Cons: "Delta.... they’rrrrrr Grrrreaaate!"
Pros: "Most of the crew was great with the exception of curbside check-in in Denver."
Cons: "Curbside needs to stop chasing cash tips and do their jobs. If they focused on that tips would be easy to come by. The curbside attendant that took my bag didn’t even bother to check my id. He asked me my name and asked where my destination was. I told him Cincinnati as a layover then LaGuardia where he said that was wrong. He then proceeded to print a boarding pass that wasn’t mine and load my bag into the conveyor. Not 5 mins go by when I realize what happened I wound up having to go to special services to rectify the situation. Which ultimately consisted of me waiting another hour in LaGuardia to get my bag. Please delta have these curbside handlers actually want to do their job and stop chasing cash tips."
Pros: "Crew was very pleasant. Boarding and deplaning was smooth and easy!"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and efficient."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Idk terrible flight experience with delta"
Pros: "I think Delta is upping its game, and I’m pleased to see that. Almonds for snacks, phone info about the state of your checked bags—good stuff."
Cons: "Of course the seat was not “super comfortable,” but whe you pick Economy, you know that."
Pros: "Availability of WiFi, a charging port and media options puts Delta a step (or two) ahead of their competitors. The professionalism of the crew, as well as the complimentary food/beverage options are also excellent."
Cons: "Not the airlines fault, but my 6’4” frame doesn’t fit very well in a middle main cabin seat."
Pros: "We arrived eventually."
Cons: "Flight delayed three hours. Payed extra for an earlier flight. Very disappointing."
Cons: "Delayed 4 hours"
Pros: "Flight left on time and landed on time"
Pros: "Quick flight...ahead of schedule"
Cons: "Cheese It’s are boring...miss the snack mix"
Pros: "Nothing exceptional stands out"
Cons: "Flight was not on time"
Pros: "Comfort + was nice."
Cons: "Had a middle seat between two other men. I was given my seat by the gate. It would have been nice if they placed my more strategically. That might be asking too much but seems reasonable."
Cons: "Choice of healthier snack"
Pros: "Good airframe."
Cons: "3+ hours delayed; didn't arrive until 3AM."
Cons: "Seats are so small. Flight was delayed."
Cons: "Couldn't believe the flight attendant walked around with a tray of snacks and bananas. When I asked for the banana, she said, "Oh I'm sorry, those are for First Class only". Really?"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I bought a ticket thinking i bought it through kayak but I actually bought a ticket through a third party in India. Where no one spoke good English. I called the agency to find out if I needed a Visa for my visit to Australia and the told me no. So when I showed up to the airport I didn’t have the right documents and I MISSED MY FLIGHT. Also the wouldn’t just change my flight and charge me the change flight fee. They cancelled my flight entirely and made me buy a whole new ticket!!! Worst flight experience I’ve ever had and this is not my first time flying to Australia or out of country."
Cons: "The seats were in bad condition, I was surprised as Delta usually has well cared for interior and exterior airplanes."
Pros: "Professional appearance of flight staff accommodating and sincete"
Pros: "The flight attendants were all helpful and pleasant. The seats were comfortable. We were provided with plenty of liquids."
Cons: "The landing was pretty tough and we took off almost a half hour late."
Pros: "Very friendly gate attendants helped us fix the problem that our frequent flyer number had not been entered on the boarding pass. This may have been because of the booking co., Just Fly."
Cons: "Would have liked more seat options, like when I book on Delta's website. Didn't have enough advance warning."
Pros: "Food and entertainment was good"
Cons: "The bathroom I used was disgusting."
Pros: "Check in Denver super helpful Gate staff hustled to turn around flight Flight crew excellent"
Cons: "Flight delayed, almost missed international connections"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Frontier canceled the flight. Delta delayed the flight that I rescheduled. One of the worst traveling experiences I have had in a long time. My day started at 3:30am. I’m just now going to my hotel at 12:40 am"
Cons: "Was unclear which zone was boarding. Legroom was comprised when passenger in immediate row ahead reclined seat early in flight."
Cons: "Engine problems-2 hour delay"
Pros: "The fact that there was a screen for movie selections and a charging port for my phone and the flight attendants were super nice"
Pros: "Comfortable seats. Good entertainment"
Cons: "Going to Denver was delayed and now return trip delayed We were give 3 separate reasons. Poor communication. Just telling me a flight will be delayed is not communication. Lack of a free snack was disappointing. May have to rethink flying Delta next time."
Pros: "Great people and crew early arrival nice passengers"
Cons: "Poor Delta DEN counter agent experience. Name on ticket didnt match Delta profile name nor TSA [rofile name. Delta counter agent would do nothing, except blame TSA. Would not check ticket name vs profile name. Happened two consecutive flights. Flight tomorrow morning has no TSA Pre clearance on boarding pass. This will be three consecutive flights. Also seated me next to a person who needed 2 seats to himself. Please never seat me next to a passenger who cannot fit in their own seat. I am switching to SWA."
Cons: "The crew forgot to turn the heater on in -3°F creating a situation where the lavatory water lines froze. This caused a two hour delay which made me miss the second leg. Because I missed the second leg I was put on the very last flight out of ATL and got to spend Xmas eve in the airport."
Pros: "On two of the legs of the trip they notice I was a tall person with long legs and upgraded me to seats with more leg room!! I didn't even ask. Thank you."
Cons: "On the way back there were open seats with extra leg room and I asked the gate attendant if it was possible to switch my seat to one with more room and they said they only could if I paid extra."
Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "The Entertainment sucked. Again I was sitting in comfort class which in theory should buy you more comfort and better entertainment. There was a ton of movies from the 90s and the same movie selection from about 6 months ago when I traveled with them. Also, what is going on, with having to use your own cell phone to watch movies on the plane? Whatever happened to the screens in the backseat of the front seat? I ended up with neck pain from trying to watch a movie on my phone. Delta has become very cheap. It is going into some serious decline."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Let me just say that I’m a loyal Delta costumer until now. The flight attendants (the two women) were an absolute nightmare. They were so rude and condescending. I was carrying with me my service dog and a bag containing an expensive medication (it couldn’t go on the top bin). Despite being in the comfort class and having the seat next to me empty, we were tight for space. The flight attendants were unreasonable and forced me to put my medication on the top bin despite the fact I had told them it was extremely delicate, that it that to go upright, and that I needed to keep it with me. They did not listen and pressured me into giving them the medication. The medication could have easily gotten broken. Thankfully it didn’t but this is no way to treat a human being."
Pros: "Entertainment system is awesome and similar to what I usually see only on international flights."
Pros: "Was initially hoping to fly a US airline but will now look for Aeromexico first. Exceeded my expectations!"
Cons: "The layover in Mexico City was a bit long and the airport was not so great"
Pros: "Ran smoothly, typical flight, everything was as to be expected. Everyone was polite and courteous."
Cons: "Tight seats, boarding process was a bit lengthy, and we hit some turbulence (obviously beyond anyone's control). The pilot and crew handled it well."
Pros: "Most comfortable flight I have taken in some time. Spacious seat, power, good entertaiment, attentive flight crew. On time. Not usually a Delta flier, but times and destination made Delta the choice. Turns out a great choice."
Pros: "What a city.. Unique for hell sure..."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The crew was beyond friendly and courteous. Lots of leg room."
Cons: "I was an older plane, it was louder than our flight down to Atlanta. Nothing they could do about it, but a slight annoyance."
Pros: "Friendly Staff"
Cons: "Check in was very hectic due to limited staff and getting bumped by the red carpet flyers. Boarding is always a little congested due to the lines. Better snacks please!!"
Cons: "I fly Delta quite often, and am usually pleased with their service, but the morning of June 23 was terrible. I got to the airport in Denver at 5:30 am for a 7:30 am flight to Atlanta, and the line to check a bag was about 40 people long. I waited 55minutes to check my bag, as they kept moving the ski priority people, and people in danger of missing their flight, to the head of the line. There were obviously not enough Delta workers on staff to process all the flights at that time."
Pros: "Everything else fine."
Cons: "Made me check my bag - even though ther was plenty of overhead bin space."
Pros: "The cabin crew serving the main cabin were exceptional. They were efficient, kind and FUN. We were an hour late leaving and 2/3 of the plane was worried about tight connections. They handled it with grace giving each person their departing gate and asking everyone to let a gentleman off with a 10 minute connection. They made the flight memorably enjoyable."
Cons: "Being an hour late isn't ideal and I understand that it wasn't their fault (the plane was late arriving into Denver. Those things happen. They still goto people to Detroit in time to make connections--barely."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and accommodating, and service was good"
Cons: "I purchased a basic economy ticket and upon checking in, my Delta app said my seat was unassigned and I had to get my boarding pass at the airport. I checked back later and the app had me as number 7 on the standby list. I called Delta (wait time 3+ hours... my flight was in 3), and then the Delta app support where I was able to get through to someone. She told me that the ticket I purchased over a month in advance did not guarantee me a seat on the plane (???). She said that if I was bumped from the flight they would reschedule me for the next morning. She was pretty rude and made it seem like I had a 50/50 shot of getting on this plane. I rushed to the airport in hopes that I would be the first from Standby there, and the gate agent told me that I was fine and would board right after first class and be assigned a seat then. Great. Once I got my seat assignment, I board to find out there is someone else sitting in my seat...... They eventually called the desk and had her moved, but it was the weirdest boarding experience I've had.. and I've flown Spirit. These planes that Delta fly's are SO OLD. Both times I have flown Delta the "turbulence" has been so bad and cold air was blowing right on my the whole flight with no option to turn it off (it wasn't from one of the vents, but from the side). Someone close to me works for Delta and I know for a fact that some of their engines blow mid-flight.. and they tell the passengers that it's turbulence.. so that doesn't make me feel very safe. I won't fly Delta again if there is another comparable option."
Pros: "The flight attendants were so nice and accomadating. Even came by to refill our waters! I've never been on a flight with such friendly flight attendants!"
Cons: "I drove 5 hours to get to the airport and unfortunately ended up delayed because of traffic and slow shuttles from parking. I arrived 1 hour before the flight, but security was so slow I didn't get to the gat until 10 minutes before arrival. There were no gate agents present and despite banging on the gateway door and other Delta agents at the adjacent gate, no one helped me. I can only surmise that they had already given away our seats, which were award tickets, GAINED BY BEING A LOYAL DELTA CUSTOMER. The gate agents were unapologetic and useless at rebooking, and I bought a ticket from Southwest instead. As i was trying to get to my sister's wedding, and repeatedly told the agents this, their behavior was particularly abominable. DELTA, YOU'VE LOST A LOYAL CUSTOMER."

Flight attendant for first class is definitely not a morning person. Oh and the WiFi DID NOT WORK!

Better food please

The flight was delayed for five hours due to airplane issues.

Entertainment was very plentiful, staff were courteous. Seating was HORRIBLE. That is the most cramped I’ve ever been on any flight …Jet Blue and Spirit included. Very uncomfortable for a six hour trip.

The entertainment box wasn’t working. The food was mediocre. The fruit was warm. The tiny salad was good. The champagne wasn’t cold. I really expected more from First Class.

It was all good. Thanks

Delayed little by little, so there was no chance to sleep longer or go out to eat. Missed connection flight and did not offer allocation, had to request it and $12 for lunch dinner and breakfast. No transport to hotel provided so there is another $120 in uber to get there.

Pros: "Yes made sure mask was in place"
Cons: "No"
Pros: "empty plane"
Cons: "food"
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Lots of empty seats... during covid/social distancing there should only be 2 ppl in a row especially if there is room...it was crowded and not consistent with signs posted saying stay 6 ft apart"
Pros: "We didn’t crash and die. That’s the only positive."
Cons: "Before we boarded I listened to a couple described how they always went ahead in line at boarding because no one ever stopped them. They described how they waited until group 3 was called and then went right through. While we were waiting, we watched them do it again. If you need to cram people into tiny spaces to be profitable, then you cannot allow them to make it worse by putting back their seats. I spent 90 minutes with a seat back jammed into my chest. We were ignored when handing out snacks, probably because we were invisible behind the seats pushed in our faces. It was one of the most miserable flights I’ve experienced."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Had to change our plans, and AA wouldn't give us a refund. We never got on the plane but had to pay for the tickets anyway. I'll never fly AA again."
Pros: "We were allowed to board early with my father, who is disabled."
Cons: "Denver airport was a nightmare with my disabled father. We were given a “wheelchair” but no escort through a nightmarish security scene. Airport is terribly designed, lacking clear signage and navigation. TSA was a disaster and no one seemed remotely concerned about my father’s comfort or needs."
Cons: "The flight was delayed which caused us to miss our flight in London our family was delayed for 12 hours"
Pros: "The plane was super comfortable"
Cons: "Long check-in lines in Denver - there were two sky caps outside who had no line which allowed me to reach my gate in time. Otherwise I may have missed my flight"
Cons: "We are delayed 7.5 hours dues to mechanical issues with our plane and told we would have to wait or book another flight the following day. American Airlines sucks!!!!"
Pros: "The flight was on time."
Cons: "The seats are absolutely horrible. I feel crammed like a sardine in the plane. Seriously, can we adjust the seat widths and distance to the seat in front and make them a couple inches bigger?"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and accomodating."
Cons: "As a handicaped disabled not able to walk and should be using a wheel chair,as I know from my many previous travels with other companies like lufthanza, klm..etc, I used to be the first traveller to go to the air craft when loading it to take off and the last one who would be leaving it after landing. Even when going through the check and security points I used to go in a special route especially for the handicaped but going with all other normal travelers lines with such amount of time waiting and crowdness is completely inconvenient. what happened through the trip was quit different , going with the travelers or after when they are boarding the craft make it very hard and time consuming , Wish you take care of it, as it's a very important handicaped service. Thank you for taking the time to read my comment"
Pros: "American"
Pros: "I liked the room."
Cons: "There was no entertainment. Could not get seats together."
Cons: "Two hour delay out of Denver, no crew."
Pros: "There was nothing to like about the way this sudden last minute cancellation was handled."
Cons: "I expected at least an offer of some kind of compensation for the inconvenience. it didn’t and hasn’t happened thus far."
Pros: "Flight was comfortable and enjoyable. Entertainment was great lots of films to choose. Service by the flight crew was excellent"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "This was a nighmare!"
Cons: "My flight Paris/London/Manchester?Chicago was the mos impleasant experience I ever had. On July the flight was schedule for 9...pm then delayed for two hours because of a fire, other passengers said, in London. At around 11pm, we were asked to line up for boarding. We stayed on line for an hour and fnally to be told the flight was cancelled. We were treated less than animals by British Airway. No ACCOMODATION!!!!!!!! No ACCOMODATION!!!!!!! We slept on benches at the airport. To be fair to you, I will not recommend British Airway to anyone."
Cons: "American Airlines has terrible customer service. We were unable to board our flight at the Philadelphia airport because when we arrived (almost 2 hours before our flight) the ticket counter was already closed for the evening. No one from American Airlines could help us. We were left stranded at the ticket counter until it reopened at 3:15 am. We are very disappointed and disgusted with the poor service we received from American Airlines. After hearing multiple horror stories from others, it is safe to say we will never fly that airline again."
Pros: "Great service, friendly staff. Plenty of in-flight entertainment options"
Cons: "N/A"
Cons: "The vegetarian meal is always vegan, I miss the dairy :("
Pros: "Free in-flight entertainment. Like that in-flight entertainment is available on users device, rather than screens in headrests. Staff were courteous and friendly."
Cons: "Flight delayed d/t computer glitches and problems in NC. Once we eventually boarded, we were forced to check our carryon luggage d/t lack of space."
Pros: "Good is that they sent you to Finnair to correct AA created break in service...why would they pay for it? AA is just an operator per itinerary! Why would you care if ppl get help with connections!"
Cons: "Checked in online on Finnair and automatically for the second connecting flight...and not the first -AA. So, had to check-in again for the first flight at the terminal. Board passes were printed 2 out of 3 by AA and both had errors - wrong gate for the first flight and no boarding info for the second connecting flight - just blank! AA did not provide connecting info until I found an unoccupied employee at the terminal and customer service lines were about 20 people in 2 locations I went to. The connecting info should be in the itinerary they said at customer service...nope, it was not there either!"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Broken plane, re-route and conflicting inaccurate email updates."
Pros: "Entertainment on screens"
Cons: "The gate agent made us starting in boarding group 6 out of 9 to check sizes of bags in the size box and she got into a verbal fight with another passenger. One guy told her she could board but the gate agent said no it didn't fit and she couldn't board. Then the agent claimed she had to gate check her bag and claimed there were no overhead spaces left. So everyone after that had to gate check. When I boarded there were at least 8 empty bins and I had not even gotten to my seat in row 22. The gate agent lied and slowed down the entire boarding process because she want to win a fight and show dominance over a passenger."
Pros: "The helpful steward"
Cons: "The bumpy ride"
Pros: "fairly comfortable, crew was helpful"
Cons: "Having to use my phone for entertainment, with no place to plug it in"
Cons: "A passenger caused a delay in security, and as I'm rushing for the gate, the agent closed the door and told me I couldn't board. She then marked me as a no-show, while she was standing right next front of her. I had to spend the next 4 hrs on the phone, trying to get my tickets sorted out. Then, upon arriving at Heathrow,... No luggage. They told me it was still in Chicago. Upon finally receiving my bags, I find them full of sawdust and sand, and several items damaged. I will NEVER fly American Airlines again, and I will highly recommend to my friends and family to avoid them like them plague. Horrible service! Nothing but a run-around and not once did the agents apologise, even after admitting that my problems on this journey were due to a mistake made by one of their agents."
Cons: "I'm not sure where the problem was - whether with AA or Royal Jordanian, but my luggage did not make it to Amman with me. In fact, there was a whole group of passengers traveling on American from different US cities, switching to RJ in Chicago, whose luggage did not come on the flight to Amman. My advice: be sure to pack enough for a couple of days in your carryon - and don't accept an offer to check your carryon to its final destination!"
Pros: "Comfortable seats, good legroom."
Cons: "Not enough coffee for breakfast."
Pros: "Boarding and flight were on time."
Cons: "This was a BA flight on an American Airlines plane. Very small crowded and uncomfortable. My husband is 6'2" and barely fit in the seat."
Pros: "The crew was awesome."
Cons: "You guys lost our luggage!"
Pros: "All good, except poor prep on food"
Cons: "As above"
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."
Pros: "Despite the boarding process, the on-flight crew was nice. The seats were comfortable. Also, I like the in-plane sockets and entertainment screens."
Cons: "When preparing to board, the two clerks at the gate were very rude. I had a carry-on suitcase, a laptop bag, and a small camera bag. They wouldn't let me board, claiming that my camera bag was a third item that I couldn't have. They then tried to force me to check the suitcase which i explained that I did not want to do, before giving me the chance to place the camera bag in the suitcase (which it fit just fine). They were not understanding or friendly and really made me question my decision of flying with American Airlines."
Pros: "Great crew with an attention to details!"
Cons: "40 min late and a bumpy ride the whole time but good flight"
Pros: "Quick and easy boarding"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "Everything ran smoothly despite turbulence and bad weather, thanks to the crew."
Cons: "Seating is even more cramped than I'm used to, and everything outside of a drink and a biscuit is extra money."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "There was nothing too bad other than I wasn't able to check in online bc our first leg of the flight was operated by American Airlines. But there wasn't anything that really stood out that would make me want to fly them again other than it was the best price."
Pros: "The crew was very helpful at each stop even though they weren't responsible for the disasters."
Cons: "Initially we thought we were flying with British Airways. We then had to do some digging to realize it was all out of American Airlines. Then we couldn't get proper boarding passes and luggage tags until one of the crew members spent a significant amount of time untangling each leg of our trip so they were in the proper order. We got delayed by 4 hours in Chicago and missed our connection in Manchester. We had another 5 hour wait there. By the time we got to Dublin, our bags didn't also arrive. After almost 24 hours of travel, we arrived but without all of our stuff."
Pros: "Easy flight, friendly crew."
Cons: "Girl next to me being sick the whole time"

The check-in process couldn't have been worse. Besides they have no customer service to speak of, I wasn't able to purchase a 2nd checked bag prior to the trip, the app just wouldn't let me no matter what. I spent over an hour on hold waiting for a rep who wasn't able to help me. At the airport we politely asked the rep to help since we were unable. She flatly refused to do anything. When we asked to speak to a supervisor she said she was one of the most senior people there and if "We're still not happy she can give me a number to call where I can wait on hold for over 2 hours to be told the same thing I'm telling you now." Absolutely atrocious. First and definitely LAST time flying Allegiant.

You canceled my vacation. Why are you sending this to me? It is tone deaf and counterproductive to your purpose.

Pros: "Flight was great overall."
Cons: "Timelines was very poor. 2 hour delay because we don’t have a crew is terrible!"
Cons: "Website is still slow to update trip delays, not a problem today though!"
Cons: "Seemed understaffed at the airport, never anyone around to answer questions about why our plane wasn't even there until 20 minutes after we were supposed to have boarded. They finally showed up, but didn't mention that we'd be delayed (which I eventually found out thanks to a KAYAK alert). Kept telling us the flight would be 62 minutes, but it ended up taking forever. Probably not Allegiant's fault, but they acted like they wanted to hide the fact, rather than own up to it and apologize for the inconvenience as if they valued all of us as passengers."
Pros: "The crew was amazing, super helpful, very friendly and understanding when it came to social distancing."
Cons: "The seats are not the most comfortable, but the price is right."
Cons: "Absolutely GREAT!!!"
Pros: "direct flight"
Cons: "airport hassles"
Cons: "I love the changes that have taken place. I last flew with them 5 years ago and vowed too never fly with them again. Times have changed and they are a great Airline!!!"
Cons: "The seats were the most uncomfortable seats I've ever dealt with on a flight."
Cons: "Alligient air is an excellent economy airline that flies non-stop to smaller cities."
Pros: "Cost"
Cons: "OMG, miffed and aggravated right now!! Currently on Allegiant Flight 1355. PIE to CVG A non-eating flight. These POSs MFers decide to have a friggen pizza party in the middle of the flight"
Pros: "Everything was simple and it was cool that they let the staff wear comfy clothes"
Cons: "Usb chargers in the seat, and free refreshments and peanuts"
Pros: "Half empty and on time"
Pros: "Inexpensive and efficient"
Pros: "Crew was friendly, boarding process was easy, spacious aisles"
Cons: "The seats do not recline and are not very comfortable. Drinks and snacks are not complimentary"
Pros: "I didn’t enjoy anything about this flight unfortunately it was my worst experience with an airline that I’ve ever had."
Cons: "I had checked my bag with was a personal bag and they said it fit inside the metal stand they had so when I proceeded to board another lady had told me I’d pay $50 or wouldn’t get on. She was very rude she let me friend with two bags go on without paying. I took four flights and never had this issue"
Pros: "The actual flight was comfortable and the crew was good."
Cons: "Flight time was pushed back a few weeks ago. Slow boarding process so we landed about 30 min late."
Cons: "No hot coffee on 7:40am flight. Not right."
Pros: "The plane, the crew..."
Cons: "Seats wider"
Pros: "The price of the ticket"
Cons: "Maybe to add WiFi"
Pros: "Smooth timely flight without incident."
Cons: "As retired military we were to have assigned seats since we purchased our tickets but somehow our return tickets separated us by 2 rows & opposite sides of plane. We were supposed to be in an isle seat & a window seat in the same side & row. We do appreciate all Allegiant Air does for the military. Wish all airlines did what they do."
Pros: "Price and direct flights to popular destinations."
Cons: "No frills. Charging $5 for a printed boarding pass seems a bit excessive"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Being stranded for 6 hours in the airport for no weather reason, with no compensation."
Pros: "Yes"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly, very polite unlike the United flights I have taken. I was told the space would be uncomfortable but it was absolutely fine for the short flight."
Cons: "No beverage service. Not even water is offered."
Cons: "5 delays between for a 4:27PM flight that eventually took off at 3:15am. My biggest issue is the unrealistic delay that could have left us in the airport for 11+ hours. Very thankful that they did allow me to change departure locations to another airport at no charge. That flight went well, even arrived early."
Pros: "Easy boarding, very nice crew. I would definitely recommend spending the extra for Priority, it is much faster."
Pros: "Cheap fare, nice crew, clean plane"
Cons: "Small seating, small snacks , extra charges for anything"
Pros: "Everything the service for breakfast , the interpretation for more information about when you’re in a plane what to do in case something happened and stuff"
Cons: "They didn’t have a WiFi on for the plan I couldn’t use my phone at all"
Pros: "No Delays All went smooth & arrived early!"
Pros: "Keep the free snacks and drinks, NA or soda, I really just miss the legroom (nearly 6’ tall) and cushions, a chair that can ease back a bit. All airlines do this but you are worse than frontier, the major carriers have skimped but not like this."
Cons: "3 hour torture chamber. When she said it was their goal to make us comfortable, but more importantly to keep us safe I snorted laughter. It was a bit better and a lot shorter than the dark passage"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed 4-5 times before it was cancelled all together and rescheduled for the following day. I lost over $200 in hotel charges and valuable time with family. A 3 day trip was decreased to a 2 day trip. Extremely disappointed. After sharing our experience with others we heard the same thing happened them."
Pros: "Flights were all on time"
Pros: "They offered a direct flight from Cincinnati to Austin. The price was good, even though they charge for carry on."
Cons: "They land at the Austin airport, kind of. Once we landed they took us to a Remote terminal which required waiting for a bus to fill up and then take you back to the actual airport. There was no quick way for the bus to return and it has to drive for 15 to 20 minutes to get to the main airport. I took 1 complete hour from when I landed to when I got in my car in lot D."
Pros: "The flight itself was great. The Flight Attendants were pleasant and the ride was smooth."
Cons: "I didn't take too kindly to the Service Agents on the ground. The Service Agent in San Antonio wasn't very accommodating or supportive to my needs. I had a problem that needed resolved and instead of diligently helping me, she would turn to another customer, totally ignore my concerns and speak Spanish with this other woman. When I was at the counter first, not the other woman. The Service Agent in Orland on my way back was rude as well. She gave my Mom and I attitude about my luggage being overweight. Told us to pay the $50 or figure it out. We had expressed already paying the $18 to check the luggage to begin with and wanted to see if that amount could be included in the $50. The Service Agent scoffed at us and turned up her nose. Great air service, horrible ground service."
Pros: "It's convenient and inexpensive for one of my regular destinations. Though, over the years, I've experienced a few cranky employees at the Punta Gorda location. Just the opposite in Asheville, where friendly was apparently invented."
Pros: "Their flights are always delayed. They have some pretty old flights and they always get broke before the take off and they have to do some maintenance before take off. Not going to fly again with them."
Cons: "Entire flight experience."
Pros: "didn't like anything"
Cons: "delays"
Pros: "Flight itself was low in cost. Also, crew member on departure from Fwb was a real sweetheart. E-boarding pass was nice."
Cons: "They charged for everything! Seats, luggage and small snacks. Good thing you can bring your own."
Cons: "Delayed 5 hours!"
Cons: "My return flight was rescheduled for a day later."
Pros: "Flight attendant Lisa was great."
Pros: "Setas were good. Good price and good boarding system"
Cons: "Aircraft cabin was a bit dirty"
Pros: "It's like taking the public bus during rush hour. Organized chaos. But I guess you literally get what you pay for so, yeah. The crew was awesome though. No qualms there."
Cons: "Disorganized boarding. Even the extra room seats are cramped. Bathrooms are a step up from a porta potty. DO NOT SIT NEAR THEM unless you plan on holding your breath the while flight."
Pros: "It's a cheap direct flight. Seats don't recline, so if you're tall, you won't have anyone leaning into your knees."
Cons: "The seats are really packed in, and people kept slamming into my elbow as they walked down the aisle. De-planing was a bit chaotic, I don't think many of these people fly regularly, and were having some serious heebie-jeebies at their bags being in an overhead compartment not immediately above their head. So before anyone was mobile or doors were open, there were large pieces of luggage being passed around through really crowded spaces. Chill, people. The baggage carousel at the new terminal was poorly designed, shutting down when people went to pick up their bags. It took awhile to get our bags, and we were scolded by the staff for tripping some sensor. I don't know what universe y'all live in, but in this one, you have to move close to the carousel to lift your bag. So the sensor tripped like three times and people were unhappy."
Pros: "Staff was wonderful!!"
Pros: "Very affordable."
Cons: "Seats are too close"
Pros: "Quick flight."
Cons: "You have to pay extra for everything."
Cons: "The LA to Eugene leg was delayed in departing, but this was an improvement on the cancelled flight from Eugene to LA. Arrived at the airport 2 hours early per their instructions to find the flight was delayed. Thirty minutes later they cancelled the flight and then provided no information concerning the new flight the following day."
Pros: "Uncomfortable seats, decent leg room, no seat tray was a huge issue"
Cons: "We backed up then went back to the gate twice for a same problem that was then announced as just a signal malfunction. This was on top of a 2+ hour delay."
Pros: "There was nothing special. It was just a two hour airplane ride."
Cons: "The consistency of communication. I received a text informing me my flight was delayed 30 minutes. A little later I received another text informing me the flight was delayed another 30 minutes. Then I received an email saying the flight was on time- no text back.Emails are not as obvious as a text"
Pros: "It boarded quickly, I guess"
Cons: "Seriously pretty much everything"
Pros: "when at O'Hare, it was not a very long taxi to get to the gate"
Cons: "flight was delayed an hour; I felt very cramped in that small space for my seat"
Cons: "Never left on time always late"
Pros: "Always liked frontier."
Cons: "Wait was a longer than expected."
Pros: "They left me alone."
Cons: "Fold down tables are tiny"
Pros: "Friendliness and being professional"
Cons: "The flight was delayed with no warning at the time of boarding and then 5 people had to offer to switch flights. When I did I was promised a seat on an early flight but by the time I reached customer service they didn't have a seat for me and I was bumped again to a much later flight causing me to miss work."
Cons: "Flight delayed twice for a total of 5 hours and never once received a text or email about either delay nor was I contacted for food vouchers I just happened to go up to the desk and they gave it to me."
Cons: "Air traffic control issues kept us from leaving on time. They did a good job of catching us back up, and even though we were late, they made up time. I like the design of the plane where the seats are thinner and there is more leg room. I had quit flying Frontier because of the measuring of the carry ons, feeling like cattle being herded, etc. This was a better experience, with the exception of the carry on expense. With that and charging for every little thing, your prices are not any cheaper than any other airline."
Cons: "Some passangers were not charges for carry on bags but I was charged $45 for a small carry on bag."
Pros: "arrived 20 minutes early, took off on time"
Cons: "We had to wait an hour for our baggage from when the plane started de-boarding"
Cons: "Took over 30 minutes to get my checked bag."
Pros: "I like the crew and how clean the plane was."
Cons: "The flight was delayed which I wasn't alerted about and the gate was also switched gates without alerting us."
Pros: "I liked absolutely nothing about Frontier airlines. If there was a 0 star option, that's what I'd rate it. From the moment I got to the kiosk to check in and the screen said that I hadn't paid for my checked and carry on bag even though I had the night previous, to the atrocious customer service at the counter where the desk agent kept demanding that I put my bag on the scale even though another passenger's bag was in the way and she was doing nothing to move it, to me the 2 hour delay departing from a Denver, an additional hour waiting on the tarmac in Chicago with the flight attendants being snarky with passengers who were becoming restless and wanting to retrieve personal items-- it suffices to say that I will NEVER fly this airline again. It took an additional 45 minutes to retrieve checked baggage. I was fooled by the seemingly reasonable fair. I would prefer to pay double what I payed for this flight simply to never have to experience atrociously uncomfortable seats and extremely rude flight attendants (I asked for a second glass of water, to which she responded "I must service the other customers first" and I understood that, but once beverage service was over, she spent an hour talking to and laughing with the other flight attendants and then 30 mins before landing strolled over with an additional glass of water for me. NEVER AGAIN!"
Cons: "This was one of the worst flights I've ever taken with perhaps the most apathetic crew I've ever encountered. My departure flight was delayed endlessly–including a 2 hour wait on the tarmac for a gate at my destination. The crew provided almost no information or updates. And the lack of legroom was unhealthy. Also, I was not informed during booking that I'd be charged for a carry-on. That added $70 to my ticket plus seat selection charges."
Cons: "Only airline in the airport with delays from a snow storm 3 days ago!! About 7 hours in the airport with multiple delays before it was canceled. No other flights available for a week. Refunds available (supposedly) but had to wait in lines over 10hours long or through their phone service with significant waits before being routed to their website which was pointless. Some people were waiting over 10 hours to pick up their checked bags from previously canceled flights. Hundreds of flights were canceled the day before as well. Again, this was the only airline in the airport with these issues. Other flights were leaving without problem. I will never fly frontier again."
Pros: "I enjoyed that I had an aisle seat when I chose a random seat instead of paying for one. The crew seemed nice, a little overwhelmed but I had limited interactions with them. Boarding was fine and I was relatively comfortable on the plane."
Cons: "I did not like that Frontier allowed for multiple people on the plane to yell and scream about the flight being delayed and how terrible their service was using lewd, degrading language that I felt unconfortable listening to after spending 6+ hours traveling before I even got on the plane! As a holiday traveler I am aware that there are delays and things are congested, maybe I'm the only one. I did not enjoy that I had to be subjected to that while sitting on an airplane that landed 45 minutes before even reaching gate. This continued on to the baggage claim section for another 45 minutes until finally I told the guys to shut up! The 2 men should have had security called on them or taken to another room to air their grievances instead of subjecting the rest of us to their tirade. I was extremely uncomfortable and disappointed in the way Frontier airlines at O'Hare handles disgruntled passengers and will most likely not fly Frontier again despite having a relatively enjoyable flight."
Pros: "Flight arrived on time"
Cons: "Boarding was disorganized, customer support seemed very unknowledgable at the check in counter, very disappointing overall"
Pros: "The price was good."
Cons: "The crew made a long, loud announcement about a dumb credit card offer which woke up my baby. Would prefer they minimize the number of unnecessary announcements on board the plane. None of the seats recline. There is a bar which prevents you from pushing your small bag or purse underneath the seat in front of you."
Cons: "Really disappointed to pay an extra $40 each way for a carry on and and extra $13 each way to select a seat when I pre-printed my boarding pass. Will stay away from Frontier. The low-cost ticket turned out to be more expense than other airlines."
Pros: "The flight was good and staff were good as well."
Cons: "I get its budget airline, but god I have to pay $2 for an orange juice or water. I'll just remember to not be thirsty."
Pros: "The planes were clean and well-maintained. Boarding was fast and easy and the crew was polite and professional."
Cons: "Seats were a new design to save space. Not as comfortable and no recline. The tray was very small, about the size of a paperback book. Not conducive for drinks or much of anything. Additionally baggage fees were disappointing. $25 for a checked bag and $30 for a carry-on bag."
Pros: "I liked the price of the flight from Chicago. I liked the ease of booking, checking in and the APP. The crew was very helpful and welcoming. I liked the location of the gates at O'Hare and Denver."
Cons: "I don't like paying for a carry on or a seat (I opted to get assigned whatever and checked my bag). I don't like that the seats don't recline at all and that the food/beverage is all extra and credit only."
Pros: "The crew was great. Checking in our bags was quick. Boarding the plane was also quick."
Cons: "The plane was new and clean, but the seats were not very comfortable. Also there were no options for in-flight entertainment."
Pros: "The airline crew was fine. The flight itself was fine."
Cons: "During an extended delay, Frontier airport staff neglected to communicate with the planeful (approx 200) passengers waiting to board our flight from Denver to Chicago. Although the flight time was changed several times, no accurate information was given to the waiting passengers. We were only told we did not have a crew, and if a crew was not found, the flight would be cancelled. The Frontier staff did not seem to care whatsoever about the effect of the extended delay on the passengers, or the very possible cancellation of the flight. In the end, the flight boarded about 2 1/2 hours late, and arrived 3 hours after its initial scheduled arrival time."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Gate was changed numerous times. Flight attendant was rude about baggage saying it doesn't fit in the overhead bin and told me to get up out of my window seat faster as if I could control the pace of the two people sitting next to me. She didn't even try to help make the luggage fit. All I did was push it in an inch further and it closed. Very unprofessional and rude. We sat on the plane for over an hour after take off time because they lost the luggage. I only flew with frontier because I thought the flight was going to be cheaper. Adding the price of a seat both ways and a bag both ways made it more expensive than a flight without all that extra stress and work and definitely without all these problems. Will not be flying with frontier ever again."
Cons: "Flight was delayed an hour at take off from Denver because ground crew was there yet to load luggage"
Pros: "They charged $2.50 for a beverage when they are free on every other airline. They nickel and dime you every step of the way as seen in the carry on bag fees. The crew on the plane was great, but the gate agents had a lot of attitude. You can also expect your flight to be delayed and yih will also wait at least an hour at baggage claim waiting for your bag to come. i will not be flying frontier again."
Cons: "They charged $2.50 for a beverage when they are free on every other airline. They nickel and dime you every step of the way as seen in the carry on bag fees. The crew on the plane was great, but the gate agents had a lot of attitude. You can also expect your flight to be delayed and yih will also wait at least an hour at baggage claim waiting for your bag to come. i will not be flying frontier again."
Pros: "The pilot offered a smooth take off and landing."
Cons: "However the Support staff stemming from the entry desk to the flight attendants were rude and unfriendly. The seats were small and were not meant for larger individual of which I was seated beside. In addition, what was thought to be an inexpensive flight was corrected as the $60 fee for a carry on bag charge was astonishing. I would not recommend frontier as a flying option."
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "All the extra fees."
Pros: "The staff"
Cons: "A low advertised fare, and after all the extra fees, I could have booked another airline at a competitive price. The luggage carousel at Chicago was not clearly marked, and there was no display board to tell you which carousel the luggage was comin out on"
Cons: "I got a message that flight was delayed 2h but actually it was 40 min. We almost missed our flight."
Pros: "Low cost no nonsense way of getting from Denver to Chicago, departing at a convenient hour."
Cons: "The $45 charge for a carry on bag is deceptive. Factor that in with the low fare and guess what, it's no longer the lowest fare option."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 3 hours.....AFTER we boarded. And the seats were uncomfortable and there was no more TV's. I love you guys but come on..."
Cons: "they give you one of the lowest fares around, then they Charge you extra for carry on bag, extra cost for checked baggage, and they do not participate in the TSA Pre check or Global Entry programs. so over all, Also, the redesigned seats are very minimalistic and uncomfortable, and the tray tables are half the normal size. i would have been better off taking a more expensive flight that included all these things . overall cost would have only been about 20 dollars more, and baggage would have been free, and i would have been able to use my Pre Check status and avoided the long Security lines. and to add insult to injury , flights both ways were delayed by at least 45 minutes each"
Cons: "Flight 33 minutes late leaving. Did not realize Frontier now charges for everything. My mistake but realized I could have flown on American for same price after all extras added to ticket by Frontiet. Not likely to ever fly on Frontier again."
Pros: "Nothing!!!"
Cons: "Ticket price doesn't include a seat!!!! Seats cost from $10-35. $65 to carry on my back pack as I add a purse, too. Uncomfortable seats.. No complimentary water.. Plain water.. $1.99. By the time I paid for checked bag, $35, my plans ride cost more than Southwedt ticket!!! Had to sit on runway for 1 hr as we had to wait for other plane to leave gate.. I'm a seasoned business traveler, so big new to done if these things.. Bug I'd rent a car and drive before I'd fly Frontier again.,"
Cons: "Our flight was scheduled to leave at 4:15, their was another flight at the same gate scheduled to leave at 3:45. It was unsurprisingly not enough time to board the flight before. While in that extra time of waiting for our plane to come to the gate after the flight before took off a hail storm hit. Had we been on time we would have avoided the storm. We also taxied in Chicago for over 20 minutes waiting for our gate. I ended up missing two of my buses to my final destination which was very frustrating."
Pros: "Cheap fare"
Cons: "Flight 2 hours late"
Pros: "The people who work in the airport are so helpful and the people on the flight were so friendly. It is always a pleasure to fly Frontier."
Pros: "When I was checking in online, I panicked initially about the extra costs for picking a seat and your luggage. Then my boyfriend showed me you can just evade it by clicking "next." Frontier allows you to carry on a "personal bag" for free and I was surprisingly able to bring a relatively big suitcase on board with no problems or questions asked. Also, checking in on website makes it seem like you'll be split up into random seats if you don't buy a seat but the boarding passes we printed at the airport were good seats next to each other. It's too bad that you have to pay for drinks, but I was able to get a cup of water for free and I understand that on cheap flights like this you can't expect to have free sodas."
Pros: "Flight boarded early, left early, landed early. I slept the whole time. It was perfect. The flight from Chicago to Denver was a different story...."
Pros: "Not much..liked on this airline."
Cons: "Pay extra for seat Resv, coffee/soda, carry on bag, check bag(cheaper than carry on), and the seats are like sitting on boards. Never again, I'll pay the extra for United or even Soutwest."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "It all started when I asked this flight attendant if he could remove this piece of gum from the seat back in front of me. He snapped at me and told me he was busy and he would do something about it once we were airborne. He then proceeded to laugh and yuk it up with another flight attendant for 5 minutes. So I rang the call button again thinking maybe another flight attendant might come check on me nope same guy. He walked up to me like it was our first interaction and said "is there something I can help you with?" I politely asked him again to remove the piece of gum from the seat. That's when it got crazy he started yelling at me saying if I wanted he would get the gate attendant and have me taken off the plane!! That's when another passenger got up and told the flight attendant to do his job and that he was acting way out of line. He huffed off and still refused to remove the disgusting and very unsanitary piece of gum from the seat back. By this time another flight attendant came running from the back of the plan asking what was wrong? When I told her she was overly apologetic and took care of it immediately. That flight attendant should be fired as he is dangerous and his attitude towards paying customers was disgusting!! Well the last thing I will say is now I know why I fly southwest."
Cons: "I arrived at the airport 2 and 1/2 hours early for my flight... When I get there the line to just check a bag is swirling around the airport. I was disappointed I'd have to wait in said line but I went to the end to start the process of getting it done. About 30 mins into this line one of your employees starts calling off flights ones I'm assuming wee leaving soon so those people got to cut to the front of the line. A respectable thing but also very frustrating for the people actually waiting in line because it stopped movement completely. After they get those people out the line starts moving again but the one person controlling the line leaves and the people in the back feel untitled to bumrush forward and open up one of the crowd control polls and get to the front at which point everyone else is stuck to wait for the back of the line to go first. No one stopped them just let them go right ahead and make me wait. So at this point I've been at the airport for about an 1 hour and 15 mins. Not even through the line. As I approach the front finally an employee comes out and closes the crowd control line that made it possible for everyone to cut when I pointed that out they gave me excuses and were very rude. My flight was boarding in the next 45 mins and closing gates in the next hour or so. Next they start calling flights again ones that need to get through because they won't make their flight if they won't. My flight home is one of those. I'm at the front of the line so I figured I'd just be allowed to check my bag and get going but instead she lets people that I watched walk in less then 15 minutes ago go in front of me. I was furious I had been waiting 1 and 1/2 hours and people who showed up 15 mins ago are probably going to make MY flight while I wont.. I point this out to the lady and she says I'm just trying to get everyone to their flights and I do appreciate that but they were going about it all wrong. I finally checked my bag with probably 40 mins to spare before doors open to board and 1 hour before doors close. I turn the corner to look at security and feel defeat because I know there's no way I'll realistically make it through I turn around to talk to a supervisor about what she can do.. Get me on another flight? At least tell me they will work on their tactics of the bag check line. But instead the supervisor tells me that I have to try to get through security and that its my problem and they will deal with me at the gate if I don't make it. I hurry into line at security and we are not moving. All of a sudden the security line starts picking up because they brought the dogs out. I get through security with about 3 mins to spare I start running I get to my gate on the dot of gate close and the only reason I made it is because of delays due to maintenance which I had asked to reseive updates on my flight that wasn't given to me."
Pros: "TSA Lines in Denver crazy long,thought I would miss boarding,anxiety provoking"
Cons: "Hidden prices. Carry on bags-not told they cost $40 dollars extra. Not told until you book and paid for a flight that you really haven't gotten a seat until you pay more money. The seats are tight and uncomfortable with not much leg room. My family members are all tall and the seats are not designed to lean back or adjust in any way to our bodies. This airline does not nickel and dime you to death they go for $13 to $45 dollars for everything. Sneaky way to expand the cost of the flight."
Pros: "Paying $35 to “upgrade” to basically any other airlines regular seating"
Cons: "Literally everything."
Pros: "The people were friendly and you can't beat the price."
Cons: "The trip out was late, but that was because of weather, so no biggie. But on the return trip, we sat on the tarmac for over an hour because of "boarding gate problems". There was a loud beeping noise for the entire hour we waited and only one announcement was made to explain the situation. At some point we were finally allowed to exit the plane onto the runway (not the boarding platform)."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "My flight was delayed 7 hours. I never recieved an e-mail letting me know of this even though I gave my email when I bought the tickets so that I would get updates on the flight. I checked the flight status before leaving my house at 2am and the flight was still on time. After driving 2 hours to the airport and going through security I found out that my flight was being delayed 7 hours and no representative was even at the gate to speak with. All I was given was one $14 meal voucher which didn’t even cover a full meal at the airport. It’s told that the issue was mechanical but I later found out that te first flight had been over booked and the 1pm flight didn’t have enough people on it so they made everyone on at 6am flight wait until 1pm to fly out. Once on the plane, the seats were hard and uncomfortable and the plane was cold. I am extremely disasiflied and will never use Spirit again."
Cons: "Very crowded airplane, no room for legs and I'm short, chairs do not recline, expensive to check in bags and they lost my friend's luggage without any proper explanation."
Pros: "The flight was on time and the flight crew were very pleasant and helpful."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Once you add in the cost for bags, water, a seat assignment, etc., you've paid just as much as you would on any other airline, BUT you're still stuck with ridiculously tiny, cramped, uncomfortable seats that don't recline, are too narrow, and too close together. Spirit tries to make you believe they are a low cost option, but it's actually a rip off. I should receive 50% of my fare returned to me for the 50% of my seat that was unavailable for me to use because the guy next to me took up his seat plus half of mine. This is because Spirit had its planes designed with more seats crammed in to a small space than the other airlines have. They claim this is what allows them to offer lower fares, but now I have to see a chiropractor because of the twisted position I had to sit in for 4 hours."
Pros: "The flight was the cheapest we could find."
Cons: "Spirit doesn't seem to know how to do anything on time. They charge you an arm and a leg for even a carry on. Not worth the mediocre crew, uncomfortable seats, and long wait times. Every time I fly Spirit I say it will be my last, but this time I really mean it."
Pros: "You are definitely not inexpensive. I will do everything in my power to not use your service again. Your luggage policy is abominable. No thank you!!!!"
Cons: "They canceled my flight and did not have another one until the next day. I booked with American and had a great flight."
Pros: "I have absolutely nothing positive to say about spirit airlines or their employees."
Cons: "I got to the airport early so I could arrive to my girlfriends graduation in time. When I got there, I was bluntly told that my flight had been canceled because the whole spirit crew didn't show up. I was then told that they could send me the next day which would have been 28 hours later which I clearly explained to them that I would miss my once in a lifetime opportunity and they werent willing to help. They brushed me off and treated me like I was bothering them by trying to figure out my own flight. I have had bad experiences with spirit before but never have I before heard of any such terrible experience let alone living through it. I dont ever plan on using them again. Terrible company with matching god awful service and representation."
Pros: "I didn't like anything. My flight was first delayed then cancelled."
Cons: "They always have issues with delayed and cancelled flights. I got a voucher to use toward the next flight but I can't trust their flight to be on time or not cancelled."
Pros: "Their employees were pleasant enough"
Cons: "My return flight got cancelled and over 24 hours later I still haven't been able to even speak to their customer service to get a refund. I ended up purchasing another ticket on Southwest because I had to get home and Spirit didn't have any flights until about 24 hours later. The cheapest crummiest airline out there. You have to pay to check in at the airport. You have to pay for carry on luggage. You have to pay for everything. The flight was uncomfortable and they won't even give you water. Literally everything is an extra charge, and there are about 10 pop up screens trying to get you to purchase extra stuff every time you try to navigate their website. I won't be flying them again."
Pros: "Service was fine."
Cons: "I didn't know about the baggage charge. I probably won't fly Spirit anymore. I paid more for my bags than my ticket. Let Kayak know your baggage rules so they can advertise this with the fares."
Pros: "I picked my seat beforehand and it was a big, comfy seat. Flight was on time and smooth. Nice crew members"
Cons: "I dislike that you can't even get water without paying for it. Offer a little something!"
Cons: "During a difficult weather situation, Spirit was absolutely useless and left us stranded for a week. With storms on the East Coast, Spirit cancelled flights two days in a row (as did all other airlines). However, with Spirit, the website was useless for rebooking ourselves, and there were so few representatives at the airport and to reach a rep on the phone that we waited several hours just to be able to rebook at the airport. In the end, Spirit could not get us on another flight out for 7 more days. Causing extreme additional expense to me and my travel partner. I will never risk flying Spirit again."
Cons: "The people at the counter were not helpful at all. On my way there and back my Global Entry number did not show up on my boarding pass. The response from the person helping me was basically, "oh well" with no attempt at finding another solution. The planes are horribly uncomfortable and they charge you for basic things at every turn. I will avoid using them from this point forward and will tell anyone I know to avoid them as well."
Cons: "My flight was 2 hours late to take off and we ended up in Detroit instead of Chicago. Passengers said they got $50 back but I never did."
Pros: "Friendly employees"
Cons: "Spirit canceled our flight and their only solution was refund or wait 3 days until they could get us home. Had to spend thousands to rebook to get us home the next day on another again. Never again."
Cons: "Flight cancelled because of nonexistent weather (such a lie) at destination city, meanwhile 5 other airlines were boarding and flying to that city. They do not rebook flights for you when canceled or help in any way. How the airline handled this was awful. Poor poor poor customer service. Ending up costing me double cost to rebook myself on another airline day of. Will never fly again. At least I had full capability to juggle baggage that they took off plane, deal with ticket counter agent, call company on my cell phone, and rebook through phone with another airline. This company left a very elderly woman in a wheelchair on my same canceled flight with no options other than to rebook her a flight TWO days later then leave her stranded at airport...offered her no other help or options. Just despicable"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "My flight was cancelled and they did not provide an option to rebook another flight until two days after the scheduled departure date. They also did not provide any reimbursement for the hotel I needed to stay at or the additional flight I needed to book. Zero empathy and zero help. Never flying Spirit again."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Had to purchase another ticket home because kayak"
Pros: "300lb plus man sitting in middle seat, I was on the isle and had to put feet and most of body in isle. Attendant kept getting on to me about being in isle, and even when I fell asleep, insisted on running in to my head and over my fear. Then laughed about it when I said somethin."
Cons: "way overcharged on baggage. 2 bags for a round trip - $200 Flight-round trip - $141 my last time w/ spirit !"
Pros: "Cheap ticket"
Cons: "Cramped seats and having to pay for everything"
Cons: "$9 Fare Club. Still trying to figure out what it means???"
Pros: "Spirit is the worst airline I have come across in my life. They cancelled our connecting flight and refused to refund the entire fare, as well as apologizing to us that there were no more flights available and there was no other flight they could put us on. This airline is actually no cheaper than any others when you add the enormous amount of hidden fees and charges, and you'd better like low quality in everything you do if you fly spirit. Thank god American Airlines had a flight at the same time and we were able to make it home in time for work the following morning, but to say that spirit is a garbage airline is a colossal insult to the hardworking men and women in the waste management industry. The CEO of spirit should resign in disgrace. Also they charge for water. Good luck dying if you're prone to dehydration. --Ratchan"
Cons: "I booked one ticket from Denver to Baltimore, but found out I would be charged twice ($80 in total) for checking one bag. While i did have a layover in Chicago and this indeed was only one trip, Spirit denied this and said that since I had a layover, they were two separate tickets. This is unacceptable. My ticket said Chicago was a layover. It is absurd to be charged twice for baggage on one single trip. Last time I fly Spirit!!!"
Pros: "I like the colors and the staff"
Cons: "Just about everything else"
Pros: "Landing and taking off perfect."
Cons: "That I have to pay for everything on the plane ride (water). I did not like the way some of your stewardess talking to some of the passengers it was the way they said what they said."
Cons: "I would have thought that even a glass of water or coffee wouldn't have added too much cost on a 2 hour flight. Just 1 basic beverage would have been huge."
Cons: "Prices for carry on and checked baggage add up. So called cheap price for tickets are not cheap when you add up baggage fees."
Pros: "Cheap"
Cons: "We were delayed over an hour, with no support at the gate to explain why or let us know when we would be leaving. Incredibly frustrating, as I booked this flight (instead of another airline) for the departure time. Would have rather used another airline.."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Cramped seating."
Pros: "I chose Spirit's flights from a listing on Kayak. The flight APPEARED to be less expensive than others listed."
Cons: "I was furious to discover large additional charges after my nonrefundable fare was purchased. Having to pay an additional charge for a basic seat was an insult. Why wouldn't a basic seat be included in the ticket price? The ticket can't be used without one! Having flown on another airline a very few months ago with no charge for a carryon bag, HavING to not only pay for a single carryon, but pay more than the cost of checking the bag was infuriating. Findng additional charges for even a small soft drink during the flight simply added to the offensive sales practices. Having duly paid these fees, the extremely tight spacing of the seats allowed for absolutely no movement during the flight. Immovabe seat backs and cheap hard molded plastic seats did nothing to alleviate the feeling of disregard for customers. During and after the flight, I heard a steady stream of customers saying that they would never fly with this airline again."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Flight was comfortable. Crew was kind."
Cons: "Hidden fees were angering. It is marketed as unbundling, but this isn't advertised until its to late. i was shocked when I checked in online and was required to select a seat and tonpay an additional fee for it. Because other, less expensive seats were taken,I had to pay $50 for a seat on a flight that I already paid for. There was a fee for my bag, regardless if I check or carry on. Everyone has at least one bag! Unless I'm flying to be there for a couple of hours, I need a bag how dare you charge me for a seat and one carry on size bag. These things are standard. Food was very limited and very overpriced for the minuscule items. I had to pay $2.00 for about 10oz of coffee. In the end, Also, none of the seats on the flight recline so forget being comfortable and resting on the flight b In the end I paid more for this flight that I did when I made the same trip in Jet Blue. This "unbundling" is a marketing tactic designed to sooo customers into spending money on additional (some required) fees. I will never fly spirit again."
Pros: "It was fine. I don't like how Spirit charges for take on bags and all snacks."
Cons: "It was overall fine."
Pros: "I eventually got to my destination."
Cons: "Hidden bag fees and delayed fights"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Delays, seating, costs, baggage."
Pros: "Some of the flight attendents were hilarious! It almost (not quite) makes up for their poor service."
Cons: "They cancelled our flight on the way back, which happens a lot I understand. The earlist flight they could give us was more than a week later, and they offered no other solutions. We ended up spending twice as much as we were given back for our cancelled flight in order to get home. Not only were they not helpful in finding this flight (my husband had to run around the airport looking for a flight home) but they also could not confirm the amount that would be refunded when we called back later. They also give you a lot of hidden fees (i.e. $90 for a carryon rountrip)."
Pros: "My flight was canceled indefinitely the night before the flight a) without any heads up and b) due to thunder and lightening, it was the ONLY 6am flight canceled. It's unacceptable to conduct business this way, and to no accomodate as a result. I was left completely screwed over to pay ASTRONOMICAL fees to get home for a family wedding I was in. To rub salt on wounds, Spirit's employees (very tall thin man, young to middle age, on the left far desk) along with one other, were rude, unhelpful, condescending, unprofessional, the list goes on. Spirit just lost a very loyal customer who always stood up for the company name. I expect and deserve better. Guess I'll go to Frontier."

Cons: "No beverages, rough flight with no ac and $45 per carry on bag!"
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Passengers were strung along as the 1:20pm flight was continually delayed. We only found out because the departure time kept changing on the video monitor. Finally when a gate agent showed up to answer questions, he assured us we'd be boarding soon. The next announcement was that the flight was cancelled, and the agent sent all 100+ passengers down a small set of escalators to work with only two agents to get rebooked. It was a dangerous situation as people were running into each other at the bottom of the escalator. I tried calling the customer service line to handle the rebooking and was told they didn't have that capability and I would have to wait in line. I was in line for 3.5 hours before I spoke to someone and got rebooked on a United flight that got me home after 3am the next day. I will never book another flight with Spirit."
Pros: "Spirit generally is one of tge cheapest flights however they make you pay for everything. Luggage is an extra $50 and you get no free food or drink on the plane. This particular flight went very smoothly. We even landed early. I got randomly selected in a window seat which was a blessing. Staff is chill."
Cons: "Expensive."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Everything. Rude staff, terrible."
Cons: "Paying for carry on size bags is lame"
Pros: "The flight was very cost effective."
Cons: "There was a presentation made to all passengers midflight trying to get everyone to sign up for a credit card in return for a "free" flight on the airline, presented as a gift. As a captive audience member, I found this very unprofessional, especially since the airline first proclaimed that all passengers could have a free flight then appended their statement with "as long as you sign up for a Spirit credit line." I also don't like the $10 charge for a printed boarding pass at the airport from Spirit; I understand the concept of modularizing costs, but there is no way the act of printing a pass for a passenger costs the airline remotely close to $10. It is a clear attempt to capitalize on a customer's forgetfullness."
Cons: "Horrible communication. Delayed flights and even canceled my trip before I even got there. Spent 17 hrs traveling from one airport back to the initial one I came from. Didn't have any other flights to offer and still not sure about my refund. Small seats in airplanes and everything costs money. Never will I spend money towards this airline again."
Pros: "Cheap base cost for ticket."
Cons: "Total cost ends up being >>>> Southwest after having a bag or two, whether it's checking in or carrying on. They charge for everything and everything is up charged so much - want a carry on? 55$. want to check it? 50$. realize that you want to carry it on but forgot to pay because you did it online? 100$ It's kind of like the Oprah of airline hidden fees. Start off at $15-20 cheaper than everyone else. Then all of a sudden - you get a bag charge, you get a bag charge, YOU ALL GET A BAG CHARGEEEEE!!"
Pros: "Low initial ticket price but add-on costs for EVERYTHING. Constant selling on board by crew. Can't get through online check-in without a barrage of additional offerings. Not worth the trouble and not any less expensive than other airlines."
Pros: "Got there safe"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 3 hours"
