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: "I was traveling alone with my (cranky) infant son and the crew members were kind and accommodating. Though the flight was delayed by almost 2 hours, the crew worked quickly to ready the replacement plane and the pilot made up time and got us to San Jose as quickly and safely as possible."

Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Nothing everything was fine"

Pros: "Comfortable plane"

Cons: "Being scammed by the Chinese, China Southern"

Cons: "after reaching the destination, it took a lot to open the airplane's doors and letting people out"

Pros: "The crew was super nice, they offer me to change my seat to fly with my sister."
Cons: "The pilot"

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: "Nothing on this flight was good except for the Captain with constant updates on the never ending delays."
Cons: "This flight was delayed for nearly three hours due to a mechanical problem with the assigned aircraft. We did not get the reason for the delay until nearly 2 hours after the scheduled departure time. Then, when a new plane was assigned. The boarding agents were rude. The flight attendant was rude."

Pros: "Got me to my destination"
Cons: "Attendants were less than welcoming with NO sense of humor. I found an empty whiskey container in the area under the seat in front of me. When I jokingly said that I found it empty and could she refill it for me, the attendant went off on me, telling me that she was too busy and couldn’t take it"

Pros: "Dear American, stop lying to your passengers stating that the flights are full, when in fact, they are not. Customers are willing to pay for upgrades but you give them no way to do so."

Cons: "Speaker volume was too high."

Pros: "The tv and drinks"
Cons: "Being told why we’re delayed and then not being kept on board for so long once we arrived late"

Cons: "N/A"

Cons: "In a period of 20 minutes in the hour before boarding there were three gate changes. The last one was a change of terminal and gate. You have been doing this for years and you should know how to do this already."

Cons: "Too bad you paid$$$$ and they give you pretzels"

Cons: "Constant delays, wrongful promises of when/how long delays would take"

Cons: "I paid $70 for a seat upgrade, and it showed on my boarding pass as “EXIT” (exit aisle) with 6 inches of extra legroom when I purchased the upgrade in London. By the time I arrived in Dallas, the “EXIT” indicator on my boarding pass disappeared. When I boarded the plane there was no extra legroom and row 16 was not an exit row: rows 14 and 15 were. I endured a less comfortable trip, and now have to go through the pain and effort to get a refund. Good luck to me..."

Cons: "Small, cramped seating"

Cons: "Delayed"

Cons: "Rushing from gate to gate after sitting on the tarmac for 30 minutes after not having anything to eat on the four hour flight from PHL. Not being able to get anything healthy because the layover was reduced from 40 minutes to 5. GIVE US SOME FOOD DAMMIT!"

Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "Tiny bathrooms"

Cons: "First of all, this flight was not good; that was my rating for the first leg of CLE to DFW. DFW to SJC was a disaster due to weather and multiple equipment changes. Overall the flight was delayed 7 hours, from 4:50pm to 11:40pm. I opted to reschedule for the following morning -- and that flight ended up being delayed for an hour due to equipment changes and mechanical issues. Door-to-door I spent 30 hours getting from CLE to SJC."

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."

Pros: "Staff was great"

Pros: "Customer service was friendly"
Cons: "So uncomfortable"

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: "People actually boarded by group number"
Cons: "Sitting in premium economy still doesn't giive enough room to spread out papers and get work done. Out of four segments I only got upgraded once despite having 16 upgrades in my account."

Pros: "1, Crew are very attentive 2. Great seat"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "The staff that pushed us thru the ridiculous process of going thru customs , getting our bags checked again & raced us thru to our connecting fight was amazing !!!"
Cons: "Our connecting flight was too close given we were coming back from Mexico& had to go thru customs. The security at customs were so rude to my mother who was in a wheelchair! The customs checking process was a joke! We barely made to our flight running thru that entire airport pushing my mother in a wheelchair. I can't tell you how horrible the experience was for both of us!"

Cons: "Seat in front of me was broken in the reclined position so I had no leg room."

Cons: ""Parked" on tarmac for 25 minutes waiting to leave LAX. Arrived half an hour late"

Cons: "This flight transfer was totally ridiculous, and required me to exit security, take a bus, get through security again, take another bus, and then wait in a crappy gate with one single terrible food option. Whoever thinks this is a reasonable transfer ought to be subjected to it themselves before booking it for others."

Pros: "I had a family member enter the hospital 5 hours before take off. I got a full refund, even though I didn't have trip insurance."

Cons: "Plane had no Per-seat entertainment system."

Pros: "The plane was brand new and the crew were very nice. Entertainment system was well-done with good selection of movies. Even unedited movies!! Great."
Cons: "The plane was delayed for a half hour before it was marked as "delayed" and then it was delayed another half hour. If I had known it was going to be an hour late I would've been able to eat a proper dinner. They seemed to be out of every normal drink on the drink cart."

Pros: "Biscoff!"
Cons: "lack of ent. options"

Pros: "Staff was kind."

Pros: "Everything went smooth. Staff were professional and friendly"
Cons: "Nothing."

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)"

Pros: "Comfy seats, great service, was a smooth ride"
Cons: "my entertainment system wasnt working, the headphone jack was not working at all."

Cons: "No issues"

Cons: "THe reading light was broken"

Pros: "Boarding the plane from the back first saved longer queues. Unfortunately people cheat and the boarding officers don't send them back to the right queue. Toilets were clean. Staff excellent. I was glad all my flights were stuffed to the gunnels. Presumably that is best for the environment rather than lots of planes with fewer passengers in each."
Cons: "Passport control with new computer ID checks was fast. Baggage was slow coming. I booked through Netflights and they didn't book me a good seat. If I could have changed it myself they should have told me. On the way to Tampa on 3rd March I couldn't check in within 24 hours and had to wait half an hour while they changed our plane. BA used to do short science programmes which I loved. Shame these have finished."

Pros: "I had lots of space to my self"

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "We were so crowded. No leg room. The lady next to me was too big for her seat so it was hot and sweaty the whole way"

Pros: "Entertainment was not available for the latest Safari browser 10."

Cons: "It's not the first time that I was forced to gate check my carry on luggage. They claim that the cabinet in the plan is full while actually there is plenty of spaces for multiple luggages to be there. The crew was rude and refuse to explain it in an acceptable way. When I asked why cant I carry it when there is enough space, she simply says because you just can't. Do you want to take the plan or not! This is unacceptable."

Cons: "no food"

Pros: "I missed my previous flight, and even before that my day was going pretty bad. I was quickly routed to the desk to get a replacement ticket, and even though the flight was oversold, they had me wait around until the plane was ready to take off. A couple minutes after they shut the door of the boarding bridge, I was called and told to follow one of them. It turns out a couple of people were headed to the right city in the wrong country."

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."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight was pushed out at least 5 times before departing. Once we even boarded and were told to get off the plane after the delay became too long, "for security purposes." The pilot was completely unprofessional - he tried to make light of the situation. At first it was funny but the jokes soon got old. There was little attempt to to update as the delay kept getting longer and longer. We learned more about the delay from our phone apps than from the crew. Most idiotic and incompetent group I've ever flown with."

Cons: "Service"

Pros: "I loved how quickly we departed and arrived at each destination!"
Cons: "The boarding process was terrible. People forgetting to even stand in line for their boarding groups getting to cut ahead of those whose group is currently in the process of boarding. That should not be allowed. It's rude and disrespectful to other passengers/customers."

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."

Cons: "When I fly from San Jose to Atlanta they didn’t charge for my luggage, while coming from there they charged me 60$ for my small backpack so I don’t want to go in this flight for ever bad service"

Pros: "Liked everything just wanted a better seating choice"
Cons: "The middle seat"

Pros: "Nothing."

Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Cheap flight"
Cons: "Bag fee"

Cons: "Terrible service, unprofessional, impractical and unreasonable airline that should never be suggested."

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."

Pros: "I país for seat 25...$12."
Cons: "I would not FL y any more for Frontier"

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: "Poor quality airline. Will never ride the airline again."
Cons: "Frontier service."

Pros: "Price of fare."
Cons: "On Frontier, you get what you pay for, bare bones transportation from point A to point B. Seat positions were fixed, and Frontier have clearly put a great deal of effort into cramming as many people as possible into the aircraft. Food and drink, any did and drink, were available only for purchase. There 's no entertainment, even for purchase."

Pros: "When all the add ons are factored it is no cheaper than delta."

Pros: "Nothing good, bad baggage handling experience, miss commitment. Overall it was pretty bad."

Pros: "Frontier has the best leg room that I have encountered flying. Our flight however had a transfer in Orlando from dc to San Diego that was not clear on our inteniary or tickets which we only found out when we boarded in dc! Otherwise frontier offers lower fares but seats don't recline and sleeping on cross country flights are rough"

Pros: "Picking out seat"
Cons: "No free snacks"

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "I booked this ticket about a month ago. I was traveling to va to drive in a car race. I rented a race car, had it delivered to the track, payed my entry fee and just had to show up at the race track to drive. Total for the weekend was about 3k$ The day of my flight around 3 in the afternoon, I attempted to check into my flight. There seemed to be something wrong with frontiers website as I kept getting a red error message. I made about 15 attempts from two different computers. I kept getting an error. There was clearly a problem on Frontiers end. I would have to check in at the airport. I do not check luggage and being a red eye, I arrived at the Frontier kiosk an hour before my flight (plenty of time). I made multiple failed attempts to print my boarding pass before waiting in line. After the wait in line, the very unfriendly Frontier lady scolded me for not arriving earlier and said I would have to wait to speak with the manager as she could not help me. After another wait the manager told me that the flight was oversold and the tickets were given out based on when people checked in and all he could do was put me on the same flight tomorrow. Which was pointless because my race was at 9am the next day. I am not sure how this is even legal? It certainly is not fair, I will never book a flight on frontier again, I may not even use kayak. I am out thousands of dollars, and very mad about everything to do with this."

Pros: "The pilot, because we did land"
Cons: "Hiddend fees for everything. (2 carry on cost $120 round Cancelled flight 6 days prior, no other options and had to change airports to fly the same day to keep the planned events booked months earlier. Lied to by customer service on cancellation and Frontier took no responsibility for their ridiculous actions and could care less we were stranded in a different state with no way to get back...(without switching airports or book using a different airline at a $500+ seat price.) Just awful and will go out of my way for friends and family to NEVER fly frontier again."

Cons: "40 minutes and still no bags"

Cons: "this company does not respect the customer. For both flights delay of more than 6 hours."

Cons: "2 hours on tarmac. Yuck."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "That we were not treatiwith respect, we still had time to check in and the front desk man said that he could print out boarding passes but that we could not take our bag with us, we suggested he sent it through another plane later in the day but he refused and this time he decided not to print our passes."

Pros: "I'd rather take a shower at auschwitz than fly frontier again"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Cons: "-Little table to eat. -Seats and rows way too narrow -They charge for carry ons, snacks, and probably air. It was ridiculous how I was nickled and dimes. -The wait to drop the bags was excessive >25 minutes at IAD. This is sad being that I paid ahead of time."

Cons: "that I had to pay $40.00 for a small bag that I had to check it in."

Pros: "Got us there ahead of schedule."
Cons: "Pack them in like sardines."

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: "Super easy and simple."

Cons: "No one told us that the setbacks on Frontier do not recline!"
