Pros: "Kind crew."
Pros: "Seat cramped"
Cons: "It took only 20 minutes to fly there but 20 minutes waiting to get off the ground in 25 minutes to circle around Philadelphia before landing.

Cons: "This flight was delayed by almost 5 hours. While I understand there are some delays sometimes, this was the ONLY flight to Greensboro out of DCA, and the times kept changing throughout the day, even though the gate agents knew that the issue was that the crew was delayed. There should be backup crew available and when there are delays, the passengers should be kept informed. There should be other flight options available when this happens. I never received an apology from anyone I encountered throughout the process, and some personnel were rude even though I was polite."
Pros: "Perfect from start to finish"

Pros: "Nothing really, very upsetting start of a vacation."
Cons: "The layover in Boston was an hour or so, but the miscommunication between American Airlines and Iberia was such, that my luggage never left the US. I am very upset cause Iberia did not even provided any good ground help in Lisbon - Portugal, with the most rude personnel I ever had to deal with that was actually annoyed I was complaining they lost my luggage, they offer no assisatance."
Pros: "Smooth and easy flight."
Cons: "Food was not good at all."
Cons: "It was not British airline but was contracted to American airline. It lacked class."
Pros: "The person at the luggage area, she gave me the ticket, very nice and polite the only professional person."
Cons: "Didn't let me take my hand luggage, small that complies with the size and told me only at gate, I said I had things that could brake and showed no concern and they would send it to my final distinction instead giving it to me in the end of first flight...I've been traveling around the world and the disrespect for customers and poor service of most of US carrier is amazing... some African companies are much better. on the second flight, almost two hours delay, the plane from philly to Lisbon, old, just s few tv screens, exactly like the North Korean airways..., bad food, my tray stayed with me the whole fly, flight attendant not very professional with no concern for customers and job."
Cons: "Lost connection"
Pros: "Overall the flight was good, on time"
Cons: "Nothing at this stage"
Cons: "Cannot believe how American a treated it's passengers. 3 hour delay to JFK. No apologies. Missed connection to Paris. Not any customer service agents to be found in JFK at 11:30 pm. No explanation on what next. No hotel.. Nada. I'll never travel with American again."
Cons: "My flight was cancelled, then rebooked three times, when I finally was able to fly almost 24 hours later, the flight was delayed by over an hour. Not acceptable service at all. Not interested in ever flying with American again."
Pros: "Boarding and debar king was quick."
Cons: "Attendant was surly, no coffee, no continental breakfast as indicated on the reservation. Very disappointed with in-flight service."
Pros: "The Resolution team assisted me initially when I arrived to correct an issue from my online attempt. The agent printed bag checks for me to my final destination and told me how to get needed boarding pass for the final stage. How wonderful to have pleasant and professional personal attention."
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."
Cons: "Attempted to make my connection which was in another terminal. Could not get onboard as they shut the doors. My rerouted flight was in a different terminal. Overall a very disappointing travel experience."
Pros: "Crew was ok, did their best considering the circumstances, but even they were getting aggravated and were short with the passengers near the end."
Cons: "The Washington airport is horrible. The gate we left from was not a gate but a series of doors that buses came to. This wouldn't be so bad if they were able to handle it in an orderly way, but the airport showed complete incompetence in organizing anything and there were people everywhere trying to find the right door which kept changing on them, and the times kept changing...it was a mess. Then, when we finally got on the plane and were about to take off, the air traffic control tower called and said that their flight path was incorrect and to not take off...but didn't give them a new flight path for nearly two hours as we sat on the runway. Nationalize the airports in DC, fire the whole lot and start fresh, I'd say."
Pros: "The flight was short, only 1.35 hours."
Cons: "To start, the boarding process is a chaos. First class and executive platinums should board first, but of course the gate agent was completely clueless and rude, even to an ExPlat. Althiugh the flight is only 1.35 hours, I was surprised that flight attendants didn't even make an effort to offer a drink service. No turbulence or anything, just seems they were lazy."
Pros: "The flight minus was very fast, 26 minutes"
Pros: "The crew was great. The flight attendants were pleasant and helpful and the pilot gave timely and useful announcements. The coffee and free cookies were quite good as well (surprisingly, especially for the coffee)."
Cons: "As a frequent United flyer, I was a bit taken aback to see that AA charges for their movie streaming to your personal device."
Cons: "This plane and especially its seats are the worst. If your taller than 5'5" I recommend to look for other options."
Pros: "The flight was only ten minutes late."
Cons: "Gate 35x at National just doesn't work. A woman fell on the ice trying to get to the shuttle bus, on which we sat for a long time before leaving for the plane. After a chaotic boarding, the plane sat around as the flight became late, and the pilots gave no explanation for the delay or hint of when we might take off."
Pros: "Pilot kept us in the know given congestion at LGA. And kept us safe because of expected turbulence."
Cons: "I feel like the airline should know LGA is backed up since they flight mostly the same schedule daily. Flight AA2174 should be pushed to a later time so passengers don't have to sit on the tarmac."
Cons: "Airline never assigned me a seat. They just told me what sea to sit in when I was boarding. I was concerned I would be bumped since when checking the airline said it could not assign a seat."
Cons: "Luggage that had recently been purchased and used only once was DESTROYED. Punctured completely through the hard sided case and cracked the length of the luggage - this is absolutely UNACCEPTABLE. Employees need to realize that we PAY for our luggage to be handled not manipulated. Maybe some people have money to burn, but for us, this is a hardship."
Cons: "Long delay at departing airport due to no flight crew"
Pros: "From start to finish the flight faced problems: unscheduled stop for refueling, change in planes for mechanical problems, emergency medical intervention, and more. Yet at every stage the flight crew and gate staff did an outstanding job communicating and seeking to alleviate passenger woes. With delays, we missed connections, and yet AA worked wonderfully to find alternatives. At the end of the day, we arrived at our destination, and even our luggage made the trip successfully! Wonderful courtesy, adaptability, and determination to serve. Thank you."
Pros: "Crew gave good service"
Cons: "The flight from ORD to Harrisburg was very cramped and did not have WiFi (means I couldnt work)."
Pros: "It was a short hop over to New York, so that's the only positive thing I can say."
Cons: "The plane was tiny, seats uncomfortable. Had to be bused to the plane, only 1 bus provided and had to be packed like sardines. Overall, a terrible experience."
Pros: "The landing in Phoenix finally here!!"
Cons: "The 5 plus hour flight but had to endure to get to Phoenix!!"
Pros: "It got me home, and around the time I was originally supposed to arrive"
Cons: "It left late, without any explanation as to why. It's pretty pathetic that I was thankful that AA got me home at all, considering they almost left me stranded in the wrong city, and the only reason I wasn't was no thanks to AA and thanks to Kayak."
Pros: "Uneventful, reasonably timely, not overcrowded, cheerful and friendly flight attendant"
Cons: "Long, needless wait in the cold, crowded, standing room only shuttle bus"
Pros: "Surprised that my flight was so painless! Boarding process was extremely easy (then again, it always is from Kansas City). Staff for professional and kind, the flight was not completely full so it didn't take long to to board and the flight landed on time."

Pros: "Entertainment, food, service, on-time landing (early!)"
Cons: "Many delays. Uncomfortable seats. No outlets on that particular plane."
Cons: "We were forced to deplane in DC and instructed to go to the United customer service counter to arrange our missed connections in Frankfurt. After standing in line at the United counter for 2 hours, we were told to go to our gate to re-board our plane. we wasted all that time standing and all but 2 agents had left the counter to take a break. it was EXTREMELY STRESSFUL not knowing what would happen to our missed connections. when we reboarded WE still did not have connecting flights.Also, on the United flight to Frankfurt, I had a premium economy seat and it was HORRIFIC. the extra leg room did NOT make the seat more comfortable and I SUFFERED greatly because I am recovering from an injury. Upon arrival in Frankfurt, after a great deal of begging, I got a hotel room for the night and upgrad to economy premium for the flight from Frankfurt to Addis. that Lufthana flight was better because my seat reclined somewhat but still I had a great deal of pain throughout the flight and I would have preferred to have been upgraded to business so that I could lay flat to ease my physical pain. Overall, the experience was extremely STRESSFUL and painful and the only way, I feel that Lufthana can repair this situation is to give me a free upgrade to business on my flight home.to Miami"

Pros: "The flight left on time"
Cons: "Baggage fees were very high for an extra bag. Service on the flight was overall ok. Boarding was slow and a little annoying. Gate agents were rude"

Cons: "Crammed seats, poor quality entertainment system (but at least with access to in-seat monitor, while on the way to the US that was not available), no additional amenities of any kind, including in the restroom, bad quality and insufficient quantity for food and drinks, and the usual/to-be-expected poor/disrespectful attitude of the United flight and gate attendants."
Pros: "Boarding was quick"
Cons: "Intercom anouncements on late night flight. Way too many about the ball game"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and courteous."

Cons: "Old plane and was not clean."
Pros: "The flight crew got us there quickly and safely."
Cons: "Food was sub par but that is about what you can expect from any US carrier, the crew was disorganized and let people move around before taking off making people finding their seats occupied on arrival. Service members were curt and woke us up for some kind of morning snack they call breakfast when my guest and I were clearly asleep and not interested. I really wish this flight was operated by Lufthansa..."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Crew did not get all passengers drink"
Pros: "The flight itself was great. Good movies, professional crew."
Cons: "The whole seating process was a nightmare. They didn't assign seats and when I tried to call first they said wait until 24 hours in advance or pay $100 THEN when I tried to check in 24 hours in advance they wouldn't assign seats bc the first leg was operated by United. They then said United couldn't assign seats at check in - only at the gate AND THEN the said they couldn't assign seats for our second leg because it was operated by Luftansa. It was ridiculous added stress on our honeymoon and my husbands first cross Atlantic trip. Made me never want to fly Luftansa/United transatlantic again (and I have been a milageplus card holder so that's saying something)"
Pros: "Very friendly staff. Easy flight, no issues."
Cons: "Little more leg room. Eye mask would have been nice."
Cons: "Paid extra for economy plus and still was too uncomfortable to sleep."

Pros: "Great flight"
Cons: "A la ahora de irnos hubo muchos contratiempo por el tiempo pero por el vuelo después que nos fuimos fue excelente"
Pros: "Flight crew was pleasant."
Cons: "Very confusing boarding, multiple flights in same gate with no obvious line. Plane interior very bare-bones, not updated in any way for comfort or ergonomics. No entertainment or food available, though it was a short flight. Plane responded terribly when we hit significant turbulence."
Pros: "Smooth flight, nice staff, on time"
Cons: "Not enough leg room!!! The new planes cram us in even tighter. Unless you pay more, you suffer. Why should we have to pay more just because we are tall??!! Pocket for book etc is way too small."

Pros: "Food was pretty tasty and entertainment worked well."
Cons: "The crew was extremely rude and seemed annoyed a passenger would even think of asking for assistance."
Pros: "Meals, for a coach ticket, were surprisingly good."
Pros: "As usual the staff were great! The flight was on time."
Cons: "No snacks were distributed. I would've thought they could've handed out pretzels or peanuts."
Cons: "Social distancing guidelines should be applied on plane. Rather than leave 20+ seats empty, and cram everyone 6 to a row. Flight was over 2 hours delayed due to not having maintenance staff available. And then I was crammed in next to an oversized individual where we couldn’t even keep the armrest down."
Pros: "The legroom we paid for."
Cons: "This time the attendant still wouldn’t let anyone in rows 2 & 3 place the carry on they had paid extra for in the overhead bins, but she didn’t make me put it under the seat in front of me (this losing the extra leg room we paid for), so I put it in a bin behind me. The plane was late, but the pilot made up most of the time, but then it took 55 minutes to get our luggage."
Cons: "Seat comfort and room for plus size people. More than water to drink. Snacks!"
Pros: "The overall flight and crew was great no complaints"
Cons: "Your purse shouldn’t be considered a carryon unless it’s larger then the average personal carryon and one complimentary beverage and snack on flights over 2 hours"
Cons: "Don’t like flight was delay Should offer tea or juice for more than 1 hour travel"
Pros: "The crew was great. In a good mood and accommodated my requests. (For complimentary water and a trading card to remember my trip)"
Cons: "Seat was awfully uncomfortable. I’m only a slim built 5’9” woman and my knees were indenting the next seatback. And the aisle was too busy for me but that could have been fixed with paying for a window. I do not recommend flying in these economy seats for any longer than 2.5 hours."
Pros: "The crew was the best part of this trip. I also had an empty seat beside me, so made it more comfortable."
Cons: "I understand the low prices for airfare require lower costs, but coffee and tea should be included. I asked for a cup of hot water because I brought my own tea bag along."
Pros: "Great economical way to get there!"
Pros: "They allowed carry on bag,"
Pros: "Great flight. Not full flight-had ROOM!! Flight 15 min faster than expected-excellent!!!"

Pros: "All employees were friendly. They did a great job of keeping things moving when we were boarding, they also did a great job dealing with difficult passengers. The plane was clean and was very nice. I think the plane was new and I enjoyed the flight very much."
Pros: "Crew was good. They were late boarding the plane, but the captain made up the time in the air."
Cons: "There's extra charges for carry ons and beverages Majority of the seats have no leg room No in-flight entertainment or wifi"
Cons: "I signed up for special services for meet and assist and no one helped me."
Pros: "Good price"
Cons: "Worst trip ever"
Pros: "Easy to check in."
Cons: "No outlets. Too expensive carry on fee."
Cons: "The flight was delayed three hours and information was not made available until after we arrived at the airport. This made for a very long and avoidable wait."
Cons: "You're charged for everything. When checking in you have to pay for your seats... what's the point of spending $350 on a ticket if you have to spend another $60 on your seat. What was the ticket for?"
Cons: "Frontier bag drop lines were insanely long; boarding process took forever for reasons that were never explained to us, and then in Austin we waited for our bags for 45 minutes. We asked the information kiosk about it and they told us "Frontier always runs late.""
Pros: "The basic ticket prices are very good; however, you get what you pay for. Comparing discounted airlines to most others you will see where the costs are cut. There will be less personal, less accommodations, and you will have to pay for the little "perks"."
Cons: "The four hour delay caused by a hydronic leak that couldn't be fixed on-site, the wait for a new plane, then sitting on the Tarmac for 20 minutes after being pushed away from the gate. Also, the check-in line was really long and slow because Frontier didn't have enough personnel to handle the job efficiently. The gate personnel need training in talking into the Mike, so that passengers can understand what they are saying."
Pros: "I liked the price for the base ticket."
Cons: "I really didn't like paying for seats, and having those paid-for seats ultimately be sandwiched between rows of hysterically crying and screaming babies. Seat in front of us, seat behind us; the 1yo in front screamed the entire flight, the 1yo behind us screamed half the flight and kicked the seat the other half. If an airline makes you pay for a seat, they sure probably ensure some sort of quality. Rolling the dice with the automated seat assignment would have been better."
Pros: "The plane was bigger than most"
Cons: "The bumpiest ride I've ever had. And I fly a lot. The staff was ghetto and laughed at customers and were mean. Couldn't hear instructions over the intercom on the plane. Paid 2x's what a flight should cost due to bags and extra fees. Never again."
Cons: "It was disgustingly dirty. They have striped down all perks, which is fine... it should make it easier to maintain... so maintain the plane! Gross! And what a horrible landing! Perfect weather and I nearly lost my lunch! We fly frequently and thought we would give this a try. Big mistake!"
Pros: "Nothing. Will never fly frontier again. Told all my friends and they aren't either."
Cons: "Everything....Seats are uncomfortable. You purchase the ticket , thinking it's a good deal then they you go to check in an they charge you 20 dollars for the seat and charge $35 for a checked bag. Then when you think the charges are over... I check in for the return flight and I have to pay again for the seat and the checked bag."
Pros: "From boarding the plane, to exiting the plane the crew was exceptional."
Cons: "the add on prices at all air lines for every little thing. bringing a bag should not be a option but a given"
Cons: "I paid for the upgrades first row seat. There was no padding, I could feel the metal seat on my back and bottom. Very uncomfortable! Seats do not recline. No entertainment. I didn't buy any food, but they do give free water. I used to like Frontier, but would not use them again:( Maybe for a one hour flight, but it's not so cheap and uncomfortable even in the nice seats! I heard horror stories about the regular seats being terrible, but not sure the $$$ ones are better but for more leg room."
Pros: "Price was ok but they charge for your seat assignment. Seats do NOT adjust. I have a broken back and the pain was more than the cheap price would cover. Staff was as good as a no frills flight could give. Gate crew in DC was great but Orlando was a soup sandwich. I've seen worse but only in the third world."
Cons: "They cancelled my flight outright less than 12 hours before it was scheduled to take off and informed me the earliest I could get to my destination was a flight 48 hours later. I had a job interview the next day and grad school starting the day afterward, so I had to spend $500 to book a flight on a different airline in order to get back in time. Worst travel experience ever. I will never fly Frontier again and will encourage all of my contacts to never use them."
Cons: "I felt taken advantage of by the surcharges."
Pros: "Prices are decent and everything is a la carte. Crew was accommodating and had more food options than other airlines."
Cons: "Had to pay $35 to bring a laptop bag? Absurd. Also paid extra for front row believing that it was first class however first class did not exist on this flight. Took almost an hour to drop off my bag even with the online check-in. Because of this alone I will be avoiding Frontier unless I have no checked baggage."
Pros: "On time flights and friendly crew."
Cons: "No entertainment, and all food & drink had to be purchased."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "crew was not very engaged. Cramped, bumpy 3 hr ride...couldn't wait for it to end."
Cons: "Extra charges required when getting Boarding Pass Staff was good"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2-3/4 hours"
Cons: "Everything. Everything about his flight was terrible. My flight to San Fran was delayed 6 hrs and the one back to Cleveland is already delayed 2 hrs. The customer service on the phone was horrible and so not helpful. I will never fly frontier again."
Pros: "I like averything about timing and been punctual."
Cons: "You have to pay for everything! The seats are uncomfortable. They should have at least free WiFi, so you feel the pain of the seats!"
Cons: "paying for carry on and checked bags"
Cons: "Look like frontier is always late"
Pros: "Clean. Business like. You pay for what you get...but there is a point. Studebaker once had a car called the "Scotsman." The chrome was replaced by black paint to save money. They were ridiculed."
Cons: "Non adjustable seats. Noted that steward crew was also cleanup crew. I saw a TV show (the Boss?) where the CEO spends time working the frontlines undercover. He found morale low, and personnel were expected to be fresh and professional after bouts physical labor. The stewarding staff ~ the airline's point of contact with customers ~ were held in less esteem by customers."
Pros: "very warm staff"
Cons: "Seats too uncomfortable for a 4 hour flight"
Pros: "No frills flight. The pilot was great in informing us about the storms and how he would avoid them. He did a good job. The boarding was great and the plane was clean."
Cons: "Seats are not the best in comfort terms. you have to pay even for a soft drink!. No water, no peanuts! How stingy. Also, I am totally confused about carry-on and check-in luggages. I saw whole lot of carry-on luggage which was much bigger than what the website said you'd allow. Were they all paid for? or just allowed without paying? Luggage policy should be changed because it is very difficult and misleading."
Pros: "Seats were new and clean"
Cons: "The plane arrived at 2:30 pm at the international gates, but arrived over a half hour late to our gate (almost 6pm), so boarding was delayed. Then we sat on the plane for an hour waiting for a pilot. And the weather was poor, so we waited another half hour to leave. In total we left 2 hours late. And the flight was only 1 hour and 20 min long. The weather the airline can't help, but the other 2 problems seemed to be poor management by the company."
Pros: "The crew is pleasant and the seat comfort level is bearable."
Cons: "However, the flight was delayed and changed gate at short notice. There is no entertainment available, not even at own expense."
Cons: "The seats no longer recline making them uncomfortable. Carryon luggage is charged even a soda is charged! Probably will never use again."
Pros: "Crew very nice. Ticket and gate agents helpful, although a little stressed."
Cons: "Seating cramped and uncomfortable. Plane on this leg of my trip dirty - didn't want to place my purse under seat due to filthy carpet. Piece of window trim fell off during boarding; took 40 min to get maintenance to come up with roll of duct tape and make temp fix - flight delayed more than 1 hr overall."
Pros: "Crew were arguing with passengers over seating arrangements and when it came time to throw out garbage at the end they completely ignored half of the rows. Even after the lady next to me yelling to get their attention."
Cons: "See above."
Pros: "Nothing to like"
Cons: "Disenchanted employees, tiny seat space, surprise fees for carry-on bags that cost just as much as a flight. Luckily we caught this before we arrived at the airport. There is no mention when you purchase from Kayak. After being on the phone for 45 min they reluctantly gave us a fee waiver. They charge you for drinks and also try to charge you to select your seat early. I did not get to sit next to my companion on either leg of the flight because we did not pay extra to choose our seats. No entertainment unless you pay. Worst flight I've ever taken. Both flights had delays."
