We are so thankful that Elite Airways flies direct from Sarasota, Florida to Portland, Maine. This is the 2nd year we have flown Elite for a total of 12 round trips now . Not once have we had an issue...the planes are clean and comfortable, the flight attendants and pilots are friendly and courteous, flights are on time and sometimes...

16 of us flew from Melbourne to Bimini Bahamas. Our flight home from the island was changed 3 times and then cancelled completely leaving us stranded on the island. We received the cancellation email in the middle of the night right before we were supposed to leave. The locals said it happens often with Elite. We were also unable to...

We booked our one vacation a year, Sunday through Thursday because that is when the airline flies. Elite Airways sends an email after their business hours stating our flight was moved to a day later. No reason provided. Our hotel wont refund us our money. Thanks Elite for being cowards and letting an entire flight know after hours they don't...

I must start by thanking the wonderful crew and captain for their patience. A flight that should have gotten us nonstop to Vero Beach at 1:30 p.m. ; put us in VB at 6:30 p.m. the Elite website mistakenly shows the plane arrived to VB at 3:46p.m. This nonstop flight became a one stop in Asheville NC flight. The plane...

I’ve read all the scary reviews on here, which honestly does give me a lot of pause for using this airline because I know you’re taking a big risk with the amount of flights that they have and their on-time track record. But I have to say that in my experience, everything went fine and it was really convenient, and...

Open letter to Elite Airways: You need to respond to your passengers and try and resolve issues. Mr. Pearsall, the CEO of the airline, has ignored my emails, and the airline itself has not responded to my Trip Advisor review. I WANT MY MONEY BACK THAT YOU CAUSED ME TO SPEND, BY NOT MAINTAINING YOUR SCHEDULED FLIGHT!

I was due to fly home from Vero to Asheville. I received a call 2hrs before my flight was due to depart to say it had been cancelled due to “weather”. At the time the flight was cancelled there was no rain or wind in Vero Beach. No other flights in the area (West Palm/Orlando) going in the same direction...
