Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "The pilot could have informed us of a delay getting to our gate. Instead, we sat on the apron in the plane for 15 minutes before the flight attendant informed us of the reason for the delay."
Cons: "Delayed flight."
Cons: "Boarding was very slow and agents switches my seat without notifying me. Had to wait in long line twice."
Pros: "Phone charging outlets, but this is now quite common with international flights."
Cons: "Hospitality: Flight attendant crew lacking hospitality and services to guests. It was a 2 pm flight and they all seemed either burnt or unhappy. The services was a bare minimum. Unfortunately, we have seen far better services with other international airlines."
Pros: "Quick boarding because not many passengers."
Cons: "Need larger luggage room. Lots of people were waiting because a guy just could not fit his luggage in overhead bin. Airplanes are very old."
Pros: "Nothing was exceptional"
Cons: "The entertainment system was terrible. Kept getting thrown off in between while watching a movie multiple times"
Pros: "The air conditioning?"
Cons: "Nobody ever wants to be advertised to (use our credit card?) after paying a few hundred bucks for the ride. I don’t care how many other airlines are doing it, cut it out."
Cons: "Great flight back"
Cons: "Not that the airline had any control, but the turbulence was the worst I'd experienced (and longest-lasting) in the 40 years I'd been flying. The crew kept everyone comfortable, informed, and safe."
Cons: "For the first 1.5 hours of the flight one of the flight attendants was talking bad nonstop about previous customers. Then when we landed there was a passive attitude in her tone when she told everyone to exit the plane quickly because they had a flight leaving right after and needed to clean the aircraft in a timely manner. Overall a poor experience traveling to San Diego Alaska flight 1164 September 12 6:00am departure."
Cons: "It left 3 hours late . No free email or Facebook"
Pros: "It was a smooth flight - crew was really nice."
Cons: "Nothing - it was all good"
Pros: "The crew was nice and they had a nice selection for movies"

Pros: "Flight from Newark to SanFran was smooth, and entertainment options were great!"
Cons: "Crew wasn’t overly welcoming (though certainly not rude at all), and boarding was rushed at the gate just to stand in huge line waiting to get on aircraft."

Cons: "I had a window priority seating, and without notifying me they change my seat to a middle seat and when I called to change it was pretty much told, no other seats available... Too bad."
Pros: "For such a short flight, it was an amazing trip to SFO. Friendly crew and service was top notch."
Pros: "Alaska crew and free refreshment."
Cons: "That you allowed me to choose seats together so I could sit with my daughter and then that all got thrown out the window and we had to sit apart departing and arriving. I bought these seats 5 months in advance on a barely half full plane. It's not right."
Cons: "Seats are hard and transmit all movement from row behind"
Pros: "Flight was on time and the staff was friendly."
Cons: "Crew was trying to be funny but it fell a little flat. Seats were small and cramped, no place for luggage overhead. Poor selection of beverages."
Pros: "Boarding was fast. Waited less than 10 minutes for my luggage."
Cons: "First time traveling with Alaska Airlines. I was traveling with my husband and son(5yrs old). Neither my husband or i were able to sit next to my 5yr old. I have travel with other airlines and they automatically put one of us to sit with my 5 yr old."
Pros: "Efficient- friendly staff at the counter and on the plane!"
Pros: "Flight attendants were great. Didn't have to wait long if I asked for refreshments."

Pros: "The in flight entertainment tablet I rented ($10) was really nice. It had some very new movies, fun games and more on it. Most of the flight crew was kind and polite, minus one woman who seemed to hate her job and the airline. I was pleased that the flight wasn't canceled as many others into PDX had been that day due to an ice storm. Felt safe even with turbulence and threat of a slippery landing."
Cons: "One crew member, an older woman, seemed really bitter. She openly expressed frustration with Alaska in front of passengers on multiple occasions and was very rude and brusque with us customers. She made me feel like a nuisance for even just being on the flight. Otherwise the seats were just so small and uncomfortable. It was a long flight to feel smushed and have a sore tailbone from the total lack of padding."
Pros: "Love your direct flight to Santa Barbara.wish you had more than 1 daily."
Cons: "Long walk to terminal on return,glad it wasn't raining. I was in back . Crew was a little loud talking to each other on last stretch of flight. They kept opening and closing the overhead bins during the flight . I have no idea why ,but it was somewhat annoying."
Pros: "Enjoyable professional friendly staff - too windy bumpy for service except for water. Very pleased with everything. Appreciated words from pilots tonwgat to expect for weather-"
Pros: "Flight was decent and stewardess were kind."
Cons: "The flight changed from Alaska to Hawaiian airlines in San Diego. They were in different terminals way to close in time to each other. We had to leave security and go back through tsa to get to the connecting flight and missed boarding. We got to the gate at 10:05 with a flight of 10:15. They knew we were coming but still have our seats away. They told us that they couldn't delay the flight and let us on the plane. We had to wait 24 hours for the next flight with no way to get anywhere and no hotel. We slept in the airport and had to go through security again just to get to our flight. Once we boarded and were seated the gangway moved away from the plane. We waited and then the gangway came back to the plane and 4 passengers were taken off the flight. How can they delay the flight to take people off but not to let us on the plane the previous day?! My mother was born in Hawaii and our family was going to get birth place where she lived and I missed that opportunity because they wouldn't let us board because it would delay the flight. It would have delayed a 6 hour fligh for 10 minutes. Our luggage made it on the flight but we didn't. I'm extremely disappointed in the way it was handled by the ticket counter agents."
Pros: "She was outstanding and very helpful in dealing with Ana issue I had with a further booking on American Airlines"

Cons: "The only"
Pros: "Because I did get HERE on time."
Cons: "When you book a trip. You never figured in the plane having problems. So after a Two hour delay.on the first flight it was was very tight to make the other flight. But they were nice enough to hold the the other flight from everyone to make it aboard"
Cons: "I will not fly Horizon again"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Flight attendants not friendly"

Pros: "Video access"
Cons: "Too hot, too crowded"

Pros: "Like the smaller contingent of passengers. Boerding a lot quicker and simpler. Captain gave us some interesting details about plane and its capabilities."
Cons: "Exit row seats were were very uncomfortable, very little padding, although there was plenty of legroom. No snacks or entertainment. WiFi did not work."
Cons: "I was the very first person in line for Zone 3, and they automatically told me I had to gate check my bag, which would mean adding at least 20 minutes when I landed. I took it on the plane anyway; and there was PLENTY of space in the overhead compartments. This feels like I’m being treated as a second class citizen because I was unwilling to be nickel and dimed for seat or boarding upgrades. It’s infuriating"
Pros: "Entertainment on first flight"
Cons: "Food, no smoking at Minneapolis airport"
Pros: "It was great because I was able to get an aisle seat."
Cons: "Like it all"
Pros: "Delta personnel were very pleasant/friendly"

Pros: "Delta is the best airline by far."
Cons: "My bag did not make the connection even though there was almost 4 hours layover... :("
Cons: "I understand gate changes happen, but I got 4 texts switching the gates back and forth. Is that necessary?"
Cons: "Was not a wheelchair waiting for Wallace."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very nice and the boarding crew. From the time I walked up to the counter at LGA to the time I exited the plane in CLT, I was treated so kindly and with such respect. Kudos to the Delta Crew."
Cons: "The FLIGHT!!!!! There were delays. Scheduled take of time was 6:59 PM. We took off at 735 PM. Once I was on the plane, I started kicking myself in the you know what because I knew immediately I was scammed. I had purchased a 1st Class ticket for $400+, only to find that my comfort would be the equivalent of that if I purchased a ticket in economy. My long legs would still be cramped. For the past few years, I have been purchasing 1st class for it's spaciousness. On this flight, on the RCJ700, I did not fly comfortably. The space was very tight, and I was able to stretch my legs as if I sat in economy. This was by far, my most uncomfortable flight ever. SMH; A WASTE OF MY HARD EARNED MONEY!!!!!"
Pros: "But, this wasn't bad at all, even though we were on the very last seat of the plane. We were next to one of the flight attendants during take off and landing and she was very kind and we were speaking with her. The flight was smooth"
Pros: "We spent 90 min in line to take off on the tarmac. Pilot kept us informed. Crew were very pleasant."
Cons: "requirement to wait for seat assignment until at the gate"
Pros: "On Time"
Pros: "Delta made sure my husband and I had seats together and my husband was thrilled to have a window seat. We took off and arrived earlier than scheduled so we didn't have to run to catch our connecting flight."
Cons: "Everything was perfect. Nothing negative to report."
Pros: "The flight was on schedule and landed early, and the pilot landed that plane very gently. It was quite impressive."
Cons: "I purchased a first class ticket in hopes that I would have a lot more comfort during the flight. It took me quite some time to get comfortable. The seat was ok, but I found the pillows to be very small and flat. I needed multiple pillows. The head rest was not adjustable, so I also found this to be uncomfortable. Usually when I fly AA, the headrest is adjustable. My final dislike was that the beverage selection was limited. I'm quite sure there was plenty of alcohol, but what about those customers who do not drink alcoholic beverages? I asked for hot chocolate, there was none. I asked for hot tea with honey, there wasn't any. So all in all my flight was okay, but that is solely because of the flight attendant and pilot. They did their jobs and they did an excellent job."
Pros: "The crew was great, boarding and exit went smoothly."
Cons: "Seats are tight, not very roomy, I'm 6' tall and my knees were in the seat in front of me. The delta studio entertainment app didn't work, couldn't use the internet at all."
Pros: "I got a seat in the exit row with lots of leg room. The entertainment that I didn't use offered a great selection with very recent movies, etc."
Cons: "I didn't like that I had to take a bus to my terminal. I didn't like the fact that my gate was changed more than five times. I didn't like that my flight time was changed more than 15 times with no reason why until boarding time. I didn't like the fact that I did not get a seat assignment until boarding the plane. I didn't like the fact that they couldn't manage to scramble another plane and crew, but instead forced us to wait over four hours for one that was stuck somewhere else in the country."
Pros: "Speed and comfortable kind bars were a nice touch"
Cons: "Luggage went elsewhere"
Pros: "Plane left 2 hours late."
Pros: "The crew & my seat"
Cons: "The movie offerings & the snack offerings."
Pros: "The boarding process was very well done. Gate agent and flight attendants on top of their game. This is how it is supposed to be done. Thank you."
Cons: "Although weather played a part in the poor experience, it wasn't the only factor. Delta was unprepared."
Pros: "They had aircraft flying to my destination. All other airlines were booked for the time and the destination I had in mind."
Cons: "Long Delays, Over Booked Flights, Customer Service is not helpful, Wrong info delivered by Customer Service, No boarding gate info, Luggage was damaged, and I was charged a large premium with no added value. Delta sold me a 1st class flight because of their delays and overbooking their flights. This was because they could not fulfill the ticket I had. This was Delta's solution to their problem caused by them. I still have no idea why the flights were delayed. On top of all this, I overheard a walk-on pilot ask if there was room for him to catch a lift home. The flight attendant responded with "absolutely this flight is not full at all, you can sit right here". Wait I had to pay 200 bucks extra for an overbooked flight and you are having your Delta representatives say different. This was my first and last trip with Delta. I spent 1000 dollars for round trip ticket from Seattle to Spokane WA. No way is that OK or acceptable under any circumstances to treat your customers like this. The best part about all of this is, I have sent feedback and called customer service to talk to a manager to hear the blame put on back on me. Perception is reality Delta. Awful service, awful prices, awful care, awful communication, and awful value for the money."
Cons: "even though I paid for premium economy, the seating was still cramped shoulder to shoulder"
Cons: "I paid for the upgrade to Delta Comfort Plus for an aisle seat & for some reason they reassigned our seats and I got Putin a middle seat. It was not what I paid for and it was very uncomfortable. If people pay to upgrade to specific seats we should. It be reassigned to whatever seat they want to put us in."
Pros: "I was upgraded to First at the gate. The crew was very professional and friendly. Food mini-minimal, but OK."
Cons: "On this A320 craft, old style, the First class seats are a joke. I had seat 2B. The pitch is apparently less than in the Comfort+ rows. The passengers in 1A and 1B started reclining even before departure, and during the whole flight. For me and my neighbor, with that seat on our chest, it was impossible to reach down to the seat-back pocket, not to mention to the bag stowed under the seat in front. To get out of the seat, I almost could not get my legs through the 5-in. interval between the back of the front seat and the irremovable armrest. I shook the passenger sleeping in 1B rather violently a couple times. The lady in seat 2B apologized, but she had to climb and put her feet on my seat to get out of hers, there was really no other way. Delta needs to address this ridiculous situation of their First Class seats urgently."
Cons: "We didn't try the entertainment."
Cons: "The aircraft was older and visibly dirty in the corners. The baggage took well over the guaranteed 20 mins."
Pros: "The gate agents were courteous and efficient. The flight crew was very attentive. The pilots were clear in their announcements. Even though we were held up by sheer plane/ground traffic, we managed to still get back home early!"
Cons: "At one point on the initial flight, the cabin got so cold that I had to put on a jacket."
Cons: "Due to last minute and absurd changes made to my itinerary by Delta without my knowledge, I was not on this flight."
Pros: "Boarding was not a problem at all! ."
Cons: "The pilot was very rough maneuvering the aircraft. Starting from take off the pilot took off from a halt and accelerated so fast that I believe takeoff took 3sec or less. Also taxi into the airport about to land His maneuvering was Preety rough compared to the other two delta pilots that were perfect. There wasnt any food offered."
Pros: "The checkin agents did their best. Flight attendantw very helpful when overhead bins were full."
Cons: "No food/beverage service. Agent at gate desk visibly tired and short with customers, but not rude."
Pros: "Cabn service"
Cons: "First plane's engine caught on fire."
Pros: "It was a short smooth ride, no delays and the crew was nice. The snack was fine."
Cons: "I wish they offered drinks more. Like a bottle of water along with something else to drink."
Cons: "Flight left late, once in Charlotte sat on taomac 20 min, waited 20 min for our forced to check carry on and missed our connecting flight. They gave away our seats and were not helpful. Eventually wander to a customer service desk. Anitbef ling wait. Finally got a flight out."
Pros: "It was okay"
Cons: "We loaded late and than sat in the plane awhile before we left. No explanation was given. Once we arrived in Charlie we sat on the tarmac for 20 min. No explanation. Than we waited 20 min fir our carry on luggage to arrive. We were told we had to check it. By the time we arrived at our gate they had given outlet seats away. They were not very polity ir helpful."
Pros: "the crew and the people at the desk for boarding were great. the app helped me keep up with the changes"
Cons: "delays and changing gates"
Pros: "Both American flights (on Airbus 321, I think) I've taken in the past two weeks had comfortable seating with great legroom. My knees were not knocking the seat in front of me! Seat width also comfortable. Not sure how I lucked up on both flights!"
Pros: "They delayed 5 times and we're never honest about departure time. Then lost my luggage. They told me that I will need to go back.to the airport to pick up the luggage which is unacceptable."
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Cabin was clean. Flight attendants were courteous."
Cons: "Their snacks were merely a cookie which was okay, but not what I would have wanted."
Pros: "Extra blanket and pillow. Empty seat to sleep in. Fairly clean interior for the most part."
Cons: "The plane supposedly was running out of fuel, which I've never heard of such thing. So we had to go down 20mns before reaching Charlotte to a nearby airport to get fueled up and then went back in the air. The whole ordeal made me miss my connection flight to Barcelona! And I wasn't able to get on a flight until the next day. To make matters worse I had to flight back to New York to catch the flight to Barcelona! Unbelievable. I was beyond disappointed. I chose American Airlines for a reason, a good one at that. Yet this happened."
Cons: "Boarding was confusing. By the time groups 5&6 boarded the first groups had not finished and there were no longer any lines to control the crowd, just people trying to get on board to assure overhead cabin space."
Pros: "Timely and prepared flight."
Pros: "Very efficient crew. Pleasant enough"
Cons: "Bumpy flight, obviously not something that could be helped (tho the pilot came on and said he was hoping to find a smoother altitude, greatly appreciate him trying!)"
Pros: "Boarded quickly. Seats were comfortable. Friendly flight attendants. It was a quick flight, no entertainment used. Only had a cookie and water for food. Don't know about the other things."
Pros: "The flight was fast and mostly smooth, you can't control turbulence. The flight attendants were very friendly. Turned out to be a great trip."
Cons: "Nothing was bad overall. It was a very nice flight"
Pros: "The crew was super friendly and got lots to eat. Flight was pretty much on time."
Pros: "Flights attendants were super friendly and the plane was very clean"
Cons: "seats are uncomfortable"
Pros: "The planes and staff were excellent!!!"
Cons: "Hated the layovers!!!"
Cons: "The first class flight attendants were VERY RUDE to the passengers getting on the plane, especially the male flight attendant. While serving drinks, instead of saying things like "pardon me", they would say "move" (as was said directly to me) and get out of the way" (as I herd him say to another passinger). Very disrespectful way to treat a person, let alone a paying customer! Btw...I am a middle class 5' 11" tall college educated male."
Pros: "They checked my carry on"
Cons: "Seemed unprepared my movie screen nonfunctional"
Cons: "The plane was 2 hours late . It was in the hsngar. They said they were fixing the plane. It was an old plane. No Screen anywhere . It was 5.5 flight across country. Only pretzels. I will try not to fly American again."
Cons: "I paid $75.00 to take an earlier flight and Americans crew error nullified this. I feel ripped off."
Pros: "Food was better than expected - not a fan of airline food, but this was not so bad."
Cons: "Finnair was thru American Airlines. American had only a couple of check in windows open when we got to the Frankfurt airport - nowhere near enough to handle the number of people checking in."
Pros: "Polite and professional:-)"
Pros: "I liked the fact that it was a smooth flight, my row was totally empty, which enabled me to pass out like a little baby. I forgot that I was on an airplane and not an air mattress. Kudos to the pilot!"
Cons: "Eddie Murphy wasn't on my flight"
Pros: "The crew, as always"
Cons: "Being sectioned off from 1st class"
Pros: "Flight attendants were nice"
Cons: "Being charged for everything. Wifi was free for my sister on Delta."
Pros: "The blanket and pillow, good selection of movies."
Cons: "Maybe the food quality could have been better"
Pros: "the flight was on time"
Cons: "the plane was small the plane was not comfortable"
Pros: "Well.....it was canceled so I had to go to charlotte after to London and at the end at Rome and every one of them had delay's"
Pros: "The comfort"
Cons: "The food i have a pretzel bag that someone throw in the floir step on it and the give it to me"
Pros: "Individual screens worked well, food was good."
Cons: "Flight attendants with carts bumped my boyfriend's shoulder repeatedly, nearly every time they went by, without ever apologizing. They were also really rude when we asked for additional beverages. I travel very frequently, and I was shockedz"
Pros: "Nice boarding head schedule friendly service."
Cons: "Poor entertainment but other than that it was a great flight until we got to Charlotte the ✈it was thousands of feets to make touchdown went took off again a was scary moment for all the passengers."
Pros: "I liked that I landed in time to get to my next flight."
Cons: "I didn't like that I had a child kicking my seat back the whole flight and that the in flight movie that I purchased skipped more than it played."
Cons: "The delay"
Cons: "The AA employee at the counter in Batoj Rouge informed me that I would miss my connection at Charlotte Airport due to a delayed in the incoming flight. Hebgave me the option to flight the next day or flight the same day, and after a 2 hour delay flight to Charlotte where I would be provided a hotel room and a meal for the night. I asked several times if that information was confirmed and he repeatedly said yes. At my arrival at Charlotte Airport (near midnight) every AA employee said that they did NOT have any more hotels. It was obvious that everything was a staged lie since over 100 people had to spend the night in one of the the terminals where we were provided a pillow and a blanket. I am terribly disappointed for the lack of transparency in AA. I was told my some friends that they also have had experiences like that at the same Charlotte Airport. You have damage once again your reputation and from no own in will expect THE WORST from AA."
Pros: "Arrived home safely"
Cons: "Arrived very early due to logistics and our flight was not leaving for 9 hrs and the AA Representative would only put us on a earlier flight if we paid a large fee, so we waited then the original flight was delayed 2 hours and we nearly missed our connection in another city, it all could have been avoided if a little flexability and care were involved to put us on a earlier flight"
Cons: "Zero flexibility"
Pros: "Crew was very nice and welcoming. I enjoy having more choices then just pretzels and peanuts for a snack."
Cons: "The boarding process seems like it is hectic and not very well planned. A lot of people still standing in line that are not actually boarding yet because they are not in the correct group. This made it hard to actually board and know where the line was. Once on the plane the seats just seemed very uncomfortable."
Pros: "Staff were efficient and helpful."
Cons: "I was told at 7;15 am that the flight was delayed until 11:30. Unfortunately, I was already at the airport as my original flight was at 9:00. Luckily, there was another flight that would get me to my final destination at the same time as what I booked."
Cons: "Flight delayed waiting for connecting flight to clear customs. No communication on the delay just kept delaying. Doubt will wait for me next time connection delayed."
Pros: "OK boarding process, on time"
Cons: "Sub basic service on board, old plane"
Pros: "Reasonable efficiency once airborne"
Cons: "Having a first officer show up 55 minutes late is unacceptable. Many suffered missed connections."
Pros: "Initial flight delayed about an hour because of mechanical. We did barely make a connection in Charlotte. But it seems traveling from or to Roanoke can be very Chancey"
Cons: "No inflight entertainment"
Cons: "no wifi"
Cons: "Very rude gate crew, the women was clearly having a bad day.. Would have been nice if the the plane was checked out prior to boarding so we didn't have to waste and hour+ de-icing then fixing the plane. had to run to barely make connecting flight."
Pros: "It was a short flight"
Cons: "A safe, quiet set of flights. Nothing really unusual, which is a good thing. US airlines suck badly in cuisine and this trip reinforcedji"
Pros: "I watched a good movie."
Cons: "The plane seemed old. Food was pretty lousy. Hummus was dry, crackers were stale."
Pros: "Friendly crew, smooth flight"
Cons: "Snacks are never good. No TV."
Pros: "everything was on time and no one got kicked off of the flight!"
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "Waiting an hour to take off"
Pros: "Boarding went well, Flight was smooth,"
Cons: "Not only the Gate, but the terminal was changed with out advance notice. I got to Terminal C- listed on my boarding pass, only to check the screen to find they switched to Terminal A, which meant exiting the terminal C and taking a bus to Terminal A. Only as I was boarding the plane did I receive a late text telling me there was a Terminal change. The flight attendants passed me by with the drink cart and never came back to service me"
Pros: "Nothing because they didn't allow us to board the flight because there was 20mins left til the plane departed. Also the tickets were bought with 24hrs and they didn't refund or give us a flight credit."
Cons: "They didn't allow us tothe tickets were bought with 24hrs and they didn't refund or give us a flight credit."
Cons: "Our seats were Infront of the emergency exit, couldn't relax. I'm 6'6" , so the incline if the back isn't comfortable and we couldn't recline. We had asked switching seats on our flight to Spokane because we were given the same seats. The airline told us seats were chosen at random and they couldn't control them so we had 4 legs of our two flights stuck in no reveling seats. I was very disappointed."
Pros: "Wonderful experience the entire way! I did fly first class as I've decided if I have to fly all the way across country I want to be very comfortable, and I was! Thank you United!"
Pros: "The service was food"
Cons: "Lack of leg room!!! After my bicycle box was inspected they failed to secure my bike the way I had it in the box. Bike was flipping around in box. Bent rear brake calipers. Bent brake hoods. Rear skewers were uncoupled. No way to treat a $10,000 bike! Very upset!"
Pros: "On time. Boarded smoothly. Pleasant crew. Snacks and beverage included. No cost to check bag."
Cons: "Seat was uncomfortable."
Pros: "All of this trip went well, all on time, great service, no worries!"
Cons: "I do not appreciate spending several hundred dollars on a connecting flight with initially a 10 hour layover, and a delay of almost two hours."

Pros: "I enjoyed the free United wifi because I could follow the flight progress in real time."
Cons: "They need free wifi!"
Cons: "Will never fly United again if I can help it. Friday afternoon out of CLT was cancelled and rescheduled for Sat afternoon, we had a Friday night wedding and had to get to Chicago. Agents were completely unhelpful over the phone, went to the airport agents at ticketing counter were also unhelpful and threw up their hands like there was nothing they could do to help us. Finally had to switch to Delta and got to Chicago at 1AM EST, missed the wedding."
Cons: "Late arriving crew. Screw up because the ground crew forgot to throw a switch. So we left even later. Got to Charlotte and United had forgotten to request a gate."
Cons: "We waited all evening for a flight that kept being changed and then finally canceled. We were given several reasons from bad weather, mechanical problems, and crew out of hours. We should hv been transferred to another plane sooner without having to stay overnight with no change of clothes or personal items."
Pros: "The crew was awesome and the flight wasn't bad at all"
Cons: "It was suggested that I didn't bring my carry on with me so I left it to be voluntarily checked and it came back ripped"
Pros: "Nice clean plane, very friendly and helpful crew."
Cons: "The hour delay."
Pros: "The flight ran ahead of schedule and the crew was polite and efficient."
Cons: "The flight attendant woke me up to ask if I wanted a drink."
Cons: "Delta airline always delayed. My flight was delayed 3 hours then cancelled twice. they don't give you anything beside rescheduling your flight. Sucks. I hope to god I never have to deal with them again!!"
Pros: "I appreciate the fact that caught the issue with the aircraft while it was on the ground."
Cons: "I don't appreciate a the fact that you made me late for church. Wouldn't have been such a big deal if i wasn't the church's organist."
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Pros: "In flight entertainment. Was able to watch a movie for free."
Cons: "Service is not what it used to be!"
Pros: "Getting to Charlotte"
Cons: "Plane dirty. Windows dirty. Extremely bumpy. Seats clostraphobic. Sat too long leaving"
Pros: "I did not use any entertainment other than my iPad. The plane seemed to have more leg room than most. Friendly staff."
Cons: "The rough air over Denver. Glad to have a really good pilot. The snack mix is awful, nearly tasteless. Would prefer cracjers, peanuts, cookies, or pretzels."
Pros: "First off - thank you for putting food back onto what you offer when people fly united. It's a drink and a small snack. It's not much to ask, so I appreciate them putting that back in. I also liked the wifi which allowed me to check where my flight was in the air for free. Overall, I will say united is much improved from where it was - though I'd appreciate some free entertainment."
Cons: "Boarding was a little bit of a mess with our flight. We had a LOT of people on standby that were standing in the boarding lines because no one was communicating to them where they should be and where to go. This is something that should be worked on by them."
Cons: "I did not like having to check my carry on after all. I was told the overheads were full so I could get it in Baggage after the trip. For health reasons I did not want the trip to baggage and I did not want to risk my bag being lost. I drive 3 hrs o the airport and I did not want to drive back or wait 3 days for a lost bag to be sent to me as I have before. The person at the gate was rude when I said you won't lose my luggage will you? he said Probably. I said really, and he said well you did ask."
Pros: "Friendly helpful courteous"
Pros: "I was surprised on how clean the plane was, considering it was an express. The attendance were pleasant as well."
Cons: "How small the snack bag is."
Pros: "The plan took off and landed. Not much positive about united."
Cons: "Feel like a number. Crowded zone two line (Platinum and below and all the darn credit card holders. Flight was delayed for no crew, then in was maintenance issue, which could not be addressed until the pilot was there. Ugh. Inefficient."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very pleasant."
Pros: "I liked getting to my destination safe and back safe."
Cons: "I didn't like the pulling off or the landing or the rocking while flying."
Pros: "Flight was not only on time, but early both ways."
Cons: "Gate change at Newark."
Pros: "Everything worked out just perfect"
Cons: "No snacks served"
Pros: "Kayak did a great job with updates."
Cons: "United has failed me once again. Delayed flights, no information, the crew didn't know a thing..didn't leave out until 2am and was suppose to leave ar 855"
Cons: "We were grounded for over an hour, no fault of United. Spent a half hour on the runway, it would've been nice to be told that before taking off."
Cons: "Our plane hit an ice patch and ran into the snow bank. We had to wait 2 hours before I could get off the plane and then I had to wait in line for 5 hours for a new flight. United only paid for a hotel room in Denver since I missed my connecting flight to New Jersey. I missed an entire day of travel and all they gave me was a 1 night hotel stay. It was a super long day and put me behind. I kind of thought they would have comped my flight."
Cons: "The only thing I didn't care for is I sat beside a man that was 63 and weighed about 275 pounds and I had absolutely no room to sit. Also I couldn't buy any snacks on the plane because it only took cards ."
Pros: "I requested a wheelchair. My foot is in a boot and I am not suppose to walk any distance on it. I was told there were only 2 wheelchairs and that they were for 2 elderly passengers. I passed 8 more wheelchairs that were not being used. Very rude airport employees. I had to use an escalator and almost fell."
Cons: "30 more minutes....."
Pros: "The crew on this flight were extremely friendly and genuinely seemed happy to be there."
Cons: "The flight was delayed over 3 hours, putting me home at 4:00 am, instead of my planned 12:30 am. At that point, I wish I had booked a flight for Sunday. I was stuck in the ohare airport for hours while stores and restaurants were closed, without wifi, and tired. Then I had to wait for my paid checked bag once I landed in Charlotte."
Pros: "First Class"
Cons: "The began by saying they were delaying the flight due to waiting for passengers. After about a hour they finally said that there was mechanical issues. Three hours later after sitting on the Tarmac the plane finally took off and we got to our destination three hours late."
Pros: "Got from point a to point b"
Cons: "30-40 minute delay to board, charge for drinks, snack, carry on, and checked luggage."
Cons: "being nickle and dimed for every little convenience, checked bag, carry on bag, seat selection, etc. What I though was a good deal ticket turned out to be way more expensive than I imagined."
Pros: "Good flight, love frontier"
Pros: "Crew was pleasant enough."
Cons: "Both of my flights were delayed. We had to get off the plane on both ends before we were allowed to reboard. I missed a long awaited dinner reservation with my husband at one end and was several hours late arriving at my final destination. Mechanical issues on both planes doesn't inspire a lot of confidence. My family and I will not fly Frontier again."
Cons: "Our flight out of Denver got CANCELED along with a whole bunch of others. Seems there were having crew issues, not the BS reasons corporate was saying. Lots of stranded people in Denver. We stood in line for 3 hours to get a refund. (we decided to go with another airline, some people had been stranded for a week!) One sad items was a soldier had been on deployment for TWO years and was trying to get home. He had been stranded since Friday (it was now Monday). The agent just shrugged and said get in line. Frontier should have booked him on another airline! Finally, a lady in line heard of his plight and bought him a ticket right there on the spot! (on another airline of course). SHAME ON FRONTIER. We will NOT fly them again! #NEVERFLYFRONTIER"
Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful!"
Cons: "I thought it was kind of cheap that your company doesn't offer complimentary beverages or food anymore. I also think that the tray tables in my plane specifically seemed a lot smaller than I remember and that seemed kind of cheap to me."
Pros: "The prices were reasonable."
Cons: "Check in personnel didn't arrive until and hour before the flight was scheduled to take off which left myself and every other passenger waiting in line for over an hour. The new seats look very nice, but are just hard plastic covered in faux leather leaving passengers with an uncomfortable experience. They did not recline, which wouldn't have been a problem if the tray tables weren't the size of an iPad mini. The seats were so close together you couldn't even rest forward onto the tiny tray tables without hitting your head on the persons seat in front of you. I am by no means a large person at only 5' 3" so I can only imagine how awful it was for tall people! For a three hour plane ride it would be better to go with any other company."
Pros: "Flight was reasonably priced. Flight options were great"
Cons: "Rates are misleading. Once you add in the higher baggage fee, the seat fees (no free seats), the flight is priced the same if not higher than other airlines but the real difference is in all of this is customer service. The lead flight attendant on the my flight was extremely rude and unresponsive. My mother had a wheelchair assist her to the gate for our departing flight in Orlando. This was arranged by the ticket counter. Apparently, Frontier screwed up and did not arrange for a wheelchair to meet us at the gate in Charlotte. When we mentioned this to the lead flight attendant, he said we would need to go and find one ourselves. I asked if he could call the gate and asked them to bring one so I wouldn't have to leave my elderly mother, he said, "no". I asked again and explained that I didn't want to leave my mother. This time he rolled his eyes at me and said, it wasn't his problem. Really? This is precisely the reason I will not take Frontier again. Please look into training your people better or your hiring process. Cheap flight do not address this issue."
Pros: "Checking my bag was quick and easy but it would have been better had cash been accepted."
Cons: "Charging for a coke? Seriously?!?! The stewardesses were not very personable and ate and chatted amongst themselves for most of the flight."
Cons: "I don't like the way price of the ticket got dropped"
Pros: "What is to like?"
Cons: "They honey dick you with the cheap plane tickets then screw you over at the the counter when they charge an unnecessary amount for carry on baggage. I WILL NEVER FLY FRONTIER AGAIN. Not to mention the meal trays can barely hold a lunch-able... Go home frontier airlines.. your drunk."
Pros: "Seats were wider than most airlines and there seemed to be a couple of inches more legroom, but the seats were thin and not very comfortable."
Cons: "Unexpected fee for carry-on baggage. Who ever heard of being charged for a CARRYON? The airline provides no service with carry-on luggage- all the work is done by the customer."
Cons: "When I got to the gate, I was told that I had to pay $45 for my carry on luggage, which I found it to be somewhat insulting (if I had agreed to check-in the luggage it would have been 'cheaper' only $40). This was the first time I had ever been asked to pay for my carry-on luggage, and the basis for me to never fly Frontier ever again. They claim that it was because of the ticket I purchased through a third party, and I told them that they should not advertise any tickets where you intend to charge people for their carry-on luggage. To make things worse, it appears that Frontier does not participate with the TSA pre-check program, and even though I had my global entry card with me, the officer at TSA pre-check would not allow me through this line because of the airline I was flying with - Never again!!! I suspect that on my way back I'll be forced to pay another $45 for my carry-on luggage, which I despise."
Cons: "Frontier nickel and dimes you for everything: on top of the ticket price, you must pay for your seats, carry-on, you name it! The seats are horribly uncomfortable--no reclining!"
Cons: "Paying up to $60 for a carry on. Waiting on the runway for 30 minutes with no communication from the pilot when we landed in Denver."
Cons: "Having to pay all the extra fees for a checked bag and carry on luggage."
Pros: "The plane didn't crash."
Cons: "Many years ago, I was an Early Rewards member who flew Frontier any time I could. No longer. The ticket price no longer resembles what you will pay. Now they charge $15-35 to get a seat,another $30-$35 to check or carry on each piece, and sit in uncomfortable seats that do not recline. These extra charges cause long delay at the check in counter even if I already checked in and only needed to check a bag because everyone else had to pay. Now I'll only fly Frontier if there is no alternative."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats, they did not recline. Crew kept talking loudly at the back and it was hard to sleep ."
Cons: "Fee's for luggage and carry ons. In other airline its already included Fee's for luggage and carry ons. In other airline its already included Delayed flight"
Cons: "Longest security line I have ever seen and I travel in a lot of countries all over the world that have outrageous security lines. Had an hour and a half to get through security and still missed the flight. Nothing could be done because the next flight was in 3 days."
Cons: "What? Wouldnt you think your ticket would actually mean you'd purchased a seat on your flight? Not with Frontier. Extra cost for your seat - ANY seat. And for your carry-on bag. Seats are nearly unbrearably thin and stiff. No recline. No headrest. Miniature tray. Knees push against the seat in front. And not an inexpensive ticket to begin. Last Frontier flight for me."
Pros: "Getting off the plane."
Cons: "Everything else."
Cons: "They charged me for my carry on at the gate!"
Cons: "Charging for water? Really?? Charge me a carry on fee, a checked luggage fee and forcing me to pay a carry on fee for my PERSONAL ITEM that fits under the seat??? You've got to be kidding me."
Pros: "flight was pretty much on time, attendants were steady and pleasant."
Cons: "Seats weren't very comfortable and cramped, baggage charges were excessive, low class travel."
Pros: "The overall experience was ok, I was on time so I can't complain."
Cons: "Every time they have a massive line waiting to check in, they seem to only have one attendant available, causing massive delays checking in. We stood in a line for over an hr."
Cons: "Everything is tribble I will never fly with frontier airline again"
Cons: "My military plane showed up a little late so when I showed up to check in their was no one in sight due to there stupid 45 minute policy. So I had to buy a whole new ticket with another airline worth ALOT more then what the Frontier one was"
Pros: "From the moment I stepped to the tic counter in SEA, the agent spoke with me, not at me...so kind, so sharp and professional...She ( I wish I cold remember her name) set my expectations for my flights...What is incredibly amazing is that everything she drew for me to keep in mind, was exactly how it turned out to be. I think Frontier ought to clone this hard to find ( in this world of indifference) professional person...Although I took advantage of a great price for my travel, I felt I was trade as if I was traveling 1st Class."
Cons: "The walks at Denver's airport. And having to pay for general beverages, including water...not good."
Pros: "The crew was fantastic and super friendly. We actually departed the gate a little early and arrived at our destination 30 minutes early. Easy travel the Sunday after Thanksgiving felt like a miracle. You have to know that you pay for all of the extras (including coffee). It's still less expensive than flying other airlines most of the time."
Cons: "I bought a more expensive seat -- you pay for all the extras -- which meant I got an exit row (plenty of leg room), but my seat didn't recline. My flight wasn't that long but it was early in the day, so I intended to get a seat that reclined. I was disappointed for paying $25 for the seat and not even getting a reclining seat."
Pros: "My flight took off on time no luggage nor carry on but was surprise when found out frontier would charge carry on. Flight was cheap, crews were fine. We arrived half hour earlier then schedule which was great only to find out they couldn't open the plane's door so had to wait for 20 minutes before it opened. All and all I would rate 4 stars and will give another try."
Pros: "It was a beautiful flight and flight crew were friendly!"
Cons: "All the hidden charges were a bit much!!!!"
Pros: "Free snacks and water , tea and coffee"
Cons: "Paying for checked baggage. Nickel and diming us all over the place."
Pros: "Boarding seemed to be quick, staff seemed nice enough, must take some extra training to be able to deal with customers enraged over petty things your airline charges for."
Cons: "No seat recliner, seat more like a plastic bucket racing seat from a race car. Less room to store even my small backpack under the seat in front of me. Tray table was useless unless you want to put it down and laugh at how small it was.. Other airlines are putting in charging outlet for everyone whist you guys just take away commodities. If you're going to make stuff worse for whatever reason at least give a small commodity that improvs the customers experience. The fee for drinks.. I can understand alcoholic beverages, sort of, but just an average can of soda or life saving water... I mean come on, are you going to be charging for the quality of air we get to breath next? And don't even get me started on the $45 bag check fee and $25 carry on fee.. It's legitimately cheaper to have my bag mailed then it is to go through you guys.. Too bad I already made my returning flight with your airline, otherwise I would never be flying it again unless some serious changes are made. There's no warning of these fees either which I'm pretty sure is called... Ahh can't remember the word for it, but I'm pretty sure you guys know what I'm talking about."
Cons: "Flight was late, seats are incredibly small and plane was not clean"
Cons: "The seating was very horrible and tight and uncomfortable.Also the seats do not recline"
Pros: "Boarded on time. Friendly crew."
Cons: "No leg room. Should serve free beverages."
Pros: "**some** of the crew members made it somewhat comfortable for the flight."
Cons: "Everything from when I got there to when I got back home was one of the most uncomfortable and annoying flying experiences ever. Also be ready to take your credit card out every 5 minutes because frontier airlines charges you for just about anything you can think of, I was surprised the water was free. No joke. Almost every other flight is delayed so don't plan anything important within the next 1-2 hours of your final destination. I personally would never fly this airline again, hope this helps."
Cons: "Flight was canceled and frontier did not help me find a flight out. I was told to go to airport and try to get on stand by. When I got to airport they told me they did not do stand by. I will never fly frontier again"
Pros: "The price was nice, if it hadn't been a bait and switch"
Cons: "You offer a price for a flight to compcompete with other airlines and then when I get there surprise! You have to pay for carry on luggage! At $40 per bag which was more than non carry on with any airline. When I attempted to talk to the customer service rep about it she had a lousy attitude, was quite rude and just said well other airlines hide their fees in the cost of a ticket. That may be true, but Frontier hides it in general, you think you understand what you have agreed to, you think that you have been offered savings, but instead you are forced to pay for carry on and have saved nothing at all. I feel if Frontier airlines would deceive me about fees, there are other things that they would lie about as well."
Pros: "Crew was laid back and flight actually arrived a little early. People who didn't know they would be charged for carry-on bags clearly do not know how to read. The process is very clear even before you book your ticket. And you know the people who don't want to be scammed into paying extra for a seat because they are usually in the middle... Middle Rules!"
Pros: "Actual flights were uneventful and pleasant."
Cons: "Flight from Seattle was delayed causing me to spend many hours in the airport. With more proactive communication from Fronteir I could have pursued other options rather than sitting in SEA all day. Secondly, when I had to stay overnight in Denver I was given almost no information about the shuttle or where my hotel was; the paper I was given only gave the chain name and there are two hotels with that chain name near the airport. Just my luck, I was carried to the wrong hotel even though I asked the shuttle driver and showed him the voucher from Frontier. This could be prevented by having complete written information available for a predictable situation like this."
Pros: "My first flight had in flight tv which was nice, and there was a bit more comfort."
Cons: "The flight was delayed due to weather in Denver, but luckily I made it just in time for my connections, but I can't say the same for some of my peers."
Pros: "Reasonably efficient, on time on the way out, 30 minute delay on the way back. Crew was pleasant enough."
Cons: "Seems like a good deal, but be careful! I expected a budget airline where one had to buy coffee or soda onboard, no big deal. I didn't expect that the carryon baggage, would cost nearly as much as the flight. I expect a charge for premium seating, but not a charge for ANY seat selection, etc. Seats were the worst I'd EVER encountered. No headrest at all, no padding, nothing. I'm not too picky, and at 150 lbs don't strain the capacity of most airline seats, but this was BAD."
Pros: "Space on plane sense nobody flies this airline."
Cons: "Ticketing agent denies a 6'6" traveler an aisle seat because it's, in their words: "Fully Booked". Once onboard, you realize the plane is half full and that the ticketing agent just didn't want to be inconvenienced."
Pros: "Not much, food selection was very poor!"
Cons: "I sat next to a very noisy toddler who kept banging the tray behind me! I sat next to a very rude guy to told me to turn my phone off! There is something called airplane mode!"
Cons: "$40 carry-on fee, $2 cokes... It seemed like frontier charged for just about everything they could think of."
Pros: "Crew was efficient. Just walked on board no waiting. Didn't eat. No entertainment, thus the average rate. 1 fault was main cabin door closed while cockpit door was open! Flight smooth. Good flight!"
Cons: "See above!"
