USER BEWARE!!!! I booked a flight on Cape Air (Hahn Air) to locations that were devistated by hurricane Irma and Juan. Even w that, Cape Air did not provide a refund. I get very discouraged when companies care more about the almighty dollar than the customer!

Ticket agt suggested I let 3 people on before me, so I didn't get the seat behind pilot..good call. It was very noisy, on return trip I brought ear plugs. Flight up great, coming back a little rough on entering Boston...did not know planes could fly on an angle and still land! It was super cold and I am sure...

We live far away from any major airport, so when the Cape air commuters flight was started it made winter travel easy. It’s much safer to fly,then drive to Boston. The flight was on time, polite staff, no problems. Cost was great.

Our September 2017 flight from ACK to Boston Logan was cancelled due to fog. We are still waiting, over 3 months later for our $600 refund from Cape Air!!! They never return our calls or e-mails! These guys are crooks! Kinda doubt Cape Air is financially viable--probably doesn't bode well for their aircraft maintenance either! We'd just like the $600...

Great little plane for the short flight. Don't need rental car to get from Portland or Boston. The staff is super ,nice little gourmet restaurant on the premises while you wait for take off time. Reasonable prices for food and flight . 79. from Boston to Rockland, can't get an uber for that or a rental. Love it.

Both of my flights were cancelled! Couldn't even get on this plane. Resulting in missed flights and hundreds of dollars spent.

We've traveled Cape Air many times mostly from Massena, NY to Boston via Albany, NY. This time we flew from Saranac Lake which is 1 1/2 to 2 hour straight flight. It's a nice small airline, fair prices, older fleet, and a plethora of pilots. The worse part of any flight is getting placed behind the pilot seats (second row)....

We flew in a 9 person prop plane from Ogdensburg to Albany and then the same plane to Boston. There were some severe turbulence but the pilot handled it well and all 4 landings were perfect.

Flew from Beef Island (Tortola) to Puerto Rico a few weeks ago. A bit unnerving when they ask you you're body weight at check-in, but I knew this would be small plane. Flight was on-time and no issues, very pleased with the convenience compared to taking a water taxi to a larger island, and great views.
