Airline reviews

Pros: "The aircraft was very clean, neat and well maintained. The crew was friendly. Process of checked-in luggage was seamless and straightforward."
Cons: "I found the istructions on some restricted items to be confusing and contradictory between instructions at the airport, the AA website and the TSA website. The agent at the counter was well-informed, though, and it all ended up going well."

Pros: "Flight attendants service"
Cons: "I don't like the new planes with no screens on it. I don't want to be watching at my cellphone for 3 hours. It's bad for everyone's eyes."

Cons: "N/A"

Cons: "I am still waiting for flight to DFW.. I"

Cons: "Couldn't turn on reading lights the entire 8 hour flight to Hawaii! 8 hour flight and only a wrap to eat. Not even food offered for purchase in the last 7 hours of the flight"

Pros: "There was nothing to like"
Cons: "Due to a two hour delay in customs we arrived at our departure gate 5min before boarding was supposed to close.... only to find out that our seats had been given away and there was no longer room for us on the airplane. The attendant offered little to no help and I was displeased with his service."

Cons: "I missed my flight to San Diego because the airline was late to Dallas"

Pros: "Everyone was helpful and fried. They did a real good job of moving people thru security fast. They processed like 150 people in line in about 10 minutes."
Cons: "We were delayed out of Chicago almost an hour because they had to scrape ice off the wings. I really stressed over possibly missing my layover. I ended up having to race to the it terminal in 10 minutes. I checked my bag because they said they were running out overhead space and then they went and put my bag on a LATER FLIGHT so I still don’t have my bag"

Pros: "The seats were comfortable, with adjustable headrests. Also, there were outlets to charge devices."
Cons: "No free WiFi."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The cliff notes of this debacle are, inbound flight arrived late to Montreal, I contacted AA social media team to make sure they could notify the gate of my connecting flight, they didn’t after they said they did. Flight arrived in Chicago a little early, I have to wait 15 min for my bags from the valet, I run to the next gate and arrive with 13 min to spare, the gate agent (not nice) goes I’m sorry we already closed the door. I’m like, huh? Then he has the gall to tell me, “well had someone called us we could of held your seat”. That’s when I lost it. Needless to say I’m now flying to Dayton and back to Dallas. That’s in lieu of a 3:50 PM flight TOMORROW!"

Pros: "Fairly short trip but was able to used the in flight entertainment."
Cons: "Too many PA announcements and the volume when connected to the TV screens was way too loud! Gave us a heart attack everytime!"

Cons: "Canceled my flight"

Pros: "Average but what we’ve come to expect from american airline companies"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Seat isn’t very comfortable"

Pros: "Things went as they should have got a 2 hour flight."
Cons: "The inside of the plane around the air vents definitely could use some cleaning."

Pros: "The customer service/ticket agent skipped her lunch break to get us on the plane. She went way beyond the call of duty. We will be eternally grateful."

Pros: "Very timely, didn't take forever getting off the ground"
Cons: "As a first time traveler, it would have been nice to have a little help with navigating the airport once I arrived."

Pros: "On time, food service, good communication"
Cons: "Employee got us in the wrong terminal"

Pros: "Very clean. Friendly FA"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Non stop flight & friendly crew"
Cons: "No foot rest & seats not too comfortable"

Cons: "the plane started 1 hour late and I missed my plane to warsaw"

Pros: "There was a female flight attendant who was extremely rude and coarse with everyone on the flight. It was painful to watch and annoying to experience. I will pass on BA in the future. People who dislike other people should not be placed in customer service roles."

Pros: "All good, excellent crew and on time."
Cons: "The food, of coarse!"

Pros: "New plane, no delays"
Cons: "On way there wasted too much time.with delays"

Pros: "It has been a good experience! Kayak kept updating me about gates and terminals for my connecting flights..."

Pros: "I cannot comment because the total journey was without food."
Cons: "The crew is so rude that I was asked to remove the meat and eat the remaining. Is there no value for Veg eaters in American Airlines."

Cons: "3 hour delay. Old plane."

Cons: "Boarding was a little chaotic. Could have been more organized."

Pros: "The food was great!"
Cons: "The new baggage rule limits you to two bags in business on international flights☹️"

Pros: "staff was amazing, entertainment great, dasani sparkling lime water tasty, very clean and reasonably comfortable"
Cons: "the breakfast was made of 90% sugar - this was very disappointing."

Pros: "Everything was on time!"

Cons: "The flight was cancelled. I didn't receive a refund or free hotel accommodations. I've been on flights in Africa where free hotel accommodations were standard for a layover over 3 hours. A little embarrassing that an airline in America can't afford a hotel for people stranded in a city overnight."

Pros: "Poor attitude. Seemed as though they were doing us a favor serving us. Did not pick up garbage for at least an hour. Absolutely zero personality"
Cons: "I do not like flying American. Still sitting and waiting on my flight to Waco"

Pros: "Always we have a good experience"

Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "No entertainment on the flight"

Pros: "Flight attendants were nice"
Cons: "The seats were incredibly uncomfortable. There was no leg room and 122 of the space below the seat in front of me was taken up by a metal box attached to the seat. I couldn't put both feet under the seat in front of me. The food was bad tasting and overly processed. We were fed a lean cuisine. The entertainment was from mounted tv's in the aisle. At this point, all planes crossing the ocean should have individual tvs for a customer to watch. They had this 15 years ago, how do they not have it now."

Cons: "Having my 5am oneway flight cancelled 3 hrs before flight time resulting in rebooking with layover and tripple the time it would have taken to get to my destination"

Pros: "All good! Nice staff. Easy travel."

Pros: "The crew was very efficient and friendly while handling everyone. Flight was smooth, food was good. I went to the wrong terminal and did not know that the advertised finair flight was actually American Airlines, the AA ticket counter attendant went all out to make sure I made it to the gate. All this with less than an hour before departure."
Cons: "I went to the wrong terminal, the email ticket had finair in large print and in smaller print indicated American. Luckily I was able to literally run and make my flight. Would be better to more clearly indicate actual airline."

Cons: "Not able to check luggage all the way through"

Cons: "Small seats, no wifi, no chargers, terrible entertainment."

Pros: "Once we got on the plane, everything was pretty standard"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 5 hours."

Pros: "Commuter flight, got me where I needed to go. The crew and staff where really friendly, even with all the confusion of trying to move a couple with a young child out of the emergency row."

Pros: "No delays, went smoothly. Had to check my bag at the gate but no big deal."
Cons: "None"

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Crew was unhelpful, not prepared, only cookies for food, no personal entertainment, and charged check-in bag fee."

Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "The flights were delayed multiple times. No communication at your gates. Oh and I think my favorite was changing terminals and gates 5 TIMES within 1 hour at DFW! RIDICULOUS AND UNACCEPTABLE. NEVER AGAIN!"

Pros: "All personnel where polite,helpful, and respectful. Greg to have wifi and power chargers."
Cons: "There was no real entertainment on the screens. No movies."

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: "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 seats aren't very comfortable, but it was a short flight"

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."

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: "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: "Didn't think my seat was too comfortable. Had to sit on my neck pillow. But flight was on time. Crew friendly."

Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Horrible plane, old and not comfortable at all. Little entertainment to choose from and the technology on the plane was horrible. No healthy food options, won't fly United internationally again"

Cons: "The seating is cramped but to be expected in coach. No big deal."

Pros: "On time, courteous & caring flight attendant & desk staff. Unable to understand pilot or first officer's PA announcements...language & microphone issues. Airplane is severely cramped so flight was uncomfortable."
Cons: "See above"

Cons: "Food service"

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

Pros: "The older planes of United Airlines could use some remodeling. The entertainment system with controls in the middle of the arm rest where the elbow rests is such a bad idea, didn't even bother with this crappy unintuitive system. It was annoying and flashy with bright advertisements or something popping up on a night time flight just sooooooo annoying, turning it off was not intuitive and had to ask the flight attendants how to turn it off during their very busy work of handing out packages with five miniature pretzels and drinks to the passengers, was happy to get a whole cab of juice to myself though."

Pros: "Polite crew"
Cons: "Food."

Pros: "People were polite."
Cons: "I got my flight switched earlier. Paid $57 for it. Then this flight got delayed almost 2 hours so I ended up in NYC at the same time and it threw off my whole work day."

Cons: "Comfort, service.., terrible'"

Pros: "The flight was smooth"
Cons: "The seats felt stiff"

Cons: "Tight seating for transatlantic flight. More importantly avoid Toronto at all costs. Need to clear customs and go back through security again on a connecting flight. Takes forever. Food was not good at all."

Cons: "Boarding by zones causes passengers to have to stand longer while waiting to board, inconveniences them by having passengers seated in window and middle seats often arrive after the passenger in the aisle seat, and slows down the entire process because passengers settling into the front part of the plane frequently board and stow luggage while those seated in the back queue up behind them. Compared to boarding by row, the entire process is now one lengthy mess."

Pros: "overhead space for luggage and TV monitors for entertainment"

Pros: "The gate at the Chicago airport was well designed. There was a line for each boarding group, and you could line up early. This is particularly effective for some Asian flights, which can sometimes be chaotic with many different nationalities all lining up."

Pros: "I broke my arm and all of the gate agents were wonderful trying and succeeding in getting me A seats for my comfort."

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"

Cons: "The crew no food no pillow no blanket"

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: "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: "Crew and service were great"
Cons: "No wifi or video system on plane"

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

Pros: "Fare, boarding, seat selection, ease of purchase."
Cons: "On my first leg of my round trip flight free refreshments were offered. On my return flight they were not and was told everything beside water only was available for purchase. It also seemed a bit unsafe for during the course of the short 2:15 hr flight between Chicago and Austin for the Pilots to leave the cockpit with the only things standing between someone rushing the cockpit when the door is opened are a drink cart and an older female flight attendant."

Cons: "The small seats and no leg room"

Pros: "Bag charged"

Pros: "Steamboat Springs, CO There were many CUBS fans on this flight! Good to leave rainy Chicago & arrive in dry Denver! Even though the plane was late, I was still able to catch my Alpine Taxi to Steamboat!"
Cons: "There should be a way to know when the bathroom is available!"

Cons: "The fact that Reclining seats are a upgrade is unexceptable . The price online to check in your bags change during a check in. I was charged more than what your website state. The check-in reservation is was rude and unwilling to correct a computer glitch . She stated that your software had no ability to override a mistake."

Pros: "Not much. Very amateur service"
Cons: "To pay $40 for a carry on bag is being a thief. The seat in the plane do not recline... comfort is a thing of the past!"

Pros: "Little."
Cons: "Worst flight of my entire life."

Pros: "absolutely nothing."
Cons: "cheap seats, dirty plane, garbage in the front pockets. Nickle and dime you to death on everything!"

Pros: "The seats were comfortable enough. The departure was 40 min late, but the plane eventually landed according to the original schedule, which was nice. The price was very good, even with adding 40$ for too big carry-on."
Cons: "The attendants were talking way too much, making different announcements and explanations almost non-stop. They also organized some kind of reshuffling of people inside the plane due to the need to ... rebalance the aircraft. Never saw it at any other airline."

Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "They nickel and dime you for every little thing! You want to bring any luggage? Too bad it costs $35 or $60 per bag. You want to pick your seat? Too bad it's $11+. You want any food or drink on the plane? Too bad it's expensive."

Pros: "The price was good."
Cons: "But not that good."

Pros: "Crew were arguing with passengers over seating arrangements and when it came time to throw out garbage at the end they completely ignored half of the rows. Even after the lady next to me yelling to get their attention."
Cons: "See above."

Pros: "Aircraft"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Longest security line I have ever seen and I travel in a lot of countries all over the world that have outrageous security lines. Had an hour and a half to get through security and still missed the flight. Nothing could be done because the next flight was in 3 days."

Cons: "Lots of screaming children, but I had to fly to Orlando."

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

Pros: "I will never fly Frontier again. Poor customer service. Poor baggage handling. Poor timeliness of flight and baggage delivery. Poor communication of flight delays and baggage mix-ups. Understaffed. Undertrained. Poor seats, particularly considering I paid for the best. Inadequate compensation for 8+ hour delay and missing baggage for 3 days. After all the nickel and diming for seats, baggage (checked AND carry on) it would have cost me less to fly my preferred carrier and avoided every hassle, not to mention the inadequate compensation (again). Horrible, horrible experience."
Cons: "I will never fly Frontier again. Poor customer service. Poor baggage handling. Poor timeliness of flight and baggage delivery. Poor communication of flight delays and baggage mix-ups. Understaffed. Undertrained. Poor seats, particularly considering I paid for the best. Inadequate compensation for 8+ hour delay and missing baggage for 3 days. After all the nickel and diming for seats, baggage (checked AND carry on) it would have cost me less to fly my preferred carrier and avoided every hassle, not to mention the inadequate compensation (again). Horrible, horrible experience."

Cons: "The price of the trip did not include a seat, nor baggage, this was unclear and I felt misled. The seating is extremely uncomfortable. Checking in online was terrible, the website was hard to navigate, the prices were inconsistent (I was checking on my phone and computer at the same time and getting different rates for seats). I felt the communication was poor. I did not feel safe. I will not choose this Airline again."

Pros: "i would like a refund"
Cons: "when they didn't refund my money.... lost $500 on canceled flight, hotel, taxi, rent a car, taxis..etc."

Pros: "Good flight both ways. Nice flight personal no issues very pleasant over all experience."
Cons: "I did not like hidden cost. Extra per seat and bag even if carry on"

Cons: "Flight was late, seats were tiny and uncomfortable, plane wasn't clean, baggage took 25 min to arrive at carousel"

Pros: "Allowed to move to different seats when boarding ended. No first class to be compared to."
Cons: "Water and coffee should be offered for free."

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "What more could you ask for we were on time. The pilot saved 20 minutes in the air. Staff was polite and attentive. The plane was just renovated."

Cons: "I don't understand why my TSA pre-approval is not included on a Frontier Flight. I have Global Entry verification, and am surprised this is not honored."

Cons: "My checked luggage was broken when I picked it up."

Pros: "The flight left/arrived on time. The plane seemed fairly new and I liked the way that the seats don't go back. Crew was nice."
Cons: "Well, it would be nice if coffee and sofa/juices are no charge. That felt a bit nickel and diming."

Pros: "Everyone was so friendly. I enjoyed my flight to Orlando"

Pros: "We made it in one piece"
Cons: "-Hidden fees (carrying bag on cost nearly as much as the ticket) -Most uncomfortable seats I've ever seen on an airplane... Couldn't even recline -Staff was tolerable at best - Sat on Tarmac for 2 hours after "departing" from the gate"

Cons: "Seats were extremely uncomfortable, crew was very pleasant but leg room and seating are honestly the worst I've experienced."

Pros: "Crew and boarding."
Cons: "Pricing, so called insurance that is offered at check out, the websites rediciulous layout so hard to find what I was looking for. The amount of space on the plane. It made a four hour flight so uncomfortable and feel like eternity."

Pros: "Everything went off with out a hitch, very friendly service."
Cons: "I was caught off little off guard. I don't understand that you have to pay for a seat arter I bought the ticket I thought I was set and than an extra fee for a seat. First I ever saw of that ptocedure"

Cons: "They use to charge your luggage but in the web site they try to charge the seat. Very wierd"

Cons: "I will never fly Frontier again. Terrible experience overall. Blatantly disrespectful and unapologetic staff. Frontier is the equivalent taking a 'Greyhound' bus. The discount rates aren't much cheaper than flying other airlines do yourself a favor and fly with a normal carrier. The seats don't even recline on their planes. No free water. If they are this cheap and annoyed by the customers you can expect major concerns like safety, aircraft maintenance and the pilots to be equally as shotty and terrible."

Cons: "Flight was delayed and took a long time to board off the plane"

Cons: "Flight was delayed an hour!"

Pros: "Seats are too close. They don't lean back. Pilot was great."

Pros: "Seats weren't too miserable (i'm 6'4 so the tuna can effect is a constant concern; happy to say i didn't have to chew my knees)"
Cons: "delays on 100% of my frontier flights so far (2 / 2)"

Cons: "Too many hidden charges, the total fare ends up higher than all the other airlines. I'm sorry I would rather know how much and what I am paying upfront."

Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "The flight was delayed, meaning we didn't land in philly until after 1am and the airline did nothing more than shrug their shoulders. They didn't even give us complimentary coffee, still charging for it on the plane. It was awful."

Pros: "Seats were new but very narrow and uncomfortable. The supplemental air and the reading lights did not work."

Pros: "Cheap up grade to the front seat. They were in time attendants were responsive. The plane was clean. I'd reccomend a friend."
Cons: "The bag policy. I didn't get charged because I packed everything in my backpack. When I was checking in the rep asked me if I had a carryon I said no because I read the policy. However, if I didn't know that my backpack wasn't considered a carryon there is a chance she would have charged me"

Cons: "The flight was scheduled at 12am, but Frontier never told us it was moved till 9 until almost 3 in the morning. Even then they waited the cops to show up before telling us the bad news. The reason for the delay was that flight crew ran out of their working hours so they cannot fly the plane. Yet I don't see how Frontier are working to accommodate these stranded passengers in the meantime. Their ground crew had to wait Denver Hq to respond which was closed at the time. It was until five in the morning that we got the hotel, meal, and a travel voucher that I wonder if I will ever use. Huge disappointment to what they were five years ago."

Cons: "Cost of carry on too high. Delayed flight. Flight attendants rather rude."

Pros: "Getting home!"
Cons: "The usual. Someone kicking my seat ever 5 mins. And the delay but I didn't mind."

Pros: "The crew was great, very helpful and friendly!"
Cons: "No free cookies. The kid behind me kicked my seat too many times."

Pros: "Crew for Frontier was professional and extremely personable. I was completely satisfied with the experience! I would definitely fly with them again."
Cons: "Extra charges for everything from seats, a small bag, to drinks...."

Pros: "I liked that the price was lower than the other airlines"
Cons: "There was a charge for carry on baggage There was a charge for checking in at the counter There was a charge for on board drinks/snacks The seats were small the drop down tray was about the size a grown man's hand"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "People at the counters were very rude, I arrived and I was told they couldn't take me on the flight while the person next to me was accepted on to the same flight. Felt like I was very much discriminated against. Have not felt that way in my life"

Cons: "They did not refund our ticket during covid-19"

Pros: "I would’ve like to not wait in the airport for eight hours watching other flights around us leave"
Cons: "I would’ve like to not wait in the airport for eight hours watching other flights around us leave"

Pros: "Left on time, got in early.staff was nice"
Cons: "Not paying for water.."

Cons: "Was 5 minutes late for the check-in "deadline" and had to wait 12 hours until the next flight... Airlines used to try to accommodate passengers."

Cons: "We were delayed 3 times and the boarding process was unorganized."

Pros: "Staff was excellent! Very attentive and accommodating. They care about their passengers!"
Cons: "The seats were so close together near the back of the plane that we could not put our laptop on the tray in front of us. Also the seats did not recline!"

Pros: "The airline crew was great and friendly"
Cons: "We got the seats in the last row and couldn't recline them. Didn't have anywhere to charge my device. No app was provided for entertainment neither was there screens for our 4 hour plus flight."

Cons: "They charged me for my bag however when i was buying a ticket it wasn't written anywhere"

Pros: "Jet seemed new and clean, flight attendant very nice."
Cons: "The 5-hour delay! The 5-hour delay! The 5-hour delay! The 5-hour delay! The 5-hour delay! The 5-hour delay! The 5-hour delay! The 5-hour delay! The 5-hour delay! The 5-hour delay!

The 5-hour delay!"

Pros: "The Flight attendants and the pilots were great,"
Cons: "The flight was aver an hour delayed. With all the mess from the original flight to Chicago, I will never fly Spirit again."

Pros: "Prompt, took off on time. Seat was excellent."
Cons: "Nothing comes to mind"

Cons: "them charging for everything except the bathroom"

Pros: "The crew was nice overall. You can have coffee raffles for free. Seats weren't too bad for 5 hours flights."
Cons: "The Microphones were too loud. the crew talked too much trying to sell the rewards card. It was frustrating that the carry on is too expensive. I paid $100 total for my carry on. I thought I was saving money using this airline but I end up paying more for fewer services. My flight was 5 house flight with no wifi service. nothing to entertain with. I don't think I would take this airline again unless its 1-hour flight with no carry-on."

Pros: "About the only thing that I can say I liked is, the boarding process went smothly for me & my luggage was on time."
Cons: "Where to start... paid more in bag fees & to get an isle seat for each(4)flights than I did for damn plane ticket! Flights delayed 4hrs another flight in same trip delayed 2 hours. Staff wasn't interactive/friendly I'd say 6/10 were nice. Asked for an isle seat the person helping at counter, said I'd have to pay to upgrade. Seriously- upgrade for isle seat!! I paid to have an isle seat on all 4 flights(I'm a disabled vet who was injured in the line of duty) I need easy access to toilets I'm unable to crawl over people, in turn need idle seat). Paid for isle seat all 4 flights- just to see the flights were super empty, people were sitting where they wanted anyway. Thanks for taking my $ for the seats tho spirit:-|. Staff wasn't that friendly compared to other airlines I've flown on. Not food. No entertainment on flight. Not worth it. If they don't do better business they won't last long I feel. There is potential just needs some work!"

Cons: "Same as above."

Pros: "אני אוצה לקבל זיכוי על כל החודשים שחייבים אותי ב 19.90 ש״ח למרות שכלל לא השתמשתי בכרטיס. מה גם שנאמר לי בשעתו בחנות שאין כלל עלות עבור הכרטיס הנ״ל. כשהתברר לי שיש עלות חודשית( לדעתי זוהי הונאה לשמה)חזרתי לחנות כדי לבטל את הכרטיס ואמרו לי שזה בלתי אפשרי. ניסיתי ליצור קשר עם cal ולא הצלחתי בשעתו. אתמול סוף סוף הצלחתי לבטל את הכרטיס ואודה לכם באם יוחזר לי התשלום החודשי אותו אתם כביתם ממני בחודשים האחרונים. לדעתי מדובר ב 4 חודשים. תודה מראש טובה ברנר ת. ז 042388421"

Cons: "I didn't like the baggage policy. I didn't like the check in policy or the fact that they don't support TSA precheck because they hope to sell you on an additional fee that will get you through a prority lane. I didn't like the seats which are hard plastic, close together, and don't recline. I didn't like the mini tray table that wouldn't support my laptop so I couldn't work. I didn't like that Spirit falsely advertises with the tag line "LESS MONEY, MORE GO" when the base fare for my connecting flight on this sub-par airline was more expensive than a direct flight on a better airline-before the other fees were added."

Pros: "The flight itself was fine, no delays. Crew was friendly."
Cons: "When I booked online I knew that I would be paying for a baggage fee. According to the website it looked like the fee would be $30. I was okay with that as it was still cheaper than flying a different airline. However, when I checked in (also online), the price was now $45 each way - so a $90 difference. The other flight would have been cheaper. For this reason I will probably avoid Spirit in the future."

Pros: "The crew on this flight were friendly, although the Spirit crew on my previous flight were very rude to a woman who was on her way to a funeral when she told them that one in her party had been left at the gate."
Cons: "EVERYTHING cost extra (snack, coffee, water, picking my seat, bringing a carry on, a checked bag over 40 lbs.). The seats didn't recline."

Pros: "Spirit Airlines does an excellent job. They had a full flight to Chicago, and I understand why! Their staff are fun, safe and courteous, glad to help in any situation. The seats were comfortable, and clean. The cabin was clean, and cold. I like cold. I'll fly Spirit every time. Thank you!"
Cons: "Everything was perfect. thank you"

Pros: "Initially the price, but after all the fees, could have flown American for almost the same price."
Cons: "The airline is Vague, I guess if you read all the fine print and get to know the system it may work better."

Pros: "Nothing. There was nothing to like- it was cancelled."
Cons: "The flight was supposed to be at 9:30am- we got a phone call at 4:30am telling us it was cancelled because of weather. I checked both the weather in Minneapolis and Chicago and both were clear and sunny. So of course I called them to ask what was up and was put on the phone with some poor outsourced person who had no idea which way was up and kept repeating everything on his screen despite it making no sense. He offered to put me on the next plane out but that wasn't until the next day. As I was flying up for a wedding this clearly wouldn't work. I then asked to speak to a manager but apparently no manager was available. He ended up refunding me for the flight and telling me a manager would call me back. When the manager called me back it really got interesting. She said the same thing he did "a weather advisory grounded the plane" when pressed on what the weather advisory was she eventually said Winter Storm Celine. IN JULY!! A winter storm advisory for a storm that occurred in late March was apparently grounding my flight in July! Absolutely incredible. After that I just walked away. Took my refund and ran as fast as I could away from that miserable excuse for a company."

Pros: "low fare"
Cons: "check in process was confusing- one airport you had to pre-print, the other you didn't, no cell phone tickets allowed. There are higher fees for carry-ons than checked bags. Didn't like the attitude/marketing at all. I've flown other no-frills carriers but these guys just rubbed me the wrong way!"

Pros: "The tight quarters were challenging for my near 6 ft son. However, because the seats don't recline, he didn't loose any room to the person in front of him."
Cons: "Very few snack choices to purchase for anyone who is gluten-free ."

Cons: "The flight was cancelled in the last minute - For our plans it was a disaster. It was a big demage"

Cons: "Late boarding due to delays from previous flight."

Pros: "The crew was competent, my seat neighbors were friendly."
Cons: "Crammed seats, don't recline. No included beverage (not even water). "No frills" = budget airline. Want to have a carry on ? You'll need to pay for that. I do not recommend Spirit for flights over an hour."

Pros: "Staff was friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Flight was late, boarding info was not updated at terminals."

Cons: "Never fly this airline"

Pros: "Inexpensive ticket prices due to getting rid of many services that I don't use or care for."
Cons: "No reading material related to Spirit airlines. There should be something like a small magazine in the seat back promoting your business for customers to read."

Cons: "I had a connecting flight form San Jose to Chicago in Fort Lauderdale. Both Flights were Spirit. Had around 2 yrs to get from my flight from San Jose to the chocago flight. By the time i went thru customs (huge line) then thru security (another huge line) i got the the gate at 7:38 A. M. My flight was scheduled to leave at 7:42 A.M.. I understand that you do need to close your gates a little earlier, but i was not the only one that had the same itenerary and missed the flight. Its just hard to understand that you must have a record of who is missing on that flight and since you know they are at the airport (because we came in from San Jose on your flight) not to at least wait until 7:42 to close the gates. There was no one at the gate, the gate was closed as we watched the airplane sit there without moving for at least another 10 minutes. Its beyond logic and the only way i can explain that in my mind is that your record of competing with other airlines of being on time is more important to the airline than the customers themselves. Which is very sad. Then i stood in line for one and a half hours just so i can speak to someone on what my next step should be. Do you have any idea how stressful it is to miss your flight and then have to stay in line for another hour and a half in that stress? As i stood there and watched the couple in front of me being in distress and his girlfriend crying i realized how unfriendly Spirit Airlines is ti its cutomers. Then finally i get to the representitve to be told i can get a flight out at 6:15 P.M. That is 10 and half hours later. So i inquired, can we use another airline or even an alternative airport to resolve the long wait, of course i was told no without any explanation. So, i had my office search for a flight for me and they found one for 101.00 to Midway with Southwest Airlines leaving at 10:15 A.M., but since i was in a different terminal and would have to go thru security, i would not make it. Very frustrating to think since your air line is the one that propsed the itenerary for me, would not back me up when i missed the flight with no fault of mine. Afterall, Spirit sold me that Itenerary, they should have been aware that it can take longer than two hours to make it to the next flight. But, what really has me steaming is you could not even have more than one person to help at the counter for the people that missed their flight, because if you DID then i could have had time to book the Southwest flight. Due to your lack of concern about the customers in general my company nor I will ever use your services again. I know that probably doesnt break your heart, but me being in business now for well over 30 years,i can gaurantee you eventually if you do not change your practices, it will affect your bottom line. One last note. I overheard another frustrated customer asking if they will give him any food vouchers, and he was stared down for a few seconds and then a simple "no"."

Pros: "Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "It is absurd to charge 55 bucks for a carry on!! Also ridiculous there is no beverage service"

Pros: "The boarding process was quick and organized both ways."
Cons: "On the flight in to ft. Myers, the flight attendants were all grumpy and unfriendly. The seats are entirely too small - I am an average-sized female and felt very crammed into the seat area. At one point, I dropped something but there wasn't even enough room for me to bend down and get it - I had to kick it over and ask the smaller person next to me to pick it up for me! I thought I would have an anxiety attack in such a small space. I will never fly Spirit again."

Pros: "Hadn't flown Spirit in years, and I was very satisfied with them."

Pros: "Our flight got cancelled about 1 hour after it was supposed to departure, due to mechanical issues. Since Spirit doesn't have many airplanes we were redirected to rebook our flight which would not get us anywhere until Monday morning, if we use Spirit. They did offered flights with other airlines, but of course those were gone fast. I missed a race, asked if they could refund at least part of that fee and was told no. Crew was nice, honest and helpful."
Cons: "The honesty of the crew."

Cons: "I flew in/out of two major cities and was reluctant to fly on Spirit, for good reason. Flight information was difficult to find at airport (Spirit rented a United gate and did not have any listed information on boards) and I relied entirely on my phone to follow flight delays and changes. When flight was cancelled there was no effort accomodate passengers on another airline, despite many flights available, and the next Spirit flight was two days later!!! Spirit offered refunds for that flight but the website did not work for two days and the wait was very long, over 20 minutes, on the phone. The baggage and seat fees add a significant amount to the cost of the ticket so that it is no longer less expensive than a more reliable airline. I will never fly Spirit again."

Pros: "Flight was cancelled 2 hours before departure and it was impossible to buy any other flight to New York on any other airline on that date."
Cons: "Service, attitude."

Pros: "Price"
Cons: "Managed to catch a virus so couldn't travel (doctor's orders). Partial credit was given when I'd much rather just have a refund."

Pros: "very uncomplicated"
Cons: "to little information about baggage restrictions (no carry-on included!)"

Pros: "If you're traveling light, the airfare is great. Only pay for what you need - no food, no luggage, etc."
Cons: ""Read the fine print" is what I was essentially told when I learned I had to pay $50 to check my suitcase. I booked via Kayak - who gives no indication of the several fee options to check luggage, beginning from $30 online at spirit.com and so on. Disliked the service and structure, won't fly Spirit or book through Kayak again."

Cons: "Cancelled my flight at the last second."

Cons: "I was charged an extra $50 to check-in my bag at the counter! Quite mean! I wasn't preinformed!"

Pros: "The flight was good. I wish there had been a little more room but I will definitely fuse Spirit again if the flight is the right price"

Pros: "Seats looked new"
Cons: "The flight was delayed over an hour & half due to 'no landing time in NY'. Totally unrelated to weather or the aircraft. Drinks are available for a fee - even water!"

Pros: "-In general with Spirit you know what you're getting. A cheap flight with only the bare bone necessities to get you where you're going. Generally I'm okay with this approach to save a buck or two but this experience tipped me over the edge of never flying Spirit again."
Cons: "To paint a picture before I get into details, public transit broke down so there was a huge rush of passengers for this flight and others, all leaving around the same time of night as the last round of flights from the airport. -The man at the counter said he could not print our boarding passes because the flight was already boarding as it was 30 minutes before doors closed. -We used the terminal and got an error message saying to see someone at the counter, so we went back and talked to another lady at the Spirit counter. She printed our tickets and was even able to check in my last minute checked bag. -No one at Spirit would walk us through security, which I guess is understandable (though a common courtesy on other airlines) when the security line was so long. -By this time the security line was so long after we had fumbled around for 10 extra minutes with the first man at the Spirit counter that we decided to give up. We later found out that they held the doors for 15 minutes because of the long lines at security, information which no one at Spirit ever volunteered for us, which would've allowed us to get on the plane. -There were 3 or 4 other passengers very upset at the counter employees not willing to print their boarding passes for them who could have also made the plane. -We had to get a flight out the next morning to make our international flight from BWI, so we wanted to go get the checked bag back from Spirit. This was by far the best part of the trip, as the woman at baggage was able to confirm my bag had made it on the flight and would be landing in Philadelphia. -To confirm the bag landed and we would be able to pick it up at 9am when our flight landed the next morning, we called the Spirit office at the Philly airport. The woman said to call back at 12:30-12:45 and she would let us know if she had the bag. This was important for us, because if my bag wasn't there I could just pack another for our international trip and deal with finding the lost bag at a later time. -We called 8 times between 12:30 and 1:30 with no response. We also left several voicemails. -At 5am on our way back to O'Hare we were again unable to get ahold of anyone at Spirit in Philadelphia. While boarding our flight to Philly we finally got a hold of someone who said they would go check the office and let us know within 10 minutes. Obviously too late for me to pack another bag, but at least we could plan over the next several hours. Never got a call back, and only received voice mail after attempting contact again several times as our plane prepared for takeoff. -Landed in Philly and what do you know, the Spirit office is closed for most hours of the day, only operating around their scheduled flights. The info. employee at the airport wished us good luck in a hopeless tone. After 45 minutes of panic calling every Spirit phone number we could find, we finally got someone on the phone to come get my bag out of the locked office."

Pros: "New euipment."
Cons: "Final cost was deceiving."

Pros: "Flight cancelled twice on two separate days. Little compassion by the staff. Waiting room at O'hare was filthy, seats ripped with stuffing hanging outl. The discounted price is not worth the inconsistent and terrible service. Eventually rescheduled with another airline."

Pros: "The crew was nice!"
Cons: "I had NO IDEA bringing the bag as a carryon was an additional $55 each way. I could have bought a ticket on a better airline for cheaper if I had known. Also, no wifi at all (even for sale) and you can't even get a glass of water without paying for it. Then they push the Spirit airlines credit card on you. Tacky. Awful."

Pros: "The trip was good I think they did the Best"

Cons: "I don't like that they allow people with carry-ons larger than the specified sizes. I was careful to follow the guidelines, which were hard to find anyway. I don't like the credit card sales pitch on each flight."
