Cons: "I could not check in and pay for my second bag at the kiosk. I had to wait in the very long ticketing line to get help. Also, it was not clear that the international flight flew from the AA terminal and not from the International terminal where Iberia flies from...I had to walk to the AA terminal with all my bags which was stressful since I was dropped off at the international terminal which made sense as it was an international flight and the ticket did not say it was flying from the AA terminal only that it was operated by AA.."

Pros: "Left early, crew was friendly"
Cons: "Bought a seat that was explained as not having another passenger on either side, but it was just two seats in a row."

Pros: "Lots of good movies"
Cons: "Less than average legroom for an international flight."

Pros: "We were seated in economy but we had a pretty good flight. The only rough part was the fact that it was 10 hours of sitting, and that was due to the destination not AA's service. As someone who is used to United and Delta for flying, I felt that the service offered kinda rocked."

Pros: "Everyone was friendly"
Cons: "Very tight fit."

Pros: "Staff was really friendly Boarding was easy Flight was on time"
Cons: "Not much space within the seats Food was mediocre Entertainment was okay"

Pros: "I gate checked in the stroller at LAX. When it was pretty much dumped in front of me at LHR with an unspecified apology, the sun hood was bent so it doesn't fold right anymore, there's scuff marks on the side, there's a part missing from the left wheel and it drags to one side now. Not happy. If I'd been told, we'll take this off you and damage it, I might have checked it normally. Our car seat was fine."
Cons: "Damaging our stroller. Food wasn't good either. A yogurt with various toppings apparently is a "Continental breakfast"."

Pros: "That the staff at American Aiirlunes were helpful in getting me to my destination."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and then canceled!!!!! I missed my connecting flight in Miami."

Pros: "Nothing. Cause it didn't happen"
Cons: "Mechanics issues. Plane never took off. Never made our connection. Had to get a new flight."

Pros: "Quick to board and on time, plenty of leg room, great new movie and shoe selection during the flight."
Cons: "The food was satisfying, but not great. Entrees were quite salty and bread came a little soggy."

Pros: "The crew was wonderful! Especially Glenda."
Cons: "The flight was delayed six hours."

Pros: "The A321-S was a pretty good aircraft. Nicely updated interior. Staff were young & professional. Everyone was happy, efficient and professional. It was nice to see the Captain smile and say goodbye to ALL the passengers. Well done AA!"

Pros: "Our flight was delayed by almost three hours due to weather in Chicago, the crew was very helpful and the pilot kept us informed about the updates that he was receiving."

Pros: "The flight attendants were great."
Cons: "The flight was over an hour delayed. that meant I arrived home at 1am. That is a very rough morning."

Pros: "Everything was timely, courteous & pleasant. The aircraft was very clean."

Cons: "No room, limited entertainment, mediocre food. Was a very uncomfortable, long flight! Luggage late coming off plane, missed connecting flight and was not very helpful in getting rebooked."

Pros: "Great entertainment system at each seat"

Cons: "Food was nasty and they didn't have a non dairy option"

Pros: "Service was good. Entertainment system was excellent. Flight took almost an extra 45 minutes to arrive and was quite bumpy at the end. Not sure if it could have been avoided."

Pros: "Boarding and debar king was quick."
Cons: "Attendant was surly, no coffee, no continental breakfast as indicated on the reservation. Very disappointed with in-flight service."

Pros: "Customer services was good."
Cons: "Seat was too small,food was disappointed."

Pros: "Great choices of entertainment that made the flight very enjoyable"

Pros: "Left on time from LAX"
Cons: "We booked for British Airways since we have good experience with them before but this is "operated by American Airlines" - not sure why they just don't say American Airlines when booking. It's deceiving!!!"

Pros: "The crew relax and smile"
Cons: "very small seats"

Pros: "The handed out the customs forms just before landing because they were too busy chatting. I had to fill up the form during landing and got dizzy. During the fligh I asked for water and the stewardess forgot about it."

Pros: "everything ran like clockwork"

Cons: "That fact that on both ways they changed our flights which either we got to the destination late or we had to run across the airport so we don't miss our flights"

Pros: "they would not let me up grade and there was plenty of room to upgrade"
Cons: "I am handicap and was not given a upgrade"

Pros: "The entertainment was free on our flight and that was very nice. Watch a lot of movies iv been wanting to watch. Pilots flew the plane very well."

Cons: "I bought Japan Air but it was American air.. I'm not buy tickets any more!!"

Pros: "WHAT FOOD.,,,,,,.AA DOSE NOT FEE US OR HAVE ANY ENTERTAINMENT,"
Cons: "NOTHING AA IS JUST AS BAD AS FIJI AIRWAYS"

Pros: "It was a very peaceful flight. The crew was extremely professional, and courteous, one of the members went out of her way, and frankly it was the kindest flight attendant has been to me in a while."
Cons: "The typical complaint you would hear regarding airplane food. Though, it does not warrant a true complaint of the flight."

Cons: "Taking away headphones 40 mins prior to landing is ridiculous. AA needs to abandon Bose or figure out a better way."

Pros: "The flight was on time, even arrived early. Nice crew and plenty of food/snacks. It was good to have a selection of movies and TV shows to watch, too."
Cons: "The lack of space on such a long flight was painful, and there wasn't much opportunity to stretch my legs. I was also seated across from a woman who didn't realize how stupid it was to bring a toddler on a 12 hour flight, and he screamed pretty much the entire time. I couldn't sleep at all and not even headphones drowned it out. That part wasn't really the airline's fault though, and I could see that the flight attendants were asking her several times to get her son to quiet down. I just wish there were regulations on these sorts of situations. Everyone around you suffers when you bring a small child on a very long flight because they will inevitably be bored, cranky and uncomfortable, and because we are confined to our seats, we are forced to suffer through it all. I wish that children under a certain age would not be allowed to board flights over a certain length of time except for special circumstances."

Cons: "I didn't know it was American Airlines. I would have bought a different ticket had I known it wasn't JAL."

Cons: "Because it was a day later!!!"

Pros: "No much"
Cons: "What poor services all round. The check in staff where on the phone or talk to themselves. No one even spoke to me at checkin. Then the boarding staff were so rude, they act like they own the plane and they are god. They would not answer anyone questions and just pointed at the screen. The airplane staff hello at least. But the food very so bad, even easyjet has better food. Also their understanding for the english was so poor but the air stewardess told me " we speak American" !!!!"

Pros: "New aircraft."
Cons: "The flight from LAX to HKG was diverted to Haneda, Tokyo. The septic tank was not properly emptied in LAX. Flight in Hong Kong was delayed by about 2 hours due to this diversion. I agree with the call from the Captain. It's a pity that the poor quality of service team in LAX (probably 1-2 individuals) caused tremendous inconvenience to passengers and crew."

Pros: "Everyghing was smooth and on time"
Cons: "Nothing at all"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I booked the flight specifically because it was advertised and booked on British Airways, which is considered a nice international airline to fly. The flight was swaped to American Airlines, and I was put on an international flight that was archaic, I would have been better off flying a prop plane from the 1970's."

Pros: "Once in flight, it was a standard smooth ride to Tokyo."
Cons: "Late announcement of flight delay. Cost me 4 extra hours at LAX, doing nothing. Then, flight delayed again for 30 minutes prior to boarding...and yet AGAIN while on the plane...because of a water shortage. What had the crew been doing in between flights?? Lastly, these delays caused the plane to arrive in Tokyo at 12:30AM (originally it was 10:30PM). All transportations options were closed. I had to take a $90 USD taxi fare into the city. JAL or AA should have given travel vouchers to everyone who needed them. BAD SERVICE, BAD COMMUNICATIONS, BAD RATING."

Cons: "all flights delayed"

Pros: "Fast trip to london. Even it was late by more than hours plot made up some lost time. Entertainment was very good both in quality and varieties."
Cons: "Throughout the trip it was very bumbby. The food was not nearly as good as other cross Atlantic airlines."

Pros: "I liked that I landed in time to get to my next flight."
Cons: "I didn't like that I had a child kicking my seat back the whole flight and that the in flight movie that I purchased skipped more than it played."

Cons: "Some of the crew were rude, had us waiting forever get off the plane"

Pros: "Service, clean aircraft, I felt AA cares about me"
Cons: "Changing gates before boarding"

Cons: "Practically no food was served."

Cons: "Flight cancelled , no communication, the flight the next day delayed two hours and we where given four different gate numbers for the flight, walked backwards and forwards trying to find the correct gate with my children."

Pros: "Nothing about American or the way they do business is good!"
Cons: "I paid for first class seats plane broke put on another in economy seats! And everyone refused to comp us or help us out! Horrible airline avoid if possible! This was twice AA has messed me and my wife over!!"

Pros: "Crew was good but baggage claim took forever. The seating was not well arranged. The seats were very uncomfortable. The weight limit of the bags were unreasonable"
Cons: "Better seats could be better"

Pros: "Great crew. Everything was on time. Loved it"

Pros: "Price"
Cons: "Communication is always my #1 complaint with Allegiant. They delay flights regularly but there’s never any additional information...they just send you a text or email saying your flight is delayed, never tell you why, but they want you at the gate at the regular time...so you sit there for hours with No further communication and the gate agents never come to the gate to let you know what’s going on or what to expect because corporate has gotten stingy with regard to compensating folks even when THEY are to blame for the delay. Two trips in a row, two weeks apart, they’ve done the same thing to us. I appreciate the low fares, but I’ve just about decided I’d rather pay more for good customer service because theirs just sucks."

Pros: "The crew was amazing, super helpful, very friendly and understanding when it came to social distancing."
Cons: "The seats are not the most comfortable, but the price is right."

Pros: "Crew was friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "?"

Pros: "Quickness, efficiency"
Cons: "Nothing. I received all I expected."

Cons: "Alligient air is an excellent economy airline that flies non-stop to smaller cities."

Pros: "The crew was fantastic!"
Cons: "I wish there was at least a free beverage."

Pros: "Cool"
Cons: "Good"

Cons: "Crew unfriendly. Flight attendants and pilots never acknowledged us or said hello or thank you."

Cons: "Built in headrests on the seats."

Pros: "The plane was clean and crew was very friendly."
Cons: "Delayed departure with no explanation. Other passengers clogged up the overhead bins with small bags, purses and containers of to-go food. Causing me to place my carry on in an overhead bin multiple aisles behind my seat which made for a cluster trying to board and de board."

Pros: "Price of ticket. Crew was efficient."
Cons: "Baggage limitations are not clear: especially when the ticket says no carryon luggage. What they mean is anything that fits under your seat and is under 20 lbs is OK. Seat did not recline. Leg room was poor."

Pros: "Nothing. It is a cheap airline and it shows. It is the worst airline I have ever flown."
Cons: "The crew was okay but it must be depressing to work for a company where you cannot get a glass of water without paying for it. I had never flown allegiant and was not prepared for paying $50 for my carry on bag."

Pros: "Everything was done right"
Cons: "The landing was rough"

Pros: "The staff was great"
Cons: "Seats were way to small for tall people with long legs..........."

Cons: "I dislike their pricing structure."

Pros: "Great crew fast service and flight smooth !"
Cons: "I’m tall and have some back issues I found the seats very close and not too comfortable ! I tried to get A seat by the emergency exit but wasn’t early enough on my pick !"

Pros: "To be honest nothing"
Cons: "Missed flight any no one was willing to help us pure BS"

Pros: "Availability at last minute was awesome, and the price was excellent. The direct flight was great too!"
Cons: "No frills... no peanuts!"

Pros: "Cheap fare, nice crew, clean plane"
Cons: "Small seating, small snacks , extra charges for anything"

Pros: "direct flight"
Cons: "EVERYTHING is extra payment, even a small carry-on; water $2!!!; seating is extremely cramped"

Pros: "Airport and onboard crew were nice."
Cons: "It was myself, my wife, and our 18 month old son. The trip was a complete disaster. The first delay was from 12 noon to 7:30 pm because the plane was unavailable. We left the airport and returned at 6 pm for the 7:30 pm departure. The plane was "available." We checked our bags, found our way to the gate, and eventually boarded "ontime." Instead of taking off, however, we sat on board the plane at the gate for 2 hours as work was being done. The work was first called "maintenance," then "a small error code." The captain teased us by saying "folks, just a few more minutes and we should be departing." The crew nourished us with a dixie sized cups of water and Chex mix. Then finally the airline gave up and deplaned everyone. Once deplaned, it was explained to us that they couldn't clear the error code, so they couldn't use that plane. But there was another plane coming from Las Vegas to use so that we could expect a departure around 12 midnight. 12 midnight rolls around. Nothing. 12:30 am. 1 am. Finally, a plane arrives. But then the airline holds us up yet again - turns out we can't depart after all because the arriving airport shuts down at 2 am. Gee, they didn't know that before making us wait another 3 hours??? Now they're offering a refund to anybody who wants one, as well as a hotel for the night and the promise of a flight at 2:30 pm the following day. At this point, many of us are looking up alternative flights to Eugene and even Portland. A $1,000 extra for us. We're not sure whether we can trust Allegiant to have an actual plane ready to go the next day. And we're too tired at that point to even ask why the next flight would be at 2:30 pm rather than first thing in the morning. So finally we line up to get a hotel voucher and find our way to the hotel. It takes over an hour to checkin at the hotel because it's the middle of the night and 150 people just showed up to checkin. We finally get to our room at about 3:30 am. I'm amazed at how well our toddler held up sitting on an airplane for 2 hours, sitting at the airport for about 6 hours, and waiting to fall asleep all night. We eventually made it back to the airport the following afternoon and, praise the lord, made it to our destination. Allegiant - NEVER AGAIN!"

Pros: "The price was unbeatable, especially if you don't pay for a checked bag, carry-on, or a soda on the flight. Very smooth flight as well."
Cons: "The plane interior looks like it was gutted, then fitted with hard, plastic seats. No headrests, no privacy for the flight attendants. Everything costs extra."

Pros: "My wife said that this was the smoothest airplane ride she had ever had."
Cons: "The first lady at the check in desk told us the wrong gate. We wound up taking a tram to another terminal, found out that we were in the wrong place, and then made it back just in time to board with a few minutes to spare. Anyway, the airline itself was o.k. and next time I'll check the arrival/departure board. Since we were traveling with only a carry on, it was a good price after all the "frills" were added (pay for carry on, pay to select seat). we still had a price lower than any other airline. So all in all, once we got on the plane it was a pleasant experience."

Pros: "The view through a milkey-filmed window."
Cons: "Airplane would have been nicer and lighter if the 4 attendants would have cleaned it."

Pros: "Great cost. Boarding and crew were seamless and pleasant."
Cons: "As with all airlines, it has all the comfort of a cattle car. No drink service - even water cost you money."

Pros: "The original price points for the direct flights are wonderful. You can actually book the week of a trip and save hundreds because those prices will probably still be the best. That is, until you learn about all of their extra fees."
Cons: "Wow, they sure do add extra fees for everything. Watch out. In the end, I bet it was cheaper to book with a major airline like American. They charge extra for each bag, including your carry- on, when you pick your seat you are charged depending on where it is in the aircraft, if you want a drink or food on the plane you will have to pay, if you do not print your ticket prior to arriving to the aiport they will charge you, etc."

Pros: "I liked that they had a direct flight from Los Angeles to Bellingham."
Cons: "The delays were horrendous and a google search reveals this to be so common it makes me wonder if it's not part of their business model. Like, so bad I ended up booking a return flight on Alaska and just ate the extra $300."

Pros: "Considering the fare was advertised between $350 and $700 with other carriers on Kayak, I took this one for $179, roundtrip, direct from LAX to Grand Junction."
Cons: "When the crew runs to get coffee in the terminal, make sure to do the same. I brought some snacks, but wish I had brought coffee. The man next to me kept creeping into my space which was incredibly annoying, but it was a relatively quick flight. Beats the two day drive from L.A. to Colorado."

Pros: "It's convenient and inexpensive for one of my regular destinations. Though, over the years, I've experienced a few cranky employees at the Punta Gorda location. Just the opposite in Asheville, where friendly was apparently invented."

Pros: "The price."
Cons: "The customer service. The plane breaking down and causing a 2 hour delay. The lack of compassion from the flight crew. The fact that the seats don't recline. The fact that our baggage was $222 one way."

Pros: "Flight cost."
Cons: "Xtra charge for everything."

Pros: "Nothing about this flight experience was good, with the exception of my overpriced hummus and crackers."
Cons: "Boarding was slow and archaic. Once we were all finally seated they came through 3 times with a paper trying to figure out who wasn't on board. As we taxied towards the runway a lady who felt dizzy coming on board threw up. The crew was obviously panicked and unorganized. We taxied back to our gate and waited for LA Fire for. to escort the ill lady off and clean the area. While waiting to taxi out the second time the flight attended, Tyeesha, was very rude to an elderly gent. He was seated in an exit row and she didn't think him capable. The lady on the aisle of my row volunteered to switch and Tyeesha' s response was a sharp, "Do you want to pay the higher price too?" When the lady next to me said she would gladly pay Tyeesha announced loudly that this discussion was between the two of them and everyone else needed to mind their own business. The lady offering to switch was really embarrassed, as was the elderly gent. Someone else was made to switch with him. They looked disgruntled too. In the air all the flight attendants were sharp and very direct. There were no please or thank you's used. Trash was collected silently and mostly with pointing. The armrest to my left had five flavors of chewed gum stuck to the side of it. My lap tray had grey and yellow sticky stuff on it and I chose to hold my food rather than let the two touch. The floors were untidy. The only reason I will ever fly Allegiant again is if I have no other options. It is 60 minutes closer to my house than SLC and I will be making the drive from now on."

Pros: "Seats were clean and nice"
Cons: "One crew member clearly is a disgruntled employee. It also should be against the law not to provide water without payment."

Pros: "The crew and pilot"
Cons: "Entertainment."

Pros: "Easy airport. Easy for rental return, going through security, and walking to the terminal. Quick loading time. Nice, clean plane with plenty of on-board crew to accomodate."
Cons: "Damage to checked baggage from Mesa to SGF. A quality, thick, hard-sided suitcase developed a crack in the side. Abnormal pressure would have had to be applied to cause this type of damage. Cheaper or soft-sided luggage would have experienced damage to the contents. Unfortunately, I did not check the luggage before leaving the airport to file a complaint."

Pros: "Easy boarding, smooth flight, quick cart service, fast flying"
Cons: "Seats are so small I was window seat with two men who were jammed up so uncomfortably in their seats I felt bad. I was cramped cause they had no choice but to spill over in my seat. I understand safety is important but unless the plane is in middle of taking off or landing, or horrible turbulence anyone should be able to use the bathroom. We had landed and were just sitting and waiting on a gate to open. My fellow travler happened to be on her period n was told No she could not use the bathroom. After the 3rd time of her being sent back I got up with her and a tampon in hand n told the staff they had no choice she was using that bathroom. Of course they had to phone the captain and ask for permission which he ok it, but seriously , what are we supposed to do just sit in our blood. That was not cool."

Pros: "The crew was very friendly"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 2 hours. The plane was freezing the entire flight. Apparently, the crew tried to get the pilot to turn down the air, but it never happened. I hate how Allegiant nickel and dimes you. Not even a cup of water is free."

Pros: "Everything was super easy with Allegiant. This was our second time flying with this airline, and even though you feel like you get nickeled and dimed to death, the overall price is still much lower than any other airline. The plane was clean and the crew, both ways were awesome and in-tune with their passengers. Don't be fooled by the pricing, this is really an outstanding airline, we will fly again with Allegiant!"

Pros: "Very affordable."
Cons: "Seats are too close"

Pros: "Everything was fine"
Cons: "Hard landing"

Pros: "I sat in the front row so that I had leg room. It was worth the extra 20 bucks."
Cons: "No champagne."

Pros: "The flight attendants were great. Pilots attention to detail..Great."
Cons: "Charging for every little thing including seat choice, bags, snacks. No complimentary beverages or peanuts. Not even water! In the long run, I didn't save money on this trip."

Cons: "The LA to Eugene leg was delayed in departing, but this was an improvement on the cancelled flight from Eugene to LA. Arrived at the airport 2 hours early per their instructions to find the flight was delayed. Thirty minutes later they cancelled the flight and then provided no information concerning the new flight the following day."

Pros: "Flight was on time with a very pleasant staff"

Cons: "Every flight has been late or delayed by 1- 5 hours, unacceptable"

Pros: "I liked the price. Crew was very efficient getting everyone on board. Flight was on time. Your crew for the most part was very attentive. I fly between Albuquerque and LAX at least 2x a month. This was my first time with your airline. I am definitely going to use you again."
Cons: "A couple times staff was a bit inattentive. The elder lady in my row spilled her drink all over - on the tray and her lap. I had to ask 3x to get a napkin or something to help her clean it up. After the 3rd time she responded she was getting something but it was after she talked to someone and got a bottle of water for herself. It was unfortunate but overall I found your crew very nice and helpful."

Pros: "Ticket price was great and staff was very kind."
Cons: "Paying for a carry on or a cup of water is a little crazy but I guess if it's overall a short flight you make it work."

Pros: "Base price and airport convenience."
Cons: "Add on pricing for booking the reservation, selecting a seat and any other possible need. "Required" arrival two hours prior to flight, but check in desk not available. Seats were thin and too narrow for most every body type."

Cons: "They held us for two hours on the plane because their paper work was wrong, the flight attendants were rude and made everyone uncomfortable"

Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above, but smoother landing"

Cons: "This flight was delayed by several hours, so I was concerned that I might miss my connecting flight in Denver. I could have flown through any other city en route to Raleigh, so it was frustrating that Frontier would not do anything for me until I got to Denver, because the risk was extremely high that I would miss the last flight out of Denver. Fortunately, Frontier decided to hold the connecting flight so that people on this flight could make their connection. HOWEVER, I landed a few hours later in CHARLOTTE, NC. Apparently Frontier had not checked my ticket when I boarded the wrong plane. My ticket clearly indicated that I was supposed to be on the flight to Raleigh. From Charlotte, there was an American Airlines flight that I could have transferred to--something that every other airline I've flown has done under these circumstances. But Frontier told me they don't put passengers on other airlines' flights, so I had to wait another couple of hours to catch Frontier's next flight to Raleigh. Throughout the whole process, it was very frustrating because for hours while I waited at LAX, I couldn't find a single Frontier employee. I even had to wait at ticketing when I arrived at the airport, not because of a line but because there was no one from Frontier at the counter. All of this suggests to me that Frontier just doesn't care. They don't care enough to be at the airport in case passengers have problems like this. They don't care enough to avoid missed connections by putting people on different flights. They don't care enough to make sure passengers are getting on the correct flights."

Pros: "Comfort.. I purchased coach. Not first class. Food.. Did tried the food at all Entertainment.. My Ipad"
Cons: "I did not disliked nothing at all"

Cons: "Everything was fine other than how cold it was on the plane. The coldness actually woke me up several times because it was so bad."

Pros: "Unchanged from previous flight"
Cons: "All good."

Cons: "They changed gates and there were no signs or announcements. We would have missed our flight if I hadn't searched out an airline employee and asked."

Pros: "Wonderful trip experience. Will certainly fly Frontier again."

Pros: "The price is reasonable. Good service!"

Cons: "Plane comfort is average."

Pros: "Price was good for a direct flight"
Cons: "Pretty much everything else. I checked in online - where they clearly state that there will be a bag drop for prepaid checked luggage. There was not. Instead there were three people behind the counter (only two were actually taking anyone from the long line) - who seemed completely confused. They at least knew that the gate had changed, but they didn't know where it had been changed to. I found it. It then proceeded to change 3 more times. The final change was not announced, we all just followed another passenger who had seen the change listed on the airport departure screen. The final gate was "39" a door in a hallway that opened up onto a tarmac. We waited there about 30 minutes (after the scheduled boarding time) before the door opened. They had no scanner for passes, so the attendant had to write things down on paper when we showed him our passes!! The actual cabin is tight, but that's to be expected. What wasn't expected was the random turning off and on of overhead lights throughout the (red-eye) flight. It was like a torture technique. To round out this great experience, the flight attendant instructed us to de-board the plane in order. Row 1 (left side) then row 1 (right), etc. This clearly pissed off many passengers who had no carry-on luggage and could have just walked off while those with stuff in overheads waited. When I finally got to exit the plane, I heard a guy somewhere behind me say "f-you" to the crew as they gave us the traditional "have a good day". We all felt the same, just didn't say so."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Cons: "It was almost 3 hours dleyed and nobody explain why, and we walk to airplan from outside it was terable."

Pros: "It left on time"
Cons: "The chairs are like torture devices. They replaced their humane, padded chairs with these ultra slim hard plastic ones that don't recline so you're stuck sitting at a 90 degree angle with basically no padding so they can fit more seats on the plane with tiny tray tables. I'd like to see the CEO spend a couple of hours in one these. I'll never fly Frontier again because they've completely lost touch with the concept of treating customers with dignity."

Pros: "Good price."
Cons: "Baggage claim at CVG was soooooooooo slow. My bag took over an hour to finally arrive at the claim."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything. Never using them again"

Pros: "The crew was professional."
Cons: "The seats are not comfortable so it makes it difficult to sleep. Ours was a red-eye so that was not good."

Cons: "If I would have know there would be a $40 per carry on bag I would have selected another airline. Any snacks or beverages other than water were also charged in flight. I guess I was pampered by Delta for a similar flight and didn't expect the up-charges from Frontier."

Pros: "Flight was quick and fine"
Cons: "Security line experience was ridiculously long that made several of us almost miss the flight. That added stress skewed my experience"

Pros: "I really liked that the flight was early and everyone was on earlier than expected, and we got to our destination at a very early time."

Cons: "Too small, tables small, seats are small, no leg room."

Cons: "Was not informed of the extra charges for carry on baggage. No food or even snacks included in the trip...not even the basic things like water, blankets and earphones. This was not made clear or indicated in the ticket when I bought it. Would have never bought the ticket if I knew that was not the real and total price. On top of that ... there are no checks in place to make sure that all the passengers had paid for the carry on. I paid but I will dispute the charge and get it back based on the aiirlines' inconsistent practice regarding that. The policy is not enforced on everyone."

Pros: "I like the efficiency and the price of frontier flights."
Cons: "I don't like that it is very cramped and it is hard to get comfortable. Also you have to pay for non alcoholic beverages which is annoying. As well as the fees for luggage and seat assignments. Overall they were still cheaper than the other flights available, but it is false advertising to initially pay such low fares but then upon check in have to fork over another $60+ for bags and seats. Felt sort of scammed"

Pros: "The flight crew was friendly and the pilots did a great job, even during the turbulence.:-)"
Cons: "It was inconceivable to me that you would have to pay for your seat on the plane, after having purchased a ticket, and pay for water on a flight.:-("

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Felt it was like 90 degrees the whole flight. Could've paid the same amount after baggage for a much nicer flight. Stay away from frontier."

Cons: "Charged me 60 dollars per carry on so I had to leave one of bags in the airport. Didn't exactly advertise that to us because we would have changed or canceled my flight, which is another way of saying that Frontier mislead us into buying their flight. Never flying frontier again."

Cons: "Crazy expensive carry on fees!! Terrible hard plastic seats that do not recline. Broken overhead light. Never flying frontier again!!!"

Pros: "Cheap"
Cons: "So many added extra fees. Hard seats that don't recline. No food on plane."

Pros: "Nice seats"
Cons: "It's silly to pay so much for a carry on, but the flight was so cheap."

Cons: ""Upgraded" to the most uncomfortable seat I've ever flown in. Expensive checked and carry on. Flight attendants were all extremely rude and unprofessional - spent the entire flight ignoring the passengers and clustered at the front of the plane complaining about coworkers. The flight attendants were doing much of their work by flashlight - seemed very substandard. No welcome. No goodbyes. It was clear that they had disdain for the clients. No food or beverage service. Will never consider Frontier again."

Pros: "Staff was nice"
Cons: "Charging for soda and carry-ons, I'm surprised you guys are still in business. I will avoid Frontier like the plague."

Pros: "The seats were of newer material."
Cons: "Newer but very hard seats. I'm 6'2" and the seats didn't recline and my knees were hitting the seat in front of me...a lot. On a red eye flight, this was torturous. The seat backs did not go high enough for my head either. The flight was delayed 40 minutes as well."

Cons: "Sent everyone to the wrong baggage claim and then told us the right one over the PA system and we turn around and all the bags had been sitting there unattended without anyone's notice and in complete chaos."

Cons: "Always delay"

Cons: "Frontier cancels my flight due to weather and told me they couldn't get me home until 12/19. I had to purchase another last minute ticket from another airline, find another hotel and it was all extremely costly. Terrible customer service and no one seemed to care that I was stuck in la with no way home. Ironically enough- the next flight out with frontier was nearly on time and delivered passengers back to Denver only a couple of hours after me."

Pros: "Smooth flight."
Cons: "They double booked my seat. It was awkward. Then they took out an insane woman off the seat 2 seats in front of me. That was a good thing."

Pros: "I made it to my destination safely."
Cons: "Complementary soft drinks or coffee would have been nice."

Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Organized, efficient crew. Clean, comfortable aircraft. On time."
Cons: "No problems"

Pros: "One of the friendliest flight crews I've ever experienced! Very accommodating and attentive."

Cons: "the price for the trip does not include that you have to pay for Carry-on, which is an odd expense to passengers."

Cons: "The chairs were uncomfortable and they charge for everything including pretzels and drinks."

Pros: "Cheap flight."
Cons: "Had the red eye from LAX To Orlando. We were packed in there tightly. Food down trays. We're about the size of an iPad mini. Only had complementary water, offered once. Had to pay for a carry on, which was a surprise to me. spens a little extra and take delta for comfort. Frontier is purely comfort for your wallet."

Pros: "The flight was on time and boarding went smoothly. Cheap airfare, but additional fees for close to everything. Thankfully personal items are free to bring on the plane. Carry-on items are $40 if you check-in online before you get to the airport. To my understanding, this fee is raised when you pay in person. There is no first-class section, but for $50, you can get additional leg room in the first rows of the plane. Water is offered during the flight, but no other beverages are complimentary. If you are looking for an affordable way to travel and can pack light, this is pretty ideal."
Cons: "I flew from 1am-6am, so my experience might have been more uncomfortable than flights at other times of day. Seats do not recline, which made sleeping kind of difficult. I folded down the mini tray table and used it as a platform for my coat and other pillowy items to rest my head- this was the most comfortable position to sleep in, in my opinion. My feelings about the crew members are kind of neutral. Besides offering water, I didn't see much of them. Flying's cool and a great privilege so writing a review about experiencing mild discomfort feels silly to me. The experience was fine overall."

Pros: "Waiting area was not crowded"
Cons: "Hard seats. Very poor ergonomics in seat handles and front trays. Highly uncomfortable seats. All passengers were boarded and flight waited for 20 mins for stewardesses arriving through another flight. Making 200 passengers wait is not professional."

Cons: "Make sure you factor in the cost of paying for absolutely everything into the price. Everything. Checked bags, carry on bags, a seat, and $2 for a soda."

Pros: "Not much. I got from point a to b on time though."
Cons: "The carry on luggage charge is offensive. No clear explanation of the policy on site. Kiosks don't work reliably. Seats are uncomfortable with minimal padding and no head rest for this redeye flight. Nearly impossible to get rest. Too expensive for what it was."

Pros: "Flight was cheap."
Cons: "There is a fee for carry-on so be sure to account for that if you are travelling on a budget. The flight I was on was a newer plane, however there wasn't any entertainment options and the seats don't recline. Also Frontier does not have precheck (at least at lax) so be sure to arrive earlier if you are used to using the fast line."

Pros: "I am very impresed with everything about Frontier. Will fly with Frontier again and will recommend."

Pros: "I was charged for a seat. While I believed I paid $50 extra for a fully reclining seat, my seat barely reclined and I regretted upgrading to the location that I did."

Pros: "Ample room for carry on bag"
Cons: "Basic water and peanuts not included"

Pros: "The seats are comfortable. Everyone was friendly. Plane was clean. And they stayed on time at the gate and the flight. I used to fly SouthWest all the time in the past, i will never fly SouthWest in the future. I was even happy when i had to call a representative about adding a window seat. They were friendly, helpful. I owned a business for 30 years, hardly ever do people give positive feedback. Well done"

Pros: "I like the raffle ticket for middle seat."

Pros: "My flight was fine--nothing special, nothing terrible."
Cons: "I found it really annoying that if a flight was delayed, it could, at any time be un-delayed. I also found it annoying that it seems if you don't check your back very early, you might just be out of luck. I also didn't like that I had to pay for snacks. Snacks can't possibly be making that much of a difference in the overall price of a ticket. I paid $3 for a snack and another $3 for a pop--just include that $6 in my ticket. Oh, and you're charged $10 for printing out a boarding pass."

Cons: "Flight was delayed. Flight attendant was patronizing. Won't be flying again. The return flight was cancelled all together. So frustrating."

Cons: "You have to even pay the meal!"

Pros: "The rear flight attendant's safety brief - hilarious! The pilot's smooth landing in bad weather. The in-flight MasterCard bonus - both wife and I took advantage of that."
Cons: "The reservation process and bag fees. Kept asking for more and more add on stuff."

Pros: "Crew was awesome. No delays......"

Pros: "Crew was very friendly. Got me to where I was going on time. Don't expect anything other than that unless you want to shell out more money."

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "I did not even get a chance to GET ON THE PLANE because I was 2 minutes too late to the kiosk and it would not let me print my ticket. I was notified that I would have to be there NO later than 45 min to get my boarding pass, but I had no previous knowledge of this spirit rule. I did NOT receive an email telling me to check in within 24 hours to 1 hour before my flight. I did attempt to check-in prior to getting to the airport and could not because the website is so poorly designed. If you try and look online for this information it is nowhere to be found. I only had a backpack therefore knew that in a smaller airport I would very easily get through security and allocated that time to get to my plane. Although I was not even allowed to print my ticket. I will NEVER fly spirit airlines because their customer service is awful and they are liars to all flyers."

Cons: "From Kansas City to los Angeles I have a delayed if 20 hrs"

Pros: "Good job on the way back."
Cons: "Waited 6 hours at airport first day before being told flight was cancelled. Then told to arrive at Seven am the next day as flight would leave at eight thirty--but plane left at eleven thirty. We waited in the plane about one hour as Spirit forgot to fill the plane up with gas. On the way out, the crew was also very rude."

Pros: "Easy, pleasant trip. Will book again"

Pros: "Flights on time or early. Well organized boarding. Clean & new planes, & seemed roomier than the "big guy" airlines."
Cons: "Seats don't recline. Everything costs from water to seats to carry-on bags to checked bags. By time you pay to get a seat and to either check or carry on a bag both ways, add $70 per person to fare. Helps if you bring your own snacks."

Pros: "Flight attendants were funny and warm hearted"

Pros: "Outstanding service"
Cons: "No complaints"

Pros: "boarding as quick and efficient"
Cons: "they gave us a menu and when we ordered they di not have what we ordered. Mind you their were 3 of us and everything we ordered they didn't have."

Cons: "It doesn't seem right to ha e to pay extra for checked bags and carry on."

Cons: "That I had to pay for every little thing and the baggage price is too high."

Cons: "It took them more than 5 hours to rebook us."

Cons: "The plane filled with smoke as we ascended. We had to come back down for an emergency landing. Then, we waited multiple hours to be helped after the traumatizing experience. Worst flying experience ever; it was one of the scariest moments of my life. There is definitely a reason why the flights are cheap, Spirit toes the line between cheap flights and passenger safety."

Cons: "It was delayed and ended up having a connecting flight."

Pros: "I was a little scared after reading all the reviews, but I gotta say it was very nice. Plane was very clean, lots of leg room, super nice flight attendance. One never knows til they fly themselves. Loved it."
Cons: "That you had to pay extra for your carry on."

Pros: "I appreciated the updates for flight and schedule changes. Unfortunately, my overall experience was not impressive."
Cons: "I ended up paying the exact for what I would have paid with another airline. I especially disliked the fact that a complimentary glass of water and snacks weren't provided. I also feel that you shouldn't have to compromise service for flying "cheap". Even though "cheap" overall wasn't any different from any of the other airlines I've flown. I like the concept and idea of Spirit but I feel that there is still a great deal of fine tuning."

Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "The plan departure time changed three times...3 hour delay. Was at the aiport for 5 hours"

Pros: "Crew was energetic and helpful and efficient. I appreciate that Spirit airlines only makes you pay for what you want."
Cons: "We were delayed an hour, but no biggie. I've been happy with Spirit airlines for short trips >3 hrs. I don't need to be pampered on an airplane; that's what the vacation destination is for."

Pros: "Nothing!"
Cons: "Horrible customer service,"

Pros: "The plane landed safely…"
Cons: "$55 for a carry-on bag… Come on!"

Pros: "Everything went smoothly and on time. Surprisingly great experience!"

Cons: "In flight crew was fussy, nagging. Lots of you can't do... Didn't like everything having a price, even water and a snack."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything, flight was cheap but then the stolen items from my luggage nullified any discounted ticket price. Never will I fly spirit again."

Pros: "Nonstop flights from LAX to KC leaving and returning at reasonable times. I went to Ross and bought the largest bag I could find that met the personal item size restriction. Otherwise, all my ticket savings would have been used up by the small amount of luggage permitted. Feels like nickle and diming. I don't think this M.O. can last because people won't come back if they feel ripped off."
Cons: "The Spirit flight was delayed. No text or email from the airline though they had my info supposedly for that purpose. I found out by looking online right before we would have left to go to the airport. 1 1/2 hour delay. When I arrived at the airport, the monitors said the plane was now delayed 2 1/2 hours beyond initial departure time. Still no text or email. When I checked online, there was no update indicating the later departure time. Obviously, my time spent cooling my heels around the airport was of no concern to the airline. Also, led to me eating overpriced airport food rather than food at home when the delay pushed the flight into the dinner hour."

Pros: "Both flights were on time. First flight was exactly on time, second flight was 8 minutes delayed. Online check-in was seamless even though the system was down for the return flight. I just printed the page saying that the system was down and the ticketing clerk at the airport processed the check-in immediately."

Pros: "Wide seats were definitely a plus."
Cons: "Noise was excessive in cabin. Not sure for the reason but engines I thought were noisy. Your low fare does have it's hidden costs. Will do more checking before next flight!"

Pros: "Did not like the time wasting"
Cons: "Spirit Airline is the worst airline to be on. I won't board this plane ever again. My first experience today is the worst . We were suppose to board at 1:20pm , we waited till 2:45pm to be on the plane . It's a 2 and half hr flight . We arrived at 7:51pm , we waited more than an hr to get out of the plane . They said a plane was un boarding so we had to wait till they were done. Very cheap plane don't try it. My first experience is the worst."

Pros: "Reasonablypriced"
Cons: "The true price of the flight was hidden in baggage"

Cons: "The seats are so uncomfortable."

Pros: "Cheap rates compared to other airlines except frontier (which has better service)"
Cons: "Just about everything else. The fact you charge your customers for water when flying thousands of feet above the ground is absolutely rediculous"

Cons: "Surprise fee for *carry-on* bags? Extra fee for checking in with an agent? What's next, a corkage fee for bringing your own water onto the plane? I spent the three hours we were delayed wishing I had paid more up front for an airline that doesn't treat its customers like marks at a carnival. With the baggage fee on my return trip, the difference in price is not worth it."

Pros: "On time, nice attendants"
Cons: "that you charge extra for everything including seats, however so far I have always received a decent random seat assignment. On line check in was confusing, and I had to print my boarding pass, could not figure out how to have it texted to me so I could simply use my phone to show my boarding pass. Also you need to have a NA category above, I didn't have any food, and I didn't have any entertainment, so I rated you poor. Those two areas were not applicable to me."

Pros: "The help that I received as a handicapped passenger was outstanding . I understand that this is a Airbus plane I feel that the agent booking my ticket should have offered me the larger seat before I got on the flight at least giving me the information about the seat"
Cons: "The pilot had a smooth landing and I told him that I have to give him a 10 on the landing ! LOL"

Cons: "my flight was good but I'm very disappointed because they did not give me the $50 baggage discount that they promised to all the passengers on flight 620 that got delayed on the way to Los Angeles on December 12, 2015."

Pros: "flight attendants were nice."
Cons: "Flight talking off was late so arrival was late. Watch out for all the costs of all the extras. By the time you pay for bags, seats, and boarding the cost of the ticket is as much as an airlines that doesn't "nickle & dime" you to death!"

Pros: "Decent price on flights. Check in and boarding went very smooth. Don't get caught up in buying extras like seat assignments and take advantage of the personal bag item. The flight attendants were friendly and the crew did their best to get us to our destination timely."
Cons: "This flight was delayed by two hours. We landed thirty minutes earlier than our two hour delay but we couldn't get to our gate because it was occupied."

Pros: "The staff was very, very friendly and made the flight more pleasant."
Cons: "The delay may not have been the airline's fault, but it was made worse by a 40 minute excruciating gate wait."

Pros: "Flight itself was good."
Cons: "Two hour delay with no real explanation. Airport ground crew were nowhere to be found."

Pros: "Flight from MCI to LAX had no issues"
Cons: "Flight going home, LAX to MCI was delayed and then cancelled for maintenance. Earliest possible reschedule flight was 3 days later!! No accommodations for being stuck at the airport. Airline did offer refund however to attempt to book a new airline was more than double the price for a last minute ticket. I would never use Spirit airline again"

Cons: "Problems with the seats. Cushion had been removed from the arm rest and rivets stuck up and were uncomfortable. Seats not reclining was news to me."

Pros: "everything but the delay"
Cons: "The delay"

Pros: "The pilot did a good job landing without making it jerky. Because it was super crowded I could move seats which was nice"
Cons: "as always, chairs are stiff"
