Pros: "Flight attendants were amazing. Definitely some of the best I've ever encountered."

Cons: "Disgusting attitude from the flight attendant. She laughed at me when i told her i was transgender"

Pros: "Friendly, efficient"

Pros: "Nothing"
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."

Pros: "Boarding"
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."

Pros: "Comfort"

Cons: "Not enough room between seats"

Pros: "The least service I have seen among all the airlines I have traveled so far"

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: "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: "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: "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"

Cons: "Chaotic boarding Multiple delays Unfriendly ground staff"

Cons: "The seat in economy was incredibly uncomfortable. Seat had a slight forward incline which made a finding a relaxing position impossible."

Pros: "The flight attendants were nice enough and the snacks/beverages were average/as expected."
Cons: "This flight was delayed for more than 2.5 hours and the communication was poor. The gate agents weren’t helpful. The airport didn’t have enough outlets. Or chairs. My flight out to this location was also delayed by over three hours. At least they tried to make us feel better by telling us what was going on. The staff at the airport were rude and unhelpful and United airlines is unreliable."

Pros: "Small aircraft, not crowded. The single window seat on the left side of the plane allowed me to stretch my legs."

Pros: "Yes"

Pros: "Seat good, boarding good"
Cons: "It was terribly cold, was not even offered snacks, the one steward was chomping on his gum very unprofessional on checking in"

Pros: "Crew were friendly. The entertainment system they have was excellent. Plus gave out free ear buds, cheap ones I’m sure but still free."
Cons: "The leg room on this flight was very tight. I’m a short person and it was still very tight and uncomfortable."

Cons: "It took 45 minutes for the luggage to arrive at the carousel, and they sent it to the wrong carousel. Not sure if it was at the other one the whole time, or just took that long."

Pros: "Nice flight. Easy check-in and boarding, friendly staff"

Cons: "Delayed for no reason"

Pros: "Staff somewhat friendly"
Cons: "See above comment regarding no beverage but gave pretzels."

Cons: "We flew dtw to Frankfort we"

Cons: "We were delayed in Detroit due to deicing the plane. We landed in Houston late. They let us and a few other couples off the plane first so we could make our connection. We sprinted off the plane and arrived to the gate two minutes after they closed the door; plane was still there and they would not let us on. United knew we were coming and they closed the door anyway. The next flight out to Liberia, Costa Rica wasn’t for two more days. They ended up rebooking us on a flight to Panama which had a connection to San Jose, Costa Rica. Much farther of a drive from that airport. Very disappointed in how United handled this situation, we were told if it was a bigger group they would have held the plane for us. I will never fly United again but I know it has nothing to do with Kayak. Kayak has always been great and is my go to for booking plane tickets."

Pros: "I was connecting from another flight. The plane left on time, and arrived earlier than planned. I've had much worse experiences on domestic flights, and I was expecting delays."

Cons: "I was assigned a seat in the last row on the plane. during the flight two stewardesses sat in the area behind me. they were VERY LOUD during all the flight. So loud that I couldn't read the book I brought along. This was the leg from DTW to DEN."

Cons: "I had to cancel my trip due to family illness. And I guess that is not acceptable to United Airlines for a refund or reschedule without a fee that I could actually buy a new ticket for the cost of their fee. So I am losing out $578.00 Not happy."

Pros: "The flight was fine. Nothing that should have been positive stands out as missing."
Cons: "The first class flight attendant (male) was the worst. No interest in being on the plane, didn't bother to speak clearlybon the announcements. United should pull this person off of flight duty and deal with this person. The second is a terrible parent who let their kid cry the whole flight and afterwards in the jet way. This wasn't an infant had to be 4-5 years old and there was no parenting at all. The kid was old enough to be talked to. If you're kids can't handle flying, you don't get to fly."

Pros: "Flight was quicker than expected. The flight attendants were very nice!"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 30 minutes due to air control in Newark."

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."

Pros: "I think was a zero-drama, one-hour flight from DTW to IAD. Can't ask for anything better than that (seriously)."

Pros: "Comfy seats and a smooth ride."
Cons: "Waited to taxi for almost an hour."

Pros: "Better than driving to Chicago. But if you want to get there, best be early!"
Cons: "DTW is a busy airport on a Saturday morning. Even with TSA Pre-check it took an hour to get through security ... but keep us safe!"

Cons: "Cancel my flight I had to buy my own hotel room"

Pros: "Crew was very nice."
Cons: "That you had to pay for your entertainment--after all the fees and extra charges you pay when you buy the ticket, you would think the entertainment/TV would be free, or at least just the flight map."

Cons: "We were supposed to leave but had to wait on the runway. And I was a little cold , and the air was stale. Other than that it was great."

Cons: "Confusing carryon regulations. Said “no carryons” so I repacked & when arrived at gate EVERYONE had full sized carryons...!"

Pros: "Great trip only 1 stop no layover"
Cons: "Comfort of seats loading and unloading plane"

Pros: "Good"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Flight delayed only received a text about a rescheduled initial flight not my connecting flight waited in line for 2 hours only to find out I did have a connecting flight"

Pros: "The touch down was smooth."
Cons: "Revise your website to state accurately of the luggage allowance. I watched the people in distress because their carry on was a little too bulky."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "On time, comfortable but crowded"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Almost didn't get a seat."

Pros: "That I was able to get out of the ide seat"
Cons: "Because my flight was delayed I got re-routed so I no longer was. In preimier section and had to leave even later, and I was placed in a middle seat."

Pros: "It's annoying that you pay for seat upgrades and they stick ya in group5 boarding. It's just reminds people that they want to charge you for every little thing they can these days!"

Cons: "Good flight"

Pros: "Everything was smooth from boarding to deplaning. On-time departures and arrivals."
Cons: "Wish seats reclined and electrical outlets present for charging."

Cons: "Both flights were delayed!"

Pros: "Relaxing"

Pros: "Nothing really."
Cons: "Drinks and snacks."

Cons: "Fix the plane before it’s scheduled to take off"

Pros: "Got what I paid for"

Cons: "Baggage claim took one hour"

Pros: "Straightforward fares if you are literate and do your homework. Also love that short notice fares remain inexpensive. I will definitely fly them again"
Cons: "The gate service at Austin and New Orleans was bad due to airport operations, not Frontier."

Pros: "The chairs were very uncomfortable."

Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Great prices"
Cons: "Security lines too long, even with TSA Pre"

Cons: "The landing was horrible"

Pros: "Polite employees from Frontier, courteous and helpful. Knowledgeable, too."
Cons: "What happened to, snacks & soda on flights? Everything is *for purchase *.other airlines done have sales people on board, credit card, for purchase snacks ~ silly!"

Pros: "Quick boarding, and fair service"
Cons: "Nothing super fantastic to say, but also no real complaints!"

Pros: "Getting off plain"
Cons: "The total experience with Frontier"

Cons: "On both flights there weren't enough people checking bags. It took almost an hour to get through both times. More people and stations are needed."

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

Pros: "No comment on food or entertainment"

Pros: "It was fast easy simple. I thought charging for hand luggage as crazy but they seemed flexible about what a purse is. Ate nothing, didn't watch anything. Stewardesses warm and friendly."

Cons: "Delayed and delayed. Almost three hours"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Cons: "The plane departed 45 minutes behind schedule. When we arrived, 20 people or so did not receive their luggage. Frontier representatives were nowhere to be found. Finally someone came and herded us upstairs, gave us no information about our luggage, and had us form a line to file a claim. Frontier staff was utterly unapologetic and had no sense of urgency. I still don't know where my bag is. The plane was supposed to land at 12:45, and I left the airport at 3:30 and missed an important work meeting."

Pros: "The staff and pilots were great!"
Cons: "The seat I spent extra for."

Pros: "Due to purchasing carry-on at the last minute, had Zone 1 seating which was wonderful. Didn't care for the price very much but seating-wise great. Everyone was cheerful & friendly & due to the nature of this trip much needed. Have flown Frontier 1x before and both times gates were very convenient which was nice."
Cons: "I don't know. Was glad that majority of children/babies were more to the back of the plane."

Pros: "Flying through the air"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "The airline was prompt and actually ahead of schedule fly both departure and arrival on both trips. The plane was clean comfortable and all around fantastic for being a little older. The pilot was amazing, very conscious of movements and incredible landing skills."
Cons: "No free drink or peanuts."

Pros: "The staff"
Cons: "The delay"

Cons: "Stewart was not very friendly"

Cons: "very cramped seating. Fee for carry on. Not a good experience"

Cons: "Nothing, it was fine"

Cons: "the pilot almost crashed the plane"

Pros: "I find it unbelievable that Frontier could Fly in and Out of Denver under severe Blizzard like conditions."
Cons: "That you didn't cancel, while 800 plus flights were canceled and Frontier chose to Fly In It and Out of it."

Pros: "Everyone was extremely friendly and helpful!!!"

Cons: "Even had to pay for ONE carry on. Ridiculous. Everything was a charge, even selecting a spot to sit. Not what I expected."

Cons: "See above"

Pros: "None specific"
Cons: "Unremarkable"

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

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

Cons: "They lost my bags"

Pros: "The Denver people who helped"
Cons: "My brand new suitcase was broken after paying for it to be checked. My clothes and bath bag was on the pick up alone. When it was in my bag. Had to ask for tape to keep it somewhat closed to the rode and hotel. Still no email from frontier !"

Pros: "Know what to expect and you will not be disappointed. If you demand a high end experience from any low end company ... you're behaving like an idiot."

Cons: "Rough ride"

Pros: "A mediocre experience that charged me for every interaction with the airline, including a can of club soda. An obnoxious business model."

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

Pros: "Great fare.awesome staff.had to wait to load bags.but will fly again"

Pros: "We never made it to New Orleans because there was an unbelievable number of people trying to check in and the usual number of people checking in to the point that the check in line was over 2 hours long. This is completely unacceptable that Frontier wouldn't be staffed enough to meet the needs of the people who are paying for flights."
Cons: "We never made it to New Orleans because there was an unbelievable number of people trying to check in and the usual number of people checking in to the point that the check in line was over 2 hours long. This is completely unacceptable that Frontier wouldn't be staffed enough to meet the needs of the people who are paying for flights."

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

Cons: "5 hours delay"

Pros: "I knew of the baggage policies so check in was easy and smooth. Other people seemed to have trouble with it so maybe baggage policies should be more advertised. Overall, great and comfortable experience for me."

Cons: "They didn't have paperwork done and we were sitting on the runway for over an hour waiting."

Pros: "Clean"
Cons: "Delays costed me tons of cash!"

Cons: "Wait time for a new jet"

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Plane was kinda rundown on the inside"

Pros: "Arrival time was on time."
Cons: "It was just so cold, but next time we will bring a blanket."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "No leg space, boarding process was long."

Pros: "Good staff, they know how to pick your needs"
Cons: "Not sure"

Pros: "The staff on the airline. The Pilot and Stewardess did a great job and were pleasant."
Cons: "The continued bag fees, it needs to be a one flat rate price. Your in airport staff were rude and disrespectful. They were not professional at any time."

Pros: "I’m medium build, average weight and the seat is too small. We arrive 15 minutes ahead of time, but sat on tarmac for 35 minutes. After exiting plane, no one mention or seemed to know where our luggage carousel was located."
Cons: "Being held up on tarmac for over 1/2 hour and NO ONE concerned that passengers didn’t know where to find luggage."

Pros: "flight was on time"
Cons: "Flown with my bag a million times and the first time i fly with Spirit i am charged 65 dollars by rude employees that argued with me and a few other passengers. will not fly with them again."

Pros: "Not such a full plane"
Cons: "Cost of luggage"

Cons: "Please at least give free cups of water. Every time I fly, someone needs a cup if water."

Pros: "Literally nothing"
Cons: "The flights are not cheaper than other airlines after all the baggage charges and everything it works out to be the same. Also in flight prices are ridiculous for even things like water. Never flying spirit again. Much rather pay a little extra for comfort"

Pros: "Price"
Cons: "Turbulence. Plane bounced and skidded upon landing."

Pros: "Liked having a scale to weigh my suit case before checking it in. Liked that our flights were on time Easy access to gates and terminal"
Cons: "Suit case can only be 40lbs. Most other airlines its 50lbs. Don't like all the ala cart expenses. Airplane seats are too close together for leg room"

Cons: "The passenger next to us smelled like vomit. It was terrible sitting next to him and I had to keep spraying my body mist every few minutes since it was extremely hard to breathe! He smelled like dead rats and old eggs vomitus combined! Worst experience in any airline so far! :("

Pros: "The fair is reasonable"
Cons: "we were few minutes late to check in. Charged $92 to rebook the ticket asked to go back home and return the next day instead of putting us on the next available flight. Our return ticket was cancelled and they asked us to buy another return ticket, that since we missed the other flight, the return portion was also cancelled. It is my first time, and it was a horrible experience."

Pros: "Price, friendly staff, and flight was on time"
Cons: "Deplaning - some guests plowed towards the front of the plane, may have needed some more communication for new flyers"

Pros: "Price of flight only."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seating!"

Pros: "It's Spirit, so people need to understand the business model. Tickets are as inexpensive as you will find, so everything else you pay for: checked bags, food, seat selection, etc... Food and drink were reasonable, especially noting the cost in the terminal. Measure your bag prior to leaving home to ensure it qualifies as a personal item, then simply sit down, shutup and get there quick and cheap."

Pros: "Every thing was on time."

Pros: "I love the tongue in cheek jokes from the crew. They made the flight delightful. We boarded quickly so we were able to leave early which was great. As long as you understand how the booking and flight works for spirit, it's great."

Pros: "Price ok and flight on time. Plane relatively new"
Cons: "Can't even get a sip of water without paying for it. Pretty crowded seating."

Pros: "Efficient staff"
Cons: "High additional charges for everything that would be included with airfare on other airlines."

Pros: "seating"
Cons: "could not get a free drink of water"

Cons: "Arrived 45 minutes below departure with no luggage and an empty TSA line. Told by Spirit employees that I arrive too late to make my flight and was refused a ticket...then charged a $99 rebooking fee for the next day. When pressed, they would not admitt that the flight had been oversold but stated that "It is Spring Break...so you may want to arrive earlier tomorrow.""

Cons: "Nickel and dime for everything. Bags, water, food, seats, boarding, security ALL had extra charges AFTER you pay for the ticket. By the time you pay all the fees your better off paying full fair on any other flight."

Pros: "Product, price and service"
Cons: "Limitations on weight of luggage"

Cons: "The ticket purchase process feels spammy and is filled with advertisement after advertisement for ancillary services etc. The carry on baggage fee at the airport is obscene."

Pros: "Quite a bit of room in seats as compared to other aircrafts, checked my luggage for free for being active duty military"
Cons: "No TSA precheck option"

Pros: "Profssional staff. We arrived 20 minutes early!"
Cons: "Perhaps a bit too much Spirit credit card promotion over the intercom."

Pros: "New planes."
Cons: "No PreCheck status allowed. No Lounges available to passengers. Crackers and water available for a fee. Overrated for boarding, food and entertainment. "Nominal" $50 fee to check first bag."

Pros: "I had to pay extra for a carry on that had wheels $100 but if I folded the wheels it was free. This does not make sense. The first attendant tried to pull a fast one. Thanks to the nice attendant who told me about the Gimmick Spirit tries to use on some of its costumers. No way to build trust and confidence."

Pros: "Prices"
Cons: "Customer service is bad"

Cons: "If you over 6' tall you will be miserable the entire flight. They pack as many people onto the plane as possible. The chairs don't even recline a bit. Then they charge you for every little thing. Jet blue is amazing in comparison."

Pros: "The jokes! The crew sprinkled these in at no extra cost! Loved being able to use the kiosk to quickly print boarding passes."

Pros: "After hearing only negative things about Spirit from everyone we spoke to we had very low expectations. We decides to chance it due to the schedule and price. While it wasn't a luxury experience, it was overall very reasonable. The boarding was well organized, the seats were fair, the overhead storage was reasonable and the flight was on time. We will definitely try Spirit again."

Pros: "N/a"
Cons: "My flight was delayed and it's over booked. The airline person was asking customers to volunteer their seats up. I felt I was watching the real version of the hungry games."

Pros: "I. Professional staff 2. Received an excellent flight price 3. My flight was smooth!"
Cons: "Had to go back to the gate 2 times before departing; made me a little nervous."

Pros: "Ticketing agent was really nice"
Cons: "When I booked ticket on kayak I was not given the option to purchase my checked bag ahead of time."

Cons: "Family of 30 stood in doorway not allowing easy path for guest to get off plane and then all went on plane first"

Cons: "I wanted to purchase water with cash was unable. Did not want to use card. Next time I will make certain I bring my own drink."

Pros: "Fast flight"
Cons: "Seating tight."

Pros: "Price. Time of day travel. On time arrival."
Cons: "Unavailability of water without having to pay for a bottle."

Cons: "The flight was an hour late"

Pros: "Clean, on time, good staff"
Cons: "Baggage fees too high"

Pros: "Crew was friendly and professional."
Cons: "Gate changed and delays were not announced to keep us informed. Communication with passengers helps us decide if we have time to go to the restroom, buy something to eat and call our friends or family who are picking us up. Please try harder to do this."

Pros: "No delays, a little more legroom than the first. At end any was better at delivering the jokes, so I was slightly less miserable."

Pros: "Everything was great except the seats are too close"
Cons: "Too many seats on the plane"

Pros: "Staff"
Cons: "Cramped"

Pros: "The seats don't recline so I didn't have to worry about being smooshed any further than I already was!!"
Cons: "The low fare is due to the charges for everything else: baggage, food, and beverages. The plane is jammed packed with people and very little room."

Cons: "Typical Spirit delays. This was a newer plane which was nice but not cleaned..floors dirty and trash in pockets"
