Pros: "Nice quiet flight"
Cons: "Crew member attitude specifically regarding passengers in the emergency rows"
Cons: "Headphone port was plugged full of something"
Pros: "The crew was great. However I have had issues with take offs and landings with Alaska the last two times I’ve flown with them. Literally have been stuck for more than an hour on the tarmac both times."
Cons: "I think that Family’s with young children need to have their own area in the plane. I was screamed at and kicked by children for most of this flight. The extra hour on the tarmac was torture."
Pros: "Love the entertainment options with my own device, food, and power at the seat"
Cons: "Entertainment was disrupted. Departure was delayed by delayed departure of the previous flight without enough explanation to those of us waiting to board"

Pros: "Able to get earlier flight to ORD Did offer complimentary baggage service to destination"
Cons: "Had to pay additional $25 each for earlier flight then had seats behind a dog and toddler both unrestrained and noisy during a 3 1/2 hour flight. WiFi connection was very slow. Only water and one pack of crackers - on travel West via Delta, we had at least 2 offers of variety drinks and snacks."
Pros: "When I checked in for the return flight my kids and I were sitting in other rows and they came to me to change our seats. They also have the kids extra cookies."
Cons: "I had nothing to complain about"
Pros: "Great crew. Boarding process."
Pros: "Great customer service, fast boarding, media available was good."
Cons: "No outlets to charge electronics. Plane itself seemed a bit on the older end."
Cons: "No free food was offered. Movies were not free."
Pros: "timeliness, courteous, comfortable, charging outlets at every seat."
Cons: "weak movie selection"
Pros: "The Go Go entrainment app is great! Also, best flight crew in the sky."
Cons: "I fell asleep before I could order a drink."

Pros: "I liked the food options and the entertainment. Staff was really friendly too,"
Pros: "Boarding in order of seat numerical order (big numbered rows board first)"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Slow boarding and deplaning."
Pros: "The flight was comfortable"
Cons: "Everything was good"
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Put on an American carrier despite having booked with Alaskan. Told the wrong gate. Then told the incorrect boarding time at the correct gate. Missed flight due to gate keeper. Had to gheck my back on the next flight despite ample room to carry on. EVERYONE that works for American Airlines is incompetent, rude and terrible. I WILL NEVER FLY YOUR AIRLINE AGAIN. Your company should be sold off and every employee fired."
Pros: "Fruit platter. On time. Efficient. Professional Plane was very clean"
Cons: "Seattle airport first security man grumpy. Not helpful. No reflection on Alaska airlines however"
Pros: "It was a redeye flight and everything went smooth. I went to sleep on the plane and did not have any food, so I cannot truly rate that portion."
Pros: "Friendly cabin crew, wonderful food, spacious aircraft, wonderful option to get a tablet to watch a movie. Loved being able to plug in at each seat with USB charger etc."
Pros: "The aircraft was comfortable. I just had a standard coach seat and it was as roomy as other airlines premium economy seats. Alaska airlines had reasonably priced food and drinks, and the entire flight crew was friendly and professional. I also liked the free GoGo texting feature."
Cons: "For some reason the airplane left the gate about 40 minutes late. It was also very difficult to hear the announcements from the flight deck. The only announcement that came through loud and clear was the spiel for the Alaska Airlines credit card."
Pros: "Boarding was efficient, seat was comfortable. I appreciate that food and drinks were offered often."
Cons: "One particular flight attendant purposely ignored me when I tried to ask for cream and sugar for my coffee which she did not offer when handing out drinks. Then she looked right at me twice as I tried to give her my garbage which she was collecting, but she ignored me again and left me holding my garbage until a different flight attendant came much later and took it without incident. It made me wonder if it was because I looked Asian- she was helpful and polite to the white women next to me. I was polite and was not being difficult in any way. I'm half white, but was often treated like this in Illinois when I was growing up. She should have been professional and if she had I would have rated the trip as excellent."
Pros: "I have been very pleased flying Alaska Airlines."
Cons: "This flight was rather turbulent but not the fault of the airline. Still on time."
Pros: "Great service. Offered me a seat switch on full flt! Internet was tough and not working well but gogo almost always is. That was minor. Easy nice flight."
Pros: "Same as above."
Pros: "My flight was on time and checking in was made super easy and fast. One of the flights was a bit delayed but that was the weather so I didn't even mind because the staff was attentive."
Pros: "The crew was friendly."
Cons: "I was not allowed to use the restroom when we still had 20 minutes or so to land. As they were collecting final garbage, the restrooms were locked and I was not allowed to use them. I can understand cutting off the use of them once the flight crew is seated but they were still walking around and I really had to go. I don't recall a warning for this. If there was an announcement it was not audible over the hum of the engine. I'm very dissatisfied about that final part of my experience."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly"
Cons: "ran out of many meal types"
Pros: "Your typical airlines for check-in, baggage etc but I was pleasantly surprised when our seat assignments were together for the return trip w/out having to select them. Baggage was extremely fast on the outbound flight but took a few minutes on the return flight."
Cons: "Again, as with most airlines, the seating room leaves a little bit to be desired but the leg room was adequate for a 6'4" man."
Pros: "Everyone was very friendly and they made sure to fit all carry on bags in the cabin rather than having any of them checked. Boarding from the rear of the plane was a different approach, but a nice change."
Pros: "Plenty of overhead bin space; no excessive announcements; ultra clean cabin; flight deck explained the lengthy ORD taxi time to the arrival gate"
Cons: "FA's appeared to be rushed during boarding. I was asked to put up my tray table, and I spilled all of my French fries on the floor as the flight attendant watched. I had to leave the mess all over the floor. My seat neighbor offered to help clean the mess. I cleaned it up on my own with a safety information card as a scoop and dumped the mess into a puke bag. The flight attendant should have offered a trash bag as there was plenty of time before takeoff. I flew for your airline as a flight attendant for almost four years, and I know AS flight attendants are among the best."
Pros: "Both my flights were great, and especially my outgoing flight from Chicago, the attendants at the gate were amazing. I don't think I've ever met more helpful, nice attendants--nothing seemed rushed, and they were helpful and happy. Similarly, the attendants on the flight were really nice and cheerful. Flights left on time, and I got in early on my first flight. I've flown a lot in the last year, but this was one of my better experiences with an airline. Check-in was really easy too."
Cons: "I requested an aisle seat because I have broad shoulders and a knee that hurts if I can't extend it. EVERY TIME a particular stewardess would pass, she'd SLAM into my shoulder, with no care or apology. This was very hard to enjoy a drink, or sleep, or do anything on the flight."
Pros: "easy check in. (emergency seat with no extra cost) kind staff. board on time. but not declined seat, new plane with two power outlet."
Cons: "See above."
Pros: "Straightforward. Love that Starbucks coffee is offered! Also love that you can charge devices. The inflight entertainment option works for me; I usually come prepared but I was happy to pay to watch a movie, although the cost seemed unnecessarily high."
Cons: "There was quite a bit of wait at boarding time while standby seating was sorted out. I wasn't sure why ticketed customers could not board on schedule; instead, everyone was standing around at the scheduled board time while names were announced, etc."
Pros: "Crew always has a smile. Smooth boarding process"
Pros: "Plane was new, seemed clean, staff was ok, attentive. Comfortable for the most part. Restroom was clean."
Cons: "For the very high price, they didn't even assign me a seat. I received an electronic notification to go to the ticketing counter. I carry-on always, and I had to check in formally. Which was a waste of time, they told me they overbooked me and there should be a seat, but I would have to check at the gate for a seat. Needing to get on this flight, I hurried to the gate. An hour and a half of wondering later...No one was at the gate until right before boarding. A little frustrating. The rep was very nice, but I got that lovely middle seat."
Pros: "The staff was friendly and efficient"
Pros: "Seats, beer selection, very friendly staff I will be flying again if I get the chance and I never say that anymore about other carriers."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Nathing"
Pros: "Boarding was fast, seats were rather comfortable, the crew was attentive"
Pros: "Every airline has the same basic situation to manage. When I fly Alaska, I always feel that everyone who works for Alaska works to do the best that they can and pass it on to their customers. I hope that they continue growing. They would be my first choice to fly everywhere."
Pros: "sat in exit row"
Cons: "no blanket available"
Pros: "Crew was awesome!"
Cons: "The boarding did not go on time. An announcement about why would have been nice. Still made it on the flight on time."
Pros: "Very nice plane"
Pros: "great everything!"
Pros: "Accommodating a lot more than American Airlines."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "No leg room for 6’6” person."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "13 hour delay"
Cons: "Filthy plane, and delayed too long"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and efficient. Flight was pretty smooth."
Cons: "On time departure would have been nice. 2.5 hours late."
Cons: "Announcements were too loud in earphones (could damage ear drums) and entertainment was turned off while waiting 30 min for the gate to open."
Pros: "The crew really kept us updated on the many delays."
Cons: "There were SO many delays and they kept changing. At one point we got on and off the plane."
Pros: "The crew was amazing."
Cons: "Cleanliness"
Cons: "We experienced a one hour ground delay at Sea-Tac which was unrelated to our airline. The pilot kept the passengers informed with timely updates, and we finally departed about when the pilot predicted we'd get away."
Pros: "Everything was good except boarding was delayed several times and even after everyone had boarded. We arrived 2 hours behind originally scheduled time as the result."
Cons: "Delta needs to try harder to minimize flight delays."
Pros: "I was upgraded to Comfort+ and the seat next to me was left vacant. That was a great flight!"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The seats were ok."
Cons: "The flight was delayed over 3 hours so I missed my connection in Chicago to Seattle. I’m now stick in Chicago overnight and have to be on a 6 am flight tomorrow. The Delta staff at LaGuaurdia was extremely rude and not helpful at all. Hate Delta......"
Pros: "The food was improved and the seat was comfortable."
Pros: "Boarding was quick"
Cons: "No entertainment, plane was small"
Cons: "First delay notification: 1 hour 20 minutes 1 hour later, Second delay notification: 3 hours 15 minutes 2 hours later: Third delay notification: 3 hour 50 minutes Fourth delay notification: 4 hours 25 minutes Fifth delay notification: 4 hour 32 minutes No explanation for reason. Last time flying Delta."
Pros: "Excellent service in most every respect! Boarding was easy, accommodations were quite ample, food was great, and the entertainment was plentiful."
Cons: "Slight problem with making my seat into a bed, which wasn't fixable. Movies were good, except for the trailers before and after each, which seemed to take forever! Didn't get the seats my wife and originally booked with China Southern/Delta, but the substitution was quite adequate! Problems with checking in on flights, as neither airline seemed to be able to deal with this split ticket! But they tried very hard to make thing up to us, which goes a long way to making us feel like we are valued customers!"
Pros: "The service and the crew were extremely courteous polite and professional ."
Cons: "As it is an all flights just not enough leg room and a very tight chair."
Cons: "Missed connecting flight because the first flight was delayed by 2.5 hours. I didn’t get the comfort seat I paid for because of this and was not given a refund for it."
Cons: "Plane journey awful. Speaker had a loud buzzing noise all the time so never heard a word bad landing. Rattling plane Very cold."
Pros: "Clean plane, the seat felt roomy. Smooth ride and the captain communicated clearly."
Cons: "It felt super hot and I wish there was food included in such a long flight."
Pros: "I think they flew so fast. We could land almost on time even though we departed a hour late. Airplane was new and clean."
Cons: "Boarding was chaos. They overbooked 25? 45? Anyway, they are in panic. They tried to request ppl to take next day flight by giving away 300 gift card etc. the ppl who were told there are no seats upset and arguing at the gate. Flight was delayed for one hour. Once we are on airplane, they are still shuffling seats around, so ppl cannot move forward. Just standing there for 10mins waiting for things to settle. Flight attendants did not give us a headphone. (I have a headphone for iPhone X so I could not connect it to their entertaiment system.)"
Cons: "Over an hour delay before boarding due to supposedly bad weather. Because flight was overbooked they were offering $400 gift card to change to standby on another flight. If you didn’t make that flight (evening), you’d be confirmed on a flight the following morning with one stop in Detroit (we booked a nonstop to Chicago). Uh, no thanks. Then to top it off, we’ve landed and been told that it will be at least an hour before we can deplane due to no availability at the gate (it’s 1145 pm right now). All this plus their new policy of not allowing us to select our seats because we bought the cheapest tickets. Really Delta? You go ahead and cater to the rich and I’ll choose to fly with another airline."
Pros: "This was our first time flying Delta and it was a very pleasurable experience. Boarding was very straight forward and the seats allocated comfortable. A surprise for us was being asked if we would like to move seats from the back of the aircraft to Comfort Economy (we think it was to do with weight balance! but appreciated very much none the less). The flight attendants were very professional and helpful, as you would hope all attendants on all airlines would be. We'd gladly fly Delta again anytime."
Pros: "Aside from the issue where we had to deplane and wait for another plane, the flight and crew were great."
Cons: "The delay from the plane problem."
Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "The flight was 4 hours delayed"
Pros: "I flew on a basic economy fare (I understand the restrictions) and was seated in Economy Comfort +, so that was appreciated."
Cons: "I could see on the Fly Delta app that I had been placed in seat 10B, but neither the app nor my boarding pass gave me a group to board with, so I assumed that I needed to board with group 3, which necessitated gate-checking my rollerboard bag. Only when I approached the gate to board did I notice on the info screen that I had been "upgraded" to Comfort + and granted boarding with the Sky Priority group. I wish this had been clearer so I could have avoided waiting to board and gate-checking my bag. Minor inconvenience but room for improvement on Delta's part."
Pros: "Nothing really"
Cons: "Flight delay further to the 30 minutes additional 20 min due to crew being not there"
Cons: "Too tight and seats not comfortable."
Pros: "Almonds"
Cons: "Seat, did not get upgraded"
Pros: "The Delta people were solicitous, efficient and brilliant the whole way through. We had not a bit of trouble. Our first class seats were comfortable, but with the supplied blanket, pillow and poor air conditioning it was a hot flight. The cabin personnel were wonderful as per usual, and my tasty gin and tonic soothed any discontent. I wish I could fly this way all the time!"
Cons: "The private contractor handling wheelchair assistance was terrible. A Delta employee theorized that they do not pay enough to attract and retain personnel. Our pre-arranged chair was not there, multiple calls by our Delta assistant finally got us a ride to the chair holding area, but after about 45 minutes we gave up and shuffled off to the security area on foot. Thank goodness my hubby is mobile enough for that to have been an option. When we abandoned our wait we were still 4th in line for an attendant to push the chair. If Delta has any responsibility in this it would be in the retention and compensation for the private contractor."
Pros: "We were traveling with a toddler and infant but put in different row because the tickets were purchased separately. Gate staff promptly put us together and even bumped us up to delta comfort. Was a very pleasant trip. Thanks delta!"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and attentive, and the flights were punctual. I was assigned a good seat, and I appreciated the meal, as i was going to arrive in Mexico very late. I also enjoyed the entertainment options."
Cons: "I really have no negative comments."
Pros: "Plane arrived early"
Cons: "They board the front of the plane first, meaning the aisles get clogged up slowing down the process. Also, staff kept insisting pre boarding that more people needed to check their bags because there wasn't enough overhead bin space, but there were plenty of bins not full by take off."
Pros: "Food selection and quality were fine. I also enjoyed the entertainment options. Seat area was comfortable and spacious."
Cons: "The flight attendants were uniformly rude and nasty to passengers from start to finish. As I boarded, I asked for a piece of art to be stored in the wardrobe compartment. This was treated as an inconvenience. During and after boarding, flight attendants addressed passengers rudely when encouraging them to take their seats in a timely fashion. Later, when my seat mate politely asked a FA to repeat the food options, she asked, "Excuse me?" several times and seemed very irritated to have to repeat the choices for him. Also, near the end of the flight, a pillow was on the ground and a FA asked those seated in my row to pick it up. We responded that it wasn't ours and she said something to the effect of, "Oh yeah? So how did it get there?" (Maybe because someone else dropped it and we didn't notice?) The FAs seemed irritated to serve passengers at all. Each time they passed through for beverage or meal service, I felt like I was imposing on them. I have never witnessed anything quite like it. Makes me wonder why they were all so upset and and felt it appropriate to speak and act disrespectfully toward customers. (Delta, do you have any insights?) I hope they all got a good night's rest after that haul."
Pros: "The flight was fine, attendants we're good, entertainment options are great."
Cons: "Boarding. It was probably the worst I've seen. A shared intercom system between two gates (b7 and b7a), boarding flights around the same time and our flight beginning portions of pre boarding with no announcements caused mass confusion. Passengers lining up to go before they should, bumping into each other, no info or corrections over the intercom. The gate agent yelling at people to move aside. Overall terrible gate agents and terrible set up. Flight crew was great though."
Pros: "everything was very nice"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The fact they wasted two days of my trip with my son travelling from the U.S. to China because they didn't know about transit visa regulations. And so far they offered a 75 dollar voucher for participating merchants. Unacceptable"
Cons: "As a Platinum AFK/KLM Skyteam member I was NOT allowed to use the Delta Lounge. On the flight the meal choice was poor and the staff were not really geared to serving regular clients. The movie choice was poor. I expected better!"
Pros: "Free entertainment and free food was unexpected and very welcomed, especially given the trend of charging for more and more features."
Pros: "Accident on way to airport, so I showed up to check bags 45 minutes before flight time. They said they couldn't get the bag to the plane..in 45 minutes? So, they put on the next flight... 6 hours later. Said I could fly without the bag... uh, no thanks. They would not look for alternatives without charging me more. Flight attendants were crabby, otherwise everything was fine. I flew British Airways a few months ago. Night and day. Seriously. Delta does not even approach having good service. There was no comparison to British Air--- Delta is not in the same league."
Pros: "Airline stewards were very friendly and pleasant."
Cons: "We booked with Delta, but were put on Air France. Even though we had our boarding passes in hand we had to wait in long, slow line for baggage tags because they would not print from kiosk. There was minimal Air France staff on duty serving thousands of passengers during busy season (July). While the lines grew larger, the staff was reduced from 4 to 2. Another long, slow line for customs, another long slow line for security=Charles De Gaulle airport was awful. We arrived at the airport 4 hours before our departure time and got to our boarding gate with no time to spare."
Cons: "*Again, my first choice of main off the menu, in Delta One, had run out. *Not a fan of the Delta One seats."
Cons: "The air conditioning was broken so it was sweltering the whole time. Staff didn't even mention it or apologize. No leg room. Bags took longer than 20 minutes to arrive but we didn't make a fuss since we were just glad to be finished with Delta. I'll never fly Delta again even if it costs me more."
Pros: "We had a whole row of 3 to our family, so we could put the armrests up & the kids just laid down in our row (on me, & each other) and slept most of the flight. The flight crew was very understanding and helpful with my kids who were just with me on an intl flight "daddy duty.""
Cons: "Since it was a flight from Seoul, Korea to Seattle; it would've been nicer if all the movies had Korean subtitles-- my 4-yo boy who only speaks Korean, couldn't make it through more than 15 mins of a movie because he couldn't understand (of course, some of that is due to age & short attention-span). But he kept saying, "I hate English" in Korean while trying to pick a movie. Also, I'm 6'2"; so while it was nice having the whole row for my kids to lay down in-- I was cramped and uncomfortable the whole flight, even moreso with Delta's seats being closer together than on other international carriers I've flown."
Pros: "Delta made sure my husband and I had seats together and my husband was thrilled to have a window seat. We took off and arrived earlier than scheduled so we didn't have to run to catch our connecting flight."
Cons: "Everything was perfect. Nothing negative to report."
Pros: "Comfortable seats and incredible kind staff"
Cons: "No food, drinks, or entertainment. But it was an extremely short flight."
Pros: "empty plane"
Cons: "food"
Cons: "Hour delay before departure; 30 minute delay after landing before we reached gate; 15 minute delay to get carry on bags!"
Pros: "Good crew, appeared to work we’ll together."
Cons: "Could not figure out how to plug in ac for charging devices. Should have some educational label somewhere on that."
Pros: "Crew was efficient and pleasant making for a good experience."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "We didn’t crash and die. That’s the only positive."
Cons: "Before we boarded I listened to a couple described how they always went ahead in line at boarding because no one ever stopped them. They described how they waited until group 3 was called and then went right through. While we were waiting, we watched them do it again. If you need to cram people into tiny spaces to be profitable, then you cannot allow them to make it worse by putting back their seats. I spent 90 minutes with a seat back jammed into my chest. We were ignored when handing out snacks, probably because we were invisible behind the seats pushed in our faces. It was one of the most miserable flights I’ve experienced."
Pros: "Flight attendants were two hours late"
Pros: "Attentive crew. Traveling with 2 seniors in their 80’s. Thank you."
Cons: "Nothing. Perfect."
Pros: "Great crew. Falafel meal was delish."
Cons: "My seat was broken and didn’t recline. I booked first class bc of a bad back, so I count on that. Salad was wilted and gross. Plane didn’t have plug ins for phone! Entertainment system didn’t work well- movie kept buffering. Sky texting wouldn’t work either."
Cons: "The DVD/ movies was having an issue.., couldn’t play.. I had to ask to have it reset a few times."
Cons: "As a handicaped disabled not able to walk and should be using a wheel chair,as I know from my many previous travels with other companies like lufthanza, klm..etc, I used to be the first traveller to go to the air craft when loading it to take off and the last one who would be leaving it after landing. Even when going through the check and security points I used to go in a special route especially for the handicaped but going with all other normal travelers lines with such amount of time waiting and crowdness is completely inconvenient. what happened through the trip was quit different , going with the travelers or after when they are boarding the craft make it very hard and time consuming , Wish you take care of it, as it's a very important handicaped service. Thank you for taking the time to read my comment"
Cons: "Missed the flight"
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "Before the flight boarded the crew had to be paved. They were busy chatting at a different gate while the whole flight had to wait for them. No sense of urgency. Very unprofessional. We had the front seat in first class. All night long the crew were talking loudly- difficult to sleep. They should be conscious of the passengers"
Pros: "I liked the room."
Cons: "There was no entertainment. Could not get seats together."
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."
Pros: "Flight was comfortable and enjoyable. Entertainment was great lots of films to choose. Service by the flight crew was excellent"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "This was a nighmare!"
Cons: "My flight Paris/London/Manchester?Chicago was the mos impleasant experience I ever had. On July the flight was schedule for 9...pm then delayed for two hours because of a fire, other passengers said, in London. At around 11pm, we were asked to line up for boarding. We stayed on line for an hour and fnally to be told the flight was cancelled. We were treated less than animals by British Airway. No ACCOMODATION!!!!!!!! No ACCOMODATION!!!!!!! We slept on benches at the airport. To be fair to you, I will not recommend British Airway to anyone."
Pros: "The comfort of the plane and the continued update on my flight delay."
Cons: "The flight was delayed but no fault of American."
Cons: "The vegetarian meal is always vegan, I miss the dairy :("
Cons: "I didn’t take my outbound so they cancelled my return flight without notifying me. I had to pay $200 to buy my seat back. American is about as bad as spirit.."
Pros: "Entertainment on screens"
Cons: "The gate agent made us starting in boarding group 6 out of 9 to check sizes of bags in the size box and she got into a verbal fight with another passenger. One guy told her she could board but the gate agent said no it didn't fit and she couldn't board. Then the agent claimed she had to gate check her bag and claimed there were no overhead spaces left. So everyone after that had to gate check. When I boarded there were at least 8 empty bins and I had not even gotten to my seat in row 22. The gate agent lied and slowed down the entire boarding process because she want to win a fight and show dominance over a passenger."
Pros: "Great aircraft, UK staff kindly assisted to get us family seating near each other"
Cons: "A passenger caused a delay in security, and as I'm rushing for the gate, the agent closed the door and told me I couldn't board. She then marked me as a no-show, while she was standing right next front of her. I had to spend the next 4 hrs on the phone, trying to get my tickets sorted out. Then, upon arriving at Heathrow,... No luggage. They told me it was still in Chicago. Upon finally receiving my bags, I find them full of sawdust and sand, and several items damaged. I will NEVER fly American Airlines again, and I will highly recommend to my friends and family to avoid them like them plague. Horrible service! Nothing but a run-around and not once did the agents apologise, even after admitting that my problems on this journey were due to a mistake made by one of their agents."
Cons: "For the planes first flight of the day the crew deicing process caused a 75 minute delay. On return flight at 10:15 pmwe waited on the runway for over 30 minutes because the ground crew wasn’t ready. There were no other planes in or out anytime near our landing"
Pros: "seats comfy, seemed like a newer plane, crew was lovely."
Cons: "usual complaints about domestic flights - not having free headphones and not having free snacks."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Middle seat"
Cons: "Luggage allowance policy was not clear, so that they can try to charge passengers extra fee. Airline blames on one another when it comes to connecting flight if we purchased a one stop flight"
Cons: "The crew waited until we where onboard about to leave to defrost the wings, making us 50 min late. Half of the plane missed their connecting flights"
Pros: "Great service!"
Pros: "Current movie selections"
Cons: "The seats are cramped. They served the final meal very close to the actual landing. The legroom is not comfortable enough for an average size adult. i asked the attendant at the gate for a seat change but never heard back."
Pros: "I would like if for my return from Paris to Chicago, Chicago Seattle I would be greeted by the personal and offered to flight first class without extra charge to compensate for the bad experience on my way going in. Thank you"
Cons: "I was told I would be able to choose the seats only 24 hours before the flight by going online. I tried to choose the seats online but could not have access to the site. I then called the number provided to ask for more help, and was told that I could then only choose the seats at the check in time. I was at the airport 2 hours before the flight schedule to book my seat and was told them that I could only choose the seats at the gate. Once I got at the gate I asked the person to please give me a seat at the aisle for medical reasons but after waiting until the boarding process had started I was giving a middle seat. Not only I was treated as a stand by passenger that had not purchased the tickets I was put nt on group 8 and at the moment of boarding the gate personal aggressively grabbed my carry-on bag because they insisted there was no more spaces in the compartment above heads. Once I got inside of airplane I saw many empty compartments available for carry-on luggage. I wish I had not purchased my ticket with Iberia Airlines operated by American Airlines. It was not a good, pleasant experience and do not recommend. I wil certainly avoid in the future and not travel this way another time. Thanks"
Cons: "Our bag was never transferred to the continuing flight. Then it took a week to catch up with us. When we complained to American they just passed the buck to the final carrier, but I think the mistake was theirs."
Pros: "Boarding and flight were on time."
Pros: "The air stewardesses were extremely cordial and continuously asked if the passengers needed anything many times during the flight. It's a small gesture but I appreciated it very much. Free wifi (for movies/in-flight entertainment) was also a plus."
Pros: "Food was good, crew was friendly, cordial which is not good at all on flights by United Airlines, Delta American Airlines and Air Canada. Flight from Miami-Sao Paulo was nice and no too long as when I fly through Toronto by Air Canada or through Chicago by USA airlines."
Cons: "Flight was delayed because of weather. No fault of carrier."
Cons: "No screens, no wifi"
Cons: "They had no record of this portion of my trip, after a few people checked they found the Chicago to Ammon part so they added me onto a flight from Washington to Chicago. All should of went well from there but they sent me to the wrong gate. Luckily I just made it to the correct gate for boarding. Upon arriving at Chicago there was no one available to provide information on how to get to Royal Jordanian gates. Also on my AA portion of my flight coming into The U S in New York the flight was cancelled and I was told the next flight Available was next day (18hr delay) at the other NY airport. I had to have someone drive from D.C. (My destination) to pick me up"
Pros: "Flight was smooth and comfortable."
Cons: "I didn't find the crew very friendly and often don't on AA. Boarding was difficult as the agent was difficult to hear/understand."
Pros: "Customer Service at SEA was great. we were checking bags directly to Madrid and they were very helpful"
Cons: "I had paid for a Bulk head seat Row 7. But since we had a in Cabin pet, my wife was moved down to Row 18 and a much smaller seat. I need to get a refund for the price I paid."
Pros: "The staff were amazing. Very accommodating and with great dispositions. Boarding was easy."
Cons: "For an international flight the seats were extremely tiny and the plane itself only had a few tv screens posted in the middle of the plane so everyone had to watch the same thing."
Pros: "The crew was nice and attentive. The pilot came over the speaker to tell us about our flight. We made it in early!"
Cons: "The movie shown during the flight was a bit odd. Not sure where it came from but it was not overly entertaining."
Cons: "We haven't left yet"
Pros: "Very efficient boarding, comfortable coach seats, good crew"
Cons: "No food! except pretzels and sandwiches for purchase. I didn't purchase a sandwich but the two guys next to me did and were both vocal about their disappointment with what they received for $9. And they were strangers who didn't talk to each other the rest of the time, so I think they meant it. Also, entertainment: they had a movie on the pop-down screens, and 4 free movies to stream to your device using onboard wifi, as well as 2 tv shows. So maybe I'm being harsh. But it was a transcontinental flight and they didn't have headrest screens loaded with movies. Is this only for international flights? The movies were bad, or at least not appealing to me ('Keanu' and 'Zoolander 2'). It was possible to pay for additional movies, but who wants to do that? It was sort of the EasyJet model, where you get good basic service but pay for everything additional that one gets for free on Delta. Maybe that was reflected in the price I paid for the ticket, but I was expecting that AA would be in the same league as United and Delta. One nice perk: free wifi for T-Mobile customers, including me."
Pros: "It was very inexpensive and on time. And it was much more comfortable than those budget airlines like Spirit, Frontier, etc."
Cons: "The snack choice was unappealing."
Pros: "They switched my flight promptly when I missed my connection."
Cons: "I missed my connection for no apparent reasons. When asked for compensation they said there was nothing they could do and cited reasons Regarding the boarding and deboarding of a special needs passenger."
Pros: "The air stewardess was friendly and courteous, the meal were tasty and sufficient."
Cons: "The flight came in early but we had to wait over thirty minutes for luggage to arrive."
Pros: "The flight crew were really good and efficient. The plane was a new 737 and was beautiful and clean when we boarded."
Cons: "The boarding was rough. Very slow. Too many folks with carry ons. Pressure from the gate crew was put on those last in line to hurry to make gate departure time although it was fthe folks on the plane with carry ons that were keeping us from boarding. I paid the money to check a bag but folks with over sized carry on got their bags checked for free at the plane entrancewhen they ran out of room in the cabin. They ran out of room before more than half the plane was boarded."
Cons: "Fat constantly moving man next to me"
Pros: "How comfortable the seats were. How nice and pleasing the crew were to the passengers"
Cons: "How long it takes to be seated. I suggest you seat passengers by seat (after the people in wheelchairs and with baby carriages). First class first then whoever sits behind them and do on. Which basically is being seated by your seat number. Seat 1A first then seat 1B and so on"
Pros: "The price was right! Connection in Chicago was a little tight but overall a good flight."

4 hour delay, so booked us on another flight that then was also late, missed our connecting flight. Stuck in Newark for another 24 hours until they could rebook us to finally get home.

Cons: "If the flight left on time - I missed my connection"
Pros: "United crew were incredibly kind and accommodating. We had 2 lap babies and a 3 year old. They took our carry-on suitcases and checked them through to our destination without charge -- freeing up valuable hands in the process. They also arranged seats to make sure there were enough air masks for us and our 2 lap children. Our 3 year old had his own seat. In doing so, they moved me and 2 others so that my wife and I were in adjacent rows and there was an empty seat next to each of us (where our babies ended up sleeping). They were very kind and helped us in every way. Overall this was the best experience I've ever had on a flight, period."
Pros: "I was asleep for most of the flight so I missed any food & did not use the internet. I consider an uneventful flight as a great experience :)"
Cons: "At 1 am, SEA TAC had a 20 minute delay for air traffic!"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats for such a long flight, my seat didn’t recline, space was limited"
Pros: "at check in - check baggage was quickly serviced"
Pros: "Nice flight attendants, clean cabin"
Cons: "Flight delayed 2 1/2 hours. Arrived late to destination"
Pros: "Gates for connecting were close and even with delay, I made it on time."
Cons: "Flight delay, that made the short connection even shorter"
Pros: "On time, courtesy"
Cons: "Seating space, cramped"
Pros: "They had blankets waiting on our seats for us, which was really nice!"
Cons: "The seats were horribly uncomfortable and hardly budged when "reclined". It made for a miserable red eye experience."
Cons: "we provided our own movies since there are no longer provided; Please bring back the movie screens & headphone jacks!"
Pros: "I know it’s out of the hands of the airline but we were delayed due to weather. Luckily they booked us on another flight but it was the next morning."
Cons: "I know there are clauses saying that United does not have to do anything to accommodate you if it’s bad weather but we did not get anything for our inconvenience. Most airlines will seem to help you with hotels or food and whatnot if you had to be rebooked. We ended up booking a hotel through the Hotel Tonight for a great rate although it’s unrefundable. Turns out we get to the airport and our original connecting flight was severely delayed and we would have made it on to that flight. So either way we were stuck with a loss."
Pros: "Quick and friendly staff"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seating"
Cons: "No leg room very uncomfortable seating"
Cons: "Majorly delayed, barely made my connecting flight, My poor body was so confused - "WHY are we up right now, WHY are we running so hard and carrying much weight." I felt exactly like I was finishing a cross country race trying to make my connection, then the gate agents made me check my bags, I'm looking at completely vacant overhead compartments and will never fly this airline ever again. No food. No drinks. Rude and disriptive attendants - let us sleep!"
Pros: "Prompness"
Cons: "The Stewadess obviously had a horrible cold or laryngitis. It was horrible to hear her on speaker. Also makes us Concerned that we might catch what she had!"
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "No problems"
Pros: "When I booked this flight four months ago, nothing indicated that these seats would not recline (since they are in front of an exit). That's not something I knew and that fact made it a bit brutal on an overnight flight, especially when the people in front of us could recline their seats. It should be easy and reasonable to add such info in the booking process."
Cons: "There is just something very bare-bones about flying now: modest food or drink, little effort to entertain except on your own equipment. It's functional--does the job."
Pros: "Nothing at all flights not on time crew very un helpful and not nice"
Cons: "I'm a normal sized man and the seats were terribly cramped. I likely won't fly United again as long as I have a choice."
Pros: "Changed my seat to a better one"
Cons: "Plane an hour late taking off"
Pros: "Great flight with very nice amenities"
Cons: "Seat did not recline so made the flight a very sore lower back experience."
Cons: "One of the crew members was late to arrive, so boarding was delayed. However, The gate crew was amazing, very communicative and apologetic. During the flight the attendants seemed very agitated, I think a smile would go along way to improve the attitude of everyone. I also work with the public, I get that it is challenging, but I do believe that the simple gesture of a smile sets the tone."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Delayed because of no crew members"
Cons: "The leg room was abysmal."
Cons: "My fiancé and I packed a suitcase together and it was 3lbs over the 50lb limit. They refused to let it slide and when we asked how much it would be if we left it they said it would cost us $100 for an oversized bag. We already paid the $25 so it makes no sense for it to cost $100 more. They were completely unreasonable and not helpful. Not to mention the flight was an hour late. Our flight on the way out was completely cancelled all together and no one bothered to tell either of us. Then they rerouted us on completely different flights! We had to basically throw a fit to get on the same flight, which ended up being 8 hours AFTER our original flight was supposed to leave. The entire experience was a disaster and I will never fly united again."
Pros: "The flight attendants were nice. Other than that, nothing."
Cons: "Maybe it's because I haven't flown in a few years but it seems that the airlines are packing in as many seats as they can, without regard to the passengers who are shoved into tiny seats for 5+ hours without even being able to stretch their legs. We were in the last row where you can't even lean your seat back but the guy in front of me was just about in my lap the whole flight. Charging for in flight entertainment and meals also seems like the airlines care less for customer satisfaction than the money they can get from passangers. While boarding, we were stopped in first class because the flight attendant was in the aisle getting drinks for first class...Before all the passengers boarded. Also, why is every flight told they get one carry on plus a personal item when that isn't really the case? If the flight is full, apparently there is not enough room for each passanger to have a carry on so people who have delicate items packed in their carry ons have to surrender them and pray their precious vacation purchases aren't smashed when they get their luggage back. Quantity over quality."
Pros: "Boeing planes are very comfortable. No pressure Really nice experience"
Pros: "I enjoyed the way the staff was kind and helpful. The planes were full and the staff was doing their best to meet the need of everyone aboard."
Cons: "Flight delayed, missed my connection. Messed up my surprise visit to a friend. No apologies, no upgrade or vouchers offered."
Pros: "Very nice and flexible people and boarding was easy. Smooth flight."
Cons: "Very cramped tight seating and the stewardesses were a little lax. Also, the overhead speaker was not loud enough to hear if you're sitting by the window as I was. They have no control over turning it up and if there was something to do with safety I would be in trouble."
Pros: "The crew was nice. That's about the only nice thing I can say."
Cons: "First of the seats are awful. Paying for the upgrade is hardly worth it. I'm sure first class is nice but the standard and business are not. Secondly the entertainment is a joke. You have to pay for everything. Only one flight had the TV sets on the back of the seats. The rest were paying for wifi and using your device. I bought the wifi and then it wouldn't work. It was a big waste of $10.00. Thirdly while I know the airline can't do anything about the weather, but they should schedule their flights with more of a layover. I was stuck in the air due to a storm for an hour and my layover was only for an hour. Luckily I was able to make the flight as they were closing the door. All in all just a bad experience."
Pros: "The temperature inside the plane was nice. The stewardists did well."
Cons: "Why are planes loaded so erratically it should go first class then back of the plane to front of the plane. I had to check my bag cause everyone is put on the plane randomly the over head compartment filled up and I had to check my bag. I specifically packed to only have a carry on not a check bag. Carley"
Pros: "Fast clean boarding and unboarding."
Cons: "Missed the fact that I selected a red eye flight with a three an a half layover"
Pros: "The flight made it there."
Cons: "the bike fee was deliberately miss leading and was $150!!! Then the desk crew degraded and generally treated everyone terribly, the in flight crew steamed ever worked and exhausted. Worst flight I've ever been on."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "My flight was cancelled they never told me , and after I explained to them I bought this ticket two hours ago because my grandmother and uncle were dying and I needed to get there, they lied to me told me I would be on a different flight and still get there at the same time. Well my flight was not the same time it was three hours different and if I made it there like they promised the first time I would have been able to kiss my grandma one last time. She died a hour before I got there. And now I'm fighting with them for a refund."
Pros: "Friendly flight crew"
Cons: "We left late, so I had to rush to catch my connection... Which luckily was also late. Too bad people now have to pay for food & entertainment. Maybe one movie could be free?"
Pros: "The flight was cheapest one available"
Cons: "Flight arrived to destination 25 minutes late, which caused 30% of flight to miss their United connecting flight. United books too short of layover times (30-40 minutes) and is notoriously late on their flights."
Cons: "Late flights, unhelpful service, poor selection of entertainment"
Cons: "Nothing that was supposed to be free was free. Internet said it was free but it was $1.55/ hr. And direct tv was dumb."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "No alternative options given. Slow response. No retrieval of email confirmation after purchase of trip. Flight was delayed and no notice was given. Rental car had to ordered last minute and was left without room and board for the night. Had to call again for actual co formation of second flight because no notice was given,"
Pros: "Literally the only saving grace was an employee named David R at the Chicago desk on the morning of July 22. He helped my friend and I, calmed us down, and dos his job quickly and competently. He made me feel like a human instead of an insignificant part of the herd of cattle. Thank God for that man."
Cons: "I do not have time to fill out this box. I could write about everything shitty that happened, but then I would die typing on my phone instead of doing something amazing like bungee jumping or outrunning a grizzly bear."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for 3 hour leaving Seattle."
Pros: "Can't sleep sitting up. Pretty funny watching everyone try..."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "The delays were horrendous"
Pros: "I'm jewish, I was given PORK after asking twice to make sure it wasn't. Not happy at all"
Cons: "I was served pork. This was a horrible experience for me. It is against my religion to eat this, I asked twice to make sure. .... very dissatisfied"
Cons: "They lost my piece of luggage."
Pros: "The women who worked for united who helped reroute passengers worked hard to get us on other flights with other airlines during the multiple delays."
Cons: "Delayed thirty minutes then again and again for up to 8 hours until they finally cancelled it. Would have been helpful to be more transparent so passengers could have rerouted earlier to avoid missing connections in Chicago."
Cons: "the 2 hour delay really caused me to miss important meetings the next day."
Pros: "The staff did their job fine"
Cons: "Frontier is the Electronic Arts of the Airlines Industries, serving micro transactions for every piece of your experience, leaves a very sour taste. Would recommend any other airline"
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Frontier has to get better about being on time. We were 90 minutes behind schedule. The plane gets there and took 45 minutes to do the turn around. Then get to Denver and there is a plane in our gate even through we were 30 minutes behind schedule. another 30 minutes to get to the gate"
Cons: "The boarding process was fine but in this case the boarding was delayed but no communication was provided as to how significantly that would impact our arrival time, so it was just hard to prepare my arrival pickup."
Pros: "hmm"
Cons: "layover nothing was in order staff sucked yall kept moving gate yall could at lest give us a soda for the long rides"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Nothing included in this flight, rude customer services, required to pay on my one and only carry on small backpack"
Pros: "Good connection, timely departure, pleasant crew"
Cons: "Budget airline ended up being much more expensive than my usual airlines. $40 per bag per leg of the trip, including carry-on?! My wife and I each had one carry on bag (normally free). Since we had a connection each direction that's $40 x 2 (people) x 4 flights = $320. That's ridiculous. Furthermore, these were the worst seating conditions on any airline I've ever seen (and I fly plenty). There is no headrest - the seats barely make it to my shoulders. And the seats themselves have no cushion whatsoever. The tray tables are laughably miniscule - much smaller than my laptop. There is no free snack/beverage or in-flight entertainment. There is no wifi. I will stick to United or Delta in the future."
Cons: "My seat was not worth an extra $50. Sat next to a lady with a stinky dog in her lap that was probably a little too big for lap."
Cons: "It's horrible I miss my flight and no body told me I have to there 2hrs ahead but when I get to the airport I couldn't find anybody any one from frontier agents , I end up asking people what happened they don't even know and I told they are done and left that's horrible no body there to help to book for the n cut flight . Their customer service phone number is a scam there no body to help you . Even I get a big discount with I will never ever fly with them ."
Pros: "This was not a deal at all! I should have just flown straight into Grand Junction on Alaska. You can't drop off bags until 2 hrs before flight which is no good @ a busier airport like SEA. There were no USB outlets or wifi available. The seats were uncomfortable & the extra space they charged for was bolony. Plus I had to pay $40 to bring a bag or if you needed to store a carry on in the over head you paid. Not one type of drink or snack was offered. Then I also rented a car where I got the insurance & then to find out that it's a third party insurance & doesn't count. Plus I am fighting Hertz on extra time charged even through I told the woman who checked me on that I wouldn't be back until 4. If I knew I had to be back earlier I would have been. The flight & rental car experience was terrible. I don't think your intentions are at all to help save people money."
Cons: "Seeing my family."
Cons: "The airline charges extra for things that most airlines provide as part of the ticket price. The ticket was not cheaper than other airlines to compensate for the additional charges: carry-on fees, choosing a seat, snacks and beverages, etc. We were delayed with no explanation; it's nice to be kept informed when that happens. Crew was fine but I won't choose Frontier again because of the additional charges for things that should be included in a competitive ticket price."
Pros: "The crew was great. The pilot lightened the mood with humor and the announcements were useful ( weather, time zone changes, ETA etc... ). The plane was clean and the price was low."
Cons: "You have to pay forty dollars for a carry on and for any beverage or snack on the flight. There was confusion about the seats as we boarded, which we did by zones, but still had aisle traffic which defeated the purpose. My connection was moved to another gate and they failed to announce it ( yes it was on the screen, but I don't travel that often and was lucky to notice it just as we were boarding... luckily just a few minutes walk away ). The plane offers no entertainment at all ( which is fine for me, but worth knowing... bring a dvd player or something for long trips )."
Pros: "Prive"
Cons: "Seats were very uncomfortable. My knees hurt from position."
Pros: "The crew was amicable and we did not crash"
Cons: "I dislike being nickle and dimed to death. Pay for the fuel and other overhead, then pay for the seat, then pay for carry on and checked baggage, ten for anything other than water. I understand that weight costs money. Why don't you charge people per pound? That would probably be unpopular with a lot of Americans so charge $x per pound for anything over "average". You are doing about the same with luggage. It feels like you are running a bait and switch operation."
Pros: "They're awful and we're different from what I actually looked up"
Cons: "They say low fares done right but my "cheap" flight turned out to cost me over double what it should have with their extra cost for everything! And I mean for EVERYTHING. Will never fly frontier again!"
Cons: "Will not use frontier again, I had no idea they didn't cover even a carry on. Also, couldn't lay my head down on the tray in front of me on the plane, it was way too short and way too low."
Pros: "Was booked for the wrong date, and when arrived even though there was a flight at that time, there was no agents and the self check in kiosks were off, no one to answer questions."
Cons: "Wasn't able to find out."
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "No snacks, no coffee, no soda."
Pros: "Delays happen. However, to be stuck at the ticket counter and not to get past that to the comfort of a lounge or restaurant is something else. So not only was there a delay, but those of us who got there early could do nothing but wait-- with NO ONE at the ticket counter for the first 40 minutes."
Cons: "We landed early and then had to sit on the tarmac for 45 minutes for a gate. And then the jetway didn't work. So instead of getting home early for a change, I wasn't home until very late."
Cons: "Tried to cancel this flight using the flight insurance I was up sold during checkout. Turns out that the flight insurance was only available for international flights? When I ask the agent why it was the recommended during purchase, she said I should have read the full terms and conditions during checkout. To me, this was a true scam. She told me that I could appeal the conditions of the travel insurance, but I would have to present a death certificate of the friend's baby that had just passed - the reason the baby shower was cancelled, and the reason this trip was cancelled. It was appalling. I tried calling Frontier directly, but their reservation desk was closed due to their system being down. HOURS I tried to call, and could not get a rep. I ended up not able to cancel the flight or even speak w a Frontier rep before my flight departed. In all, I was given 6 different numbers or lines to call to sort through this situation. All I did was waste hours of my time. This was a terrible situation where I feel like I was the victim of a scam."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled and not reimbursed, there were no agents at the gate and it took over 6 hours to address rebooking. The reimbursement of rebooking cost me over 300 dollars. I will never travel on Frontier airlines again."
Pros: "2 hour delay why bother"
Cons: "Delay"
Pros: "At least this flight was only 15 min late!!"
Cons: "Told to arrive early only to show up and realize he bag check counter is unattended. A sign states it will open 2 hours prior to boarding. Staff shows up late then has to log on to computers and get ready. Once we check bags, lines are so long at security we are diverted to different gates. Worst airline I have ever used."
Pros: "It's Frontier, the low-cost, no-frills option. You pay for everything extra, including a carry-on and in-flight beverages, the seats are "pre-reclined for your comfort", and the plane was 30 min late. But the flight was dirt cheap, so if none of that bothers you..."
Pros: "Nothing in particular stood out"
Cons: "Cost of ~49 $ extra for a carry on. This adds 90$ to trip. I would have choose another airline if I had known this was the ask."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "First leg of our trip was delayed so we could not make our connection. We were told they could fly us to Denver and catch other flight home 3 days later or completely rebook to the next closest city. (They do not partner with anyone so you are stuck with their flights) Which we then needed to book a hotel, cab fares to the megabus station, then cab fares back to our original destination. Once arriving, and even though we checked in hours before our flight, our baggage was missing along with about 10 other passengers. Frontier had no one at their baggage service when we arrived. So I had the drive 2 hours back the next day. Called the help line. The person was rude and began getting loud with me, even though they are the ones that lost our bags. 90% of all the customer service people we encountered were extremely rude and would not help. Nor were they very accommodating for all their mess ups. For all our troubles, the rude "customer service" people, and out additional hundreds of dollars; Frontier sent us a coupon for a whooping $50 to use on their airline. No thanks, will never fly this airline again."
Pros: "Even though our flight left late we still made our connection."
Cons: "The seats were so close in front of us, the lap trays were tiny, and the window seat didn't have enough leg room."
Cons: "When I got to the gate, I was told that I had to pay $45 for my carry on luggage, which I found it to be somewhat insulting (if I had agreed to check-in the luggage it would have been 'cheaper' only $40). This was the first time I had ever been asked to pay for my carry-on luggage, and the basis for me to never fly Frontier ever again. They claim that it was because of the ticket I purchased through a third party, and I told them that they should not advertise any tickets where you intend to charge people for their carry-on luggage. To make things worse, it appears that Frontier does not participate with the TSA pre-check program, and even though I had my global entry card with me, the officer at TSA pre-check would not allow me through this line because of the airline I was flying with - Never again!!! I suspect that on my way back I'll be forced to pay another $45 for my carry-on luggage, which I despise."
Cons: "The seats don't recline, the plane was freezing, and I didn't know there would be a $45 carry on luggage fee when I bought my ticket"
Pros: "Nice seats. The lady next to me."
Cons: "Where are the free peanuts?!"
Pros: "The only redeeming thing about my flight was the pilot's skill at avoiding bad weather. he was great at limiting turbulence."
Cons: "Kayak does not explain them any fees that frontier will later charge you during check-in and during your flight. Budget another $150 round-trip for check in, any baggage and buying a soda on the airplane. I also waited in line for 40 minutes to check in at massively understaffed Frontier counter in Seattle."
Cons: "Long Delay unloading passengers, but not the fault of Frontier. The flight steward had a wonderful, warm sense of humor. (Lively African-American man) even sang a little jingle while we waited."
Pros: "Pilots"
Cons: "Service"
Pros: "No delays and excellent crew"
Cons: "No internet"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats, they did not recline. Crew kept talking loudly at the back and it was hard to sleep ."
Pros: "I arrived to my destination."
Cons: "$30 to check a carry on bag, $40 if I wanted to carry it on. It felt like I was on a flying Trailways bus. In the end it was my bad, because you get what you pay for. Beware of low cost airlines with hidden fees!"
Pros: "kind staff."
Cons: "the seats were absolutely awful."
Pros: "Cheap tickets"
Cons: "Extra charges every step of the way, seats were too cramped to sleep on the red eye flight."
Cons: "the flight was delayed and then cancelled for equipment. no one from frontier addressed any passengers at the gate until after the flight crew had mentioned the cracked windshield and "what the hell are we going to do for 24 hours." eventually, after an hour and a half, the unhelpful staff gave out pre-printed snips of paper with outdated instructions on who to call and how to rebook or ask for a refund. after a fifteen minute phone call they said they'd cancel payment and that it would take 5-7 days, so I had to cancel my trip."
Pros: "everything was great"
Cons: "nothing"
Cons: "There was very little cushioning on the seats and they did not recline at all. They don't tell you during booking or at check in about the added fee for carry on luggage. Luckily I had none but about 15 people had to pay at the gate. The cost for your carry on and checked bag fee, you could of afforded a nicer airline that doesn't charge for that."
Pros: "Easy on and off. Storage space available."
Cons: "The seats uncomfortable couldn't sleep. Over priced snacks and beverages."
Cons: "It's really hard to feel good and positive about a flight, when you get nickeled and dimed prior to the flight. No matter how good the service is, I feel slighted. I'll avoid Frontier as much as possible in the future."
Pros: "Literally nothing. There was nothing about it that I liked. There were things that I didn't really mind, like the uncomfortable seats and no food or drink service in flight. I mean, that's not something I liked, but that's not how I choose what airline to fly with."
Cons: "I had a flight from Seattle to Miami with a layover in Denver. There was a staffing issue which caused the flight to be delayed 2 hours, causing me to miss my connection. Crystal, the customer service manager, explained that the customer service agent in Seattle was instructed to put most of us on different flights so we could get to our destination faster and she’s not sure why that didn’t happen, she then explained that I had two options: 1. Get on the next flight to Miami, departing the following night at 11:55pm, or 2. they refund the cost of my ticket ($234). That doesn’t sound too bad! I pulled out my laptop, found a flight for $219 with United that departed the next morning, showed Crystal, and said I’d just take the refund. Crystal then informed me that they can’t issue refunds at the airport and that I had to call some number to get my refund… during regular business hours. The following morning I called the number and spoke with a supervisor named Arnie. Arnie explained that she can only process refunds that are submitted by a customer service agent at the airport and wasn’t able/willing to help me. So I go back to the airport and talk to Scott, the manager at the ticket counter. Scott explained that Frontier messed something up with the staffing which caused the delay, Scott actually said the words “the delay was totally preventable.” He then explained that he did have the ability to give me a full refund, but that he wasn’t going to because while I paid for service from Seattle to Miami, and Frontier only provided service from Seattle to Denver, that because some service was provided, even though it wasn’t what I paid for or what I wanted, that the transaction was perfectly fair. I had to burn another vacation day for work, sit in the Denver airport for 24 more hours, and according to Scott, Frontier should have prevented this, and still, Scott assured me that this was perfectly fair. I then spoke with Martin, a condescending manager at the customer service center, who eventually told me that he authorized the full refund! However, he refused to put it in writing “company policy to never put anything in writing”, but said I could call the refunds dept to verify. So I did. I talked with Jen, a supervisor in Frontier’s refund dept who informed me that Martin does not have the authority to give me a full refund and it’s not in the system. Jen asked me to hand my phone to Martin to talk to him, but Martin refused to talk to her and eventually told me that Jen was right and the best they could do was request a refund and I’d be notified in 10 business days as to how much they decided was fair, Jen estimated that would be $35 - $80 of the $234 ticket… so I guess Martin was just lying to me to not have to deal with me. At the end of the day, if there is anything I am sure of, it’s that if something does go wrong, you can be absolutely sure Frontier will do absolutely nothing to try to help you- even if it was 100% their fault."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Didn't like being misled on price. Charges for "a bag" and "a seat" were not made known until AFTER the reservation was made. Refer to the original business/pricing model. 1. Everyone has some baggage. Deal with it. Enforce carry on limits 100% and openly offer check bag at a reasonable price. 2. Seats are NOT a profit option. Seats are increasingly uncomfortable, cramped and added with premium charges. Finally, the travel experience should be a pleasant and memorable one, considering the time strapped in a seat. Its OK to have Coach & Premium seating, but stop adding "option pricing" for an increasingly poor experience. I will not fly Frontier again."
Pros: "Both flights boarded quickly, left on time, and both flights arrived several minutes early. Good winds or whatever really helped with my first impression of your airline. Clean plane, courteous staff."
Cons: "While I know it's not included in your fares, I really am used to a cup of coffee or a coke when I fly."
Cons: "Arrived late. Baggage was overcharged. They charged me for carry on bag besides baggage claimed. Upon late arrival waited an hour till I got my baggage Arrived late. Baggage was overcharged. They charged me for carry on bag besides baggage claimed. Upon late arrival waited an hour till I got my baggage Arrived late. Baggage was overcharged.

Pros: "Getting off the plane."
Cons: "Everything else."
Cons: "Bad service, expensive everything"
