It's pretty slow compared to a traditional database or something like Google Sheets
Airtable really needs to compete with Typeform on embeddable forms... the lack of input validation sucks!
It can get expensive real fast as you scale it to your entire company.
API has some strange decisions in it. Mainly that you can't reference a column by an internal ID and have to use the actual column name - very prone to error on large teams. Additionally there is no easy way to look up a record by a field value.
Overt focus on monetization, discourages me from building out more of my infrastructure in the platform due to future cost concerns
Airtable needs to come up with relational database across the bases. There is no way to connect data across the bases.
The number of records in the bases is limited to 5000 records in the basic plan.
The pricing for the Pro plan is prohibitively expensive for a mid-size company.
The user-based pricing can really hinder you from taking full advantage of the platform. Going from one plan to another to get more features can be a $200/mo decision when you have 20 light users.
Has a bit of a learning curve for some use cases, and you can't do EVERYTHING with keyboard shortcuts.
The inability to natively handle multi-page printing is one frustration with Airtable. The block system is limited, and basic blocks should be included in the free version. Airtable is overpriced, even for a small company.
