Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Delta is always a step above the rest."
Cons: "Overall not bad. Food service can be better but it is due to the pandemic currently. Overall excellent flight!"
Cons: "The Delta flight leaving Cleveland was a hour and a half late so we could not make our connection to get home and had to overnight in Minneapolis. This is the fourth time in six flights For Delta. I think the Kayak booking algorithm needs to allow more time between connecting flights."
Pros: "Quick boarding and great with accommodating my request for a window seat."
Cons: "Offer in flight entertainment."
Pros: "The crew was amazing this round I got good seats"
Cons: "Forgot my earphones so I had to read a book. I never asked nor did I see earphones"
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "When all overhead bins were full, they should have allowed those who didn’t need to check their carry on to board the plane before those who needed to check their carry on. Very unorganized at gate."
Pros: "The ceew"
Cons: "Unorganized boarding and 6 hour delay from expected departure time."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and our luggage is lost"
Pros: "We eventually got there"
Cons: "In Cleveland, the doors remained opened for about 30 minutes after they were supposed to close, and 6-7 people boarded. We then arrived in ATL quite a bit after we were scheduled to land."
Pros: "I did get home eventually"
Cons: "Flight was delayed. Seats are cramped."
Pros: "Flight crew was excellent. We had the emergency exit row so leg room was awesome! Kind bar and soda we good."
Cons: "Flight delay due to the older aircraft and lack of a pilot that knew how to fly it. Bathroom needed some tending to"
Pros: "Equipment felt a bit dated. No entertainment system, which was fine with me. Skipped the offered snack. Just had water. Flight was onntime."
Pros: "Delta Comfort Plus for the win! Great seats with plenty of legroom and room for carry ons. Friendly flight attendants"
Cons: "I was delayed over 2 hours"
Pros: "The crew were fantastic and tried their best the delay."
Cons: "Delayed flight. 2 hours delay. Had to rebook a connecting flight and hence was very tight to board the next flight"
Pros: "Flight was good. Left on time. Crew was attentive."
Cons: "Did not assign seat at check in. Had to go to gate and check in. Staff handled it well, but it was inefficient. Wasted time dealing with it."
Pros: "Efficient on board crew"
Cons: "Ground crew caused delay for unknown reason"
Pros: "The crew is always wonderful. The complimentary beverage and snack really makes the flight better, even in the tiny seats. The flights with tv screens and charging ports are great, although they only seem to be on my shorter of the two connecting flights."
Cons: "Crew allows the first zones to place both their carryon and personal items in overhead storage, filling the bins before many travelers board the plane. We are then asked to check our bag, and are forced to put our 1 bag between our legs, whole many people stored two overhead. Flight was delayed a few minutes and time was not made up in air. Delta changed a few of our flights before we were even off the plane, while other passengers were allowed to keep their original flight (originally we all had the same connecting flight). Looks to me like they overbooked and pulled some of us randomly. Also, my checked bag was sent on wrong plane, and sat unattended at next airport for 2 hours."
Pros: "everiding si so good thanks this is my 2nd time lovet"
Cons: "so organais tritment so good everiding lovet"
Pros: "i fell asleep until we arrive to STL."
Pros: "Despite small aircraft, boarding was fast and easy. On time departure and arrival. And quite clean aircraft despite a very fast turnaround. And Biscoff!!!! Delta's free wifi for messaging is a nice touch, as is free in-flight video. In-flight music would be nice, too. Doesn't hurt to ask :)"
Pros: "We were treated very well and it was a short, sweet flight. Nothing to complain about."
Pros: "Seats are comfortable. These short haul flights often have worn out, painful seats."
Cons: "They do a bad job of screening people with bags too large for the overhead bins and then those people have to check one they have already tried to board and it slow things down."
Pros: "Delta was so accommodating"
Pros: "- usb abd 110v charging ports on the seat backs - in-flight entertainment system for all passengers - comfy seats and adequate legroom in basic econ."
Cons: "- zone 1-5 boarding does not make for good logic - should board all window seat passengers first, then all middle seaters, and finally all aisle sear passengers"
Pros: "I liked that Delta gave me quick alternative flights and was able to switch at no charge to another flight using their app. I was traveling with my 12 year son and they were accommodating in seating us together."
Cons: "The hassle and the fact that we had to run to catch the new flight."
Pros: "I got to destination. Baggage claim was quick."
Cons: "Flight was delayed due to waiting for a tardy flight attendant. Landing felt a little hard. No announcement about baggage carousel prior to disembarking."
Pros: "Hey, they let us off the plane."
Cons: "The plane had just come in & problem was detected. Does it really take an hour to get the log book recorded?"
Pros: "Delta is a mess to check in. Check in on line, print boarding passes then stand for an hour to get bag checked, in Cleveland an. urn ind almost as long in Austin. Terrible"
Pros: "It was on time."
Cons: "The plane was dirty and there was a lot of trash around my seat."
Pros: "For a short-haul flight on a small CRJ, it was the most pleasing and comfortable flight. No delays and everyone was pleasant from ground staff to flight crew."
Pros: "Hard to like anything with this delay -- missed 3 appointments in Raleigh."
Cons: "If you have to swap out planes, do it at night, not the morning of the flight! And tell the customers in advance, so they can get some sleep instead of hurrying to the airport for an "on time" flight that couldn't be flown because of an equipment problem."
Cons: "Economy seating was cramped and painful. I sat in a window seat and couldn't hardly move freely enough to get my seatbelt on; and I am a petite female!!"
Pros: "Great (seemed like unusually friendly and helpful) crew. Plenty of carry on baggage room."
Cons: "Seats didn't recline. Plane hot initially and couldn't be cooled down until airborne."
Pros: "Did not eat or use entertainment."
Cons: "the seats are WAY TOO SMALL"
Pros: "Our original flight delayed and then cancelled and the need help kiosk was quick to provide an alternative. Better aircraft and good flight compared with the original flight"
Cons: "The replacement flight has been delayed almost 2:30 hours due to bad weather in NYC."
Pros: "Flight attendant was very nice."
Cons: "My 6 pm flight left at 8:19. Debris wasn't cleaned from plane between flights. Want some French fries? Lady had two barking dogs in first class. I was in first class. It wasn't worth the extra money we paid to be in first class."
Pros: "Everything was smooth. Short flight, but they offered us refills on drinks, which I've never experienced before. Polite staff, great flight. Thanks!"
Pros: "Excellent flight. Nice new aircraft."
Pros: "Great service. On time flight."
Cons: "I reserved my ticket through Kayak.com. They auto populated my name and added my maiden name. Because that did not match my passport I was charged $50 at the counter to make the name change. Additionally this took a very long time and we almost missed our flight. I am currently fighting with the airline to get reimbursed."
Pros: "Crew service was excellent"
Cons: "Poor leg space"
Pros: "On time, nice crew."
Cons: "Delayed flight for 6 hrs. and acts like it is just business as usual, perhaps it is for Delta"
Cons: "The flight was very bumpy and didn't have the option to watch a movie."
Pros: "The cookies!!!"
Cons: "To cold on plane"
Pros: "The flight was on time. I got lucky and was seated with extra legroom and was very very grateful. No drama - nice and easy."
Cons: "When we were checking in I wasn’t sure where to lineup to put my luggage in. The lines for the kiosks were also confusing. Some more direction that I think would be helpful at Philadelphia airport."
Cons: "My eyes were watering and my nose was itchy for the entire flight and I had to hold back sneezes and I think there was something in the air on the plane that was causing this to happen. I was double-masking and I do not have allergies. I wonder if it had to do with the chemicals used to disinfect the plane between flights? I was not very comfortable, to say the least. Everything else was great, though, but I don’t think I will be flying again anytime soon."
Pros: "A crew member saw me struggling to walk and offered a wheelchair, explained to me that I would be met with one throughout my trip. Her name was Donna!! Problem occurred when we got to Dallas."
Cons: "Instead of circling in the sky, they could have had the pilot take the alternate route he eventually took anyway, in the first place. My family and I still don’t know if we’re going to get a flight to El Paso/ stand by. So much 4 seeing my armyson before he deploys, recipient time waisted over bad decisions on to of everything else, entitled woman on the plane insults me on the lane for no reason. The crew was amazing though."
Pros: "Gate attendant was a superstar."
Cons: "6 hour delay due to part that St. Louis sent for - twice. Will never fly through ST Louis again on AA. Terrible Domino's pizza and water were complimentary after 4 hours delay. Returned to gate twice. 11 a.m. flight arrived at 9:30 PM ( 3 hr flight). Poor gate attendant was left to fend for herself as she was fed false and contradictory information."
Pros: "If I could choose my seat"
Cons: "The attendants attitude."
Pros: "Gate side crew was amazing in providing repeated delay updates."
Cons: "6:34 flight was delayed until 1:00 am due to not having a pilot. No weather issues just no pilot, poor staffing. Unacceptable."
Pros: "Great airplane. Enjoy the 2 seat rows."
Pros: "The friendly informative team when we learned our plane broke. I switched to Charlotte connection earlier as a Miami one made no sense as Miami is south of Atlanta final destination. We had a different outcome than expected yet staff cared for us."
Cons: "Plane better maintained as before take off a hydraulic part broke and we were grounded . We arrived home hours later than planned because of this."
Pros: "My bag was lost!!!"
Cons: "To have my bag delivered"
Cons: "Delayed three hours with no communication or compensation. Poor customer service"
Cons: "On time"
Pros: "Arrived early. Friendly pilot."
Cons: "Attendant did not offer snack choice."
Cons: "Departing on time...30 minutes late."
Pros: "Very professional and timely. My last six flights with American have been without a hitch and right on time. If I were a business traveler, which I am not, American Airlines would be my go to carrier. Quite satisfied with this airline and have been for a long time. Thanks!"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "I just don’t understand how a flight can be delayed three hours from weather the day before. And, of course, we arrived and there was no gate for us. They had three hours to have a gate ready for us. AA fail!"
Pros: "Service was good"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Nice leg room in exit row"
Cons: "My travel companion and I encountered the most unfriendly and non respondent flight crew of all time."
Cons: "Supposed to leave saturday, but didnt cause the lady at airlines said i need a visa when i did not need a visa.now its tuesday in austrailia and im stuck in airport because quantos doest know where my bags are. This trip is turning or turned into a total disaster!"
Cons: "6 hour mechanical delay"
Pros: "Standard AA domestic flight. Once we were boarded and underway, things were fine. Crew was friendly, the aircraft was cleaned on the turn from the prior flight, and we didn't sit on the tarmac too long when arriving at DFW. Normal operations for AA domestic."
Cons: "Unfortunately, normal operations for AA domestic means boarding 20-30 minutes late, which delayed the arrival a bit. In general, AA could provide more accurate updates and boarding information for their flights. For example, if the inbound aircraft arrives at the time my flight should be boarding, I want to see an updated departure time, rather than maintaining the "on time" status right up until five minutes before the new boarding time. Generally it takes 25-30 minutes to turn the plane for the next outbound flight."
Pros: "Good smooth flight and quick"
Cons: "I left my iPad in the seat pocket and they said they didn’t find it!"
Cons: "I’m not sure how this flight was as I missed it due to a delay from YYZ to ORD"
Pros: "My connecting flight from london arrived late and the crew made sure i made it onto the flight to stl even though I barely made it to the gate on time."
Pros: "Crew was nicw"
Pros: "crew was pleasant"
Pros: "My flight was fine - I paid for a Premium Seat, which also allowed me a premium boarding position, which I highly recommend for anyone flying. The seat was comfortable, the staff was very friendly and I really liked the in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "At the DFW security post for my gate, there was NO TSA-pre. That service stops at 7pm. I would think at a major airport like DFW where American Airlines has a hub, they would make sure to staff that longer. Just getting to keep my shoes on, while having to drag all my electronics and liquids out, take my coat and belt off, etc. is not acceptable. AA should put the pressure on DFW to treat their customers better!"
Pros: "Flight crew very friendly."
Cons: "Everything was as expected. 1 star on entertainment as there was none. Would have liked to have been able to get 3 seats together without extra charges."
Cons: "It was nice. And boarding was good too."
Cons: "Plane was dirty and crew inattentive."
Pros: "Short flight, nothing much to say."
Pros: "This flight is the normal nonstop from Mia to StL. The seating is tight but not completely uncomfortable."
Cons: "I just had knee replacement 4 1/2 months ago. It was difficult to fully extend my leg under the seat in front of me because the space between rows has shrunk to include more seating."
Cons: "the fly got delayed for more than 3 hours."
Cons: "There was just an announcement that the refreshments will be served shortly but there were no refreshments. Take off and landing was horrible. Flight was shaking way more than usual."
Pros: "It was easy to travel"
Pros: "The gate agent was having a bad night because she did not get a break. I am platinum pro and would not upgrade me because she said I was not on the list but she put 2 people in first who were not even advantage members"
Pros: "This was the same crew and pilot from the flight I took to LAX. His landing was so smooth, I woke up pleasantly upon landing!"
Pros: "Why would a jet this size wobble all the way across the Atlantic! The pretzels were even stale, and they served a "pizza" that was a stale mini loaf with sauce and a little mozzarella. People were starving when breakfast was served. The thermostat fluctuated from horribly hot to freeing - for 14 hrs. The crew slammed things down on table trays, grumped, were giving harsh orders to patrons rather than gently directing them. These ladies do not enjoy their job. I am done with Delta. We were also an hour late taking off due to a door on a cargo hold not closing. I was embarrassed that our Aussie friends experienced this as their first American flight."
Cons: "Food, attitude of flight attendants, comfort of cabin. Pilot took charge of thermostat issue and kept us informed in a friendly manner regarding the status of our take off and flight progress."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Boarding numbers"
Cons: "I nearly missed my flight because I did not have a seat for a flight that I bought a ticket for at full price. Which, would lead one to believe that I would have a seat on said flight. However, coming to the gate an hour before boarding the personnel working gate the said he was having computer difficulties and could not get me a seat and it would be 10 min. I continued to return till boarding to find out I had no seat and I was on standby. Upon going to customer service they replied the airline oversold tickets and every airline does this as if to make this practice ok. Well being in sales myself and if I were to sell x amount of product to one customer ( or several) I better make sure I have it all there to deliver. People rely on you schedule wise. It nearly shot a meeting I had to make in the foot. Very disappointed with the airline and the way things were handled."
Cons: "I selected an aisle seat because I have very bad anxiety and when I got there to print off my ticket I was assigned a middle seat. It was very uncomfortable"
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic, with people sitting in wrong seats and walking the wrong way down the plane. Crew were not especially friendly. I know it was at the tail end of a long Sunday, but it wasn't impressive."
Pros: "Entertainment, 110 plugins for devices, internet."
Cons: "only free meal option was cinnamon cookies."
Pros: "The ginger ale."
Cons: "This was my return trip with more delays due to maintenance issues of the aircraft. 10/17/16 flight 1585 was the outgoing flight delayed five hours on my departing trip. I waited at the baggage carousel 15 minutes for my bag after over an hour delay due to switching aircrafts. With a flight arriving this late in the evening with the low volume of bags checked (due to checked luggage charges), this should not be the case. Five minutes to gulp down ginger ale."
Pros: "On time, arrived early."
Cons: "Seats too close in front of you."
Cons: "Attempted to make my connection which was in another terminal. Could not get onboard as they shut the doors. My rerouted flight was in a different terminal. Overall a very disappointing travel experience."
Pros: "It took off on time and life was good."
Pros: "The plane has improved greatly with their comfort and leg space"
Cons: "With checking my luggage my bag fee was waived a total of seven times this trip because I'm a military wife to see my husband overseas who is serving a year in Saudi Arabi except this past time on October 2nd at DCA airport. Spoke with the Supervisor Ralph who stated it was against policy. How stringent is this policy if it was waived seven times previously? Policy needs to be reviewed with entire staff. I will no longer use American Airlines because their military convenience and policies no longer seem to favor the military. My husband also after speaking with him will also no longer use your airline including all his members he overseas when they return after their year tour."
Pros: "The people"
Cons: "The seats are too small I'm 6'1 and that's not that tall"
"The black flight attendant with braids is way out of line. She basically assaulted me by running into me like 3 times on purpose after I asked nicely to be moved due the large man in my isle. She told me no, the plane was empty So this should not have been an issue. She also started an issue with another passenger in a racist manner… also just a tip when a flight is empty spread people out a little bit specially during a pandemic. I will never fly frontier nor recommend it again because of that woman."
"Cleveland airport had very few travelers compared to Orlando. 10 minute delay but I felt like we were on schedule. Peanuts/pretzels and water for free would be nice:)"
Pros: "Very efficient."
Cons: "When diverting around storms, let us know more flight time is involved. Not a peep from the crew."
Pros: "The crew they were awesome"
Cons: "All was good"
Pros: "Crew was wonderful."
Cons: "Seat was not comfortable for me but I have a bad back so not that it would affect others the same."
Pros: "The crew was excellent"
Pros: "Boarding back to front makes so much sense! Thanks!"
Pros: "I paid extra for a legroom seat on one of their newer planes. The plane was full so it still seemed very crowded in these COVID days."
Cons: "The people next to me ate a lot of food throughout the flight which required taking off the mask and discussing the food. It felt impossible to social distance more than 2 inches."
Cons: "There was no social distance on the plane. Every seat around me full. Not good."
Pros: "Though I was the first to web check in, we were not assigned seats together. The cabin crew were kind enough to arrange seats together on board."
Pros: "The flight itself was a nice flight. The captain and first officer were communicative and the few times we experienced turbulence I felt like they immediately tried to minimize it. I had a good amount of room in my seat (I was not in an emergency exit row) and I had no problems with my luggage."
Cons: "There was a 2 hour delay to take off. When your flight is at 7am and you've woken up at 3:30 or 4 to get to the airport on time, it's a bit frustrating to wait an extra 2 hours to leave. The gate agents were woefully uninformed and when they did communicate with passengers it was vague and unhelpful. The gate agents kept referring to the need for "maintenance" on the aircraft. It doesn't inspire a great deal of confidence in the soundness of the plane to hear that the maintenance crew is trying to "fix something in the cockpit." The Departures monitors and my Kayak app were giving me delay updates before the gate agents were. At one point we switched gates (it was the gate directly across from the original gate) and I watched as passengers at one gate literally traded places with passengers at another gate because the flights had swapped gates. It was comical. Overall, just a disorganized, uninformative, frustrating mess."
Cons: "The fact i got stranded."
Cons: "I booked a flight with them for the Thanksgiving holiday.... I was supposed to travel Wednesday 22 - Saturday to STLand back... I was IMMEDIATELY shocked by only being able to carry 1 personal item... When I found out exactly how small 45 centimeters was...I tried to cancel the trip & be refunded within 5-6 hours.... They told me to fill out a form & return it to them... THEY WERE SUPPOSED TO GET BACK TO ME WITHIN HOURS TO NOTIFY OF THE REFUND AMOUNT & NOT...I REPEAT NOT ACTUALLY CANCEL THE TRIP UNLESS I AGREED TO THE REFUND AMOUNT... I never heard anything from them! I just assumed it was just taking forever for them to approve my refund... Therefore...assuming that the flight was still booked...SINCE I never APPROVED ANY REFUND... I visited kiwi.com several times before the the trip & there was ABSOLUTELY NOTHING informing me of any trip cancellation... I went to the airport... Wasn’t able to board... Talked to kiwi.on the phone... Didn’t find out the trip was canceled until after the boarding was closed for that flight. Ceddrick Jonae firstname.lastname@example.org 415-322-9515 kiwi.com booking number: 4709776 Reservation number (PNR): MEUOOZ E-ticket: 984-7069682518"
Cons: "The crew gave people who were trying to sit together as a family a hard time. They had to wait over an hour into the flight to move one row. We left a little late."
Cons: "We found out when we arrived at the airport, that the flight departure was delayed from 5:30 pm to 8:30 pm. Ouch. At 8:30 pm we departed. 2 hours into a 3-hour flight I happened to look out the window and noticed that I could see city lights, shopping centers, streets w/ lights and cars on the streets on both sides of the airplane.. we were not at 35,000ft but maybe 5,000ft. I was also aware that they were flying slower than the usual 400 +/-. My guess was we were only flying at 250 +/-. This flight mode continued the rest of the way into our destination airport. As we were taxiing into our assigned gate the flight crew came on over the intercom and announced that they were a little late and that there were 8 passengers who only had 10 minutes to make their connecting flight and asked that everyone on the plane please let these people go first on deplaning. OK, no problem. We stopped at the gate, turned off the engines, the 8 people got up and moved to the front of the plane, then they didn't open the door for almost 8 minutes. My wife and I will not be flying Frontier much in the future."
Cons: "The tickets look like a deal until they charge for every other thing. The information regarding what bag can be carried on without a fee is very confusing. We paid and then saw people rolling cases and putting them in the overhead bin. The seat prices are ridiculous so you don't want to pay for a seat they will assign you for free, I was then told I had to go to the gate to get a seat assignment even though I had already purchased a ticket. I waited for almost an hour before someone showed up. I was told the only seats left were the exit rows. Luckily I am healthy. If I have paid for a ticket Frontier should guarantee me a seat. We had to wait in line even though we had already paid for our bags and some of us went on line and checked in and had boarding passes. Where is the short cut then?? It was so convoluted we will never fly Frontier again. Too much work, let me pay for the ticket and let me have a bag and give me a seat for crying out loud. The flight crew was great. Very nice."
Cons: "They gave our captain to an Atlanta flight. We had to wait for another captain to get to DIA. Then we got loaded up and had to wait for the east gate to open, then they had to map out another plan I.e., the northeast gate (and that didn't materialize) soooo we sat on the plane until we receive the okay to depart on "the east gate". Which was approximately 21:30. We finally arrived at approximately 01:00 a little more than hour late. It took better than 30 minutes for us to get our luggage. Stupid crazy that a person is paying ridiculous prices for pitiful customer service."
Pros: "Kindness and consideration and the understanding of their staff."
Cons: "Have to pay so much for luggage thought I was really getting a great deal but really was the same as the other airlines give or take."
Pros: "The landing was good."
Cons: "$40 for a carry on? Come on now. $5 seat upcharge because "window seat"? Chairs that don't recline? You interrupt my already terrible nap so you can try to sell the entire plane your "no-black-outs" Mastercard. The cabin was much too hot, people complained and nothing was done -- adding insult to injury, water costs money. Every aspect of buying a ticket is littered with popups to upsell you to something "better" or more "exclusive". The entire experience from buying a ticket to touch-down was dehumanizing and an insult my intelligence."
Pros: "No frills on a Frontier flight. The crew was generally update and smiled."
Cons: "Frontier's fees and policy regarding having to pay for everything really puts me off this airline. Why charge me $100 for the flight if I have to buy a seat as well? just charge me $109 or whatever. Additionally, charging people for things you get one other airlines for free (a cup full of soda is $3? Really?) is insulting. The plane itself shook the ENTIRE ride something that I have never experienced in my 20+ years of traveling. Maybe time to invest some of that soda money into your planes huh?"
Pros: "I really did not feel any more crowded or uncomfortable than any other airplane Ive been on. I sort of like that the tray tables are the size of a large cell phone- less bulky than regular tray tables."
Cons: "The crew wasn't bad, just seemed unhappy to be there. There was some confusion with which gate we should be at, changed us three times before settling on the original gate. Boarding was no problem but then we waited without taking off for over 45 minutes. The pilot came over the intercom and informed us that he had no idea why we were delayed to take off, but that he would "find shortcuts" to get us there on time. The biggest gripe that we have is once we landed and went to baggage, several of us waited for golf clubs for close to an hour before a worker realized "they forgot" to turn on the button to allow oversized items to come out. Then she said "sorry I was busy with ticketing and Frontier doesn't have a baggage attendant". I just dont think the extra savings was quite worth the frustration."
Pros: "The flight was on time."
Cons: "The crew people at the Frontier check-in desk were very unhelpful and rude. We missed our flight because we arrived at the counter to check our bags past the cutoff time to be checked in by 1 minute (due to long lines). That was partially our fault but the representative who was helping us did absolutely nothing to help us problem solve and seemed almost pleased to tell us that she couldn't take our bags. I rarely see such bad customer service. I have heard that Frontier pays their staff very poorly compared to other airlines and I assume this is why the customer service reps are so jaded."
Pros: "The staff were the only saving grace."
Cons: "There should be a place to mark horrifying. It always appears that Frontier is the least expensive until you get hit with all the little charges. We paid an extra 18$ each to choose seats, bad ones, and then the seat next to me is filled by someone who choose not to pay. Some folks paid $30 for a carry on and others just lugged uge free bags on. The flights are always delayed and the plane was filthy. I know there was no time for staff to do there short cleaning routine, this was not from a single flight,looked like floors and seat have NEVER been cleaned. UGH"
Pros: "I was very surprised at all of the small things and extra charges that you had for the flight. For example, even just paying for a soda on board I thought was a little overboard. And then once my flight was canceled they were of no help on rescheduling my flight and were not able to find another frontier flight for four more days. Myself and others were left to reschedule our own flights without any repayment of the difference in ticket price. I will not fly this airline again I caution everyone else at the lack of customer support and professionalism ."
Pros: "The staff is friendly, but that doesn't come close to making up for everything else."
Cons: "Extra cost for EVERYTHING. $45 each way for my small bag to put in the overhead?! Really?! There's an additional $90 on my round trip right there. The staff was really nice and friendly, but they came around offering drinks and I asked for a black coffee. They said it will be $2.99. Really? You can't afford to provide a coffee to your customers? I was in row 36 and there was MASS confusion as to which seats were in which row. The labels are not directly above the seats, so 15 to 20 people had to move around to get it right. The boarding zones make no sense either. I was in zone 1 and was in the isle seat. Shouldn't the zones load all window seats first, then center, then isle? Common sense has gone out the window. Won't be flying frontier again."
Pros: "Frontier has constant hidden charges. I flew to my destination using my Frontier phone app and when I went to fly back I was not able to submit on Frontier's boarding pass on my phone Frontier phone app. I had to use a computer which caused me to delay my boarding pass and the reason Frontier did not let me get my boarding pass on the phone app as Frontier wanted me to choose a seat and charge additional charges. I did not accept this choice and let Frontier choose my seat for no cost. Frontier needs to change to access your boarding pass on their phone app. I could see the boarding pass on the app after I went into a regular computer and kept saying "NO" to additional cost of baggage and seating cost. The Frontier airlines seats do not recline and are hard plastic seats and not comfortable. (I only weight 125 lbs) Also, during the flight I had to hear the commercial of Frontier credit card commercials over the loud speaker. I wanted to sleep not listen to commercials of their credit card. They charge for all food and drinks except water which is fine since it was only a 2 hour flight."
Cons: "We were at check in in plenty of time, but because there was only one person checkin us all in, we were almost late. The poor person checking us all in was under a great deal of pressure and went so far as to blame us for. To getting there in time. Frontier needs. Ore than one person checking in people. Also, your Everything-as-cheap-as-we-can -make-it policy is evident in seating, tray tables, well, in everything. I still can't believe you nickel and dime everyone with everything. Carry-on REALLY? And lastly, we had to wait for our luggage for over 1/2 hour! I will say the flight attendants were very polite and helpful. I'm sorry they have to work for you. Never again, Frontier!"
Cons: "I understand that a lot of flights are charging for snacks and drinks these days and calling it a la carte (to make it sound fancy enough to justify the expense), but it is ridiculous to be expected to pay $3 for a bag of pretzels or a soda on a flight. Hiding that cost in the price of the ticket gives a MUCH better impression than being on the flight and waiting for the long-standing cherished ritual of accepting your meager snack, only to find that you have to pay $6 for it. Between this and the overall discomfort of the seats (they didn't recline, so I couldn't nap), the lack of in-flight magazine (if I can't nap, can't I at least pass the time with a crossword?), the carry-on fee, and the fact that the flight crew reminded us four or five times that they were also the clean-up crew so we should help them out by not littering, it was the most uncomfortable of any flight I have ever taken."
Pros: "FRONTIER MOVED OUR FLIGHT A FULL DAY NO PHONE CALLS LIKE OTHER AIRLINES DO HAD TO CANCEL ENTIRE VACATION MISSED 40 YEAR SCHOOL REUNION"
Pros: "Flight was still comfortable, considering we had to fly over a lighting storm."
Cons: "the price for the trip does not include that you have to pay for Carry-on, and seat assignment, which is an odd expense to passengers. Especially for shorter trips with the round trip the carry on charge would equal up to at least $60. Which would equal to another airline who is comparatively better especially because those airlines aren't worrying about charging the customers for every single thing. So even though I comparison shop for my ticket, by the time I paid for these additional fees, I could have purchased a ticket from another airline for less money."
Cons: "I am never flying Frontier Airlines again. Hidden fees everywhere that make the price much, much less of a deal than it looked when I did the price comparisons against some legitimate airlines. Frontier charged for carry-on bags, tried to charge for seat assignments (all of the available seats & not just the desired ones), charged for every beverage including sodas. Frankly I was surprised they didn't charge for water! Seats didn't recline at all & were like sitting on a metal folding chair for 5 hours. Food tray was about 3 inches wide, could barely put a plastic cup on it let alone a laptop or anything like that. Deceptive pricing combined with crappy accommodations - a combination I will avoid next time."
Pros: "The crew is courteous but still not overly understanding of someone waiting in the airport for a flight for 8 hours without any explanation for the delay."
Cons: "My flight was supposed to land in Tampa at 8:20pm and didn't land until 2:30am the next morning. This was a delay and a wait all with a 7 month old child. no explanation as to why the plane was delayed almost 8 hours and they still try to get you to pay for food when on the plane? Absolutely ridiculous. Even though the plane ticket is initially cheaper, by the time you pay $40 per checked bag, "pay" for the hours of delay or cancellation and reschedule, stress that accompanies your feelings when flying frontier knowing how unreliable they are, it's not worth it. I would rather pay $150 more and know I'll arrive on time with little or no hassle. I won't be flying with them again if I can avoid it."
Pros: "The price was excellent and staff very friendly. Landing in STL was very smooth...pilot did a super job."
Cons: "There was a mix-up in the baggage loading, thus we were delayed about 40 minutes or so...it seemed longer since it was a late flight. The attendants were very nice, air-conditioning made it all comfortable during the long wait. I totally understand how accidents can happen and I think the crew handled the delay very well. The attendant was very nice and during refreshment service, my daughter asked for 2 glasses of water and she gave them to us. We had not planned to be on the plane so long so I had not brought along anything to drink. All in all, it was a good flight. Thank you."
Cons: "The service, and delays were absolutely terrible. They switched gates on me 3 times, which in turn made me miss my flight. I then had to uber back fourth costing me $100 to get to and from the airport, when my friends dropped me off on time. I arrived 2 hours before my flight, and then it got delayed, then switched gates, then the lady at the desk told me that they were boarding at 410. I arrived at 409 at the wrong gate and to run to the other gate to board which was then 411 and they said they were departing at 410. Absolutely terrible. Never again."
Pros: "The crew was very professional, courteous."
Cons: "Glad you asked. I have always loved flying, however; the aircraft have now morphed into a large aluminum tube that is noisy, and most noticeable, very,very crowded. It will probably sound trivial,however, these days one barely has room to fold a newspaper OR enjoy a snack on those 4 by 8 in. metal trays on the seatback in front you. You know---------- this the first time I have ever been so critical of a flight of any kind. I just hope I don't see the day when they have everyone stand in the plane so that they can get more into it. I fear the true pleasure of flying has gone out the (pardon me) window."
Cons: "One crew member was rude and lazy, ignoring our beverage order. The one doing announcements likewise was trying to be funny but came off as rude"
Pros: "Hub was centrally located in Denver between the Rocky Mountains!"
Cons: "Every thing is an upcharge! Not even the carry-on bag is free! If you are in the habit of taking a carry-on when you travel (like most of us do), add another $80 charge to your round trip ticket. The only free drink on the plane is water. Soft drinks are $2, chips/peanuts/munchies are $2 and so forth! All window and isle seats are another $20-40 upcharge. I chose not to pay upcharge for an economy seat and ended up in a middle seat towards the tail of the aircraft! By the time I paid for my carry-on and premium seat on the return flight, my trip became as expensive as business class but got a very bottom deader service! Avoid this airline!"
Pros: "The crew was really nice. Plane took off on time and arrived early. Smooth flight."
Cons: "So bare bones as to make you feel almost unsafe, like you would probably be charged a safety premium if you wanted to ensure no turbulence. The only thing offered to you if you don't pay for it is water. Frontier also opts not to participate in TSA Pre-Check, which would be a small fee to them but would save much aggravation for their customers. You will be forced to sit through a 5-minute (seriously) announcement about why you should sign up for their credit card, then get reminded about it twice before you land -- if they are seeing the flight as an opportunity to run a commercial, you should at least get something for it! I think the carry-on policy is ridiculous -- however, I brought on my backpack, which fit under the seat in front of me, and then when everybody was clearly boycotting the overhead bins I just put it up there anyway. Zero entertainment options on my flight so come prepared."
Pros: "I loved the price of the tickets. My children spend the summer between Iowa and Alabama. So we travel a lot. I normally drive to Kentucky to meet up with Grandma to let them go north for part of the summer. However, this year I have planned a honeymoon, and even planned going to Virginia two weekends back to back. I thought I would fly to St. Louis from Atlanta to cut down on the driving. (I tend to get sick on road trips anyway, a flight would be nice). I found these tickets for around $50 each. I needed 3. Got them. The flight to St Louis was quick. We landed 20 mins ahead of schedule. (Made my return trip great as I was back on the same plane and was sorta freaking out about making it back to the gate in time) Landed in St Louis walked to baggage claim met up with Grandma returned with time to spare. The return flight was the same. I did not like the seats. I ended up with a massive migraine no fault of the airline but I would have loved to have been a little more comfortable. It has been a long time from my last flight and this one. The price of baggage went up. (As well as tickets which is one reason its been a while) I did notice that the airline is wanting you to prepay for baggage when you purchase the tickets. In the long run makes in SO MUCH EASIER! And with the most recent issues with TSA and getting through security that speeds things up. I paid for one checked bag. And using the frontier site was cheaper than I would have been charged at the airport. Overall I can't complain. I did make it to and from my destination on time and safely. My bag was in one piece. The seats not being the best is a minor detail. Oh. And unlike some of the other flights this one did not offer free drinks and snacks. I've flown Southwest, and Delta I was offered a soft drink and a small bag of something. I was offered to purchase these from this line. Found it odd."
Pros: "The cabin was clean, and the staff was friendly."
Cons: "I was disappointed in the surprise costs of luggage. I packed everything in a carryon so that I wouldn't have to pay for a check bag, but turns out a carry on costs $40 at check in. I understand it was a cheap flight, but I may have made a different decision if I knew there was an extra hidden cost of $80 round trip. On other notes, on the first flight of my two, the plane was swerving back and forth on takeoff and landing. The weather was fine, and I've flown plenty enough to know this wasn't normal. My second flight was fine. It was on the same plane, but the crew changed, so I guess it was pilot causing it to be this way? The seats were uncomfortable in coach for long periods of time compared to other airlines, and did not recline."
Pros: "Crew was friendly. Plane was clean."
Cons: "When booking and checking in, no opportunity to enter Known Traveler ID number, so did not get TSA precheck. No information when booking about additional charges - $30 for a carry-on bag?? additional fees almost doubled the price of the ticket. On the flight, the volume of pilot announcements were very loud, crew said it was a new plane and the volume wasn't adjusted yet. I have never been on a flight where I had to pay for water! I have since learned Frontier doesn't allow TSA precheck - will never fly this airline again for that reason."
Pros: "Crew was amazingly friendly both flights! The whole process seemed very nice and quick. I would DEFINITELY fly Frontier again in the US. Also, this is silly, but the tray tables are very cute. They are tiny (1/2 or 1/3 the size of a 'typical') and metal-ish; while not large, they are also not wobbly like on many other aircraft. I liked that there was no TV in front of me or controls in my seat; because usually I turn it off anyway but it still looks ugly and all the extra crevices in 'nicer' seats get filthy and disgusting. I did not feel grossed out by this aircraft, which is really cool."
Cons: "Obviously, it's really tiny and uncomfortable. I knew that going in and paid for an aisle seat, otherwise I would have been totally miserable. I would recommend doing that, and also NOT having stuff you need to put under the seat in front of you, because then you'll just squish yourself in more. I was fine and got both sleep and some writing done, but I did see others struggle."
Pros: "Never flew with any other airlines aside from United until I flew for the first time with Frontier. I have to say, I had a pretty good experience. I didn't expect the best accomidations compared with a major airline. But for a budget airline, I'm actually surprised and happy that there was a straight flight from MCO to STL. I couldn't find other airlines with a straight flight. I also loved how helpful the ticketing personel and boarding employee helped me out and answered some of my concerns. They were super polite and quick to help. They also had a very relaxed/laid back attitude I liked."
Cons: "I understand it's a budget airlines, but I didn't like the fact that you aren't allowed a carry-on item unless you purchase one. Most other airlines would allow one free carry-on and one free personal item. Due to this, I didn't get to pack as much as I needed for my trip. And also, it was not informed that guest had to pay for a carry-on. I was lucky enough to call the hq a day before my flight. It just so happened to be one of my concerning questions. The flight attendants were overall okay, but there were some instances that I felt they were incompetent but also not as thorough. I had trash to throw away and they passed me 3 times before I was able to throw it away. Plus I turned on my assistance light so they would come pick it up, but it took them a good 15/20 minutes to finally check in me and by that time my trash was already picked up. The seats and trays aren't as comfortable as I hoped. And I get it's a budget airlines, but that's also the reason why my flight was less comfortable or entertaining."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled due to weather. No delay. No reschedule. I got online for a refund. The final box of the refund form asked for a "Frequent Flyer Number".-something I was never given. So I had to call customer support. After dancing my way around the ridiculously confusing hotline BS, I finally got put on hold to speak to a real human, who suprisingly spoke english. It literally took 38 mintues for someone to answer the phone. This happened yesterday. I still havent recieved anytime of confirmation that im getting my money back. Pay the extra bucks, and dont fly with this company."
Pros: "The crew was very professional and very nice. The equipment was new and clean, which is also greatly appreciated. Excellent job in these two areas."
Cons: "Absolutely do not like that Frontier Airlines does not offer TSA Pre-Check service for its passengers who are enrolled in the program. I was not aware of this ahead of time, but it was confirmed to me after looking at my ticketing and speaking with several TSA agents from my departing airport, Orlando (MCO). They said Frontier is one of the very few carriers that do not participate in this program for some reason. I would love to know what that reason is? This is a very important feature for me. Without a good reason for not offering this service, I must say I am far less likely to chose Frontier in the future, along with having to make recommendations to my colleagues to avoid Frontier for this reason for their travel needs as well."
Pros: "Considering I almost didn't get a seat in the plane even though I paid for my flight prior to the fly day, there isn't much that I did like. However, I do realize that it was not any of the crews fault. With that being said, I loved how informational and informative and polite the flight crew was. Even the pilot had great communication with us and the flight attendants."
Cons: "Well where should I start. Talk about delay and they wouldn't even up date up on the delays either. When I would walk up to the desk and ask he was too busy to answer any of my questions. I also got there early and I aparntly didn't have a seat on the plane! I was going home to supruze my father for easter and there was no way I could have gone any later. I waited for everyone else to line up and go inside and get their seat because I noticed that my ticket has NN on my seat number and my zone was 99. This is very uncalled for. Considering that I payed an outrageous cost for one damn flight to Illinois in which I know you all do every night! They closed the doors to the hallway to the plane and informed not only myself but 3 others to go to the desk and they would figure out what they could! THERE WAS A WOMEN WHO HAD BEEN TRYING TO GET HOME FOR 3 DAYS. So you obviously had screwed her over and now you were about to screw all of us. Now I will say yes I am very upset with you at Frontier. But I was not about to take it out on the people working at the airport. The companies practice of overbooking is unexceptable during this time of year, Easter weekend, and not saving a seat for a women who has been trying to go home for three days. I am very upset and my ticket was very overpriced. Specially for how I got treated, due to he overbooking. Now they had one seat saved/ left over and because I kept my calm and didn't yell at your workers inside he airport they offered it to me. But if it was not for my calmness I would not be home with my family. That right there is unexceprtable!"
Cons: "Worst experience ever. I am a frequent flyer and I will NEVER give frontier my business again. Our flight was delayed without explaination... Hidden fees... I paid $350 to bring 3 bags. And I had to pay for my seat... ludacris... I was 45 minutes early for my departure and was told I was 2 MINUTES too late and I could not board the plane. ZERO courtesy, compassion, or help from the crew. They gave me a blank stare as I balled like a baby (Trying to get home to my infant son) ... Proceeded to tell me there was nothing they could do and that for $200 I could fly home the following night!! 200 dollars for a flight I already paid for!!... They even charge for WATER for crying out loud ... I could go on... pitaful."
Pros: "Not much. I expect to get from point a to point b on any flight, and that was done. Yippee. That's about the highlight, departing flight was delayed 1.5 hours for no good reason, excessive bag charges not made clear up front, cramped uncomfortable seats, not even a complimentary sip of water. On return flight bag fee was $10 more, I asked why, holiday rate I was told. So my small, carefully and frugally packed bag cost $70 to fly. Irritating. No more Frontier for me. And they have the gall to put a wolf on plane tail, referred to as Virginia by the flight people.Such an insult to both the animal and the woman."
Cons: "Chargers on the plane"
Pros: "arrived 20 mins early. good drink selection"
Cons: "couldn’t scan iphone ticket. had to go in separate line and get printout. inefficient boarding."
Pros: "Crew was nice and the flight was very smooth."
Cons: "The flight was fully booked. Being that we are in a pandemic. I was surprised that there wasn’t Covid precautions other than wearing a mask."
Pros: "I loved my experience with Spirit, very fast and the flight attendant wore very sweet."
Cons: "Honestly I don’t have any negative thing to say. Thank you for being great :)"
Cons: "Flight delay (again)"
Pros: "This was my first flight on Spirit. I was very pleased with the ala cart model. I chose the big front seat and it was very comfortable. Boarding was quick, the staff was very nice and there was plenty of legroom and space for my carry on. I will choose Spirit again."
Cons: "WiFi would have been a nice option."
Pros: "The stuetist."
Cons: "I used the kiosk to check in. But I still had to wait for everyone in line to drop my bag. We waited 14 minutes. Then the lady was talking to her coworker and not us. We spent 30 minutes just checking in before security. Then our seats were suppose to be together. After talking with the guy at the gate to get our seat assignments. We were sitting on opposite sides of the plane. So much for our anniversary trip together. I purchased 2 tickets together. So we would be next to each other. Worse flight experience."
Pros: "Nothing, they are not offering Non stop flights from Cle to Msyin the morning any longer"
Cons: "They lost my Luggage, and just wanted to write up a claim instead of actually looking for it and tracking it down"
Cons: "I paid extra to pick my seat. My row was not full and before take off they put a rather large man in the middle seat of my row. I told the attendant why did she choose this row when there are so many open seats. She was rude and said - this is the seat I have chosen and that is final. The mad DID NOT pay like I did to pick his seat. He just banked on getting a randomly selected good seat or the attendant to help get a new seat. WHY DID I PAY EXTRA when other can just choose their own seat. This makes no sense and was the last straw for me for Spirit. They nickel and dime you - but it really doesn't matter."
Pros: "That I made it home on time, despite a late departure that wasn't explained. Your crew is pleasant"
Cons: "1) no explaination of late departure 2) lack of creature comforts (like WiFi and a slightly remind seat) And the extra fees for bags, preferred seating, etc. When you add up those costs, the overall fare is not nearly as much. I get cutbacks, but you're making flying an increasingly uncomfortable experience."
Cons: "Flight Delayed over 17 Hours. Staff did not let folks know who could have booked flights on other airlines. Ended up stuck overnight in CLE. Flight was supposed to leave at 3:39 Wednesday, however ended up leaving the next morning. One thing good about Spirit, it makes you appreciate all the other good airlines."
Pros: "Was on time, newer aircraft"
Cons: "Nickle and dimed for everything from seat assignments to 40 lb bag limit"
Pros: "It was a comfortable flight - plenty of space in the cabin of the plane and it was a direct flight"
Cons: "Having to pay an additional fee for everything (carry on, beverage, checked bag, snack--- literally everything) and the fees were quite steep. In the end it's cheaper to fly American or Delta. So don't let the base price on Kayak fool you"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Being 2 hours late"
Pros: "The boarding process was expedited on both my Cleveland to Las Vegas flight and Las Vegas to Seattle. The crew was friendly on the aircraft"
Cons: "Both flights were behind causing me to miss the last ferry and spend $150 extra to take a cab around pudget sound to make it to work on time tomorrow. In Las Vegas after having my personal item on the plane from Cleveland to Las Vegas I was informed by the gate staff that I would have to pay an additional $55 dollars for my bag and that they were giving me a deal because at the gate it should be $65. After arguing with the attenedent and showing both tickets for the same seat on the same aircraft she conceded after finding out I was in the military."
Pros: "Nothing to like."
Cons: "My first time flying Spirit. Flight was delayed two hours. If you are taller than 5'1 and weigh more that 90 lbs don't book this airline no matter what the low price. No seat room. No leg room. No way to use a laptop comfortably. Joke of a tray table barely the length of two iPhone 5s and with the width of one iPhone 5."
Cons: "Flights were delayed and over booked, I didn't have a seat and couldn't make my final destination. Had to pay 400 to book another flight with another airline."
Pros: "The crew was very polite and professional. The in flight experience was fantastic excluding my lack of comfort. A seat in front of me remained reclined the entire time during take off and descent. It was unacceptable and it limited my leg room completely."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed several hours and the "apology" given was a $50.00 voucher. I wasn't impressed because frankly after that experience I am not excited to fly Spirit again. As a busy professional, my time is valuable. This trip was a vacation and I lost essentially an entire day of my vacation due to the delays. We paid the additional money for advanced boarding which was never called at the gate. We were later told that this was included with "handicap and people needing assistance." There should be a requirement to call those with advanced boarding. We do not need assistance and therefore did not know to board early. I was very disappointed in my experience with spirit."
Pros: "The crew are lovely. But I hate Spirit."
Cons: "Non-reclinable seats are offensive. They cheat customers, I think. If this hadn't been he most vaguely affordable ticket available, I would have steered clear. I cannot stand their gimmicky BS. It makes me want to hurl. Also to get offa this plane."
Pros: "Arrived an hour ahead of time. Stood in lines at three ticketing kiosks all three rejected my passport and other ID, all of which are current and valid. Then an employee tapes signs saying the machines are out of order. By the time I got to the person at the desk they said there were only 40 minutes left and the flight closed at 45 minutes. The next flight they offered was in three days. I asked if any other airline had flights and they said they had no way of checking other airlines."
Cons: "Rude and incompetent, as I said. Wil never fly them again, I'd get there sooner walking."
Pros: "Flight was on time and loaded quickly. All the staff were super friendly."
Cons: "All the fees, $3 for a drink, seat fees, move up the level for loading, baggage fees. Did not really save any money once I calculated all the fees."
Pros: "Boarding was a breeze. The crew was polite. The food was as displayed via the menu. it was a straightforward and simple process. The flight itself arrived safely so that's really the most important part."
Cons: "The chairs on airbus 319 were truly awful for that long of a flight. I flew spirit for the last leg of my trip in an airbus 320, and that was considerably more comfortable. I will know next time to just spend the money and get the big seats if possible (they were reserved by the time I chose my seats)."
Cons: "My flight was delayed 4 hours. The connecting plane then left without several passengers that were headed to Seattle. We were not notified that the flight was leaving without us. The employees were extremely rude and showed no remorse that we missed our flight because of their delay. We were given no options, just told we would have to deal with it. They refused to refund our flight or help with finding us a different flight home. We slept on the floor of the airport until the next day and took a different airline home. I will never fly this airline again. Their service is dispicable."
Cons: "My flight to LAX was delayed due to tech problems. Staff lied and said it was weather, found out later from pilot it wasn't. Missed my connecting int'l flight, had to pay $450 out of pocket. Spirit doesn't want to reimburse and instead offered $50 voucher. $50?? That is how much they charge for 1 bag. Ridiculous. My first experience with Spirit and may be the last unless they reimburse me. In LAX they make you check in "online" on a kiosk (presumably to save you time), then make you wait in line for another hour to drop your bag off. WTH? What's the point of that charade? Worst check-in experience of my life. This airline won't last long if they treat people this way. Their own staff appeared miserable and on the verge of homicide or suicide. No wonder."
Pros: "hmm, you got me to and from my destination."
Cons: "On both outbound and return flight I could not print my boarding pass. First your website made me change passwords, which was frustrating b/c the process did not work the first few times. Then I could not print my boarding pass, it just said "loading something awesome". It was not awesome to try several times and never print the boarding pass. So I arrive at the airport and they told me the flight was oversold and that I should have printed my boarding pass earlier. This occurred on both departing as well as returning flights."
Cons: "My flight on Friday evening (Flight 510 I believe) was badly delayed due to the inbound aircraft being grounded in LA which would have caused me to miss my connecting flight. In hopes of remedying the situation I tried calling Spirit Airlines directly (about 2.5 hours before departure) but the only advice they would give me was to go to the ticketing counter at the airport anyway and see what they say. What is the point of having a phone line if no one will give you advice? Anyway, I went to the airport and ticketing counter and they too were not helpful. All they said to me was we can reimburse you or give you a credit towards another flight at a later time. They didn't talk to me about other flights I could take with them to get me to my destination. They didn't discuss partnering airlines that could help. They seemed entirely disinterested in me. So much so that they began hanging holiday decorations in front of me. I want to point out that at no point was anyone rude to me, they were just unable to help with anything and didn't seem like they wanted to try. I will not be flying with Spirit Airlines again."
Cons: "the seat i chose didn't recline & im not paying more $ to find out which ones do."
Pros: "All flights for this trip were relatively on time and without considerable annoyance."
Cons: "There was an issue with boarding/delayed take off with the flight from Atlanta to Orlando. Too often the captain and flight attendants mismanage and/or poorly communicate these delays to passengers and it leads to increasing the hostility of those on the plane. Spirit, like many airlines I've been on recently need to undergo a course in better communication, especially in an atmosphere where tensions easily build and the expectations of a seamless flight are seldomly lived up to."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and accommodating."
Cons: "My flights to and from Cleveland were delayed- not due to weather. We were not told why the first flight was delayed but we were told on our flight from Cleveland to Boston that the plane had a broken part. It seemed like the aircraft itself was cheap (even the tray tables are half the size of normal tray tables) and I wondered about my safety. Won't be flying Spirit again."
Pros: "It was a direct flight to Cleveland... and it APPEARED to be cheaper than a more traditional airline."
Cons: "Let's start with your website, which never functioned -- except to book my ticket. 30 minutes and numerous tries to get a seat, to pay for a carry on bag & the same "unable to process at this time" response. When I called, the gentleman lacked strong English as a second language skills -- and that ordeal took another 25 minutes. Nice as can be, but really struggled to figure out HOW to keep my seats, which were showing blocked + couldn't tell if the charge was processed. Then there's the lack of participation in the TSA Program, which means having to unpack three computers and ALL liquids... The cattle call boarding process -- even when you pay the upcharge. And the kinda crummy/dirty waiting area at LAX, from going through security so early -- to make sure I didn't miss my flight. The seats so lack support, I work up with a horrible back ache. Definitely bring a blanket or firm pillow -- if you have ANY back issues, which I don't. It's a start up airline, and they charge for everything but oxygen. So if you don't want to carry on, you don't mind the almost freight plane experience... This is probably a pretty good deal. AND they fly direct to Cleveland, which is always a good thing."
Pros: "I would say the fare, but after all the nickel and diming, the fare isn't even better."
Cons: "- Bags cost $45 to fly, making the flight just as expensive as other flights and much worse condition. Should've flown Southwest or American with much better service, planes and technology. -Tried to check in before the flight on my phone, unable to do so. Had to use desktop. Even desktop was difficult. - Didn't have access to printer for my return flight, saved photo of boarding pass to my phone (works on other airlines), but wasn't able to check in with just the picture. Had to return to ticket desk to get ticket all the way across the airport. (7 months pregnant...annoying) - Of the 6 or so kiosks in CLE, only 2 were working. Desk agents were just standing there not helping. - Seats don't recline, plane is tight and uncomfortable. - Overall, bad airline, bad service, will never fly Spirit again. Scam artists with their nickel and diming."
Cons: "Where do I begin? The price seemed reasonable until I arrived and they charged me $55 to CARRY-ON my bag. Would have been $55 to check it but I was afraid they would lose it. Then boarding the plane there was a sign saying "FIT CREW: We have the youngest crew of any airline". To me that says age discrimination and also inexperience. When I finally sat down, there was trash on my seat and also facial oil on the window. It was clear that they did not clean between flights. Sitting down, my seat was broken and reclined every time I leaned against it. I had a child about 5 years old behind me that was disturbing everyone in our area and the flight attendant never addressed the situation with their parent. When the child was slamming their tray up and down on the back of my seat, a stranger finally said something. Also, don't expect to even get water for free. $3 a pop! The landing was also extremely rough. Needless to say, I will never fly this airline again!"
Cons: "My return flight was oversold, so they wouldn't give me a boarding pass, then said I wasn't due any compensation because I didn't have a boarding pass. Supervisor in Cleveland was one of the rudest people I have ever encountered in all my years of flying. So I had to stay another day. I had my child car seat in a plastic bag and it came back with the bag shredded, black marks on the seat and soaked."
Pros: "Almost 2 hours late, did not accommodate my wheelchair needs, unprofessional people at the check in & then again at gate. Not TSA Prechek, charged for a carry on, had no APP to check in, wouldn't check in on iPad had to be on a computer, kept asking for additional add ons, had to pay $20 to specifically order a seat bc of my injured leg. Wheelchair staff at both airports said that Spirit is always a problem for them, no wheelchair waiting for me at the gate & received no help from staff."
Pros: "Overall good experience."
Cons: "There was a huge delay and all food was for purchase, so I couldn't eat for several hours, bc I wasn't prepared to spend that many hours waiting."
Pros: "The price was low to book, but read on, because it wasn't worth it."
Cons: "Absolutely terrible in all other respects. After delaying the flight for 20 minutes or so (due to "maintenance issues"), the employee came on and said that the flight was cancelled. Not that Spirit would bring a new plane so we could all still fly out. Not that they would be taking a little longer to fix the issue. No, just that it was cancelled. Then, when the herd of people went to the ticket counter to get new flights or refunds, no one was there for about 30 minutes. When they finally arrived, they were unwilling to compensate for my $30 taxi ride. And they were generally unkind and unhelpful. This is unacceptable; I will not book Spirit again. Thank you for your understanding."
Pros: "Plane was clean and new"
Cons: "I didn't see an option to pay for my luggage as I bought my ticket. Tried to purchase carry-on bag/print boarding pass when checking in online but was unaware that I already had created account and didn't know password. Tried to reset password twice but did not receive the emails until a day later. After dedicating a lot of time on the last day of my vacation trying to check in, I gave up. Very frustrating. Had to pay for boarding pass and luggage at check-in counter."
Cons: "Paying for every breath I took!! Cramped seats!"
Pros: "One lady was the only help in Fort Lauderdale out of every single part of our round trip."
Cons: "Showed up almost an hour early to Cleveland airport to fly to another state. The lady tried telling us we missed our trip because she made us go to the kiosk to only get denied by the kiosk and having to go back to her for her to deny us until we flipped out making her realize it's her fault. Charged us extra for carry on baggage because the checked baggage "wouldn't make it." Writing that in a note that we were late...even though it was her fault we were. Our tickets were 218 dollars each we ended up paying 200 dollars for our baggage because you have to pay for both trips which is another round trip ticket to Florida because the lady never told us in Cleveland that we had to buy both ways. Everything on the plane to order was a cost not even water was complimentary. On the way back we got to the airport two hours early to find no one at the counter to help us at the gate...she showed up only about 30 minutes before we boarded, real professional...but we cut our vacation by an hour and a half because we "have to come 90 minutes ahead" to find none of the spirit crew members to be even present. Everything was inconvenient with this airline and not pleasant. Only positive was a lady in Fort Lauderdale that helped us figure out our luggage and did what she could to save us a bit of money. We will never take this airline again."
Pros: "The flight crew was fast and efficient. The seating was comfortable and the plane was new."
Cons: "I did not buy a drink or food so I don't have an opinion on that. But I love the lower fare because we all didn't bundle and pay for snacks."
Cons: "What I did not like was that the seats were extremely uncomfortable, they would not lean back and they also had very little cushion. I also did not like that there are no complimentary items for the passengers (I know that's one of Spirit's thing however when I cant even get a water cup I find that bad). As well everything on their menu is overpriced. I also did not like that fact that they have more hidden fees than any other airline out there. I was charged almost three different amounts to carry on my bags (I had layovers as well as other flights with Spirit). I had to pay more to bring my bags with me than it was for my tickets. I also feel like Spirit (although upfront ticket price is cheap) will fly at the most inconvenient hours or ways (meaning lots of layovers, long ones at that, or leaving at late/early hours). I did not enjoy this airline and I feel sorry for whoever gets stuck flying with them."
Pros: "Nothing...the entire experience was the most terrible flying experience."
Cons: "From the start...I walked up to the counter (first time flying Spirit) and the girl working the counter was on her cell on Facebook or texting, she immediately had an attitude. I said, how's your day, she wouldn't even look at me, she said 'fine' and wouldn't ask me about mine...she said 'give me your license...put your bag on the scale'...the she said something and I couldn't understand her and when I said, Jm sorry what did you say, she says slowly and really loudly in a condescending manner...after all this I say...I'm sorry, is there something wrong...and she said 'the moment you walked in here you disrespected me so I'm gonna disrespect you back' - that was the beginning first impression of your airline...I've never written a comment to an airline...this I can't stop thinking about. I was treated, the moment we walked in there, like we treated people terribly and I must confess I can't stop thinking about it and it's not the way we are. The immediate blame placed on us was unfounded and unfare...this is not a bad day for someone...this is an attitude and one that is Cleary approved of by the company. The sad part is, when we share our experience, anyone we talked with had the exact same one."
Pros: "I flew Round-Trip LAX-CLE-LAX. Flight from CLE to LAX left on time and even arrived about 40 minutes ahead of schedule."
Cons: "I flew Round-Trip LAX-CLE-LAX. Flight from LAX to CLE was almost 3 hrs. delayed & we could not get a straight answer as to why. My biggest complaint is this airline needs to be much more transparent about the ACTUAL cost of flying w/ them versus what they advertise! It is ridiculous to have to pay $55.00 each way for a carry-on! For that same additional $110.00 I could have flown on a better airline that didn't have hidden fees, didn't try to check my carry-on at a higher rate & then get upset when I made them fix the error, didn't stick me in a cramped flying cattle car (more or less) with tiny seats that didn't even recline. The counter agents at LAX were helpful & friendly but not so at CLE. The agent there seemed very annoyed & was the one making the aforementioned error. I will NOT fly this airline again & wouldn't be surprised to see them go out of business."
Cons: "4.5 hour delay with no explanation, boarding staff were disorganized, sloppy. They boarded flight without scanning boarding passes. Once we were boarded they discovered that three people had boarded with a different destination. It was horrible. When you make people wait over 4 hours you shouldn't also charge them for water."
Cons: "Well lets put it this way we get to the airport early like they say you should.Then check in bags prepaid then go through TSA to get to your gate everything looks good.We get something to eat take our time go back to gate to find out plane has been delayed from 11:55 to 12:53 ok no problem it happens sit around half hour go check again and delayed again 12:53 to 1:53 so now your thinking WOW now we understand why Spirit has the WORST COMPLAINTS then any other airlines. BUT YOU STILL CHARGE FOR EVERYTHING INCLUDING ALL SEATS, BOARDING PASSES, ALL BAGS INCLUDING CARRY ON BAGS.Under stand low rates but come on give us a break FYI last year different AIRLINE and 17 inches of snow on ground and left on time no problems , and NO EXTRA FEES just to sit on the plane, so you tell us should was the cheap rate worth it......Our time is JUST AS IMPORTANT as your airline.....and maybe if we HADN'T felt we'd been lied to about fee s the delay wouldn't have been so bad....."
Cons: "I had to check in and pay for my personal baggage going, and coming back I did not have to pay for it as it should had been in the first place. It was a small rolling tote around bag with my personal items."
Cons: "The only flights that were delayed out of Cleveland were Sprit flights. We were 1.5 hours late and I didn't receive an email notification. Just before we left home we got an email from Kayak that said the flight was on time."
Pros: "They make up for their cheap airline tickets by gauging you with astranamacal fees. You have to pay for a glass of water and I paid nearly the same amount to ship my bags(carry-on) as my plane ticket. It was my first experience and will be my last no mater the cost."
