Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Crew was above and beyond. Really helpful and kind."
Cons: "Not delay the flight causing me to not have enough time to connect In Frankfurt."
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Short trip , WiFi was out but not an issue. Again I was so pleased not to have to climb narrow stairs to board. It was excellent and glad to be home. Maybe some peanuts."
Pros: "Gateway clean. Wheelchair assistance was helpful, and friendly Flight attendants were courteous"
Cons: "- Tiny bag of pretzels seems cheap for a $600+ ticket. - HATE, HATE, HATE the charges for the first and second checked baggages!! I stopped using UA over 7 years ago because of these charges that came when gas prices were high and never went away. Always use Southwest whenever possible. Cheaper!"
Pros: "Efficient boarding."
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "N/a"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The fact my luggage didn’t arrive with me in Detroit and that we were 30 min late and couldn’t get off the plane because of lighting like come on!!"
Pros: "Boarding was quick and the crew was attentive"
Cons: "The flight left an hour late. When arrived in Detroit the ground crew left our bags on the plane. It took over another hour to figure out what happened. The attendant was not on duty."
Cons: "No food provided"
Pros: "Flight was short so I I did not get too involved with crew, men had smiles and hellos not so with females. Maybe they get too much stuff from other passengers but I was a little surprised by it. I haven't flown in quite a while but I don't remember that bad attitude. Drink service was good with snacks."
Cons: "There was no food, entertainment and seats are not that comfortable for a person with back problems. Female flight attendants are not so much in the friendly skies"
Pros: "Flight crew was polite"
Cons: "Took forever to board and exit the plane"
Pros: "The staff was very nice and the flight was smooth."
Cons: "Ok we have two units at Crescent apartments to clean so please meet us there."
Pros: "Excellent!"
Cons: "Excellent!"
Pros: "Flight was timely"
Cons: "Staff was extremely rude"
Cons: "They took so long to open the doors almost mis my connecting flight"
Pros: "United did a great job keeping us informed of where the plane was and why we were being delayed. Only 15 minutes late. But staff explained why and I think this helps ease people's anxiety. Inflight wifi was awesome!"
Pros: "We were told that this was due to the weather at destination ( Newark) but the weather in Newark was fine. Hence, not sure if it is the airline ( United) or the air traffic controllers that caused the delay. United blamed the controllers. The Captain was very courteous apologizing many times for the delay ."
Pros: "Good crew."
Cons: "Late"
Pros: "I liked that I finally made it home despite all the drama."
Cons: "I didn't like that I booked a flight nearly 2 months ago to only find out I didn't have a seat. I do understand its legal but I don't get how you are putting customers first by causing this drama. I understand how that DR felt when your guards ripped him out of his seat. I spent nearly 3 hours trying to find babysitters and alternate rides all while the snotty lady at the desk kept saying "you may not be flying out today but I cant tell you for sure". So to insure the bottom line you overbook then bump people at your leisure? This little game effects many lives above and beyond just the passengers. I don't plan on booking with United ever again. Why would I? There are many other options that take customer service more seriously. I would love to speak to someone higher up in this organization. But, im sure that will never happen."
Pros: "The flight was smooth"
Cons: "The flight didn't offer PDE"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "It was not a good experience at all. Honestly, I wanted my money back. I sent United this letter, but no one is gotten back to me yet. Hello, my name is David Larkins. I have had literally the worst airline experience of my life today with United airlines. With confirmation number BS2EL9, my flight was set to go from Atlanta to Burbank, with a connection in San Francisco. The flight from Atlanta was delayed about 10 minutes, however, they assured us that we would arrive in San Francisco at the correct time of 9:39 AM with enough time to get to our connecting flights. They lied. Whereas we did arrive in San Francisco at around 9:39 AM, the plane taxied for approximately 15 or more minutes before letting anyone off of the plane. Still, I ran to my connecting flight before it left the runway at 10:10am. However, I was not permitted to step onto the plane by the fellow at the gate at the time. He told me that because boarding time was over at 9:55a, he would not let me step on the plane even though it was still on the runway. I was upset. I went to customer service and explained my situation to them. Speaking with a girl named Krystin S., I explained that I really needed to get to Burbank on time, before 2 o'clock. Today, I had a final for school, a meeting, and interview with a job, and I had to drop my dog off at the vet for an appointment which costed around $150. Krystin told me that there was nothing she could do, and offered me only a meal voucher. I was offended, and declined the voucher. I then spoke to customer service and they told me there was nothing they could do after informing me that the flight that they switched my flight to was delayed yet another hour and I would not arrive until 350pm. This is absolutely unacceptable, and I need a remedy. Far larger than a simple meal voucher. I have lost more money by missing my flight to Burbank because of the Atlanta airport lying to me then the flight was even worth. Also, I requested to speak to someone, but the representative on the phone said they didn't have a phone number to speak to anyone which adds to the cumbersome nature of this issue. Please contact me back, as soon as possible. I'm very upset at the situation. David Larkins"
Pros: "Pleasant"
Cons: "Small snack"
Pros: "Everyone working the flight was wonderful"
Cons: "United, once again, was late and delayed."
Pros: "Very uneventful, which is provably a good thing when you just want to get to where you want to be. Service wa excellent."
Cons: "Everything for a fee."
Pros: "Comfy and we always fly united. Great experience"
Cons: "On the way back we had turbulence but that isn't anyone's fault."
Pros: "crew was mostly friendly"
Cons: "my flight was delayed 3. 5 hours... we boarded and we had to deplane. I'm still in the terminal with no clear indication of when I will be able to go home I might be more understanding but, my flight here was also delayed 4 hours"
Pros: "This regional airplane was extremely comfortable! The flight was comfortable and the crew was very helpful."
Cons: "I wasn't too excited that the in-flight entertainment quit working about five hours in, but the crew did their best to remedy the situation."
Cons: "My flight was cancelled after being delayed a few times. I was offered to be on standby on flights that's were overbooked the next day. The closest airport was 2 hours away with a different airline."
Cons: "The staff member in the boarding gate was very unorganised she was announcing incorrectly two times , which make the passengers confused. Leg room inside the flight was to tight."
Pros: "I appreciated the seat assigned to me was directly behind first class; gave me more leg room."
Pros: "It got to me to Atlanta fine. But going back to Newark was a nightmare."
Cons: "When I checked in at Newark, I upgraded my seat from 22 B to 7B for $55. I also paid $25 for my small piece of luggage. I was told there may be a lot of suitcases and it was better to check it. When on the plane, a stewardess came up to me and asked to see my boarding pass (which was scanned when I got onto the plane.) I gave it to her and she never returned it to me. I get an EMAIL while in Atlanta, saying my seat on the flight was canceled because I was a NO SHOW on the 27th to go down to Atlanta. I had the receipt of my seat upgrade, my receipt for the checked luggage, and the tag on the luggage. I called United who said I wasn't on the plane. After a long conversation, she said she fixed it. I get to the Atlanta airport on 10/31, and I was not in the system. I had to get a supervisor and they said my seat was gone and I may not be able to get back to NJ that day. After the agent called United Headquarters, they finally got me on the plane. I was told once again I should check my luggage and shelled out another $25. I then get to the gate, and the agent at the gate was asking for 10-20 people to check their luggage for FREE. That was it for me. I will not fly United again, and have already requested that my Executive Admin's not use United and use other airlines when they book business trips because I would hate for anyone to have to go through what I did. I am 44, have been flying since I was 5, and have never had anything like this happen and don't want it to happen to anyone else I know. I was disgusted by the whole situation."
Pros: "Flight was on time departing and very early for arrival."
Cons: "Boarding agents and cabin crew didn't convey a friendly tone. Multiple announcements made about keeping the boarding lanes clear and roller bags needing to be checked though some space in the overheads remained available. A full flight in the same plane from Denver seems to have plenty of overhead space, but a full plane leaving Atlanta runs out early?"
Cons: "In general, all the crew and counter people are not able to say "good morning" or smile, besides a delayed flight made a really bad experience"
Pros: "On time, even arrived early. Nice, clean plane. Good experience."
Pros: "The people were friendly and everything went smoothly even with a little computer malfunction they got us in the air on time. Thoroughly enjoyed the the experience."
Cons: "We had no complaints."
Cons: "I was put on wrong flight and arrived 4 hours after scheduled landing."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed so our connecting flight was cancelled what a terrible experience."
Pros: "Very little"
Cons: "The flight attendant at the door when boarding didn't smile or say anything to me, I was the one that greeted her!! Plus she was the same the whole flight like she had somewhere better to be!!"
Pros: "Organized boarding"
Cons: "Did not allow our emotional support dog with the letter our doctor had written. Was told it needed his license number. It is no longer required! The letter is good with 2 other airlines which we travel on frequently."
Pros: "Getting home finally"
Cons: "Miscommunication with customer service regarding stand by flights, representatives were extremely rude, spent 7 hrs at airport during departure and 7 at airport during arrival, constant gate changes and that's just to say the least"
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "The whole services!"
Cons: "Not enough space to sit at the gate. There's been a trend lately to start checking all carry on bags due to space, but then you get on the plane and there's PLENTY of overhead space for your carry on."
Pros: "The boarding process was very simple and the crew was friendly."
Cons: "There are great entertainment options for in flight viewing, but there is no warning ahead of time that additional applications have to be downloaded in order to use them. At 30,000 feet it is impossible without paying for wifi. Also, I was actually looking forward to the little snack sized peanuts. Instead, you're given a salty trail mixed something that's seasoned very heavily. It just made me want to sneak water from the drink cart rather than curbing my hunger."
Cons: "I had asked for help for when we landed in Houston to get to my conecting flight. The attendant was nice enought to arrange it, but when we landed and I introduced myself to the person with the wheelchair, he made me feel bad enough to walk to my conecting flight. Anyone traveling, paying for the services of the airlines should not be mafe to feel ashamed to ask for help."
Pros: "The crew was very informing and they fly attendants were very polite"
Cons: "Once we arrived Ohara airport this went from bad to worse. The plane arrived late and the we sat in the airplane for over 2hours because of repairs being made. I feel like the crew cold have been more forthcoming about what was happening it took at least .30min before we were told anything. After sitting on the plane for over 1 hours they finally move us to a new plane to board all over again it was very unorganized ."
Pros: "Great ticket price, friendly staff, relaxing flight, clean plane, fast travel time, smooth landing, free snacks n drinks"
Cons: "Food & drink on plane is expensive. No free tv/movie offers on plane"
Pros: "The flight crew was nice"

Passengers were my only help and you need to hire more agents.

Pros: "The Crew"
Cons: "It was a passenger on the plane acting real suspicious. I didn’t like that. Also the seats was uncomfortable."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Extremely high charge for carry-on baggage, extremely high charge for changing flight times, no beverage service, seats are very small with no iPhone charger available."
Pros: "Price on the flight to ket"
Cons: "Sits are really uncomfortable, staff wasn't courteous and boarding process was a mess"
Pros: "Flight to attendants were very good."
Cons: "By the time I had added my bags, selected my seats I may as well have gone on another airline that didn’t nickel and dime you go food and drink. Will not do it again or my wife, advertise as a low cost airline but it most certainly is not."
Pros: "The crew is really nice, attentive, and it's not hard to get their attention. They also don't bother you when you sleep and are overall quiet and courteous."
Cons: "Not knowing how long until we land. A quick "1 hour till arrival . . . 30min..." would have been appreciated."
Pros: "The flight from San Diego to Denver was great, the members of the crew were very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The flight from Denver to Detroit was extremely late causing a huge delay in the entire process. Once we finally got ready to takeoff, we had to pull in yet again because there were passengers on the plan that weren't scheduled to go to Detroit.. all of these problems are somewhat understandable, but the crew FAILED TO EMPATHIZE WITH US AT ALL. They even made smart remarks about people going to the bathroom when we pulled back in... I feel some of them acted extremely unprofessional and I truly never want to fly with this company again."
Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "Pilot didn't show and he airline gave poor reasons why."
Cons: "There were no snacks, not one drink was free, and the seats did not even recline. I will not be purchasing any further trips with Frontier no matter the price."
Pros: "Price of flight"
Cons: "Freezing cold, food selections, price of food for quantity you get, no blankets, leg space horrible, charging for upgraded leg room seats when seats were open, only giving ppl 30 seconds to move to a an empty free seat at no chrg, plane was not clean at all in bathrooms-disgusting: walls filthy, counters dirty and grimy, door & floors filthy, soap dispenser unsanitary, crew comments|conversations about travelers, should start boarding from the bk of the plane forward"
Pros: "Good flight crew, courteous. You don't pay for what you don't need."
Cons: "The cost to check baggage, why not have 1 free bag, either checked or carryon. Not even peanuts to snack on unless you pay an absorbent price."
Cons: "EVERYTHING is an add on!!! Ticket price might be cheaper when you price check ....but by time you add on all the add ons your ticket price is NOT the best price. Won't fly Frontier again."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Plane was delayed two hours, then we sat on the plane for another hour all for a one hour flight. There were maintenance issues and things done wrong on the plane. There was no incentive or even snack to help the customers get through the three hours."
Pros: "Price was good, flight crew were very friendly and professional"
Cons: "Seats didn't recline."
Pros: "Friendly and efficient staff, perfect landing!"
Cons: "There was no in flight entertainment."
Cons: "I don't like how you have to pay for Your first checked bag"
Pros: "The crew was nice and plane was clean"
Cons: "The seating was very narrow and uncomfortable. It felt like you were sitting on a stadium seat. Also, please provide ALL info regarding EXTRA CHARGES. I was NOT pleased to find out I had to pay an extra $40/45 for carry-ons and checked bags upon check in."
Pros: "Cheap flight!"
Cons: "Maintenance issues on the ground, so didn't leave the airport for an hour and a half. Then due to wind conditions, stranded in the air for another hour. Missed a meeting I was supposed to be at. UGH all around"
Pros: "went from point A to point B, that's what I paid for and that's what I got"
Cons: "seats were uncomfortable but what can you do"
Pros: "They maid up 30min air time to accommodate the delay"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 1hr and 30min, because co-pilot was pulled to another flight! The person next to me was so big that he was pushing on me the whole flight, he should have been made a purchase a extra seat!"
Cons: "The phone service said the flight was in time as scheduled, the app said it was cancelled...Worst service ever."
Cons: "The flight was first cancelled, then I had to wait two days for the next available flight out. Also was charged for my carry on bag. This airline does not offer any complimentary drinks. I will not book this company again, you think your saving a little and end up spending More at the end."
Pros: "Nice crew. Plane clean."
Cons: "On this long flight from Atlanta to San Francisco, a reclining seat would have been nice."
Pros: "We landed early both ways."
Cons: "Flight attendants talked too fast."
Cons: "There was an accident that prevented me from arriving at the airport the recommended 2 hours prior to boarding. Anyway I managed to get there a whole 30 minutes in advance but the people didn't even try to let me get through ..they just said No and that was that."
Pros: "You've got to be kidding me......"
Cons: "-a simple bag drop off was over an hour. It cost us only $30 for that. -no customer service to address the long wait times. No corporate emails or phone contacts. This means that they don't want to take complaints. Ps- there were 250 people in line...I counted 9 people calling customer service. I don't think any of them were success. -none of the kiosks were working at phx. I thought we were in the 21st century. -seats do not recline. Seats are uncomfortable. Food tray is tiny. And I do mean tiny. No water or soda or anything without paying for it. That's a bit unrealistic for a cross country flight. -Fees! For food, drinks, stowed baggage, carry-on baggage (what?), choosing a seat assignment (and I do mean any seat assignment ) -Frontier will never see this because they do not deal with complaints. Ps-I wasn't able to respond via Twitter. I didn't know if my cell phone was an issue or if Frontier blocked twitter feedback."
Cons: "There were extra charges for the seat and my carry on. I will never fly Frontier again. No one likes hidden fees. What good is paying for a ticket if it doesn't even include the cost of a seat?"
Pros: "Everyone was nice and polite from Frontier."
Cons: "A lot of turbulence on both flights when landing. Small plane problems?"
Cons: "We are on delta because we got to frontier line 1 hour and 15 min before flight. Lady proceeds to tell us are gate is closed and we can't get on plane and then ignored us with no answers or help. Proceeded to ask other employees and they were all clueless. The worst service my wife and I have ever seen or had. $616 later we are on are way home .with delta. Ruined are whole vacay and I would pay extra to go with delta."
Pros: "At least the flight didn't cancel"
Cons: "Massive delay"
Pros: "I had neve flown Frontier before. The boarding experience was orderly, fast & efficient."
Cons: "There was no free wifi"
Pros: "The cheap flight. Smiley crew"
Cons: "The extra cost for seats and the overall situation about this airline no recline seat? Oh well."
Pros: "The flight was nice and I left and arrived on time."
Cons: "Something that I didn't like was, the fact that when I left Phoenix on frontier I didn't know that I had to pay $60. for a carry on that fit in the over head compartment until I was about to board the plane. That's when they announced it and there were a lot of surprised passengers."
Pros: "The flight itself was fine"
Cons: "The fact that you have to pay for a bag that you are carrying on the plane and putting in the overhead bin. They charged $40.00 for my overhead compartment bag. I had one personal bag and one bag that went in the overhead compartment and they still charged $40.00!!! You also have to pay for any 'snacks' or 'drinks' on the flight. Needless to say, I will not be flying with Frontier again."
Pros: "The flight attendants"
Cons: "The screaming kids and babies"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by an hour but there was no announcement made"
Pros: "Boarding was organized and the flight was on time for boarding, takeoff and arrival at the destination gate."
Cons: "The seats are well-shiort of luxurious, and there is no beverage service or entertainment. Also, you have to pay for both carry-on and checked luggage. I guess these are all things you should expect from a discount airline."
Cons: "We were stuck on the runway for over an hour after we landed and getting our luggage was a DISASTER. They changed the location of our baggage claim carousel with minimal notice, only to change it back to the original carousel with NO NOTICE. It took over an hour again for our luggage to come out and it trickled in so slowly, that I ended up getting my bag a full two and a half hours after we landed. Awful experience."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very nice."
Cons: "I have nothing bad to say."
Cons: "Flight was five hours late due to maintenance problem. This could happen to any airline, but is apparently not at all unusual for Frontier. They did give vouchers for dinner at the airport, but continued to charge for even water once on the plane. Frontier prices are good, but not worth the hassle to me. I will choose Delta or American next time."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Seats hard plastic and inhumanly closed together. Tray tables smaller than a car's sunvisor. I think Frontier should be called the Middle Passage airlines for how they pack us in. They make you pay for luggage, improved seat size, location, food and then ask you to tip your cranky flight attendant whom they seem to screen and select the most misanthropic applicants they can find. And then they try to sell you their credit card with a $69 annual fee. I watched and there where no takers."
Pros: "The flight itself was rather cheap. You're not going to beat $40 buck."
Cons: "I didn't like, however, that they never mention that any additional bag is another $45 dollars. I ended up spending around $120 dollars."
Cons: "the seats do not recline the 40.00 checked bag fee is over priced the seat up grades with no description on why, or what the upgrades are"
Pros: "Flight attendant Mary did her best to make up for the flights short comings. She was pleasant, cheerful and understood she didn't have much to work with."
Cons: "The agents at the ticket counter as well as those boarding the flight wee very unprofessional. They should be working cleaning bathrooms instead of interacting with the public. There was a manager present who acted more like a monitor than a manager. eventhough I have a return ticket, I will not use it and prefer to purchase a ticket on another airline. You can keep the money. I wouldn't subject a mango dog to your airline and service."
Pros: "Price was good"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The price was unbeatable, as I was only doing a day trip over a short distance."
Cons: "I'm glad that it was a short distance, after I got on the plan and saw what must be some of the thinnest seats in the industry, which I have not scientifically evaluated, but, I do feel free to express my opinion. I would not have liked sitting in this seat for a longer flight. Also, the smallest tabletop I've ever seen would not have been suitable if I had decided to open up my full-size laptop for use."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight cancelled 10 minutes before boarding on last flight of the day. Next available flight was four days later! I had to take a refund and buy a ticket for the next day on another airline. From now on I'll just buy my ticket on another airline to start with and save the trouble or wasting my time with this airline."
Cons: "rough landing"
Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "It was rather like a city bus-- no amenities, nothing I would feed a wild raccoon, cramped, tight and generally unpleasant.A charge for a carry on?!? Really?"
Pros: "I loved the gate agent. She gave me a row of seats to myself. I also loved the flight attendants. They were very courteous, friendly and professional. The pitch between the seats were decent. They definitely respect the passenger and provide excellent pricing. I traveled without bags or personal item. I understood exactly what I was doing. Going to Vegas for 24 hours for next to nothing."
Cons: "I felt the snacks were overpriced. It was kind of funny seeing the flight attendants use debit or credit cards for each item on their cart."
Cons: "We had the best flight attendant, Nina. She seemed to enjoy her job so much that I couldn’t help but to feel as if Spirit has to be an excellent place to work."
Pros: "Some of the staff members were friendly."
Cons: "Flights were not on time and cancelled. We ended up not traveling at all due to the issues with the airline."
Pros: "Crew was very kind."
Cons: "Well..."
Pros: "The safe travel back home"
Cons: "Didn't like that we had to wait forever until our plane comes"
Cons: "Comfortable and quick"
Cons: "Baggage costs are robbery"
Pros: "It was a smooth flight"
Cons: "My flight was suppose to leave at 4:15 got delayed until 5:15 but didn't take off until 6pm The luggage prices...Being charged for a carry on!!"
Cons: "missed my exit was 5 minutes late for check in they would not let me on flight had to wait for next flight. I even watched them load the flight but had to wait due to 5 min."
Pros: "We wont be flying with Spirit again."
Pros: "do not trust"
Cons: "rerouting and delays, families separated due to airline-centric inefficiencies."
Cons: "They cancelled my inbound"
Cons: "Due to delays in security, I arrived 23 minutes before departure time. I was told that I could. It board and had been removed from manifold as is policy 20 min before departure time. When I noted I had 3 minutes as per their own policy I was in no way accommodated. Will not fly Spirit again."
Pros: "Overall goos flight captain made up for late boarding time"
Cons: "Plane should be boarded by seat positions"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They allocated me with american airlines for an already cancelled flight and did not take any repsonsibility further. I ended up waiting in the airport for 14 hours to get my next flight. No accommodation was provided."
Pros: "NOTHING. IT NEVER HAPPENED!"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled on short notice and I lost a lot of money in addition to the cost of this trip."
Pros: "Price"
Cons: "Unfomortable seats Wobbly landing"
Cons: "After paying $50 for my checked piece of luggage, Spirit employees decided to leave it in Atlanta. I was offered nothing to make it right, except that they would deliver it to me once it arrived the next day. Probably the last time I fly Spirit."
Pros: "Smooth very comfortable flight from Atlanta to Detroit"
Pros: "Coming home the flight was much better"
Pros: "For a quick trip without any luggage, this low-budget airlines did save some money."
Cons: "Everything was a la carte to include $2 for sofas and $30-50 for a overhead carry on. I would not use this airline unless I'm traveling for a specific short trip with no luggage"
Pros: "Absolutely NOTHING"
Cons: "They were deceitful about baggage allowed so I ended up paying an extra $150 t only to find out I didn't need to pay for 2 bags and could not get a refund. The counter people were worthless, rude and could care less about anything. The flight was 2+ hours late because crew members were late. I will never fly Spirit again"
Pros: "Delayed by 13 hours"
Pros: "THERE WAS NOTHING THAT WE LIKED!!!"
Cons: "There was no communication about gate change and time change. We happened to hear it second hand from the crowd. We did not get notification about this change until after we landed in Detroit through email. After we landed in Detroit they lost half the planes luggage and it took them over an hour to find everyone's luggage. I will NEVER fly Spirit again and most everyone else on that plane said they would never fly Spirit again!"
Cons: "We were delayed for 5 hours !!!!!"
Pros: "Flight finally departed 6 hours late"
Cons: "Everything,I deserve my money back."
Pros: "FLIGHT ON TIME COURTESY STAFF"
Cons: "THE BAGGAGE FEE FOR CARRY on"
Pros: "The crew was phenomenal with a medical emergency that was happening on our flight. Seating get space, HORRIBLE !"
Cons: "All the extra fees that add up.Never flying spirit again"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by an hour. No communication was given as to why or that flight would even be delayed."
Pros: "The crew was so warm and accommodating! Very friendly. I had an entire row to myself!"
Pros: "Flight was ok"
Cons: "Charges for baggage and snacks are excessive. Fees for a printed boarding pass also ridiculous Flight was cancelled and Spirit did not even help to get on another. I had to to cancel and have yet to receive my refund. Will never fly with them again"
Cons: "Not only was my flight cancelled, but they were trying to reschedule me through Ft. Lauderdale, an airport that was closed, and also asked me to drive to Chicago for a departure - 5 hours drive. Lesson learned - I will never book a flight with Spirit again."
Pros: "On time and the crew was courteous."
Cons: "The seats are too close together for a person with long legs. On this survey there should be a way to choose N/A for food and entertainment"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Seats are tight."
Pros: "Price lay over , bathroom out of service, boarding very slow"
Cons: "have to pay for soda & snack!!! $3 for can of coke!! seriously people I can purchase full 20oz bottle for less than $3 out of airport vending machine $55 for claimed bag highway robbery!!"
Pros: "The seats and being comfortable"
Cons: "There was nothing i didn't like."
Pros: "Cheap is good"
Cons: "3 inch back seat tables are a little small"
Pros: "The supervisor apologizing for Karen at the front desk at the airport."
Cons: "Karen was the RUDEST service I have ever gotten ever. I have been telling everyone about how rude your guys' employees are. There was even another lady at the airport working saying how all spirit respresentatives are rude. Karen was mocking my boyfriend and I, not only was I embarassed in front of him. But also embarassed in front of all the other people waiting in line. She made it seem like we were so dumb for not having our IDs out right away. We were in a rush in the first place and for one of your representatives to literally mock me before I even said one word to her is ridiculous. She was the Detroit workers by the way."
Pros: "I have had horrific Spirit Airlines flights in the past, I mean total nightmares where you want to call the FAA and promise yourself and others to never flight Spirit again. As a matter of fact before I even booked my first Spirit flight I was warned by colleagues and friends not to use the airline. So relatively speaking this flight was drama free, boarding went fine, flight was not full so it was comfortable, took off on time and was actually early arriving into Detroit. It may have been a fluke, but I was really surprised and how well it wnet, which is why I am responding to this survey."
Cons: "4 hour delay with no explanation. Updates changed about 5 times on the delay. Absolutely ridiculous and I had to take another day off of work because of this. Spending 6 hours in an airport and spent over $20 on drinks and food when I didn't need to. Also not enough plugs in waiting area to charge devices."
Pros: "How you made us wait over four hours. I could have swam there faster."
Cons: "Everything. Crew. Plane. Delay. I was freezing the whole time."
Cons: "No refreshments. Crew was not professional."
Pros: "Nice crew. Flight was ahead of time. Overall pretty good airline to fly with. Its cheap and afforable."
Pros: "The staff was friendly and helpful- especially at the FAST BAG DROP."
Cons: "Being nickeled and dimed to death!"
Pros: "It is a simpler approach"
Cons: "Flight delays are too long"
Pros: "I had very good seats towards the front."
Cons: "1st flight of the weekend was late"
Pros: "Staff was kind given the circumstances."
Cons: "2 hour delay from engine and AC that can't start on their own, wedged between two enormous humans with no AC, while hot with no AC on super cramped plane- no free water. Very loud broken hydronic wing testing noises."
Pros: "The gate staff and air crews were friendly and even comedic. But, they need to be to make up for the airline in general."
Cons: "I took Spirit to Florida because my mother had suffered a stroke. I went from Detroit to Tampa with a layover in Atlanta. The flight crew was an hour late and Atlanta and when we finally boarded, another passenger was assigned the same seat. I ended up waiting until we found an empty seat. The seats are cramped with not much leg room. The next morning when I woke up I had an email from the third party that I purchased my ticket through that Spirit had cancelled my return flight reservation because they said that I had never arrived for my flight from Detroit. Since I was without computer, my husband back in Michigan spent an entire morning trying to resolve the issue. No one seemed to even want to find out what happened and he was told that I had to buy another ticket or I could go to the ticket counter with my boarding passes and argue with them there. He finally found contact information for someone higher up and we received a response from customer service. It took Spirit a total of four days until they came through and I was able to leave the next day. I was given a voucher for $50 towards another flight that has to be used by May 20 or I loose it. Needless to say, I am not impressed with Spirit. There was a complete lack of effort from most of their people to even try to help me. Every thing costs. If you want a seat with sufficient leg room, you pay. If you don't you want to be squished in next to your fellow passenger, you pay. If you want a carry on piece larger than a purse, you pay. If you want a pop on the fligh, you pay. By the time you pay for everything that you would have received on another airline, the price is essentially the same. With all the issues that I was dealing with related to my mother, I just didn't need to deal with what was their error and them not taking responsibility for it even claiming that there was no proof that I wasn't on the outbound flight even though I somehow got to Florida. Needless to say Spirit will be my last choice for an airline in the future."
Cons: "My son arrived 40 minutes prior to his flight time yet he was denied boarding. Why, because for some absolutely ridiculous reason Spirit boards 45 minutes prior to take off. Even more ridiculous there was not another flight from the Major hub of Atlanta to another Major city, Detroit til the next day. This nonsense is what began my son's Spring Break. I'm hurt and very disappointed"
