Cons: "Load the plane from back to front. It makes sense as people leave the plane from front to back"
Pros: "I think Delta is upping its game, and I’m pleased to see that. Almonds for snacks, phone info about the state of your checked bags—good stuff."
Cons: "Of course the seat was not “super comfortable,” but whe you pick Economy, you know that."
Pros: "Availability of WiFi, a charging port and media options puts Delta a step (or two) ahead of their competitors. The professionalism of the crew, as well as the complimentary food/beverage options are also excellent."
Cons: "Not the airlines fault, but my 6’4” frame doesn’t fit very well in a middle main cabin seat."
Pros: "Quick flight...ahead of schedule"
Cons: "Cheese It’s are boring...miss the snack mix"
Cons: "Wider seats, more leg room"
Cons: "Getting to Venice on time. Our late arrival cost me a 90 euro shutle."
Pros: "Comfort + was nice."
Cons: "Had a middle seat between two other men. I was given my seat by the gate. It would have been nice if they placed my more strategically. That might be asking too much but seems reasonable."
Pros: "Nothing spectacular."
Cons: "The headrests won’t stay up. And it’s hot."
Cons: "Have rhe right to carry at least one luggage per person at no cost. Besides carry on and personal item. Tickets prices and luggage costs are extremely expensive."
Cons: "Seats are so small. Flight was delayed."
Pros: "Staff from Check in to aircraft very pleasant. Snack choice in Coach impressive."
Cons: "Denver airport is far too large for there to be such a small security check therefore it took forever and I missed the flight. Delta tried to charge me $1000 for another ticket to Albany and I decided to fly with another airline for half the price instead"
Cons: "The seats were in bad condition, I was surprised as Delta usually has well cared for interior and exterior airplanes."
Pros: "The flight attendants were all helpful and pleasant. The seats were comfortable. We were provided with plenty of liquids."
Cons: "The landing was pretty tough and we took off almost a half hour late."
Pros: "Check in Denver super helpful Gate staff hustled to turn around flight Flight crew excellent"
Cons: "Flight delayed, almost missed international connections"
Pros: "Boarding, friendliness of staff"
Pros: "Everything was easy and smooth."
Pros: "Anything from free WiFi, entertainment, leg room, commentary drinks and snacks. Great service!"
Pros: "The staff was polite and snacks were good (healthy options)."
Cons: "Nothing was terrible, but due to the short flights I assume they don’t worry about having planes with entertainment available."
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "In SLC they boarded by row numbers and not zones. Weird..."
Pros: "The fact that there was a screen for movie selections and a charging port for my phone and the flight attendants were super nice"
Pros: "Good flight crew"
Cons: "Delayed due to mechanical issues. For 3 hours. No offers for free drink or wi fi. When we finally land we were on the runway for half hour."
Pros: "Everyone was fairly friendly"
Cons: "Cramped foot room"
Cons: "Bags never arrived at the listed baggage claim. After 45 min, I saw bags on a different claim station and I notified everyone standing around. BUT, I filed a claim with Delta and was immediately given 2500 miles, as guaranteed!"
Pros: "Delta is great"
Cons: "Poor Delta DEN counter agent experience. Name on ticket didnt match Delta profile name nor TSA [rofile name. Delta counter agent would do nothing, except blame TSA. Would not check ticket name vs profile name. Happened two consecutive flights. Flight tomorrow morning has no TSA Pre clearance on boarding pass. This will be three consecutive flights. Also seated me next to a person who needed 2 seats to himself. Please never seat me next to a passenger who cannot fit in their own seat. I am switching to SWA."
Pros: "On two of the legs of the trip they notice I was a tall person with long legs and upgraded me to seats with more leg room!! I didn't even ask. Thank you."
Cons: "On the way back there were open seats with extra leg room and I asked the gate attendant if it was possible to switch my seat to one with more room and they said they only could if I paid extra."
Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "The Entertainment sucked. Again I was sitting in comfort class which in theory should buy you more comfort and better entertainment. There was a ton of movies from the 90s and the same movie selection from about 6 months ago when I traveled with them. Also, what is going on, with having to use your own cell phone to watch movies on the plane? Whatever happened to the screens in the backseat of the front seat? I ended up with neck pain from trying to watch a movie on my phone. Delta has become very cheap. It is going into some serious decline."
Pros: "Entertainment system is awesome and similar to what I usually see only on international flights."
Pros: "Most comfortable flight I have taken in some time. Spacious seat, power, good entertaiment, attentive flight crew. On time. Not usually a Delta flier, but times and destination made Delta the choice. Turns out a great choice."
Pros: "What a city.. Unique for hell sure..."
Pros: "Boarding super excellent! Also: Best landing I've ever experienced! Props to the pilot!!"
Pros: "Newer plane with movies."
Cons: "Airlines pack you on so tight."
Pros: "Excellent crew and comfortable flight"
Pros: "Friendly Staff"
Cons: "Check in was very hectic due to limited staff and getting bumped by the red carpet flyers. Boarding is always a little congested due to the lines. Better snacks please!!"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "Great,I loved it!"
Cons: "I fly Delta quite often, and am usually pleased with their service, but the morning of June 23 was terrible. I got to the airport in Denver at 5:30 am for a 7:30 am flight to Atlanta, and the line to check a bag was about 40 people long. I waited 55minutes to check my bag, as they kept moving the ski priority people, and people in danger of missing their flight, to the head of the line. There were obviously not enough Delta workers on staff to process all the flights at that time."
Pros: "The moviea"
Cons: "The time of night"
Pros: "Everything else fine."
Cons: "Made me check my bag - even though ther was plenty of overhead bin space."
Pros: "I didn't like anything because the fly leat 3 hours"
Pros: "First we had a mechanical after boarding. I was rerouted through Atlanta. That flight is now delayed by 2hours. I then had to reroute to West Palm Beach instead of Ft Lauderdale. I will leave 9 hours after my original flight time and arrive 8 hours later. Just ridiculous"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Smooth ride. Delta got everything right from takeoff to landing."
Pros: "Entertainment options"
Pros: "Upgraded to first class"

Pros: "Yes made sure mask was in place"
Pros: "I used frequent flyer miles for the tickets."

Cons: "Overbooked and crowded, on a Sunday."
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Lots of empty seats... during covid/social distancing there should only be 2 ppl in a row especially if there is room...it was crowded and not consistent with signs posted saying stay 6 ft apart"
Pros: "The pilot, crew, etc. was all good. Boarding was great, as was deplaning. There was a lot of communication."
Cons: "I'm a tall woman and I was never more cramped. I think in a long flight such as this 2.5+ hours, they should not be using American Eagle jets. They are so tiny and my neighbor and I were practically on each other's laps."
Cons: "Everything was dandy!"
Cons: "You were out of earphones"
Pros: "We were allowed to board early with my father, who is disabled."
Cons: "Denver airport was a nightmare with my disabled father. We were given a “wheelchair” but no escort through a nightmarish security scene. Airport is terribly designed, lacking clear signage and navigation. TSA was a disaster and no one seemed remotely concerned about my father’s comfort or needs."
Cons: "Less boarding groups"
Cons: "I have changed flights. Been delayed 5 times now. And still haven’t left the USA."
Cons: "I researched and called and found a 45L backpack so I could carry on my dive bag. That’s the reason I’m going all the way to Fiji. Not letting me get it in LA I’d also ridiculous."
Cons: "They have very long and annoying credit card announcements"
Cons: "Delay due to equipment failure, were not able to estimate delay"
Cons: "The crew was a little late"
Pros: "Not using kayak"

Pros: "The helpful steward"
Cons: "The bumpy ride"
Pros: "On time. Efficient boarding."

Cons: "I just wish that there was a little more room and easier ways to earn miles and entry into the lounge."
Pros: "No complaints. Keep up the good work, American!"

Pros: "Wi fi did not work."
Cons: "Sitting on the runway after landing because the gate is occupied."
Pros: "No surveys"
Cons: "No surveys"
Pros: "El problema es que el vuelo estaba sobrevendido y han cerrado las puertas antes con lo cual me he quedado abajo sin pode abordar. En el aeropuerto de Denver habia solo dos personas en el securty check por lo cual la demora fue involuntaria en mi caso. Cuando estoy haciendo la fila para ingresar al avion (esyando en la misma cola antes de ingresar) me informanque no podre embarcar..(claro ya habia designado mi billete a otras personas. pesima atencion y pesimna experiencia con los empleados de ese vuelo. Denver a Miami"
Pros: "The Denver airport is beautiful"
Cons: "I will never fly AA again - see below"
Pros: "Love the movies!!!"
Cons: "Passengers are allowed to take too much on the plane, which makes boarding & getting off take WAY TO LONG. If American would follow Southwest and allow 1 free bag, this problem would end. E"
Pros: "On time, friendly and helpful staff at airport and on aircraft"
Pros: "I liked everything from the way they got everyone on the plane to getting everyone deplaned."
Cons: "I didn't have a problem with the airline. Just a couple of passengers."
Pros: "Friendly service"
Pros: "Very nice and showed concern for safety. That made me feel good."
Cons: "No in flight DirecTV"
Pros: "Flights were delayed due to hydraulics issues, they got it fixed, turned it around quickly in Denver, made up time in the air, and got us in 20m early."
Cons: "Not sure why they add basic economy passengers to middle seats between others when there are open rows in the back. Would seem like they could set up the system to assign people to seats in the aisle/window first and then start putting them in the middle. We all moved before takeoff, but it would make things quicker and easier if they assigned seats in a more logical way."
Pros: "I missed my flight due to a delayed flight from denver to Washington. When I arrived I beg if there is a sooner flight to Geneva. They said no more. They book me another flight which has more connections. When I was waiting for my next flight there were actually more flight going and direct to Geneva before my flight. I even ask the gate personel if There is more seats avilable for one of those flight before my flight. They said yes but because I had a luggage it will take time to transfer my luggage and they will end up being delayed. United airlines is HORRIBLE!!! My flight were delayed and with that they should have more consideration for those costumers who were delayed. But instead of being kind and considerate. They had book me a later flight and the worse thing is the itenerary had more connections. Very Exhausting. The other costumer when we were in the line at the costumer service desk some people were given flight which are like 12 hrs away. How Horrible service. I WILL NOT FLY WITH UNITED AIRLINES AGAIN. Very POOR SERVICE."
Pros: "The crew made up for the delay."
Cons: "The delay and the communication were awful."
Pros: "Read above"
Cons: "Baggage took a long time to come out. Meanwhile they had the buzzer going non-stop to announce the bags for the entire time from when we got there until they started the belt. It’s around -10 degrees outside so the guys getting our bags are saints and the delay is to be expected, but the buzzer..."
Cons: "I was very cold!"
Cons: "They left without notification"
Pros: "Excellent crew"
Cons: "Everything was great"
Pros: "1st class experience was great."

Pros: "Staff and Pilots did a great job. Wheelchair was much apprecciated!!! Everything was on time or ahead of it. Great landing!! Wish you didn't charge for baggage and would like better snacks--oh for the good old days!"
Pros: "The landing was not good as we had turbulance. Other than that, everything was good."
Cons: "The only snack available was a mix that had dairy. Other airlines, like JetBlue not only have a selection from which to choose, but at least one option is vegan."
Pros: "Not a lot"
Cons: "The fact that we had to get off due to too much fule,didn't make a lot of us comfortable..when it comes to flying,the whole team needs to be on the same page..makes flyers more comfortable..but things do happen.."

Pros: "Got from point A to B efficiently."
Pros: "Not too much - the crew was nice."
Cons: "My flight from St. Louis to Denver did not charge me for a carryon bag. I was very surprised to be charged $50 for my carryon bag at the Denver checkin, When I complained I was presented with an incredibly rude attitude. The flight was crowded and the space was so very small and cramped. I will never fly Frontier again. Your cheaper rates are not worth the flight experience."
Pros: "We would not fly Frontier again unless it was a day trip."
Cons: "We booked this flight as part of a four week international trip. We were flying with quite a big of luggage, all of which they charged us massive fees for without leniency. Our ticket costs ended up being the same as other airlines who would have provided better service/facilities."
Cons: "Flight delayed - missed important meeting"
Pros: "Clean plane"
Cons: "The flight boarded when it was supposed to be taking off."
Pros: "On time, early in fact"
Cons: "Tip during drink service"
Pros: "The pilots flew the plane well and the crew gave a good preflight tutorial."
Cons: "Delayed bording time by over 1/2 hour, 4 crying babies, snippy/jerky flight crew and check in personel also charged me $75 on top of the $45 bag charge on my originating flight because my bag was 8 lbs too heavy, yes a whopping 58 whole lbs."
Pros: "Even though plane on tarmac for 20 min, made time up in the air for an on time arrival"
Cons: "Flight has attendant had very negative attitude, smart mouth remarks and seemingly did not want to be there or working at the time"
Pros: "This was the only flight out of 4 that the stewardess smiled and was helpful. Flight 160. I wanted to cry when I was actually treated like a person rather than a cattle call."
Cons: "I barely caught this flight as my connection was an hour late. I wished I had time to grab some food or drink. I went all day without anything but two small glasses of water (1 per flight). My anger though resides in my cheap 250 ticket actually ended up costing over 450. Traveling by air is becoming only for the elite of society. Next time I fly, I will travel with an airline that costs are upfront."
Cons: "I am a 75 year old female and I did not hear the overhead page for early boarding, as I am a little slower to get on the plane and would appreciate the extra time to get into my seat. When I went to board the plane (zone 3), another passenger and his girlfriend wanted to sit together and refused to move out of my window seat, even after I told the gentleman I paid for that seat, including extra ($6) for the window seat. I felt I was bullied me out of my seat that I paid extra money for and because then another passenger in the other row yelled at me to "sit down" so I would not hold up the other passengers from sitting down in their seats. I was forced to take the seat the gentleman's girlfriend must have had in the middle of the two other passengers in the other row across from where I was scheduled to sit. I know I could have called the airline stewardess but felt pressured to stay where I was because of the other passenger I had to sit next to who had yelled at me earlier. I wish there was more of an attempt to let elderly passengers board first."
Pros: "Flight leave on time and arrive early in Madison"
Cons: "No food/snack included with fare"
Pros: "A bit annoying with add on fees. Just a bus ride basically."
Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "The flight attendant talking throughout the entire flight. It was an early flight and wanted to sleep."
Pros: "Everything was great! My fave airline!"
Cons: "All good! Want to fly Frontier in May if I can!!"
Pros: "cancelled our flight for 5 days and offered zero compensation"
Cons: "I left for the airport 2 hours before my flight because it takes 30 minutes to get there. My flight was on-time when I left for the airport. When I got to the airport it was cancelled. WTH! No weather issues in either the from or to location so not sure why there was not more advanced notice. HORRIBLY handled by Frontier. This has happened too many times and I will NOT be flying Frontier again. Terrible planes and very, very unreliable."
Cons: "We were delayed because of mechanical /electrical problems. They allowed passengers to get off the plane. They finally admit they can't fix it. Now we have to wait while the people who got off get their bags again. Then we have to switch dates. Our flight was supposed to land at 7:19 it was after 11 o'clock p.m. my mother had the same experience on Frontier on Wednesday flying out to Denver. Frontier needs to get their act together it will be a long time before I book with them again."
Cons: "Canceled flight and no flights till Friday [4 days away]. Frontier incompetence."
Cons: "Noises sales pitch."
Pros: "flight was smooth and on time"
Cons: "My luggage didn't make it with me on Wednesday. I have to wait until Friday."
Pros: "The flight was exactly like any Delta or AA flight minus the frills at a very reasonable price. I added a bag & seat choice package for $100, but even with that additional cost my flight was $200 less than it would have been."
Cons: "The seats were pretty much very fancy, padded lawn chairs, and the tray tables that fold out from the arm rests are pretty much useless, but these are minor complaints compared to the value of the flight."
Cons: "I was notified about our flight delay this morning - at least six hours before boarding. There was no explanation of why, which doesn't always happen, but odd that alternate arrangements couldn't be made during that time. When it came to the planned boarding time, there was no update. The city name was removed from the board and a new one added. Still no update. We started boarding about 20 minutes after the delayed *departure* time. Passengers from the next listed flight kept shuffling in line, based on the confusion of the destination update displayed. It was a mess. Saving money on flights was not worth this hassle. Beyond the flight itself, here are some other gems of the experience: *upon arriving at the airport, at least half of the kiosks weren't working. There were hundreds of people in line, and five counters staffed. *when we arrived on our previous flight, we were early! However, there was a plane at our gate...and it had mechanical problems. We sat on the runway for at least half an hour."
Cons: "The $17 price for a seat when i checked in. Why would that not be part of the ticket price when i bought the ticket."
Cons: "I waited an hour and a half in line only to have the gate changed and for you to not let me on my flight. Horrible experience."
Pros: "timely boarding and arrival. Courteous staff."
Cons: "Upon arrival, baggage took over 15 minutes to be available to passengers and it was at different carol that we were told on plane. Frontier flight from Madison to Denver a week earlier was late to board. Time was made up in flight only to remain on tarmac for an hour and twenty minutes. It seems there is a shortage of staff. Was not informed of additional charges for carry on baggage."
Cons: "I don't like that they charge for everything. Seat assignment for two people traveling together, carry-on luggage and checked bags (note that checked is actually cheaper). They don't have gluten free food. In Madison, at a certain point there are no staff at the ticketing counter. They are at the gate and cannot help you."
Pros: "See above."
Cons: "See above."
Cons: "Don't mention a mechanical issue on a flight I just got off of, that's a little scary boarding the same plane. Tight, uncomfortable seats, no entertainment, only free water. Very poor, not the same Frontier I flew a few years ago."
Cons: "I was seated next to a lady with a dog. Why is a dog on the plane? She called it a service dog, not comfort dog. Had no identification collar stating either. I paid extra to sit closer to front of plane and this is what I get?? I have also have allergies so didn't appreciate being next to a dog. It sat on the ladies lap and looked at me with its tongue hanging out and panting while the lady slept the entire flight. Planes are full of germs already without adding the mess of a dog. Too many people are taking advantage of this whole comfort dog thing. New rules and regulations are needed. Snakes can get certified as comfort animals. What's to prevent someone from bringing such an animal for their comfort? When people board a plane it is expected that it will have human beings in it. Anything else should be known ahead of time. What about people allergic or afraid of animals. Please think of your paying customers first. My flight was $400. I should get better treatment than a $75 dog."
Cons: "Changed flight, Sat on runway for an hour. Missed my bus, had to wait 4 hours for another bus. Got all my stuff stolen while on the bus."
Pros: "We chose Frontier because it offered flights to and from our home airport at times that fit our schedule."
Cons: "I thought the price was competitive, but with all the extra charges, it certainly wasn't. When you check in you'll find that checked bags cost more than most other airlines. If you are bringing a carry on, that costs too. When you choose your seats, they cost extra. When you get on the plane you'll find cheaply made, narrow seats, with very little leg room. On top of that, the seats don't recline. Want a drink or a snack, even a small plastic cup of soda comes with a price. But to top it all off, one of our bags didn't arrive, and we're still working with Frontier to locate it and deliver it to us. I'll find an option other than Frontier when I fly again."
Pros: "Good, economical airline"
Cons: "Took forever to get off the ground"
Cons: "Frontier charges for the most basic amenities that other airlines provide (non alcoholic beverages and carry-on luggage space)."
Cons: "We experienced an unannounced, significant delay in boarding and departure."
Pros: "Letting me in though I got a bit late to the gate, due to unexpectedly log TSA lined"
Pros: "Crews were polite"
Cons: "No TSA Pre-Check Not even complimentary soft drinks!"
Pros: "I lived"
Pros: "Nothing, I was just glad it was over. The staff weren't awful but I had no interaction with them other than to day goodbye."
Cons: "First impression was that the tray table is the size of a hardcover book. I couldn't believe what I was seeing. The seats seemed like they might be doable but right away the armrest became a source of pain. After an hour in the seat of became a huge pain. By there time we landed another hour later my back and butt were very sore. I will not voluntarily ride in another am Frontier flight again."
Cons: "Frontier is now charging for seat selection, yet another hidden fee. Between the baggage fee for each leg of the trip and the seat selection, it was an additional $85."
Cons: "We were delayed on the plans for 2 hours. Very uncomfortable."
Pros: "Great flight crew."
Cons: "Two hours late."
Cons: "Delays and gate changes"
Cons: "Couldn't pick a seat prior to check in without a fee"
Cons: "Apology is at least"
Pros: "Great Crew! This guy was a stand up comedian and hilarious! Kept us totally entertained!"
Cons: "All the additional costs for baggage. Yikes! A cheap flight can become very expensive."
Pros: "The only thing I liked was the very funny attendant. He lightened the atmosphere and made me smile."
Cons: "I couldn't check in early because you wanted to charge for the seat I already paid for. Then, you charged me for a carry on. Who doesn't have a carry on? The attendant at the gate was extremely rude. The seats were uncomfortable. The plane made a high pitch squealing noise that made it impossible to even talk with my husband. You charged me for carry on bags on the way home but not on the way there which made for a horrible surprise. I find charging for carry on bags appapalling. I paid hundreds of dollars for the flight and you can't even handle a carry on bag without charging me? I will never fly Frontier again and have already spread this around on Facebook."
