Cons: "The plane had problems delaying the flight by 3hrs. Alaska really should change how they load the plane. After all the special people (first class, mvps, etc.) then passengers without carryons then people with carryons. This would speed up the process and keep people from getting stuck behind people who are messing with their bags."

Pros: "Nice flight attendants, and the flight on the way home was not overbooked, which was lovely!"

I was happy to do what they said, but it would be nice if they were more consistent about the bag sizes. I didn't have this problem on the way back to Seattle though."
Pros: "Free Movie selection; plag in devices"
Cons: "Nothing. Everything was great"
Pros: "Direct flight to my final destination. Friendly crew."
Cons: "I was assigned seats that didn't recline on an overnight flight both ways. Boo! Those downgraded seats need to be labeled clearly, disclosed before boarding, and given at a discount. Super disappointed!!"
Pros: "wifi phone charging"
Cons: "I arrived later than most, since my connecting flight was tight. Unfortunately, other passengers had let their young daughter take my seat and didn't seem to understand that I wanted to sit by a window (having never flown to the northwest, I wanted to see the view). Didn't want to seem like a heartless adult, so I sat in the aisle seat in another row. not good! constantly jostled by people going to and from the bathroom. and the kid closed the window anyways! I saw people take someone else's seat on the way to Portland, but the original person asked them to move. Guess it's a common thing"
Pros: "Fantastic crew"
Pros: "Alaska airlines rocks! Flight was early too."
Cons: "Ok, crew was ok, we arrived an hour early. Everything else was terrible to bad. No food in 6 hr flight?! Given a single tiny bite sized cookie, and only 2 small glasses of water, soda or juice. I'm a tall size 0, who still found the seats uncomfortably tight. WIFI was not included. We had to pay & pre load their app before the flight. Costumer service gets 2 out of 5 rating, giving 1 for showing up 2 for being dolled up"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and flight was on time."
Cons: "As I went to board my flight to return to Austin my seat was changed for "operational purposes" from a window to seat B elsewhere. I hate to complain and at the point we were boarding and I simply wanted to return home. However I have motion sickness typically and really hate being stuck in seat B neither on the isle or window as this really does not assist with feeling nauseated. Furthermore the seat I was placed in did not recline so I was unable to relax at all once we were airborne."
Pros: "The flight was quiet. No loud talkers was able to sleep."
Cons: "Too many people with more than one carry on. I was unable to store my bag above my seat."
Pros: "Everything was efficient and quick. Plane was clean. Crew was responsive."
Cons: "No entertainment. Temp of plane was warmer than usual and above head fan didn't seem to work."
Pros: "The crew were all great."
Cons: "I had a window seat and the window itself looked like it hadn't been cleaned in quite some time. It was not only dirty but it was gross. Smears of what appeared to be a dried up liquid or something. Lastly, there were smeared boogers in several different spots around the window. I didn't want to touch anything. Seriously the nastiest flight I've been on."
Pros: "No need to print boarding pass is nice because most customers don't have a printer at home. Great idea using an app on customers' smart devices. Charging ports is great plus."
Cons: "Lack of free services to kill time during a long flight. No free music and lack of free video. I was surprised Samsung Note 7 wasn't banned during my flight because of the battery issue."
Cons: "YOU CHARGE TOO MUCH FOR OVERWEIGHT PACKAGE."
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Wish the seat was more comfortable. Landing was jittery and bumpy."
Pros: "Super comfortable seats. Lots of movie options."
Cons: "Food was not very good"
Pros: "Standard Air France flight. My wife and I like the Airbus 380."
Cons: "The flight left two hours late. Apparently this happens a lot with this flight these days because it's an Airbus 380 coming from Paris to Dulles and turning around. The incoming flight was two hours late, so the departure was late. Our arrival in Paris was late. We made the flight, but our luggage didn't. Our return flight from Paris to Dulles was half an hour late because of people from connecting flights. We arrived about 30 minutes late, but no big deal (unless you had a connection)"
Pros: "Good flight attendants.."
Pros: "Inflight Service is great"
Pros: "Good service. And good features. Enough space in seats in first class."
Pros: "Olivia Sanchez and Yvette Diaz were absolutely. 100% phenomenal. They upgraded my friends and I to a flight tomorrow, and we can still meet with our group in time."

Pros: "My upgrade was fabulous!"
Pros: "Flying first class and the attendants were wonderful"

Pros: "Flight attendants were nice based on the situations beyond their control."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for about three hours, due to mechanical issues with the second engine not starting. We sat on the the plane for over an hour and half. Some people that missed their connection flights were offered hotel stay. Others that had no connection flight was not offered anything for the several hours of delay that occurred."
Pros: "All good"
Pros: "The chekc in person was very helpful."
Cons: "The plane was too hot and the pilot did not accommodate the passengers request. More than just me made the same request."
Pros: "Coldest flight I’ve ever taken. Not sure why I paid $60 to fly in comfort when I had to endure the arctic temperatures. Free WiFi never worked once either."
Cons: "That I was going to be charged $125 for oversized luggage unti"
Pros: "That I landed safely"
Cons: "1st class was horrible."
Pros: "Great and friendly crew"
Cons: "baggage rules, check in with baggage, change fee for flight when it was not customers issue that caused the 5 min delay! Unable to reach reservation desk on line or via phone (neither was the gate agent)"

Pros: "Smooth, quick and comfortable flight."
Pros: "got to change my seat and have a spacious exit row"
Cons: "Delayed two hours"
Cons: "I have the worst opinion of the Delta company, when I was flying to Atlanta on October 20 they changed my flight at the last minute I had to leave until my job to take another flight. Just today when returning my suitcase did not arrive they sent it to another destination. I think the company gives very bad service."
Pros: "Perfect flight"
Pros: "Good food and movies. Comfy seating with plenty of room."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and gave great service."
Cons: "Legroom was poor, Im 6' tall and my knees were rubbing the seat in front. Flight was full so no alternate."
Pros: "Free movies helped the time fly by. Stewardess, or whatever the PC word us now, Britt was awesome"
Pros: "Excellent customer service. Friendly and helpful crew."
Cons: "Seats where still small in business and first class."
Pros: "Flight attendants and cookies. That's it."
Cons: "We left DC late because of Delta's inefficient boarding process. We landed in Atlanta late. Our flight to Sioux Falls left early, without us. My pregnant wife and I made it to the gate 4 minutes before the scheduled departure and they told us the plane was already gone and there was no way for us to get on the plane. Our bags did make it to Sioux Falls, so my wife didn't have her prenatal vitamins, , we had no clean clothes and we were forced to spend the night in Atlanta. The saddest part of yet another terrible experience with Delta was that they offered us a "discounted" room at a terrible Howard Johnson for $72. I looked online and the same hotel was $65 to book on Kayak. So basically Delta was trying to scam us after they screwed us. Thanks Delta! Instead we paid $200+ to stay at an airport hotel. Every time I fly Delta I regret it, yet occasionally I get forced to take their awful airline to get somewhere I need to go. It never fails to add another bad Delta experience to my long list of failings from this SAD!!! airline."
Pros: "Cabin crew was very polite helpful and friendly."
Cons: "Can't change the weather. Flight was delayed a bit but they were very informative as they found out info."
Cons: "Never made it on this flight and in the end my luggage was lost."
Cons: "There delay"
Pros: "The crews were very friendly and everything went as planned. It was a nice flight."
Pros: "The flight was smooth and the food selection was surprising delicious. The crew was very attentive."
Cons: "The leg room was much less than the last time I flew Virgin (booked via Delta) and made for an uncomfortable trip. Could not sleep as a result. If you're tall like me you'll need to book a higher seating category."
Pros: "First class crew was great! Smooth ride, arrived early"
Cons: "Lunch option on LAX-AUS wasn't that good (chicken salad or meatballs), also was pretty sparse on the meal itself compared to other airlines"
Cons: "paying extra for leg room and checked bags"
Cons: "Missed connection"
Pros: "Crew was attentive, kept us informed throughout, and were friendly. Landing was smooth."
Cons: "Bathroom ran out of tissues and toilet paper halfway through the flight. Alerted the crew, and they added tp. Bathrooms seem to have gotten even narrower, barely any room to move in there! Also, we had to sit on the tarmac after landing for 30 min due to gate traffic. A few minor inconveniences, but overall tolerable."
Pros: "The Delta crew on the flight was wonderful - but the crew at ATL really shined. A huge amount of people for connections arrived at the same time and needed to get through customs and the staff were very calm and efficient in directing everyone and making sure the line moved."
Pros: "The crew was very nice as usual. A bit too many announcements that ran a bit too long. Other than that great folks."
Cons: "No water on the plane so no coffee and no running water in the bathrooms. They did well trying to accommodate but between that and a calibration issue in the cockpit that had us running late it was not the best delta flight I've been on."
Pros: "Clean plane, good service. on time departure, early arrival."
Cons: "I did not like the way the plane was boarded- people could not get into their seats because others blocked the aisles - so chaotic. Passengers were not being rude to one another, it was simply that the process is poor. Could the zones instead reflect both location of seat and area of plane, so that those with window seats at the back board first, then middle seats, then aisle? That way if aisle seats fill first, seated people are not stepping back into the aisle to accommodate others needing to get a seat in that row, while everyone on the gang way must wait for the aisle to clear."
Pros: "What they offer is OK."
Cons: "Being scammed by the Chinese, China Southern"
Cons: "No leg room, seats vastly too narrow"
Pros: "I am 6'6" 300 pounds ... So I regularly book first class for trips over 2 hours in length ... Delta remains my #1 choice for both value and overall experience in first class. The difference between Delta and all other domestic carriers is just overwhelming. United and American/US Air could learn a lot from Delta. I could have flown this trip direct on United, but chose to fly through Atlanta on Delta for less money and a better experience from the baggage check to the gate to the in-flight experience."
Pros: ".....delta in Washington was great changed my flight so I didn't have delay !!!!!! Will always use"
Cons: "The economy seating was very tight on this plane. I'm just 5'8", and it felt incredibly tight. I think I had 2" of leg room. I cannot imagine being much taller."
Cons: "Delayed as always, time it was a 2 hour delay. The worse airline I've flown on."
Pros: "The flight was great and landed early."
Pros: "787 seats have better legroom & recliner"
Cons: "Vegetarian food needs lot of improvement"
Cons: "We landed early but the plane was late 50 minutes into gate. Plane went pst our gate twice, just driving around the terminal."
Cons: "The chairs can be more comfortable."
Pros: "The flight was on time. The crew was friendly."
Cons: "Too little legroom."
Pros: "Even the food was decent (granted, I flew in 1st,so at least there was food)."
Cons: "Power outlet cover was busted. But it worked."
Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "Tiny bathrooms"
Cons: "Had a mechanical problem and took us 30 minutes to take off"
Cons: "My flight was delayed an hour plus and I missed my rental car reservation. So now I'm stuck wih no car."
Cons: "Cramped seating"
Cons: "I bought travel insurance as I do with any trip. I have a complicated family emergency that forced me to call off the trip. Being that I bought trip insurance, I felt good. Well turns out they make you jump through so many hoops that your travel insurance fee is useless. I sent a letter to Allianz (the company that handles the travel insurance) and blasted them for their insensitivity in a difficult time. Going forward, I will not be purchasing travel insurance in the future. It may sound irrational but if you think about it, travel insurance is the tax on gullible people. You hear travel insurance and one assumes that if you spend the extra money on the insurance and something comes up, you can at least get much of your money back. Don't count on it! It's a 1/1000 chance they will do the right thing so the odds are not in people's favor. If you want to be smart, use the money you would have spent on travel insurance on some pre flight cocktails at the airport bar. Air travel is hellish enough without scams like Allianz!"
Cons: "Seat in front of me was broken in the reclined position so I had no leg room."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled"
Pros: "the plane was very new and in excellent condition"
Pros: "The seat pockets were decent, though I like when the magazines have their own designated slot behind the tray in addition to a pocket. Also good there were power outlets. I liked that they didn't skip row numbers, including 13. So if you're in row 22, for example, you know that's literally how many rows back you are."
Cons: "It took 25 minutes from when plane landed until it reached the gate. There was also apparently an issue with the auxiliary power -- the lights went out in back half of plane when we arrived at gate. I prefer having a screen behind each seat, rather than those attached to ceiling on this flight, so that the entertainment can be customized."
Pros: "Full can of tomato juice, head rests on the seat, relatively roomy seats and happy attendants."
Pros: "NOT much!"
Cons: "My window seat was right against the right engine. I could feel the vibrations and noise. It seemed like an old plane. I was definitely miserable on this flight. Very!"
Cons: "Plane had no Per-seat entertainment system."
Pros: "Experienced a 4.5 hr delay to the destination. Family had to pick up grandson (Ibooked trip for him) after midnight in L.A. 2 hour flight delay coming back which pick up had to be re-arranged again by family. Family member flew to us next day via United without any issues. Dont book through this site or use American Airlines!!!"
Cons: "See above"
Cons: "The fact that we didn't know we were supposed to go to American Airlines to acquire our boarding pass. A heads up would've been appreciated."
Cons: "Delayed waiting to unload fuel, then delayed again after they broke the tow-bar and had to inspect the nose gear. Hot cabin while waiting."
Pros: "Everything was timely, courteous & pleasant. The aircraft was very clean."
Cons: "Was very stuffy and hot. Plane never cooled down."
Pros: "I got home safely"
Cons: "The airport was super crowded and the space in the plane was cramped (and I am a small person - 120 pounds). The plane was not clean and I actually picked up a virus on the plane and am still sick. I wiped down all of the surface area around my seat and still got sick. Airline travel is miserable and crowded and there is minimum service."
Cons: "He flight was extremely cold and they did not have any blankets. Very uncomfortable."
Cons: "lack of ent. options"
Pros: "There were no seats available together so we were upgraded to the extra room seats so that we could all sit together. As a mother flying by herself with 2 children, one of whom is on the Austin spectrum this gesture of being able to keep us together meant so much to all 3 of us. Thank you"
Pros: "I was traveling with two teenagers and originally there weren't 3 seats together. When we got to the gate they had reassigned our seats for us to sit all together. I appreciate that."
Cons: "We had already pulled out of the gate to leave when the captain informed us the plane had maintenance issues and we had to wait for a gate. We waited. When we got to the gate he announced the crew had timed out and that we should take our things and get down to wait for more information. Once at the gate we were told they were trying to put a new crew together for us, including the pilot. While we waited they did provide good quality deli food for us. I appreciate the food but the 5 hour delay, I did not appreciate."
Pros: "Boarding process and flight crew were just fine - nothing excellent, just average. The plane was an older model, nothing special. We arrived 10 minutes early but then had to wait 20 minutes for a gate."
Cons: "They had no alcohol and no entertainment on a Transcontinental flight from IAD to LAX. Also once we landed we had to wait 20 for a gate assignment."
Cons: "Delayed for 4 hours"
Cons: "While trying to get help with my boarding pass, the woman behind the counter was so rude and nasty. Yelled at me for being at her desk when another American employee took me there."
Pros: "I liked the 2 x 2 seating arrangement. Leg room was adequate."
Pros: "I got these flights for dj jobs I had under a us p2 visa. My original flight to dallas was delayed from 12:56 to 8pm which would of landed me in dallas at 2:21am but the club Fat Rabbit closes at 2am Which in fact was a 1300 (US dollar) loss. I re booked my ticket to Austin from Vancouver this morning because the only reason to go dallas was my job. Was supposed to fly in have dinner play music get back on the plane n go Austin but going to dallas was irrelevant and a 7 hour delay was absolutely ridiculous."
Cons: "The fact I lost 1300.00 us has pissed me off I'm contacting AA about this I have my visa papers n contracts to show proof if not action is taken i will be contacting a lawyer"
Pros: "entertainment displays on the back of every seat headrest. Nice room on Main Cabin Xtra, even with someone in the middle seat."
Cons: "1 of the flight attendants was pushy(older caucasian lady)"
Cons: "Delayed on the ground and didn't make up any time in the air. Arrived 45 minutes late."
Pros: "Flight got to gate 15 earlier than scheduled."
Cons: "But took one hour to get gate checked bag, which was mixed in with checked bags at bagged claim."
Pros: "WHAT FOOD.,,,,,,.AA DOSE NOT FEE US OR HAVE ANY ENTERTAINMENT,"
Cons: "NOTHING AA IS JUST AS BAD AS FIJI AIRWAYS"
Pros: "Comfy seats, great service, was a smooth ride"
Cons: "my entertainment system wasnt working, the headphone jack was not working at all."
Cons: "Board keeper rude to several guest who didn't want to check in their bag when there was plenty of room on the flight."
Pros: "Both power and USB plugs at each seat. Entertainment options not bad."
Cons: "Very narrow seats with little leg room. Reclined seat in front of you is right in your face."
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "Worst airline I have ever used. Continuously bad experiences."
Pros: "Friendly, helpful flight attendants. Flight left and arrived on time, despite being completely full (asking for volunteers to bump). Offered to gate-check our carry-on bags for free to alleviate crowding of overhead bins was fine for us since we already had checked baggage."
Cons: "If you don't pay for the premium seats, the legroom is pretty tight. I'm only 5'8" and I felt it -- if you're 6'+ you better pay for it. This aircraft had screens, but not individual ones so you're stuck watching whatever sitcom replay they pick, although there is a moderate selection of other music. I've been on a newer aircraft with the in-seat power and interactive screens so I know how good it can be, so this was a little disappointing."
Pros: "Other than the delay, it was your basic 1 hour flight."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by an hour."
Pros: "once i was allowed to board the flight attendants were kind and apologetic"
Cons: "they overbooked the flight. when I asked for clarification about what I should expect, people at the gate were rude for without provocation. They told me I had no seat and were unapologetic about their mistake. when they, at the last minute, said there was room, they assigned me a seat that was already taken."
Pros: "Crew was super nice"
Cons: "Flight was hour late leaving. Seats too close together. Guy next to me dipped himself in cologne before boarding."
Cons: "Each flight delayed at least an hour"
Pros: "I did like sitting on the left side of the plane. There's a little more room. I feel it's horrible how the airline charges so much and cram so many seats in one air craft. Making it a miserable flight."
Cons: "See above"
Cons: "no food"
Pros: "The crew, how we left promptly and didn't take ages boarding."
Cons: "The seats, the lack of food options."
Cons: "No snack"
Pros: "I liked that the seats seemed roomier. The crew was very polite and professional. The baggagr allowance seemed generous compared to other airlines (Frontier)"
Cons: "I didnt get any of the benefits that are supposed to come with the American Airlines credit card. I never have."
Pros: "My trip overall was great . I like the many stops for us to walk around and not be stuck in the plane for 11 plus hours . Our planes all the way to Zurich and back had no delays at all . Awesome"
Cons: "The only proble we experience was in the way back our booking didn’t show in the system only partial."
Pros: "Flight attendant service was great."
Cons: "I'm tall and the seats are cramped."
Cons: "Never made it to destination"
Cons: "Poor WiFi. Poor video. Very small seating"
Pros: "Entertainment, food, service, on-time landing (early!)"
Pros: "The direct TV was free on this leg of my trip"
Cons: "Many delays. Uncomfortable seats. No outlets on that particular plane."
Pros: "One of us had the last seat on the plane even though they were reserved almost a month ago. However we had signed up for basic economy so that was not a shock. What was a shock was that water was dripping from the top side track onto his lap and he had to use the provided brochures to redirect the dripping water. The steward said it was condensation and that was it. Also, since it was next to bathroom, the smell wasn't great and the small child screaming while waiting to get into the bathroom wasn't pleasant."
Cons: "We were forced to deplane in DC and instructed to go to the United customer service counter to arrange our missed connections in Frankfurt. After standing in line at the United counter for 2 hours, we were told to go to our gate to re-board our plane. we wasted all that time standing and all but 2 agents had left the counter to take a break. it was EXTREMELY STRESSFUL not knowing what would happen to our missed connections. when we reboarded WE still did not have connecting flights.Also, on the United flight to Frankfurt, I had a premium economy seat and it was HORRIFIC. the extra leg room did NOT make the seat more comfortable and I SUFFERED greatly because I am recovering from an injury. Upon arrival in Frankfurt, after a great deal of begging, I got a hotel room for the night and upgrad to economy premium for the flight from Frankfurt to Addis. that Lufthana flight was better because my seat reclined somewhat but still I had a great deal of pain throughout the flight and I would have preferred to have been upgraded to business so that I could lay flat to ease my physical pain. Overall, the experience was extremely STRESSFUL and painful and the only way, I feel that Lufthana can repair this situation is to give me a free upgrade to business on my flight home.to Miami"
Pros: "An old 777 , dirty and the food was horrible."

Pros: "Boarding was quick"
Cons: "Intercom anouncements on late night flight. Way too many about the ball game"

Cons: "Old plane and was not clean."
Cons: "I was bumped from my confirmed flight and had to sprint across the airport to catch an earlier flight where they put me in the back of the plane in a middle seat with an entertainment monitor that didn't work. The flight attendant said she'd try to reset the monitor and then never came back the rest of the flight. I also was not compensated for agreeing to take another flight than the one I booked, paid for and successfully checked in for. I also got into Austin later than I wanted with this new flight I was forced to take. Overall this experience was a terrible one unfortunately."
Pros: "Boarding and de-boarding seemed quicker than other flights on other airlines"
Cons: "Noisy/ squeaky seat"
Pros: "Very friendly staff. Easy flight, no issues."
Cons: "Little more leg room. Eye mask would have been nice."

Pros: "Food was a bit better than I expected. Videos kept going out. Staff were great. Plane landed well!"
Pros: "that the plane landed in one piece"
Cons: "it was late 1.5 hours it badly was overbooked hand luggage hysteria lack of aircon while on the ground overall attitude of crew"
Cons: "The plane was old. Entertainment screen too small and no way to restart a show. No AC power sockets at chairs. I was sitting at back of the plane and at the time food came there was no choice - they ran out of food options. Also, the plane storage bins were too small to fit small bags."
Pros: "Lots of movies and shows plus constant tracking info."
Cons: "Closeness of seats and worn out touch screens on seat backs resulted in people behind us constantly kicking and pounding on our setbacks throughout the flight. Cleaning crew did not do a thorough job, leaving trash and used chewing gum on floor from previous flight."
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. My baggage did not reach with me and they promised to deliver it with in next 6 hours and it turned out that they took more than 18 hours to deliver my baggage to my home. My entire day got wasted waiting for this baggage to reach me. Poor communication made me wait and watch the door every hour. I tried to reach and get some information on when that baggage would reach me but no body knows."
Cons: "Small cramped plan. Seats did not recline."
Cons: "Flight was canceled and announced at midnight"
Pros: "The mango sorbet"
Pros: "Was pleasantly surprised by leg room in coach"
Cons: "More water needs to be offered more often"
Cons: "Old plane, old in-seat entertainment system. Since a phone or tablet won't play for hours off of battery, the usefulness of United App entertainment greatly limited by lack of outlets in Economy."
Pros: "A good selection of recent movies to watch"
Cons: "Flight was delayed because we didn't have a pilot? They did get a pilot quickly though and the flight was shorter than originally stated so we got there about the same time we were originally expecting."
Pros: "Easy enough"
Cons: "should have happened yesterday."
Pros: "Price was great"
Pros: "Yes it was. People were very nice"
Pros: "The crew was nice and did the best they could."
Cons: "The plane was newer and the seats were leather, so it looked clean and nice. But the seats are really close together in every side, it is tight sitting. The terminals are bare bones, had to walk out in the rain and hail to get inside, and the luggage took forever. The pricing policies are insane, charges for luggage, drinks, all very unclear. First time using Frontier and it seems like a great deal at first but adding up all the extra fees I am never using them again, the price ends up being like a regular carrier. Not worth it."
Cons: "1 hour Late departure and It took 45 minutes to get our bags once we arrived in Austin. :("
Pros: "Pilot and crew were skilled in preparation for crash landing"
Cons: "2 hour delays on tarmac, aircraft malfunction and frightening landing. Will not fly with Frontier again"
Pros: "Nonstop flight."
Cons: "90 minute delay to repair toilets and the toilets were dirty."
Pros: "Flight departed on time and we actually landed 20 minutes early."
Pros: "I liked that we left on time and actually arrived early."
Cons: "I didn’t like the fact that you have to pay for wveeyrhing.I don’t like that they nickel and dime you"
Cons: "Lots of miscommunication and no help with assisting passengers off plane to rebook Austin to San Diego flight"
Cons: "I was not picked up with my super Shuttle to go to the airport, so I missed the flight. My name is barbara"
Cons: "I'd rather get bumped off a United flight and sleep on the floor airport than fly Frontier. Do yourself the favor and spend the extra money. You'll at least get a free carry on, and be able to recline your seat."
Cons: "I paid $45 to check a small bag becuse I was carrying a tennis racket inside it. They said I could not take it with me in the plane. Once I got in the plane I saw a tennis racket in one of the overhead bins. I'm writting this for two reasons: 1. I'm mad because I paid $45 for nothing. 2. I'm bored because we landed in Austin 30 minutes ago and I'M STILL INSIDE THE PLANE!!"
Pros: "Cheap flight, on time, friendly crew."
Cons: "frontier has become a "no bells and whistles" airline. None of the seats recline. You must pay extra for ANY carry-on besides a purse or one personal item. No free beverages or snacks of any kind. No in-flight music or tv monitor. If you want a specific seat, that also costs extra. It feels like a very basic no frills commuter bus, fine for short trips but don't expect any comfort."
Pros: "The baseline flight was inexpensive."
Cons: "After landing, we had to sit on the runway for 40 minutes, because frontier has only one gate at Austin International, and here was another plane still at the gate loading. Basically, they incorrectly scheduled the flights. As if that wasn't annoying enough. After landing, we had to wait an additional 50 minutes to receive our luggage! In all, it was an hour and a half after landing that I had my luggage in hand and finally got to leave the airport. You must pay to select a seat. You must pay to have a carry-on ($35 to $60 depending on when you pay) or any luggage at all. Basically you must pay a little extra for everything. The seats are a piece of sheet metal with 1/4" of padding, do not recline, and have less leg room than any other airline in my experience. There was an empty exit row seat, and as I am tall (6'2"), I thought it wasn't unreasonable for me to ask to move. When the flight attendant walked by, I had to say excuse me several times, each time louder until I was virtually shouting. When she finally acknowledged me and I asked about the seat, she said sure, you can move, for $50."
Cons: "The credit card sales pitch. Too long and loud. People were trying to sleep and were rudely woken up and subjected to that !"
Pros: "Overall service"
Cons: "I will be hesitant to fly with Fromtier again. They nickel and dime you for everything!"
Pros: "Poor quality airline. Will never ride the airline again."
Cons: "Frontier service."
Pros: "The fares are unbeatable"
Cons: "Consistently late."
Pros: "See aforementioned."
Cons: "Wish that you cou;d use Apple Pay or at least a credit card to purchase snacks/drinks, etc."
Cons: "Riding on an American airlines is like spending a few hours in prison. The worst is Spirit arilines, where they do not even provide free water on a four hour flight. Frontier airlines is only one step above because they will give you water. The seats are too tight, not enough leg room. I'm 6'2" and 230 lbs. You buy a ticket for a reasonable amount, but then you get hit with the unreasonable add ons: you want checked bag $35, carry-on baggage $45, you want to sit together $25, and on and on. Let me not forget, I need a boarding pass to get thru security to get to the gate to catch the flight I have paid for, $5. I'm looking for an airline that puts people before profit.#AMERICANAIRLINESSUCK"
Cons: "40 minutes and still no bags"
Pros: "early arrival. smooth flight"
Cons: "you charge for everything!"
Cons: "First off, it's ridiculous that after buying a ticket aboard Frontier online, nothing was mentioned before hand about purchasing a seat!!!! - really, what was the ticket supposed to cover. Then, large charges for a small carry-on and also a checked bag that I did online. Then worse, aboard the plane, I discovered that all cokes, etc. and peanuts, etc. had to be purchased. You talk about cheap and greedy. The flight back from Denver was even worse as it was running almost an hour and a half behind, then they switched gates, and after finally boarding at the other gate, we sat at the boarding gate for over an hour, with very little contact or explanation from the crew, not even offering passengers a drink of water."
Pros: "The crew was very courteous and attentive."
Cons: "Significant delay due to computer problem. Very uncomfortable seating."
Cons: "Everything. Maintenance issue. Debording in Austin. Seat confusion. Never again!"
Pros: "We got there safe and sound."
Cons: "The gates were changed almost at the last minute and we didn't hear any announcements. A few passengers we're almost late for boarding. I found out because some lady came by and asked if this was the flight to some where else. That's how I found out the gates were changed. I told the rep to make sure that they make the announcement so everyone knows of the changes. I could of got on the wrong plane and missed my flight."
Cons: "The worse service ever; Would not buy tickets from them again... You get what you paid for - Baggage and seating are extra fees"
Cons: "Don't fly, they charge you for everything ,even a carry-on $65 and they are super rude. They made my brother miss his flight because he was 35 minutes before take off instead of there 40 minute rule. Don't do it !!!!"
Cons: "Plane was delayed by 5 and a half hours due to a storm. Something Frontier had no control over. What they did have control over, however, was their communication, which was non-existent. People at the gate wouldn't tell passengers anything, and responded to questions with "I don't know." When one woman complained about the lack of communication, a Frontier worker told her dismissively that she could call the manager. We kept learning about the flight delays by watching the status board. The front gate workers wouldn't say anything, and most people were too worried about missing the flight to run and get something to eat."
Pros: "Crew was good Plane left on time"
Cons: "Boarding, Boarding, Boarding Everyone with a carry on being forced to pay Yelling and screaming at gate agent about baggage fees Total cluster FXXX in the gate area."
Cons: "$40 for carryon bag!? And no complementary drink. United airlines rock."
Pros: "They 'nickle and dime' you. The cost of the ticket does not include seat selection, carry-on baggage, or soft drinks. Charge me $2 more and give me a soft drink"
Cons: "They took off only a few minutes late and landed roughly on time. Of course, we had to wait for the arrival gate access."
Pros: "The flight itself was ok. I especially liked the humor the captain used while going through the routine safety explanation! Also, despite being delayed by about 30 minutes, we still somehow arrived at our destination city early/ on time."
Cons: "My girlfriend pointed out that you guys do not have air-sickness bags available."
Pros: "Charging for a carry on bag at the last minute when I was checking in was unprofessional. It didn't leave me with an option to choose and it was misleading. I will not be flying frontier again. Congrats on being sneaky and losing another customer. Also the pilot was awful."
Cons: "Our flight was cancelled and we were not given vouchers for another flight, told we would NOT be reimbursed for our flight, told they could get us on another flight on Tuesday morning and told they wouldn't put us up in a hotel for the night. I am a doctor and waiting till Tuesday for a return flight home is NOT optional or acceptable given that there wasn't any bad weather. NO other flights were cancelled during that time. I had to rent a car, drive to Phoenix and book 4 tickets on UNITED in order to get my team and myself back home to see patients Monday morning. We finally made it home at 5:45 pm yesterday after 36 hours of being awake trying to get home without any help from FRONTIER. I will NEVER fly Frontier again and I will never recommend that airline to anyone I know. It was an awful experience and am extremely upset about the additional money to purchase 4 extra airline tickets."
Pros: "Peppy flight attendants."
Cons: "Like other reviewers here, I was extremely disappointed with Frontier. The round trip flight I purchased was advertised at $178. At no point during the purchase of this flight was I explicitly and directly warned that Frontier charges, at minimum, $30 (each way) to CARRY-ON luggage that must be placed in the overhead compartment. I do not know the cost to check baggage, but I assume it is comparable to the carry-on fee. In my ethically driven opinion, the round rip price of the trip should have been advertised at $238 to account for the baggage fees. I WAS MISLED. To make matters worse, because I was blissfully unaware of Frontier's carry-on policy and failed to read the fine print while checking in online, I WAS CHARGED $60 AT THE GATE to carry on my roller board. When I asked the gate agent to explain the charge, she - without eye contact and with a mean tone - condescendingly attributed the charge to my stupidity. She proceeded to spit this attitude to the DOZENS OF OTHER CUSTOMERS WHO WERE UNAWARE OF CHARGE AND HAD TO PAY AT THE GATE. In sum, I will end up paying an additional $90 in carry-on baggage fees. I will not fly Frontier again."
Pros: "Got us there ahead of schedule."
Cons: "Pack them in like sardines."
Pros: "The plane crew was amazing, friendly and service oriented. The baltimore boarding crew, borderline offensive when asked about the baggage fees(probably because she's tired of being the front line of complaint) but still poor attitudes don't soothe customers irritability with questions."
Cons: "Fees after fees, to breathe to carry on seat purchase I mean what did the initial ticket even buy?!?? Stop give the full cost up front instead of slowly taking money from passengers. I Won't fly frontier if I don't have to again, it'll be my very last choice."
Cons: "I did not like the fact that I was not informed from the very beginning that it was an "ala cart flight" If I had known that I had to pay for my first luggage and pay for my seat (if I wanted a choice of a window seat) I would have gone with another more expensive airline. I have a couple cards that allow free baggage and other perks, but I was not using those, to save my sister money since she was paying for the flight.It started at $278 round trip and ended costing me $390. I first chose a seat ($12.) near the back, and after a very stiff ride up to DC, I decided to upgrade to the $50. seat in the front for the ride back, to Orlando, thinking it had to be better and recline. It did not. Needless to say, I will not fly Frontier again."
Pros: "Hated it, they dinged me an extra 60 bucks at checking for my bags, staff were unhappy people. Most uncomfortable ride. All around worst flight I've had."
Cons: "Worst flight ever"
Pros: "It was a straight flight"
Cons: "Two hour delay"
Pros: "Great low price on flights. The flight we were on seemed new and looked clean. The seats were average comfort, no difference from other carriers."
Cons: "From start to end there will little things I feel could have been better. When I booked the flight it was easy and did not see that ALL luggage requires payment. Since most other carriers allow the 1 carry ons free... It would have been nice to know in advance and not be surprised at the counter by the juvenile ticket agent that although we are grateful she made us aware of the price for each piece of luggage/ carryons she also could have been more pleasant about it. Later as we were boarding a flight attendant cuts me off and is very audible about how there is no more room for carry ons. How did they run out of space? Isn't there overhead space for each seat and only 1 carry on per person? There is an extra surchage for carry ons ($10 more) to have them stowed with all the other suitcases in the end. On this flight another of the flight attendants is asking outloud how to pair her cell phone to the wifi... Really?? It just seems unprofessional, unprepared, disorganized. The service wasn't bad but it wasn't great. Is it too much to expect a higher level of service? As for the seats... They seemed new and I just wished they were a little more comfortable. A small adjustment like adding a foot rest on the back of the seat in front would be helful... Similar to the ones on charter buses the kind that can be adjusted folded up to stow beneath the seat and lowered when in use. (Just hoping the airline sees this and considers it.)"
Cons: "I always get the middle seat eventhiugh i check in early. It is so uncomfortable! Seats are thinner and there are no head rest."
Cons: "I couldn't make my flight, called 3 weeks before flight and what they offered me in return for a cancellation was basically useless,"
Pros: "Good flight. Crew was nice."
Cons: "Wish I had upgraded my seat for more room."
Pros: "Didn't crash. Flight crew was friendly and responsive."
Cons: "Checked baggage fee. Carry-on baggage fee. No in-flight entertainment. Extremely over-priced food/drinks. The seat-back tray-table was broken off and missing. One of the lavatories was out of commission. Will not fly Frontier again."
Pros: "It's cheap"
Cons: "It's cheap. The prices are low for a reason, taking a 5 hour flight on this airline probably wouldn't be my first choice."
Pros: "Crew did the best possible. The people working the flights are very good."
Cons: "You pay for EVERYTHING... The flight itself, checked bags, carryon bags, drinks, snacks... Heck you don't even get a measly complimentary vag of peanuts. But the clincher is SEATING. Yes you pay for it as well. And oh MY!!! Tiny tiny TINY space. And I am 5'2"!!! (And not overweight!!) come on frontier...."
