Pros: "and was stuck with emergency exit."

Pros: "Boeing plane was so comfortable and modern and new."

Cons: "There are too many good flight times with extensive layovers not enough non stop flights at reasonable times"

Cons: "Absolutely full flight with no physical distancing."

Pros: "The crew was fine, friendly enough, although I was incredibly disappointed that they didn't force people to wear their masks as they boarded. They also didn't enforce masks over noses--rendering masks useless."
Cons: "The flight was completely full. And people weren't wearing masks as they boarded, and the flight attendants did nothing about that. Also, there was no distancing IN the airport during boarding. It's NOT DIFFICULT to put tape marks on the ground to ensure physical distancing. It is THEIR responsibility to make sure the process is safe, since half of the people seem to not care about distancing (or mask wearing). I'm incredibly disappointed and I will be flying Southwest for the time being: I hear they're better at enforcing distancing."

Cons: "Late and then mechanical issues."

Cons: "Baggage delivery was slow and then split between 2 different terminals"

LOS ANGELES.... WHERE THE TEMPERATURE IS A PERFECT..... 72 DEGREES..... FAHERENHEIT** —-a couple of movies."
Cons: "*ding We Are GoingToBeLanding In Two Hours. *ding* I noticed there were a number of anno — *JUST WANTED TO LET YOU KNOW.... THAT WE MAY EXPERIENCE SOME TURBULENCE.... BUT WE SHOULD BE LANDING A LITTLE EARLY..... IN ABOUT AN HOUR AND 45 MINUTES... YOU SHOULD REACH YOUR DESTINATION.... IN BEAUTIFUL... SUNNY... LOS ANGELES...* —uncements in the middle of watching a movie. And it seem — *ding* Some TurbulenceMayOccur PleaseFascenSeatBelts. FlightAndCrew PleasePrepareForLanding in OneHour and FortyFive Minutes *ding* —ed difficult to relax and pay attention to that movie. It sorta seemed like the pilot wanted us to — *ALRIGHT EVERYONE WE’RE EXPERIENCING SOME TURBULENCE HERE.... JUST WANTED TO LET YOU ALL KNOW.... TO FASCEN YOUR SEATBELTS..... AND PLEASE REMAIN SEATED* —pay attending to him instead of the movie or whatever other people were doing."

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "Complimentary wine and beer but no food! Entertainment pretty good."
Cons: "No food even for sale and no internet"

Pros: "I loved the movie options, It really made it a great experience."

Pros: "I did not use the food and entertainment. You should offer a not applicable option. The service and crew were great. And I appreciated the new comfortable plane with modern conveniences such as charging ports and an entertainment system. I was randomly assigned an economy plus seat and it was wonderful. All the economy seats should be like it."

Cons: "Terrible delays entirely their responsibility. No attempts to accommodate. Single worst travel experience I’ve ever had."

Pros: "The seats were smalllish but had excellent amenities, such as a multifunction screen and built-in chargers for my phone or such."
Cons: "We were 35 minutes late in boarding, which is not a big deal, but the cabin temperature was very warm and I was sweating most of the trip. Not happy about that."

Pros: "Plane was alright."
Cons: "Delayed departure delayed deboarsing. Extra flight time = 1 hr due to delays."

Pros: "The have the lotus cookies which is my favorite ."

Pros: "Everything but the seat. It did not have enough room and it was very unconfortable when the people in front reclined their seats back."
Cons: "Small seating space."

Pros: "The crew was amazing, flight was very smooth, arrived early, plane clean, service was great."
Cons: "For being in first class, my seat did not recline so I couldn't sleep and audio for my entertainment center was not working"

Cons: "Packed like sardines; the seats are getting narrower and the seat pockets are ridiculously small."

Cons: "The seats."

Pros: "The crew was friendly. They attempted to resolve issues quickly. The service was late getting out but just barely and on time to arrive."
Cons: "Broken screen in front of me and my seat wouldn’t recline. The crew was helpful to resist the screen and it worked for a bit. But it’s a bit disappointing to see a new aircraft be poorly cared for. Boarding was just a mush of people. Why bother to have reached gold status if every Tom dick and Harry with a credit card will just plow ahead of you?"

Pros: "We landed safely"
Cons: "I was astounded at the miserable "cattle car" experience of this flight. When the person in front of me reclined his seat, the back was shoved to within about a foot of my face. Talk about "In Your Face!" It was nearly impossible to exit from my window seat to the aisle, since there is almost no vertical space open from floor to ceiling in which to move. Flying used to be fun--this is awful!"

Pros: "The free movies on the screens in the back of every seat"
Cons: "Lack of leg room"

Cons: "Terrible seats and no option to change cause I had to contact the third party vs company where I bought my tickets"

Pros: "Individual view screen"
Cons: "Small seat"

Pros: "Easy, smooth."

Pros: "No in seat entertainment"
Cons: "Need more food options to purchase"

Pros: "Made my connection on time"
Cons: "Customs is unorganized. I used Kosik & still had to wait in line twice. Once before i got my luggage and again after i got my luggage. Whew! Be sure you schedule two or three hours between connections or you will miss your flight.I had to wait at carresol for luggage, then drag to drop off point. Take train to gate, quite stressful"

Pros: "New and Updated plane, great service, great crew."

Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "Once we got to Chicago our flight was delayed: originally scheduled to arrive in LA at 1800 we will not arrive until 2000."

Pros: "AA customer service was great because we had missed our connection from Rome to Chicago. They got me and my daughters on the next available flight back to LAX with preferred seating that we had already paid for. They proactively checked my carry-on and the flight had all the individual entertainment amenities we were hoping for. The crew was friendly and attentive."
Cons: "There was nothing about this flight I didn't love."

Pros: "I enjoyed the entertainment because I don't watch movies in the theater often. The movies I saw in-flight were recent films I've been wanting to see and made time pass fairly quickly."
Cons: "I'm not a giant, but there definitely was not enough leg room in the main cabin. I could not sit comfortably, especially in the middle seat."

Pros: "The flight attendants were beyond amazing! Throughout the flight they made sure we had plenty of snacks and drinks. Amazing!"
Cons: "I didn't like being told there were no seats together and being charged to sit together with my partner. I found out there were several seats available once we boarded. Disappointing."

Pros: "Everything!"

Cons: "Seat broken tray table broken reading light did not work 15 total hours in the air and 7 of them the movie system did not work Paid for upgraded seat and did not get one - got moved to a standard seat."

Pros: "Traveling out was easy"
Cons: "Coming back was harder. As this was booked via Alaska but flown with partner American - coming back American's website would not allow me to print my boarding pass. A note said I had to check with customer service when I got to the airport. Which took 40 min to get to a rep. Once there they had trouble printing. Had to call corp - then finally a boarding pass with 25 min to get though TSA and to the gate. #stressfull"

Pros: "Good Entertainment. One flight attendant was great."
Cons: "American Airlines Seats were too close together. The plane was way way too hot. Asked the flight attendants and spoke to the captain after the flight as the front coach section of the aircraft was at least 10 degrees hotter than the rear. We were all taking layer of off cloths as it was so hot. Seems the first class attendants were not monitoring the temps which regulars the temps just behind first class. Told the flight attendant who also acknowledged it but the first class attendants did not make the change Many were angry. We were on the Tarmac for almost 1.5 hours waiting for the plane to be de-iced. No AC during the process."

Pros: "The space , the TVs , the free drinks and the service"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Even in main cabin extra the leg room was terrible, the seat barely reclined and the plan was terribly old."

Cons: "Delay boarding and then dropped us off at a remote runway and had to wait 45 minutes for a bus to main terminal!"

Pros: "Seats were comfy, LOVED the enterainment system!"
Cons: "No complaints here."

Pros: "Not much. Cheese plate was ok."
Cons: "Felt like a sardine. Knees were up against the seat I front fighting for elbow space with person in the middle. Worse seating than Ryanair in Europe."

Pros: "Staff was helpful but on board and at the airport"
Cons: "Cleaner and more modern seats. Look run down"

Cons: "Longer seat belts"

Pros: "Smooth ride and easy boarding"
Cons: "We started to print our boarding pass and needed some help, we had to wait for the staff because of the limited staff helping in the floor"

Pros: "My husband and i we want to seat next to each other"
Cons: "1) Chicago O'Hare Airport Airline staff very rude. 2) from Los Angeles to Chicago my husband and i are not sitting to each other. My husband is upset. 3) from Chicago to Los Angeles my husband and i are not sitting to each other. It happened again. Very disappointing. We think the airline doing this intentionally."

Pros: "A pleasant surprise when overbooked flight was announced was that I could give up seat on Chicago to LA flight and get a direct flight Chicago to San Francisco and still make my connection to Santa Rosa. A very nice perk. Everything comfortable on flight."
Cons: "Can’t think of anything. Comfortable flight. Good flight attendents."

Pros: "boarding very easy"
Cons: "no drinks ir snacks offered"

Pros: "I like that the seats"
Cons: "Only one bag of pretzels lol"

Cons: "I asked a flight attendant for headphones. He nodded and never returned."

Pros: "Plac3d on Isle seat upon request with staff"

Pros: "All services where very good from check in to arrival In L.A."
Cons: "There wasn't anything I didn't like."

Pros: "Plane was on time"

Pros: "Comfort"

Pros: "Due to technical difficulties, the entire flight received DIRECTV service at no charge."
Cons: "The boarding gate changed without notice and we had to scramble to a new gate. Turbulence over the Rockies added time to the flight."

Cons: "To watch anything, must pay to watch a tv show or movie. Internet has to be paid for too."

Cons: "Male attendant is very poor"

Cons: "several people assigned to the same seats, mine included. lots of last minute moving around."

Cons: "The guy putting his feet on me next to the window"

Cons: "Na"

Pros: "See above."

Pros: "All good no complanits!"

Pros: "Got to visit Chicago for the first time this weekend and has an amazing time! The flight was smooth and the price was unbeatable! Can't wait to go again!"
Cons: "Cheap price and late night flights! I also liked the crew service. They were great"

Pros: "All was normal. So fine."
Cons: "The delay. Sick passenger and icy wings. None the fault of United"

Pros: "I absolutely loved that they had wifi onboard."
Cons: "More vegetarian options for eatables would be better."

Pros: "Quick boarding, the crew was great, arrived early"
Cons: "The wifi was inconsistent"

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "they were late and departed much later than scheduled."

Pros: "The plane crew were friendly and accommodating"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats, no food, and no free wifi"

Cons: "The seats were terribly uncomfortable (including her flight to Chicago). The cushion made me slide down the seat and could not get comfortable."

Cons: "Absolutely no room in these seats. Back row seats do not recline."

Pros: "Compensation with free movies instead . It would have been nice if there is free WI-FI too ."
Cons: "Twice delay on actual departure"

Cons: "Took 35 minutes to get to a open gate after landing."

Cons: "We were connecting to this flight after flying in from Rome. Initially we were scheduled for an 8:30pm flight, but after landing early asked if we could change to an earlier flight. They graciously bumped us up to a 7:30pm flight, which trimmed our 4-hour layover down to 3pm. Cut to 6:15pm...we find out that the flight is not delayed AN HOUR due to a "late inbound flight." Long story short, the 7:30pm flight ended up departed later than the 8:30pm flight we were originally scheduled on so we didn't get to LA until after we were originally supposed to!!"

Cons: "our flight was delayed more than 2 hours due to weather. Of course, not a pleasure to have, after flying so far, but I appreciated how apologetic the crew and pilot was, under the circumstances"

Pros: "Finally sitting in my seat"
Cons: "3 hrs late sucks"

Cons: "The $25 each way for piece of luggage"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Delayed, rude stewadess"

Pros: "Crew were friendly."
Cons: "stuck on a 4 hour flight with a seat where the cushioning is worn out, you would think on a longer flight they could include some in-flight entertainment, but that's an extra $8."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "It was the tiniest, most uncomfortable plane I have ever been on. The inflight entertainment was horrible, everything needed their app, which you can only download with internet and there is no notification about this prior to take off. Seat was horrible, tiny, I was in pain after the flight...never again"

Cons: "Perfect"

Cons: "Delayed"

Cons: "They held us on the plane from Indy to Chicago for so long that most of us knew we were going to miss our flights. I ran all the way to my gate to discover that the plane took off 10 minutes earlier than it was supposed to. I was told there were no other flights to LA and I would have to get a hotel until tomorrow. I was only going to be in California for 2 days so every second counts, so when I became upset the man checked again and found me a seat on a plane that took off in an hour. I was grateful but at the same time I was kind of displeased that he didn't offer that to me originally."

Cons: "No blankets in economy class. I was quite cold at first"

Cons: "Seats were hard, worst I've ever experienced. Seat power outlets were inconvenient."

Pros: "The directTV was great."

Cons: "Almost a 4 hour delay. Good weather across the country so this was clearly Uniteds problem."

Pros: "New plane, courteous staff. everything on time--what else could you want?"
Cons: "There were some crying babies, (5 of them--yikes) but nothing you could do anything about."

Pros: "Everything was great!"

Cons: "It would have been helpful if hanging a garment bag were available, which was the case on my return flights to DC on American Airlines."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Outlets don't work. The African American stewardess was rude. Seat didn't recline"

Pros: "Staff was great"
Cons: "Second delay in a row"

Pros: "How late we left"
Cons: "How late we arrived"

Cons: "not clean"

Cons: "Arrival seemed uncoordinated and didn't have a dedicated terminal gate."

Pros: "Nice crew"

Pros: "Fairly clean aircrafts Friendly crew"
Cons: "Seats do not recline There is not even one complementary drink"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Poor customer service, we left 2.5 hours late based on mechanical issues"

Pros: "friendly attitude"
Cons: "$85 for two checked bags, many little issues along the way but got there safely"

Pros: "Nothing"

Pros: "Arriving on time"
Cons: "Being charged at online check-in​ fir a standard seat and a carry-on bag."

Pros: "Customer service"

Cons: "Additional costs for selecting a seat and carrying on a bag that was not readily apparent when the flight was originally booked, but added $50+ to the overall cost of the flight. In addition, I experienced a 2+ hour delay on my flight from Chicago to LAX on a Sunday evening, which soured the comfortable end to my weekend travel experience."

Pros: "Flight boarded on time. Seats don't recline, but are comfortable and give good lumbar support. Good value if you don't have a carry-on and bring your own snack. Crew was good."
Cons: "Although boarding was complete at 6:20 for a scheduled departure of 6:35, we were told at 6:45 that we were delayed waiting for paperwork but should push back in 10-15 min. We sit in silence until 7:40 and are then told that there was an engine inspection just completed and we should push off now. Wheels weren't off the ground until 8:05. A little more communication would be nice when they cause a 90 minute delay sitting on the plane."

Cons: "Honestly I wouldn't fly through this airline again. Although the price was low, once you add cost for luggage and seating, it is not actually a low price. Could not get comfortable, even when we paid for the better seats on the return."

Pros: "Cheap"
Cons: "No place to charge a phone on the plane."

Pros: "We have not left yet 4 hr delay"
Cons: "FWe have not left yet 4 hr delay"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Overpriced, no reclining seats, no entertainment, no snacks, $60 charge for a carry on, no drinks included, but mostly I hated that they tried selling me a credit card during my flight."

Pros: "I was charged $3.50 for water. WATER!!!"

Pros: "Temperature in the cabin.just comfortable."
Cons: "Seating very tight and reclined seats."

Cons: "very delayed, so i had to cancel"

Cons: "I will never fly Frontier again. The initial flight was cheap, but I got nickel-and-dimed for everything else. If we had lost pressure it would not have surprised me if you had to swipe your credit card for the oxygen mask. Couple that with uncomfortable seats and rude service and I really regretted not just spending the extra $100 on a United flight."

Pros: "I was able to travel with my service animal with no issue. Staff was extremely accommodating."
Cons: "No entertainment and food/beverages too expensive. $2.99 for a can of soda or a small bag of chips?? Insane!!"

Pros: "There was a 5 hour delay from Chicago to LAX with zero communication on reasons for delays or expected travel time. The only thing offered for apologies was a credit to a new flight with Frontier. Won't happen as I won't fly with them again."

Pros: "Once we actually got in the air the flight was fine. Didn't take too long and the crew were lovely in getting us what we needed."
Cons: "We were delayed because of weather first at the gate and then for almost 2 hours after we boarded but were left on the tarmac unable to take off. This is the part that bothered me the most. Perhaps the airline didn't know we would be held that long but on the plane once they told us the crew also got a bit annoyed after 2 hours when everyone needed to get up to use the bathroom which should have been expected since they literally had us waiting and going no where for that entire time. This situation could have been handled better and communicated more clearly upfront to the passengers. It probably didn't make a lot of sense to board us to only have us wait another 2+ hour stretch."

Cons: "Most uncomfortable flight I've ever been on!!!!"

Cons: "The first half was fine, but the person next to me had two small dogs in a bag and one of them pooped halfway through. You would not believe the smell, my whole row spend the second half of the flight breathing through our shirts."

Pros: "Only good thing about this airline is the crew ladies."
Cons: "The plane was making a horrible sound the first hour or the flight and everyone was laughing or joking about it like if the plain was gonna crash. Plus, the seats are AWFUL: NO reclining seats!!! Thin and narrow, uncomfortable like no others. Plus, they charge you for EVERYTHING!!! In addition to your flight ticket they charge you EXTRA for the seat, NOT EVEN 1 BAG IS INCLUDED! You have to pay for everything online, and if you pay at the counter before the flight they have the nerves to even upcharge you and scale the price 100% UP! NO free snacks at the flight or even water... It was just a terrible experience overall..."

Pros: "We paid extra for extra leg room and reclining seats. We will fly any other way. Worth every penny."
Cons: "We were moved from our seats on the flight to Chicago. I was very, very upset about that."

Pros: "the staff was very friendly and the plane was spotless. Definitely will Be using frontier again."
Cons: "I have nothing to complain about. Really did enjoy this flight. Way better experience then with Southwest or United."

Pros: "plenty of isle width and height which was a pleasant surprise and since the seats are the new thin profile it seemed like there was a very slight increase in leg room but its still not generous for passenger over 5 feet 6 inches tall."
Cons: "the seats were the new thin profile ones and have practically no cushioning so after about 45-60 minutes of sitting you feel it on your butt and back. Also, the headrest on these seats are low and not adjustable so passengers taller than about 5 feet 6 inches (like me) are going to get some neck strain after about an hour flight."

Pros: "Cost was excellent. Crew was friendly. Flight to Chicago was excellent, ahead of schedule."
Cons: "Plane returning from Chicago to LAX. Delayed 10 hours due to mechanical problems. Poor communication on the reasons why."

Pros: "When we landed and exited the plane"
Cons: "Charging for carryines just ain't worth it. I'm not ever flying frontier or spirit. The extra cost for no hassle will be worth it."

Pros: "I liked their crooked tactics in extracting money from customers"
Cons: "Everything, the agents at the counter were rude, when all the other flight companies allowed my carry-on they charged 60$ extra, the Seats were the most uncomfortable, there isn't anything known as legroom. I wasn't given water to drink because of which my sinus hurt."

Pros: "Easy"

Cons: "four hour delay, sat on runway forever, no gate when we arrived"

Pros: "Lower cost fares but you will eat up this savings with your time wasted due to lengthy delays."
Cons: "Unacceptable delays Infrequent updates that lack details from gate agents Delays happened on both legs of flights between major cities Seating is extremely cramped"

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "All the hidden costs"

Pros: "The flight departed early and arrived 30 mins earlier! Nice!"
Cons: "Flight attendant stated the water was free but then when asked for more said you needed to buy it for $1.99/bottle! Ridiculous!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything you have to pay for! Terrible policy"

Pros: "It's so nice to not be bombarded by mircrowave radiation durint the flight, thank you for not having wi-fi onboard, we appreciate it!"
Cons: "Seats could be more comfortable"

Pros: "Everyone was nice."
Cons: "I dont like to have to pay for bags, the seats dont recline, and you have to pay for soda. my flight couldnt get a gate in chicago airport, so flight was delayed an hour."

Cons: "Service was terrible staff not friendly never using this airline again"

Pros: "Airline was so attentive when our flight was delayed. I would definitely fly with frontier again!"

Cons: "No complementary meals included... not even snacks and beverages."

Pros: "crew and price excellent"
Cons: "baggage policy on Frontier is unclear. Security concern at Ohare as people brought bottles of water on board"

Pros: "Wasn' detlayed"
Cons: "Have to pay for every little extra thing"

Cons: "As someone who has never flown frontier before, I was unprepared for the MANY hidden fees that came from 1)choosing seats 2) carrying on hardly any baggage. If an airline claims to give cheaper flights, they should either get rid of these fees (since there is no way to actually avoid them), or simply be up front and work them into the price."

Pros: "Nice flight attendants."
Cons: "Pilot apparently didn't have a voice and never once talked to the passengers even when experiencing bad turbulence."

Pros: "flight was cheap and a direct flight"
Cons: "-Seats didn't recline -no WiFi -all drinks cost money (they didn't even give out water)"

Pros: "Felt queasy and female attendant was extremely gracious and comforting"

Pros: "Basic ticket price was good. Crew was friendly. Cabin was clean. Flight left on time and even landed early."
Cons: "Having to pay for all but 1 small bag. Having to pay to reserve seat. No Wi-Fi No in-flight entertainment of any kind. Not even a magazine."

Cons: "The professionalism on this flight from the crew was extremely poor. They would make bad jokes about the plane tipping over through the intercom. The crew was rude and very obnoxious constantly telling everyone to sit down when no one was even standing. Please retrain this crew. It’s embarrassing."

Pros: "nothing..."
Cons: "everything... I will never travel on spirit again if I can help it."

Pros: "The crew was kind and helpful."
Cons: "Seats are not that comfortable. I wish they reclined. Also, the excess baggage fee was ASTRONOMICALLY EXPENSIVE! So unnecessary. We pre-paid for a checked bag but since it exceeded 40 lbs (50 is standard), we were charged an additional $55. That’s VERY excessive for a 57 lb bag."

Pros: "Saved $50"
Cons: "Two hour delay."

Pros: "Evrething"

Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "$50 for each checked bag and $75 for carryon bags. Plane seating is child size, no room for a full grown adult. No I’m flight snacks. Nothing good happened on this flight at all. Horrible experience from beginning to end."

Cons: "Having to move from gate-to-gate three different times."

Pros: "Can only rate on everything but Entertainment & Food, since there was neither of those. Other than those it was 5 Stars all around."
Cons: "No complaints available."

Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Crew members clumsy"

Pros: "The plane didn't crash"
Cons: "Everything aside from the plane not crashing."

Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Absolutely nothing!"
Cons: "Boarding gate was closed early! Not announced! And had to pay $900 to book a flight new flight out! Luggage was lost and had to walk for two hours trying to find someone to help me when I arrived at LAX. No one was able to help and no one knew where my luggage was. Never again! Worst experience ever!!!!! Do not book with Spirit it's not worth the hassle!"

Cons: "Talking about Nicole and diming you. Left a real bad taste in my mouth"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Tickets are getting cancelled with no reason, Late arrivals departs. STRIKE GOING ONNNN....."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Everything was perfect"

Pros: "Happy to go back to Los Angeles California"

Cons: "Was supposed to land at 8:24am, didn't land until 9:10am"

Pros: "Quick. Friendly."

Cons: "Need slightly more leg room to be comfortable."

Cons: "CUSTOMER SERVICE IS TERRIBLE I WILL NEVER FLY WITH THIS COMPANY AGAIN EVERYONE IS RUDE AND WE PAYING TOO MUCH FOR THE FLY THAT WON'T EVEN LET US TAKE LOGGES OR HELP YOU CHECK IN"

Pros: "Leaving the Spirit Airlines baggage claim in LA"
Cons: "Flying Spirit Air The staff was surly when it wasn't being unfriendly. They broke both pices of my luggage and their baggage policy is as customer friendly as a 3rd world road block in rebel held territory."

Pros: "Tickets are good price but they kill you with the bag fees"
Cons: "Bags are so expensive $40 of first bag $90 for two bags Also i just landed and they lost one of my bags"

Pros: "Very bad service. Dirty toilet. Very unkind."

Pros: "At first the price seemed too good to be true. Turned out it was! We got there safely. Flight attendants were nice enough."
Cons: "Extra charge to sit together, extra for baggage- $50 for check in, $55 for carry on- no tv or movies, no food or snacks, minimal legroom- I'm 6' tall, seats didn't even recline. To top all of this off, this low price attracted a low end clientele who was disrespectful to the flight attendants and other passengers. Not worth the cost savings in my mind."

Cons: "Food should be available on flight complimentary and also carry on should be free."

Pros: "The trip was good overall I had a great time the service was good move promptly and it was pretty easy going"
Cons: "One thing that I didn't like is that the plane didn't have Wi-Fi you guys should offer Wi-Fi and give me an option to pay a little bit more not a full luggage it for over 40 pounds per luggage"

Pros: "Plane was not jammed full"
Cons: "Spirit has a lot of fees"

Cons: "I didn't like all the small fees everywhere."

Pros: "Everything was done with professional efficiency and courtesy."
Cons: "The food is just not really food. But if you want to cut expense you have to make sacrifices. Entertainment - there was none."

Cons: "Rude crew members"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Delays one before the flight and when we landed we had to wait in the plain for 1 hour. No food or drink and have to pay for any bag you have carry on or checked in be careful they do not tell you from the beginning"

Pros: "Only the initial "sucker price" which does NOT include ANY LUGGAGE or the ability to SIT WITH YOUR FAMILY without paying extra!!"
Cons: "They use an initial "SUCKER PRICE" which does NOT include ANY LUGGAGE or the ability to SIT WITH YOUR FAMILY without paying extra!! $50 extra for each piece of luggage ... EACH WAY1 If you don't pay at the check in counter they charge $100 for each piece of luggage - each way and that includes ANY BACKPACK WITH WHEELS! $25 FOR EACH FAMILY MEMBER TO SIT TOGETHER!!!! NO COMPLIMENTARY FOOD OR DRINK. 2 sodas are $5! (can't buy just one) NO none zero entertainment, not even a radio channel."

Cons: "The flight attendant "joked" with us that we were heading to New York instead of LA... Supposed to be funny but seriously rude and frightening; I almost had a panic attack. I am also severely disgusted by the airlines that include a dozen hidden fees but don't inform you of them when you are booking your ticket. It was due to a fluke that I discovered carry ons were not free, which led me to search further and find that printing boarding passes is not free, nor are beverages, nor.. anything else. While I understand Spirit's desire to make flights cheaper, you should just TELL PEOPLE THAT when they buy the ticket, I shouldn't have to discover it after the fact. I probably still would have bought your ticket and been much happier about it."

Cons: "Customer service is terrible, the flight was 2.5 delayed and then we sat on the runway for an additional hour. I would never fly this airline again."

Pros: "Flight was alright."
Cons: "They charge too much for luggage"

Pros: "Price of flight"
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable"

Pros: "Charismatic staff"
Cons: "late start boarding"

Cons: "I had to pay fees I was not aware of. Never taking it again."

Pros: "My plane landing and taking off with safety"

Pros: "nothing!"
Cons: "Everything."

Pros: "Employees were friendly and courteous."

Cons: "The flight was delayed by 4 hours... some of the crew for our flight was out right nasty!!!! One person that was at the gate , was just rude, there was however, a beautiful, black woman that was cool , calm and collected, friendly and service minded. I sure wish I had gotten her name. In the long run, we finally landed in LA 4 hours late, One thing about Spirit... you pay for everything.. even WATER on Spirit Seats, carry on's, WATER.... EVERYTHING!!!!!! I will never fly Spirit again."

Pros: "Good"
Cons: "Every thing is very good"

Pros: "Everything, the extra roomy seat, the fact that I did not have to buy what I did not need!"
Cons: "My first trip was cancelled due to mechanical problems but I was put up in a very nice hotel which compensated for the inconvenience. I will definitely fly Spirit again."

Cons: "I had never flown Spirit before so I did my research prior to my flight. Nowhere did it say online that you are unable to check in to a flight 45 minutes prior to departure. I attempted to check in the previous night and received an error screen, and subsequently missed my flight."

Cons: "Too many hiden charges after all with the extra charges it turn out expendive never again with spirit"

Cons: "Flight was cancelled. Received an email on the way to the airport that is was cancelled. Had to run through airlines and try to a new flight like I was in Home Alone. Luckily American Airlines pulled through but it was much more expensive. Worth it though. I'll never book with Spirit again after reading how often they cancel flights. Never thought its happen to me but I was wrong."

Pros: "They offered a hotel when I asked my supposed to sleep in there for"
Cons: "I don't like that my plane was delayed four hours and then canceled for mechanical issues and then couldn't even get rebooked till the next day in the evening time off though they refused to give me a ticket on another airline because they were still able to get me in the next day when I need it to be back in Los Angeles the day that I booked my flight"

Cons: "No leg space at all and the seats were extremely uncomfortable, I couldn't sleep on either flight."
