Pros: "all"

Pros: "Plenty of room between seats (seating in the emergency row), on time, friendly crew and very good entertainment options. But you need to bring your own device, make sure to download the app before boarding."

Pros: "The crew was very friendly."

Cons: "By the time I boarded I was unable to take my bag on as all overhead compartment space was gone. My bag was not prioritized, instead I had to wait FOREVER at SFO for the bag to arrive. There were over 6 flights assigned to the same baggage carousel. I think since we have to pay now for bags to be checked, I should have been compensated for NOT being able to take my bag onboard and for being forced to wait a very long time to retrieve it...exactly what I had hoped to avoid by carrying on."

Pros: "The people I sat with made for great company."
Cons: "Flight was changed, so my premium seat was canceled. Luggage was delayed significantly. No technology availability."

Pros: "not crowded"
Cons: "almost 3 hrs late"

Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Not prompt takeoff or system for getting people on-board. The gogoinflight is also a mess and didn't work for this leg of my trip."

Pros: "The airplanes were nice, clean and comfortable,"
Cons: "The food was nasty! The choices were aweful, the crew didn't look profesional!! They look like they were going to sport event."

Pros: "Leg room was better than expected"
Cons: "Having to wait on tarmac when I arrived and then having to be bused to the airport. I arrived on time but spent 30 minutes to get to baggage."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Bumpy ride"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I felt like cattle flying on flight 308 sea-sf. Obese intoxicated guy taking up 1/2 my middle seat that I paid $200 for. Pilot said we were 16 on take off line. I think he is being sarcastic - I hope he is. Not a pleasant experience at all. 34 min late & no wifi. 30 min to get to gate. BS"

Pros: "Boarding process fast and easy, crew friendly."
Cons: "Cabin temperature was WAY too warm and stuffy, and no entertainment options, which is disappointing when having a lap infant."

Cons: "Delayed both ways"

Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Was moved to a premium seat, but since it was an international flight and i didnt have cell service so I didnt get a notification until i was at the gate. I was relocated from the rest of my party and wasnt able to communicate with them, so they were worried there was an issue with my ticket and that i wasnt on the plane."

Pros: "For such a short flight, it was an amazing trip to SFO. Friendly crew and service was top notch."

Pros: "Staff is always helpful and pleasant - text messages about flight changes/departures/gate changes, etc - always updated! And love the usb for charging phone."

Cons: "Diversion to San Jose without shuttles to downtown SFO."

Cons: "Horrible. Just plain ugly. I miss virgin. Literally a big F U for my experience. Thanks for ruining my life you A holes."

Pros: "That they boarded the people in the back of the plane first."
Cons: "The slowness of the boarding process. It seemed to take forever. There was only one attendant manning the announcements and checking the boarding passes."

Cons: "We boarded, then were told to exit after sitting for close to 40 minutes on the jetway with NO AC. It was close to 2 hours until a flight could take us to SFO. It ruined my plans and I will be requesting a full refund from Alaska."

Pros: "nice free cookies"
Cons: "late departure, late arrival, and then we sat motionless on the tarmac for 20 minutes for our gate to be ready"

Pros: "The coffee"
Cons: "It was delayed almost 2 hours"

Pros: "All Alaska planes have been new and good leg room and comfortable."
Cons: "We flew in to San Francisco from Cabo Mexico but our luggage did not go straight through as we were entering the US. We had to wait for our luggage and run to the security check point which took a good 45 min to get through. We barely made our connecting flight. Need more than an hour and twenty min for connecting flights. We should have had a min of two hours to get through customs, collect our luggage and then walk to the terminal and go through security and then walk to our gait."

Pros: "Relaxing environment"
Cons: "Occasional wafts of restroom smell"

Pros: "Prompt. Very friendly"

Pros: "clean modern airplane, polite air crew, easy to plug-in and charge tablet while in use during flight."
Cons: "food was overpriced meh."

Pros: "The flight crew did a great job."
Cons: "a bit crowded but that's the norm it seems."

Cons: "Plane was delayed taking off because they waited for connecting passengers. Plane was delayed deplaning because a ground crew was not ready. I missed my BART connection and had to pay $50.00 for an Uber. Extremely displeased."

Pros: "I like the option to watch movies on my phone"

Pros: "very comfortable seats."

Pros: "Most everything. Didn't purchase food. No entertainment."

Cons: "Couldn't get wifi to work but no big deal"

Pros: "Crew was the best-helpful and sincere and efficient"

Pros: "I used the call button for the first time because I had ignored the drink service and desperately needed coffee. The flight attendant came back with a smile and got me some of the best coffee I could've asked for."

Pros: "The crew and staff were very friendly and the flight was smooth except for some turbulence which cannot be controlled. The Embraer 175 was a very comfortable aircraft."
Cons: "The boarding process was different than other airlines. After the special needs passengers and 1st class boarded they just opened it up to everyone else and it create a bit of a mad dash. That could have been controlled a bit better but otherwise it was a great flight."

Pros: "See above."
Cons: "Survey should have a "not applicable" category. I did not have food or entertainment so can't rate my experience on those areas."

Pros: "We boarded fast and left and arrived on time"

Pros: "Seat pitch reasonable"
Cons: "Return flight was 1.5 hours late."

Pros: "Free wine"

Pros: "No delay, nice n comfortable"

Cons: "Domestic flight left out of international terminal made getting to the right gate confusing"

Pros: "Brian of the brand new air plane's staff was very friendly and attentive. The plane had that great "new plane" smell ... mmm! :)"
Cons: "Well, it's always difficult when one has to change terminals and the plane is delayed. It's even harder for those of us with mobility issues. I use a knee scooter and I was in a lot of pain by the time we finally boarded. The crew seemed just a bit confused as to what was going to happen to my scooter, although it worked out just fine. I couldn't get the in-flight wifi to work either of my two devices, nor could my seat mate. :( We were served food very late in the fight -- I had about 15 minutes to eat before the seat tray had to be put up. But worst, my flight home has been cancelled and rescheduled for a much later flight. As mobility device user, I'm limited on who can pick me up and when. This means an over two hour wait for my pick up person, which is very hard on a one-legged person. I asked Alaska if they would be willing to waive the fee for a different flight when I can get a prompt pick up person with room for my mobility device. They said they would not. I'm a little surprised, as Alaska claims to be ADA and military friendly. I'm not sure I'll fly Alaska again."

Pros: "Another well run Alaska flight. Even the coffee was decent. Very clean , new plane. We got in early."
Cons: "Like all flights nowadays, no enough space in the overhead bins for those of us who board later."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothung"

Pros: "Not only were we on time, we were early!"

Pros: "Everything was great, smooth landing and take off."
Cons: "As usual, the seats are small, don't recline much. Paying for wifi on a flight is antiquated. First class and coach separation is antiquated."

Pros: "Friendly service."
Cons: "Had to wait 20 minutes on Tarmac because another plane was parked at the gate we needed to use."

Pros: "Ease of boarding; device plugin at my seat."
Cons: "The stupid bags fees! C'mon there is absolutely NO reason to charge $25 per bag. That's just a con job to squeeze more money out of us."

Pros: "Rescheduled flight was on time"
Cons: "My original return flight was rescheduled due to air traffic control and the return city was changed. This was fine but the email sent to me never told me to re check in. When I arrived at the airport one hour before the flight, my seat had been given away because I wasn't yet checked in... therefore, I had to be rebooked the following day without any compensation for hotel... not the best way to handle this situation."

Pros: "Felt safe withe the cleanest of the plane"
Cons: "Price"

Pros: "The crew did a great job and I enjoyed the movies."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "great everything!"

Pros: "Comfortable plane due to few passengers"
Cons: "7 hour delay after flight postponed."

Pros: "Standard boarding The plane was on time"
Cons: "Better boarding process.Such as the one used by Southwest"

Pros: "The staff handled the situation very well."
Cons: "The delays put me arriving at 4am. Missed a half day of work, and was practically useless the last half of the day. I understand things go wrong, but they blamed the weather and the other airlines were getting planes in and out just fine. Even Frontier Airlines at least offers a meal voucher for del"

Pros: "Atlanta airport was busy and we circled for 30+ minutes, which nearly caused us to miss a connecting flight (customs and all). The Delta pilot was good at communicating with the passengers though."

Pros: "Crew did a great job. Pilot was very informative. Great job working with what they have."
Cons: "My feet were absolutely freezing. I sat 4D (and paid for first class tickets but somehow delta didn’t even give me comfort plus for this flight). Plane is tiny. I’m 6’2” 205 lbs and I barely fit in the seat. This is a regional flight (even though it’s 2 hrs) so service is very minimal."

Cons: "Better seats"

Pros: "The crew very nice and helpful"

Pros: "The flight was smooth and the crew was very professional"
Cons: "Have wifi available"

Cons: "No video screens and wi-fi was too slow to use"

Pros: "Cincinnati airport was clean and efficient"
Cons: "MCO airport gate was a mess and did not have easy access to charge phones."

Pros: "Flight itself was fine"
Cons: "My flight to Atlanta was delayed which caused me to miss my flight to Seattle. The next earliest flight was booked so had to catch another flight several hours later. No one from Delta offered any sort of compensation."

Pros: "I was surprised by the amount of snacks and drinks on such a short flight."

Pros: "Everyone was very courteous, the plane took off on schedule and arrived at our destination early. Also got a complimentary upgrade to Comfort Plus."
Cons: "Ticket price was a bit much, the seats and aisle inside the plane are only made for skinny people. Aisle was barely longer across than my foot, and the guy next to me was a bit bigger than average, leaving me to have to scrunch in my seat the whole flight. Lots of elbows, butts and hips knocking into my shoulders as people boarded."

Pros: "Not on time"
Cons: "2 hour delay"

Cons: "Flight was delayed with no explanation, The crew sprayed me twice with the fizz from opening soda cans with no apology."

Pros: "I can’t make it in mexico city on tuesday, wednesday’s performance had to be cancelled and we need to pay the cancellation fee 11500 mexican pesos of the studio and musicians"
Cons: "I can’t make it in mexico city on tuesday, wednesday’s performance had to be cancelled and we need to pay the cancellation fee 11500 mexican pesos of the studio and musicians"

Cons: "I began asking for my wheelchair escort the minute I got off the plane. I was assured in Houston they would be there when I got to Detroit. They were not. The request was clearly spelled out on my boarding pass along with my personal oxygen equipment information. I kept asking different staff and they would call for me then say somebody would be there. I waited for an entire hour and only when I started to cry did somebody do something. It was terribly stressful."

Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Plane smelled strongly of urine whenxwe boarded and for the next 6.5 hours."

Pros: "Jamaica security and boarding, despite a crowded airport and gate, was very quick. Appeared chaotic but was friendly and efficient. Boarding was orderly and efficient. Flight was smooth, seats luxurious (comfort+ aisle and window seats with an empty center!). Arrival into ATL half an hour early."
Cons: "Only one offer of beverage on 3 hr. flight. "Food" at dinner time was chips or crackers. Arriving 1/2 hour early we sat on tarmac for 50 minutes before reaching gate. 20+ minute walk to customs, 30 minute line."

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Got in over an hour late. 140am"

Pros: "Delta personnel were very pleasant/friendly"

Pros: "Nice crew, comfortable"

Pros: "Direct flight"

Pros: "Flight went well and was smooth."

Pros: "see aqbove"
Cons: "see above"

Cons: "Seats are too small in both width and knee room"

Pros: "Staff was awesome."
Cons: "The plane was an older plane and just not as comfortable."

Pros: "I really enjoyed the movie selection on my personal entertainment screen. The movies were New releases and there was a good selection. Staff was also very friendly and attentive."
Cons: "The cookies on the return flight with Delta were nice, but the mini meal on the flight down with Aeromexico was even better!"

Pros: "From friendly staff on the ground to check us in, to helpful flight attendants, Delta has once again convinced us it is one of the better airlines . Will fly delta again."

Cons: "It was a smooth ride and overall very enjoyable flight as the entertainment was very enjoyable and a lot to choose from"

Pros: "Great service and amenities for a low cost"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Boarding was easy. Wifi was available and we got some snacks. Paid extra to sit in roomier coach, was worth it."
Cons: "Still pretty cramped, not the crews fault. Would've been better with the seat back screens"

Pros: "Pilot got us back safe through some bad turbulence, the flight was shaky from start to finish. They gave extra snacks, were attentive to any needs. Would definitely trust Delta pilots again. Also with this being a connecting flight, it was nice that the group of five I was in was given an entire row to ourselves."

Pros: "The food, comfort and service of Delta One class have continued to excel. Since this was a scheduled late departure and they still offered the full menu, I chose to have only the appetizer portion. This turned out to be a fine soup, salmon salad and multiple extras. This was perfect for an 11:00 PM dinner."

Pros: "I needed to change my flight because my international flight from Buenos Aires was delayed due to a national work stoppage and I would miss my scheduled Delta flight from JFK to SAV. The cost difference to take a flight later the same day was exorbitant (over a $500 additional cost to the price of the original ticket) so we elected to fly back to SAV two days later. I do not understand how airlines can get away with charging such exorbitant ticket prices--these prices should be regulated!"

Pros: "On time departure, clean plane, competent and professional flight attendants, pilot announcements were clear and relevant"
Cons: "Check in took forever. Delta reservations made some type of mistake when they cancelled our flight to CUN and I needed to rebook the flight. It took the CUN counter agent about 30 minutes to correct their mistake. Then, as we boarded our flight, the bar code reader at the gate indicated another error that the gate agent took about 10 minutes to correct. CUN Delta staff was great and we appreciated the efforts they made to direct us around the airport."

Pros: "Being interviewed as I waited in line to check my luggage. Personal touch and felt good safety screening. Bottle of water given out. The friendliness and helpfulness of the crew. I was in the back of the plane. Very cheery despite the masses of people."
Cons: "Seat size small. Although I appreciate the serving of food during the flight, felt a lot of junky carbs and sugar."

Pros: "They did give us the Dane snacks the first class passengers got."
Cons: "Zero additional leg room in this supposed comfort seat. The seat was very narrow and there was absolutely no additional leg room on the flight. I'm tall, so that's what I pay for when I book these flights and none was provided."

Pros: "Pilot has very smooth landing. Crew were nice"

Cons: "Reasonable price"

Pros: "Games and videos were good. Food was ok."
Cons: "Not enough leg room. Need at least another 2 inches."

Pros: "The ramp agents and crew were excellent and they were professional."
Cons: "Flying in first class and watching all the economy passengers dragging multiple carry ons to save a baggage fee"

Pros: "Nice people"

Pros: "The flights were on time and the entertainment system worked great."
Cons: "They overbooked (as usual) and bumped me from the Atlanta to Los Angeles leg of my journey. This put me 24 hours behind and cost me hotel money."

Pros: "Seriously, all was great. Usually is. Love Delta"

Cons: "The boarding process was a disaster. Already delayed two hours due to weather, the gate agents didn't seem to have a process to scan boarding passes and passports efficiently."

Cons: "Seat choice flexibility, but it was basic economy..."

Cons: "Lots of turbulence, but well-handled by the pilot. All lights in cabin were left on from takeoff to cruising, which made two infants cry that entire hour."

Cons: "Your seats are too small, but we know the airline industry is not gonna do anything about it."

Cons: "Seat 33A. The audio output was bad. Could not clearly hear dialog. Restarting did not help, this issue as consistent got all media programs."

Pros: "Seat room is limited, especially when you are in the middle seat."
Cons: "Seat space"

Cons: "Delayed"

Cons: "Checked baggage untimely, causing me to miss the train"

Cons: "On time"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Getting a flight"

Cons: "The crew was great, but AA needs to step it up with comfort and amenities!"

Pros: "The flight crew were very good."
Cons: "We arrived late in Dallas, due to weather. Our flight to LA had already locked the door, the lady working the desk when we got there, said we had missed the flight and walked off. Two more ladies came to the counter, but would not help us, finally a fourth lady came and helped us."

Pros: "great trip and crew"

Pros: "movies"
Cons: "the bumpiest, harrowing flight ever"

Pros: "Good flight good crew"
Cons: "Hated the connection from terminal 5 to terminal 3 we should not have to go through the departure lounge this added 10 mins or more into a very tight connection."

Pros: "Comfortable bulkhead seats tho talk husband didn't have enough room for his feet."
Cons: "No power outlets!"

Cons: "Poor they lost my luggage. They did not allowed me to take my suitcas whit me because the plan was too small. I never travel again whit amercan airlines"

Cons: "I was forced to chance airlines, because, AA knew about an issue with the plane but still tried to used it."

Cons: "4 hour mechanical delay and shitty communication"

Cons: "Cabin temperature was probably 60 degrees. Could understand if we left a 90 degree city. But not on an early morning flight with 70 degree ambient temps when we took off. I’ve been warmer in mid January flights from Chicago."

Cons: "The crew was a little late"

Cons: "While my experience was excellent, I must acknowledge that the practice of charging significantly more for some seats is outrageous. I was happy with the (free) seats I had."

Cons: "delayed. and boarding crew had no clue how to handle boarding. senile behaviour of a specific old lady"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Had to Deplane 3 hour delay. No compensation no offerings no nothing."

Pros: "The crew was excellent and most of the counter staff was good except for the one in Dallas. Actually flew on JAL partner AA"
Cons: "Delay out of Wichita and another delay out of Dallas, got into Tokyo 3 hours late. Paid $167 for upgrade to economy plus but seat assignment was in economy"

Pros: "Not much here. The seats were ok, but the rest of the flight the airline was just poor."
Cons: "The airline is so outdated and behind the times of their competitors, their in that they don't have in flight entertainment unless you download their app and give them your email address. On top of that when I originally booked my flights, I had made sure to have 1.5 hr for a layover between my connecting flights. Well, they decided to move up my connector such that I had 25 minutes to run across 2 terminals. They only give you pretzels on the plane, and a single soda drink. They offer you "food bundles" but why do I want to pay $8 for a sandwich that costs $1 to make."

Pros: "Smooth flight, got in early."
Cons: "Breakfast was average. Could do better"

Cons: "80 minute delay"

Pros: "On time. Jet rather than a turbo-prop plane. Quick flight."
Cons: "Somewhat haphazard boarding. Not even a cookie for a snack."

Cons: "No longer free entries on board like before"

Cons: "Rude crew"

Pros: "Everyone was so friendly and helpful, especially Ricardo at the check in desk. Our flight was delayed for 2 hours but the friendly staff made it easier to deal with the delay!"

Cons: "The limitation on available hardware that is compatible with the GoGo app prevented us from enjoying the available entertainment."

Pros: "Not over crowded"

Pros: "New plane, no delays"
Cons: "On way there wasted too much time.with delays"

Pros: "Entertainment and meals"
Cons: "Crew could of been friendlier"

Cons: "AA used a ground hold in ICT. Was told connection to Flint would not be a problem. When I got off of plane in Chicago the flight Flint had already pushed back. Could either wait for the next Flint flight that would get in at about midnight and risk not having a rental car or take an earlier flight to Detroit and pay $85 for dropping rental car off at Flint."

Pros: "Pretty much on time departure and arrival. Comfortable, larger aircraft than usual."
Cons: "n/s as only a 40 minute flight"

Cons: "The landing gate in Palm Springs."

Pros: "Had window seat. Seat to close tho bulkhead wall. Shoulder literally resting on the side of wall the whole flight."
Cons: "See above."

Cons: "The bag hanging down from the bottom of the seat in front of me."

Pros: "Nothing. Again, super old plane, no screens, no movies, zero effort."
Cons: "I got tricked into spending $80 for a seat with legroom. I'm 6'6" there is zero compassion and/or understanding for being a tall person. That's fine, I'll pay more. But then I was sat in a 'special' section, the only 2 seats that are narrower than a regular seat. The flight attendant said there was nothing they could do. 5 1/2 hours and I spent half the time standing up to avoid serious cramps. As a tall person I am literally getting phased out of airline seats. My knee to hip length prevents me from sitting in some seats. No one cares."

Cons: "One of the flight attendants was pretty rude and quite short with passengers."

Cons: "Seat reassignment"

Cons: "No seemed happy at all."

Pros: "Food was surprisingly good. In fight crew was great."
Cons: "Apparently you can make a reservation for a seat and AA is not required to honor it. They told us that you reserve a seat but you get your seat assignment when you check in to your flight. Apparently many people can make a reservation for one seat and the first person to check in gets it. My husband and I were very upset when we found this out. Especially since we went through many hoops to get a good seat assignment."

Cons: "The original flught flight was delayed and we had to wait in a long slow line, however , once we got to desk , the agent was very nice and we had already been rebooked on an Alaska flight. So we never ended up going to Phoenix. The resolution was acceptable but it made for a 12 hour travel day instead of a 4 hour travel day."

Pros: "The price is competitive. On boarding was ontime. Though the flight was redirected to Omaha due to bad weather in Kansas City, it was only an hour late than the scheduled arrival to Kansas City."
Cons: "The WiFi was not as expected. In flight entertainment is null. Snack would have been better."

Cons: "plane was old, media not working well in many seats (not ok for an intl flight), light not working in my seat..."

Pros: "The flight attendants and the entertainment system were excellent."
Cons: "Could offer more options than cookies and pretzels."

Pros: "Loved that we were on time and that the counter personal were polite and patient."

Pros: "The crew was responsive and very friendly."

Pros: "Friendly flight attendant"
Cons: "Long walk to gate"

Pros: "Drinks"
Cons: "Absence of entertainment"

Pros: "Not much. We did arrive alive, which is the best part of it."
Cons: "First flight of the day took off late because of a mechanical issue. Couldn't they fix it during the night?"

Pros: "Great crew, boarding process, drink service"
Cons: "No entertainment or food served on flight for free"

Cons: "Flights from SMF to ORD to IND included on board flight entertainment at no cost. Flight from IND to ORD it was included. However from ORD back to SMF there was a fee. For the amount of money paid for the flight and for someone on a tight budget, this was extremely disappointing."

Cons: "Customer service was terrible. I was told I was not their customer and they wouldn't help me. When the agents sent me away for the 2nd time, after promising to hold the door, I returned and the agent closed it in my face."

Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above"

Pros: "same as obove"
Cons: "same as above"

Cons: ""Dish Network TV" $7 for every 2 hours, if you don't pay they just repeat the add in front of you for the entire flight. So greedy. This is why Delta is so much better. Tons of movies, newer, and FREE. United Airlines is terrible."

Pros: "Smaller plane enhanced comfort"
Cons: "Did not use entertainment app"

Pros: "Close gate our connection."
Cons: "More trouble and delay on take off."

Pros: "Same as above. I miss the old days of magazines as some of us cannot pay for the Wi-Fi"
Cons: "You have very good crew people. There was a male flight Ttendant Chicago to Sac whoncalmlynand deftly handled a grouchy passenger People get testy on long uncomfortable flights. He handled this guy very well."

Cons: "Yyyy Ggggggggggffggvfggggdswfgggfffffrffgfggggfffff"

Pros: "Leg room"
Cons: "Staff in main cabin was nasty"

Cons: "Understandable they could not help about weather, but was terrible about keeping us updated."

Pros: "Crew was very nice and customer service oriented."

Cons: "Flight cancelled with no eta for replacement."

Pros: "The flight was fine. No issues at all"
Cons: "My experience would be fine except when I went through security and they checked my luggage, they opened my suitcase in front of everyone and riffled through my clothes out in the open. I don't care that they needed to go through my bag, I care that there was no concern for privacy."

Pros: "Houston flight was really fast!! Can't complain at all"

Pros: "Everyone was great helped me make my flight on time and great service."

Pros: "It was excellent"
Cons: "Every thing"

Cons: "They cancelled the flight and we took a small bus instead. It took over 2 hours after the flight was cancelled for us to be on a bus to make the 90 min drive to Sacramento. Horrible, I wish I would have paid for a bus ticket instead of paying for a flight."

Pros: "Being on time no delays"
Cons: "A mm issue with the seating between travelers the flight attendants fid not check the right seats and these cause the whole argument happily one of the travelers decided to stop and just seat where did not belong or better said purchased ... people around where not happy to se this either but as educated people where just listening the whole argument going....."

Pros: "a gd fl"
Cons: "the flight attendant act like jail commanders."

Cons: "My family member and I were separated and both stuck with a middle seat--no option to pick your own seat; unable to precheck online."

Pros: "I liked how new and clean the plane was, and how orderly all aspects of the flight were."
Cons: "It has always seem really counterproductive to load the front of the plane first. All five of us said the same thing. Really dumb, so what....... if we were to have paid more money for first class. It would be faster. No need to wait for someone to get their bag in the overhead for so long."

Pros: "Nice and smooth. There was an issue with the plane but they transitioned us quickly and I was impressed that we were hardly delayed."
Cons: "None"

Cons: "6 hour delay with no explanation or communication."

Pros: "The attendant was very nice, professional and friendly. My flight was only an hour."

Pros: "Seating was very nice in Delta select, lots of leg room!!!"
Cons: "There were 3 flight attendants on this flight and two of the three were great. One however was the rudest woman I've ever met. Her favorite word was "no" and she talked down to everyone, including her fellow flight attendants. I really wish I had gotten her name but when I asked her, her response was, "why?" I was so fed yo with her I just said forget it and avoided her. I understand people have bad days but I have a feeling this was more of a personality issue. She acted better than everyone else. It really only takes one person to ruin the whole flight"

Cons: "Delays delays delays"

Cons: "Too warm in flight. Did not run Ac enough."

Pros: "The cookies and drunk selection"
Cons: "No entertainment not comfortable"

Cons: "cold cabin temp for first hour or so of the flight. Crew knocked on bathroom door while I was engaged - I responded loudly that I was in there but they proceeded to bang again and burst in Julie the attendant cited the danger of turbulence but frankly there was almost none at this time. Rude and inconsiderate. Not listening for a response! Entertainment via mobile device doe not work with windows phones."

Cons: "Arrived SIX hours late, did have luggage which was nice."

Cons: "On April 15 we flew from Sacramento to Basel, via Los Angeles and Munich. We did exactly what we were told re reserving seats. We were told to call 23 hrs. in advance to reserve seats. When we tried to follow directions, we were not able to check in. Without checking in, we could not reserve seats. After numerous phone calls, to various numbers, we were not able to check in or reserve seats. By continuing to ask questions, to try and understand, we were told we were "under airport control". This was an "at random" situation and online check in was not available. Only 5 minutes earlier, we were still being instructed to check in online! We had never heard of this. I contacted a neighbor, who flies often internationally and within the U.S. He said it had happened to him once. He agreed that driving to the airport in Sacramento was a wise decision. This is not what we wanted to be doing 1 day before departure. At Sacramento we found a kind gentleman who saw our dilemma and checked us in as a favor. We saw assigned seats. He suggested we request to improve our seats the following travel day. It was a very challenging morning. As I tried to improve our seating the following day I was told, by airport staff, that this happened because we booked through Kayak? Rather with an attitude that we should have booked differently. This was a vacation we had looked forward to for years. I worked hard at not letting this difficult start damage my trip. Upon arrival in Amsterdam, I tried to learn more, to prevent a similar situation on the way home."

Pros: "As above"
Cons: "As above"

Pros: "Everyone at the Wichita airport were very friendly - especially the TSA personnel. Everything moved quickly and efficiently. Plus the airport itself is so beautiful and easy to get around in. Took us less than 30 minutes from parking in shuttle parking lot to going through security to getting to our gate!"

Cons: "I had round trip from Sacramento to Cancun, the staffs service was poor, there are even no greeting and smiling when I every time checked in. That is really bad experience with united airline"

Pros: "Enjoyed it"

Pros: "Was a very good service; thanks to all"

Pros: "The flight was short and on time."
Cons: "Patronizing flight attendant"

Cons: "There wasn't a built in audio/video system. You needed to stream movies on your tablet or phone over United wi-fi system. The system was overloaded. The movie would stop frequently while buffering. It was extremely irritating."

Pros: "ease of ordering by phone"

Pros: "Flight attendants didn't fret too much over passengers swapping seats to be close to traveling companions, though it did cause a delay in take-off, along with an equipment malfunction."
Cons: "On previous flights, attendants would strictly monitor the one personal item and one carry on rule. It didn't happen this time causing several people to have to check bags."

Cons: "not clean"

Pros: "The pilot and crew. They were very nice."
Cons: "No complements you buy everything. Long layovers."

Pros: "A little cheaper."
Cons: "Frontier was a little cheaper than the competitors, so we decided to go with them. You get what you pay for! Pay the extra 20-30 dollars and go with someone else. The sets were paper thin, the food was so expensive for the smallest little snacks I've EVER seen, the flight attendants are snarky, and you have to pay for a carry on. So not worth it. Just fly American."

Cons: "Arrival seemed uncoordinated and didn't have a dedicated terminal gate."

Pros: "Flight arrived ahead of schedule, cordial crew, discounted fares"
Cons: "You have to pay for everything extra...luggage, seat, food"

Pros: "Great pilot. Smooth take off and landing. Great crew. Professional and friendly."
Cons: "Everything costs. From carry on bags, to a bag of snack peanuts. Very disappointing. (I would rather pay more on the ticket than to get nickled and dimed for everything)."

Pros: "flight was on time"
Cons: "the most uncomfortable flight I've ever been on. No in-flight entertainment, no free non-alcoholic drinks, no magazines in back seat pocket, seats felt carved from concrete"

Cons: "no drink, just a free cup of water for 5 hrs flight delayed 6 hrs just for one family that needs special medical care seat can not adjust, not comfortable"

Cons: "Did not like the fact that I paid for my fair, my luggage, my carry on, and then my seats. Only to find out the seats were hard they didn't recline and I had to pay to have a drink or snack on a 5 hour flight. After all the money you made me pay, you would think I'd get something to eat and drink for free"

Pros: "Nice crew"

Cons: "Having to pay $4.99 for a soda."

Cons: "The non-reclining seats"

Cons: "My flight from LAX-DEN was delayed. Ended up missing my flight, as well as my flight from DEN-CIN. We as passengers were not told where to go (we waited two hours to hear any kind of news). We were told that the Frontier staff would know what was going on at the DEN airport once we arrived, but they did not. We then waited another hour to be told where to go. I was given a voucher for my hotel, food and transportation. However, my transportation voucher did not work. I waited over an hour for a bus that never came. My transportation in the AM back to the airport was not covered either. I ended up paying money out of pocket both times when it should've been free of charge. The staff on the airplanes were OK, although at times unprofessional."

Cons: "I hated every aspect of that flight."

Cons: "cost"

Pros: "Quick boarding and unloading. Funny crew"
Cons: "Only brought drinks once, needed water. Very loud on intercom. Flight was delayed"

Pros: "Absolutely nothing. Had to pay an extra 90 for. Carry on. Seats suck and do t recline. Never again!!!!!!"

Pros: "Fairly clean aircrafts Friendly crew"
Cons: "Seats do not recline There is not even one complementary drink"

Pros: "I like the staff and non stop flight"
Cons: "The delays and comfort"

Pros: "Stewardesses. Smoothness of the ride. New aircraft."
Cons: "Seat spacing too close. Poor padding on seats. They did not recline. My layover was too long without anyway to take a nap. I realize I get what I paid for, but we are not cattle. We think we are human. There should be some consideration for older people like me."

Cons: "It took 40 min to board. No entertainment."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Poor customer service, we left 2.5 hours late based on mechanical issues"

Cons: "Having to pay for a seat is medieval. Plane was delayed by 3 hours. Shitty flight"

Cons: "Carry-on charge. No snack. Delay. First and only bag for two passengers..........45.00 carry-on 45.00 ridiculous........"

Pros: "On one hand, you get what you pay for here. But in cutting out the frills, they do all the other things right. Flight left on time, landed early, and was reasonably comfortable."
Cons: "I knew I was going to have to pay for a carry-on bag. What I didn't realize is that drinking a club soda on the plane would cost $3. It's a little thing, but something to be aware of. Also, bring some reading material, as they do not have an in-flight magazine or wi-fi."

Cons: "Seats don't recline. Not much space for leg room. Really LOUD announcements over the PA by the crew, more of a commercial /advertisement for Frontier that makes you jump from your seat specially if one is trying to get some shut eye. Extra charge for carry on bags which they don't let you know until you are ready to check in! Needless to say that I'll be flying other airlines."

Pros: "Fast flight and good quality pricing for tickets."
Cons: "Seats could be a lot better."

Pros: "Nothing"

Cons: "Delayed flight. No complimentary snack. Long await to get on the plane."

Pros: "At least they were on time."
Cons: "Rude flight attendants. Don't include carry-on, and you actually have to pay more to get a seat. No snacks or drinks offered for free."

Pros: "cheap flight. really all there was to it. I got my plane ticket last min so I lucked out. was pissed that I was going to have to pay for a carryon so I check it instead. either way I saved money that way. from now on I would only fly frontier if I was doing a short distance. two hours or less, overnighters or long distance forget it. not worth going to a chiro after."
Cons: "seats dont recline, felt like I was flying in a C-130. then each time I boarded a flight back and to and from my destination. they were late. seats are very tiny was stuck next to larger people. not their fault but it sucked."

Pros: "Todo bien gracias"
Cons: "Más personas que hablen español Gracias"

Cons: "Paying for carrying a bag and for snacks. They aren't any cheaper than other major airlines when taking that into account. Do not recommend."

Pros: "PRICE"
Cons: "LATE DEPARTURE"

Cons: "Additional costs for selecting a seat and carrying on a bag that was not readily apparent when the flight was originally booked, but added $50+ to the overall cost of the flight. In addition, I experienced a 2+ hour delay on my flight from Chicago to LAX on a Sunday evening, which soured the comfortable end to my weekend travel experience."

Pros: "Friendly and professional staff!"
Cons: "Aircraft was not as clean, as anticipated. Dirty hand prints on the window panel and side wall. A passenger behind me complained about blood near her seating area."

Pros: "Waited for 50 mins on tarmak after being told we were going to be 30 mins early. Moved meetings and then had to move again. Not okay"

Pros: "The plane boarded and left on time and arrived on time."
Cons: "Almost everything! I chose this flight because of the price. However, upon check-in, there were three big extras : checked bags were $40 each, and any carry-on that could not fit below a seat was another $45! The icing on the cake wss that we had to pay for seats. The cheapest were an additional $5 each, and seats up front were $15 (although these were no different from those in the rear of the plane.) When we landed, the flight attendant announced that we were 20 minutes early and that we needed to "remember that the next time when we are 20 minutes late." As it turned out, we could not deplane for another 20 minutes anyway. I will not fly this airline again."

Pros: "The smiles on the staff, especially one young man who is an attendant. Told him he had a great smile for so early in the morning. Kudos for his attitude. There was an older gentleman who was an attendant also...this was the younger one. Love, love your destinations and prices."
Cons: "Seats could be more comfortable but I will take the tix price any day over that."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "We landed on time"
Cons: "Everything, this was a completely miserable experience! Pay extra to choose your seat or risk not sitting beside your spouse, pay extra for checked bags, extra for carry-on, extra for s soda, hard fixed seats can't even lean back. Avoid this airline for long flights!"

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Seating was very uncomfortable drinks and snacks were all at a charge constant advertising for promotional packages on the loud speaker not a good experience at all"

Cons: "No soap or paper towels in the commode area!!! Forced to use Germ X to cleanse our hands! Had to pay an additional amount for a seat and carry on? Was not made aware of that during booking!! A pillow would be nice!"

Pros: "Cheap flight. Crew was nice."
Cons: "Had to pay for everything from the food to seats. Flight was delayed 3 hours. Up charge of 60$ for carry on."

Pros: "It's cheap!"
Cons: "This is one of the worst airline I've been on. The seats are extremely uncomfortable and the space is so tight even for me (I'm only 5'1). They blast the AC so high that I can't even fall asleep. If I have a choice, I would avoid this airline. This was the only airline with the time that matched my schedule and with a very economical price."

Pros: "I am an easy going person and thought my expectations for air travel were low enough but this flight proved me wrong. After paying for the flight, then paying for your bags, and then paying to choose a seat, an extra $120 later, you are finally on the plane. The new seats are paper thin, the trays are the size of a trashy paper back novel, the arm rests are hard chunks of plastic that barely allowed room for an elbow. Being six feet tall I often feel a bit more cramped than others, i expect this, but this was the worst I can remember. In addition to the seats being the thickness of a potato chip, they do not recline (I was told they are "pre-reclided") and the seat backs are short which left my head bobbing well above the back of the seat. Meanwhile, my knees are firmly smashed up against the seat in front of me, preventing me from slouching at all to allow my head a place to rest. Then there was my polite request for a cup of water, "we have bottled water for $2". All beverages are for purchase only. There will be no sleep or comfort on this 2 hour flight, enjoy and thanks for flying."
Cons: "The crew was very nice, plane was clean, and the flight got in early."

Cons: "The flight was delayed 2.5 hours for no explained reason."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything, no lack of communication upon changes, horrible flight, no accomedations for delays, the lack of knowledge for known delays. The fact I have to pay for a check in ."

Pros: "Nothing"

Cons: "6+ hour delay"
