Pros: "There was great service at the desk when I needed to have my flight rescheduled. Friendly staff in flight as well."
Cons: "Having less than an hour to deplane, go through immigration, them security just isn't enough time between flights. I missed my plane as Guadalajara immigration took almost 2 hours at 5:45am. I then had to add another flight to my itinerary. Planes are somewhat old."

Cons: "No announcements for landing. I usually wouldn't complain about arriving early but my shuttle was not available for two hours so the early arrival added that time to my wait time."

Pros: "Quick flight, ease going through customs"

Pros: "I didn't have a seat and was upgraded to first class, which was AMAZING."

Cons: "Horrible customer service and delayed all our plans"

Cons: "Lack of entertainment"

Pros: "Nothing!!!!"
Cons: "A horrible flight!!! We arrived at 5:04pm then we sat on the tamarac for 40 minutes before they could find a gate for us!!!! What a horrible lack of management!’ Who runs this airport/airline!? At the end they moved us to completly different terminal!!! Had to find a new transportation to the hotel!!! Again, what a horrible display of management skills!!"

Pros: "We made it"
Cons: "We sat on the tarmac for two hours. The flight was cold and miserable and today I’m sick."

Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "No issues"

Cons: "Plane waited on another family to connect to this flight, in turn causing our flight to arrivw in Mexico City an hour later. Baggage was slow staff in airport were aware of us trying to connect. They radiod that we were on our way to gate yet still closed gate doors before we arrived at the gate"

Pros: "Surprise first class!"

Pros: "The amenities (entertainment, in-flight service) were limited."
Cons: "Upon deplaning in Cancun, an attendant asked me if I was staying there. I indicated that I was not, that I had a connection. He clearly knew I was about to be led astray, but he did nothing to prevent it. Maybe there was nothing he COULD do, but if so, why bother to ask?"

Pros: "Boarding went smoothly."
Cons: "Aeromexico was unable to provide the boarding pass for our second flight on the itinerary (operated by Delta) when we checked in in Mexico City (our checked bags were tagged all the way to Minneapolis though). They informed us that we would need to go to the Delta ticket counter when we arrived in Cancun (with a short layover). This is an unacceptable level of service."

Pros: "I try to fly on the best airlines due to the service, however the service has gone down"
Cons: "The poor service provided to customers when a flight gets delayed, there was no explanation, no gate, we were walking around the airport without any information and the food voucher barely cover a meal."

Cons: "I had to document my luggage in every airport"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Got to the airport 2 hours before my flight to fly domestically. Waited 1.5 hours in line. Everyone who worked there didn't give a damn about anyone's situation. This isn't the first time the experience was miserable. I recommend viva or volaris. This airline can't get it together."

Pros: "It was ok from mexico city to cancun"
Cons: "All the bad experience in mexico city only"

Pros: "Nice plane"
Cons: "Delay, gate change, reissue of boarding pass. It was confusing. Mostly airport issues, not Aeromexico."

Cons: "The heater on the plane were to high"

Pros: "The crew on this flight was amazing."

Cons: "Death in the family and no one would help me get back home"

Pros: "Movies"
Cons: "Them sending us an email two and a half months after we made the reservation to change the outgoing flight causing us to have a six hour leftover."

Pros: "Seats had the television screen in the seats instead of the monitors that come down from the ceiling. Everyone could choose what they wanted to watch. Good selection of movies and television shows. Airline stewards were nice."
Cons: "All three of our flights were delayed. It was stressful trying to get to new gates and not sure if we would make our flights or not. No explanation why there was delays. However, this worked out to our advantage or we would have missed our flights."

Pros: "Everything - the excellent service continued."
Cons: "That our flight was finished."

Cons: "Almost lost the conection at MEX because I was waiting for my baggage, nobody said anything until 20 minutes the bags for the flight stop coming."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I purchased a first class ticket, but the airline changed Equipment to a plane without a first class cabin. I was unceremoniously bumped back to coach and placed in front of two screaming children who proceeded to yell, kick my seat and hit me in the head for the entire flight. Never fly aeromexico"

Pros: "I liked the fact that the crew was helpful with the limited amount of Spanish I speak."
Cons: "nothing was bad"

Pros: "At least this one is on time."

Pros: "Crew was great. Plane felt good and clean."
Cons: "My flight from Gainesville to Charlotte, we had to deplane down plane steps. I was told we would have jetway every flight. I have had hip replacement and steep steps very uncomfortable. Unable to deplane down them with both purse and small carryon. Someone always has to help me carry my carryon plus theirs as there is no provision for help from the airline. American seems to be only airline to do this, I will have to reconsider flying with you in the future."

Cons: "As always, the crew was friendly, professional and accommodating."

Pros: "Smooth ride"

Cons: "In a perfect world, no 2-hour delay."

Cons: "O prematurely had to check my carry on when there was room to bring it on board with me"

Cons: "I honestly cannot come up with something that I did not lie"

Cons: "The boarding passes I printed out at home could not be scanned at the airport. This also happened last time I flew. There are words printed thru the optical."

Cons: "Airbus seems to have completely minimalized all legroom for persons over 6 feet."

Pros: "Friendly, efficient"

Pros: "Boarding"
Cons: "Wait for Baggage and 20+ mins getting to gate after we landed"

Pros: "The crew and flight was great."

Pros: "Everyone was very helpful."

Cons: "I am million miler in Korean air. It's a seven star airlines"

Pros: "Del"
Cons: "Delayed an hour. Don't think I've had a single American flight on time. No food or movies on international flight. No blankets or pillows."

Pros: "Quickly boarding, crew was extremely polite"
Cons: "No kosher food on board"

Pros: "Sears are comfortable and the entertainment is great as well."
Cons: "Not much to dislike."

Pros: "Comfort"
Cons: "Nothing at all"

Pros: "Top notch airline - staff is personable & comfortable seating"

Pros: ". ."

Pros: "Flight was quick- onboard entertainment (streaming videos to your device) was cool...but the back of the plane is pretty bumpy and there was a lot of turbulance."

Pros: "All flights were on time. American Airlines personal is extremely friendly"

Pros: "Everything was on time"
Cons: "Not enough room between seats"

Cons: "No entertainment. There wasn't even a drop down screen for a movie."

Pros: "Nice entertainment on new 737."
Cons: "But it is a 3-3 and there no room to sit cause we are hip to hip which means shoulders overlap shoulders. It is horrible. Avoid this plane at all costs. It's really bad. Pitch of leg room is barely OK but side to side they have sunk to a new low. The new plane doesn't blow any air. Terrible system. Really? That should be easy to fix."

Pros: "It's pretty rare I can sleep on a plane, but I actually got some rest; very grateful for that."
Cons: "At 6'7", basic coach on a 737 is painful on the knees. I realize I can exit row for an upcharge, but that's kind of messed up, isn't it?"

Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "They lost my luggage and that was horrible but they delivered it to my hotel which was nice."

Pros: "Seats were comfortable, the plane was clean, and all flights left and landed as scheduled. Actually, they landed and unloaded is early! Would recommend if you don't mind paying extra $25 to check a bag."
Cons: "That no checked bags are included in the flight costs. They didn't hide this or surprise me, but just a dislike."

Pros: "Getting bumped to First Class"

Cons: "My first flight was canceled then they took it upon themselves to bump me off the next light and put me on the latest flight where I got there at 11 o'clock at night then on the way home it was delayed again I missed my connecting flight and then he put me on the latest flight again it was a complete nightmare"

Pros: "On time departure and arrival. Plane was clean and seating was not uncomfortable althouth they didn't recline very much. Short flight so it was o.k."

Pros: "The plane was clean, a/c worked well. Stewardesses offered food and drinks several times. Pilot repeatedly came over the intercom with updates on the flight."
Cons: "There was an annoying rattling noize coming from above my seat near the roof and wall."

Pros: "Plane was delayed repeatedly, then cancelled. I missed work and was originally offered a flight for twi days later. That wouldve been three days in an airport ? I had to purchase a room, taxi, and then spend the following day in the airport as that flight was repeatedly delayed. I booked a direct flight and was not rescheduled for such. Still waiting for reply from American Airlines. First time flying with this carrier and disappointed is an understatement."

Pros: "Loved that he was upfront with all of us that it would be a bumpy flight after about 20 minutes, which he was correct and very accurate."
Cons: "I thought his delivery sounded a little more "worrisome" than it needed to be. I thought that he could have expressed the same sentiment, while sounding more confident in his ability and more soothing for folks like me who despise turbulence:)"

Cons: "The crew at the boarding were extremely unpleasant. The all process of the boarding was ridiculous. The crew was disorganized and it felt like they didn't know what to do with the passengers that came from a layover. The all experience was truly insulting, the crew laughed at as for misunderstanding what she said. I sincerely hope no one would go to the same experience we did."

Pros: "I enjoyed the whole experience. The staff was friendly and the plane was clean."
Cons: "Turbulence"

Pros: "It was successful."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The flight overall. Also, it landed early."
Cons: "In Charlotte, they had to deplane on the tarmac and my daughter had a crutch, so she had to sit on the steps to go down them."

Pros: "Timelines"
Cons: "Turbulence, not there fault"

Pros: "Getting off the plane."
Cons: "The flight did not have enough immigration forms for all the guests. The wifi did not work. The seats were uncomfortable and small. The plane emitted a deafening high-pitched whistle for about 10 minutes at a certain altitude. The plane wreaked of nauseating jet fuel as we waiting on the Tarmac. The flight crew at the gate was rude and inattentive."

Cons: "They changed my flight schedule. God my refund, but missed my business trip"

Cons: "Flight was canceled with no option to leave until the next day"

Cons: "Flight was changed without notice did NOT go to Charlotte instead flew Detroit to Dallas! To Tampa- a little out of the way. After we were checked in and ready to board I then got a call to notify me the flight was changed. Boarding was awful made me check small carry on when there was several open over-head compartments and several others were walking in with two + carry ons. How do you explain that? I will NEVER fly American Airlines again. The airplane from Dallas to Tampa was ancient, a little scary to even think it was still in the air. The air conditioning was minimal I could hear other passengers complaining it was extremely uncomfortable."

Pros: "The pilot got us home to Detroit!"
Cons: "Flight delay after flight delay after a terrible experience with Spirit and having to switch to your airline."

Cons: "American has never been reliable, and this time was no exception. 3 hour delay and they put me in a hotel 20mins away. Bobby was helpful though at getting me a new flight, but should have given more in food vouchers"

Pros: "Staff was prompt, pleasant and helpful"
Cons: "Delays due to mechanical issues."

Pros: "Although the flight was delayed, the crew kept a positive attitude and got us into another plane pretty promptly. They let us check in one of our bags for free to make up for the delay."
Cons: "The flight was delayed."

Pros: "Good crew, on time, smooth flight"
Cons: "It was way too hot in the plane. I've been on 100 planes before and never been hit. It smelled like a locker room by the time we landed"

Cons: "We were delayed flying in to Chicago and I was going to miss my connecting flight. There was another Delta flight that could have worked way better for me if American Airlines was willing to accommodate, but they said that I have to fly to Chicago and ask the agent there. Obviously that meant that even that person couldn't do anything. It ended up working out in the end, but I was very annoyed."

Cons: "Wasn't calling by zones, was pretty much a free for all to get on the plane."

Pros: "Great take off and landing. Very comfortable seats."
Cons: "That no snacks or beverages were provided for free"

Pros: "The boarding and deplaning process was very fast. Most likely this is due to the fact that it is less expensive to check a bag than to carry one on, so there were way fewer bags overhead than on a typical flight with another airline."
Cons: "Be prepared to pay if you want to eat or drink. All items are for purchase only. I don't think that my seat reclined at all (and I wasn't near an exit row), so no sleep for me on my almost three hour flight."

Pros: "The crew was very nice and boarded the plane quickly."
Cons: "Basically everything else was awful. The seats were the worst I've ever sat in on an airplane. There was something poking me in the back the entire flight. On an international flight there should be some sort of food options beyond m&m and rice krispy treats.... I ordered one, and they had none left. There wasn't even a magazine for me to look at while on the plane. Really disappointing experience from stem to stern"

Pros: "Cheap flight as long as you don't get sucked into the baggage and seat fees. Friendly crew both ways"
Cons: "3 hour delay on first flight."

Pros: "Plane felt clean. Boarding efficient as was check in."

Pros: "Boarding was fast. The only slightly negative I noticed was the window was very dirty on the inside and the seat back in front of me was too."

Cons: "Flight was cancelled after waiting 2 hrs. Tried to use the 1-800 number they gave. During the 1 hour call, I was initially told I could get to Orlando late, then after multipal waits, I was told nothing was available until the next day late. I tried to cancel the flight and get my money back because it was a long weekend trip. Frontier has you fill out a request and will not give a decision for 7 days. Terrible service."

Pros: "Price was good."
Cons: "Charged for every thing seats, luggage, . Took over an hour for luggage. They waited for the next Frontier flight about half an hour then brought lugage from both flights at the same time. Not enough to get me back to Frontier!"

Cons: "I was told 25 for luggage then 30 got to airport they said 40$ that I didn't pre check which I did, and they said no cash only credit so it cost me another 5 for credit card. I'm very upset over this"

Pros: "I'd never flown frontier until this flight. I was very satisfied, with the exception being the lack of entertainment. I scored low because there wasn't any. That doesn't mean I was unhappy, as it was a three hour flight, and I'm perfectly capable of being screen free for a few hours. There was ample leg room, and the flight attendant staff was not only friendly, but funny and individual. One was even cracking jokes, which I loved. It keeps the stress of traveling off my mind. Additionally, the flight was fairly smooth, free of turbulence, and early arriving. I'll be flying frontier again for sure."
Cons: "The cheap flight price was coupled with a charge for carry-on luggage. I didn't know about this, so I was a bit put off."

Pros: "Right on time, very no muss no fuss, reasonable cost. Would absolutely use frontier again"

Pros: "Cramed in like cattle cheap flimsy seats.where did the fun of flying go?"
Cons: "Its all about money"

Cons: "Outrageous bag fees. Need to read the fine print, since $80 per person for bags fees is significant."

Pros: "Left right on time. The crew was excellent. Everything was great. Would definitely fly with Frontier again!"

Pros: "Courteous crew while boarding. + My flight was on time and even arrived early. ++ The crew was very professional in their jobs, from boarding to offering drinks and snacks. Even though I declined. Always had a smile. However I think while getting off the plane they could have been a little more greatful or thankful. It was really no big deal. But she seemed a little nerved. Maybe she had a moment. We all do. Overall great flight."
Cons: "However. Padding on the seats would be appreciated. I have a bad back. Your seats were the most uncomfortable seats I've ever been in. I know there was padding. But very little. I fly about 4,times a year. Would be more app to using your airlines on a regular basis if this problem was resolved."

Pros: "On time and smooth flight."
Cons: "Expensive tickets and baggage. Plane smelled like the toilet. Could have been cleaned better between flights."

Cons: "It took over an hour to retrieve checked luggage."

Cons: "They lost my bags"

Pros: "Plane didn't crash"
Cons: "Nickel and dime everything"

Pros: "On time, friendly, no surprises."

Cons: "Rough ride"

Pros: "It was cheap and left on time and arrived early. Crew was polite, pilot was funny. Can't really rate the food since I didn't buy any. There was no entertainment."

Pros: "clean comfortable flight"
Cons: "need TSA pre check!!!"

Pros: "I liked the fares but then you had to pay to book seats, baggage, and not even a complementary soda. It is a shame that you have to pay to have a soda while in flight. On the way there we got to load first due to my husband's handicapp."
Cons: "All the other fees that then don't make the flight a great deal. On the way back from Orlando my husband was not able to get a wheelchair and we asked 4 times to get one."

Pros: "Great flight wished the seats had more padding."

Pros: "Seats sucked, no entertainment or WiFi, but I would do it again for the price"

Pros: "The crew was amazing! They even let my 7yo daughter take a photo in the cockpit with the pilot. Thumbs up Frontier."

Pros: "Everything went smoothly. Leg room better than many others."
Cons: "Seats are stiff. I was sitting in 4c."

Pros: "The flight was comfortable and on time. My ears pop really bad and flights, my first flight from Detroit to Orlando was not too bad and the flight back from Orlando to Detroit, the planes pressure was actually really good"
Cons: "I am 6 foot 8 inches tall. I was really disappointed to find out that I had to pay another $50 per person each way to sit in the larger seats. This raised the cost of the flights from $200-$400 For my wife and I to sit together. That was not an optional expense because the seats are so small that my legs were too long and it was not simply uncomfortable. I did not fit in the way of legroom. There should have been some information explaining this while I was booking the flights"

Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "The dark hair stewardess was condescending."

Pros: "flying time"
Cons: "Bait and switch routine on the price I paid. I had to pay extra for each seat and ridiculous baggage fees. Way to unbundle and rip off the consumer..."

Cons: "Comfort Entertqinment Crew professionalism Food and drinks"

Cons: "Wheel chair services at the DEN airport left me off with a walk much farther then I was able to manage"

Pros: "The flight was three hours late and for the first 90 mins the gate display showed 41 mins late. $45 for a carry on bag and $40 to check a bag."

Cons: "I've used Frontier twice. Once for Thanksgiving week and once for Christmas week. Both times I had to wait 40-45 minutes to get my bag. The first time, the belt stopped working after already sitting and waiting 20 minutes for the the luggage to come to baggage claim. So myself and a large number of people had to wait an extra 20 minutes before someone decided to switch the our bags to a different belt. The second time there was no malfunction. Literally the entire plane and myself, who checked a bag, waited a total of 45 minutes before the first luggage appeared. Because I'm a considerate person, I prefer that my ride doesn't get a ticket or their vehicle towed for waiting outside for an extra 20-30 minutes or they waste their gas by circling around the airport until I finally say, "I have my bag." Mind you, this only seems to happen when I'm arriving to Orlando. I probably will be avoiding Frontier Airlines when picking my next flight."

Cons: "5 hours delay"

Pros: "it was a direct flight. It was the only carrier with a direct flight. The plane arrived with no difficulty."
Cons: "The Frontier website was misleading. On check in it asked to pick a seat assignment, which were charged additional money for. I tried to undo the seat assignment (after I went and read their policy that it was optional.) So the website is fixed, that it can not be changed. So I called Frontier and after a 45 minute hold time was told options (seat assignment) can not be changed and I had to pay for it. This added $24 each way for a total of $48 additional charge. Also only a small carry on allowed. so that added an additional charge of $30. The seats don't recline even a little bit. as it was an Airbus and not a Boeing plane. not as comfortable as Boeing. Less padding in seat also."

Pros: "The cost, the ease of booking, everyone was extremely nice. The 'Pilot' or who ever keeps us updated on flying & weather conditions had a great sense of humor and kept us entertained. The plane was clean & looked brand new. It was cheaper and easier to check a bag than mess with a carry on, if you set it up when you purchase your tickets. I had purchased a soda before boarding but the gave me a glass of ice at no charge (some places charge for the cup). No extra cost for seating unless you want a specific seat. We definitely plan on flying more & recommending it to family & friends. Plus it's cheaper than driving"
Cons: "Tight quarters, the seats are pretty much fitted, prob not very comfortable for above average size individuals."

Cons: "The lost our bags after they charged us for them. 10 other people also lost their bags"

Pros: "The crew was hilarious. Very professional and pleasant"
Cons: "Screaming child! No fault of Frontier."

Pros: "the price"
Cons: "to early"

Pros: "That i landed safely, that's always a positive and will always get you kudos in my book. Crew was nice & friendly."
Cons: "Well there were many, but first off: the seats didn't recline & thin as card board, I had to pay for everything, I wasn't made aware that I'd have to pay for even my carry on baggage, I could see that I'd have to pay maybe for the snacks & drinks, but carry-on?? That was seriously lame. Also, no Wi-Fi, in this day, you've got to have Wi-Fi, drop the carry-on charge and I'm sure folks will gladly pay for internet on the plane."

Pros: "Left and arrived on-time."

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "Seats smal. And uncomfortable Charged more for carrying than checked bags Not happy overall"

Pros: "Previous experiences with Frontier were fine, what you would expect with a low-cost airline."
Cons: "Flight was canceled. Only offers from the airline were rebooking at a later flight (only available one was FOUR DAYS LATER) or a refund. I don't expect the world, but they could have been more helpful in trying to find me a way home, or at least giving me a voucher or something that would make me consider flying with them again."

Cons: "Quick easy stress free"

Cons: "Everything is charged, and the airline appears to me as greedy and exploitative. The price for the trip does not include carry-on. I admit that not knowing the policy is my fault. But the policy is quite odd, and I feel as if I were cheated. The receptionist at the counter was rude to me. I have never had such a bad experience with an airline. Anyway, the plane landed safely, after horrible ups and downs (perhaps due to the conditions of the destination?) Thank you for your service. I just think that your manner is ugly."

Pros: "This was the only direct flight I found to Cancun which is a big plus. The price appeared cheap and I had recently flown on Frontier on a package trip booked through Funjet Vacations so was aware that seats are small, not well padded, do not recline at all and have the world's smallest tray for your beverages."
Cons: "When I checked in I discovered that we would have to pay $30-35 for checked or carry on bags each way! Only if you are booked through Apple or Fun Jet are you allowed one free checked bag so beware! This increased the cost by at least $60 per person if you can keep it down to just one bag per person. Also, there are not any complimentary drinks, you will be charged for everything. Lastly, my TS-pre check status doesn't matter since Frontier does not participate."

Pros: "Best price!"
Cons: "Probably the most uncomfortable flight I've ever been on. Seats are rigid, cannot recline. An 8-hour flight to Europe with decent seats is more tolerable than than my 3.5-hour ride to Cancun. Dare I say it's painful, and I'm not even old!"

Pros: "The crew was extremely rude"
Cons: "Better training for the crew"

Pros: "The crew was great shirt trip"
Cons: "Nothen"

Pros: "Wide aisle for easy passing."
Cons: "When I bought seats I was not given what I asked for"

Pros: "Front row seats are excellent..."
Cons: "No cons"

Cons: "I wasn’t sent an email or text letting me know the flight was delayed 3 HOURS!! I was traveling from Northern Michigan and would’ve changed my travel to Detroit had I known. I had to spend time waiting in the airport."

Pros: "Liked the leather seats. Clean."
Cons: "Aisle too narrow. Food prices for simple items very high.."

Pros: "Despite the delay the flight attendant really was accommodating and did the best To make everyone feel okay about it."

Pros: "Went to fort laud."
Cons: "Crew unfriendly, crew locked front bathroom door"

Pros: "The price!"
Cons: "The seats are quite small, and the seats do not recline at all. So little leg room for those that are tall, like my husband."

Cons: "The crew very kind an smiley. Being in time."

Pros: "The staff were amazing. Great job by all!"
Cons: "Seats were tight and uncomfortable. The kids behind us banged their tray tables on the backs of our chairs for the whole flight, sick people couching non stop, nothing the airline did wrong just not the best overall experience"

Pros: "The flight went smoothly. Staff seemed attentive and efficient."
Cons: "Couldn't hear/understand announcements at gate or in flight. Uncomfortable seats with no padding resulting in aching back the entire flight. Fortunately, it was a short flight."

Pros: "The price"
Cons: "Seats too close and didn’t recline"

Pros: "Airplane was new and comfortable. The crew was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Being charged for the ability to choose a seat and bring a carry on bag makes Spirit less of a discount airline."

Cons: "I spent a lot of of $$ to get to Cancun and I imagine your company is making a lot of $$ charging what they do for anything!! The most uncomfortable seating I have EVER experienced!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The flight was delayed I missed my next flight and had to sit at the airport for 14 hrs"

Pros: "Price"
Cons: "They charge for everything and don't allow you to pay for bags when you purchase but if they aren't paid for when you purchase then you pay more. The customer service reps constantly try to upsell."

Cons: "First, when I booked I was not given option to pay for baggage or choose seats, meaning I wasn't able to use the cheapest option. I had to spend at least 2 hours on the phone with a Spirit agent to get to pay for my bags before arriving at the airport at all - I wasn't able to do it online. On day of flight: the first leg was delayed. When we got to layover our final flight had been cancelled with no reason given. We were booked on another flight 8 hours later which meant we got in late enough that I had to miss another day of work. The Spirit agent at the gate in Las Vegas was also extremely rude. I also didn't get any phone or email updates."

Pros: "I was easily able to upgrade my seat prior to flight."
Cons: "They charge for a carry on bag, charge more for checked luggage than any other airlines, charge you if your bag is over 40 lbs (not 50 lbs like all other airlines), they don't provide any complimentary snacks/drinks on plane. Flight attendants all had a flat affect and looked liked they hated their job on both my flights. On departure flight it took over 30 mins to get luggage to the carousel. Will never fly spirit again."

Pros: "Quick boarding. No frills airline. Want a cheap seat and dont care about other things like reclining chairs then this is the airline for you. Everything besides a small personal backpack costs money. Want to bring your normal carry-on thats $55. Want food or drink thatll cost extra. No entertainment."
Cons: "See above"

Pros: "Nothing bad service all the way"
Cons: "Miss info paying for my bag 55 $ 18 $extra for my seat"

Pros: "I liked the VFW lounge and the free amenities for us veterans"
Cons: "Everything els, horrible everything..will never fly Spirit again"

Pros: "All went well. We took off on time and landed 9 minutes early. Our bags came out shortly after we got to baggage claim. The bags were not damaged in any way."

Pros: "Extremely low price and waived baggage fees for active duty military made our first Spirit flight wonderful. Attendants were friendly once on board."
Cons: "Downfalls were limited legroom, the baggage check line at DTW took over an hour and many kiosks were broken and could not print boarding passes."

Cons: "My flight to Philadelphia due to "weather." No notice, no effort to place us on another flight. Typical Spirit which is why I try to avoid flying with them whenevet possible. My mistake."

Cons: "I was charged $10 twice for my bag and $10 for my seat, going and coming, since it wasn't a non stop. What a rip off. I had to get off the plane and get back on the plane and sit in the same seat and be charged another $10. NOT A GOOD way to treat customers if you want them to return."

Pros: "The experience was pleasant. Nothing to complain about. The crew was polite and the plane was clean"
Cons: "The cost for things such as pop or snacks was a little high."

Pros: "I got to Vegas to see my brother that I haven't seen in 25 years."
Cons: "The whole plane ride, uncomfortable, tight seating, noisy!"

Cons: "Had no seat assignments until last minute. They were all confused about seating the last few people. Actually on the plane trying to find seats for two people. Spirit is the worst airlines"

Pros: "The crew was very nice and pleasant to interact with. Best part of the flight."
Cons: "Seats didn't recline. Soda and water was not complimentary which is kind of a joke that a major airline can't even provide that service. Bag fees are outrageous."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "The waiting for the flight about 6 hours . Not happy at all. And changing of hours I received like 5 emails with different hours. Not happy at all."

Pros: "great staff"
Cons: "no water without paying"

Cons: "It was not clearly conveyed when purchasing the ticket that baggage fees were not included in the base price. Thus, we not only had to pay to check 2 bags and 2 carry-ons for 170$, we also had to pay an extra 100$ because our checked bags were "overweight" at 50lbs (they only accept 40lbs bags) - and this was only ONE WAY. We will have to pay that $270 on our return flight as well. Ultimately our baggage fees cost us 4X more than our two ticket fares combined! Now I wouldn't call that a "bargain" by any means - we could have gotten two first-class tickets on delta for the total amount we ended up paying. We will never fly spirit again and will ultimately think twice when booking through kayak. What a bummer."

Pros: "It was a good flight except there isn't much leg room on your planes and it would be nice to recline a little. Also, the charge for carry-ons is excessive and makes other airlines more appealing."

Cons: "Missed my initial flight and never made it to detroit"

Pros: "Friendly enough staff"
Cons: "$150 in fees to carry one bag apiece Ridiculously little legroom if you don't purchase more"

Pros: "It was the worst flight ever. The only good thing was the baggage clsim. Which we did not have to pay for."

Pros: "My seatbelt was broken and they came very quickly to fix it before we could take off. Flight was quite rough due to turbulence but obviously that was not the fault of the pilot."

Pros: "Crew were friendly"
Cons: "Waiting over hour for luggage to be unloaded, seats were uncomfortable, $50 for checking a bag a little crazy too"

Pros: "Efficient operation. Of course there was no entertainment and I did not purchase any food so I can not comment on the food."
Cons: "Having to wait 8.5 hours in LGA because the boarding doors were closed 15 minutes prior to departure and I arrived at the gate 10 minutes prior to scheduled departure because I was stuck in a traffic jam for over an hour because of an automobile accident."

Pros: "Always enjoy flying spirit. With budget airlines what I'm looking for is a cheap price and on time flights. Spirit fulfilled both."

Pros: "The price of the ticket"
Cons: "My luggage was sent on another airline and another city. When I initially asked the desk attendent in Houston for help, she literally said "No". Spirit overall has poor customer service but this shocked me. Although Olivia who worked that same evening was amazing. I've been flying for 25 years and had never had an issue with any of the dozens of airlines I've been on even more budget airlines than spirit. This is my second time flying Spirit and I will NEVER make the same mistake again."

Pros: "My flight was delayed. Then once we were seated and the door was closed we sat on the runway for at least 35 min."
Cons: "My flight was delayed. Then once we were seated and the door was closed we sat on the runway for at least 35 min. I also find it ridiculous that in order to pick any seat even if it's in the back of the plane ..u have to pay additionally."

Pros: "cheap"
Cons: "Michigan to Vegas was far too long to be flying spirit. Uncomfortable and unfriendly."

Pros: "On time and really inexpensive"

Pros: "Flight was good. Plane was over an hour late taking off. Not good for being on time. Bummer."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "The flight was reasonably cheap. No delay, actually arrived early."
Cons: "The seats are tight and non-reclining. All of us had trouble with our ears painfully hurting in flight not just on ascent or descent. Bad cabin pressure I presume. No frills I get but at least use the standard 50lbs weight not 40lbs. Another way to get you in the pocket. Then they determined it by all bags, not one by one. Rip off."

Pros: "1 hr and 40 min delay"
