Pros: "Everything good !"

Pros: "It was an hour shorter than normal"
Pros: "Great crew."
Pros: "This is the worst day of the year to travel. Hundreds of people waiting to catch flights to Seattle, which were delayed with no news of when they might fly. Alaska Airlines staff had way too to handle, but still found time to help a disabled person/passenger in need. Thank you."
Cons: "TSA had no time to help a disabled person, rather abruptly sending me from line to line to line, because I was disqualified from going through walk-through a certain scanner. Then was un-necessarilly angry with me for putting my Kindle on top of my laptop, to go through the scanner. If TSA had given clearer directions, I would have known how to place electronic devices in the plastic tub. Also they took my wallet from me to go through the scanned by itself. As TSA staff pushed belongings down the conveyor, the little dish holding my wallet turned over, credit cards and the like started to fall all over and under the machine. I started to collect my congtents and was told to stay put, and hold out my hands so they could swab my hands for explosives, and to not move while they put the swab in their sensing machine. Makes me want to not fly in the future."

I was waiting more than 1 hour at gate but no crew showed up. It was about 1 hour before scheduled flight to Sacramento. So I asked nearby crew again, I was told then to go to Alaska Airline customer service. The crew was very helpful to give me a boarding pass there."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Holding a plane for 20 minutes for flight attendants to show up. The flight was only 1.5 hours, we didn't really need flight attendants. On top of that, flight attendant Angel was pretty rude, told another flight attendant that she should make people wait when trying to get back to their seat and the drink cart is in the aisle. Ended up paying for in flight wifi to tell them my flight was late. Overal this was an awful flight."

Pros: "Everything went perfectly, staff was pleasant and accommodating. Flight was comfortable and smooth."

Pros: "They still had the door open as we rushed to catch the flight."

Cons: "Great"
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..."
Pros: "Flight arrived early!!"
Cons: "Guests with no overhead luggage should be able to exit first."
Pros: "Great experience"
Pros: "In-flight entertainment (if you brought a tablet or laptop with you), yummy gluten free pretzels, good flight attendants."
Cons: "A complimentary sandwich would have been nice for a 4 hour flight."
Pros: "accommodating and friendly staff food and drinks were good -I had a layover that was boarding before we had reached the terminal and the staff let me know and guided me about how to get to the other flight and let the other flight crew know so I wouldn't lose my flight. Super appreciative of this. :)"
Cons: "cramped seating warm / poor air circulation super hot in the cabin - this is probably because of Salt Lake City, rather than the plane though."
Pros: "I was able to do my check in and seat picking fast with no problem"

Cons: "Nothing."
Cons: "Overcrowded terminal, last minute gate changes, poor signage and confused staff."
Pros: "Daughter's first flight and the crew really made it a special experience for her."
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: "Short flight time"
Cons: "Delayed for 2 hours due flat tire. They should've checked tires before we boarded. Cabinets were almost full. I had a hard time to put my skateboard and backpack in a cabinet. Attendant didn't help out at all! It took over a minute to figure out to fit my stuff in there like Tetris. One passenger was upset that I took his bag out. It was frustrating when attendant didn't help to store my bag."
Cons: "Cramped"
Pros: "Quick, clean"
Cons: "I was in the back seat"
Pros: "service. Thank you."
Cons: "comfort seats were uncomfortable"
Pros: "Delta Club"
Pros: "Nothing. Literally nothing."
Cons: "EVERYTHING!! Packed like sardines with ZERO distancing for a four hour flight. Flight attendants were horrible and did nothing to mandate mask wearing. Literally watched a guy sleep nearly the entire flight with his mask off and the FA walked by him multiple times without saying anything. Will never fly with American after their abysmal attempt to keep us safe. I did not feel safe for a second on that horrendous flight. Definitely getting a COVID test and I will know where I got it from if I test positive. Also the seats are uncomfortable and it was a very bumpy flight (I understand that part cannot be avoided). I don’t understand how you cancel flights and bump people to other flights only for them to be SUPER packed. I thought at the rate of cases rising airlines should be doing a better job at taking safety precautions. Not American. Why do they think it’s a safe idea at this time to have my wife and I packed in with a total stranger for four hours? No social distancing whatsoever! Overall I cannot say a single good thing about this flight. Worst in my entire life"
Cons: "The flight was 2 hours delayed because there was a mechanical issue on the plane. We sat and waited on the plane for 1 hour while the Maintenance crew tried fixing the problem. After sitting there for one hour, they told us the problem wasn’t fixed and we have to change aircrafts. The other aircraft was all the way in terminal D (we were in terminal A) and the boarding process took a long time. Overall it was an awful flight and experience with American Airlines. I missed my mother’s birthday party because of the 2 hour delay."
Cons: "30 min to de-ice an E170? Why?"
Pros: "Seats felt thin"
Cons: "The WiFi I was terrible other than that great flight"
Pros: "Tim was great!"
Cons: "The a/c wasn't working. Flight attendants acted annoyed by the people flying, no connectivity to gogo inflight."
Cons: "Coach seats are cramped and little under seat space in window seats. Plus CMH de-icing was a mess (although not AA’s fault)."
Pros: "The service representative at check in was very helpful and went above and beyond to assist my husband and I. American Airlines was outstanding on all fronts."
Cons: "However my overall experience with kayak and csfare was poor as they made a mistake on the name on my ticket that was not found until the day of my international flight and once I got a hold of customer service after calling 4 different numbers... most did not have 24 hr service... they stated they were unable to assist me and had no other options or solutions. American Airlines tried to help and eventually were able to accommodate me through purchasing a new ticket and ensured my husband and I were still sitting together. Kayak and csfare basically told me sorry for your luck. I will not use this company again."
Pros: "Andres was so nice. Amazing actually"
Cons: "They boarded us then we had to switch planes. Delayed an hour"
Pros: "Take offs equaled lands"
Cons: "Dirty and tied plane seat way to tiely spaced. Disinterested crew. I hate stowage"
Pros: "The gate agent in Columbus was in a wonderful mood."
Pros: "Biscuits are awesome"
Cons: "WiFi is a little confusing. App didn’t work."

Pros: "Speedy, professional, clean, overall wonderful trip! Hoping for same upon return!"
Cons: "Late on hour"
Pros: "The seats were quite comfortable."

Pros: "Excellent service gate to gate."
Pros: "Everything happy and in time. Nice staff"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Delayed and didn't try to speed up the delay"
Pros: "It was o k."
Cons: "No complain"
Pros: "I arrived safely."
Cons: "The crew managed to serve a glass of water. No snack, not even a bag of pretzels. They managed to collect trash four times. Again, they barely acknowledged the passengers. What happened to customer service?"
Cons: "Delayed by 90 minutes."
Pros: "Fast and friendly"
Cons: "Never knew flying domestically with a company named American would be so impossible. A true joke. Never had such difficulties traveling about. Super unsatisfiee and will not be traveling with them again. I urge everyone considering to purchase other airlines as well."
Cons: "The delay in Columbus caused me to miss my connection and have to fly into LAX instead of LGB."
Pros: "Arrived early"
Pros: "Snacks"
Cons: "Could have been given more snacks for 3 hr flight"
Pros: "nothing really"
Cons: "crowded seats , packed flight,"
Cons: "My flight was delayed 4 times from Columbus to Chicago due to an ATC issue in Chicago. On the 4th delay announcement I had to rebook my international flight for the following day because my connection was leaving Chicago while I was still in Columbus. I had to rebook and get a hotel for the night on my own expense since American Airlines won't pay if it is weather related even though the weather was not the issue, rather air traffic control. The plane we got the next day was a smaller uncomfortable plane with zero entertainment and a crew that projected they would rather be anywhere else. I don't blame them, my experiences with American Airlines had been progressively getting worse."
Cons: "Flight was very delayed"
Cons: "3.5 hours late out of Columbus, minimal if any communication by gate agents, 45 minutes wait for gate in PHL, 15 minutes at gate to get jet bridge to plane."
Cons: "The long delay was terrible"
Pros: "Dunno"
Cons: "Dunno"
Cons: "It also didn't happen due to rerouting"
Pros: "Super service from a great crew!"
Pros: "Flight crew was awesome!"
Cons: "Connected from Cabo through Phoenix... seems that AA has really done a great job with passengers, but luggage is a whole other story, waited over an hour in Phoenix for luggage to come out, of course it didn't make the connection (had to clear customs in Phoenix)"
Pros: "Price was right"
Pros: "Flight crew was awesome! Very accommodating"
Cons: "All was good, flight attendants were exceptional"

Pros: "NA"
Cons: "NA"
Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Everything was perfect"
Cons: "That there is no internet"
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"
Cons: "Connecting flight was canceled had to pay over $1000 out of pocket to rebook next day. Missed a day in Yosemite and will not be reimbursed for our hotel. Not enough characters here to explain..."
Pros: "Flight was super cheap and the crew was very helpful"
Cons: "Not having the flight be 3 hours late might be a start"
Pros: "The crew was friendly enough and the flight left on time."
Cons: "The seats were probably the most uncomfortable thing ever but it's a get what you pay for situation. It's tolerable for a short flight at a cheaper price. The only really intolerable thing was towards the end the push the frontier credit card on you over the speaker."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Being delayed after we boarded flight to wait for less than 10 passengers.... Why would an airline disrespect every other passengers time for so few people is beyond me!!! Will not fly with Frontier again unless I have to in an emergency. My overhead bag was so far away from my seat I couldn't even get to it to get off the plane. Horrible service, no ammeneties or even an I'm sorry. Old plane and snacks that people bought stunk. Passengers should be limited on alcohol because the drunk in front of me was miserable to listen to for 3 hours on a 2 hour flight."
Pros: "Staff was courteous and accomadating"
Cons: "My boarding pass showed incorrect gate number. Almost missed my flight"
Cons: "I like everything."
Pros: "The crew was super nice, that’s about it."
Cons: "Boarding process, accommodations, uncomfortable seats and very little space. I had a family emergency and this was the only flight I could catch. Will avoid this airliner in the future."
Pros: "Cheap; smooth landing"
Cons: "Screaming children; no leg room"
Cons: "I am appalled by the poor customer service provided by Frontier. Their staff is very ignorant and unprofessional. It is very much worth the extra money to fly with another airline."
Pros: "That it was a nice smooth flight."
Cons: "That you had to pay for everthing, that fact i waited over 20 minutes after the drinks and snacks been passed out."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Seats comfort"
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: "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."
Pros: "plane and crew were very nice."
Cons: "seats are not very comfortable for a long flight."
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: "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."
Cons: "rude stewardesses. uncomfortable seats. maintenance issues"
Pros: "The humor of the pilot, really was a surprising experience"
Cons: "Water should be complimentary at least"
Cons: "Paying 45 dollars for one checked bag"
Cons: "Flight delayed 1. 1/2 hours. Baggage claim area changed three times /Crew was excellent"
Pros: "price"
Cons: "Could not hear the announcements, could be a problem in an emergency."
Cons: "I am very disappointed that when I checked in I had to purchase a seat for 16.00, apparently if you buy a ticket it does not mean you have bought a seat on the airline???? This is outrageous. I also had to pay 25.00 for a carry on. I have never had to pay for a carry on. Needless to say I do not think I will ever fly Frontier again. I am very disappointed in Frontier Airlines."
Pros: "Good deal"
Cons: "Easy board ing"
Pros: "This time my bags actually came fast. And the staff was nice and caring this time."
Cons: "Of course the small seats."
Pros: "Price and quick boarding"
Cons: "Seats too hard; dirty bathroom; non-posted bag check fees"
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: "We were informed well of equipment delay. Boarded quickly after plane passengers deplaned and plane was cleaned"
Cons: "Middle seat I was given was tight and my knees, (I'm a tall woman ,) were banged against seat forward of me. Not comfortable plus no ability to recline seat was not pleasant."
Pros: "Flight attendants were very friendly, showed care for passengers and their needs."
Cons: "Flight delayed, not even a snack offered...or drink!"
Pros: "The crew was great and the plane was roomy."
Cons: "There were charges for everything! Carry-ons, seating, and even all in-flight beverages."
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: "Check-in went quickly and all personnel very courteous. I was assigned a middle seat and when I requested a window seat on the return flight, they were very accommodating. The cabin was very clean and the flight crew very professional and friendly. Both flights were on time, I might add. Would definitely choose Frontier for my next flight."
Cons: "I have nothing negative to say about Frontier."
Pros: "I dont know"
Cons: "Late getting out, upcharge for everything and anything. Cramped quarters"
Pros: "Price"
Cons: "Very bare bones. Every time you look they wanted to sell you something else. Buy water, buy a snack, sign up for our credit card."
Pros: "Cheap and convenient"
Cons: "Both times flights were delayed by minor maintenance or paper issues. Seems Frontier is not so efficient at preparing flights mechanically and paperwise as other airlines. Or maybe they had to run to Home Depot for a part. Either way it seemed they should have anticipated the minor issues earlier rather than delay the flight."
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."
Cons: "3hours delay"
Pros: "The people who were suppose to be check me and my friend in were not on time they told us we could take a carry-on but then charged us both ways (to and from) the plan was delayed going and coming back workers were rude and not polite at all. Called customer service and emailed them they said they could not do anything about it. I even took picture and video of the workers coming in and out of the door playing on their phone sitting in the wheelchairs and they said they still could not do anything. When walking up to ask question the works had really bad and pissy attitude then after boarding we sat on the run way for another 2-3 hr after already being delayed but 3 hrs inside the airport they change you for everything don't give any complementary snacks or drinks"
Cons: "I didn't like it at all The people who were suppose to be check me and my friend in were not on time they told us we could take a carry-on but then charged us both ways (to and from) the plan was delayed going and coming back workers were rude and not polite at all. Called customer service and emailed them they said they could not do anything about it.

Pros: "We reach on time"
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that we were on the runway almost an hour after we landed"
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: "Can't beat the price."
Cons: "Smooth flight but uncomfortable seating"
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: "Crew, plane comfort"
Cons: "Flight delayed for no real reason at destination (given as culprit)"
Pros: "The flight crew was friendly and attentive. The plane was immaculate. The pilots kept us informed and made a great landing. Every Frontier employee that I came in contact with was terrific. As a former stewardess and ticket agent I am very picky!!!! I loved my jobs with the airline and had great fun with the passengers/customers while giving good service. Lots of KUDOS to all the Frontier people that I came in contact with. Will fly with you again. The first and last time that I flew Frontier was in 1961 connecting from a United flight in Denver to Frontier going to United's stewardess school in Cheyenne,Wyoming! Sincerely, Pat Ollinger"

This flight was not full so we were able to get some space. I slept well enough through most of the flight. I used my iPad to watch Netflix I downloaded. All in all, I wouldn’t complain about the flight. It went well.

Pros: "The crew did a good job for a short flight."
Cons: "I’ve been in uncomfortable seats before on other airlines. However I’ve never been in seats that didn’t recline at least a small degree. When they say Budget airline, they mean it. The plane literally felt like it was going to fall apart on takeoff and landing. Rattling from multiple Compartments and the worst whining of the engine I’ve ever heard. It was a bit unsettling as well as unnecessary. If the mechanics can’t quiet things down and tighten the compartments to stop things from making that much racket then Spirit needs to take the plane out of commission. Not a smooth quiet flight for sure. It would be hard to recommend Spirit airlines to anyone."
Pros: "Crew was wonderful"
Cons: "Overall room"
Cons: "flight was delayed for three hours, not for weather but for a mechanical problems. i'm just happy we didn't have to wait on the plane or for the plane to be replaced"
Pros: "Quick boarding process"
Cons: "Don’t board us to sit in the uncomfortable warm plane when the pilot is 45 minutes delayed!"
Pros: "The crew was efficient with the exception of being told there was a full flight with plenty of seats available. That said, they were able to accommodate a much needed change, so I'm appreciative of that."
Cons: "The delay of 4 hours is such a common occurrence among Spirit, it's insane. I'm not sure why things are always delayed, c acned, or rearranged on this airline, but their planner needs to be reassigned."
Pros: "Seat was uncomfortable. Flight Attendants were unprofessional. It was typical miserable experience on Spirit."
Pros: "Crew moved me because I have a service animal. Then offered the guy they moved compensation for moving him. But not me. Huh."
Cons: "Anything. Everything. Spirit sucks."
Pros: "Aeroplane"
Cons: "Better cleaning please"
Pros: "Absolutely terrible customer service and process from Spirit."
Cons: "The boarding process, the attitude of the staff, the comfort of the plane..."
Pros: "No one sat next to me."
Cons: "I missed my connecting flight that costed me $700 from work."
Cons: "Left on time."
Cons: "Multiple delays. Better communication"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Worst airline"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They said someone called in the middle of the night using my name and they let them cancel my flight. No refund, no other flight. I had to walk over to southwest and purchase a $600 flight just to get to my destination."
Pros: "Fast, efficient, comfortable, cheap"
Cons: "We had to change gates last minute"
Pros: "The ease of bording pass."
Cons: "No water on flight."
Pros: "Got on the plane quickly. Crew good. Arrived early."
Cons: "The ticket price- way too much. No options for direct flight time. Had to pay for luggage."
Pros: "Pilot was friendly and hilarious with his introduction."
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "The flight itself was fine."
Cons: "The unexpected delay, overbooking and paperwork mishaps. The flight was supposed to leave at 8 am. Got an email at 5 am saying the flight was delayed two hours for no given reason. Then before we were booking they announced the flight was overbooked by 4 people. That added another time 10 minutes. Then when we’re on the plane it took another 20 minutes for paperwork that wasn’t done correctly. So with no weather issues my scheduled flight at 8 am didn’t take off until 10:55 am."
Pros: "It's cheap"
Cons: "Extra costs for everything"
Cons: "They charge for everything from bags to snacks. We ended up on the airplane for 9 hours for what was supposed to be a 2 hr flight and the only thing they did was give everyone one snack size biscotti and a cup of water. We were on the plane through lunch and dinner hours and that was thier answer."
Pros: "All went smoothly"
Cons: "Na"
Cons: "I didn’t like that I had to pay to check my luggage and to also choose a seat. I think it’s absurd that you have to pay for an isle seat or window seat. What is the purpose of the ticket i purchased, only to board the plane ??. I’m surprise you do not charge your passengers to use the bathroom, since everything else we are charged for."
Cons: "They didn’t let board no one at counter"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Pay for snacks"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The delay"
Cons: "I was uncomfortable the entire flight. I felt nickled and dined. I probably won't fly spirit again."
Pros: "The flight crew was very friendly."
Cons: "We waited in our seats after boarding for about an hour or more. We were 30 minutes late to Tampa. The seats didn’t recline which made relaxing for the flight and wait time difficult. Thanks Emily"
Pros: "Everything was just as I expected it to be - no surprises. You literally get what you pay for. Not a bad trip, just no frills."
Pros: "I packed a personal item bag that had all I needed for the next few days. I didn’t have to pay for any carry-on. That was great! I was in & out of the airport quickly. I even got assigned (at random) a window seat. Very pleased with that experience."
Cons: "The food that you can buy is basically just snacks (from my understanding). No real food. If you’re really hungry, just wait until you land? Or eat before you hop on the plane."
Cons: "The delay in an hour and a half"
Cons: "Seat didn't recline. No entertainment or food options. Waited 40 minutes at the gate to deplane... very frustrating."
Pros: "Left on-time, arrived early and smooth the whole way. Great and friendly staff and plane was very clean"
Pros: "Very hot (male) crew."
Cons: "cost of baggage"
Pros: "The plane seemed safe and the flight crew were human"
Cons: "An hour plus delay at New Orleans due to weather at O'Hare turned into an extra 40 minutes dickering around the runways waiting for a gate. Also, as we approached final descent, we were told to return our seat backs to their upright position, which is kind of a dick move because the seats on this plane don't recline. Too much A/C."
Cons: "Luggage prices are ridiculous I paid $187.00 roundtrip, customer service is very SLOW. For some reason I got kicked out of the system on my connecting flight from Orlando, luckily they had seats but told me and my husband we would have to sit on the emergency exit seats. I hope not to take Spirit ever again."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed until the next day in the afternoon. Spirit had no hotel vouchers left when we finally got to the counter. They offered no assistance what so ever and it was 4:00 am. when everyone was very tired. Flew home on American . Lost a whole day of wages."
Pros: "I made it to my destination"
Cons: "Worse customer service experience ever!"
Pros: "Fliight was on time in overall everything was ok."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Crew was very rude to one of the passengers seated behind me."
Cons: "FLIGHT WAS CANCELLED, HAD TO BOOK WITH ANOTHER AIRLINE"
Pros: "The crew was great! They all had a great attitude and made our flight fun. They were engaging and in tune with my needs."
Cons: "Check in was awful. There were multiple lines and it was confusing. Lines were very long."
Pros: "Boarding was efficient"
Cons: "The planes were alarmingly old. They were not comfortable and while I'm sure they do safety checks, there was so much flexing, rattling, and groaning that it did not feel safe. On our way out of the country - they did not have pens to fill out the customs forms, and told us that if we made a mistake we were out of luck because they didn't have extras. It should be more clear (before purchase) that the price for any bag (even a carry on) is so high - it raises the price of the ticket $100 which is significant On arrival in US they NEVER told us what carousel our bags were on, it was not posted, even on the carousel... it took us forever to find them"
Cons: "Spirit charges for every single little thing smh."
Pros: "Got home safely"
Cons: "Late leaving Fort Lauderdale Terribly small and uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "Can't beat the rate. If you are traveling light, this is the way to go."
Cons: "Seats are not large, they pack you in there to make this a good rate."
