Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Don't have expired foodstuffs"
Cons: "See above Bruh lmao"
Pros: "The price was great, and it seemed like a fun idea to ride in a "private" plane."
Cons: "We had no security check on our first leg and only went through security for our second leg on the same plane. Huh? Also there was no communication from the airline about checking in or about the fact that the airline isn't in a main DFW terminal. Finally, both flights-- coming and going-- were hours late and caused significant scheduling problems."
Pros: "The actual fight was very good."
Cons: "I tried calling for a shuttle to the terminal for over an hour, and ended up walking in the dark with my luggage. When arriving, the attendant said he had left the phone in the car. That was not so great."
Pros: "For instance I had left my lap top in airport terminal and we were ready to start to move away from gate I had told pilots and they asked permission from the higer ups and was givin permission to shut it down and co pilot ran back to gate and picked up my lap top it would have been a totally messed up my business trip when he picked it up and put it in my hands I was so impressed I will never ever use another airline on this trip to vernal Utah ever again if they ever have any other companies on this same route even if they were more expensive I would still utilize there services because of the professional service and care it's a no brainer for me and my company to use them and the airline routes above and beyond the call of there duty I was impressed as well as the other passengers in this flight Denver to vernal Utah exalent flight and very little turbulence on time and carrying people p pilots and ground crew both airports I appreciate good old fashioned service and careing other then a ticket I was a real person to them all I give them all a perfect 10 OUT OF 10 THANK YOU FOR BEING REAL I FLY ALOT FOR MY BUSINESS ANF THERE THE BEST AT WHAT THEY DO WISH HAD MORE OF THIS KIND OF REAL BUINSSINESS LIKE THIS I CAN NOT GIVE THEM ENOUGH GOOD THINGS TO SAY ABOUT THEM TO MY FELLOW CO WORKERS AND OTHER PEOPLE AND BUSINESSES TO RECOMMEND THEM FOR THERE GREAT SERVICE AND ATTENTION TO THE CUSTOMER THANK YOU AGAIN I APPRECIATE A GOOD IDEA AND ATTENTION TO BE THE BEST YOU CAN BE SINCERELY LOUIS STEVENS .... AGAIN THANK YOU FOR BEING REAL...."
Cons: "Nothing they did it all rite great job guys good hires !!!!"
Cons: "Was I in a bad re-run from Wings? Spent 10-hours in DIA courtesy of Boutique suddenly not having a 'plane'. Later in day the line was, "waiting on pilots", while said pilots had lunch in plane. Joke, horrible, horrible."
Cons: "My flight was canceled twice and delayed once so much that I could not make my connection. I ended up having to rent a car rather than fly with Boutique. They will supposedly be reimbursing me for that but I have not received it yet. They would not reimburse me for the money I had to pay to change my connecting flights. I ended up missing two full days of work."
Pros: "It was like flying on a private/ corporate plane . Will def go again"
Pros: "Best discovery on the west coast! Great personnel, spacious for a small plane, great views. So happy to have tried Boutique!"
Cons: "If flying to LAX be prepared to have plenty of time to make connection. I had to get my carry on bag through baggage claim which added unexpected wait."
Pros: "Quick cheap flight"
Cons: "Seats were a bit old."
Pros: "What did I like? Everything! Service, price, flight conditions, crew were all wonderful. It felt like taking a private jet and was less expensive for my husband and I to fly round trip than to rent a car to drive from Denver to Durango for a week!"
Pros: "Not many people, even though boutique is more expensive I will use yall every time."
Pros: "Did not like it at all"
Cons: "Having to wait to another airport. I checked in. I was so hungry couldn't get anything to eat cause we had to go to another airport. So we had to check in and then set back down there was not any food anywhere. I will not be using this airline again"
Cons: "It's one of the smallest airports I've been to, but has the worst TSA agents. They're bored. I have to take my top off to go through the metal detector. Took 45 minutes of harrasment to get 8 people through.... eight."
Pros: "The ease of everything. I love aviation too, so flying a small plane that you can watch everything was fun. We did have a long delay for a maintenance problem, but that happens with anyone at anytime. No. Middle. Seats. For being a small plane, they are great planes. Fast and smooth for its size."
Cons: "The space between seat rows is pretty small... it didn't affect me, for I am a small man, but would be pretty tight for a larger person."
Pros: "Given the cost and the late date on which I booked, the flights were good. The plane was a bit small however, I knew that was the case when I booked. Boarding and Flight staff were good humored and professional. Of note, they took great care of an elderly passenger prior to and during the flight from Albuquerque to Alamosa. Very impressed with the customer service. Great ground crew at Albuquerque and great flight crew! In summary, I would definitely fly Boutique Airlines again."
Cons: "This has nothing to do with Boutique however, the Alamos Airport could definitely use some additional vending machines. I realize that the airport is very small however, absent any restaurants, some additional machines would be wonderful."
Pros: "Great service, comfy flight, extremely smooth despite the small plane. Best flight experience I've had in a long time!"
Pros: "Comfortable ride with little delay. Good pilots"
Pros: "everything is great"
Pros: "Customer service landing and take off. Everything really smooth. Cheap and best. Felt like my private plane"
Pros: "My good experience started since I checked in. The lady at the counter was very nice and helpful. The flight was very comfortable and the crew were also nice. I really liked the seats. I am going to recommend this flight to everyone I know!!"
Pros: "Friendly crew and staff. Easy check-in and boarding processes. Thanks so much!"
Cons: "Heard from other passengers it happened all the time. Flights cancelled due to mechanical problems."
Pros: "The staff were pleasant to work with."
Cons: "Flight was scheduled to depart at 4:30pm and without any weather or mechanical delays the flight is pushed to 6:30pm. Then 7:00pm. Now 8:00pm. And I am still waiting."
Pros: "The staff was very friendly and professional from the checking point to the final destination . It is a private jet experience for a bargain. It is a great experience."
Pros: "Loved seats that really recline and table to work on"
Cons: "Had to wait in Greenville for extra 30 mins because needed police officer. Lol there were more Tsa and security than passengers out of Greenville. Pleasant"
Cons: "It has been seriously delayed and I have not taking that flight yet ."
Pros: "Love Boutique air."
Pros: "Cost and schedule compliance"
Cons: "All was good. You need to have an "na" in your star ratings. "Entertainment " is not appropriate for a flight."
Cons: "Original flight to Denver was cancelled due to hurricane. Boutique would not refund my flight, as the hurricane did not affect their flights."
Pros: "The price for this flight considering the convenience of everything compared to a typical commercial flight was amazing. I am very impressed with the service, and will absolutely try to find future flights on Boutique Air!"
Pros: "Everything was excellent!"
Pros: "This was unique experience on an eight seated plane. Loved the service and absolutely will do it again!!"
Pros: "The thought of a private plane"
Cons: "How dirty, uncomfortable and cold the plane itself was. The flippant attitude towards safety information was also surprising"
Pros: "The thought of a smaller private plane"
Cons: "How dirty, uncomfortable and cold the plane itself was. The flippant attitude towards safety information was also surprising. There were a couple of people on the plane that didn't know what to expect, in regards to noise and turbulence, with such a small aircraft. Sharing that information in advance would have calmed the nerves of many on this flight. Also the last minute notice of having to check your bags, though the website states differently, and the amount of time spent on the tarmac just waiting, made me 30mins late for my business in LA."
Pros: "On time, easy check in, and friendly staff"
Pros: "Liked the hospitality of the crew"
Cons: "The noise of the plane"
Pros: "The flight was smooth and comfortable. It was nice not having to deal with the major airports."
Pros: "What a fantastic surprise. Best flight ever and no hassle. Service is second to none!!! Husband loved it even more than I. Full size drinks and nuts, smooth flight all the way through, We will do this again and again. Thank you!"
Cons: "No downside at all"
Pros: "A different flying experience"
Cons: "There were 5 passengers on the flight, 2 checked in a bag for a total of 2 bags. My bag was lost. In reality on flight 438 Boutique Air lost/misplaced 50% of the passengers luggage. The staff is trying to get my bag on the next Boutique Air flight which does not arrive in Nashville until Sunday. I may be moved from Nashville on Sunday. The baggage needs to be on the next flight heading to Nashville regardless of the company."
Cons: "I'll admit, I was arrived some what close to the cut-off time but still had around 50 minutes to spare before boarding my flight. Staff was unable to provide me a printed version of my boarding pass. In result, I was not able to make my flight. Boutique air refuses to address the matter."
Pros: "Easy on and Easy off, great customer service at checkin in LAX"
Cons: "NO TSA PRE? Cmon...that is a must these days. Flight left LAX almost 45mins late because we were waiting for one passenger to arrive. I'm all for waiting 10 mins or so for someone who has already checked in but to inconvenience the entire plane for one person that long was too much. Pilot who spoke to us upon leaving and when we landed in Merced was devoid of customer service skills and spoke in a way that was hard to understand."
Pros: "It was a quick stop to refuel, and we were immediately brought back into the plane afterward."
Cons: "That we had to go back through TSA screening even though there were only six of us - but that's the TSA and not the airplane's fault."
Pros: "I have flown between SLC and Denver perhaps 600 times over the last 20 years. This was perhaps the first time ever that I enjoyed the flight."
Pros: "Expectations were exceeded and beyond. Very professional and everyone made me feel important. Impressed from booking to landing."
Cons: "I do not have a complaint."
Pros: "Great experience. Great service."
Cons: "No issues here."
Pros: "Care, service, concern"
Cons: "Everything was good Stormy, rough air and a safe flight"
Pros: "I loved the intimate feel of flying this airline. Meeting the captain on the Tarmac and getting personalized care like coffee, water, and descriptions of what we are flying over and around was awesome. With such a chill environment and the ability to shoot great photos out of the plane window I really felt like I was flying in my own private jet."
Cons: "Nothing. Nothing at all. We even landed early."
