Cons: "Front right lav door hard to latch, headphones worked on one side only, gap in middle of lie-flat bed."
Cons: "The main economy seats were far too narrow."
Cons: "Not really an experienced flyer. Overall the flight seemed good. No issues with airline or airport. Just don’t understand self-important people that feel compelled to push the overhead storage limits with their bags."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and completely packed so our family could not get seats together"
Pros: "Love the fact that the head rests move to support your head better."
Pros: "Boarding was easy."
Cons: "I am 6' 1" tall and weigh 220, so not out of the ordinary and I felt like I was stuffed into a sardine can."
Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Boarding at JFK.Always messy"
Pros: "Delta never ceases to amaze me. The flight was perfect!"
Cons: "There’s nothing I can think of."
Pros: "Boarding was quick"
Cons: "No entertainment, plane was small"
Pros: "Good entertainment selection and great crew"
Cons: "Seats are more uncomfortable relative to other airlines"
Cons: "First delay notification: 1 hour 20 minutes 1 hour later, Second delay notification: 3 hours 15 minutes 2 hours later: Third delay notification: 3 hour 50 minutes Fourth delay notification: 4 hours 25 minutes Fifth delay notification: 4 hour 32 minutes No explanation for reason. Last time flying Delta."
Pros: "Early and middle seat was open!"
Cons: "Coffee tasted like fish. :("
Pros: "Entertainment choices were excellent, many new movies available, so I was able to see movies is been meaning to watch. There were drinks available."
Cons: "The air vents barely trickle out any air anymore. No relief to be had. Airline crews say hi and goodbye but that doesn't make them friendly."
Pros: "The crew on the airplane was great. We had 2.5 hours turbulences but the crew started to give out drinks as soon they got the ok from the pilot"
Cons: "We went in LGA to the Baggage drop off and the employee there was super rude. On the flight to New York with Delta we had to check our carry ons at the gate because it wasn't enough room for bags in the airplane.so we asked when we checked our one suitcase if we can/should check our carry ons to avoid having to do it at the gate. The delta employee told me sure no problem. He checks in my one suitcase I purchased gives me the tracking paper and says ok have a good flight. I asked him so what is with our carry ons and he told us that that would cost 25$ and we can't check those in at the drop off?!?We ended up taking the carry ons with to the gate and then off course there wasn't enough room on the airplane that we had to check it in. And surprise it was free?? We had never issues with Lufthansa, icelandair etc. with checking our bags at drop off to not needing to carry it around and than still end up to check it at the airplane. Every airline has been more than happy that we volunteer to check our bags that they don't have the trouble at the gate."
Pros: "We boarded close to on time, no hassles. Allowed my husband and me (retired military) to board early, thank you."
Cons: "LAX security is awful. We never left the airport (arrived LAX from Sydney AU) yet were forced thru security again. Had to remove shoes, was scanned and "frisked" by TSA to get to Denver. To go to Australia, Denver TSA waived the removal of shoes, skipped the scan for the metal detector and no one touched me, ditto for LAX on the trip to Sydney. Where's the uniformity or standards for TSA?? Why did I have to be subjected to this garbage on the way home?? This is why I despise flying. It makes no sense to me. This ruined what was a great vacation."
Cons: "Very little leg room."
Pros: "JFK to Denver the flight Attendants were once again great. Lots of entertainment choices again. The usual rough air coming into DIA."
Cons: "From JFK to Denver the seats were to close for leg room by an inch or two. The temperature was hot most of the flight."
Pros: "Love the built in tv’s with free entertainment."
Cons: "The plane got delayed on the runway and the shut the engines off so the plane got super hot, but even after we got up in the air it never cooled down. Normally I’m freezing on flights, but I just sat sweating this whole flight. It was terrible."
Pros: "I usually have had great experiences with Delta. The meal selection was limited. By the time they made it up to my seat they had run out of what we wanted. Also, the entertainment system at my seat and my husbands wasn’t working well. One of the bathrooms had a cabinets Tvst oliiiooooiiooooioiooiiiooiio"
Pros: "The staff really helped me out getting on standby so that I didn't have to wait for a 9 hour layover. Overall great experience and great staff."
Pros: "Flight attendants were excellent!"
Pros: "Everything was perfect !! Staff friendly"
Pros: "Excellent piloting and cabin crew."
Pros: "It got me home, eventually."
Cons: "Poor communication, a 6 hour delay followed by a 7 hour layover (during which we had to sleep on an airport floor because Delta couldn't offer us any hotel vouchers). Gate agents disappeared after 7pm becuase they were due to be done with their shifts when our flight was originally supposed to leave at 6 pm. It felt like we were trapped in the movie The Terminal. Oh! And our bag was misrouted, because that was just how things went those 2 days. All in all a 6 hour trip turned into 18 hours. I could have driven home in that amount of time!"
Cons: "Check in lines were crazy long"
Cons: "My daughter was stuck in SLC for 5 hours because there 1 cancelled flight and 1 delayed flight. It was very upsetting not knowing when she going to arrive in Denver."
Pros: "First leg from San Diego was excellent."
Cons: "Arriving in SLC discovered out flight to Denver was CANCELLED! Had to reschedule to the next day. Not fun!"
Pros: "App is good and convenient to use."
Cons: "The app went down just as we were getting ready to board and luckily i had a printed pass and it took some extra time to check in."
Pros: "really helpful and friendly service and nice seats."
Cons: "We left late, it was delayed then maintenance issues. Twice. Seating was very tight and uncomfortable, no movies or entertainment at all. U.S. flights are the worst. Even on short flights with aeromexico outside the U.S. you get movies and food. Zero stars for comfort, food and entertainment."
Pros: "Courteous crew and smooth flight"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "free texting and entertainment!"
Cons: "our flight was delayed half an hour."
Pros: "the upgraded seats with the new headrests were great. the pilots & crew did a great job despite the more-than-average turbulence."
Cons: "lack of any entertainment options whatsoever (not necessary but always a nice-to-have). More importantly, the fact that I checked-in with seat 14 and ended-up, seemingly randomly, in seat 28 (the back of the plane) when I had SPECIFICALLY selected a seat in the FRONT section of the plane. That was particularly annoying, especially since the optics of the situation were such that I used miles to purchase the flight and got "screwed-over" with respect to my seat selection as if my ticket held less weight than other passengers..."
Cons: "I don't like that I already completed this survey several days ago and have been receiving reminders to do so. I guess you don't have a good system in place for knowing who has and has not completed your surveys. That's too bad."
Pros: "The boarding process in Atlanta was as smooth as could be expected given that it was a full flight. I appreciated the gate announcer's suggestions to everyone about how to ease the overhead baggage crunch."
Cons: "Economy is very tight quarters."
Cons: "Guests with no overhead luggage should be able to exit first."
Pros: "Friendliness of staff. Second flight was a newer plane - sweet!"
Cons: "For a long flight perhaps a little more in the snack department."
Pros: "Crew was all very nice"
Cons: "Flying is always uncomfortable"
Pros: "Free in flight entertainment"
Cons: "One of my bags went to Santa Fe"
Cons: "I'm tired of Delta making it IMPOSSIBLE to experience benefits of my loyalty. I flew literally AROUND the world in the past 6 months and it STILL doesn't qualify me for anything more than Silver elite? Seriously? When you use a voucher because of their error to lower your ticket price, but still pay cash for it, why does that then automatically exclude you from upgrades? Poor customer loyalty, in fact, non-existent these days."
Pros: "Nothing in particular was that great. Just very low average"
Cons: "Old smelly plane. Bad entertainment options."
Pros: "WiFi, good flight attendants"
Cons: "Would like to see Direct TV along with Delta Suite so can watch live TV"
Pros: "Attendants and entertainment"
Cons: "Delays for no explained reason"
Pros: "Efficient and on time."
Cons: "I booked tickets well in advance but wasnt allowed to select seats at time of booking nor at 24 hour check in. This adds undue stress having to wait for an assignement at the gate."
Pros: "plane had individual movies for free with each seat!"
Pros: "Quick, clean"
Cons: "I was in the back seat"
Pros: "service. Thank you."
Cons: "comfort seats were uncomfortable"
Pros: "Left on time, arrived early. Great cabin service, attentive and polite. Comfort Plus seats are worth the extra few bucks."
Cons: "Nothing. Low rating for entertainment only because there really wasn't any, but I wouldn't have used it anyway, so no big deal."
Cons: "I'm not sure how you lose a bag on a direct flight from Atlanta to Denver, but Delta found a way to do it. They didn't even put my bag on the plane and had to send it with the next one coming. To their credit, they did drive it out to my house when it got here."
Pros: "Yes"
Pros: "Crew on both our flights were very nice and accommodating."
Pros: "United delays"
Pros: "Everything was good."
Cons: "All was good."
Pros: "Customer service was good, I also liked the text updates."
Cons: "I really dislike that the make you check your carry on now. Most airlines let you take your carry on so I’m used to that. It also originally said $25 but at the check in it was $30. Plus I prefer not to check in my bag because it is faster, but since I did I had to stay at the airport an extra hour."
Pros: "Plane wasn’t full, crew was great"
Cons: "They could have better food options for a 7 hours flight."
Pros: "Nice crew, good take off and landing"
Cons: "We were an hr late taking off."
Pros: "Good leg room"
Cons: "Seats are narrow. Not much shoulder space"
Pros: "Nothing, worst experience I’ve ever had traveling. Up for nearly 2 days and with no help from the local airport staff."
Cons: "Everything, no customer service whatsoever"
Pros: "Everybody was wonderful. All the staff were friendly and the flight was great."
Cons: "I volunteered to gate check my instruments (which I NEVER do because it’s not my hobby, it’s my livelihood). When I did, I made very clear that I’ll ONLY do it if it’s handed to me at the gate when I arrive. It CANNOT go into baggage claim because it’s 2 $3000, left handed, vintage Paul McCartney basses packed in one bag. The gentleman assured me that I’d have it handed to me upon arrival. It isn’t designed to go through the rough handling of people I’ve never met or trusted. So I got to Denver and waited at the gate until someone told me, “oh no that’s gonna be down in baggage claim” Needless to say, I’m scared to death and I don’t even know where $6000 worth of instruments of mine, is right now. I wish people would communicate when they promise things."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable, we were in first class. United provided a good selection of recent movies."
Cons: "United stewardesses have little to no interest in their duties. Questions were clearly an annoyance to them. The leg of flight from Denver to Des Moines was very uncomfortable, seats much to tigh, no leg room. Gate staff in Denver were exceptional. United needs to revisit their time for loading. We preloaded, I had a broken leg, I was traveling with a special needs woman. We just reached our seats when other passengers were prodding us to sit so they could board no time to settle. Not impressed"
Cons: "Lost bags and every time I called to find out where they were I would get a different story. I was told it would be on the next flight for the next 5 flights."
Pros: "The flight attendants were so nice, and although our flight was delayed and hour and fifteen minutes and our layover was an hour and fifteen minutes, we were able to make our connection! Since our connection to Portland in Denver was the last flight of the night, they were able to hold it for us. This was wonderful because there weren’t many flights out that weren’t booked solid for the next day. The attendants on this flight were great about updating us with information for the connections and telling us when we would land in Denver."
Cons: "The plane was delayed over an hour for cleaning. It was frustrating to say the least."
Pros: "Great airline crew and staff. Departed on time and arrived early."
Cons: "My other 3 flights on United were on a larger airplane with plenty of legroom. This one was very cramped. I was stuck in a middle seat and essentially pinned there for 2 hours."
Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "This was a smaller plane (4 seats across). Knowing this, they didn't bring enough luggage carts, so they only brought some of the luggage to the baggage claim and didn't tell us this. 5-6 of us waited and waited and finally asked someone who told us that they had to go back to the plane to get the rest of the luggage. Those of us still waiting got to wait another half hour for our luggage. Talk all they want, United just can't seem to get it right. PS: those of us who had to wait were the ones who got to the San Antonio airport the earliest and thus our luggage was on the plane first."
Cons: "Seats to small. But I am 6'3"" and my son traveling with me is 6'5"."
Pros: "Seats are too narrow. Passenger next to me was so big he was sitting on my seat."
Cons: "Seats are too narrow."
Pros: "The leg from Denver to vegas was awesome"
Cons: "The first leg didn't have any snacks and a cold continental breakfast. American and Delta's breakfast is much nicer. But worth the price for that portion of the leg."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The plane was freezing. I needed to put on socks--really wished I had packed wool ones. The seats were cramped and mine did not recline."
Pros: "free movies on the flight with the united app"
Cons: "The flight attendant was late delaying boarding 20 minutes. Once they started, people were lining up to board. This is a normal behavior however, there employee decided to stop boarding because she said people were crowding. she stop boarding for another 20 minutes. Now, this was a large flight and there wasn't enough room for everyone to stand off to the side. She was rude and there was no reason for this especially when the flight attendant was already late. The plane was delayed 45 minutes due to this"
Pros: "I was sat in an exit seat."
Cons: "The lady in the seat next to me was so overweight that I couldn't sit comfortably for the entire flight - I had to lean out and it hurt my back!"
Pros: "Nothing I won't be flying united again!"
Cons: "The lady at the gate when boarding was not friendly and was not willing to help us get seats together. I was traveling with my mother, husband and two infant children. And it was like pulling teeth to get any information out of her. She did not even tell us we could board early to get situated on plane! I also called earlier that morning and spoke with a man on he phone at united who told me he put us all in the same row. That was a lie bc when we checked in at the gate to get our seats the lady said no one was sitting next to each other! That lady was rude and short tempered! Awful experience will never fly again!!"
Cons: "The default on the browser defaulted to April 9 when I was actually booking the ticket for April 2. So I had to forfeit the $317 ticket. I use kayak a lot - can anything be down ?"
Pros: "It was comfortable"
Cons: "lots of turbulence but that happens"
Pros: "Food was edible, nothing special"
Cons: "Boarding was very slow, as was cabin staff. Not very attentive. Made a big deal about letting passengers with connections off first, although we arrived. We waited, as requested. Finally got up,after realizing everyone in the 20'rows behind us was gone."
Pros: "Got there on time."
Cons: "Private screening does not work well. Very little kneeroom. No room in seat back pockets to put anything."
Pros: "Small airport, comfortable seating, polite crew"
Cons: "Snack wasn't my style"
Cons: "Unable to pre-check online. Unable to check at the check in machines--had to go up and check in at the counter, long wait because there was only one clerk. We were then given a ticket just to get through security and had to check in a second time when we get to the gate for seat assignment, which is ridiculous. Why couldn't that be done at the 1st check-in? The clerk told me she will call me when she has the seat assignment/ boarding ticket but she never did and I had to go back up to ask for them when it was getting close to boarding time. At the last moment minutes, volunteers could check in their carry on for free....It would have been nice (and less hassle) to have that option at the 1st check-in."
Pros: "Quick and easy boarding, friendly staff, On time/early to arrival"
Cons: "Not a lot of space for passengers- even someone small like me at 5'2 and 120 lbs. Flight was also a bit turbulent"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I'm usually a patient person, but my flight was supposed to leave at 525am and didn't leave until 730. This was the first flight in the morning. We boarded, waiting 30 minutes on the plane, they told us to get off because there were computer issues. Why wasn't that checked before everybody was boarded? Once we got on the plane we had to wait another 30 minutes for the crew to get someone's luggage from under the plane. Why wasn't that done while the computer was getting fixed? I didn't get to Denver until 1040am missed my flight and didn't get to get on my connection until 500pm. In the meantime I called to get on a different flight at 1, but the guy on the phone didn't actually book me a seat. The gate people weren't very nice."
Pros: "Crew and they kept you well feed"
Cons: "I just could not get comfortable"
Cons: "A la ahora de irnos hubo muchos contratiempo por el tiempo pero por el vuelo después que nos fuimos fue excelente"
Pros: "Very friendly and helpful staff."
Cons: "The fact that we had a connecting flight to minot from Denver. Arrived late to Denver because of weather, but my stroller that I had left on the jetway in Seattle was never put on the plane which I didn't know until I got to minot. I was going to wait for it in denver, but I would have missed my flight to minot had I waited 5 more minutes. We arrived to minot only to find out that our 3 suitcases, one stroller and 2 car seats were never in the flight. Awful! And my connecting flight was even delayed an extra 55 min so I don't quite know where my things are."
Cons: "The seats are ridiculously small and cramped and hard. Didnt realize i was booking a "puddle-jumper" to go cross-country. Also-i wish you'd bring the screens back. Neck was so kinked from being on my own so long."
Pros: "The staff was very helpful"
Cons: "Turbulence was horrid. Had to re route the landing causing me to miss my connecting flight. united had no other options for 23 hours. Therefore I chose to return to my starting destination. I still had to spend the night at the airport, and missed a 10 hour day of work due to no other flight options. All I received was a verbal apology. Glad I paid for a flight to a one night stay at Denver airport and back."
Cons: "One strange thing happened on my United airlines flight. The crew announced before we boarded that there wasn't enough overhead space for rolling bags and encouraged us to check them in. Upon boarding they announced that all overhead space in the back was full. I sat in the back and noticed that the crew closed the overhead compartments even though they were mostly empty. Another passenger opened an empty one and the crew came over and closed it right away, though many people were still boarding. What's going on?"
Cons: "The airplane was freezing, and I'm 23 years old and very used to flying."
Cons: "Additional fees for extra space were 1/3 the cost of my flight"
Pros: "Nothing everything was horrible absolute terrible customer service"
Cons: "Didn't offer vouchers or accomodations Classified delay as weather when we were told in Ohio it was a mechicanical I was extremely distraught began crying horribly became extremely dehydrated & went into urgent care once returning to PHX"
Cons: "My flight was scheduled to leave at 4:51 pm. I arrived at the airport 2 and a half hours before my flight was to leave and I read the departure board to see that the flight was delayed due to maintenance. Then I saw that it was delayed again because we were waiting for a flight coming in from the Bahamas. Well my flight didn't take off until about 7:30 pm. I arrived in Denver around 10:00 pm which made me miss my shuttle to the Springs. I am a diabetic and was in need of my medication so I needed to get home. I spent extra money to take a bus to downtown Denver and a grayhound bus to the springs and a cab to my home. So my trip cost my an extra $55.00 dollars I didn't have. I have always taken United but after this experience, I will never again take United."
Pros: "The crew is AMAZING!!! Personal, professionals, they go above and beyond my personal standard of customer service. Very comfortable atmosphere. Not to be mistaken with the uncomfortable seats. I like to think United doesn't overlook the work ethic their employees represent the company with on a day to day basis."
Cons: "I travel for work from Grand Junction, Colorado to Dickinson, North Dakota every 4 to 6 weeks. I always fly United. On one occasion I met family in Colorado Springs, so I bought a round trip ticket from Dickinson to Colorado Springs. I missed the second half of my round trip flight from Colorado Springs to Dickinson. I had to pay my own cab fare from Colorado Springs to Denver to catch my flight, because your plane, that i paid for a flight on, had mechanical issues and didn't make it to Colorado Springs. Second, my flight in Denver was cancelled 3 times and almost a fourth. I all but got down on my knees and begged to catch the fourth flight they tried to cancel. Third, I didn't even get to fly into Dickinson. So instead of somebody coming and picking me up in Dickinson which is a 30-minute drive from where I work, somebody had to drive 3 hours to Williston where you guys ended up getting me. Which cost me 3 hours of gas money to get picked up, instead of 30 min of gas money. I didn't get either of the flights back to North Dakota that I paid for. I've asked for the reasonable request that I be refunded 50% of the cost of the airfare and the $235 it cost for cab fare. When I contacted United about this I got the runaround from everybody. At this point I've pretty much accepted the loss, and the financial hit. I'll continue to fly United only because it's pretty much my only option. Just make sure you keep the crew around. They're great. I'd hate for the experience to go from unsatisfying, to miserable."
Pros: "they gave us the whole can to drink on the flight for drinks"
Cons: "the stupid old white man at baggage check in in New YOrk who was EXTREMELY rude and made me HATE flying with UNited"
Pros: "The crew was very kind."
Cons: "The temperature control was ridiculous!!! One minute it was 40 degrees and the next it was 90. People were putting on coats and hats, taking them off and putting them back on the entire flight. It was horrible and there was NOTHING relaxing about this flight bc of it. The crew announced the inflight entertainment and gave directions on how to use it. Thirty minutes later, they informed us it wasn't working. So nothing to distract us from the horrible temps!!! Pull this aircraft out of service and fix the temperature!!!"
Pros: "My flight started off with getting to the airport only to find my flight had been canceled in the morning and rescheduled at an earlier time while I was at work. I don't check my phone or email while at work. Fortunately, your staff was quickly able to put me on a flight that left an hour and a half after my original flight, but would put me on a connecting flight with American Airlines in Chicago. The AA flight had engine trouble so it turned around and we borded another plane after we landed. The original flight would have had me to my destination by 9:30 pm. Instead I arrived at 1:08 am the next day. I am frustrated that my flight was canceled so close to my departure. It was a great inconvenience to those picking me up at the airport. It added to my stress. It made it much less likely that I will fly United again. Maybe you had good reason to cancel my flight at such short notice, but it severely tainted my experience and opinion of United and American Airlines which had been fairly positive until now."
Cons: "The inconsideration for my schedule. The last minute change."
Pros: "Window seat. On time. Courtesy of staff."
Cons: "Cramped. Tight fit for such along flight. Squoze in."
Pros: "Punctual flight, lack of major issues. Friendly staff helps on a long flight. Handled minor issues in the cabin well."
Cons: "Boarding the 747 was a bit disorganized, using doors on both sides of the gate desk led to confusion."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly & helpfull, this was my first time flying so I was greatly appreciative of the friendly staff."
Cons: "The prices on food & snacks are very high espically for someone who does not have a lot of money. DELAYED FLIGHT!"
Pros: "Not only do I get the best price. The fact that you told me what carousel to get my bag from was new to me. I alway check kyak first but now I love u guys. I know my travel site and its kayak"
Cons: "United check in desk in Columbus was incredibly unhelpful and unfriendly. There was an enormous line that seemed to grow because the three people working the check-in blatantly informed those customers who asked for help. The was no concern for helping people reach their gates. I had to flag down a woman and actual shout down the counter that I needed help or I would miss my flight. The woman at the gate check also ignored a question I had at being at the correct gate. Once on board we were delayed for an hour because the plan was overweight. They asked for volunteers to get off the plane but never told us when the next flight to Dulles would be, or how we may be compensated if we got off the plane. I missed my connecting flight in Dulles and lost my luggage."
Cons: "My flight was many hours delayed due to bad weather in Denver. Then my flight from Denver to LAX was eventually cancelled so I took a direct flight from Phl to LAX on American. That flight was fine."
Pros: "Everybody was awesome. Definitely wanna fly frontier again"
Cons: "There was a crying baby for the entire flight and the man next to me smelled so these are things frontier can’t control. But other than that. Awesome"
Pros: "It was cheap. You get what you pay for."
Cons: "Being late. Really late. It started in the morning, 12 hours before the flight and was told it was going to be 1.5 hours late. Of course you know that is only the beginning. Then like a suspense thriller, every episode is a cliff hanger. As the moment approached for the flight to leave late, it was extended yet another hour then two. Like Tantalus, never quite reaching the object of desire, we were strung along till 10:30 for a 6:30 flight. Yet as bad as it was, it was better than coming by hand-cart. But it was a bit of a pioneering experience."
Pros: "The price point was fine. The crew were very helpful and nice. We actually arrived 30 minutes early!"
Cons: "When I arrived in Columbus Airport, I was met with a sign that read “Desk closed. Call ______ for rebooking flights.” It wasn’t until I found a worker for another airline that I found out that meant the desk didn’t open until two hours before the flight. Then, the agent printed out my luggage tags 8 or 9 times before she finally sent me to another agent to print it correctly. I paid extra to sit in the legroom seats (1F). When I boarded, it turns out I was reassigned to 5F with no explaination. Cramped seating with my knees against the seat in front of me and the seats do not recline. I will be requesting a refund for the extra fee paid. I understand, you get what you pay for, but I was disappointed."
Pros: "Cheap; smooth landing"
Cons: "Screaming children; no leg room"
Cons: "Extra fees for carry-ons, seat selection, and on all drinks and snacks."
Cons: "Checked bags are $40, but carry on luggage is also $40. It costs money to try to sit next to your travel companion. Soft drinks, water, coffee all cost extra. Seats don't lean back, no in-flight entertainment. Don't see why anyone flies Frontier - after all the hidden fees, it's more expensive than other options."
Cons: "DID NOT like having to wait in Denver airport for the scheduled 9 hour layover and then delayed for another 1.5 hour for a total of 10+ hours. DID NOT like getting lured into a great schedule in March and then in May you cancelled the flight and we had a 9 + hour layover. TERRIBLE. Will never fly with Frontier again. :("
Pros: "Plane was large, seats not too crowded. Very clean. Staff friendly, entertaining."
Cons: "No snacks! Had to pay for flight, then also for bag and seat. Price for flight not cheap enough to offset those expenses"
Pros: "Overall nice pricing, nice staff and easy fast flight regardless of delay by an hour. Much more comfortable seats than other airlines."
Cons: "Flight was freezing, but I understand you can't control that. Suggest flyers to bring blankets."
Pros: "I lived"
Cons: "definitely would be better if there was USB ports and if I'm gonna spend $7.99 on a shot of whiskey it would at least fill the glass up"
Pros: "The crew was really nice and accommodating."
Cons: "Flight delayed 2-1/2 hours, which I understood, the weather was horrible - BUT First the desk clerks were rude and as if people weren't irritated enough this didn't help Then the flight attendants were rude - all around miserable flight AND they charge for EVERYTHING - you may think you are getting a good deal on tickets, but you pay $40 for a checked bag, the same for a CARRY ON you pay for a decent seat they don't even give you peanuts without charging you I am done with Frontier - will never fly it again!"
Pros: "Everyone was courteous"
Cons: "4 1/2 hours late. Missed all connections. Up for 24 hours"
Cons: "4 hrs late. Lack of clear update at airport. You have to pay for even water."
Cons: "I concur with so many other reviewers that charging for every single item that the carrier feels the customer will bare is quickly becoming a huge detriment to travel. That's why I try to fly Southwest as much as possible."
Pros: "Lots of leg space Friendly crew Clean aircraft"
Cons: "No ability to recline chairs Charge for carry-on baggage"
Pros: "I really enjoyed the camaraderie i shared with my fellow passengers. Adversity really brings people together."
Cons: "Frontier as a whole, I was unaware, is a 'not good' airline. Smallest seats I've yet experienced, no recline, no legroom. If you don't want to pay $35 to check a bag, it's cool they understand, they'll happily take $40 to let you carry a bag on. Well, not happily. More begrudgingly than happily. Customer service was poor, bordering on hostile from one sky waitress in particular. It's hard to blame the airline's employees for their poor attitude, as I would be disheartened and upset if I was surrounded by a plane-full of customers vowing to 'never fly frontier again'"
Pros: "Staff at ticket counter was very helpful and nice"
Cons: "When I booked my flight I was not aware that I had to pay for add ins, picking a seat, a carry-on etc. Self service kiosk didn't work, only one person working ticket counter and departure gate which delayed our take off."
Pros: "The trip was excellent, the flight boarded and took off on time, and we arrived early! Great flight"
Cons: "The seats are not angled to fit the figure of a person. The back of the seat leans back and the head of the seat is perfectly straight up. It meets at a point where that does not line up with the persons body height depending on the person. If you just leave it at one angle of give it the potential to lean back just enough, People will be that much more comfortable. I wasn't the only person who mentioned this on my flight, in fact I spoke with 3 people and overheard others complaints as well. One angle or at least a centimeter of space to lean back...I don't think it will mess with people behind them since there's no tv or entertainment and I think it will continue to bring more people into frontier."
Cons: "Paying 45 dollars for one checked bag"
Pros: "Boarded in zone 1 and didn't have issues with my bags"
Cons: "-extra charges for carry ons and in-flight snacks/drinks, horribly uncomfortable seats (no support or cushion, feels like I was sitting on a city bus), and a long-winded spiel on applying for a credit card with the airline. Overall there were far too many overhead announcements that made me begin to tune them all out (even ones that might have been important)."
Pros: "The staff were the only saving grace."
Cons: "There should be a place to mark horrifying. It always appears that Frontier is the least expensive until you get hit with all the little charges. We paid an extra 18$ each to choose seats, bad ones, and then the seat next to me is filled by someone who choose not to pay. Some folks paid $30 for a carry on and others just lugged uge free bags on. The flights are always delayed and the plane was filthy. I know there was no time for staff to do there short cleaning routine, this was not from a single flight,looked like floors and seat have NEVER been cleaned. UGH"
Pros: "Nothing about my flight was good. Our plane left late because frontier overbooked. So we were late arriving in Denver. I was asked to move seats because frontier messed up a family's seating assignment. Then when we arrived in Denver we sat in the plane for almost an hour because our gate wasnt available for our plane because we were late. I will NEVER fly frontier again. Terrible experience. I want my money back."
Cons: "1. Flight go pushed back a full day after spending 5 hrs waiting at the airport for any concrete news. 2. Ended up being told Frontier couldn't get me home untill 4 days later. 3. Paying Southwest about $600 for a same day flight back home. 4. Missed 2 full shift days of work."
Pros: "They totally failed. Never again. Totally ripped me off. Almost didn't make my scheduled visit with my daughters I only see twice a year. I had to spontaneously book emergency flight with United, which was great by the way. But cause was such short notice cost me 900 dollars. Frontier did not refund my checked bag fee and left my bag in la-la land. I found it. Thank God. Then they, frontier, only refunded me 50%. Do t k of why. Will dispute. What a headache, inconvenience, rip off, and waist of valuable time. I learned. You get what you pay for people."
Pros: "Price and quick boarding"
Cons: "Seats too hard; dirty bathroom; non-posted bag check fees"
Cons: "uncomfortable seating and the extra fees were ridiculous"
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "After boarding the plane, we sat on the tarmac for around 45 minutes while maintenance worked on the aircraft, with the flight crew refusing to give us any details as to what might be going on. We were late landing in Columbus as a result. Also, on the return flight, we somehow arrived an hour early and then had to sit on the tarmac again for close to an hour before we could get off the aircraft. This was a terrible experience with Frontier."
Pros: "The Airbus seats are the worst. Not comfortable at all. The crew on all of my flights were just OK. Not very professional compared to their competition."
Pros: "My 'one stop flight ' going turned out to be a 24 hour layover at the stop. No adequate explanation was provided to me or the 30 others stuck there. We were put up at a motel and most of us had no toothbrush, comb, or diapers and baby formula to get us thru the next day. A vacation day is precious. Staff gave erroneous information. The flight back was uneventful except that we waited at the gate for 45 minutes and then moved to another gate. This airline charges for everything, even a beverage."
Cons: "The food vouchers were inadequate for the prices at the hotel bistro."
Pros: "I dont know"
Cons: "Late getting out, upcharge for everything and anything. Cramped quarters"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "Where to begin in this one. To start the flight was delayed for about 10 hours. Life happens delays are inevitable but thy way frontier handled this was absolutely the worse customer service I have ever witnessed For starters after the initial delay the flight was removed from the departure board. Only a single intercom call was made regarding the delay of the flight. After this every passenger was left in the dark. Only by asking other airlines were we able to find our new exit gate and leave time. Tens out that was wrong as well and the frontier employee in staff left as soon as possible and refused to answer questions. I contacted customer support, who belittled me for missing my flight. I was told that the plane had departed at 1245 and that I should have been at the airport an hour before the departure to ensure I was on the plane. During this entire time I was staring at the plane right outside the window. There system had lost track of the plan. After being transferred to a supervisor he spent about 20 minutes trying to figure out where the plane was before he listened to me telling him t was right in front of my eyes. They lost a plane... He then attempted to explain the delay which I already knew more about than him from all of the other passengers pooling our knowledge. The supervisor (id#881311) refused to give me a guarantee or promise that e would provide a way for us to all be informed. As of this point no annocumebts ha been made, the departure board was empty, and all websites stated that we had left an hour ago. However after my phone call in about 10 minutes the website updated to show that we were now delayed until 730. Sill no information was provided in terminal. The entire flight proceeded to go to the ticketing counter in an attempt at some reimbursement for this inconvenience. There was only two frontier employees inside the entire terminal at the time. They had to be badgered for refunds. After hours we were finally given 15 dollars in food coupons... The only reimbursement for this entire debacle. No more information was provided until we boarded the plane around 830. The flight crew provided no reimbursement or sincere apologies and the entire passenger base was treated as if we were the issue. When leaving the aircraft the flight crew was unsure if which baggage claim we would be going to find our luggage so we were directed to three different claims Frontier is a disorganized uncaring and unflinching airline that is only still around by some unknown miracle. They have a 1 star review across the board on all review sites I could find and it was well deserved."
Pros: "Initially, inexpensive airfare"
Cons: "Nickel and diming the heck out of me. I ended up spending more with frontier in a cramped flight with no leg room or amenities and was over charged for baggage and denied a refund for the extra bag fee (a bag I did not have) I will never fly frontier again."
Pros: "I enjoyed the flight crew. I liked that they engaged the passengers. Very attentive! We boarded, took off, and landed with time to spare."
Pros: "The Airbus jet was nice."
Cons: "First time flying Frontier. Unaware of unusual fee for a small carry-on with Frontier. We took smaller backpacks instead to avoid the fees after calling the airline for absolute dimensions allowed. I know, buyer be ware, but Kayak should flag Frontier for customers. Disappointed in the anxiety created as I tried to check in for the flight the day before and only then learned about the carry-on fee at Frontier."
Pros: "We did not like all the extra costs for seats and baggage"
Cons: "We did not like the extra fees"
Cons: "The sits at very uncomfortable! I have long legs and have had my knees replaced and it was just not comfortable at all!"
Pros: "The crew was very accommodating and pleasant."
Cons: "If I had known that Frontier charges for carry on baggage, I would have chosen another flight. I usually fly United or Air France and I shall do the same from now on. There was 0 leg room and the "tray" is only a few inches deep, which hardly fits a laptop. I was surprised they didn't charge for the use of the bathroom. I am sure that is next. I have to say the majority of people around me were expressing the same sentiments. I was also assigned the middle seat in the very last aisle. A flight attendant moved me to a better seat as soon as he could. I was very happy it was only a 2 hour flight."
Pros: "Cheap flight"
Cons: "Late takeoff. Waited a half hour at destination to get plane to gate. Waited an hour for my bags"
Pros: "She's the best! She was the best airport employees I've ever dealt with. She made she we would make it to our flight when we were running late. She went above and beyond to help us and we couldn't have been more pleased. She was an angel sent to us to make that flight and we are just so thankful."
Cons: "The plane and flight were basic and you have to pay for your carry-ons but that's a standard budget flight I guess"
Pros: "Seats did not recline so I was not compromised by person sitting in front of me"
Cons: "No tsa!!! Seats uncomfortable"
Pros: "Nothing, it was a total scam. We bought a ticket in early spring at what we thought was a reasonable price only to find out I have to pay for my seat and bag separately which added an additionally $50."
Cons: "It felt like amateur hour from the crew to the captain. It felt like it was everyone's first flight which was not comforting as we experienced turbulence."
Pros: "VERY LITTLE. ONCE ON BOARD THE FLIGHT CREW WAS FINE. BUT SERVICE AT THE AIRPORT IS HORRIBLE IF YOU ARE ELDERLY AND NEED ASSISTANCE."
Cons: "VERY FEW, one, AIRPORT PERSONNEL TO ASSIST ELDERLY TRAVELERS NO CURBSIDE ASSISTANCE; NO WAY TO OBTAIN WHEELCHAIR AT THE CURB; ONE FRONTIER EMPLOYEE AT CHECK-IN AND SHE LEFT TO TAKE MY WIFE IN A WHEELCHAIR THROUGH SECURITY AND TO THE GATE"
Pros: "Plane was clean. Seats were very comfortable l, but not much leg room"
Cons: "They charge for for everything on this flight. Checking in - it cost $35 to check your bag in - $40 of you want to board with it! I do all the work and I have to pay more? Then to pick a seat - any seat - it is another $5 - $25. I understand that for premium seating (ext, etc) but any seat? Finally - drinks and snacks - that costs money too. While the fare looks cheap - beware of all the add ons. At a minimum, you have an additional $70 to $100 to the price of the ticket This does not turn out to be a cheaper price....beware."
Cons: "Told at the checkin desk it's $35 per person to "confirm our seats" -- two in the exit row as all that remained. Why? I paid $250 per person to confirm I wanted on the aircraft. I showed up 1.5 hours early to check in. Also told at the desk it's $40 per checked bag ($45 per carry on!). So when I get to the airport I'm forced to pay $150 more, just to fly to my destination. Credit card only. The lady checking in next to me paid me cash so I'd help her pay her extra fees. Not how to treat your customers. That's what I call a scam. If all this was in the small print, I missed it, and it was tough to find, having booked through Kayak. Won't be duped again. Goodbye, Frontier."
Pros: "I liked that I received a text from Frontier at 430am letting me know about the first delay. Unfortunately not everyone was as lucky as me. I liked how polite the crew was. I liked how they provided me with a $100 voucher to make up for my delayed flight and allowed me to use it to pay for my carry on bag and seat on my return flight."
Cons: "The flight was scheduled to take off at 8:00 but was delayed over 8 hours until 4:30pm. It was then delayed again and ended up take off at around 530pm. Then upon landing we were told there was no gate available and we ended up sitting on the runway about 20 minutes. So I got off the plan about 10 hours after I was scheduled to get off the plane. I also didn't like that you had to pay for everything: checked bags, carry on bags, snacks, soda. I mean I thought we would at least get one free cup of soda."
Pros: "Respact and on time"
Pros: "I was pleasantly surprised. They loaded back to front and folks were not carrying on much. You might give us a free soda. Overall excellent."
Cons: "Customer service was terrible and the whole ordeal was a nightmare. Next time pay a little more and fly with Delta!"
Pros: "Early arrival into destination"
Cons: "Having to pay for every service"
Pros: "Seat was uncomfortable. Flight Attendants were unprofessional. It was typical miserable experience on Spirit."
Cons: "The flight was majorly delayed."
Cons: "Spirit does not provide any complementary snacks or beverages and does not provide any entertainment devices for its passengers. Their seats do not recline and they have very little room in the regular economy seats. I expected all of this when I booked this ticket but those who don’t know should."
Cons: "Flight was delayed over an hour."
Cons: "be ontime not hours late"
Pros: "The crew was funny. We did airplane yoga and they made jokes."
Pros: "Quick and easy flight"
Cons: "Could not enter the gate, waited on the tarmac after arriving for a long time with rude flight attendants."
Pros: "Spirit did fine but the Russian group that sat near us talked nonstop and loudly and stood up in the isles a good portion of that time. They also had the lights turned on which made it impossible to rest ."
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Spirit is the below cheep. The seats are bare basic do not lend back even a little. They advertise as the low rate fare, but by the time you add in the carry on luggage fee, I could have used a different carrier. They charge even for water $3.00 for tiny bottle. The planes rattle during take off and landing. I would only fly Spirit again if I had an emergency to get to and had no other choice. I would pay 50.00 for a better plane. They put two more rows of seats in their plane-cramped, cramped"
Pros: "We were sitting 200 feet away from the gate and did not hear any announcements. About 10 of us miss the flight"
Pros: "boarding was fast"
Cons: "the kiosks didn't work, there was a long line, no one explained it was for baggage only, there was someone in another line that I found after I was in first line for 30mins doing the tickets, then she left w/o warning, no one at the counter for a while before another stepped in. Also, poor customer service, yelling at passengers to step up to line, waving them forth to counter rather than stating, 'next please'. Not friendly"
Pros: "We arrived at our destination."
Cons: "The crew was extremely rude and sexist towards a family with kids that were just trying to fasten their seatbelts safely. Instead of helping, they only got angry at the parents for not knowing how to get the seatbelts safely on their children. They repeatedly ignored the wife and kept addressing the husband as if she was not there. It was very uncomfortable to be around and seemed entirely unnecessary."
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "Not being able to pick a seat without being charged extra for it"
Cons: "Late 2 hours looking for additional mileage to add to my spirit credit card"
Pros: "Punctuality"
Cons: "Being charged for baggage"
Cons: "We had a 2 hour delay in boarding and then a 20 minute wait at the landing gate as they were all full."
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "Flight was delayed, Woman had an intact male Pit bull as a service dog ( therapy dog). The dog acted up 3 times in waiting area I do not know why they would let that dog in the cabin?"
Cons: "Our return flight was cancelled and we received no phone call or email of any kind letting us know. We had a wasted trip to the airport and my buddies vacation time was up the next day so it put him in the hot seat at work. They were very unprofessional at the check in counter while we were trying to figure out what to do. My friend who we were going to see in Denver had flown spirit a few months before to come see me in Texas. And he had some unnecessary issues also with delays and unprofessional personnel. I won't be using them again. Use a different airline."
Cons: "We were delayed for about three hours but there were no announcements or screens displaying that information. There was no indication that we were even at the correct gate. People had to walk up one at a time and ask to confirm what was happening and that we were all at the correct gate. Two hours after our flight was supposed to take off, there was finally an announcement letting us know that there was a delay and our gate would be changed so we needed to move out of the way so another flight could use the gate, but not to too far because they didn't know when or where our flight would be leaving from. It was chaotic and disorganized for no reason. I understand that delays happen but the lack of communication was unacceptable."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I bought this ticket directly from spirit. They scheduled my connection such that it would have been impossible to make. Apparently this was an "unforeseeable circumstance", so I was offered no accommodations even though there were no alternate flights available until two days later. The agent I spoke with changed his story about what could be done every time we spoke, and when I requested a refund, he was unable to print a receipt or any kind of confirmation paperwork or email whatsoever to prove to me that my ticket had been refunded. He was also unable to tell me the amount of the refund. I simply had to take his word for it that Spirit would process my refund for an unknown amount within 5 business days. Needless to say, i have doubts. This was absolutely unacceptable. I was forced to pay for an alternate flight on a different airline, and pay for an airport hotel for the night. I am beyond furious with spirit airlines and I have received unimaginably terrible customer service."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "The price of the flight was relatively inexpensive, however, after paying for a second carry on, checked bag and overweight checked bag (40 lbs not 50 lbs), this flight was WAY more expensive than other carriers with the same luggage. The bag fees were never explained during the booking process. The flight was delayed almost 2 hours due to other Spirit delays to Ft. Lauderdale, thus, instead of paying hotels and rebooking Spirit customers, Spirit decided to wait until every passenger boarded -- not caring that customers were missing connections in Denver. The ticket agent in Ft. Lauderdale was a right miserable so and so. I'll never use Spirit again."
Cons: "I know Spirit offers low fares and in return you pay for everything else, seats, carry-on bags, boarding passes (if you don't print yourself), drinks, etc. In knowing this I did my due diligence before this flight to make sure I wasn't going to be charged for things like the size of my purse (I measured it), etc. Upon check in for this flight, I was informed that I owed $30 because my checked bag was 43 lbs and Spirit has a weight limit of 40 lbs. The other customers in line were just as shocked. To me, the standard is 50 lbs. With that being said, in my research on Spirits website this was not clear. I think this sort of fee should be much more prominent. I am a "prepar-er" if you will and for me to not know this charge was coming tells me Spirit most likely makes a lot of money off of passengers regularly having to pay this unexpected fee at check in. The ticketing agent told me it happens daily after I asked him. This feels a bit like a scam, in my opinion. Spirit will say "It's on our website" and I'm sure it is but again, I don't feel like this charge for a weight that's standard is 50 lbs is clearly called out to passengers. I'm fine with no frills, I'm not fine with unexpected charges that I feel are under the radar until the 11th hour when you have no choice but to pay or repack. Uncool, spirit."
Pros: "The flight crew were very nice and professional"
Cons: "The check in process was horrific. Their website was not working so I was forced to spend more to print my boarding pass at the airport. I had no idea Spirit was going to be so uncomfortable. I really think a disclaimer in large print should be available prior to booking with them. Something like Attention: the flight you are about to book comes with very small, unpadded seats crammed closer together than most airplanes. You will be physically touching every person you sit next to. Even if you are a skinny person. The seats do not recline there is no Wi-Fi or on board entertainment. You will be nickel and dime to death so that in the end you won't actually be saving as much money as you tjought."
Cons: "Spirit broke my luggage. The staff was very rude. And hidden fees are everywhere. It's worth it to pay 20/25 more on a ticket with out hidden fees. Never again."
Cons: "That my bags are more expensive than my plane ticket"
Pros: "I liked the large airplane. We were all 3 seated together even though we didn't pay for seating. We weren't in the back. The seats were comfortable."
Pros: "Boarding is easy, actual flight price is ok"
Cons: "Baggage fees are outrageous. It makes a great ticket price equal the competition or higher. 55 for a carry on, 10 dollars to talk to someone at the counter if you don't use the kiosk. I will pay slightly more in the future to never use them again."
Pros: "On the opposite side of the helpful/friendly spectrum -there was one employee who heard my story and offered to let me use one of his free flights if I was charged for some reason. He waited while I went through the ticketing process again. That was VERY generous. I wish I had taken his name down."
Cons: "Did not receive a notification that my gate had changed to an entirely different terminal and I missed my flight. There was no way to even know/find where my new gate was located. They only had one Spirit employee at the gate that was on my ticket and she was busy checking the people in for another flight. Ladies at the correct gate were not friendly or helpful. Paid $200 to stay overnight in a hotel and I missed a day of work. The check-in/ticketing area for Spirit was a madhouse."
Pros: "Crew, communication was all great"
Cons: "The only negative was the seats were a little cramped. I am not a big guy and I found the seating a little narrow. Overall a good flight, great value. Will definitely fly Spirit again."
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "Everything was awful from the way they handled bags, to the communication about delays, to the delays themselves, to the failure to take care of passengers given the long delays. Before signing up for a Spirit flight, make sure you add the cost of checking carry-on bag, getting a seat assignment, getting any water during flight, boarding (yes they up charge for boarding). Then, make sure you factor in the small size of the airline which makes it far, far more vulnerable to weather delays - fewer planes, fewer pilots, fewer re-routes available. Also, add at least an hour to the end of each flight to get your bags if you do check them. So, you don't save money or time, and you're very vulnerable to weather and mechanical. With their organization this bad, I can only imagine how weak their mechanical is."
Cons: "Every thing"
Pros: "On time and staff very accommodating"
Cons: "No much leg room"
Cons: "I don't mind the bare fare, a-la-carte pricing. Its different but once I understood it, I could manage. On my flight to Ft. Lauderdale from Denver, I witnessed a male flight attendant being exceptionally rude to every person passing him while entering the plane. He then proceeded to belittle and talk down to each customer he talked to about moving jackets and correct placement of personal vs. carry on items. There was plenty of room in overhead bins once the plane was loaded. This flight attendant, talked to people as if we knew have rule he did and if they didn't he became aggressive and rude. At one point an older gentleman in his late 60's questioned what the rude flight attendant was saying and the attendant snapped. He screamed at the man and then threatened to have him removed for challenging what he said. I was afraid to ask for water or to even stand up because of how your flight attendant responded to an honest question. I have been flying for 30years and have never experienced such vile behavior on an airplane. The male flight attendant had brown hair was around 6ft tall, not big but not in good shape and wore glasses. I hope that he never is able to threaten people in flight again. The atrocious behavior i witnessed, has me never wanting to fly with spirit again. On the way home from Mexico, our flights were timed 1hr apart but yet it took 2+ hrs to go through customs. Do to this poor planning on behalf of spirit, we missed our flight and had to spend another unexpected night in Florida. I incurred charges for taxis, hotels, expensive food and missing work. When I spoke with spirit staff members they refused to help. One suggested I should pay money for a new flight. Its took me 5 employees to finally find someone who offered to fix the flights for the next day for no extra cost. I was offered no compensation for my inconvenience and time."
Pros: "easy and on time boarding, easy flight."
Cons: "I am lucky it was just for a 2 hour flight, seats were very uncomfortable"
Pros: "The price initially"
Cons: "The spirit luggage check in delayed me (the 120 minutes early I was there) before the flight - standing in line - by the time I got to the ONE gate agent she said I was too late to catch the flight and admitted it wasn't my fault but I would have to pay an additional $170 to book the next flight which was the following morning. Down hill from there. It took me an hour waiting on hold to speak to someone on the phone. The representative & then her supervisor could care less, by that time the rebooking charge had gone up to $215. It cost me $300+ to last minute book a low price room for the night, taxi back and forth from the airport (I had already returned my rental car). That doesn't include the return flight I paid for on a different airline or the refund I should have recieved for the RT trip I already paid for. Shameful (non)service spirit!!!"
Pros: "Friendly crew, new planes."
Cons: "Small, uncomfortable seats/armrests."
Pros: "I did like the price point of the tickets very little in delays and customer service was on point all the way around"
Cons: "The cost of baggage was three times as much as my ticket maybe bump the price of tickets up a bit and make two bags free a carry on and a check if it weighs more then say 40 lbs then charge a higher fee."
Cons: "My flight was booked for the wrong day. I only had one day selected on Kayak.com so I never thought to call in and verify time and date. I was signed up for text notifications but I never received anything."
Pros: "The crew was great. Especially when we had to wait out a rain storm that developed as we were heading for take off"
Cons: "I wish the seats reclined so I could actually get comfortable"
Cons: "There was a 4 hour delay for our Spirit airlines flight to Denver because there was a "smell" coming from the airplane. After 3 and a half hours Spirit decided to compensate for the delay with a $14 voucher to be used anywhere in the airport. Unfortunately by that time there were no restaurants or stores open, other than one tiny snack bar, rendering the voucher virtually useless. I will never fly spirit again."
Pros: "Overall this was a bad experience. Spirit forces you to pay $55 for a carry-on bag. I suppose I should have known this already, and I'm sure it was in the fine print of my ticket. So partly my own fault. But when you add in all the fees Spirit nickel and dimes you for, you could have purchased a ticket with a better airline for same price. In addition, the boarding process was slow and the staff was unprofessional. The flight attendants were rude, the seats do not recline at all, and I could feel a hard metal piece inside my headrest. I asked for a pillow but the flight attendant said none were available. I will not be flying Spirit again unless there are absolutely no other options."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "I spent 7 hours sitting in an airport with nothing to do spent more money at the bar in the restaurant and with my baggage then with the actual ticket cost plus I made it 9 hours later"
Cons: "To start, when we arrived at the Detroit airport at 5:30am for our 7am flight, the line to check bags was clear across the building. It eventually got to the point where they had to make a special line for our flight to check in at around 6:30am. Fortunately we were towards the front of that line and when we finally got through security we raced to our gate and made it just before they were about to close the doors. There were many people behind us still trying to make their way either through the check-in line or security and we tried to speak up and tell the flight attendants just that as they announced we were shutting the doors and about to push back. One lady sitting near us was on the phone with her friend whom she was traveling with that was at the gate along with a dozen other people trying to get on the plane. When we tried to tell the flight attendants to wait, one flight attendant had the dignity to come over to me and said "if my party wasn't on the plane then I could get off the plane." Finally, they opened the doors one last time and about 15 people came through, however, there were still plenty of open seats on a flight that typically is quite full so I'm certain many more missed the flight. Once we got to Denver it was no surprise that only about 12 pieces of luggage came through the carousel so more than half the plane was missing their luggage. We were then told that if we had a late check-in, which everyone who checked luggage did, then we would have to come back to the airport to retrieve ti. Fortunately, they made an exception for our flight and our luggage was delivered the next morning. All in all, I'm extremely disappointed and frustrated with the way Spirit handled everything, with the exception of finally agreeing to deliver our luggage. The lack of communication, efficiency, and concern, between everyone at Spirit, those checking people in, the flight attendants, the luggage crew, the person in charge of lost luggage, is so unacceptable. From now on, I will gladly pay more just so I NEVER have to fly Spirit ever again! They not only lost my business but also from those who were on the flight with us standing in line to file our lost luggage claim as well."
Pros: "Safety and crew."
Cons: "Lacking comfort"
Cons: "Too easy to miss that they charge for carry-ons, and charge for drinks and snacks too"
Pros: "The comedian crew member on this flight was absolutely my favorite part of the trip. He was entertaining and incredibly positive thru out the 4.5 hour tarmack stand still. His charisma and wit kept most of the passengers and crew members on point. He was just a happy go lucky guy with a good heart. Kudos to him!"
Cons: "Mother Nature was not kind and the humans closed down the Denver airport, avoiding any threatening interactions. It was most unfavorable being stuck on the tarmack for 4.5 hours, being charged a lot of money for crumby snacks, however I am grateful that I am still alive and did not have a more tramatic plane experience (aka a crash landing accident due to lightning). Over all, it was a pain in the butt, waiting to hear about updates (taking hours at a time to decide), and then getting redirected from Colorado Springs to Denver on a bus. My friend whom was picking me up from the airport was inconvenienced as well, but we tried to be positive about the whole experience. I don't ever want to fly with Spirit again, but because it was so inexpensive, I just rolled with the punches. You get what you pay for..."
Pros: "I loved the humor the crew worked into the mundane aspects of flying."
Cons: "I did not like having to pay an additional 45 dollars to bring on a cary on that seemed a bit steep in price point."
Pros: "Overall the web site looks like it was successfully intended to be attractive and it contains all the needed info."
Cons: "*Promising to answer a question "within 48hrs" is NOT OK when it is about checking in. *We SHOULD NOT have to register in order to be able to check in. Why is more than conf # and name needed unless it is to be shared or sold? *The needed info is scattered in many places on the site eg bag size, weight, and prices. *I was charged the "at checkin" price when I used the add baggage link before starting to check in; b/c I was within 24hrs? Purposely didn't start to check in yet so I wouldn't get the higher price."
Pros: "The initial price seemed fair."
Cons: "The airline lets you bring a purse for free. If you don't realize this policy when you book: there is an additional fee for a carry-on. Unless you book through Spirit, this policy is not well communicated. Beverages-- including water are associated with fees."
Pros: "Our flight got cancelled about 1 hour after it was supposed to departure, due to mechanical issues. Since Spirit doesn't have many airplanes we were redirected to rebook our flight which would not get us anywhere until Monday morning, if we use Spirit. They did offered flights with other airlines, but of course those were gone fast. I missed a race, asked if they could refund at least part of that fee and was told no. Crew was nice, honest and helpful."
Cons: "The honesty of the crew."
