Pros: "Great, short commuter flight."
Pros: "Quick flight"

Pros: "Very quick and easy boarding system. And, very friendly flight crew."
Cons: "The flight was booked through Alaska Airlines, but facilitated through Sky West. At SFO, Alaska runs out of terminal 2, but Sky West out of the international terminal. I went through security at terminal 2, only to find out that I needed to leave security, get on the tram and return to the international terminal."
Pros: "Alaska's staff is prompt and courteous."
Pros: "The flight was on time and the crew was efficient and courteous"
Cons: "Boarding was horrible (like most airlines), too many levels, and by the time we can board, we have a long wait in the loading corridor, at a standstill in the aisle. Seats are cramped and the only thing they offer to eat (free) is a small cookie. They charge too much for internet connection also. I wish airlines would just board from the last row forward, would speed the process up tremendously. I don't care about first class, MVP, military, families, they always seem to be in the front third, and that's what slows everything down."
Pros: "We missed our 8:10am filght out. After the pushing off of the plane, a very kind steward assisted us. Her co-worker was not so kind."
Cons: "No cabin refreshes; one toilet out of commission; baby poo-smell filled the air; crew stopped ALL service owing to one sick first class passenger."
Cons: "Was not told about renting device when my iPad device woluld not work. I would have paid if someone told me that renting was an option. I was told sorry " you r old school". REALLY.......?????? I was ready to sign up for Alaska airlines credit card, sine my previous trips have been great. For such a long trip a little entertainment would have been nicw"
Pros: "very friendly"
Pros: "Just a great and expedient experience, I was in and out so smoothly. Thank you"
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "Pdx tsa...very rude"

Pros: "Everything was just great! Everyone was super helpful"
Cons: "My boarding pass had he wrong gate but I was able to find my way."
Pros: "We were on and off the plane quickly. Luggable arrived very promptly. Nice choice for beer and wine which is complimentary."
Cons: "Very efficient and friendly."
Pros: "Nice staff, easy boarding"
Cons: "wenatchee security does not include a cafe so coffee and tea must be had outside of security. if you are with friends and early that is fine but if you are alone, it is more comfortable to go inside but there are no hot drinks. The cafe should be allowed to run inside as well."
Pros: "It's more comfortable than some other small commercial aircraft"
Cons: "The seats doesn't recline much which is terrible for someone with back problems. Boarding the airplane was a joke. Alaska was boarding 3 planes at once and everyone had to walk the tarpit then up the aircrafts. They had to give you a color to make sure you're not boarding the wrong plane and had to repeat their announcements several times for 20 minutes since people arrive at different time to board the planes. Definitely can benefit from some organization."
Pros: "Captain of our flight made us feel at ease with his silly jokes. All the flight attendants were very nice and even gave me a complimentary drink for my birthday."
Pros: "The flight was fine."
Cons: "The many delays were a bummer. We were supposed to leave at 10:37 but there were several delays because of unknown mechanical reasons. I missed my niece's birthday party because of the delay. That was a bummer."
Cons: "Extremely poor customer service. Had to wait until the very last minute before my companion & I were permitted to board due to overbooking. Despite having purchased our tickets 5 months prior. And to top it off, once we were finally let on the plane, we were split up and forced to sit at opposite ends of the plane. There was zero remorse or compassion from the gate agents. They simply shoved us on our way as if it were our doing. Alaska Airlines has lost mine and my partners business. Quality has been replaced with quantity. Extremely disappointing."
Pros: "First off Bonnie at the boarding gate was phenomenal , She has an amazing disposition ( especially at 5:00 in the morning ) she greeted each and every customer by name and with a smile ! Our flight was delayed for 2 hours as we sat at the gate while problems were fixed . The Captain made sure he kept us informed as each problem occurred and was fixed . The rest of the flight crew remained patient and attentive , which of course kept all the customers onboard calm and patient as well . My daughter just moved to Seattle and if this is the norm for this airline I will continue to use them for my future visits ! Elizabeth"
Pros: "One of the best airlines."
Pros: "I am a tall woman and rarely ride in an airplane without my kneecaps brushing the seat in front of me in coach. Not sure what Alaska Airlines is doing differently, but I had knee-room to spare on my flight to Seattle!"
Cons: "Upon our arrival in Seattle, it seemed that the gate wasn't quite ready for us and we spent a restless few minutes "getting docked" for departure."
Pros: "Everything goog"
Cons: "Slat Lake is not good for mobility challenged people."
Pros: "The space between passengers."
Cons: "Nothing it was perfect."
Pros: "Crew was awesome! Service was quick!"
Cons: "One flight the plane was quite warm and the air overhead was blowing warm air.. didn’t cool down until we were preparing to land and then it blew warm air out again.."
Pros: "Crew nailed it. Came by not just for food and drinks but also frequently enough to collect trash/plates/empty cups."
Pros: "Seats too small"
Cons: "Crappie entertainment. Never figured out how to login on phone,"
Cons: "Flight into Seattle delayed, flight out of Seattle to Minneapolis delayed flights out of Minneapolis to Bismarck delayed. Ran from gate F to gate c24 arrived at 10:23 p.m. Slight to the park at 10:25 p.m. and they closed the door on me as I was running up there. Ran across the entire terminal to get there and they would not let me on. Last Flight of the night to Bismarck. Missed my uncle's 90th birthday party. Would not give me food voucher. Delta gate agent told me she would lose her job if she did not close the doors 8 minutes prior. However the Minneapolis flight waited for 15 minutes for people to board that plane. How does that compute? Why would they not wait 3 minutes for me rather than pay the money to put me up in a hotel?"
Pros: "Crew is always friendly"
Cons: "Aircraft broke, had to route me to an additional three stops just to get me home and through the night. Also, still unsure of where my checked baggage is."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Flight attendants not friendly"
Pros: "The flight was on time, the crew was pleasant and looked like they enjoyed working in the air."
Cons: "Our second time on a 787 Dreamliner across the Atlantic as about the same as the the first. The seat pitch is very tight so when a passenger reclines into the next row the seatback nearly touches your face. The Dreamliner seats seem to be very hard and it's difficult to get comfortable."
Pros: "Nothing to like when 1. you are arriving at your destination after 24 hours plus delays. 2. you paid Comfort+ class (not cheap) and are constantly pushed back in the Main Cabin."
Cons: "Actual flights flying on time. What a mess!"
Pros: "Quick, on time flight. That’s always good!"
Cons: "Lead attendant spoke so fast that he was hard to understand."
Cons: "Well for one my seat was broken. At the beginning of the flight they said “there are meals for purchase available” when i asked for one they said they were all out but then gave out to other customers. Their attitudes were horrible."
Cons: "Issues with connecting flights so had to sit in different place, seat was broken"
Pros: "Crew was nice and funny"

Pros: "Excellent attendants. Smooth boarding and on time flight."
Pros: "Gate crew in DEN provided free refreshments at the gate during a 2+ hour flight delay."
Cons: "The aircraft used for this flight comes from LGA as part of an out-and-back. Delays can be expected if there is an earlier departure delay in NYC. On 6/30, this aircraft was 2+ hours late while all other airlines (United, Southwest and Frontier) were all on-time."
Pros: "Ice weather and flight cancelled, but they waited until the last minute to cancel it."
Cons: "Ice weather and flight cancelled, but they waited until the last minute to cancel it."
Cons: "Seemed like most everyone is now on Group 1, so boarding was very chaotic and slow."
Pros: "Enjoyed the flight and the attitude snd professionalism of the Delta staff. Only negative is that my entertainment screen did not work at all. The flight attendant tried resetting it but that did not work."

Pros: "Short and nice flight"
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: "Delay over one hour."
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: "Good flight. Typical air travel"
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: "The agent on my departure flight at the ATL airport was amazing, boarding was quick, the flight attendants were great! I had an overall great experience."
Cons: "Turbulence was pretty bad both flights."
Pros: "The crew & my seat"
Cons: "The movie offerings & the snack offerings."
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"
Pros: "Seamless uneventful flight."
Pros: "Exit sear so plenty of room"
Cons: "Changed gates without notification"
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."
Pros: "Good crew, appeared to work we’ll together."
Cons: "Could not figure out how to plug in ac for charging devices. Should have some educational label somewhere on that."
Pros: "Crew was efficient and pleasant making for a good experience."
Cons: "Other than at meals, No crew around to distribute water on a 9-10 hour flight. Crew not very nice when we were asking for water. Completely dehydrated on arrival. Ground crew very charming."
Pros: "Crew was amazing. Seats were comfo"
Pros: "We landed safely; Beautiful infotainment screen that did NOT work"
Cons: "Extreme delays; Beautiful infotainment screen that did NOT work; Sitting on the runway/tarmac for hours"
Cons: "Flights had to be changed due to a delay on first flight that would make it impossible to take the connecting flight. My route and airlines were completely changed, which caused a big delay in original arrival time. In addition to that, my luggage did not make it and I'm still waiting to find out where my suitcases are. Very disappointed."
Pros: "On time and the staff was great"
Cons: "I had to put my carry on item 10 seats behind my seat location. That delayed my leaving of the plane to my next flight."
Cons: "Not enough time in London to change planes. We missed the flight"
Pros: "Crew made a special effort to find me a nondairy meal (which I had neglected to request)."
Cons: "Web page dysfunction meant we couldn't sign up for wifi. The page asked me to set security questions but the pulldown for the questions had no options to select from. I tried on multiple devices/browsers."
Pros: "The one flight attendant that realized how shitty of a situation they placed me in."
Cons: "American Airlines made me take all clothes out of carry-on, took my brand new AWAY bags, and made me stuff my clothes and other belongings into 5 plastic bags. All because they said my bag was illegal to fly on plane (whether it was checked in or not). Turns out they didn’t have to do that. What a crock."
Pros: "seats comfy, seemed like a newer plane, crew was lovely."
Cons: "usual complaints about domestic flights - not having free headphones and not having free snacks."
Cons: "Middle seat"
Cons: "Luggage allowance policy was not clear, so that they can try to charge passengers extra fee. Airline blames on one another when it comes to connecting flight if we purchased a one stop flight"
Pros: "Cabin crew attentive. Comfortable seat. Only 2/3 full. Easy boarding and embarking. Overall, value for cost."
Cons: "Food. No individual entertainment unit."
Pros: "I would like if for my return from Paris to Chicago, Chicago Seattle I would be greeted by the personal and offered to flight first class without extra charge to compensate for the bad experience on my way going in. Thank you"
Cons: "I was told I would be able to choose the seats only 24 hours before the flight by going online. I tried to choose the seats online but could not have access to the site. I then called the number provided to ask for more help, and was told that I could then only choose the seats at the check in time. I was at the airport 2 hours before the flight schedule to book my seat and was told them that I could only choose the seats at the gate. Once I got at the gate I asked the person to please give me a seat at the aisle for medical reasons but after waiting until the boarding process had started I was giving a middle seat. Not only I was treated as a stand by passenger that had not purchased the tickets I was put nt on group 8 and at the moment of boarding the gate personal aggressively grabbed my carry-on bag because they insisted there was no more spaces in the compartment above heads. Once I got inside of airplane I saw many empty compartments available for carry-on luggage. I wish I had not purchased my ticket with Iberia Airlines operated by American Airlines. It was not a good, pleasant experience and do not recommend. I wil certainly avoid in the future and not travel this way another time. Thanks"
Cons: "No food or entertainment offered at all - for a 5-1/2 hour flight. Seats uncomfortable. I don't like how it feels like you're nickle and diming us - charging for every little thing, including what seat you sit in."
Pros: "This airlines sucksI didn't really like much of anything about the entire trip"
Cons: "I didn't really like much of anything about the entire trip. Mainly, there was absolutely no entertainment except some overhead movie that no one wanted to watch. The plane was old and comfortable."
Pros: "loved having a movie to pass the time. Super friendly attendants."
Pros: "Was able to change my seat"
Cons: "The tone of the flight attendant (male) who can through the cabin to check things before landing. He was brash and abrasive. Yes, safety first, but overall not a good look for someone in a customer service industry. you can accomplish the same goal with different delivery"
Cons: "I paid for a non-stop from Seattle to Philadelphia. they cancelled it and only had options that dragged out the trip, caused an extra day of lost work. There was no attempt or offer to ameliorate the inconvenience, or refund the cost -- even an upgrade would have been appreciated. just here's what we have, take it or leave it. I am through with American"
Cons: "No screens, no wifi"
Pros: "Really? I just gave 1 star. Your feedback form should be smart enough to realize that."
Cons: "It's not finnair. It's American Airlines. The sears were so cramped that I have a horrible backache. Stop calling it finnair. Several airlines booked tickets on this flight. There's nothing good to say."
Pros: "Flight was ok, staff was professional and friendly. A good cleaning would be great. I'm average height and light build for a woman but I find the seats really are snugger than ever."
Cons: "AA didn't notify me of their change to my itinerary so I missed my flight, they cancelled my return flight from Europe, and only offered to refund my ticket when I spoke to a supervisor. I drove 5.5 hours to another city to catch a flight to Europe, believing my return ticket was valid as AA first told me, only later to learn they cancelled it. Thanks to AA, I currently I have no return ticket. Others on this flight and on my later Iberia flight were cursing AA loudly so I don't think my issue is an anomaly, but is more likely AA's new standard of conduct."
Cons: "Self check-in staff at Seattle was not that helpful."
Pros: "On time. Friendly crew. Good price."
Pros: "They switched my flight promptly when I missed my connection."
Cons: "I missed my connection for no apparent reasons. When asked for compensation they said there was nothing they could do and cited reasons Regarding the boarding and deboarding of a special needs passenger."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Bags didn't get lost. Pilot and crew seemed nice."
Cons: "Smallest middle seat I've ever sat in. Wifi was $40. Baggage Fees were pricey. No free snacks. No free entertainment options."
Pros: "I know AA and Alask are same company but I bought Alaska ariline ticket and everything I need to deal with is AA. It's too confusing."
Cons: "Too confused!"
Cons: "Fat constantly moving man next to me"
Pros: "free entertainment"
Pros: "Help that I received from check in through security to the gate was awesome. The person who checked me in offered me a wheelchair as it was a pretty long distance to the gate. I don't think that I would have made it all the way without her for thought and help! Same goes after the flight when we landed in Philadelphia. From the plane to gather my luggage and then to the place where my ride could pick me up. Awesome service. The stewards were also very helpful to keep me supplied with ice for my dogs. They get very stressed and tend to overheat. Thanks to a couple of the staff, especially, my dogs stayed very comfortable as well. Other then the fact that they got too warm a couple of times. Will definitely keep American in mind for another flight."
Cons: "I have not got a background in flying. I read the literature in the seat in front of me but I would like to have known sooner that I could turn a knob to help get cool air on my dogs. They were getting very warm and I spent a great deal of time fanning them when I could have just let the air do it's job."
Cons: "No information and made us wait about 3 hours past departure time to tell us the flight was delayed until the next day, but did not even know at what time or why!!! It really messed up it vacation since we were going to Florida for only 3 days!"
Cons: "They boarded group 1 all at once. I was group 2. They boarded all of us all at once. It was a cluster!. I haven't flew in 6 years. But when I did they boarded by so many rows. Not all at once . Boarding was horrible. It was like a cattle drive."
Pros: "Just wish the boarding was better"
Pros: "The price was right! Connection in Chicago was a little tight but overall a good flight."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "We sat on the tarmac for an hour after we landed. Missed my connection, no other flights that night. It wasn't even 10 pm yet."
Cons: "I'm not sure why I paid Alaska Airlines, and received confirmation emails from Alaska Airlines, but whenever I went to check in for my flights Alaska Airlines couldn't do anything for me. Instead all they did was tell me to go to American Airlines if I wanted help. I gave you my money Alaska Air.. how about you help me?"
Cons: "Our flight from Seattle to JFK was delayed over 11 hours, not because of weather or mechanical issue, but because a flight attendant fell ill and American Airlines had no one to take his or her place. They had to fly in an employee from Texas to cover the shift. Are you kidding me? I understand there are unforeseen events but any reputable airline should have a personnel contingency plan better than that. As a result, we lost a whole day of our vacation, missed our Broadway performance, and others missed their business meetings. All the alerts informing us of the delay were sent long after they already occurred. I will avoid flying American again at all costs."
Pros: "Flight attendants and boarding personnel are very friendly."
Cons: "Mediocre food and entertainment. Internet price are ridiculous compared to competitors ( just flew SouthWest - so much better). Cost at about $6 for a half-hour. They had to bring the cleaning crew back on to clean parts of the plane - it was to dirty for anyone to sit in one row."
Pros: "The crew was friendly. The pilot told us what landmarks we were flying over as well as weather, altitude updates and arrival times."
Pros: "The captain of the plane did a phenomenonal job communicating with the passengers on board. He provided us information on location, altitude, and let us know when to expect turbulence which I thought was great, as many do not communicate much with the passengers. Also the plane was in good conditions and was comfortable."
Pros: "relatively quiet for a redeye, seats were made out of a decent leather like material, TVs in the back of each seat along with charging inputs"
Cons: "AA version of the 737 is very cramped, small seats with little room and very upright, barely recline if at all. Also, unlike other airlines they installed metal boxes underneath the seats for the life vests which take up a third of your leg room. Overhead air barely blows and the overall temp was a little too warm for comfort even while just wearing shorts and a T-shirt. Lights were bright for first half of the trip until they finished drink service even though flight started at midnight."
Pros: "There isn't much to like about a red eye flight. It got us home. We selected it based on price and schedule."
Cons: "Crew made one pass thru cabin with a mini bag of pretzels and one pass thru with beverage. Never saw them again but perhaps that is the norm for AA. No so with other carriers we have flown red eyes on. Always tough getting a good connection when flying west to east"
Cons: "5 gate changes and 1 hour 20 minute delay!"
Pros: "Everyone from the woman checking boarding passes at the gate to the pilot himself, was friendly, jovial, and light. Very relaxing trip, I just felt very welcome by everyone."
Cons: "Nothing at all. Well, it'd be nice if ALL seats were 1st class size, lol."
Cons: "flight was delayed. long overlay. uncomfortable plane from lac to fat."
Cons: "Flight was one and one-half hour late out of Seattle to Chicago, so we missed our American connecting flight. NO real people in O-Hare - luckily we were put on a United flight, because one of their very helpful staff (a real person at the US busiest airport - a concept American might want to try) found out that while American gave us a confirmation code confirmation, we had no tickets. How does a trained customer service person miss this?!? United personnel managed to straighten this out. On board the flight, there was NO FOOD - they ran out before halfway down the aisle. We had a four hour wait in Chicago (over dinner time) because of the missed flight, but American refused us a food voucher. I hope never to fly on American again."
Pros: "I had really awful sinus pain on the flight and the crew was very helpful and sympathetic"
Cons: "The entertainment system was pretty lame (DirectTV) and of course the now-typical lack of food and beverage items for domestic flights"
Cons: "This was just so awful! I was so disappointed because I have heard good things about United. The seats I paid extra for were ridiculously small, no leg room at all! Then the plug for earbuds was broken, so I was unable to watch movies or listen to music. I am really dreading the trip back!"
Pros: "I was asleep for most of the flight so I missed any food & did not use the internet. I consider an uneventful flight as a great experience :)"
Cons: "At 1 am, SEA TAC had a 20 minute delay for air traffic!"
Cons: "Worst flight experience ever."
Pros: "Nothing great, nothing bad. took off and landed on time."
Cons: "paced seats, nit enough room for carry ons."
Pros: "On time, comfortable seating, good service. Only thing wrong was that i couldn't get the entertainment to work on my android phone.."
Pros: "Gates for connecting were close and even with delay, I made it on time."
Cons: "Flight delay, that made the short connection even shorter"
Cons: "Gate crew didn't help much with seating or connecting flights. Staff almost never smiled, and when boarding the plane instead of a, "hello" or "good morning", there were two attendants staring at their phones. They looked up when I greeted first, but seemed put off a touch. They also switched the seating without telling us ahead of time, so my husband and I had to sit in middle seats, apart from each other on our anniversary trip. Very unhelpful and unfriendly when I inquired to change."
Cons: "The plane was delayed in WA DC and the staff did nothing to help with transfers in Addis Ababa and I missed my connection."
Pros: "Atleast 2/3 movies free"
Cons: "That you have to pay for entertainment"
Cons: "Now Sherry in any documentation I received did it say that my flight was operated by United airlines. I waited at ANA check in until within the 2 hour window and went around and asked someone at United who confirmed that they were partners with ANA."
Cons: "We sat on the plane for almost an hour before takeoff. We actually sat so long that they did the safety demonstration twice. It was absurd. Mistakes happen, but my overall trip must have fallen in the unlucky category. I'll continue to use kayak, but I'll be reluctant to book United Airlines."
Pros: "How they gave me exit row seats and flifht crew was good"
Cons: "Your check in ticket counter workers in SEA airport.. there was a married couple who was very rude and because i could not get a "prepaid card" but had 25 for my bag the man said "well i guess you are not going" excuse me?! I paid over 200 for my ticket!! Luckily there was a nice polynesian young man who stepped in and helped right away. That couple made my experience HORRIBLE! I do want something done about that! I almost missed a very important event and they looked to be arguing with each other! They need to keep their personal stuff at home! I was so mad.however, the flight crew was awesome!"
Cons: "Delayed because of no crew members"
Pros: "Access to in flight entertainment."
Cons: "Air vent pressure was lacking Cramped quarters but it is expected in economy."
Pros: "Delays 2 hours"
Pros: "Good flight and good crew."
Pros: "Everything went by smoothly, no problems"
Pros: "My other passengers in First Class. Your crew was also very kind and well mannered."
Cons: "I spent over 150 for an upgrade for a red eye for a flight I already spent over 500. Your crew lacked attention in service and one specific crew member (male) woke me up twice due to the loudness of his voice. Disappointed in the quality for the amount spent."
Pros: "The staff was pleasant and helpful."
Cons: "The flight was late but that was at no fault to the airline."
Pros: "The seat itself was comfortable but the leg room for my taller companion was a bit tight."
Cons: "It was a 5 hour flight and on the outgoing flight not even a snack was offered. On the return flight a very small bag of spicy pretzel bits was offered. When I went to get on the return flight I had a small sling purse, a small yarn bag (both hung on the same arm) and a bag of food for the lunch they wouldn't serve me. I was told I couldn't get on the flight with 3 bags, even though all 3 would fit under the seat. The free entertainment contained a grey box over part of the image reminding I could pay for more. Was only given a tiny glass of soda, I remember when they would give a can. I will consider another airline in the future."
Pros: "Friendly service"
Cons: "United did not inform me original flight was cancelled. Kayak did Seats are cramped"
Cons: "4.5 hr.delay due to crew unavailability."
Pros: "We had the flight attendant from heaven! She was so attentive to us and outshined all other flight attendants - ever!"
Pros: "Nice leg room courteous attendants"
Cons: "Pay to watch all tv? Not worth the charge"
Pros: "BEFORE BOARDING, THE STAFF WAS SUPER FRIENDLY AND ACCOMMODATING"
Pros: "Everything not TSA related."
Cons: "The racist OKC TSA. The line was moving along and the TSA agent sitting behind the podium checking boarding passes put his hand up and asked me to wait there. There weren't that many people in the lines, so I was wondering why. His partner at the other podium watched him quizzically, as did I, as he paced left and right, looking at nothing then sat back down again and stared at nothing. All the while the line for screening grew smaller and smaller. The other agent asked him, "what are you doing?" He responded by saying, "You said you were getting THEM all." I didn't understand, but clearly there was some subtext that I was not privy to. She shook her head and said, come up here sweetie. Then she managed to do what he obviously couldn't do: his job. Then my girlfriend and I proceeded to be profiled and had our bags searched. If I didn't have to be in OKC I would avoid that airport like the plague. Unprofessional."
Cons: "Flight canceled after being delayed for 4 hrs with no explanation and no helpful options. Ended up waiting 2 more hrs to retrieve luggage then rented a car to get home. So dissatisfied with all the travel!"
Pros: "Very comfortable. Yummy snack. An entire can of pop! Lots of overhead room for bags. Very comfy seats!"
Cons: "Sat next to a very large man with injured shoulder whichave has five pens in it"
Pros: "Excellent care of my elderly mother in a wheelchair"
Cons: "Took off an hour late even though it was scheduled to leave on time. Made up a lot of the time in the air however."
Pros: "Boarding. Crew friendly"
Cons: "Uncomfortable tight seats. Overpriced entertainment cost"
Pros: "The captain kept us informed, the flight attendants were simply amazing, going above and beyond to ensure the best flight possible."
Cons: "The plane was delayed twice. The crew members at the terminal did nothing to explain why. I do know that in their world things like this happen, but in the customer's world, things like this can really mess up someone's day, so simple periodic updates as well as one genuine apology for the inconvenience would have made things a whole lot better."
Cons: "Lost my second flight because first one late, got a standby ticket for next flight, but the plane was full, was hungry, no money to spend in airport restaurants, United company should provide at least a breakfast for this inconvenience. Next flight will be with another company for sure."
Cons: "There was a short delay (I think it was something like 30-40 minutes), but we spent most of that sitting on the plane with no explanation. It was a *very minor* annoyance, though; just would have been nice to have an explanation up front instead of 10 minutes before take off."
Pros: "I am 5 foot 6 and my knees hit the seats in front of me. Seat did not recline. Sucked."
Pros: "The crew was very accommodating."
Cons: "I was seated in the economy section. It was quite uncomfortable for a four hour flight. I'm 5'9" and didn't have enough space to stretch in the 737. I felt bad for the middle seat section because there was no room at all. I had an aisle seat and still didn't have enough room the stretch. There was no food or snacks served but the crew did offer free drinks: oj, tea, water, or soda. if you can upgrade to economy plus it's definitely worth it. Spend the money for it. You will have more leg room for sure."
Cons: "One of two people bumped. I missed a ceremony with my father at the Naval Base due to the delay. We are both military and have had limited time together over the last two years. The $200 voucher does not cover the missed time I had planned with my family."
Pros: "Everything was great! Was even early, flight staff was very pleasant."
Pros: "Friendliness of the crew...leg room ....excellent, could stretch my legs out and was not cramped."
Cons: "Paying 30.00 for each bag and was not give the whole soda when offereda soda"
Cons: "It was cancelled morons."
Pros: "The flight at 7:10 am was delayed due to computer troubles. I had to be re routed because I was going to miss my connection flight in San Fran. I was able to be added to a Delta Flight direct to Philly at 11:45 am."
Pros: "Everything ran as scheduled."
Cons: "Boarding was a nightmare. Minimal customer service."
Cons: "Rude lady serving and no tv options"
Pros: "Beverage service"
Cons: "The seats were so narrow and uncomfortable that it was impossible to enjoy the flight"
Pros: "Being appeased lead to over a two hour delay. That lead to me miss my connecting flight & missing work later on that day."
Pros: "They had a backup plane and tried to get us out of Seattle as soon as possible"
Cons: "How they were overbooked and we had a delay due to maintenance so some people missed their connection flight from Chicago. It was just a hectic flight."
Pros: "Good flight, love frontier"
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 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: "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."
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."
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: "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."
Cons: "Didn't like being misled on price. Charges for "a bag" and "a seat" were not made known until AFTER the reservation was made. Refer to the original business/pricing model. 1. Everyone has some baggage. Deal with it. Enforce carry on limits 100% and openly offer check bag at a reasonable price. 2. Seats are NOT a profit option. Seats are increasingly uncomfortable, cramped and added with premium charges. Finally, the travel experience should be a pleasant and memorable one, considering the time strapped in a seat. Its OK to have Coach & Premium seating, but stop adding "option pricing" for an increasingly poor experience. I will not fly Frontier again."
Cons: "They nickel and dime you to death. Leg room is horrible if your over 4 feet tall."
Pros: "When the troubles started the staff was friendly and apologetic. They tried to help as best they could ands I watched them deal with rude customers with kindness. The flight is bate bones so no food or entertainment to review"
Cons: "We got stuck in Denver for 12 hours workout knowing what was going on. We had to go hunting for answers."
Pros: "Both flights boarded quickly, left on time, and both flights arrived several minutes early. Good winds or whatever really helped with my first impression of your airline. Clean plane, courteous staff."
Cons: "While I know it's not included in your fares, I really am used to a cup of coffee or a coke when I fly."
Pros: "Price was right for a last minute fare. Quick boarding. Great crew."
Cons: "SEATS ARE HORRIBLE! I'm not very tall, 5'10", and I could not move, with my knees jammed into the seat in front. Good thing it was only a 2 hr flight. I despise having to pay extra FOR EVERYTHING. Luckily my trip is only three days (for a sudden unexpected family funeral) and didn't bring much, so my bag fit under the seat...$60 to have regular carry on round trip?!? CRAZY!"
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: "I did appreciate the low fare."
Cons: "Its weird to keep seeing all the things you have to pay extra for that other airlines just provide."
Cons: "Bad service, expensive everything"
Pros: "$60 for a standard carry on roller bag at gate (didn't know they're ridiculous rules), extremely rude gate staff, uncomfortable seats that don't recline, they charge for a soda and can only give you 2 cups of water before they charge you for a bottle. No vomit bags and everyone was nauseas during landing!!! All in all, two big anxiety attacks later, I arrived at my destination. Worth the extra $75 to be at peace and happy and actually be taken care of!!"
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."
Pros: "Timely and efficient"
Cons: "Charged for everything"
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: "Like everyone else, I was pissed I had to pay for my carry-on. Getting to and onto my flight was average.. the stewardess kept going on and on about how the star wars plane would be visible at take off.. but it came accross like that of a hung over your guide. That part was funny and weird. They charge for everything on the flight, then pitch free miles on their credit card program for 10-20 minutes while landing. It was funky.. I won't fly with them again unless it's too cheap to be true!"
Pros: "Boarded on time. Friendly crew."
Cons: "No leg room. Should serve free beverages."
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."
Cons: "Seating was extremely uncomfortable. Staff was rude."
Cons: "Extra fees,luggage,coffee"
Pros: "I landed in Denver."
Cons: "Frontier charges $40 for carry-on, they charge for seat selection, their seats don't recline, they charge for food and drinks, the captain blamed the passengers for the delays in take-off...need I continue?"
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!"
Pros: "Everything worked good and in time. The price was low."
Cons: "The seats at the airplane are very uncomfortable."
Pros: "The seats were fine but $35 per seat each way seems a bit much in addition to the bag fee. Not that economical after all the hidden fees."
Cons: "We waited for almost an hour for our bags in baggage claim. There was no announcement made by Frontier employees. I understand this is a low budget airline but this really isn't acceptable."
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "delayed flight back to colorado"
Pros: "Lived through the flight."
Cons: "Stupid extra fees. Incompetent flight attendants. Baggage guy had to check us in when no clerk showed up. Only thing free is water. Seriously? Learn how to run an airline. Terrible, terrible, terrible."
Cons: "The staff was rude when checking in, had horrible attitudes like if you don't like your job then quit don't be rude to people not my fault you chose to work there. The flight attendants only asked few people if they would like food or drink and nobody else."
Pros: "The plane was clean. The bathroom was clean. I love the bear image on the tail of the plane."
Cons: "I arrived to seatac airport at 8:30am and printed my boarding pass 9am. I paid $30 to have my bag checked. The website said it would be $25. I waited in line for 20minutes to check my bag in. There was only 2 staff members and long line of people who needed to print there boarding pass. The long line almost made me late for boarding. After I boarded the plane the pilot stalled for 40 minutes because the parking dock broke and needed to be replaced. Also,the pilot said, 'if people would stop using the bathroom we could leave on time.' The lady next to me was uncomfortable because the seats are too tight. The plane left 11:24am . The flight was scheduled to depart Seattle at 10:30am. I was offered water. The coffee and soda was 2$ by debit card only no cash accepted."
Cons: "Unexpected $60 charge for a carry on"
Cons: "It would have been nice to know that we did not have to get off the plane in Denver."
Pros: "Initial ticket cost"
Cons: "Hidden charges. It would have been cheaper to fly a different airline after paying for bags, a seat and even coffee on the plane"
