Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "If iris on time"
Pros: "On time. Nice crew. Comfortable smooth flying plane."
Cons: "Nothing really."
Pros: "Arrived at destination safely"
Cons: "Sat on tarmac for over two hours before taking offf, with periodic vague updates from the pilot that changed scenarios from possibly having to disembark and change planes to everything being ok..."
Cons: "Free food and blankets"
Cons: "Our flight was late getting off. One of the flight attendants was very rude and dismissive. But one of the flight attendants was extremely good. It was only an hour and 50 minute flight so the food really wasn’t important but it would be Nice to have something different than the standard pretzels"
Pros: "Our Airbus plane was from the Virgin fleet. The interiors are different from the Alaska Airbus fleet. Seats are more comfortable, there's an in-seat entertainment system, and wifi is different - it's Viasat not Gogo, and it's just $6 per flight - much cheaper than Gogo. However there's no in-seat power like on the Alaska planes, and the entertainment system doesn't allow you to view on your own device like Alaska's planes do. Hopefully they can combine the best of both as they merge service."
Cons: "No food options even through flight is 90 minutes. Should at least offer the fruit and cheese platter."
Pros: "Boarding and disembarking is always quick and organized. Flight crew is always great. Have to separate my experience with customer service group. Thats a different story."

Pros: "Everything was great"

Pros: "The entertainment ward top notch!"
Cons: "Bluetooth headphones didn't work. Would like to see that as a possibility."
Pros: "The plane was late. I was tired"
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"
Cons: "I don't like the fact that the clean-up crew cam on board while we were trying to exit the plane. It took about 30 minutes because the crew was trying to clean. I will never fly Alaskan Airlines again because of this."
Cons: "On bag should be free!"
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: "Didn’t get on the flight at all, flight was canceled in sfo and the. bumped around for another eight hours"

Cons: "Delay on runway"
Pros: "The staff was super friendly and the plane was new. It felt brand new."
Cons: "1 hour delay. I asked. Front desk said it was due to sfo fog. Me: Isn't it 2017? They have radars now; I have flown from Boston under severe snow storms. Yes. I have."
Cons: "the meanest most rude racist hostess ever! her insinuations and degrading way of speaking to me left me speechless. i will file a format complaint and might even take it further."

Pros: "The crew on the flight was very friendly. Pilot was very informative."
Cons: "Flight was relocated to a different terminal."
Pros: "By far and away the kindest domestic service professional musicians and their unique flying requirements-thank Y'all for being so kind!"
Pros: "Wine flys free is amazing!!!"
Pros: "Stewardess very helpful and welcoming."
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."
Pros: "Fast and friendly"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Lots of leg room!"
Pros: "The prices were decent and the personnel at the airport check in counter were friendly and helpful. The flight was short but it was nice to have the seat-back chargers to recharge my phone."
Cons: "The onboard crew seed a little stiff. They were very selective - the two flight attendants in first class & coach - with whom they greeted good morning / hello. I watched this from my seat in disappointment. I needed to ask for a seat extender as I'm currently recovering from surgery and needed a little room around the bandages and I had to ask several times even though there was not a lot of pre-flight activity. They were standing around in the aisle. I make note of this type of behavior because I fly frequently for work on a variety of airlines and this is my first experience with Alaska Air."
Pros: "I was checking in in a fluster and trying to attach my bag tags. A agent came over and helped me (for some reason I had taken the entire sticky back off ha!) and then he took my bag for me right from the kiosk. I was super impressed"
Pros: "Liked the self-print station for bag tags and the flight crew was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The boarding was not good;they delayed the flight, then returned it to our original time without changing the flight board. Then they stopped us in the middle of boarding to say there was a problem with the plane without giving an estimate of how long. We got to board again 10 minutes later."
Cons: "No complaints:)"
Pros: "On time, no delays"
Pros: "I arrived early"

Pros: "The TV"
Cons: "Food was blah, not hot and watery"
Pros: "Crew ok . Seat not so comfy"
Cons: "The boarding process at LAX was awful. I’m sure the horrible shuttle wait and transfer from terminal to terminal is the airport’s fault, but the airline did not do anywhere near enough to inform passengers of what was in store. It was confusing and annoying."
Pros: "best meal ive had in so long service was great the captain anniuncements were clear and detailed"
Pros: "súper comfy and got a seat upgrade due to my status so i looove delta. always on time and super friendly staff awesome.!!!"

Cons: "They lost my suitcase. Now I have to wait a day or two and they won’t sent it to me."
Pros: "We boarded close to on time, no hassles. Allowed my husband and me (retired military) to board early, thank you."
Cons: "LAX security is awful. We never left the airport (arrived LAX from Sydney AU) yet were forced thru security again. Had to remove shoes, was scanned and "frisked" by TSA to get to Denver. To go to Australia, Denver TSA waived the removal of shoes, skipped the scan for the metal detector and no one touched me, ditto for LAX on the trip to Sydney. Where's the uniformity or standards for TSA?? Why did I have to be subjected to this garbage on the way home?? This is why I despise flying. It makes no sense to me. This ruined what was a great vacation."
Pros: "I did not like nothing"
Cons: "Custom took for ever they only had 2 agents working and I Missed my fight to nyc"
Pros: "Easy, fast boarding. We arrived early too."
Pros: "Flight was on time; captain was clear and funny."

Pros: "Fast and comfortable"

Pros: "I always have a great experience on Delta! Thank you"
Pros: "crew was very respectful and kind"
Cons: "Flight was moved to a different gate, then delayed. We were given the absolute last seat in the plane that could not recline- not the seats I had selected before hand."
Pros: "Attendants were cheerful and extremely courteous."
Cons: "Legroom but that's because we can't afford 1st class. Hahahaha"
Pros: "Airplane was good, boarding was fast."
Cons: "Did not have the fruit and cheese plate."
Pros: "Airtravel is not exactly something to 'LIKE' but it was good."
Cons: "Attendant was a bit forgetful, didn't get my or my daughters drinks straight. She took forever to take the order too and was using a phone or something to type the order in and STILL got it wrong!"

Cons: "Need more legroom"
Cons: "See above airport connection disaster...."
Pros: "What they offer is OK."
Pros: "Pilot was hot."
Cons: "4 hour maintenance delay. Arrived at 2 am, after boarding a different plane."
Pros: "Arrived on time"
Cons: "No food. Only snacks and very good snacks"
Pros: "Again, despite poor flight schedule I made it on my connecting flight and it all worked out in the end."
Cons: "Again, Kayak should allow at least 2 hours of transfer time when booking flights through LAX. I had to go from one terminal to another AND go through immigration and security. In order to make sure I had enough time to make the connecting flight, I didn't check in my luggage which lead to me having to minimize liquids and pastes in my luggage (no vanilla extract or tequila). Also while making the transfer I felt rushed and stressed out. I might search for tickets using Kayak but I would not buy tickets directly from Kayak if my route involves a transfer at an airport that I am not familiar with."
Cons: "Reasonable price"
Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See abo e"
Cons: "Seating is too crowded"
Cons: "Small plane don't do well with turbulence"
Pros: "I liked that I had a vacant seat next to me."
Cons: "Small, narrow seats and way too cramped. Absolutely no leg room or much space to the seat in front. Terrible for a long haul international flight compared to other airlines. No free alcohol on an international flight!"
Pros: "Crew, seats, experience;?all were wonderful!"
Cons: "More flights to/from Portland"
Pros: "Flight was fine"
Cons: "3 hour delay sucked."
Pros: "The crew was generally nice to me and my emotional support animal (dog). The people checking in my bag were friendly."
Cons: "If you are traveling with an emotional support/service animal-make sure to include the breed and approximate weight of the animal in the "additional details" on the online form you have to fill out. They don't ask those questions but then need it to process the request. Call times are 90+ mins."
Cons: "Other than back to back late flights it couldn’t get any better."
Pros: "The crew was pleasent and brought me an OJ when I requested even though they had finished serving."
Cons: "There is ZERO leg room! I am not tall, I maybe had 2 inches to the seat in front us. The recline is a joke, not even 2 inches. Cannot reach bag under the seat due to no room!!"
Pros: "There was no food or entertainment, but that wasn't expected. Why can't we put NA for those items in the ratings?"
Pros: "The pilot let us know what states we were flying over"
Cons: "It was hot in the airplane. Very little air was coming through the vents. There was no leg room and we were all cramped. It felt claustrophobic."
Cons: "Flight was delayed over an hour, then the pilot circled town for another half hour above portland, so we were 1.5 hours late for a 3 hour flight"
Cons: "My knees knocked into the sweet/ no legroom"
Pros: "Everything was easy."
Cons: "All the extra charges for luggage and seating. Total rip off! Not flying with Sun Coutry next trip. Very disappointed."
Pros: "Staff were nice"
Cons: "SunCountry has clearly moved into the cattle car airline category. Most uncomfortable flight I’ve had in a long time."
Pros: "Crew was excellent"
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable and small."
Cons: "Flight was severely delayed causing me to incur additional travel expenses and diminish the time at my destination with family. Additionally when I found other flights on multiple airlines that would help me keep my plans on track, Sun Country would not entertain any of it. Their response was they do not have partnerships with other airlines (a common practice when I have travelled, United, Delta, and the delay or cancellation is their fault) What kind of airline or company squanders such an opportunity to not only put its best foot forward, but doesn't work with their fellow business community."
Pros: "Plane was nice and magazines good. Crew was efficient and got beverages to us fast"
Cons: "Paying extra after purchasing ticket for seat “upgrade” , late boarding and man in front of me reclining seat into my lap . Keep bumping my reading material as I read. Aisle width also narrow. Was constantly bumped as people passed to get to bathroom"
Pros: "We enjoyed the entire experience"
Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "No snacks stingy on the drink and carry on baggage fee"
Cons: "Didn’t like paying $25 for each luggage. Didn’t assign our seats together. No entertainment, no complimentary snacks. Assigned seat belt faulty."
Cons: "the baby next to me"
Pros: "That I got to my destination safely and on time."
Cons: "There were two people working Sun Country desks so I almost missed my flight. Flight attendants were cranky. No food offered and I don't think they recycle. No blankets offered anymore and it was very cold. Worst thing - I jumped through all the hoops so my small bag could be carried on instead of checked, and I then had to pay $40 to carry on instead of the $25 to check."
Cons: "Baggage fee for carry on"
Pros: "Very smooth professional and affordable"
Cons: "Took over an hour in the baggage check line in MSP Not a smoothly run operation!"
Pros: "The plane wasn’t full so there was room to stretch out."
Cons: "The plane was 2 hours late in taking off - no problem for me but I’m sure there were others who may have missed connections or had relatives/friends inconvenienced by this delay."
Cons: "paid too much for this flight for how terrible it was. not even sure why i fill out these survey's, Sun Country doesn't do anything about my complaints or even send a follow up e-mail."
Pros: "Staff were great."
Cons: "Drink choices advertised were no longer available for either flight"
Pros: "The lack of free food."
Cons: "The name of the airplane. Next time they should give it a name like The Jolly Roger."

Pros: "Crew was great! It was a great price for a direct flight."
Cons: "Gate agent /check in agent appeared grumpy. A snack would have been nice."
Pros: "I reallly liked the comfort. Plenty of room in overheads even though the fight was full. Crew delivered right away and provided good service. Great comfort."
Cons: "No wi-if and too expensive for the quality of the video players. No healthy food choices."
Pros: "on-board entertainment option of hand-held device for movies and tv, though I didn't use that."
Cons: "I was sleeping so didn't have food/drink, can't comment on that aspect"
Pros: "I really appreciated the maturity of the flight attendants. They were extremely pleasant, poised, and helpful. Experienced. They made the flight most comfortable. The seats fit well and were not so cramped, like other airlines I've travelled on. Kudos to Sun Country for hiring older employees and making travel pleasant again. Greatly appreciated. As a result of this very good trip, I have recommended SunCountry to several people. Keep up the good work"
Pros: "Plane was prompt and on time. Crude was friendly and accommodating of snack requests. Overall a nice experience."
Cons: "Price could always be better but this was a pretty good deal so this isn't really an issue."
Pros: "Overall it was mostly a good experience."
Cons: "We were skipped for a drink refill and it's always annoying to have a cup with mostly ice."
Pros: "Mostly on-time. I got TSA pre-checked, no hassle with the shoes & little bottles of liquid. I swapped seats with an unfilled seat, giving more room to the family originally beside me & myself as well."
Cons: "No Diet Dr. Pepper in Terminal 2 (Hubert Humphrey) airport"
Pros: "Smooth flight, early arrival despite a late departure."
Cons: "No peanuts? :)"
Pros: "Things were on schedule for the flight so got to my destination on time."
Pros: "I like the customer service and the refills on the drinks. Threat was the best."
Pros: "My husband and I got to sit together/ everything was on time/ everyone was polite"
Pros: "Overall, everything was fine. Can't rate food, crew, entertainment because I didn't use them. You really should have N/A ratings so I didn't have to rate them all 1 star."
Pros: "Liked that it was direct flight"
Cons: "Made reservationn on February for flight in June. No seat assignment until I approached boarding area and attendant took my boarding pass and said i would be assigned seat. I was asigned seat and was able to board in advance of geneal boarding but I don't understand why seats are not able to be chosen when reservations are made that far in advance. Price of adult beverage higher than other airline I frequently use."
Pros: "excellent flight--On time."
Pros: "1st class is solid....warm cookie...yum! Great service!"
Pros: "Width of seats and the leg room."
Pros: "I was running late and they accommodated to me. I didn't get food or use the entertainment on the flight so that is why they are ones."
Pros: "I seriously really like your crew."
Pros: "The crew was very responsive, attentive and kind. The pilot kept us informed as things caused delays. I lucked out and got a seat that was close to the front of the plane, even though it was in the middle. I was expecting to have no free beverages including water and thought there might not be food service at all, but there was. I got a good price for round-trip, non-stop flight."
Cons: "The check-in process was anxiety producing. I'm used to getting an email reminding me to check-in. When I checked in online I went all the through the process including picking a seat and paying for one bag. At the end it told me there was an error and I was not checked in and would have to check in at the airport. When I called the airline the person was informed and helpful. However, I learned that i should arrive 2 hours before my departure time and that the check-in desk would close 45 min before the flight and I would then not be allowed to board if I had not checked in (even if I was standing in line waiting). It was alarming that I learned this accidentally. Finally the flight took off late and there were many empty seats, but the crew did not inform us of that."
Pros: "Comfortable seats with lots of leg room and friendly flight attendants"
Pros: "Non stop flight Nice crew Good pilots"
Cons: "No Wifi No place to plug any devices in."
Cons: "The boarding process"

Pros: "Having our own device"
Cons: "I kind of miss watching movies on the seat in front of me option instead of just having our own mobile device.. wish the outlet were more reachable and easy to get to."
Cons: "There are hard to reach outlets and no ports to charge a device without a box. Also, no monitors."
Cons: "The boarding process was chaotic and the plane attempted to land once, got about 100 feet from the ground and had to pull up. So we basically landed twice."
Cons: "On time departures"
Pros: "The help"
Pros: "Boarding, service, staff attitudes, on time and deplaning"
Cons: "Early boarding in sfo, I had to forget my food."
Cons: "My baggage was lost."

Cons: "Lack of space and organization"
Pros: "the warm baked goods when we landed"
Cons: "not so much leg space"
Pros: "The direct TV was free on this leg of my trip"
Pros: "The check in staff which was the same boarding staff was below average there was 3 agents who very poor, poor in attitude, poor in problem solving, wished at that moment I had booked on another airline."
Cons: "I thought it was ANA but it was United."
Cons: "The gate was so far away. And the AC wasn't working in their terminal"
Cons: "Food was not good"
Cons: "Easy for check-in and on time"
Pros: "Excellent as expected."
Pros: "The timing."
Cons: "The landing was a little rough."
Pros: "Easy to print ticket, United employees readily available."
Pros: "The stewards were awesome. Funny kind and attentive"
Pros: "The plane."
Cons: "Travelling with a nine week old: no add on seatbelt (as per QANTAS) for lap sleeping, paid for an extra seat we didn't realize we were buying. The food has not improved in the last decade in contrast to other airlines."
Pros: "Everything was fine"
Cons: "Everything. Delays were inexcusable, staff ridiculously unfriendly and just bad attitudes all round. Very unpleasant experience, won't be using this airline ever again."
Cons: "Did not have enough good snacks"
Pros: "Perfect service"
Pros: "They did not care"
Pros: "Price was nice at $142"
Pros: "They were friendly no matter where you were seated. Always had smiles"
Cons: "All was good. No dislikes"
Cons: "My 3rd old was very hungry and I reached out to cabin staff for any kind of food for purchase, they turned me down saying I need to wait for another hour till the dinner time. Did not provide any help there."
Cons: "the airplane is really old! Don't have any amenities."
Cons: "No room in the seating, nor in the overhead."
Pros: "Staff was nice and chairs were comfortable"
Pros: "It's always a mess. SFO should put more chairs on the main level at international boarding and have people sit up there until their boarding class is called. it's simply too tight at the actual gate to have everyone clamorous to get on the plane"
Cons: "Flying in general just sucks unless you're in business class."
Pros: "They got me here."
Cons: "Comfort, crew, entertainment, etc"
Cons: "Yea the tsa precheck was not being able to put on my boarding pass. Hooked me again ."
Cons: "Took almost two days to get from Chicago to Portland"
Cons: "Awful awful awful"
Cons: "the seats don't recline. there is no inflight entertainment. they additionally charge for seats and to carry on a bag."
Cons: "No where in my confirmation emails from kayak or frontier was there mention that 45 minutes before boarding I forfeit my ticket if I didn't already check in. I had no luggage to check and the line to security was non existent, but frontier had no one at their check ins and the auto check ins wouldn't print my boarding pass. I would have absolutely made my flight with ease, but no one answered the 800 number and no one around or that could be called could help me print my boarding pass. For 45 minutes I asked anyone and everyone I could for help. Not only did I miss my best friend' father's funeral, but frontier will not contact me back to refund the ticket that I paid for but was not permitted to use. NEVER fly with them, it's worth the extra money to fly with someone half respectable"
Pros: "The flight attendants we're very friendly. They actually took a lot of abuse from a few not so nice people."
Cons: "I paid extra to be able to pick a seat. When I checked in, they had moved me. What did I pay for? Also you have to pay extra for things that I think should be standard. Such as reclining seats and enough space to open your laptop."
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "No entertainment options, 3 bucks for a coke?"
Pros: "Changing the gate within 24 hrs is not acceotable!"
Pros: "We were amazed by the initial cost of $120 round trip ticket"
Cons: "The dates of our event changed, so we needed to adjust our original booking. The change cost $100 per ticket to change, and additional fees on top of that. We have taken on all of the extra fees for the change, and now there will be bag fees and whatever else we run into on the day of travel. We accept the fact that some fees are normal for change of itinerary, but it feels like we are getting nickel and dimed right now. This is what we were warned about from friends when we initially booked our "great rate"!"
Cons: "The seats are very uncomfortable and don't recline."
Cons: "Late and cramped"
Pros: "Only the price originally"
Cons: "That you get charged for your seat after you bought the ticket. The crew was pushy and rude when speaking to the customer as we got on the plane twice I was asleep and i stead of asking me to move my arm since I was on the aisle seat they just ran into me with the cart"
Pros: "Sat on the wing, legroom"
Cons: "That I wasn't able to go home for 3 more days."
Cons: "Departed over an hour late"
Cons: "Over an hour late getting in to Denver. Waited for 30 minutes for make bag as well"
Pros: "see above lucked out w free seat between on this leg"
Cons: "see above"
Pros: "The flight crew was fine, but they had little to do since the refreshments are all for purchase only!"
Cons: "A simple round trip from Portland OR to Denver CO turned into a nightmare. First flight was delayed 9 hours, return flight delayed 2 hours - both for "mechanical issues." And Frontier is certainly no bargain once you add separate charges for seats and both carry-on and checked baggage. Never Frontier again!"
Pros: "Crew tried to make the best of things."
Cons: "Delays seem to be really common and passengers all grumpy."
Cons: "flights were more than 2 hours delayed without any explanation."
Pros: "The crew was great and the plane was clean."
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic and late. There were delays in the flights without any offer to help calculate when we'd be arriving at our destination nor any attempt to make it right (like with a small token such as a free food/drink item). You guys lost my luggage - the delays in all led to a 3.5 hour delay in me seeing my kids, who were staying up late to see me after I was gone for a week. Being inexpensive is laudable only if you provide equivalent service - my impression after this flight is its inexpensive and I got what I paid for...unless there is some overture to win back my business, I'll not fly Fronteir again and will be suggesting my friends and colleagues not either."
Pros: "One hour late."
Cons: "My wife's bag was soaked through by a spill on the previous leg under the seat. We sent pics and the airline acklowedged the problem but, failed to remedy the issue. Bag either needs to be professionally cleaned or replaced. Their final remedy was to refund our carry on fee and a $25 voucher toward future travel. The bag cost $246."
Pros: "Not much of anything"
Cons: "Add on pricing is outrageous"
Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Plenty of overhead space available. Just enough legroom. A good economy airline."
Cons: "Well first our flight got delayed an hour and a half and then delayed another couple hours and then finally the flight was flat out cancelled till the next day which made us obviously miss our flight to portland that night and we had emergency prior engagements that we missed and a whole weekend we paid for that is now missed because we won't be getting to Portland until practically two days later assuming everything goes perfectly today. ( currently sitting in Sioux Falls airport) and frontier wouldn't do anything to compensate the loss except for a 200 future flight vouture to be used within 90 days. (Like anyone would want to fly frontier after this experience)"
Pros: "Flying through the air"
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"
Cons: "Delayed by half an hour without clear reasons"
Cons: "Delayed flight....not cool"
Pros: "They gave me a $10 voucher to compensate for the delay. It went towards the grossest McDonalds hamburger I've ever eaten. The fries were ok."
Cons: "The multiple delays. SIX HOURS LATE."
Cons: "Sat on the tarmac at 11:30 at night because a plane(maybe the only one in the airport!) was in the gate we needed(?) to use! Come on...rent another one!"
Cons: "I felt nickeled and dimed by this airline. I've never paid for carry on bags before, and I felt there was a lack of transparency in regard to all the costs that add up to several hundred dollars."
Cons: "Even carryon luggage was expensive."
Pros: "schedule, and price,Z(I thought) until extra charge for everything!!!"
Cons: "Frontier has become a farce. Always enjoyed frontier but they become a bare bones operation.... Extra charge for everything. Why not just post the true fare and not suck people into thinking they are getting a bargain!!!! If one has a problem there are no employees to get help from. Too many cut backs and you end up paying more than anticipated"
Cons: "Delayed and stuck away from gate due to maintenance issue"
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Pros: "Good service & friendly."
Cons: "Arrived early but sat on the plane for 20 minutes."
Pros: "Newish Airbus nice to see"
Cons: "Carry on $ threats, Seating discomfort and drink pushing NOT cool"
Pros: "It was early"
Cons: "Too crammed in. No tvs anymore"
Cons: "$60 fee for carry on is ridiculous"
Cons: "It never happened."
Cons: "Extra 40.00 for a carry on.... Buyer beware"
Cons: "Plane was late"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Prices of beverage and snacks"
Cons: "The extra $100+ to bring one small bag and have a seat. Especially when advertised as $40 one way. Cost $350 round trip in the end."
