Cons: "- more communication (any!) about bag status when landed - flight delay due to too many/too heavy baggage. Long delay was said to be due to making sure our baggage would accompany destination. Upon arrival, bag was left in NYC but this wasn't communicated. No info on bag status at airport or via ema"

Cons: "It was late"

Cons: "First class seats were too close together. It was very difficult to get out of you seat into the aisle. Food was not what it should have been for 1st class There was no wall between 1st class and coach giving little privacy when I worked my laptop. it was in direct view of the middle seat in coach"

Cons: "I usually don't fly from JFK. The food court was expensive (18 dollars base price from a burger seems a high even for an airport. I don't fly from NY normally - so maybe I need to tune my expectation for the locale, and it may have NOTHING to do with the airline company."

Cons: "It was delayed"

Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "Chinese Eastern did not try to help and solve my problem."

Pros: "There was a bit of a mixup in boarding the plane but otherwise the flight was good. There was no entertainment system on this short flight. The flight attendants were very pleasant & efficient. They only served snacks on this short flight but were very good at ensuring everyone had at least one or more beverages. The premium seats were very comfortable ."

Cons: "The aircraft is too old, MD-88. I don't know how Delta is flying that type of aircraft. Is very risky"

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

Cons: "Flight cancelled due to weather that was never bad but on the potential of bad weather. Had to scramble so my 18 year old son was not stranded overnight in a strange place and Delta does not help. Only rebooked a flight itinerary for the next day for a 4 hour flight with connections on a 1 hour direct flight. Spent an hour on line to figure out what to do. #neverdelta"

Cons: "Plane was sat broken at gate and needed part to be flown in. 150 minutes delayed. Not acceptable."

Pros: "flight attendants were great."
Cons: "not enough leg room and space. The business class should be at the minimum for economy."

Cons: "I am a 5'3" 125# woman who, unfortunately, had a middle seat assignment. The passenger to my right, on the aisle, weighed approximately 375# and took up 1/3 of my seat. The arm was not able to go down comfortably, and when it did it was not usable . The passenger on my left, window seat, was probably 6'7" and had to sit with a man spread in order to fit. I could not move and was extremely uncomfortable. The plane was overbooked so I was unable to move. Therefore, worst flight ever. Plus, I paid for a full seat and was only able to occupy half of it."

Pros: "The crew was polite and friendly"
Cons: "My second plane had sooo much moisture coming from the cooling system it looked like the passengers were getting gased and I kept getting wet from water condensation falling on me in a window seat as I tried to sleep from having such an early flight to begin with only to be told it's delayed 3 hrs without explanation."

Pros: "We are safe"
Cons: "Late. I am still on the plane. Did not seem to matter we were late."

Pros: "Flight attendants were friendly and in-flight entertainment was good, including easy access to power ports."
Cons: "Delayed about an hour due to weather. However, another 2 hours spent screwing around sitting on the plane after boarding because no one anticipated DCA restrictions. Then on arrival sat another 30 minutes waiting for a gate. Adding insult to injury, took about 40 minutes to get luggage. Weather is understandable, but the rest was just mismanagement."

Pros: "Great service"

Pros: "The boarding process was easy and on flight service was on point."

Cons: "The plane was delayed about 3 hours because of mechanical difficulties. After several hours we were moved to another plane...should have been done way earlier."

Pros: "Almost empty in economy"
Cons: "I liked everything"

Pros: "The airplale MD 80 are old"

Pros: "Friendly crew, comfortable space, good snacks."

Pros: "Once I made it, they worked to get me on the plane from Chicago quickly."
Cons: "I barely made it for my flight in Chicago and that was with running. They were already boarding the other plane when my plane from Hattiesburg landed. Earlier in the day I had to get them to change my flight from Chicago in Hattiesburg because it wasn't changed for me when the delay had my original flight leaving before I was to land in Chicago. I don't fault them for someone getting sick at the last minute or my inconvenience, but it was still inconvenient."

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: "Extra blanket and pillow. Empty seat to sleep in. Fairly clean interior for the most part."

Pros: "Excellent for a short flight. Good entertainment and a smooth ride."

Cons: "Could not read paper when passenger in front reclined seat. No space between rows."

Cons: "Should be allowed one checked bag per person at no charge."

Pros: "Seats were really neither notably comfortable nor notably uncomfortable. I think they were slightly on the comfortable side."
Cons: "Would be nice to have more modern aircraft amenities, like power outlets for device charging, and display screens with at least some complimentary entertainment, or at least flight path tracking. Boarding counter lady was obnoxiously strict about not letting our carry-on bags to be carry-on. She made us test them in the size device and said they were too big, even though they could easy be pushed into the space, and regardless of the fact that we just flew on an American Airlines flight with them as carry-on and were only on a layover with them! Regarding the previous AA agent who let them be carry-on, she said "shame on them." Complete opposite of the positive experience we had with her counterpart in Phoenix. ಠ_ಠ"

Pros: "Timing and transit time was excellent"

Pros: "Everything."
Cons: "Nothing."

Cons: "Food was horribe and no dedicated tv per seat"

Cons: "Always a problem with these guys"

Cons: "Little planes need an interior restoration to make them look better."

Pros: "My favorite part of the flight was our on time departure! :-)"

Pros: "love when they turn off the lights"
Cons: "annoying late notifications of gate changes"

Pros: "The food."

Pros: "Efficient"
Cons: "Free wifi"

Cons: "Was lied to concerning that 23kg of checked in luggage was included, turned out it was not."

Pros: "They smiled, gave a friendly farewell, made sure everyone was hydrated."
Cons: "Don't get an attitude with calm passengers asking for assistance for their seatmates. Sometimes they wouldn't ask me what I wanted to eat or drink, they just assumed I already heard them ask other passengers and just waited for me to answer. It just seems lazy to me."

Cons: "Cabin felt quite warm"

Pros: "Getting a meal and drink"

Pros: "The flight was late and barely made the connecting flight. In the end, my luggage arrived damaged."

Pros: "Everything from ticketing to deplaning was smooth and professional."
Cons: "No problems at all."

Pros: "I like flying Lufthansa for entire trip then changing to united airlines"
Cons: "Particular everything the airline"

Cons: "I missed having the navigation map when traveling such a long distance."

Pros: "On time"

Pros: "Having about an hour and 20 minutes left me with enough time to explore the airport from one gate to the other without feeling terribly rushed."
Cons: "The ONLY thing negative that I can say is that the Chicago airport had no charging stations at my gate."

Pros: "Once the flights took off, everything was just great."
Cons: "The boarding process was awful. There are zones, but they are all boarded simultaneously. What's the point of paying to board early if you don't get the chance. Then, I had to check my bag because the boarding order was a mess. One flight attendant tried to force me to put my bag overhead when I told her I could fit it under the seat. She stressed me out unnecessarily."

Pros: "Friendly"
Cons: "Delayed more..."

Cons: "No bags to go to overhead bin"

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "The food not fit for human consumption"

Pros: "Quick boarding. Ontime departure."
Cons: "Very small servings of food."

Pros: "AlwYs on time"
Cons: "Cramped"

Cons: "We were asked to be at the airport 8hrs ahead of time, so we arrived 3am. United desk workers arrived at 4am."

Pros: "The crew was very polite at every moment"
Cons: "I really liked everything"

Cons: "Had to pay for movies and snacks."

Pros: "Again- nothing"
Cons: "This flight was canceled for me! Why am I being asked how I would rate it?!"

Pros: "Had fun watching free movies on my device, although the connection didn't work for the first leg. The plane was new/upgraded, a ton of legroom on my second leg Airbus."

Pros: "For the basic economy seat there was plenty of room and the staff was excellent. Honestly the best domestic flight I've taken in a long time."

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: "Go"

Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Total disaster due to some snow, excessive delays"

Pros: "temperature was right not blanket needed"
Cons: "they ignore me never offer me a drink and I was thirsty"

Pros: "We'll coordinated."

Cons: "See above comments."

Pros: "Everything went pretty well minus the delayed flight from the start"
Cons: "Some older woman yelling at a teenager for "pushing her in the back of her seat" while in flight"

Cons: "This flight was delayed around 3 hours."

Cons: "Had to check a bag I've carried on several other times."

Cons: "My 3rd old was very hungry and I reached out to cabin staff for any kind of food for purchase, they turned me down saying I need to wait for another hour till the dinner time. Did not provide any help there."

Cons: "Lack of leg room, no TVs, no free wifi"

Cons: "Flight was delayed because one of the flight attendance was late showing up."

Pros: "Flight was on-time."
Cons: "Flight to Washington Dulles was boarding at the same time through the same door as flight to Washington National. Why would you schedule it this way? Plane cabin lighting was mostly burned out so very difficult to see while getting on the plane. Window appeared to be caulked on, exit door handle cover in row behind was falling off causing concern for passenger in exit row. Plane was generally shabby and run down. Flight attendant was reading all announcements which did not inspire confidence in her training. Small regional jet, so seats and leg room were terrible. Made us wait outside in the cold for our hand luggage that was too large for tiny overhead bins while we watched baggage handlers drop several carry-ons from the conveyor belt onto the ground. In addition they lost one of our two bags."

Cons: "The flight was over one hour late departing ORD. We had approximately 15 minutes to make our connection at IAD. While I understand that the delay happened because the copilot was late because of a fender bender, I believe the delay could have been much shorter. Since they had telephone contact with the crew member we could have been boarded before he was on the plane and departed sooner. Also no reasonable explanation was given for the delay other than a crew member was not there."

Cons: "Flight took off early while I was still aboard the inbound connector. I was supposed to be mollified with a boarding pass for 9 hours later and a hotel room. Gee thanks."

Pros: "Kudos to staff during difficult weather"
Cons: "Late notice for cancellation"

Pros: "Was never in Chicago."
Cons: "Was never in Chicago but my stuff was."

Cons: "I was informed today that one of my checked bags was picked up by another customer who eventually realized it was not her bag. She brought it back to the airport and refused to turn over the bag until the airport compensated her. (How this happened I have no idea because I stood right by the entrance of the baggage claim and never saw the bag come out). The customer refused to return the bag until the police became involved at which point she agreed to write a note confirmed she did not steal anything. The bag then needs to be sent to me in 2 days and I'll have to verify myself that indeed nothing was taken from the bag. I'm very concerned how this individual came to be in possession of my bag considering, again, I stood right at the entrance of the baggage claim conveyor belt from the time it started to when it ended. As a result, this experience really made me feel frustrated and violated."

Pros: "Good crew"
Cons: "Bumpy air"

Pros: "The appointment as shape"
Cons: "Small aircraft and noisily to much"

Cons: "The wait for my carry on baggage..."

Pros: "Nice"

Cons: "We waiting 2hours... delay Something to fixing on plane! I miss good business in Tampa because of that"

Pros: "I liked the fact that I can fly red eye."
Cons: "I typically fly Southwest because of the free leg room, free 2 bags checked, and 2 free carry-ons. Frontier "fee's" flyers to death. I have to pay extea for leg room????!!! REALLY! I could see if i was 6'6" but I'm not. If Southwest ever offers red eye flights I'll never patronize Frontier or another airline again."

Cons: "not clean"

Pros: "Bag charged"

Cons: "Short-staffed, so short tempered workers.kiosks did not work. Nickled and dimed on everything. Like flying in prison. No light and a cold hard bench seat. Awful."

Cons: "Departure delay was too long on board"

Pros: "uh the "big front seat" was decent? fairly roomy and still cheap"
Cons: "fuckin screaming children everywhere, it was horrendous"

Cons: "Trip had over 8 hours of delays."

Cons: "Late late late arrival."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Cons: "Delayed flight, only $15 dollars of food too late and not acceptable at restaurants, too long of a delayed flight."

Pros: "Very efficient."
Cons: "No free beverage."

Pros: "This was the first time I have flown Frontier. Even with a checked bag fee ($30 each way), my total fare was still less than half of what it would have been for competitors the same week. The planes were clean, flights were on time, and the crew were extremely friendly and helpful!"
Cons: "There wasn't anything not to like! The experience was seriously better than I imagined it would be."

Pros: "Bot"
Cons: "Had 1- carry on and they charged 45.00 at the gate to check no mention prior"

Pros: "Politeness"
Cons: "Overall everything"

Cons: "to expensive to cary on a bag."

Pros: "Middle seat was empty"
Cons: "The delay. No food. No apologies"

Pros: "The tate"
Cons: "Paying for bags"

Cons: "i hate paying $ 45 for a carry on each way i wasn't aware of it before hand when i booked on line."

Pros: "I was upgraded for free!"
Cons: "The payment necessary for baggage."

Pros: "The whole trip is pretty bad. It is delayed for 5 hours. And no free water on the airplane. You basically has to pay for everything: food, checking luggage, and carryon bags. No entertainment at all. The flight tickets are not cheaper anyway."

Pros: "There wasn't any in flight entertainment and I didn't order food, so that's why my rating is neutral. Our flight back was 30 min early, so that was great."

Cons: "Everything!!"

Pros: "Aircraft"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Easy boarding easy check in"
Cons: "Nothing that bad, chairs are maybe a bit thin but not terribly uncomfortable"

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

Pros: "It was very punctual"

Pros: "Very informative on where to go!"
Cons: "Not very informational on security policy"

Pros: "Snacks & drinks included."
Cons: "The cost of baggage but on the other hand the airline fare was so inexpensive that in reality the trade off was worth it. You must a strategic packer when flying Frontier."

Pros: "Everything was good, no complaints"

Pros: "Staff"

Cons: "The Chicago airport was terrible both times. Things not clearly marked. Staff not friendly or available. Long term parking very hard to find and pricing very unclear. Didn't realize we would have to pay additional for just a seat and carry on luggage"

Pros: "Cheap..."
Cons: "Delaaaays"

Pros: "Everyone was friendly, will fly again soon to San Fran."

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

Cons: "Not to be late"

Pros: "Utilization of Kiosk, check-in, boarding, crew, and pilots. The seats were clean, too. Thank you very much :) !! Flight was also on-time for departure and arrival at destination. * In the Review, put my name as Anonymous. Thank you."
Cons: "Prices for beverages, food, and/or snacks are extremely HIGH! $3 USD for a 12 oz. can of pop OR WATER (16-20 oz) ? ! ! $7 USD for a 5-6 oz bottle of wine ?! The prices are ridiculous!! You can't get water to cry with or if you were on fire. Upon viewing your menu, there is a "bundle" for three or more items. This IS NOT a bargain. You decrease the price by a dollar is nothing. It appears to be overly enrichment and a rip-off. I know that you're in business to make a profit. But dayumm!! REALLY??! You all are certainly taking advantage of your customers. There may be either a continued decrease of purchases or none at all. I noticed that there weren't many purchases in relation to the number of passengers on board at the time. BTW, the price paid for the single bottle of wine ($7 USD) is what it costs for the 4-pack, if not less. A person can purchase 750 ml or 1/5 gallon for the same amount or less (i.e., $5 USD + tax). This is wrong and obliges passenger to make a grudging purchase out of necessity. Have you ever been thirsty before? Can't have water to take medications without spending large amount of money. You can't even get tap water or courtesy cup of water / ice. What type of mess is this? $50+ bag check fee is horrendous!! Your competitors are much cheaper. Please add more cushion and room to your seats. Had this flight been more than 90 mins., I'd be making a trip to the hospital instead of home."

Cons: "I cancelled my trip with Spirit when I found out that I had to pay more money for a seat and I could not purchase the seat at time of purchase. Think Spirit airlines is a scam I will never use them a again or you when I do not know the total cost of purchase and the total cost of purchase is over a 2 day process."

Cons: "Both my flights were cancelled. Missed my uncles funeral. Asked for a refund."

Pros: "I had to cancel my flight because I did not want to miss my daughters baptism. I did not know the date of her baptism when I booked the flight. When I I tried to change the flight it would have cost twice as much. I’ve always loved flying with Spirit. Until this time. When I asked if I could get a travel voucher for a future date I was told it was a promotion so I could only get a $10 credit even though the price I paid was $120. I’m so sad."

Cons: "Flight attendants are rude"

Pros: "I really liked"

Pros: "The spirit employees at our gate in O hare airport were exceptional. We had weather delays and they encouraged me to check in periodically. They were friendly and nice despite there being three flights of customers at our gate. I did not see them get any break because there were so many distressed customers needing attention"

Cons: "Did not like quality of the plane too small seats and not too clean either"

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

Cons: "Flight was over 2 hours late."

Cons: "Pilot said we were waiting because the proper paperwork on the plane had not been submitted the night before. Assured us it was not a mechanical issue but a clerical issue. I have never had a flight delayed for this reason it cannot be a new procedure and it sounds like poor planning."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Rude"

Cons: "The flight was delayed twice with no explaination"

Cons: "Have to pay fir snacks and drinks"

Pros: "Weather caused flight delays for several inbound flights and Spirit handled gate changes customer services flawlessly."

Pros: "We were off the plane and out of the door incredibly quick"

Pros: "Price"
Cons: "2 out of 4 flights had boarding delays."

Cons: "Same as above."

Cons: "I would like for someone to call me as soon as possible. Thank you"

Pros: "Boarding was easy. Not many people on the flight.. Crew seemed pleasant and competent."
Cons: "The turbulence.....as always."

Pros: "Non stop between Baltimore and Chicago was the only positive thing."
Cons: "When you do check in you realize that they charge $90 round trip for the second hand bag and $80 for the first checked luggage. I was happy thinking I got a great price, after that I realized I paid over $150 more per ticket than any other airline, the naked price slogan is a scam. None of the seats reclined in the whole airplane and they were very uncomfortable and looked very cheap. They don't even give you soda and chips, not even water, crew were nice but ticketing staff in Chicago was unpleasant. I will never fly spirit again, don't waste your money like I did."

Pros: "Nothing. Won't fly again."

Pros: "Overall good"
Cons: "Paying for a bag, can't put the seat back it is always in the upright position, very cramped seats."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "I liked the fact that they didn't cancel flights to Washington DC when United Airlines did. We were happy they still had room on their flight..but were delayed because a flight attendant didn't show up for work and we had to wait until a replacement could be found."
Cons: "The $50+ we paid to put a bag in the overhead bin ... really? Dozens of people put things up in there that hadn't paid the fee because nobody checked. I feel ripped off."

Pros: "My bag came out really fast. Boarding on and off was a breeze."
Cons: "Paying for baggage when I could have just carried on."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I was trying to save money for the church , but it cost me more then I had budget for"

Cons: "Hidden fee"

Cons: "Check in staff was very unprofessional. 3 delays!"

Cons: "No announcement that the gate changed. Seats don't recline . Little room that I couldn't even rest my head on my tray table"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything was bad, nothing is free with them"

Pros: "Everything went as scheduled. Friendly staff at airport and on board. I have never had a problem flying Spirit airlines."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Everything"

Cons: "The plane was delayed."

Pros: "This is not responsible airlines don't use it"

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Original flight was scheduled for 9:30pm departure. Was delayed to 10:48pm, then to 1:16am, then to 2:38am, and finally to cancelled. Not only did we get strung along with delay after delay, only for the flight to get cancelled at 2am in the morning. The "best" option they could offer was getting me to my final destination a day and a half late, with multiple connections."

Cons: "My flight was delayed the entire day until the very last minute which almost caused me to miss my flight. Spirit airlines is the worst airlines I have ever flown on. I will never flight Spirit again."

Cons: "We asked for consideration for credit. Called their help number and got an Indian female agent who proceeded to stall us for 45 minutes on the phone when we asked to speak to a manager. Was putting us on hold and got back every 2 minutes with a variety of excuses. NEVER WILL WE BOOK A FLIGHT ON THIS AIRLINE AGAIN."

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Everyone was polite and efficient"
Cons: "It was chaotic at the airport, O'Hare. It was not clear to obtain boarding pass prior to getting bag checked in."

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "everything"

Cons: "After 4-5 delayed emails - about just 2 hours before the flight - they emailed that it was cancelled. Not only that I finally called and they said that the next available flight was the next day at 9:30pm. I had my nieces first bday party and they were telling me there was nothing they could do. They dont take care of their passengers and I will never fly with them again."

Cons: "My flight got cancelled, there was nothing else available, your customer service took 6 calls to get a human. This is my first time flying spirit and still ended up just paying for more reliable Delta."

Cons: "Service"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The plane broke and the jet bridge was broken. We were delayed 2 hrs"

Pros: "Reshedule"
Cons: "Poor services"

Pros: "The crew is fine. They do the best with what they have to work with."
Cons: "No complimentary drink. The baggage pricing is outrageous."

Pros: "Staff was friendly"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Luckily sitting by good people"
Cons: "Beer was warm and $7"
