Cons: "The entertainment didn’t work/have a signal until our descent to land."
Cons: "Entertainment System wasn’t working properly. Movies were down as were many of the channels. Although a disappointment, JetBlue is still amazing!"
Cons: "There was a woman with a small dog who did not have a carrier and was being difficult- at boarding and on website it should have been made clear what the regulations were regarding pets"
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "The TV plug fed out static volume and the TV worked randomly .. The Afro American flight attended gave a nasty attitude and didnt allow me to completely request my order as if she was in a rush"
Pros: "We arrived early"
Cons: "The entertainment system was missing at my seat. It was also down for the entire plane. The crew missed my row for drinks."

Pros: "Loved the movie and tv show selections available"
Cons: "Direct TV did not work for me. Really wanted to watch the AFC championship football game but I couldnt because direct tv wasnt working."
Pros: "I boarded fast"
Cons: "flight attendant was moddy"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 90 minutes but the bigger issue is that after we boarded the crew told us that some paperwork needed to be signed but we didn’t leave the gate until 40 minutes later. The crew including the pilot never informed us as to what was going. Terrible communication. Also, in regard to myself, I was sitting in an Exit Row and the flight attendant came over to ask unless individually if we were willing and able to handle our responsibilities. Before each of us was ready to answer he said OK, turned around and left. What would have happened if we had a problem and someone in the Exit Rows had a concern?"
Pros: "Free wine , free coffee, quick flight"
Cons: "N/A"
Cons: "Plane was delayed 90 minutes for takeoff as it came in late."
Pros: "Flight crew was pleasant and entertainment was good"
Cons: "The delays, and the crew had no real answers they just kept pushing the time back very poor communication"
Cons: "Flight was way delayed. :("
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Checked in online, but no gate was assigned. When I asked the person at the desk what gate I was to board at, he looked up the information as if I was asking him for the access code Chase's bank vault. He didn't even write it down even thought he had a pen in his hand. Apparently, at customers, we are not suppose to get this information and it's a burden on the employees to give it. Again the flight was late and while I know it was due to weather, we were seated in the plane and sat at the gate for more than an hour. Apparently, we were not cleared to be given an update. Once again, the speakers at the seat didn't work. Apparently, this is a constant problem with JetBlue"
Pros: "Night masked"
Cons: "Flight attendant was rude as hell , she looked like she didn’t know what she was doing"
Pros: "On time and very friendly crew."
Pros: "Wow - perfect trip from booking to arrival in FLL. Easy website, luggage and assigned seat included. Helpful ground crew in BUF. And the best free inflight wifi. I will book again."
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "We were delayed due to poor weather on takeoff and on landing due to airport traffic."
Pros: "It seems like no big deal, but it makes such a difference when it's the last leg of a long trip. Thank you!"
Cons: "A woman was boarding the plane with two babies and clearly struggling to get to the back of the plane. When she could not handle it anymore she asked one of the flight attendants to help her. She was refused assistance by her. Then the flight attendant came to the front of the plane laughing uncontrollably say, "OMG, did you see her having a meltdown...she was asking me to help." She proceeded to laugh for the next 20 minutes repeating that the woman was helpless. I was disgusted by the flight attendant's behavior and attitude."
Pros: "The extra room. The staff was friendly."
Cons: "There could be additional snacks available especially on a flight that’s over 3 hrs. I had a short lay over in JFK and wasn’t able to buy a meal and very limited snacks on board so I left home 2:00 to be early and arrived at my destination at 2:30pm with only chips to eat"
Pros: "On time departure. Lot of seat room and good snacks."
Cons: "All was good. Just be sure the planes are ready to go bef it goes to the gate and passengers get in then to hear that there is a mechanical issue."
Pros: "Everything was on-time and we arrived early with no problems. Wasn't expecting even snacks/drinks on a 45 minute flight, but they served them. Crew was even more friendly and helpful than usual."
Cons: "E-mailed me advertising a free drink on BOS-->LGA flights, but I didn't see that."
Pros: "Ticket prices were very affordable. Check in was quick, smooth & easy. Flight was on time. I loved the leg room, the fact that snacks are unlimited & the crew was just super courteous."
Cons: "That my tv & wifi did not work properly on my return flight"
Pros: "Free beer!"
Cons: "Nothing, it was excellent!"
Pros: "JetBlue out of Marine Air Terminal at LGA is a game changer for this New Yorker. It made our lives unbelievably easier - no airport madness, quick security, friendly staff, and timely departure and arrival. It also makes it super easy to get a ride or rideshare (such as Lyft) to pick you up."
Pros: "Service and friendly staff"
Pros: "Easy on, no line organization but not a real problem. Friendly crew. Typical lovely JetBlue experience."
Cons: "My overhead light didn’t work. My seat mates tv didn’t work. We were in 13 A & C"
Pros: "Service was phenomenal"
Pros: "Quick and on time"
Cons: "My seat did not go back, and sitting upright the entire flight was very comfortable. When I asked the fight attendant about the seat, he said seats do not go back forward of the exit row. Had I known this, I would not have booked my seat. This information was not made clear to me when I arranged the flight. I am looking to book another flight R/T from Boston to NYC and would appreciate compensation for this upcoming flight."
Pros: "Polite crew. Flight on time."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "Smell in the air"
Pros: "the atmosphere, appearance of lga, the wheelchair service attendants-kind, courteous and attentive."
Pros: "the food options and staff"
Cons: "i reserved two seats together and when we checked in we were sitting apart."
Pros: "Boarding was easy. I like the Dunkin Donuts coffee"
Cons: "My overhead light and tv we're both not working. The stewardess was rude when I brought it up. Told me to move to the next empty seat dismissively. I bought a window seat on purpose and did not want to move. My concerns were left unaddressed"
Pros: "Service"
Pros: "miss the flight, plane was at the tarmic, door was not close, supperson supervisor was in the plane but gate was close, person at the gate did not try to contect the supervisor, thats not helpful at all"

They made us check carry ons despite the entire aircraft overhead space being empty

Departed 25 min late with no explanation. Arrival time was very off due to late departure but would have appreciated a better estimate.

I liked the timeliness of the departure and arrival, and the crew were good. The turbulence was rough, though.

The whole experience was great. Boarding is so orderly. The staff is super helpful. The wifi works great the whole flight so I was able to text for the entire flight. The best part was that it was orderly even when we were exiting the flight.

Pros: "Well organized and easy to check in."
Cons: "No"
Pros: "Plane seemed well maintained and newer. Crew seemed friendly."
Pros: "The crew and entertainment options are great. Relatively comfortable seats by today's standards."
Cons: "Literally any of our flights could have been on time. None were."
Pros: "Prompt boarding and departure."
Cons: "Refreshments and up to date airplane. Plane seem outdated and very loud. Flight attendants could use a friendlier demeanor"
Pros: "Crew was lovely"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 8 hours. Both the pilots and flight attendants timed out at different times. After boarding we had to deplane because crew was timing out. Had to fly new crew in from Atlanta. Was in airport from 10:50am to 8pm with airlines offering a bag of chips and water."
Pros: "Crew was very good."
Cons: "Seat assignment at gate was inconvenient b/c jt dissuades you from taking a bathroom break before the flight. They can't prefer that you go on the plane."
Pros: "I fly a lot, and I am very impressed with the level of consistency that Delta has offered the last couple of months. This flight didn’t disappoint. The crew was particularly friendly"
Cons: "Nothing I can think of-10/10"
Cons: "Crew didn’t serve drinks/snacks; otherwise nice and short flight"
Cons: "Seat assignment for me and my traveling companion was done at gate. We had to sit in 2 different rows."
Pros: "The ceew"
Cons: "Unorganized boarding and 6 hour delay from expected departure time."
Cons: "Terrible flight ? Captain lied to to us and kept saying two more minutes 5 more minutes , etc Stuck for 4 hours . Plane had a problem and captain said it was glued and that was suppose to be like that"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled after multiple delays and waiting 8 hours"
Pros: "Crew was friendly, cabin was clean."
Cons: "No Tvs"
Cons: "We were already very delayed, the flight crew was not nice"
Cons: "Choice of healthier snack"
Pros: "Flight attendant in first class was amazing."
Pros: "Zee was our flight attendant and she was absolutely wonderful. Personable, attentive, and she made sure each and every person on the plane was comfortable and happy, going so far as to move solo passengers to empty rows so they could have more space. I wish she could be on every flight I take."
Pros: "Arrived on time and smooth flight though it was completely full"
Pros: "Everything went smoothly. Even though we were delayed for 10 mins We still managed to make it to NYC on time. The crew was friendly. The entertainment was exceptional. Really I have no complaints. I am so happy that they were able to accommodate a seat change at no charge as well."
Pros: "Overall Service!!!!"
Cons: "People Should Use The Overhead Bins Next To Their Seats, "Not Someone Else's", Thank You Very Much"
Pros: "Fine, courteous"
Pros: "Excellent flight with efficient service. Flight was on time and friendly staff"
Cons: "Efficiency"
Pros: "The Delta service desk was great! We wanted to get an earlier flight home and the Delta Rep got us on standby quickly and with a smile."
Cons: "Some chaos getting on the flight. The area they have set up for the different sections to wait before getting called weren't marked very well so everyone was bunched up and confused. Once they started calling the sections it was fine. Not sure why they even had the marked areas."
Pros: "Crew was pleasant. Boarding was fast and efficient, nobody bumrushed."
Cons: "The non-reclining seat right next to the bathroom door opening should not exist. I was miserable there; I swear everyone on the plane made sure to take a dump on this <2 hour flight. Also none of the windows on any of these small planes line up with the actual positions of seats and it sucks."
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: "My flight was delayed, which would have caused me to miss my connecting flight. The customer service person was not at all helpful, and told me there were no other flights available on any airline until the next day. However, I was able to go online and book another flight immediately...which means that she was either being disingenuous or actively undermining efforts to get me home in a timely fashion. Very disappointing and as a SkyMiles member would have thought there would be some level of common courtesy dealing with a non-weather related delay that drastically impacted my travel plans."
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: "The crew did the best they could under the circumstances."
Cons: "The flight was scheduled for 7:45 pm. Due to the storm the day before, my flight out of Miami was cancelled and I was told that the flight out of W Palm Beach was my only option. I paid $150 for an Uber at 4 pm. At 6:37, I got an email with news of a two hour delay. I would’ve appreciated an earlier notice. But much worse was the boarding experience. As half the passengers had boarded, someone announced that we had to have everyone boarded and seated in 5 minutes, or else the crew would time out, and we’d have to stay in WPalm. This set off a frenzy, with seated passengers yelling at the people boarding to hurry!! I was told by the pilot while exiting in LGA, that we made it by 30 seconds! It could’ve been handled so much better!"
Cons: "Delayed for no reason"
Pros: "Got me where I needed to go at the price I wanted to pay. - The gals at the ticketing desk were extremely helpful and cheerful."
Cons: "Not my typical Delta experience: -Boarding for special needs was a joke. A literal ‘run-on-sentence’. No more did I get up and they went to the next group. I was almost knocked over in the rush. -The onboard staff was nice enough. However, between the two of them, one of them had a thick accent. Maybe that one shouldn’t be the one making all on board announcements… and please fix the horrendous crackles too!!! -It seemed our pilot was in training… during our short flight a series of right and left turns were made, no effort to avoid turbulence, and the landing was surprisingly hard. It felt as if my spine took a quick jab to my brain as a result! What’s up?"

Pros: "Great trips notifications"
Pros: "I asked for a change of seat at the gate and was given it. It really made a difference to be at the window."
Pros: "Very nice flight and attentive staff. Enjoyed the view of NYC as we flew up the East River, then looped over Nassau County to approach LGA."
Cons: "The male flight attendant who handed out the complimentary drinks and snacks acted a bit strangely. I was very thirsty, and I asked him if I could keep the rest of the can of soda. He neither said yes nor no, but rather completely ignored what I said and just poured my drink and moved on. I was a mildly annoyed, but figured maybe it was policy and he was shy and didn't want to debate the matter. When he took care of the older couple behind us, however, things got really strange. He asked them whether they wanted pretzels or peanuts, but they misheard him and asked for a ginger ale. I happened to know that he did have ginger ale, since my wife had just gotten one, but rather than just pouring the old folks a drink, he repeated himself. "Peanuts or pretzels?" They misheard again and asked him whether he had a diet ginger ale. Again, rather than just pour them the drink, he repeated himself. "Peanuts or pretzels?" This went round and round a few more times -- like a poorly designed computer UI that refuses to accept anything except the correct input -- before the old couple finally figured out the disconnect and picked their snacks before their drinks. Very weird."
Pros: "Please call me. Why did you double charge me? I took my parents for a trip and you charge me 2 twice?? Call me 416 888 4387"
Cons: "You charge me twice. Call me 416 888 4387"
Cons: "Arrived "early" only to sit on tarmac for over 45 minutes with no air , I'd rather leave later , get there at the right time and not sit in a plane with no air for extended time"
Pros: "Cabin crew were great. Food selection is good and appreciate the snacks."
Cons: "Wish all seats and electrical outlets. Was forced to check my bag at the gate and DID NOT think it was nessesary. There was plenty of room on the plane. They also didn't allow me to take my medicine out before it was checked. Luckily there were no issues with getting it back."
Pros: "Pleasant crew, newer plane, and very efficient travel time"
Cons: "The boarding process was extremely slow, "Comfort Plus" seats in the smaller regional jet were definitely not worth the upgrade."
Pros: "The agent on my departure flight at the ATL airport was amazing, boarding was quick, the flight attendants were great! I had an overall great experience."
Cons: "Turbulence was pretty bad both flights."
Pros: "Return trip was 30 min ahead of schedule"
Cons: "We had a 2 hour delay getting to NYC"
Cons: "Not enough water on the flight and we landed in a parking lot and shuttled back to the airport."
Pros: "The Delta cookies that were offered as a snack"
Cons: "I don't understand why there's always a lack of space when the flight is full. Were the aircrafts not designed to accommodate a full flight's worth of luggage? anf then when I went to go to my seat, the air stewardess told me to progress down the aisle so someone that they knew could pass through, causing a delay in me getting to my seat as well as losing my overhead luggage space as someone else passing utilized it instead. Now I am in my seat with both my carry on and personal item stowed below. So was I comfortable ? No. Was I upset and annoyed, on top of being tired? Yes. They need a better system."
Pros: "The flight itself was fairly quick."
Cons: "We were late by 4hours and they kept changing the times. I wish they would have set it to one time like the other airlines. The seating is uncomfortable and there was no entertainment."
Cons: "There were many empty seats, and when I moved from a cramped seat to a fully open row, the attendant rudely and humiliatingly admonished me for moving to a comfort+ from my "preferred" seat. It was unprofessional and extremely uncalled for. The seats were completely empty and there was no reason for him to admonish me loudly and rudely. I suffer from severe general anxiety disorder, fur which I take appropriate medications, but this incident caused an anxiety attack that lasted through the rest of the flight. Extremely disturbing that crew would behave so rudely and insensitively to anyone."
Cons: "Plane was dirty when boarding and older than usual with a broken intercom speaker above us - squawking volume that rang every time the captain or seatbelt light came on. Staff were loud throughout this evening flight where everyone tried to get some shut eye. NOT kid friendly. overhead bins didn't fit the standard carry on correctly requiring everyone to place them sideways with wasted space and therefore not enough luggage room for everyone, crowding an already fully booked flight. A few more reasons why we'll never fly delta again"
Cons: "Plane was diverted back to Toronto from LaGuardia airport as we were told due to "weather", landed late at night and were told that due to not being able to control weather WestJet could not assist with accommodations, leaving everyone stranded and scrambling to find a room in alreday booked up hotels. When speaking on phone with agent, I was told it wasn't due to weather but incident at LaGuardia where plane went off runway. I paid $130.00 for 5 hours in a hotel, due to pilot error, not weather. La Guardia opened it's other runway immediately after and other airports in NewYork were running fine. Completely unacceptable and extremely bad customer service as CSR simply told us "sorry we can't help". Will never book with West Jet again."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Special assistance readily available"
Cons: "The weather"
Cons: "We had to wait for an hour on the runway until we could approach the gate"
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "If there were no delays"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable enough to sleep for a few hours"
Cons: "The ac in cabin could have been a lot colder"
Cons: "Baggage handler lost my bag, grabbed it off plane cabin, never found"
Cons: "Too freakin cold."
Cons: "No personal entertainment system. Has to use my phone."
Cons: "Delayed flight. Seat didn't recline."
Pros: "A bit more legroom than united airlines. Tvs were a plus. The service was excellent and they give you a full can of soda instead of just a dram."
Cons: "Nothing really it was a great value for the price."
Cons: "No delay"
Pros: "the best seat ever and very amazing crew"
Pros: "The crew were nice people."
Cons: "There was no air conditioning and we were re-routed all the way down to Kentucky on the way back!"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Landing, temperature, passengers"
Pros: "I arrived safely at my destination"
Cons: "Flight was turbulent, plane was messy, crew had a hard time noticing when passengers needed anything."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled, some staff I dealt with to rebook had some attitude issues, others where fine. Overall not very transparent throughout the process. Definitely could've been much more helpful."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They canceled my flight. And they keep us at the airport until 10pm to tell us that flight got canceled. The worst part was they offer us to we buy with with “discount” embarrassing. They could tell me at 6pm that flight is canceled and to find other way to get to nyc."
Cons: "plane was too hot...AA needs to keep a lower temp and pump air through their plane...on a crowded flight like this was, claustrophobia set in. First time I ever experienced this."
Pros: "Yes the flight was slightly empty so I had a ton of room!!!!"
Pros: "Knowing what carousel luggage was at - I suppose."
Cons: "Extended wait times in taxi departing and landing - took over an hour longer than expected. LaGuardia airport forced passengers to take their car services by walking outside and waiting in a parking garage with (12 degree Fahrenheit feels like -4 and 20 mph winds). Felt frostbite, couldn’t move fingers, and have a sinus headache. absolutely appalling this is NY and USA - yet we can’t have car services pick up pasengers outside the door of the airport, instead require to walk 7 minutes and stand in a freezing air tunnel airport garage. Changes my mind on flying to LAGUARDIA in the future"
Pros: "Comfortable seats and snack / drinks service"
Cons: "Delayed flight departure and bumpy landing"
Cons: "They lost my luggage. They did not allow me to take her whit me in the plane because i did not fit a suitcase that always travel on top because is small suitcase terrible I will never travel again with amercan airlines"
Cons: "Our last 6 flights have all been changed or delayed significantly. Then they loose our bags on a direct flight. Won’t fly America airlines again!"
Cons: "X"
Cons: "Took off late from Minneapolis only to announce that there was something wrong with the plane, no explanation as to what but that we had to circle to burn off fuel before returning to Minneapolis. Switched to a flight to D.C. with a connection to get to LGA. As soon as we sat down on that flight an announcement was made that we wouldn't make our connecting flight. Got to D.C. and asked to switch to go into Westchester instead of LGA which we were denied. So changed to another connecting flight to LGA that didn't take off on time. Offered nothing for any of the inconveniences. Etc."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly."
Pros: "The available movies and games in personal screen"
Cons: "Seat selection"
Cons: "When I arrived at the gate, the flight was on time, but no aircraft was at the gate. The gate attendants left at the time we were supposed to Board, then the departure time changed on the board and no announcement was made. Another gate attendant told me that the aircraft was at DYT, but the reason for delay was crew rest. As the delays continued, 3 in all, we were told that the aircraft was at DYT but we were waiting on a crew to be flown in from Charlotte. Not sure how AA messed up their crew rest schedule on domestic regional jet carrier. Either way, a new gate attendant arrived to take over, and continued to tell us we were waiting on crew. Then the story changed to waiting on aircraft and crew. By the time the 3rd change in departure had been made, and we were still waiting on aircraft and cre, AA failed to continue to update the departure and arrival times. Once we boarded around 9:00pm the boarding time still showed 8:10pm. Then we sat on the runway awaiting departure for approx 40 minutes before taking off. Very poor communication And customer service."
Pros: "We had to wait in the airplane upon arrival in La Guardia NY because wheelchair was not ready."
Pros: "BATE AND SWITCH. I BUY A TICKET TO DISCOVER IT DOENST ALLOW ME TO CARRY MY ROLLER BAG ON BOARD UNLESS I PAY A $60.00 FEE, YES $60. I GUESS THIS IS HOW TO MAKE A PROFIT EVEN IF YOU MAKE YOUR CUSTOMER FEEL LIKE A SUCKER! THANKS AMERICAN AIRLINE FOR LETTING ME KNOW YOU ONLY CARE ABOUT YOUR STOCKHOLDER AND THE CUSTOMER IS JUST A WAY TO MAKE THE STOCKHOLDERS AND EXECUTIVES (WHO GET BIG BONUS') HAPPY. SINCE YOU NOW ACT LIKE SPIRIT AIRLINES MAYBE YOU SHOULD MERGE WITH THEM TOO. I WANT BE TRAVELING AMERICAN AGAIN UNLESS ITS THE ONLY CHOICE I HAVE. IM GLAD TO SHARE MY STORY WITH OTHERS."
Cons: "NOTHING"
Pros: "The mobile updates were helpful and timely."
Cons: "The overhead space was smaller on this plane and as I learned on my trip to DTW my weekender carry-on would not fit with my shoes in it. Because of this, I pulled my shoes out and put them in a collapsible bag that fit under the seat in front of me along with my small personal bag as I had done on my previous flight. However, the gate agent would not allow me to board the plane and would not listen to my explainations at all as I tried to keep the boarding process moving along. She kept repeating "you have 3 bags" and made me steep out of line and check my carry-on (which I would then have to pick up at baggage claim). When I asked why I couldn't get out on the jetway like she had done for other passengers she said, " I only did that for airline employees" (quick happened to be a flight attendant from Spirit). My overall experience on both flights to and from Detroit was that the gate agents and flight attendants were the most unhelpful and rude airline employees I have delt with and I will stick to my preferred carrier, Delta, for my future flights back and forth to Detroit. They certainly make me feel like a valued customer when I fly them, which I did not feel with American."
Cons: "The plane was very old."
Cons: "We waited for 3 hours inside the plane on taxi then had to get off for an hour because of traffic delays."
Pros: "i like the wifi internet that AA provided. Great movies"
Cons: "The flight attendants were highly rude and i felt as if i was discriminated on. I was sitting in the back and the flight attendant who was suppose to assist us made us feel like i was a bother to her. First of all she just rudly dropped biscuits on my table didnt ask if i wanted and then I had to ask her for coffee, she didnt ask me if i wanted something to drink. 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: "I am missing two items that I had in my checked bag and my clothes and belongings were all messy as if it had been gone through. I am very upset that these items were likely taken by whoever went through my bag."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight attendant called cops on passenger sitting next to me to be escorted off the plane for no reason!"
Pros: "Got to La Guardia almost 26 minutes early but then waited FORTY minutes for the gate!"
Cons: "AA needs better coordination with the horrible La Guardia airport"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled we were re-routed and didn't get there until 24hours later."
Cons: "Late late cancelled chaos in reassignment late late One agent threw up hands said I'm done and left with long line of passengers not yet reassigned Person behind me asked why didn't we take Delta?"
Pros: "Everything was on time and great."
Cons: "Ever thing was fine."
Cons: "Without any explanation...American Airlines cancelled my reservation! I needed to be sent back to poor quality hotel for a night and take a different flight out the next morning. American Airlines was supposed to provide transportation back and forth from the hotel however a car never showed up at the hotel to pick us up and I needed to get my own taxi at the last minute (American did however reimburse me for the taxi fare at the airport). I never received an explanation as to why my reservation was cancelled and was never offered any type of compensation for such a major inconvenience. They dd ultimately waive my 25 bag fee but it wasn't very easy to even get that from them. I felt that they should have been more empathetic towards my inconvenience and offered me any type of compensation to make up for such a horrible experience. When I asked about possibly being upgraded to first class they told me absolutely not! A little graciousness can go a long way, American Airlines showed that they could not care less about my inconvenience (other than Rodrigo at the counter the next morning who actually showed he was truly sorry for the situation and at least ended up moving me to a row with more legroom). Other than this, I was extremely disappointed with this experience and how it was handled."
Pros: "I liked how quick the flight was to New York"
Cons: "Once boarding the plane and searching for my seat number , all of the cabin went pitch black . The lights went out for not more than a few moments. When the lights came back it was problematic and dim then fully lit to flickering off and on. Whenever it "seems" to have any electrical or mechanical failure. It's natural as a passenger my first thought is it's a Bad omen . I had genuinely lost some faith in the plane ."
Cons: "American airlines was helpful to embark my daughter who lost her conection from Miami to NYC"
Pros: "It was good fly can't complaint the attention was great"
Cons: "When I was flying to Arkansas from NY they didn't give anything to eat"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled. this is the third flight that has been cancelled to this destination. I waited for 7 hours in the airport and caught a flight on stand by. Because this has happended to me before I knew how to get a stand by ticket right away even though I was scheduled on a flight for later that day. Much later."
Pros: "Very efficient boarding, comfortable coach seats, good crew"
Cons: "No food! except pretzels and sandwiches for purchase. I didn't purchase a sandwich but on the outbound flight, the two guys next to me did and were both vocal about their disappointment with what they received for $9. And they were strangers who didn't talk to each other the rest of the time, so I think they meant it. Also, entertainment: they had a movie on the pop-down screens, and 4 free movies to stream to your device using on-board Wifi, as well as 2 TV shows. So maybe I'm being harsh. But it was a transcontinental flight and they didn't have headrest screens loaded with movies. Is this only for international flights? The movies were bad, or at least not appealing to me ('Keanu' and 'Zoolander 2'). It was possible to pay for additional movies, but who wants to do that? It was sort of the EasyJet model, where you get good basic service but pay for everything additional that one gets for free on Delta. Maybe that was reflected in the price I paid for the ticket, but I was expecting that AA would be in the same league as United and Delta. One nice perk: free wifi for T-Mobile customers, including me."
Pros: "The gate crew in Roanoke were professional and helpful. The next day's flight was on time and uneventful."
Cons: "The flight attendant was unfriendly at boarding. He did not say or play any pre-flight safety announcements. We were told the flight might have to refuel in Richmond due to major weather delays in LGA. When we were landing they said they expected a refuel and a quick turnaround in Richmond. On the plane after landing, I learned via my phone's internet the flight was cancelled. They never announced it on the plane. At the final moment before we disembarked, the crew told us to be sure to take our belongings. When we landed, Flightaware showed delays of 45 minutes at LGA. AA never took responsibility for the problem though the gate crew mentioned they canceled the flight because the crew was going to be over their maximum hours. AA really couldn't plan to allow for up to an hour delay? I feel disrespected and even deceived. Although it was clear that flight attendant really needed to get off that plane. At the gate, we were told there were no available flights to NYC and were stranded overnight in Richmond. AA did offer a hotel pretending it was a courtesy since they claimed the problem was weather related and not theirs. We chose to stay with relatives and were told AA could only provide transportation from the airport which we did not need. We often have problems and cancellations on this route from when it was branded a US Air route to the present, but this was egregious."
Pros: "Crew was very professional and courteous. Our plane landed early which is a plus"
Cons: "I didn't like the fact some of the seats appeared to be dirty , I sat on a book."
Pros: "Very professional and friendly."
Cons: "N/A"
Cons: "The pilots did not show up for my flight after my other connecting flight was delayed and a previous fkight had been cancelled."
Cons: "Disastrous rescheduling"
Pros: "787 is a nice plane. I also like getting miles since I accumulate most miles with United. Not much else to boast about."
Cons: "The outbound plane from Newark to Frankfurt was late by 1.5 hr because United could not figure out how to bring the plane (that was sitting in the middle of the airfield to the gate and then they realized that they need get catering supplies to feed the passengers and we were waiting for that too. The inbound flight from Frankfurt to Newark was late by 1.45 hours since they were fixing a computer problem on board. The flight was totally over air-conditioned and when I asked to bring an extra blanket for me the flight attendant started lecturing me that I was wearing shorts and a polo shirt (in the 86F heat at FRA and EWR it was ok!) and that she had no blankets. The second flight attendant who for some reason came 2 miins after the first one apologized for the attitude of his female colleague and immediately brought me an extra blanket."
Cons: "Broken video monitor on my seat and window seat. Ripped and dirty pockets on all the back of the seats in the row in front of me. Just a feeling of disrepair."
Pros: "Comfortable and efficient"
Cons: "No vegan food options left"
Pros: "Check in was very good Both Outward and Return flights were on time. Crew very attentive Seating not too bad (if you haven't got long legs)"
Cons: "Food could be a bit more varied - some people don't like pasta and some people don't like chicken - what was left????? Should have different entertainment on different legs of the journey Not really Flight-related but Passport Control in US could do with a review .... waiting a good hour or so - come stations were empty and those that weren't the staff were changing shifts while there was still loads of people to go through - not nice when you have people meeting you."
Pros: "Flight was quick and uneventful."
Cons: "50 minutes wait on the runway in a very small plane. No room for carry ons"
Cons: "Couldn't connect to the onboard entertainment system through my laptop."
Pros: "Service was very good, they were on time and considering the flight time food was good too."
Pros: "The TV shows and movie collection is good."
Cons: "Horrible food, no complimentary drinks on economy plus seats. UNITED lost my luggage again (2nd time this year)."
Cons: "my reservation was cancelled by united with out checking with me."
Pros: "all smooth"
Pros: "Not a lot of positive to say"
Cons: "Ignorant, rude air hostess, two male hostess, double act the pair of them, if they had of been recorded they would be first today. As I said in my headline, if you hate your job that much find one that makes you happy, United need to do secret shopper experiences on their planes, to quality check their hostess, this cowboys are representing your company and its not good."
Pros: "No faults"
Cons: "Very pleasant flight"
Pros: "Relatively comfortable seat, decent entertainment and nice crew."
Cons: "50 minutes on the tarmac in Newark waiting for the gate."
Cons: "My connecting flight was delayed by 4 hours due tknsmong in India. I called United ahead of time to tell them I was not able to make my flight and if there was anyway I could get a new ticket. The representative was confident that 40 minutes between my flights at Delhi was enough time to make it despite me reminding her about the time it took to get off the plane, pick up my luggage, get through immigrations and travel to my terminal. She was very wrong. She insisted I call them when I land and that I go to the ticket booth. Little did she know that once I miss my flight my ticket is no longer valid and I was no longer able to enter the airport in India. Once I reached the entrance I was directed to a Untied booth all the way at the end of the terminal and was told to buy a new ticket. There was no United representative at this booth. I waited 3 hours and even called the number posted at the booth. No one picked up and no one came. I had wasted several hours. I ultimately decided to buy a ticket online spending another thousand dollars to get back home when I was told that I would be given a new ticket at the booth by United. But I had to wait another 24 hours outside the airport because I was not allowed in so early prior to my flight. Very unprofessional and unhelpful when I needed it the most."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "The flight attendants were rude, impatient and generally seemed unhappy to be working on this particular flight."
Pros: "Friendly staff, happy to help"
Cons: "Was all good"
Pros: "The cabin crew weren't charging people for alcohol on the flight"
Cons: "On checking in we had to use a machine to print our boarding passes and take our bags to a bag drop in Newark. The man proceeded to put a large tray on the conveyor belt, swing our bags in the air then smash them down into the tray. This was done to both bags as if we weren't there. Had there been something expensive in there it would have been totally destroyed. He really couldn't have cared less about our bags and their contents. We were talking to a woman on the plane who was telling us that a woman a few rows behind who had a new born baby as was told she would be given a seat with extra legroom had this taken away from her to United could sell the seat to someone paying for it. The chicken and orzo dinner was absolutely revolting. The orzo was so over cooked that it just turned to mush and the chicken really didn't taste like it had ever seen a chicken. All this combined with the issues we had on our flight out show that United are scum and just see you as ££. Sorry I cant be more complementary than that, its just the truth."
Pros: "Staff were very helpful especially with delayed flights etc"
Cons: "Aircraft was very old, bad food, lack of entertainment, poor tv and hard to use, uncomfortable seats"
Cons: "Long delay in Knoxville because of atc clearance issues and there is not much to do in the terminal. Only give snacks and water would of rathered a sandwich"
Pros: "Economy seats had ok legroom."
Cons: "Connecting flight was cancelled so we automatically got out on the next flight. Our stop over went from 2h to over 7h. Staff at checkin were very unhelpful. They told us to go to the website to request a refund and wouldn't offer us any flight upgrades. We got on the flight and people were told not to sit in the unoccupied enconomy plus seats unless they paid for them. Pretty poor that considering there were at least 2 rows of seats available they are so tight they can't even be bothered to compensate us in a way that won't effect their bottom line. We completed the return request only to be told that refunds are not offered on schedule changes. Again pretty shoddy customer service and shows that all they are about is your money. The breakfast we had was disgusting. The melted cheese looked like someone had vomited onto my tray. On waiting for our connecting flight there was an old lady who was dumped at a gate on a wheel chair. They person then left without telling them what was happening. We could see she was anxious about not knowing what was happening. My wife went to the United help desk to ask for information for the lady's flight and was told she should just check the information board and dismissed. Not sure how an old lady who can't walk is meant to do this (this was explained to them). If United had bothered to make some kind of effort to be at least helpful in any stage with refunding / upgrading us and being helpful to an old lady maybe this review would be different. Ultimately all they care about is your money and will deliver a shockingly bad customer service wherever they can get away with it. I WONT be flying United again. I will pay more for another airline."
Cons: "Seat kicked throughout the flight from behind, screaming child in my ear on the side, constantly declining and inclining chair in front. Melted ice cream and butter. Butter poured onto my lap on opening! Audio didn't work on films. Couldn't store my bag anywhere near my seat Utterly dreadful"
Pros: "All the staff (both at the terminal and on the flight) were all extremely friendly and helpful and very efficient."
Pros: "Check-in at Heathrow T2 staff were excellent and very helpful."
Cons: "Price of a small mug of coffee £3.85 and it wasn’t even Starbucks it was a machine at the weatherspoon’s!"
Pros: "I like the price and the time of the flight. Thank you"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "very kind crew members and flight was an hour early."
Cons: "The worst food on an airline ever...witnessed so much waste all around me. No one could eat it. Entertainment broken and sound quality awful."
Pros: "The United Airlines lady on the desk at Terminal 2 was tremendously helpful (she had an Indian name beginning with S). She helped me sort out my ESTA and ETA for Canada and ensured I got through security without too much delay."
Cons: "I am pregnant and took a 12-hour flight. The flight crew did not provide me with food for 11 hours of that flight. When I asked the flight attendants for food they told me they had none, and it was my fault I didn't bring anything to eat. then I saw them handing out food to business class. I understand that I did not shell out the class to fly business class, but it's not okay to not feed a pregnant woman. Additionally, when I was flying form you were not allowed t bring water onto the plane. The flight attendants only provided me one small water bottle an two small cups of water. I asked for more but they said no :( I will never fly United again"
Pros: "Service,management, food"
Cons: "Entertainment was awful. You have to watch movies on your phone and then the wifi/app doesn't even work!"
Cons: "Let's first start off with the fact that my luggage was a few pounds over and it cost me $200. Yes read that again $200! My extra 5 pounds of luggage was $200... but if I wanted to bring a second bag up to 50lbs it would of been $100. This clearly is the stupidest thing ever. Then my flight was delayed by 45 mins. The staff were super rude... I asked if some of the food options were vegetarian and the workers like hysterically laughed in my face... well cheese omlets can be veggie or have meat. So I didn't understand why that was funny. Overall terrible experience, I will reconsider flying on United. It's not worth it."
Pros: "They got my vegetarian food order right"
Cons: "Old airplanes both there and back, we had a choice of a few movies on a TV that we couldn't access on demand so you had to start half way through, and the quality was appalling. We were supposedly promised we could stream onto our devices via wifi but this didn't happen"
Cons: "That I never made it to Dallas and so lost my job. Thanks to unitrd."
Cons: "The flight was full to capacity"
Pros: "The flight was on time. Nothing else was acceptable about the travel on this plane."
Cons: "I was made to check in my carry on bag because United made this Economy Basic ticket where they fly the over head bins empty. They charge 25 for the checked bag and only allow a personal item on board. This idiotic arrangement wasn't even clear to me during booking. And i don't understand what sense it makes to create an entire class of passengers stripped of their luggage. It's definitely not customer-centric approach. The wifi was dead. It is ALWAYS dead. No entertainment was provided. I'd prefer the flights from the 90s where i could watch a film on a shared screen with headphones."
Pros: "Food was good. Staff were great. Headphones not the best."
Pros: "Nothing!!! It was handled in a terrible way"
Cons: "The way they didn't care"
Cons: "Original flight booked was for 1:30. Week before changes to 5:30. Then 6:30. Arrive at the airport and flights delayed to 7. Then 730. 8. 830 etc etc etc til 11. No explanation. No food tickets. Rude responses like this gem: pointed out how long I was waiting with no word --> told by a united employee that he's been there since 7am. I point out he's bad to be there. He says he's not. I guess a united volunteer then? Then only handed out water since 'it's a short flight'. Useless."
Cons: "Southwest has much better experience."
Pros: "Smooth boarding. Arrived at designated time"
Cons: "Really only a snack pack and water."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Departing flight was delayed, United could not get me to Richmond before 5 pm. Not acceptable. They had to book me on another airline. Never took the united flights."
Cons: "That there was no one at gate to direct us to customer service being that most of us missed our flight due to equipment repair and hold up from Newark. I fly delta most of my trips. When this happens with them. They have a rep at the gate to help you. Also. There were only two people at the customer service desk for all of us. You should have had all four stations available to expedite the process of reschedualling. Everyone one agreed that united just did not care. So sad. We had a very tired infant with us. What should have been a short twenty minute flight turned into two hours."
Pros: "Crew. Aircraft selection."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "Boarded plane with my 8 week old baby. After getting settled had to deplane due to mechanical issues. Then I stalled feeding as he has to nurse during takeoff to relieve pressure. Airline kept slightly postponing it so wasn't comfortable nursing as I needed him to eat during takeoff. But no realistic time was ever given. Eventually they cancelled flight and they rebooked next day. Then united realized they would have to give travel vouchers / hotel if flight was cancelled so they re labeled it "delayed" to avoid putting everyone up in a hotel. 13.5 hrs of a delay overnight is not a delay and deserves better treatment! To add insult to injury, my GATE checked stroller took 45 min to come up to the top of the jetway. 45 minutes! I had to ask 4 times with a screaming 8 week old with nowhere to set him! The kind girl kept paging down to them but nobody would bring it up. It was absolutely horrible. Then today at check-in they couldn't figure out how to print the infant boarding pass which ultimately took 30-40 min of the lady trying to no avail. I arrived 1 hr 10 min early to my flight and nearly missed it due to United. The issues with printing my "infant voucher" caused me to have to run through the airport and frantically collapse stroller to make on time. With zero sleep thanks to the debacle the night before. Beyond disappointed and believe should be compensated for this experience."
Pros: "Nice plane, great crew. on time departure and early arrival."
Cons: "United has terrible boarding procedures... a problem most airlines have... they need to get it together to stop the mad rush to get on the plane... 5 boarding groups does absolutely nothing... On a side note many things could be improved by offering free checked baggage and charge for overhead bins.... so many delays, arguments and general aggravation caused by people struggling for overhead bin space... just have a guaranteed spot overhead for a fee.... no more aggravation period... when they started charging for checked bags but offered free carry on the problems got worse... flip it around and several problems go away... simple."
Cons: "Ok for a short flight"
Pros: "The boarding was quick and efficient. The crew was super friendly."
Cons: "The plane is old. It lacks entertainment amenities. Bolt Bus and Grayhound are luxurious in comparison to this United plane."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I don't think it's fair that you don't any money back of you cancel your plane ticket. It shouldn't matter what type of ticket it was. You should at least be allowed a voucher for the amount of the ticket at a later date. Even if it's a percentage off, you should be allowed something. How is it that you can buy a car worth thousands, and be allowed to return it under the Lemon Law. When a company called can make billions of dollars doing this, it's just taking advantage of the little people."
Pros: "the afternoon coffee, not offered by others"
Pros: "Quick and efficient"
Cons: "Very small and hard to sleep if you are a tall human. Ended up with neck ache"

On the mike they said if you can breathe it means your not wearing your mask properly

Nice flight. Seats are very uncomfortable though

We waited for bags in Tampa airport for 2 hours. Also, no food or even water. Not going on it again

Avoid delays Add carry-on/ checked in bags option while confirming tickets, not after. No hidden fees Modern fleet with better sound proof system because air pressure was too much

Pros: "The crew was very friendly AMD nice"
Cons: "It would have been better if my chair reclined and that baby didn't cry my whole flight"
Pros: "The crew was great. Frontier does not offer food or drink in flight. Included or for purchase. Long flight without a drink. No entertainment of any kind."
Cons: "A drink"
Cons: "Frontier seems to always have friendly staff"
Pros: "Crew was grumpy. So glad that I brought my own water and snacks for the long flight! Why would I pay $2.99 for water on the flight? No Wi-Fi, AT ALL. Ridiculous to have to pay for everything. Never again. You guys need to update your system. No savings at all."
Cons: "Stop charging for every little thing. Train your crew better to deal with travelers. Update your services."
Cons: "It’s was delayed 3 hours in buffalo ."
Pros: "Couldn't get buttons to work on previous page. flight was fine"
Pros: "They informed us about 5 hours in advance there was a delay."
Cons: "The flight was very late. They gave me a voucher for $50 as a consolation, but it is only on purchasing a new ticket within 90 days, not very helpful. Since they nickel and dime you for seat selection, checked bags etc, it would be nice to at least use the voucher for seat selection on my return trip."
Pros: "Very good. All as is supposed to be"
Pros: "Nothing. Absolutely nothing. I mean I got where I was going and didn’t die, but that’s about the extent of the positive things I have to say."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats, no beverage service. Up charge for literally everything, carry on’s were charged, as much as checking bags. I’ll be avoiding frontier like the plague in the future."
Pros: "Flight was on time and boarding was smooth. The crew was great!"
Pros: "The flight was clean and nice we enjoy crew they are friendly I had sugar was down and she give me orange juice very fast thanks for that"
Pros: "Seats are like park benches No food options"
Cons: "I haven’t take this tripe because of emergency"
Pros: "price and non-stop flight"
Cons: "The flight was 60+ minutes late, due to another plane sitting on the runway. The other plane kept passengers sitting on the tarmac for over an hour. We were told the plane had mechanical problems. The waiting area was so crowded with people it was people standing all over the place...it turned out that 2 flights full of people were waiting there. When we finally boarded, the plane had to be refueled and the plane had to be started up by being jumped or something because one motor was not working normallly; this was a bit frightening. Staff was not even smiling, or even comforting when we boarded. Brief apology by pilot."
Pros: "Flight was great. Checkin etc was great"
Pros: "The service was Ok, but our flight was 4 hours delayed and it wasn't mechanical or weather related delay, the airline made a scheduling error, we almost missed our car rental and we didn't get to our destination til really late at night when it should been there in the daytime. Overall, won't fly with them again"
Cons: "Boarding passengers that need assistance with the rest of the flight was not smart"
Pros: "Direct floght for the route with really no competition for the same airports and similar times. Checkin staff was courteous, embarking was swift, flight on time, safe, no issues."
Cons: "No quick bag drop off option, very slow to be processed. Tons of fees, they really add up and if you pay the extras it can easily be more expensive than the competitors. Super rude and careless flight attendant. Asked for bathroom permission for my 3-year-old once we were at full altitude and she denied. Sure enough 2 minutes later an adult just went for it. Then as the seatbelt sign was off she was blocking the aisle with the trolley. When I asked kindly to make room, she didn’t even acknowledge that she heard my request... she did, eventually, without even looking at me. Also very slow to get the stroller and a bit slow to get the baggage but these latter issues may be airport dependent."
Pros: "I thought that everything went fine except for the weather delays but I know that is not the fault of the airline."
Cons: "Flight cast was reasonable, but baggage and carry on fees was DOUBLE the flight fair. Go figure?"
Pros: "Cheap fares. That's their draw. Not much else and by design"
Cons: "Seats don't recline, you have to pay for everything (which we don't to beat the system; I.e., we ack in a personal item, don't pick a seat, and do without beverage and snacks)"
Pros: "Flight was on time-staff was polite"
Cons: "You have to pay 45.00 for a checked bag and also have to pay if you have a carry on. so the cheap flight you book is not really that cheap"
Cons: "1st time flying Frontier in many years. Website early check in was a chore. $10 to select a seat, $40 / carry on, no reclining seats, no entertainment, no free drink / snacks service. This may be where the industry is heading, but not for us. Will not fly Frontier again."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They change my flights"
Pros: "Our flight had a medical emergency during the taxi to our runway which the crew handled extremely well. That emergency delayed our departure, but it was understandable. There was also a seating mix-up with a handicapped person sitting in an emergency exit who needed to be moved to a new seat. As part of the shuffle, I went from my preferred aisle seat to a middle seat. The flight attendant offered me snacks and beverages as compensation which was a nice gesture."
Cons: "Frontier can be a tricky airline to fly with. I have flown with them enough to know to pack light to avoid having a carry on other baggage. They also push their credit card deal pretty hard at the end of every flight which can be very annoying."
Pros: "Flights went fine."
Cons: "I will never choose to fly Frontier again. This was my first and last time. There is a fee for everything which makes the cost of flying with them significantly higher than quoted. I couldn't believe that you have to use a credit card to get a bottle of water or a small snack. If you don't check their website you can pay double to check in bags when you arrive. Not at all consumer friendly."
Pros: "The boarding process seemed to take less time compared to other airlines."
Cons: "There needs to be portable electronic chargers on the plane. It would definitely help to keep children entertained."
Cons: "The price of the trip does not include a carry one. This is difficult when all other airlines are not charging for a carryon. This increased the cost of my trip dramatically."
Cons: "They gave our captain to an Atlanta flight. We had to wait for another captain to get to DIA. Then we got loaded up and had to wait for the east gate to open, then they had to map out another plan I.e., the northeast gate (and that didn't materialize) soooo we sat on the plane until we receive the okay to depart on "the east gate". Which was approximately 21:30. We finally arrived at approximately 01:00 a little more than hour late. It took better than 30 minutes for us to get our luggage. Stupid crazy that a person is paying ridiculous prices for pitiful customer service."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Not even a soda or a cracker for free on a four hour flight. Straight back seats not comfortable, no leg room at all."
Cons: "Let's start with when this plane was supposed to land. I was supposed to get to Los Angeles at 6:30. Know what time it was when I walked into my house? One in the morning. I missed the last of the busses and had to take a $100 taxi ride home because Frontier couldn't keep it together and NO ONE knew what was going on. I might have felt a little better if they bribed away our anger at our obscene delay time with complimentary drinks or snacks but they still insisted upon tipping every passenger upside down to shake us down for the rest of our money even after making sure we all got screwed. Suffice it to say that I will pay hundreds of dollars to avoid Frontier at all costs in the future."
Pros: "The app was nice for quick boarding and the Atlanta crew from boarding to the flight was the best. Denver to Atlanta was not."
Cons: "Didn't like the hidden fees at checkin that took my ticket from $207 up to double that amount. I didn't budget for that and the other sites make you aware of there fee at the time of purchase not when you think you are about to board and leave on your flight."
Pros: "It was on time."
Cons: "The baggage fee was too high."
Pros: "Got me there inexpensively. Flight crew was professional and friendly."
Cons: "Small uncomfortable seats. Gate crew in Atlanta was not friendly or professional."
Pros: "Great price, got seat up front, what's to comppain about?"
Cons: "Nothing, it was fine."
Cons: "They overbooked the flight, so we were told to get there two hours early, 3:30am! So we wouldn't loose our seats. The plane wasn't even full. And security doesn't open until 4am. A bunch of BS. They charge for carry on. They charge for check in. They charge for your seat selection. They charge for any type of good or beverage on the plane. $2 just for a small cup of coffee. I am surprised they don't charge to use the restroom. All the money I thought I saved from flying Frontier was quickly used to pay all the extra fees."
Pros: "things went smoothly once the plane arrived and we were boarded"
Cons: "late flight, changed gate, name was screwed up on boarding pass (middle was part of first), a phone number that was not mine was in my phone info"
Pros: "Flight departed late but arrived early onto airport, which was great."
Cons: "When we arrived to the airport we were waiting for over 1 hour on the runway. Once we got to the gate, we then waited for our bags at the baggage claim for over 1 hour. We landed in SFO at 10:15, but didn't get our bags until 12:30"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Deceptive pricing practices. Hidden charges. The advertised price looks low but then they charge for carry on bags, seat selection, etc. I was surprised they didn't charge me for the glass of water. Of course you don't find out all this until it's time to check in. Also the seats were like metal folding chairs that you couldn't even recline at all."
Pros: "Frontier is a get what you pay for airline, no frills."
Cons: "The prices could be more reasonable for the things you have to pay for - luggage, food, drinks."
Pros: "Nothing!"
Cons: "My flight was cancelled."
Pros: "Every thing went smoothly."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The 28 hours in delays. Being kept in the dark about the problems."
Pros: "I didn't like anything."
Cons: "It was an hour late. The seats are completely uncomfortable and you get charged for water."
Pros: "Boarding was easy. On time departure and on time arrival."
Cons: "Short flight so no food or entertainment. Initially crew said would be coming with cart with complimentary beverages and then they said they weren't but you could buy items."
