Cons: "Those dry pretzels have to go."
Cons: "The only thing was the long delay but that was not the fault of southwest airlines.

Pros: "Amazing and fun crew"
Cons: "Pilot was late. Poor crew scheduling. Unnecessary delay."

Pros: "Quick boarding Quick flight - got in early. Left on time."
Cons: "Pretzels and crackers for snacks"

Pros: "Free Checked bags, and the rest of their service is great too."
Cons: "I little problem with the entertainment, but might have been our old iPad."
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: "On time And excellent service. Polite crew"

Cons: "N/a"
Pros: "quick flight"

Pros: "Pretty much everything! Pretty quick flight w/ a great crew, decent Wifi, and comfy seats"

Pros: "Although ticket price is still competitive for a handful of locations, it is increasing for many other locations."
Cons: "On-flight wi-fi entertainment is very limited. It used to have a few free popular episodes available; they are no longer available. Real time TV programs are also reduced.

Cons: "wasting my time getting to the airport and then having to do it again tomorrow!"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Delayed for 3 hours and didn't let us switch to an earlier flight while we were standing at the gate before it started boarding."

Despite the terrible weather situation, the crew made sure that all passengers were safe before taking off. We were all thankful that Delta made sure to take all precautions to insure a safe flight. Even though the flight was delayed, we were able to still make our connection in Atlanta We're thankful for the effort that Delta and the crew made to get us in the air, but making sure that everything was safe. Being a GA private pilot myself, I know all of the procedures that must be followed in order to get that flight safely off the ground.

Boarding took a long time. Taking off took a long time. I spent over an hour connecting, disconnecting repeatedly from the Wifi just to watch the last 15 mins of the movie I watched on my first flight. Wasn’t offered ice with my drink. They passed me twice to throw out my garbage. And the guy next to me had his arm in my ribs the whole time.

It was a smooth flight. Nothing untoward happened

Pros: "Flight canceled without notification"
Pros: "Kosher snacks! Thank you. Screens and outlets at every seat. Safe, controlled Covid protocols including de-boarding. Excellent!"

Cons: "Flight was delayed a bit due to a couple passenger booking/misc issues. 1st class didn’t get gate bevfood service. Oven was busted so my meal wasn’t available.

Cons: "Passengers who pay retail for first class on domestic flights should get access to the Delta lounges even without the AE card. Other airlines do this, and we have come to expect it."
Pros: "The boarding was fast and very well handled."
Cons: "My flight from Chicago was two hours late and that's why I missed the flight from Atlanta to Buenos Aires. No one helped and did not know that the flight was delayed and I had to find a place to sleep. I'm not satisfied with the experience and I have not yet arrived in Argentina because of the whole"
Cons: "It was delayed"
Pros: "N/A"

Pros: "It was a smooth boarding, flight and exit out of the plane."

Cons: "Cancelled my flight because I lost one of the arms"
Cons: "Layover"
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Too cold Not friendly boarding agent"
Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "2.5 hour delay for no apparent reason at first (supposed mechanical issues with plane) and then waited on plane at gate for a missing pilot who never got picked up from his airport and got stuck in Chicago traffic trying to get to O'Hare. Eventually had to take pilot from another flight before leaving at 8:45 when flight was scheduled for 6:00am."
Cons: "Had a death in the family and no one would help me get back home"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable. Snacks!!! Nice flight crew."
Cons: "I liked everything."
Pros: "The Gogo Inflight wifi and entertainment did not work for even a minute. I choose flights based on their amenities and this one had offered full WIFI service which swayed me to choose to fly with Delta. I'm not sure who is to blame about this issue but I'm pretty frustrated that it was completely dysfunctional."
Pros: "The movie I watched was pleasant, although I had trouble hearing it because of the situation described below."
Cons: "There was a family seated behind us with several crying, loud children. We were miserable. Even my headphones with a Mozart sonata cranked up to loud did little to mask the noise. Probably not Dela'a fault, but the crew did nothing to mitigate the problem."
Pros: "Seat spacing was good, entertainment was good"
Cons: "Nothing for this flight"
Cons: "Engine was super loud on takeoff - to the point where passengers were looking around worried that something wasn't right. Eventually it seemed to be switched off once we hit the clouds and we seemed to sort of coast quietly for a minute or so - also alarming to everyone judging by the non-verbal behavior that suddenly everyone was exhibiting. Then it came back on again but only at half the volume. Nothing was mentioned about it by the captain or crew so I spent the rest of the flight wondering if the engine was going to give out part way through the flight."
Pros: "Nice crew, quick boarding, good snack options"
Cons: "Easier to use free wifi"
Cons: "An out delayed with one update from the pilot. Sitting on the tarmac with no AC for an hour."
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "Friendly crew, tasty meals. Comfortable seats"
Pros: "The crew was nice and very respectful to all the passengers."
Cons: "Comfier chairs"
Pros: "I was able to sleep for 2 hours of this 3 hour flight. But that was due more to my extreme exhaustion than any comfort the plane provided."
Cons: "The Flight attendant was rude and abrupt."
Pros: "Like being able to watch a film on my own device, two thumbs up!"
Cons: "Seats are small, snacks are tiny for a 2 hour flight. If you are hungry - buy a meal before boarding"
Cons: "Kayak should be ashamed to think that such a short international connection through ord would work. Shame shame shame. Never booking with you again."
Pros: "The price was better than spirit"
Cons: "We sat on the runway for some time but made it to Dallas on time"
Cons: "the flight was late almost 2.5 hours"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and patient"

Cons: "The entertainment system for an international flight was lacking compared to other airlines."
Pros: "Plane did its job - got us from Point A to Point B safely. United Customer service dept in Chicago was helpful and cheerful."
Cons: "Entertainment system was out on the plane. Plane sounded old and rickety - lots of rattles and creaks."
Cons: "You better get rid of basic economy."
Pros: "The people were all very nice. The plane was top-notch. Would definitely fly with them again if I had the opportunity."
Pros: "Crew was good"
Cons: "That United waited 3 hours before they decided to use another plane when they new realistically the one we were suppose to board would never be fixed in time! Total waste of our time!"
Pros: "The flight was very nice the Captain did an awesome job flying and the flight was awesome seeing the fireworks from the sky."
Cons: "I had to run to customs to pass by then I had to run to luggage check in run to the shuttle to catch to terminal hurry through security and then my luggage is still not found or waiting to land in Dallas from Chicago."
Pros: "American Airlines"
Cons: "Dear United Airlines, It is my dearest wish that reading the following inflicts upon you at least a fraction of the stress, frustration, and pain that I have been through traveling with you today- you absolutely abhorrent excuse for a company. Due to your incomparable incompetence my arrival was inexcusably delayed almost 12 hours. An account follows: For a company who's customer service is already hanging by a very thin thread you would think that you would be doing everything to make your flights as smooth and pleasant as possible. Shall I elaborate on the utter frustration and boredom of being trapped in the San Francisco airport facing not one, not two, but what became SEVEN delays? Delays that have been caused by runway maintenance- a condition which someone in your company would have known about well before I got to the airport and that you simply did not plan for. A almost FOUR HOUR delay that could have been easily avoided if you just had things together and scheduled your planes around the affected runways. And let's not forget the additional delay caused when your flight crew simply couldn't be found to come to the gate so we could start getting underway! But no, I think the absolutely outstanding quintessential experience that defines flying with United airlines is this: After the above delays myself and my fellow passengers were finally able to board our flight- only to be told by the captain that there would be another brief delay while we waited for ANOTHER crew member because one of the pilots was near the end of their union hours. We sit on the plane stuck for another 20 minuets or so, only to be told they can't find anyone, and can we please get off the plane because our WHOLE FLIGHT is CANCELED. The kiosk I get to try and fix this is uncrowded but understaffed and run by clearly undertrained employees. The ones I'm dealing with keep having to ask each other for help, and give advice/plans that contradict one another. One of theme even takes what seems to be a personal call while 'assisting' me. When I finally get ahold of a supervisor I have to plead to get the next flight out of this godforsaken place, which I am reluctantly given as its with one of your competitors. Talking with other customer and airport staff is sounds very much like you are delaying/canceling flights for your own personal gain or at least not correcting flights around the situation to squeeze more money from the situation) it becomes quite clear that you are not only still incapable of accepting any real measure of accountability but entirely disgracefully unorganized.  Almost 12 hours later I do finally make it home- thanks to American Airlines.  Only to have the utter displeasure of one last interaction with United wherein when I pick up my bag your employees insist that I was delayed due to the weather and it wasn't your fault. It was entirely absolutely your fault."
Pros: "I traveled for 2 weeks, took 7 planes. This was the single worst flight of the entire trip. The attendants were not very friendly but the plane was disgustingly dirty. Trash was left from previous flight and the restroom was filthy."
Cons: "Cleanliness of plane was not good at all."
Pros: "Wasn't thrown off"
Cons: "Another delayed flight with United"
Cons: "They might as well have thrown us in a car trunk the crew was very unaccommodating they didn't really care about us and the room legroom is ridiculously smal. On the connecting flight, the last flight the plane was two thirds empty and the crew made us sit in our assigned seats, crammed together telling us that if we want to sit in a seat with more legroom we have to pay $180"
Cons: "The seating is cramped but to be expected in coach. No big deal."
Cons: "Food service"
Pros: "overhead space for luggage and TV monitors for entertainment"
Cons: "After boarding, we had to get back off plane number 1 due to mechanical issues and were told that plane #2 was ready for us and that we would be able to board immediately. After all passengers rush through the airport to the new gate, we wait 45 minutes for them to tell us this plane won't work either. Finally, the 3rd plane we attempted actually worked and we ended up being delayed 2 hours."
Cons: "Delay and then having to change gates - at O"Hare that means walking and walking some more !! After being insulted during check in. The RUDE woman (poor English) with assisted boarding then the RUDE man that changed my name and my luggage he chose to send to Dayton OH -never been there in my life and he "dug" thru my luggage - as if he was searching for MONEY or GOLD -he pulled out a protein drink and I asked him to hand that to me so I could drink it as I am a diabetic - he shouted at me "I THROW AWAY'. During the two hour delay I could have used it !! Poor service I will fly American from now on !!!!!!!!!!!"
Pros: "That was okay. Crew was nice. Food bad"
Pros: "We'll coordinated."
Pros: "The flight left on time, was uneventful, and arrived early."
Cons: "There was no USB or in flight entertainment"
Cons: "The trip was fine. No complaints."
Pros: "The promptness on the flight -the friendly crew - arriving on time means the most, also the flight itself was smooth"
Pros: "Less of a delay than I've come to expect with United."
Cons: "I would also like the breakdown of my flight combined. Having to justify paying more for an economy seat (Plus) I can move in is not fun on an expense report. I feel like it's more and more expensive (nickel and diming) and no space and all to frequent delays. I'm considering switching airlines."
Pros: "Everything about the flight process was excellent"
Cons: "Even though I was on business class, I could not use the lounge at United . They said Luftansa do not pay pay for local connections."
Cons: "Paid for first class, didn't get offered dinner"
Pros: "Over all it was a great flight aside from the rain delay but that's Mother Nature for you"
Pros: "Crew and service were great"
Cons: "No wifi or video system on plane"
Pros: "Nice clean planes and seat, on time performance"
Cons: "The flight attendant was hard to understand"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Multiple delays and gate changes; chaotic boarding; shabby plane condition (bathroom looked held together with duct tape)."
Pros: "Flight was on time. The staff was nice. The flight was great no issues."
Pros: "Tons of food and water. Movies good. Staff on plane were excellent. Clean bathrooms and peacful. Nice that headphones were provided."
Cons: "Seats should not be set to go back so far, if a person in front sets back all way, no space passenger behind. The seats should be calibrated to go back less of an angle."
Cons: "Some inspector idiot decided that the exterior cover stickers weren't "up to code" literally half an hour before my flight, delaying us 2 hours. I got onto a different flight at the last second, then the same thing happened to that plane. Brilliant on their parts. I almost lost a job interview thanks to your people."
Pros: "Overall service."
Cons: "Impolite Lady Gate Agent."
Pros: "Nonstop"
Cons: "Middle Seat"
Pros: "Great service"
Pros: "The boarding process was excellent, smooth, orderly and expedient."
Cons: "The stewardess unassuming behavior."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly"
Pros: "United offers so many free movies and shows it makes the flight fly by."

Bad service over charge for everything and always late

Pros: "Fair amount of leg room."
Cons: "Flight delay"
Pros: "Crew was very nice"
Cons: "Never left been waiting since 6 am for an alternate flight with no luck being charged for carry-on n I have no money not even to eat and I gotta be here til 6 pm"
Pros: "That it took me home!"
Cons: "Been on time"
Cons: "Not have a delayed flight."
Cons: "Cabin pressure was terrible."
Pros: "So you got me from point A to point B."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats. Overpriced fees for carry on luggage."
Cons: "Nothing, the whole trip booked through Kayak on Kiwi was a disaster."
Pros: "The crew kept a very positive attitude. I only caught one members name, Maddison, and she and everyone else were very professional"
Cons: "I understand the need for the emergency landing, and an happy that passenger is still alive. But the almost / hours we spent sitting on the runway in Little Rock for the limited amount of medical supplies, that could of been replenished in Dallas was a waste of every passenger on that flights time"
Cons: "The seats do not recline & they are very small so it was hard to be comfortable. My daughter found it hard to rest. The extra bag fees were a surprise and the fact that we landed an hour late because there was bad weather but we weren't told that we would be late until we were about to land and by then our ride had been waiting an hour and there was no way to notify them. I will not fly Frontier again unless I absolutely have to."
Cons: "I had pre checked in but when I got to the gate (on time for the flight but late in the boarding process) they didn't make an announcement for last calls or for any checked in passengers so I missed my flight. They were changing over the signs for the next flight, so it still read my destination, but the time was an hour later so I thought it had been delayed."
Pros: "2.5 hours is long enough to get thirsty, a cup of water would have been nice."
Pros: "I got there."
Cons: "Claustrophobic, charged for everything, no blankets. In the future, I'll pay more to fly with a different carrier. Also, the hard sell at the end of the flight for the credit card was obnoxious beyond compare."
Cons: "The small seats and no leg room"
Cons: "I do not feel I willl fly Frontier again. The crew was nice and flight fine. However, the way you nickel time your passengers is beyond awful. How unfriendly can you be!"
Cons: "The flight was ok,but the stewardess let small children run all over the plane and climb all over the seats."
Pros: "I like that the seats are thinner without a lot of padding. It gives more leg room. I like that my knees aren't hitting that seat in front of me. That crew was very nice."
Cons: "I don't like having to pay extra for my luggage. One bag should always be free and extra bags should be paid for. Paying for water is bad too. Water is cheap. People would buy a snack if they get free water. The fold down tray is also too small."
Pros: "Nice staff and crew."
Cons: "On Frontier chairs don't go back. You have to pay for carry on (not including a purse or backpack) and check bags. If you want to guarantee you sit with your partner/friend you have to pay additiona fees at early check in. That's just straight up wrong."
Pros: "NOTHING NOT A DAMN THING"
Cons: "Almost $100 in hidden fees, having to pay for a seat, not getting a refund for ambiguous checkout jargon for a higher priced seat before I even checked out - so just changing my mind cost me money, sitting on a packed plane next to sick people isn't fun since I'm sick now, the planes are cheaper and made with charging customers money in mind. Overall, a completely horrible experience. Never again."
Pros: "I was stuck in the Dallas airport for 15 hours. The plane was broken waited on s part and was delayed and finally canceled. Scheduled to leave at 6am finally left at 8:05 pm. I was stuck in the Dallas airport for 15 hours. The plane was broken waited on s part and was delayed and finally canceled. Scheduled to leave at 6am finally left at 8:05 pm."
Cons: "I was stuck in the Dallas airport for 15 hours. The plane was broken waited on s part and was delayed and finally canceled. Scheduled to leave at 6am finally left at 8:05 pm."
Cons: "Checking in / dropping off bags: pulled many out of line to go ahead because they had obviously shown up late. Long line"
Cons: "Again held up leaving by "paperwork""
Pros: "Low base price, clean plane, pay for what you use,"
Pros: "very efficient"
Cons: "seats wouldn't recline"
Pros: "Made the trip safe"
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable."
Cons: "Delayed for 3+ hours"
Cons: "Ridiculous additional fees for seating on the plane as well a carry-ons."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "The ticket taker at my gate was very rude and did not give any information about my flight. Even one of the flight attendants was rude. Plus, my gate on my ticket was wrong so I almost missed my flight."
Cons: "I miss this flight.. Which was my returning flight home. Due to a flight coming to Cincinnati being cancelled thanks to mechanical issues and pilots working the maximun hours they are allowed. When asked about what frontier could offer the associate lied and stated they only had flights for Saturday ."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "I didn't know I had to pay for a carry-on bag upon arrival. That's an additional $45 I didn't know about. There was a 4 hour delay and no clear explanation as to why. There was never an agent at the desk when people tried to ask. Our gate changed 3 times. Overall an awful experience and I will never be flying Frontier again."
Cons: "There was a delay of over an hour and half. Boarding process was pretty terrible."
Cons: "Charge $45+tax for ONE checked bag AND $40+tax for a CARRY ON!?! I'll be sharing this fact with Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Instagram, FourSquare and Yelp. I'm never flying Frontier again and I'll be telling everyone I know to avoid them as well."
Pros: "All Awesome!"
Pros: "My bags was lost didn't even offer any thing to compensate me for the risk inconvenience that I had to spend 100.00 I already paid for my baggage can I get a refund too"
Pros: "The flight was a different experience than most of the other airlines that I have dealt with. I liked Carl the coyote as the plane's mascot and the flight attendants were kind."
Pros: "In every way"
Cons: "A to Z"
Pros: "One of the attendants was courteous and entertaining. She made the trip that much more enjoyable."
Cons: "Price of drinks and snacks. I was disinclined to order anything, and kept to myself."
Pros: "First time flying with Frontier. No complaints other than having to pay for my carry on luggage. But when I only spent $80 (taxes and fees included) to fly from Dallas to Denver, I'm still happy."
Pros: "Delivery of promised services"
Cons: "Things out of anyone's control ie security"
Cons: "I bought my ticket online for $41. I went through two long lines to get my boarding pass. At the end of the second line I was refused a pass because it was 25 minutes until flight time. I was told I had to be rebooked on another flight to the tune of $99 plus $30 baggage fee. Since I had no other choice I rebooked for a flight NINE hours later. After all this I was sent to TWO different WRONG gates nearly missing that flight. At least I got an apology for that. The wrong gate fiasco was because Frontier shares gates with Jet Blue and Spirit. I could not hear the gate change announcements because I am hearing impaired. A lovely way to spend a day in Denver!"
Pros: "crew was fantastic"
Cons: "seats do not recline, and very narrow."
Cons: "No complementary drinks. Short fold down tables."
Pros: "We boarded quickly, the plane was clean, the fare was cheap, and the crew was courteous."
Cons: "I didn't like the tiny tray table."
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "You get what you pay for, I guess. It's so sad to see a once customer-focused company become only about the numbers. Tiny seats, EVERYTHING is an up charge."
Pros: "flight on time"
Cons: "totally squished between two largely overweight individuals. This was the most awkward interaction I've had with the human race in my 41 years of existence. Can there not be an overweight seating section with two seats per row and charge them more?"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"
Cons: "Very slow baggage claim. Had to wait about 1/2 hour."
Pros: "Your crew was nice"
Cons: "I am 6 feet tall, and found your seats entirely too tight for my frame. I'm not overweight, just tall, as are many people. Worse, I paid $150 for my ticket, and other passengers I spoke with paid either $100 or $38 - round trip. Apparently I didn't check your site on the days of the week that you offered your discounts. I then had to pay $40 x 2 for my little carry on bag, which was ridiculous. I plan never to fly with you again."
Cons: "The plane didn't leave the terminal for over an hour after boarding!"
Cons: "Wish I didn’t have to pay for a cup of water"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 5 hours."
Pros: "Unfriendly staff, huge delays in departure"
Pros: "Staff"
Cons: "Overcrowded too noisy"
Pros: "Got Thru the line quickly"
Cons: "Little snugglely"
Pros: "Very quick to board active military. Pleasant crew. Arrived early with a shortened flight time."
Cons: "I’m an average height male with an above average build. I was fairly cramped in my seat with very little room to move."
Cons: "I didn't have any food. Can rate it"
Cons: "It's was delayed 3 hours didn't land till 3am. Was suppose to land at 11:30"
Cons: "The water was free"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "I loved O'Hare more than DFW, people at DFW are rude and just a disappointment to humans, but O'Hare was so awesome!! (spirit airlines)"
Cons: "Dfw airport SPIRIT AIRLINES CREW."
Pros: "The fare is cheap. The airplane(s) are new and mostly clean. The crew were very friendly, though, my interaction with them was limited at best. If your only concern is price, this is a good choice, but plan ahead and know Spirit's checked and carry-on bag fees (and all the other fees, such as printing your own ticket.)"
Cons: "It's Spirit Airlines. I arrived at my destination in once piece. Nothing was over-the-top good or bad. The seats are smaller than traditional. With additional bag fees, the pricing is very similar to other airlines. The seat backs are very thin and as long as there is not an energetic child behind you jumping from seat to seat (There was in my case.) this isn't much of problem. In short - I didn't die."
Pros: "Was late bad attitude from the front desk,."
Cons: "None"
Pros: "Not comfortable seats, but hey it spirit. Flight was hot!"
Cons: "Too hot"
Cons: "The pricing for baggage is not clear and consistent on website."
Pros: "Cheap tickets"
Cons: "Waited to get off the plane for 25+ minutes without moving."
Pros: "Promptness and crew entertaining in funny professional way."
Cons: "Length of sales pitch for credit card."
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled and I was not informed. I found out from my friend who was notified. By the time I had the information all the flights on all the other airlines that were NOT cancelled due to nonexistent weather between Dallas and Chicago were sold out. I promise, I don't care what the fare difference is, I won't give Spirit airlines another dollar."
Pros: "Delayed 2+ hours for an unknown reason"
Pros: "Great landing!"
Cons: "Stuck in between two screaming and kicking kids."
Pros: "Your crew were very kind, patient and interesting . I needed a wheel chair and the two that were there were needed by other people. They got a wheel chair for me and visited while we waited. You have good people."
Pros: "Good crew and decent prices"
Cons: "Cabin is a little tight and seats don't recline or adjust. Size limit on the one carry on bag is a little small."
Pros: "I loved the friendliness and timeliness"
Cons: "I didn't like the enormous up-charge at the gate on luggage."
Pros: "We like Spirit, good service,affordable flights."
Pros: "I never booked a flight with your airline. I shouldn't be charged for a flight I never booked."
Cons: "I never booked a flight with your airline. So I got charged for nothing."
Pros: "everything went as planned"
Cons: "had to buy a new ticket from American and spend an additional $300. Stay away from Spirit"
Pros: "Inside was clean"
Cons: "It was too cold inside Requested for blanket but did not get You were late and record shows you are always latew"
Pros: "The fly atendants were Great and had a lot of patients"
Cons: "The lady behind me made the flight hell, her and her rude children, I believe they should have made her bring a car seat for her missed behaved child just like the other couple did, they brought their toddler a car seat and purchased seating for him. She didn't. The way I see it for the child's safety they should force the parents in to purchasing a seat at least at half coast. Her daughter and son "toddler" kicked my seat half way to Dallas I have bad kidneys I finally turned around and addressed it, by then I was fed up since it was the second time so I have to admit I did it in a rude way. The fly attendant was very helpful she spoked to the lady who also was very rude twice and had me move seats and the girl who was sitting next to me had to pay an additional $75.00 for a better seat where she wasn't being kicked being that she as well had a bad back. I just think if the parents are trying to be cheap and avoid paying an extra seat not caring for their child's safety they should force them into it or plain simple not allow them to board... It was by far the worse experience even and I had just switched airlines from American to Spirit..."
Pros: "The staff overall were pleasant."
Cons: "The cost I had to pay for my luggage $52 each way rediculous. The lack of space in the seats. Couldn't put my seat back even a little, my knees where touching the seat in front of me and I felt like the person next to me was sitting on my lap. Couldn't even get a glass of water without having to pay."
Pros: "Getting sooner to my distanation"
Cons: "The switch of gate at the last minutes at O'hare."
Pros: "Boarding was relatively easy and the plane ride was decent."
Cons: "As usual, Spirit will pimp you for high baggage fees. Paying $55 for a carry-on bag is insane."
Pros: "Plane was new, boarding was quick. Crew was professional and kind."
Cons: "I had to pay for carry-on luggage $50.00 Nothing on the plain was free of charge, not even a glass of water."
Cons: "Well when I got to my sit there was a person on my seat, the crew guy had me standing till every one sat down even then you think they would give me a complematery drink, no the head crew lady was rude and did not want to accommodate to my needs even after some one messed up with my sit"
Pros: "All services"
Pros: "Prices"
Cons: "Boarding through outside."
Pros: "The price point was good. The flight crew was good."
Cons: "Took along time to board. The seats aren't very comfortable. They're also small. Not a lot of knee room."
Cons: "getting charged for a carry on is bullshit."
Pros: "They were able to switch us to emergency row seating."
Cons: "Too expensive for everything. No room at all for anything. Super uncomfortable"
Cons: "It was delayed so long that they canceled it"
Pros: "The flight was cheap."
Cons: "Spirit considers luggage a "frill." If you plan to pack anything other than a very small backpack, be ready to pay $50-$100 more. At that rate, you could fly a regular carrier with more seat space as Spirit cramps you in with tighter seats that's don't recline."
Cons: "Every leg of my flight was delayed for no obvious reason."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled and we had to rebook with AA"
Cons: "the flight was cancelled. no reason was given as to why."
Pros: "I liked getting to Chicago ahead of schedule. I like the opportunity to apply for a credit card with reward points. I also, like not getting my shoulders bumped into by the food carts."
Pros: "They got us back 45 minutes early!!!!"
Cons: "Everything was great"
Pros: "The crew was very pleasant and cheerful."
Cons: "They didn't do a great job of expressing that the flight was no longer delayed, it made boarding pretty confusing."
Cons: "ORD had terrible lines and there were so many crying children on that flight. Spirit is the cheapest but I finally had enough of their fees"
Cons: "When I purchased ticket it showed there "might" be a charge for carry on baggage. I couldnt find an easy way to know for sure. When I got to the airport to get my boarding pass I couldnt find a way to claim I had carry on baggage. When I tried to get on the plane the lady laughed at me and said i couldnt take my carry on bag. She sent me to someone that wanted to charge me $100 for my carry on bag. The plane ticket was only $69. I was almost out of money and didnt have $100. I told the person how much money I had ($41) and he kept asking me if i had more than that. Every time I told him I had $41. Finally he called someone and they let me pay $35 for the carry on bag. Be carefull flying with Spirit because in my opinion they are greedy bastards."
