We were making a move to Mexico from the U.S., and we were amazed at how pleasant the trip was. We had quite a few pieces of luggage, and everyone was extremely helpful. The crew and staff from both Delta and AeroMexico were great, and made our trip as easy as possible. Thanks to all!

Less crowded aircraft

Check in in Cancun took at least 2 1/2hours standing in line at Delta.

Pros: "Boarding"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "Crew was professional and understanding/empathetic given the circumstances. We were delayed 4 hrs."
Cons: "While the weather delay was out of everyone’s control and it was obvious the pilot was doing everything he could to get the pale airborne... i feel their could have been better communication from the ground as to our take off time. They kept changing our time and thus we were trapped on the tarmac for 4 hrs. Had we known, some of us could have gotten off the plane and rerouted so as not to miss our connecting flight. We and others were stuck in Atlanta, had t okay for a hotel....and missed a day of vacation....☹️"
Pros: "That it got me where I needed to go."
Cons: "The crew, the food, the tv capability, the amenities. Overall it was the worst international flight I have ever been on. They confiscated my unopened beer I purchased after security point. They had me assigned to a wrong seat, so I had to fight my way 20 rows up as people are filing into their seats. The hot towel to clean your hands was dry and cold. The roll was hard as a rock and cold. The crew was rude and unapproachable. It took almost 3 hours to get them to reset my tv and when she finally did it glitched the whole time I tried watching it. The croissant was literally cooked to the paper and had to rip apart Croissant to get the paper off. They didn't serve the cocktail as promised. It was a pretty poor performance on all levels, and if this survey truly means anything, I hope this gets remedied."
Pros: "Kudos to the employees who really tried to help rather than pay mere lip service."
Cons: "The plane experienced a mechanical issue forcing us to return to the gate after waiting for an hour. The staff was clearly overwhelmed and focused on moving us along (Cheryl) rather than resolving our need to reach our destinations.it wasn’t until we found one extremely patient and persistent employee (LaShondra-?) who booked us through NYC rather than Atlanta so we reached Rochester on the same day. So the questions are- why don’t the airport hold a larger inventory of parts, why aren’t there back up planes and why doesn’t the software better cope with these types of situations?"
Pros: "The gate agents were nice enough."
Cons: "We sat on the tarmac for an hour without information as to why we were delayed. We missed our connection in Atlanta, even though we arrived at the gate in time to see the gate agent shut the door while we were running and waving. We arrived at the gate 8 minutes before the flight departure time also. The flight attendant on the flight from Fayetteville just handed out water and cookies without asking what you wanted. She had coffee and snack mix but didn’t ask anyone, just handed them what they got. Overall I was very disappointed in the flight from Fayetteville, NC to Atlanta and with the gate agents at the Atlanta airport. I usually expect more from delta. They didn’t offer vouchers to make up for the missed connection or offer to pay for a hotel since the next flight out was the next morning."
Cons: "... on top of that I kindly requested to speak with a supervisor and i was denied it. As a customer I deserved that. I would a ticket with Aerolineas and nowhere it said it was delta. I followed the baggage allowance explained on kayak website and on Aerolineas Argentinas. I took a bicycle which is free and i pay $100 to packed it as Aerolineas wanted. When I arrived it was a Delta flight and they told they don't allow bicycles and that i had to play $150. Aerolineas website and kayak clearly says that bicycles were free on my flight. I show the agent my ticket and that no where it said delta to consider what he was saying since it is an alliance but i was not informed about it. He said no and after wait there for a while before boarding i kindly ask to speak with a supervisor and the denied it and disappeared. I request a refund of my fee to you for providing incorrect information."
Pros: "The movies offered were decent"
Cons: "I paid extra for a window seat I sit down after they squeezed us all in like sardines and come to my surprise there is no window in my aisles it had been covered up in plastic . First making my area narrow than all the other seats and between the plane leaving late and the terrible process of loading people on the plane . Delta airlines was all about the up sale from charging for every bag to charging for internet ,food so on and so forth. Also one bathroom in the middle of the plane ? REALLY ? Out of tissue , paper towels , and tissue one hour into the flight . What in the Hell is going on with this airline ? Won’t fly with them again ."
Cons: "At least one hour late"
Pros: "I liked the cookies and juice. The interactive screen to watch something. The cleanliness. The price. On time. The service. Thank you. The excitement of flying."
Pros: "Boarding was super quick, as crew wanted to leave before the strong rains and winds came through, so we left early! Plane itself was very modern and surprisingly comfortable, as much as a small space can be. Good amount of entertainment, and the crew were pleasant. And flight itself was smooth with very little turbulence which helps!"
Cons: "Had to pay for food, which was a little annoying considering the cost of the flight. Entertainment was very American led... but I guess not surprising considering it’s delta."
Pros: "On time flight courteous service"
Cons: "Food"
Cons: "flights all on Delta - about one a week for 3 months straight - and yet when Delta cancelled my flight and re-booked they did not give me any upgrade or loyalty as I saw it - I had paid extra for Delta Comfort and they told me the flight they re-booked me on simply did not have any comfort available. However, I was not the one canceling the flight and re-booking - that is their problem and after so much loyalty for years I feel like I should have gotten some kind of upgrade for free...If I have to cancel - I have to pay fees - but if they cancel - I lose ...despite being a very loyal SkyMiles customer. I am quite disillusioned with Delta now and will have to look around to see what other airlines there are now - and my entire family - and what kind of loyalty they give to their loyal customers. It needs to be a two-way"
Pros: "Waiting in the departure lounce was ok"
Cons: "Boarding was kind of stupid Delta is boarding in Zones and starts at the front instead of starting boarding passangers sitting at the back of the plane and moving forward NO they do it the wrong way and due to that boarding takes to long and makes you frustrated."
Pros: "I can’t make it in mexico city on tuesday, wednesday’s performance had to be cancelled and we need to pay the cancellation fee 11500 mexican pesos, please reimburse on the credit card"
Cons: "I can’t make it in mexico city on tuesday, wednesday’s performance had to be cancelled and we need to pay the cancellation fee 11500 mexican pesos of the studio and musicians"
Pros: "Going by and come Ming back Atlanta check in desk was the rudest Laziest most disrespectful emoyees I have ever came across . Check in person played on her phone and didn’t even look at you when asking what seat was I assigned . Going from Atlanta to Fort Lauderdale the check in person was so rude there where 5 people askI’m her what’s her problem . The crew the flight was excellent but the Atlanta check in desk really dropped the ball 2 times . If I was the manger I would fire the whole staff and If I was above the manager I would fire them as well as I’m. Sure this is not an isolated occasion."
Pros: "Crew was very good I would say that 5"
Cons: "This Delta flight did not have seat back screens to watch in flight entertainment. You needed to use your smartphone or tablet keeping in mind Amazon tablets won’t work. You needed to go to delta website and choose what want to watch the you needed to have Gogo Flight entertainment app already on smartphone and then would work. Not easy even for me a vivid user of tablets and smartphones. The seats had miniumal room available between seats it felt like I am on 5’qq so couldn’t imagine anyone taller that comfortable unless get first class. I even upgraded for “comfort” section which gave you a few inches extra. And wdith of chair me being a 36 waist was a little squeezed in. Crew was very good tho I will say that. But I laways fly JetBlue or Virgin America, or Alaskan Air for reason of more comfort and lower prices ticket but this time on flight close to my destination was Delta which I Flew for free, I would much rather buy ticket on the three others I fly if could have."
Pros: "I like that I had a window seat with enough space to stretch my legs and look at the view."
Cons: "I was shy about 45 min of boarding my flight. I didn't want to do self check out because I wanted to make sure my Itinerary was right so I went to a clerk. She did my boarding pass by verifying who I was and by my Id and printed out. I then go to security they asked for my Id and boarding pass. I gave it to them and she was like Ingrad is not your name doesn't match your ID. I said no it doesn't your going to have to go back up and get my boarding pass redone again. I was Furious and frustrated because I didn't want to miss my flight over a mix up from one of your Clerks and at the time she never asked me if I wanted a window seat or not . This made for a bad experience going to Atlanta but I was grateful that I didn't miss my flight."
Pros: "Nice flight nice crew just about as good as you would want"
Pros: "The crew is always wonderful. The complimentary beverage and snack really makes the flight better, even in the tiny seats. The flights with tv screens and charging ports are great, although they only seem to be on my shorter of the two connecting flights."
Cons: "Crew allows the first zones to place both their carryon and personal items in overhead storage, filling the bins before many travelers board the plane. We are then asked to check our bag, and are forced to put our 1 bag between our legs, whole many people stored two overhead. Flight was delayed a few minutes and time was not made up in air. Delta changed a few of our flights before we were even off the plane, while other passengers were allowed to keep their original flight (originally we all had the same connecting flight). Looks to me like they overbooked and pulled some of us randomly. Also, my checked bag was sent on wrong plane, and sat unattended at next airport for 2 hours."
Pros: "Flight went off pretty well. On time no complaints."
Cons: "Somewhere somehow you need to know that, although partners, Delta and West Jet do not share computer systems and that they are two completely different airlines. This affects ,sometimes, how luggage is handled especially when you land in another country and you have to manually transfer your own - and nobody tells you. You actually change airlines. Itinerary implies West Jet controls the entire thing. Not the case. Better job economic explaining what to With luggage and that, while itinerant implies 1 airline, they are only partners and should be treated separately."
Cons: "The bulkhead sears had no electrical outlet"
Pros: "early take off and early landing"
Cons: "crying baby... passengers hanging out in the aisle... also lady sat in my emergency row seat and would not leave so I let her have it. also the lady next to that seat complained the whole time we tried to negotiate that seat. also the flight attendant that gave our section drinks seemed irritated and very rude. Older african american woman that stuck her finger in my face and the person next to me to ask her to stop her question as he picked up snacks that she dropped in the aisle. Kind of rude and kind of uncalled for. And the lady next to me (lauren) is an ER dr that had a layover in Atlanta for 4 hours to vacation with her fiance in the Caribbean..."
Pros: "Our Delta plane was brand spanking new. Everything worked and the inflight entertainment system was fantastic with many movies to choose from, free headphones, games, tv shows, etc. The crew was polite and the seating at least as comfortable as expected for a 4 hour flight."
Cons: "The restrooms in the rear of the plane were remarkably small, even by airline standards. I'm a somewhat larger person and I fit, but I know a lot of people who would literally not be able to fit on the toilet without touching both of the sidewalls or risk getting stuck in there. The boarding process at San Jose Del Cabo was the most ridiculous setup I've ever experienced. There were numerous flights boarding out of the same gates and at least 3 or 4 lines for different destinations forming on a ramp just outside the gates. There were guys with signs trying to herd people into the correct lines and then loading the people onto buses which took you out to the planes. The planes were loading from both the front and rear doors and people were getting tangled up inside because of the haphazard loading process. Very easy for a person to end up on an incorrect plane!!"
Cons: "You had me check my hand luggage with expensive items that did not arrive."
Pros: "Very pleasant customer service, excellent bag delivery service."
Pros: "Your entertainment system is fabulous!"
Cons: "We purchased a direct flight from Boston to Tampa. We paid extra for the convenience of a direct flight Our flight was changed without notification to a connecting flight that was leaving 10 minutes earlier and arriving 2 hours later. Due to malfunction with the kiosk and not a sufficient amount of agents at check in, we missed our flight by 4 minutes. The gate agent seemed to enjoy telling us, with our 10 month old baby, that we were too late. Our baggage, including car seat, had been loaded on the plane. We were reassigned to a flight the following morning. We missed a full day with family, had to travel back home without a car seat and return to the airport the following day. I was shocked and disappointed that not single Delta agent was accommodating or remotely helpful while we were at the airport. I've never had a problem with Delta before. We travel on regularly and would like to continue using Delta. I would like a voucher for my next Delta trip."
Pros: "Staff were friendly and attentive. Boarding was good - efficient and quick."
Cons: "Seats were not that comfortable. Aircraft very noisy. Competition offers a much better service. Transfer in Atlanta was a nightmare, taking almost two hours from landing to getting to the domestic gate for the next sector. only three immigration staff working."
Cons: "On the MSP to ATL leg the gate crew made a huge deal about checking rolling bags. They even stopped us at check-in and nearly begged us to check our bags pointing to the backed up jetway. But we had a lot of unpacking to do before checking our bags so we politely declined three times. On getting to our seats there were at least 8 open slots for bags near us. I heard a crew member call forward to say "tell them no more rollaboards" so they forced everyone left to check. On departure they slammed shut several very large empty overheads. WTF"
Cons: "the older stuardess on my flight from Cancun to Atlanta was very misinformed- told me my carry on wouldn't fit in the over head bin... it did. Told me I had to check my duty free liquor.. I didn't. Told me I couldn't bring all of my liquor in to the US... I could. I just kept saying ok to her just to shut her up, but she ensued with her comments and wrong info as if I don't travel as often as I do. Perhaps she was attempting to be helpful, but it came off as obnoxious and rude especially since she was wrong on every accord. Humbleness and customer service training would do her very good. All other DELTA staff have been great."
Pros: "Entertainment was good. Delta staff seemed flat compared to other delta flights I've been on."
Cons: "Space. Economy on a long flight is not ideal"
Pros: "for a 9.5 hour flight, the seat was actually pretty comfortable. The A330 is definitely more comfortable than 767. While the food sucked on my outbound flight from atlanta to london, the food on the amsterdam to atlanta flight was pretty good. there was a lunch, a snackbox and then a hot snack before landing. There was plenty of beer to drink so that made the flight better."
Cons: "first, the entertainment system was busted. you could use the flight tracker and play games, but couldn't watch any movies or tv shows. They only told us about this 5 minutes before boarding. There was wifi so you could stream shows to a tablet, but that assumed you had a tablet and that it was charged because the usb ports on the nonfunctioning entertainment system were, you guessed it, nonfunctional. Fortunately we had charged tablets and were able to stream some shows but they kept buffering and locking up because the gogo wifi wasn't working very well. About half the flight attendants were friendly but the other half obviously didn't want to be there. The last half hour was pretty bumpy due to remants of a hurricane in the area. The person behind me was frantically looking for a barf bag but we found out that most of the seats didn't have them. So that could have been ugly. I flew delta for the skymiles but based on this trip I will either fly on their partners (virgin, klm, airfrance) for reduced mile credit, or choose a different airline."
Cons: "Planned my trip for my birthday/10 year anniversary. The first leg of the trip, flying from ft Lauderdale to atlanta was ok except for the pilot having to circle around bc he was too close to the airplane in front to land. This made us supposedly late to our connecting flight which by the way was not supposed to leave before 8:10. My husband and I arrived at the gate about 10 minutes before only to be told that the door was locked. Needless to say, we weren't the only ones. When we got up to the desk, the attendant was extremely rude. I was having a conversation with my husband about a dog that had just passed us . She immediately made her way into the conversation asking me what i was saying. I told her I was talking to my husband about the dog and under her breath said : " I'm sure you were." I then told her that i was more than sure about what I was talking about. We get booked on another flight and my seat was the only one without a working monitor. We asked the suitardess to see o If there was anything that could be done They tried to reset it to no avail. Since we didn't say anything else, it was forgotten about. My husband shared his screen with me so that I wasn't totally bored on the flight. Not the way I wanted to start off my birthday but I'm glad that nightmare is over Delta really needs to retrain their employees on customer service bc it leaves a lot to be desired!"
Pros: "Flight attendants and cookies. That's it."
Cons: "We left DC late because of Delta's inefficient boarding process. We landed in Atlanta late. Our flight to Sioux Falls left early, without us. My pregnant wife and I made it to the gate 4 minutes before the scheduled departure and they told us the plane was already gone and there was no way for us to get on the plane. Our bags did make it to Sioux Falls, so my wife didn't have her prenatal vitamins, , we had no clean clothes and we were forced to spend the night in Atlanta. The saddest part of yet another terrible experience with Delta was that they offered us a "discounted" room at a terrible Howard Johnson for $72. I looked online and the same hotel was $65 to book on Kayak. So basically Delta was trying to scam us after they screwed us. Thanks Delta! Instead we paid $200+ to stay at an airport hotel. Every time I fly Delta I regret it, yet occasionally I get forced to take their awful airline to get somewhere I need to go. It never fails to add another bad Delta experience to my long list of failings from this SAD!!! airline."
Cons: "I am a 5'3" 125# woman who, unfortunately, had a middle seat assignment. The passenger to my right, on the aisle, weighed approximately 375# and took up 1/3 of my seat. The arm was not able to go down comfortably, and when it did it was not usable . The passenger on my left, window seat, was probably 6'7" and had to sit with a man spread in order to fit. I could not move and was extremely uncomfortable. The plane was overbooked so I was unable to move. Therefore, worst flight ever. Plus, I paid for a full seat and was only able to occupy half of it."
Cons: "Expected to pay £30 just to reserve a seat. Most of the top airlines allow this to be done for free. It's about time that Virgin Atlantic followed suit."
Pros: "The Economy seats with added space Plenty of space Cheerful crew"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Left reasonably on time, arrived a bit early, able to find overhead storage for my roll-on, even boarding in Zone 3"
Cons: "Very tightly packed; minimal comfort for the flight."
Cons: "Everything that could have gone wrong with my flights, went wrong. On my way from LA to Raleigh (through Atlanta), I was affected by the weather conditions at Atlanta. I understand that the weather is beyond Delta's scope of control, but customer service is not. I had to wait in line at LAX for 8 hours to even get information on what had happened, and what solutions were available. The customer service call center was collapsed, and at the airport counters at one point there was ONLY ONE DELTA REPRESENTATIVE serving a line of more than 100 upset customers. This IS Delta's fault, and it is unacceptable. This definitely was under Delta's control, but in order to save a few dollars in overtime for emergency staff Delta was willing to let its customers make terribly long lines, miss their flights, their connections and consequently their commitments. It is disappointing to observe how Delta believes that a few dollars saved on extra staff and emergency measures can offset the irreparable long term damage to its business due to upset customers. My way back from Raleigh to Los Angeles was also a disaster. Without any type of explanation and nothing more than an email announcing the change, the nonstop flight I bought was replaced by a 1-stop flight with connection in Atlanta. This was NOT THE PRODUCT I PURCHASED. There is a reason I paid a premium for a nonstop flight, and Delta did not hesitate in providing me with a less valuable product without any explanation or refund. Delta prioritizes its operational metrics - an obsession to fill and overbook its capacity - over its customers' experience, one again under the foolish belief that short term savings in any way offset the long term damage of disappointed and alienated customers. I will NEVER FLY DELTA AGAIN. I will do whatever I can to transmit my experience to everyone I know. At a time where major airline carriers are in the spotlight due to abusive practices (i.e. the United passenger case), I still find hope in knowing that alternatives such as Southwest still put their customers first, over the ethereal benefits that a few-dollar savings in operational expenses can provide."
Pros: "N/a"
Cons: "Delta costumer service was terrible. Cancelled my trip twice. They lied to us saying that they were going to give vouchers for hotel, that we were going to be automatically booked for next flight and that our bags would arrive with our flight. Waited 7hs to talk to an agent in the airport. 24h wait in Atlanta had to sleep in airport. They wanted me to wait three days in atlanta. They forced me to check a carry on because they didn't have room in the plane. They told me my bag would arrive with my flight. It never did. I still dont have by only bag. Unbelievable."
Pros: "Not too much this leg!"
Cons: "Baggage retrieval was horrendous! Absolutely a nightmare which after paying for 3 nights hotel with no discount, I was further inconvenienced by the inability to receive my 2nd luggage and after requesting it be delivered, I, I, tracked my bag and you chose to send it 3 days ahead to my destination and I HAVE NOT RECEIVED any acknowledgment of my online inquiry which is why I am complaining. I've had to purchase a new set of luggage AND will have to pay for them on my next 2 legs on Delta. I apologise for seeming so harsh as I know you've had so much trouble because of the tornadoes, but this leg of my trip cost me an additional $800.00 plus AUD and I was here in the US to care for my father who recently had a 2nd heart attack and my final days in USA were meant to be a holiday, and all I can say is the stress because these expenses have removed any enjoyment (I know I'm looking at this half empty, not half full). I'm glad to share this and hope you're company loses will be recouped after this mess! Daniel Grayson Craigieburn, VIC Australia"
Cons: "The redesign of seats means that very few of Delta's planes can actually accommodate a sherpa-style pet carrier, even though they are an industry standard for in-cabin travel. Further complicating the problem is that the clearance under the seat varies depending where in the cabin you're seated. It's become an extremely stressful proposition for which I have the privilege of paying an extra +$100 each way whilst having to give up one of my carry ons. As far as I can see, the charge is just straight up greed, since no one would be able to use the space beneath the seat in front of me, anyway, and carrying on my cat cause zero extra work for the crew. I'm going to have rethink my loyalty to Delta. At least with Southwest, they'll let me check two bags for no additional cost."
Pros: "Service was great"
Cons: "Food wasn't great cookie!"
Pros: "I trusted Delta to take of my clients; Delta usually did. Rather, the employees of Delta did. Now when I travel, I prefer Delta (when they aren't too much more economically). Let me change that to I used to prefer Delta, because the times, they are achanging. My home airport is Atlanta, I'm usually traveling to Seattle or Portland; Delta is king in those routes. There's more flight time options, and the entertainment available is better."
Cons: "Here's where the picky comes in. I downloaded the 'Go Go" wifi app beforehand. When I tried to connect I received a message that it wasn't available on my routes. Why couldn't they tell me that it might not work on my routes before they took my money? Further, why wasn't it available? It's not like I was going on a multi city/country trip, this was Atlanta to Portland non-stop. Then there's the 'Premier Seating". I opted for it on my outbound flight and received TSA Pre Check. I didn't buy the seating coming back; I did not receive TSA Pre Check. Coincidence? My fare was more than Alaska Airlines was offering it for, I paid for the wifi that didn't work, and in order to avoid the back of the plane, you must pay. So, I guess I'll be going to Alaska Airlines. They don't have as many flights, but I don't feel dinged for more money every time I turn around."
Cons: "Delta Flight #1661 I paid for 1st class. My first flight was late so I arrived at the gate after boarding began. When the gate attendant scanned my ticket another printed. When he handed me the ticket my seat had changed to seat 25E. I told the attendant that I had paid for first class. He asked me to step aside while he contacted his supervisor, Joe. Then I had to wait until ENTIRE flight had boarded which defeated part of the reason I paid for the upgrade. This was on top of the fact I was so thirsty because 1st flight didn't have drink service and because it was late I had to book it to the connection arriving sweaty, hot and needing to use the bathroom. I was told they had given my seat away to someone as a free upgrade. Joe offered me a $100 voucher to take other seat which was less than I paid for 1st class, plus the seat was a middle seat in the rear of the plane. When I told him as much, he tried to manipulate me by telling me that they would have to kick someone out of my seat. When I declined the downgrade, they made me stand by while they kicked someone out of my seat which was embarrassing and humiliating. Then, when they handed me a new boarding pass, it was not the seat I had paid for and selected, instead it was in the first row, which I’ve always hated because there is no under seat storage and I cannot keep my backpack with me. When I pay for first class, it is primarily so that I can board first and so that I have extra room to work (which I need access to my bag to do). While I was trying to take out the minimum of the things I needed from my bag and figure out how to manage without it, 3 times a flight attendant told me they had to take my bag (since I was the last person to board they tried to prevent me from using the bathroom and they were anxious to leave early). I tried to explain that Delta had prevented me from boarding earlier and that they gave away the seat I paid for which was NOT the first row."
Pros: "The 717 is a decent plane for short haul flights. Seats are comfortable. Delta crew was outstanding!"
Cons: "The general cabin vent (that runs down the length of the cabin) over 13E blows on the side of 13D occupant's head. Since Scranton is humid this time of year I also had heavily moisture-laden air blowing against me which occasionally felt like water droplets. The sound of forceful rushing air is annoying enough but the muscles in my neck were cramping due to the cold air on the first part of the flight. (This is NOT the personal, adjustable vent I'm talking about. I know how to turn them off and redirect air flow). Perhaps there is a a crew controlled adjustment that had been neglected during this flight. Started on the ground during boarding, continued throughout flight."
Pros: "The flight crew was nice and polite. They served drinks and snacks in a timely manner while on the flight."
Cons: "Flight was scheduled to leave early, the plane arrived, but they couldn't turn the plane around fast enough. We left the gat late, then pilot said we would still be arriving half an hour early. We arrived about 45 minutes late, and that was a problem because our connecting flight was due to depart now in 15 minutes. Lightning forced the airport to shutdown, which was great, we had a chance to catch our flight, but we were stuck in the airplane, and we couldn't get to our gate until the all-clear. I know this is not Delta's fault, but they did arrive quite late on a flight that, according to them, would be early. They also never communicated to the other flight that there were several passengers catching that connection. So by the time we had ran to catch our connection they had closed the ramp. Lightning hit again, and they shutdown the airport once again, so the airplane was still at the gate for about an hour, and they did not allow the 20+ passengers to board that plane, which was right there. So frustrating. The only thing that saved it was that our new flight was the new airbus, and although it left an hour and a half later, the comfort level was phenomenal."

The flight was on par with any flight zI had ever taken. the airport was extremely hard to navigate, harder than Ohare, in Chicago !

Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "That I made it there in one piece."
Cons: "Not worth saving a couple dollars. Front tier airlines does not allow you to pick your seats before hand nor does it allow you to select baggage and the app, it is recessed for whatever reason. The seats are extremely tiny the tree table is so small you can barely fit an English muffin on it. There is no entertainment whatsoever, there is no Internet on the plane, and if you want anything to eat or drink besides water you will be paying for it. I’m sorry to say but flying on frontier was more like a punishment for me. I always fly American and wanted to save a few dollars what a mistake! With American most the planes that I have flown in have free movie entertainment and everybody seat the seats are comfortable And recline. And the snacks are free along with the soda. Please think twice before flying frontier."
Pros: "It was a safe flight"
Cons: "The flight was initially delayed 1 hour early in the day and notification was sent out. The flight was delayed again later in the day and the notification was sent out but not so promptly. An announcement was made at the gate that the flight was further delayed because the flight attendants had to clear customs. The flight attendants showed up about 30 minutes later, carrying bags of food from the resurants in the airport. I understand the flight attendants need to eat, but our flight was delayed prior to their landing and this added an additional delay. In total my flight was delayed about 2.5 hours."
Cons: "It was a horrible experience that I have. They dropped us off Tennessee airport instead of Atlanta because of the power off. They made us sat on the airplane for almost 2 hrs then tell us to get out in Tennessee airport. They offered no compensation or direct us how to get back to GA. Everyone was so upset, we basically got stranded in Tennessee. We ask customer service for help, they told us that there was nothing we can do!!!!!! They told us to call the head quarter. And of course after waiting on the line for half an hour, they told us the same thing that we should talk to customer service at the airport. REALLY!!!!!!! We just been through it. I was exhausted and had no way to get back home to GA. My parents had to drive 8 hrs from Atlanta to Tennessee to pick me up. IT was not fair that they do that to us. It was not our fault that we got stranded. They should have offered us cars rental or hotels to accommodate . I would never flight with them again!!!"
Pros: "Pretty much nothing. I'M SORRY AS IT WAS MY FIRST TIME AND I have to tell you that I m usually pretty low maintenance....but damn ....this was was brutal! Price was was great... but not worth the experience."
Cons: "Seat comfort, cattle care of crew, no movie, no real food....you name it."
Cons: "Frontier seats are minimally padded and do not recline. It's difficult to sit in them for more than a couple of hours. Our 3.5 hour flight turned into a 7 hour flight after being unable to land because of storm conditions, circling for over an hour, and being rerouted to land at another airport for refueling before finally heading to our destination. It has been a week and our backs are still bothering us. We flew Frontier because it looked cheaper but after paying for luggage, seats, and food we would have been way better off to have flown on Southwest. We will never fly Frontier again."
Pros: "There was a very sensitive situation that occurred with a passenger. She had been in the wrong seat, and was asked to show the ticket for the proper seat and didn't have a ticket. The steward asked very professionally and calmly for the passenger to cooperate for the situation to be resolved. She was not cooperative to be polite. The security came and the the pilot, and everyone handled the situation very well. The last time she was asked to cooperate, she finally walked off the plane, on her own. My understanding is that she missed her original flight and boarded this plane. Not certain of the details, but I feel that everyone involved handled this very well."
Pros: "The price and schedule choice"
Cons: "They try to trick you into buying other things and speak in a condescending way on the website. There's no entertainment not even a magazine. The seats which are super ridiculously tight don't recline and there's no cushion for your head. You have to pay $3 for a soda and the batteries are so small you can barely fit which is great when there's pee all over the floor. The outbound flight was delayed over an hour with no explanation and perfect weather. When I asked for more water in the tiny cup, she poured it half way. I guess they are really trying to save money. Makes me wonder they took shortcuts on safety to save a few dimes."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "All the the hidden fees from the baggage to seat selection. No snacks or drinks were provided unless bought individually and the cost for the flight wasn't any cheaper than our flight up on United, which included everything at no additional charge. The customer service was awful and though we arrived at the airport over an hour and a half early, we almost missed our flight because checking in a bag was chaos (despite having checked in online the day before). There were no forms of entertainment on the flight, not even airline magazines, which made for a very tedious 2.5 hour flight in less than relaxing seats."
Pros: "The seats were spacious"
Cons: "When I went to check-in for my flight and get my boarding pass, the Frontier employee at the counter asked if we had paid for carry-on bags online. We said no and she looked at our bags and said we were fine. When we got to the gate however, I was stopped and told that I needed to pay for my bag. I asked to speak to a supervisor. I explained that their employee at check-in told us we did not need to pay for a carry-on. They still forced me to pay AND tried to charge me the gate price of $60 which I refused to pay. If they were going to charge me for a carry-on, they should have made that clear at the ticket counter where I would have paid $45. They were incredibly rude about it and it seemed like a scam they had planned out to try and get $15 more out of passengers."
Pros: "Nothing other than getting from Phoenix to Atlanta"
Cons: "The baggage check in process at Phoenix is a complete joke. What is the point of prepaying for baggage on line if you still have to stand in line for over half an hour while you watch other passengers drop their jaws when they find out how much checking a bag costs, have the agents explaining the process and the price, fumbling for credit cards, processing the payments, etc, then, when you finally get to your turn, you are out of there in 30 seconds. There should be at lease one agent at all times who is dedicated to serving the passengers who do not need to pay. They should be in and out, not standing in line, when there is no payment to process. Then there is the total joke of the refreshments sales process on board the flight. It's not even worth going into that since I will never board another Frontier flight."
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "Frontier Airlines Lost My snowboard bag. No electronic system to track bags means you must rely on their human communication, and this is terrible. I can't believe they haven't invested in this type of tracking system....its 2017!!! Very bad customer service. No communication or mis communication on status of lost bag. Really they have no idea where it is. Promises to deliver lost bag at certain times and never do. Took time out of my day to stay home and wait for bag between 12pm - 6pm as they asked. Never showed up. Never called to say they wouldn't be showing up. They did this to me 3 times! It's 1 week later and I still don't have my bag. My ski trip was completely ruined. I've flown domestically, internationally, and I have never felt so uncared for as a customer. Tales of this terrible airline were told to me before I chose it. I can't stress this to any future potential customer. Choose another airline. Not worth it no matter how low the price is. Hidden baggage fees and terrible customer service will get you in the end!"
Pros: "Likely the most uncomfortable plane I've ever been on. Seats feature zero padding, the inability to recline, and a tray table the size of a DVD case. I'm 5' 9" 148 pounds, young and very healthy. I left the plane with a twisted up neck like I've never had before. I landed safely so I MUST be thankful for that, but if I was booking I would want to know this information. Since I'm the wiser now I will not book with Frontier again. Also it was an extra $90 for my CARRY ON round trip. It notified me it would be extra when I booked online but didn't specify how much. What a surprise. I spent more on the fees for the bag than I spent on the bag itself (and most of the contents for that matter)."
Pros: "The pilot performed a really soft landing."
Cons: "Ignoring the fact that I had to pay $45 dollars for my carry on bag even tho it fit in the "tester box", I could barely fit on my seat and I'm not an overweight person. I'm just tall and my knees where touching the seat in front of mine. Without payin attention to that either, I spent my entire flight next to a kid that was constantly making noise, banging the tray, and hitting the sit with his heels for four and a half hours. Besides all that I was not offered water and I had to ask if I could have some."
Pros: "Not much to like other than the cost of the ticket, they kept us unmoving on the runway for almost an hour, before taking off, boarding was at 2:50 pm, flight was supposed to be 3:25 pm, we didn't actually take off till 4:15, scheduled arrival was at 9 pm, and we arrived 9:20, and weren't able to deplane till 9:35, and ended up standing around baggage claim for over thirty mins waiting for our luggage, frontier might have some good ticket prices, but next time I'm willing to pay more, if it means better service"
Cons: "The price was good, before you realized the price was a lie and they scam you by charging $45 to carry on or $40 to check a bag! That meant the overhead space was unused and they were just charging more just to be inconvenient. The plane was stripped barebones. The crew were rude, did not smile, and gave me attitude for hitting my elbow with the drink cart. They charge for even getting a soft drink. Nothing about the experience said "we're serving you." It's worse flying a more expensive airline because the rediculous bag fees make it just as expensive and even things that should be free like pleasant staff were lacking."
Pros: "It was SUPPOSED to be a round trip. I arrived at LAS an hour before departure, and tried a kiosk. It advised me that I needed to see an agent. I get in line. 19 minutes later, I am informed that even though the plane is still at the gate, I missed the 45 minute deadline,and cannot board. The agent will not help me to book another flight, but gives me a paper with an 800 # on it. I am told that all of the next days flights are sold out. I managed to get a $287 flight t 6 am the next day, on a different carrier. When I arrived at Ohare for the return leg, I was charged $40 , for my carryon. When I expressed my displeasure at the charge, I was told that Frontier was a low cost operation and should not be surprised that I would pay more for extras. My response to that is "When did customer service become an extra, for which I should be charged?" I have found your corporation to be an overpriced low service airline, a soulless company intent on squeezing every cent out of each transaction, while providing even less than the bare minimum to the sucker who buys a ticket."
Pros: "I actually like that you cannot lean your seat back. It's too imposing on the passenger behind you."
Cons: "They charge extra for everything. Every seat has an extra charge except for the middle seats in the very back row. Once you've paid for your seat and for your carry-on bag(!), you've paid as much as you would have flying with Alaska, American, United, etc. There was no entertainment whatsoever on a 5 hour flight (not even for purchase) and no snack provide either. I believe there was food for purchase but I didn't even look at it. Also, they do not support TSA pre-check. This would have been something the representative I called should have informed me of but instead she told me she had updated my records. So in addition to the fee gouging, their staff are either uninformed or outright dishonest."
Pros: "The Customer Service telephone agent and the check in/baggage drop agents were all very nice and helpful. The pilots did an excellent job of providing an uneventful, peaceful, safe, and gentle flight. Takeoff and landing were great on both the inbound and outbound flights. I was able to get to my destination and return home safely on both flights which was my major objective."
Cons: "At least 1-2 flight attendants on both flights, in general, were quite rude and seemed uncaring at times to the needs of some of the other passengers. From chewing and smacking gum, using their cellphones while standing in the aisles amongst the passengers during boarding, and appearing quite irritated/short when interacting with passengers, it seems to me customer service was not a big priority in their training course and/or job requirements. I sat in an "upgraded" ($16 extra), economy, aisle seat, not located immediately in front of or in between the window exits on my outbound flight and in a middle, non-upgraded, economy seat near the back of the plane on my inbound flight. Neither seat was able to recline and both were quite rigid and almost painful to sit in during the flight. I have flown many times throughout my 46 year life, but these had to be the most uncomfortable seats I have ever had on a flight. I understand about saving money and using a no-frills airline carrier, but I think some of the issues mentioned could have been improved without adding any increased cost."
Pros: "I like the fact that I was a really really smooth flight. The attendants was pretty cool, very professional. I was able to get a seat in the front row which was super awesome."
Cons: "What was really a bit upsetting for me was, when I went to check in at the front desk, the airline attendant was helpful and very professional. My boarding pass did not have the gate number printed on it, and I didn't even notice it until I got passed TSA. I felt like it was the attendant responsiblity to make sure everything on the boarding pass was correct, and my reason for saying so is I was too busy or focused on getting to security and thinking about the rest of my travel. it was just my luck that I remember to check my online itinerary that was sent to me via email to see the gate number. I know this may not be the airlines fault, but On my flight we left ahead of time and landed super on time, but still spend almost an HOUR!!! due to some maintenance issue at the gate in Atlanta. It was an horrible experience, I had a meeting I was suppose to be at at 8am. Everything was going so right with the flight I felt like I was going to make it. I just felt that the entire situation could have been handle a bit better :("
Pros: "Low fare was nice.. but the subsequent nickel-and-diming business practices left a bad taste in our mouths. No in-flight entertainment or proper meal options either. A gate change was poorly communicated, and passengers from 2-3 flights were congregating in the gate trying to decipher the poorly written message (illogical, broken English) on the display behind the agent's desk. That agent was nice enough, but she seemed very untrained and incapable of handling the situation. The boarding gate agent was even worse (see other review)."
Cons: "When asked, the boarding gate agent told us the boarding door was "closing in 1 minute" so that we would hurry up and board. We did, then while waiting in line on the jet bridge, we noticed on our boarding passes that there was another 18 minutes scheduled for boarding. This was infuriating because we wanted to stop by the grab-and-go cafe next to the gate, to pickup food for the cross-country flight (SFO>ATL), especially since Frontier does not offer proper meals onboard. We turned around and confronted the agent about this, and she admitted that she lied to us so that we would board. Lying to customers for any reason is totally unacceptable, and we won't forget this."
Cons: "We landed in Denver and landed a little behind schedule. The flight was below average as the pilot was navigating in "bad" weather. It was not even raining. Once we landed the pilot continues to get on the radio to tell us we would be sitting for 10 minutes. After over an hour we finally moved to a gate. Now that we are over 1.5 hrs after our schedule time frontier took over another hour to get the bags to baggage claim. This is embarrassing for a company that is inflexible in changing flights, charges you to pick a seat, charges you to check a bag, and charges you to carry a bag on. They should return all their customers money from this flight I will not be flying frontier again."
Cons: "Left the gate on time. Arrived at the gate in Atlanta early."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for nearly 4 hours. This caused considerable annoyance and a significant shuffling of the rest of my travel plans. The flight should have departed at 10:30. It was delayed until 2:18. Lunch vouchers were given to passengers, however these were not distributed until 1:15. By that time many passengers had already eaten lunch (including myself) and with the flight boarding in ~30 there wasn't really enough time to get something to eat anyway. If these had been issued 11:30 -12:00 it would have been much more useful."
Pros: "Boarding was quick."
Cons: "Flight delayed due to "changing of aircraft "- we taxied off the runway over an hour late. Nothing like getting to the airport early and then waiting even longer due to the airlines mistake. The plane was disgusting- food and crumbs all over the floor (not exaggerating). Add to that Frontiers extra charges ($40 for a carry-on and anywhere from $5-25 for choosing your seat) and no drink service (not even a water) offered to us- it was terrible. Thankful it was a short flight and we were safe but for what we paid and the delay factor l wish we would have just drove. While l now know to do my homework ahead of time, Kayak should list airlines that do not include at least a checked bag with the price."
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for over three hours. At destination (Seattle) the Link Rail system was closed and I had to pay $50 for taxi service. This was an unplanned expense. I can forgive issues with planes and reasonable delays but there was little or no concern about leaving passengers stranded at the airport. The $50 discount on a next flight with Frontier (which won't happen) is of little use. I would have appreciated some help with getting to my destination and room accommodations. Do you know how hard it is to make arrangements at 2:30am at the Seattle Airport. No food, no ride, and had to get someone to let me into my room early in the morning."
Pros: "That they held the plane to make my connection"
Cons: "My connection was late, then my ticket was not working and the attendant had to manually check is in. She was EXTREMELY unprofessional even sating tons customer " I can only work as fast as I can DUDE, I'm the only one here" in which I verbally reprimanded her for her unprofessional attitude. Then we sat in the plane for an additionaL HOUR for a "mechanical issue".... which appeared to be them filling up the plane. I am so highly dissatisfied that not only will I never ever book frontier again, but I made sure to review the company in social media and all my friends/family/clients. I don't pretend to understand the airline industry, but I do know BAD BUSINESS when I see it. Absolutely TERRIBLE."
Pros: "The stewards were polite on the plane."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 7 hours for maintenance. The passengers were packed like sardines into seats with so little legroom that even my 5'5 frame had my knees against the seat in front of me, the seats don't lean back and there's not even room to put your head down on the 2×3 tray which is only there for looks because it couldn't possibly be used to actually hold anything. Two screaming toddlers rounded out the worst flight I've ever been on. I would never recommend frontier airlines, you really do get what you pay for."
Pros: "Flight arrived early on first leg and on time second leg."
Cons: "I didn't like that I was charged 40 dollars each way for a CARRY ON! REALLY? 80 additional dollars? I might have considered another airline if I had known you were going to bend me over at the gate.Very misleading on the fares. Should be in big flashing letters. "HEY IF YOU HAVE MORE THAN ONE CARRY ON IT"S $40 BUCKS EACH WAY! The new SLIMLINE PRE-RECLINED SEATS were not comfortable. The fact that even a small snack or drink was charged for was also a disappointment. Why not just be honest about your fares and and raise them a little say maybe 5.00 dollars and allow 1 carry on with an additional laptop bag or purse? Very misleading in that respect. But I give them props (pun intended) for being on time. That was the best part. I'd give them and over all 3.9 just because of the misleading stuff. Otherwise they would have gotten a 5 out of 5."
Pros: "The room between seats in the cabin."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed 2 1/2 hrs. We were told we would be updated every 15 min. Not! Finally a plane was coming from 2 terminals away. It took over 45 min to get to our gate, with no updates every 15 min. Emails updating our flight status reached us as we were on board the airplane. Not helpful. We reached home at midnight when we had planned to be there by 9pm, in order to shop before Sunday. Even though we weren't in a time crunch to arrive, my time is obviously not valued by this airline. I will make every effort to NOT fly this airline in the future."
Pros: "The pricing of the flight was great in comparison to other airlines, the flight was also on time and a bit early arriving to my destination. I did do my research prior to flying with frontier and noticed that many other travelers have complained about the added costs; the airlines website states that you have to pay ahead for baggage and carry-on's prior to arriving at the airport otherwise it'll be a lot more expensive there. I paid for luggage each way, no carry-on during this flight but did choose my seat ahead of time as well as I was traveling with my husband."
Cons: "The bathroom was not clean and smelled terrible - this should definitely be looked into as airplane restrooms are pretty gross already (also being pregnant, the smell was even worse). You don't get a complimentary snack/drink on the plane light other airlines but the ticket was about $100 cheaper than competitors so it wasn't anything to really complain about."
Pros: "Read the fine print. This airline is cheap for a reason. There is a fee for carry on bags, and nothing is complementary. Seating is randomized unless you pay extra for a preferred seat. I opted for the cheapest option, no carry on and a random seat. This placed me at the back next to the rest room, but that's how it goes. Seats were very small, with the least leg room I've ever experienced. Thankfully, my flight was only 2 hrs long, and though we were delayed boarding 30minutes, we still arrived on time. Crew was very friendly and the plane was clean. I would recommend this airline for a short flight in which you have no luggage!"
Cons: "I'm 6'1, and I wish I would have paid extra for a "stretch" seat. No leg room in the regular seats."
Cons: "Baggage drop lines were unbelievable. Foreign travelers were in the same line as domestic. There were only four agents to handle 100s of passengers. When I checked in online, to select a seat I had to pay an additional fee and then was also charged for my carry on bag which increased my fare by $68. In addition they do not participate in TSA precheck which further delayed my security process. Although I had allowed plenty of time (1 1/2 hours) to drop my bag and get through security by the time I got to my gate my flight was already boarding. Additionally you are charged for everything on the flight even water which for a 3 1/2 flight is ridiculous."
Pros: "It was an OK flight. Everything is a la carte. I didn't realize this because I have never flown frontier before. I was traveling light anyways, so it did allow me a cheaper flight. I mainly picked them for the departure time. In the future, I probably would pay the 49 bucks for what they call "the works". It bundles a lot of their a la carte services into a better deal. We did catch a tail wind and turned a 3 hour flight into a 2 hour flight. I guess the upside to the paid carry on rule was that there were a lot less carry on, which made boarding and exiting the plain easier."
Cons: "They want you to pay for everything. It does keep you from paying for stuff you don't want or need, which is good for me, but it would have been very bad if it had been my wife. I guess it is OK if you are aware of this, but I didn't realize until after I bought my ticket. You are allowed one personal item for free, but carry on and checked baggage are extra. Again, I only had a backpack ( personal item) but if my wife had been with me, it would have gotten expensive fast. The crew was kind of snippy. If you want food or drinks you have to pay with your credit card. Entertainment was non existent other than the in-flight credit card sales pitch."
Pros: "On time on the way out."
Cons: "Bought the ticket in Chicago because it was cheaper than flying out of Madison or Milwaukee. Even if I paid for a bus ticket from Madison to Chicago. When I went to check in it took 5 phone calls and 1 1/2 hours later. The reason for the call was the carry-on baggage charge which was astronomical and my question was is the $40 for round trip. Which it wasn't. Also, I was unaware of all the additional charges, seat, bottle water, soda etc. The biggest problem was no WI FI on board. I need to work while I was in the air for 4 hours. It took 5 phone calls because I couldn't understand the person trying to answrer my questions. I also couldn't check in because Frontier was not compatible with my IPad. Talk about getting frustrated. I had enough stress traveling for business. On the way back we were backing out to the runway heading to take off and the captain announced that he was turning around because a passage was vomiting due to overindulgence of alcohol. 45 minutes later finally backed out to take off. I barely made it to my bus. Thank god I can run fast. What a nightmare that didn't need to happen. It would have been way cheaper to fly out of Madison or Milwaukee. What really PMO was socking us traveler additional charge for so called peak time. WHO DO YOU THINK BAILED YOU OUT IN 2001? Your should be ashamed of yourselves."
Pros: "I checked in at the ticket counter paid for my bag and then went to the gate. I waited two hours and then started to board the plane they scanned my ticket and I began to walk down the aisle. I was then stopped and told I could not fly in less I paid $60 for my carry-on !!!! I have flown with the exact same carry-on multiple times and never paid for it this is absurd and I want my refund ! Frontier airlines is a horrible company with terrible customer service I will never fly with them again and I want my refund for my bag. I was a long-term customer however I am disgusted with my recent flight !"
Cons: "I checked in at the ticket counter paid for my bag and then went to the gate. I waited two hours and then started to board the plane they scanned my ticket and I began to walk down the aisle.

Frontier airlines is a horrible company with terrible customer service I will never fly with them again and I want my refund for my bag. I was a long-term customer however I am disgusted with my recent flight !"
Pros: "The crew was courteous and professional."
Cons: "After adding up all of the hidden fees with the "low cost" of the flight, it all came out to MORE than I would have paid if I had booked a flight with another carrier!. As ad DEPENDENT of an active duty military member, I NEVER have to pay for checked luggage, much less a carry on! Once I got over having to pay and additional $150 for luggage, I board the plane to find extremely uncomfortable seats with half of a tray table, all I could do was laugh. The joke was totally on me!!!! For a flight that was over 3 hours long, it was NOT WORTH ANY OF IT!!! I didn't do the research that I should have, and that is totally on me. Fool me once, but NEVER AGAIN."
Pros: "The crew."
Cons: "The crew was fine. At no time was I made aware during my booking that I would be charged for a carry on and or checked bag. The total cost added $205 each way for 4 passengers to my flight. I feel completely mislead. Customers also had to pay for water on the flight which was ludicrous. The cost of baggage went up ten dollars from what I was quoted when called customer service to inquire about the prices on preselected seat assignments the day before departure. The seats do not recline and are very uncomfortable. The flight was delayed by five hours and no food vouchers offered. I would not fly frontier again nor recommend to anyone."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for nearly 4 hours, without notice or explanation for most of that time - even though it was a foregone conclusion, because a replacement aircraft had to be flown from CA to FL for maintenance reasons. Then, the counter personnel were arrogant and offensive in dealing with disappointed passengers (who would not be arriving at their destination until 2 am). Frontier is absolutely the worst airline I have dealt with in the past several years, and I am not likely to ever book a flight on Frontier again - especially since the hidden fees tend to make the ultimate price nearly the same as other airlines."
Pros: "I WAS NO TOLD ABOUT YOUR BAGGAGE FEE AND WAS VERY UPSET THAT I CHOSE TO BRING TWO BAGS WHEN I COULD HAVE JUST BROUGHT ONE BIG SUITCASE AND PAID HALF AS MUCH. IT IS OUTRAGEOUS THAT YOU MAKE PEOPLE PAY FOR THEIR CARRY ON BAGS WHEN NO OTHER DECENT AIRLINE DOES THAT. I WILL NEVER EVER EVER EVER EVER FLY FRONTIER AGAIN. AND THE COST IS RIDICULOUS. I CHOSE FRONTIER BECAUSE OF THE PRICE OF THE FLIGHT. BUT I LOST ALL THAT MONEY I SAVED BY PAYING FOR BAGS. AWFUL. THE STAFF I SPOKE TO WAS RUDE. EVERYONE THAT WORKS FOR FRONTIER HAS AN ATTITUDE. FLYING TO ATLANTA (BACK HOME) WAS EVEN WORSE. WE WERE ONE MINUTE FROM BOARDING THE PLANE WHEN WE WERE TOLD WE WOULD BE DELAYED FOR THREE HOURS. THREE HOURS BECAUSE THE PLANE WAS DELAYED DUE TO WEATHER IN COLORADO THAT MADE IT LATE TO HOUSTON AND THUS LATE TO CHICAGO. IT IS RIDICULOUS TO THINK THAT WE COULD NOT HAVE BEEN TOLD BEFORE HAND. I WAS STUCK AT THE CHICAGO AIRPORT WITHOUT A PHONE OR ANYWAY OF TELLING MY FAMILY WHAT WAS HAPPENING. THE PERSON PICKING ME UP FROM THE ATLANTA AIRPORT ARRIVED AT THE AIRPORT AT 10:30PM WHEN I SHOULD HAVE ARRIVED HOWEVER WE HAD NOT DUE TO THE THREE HOUR DELAY. BUT THE SCREENS AT THE ATLANTA AIRPORT SAID ARRIVED. MY FRIEND THOUGHT SOMETHING TERRIBLE HAPPENED TO ME. FRONTIER LACKS COMMUNICATION WITH OTHER AIRLINES OBVIOUSLY AND THEIR PASSENGERS SUFFER. THIS IS THE WORST SERVICE I HAVE EVER HAD. I WILL FLY DELTA OR ANY OTHER AIRLINE FROM NOW ON. I HAD TO PAY TWENTY DOLLARS TO USE A PAY PHONE THAT DID NOT GO THROUGH FROM THE CHICAGO AIRPORT. HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE. ALL OF THIS IS AT THE FAULT OF FRONTIER. THEN FRONTIER HAD THE NERVE TO OFFER PASSENGERS A TWENTY FIVE DOLLAR TRAVEL COUPON DUE TO THE INCONVENIENCE. THAT DOES NOT EVEN COVER THE COST OF ONE CHECKED BAG. ARE YOU KIDDING ME?! FRONTIER IS A JOKE. I WILL TELL EVERYONE TO STAY AWAY FROM THEM. IT IS NOT WORTH IT."
Cons: "I WAS NO TOLD ABOUT YOUR BAGGAGE FEE AND WAS VERY UPSET THAT I CHOSE TO BRING TWO BAGS WHEN I COULD HAVE JUST BROUGHT ONE BIG SUITCASE AND PAID HALF AS MUCH. IT IS OUTRAGEOUS THAT YOU MAKE PEOPLE PAY FOR THEIR CARRY ON BAGS WHEN NO OTHER DECENT AIRLINE DOES THAT. I WILL NEVER EVER EVER EVER EVER FLY FRONTIER AGAIN. AND THE COST IS RIDICULOUS.

I WAS STUCK AT THE CHICAGO AIRPORT WITHOUT A PHONE OR ANYWAY OF TELLING MY FAMILY WHAT WAS HAPPENING. THE PERSON PICKING ME UP FROM THE ATLANTA AIRPORT ARRIVED AT THE AIRPORT AT 10:30PM WHEN I SHOULD HAVE ARRIVED HOWEVER WE HAD NOT DUE TO THE THREE HOUR DELAY. BUT THE SCREENS AT THE ATLANTA AIRPORT SAID ARRIVED. MY FRIEND THOUGHT SOMETHING TERRIBLE HAPPENED TO ME. FRONTIER LACKS COMMUNICATION WITH OTHER AIRLINES OBVIOUSLY AND THEIR PASSENGERS SUFFER. THIS IS THE WORST SERVICE I HAVE EVER HAD. I WILL FLY DELTA OR ANY OTHER AIRLINE FROM NOW ON. I HAD TO PAY TWENTY DOLLARS TO USE A PAY PHONE THAT DID NOT GO THROUGH FROM THE CHICAGO AIRPORT. HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE. ALL OF THIS IS AT THE FAULT OF FRONTIER. THEN FRONTIER HAD THE NERVE TO OFFER PASSENGERS A TWENTY FIVE DOLLAR TRAVEL COUPON DUE TO THE INCONVENIENCE. THAT DOES NOT EVEN COVER THE COST OF ONE CHECKED BAG. ARE YOU KIDDING ME?! FRONTIER IS A JOKE. I WILL TELL EVERYONE TO STAY AWAY FROM THEM. IT IS NOT WORTH IT."
Pros: "The price of e ticket was great. We saw family we had not seen in awhile due to the low price. The plane was very clean and comfortable. The crew on the plane was polite and efficient. Except for the one person at check in our experience was great and we would fly again."
Cons: "When we arrived at the check in desk there were no lines. but we were told we would have to wait 30 minutes to check in. By that time the lines were very,very long! If we would have been allowed to check in when we got there a lot of time would not have been wasted standing at check in then the baggage x-ray and security check.!! The extra fee for bags is also not appreciated."
Pros: "This is in no way a bad relection on Frontier. Kayak sold me the tickets for a certain price and when I started to check in for my flight I had to pay additional for seats and carry on luggage. I ended up paying $102 more for two people on my one way reservation the night before the flight. Kayak should at least make their customers aware that this will happen as it is a lot of money!!!! The flight itself was on time, with a curteous and funny crew. No complains there."
Pros: "One of the crew members was extremely friendly and helpful."
Cons: "I was not made aware at any point in my booking process that I would be charged for a carry-on, a carry-on?!?! And that the carry-on would cost more than a checked bag. They also charge for water, I mean seriously a cup of water, not a bottled water, just a cup of regular ole' water. You also have to pay additionally for an actual seat assignment on the plane. I will be sure to never book them again! I could have flown with a better carrier for the same price after the nickel-and-dime routine i had to go through with Frontier. On top of everything else, the flight was delayed!"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"
Cons: "1) Although flights are fairly low fare, they get you with baggage. Had to pay to check OR to carry-on. 2) Flew out of Chicago O'Hare - a major hub - and Frontier, Spirit, Virgin America, & Alaskan all shared a SINGLE security check. Yes ladies and gentleman, one security scanner. I have never in my life (usually fly American, United, or Southwest) waited more than 30 minutes to get through security. This time was well over an hour, I almost missed my flight. 3) On-board staff was friendly (all but one woman), but there were no complimentary beverages or snacks. I did pay for some & they were not too pricey, but having to whip out my credit card yet again made my whole travel experience feel far from effortless."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Cheap tickets but then you have to pay for your seat after you already bought the ticket plus another $35 to check your bag. Paid $250 for the flight then had to pay another $70 just to get on with my bag and sit. Didn't get any good customer service from anyone who works on this airline. Didn't offer any free beverages on the flight. You had to pay $2 for a soda. Plane was old and beat up. None of the machines worked to print up my boarding pass which left me on a long line where me and a couple other people missed their flight due to lack of staff behind the counter. They tried to charge me another $100 for another flight and still charged me the $70 for the flight I missed. So I went to American and got first class for A LOT cheaper than what I paid all together for this flight. Waste of time, money and just a big disappointment all around. Will NEVER fly frontier again!"
Pros: "Crew and other employees we're curteous. Plane was clean. We trav llhave d before with Frotier and had no problems, until now."
Cons: "It was not pleasing to be delayed 3 times and spend time in the airport instead of being with family and friends. I am thankful that the flight was not cancelled."
Pros: "all was good - loved the affordable prices."
Pros: "Our Stewardess was fantastic! She is the only reason i was able to endure this fiasco....even though she had a sprained ankle she was wonderful....Jessica was The supervisor ispoke with her briefly and she gave a fair explanation...but kudos to the stewardess that evening they pulled us through. .."
Cons: "My flight was delayed by 2hrs with a notification that we would be 16 minutes behind our regularly scheduled flight. ..this was such a inconvenience to me others.."
Cons: "On time fight"
Cons: "The reason why people fly is because time is limited. If I wanted to take 2 days to go home from visiting family, I would have driven. I would have saved money too."
Pros: "The Airbus 320 was very new and seating was generous on leg room. Many of the other airlines fly planes that feel old and have cramped seating. This was different and a definite plus. Not having food and beverage service on a short 90 min flight is a big plus! Not at all a negative. You did not have the flight crew hustling down the aisle creating a general sense of congestion. They were very quick up and down the aisle to serve those who wanted to buy something. Thinking about the comparison the thing I hate the most about flying is cramped seating. The second thing I hate is having the darn service carts parked next to me. Spirit solved both of these bits. I just brought my own drink and all was good. I think I get nervous with that tiny plastic glass of ice and some liquid always worried it will spill. Having a bottle with a cap was actually relaxing. I usually ignore the in flight magazine. And many airlines are switching to personal device entertainment so why do I need them to provide it? All in all I ended up being impressed with Spirit even though after the baggage and seating charges I might have spent more than economy on another airline."
Cons: "Unfortunately the gate area is small and two flights were delayed so the off loading and boarding involved 600 people crammed into an already small space. But it is clear that they are good with their boarding process and the gate staff were friendly and tried to keep people informed. The small space is clearly part of the cost saving strategies and under normal circumstances should work fine."
Cons: "Paid a little extra for big front seat person behind me played down jamming knees in my back I called attendant who talked to guy and asked him to return to his ticketed seat he accused her of racism and assured her he would no longer lay there ruining my flight as soon as she left he played back I turned to him and told him to move he said there wasn't room for him he couldn't help it I told him to keep knee out of my back again he refused again I rang attendant she said it wasn't first class it was spirit I will pay more never use airline again"
Pros: "Damn cheap. Like 30$ for a flight to Atlanta from Chicago. I mean seriously! But of course pay for everything on the plane. To be expected and also can’t complain. Only reason for 4 stars is because I didn’t want to go to Atlanta. Had to because Of business. So, not a good representation really. Plane looked new. All guys as attendants which was a first. They were cool. And the baby next to me didn’t cry the entire trip which was a complete surprise. Just wish I didn’t get motion sicknesss so easily. Good flight though."
Cons: "I didn’t want to go home."
Pros: "The flight did get me from Chicago to Atlanta successfully, which was essentially the goal. The flight was not at all delayed, which was very appreciated. The staff was wonderfully nice, no complaints."
Cons: "The flight was very simple, I was unaware of their baggage policy before arriving to the airport. Other airlines make it clear how much a carry-on will be, I was unaware, and I felt a little tricked when I got to the airport and paid $55 for my bag. I don’t recall it being clear when I purchased my ticket either. I would have likely gone with another airlines if I knew it would be that expensive for a carry-on. No complimentary beverage service on the flight, which would have been nice. Keep expectations low, I don’t really need entertainment or a complimentary beverage service on the flight, is it nice and very appreciated, yes."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "My first time flying with Spirit and it started off bad to begin with. First learned that you can't carry on a bag without a $55 per leg fee adding 50% more to the trip. We decided to check one bag instead at a cost of $40 per leg but then Spirit considers over 40 Lbs overweight instead of 50 like other airlines so another $30 for overweight per leg for an extra $140 for the trip. Then soft drinks are $3 everything costs more. I will say the flight crew did a great job when there was a heart attack on our flight and they attended to him with great care. Then our flight back was cancelled due to the Hurricane but no other airline had to cancel that far out from the hurricane actually hitting. It seems Spirit couldn't get flights to Chicago with nothing to do with Atlanta. In fact we ended up driving all the way back to Atlanta only to see Delta and other airlines landing at the airport 11 hours later. Only Spirit wouldn't fly in more than a day before it effected the area. They did at least refund most of my money. I'll just never fly them again."
Pros: "Seats were spartan and minimalist but good for a 2 hour flight. Cabin walkways seemed wider than many other carriers."
Cons: "Flight crews personalities very poor. Completely checked out. long delays getting pulled into the gate and getting a jet bridge connected - almost 1 hour after landing before leaving the aircraft.. First time to be bounced on landing in an Airbus. Atlanta is not a hard runway to land on. They are not a contender for my business unless my only other option is being strapped to the hood of a truck."
Pros: "I liked the price. The crew on the flight back to Atlanta was great, very professional. They made sure everyone was buckled in, and was very welcoming."
Cons: "The area in the airport where we waited on the plane wasn't comfortable. It was also dirty. This survey needs a N/A choice. There was no entertainment to rank, and I didn't eat the airplane food. So, I have no idea how the food tasted."
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "The experience felt a bit chaotic and impersonal. It's a bit stressful to manage all the extra costs as well. I tend to enjoy flying but I mostly just wanted to get this experience over with. Spirit gets you from point A to point B, safely but there's nothing enjoyable about it. Also, on the flight back we waited on the runway almost 45 minutes for an open terminal. We were about 30 minutes early but that wouldn't explain the terminal opening up 15 mins after our expected arrival time. However, I don't know if this was Spirit's fault or the airport's."
Cons: "Their gate employees. Rude and full of attitude."
Cons: "The flight was delayed."
Pros: "Flight delayed 3 hours due to mechanical issues"
Cons: "Every time I fly with Spirit, there are several delays and every once in a while I have a cancelled flight. It's an unreliable airline."
Pros: "The aire plane is really confort !!!!"
Cons: "They sell everything, even the water"
Pros: "The seat upgrade"
Pros: "I was given this flight by a niece. It got me to my city and back."
Cons: "The cost is good but the add ons are not worth the flight savings to me. I would have never flown Spirit if I had booked the flight. The space between the seats are too narrow to even get to the window seat so say nothing of the space to seat for any length of tie. I am long legged and average size and still felt I was invading the seat next to mine with my arms and shoulders. All drinks are paid for and no cash is accepted. I just find it a very unfriendly airline that is out to save you money in the flight but later rip you off. Not a fan of Spirit Airlines at all."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Nothing"
Pros: "Flight was on time and we had a good crew. Pilot was very informative."
Cons: "Did not likt the fact that I had to pay $55 each way for a carry-on bag."
Pros: "Fine & good every thing was good Good care and timings also good"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The wait time, no air conditioning, the staff"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The multiple lies about why my flight was delayed for 4 hours, every single spirit employees I spoke to was rude even though I was not, the plane had no air conditioning, not one effort to rectify the situation was made when I called customer service........ I could go on."
Pros: "Flight attendants were nice enough."
Cons: "The flight was delayed over three hours with multiple excuses. Towards the end, very little updates were given. When we finally got on the plane, the air conditioning did not work."
Pros: "They refund the money"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled and I needed to buy another ticket with a different airline."
Cons: "Consistently unreliable with no explanation."
Pros: "Crew on the plane were very nice but the front desk were not very friendly nor explain things well."
Cons: "Unfortunately- I have a horrible time with your website, was never able to access. (Spirit) Your customer service is horrible, the young lady even hung up on me went I ask to speak to a supervisors! I was nice went expressing my concern, and trying to understand what was happening. The 2nd time I called the young lady was very friendly and helpful but I never got my email and she verified the email address I believe it was a system error. I was so surprise with the cost of baggage has to high. This was my 1st experience with this airline and probably my last. I travel often and I have never had such a horrible experience! I never compliant but this time I must express my concerns."
Pros: "I got to my destination safely"
Cons: "The fees that they charge on spirit are ridiculous and I will never fly spirit again. Once you add up all of the fees you could afford a more expensive flight. What a scam, also there was a delay."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "I liked that spirit took me from point A-B. That's about it."
Cons: "I did not like that they tried charging me twice for a checked bag for having a connecting flight! The only reason that they got a two star was because they included a checked and carry on once I called and complained for over an hour."
Pros: "I didn't like anything"
Cons: "We had got stuck in traffic on the way to O'hare yet still arrived MORE than 45 minutes before our flight, but the Spirit airlines crew did not even give us the opportunity to ATTEMPT to check in to get our boarding passes. We missed our flight and are now out all of the money we had spent to go enjoy our first wedding anniversary together. This is unacceptable... While I understand that traffic issues fall outside of the airline's responsibility - SHOWING EMPATHY toward our situation could have made things easier, but they didn't - just very cold, non-customer service friendly, garbage. Perhaps if the Spirit airlines team was better at checking people in at the terminal, instead of having a 'who cares' mentality and allowing a 35 person line to be AT A STAND STILL, perhaps we could have made the plane, and I currently could have been writing an amazing review in Florida right now, but I'm not. I am in Indiana, trying to fight with the airline, the travel insurance agency, and others trying to re-coop my losses. this was an overall terrible experience, and I feel like a fool even attempting to try doing this. By all means feel free to contact me to discuss my frustration in person Sean Warren"
Cons: "Missed the flight which could have been avoided but airport staff were extremely unhelpful. Spirit employees mislabeled our luggage under other people's names and sent one suitcase to Portland! Very disappointing experience."
Pros: "The main thing anymore is that it was a safe trip. I thank God for that."
Cons: "Aftet landing we had to set 30 minutes and wait to leave the plane. We were told that an employee went home with the key"
Cons: "Seats were not padded well, & very tight, feel sorry for anyone tall or heavier in weight. Seats also did not recline Low prices offset by hidden charges everywhere"
Pros: "Good crew."
Cons: "Crammed into small seats with no leg room to allow for more seats. Trouble with only one carry on. Have to lay extra for baggage and food and drinks."
Cons: "Very unsophisticated passengers"
Pros: "We made it in 1hr and 15minuted"
Cons: "No room to stretch. Very close to others which is very uncomfortable."
Pros: "The best part of my flight to Atlanta was the price. The service for this leg from checking in through landing was excellent. The seats were pretty comfortable (although I'm not sure they reclined - couldn't see how they would), flight attendants friendly and capable, and I appreciated the announcement re where to find our checked bags."
Cons: "I didn't order coffee during this leg, having ordered it on my trip out and finding that it tasted like instant machine coffee.... I had an aisle seat, and the mother and young son next to me talked loudly during the entire flight, making it hard to concentrate in my reading in spite of wearing earplugs. But this has nothing to do with Spirit - simply their ignorance and lack of consideration and my being unwilling to speak with them about it."
Pros: "The plane was clean and the crew was friendly."
Cons: "The airline charges you for everything, including getting a seat. Isn't that the whole point of buying a ticket in the first place? If not, did I buy a ticket just to stand on the plane, but the FAA does not allow me to stand the whole time, so I thought I was buying a seat! No. When you check in for the flight, you have to pick a seat which is an additional charge. Then, do you want to actually take clothes on your trip that don't fit in your pocket? That's an additional charge, even for a carry on. And, the size and weight limits of your luggage are less than almost all other Airlines. Example, Spirit only allows your checked luggage to be a maximum of 40lbs. Most other airlines allow up to 50lbs. If over 40 lbs, there is an additional $25 on top of the excessive checked luggage fee of $31 (carry-ons are even more. So you get penalized for doing the work yourself!) There is a nice onboard Menu card, but everything is for sale. Don't expect to get even a free cup of water. I can see why Spirit advertises much lower fares than other Airlines, but when all said and done, your total fare with cost of a seat, luggage, drink on your 3 hour flight, may be more than a premium carrier. We paid an additional $280 after our ticket price for these "extras". A seat is an extra? Just be aware. Cheaper is not always cheaper!"
Pros: "The crew was friendly."
Cons: "The passengers as well as the flight crew sat in the airport for 4 hours without a reason, apology or restitution. We would get updates about departure only after I got an email update from spirit.com. This NEVER happens on Southwest Airlines."
Pros: "The cheap cost of the flight"
Cons: "I think Kayak should do a better job of providing information about the airlines they represent. While my flight was only 80 dollars, I ended up spending 100+ dollars extra to carry on my suit. This was my first time flying with Spirit, and if I knew that these extra charges would apply, I would have packed differently. As a student, I do not have any disposable income; I found it very misleading that the price to "fly" and the price to buy a ticket were very different. 80 dollar flight vs. additional 110 dollars to get from point A to point B."
Pros: "NOTHING!"
Cons: "They charged me for my seat, to have a carry-on, to check-in a bag, none of this was disclosed when I was purchasing thru Kayak. What food? There is none, unless you pay for it! Not even water or soda. What entertainment? That they pitch their credit card to you for 15 minutes? Terrible! Will NEVER fly Spirit again. I'm embarrassed that I got suckered by them and Kayak. I've always thought Kayak was trusted source for travel bookings, won't trust them as easily now that they have Spirit as one of their flight options."
Pros: "Cost, efficient and courteous staff. We did not use any food and there was no inflight entertainment"
Cons: "Confusing system of up charges. Boarding on the plane was slow because of all the overhead storage. Possibly more time between loading zones would lessen all the cramped waiting on the plane. Would liked to have had temperature at destination announced. Thank you."
Pros: "The Chicago Spirit team was far and away BETTER than the Atlanta crew. They were positive, efficient, and understanding. Very much unlike the Atlanta team."
Pros: "I never flew with Spirit this trip, flightw cancelled"
Cons: "Spirit cancelled the first leg of my trip so I had to rebook with a different airline to try and make the connection. Spirit would not even try to get me back out to my final destination until 3 days later. No compensation offered."
Cons: "Your employees are RUDE. Your policies are the worst in airline industry. I will NEVER fly on your airline again. You deserve your reputation and rank as worst in Customer Satisfaction"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "No dislike"
Pros: "Great experience overall!!!"
Cons: "Slight delay, but over Holiday, so expected"
Cons: "Less seat comfort. Lot of extra costs for baggage etc,"
