Pros: "right on time; cheerful kind crew! pilot kept us updated but wasnt irritating"
Cons: "food was a bit of a strange mix...some parts delucious; the rest just weird... also with CV-19 at large would have loved to see the crew wipe down lav/doir handles once or twice!"
Cons: "Seat cushions feel a little flat."
Pros: "Boarding was quick. Crew was friendly and professional."
Cons: "No faults. Perfect flight."
Pros: "Great snack offerings, friendly holiday crew"
Cons: "Felt very good"
Cons: "It was poor flight took off late and it arrived in Las Vegas late I miss my connection connecting flight the put on a different airlines got in late miss my ride and now I'm stranded at the airport"
Pros: "Good selection of movies streamed to phone"
Pros: "I have never been so comfortable"
Pros: "On time & food is reasonably priced."
Cons: "More choices of food for 3.5+ hours flight."
Pros: "Friendly crew. Great movie selection through gogo inflight entertainment!"
Cons: "Everything was great, beverage service could have been more timely but everything was good"
Cons: "There was a lavatory directly across the aisle from me"
Pros: "The crew! And free WiFi!"
Cons: "Nothing! Was amazing"
Pros: "That there was still a little bit a Virgin America still present! Love entertainment is available an absolute bonus that I wish traditional Alaska planes started installing!!"
Cons: "The entertainment of no headphones available and most headphones are now Bluetooth presents a problem. No snacks offered!!"
Cons: "Long flight delay with very little information given as to why. The pilot only sporadically gave information about the delay and was not specific about the cause or how long the delay would be."
Cons: "Two rows up from us, I kid threw up all over the center aisle as we were pulling away from the gate. We returned to the gate to allow a cleaning crew to board and clean. However, the cleaning job was rushed and left remnants of the throw up behind which smelled the whole 2.5 hour flight. It really felt unsanitary and unsafe being that it’s unknown what caused the child to get sick. It very well could have been a stomach virus and could have infected the people in rows around the incident due to the mediocre cleaning job. I understand that it’s important to keep flights on-time, especially for connecting flights, but the safety of the passengers and their health should ALWAYS be the #1 priority."
Pros: "I was unable to catch my flight and I called and the lady kn the phone was not helpful and rather rude. Was unwilling to help me figure out a solution to changing my flight plans"
Cons: "was unable to catch my flight and I called and the lady on the phone was not helpful and rather rude. Was unwilling to help me figure out a solution to changing my flight plans"
Pros: "Everything was great! This was my first time flying Alaska Air and I could not have had a better trip! Everything ran according to schedule, I was comfortable during the flight, slept the entire time, staff was great!"
Cons: "The woman making announcements did not specifically announce the duration of the flight as we were departing. I was able to figure it out on the map option on the screen, but I would've liked to hear it verbally. Only suggestion I would have is an announcement on the plane for which baggage claim belt our luggage would come out of. I may not have heard it though, if there was an announcement. It was not difficult at all to figure out once I was in the baggage claim area, however if this was known while we were still on the flight, I prefer to know this info!"
Pros: "Once we got going, the Capt and crew did make up for lost time& that was greatly appreciated!"
Cons: "We waited and waited in the airport before boarding......having no idea what the hold-up was."
Pros: "Arrived 5 min early and bags at bag claim in less than 20 min"
Pros: "Great service for an affordable price!"
Pros: "Nice and easy"
Cons: "I felt like cattle flying on flight 308 sea-sf. Obese intoxicated guy taking up 1/2 my middle seat that I paid $200 for. Pilot said we were 16 on take off line. I think he is being sarcastic - I hope he is. Not a pleasant experience at all. 34 min late & no wifi. 30 min to get to gate. BS"
Pros: "Outlets in the planes!!!"
Cons: "Delay on one flight"
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: "TWO beverage trips -- how could I not be happy?"
Pros: "Arriving in Seattle my bag was waiting for me at the claim area. After 45+ years of flying around the world that was a first. But something happened before we took off. The gentleman in the seat in front of me had packed some oxygen bottles in his bags and a handler came onboard to address this. He was polite and very understanding that the man was meeting a cruise ship in Seattle and needed them as life support. The handler took an address from him and said he would take the bottles to Fedex near the airport and sent them to him. And the passenger could send him the money later! I thin k the handler's name was Bob. He needs a commendation foe going the extra mile for a passenger! Find him and buy him dinner."
Cons: "Having to get my seat assignment at the gate just increases my anxiety with the entire flying experience. Stop it. I get there 1.5 hours early to wait at the gate uncertain of weather I will be flying that day. As usual with all airlines seat comfort was non existent."
Pros: "Nice flight and crew."
Cons: "I got spoiled by the first flight with new plane and great crew, but no complaints really."
Cons: "Check in staff at Assistance counters either had problems with their computers or couldn't understand reservations. We had a pet for which we had paid for round trip reservation months ago, yet agent took quite awhile to reconcile our reservations. We stood in line for nearly a half hour during which their were very long lines at each check in point and at least one or two agents left on breaks while the lines were still very long. At Burbank the agents were fast, accurate and there were almost no waiting. The flight itself was great and the flight attendants were excellent; but not impressed at all with check in at Seattle."
Pros: "The crew was great. They were pleasant and helpful."
Cons: "We were on row 33 d,e, & f. Seats d & e would not recline. The button on seat d was broken. As annoying as that was, there were 3 unaccompanied minors sitting in front of us. Two of them were fine. The third one on the isle seat was up and down, in and out of his seat the majority of the flight. I couldn't sleep. This was my second flight of the day after staying in Seattle for 7 hours waiting between my flights. The kid was loud and it seemed like the crew couldn't correct him. He just did as he pleased. I wasn't the only passenger who had a problem with him. And apparently the crew did as well. I paid a lot of money for that flight and he ruined it for me. If they are going to fly children like that, the crew should be able to correct them so the other passengers can have a pleasant flight."
Cons: "There's no meal included on a 5hr flight. I was seated in a middle seat between two 300lb people encroaching on the space I paid a lot of money for. Completely unacceptable."
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: "Seats were comfortable but they need to recline or have foot rest. When I missed the flight your CS was excellent her name was Whitney and she was in Seattle.."
Cons: "Should not charge for WIFI service in the air"
Pros: "Alaska Airline personal are professional and helpful."
Cons: "TSA is a disgusting experience, though I understand it's importance in this unsafe time in history. But, the TSA personell often seem to be bickering among themselves while they are suppose to be working."
Pros: "The customer service got us on the next available flight. Didn't charge us for our baggage (which they could have). Staff were helpful and realized that we were bone tired (after being awake for over 30 hours). Flight was easy. Crew was nice. Easy access to baggage when we got to PDX. I love Alaska Airlines!"
Cons: "Nothing. They got it all right."
Cons: "All alaskan airline flights were delayed which in time created a last minute gate change for me. Because of the gate change, I was forced to take an underground train to make in in time while switching gates. Overall just should have been more efficient in every manner."
Pros: "Flight was ok. But the important thing is that Alaska was really accommodating in putting me on standby when I arrived at airport early and the standby process was very smooth and efficient."
Pros: "After custom, I put my check-in luggages to connecting flight conveyer, I was told to go to gate without boarding pass. I was concerned about availability of seat. I was waiting more than 1 hour at gate but no crew showed up. It was about 1 hour before scheduled flight to Sacramento. So I asked nearby crew again, I was told then to go to Alaska Airline customer service. The crew was very helpful to give me a boarding pass there."
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: "Alaskas great cheese plate"
Cons: "The heat was high, we asked the male steward many times to request the heat turned down, people were removing as much clothing as possible. It was very hot and sticky and smelly. The descent to landing was to fast when near the runway, and we crashed hard like a carrier landing. I would inspect the gear and wing spats for cracks. The fuselage bowed like a banana, it was evident looking down the tube sitting the back. How about a breathalyzer or something, everybody knows the drunken pilots, the can't be fired and they know it, so it takes years to sober them up at our expense. The pilots who've been caught drinking are not trying to get better, they just whine that the others who haven't been caught yet are even worse drunks. Everybody who flys on Alaska has heard it from the same old Alaska born drunken pilots. How about less drunken bush piloting and get your drunken pilots who've been busted in the last few years to shut up and stop telling everyone that all Alaska pilots are drunks as defense of there drunkeness."
Cons: "The plane had to turn around halfway from Seattle to Vancouver due to a mechanical problem. We all later got an email saying we'd receive a discount on future travel because the airline deemed the delay "preventable." We got a second plane quickly, on the second boarding process the gate agent failed to do preboarding. I'm on crutches at the moment, so this meant more time on my feet manoeuvring around "elite status members" than I would have liked."
Cons: "I carry photo equipment in a carry on bag because of expense, damage control and temperature control. Unfortunately I can not leave it for baggage people to handle (although I would love to.) When I got my carry on to the greeting flight attendant I explained I had just finished a shoot and I was sorry that I needed to keep the bag as carry on. Flight Attendant: there was nothing she could do and I needed to go back down the stairs, even though people were still boarding and leave it with the baggage people. Me: "In the past the flight attendant put the bag in that closet." (I pointed to the locked closet where they keep their bags.) Flight Attendant: I cant open it because it's locked. Me: "The key is kept there." (I pointed to where the key is kept. I know because I've done this trip so many times before.) Flight Attendant: "See if it will fit under your seat." It did... but I had my knees in my chin for the entire flight. Thanks, Ann"
Pros: "It was a great flight. The attendants were great. The captive was informative."
Cons: "They needed a little more space in the seats and the Isle could be a bit wider also. When the carts were going threw it did limit the restrooms. But overall it was a great experience."
Pros: "The flight took off on time and got to the destination on time. It is a great experience. The flight attendants are nice and friendly as well."
Pros: "It was fast and friendly. They took a lot of guesswork out and made us feel safe."
Cons: "The planes were a bit small for flying 6+ hours. I started getting restless at having to sit in the same position for that long."
Pros: "On the ground ..TSA said I needed a new boarding pass..3 kiosck wouldn't. Work. Friendly re sent me to Alaska desk where they printed me a new boarding pass but when I went to TSA. I had no passport. Sooooo..back to t he Alaska desk and a wonderful rep named Diane helped me hunt through all my "stuff"...then began talking to all reps helping process passengers. She never gave up. And found my passport at the desk that had made me a new boarding pass. I was so upset I couldn't think straight but she did!, many thanks to this kind lady."
Pros: "the seat confusion was a hassle but the crew was nice about it."
Cons: "the flight was oversold and i didn't get a seat assignment until the last minute. Then the seat they gave me was already booked to someone else, so i had to wait again on the plane to get a seat. on my outgoing flight to seattle a few days prior, i intentionally didn't check a bag because i had a late arrival and early work the next day, was forced to check it on the plane and then they lost it for an hour after i landed so i didn't get home until 2am. frustrating, but again the crew was nice about the mistakes."
Pros: "So many options for entertainment"
Cons: "They loaded an empty food cart onto the plane and we waited for a new one, then they decided that we would just fly without any."
Pros: "Accommodating a lot more than American Airlines."
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: "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: "I was upgraded to Comfort+ and the seat next to me was left vacant. That was a great flight!"
Pros: "Seat was decent and only a $10 upgrade. Worth it!"
Cons: "Wasn’t clear what boarding group was up. I don’t usually fly delta so maybe I’m just not used to the system but something on the video screen at the gate saying where they were in boarding would have helped. I wasn’t the only one that seemed lost."
Pros: "The food was improved and the seat was comfortable."
Pros: "Early departure"
Cons: "Absolutely nothing"
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: "Kayak a howed my gate as something that didn’t exist at the terminal. I went to a kayak help desk to have a ticket printed that showed my TSA precheck because it wasn’t showing on my mobile ticket, and no one was there to help. I waisted for 10 mins. It then took me nearly 2 hours to get through security. I asked if I could get through quicker and was told I could not, despite it being passed my boarding time. I then ran to my gate where I waited for another 10 mins (no one was there, again) and then an employee came out and said they couldn’t let anyone board once the door was shut. He then directed me to the delta help desk (there was at least 20 people behind me who missed their flight). I then had to pay an additional $75 to get a later flight. The whole experience was awful and I’m disappointed with Kayak and the gate confusion, but mostly Delta and the lack of customer service."
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.)"
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: "Coldest flight I’ve ever taken. Not sure why I paid $60 to fly in comfort when I had to endure the arctic temperatures. Free WiFi never worked once either."
Cons: "That I was going to be charged $125 for oversized luggage unti"
Pros: "Nothing really"
Cons: "Flight delay further to the 30 minutes additional 20 min due to crew being not there"
Pros: "Entertainment was good."
Cons: "The crew was very rude."
Cons: "rescheduling Putting my wife on a different flight seating us in middle seats"
Cons: "Seat, did not get upgraded"
Pros: "Friendly staff staff, smooth boarding experience, DC+ positive experience"
Cons: "757-200 outdated for having spent 10 hours on that same plane (stop but no plane change) having flown shorter haul flights on many updated 757 was disappointing."
Pros: "The food was fine and it was on time"
Cons: "The airplane back by the bathrooms were littered all over the floor. Needed to be cleaned. Their were no seat covers in toilette and it was only 2 hrs into the flight."
Cons: "No drink or snack service. No trash pick up. No option to purchase or rent headphones"
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: "Nice plane, smooth flight, flight was on time in spite of the disaster in Houston."
Cons: "Well, even United brings a tray of waters on the short flight from Portland to Redmond. Hard to believe it was impossible to serve some drinks on this 1 hour fairly empty flight from Seattle. Also, when taking off the plane surged and slowed several times. I had to wonder if the pilot was in training?"
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"
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!"
Cons: "Late and missed my international connection"
Pros: "Free entertainment and free food was unexpected and very welcomed, especially given the trend of charging for more and more features."
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: "Fast boarding, everyone nice."
Cons: "Wifi was yo and down the whole flight, about 20 times, so kids were not entertained."
Pros: "EZ play newer plane nice staff"
Cons: "Power plugs did not work in seating row and air vents did not work"
Pros: "The entertainment was great!"
Cons: "I was so uncomfortable in my seat."
Seat power didn’t work and Wi-Fi was glitchy for the first 30-45 min.
The plane is old and really small. Crew was great
Pros: "The food and the crew totally good"
Cons: "Maybe the toilets, need to be clean at least once in a flight"
Cons: "A little discouraged that AA doesn’t offer a TV in the headrest for 1st class customers"
Pros: "Crew was super nice"
Cons: "Airline to be more user friendly with connecting to free entertainment"
Pros: "Crews are fantastic. Just only assigning seat u need to buy so that you seat besides of your companion."
Cons: "If the travelers has 2 to 3 more companion let them seat together."
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: "Original flight came in 1.5 hrs late. Missed connection, then sat on the tarmac for 2 hrs before taking off because the pilot was late."
Pros: "Nothing. I missed a family members funeral and no one at the airline cares. I ended up staying home because the flight was delayed 8 hours."
Cons: "Customer service didn't even try to find connecting flights and informed us that there were no other flights going to Phoenix. Which was a lie. I will never book with American again."
Cons: "Other than at meals, No crew around to distribute water on a 9-10 hour flight. Crew not very nice when we were asking for water. Completely dehydrated on arrival. Ground crew very charming."
Pros: "Flight attendants were two hours late"
Pros: "Attentive crew. Traveling with 2 seniors in their 80’s. Thank you."
Cons: "Nothing. Perfect."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly"
Cons: "Seats were extremely uncomfortable, and hurt my back very much."
Pros: "The flight got me there"
Cons: "WiFi was too slow to be able to watch anything. Seat small and uncomfortable. Flight attendants not friendly."
Pros: "Even though looked like I had selected a seat assignment they were not booked. On first leg of trip had to wait until a couple agreed to be bought off their seats before we could be boarded. Very misleading."
Cons: "Boarding could be improved if they would start boarding from the back of the plane to the front after boarding 1st class and Priority this way people would not block the passage when putting their luggage in the top compartments. The crew was not very helpful because I almost went into a hypothermia condition because the air in the cabin was extremely cold. When I ask for a blanket one of the stewardesses said that AA would no longer have blankets in flight which I prove it wrong when I saw in the flight Mai-SDQ blanquets all over the cabin. The soliton they gave me was that they would ask the crew to raise the temp in the cabin, I had to make the request three times and I had to tell the stewardess that if not raising the temperature in the cabin I could have gone into an emergency hypothermia crisis. I had to take another shirt from my carry-on to put it over my shirt to warm me up."
Pros: "On time and the staff was great"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for whatever reason. Did not give us a reason why. Also boarding was very haphazard. They just boarded all groups at once to try to make up some time. Almost did not make it to our connecting flight in time"
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: "For this flight I was seated in first class (I scheduled it this way; it wasn't due to a last minute upgrade) and the flight attendant was very personable and attentive :-) Service was wonderful and the meal was great! Of course, the flight attendant made sure to keep our beverages topped off as needed. It was a wonderful experience"
Cons: "The boarding process for just about any airline is nearly identical. It always seems like it takes longer to board than expected even if, in reality, it's not an unreasonable amount of time. The only think I didn't care for was that overhead storage in the area I was sitting was just about full by the time I was seated which meant that I had to store my carry on a few rows behind where I sat. This meant that during off-boarding I needed to go against the flow of people to get back to my carry on. All in all, it was a minor inconvenience."
Pros: "Our pilot was great. Kept us informed, was pleasant and got us in early. I appreciated the extra information he provided regarding expected turbulance and arrival updates."
Cons: "There wasn't individual entertainment unless i used my own device."
Cons: "We are letting too many people with the flu, travel. This in turn is spreading it to other places and getting too many people sick. We need to control this more. I don’t have an option after spending all this money on if I can stay healthy or not, and that is not ok."
Pros: "It was on time. Flight crew did a very good job and were very nice. The Meal was excellent as was the coffee. Overall, service was excellent."
Cons: "First Class needs a total redo as the seats were not as nice as on newer planes. Rest room in First Class is way too small and cramped. WiFi did not work well, and there were no individual screens on the backs of the seats. The First Class on this plane was really bad and needs some rethinking by American."
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."
Cons: "No food or entertainment offered at all - for a 5-1/2 hour flight. Seats uncomfortable. I don't like how it feels like you're nickle and diming us - charging for every little thing, including what seat you sit in."
Pros: "Crew was great, boarding went well, smooth flight."
Cons: "On a 5+ hour flight, they only served soft drinks and a small biscotti. What happened to an actual meal??"
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: "Unable to sleep on the redeye from Seattle to Philly owing to a loud, constant alarm for the entire flight."
Cons: "My screen didn't work and the flashing ads gave me a headache"
Pros: "All the staff were super friendly and warm. The customer service was top notch - beyond beyond amazing. The seats were comfortable. And the cups for our complimentary beverage weren't kids sized! I received a normal cup! The whole experience was a breath of fresh air."
Cons: "There was only one *tiny* negative... baggage. It would have exceeded my expectations if baggage was included instead of an additional fee. But this is wouldn't deter me from flying with American Airlines."
Cons: "We were told the overhead was full, so we had to check our bags, but once we boarded there were complete compartments empty. I suspect they were just trying to depart earlier."
Pros: "Speed from Seattle to Charlotte. We made up for some lost time. Two empty seats beside me because I changed my seat assignment when attendant announced flight was not full."
Cons: "The plane was 2 hours late in arriving for pickup in Seattle. This was difficult for passengers with connections in Charlotte. I was fortunate because CLT was my final destination. Plane carpet was dirty."
Pros: "Crew were friendly"
Cons: "Ac was broke on plane, no wifi or entertainment options, lots and lots of being kept in the dark waiting and waiting after already boarding the plane or landing on the runway"
Pros: "Kind and attentive crew"
Cons: "Was a bit delayed"
Cons: "Your plane needs outlets to charge electronics. Unless your gonna show movies on your flights, ppl need a way to entertain themselves for the flight. If they burn through all their battery power, it's an inconvenience to try to charge it in the airport when they land. All of the outlet Chargers in Chicago, Seattle and Philly were broke as well. The U tied wing was amazing. Your prices are great but to keep ppl from rather paying more just for one or two more luxuries, try fixing this."
Cons: "Too many levels of passengers"
Cons: "My flight was changed 3 times-- always pick a window seat and was changed to aisle seat. The attitude at the ticket counter was "you're lucky to get any seat", flight was overbooked, the boarding process and deplaning were absurd with all the people bringing on way too much carry on luggage !!! It takes almost 30 min to get off the plane!!"
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: "arrived alive"
Cons: "If you're remotely claustrophobic this is not the flight or aircraft you want to be in. When the flight was booked and paid for I was under the impression that I would have a seat on the plane. As it turned out in order to board the plane I had to pay extra to secure a seat. If this is not a "bait and switch" operation I don't know what would qualify."
Pros: "AA has been good to me--- Gold card a big help."
Cons: "The LAX concourse could at least 2 more coffee shops in addition to Starbucks.The wait was 40 minutes at Starbucks to get a cup of coffee!!! Get on the ball LAX!! We need our caffine in the morning."
Pros: "My window seat"
Cons: "I wasn't able to check in to my flight 24 hours prior to my flight on my AA app and or website. Also wasn't able to check in at kiosk at airport therefore had to wait in line to check in with a clerk which slowed my whole trip mood down."
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."
Cons: "I would not change a thing the flight was wonderful and the stewardess Virginia great"
Pros: "Seats were fairly comfortable"
Cons: "No in flight movie"
Pros: "The flight crew was helpful"
Cons: "I got stuck in Dallas overnight with no place to stay and no compensation"
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."
Pros: "Crew onboard was fine"
Cons: "Flight delay with min amount of explanation"
Pros: "The crew did a great job."
Pros: "It was a pretty good flight. Everything was great other than I felt very rushed and felt like I bothered the flight attendant when I asked for sugar with my tea. I tried to ask for a stir stick with my sugar but she had already moved on. The flight was also very cold."
Cons: "The temperature could have been warmer (i had pants and 4 shirts on and still felt cold). I also felt like I was rushed and unable to get all the items I needed with my tea from the female flight attendant."
Cons: "We need to stop turbulence, it freak me out."
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: "Seat was comfortable but little leg room."
Cons: "Difficult to find outlets between seats."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed and despite assurances by United staff at the gate in Seattle that we would make our flight in SFO to Zürich we were too late and we missed our flight to Zürich. 14 hours later we are still at SFO trying to get on a flight to Frankfurt then on to Venice. We shall see if it actually happens. The couple we are traveling with gave up and went back home to Boise. They also bought their tickets through Kayak."
Cons: "Lost bags and every time I called to find out where they were I would get a different story. I was told it would be on the next flight for the next 5 flights."
Cons: "All 4 flights delayed by more than a half hour last leg 1.5 hours united sucks!"
Cons: "The plane was delayed in WA DC and the staff did nothing to help with transfers in Addis Ababa and I missed my connection."
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: "No leg room very uncomfortable seating"
Cons: "My friend and I have taken our hiking packs to Alaska, California, Washington, and all along the East coast. Never have we been asked to check our packs. I was mostly surprised, at first. Once I was seated a man in front of me had his hiking pack and two ukuleles in their cases, neither of which could fit under his seat. That's when I became frustrated. O This plane sucks: our knees were slammed into the seat in front of us because the chairs are so close together. No USB plugs. Plane was dirty, scuff marks on the wall and ceiling. There was paper in the pouch that looked like a mouse had chewed on it."
Cons: "Shitty service ,...."
Cons: "Over an hour delay"
Cons: "The seating was the worst I've ever had in my life and I've traveled my whole life. After I finish this trip I will never take United again. Everything else was wonderful"
Pros: "Luggage bag broken by baggage handlers"
Cons: "Luggage bag broken by baggage handlers"
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: "On time."
Cons: "New looking plane but the TVs behind all the chairs were locked without a credit card. The new chairs looked great until you sat in them. I'm 5'10" and my knees were already brushing up against the seatback in front of me. If you push the recline button on the armrest, the chair doesn't go back (of course it doesn't, the person's legs behind me are probably up against my chair anyway). Multiple people around me were also asking around if the chairs recline. I have a mild back injury and sitting up at 90 degrees the entire way was very uncomfortable."
Pros: "More important than the trip home last Wednesday was the reason for the trip. We attended my granddaughter's wedding. Everything else was secondary. Even if the trip had been in a one wheeled barrow, it would have been good. To get to what you want which is the mechanics of the trip. The two people who attended to the aisle chair, most teams were competent. Some hadn't done many passengers so they were fumbling with the straps. I've learned that I almost alway have to ask for one at the gate where they check or issue, (what's it called, loading permits, some kind of pass, not landing pass. loading pass. I can't remember and my wife has gone to bed.) Well, they have to come up with an aisle chair because I've only got 1 1/2 legs. I always make it to the seat on the plane, but the competency of the various crews is uneen. Sorry my answer is so nonspecific but I don't remember one airline from another. Great people all, get the job done."
Cons: "Not much I don't like. They get us there That is the main thing. Sometimes when the plane stops after it has pulled away from the Jet Way, the pilot gives an explanation that I find unfulfilling, not enough details. I suppose if they explained more, other fliers would find the explanation too verbose. I can live with it. Again this is about all flights and airlines. Nothing stands out, such as, " this awful thing happened when we left San Francisco.""
Cons: "Sitting on runway for almost an hour bc of ground stop in San Francisco"
Pros: "The flight"
Cons: "The time"
Cons: "The fact that I was stranded in Colorado due to weather and they would not refund my ticket even though I had purchased insurance. They wouldn't even give me a credit. Will have to think twice about doing business through KAYAK and United from now on."
Pros: "Crew was very pleasant and helpful. Comfort is OK but that's because we shelled out $35 per seat extra."
Pros: "Comfortable seats. Easy connection to movies."
Pros: "Delays 2 hours"
Pros: "The flight was smooth"
Cons: "The air hosts were in friendly and didn't say goodbye. The cabin was improperly pressurized and hurt my ears going up and landing. My ear is still popping."
Pros: "You have the most rude csr. I was driving to the airport and blew my tire. An emergency. I had to call customer service for help as we were worried about missing the flight. Tried to fix this. Your csr was unhelpful. He tries to charge me $500 to change my flight. I was having an emergency. Out of my hands and you want me to pay $500? I already am stressed about blowing a tire at 65mph on I5 and missing a flight and this is what I get. Rude, unhelpful, hardly intelligible person. It was an emergency. I had purchased insurance and he said it did not apply. I will not buy insurance or use your airline again. And I will tell my family this and they will not use your service either."
Cons: "Nothing now."
Pros: "Good drinks"
Cons: "There is no access to entertainment for free at all, and the food (snack) is too basic"
Cons: "No power in seats, no in-flight TV/movie without paying, but a short enough flight it was okay."
Cons: "No space for even one carryon and I was told that the luggage space is not associated with my seat. People have more than 2 can bring them on board yet I have to check in and my valuable items were inside"
Cons: "Over an hour late in the middle of the night early morning after Rabbi from Houston to Fort Lauderdale and uncomfortable seats hard to sleep in for a redeye maybe good for regular day flying by too tight too cramped and the boarding process was so chaotic because they had too many suitcases and they had to take them out and then that made a stand in line waiting and waiting and waiting and waiting and a poor man on crutches was waiting forever and we were smelling the exhaust fumes"
Pros: "Flight was on time and boarding was smooth"
Cons: "Full plane it felled very cramped."
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: "Blonde in front of me :)"
Cons: "There is no plug in"
Pros: "My seat"
Cons: "Snacks weren't very good"
Pros: "Download the United App (before takeoff! Or you'll have to pay). The App has some good movies and you can watch them free of charge."
Pros: "Typical flight. Crew was fine, nothing great or memorable. Free movies on devices are nice - although it would be nice for gate agents to mention it prior to boarding so guests without cell service could download the app on the airports wireless prior to boarding if they didn't already have it."
Pros: "I'm never traveling with United again."
Pros: "Very friendly and helpful staff."
Cons: "The fact that we had a connecting flight to minot from Denver. Arrived late to Denver because of weather, but my stroller that I had left on the jetway in Seattle was never put on the plane which I didn't know until I got to minot. I was going to wait for it in denver, but I would have missed my flight to minot had I waited 5 more minutes. We arrived to minot only to find out that our 3 suitcases, one stroller and 2 car seats were never in the flight. Awful! And my connecting flight was even delayed an extra 55 min so I don't quite know where my things are."
Pros: "overall the trip was pleasant, i dont like my 1 carryon be selected to not go in the overhead when groups like couples or families get to take on a few - but i did receive my carryon in a timely fashion considering we were not let off board after 15 min of landing"
Pros: "Can't sleep sitting up. Pretty funny watching everyone try..."
Cons: "Being stuck in DC"
Pros: "The staff was pleasant and helpful."
Cons: "The flight was late but that was at no fault to the airline."
Pros: "Both flights were early, which was nice for a change."
Pros: "Everything not TSA related."
Cons: "The racist OKC TSA. The line was moving along and the TSA agent sitting behind the podium checking boarding passes put his hand up and asked me to wait there. There weren't that many people in the lines, so I was wondering why. His partner at the other podium watched him quizzically, as did I, as he paced left and right, looking at nothing then sat back down again and stared at nothing. All the while the line for screening grew smaller and smaller. The other agent asked him, "what are you doing?" He responded by saying, "You said you were getting THEM all." I didn't understand, but clearly there was some subtext that I was not privy to. She shook her head and said, come up here sweetie. Then she managed to do what he obviously couldn't do: his job. Then my girlfriend and I proceeded to be profiled and had our bags searched. If I didn't have to be in OKC I would avoid that airport like the plague. Unprofessional."
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"
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."
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: "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 )."
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"
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..."
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: "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: "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: "not much"
Cons: "Frontier needs to be more upfront about their extra charges. They claim they are budget flying "done right", but then you have to pay for a seat, pay for a carryon, pay for everything. I should have just paid the extra $40 to fly Delta or Alaska, since I ended up paying this much more for my seats. Also, the flight was almost 2 hours delayed. Will not be flying Frontier again any time soon."
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."
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: "When the troubles started the staff was friendly and apologetic. They tried to help as best they could ands I watched them deal with rude customers with kindness. The flight is bate bones so no food or entertainment to review"
Cons: "We got stuck in Denver for 12 hours workout knowing what was going on. We had to go hunting for answers."
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.

Cons: "Everything else."
Cons: "Bad service, expensive everything"
