Cons: "Nothing. SW was reliably fun!"
Cons: "No WiFi and no one notified us we were delayed."

Pros: "I was really comfortable and pleased with the amenities. Free WiFi chat and movies."
Cons: "Nothing! I’ll be choosing Southwest as my primary airline now."
Cons: "Flightwas 2 hours late"
Cons: "Had a 1.5 hour delay due to a mechanical issue."
Cons: "Even with the air vent open, it was a bit warm. Traveling with my dog, had to pick the case up so she could get some fresh air."
Pros: "A safe flight...and the cheap ticket."
Cons: "The way you check in and board the flight."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "If there’s a “medical emergency” at the gate, 20 minutes BEFORE we board, maybe don’t let the person board before everyone else, then proceed with the medical evaluation and subsequent escorting the person back off the flight. Someone should’ve known that that person wasn’t fit for a cross country"
Pros: "Ample seat room. Not full flight. Attentive flight attendants."
Cons: "Cup of hot tea was very small."
Pros: "Flight was amazing!"
Pros: "From car rental to the gate in 20 minutes Every detail went well"
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Pros: "Once again, a Southwest flight crew made the discomfort of flying a little less onerous by being friendly and funny. People were actually laughing out loud. The seats are so small you’re packed in like sardines, the food offering is a lousy bag of pretzels. But the flight crew? They were truly pros."
Cons: "See above — it’s just misery to fly in tiny seats."
Pros: "Fast travel"
Cons: "Obnoxious steward trying to entertain with lame jokes."
Pros: "Had an early morning flight, boarding started on time and was very quick and easy. I was able to get a good seat on the plane pretty easily. Also, deboarding was easy and efficient."
Cons: "The planes are always too cold."
Cons: "Very cold!"
Cons: "45 min delay sitting on plane. Plane was hot."
Pros: "The wifi"
Cons: "There was no food service due to turbulence so that wasn’t good besides that everything else was good!"
Pros: "Didn't crash."
Cons: "In wheelchair and needed assistance boarding. In fact there were 3 of us and no assistance. They started boarding others and then that made it difficult to board. I felt neglected and in everyone's way. No food available on flight to purchase. Because of time difference, after landing and customs check, I was hungry but didn't think I had enough time to get anything. If I had known the plane was delayed, I would have gotten something to take on board. I arrived at Ontario Airport at 10 45pm which was 12:45pm by my stomachs time and I hadn't eaten anything since lunch."
Pros: "I like the boarding method a lot, everyone should do it that way. The staff is kind and polite overall. Their baggage policy is what brings me back every time."
Cons: "I wish they weren't so stingy with the soda drinks. I was feeling very thirsty and they give you a tiny cup. I tried to get up to get another drink only to get chastised back into my seat to anxiously wait for them to come around again."
Cons: "Almost never used to have a delayed SWA flight. Now it is commonplace. Gate attendants rarely say anything of explanation or apology, as if you will always just be there. Not necessarily so."
Pros: "I love flying Southwest! It is always a quick and easy boarding process. The flight attendants are always nice and attentive. Overall, my favorite airline!"
Cons: "This has nothing to do with the airline itself, the flight was just a bit bumpy due to turbulence."
Cons: "This flight was missed due to the delay, not leaving until 8:35."
Pros: "Everything!"
Cons: "There was nothing to dislike!"
Pros: "the boarding agent was hilarious"
Pros: "Good customer service"
Cons: "Loud children"
Pros: "Good food/beverage service. Quick flight, smooth ride"
Pros: "Boarding and exiting went fine. Other than a rude passenger, the flight attendants were very courteous, even to her."
Pros: "As usual Southwest was great but boarding in Cancun was not so great."
Cons: "The boarding in Cancun was terrible. They don't have the numbered section posts like in the states and so boarding was like a herd of animals all trying to get in at once. I assume this is due to the lack of dedicated gates for SW. Maybe having portable signs for lineup order would help."
Cons: "Cramped seating flight was just about sold out"
Pros: "Speed as to getting everyone on board and in the air. The attendants were all fantastic as well, almost made me feel at home. Despite my initial flight being delayed we made up the time in the air and I was still able to make my connection both because of making up time but also SW held the connection in ATL."
Cons: "The incoming flight was late by about a half hour. My connection was only a 45 minute layover so I was worried since I was on a later flight. SW did however hold the plane in ATL so that I did not miss my connection."
Pros: "The staff is always fun and super friendly!"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "hate queing up and the feeling that you need to push to the front to get a good seat."
Pros: "About 50 customers on a 147-seat plane, so plenty of room for all to spread out. Arrived 10 minutes early."
Cons: "No baggage within 30 minutes of arrival."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Southwest computer system lost my TSA Precheck and A List status AND their checkin kiosks wouldn't issue my boarding pass. We nearly missed our flight because of the compounding effect of these problems. Then, on the flight my four year old was complaining of being thirsty from all the running we had to do. After asking the flight attendant for an extra apple juice, the flight attendant went back to his station to get it but never returned with the juice. When asked about it later, the flight attendant shrugged and said everything was "locked up.""
Pros: "It was a newer plane, clean, staff was very courteous. There was not any entertainment and I did not purchase any food items. Over all it was my first flight on Frontier and it was fantastic."
Pros: "The crew knows their job."
Cons: "No food, they only have snaks"
Pros: "Everything was fine for a no frills airline. Just be sure to bring your own water. You only get one cup, and if you sleep through water service you are out of luck."
Pros: "The crew personnel aboard the plane was friendly and the seats confortable."
Cons: "They made me pay $45 for a 16 inches carry on back that I have as my only luggage , because according to the counter employee, my handbag (purse) was too big so it was considered as a second carry on. I requested a waiver, because I’m an Army Veteran, a senior citizen, but it was denied by the counter employee."
Pros: "crew was good."
Cons: "Late boarding, slow boarding, line for take off, line for gate at arrival. Very unimpressed. No tv. No complimentary snacks or food. Seats have the smallest possible food tray. Seats uncomfortable."
Pros: "Flight landed 1 hr early. We were out of plane in 20 minutes"
Cons: "Check-in luggage is expensive"
Pros: "fast boarding for my zone"
Cons: "the flight attendants on this flight had a lot of attitude straight away, one in particular. was rude to several passengers at boarding and deplaning. it was a redeye, but they kept the overhead light on the entire flight and talked at top volume for the entire time. no one in the rows around me slept because of this."
Pros: "Easy ticket booking"
Cons: "Price can be still reduced"
Pros: "It was cheap and the pilot very skillfully navigated us around any turbulence"
Cons: "It's cramped and there isn't even water. When you add the expense of a bag and a drink, it usually is more expensive than other carriers that don't charge for these things."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Waiting on the tarmac for nearly an hour with no explanation. Flight crew was rude. Wouldn't serve water."
Cons: "They held us for two hours on the plane because their paper work was wrong, the flight attendants were rude and made everyone uncomfortable"
Pros: "The price. Nothing super bad."
Cons: "Delay leaving due to a door sensor. Got in an hour late, which was annoying. Limited, expensive menu anyway, but was out of what I wanted (jerky). Biggest complaint is the seats not reclining-that's really uncomfortable for a 3 hour flight.2nd biggest complaint is that having to pay for my seat and 1 carry on feels like a bait and switch over the ticket price."
Pros: "New plane, clean. Friendly crew"
Cons: "No frills, minimal comfort, a cup of water is free. Why do they still tell you to bring your seat back up when they don't even redline anymore?"
Cons: "It was wasteful and greedy. They just wanted money when the flight wasn't cheap to begin with. I felt like they were taking advantage."
Cons: "Carry on bag cost of $45."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very nice and helpful."
Cons: "Bag check was a nightmare and the line took forever. There should be a line only for dropping bags and not assisting customers. It took a long time to get my bag at baggage claim (almost an hour). They used the same carousel as two other flights leading to frequent baggage jams. Not sure if that's their fault or the Atlanta airports."
Cons: "They would not allow my emotional support animal on the flight even though she weighs four pounds and I had all of her documents. The flight was 10 hours late taking off. Myself, friends and family will never fly Frontier again. Truly disappointed. I had to leave my animal (dog) in Denver with friends."
Pros: "Not a thing"
Cons: "I understand weather delays, but the frontier personnel had absolutely no idea what was going on. The personnel that were aware weren't telling anybody anything. I watched my flight say on time and then our time passed and then was deleted from the que on the board. No one informed us what was going on. We were moved to three different gates. The employees of this airline need to be retrained immediately. If i were the CEO I would close immediately and focus on training, customer service and communication. I will never fly this airline again and I will advise every single person I know to fly a different airline."
Cons: "Every time they delay in flight this is happened 20 days before on same flight"
Cons: "On a holiday arrived early to avoid traffic and the bag counter wants open. Had to stand there and wait for service, just to print out tickets. I have always scanned directly from my phone. Huge incovience. Flight attendants served to much alcohol to parents with a three month old. Allowed to much traffic through the cabin."
Pros: "Nothing good to say. The"
Cons: "The entire process from beginning to end makes never want to consider this airline again. Price is too high. You pay for everything. Customer service is nonexistent. they won't even look at you. Most uncomfortable flight!! Unclean, tight space (I am a small person). Getting off the plane was ridiculous, had to wait 35 minutes. Baggage claim was another hour wait. No one explained delays, no one apologized. Ignorant, unfriendly and overpriced."
Pros: "the jokes from the stewardess"
Cons: "extra charges for carry on, expensive to check bags"
Pros: "Horrible...AGAIN. I even bought a seat in row 2 in hopes of better comfort and a nap. No way. Crew SLAMMED drawers and doors andb turned bright lights off and on the whole way. In addition, the seats are just as uncomfortable up front in rows 1 & 2 as the rest of the plane. I'm short so more leg room wasn't what I was going for. Guess it's too much to expect a more comfortable seat, even when paying for it. Worst of all the flight was grossly delayed AGAIN...1 3/4 HRS. My last return flight from SLC to ATL was over 2 hrs delayed and by the time we arrived, the airport was closed. We had to be hussled out a back door (just tough if anyone had to use the bathroom), down a flight of stairs and across some distance to wait to be loaded ont to busses with wet seats , then driven to baggage claim. This time, the train closed down at T gates and we were detoured down to south terminal baggage claim...but needed to be in north baggage claim. Furthermore, the baggage crew must have taken a break in the middle of unloading bags. I waited nearly ONE HOUR for my bag, and there were still a good 30 or more passengers waiting for theirs when I got mine."
Cons: "See above"
Cons: "Having to pay for everything individually. The cost for our bag it way to much. With other airlines we get free coke products and little bags of pretzel. But with frontier we have to pay. Y'all are my last choice for flying"
Pros: "Crew was great. Price was even better"
Cons: "Tray tables too small."
Cons: "Though they appeared to be the cheapest choice, they charged $40 for a CARRY-ON and $30 to check a bag. More money to select your own seat, more money for anything but water on the flight. The plane was fine, but no frills. The fold down table was the size of an envelope, maybe 8"x4"."
Cons: "I left a bag in the airport, and they did not issue a guest pass to help me retrieve it. While the police and other flight agencies they should issue it. The person at the counter was indifferent, and lazy."
Pros: "Great value! Unbelievable price! Lost oversize luggage going to Denver, but baggage claim folks were very nice and helpful. Piece got to my hotel next morning in plenty of time."
Cons: "The pilots were late so we sat on the plane in Denver 1.5 hours before take off at 1:30 am. Otherwise, it was good, especially considering the price. Thank you!!"
Pros: "I like the convince of the flight."
Cons: "I don't like the fact that we started charging 30 for a carry on. I get it. You get the ticket for cheap and upcharge but charging for the carry on is a way to lose business. I might as well fly spirt at least I know up front that I have to pay for something that's already with me. Very frustrating on a return flight."
Pros: "Cheap last minute flight"
Cons: "They charge you for everything! Carry on bag, checked bag, picking your seat even refreshments costs you money! The seats DO NOT recline at all! It was a very uncomfortable ride. Unless it is a true emergency, I won't fly Frontier again."
Pros: "Not impressed at alll"
Cons: "Flight was delayed twice , seats and leg space very uncomfortable"
Pros: "..."
Cons: "I was really disappointed in the price schemes. Their game is to have very low flight prices, but what they don't tell you is you get additional charges, including for your CARRY-ON and to choose your seat in q cabin. By the time you pay those fees, your paying more than you would for other higher quality airlines."
Cons: "Charged for every additional thing so the cost of the ticket was not true."
Pros: "I got a good chuckle at the all the things Frontier does to cut costs."
Cons: "Seats are hard and don't recline. The tray table was hilariously tiny but I didn't need it anyway. .... I had no intention of swiping my credit card for water."
Cons: "I had very little leg room, I had less than half a can of soda to drink in a cup filled with ice, there were screaming children everywhere and the plane was dirty. The flight attendants looked like they would rather be someplace else then doing their job."
Pros: "The crew was helpful when I didn't feel well. Helped with a plan if I needed one."
Cons: "There was nothing to not like. I think a small beverage should still be free but all in all I would use this group again."
Pros: "Price"
Cons: "Sitting at the gate for 30 minutes waiting for a soccer team that couldn't get to the airport on time! Walking two miles with my handicapped wife because we got to Atlanta much later and the trains were down for maintenance! Getting home at 6am and having to take a quick nap, shower, and be to work at 8:30! All because Frontier cared more about one team than all of its other passengers!! I'll bet they won't hold a flight for me!!!"
Pros: "Getting off the plane was great."
Cons: "Almost missed my flight because there were so few attendents at the baggage drop. I waited 38 minutes just to drop my bag (excluding wait time to lrint my boarding pass). The attendents were rude. I was charged 40 dollars for a carry on bag. The seats were horrifically uncomfortable. I was given half a cup of water only on the flight. The lights were on and bright throughout the entire overnight flight. The seats don't decline, nor do they have much cushioning. Honestly, everything was so disorganized that when it came tome to land, I was scared it might be the last breath of my life because the quality of servuce had been so bad, I wasn't sure if the pilot was even certified to be a pilot. Luckily, I did not die. I will never fly Frontier again and am far less likely to use Kayak because of this horrible flight."
Pros: "Crew was very entertaining and outgoing."
Cons: "Everything was great."
Cons: "The flight was still on the ground at the terminal"
Cons: "Hidden seat and carry on fees. Come on now. What is the likely hood someone doesn't have a bag flying 2500 miles. You're going to charge for that in addition to the ticket? Plus, yes plus another charge to select a seat. Super dumb and honestly a bit childish. Put your entire price online and let people pick. Also note zero wifi. I know you're a lower tear airlines but it's 2016! Give the people the all in price and if you won't give them entertainment or wifi make worth their wild. Also note, the tray table was about the size of a tablet, I couldn't even use my computer to do local work during the flight. I appreciate the safe flight but from a high level: 1: make your online prices more transparent. 2: if you're going to be lower tear, make it clear that wifi and infighting entertainment isn't included. People will still choose to fly cheap, but to burry hidden charges is horrible."
Pros: "The gate attendant and the crew were all very nice and accommodating. Basic flight, no worse or better than any other airline."
Cons: "I did not realize they charged for carryon, so was charged $40 at the gate. So much for an excellent fare. Was not aware Frontier had changed to a "no frills" airline. It was also annoying to have advertising for their credit card, but a lot of airlines do this and it is equally annoying. Everything was a cost, even water. Well, now I know and can make more informed decisions before traveling with them again."
Pros: "I made it to my destination and home"
Cons: "Tight waiting area. People yelling and screaming about paying for luggage. Not a refined experience"
Pros: "Continuous flight update was great"
Cons: "Check in online was confusing me with payment for a small carry on bag. Website indicated payment that is not fair for a traveler. 1 small carry on bag must be free."
Pros: "Baggage handling and Boarding was above par."
Cons: "The seats; they don't recline. WHY did you choose this? It's a deal-breaker on long flights; especially red-eye flights. I walked off the plane with a lingering headache and neck and back pain."
Cons: "There is a $40 charge for carryon baggage. This should be made clear at the time of purchase."
Pros: "This was my first time flying Frontier... my overall experience was good. However, I was unaware that it was an a-la carte airline so minor difficulty maneuvering at first. Seating is a little tight but bearable. Crew was pleasant. Can do without food/beverage but need more comfortability/seating... Overall rating... 3.5"
Pros: "Frontier airlines is horrible. The seats are so uncomfortable and the ladies that work on the plane are so rude. Each time the pilot make a elevation change it was sudden and it felt as if the bottom was dropping out of the plane. I will never fly Frontier Airlines again"
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: "The seats were of newer material."
Cons: "Newer but very hard seats. I'm 6'2" and the seats didn't recline and my knees were hitting the seat in front of me...a lot. On a red eye flight, this was torturous. The seat backs did not go high enough for my head either. The flight was delayed 40 minutes as well."
Cons: "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."
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: "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: "The crew was amazing - very friendly and informative. The flight was quick and arrived early."
Cons: "boarding is always a bit hectic but it was organized."
Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "Seats were extremely uncomfortable. Both me and my partner are 6'0" and we were packed in like sardines. Also the air conditioning went out multiple times on the flight."
Pros: "Nothing worst Airlines ever"
Cons: "The charge for a carrier on and the flight delays. The Worst ever ,"
Pros: "Let the handicap get on first and wheelchair assistance I love sitting on the aisle seat very comfortable for the limp in my left side"
Cons: "The babies crying across the aisle from me just too busy and parents letting them get away with it that's not good for people trying to get a little shut-eye but it's all good"
Cons: "1. Delayed flight 2. Train stopped running when I arrived at the airport in Atlanta. I had to walk an hour in the airport to get to the taxi stand. 3. Non reclining seats 4. No free snacks 5. I paid $57.00 to bring one peice of luggage with me."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Worst airline. Will never fly w"
Pros: "Cancelled flight with no nitification!"
Cons: "Horrible customer service"
Cons: "Their gate employees. Rude and full of attitude."
Pros: "The seats are first class size and comfortable. The employees are friendly."
Cons: "The luggage charges should come up in a pop up window or some other way to make online ticket buyers aware. Luckily I did not buy gifts to bring with me. Flyers can save a lot if they are prepared properly to bring the right carry on."
Pros: "The seat upgrade"
Cons: "Delayed 3x times"
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."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "There was no free water or soda every other airline gives water or soda plus cracker sandwiches or something to accommodate you why you on your flight."
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: "Staff was friendly and professional."
Cons: "The flight was delayed and the baggage fees were too high."
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."
Cons: "I've flown with spirit three times now and every time I do , my flight is delayed 3-8 hours , I won't be flying with spirit again ."
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."
Cons: "Consistently unreliable with no explanation."
Pros: "Flight attendants were hysterical and cool"
Cons: "For a 6 foot 4 man make sure you pay extra for the larger seats I got stuck in between 2 other large people Anda 2 hour flight felt like 10"
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."
Cons: "It looked like the window had dried blood on it."
Pros: "The price was excellent. I enjoyed flying. I have not flown in years."
Cons: "The boarding was unorganized, after a two hour weather related delay. Not enough announcements, about the different flight delays. Customers were extremely worried about the different gates."
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: "There was an hour delay due to maintenance issues so I was unable to get to my rental car or hotel in time."
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: "Ticket price; on-time flight"
Cons: "Seat very uncomfortable. high prices for baggage especially the carry on"
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: "I really liked how short my flight was. Also I got to have a window seat so that was cool."
Cons: "I didn't like that I had to pay for EVERYTHING."
Pros: "The crew were corteous, the flight on time and the leg room was adequate. The price of the ticket is why I selected this flight and why I would go with Spirit airlines/kayak.com again."
Cons: "The width of the seats was too small. There was not enough room for both my shoulders and the stranger's shoulders next to me and so I ended up sitting lopsided the entire flight to accommodate, causing me back pain for the plane ride and my entire weekend getaway."
Cons: "Landing was a little sketchy."
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."
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: "The cheapness of the original ticket."
Cons: "The refund and cancellation policy. I needed to change the times of the flight, but changing the flight was much more expensive than the original ticket. So I decided to not even go and book a different flight with a different airline."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "No dislike"
Pros: "They was taking care of me at all"
Cons: "Nothing at all"
Pros: "Great experience overall!!!"
Cons: "Slight delay, but over Holiday, so expected"
Cons: "The flight was late due to the weather in Chicago but spirits were good"
Pros: "Very nice flight"
Cons: "I'm very upset that I had to pay 50.00 to check in a bag."
Cons: "Less seat comfort. Lot of extra costs for baggage etc,"
