Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Good entertainment"
Cons: "Four hours late"
Cons: "It is very difficult to contact the airline via phone. I had to wait almost an hour to speak to a representative. I was told I could call 36 hours before flight to get seat reservations. They should improve phone service. Otherwise flight was very good."
Cons: "It was great!!!"
Pros: "Landed early. Everyone was nice."
Cons: "The plane was freezing."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and I had to buy a ticket at the last minute on a different airline"
Pros: "My gate change and I was not informed"
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Free drinks beyond water would be noce"
Pros: "We were delayed 1 & half hours to board & then sat on plane another hour & a half listening to captain LIE to us about why we could not take off!"
Cons: "Being lied to! Sitting on a crowded plane forever!"
Pros: "Orlando's kindness"
Pros: "We went to the wring airport (BWI instead of DCA) but JetBlue was able to get us on a flight boarding in only 25 minutes at BWI. No problems at gate; we gate-checked our bags, and being in row 20, we're happy that boarding started at the back of the cabin (how sensible!)."
Cons: "My husband's seat back screen died halfway into the flight."
Pros: "Free upgraded seat"
Pros: "First time on Jet Blue...good rid."
Cons: "boarding the plane appeared a little disorganized"
Cons: "Idled on the tarmac for over an hour. Ruined my day."
Pros: "Great experience - everything ran on time, comfortable seats with lots of leg room, and an awesome all female crew!"
Pros: "The crew were friendly and very funny.."
Cons: "I was very upset because I was flying alone for the first time and there was no tv or movies . I was nervous and took comfort in the thought at least I can keep myself entertained."
Cons: "3 hours delay"
Pros: "The pilot nailed the landing. I always grade the landings from 1-10. This was the first 10 I have ever given."
Pros: "Most room on an aircraft in the last 10 years."
Cons: "The reception of the in flight TV was poor"
Cons: "Unprofessional crew, plane that seemed to have technical problems, entertainment system that was nonoperational, seatbelt sign on entire flight, strange fumes that several passengers complained about."
Pros: "The flight attendants were so sweet and thoughtful."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled. When tried to reschedule diferencia flight wouldn't let me reserve seats. Got bad seats in counter. The lady was mean the changed gates at very last minute. It got delayed."
Cons: "Cancelled for rain??? No offer of compensation any kind, not even taxi to a hotel. Nothing and had to wait 24 hours to try to get home again."
Cons: "Bad attitudes, long lines, and no options. TERRIBLE experience and my vacation had to be canceled."
Pros: "The flights are good, plenty of room and great service."
Cons: "The 3 hour delay for "weather" was a bit much after sitting all day in the airport. Since no storms were in the NJ area until after 2am. The delay I'm guessing was due to Gov Christies ridiculous FAA changes. I cannot hold JetBlue responsible for this but anyone flying into the north east should count on a delay or canceled flights."
Pros: "Best price and better aircraft/service and amenities than most."
Cons: "We were a bit late (30 min) taking off but that was an airport issue, not airline."
Pros: "Seats are comfortable."
Cons: "Flight delayed about an hour. Booked more than 4 months in advance but apparently seats were not assigned on this segment. Not even at check-in, only at gate. We were early, but they could not seat our family together. Not acceptable. This part worked fine on our way to FLL, so there's no excuse for not working on the flight back."
Pros: "The staff was so friendly. They accommodated a bachelor party's request to collect wedding advice from fellow passengers on a napkin and recognized a few birthdays. The stewardess making the announcements was very genuine in her well wishes and being part of everyone's day."
Cons: "40 min taxi time but not much we could do about that."
Cons: "3 hours delayed"
Pros: "We had to make a flight change due to bad weather in FL. It was done quickly, efficiently and at no cost. Wow, what service!"

Pros: "Staff was VERY friendly"
Cons: "Flight was delayed an hour and a half!"
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "1 hour late"
Pros: "Jet Blues onboarding person did a great job of managing expectations during a 2.5 hour delay imposed by Newark airport officials."
Pros: "Snack choices are good, boarding from back is efficient and very cordial crew"
Cons: "No updates on a delayed flt being posted on departure board, when I went to check at gate flt had boarded and I missed flt. UPDATE DEPARTURE BOARD WITH RIGHT INFO!!!!!!"
Pros: "Friendly staff, love boarding from back to front. Clean plane"
Cons: "There were some delays taking off but the pilot was really transparent and it ended up not being severe at all."
Pros: "Great price great service for all staffs in all areas"
Pros: "The stewardess was very nice"
Cons: "We had to deboarding the plane due to electrical reasons, which is unfortunate but I understand. However.. The pilot scared everyone when he said told us that we were deboarding and literally said "it's better to find out now while we are still on the ground because it could have happened in the air and that would not have been good". As someone who has flight anxiety that was not something that sat well. In addition we were not given any instruction on what to do at that point. Should we try to find another flight?.. Should we wait for the plane to get fixed?.. Are we all boarding another plane?... Everyone was confused and frustrated!"
Cons: "Delayed boarding due to air traffic was unavoidable. However, allowing earlier passengers to board with multiple carry-ons, of which some were questionable in size, did not allow passengers boarding later to have any room for theirs. Desk agent did ask for six volunteers to check their bags on a full flight. Adherence to the rules of size and number would be fairer to all passengers. Crew was very nice. Previous experience with Jet Blue was very positive."
Pros: "The crew was excellent - they did their best in a bad situation and should be commended for that - they let us get out of the plane after learning after we boarding that we would have to wait 2 hours to take off - they let us get out to go to the bathroom and get something to eat and bring back to the plane - it was very cold in the aircraft and there were not enough blankets to go around - additional blankets should be available - the chips that were served once we took off are not sufficient for passengers that were at the airport 2 hours earlier, experienced a 4 hour delay and still face a 3 hour flight- meal arrangements should be offered when passengers are facing such long delays - the free WIFI was a plus and the seats are comfortable"
Pros: "First time flying with Jet Blue and it was great. Loved the leg room and amenities at every seat."
Pros: "Everything was on-time, comfortable and quick."
Cons: "Minor issues: the wifi was useless and the I wished that the TV had closed captions."
Cons: "There is not a good snacks. Other than that service and confort are on their level."
Pros: "Fast boarding, clean aircraft, friendly crew. Pitch space is very good and in "even more space" it's excellent"
Cons: "The choice of food could be better, for me the seats where not that comfortable but I loved the extra space. I'm 6 feet+ tall"
Cons: "Told about our 2 1/2 hour flight delay at the original boarding time, then kept at the airport until 1:30 AM when the flight was finally cancelled."
Pros: "Seating was spacious in 4A, and I am a larger than average person. Loved the Terra Chips for a snack! Generously gave me the whole can of Coke Zero, where some airlines dole drinks out in half can servings. Left and arrived on time."
Cons: "There was some entertainment at Ft Lauderdale Airport when we arrived. The person who knew how to drive the bridge between aircraft and terminal was not there. Someone pitched in and rammed the aircraft around 4 times, trying to make a good connection."
Cons: "The flight was very turbulent, and the captain did a poor job of keeping the passengers informed. In situations like that information goes a long way in comforting people."
Pros: "The inflight experience was very good (full sized drink and choice of snack), plenty of leg room and comfortable seats."
Cons: "The check in line was painfully slow (lack of staff - only 2 stations open with a long line waiting). Also, the onboard entertainment system is a bit outdated (no on demand function, works much like an old style TV)"
Pros: "Crew was great, the flight was smooth, and the experience was awesome"
Pros: "Kept on schedule despite rough air. Professional crew and a clean aircraft."
Cons: "Seats are tight on legroom."
Pros: "Quick and painless, and so appreciate Delta’s respect for social distancing while other flagship carriers have returned to booking full flights"
Cons: "Great flight all around."
Pros: "It was quick"
Cons: "Horribly shaky. Thought I was going to throw up. The male flight attendant came off as rude. Just happy I got off the plane alive because it was rough"
Cons: "After we boarded and were already sitting in our sits the stewardess came and removed our bags from the overhead compartment for another person with a larger bag! We ended up storing our bags under the sits in-front. The way it was done it was rude and with no consideration for our comfort."
Cons: "They cancelled my flight. I never flew home. I missed my little Sister's graduation. :o("
Cons: "The connecting flight from Atlanta to NY was rescheduled for an hour and fifteen minutes later, boarding for the delayed flight started late, closed doors were another 20 minutes late, spend another hour or so waiting for confirmations, during which no AC is on because of a malfunction on the plane with the electricity unit. Due to rough air conditions, no in-flight service, or very limited one - and all of those are fine by me, and not the airlines' fault at all. But then, during all these unexpected conditions, I can't even use the in flight entertainment system as i use Bluetooth earphones, and to get earphones I have to buy them for 2$. To earn excellent service, inspite of all the delays, AC malfunction and unpleasantness all you had to do was give those 2$ earphones for free. I have another flight with SkyTeam coming up and I do hope it won't be as unpleasant as it is a much longer flight."
Pros: "Staff was friendly."
Cons: "During boarding, the sign wasn’t updated after Zone 1. I was watching the board from a distance while on the phone, waiting for Zone 4 to come up. Fortunately, I heard them say “final boarding” over the intercom; otherwise I could have missed my flight."

Cons: "Sitting as they had to fix a broken plane. Missing my connecting flight and getting in late."
Pros: "Small plane. Very good service. Did not suffer through the crazy multi level boarding calls that some airlines have. No super secret airline clubs that board first. Flying into the Marine terminal is the best part of the trip."
Cons: "The wifi didn't seem to work at all on the plane."
Pros: "An excellent flight"
Cons: "Delayed 2 hours. Pilot said we were about to take off, sat in plane for another hour before we even moved."
Cons: "Flight did not leave on time. Weather conditions were not a factor."
Pros: "Friendly crew,boarding is fast and easy."

Cons: "Delayed flight which caused us to miss layover flight. Delta was quick to fix the issue and upgraded our seating to Comfort+. Time lost for vacation was my only issue."
Pros: "Cockpit kept us informed regarding minor maintenance delay."
Cons: "Was charged twice for one beverage. Also a receipt was not offered so this makes me think the flight attendant knew about the mistake but didn't want to address the error."
Pros: "COMMUNICATION FROM PILOT"
Cons: "LGA DELAYS AS USUAL."
Pros: "Arrived within 15 minutes of scheduled time"

Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "Booked my flight 2 weeks in advance, purchased travel insurance in case of emergency. A family member, the person I shared custody of a child with died of liver cancer, and Delta and the insurance company refused to honor my request for refund or reschedule."
Cons: "Delta used a word "delayed" for canceling a flight. This is deceiving! Not to mention an out an hour delay and the reasons could have been easily prevented; maintenances."

Cons: "Getting cancelled by Jet Blue 8 hrs earlier for weather with no apology."

Finally she brought my daughter and I some coffee. i ask for sugar and she said im very busy you have to wait....eventually she gave me one packet of sugar. I had to ask for another sugar for my daughter , so when i ask she gets upset and tells me i have to wait but there as a white who ask for assistance and she was very polite to her."
Cons: "Mechanical issues, late late late, bad communication, no apologies or compensation for huge waste of time."
Pros: "We did eventually reach our destination safe and sound"
Cons: "In flight service on AA was very disappointing. This was a cross-country flight of 5 hours at the dinner hour. The plane was full [ as usual these days ] seat space was tight [ as usual these days ], but cabin service was practically invisible. The two stewards made one pass with the beverage cart, and that was it for the duration!! On a five hour flight!! When I went back for a beverage, the stewards were chatting at the rear compartment. This was the poorest American Airlines service that I have experienced in fifty years. I will avoid them in the future. Don"
Pros: "The airplane was new. It had power plug and entertainment at each seat. It has a fabulous selections of entertainment for all ages. Comfortable seats as well."
Cons: "The crew only came offered drinks 1 time for a 5 hours flight. They did come by to offer room temperature water mid way through the flight. Food choices were minimal."

Pros: "Exit row seat very roomy with plenty of leg room."
Cons: "Flight from ORD to LGA delayed even though the plane was already at the gate in ORD. No announcement explaining why it was delayed. What was worse was that after landing at LGA, baggage tagged as Priority did not come out first, it came out much later - after numerous non-priority baggage came out. This is not the first time this has happened at LGA. What's the point of tagging it as Priority if it won't be handled that way?"

Pros: "Attentive and friendly crew."
Pros: "Flight was cancelled after 5 hours"

Pros: "Great flight. Nice airplanes and friendly hostesses."
Pros: "it was easy to check in and short layovers"

Cons: "Flight attendant called cops on passenger sitting next to me to be escorted off the plane for no reason!"
Cons: "We boarded, sat on the plane for a while, backed up from the gate, then sat for a while longer. 3 hours later, we had to go back to the gate because we reached the legal limit they can hold us on the plane on the tarmac. Another hour and a half or so later, we finally took off for JFK. We missed our first connecting flight and the second connecting flight I was able to rebook."

Pros: "Appreciated the extra legroom and food and drink service, even on a short flight. Crew seemed very friendly."
Cons: "It was way too cold. We shouldn't all be bundling up in scarves and jackets. I've noticed that European airlines manage nut to freeze the passengers, so three must be a way to adjust the standard temperature on planes a but more."
Pros: "It was my first time I was a little scared but not anymore it was a smooth ride. Don't change nothing keep up the good work. Thanks for letting me explore"
Pros: "Seemed to have more leg room than average. Generally fine. I got to my destination without incident, and that is the most important thing! But flying today is awful. Uncomfortable, unpleasant, stressful, etc., all so the airlines (and their CEOs) can make millions."
Cons: "Crew was "all business" -- not many smiles. They offered the usually .5 ounce of pretzels or two cookies. Passengers routinely asked "can I have both?" and the answer was routinely: no. Really? My $300+ ticket isn't worth pretzels AND two cookies? Seems silly. And, you know that have BOXES of these free snacks."
Pros: "Arrived to the airport well ahead of time and encountered lines so long that we were not able to make our flight. Only 2 attendants working and so many people had to be rebooked we didn't get another flight for 3 days. Did I mention I was traveling with a baby?"
Pros: "On time arrival"
Cons: "Everything else"
Pros: "Honestly I enjoyed every little moment. I haven't traveled to Atlanta in 9 years and let's say traveling with AA is great. Starting from the check-in up until baggage claim in atl. Everything was speedy! I'm so happy that I went with AA I had a spectacular arrival."
Pros: "Allowed us to pre-order with our daughter who needed our support."
Pros: "Full meal service, friendly and helpful crew, checkin agent went above and beyond to get us checked in even though we were late in getting to the airport."

Pros: "It did not crash"
Cons: "Delays, baggage loss, how the Airline dealt with both."
Pros: "Crew was very attentive"
Cons: "The television was in the aisle and couldn't be properly seen. Also there was no outlet charger."
Pros: "We boarded the flight pretty quickly"
Cons: "This elderly woman took long to put her baggage above so someone that was sitting a row behind my seat decided to take all of the overhead bin space, he definitely did not have a carry on size luggage and I feel that would have never happened if tsa would have noticed his carry on was too big"
Cons: "They had no record of this portion of my trip, after a few people checked they found the Chicago to Ammon part so they added me onto a flight from Washington to Chicago. All should of went well from there but they sent me to the wrong gate. Luckily I just made it to the correct gate for boarding. Upon arriving at Chicago there was no one available to provide information on how to get to Royal Jordanian gates. Also on my AA portion of my flight coming into The U S in New York the flight was cancelled and I was told the next flight Available was next day (18hr delay) at the other NY airport. I had to have someone drive from D.C. (My destination) to pick me up"
Cons: "Everything was great."
Pros: "Nothing really- we were on the tarmac for an hour for a flight that was 46 minutes!"
Cons: "An on time departure- and a better / bigger aircraft."
Pros: "We landed in NYC -- although it was first announced as Dulles."
Cons: "This flight was on Canadian Air under the auspices of United. I was not allowed into the United Club lounge despite the fact that I had business class ticket. I was informed that a business class ticket isn't sufficient for using the lounge when flying domestic. It is only good when flying international. They call that customer service. I generally avoid domestic airlines because of the customer service. The flight attendants were not happy to serve you. It's a small flight but they didn't even offer a snack -- you had to ask for it. And then they brought over a small basket with nuts, chips, candy bars, and a muffin. I took a muffin and it stuck to the roof of my mouth -- very poor quality. When I asked for a snack the flight attendant replied cocktail or soft drink never saying whether or not a snack was available.. She said this a couple of times before I could repeat that I wanted a snack to which she replied you want something to drink with that. I've been on many short flights in Asia and they will deliver a full meal and you don't have to ask for it. There was no entertainment but United did send an email explaining how I could purchase entertainment to play on my own device."
Cons: "Old plane----moldy and smelly."
Pros: "On time departure and arrival"
Cons: "We were stuck on runway for almost an hour. Plane was uncomfortably warm. Josh"
Pros: "Air Canada seats were much more comfortable than the United flight seats."
Cons: "I had to leave the terminal and pass through security again. United did not let me reserve my seat on Air Canada. They did not even tell me where my connecting flight could be found."
Cons: "I prefer an entertainment console and monitor in the seat in front of me."
Cons: "Extremely noisy inside the smaller jets. Can't hear anyone or anything."
Cons: "Many delays. Uncomfortable seats. No outlets on that particular plane."
Pros: "Despite delay, flight arrived at gate on time."
Cons: "Insufficient meals available for the passengers. Flight time was moved back twice and then up. It can really cause problems for people when departure times are moved up. In flight programs were good but no headphones provided. Good thing we brought some!"
Pros: "We had a four hour delay. Absolutely no reason given. Even the the guys at the counter admitted they didn't know why the plane was delayed. And best yet, neither did the pilot. Customer service was great at the airport. But the airline itself was pathetic."
Cons: "We had a four hour delay. Absolutely no reason given. Even the the guys at the counter admitted they didn't know why the plane was delayed. And best yet, neither did the pilot. Customer service was great at the airport. But the airline itself was pathetic."
Pros: "Nothing. Flight was cancelled."
Cons: "Flight cancelled, Went to customer service at Dulles, 2 people working, 5 standing around chatting. After 30 minutes, with the line not moving decided to leave and take Amtrak. Then, United sent me back to customer service to get a release to get me checked bag, I gave up and took a cab to Union Station. Through it all, United's customer service was horrible. I thought American was bad, but United beats them for worst customer service."
Cons: "Gate crew was rude and I'm helping boarding process was terrible unorganized chaotic snacks were terrible only soda for drinks seats were terrible hard cramped no leg room very poor conditions no entertainment onboard systems did not work crew on board complaining about United Airlines"
Cons: "Late departure."
Cons: "Besides taking off late, the worst part was the new seats are the smallest ever. I could not sit without my knees jammed into the seat in front of me, and on both legs, Ithe seats were narrow that the people next to me and I were overlapping shoulders - that was a first. Unless its flights in the future are significantly advantageous, United's losing my business. It's not worth saving a few bucks to me to be so uncomfortable."
Pros: "Ground and flight crew were all pleasant and professional"
Cons: "This flight is always fully booked - book your seat early if you can."
Cons: "Some inspector idiot decided that the exterior cover stickers weren't "up to code" literally half an hour before my flight, delaying us 2 hours. I got onto a different flight at the last second, then the same thing happened to that plane. Brilliant on their parts. I almost lost a job interview thanks to your people."
Pros: "Much more comfortable."

Pros: "Flight departed and arrived on time. Flight attendants were courteous. Boarding was quick."

Pros: "I loved how quickly we departed and arrived at each destination!"
Cons: "The boarding process was terrible. People forgetting to even stand in line for their boarding groups getting to cut ahead of those whose group is currently in the process of boarding. That should not be allowed. It's rude and disrespectful to other passengers/customers."
Cons: "Maintenance delays and rerouting caused me to miss my reserved ground transit in LA... United claimed on the phone I would be reimbursed for a taxi, but changed their mind when I sent them a receipt a few days later."
Pros: "same comments as above"
Cons: "same comments as above"
Cons: "Tight aisle"
Cons: "Wobbly takeoff from Denver, then an aborted landing at LGA, I won't be flying United again anytime soon."
Pros: "I love United. They're now my go to airline. I love the pet friendliness as well as every employee through United I met today from the bdl check in crew , to especially the flight crew on flight558 iAd to phx who I believe was from Houston and their Texas roots truly shined. Every crew member was Sooo attentive professional Cleanly pleasant and always smiling and happy to come around. Other crews could learn from this crew please take notice !!! I have never been so impressed (and I am a frequent flyer )"
Cons: "Flight tracker wouldn't work on screen or on phone disappointing"
Pros: "Quick boarding process"
Cons: "Not enough leg room and I'm not even a tall person"
Pros: "Blanket for lap"
Cons: "No service /selections. Paid for movie and fat child continually shut off TV w his fat arm on my armrest Boarding is very poor no assists as flight attendants virtually unattentive LAX dirty disgusting and no shops seating or restaurants No mvmt to allow stiff swollen legs all cramped in tiny seats. I pay bag fees while others get free checked bags at the gates. Many people are able to carry huge extra backpacks w no enforcement from staff Slows the whole trip down"
Pros: "Due to my late connecting flight I almost missed this flight. Thankfully they waited at the gate for me and the other people who almost missed it."
Cons: "My seat wouldn't lean back at all."
Pros: "Comfy environment, not completely booked plane"
Cons: "The price for one little bottle of Rum, highway robbery I say."
Pros: "Fast, friendly, on time"
Pros: "The flight was good and everyone was very nice. Pilot made good time to decrease delay time during flight."
Cons: "Flight was delayed an hour. But that was better than the first delay estimate of an hour and a half."
Pros: "The flight was smooth for such a small jet and the attendant was so pleasant and kind. I was very pleased with the experience over all."
Cons: "It was just a personal preference. The snack was an Asian mix and it was something I didn't care for but honestly it hardly impacted the experience at all."
Cons: "A lot of turbulence but what can you do."
Cons: "Plane left earlier than scheduled so left without us, we were already checked in."
Pros: "I wrote my review above"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Maybe pick a packet food that is more favoured by more people. The wasabi peas weren't a good choice for our family"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed for six hours"
Cons: "Many hours of delays from and to.."
Pros: "Quick flight and also very nice people working. They took good care of us for our short time with them."
Cons: "I have no complaints about this flight. It went very smooth."
Cons: "My direct flight to New Orleans was canelled forcing me to arrive five hours late for my ride from the airport."
Pros: "Once we got on board the flight attendant was very nice and accommodating. The flight itself was fine."
Cons: "We had to wait 4 hours to board our flight. The plane was late, then they had to replace the whole navigation system. Then at the last minute told us to go to another gate and when we got there we were told to go back to the original gate. Getting another plane from the get go would have eliminated a lot of the hassle we all experienced."
Pros: "I got stuck in security but the United staff waited for me to board. I am grateful they went the extra mile because I chose to fly that day in order to make it to an important event."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable and good amount of leg room"
Cons: "No fault"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by traffic control in NYC. Instead of just informing passengers why the flight was delayed, they just ignored the passengers and made people queue"
Pros: "boarding went smoothly for the most part staff was helpful"
Cons: "somehow the plane landed late (even though we took off on time) then we got stuck on the plane"
Cons: "paying for seats"
Pros: "Flight crew was amazing, they really work hard to make up for the bare bones no frills flight."
Cons: "$45 for a carry on? Seats are like folding chairs. They don't even recline. $3 for a bottle of water? on a 4 hour flight, no snacks, beverages and a barely padded metal chair that doesnt even recline? For a short hop it would be ok. For a trip cross country. NO WAY!"
Cons: "Outgoing flight was delayed by 18 hours. Cancelled my inbound flight and purchased a last minute flight with another airline and still haven't received a refund."
Cons: "It was late, uncomfortable, and the ticket counter refused to help. Never again."
Pros: "You pay for what you get for No delays Nice flight attendants I would flight again"
Cons: "- No complementary snacks - No move or entertainment"
Pros: "I like everything about this airline..take off was on time...even landing was before schedule time.."
Cons: "i liked everything....I didn't had no problems...."
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that this airline is suppose to be the affordable airline and I actually spent more on this flight than my Delta flight and I got less out of it. There was no wifi available, if I wanted a drink or snack I had to pay for it and the seats weren't as comfortable as well as no power outlets available. I also had to pay for my carry on. I will no longer fly frontier. I do have to say the staff we very kind and professional."
Pros: "Leg room was decent"
Cons: "Had to pay for y carry on and I wasn't sure why. Hospitally wasn't very good"
Pros: "Bags made it home"
Cons: "Delayed waiting for Captain; delayed for revised flight plan; still flew into bumpy air. No sick bags in seatbacks."
Pros: "There was nothing I liked."
Cons: "The seats were very uncomfortable, there was no entertainment, you have to pay $40 for carry on luggage. The flight got delayed 3 hours, the staff was rude to the passengers. We had to take a detour to Philadelphia instead of NY to refuel, which took an extra hour and a half. They gave us no snacks/vouchers in the mean time. We ended up arriving at 10pm instead of the original arrival time of 4pm."
Cons: "Had too wait over an hour to board. Too many baggage fees."
Cons: "I didnt like the fact that the flight was delayed and a notification wasn't sent to my phone. I had checked the status that night when I checked in and early in the morning and the system said that the flight was on time. It wasnt until I reached the airport and the lady behind the baggage counter told me that the flight was delayed for two hours. I went to go eat with my daughter at the Chilis restaraunt. I figired since the flight was delayed why not have some lunch and head to the plane an hour before take off time. I left the restarant and went through screening. One of the TSA memebers asked me why was I going in so early when the flight was on delayed. I let them know that the flight was suppose to be taken off in an hour so they let me through. As I'm walking through the terminla they have someone walking bu asking if anyone was getting on the frontier flight. I told them that I was on that flight and they told me I needed to hurry up because the plane was about to leave. I became nervous ans started running down the gate to make it to the plane. I'm running with a two year old so Im pretty sure that you can only imagine how difficult that was. Once I reached the gate I was out of breath and it was suppose to be eight minutes before we took off. However we sat on the plane for about another thirty minutes before we left. I feel as though the communication with the airline is not there 100% and if you are sitting in an airport you should be able to hear the update especially when they are not planned ir taking place at a time that is different from what was already relayed."
Pros: "flight was only delayed because of weather. captain was good to explain and we didn't lose any time in transit."
Cons: "there is no organization, zoning was called two at a time vs. one at a time to allow for ease of lining up."
Cons: "Its only airline that i travelled with till now that doesnt offer beverages.......i asked for little hot water for baby bottle even that was given reluctantly.... Pretty disappointing"
Pros: "Nothing, never got the chance to board the flight."
Cons: "There was no indication received that Frontier required a check in of 45 minutes ahead of the flight time. And even though I was 2 minutes shy of that time, Frontier crew still did not allow me to check in. RIDICULOUS!!! No other airline has this bogus requirement. In addition, Frontier doesn't give an option for rebooking for another day, which may require an additional fee (as other airlines do). The only remedy for missing a flight is moving to Frontier's next scheduled flight (that is, the next day for a trip from Atlanta because Frontier only has one flight leaving Atlanta per day). Of course, this didn't work for me because I needed to be in New York on the day of my scheduled flight. $200 DOLLARS GONE!! In conclusion, I will never book another trip with Frontier. Also, I will never use another source to acquire a ticket because that source may not provide me with certain requirements for the airlines it sells for."
Cons: "I booked because of the cheap rate. Only to find out at the airport that they charge 25 for carry on luggage...I knew they charged for checking luggage but for a carry on?! ridiculous. Adding those $50, price is the same or more expensive than other better airlines. There was no food whatsoever. Almost 4 hr flight and no food....the food they sell is basically snacks...not even a sandwich. The seats are insanely thin and hard. Entertainment? You have to pay for that. Never seen this kind of horrible service. I lost my flight coming back from NY because of the bad weather conditions. The airport was insane, we got off in the middle of the freeway because cars were not moving and started running. I left 3hs30 before my flight and still lost it...thats how crazy it was. Not only they didnt offer any help, they wanted to charge penalty and put me on a flight 4 days from then. Tried calling and explaining, no one cares. Never flying this company again"
Cons: "A family of 4 with 2 small children sat behind my colleague and I on a 6:30am flight from ATL to LGA. There were 2 small children who disrupted my entire flight. Constant banging on the back of our chairs, slapping the trays up and down for 2 hours, slapping the plane windows, etc. After repeated efforts to ask the parents to have their children stop, the parents could care less about the disruptive behavior of their children. Complaints were made to the crew to no avail. The children were disrupting the entire 5 rows around them. These passengers should have paid for my and my colleagues flight, in addition to their flight, as they cause one of the worst experiences on a flight I've ever had. After this flight, I believe there should be a policy that if you have children on a plane, you should be required to pay more, allowing the people around you to pay less or opt out of having to be seated next to a passenger with a child."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 5 hours. Seats are uncomfortable. Hidden fees make flight as expensive or more expensive than other airlines."
Pros: "I liked one stewardess who was very helpul unfortunately didn't get her name. Thin, tall, blonde hair. She was very attentive."
Cons: "The gate changed and it was 15 minutes to supposed departure time and no one announced it or signage. Flight was to leave at 1:20, we weren't updated of a delay. They got us inside the plane at 1:45 and flight didn't leave till 3p!! The seats were squished and no one would give us any info. Close to departure the pilot said there was a maintenance issue. The other 2 female stewardesses were bitches. An asian one with short hair and a chubby blonde one in about her 60s."
Pros: "Customer service was great. The flight was smooth."
Cons: "Ignorant passengers."
Cons: "That the airline charges more for carry on and for coffee. The flight attendants were also rude."
Pros: "The flight attendants were great"
Cons: "The ticket agents,in Atlanta, were horrible"
Pros: "The seats"
Cons: "Hidden fees for carry on and flight crew was unable to even fill my water bottle. American airlines were able to do so even if it was not filled up all the way."
Pros: "It was recovered and shipped to my hotel with refunds but was required for work purposes"
Pros: "Both flights arrived early. The seat was comfortable enough"
Cons: "It should have been made clear at time of purchase that carryon baggage is so expensive. Also, I did not like to pay extra to reserve a seat, but it seemed that I could not complete the advance checkin otherwise."
Pros: "I had an enjoyable experience with Frontier. Staff and Crew were amazing. The only minor gliche is the seats or maybe just my seat didnt recline. Other than that I enjoyed my flight to NY. Im sure ill enjoy the flight back to Atl as well...hopefully!"
Pros: "I was not aware of paying for the seats. I bought the tickets on kayak.com, but I can't remember seeing anything about paying for seats and carry on. The staff was great and funny at times. I thing airlines need to put all charges up front that includes kayak.com"
Cons: "I did not like the counter person messing up my baggage fee 4 times and then the flight attendant spilling my drink all over me."
Pros: "NOTHING ABOUT THIS FIRST EXPERIENCE AND MAY SERIOUSLY NOT FLY FRONTIER AGAIN."
Cons: "TOO PRICEY FOR A 1ST CHECKED BAG. REQUESTD/PREFRRED WINDOW OR AISLE SEAT AND WAS DENIED WHEN THEY WERE EMPTY SEATS ON MY FLIGHT AND AFTER BEING TOLD IT WAS A FULL FLIGHT - THIS WAS A LIE. STA IN A MIDDLE SEAT WHERE ON MY RIGHT AND LFT SIDES WERE TWO HEAVY SEAT PASSENGERS WHER ONE OBVIOUSLY SHOULD HAV BOOKED 2 SEATS. I HAD TO SIT UNCOMFORTABLE THE ENTIRE TRIP - NOT GOOD. MY REQUEST TO MOVE WAS NEVER ANSWERED AND IGNORED. AND, FLIGHT WAS DELAYED DUE TO AN EQUIPMENT ISSUES CAUSING ME TO BE LATE TO A MAJOR EVENT. CHECK IN PROCESS WAS HORRIBLE, LONG AND OTALLY DISORGANIZED. I WILL THINK HARD BEFORE I FLY FRONTIER AGAIN."
Cons: "The flight was a rip-off. I was charged for seating and carry-on luggage which were not on the advertised price."
Pros: "There was nothing about the flight or airline or experience that was good"
Cons: "The plane is beyond terrible axles in like sardines very uncomfortable seating u basically Jane to pay extra to breath no complimentary snacks seats are like sitting on a metal plank people were very strange would never fly this airline again!!!!"
Cons: "First off, they charge you $40 for carry on luggage, CARRY-ON! It's actually cheaper (and ridiculous) to check in your luggage, which makes no sense since it requires employees to do that when it would take no money for them to have me lift my bag over my head to put it in the overhead compartment. The seats are terrible and you even have to pay for water on the plane. I'm surprised they didn't charge me to use their bathroom. It's basically a flying tin can managed by a company that likes to scam people into thinking they're getting a great deal for a flight when they'll have to pay for every extra that all other flights are a slightly higher price provide for free. I will NEVER fly with Frontier. You should read up on their horror stories - they've refused flights to children traveling alone. I hope they go bankrupt."
Pros: "Great efficient service, safe flight in timly matter"
Cons: "All was good"
Pros: "The crew was entertaining"
Cons: "The seats are tiny & they charge for carry on luggage."
Cons: "After booking through kayak, Frontier never contacted me. The reason why:$45 fee for carry on! Each way! Per person! At $198 round trip that's about 45 % surprise increase. If you fight they threaten you with $60 at the gate and I saw someone had to pay it. Also, delays of an hour both ways. NEVER flying Fronteir again. Never booking through Kayak as they shouldn't be helping these crooks hide their surprise highway robbery."
Pros: "I missed my flight"
Cons: "I missed my flight"
Cons: "no food or entertainment were provided as part of fee"
Pros: "Departure was on time. Arrival was on time. Smooth flight. Inexpensive."
Cons: "Food and snacks were additional. No entertainment. Check-in for luggage was not included."
Pros: "Speed of service and def love the price ☺️"
Cons: "No food, no entertainment..."
Cons: "They lost my bag - first time flying Frontier. Bad first impression to say the least."
Pros: "The crew was very attentive."
Cons: "The flight was 2 hours delayed."
Cons: "$40 for a carry on bag is outrageous. Will never fly frontier again"
Pros: "more leg room. crew was nice, polite and organized"
Cons: "don't even get nuts or cookies. Just water."
Pros: "Flight was late, seats were terrible, food service minimal, but price was FANTASTIC. Overall -- just fine."
Pros: "Crew on board was friendly enough."
Cons: "Thin aluminum seats covered with thin vinyl padding. Get ready for a stiff back and a sweaty butt. New and improved seat tray table - shrunk down to the size of an iPad mini... Great. Tea is no longer free. A checked bag fee applies (fine). But a carry on bag fee?? Even better - the carry on bag fee is MORE than the checked fee. Hilarious. This is the first airline that did not do me the courtesy of an upgrade to emergency exit row at the gate (I'm 6'5). How much for that extra legroom? $80. On a $150 flight. Awesome. Some frontiers are worth exploring. This one holds nothing but shock and dismay. AVOID AT ALL COSTS."
