Delta is my go-to for years on the SEA-AMS run. They are generally always on time and often come in early on the flight back. Seems like the food quality has gone down a bit over the last two years, and I was disappointed in both meals on this flight, but I will continue to book Delta every time on this route.
After we boarded the plane, we sat on the tarmac for 45 minutes for the airplane to “burn off fuel.” It was warm, humid, and uncomfortable. Because it was a smaller plane, there was nothing but water, coffee, and tea offered for refreshments. Also, we were the last arriving flight at the Fort Wayne airport for the night, and my husband had checked a special item in his bag, so it couldn’t be put on the baggage claim. We waited at an empty Delta counter for over twenty minutes for someone to give us his bag. I’ve had great experiences on Delta flights many times, but this one was subpar.
Kay is the epitome of greatness; she and her coworker really made a quick flight more desirable. Kindness is their portion and that’s amazing to me!!!
Wifi extremely slow. Not worth the money.
Great flight attendants. Super smooth & beautiful flight.

Cons: "Seats are small and not good for one's neck"
Pros: "There were 12 delays. No help and I slept overnight in the airport. Worst experience I will never fly delta again"
Pros: "Amazing crew and seating. Worth the upgrade to premium."
Cons: "I’m tired of Delta gate agents “requiring” those in Main cabin 3 gate checking bags!! Both legs of the trip it came to a point they said it’s mandatory to gate check all remaining bags. We get on board and there’s plenty of overhead space. Even a flight attendant mentioned how empty the bins were!"
Cons: "Perfect travel day! No issues whatsoever"
Cons: "Everything. Awful plane, seats and service"
Cons: "The floor of the aircraft was cold!"
Cons: "Was not allowed to check in even tho flight was delayed. Horrible!"

Cons: "Boarding was a bit unpleasant when we had to stand in a crowd before the shuttle came."
Cons: "Left 30 minutes late from SLC."
Pros: "Was in exit row & most sandwiches were no longer available. Poor planning since there were 15 more rows after me. Snacks& nuts were only other choices for 3 hr flight. Flight attendants couldn’t care less."

Pros: "Everyone very friendly and courteous."
Cons: "Snacks are very small quantity and often stale"
Pros: "Friendly, efficient"

Pros: "My flight was canceled but Delta rebooked me on a flight leaving at about the same time as my original flight, which arrived just a little later than originally anticipated"
Cons: "My original flight was canceled"
Cons: "The crew was late so we were delayed two hours. I find that extremely infuriating when you are a passenger and have to show up two hours before your flight. I also would lose my job if I was two hours late for a client."
Cons: "Due to the earthquakes, the film festival I was going to was cancelled. Ten days prior to the flight I called AeroMexico to cancel and they said there would be a cancellation penalty, which was fine. When I tried to redeem my credit, they said there was also an additional "No-show fee" even though I called to cancel 10 days prior, which left a total of $70 credit after all their penalties. I called and emailed to complain but they did nothing but pass me to someone else who was equally unhelpful. I will never fly AeroMexico for any reason in the future."
Pros: "The price."
Cons: "Turbulence was intense and scary. We didn’t get our drink service because it was unsafe for the flight attendant to walk the isle. The leg room seemed a lot smaller than expected."
Pros: "That they served a nice snack/sandwich and or cheese platter...nice touch...also nice selection of free movies"
Cons: "When the person in front of you put their seat back you didn't have a lot of room."
Cons: "Flight was changed. Missed an important event"
Pros: "For a short flight, they gave it drinks and snacks."
Pros: "Crew was courtesy"
Cons: "1hour delay from departing LAX runway - not good"
Cons: "There is just not enough leg room for a flight that long and the seats don't recline enough to be comfortable unless you upgrade and the tickets were already overpriced."
Cons: "We were arbitrarily re-seated due to equipment changes, back and forth and lost our original seat selection even though we wound up on a plane with the original configuration. An international call wait of 1.5 hours was required to just get us back into the economy plus section that we had originally paid for, Amsterdam check-in was chaotic. In-plane staff was not at all helpful with our desire to get seats on the outside rows of our section."
Pros: "Flight was delayed for over 6 hours. Not an ideal way to spend the day."
Pros: "Seat and headrests especially were nice"
Cons: "Very bumpy rides in both cases"
Pros: "Very Comfy plane."
Pros: "Nothing in particular was that great. Just very low average"
Cons: "Old smelly plane. Bad entertainment options."
Cons: "Flight was delayed over an hour resulting missing connecting flight"

Cons: "The boarding "red shirt" saved us. We are a band on tour and thanks to her we made the gig"
Pros: "Flight attendant was excellent and pilots did a great job with weather"
Pros: "On time, efficient boarding, no lines or delays. Attendants not as top notch as on the domestic leg but we're friendly and efficient. Loved the seat back entertainment options, watched a movie, listened to 2 podcasts, and enjoyed some excellent blues music. All while tracking he flight progress. Made the 6 hour flight go by quickly and not mind the bumpy air in the tropics."
Pros: "Seats were nice"
Cons: "Airplane interior needs updating, old seats."
Pros: "Captain and crew were dealt a 50 minute delay and still got is to Atlanta 10 minutes early. If I could gove them a cash tip I would."
Pros: "Our flight was cancelled and we had to buy $447 worth of Southwest tickets to get home. Our luggage is still missing, by the way."
When my group was called on the speaker I was the first to board. It made a difference on overhead luggage space being available. Otherwise the flight was nice and the crew was friendly..
The nicest thing was that boarding and departure went as scheduled, with no delay. It is a rarity now.
The plane was very hot. Something wrong with AC? People were getting overheated. The girl behind me got sick from the heat and vomited.
Cons: "Just seemed chaotic. Plane super late departing. Baggage pick up was a nightmare."
Cons: "Seat very narrow for an upgrade"
Pros: "Good seat. Good films."
Cons: "A broader range of free snack types would be nice."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Not being delayed 3 hours"
Cons: "Maintenance issues which led to a flight delay- understandable But we have been on the plane waiting to taxi. The person talking said it will take “3-4 minutes” to deplane...it’s taken about 45 min... Don’t overpromise and under deliver"
Pros: "Good price and new clean aircraft."
Cons: "Reclining seats."
Cons: "More room I pay for main cabin It feels it was just the regular"
Pros: "CREW WAS GREAT AT BOARDING GATE AND IN FLIGHT."

Pros: "Nothing-never made it."
Cons: "3 flight cancellations."
Pros: "Very good crew."
Cons: "Hate the kiosk check in"

Pros: "Friendly staff,good food,entertainment was also top notch Staff helped me a lot;I am a nervous flyer and they checked on me regularly"
Cons: "Could have used a bit more room but I was not to squished"
Pros: "The direct flight was great and made up for the rescheduled flight time in Memphis."
Cons: "Original Flight did not depart on time."
Cons: "21/2 delay....no explanariin. But flight attendants did not show up until 9:15 and yet plane had been on the ground since 8:30. Seems poor planning on airline’s part"
Pros: "Our plane was late getting to the gate. They kept us informed and turned it around pretty quickly. There were storms between Chicago and Rochester so we were rerouted. As a result the hour flight was an hour and a half. The pilot kept us informed and it was a very smooth flight. So even though I was over an hour late arriving I so appreciated the communications and the safer route. AA seems to be communicating more than other airlines and I appreciate that. Flying is absolutely no fun anymore so you take what you can get for the positives."
Cons: "WiFi wasn’t working so I couldn’t communicate my late arrival to family picking me up."
Cons: "While my experience was excellent, I must acknowledge that the practice of charging significantly more for some seats is outrageous. I was happy with the (free) seats I had."
Pros: "Perfect from start to finish"
Pros: "There was ample food."
Cons: "No individual tvs or phone chargers or in flight wifi available. Flight was delayed. Luggage was emptied onto a different carousel instead of the one that was posted. There was no announcement made of the carousel change."
Pros: "Things went as they should have got a 2 hour flight."
Cons: "The inside of the plane around the air vents definitely could use some cleaning."
Pros: "Entertainment was great"
Cons: "Wish the seats could've been a bit more comfortable"
Pros: "Mostly everyrhing"
Cons: "Food was so so"
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "No room to sit comfortably on an 8 hr flight ."
Pros: "The flight left on time - I do appreciate that."
Cons: "We were forced to check our Uppababy Vista stroller at EWR departures that we hoped to check at the gate. Needless to say this made it difficult to get our toddler through security. At baggage claim only half our stroller was there - they had disconnected the seat from the wheels. Luckily we spotted what looked like a similar frame to ours at the gate when we landed. It then took another forty minutes for the baggage claim office person to go through security, to the arrival gate and back to baggage claim."
Cons: "Rude American Airlines staff. Flight delay of more than 7 hours. No accommodation given. One of the dirtiest airplane and traveling vehicle ever flown."
Pros: "Comfy/roomy seats, friendly staff, female pilot!!"
Cons: "It was freezing and blankets were not available. It is typically cold on flights but this felt like sitting in a freezer. That is the o not reason I gave 4 stars and a 3 star for comfort"
Pros: "How expedite everything was and how helpful the aa personnel at the airport were. Flight attendants were efficient and friendly."
Cons: "The seats are too tight."
Pros: "I flew Tokyo to Vegas and the entertainment was great."
Cons: "They cancelled my flight vis lax and put me on a flight vis Dallas. That added about 7 hours to my journey. Then they sit on the tarmac for 50 minutes doing nothing on both of the two flights."
Cons: "I'm still limping slightly from not having hardly any legroom period but it's just a fact that you're playing too not designed for people like me"
Pros: "THE SEATS WERE COMFORTABLE AND CREW AND VERY ATTENTIVE."
Pros: "I fly this route with American pretty often. The cabin crew was good. Everything else seemed sub par."
Cons: "Our take off was delayed, officially due to fueling the plane, but if the plane wasn't fueled ahead of time, someone failed to do their job properly. Also, while I'm starting to think that A320s just suck mechanically for landing (they always seem to land harder than a 737), this one seemed a little extra rough."
Cons: "Two legs flying up from Norfolk to Boston delayed. Two legs flying home the next day also delayed."
Pros: "See above. Worst flight in 60 years of flying.Their systems failed at every point-- changing flights without carrying over seat reservations "Too close to flight time""
Cons: "Attitude of many employees--" tough on you, suck it up. stuff happens". poor communication re flight change, rejection of AA Advantage Mastercard to pay for baggage check and get boarding pass and seat assignment. Rerouted me by 200 yards to TSA checkpoint I could see was 30 yards away. When flight arrived in SFO the arrivals board never showed it and there was no carousel shown for checked baggage. I finally had to go to customer service, where attendant just pointed to my bag on the floor with lots of others from the flight, shrugged, no apology, and chewed her gum a little faster before turning her back."
Cons: "Fight was cancelled as reported a light near the exit sign was out. Had to sit in the airport 8 hours a regular delay of the this route."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "When we tried to check in there was not reservation because flight was with American not satam - luckily we figured it out"
Cons: "Make it clear that ticketing airline might not be the actual airline!!"
Pros: "Last-minute price"
Cons: "The 3 1/2 hour layover"
Cons: "There was no more room on the plane so me and 10 other passengers had to wait 3 hrs for next flight."
Cons: "the flight had a two hour delay which put me into Orlando very late."
Pros: "Really smooth flight. Landing and take off were comfortable, and seats were spacey."
Cons: "Lady flight attendant could've smiled. Found myself hoping that all is well with her."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and fairly efficient, I imagine thanks to ground crew at PHX."
Cons: "Plane was seriously dated. Interior seems to be untouched in the last ten years. Seats creaked and squeaked, easily could have been remedied with a few man hours of care to the plane. I pray that the state of the interior of this American Airlines flight does not reflect the condition of the plane's vital flight systems."
Flight was delayed about 20 mins, but they kept it “on time” status until 6:02, flights was supposed to leave at 6:01. I just wish they had been more upfront about the delay from the start
Delay was exhausting do to lack of employees.
Flight was delayed over an hour
Boarding and flight were great. Bag check-in was very late due to some sort of computer delay...this caused long lines delays to get to security. Crew seemed experienced and efficient. Thank you! Of course, the price of the ticket is what allowed us to fly with you - thank you!
Flight was very good, no problem
Pros: "Boarding was easy, there was sufficient leg room"
Cons: "No snacks unless you want to pay an arm and a leg. One stewardess snapped at me when I tried to touch a bag of chips to move it and see what was available. She could’ve been a lot friendlier! I had no way of seeing what was on the cart from my seat and had to rely on her to tell me what was available. After I bought something and she passed by, I saw something else I’d rather have but it was too late by then….and she didn’t list it as an option. In flight movies would’ve been nice, too."
Cons: "Wish we had arrived on time we are an hour and a half late"
Pros: "Seat accommodations were great Gate assignments at airport should be confirmed before the plane arrived"
Cons: "The ticket lady was rude just nasty and upset for no reason."
Cons: "I would have liked to have a drink of water for free!!"
Pros: "Comfort nice cool cabin on boarding"
Cons: "No complaints with airline but flight was a little ruff on approach made me a little nauseous."
Pros: "Everything was perfect. New plane, super clean!! Even though the seats don't recline, they're still quite comfortable. I love how wide the aisle is...people have plenty of room to move around."
Cons: "Be on time, 3 hour delay."
Pros: "Our plane was struck by lightning and therefore not able to fly, so we were deboarded and left to wait until a rescue flight could come in from Boston. Over the course of 4 hours, the crew kept us updated with every little change and were all very helpful! Once we were able to board the rescue plane, the crew handed out complimentary candy and drinks to help ease the wait times. Highly recommended!"
Cons: "Lousy airline. Left gate late and unfriendly crew. Wanted to charge me for carry on."
Pros: "The check-in line moved quickly and our representative was very friendly and encouraged us to download the app rather than pay for boarding passes. Good experience all around"
Pros: "Everyone from desk to gate to crew were very friendly. I like alla carte airlines for thier value. I dont need a free soda for and extra $100 ticket price."
Cons: "Needs better organization during boarding. Everyone piles up near the gate. Thry can copy Southwest and make the process smoother."
Pros: "Crew was friendly, seats were very tight. Have to pay for water."
Pros: "Like the small airport quick boarding!"
Cons: "Not lots of leg room, no reclining seats, bummer everything costs extra even water. But ok for price"
Pros: "the pilot"
Cons: "checking in , it seemed like no one knew what they were doing."
Cons: "Both original and 2nd plane had malfunctions which caused extensive delays and doubled boarding time"
Pros: "Although we were late to our gate, the Allegiant staff made sure that we were able to board our plane on time."
Cons: "Flight delayed 3 hours coming in and 5 hours going back. This is unacceptable. I will never fly Allegiant Airlines again."
Pros: "No complications and efficient boarding"
Cons: "The people that stand up when the plane stops even though they are going to have to wait till the door opens and everyone in front of them has to get off before they do."
Cons: "I flew to my "surprised" 50th bday party with family and to meet more family. The aircraft problems overheated engine, caused us to get out of the plane, move all luggages and wait foe a new plane that also had to be cooled off before reboarding. We were tired and hungry. Missed my bday with family. Very very disappointed."
Cons: "7 hour delay. Giving us delays in increments so we couldn't make a decision to leave."
Pros: "Nothing. We were scheduled to fly back to Vegas at 7:07 then delayed to 8:30 then 10 pm then 11:25 pm now 1:15 am. This is unbelievable, unacceptable and ridiculous! And I have to work the next day. This is unacceptable! I just received another update that now we're leaving at 1:45 am . Please do not, again do not use Allegheny EVER again!!"
Cons: "So many delays. This airline is unreliable, unprofessional! Ridiculous! Please read my comments above. Do not use Allegiant!"
Cons: "2 hour delay, plus a filthy plane with bloody toilet seat, completely bathroom fail."
Pros: "Loved their crew and the way they contacted you over the internet to remind you to check in, etc."
Cons: "NOTHING BAD TO SAY-a 3 1/2 hour flight on a comfortable, well piloted plane beats a connection from LAX that ends up being 8 hours for travel that day all hollow!"
Pros: "We were supposed to have boarded for 5:00, flight was at 6pm. They were missing 1 crew member and could board the plane. She showed up, then they made a announcement that the Oakland flight will be delayed till 8:10 takeoff. I was able to get on a flight to Stockton Airport without problem. They wouldnt tell me what was wrong, and i didnt want to chance that it was the last dlight to Oakland and went with Stockton. The flight was good, you have to pay for your water."
Cons: "They would tell me the problem with the plane."
Cons: "The flight got cancelled - trip had to be completely rearranged."
Pros: "I arrived less then 5 hours late"
Cons: "No free peanuts, no free pritzells,no tv show, no movie"
Pros: "At least I arrived to Oakland eventually. A one hour flight turned into a 7 hour wait and flight"
Cons: "7 hours from Vegas to Oakland. I could have driven. I deserve a reufind voucher"
Cons: "I paid more to be upfront so I could get off plane faster but there was no room in overhead because people had put their carry on and personal items. I also didn't like that drinks weren't complimentary, especially beings that it was a 3 hour flight."
Pros: "On time. Easy boarding and off loading. Nice staff"
Cons: "The seat. The people. The drinks. The efficiency. The price."
Pros: "The crew was exceptionally friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Seats don't recline."
Pros: "Staff was extremely helpful and friendly. Plane was very clean and more spacious than any other airline coach seats. We departed on time and arrived 15 minutes early at our destination. Flight price was hundreds of dollars cheaper and the only airline which offered non-stop service from nyc to Knoxville, TN."
Cons: "Honestly i have no complaints."
Pros: "Really smooth flight, quick and easy to Las Vegas..."
Cons: "Paying for checked luggage..."
Pros: "I didn't like anything about them"
Cons: "They made me pay 100 dollars for two bags that would of fit under the seat"
Cons: "Delayed. Unprofessional. Attendant laughing while reciting safety announcement."
Pros: "I sat in the front row so that I had leg room. It was worth the extra 20 bucks."
Cons: "No champagne."
Pros: "Having to bug hotel staff to make sure to print boarding passes to avoid a $5 charge for each...having to pay for carry-on bags in advance and then unstuff them in the cramped aisles while boarding because the overhead compartments were too small...flight delays on each leg of the trip...staff that seemed lobotomized...seats that have a bar jamming into your lower back and don't recline.... etc., etc, etc, etc, Plus stupid coporate name and a logo that's hard on the eyes! ALLEGIANT SUCKS from its nose to its tail fin."
Pros: "Replace 1 star ratings with na since offered."
Cons: "Wondering why my initial flight to vegas from oakland wasnt up for review. That experience was terrible. It was delayed 4 hours with no explanation or other compensation. I'll do my best not to fly allegiant again."
Pros: "Spanish speaking lady employee at the counter very helpful."
Cons: "More space to breath. More comfortable seats."
Pros: "For the price it's a good option. Just be aware of uncomfortable seats and cramped conditions ahead of a long flight."
Pros: "Plenty of leg room and very helpful staff"
Cons: "Sat on the tarmac for two and a half hours due to mechanical issues. Happy to know everything eventually was in working order, but didn't enjoy having my legs fall asleep while waiting"
Cons: "That they charged me $65 for a carry on bag ..the person told me an amount went to the machine get a card get charged $5 extra for the card go to the counter they tell me a diffrent amount have to get a diffrent card more money..i made a facebook post to never fly with this company ever again"
Pros: "Seat was okay. Flight Crew was okay. I got where I needed to."
Cons: "Either Frontier or the third party I purchased my ticket through on Kayak (Kiwi.com) sold me a ticket as if it were a complete flight from point A to B with a layover in between. In reality however, it was two totally separate flights which required me to go to the Frontier ticketing counter upon my arrival at my layover destination, get a ticket printed for my second flight, pay to recheck my bag a second time ($45 x2 = $90 which was total BS), go through security again (also BS) only to walk back clear to the other side of the airport where I just was. To top it all off, our flight took off late and upon arrival we didn't even have a jet bridge available. So, all of the passengers had to get off on the tarmac and wait to be bussed from wherever we were all the way to the main terminal. Then they switched the baggage claim caracul on us. What a mess. This will probably be the last time I buy a ticket on Kayak, Kiwi and possibly even Frontier."
Cons: "I was a passenger on a Frontier flight from DIA to TMA on 5/13/2018. My luggage was checked and a tag indicating the bag was to go all the way to the final destination (there was a stop in St. Paul, Minnesota) was securely placed on the suitcase. However when I arrived at the Trenton airport my bag did not. There were no Frontier airlines agents on duty so I filled out a form given to me by one of the airport staff. When I checked the Frontier website today it said to fill out a Frontier Lost and Found report. Upon doing so I received an email saying finding a lost bag could take weeks and that after a month they consider the bag permanently lost. No offer or process was provided for compensation for lost bag or the items within. This is unacceptable! I had prescription medication in my bag that's not easily refilled."
Pros: "Great crew, easy boarding."
Cons: "Zero entertainment (no TVs, WiFi, inflight magazines or electrical outlets), very small tray tables, pretty uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "Great flight from start to finish. Had boarding passes, so easy, Quick luggage checkin, easy boarding, and easy, Quick luggage retrieval at end of flight."
Pros: "great flight crew the crew on the flight out to Denver was funny and kept even the safety instructions entertaining"
Cons: "no complaints"
Pros: "2 hour delay"
Cons: "Long wait"
Pros: "The flight from San Diego to Denver was great, the members of the crew were very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The flight from Denver to Detroit was extremely late causing a huge delay in the entire process. Once we finally got ready to takeoff, we had to pull in yet again because there were passengers on the plan that weren't scheduled to go to Detroit.. all of these problems are somewhat understandable, but the crew FAILED TO EMPATHIZE WITH US AT ALL. They even made smart remarks about people going to the bathroom when we pulled back in... I feel some of them acted extremely unprofessional and I truly never want to fly with this company again."
Pros: "Nice crew."
Cons: "Our flight was supposed to leave at 6:40 PM but was bumped back until after 8 PM due to storms in the landing city however two other airlines in the same airport heading to the same city left on time."
Cons: "When you have to check in to get a lower baggage fee than if you check in at the ticket counter is totally unfair and a very poor business practice. If a friend hadn't told me that I needed to check in online, I would have preferred to check in at the counter. Not knowing what baggage prior to packing, I needed to change my carry-on to a checked bag. So I looked on the Internet for a customer service telephone number, which I found, but it's the wrong number.... Very frustrating!!!! At that point, I wished that I didn't book my flight with Frontier Airlines. Then I had to pay extra money to choose a seat, pay $2.00 for a drink . I definitely know that your customer service is bare bones, and the low price for a flight comes with annoying high price to pay. I will certainly think twice before flying with Frontier Airlines again."
Cons: "Spend the extra money to get treated like a human. The savings aren't even that great after they nickel and dime you for literally everything. You save pennies to have the worst flying experience of your life."
Pros: "Crew was awesome!"
Cons: "Had to pay for each of my bags! So much for a cheap flight. I could have flown First class on American for what I just paid"
Pros: "The price. Nothing super bad."
Cons: "Delay leaving due to a door sensor. Got in an hour late, which was annoying. Limited, expensive menu anyway, but was out of what I wanted (jerky). Biggest complaint is the seats not reclining-that's really uncomfortable for a 3 hour flight.2nd biggest complaint is that having to pay for my seat and 1 carry on feels like a bait and switch over the ticket price."
Pros: "Super professional, courteous, and helpful flight staff. Seat was uncomfortable, but it was a short flight, so I had a weird plastic bottle of wine and cared less."
Pros: "Both flights landed early and the pilot flew very smoothly (I tend to get air sick so I appreciated this). Easy to get on and off plane, no fuss. Great price ($250) to fly from DC to Denver, nonstop. Can't complain."
Cons: "The seats are very thin and feel like school bus seats, so it was a pretty uncomfortable couple of hours. Also, the check in at the kiosk is confusing and misleading. We were very prepared and did everything ahead of time (paid for our checked bag, knew that we'd have to pay for a cary on bag, etc.) but then when we checked in it asked us if we had a checked bag we needed to pay for. We doubted ourselves for a moment and almost paid for our bag, AGAIN, even though we had already done it. This payment should have shown up on our account and we should not have been asked about paying for our bag, that is confusing and misleading."
Cons: "You have to pay for hot tea, coffee when every other airline it's complimentary. Along with paying for carry on bags. Ridiculous!"
Pros: "check in crew were very pleasant and helpful, making the check in process very smooth despite multiple people, skis,etc. You are getting nickeled-and died- but I planned for that in advance, and despite that it was still a value compared to other airlines."
Cons: "seats are uncomfortable. If flights get cancelled (mine were not!), you are screwed because Frontier does not partner with other "sister" airlines, so you will have to wait a long time for a rescheduled flight or change airlines on your own dime"
Pros: "At least I did not have to wait on the tarmac for 4.5 hours like I did in Denver."
Cons: "the aft steward was a power-hungry tyrant. He kept telling me to get into my seat which was occupied. When that could not be resolved, he told me to get out of the aisle so others could board. I was in the penultimate row and the people in my row needed to move to the last row. So who was I blocking from boarding? Also, the flight was extremely turbulent and not one seat in the last 4 rows had barf bags. As I deplaned, it looked as if 10-12 others did not have them either - - good luck cleaning that plane. The seats are sized for 5-yr olds. And lastly - you stick it to passengers with all the non-disclosed fees."
Pros: "Thank God the flight was short!"
Cons: "Just about everything. The initial purchase of the plane tickets was what I thought was a deal. But this airline nickels and dimes you to death. We had to pay to check a bag. We had to pay for a soda. Only water is complimentry. We had to pay for the very uncomfortable seats we sat in. Really...what was the plane ticket for? By the way, if you wait to choose your seat/and check your bags...the price goes up. In the end it would have been cheaper to fly any other airlines. I'd never fly frontier again."
Pros: "The price is unbeatable. The crew was nice."
Cons: "The schedule (depart at midnight) and the length (2.5 hours) make it a brutal experience. It is too short to get some sleep, and with the time difference you arrive in the "morning." However, when you arrive in Charlotte you will have to wait for everything to open (car rentals, Starbucks, etc.), as the entire airport is sleeping. It is cheap, but is is rough."
Cons: "Surprised to pay $45 for carry on! Surprised at the small seats and no leg room and no reclining seats. Very uncomfortable. On leaving the plane, the line was slow, when we got up closer to the front we saw why....the clean up crew had started and was in the isle. Very odd....and inconsiderate. Will not fly on frontier again."
Pros: "Flight arrived on time"
Cons: "Boarding was disorganized, customer support seemed very unknowledgable at the check in counter, very disappointing overall"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "I had to pay separately for my seat after purchasing my flight as well as having to pay for a carry on bag separately... don't try to make me pay for stuff I need like that!"
Cons: "All of the self check-in kiosks were down. Only two people were working the desks. The check-in line was out the door and it took hours to see a representative. Then, the barcode Frontier provided on the boarding pass did not scan with the TSA. I was denied access to screening and sent back up to Frontier's desks. If it wasn't for the generosity of several people in the line, I would have had to wait another several hours before seeing an agent. The inexpensive ticket is not worth it, especially considering one must pay for a carry on. Absolutely the worst experience I've ever had flying."
Pros: "Check in and the security screen took an hour and a half, flight delayed an hour in beautiful weather. NO TSA Pre-Check at Frontier's home base."
Pros: "The fare from Denver to Portland Oregon was $83.00"
Cons: "The website didn't seem user friendly to me. I had to call Customer Service to be able to check in. I wasn't able to get my boarding pass on my smartphone very easily. My suitcase was 15 lbs over and I had to pay $75.00 on top of the initial $25.00. There were no complimentary drinks. And the flight was delayed and the personnel didn't know what was going on and wasn't able to inform us. The online seat assignment was confusing to figure out."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for over 4 hours due to operational issues (not weather or maintenance). The gate representative didn't keep us informed of the issues and when he did, he was usually wrong. There is a surcharge for everything from carry-on fees to beverages on the plane. The plane itself was uncomfortable with uncushioned seats. Let's just say that if I had to choose between a Frontier flight and a Delta flight that was $400 more, I will choose the Delta. Same goes with any competitor. I will never fly Frontier again."
Cons: "The flight was over an hour delayed on the ground and then my luggage is still completely lost. The customer service has been absolutely terrible. I am in a city in which I do not live, with absolutely no clothes, toiletries, shoes etc and I have been on hold waiting to talk to someone about my missing bag for over 45 minutes. Frontier has absolutely no idea where my bag is, it is not in the place that I took off from and definitely not at my destination. This has been an absolute nightmare in which they offer you pathetic $50 to make up for the over $3500 I have in missing belongings."
Pros: "Cheap tickets. Flight to Denver international from LAX. Flight to Denver left on time, slight traffic jam on the tarmac when we arrived to Denver but that was out of Frontier's control. Flight from Denver to LAX was horrible."
Cons: "There was two gate switches and the flight was delayed by 3 hours. The delay sucked but what was worse was that none of the Frontier employees knew why it was. I would definitely fly again, cheap tickets. Just plan for delays."
Pros: "Great value! Unbelievable price! Lost oversize luggage going to Denver, but baggage claim folks were very nice and helpful. Piece got to my hotel next morning in plenty of time."
Cons: "The pilots were late so we sat on the plane in Denver 1.5 hours before take off at 1:30 am. Otherwise, it was good, especially considering the price. Thank you!!"
Cons: "Seats - horribly uncomfortable, no recline Leg room - very tight unless you pay $50-$60 for stretch Hidden/extra costs - when I checked in almost all seats cost additional money; this is terrible for business travel and reimbursement purposes because it is considered an upgrade when really unless you take one of three middle seats at the very back of the plane, you have no choice but to pay. Carry-on fees are also ridiculous; it would be much better to be transparent and incorporate these costs into the ticket price. Food/drink - you offer no complimentary food or snack and when you buy something, there is a screen to add a tip - seriously?"
Cons: "It's very late to get a hotel and they didn't arrange anything for us. We get a credit for future flights and hotel reimbursement. But I'd rather not fly Frontier again!"
Pros: "We didn't have long layovers, and stayed at the same gate we came in on from Portland."
Cons: "disruptions while trying to get some sleep. although there was minimal food and drink service, the flight attendants went up and down the aisle a lot, collecting trash."
Pros: "I liked the crew, they were very personable and nice."
Cons: "Charging $40 per carry on? Are you kidding me?? We didn't budget for that and almost had to fly with no luggage. For this reason alone we are never taking another flight from Frontier. It's bad enough that Frontier charges for all baggage, but we had no idea when we bought the tickets off Kayak, that it would be an extra $130 for luggage. What a rip off. Then at the airport, the line to get a baggage ticket wasn't that long, but it took almost 45 minutes. Every time we fly Southwest or Delta, it takes only 10 minutes to get our baggage tagged and on our way to security. I was also unpleasantly surprised that even water costs $2. Other airlines give a free drink, but Frontier charges $2. Terrible. And the seats don't recline. In summary for areas to improve: don't charge me for carry on and don't charge me for water. I will also be looking for another online venue to buy my next tickets, we thought we were going to get a great deal (round trip tickets for two people for around $680) but instead will end up paying in the neighborhood of $885. Kayak let us down big time."
Pros: "The seats didn't recline. The flight was delayed. They lost my bag. I was going for a pool tournament, I was disqualified because I missed beginning of it. Then they lost my pool cue on the way home. They didn't even care about any of my loss. Never again."
Cons: "My flight was delayed and they lost my baggage. I normally wouldn't mind but I missed my pool tournament and they lost my pool cue. They didn't even compensate me for my loss. Never again"
Pros: "In order to have cheap fares, Frontier charges fees for EVERYTHING. Carry-on luggage, anything besides water, etc. If you can fit everything you have into a small backpack and bring your own snacks, no big deal. If not, I'd recommend a different airline."
Cons: "The Southwest-style pay for everything model, except that the base price of the ticket was fairly expensive. So I felt like I was being nickled and dimed and ripped off. Seats were horribly uncomforatble. Tray tables that hardly count as a table (my brought onboard meal wouldn't fit on it) and lack of any entertainment all made me feel like I was traveling in the cargo hold."
Pros: "Very low quality seats and definately not worth the extra money we paid for the so called more leg room No plug on under the seats and no wi-fi. 1.99 for a soda really? Too much mo way for baggage. Will not fly frontier again, you can get better seats and accommodations for the same price or cheaper on other airlines. Definately would choose United or American Airlines"
Cons: "The attendant woke me up after finally finding a position slumped over the tray (read above, no reclining seats) to ask about trash because we had a water bottle he was worried about us leaving. Very rude. Plus, as we saw a youngster dropping zip bags on the ground and that family wasn'tbeing eye balled by the staff. I wanted my overhead bad that I paid extra for, over my seat or a little in front of us so we didn't have to wait for the entire plane to empty before we could get it and the same attendant tried to push out back and was argumentative about it. He was one of the worst attendants in my experience."
Pros: "They held the plane an extra 15 to 20 minutes so that I could run through the entire Denver airport to make this flight due to my initial flight coming in to Denver, we sat on the runway for over an hour once we landed"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable and I arrived safely. Grateful for these aspects of my trip."
Cons: "Employees were rude. Inaccurate information about flight times provided before and during the flight. The hidden fees were ridiculous, such as $1.99 for seltzer water. Note that you cannot pay in cash for anything. Not so unusual, but a pain for since my debit card was lost. Because flight times were inaccurate, I had no time to buy food during my layover and wasn't able to purchase food on the flight. Overall, I would NOT choose to fly Frontier Airlines again unless absolutely necessary."
Pros: "Brand new A-321 (one week old) very smooth flight"
Cons: "The PA system on this one week old plane was way too loud. The long sales pitch for the Frontier credit card with 40,000 bonus miles was so loud that people were putting fingers in their ears. Otherwise excellent flight."
Cons: "They charge for water. WATER. They charge for a carry on. The plane felt like it was going to fall apart. After an hour of turbulence, I started to feel sick but thankfully didn't have to throw up because there were no vomit bags. If you need a really cheap flight and are only bringing a purse, it would be a decent. But be prepared for rude people, discomfort, and turbulence. A misleading, unprofessional company."
Cons: "A 40 minute layover turned into a 5 hour layover in Denver. Frontier did not reimburse for the inconvenience, and sent a inadequate $50.00 coupon towards my next Frontier flight IF USED WITHIN 90 DAYS!! That was an insult, not a good faith gesture. They nickel and dime for everything, and take poor accountability for their errors."
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."
Cons: "These flights are horrible- hard cramped seats, no services, not even a cup of coffee unless you pay extra. $40 to bring a carry on bag on the plane. Cost more than any other flight in the long run."
Pros: "Boarding process was easy Crew were attentive On time I didn't pay for a seat, but got a window anyway"
Cons: "Checked bag and seat fees Seats do not recline Charge for water! Tray tables are half the size of typical trays, but I guess since they don't feed people, it's not much of a problem"
Cons: "Mechanical problems caused 3+ hour delay. Missed being able to pick up my rental and didn't make for quite the same evening."
Pros: "Horrible, horrible, horrible in all ways. Unreasonably aggressive boarding staff, very disorganized and chaotic. Dirty, uncomfortable seats, 4 delayed boardings and departures in a row - will never fly Spirit again."
Cons: "Virtually everything."
Cons: "Couldn’t pay for luggage at time of booking with kayak so cost more then it should have."
Cons: "If sike they can't change my flight so i don't like spirit airline!"
Pros: "Everything!!! Super impressed!"
Cons: "That I had to leave the amazing experience and go on vacation. :("
Cons: "you cancelled my return flight because i missed my incoming flight. never flying with you again, that's a stupid policy and i wasted a bunch of money for NOTHING!"
Cons: "Flight crew was rude to passengers, and during the overnight flight had a three hour long very loud conversation about their personal lives. Any passenger that approached them was treated poorly. The airplane floor and seats were dirty upon arrival. As with any low budget airline, the seats were uncomfortable and there were no entertainment options. Check in was a nightmare with insane lines and passengers barely getting their bags and check-in figured out before rushing to the gate. Recommend arriving three hours early if you don't want to wonder if you're about to miss your flight through the checkin and bag drop process."
Pros: "Glad I tried spirit! Got me in early on both legs of my flight! Also glad I got the comfy seat-SO worth the money!"
Pros: "The airline crew was great and friendly"
Cons: "We got the seats in the last row and couldn't recline them. Didn't have anywhere to charge my device. No app was provided for entertainment neither was there screens for our 4 hour plus flight."
Pros: "It was cancelled. My flight from Laguardia to LAX was in a pretty miserable non-reclining seat. And the carry on baggage fee makes the ticket no longer a good deal. Never again."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled without explanation. Found out at the airport instead of text, email, or call beforehand."
Pros: "Of the 6 flights I took with Spirit on this trip, this was the only one where they boarded the flight in a timely and organized manner by using the zones printed on the boarding passes."
Pros: "I got to sleep and I got the window seat."
Pros: "My trip was totally on schedule, the plane was new and clean, and the staff did a great job."
Pros: "That I had a good seat"
Cons: "Paying for carry on and for food and drinks"
Pros: "favorite flight schedule from Den to FLL or visa versa...Thanks"
Cons: "They cancelled flight with no help with an alternative same day arrangement"
Pros: "the price"
Cons: "paying for everything and nothing is complimentary"
Cons: "Unexplained delays. Then finally someone says the pilots haven't arrived. They still decided to board us, but apparently they couldn't turn on the air until the pilots arrive, so we cook in there, not knowing how long this will go on. Finally, the pilots arrived. Air turns on, but still we wait. And wait and wait, all the while Spirit sends me a total of FOURTEEN delayed takeoff and arrival emails. As if I couldn't already get the gist sitting on the plane waiting waiting waiting. Finally, we get rolling, but never is there any acknowledgment that we've been waiting or that they're sorry for the continued delays or something nice yadayadayada. Last Spirit flight I'll take."
Cons: "I was stranded for almost three extra days due to canceled flights. And was only given two round trip flights."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled with no reason given, it took almost an hour to call and get my return trip cancelled because the website would not allow me to change my flight. Representative tried to reschedule me for a 12 hour trip when the original flight was 2.5 hours before finally cancelling my trip all together. Spirit ended up costing me $150 more than had I booked with another airline at the beginning because I was left having to purchase a ticket day of on a competitor."
Pros: "Fast easy boarding."
Cons: "Crew would not let us move to open seats that would give more comfort."
Pros: "I picked my seat beforehand and it was a big, comfy seat. Flight was on time and smooth. Nice crew members"
Cons: "I dislike that you can't even get water without paying for it. Offer a little something!"
Pros: "Good price. Staff and flight crew were courteous and efficient. This was my first time on this type of aircraft and what struck me was how wide the aisle was. It made moving around a lot easier. I found a row of open seats in the back, and the crew let me switch to that row and I was able to stretch out. That was nice."
Cons: "The seat comfort was ok for the first hour, after that I was cramping up and hurting a bit. A cross country flight would be a killer unless I switched to the good seats up front. I'm 65, so maybe that's part of the problem."
Pros: "The plane was clean and in good condition. The crew was professional. The flight was on time and ahead of schedule."
Cons: "This was my first flight with Spirit and I will avoid flying again with Spirit. Too many surprises with the extra expenses such as the seating charge, the baggage fees (especially the 40 pound limit on check in baggage which was new to me), the extra fees for not completing tasks online. It is just a nuisance to try to keep up with the next fee that will be sprung on the passenger. No more!"
Cons: "I paid more money during check in to an upgrade seat. Once on the plane, other passengers sat WHERE EVER they wanted. The staff had problems with accountability because seat numbers and ticket assignments were completely ignored. What good is a seat assignment if staff ignores the flight manifest. In the future I will no longer fly spirit because you do not value my upgrade. I feel you have unfairly taken my upgrade money only to find out that passenger's can ignore the upgrade costs and sit anywhere in the plane."
Pros: "nothing!! Worst flight I've ever had!!"
Cons: "Hated everything horrible service and delayed 4 hours with no weather never riding this airlines again!! What a rip off and they charged me almost 100 bucks for on carry on there and back"
Cons: "1.Seated next to a very large man that should have bought 2 seats. I was only able to occupy 3/4 of my space. It was a very uncomfortable flight with having part of a strangers body touching and crowding me. There were no other seats available to move to. 2. When I asked for a glass of water, they do not give you, but you have to pay. 3. ALL other airlines allow a purse and a small carry-on. They charge $55.00 dollars. 4. They charge double for check in bag. $50.00, most others charge $25.00 I will not fly with Spirit again and heard other complaints from other passengers. This will be a short-lived airline."
Cons: "The tickets were not specific about cabin luggage size. I had to spend an additional 100$ to place my luggage under the plan. I felt like I was in a luggage transport plane with seats. Definitely Kmart class transportation."
Cons: "My round trip ticket was $150. Great deal except for the added $100 for my check in luggage! Which would have $110 if I would have carried on a bag! Ridiculous! For that price I could have taken another person with me! Next time I should just wear all my clothes I would normally pack and check nothing in! LOL!"
Pros: "They're the same as Ryanair and my wife and I will never fly them again. They charge for every little thing."
Cons: "They charged us $220 (round trip) for two carry-on and $10 for printing boarding passes. There's no complementary drinks or snacks on the plane unless you pay for it. The back of the seat in front of us only has bungee cords, preventing us from storing iPads and drinks we had. Very disappointed with this airline."
Pros: "Fast boarding, but then we sat with the door open for 20 minutes. Flight was fine. I would only ever consider flying again if there was a phenomenal price break from the next cheapest airline."
Cons: "Gate change with no announcement or change on departures board. Late takeoff. Tiny cramped seats, and miniature tray tables. Trash in front of my seat at boarding. The majority of passengers seemed to be inexperienced flyers, maybe gravitating towards the cheap fare? VERY annoying, needy, chatty, panickey at take off and landing. Not a pleasant environment."
Pros: "Basic stripped down service. Everything a la carte. No frills..."
Cons: "$50 bag check each way. "free" random seats mean middle unless you want to pay for designated seat."
Cons: "The policy for paying for carry on baggage is confusing because you can carry on the same weight and cubic inches as baggage that you have to pay for as long as it is two parcels instead of just one. I will not be flying Spirit again"
Cons: "I had to connect in Las Vegas from Denver on a delayed flight, the connection as well was delayed. My self and traveling partner grabbed a sandwich returned to departing gate and plane was boarded and taxing away. They left early to make up for delay but we were not warned nor did they attempt to intercom us. We were 100 yards away. We had to take a flight 24 hours later and cost me $400 in hotel and a day's work. Very disappointed"
Pros: "Flight was on time. Ticket agents were helpful."
Cons: "Ticket kiosk didn't work well. Seat pocket was filled with garbage from previous flight. Cannot tolerate flight crew hawking credit cards. It's intrusive. I think their time would be better spent in safety and comfort needs of passengers."
Pros: "we flew from oakland to ohare for the first time on Spirit airlines and we were very impressed. We left on time - or even a minute or two early - and landed safely. what more could we ask? The staff was friendly and the plane was clean. two thumbs up!"
Pros: "Y'all are stealing money."
Cons: "Why do I have to pay for a carry on and on top of that it's more expensive than the other bag"
Cons: "We were delayed over an hour, with no support at the gate to explain why or let us know when we would be leaving. Incredibly frustrating, as I booked this flight (instead of another airline) for the departure time. Would have rather used another airline.."
Pros: "Only thing that I liked about this flight was the price I paid but after the last minute purchase of my carry on, it came to what I'd pay on another airline with more accommodations, comfortable seats that recline & no charge"
Cons: "Seats were extremely uncomfortable & tight without any recline. Charged for just a glass of water which is ridiculous ."
Pros: "spirit was late both ways. three plus hours late on the way home... so much so the train back into the city was closed and i had to take a $50 cab. i like the idea of cheaper fairs for simplicity, but its worth paying more if spirit cant even get the basics right."
Cons: "spirit was late both ways. three plus hours late on the way home... so much so the train back into the city was closed and i had to take a $50 cab. i like the idea of cheaper fairs for simplicity, but its worth paying more if spirit cant even get the basics right."
Pros: "Great price for the flight, until you have to pay extra for a single carry-on, then it's no longer a great price. Flights were on time."
Cons: "Surprise, a single carry-on costs extra! Also, the seats are very narrow, and don't recline at all. The plane was not clean. And you want food or drink? Even a tiny snack costs extra. I've been on third-world airlines that were nicer. Never again."
Pros: "I liked that Spirit upgraded me to a window seat with no cost and that there were no delays."
Cons: "No dislikes"
Pros: "The boarding process was smooth and we took off/ landed on time."
Cons: "The crew was complaining as we were boarding about how tired they were to each other and not really helping guests. There was a crying baby for a long time on the red eye and I felt they could've offered the mother some help but they didn't do anything. Then the mother tried to stand up after we had landed but before the seat belt sign had gone off and the stewardess freaked out on her. Could've handled the situation much more professionally. The seats suck, the tray tables suck, not having a complementary beverage sucks, and paying for carry on bags sucks. But that's Spirit and everyone knows that is why they suck."
Cons: "Your seats suck, the price to carry on a bag is outrageous. This is my least favrioute airline, yeah you have cheap prices but after its all said and done it's cheaper to book through southwest"
Cons: "Everything worst airline."
Cons: "There needs to be a clear indication that *even a carry-on bag* is not included in the ticket price. Spirit website and online checkin was terrible. Communication about the flight delay was nearly nonexistent. Kayak sent me an email notification before Spirit did!"
Pros: "Customer service in Manila speaks with heavy accent talks so loud. Do not undestand what they are saying. Then they became rude, asked for supervisor, they refused. Oversea customer service may be cheaper labor for the co, your customers have hard time understanding them. How can we use spirit? My mother handicapped senior ended up missing the flight because customers service put on a hold for 75 minutes. I called them to speak to a manager refused first time then put me on hold for an hour. I will put this terrible process experience on google, so people should, must know especially if this is concerning children or elderly seniors. The higher management should acknowledge and be accountable for people suffer great deal."
Pros: "This ticket was inexpensive and got the job done. My flights were on time and smooth. The airline is clearly a discount airline. Extra charges for luggage and snacks, which, if you've traveled before, are easily avoidable. I can't believe people are complaining about crowded seats and extra charges, as if other airlines aren't doing the same things... If you want a first class traveling experience, pay four times more on a different airline. The flight attendants were perfectly polite and friendly. While Spirit isn't my airline of choice, I would fly with them again."
Cons: "TSA made me go back to the ticket counter to get a printed boarding pass, because a digital copy was insufficient. Hopefully Spirit will be able to send digital boarding passes soon."
Cons: "Rude employees, incompetent staff. Outrageous hidden fees. First time I flew spirit they cancelled my connecting flight, escorted me out of the terminal, stood in line for 3 hours to be rescheduled to a flight the following day. They put me in a hotel an hour away with a shuttle that ran every 2 hours so I was able to sleep for 3 hours. Second experience... 5 hour delay from 730p to 12:30p departure. Fool me once shame on you. Fool me twice shame on me. Never booking spirit again. Absolute garbage airline."
