problem flight"
Cons: "Announcements from cockpit inaudible"

Pros: "The plane was not full for most of the trip=more room. Flight was shirted than expected"
Cons: "Staff seemed stressed. It was hot! The temperature was lowered after many voiced discomfort. Entertainment very limited considering the length of the flight."

Cons: "Gate crew had no interest in helping with layovers affected by flight delay."

Pros: "My first trip as a handicapped traveler. All airline staff made me feel comfortable and welcome."
Cons: "In the Denver airport one of the wheelchair pushers let me stranded. The airline staff came to my rescue and got me to the restrooms and down the ramp to the airplane to Albuquerque."

Pros: "There was not enough room for my legs."

Pros: "Service was good"
Cons: "What happened to the 1960s concept of stewerdess?"

Pros: "The flight crew was nice"
Cons: "The flights landing was a fast decent"

Pros: "She saw me boarding with two small kids and came right up with snacks and juice! Much appreciated. Also I really like that you do pre-boarding again for families with young ones. Thank you."
Cons: "Food. You said you have wifi but I was never able to connect. Don't understand."

Cons: "Plane was old and dirty ...."

Pros: "American Airlines saved the day!"

Pros: "Flight left on time and arrived early. Not just this time but also the last four times I took this flight. That's what it's all about."

Pros: "informative and accurate why we could not take off on time"

Pros: "Early arrival is always good. The crew was pleasant and professional."
Cons: "The seats are too crowded and the $95 charge for an upgraded seat is too high."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "I want to thank United for taking excellent care with my mobility issues (broken ankle). From changing the seats to provide wheelchairs, made things much easier."
Cons: "I put food poor as there was no N/A...we did not get anything for the redeye flight."

Pros: "I appreciated the updates and prompt boarding with my flight. It was organized."
Cons: "The crew was very unprofessional. I was NOT offered any drinks and they raised their voices at me to straighten my chair. I guess they assumed I didn't speak or understand English. Don't expect much from them. I'm just glad I got from a to b."

Pros: "Nothing!!"
Cons: "The staff was very rude and they picked and chose who they wanted to move up front when there were very large people setting next to one another and the staff grabbed some of the smallest individuals and moved them up to business class. Very unprofessional!!!"

Pros: "Never ever again. Delay after delay, maintenance issues and when you get to your destination, your bag for which you had to pay $25 looks like someone played soccer with."
Cons: "With all the fees I payed, my flight was very expensive. Don't fall for kayak or other sites deals. It's not a deal at all. If you live in Chicago area, fly southwest out of Midway. They'll get you to almost all destinations in US... always on time and no bag fees... plus you'll get a snack"

Pros: "Thank you."

Pros: "The staff were extremely nice"

Cons: "Delays on the Tarmac at both arrival and take off. I would have missed my connecting flight if it hadn't been cancelled anyway."

Pros: "Staff was really polite and friendly. Five stars to them.."
Cons: "There was a mechanic problem and they change gate numbers, everybody walk to the new gate; all the sudden they send us back to the original gate just to tell us that the gate was changed again..."

Pros: "New seats, comfy, legroom, pleasant FAs"
Cons: "Only coke products. Asked for tomato juice - was told it would be $2.50. Nope."

Cons: "Cost too much for carry-on. Seats don't recline."

Pros: "The crew was friendly."
Cons: "No in flight snacks, entertainment, and seats were not very comfortable."

Cons: "It never got off the ground! Frontier didn't try to reach out about the cancellation before hand. TERRIBLE customer service! So disappointed!!"

Pros: "Crew was ok"
Cons: "I was on flight #266 from Orange county to Denver on Oct.1 Luggage came after hour & a half. Flight to orange county from Denver was late. Will never fly Frontier again."

Pros: "Clean, new plane. Courteous crew. Smooth flight from SNA to DIA with updates from Captain."
Cons: "Seats were extremely uncomfortable. One had to purchase a beverage (non-alcoholic)."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Delayed on the way there and delayed on the way home. Hen we sat on the runway for another 45 minutes waiting for a gate to open. Never again will I travel with Frontier!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

Pros: "The flight wasn't delayed 12 hours this time"
Cons: "The long layover in Denver and that I wasn't given a full refund for my flight there when I had to book with a different airline, nor was my $30 bag check refunded."

Cons: "Frontier does not participate/honor TSA Precheck Frontier charges for checked bags AND carry on bags Frontier seats do not recline"

Pros: "The crew was pleasant."
Cons: "Everything is am upcharge! Food, bags, seats... they even charge for all beverages and ask for a tip on top of it. The seats don't recline and tgere is no entertainment. I will not fly Frontier Airlines ever again. What a disappointment."

Pros: "Flight took off earlier than expected, which was great. Great staff at ticket check"
Cons: "Flight attendants weren't frienfly"

Cons: "Delayed more than one hour"

Pros: "Bar/food menu bundled The food wasn't good but concept was"
Cons: "Nothing to read watch or listen to"

Pros: "The aircraft staff and ticket counter staff were friendly."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed 30 mins and then when we arrived at our destination, we had to sit on the plane for another 30-40 minutes because there was no crew available to guide the aircraft in and connect the skyway. its been a while since we've traveled Frintier, and now I know why. Super cheap seats, tray table (or lack thereof), and the buckle and dining on seats, luggage, carry on is absurd! They have done a complete overhaul of their brand from when I used to fly them more regularly."

Cons: "Had to pay $40-45 per piece for checking carry-on luggage, charges for anything to eat or drink, charges to pick a seat that wasn't in the middle. Will not fly Frontier again."

Cons: "1. Discount experience 2. Small tray tables could not support a small laptop 3. Initial 15 minute delay became an hour delay followed by another delay as we waited for a crew member who was traveling -- announced that we were wait for another crew member who sat in the passenger section 4. Unexpected additional $13.00 charge to select a seat 5. Charge of $2.00 for in flight soda 6. Unexpected $45.00 charge for carry-on luggage 7. No entertainment, no visual nor auditory options Next time I will avoid Frontier and Kayak and book directly with United or Delta."

Pros: "Flight was on time. Fairly smooth ride"
Cons: "Pay extra for seats and a snack should be included in price"

Pros: "The price of the flight was good, and the people were nice. But all luggage, drinks and snacks cost additional money in flight."
Cons: "That my one parcel of luggage (carry on) cost me $40 onto of my flight cost to bring it. You should get at least one piece of luggage free. After all, most other airlines do it that way....and you need to expect that people art flying without any luggage at all."

Pros: "Price point, comfortable seat."
Cons: "No entertainment options"

Pros: "Seats did not recline, so no one flopped back into me."
Cons: "I had a window seat and asked if I could switch to an aisle. There was an upcharge for switching seats. No food or drinks offered free."

Cons: "No room between seats; very uncomfortable"

Pros: "Evertytging ran very smoothly. Got loaded early and got to Denver early which is always nice when traveling with a 3 year old."
Cons: "Turbulence coming into Denver was a bit bumpy. Made my niece nervous but I understand is common in denver."

Pros: "The flight was short!"
Cons: "I am shocked at how Frontier has downgraded to uncomfortable seats, no entertainment, envelope sized trays, and charging for extra for everything!! So disappointed=("

Cons: "Frontier charges for carry ons. Ridiculous!"

Pros: "clean, OK leg room, nobody reclining in my lap. Seats can not recline but are comfortable as they are. On time, cheap & good service or what was there of it (not much)."
Cons: "Even during check in process any choice of seat will cost you extra. Even basic drink will cost you extra. So check the fees before you decide the ticket is cheap and add to the cost all that you might need, seat included unless you want the middle one in back next to toilets. Seat selection in my case added 10% to the cost of ticket. Brought my own food and glad of it since the cheapest thing was $2 drink and $3 bag of chips."

Pros: "Best price around. Very punctual - even left early."
Cons: "Careful about checking in on-line; don't get sucked in to extra fees for seats, carry-ons, etc. Also, there is nothing free on board - not even coffe or water."

Pros: "The pilot stuck me as an upbeat, positive professional. I appreciated that he mentioned we were headed to the home of the Super Bowl Champion Denver Broncos. It made me smile."
Cons: "No negatives at all."

Pros: "The staff were great. Boarding was also fast"
Cons: "Had to pay for carry one, not comfortable"

Pros: "Everything with the flight went pretty smoothly, no better or worse than I'd expect from any airline."
Cons: "Charges for everything. Even selecting a seat -- ANY seat -- cost additional money. Those charges were different coming and going. I couldn't plan for cost until after buying the tickets. The policies were not terribly clear when specifying what kind of carry-on bags would incur charges. So, rather than risk paying even more at the gate if my small bag constituted a carry-on, I just paid the extra money for a carry-on. As my father and his childhood friends used to say in their neighborhood games with special rules: Learn as you lose."

Pros: "Boarding was great."
Cons: "one of the lead flight crew members was extremely rude to my brother. He asked a simple question regarding if the overhead compartment was free and she responded very rudely. I didn't appreciate that. Perhaps she may have been having a bad day but being unnecessarily rude isn't a good quality."

Pros: "Was on time both ways."
Cons: "Seats were random, I didn't get to sit where I wanted. Loud plane ride on way home, loud humming noise that was out of the ordinary. No food served and no entertainment, but I knew that buying this ticket."

Pros: "The plane was clean and on time"
Cons: "This was without a doubt the most uncomfortable plane anyone in our family has ever been on. Not to mention that the size of the trays was completely useless, in addition to chair is not reclining at all. And no legroom whatsoever. We felt nickeled and dime did every turn paying the highest fees for baggage of any airline we've ever traveled, on top of only being able to bring one carry-on, and having to pay for any kind of beverage or snack on the plane. The staff was neither friendly or rude, I would say ambivalent. I don't normally leave negative reviews – but I will avoid frontier in the future. ( I apologize for the typos – I have dictated this on my phone, and the system is not allowing me to correct them. )"

Pros: "Made it to my destination alive!"
Cons: "Extra cost after ticket purchase for seats both ways. Extra cost for any bags including carry-on. Extra cost for any food or drink item during flight-don't even get a cheap bag of peanuts for free!"

Pros: "Charge for food, overhead, and seat reservationa?!?!?!?! May as well be the same price as the rest and get the options! The planes were old and dirty as well! Had the crew walking the plane to offer the Frontier line of credit? WHAT POOR TASTE!!!!!Te policy for what is considered a carry-on bag is even MORE rediculous!"

Cons: "The staff who checked us in was rude. I asked to talk to supervisor about a concern and she totally ignored me. The frontier flights are so aweful, this is the last time our family will travel with them. Does frontier really believe that the customer doesn't have a choice? They treat customers so poorly that I can't wait for them to go out of business and let other airlines come on board"

Pros: "The take off and landing were smooth."
Cons: "Charged for everything under the sun, how disgusting. Decided to save money by checking bag, huge mistake. Touched down 30 min early, however, baggage was delayed 2 hrs."

Pros: "Didn't die."
Cons: "Frontier now makes you pay for any bag you carry on or check on, meaning you need to add at least $70 to your round trip price. Then, keep I'm mind that you don't get to select a seat unless you pay another $20. When you finally do get on the plane after an hour delay and get your seat, you'll experience the most uncomfortable flight of your life in what can only be described as the equivalent of a folding plastic chair with fake leather glued to it. It doesn't recline, it has practically no padding, it has no head or neck support, the armrest is about 6" long and 1" wide to share with the overweight woman next to you, and the tray table is the size of an iPad mini. Whatever, brush it off and try to relax when they come by with your drink and pretzels, right? Wrong. Because the new Frontier Airlines has decided that they waste too much money on a cup of soda that must cost them a whopping 5 cents at the bulk rate they buy it in. You want that can of soda? $2 it is then. Bag of pretzels? $4 because f**k you, where the f**k else are you going to buy a snack at 34,000 feet in the air. To be perfectly fair, we arrived safe and sound, albeit late, and the people were friendly. That said, the measures Frontier has taken to inconvenience the customer just to make their ticket slightly cheaper is not worth it. I will not be returning. It's worth paying whatever the next best airline charges to avoid Frontier."

Cons: "Our flight was delayed a hour originally, then once to the hour, delayed aborted 3 hours and so on until it was eventual delayed 7 hours. When a southwest flight going to the airport as us schedule for a original take off about 10 mins apart left four hours before our flight.. Does not make since to me. I was unpleased with one of the flight attendants and her slight bit of attitude it seemed.. There was a open row and my friend and I traveling together just asked to sit there together since no one was in the isle at all.. After sitting in a small airport waiting for a flight for 7 hours I would have expected more welcoming service.. I will most likely not chose to fly with your company again..thank you Ashley Hietbrink ahietbrink16@gmail.com"

Pros: "The attendants handled the weather delay well, with patience, understanding and helpfulness."
Cons: "Weather delay for 7 hours. Had to pay $13 for my coach seat and $40 for my carry-on. Had to pay for all snacks except water. Very, very poor rating on all of the above. Frontier will now become my last choice."

Pros: "The quick boarding process."
Cons: "I always flew Frontier. It was my top airline. I loved it because of the TVs, the spacious seats, the service, everything. Now, I pay for every single thing. Frontier is the only airline where I have to pay for a soda, I find that ridiculous. We pay a lot to fly, and we can't get a free soda? I couldn't fit my iPad on the tray table because it's so small now. I miss having the TVs, and was not aware they didn't have them anymore so I was incredibly bored on my flight. I wish Frontier had the old planes and at least offered something complimentary. Never again. Sorry Frontier!"

Cons: "the tray is too small and there is not enough room to bend over and put your head down on the tray!"

Pros: "There was a male flight attendant. Very helpful and polite."
Cons: "Lady attendant had attitude over loud speaker regarding assigned seating. Passengers shouldn't have to be subject to someone's bad day."

Pros: "Fl"
Cons: "Services from attendant"

Pros: "It was on time."
Cons: "Put you in a seat that does not recline while 4 seats in the exit aisle go empty, even the window seat that opens the door. When asked to move stated, " you have to pay extra for those seats". Good old Frontier."

Pros: "The wait in Denver was too long but I expected it to be except every time I fly with Frontier, it seems like the gate keeps on changing in Denver which can be annoying!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "It was horrible. Seats were uncomfortable. The plane was old."

Cons: "On a redeye where seats did not recline at ALL. No check on how we were doing or offer of water...just a constant reminder that all beverages & snacks were for purchase. REDICULOUS that you are charged for carry on bags. Most likely won't fly with them again."

Pros: "Crew was pleasant"
Cons: "Seats were so hard and uncomfortable"

Pros: "Cheap airfare"
Cons: "Charged for everything including snacks and carry on baggage. Also seats don't recline"

Pros: "On time. Friendly crew."
Cons: "Paying for bags and seat assignments. No IFE or wi-fi"
