Cons: "Small plane, feels cramped"
Cons: "The unfortunate delay prevented me from attending my grandmother’s wake. Fewer delays would be helpful."
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "The boarding process was rough and haphazard"
Pros: "The crew did their best to deal with delay."
Cons: "There was an absolutely awful job done by both Delta and Kayak of informing us if additional delays, new gate assignments, when the plane would be reboarded. Also, people were quite angry that the plane had to be cleaned between the time we got off and the time we reboarded. Just get us home."
Cons: "No sandwiches for sale just snack boxes"
Pros: "The fight was very professionally carried out."
Cons: "The gate agent hurried ineffectively to board our slightly delayed flight (around 10 min). She left open the Priority Lane and boarded all pax there, having to step 4 steps to the left to scan every boarding pass."
Pros: "It was ok"
Cons: "Seat the family together"
Pros: "The crew and the comfort plus seat"
Cons: "Announcements were too loud in earphones (could damage ear drums) and entertainment was turned off while waiting 30 min for the gate to open."
Cons: "Taxied at ORD for 45 minutes waiting for a gate to vacate."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours. Even though I had carry on, they checked it and this made me waste my time at baggage claim rather than gate checking. Flight attendants were miserable. Power supply didn’t work at seats."
Pros: "Friendly service, comfortable seat, on time, no issues."
Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "The flight was 4 hours delayed"
Pros: "I flew on a basic economy fare (I understand the restrictions) and was seated in Economy Comfort +, so that was appreciated."
Cons: "I could see on the Fly Delta app that I had been placed in seat 10B, but neither the app nor my boarding pass gave me a group to board with, so I assumed that I needed to board with group 3, which necessitated gate-checking my rollerboard bag. Only when I approached the gate to board did I notice on the info screen that I had been "upgraded" to Comfort + and granted boarding with the Sky Priority group. I wish this had been clearer so I could have avoided waiting to board and gate-checking my bag. Minor inconvenience but room for improvement on Delta's part."
Pros: "Friendly staff and comfortable seating"
Pros: "This was not my original transfer flight but everyone was much nicer and helpful than serious and being rude. Love Delta, I did not flight United because I wouldn’t have met my United flight once landing in ATL. The Young African American woman who was at the gate was amazing and so reassuring that I would make my flight to Chicago. Would book Delta, just because of how nice she was to me."
Pros: "i liked that staff and crew were very communicative and pleasant."
Cons: "one crew member didn't show up and caused delayed flight."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Boarded quickly with no fuss."
Pros: "Flt on time, very nice and friendly gate agent and flight attendant"
Cons: "Too tight and seats not comfortable."
Pros: "The Delta people were solicitous, efficient and brilliant the whole way through. We had not a bit of trouble. Our first class seats were comfortable, but with the supplied blanket, pillow and poor air conditioning it was a hot flight. The cabin personnel were wonderful as per usual, and my tasty gin and tonic soothed any discontent. I wish I could fly this way all the time!"
Cons: "The private contractor handling wheelchair assistance was terrible. A Delta employee theorized that they do not pay enough to attract and retain personnel. Our pre-arranged chair was not there, multiple calls by our Delta assistant finally got us a ride to the chair holding area, but after about 45 minutes we gave up and shuffled off to the security area on foot. Thank goodness my hubby is mobile enough for that to have been an option. When we abandoned our wait we were still 4th in line for an attendant to push the chair. If Delta has any responsibility in this it would be in the retention and compensation for the private contractor."
Cons: "The delta studio didn't work with Android 8"
Pros: "We were traveling with a toddler and infant but put in different row because the tickets were purchased separately. Gate staff promptly put us together and even bumped us up to delta comfort. Was a very pleasant trip. Thanks delta!"
Pros: "Ease of flight"
Pros: "Great friendly service and easy boarding. Timely!"
Cons: "For the money they charge, a few little perks such as improved snacks wouldn't hurt the bottom line"
Pros: "Plane arrived early"
Cons: "They board the front of the plane first, meaning the aisles get clogged up slowing down the process. Also, staff kept insisting pre boarding that more people needed to check their bags because there wasn't enough overhead bin space, but there were plenty of bins not full by take off."
Pros: "Accident on way to airport, so I showed up to check bags 45 minutes before flight time. They said they couldn't get the bag to the plane..in 45 minutes? So, they put on the next flight... 6 hours later. Said I could fly without the bag... uh, no thanks. They would not look for alternatives without charging me more. Flight attendants were crabby, otherwise everything was fine. I flew British Airways a few months ago. Night and day. Seriously. Delta does not even approach having good service. There was no comparison to British Air--- Delta is not in the same league."
Pros: "Airline stewards were very friendly and pleasant."
Cons: "We booked with Delta, but were put on Air France. Even though we had our boarding passes in hand we had to wait in long, slow line for baggage tags because they would not print from kiosk. There was minimal Air France staff on duty serving thousands of passengers during busy season (July). While the lines grew larger, the staff was reduced from 4 to 2. Another long, slow line for customs, another long slow line for security=Charles De Gaulle airport was awful. We arrived at the airport 4 hours before our departure time and got to our boarding gate with no time to spare."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable, seats did not recline and seats way too close together."
Pros: "Entertainment options weren't bad. Most of the crew was polite other than one flight attendant who seemed ambivalent and unhappy to be there."
Cons: "Three hour+ flight and just one tiny bag of pretzels? And no lemon or lime wedges on the beverage cart? Plus, I have to pay extra for one checked bag. I will only fly Delta if I have to in the future. Subpar airline."
Pros: "What I liked: Sky Priority privilege came with separate luggage check-in queues and early boarding"
Cons: "What I disliked: Seats were too small No beverages or snacks offered No USB or power outlets available Three different groups board before Delta Comfort (e.g. those needing more time, travelers with children, first/business class) Didn't see the value compared to a less expensive main cabin ticket"
Pros: "I was notified about the delay via text before I left for the airport, which was nice. I would not have checked my email."
Cons: "Delayed for over 2 hours. I have never flown Delta before this flight and it wasn't a great representation. The flight attendants were nice but I was in a seat near the engine and it was making really weird noises. I fly almost every two weeks, so I'm used to engine noises but this was one of the loudest/most rickety sounding flights I have ever been on.. and I have flown Spirit a few times. It just didn't feel safe. Landing scared me a little too as I have landed in O'Hare countless times and have never flown so low to the highway upon entry. It felt like we were only a couple hundred feet above the cars."
Pros: "Great short trip with an attentive crew."
Cons: "Seats were a bit uncofortable and small compared to previous flights."
Cons: "Unnecessary flight cancellation. I had friends taking the same flight at the same time at the same airport from different airlines and they came through for their customers. I received no consolation it assistance with overnight accommodations."
Cons: "The flight attendant looked like she was mad throughout the whole flight"
Pros: "We were delayed due to weather and Delta brought a cart of snacks and drinks over to the gate for us."
Pros: "Everything went well"
Cons: "I was late from first flight"
Pros: "First time flying DELTA and to New York City. Really liked flying into Marine Terminal for it's smallness and easiness to collect luggage and catch a taxi."
Pros: "great crew!"
Cons: "If we had access to the WiFi to watch shows earlier like United does, that would be nice."
Pros: "Nothing good to say about AA"
Cons: "AA screwed up reservations by rescheduling flights by 3 hours earlier (done not once but two times) causing 6 hour layover. This plus an additional 2:38 delay on next flight made the journey horrible. Will never book an AA/BA flight again for intrnational travel."
Pros: "All crew very friendly & helpful. Went out of their way to help elderly gentleman traveling alone"
Pros: "The flight was on time, cabin crew looked nice and professional, AA stuff at the airport of departure was very helpful with complicated check-in procedure."
Cons: "It was a short flight (less than an hour) and only complimentary drinks were offered, no little snacks (like pretzels, peanuts or cookies)."
Cons: "More than 24 passengers on the flight from LAX to Chicago lost their connection to Venice After we landed in Chicago with 2 hours delays we all run to catch our flight to Venice and we got there 5 minutes after the flight was supposed to leave but was still there instead but we were denied access and send back to customer service"
Pros: "British Airways seats"
Cons: "If we did not arrive at the airport 3hours ahead, and get on an earlier flight we would have missed our connecting flight to England. Do Not book such shoes time between flights because often they are delayed."
Cons: "3 hours late leaving Dublin, with poor communicstion on the monitors as to gate info. not to mention the lateness."
Cons: "Flight crew was an hour late to the flight, whereas customers were waiting for far longer than that."
Cons: "3 boarding doors less than 50 feet apart with departures leaving within 15 min of each other created a difficult to penetrate gaggle."
Pros: "There is not much to like when you over charge for seats and have staff who don’t accomodate for family to sit together or someone with a disability who needs to use the restroom often to sit on an aisle seat."
Cons: "Staff has horrible attitude. Price for seats and luggage is ridiculous."
Pros: "Flights reached the destination before scheduled arrival"
Cons: "Chicago airport is a mess. It took us about 3 hours from exiting international terminal to domestic We managed to board a flight just before the gate close. Literally running in the airport. I believe there are people who missed the flight"
Pros: "Great entertanment system and nice complimentary drinks including liqour."
Cons: "Seats a little cramped in coach"
Pros: "Best landing I’ve experienced recently!"
Pros: "the Bowing 787 was wonderful"
Cons: "flight had been delay and delay. we are very disappoint because we always think we are fly with British airway, we even went to check in counter of British airway but find out America airline are the solo airline.you guys can't advertized like that."
Pros: "The flight was great. Lots of movies to choose from. Food was pretty good too."
Cons: "They moved our flight around multiple times. We first had a layover in Chicago then through multiple emails and one phone call they just flew us straight to London with no layover. It all worked out it was just stressful not knowing exactly when we were flying out and if we were going to make our connecting flights. It did work out and we did make it."
Pros: "I made it"
Cons: "I had to run for all its worth."
Pros: "Smootm and in early."
Cons: "Not knowing no gratis drinks were served."
Cons: "Flight delays and cancellations."
Pros: "I got there on time and they didn't lose my luggage."
Cons: "The planes are too cramped, costs are too high, staff just love pointing out a carry on isn't a carry on even though it's sold as one and fits in every other airline's definition of one. Boarding process is ridiculous."
Cons: "Legroom was a bit cramped for a tall person"
Cons: "Bought 2 tickets but seats weren’t together poor service"
Cons: "charged a surprise of $175 for my third bag although Kayak mentioned i should be charged $75 at the time of booking. AA says it is due to Jordanyan Airlines, why was I surprised by this extra charge?!"
Pros: "Should have booked AA instead of BA."
Cons: "AA couldn't find BA reservation. poor integration of services"
Pros: "Flight was on-time and crew was pleasant. This flight had movies available to watch!"
Cons: "Our bags were lost going to Rome for a wedding and our cloths were in the bags for the brides father and sister bridesmade. No updates and the have my phone number and email address. You would think it was 1968 or something! Unacceptable in this day and age of communication! The wedding is in 48 hours and can’t find our bags? All this was explained to the airline in Rome the baggage handlers etc. etc. still nothing. Absolutely amazing and disappointing!"
Pros: "Great service."
Pros: "Fast reliable two thumbs up!!!"
Pros: "One cabin crew went the extra mile for me...rescued a partial dental plate which I had inadvertently tossed in the trash."
Pros: "Good and entertainment"
Cons: "I have short legs so the long flight was uncomfortable. A stop of some sort would helpnif offered"
Pros: "The helpful steward"
Cons: "The bumpy ride"
Pros: "excellent flight. on time and no issues"
Cons: "Although an email was received 3 hours before departure that everything was on schedule, we were told when checking in our whole itinerary had been changed to leave the next day. We had not been contacted and we missed our daughter’s professional basketball game in France. This was the reason we bought the tickets from Kayak to begin with. The cancellations were happening with British Airlines and they were not working with American Airlines to help us out to get to the game on time."
Pros: "Staff and Entertainment"
Cons: "Back row, but someone has to sit there :)"
Pros: "fairly comfortable, crew was helpful"
Cons: "Having to use my phone for entertainment, with no place to plug it in"
Cons: "A passenger caused a delay in security, and as I'm rushing for the gate, the agent closed the door and told me I couldn't board. She then marked me as a no-show, while she was standing right next front of her. I had to spend the next 4 hrs on the phone, trying to get my tickets sorted out. Then, upon arriving at Heathrow,... No luggage. They told me it was still in Chicago. Upon finally receiving my bags, I find them full of sawdust and sand, and several items damaged. I will NEVER fly American Airlines again, and I will highly recommend to my friends and family to avoid them like them plague. Horrible service! Nothing but a run-around and not once did the agents apologise, even after admitting that my problems on this journey were due to a mistake made by one of their agents."
Pros: "There was nothing too bad other than I wasn't able to check in online bc our first leg of the flight was operated by American Airlines. But there wasn't anything that really stood out that would make me want to fly them again other than it was the best price."
Pros: "The crew was very helpful at each stop even though they weren't responsible for the disasters."
Cons: "Initially we thought we were flying with British Airways. We then had to do some digging to realize it was all out of American Airlines. Then we couldn't get proper boarding passes and luggage tags until one of the crew members spent a significant amount of time untangling each leg of our trip so they were in the proper order. We got delayed by 4 hours in Chicago and missed our connection in Manchester. We had another 5 hour wait there. By the time we got to Dublin, our bags didn't also arrive. After almost 24 hours of travel, we arrived but without all of our stuff."
Pros: "Very friendly staff, on time, most of all very comfortable."
Cons: "The Oppurtunity that could improve is the boarding in plane to have passengers board in groups."
Pros: "They were absolutely fantastic on checking on me, food, service, flight in general. Would recommend to anyone!!!"
Pros: "Easy flight, friendly crew."
Cons: "Girl next to me being sick the whole time"
Pros: "I like the comfortable chairs and screen touch screen in the seat in front of me"
Pros: "JAL is customer oriented and it's always a pleasant experience. Unfortunately, though the return trip is also JAL, the cabin crew isn't."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for 2 hours and after seated in the AA plane for 2 hours, the flight was canceled because without pilot?! Changed to a UA plane but after seated in the UA plane 1 hour, the plane needed to be maintenanced. Had been changed to another UA plane. After three times into three planes, arrived Chicago at 3:30am without the checked baggage."
Cons: "Nothing at all"
Pros: "our original flight was cancel due to snow, and we were placed at a hotel and food vouchers were given as well"
Cons: "no head set were passed out making video entertainment useless"
Pros: "Almost half empty cabin made this a very pleasant flight!"
Cons: "Food on AA was mediocre as usual. Edamame salad was nice and fresh for a change. Desserts are now prepackaged wrapping similar to candy bar..."
Cons: "That it got cancelled"
Pros: "It's a good flight but the crew in Mexico City is really bad"
Cons: "Good flight experience, but the front desk in Mexico they are really mean. I request to talk with the manager to give me solutions but the manager was the worst. The manager show lack of experience and he was unable to give me solutions. He give me more problems than good news."
Pros: "Flight was fine"
Cons: "When I arrived at CMI no ticket was issued for my second leg, so I could not use the internal transit bus to at Terminal 5 at ORD ("for ticketed passengers only). I had to exit use the external train (which was delayed) and go through the very slow Terminal 5 security. Almost missed my ORD-LHR flight (arrived at the gate after the official closing time)"
Cons: "Complimentary ear plugs and eye mask would have been great."
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Luggage was damaged, flight was delayed multiple times, baggage took forever to retrieve (and was not prioritized properly)"
Pros: "The crew was good. Some flight attendants aren’t very personable."
Cons: "Pretzels? Really bad."
Pros: "I have always loved flying Lufthansa however we didn't fly Lufthansa, we were on United for both legs of our flight. Like all American opperated airlines they skimp on comfort in order to pack more people on their flight. I hope we are on Lufthansa on our way home at least."
Cons: "We were on United, see above."
Pros: "It was fine"
Pros: "Airport person with wheelchair at Denver was extremely helpful getting a disabled co-travelor from gate b85 to gate b28 in record time to catch the flight to Chicago. A BIG Thank You to the agent in charge of boarding for getting the three of us sitting together."
Cons: "The direct tv screen couldn’t be shutoff. With a plan as big as a 757 there should be a beverage cart per section of the aircraft otherwise passengers at the far end are wondering why they’re being left out."
Pros: "United representatives were friendly."
Cons: "TSA at Denver was the worst I have ever experienced in all my years of flying - they closed down lanes despite incredibly long lines winding around the entire floor of of the security areas, their staff was rude and the lines moved incredibly slowly - mostly because they seemed understaffed and unconcerned with anything other than themselves."
Pros: "The flight attendant"
Cons: "United in general"
Pros: "On time for once"
Cons: "Cost of the flights + baggage"
Cons: "Flight was cold-air blowing that I could not turn off"
Pros: "Couldn't get Wi-Fi to work"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "The seats r too small"
Pros: "I got home safely."
Cons: "Every time I fly United they manage to screw something up. Two hour delay on the way out. 45 minute delay on the way home while they located another plane (mechanical problems) made my connection impossible. They did get me on a plane to Newark, which was also delayed. I made the connection by the skin of my teeth and a lot of anguish. My luggage did not. All in all, a very unpleasant travel day."
Pros: "Apathetic unfriendly and unprofessional personnel at ticket counter. If handicapped don't look for anyone to help. They clearly let you know it's your problem-- not their responsibility to help."
Pros: "Staff was very friendly."
Cons: "I only had 2 nights in chicago and one was completely ruined as we got in so late that the event we were supposed to attend was already finished. We also were sitting for a long time and it was very uncomfortable while waiting to take off. We didn't get any beverages after sitting for a long time and finally did once we were in the air which was 2 hours later."
Cons: "Very late."
Cons: "Boarding by zones causes passengers to have to stand longer while waiting to board, inconveniences them by having passengers seated in window and middle seats often arrive after the passenger in the aisle seat, and slows down the entire process because passengers settling into the front part of the plane frequently board and stow luggage while those seated in the back queue up behind them. Compared to boarding by row, the entire process is now one lengthy mess."
Cons: "showed up for a 5:20am flight and was told at check-in it was now 7:30... Nobody could have told me that before I woke up early, got a cab early and showed up to the airport early?!"
Pros: "The staff was friendly and the boarding was orderly"
Cons: "The economy seats were so squished and everything from movies to food (other than Chex mix) is an additional fee. I'm a small person and still felt like the personal space and leg room was way smaller than it should be. I had to pay $8 to watch cable bc otherwise you just have to look at a screen with ads on it the whole flight. I used to love united. Now I feel like it just sneaks in extra charges like all of the cheap airlines. Not going out of my way to look for united anymore."
Cons: "Seats sucked hard no give. Cramed in like cattle"
Pros: "The flight was great."
Cons: "The turbulence was the worst part"
Cons: "Seemed like a newer plane that had a lot less leg room than my previous flight. I'm pretty short and I was uncomfortable."
Cons: "Was given a seat in the last row of the plane, which didn't recline. There was not enough room for my carryon cuggage and I had the lowest priority boarding. The option to upgrade was $99 each way"
Cons: "Got to the airport and my reservation was not existent despite receiving confirmation. As well, my wife's TSA pre-check was not available on her ticket and this made us almost late."
Pros: "baggage crew was awesome on this trip. my skis and bags were awaiting in the claim area before I completed the walk from the plane to the baggage area"
Pros: "Planes are old as dirt. Flight attendants were unfriendly and unaccommodating and finally, there was a 2.5 hour world wide data transfer systems failure on the last leg of my trip. Have a 12 hour day of surgery followed by appointments. Thank you United. Your airline is a joke and I'm ditching your stupid mileage credit card. I'd rather purchase magazines with my miles than fly with you ever again."
Cons: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "Delayed over an hour Changed gates after our initial flight time"
Pros: "Good flight overall would book again"
Cons: "Confiscated $20 bottle of hair product at security because I didn't want to check my carry on & then once at the gate forced me to check the bag anyways after not getting enough volunteers to check their carry on"
Pros: "The crew was very kind to everyone and it was a very pleasant flight!"
Pros: "Did make the connection to Chicago after running to the gate-last 2 to board before cabin was locked."
Cons: "Sat on the runway for approx an hour-no wear to park. Almost missed connection. If we weren't in good shape, would never have made it."
Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "Late flight and plane was not parked right at terminal in Chicago so it made for a long wait to get off the plane"
Cons: "Delayed flight caused me to miss connection and there was no wheelchair waiting for me as requested."
Cons: "Every flight I book with United gets delayed. My flight to my destination initally was delayed by over an hour causing me to miss my connecting flight. They re-booked my flight for the next morning so I missed my first evening of my trip. On the way home my flight was delayed 5 hours, turning my travel day into a 10 hour travel day... I will not be flying with united again."
Cons: "Old huge plane. Sat in back. Awful. Didnt move for what seemed like half an hour or more before we even started moving toward runway. Then did the same thing once we landed. Chlosterphobic and awful."
Pros: "All crew members were extremely friendly from boarding to being on the flight, even the captain. When there was a small delay from so control flight attendants had provided great resources for people with connecting flights (they even offered their own phones with the United app to look up connecting flight information). The little waffle treats that were handed out for free were delicious and a nice break from the pretzels other airlines usually pass out."
Cons: "The space between my seat and the seat in front was very small and I'm not a big person. My seat wouldn't even recline during the flight to give me just a few extra inches."
Pros: "Our flight experiencedetails mechanical issues to the weather radar. The agents sent us to customer service 12 gates away but they didn't know what was going on so they sent us to another customer service desk 21 gates away. Cathy of United finally called the gate(or plane) and found out that the problem was almost fixed...a hour later."
Cons: "Above comment contains my opinion of the first leg of the flight which only got worst as the connecting flight from Chicago to Providence was delayed and the plane was too big to land in Providence which caused us to have to catch a bus from Boston to Providence."
Pros: "Departed on time."
Cons: "Small plane...every seat taken and crowded."
Pros: "I liked the flight attendants that they were courteous and helpful"
Cons: "I am a fearful flyer and that is putting it mildly. I didn't like that the pilot didn't introduce himself and talk to us about the flight."
Cons: "The crew knew multiple people on the Hayden to Denver flights had very limited wait time to get from plane to terminal, but took forever in delivering our luggage for plane side pick up. When I asked the lady who came by to let us know of our gates, she pretty much told me, 'good luck'. I picked up my bag with 10 mins to spare to run from gate 86? to 24. I think more should have been done to accommodate. To be fair, the other lady who came by to let us know of our gates, offered to call my terminal and let them know I was on the way"
Pros: "To apologize for delays, they provided free access to directv."
Cons: "No gate agent support, people seated haphazardly in wrong seats and given no direction. Long delay once boarded, just sitting on ground. Turbulence the entire flight with almost no opportunity to use bathrooms or receive any service. This after rushing to gate and no chance to use bathroom."
Pros: "I know it's some sort of miracle. But there was only 40 people on an airbus. We all had about 3 seats each and we made full beds for ourselves."
Cons: "Boarded and left late for many to miss connections. No real help to get to new connection both on plane and off."
Cons: "Mechanical delay where the flight attendant kept saying "ten more minute" but it took nearly two hours. Don't overpromise and under deliver. Then we pushed back and got stuck on run way for another hour."
Cons: "Delays! Numerous delays! No assistance to help with changing missed connections or getting a hotel while stuck in Chicago."
Pros: "A everything was fine other than..."
Pros: "People at desk in Chicago very helpful"
Cons: "Terrible communication about flight info caused us to miss a flight. Limited desk hours made it a painful experience. I will never fly with Aer Lingus again!"
Cons: "Wifi didn't work"
Cons: "My flight was delayed 9 times with 9 different gate changes. I was supposed to arrive by 10PM and didn't land until 2 AM."
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "Plane was 45 minutes behind schedule, boarding, take off and arrival. Has to walk miles from gate to ground transportation at midnight when airport seemed dead."
Pros: "when at O'Hare, it was not a very long taxi to get to the gate"
Cons: "flight was delayed an hour; I felt very cramped in that small space for my seat"
Pros: "Didn't get beat up or dragged off flight so better than United"
Cons: "Woman at gate unable to provider updates with when delayed inbound flight be there and when we would be boarding Crew unable to provider estimate with new landing time so that we could update our ground pickup at destination Front bathroom broken on a 40+ row flight! Incredibly inconvenient for passengers towards front especially when they have their snack/drink cart out which no one wants anything from anyway because it all costs money. Get that out of the way! One attendant was rude to my wife and son when they were trying to get to the rear bathrooms. Crew did not know which baggage claim our bags would be at. Won't make the mistake of flying Frontier again because it's cheaper (rude service, delayed flights, no refreshments = cheaper). I recommend other travelers splurge for any other airline (maybe not United)"
Pros: "The cost of flight, pilot was very smooth."
Cons: "The people around me. But that isn't within your control .wasnt aware of extra cost to carry on . Because who doesn't fly with some kind of item."
Pros: "Flight crews, from the pilot to the attendants, were very polite & seemed responsive passenger needs. Boarding was ok - could always be better."
Cons: "My flight on Friday was delayed by 4 hours and my flight on Sunday was delayed by 2.5 hours - making what was supposed to be a relaxing weekend bookended by terrible and exhausting wait times at the airport - expensive too because I ended up having to eat at the airport for both. Didn't arrive at my final destination on Friday till 2am. The seats on the plane, I found, to be super uncomfortable."
Cons: "Flight 33 minutes late leaving. Did not realize Frontier now charges for everything. My mistake but realized I could have flown on American for same price after all extras added to ticket by Frontiet. Not likely to ever fly on Frontier again."
Pros: "Cheap fare"
Cons: "Flight 2 hours late"
Pros: "The people who work in the airport are so helpful and the people on the flight were so friendly. It is always a pleasure to fly Frontier."
Cons: "Terrible seats and service"
Pros: "When I was checking in online, I panicked initially about the extra costs for picking a seat and your luggage. Then my boyfriend showed me you can just evade it by clicking "next." Frontier allows you to carry on a "personal bag" for free and I was surprisingly able to bring a relatively big suitcase on board with no problems or questions asked. Also, checking in on website makes it seem like you'll be split up into random seats if you don't buy a seat but the boarding passes we printed at the airport were good seats next to each other. It's too bad that you have to pay for drinks, but I was able to get a cup of water for free and I understand that on cheap flights like this you can't expect to have free sodas."
Pros: "Flight was great, frontier staff is the best."
Pros: "Arrived early."
Cons: "Paying $60 for a carry on. The rudeness of the worker, Ida, was unacceptable."
Pros: "Flight boarded early, left early, landed early. I slept the whole time. It was perfect. The flight from Chicago to Denver was a different story...."
Pros: "Not much..liked on this airline."
Cons: "Pay extra for seat Resv, coffee/soda, carry on bag, check bag(cheaper than carry on), and the seats are like sitting on boards. Never again, I'll pay the extra for United or even Soutwest."
Pros: "On time, zone 1 boarding, lots of emergency exits"
Cons: "Paid extra for more leg room but the seat didn't recline at all, everything is an extra charge, loud plane, felt very cheap."
Cons: "It all started when I asked this flight attendant if he could remove this piece of gum from the seat back in front of me. He snapped at me and told me he was busy and he would do something about it once we were airborne. He then proceeded to laugh and yuk it up with another flight attendant for 5 minutes. So I rang the call button again thinking maybe another flight attendant might come check on me nope same guy. He walked up to me like it was our first interaction and said "is there something I can help you with?" I politely asked him again to remove the piece of gum from the seat. That's when it got crazy he started yelling at me saying if I wanted he would get the gate attendant and have me taken off the plane!! That's when another passenger got up and told the flight attendant to do his job and that he was acting way out of line. He huffed off and still refused to remove the disgusting and very unsanitary piece of gum from the seat back. By this time another flight attendant came running from the back of the plan asking what was wrong? When I told her she was overly apologetic and took care of it immediately. That flight attendant should be fired as he is dangerous and his attitude towards paying customers was disgusting!! Well the last thing I will say is now I know why I fly southwest."
Pros: "I loved being charged extra for carry on. It really shows you the quality from Frontier. They sure do know how to squeeze your pocket book. Good job..."
Cons: "After we paid our airfare we were charged for everything. Seat,bags, including carryons. Also they were charging for water and sodas on the flight. A $500 flight quickly turned into $1000. We were duped. Will never fly Frontier again!!"
Pros: "Got a good round trip into O'Hare at a good price."
Cons: "The luggage fees are a complete joke $40 a piece. Plus like in the not to far back several years ago no chocolate chip cookies and everything comes at a cost. Yes even coffee."
Cons: "8pm flight progressively delayed until 3am on outbound Ord to Den leg THen on return 7 pm flight delayed until 11:30pm on Den to Ord leg With kids this was absolute misery"
Cons: "I arrived at the airport 2 and 1/2 hours early for my flight... When I get there the line to just check a bag is swirling around the airport. I was disappointed I'd have to wait in said line but I went to the end to start the process of getting it done. About 30 mins into this line one of your employees starts calling off flights ones I'm assuming wee leaving soon so those people got to cut to the front of the line. A respectable thing but also very frustrating for the people actually waiting in line because it stopped movement completely. After they get those people out the line starts moving again but the one person controlling the line leaves and the people in the back feel untitled to bumrush forward and open up one of the crowd control polls and get to the front at which point everyone else is stuck to wait for the back of the line to go first. No one stopped them just let them go right ahead and make me wait. So at this point I've been at the airport for about an 1 hour and 15 mins. Not even through the line. As I approach the front finally an employee comes out and closes the crowd control line that made it possible for everyone to cut when I pointed that out they gave me excuses and were very rude. My flight was boarding in the next 45 mins and closing gates in the next hour or so. Next they start calling flights again ones that need to get through because they won't make their flight if they won't. My flight home is one of those. I'm at the front of the line so I figured I'd just be allowed to check my bag and get going but instead she lets people that I watched walk in less then 15 minutes ago go in front of me. I was furious I had been waiting 1 and 1/2 hours and people who showed up 15 mins ago are probably going to make MY flight while I wont.. I point this out to the lady and she says I'm just trying to get everyone to their flights and I do appreciate that but they were going about it all wrong. I finally checked my bag with probably 40 mins to spare before doors open to board and 1 hour before doors close. I turn the corner to look at security and feel defeat because I know there's no way I'll realistically make it through I turn around to talk to a supervisor about what she can do.. Get me on another flight? At least tell me they will work on their tactics of the bag check line. But instead the supervisor tells me that I have to try to get through security and that its my problem and they will deal with me at the gate if I don't make it. I hurry into line at security and we are not moving. All of a sudden the security line starts picking up because they brought the dogs out. I get through security with about 3 mins to spare I start running I get to my gate on the dot of gate close and the only reason I made it is because of delays due to maintenance which I had asked to reseive updates on my flight that wasn't given to me."
Cons: "The flight left 2.5 hours late and there wasn't a person at the desk until 1 hour before it left"
Pros: "There was no flight at all"
Cons: "Flight was canceled. No help at the desk. Ended up driving home"
Pros: "TSA Lines in Denver crazy long,thought I would miss boarding,anxiety provoking"
Pros: "Nothing it never happened."
Cons: "Flight was supposed to be Wednesday but was cancelled. WHen I tried to re-book it was pushed back until SATURDAY! Nearly 4 days later and I was left stranded with no place to stay in Henderson, Colorado. I missed my connecting trip and the one 2 week break I get during residency this year was ruined."
Cons: "hard seats"
Cons: "Hidden prices. Carry on bags-not told they cost $40 dollars extra. Not told until you book and paid for a flight that you really haven't gotten a seat until you pay more money. The seats are tight and uncomfortable with not much leg room. My family members are all tall and the seats are not designed to lean back or adjust in any way to our bodies. This airline does not nickel and dime you to death they go for $13 to $45 dollars for everything. Sneaky way to expand the cost of the flight."
Cons: "I got charged for selecting my seat. The additional cost was never mentioned before booking my trip. I won't fly frontier again!"
Cons: "Uncomfortable chairs,"
Cons: "Baggage fees are pure evil"
Pros: "The in flight staff was very friendly."
Cons: "The seats were kinda small."
Cons: "Hidden fees (carry on bag) that I was not expecting. No recline on seats. Seats were very uncomfortable. Tiniest arm rests ever."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours with no explanation. When we landed in Chicago, there was another issue; we sat on the plane for 30 minutes before being allowed to get off. No compensation or anything else offered."
Pros: "the flight seats are redesigned and they are lovely! No foul odors no tears and low profile!"
Cons: "Could be a little more room between seats."
Pros: "Every thing! It was a great experience!"
Pros: "The customer service was awful to work with."
Cons: "My flight was cnacelled and the customer service was awful"
Pros: "Boarding was easy and the staff was friendly!"
Cons: "The temperature on the airplane was poorly regulated, resulting in elevated temperature and discomfort for the entire flight."
Cons: "They lost my baggage, and didn't make an effort to get it to me the same day."
Pros: "It was great. Great fares."
Pros: "Chairs don't lean nothing"
Cons: "The crews rude. The chairs don't lean back u get a half of a tray. The only thing they have going for them is the price"
Cons: "Crew seemed irritated and came off very unpleasant and demeaning. Landed early, but taxi'd for about an hour until they reassigned a gate for our flight. Additionally, making our wait at baggage longer than 20 minutes as well. It was out of anyone's hands, but the 3.5 hour experience was accompanied by a screaming baby. Not my favorite flight."
Cons: "Frontier looks inexpensive but they charge for everything. When the flight was delayed by 2 hours, I got notification that the original time was back in place. I had to race through the snow to get to my flight only to find that it was delayed and then cancelled at 2 am. Not one Frontier representative was honest with us about any updates. I was delayed for 2 days without my luggage. I understand delays but Frontier knew we didn't have a plane coming for us so they should have sent us home instead of making us wait at the airport. I will never ever fly Frontier again."
Cons: "left at the airport in milwaukee on 12-28-15 had to fine my way back to ohare at my expense, without luggage, poor service, still wating for luggage"
Cons: "Frontier airlines is the worst airline."
Cons: "Absolutely horrible, your accommodations for a cancelled flight were a joke. Pretty much a good luck getting home we can get you to your destination 6 days later if you are willing to wait."
Pros: "Flight was on time and we got to our destination ok."
Cons: "No food and had to pay for drinks, seats and anything beyond the price of the ticket."
Cons: "Unnecessary delays about 1.5hrs waiting on tarmac without reasonable explanation."
Cons: "landing and waiting for a gate for 45 minutes. We were an on-time arrival without a gate? That is very poor planning and anticipation of flight needs."
Cons: "The seating, the company, the crew on the plane was very rude. Basically everything about the flight was terrible. I'll never spend money on this horrible company again."
Cons: "My flight was delayed 7 hours. I never recieved an e-mail letting me know of this even though I gave my email when I bought the tickets so that I would get updates on the flight. I checked the flight status before leaving my house at 2am and the flight was still on time. After driving 2 hours to the airport and going through security I found out that my flight was being delayed 7 hours and no representative was even at the gate to speak with. All I was given was one $14 meal voucher which didn’t even cover a full meal at the airport. It’s told that the issue was mechanical but I later found out that te first flight had been over booked and the 1pm flight didn’t have enough people on it so they made everyone on at 6am flight wait until 1pm to fly out. Once on the plane, the seats were hard and uncomfortable and the plane was cold. I am extremely disasiflied and will never use Spirit again."
Cons: "Terrible customer service. Delayed my flight 3.5 hours because they didn't have a crew. Slow to send updates. Had to pay an absorbent fare on another airling to make my connection. I wouldn't fly Spirit if they gave flights away."
Cons: "I booked one ticket from Denver to Baltimore, but found out I would be charged twice ($80 in total) for checking one bag. While i did have a layover in Chicago and this indeed was only one trip, Spirit denied this and said that since I had a layover, they were two separate tickets. This is unacceptable. My ticket said Chicago was a layover. It is absurd to be charged twice for baggage on one single trip. Last time I fly Spirit!!!"
Pros: "Everything went smoothly, we arrived early, crew was pleasant."
Cons: "Non-reclining seats."
Cons: "From website to check in the worst I've seen in the business in decades. The flight was fine. The marketing tone of light-hearted humor overlaid on bad everything leaves bad taste in my mouth."
Pros: "Fast flight!"
Cons: "My daughter felt sick and I wish the airlines have free soda pop as it would have helped her stomach and nausea."
Pros: "No entertainment or food. Don't know how to say N/A on those sections."
Cons: "Prechwck on my computer was a pain. Had rTo get a PIN number (or some #), that I didn't have and the link wouldn't send it. Spent way too much time trying to check in on my computer. Everything else was smooth sailing."
Cons: "Paying for carry on size bags is lame"
Pros: "The flight was very cost effective."
Cons: "There was a presentation made to all passengers midflight trying to get everyone to sign up for a credit card in return for a "free" flight on the airline, presented as a gift. As a captive audience member, I found this very unprofessional, especially since the airline first proclaimed that all passengers could have a free flight then appended their statement with "as long as you sign up for a Spirit credit line." I also don't like the $10 charge for a printed boarding pass at the airport from Spirit; I understand the concept of modularizing costs, but there is no way the act of printing a pass for a passenger costs the airline remotely close to $10. It is a clear attempt to capitalize on a customer's forgetfullness."
Pros: "The pilot got the plane to Chicago over 30 minutes early."
Cons: "Spirit allows passengers to bring a purse for free everything else is an additional charge. The plane was really dirty."
Cons: "Flight was from DFW to NYC. 2 Crew members were good but flight attendant with first name Truitt was rude, slovenly dressed and had poor customer service"
Pros: "They were friendly and entertaining."
Pros: "I love that the crew is genuinely warm and welcoming. They were not scripted in their safety demo or any of the in-flight announcements/chatter. Very friendly, helpful and entertaining. First time I've ever heard so many passengers laughing!"
Pros: "Very inexpensive."
Cons: "Had to pay for a carry on. Absurd."
Pros: "It left on time"
Cons: "-bag and seat fees came out to 80% of the ticket price, effectively doubling the kayak price, thanks!"
Pros: "The staff Was very kind"
Cons: "It's not to confortable"
Pros: "Crew and service were good. Bag feed"
Cons: "Bag fees were outrageous."
Cons: "Horrible communication. Delayed flights and even canceled my trip before I even got there. Spent 17 hrs traveling from one airport back to the initial one I came from. Didn't have any other flights to offer and still not sure about my refund. Small seats in airplanes and everything costs money. Never will I spend money towards this airline again."
Cons: "Just a bare bottom airline plan on spending $80-$100 more for seats and bags!!"
Pros: "Flight was overall enjoyable."
Cons: "Middle seat gets both arm rests. This social-guideline should be enforced as I spent my flight with a broken hand keeping my hands and elbows tucked in. Only a minor issue, however."
Pros: "the larger front row seats"
Cons: "booking through kayak. i had to pay extra to get the checked bag and front row seat on spirit through their website (which would not allow me as it was apparently confused by booking through kayak) and had to use their Manila Philippines call center which was barely helpful"
Pros: "Not much"
Pros: "The crew were wonderful - funny, efficient, friendly and helpful."
Cons: "First of all, you pay for every little thing. So the cheap ticket price is deceiving - added $170.00 just to carry on 2 bags, check 2 bags and get seats together for my son and I! Checking in was a little confusing and the staff unfriendly and obtuse. There is surprisingly little leg room and seat room. We landed early and then waited on the tarmac for a gate for so long, we were 30 min late!"
Pros: "The crew was super nice and funny."
Cons: "the space was crowed."
Pros: "Cheap base cost for ticket."
Cons: "Total cost ends up being >>>> Southwest after having a bag or two, whether it's checking in or carrying on. They charge for everything and everything is up charged so much - want a carry on? 55$. want to check it? 50$. realize that you want to carry it on but forgot to pay because you did it online? 100$ It's kind of like the Oprah of airline hidden fees. Start off at $15-20 cheaper than everyone else. Then all of a sudden - you get a bag charge, you get a bag charge, YOU ALL GET A BAG CHARGEEEEE!!"
Pros: "It was FUN!"
Cons: "Due to the long line we missed our flight, even after getting there 1 hour and 45 mins early."
Pros: "There were no delays and boarding/deplaning were quick. Pilot updated us on arrival times and weather conditions."
Cons: "Seating is tight - 3 rows, aisle, then 3 rows."
Pros: "On time performance. Easy boarding. Polite, funny crew."
Cons: "Paying $100 to carry on a bag! Paying $20 for a seat. Paying for a glass of water. No TV or WiFi. And the worst part, non-recliner seats that are so thin, and with shrunken leg room, that I could feel the knees of the passenger behind me digging into my lumbar on all 4 flight segments."
Pros: "Low initial ticket price but add-on costs for EVERYTHING. Constant selling on board by crew. Can't get through online check-in without a barrage of additional offerings. Not worth the trouble and not any less expensive than other airlines."
Cons: "Lack of alternate options once my second leg was cancelled. Spending the night in O'Hare. Waiting for 90 minutes on the runway for take off."
Pros: "Both flights late, amazingly little room, pretty much amateurish all the way around."
Pros: "Got there safe"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 3 hours"
Cons: "4 hr delay both ways"
Cons: "The check in line was ridiculously long. I pre-checked and paid for my bag on line and still had to wait in a long line."
Cons: "Baggage fee"
Cons: "the hidden costs that add up to the price of your competitors' prices. It's deceptive and annoying."
Cons: "my flight was cancelled in Chicago for bad weather offered to fly to NY 2 days later with no help 2 hours later took off to NY on different airline"
Pros: "Crew was nice enough."
Cons: "Smallest seat I have ever been in. Bravo to their engineers for figuring out how to pack us in there so efficiently. You get what you pay for. At this point, I really shouldn't be surprised by the delay or discomfort."
Pros: "The staff was friendly despite frustrated passengers"
Cons: "The seats are small and dangerous, they are not merely "cramped"."
Pros: "Typical air flight. Seating arrangement is luck of the draw."
Cons: "From the lack of representatives and overall procedure to board the plane, I could not be more disappointed and annoyed. The flight attendants talk too much on the over head speaker, the seats too tight (even for me at 5'3-120lbs), the fees are outrageous. It's worth to buy at a more reputable airline. I arrive 13 minutes before my flight takes off and the door closes 15 minutes, so be prepared. Especially since it's the representatives and broken kiosk that make you run late. Now, since there is one Spirit plane I have to wait an additional 24 hours to head back to Chicago. I've now been here 48 hours past my stay. Save yourself the headache. Don't do it. I don't foresee this company staying in business very long. It's my own fault. I didn't listen to my friends. You get what you pay for."
Pros: "If u can travel with just a backpack it's perfect. I'm low maintenance."
Cons: "no carryons, the hour layover"
Cons: "I flew a different airline out to Colorado and my baggage cost me nothing because I had a backpack and normal sized roll-aboard bag. Flying with Spirit I had the choice of paying $55 to take the roll-aboard with me on board or checking it for $50. That is double the checking price of any other airline I have flown with. Then I get on board the plane and the seats are so close together that I can't move. I am not over-weight, but I am tall and it was so uncomfortable. And I wasn't the only one because the person behind me kept bumping my seat trying to get more comfortable and the person in front of me kept jumping back in their seat trying to get more comfortable. And, to not even get water for free? These tickets weren't that cheap."
Cons: "The airline as a whole should be ashamed of themselves. Worst customer service we have ever come across. We will never fly Spirit or recommend Spirit to friends, family, co-workers and worst enemy. Pay the extra and use any other airline."
Pros: "Extras were so expensive that this cost more than Frontier, United, or American."
Cons: "Beware! No one will tell you about the baggage fees ($40 checked, $45 carry-on) until you check-in! Also, they will not give you any receipt for your purchases!"
Pros: "Flight attendent Quinten was so friendly and fun!"
