Pros: "Very comfortable plane, 4 snack choices, friendly crew."
Cons: "It was all good, except that the charging stations were difficult to figure out since they were out of sight under the seats. I had to have the flight attendant plug in my charger."

Cons: "Long flight, difficult to sit that long (3 hrs plus)"
Pros: "Excellent crew and comfortable flight"
Pros: "Friendly Staff"

Cons: "The coffee on board is lousy, but I'm not sure that is much of a surprise."
Pros: "We purchased economy tickets in Delta. With these tickets you don't know where you are sitting until you get to the airport. Well, we lucked out and got the Plus seats! We got free alcoholic drinks, and big plush seats! We left right on time and got there early! Overall a great experience!"
Pros: "On Time"
Pros: "Great,I loved it!"
Pros: "Very nice entertainment and staff"
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: "The cabin crew serving the main cabin were exceptional. They were efficient, kind and FUN. We were an hour late leaving and 2/3 of the plane was worried about tight connections. They handled it with grace giving each person their departing gate and asking everyone to let a gentleman off with a 10 minute connection. They made the flight memorably enjoyable."
Cons: "Being an hour late isn't ideal and I understand that it wasn't their fault (the plane was late arriving into Denver. Those things happen. They still goto people to Detroit in time to make connections--barely."
Cons: "Flight was completely full and I was seated next to someone who required TWO seat belt extenders! I was so uncomfortable, they were sitting on top of me, couldn't even put down the arm rest. The flight attendant said there was nothing they could do."
Cons: "Hello allow upgrades to first class if they're available even when the flight takes off -on my flight in to Atlanta the pump three people up to first class and love them to sit in on my flight home to sit still empty what's up with that ?"
Cons: "Not having a seat assignment until arriving at the gate."

Pros: "Friendly crew, on time"
Pros: "First time I've seen Delta have zone boarding areas near the gate, kinda like what Southwest does with their boarding numbers. Kinda worked, kinda still a mess. One crewmember was nice to my son at the end of the flight, offered to get him into the cockpit for a photo op."
Cons: "Very little legroom. My knees just barely fit in the aisle."
Pros: "Don't know yet. We're still waiting to leave."
Cons: "That you're asking how it was before I left."
Pros: "Reassignment was pretty easy."
Cons: "No accommodations were available for overnight stay due to delayed flight."
Pros: "That we got home. Delta was apologetic but it would be nice if you didn't get stuck for hours touching and looking at the grime left by others."
Cons: "Too bad the attitude of one crew member wrecked it for her coworkers but this can happen. Sorry for Delta and pasengers. The plane was disgusting, filthy, miserable. Dirty trays for more than one in our party. The lavatory on starboard side was a wreaking urine splattered mess before the plane took off. Come on airlines. Take your profits and at least clean your crappy old planes if not replace them."
Pros: "Upgraded to first class"
Cons: "No entertainment system, no power outlet...for first class this is disgraceful"
Pros: "The flight crew was great"
Pros: "It was a pretty comfortable flight, with lots of options for entertainment. The food they serve was fairly good and the whole crew was very helpful and kind."
Pros: "Plane was clean and staff were friendly"
Cons: "The snack options were quite average"
Pros: "Everything went on like clock work, with no issues at all. We got the upgraded seats - delta comfort and they are great, which they weren't so expensive but that is life now when you travel. There is a price for everything. The. Crew was very professional and engaged."

Pros: "Flight took off on time and arrived about 30 minutes early."

Pros: "Only 15 mins."

Cons: "Poor leg room for tall people"
Pros: "Not using kayak"
Cons: "Kayak booked me the worst itinerary in the history of air travel!"
Pros: "Food was good. Staff was polite."
Cons: "Both flights were late leaving. Plus then we waited on board for a long time. Once on board and waiting, no explanation, no updates. No idea what was going on or why. An announcement would have helped a lot. Philky-Prg: Long delays with food , staff was slow on the Philly -Prg flight. Seemed like they didn't want to be there. No info from flight crew. Phily to Prg - Crappy old plane that should not be flying over seas anymore. Applies to both flights unless specified."
Pros: "The helpful steward"
Cons: "The bumpy ride"
Pros: "fairly comfortable, crew was helpful"
Cons: "Having to use my phone for entertainment, with no place to plug it in"
Cons: "I'm not sure where the problem was - whether with AA or Royal Jordanian, but my luggage did not make it to Amman with me. In fact, there was a whole group of passengers traveling on American from different US cities, switching to RJ in Chicago, whose luggage did not come on the flight to Amman. My advice: be sure to pack enough for a couple of days in your carryon - and don't accept an offer to check your carryon to its final destination!"
Cons: "We had five pieces of luggage lost during our flight from the U.S. to Spain. When we arrived in Madrid we were told that all five pieces had been located. When we went to pick them up the next day there were only four pieces at the airport. We were told the fifth suitcase would be delivered when it was located. It's ten days later and there's no sign of the luggage. It has taken multiple phone calls to get the information about the luggage correct. They assure me that they have everything correctly documented and then when I call back they haven't changed a thing. It has been a very frustrating process overall."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, good legroom."
Cons: "Not enough coffee for breakfast."
Pros: "Arrived 20 min early. Smooth flight."
Cons: "Didn’t have individual movie screens."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable enough"
Cons: "They force you to get to the airport really early."

Pros: "The crew was awesome."
Cons: "You guys lost our luggage!"
Pros: "Good connection"
Pros: "I like that American offers free movies thru their app but there was a glitch and I couldn't get it to work!"
Cons: "Couldn't get the entertainment app to work"
Pros: "Boarding was smooth, staff was responsive and we arrived early. Basic flight - not bad and nothing wow."
Pros: "There was nothing too bad other than I wasn't able to check in online bc our first leg of the flight was operated by American Airlines. But there wasn't anything that really stood out that would make me want to fly them again other than it was the best price."
Pros: "The crew was very helpful at each stop even though they weren't responsible for the disasters."
Cons: "Initially we thought we were flying with British Airways. We then had to do some digging to realize it was all out of American Airlines. Then we couldn't get proper boarding passes and luggage tags until one of the crew members spent a significant amount of time untangling each leg of our trip so they were in the proper order. We got delayed by 4 hours in Chicago and missed our connection in Manchester. We had another 5 hour wait there. By the time we got to Dublin, our bags didn't also arrive. After almost 24 hours of travel, we arrived but without all of our stuff."
Pros: "Easy flight, friendly crew."
Cons: "Girl next to me being sick the whole time"
Pros: "Flights attendants were super friendly and the plane was very clean"

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: "Overall great flight and great service. No complaints!"
Cons: "Late departure. Seats were double booked. Had to delay again to sort it out."
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: "My departing flight crew was very accommodating for my baby and I. They were very pleasant."
Cons: "I wasn't able to board first with my baby, so I had to try and walk through all the passengers with a baby, diaper bag and small carry on. It was a little difficult."
Cons: "I had a severe back injury in Denver and they were unable to move my flight up a day to get home and see a doctor. A good friend had to buy me a new flight with his airline miles so that I could get home to relive my pain. I'll never fly American again because of this complete lack of compassion and care for their customer."
Pros: "The flight attendants on this flight were very nice and helpful."
Cons: "Extremely unorganized. Sat on the plane for about 2 hours before we could even take off. There method for lightening the plane was extremely poor. The entire plane ending up missing connecting flights. No food left to purchase...no drinks served to the back of the plane til about 3 1/2-4 hours into the flight."
Pros: "On time. Good crew and nicer flight."
Cons: "Actually no complaints."
Pros: "Entertainment modules in cabin were nice"
Cons: "Forced to check my bag in at the gate. Upon completion of boarding, there were several empty spaces in the overhead bins, and my bag could have fit easily. Upon arriving in Houston, baggage claim was VERY slow. Small flight of less than 30 people. Southwest had 3 flights arrive and complete baggage claims by the time our bags became available. Airport personnel confirmed that it is typical or normal for American because they operate with a small "skeleton" ground crew. Flight arrived just after 11:20pm,, but wasn't able to head out for transportation until after 12:30am. VERY upset and disappointed with service."
Cons: "Small narrow seats"
Pros: "Friendly service"
Pros: "The crew moved quickly to get us in the air once we had a plane to get on."
Cons: "I waited in an airport for 10 hours because there wasn't a place to get on. They messed up the schedule then two different planes had problems that made them unsafe. This made me feel uneasy about flying with them at all. Overall not a good experience."
Pros: "The flight was fine"
Cons: "Both flights each way where delayed significantly"
Cons: "Flight was canceled going back to denver from Augusta. American did nothing to compensate me for their mechanics breaking. Had no place to sleep and no transportation as I return my rental. Poor customer service will never use American again!"
Cons: "American delayed the flight 7 times before cancelling it. They then put me on a flight 7 hours after the initial departure time. That flight was delayed 7 times and then they cancelled it. I wasted 10 hours at the airport."
Pros: "how easy it was to purchase ticket on kayak."
Cons: "Being charged for my checked bag unexpectedly at check in."
Pros: "Standard boarding"
Cons: "Once again more delays. Parked on the Tarmac for over half hour until takeoff. Don't know why but thankfully the pilot didn't lie like the previous flight."
Pros: "Space security manners"
Pros: "Seats were comfortab"
Cons: "The flight attendants, could have been a bit friendlier"
Pros: "Cool TV roomy seats , friendly staff."
Pros: "Arrived home safely"
Cons: "Arrived very early due to logistics and our flight was not leaving for 9 hrs and the AA Representative would only put us on a earlier flight if we paid a large fee, so we waited then the original flight was delayed 2 hours and we nearly missed our connection in another city, it all could have been avoided if a little flexability and care were involved to put us on a earlier flight"
Cons: "Lack of bendable head rests Snack options"
Pros: "On time departure."
Cons: "It was a CRJ-700, but I was cramped..."
Cons: "Tuna and crackers as a first class snack option? And yes, pay for WiFi again."

Cons: "Seats in economy were cramped! Chair barely leaned back at all. Woke up with a sore neck. Cabin was freezing!"
Pros: "The flight attendant was trying to be accommodating. I and other passsengers bumped our heads when getting into seats. Can we say SMALL plane?"
Pros: "Flight and crew great"
Cons: "I had one small bag and just did the economy and was going to put it under the seat. The guy at the checkin did not allow my bag and made me check it EVEN THOUGH it fit in their mock tray. He said I squeezed the sides 1 inch and that it just need to go in the tray by gravity. That is complete BS. As long as it fits under the seat and I am not putting my feet in others space thats is all that matters. Check in people at least one guy in Denver needs to be retrained."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "The seats r too small"
Cons: "Flight delayed 45 min to change a tire. Takes too long to get paperwork for mechanical issues completed. Delayed 10 min on arrival while gate was readied. They had 2 hrs to get ready!!"
Cons: "Gate attendant did not help people asking questions and snickered as an elderly couple walked away confused."
Pros: "Phone charger at every seat"
Cons: "Earphones for movie did not work"
Cons: "Very late."
Cons: "Boarding by zones causes passengers to have to stand longer while waiting to board, inconveniences them by having passengers seated in window and middle seats often arrive after the passenger in the aisle seat, and slows down the entire process because passengers settling into the front part of the plane frequently board and stow luggage while those seated in the back queue up behind them. Compared to boarding by row, the entire process is now one lengthy mess."
Pros: "It was a quick flight that was really nice"
Cons: "People got on at the last moment"
Cons: "My flight was ten hours late and no accommodations were provided. 40% off tickets to hotels and no way to get to them."
Cons: "Very bumpy ride....but I realize that can't be helped"
Cons: "Firat flight wver. Age 28. Lots of turbulence. 4 hour delay with no explanation"
Pros: "Amazing plane with great features! Incredible staff!"
Cons: "Bathrooms should be bigger"
Cons: "Delayed and got downgraded"
Cons: "Wouldn't let us off the plane for over an hour. 100 yds from the gate. Got home after midnight."
Pros: "Never been treated so disrespectful and like I was insignificant in allyour life!"

Cons: "Customer service, terrible desk agents and a triple delay."
Pros: "nice flight attendancts"
Pros: "Good crew, smooth flying, on-time"
Pros: "There was a lot of space and a quick departure."

Pros: "The crew was very kind to everyone and it was a very pleasant flight!"
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Aircraft interior is dated."
Pros: "Hard working efficient crew. On time; a pleasant flight. Excellent flight attendant who covered all requests on her own."
Cons: "No problems"
Cons: "The plane temperature was ice cold and I was miserable the entire flight home"
Pros: "The kindness of the staff."
Cons: "Having to go back to Denver because of a storm-in Omaha."
Cons: "I think United is improving constently"
Cons: "Seats are not comfortable and no leg room"
Cons: "Crew was not particularly friendly. One man was brusque when I asked for water to fill my small bottle. Rare since most crew members I've experienced have been very pleasant. Snacks were pretty paltry. Ned to serve some biscotti."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly, and that's really all that matters. The crew was great."
Cons: "Don't know why we have to pay for entertainment. It used to be free."
Pros: "I liked the flight attendants that they were courteous and helpful"
Cons: "I am a fearful flyer and that is putting it mildly. I didn't like that the pilot didn't introduce himself and talk to us about the flight."
Pros: "I liked nothing"
Cons: "I didn't like everything. All my United flight were delayed, the international was cancelled after waiting for 7 hours of delays."
Pros: "Crew nice and friendly."
Cons: "Free in-flight entertainment should be offered on all flights of 2+ hours through the United app. Had a family with young kids next to me who would have benefited from it (I saw the father trying to connect to it through the app), and overall it would make the flight a much more pleasant experience. After boarding a full hour later than what was originally said, it would have been nice to kick back with a movie for the flight."
Pros: "I know it's some sort of miracle. But there was only 40 people on an airbus. We all had about 3 seats each and we made full beds for ourselves."
Cons: "Boarded and left late for many to miss connections. No real help to get to new connection both on plane and off."
Cons: "Great employees!"
Pros: "A everything was fine other than..."
Cons: "Horrible flight delayed an hour and the. Waiting an hour for my bag to learn it didn't make flight even tho I was at ther airport 2 hours before flight left. They said couldn't deliver it until the next day so had to go back to the airport to get my bag! Horrible experience !"
Pros: "People at desk in Chicago very helpful"
Cons: "Terrible communication about flight info caused us to miss a flight. Limited desk hours made it a painful experience. I will never fly with Aer Lingus again!"
Pros: "The flight attendant tried to work with the overpacked plane."
Cons: "Overcrowded, items stolen from luggage, my bag was open when I was trying to get it off baggage claim, I only had half a seat, the flight smelled horrible."
Cons: "On April 15 we flew from Sacramento to Basel, via Los Angeles and Munich. We did exactly what we were told re reserving seats. We were told to call 23 hrs. in advance to reserve seats. When we tried to follow directions, we were not able to check in. Without checking in, we could not reserve seats. After numerous phone calls, to various numbers, we were not able to check in or reserve seats. By continuing to ask questions, to try and understand, we were told we were "under airport control". This was an "at random" situation and online check in was not available. Only 5 minutes earlier, we were still being instructed to check in online! We had never heard of this. I contacted a neighbor, who flies often internationally and within the U.S. He said it had happened to him once. He agreed that driving to the airport in Sacramento was a wise decision. This is not what we wanted to be doing 1 day before departure. At Sacramento we found a kind gentleman who saw our dilemma and checked us in as a favor. We saw assigned seats. He suggested we request to improve our seats the following travel day. It was a very challenging morning. As I tried to improve our seating the following day I was told, by airport staff, that this happened because we booked through Kayak? Rather with an attitude that we should have booked differently. This was a vacation we had looked forward to for years. I worked hard at not letting this difficult start damage my trip. Upon arrival in Amsterdam, I tried to learn more, to prevent a similar situation on the way home."
Pros: "Love the free tv/movies with the United App. That was great!"
Pros: "I liked how the flight attendants treat people in this flight. Thank you all."
Pros: "As above"
Cons: "As above"
Cons: "Terrible gate issues, confusing layout, flight attendant was a bit harsh, very uncomfortable !"
Pros: "Good flight attendants"
Cons: "Small seats"
Pros: "Good price on short notice. That will bring me back to a Frontier flight in a pinch."
Cons: "Baggage fees, Cramped seating, impatient personnel, and the website— good LORD they had about 10 screens trying to sell me more things before I could just check in!"
Pros: "Crew was very nice. Price was good."
Cons: "The seats were hard as rocks. My flight was only 2 hours and it was painful to sit in those seats that long. We were told 1 hour delay and it turned out to be two hours."
Pros: "Direct flight from Denver to Milwaukee. Didn't have to wait on tarmac so that was a plus."
Cons: "Have to pay for every little thring down to the peanuts"
Pros: "It was a direct flight so it was presumably faster."
Cons: "Seats were small and thinly cushioned."
Cons: "They lost my luggage and everything was a disorganized mess ans the flight attendants were dumbfounded when asked if we should stay on the plane and reboard for the flight to milwaukee when it was supposedly going to St. Louis"
Pros: "The plane interior was in much better repair than the first plane!"
Cons: "The seats are smaller than on some of the other airlines."
Pros: "frontier charged me another $99 after I showed up 2 hours early just to find out my flight left 40 min prior to me showing up. A whole 2hrs and 40 before my flight time. And no notice at all."
Pros: "Worst airline ever. Cancelled the flight due to operational issues and had nothing to offer except a flight 4 days later. Total waste of time and money."
Cons: "Respectable airlines will offer you something to get to your destination - booked on another airline or at least a hotel if you are stuck. This is not a respectable airline."
Pros: "On time, easy boarding."
Cons: "Very cramped seating. All the add on costs. Having to pay extra for a seat after having paid for the flight. How can I take the flight if I choose not to pay for a seat. Seems a little silly to pay that separate. I can understand having to pay for bags."
Pros: "Flight was on time and crew was great"
Cons: "Paying for a seat, paying to carry on a bag, pay to check a bag, $3.00 for a cup of coffee, no entertainment options. Basically, all the fees cost more than my ticket!"
Pros: "On time- clean"
Cons: "Seats can't move to lean back"
Pros: "Staff was friendly on my flight"
Cons: "My bags never made it to my destination. It was a direct flight and I was told it was probably left at my departing city"
Pros: "Good initial price. We left on time without delay."
Cons: "Paying for carry-ons more than checked in bags is crazy. Seats that don't recline make for an uncomfortable flight. Paying for snacks after paying for baggage and flight is unreasonable."
Pros: "el viaje fue muy bien gracias"
Cons: "Delayed two hours"
Pros: "On time, reliable"
Cons: "flight was two hours late. Do not like the fact of "paying" for coffee, water, pop...."
Pros: "I liked the affordability of my ticket"
Cons: "I didn't like the uncomfortable seats that don't recline, the tray tables are a joke (Way to small) , there were NO complimentary snacks or drinks for a 2 almost 3 hr flight, the snacks for purchase were to expensive, and the crew was kind of rude and not considerate."
Cons: "TWO HOUR DELAY ON THE PLANE !"
Pros: "I got to my destination for a lower price than other airlines."
Cons: "Frontier still presents as a nice airline but treats people horribly and charges out the wazoo for every last thing. Spirit does as well, but they're up front and transparent in the quality of product you're going to receive."
Pros: "See above."
Cons: "See above."
Cons: "Give me a break"
Cons: "$45 for carry on"
Pros: "I really liked that they got me to the front of the line at bag check in because the lines were very long and I would have been late!"
Cons: "Having to pay for a soda and the tray tables are ridiculous I could hardly fit my drink on it!"
Pros: "on time"
Cons: "no first class"
Cons: "Ride was rough and my daughter go sick. My wife had to clean up the area and I had to take garbage and put it in the garbage can. Staff did not want to touch anything."
Pros: "The staff was wonderful."
Cons: "You pay for everything. Chairs are the most cramped of any flight u have taken. Bare minimum everything. Only get water complimentary."
Cons: "Surprise! $40 each way to bring a bag?!? Even a carry on?? What's next, paying to use the bathroom or breathe the air? Huge line to check in. Staff did call flights that were leaving so we wouldn't miss our flight, but still stressful."
Pros: "the flight was nice a smooth the attendants were very freindly. the only reason I selected this airline was because of the times leaving Denver and arriving into Milwaukee"
Cons: "boarding was very slow, the seats were very tight to sit in, the only thing that did not cost anything was water (unbelievable). this airline charges for everything and gives nothing back in return. I was surprised there was not a charge to go to the bathroom.. i plan on not using this airline again."
Cons: "My bags as well as my associates bags ( 13 people total) were not sent to our destination. Therefore we were at our work convention without our suits, and no running material for our company wide 5k . It was raining so I had soaking wet clothing and no change of clothes. All in all not very pleased with my experience."
Cons: "The extra fees for your seat, luggage, including carry-on bags and all food and beverages! And tipping the crew for those services."
Cons: "The attendant woke me up after finally finding a position slumped over the tray (read above, no reclining seats) to ask about trash because we had a water bottle he was worried about us leaving. Very rude. Plus, as we saw a youngster dropping zip bags on the ground and that family wasn'tbeing eye balled by the staff. I wanted my overhead bad that I paid extra for, over my seat or a little in front of us so we didn't have to wait for the entire plane to empty before we could get it and the same attendant tried to push out back and was argumentative about it. He was one of the worst attendants in my experience."
Pros: "Price was great and flight was relatively on time."
Cons: "idiotic add ons to drive up the price. waited for a gate waited an hour for my bag that I HAD to check to arrive on the carosel and missed my prepaid shuttle"
Cons: "Flight was delayed hours once we were on the plane because the pilot was late."
Cons: "We boarded an hour late then sat for an hour with no explanation until the last flight attendant made it to the plane. Nothing was included- even coffe would have been over $2. The chairs are plastic and don't recline. Terrible."
Cons: "We arrived ahead of schedule landing in MKE. But we waited out on the tarmac over 30 minutes before a gate was open. ReallY? In Milwaukee, there was no gate open. it's not like it's Ohare."
Pros: "Flight Attendants had high energy and were very catering and kind! The flight itself was smooth and easy, strait shot to my destination!"
Cons: "small seats and crowded rows"
Pros: "The male flight attendant (I cannot remember his name) was very funny and lighthearted. I"
Cons: "Charged for a carry on. Seats were uncomfortable. Had to pay for a soda."
Pros: "nice and clean plane."
Pros: "the stewardess were really nice."
Cons: "i had to buy water."
Cons: "Fee's for luggage and carry ons. In other airline its already included Fee's for luggage and carry ons. In other airline its already included. Delayed flight"
Cons: "I had to pay for my carry on and for picking my seat! Only water is free on the airplane. Everything else is not. What a rip off. I've been on other airlines where soda is conplimentry and even my carry on is free. Too bad I purchased 4 plane tickets for 4 separate occasion at the same time. Already used 3 and one more left to use. I will NEVER fly Frontier again."
Cons: "Baggage was badly damaged at claim and partly missing, it looked as if something had run overrands my backpacking backpack, causing the ultra strong material to tear in multiple places, terrible customer service. Also my tent that was securely attached to the bag was lost or stolen by baggage handlers and I have not heard back about this. Overall terrible"
Cons: "Same as above"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled and we told we could fly out 5 days later. No attempt to get us on another plan was made. We were only going for five days so we cancelled. This is the second time we have had issues with Frontier. Very shitty airline."
Pros: "They did not loose my luggage"
Cons: "Cramped seating"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled and there was no back up flight. Was horrible"
Pros: "they where friendly and the flight was comfy"
Cons: "This airline nickle and dimes you to death I was about to have to pay $60 to check my back pack witch had barely anything in it!"
Pros: "Your staff was very nice, other than that I don't have much to comment on."
Cons: "Just about everything I was not happy with. Carry on prices, I couldn't even get my laptop on the seat in front of me because it was too small. Your seats were like sitting in lawn chairs the whole flight, I was very uncomfortable about 40 mins into at 4 hour flight."
