It's a fun little airline with great people and pretty impressive pilots. Sometimes the flight to Billings is quiet and uneventful and sometimes it's like being on a ride at the carnival. Passengers get great interaction with the pilot and I have never had a rude flight attendant on any of my many flights on Cape Air. We did have...

Cape Air is an "essential air service" provider operating out of Billings Montana to small remote airports in North East Montana. The flights are regular, with few delays and friendly pilots. Yes the planes are small, but for a quick jump to a connecting flight in Billings you can not beat the price.

We were planning a 3 day/3 night visit to New York City, initially intending to take the Dartmouth Coach from Lebanon, NH. Exploring our options, we realized that for a very little more, we could gain significant time in New York by flying. We flew from Lebanon to White Plains, then took the free shuttle to Penn Station (and back)....

First, I had an issue with this airline when I was flying into Sidney, MT and the man in front of me attempted to open the emergency exit mid flight. I attempted to get the pilots attention, but I was the only one who kept it from happening be swatting his hand away. He was using his cell phone for...

Both my flights to Ogdensburg and from Ogdensburg were cancelled. It was winter but the cancellations were not weather related. Bottom line I spent four hours in a van (cab) with three other passengers to get from Albany to Ogdensburg. Took a flight from Watertown when my flight out of Ogdensburg was cancelled. This resulted in hours on the road...

They knew well in advance that our flight of 8 passengers was going to be cancelled due to weather. They didn't contact us at all. EIGHT PASSENGERS. We learned by showing up for the flighy and being told it was off. Then, we got to STL faster i our car, and cheaper. Absolutely no reason to rely on these clowns...

We have flown Cape Air twice now from Boston to Rutland VT. I have to say the CAPE AIR in Rutland has always been professional and helpful.

I will say this was, by far, the worst experience I have ever had flying...and I fly frequently. Two flights cancelled with no notification. The desk work(Flora) in Boston has to be the rudest and most apathetic person I have ever dealt with in Customer Service. However, the only light on this mess was the Station Supervisor, Diane. She showed...
