They were on time. Staff was professional and pleasant. Allowed me to have a carry on and select my seat. Very reasonable cost. Easy online check on and sms reminders. Will fly with them again.
Pros: "Service and overall cleanliness etc. was very smooth, good and clean. I sat in seat 1A both ways and as the first person to get on and off the flight found the process well laid out, easy, clean and smooth. I also got to witness the boarding process from inside while seated. Very professional and courteous all the way. The first class cabin was sparsely filled with ample space between us and based on how many people I saw getting on, I think the rear cabin must've been sparsely filled as well. More on the comfort aspect in the "what would have been bettter section" ... in short, the seats are the weakest link in the chain."
Cons: "My only gripe is about the seats fitted in first class for this Alaska Air leg (JFKSFO). Like most, my travel frequency has dropped so much that I can finally afford to pay full fare first for the few times I do need to travel. I expect that this will more likely be the norm than not and hope/expect that more among us who can afford to pay extra for the additional comfort, do so. The airline industry will need to keep that segment to get ahead of this seismic shift in travel patterns that 2020 has brought upon all of us. I was hoping to just sleep through it. I normally sleep well/easily on flights (at times, "too well"!) but could not do so on this leg. The seats in first class are just not meant for sleeping and are thus limited in their positioning ... brief napping is the best you can do - carry your entertainment/work or plan on meditating while fully awake. The base is for all intent and purposes, immovable (maybe a couple of inches back and forth at best). There is no concept of a foot rest in the design. The back locks into one of two positions - a vertical one for take-off/landing and a second one tilted about 15 degrees or so. That makes it impossible to stretch the body out while fully supported - so hard to go into relaxed/deep sleep for those who wish to do so. The front passenger seat of a common car offers more for a five hour road trip - something to ponder on, eh? Upgrade the seats ...the extra investment will pay for itself quickly in this age of reduced travel as you'll attract more of those who are lucky to be able to pay a little more to fly in comfort for the few times that they need to. Additionally, sleeping passengers are often the easiest/cheapest to service!"
Pros: "The crew was good. The problem was our Qantas flight from Auckland New Zealand, to Sydney, Australia, to San Francisco, to Seattle didn't sync with Alaska Air. We arrived in San Francisco after a very long flight. We had gotten our boarding passes in Auckland. When we went to board in SF, there was a glitch and they wouldn't let us board. It took a long time to get that fixed. We missed our flight (with our luggage on it), and had to wait several more hours. Plus Alaska Air had cancelled a flight mid morning and the trickle down result was many people were stuck and waiting on flights. Then we had to wait for a crew to come, then they found something wrong with the plane so had to get in a new plane. It was a long and hard day for everyone."
Cons: "I don't know how you sync airline tickets but if they had synced as they were supposed to, none of this would have happened."
Pros: "Seat was ok"
Cons: "Had to take a bus to the plane at SFO. Wouldn’t have taken this flight if I had known, but they don’t tell you this at booking. Also, was told carry on back wouldn’t fit in overhead and that I had to check it, which isn’t true as I saw other passengers with my exact same bag who didn’t have to check theirs and it fit."
Pros: "The Alaska Airlines check in was not simple via a kiosk and had to go see an attendant. She did not add Pre-check to our 4 tickets and we missed not seeing it on the ticket. Had to wait in the regular line. So long the waot."
Cons: "Alaska Airline attendant should ask as a protocol and lesson learned to tell them to have it added."
Pros: "The crew were very professional and friendly. The comfort of the seating was great as well."
Pros: "The crew was great, the plane was clean and updated, the in-flight entertainment was good."
Cons: "On both of my Alaska Airlines flights we took off later than scheduled, by over 15 minutes. It could have been due to the congestion at LAX. And the seats were comfortable if not a little cramped. I also wish we would have been offered adult beverages on my late flight into SFO -- helps for sleep."
Cons: "Silk air seats are not comfortable"
Pros: "The movie that I watched"
Cons: "The flight attendants was horrible they did not have the food and wine and order a drink and they were not pleasant at all"
Pros: "Seats ok."
Cons: "Headrest on the seats will be appreciated"
Cons: "Luggage space issue could have been handled prior to flight not on a volunteer basis."
Pros: "I'm an aviation enthusiast. It was the plane I liked..."
Cons: "Nothing that Alaska Air could have fixed."
Pros: "Window seat"
Cons: "45 minute delay for a 55 minute flight. Absurd. Slow boarding."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and fun. Seats were roomy with plenty of leg room."
Cons: "No soap in bathroom stall. Told crew who tried to correct it but it was broken. Boo..."
Pros: "The flight was on time departing and arriving, the plane was clean, the legroom was good, the flight attendants were friendly and attentive."
Cons: "The bus trip from terminal to plane was long."
Cons: "Alaska has utterly ruined Virgin’s first class experience, and the food is garbage."
Pros: "The spacious seats. Great customer service. Fast and smooth site."
Cons: "For some reason when I booked the flight for my boyfriend and I we were seated apart from each other in a different row."
Pros: "Staff were friendly, flight timings were punctual."
Cons: "Seats are hard and less comfy. Alaskan airlines can afford much better seats."
Pros: "The movie selection was good and the seats were alright."
Cons: "I got stuck on a tarmac and have been here for over twenty minutes. The crew hasn’t said a word since we landed."
Pros: "I like the idea of allowing pre-boating for families with small children or elderly parents to some extent"
Cons: "I did not like that the airline allowed more than 1-2 people to accompany 1 small child when pre-boarding. I happened to be able to go in with the general boarding but was one of those who was first in line within this group. My seat which was 5C already had no overheard room!!! It appears that 1 child was accompanied by 4 adults when they pre-boarded and in addition to their carry-ons, they put their foldable stroller, backpacks and totes in the overhead bin!! The airline announced a request for people to leave the overhead bin spaces for bigger carryons but does not enforce it. Flight attendants should not feel uncomfortable actually asking to whom the backpack or tote belong to and tell passengers to put those under their seats. Somehow, passengers need to be educated on proper etiquette. Also, pre-boarding should only allow 1-2 people to accompany a child or an elderly person. Pre-boarding should not be taken advantage of by all adults traveling with those needing it."
Cons: "I don't normally leave reviews, but words really can't describe the nightmarishness of what should have been a quick four hour flight from San Francisco to Washington. Seats for my wife and I were not where I had reserved. Plane had one working lavatory for a cabin of 150 economy passengers. This resulted in a line that stretched the entirety of the single aisle of the plane for the majority of the flight. The second toilet simply had a piece of paper with sharpie that read "DO NOT USE!!" There were two attendants, one of whom wore a t-shirt and was mostly indistinguishable from the passengers. Didn't get so much as a cup of water until over two hours into the four hour flight. No snack, but that's the least of my complaints really. The attendants spent most of the flight in the back of the plane discussing their new vacation lottery and where they were going to go out drinking when we landed–I know because the rear of the plane was where I ended up, forced to smell the single working toilet, in a seat that didn't recline."
Pros: "Crews were helpful. Flights were on time. Snacks were good."
Cons: "The screen says to Portland but it was actually for a Los Angeles flight. I almost boarded in the wrong flight."
Pros: "Overall good check in"
Pros: "The attendance were not very friendly"
Cons: "I asked if they had headphones so I can watch a movie and they didn’t and she was not helpful at all"
Pros: "I like everything about it the people were very nice very kind friend can't say nothing bad about the crew"
Cons: "There was nothing I did not like"
Cons: "In the SF airport, your crew accepted me to pay for $25 for putting my suitcase into the plane. But then, she mentioned that the flight was delayed and there was no way that I can made my connection from LA to Indianaplis. So I was given a boarding pass with my suitcase ($25 paid) only to LA. The front desk asked me to try other ways when I arrived LA to see what can be done. When I entered into the gate, your CS changed my flight to UA after I have presented my case. However, I had to pull the suitcase out from Alaska, paid another $25 to United and started the trip all over again. All the while, your crews expected me (an alien from Asia) that I should have known every thing get it through, or to claim my suitcase charges. I am really disappointed for the lack of understanding. To you, it may be something happened so common everyday. To me, I was totally lost to handle this."
Pros: "Everyone is so nice. Easy & reasonable price."
Cons: "It was a hour late taking off so that’s always a pain but other wise it was okay."
Pros: "I appreciate that they’re trying to keep the Virgin spirit and quality alive."
Cons: "There wasn’t anything I didn’t like."
Pros: "free drinks"
Cons: "Slow and disorderly boarding at SFO"
Cons: "I sure liked the available media content to watch during the trip"
Pros: "The flight and the attendants were super. The amenities are a nice addition, but only if they work."
Cons: "The earphone jack in my seat was not working. I had to poke some napkin in the jack in order to make the plug work correctly. But even then, if there was much movement by me in my seat, the audio would cut out."
Pros: "Missed floght"
Cons: "Alaska overbooking to 107% (TSA’s explanation) at security checkpoint D at SFO FROM 10-1am caused many missed flights and many disgruntled passengers due to TSA agents being incredibly in hospitable."
Pros: "That the problem was eventually fixed."
Cons: "I arrived at the SFO at 715. I checked in and went straight to my gate. After sitting in the gate area just a few minutes, the women at my flight desk announced a delayed flight(flight would depart at 10 instead of 855) The asked that passengers come retrieve their meal vouchers. She checked my boarding pass and I went and ordered myself dinner and returned to sit down close to 9pm. I waited for the screen to change for the new flight information but it never did. The terminal was busy with music and basketball finals.lost of mumbling announcemrnt so I kept checking my flight screen and it still had the original flight. I sat waiting. All of a suddent the tv changes and it’s a different destination??? I got up and asked why my flight wasn’t posted and she told me ‘sweetheart your flight left 20minutes ago.’ I was shocked. How could this happen? She informed me i’d missed my flight that was never delayed. I was so tired and worried and she kept calling me sweetheart. Telling me there were mo more flights but that she’d put me on a 6am the next morning. With my disability I was so worried I pushed and pushed and spoke to both counter airling people. Finally, I got mad and she put me on united. I am so upset about the whole ordeal. That was a surreal awful experience that had me crying on the way home."
Pros: "Seat was comfortable"
Cons: "Entertainment system down"
Pros: "Love Virgin-Alaska... roomy seats, attentive staff and good entertainment. Won’t fly on anyone else."
Cons: "Not much. Though first class looked nice."
Pros: "The crew were great, security at the airport took over an hour to get through so I arrived at the gate 10minsbefire takeoff. The crew were great in getting me on board and checking my luggage was still there t"
Pros: "Like having movies to watch."
Pros: "Plane was a little warm, air didn’t work great, also delayed on the runway for about 45 minutes before takeoff"
Cons: "They delay on the runway"
Pros: "Terminal 2 in SF is great...whole vibe plus food and seating options are top top...SeaTac needs to up their game feels makes it feels like a food court at a subpar mall."
Cons: "Wish there was in seat inflight entertainment like Virgin America."
Pros: "The attendant who helped me was extremely helpful in arranging for me to be on the next flight to Portland, out of San Jose. She called and arranged for a shuttle to pick me up in San Francisco and bring me to San Jose at no cost, and provided me with a flex ticket so that if I missed the next flight I could be on the subsequent one. (I did in fact make it -- just barely -- onto the 11:15 flight out of San Jose, so when all was said and done I landed in Portland about three hours later than originally planned. As it was a very short trip, I'm quite glad that I only lost the time that I did.) Thank you, Diane (Diana?), for all your help."
Cons: "I had originally been scheduled for an 8:45 am flight out of San Francisco. As I was leaving for the airport at 6:30 I received a text saying that my flight had been delayed until 10:08. I ended up arriving at the airport around 9:00 and making it over to the service desk around 9:20, at which point I was told by one of the attendants that the flight had left at 9:18 and I should have been at the airport two hours early. There was no acknowledgment by this particular attendant that I had been given wrong information by the airline that had resulted in my missing the flight."
Cons: "Condescending and rude"
Pros: "it made it on time.... we travel / fly a lot. First time with Alaskan an was far from impressed"
Cons: "All out of food... morning flight an no warning or anything g. We could have ran an got something before boarding started .... they drive the cart by with what I guess... the only 2 options of each category for the first 10 people... to then say... o sorry we have nothing.. An no compensation for it but sorry.... do u a humus pack for 8 bucks.... then one second later when my wife decides she wants it... they say they just gave away the last one... it was redic. Not to mention weren't even all the way in the back Glad to see a few people up front able to eat..."
Cons: "Airport was switched from SFO to OAK and I was given 4 hours notice. Ridiculous"
Pros: "Missed my flight at it was rescheduled for $25 without asking a questions"
Pros: "The in flight cookies were deliscious"
Cons: "I arrived to my gate about a half hour before boarding was set to start. An employee greeting me recommended I use the restroom because the gate was down an elevator and in a portion of the airport that did not have accessible restrooms or food options. She cautioned against returning late later than ten minutes before boarding. I returned about ten minutes before the scheduled boarding, only to be told there would be a delay, which wouldn't be an issue except that it took over an hour and sounded like a standard, foreseeable safety process due to the plane being out of the country prior to our flight. Then we were shuttled to the plane on a frigid bus, which at one point stopped so suddenly several passengers and baggages were sent to the floor. And then, after finally taking off, the in flight wifi did not work. After landing in Portland, there was a 45 minute delay because "a vehicle is parked in our gate." Ultimately, we flew safe and sound, but the discomfort caused by the cold bus transports, poor bus driving, foreseeable delays, and a parked vehicle was really unacceptable. After this experience, it will be hard to choose Alaska Airlines in the future."
Pros: "The flight crew was good, and the flight was quick once we got on the plane - which was 1 hour 45 minutes after we should have!"
Cons: "I got on the second leg of a flight from Seattle to Palm Springs at San Francisco. First, the flight arrived an hour late. Passengers from Seattle said that the loading crew somehow dented the wall to the luggage area (?) and they had to inspect it before flying. When it finally got to SFO, we boarded the plane at first, and then had to deplane back into the airport because they had (over?)filled the wrong fuel tank. So they had to empty that tank and fill another I guess? Don't know if the tank they filled was on the other side of the dented luggage area. The announcements from the desk were puzzling, and tended to be every 10 minutes telling us to wait 10 minutes instead of giving a good estimate so we didn't need to stand at the gate the whole time. After about 50 more minutes we boarded again and the plane took off OK. But there needs to be serious improvement in communication between the crew on the ground (gas & luggage etc) and the pilot and the desk crew, and between all of them and their paying customers."
Pros: "Medical emergency on board, crew kept calm. Luckily there was a doctor on the flight, he and the crew attended to the passenger. Reassuring to see such a professional team."
Pros: "Service was excellent as always. I was cold and reluctant to say anything. Seemed like lots were asking for hot drinks and bundled up so the stewardess asked the pilot to crank up the heat. (No one had requested this!) At that moment I realized, many of us are afraid due to recent things on the news. I am a frequent and long-term traveller so if I felt it, you can be sure others do too. It is an industry problem, not your fault, but Alaska has to address it. Even if people don't know that they are angry or afraid, they are going to be reactive--aggressive or passive and/or resistant.... I would encourage you to bring the issue to the surface and remind your travellers on every flight that they can expect excellent service, pleasant responsiveness. Say something or do something that gets at the idea that the Alaska staff is protective of each passenger. One idea would be to have the stewardess remind people of the call light and encourage passengers to use it if they have any questions or concerns, or come see them in the back when it is safe to leave the seat."
Old plane. Zero leg room. Dour staff. Turn lighting on repeatedly on redeye - spend half the time making useless announcements. Impossible to sleep even if you were in 1st class.
I had to cancel my trip because of COVID delta. My brother who I visiting got scared and didn’t want me to visit. I paid for insurance that you provided through your site. Allianz hidden in terms that canceling because of COVID fear isn’t covered. I was never offered insurance through delta on your site witch I would have bought. Delta isn’t even giving me a credit for a flight and keep my money. What a scam and I’m very disappointed in the services I received.
Boarding was on time (if not a little early). The flight was unfortunately not properly catered for snack boxes in main cabin. This is likely a one off instance, but it’s a long flight for no food options other than pretzels and Biscoffs. Service was attentive and friendly. This particular flight offered Delta’s DeltaOne lay flat first class seats. Would highly recommend. Flight left on time and arrived early!
It would have been nice to be served some water
The 2 hour delayed and the seats were very uncomfortable for economy
Pros: "Amazing crew!"
Pros: "Crew, atmosphere, timeliness. I was satisfied overall"
Cons: "Gate number changed couple times before flight departure"
Pros: "These Comfort+ seats had the most legroom of any airline (Delta, JetBlue, American etc) short of Business class that I can remember in my adult life!"
Pros: "Seat was great, complimentary snacks and alcoholic beverage"
Cons: "I came from a long trip from France, the seat I was assigned was not reclinable, close to the restroom. I was totally exhausted from the previous flight, not able to sleep at all and when I tried to stretch my legs by sitting sidewards on the aisle a crew member keep bothering me to keep my legs out"
Cons: "Give food to passengers"
Cons: "After a delay of about an hour on a very full flight the gate agent asked for volunteers to check their rollaboard suitcases. The gate agents then allowed those who checked their rollaboards to board before Zone 1,which was fine. However, a bunch of people without gate check stickers on the rollaboards were also allowed to board before Zone 1, which was aggravating. There was a long delay on the tarmac, during which we had to pull back to the gate or to a maintenance area before we finally took off. When we arrived in Vegas there was no gate for us to pull into, which led to another long delay of an already long and delayed flight."
Pros: "Good entertainment selection and great crew"
Cons: "Seats are more uncomfortable relative to other airlines"
Pros: "Boarded and left JFK on time and arrived 15 minutes early to Seattle. Love DELTA."
Pros: "very nice and willing stewardesses"
Cons: "tragic little place for legs, lack of space"
Cons: "My daughter was booked on this itinerary and was finishing her last leg of journey. Complete ticket was booked thru Delta Airlines. Her flight from Amsterdam to New York today operated by KLM, was delayed by few minutes. And Delta flight from JFK to Cleveland DL4084 was preponed by airlines. Result was my daughter was not allowed to board the aircraft. Worst was yet to come. Your staff at the gate offered her a flight to Cleveland for next day at 3:30 pm??? Means around 24 hours later. Is this how you behave with a girl of 19 years, asking her to stay at the airport. She was refused Hotel and Lounge stay by your team!!! Is this what you call customer services??? Obscene services is what I would like to term it as!!! My daughter asked them to give this is writing, which was refused to her. Why are your people scared to put it in writing if everything that you are doing is right by the Law??? I was left with no other option but to book her on American Airlines flight today departing at 9 pm to ensure that little girl doesn’t have to spend close to 24 hours at airport by paying $423. Who is going to bear the loss of money and mental torture that your team has given to me and my daughter???? I shall be awaiting your response as to what do you have to say to this pathetic attitude of your team. Rajesh Mendiratta Sent from my iPhone Rajesh"
Pros: "The flight for getting us therw"
Cons: "No food and no entertainment"
Pros: "I paid 60 bucks for an emergency row exit, take get some extra leg room and space so that I would be fresh when I arrived in Munich. However KLM allowed a passenger — who did not pay for the emergency row to sit next to me because he needed the extra space because he was a liarge man, and clearly didn’t fit very well in the economy seats. Thus I I lost all the extra space and actually would of preferred a regular economy seat. that would’ve been more preferential then paying $60 and getting less space than I would’ve had it in a regular economy. I understand the other passengers comfort was important and if that was the case he should’ve paid $60 as well."
Cons: "I did not get a choice of seat for the one and a half hour flight from Amsterdam to Munich and I sat in a middle row for the first time in 20 years."
Cons: "It was not acceptable and very disappointed that flight DL391 from SDQ to NY-JFK was delayed till it left at 4:40pm because there were no crew members to bring the aircraft to STO DGO the night before as it is usually done so that the aircraft sleeps over in las Americas. We were at the airport at 4:30am because the flight was scheduled to depart at 6:05am we were lucky to be able to rebook for a flight SDQ-ATL DL576 for the same day hoping to make the connection ATL-IND. Unfotunately that flight was rerouted to Charlotte due to bad weather conditions with a delay of 3 hrs before it landed in ATL thus missing our connection to INDI and had to sleep in ATL and leave the next day to IND thus missing a meeting commitment that we had in IND. We should and expect to be compensated by Delta for this."
Pros: "The seats had plenty of leg room and the crew was was very kind."
Cons: "My seat was uncomfortable and I was seated in the only row of the aircraft without entertainment for a four hour flight. Then on top of that the passenger next to me removed his shoes and you could smell his feet from a mile away but the flight attendants never requested for him to replace his shoes."
Pros: "The flight crew was friendly and personable. Beverage service was consistent and efficient. Entertainment and free WiFi messaging were great perks."
Cons: "The positives don’t even come close to offsetting the misery of Delta’s seats. I honestly don’t remember the last time I was so cramped and uncomfortable. I’m not an abnormally large man - 6 feet 200 lbs - and there was no room for my legs or my shoulders in an “upgraded economy” seat. I fly weekly for work on another major airline, and only took this one in a crunch. But I am quite certain this was my last Delta flight and I’ll be advising others similarly. The service and entertainment aren’t sufficient to mask an awful seat configuration."
Pros: "Very comfortable and didn't feel cramped. Quick flight."
Cons: "No choice in snack and I couldn't eat what I was given. Staff appeared checked out and not bothered. No entertainment but it was a quick flight."
Pros: "Giid free sandwixh. Very good entertainment system. Good seats."
Pros: "After being redirected and behind on travel plans due to weather and missed flights this was a welcomed relief. Everything went as planned and staff was very helpful."
Pros: "Food and movies were good."
Cons: "Didn't leave on time."
Cons: "Price to get a little more space"
Pros: "Service was outstanding"
Cons: "TV froze and was never fixed."
Cons: "Force me to take a bad seat"
Pros: "The flight was uneventful and although we took off late, we arrived on-time."
Cons: "The rows of seats are so tight that when the big guy in the seat in front of me leaned back (not even putting his seat back) his seat banged into my knees. A combination of cheap seats and too many seats. Made for a very uncomfortable flight."
Cons: "I was sitting in the last row and the bathroom smell was hard to deal with."
Pros: "I didn't like much about this flight."
Cons: "Flight left late. When we landed the sky bridge was broken so we had to walk outside, which isn't a big deal but it took a while sitting on the runway for the stairs to come. Then we proceeded to baggage claim and waited a few minutes and one of our 2 bags was there. The crew member then said "that's everything. If you're missing bags come see us." Well about 5 people on a small flight had to see them. My bag was stuck in JFK. I was told id have to come back to the airport tomorrow. At this point id been traveling for close to 24 hours. Im not a happy camper. I usually fly JetBlue and this has never happened with them. Delta acted like its a normal thing with them. I paid 25 dollars to check each bag. How can both my bags not reach their final destination together and how come this seems like a normal procedure for Delta. I paid you for a service and now I have to drive back to the airport or wait for you at home to deliver my bags whenever Delta feels like it. I probably won't fly Delta again unless I absolutely have to."
Pros: "We'd paid extra for main cabin so hot to choose seats and got in flight entertainment.. Staff were friendly."
Cons: "No free wifi."
Pros: "So many movies to watch. Keep it up!"
Cons: "The food was too sweet and salty."
Pros: "Boarding was very organized and quick. Slight delay taking off but not bad for JFK. Lovely crew. Bumpy flight but the captain kept us informed. Food better than expected. Flight arrived early but no gate so we had to wait."
Cons: "OMG! The seats are obnoxiously close together. I could only sit perfectly upright and even then my knees were pressed tightly against the seat in front of me. I am only 5'7". Impossible to rest due to lack of space. I tried to put my head down on my tray table but couldn't since it hit the seat in front of me. Mid flight my 13 year old daughter got back spasms. Upon arrival we could barely walk and looked like two old women limping down the jetway. No idea how a tall or larger person could have even sat down."
Cons: "No communication between different parts of the airport; early arrival, over 2 hours getting through baggage claim; good luck rechecking your bag; almost missed flight with a 2 1/2 hour layover. Workers on the ground don't care, or either don't know what's next on the transit through the airport."
Pros: "Some of the ground staff was trying to be helpful."
Cons: "That we had to sleep like homeless people on the floor of JFK airport as the airline was not able to provide for a crew and therefore cancelled the flight. The airline cancelled the flight at 1.30 in the morning so no one was able to get a stay in a hotel not did the airline take any action towards helping the stranded passengers. We were given blankets and pillows. The best thing was the ground staff getting rude after all passengers complaining. They were basically saying we should get stuffed since we were booked for a flight next day same day. This is shameful! Needless to say that I will not fly this airline again!"
Pros: "That I made it to Dublin"
Cons: "The flight was delayed due to aircraft issues making us 2 hours late for vacation. THIS IS MY HARD EARNED MONEY! I literally put blood, sweat and many many tears into this trip. The flight attendant was so rude on this trip. It was like she was absolutely offended by my presence. I barely even spoke to her except to make sure of my vegetarian tray to which I got the nasty reply "You'll have to wait because I don't have it with me now". If I wasn't so focused on sleeping as much as I could I would have written her name down. No complimentary cocktails for Preferred Seating? Seriously? What did I upgrade for exactly? Literally four inches of space? Late, rude, money sucking industry who holds no accountability for wrong doings. Don't get into the Health Industry.. you'll kill people with this flippant attitude. Bleh.. I doubt I'll fly with Delta again. The thought of having to do so turns my stomach."
Pros: "I got a seat in the exit row with lots of leg room. The entertainment that I didn't use offered a great selection with very recent movies, etc."
Cons: "I didn't like that I had to take a bus to my terminal. I didn't like the fact that my gate was changed more than five times. I didn't like that my flight time was changed more than 15 times with no reason why until boarding time. I didn't like the fact that I did not get a seat assignment until boarding the plane. I didn't like the fact that they couldn't manage to scramble another plane and crew, but instead forced us to wait over four hours for one that was stuck somewhere else in the country."
Pros: "On my ticket it clearly indicate that I am entitled to 2 check in baggage. Delta completely refused to honor this. They said am only entitled 1 piece, and therefore I have to pay for the other luggage. I was forced to borough money from someone at the airport just so that I could board the flight."
Cons: "I am asking that my money be refunded. And next time delta should honor and respect agreements. And be more professional"
Cons: "Almost everything"
Cons: "The WORST experience of my life. My flight was delayed 12 hours overnight due to "weather" and since it was reportedly because of uncontrollable weather delta didn't have to do anything for me so I slept in the JFK airport overnight, they wouldn't even give a $59 pass to their sky miles club for the afternoon. It felt like an easy excuse so they wouldn't have to do anything since there were other airlines still flying out of JFK and to go CLE before my rescheduled flight which makes me believe it wasn't all weather. Since the flight was delayed 12 hours instead of being cancelled they wouldn't let me switch to a different airline either. Then, in the morning when it was rescheduled to it was again delayed because they first couldn't find a captain and then couldn't find a fort mate. We finally took off and arrived in Cleveland only to wait another 30 minutes for a gate and a ground crew that they couldn't find. I will never fly delta again."
Pros: "I didn't like anything about this flight. Only benefit of the doubt is the 2 hour delay as a runway in SF had shut down."
Cons: "We had seats at first where there was what looked like bubble gum bits stuck on one of the food trays. The flight was clearly not cleaned although it landed 2+ hours before the departure. We had to ask for a wet tissue and clean it up. That was of no use too as it wouldn't scrub off. My wife was feeling under the weather and so we asked for a blanket. The blanket was hardly a blanket and more like a towel. We then luckily could switch seats as there were 2 vacant. But, the air conditioner was leaking water in the seat to our left. The crew was callous and just stuck the passenger with some napkins saying it does that. I don't fly Delta a lot and my experience in this trip isn't inspiring much confidence."
Pros: "Pretty much nothing related to the entertainment system... It is nice that you can play movies for free over WiFi on your phone or tablet (since the in-seat system simply didn't work...), but, bizarrely, the WiFi movie selection was different from (and substantially smaller than) the seat movie selection. What's that about? And the WiFi movie scheme is way more painful than it needs to be, requiring you "check out" movies using your web browser, then switch to a separate app to actually watch the movies. Clearly the product of a company mindset whose ONLY concern is "can we check some box", with absolutely no interest in "how can we delight our customers?""
Cons: "So we get the same entertainment system all these flights use: some ghastly totally non-optimized Linux setup that was rebooted three times during the flight, took 20 minutes for each reboot, and never worked correctly after any of the reboots. (The only movie my system would ever play was the very first one, and none of the on-screen controls worked. The seat next door could choose multiple movies, but each movie froze after 40 minutes). The amazing thing is: why don't they just install a damn iPad mini or Android equivalent in the back of each seat? Would be lighter than what they have today and would work FAR better. You'd need some co-ordinating/provisioning software to provide for OTA announcements and movie updates, but basically it's not that hard... At the very least, hire a Linux-head to optimize your startup scripts! It's just sad to see this 20 minute startup process (all dumped on the screen) with its constant repetition of time-wasting startup steps that just generate errors on this plane's particular hardware setup..."
Cons: "It was Delta not Virgin"
Cons: "New design of the the plane with side to side bathrooms at the back leaves much to be desired. Those were the smallest airplane bathrooms I've ever used!! I had trouble fitting and I'm not a large person!"
Pros: "Nothing to like -- didn't fly"
Cons: "Delta delayed my flight so long that I'm now traveling another day."
Pros: "Overall.. It was Ok exept for the boarding experience described bellow."
Cons: "I bought the tickets through a third party website. Therefore, our seats were not assigned until the last minute, and once they were assigned, they were published in a screen with our initials. This practice was discriminatory and violateed our rights for privacy, We even felt that it could put our security in risk. I believe that one thing is not to allow clients to choose seats in advace because they bought the ticket through a third party website, and another thing is to discriminate an treat those clients as "second class" people. When I asked the person in the counter for the reasons behind this practice, she could only say it was Delta's policy to do it that way. In that sense I was very surprised with the practice because i bought an Airfrance ticket (not a Delta one) and I had travelled before in both airlines (Airfrance and Delta) and I had never experienced a situation like the one described. I strongly believe that Delta needs to review this practice."
Cons: "The gate for the connecting flight from NY to Rome wasn't posted at the terminal or available via the Delta aps. The Kayak AP didn't have it either. I found out late that it was practially at a different airport. With less than an hour I had to take a bus to a different terminal, walk through, exit onto the street, cross the street and walk down the block to a different terminal. Then I had to re-enter through security (where the line was wrapped back to the front doors). Had the flight not been delayed for mechanical issues I would have missed it. My flights were purchased through Delta. If Delta uses different airlines they should post gate information on their web sites."
Everything, the only good experience I had was at the counter when I checked the bag. There was barely any communication from frontier on why the plane was delayed, it kept pushing the time even when we were on The tarmac. Terrible experience
Avoid delays Add carry-on/ checked in bags option while confirming tickets, not after. No hidden fees Modern fleet with better sound proof system because air pressure was too much
I was in the airport since 6:00 am for my flight at 7:00am the plane kept getting delayed reasons I do not know. We finally pulled off at 3:45 pm and landed at 7:00 pm. I took a early flight so I can make it to work I missed an hole day of work because of so many delays.
The pilot somewhat made up for the delay by arriving to my destination in record time. A more frequent update as it relates to the delay should have been given. The cost of the ticket was reasonable but they made up for the cost by making you pay for your carry on luggage.
One hour delay, besides waiting at mco for gate… disaster, the worst
Pros: "Smooth boarding process"
Cons: "Flight was delayed, flight crew were not able to set boundaries with other passengers who would get up and delay the take off"
Pros: "I arrived to my destination safely."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 4 times. The crew had an attitude with everyone on the flight and didn’t even try to be nice. I understand that it is an affordable airline but I will just go back to paying more for quality (from the chairs to the flight attendant service). It was overall an uncomfortable trip."
Cons: "Plane is filthy Please clean the aircraft!"
Pros: "Seats need more cushion"
Cons: "Have more bilingual (Spanish) crew members to assist the elderly. Wheel chair or the MAAS was not provided even though the plain ticket had the provisions added on to it."
Pros: "Clean plane. Friendly service."
Cons: "Flight was delayed . Baggage took forever to reach carousel"
Cons: "We booked Fontier for our trip coming from Miami and flying into Chicago, months ahead of time. This flight was booked to return home after our debarkation of the Carnival Victory Cruise. There was an unfortunate event that occurred while we were aboard and only about 40 minutes away from being back in Miami; 26-year-old Thomas McElhany had gone overboard. Although we were close to the Miami port, The Carnival Cruise made the decision to turn the boat around in search for the missing persons body. We had absolutely NO control over this. After calling Frontier and explaining the situation, they refused to accommodate us, stating that they could not find another same-day flight for us and that we would have to also pay a cancellation fee of $99. Although many of our friends and family and even several other members aboard were able to be reimburse for their tickets with different airlines, we were stuck trying to scrap up enough money to get back home on a new flight. Not only was this emotionally draining as the situation created complete chaos aboard, it was financially draining, causing us to have to ask family to help to pay for our return home. Frontier could have done better in their attempt to accommodate us due to circumstances beyond our control. The only option we were given was to stay in Miami for two days and then fly out, only after paying the cancellation fee and paying the difference for a new flight. This too wasn't an option, as we would have had to stay on the streets of Miami, as hotels (for two days), cost. What was to be a great vacation turned into a nightmare and the airline that we hoped and prayed would be our saving grace, completely abandoned us. We are still trying to recover both emotionally from the situation that occurred aboard, and financially after having to book with another airline with money we didn't have."
Cons: "I got a notification that my 11:20AM flight from MIA to ORD is delayed for 5 minutes. Upon arrival in airport, I was told that there's a mechanical problem with the plane in ORD and that the plane hasn't left ORD (flight time 3:20). Thankfully, we had a place to stay for a day so we asked to be re-booked for the flight for the next day. Others took a refund and went to book a flight on a different airlines. Others had to wait until arrival of equipment and their plane didn't leave until 8:15PM that day (meaning they had to be in the airport for 9 hours!) I understand that the airline has limited amount of equipment and crews, but earlier notification would have been appreciated"
Cons: "They over charge you for bags and the seats are terribly uncomfortable. dont fly Frontier fly with any airline except them and Spirit it is worth the extra cost."
Cons: "Staff was incredibly rude and made my sister wash her face before we got on the plane."
Pros: "The flight was faster than expected which was very nice. Was a smooth ride for the most part."
Cons: "Baggage takes way longer than other airlines I've experienced to pick up from claim. Wish their were free snacks available on board."
Pros: "Check in process was very efficient, no wait. Plane was clean. Staff on plane helpful"
Cons: "Long line to board plane. 100+ people on jetway in Miami and it was very hot!! Very simple seats, not particularly comfortable. First time flying with Frontier and was surprised drinks and snacks not included. Costly, $650 for 4 seats Miami to LGA, one way."
Pros: "I liked the price but class of service given.....i would gladly pay more. I arrived at the ticket counter at 9am to a line of people with 12 empty counters.We were told by other airlines and security that they open at 9:30.Finally some came at 9:45...and then only one person. Also by the time I added an additional 65.00 for baggage my flight ended up costing more than if I would have taken a classier airline."
Pros: "I took a round rip flight from Philadelphia to Miami with Frontier Airlines. To my surprise the flight wasn't as bad as many reviews that I have read claimed it to be. I would recommend Frontier for anyone taking a flight no more than 2.5 hours. The comfort is subpar and the service is medicore, but hey it all comes with a cheap ticket so I can't complain."
Cons: "flight delayed twice after arriving at 5:30 am for a 6:40 flight. then it was cancelled at 10:30, 5 hrs later after waiting for the delay. The next flight was the NEXT DAY and they wouldnt cover a hotel for the extra night. They wouldn't reimburse the carryon fee ($35) or the seat fee ($16). Had to buy a flight on American Airlines in addition."
Pros: "I like that Boarding On time."
Cons: "I paid $35 for my carry on bag. And even can't find the space to put it on the cabinet above my seat. Flight attendant just tell me to look for another space. They never help me anything. It took me a while to find the one far away from where I was seated. One of male flight attendant opened the cabinet above my head, maybe grab his stuff but one bottle of water fell down. It almost hit my head and luckily it just touched my shoulder. It was my horrible experience. I picked this flight because it fits my schedule. Next trip I will never take it any more."
Cons: "to add our baby (lap child) to the reservation, it took multiple tries to reach a person who could help by phone, then she had to give up our reserved seats to rebook us further back in the airplane just because of adding our baby. If the ticket wasn't $50 each one way while on sale, there's no way we'd ever fly Frontier."
Pros: "I paid extra for more leg room - for me it made the flight less claustrophobic."
Cons: "The seats had very little padding which made for an uncomfortable flight."
Pros: "Everything was on time. The seats were comfortable. No big issues."
Cons: "You have a box to measure carryons at the desk and the representative said bags needed to fit it, but they never checked bags as they were brought on board, and many of them were way over size. That leads to a shortage of space for those of us who used correctly sized bags. You need to enforce the rules. The copilot's announcements were mumbled and very quiet. You could hardly hear them. The pilot's announcements were fine."
Pros: "No frills on this flight. I did not partake in the food or beverage services nor did I check or carryon any luggage but the flight was relatively smooth and seats were of average comfort but all of it was worth the great price I paid for the quick trip"
Cons: "No cup holders and my seat didn't recline so I couldn't sleep."
Pros: "There is not one positive thing I can say about my experience with Frontier."
Cons: "Where do I begin, the counter opens 2 hours before flights, and in our case it opened 90 minutes before, so the line was horrendous. Be ready to pay through the nose for well...EVERYTHING. Our luggage cost us over $200.00, our seats over $300.00 even a coffee was $2.99. The seats are ridiculous. We paid for the expensive seats thinking that meant we'd have extra leg room, and you know a reclining seat...haha!! No, we were wrong! We had LESS leg room because we were in the first row , we had to hold our purse/backpack in our laps because the overhead was full (Even though we were in row A! The flight attendants allow people to put their baggage anywhere, not necessarily over there seat, so we were screwed). Our seats were like sitting on sharp metal objects. We were 35 minutes late leaving the airport, the crew didn't see fit to tell us why. The luggage took twice as long as other airlines to get to.the terminal... In a nutshell this so called "cheap fare" winded up costing us over $1,000.00 once all extras were added. We will NEVER fly Frontier again."
Pros: "The plane did not crash. That is the only positive aspect of the trip I could come up with."
Cons: "I paid for my checked luggage, which was expected and fine, however I was told my carry-on bag was okay but it was not. After my ticket had been scanned at the gate and I was already halfway down the gangway, a gate agent began yelling at me to come back. The other passengers looked at me like I was a criminal or something and it was quite humiliating. The agent said (rather rudely) that I had to pay an additional $40 for my carry-on. I explained that I was told the bag was fine when I was at the ticket counter but they did not care. They further informed me that I was paying $10 more for my bag than I would have at the ticket counter, leaving me feeling scammed. I emailed the company immediately upon arrival, explained the situation, and asked for a refund of the carry-on fee given the unusual circumstances. I was flatly refused. Horrible experience, horrible employees, horrible customer service, horrible airline. Their ticket prices might be low, but that only seems to be to lure customers in so they can be tricked and swindled for more money. I paid more for my bags than I did for my ticket!! This company seems to operate on a "bait and switch" business model and through some research I did on them following this experience I found they already have compliants against them to the Better Business Bureau. AVOID THIS AIRLINE AT ALL COSTS!!!"
Pros: "If I didn't feel like I was price gouged with all the hidden costs I would have enjoyed it"
Cons: "Advertising is misleading, $216 turned into $550+ Ruined our whole trip"
Cons: "Outgoing flight was delayed by 18 hours. Cancelled my inbound flight and purchased a last minute flight with another airline and still haven't received a refund."
Pros: "There were delays in LGA that kept us in Miami and the crew handled it really well. They kept us informed, let us deplane, helped us understand how this was way better than zipping north and running out of fuel from circling, etc They kept everyone very sane."
Cons: "The fees on carry-on baggage are not obvious enough. For my return trip I was aware, but it really changes how I feel about this "low priced" airline. Also, the seats don't recline unless you pay for "special seats" and the tray tables are a challenge."
Cons: "My last trip with Frontier the flight was delayed on the way there and on the return trip. The way there the flight was delayed 3 hrs, and it was a red eye. The way back was also delayed and the power died or the computer system shorted as we were about to take off and it was further delayed because they had to do a system reset. And it is absolutely obsurd to design your planes without reclining chairs, your seats are the most uncomfortable seats I have ever flown on. And then to charge +$200 for two round trip for reclining chairs, ridiculous! I will probably never fly frontier again not will I recommend your airline to anyone."
Cons: "I realize that there are some things that are beyond the control of the airline and I don't blame Frontier for the delay boarding or the rough weather, but after sitting almost 2 hours on the tarmac before takeoff and then the fasten seat belt light left on for the first nearly 2 hours of the flight, there was a plane full of passengers who desperately needed to use the restroom, myself included. What really annoyed me was that while rudely admonishing any passenger who dared trying to go to use the facilities to sit back down, the flight attendant herself went in the bathroom and relieved herself. When the seat belt light was finally turned off, I made my way to the restroom and this same flight attendant told me I would have to wait because another passenger sitting in the first row had been waiting a long time to go. I told her "everyone has been waiting a long time, well everyone but you." at this point she got very defensive and began yelling at me about federal regulations and so on and that she is allowed to use the bathroom. That may be true, but it doesn't make it right. Perhaps because I ticked her off, or perhaps just because of incompetence, my wife, myself, and the passenger in the third seat in our row were never offered any drink service. I did observe that even after the long delays and general ordeal of the flight, they were still charging passengers for soft drinks. I think a comped drink would be the least Frontier could do under the circumstances, but I guess anything resembling customer service is too much to ask. Add to all this the uncomfortable seats, the being nickel and dimed at every turn, which makes what first appears to be a good deal on a fight into one which is more costly than better quality airlines, I would advise spending a little more upfront for Southwest or some other reputable airline. You probably won't spend anymore in the end if you have luggage and would enjoy a beverage on the fight anyway and you will be treated with more respect and courtesy and other you will sit in a seat that doesn't feel like an old piece of plywood covered in vinyl. On both the flight to and the one from my destination, I noticed that the seats would not recline. I'm not sure if I had seats in rows that didn't recline or if none of them do."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats; ruined handle on luggage;"
Pros: "The flights are cheap"
Cons: "The takeoff was delayed so we arrived late. They switched our bag carousel 3 times. There were no snacks nor entertainment. Worst of all it was freezing. The baggage fee policy is probably the worst of all airlines. I should have paid more for a more mainstream airline ticket; with the free carry-on allotment, it would have been cheaper in the end."
Pros: "I didn't like anything."
Cons: "The flight attendance wouldn't sell me water or give me water when I asked for it on the plane. This was before the plan was descending, so he literally had no excuse. She didn't even have the common courtesy to come to me and say she wasn't going to give me any water. We had to ask her why she didn't provide water even when she had a water bottle in her hand. I will never fly with Frontier again. Also they try and trick you with cheap airline tickets initially, but then charge you $40 for 1 checked bag each way and you don't get any perks! Not even water. This was terrible."
Pros: "The seats remind me of wooden school house chairs - narrow, hard (no padding) and don't recline. Fly another airline. By the time your done paying all the gotcha fees you didn't save any money flying this economic airline."
Cons: "Bare bones as it gets. There is zero entertainment - no tv, no wifi, ect. Seats are the cheapest I've ever seen in the travel industry. All the passengers were hunched forward because the seats were so uncomfortable. The trays are wide enough to hold two drinks. The trays can't hold a laptop or a magazine. Water is free which is one upgrade which is better than spirit. However, spirit had cushioned seats that recline."
Pros: "This flight was horrible from start to finish. This was a flight from Miami to New York, scheduled to depart at 2:25 and arrive at 5:25. Around 1:30 we were told we'd be departing at 3:30 instead due to "weather at LaGuardia." I'd like to point out that countless friends and family, and also every weather app known to man, assured me there was absolutely no bad weather in the New York area and in fact there wasn't supposed to be until that evening, when there was a chance of thunderstorms. So if anything, delaying the flight only increased our chances of running into said bad weather. In any event, we boarded at 3pm and then around 3:30 were told we'd now be delayed again, probably departing around 4pm. So we sat on the runway like idiots. We did leave shortly after 4pm, and then once we got to the LaGuardia area about two hour later, we were told we needed to refuel (????) so we were being rerouted to Raleigh. About 40 minutes later we were told there was a storm in Raleigh so actually we would be going to Newport News. This is absolutely no joke, but the flight crew nor the pilot knew which state Newport News was in and upon arriving they announced we were in Virginia and said they knew that thanks to a Google search. Keep in mind it was now about 8pm and we had all been prepared for a short flight that would arrive hours ago, so everyone was beginning to get really hungry and irritable. This is where the flight crew started to really, thoroughly suck. In addition to being completely rude to anyone who tried to ask if we could get some more information, they were CHARGING people for water and offering nothing in the way of food. Only after a passenger begged did they dole out granola bars and cups half-filled with water around 9pm. Also, this entire time we weren't able to leave the aircraft and this was when the bathrooms decided to go out, and they were out of commission for about 30 minutes, so that was fun. We finally got into the air around 10pm and landed in LaGuardia by 10:50. Also, just a note, but when we took off in Newport News the weather had turned and there was heavy rain and lightning. We had no issue taking off during the storm, but apparently the storm was the reason for the initial delay? Whatever. Anyway we finally landed in LGA after being on that plane for 7+ hours. Then, just when we thought it was over, we were told there wasn't a gate open and we would need to sit on the plane and remain on the runway for about 30 minutes. 30 minutes was actually more like 45, so around 11:30 we finally, FINALLY could get off and I have never seen passengers de-board a plane so quickly. Overall this was one of the worst experiences ever, and while I try and be understanding when it comes to delays, what really put this over the edge was 1) the lack of reasoning for the delays and 2) the incompetency and rudeness of the crew. They made no one feel safe or comfortable. This was the absolute worst."
Cons: "Everything. I genuinely can't think of one plus, aside from the comraderie of the passengers."
Pros: "The crew was great, but that was the only good thing about the flight. Expensive checked and carry on bags, VERY uncomfortable seats, no food or drinks, etc.. It may be ok for shorter trips for the price, but more than 2 hour flights, not worth it."
Cons: "When I get to the gate the woman told me that I don't pay for my carry on luggage even though it was the 2nd flight in a round trip flight. The first part I got on with the same exact bags with no extra charge. Instead of looking up my info she told me I pay or I stay. Without raising my voice I asked her to check but this caused her to get defensive. We had 5 min to get on the flight and we didn't have time to argue. Frontier robbed me of $120. I fly back and forth from Florida to New Jersey always using Frontier. This past weekend is my last time using that airline. Jet Blue and American will now get my business and I'll make sure I tell everyone I know about what happened."
Pros: "For a cheap, quick flight under 3 hours this was a reasonable flight. It has the bare essentials, especially if you are traveling alone or without children. The crew was friendly and unlike the flight TO Miami (delayed by almost 2 hours for maintenance reasons---the a/c was not working and the airplane was very hot. Luckily everyone was told to return to the gate and wait for the problem to be fixed) this return flight was actually early! The plane was clean and in good condition."
Cons: "Aside from previous mentioned delay to destination, the unknown fact that you have to pay for your carry on luggage AFTER ticket purchase was a bit of a shocker...but for such a cheap ticket price I was expecting some hidden fee's along the way. Having to pay for something as simple as coffee or a small snack (what happened to free peanuts and pretzels?) seemed a bit excessive also so i was extremely disappointed at this also. Also, the trays on the seat backs were EXTREMELY small, just about big enough for a tablet so I am not sure who the airline is saving that space for?.. Again, this is a great airline for short flights but I don't know if i will be using them for a long flight in my future unless they have aircraft's with more comfortable options."
Cons: "Everything. Got there at 6 am for my flight at 7. Didn't officially cancel it until 2 pm. And then they had no flights until 3 days from then so I had to swap to american. Which was a hassel. But they gave me a 200 dollar voucher so I can't complain too much. Yep"
Pros: "The gate attendant and the crew were all very nice and accommodating. Basic flight, no worse or better than any other airline."
Cons: "I did not realize they charged for carryon, so was charged $40 at the gate. So much for an excellent fare. Was not aware Frontier had changed to a "no frills" airline. It was also annoying to have advertising for their credit card, but a lot of airlines do this and it is equally annoying. Everything was a cost, even water. Well, now I know and can make more informed decisions before traveling with them again."
Pros: "Bags made it home"
Cons: "Delayed waiting for Captain; delayed for revised flight plan; still flew into bumpy air. No sick bags in seatbacks."
Pros: "The view from my window seat."
Cons: "Lets begin with the scam of low ticket prices. You you're getting a good deal until the day before the flight when you have PAY FOR CARRYON LUGGAGE. Then, there was an hour and a 45 min delay. At the airport, the Frontier computer systems were down, so getting on the plane had to be done manually. On the plane, some of the crew was rude like a man named RAY and the black flight attendant who used the most aggressive tone over the loud speaker. Here's the worst part, on a flight from MIA to NYC the plane had to stop and refuel in Philadelphia. If that's not crazy, I don't know what is! They told us it would only take 20 minutes, but we were in Philly for TWO HOURS! There was a lady that wanted to know what was going on, so she asked the flight attendants who told her they had no info. She asked for their names, which they refused to give to her and they proceeded to have her KICKED OFF THE PLANE by the captain. We got no complimentary snacks during this ordeal. I asked a flight attendant for free chips and got laughed at in my face. As you can tell, I will never fly Frontier again. The flight was supposed to leave MIA at 2:50pm and land at 5:00pm.. We got to NYC at 10:00pm. NEVER AGAIN."
Pros: "The fast boarding"
Cons: "The price of the flight did not include information about the luggage and seat fees. As a dependent of an active duty service member, I have never had to pay for luggage. Ever. And to have to pay for a seat on the plane, an additional $150 round-trip for luggage and pay for water on the flight too, it made me very angry. I will never use Frontier Airlines for any or my travels, nor will I ever recommend that anyone uses them either. In fact, I have already told friends and family to avoid Frontier because they are a total rip off!"
Cons: "My flight was delayed by more than 3 hours. The representative at check-in told me that the flight was coming from LaGuardia airport and was delayed due to bad weather (which I can still believe to be true despite any evidence of severe weather when I checked online). No one (from the check-in desk to the boarding gate) had any information about the delay and we were sitting clueless at the gate as the departure time kept changing frequently. No frontier crew was present at the gate to answer our queries or to provide reasonable respite in terms of water or meal vouchers at a very cold airport (heating wasnt working for some reason). This was aggravated by the fact that there are no complimentary drinks/meals on the flight. I would also like to point out a cheap trick that the airline tries to fool passengers with. They try to charge you for your seat when you check-in online. You have to skip seat selection to avail a seat at no extra cost. This on top of carry on baggage fees. It doesnt sound like a budget airline to me. A cheap one, for sure."
Cons: "I booked because of the cheap rate. Only to find out at the airport that they charge 25 for carry on luggage...I knew they charged for checking luggage but for a carry on?! ridiculous. Adding those $50, price is the same or more expensive than other better airlines. There was no food whatsoever. Almost 4 hr flight and no food....the food they sell is basically snacks...not even a sandwich. The seats are insanely thin and hard. Entertainment? You have to pay for that. Never seen this kind of horrible service. I lost my flight coming back from NY because of the bad weather conditions. The airport was insane, we got off in the middle of the freeway because cars were not moving and started running. I left 3hs30 before my flight and still lost it...thats how crazy it was. Not only they didnt offer any help, they wanted to charge penalty and put me on a flight 4 days from then. Tried calling and explaining, no one cares. Never flying this company again"
Pros: "It didn't crash and Im very thankful for that. They are good at collecting trash."
Cons: "The flight attendants skipped few rows and not offer us any drink or snack the first time they came out. I am sure they didnt do it in purpose, but I have never been in a flight that the flight attendant just missed people like that. The cart stopped next to the seat in front of me, the first flight attendant helped people that sat in the front, the second one started to asked and served beverages for the seats behind me. I thought the first one was going to help us, but they moved so fast and far behind us right after that. I have never been in any fllight that charge people for soda."
