I explained this would trigger a sinus infection, a common issue for those prone to sinus infections, not to mention it was simply uncomfortable. I asked for this to be addressed. It was not, despite I was told turning down the air might be possible. No follow up was provided. Sure enough, I now have s sinus infection."

Cons: "No movies on less than a two hour flight. Only options for drinks were coffee water and OJ. Was hoping for a tea"
Pros: "I had to change my return flight from JAX (which was handling fairly easily) due to a family funeral. We upgraded our seats to the bulkhead (row 1) and while the leg room was OK, it wasn't exactly what I expected. We did get early boarding. The pilot spoke to us clearly and explained the delay, etc. (due to weather)."
Cons: "The Internet was barely working (and I count on that during a flight). The sound was terrible for the video/audio (using my own headphones). My biggest issue was that my boarding pass on the app was incorrect -- I changed my flight from May 17 to May 22 but the boarding pass still said may 17, so I had to get a paper pass from the ticket counter. This was after I called JetBlue, and they supposedly fixed the problem. The flight was extremely bumpy, the entire way. All this after a 1 hour delay for the flight. Thankfully, we had no connections."
Pros: "Excellent service throughout."
Cons: "The boarding process is very old styled airport bus (no AC mid May) and stairs. It's a big airplane and lots of people, so the process took really long time, and very uncomfortable in the heat. In flight English announcement is barely recognizable due to heavy accent."
Cons: "I was in row 4 and overhead storage was full before I boarded so I had to gate check my bag. This was unfortunate."
Pros: "On time. Courteous and friendly crew."
Pros: "Check-in in Tampa was a breeze. The personnel that assisted us at check-in was helpful and pleasant. She really made a wonderful impression. Lots of smiles."
Cons: "Some of the crew on board seemed very stressed. Not many smiles."
Pros: "Nightmare luggage situation ruined my whole trip and put my reputation in jeopardy because I don't have clothes to wear for jury duty today. I checked my bags personally after going through customs In the connecting baggage area then had a four hour layover and they JETBLUE couldn't get the damn bags on board! This is completely frustrating and costing me money as I miss work/jury duty waiting for luggage. Azores airline did a great job of luggage transfers. For the first time in my life my luggage came up the carousel within the first three bags."
Pros: "Plane was cold on the ground and in the air b"
Pros: "The flight crew were very friendly and worked hard."

Pros: "Left on time, arrived early, perfect landing"
Pros: "Comfortable plane."
Cons: "Overhead space."
Pros: "Fine flight."
Cons: "1:45 delay"
Pros: "The JetBlue service counter was very helpful, and went out of their way to figure out what flight I needed to get to after arriving on my very late connecting flight. The actual flight was very short (1.5 hours), so service on the plane was limited. I don't remember any food for example, but I don't really care. TVs were provided, and free, but I didn't bother using them. Free wifi was slow with spotty service, but did work."
Cons: "JetBlue advertises that they have the most legroom in class, but it didn't feel particularly roomy to me. Alaska offers more in my experience."
Pros: "Comfortable on time flight."
Cons: "Armrest controls for seat-back screen did not function."
Pros: "Nothing to like"
Cons: "Jetblue cancelled the flight 1 hour prior to departure. I had ordered a pkg through Kayak and had a departing flight to Asia from NYC leaving 2 hours after arrival. Instead of booking me on another flight that night to NYC, Jetblue rebooked my ticket for two days later. Even though I shared that we had prepaid the hotel stay and would lose that time in addition to a shortened trip, Jetblue did nothing to help. We were beyond devastated. We found our own ticket to NYC from Delta without help from Jetblue. This experience has left a very bitter taste in my mouth and destroyed my preference for Jetblue."
Cons: "We PAID $30/each to check 2 bags, both ways, so $120 total. Then at the gate, BOTH WAYS, Delta Gate Reps allowed people to check bags for FREE, & pick up at bag claim, just like WE PAID TO DO. NO MORE DELTA FOR US!"
Pros: "On time boarding. Good entertainment options, friendly staff"
Cons: "Everything. Flight got delayed, luggage was sent before i boarded the plane. Terrible service of Delta. Never again using Delta or going to Atlanta. Wasted two days already from my vacation..."

Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "AC was not working properly and it was very hot and miserable trip"
Cons: "Everything else"
Pros: "No entertainment and no food other than snacks."
Pros: "I told the crew I had a short connection time at a far terminal and I was worried because my seat was in the rear of the aircraft and they were able to move me up closer to the front to ensure I got off the aircraft quickly to make my next flight. That was amazing."
Pros: "Movie helped to pass the time this was the longest flight ever I was glad when it was over"
Cons: "I have nothing to complain about"
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Staff was frIendly."
Cons: "One of my bags went to Santa Fe"
Pros: "left on time - landed early. Gate checked my luggage for me."
Pros: "We flew a plane that had 2 row seats. I booked that for my daughter and me as well as seats ahead of an exit so we would have no one behind as. Great seats and they reclined quitea bit. We were very pleased."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "The cost of the ticket"
Pros: "As the flight was over two hours late and a runway at JFK was shut down I opted for a full refund from Delta as I would have been at my destination less than 24 hours. Kayak & Delta was good keeping me informed of changes including the 5 gate changes"
Cons: "Flight delayed due to weather and mechanical.. nightmare! Still not sure when I'll get to DCA . I was suppose to get in at 9:30 pm. Flight from atlanta won't leave until 10:20 pm."
Pros: "Excellent infotainment system"
Cons: "45 min queue to take-off"
Pros: "Easy boarding. Due to bad weather they kept us well informed. One hour late but not their fault."
Cons: "A little chilly in the waiting are."
Pros: "The updated food is a nice change to Delta and a positive one."
Cons: "The attitude of the flight attendants was rude and not a way to act in a customer service industry."
Cons: "Employees at the Atlanta airport have a SERIOUS chip on their shoulders. Just when you thought seats couldn't get any smaller or closer together. Paid for priority boarding but the boarding pass still said zone 3. Employees could care less."
Cons: "Cancelled my flight then re-booked me for the next day; was able to then find a flight same day but 7 hours later. That then was delayed another 4 hours and I had to buy a rental car to drive home instead. Thus far they have been unresponsive in getting me a refund for my travel. Don't fly Delta."
Pros: "Friendly crew, navigation around storm, comfortable flight"
Pros: "I was delayed coming from an international flight and was so thankful for the help from delta at the counter and at the gate. I did lose my bag but that was my fault in the confusion of jfk. I got my bag in 2 days."
Cons: "When i got my bag back the handle wouldn't go down fully. Baggage handlers must've mishandled it and bent something."
Pros: "The flight was good, but the flight attendants were friendly and fun making it better than usual."
Pros: "Overall flight experience was excellent - no delays!"
Cons: "As always, Delta has very little room to store anything in pullback seat back of seat in front of passenger seat."
Pros: "On time...great service!"
Cons: "Seats were a bit narrow."
Pros: "Everyone was very polite"

Cons: "What I didn't like was out of their control!"
Cons: "No entertainment for the whole 5 hr flight. Very bad"

Pros: "delayed. equipment failure."
Pros: "Timely departure."
Cons: "My daughter was traveling alone (as a college freshman) for the second time and her bag was overweight. The counter agent was impatient with her and made her feel embarrassed"
Pros: "The Delta staff at the Marine terminal at La Guardia were fantastic and saved the staff that re-issued tickets at JFK."
Cons: "5 minutes until boarding at JFK we were told to transfer gates; upon arriving by shuttle to the new gate, passengers were informed the aircraft was downsized and 20 people needed to be bumped. I volunteered since I had a flexible schedule so Delta re-issued me a ticket at 9am JFK for a 10am flight out of La Guardia. I trusted them I'd make it in time and they said they called taxis for us so we left to go catch them. Actually, no taxis were to be found so we had to call our own and were significantly delayed. I was in the first group of 5 people to be re-issued and arrive at La Guardia. Everyone else bolted but my new boarding pass didn't work and they actually didn't properly re-issue my ticket as I had been booked as leg 3 of my international flight from Malaysia. After they called three different departments including China they were able to print my ticket at 9:54am so I sprinted through the security and to my gate and was able to somehow make the flight as they were closing the door. However probably 14 or so of the original bumped passengers definitely didn't make it."
Pros: "plane left on time"
Cons: "seats were too close, luggage was delayed,"
Pros: "Everything was fine Food entertainment"
Cons: "Because the flight was delayed a whole day and night I was exhausted. I have been trying to get the $200 delayed trip rebate. I was given no instructions on how to do this finally after speaking to a travel agent I got a phone numbers I could call. Called and was told what web sight to go to. Filled in still waiting for a reply a day later. Not happy. I dout that this write up will get any response. The"
Pros: "Stewardess was great"
Cons: "No recline, no window, no hope. Yet there were other empty better seats!"
Cons: "The stewards crew was very very very rude. The airplane looked like its going to come apart any minute. We could actually see rust in the wings of the airplane. I think the plane should be retired, for the sake of the flyers!!!!"
Pros: "On the flight I got on the 8:20 to Reagan the flight attendances were wonderful! Defiantly made up for me having a aweful time on the 7:20 flight. I loved your flight attendants on this flight!"
Cons: "So I arrived in Atl was on standby for the 7:20 flight to Dca airport I had already paid $50 for standby! I got cleared for this flight and bumped to delta comfort. I was super excited to finally get upgraded! Then the plane had problems we were then again delayed and had to deplane. We were told this would be a 2 hour delay. I proceeded to try an get on the next flight at 8:20 while asking about a window seat the lady told me I would have to pay an additional $19! Well I had already paid $50. So the nice lady put me on that flight after I had already asked for window seat. She put me in the middle seat! I get that planes have problems and flights are delayed! There was so much bad yesterday then good and I feel like delta should know. It's more and more bad everytime I fly! Please fix these problems!"
Pros: "Flight time was short. boarding was organized."
Cons: "No refreshments. (Turbulent weather) makes sense, it felt like there were Windows where they could have offered some water."
Cons: "Landing at Reagan national is generally pretty bad"
Pros: "Got to my destination on time."
Cons: "Air conditioning condensation was dripping on my head the entire flight."
Pros: "Quick hop from Cincinnati to DC - efficient, nice flight."
Cons: "Plane was not clean and had dirty kleenex and yogurt containers in the pouch. Flight attendant told me to just not use the pouch."
Cons: "The gate was so far away for a flight that takes 29 minutes."
Pros: "We actually got food! Not the usual peanuts, pretzels or cookie. Although minimal ( carrots, celery,radishes w/ dip & crackers), it was nice since I had just ran to the gate after a 4 1/2 hr flight from the east coast. Why can't this be done on more flights? What a nice touch!"
Pros: "I found staff everywhere helpful"
Cons: "Original flight scheduled for 11:46 am departure. Four delays with final departure at 7pm. Connecting flight cancelled until next day. Spent night in airport. It would be great to have a secure little sleep space for single travelers. TVs in open areas were too loud and I asked to have them turned down after Monday Night Football. They were but were still very loud and I can sleep through a lot."
Cons: "NO Wifi"
Pros: "Delays. Very hard to rebook. Crew was inattentive. No chargers or TVs. Little overhead bin space. Terrible flight."
Cons: "Fix everything mentioned above"
Pros: "We flew economy, so it was what it was. Not really comfortable."
Cons: "No free inflight entertainment. Did serve a beverage and a small snack. Crew and staff were friendly."
Cons: "Taxi time on both ends were ridiculously long."
Cons: "Business class - never offered food or drink for entire flight."
Pros: "Plane had three delays. Apparently American mechanics are not allowed to strike so they have these fake or very slow mechanical issues."
Cons: "Be on time. We missed our overseas connection and had to buy new tickets to Italy"
Pros: "Good seating and pleasant crew."
Cons: "Board in reverse order so the back of the plane gets filled first"
Pros: "Flight was comfortable and crew was very helpful!"
Cons: "Be on time!"
Cons: "They lost my bag in my layover at DCA. Even with a first class orange tag and 1:10 layover, they didn’t transfer the bag between planes on a Thursday evening. The planes were probably 300 feet away. Clearly their entire luggage tracking systems at DCA are broken. Even with 1:00 connections at O'Hare, DFW, PHL, my luggage has not gotten delayed."
Pros: "It was an average flight"
Cons: "Delay of 2 hrs and it wasn't due to weather"
Pros: "The flight was delayed"
Pros: "Friendly attentive crew"
Cons: "The only entertainment was streaming movies via your own device. Not the end of the world but most people have come to expect having personal video monitors. Delta is adding them but AA is taking away."
Cons: "Baggage lost."
Cons: "I'm a tall person and there wasn't an option to get a seat with any extra leg room. Additionally, the gate staff were not helpful or informative about the flight and rushed when it was time to board."
Pros: "The free entertainment."
Cons: "Everything was great."
Pros: "Ease of boarding with the group numbers"
Cons: "Our original flight was cancelled so we were rebooked for a much later flight which impacted our vacation. Call system was not working efficiently."
Pros: "Crew was great. No electrical outlets, wntertainment was mediocre. This was an old 747 that needs an update."
Cons: "The captain had the crew return to their seats during drink service due to turbulence. Despite the fact that there was 2 and half hours remaining in the flight and the turbulence was gone, they never returned to complete the drink service."
Pros: "Very courteous crew.pilot was amazing!! Landed in tough wind"
Cons: "Never knew flying domestically with a company named American would be so impossible. A true joke. Never had such difficulties traveling about. Super unsatisfiee and will not be traveling with them again. I urge everyone considering to purchase other airlines as well."
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."
Pros: "The flight attendant was super super nice and helpful"
Cons: "Had to rush to catch this connecting flight. At boarding time, which we just made, the previous flight had just landed and people starting to deplane. All we would have wanted was an accurate announcement versus an unfriendly feeling from the gate agent"
Cons: "I hate American airlines. It is the WORST. We were held for almost 4 hours waiting for "maintenance call" then flight was cancelled. THEN it took two full hours to get back checked bags. By ths point it was 5 pm, had been at airport since 8:30 -- no food offered, no apologies, not even a glass of water. Of course, no flights back to US so I was stuck an extra day, completely messed up school and work. I THOUGHT I was booking with Iberia but it was a code share. I WILL NEVER fly American Airlines again!"
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"
Pros: "Food was okay.."
Cons: "Had a bulk head seat that turned out to be not one."
Cons: "Too cold on the plane"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled. I didn't receive a refund or free hotel accommodations. I've been on flights in Africa where free hotel accommodations were standard for a layover over 3 hours. A little embarrassing that an airline in America can't afford a hotel for people stranded in a city overnight."
Cons: "We were rushed onto the plane to sit on the tarmac. After waiting to take off for 45 minutes, we were told that our route had been closed and they were looking into other options. This was a flight from NYC to DC, route is closed? Once we finally got into the air, all was good."
Cons: "ATC delay on take off and then a 10 min wait for a gate a DCA. Just disappointing in adding delays."
Cons: "Horrible experience in the ground system, they charged me $240 for my bags and the staff are really confused."
Pros: "Pulled from get on time. Short hold on runway. Easy landing."
Cons: "Still arriving in Washington where we have no gate. Being on time stinks because you still sit on runway. AT the destination. I would focus on quicker turn around and less accommodation of highly variable flight times in tight NE corridor"
Pros: "Very friendly staff, on time, most of all very comfortable."
Cons: "The Oppurtunity that could improve is the boarding in plane to have passengers board in groups."
Cons: "We sat on the tarmac after landing for 40+ minutes."
Pros: "It was fine"
Cons: "It was a full flight, but I cannot complain"
Pros: "Great crew!"
Cons: "Pilot did a great job getting here, but gate was blocked by a fuel truck and sat on the tarmac for an extra 20 minutes! Pilot has now asked for a tug to pull us in."
Pros: "Boarding process was quick and staff was decent."
Cons: "Tiny seats, everyone was uncomfortable because of this. No in flight entertainment."
Cons: "They could've fed us or least gave us more drinks when we were rerouted and stick in the Norfolk airport for hours."
Cons: "Plane from BDL was delayed which led do a missed connection in DCA. Rebooked on the 335 pm flight which is 3 hours later than my original arrival time. Very inconvenient for me as I had previous plans."
Pros: "Good view"
Cons: "Breakfast does not have good things to eat. Too cheap ones.."
Cons: "When the pilot took off at LGA he said "everyone here is trying to take off at the same time" so we'd be delayed by 30 min. Not once was there a mention of any other reason. By the time we got to DC I had JUST missed my connecting flight. It was listed nowhere on the departures screen and I realized I had to take an outdoor bus to the other half of the "c" terminal which was very confusing. I got there and had missed the connecting flight and stand in line for 20 min for someone to tell me that I would be stuck in DC overnight. At this point rain had started pouring and they told me that because my mishap was due to weather they would provide no meal or hotel voucher. Weather was not the issue and I was stuck in DC overnight by myself and not compensated for hotels or meals."
Pros: "The crew was good."
Cons: "Washington airport grounded our flight for no apparent reason while we were on the runway in Indy about to take off, then didn't tell us when we could expect the delay to end."
Pros: "The crew went out of their way to see that I was seated easily before the crowd came on board."
Cons: "The cookies are ok but not very refreshing. I prefer Pepsi to Coke. Being in a wheel chair, I didn't have the option to stop at a food place to get something to eat before boarding. It was so extremely cold in the cabin."
Pros: "Everythingit was good"
Cons: "$75 to pay to change the time of flight, is a lot of money for a person who has roundtrip tickets on the same da"
Cons: "American Airlines would not allow my teenage daughter to check in and board her flight because she was three minutes late getting to the airport for the check in time (1 hour prior to flight). (Traffic was backed up due to an accident). She was not checking a bag and had plenty of time to go through security and get to the gate without holding up the plane. She would have been waiting at the gate to board. American Airlines would not budge. Instead, they wanted to put a teenage girl on standby through two flights and two airports with no guarantee she wouldn't be spending a night at the airport. They would not reimburse the ticket either. The AA person I talked with was no peach either. While on the phone with my daughter, I purchased a direct flight from Southwest to get her home. She had the same amount of time (1 hour) to shuttle to another terminal, check in, go through security and board the plane. No problem doing all that with the same time frame and Southwest was happy to help her out."
Cons: "Everything went to plan no delays, or drama."
Cons: "Delayed by approximately 1.5 hours"
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: "Missed All connecting flights because plane was delayed 5 hours at place of origin thanks to United Airlines. Needed an "O ring" for maintenance. A very simple part yet had to locate one in another city. Very poor. Wasted 1 day. Went back home. Rebooked for tomorrow. $20 meal voucher. Pathetic."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Impossible to get entertainment to work"
Pros: "Very helpful, took time to assist me with using computer to print boarding passes. Security check was quick."
Cons: "No entertainment"
Cons: "Seat was broken and light didn’t work. Terrible response when I pointed it out."
Cons: "No entertainment options"
Cons: "Plane was a little tight but overall it was good"
Pros: "The pilot and co-pilot, who was right out of the Air Force, were absolutely amazing! We were going through 45 mph winds and a lot of rain and they handled it like pros — such a great landing."
Cons: "The only thing that I didn't like if I was sure I had the seats together but neither flight had us together."
Pros: "Had the first class seating so the drinks were good and helped the flight by quicker. The crew were very friendly. Quick bording left a few minutes early which is always a plus. Smooth flight very little turbulence."
Cons: "The Wi-Fi was not working on the flight so my plan to use my phone for music or watching a movie fell through rather quickly."
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"
Pros: "Pilot was very communicative and shared when we were approaching turbulence when he was navigating around Hurricane Harvey"
Pros: "They gave me $400 credit, then swapped me onto a separate airline that actually had a direct flight that got me to my destination faster than my original layover flight... so I can't even be mad about it. Actually made my day."
Cons: "I actually have no idea what their flight would have been like... because I flew American Airlines."
Pros: "I general I like United a lot. They're my preferred airline for travel"
Cons: "S6 through s8 won't work on their Wi-Fi entertainment system"
Pros: "The separate lines for group numbers."
Cons: "Kiosks service was confusing. I paid for my baggage and received my boarding pass. However, I was supposed to stay at my kiosk until an agent came. There were 10 kiosks with only 2 agents helping people and no screen notification or sign asking customers to wait. In addition, TSA pre-check is not available at this airport."
Cons: "Seats so cramped. Fat person next to me invaded my space in my middle seat"
Cons: "horrible service representative in newark."
Cons: "Lack of planning. Even though it was specified that I was travelling with a senior citizen. There was a short time between conecting flights. Having my elderly mother having to rush from one gate to other with no assistance whatsoever. Barely making it to the gate on time and luggage getting lost. Still to this time which is around 24 hours later from the flight, there is no response about her bags. Insulin was on checked luggage. She experiencing serious knee pain due to the fast walk from gate to gate. Fast walk being mention since she is old and can't run. Besides that, flights were good."
Cons: "Because of the short connection time the group of people including me made it to the gate a bit late. However the plane was still at the gate and did not leave for another 15 minutes. But they refused to take us on board saying t was too late, as a result: They sent us with the next flight to Chicago instead of Washington DC. My whole schedule was messed up as i had to fly through Chicago. My luggage was lost and i only received it 2 days later. Will file the complaint."
Pros: "Quick flight, good service"
Cons: "Delay on return flight."
Pros: "Friendly crew, absolutely no delays, plane took off within minutes after boarding, flight arrived 13 minutes ahead of schedule, smooth trip."
Cons: "Pretzels as an only option."
Pros: "The crew kept boarding group 5 updated on boarding when there was a lot of people on the jet bridge."
Pros: "direct tv and pretty quick flight"
Cons: "long time to board"
Pros: "Staff great. New plane. Check in a breeze."
Cons: "Airline food. Gross breakfast waffle. Very tight sitting arrangements."
Pros: "Seat is comfortable, and it is nice to be able to recline without having to worry about the person behind you. You still have room to spread out without interfering with the person in the seat next to you."
Cons: "No food because the flight is only 1 1/2 hours long. There should be a larger variety of snacks. Maybe there are and they just weren't presented. First Class lavatory is apparently for anyone now."
Cons: "I think United is improving constently"
Pros: "We arrived very early to our flight. Our flight was cancelled but United switched us to a flight leaving shortly with Delta. They were great."
Cons: "Everything was fine."
Pros: "On the way back had the whole row."
Cons: "The ghetto flight attendant was rude....correcting someone else's child for not saying please but she did it loud and not very professionally. The flight was over booked so on the way there is was thinking I might not get on the flight and was stressful."
Pros: "Flight left on time"
Cons: "Late flight hour and 39 mins"
Pros: "The actual flight was great. It was very easy, the movies were new and good. The food was surprisingly good (as I was coming home from Italy). The crew was great and always nice"
Cons: "The airport was extremely disorganized and I will never fly out of Rome again. Boarding and Unboarding were absolutely awful though"
Cons: "landing was little jerky and food smell made me nauseated."
Cons: "Luggage compartment too small even for a rolling laptop bag"
Cons: "The crew was pretty rude on this flight for some reason."
Cons: "As a military spouse I was not allowed to check a bag free so I paid the fee. When I boarded I noticed many passengers bringing bags on that we're as big as the one I just paid for. They either checked for free or brought it on and managed to shove it in sideways taking up space that others needed. Some people brought three bags on!!! As a military spouse I feel cheated to have had to pay when others checked in for free at the gate. Not cool United, either let the spouse check in for free or make everyone abide by the so-called rules of one carry on that actually fits into that metal baggage guide. I would like a refund of 50.00 for the baggage fees I paid for this trip."
Pros: "Clean airplane. Great crew. Happy with the trip from takeoff to landing. Our landing was very rough due to strong winds on runway. At one point, plane was a little sideways. But with the great crew in control of the plane...Safe landing. Scary...but lived to tell."
Cons: "That you don't at least get one show that is free on flight. A cooking show is what was the choice, but no control over the volume. And I can't read lips. So that really sucked."
Cons: "Explanation on why it took so long to board was a vage"
Pros: "Airbus is the best commercial way to travel"
Pros: "This was the most smoothest overall trip I have ever had flying! I loved the new plane (from JAX) and the leg room since I'm 6'5 and it was very comfortable. Everyone involved in the process were very professional as well."
Cons: "Broken WiFi"
Pros: "Very friendly service"
Cons: "the stuffs were mean and helpless,your luggage fee was so high ,only give one checked bag for free,this is international airline and you charged the first for 100 dollars and the second one for 200dollars and you let me,a poor little girl felt lonely in the airport and found it nowhere to complain,I missed two flights in one day and the air attendant 's attitude were bad,this was the worst experience ever in my life,I won't recommend United airlines to any of my friends"
Pros: "nothing. I will never use kayak again"
Cons: "Kayak doesn't actually have anything to do with it my trip, it turns out. So when my flights got messed up, I couldn't call Kayak. And I couldn't call United or SAS because they said some third-rate travel agency actually bought me the ticket (after I "purchased" through Kayak. And so when I missed my SAS connection because of my delayed United connecting flight, nobody cared and nobody can assure me I'll ever get reimbursed. United said called SAS. SAS said call the travel agency... and on and on it went."
Pros: "The pilot and crew responded very well to the delay. Very friendly on the intercom, offered the small things like a full drink and tv access. Good response to a tough situation."
Cons: "Pilot mentioned we would be delayed so we could de-ice, understandable because it was freezing and had snowed all day. his original estimate on the delay was 30 minutes, it took over an hour at least."
Pros: "The flight was not fully booked so there were plenty of empty seats for everyone on to spread out."
Cons: "The flight was minorly delayed for de-iceing, but not more than maybe 30 mins or so. Not even worth saying what I didn't like about the flight when its necessary!"
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: "The flight was over one hour late departing ORD. We had approximately 15 minutes to make our connection at IAD. While I understand that the delay happened because the copilot was late because of a fender bender, I believe the delay could have been much shorter. Since they had telephone contact with the crew member we could have been boarded before he was on the plane and departed sooner. Also no reasonable explanation was given for the delay other than a crew member was not there."
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."
Cons: "Mild turbulence"
Cons: "From check in to boarding and then flight all were fantastic. We were traveling with 2 kids as well under 3"
Cons: "A little cramped and you should be more upfront about a dumb fee of $45 for a carry on. I thought I was getting a good deal on a flight but I guess I was wrong. I will probably fly with an airline that doesn’t charge you for something that should be free from now on"
Pros: "Service was fast and friendly and very efficient!!"
Pros: "Everything went smoothly for the most part. Any chance you will get on flight wifi soon?"
Cons: "Plane was dirty, flight delayed, lost my bag, awful."
Pros: "Despite DIA being closed the day before, we were only 35min late for departure, flight was without event and a timely arrival at DC. It may have been cheap, but you got what you paid for..."
Cons: "Bloody small seating, no refreshments."
Cons: "the crew was incredibly rude (to others and myself) the flight was delayed three hours and we weren't notified until we were supposed to board"
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: "It was fine--took off, polite crew, and landed safely. Can't complain about that."
Cons: "Our plane was delayed for over an hour. Picking up a bag from Frontier takes forever because you have to check what would otherwise be a carry-on. I wasn't aware of this as it was my first time flying with Frontier. Knowing that, I'd be able to schedule better. Don't love that they don't really give any refreshments or snacks."
Cons: "There was no mention of a delay while boarding but it took an extra 40 minutes to get started. There were storms in dc and our plane had to be redirected to a different airport. We were not given accurate information or updated with any frequency. We would be told more information is coming in 15 minutes, then sit for an hour and hear nothing. i could not update my driver that was at the original destination airport. While stuck on the plane at the new airport we were told we could not get off the plane or we would not be allowed back on and if we decided to get off and drive we could not get our checked bags. Snacks were not offered for hours and more than one flight attendant said they were out of everything and running out of water. When they finally offered food, full price was still the only option and they had everyone line up in the back of the plane, blocking both lavatories. Half way through the line we were told we could close the doors and prepare to take off and everyone remaining was sent back to their seat. We waited another half hour to actually take off."
Cons: "Flight was scheduled to depart at 9:20 PM on the 24th. On way to airport, I was advised of a 5 hour delay. At that point I returned home (1 hour 15 minutes from TPA airport) by which time the delay advice was increased to 7 hours. I called Frontier and they agreed to rebook me (at no charge) on a flight on Feb. 26th since all flights on the 25th were booked. I just checked and saw that Flt 291 actually departed TPA at 5:02 AM on the 25th. As always, it was stressful trying to talk to an agent having to listen through numerous recordings before I couold connect to ascertain times and make changes. I contacted Frontier at least 5 times and had language difficulties every time."
Cons: "They nickel and dime you to death. Leg room is horrible if your over 4 feet tall."
Pros: "I just plain like the Frontier method as it has been done for years. The pricing, seating, employees and most everything else just works."
Cons: "I've traveled with Frontier for years and on previous flights to DCA, I thought I should blame the baggage claim delay on the airport. Now I am told it is a Frontier responsibility and I am livid. It gets worse every trip. This time it took an hour to get our bags and it was clearly unnecessary. The first bags came out at about 30 minutes, but after that they dribbled out with no explanation whatsoever. Someone is a real laggard and they need to be fired! This experience was so bad that it takes precedence over our previous beefs. Boarding could be much better from back to front and the new seats are terrible, but like I said, if the baggage could be fixed, I would be willing to concede a few. At this point, I am ready to jump ship to Southwest."
Pros: "Early Arrival"
Cons: "Paying for a seat"
Cons: "Website is horrible. Impossible to navigate paying for bags. Seats on plane are uncomfortable and don't move."
Pros: "Good travel day!"
Cons: "I took the time to fill in my frequent traveler number. I did not receive TSA Precheck boarding passes like I should have."
Cons: "Comfort of flight and the cost involved with everything from bags to edible items on flight."
Pros: "tray tables, great sleep, cool goat, they let me on with 5 minutes to spare. no frills. wow!"
Cons: "not much"
Pros: "The gate crew was upbeat and kept everyone informed. They took a bad situation and made it bearable."
Cons: "Of course, being delayed an hour is not much fun, but other than that, everyone at Frontier did a great job."
Pros: "Awful flight...seats are uncomfortable...kids are annoying...flight was super loud...flight was super turbulent...will never fly frontier again :("
Cons: "problem printing boarding pass on Frontier web site, had problem with this web site before- very unfriendly and doesn't work"
Pros: "Perfect landing"
Cons: "I didn't have a pillow!"
Pros: "except for the food and what entertainment it was over all good"
Cons: "could not pay cash"
Cons: "they cancelled the fligh on me - over booked"
Cons: "Having to sit on the plane for four hours in the same position of the seat."
Pros: "Although I paid extra for my carry-on ($45; which I was aware of, but some people may not be) the flight attendants were friendly and professional. They were courteous upon stepping onto the plane and throughout the duration of the flight. The seats were comfortable, and overhead space was plentiful. My 2.5 hour flight from Tampa to PHL was shortened to 2 hours. Overall, it was a great experience flying Frontier for my very first time."
Cons: "They charged me 70 for bags.... Which is insane.... Without warning basically."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Arrived early. Crew pleasant. Hate the add on's but that is Frontier. New seats not comfortable"
Pros: "They chage me $30 for a standard carian( bag)"
Pros: "Plane was clean"
Cons: "Despite the fact that their ticket counter was open for other flight departures, they only allow you to check in beginning two hours before your scheduled takeoff time. This really means you have only an hour and a half until your flight begins to board. On the flight they mentioned wanting more people in the exit row, but you would have to pay an extra $50 because it has more leg room, needless to say everyone chuckled at this blatant ripoff attempt. On the flight you have two pay $2 for a small glass of water, not a bottle but a small plastic cup filled primarily with ice. When we landed we had to wait 45 minutes before the checked baggage began to arrive. Overall this is a very poor airline. Watch out for the fees as they charge you $20 for each airline interaction. I would suggest avoiding them if you can as the price rapidly rises above your ticket cost & the hassles for basic services are not worth the cost."
Pros: "The crew was extremely friendly and the initial cost of the flight was excellent however the only reason the initial flight cost was cheap is that everything is an add on ... Checked bags cost $35, carry-on bags cost $40! Everything but water costs extra on the plane, and you even have to pay $13 to choose your "normal" seat! I will not fly Frontier again because after I sum the additional costs I can fly a comparable airline with additional services that are free when compared to Frontier."
Cons: "Frontier not only raised their baggage rates, but they failed to load the luggage of at least seven passengers onto a one-way flight."
Pros: "The crew and boarding. Since I paid for a better seat, I was in front of the line."
Cons: "My seat didn't recline even though I paid an extre $50 for a better seat. Seating is very uncomfortable for me if I can't recline my seat slightly. Seats need to be more ergonomically designed for comfort. Also, not music or TV. The old planes use to give you these choices. The new planes suck!!!!!"
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: "Crew was nice and had a soft landing. You do get one free personal item wether it be a backpack or suitcase it's just supposed to fit under your seat and i put mine in overhead anyway so im sure it's fine as long as you get on the plane. so not sure what everyone else was rating. if you plan on extra baggage add it online it's much cheaper if you don't get it online add it at your check in kiosk BEFORE you go through security and it will save you 20 bucks."
Pros: "They should offer a tiered check-in scheme for baggage so it should be cheaper for those with small bags that are just checking it in for the convenience of others to not be cramped needlessly with baggage in their leg space."
Pros: "The price - but it won't create long term customers"
Cons: "The space, the aircraft felt cheap/unsafe which made turbulence more unsafe, the tray tables don't even fit a small lap top which is comical, the lack of food availability. Overall feels extremely cheap and unsafe in camparison to other aircrafts. Comparable to Spirit."
Pros: "Staff was friendly."
Cons: "Extra 20% cost of my fare just to bring a carry on bag. I already paid $450, this was highway robbery!!! Having to pay $20 to $50 extra just to select a seat. Plane layout now hows even more crowded seats that are thin plastic like you would get on a tour vehicle where you would only sit for 1 hour. Micro-sized fold out trays can't hold an ipad and coffee cup. Plane left 45 minutes late for no reason. No TS-Pre check. I could go on. I will never fly this airline again."
Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "Although the flight was good I was shocked that I had to pay an additional fee for my seat upon check-in via the internet. I had to pay $17 extra on the way to Florida and $11 extra per seat on the return flight to Chicago. Why wasn't I made aware of this? Also, I went on Frontiers website prior to my trip to see what the carry-on fees were. They never explained the fees until after I was trying to print out my boarding pass and I was charged $40 per carry-on (3 of us were travelling). Give a head's up about your fees!!!!!! Otherwise, your prices are misleading!"
Pros: "It left on time"
Cons: "Pay for snack and drink"
Pros: "Discounted fare"
Cons: "Nickel & dime for everything Called others up in the checkin line, who were late for their flight before us, causing us to be late and miss flight. Do yourself a favor. Pay a little more, and get a better flight."
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?"
Cons: "The seats are horrible! It ruins the entire flight! Uuugh."
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)."
