We got to the gate for our connecting flight 9 minutes before the pushed back from the ramp and they would not let us on??? WTF poor customer service!! Fly southwest from now on!"

I never been compensate for canceling flight or extra seat price.Nobody care even apologize. I hope that was just unforchened incident and I still like your company and still flying with AA, but I was really disappointed. Sincerely Vera Vasiley."

Pros: "Nothing about American or the way they do business is good!"

Pros: "Liked how on time the flights were."
Cons: "Nothing to complain about."
Pros: "New 737, very impressive features including personal monitor for vast entertainment selection, mapping, airport info, etc. Nice, and can turn off for personal time."
Cons: "Bad seating. Less legroom than ever. Arm rest rises only 3-4 inches above seat, useless, my elbows never came close, so on red eye cannot use to prop against for sleep. No cushioning in seat, looks great, but very uncomfortable. This may be the way it is, the crews are fine, but AA Corp. has no respect for passengers in cattle-class."
Cons: "Seats not enough padding"
Cons: "I had two hour for connecting flight on quatr airways but the flight from St. Louis left St. Louis at 335 pm instead of 2pm. When I got of flight in Dallas they were already paging me overhead as a last call for quatr airways."
Pros: "Seat spacing was good, entertainment was good"
Cons: "Nothing for this flight"
Cons: "Engine was super loud on takeoff - to the point where passengers were looking around worried that something wasn't right. Eventually it seemed to be switched off once we hit the clouds and we seemed to sort of coast quietly for a minute or so - also alarming to everyone judging by the non-verbal behavior that suddenly everyone was exhibiting. Then it came back on again but only at half the volume. Nothing was mentioned about it by the captain or crew so I spent the rest of the flight wondering if the engine was going to give out part way through the flight."
Pros: "The counter for UA was not attended. I had to make few calls and they managed to put me in the next flight via Chicago"
Cons: "Reality. Flights are sometimes delayed and bound to miss connection"
Pros: "Smart way they did boarding kept a bunch of people from crowding around the gate. Maple snacks on flight were tasty."
Cons: "Really cramped seating."
Cons: "Delays, seat assignment changed, the food"
Pros: "The on-time arrival"
Cons: "Having to check our bags due to lack of overhead space which was announced before anyone boarded the aircraft. Had they provided our bags to us when we exited the plane, or told us in advance that there would be no space and they would be offering free bag check, that would have mitigated the situation. Instead they wait till the last minute costing us valuable time. In the future, they should pay us the 25 dollar bag fee when they arbitrarily make this decision."
Pros: "Smooth take off and landing"
Cons: "Always quality service, food and plane! My fav!"
Pros: "United hires good people. Flight was comfortable and on-time."
Cons: "Delay and then having to change gates - at O"Hare that means walking and walking some more !! After being insulted during check in. The RUDE woman (poor English) with assisted boarding then the RUDE man that changed my name and my luggage he chose to send to Dayton OH -never been there in my life and he "dug" thru my luggage - as if he was searching for MONEY or GOLD -he pulled out a protein drink and I asked him to hand that to me so I could drink it as I am a diabetic - he shouted at me "I THROW AWAY'. During the two hour delay I could have used it !! Poor service I will fly American from now on !!!!!!!!!!!"
Pros: "Direct tv in united codeshare flt"

Pros: "Best movie choices"

Cons: "Leg space Terrible"
Pros: "Flight was short."
Cons: "It was behind schedule. Cut it very close on making my connection to Dublin."
Cons: "Horrible flight delayed an hour and the. Waiting an hour for my bag to learn it didn't make flight even tho I was at ther airport 2 hours before flight left. They said couldn't deliver it until the next day so had to go back to the airport to get my bag! Horrible experience !"
Pros: "United offers so many free movies and shows it makes the flight fly by."
Pros: "Your Crew!!!! From the lady who checked me in to the last flight attendant saying thank you for flying with us... you should really be proud of your staff!"
Pros: "Flight was smooth and on time"
Cons: "We booked these flights and made our seating assignments when we booked months ago, but all six of us (my spouse and 4 kids ages 15, 13, 9 and 7 and myself) were forced to all sit separately on our longer connecting flight and not in our assigned seats that we had booked and reserved months ago. My kids were scared to have to sit by strangers. No one offered to switch with us so at least the younger kids could sit by their parents. The steward, Tim was rude and snooty and annoying."
Pros: "Great experience. Quick and well executed boarding/deplaning"
Pros: "No food provided except small snack"
Cons: "Completely full flight"

Pros: "A gentleman at check in was very helpful."
Cons: "My boyfriend and I were traveling with our almost 2 year old and were assigned seats apart from each other."
Cons: "Flight got cancelled"
Pros: "crew were pleasant"
Cons: "VERY small seat width (and i'm 5'8" and 145 lbs. I was on the aisle and both crew and passengers hit my shoulder almost every time they passed. No media without paying. Audio via headset was very poor. At one point thought I was going to need to change the date of my flight. Change fee alone would have been $200 on a $230 ticket (plus cost of new ticket)."
Pros: "I found my seat with no problem."
Cons: "The flight left Houston late. The check in process was fine, we were asked to check our bags because the flight was full. Once on board and seated the flight attendant came on and said there were 5 bags without the proper tags for people to claim. How could they have improper tags when the person at the gate was giving the tags out? Four bags were claimed and with 1 bag (blue) left the flight attendants asked us 3 more times "whose bag it was?". When no one claimed the bag one more person from United came down the isle holding the bag asking everyone one last time. I heard him say "I was told to do this". At this time 4 more people boarded late. I thought after a certain amount of time boarding would end?"
Pros: "Nothing to like, to be honest. 1hr delay and making my wife swap seats."
Cons: "I HATED the way my wife and I got split up from Houston to Dallas. Stewardess was NO help. They actually moved my wife to a different seat so they could put a mom and baby next to me. WHY NOT MOVE US BOTH!!??"
Pros: "Left on time arrived early attendants personable and friendly"
Pros: "There were hundreds of us in O'Hare during an ice issue. I got out 20 hours later by flying standby on a bigger plane to a city 279 miles from my airport (and my car and luggage). What was edifying during those very tiring 20 hours was this - no one, United or we passengers was rude or disrespectful. Were we (staff and passengers) all worn out and tired and frustrated? You bet. Everyone kept an attitude of acceptance for the 20 hours I was at O'Hare. Very impressive - civilization has a bright future."
Cons: "Under the circumstance, nothing bad."
Cons: "United lost one of our baggage"
Pros: "The staff worked really hard to take care of us all"
Cons: "Very crowded Overbooked flight delays from dc to newark"
Cons: "Absolutely terrible. My first United flight delayed over 2 hours causing me to miss this flight."
Pros: "Appreciated • the attitude and friendly care of the flight attendants • being able to hear and understand the pilot and announcements • loved the creative and engaging flight instructions • service was professional & made you feel first class"
Pros: "Best of all"
Pros: "Great seat i had to pay extra but it was worth it"
Pros: "Attentive service"
Cons: "Too small of a plane for such a long trip. Just one bathroom in the rear and extremely noisy."
Pros: "Crew was curtious and the flight was smooth and on time."
Cons: "The pricing for a movie was a little much for our flight, and seating was really tight."
Cons: "They cancelled my flight and l was missed flight by a mistake from their representative"
Pros: "Everything was fine. Food and entertainment were actually not applicable on this flight . Gate agent was alert to see my husband and I were not seated together so she asked if we wanted to switch so we could sit together . That was much appreciated."
Pros: "They gave us complimentary drinks and snacks and movies due to the delay, which was nice."
Cons: "An hour wait after boarding plane in Denver, a non-critical part of the plane failed. Basically an auxiliary generator that is used only when plane is at the gate. They decided to do a safety inspection which I can't fault them for. There were no issues during the flight. Also the plane was hot initially but not during the flight."
Pros: "The crew was super nice, everything ran smoothly and the aircraft was clean."
Cons: "This was my first time using this airline and you get what you pay for. Honestly I don't mind paying bag fees and food, but paying to choose a seat next to my husband was a little much."
Cons: "I rode first class and usually do. The gals were TERRIBLE. They were nice but they were so bad at their job. I was systematically served last and didn't have a drink until hours had gone by. It was a joke. I was laughing by the end of the ride at their incompetence. horrible flight."
Pros: "On time and nice spacious cabins"
Cons: "The seats are uncomfortable"
Cons: "The small seats and no leg room"
Pros: "The staff was great. Friendly, helpful, and efficient."
Cons: "Cramped seats. No wifi or entertainment. Felt nickel and dimed with my complimentary water."
Pros: "flight arrived on time"
Cons: "Flight arrived on time sat on tarmac for an hour waiting for a gate. Checked luggage took another hour. three hours in destination airport before we could get to our car. this airline sucks the big weenie!!"
Pros: "left on time"
Cons: "arrived 40 min late. uncomfortable seat. seat area too small. price is not the price. baggage took forever. never again"
Pros: "Boarding process was fast. Flight left on time. Crew were polite and helpful. Bathroom was clean and odorless."
Cons: "Seat didn't recline! So uncomfortable. Non-alcoholic drinks should be free. Crew should let passengers onow about "happy hour" drinks and deals available...I would have purchased one."
Pros: "The Regan airport is pretty nice."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed enough that we knew we would miss our connection. They were not very helpful and we had no good options available. We were basically stuck with only bad options. No one offered compensation or even to wave the surprise fees for seats and for baggage. This was after they lost our luggage on our way out to Washington!! With no compensation or apology. We will never fly Frontier again - it was a huge fiasco."
Pros: "Everything was efficient, smooth flight, and we landed--that's a good flight, right? We even landed 30 minutes ahead of schedule, which was great since I had to wait at the baggage carousel."
Cons: "It was my first time flying with Frontier and I didn't know about the bag charges and seat charges--that's on me though. Not sure I will fly with them again, as waiting for what COULD have been my carry-on at the carousel took so much time... then again, it makes it easier and quicker to board and de-board. But the seat charges were still ridiculous. Wish drinks and like, pretzels could be free just so we don't deplane with harsh breath."
Pros: "All was on time, crew was friendly, emergency on board was handled well."
Cons: "The seats are not movable, so you could not lean back a little. No screen for entertainment, tray table was less than half the normal size, uselss, snack choices, had little that one might consider healthy. A lot of junk food, and a huge offering of alcoholic beverages. Could we maybe have healthier food. It could still be pre-packaged somehow. Cost of carry on: $30. Checked suitcase: $25. That did not really make any sense, other than they make more money that way. Also irritating that if you want to have a specific seat, rather than waiting for what you might get at the airport, you have to call them, and pay $13 for a seat reservation. They are nickel and diming you, or rather in dollars. It is a rip off."
Pros: "Smooth flight. No mechanical problems."
Cons: "No free food or drinks. Not even a coke. No inflight movie. Staff seems to be all from Africa and have poor language skills. Sat on Tarmac for 20 minutes after arrival - no gate available, and waited 45 more minutes for the luggage to get to the baggage claim carosel."
Pros: "crew was fantastic"
Cons: "seats do not recline, and very narrow."
Cons: "I specifically searched for IAD (Dulles) and you returned results for DCA (Reagan) I think you need to have some type of confirmation window so that people realize that you have switched airports on them."
Pros: "Arrived 15 min Early"
Pros: "The staff were pleasant. The flight was on time."
Cons: "The fact that I called because of the storm in Washington DC the airport was closed and my flight kept getting canceled. One flight I had on a Monday--I called and was told that it was canceled. I later learned that it was not canceled. I called back and was told that it was not canceled but that all the seats were gone., So I was not happy."
Pros: "Service was excellent at check in. and staff was excelllent."
Cons: "Was not pleased with the baggage fees."
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "The seats r very uncomfortable"
Pros: "price is excellent"
Cons: "changed gates 3 times and flight delayed due to maintenance issues"
Pros: "Price. Online. On time. Clean. Efficient."
Cons: "Paying for seat. Paying for luggage."
Pros: "possibly the smoothest landing I've experienced!"
Cons: "seats don't recline? what?!"
Pros: "fair price"
Cons: "very uncomfortable since the seats don't recline back. refreshment, how cheap you should serve refreshments expensive baggage check"

Cons: "Poor seats with no cushion No beverages served on flight"
Cons: "Frontier is an awful scam of an airline."
Pros: "Wish they had free snacks."
Cons: "Customers service"
Pros: "Ticket price"
Cons: "Pay extra for everything!"
Cons: "Big delay in baggage. $10 glass of wine."
Pros: "flight on time"
Cons: "totally squished between two largely overweight individuals. This was the most awkward interaction I've had with the human race in my 41 years of existence. Can there not be an overweight seating section with two seats per row and charge them more?"
Pros: "We left on time."
Cons: "The children crying"
Pros: "Simple straightforward."
Cons: "Will remember next time carry on bags round trip add extra $100 to fare. Seems deceptive."
Cons: "Very slow baggage claim. Had to wait about 1/2 hour."
Pros: "Your crew was nice"
Cons: "I am 6 feet tall, and found your seats entirely too tight for my frame. I'm not overweight, just tall, as are many people. Worse, I paid $150 for my ticket, and other passengers I spoke with paid either $100 or $38 - round trip. Apparently I didn't check your site on the days of the week that you offered your discounts. I then had to pay $40 x 2 for my little carry on bag, which was ridiculous. I plan never to fly with you again."
Cons: "The plane didn't leave the terminal for over an hour after boarding!"
Pros: "Radio went out and the flight was delayed leaving. Also, when has Frontier has started charging for carry ons? I could have gone with Spirit if I'd known that... During the delay passengers were welcome to get off the flight but were reminded several times how much it would cost to rebook if they missed the reloading process ($99.00). After delay the staff was offering complimentary beverages due to the delay...(how much does it really cost to offer water & sodas?) So I would have been charged for a cup of water??? The staff seemed rude and several times I was nudged, slammed, bumped into (I was in an aisle seat) and ever was acknowledged by the crew members who did it. It just seems overall that it was all about the money that the employees are unhappy and that it is not about the satisfaction of the client. First and last time I'll travel with you...."
Cons: "Frontier is the worse airline I ever flown with. The customer service was horrible. Not to mention, my flight was delayed by two hours because the plane was too heavy to fly. I understand the delay and the need to fly safely, however NO ONE would give the passengers updates. We sat on the plane on the tarmac for two hours not knowing when we were going to take off or status of connecting flights. In the interim, I missed my connecting flight and was stuck and delayed yet again"
Cons: "Having to pay for carry on baggage and to choose a seat is ridiculous. Will never fly Frontier again. Seats were uncomfortable."
Pros: "This trip was affordable and on schedule, which is all I need. I will be watching Frontier fares in the future"
Cons: "We were about thirty minutes late leaving saying they were still loading bags. We got in late and they told us some bags didn't make it' but to check at the baggage carousel 37. We waited about thirty minutes they then came down and told us none of the bags made it."
Pros: "Boarded quickly"
Cons: "Chairs dont recline and you nade nepay 40 dollars for carry on."
Pros: "The crew was fine. Very professional. Plane was clean."
Cons: "No notice up front that carry on luggage would be charged $30 each way. Had to pay for everything snacks, drinks. I would not be surprised if the bathrooms had a charge. No entertainment. Seats are so close together that they are made not to recline."
Pros: "good legroom"
Cons: "uncomfortable seats, small trays"
Pros: "Some jackhole took my seat and wouldn't move I called ahead about additional charges and they lied to me"
Pros: "staff was nice"
Cons: "i think it is ridiculous to have to pay extra for carry on bags and a seat. the ticket was not any cheaper than other airlines."
Pros: "I cancelled my flight a day after I purchased my ticket. The wait on the phone was ridiculous, 45 min. Come on, the customer service could have been much better."
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "I don't like the fact that you don't have the option to choose your seats before paying and if you do ask for a better seat they charge you. The price for checking in a bag is ridiculous."
Pros: "Frontier's new seats are incredibly uncomfortable"
Cons: "Perhaps I should have - but I did not know that with Frontier airlines, you have to pay for every little thing. I booked Frontier because I wanted to take my daughters to see their Grandpa, perhaps for the last time and this was the best price I found. It wasn't a huge savings, but like many families every little bit helps. So you can imagine my surprise when we go to check in and I find I have to pay $45/ bag. And of course, this will happen both ways. So my savings just went far out the window."
Pros: "Guy playing music in terminal"
Cons: "The seating, they should probably tell you up front that when you pay the extra $50 for a seat with leg room that the ones in the exit isle do not recline. It is utter nonsense that those seats cost so much to be more uncomfortable than any other seat on the plane"
Pros: "Quick flight."
Cons: "Changed gate without notice. Seats did not recline. Paid extra for setting next to spouse and had to pay extra for carrying on bags. Too much!"
Pros: "It was a great Spirit trip there are no food, entertainment, etc. on this me friendly crew"
Pros: "Better than expected. Good no-nonsense travel solution. I didn’t have much to bring for a long-weekend trip, so no charge for my backpack."
Pros: "Crew are extremely courteous"
Cons: "The fact that I have to get onto a long queue to print a boarding pass after I had already checked-in online and had a copy of my boarding on my smartphone"
Pros: "Everything cost extra drinks snacks Cary on bags check bags. Seats."
Pros: "Timely departure and arrival."
Pros: "Staff was amazing and helpful"
Cons: "No complaints"
Cons: "no Wi-Fi or free drinks"
Pros: "I got an exit row seat giving me extra leg room."
Cons: "I felt like I was traveling with a hoard of first-time flying refugees. Some didn’t know how to operate a seat belt! Despite getting a high dose flu shot months ago, I contracted the flu on board and have been sick all week (MD diagnosis). The $52 fee to check one 30 lb bag is crazy."
Cons: "The seats are super cramped. It would be been nice to at least get some water for free."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Excellent crew, the crew member who did the announcements was so clear and professional, a tr"
Pros: "flight attendants were friendly"
Cons: "The flight went well but overall I was not pleased with Spirit and do not plan on using them anymore! I had to pay for my luggage which I'm use to carry on being free and the flight was delayed twice!!"
Pros: "Everything went smoothly."
Cons: "I had a small duffle bag with me and my wife a small suitcase. We never had any problems with any other airlines and we do fly quite a lot. However, the check-in agent said I had to pay $50 for each piece. The extra luggage costs would be the same if not more than the tickets from other airlines."
Pros: "Everyone very friendly! Great customer service!"
Cons: "Other than the chairs aren't that comfortable! I have no complaints"
Pros: "Convenient. Quick"
Cons: "Everything was good. No complaints"
Pros: "The crew was very polite and curtious."
Pros: "Cheap seats and you get what you pay for."
Cons: "Paying $3 for a soda"
Pros: "2 hour delay in Boston caused delay in Baltimore to Dallas. Not happy with $52 charge both ways on small luggage. Will not fly with this airline again. Will pay more upfront to fly with another."
Pros: "The worst airlines and customer service ever. No more sprit after my last bad experience with spirit airlines."
Pros: "They boarded quickly and were on time."
Cons: "Chairs don't recline. You have to pay for carry-on and water."
Pros: "The price!"
Cons: "The tight space and no bags except a personal bag."
Pros: "The ticket was cheap. Crew was nice. Updates for delays were efficient."
Cons: "Seats don't recline, no complimentary beverage, no tv or earphone jack, 40 Ib limit when everyone else is 50, price tag for everything!!!! Pack extremely light!"
Cons: "Way hostess treat people with respect"
Pros: "Everything was great no complaints"
Cons: "I have no complaints , I had a good experience"
Pros: "The crew was funny and even made jabs at the airline."
Cons: "This is my 4th bad experience with Spirit (I'm a glutton for punishment). I've yet to have a flight that was on time...something is usually broken on the plane (very nice to hear before boarding...if you board at all). It may seem like a great idea to lock in a great rate for the initial flight, but after fee upon fee...it just turns into an uncomfortable flight next to Bob who is complaining the whole time about his FIRST experience. I keep thinking I'll give them another try, but unfortunately this was my last attempt. Catch ya on the other side, Spirit."
Pros: "Cheap fare"
Cons: "Have to pay for anything beyond ticket"
Pros: "The fact that I landed in Texas and didn't end up Rwanda is a plus"
Cons: "Apparently you have to show up exactly 45 min before boarding OR ELSE they'll lock the reps out and make you reschedule along with a $99 fee. Group that in with the fee for having an extra carry on (50), checking IN the bag ( another 50 bucks) and having it being overweight (30) , and you have one happy wallet. This was only the tip of the iceberg, as getting through the layover was a trip of its own. Being boarded on the plane, then forced to board off in view of "maintenance", then later going through the exact same thing (on the exact same plane) wasnt exactly on the itinerary that evening. A flight that was supposed to arrive in DFW around 8 didn't make its way there till 1 am."
Cons: "They take too long checking people in for there flight making them late and missing there flight"
Cons: "Flew bwi to download and as we were landing the flight attendant announced flight connections and then she said "all of you going to New Orleans can't tell you want happened to your flight over the intercom". Then they said nothing else. About 20 of us went to the gate e18 for the flight and the gate sign said On Time and the plane was there however it was 1pm and boarding was supposed to start and no gate agents and no crew ever showed up. A nearby gate said they cancelled the flight. No emails or text from Spirit. So I had to rebook on American to New Orleans and run across tour terminal C for a 149pm flight. Will be asking for a refund and will never book Spirit again and may decide to use kayak less for flights and just use standard United or delta direct websites. Joe"
Cons: "All the hidden fees."
Pros: "The service and the entire crew from boarding to flight attendants were caring..."
Cons: "Some travelers seem to be inconvenienced by the fact that they were told to pay huge some compared to the ticket fare for their tiny follow me luggage. Spirit should be a little flexible about the matter... Gives wrong first impression."
Pros: "Late and poor service. Terrible and will never use them again. 5 hours of delay on one leg"
Cons: "Everything was bad. 5 hours of delay on one leg. Late on others. Terrible"
Cons: "The baggage fees are through the roof!!"
Cons: "Misleading online check-in process - no participation in Pre-Check - Fees for no true seat upgrade"
Cons: "The smell and overall comfort was horrible."
Pros: "Location was easy to find"
Cons: "Not enough sitting in waiting area"
Pros: "Crew were friendly and funny."
Cons: "I don't like that they charge you more to carry on a bag than to check it in. Also very little leg room."
Cons: "Initial flight cost was cheap, but had to pay extra to bring a carry on onto the plan, and to buy water on the plane. Also had to pay to reserve our seats, and if you don't check in online before arriving they charge you more. On the plane the seats didn't lean back, there was no entertainment system, and the tray tables were very small and couldn't hold a laptop."
Pros: "The crew was great. Flight was smooth. The seats were very comfortable"
Cons: "The seating process was difficult at best. There was a mom with two kids and they were all in diiferent rows? I understand you have a random seating policy, but it would do wonders for everyone on the flight if all members of the group were put in the same row for safety and child accountability i.e to keep them from crying the whole flight."
Cons: "They veiled the need to pay for carry on, seat selection, every amenity. The seats are garbage, don't recline"
Cons: "I should never be charged $50 for bags. EVER!"
Cons: "Overhead bins were almost empty and a carry on and personal item aren't free. The further back u sit the tighter the rows are and they dont recline, very uncomfortable for more than 2 hours."
Cons: "No flight updates at gate. Delays with no explanation. Bag fees. No in flight movies."
Pros: "Check in was fast, and ...... No that's about it. The on board crew were pleasant but seemed to be focused on selling over priced soda rather than the passenger comfort."
Cons: "Boarding was hectic, 5 people in wheel chairs not including myself as a 100% disabled veteran. Instead of seeing the situation the agents just rushed everyone down the ramp and then seem to be surprised when they get a traffic jam in the doorway of the aircraft..... Dumb dumb dumb.... 1st and last time on your airline. What's with the seat space?, Hey executives, look down those things hanging from your waist are called legs and we all get a pair...... Sure you'll do fine working the low end of the flight travel game, but you should look to Virgin airlines as an example of how to do it right."
Cons: "Serious information screw-up! Our Monday flight out of Dallas was cancelled because of weather in Baltimore. Unfortunately Spirit did not let us know until after we had spent $70 plus tip on an airport shuttle. Spirit was unable to put us on the Tuesday flight because it was full. So we got a spot on Wednesday's 2:15 PM flight. (We rented a car and incurred more debt on top of the unnecessary shuttle.) BUT on Tuesday, when we tried to check in online, we were unable to do so. We called to find out that the 2:15 flight the next day had been "cancelled". They could put us on for the following day; Thursday. I had already taken two extra days off of work. We chose to take a later flight out that would take us to Chicago for a significant layover. Luckily we went to the airport early and discovered.... The 2:15 flight had NOT been cancelled AND it had four empty seats on it. The nice ladies at the Spirit counter were shocked to hear our story. They made sure we got on the 2:15 flight which kept us from getting home at 3:00 AM."
Pros: "Boarding was on time and was done effortlessly. Very friendly staff."
Cons: "The seats are very uncomfortable. Entertainment was non-existent so I cannot rate it. Food was for sale at a very high cost."
Cons: "First, I haven't told to pay for my carry on. Second, the services on the plane was awful. Last but not the last, I wouldn't recommended to friends!!!!!"
Pros: "Great Price, good service, on time!"
Pros: "Really enjoyed the odd quirks to the announcements, seats were pretty roomy, and the last minute price was great."
Cons: "Glad we brought our own drinks on board."
Pros: "I didn't die"
Cons: "Seats are far too close together. Extremely uncomfortable. Not very clean, gum smeared all over the seat in front of me. The pushing of the credit card was too much."
