Pros: "Excellent very good"
Cons: "Good service excellent"
Pros: "The plane, crew was clean, newer and had TV's in the backrests. Remember to bring headphones! Seats are tight, but the crew was friendly and may the flight experience positive."

Cons: "Flight Minneapolis to Detroit was delayed which caused us to miss our original flight and go out a day later."
Pros: "Media options were ok."
Cons: "I received a frozen beer and no napkin. Beer began to overflow, and I sat there for about 10 minutes before another flight attendant walked by. Her attitude was less than desirable upon seeing the situation. Also my luggage never arrived in Singapore. Shanghai didn't have any notification, so I assume it was lost on the Delta end. Overall I am very disappointed and will be seeking a non-delta affiliate for my next trip."
Pros: "Gate agent was kind enough to give me a seat upgrade since I wasn't assigned one."
Cons: "That I wasn't able to get a seat until I arrived at the gate"
Pros: "I was traveling with my young daughter (3 years old) and wife. The crew was really welcoming and accommodative of us. My little girl got the Delta wings pin (including a second one when she lost the first one), and was able to visit the flight deck. Extra kudos for my daughter being able to see a female pilot! :-)"
Pros: "Appreciate having movies available through wifi however didn't realize this until only an hour left in flight."
Pros: "I enjoyed not having a layover."
Cons: "I do not like being charged to bring a bag. I feel like a 560 fee should include a bag."
Pros: "On time, and direct."
Cons: "The spacing between seats has gone too far. The man in front of me caused my knees great pain when reclining."
Pros: "The crew were excellent. Kept us updated throughout a long delay."
Cons: "We should have reached our destination at 7:40PM. We finally arrived about 9:50pm. We were held at the gate for about two hours while a mechanical issue was solved. The plane was not equipped with WiFi/internet and the entertainment was poor. Expected better from Delta."
Pros: "I appreciated that everyone gave us updates constantly to let us know the status of the flights"
Cons: "My flight from Detroit to Denver was suppose to land at 1:15 ish and I had an interview to make at 3:30 thinking that I would have plenty of time to grab my bags and and get a cab to greenwood which is where my interview was. The flight was delays almost 3 hours and I was not able to make my interview which was the whole reason I flew to Denver in the first place. I understand that things happen but now Im out of a possible job that I was interviewing for and I am also out the $250 that I spent on the flight. The flight was delayed because they didn't have a crew to fly the plane which blindside is always 20/20 however it seems like pretty poor planning."
Pros: "Arriving and departing flights were at totally opposite ends of airport"
Cons: "It isn't their fault the flight is so short that they can't serve everyone. I think they might be able to have a cart as you board to grab a selection though. And, there was no in flight entertainment,"
Pros: "...see above..."
Cons: "There was some delay in a flight attendant making it to our flight which delayed it 35 minutes."
Pros: "the attendant in first class was fantastic."
Pros: "We had great seats and the service was good."
Pros: "The fight was good, on time. Delta reps gave me an aisle seat so I could stretch out my leg with the injured knee. No one sat in the middle seat next to me so I had more arm room."
Cons: "There was a man seated right behind me who talked non-stop to a woman next to him. It was obvious that she did not know him, but he continued to tell her about personal issues in his life. He spoke for four hours without a minute of silence! Several of us seated near him were clearly uncomfortable. I put my iPod earphones for about an hour for a break, but could still hear him. I know that it's no fault of Delta, but it made for a weary flight."
Pros: "My flights from Detroit to New York was great. The flight was on time arriving and departing. Since it was the holiday weekend, Delta did a great job!"
Pros: "There was no entertainment and the flight served a small snack and drinks due to the shortness of the flight. So the marks in those two areas reflect more the shortness of the flight than Delta services. I liked the pre-flight tickets and the timeliness of all four flights."
Cons: "The plane was a little small."
Pros: "I like that every one was friendly and that the flight was early"
Cons: "The seats were so uncomfortable"
Pros: "Funny, engaging crew. Nice change. It was Thanksgiving, could have offered a free drink or a better snack."

Pros: "The crew was spectacular and so kind!"
Cons: "We couldn't board the flight for an extra half and hour."
Pros: "Great flight. No problems. Everything went smooth from take-off to landing. Got into Tampa early."
Cons: "I could get me phone to connect to the wifi during flight. I have Sprint. The guy next to me with Verizon seemed to have no problem at all."
Cons: "I travelled from usa to canada on 7 nov and after 2 hours waiting in airport they informed us that due to some issue Delta can not deliver our bagagges also one of Delta airport's staff behaved very badly (his name was Manny) , helpless and rude.I missed an important dinner meeting because of not having any suitable dress. I have many friends and family who lives in canada and usa but by facing this bad behaviour and problems never ever recomnd your airline to any of them."
Cons: "The climate control didn't work properly the whole flight. We sat on the tarmac for about 30 minutes after boarding. We sat in the plane for about 15 minutes after landing and the whole time the air wasn't working. Couple that with the fact that I was seated in the row in front of the emergency exit which actually has less room than a normal seat and it made for a miserable flight"
Pros: "Nothing bad, just nothing special"
Cons: "Nothing special here. Airbus plane feels old."
Pros: "On time. Efficient. Great updates from crew. Honored veterans. Clean."
Cons: "Indicated usb charging ports for all seats with in seat screens...there were none. Older plane perhaps? Big, annoyed sigh from attendant when I requested a half cup of coffee after she'd already served me a glass of water."
Pros: "Comfortable seats and 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."
Pros: "Comfortable seats & fast boarding"
Cons: "As always, the crew was friendly, professional and accommodating."
Pros: "Great crew and service"
Pros: "Being bumped to first class."
Cons: "A small meal would have been appreciated for first class cabin. Al that was offered was a cookie."
Pros: "Accommodation to any concerns"
Pros: "Fast boarding and unloading."
Cons: "Flight leaving on time."
Pros: "The staff were polite and the pilot kept us on time. The flight wasn’t over booked and I was able to have an extra seat between myself and the other passenger in my row."
Cons: "That due to the Kayak purchase I had to wait until the last group to board."
Pros: "It was on time. I liked the head rests on the seats."
Cons: "Many things Food Services Entertainment"
Cons: "There was a lot of announcements on the very early flight trying to get people to signup for a credit card...too early for all those unimportant announcements :("
Cons: "Disgusting attitude from the flight attendant. She laughed at me when i told her i was transgender"
Pros: "Easy check in."
Cons: "Service staff was friendly enough; maybe I’m used to southwest. As someone who is anxious to fly smiling faces are always appreciate."
Pros: "Lots of legroom in the exit row"
Pros: "The professionalism of the crew and the cleanliness was excellent!"
Cons: "The seats weren’t very comfortable!"
Pros: "All good"
Pros: "The seats were comfortable, the entertainment selections in the screen on the seat back were great, loved that there was more than one outlet for plugging in devices to charge, the sunset/sunrise lighting effect was really near"
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"
Cons: "The Flight was inconveniently delayed and all they offered us were some cheap snacks and soda. I was completely annoyed by the whole situation."
Pros: "The mobile updates were helpful and timely."
Cons: "The overhead space was smaller on this plane and as I learned on my trip to DTW my weekender carry-on would not fit with my shoes in it. Because of this, I pulled my shoes out and put them in a collapsible bag that fit under the seat in front of me along with my small personal bag as I had done on my previous flight. However, the gate agent would not allow me to board the plane and would not listen to my explainations at all as I tried to keep the boarding process moving along. She kept repeating "you have 3 bags" and made me steep out of line and check my carry-on (which I would then have to pick up at baggage claim). When I asked why I couldn't get out on the jetway like she had done for other passengers she said, " I only did that for airline employees" (quick happened to be a flight attendant from Spirit). My overall experience on both flights to and from Detroit was that the gate agents and flight attendants were the most unhelpful and rude airline employees I have delt with and I will stick to my preferred carrier, Delta, for my future flights back and forth to Detroit. They certainly make me feel like a valued customer when I fly them, which I did not feel with American."
Cons: "Wait for Baggage and 20+ mins getting to gate after we landed"
Pros: "Sears are comfortable and the entertainment is great as well."
Cons: "Not much to dislike."
Cons: "Nothing at all"
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"
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:)"
Pros: "I enjoyed the whole experience. The staff was friendly and the plane was clean."
Pros: "It was successful."
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."
Cons: "Turbulence, not there fault"
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: "Crew was friendly and helpful. Inter Seat spacing was not convenient."
Cons: "Ensuring seat in front of me was fixed to ensure it doesn’t over recline"
Pros: "The hotel price did not include taxes breakfast"
Cons: "We flew dtw to Frankfort we"
Pros: "It was a smooth, comfortable flight."
Cons: "The aircraft was late and caused a lot of stress and missed layovers. One of the crew members had a bad attitude when I offered to let my bags continue on the flight without me (I originally opted to deplane and stay in Detroit). I was only trying to be helpful and got my head bit off... I get It. It was a stressful situation, but the crew doesn’t need to add insult to injury. They’re getting paid hourly whether flights are on time or not. It’s the passengers who have a right to be anxious."
Cons: "Confusing carryon regulations. Said “no carryons” so I repacked & when arrived at gate EVERYONE had full sized carryons...!"
Pros: "I loved the pilot taking time to greet my boys and give them wings! My boys loved sitting in the co-pilot's seat and hearing "the plane talk." Once we got to our seats, the flight attendants were very helpful and kind and we, actually, landed early! Yaaayyy! My boys won't forget their flight to Houston because of the cool female and male pilots they met while traveling. Thank you!"
Cons: "I did NOT like how the seats are grouped in twos. I flew with two small children who could only sit together and I had to sit by myself and watch them; which was very hard. If I could change anything about my flight, I would change the age of children who need to purchase seats to four and up as most children under 4 want to sit with their mothers, so why should I pay for a seat they will not be using?"
Cons: "Plane too small"
Cons: "Good flight"
Pros: "Efficient, professional and speedy service"
Cons: "It was so late it left me in the lurch and ruined my week"
Pros: "Smooth flights"
Cons: "Delayed multiple times. Staff seemed uninterested in passengers. Not compassionate."
Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "The drink service was late and the seats were small"
Cons: "More leg room and on time!"
Cons: "There was only one person rescheduling and we got a faster reroute get plan on the phone. It was all pretty awful and we did not get to our destination until many hours after scheduled. Not at all a good trip."
Pros: "That was the worst traveling experience I've had to date. Yes, I understand there were storms and natural circumstances that held the flight and for that - I understand. What I do not care for is the lack of customer service. There was only one person at the counter in the airport. And let's not mention the unpleasant flight attendent on at 5 hour flight! Nothing offered for the inconvenience. Everyone including the pilot was just as irritated as the passengers. I usually prefer United when flying coast to coast but...worst experience yet."
Cons: "See above"
Cons: "Fight was delayed and I wasn't notified. I Didn't receive a seat assignment till I got to the gate."
Cons: "We were delayed with no real updates why"
Pros: "The staff were excellent ! Great attitudes, great personalities,very informative staff and pilot!!"
Cons: "Both flights were delayed!"
Pros: "Got a $300 voucher for giving up my seat. Flew with delta on a direct flight instead of having a 2 hour layover and got to my destination almost 2 1/2 hours earlier than originally scheduled. It was a win win."
Cons: "Having to run across the airport to catch my new flight and go through security twice. But in the end it was with it."
Cons: "Seats are a bit cramped"
Cons: "At least one check-in baggage should be free for the price."
Pros: "The crew were all very nice and clearly well trained. The seats had plenty of leg room. For being an early flight I was able to take a nap on the plane comfortably."
Cons: "It listed that there was private tvs for each passenger but I didn't see a single screen. Maybe I needed to be more proactive with asking about them."
Cons: "No cash food and beverage"
Pros: "On point"
Cons: "Everything on point"
Pros: "The boarding process went quickly and seats weren't too bad. Flight was pretty painless overall"
Cons: "Overhead bins were full so I had to put my carry on under the seat in front of me meaning less leg room. There was no entertainment."
Pros: "Entertaiment collection was good, kept me engaged throughout for the entire duration of flight."
Cons: "Food was mediocre by standards of an international flight."
Cons: "After my first flight was cancelled for no clear reason, I was rebooked on one which was 8 hours later (not the one of the first flights out). When I arrived to the airport my flight was then delayed another hour. This was two days after my previous flight with United which had us sitting on the tarmac for 2 hours waiting for updates about whether or not we could take off."
Cons: "The plane never left we sat in the plane for a 1 hour and 30 minutes before they told us to get off .. Then they kept saying the plane was leaving up until the time I Miss my connection flight .. Then they make it seem likes its your fault... NEVER AGAIN !!!"
Pros: "I was able to get a seat change so that I had some great leg room."
Cons: "There was no internet or video content without huge fees."
Cons: "Because my first flight from detroit was an hour late i missed this flight and flew American which that flight was nice"
Cons: "Delay n missed my 2nd flight Then a 50 min flight was canceled"
Pros: "The crew was always striving to make sure the flight was as comfortable as possible. They have me a couple perks for being in the military and that made my flight very enjoyable. I will definitely start flying with United more often"
Cons: "No bad comments on my behalph"
Pros: "friendly crew and good flight,,"
Cons: "why load the plane front to back,,Hassle getting by everyone,,A little common sense would go a long way,,,"
Pros: "The flight was not fully booked so there were plenty of empty seats for everyone on to spread out."
Cons: "The flight was minorly delayed for de-iceing, but not more than maybe 30 mins or so. Not even worth saying what I didn't like about the flight when its necessary!"
Pros: "Everything went smooth and on time."
Cons: "Plane was small and the space felt a little tight but was not too bad."
Pros: "Seating was comfortable."
Cons: "The plane departure wa two hours late leaving causing missed connections. There were two United employees at the counter and one left. They were to help us change connections so te line was long and VERY slow. Half of us didn't get the connections changed. We de larded in Houston with connections that were unreasonable. United employees rude and not helpful. I had to fly to San Francisco then to Ontario making a long terrible day."
Pros: "Everything was perfect, from the boarding process to the seats, things went well."
Cons: "The customer service was horrible and I was stranded for two additional days."
Pros: "Long delay"
Pros: "Not a damn thing."
Cons: "My flight was held back 2 hours because "a flight attendant called off". So I missed my connecting flight "I touched down as the connecting flight was supposed to take off". I was put on a standby list for a flight leaving later that night and I didn't get it. I was told I had to wait until 7am the next morning to get on a flight. After asking, I was given a hotel, cab, and 2 food vouchers. The taxi took me to the hotel united chose. I got there and there were no vacancies. I had to pay for my own taxi to a different hotel that luckily took my voucher for the other hotel. after all this mess I only got 2 hours sleep. The 7am flight waited for its connecting flights. This delay cost me a third of my trip and money on my first night at my hotel."
Cons: "Had to run from one plane to another. Was told that plane was overbooked and I could not get on. Arguments over who and how many could get on delayed plane by over one hour. I was allowed on, but our plane could not land in Aspen as a snow squall socked it in just before we arrived. Had to bus in from Grand Junction in unheated bus. arriving at 3 am. Worst trip to Aspen, ever."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Flight delayed by 2.5 hours. Had to sit another 30 minutes on thr tarmac upon arrival. Made everyone on the plane check rolling carryons, said they would hand them back to us upon leaving the plane. Then told us when we were leaving the plane told us we would have to get carry ons through baggage claim. Then baggage claim was not ready had to wait another 45 minutes to retrieve our carry on items. Wifi stopped working halfway through the flight."
Cons: "Flight was 20 min late, and then on top of that an hour delay happened. The courtesy drink I had, which was coffee, was bad. The WiFi I had in my seat wasn't working, and the crew seemed more somber than cheery. I did not at all enjoy my flight. Also, becuase the flight was that late, my ride couldn't pick me up so I had to fork out 50$ for cab fare."
Pros: "We finally arrived, thankful. But upset. The flight was good after we got going.."
Cons: "My flight was cancelled and i missed my meeting on Dec.10, 2015.. We were suppose to go Washington to Portland, Maine.instead we went to New Newark..At lenght wait... And after all that waiting we are offered a drink of soda or juice. What gives? Nothing else?"
Cons: "It was snowing in Aspen when we tried to land. We left late for whatever reason I can't remember and then a de-icing that they said would only take 10 minutes took 30. Aspen airport has a strict closure law of 11pm. We didn't get above Aspen until 11:05 then the runway wasn't cleared off so we had to circle around and attempt again. They couldn't keep up with the snow to keep the runway clear. If we would have been 15 minutes earlier and had not been delayed for numerous reasons, we would have been able to land since the storm was just starting and the people on the runway at aspen airport would have had more time to clear the runway instead of it being after their shift was over. We didn't land back in Denver until 12:15 and I didn't get to my $250 room until 1:30. Why is it that I have to pay for errors of other people? Not to mention that I missed almost a full day of work and will be docked pay for that as well (another $100) because we didn't get back into Aspen the following day until after 1:00 (also because of awaiting aircraft). I am sick of awaiting aircraft excuses as well!!! These are united's fault and travelers recieve zero compensation for their tardiness!!!"
Pros: "Excellent experience sleek look and roomy"
Cons: "lost bags missed flights rude staff no concern for helping figure out next step"
Cons: "DTW was a mess to many people traveling without a clue as to how to get through TSA it boarding process or bin space."
Cons: "Lower the price for a carry on. Flight crew was very friendly."
Cons: "Flight apparently was cancelled 48 hours before but no one contacted me. I was able to check in with Frontier and get the gate and seat assignment even though the flight had been cancelled the day before. I found out when I arrived at the gate at the airport. Frontier did nothing to help me get to my destination. I was forced to buy a last minute ticket on another airline to get to my business meeting."
Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "Frontier never has enough staff to handle checking baggage and they nickel and dime you for an uncomfortable seat."
Cons: "The worst airline to fly on. Over sold flight by 4 people all checked in so didn't have a seat. Took us over 30 min to get through security and then had to run to gate only to have the manager yell at us to get on the plane. Take note.... we were traveling with a 16 mos old."
Cons: "Poor check in experience"
Pros: "Quck, friendly staff"
Cons: "Tight seats, no water offered to drink"
Cons: "On time and average comfortable"
Cons: "More delay notices and flight departure changes than I can count. Conflicting times in email notices versus the app versus text alerts. Customer service went straight to voicemail. I may have been able to drive across the country faster. Currently arriving in Denver. My connecting flight left yesterday."
Pros: "Getting off plain"
Cons: "The total experience with Frontier"
Cons: "Only 1 cup of water. Aisles very narrow."
Cons: "Flight left Over 1 hour left. Waited on runway."
Pros: "We landed"
Cons: "Wasn't calling by zones, was pretty much a free for all to get on the plane."
Pros: "The crew was friendly"
Cons: "Starting with boarding- what happened to loading the back of the plane first? That was much more efficient! That way the people in the back don't have to wait for row 8 to get settled before the rest of the plane can proceed with boarding. Once you get to your seat, it's so uncomfortable! They're molded in such a way your head always leans forward, they don't recline, there's very little leg room or side room. Arm rests are half the size of the usual, and tray tables are also half the size! If you're on the plane for an hour flight, it's do-able, but any longer than that, you'll be miserable. For the record, I'm tall and thin, and I felt squished sideways."
Cons: "no free drinks? 2.99 for a coke? no pretzels? why i had to pay 70$ for my bags what"
Pros: "On time, nice seats"
Pros: "Very smooth check in since I paid for my baggage and seats prior to getting to the airport and I also had my boarding pass already printed off."
Cons: "The screaming child sitting next to me for the ENTIRE flight."
Pros: "Gate crew at Denver on May 2nd (afternoon) were just disorganized and confused. She was just stressed out for no reason. Seems like not a people's person and can't stay calm at ALL. Can't handle stress at all"
Pros: "Fun time great flight"
Cons: "Great friendly people"
Pros: "Overall, I was VERY happy with both my flights. I've been flying Spirit the past few times I've traveled and after flying Spirit for so long Frontier was a breath of fresh air! The lines to check in our luggage were minimal, each flight arrived about 30 min early to our destination, we got our luggage back in a timely manner. Operationally, our flying experience with Frontier went without a hitch!"
Cons: "No major complaints. As I mentioned, we've had been flying Spirit quite often and after so many headaches with flying that airline I was happy to pay a little bit more to fly Frontier and not run into any complications of any kind! Thank you for being operationally on top of your game Frontier!"
Pros: "They give front of line privilege to military."
Cons: "The plane was uncomfortable. The seats do not recline, there's no where to charge electronics and the planes were dirty. Both of my flights were delayed by two hours and updates of the flight status was not updated while little information was provided as to why the flights were delayed."
Pros: "There is absolutely nothing I liked about Frontier"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled and not rescheduled. I had to spend another $600 to fly out from Detroit that day in order to make it home for Christmas. I will never fly frontier again."
Pros: "Seats were bigger than I thought."
Cons: "Seats didn't recline."
Cons: "Being stuck on runway, waiting to take off. And very limited updates. Already a long flight ahead of us, waiting to take off is very depressing."
Pros: "I've learned to pack whatever I need into a backpack that's within their personal item limits. This makes traveling on cheap flights easy."
Cons: "Limited space and no amenities"
Pros: "Inexpensive ticket prices."
Cons: "Officially the worst chair I have ever been seated in. Not just on an airplane, the worst chair I have ever had the displeasure to sit upon. Even when the plane was not as full, there was no way to get a single moment of comfort."
Pros: "Like fact was affordable. Was not vacay but taking care of family member after surgery."
Cons: "I paid three times the amount for return ticket to LAX. No help from employees I dealt with. Was because I had changed return date twice. Lost two tickets due to change. Guess I really messed up but it was all due to FAMILY emergency. No love"
Pros: "They miss my bag in Denver"
Pros: "Flight attendants were kind and informative, there was still some leg room even though they obviously squeeze seats in. After the delay, they were quick to reschedule any missed connecting flights."
Cons: "We waited a half hour after boarding time to board, and then waited on the plane for an hour before beginning takeoff. Nothing available to eat or drink besides water or for purchase (I realize this is budget, but this always turns me off). Seats don't recline."
Pros: "The price of the flight... Crew was cool"
Cons: "Paying extra for an emergency exit seat and then on the plane what I paid for was non existant. Pretty shiesty if you ask me. Plane was dirty, wrappers not picked out from seat pockets. Seemed similar to a cattle car"
Cons: "My suitcase was broken into things are missing and frontier operator didn't seem to care said I wasn't missing enough to warrant a claim"
Pros: "They were on time."
Cons: "There was a charge even for soft drinks."
Cons: "When I booked the flight I was not given any information about paying for baggage ahead of time. Much to my surprise when we checked in we found out that carry on baggage was not free, and that we would have to pay to check bags. The plane itself felt especially cramped, crowded and flimsy."
Pros: "The flight was on time."
Cons: "I had to pay 40 for a carry on bag, although I'm pretty sure not everyone was made to pay that. In addition, when I went to check into my flight there was no attendent at the ticketing counter because there was no flight for 2 hours. The whole reason I get to the airport early is so I can battle the TSA line not wait to check in."
Cons: "They overbooked the flight, so we were told to get there two hours early, 3:30am! So we wouldn't loose our seats. The plane wasn't even full. And security doesn't open until 4am. A bunch of BS. They charge for carry on. They charge for check in. They charge for your seat selection. They charge for any type of good or beverage on the plane. $2 just for a small cup of coffee. I am surprised they don't charge to use the restroom. All the money I thought I saved from flying Frontier was quickly used to pay all the extra fees."
Cons: "My flight departed over an hour late, because the airplane arrived long after the scheduled departure time. I was just able to catch my connecting flight."
Pros: "Flying through the air"
Cons: "It took an hour and a half to get the checked bags from the plane to the baggage claim."
Cons: "worst airline ever"
Pros: "Direct flight and original time schedule!!!!!"
Cons: "Didn't care for the 3 hour flight delay. Flight was supposedly delayed due to thunderstorms in the east. Was a bit disappointing and frustrating."
Pros: "Trip boarded on time. Personnel were very friendly."
Cons: "Paying $1.99 for coffee. Sitting on the tarmac in Denver for over 20 minutes because we came in early and there was a plane at our gate. The seat I sat in (5A) was filthy and the floor was disgusting. Also, for sitting so close to the front, there was no additional leg room."
Cons: "NOT HAVING OUR BAGS"
Pros: "Flight attendant's humor"
Pros: "It was on time. The crew was generally friendly. The take off and the landing was pretty smooth."
Cons: "I didn't like the cramped feeling. I was in the aisle so there was nowhere to rest my head."
Pros: "The staff on board was nice."
Cons: "For starters when checking in at the ticket booth they don't take cash. I had to buy a prepaid card and pay 45 with card fee to check one 30lbs bag. Then I had to sit in one of the most uncomfortable seats. Everything on flight as far as drinks and snacks went was purchase only . no wifi was available not even to purchase.. Then when I got to my destination my bags where not there I had to wait till 4:45pm the next day. No refund was given for baggage check they made it seem like it was no big deal."
Cons: "I don't like to pay for my carry-on or my seat selection. The seats are very uncomfortable. The staff was crabby. I will not fly Frontier again."
Pros: "roomy-ish seats for a domestic flight, however when the folks in front reclined, I could not use my tray table..."
Cons: "When you go to check in and choose your seats, each seat has a dollar amount...I thought I already paid for my ticket!! What they don't explain is that you can check in at the airport and get your seat assignment (without paying extra) and leave it to chance, or pay for a seat reservation in advance. Water was free...that's it. You could buy "snacks" with a credit card only. We sat on the tarmac for 1/2 hour waiting for another flight to leave...this airline company feels new, like they are "flying by the seat of their pants"...in the long run, I paid the same amount as a more well known carrier, so I don't see the benefit to their "spare" and "more affordable" approach."
Pros: "Breckinridge Bourbon!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 6 times for a total of 5.5hrs later than scheduled. Ruined all manner of plans. Was issued a meal voucher literally minutes AFTER every restaurant in the airport closed. Baggage fees are ludicrous."
Cons: "VERY uncomfortable seats!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
Pros: "Cramped seating and I'm a small person. Also the head rests do not adjust making it very difficult to sleep. the speakers were so loud i thought my hearing would be damaged every time the crew came on to speak. Otherwise things were efficient and the crew was great."
Pros: "boarding was fast"
Cons: "the kiosks didn't work, there was a long line, no one explained it was for baggage only, there was someone in another line that I found after I was in first line for 30mins doing the tickets, then she left w/o warning, no one at the counter for a while before another stepped in. Also, poor customer service, yelling at passengers to step up to line, waving them forth to counter rather than stating, 'next please'. Not friendly"
Cons: "They charged us an arm and a leg for our carry on!"
Pros: "The low initial ticket price"
Cons: "Having to pay for a seat and baggage after buying a ticket. I got an earlier standby Delta flight on Friday so I skipped the first Spirit flight (which ended up being delayed anyway). On my flight back to Denver today, I found out in the terminal that my entire trip was cancelled because I missed my original outgoing flight. I was never notified of this cancellation through email or phone call. I was then asked to pay another $200 for a one way ticket back to Denver. Luckily I was able to fly standby on Delta again instead. Never flying Spirit again. Terrible customer service as well."
Pros: "Thank you to the staff member who got us through TSA in order to board our flight on time. Very close call. Without her quick thinking we would not have made it home in time for my sons first day of his new job as a lifeguard for the YMCA."
Cons: "Spirit check in line to check bags was ridiculous. Waiting an hour before getting pulled out to fast track the line for our Denver flight."
Pros: "Quick. On time."
Cons: "Seats don't recline :/"
Cons: "They cancelled flight. Offered horrible 8 hr layover"
Cons: "There was a 45 minute flight delay."
Cons: "Flight was announced as cancelled 3 hours before boarding time, then 2 hours prior to boarding was announced it was running on time, then delayed 6 times. Although I paid for a seat reservation so I could sit next to who I was traveling with, Spirit separated us and would not refund me the cost. Agents at the gate were not helpful or friendly."
Pros: "Ease of booking. Crew"
Cons: "Hidden costs after booking flight such as seat, carry on."
Pros: "That we landed"
Cons: "I'm very mad that I had to pay 50.00 for my luggage when I could have carried it on. Your MAN at the counter said I couldn't n it was clear that I could have over i was in board!! I want a refund!!!!"
Pros: "cheap fares"
Cons: "3 dollars for a Coke"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled due to a crew issue at Spirit. The airline did nothing to assist in rebooking. Had to buy a ticket on another airline."
Pros: "Everything on time, flight happened as it should"
Cons: "Seats are really small. I had difficulties fitting in"
Cons: "Spirit broke my luggage. The staff was very rude. And hidden fees are everywhere. It's worth it to pay 20/25 more on a ticket with out hidden fees. Never again."
Pros: "I liked the VFW lounge and the free amenities for us veterans"
Cons: "Everything els, horrible everything..will never fly Spirit again"
Pros: "On time and staff very accommodating"
Cons: "No much leg room"
Pros: "The seats were awesome and there were 20 seats available so I got to pick any seat."
Pros: "The fact the plane did not crash"
Cons: "The stemwardist was a jerk. The nickel and dime you for everything gets old. It's not any cheaper to fly with them when you have to pay for everything. They will not even give you a cup of water while on the plane unless you buy a 20oz $3 bottle of water. Overall customer service is very poor!"
Pros: "Our entire experience & 5$3 big front seats"
Cons: "That I have to pay $55 for a cary on lol but these are he breaks."
Pros: "Flight was on-time, boarding was early."
Cons: "Tiny seats - ok since I am short but would be rough for a tall person"
Pros: "Super cheap fares if you pack a backpack instead of a "rolly" carry on or shoulder bag!"
Cons: "Very tight squeeze in the middle seat. Worth it to save $150."
Pros: "We tried to pre-register through the website and we couldn't website was horrible they charge to change seats and they charge for carry-on luggage which I've never heard before on any airline they try to nickel and dime you to death. I highly recommend you don't take this airline ever"
Cons: "I went to my dads funeral and they wanted to charge me for baggage changing seats and completely unprofessional I recommend not flying with spirit ever again the website was broken and could not pre-poured the night before"
Pros: "The overall experience for the actual flight was great. The crew was friendly and helpful, the seats were pretty comfortable with what space I had."
Cons: "This was my first time flying Spirit and I was unaware of all the extra fees, I ended up paying the same if not a little more than I would have with another airline. I ragweed food and entertainment a 3 because there was no N/A option, I brought my own onto the flight and did not purchase any from the airline."
Cons: "BEFORE YOU GET ON THE PLANE SO MUCH EASIER ON DELTA I WILL NOT BE BACK"
Pros: "It's always the cheapest option."
Cons: "...well not always. I am accustomed to flying these two airlines that share the same model. Fly with one small backpack."
Cons: "I arrived 2 hours before my flight and needed to drop off my checked bag. I waited in a huge line at the detroit airport. I made it into the roped section of the line then a "last call" was made for Denver flights and they went to a different line. I was told (with a bunch of other people) that since we were into the roped section of the line we should stay. Then all the denver passengers behind were brought to the front and the people that were told to "stay in line" got screwed and failed to make the flight due to simply trying to check baggage. Approximately 30 of us were told to go down to the spirit office to rebook flights. The office workers were no help and very unsympathetic to the fact that people's travel plans were ruined. I ended up having to rebook a new flight from a different provider that day to protect my other plans at my destination."
Cons: "To start, when we arrived at the Detroit airport at 5:30am for our 7am flight, the line to check bags was clear across the building. It eventually got to the point where they had to make a special line for our flight to check in at around 6:30am. Fortunately we were towards the front of that line and when we finally got through security we raced to our gate and made it just before they were about to close the doors. There were many people behind us still trying to make their way either through the check-in line or security and we tried to speak up and tell the flight attendants just that as they announced we were shutting the doors and about to push back. One lady sitting near us was on the phone with her friend whom she was traveling with that was at the gate along with a dozen other people trying to get on the plane. When we tried to tell the flight attendants to wait, one flight attendant had the dignity to come over to me and said "if my party wasn't on the plane then I could get off the plane." Finally, they opened the doors one last time and about 15 people came through, however, there were still plenty of open seats on a flight that typically is quite full so I'm certain many more missed the flight. Once we got to Denver it was no surprise that only about 12 pieces of luggage came through the carousel so more than half the plane was missing their luggage. We were then told that if we had a late check-in, which everyone who checked luggage did, then we would have to come back to the airport to retrieve ti. Fortunately, they made an exception for our flight and our luggage was delivered the next morning. All in all, I'm extremely disappointed and frustrated with the way Spirit handled everything, with the exception of finally agreeing to deliver our luggage. The lack of communication, efficiency, and concern, between everyone at Spirit, those checking people in, the flight attendants, the luggage crew, the person in charge of lost luggage, is so unacceptable. From now on, I will gladly pay more just so I NEVER have to fly Spirit ever again! They not only lost my business but also from those who were on the flight with us standing in line to file our lost luggage claim as well."
Pros: "Friendly staff."
Cons: "The checking in process was fine, as Long as you added your carry on bags within the same process for a smaller fee. However, the "random seating" option that you choose is not actually choosing a seat; therefore I was denied boarding even when I checked in and my seat was given to someone else. I was told nothing until the plane left the terminal and I was told to "get comfortable" while waiting. An hour later, I was given the option to fly the following day home to Denver with 3 layovers, and a full day of traveling. Its hard to travel this type of airline when they have complete disregard for personal plans and do not communicate with their customers the hidden fee's. Bare fare is a way of saying you are paying for the possibility of flying, not even a guaranteed seat."
Pros: "Everything people say about Spirit is true... you get what you pay for...and then more payments on top of that...."
Pros: "Professional ,cheerful staff. Smooth flight"
Cons: "Cramped seating... Lack of leg room"
Cons: "Thought spirit wasn't a rip off before think again. Spirit now charges u to take a damn carry on. I paid 55 dollars for my carry on bag now you do get a personal item that is the size of a purse. Ok sure let me pack 4 days worth of clothes into a purse it's so ridiculous. Never flying spirit again."
Pros: "We made it to our destination."
Cons: "My luggage was lost and I'm without any belongings for myself or my 1 yr old baby!"
Pros: "Everything went as planned. This is a direct flight with no layovers or stops."
Cons: "The prise for a carried on bag. $55 dollars is to high. Should be $35 dollars at the most."
Pros: "No frills or hassles"
Pros: "The crew was very nice"
Cons: "The leg room wasn't there. We were very cramped there was no entertainment at all on a 3-2 our flight almost three-hour flight. Water is not even free you don't even get a courtesy copy of papachooz everything is paid for it was cold on the plane they didn't have a blanket. I hate spirit I would rather pay the extra for the ticket price and have some conference and some amenities than a beer flight price and be miserable 2 to 3 hours on a flight this horrible Spirit needs to do better"
Pros: "It was on time and got me where I needed to go."
Cons: "Nothing was done to dislike,nothing."
Pros: "The crew was friendly. I've always found Spirit employees friendly. Save on this flight the one flight attendant, when I asked if their was WiFi on the flight replied, "Only in your hopes and dreams honey.". That was a little unprofessional."
Cons: "Man, I really want to like Spirit but now that I've been making money for a bit I just can't justify the annoyances. No WiFi on some flights, no TSA pre-check (that's HUGE) Why Spirit? Why? The baggage fees too. I get the low-cost carrier thing, but some of these things just don't make sense anymore like not having WiFi."
Cons: "Seats are a little cramped"
Pros: "The only good part was finally getting off my flight."
Cons: "The plane was sitting there but we didn't board till an hr and a half after the time we were supposed to leave. The seating is very tight. They charge a lot for carry on and checked bags. Everything's costs on the flight including water. They tried selling us on a spirit master card for the last ten mins of the flight by offering free miles."
Pros: "The only reason I fly Spirit is because of the cost of the ticket. I'll deal with the rest of the customer service issues, but the people at the ticket counter were rude along with the flight attendants."
Cons: "The flight boarded late, although we made up the time in the air. The flight attendants were unfriendly and, honestly, seemed like they didn't even want to be there. Their demeanor was standoffish and, as if we were keeping them from getting home faster."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Flight delayed 1hr but plane was at gate on time. Obviously crew was over scheduled. Totally spirits fault. Late arrival caused a hungry nite for my family as restaurants closed when we arrived. Cost skyrockets due to all the charges. $3 for a soft drink??????"
Cons: "Delayed like many spirit flights I have been on in the past"
Pros: "There was a delay from the incoming flight before us. The staff were gracious and available to answer questions."
Cons: "There was nothing with Spirit's control that could have made the flight better."
Pros: "Flight was cancelled. Had to go Southwest at premium price!"
Pros: "The crew was very attentive and positive."
Cons: "The flight was delayed, but the communication regarding the reason and/or expected boarding time was very poor. In addition to the poor communication, we boarded even later than expected. After landing in Denver it took more than an hour for anyone to get their bags; I waited 1 hour 5 minutes at the baggage claim for my bag."
Pros: "Spirit did ultimately get me to Denver."
Cons: "It took over 48 hours to get from Detroit to Denver due to weather and security issues. The fact that these issues came up is not necessarily the fault of Spirit but Spirit did not offer any conveniences or accommodations while I had to wait for the issues to be resolved."
