Pros: "Crew. Alcohol and water bottles. Food. Entertainment. Comfort"

Pros: "After there was a problem with the plane once we had boarded, they were able to switch us to another plane at another gate. There was a short wait, and we only had a delay of 35 minutes."

Pros: "Flight and crew were wonderful. Perfectly smooth landing!"
Cons: "I really wonder about the boarding procedure... isn't "back to front" more efficient? What is this Comfort +, Main Cabin 1, Main Cabin 2, Basic thing? Is that supposed to make you feel better because you paid for a seat selection?!"

Pros: "Crew did a great job communicating what was happening while we were delayed"
Cons: "Compensation for our time or schedule mishaps."

Pros: "Great and faster"

Pros: "The crew was nice, and they served plenty of drinks. They even give a free light meal on the JFK-LAX flight. Decent in-flight entertainment options and free WiFi for use with WhatsApp and iMessage only."

Pros: "Yeah...spacious leg rooms."

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: "Free drink"
Cons: "Flight was over 30 min late to depart, which caused me to miss my connection flight. I haven’t been offered any sort of compensation for the inconvenience"

Pros: "Movies selection were good, snacks were pretty good"
Cons: "Why make someone pay for an upgraded seat that doesn’t recline? Terrible. Also delayed the flight by an hour, no explanation, and no idea if connections would be made or not. Had to run to my connection and they almost didn’t let me on. Smh"

Pros: "Good service. And good features. Enough space in seats in first class."

Pros: "On time. Seat upgraded seat to Delta Comfort plus, courteous flight crew, music before take off and landing."

Cons: "A bit warm on the plane and late taking off."

Pros: "I have no complaints. Not on"

Pros: "Almost everything."

Pros: "Two ladies working in the aisles were very pleasant and nice"
Cons: "Takeoff accelerated too much... nicer to have a longer launch process"

Pros: "Made the best of a overcrowded messy airport"

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"

Cons: "4 hour layover in ATL too long"

Pros: "The crew was organized and made us all laugh, and had a great personality."
Cons: "I upgraded my seat and paid extra for one with more room. And I wasn’t impressed with my upgrade, doesn’t feel like more leg than regular seats. Comfort was below average."

Pros: "Friendly crew with the usual high quality Delta product..."
Cons: "Premium passenger's should be boarded before families with children! Especially in Orlando where half the plane is children!"

Pros: "My flight was great. Boarding was easy and the seats were comfortable."

Pros: "Not applied"
Cons: "Not applied"

Pros: "Flight attendant Gillian Awesome. Crew was fun and made my kids first flight great."

Pros: "Boarding was easy"
Cons: "Small seats with very little room and no ability to recline"

Cons: "flight ticket very expensive."

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: "At least the plane didn't return to the gate and we departed 7 hours late."
Cons: "All the delays and gate changes with no explanations and only informed via text message. The weather wasn't even that bad. Missed the connecting flight to Bucharest and part of vacation time."

Pros: "Great service"

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

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

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: "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: "Boarding time and schedules were as expected or faster and other than the food incident, good attention from the flight crew."
Cons: "No choice during for lunch since the flight crew didn't have enough meals to cover the preferences of the first class travelers."

Cons: "Not only were there delays but they wouldn't allow me to upgrade to first class even though there were seats available, they said "oh with the package you purchased it's not available" Then why was I able to upgrade to first class for the other portion of my flight? The customer service was awful too, transferred 5 times on the phone for 20 mins to not get any help and for them to uncheck me in, I had to check in for my flight again."

Pros: "Efficient, comfortable, on time"

Pros: "The crew was attentive and kind, they even gave us snacks and a sandwich. I always think that for the price of the ticket snacks shouldn't have to be payed apart."

Pros: "crew was nice and friendly and the plane landed earlier than estimated."
Cons: "Middle seat was occupied on my flight."

Pros: "Attentive crew very appreciated!"

Cons: "More legroom"

Pros: "Seat very spacious, was given a extra legroom sit"
Cons: "My screen was not working properly. I didn’t ask for help as I had work to do so I didn’t need it."

Cons: "I was in the aisle seat and kept getting bumped into by the crew as they walked by. I leaned toward the middle seat but still got hit with the cart, people’s bums, their hips, etc. The flight landed at 4am, so I was tired and really wanted to sleep but couldn’t. Also, the AC was not working during the flight. We were all melting until we started descending. Then, while waiting to get off the plane, they turned off the AC completely. Bad move."

Pros: "Room in the seat was humane. Respectable leg room and not squished with fellow travelers. Boarding process orderly."
Cons: "Crew late to second leg of trip. Visibly tired from a long day."

Cons: "The crew was outstanding and the aircraft was new and comfy"

Cons: "Xx"

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

Pros: "Crew was good for the situation."
Cons: "Made me check a bag saying the overhead bins were full. When we got on the plane there was a huge amount of bin space. Wasted 45 minutes of my time waiting for a bag. Made us sit on the plane for two hours before takeoff even though they knew we were delayed upon boarding."

Cons: "Rude staff, not willing to help"

Cons: "The flight arrived early but sat on the runway for almost a half hour before we were able to exit the plane, causing quite a number of passengers, myself included to miss connecting flights! Not okay."

Pros: "Left on time. TSA boarding pass."
Cons: "1. Seats uncomfortable- too close together. Causing the person in the middle to lean on me. 2. The seat in front of me reclined into my space leaving me no room to extract my food tray and to cramped to work on my computer. 3. When buying a ticket no assigned seat. Paid 100.00 extra to select my seat and it didn’t allow me to choose anyway. When I went to select my return seat I had two choices- a middle seat or pay an additional 35.00 for a premium seat. 4. Had to pay 140.00 for luggage with no carry on (70.00 each way) 5. Not going to fly American anymore."

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

Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "Having to check my carryon even though I was in the 12th row. I saw some passengers putting two items in the overhead, which makes it unfair to others."

Cons: "I waited over 45 minutes for luggage to even begin to unload. Absolutely ridiculous"

Pros: "Great no complaints"

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Packed"

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

Pros: "The flight entertainment is really nice."
Cons: "Boarding seemed very chaotic as staff tried to get people to check bags at the last minute. My chair would not decline properly."

Pros: "From the time we got to the counter to boarding and then the flight, we were treated extremely well and with care. We were brought to the front of the line for preboarding. Everyone used our name and smiled as they provided service."
Cons: "The TSA agent was cold and it took a supervisor to ensure our needs were met."

Pros: "Efficient flight with friendly staff."

Cons: "Unable to access the internet. It was American flight, not Alaska flight"

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: "Great trip"

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

Pros: "Friendly staff."

Cons: "The first plane was broken and the pilot kept coming to brief the passwngers that it was broken but it may be fixed and so on, it would have been better if he had just let the counter clerk say the plane is delayed due to maintenance. As a customer, i dont need all the rambling explanation every ten minutes about the issue. I was told that we could board another flight leaving in 30 minutes, so i went to that gate, crew was not there and we boarded the plane. We had to de- board and wait for the crew. After the crew showed up, the rest of the flight was pretty standard."

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."

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

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: "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"

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!"

Cons: "They left my bag in RDU.."

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

Pros: "No delays, speedy boarding and off boarding."
Cons: "Nothing..it was great."

Pros: "Quick flight."
Cons: "Busy flight"

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."

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

Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "No movie anymore."

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

Cons: "Flight delayed three hours because of malfunctioning fuel valve . United needs to figure out how do identify the problem I had of time to allow more time to fix"

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: "I don't have a tablet to watch movies on. The entertainment didn't accommodateven me."

Cons: "Seats are too small no leg room"

Pros: "After all these years, still love United!"
Cons: "Loved everything!"

Pros: "LOVE the plane! CLEAN!! New and BEAUTIFUL!!!!"
Cons: "Sat and listened the WHOLE trip except when drinks were being served to the private lives of the flight attendants. The didn't pick up trash so everyone had to place their ice and semi full drinks in the nets when it got bumpy for the landing. I watched the flight attendants the whole time- they got paid to converse about everything- here is proof- one flight attendant was complaining that she only had 4 days of vacation and that she never gets called to work- I think I can guess why- and that she has talked to Kaitlyn- I think that was her bosses name?? But she wasn't given more hours. I wish I had ear plugs. The African American lady was so unkind and uncaring. She scollded another African American lady for coming to the back to throw away her trash. She hurt the lady's feelings and made her mad too. The folks on the plane seemed to be too much of a deflection to their personal conversations, but they were successful at ignoring everyone. We had to be careful to not spill liquid on our carry on etc and not hit the cups and such with our knees on the way out. I usually fly Southwest and want to write a letter telling them how great their service is! I apologized to the cleaning crew as the flight attendants told us to not worry about our drinks"the cleaning crew" will get it. How unprofessional to treat others that way. Stop talking! You can get A WHOLE lot done when you aren't sharing your personal life and opinions with each other!"

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."

Cons: "Having to board and put away carry on thinking the flight will depart soon and then finding out within 15 mins when everyone have boarded and settle that the maintenance delay requires that everyone must evacuate the plane with their carry on luggages. We waited at the gate for nearly 2 hours because the flight clerk told us not to roam far due to continuous updates... It started out as a 30 min delay and ended as a 2 hour delay with gate and plane changes. Had we known it was a 2 hr delay we would have been able to go use the restroom and go eat in between without worrying that the flight will depart."

Pros: "The seats were large and comfortable"
Cons: "I had to ask to get a drink, and was never offered food. Granted it was a red eye, but I was never even offered a cookie. I expected more after paying for first class. Plus, since it was an older plane, it didn't have the power ports they advertise. The guy sitting next to me didn't want to watch tv, but it didnt work and the screen wouldn't go off. They didn't offer him anything as a apology."

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

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: "They were on time."
Cons: "The cabin temperature never went below 80 degrees. Seats were very, very small. Especially when seated by a 300 lb person"

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

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

Pros: "no delays. quick flight & boarding"

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: "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."

Pros: "Take off and landing was 15 mins ahead of schedule."
Cons: "Legroom on the plane was cramped."

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

Cons: "The snacks where gross."

Cons: "Waiting in S.F. for flight to board. Crew announces flight will be 1 hour and ten minutes late. A few minutes later, announces the pilot is on his way and may be a half an hour late. The gate number was not announced until about a half an hour before boarding. We finally boarded and was told that co-pilot was not at airport. It was a terrible experience with United."

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."

Pros: "II like the speed of the overall flight. The group was boarded promptly and we leave right one time. Everything was efficient and done in a quick and timely manner."
Cons: "There's no entertainment in the plane whatsoever, but it's understandle. Flights for United are generally cheaper than most so I don't expect anything fancy or entertaining."

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: "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: "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."

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"

Pros: "location"
Cons: "never depart or arrive on time. can be hours late for no reason other than unorganized"

Cons: "When you check in they charge you $125.00 for your bags that sucks will never fly Frontier again"

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

Pros: "No vegetarian options or non-gluten options for food."

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 flight was long and the space was very tight. It made it difficult to move. I'm sure it wasn't the cause, but I ended up with a blood clot after this trip."

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!"

Pros: "we arrived on time"
Cons: "Frontier no longer has free beverages, or tv. Very cramped seating! Baggage fees and seating fees are ridiculous. Couldn't hear crew during boarding."

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"

Cons: "The nickel and dime business approach that Frontier has adopted and their shady way of collecting means they should replace every animal on their plane with a leech. "Customer service" showed no interest in HELPING me, and no empathy when they finally did. They just wanted me to move along. Crew on the flight was fine but the seat was awful. I felt like I was sitting on a bench. But for just $25 more...."

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"
