Top 4 airlines serving Tampa to Omaha Eppley Airfield
Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews

Cons: "The comfort of the seat, the food"
Cons: "Everything else"
Pros: "Nice ride, entertainment available and arriving a little early was a plus."

Pros: "Check-in agent was very pleasant even through having to deal with a number of cancelled flights."

Pros: "Easy boarding, helpful crew, on time, informative pilot"
Cons: "Fewer and fewer choices for beverage and snack"
Pros: "The service and snack selection is better than the other large US carriers. Delta studio is a decent replacement for the lack of PTVs on these planes."

Cons: "Delayed flight. However, I know this sometimes out ot the airlines control."

I don't think it's fair that I paid for a full seat and only was able to use half of my seat. I was incredibly uncomfortable the entire flight.

Pros: "Average. Expectation for US airlines are so low this flight score average."
Pros: "I liked the way the AA gate supervisor too charge of the problem and solved it, with great deal of personal imvolvement and follow up. Also check-in crew was very much the best. I would say that AA showed the best of passages care to me. Truly outstanding."
Cons: "Because of a mixup, though not of AA doing, I was literally forgotten at the gate. However, AA personnel showed the very best of can-do attitude and got me home for Thanksgiving. I am very proud of everyone working at AA at the TPA airport."

Cons: "lost time and monies...and opportunities."
Pros: "That we arrived an hour earlier than expected"
Cons: "Someone was allowed to trade seats with the crack head that ended up next to me that kept sexually harassing me and even bit me during the flight. Not to mention the less than closet space that cramped me as I tried to sleep off the flight."
Cons: "I called your customer service department which I believe is in India or Pakistan three times to ask them to help with an alternative flight and each time I got different information, when I asked to speak to a supervisor I was told by the punk on the end of the phone that that wouldn't be possible. I asked for his name and employee number and he told me his name was Michael, difficult to believe when he sounded Indian"

Cons: "I honestly can't come up wirh something I didn't like ."

Pros: "Boarding process was quick and staff was decent."
Cons: "Tiny seats, everyone was uncomfortable because of this. No in flight entertainment."
Cons: "I was delayed out of Newark due to the arrivung flight coming in late. When i landed in charlotte, i sprinted across the airport and missed the connection by 2 minutes. Rules are rules, i understand thwy cant reopen the flight for me. It happens. The frustrating part was when aa refused to comp me a hotel room. I got a voucher for a discount. The discount worked out to be 6 dollars. Not a pleasant experience."
Pros: "The crew had Halloween candy they bought themselves. It shows they care."
Cons: "Catering didn't happen. The pilot told us early, apologized and said we would arrive a little early to make up for it."
Pros: "I flew first class. Philadelphia airport is horrendous. I chose to fly first class to avoid lines and make flying by my lonesome go more smoothly. There are no special lines for first class there are absolutely no perks to flying first class out of Philly. The first class flight attendant was rude. They ran out of hot food by the time they got to me so I was served yogurt ... I don't eat yogurt. I waited 40 minutes for my luggage to arrive at baggage claim. The flight to Philadelphia from Tampa was a good experience. They had first class lines. The airport was cleaner. The flight attendant Steve, was kind and professional. I was served a hot lunch. I'm a diabetic and when my blood sugar went low he got me orange juice quickly. I waited maybe 10 minutes for luggage at baggage claim. However with the horrific experience in Philadlephia I may never fly American again. Definitely will never fly out of Philadelphia again. I was told by the woman who I sat next to on the way home that she hates American and usually flys Delta for her business trips."
Cons: "AVOID FLYING OUT OF PHILADELPHIA!!!"

Pros: "Friendly staff, on time"
Cons: "No issues"
Cons: "NEVER GOT THE TICKETS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
Pros: "Small seats, no consideration for disabled travelers. Pretzels suck. One 30 min tv show on 2.5 hour flight. No bathroom for handicap. Cheap airfare is the only reason I fly American. One attendant asked me, with attitude, if I was going to get off the plane...before realizing I can't physically walk. Her face turned white as a ghost when she realized what she had said and how she had said it."
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Departure on time, arriving on time. Great flight"
Pros: "comfortable seating"
Cons: "For the crew members not to speak so loudly in the back while people are sleeping on overnight flights. If the entertainment is going to be through an App on your person devices charging outlets should be available."
Pros: "I like the comfort and the cheap prices of the fear rates"
Cons: "American cancelled flight after all day wait because they could not find a first officer."
Cons: "Not good my carry on bag they send it under and they said I get it at my final destination"
Cons: "My flight was cancelled I am told due to lack of crew. What the heck??? It took me all day to get home waiting on standby flights."
Cons: "I was delayed for an hour leaving Tampa and my connection in Charlotte was canceled. So I did not get into JFK until 12:15 in the morning. I asked for a food voucher from American in Charlotte and was denied after waiting so many hrs in Charlotte to get on a 10.05pm to jfk, that was terrible."
Pros: "Hetti g home"
Cons: "Checking in terrible over two to get checked in and boarding. Cabin service very very slow and to top it all our luggage did now show at destination"

Cons: "Small and cramped seats."
Pros: "This flight was good better than I thought it would be crew very nice."

Cons: "Seat was broken and light didn’t work. Terrible response when I pointed it out."
Pros: "The crew were always really helpful and kind. They were happy to speak English or Japanese."
Cons: "Despite stitching when I could and as soon as I could. Lower back buttocks hurt pretty bad half way through the flight. This is a knock on the airline industry and not so much ANA. Comfort levels start diminish when you try to squeeze as many seats as you can into airplane. Especially, for people like me who are at least 6' tall. Also, the food was very meh. This was surprising because all my other experiences with ANA were quite the opposite."
Pros: "Cheap price"
Pros: "Crew was pleasant served a snack and drink, flight was good got us there on time pleasantly surprised thanks United ."
Cons: "Slow boarding process should use front and rear boarding but then again all airlines do it and flight boarded 30 minutes behind schedule"
Cons: "United and AL never helped rebook my flight from Chicago to Omaha. Spent too much time and money to get back home."
Cons: "From the surly check in personnel, to the confused boarding. Even less charming than usual. The flight was scheduled to depart at 11:40 from Tampa to Newark. Twenty minute delay for boarding and then additional 40 minute ground delay. Flight scheduled from 11:40 to 2:20 p.m. Onboard the flight attendant came through with the food carte. Were any of the "lunch" items available? "No, we only have snack items on this flight." But it's during lunch time... "It's not a long enough flight." WHO COULD MAKE THIS UP? We declined to complain for fear we would be thrown from the plane. Oh yes, I have 1,800,000 miles on United."
Cons: "Seats so cramped. Fat person next to me invaded my space in my middle seat"
Cons: "horrible service representative in newark."
Pros: "Quick flight, good service"

Pros: "The crew , living on time"
Cons: "I had no dislikes"
Pros: "The kindness of the staff."
Cons: "Having to go back to Denver because of a storm-in Omaha."
Pros: "Able to change flights"
Cons: "Original flight had maintainence issue... Three hour wait. Hat to change flight to Huston instead of Chicago for connecting flight to Seattle."
Cons: "No food, no entertainment, uncomfortable seats. Like riding in a cattle car."
Pros: "Flight left on time"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 8 hour and then canceled. 1.5 hour flight between Chicago & Omaha. Weather was gorgeous in both places. Will ever fly united again for this."
Cons: "Late arrival made gate connection close. Then we were delayed anyway - see next flight. notes."
Cons: "The delays appear to be more frequent and for longer periods than in the past. No apologies, no concessions - just high prices and jam-packed planes. I have tired of United's disregard for their customers."
Cons: "The crew was pretty rude on this flight for some reason."
Pros: "Flight is okay but may turn horrible when one is flying on an EMPTY stomach . At least they could add a few dollars to the ticket price and carry out this most needed thing --- FOOD"
Pros: "No delays and on time arrivals, courteous staff"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Very friendly service"
Pros: "But I know how flying United used to be in the past, and it'seems just not the same big standard of service, as the flight attendants aren't as gracious and selfless as they once were. I fly Delta more often because they've retained a higher standard of service, i.e. graciousness toward the passengers, perhaps because they're based in the South where that still counts. I was a tour manager & took 32,000 customer service calls for Williams Sonoma so I know that a cheerful, efficient attitude is a choice, and not a hard thing to accomplish with good psychology incorporated into a lot of training programs today."
Cons: "See above"
Cons: "I specifically said the aisle seat and on both flights United put me on a middle seat and on a window seat. Both flights were late. I almost lost my connection flight. It was so late that I didn't have time to eat or use the bathroom in my layover. As soon as I got into the plane they closed the doing because my first flight was super late. Then on the food service I wanted to buy food and by the time they got to my aisle they didn't have anything ( just the horrible pretzels) I'm super disappointed with United."
Pros: "I was very happy with the crew and how efficient they were."
Cons: "I did not like that I had to upgrade to get a boarding pass."
Cons: "The snacks. Zesty ranch were not very good. No wifi available Delayed texts were not accurate"
Pros: "Boarding personnel was friendly"
Cons: "Very hot, air was blowing out warm Flight attendant was put out when I couldn't figure out how to open over head compartment She also was snotty to the ppl in front of me when they wanted a can to drink not just a glass and she ASKED them then said "are you really going to drink the whole thing?""
Pros: "Flight was on time, clean aircraft and friendly crew."
Pros: "CHANGE OF FLIGHT WARNINGS"
Cons: "United Airlines needed to repair plane caused a delay. But Safety First ;)"
Cons: "As an international traveler I find it annoying to have to pay for my bags on an internal domestic flight. There should be some reciprocation with partner airlines to cover baggage if coming from international to domestic flights"
Cons: "We boarded 40 minutes late, and there was no communication as to why or how long we would be waiting: Also, it was a full flight and there were no prior requests to check bags or how to board. Boarding took a very long time, once we finally started, because there was very little organization and they were taking bags to check once they didn't fit, while people were still getting on the plane. Also, crew members were holding up the line."
Pros: "Flight was on time leaving and was early landing"
Cons: "Leg room"
Pros: "It was a quick effiicient flight. Boarding and security was a breeze."
Cons: "Peanuts and a few movies should not kill their budget. Especially if you have acreens in every seat. Charging $7 for a 2 hour flight is very expensivey"
Cons: "Flight didn't actually take off. Terrible updates regarding flight status."
Pros: "United has become the top low service/high cost Airline. I'm 6'3" and Found myself in a position for hours on end where I could not move my legs. Even with the seat in front of me upright my knees would touch it while my butt was fully up against my seat. Offered is a single drink but not even a lousy bag of pretzels. The entertainment is down to direct tv with a menu that is hard to navigate, earplug connections that need you to hold the plug so it will work and no option to pause or start when you want."
Pros: "NOTHING!!!!!! the worst experience traveling!!!"
Cons: "I did not like the way I was treated AT ALLL!!!! THE UNITED AIRLINES STAFF was HORRIBLE!!!!! NEVER FLYING WITH THEM AGAIN!!!!!"
Pros: "The staff were friendly and very helpful when my family member became sick on the plane and required a wheelchair. They were very easygoing and accommodating about it."
Cons: "I paid for the tv package both ways, and the movies I had watched were all the same on the way back, which felt like I had wasted money."
Pros: "They tried. Booked on next day out of a different airport. No help with transport or hotel because not their fault."
Cons: "Last flight was deleyed and finally got in the air by 2 and ended up turning around and going back to the airport. Once I got there they told me they didn't have flights for the next 3 days so I was stuck in sanfransico airport by myself after paying over 700 on my ticket."
Pros: "The plane was roomy... The flight attendants were pleasant... The bag checkin was inexpensive... Quality and excellent custoner service. I have traveled many airlines... United is by far my favorite after this experience... Thank you!"
Pros: "The flight was delayed 38 minutes. Boarding was not pleasant. Never have a Stewart come by. No entertainment."
Pros: "No problems whatsoever...in fact, we arrived 10 minutes early."
Pros: "very comfortable ride, no bumps at all."
Cons: "no snacks, didnt have my debit card to pay for the ones for sale"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Flight delay times"
Pros: "We liked everything we HAD the BEST time!"
Pros: "The safety video played"
Cons: "Everytime I fly United the flights are always delayed. You changed my departing flight time THREE TIMES! I travel 3-5 times a year, usually only fly southwest, and I have never seen that happen."
Pros: "* Comfortable seats and friendly crew. * Fast flight once we got on the air."
Cons: "* Plane was delayed leaving. * LENGTHY sales pitch for the Frontier credit card during the flight. * Weird guy next to us played and sang along to country/western music the whole flight ... with NO earbuds. * Weird guy next to us announced the Nebraska towns he recognized from the window."
Cons: "Will not be using. Hidden charges doe luggage. No complimentary drinks. Filthy conditions. Will not be using frontier ever again."
Pros: "Service was fast and friendly and very efficient!!"
Cons: "Got to airport, showed flight wasl on time. Get to gate find out flight delayed from screen behind boarding gate. All official Frontier sites say on time. Finally after about an hour all official screens show flight delayed 4 hours. (initial delay was 6). 2 hours after that a person from Frontier came to our gate. explained that plane was replaced in Cleveland. They did give us 10,oo vouchers but by that time we all had pretty much eaten."
Pros: "The counter attendant was helpful to find another flight."
Cons: "The delays that are caused by the very slow computers at the ticket counters. I did not like that I had to 'somehow' get to Orlando to get into the next flight to NJ. Even though I arrived 1 hr before the flight."
Pros: "Checking in was quick."
Cons: "Cramped seating. You didn't tell us about the extra charge on the carry on and if you did it was too hidden."
Pros: "Flights were on time"
Cons: "Nickel and dime you to death."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Plane was 1.5 hours late. Seats are terrible. Charge for everything."
Pros: "Perfect landing"
Cons: "I didn't have a pillow!"
Pros: "The boarding process was quick and the crew was very nice and funny!! They tried to keep everyone laughing and calm in a unusual situation."
Cons: "Although I understand the weather is out of your control, this was by far the bumpiest ride I have every taken. The turbulence was scary and the first third of the flight we were unable to move about or relax!"
Cons: "I had a 2.5 hour flight that landed around midnight-- unfortunately I was unable to sleep at all during the flight. Even though there are no complimentary drinks or snacks, the flight crew turned the lights on for over an hour so they could ask each patron if they wanted to purchase anything. The seats are tiny and I could barely fit my 5'3" frame legs comfortably in front of me. Do yourself a favor and pay more for a real airline."
Cons: "Crew was helpful. Arrived early. Can't rate food or entertainment as there is none. On Fronteir it's easiest to accept the cost of checking a bag because the carry on fee is punitive."
Cons: "Baggage fee info on site makes me feel that i have to pay for every carry on even small bag"
Pros: "This was a super cheap flight. I already knew about the carry-on charges, so I didn't bring any luggage. This is a great airline for those who know the add-on charges in advance and can comply."
Pros: "Loved that the pilot introduced himself and he was very upbeat and pleasant. Stewardesses were pleasant and self-assured. Overall, making me more comfortable with flying because we do not fly very often. We were seated in aisle 4 and it seemed a bit more noisy in front rather than in the rear of the plane. There was some turbulence, but not as much as when we flew to Florida two weeks ago."
Cons: "Our flight was scheduled for 7:55 pm. We arrived at the Frontier Counter about 5 pm and had to wait for approximately an hour before any Frontier representative arrived to begin the checking-in procedure. If this is the procedure at Tampa Airport, then more seating should be available in the check-in areas to accommodate those elderly persons who cannot stand for long periods of time."
Cons: "We had to cancel & need to rebook. Have had no help to do so. Maleta Dunne"
Pros: "It was good,on time and pretty comfortable"
Cons: "Not enough water and to much ice"
Pros: "Quick and efficient loading of passengers. Flight was on time leaving and arrived early. The flight attendants were pleasant and the safety speech very funny."
Cons: "Seats very tight for the price I paid. A rude passenger passed gas 4-5 times which was horrific."
Pros: "Boarding and arrival went smoothly."
Cons: "Cramped uncomfortable seats, the tray tables are about the size of a postcard, on top of fees that were not mentioned at all during my booking process (ie, carry on fee, you need to pay for -everything- on the flight including sodas/coffee/water they would give you for free on other airlines). I would suggest springing for a different airline at a higher cost because you'll be more comfortable and it'll end up costing you about the same in the end."
Cons: "the lady at the counter told me that my bag was ok if i told some things out , i threw away some things i wanted came back and she preceeded to tell i still had to pay 45 dollars and she did not tell me that so i lost my samples and am very angry"
Pros: "Would rather pay more for v tickets with another airline. Horrible. Have to pay for everthing. Will never ride with them again"
Cons: "Worst costumer service I have ever dealt with. Spoke with three employees that each told me to do something different. Finally, spoke to a department head and was told that his employees were misspoken. Who trains these guys?"
Pros: "The pilot was very friendly, I liked his tie. The copilot was also friendly."
Cons: "The rest of the staff were rude and unprofessional. The chairs were so uncomfortable. There was no complimentary drink, and when you ask for just water the staff rolls their eyes and gives it to you as if it was the biggest inconvenience for them. When they approach you with the cart they say, "Is anyone purchasing anything?" I also didn't like that there was hardly any announcements on the loudspeaker to let us know about what is happening, or when we might approximately be landing."
Cons: "flight was an hour off with no explanation as to the cause. Seats did not recline and were terribly uncomfortable."
Pros: "The crew on my return flight was much more personable than on the flight out. Boarding and unboarding were super easy (no checked baggage for my flight)."
Cons: "THE HIDDEN FEES ARE CRAZY RIDICULOUS! Sure the flight starts out cheap, until you realize you have to pay for carry-on bags, and another fee when you pick your seat! Overall my flight cost was $130 more than anticipated with the hidden fees. The seats on the flight to my destination were old and uncomfortable and my seat did not recline (and I paid $30 for the super stretch seating)."
Pros: "Comfortable plane"
Cons: "Delayed 3.5 hours"
Pros: "Left and arrived on time."
Cons: "Charged extra for EVERYTHING from seat selection to carry on bags to watching SILENT TV to even a cup of coffee!!!! Turned my $328 fare into about $450!! ABSURD and OUTRAGEOUS!"
Pros: "friendly crew"
Cons: "same as above"
Pros: "Assistance provided with change request."
Pros: "able to get a seat assignment if desired. Crew was great.. Cabin Temperature was comfortable. Seat did not recline. Departed on time"
Cons: "having to purchase food/drink, but who cares when the price is so good. Site leads you to believe you have to buy a seat and pay for any baggage, you really don't have to"
Pros: "I liked having an assigned seat."
Cons: "Paying extra for a bag."
Pros: "There should be another category here, 'Price'. Frontier was cheap, we flew around Thanksgiving and it wasn't bad for that time period. Frontier is all about being as cheap as possible. That's their business model. You have to pay for everything extra so that the base tickets are cheap. Want to select a seat instead of a random one? You gotta pay. Want to carry on a bag or check a bag? You gotta pay. So we packed all our stuff in one bag and factored that into the cost. If you can get away w/ just a backpack under the seat, you're gonna fly for cheaper. I love the way that works."
Cons: "The seats weren't particularly comfortable, but it was a 3 hour flight. Again.. not disappointed given the price."
Cons: "I agree with "the price for the trip does not include that you have to pay for Carry-on, which is an odd expense to passengers since carry on charge would equal up to at least $60 - they are charging the customers for every single thing. Additionally, Frontier isn't a participant of the TS-Pre Check program, which Frontier should advertise."
Pros: "The $100 certificate as an apology!"
Cons: "The 5 hour delay."
Cons: "After we boarded and got ready to take off, the captain announced that we would be pulling back into the gate because one of the engines wouldn't start. Other than that the flight was fine. Charged for a soda after being delayed. Also charged a "seat fee" on top of the ticket price. Is there an option not to sit?"
Pros: "on time no delays"
Cons: "Two and a half hours late. No one seemed to have received a delay message from the airlines. Their excuse- one employee didn't show up for work that morning, so they've been running late all day! What a way to run an airline- one person doesn't show up for work, so hundreds and hundreds of customers wait hours, miss connections, and have their plans ruined."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Having to pay for seat is ridiculous"
Pros: "The flight was so early there were no long lines anywhere, except security. But thatvwas becauee at the time they have a smaller staff at security. I am NOT complaining about the longer lines at security, just know that it takes longer because of 09/11. I would fly frointer again."
Pros: "Fastest plane ride I ever been on. We left on time and arrived at our destination on time. I have absolutely no complaints"
Pros: "The airport agents and crew were really nice and helpful. Checked in online but forgot boarding passes. They printed them, no problem and no charge. Our checked bag was overweight. Knew this might be a problem when we left and brought an empty backpack just in case. They let us rearrange our stuff until we were under the weight limit. They kept a sense of humor about it too. The flight crew came around asap to see if you wanted anything. Faster than other more expensive airlines I've been on. Boarding and getting off went smoothly. Flight was on time. Even paying for checked bag and seat choice our fare was still cheaper than other airlines. Only opted to pay for seating as we brought our grandson since the tickets were so inexpensive. Being his first time flying I thought it would be easier for him and other passengers to have people he knew in both seats as well as I could make sure he had a.window seat. Great value, good quality. If your looking for all the extras, not here. To get to where your going, safely and relatively comfortably, with friendly personnel this is for you. Do add in the cost of luggage and seat if you like certain ones, for this and other airlines, to compare and find the best value for you."
Cons: "Food options weren't great but for a short flight it was fine. Possibly different choices on a longer or mealtime flight? No more expensive than airport, in some cases cheaper. No entertainment to speak of, although you could pay for movies/tv. For short early am flight didn't need it."
Pros: "on time and landed on time. comfortable seat"
Pros: "Only that it was non stop. Everything else was uncomfortable and more expensive that advertised. NEVER AGAIN FLY FRONTIER!!!"
Cons: "Terrible seating, hidden costs, not on time, rude customer service on phone (phillipines), broken luggage."
Cons: "I did not fly"
Pros: "Cheap flight-in the beginning"
Cons: "The seats are 'pre-reclined' which means your sitting strait up and down, my knees where in the chair in front of me for three and a half hours. My carry on bag for both legs of the trip where $70. So in the end a more expensive ticket that includes bags, free seat selection, a drink and a snack is well worth it. Unless your really short, this was the most cramped 3 hours of my life."
Pros: "Great price trumps tight seating."
Pros: "Took off on time. Landed on time. Flight attendants were pleasant."
Cons: "There was a delay which would have left me stranded in Trenton, NJ at 1AM. I had to pay full price from a different airline to make it to my destination."
Pros: "It was inexpensive to fly comparatively, the ticket counter made sure I made my flight from Cleveland even with the airport remodeling"
Cons: "The seats due to weight reductions have no accommodations for tall passengers like other airlines. Then again it's a commercial airliner and comfort equals weight and weight equals overhead and money. So the trade-off was expected. The seats could be adjustable for height though."
