Top 4 airlines serving Charlotte Douglas to New York
Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The fact that I was so relaxed."
Cons: "The food"
Cons: "Online check in didn’t work. Called Delta 800# and rep said I needed to wait till I got to airport. Airport rep said I needed to use the KLM flight number, not the Delta number.W"
Pros: "drink carts came around twice"
Cons: "Even though there were sunchips available, they were not giving them out to everyone. Only the people that paid up in coach got the sun chips. The rest of us got these sad bag of pretzels and cheesey snacks. So sad. Why wouldn't Delta offer the same snacks to everyone? Seems like such a small additional cost compared to such an offensive action. The money you save is certainly lost in bad publicity."
Pros: "The staff was efficient and kind"
Cons: "The plane was late for weather reasons and they overbooked the flight they had to offer $400 for next flight wasn’t until the next morning.. no entertainment system on plane"
Cons: "No LCD screen for entertainment."
Pros: "Personnel was friendly and accommodating"
Cons: "Delayed half hour and no leg room"
Pros: "in Charlotte"
Cons: "delay on flight"
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "45 minute delay (due to airport, not airline"
Pros: "The crew was extremely nice and helpful."
Cons: "Small crowded aircraft with minimal overhead storage. The seat pitch was so limited my knees were against the seat in front of me. The tray table couldn’t be lowered completely. Small child behind me kicked my seat during the entire fight."
Pros: "Power outlets, snacks, beverages."
Cons: "Boarding (goes faster if the rear of the plane boards first), delay, insufficient space at seat, no advance notification of needed app for entertainment access, app not available on kindle fires."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and efficient"
Cons: "Very minimal legroom. Screaming children behind me kicking my seat during flight"
Pros: "Crew was nice. Flight very smooth"
Cons: "We had to get seats at boarding because of the flight delay. She offered us two seats in the back. I knew they don't pushback so I said no. She had given the woman ahead of me two seats in comfort plus. Did not offer that and was rude. There were at least a few empty seats in that area. As a courtesy to us having 1)been delayed in Costa Rica. And then 2) a long wait for the connecting flight in Atlanta it would have been reasonable to offer those seats. Which remained empty"
Pros: "Boarding was quick. Staff and crew were friendly. Everything went well despite the 30 min delay we had on the runway. They gave us snacks and we ended up still arriving on time."
Cons: "Multiple delays in Atlanta"
Cons: "Delay and inoperative Sattelite TV"
Pros: "I love being on a smaller plane/jet! Boarding was painless and I had no problems with my two small bags. Due to a mix-up in seating, I had both seats to myself! We even got in will before the scheduled time! De-boarding took far less time than "regular" plane/jet!!!"
Pros: "Nice regional jet!"
Cons: "It was a regional jet..."
Pros: "Boarding was efficient"
Cons: "My luggage didn't arrive with me"
Pros: "Polite and efficient"
Pros: "Flight was on time and even landed early. Boarding was seamless with bag tag. Seats were comfy. Crew was professional."
Cons: "A drink with no napkins? I know airlines need to cut costs but what if I spilled my drink or want to wipe my hands after eating pretzels Delta? You can still provide napkins."
Pros: "The crew was very accommodating and helpful and the new entertainment systems with the free movies are awesome. Because of the heat in the cabin we received additional beverage service and follow up waters"
Cons: "The air above my seat wasn't working for the duration of the flight and there were problems with the air throughout the cabin so it was uncomfortably warm for the whole flight."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for boarding, then delayed for take-off, then circled LaGuardia for an hour, diverted to JFK. They indicated weather, but JFK is 9.6 miles away... so weather really??!!"
Pros: "I'm not sure but it seemed as though the isle was wider than before or other airlines. It looks as nice not having the beverage cart hit my elbow when it went down the isle."
Pros: "Flight attendant was excellent and pilots did a great job with weather"
Cons: "Delayed multiple times. I have been traveling 13 hours and am still not in London."

Cons: "Was delayed 1.5hrs"
Pros: "Food in first class was quite good. Flight was smooth, and arrived early."
Cons: "The boarding agents lost control of the crowd form the get go. The first class cabin crew on our side of the plane was inattentive, though it appeared on the other half of the plane the crew was very attentive. This is one of the poorer first class seats in the industry. The "lie flat" seat is just that, a lie. It is pitched at an angle, though not as steep as some. Foot cubby is narrow and constrictive, bordering on claustrophobic."
Pros: "Great crew and service. Drink were served all the time. Everyone was extra nice"
Cons: "Small cramped and uncomfortable plane."

Pros: "The crew & pilot were awesome. At least they provided snacks & water while we waited and kept us informed of delays the whole time."
Cons: "My flight was delayed then cancelled with no option to seek a seat on an alternative airline. I had to fly standby. Fortunately, I was able to get a seat on the 3:30 flight (my original flight was scheduled for 10:45am). When I arrived at my destination I was exhausted from spending all day in the airport!"
Pros: "There is no rating selection for not applicable under entertainment, unless your asking about watching other passengers."
Cons: "Leg room was awful, and flights left late for no reason."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly."
Cons: "It delayed for an hour."
Pros: "great boarding crew for an early morning flight."
Pros: "Free upgrade to Economy Plus"
Cons: "The flight was delayed an hour"
Pros: "The crew was spectacular and so kind!"
Cons: "We couldn't board the flight for an extra half and hour."
Cons: "My mother, Linda Thompson, has a progressive neuromuscular disorder, Dystonia. Along with this condition, stress can bring on non-epileptic seizures. My mother has had to endure one of these seizures due to the stress that this incident had put her through. As my mother's power of attorney, I am helping her vocalize this incident that she has experienced. The image below shows the spot where she was left, in the Atlanta airport, in her wheelchair. Delta airlines says they provide safe, accessible travel to all of their passengers. That includes providing an employee to transport physically disabled persons to and from their flights and to their shuttle. An employee accompanied my mother when she got off of her plane arriving in Atlanta from Charlotte. This employee was obligated to transport her where she needed to go. Due to her first flight being delayed, she missed her connecting flight in Atlanta, and had to stay the night until the connection could be made in the morning. They provided her with a voucher to a local hotel and a shuttle to that hotel. The employee who met her at the gate was obligated to help her get to that shuttle so she could get to her hotel in time. As many of us may know, Atlanta airport is one of the largest. You might need to take a train to get from one area to the next. It would be very difficult for my mother to walk that distance with her cane, and that is why she needed a wheelchair. The inconsiderate, selfish employee of whom needed to transport my mother to her destination was coming to the end of his shift. He attempted to hand my mother off to another employee at the desk while she was getting her voucher. Told her it was the end of his shift and he had to clock out. She told him, "You can't leave her here". Her statement, and the way she stated it, made my mother feel like she was a piece of luggage. She ignored it and let the employee take her on her way. She just wanted him to take her to her shuttle so that she could get to her hotel and rest. That did not happen. He strolled my mother along for a moment until they were out of site. They approached a gate, of which was empty, and he told her to wait here for an agent to come by. He left. She waited...and waited. No one ever came and assisted her. She was left like a piece of luggage in the middle of the Atlanta airport with no one around. My mother was treated like a bag that someone did not want to carry around anymore. This situation and the selfishness of that employee makes me think of who else could have been treated like this, or who else could be treated like this in the future. Help me spread this message so that something can be done about this issue. Delta has already been contacted, they do not care enough to do anything about it. I bet they will if this message gets heard by their potential future passengers."

Pros: "Complimentary First Class."
Cons: "Clean plane better"
Pros: "Great flight and crew."
Pros: "Didn't die..."
Cons: "Flight delayed, otherwise the seats were the same as all other planes I've been on. Not sure how you differientiate a consistiently bad experience between the 5 or 6 airlines that are left. Our expectations are now so low that if an airline Employee smiles at us we give their employer 5 stars. We should probably find a better way to rate the cable companies and airlines in our lives."
Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "Some travelers was not good."
Pros: "The crew was polite. Flight was late leaving Charlotte but landed on time in Newark."
Pros: "Flight was delayed and Captain explained reason as Newark Airport Traffic Control. Further delay was experienced after taxiing and Captain kept us informed. Seats were marginally ok and flight crew was attentive. Had a soda and a small bag of pretzels. Overall, it was an ok flight."
Pros: "Smaller plane, quick luggage delivery on arrival, 20 minutes early arrival time"
Pros: "The staff and crew were very helpful, especially in helping catch my connection. Which leads to the dislike."

Pros: "We ultimately landed safely."
Cons: "The flight was 40 minutes late on departure and arrival. The front landing gear was not functioning properly so we circled the airport to have the tower verify whether the landing gear was down. In the meantime the flight attendant prepared us for an emergency landing with our hands crossed in front of us. It was the scariest flight I've ever taken."
Pros: "The service"
Pros: "Courteous attendants and overall great flight"
Cons: "The mixed trail mix, honestly that's all :)"
Pros: "Delayed Flight, late flight attendant that delayed flight 1.5 hr. Causing many to miss overseas connections. Changed arrival terminal."
Cons: "Explained flight delay due to one attendant not showing up. Needs to be a better back up system."
Pros: "Everything went well."
Cons: "Well to start off, this was my very first time flying on United and both flights had minor trouble. The first flight had a delay that almost caused me to miss the next flight. The second flight had a minor delay but I made it home at the scheduled time. Other than that the flight was very good."
Pros: "The flight attendants were great."
Cons: "My flight was late and I missed my connecting flight. The next flight I got put on was delayed several times. I'm in the military and I was late checking into my command."
Pros: "Uneventful. Pleasant staff."

Pros: "nicest flight attendants and very friendly, thoughtful service. thanks for a great flight!"
Cons: "Entertainment Did not work properly."
Pros: "Everything was good."

Pros: "Everything no line Quick best ride I ever had Thankyou"
Pros: "Overall flight was Okay. United has been my favorite airline since 1971. "Fly The Friendly Skies of United""
Cons: "Very tight seating My wife said it seamed as though the lavitory hadn't been cleaned in a month. I didn't use it though."
Cons: "The flight was delayed multiple times causing me to have to literally run across airport to catch international connecting flight. Gate crew did very little to assist me in securing an alternate flight. On board crew did little to assist me in finding out information and getting me off the plane quickly to get to my connecting flight. Overall they showed little empathy and customer service."
Pros: "The flight itself was very convenient and quick."
Cons: "We were delayed and sitting on the plane for almost 4 hours and were left with few explanations. The crew was not friendly."
Pros: "It's funny that they try to sell you the entertainment .nobody buys it, nobody."
Pros: "I like the seats and the leg space .they were very comfortable ."
Cons: "No comment"
Pros: "food and crew"
Cons: "NO leg room."
Pros: "The flight was short"
Cons: "We had to walk almost halfway to Newark just to get to the flight. It was outside on the Tarmac at the very very very end of the terminal, I've never seen anything like it before. We also left a travel folder in the seat back pocket containing important documents and a sealed envelope of 1000$ USD. We immediately called to retrieve it and at first were told to file a complaint online, no matter how many times we tried to tell them that time was of the essence in this situation. We also begged the united airlines personnel to speak with a manager and he wouldn't put one on the phone. In the end all they could tell us is that the folder "wasn't there""
Cons: "My tv wasn't working which made it boring for a 6 hour flight and flight delayed"
Pros: "Couldn't have asked for more. Quick flight l. Got in early!"
Pros: "Plane was amazing. Crew great."
Cons: "Portion of food was extremely small.music selection could be more up to date."
Pros: "Smooth flight until very last minute. Landing was rough, very abrupt descent."

Cons: "There was a delayed my flight, arrived late, delayed in the plane getting off, nothing but delays."

Pros: "Wine was good and generous pours were nice."
Cons: "Turkey was terrible never offer it again. Bread was stale. Get better coffee"
Pros: "The snack"
Cons: "For the price I paid, it was a terrible seat, no room with 2 people sitting on either side."
Pros: "The boarding process got people on the plane quickly."
Cons: "None of the entertainment units worked in my entire section, about 19 rows all together. I was not able to access the light or call function. These should be separated from the media units and should be functional at all times regardless of technical issues. Food choices were interesting. The barley salad was quite strange. I would take that off the menu, if possible. It was quite inedible. Flavor profile was not good."
Cons: "Seats are a bit cramped"
Pros: "Very satisfied."
Pros: "It was a very comfortable flight with a window seat which I prefer. Service was extremely good from checkin to boarding to the onboard crew who looked after us well the whole flight. I actually thought all the food options were very tasty and portions acceptable. We even got in half an hour earlier which was a bonus."
Cons: "The trip to Dublin two weeks or so before was not as comfortable as I was assigned a seat in the very last row on the aisle which meant that even if I was able to fall asleep, I would have been jostled repeatedly by people using the lavatories in the back of the plane. Also those seats do not fully recline and if they are going to charge more for other seats in the plane, then they should be charging less for those seats which offer less space and on the aisles, unintended bumping by fellow passengers walking through tight aisles."
Pros: "Nothing. I did not know it was code-shared by United, otherwise I would never take a United flight. This is the second terrible experience in a row. Our flight was delayed. My wife and I somehow to our connecting flight by running all the way and requesting people to let us go ahead of them. However, United did not send our bags fast enought and deliverd them to our place the next day. This created a lot of inconvinience as I was scheduled to go for a business related conference in Chicago. United - you suck! Hate your service for the core. I hope I never have to fly United again."
Cons: "I did not know it was code-shared by United, otherwise I would never take a United flight. This is the second terrible experience in a row. Our flight was delayed.

This created a lot of inconvinience as I was scheduled to go for a business related conference in Chicago. United - you suck! Hate your service for the core. I hope I never have to fly United again."
Pros: "No delays and on time arrivals, courteous staff"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Crew was wonderful and snacks were average"
Cons: "The seat back was very uncomfortable but this was a short flight with a small plane. Not terrible but below average."
Cons: "These morning flights are often late. And they don't change the departure time on the app until after takeoff. Shows I time until you land. Very tough to schedule meetings around."
Pros: "The smooth ride"
Cons: "Could not cross my legs Not enough room for food and diabetes kit Flight information would not load"
Pros: "It was a quick flight"
Cons: "Crowded not a lot of room"
Pros: "Flights were on time..."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable and good amount of leg room"
Cons: "No fault"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by traffic control in NYC. Instead of just informing passengers why the flight was delayed, they just ignored the passengers and made people queue"
Pros: "boarding went smoothly for the most part staff was helpful"
Cons: "somehow the plane landed late (even though we took off on time) then we got stuck on the plane"
Cons: "paying for seats"
Pros: "Flight crew was amazing, they really work hard to make up for the bare bones no frills flight."
Cons: "$45 for a carry on? Seats are like folding chairs. They don't even recline. $3 for a bottle of water? on a 4 hour flight, no snacks, beverages and a barely padded metal chair that doesnt even recline? For a short hop it would be ok. For a trip cross country. NO WAY!"
Pros: "On time flight. I'd fly frontier again Flight time was changed flying back into charlotte which caused my family to miss flight however supervisor was very nice and got us on the next flight with no hassle! Now that is customer service! Thank u thank u!!!"
Cons: "Had to pay for 1st check in bag"
Pros: "I liked the fact that the stewardess apologized after she realized that she assumed wrong."
Cons: "A stewardess yelled to get my dad off the plane because he was "drunk". This was not the case, he is on medication and needed to take it. I was very hurt and embarrassed because I was already concerned for my dad and there were many people on the plane. It was disappointing."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled and I was told my only option was to wait 5 days or take my money back. Frontier refused to help me get on another airline to get to my destination. So I end up with a $150 refund and a last minute flight that costs me $600. Terrible customer service. Any other airline would've put me on another flight. never using Frontier again!!"
Cons: "Outgoing flight was delayed by 18 hours. Cancelled my inbound flight and purchased a last minute flight with another airline and still haven't received a refund."
Pros: "Quick easy no hassle"
Cons: "Having to pay alacarte for everything"
Cons: "It was late, uncomfortable, and the ticket counter refused to help. Never again."
Pros: "You pay for what you get for No delays Nice flight attendants I would flight again"
Cons: "- No complementary snacks - No move or entertainment"
Cons: "Flight was delayed over 2 hours. Was forced to pay for an upgraded seat, even though I had already checked in. I will not fly with frontier airlines again. Customer service was neither friendly or helpful with answering any of the questions regarding the flight delays."
Pros: "I like everything about this airline..take off was on time...even landing was before schedule time.."
Cons: "i liked everything....I didn't had no problems...."
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that this airline is suppose to be the affordable airline and I actually spent more on this flight than my Delta flight and I got less out of it. There was no wifi available, if I wanted a drink or snack I had to pay for it and the seats weren't as comfortable as well as no power outlets available. I also had to pay for my carry on. I will no longer fly frontier. I do have to say the staff we very kind and professional."
Pros: "Leg room was decent"
Cons: "Had to pay for y carry on and I wasn't sure why. Hospitally wasn't very good"
Pros: "Bags made it home"
Cons: "Delayed waiting for Captain; delayed for revised flight plan; still flew into bumpy air. No sick bags in seatbacks."
Pros: "Trip was cancelled. Don't overbook flights on important holidays. What a travesty it was to cancel the special event due to not being able to get there."
Cons: "Earlier notice of flight cancellation by Frontier Airlines would have helped. The Charlotte Airport was close to chaos due to the lack of management of the many people there trying to be processed. This experience was a nightmare and I have lost all trust in Frontier Airlines going the extra mile to make things work smoother. It is known that holidays will have more people in the terminal. Plans by all airlines and the airport should be in place, including hiring more workers, to make the flow and the flights work better. Sometimes cancellations can't be avoided, but there should be a better alternative than being told that the next flight will be seven days later."
Pros: "There was nothing I liked."
Cons: "The seats were very uncomfortable, there was no entertainment, you have to pay $40 for carry on luggage. The flight got delayed 3 hours, the staff was rude to the passengers. We had to take a detour to Philadelphia instead of NY to refuel, which took an extra hour and a half. They gave us no snacks/vouchers in the mean time. We ended up arriving at 10pm instead of the original arrival time of 4pm."
Cons: "Had too wait over an hour to board. Too many baggage fees."
Cons: "I didnt like the fact that the flight was delayed and a notification wasn't sent to my phone. I had checked the status that night when I checked in and early in the morning and the system said that the flight was on time. It wasnt until I reached the airport and the lady behind the baggage counter told me that the flight was delayed for two hours. I went to go eat with my daughter at the Chilis restaraunt. I figired since the flight was delayed why not have some lunch and head to the plane an hour before take off time. I left the restarant and went through screening. One of the TSA memebers asked me why was I going in so early when the flight was on delayed. I let them know that the flight was suppose to be taken off in an hour so they let me through. As I'm walking through the terminla they have someone walking bu asking if anyone was getting on the frontier flight. I told them that I was on that flight and they told me I needed to hurry up because the plane was about to leave. I became nervous ans started running down the gate to make it to the plane. I'm running with a two year old so Im pretty sure that you can only imagine how difficult that was. Once I reached the gate I was out of breath and it was suppose to be eight minutes before we took off. However we sat on the plane for about another thirty minutes before we left. I feel as though the communication with the airline is not there 100% and if you are sitting in an airport you should be able to hear the update especially when they are not planned ir taking place at a time that is different from what was already relayed."
Pros: "flight was only delayed because of weather. captain was good to explain and we didn't lose any time in transit."
Cons: "there is no organization, zoning was called two at a time vs. one at a time to allow for ease of lining up."
Cons: "Its only airline that i travelled with till now that doesnt offer beverages.......i asked for little hot water for baby bottle even that was given reluctantly.... Pretty disappointing"
Pros: "Nothing, never got the chance to board the flight."
Cons: "There was no indication received that Frontier required a check in of 45 minutes ahead of the flight time. And even though I was 2 minutes shy of that time, Frontier crew still did not allow me to check in. RIDICULOUS!!! No other airline has this bogus requirement. In addition, Frontier doesn't give an option for rebooking for another day, which may require an additional fee (as other airlines do). The only remedy for missing a flight is moving to Frontier's next scheduled flight (that is, the next day for a trip from Atlanta because Frontier only has one flight leaving Atlanta per day). Of course, this didn't work for me because I needed to be in New York on the day of my scheduled flight. $200 DOLLARS GONE!! In conclusion, I will never book another trip with Frontier. Also, I will never use another source to acquire a ticket because that source may not provide me with certain requirements for the airlines it sells for."
Cons: "I booked because of the cheap rate. Only to find out at the airport that they charge 25 for carry on luggage...I knew they charged for checking luggage but for a carry on?! ridiculous. Adding those $50, price is the same or more expensive than other better airlines. There was no food whatsoever. Almost 4 hr flight and no food....the food they sell is basically snacks...not even a sandwich. The seats are insanely thin and hard. Entertainment? You have to pay for that. Never seen this kind of horrible service. I lost my flight coming back from NY because of the bad weather conditions. The airport was insane, we got off in the middle of the freeway because cars were not moving and started running. I left 3hs30 before my flight and still lost it...thats how crazy it was. Not only they didnt offer any help, they wanted to charge penalty and put me on a flight 4 days from then. Tried calling and explaining, no one cares. Never flying this company again"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 5 hours. Seats are uncomfortable. Hidden fees make flight as expensive or more expensive than other airlines."
Pros: "Both flights arrived early. The seat was comfortable enough"
Cons: "It should have been made clear at time of purchase that carryon baggage is so expensive. Also, I did not like to pay extra to reserve a seat, but it seemed that I could not complete the advance checkin otherwise."
Pros: "I had an enjoyable experience with Frontier. Staff and Crew were amazing. The only minor gliche is the seats or maybe just my seat didnt recline. Other than that I enjoyed my flight to NY. Im sure ill enjoy the flight back to Atl as well...hopefully!"
Pros: "The flight was quick and the crew was mostly friendly. Trenton was a nice slow paced airport to land in"
Cons: "I didn't like having to wait on the plane to unload because another plane was unloading at the same time and Trenton only unloads one at a time. Almost missed my rental car"
Pros: "Not sure what you mean by "Food" and "Entertainment". There were none and none expected. Frontier is a funky airline. Its website is misleading. After you've bought your ticket, it suggests that you have to pay extra for a seat and for your bags (even carry-on). I was a first-time Frontier customer and I didn't pay those extras on-line and never was charged for them. I'm not complaining -- they just need to get their act together. All in all, a decent routine air travel experience."
Cons: "I did not like the counter person messing up my baggage fee 4 times and then the flight attendant spilling my drink all over me."
Pros: "NOTHING ABOUT THIS FIRST EXPERIENCE AND MAY SERIOUSLY NOT FLY FRONTIER AGAIN."
Cons: "TOO PRICEY FOR A 1ST CHECKED BAG. REQUESTD/PREFRRED WINDOW OR AISLE SEAT AND WAS DENIED WHEN THEY WERE EMPTY SEATS ON MY FLIGHT AND AFTER BEING TOLD IT WAS A FULL FLIGHT - THIS WAS A LIE. STA IN A MIDDLE SEAT WHERE ON MY RIGHT AND LFT SIDES WERE TWO HEAVY SEAT PASSENGERS WHER ONE OBVIOUSLY SHOULD HAV BOOKED 2 SEATS. I HAD TO SIT UNCOMFORTABLE THE ENTIRE TRIP - NOT GOOD. MY REQUEST TO MOVE WAS NEVER ANSWERED AND IGNORED. AND, FLIGHT WAS DELAYED DUE TO AN EQUIPMENT ISSUES CAUSING ME TO BE LATE TO A MAJOR EVENT. CHECK IN PROCESS WAS HORRIBLE, LONG AND OTALLY DISORGANIZED. I WILL THINK HARD BEFORE I FLY FRONTIER AGAIN."
Cons: "The flight was a rip-off. I was charged for seating and carry-on luggage which were not on the advertised price."
Cons: "Unfriendly crew"
Pros: "I got what I paid for! Seats had more legroom than expected."
Cons: "no food or entertainment were provided as part of fee"
Pros: "The boarding process was efficient, and the crew was very professional. It was inexpensive!"
Cons: "The only seats that recline are those you pay extra for. Everything is a la carte and an extra charge -- the baggage, the seats, even the coffee. It's totally worth it for the inexpensive ticket, but you need to watch the add-ons or you could easily jack up the price of your ticket quickly. For short flights, not having a reclining seat is fine, but it would be worth paying for one for longer flights."
Pros: "Speed of service and def love the price ☺️"
Cons: "No food, no entertainment..."
Cons: "They lost my bag - first time flying Frontier. Bad first impression to say the least."
Pros: "The crew was very attentive."
Cons: "The flight was 2 hours delayed."
Pros: "Fast and easy"
Cons: "Carrying fee"
Cons: "$40 for a carry on bag is outrageous. Will never fly frontier again"
Pros: "more leg room. crew was nice, polite and organized"
Cons: "don't even get nuts or cookies. Just water."
Pros: "Flight was late, seats were terrible, food service minimal, but price was FANTASTIC. Overall -- just fine."
Pros: "Crew on board was friendly enough."
Cons: "Thin aluminum seats covered with thin vinyl padding. Get ready for a stiff back and a sweaty butt. New and improved seat tray table - shrunk down to the size of an iPad mini... Great. Tea is no longer free. A checked bag fee applies (fine). But a carry on bag fee?? Even better - the carry on bag fee is MORE than the checked fee. Hilarious. This is the first airline that did not do me the courtesy of an upgrade to emergency exit row at the gate (I'm 6'5). How much for that extra legroom? $80. On a $150 flight. Awesome. Some frontiers are worth exploring. This one holds nothing but shock and dismay. AVOID AT ALL COSTS."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly."
Cons: "Paying a carry-on fee felt like I was being nickel-and-dime'd and it didn't help that the seating felt very tight and uncomfortable. Will not fly with Frontier Airlines again."
Cons: "Need to be careful ... Lends you to believe you have to pay to get a seat- if you check in online. Not clear you are automatically assigned a seat you can pay to upgrade but it is not clear."
Cons: "Seats don't recline, plane was freezing, only offered water"
Cons: "The flight could have happened"
Pros: "Yes !!! They change my seats for take my family closer..."
Cons: "I think the fly is with much people. One seat in the middle with no body is better in this time for Security COVID."
Pros: "The window seat was comfortable"
Cons: "Faster takeoff"
Pros: "Plane was new and I also liked the fact that they did not charge you to breathe you only have to pay extra for everything else even a cup of water cost three dollars"
Cons: "They charge you for everything including water for three dollars. Their baggage has a maximum weight of 40 pounds unlike any other airline. They make you pay for carry-ons. They make you pay to pick your seat. You have to pay extra for everything so the bottom line is spirit is probably the most expensive airline to fly. The seats are tiny the trays are tiny, they don’t have TVs, seats do not recline. First and last time Flying with them. My bags were 42 pounds and 46 pounds and I had to pay and additional $30 for each of them."
Pros: "Nothing, I am so disappointed, my reason for going to New Jersey was to say goodbye to my Father, the doctors at the VA Hospital Brooklyn told me that my Father is dying. I am here in Houston Texas while my Father is dying in Brooklyn, N.Y. My heart is hurting."
Cons: "They could have paged me, not all employees speak clearly. If you really care, call me right now for O am sitting in the airport going nowhere. Theresa Matthews (832) 891-9022"
Pros: "Not much to like with not much to offer"
Cons: "Limited space on seats. Over booking on the flight. Paying double for a carry on luggage that I could’ve paid half price for if I took a different airline. 110$ down the drain just for a small suitcase. Ridiculous. I will not ride with Spirit again."
Pros: "The time fly last"
Cons: "Price from menu are ridiculous expensives. Two hours fly without a glass of water for free? Come on!!"
Pros: "loved that they gave away free miles. on time for everything."
Pros: "The flight was not canceled"
Cons: "We were leaving “in 10 minutes” for an hour. Some better communication would have helped."
Pros: "ER EXIT SEAT"
Cons: "Lines charges for carry on charges for food. That is why is called BARE FARE! Terrible."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 45 minutes."
Pros: "What a lousy airline, cheap doesn’t mean bad service."
Cons: "Lost my flight, no calls for boarding, just a line was the explanation no one cares, lousy employees and they don’t care."
Cons: "Said I missed my flight I was there 30 minutes early wanted me to play an additional 99 dollars to get another flight when my plane hadn’t left the ground yet"
Pros: "My seat was the best and only thing about this nightmare. I fully intend on writing a detailed letter to you to Spirit to TSA to MCO to whomever I need to in order to either be fully compensated or have the nation alerted to this farce of a company."
Cons: "Spirit airlines in its entirety. The website the process the boarding the lies the prices the phony employees the rude service. With one exception. Natalia at the entrance of MCO when you check in. Poised calm and very professional after her it went downhill fast."
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "Uncomfortable plane and the people sucked"
Cons: "The flight attendant on the red eye was talking and laughing the whole time. Very rude, inconsiderate, and unprofessional. Seats are very uncomfortable."
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable, no space I felt like I was sitting in the next persons lap. Food and drinks were expensive...never AGAIN"
Pros: "Everything was good for me"
Cons: "The luggage fee , 50$ each way only carry bag , maby too all the local travel the customer paid I don’t know it’s my first to travel inside , before was only internatinal travel"
Pros: "There are very punctual. The pilot did a great job, it was a very smooth ride."
Cons: "One of the Flight attendants was very rude and condescending to passengers. Not very pleased with having to pay for your carry on."
Pros: "Exciting the aircraft"
Cons: "The whole experience is worth the low fare, rather pay a little more that have Spirit haggle you for luggage, fee seating fee, beverage fee and what else. In the end its cheaper getting on to a normal airline with a seat that reclines, something to drink at no charge and no additional fees. You end up saving ZERO with Spirt Air"
Cons: "We had to board the flight, then unboard due to delays, and then re-board half hour later."
Cons: "The entire flight had no reclining seats on a red eye!!!! The seats also had thin cushioning and were very uncomfortable. One of the worst flights I have ever taken. Never flying again with spirit even if they pay me to fly on their cheap airplanes"
Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "No comment"
Cons: "Their fares weren’t that low to begin with, then on top Of that they chgd 17 bucks to pick a seat, and 55 bucks a pc for carryons! The seats were basically a towel on a plastic chair with a back and the seats didn’t recline at all."
Pros: "Great staff. Great ventilation"
Cons: "No complimentary drinks or snacks. Delays were too long. No entertainment."
Pros: "The Crew at the desk."
Cons: "My Bag is lost and yet to be found"
Pros: "Nothing! Spirit is trash"
Pros: "Good flight overall."
Cons: "It's more about the airline than anything else. The cost of the checked bag should be included in the fare price. Because I couldn't log into my account online prior to check-in, I ended up paying $52 each way for my bag. As far as the aircraft itself, I found the seats and leg room space to be smaller than other airlines."
Pros: "Crew was kind, after some coaxing waited for a family member of a fellow passenger who wandered too far from gate to make it back in 10 minutes."
Cons: "Need updates and alerts on delayed flight!! I was checking my phone every 15 minutes from the restaurant next to the gate, reloading the status page, and the status that it changed from delayed two hours to taking off now happened within a 10 minute window. Next thing I know they are calling for final boarding, last call, even though half the flight didn't make it there yet because they didn't update that the delay was cancelled until minutes before boarding. I understand we all need to take off ASAP, but they've got to understand if everyone was standing at the gate, there would be no room to stand so we all disperse and know we can check our smartphones for updates."
Pros: "They refunded us"
Cons: "Refused to accommodate us or put us on a different flight."
Pros: "Good staff on flight. There was plenty of empty seats and I got moved to a more convenient spot."
Cons: "Website is not clear. My carry on had unclear dimensions and I had to pay extra at the airport."
Pros: "Quick Flight"
Cons: "Baggage Fees"
Cons: "Terrible landing. Descent had way more twist and turns than any other flight and seemed much longer than normal."
Pros: "The plane seemed new"
Cons: "Paying for every single thing - including carry on bag and water. The low price no longer remains low when charged for everything. Flight crew and other positions didn't have good customer service either."
Cons: "Don't have any intertainmen in the flight....TV no snacks you have to paid it.."
Cons: "Getting checked in and checking a bag was chaos. Then we waited nearly 45 minutes for our baggage to come."
Cons: "Baggage fees extremely high..even if you take it on the plane. If you do t have access to a computer a charge to check I at the airport. Have to pay for membership. Time you pay all the high fees no cheaper then other airlines hat have better service."
Cons: "i was seated next to a women that clearly needed two seats. when she boarded someone should have seen this . I was stuffed into a seat and couldn"t move for my 21/2 hr flight. I didn"t want to make a sene but Really? BETHIE DAYTON"
Pros: "Departure and arrival time was awesome including the crew members."
Cons: "My baggage fee is too expensive"
Cons: "there is no (free) food, there is no entertainment, and the boarding process was poorly done, had far too employees and miserable"
Cons: "All the extra fees"
Cons: "I will never fly Spirit again. I knew from one previous experience that they were the pits regarding seat room; but I never figured they were theives They never sent a confirmation of ticket. THEY HAVE ABSOLUTELY NO HUMAN BEING TO SPEAK WITH IN PERSON on their telephone contact number, no matter what button you push. The transaction didn't post on my credit card, so I assumed it did not go through. I bought another ticket. Five days later they put both tickets through. that's it I am done with this cluster F$%K airline."
Pros: "Everything except the delay"
Cons: "The delay"
Cons: "our flight took off and landed 40 minutes late because the pilot lost his cellphone prior to boarding, so we had to wait for it to be retrieved. every. single. standard. thing. comes with a cost. no temperature control (everyone was freezing) no seats, despite paying $35 extra, recline speaker volume is uncontrollable and incredibly loud"
Cons: "That you have to pay for a seat, pay for carry on and pay for a cup of coffee!!!! Ridiculous! Will never fly spirit again! First and last time!"
Cons: "Missed my flight because of driver and couldn't b refunded my money nor another flight I won't buy another ticket from spirit no more"
Pros: "On time boarding - friendly staff - price friendly."
Cons: "Pockets in seats too small to put anything - no Spirit card in pocket to see what items to purchase - unclear instructions and not too friendly staff when arriving at airport to know how to get bag checked - boarding pass would not display on email to print"
Pros: "I liked the cabin crew and the pilot."
Cons: "I didn't like the experience up to the point where I got on the plane. First the flight was delayed, these things happen though so I wasn't that upset about it. Then we got there an hour and forty minutes before departure and waited in line for baggage for an hour only to be told we were in the wrong line. Then we were directed to the correct line and waited another 20 minutes for baggage. Thankfully there wasn't a line for the security check and we made it to the gate with 5 minutes to spare. Needless to say we will never be flying this airline again."
Pros: "Clean, simple, comfortable"
