Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Quick flight. Friendly pilot"
Cons: "Perfect flight!"
Pros: "The pilot was kind and to the point."
Cons: "The guy who boarded us told me to wait as his computer could not check me in. 10min later he is rushing me to get on the runway. It was 30min before scheduled take off. I had ordered food and had to cancel my order before the café had finished, so he wasted food and did not get paid and I was hurried and boarded the plane hungry. I probably won't use Cape Air again unless it's an emergency situation"
Cons: "Boarded half hour late. No explanation. Pretty standard on Cape Air these days"
Pros: "The pilot was amazing"
Pros: "Clean plane"
Cons: "Seat is not comfortable. It is too hard. My muscles fell asleep"
Pros: "Amazing view"
Cons: "Warning about what to take from carry-on, since it wasn't available during flight"
Pros: "I had the opportunity to sit in the co-pilots seat! What an amazing experience.. Flight departed on time too."
Cons: "Nothing at all.."
Pros: "Super nice!"
Cons: "One minute into the Flight the Outside Wing Compartment Came unlatched and the Door To it was open about 9” enough that I was watching my Briefcase come close to flying off the plane. Passenger notified the Pilot and they Returned to STL to inspect the Compartment Latch."
Pros: "I flew in from Houston, TX to visit family in Sharon, VT. The closest major airports are Boston and Manchester and both are several hours away. For a few extra bucks, I can fly to Lebanon, NH thanks to Cape Air and save my family members hours and hours of driving. Very convenient. The Cape Air staff and pilots are always super friendly!"
Cons: "The plane can be kind of loud; it is certainly a good idea to pack hearing protection."
Pros: "Reach early"
Cons: "No ac but it’s ok"
Pros: "Flight from Havre to Billings was fine, from check in through security and to the flight. Smoke from CA, OR, NV fires really limited the view, but CapeAir did fine with their service"
Cons: "Seats are a little small, but that is to be expected in such a small plane. Other than that, the flight was great."
Pros: "Staff were great - courteous, professional and friendly. Plane was a fun experience as always."
Cons: "Not Cape Air’s fault, but the smoky haze (from fires in CA, OR, NV) diminished some of the long views - vistas were not quite as beautiful as on past flights."
Pros: "Smooth flight. Nice option to fly to small airport closer to home."
Cons: "Connection booked too close. Missed flight, new flight delayed. Kayak booking does not leave enough time to transfer."
Pros: "Got a shuttle from the plane to my terminal at STL. Very convenient."
Cons: "Rather loud, but I don’t think there was much the airline could do about that. Maybe earplugs."
Pros: "Flight on time. Nice smooth ride. Very friendly pilot."
Pros: "Crew was pilot and helpful in explaining the situation to me."
Cons: "Got bumped from a flight to make way for a pilot in training. The fact that this happened on christmas eve made it even worse. Had to wait until boarding to find out that was being bumped and was told I shouldn't have been allowed to check in."
Cons: "I asked the ground crew for a box that I had checked and was told that it would be forwarded to my next flight. It wasn't. Now cape air is telling me the only way I can get it back is to fly to San Juan and pick it up."
Pros: "The ease of changing flights."
Cons: "Of the three women at the gate one was rude to everyone. The two others seemed ditzy and clueless. The announcements they made were incomprehensible to many in the passenger audience. There was substantial eye-rolling."
Pros: "Friendly & informative pilot, smooth efficient ground crew: they didn't bang up my vintage Levi's back pack..."
Cons: "No complaints...A+"
Pros: "Shirt flight no food, but bumpy. I almost threw up on a 25 minute flight"
Pros: "Hate crew diligently kept me informed of my bag connecting from my 45 minute late "on time" united flight."
Pros: "Still Stuck in Nantucket. Cape Air cancelled my flight and then didn't put me in another. I'm still stuck in Nantucket."
Pros: "I sat in the copilot seat since plane was so small."
Cons: "Delayed so I missed my connection in Boston. I ran to catch it but the door was closed and they wouldn't let me on, even though plan was still sitting at the gate. I had 8 min to spare."
Pros: "Easy, painless and on time!"
Cons: "Everything was great!"
Cons: "Landing crew in Boston was rude, bossy, and repetitively sciolding, just because I touched the door of the plane. No instructions nor to or warnings were posted, but he kept harassing me and the other passengers.about "our safety"."
Pros: "The flight itself was good, pilot was nice, I got to sit in the copilot's seat which was fun."
Cons: "At the Nantucket airport, they don't let you through security until your flight is called. I heard mine called and went up but the woman at the desk said she hadn't heard it so wouldn't let me through. Ten minutes later, I'm being paged over the intercom. Again, I wasn't let through until I tracked down someone from the airline. By the time I finally got through, my flight had gone and I needed to be rebooked. Incredibly frustrating as the intercom is the only way to know what's going on with your flight, so I couldn't look at a board or anything to know the status."
Cons: "My flight from Rutland to Boston was unexpectedly cancelled with very little notice. I could not reschedule my trip because I needed to catch a separate flight from Boston. My alternative was to drive there and stay the night in a hotel, which was expensive and frustrating. I will be calling for a refund."
Pros: "The pilots were really friendly, the plane was comfortable, and the trip was short. Nice take off and landing. Very smooth."
Cons: "The lady behind me kept showing my seat around and pulling on my hair. Apparently she didn't have enough room or something because it lasted the whole 45 minutes. We hit some turbulence which was pretty rough but not terrible. would have been nice to have arm rests. Also boarding and take off was late and which made me late to my appointments."
Pros: "The view from PR to St Thomas was amazing!"
Cons: "The departure was late for no apparent reason that complicated my meeting with family members in St Thomas."
Pros: "The flight was on time and it was a great flight on a nice sunny day! We arrived earlier than informed at the time of takeoff."
Cons: "Too expensive. 399 for a 40 minute plane ride? Really?"
Pros: "Everything! Staff, captain, plane, efficiency, intimacy of the small plane. I don't love flying - it's a means to an end. But, this flight was fun. No food, but it was a 30 minute flight, so no refreshment needed."
Pros: "All aspects of the flight were smooth on a nice day and I really enjoyed flying at 7k feet. A lot of people don't like flying in small planes but I do. There is no bathroom, food or entertainment available and all of your bags go into cargo. I was the only passenger so it felt like a chartered trip. Arrived about 5 minutes early."
Pros: "I loved the whole experience."
Cons: "They have a bad rap in the Caribbean for bad service and unreliability, as I found out after my bad experiences. I was left stranded in St Croix because even though they charged me for the flight "my name didn't appear on their seat list." And they were like oops nothing we can do sorry. This time, they left me stranded in Puerto Rico. For three days they couldn't rebook me. Flight was cancelled on xmas weekend because the "pilot was over his hours." After they rebooked everyone else on the flight including my boyfriend, their computer wouldn't rebook me for some reason so I had to purchase a ticket to be able to leave. They assured me they would refund me but of course I've been emailing with Cape Air for a week and still no refund. Never flying with them again obviously, and recommend you avoid them if you have connections or need to get somewhere guaranteed. Maybe they have better service on the east coast but they should do a total overhaul of their service in the Caribbean."
Pros: "It's great having the convenience of these flights."
Cons: "People know there is a security process to go through. Make it clear what you need in advance. There is no need to be rude in any way."
Pros: "But it came on the next flight to Rutland and was delivered to my house that evening."
Pros: "I'd probably pay for this flight as just an entertaining ride from above to see Puerto Rico."
Cons: "Flight was canceled and nothing could be done to make it better."
Pros: "Great pilot!"
Cons: "AIRPORT SHUT DOWN TO EARLY AND NO AVAILABLE CAR RENTAL WITH DEBIT CARD. I BECAME STUCK WITH USING TAXI CAB."
Pros: "Crew is very friendly and the views are beautiful."
Cons: "This plane is an 8-seater, so no food, no drinks, no entertainment and no lavatory. Short flight, though, so not a big deal."
Pros: "Great flight Albany to BOS. Cessna turbo prop. Super flight crew. Sure beats driving to Boston."
Pros: "Our pilot, Danielle, was very professional and friendly. The flight was absolutely beautiful. The flight was 22 min in a Cessna, so no food or entertainment needed."
Pros: "*No security (skip TSA) *Private, intimate experience with just 6 other passengers (but without the luxury of a charter since the tiny plane has no amenities, entertainment, food, or even water)"
Cons: "*UNSAFE -- you better hope your pilot doesn't have a heart attack or seizure or even arm cramp mid-air as the shaky, ratchety little 8-seater doesn't have a second pilot. Airline unconcerned w/liability. *Pilot (Captain Darryl) was a jerk, which the ground crew warned us about - unlike Air Sunshine and Seaborne (which we flew to other islands during the same trip), he didn't allow you to take pictures w/your phone in airplane mode. *Price was much costlier than Seaborne and Air Sunshine flights; when I learned of competitors and tried to switch, no cancellation (even within a day of booking). *Customer service almost impossible to reach; long hold times, limited hours. *They commit consumer fraud by charging for carry-on luggage in addition to checked baggage without ever disclosing that prior to the flight (and the normal airline baggage policy doesn't apply). *With much better and cheaper options, NEVER fly this airline for your own safety, cost consciousness, and well-being."
