There were complications with my flights boarding in spokane and my secondary flight was changed without my consent to one that boarded at the same time as my first flight let me out on the opposite side of the massivr layover airport. It was only because an employee saw my struggle and confusion and hooked me up with a ride that I even made the flight dispite delta's best efforts. My TV's headphone jack on my first flight was also busted which sucked to find out after buying headphones on the flight. About halfway through the flight one of the attendants moved me to a seat with a working TV. Long story short Delta as an airline was terrible but their employees did their best to help me with what limited options they had to work with.

Pros: "Arriving 40 minutes ahead of schedule. Delta makes more an effort to provide spacing between passengers and provides sanitizer wipes both on boarding and with the snack pack."
Cons: "Not a thing!"
Cons: "No mechanical failures or delays would be nice"
Cons: "Way too cramped"
Pros: "Flight was mostly uneventful, which is great! Right after takeoff we made a complete circle and no information was given as to why, but we assumed it was air traffic."
Pros: "Not enough toom between rows of seats."
Pros: "The flight was 90 minutes late"
Cons: "On time performance"
Cons: "Bring ear buds if you want to watch/listen to a movie. Delta changes for ear buds Everything else was fine"
Pros: "Delta crews are very friendly and helpful. Seats are 'good' on the E175 plane - better than the cramped CRJ200 on some other short flights. We boarded early, left a little early and arrived early. Nothing to complain about, except maybe a crying baby behind me, but that's not Delta's fault. :)"
Pros: "Choice of Entertainment was excellent"
Cons: "Bigger snacks - 2 small cookies or small pack of almonds was indigenous 2 hr flight"
Cons: "Issues with connecting flights so had to sit in different place, seat was broken"

Cons: "Super small plane."
Cons: "We paid for comfort plus but the seats were no different than main cabin. Comfort plus experience on other legs was much better."

Cons: "Can't really think of anything unless you can shorten the flight!?!"
Cons: "Two bags delayed between JFK and MSP."
Pros: "Entertainment on short flights is a nice surprise"

Pros: "On time, smooth take off and landing."
Pros: "Service"
Cons: "More seat space"
Pros: "Smooth ride"

Pros: "staff was friendly and very attentive to my needs."

Pros: "I liked the service to see if there was a chance to upgrade because of the connecting flight and even though there was a delay in the plane arriving to Alaska, the quick turn was excellent and we were in the air within a short period of time."
Cons: "The comfortability and that’s rear even if I had the middle seat. I had it on my way towards Alaska and didn’t have any issue"
Cons: "This was my worst EVER airline experience. It was delayed 27 hours and the snow was not the only problem. When we finally got on board a plane we sat on the runway for over two hours - then they FORGOT to load the luggage!!!"
Pros: "All the attendants were very nice. The movies were great, but ones I would have liked to watch were not on your list."
Cons: "There was no Christian music on the music section."
Cons: "I had a 4 hour layover in Minneapolis, there was another flight to Denver that I meant I could’ve been home three hours earlier had I done standby, but because I had a cheaper ticket I was not allowed that opportunity. That makes absolutely no sense to me seeing as my flight was packed. I’m sorry my flight saved me money"
Pros: "The plane was an older model but staff allowed main cabin to use 1sr class bathroom."
Cons: "The choices of free snacks were limited. They should also give more than 1 package of peanut."
Pros: "Everyone was very courteous, the plane took off on schedule and arrived at our destination early. Also got a complimentary upgrade to Comfort Plus."
Cons: "Ticket price was a bit much, the seats and aisle inside the plane are only made for skinny people. Aisle was barely longer across than my foot, and the guy next to me was a bit bigger than average, leaving me to have to scrunch in my seat the whole flight. Lots of elbows, butts and hips knocking into my shoulders as people boarded."
Cons: "It was smelly. Anyone who does not smoke can smell old smoke. Yuk. Also, smells like a neighboring passenger has bowel issues. Ick"
Pros: "Lots of water"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The crew were nice and friendly. The plane was new with lots of amenities"
Cons: "The new plane has NO leg room at all. It’s the worst leg room i’ve Experienced for such a large plane. I’m 6’1” and my knees would only fit if I spread my legs wide and sit back deep into the chair."
Pros: "Everything went fast & smooth"
Cons: "No leg room"
Pros: "It was everything you look for on a plane. Friendly crew. Lots of space. Clean. Lots of entertainment. Plenty of space for luggage."
Cons: "I loved it all."
Pros: "We arrived early, great flight."
Cons: "We had to wait at customs about 30 minutes because we were early!"
Pros: "Very quick boarding process. There was no entertainment so I couldn't rate that."
Cons: "There should be a N/A option if there is no entertainment available."
Cons: "Flight attendant from IND to Minneapolis must have had a rough evening or bad morning. Service in airplane is usually poor but this one was worse. Bumping most of the passenger when passing, handing drinks behind his back, not smiling."
Pros: "I like the snacks they are not giving out on the flights. It seems that Delta is trying to make the flying experience nicer instead of more tedious and uncomfortable like many other airlines, which is appreciated."
Cons: "The flights were both operated by Delta but booked through WestJet, and the flights themselves were fine. The booking was through WestJet (found the flight on kayak which kicked me over to West Jet's site) and check in was a pain. Their code did not work for their site or Delta's, I had to FB message them both leaving and returning to ask for the correct one, and the first request took them hours to answer. I'll just book Delta next time and save myself the trouble."
Pros: "Delta flew their way back into my heart this time around"
Cons: "Seats are so tight so uncomfortable"
Pros: "Fabulous fight. Attentive staff and I love the free entertainment tv’s."
Pros: "They solved my name matching problem with calm and efficiency, so I made it to my conference. Thank you !!"
Pros: "There were alot of good movies to choose from, and the food wasn't bad."
Cons: "It's always very uncomfortable to sit on a plane for a long time, but that's nobody's fault"
Pros: "The aircraft was new and most flight crew were nice."
Cons: "Way too many useless announcements by the copilot and the lead flight attendant. Keep it short. Don't get back on once you put the mic back. And how about announcing th baggage claim carousel if your going to interrupt as much as you did."
Pros: "Entertainment system was good, great crew, great food, great service"
Pros: "The crews were very friendly and everything went as planned. It was a nice flight."
Pros: "Flight was on time and left and arrived on time."
Cons: "Should offer headphones for free."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Smooth and easy flight."
Cons: "Transfer from international (T5) to T1 at O'Hare is very unpleasant..Generally O'Hare is a terrible airport."
Pros: "Smooth landing!"
Cons: "Late 30”"
Cons: "Delayed from another flight but this crew tried their best to get us up in the air"
Pros: "Better comfortable seats. And snack options"
Pros: "Respect and support"
Pros: "Crew was good. Could watch movie on phone. Arrived early."
Cons: "No seat back entertainment. Didn’t offer lunch options, just snacks. Barely made it to boarding due to previous United flight being delayed. Appearently, since we arrived early, was no staff at gate so couldn’t de-board."
Cons: "Lost my bags..."
Cons: "There’s a guy cree that is rude."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for a half hour. No one announced anything about the delay until we were almost leaving. It would have been nice to at least share what was happening and when we could expect to leave. Delays are always frustrating but especially so late at night and when no information is given."
Pros: "Standard, quick domestic flight home. Nothing special."
Cons: "I paid for power, entertainment and dinner and I got none of that. My legs were FAR too long for sitting there. I am a disabled vet, the whole trip was PAINFUL."
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "The flight was more than half empty and instead of allowing customers to move forward to the “premium” seats, the flight crew keep everyone all bunched up in the back of the plane. It would have been a nice customer service gesture to allow people to move forward. And, hey, maybe next time people would have bought those seats if they could have experienced them. Guess I should have felt lucky to remain on the plane and not get punched in the face..."
Cons: "Flight attendants were rude."
Pros: "The crew was amazing."
Pros: "Crew very good"
Cons: "Seats not very comfortable"
Pros: "Was clean and nice"
Cons: "Everything was good"
Pros: "The layover in Denver worked out perfectly - no long wait. The first leg they announced Gate check early so there were no delays on boarding. On-time flight."
Cons: "The leg room. Small size of complimentary snacks. No United entertainment."
Cons: "The next time I'm going to drive to Chicago to save $500.00 or more on my trip to South America or use a different airline."
Pros: "United had gotten the idea that they should charge more for their flights. They've done it by inventing a new "basic economy" class which costs just what it used to cost to fly economy, only you don't get to pick your seats, don't get to bring a carry on, and can't check in for your flight without one of their staff verifying your personal item isn't secretly a carry-on."
Cons: "Being treated like a third class citizen because I'm poor."
Cons: "I wish I knew I couldn't bring my carry on with me!!! United is always finding ways to screw the passenger's experience. I have a wedding to go to and needed my small duffle carry on with me and because I got a "basic economy" ticket, this was not possible. Some forewarning of this insanity would have been helpful! Really so annoyed!"
Pros: "NOTHING"
Cons: "EVERYTHING~"
Cons: "Many delays I can't believe you're making people pay now $25 to check Carry on bags. That makes me want to use Delta every single time"
Pros: "Let us sleep with out disturbing!"
Cons: "We were three hours late due to poor planning"
Cons: "Great"
Cons: "It was delayed"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Let's see my seat did not recline. The stewardess bumped into me every time she passed. The flight attendant was wearing way way way too much cologne. They had no room for my carry on. The beverages took way to long. I could not use the Internet. You changed my flight time over and over and over I was supposed to leave at 5 I didn't leave until 10. I could not sleep because the flight attendants was wearing Christmas lights and they would wake me up and she keep bumping in to be be is she did not know how to walk in the isles. The cookie were stale. There was something in my cup so I could not drink my free drink. There's more. It was the worst flight I have ever been on."
Pros: "Prompt, organized boarding. Professional, pleasant staff."
Cons: "Flight was overbooked. My adult son and I had tickets to "see agent" and given seats together. But they'd also assigned his seat a another person, who was already settled. Luckily, there was a seat left, and both arrived at out destination. Their solution was to move him, even tho we were traveling together."
Pros: "Never took it"
Cons: "Never took this flight"
Pros: "Flight attendants were very nice. The plane was clean."
Cons: "The economy seats are TOO CLOSE TOGETHER. Attendants NEED to be more aware of the size of carry-on items and the amount each person brings onto the plane. People in the front 10 rows of the plane should not be putting their luggage in the back, taking up space so people in groups 3-5 have space to put their luggage."
Pros: "Roomy seats. Good leg room."
Cons: "Seat comfort is ok, they do not recline very much. You can only watch movies if you have an app on your phone or tablet."
Cons: "N/A"
Cons: "Crowded"
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Departure time changed at least six times. Gate and plane were both unbearably cold - passengers were all complaining. Departure gate at EWR was gross, run-down, and did not have working outlets."
Pros: "This flight was very relaxing as it could be. I do not like to fly but the crew made it very easy to relax and get comfortable."
Pros: "Gate agent moved us to first class due to lack of seats in main. Nice to see they can do that."
Pros: "It was my grandson's first plane ride. They let us board early because I was managing two carry on suitcases. The flight was smooth and he loved the apple juice. He learned so much by looking out the window and seeing the ground and the clouds."
Pros: "Crew was attentive. My seat was taken by someone else but crew helped me find another seat. (Which was fine by me). Pilot kept passengers in formed of weather conditions and bumpy ride."
Pros: "The staff on the plane were very good."
Cons: "The flight was oversold which apparently gave the employee at the gate a reason to be rude. Also the plane was freezing. People were pulling out blankets and covering themselves with anything available."
Pros: "That the plane actually took off and landed fine."
Cons: "Flight delayed almost 2 hours. I booked this flight on this airline as my previous flight on a different airline was delayed over 7 hours."
Pros: "Easy flight , no fuss no muss . Great snacks ."
Cons: "More seating area in the airport near the gate , flight itself was great ."
Cons: "No wifi. No movie."
Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "Very late"
Pros: "Newer plane. Very nice staff"
Cons: "Floor around seat was dirty. Lot of exaggerated braking. Suggested a new pilot perhaps?"
Pros: "Boarding and deplaining went smoothly"
Cons: "Rear seats didn't recline and we're not as comfortable as other passengers"
Pros: "Nothing. The flight didn't exist."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled for aircraft maintenance with very little notice (waiting at the gate) and the next available flight didn't leave until the next day. Got put up in a $75 airport hotel room WITHOUT my luggage and was provided a $10 food voucher for meals. Are you kidding me??? So, I must pay for your problem? This was ridiculous and extremely inconvenient."
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "No communication from flight crew as we circled. Also no communication of delays."
Pros: "Cheap ticket."
Cons: "2 hour delay, packed flight."
Pros: "Boarding and de-planing went great."
Cons: "The flight crew all wore strong perfumes, plus it was very turbulent. As a result, the strong perfumes really made me nauseated when the turbulence was bad."
Cons: "one hour late leaving"
Pros: "Saved me on price even when I called n checked on united website. Found a better deal with u for the situation I was in."
Cons: "I wish I didn't have to u use you do I had a flight but Internet did not work n 6 of us couldn't get on our orginal flights. So thanks for the plan B !!"
Cons: "I was a passenger on a Frontier flight from DIA to TMA on 5/13/2018. My luggage was checked and a tag indicating the bag was to go all the way to the final destination (there was a stop in St. Paul, Minnesota) was securely placed on the suitcase. However when I arrived at the Trenton airport my bag did not. There were no Frontier airlines agents on duty so I filled out a form given to me by one of the airport staff. When I checked the Frontier website today it said to fill out a Frontier Lost and Found report. Upon doing so I received an email saying finding a lost bag could take weeks and that after a month they consider the bag permanently lost. No offer or process was provided for compensation for lost bag or the items within. This is unacceptable! I had prescription medication in my bag that's not easily refilled."
Pros: "Staff friendly enough"
Cons: "We were 3 hours late in taking off. It sucked only some people were notified about that vs text and email."
Cons: "The seats are not comfortable they do not recline and the headrests sticks out far. I had to work a 13 hr shift a couple hours after I landed and really would’ve appreciated at least being able to recline"
Cons: "The flight was overbooked due to switching to a smaller aircraft. When my family boarded the airplane, we went to find out that the row we were booked into seats (31) did not exist on this plane. The rows went to 30. My parents and aunt who are elderly had to wait standing at the back of the plane until the stewards found us new seats. Before we boarded the airline they announced that they were overbooked and were asking for people to voluntarily give up their seats. When we boarded the plane, there were about 8 stewards in training on the flight. If the airline had oversold seats on this flight, why were those training not held back for the next flight instead of making their customers wait?"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "Every crew member was friendly and helpful."
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Check in was under staffed and not wild about a fee for carry ons."
Pros: "Price was great"
Cons: "I checked in online but still had to wait in line to check my bag. I think there should be a separate line for those who checked in online...just a bag drop. It might go quicker."
Pros: "The flight itself was fine after it started. Plane is new."
Cons: "It was $10 less than the next cheapest flight but the $40 per checked bag, $25 carry on and tried to charge $5 to $17 more per seat. No refreshments except to buy. Was late because people had to pay at the gate. One poor woman dealing with angry customers. Horrible airline. Will not flight it again because it is NOT the lowest cost, just deceptive about it...and late."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Haven't left yet. Gouged on prices. Frontier can go die."
Pros: "I spoke with the clerk at the Frontier customer service desk in Denver about the baggage fees - she was no more welcoming than the baggage fees themselves. The exorbitant fee for a carry on was not disclosed anywhere online - I felt totally taken."
Cons: "Rediculous fees poor customer service"
Pros: "One of the ground staff really tried to be helpful."
Cons: "Frontiers cancelled flight cost us over 400.00 us. Supervisors were no where to be found. Excuse used was weather when reason was pilot strike so company could renig on any responsibility. Shame on you."
Cons: "Waited 40 minutes on the ground while we waited for our gate to open"
Pros: "Flight itself was fine."
Cons: "Delayed almost 3 hours, and an extra hour of the delay was because they didn't have enough flight attendants available. Over half of the Frontier flights leaving Denver that night were delayed by an hour or more. No snow or rain or wind to blame it on either, just poor planning and overall poor organization."
Pros: "While TSA made me late for my flight by 5 min after having arrived with more than enough time for any normal airport. They made sure I was on that flight and they were amazing! I would mark them down for the food and entertainment but it is a budget airline and I knew this going in. If you want a flight with the extras included you're gonna have to pay more for the ticket, so it all works out in the end to be the same. I upgraded to the package that included all my bags and seat selection and it was still cheaper than any other airline I looked at."
Cons: "This is not a reflection of Frontier but Orlando has been the worst TSA experience of my life and I am certain they have no idea what they are doing."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Luggage came out wrong carousel so was lost until I found. And I was not told I would be charged for carry on luggage."
Pros: "Price"
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable, not being able to take a free carry on snd it took a long time for lauggages to come."
Pros: "Flight didn't get delayed 3xs and 3 hrs like last time I flew Frontier."
Cons: "They changed gates only announcing it once - which I did not hear - and I nearly missed my flight. Others did!!! Extra charges for everything is "bait and switch"...."
Pros: "My God what an excruciating 3 hour endeavor. Kicks, screams, and all in the awful pitch of a little brat. Kid wouldn't sit down and wouldn't shut up. Flight was full so when I asked to move there were no other options. In all of the flights of my life, by far the worst experience."
Cons: "Price"
Pros: "The crew was very nice and the actual flight time was as advertised."
Cons: "Very long wait to check in for the flight to check 1 bag. Waited over 30 minutes in line. There were even 2 lines going and both were equally slow. This airline charges for carry-on's. It was cheaper to check 1 bag, but the wait was too long. Everyone was on board the plane and we had to wait 30 minutes to leave because "paper work" wasn't complete for the flight. This delay seemed unnecessary. Only water was complimentary on the flight."
Pros: "I arrived safely."
Cons: "Denver is the hub for Frontier. I expected better service out of Denver but we were delayed for mechanical difficulties. The Frontier personnel could have done a MUCH better job keeping us updated on the status of the flight."
Pros: "Nothing did not take flight. Will not pay for flight"
Cons: "Site automatically booked me on a return flight at a day & time I did not want. I was unable to stop the transaction. The airline would not credit the flight. So I chose another carrier & different flight. Called my credit company and have Declined the charge"
Pros: "Price couldn't be beat."
Cons: "They didn't do a very good job about letting me know carry on bags were charged."
Pros: "The crew is friendly and courteous."
Cons: "I don't like not being able to sit with the person I am flying with unless I pay extra money."
Pros: "It was worth it for family of seven, saved a bit of money over similar flights with Deltas."
Cons: "It was hard to sleep."
Pros: "Nothing about this airline I liked."
Cons: "I wasn't notified that the flight was cancelled until I got to the gate. Then I had to wait in the customer service line for 2 hours to be told I could get on a standby flight in the morning or get on a flight in the evening the next day. I would've missed the wedding at that rate. So I had to demand for a voucher and refund and pay 3 times the amount for a delta flight in the morning just to make the wedding."
Pros: "The website was a mess and I realized they had a phone number that I didn't enter and no email address despite how I did enter it when I purchased my tickets. So I didn't get any updates on the flight or prompt to check in. The website/Check-in process is confusing and full of bugs. Then when I boarded, they'd apparently assigned my seat to two people."
Cons: "Great flight attendants. Cheap sticker price (but no carry-on included."
Pros: "things went smoothly once the plane arrived and we were boarded"
Cons: "late flight, changed gate, name was screwed up on boarding pass (middle was part of first), a phone number that was not mine was in my phone info"
Cons: "No seat assignment!"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Late, expensive, poor service"
Pros: "Crew was wonderful and friendly."
Cons: "Frontier's website is very difficult to navigate. I tried to pay baggage fees ahead of time to save money, but it didnt go through and i ended up paying when i checked in and paid more. I will definitely fly with an airline that does not chage baggage or seat fees."
Pros: "The crew was extremely pleasant and accommodating. The seats did not look comfortable but in reality were very comfortable."
Cons: "The airplane had to wait at the end of the runway waiting for approval to take off."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and knowledgeable, and able to laugh at themselves when they forgot where we were landing. It was fun that they were able to laugh at themselves WITH us at that time. Nobody is perfect, but the crew was enjoyable!!"
Cons: "The usual... silly little kids in the seat in front that wasn't willing to keep his feet out of the isle and his game was on full volume for a while, until his caregiver told him to shut off the volume."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "An hour sitting in the plane before takeoff"
Cons: "Nothing is included in the price of your ticket! Flying used to be fun....people dressed up to fly and when you bought a ticket, everything was included, like a seat, bags and carry ons, drinks, pretty soon you will have to pay to use the restroom. It was enjoyable, now it is a dreaded experience."
Pros: "Lots of leg room on both flights which was nice. Flights were on time."
Cons: "Second plane's drink trays were barely big enough for a cell phone. Not sure why they were so small. Baggage fees were a bit higher than some other carriers."
Pros: "Available for purchase"
Cons: "I believe water (at the least) should be offered FREE of charge, and a snack packet or crackers."
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "was not clear when i booked the flight that their would be a charge for everything. There is a charge for all types of baggage except one personal item which you had to shove under the front seat which leaves you know leg room on a already squeezed seating error. So it was awful painful. Then they wanted to charge you for assignments which was never clear. They they wanted to charge you for any water or snack. I felt like they where going charge me for walking down the isle, using the bathroom, walking down the ramp. There customer is over seas and sucks. They service sucks. Frontier is the worst airline and I will never fly them again"
Pros: "Crew was nice, the interior of the Airbus was nice. I paid $20 for a seat up front with extra leg room, worth it! Something was broken at our gate, so we had to piggyback another flight at a gate down the hall. Also, there were very few operational charging stations in their gate area."
Cons: "I didn't realize that Frontier charges for a carry-on bag, free on most competitors. Because of this, I could have gotten a cheaper ticket on Delta or American and gotten FF miles!! I was told this information was on their website, but I didn't realize to look there as this was a surprise! I mind being treated this way, and in the future will most likely steer toward the major carriers, who seem to follow industry standards. No in-flight magazine, either. Bring something to read!"
Pros: "The flight attendants were polite."
Cons: "Delay announced of 2 1/2 hours, but posted at gate a delay of 2 hours. Passengers rushed on to plane at 9a, a 1 hour delay, then sat on plane until 10a. Plane taxied toward runway for takeoff, then recalled to gate to pick up a crew member. So, a 2 1/2 hour delay occurred anyway. A total clown show!"
Pros: "The pilot talked to us and kept us up to speed on what we were doing."
Pros: "I liked the fact that going forward, I know I will never have to fly Frontier Airlines again."
Cons: "I booked a flight with Frontier based purely on the price difference vs. flying a real airline. This was a huge mistake- due to weather in my connecting (not destination) city, I was told I would be stranded for the next 3.5 days. The only way to get to my destination was to book a flight on a different airline on less than 10 hours' notice. I am familiar with low cost airlines (Spirit domestically and RyanAir in Europe), but the entire experience was pathetic and made me seriously regret not paying a little extra up front to fly a real airline."
Cons: "They get you with the seemingly low fares but make up for it with obscene charges for everything from water to even a simple carry on. Then they make sure to squish as many people as possible in as they can with the thinnest, cheapest, least comfortable seats money can buy. I will only ever fly frontier again if it's my only option."
Pros: "I was not aware that both carry on AND checked bags incur a charge with Frontier. The only positive thing about this is that Frontier charges more to carry on a bag than to check a bag, so at least boarding was fast because most people checked their bags."
Cons: "They could have communicated 100 times better after the flight was turned around in-flight and they held us captive at the gate for three hours and then delayed the flight for twelve hours."
Cons: "Didn’t like The stupid crying baby for an hour of the flight."
Pros: "I have flown spirit airlines a few times Every time they are delayed and unorganized / inconsistent with charging fees for bags I don’t understand how they can always be so off target"
Cons: "Sitting in the plane for to long"
Pros: "It’s a direct flight"
Cons: "Not serving any drinks or snacks"
Pros: "Crew were nice."
Cons: "Didn’t eat food or have entertainment so that’s why those are low scores. Also had a screaming child for the beginning and end of the flight."
Pros: "Good experience. No Issues. Baggage claim was quick."
Cons: "Temperature was too cold inside the airplane."
Cons: "Someone from flight network called me the day before my trip asking for personal information. I hung up on him."
Pros: "Quick boarding!! Very efficient!"
Cons: "High fee to carry one bag on. No phone charger at seat. that would be a plus! That's why I rated a 1 on entertainment. There was none. 1 on good. there iwas none. Should have option of n/a."
Pros: "Cheap flight, nice flight attendants"
Cons: "Somewhat uncomfortable: no pocket behind front seat, just bungee cords. They charge for water. There is no entertainment at all. No movie, no magazine, no radio, not even funny announcements."
Pros: "Smooth boarding process"
Cons: "Flight delayed by 25 mins"
Cons: "Major delay - ended up switching flights for the following day."
Pros: "Simple"
Cons: "No bevs and extra for carry on bookbag. Ultimately Would've paid the same for delta."
Cons: "You can't even offer water on a flight without charging?! That's a little ridiculous"
Cons: "Flight delayed 3 hours and nowhere to sit inside security way overcrowded"
Cons: "Unexplained delays. Then finally someone says the pilots haven't arrived. They still decided to board us, but apparently they couldn't turn on the air until the pilots arrive, so we cook in there, not knowing how long this will go on. Finally, the pilots arrived. Air turns on, but still we wait. And wait and wait, all the while Spirit sends me a total of FOURTEEN delayed takeoff and arrival emails. As if I couldn't already get the gist sitting on the plane waiting waiting waiting. Finally, we get rolling, but never is there any acknowledgment that we've been waiting or that they're sorry for the continued delays or something nice yadayadayada. Last Spirit flight I'll take."
Pros: "Flight was smooth."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "Great crew and helpful people at the check-in, etc. My bags were ready for me during the interim time of the original flight and its rescheduled time."
Cons: "Weather problems first delayed the flight a couple of times and after a long long period of waiting in the airport it was cancelled. No control over the weather. However- with a only single Spirit representative person at at the counter helping all the others similarly affected- I waited about 2 hours in a very long line to have my flight rescheduled for 30 hours later. She was very professional. So, there was not enough staff to handle the problem and there were not enough planes or other flight options to handle the problem in a timely fashion. A 2 and 1/2 flight took me about 30 hours. Spirit works when it works... great for short flights, ususally! But it sure did not work for me this time and I will never fly Spirit if there is any time constraints or I can see any potential problems with getting to where I need to be in a timely and comfortable fashion."
Cons: "Delayed 2 hours because of a "late crew." Was also delayed on first flight to Chicago."
Pros: "Cost is almost always at least $20 lower than any other airline!"
Cons: "Just can't expect much, any extra bags or choices on seats increase the cost and all drinks and snacks cost extra as well. Honestly if you want any of those things it defeats the purpose of the cheaper ticket."
Pros: "The friendly crew on the plane, it was my first time flying where the flight attendant was funny and informative and they also had a drawing for miles."
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Smooth landing."
Cons: "Switched gates at last minute, plane was late, pilot made up time in air."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Waiting around for hours only to find out they cancelled our flight and offered no help in find us a way home. Wasn't given a hotel room, wasn't given food voucher, wasn't given any help what so ever in how to get home. Pretty much said the flight is cancelled - good luck - we will reimburse you. That's all! Horrible!!"
Cons: "Didn't offer another flight same day, boards at airport weren't updated with proper information"
Pros: "Flight attendants were pleasant."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 40 minutes on the way to our destination and over an hour on the way back. Seats did not recline at all and are small. I waited for finding the least expensive flight and found that every bag whether carry on or checked bag has a cost. It costs to print out your boarding pass from the airport. Once your boarding pass is purchased you then have to pay for a seat on the flight. If you want a snack there is a fee attached. So much for a less expensive flight. It would have cost less to go through an airline that combines everything and they would have had some entertainment for a 3 hour and 40 minute flight."
Pros: "Flight was very crowded, gate changed twice for departure, flight delayed 15 minutes, trash was in seat area, and I ended up getting a bad chest infection from flying with spirit."
Pros: "Boarding went well. Crew had a tough day but we're still pleasant and very fun!!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours"
Cons: "This is the second time I have been sent this review form, which is irritating just by itself. I will say again, however, that I was disgusted to be hit with a $50.00 per bag charge for checked luggage with absolutely no forewarning. So on top of over $600.00 tickets to visit grandparents, I had an additional $200 in baggage charges for the trip that I had no idea was coming. I blame both the airline and KAYAK for this sneaky, hidden fee. I will never use Spirit or KAYAK again."
Pros: "flight attendants were very friendly and professional."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The price I paid for my bags custom service all the fees and they haven't called me back like they said the would. Customer service in the airport was poor as well"
Cons: "No water served"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The policy for paying for carry on baggage is confusing because you can carry on the same weight and cubic inches as baggage that you have to pay for as long as it is two parcels instead of just one. I will not be flying Spirit again"
Cons: "Night flight that didn't offer blankets or pillows and it was freezing in sweater and jeans. Flight attendants and other passengers also reported it being extremely cold. Could not sleep on plane from midnight to 5am because I was shivering so much...."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and not supporting crew were not polit very unpleasant"
Pros: "Flight was delayed. Could of been better"
Cons: "Delay of flight"
Pros: "Liked the affordable ticket price"
Cons: "The affordable ticket price was overblown by the huge baggage fees. Would have been cheaper and better to go with a "real" airline!"
Pros: "Crew and flight was very good"
Cons: "This was the second time I flew to MN with Spirit first time my return was cancelled and this time was delayed by an hours and delayed take off and delayed at Ohare"
Pros: "It is cheap."
Cons: "My first flight was cancelled, I was fortunate to get on a second flight, but it was supposed to leave at around 7pm and kept getting delayed and we had to waif for a new captain and finally left at past 11:00 getting into Minneapolis at past midnight. I therefore had to take a taxi to my hotel with whom I had .been communicating all night. The hotel rewarded me with free internet, that was cool. It was totally not their fault. The bottom line is Spirit did a few things wrong (the weather is not their fault): they didn't communicate well with us at all - no one knew what was going. I don't think there was good communication with in the Spirit staff. For example twice we were told to prepare to board, people lined up and then were told - once the plane was suddenly cancelled and the second time, that we had to switch gates and the third time that we had to wait for a captain. Maybe they should have more pilots on staff."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight was delayed several hours. The staff did not inform us of the several delays. Only notification that was given was a gate change. We didn't have a pilot so we sat in the plane forever. Horrible service, but u get what u pay for with with spirit. Learned my lesson and will pay little extra to not fly spirit airlines."
Cons: "Will never fly Spirit again"
Pros: "The flight attendants! They were funny and very helpful."
Cons: "The plane smelled like someone had defecated in their own pants for the entire ride. To purchase a soft drink and pay for a carry on are fees I was not prepared for. It would have been cheaper for me to fly with another airline. It was very cramped as well, felt like the person next to me and in front of me were on top of me."
Pros: "From airport to airport it was very good, more than I expected."
Cons: "The internet site. I went crazy trying to check in a bag and was ready to have to pay big bucks at the airport because there was no evident place to add a bag. I booked through Kayak and wasn't aware of your baggage policy. After the website I said to myself, "If I get through this flight without getting fleeced Ill be happy." and "Never again." but the flight istself was a pleasant surprise."
Pros: "It was really nice . Though I was a bit late but everybody there was very cooperative and managed me to grab the flight . Much appreciated."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Not the best experience. Your airline is awful!"
Pros: "Flight was 4 1/2 hours late. Seats don't recline, but otherwise would have been comfortable. No drinks, snack or anything. Do not recommend."
Cons: "Everything but especially the flight attendants who spent most of the flight in a very loud conversation in the back"
Pros: "Everything."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "I'd like to thank Joni in customer service/baggage claim in MSP for locating and calling me about my son's lost iPad, as he left it on the flight in the seat back. She was fantastic!"
Cons: "I booked through Kayak, so I didn't know there would be extra charges for checking bags or carry-ons. Flight was delayed 20-30 min. Limited legroom for me (I'm 6'2''). Staff was courteous and flight went smoothly otherwise, I would fly Spirit again."
Pros: "Most of the crew was nice, with a couple exceptions. Overall it was a decent experience."
Cons: "Plane was supposed to board at 2:45, but didn't even arrive at the gate until after 3:00, and still had to unload. We were finally on board by 3:30 (departure time) but the pilot blamed it on getting the paperwork late, and said we now had to wait for fuel. During that time, a couple storms moved in, and we ended up sitting on the tarmac for over an hour. It's one thing to be late, but it was a pretty pathetic attempt to divert blame to the crew at the airport."
Cons: "It was a complete JOKE! Spirit was delayed from Minneapolis to Phoenix because the Pilot over slept? Really? Delayed for 3 hours and that is unacceptable! From Phoenix to Minneapolis it was delayed 30 minutes and I missed my shuttle from Minneapolis to Eau Claire! I will NEVER fly Spirit again."
