Very smooth flight and landing. Pilot delivered his safety instruction in such a monotone that it wasn’t easily understandable. Words were said but he didn't communicate to us. If he was communicating to someone he cared about, he would have used inflection and other nuances of speaking. Virtually all emphasis was removed so it was just blah blah blah (really fast, like the end of a Pharma commercial)
My pilot on Cape Air was AMAZING!!!! I hoping that next time I fly I have him as my pilot. He made me feel safe and secure in his skills.
Pros: "Quick flight. Friendly pilot"
Cons: "Perfect flight!"
Cons: "Boarded half hour late. No explanation. Pretty standard on Cape Air these days"
Pros: "The pilot was amazing"
Pros: "Clean plane"
Cons: "Seat is not comfortable. It is too hard. My muscles fell asleep"
Pros: "Amazing view"
Cons: "Warning about what to take from carry-on, since it wasn't available during flight"
Pros: "Chance to see the coast and internal from above"
Pros: "I had the opportunity to sit in the co-pilots seat! What an amazing experience.. Flight departed on time too."
Cons: "Nothing at all.."
Pros: "Professional Crew and Staff"
Cons: "Newer planes"
Pros: "Pilot did a great job, flight was as smooth as glass for the 7 of us passengers!"
Cons: "Bumpy ride. Blame it on the wind."
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: "Cape Air never disappoints. A great option other than driving . Not to mention a great value"
Pros: "Quick flight. Excellent service."
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."
Cons: "Connection booked too close. Missed flight, new flight delayed. Kayak booking does not leave enough time to transfer."
Pros: "Got a shuttle from the plane to my terminal at STL. Very convenient."
Cons: "Rather loud, but I don’t think there was much the airline could do about that. Maybe earplugs."
Pros: "Crew was pilot and helpful in explaining the situation to me."
Cons: "Got bumped from a flight to make way for a pilot in training. The fact that this happened on christmas eve made it even worse. Had to wait until boarding to find out that was being bumped and was told I shouldn't have been allowed to check in."
Pros: "small plane soft landing"
Cons: "pilote acts like army general single pilote only air vent poor in plane"
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: "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: "Ride was smooth."
Cons: "No information nor staff at counter, so one was uncertain when flight would depart."
Cons: "Landing crew in Boston was rude, bossy, and repetitively sciolding, just because I touched the door of the plane. No instructions nor to or warnings were posted, but he kept harassing me and the other passengers.about "our safety"."
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."
Pros: "It is always a pleasure to fly with Cape Air. The staff especially in Owls Head are phenomenally nice and helpful."
Pros: "The pilots were really friendly, the plane was comfortable, and the trip was short. Nice take off and landing. Very smooth."
Cons: "The lady behind me kept showing my seat around and pulling on my hair. Apparently she didn't have enough room or something because it lasted the whole 45 minutes. We hit some turbulence which was pretty rough but not terrible. would have been nice to have arm rests. Also boarding and take off was late and which made me late to my appointments."
Pros: "The view from PR to St Thomas was amazing!"
Cons: "The departure was late for no apparent reason that complicated my meeting with family members in St Thomas."
Pros: "The flight was on time and it was a great flight on a nice sunny day! We arrived earlier than informed at the time of takeoff."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled because of engine trouble. As a result we miss our connecting flight to our final destination."
Pros: "They plain didn't crash although it sounded like that was likely when we were taking off."
Cons: "The lack of ear protection to cancel out some of the loudness of the small aircraft would have been REALLY nice."
Pros: "All aspects of the flight were smooth on a nice day and I really enjoyed flying at 7k feet. A lot of people don't like flying in small planes but I do. There is no bathroom, food or entertainment available and all of your bags go into cargo. I was the only passenger so it felt like a chartered trip. Arrived about 5 minutes early."
Pros: "I loved the whole experience."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for over an hour. Nothing was said by anyone at cape air until i asked the attendant at the desk, which led to an announcement being made 45 mins into delay."
Cons: "They have a bad rap in the Caribbean for bad service and unreliability, as I found out after my bad experiences. I was left stranded in St Croix because even though they charged me for the flight "my name didn't appear on their seat list." And they were like oops nothing we can do sorry. This time, they left me stranded in Puerto Rico. For three days they couldn't rebook me. Flight was cancelled on xmas weekend because the "pilot was over his hours." After they rebooked everyone else on the flight including my boyfriend, their computer wouldn't rebook me for some reason so I had to purchase a ticket to be able to leave. They assured me they would refund me but of course I've been emailing with Cape Air for a week and still no refund. Never flying with them again obviously, and recommend you avoid them if you have connections or need to get somewhere guaranteed. Maybe they have better service on the east coast but they should do a total overhaul of their service in the Caribbean."
Cons: "Booked with Cape Air a month before our trip to Bimini. We had quite a few reasonable trip options but decided the float plane would be fun. One week before our departure Cape Air cancels the tickets. No explanation, no rebooking, just a "I'm sorry, too bad, go find something else," we ended up paying full fares through United for another $1000. So much for our affordable weekend getaway. Thanks Cape Air."
Pros: "I'd probably pay for this flight as just an entertaining ride from above to see Puerto Rico."
Cons: "Was very disappointed. I missed my next flight in Boston because this one was cancelled 15 mins before we were supposed to take off- leaving little to no time to make other arrangements. When I first checked in I was told there was a slight delay due to 'wildlife management' then we got word that it is cancelled because of ice in Boston- it was 46 degrees. There was no compensation because the cancellation was due to weather. However, we were later informed that it was due more to lack of equipment. I have lost my faith in cape air"
Pros: "Great flight Albany to BOS. Cessna turbo prop. Super flight crew. Sure beats driving to Boston."
Pros: "Pilots, checking in and boarding process."
Pros: "*No security (skip TSA) *Private, intimate experience with just 6 other passengers (but without the luxury of a charter since the tiny plane has no amenities, entertainment, food, or even water)"
Cons: "*UNSAFE -- you better hope your pilot doesn't have a heart attack or seizure or even arm cramp mid-air as the shaky, ratchety little 8-seater doesn't have a second pilot. Airline unconcerned w/liability. *Pilot (Captain Darryl) was a jerk, which the ground crew warned us about - unlike Air Sunshine and Seaborne (which we flew to other islands during the same trip), he didn't allow you to take pictures w/your phone in airplane mode. *Price was much costlier than Seaborne and Air Sunshine flights; when I learned of competitors and tried to switch, no cancellation (even within a day of booking). *Customer service almost impossible to reach; long hold times, limited hours. *They commit consumer fraud by charging for carry-on luggage in addition to checked baggage without ever disclosing that prior to the flight (and the normal airline baggage policy doesn't apply). *With much better and cheaper options, NEVER fly this airline for your own safety, cost consciousness, and well-being."
Pros: "It's a small airport, and a small plane! So it's a pretty quick and easy scenario. The plane is small and loud, but it's a short flight over beautiful water and islands!"
Cons: "Small planes are loud! That's not going to change, but maybe bring earplugs to help! It was like being on a private Cessna!"
Pros: "Old plane but great crew and smooth landing"
Pros: "Professional and polite staff"
Cons: "There was no warning that this was an 8 person passenger plane, with no food, no entertainment, no bathrooms. Boarding was late and confusing. You couldn't keep your stuff with you... No bags in the cabin. It was cramped, cold, and loud. This all should have been made clear at booking... The staff was professional but did not give enough information either."
Planes could have inflifbt entertainment that works with Fire Tablets
Flight was on time. Crew courteous and knowledgeable. Good flight
We arrived early, then sat on the runway for almost an hr. I then missed my connecting flight.
Cons: "every single flight got changed multiple times worst experience"
Cons: "Flight entertainment it's kind of hard to set up depending on the device you own"
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "American's coach seats are NOT that comfy"
Cons: "The pilot on this flight was amazing!"
Pros: "The seat was super Uncomfortable. Squished Middle seat that I paid $37 for (w/Priority boarding, see below). What a ripoff. The seat was designed specifically to torture passengers, of this I am certain."
Cons: "I paid for a seat upgrade that included "Priority Boarding", For AA, that meant Group 5 out of 9. WTF?? Clearly Bait and Switch - there's a big placard at every AA boarding gate that states: Priority Boarding 1-4 (to the Left) and "Main Boarding" 5-9 (to the Right). Fraudulent, clearly."
Pros: "The seat was So so"
Cons: "My food was cold had to send it back"
Cons: "My bag is misplaced and no one has an answer"
Cons: "Paid for seats so I could sit with my guy - still had zero leg room. Generally disappointed with the state of air travel in the US - feels like we're being herded like cattle. Would like to vote with my dollars to help airlines that value customers and aren't trying to pinch pennies/nickel & dime us"
Pros: "Smooth for most of the flight"
Cons: "4:41 pm flight took off at 7:00 pm. Landed and now sitting on the tarmac waiting for a gate."
Pros: "Good seating and pleasant crew."
Cons: "Board in reverse order so the back of the plane gets filled first"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing. The flight was delayed to the point to where I had to stay overnight in Tampa because I would have missed my flight, connecting flight in Philly."
Cons: "Made it so I would have gotten out of here on time to make my connecting flight, and not have to spend another day in Tampa"
Cons: "Multiple lengthy delays, gate agents in Charlotte not committed to explaining the problem and solutions"
Cons: "Popup ad in already terrible gogo inflight media playback site stumped entire plan."
Cons: "They lost my bag in my layover at DCA. Even with a first class orange tag and 1:10 layover, they didn’t transfer the bag between planes on a Thursday evening. The planes were probably 300 feet away. Clearly their entire luggage tracking systems at DCA are broken. Even with 1:00 connections at O'Hare, DFW, PHL, my luggage has not gotten delayed."
Pros: "Both flight were on time and the crews were delightful"
Pros: "Nothing, was a very old airplane very uncomfortable for a long trip."
Cons: "Very poor entertainment, uncomfortable seats."
Pros: "Everything on time."
Pros: "Flight cancelled after multiple delays. Huge line with single agent to rebook everyone"
Pros: "It was an average flight"
Cons: "Delay of 2 hrs and it wasn't due to weather"
Pros: "The flight was delayed"
Cons: "Our original flight was cancelled so we were rebooked for a much later flight which impacted our vacation. Call system was not working efficiently."
Cons: "The space between seats is very short!!"
Pros: "Crew was polite and respectful"
Cons: "Communication was irregular, a meal was promised that was never delivered, delay on tarmac handled poorly"
Cons: "Flight got Delayed but they were efficient enough to get an alternate flight as fast as possible"
Pros: "Decent boarding group, same snacks, same flight attendants (who were very nice)"
Cons: "My only gripe is that paying for an assigned seat is only allowed 48 hours before takeoff and costs at least $30, twice what Spirit charges to allow you to select a seat during booking, so it is worse. No one watched us to ensure that we didn’t use the overhead bins (a stipulation of the fare) but we did comply anyway. We chose to take our chances and were assigned seats at the gate 16 rows apart and both in the middle seat."
Pros: "I liked the way the AA gate supervisor too charge of the problem and solved it, with great deal of personal imvolvement and follow up. Also check-in crew was very much the best. I would say that AA showed the best of passages care to me. Truly outstanding."
Cons: "Because of a mixup, though not of AA doing, I was literally forgotten at the gate. However, AA personnel showed the very best of can-do attitude and got me home for Thanksgiving. I am very proud of everyone working at AA at the TPA airport."
Pros: "Quiet clean bathroom good layover time"
Cons: "I called your customer service department which I believe is in India or Pakistan three times to ask them to help with an alternative flight and each time I got different information, when I asked to speak to a supervisor I was told by the punk on the end of the phone that that wouldn't be possible. I asked for his name and employee number and he told me his name was Michael, difficult to believe when he sounded Indian"
Pros: "Timely I have no complaints. The flight went well."
Cons: "Timely I have no complaints. The flight went well."
Cons: "Horrible long delays."
Cons: "Too cold on the plane"
Pros: "Tiny airplane but single flght crew managed my and from what I could see fellow passengers needs commendably. Whilst I didn't like needing to hand in my carry on (without much warning so I didn't have time to pull out a magazine to read) on the plus side it was stored well as my suit carrier came out unscathed and you get your bags curb side as soon as the plane lands so you don't have to wait for the rest of the bags to unload."
Cons: "Because the airplane is so small there is not much room to move in the aisle (thankfully most people just sat down for the short flight), also you have to hand in your carry on baggage so that it is stored with the main bags."
Cons: "Horrible experience in the ground system, they charged me $240 for my bags and the staff are really confused."
Pros: "Very friendly staff, on time, most of all very comfortable."
Cons: "The Oppurtunity that could improve is the boarding in plane to have passengers board in groups."
Pros: "It was fine"
Cons: "It was a full flight, but I cannot complain"
Cons: "Too many delays Seats too cramped Too much crowding at boarding ...need a single file roped off lines for boarding passengers by group numbers so there would be less shoving, K coming people down, and stepping on feet."
Pros: "Attentive staff, easy boarding"
Cons: "AA got rid of the video screens on the chair in front of you; poor snack selection"
Pros: "Great crew!"
Cons: "Pilot did a great job getting here, but gate was blocked by a fuel truck and sat on the tarmac for an extra 20 minutes! Pilot has now asked for a tug to pull us in."
Pros: "I flew first class. Philadelphia airport is horrendous. I chose to fly first class to avoid lines and make flying by my lonesome go more smoothly. There are no special lines for first class there are absolutely no perks to flying first class out of Philly. The first class flight attendant was rude. They ran out of hot food by the time they got to me so I was served yogurt ... I don't eat yogurt. I waited 40 minutes for my luggage to arrive at baggage claim. The flight to Philadelphia from Tampa was a good experience. They had first class lines. The airport was cleaner. The flight attendant Steve, was kind and professional. I was served a hot lunch. I'm a diabetic and when my blood sugar went low he got me orange juice quickly. I waited maybe 10 minutes for luggage at baggage claim. However with the horrific experience in Philadlephia I may never fly American again. Definitely will never fly out of Philadelphia again. I was told by the woman who I sat next to on the way home that she hates American and usually flys Delta for her business trips."
Cons: "AVOID FLYING OUT OF PHILADELPHIA!!!"
Pros: "Friendly staff, on time"
Cons: "No issues"
