Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews

Pros: "Did a good job despite the weather during the flight"
Cons: "Value for the price."
Cons: "The crew"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Almost everything. The flight boarded late but quickly. We sat on the runway for hours. We were VERY delayed for RDU arrival. Luggage was slow in getting to baggage claim. Not enough help with baggage was available."
Pros: "Food and service was nice"
Cons: "Very long route to my final destination"
Pros: "Nothing.. the entire experience was horrible. Nasty seat. Had to get rebooked 3 times to finally get home but had to fly into a different airport and you also lost my bag so I have nothing to wear to my father's funeral."
Cons: "Everyrhing. the entire experience was horrible. Nasty seat. Had to get rebooked 3 times to finally get home but had to fly into a different airport and you also lost my bag so I have nothing to wear to my father's funeral"
Pros: "Clean bathrooms and great refreshment choices"
Pros: "I love it when there is a TV screen at my seat."
Pros: "We got home"
Cons: "Delayed. 1 hour delay they said. Gate change from d41 to d6. Went to grab some food during delay and then they started boarding about 950 and we were last call to board. Once on board they then had to fuel the plane and get it ready for flight that was another twenty minutes Finally in the air about 1045 Frustrating. I don’t know why we boarded with plane not ready to fly"
Cons: "1/12 hours late had to change out equipment"
Cons: "The leg from Atlanta to Pointe de Pitre had no wifi or even old style entertainment. Bring a book!"
Pros: "Complimentary upgrade"
Cons: "My seat was in the last row on an MD88 where the engines are in the tail fin. Felt like I had a washing machine with a bag of rocks in it next to my head the whole flight. The intercom system also had a gnarly hum/screech when the attendants we're talking so you could barely hear them."
Pros: "see aqbove"
Cons: "see above"
Cons: "Flight crew"
Cons: "The flight was delayed just as we were about to board at 5:30. There was a mechanical problem and we were changed to another plane and another gate, which was supposed to take off at 6:30. It was boarded and ready to go around 7:00. Then....we taxied down the runway only to stop because of a situation on THIS plane (a light that did not go off). It was fixed pretty quickly and meanwhile a rep. from Delta boarded the plane, apologizing for our inconvenience and handed out Jolly Ranchers. REALLY? After that, she and the flight attendants did give us a free drink/headset coupon. That would have been nice but it expires Dec. 2017 and the flight attendant stopped serving drinks about half way down the aisle because the flight was so short. The coupon will be of no use to me. I finally got to Raleigh about 9:30...I booked the flight so I wouldn't have to drive at night.. Sigh....Delta used to be my favorite airline."
Pros: "Got there before ETA"
Cons: "Concourse was VERY FAR away and trains were not running☹️"
Pros: "Staff were great.. landed smoothly"
Pros: "Whereas our flight out from Raleigh to JFK where everything that could possibly go wrong did(late crew, boarding computer problem, mechanical issues with the plane, gate problems, missed connection) this last leg of our trip back was flawless. Everything was on time, and the crew was friendly and attentive. We had exit row seats so the leg room for this 90 minute flight was great compared to our first part (London-Atlanta)"
Pros: "The Delta crew on the flight was wonderful - but the crew at ATL really shined. A huge amount of people for connections arrived at the same time and needed to get through customs and the staff were very calm and efficient in directing everyone and making sure the line moved."
Cons: "The new boarding pillars with Priority, Sky, Zone 1, Zone 2, etc was a mess. In concept it should be a good process, but it was just a sea of people asking each other which boarding group they were in. Going back to asking those who are in a particular boarding zone to form a line and doing so each zone at a time seems like a smoother process."
Pros: "Extremely uncomfortable the entire flight. Seats too close together, then when you recline you hit the person behind you."
Cons: "Good tv shows, friendly attendants"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and accommodating, and service was good"
Cons: "I purchased a basic economy ticket and upon checking in, my Delta app said my seat was unassigned and I had to get my boarding pass at the airport. I checked back later and the app had me as number 7 on the standby list. I called Delta (wait time 3+ hours... my flight was in 3), and then the Delta app support where I was able to get through to someone. She told me that the ticket I purchased over a month in advance did not guarantee me a seat on the plane (???). She said that if I was bumped from the flight they would reschedule me for the next morning. She was pretty rude and made it seem like I had a 50/50 shot of getting on this plane. I rushed to the airport in hopes that I would be the first from Standby there, and the gate agent told me that I was fine and would board right after first class and be assigned a seat then. Great. Once I got my seat assignment, I board to find out there is someone else sitting in my seat...... They eventually called the desk and had her moved, but it was the weirdest boarding experience I've had.. and I've flown Spirit. These planes that Delta fly's are SO OLD. Both times I have flown Delta the "turbulence" has been so bad and cold air was blowing right on my the whole flight with no option to turn it off (it wasn't from one of the vents, but from the side). Someone close to me works for Delta and I know for a fact that some of their engines blow mid-flight.. and they tell the passengers that it's turbulence.. so that doesn't make me feel very safe. I won't fly Delta again if there is another comparable option."
Pros: "Great helpful happy staff, made you feel welcome. Good atmosphere and peaceful. Food excellent."
Cons: "On transatlantic flight , seats comfortable but inadequate recline for a night flight and no footrest."
Pros: "absolutely nothing"
Cons: "no food while waiting flight cancelled and no vendors open in the airport, stood in line for 4 hours only to be told no flights available, wasn't asked if they could feed me, put me up in a hotel, absolutely no compensation for me not being able to see my son graduate in the Air Force."
Pros: "The cinnamon cookies, the in-flight movie selection, and the helpful flight crew helped make this flight not as bad as it could have been."
Cons: "There was an infant in the seat directly behind me that chose to cry and scream through a large part of the flight. The mother of this child did not/was not able to keep the child from crying. Even with headphones on, this child's crying persisted to pierce the ears of every passenger within 5 rows of it."
Cons: "Reservation. Checkin. Seating. Flight."
Cons: "Did not have the movie that showed in the sky magazine. The touch screen didn't sense touch very well."
Pros: "The crew friendly,boarding was easy the flight was comfortable they even went around and gave blankets they could do a little more with the snacks. There were TVs so the entertainment was really good. Seats didn't go back, wish they did."
Cons: "I wish they had more snacks like JetBlue but all was fine."
Pros: "don't know it's first flight delta's fault or next flight china southern's,arrive 3 days,but still couldn't find our two bags"
Cons: "Cramped, uncomfortable tin can of an airplane. Barely tolerable for even an hour’s flight."
Pros: "Everything on Delta's part was very well done, and all of their employees were great. Arrived a little early, and very nice entertainment system over their wifi"
Cons: "Expensive ticket, ATL airport staff rude (not Delta employees)"
Cons: "Seats most uncomfortable on any flight I have ever taken"
Cons: "The last 30 people on the plane were told there is no.overhead space for a second bag, so I had to check it at the gate. Once on the plane, there was plenty of overhead space. To make it worse, it was raining at my destination, and my bag, and contents, got wet while it was being unloaded."
Cons: "Delta is a terrible airline. They try to stick you with extra fees every time you turn around, and the planes are horribly uncomfortable. The seats on this flight were so cramped I could barely fit into the. (I'm fairly tall but not very big otherwise.) Additionally, we tried to change our flight to a different day that was less crowded, and were told it would cost over $600 per passenger to do so. Highway robbery. I wish Southwest flew to Madison."
Pros: "The passenger seated next to me with a sense of humor about our situation."
Cons: "For some reason when I booked my flight, for this leg of it, I had "get seat assignment at gate". Once I got my seat assignment I thought I had a window seat: however, when I boarded the plane, I realized that I was in the very last seat of the plane in the window position, but no window. I was crammed in next to a wall and claustrophobic the whole way as I couldn't see anything, couldn't recline at all because behind me was the bathroom, and the engine roared at times in my ears to where I couldn't hear the passenger next to me when we tried to have conversation as the engine was right outside my "wall". We joked, when we could hear each other, that we must've pissed someone at Delta off the last time we flew them. I have no idea why I had to get my seat assignment at the gate for this particular flight, or why I was put in the 'flying coffin' seat, but it made for a very unpleasant experience. Why even have that seat in the plane? Everyone pays a lot of money to fly these days and deserves better than that seat when doing so. just take those two seats out and give everyone else a little more leg room = much better passenger experience for everyone...my suggestion if Delta really cares about the quality of passenger experience."
Pros: "I only fly Delta because they are consistent and efficient and very courteous."
Pros: "Fast boarding and service."
Cons: "Food mediocre, coffee bitter like pots weren't cleaned, frigid cabin temperatures while in flight."
Pros: "The gate agent was outstanding and extremely pleasant. The flight to OKC was only half full so the Crew moved everyone around so there was extra room on every row...that doesn't happen very often so I was excited to have extra leg and seat room!"
Pros: "Easy check in and boarding, and flight left on time."
Pros: "It was a lot more comfortable. There were not many people so it was nice to stretch out ."
Cons: "The plane was fairly dated."

Pros: "Crew was super helpful."
Cons: "Seats could use better cushion"
Pros: "Crew was wonderful."
Cons: "Not much leg room."
Pros: "Friendly crew and better extras in premium economy than my last AA flight. This flight included an upgraded meal, docks, pillow, toothbrush."
Cons: "Entertainment system didn’t work."
Pros: "I like the fact that I made it to Raleigh on time to make my connection"
Cons: "the fee should be more clearly explained for example many times you offer flights that have two connections or more to get a seat assignment on each connection you are required to pay unless you want to wait until the last minute also with this ticket you have to board last on the plane when you board last on the plane chances are there will be no place for your carry-on bags so I don't understand why this type of fair you promote because it's useless"
Pros: "I had someone waiting on me at the gate to escort me to the plane! Great service!"
Cons: "I called the American 1-800 number and was initially greeted with the worst customer service I’ve experienced. I wish i knew her name. I hung up and called back and was helped so well by Anna."
Cons: "The spacing between rows, the aisle and size of seats were terrible. I will go back flying British Airways and Lufthansa!!!!!"
Cons: "3 hours delay, NOT entertainment at all, this is ridiculous! The dinner was regular, but breakfast was terrible."
Cons: "Very long time since I have being on s flight with tv in the aisle , and not on headrest .. this is s international flight ."
Pros: "More clarification pre purchasing of extra bag fees"
Cons: "$50 bag fee. Attendants not friendly. The seat pocket had chewed gum on magazine. Trays were dirty when I turned on the light- looked like blood. Will not fly American anymore."
Pros: "the staff was great from check in at the airport until I landed"
Cons: "I wish the snacks were heathy like dried fruit and nuts"
Cons: "I had already landed late from Budapest, and therefore missed my connecting flight to Raleigh, so I was put on a different flight to Raleigh via Philadelphia. Only, my new flight from London was delayed by one hour, causing me to land late in Philadelphia, and miss my new connecting flight to Raleigh. I was put on a different flight, but there was no seat for me, so I ended up being stuck at the airport overnight. All these in one day!"
Pros: "The smooth boarding process and the enterainment."
Cons: "The limited food option. In general, there's not much vegetables. The food is either a pasta dish (quite heavy) or a meat dish with potatoes or rice."
Pros: "Food was better than expected."
Cons: "Flight was too warm."
Pros: "The dinner was good. The crew were great."
Cons: "It was the worst seat I have ever had."
Pros: "The AA counter agent was very helpful in changing my flight?"
Pros: "The crew was professional"
Pros: "It served the function of crossing the ocean. The crew was kind."
Cons: "The airplane was outdated. It did not have personal entertainment suites at each seat. I haven't flown across the ocean without being able to choose my own movie in 3 years. Also, because of the outdated entertainment suite, the headphone jack is located in the armrest to the side instead of in the seat back in front of you. This caused me to bend my 3.5mm headphone connection at one point while I was moving my leg, because the connection jack is located below thigh level. The temperature was unbearable, and could not be controlled by the flight crew. Dressed for winter weather and roasted for the entire flight. I actually was dehydrated when we landed because I was sweating for 7 hours crossing the ocean."
Pros: "The blanket and pillow, good selection of movies."
Cons: "Maybe the food quality could have been better"
Pros: "Well.....it was canceled so I had to go to charlotte after to London and at the end at Rome and every one of them had delay's"
Pros: "We didn't crash."
Cons: "The crew was just downright rude. Condescending rude and full of tude. Also they are all 100 years old and one lady was so fat she could barely fit in the aisle. Come on AA...really you can't do better than this?? Seats were uncomfortable as can be and food weas slightly worse than average airplane food. funny thing is I always fly delta and delta partners but this time I thought I would go the cheaper route. Never again will I fly American anything anywhere. Very disappointed. There is nothing positive to say about anything except the fact that we didn't crash. We were also delayed 2 hours and sitting on the Tarmac. Horrid experience."
Pros: "I like it every thing about the flight I always find the suitable timing and cheapest fares. I always get a rental car at the airport. This is the best traveling service ever."
Cons: "Running behind schedule."
Cons: "Bad weather cancelled my flight. I probably won't get my money back. I was stuck at airport and had to pay hundreds of dollars to get home by deltA. Grace Elizabeth"
Pros: "I'm alive"
Cons: "Nothing went correct on that flight. They left an airport with low fuel which resulted with us being stuck somewhere over 90 min"
Pros: "Most of the staff were helpful"
Cons: "Some were not"
Pros: "We didn't crash."
Pros: "The crew had excellent customer service"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Cons: "American Airlines tends to ova book that makes things hard. Sat by n watched agents hv to handle to many problems waiting 4 my plane. Flight was delayed to ny from Chicago by 1hour n half. Then no plugs in Chicago airport gates to charge cell phone. They make too much money to be that far behind times."
Pros: "The crew was super nice and professional. The flight was really smooth."
Cons: "I can't say anything bad. It was a great experience."
Pros: "The A321 from DFW to SAN was very nice and comfortable."
Cons: "The Super 80 from ATL to DFW was the hottest aircraft I've ever been on. There was essentially zero airflow making the cabin 95 degrees and 100% humidity. It would have been cooler to stand outside. It was like this when I walked on the jet until well after we leveled off at altitude and then from when we landed (throttles at idle) until we deplaned. We had to wait for a gate for 20 minutes on the Tarmac and then when we got to a gate we had to wait for a gate agent to move the jet bridge for 10 minutes. It was miserable. If you all know you have a low flow aircraft then hurry to hook up the air conditioning cart in both ATL and DFW, fix the APU to produce more air, or don't shut the engines down when there is no gate agent at the aircraft. My clothes were soaked in sweat making this the worst trip I've ever taken. Come on American. You can do better."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 2 hours and there were no TV on a cross country flight."
Pros: "Everything was very smooth-uneventful"
Pros: "Roomy & comfortable seating for such a small aircraft"
Cons: "Late boarding, over an hour"
Cons: "Gate changed and baoarding time changed countless times."
Pros: "Everything was well run, the usual jam to get on the plane but that's a USAir tradition."
Pros: "American Airlines was the best flight experience I've ever had. I've not down twice and the first time we wrecked, so not wrecking was nice."
Pros: "I had such a hard time with another airline I just wanted to go home. The tickets were reasonably priced and the staff friendly/ helpful."
Cons: "No cranapple juice?"
Pros: "Love American."
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Long lay over, could not get access to finair web site to get upgrade."
Pros: "Took off and landed on time!"
Cons: "The fat person next to me! Lol !"
Pros: "All the AA staff were great, very helpful as I was traveling alone with my 10 month old son. One of the flight attendants helped me carry our things on, because it's tough to carry my son in his safety seat and our bags through the narrow aisles without beating up everyone in the aisle seats as we go through! She also checked on us multiple times to see if there was anything else she could help us with."
Cons: "The AA check-in at Heathrow is terrible. It took us over an hour to get through the line, then another 20 minutes to get our seats changed because the seats we had been assigned weren't suitable for an infant safety seat! Also, the plane is older than the one I first took on the RDU to london route back in 2001. The seating is cramped and there is no seat back entertainment."
Cons: "The flight was delayed. When we arrived to RDU we had to wait for about 10 minutes for staff to marshal us in and then we had to wait another 10 minutes for them to open the door. This was at 1am!"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and attentive"
Cons: "Older aircraft, delayed."
Pros: "Everything was great until I arrived in New York LGA. The staff at Atlanta's airport were great from the curbside checkin agents to the wheelchair attendant and gate agents so that they 45 minute delay due to air traffic in New York was hardly noticeable. The flight attendants were pleasant and friendly and the food was delicious. We actually arrived ahead of our adjusted ETA, after a very smooth flight."
Cons: "Upon arrival in New York, the 3 of us who needed wheelchair assistance waited and waited for them to come. Finally, the gate agents rounded up some wheelchairs that were sitting around nearby just to get us off the plane and to the gate area. After waiting about 15 minutes, while hearing the gate agents being told repeatedly by the wheelchair dispatcher on the radios that they were coming and were passing through security, 2 female attendants finally arrived and they took the two elderly ladies and off they went, leaving me there waiting. I continued to wait, and wait, and wait for ANOTHER 25 MINUTES, total of 40 minutes after arrival at the gate. The same dispatcher lady continued to say that my attendant was on the way, passing through security for the entire 25 minutes. He asked me to change wheelchairs because he liked his better. He didn't offer to take my laptop bag and put it behind. He took off down the concourse before my feet were even on the footrests, with me holding my legs out in front of me because the footrests were up. After 20 or 30 feet, I got him to stop and let me get my feet down. I told him our luggage was supposed to be at carousel E, so he took me to "A". He asked me if any of the bags there were mine, and I said, "Why would they be here? I told you we were on Carousel E!" So then he wheeled me to Carousel E, and since it had now been almost an hour, it was empty. He asked an attendant where my bag would be, and was told to check at the office, which was back over by Carousel A. Upon finally checking with the personnel in the office, he came out rolling my bags and stood them by me for me to deal with while he just pushed the wheelchair. I had told him I was taking Uber, so he deposited me curbside near the taxi stand, which was not anywhere near where Uber could pick me up and was gone. FINALLY, after arriving earlier than expected at 3:25, at 4:43 I was finally picked up by Uber to go on home. What a nightmare! I thought the wheelchairs were supposed to be waiting upon arrival????"
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Horrible delay due to maintenance. Seat cushion completely gone. Forced to wait on shuttle bus too long"
Pros: "That the flight got me home."
Cons: "One of the worse flights. Feeding children to keep them quite is not the answer. This is the 3rd or 4th time that a child has puked because the parent keeps feeding them to entertain them. And then other passengers were talking so loudly that they could care less about the others around them. Come on passengers, get a clue about the others around you. To top off, it took almost an hour to receive luggage."
Cons: "Cancelled for unknown mechanical issue."
Pros: "This flight was a bit better, we slept most of it."
Cons: "Our bags did not arrive to RDU, we had to wait till the next flight."
Pros: "On time, easy boarding, good seat mates"
Pros: "AFlight was fast and crew was accomdating."
Cons: "I did not like the fact that I was padded down not once but twice at the age of 69 almost 70. Really did not know I was a threat to the airlines. I'm staying with my daughter at Ft.Bragg."
Pros: "It was smooth and easy"
Cons: "Long walk to get to terminal in the rain."
Pros: "Nothing. The only thing that was good it was that it was a direct flight, however with the delay it make it longer than other flights with stops"
Cons: "Will not use your airline in the future due unreliable flights. Never experienced this with any other airline"
Pros: "Seats and legroom seem roomier than other airlines. Helps that seats don't recline."
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: "I liked that the flight was not long"
Cons: "The seats were extremely uncomfortable"
Cons: "I was not on this flight. Despite the fact that my ticket was clearly for this flight, I ended up on a flight to Charlotte, not Raleigh. I do not know how this happened. Yes, perhaps I could have been more careful in the middle of the night while making a mad dash from one flight to the next. But how is it possible that Frontier can scan my ticket and not notice that I'm about to board the wrong flight? How is it possible that their computer system didn't alert them that I was about to board a flight for which I did not have a ticket? It seems more likely that the person who scanned my ticket wasn't paying attention."
Pros: "Overall it was a lot better then my flight to Atlanta"
Cons: "The seats are extremely hard"
Cons: "Flight was delayed several hours. This led to a loss of work time and money for me. I will not fly Frontier again for a business trip."
Pros: "I liked the leg space."
Cons: "The flight attendants spilled ice water all over a man. They also skipped over my row with the cart and we were all wide awake."
Pros: "Cheap price"
Cons: "4 hour delay and terribly uncomfortable plane."
Pros: "Easy ticketing, boarding and flight. All staff was courteous and helpful"
Cons: "Nothing was wronf5"
Pros: "I woke up to an email 31/2 hours before my daughters flight was suppose to leave Atlanta informing me that the flight was canceled. Called customer service where the man I spoke with was unable to or unwilling to tell me anything except that "yes it looks like the flight was canceled". His suggestion was to have my sister drive my daughter an hour and a half to the airport to see if there "might" be a flight available through another airline. Frontier did not have any flights going to or near RDU that day.Since my daughter had to be in Raliegh that day I spent the next 10 hours in the car going to get her. I did receive a refund but only because I requested one,otherwise they just don't refund automatically."
Cons: "Customer service represenitives are not very informative. The flights may be slightly cheaper but you have to pay for checked baggage as well as carry on bags. When checking her in the night before and picking a seat in coach my sister had to pay a "fee" for her seat, so an additional fee of $57 dollars for one bag and a seat.... Really?"
Cons: "Everything. Maintenance issue. Debording in Austin. Seat confusion. Never again!"
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."
Pros: "Nice plane with good room for sitting (I have long legs). Great service and the flight was the smoothest I have ever experienced"
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: "It was on time"
Cons: "Flying is no longer a luxury over any other form of transportation. It was at one point. The only reason to fly is to get there faster. No appreciation was felt for for helping pay Frontier's bills."
Pros: "The crew were very polite."
Cons: "I hated that the seats didn't recline at all. Luckily it was only a 2 hour flight."
Pros: "flight was only delayed because of weather. captain was good to explain and we didn't lose any time in transit."
Cons: "there is no organization, zoning was called two at a time vs. one at a time to allow for ease of lining up."
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: "Paying for a carry on Seats do not recline No complimentary beverages Flight was delayed and we rarely received updates I understand that you charge for everything in order to offer better prices, but by the time the customer pays to bring on luggage, we are paying the same price as an airline that allows baggage for free with inclusive drinks, snacks and seats that recline."
Pros: "The seats had a surprising amount of legroom, and the staff was nice (though i'm not sure why there were as many as a normal flight from another airline, since they don't do anything beyond the safety demo)"
Cons: "You are not adequately made aware that you will be charged for carry on unlike other airlines. And in doing so, the price of the ticket goes from being impressively cheap to being more than a flight from another airline that has more included amenities, like actual refreshements and free carry-ons. You also get charged for just selecting a seat, not a special seat, but ANY SEAT AT ALL. So the price you initially see when searching for flights is quite misleading. In reality, you should ad at least 50 bucks to any frontier ticket to get a truer picture of what the price would be for a normal passenger with a single carry-on that wants a particular seat."
Cons: "Charged for checked bag, carry-ons, and to select seats on the flight. Seats were uncomfortable and did not recline. Crew seemed like they wanted to be there less than we did and was poor at distributing water in the Sahara that was our cabin."
Cons: "Hidden fees! Seat fees, checks. Bag fees. And what the **** is a carry-on bag fee? And after paying $75 to have two small bags TOTAL, y'all lost my luggage? Never again."
Pros: "The flight itself was ok. I especially liked the humor the captain used while going through the routine safety explanation! Also, despite being delayed by about 30 minutes, we still somehow arrived at our destination city early/ on time."
Cons: "My girlfriend pointed out that you guys do not have air-sickness bags available."
Pros: "I have to admit that the seats were more comfortable than they looked. But I could not recline."
Cons: "The delays, several hours going to Atlanta and one hour coming back. It appears this is typical for Frontier. Also, $40.00 for the carry on. The deal I thought I had was not a deal. By the time I paid $80.00 round trip for two I could have taken a more convenient flight for the same money without paying for my carry on. I went with Frontier because I thought I was getting a deal. I felt nickled and dimed, pay for soft drinks??????? But the worse was the delays, with no explanation at all!"
Pros: "Once we were on the plane, all was well. I liked the seats, I'm short and the seats were short which means my feet touched the floor which means I was more comfortable. Good lower back support. In Trenton shuttle to far away parking lot came right away which was GREAT!"
Cons: "No pilot for hours = delayed flight. Long wait in terminal. Not nearly enough plugs for charging electronic equipment. Online choosing of seats confusing -- why pay more $$ to choose seats? Didn't I buy three seats? Not told that we would be landing on tarmac and not attached to terminal, so had to walk outside in the cold to get to terminal in Trenton. Would have like to have known before I got off the plane."
Pros: "'The cost was reasonable. Scheduling was acceptable."
Cons: "Seats were mediocre. On arrival in Denver, I had to wait over two hours to pick up my luggage because there was apparently no available crew to unload it from the plane. Also there did not seem to be anyone available to explain what was going on. When I returned to Atlanta, I took the same bag on board with me and it cost more to carry it on than it did to check it, but I preferred not to have the same experience trying to retrieve my bag there. I don't think I will fly Frontier again."
Pros: "For the money i spent to fly the only thing i had free was water. Wasn't used to flying with no complimentary snacks and to purchase items were a bit expensive. Baggage took too long 30 minutes. Wasnt accustom to waiting for my luggage at the baggage claim. Other than that the flight was good. Thanks for your service, but i will try not to use Frontier airline's"
Pros: "On time for departing and arrival. No frills but felt comfortable."
Cons: "The baggage fee is not included in ticket prices."
Pros: "The plane seem fairly new and the boarding was fairly smooth. The crew was calm and even patient from my perspective, considering they were handling mad costumers after a 3&1/2 hour delay on christmast day. I saw good will on this flight from the crew. Remember when the pilots use to show you the cockpit? Well this pilot did to a kid as he entered the plane. The kid and his father were very happy, expeessing how cool is was as they continue to board. That, was a nice gesture and resulted in relaxing some people! The flight was fairly quick once we were in the air. Tha been said. This flight did t allow for me to rate entertaiment and food since it was too short for the crew to set that up."
Cons: "Well obviously the massive delayed! I, like many arrived at the airport with enough hours ahead to take this flight so say 6-7am only to sit around until 12:00pm in order to depart. That alone is a fairly black mark. In addition, the gate kept been moving around. Of course there are other planes to arrive and that needs to be understood but the constant changing and moving to distant gates was a bit tough on some of us."
Pros: "The fare was reasonable. The flight was on time. Boarding was quick. The seats were ridiculously uncomfortable and would not recline. So small. Baggage policy is impossible. For passengers who did not check the website before the flight it was a surprise to be hit with a carry on baggage fee. The airline is only good for extremely short trips when you don't have to bring anything but a change of underwear."
Cons: "Flight was delayed three hours with no compensation for time. It would've been nice to receive a voucher for dinner considering time. Also, attempting to sleep on a flight is always difficult but turning on the lights to serve beverages was a bit much. Dim lighting would be a better option."
Pros: "I was not aware of paying for the seats. I bought the tickets on kayak.com, but I can't remember seeing anything about paying for seats and carry on. The staff was great and funny at times. I thing airlines need to put all charges up front that includes kayak.com"
Pros: "First the flight itself was incredibly smooth. No turbulence just an easy controlled flight. I felt very safe."
Cons: "One of the male attendants was very condescending, bossy, and rude. I didn't k know there were so many fees! $40 just for a carry on! Charges for drinks and snacks?? Plus if you want a seat that reclines it's $27 extra??? it's very uncomfortable to be on the redeye and have to sit straight up for 4 hours."
Cons: "After checking in the night before, we arrived at the gate only to be told the flight was overbooked. We watched for over 15 minutes, more than 10 people run to catch the flight with seconds to spare-only to be told we werent going to get the seats I booked a month in advance. We'll NEVER (almost) fly Frontier again. Only saving grace-a nice supervisor (Mandy) got us a refund plus some. Thank you Mandy."
Pros: "Had a great fight all around. Staff was friendly and helpful. Lines moved efficiently."
Pros: "I liked that it was cheap, mainly because I was only there for a day and didn't have to pay for luggage. The staff seemed ok and everything else was normal."
Cons: "I didn't like how they basically charge for every single thing. They charge for checked bags, carry ons, the seat selection, and any kid of food or drink that's not water."
Cons: "I say the exact same "I should have just flown delta" story EVERY TIME I go with a cheap airline. Flight was delayed from 5pm to 6pm, then to 11:30pm, then 1:30am. So I had to buy a stupid expensive last minute ticket on Delta (Frontier doesn't work with other airlines, to rebook flights or even find your luggage) then drive two hours from the airport to see my family for the holidays.. Then take a 2 hour trip back to the airport the next day to pick up my luggage, which Frontier wouldn't deliver to me because I "voluntarily separated" from them. I suppose that's technically true, but I think there's an argument there that Frontier's complete lack of competency forced to me do it."
Pros: "On time, good price, efficient boarding, pleasant flight attendants"
Cons: "Nickel and dime price methodology, outdoor boarding in Trenton, bagge claim is slow, $6 seats are cramped"
Pros: "Everything was great prior to baggage claim in Denver"
Cons: "I had to wait for over an hour before the bags from the flight were sent to baggage claim."
Cons: "carr y on 70 $"
Pros: "I knew of the baggage policies so check in was easy and smooth. Other people seemed to have trouble with it so maybe baggage policies should be more advertised. Overall, great and comfortable experience for me."
Cons: "They didn't have paperwork done and we were sitting on the runway for over an hour waiting."
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Frontier charges $45 for a carry-on bag and $40 for a checked back. At no point was I made aware of this. The fault is my own, I suppose, but Frontier clearly misleads their customers. Will not fly again."
Pros: "When you pay for a discount airline you should not expect lazy boy recliners and 5 course meals. You get a seat and some pleasant people guiding you to it."
Cons: "It is now 2016 (almost as I write this). They need to have some sort of power port on ALL planes. Like a charging station, but I'd suggest one that can be swapped out with changing technology. Right now, a USB charging port at each seat would make flights more productive. On board wi-fi would also be a welcome amenity."
Cons: "I got charged for a carry on yet they made me carry it on! It makes no sense. I am never flying Soirot again"
Pros: "New planes. Friendly staff"
Cons: "Seats did not recline. Seats were very hard. Baggage fees were just so high. 45$ for a carry on."
Cons: "TSA check in"
Pros: "Punctual and Smooth flight."
Cons: "Did not buy food. No entertainment."
Cons: "Several flight delays,... finally after several hours flight cancelled due to no pilot. Voucher for a low class Days Inn hotel in a dangerous neighborhood. Next day flight scheduled for 9am...it was delayed again leaving Atlanta 1245. My sister who has cancer suffered a stroke andit was an inconvenience. Some of the agents rude not helpful at all. At all times.es if I'm spending my money..you should be professional at all times."
Cons: "They closed the gate early and 30 of us were unable to get our flight to Orlando. Because we "missed" the flight, they also cancelled our return and kept the money. Crooks!"
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."
Cons: "very uncomfortable cramped seating"
Pros: "FLIGHT DETAILS : Mr INAM Rabbani. FLIGHT NO NK541 CONFIRMSTION CODE : PHFHKE DATED : 25 FEB, 2017 Please refund my US DOLLAR 55, charged for my bag through my Citibank card. Cards code : 715. Please also give me compensation for giving me mental agony."
Cons: "I was travelling from Atlanta to Tampa on 25thfebrury 2017. The birding cards were issued. First it was announced several times the flight was delayed. Finally the flight was cancelled. I paid US 55 for the My only bag. The amount has so far not refunded in my account. My fight number was NK541. Confirmation code is PHFHKE. My name is Inam Rabbani. Please refund my money into my account."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and helpful"
Pros: "I haven't enjoyed flying Spirit in the past but this time was much better. Flights were on time, staff was courteous, and didn't have any unexpected issues with baggage."
Pros: "It was a smooth flight."
Cons: "Spirit charges extra for almost everything; picking a larger seat, $3 for a soda, up to $100 for a carry on bag. There were some people that didn't know they could only have 1 free personal item, like a purse, and an actual carry on bag had a cost."
Pros: "Friendly, efficient crew. Arrived to destination ahead of schedule. Very affordable ticket price."
Cons: "No frills at all - try to upcharge for everything: bags, food, seat selection, etc. It is definitely a budget airline."
Pros: "Nothing this was awful"
Cons: "The fact that this was the only flight for the day, and with over 30 people checked in but not boarded they tried to close the doors and leave. Airport was packed and people had hard time making it to gate. Had to convince them to open back up"
Cons: "Late take off and arrive. Then flight back was cancelled. I was stuck in trying to get home to my son."
Cons: "Departure out of Chicago was delayed as was return flight out of Atlanta. Once return flight landed we were on the tarmac for close to an hour waiting for a gate to clear. Terrible experience all around."
Pros: "The low price flight ticket, until I realized it was $50 to check my bag. Would've rather flown a MUCH nicer carrier with half the bag price. Not likely to fly again unless it's crazy cheap for a short distance."
Cons: "Too expensive of a bag check fee. Small seats. No entertainment. No free food. Cheap, cheap, cheap. No thank you."
Pros: "My flight to Chicago was good My flight from Chicago was horrible (a nightmare)"
Cons: "One of the supervisors that I had to deal with was the worst that I have every experienced."
Pros: "hidden fees, chaotic boarding and flight 4 hours. late. Never again"
Cons: "Flights were delayed. Spirit lost our luggage after they forced us to pay over $100.00 for baggage expenses. My bride and I had medications, gifts and clothes needed for this holiday trip, Since this incident, we had to cancel plans and spend additional money, This is completely unacceptable. We will be looking into filing complaints with the federal trade commission, the attorney general, better business bureau to name a few."
Pros: "Security was well organizad. Boarding was quick and flight left right on time!!"
Cons: "Both of my flights were delayed. Neither flight updated the departure time but instead left everyone waiting at the gate without any information about what was happening. The spirit staff we're rude and didn't seem to care for their guests concerns. My connecting flight in Atlanta didn't have the accurate gate listed on the airport's departing flight screen. To top things off my luggage was lost and I haven't received it yet. I will not be flying with spirit again, and I'm terrified to see what is in store for my flight home."
Pros: "It was cheap"
Cons: "The flight was delayed and I had to move my seat due to the "unaccompanied passenger-regarding a minor" rule so that the minor could stay near the attendant."
Cons: "Missed it because Spirit was delayed. Received zero help and had to buy another ticket from American Airlines which is a great company."
Pros: "Nice trip"
Cons: "The charges me 50 dollars for one bag"
Cons: "Someone sitting in my assigned seat"
Pros: "Cheap prices?"
Cons: "The fact that they nickel and dime you for every last thing -- even water and carry on items!"
Pros: "I loved to personality of the crew members. They really made you happy and comforted you."
Cons: "The flight was late. They seats were invomfortale. We boarded the plane 45 min after our original departure time and the plane was already docked."
Pros: "late as usual"
Pros: "I am thankful that we arrived safely to destination."
Cons: "I hated the hidden cost! I was nickeled and dimed for everything. Flight was delayed 5 times. Gate change without noticed and hated I paid a total of 112 extra for seats and luggage for one carry on! Customer service was awful too! Never again! Guess it is true that you will always pay for what you get!"
Cons: "I hate Spirit's fees for a checked bag n for use of checking in at airport. The so called cheap fares become more expensive because of these fees. Some of us to not have access to computer for pre-check in, and should NOT be charged extra for it. I do Not plan to fly Spirit again. There is a reason why your flights are more than half empty!!!"
Pros: "The cleanliness of the aircraft"
Cons: "The communication to passengers of boarding time. Or any last minute changed boarding times. the ability to check in early without needing to sign up to be a member!!!!!"
Pros: "Quick and easy"
Pros: "The carry on and checked bag charges are way too high."
Cons: "No inflight refreshments nor are they military friendly."
Pros: "The attendents are very friendly and welcoming. The ticket price is great especially for an impromptu trip."
Cons: "The plane was very cramped and my seat was broken so I had a bar jamming in my backside, with no leg room. They get you with all the hidden extras they charge. You don't hey a carry on, have to pay to choose a seat, have to pay for in flight snacks; its ridiculous. Also upon landing we were delayed at the terminal for roughly 20 mins because of poor planning and that was just tiresome at that time in the morning."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled and they did nothing to help me get another flight. They tried pushing me back 4 days and said I was taking the risk booking with them. I ended up having to scramble to find a new flight and paying a lot more money. I was not happy."
Cons: "Small seating n extra charges. An was not Military friendly"
Pros: "PEOPLE WERE VERY NICE"
Cons: "BAG FEES"
Cons: "Flight was canceled and moved a day they were flirty rude and in accommodating"
Pros: "Not one single thing. I will be asking for a full refund."
Cons: "I arrived to check in 50 minutes before my flight departed and was denied entry onto the flight. The counter attendant was rude and completely uninterested in helping me. The next flight he could offer would not get me to my destination until 30 hour later. The flight ended up being delayed by over an hour, but I was still not permitted to get on the flight. In the meantime, I purchased a flight from your competitor, Southwest Airlines, departed within the hour, and reached my destination long before your miserable plane arrived. Thanks for nothing!"
Pros: "U suck and ur dumb"
Cons: "Seats on plane were uncomfortable!"
Cons: "What we thought was a good price for tickets became a "baited" offer. When we tried to select our seats online AND at the airport kiosk it was going to be an additional $15, $20 or $25 charge. Second, there was a charge for all menu times. Third, the seats would not recline and were very stiff. However, there was a lot of leg space."
Pros: "all the flights where on time"
Cons: "i decided to go with spirit due to their economical prices, but after paying for my one bag i was checking in for an internation flight Note. their max weight its 40pounds, paying for the being over paying for all of mi sit $14.00 and having to pay for water, i ended up paying more if i just had choosen a different airline...... well lesson learn dont let spirit prices fool you"
Pros: "Your flight crew were fun and personable. The young lady who helped check me in was amazing. Can't remember her name but she was black with short curly hair. She was a doll. Very professional and helpful. Very polite."
Cons: "I was in row 26 the very back and it was a bit cramped but not too much of a bother."
Pros: "Ground staff were friendly, moving people as quickly as possible on and off the plane. Plane staff were friendly, effficient."
Cons: "Happy I was on the aisle so I didn't have to share as much of my seat with my neighbor. There really was a ridiculously small amount of leg room. I probably will not fly Spirit again."
Pros: "Literally, nothing"
Cons: "There was not a pilot for our flight, the flight was one he late taking off, the baggage fees were too expensive:"
