Cons: "Unsafe pilot flew too low, chatted with passenger in right seat constantly."
Pros: "Staff was nice enough, outbound flight left on time."
Cons: "Runway lights were out on the way there, so had to land at a different airport. Forecast said snow on the way back, so all flights cancelled. Reasonable cause I suppose, but I expect a full refund - haven't received that yet, and because I booked through a third party, trying to get it has been particularly difficult."
Pros: "The views were beautiful! The pilot and co-pilot were great."
Cons: "Very small plane. Can be a little shaky."
Cons: "The flight was not on time. They lost my husband's bag and there was no one around to help us. When I did find someone they were rude and didn't know what to do or have information for us."
Pros: "Would it be driving for hours in heavy traffic from Wellfleet to Boston? Or would it be lunch in Provincetown and a short flight on Cape Air to Logan, where we would catch our plane to Seattle? We chose Cape Air. It's a nine-seat plane, so of course there is no food or entertainment. None is needed. On a perfectly calm and clear day, the experience itself nourishes the soul, rewards attention, and occasions reflection. Lovely!"
Cons: "Liked it all!"
Pros: "Pilot was great. Short, 20 minute flight therefore no food and no entertainment other than the beautiful scenery."

Pros: "All good."
Pros: "Great pilot! Awesome experience. Very safe. Pilot was diligent"
Pros: "The pilot was kind and to the point."
Cons: "The guy who boarded us told me to wait as his computer could not check me in. 10min later he is rushing me to get on the runway. It was 30min before scheduled take off. I had ordered food and had to cancel my order before the café had finished, so he wasted food and did not get paid and I was hurried and boarded the plane hungry. I probably won't use Cape Air again unless it's an emergency situation"
Cons: "Boarded half hour late. No explanation. Pretty standard on Cape Air these days"
Pros: "Chance to see the coast and internal from above"
Pros: "Professional crew"
Cons: "Leg room. New planes."
Pros: "Professional Crew and Staff"
Cons: "Newer planes"
Cons: "Bumpy ride. Blame it on the wind."
Pros: "Super nice!"
Pros: "Such a small plane didn’t expect the seats to recline. Liked the view but Boy is it warm onboard"
Cons: "Not much you can change on a puddle jumper"
Cons: "One minute into the Flight the Outside Wing Compartment Came unlatched and the Door To it was open about 9” enough that I was watching my Briefcase come close to flying off the plane. Passenger notified the Pilot and they Returned to STL to inspect the Compartment Latch."
Pros: "Fun flight to the cape. Awesome pilot"
Pros: "I flew in from Houston, TX to visit family in Sharon, VT. The closest major airports are Boston and Manchester and both are several hours away. For a few extra bucks, I can fly to Lebanon, NH thanks to Cape Air and save my family members hours and hours of driving. Very convenient. The Cape Air staff and pilots are always super friendly!"
Cons: "The plane can be kind of loud; it is certainly a good idea to pack hearing protection."
Pros: "Quick flight. Excellent service."
Pros: "Reach early"
Cons: "No ac but it’s ok"
Cons: "My Pre TSA Check did not apply to flight"
Pros: "Flight from Havre to Billings was fine, from check in through security and to the flight. Smoke from CA, OR, NV fires really limited the view, but CapeAir did fine with their service"
Cons: "Seats are a little small, but that is to be expected in such a small plane. Other than that, the flight was great."
Pros: "Staff were great - courteous, professional and friendly. Plane was a fun experience as always."
Cons: "Not Cape Air’s fault, but the smoky haze (from fires in CA, OR, NV) diminished some of the long views - vistas were not quite as beautiful as on past flights."
Pros: "Got to sit next to the pilot!"
Cons: "Nothing, it was an absolutely breath taking flight!!"
Pros: "Friendliest flight crew, airport attendants and security agents anywhere."
Pros: "Good people quick flight"

Pros: "Being the co-pilot"
Pros: "Flight on time. Nice smooth ride. Very friendly pilot."
Pros: "Friendly service, helpful, comfortable flight for a small plane. Good pilot, very professional."
Cons: "My only complaint is when we landed in WestChester we deplaned and had to stand in the -5F wind-chill for a good 10-15 minutes while they unloaded our bags. I don't know why they couldn't have taken us inside to wait."
Pros: "The View was spectacular. The plane was a little bit too smelly."
Cons: "The View was beautiful"
Cons: "I asked the ground crew for a box that I had checked and was told that it would be forwarded to my next flight. It wasn't. Now cape air is telling me the only way I can get it back is to fly to San Juan and pick it up."
Cons: "We were left waiting after the flight we were booked on took off full. Had to wait another 45min to have a private flight with no copilot."
Pros: "The ease of changing flights."
Cons: "Of the three women at the gate one was rude to everyone. The two others seemed ditzy and clueless. The announcements they made were incomprehensible to many in the passenger audience. There was substantial eye-rolling."
Pros: "You see there was a terrible storm that closed the EIS Beef Island Airport. But because I booked through ya'll I was totally screwed. The individual Airlines are not permitted to rebook my ticket because you are a third party carrier. and You would not rebook because the airline could not change the flight status on the first plane from Mayaguez to San Juan - that flight was not cancelled due to the closure but because I would be stuck in San Juan for possibly 2 days with no money and no where to sleep, well you get the point. So InterCaribbean and Cape Air came to the rescue and after a 4-5 hour ordeal and having to travel to Mayaguez airport I am now rebooked."
Cons: "Y'all and will never ever ever book through a third party again."
Pros: "Friendly & informative pilot, smooth efficient ground crew: they didn't bang up my vintage Levi's back pack..."
Cons: "No complaints...A+"
Pros: "Shirt flight no food, but bumpy. I almost threw up on a 25 minute flight"
Pros: "Hate crew diligently kept me informed of my bag connecting from my 45 minute late "on time" united flight."
Pros: "Still Stuck in Nantucket. Cape Air cancelled my flight and then didn't put me in another. I'm still stuck in Nantucket."
Pros: "The flight itself was nice"
Cons: "Being delayed and the process of dealing with the delays was a real headache"
Pros: "I sat in the copilot seat since plane was so small."
Cons: "Delayed so I missed my connection in Boston. I ran to catch it but the door was closed and they wouldn't let me on, even though plan was still sitting at the gate. I had 8 min to spare."
Pros: "Flying over the traffic heading to Hyannis where you take the ferry to Hyannis. Experienced pilot who told us the stewardess would be passing out food after we were airborne. Good sense of humor in a 9 passenger plane."
Pros: "I love the small planes and the overall friendliness of the pilot and the other employees - reservationists, ground crew, and others in the terminal. Once I landed in Nantucket, I had a 1 1/2 hour layover to Hyannis. When I went to check in with the reservationist, she asked if I wanted to get to Hyannis faster or if I had business on the island. I said I would like to get to Hyannis as quickly as I could, so she put me on the next flight which left within 15 minutes. After a long flight from LA to Boston, then to Nantucket, and then to Hyannis, it was nice to get home earlier than expected. I live on the Cape, and I love that I can fly into Hyannis. Then I only have a 25 minute ride home."
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Easy, painless and on time!"
Cons: "Everything was great!"
Pros: "The flight itself was good, pilot was nice, I got to sit in the copilot's seat which was fun."
Cons: "At the Nantucket airport, they don't let you through security until your flight is called. I heard mine called and went up but the woman at the desk said she hadn't heard it so wouldn't let me through. Ten minutes later, I'm being paged over the intercom. Again, I wasn't let through until I tracked down someone from the airline. By the time I finally got through, my flight had gone and I needed to be rebooked. Incredibly frustrating as the intercom is the only way to know what's going on with your flight, so I couldn't look at a board or anything to know the status."
Cons: "My flight from Rutland to Boston was unexpectedly cancelled with very little notice. I could not reschedule my trip because I needed to catch a separate flight from Boston. My alternative was to drive there and stay the night in a hotel, which was expensive and frustrating. I will be calling for a refund."
