On time, cordial service,

Simple and easy

Had a crying baby the whole flight. When we arrived at the gate we had to wait for the gangway.

Don’t give me a chair that can’t lean back. I got one in both legs of my flight. And I know I did not select those seats.

We flew First Class to LA from Denver on the Delta-branded contract airline - Sky West. On the way back, we flew First Class on a Delta Airlines owned jet, and the experience was so much better. The flights should have been comparable; but unfortunately cost-cutting by Sky West was evident.

Cons: "It was great! Nice job Delta !"
Pros: "Good"
Cons: "Good for now"
Pros: "No entertainment on the plane and plane was very small..."
Cons: "Explain flight situations better.."
Pros: "Crew is amazing!"
Cons: "The Plane!"
Cons: "Rude crew. Dirty plane."
Cons: "Significant delay of departure."
Pros: "Very professional."
Pros: "I always have a consistently good experience on Delta. Everything was great."
Pros: "Crew was awesome, super friendly and helpful. Even the korean food options tasted delicious."
Cons: "Not plus size friendly. The bathroom is too small for a plus size person to be able to use and for a 14 hour flight I think that’s important. Also if you’re plus size and the person in front of you reclines, it’s impossible to pull down your tray fully."
Pros: "Everything ok. I was hoping to buy food but glad to see almonds as one of the free snacks. Delta seems to be upping its game a bit lately."
Cons: "No US carrier seems able to master smooth boarding without standing waits."
Pros: "The crew was great and the free entertainment was great"
Cons: "Bring back pillows and blankets especially on red eyes out of Anchorage"
Cons: "The DCA airport was having some problem. 1.5 hours late. Not very good."
Cons: "1.5 hour delay...no reason given!"
Pros: "The seat was great, I wish all seats on the plane were that comfortable"
Cons: "Nothing, everyone was great"
Cons: "No meal option and my video screen volume did not work"
Pros: "Every one but the gate agent at Detroit going to Seattle at 7:40 loading time on 4-11-19. She was mean and curt and would not get my seat corrected I had to sprint for at least a mile to even make it. We landed the same time they were boarding"
Cons: "The attendants on the Detroit to Seattle flight suggested I go talk to the gate agent to get my seat corrected. They said the flight was not full. So I did. To be greeted again by the mean agent you told me to take my rear and get it on the plane that the attendants didn’t know anything"
Pros: "Not comfortable a little but scary on the flight to Detroit. Way better coming back to Denver"
Pros: "The flight was very good in both directions. I was quite comfortable. On my return flight I left my e-reader on the plane. I didn't realize it until 2 days later. I called Delta and spoke with Tiffany. She was so helpful. She located my e-reader and I was able to go to the airport and pick it up."
Cons: "Carry brewed decaf coffee."
Pros: "Good entertainment selection and great crew"
Cons: "Seats are more uncomfortable relative to other airlines"
Cons: "delayed flight"
Pros: "There were minimal passengers on the flight so I was able to have the entire row to myself. The flight was also very short which is always nice."
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "We boarded close to on time, no hassles. Allowed my husband and me (retired military) to board early, thank you."
Cons: "LAX security is awful. We never left the airport (arrived LAX from Sydney AU) yet were forced thru security again. Had to remove shoes, was scanned and "frisked" by TSA to get to Denver. To go to Australia, Denver TSA waived the removal of shoes, skipped the scan for the metal detector and no one touched me, ditto for LAX on the trip to Sydney. Where's the uniformity or standards for TSA?? Why did I have to be subjected to this garbage on the way home?? This is why I despise flying. It makes no sense to me. This ruined what was a great vacation."
Pros: "Flight was on time and arrived a little early."
Cons: "I was seated next to a very large man (6’5” he said) and had no room in my seat. Thankfully the seats in front of us were empty and the flight attendant moved him."
Pros: "Able to watch a movie, even though can't finished it."
Cons: "LATE DEPARTURE, LATE ARRIVAL IN ATLANTA. Good thing I brought some snacks. My seat was changed to the window (I hated it) instead of aisle as I pickedbefore when I checked in in Amsterdam. I should buy Virgin Air ticket for my round trip ATL-Ams vv, saved me about $250, if I knew it would be late"
Pros: "The inflight entertainment options were nice, I enjoyed the flight status option, and the USB port was very helpful."
Cons: "Three hour delay due to wiring issues, cramped seating that made it impossible to get even the most basic of maps, and our flight attendant was upset that we didn't notify them that we were vegans in advance. We didn't know that they had vegan options, and weren't upset about not eating the in-flight meals. She was much more upset about it than we were and it made me uncomfortable refusing the food that I knew I couldn't eat. Other passengers even asked us if we had eaten anything. It was almost embarrassing."
Pros: "The nice staff and entertainment options."
Cons: "I usually fly delta and have a great experience - unfortunately my flight from Detroit to Seattle was not. To start off, i was flying with two other people and we were not able to get seats together, and the whole seating process with delta is really difficult even when I had called weeks in advance to see if they could try and seat us together. I understand with main cabin tickets you can only choose your seat as you check in, but it would be nice to be able to request seating with a person/group you are flying with. I was placed in the very back row of a busy flight, and noticed that the horrible smell from the bathrooms which made it unpleasant. As said above, I normally have a pleasant experience.. but being a delta sky member I feel as though i do not really receive any differences as to a non-member. I hope this review helps for the next customers! Thank you."
Pros: "Flew premium economy/delta comfort + and was a great flying experience. A taste of business without the $3000+ ticket price. Food was excellent, a huge step above economy. Extra comfort with wider seats. And priority boarding as well. This was more like premium economy that you get with European airlines. For long haul flights, well worth the cost. Flight was delayed 2 hours, but Delta had their own special route in Shanghai airport to bypass a lot of the crowds either transferring or checking in for fight. I wouldn’t have made my connecting flight if they hadn’t. Plus my checked bags went straight thru to my final destination in china,n instead of having to pick up and re-check them in Shanghai."
Cons: "2-hour delay causes me to almost miss my connection. I know some passengers had to be transferred to different flights which they almost missed."
Pros: "The Delta Help Desk at the airport was actually pretty helpful for the times I had to use them."
Cons: "Flight was delayed....3 times(more?) from late at night to early morning the next day. Delta Help Desk rescheduled me and got me a room at Howard Johnson’s for the night. Called HoJo’s to confirm they had non-smoking rooms available. Got on the hotel’s shuttle bus and the driver announced that HoJo was full and all voucher holders would go to Rodeway Inn but those without vouchers would go to HoJo....huh!?? Called HoJo and the same person I’d spoken to 20 mins prior said it was correct, that Rodeway was a sister property. The Rodeway Inn Metro Airport is pretty disgusting. This is my opinion after coming from remote Mexico and extensive travel in Africa. It should be torn down. Delta/HoJo should not send customers there."
Pros: "everything was perfect. Even though our flight was international the delta airline app allowed us to complete check in process without major delays. - 5 star in flight service and flight attendant personnel"
Cons: "I liked everything"
Pros: "Love the built in tv’s with free entertainment."
Cons: "The plane got delayed on the runway and the shut the engines off so the plane got super hot, but even after we got up in the air it never cooled down. Normally I’m freezing on flights, but I just sat sweating this whole flight. It was terrible."
Pros: "The seats had plenty of leg room and the crew was was very kind."
Cons: "My seat was uncomfortable and I was seated in the only row of the aircraft without entertainment for a four hour flight. Then on top of that the passenger next to me removed his shoes and you could smell his feet from a mile away but the flight attendants never requested for him to replace his shoes."
Pros: "Swift travel!"
Pros: "Even though we were in the very back row, we did not experience a foul smell from the restrooms. This was a very nice relief. It is bad enough that the seats don't recline and there is no window in the very back row but prior experience with the added nausea of foul restroom order has been a serious insult to injury. In this case there was really minimal odor. Also since we are traveling as a family we are very happy that we were seated together. We have experienced the past that sometimes our seats will be fragmented and that creates major challenges when you are traveling with young children. However on this particular flight the ride was rough during both takeoff and landing, a lot of side to side shimmy. Also the cabin pressure varied quite a bit during landing causing all the kids to complain about some discomfort in their ears."
Cons: "When I bought my ticket last Nov , I paid extra to select seats, only to discover no aisle seats available for the 15 hour flight from LAX to Guanghzou. I tried many times to call CSA LA office using toll free and regular number, but could never speak to a human. Last November 7 I missed my flight home due to the Thai King's motorcade causing the road I was on to be closed for more one hour. I arrived at the CNXairport nearly one hour before the scheduled departure time, only to find CSA check in counters already closed. CSA Bangkok made me pay for a one way ticket home on Nov 8 even though all 3 flights were not full. I arrived well I'm advance and checked in. CSA began boarding 30 minutes before the time shown on my boarding pass and closed the aircraft doors shortly aftethe boarding time listed. No wonder I missed my Nov 7 flight! I wrote CSA LA a letter including the receipt for the one way ticket and requested a refund or at least a reply or home call. I never received a reply. I have flown CSA/Delta from Detroit, MI to Chiang Mai, Thailand 5 or 6 times in the last 3 years. It seems they don't care about customer loyalty. In the future CSA will not be my first choice and I will pay somewhat more to fly another airline."
Pros: "It got me home, eventually."
Cons: "Poor communication, a 6 hour delay followed by a 7 hour layover (during which we had to sleep on an airport floor because Delta couldn't offer us any hotel vouchers). Gate agents disappeared after 7pm becuase they were due to be done with their shifts when our flight was originally supposed to leave at 6 pm. It felt like we were trapped in the movie The Terminal. Oh! And our bag was misrouted, because that was just how things went those 2 days. All in all a 6 hour trip turned into 18 hours. I could have driven home in that amount of time!"
Cons: "Sat on the plane on the tarmac for over an hour in the cold..."
Cons: "Flights on time"
Pros: "Boarding was quick. Staff and crew were friendly. Everything went well despite the 30 min delay we had on the runway. They gave us snacks and we ended up still arriving on time."
Cons: "Layover"
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."
Pros: "Plane was clean, attendants were friendly, and food was fine."
Cons: "I had a flight from Detroit to Montreal. Tried to check in and DTW was not a choice on the westjet website and so I physically could not check in. I realized the flight was technically operated not by WestJet, but Gojet. Went to Gojet's website and was told that Delta took care of all of their ticketing and such. Went to Delta's website, entered my ticket number and card number but I was not in the system as I was given all WestJet info (not Delta's). Luckily the baggage check in people figured it all out."
Pros: "What I liked: Sky Priority privilege came with separate luggage check-in queues and early boarding"
Cons: "What I disliked: Seats were too small No beverages or snacks offered No USB or power outlets available Three different groups board before Delta Comfort (e.g. those needing more time, travelers with children, first/business class) Didn't see the value compared to a less expensive main cabin ticket"
Cons: "Completely threw our afternoon plans and next day on their head because of the flight delays. Not cool."
Pros: "Flight attendants were competent."
Cons: "Air conditioning was extremely noisy."
Cons: "I paid for the upgrade to Delta Comfort Plus for an aisle seat & for some reason they reassigned our seats and I got Putin a middle seat. It was not what I paid for and it was very uncomfortable. If people pay to upgrade to specific seats we should. It be reassigned to whatever seat they want to put us in."
Cons: "Nice"
Cons: "I bought WiFi for my iPhone on the flight and could barely use it because it kept kicking me off and was super slow."
Cons: "I think boarding from rear would facilitate faster boarding And eliminate people blocking Aisle ( standing in aisle and digging In their carryons preventing people From finding their seats further down the aisle. Also people with a connecting flight Pressed for time on their next flight Departure...Should be allowed to deplane first..so they don't miss their next flight."
Pros: "Flight attendants were amazing. Definitely some of the best I've ever encountered."
Cons: "Crew at the desk were rude. They also enacted policies that I'd never seen before about gate checking, and implied I was crazy when I noted how unusual it was. I literally came off a previous AA flight with the previous policy and they said I was confusing them with AE."
Cons: "The AA app broke"
Pros: "Comfortable seats & fast boarding"
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "Landing"
Cons: "As always, the crew was friendly, professional and accommodating."
Cons: "O prematurely had to check my carry on when there was room to bring it on board with me"
Cons: "Felt good to be home after almost 4 hours delayed."
Cons: "No delay Ability to connect wireless headphones"
Pros: "Great crew and service"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 3 hours. They didn't tell us it was delayed until 2 hours before the flight, by which time we were already at the airport. They first delayed it 1 1/2 hours and then another 30 minutes every half hour. The airline/crew never even acknowledged the delay or apologized for it."
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."
Cons: "If we were able to have made the flight"
Pros: "Th flight was a few minutes late boarding but we landed on time. It was a nice smooth flight!"
Cons: "My A/A flight, which was scheduled to get in after midnight, was delayed by over an hour with multiple gate changes."
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: "Nothing"
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 :("
Pros: "Perfect"
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"
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: "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: "They were able to arrange for a seat for my daughter who was technically a lap child. The crew were courteous and helpful. The flight arrived early."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "our flight were on time. Staff was very helpful, I walk with aid of a cane."

Cons: "Not much to dislike."

Pros: "Everything was on time"
Cons: "Not enough room between seats"
Pros: "The least service I have seen among all the airlines I have traveled so far"
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: "Nothing"
Cons: "Read my review of my denver to dallas amd youll understand.."
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: "Far too crowded"
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: "Timelines"
Cons: "Turbulence, not there fault"
Cons: "Chaotic boarding Multiple delays Unfriendly ground staff"
Cons: "Flight was canceled with no option to leave until the next day"
Cons: "Typical American Airlines delays...."
Pros: "The pilot got us home to Detroit!"

Cons: "Free soft drinks."
Cons: "Baggage claim took one hour"

Cons: "Was a great flight. Friendly staff, fair amount of space to be comfortable. Overall very nice"
Pros: "Crew was helpful and friendly"
Cons: "Size of seats, cleanliness of cabin, nickel & dime every little thing. Would have preferred a blanket price that was fair & including paint of seats.there is a big difference flying on Delta, Spirit, and othe airlines. We were not impressed. Basically it was a bus that carried us to our destination."
Pros: "Low fate was attractive"
Cons: "Did not know up front about higher bag fees, seat selection fees, no access to customer service without pulling teeth and super long wait. Also a few to have them help you. An hour late leaving DTW, made up time in air only to sit on tarmac on MCO for a gate. Overhead announcement said reason we could not move was people were not in seats... not at all true after they announced to sit, everyone sat... no further explanation... here we still sit"
Pros: "It was a smooth and nice flight. Even though the plane was full, the attendants was able to make sure everyone had a cup of water. The flight was a little delayed for departure but made up the time for arrival it felt."
Cons: "No free snacks or soft drinks."
Pros: "The chairs were very uncomfortable."
Pros: "Just glad to be home!"
Cons: "Seats were not comfortable and do not feel with all money spent on seat and luggage that I should also have to pay for water."
Pros: "Standard no-frills flight. Seats had more spaces between them compared to those on Spirit airline. No food or entertainment provided."
Cons: "Flight delayed by almost 45 mins"
Pros: "Boarding was quick! Great pilot very smooth ride and landing."
Cons: "I would have liked to be offered water on the flight instead of only items for purchase."
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."
Pros: "operated by miami international that may have made all the difference even got free beverage and tiny pack of pretzels"
Pros: "No comment on food or entertainment"
Cons: "Delayed and delayed. Almost three hours"
Pros: "Personnel were all friendly and helpful Seats were comfortable with plenty of leg room Very good value for the mobey"
Cons: "Website was difficult to navigate for pre pay on your baggage and for choosing your flight. Return flight was about 45 minutes late on departure But those things do happen so not really a big deal."
Pros: "The crew was very nice"
Cons: "There was no entertainment so that was no star. The flight did not board for approx an hour."
Pros: "Blaa!a bla blaaaa"
Pros: "The trip was cancelled due to Hurricane Matthew, but the refund process was quick and easy. Received the refund in 2 days."
Pros: "Checking in , no machine involved."
Cons: "Seats don't recline. No free soda. Excessive baggage fees. Charge for seat assignment."
Pros: "I Was given a seat by the emergency door. I'm 6'3" so that was really appreciated. friendly crew,nice flight and we arrived 15 minutes ahead of schedule."
Cons: "I was unable to print my boarding pass at the airport. I only had a carry-on, but had to stand in a long line that only had one agent working."
Pros: "I enjoyed how easy it was to board the plane, the crew was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "I wish they would get Wi-Fi on the plane so you can use your electronics to help pass time. Also more of a variety on the menu"
Pros: "Efficiency, dependability"
Cons: "The plane smelled awful. It was old. The seats were way to upright and uncomfortable. This made many people recline. This encroaches on the small amount of space of the person behind."
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: "nothing, the service was terrible all around for frontier airlines."
Cons: "The airline had a hidden Carry On Luggage Charge that blindsided me. The combined cost of taking a carry on cost over half the amount of my roundtrip airfare for three people. Other airlines provide complimentary carry ons as a service to their customers. On top of this the flight was delayed by more than six hours and we were not offered any sort of refreshments on the flight free of charge to compensate for the large delay and overall made the experience poor. I will never fly with frontier again and would neither recommend the company to my clients or friends. I demand a refund on the charge of my carry on luggage as that was a shady business practice and poor service by frontier airlines for also delaying my flight."
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: "crew was great ,will fly again with frontier"
Pros: "The friendly flight attendants, the flight was smooth, the landing and deboarding was a breeze... it has been sometime since I've flown, and thanks to frontiers cheap flight cost along side the great service received I will be booking again!!"
Cons: "Wasn't anything I can think of, one thing though would be I wish they had one free carry on allowance. Other then that I have nothing negative to say."
Cons: "Stewart was not very friendly"
Pros: "Rough flight but early to Orlando!"
Pros: "All of the counter people and crew were very friendly. The plane was new and very clean. The flight arrived ahead of schedule. It is true that we did not get free drinks but nothing is free. The price was great and I was well treated. I would certainly fly Frontier again."
Pros: "Everyone was extremely friendly and helpful!!!"
Pros: "Attendants were pleasant. Flight was on time."
Cons: "Charges for selecting a seat and all bags other than a personal item."
Pros: "The crew members were very nice and the entire flight was fine.. baggage arrived quickly. No problems with anything."
Cons: "Hate having to pay more for seat selection, baggage and refreshments. Will never fly frontier again for these reasons."
Cons: "Cancelled my flight and lost a day with my son."
Pros: "None specific"
Cons: "Unremarkable"
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: "Cramed in like cattle cheap flimsy seats.where did the fun of flying go?"
Cons: "Its all about money"
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."
Cons: "It took over an hour to retrieve checked luggage."
Cons: "They lost my bags"
Pros: "took off early and arrived early to destination"
Cons: "what i stated and flight very rough"
Cons: "The bags took over half an hour to arrive at the baggage claim belt and there were three flights claiming their baggage from the same carousel."
Pros: "Fast boarding, comfortable seats (didn't feel crammed in), staff were very nice seemed to like their jobs, and affordable."
Cons: "N/a"
Pros: "Highly skilled pilots. Great job flying through storm on flight to Florida and very smooth landing and flight on the way back to Detroit. Clean plane and seemed in great shape. Flight crew very nice and friendly."
Pros: "Crew was nice. Flight was on time!"
Cons: "Leg room"
Pros: "Spirit upgraded from their 1904 planes and finally came into the 21st century with a new plane. Good room, smooth flight, great attendants."
Cons: "Y’all still don’t have TVs or WiFi."
Pros: "I liked getting off the plane and leaving those incompetent employees behind."
Cons: "First, I was charged an extra $55 for an overweight bag when I’d already paid $30 to check it in the first place. Then, every employee I encountered acted like a miserably underpaid two year old who was forced to be there. Slight advice: if you didn’t make the price of the flights so “cheap,” you wouldn’t have to overcharge for any and everything else related to the stupid flight. The incompetent, unpleasant employees just added insult to injury. THE worst airline I’ve ever had the displeasure of flying with."
Pros: "It was timely and smooth."
Cons: "Not a big deal at all - but the long line to sfand at a kiosk just to get a luggage tag was a new experience."
Cons: "I didn't like the shady way Spirit goes about explaining the baggage fees and seat fees and $45 for a carry on in my opinion is GOUGING!!!!!!!"
Pros: "I almost missed my flight because a couple different gates were lined up together but some one came through a few times asking if anyone was going to Detroit. That saved me from realizing I was supposed to stay in that long line."
Cons: "My luggage got totally trashed on my flight to Denver. Either their airport or Detroit’s. Do I have insurance that covers new luggage I needed to buy?"
Pros: "Boarding process."
Cons: "Hidden fees of Spirit Airlines"
Pros: "they put me on a delta flight (5hrs later)"
Cons: "the flight was canceled and the delta flight was delayed"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for over an hour but was never notified of how long of a delay or a new gate change until after we were already suppose to be airborne."
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: "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: "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: "Nice big seats!"
Cons: "No free drink (including water)"
Pros: "Price"
Cons: "Tiny tray table"
Cons: "it was awful - I can't believe how narrow the rows are. I'm 5'5" and my knees touched the seat in front of me. A third of my personal item (a backpack) stuck out from below the seat in front of me. I've never been more uncomfortable on a plane. But it was cheap, so...worth it?"
Pros: "The bag and carry on luggage took forever to get. The prices were too high."
Cons: "Even though the airline is cheaper than most, be causios for extra charges!!!!! Double than other airlines on baggage! If you have a bag to check in, read their prices before you book a flight!"
Cons: "I flew spirit to Detroit last week, and after getting delayed 18 hours I finally made it. Now, currently sitting at the airport, my spirit flight home to Denver has been canceled at least 10 minutes after we were suppose to have boarded. I have been at the airport for 5 hours and have been yelled at to stay back from the counter and not to ask questions or else we would just be delaying the process. After about 2.5 hours of waiting, we finally got a number to call to re-book, which still took over an hour. This has been THE WORST airline experience I have ever had. If I were representing this airline I would be ashamed of the horrible service it provides. I genuinely believe I deserve a full refund for my flight (even if it was re-booked)... not just given an apology voucher because I promise I will never fly spirit again."
Cons: "Every thing"
Pros: "I liked the VFW lounge and the free amenities for us veterans"
Cons: "Everything els, horrible everything..will never fly Spirit again"
Pros: "Other than the four hour delay? Nothing, nothing at all."
Cons: "Ditto"
Pros: "On time and staff very accommodating"
Cons: "No much leg room"
Cons: "No entertainment. The trays are way ti small."
Pros: "n/a"
Cons: "Don't let the cheap flight fool you, at every turn there are additional costs. Even a carry on. ag costs at the least 45 bucks if you do it before hand. At the gate, it cost 100 bucks to CARRY ON a bag. Sitting in the airport for 5 hours was fun too. :/"
Pros: "The seats were awesome and there were 20 seats available so I got to pick any seat."
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: "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."
Pros: "Nothing"
Pros: "O"
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."
Pros: "Nothing"
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"
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: "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."
