Airline reviews

Cons: "not the cleanest seat/tray table"

Pros: "FA were ok"
Cons: "No entertainment"

Pros: "The crew was a replacement for the original crew that probably was running late (i suspect because everyone was stuck in wonderful LA traffic that night), they made do with what they have and tried to get everyone boarded as fast as they can."
Cons: "On time departures, better boarding, crowded planes, better snacks, comfy seats, charging bagss???"

Pros: "The TV"

Pros: "Everything but the consistent delay"
Cons: "2 hour delay and it being the last flight out of LAX."

Pros: "There was a medical emergency and the crew responded quickly and asked for onboard medical personnels. Wi-Fi was fast."
Cons: "Lack of snacks."

Pros: "Had to sit in the middle row and I wasn’t given the option to get an aisle sit during check in."
Cons: "No flexibility for seats"

Pros: "The snack variety"
Cons: "My headphone jack was broken :("

Pros: "Was able to comfortably sleep the whole trip back."
Cons: "Nothing, just filling this in to continue........."

Pros: "Crew and being able to watch movies."
Cons: "Cost of flight"

Pros: "I liked the selection of movies."
Cons: "The arrival estimate was off."

Cons: "The Delta team is a complete mess. After sending us to the wrong terminal via their own app, we missed our first flights. Then we had to be pushy to get onto the next flight."

Pros: "We were two for two on not being able to understand the gate agents announcements. Please keep in mind that not everyone flies frequently. I'm convinced that the routine of the job blinds both the TSA and airline employees to this fact. Clear and concise instructions would be great, regulars will continue to ignore you. So no harm, no foul."

Cons: "nothing"

Cons: "While there was plenty of space on the aircraft, I was forced to gate check my carry on."

Pros: "Lincoln ground staff is top notch. Friendly Midwest people."

Pros: "On Time"

Pros: "On Time"

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: "My first and last time flying Delta! Everything that could have went wrong, did in fact go wrong. We were re-booked on connecting flights different then the one we originally booked and weren't even notified. They have a Delta app, but it doesn't even work right. Unless you physically go to the gate to check to see if the flight is on time, that is the only was to find out if you are re-booked onto a different flight or not. I have never flown an airline that re-books you on a different flight when they feel like it. I wouldn't recommend Delta Airlines to my worse enemy!"

Pros: "The entertainment was good and we didn't get charged for the blankets, as in other airlines, though it would have been nice not have needed them, the plane felt colder than 70 degrees!"
Cons: "Longer delay occurred when another passenger got into an argument with staff. It took soooo long for security to come to fix the situation so we could continue boarding. We were also packed in like sardines. I would pay more for more room, though business and first class are available, they're way too much."

Cons: "Some of the video I was watching on my personal screen was low quality. Difficult to hear and kept breaking up/freezing so I would miss important words. At one point I had to rewind it because I had missed something important. Captions were not available for the movie I was watching."

Pros: "on time. great flight attendnant"

Pros: "The plane got me & my family safely to our destinations. Easy & fast check-in."
Cons: "Flight delays on both departing & return flights to Los Angeles. Delta didn't offer any compensation for the delays. Crew was not very friendly especially on my return flight. The flight attendant couldn't even give me a bag of peanuts."

Pros: "My Delta flight was a code share with Virgin Atlantic. A pleasant flight overall with my first impression being an airline with current popular music playing in the background and flight attendants cheerful. Since I was traveling alone, I opted to not purchase my seat prior to my flight date, instead I chose my aisle seat within 24 hours for free. I checked in my one bag and found out I had pre-checked so my security check went so smooth at the new terminal 2 at LAX. Looking forward to my flight back on June 15."
Cons: "Had a toddler behind me crying and screaming the last 40 minutes of landing into Heathrow because she couldn't sit on her mother's lap and made it quite unbareable for all of us in the vicinity. Wondering if there was an alternative way to handle the situation."

Pros: "Clean & new aircraft. Good selection for entertainment."
Cons: "Seating & booking was chaotic. Flight delayed."

Pros: "Smooth. Great Staff"
Cons: "No complaints."

Cons: "No space."

Pros: "Meal quality has improved"

Pros: "Nice and Easy. Great service before during and after the flight."
Cons: "Not being able to choose a seat with basic economy during online check-in. With all the issues about seating nowadays you definitely want to know you have a seat going on."

Cons: "Usable to hear gate agent announcement in LAX"

Pros: "Airtravel is not exactly something to 'LIKE' but it was good."
Cons: "Attendant was a bit forgetful, didn't get my or my daughters drinks straight. She took forever to take the order too and was using a phone or something to type the order in and STILL got it wrong!"

Pros: "Great crew and prompt service. We left and arrived exactky when it said we would."
Cons: "Snacks could have been a bit better but that's not a deal breaker."

Cons: "You lost our luggage. What I don't understand is why we were not able to get boarding passes and seat assignments when we did our check-in in Sydney."

Cons: "My luggage is lost. I picked it up in LAX and reboarded. It never arrived to MSP. My wife's luggage was also lost but they found it on another flight. They have no clue where mine is."

Pros: "What they offer is OK."

Pros: "food was surprisingly good."
Cons: "the flatbed seat is very narrow and not comfortable. The crew took a long time to remove plates after the meal was eaten."

Pros: "Blankets"

Cons: "The entertainment system was extremely difficult to deal with. The screen did not seem receptive to the human finger and often the menu lines were small and very close together, leading to the incorrect item being selected. Finally I gave up and was just trying to put on "my flight", but it just made me take survey after survey, instead of allowing me access to "my flight" information."

Pros: "Delta treats diamond medallion members better than any other airlines treats their elite members"
Cons: "No in seat entertainment"

Cons: "plane had to go back to the gate to lose 1500 pounds. cant they calculate this while loading?"

Pros: "Ticket agent upon checkin was super friendly. Great way to start my long flight to Singapore. Departed and arrived on time."

Pros: "This flight was very smooth sailing, and I loved the fact I had an option to watch a movie, and the crew were very nice."

Pros: "FOR A BUSY AIRPORT IT WAS A FRIENDLY SERVICE DAY"
Cons: "NOTHING IT WAS GOOD AND THANK YOU"

Pros: "Flight was smooth once it finally left."
Cons: "Plane was delayed coming in, due to mechanical reasons. So I missed my connection and had to take the later flight. Ended up sitting in Minneapolis for 5 hours waiting for my flight. Had to cancel my rental car cause they close at 8 and my new flight didn't get in til after 9. Because of that I had to have my parents drive 2 hours at night in the snow to pick me up. I booked this flight months ago and had everything set so it would be smooth, but it turned into an all day ordeal that Delta offered nothing more then a, sorry for your inconvenience."

Pros: "Despite efforts of most airlines in America it seems like they can't get it together like the foreign ones. ..I've very recently flown vigrin, garuda, malindo, and Cathay and they are miles above in service and comfort."

Cons: "Flight was an hour late getting into Raleigh, so an hour late leaving Raleigh for MSP. That gave barely enough time to hurry straight to the gate for the MSP to MSO flight."

Pros: "Great costumer service"

Pros: "Smooth, quiet"
Cons: "N/a"

Cons: "Sun Country has confusing regulations about what is and is not oversize baggage."

Pros: "Crew was very nice and helpful. Lots of leg room"
Cons: "The flight departed 30 minutes late."

Pros: "Excellent crew. Friendly, accommodating."

Pros: "Sun Country is the best airline in the world -"

Pros: "Staff was great! Boarding was fast! Flight was quick. The price made the lack of internet, no food, and not so comfortable seats worth it."
Cons: "No internet! I would rather pay for internet than the entertainment console they offered for $8. The seats were really uncomfortable. Bathrooms were constantly crowded. No complimentary food was provided. I supposed"

Cons: "I wasn't able to check in online for my outgoing or incoming flight, which added to the stress of travel. The actual flight was fine though."

Pros: "Good prices, good friendly crew, arrived at least a 1/2 hour earlier than we were supposed to..overall excellent"
Cons: "Better snack selection other than that it was an excellent experience"

Pros: "I am a large woman and they were so kind in helping me with those embarrassing issues like needing an extender descretely. The ladies were professional and personal. I really appreciated them."
Cons: "As a general idea for Sun country maybe have a Google map up to see where we are. Maybe it's a bad idea but I love looking out the window and knowing."

Pros: "The flight had to make an emergency landing. I understand the stress that can have, but we kept being told different things, the people that waited patiently ended up getting the short end and sat around all day. When we were told we would know more in 5 minutes, that took 25, when we were told we would know more and to keep sitting there in the small area we would know more in about 20 minutes, it too 45."
Cons: "Kept being misdirected."

Pros: "The best part, the person booking my seat at the counter, looked at my height and said, "aisle seat." I am eternally grateful. Air travel is so limited and so many corners cut, that a small gesture like that goes a very long way."
Cons: "The short connection times made me nervous, but never missed a flight. Hated not having free inflight entertainment."

Pros: "The whole flight overall was great thanks"

Pros: "The flight was fine. Uneventful which is wonderful. I did not eat & did not utilize the entertainment so can not comment on those items."
Cons: "My only comment is that a child was using an electronic device during the flight without headphones. It would have been appreciated if the attendants could have suggested earbuds, headphones, or at least asked that the volume be decreased out of respect for other passengers."

Pros: "Excellent price and it wasn't over booked. The flight had no food so I can't give it a 5star rating (sorry)...."

Pros: "Staff was cheerful and pleasant. Plane was clean. Most importantly, the baggage fees were modest, making the "value fare" an excellent value!"
Cons: "no negatives"

Pros: "Their alcoholic options are much better than Delta. The flight from LAX to MSP was quite smooth, only a couple instances of turbulence."
Cons: "My known traveler number did not sync with my ticket, so I couldn't go in the TSA pre check line."

Pros: "Crew are very pleasant and helpful."
Cons: "Cheeseburger is not very tasty."

Pros: "Courteous friendly staff"
Cons: "Lines at lax"

Cons: "ON MY WAY BACK HOME FROM MSP AIRPORT. I GOT TO THE AIRPORT AT 2:10 PM MY FLIGHT IS AT 3:05 PM. I GOT TO THE COUNTER TO CHECK IN TO MY FLIGHT THE PERSON BEHIND THE COUNTER IS TELLING ME THAT YOU CANT CHECK IN YOU ARE LATE FOR YOUR FLIGHT. I TOLD THEM I CALLED LAST NIGHT TO CHOOSE MY SEAT I HAD CHECK IN AND THAY ARE TELLING ME NO YOU DID NOT CHECK IN. I TOLD THEM I HAVE ONE HOUR BEFORE MY FLIGHT HOW AM I LATE!! I TALKED TO THE MANAGER AND SHE IS TELLING ME THE FLIGHT IS LEAVING 10 MINUTES EARLY. I TOLD THEM NO ONE INFORMED ME THAT THE FLIGHT IS LEAVING EARLY. THEY DIDN'T LET ME GET ON MY FLIGHT. I WAS AT THE AIRPORT ONE HOUR BEFORE MY FLIGHT. I HAD TO TAKE ANOTHER FLIGHT TO SAN FRANCISCO THAN PAY $300 FOR A FLIGHT BACK TO LOS ANGELES. I REPORT THIS AIRLINE TO THE BETTER BUSINESS BUREAU BECAUSE THAT IS A JOKE I GOT TO THE AIRPORT 1 HOUR BEFORE MY FLIGHT AND I CANT GET ON."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Seat"

Pros: "clean plane and legroom good, esp. for tall person."
Cons: "On return flight, gates changed without any announcement. About 1/2 hour before return flight boarded they announced there would be no bathrooms on flight available. This would have been prohibitive for me flying that flight. Situation was rectified and they got two bathrooms working but it caused a great deal of undue stress. Is flying without facilities even legal?"

Pros: "Nothing"

Pros: "Everything was expeditious, staff was courteous and the flight went smooth. Thanks Sun Country Air!"

Pros: "the flight was timely"
Cons: "crowded. A lot of additional expenses for luggage, seat assignment, food, entertainment, etc."

Pros: "The crew were very helpful and pleasant. I was very satisfied."

Cons: "Rude customer service, dirty planes, and late."

Cons: "Sharing a single gate with 3 airlines leaving at the same time is I'm sure not what anyone wants. Departing time was supposed to be at 1210, instead we took a bus to I think Mexico to board the plane then we taxied the plane all the way back to LAX and took off at 218 (well documented time). I was late for work so I was let go, my wife left me and took our 4 sort of intelligent kids with her. I'm just glad I could write this review before my phone services are shut down do to lack of funds. At the end of the day things could have been worse but I'll survive. "Just keep swimming"-Dory"

Pros: "Boarding pretty swift."
Cons: "Offering of flights. Only two flights offered, and time between is way to long!! One that leaves at 1pm, and then a red eye 11:45pm? Not ok."

Pros: "Short lines and prompt check-in. Flights took off and landed on time. Lots of young kids but generally quiet. "Budget" airlines like Sun Country and Southwest have separate Humphrey terminal but it is less crowded and easy to navigate."

Pros: "Ontime flight departure"

Cons: "Staff managed to spend almost the whole trip passing out drinks/snacks. Like, does it really take 3.5 hours to do that? Maybe it does. Announcements were informal - really felt like we were on a training flight. Staff wasn't helping people with bags or to find their seats like other airlines do. Maybe this more relaxed atmosphere is why the prices are lower? If so, that's fine with me - but doesn't seem like you're gunning to attract more business or be anything other than the airline in between the disgusting model of Spirit and the lame cost-cutting of major airlines. Like, innovation is only possible via dissension, and I'm sure your business is having the same troubles with idiot senior leaders as every other US corporate business is, but if you're going to ask for feedback, the feedback is stop being so blah and stand for something other than your Board. Plenty of ideas out there - stop being so pro-short term profit and start having some fun!"

Pros: "Small terminal"
Cons: "7 hour delay"

Cons: "This covers two flights - Neither left on time, neither got to the gate on time. Once the bags took 30 minutes to get to the carousel, the other time staff gave wrong carousel and several passengers sat waiting. Rude flight attendants have no desire to actually serve on-board. The entire plane smells like the McDonald's dumpster that they fish their "Cheeseburgers" out of. Nothing good to say about the entire experience and I will never fly them again. Word of advice to all flight attendants working for Sun Country: Fly somewhere as a PASSENGER on Delta and see how it's done. Take notes.....lots of them."

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Late arrival. Circling MSP due to weather"

Pros: "The luggage fee is reasonable. The flight was on-time. Spacious seat."
Cons: "The luggage fee is cheaper when paid on-line, but when I tried to pay on-line, an error message popped up. I ended up paying at the registered desk which is $10 more."

Pros: "Low-brow but budget-friendly... I had a wedding and had to be in Minneapolis for 48 hours... I got what I paid for... low budget experience."
Cons: "Everything was ho-hum and cheap."

Pros: "the pilot seemed very nice and had a good sense of humor."
Cons: "It took a long time to get through ticketing as the line was long and there was only one person for the "non elite" passengers. The crew seemed nice except for one woman who seemed grumpy Overall excellent value for the flight. Thank you"

Pros: "Seats are roomy and comfortable, two beverage services are nice on a long flight so those who are napping get two chances."
Cons: "Boarding process was confusing, but it makes sense to board the back first."

Pros: "The flight attendants were warm, friendly, and relaxed. Smooth landings!"

Pros: "Everyone was nice, professional, normal and efficient. Got a great price on my ticket."

Pros: "Left on time and got in on time."

Pros: "Snack Food selection was good and fairly priced. Free drink service and friendly crew. TSA pre -check. Exit seating was comfortable."
Cons: "Paying for my checked bag, seat, and entertainment. No free snack."

Pros: "Arrived and boarded on time. Although it was a crowded flight, the flight crew assisted in making the flight comfortable."
Cons: "I was pressed for time and they offered to check my carry on for free, but I had to wait at baggage claim for 20 minutes."

Pros: "no problems all the crew were nice the people in front of me did not recline"

Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "The plane was late to begin with. Once we got on we had to sit for about 30 minutes due to a mechanical issue. After that there was another issue that caused us all to get off the plane. Then we were stuck in the tunnel between the plane and the terminal for about 20 minutes. Once we got off we had to get back on about ten minutes later and we were rushed. I got so sick because of all of the stress and moving around I threw up on the plane and getting off. All over my clothes and shoes and luggage. I had a very bad experience."

Cons: "Flight delayed almost 3 hours, we were waiting on the plane the entire time, with stale air and limited information. I missed the holiday party I was coming home for."

Cons: "It was 2 hours delayed"

Pros: "There weren't any entertainment options that I was aware of. Flight was to short for food service and I didn't order food. The leg space was excellent - wasn't expecting that. The flight was smooth and relaxing."

Pros: "1st time heard about this airline, good experience."

Pros: "Awesome customer service by all."

Pros: "Lack of people on flight"
Cons: "The idiots who take 5 mins to get their bag in the overhead bin"

Pros: "The flight was on time. Crew was fine, but I had limited interaction with them."

Pros: "The crew were very attentive!"
Cons: "The seat were so noticablly uncomfortable that the entire flying experience was tainted."

Pros: "Cheap ticket."
Cons: "2 hour delay, packed flight."

Pros: "Crew was first rate..."
Cons: "One hour late taking off but understandable..."

Cons: "Apparently Frontier doesn’t have partnerships with a lot of airlines which meant I had to get my bags, tote them halfway across the country and check them with the airline my connecting flight was on. Since I had a torn ligament in my knee and the connecting flight was in a different terminal, plus having to pay the baggage fees a second time this was less than an acceptable solution for getting my luggage on to the next airplane."

Pros: "It was a direct flight."
Cons: "Delayed flight...aaargh"

Cons: "Unexplained delay is not ok."

Pros: "The extra fees for checking baggage was a surprise, but the air fares was cheaper than the other airlines."

Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Frontier flight delayed and online support was not helpful. Frontier not willing to hold connecting Frontier flight. Had to sprint to make the connection within the two minutes left to board. The seats were also very uncomfortable."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Staff was unpleasant. Uncomfortable seats."

Cons: "Carry on bag cost of $45."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Seemed like a good price until I booked and then had to pay for add on such as a carry on piece of luggage. They also gave a sales pitch onboard about "their" credit card. Seats were crowded and uncomfortable. The flight attendants seemed as if they would have rather been anywhere but helping passengers. Both flights were late not due to weather. After booking this flight with all of the ad ons, I found I could have flown Sun Country or Delta for less - and next time I will use another airline."

Pros: "Lots of leg room"
Cons: "Seats could be more comfortable"

Pros: "The flight arrived 40 minutes early."
Cons: "I paid $40 for a carry on. The plane was not pressurized, I've never had my ears hurt to bad on a plane."

Cons: "I use to love Frontier back in 2006-2008. I purposely booked the trip on Frontier as they were known to be clean and comfortable. Much to my surprise the plane was very very small, the seats did not recline at all (horrible for an overnight flight) and the trays were so small I couldn't even fit my laptop on it."

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"

Cons: "I had to wait over an hour to get my bag at the San Francisco airport"

Cons: "I did not like that the airline did a horrible job informing the passengers what was going on after realizing that the original plane had "mechanical problems.""

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: "The attendants and the crew were very sympathetic and did everything in their power to accommodate the passages due to the delay."
Cons: "Waiting in the airport from 7 am to 2 pm due to multiple flight delays. I had a short trip and the first day would have allowed time to sight see before the conference. We arrived to late in the evening to visit any sights."

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "crew was rude and very unprofessional spent 30 minutes taxing before take off (probably wasn't their fault but annoying) landed on time but only deplaned 40 minutes after we landed they have no snacks on board, or rather should i say they sell everything and its all pricey there is very little leg room, very uncomfortable flight"

Pros: "Nothing. Will avoid frontier at all costs. I'm looking at cancelling my frontier return and rebooking with literally anybody else"
Cons: "Was delayed, no food/drinks in terminal. Very uncomfortable seat. Extra charge for everything. Was not able to understand the safety speech the flight attendant did... Kind of concerning"

Cons: "Email notification of a 3 hour flight delay 2 hours before flight but I was already on my way to the airport. Then the flight gets cancelled but no email notification was sent and the screen wasn't updated at the gate (the whole time I was there). If I hadn't come back to the gate during the long delay and asked a fellow passenger why they were in line, I wouldn't have known it was cancelled for a long time. The employees at the gate were helpful in refunding our tickets, etc. but overall, not happy with my experience with Frontier Airlines."

Pros: "Wellllllll it didn't crash I guess that's about it"
Cons: "An hr delay, only one working bathroom, rude staff, late 45min wait for checked bag. Overall got to my destination in Denver about 2 hrs late."

Pros: "The flight was relatively short, and once we boarded we moved out pretty quickly. Bags were delivered quickly as well at the end of the flight"
Cons: "THe flight was delayed by close to two hours, but more surprising was the amount of extraunexpected money we had to spend for basics-close to $30.00 each to "pick" seats, $130.00 each for baggage (yes you have to pay for any luggage beyond one personal item like a purse), money for food, etc. There are not even basics on the lfight such as blankets, and the seats don't recline. Overall, not an airline I would choose again as the "bargain" price turns out to be full of hidden costs that weren't clearly explained upfront"

Pros: "They nervously switched us to a new plane when they couldn't fix the first one."
Cons: "No food, not even a magazine to read on the 4 hour flight. Both of my flights were delayed without any prior warning, so I was sat in the airport for hours waiting for them to extent the delay (which they did several times on my way to my destination). Avoiding Fronier in the future."

Cons: "Flight delayed over 6 hours and they still charged an arm and leg for everything"

Cons: "Seats did not recline and were very uncomfortable. Couldn't believe you had to buy your drinks. No snacks. By the time that I paid all the a'lacart it cost me more than a flight with Delta or Southwest. Will not be flying Frontier again."

Cons: "The online price was competitive, but it was bait and switch, because I had to pay an additional $90 for a single overhead bag, round trip."

Cons: "Sat on runway for 40 min after landing in what otherwise was a good flight."

Pros: "That I'll never have to fly with Frontier again."
Cons: "Customer service Lost bag Comfort Fees"

Pros: "the flight was cancelled after being delayed for 4 hours. it was delayed because "many passengers booked the flight", and then it was cancelled because the window crack was found. fronter did not partner with other arilines, so the next one was available in 3 days. i had to cancel my whole flight and book last-minute flight with United and left in an hour. I had to pay $1000 extra for this flight. Frontier really ruined my day and my finanicals."

Pros: "Nothing!"
Cons: "Delayed 3 hours, then told flight was cancelled! Frontier did nothing for passengers! Return flight had over 2 hour delay! We changed carrier and had no problems. Will never fly Frontier again!"

Pros: "Nothing!"
Cons: "Everything! Had to pay $40 for a carry-on, $35 to pick my seats in advance, $35 to check a bag, over 110 in fees before I got on plane. $2 for a Coke- water was free but they were rude when you asked for it. No tray tables, seats didn't recline, Felt like I was on a bad school bus."

Pros: "There was a flight delay due to bad weather and since I would miss my connection, I had to be rebooked onto another flight. The whole process of rebooking was tedious and annoying"
Cons: "The customer service and the airline staff."

Pros: "Not much. The crew was fine. Also customer service people I spoke with were good. One was excellent. Seats themselves are comfortable but the closeness of the rows is horrible! NO ROOM!"
Cons: "I cannot stand the fee structure of charging more than any other airline for EVERYHING! $60 to pay for one carry on bag if it is at the gate!!! You guys are simply mercenary. It looks like others hate this also from the reviews I can see. Your fares are not less! to justify the additional charges! LEG ROOM WAS LESS THAN ON ANY OTHER FLIGHT I HAVE EVER TAKEN. I have never been so squashed in a plane. I will not fly frontier again if I can help it."

Pros: "Crew and how fast the flight was."
Cons: "Baggage fees, seat comfort, temperature of plane,"

Cons: "You have to pay for everything. Tried to charge me for a computer bag coming into plain although we are allowed one person item I should be comped flights. Due to this horrible experience."

Cons: "Lots of delays"

Pros: "I was easliy checked in"
Cons: "It was more then an hr late The plabe shook all the ride long It felt terribly unstable"

Cons: "I spent the entire day in the airport b/c they strung us along 2 hours at time. Then when the plane was finally ready they had to get a new staff for the plane and delayed us another 4 hours. Couldn't they have planned ahead and found a staff before the plane was ready?!? Or if they had just told us upfront the repair was going to take 8-12 hours we could have made use of our day. Losing a whole day of productivity when you own a small business is catastrophic. Frontier really screwed me over."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Cons: "Service is tribble and I don't have a any plan to fly to frontier"

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Paying to sit next to my husband, delayed, got in late and had to sit there for another 45 minutes so instead of getting off at 7:30 it was about 10:00. Crew was rude and pushy and the tray tables were half the size of normal airplane tables."

Pros: "flight takeoff and landing on time---- waited 35 minutes for bags"

Pros: "As a shorter person, I found the seats to be comfortable (my feet could sit flat on the ground). My husband, who is a foot taller than I am found the seats to be uncomfortable. The flight took off on time and we arrived earlier than expected."
Cons: "When we booked this flight through Kayak, we weren't made aware of all the extra fees. So imagine my surprise when I checked in online 24 hours before our flight. Frontier tries to get customers to pay extra for seats. Some seats have more leg room, so I can see people might be willing to pay extra for them. However other seats were not special in any way but they wanted to charge $16/seat. All clickable seat choices were extra, and no where on the page was it indicated that you did not have to actually choose a seat. I deciced to just not pick any seats and continue to the next screen to see what would happen. A pop up window comes up warning that if I don't pick seats, my party would be assigned random seats and may not be able to sit together. Wouldn't have been a problem for us and as it turns out we were assigned seats together. Then you must indicate how many carry ons and/or checked bags each person will have. I figured we'd each have 1 carry on until I saw Frontier charges $40/carry on! Decided instead to do 1 checked bag, for which they charged $35. Then on the flight, you have to pay $1.99 for any beverages besides water. Alcohol was of course more. Ridiculous to make people pay on the plane for soda or juice. If we had paid for the seats and 1 carry on/person we would have paid an additional $168 (not including inflight beverages). Just not worth it for the level of service. I will be sticking to Southwest Airlines, thank you very much!"

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "I did not like the carry on fees of $45 per bag. Flight 1365 had some rude stewardess who in my opinion has something against Asian people. The plane landed in the wrong terminal. Taxi'ing took a long time. the seats aren't adjustable ."

Cons: "I was not aware until I arrived at the airport that I needed to pay for a carry-on bag. Frontier did not do a good job of making this known to me before then."

Cons: "No drinks like coffee provided free"

Pros: "Basic ticket price with no luggage or seat selection is cheap. Boarding started late but went quickly."
Cons: "Nickeled and dimed for everything on frontier, i.e.: choose your seat, carry-on luggage, beverage, etc. I'll only consider them for short flights. Didn't have much interaction with them with no luggage and no beverage - not much to say there."

Pros: "The seats on spirit are AWFUL. Get an exit row if you can"
Cons: "Seats are awful. No entertainment. You have to pay for everything including water."

Pros: "The plane was very new. Crew was great."
Cons: "Nothing to drink on the plane. 4 hours with no water."

Pros: "Lines went fast, and service was okay drink menu (alcohol ) was decent"
Cons: "Baggage charge was outrageous, and you have to pay for a carry on. Only 40 lb limit on a fifty dollar checked bag. Nothing was free, I had to give in buy two bottles of water for 5 dollars. Beverages should come free. Even if it's just water. Healthier snack options would of been nice"

Cons: "I don't like that there are no complimentary beverages and that everything costs extra."

Pros: "The entertainment was very good from the stewardesses"
Cons: "I came in to Los Angeles LAX to board spirit proceeded to contact a spirit checker I am going to assume he was tired was very rude he was in a conversation with another passenger for whatever reason he was not happy once the conversation was over I approached him to ask him about the flight to Minnesota is this the right gate he basically said am I going to Denver I said no to Minnesota he said if you're not going to Denver you need to go and sit down I asked him I needed to know if this was the gate I need to be at again he stated go to a different spirit checker and asked them me and the people behind me just look at each other .very unprofessional I was just as tired and frustrated as he was for whatever reason he was frustrated and keep in mind please I had my one year-old and was trying to check in the stroller and the car seat"

Pros: "Cancelation policy first time using your company . Never again! Have told everyone I know not to use your sight. 0000000 sucks!"

Cons: "We waited for an hour after landing before we could deplane. There were also hidden fees for carryon luggage, checked luggage, and choosing your seat."

Pros: "Nothing bad happened but it is the most bear bones expirience you can get."
Cons: "Not cheap like it looked like when I bought it. TONS of little fees after the fact. Wouldn't buy again, not worth."

Cons: "The airline website said that they charge $25 for a carry-on luggage. I was charged over $50 when I was checking in for my 1 piece of luggage."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight delayed for 4 hours unbelivable.. And I had to pay for luggage $50 other airline don't do that .. For the same my friend paid $160 retun I paid $260 one way + tax and there 15 empty seats empty and no airline food.. All my friend flew that flight 2 days earlier"

Cons: "People having sex in the bathroom and getting caught midway through the flight was gross, disgusting, and unsanitary for any civilian to use that bathroom."

Pros: "Funny instructions while talking about safety and rules on the plane"
Cons: "Pilots were over half hour late"

Cons: "Flight was delayed two times a few hours before boarding. Poor communication from flight attendants before, during, and after flight. Was not prepared to depart had to wait for a part causing a delayed flight landing at 2:30 am rather than 12:47 am. Flight attendants were not personable or super friendly. Fairly disapointed."

Pros: "The pilot did a great job considering the conditions with the storm and the winds. We went in to land the first time and couldn't because of the winds. I thought the pilot handled it with complete professionalism and excellence considering the conditions."

Pros: "Hospitality, comfortability and neatness"
Cons: "delay"

Pros: "Price"
Cons: "They lost my luggage"

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "flight was 6 hours delayed I am only 5' 5" and barely had enough leg room"

Pros: "Quick, no fuss boarding."
Cons: "lackluster attendants, no drink cart...or maybe I was sleeping..? Seats don't recline...not even a little bit!"

Pros: "Humor of crew."
Cons: "Cramped space."

Pros: "Price"
Cons: "Extra cost for luggage and bigger backpacks"

Pros: "Everything."
Cons: "Nothing."

Cons: "They wanted to charge $55 per carry-on, even for a small one and my laptop bag for each leg if the trip! That's $220! I will never fly with them again!"

Pros: "I thought the crew was alright, though not outstanding. Everything else was terrible."
Cons: "I had so many delays. The first flight was delayed two hours, because of mechanical problems. On my way back we were delayed for half an hour originally, which then turned into three hours. It totally messed with my travel schedule and will never use Spirit again. I understand that it is less expensive, and am 100% fine with not having typical amenities, but I would not expect to lose 5 hours of my life because they can't get it together."

Pros: "- They were so kind as to offer us "complimentary water" for our inconvenience which was a result of them not properly checking their equipment"
Cons: "- Upon arriving at the gate, the flight was listed as going to Denver instead of Minneapolis. There was no representative to ask about this discrepancy. Additionally, when I talked to customer support, they offered no help and had no idea what was actually happening so they made up a lie instead. - As it turns out, our flight was delayed, multiple times... with only one notification of those delays posted - The pilot for our flight was missing, however, the pilots for the flight after were both at the gate - When the pilot arrived, the flight attendants were missing - Just before entering the runway, we stopped and were informed there was an issue with the engine - This issue resulted in an hour delay with no air circulation to cool the cabin, resulting in 85 degrees of discomfort, lasting for over an hour - When the flight finally took off, the flight attendants did not bother to check that everyone was buckled, or that carry on items were stowed away - If you need more reasons why not to fly Spirit, please read more reviews"

Cons: "The representative at the desk was very rude. I tried to explain my situation however, she would not listen to me. The service was terrible. I have worked in the field of customer service for many years and I have never been treated like this. I will never ride this airline again."

Pros: "No food or entertainment provided."

Cons: "4 delay 55 for a carryon no leg room"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Received my suitcase damaged and being accused of carrying something dangerous in it when in fact the airline damaged it and did not offer compensation so I have contacted my attorney"

Pros: "Sense of humor from the captain's announcement."
Cons: "Really Spartan. Flight was delayed an hour."

Cons: "Delayed getting out of LAX due to fog. Got on plane and pilot announced they had to get "gassed up" and wasn't sure how long that was going to take. After delay due to fog, it was another 20 min. before gas was put in. Gate agent was terribly rude to customers; she is at the Spirit counter but was yelling at a guy that wanted an update, saying she was from Jet Blue - point across the lobby at Jet Blue. It was the worst I have seen."

Cons: "They make their ticket price lower, but don't tell you there are mandatory additional charges for things that are included with every other airline. To have ANY seat, not just special seats, there is an extra fee. There is a whopping $45 fee for a carry-on. You don't find out about these things until you go to check in. But you're stuck. You bought the "ticket" long ago. You just weren't aware you had bought a partial ticket. What a shameless racket. We will never use this airline again."

Pros: "I Ilke nothing. is not even good talking about it."
Cons: "I was charged extra $174 dollars while I have 50mints to catch the Airplain. The crew at the counter made me realized that I was late for my flight. and the will have to re-route me with another Airplain. while I was there for another 4 hours. nasty experience. my name is Molik Noah"

Pros: "Ticket price, pleasant helpful staff, smooth timely flight, helpful online reminders of upcoming flight, positive tone of ads and reminders"
Cons: "Expensive added fees for seat and bag Annoying online check-in of bag and seat Annoying added time online to sign up for membership programs Stripped down immovable interior seats Looked like an old plane inside"

Pros: "Price and timeliness"
Cons: "My seat did not recline There were no electronics"

Cons: "The seats were very uncomfortable and I couldn't sit on my behind for quite a while after."

Cons: "Tsa searched my bag and dumped out all of my belongings ( clothes and power tools in a 2-compartment bag and slopped them all together. Ruined all of my clothes by being so careless. my clothes are full of dry wall screws and spackle because there didn't put the bag back together the way it came."

Pros: "Good service Flawless landing in wind"

Pros: "Just fine all around. Small seats, but they tell you that. They tell you about the bag charges in advance. Nothing should be a surprise here."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "It was the worst flight ever. Seats did not recline and limited leg space"

Cons: "I checked in via the self-serve computer at the airport and then was directed to use the fast bag drop off. There was a very long line thought that took 15 minutes to get through. I would not consider that a fast bag drop off."

Pros: "The crew where nice and one of them was funny"
Cons: "You have to pay extra to put any bag under the plane also have to pay for water or soda nothing is complementary on this airline so really it's not cheaper then the other airlines I will pick the other airlines next time cause at least you get to put 1 bag under the plane for free also you don't have to pay $3 for a can soda or water. I paid for two tickets and then on top of those I paid another $126 to have my daughters bag in my bag put underneath the airplane witch I didn't know I was going to have to pay. Also there is no leg room and the seats don't recline at all You have to pay extra to put any bag under the plane also have to pay for water or soda nothing is complementary on this airline so really it's not cheaper then the other airlines I will pick the other airlines next time cause at least you get to put 1 bag under the plane for free also you don't have to pay $3 for a can soda or water.

Also there is no leg room and the seats don't recline at all"

Pros: "The crew had a sense of humor about how Spirit charges for everything. Evvvvverything."
Cons: "Hidden costs for EVERYTHING. This is not a cheap flight at the end of the day, when a carry-on costs $45 and you have to pay for everything on board, even water."

Pros: "The fact that I didn't crash and die and the baggage check station went quickly"
Cons: "Service, amenities, filthy-ness, size, smell, turbulence, announcements, how slow everything and everyone was, everything really."

Pros: "seats were comfortable Pilots informative Attendants were very pleasant. But what entertainment? Boarding was a free for all. No organization. No zone identification called. Caused great aisle slowdown."

Pros: "Boarding was not as heinous as I anticipated."
Cons: "The most cramped seat I've ever had in my life - and I was on the aisle! I could not type comfortably with my laptop on the tray table without my elbows poking out into the aisle and the person next to me - and I am no giant, just 5 feet 7. I got a bad cramp in my back from trying to work without invading space - so bad I had to schedule a chair massage at my destination so I could do the work I was there to do without pain! I would have done better to take the massage $ and invest it in a better flight. Also one flight attendant in particular was extremely disrespectful. I'll not detail that here as I'm writing corporate on this one."

Pros: "The plane didn't crash land."
Cons: "Spirit Airlines gave one of our flight attendants to another flight. SO, not only did everyone have to get off the plane after waiting 30 minutes AFTER we were supposed to take off, wait 60 minutes in the terminal, re-board the plane, wait another 20 minutes for the stragglers to make it back, then do some more waiting in line to take off. Overall, I was over 2 hours late to my destination. With minimal percentage of battery left on my phone, I was lucky to be able to arrange a ride to my home. This is after being hassled about having a plastic bag of food just bought in the terminal, in addition to the ONE bag to travel with. I don't mind the un-reclining seats, but the leg room was very minimal. Especially for someone over 5'6" tall, much less someone of my height."

Cons: "I missed my flight because of the LA traffic, I had a funeral to go to th next day, and they weren't helping me in anyway to get a new ticket or to get me on the next flight. I had a buy a ticket for the next flight from Sun Country. I wouldn't believe how rude spirit was with there customer service. They didn't even ask me for a refund."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Fees m! Fees! Fees! Bad customer service!!!!! The lady kalue that check us in at the Minneapolis airport was extremly rude. We had to pay $90 for one checked bag they are playing tricks with customers. I give this company 2 years before they will go out of business."

Pros: "Generally I dislike flying spirit airlines, as I've had multiple bad experiences with rude staff, delayed or canceled flights, and additional fees that weren't made clear when booking. However, the staff at LAX were very helpful and polite. The plane was on time and the boarding process was smooth. Overall, the trip was great."
Cons: "The flight attendants seemed to dislike each other which gave a negative vibe to the full flight and crew. I noticed this because I was sitting on the flight for over 30 minutes. I would recommend starting the boarding process closer to actual flight time."

Cons: "Cheap ticket with extreme high baggage fees. No glass of water even offered. You have to buy a bottle of water. So after thinking I was saving money, my trip will end up costing me way more than if I would e flown from my usual airlines and airport. There was nothing I could see that lead me to believe this or even warned me to pre pay for baggage and save a little in luggage. Awful. Nobody even apologized at any level."
