Cons: "I’m still sitting in Minneapolis so I would have liked to be at my destination. And I had to pay for the overnight accommodations."
Pros: "Entertainment was awesome. Although airlines are stingy with snacks, Delta had a good overall selection and very generous."
Cons: "Something that cant be changed overnight, however, there should be a little more Aisle space for folks pass through as my shoulder was getting beat up after every passing person and cart."

Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "One free beer"

Pros: "Flight was smooth, arrived early..crew was prompt and courteous."
Pros: "Preboarded and all went smooth and quick"
Pros: "Crew and entertainment options were great."
Cons: "Cabin was very loud, with jet engine noise. Could not block it out. Seats were not comfortable."
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 movies and tv selection. Seat next to me was empty, so that was great."
Pros: "Fly attenden alwas with a beautiful smile"
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: "Nothing particularly stands out. I did arrive safely."
Cons: "First class did not come with lounge access? Drinks were not cold. Bathrooms were falling apart and came with a disgusting odor. Time to retire these aircrafts."
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: "Smooth flight on new B757 with good entertainment system and Comfort+ seating legroom worth the extra cost but I was disappointed that the overhead storage bins above our seats were filled by pax from other seats before we arrived even though we were given priority boarding and the toilets were filthy."
Cons: "Boarding passengers should be more carefully controlled with amount and size of cabin luggage and where they place them. Toilets should be more frequently cleaned in flight."
Pros: "Flight was late leaving JFK. I paid extra for Comfort Plus and had the most uncomfortable seat ever. My back ached during and after the flight. Absolutely the worst seat ever that I have had flying. While it was a short flight we were supposed to get serviced during the flight, but there was no cabin service unless you were in 1st class. So much for the perks of Comfort Plus as there were none. Not even a glass of water. Wow! When we landed late obviously because we left late we were late and there was no ground crew to get our plane to the gate so we sat for over 1/2 hour on the taxi way waiting for ground crew to be available for us to get to the gate. To add insult of injury when we did get to go to the gate there was no gate available for use so we had to deplane in the rain down the emergency stairs. They said that if you had a problem with the steep stairs that they would make other accommodations. Probably would have been another delay so we all carefully went down the steep slippery stairs. I doubt that the stairs met any OHSA or safety requirements except for emergency issues. They were wet and slippery. This was the absolute worst trip that I have taken with Delta. It will seriously influence my future trip decisions."
Cons: "Not being on time. Not delivering service stated. Sitting on a taxi way for extra time. Having to disembark down steep slippery stairs, basically an emergency exit. This trip was late from start to finish."
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: "The plane, the seating, and the service was outstanding, great entertainment setup with the movies."
Pros: "That I landed safely"
Cons: "1st class was horrible."
Cons: "I have traveled with my luggage plenty of times through airports and the flight from washington to jacksonville, my luggage came back to me cracked and broken. I was surprised that Delta handling was worse than any of the cheaper flights I normally take and will not be checking any baggage with Delta again."
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)"
Cons: "Seeing as I’m still waiting for my flight, more than five hours later I am not inclined to rank it highly. This airport is an embarrassment and I will try my best to never fly Delta again. Weather is no excuse for this."
Pros: "My flight was canceled but Delta rebooked me on a flight leaving at about the same time as my original flight, which arrived just a little later than originally anticipated"
Cons: "My original flight was canceled"
Pros: "Flight was on a 787! Great plane"
Cons: "Food was mediocre for an international long haul fight, and was served by a completely indifferent staff! My prearranged seat choices were switched to a no recline rows and rebooking after a unnecessarily missed connection became 7 step comedy of errors ,aside from quality aircraft this felt like a budget operation."
Cons: "Delayed two hours"
Pros: "Got to my placs"
Cons: "Lol put the two fattest people next to each other"
Pros: "The fact that there were no snakes on this plane :-)"
Cons: "Same issue... there were no snakes on the plane :-/"
Pros: "Crew very cheerful and friendly"
Cons: "Still don’t know why I’m always zone 3. Also, need to stop people in main cabin from putting seats back. Either everyone would need to be like dominoes or basically they are just getting rid of what little space there is."
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."
Cons: "There delay"
Pros: "Pushed back early, short taxi, took off one minute after scheduled departure, smooth flight, landed a half hour before scheduled time."
Pros: "The crews were very friendly and everything went as planned. It was a nice flight."
Cons: "I didnt like that my flight was canceled and rebooked for no reason. This created me big problem in Athens that they couldnt find my ticket in delta. Also I didnt like that i had to stand and wait for 3 hours in the line because my flight was canceled but no one could let us know if there gonna be any flights within the day. I slept in the airport because i couldnt find a hotel to spend the night close to the airport. They were all full and i had no time to find one since I was waiting there for 3 hours with no informational. I slept on the floor and delta didnt even offer us a blanket. That was my worst trip ever."
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: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Nothing everything was fine"
Cons: "We were delayed. Then they boarded us and we left the gate to then sit out in the 108F sun. They knew before we pushed back the wheels up time was extended again."
Cons: "paying extra for leg room and checked bags"
Cons: "Delayed four hours"
Pros: "The crew was super nice, they offer me to change my seat to fly with my sister."
Cons: "The pilot"
Pros: "It got me to my destination safely."
Cons: "Very abrupt service. Not much room."
Pros: "Crew were amazing"
Cons: "WIFI please for the god sake it’s a transatlantic flight"
Pros: "787 seats have better legroom & recliner"
Cons: "Vegetarian food needs lot of improvement"
Cons: "My tray table was dirty. It had crumbs on it. The flight was on time which was awesome."
Cons: "The seats are extremely restrictive and in a aisle seat I had the gentleman sitting next to me with thighs touching and attendants brushing by me as I squished to left to avoid contact with him. Entertainment screen between center seat and window seat so I just didn't even try to look at it and mostly just leaned forward to have a little space. Also another inch or 2 was taken by person in front of me putting their seat back. With such restrictive space why is this even possible??? Flying has become ridiculous and I try not to as much as I can."
Pros: "Crew was good"
Cons: "Less gate changes"
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: "I'm expecting more from AA. We were delayed for 2.5 hr since we didn't have a pilot !!!!!"
Cons: "Speaker volume was too high."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Tiny seats, no snack or napkin with the drink. Noise in back."
Cons: "Too bad you paid$$$$ and they give you pretzels"
Pros: "Modern equipment (787)"
Cons: "8 emails from Kayak and 1 from AA warning of flight delay. But gate agents did not know anything about this and boarded us on schedule. So we sat for 90 minutes until the new aircraft was 'repaired'. Failed by a mile to make the connection. And I suppose I should have paid first-class fare, as then I would have made by connection?"
Cons: "Small, cramped seating"
Cons: "The legroom on AA's new planes is atrocious."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Crew was very helpful"
Cons: "the staff were not knowledgeable on visa requirements at checkin in Reno. As a result my checkin took long at the counter. Small CRJ700 plane was cramped though fast."
Cons: "All flights should include WiFi, and or entertainment, and better snack options. Flights out of and to Burlington are very expensive!"
Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "Tiny bathrooms"
Cons: "Today’s flight was extremely cold. Almost everyone in the plan was under the covers at some point."
Pros: "The flight crew was very friendly"
Cons: "I wish the flight was longer. :)"
Cons: "The flight was delayed an hour (which wound up being a 3.5 hour delay in total, with all the continual delays that pursued afterwards(, which would have made us miss our connecting flight back to our home destination. We switched flights in order to make it home at a decent hour and not spend our entire day and night in an airport. We arrived home and they did not transfer two of our three checked bags to our flight, thus making it highly inconvenient upon our arrival home with no luggage."
Cons: "The male flight attendant was incredibly rude, kept hitting my arms with his body with zero apologies. No manners when taking food and drink orders. Did not seem like he liked his job and in a customer service atmosphere this was extremely disappointing."
Cons: "Poor seating and lost my bag."
Pros: "Plane was new and entertainment was free. Great service too."
Cons: "American has improved a lot"
Pros: "Left on time, relatively comfortable considering I had already spent almost 9 hours on a previous flight, landed 30 minutes early"
Cons: "Mixed feelings about the entertainment app, I was pleased that something was available at all, however had the person sitting next to me not mentioned I needed an app to watch the in flight entertainment moments before it would have been too late to use the internet to download it, I would not have been able to use it, unless paying for a limited time package from AA to use the internet to download the app. A better job of advertising of the gogo app is needed more than the booklet in the seat pocket. Also I was only able to watch one movie, after that the system kicked me out saying high usage was making it not work for me. The gate changed a couple of times which had me trawling up and down the H and K concourses, could have done without that after the 9 hour journey I had already taken."
Pros: "Everything else was Fine on the flight..."
Cons: "...But having HBO NC-17 available on a public flight is uncalled for. Even though screens employ technology limit viewing from the side, the seats behind can see everything. We were thankful none of our kids were on this flight. Gratuitous sex scenes in abundance. No thanks American."
Cons: "Seat in front of me was broken in the reclined position so I had no leg room."
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."
Cons: "Plane had no Per-seat entertainment system."
Cons: "The touch screens were less than responsive. They weren't very touch sensitive."
Cons: "lack of ent. options"
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."
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: "Don't have tv in seats hard to watching one tv"
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: "Comfy seats, great service, was a smooth ride"
Cons: "my entertainment system wasnt working, the headphone jack was not working at all."
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: "Flights were on time and staff all were smiling and kind."
Cons: "Liked everything!!"
Pros: "Flight on time"
Pros: "The crew excellent,"
Cons: "Before boarding i felt lost had to ask multiple people where i had to go"
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"
Cons: "Horrible, inflight experience, customer service"
Pros: "The flight was on time. It was serviced well by very friendly flight attendants. I enjoyed it very much."
Pros: "The crew was very helpful and kind."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed over an hour and we had a connecting flight to Vegas that we were worried we were going to miss."
Cons: "flight was rebooked to a terrible time, the next day, had to spend over $300 for hotel, extra parking, extra meal, extra day on rental."
Cons: "We sat on the runway for more than an hour."
Cons: "Quick flight on time and no issues."
Cons: "Our bag was tagged as Priority, and was literally the last one off the plane. We clearly have different definitions of that word."
Pros: "The pilot and stewardess were very pleasant to chat with the stewardess was sweet, pleasant to chat with. All around enjoyable She likes her job as does the captain."
Cons: "I fell getting out of my small seat breaking my glasses and hitting my head on the top of seat’nnn"
Cons: "Never got to dc"
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!)"
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: "We liked our friendly and attentive flight attendants, and our safe travel to our destination. Thank you!"
Pros: "Everthing, except the typical cramped quarters."

Cons: "Tried to book legroom online and by phone but told it was all sold out; only to arrive and find out it wasn't and had to pay $40 more."
Cons: "I got an infection in my colon from the bacteria in the food I ate on the flight. I had acute diarrhea for four days and had to go to the hospital."
Pros: "Earlier than scheduled. Enough space."
Pros: "Security was quick and efficient. Boarding was extremely organized. The airline attendants were attentive. The pilot on United informed us when the possibility of hitting turbulence occurred so we could adjust accordingly. Overall, great travel experience."
Pros: "Flight crew in Dulles were very helpful in arranging for my daughter and I to sit together. Really appreciated their help."
Pros: "Large selection of movies to keep me entertained throughout a 13 hour flight."
Cons: "The food did not sit well with me. Seats became uncomfortable after a while, made it difficult to sleep."
Pros: "Boarding was quick"
Cons: "Intercom anouncements on late night flight. Way too many about the ball game"
Cons: "Good very poor Crew no interest to service, asked for landing immigration card, crew just answer haven't you got it? Then walk away"
Cons: "Old plane and was not clean."
Pros: "Very friendly staff. Easy flight, no issues."
Cons: "Little more leg room. Eye mask would have been nice."
Cons: "Paid extra for economy plus and still was too uncomfortable to sleep."
Pros: "All luggage had to go in the belly of the plane. Made boarding way faster. Clean aircraft with pretty comfortable seats."
Pros: "Meals, for a coach ticket, were surprisingly good."
Cons: "Lack of room in seats and no legroom."
Pros: "No connection anywhere, efficient direct flight, on time, and comfortable"
Cons: "There wasn't anything that I didn't like"
Pros: "The flight attendant was excellent. Much better than most of your other ones."
Pros: "Seating arrangement"
Cons: "The delay and the worry of the door condition"
Cons: "leg room and cabin temp was too high"
Pros: "Food was nice"
Cons: "My Bags were sent to wrong flight and now still waiting for my luggage. Trying to call the numbers to track my bags and the number is always busy. I don't know when I will have have my bags. It is very frustrating"
Cons: "For a trans-Atlantic flight this was a very small plane with very tight seats. The bathrooms smelled throughout the plane. Many seat back TVs didrn't function."
Pros: "Entertainment options were varied and kept the flight interesting."
Cons: "The check in process did not allow us to select seats until we got to the airport so we had to sit separately."
Pros: "The United crew were extremely pleasant and helpful"
Cons: "Lufthansa's website was confusing and their agents contradicted one another as we unsuccessfully attempted to reserve seats. No in flight entertainment was available"
Cons: "4 hr delay on the flight, terrible experience never flying with United again."
Cons: "Older plane. Entertainment was poor and limited. Food wasn'the good."
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: "Liked everything just wanted a better seating choice"
Cons: "The middle seat"
Pros: "Nice clean new plane. Good price."
Cons: "Seats that don't recline and are hard? Are you kidding me? Honestly how much money are you really saving with not putting any cushion in them? Did anyone try flying 4 hours sitting in those seats before you decided to put them in your planes? Wow. No complementary water or snacks? You are saving pennies and causing huge customer dissatisfaction."
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"
Cons: "Did not like the nickle and dime approach: 1) Pay extra to select a seat or get randomly assigned to a middle seat in the back 2) Pay for your checked bag; or pay more for your carry on. One or the other please, but not both! 3) Understand that all airlines charge for food these days, but water? Really?"
Pros: "early arrival. smooth flight"
Cons: "you charge for everything!"
Pros: "The crew was very courteous and attentive."
Cons: "Significant delay due to computer problem. Very uncomfortable seating."
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: "Delayed on leaving then again on arrival. Plus $60 to carry on a bag is extremely misleading. The seat was tiny and it did not make sense to pay another $50 each way for extra leg room. I read an article about how some airlines are making things so uncomfortable that it will inevitably force people to pay for comfort. This is an unethical business practice. People have been jailed for doing less damage to humanity."
Pros: "Finally had a Frontier flight that didn't have any issues. I don't fly them that much for that specific reason, but thankfully, this one was uneventful."
Cons: "I had to have my friend who was driving take my bag back to avoid paying like $60+ to check it. (Flew SWA to and Frontier back)"
Pros: "I knew about the extra cost for baggage so that was fine. If I didn't that might have been an issue, but after flying Spirit, Frontier is in another ball park. If there is ever a choice between Frontier and Spirit, I will always choose Frontier."
Cons: "Cheap plastic seats. Too long waiting time to pickup luggages. Low class customers"
Pros: "I like lower charges on changing bags"
Cons: "Luggage took 45 minutes to arrive"
Cons: "It was unfair to Charged us $90 for the carry on"
Pros: "I had a good experience overall with the flight being on time, the crew being kind, and the boarding process bring smooth."
Cons: "However, this was my first time flying Frontier and while I was happy with the flight price, I was unhappy to learn that I had to pay to carry on my bag ( a first), to select any seat, not just premium seating and pretty much everything else. I understand the need to stay competitive, but this felt like I was being nickeled and dimed for everything."
Pros: "It was my first frontier flight. I appreciate the rates that frontier offers. However, the charge you for everything else (seats, bags, food, etc). I can complain though especially withbthe rate I received for a riundtrip ticket. The flight was not bad, it was 1 1/2 so I was looking for anything fancy. A longer trip I definitely would pay for comfort and amenities. The crew was pleasant and the plane was clean."
Cons: "There wasn't much I didnt like other than the charge for everything, but as i mentioned before how can i complain when my roundtrip ticket was so inexpensive. If you have no bags then you are good. This is definitely a good airline for business travelers who are moving back and forth for work. Although there is no wifi."
Cons: "The price did not list the additional fee for carry-on. On my round-trip flight, the carry-on fee was 45% of the price of the ticket itself. That is ridiculous. I will never fly Frontier with carry-on again. Maybe just never fly with them generally."
Pros: "Arrived early"
Pros: "I liked that it was boarding was fast and courteous and professional."
Cons: "that I had to pay $40.00 for a small bag that I had to check it in."
Cons: "the fact that I had to buy my seat and pay for the bag after I had booked the flight was an eye opener. After everything was totaled up it was practically the same price as the bigger airlines. Very deceptive advertising . Your web site was horrendous. Navigating was odd.Never could find where to print my boarding pass. Was my flight confirmation the boarding pass? Come on people - how hard is it to 1. put "Boarding Pass" on the top of the page and 2. have a search box so people can type in what they are looking for would be a step in the right direction. Seats were uncomfortable but since I was only on a 2 hour flight it was doable."
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: "Plane was clean and looked new. Pleasant flight crew. Low fare was great!"
Cons: "Seating area cramped and uncomfortable. Narrow seats pressed me up against seat mate (awkward with a stranger). Tiny arm rests and tray table. Too close to seat in front of me with little leg room (and I am not tall). For this reason, I would not choose Frontier again if I had another option."
Cons: "I can tell you this is the most terrible flight experience ever. They are just interested in how to withdraw money from you. If you make a mistake, it is a great chance for them to make money. They have no intention to help you and to make you comfortable. You are just a cash cow to them. I swear I will not use this terrible flight."
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.)"
Pros: "The flight actually went to Miami"
Cons: "So who knew that cash was such a problem. Imagine your flight leaves at 6:00 am and you are running around being forced to purchase pre - paid debit cards to cover my luggage. Nightmare."
Cons: "They don't even go around and offer you a water. They're pretty much nazis about the personal item rule. If my personal item fits underneath the seat, it should be fine. I would quit my first day if I had to be a worker at Frontier dealing with angry customers like I witnessed."
Cons: "The seats were so uncomfortable, and they didn't even lean back."
Pros: "Getting off the plane and knowing therv are other options like Delta, United, Southwest ..."
Cons: "Extra fees: nickel and dimed to death, boarding agent in Dulles and gate agents in Atlanta lacked customer service skills."
Cons: "I arrived 43 minutes ahead of flight instead of 45, and was not allowed to check my bag, so I missed the flight. I have not seen my family in a year and the lady at the counter showed no remorse and offered no apologies. She kept an angry face asked me to please move out of the way for other customers. I will NEVER fly frontier again."
Pros: "Super easy and simple."
Cons: "Don't like not even being offered water on the flight"
Pros: "It's my first flight with frontier airlines and it's more than what I expected.."
Cons: "Leg room was very less and couldn't sit comfortably.. But for 2 hours flight.. It's manageable"
Pros: "Very cheap flight."
Cons: "Worst flight I have ever taken. Extremely uncomfortable. Small, hard seats; minimum leg room; tiniest "tray table" I have ever seen; no room to use my laptop. Other travelers in my row felt the same."
Pros: "Direct flight to Las Vegas"
Cons: "Once the aisle/window seat, cabing luggage, food/drink is paid for, the price is very close to standard rate. Cabin crew on the returning flight was rude to a mother who wanted to keep the child in her lap during take off. I felt the policy could have been explained more politely "baby crying is OK, I want him to be able to cry after the flight as well""
Cons: "No one told us that the setbacks on Frontier do not recline!"
Cons: "Charging for carry on bags and boarding passes. Non-participation in TSA Pre-check. Overall I felt scammed. Definitely willing to pay more for an experience where I don't feel deceived."
Cons: "No support from the crew at all... For the lady sitting next to me. She pucked the entire time and crew didn't care at all. She was not able to take the turbulence well, we were on row 27."
Pros: "Good flight. Crew was nice."
Cons: "Wish I had upgraded my seat for more room."
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...."
Cons: "It was not clear in the purchase of ticket that Frontier charges for carry-on bags. even at that, the cost of a carry on at $30, $40, or $60 is ridiculous!!!! they will lose many customers with that policy! check bags should not even cost that much let alone a small bag with a few items in it. I was very upset and wont fly them again"
Cons: "I like it."
