There were no employees checking baggage until 4:30am despite there being several 6am flights. There were people truly worried as I was that I would miss my flight. They should’ve had employees working earlier to accommodate to their schedules.
Delayed departure due to short staffed security at Burlington Airport. Missed connection flight. Terrible customer service at Delta. 7 hour travel day turned into a 24 hour travel day.
Pros: "Absolutely ridiculous ... sat on the runway longer than the flight."
Cons: "Reason we sat on the runway longer than the flight is they were understaffed. Unacceptable."
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Cons: "Check in was terrible- long wait just for drop off of already checked in bags"
Cons: "Boarding process was really poor. Long line for just dropping a bag off that I already paid for."
Cons: "Can't tell how the flight was because missed connecting flight from LAX to SJC because Westjet from YYZ to LAX had a mechanical issue. They end up replacing a tire which caused a 1.5 hr flight delay"
Pros: "Crew did a great job. Pilot was very informative. Great job working with what they have."
Cons: "My feet were absolutely freezing. I sat 4D (and paid for first class tickets but somehow delta didn’t even give me comfort plus for this flight). Plane is tiny. I’m 6’2” 205 lbs and I barely fit in the seat. This is a regional flight (even though it’s 2 hrs) so service is very minimal."
Cons: "First class almost always guarantees a much better experience!"
Pros: "Everything was amazing"
Pros: "Crew was wonderful! Food was good. It was a good experience."
Cons: "This whole paying for comfort seats is annoying. Just make all the seats decent for all travelers."
Cons: "The gate was changed but it was not updated to the app. Many of us were waiting in the wrong gate until 10 mins before departure."
Pros: "Boarding was fast"
Cons: "The seats were incredibly uncomfortable. This was a Comfort + seat. Very hard, unbearable for an overnight flight."
Pros: "Emergency exit window seat"
Cons: "Punctuality 7hrs delays over 2 flights is unacceptable Ruined the first day of my trip"
Cons: "Upgraded to comfort, I’ve never sat in a better seat. The crew was all very polite, informative and friendly. Quick and easy flight. Thank you!!"
Pros: "The gate agents were nice enough."
Cons: "We sat on the tarmac for an hour without information as to why we were delayed. We missed our connection in Atlanta, even though we arrived at the gate in time to see the gate agent shut the door while we were running and waving. We arrived at the gate 8 minutes before the flight departure time also. The flight attendant on the flight from Fayetteville just handed out water and cookies without asking what you wanted. She had coffee and snack mix but didn’t ask anyone, just handed them what they got. Overall I was very disappointed in the flight from Fayetteville, NC to Atlanta and with the gate agents at the Atlanta airport. I usually expect more from delta. They didn’t offer vouchers to make up for the missed connection or offer to pay for a hotel since the next flight out was the next morning."
Pros: "Delta is always fabulous! Their crew is so helpful!"
Pros: "I was rerouted through Detroit after it was apparent I would miss my connecting flight. The flight was good and I have no complaints."
Pros: "Typical Delta efficiency and comfort."
Pros: "I have never seen a gate attendant call each person by name as she scanned their boarding passes! At Delta I felt welcomed by every employee. Even the pilots greeted the passengers as they exited. All the other airlines just want my money, they want to cram me into smaller and smaller spaces and want me to sit there and shut up so they don't have to interact with me. I will fly Delta every chance I get, even if I have to pay more money."
Pros: "Best part, no one sat in the seats next to me so I got to lay down and sleep. Staff was nice, food was fine."
Cons: "This flight was good"
Pros: "The crew was awesome and helped out tremendously when anything was needed!"
Cons: "My lodge was damage and broken adn was new"
Pros: "On time departure/arrival despite weather in Atlanta. Always a fan of free messaging and choice of snacks."
Cons: "Delta needs to invest in their gate area at ORD. Understand it’s not a hub but it’s a key business/leisure destination. The MD-80s are ok for a short hop but over 1 hour unless you’re in Comfort+, it’s tight."
Pros: "The quickness of boarding n the crew"
Cons: "the landin n small seats"
Pros: "Great crew on board!"
Pros: "It's a rather short flight. We grabbed 12A and 12B (should've gone for 10A and 10B when the choice was there) as knees started to hurt. Fine SLC lounge one is fine (mac-and-cheese, chicken, Baileys behind the bar, etc.) to make you happy prior to departure."
Cons: "No food, snacks are okay though so this is a wash considering it was a short flight. Sky priority bagging ... doesn't matter. We saw several other bags get unloaded along with ours. No Delta lounge at the destination (RNO)"
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "No entertainment on flight. No smoking in Minneapolis airport"
Pros: "Flight was on time with enough connection time to board with zero issues"
Cons: "No problems on this trip"
Cons: "Delayed, gate agent trying to rebook not super helpful"
Pros: "Crew was nice, the snack was pretty good. Good air conditioning."
Cons: "Didn’t turn off overhead light. It’s usually off most of the flight."
Pros: "1. Smooth flight itself and informed by captain well on expected time of arrival with frequent updates"
Cons: "1. I already had a tight connection and let the flight attendant know that I was concerned due to the delay. She seemed very laissez faire and there was no information about the connections gate overhead or when I got off the plane. I think that if the flight is delayed, the airline should let passengers know where the close connection gate assignments are to save them time (my flight landed ten minutes after my connection was boarding). 2. The carry on luggage section was impossibly small so I had to gatecheck my bag and it took five minutes to get my bag back. Given the tight connection, this created additional anxiety."
Cons: "The customer service was horrible! I specifically paid more to be able to pick seats and sit next to my husband apparently for nothing."
Pros: "The gate agent and cabin crew handled passenger's misery with friendly grace and professionalism. Also, it was an old plane and so the seats, even in coach, were comfortable."
Cons: "Plane was around 45 minutes late in arriving at our Minneapolis gate. Flight was further delayed by something (unspecified) being "frozen." WORST part was that the temperature in the seating area at the gate was horribly cold. Departing passengers at a neighboring gate were bound for Fargo and sat with their parkas on and with parka hoods up. We Houston-bound had packed our coats & boots and were shivering. Then when we finally boarded the crew announced that the plane's water system was broken and so we would have no hot coffee or hot tea or hot anything. No water, also and obviously, in the restroom sink. But sani-wipes were provided in the sink basin."
Cons: "The prices of the available snacks."
Pros: "Excellent Detroit crew"
Cons: "Delayed by 3 hours"
Pros: "Late delay notification"
Cons: "Called the airline directly to verify the status of flight within 24hrs and everything was on schedule according to them. Even tho the airport at San Juan have not night arrivals due to the effects of Hurricane Maria, and on previous days the same flight had been moved to a morning schedule for that reason. I was notified of the delay within hours of departure of the connecting flight."
Pros: "Boarding was good, crew was friendly and we were on time."
Pros: "It's Delta, so I got miles."
Cons: "Cramped seats, no food. It's not what you'd expect from Delta. Exit row doesn't help, and forget the bulkhead if you're over 5ft 8in"
Cons: "The poorly staffed bag check at BTV was maddening. We waited in line for what felt like 15 or more minutes. Boarding was also badly managed and took 20 minutes or so. There was no jetway so passengers had to walk a distance to the plane. The attendants all seemed to be having a bad morning. Not terribly friendly."
Pros: "Food was not offered on a short flight, the one star does not mean bad. There was no other option same for entertainment"
Pros: "Wonderful flight attendants"
Pros: "Crew and ground staff were excellent"
Cons: "I hate the CRJ configuration- no business class and coach seats are far too close together, worse than many Asian airbus configurations."
Pros: "Good movie selection, nice crew"
Cons: "Terrible food, no veg options, no leg room, seats barely recline"
Cons: "The 2+ hour delay"
Cons: "6 hour delay"
Sat on the plane for hours only to Have the pilot time out and walk off the plane. Back up pilot showed up and the flight was canceled. No other flights to get me to My destination for 3 days. My luggage was still sent to my destination even though the flight was cancelled. Very bad experience with American Airline and I will do everything I can to never fly American Airlines again
Someone left a bag under the seat in front of me. It was from the previous flight. There was a kindle and a cell phone in it. There was also an empty coffee cup under the seat across the isle from me. I find it hard to believe that they are cleaning between each flight but missed these items.
Ground stop at ORD delayed our flight out of Burlington. Arrived ORD with a few minutes to spare. Sure would’ve been nice to know that our connecting flight had been delayed. Would’ve saved some stressful running from gate to gate. Otherwise: all good.
I spent money on extra leg room and as I’m boarding the switch my seat to a regular seat. Horrible scam to get extra money from passengers. Never flying this crap airline again.
Pros: "A very new Eagle plane. AA staff was good about updating us re: departure delays. Waited to inform us of gate valet plans until the last minute."
Cons: "BTV Airport is very small so prepare to be in crowded waiting areas."
Pros: "We got to our destination."
Cons: "Better social distancing standards. People are still getting sick even with the vaccine."
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "No water or snacks offered on either flight down. Flight delayed in Charlotte for 3 HOURS due to mechanical issue with first plane. No compensation for such a long delay."
Pros: "On time/ early arrival Careful about cleaning"
Pros: "Nice to fly again!"
Pros: "Attendant was very friendly. Really appreciated her energy"
Cons: "Drink service was not as good as other trips."
Cons: "Smooth flight left on time and arrived on time."
Pros: "Easy boarding."
Cons: "No usb charger. Flight delayed."
Pros: "The flight crew and the captain were terrific."
Cons: "Gate agents were rude. Everybody was forced to check-in their carry on luggage due to the small plane. This information should have been shared before boarding. We were informed as we were boarding and had to scramble to remove the laptop from our carry-on and help up passengers behind us from boarding. A totally unnecessary stressful situation created by the gate agents for failing to share information. Once we got onboard we saw carry-ons larger then what we were forced to check-in. Evidently, enforcement of standards is at the gate agents' discretion."
Pros: "Comfortable seats with plenty of legroom."
Cons: "The counter agent charged us for one bag when it should have been free. According to her, there was nothing she could do as that's what the computer stated. She did mention we have a receipt so we can ask for a refund. Why was she even there?? Could have done the same with a kiosk."
Pros: "The seat is uncomfortable"
Pros: "some what and it could be better"
Cons: "the help you get from the crew and if they wouldn't make so many gate changes"
Pros: "Quick flight good crew"
Cons: "More entertainment and snack selection"
Pros: "Woman at ticket counter was great. Was traveling with 2 kids and she moved our seats closer to the front"
Cons: "Crew was rude, and we had to wait an hour to leave, I understand things happen, but then we were rerouted mid flight so it was inconvenient and again I get it, things happen. But the landing was incredibly rough and the pilot didn’t apologize. That would have made things better, but he said nothing about being sorry we were delayed and nothing about the rough landing."
Pros: "early flight. Smooth. Good landing. Friendly folks."
Cons: "No WIFI. Sat on Tarmac for 15 minutes upon arrival. No fault of anyone though."
Cons: "I went to the airport. I was told a 3hr delay. I only live 10 mins to the airport. So I went back home to only receive a notification that the flight has departed after 45 mins. I am now stuck here since that was the last flight back. The earliest flight available is next day at 12pm which means I am going to miss work and I have been on hold with AA customer service exactly for 3 hrs now and still holding."
Pros: "The crew was wonderful of the flight was fine!"
Cons: "Arriving 2 hours before my flight I had a hard time getting through security because of my handicap situation, I arrived at the gate as the plane was leaving the gate, whie American Airlines where able to get me on the next flight, the flight was 3 hours after my original flight! JW"
Pros: "seats are very uncomfortable I know they can make a plane with a wide enough aisle so that you don't get hit in the arm every time the cart or anyone goes past you. why can I ride a twin otter and not need a seat belt extender and need one on American? On the return on the Airbus, the seats were a little more comfortable, but still need seatbelt extender."
Pros: "Flights to Reno tend to be empty if you fly in the right time of the week. I booked the cheapest ticket and ended up getting an exit row all to myself."
Cons: "There is no seatback TV which is a major drawback. They do have a service that you can stream through your personal device but my power outlet didn’t work so my laptop died mid movie."
Pros: "Flight was fast and comfortable."
Pros: "strategic boarding to avoid standing in the cold"
Cons: "WASNT ENOUGH ROOM FOR CARRY ONS"
Cons: "I purchased a flight two weeks ago to depart at 11am from lax I checked in at 10:30 where they told me It was too late for me to check in they gave me another flight departing at 4pm (free of charge) weird right? Very disappointed since I always fly and check in 30 minutes before. I didn’t have any luggage with me either I do not think it’s fair and I will not be flying American Airlines/Alaskan airlines ever again."
Pros: "Not a single part has a positive remark"
Cons: "Well - this partner of westjet was terrible. The amount of re direction to get to the final terminal was absurd .. that's just my venting My real problem is that then "crew" or team that represent s the American Airlines / compass part was just useless. A hand full of people - myself included didn't get a chance to board the plane as they didn't make any announcements. Beyond disappointing. When you check in they take your cell phone "in case " well no call no txt no nothing. It was a joke the level of service No apologies or anything just a group of any tired patrons getting the worst customer experience. I'll never EVER book a flight that has anything to do with American Airlines or its partners"
Pros: "There was an extra seat and they allowed me to move there. Superb entertainment!!"
Cons: "They guy behind me kept kicking my chair"
Pros: "I enjoyed the customer service, the nice landing and the pilots recognition that too many announcements on night time flights is unwanted."
Cons: "I was on the plane for 50 minutes before we departed. I was in group 6. The people before my group waited even longer. I also don't like Americans stand alone terminal at LAX; there's no vendors or services there."
Pros: "Flight attendants were courteous and hardworking. Made sure all passengers were taken care of."
Pros: "The crew was phenomenal!"
Cons: "The PA system was not working in the terminal, so crew member had to yell for passengers to hear her while calling out the groups to board."
Pros: "Was able to get my flight transferred!"
Cons: "I liked Everything!"
Pros: "The flight attendants were great."
Cons: "The flight was over an hour delayed. that meant I arrived home at 1am. That is a very rough morning."
Cons: "Fight was operated by American. Alaska forced to wait in line and see assistance, then inform that because the flight is operated by American, they won't be able to check me in. Had to walk to a different terminal of LAX wait in 2 more lines and by the time they were able to assist it was too late to check in. Missed the flight, have to rebook a 3 hour later departure, move the meeting and take a flight back 4 hours later that has a layover and adds about 2.5 hours more on the return leg. Not to mention having to pay for the new seat."
Pros: "Fast boarding. Arrived earlier. Nice plane, very clean."
Pros: "Overall, one of the most enjoyable International flight experiences I have ever had."
Pros: "In flight entertainment was good. The Founder and Creed are great movies."
Cons: "It's an old plane and almost nothing works. The food was not great. The crew was horrible. It sounded like the pilot was drunk. The crew treated us like we were a burden. They spent the entire time bothered and ripping on the passengers."
Pros: "Grest staff"
Cons: "Thought the first row seating would provide extra leg room which the reservation page said it would and we paid extra for the seats - not so. it also felt quite claustrophobic with a panel within a short distance of our faces. We had upgraded for better seats but it turns out the seating wasn't better at all. The flight home in seats much further back were MUCH more comfortable. I'm thinking the airline shouldn't book the front seats by the panel as 'better' for the extra price as they were definitely not."
Pros: "I flew coach for the first time in a year, and I was shocked at how poor the service was. Additionally, the aircraft was not maintained: broken sinks in the bathroom / most of the video entertainment was broken in Premium Economy Class. I had to cross the Atlantic for 9 hours with no movies to distract me. I'm shocked that the business class crew still treat coach passengers with disrespect as if they are second class citizens."
Pros: "Again, it seemed to me there was more legroom in first class than on similar Delta flights - meaning it was more comfortable. Also, there was a delay of a couple of hours leaving Dallas due to a problem with the plane's radio, and the American employees handled it very well, keeping the passengers informed and smoothly transferring everyone to a substitute plane."
Pros: "Quick flight. but my row and some others behind us did not get beverage service. Never had that happen before."
Pros: "Ontime boarding and helpful friendly crew,"
Cons: "Seats have no lower back support and are crowded entertainment does not support many android devices especially kindle"
Cons: "small plane so tight seating. Outdoor climbing of stairs to board om the tarmac."
Cons: "Had a passenger behind us that was coughing the whole flight with what we think was a cold and now we are both sick with colds."
Pros: "Im still waiting to get on a plane..."
Cons: "Since TSA took so long I missed my flight by 5 minutes. Then I was put on standby. Ive been at the denver airport for 10 hours and the plane i was going to get on has mechanical problems so the flight is pushed back until 7am tomorrow. Ill have been at the denver airport for 26 hours and then i have to wait on standby again in Dallas. Who knows when I'll actually get home. American airlines is not even offeri6mg any vouchers or anything. Worst flight ever."
Cons: "We waited in the plane at the gate for over two and a half hours after scheduled departure time. I understand that things happen and illnesses are sometimes sprung upon us but that wasn't the issue. The issue was that there was not a backup in place for an instance like this. I understand the time of night was the main issue but planes are flying 24/7."
Super old plane. Needs updating badly. Great crew. First class experience seriously lacking these days- a whole can of ginger ale and crackers? Disappointing.
We were late getting to our connecting flight. The flight crew was immensely helpful in getting us on the plan and on our way home.
Pros: "good crew. plane was showing of wear. torn pockets and worn out seats."
Cons: "newer aircraft or refurbished one."
Cons: "Flight personnel seem like they dont enjoy their job."
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "More comfortable and spacious seating, more reasonable priced food for the quality you get"
Cons: "The delays, gate changes in a massive airport, and general lack of information made this trip excruciating."
Cons: "No room in the seats at all"
Pros: "The crew was typical, the seat was on the aisle, which I prefer, but kind of in the way and I kept hitting my head."
Cons: "The snacks are not good at all, next time I'll take my own. They should just quit serving them and charging us for them."
Pros: "The flight was excellent. My luggage dding"
Cons: "Having my luggage."
Pros: "Flight was ok the first flight from Btv to IAd was not great the plane made a lot of noise during takeoff and landing sounded like the ceiling panels were going too fall off as well as other noises"
Cons: "Lots of noises crew were good . Price of luggage was outrageous"
Pros: "Felt like the pilot was experienced and skilled because It was very smooth in departing and landing."
Cons: "There was a lady sitting on my assigned seat. She said flight attendance told her that is ok to do. I wouldn't mind if she or staff asked me with legitimate reasons. It happened at mt last trip; ending up sitting next to big person instead of sitting with my 12 year old daughter."
Cons: "Our flight was “delayed” 12 hours! Notably not cancelled and rebooked because then they would have to compensate us, I believe"
Pros: "Never made connection since first flight was deplaned"
Cons: "Never made it"
Pros: "The wafer caramel cookies were great but no substitute for an actual breakfast."
Cons: "You have to pay an insane rate for the Wifi. Access to United.com and the United app weren't available so checking on connections was impossible."
Pros: "Flight was on time and I received my checked baggage."
Cons: "Seat was uncomfortable due to insufficient foot space. All (about 6) overhead bins in the rear of the aircraft were full because crew stored “essential equipment” in them. Crew was not professional. After takeoff they never came around to see if anyone needed anything and not even a glass of water was offered for the entire flight. They didn’t even ensure that everyone wore seatbelts on landing - woman next to me was stretched out hugging her companion while landing wilth unbuckled seatbelt. Entertainment screen did not wirk properly."
Pros: "The person at the United customer service desk was able to book me on the next available flight to Reno (after missing my original flight mentioned above) quickly and efficiently. Boarding was fast."
Cons: "I was late to my original flight and the United personal that I talked to at the gate was very rude. I asked if the plane was still boarding and all she said was go to customer service. I know I gave her a questioning look because this did not answer my original question. She repeated her statement again this time pointing. I would have preferred that she tell me that the flight had finished boarding but customer service could help me get on another flight. I feel that would have been more professional. My new flight was also an hour late"
Pros: "Boarding seemed efficient"
Cons: "In flight entertainment didn't work"
Pros: "The plane did not crash"
Cons: "Customer service, being nickel and dimed, the staff told me if I don't like it to fly Jet Blue"
Pros: "Good cabin & flight crew; kept us informed."
Cons: "Ran late. Seats are time (I'm average weight & height). Windows couldn't have been lower or we'd have been looking at the gear."
Cons: "Poor communication and terrible management of bad situations."
Pros: "At least they made an effort and it was finally resolved."
Cons: "Fact that the plane was not checked properly and was about to take off and go back to the gate."
Pros: "Assigned seat - delayed because of hot breaks but stayed on tarmac to cool while cooled only about 10 min."
Cons: "Airline stewardess should have suggested mom with young child in lap could move to empty row of seats."
Cons: "Didn't take the plane!"
Pros: "OK service, hard landing"
Cons: "Scheduled times were kept"
Cons: "It was delayed a few minutes"
Pros: "Nothing positive to say about United Airlines"
Cons: "Everything was terrible"
Pros: "Wife is legally blind and asked for help deboarding plane. Flight attendant refused. A passenger in front of her helped her. This is terrible service."
Cons: "Service,and checking .. most people at ticket counter"
Pros: "The crew on every leg of the flight was very professional. Having one TSA entry point for eight gates at Brulington really slows things down, I realize this has nothing to do with United though."
Cons: "I wish instead of me when I missed my flight due to TSA that United themselves would have tried to get me out on another flight that same day. They assumed I wanted only one stop, when in fact it didn't matter to me so long as I wasn't stuck another overnight. I used Kayak in the terminal to discover a different flight that same day and was lucky to get on as each flight was fully booked."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful. The flight arrived much earlier than scheduled."
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Aircraft interior is dated."
Pros: "Flight left on time and arrived early"
Pros: "Friendly flight attendants Help luggage personel"
Pros: "seats aren't so cramped."
Cons: "too cold. could have a few blankets on hand.."
Pros: "Good service, quick flight, food/entertainment N/A"
Cons: "Checked my carry on even though there were many open overhead bins and I explained we only had an hour layover in Dulles"
Pros: "Quick easy no delays"
Cons: "Purchased tickets 4 months before this flight for a departure time of 6:05pm. Tried to check in and check baggage at 9:30am but was turned away saying I could only check in 3 hrs prior to my flight. Came back at 3:00pm to check-in and they could not find my information. An hour later they find out that they cancelled the flight and moved my departure time to 8:25am for that day. They say they emailed 3 times in May but I never got it (I'm a bit crazy about my email staying clean) so they say it might have went in to my spam folder due to they types of emails they send to customers. They only kept repeating that they notified me so there is nothing they could do. I ended up going to Air Canada to get a flight from PHX to RNO the next day. No apology, no help, no hotel for the night...Terrible experience by United. They gave me a customer relations group contact information to follow up with for complaint but since they sent me the 3 emails in May about the change, they have no liability to fix the situation."
Pros: "Smooth. No problems. Happy we didn't have to get suitcases through customs because you could handle in Canada. Happy gate was near where we got off."
Cons: "The flight was overbooked and asked for several volunteers to take later flights for travel credit. Ended up forcing those unlucky souls in the last boarding group off flight with no offer of credit or accommodation. Waited in customer service line for hours, literally longer than it would have taken to take off and arrive at my scheduled destination. United representatives could not find a flight that guaranteed a seat (not on a long standby list) that was even in the same 12 hour period. I spoke with a United supervisor who showed zero empathy or concern with the situation. In the end I arranged for other travel accommodations to drive to my family reunion destination. No refund was issued or offered. I was informed I would have to call United customer service after the date of my previously scheduled return flight to explain my situation. I will personally never fly United again and would recommend the same to anyone. Although for the record, I did receive a single ten dollar airport food voucher for my inconvenience. Inexcusable."
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "The whole arrangement going through Air Canada but flying United. I never got confirmation numbers from United at all. I had to call Air Canada to get confirmation codes for United. Getting confirmation codes from Air Canada had no real significance with United. United would not confirm seating. When United finally confirmed seating, the seats were not together. Then United changed the flight three times and never gave updated confirmation codes. The last change came the day before our departure. Then United charged another $138.00 for seats that were assigned and never informed us. I am still trying to get the $138.00 back."
Cons: "No snack or entertainment."
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!"
Cons: "United had 3 gate changes. Ok sometimes that happens. This was said due to a storm out of colorado"
Pros: "Flight was boarded efficiently. Left the gate on time and got in early."
Cons: "Maintenance delays and rerouting caused me to miss my reserved ground transit in LA... United claimed on the phone I would be reimbursed for a taxi, but changed their mind when I sent them a receipt a few days later."
Pros: "It was a quick flight"
Cons: "Crowded not a lot of room"
Pros: "the staff was friendly and helpful, boarding was fast"
Cons: "The plane was a bit dirty, crumbs on my seat for the first flight but overall, not bad. There was no entertainment other than their magazine provided, so that is not applicable."
Cons: "United made no accommodation for a late-arriving connecting flight. The United schedule required changing terminals and a race to the next gate -- then closed the doors five minutes early even though there were passengers sprinting from the other terminal to make their connection. They knew the connecting flight had been delayed; they should have waited five minutes to let us on. The result was a nine-hour wait in Newark Airport for the next United flight."
Pros: "Friendly and efficient. All went as planned"
Three gate changes three flight time changes extra charges for everything. This is the first and last time I will fly this airline.
Frontier is not the way to go.
Our flight was cancelled Friday morning 4 hrs before our flight with no alternate way to get to Las Vegas for our show in time to see it. I will NEVER DO BUSINESS WITH FRONTIER AGAIN
Pros: "Made it through TSA without BS. No delays. I dont smoke anymore but mccarran has a smoke pit."
Cons: "All airlines should add legroom and fatbody room. I used to get a free carry on too, but even that you're nickel and diming. The price I payed up front should have covered both of those issues. That's the truth and everyone knows it."
Cons: "Was boarded 20 min late and then waited on plane for over a hr with no air. Was told waiting on pilots to arrive to DIA to then get on our flight. Air couldnt be turned on because of no pilots aboard. Crew was short and rude to many of the passengers. very uncomfortable seats not professional"
Cons: "The flight was delayed arriving to Burlington and then there was a problem in the baggage area that needed to be fixed. We were delayed over an hour leaving Burlington and then when we arrived in Orlando we sat on the tarmac for over an hour because, according to the crew, no gate was available for us"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Why did I have to pay so many fees"
Pros: "Terrible seats, very cramped, but clean"
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for over an hour, no explanation given. Further delay as we sat there after nearly everyone was boarded and people trickled on for probably 20-30 min. It seemed like they were just taking anyone on the flight that they could find wandering the airport. Conditions were cramped, miserable, seats uncomfortable."
Pros: "The staff was a well oiled machine! Very funny & accommodating. They were all very friendly & helpful to all of the passengers. Everything was clean & orderly."
Cons: "Delay due to windshield wiper breaking. Uncomfortable seats"
Cons: "As usual, Frontier charges for everything extra. Also, their seats don't recline, which is ok for a short flight like this one from Austin to Reno (CA. 3 hours.)"
Pros: "The seats were spacious."
Cons: "No snacks and drinks"
Pros: "People were nice"
Cons: "Cannot sleep sitting straight up."
Pros: "Do people write here for frontier?"
Cons: "Sat on the tarmac for over 3 hours. A fight broke loose and we had to return to the terminal and then back to the tarmac for more sitting. The crew finally figured out how uncomfortable and frustrated people were getting 2.5 hours to sitting with no air on the tarmac. They relieved their customers suffering then with complimentary water! Now that’s service. Frontier is one of the most base airlines out there. I’m entirely frustrated that they are one of the only airlines that service our podunk airport."
Pros: "Pdx is a great airport"
Cons: "Getting charged for EVERYTHING with frontier. Pretty classless company."
Pros: "Really great price for a flight"
Cons: "The seats are so close together! Also carryons are an extra $30+ and that’s ridiculous"
Pros: "Easy flight with good price."
Cons: "No one takes cash anymore! Have to pay for all snacks! Not alot of room for broad shoulders."
Pros: "Very efficient boarding. Although I thought it strange at first that Frontier charges for overhead storage, the storage situation was roomy even with a full flight."
Pros: "Smooth flight. Almost on time departure and arrived early."
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable. Ok for short flight but I would not fly on any flight over 2 hours."
Cons: "Very hot, uncomfortable cheap seats. No refreshment cart came by. And our flight was delayed a couple hours which didn't help either"
Cons: "The flight attendants were unbelievably nasty. I am working on a formal note to the company."
Cons: "On my way to Vegas they broke one of the handles to my suitcase. On the return home. They broke the 2nd one. When I spoke to the baggage office they could of cared less and didn't offer me anything. Don't think I'll ever fly with Frontier again."
Cons: "The checked bag fee."
Pros: "Plane did not crash. Thankful that the water was free and there was no charge for cabin pressurization."
Cons: "Steerage accomodations deceptively marketed. Was on a Delta flight 2 days earlier (at a lower price). Couldn't believe yours was the same model plane, Congratulations on having designed the most mean SPIRiTED seat in the airline industry - deliberately less undersest storage and no cushioning or reclining so you can pack in like sardines, only to find on ticket checkout that I would have to add a special premium because the right to sit is not included in my ticket price. By the time I discovered I'd be paying for my cup of coffee, I wasn't even surprised. I, and the two travelers I met sharing my row, were first and last time customers,"
Pros: "The boarding process is fast"
Cons: "The seat was not fall back. Very uncomfortable for the long flight. Plus there is no entertainment, making the flight even linger"
Cons: "Red eye flight so food and entertainment were limited. Comfort was an issue if you were trying to sleep as I was in a middle seat."
Pros: "Both flights felt like there wasn't a sense of urgency. Although my flights went smoothly personally, others fell victim to the extra fees for not checking in a bag ahead of time. The customer service when checking into the flight to Detroit was appalling, however. The reps made us check in at a certain time and then disappeared when that time came, leaving a brand new employee to himself and I'm assuming a manager with his arms crossed. Not engaging his line, letting them know he'd be right with them. Customers frustrated began cutting the line and it's understandable, getting charged up to three times as one put it for the same bag. All that aside, I liked that I could pick my seat and naturally chose the front of the plane. The crew on way home was amazing! Very friendly and kind hearted."
Cons: "They lost my seat reservation with no explanation. I was given a choice of exit row (have to get up to access my items in flight), or the very last row. No snacks were offered. Flight attendants were a little rude informing people "I said you can't form a line [for the bathroom], I didn't say you had to sit down!". The final boarding call was made TWENTY minutes before take off, forcing me to wait in a huge line to get to my seat (during which time I could have easily used the bathroom). The plane then still left 5 minutes late."
Pros: "On time. All better than expected. Great price."
Cons: "Seats uncomfortable."
Pros: "Flight was on time, and the TSA Pre was offered"
Pros: "The plane took off and landed without killing me."
Cons: "LGA terminal was a mess."
Pros: "Frontier is a competent, on-time flight operation, and a good value for the money. Expect full flights on newish planes. No amenities unless you want to pay, which is okay for a 2-hour flight."
Cons: "Seats are like benches. Hard, and no reclining in coach."
Cons: "Charge me more Manny because 5 minutes late that is was expectable"
Cons: "I've been on four Frontier fligts in the past week and a half. Every single one has been delayed over an hour because they weren't properly staffed. Just pay more to fly a different airline."
Pros: "Everyone was nice once we were on board"
Cons: "Our well-working plane was clearly given to another group, and all we were told was that we had a gate change that then turned into a 2h delay for mechanical problems. If you're giving the broken plane to us because the other passengers have a connection and we don't, say that, don't just act like nothing changed. Also, it's been a while since I rode Frontier and I really disliked the dinky trays and poorly arranged under-seat storage."
Pros: "I paid a little extra for a bigger seat area, and was pleased with the room"
Cons: "Bags were lost in Denver. I might not fly with Frontier because I am worried I will lose my bags again."
Pros: "Attendants were very polite"
Cons: "Waiting too long for the next fly."
Cons: "The airline charges additional fees every steps for the trip, including seat selection, baggage fees. We will not book on this airline again."
Pros: "Clean, professional, on time."
Cons: "Least comfortable seats of any airline I've flown. Like sitting on a wooden bench. Leg room okay."
Cons: "While the return flight wasn't as late as the first one (7 hours), it was again late (hour and a half) delayed 3 times. In talking to the person next to me, I discovered that he flew in from a different city and was also delayed by several hours. So this is just what Frontier does apparently. For both flights, Kayak was kind enough to send us regular updates on flight status beginning 2 DAYS AFTER THE FLIGHT!!! Everything was a colossal mess."
Cons: "9 hour delay, uncomfortable seat/didn't recline. Crew was unhelpful and didn't give us straight info about delay. Sat on plane 3 hrs then had to get off. Reboarded 2 hrs later and still had to sit back on plane for 2 more hours before take off. Terrible experience."
Cons: "The extra fees were not apparent in the pricing until after I had purchased the ticket. It was really deceptive."
Pros: "Due to the 5 hour delay i found it hard to give anything above two stars. The crew had no blame on their part so I gave them good reviews."
Cons: "The five hour delay is my money complaint and the other lyrics that really matters when it comes to flights. Plans had to be cancelled and I ended up paying more because my driver was held back so I had to cover his wait fee."
Pros: "Price point, comfortable seat."
Cons: "No entertainment options"
Pros: "I am an easy going person and thought my expectations for air travel were low enough but this flight proved me wrong. After paying for the flight, then paying for your bags, and then paying to choose a seat, an extra $120 later, you are finally on the plane. The new seats are paper thin, the trays are the size of a trashy paper back novel, the arm rests are hard chunks of plastic that barely allowed room for an elbow. Being six feet tall I often feel a bit more cramped than others, i expect this, but this was the worst I can remember. In addition to the seats being the thickness of a potato chip, they do not recline (I was told they are "pre-reclided") and the seat backs are short which left my head bobbing well above the back of the seat. Meanwhile, my knees are firmly smashed up against the seat in front of me, preventing me from slouching at all to allow my head a place to rest. Then there was my polite request for a cup of water, "we have bottled water for $2". All beverages are for purchase only. There will be no sleep or comfort on this 2 hour flight, enjoy and thanks for flying."
Cons: "The crew was very nice, plane was clean, and the flight got in early."
Pros: "It's cheap. Well, the baseline ticket at least. For this flight, I wasn't bringing any luggage (it was a short flight as part of a move, and all of my things were being carried via other means), so it made sense."
Cons: "The airline nickel and dimes you for everything. Carry-on or checked bags will cost you. A drink on the plane will cost you. We were delayed about 20 minutes getting on the plane and then sat on the runway for over an hour before we left. The last 20 minutes of that was due to wind reducing available runways for all departures and arrivals, but the first runway delay was caused by not one but two maintenance issues. Frontier actually just finished replacing their old planes with newer plans that have more uncomfortable seats with tiny trays and no on-board entertainment. For a short flight, it's not horrific, but for a cross-country journey, it's highly uncomfortable. The crew are just "there." Gone are the days of a warm cookie when you sit down. I've never had happy or friendly attendants, either. They do their job at the minimum. Slow to respond to guest issues and I've seen them be a bit rude with customers as well. I've had issues in the past with Frontier and lost luggage and lacking customer service. I only went with them this time because I wasn't bringing kids or luggage and just needed a cheap one-way. Otherwise I would never fly them."
Cons: "Missed my flight played for insurance and didn't want to help at all."
