Cons: "The trip from Atlanta Georgia to Austin Texas was TERRIBLE!! The delta staff working the counter in Atlanta were rude, I was actually forced to get a complete stranger to help me with my wheelchair because there was no staff to help me. I was yelled at by delta staff. It was a horrible experience."
Pros: "The plane was nice and the entertainment on the flight was great! Flight crew very friendly."
Cons: "Our plane was delayed multiple times and we were not provided an explanation as to why. For as expensive as this fare was the fact that Delta was at fault for the delay and did not offer any compensation for that delay is frustrating. A few extra free snacks doesn’t cut it."
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "In flight movies would be nice . Tight seats for 6.3 huy"
Pros: "The female crew were really nice to my 3 year old daughter and made her feel at ease on the flight. Hi"

Pros: "Food and drinks were great"
Cons: "Would have liked being able to select a window seat."
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "When all overhead bins were full, they should have allowed those who didn’t need to check their carry on to board the plane before those who needed to check their carry on. Very unorganized at gate."
Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "Stuck at landing. For over 20+ minutes"
Cons: "CheezIts were too salty. We had to sit on NO tarmac for over 10 minutes because a plane was stuck at our gate...several other gates empty - what's up?"
Pros: "The crew was attentive."
Cons: "Games on the tv were okay. Tetris would be a nice addition."
Pros: "The short duration of the flight and punctual arrival. Better seating with more leg space in Airbus than in the horrible Boeing 467- 400."
Cons: "No headsets distributed so I couldn't listen to film program. Crew rather impersonal. I'm dreaming of an airline that uses functioni g loudspeakers during boarding. Nobody understands acoustically which zone is being boarded ( not only a Delta issue)."
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Wi-Fi not working or hard to get to work. Flight was delayed by an hour and service was very rushed."

Pros: "Easy transition through customs."
Cons: "I was good with the flight, my friend had some allergy problems with the ac."
Pros: "Not crowded?"
Cons: "It's a 6A flight from RNO to SLC meaning you are up really early to get to the airport, checkin and wait. There's no Delta lounge, so you're stuck trying to find something to eat and somewhere to sit well before our flight. The exit row seating does help, but the seats didn't recline making it a bit more uncomfortable."
Pros: "Crew was kind and helpful. Snacks were great!"
Pros: "Great flight . Even got here early"
Pros: "The outbound crew was terrific. The flight itself was fine. We even arrived early."
Cons: "Upon deplaning in Cancun, ALL passengers are put on a bus and driven far away from the terminals to an arrivals area. Those of us with connecting flights are royally f*cked at that point, especially if your connection is short, as mine was. The so-called shuttle to the departure terminals, which are entire kilometers away, was to arrive in like half an hour. HALF AN HOUR. Who has this time to spare?? The alternative to the shuttle is paying a taxi that charges a hefty fare--and God help you if you don't have cash. The departures terminal was swamped and only thru begging assistance and line cuts did I make my connection...and then only by the skin of my teeth. It was a complete nightmare."
Pros: "Really helpful staff, clean plane, attentive and easy boardiing"
Cons: "The check in was a bit confusing at the airport."
Cons: "Paid first class. Got served after people in coach."
Pros: "New aircraft A320"
Cons: "1 hour flight delay"
Cons: "Flight was delayed nearly 2 hours without any compensation to the passengers. I frequently fly jet blue and whenever they are that delayed not weather related the staff frequently gives the passengers a complimentary cocktail. Also your boarding process makes little sepnse to me why board from the front of the plane more sensible to board back to front"
Pros: "The gate person was very accommodating"
Cons: "It was over 2hrs late due to mechanical problems. Seems to be the norm."
Pros: "It wasn’t bad or good."
Cons: "Long delay due to maintenance of oxygen masks issue. Why hadn't this been taken care of with preventive maintenance?"
Pros: "The staff are fun and friendly. One of the hostesses stepped into the vacant seat where I was sitting and stepped back further when people where pushing by. We were almost cheek to cheek. The closest I've come to a cute bum in years."
Cons: "The gratis food offering isn't healthy - those bread pretzels, versus the almond & tomato juice I had on the next flight, with ...can't remember the name."
Cons: "Seating was tight"
Pros: "Comfortable seats and incredible kind staff"
Cons: "No food, drinks, or entertainment. But it was an extremely short flight."
Pros: "They ran out of food on the plane"
Pros: "Personnel and crew handled the problem in a professional manner doing everything in their power to make the best of a bad situation. Another plane was provided within a reasonable time frame."
Cons: "Four hour delay. Boarded and then being told after 40 minutes that the problem was not fixable."
Cons: "No space."
Pros: "When our flight was delayed by four hours they gave us snacks at the gate. No one offered to reschedule."
Cons: "The 45 minute wait in the Sky Priority lane to drop off baggage. The flight was delayed because of weather and then their scheduling system crashed. Had to wait for a pilot. When we finally boarded at 5 we got peanuts in first class. That was worth the mileage upgrade. Upon landing there was a 1/2 wait on the tarmac to get a gate. That same plane, upon taking off back to DTW blew a tire upon take-off, had to do an emergency landing and everyone had to spend the night in NOLA after being delayed all day."
Pros: "We liked the personalized tv screens on the back of each chair that allowed us to watch free movies. The flight crew was very nice as well."
Cons: "We arrived at the gate early only to find out that they had changed our flight without telling us so we were almost an hour extra wait before leaving Vegas. Then that flight was delayed by about 30 minutes with no warning, just late!"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The delays, we change to gate three times, Delta never told us why the changes or announce them. If it wouldn't be for Trippet Pro, where I got notices, I would not have known about gate changes."
Cons: "I paid additional money for 3 seats together, when I got to check in I was told I cannot do that. I had to sit separately from my children. I was sat next to an obese man. I kindly asked the flight attendant if I can take empty seat across the aisle from me and was told no without a reason. I thought we were doing social distance ,but apparently not. As for there earlier claim of no 3 seats available next to each other .. it was obviously a lie because the seats just across from me where empty. I hope not to fly on American Airlines again."
Cons: "Almost 2 hr delay - put fuel in a wrong tank."
Cons: "They claim to be cleaning these planes but I find that hard to believe when there is Gum on the window sill. We were also delayed quite a bit in the boarding process. Also I would imagine that during Covid-19 these companies would do a better job of not overbooking flights but all of my flights with American this past weekend were overbooked. Which delayed us even longer as they searched for volunteers to adjust their flights. In today's age of technology the idea that they are still overbooking planes makes no sense to me in the slightest. I will be walking, driving or taking a boat before I fly American Airlines again."
Cons: "Bumped from first class to coach."
Pros: "Crew was very nice."
Cons: "The salad was included two unmentioned items that were unwelcome: bleu cheese and pasta."
Cons: "Everything, especially an AA customer representative. Very rude, inconsiderate, and unprofessional."

Cons: "Paid for upgraded seat with complimentary drinks that I still got charged for."
Cons: "They lost and cant track my baggage. Very poor customer service."
Pros: "The pilot kept us informed and we were transported to a resort. At the end of the day our safety came first."
Cons: "Lost one day."
Cons: "How does a ground crew not know a plane is coming in late. How is there no one here for baggage. It's a joke."

Pros: "Seats were nice, service came pretty quickly considering the size of the plane, boarding went reasonably quick"
Cons: "Started boarding and didn't announce another delay till we're on the aircraft, sitting in the gate for an hour and a half.

Pros: "Attendants are always friendly; always a peaceful travel event"
Pros: "Travel time"

Pros: "Cheap fare"
Cons: "American advertised free TV and movies streamed to your device via a card placed in the seatback pocket and in the flight attendant's announcement. Although the card stated, "This Flight. Free Entertainment..." I was informed that there was, in fact, no such feature."
Pros: "Cabin was clean. Flight attendants were courteous."
Cons: "Their snacks were merely a cookie which was okay, but not what I would have wanted."
Cons: "Middle seat and one of the last ones on. Enough said"
Pros: "Attentiveness of Gate personnel Punta Cana airport and of the flight attendants. The entertainment options were excellent."
Cons: "Lack of variety in food options during flight."
Pros: "pretty comfortable seats"
Cons: "45 minute delay from Punta Cana Flight crew lets passengers switch seats and sit wherever they want. Screaming children were put in the row in front of me, which I know they didn't pay for(and I payed extra for my seat)"
Pros: "Everyone was so helpful. The flight was very quiet and peaceful."
Pros: "I made it safely to my destinations and in a timely manner."

Cons: "Nothing notable."
Pros: "Pilot was very communicative, which was great but plane was 1 hour late and we had a mechanical problem while taxing, pilots fixed it while still on the ground. Not their fault those planes are 35 years old, come on!"
Cons: "Stop flying MD80's, please! 35 year old planes!"
Pros: "Once I managed to get to my connecting terminal which was an adventure in itself, the original plane we were to fly on was having maintenance issues. The ground crew worked quickly to get a different plane and moved us to an adjoining terminal."

Cons: "No usb hookup. No food"
Pros: "On time and direct"
Cons: "Same comment as above"
Pros: "The flight crew was nice and there was no problem with the actual flight. The issue was with the United employees at the check in area."
Cons: "The employees at IAD were grumpy and put off by helping us passengers. The kiosk lines were full so after having waited for a while I went to the actual counter since there we no people in line and the agent chased em back to the kiosk. I felt that that was a very poor reflect of customer service. I expect more from United."
Pros: "The people at the gate and on the plane were nice. But I flew United Airlines not Lufthansa."
Cons: "Really sad that you have to pay extra money to watch the monitors on the back of the headrest for a 2.5 trip. That's crappy. And then there is a point when you're out of the Directv Range. We're paying more for flights and then they have flight waitresses trying to monetize the time you're in the air. And when I was checking in in Berlin this guy was asking me a ton of questions, but didn't ask the next 5 people any questions. When I stared at him he started asking others questions. It's really none of your business why I'm going somewhere or what I'm doing. These terrorist attacks are giving people authority they have no business having."
Pros: "The United Airline staff was very helpful. Our evening flight from another airline was cancelled and we booked the next available United flight departing early the following morning. Recommendations from the staff made our unplanned stay much more comfortable. It was greatly appreciated."
Pros: "in flight entertainment"
Cons: "No where to charge devices"
Pros: "Not much to like..."
Cons: "Once again, your people need to cater to the people that flight. The very first time I flew with United was December 14, 1982. I was 7. As an adult I have either flown with Delta or US Air. I went with United on this trip and I have to say that I am never going back on another United flight."
Pros: "Smooth flight, nice staff, on time"
Cons: "Not enough leg room!!! The new planes cram us in even tighter. Unless you pay more, you suffer. Why should we have to pay more just because we are tall??!! Pocket for book etc is way too small."
Pros: "Left promptly on schedule and arrived on time."
Cons: "Crew cordial but not friendly. Refreshments: I asked for water...flight attendant never asked if I wanted ice and she gave me room temperature water........"
Pros: "Very smooth flight and good seat"
Pros: "Stewardesses were new hires, but still decent with their service."
Cons: "Flight left an hour late with no clear explanatiom, making it really difficult to get home at the time of arrival."

Cons: "Paid a lot more than I did for the same flight via delta with half the amenities. Crew not particularly friendly"
Pros: "Crew was polite and responsive."
Cons: "Flight was extremely delayed because of missing flight crew and/or pilot. Boarding announcements were very hard to follow because of overlapping PA systems at the gate. We sat at the gate for a long time before take off, which was uncomfortable because the seats are cramped for anyone above average height and I could not put my seat back or put my headrest up."
Pros: "We had excellent service on the plane and the new snacks that are handed out was a welcomed addition."
Cons: "TSA held a planned work action to have workers call in sick and my flight left 30 minutes late as at departure time we were missing over 20 passengers who hadn't gotten through TSA yet."
Cons: "My direct flight to New Orleans was canelled forcing me to arrive five hours late for my ride from the airport."
Pros: "flight was mercifully short ..."
Cons: "brand new plane with impossible seating dimensions for any normal humans, even at the upgraded price; crew increasingly more concerned with labor relations and their own dramas than with passengers comfort or experience (perhaps understandable, given management screws put to them, but still unprofessional)."
Pros: "Love the customer service and friendly staff"
Pros: "Free snacks and we arrived 30 mind early"
Pros: "On time!"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "The flight attendants."
Cons: "My two seats were not together and river landing very rough"
Pros: "That flight never happened. A lot of snow"
Cons: "Lies about when we would leave. Next time just be honest about the fact that we didn't have a pilot instead of stringing us along for 9 hours."
Pros: "Comfortable chairs"
Cons: "There are no TV's and there are no snacks"
Cons: "There is delay in both airport for security check ! No more people to do it ! 1 hour waiting in line was very dissappointed"
Pros: "The actual flight was great and the service on the plane was ok even though all they gave was beverage."
Cons: "i didn't like the fact that i got charged taxes and a fee for my luggage. When I purchased the tickets online didn't inform me the airport was going to do this thank god i had a credit card with enough balance to take care of that if not i dont what would of happened to my luggage."
Pros: "Late flight. Slow to board Given middle seat"
Pros: "I like to comfort flight"
Cons: "I don't like the entertainment, I don't whant pay for watch movie in the airplane"
Pros: "Flight attendant on PA had beautiful speaking voice"
Cons: "Turbulence precluded cabin service"
Pros: "Terrible, waited all day for them to tell us they didn't have a plane had nothing to do with weather or anything else. No excuse and no compensation offered. Stranded at the airport that night and no flight offed as replacement. This is not the end of this between united and myself. Won't use them again."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for 8 hours before ultimately being canceled."
Cons: "Worst airline ever"
Pros: "The plane was clean. The food and drink selection was fabulous, although we didn’t get any because the flight was short and turbulent but good to know for next time."
Cons: "Wish I could check in online and have boarding pass sent to phone or print out myself."
Pros: "Literally nothing. Will not fly again."
Cons: "Completely disorganized. Took 30 minutes to check a bag. Nickel and dimed at every turn. Flight crew was borderline annoying. Was not a relaxing flight whatsoever. JUST BAD."
Cons: "Small table trays & uncomfortable seats. You get what you pay for."
Pros: "$50 ticket and $25 bag was the price point that I wanted"
Pros: "That they got me to where I was going with out falling out of the sky."
Cons: "Baggage claim times, accommodations and non-caring attitudes."
Pros: "The friendliness of the flight attendants, as well as the help I received at the check-In desk."
Cons: "The comfort of the seats, I'm 6-4" the room available is tiny for me."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Size of seats"
Pros: "The crew were lovely and seemed to enjoy their jobs."
Cons: "Apparently if you sit in the fourth row, your chair will not recline but the chairs in front of you will. This is extremely uncomfortable. Everything on Frontier flights is extra whuch means you're not really saving any money by using them. These are not budget flights, just uncomfortable ones."
Cons: "Got a cheap flight but little did I know that that would be offset by being nickeled and dimed for seats, bags, and drinks. On top of that th plane was five hours late from its start point and the only information the gate agents would give (with an attitude) was the plane was coming. I called customer service to see if they were offering any restitution for this, and I was told that's not up to him. I will never never never fly frontier ever again."
Cons: "The flight attendants said I was on the plane when I in fact was not and they gave my seat away to someone (had the person act like they were me) now I am stuck in Philly for 2 days"
Pros: "On first off first"
Cons: "Too small of a plane and was charged for my one and only carry on bag which was to standard size"
Pros: "I can tell you what I didn't like. My seat and bags cost more than the flight itself. So no I did not have a good experience and I will never fly Spirit again"
Pros: "They give you free water on the plane. That's it..."
Cons: "First off, our flight was delayed 5 hours. I understand because of weather. No big deal. But when it is supposed to leave at 4:15 and You tell everyone 5:15, and then at 5:15 tell everyone it'll be here at 6:15, then at 6:15 it went to 7:15 and then again 8:15. During this entire time, I kept asking for updates and the staff at Frontier seemed angry so many people kept asking....that's your job. Because of the long wait many people didn't eat dinner, JetBlu decided to get coffee and donuts for all of their passengers (they said it over the loud speaker), Frontier didn't give us anything. When the plane landed at 8:15, the slowness of the workers couldn't have been any worse. Loading the bags slow, cleaning the plane slow. Plane gets here at 8:15 and we don't take off until 9:30. You'd think we would get some type of snack or drink for this horrible wait time right? Water is free on frontier, but nothing else. And they stuck with that. NOTHING FREE! Not even a soda or bag of chips! My friend is 6 foot 4 and I'm not sure how they get away with the nonexistent leg room. His knees were smashed against the chair in front of him the entire time. Funny for me, sucked for him (or anyone tall). He asked to change seats to 1 of the 2 open seats we had seen with more leg room (near the side emergency exit). They said no unless he wants to pay $50 right there. In the middle of the flight. I have no words for it. Customer service was horrible, food was nonexistent, drinks were nonexistent, leg room was nonexistent. And that sums up how I'll never be using frontier ever again. Pay $50 more for a better plane service seriously."
Pros: "Caring crew! The flight was on time and we even arrived slotted early"
Cons: "We were not offered a free cup of water. Even though it was a short flight it would have been appreciated"
Pros: "The cost was low, so it made the return part of my trip easier to pay for."
Cons: "I had not been prepared for how "no frills' your airline is, so I didn't know to expect rigid chairs with no adjustment, and that all items offered in flight were to be paid for. It wasn't a long flight, so I didn't miss not have a snack or drink, but I didn't know any of that in advance. My fault for not checking into it a little more, but it was a whirlwind trip to move my daughter and the travel was Spartan but necessary."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and humorous"
Cons: "Flight attendants made too many unnecessary reminders throughout the flight about buckling seat belts and staying seated when the seatbelt sign is illuminated. It felt like every 5 minutes they were making an announcement making it impossible to get any rest. Passengers were roundly and acted like they had never been on a plane before. Maybe they hadn't and just didn't know any better. But it made the flight unpleasant."
Pros: "The non stop flight was awesome. Just a hour and a half and I was there Also the price was second to none."
Cons: "I don't have anything to complain about. I'm always going to look at Frontiers flight before booking. Wish they flew to more places"
Cons: "the pilot almost crashed the plane"
Cons: "I paid for my flight but when I tried to check in, I had to pay for my seat and carry on for each way. Orange juice costs money on this flight. Seats are half of the size of regular seats and does not recline. It was like sitting in school room chairs for 4 hours and 37 minutes on a full flight. Water is the only thing that you can have without paying. I just didn't understand what I paid for... when I also had to pay for a seat. Was it the cost of fuel on the aircraft? Trays are half of the size of regular tray... custom forms barely fit on top of it. Brace position is not going to do anything to us with those plastic seats in case of emergency."
Cons: "Late flight, disorganized at gate"
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: "Flight cancelled due to weather. No other to help with rebooking or solutions to being stranded in the airport. Calls and emails all fell on death ears. As a Colorado resident I try to fly frontier exclusively, no more. I will never give my money to this failing airline."
Pros: "Every thing on our flight to New Orleans."
Cons: "Three of us boarded at DIA in Denver on Feb 25 on Frontier Airlines for a flight to New Orleans. We each had one piece of carry on luggage that we placed in the compartment above the seats. There was not additional charge for the carry on. We paid only the cost of our airline ticket. HOWEVER on our return flight Feb 28, we told at the New Orleans Frontier desk there would be an extra charge for the exact carry on luggage we had checked in at Denver fours days before. The extra charge was $40.00 for checking or $45.00 if we carried on our luggage. We explained there was no charge for our carry on's in Denver. That didn't help. SO what choice did we have? We didn't make a scene or issue about this extra charge. We merely paid the extra charge and grumbled on the flight home. You can probably guess about our change in attitude -- from a pleasant flight experience to New Orleans to maybe our next flight will not be on Frontier rather another carrier."
Pros: "The flight was late in boarding because the airport was on island time. The reception folks kept saying five more minutes until we board, for like half an hour. I didn't mind but it was funny. A very relaxed airport and staff. I enjoyed it, way better than O'Hare with its rushing hussle bussle endless security line issues."
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Cost of the flight - efficient boarding - delightful crew - on time, even early - convenient time of flight"
Cons: "Cost of baggage fee - the fact that even a soft drink cost money - cost of a regular economy seat"
Cons: "183$ in seating and luggage fees AFTER the base ticket price...I wasn't made aware of these charges until I went to check in for my flight. No leg room. Seats don't recline. Tray table about the size of an iPhone 6. No entertainment. No snacks. All drinks cost money. Rude staff. Just a disaster of an experience. I'll never fly frontier again."
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: "Flight crew was very pleasant both ways, but didn't make the trip worth it with all the negatives."
Cons: "Frontier's electronic tickets don't work at security. The added fees were ridiculous. Paying for a SEAT and a CARRY-ON is outlandish! They even charge for water. Seriously? The new seats are extremely uncomfortable, the armrests are cold metal, and the seats don't recline. They tray tables are about the size of a small romance novel. We felt incredibly duped. I will gladly pay more to fly an alternate airline. I hope to never fly this airline again."
Pros: "A mediocre experience that charged me for every interaction with the airline, including a can of club soda. An obnoxious business model."
Pros: "Great fare.awesome staff.had to wait to load bags.but will fly again"
Cons: "That they did not have enough people to process all the flights " we didn't expect all of you to show up" Allowed four other flights to cut in line to make their flight but when it came to new Orleans had 100 of us not board. 4 hours later, 5 lines and lying to us about the plane turning around They Told us the next flight was 4 days later... not even connections options. At first they did not want to give us refunds either until they called security on one irate small blonde lady and security, afraid of a riot I think, told the airline they needed to resolve the issue."
Cons: "I did not like the rude service i was given... the flight attendees were extremely rude and one of them forgot to give me back my credit card and he couldn't find it initially."
Pros: "On time bag claim fast comfortable seat for short flight"
Cons: "Baggage drop off line at 5am ridiculous"
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: "Flight was delayed three hours with no compensation for time. It would've been nice to receive a voucher for dinner considering time. Also, attempting to sleep on a flight is always difficult but turning on the lights to serve beverages was a bit much. Dim lighting would be a better option."
Cons: "I say the exact same "I should have just flown delta" story EVERY TIME I go with a cheap airline. Flight was delayed from 5pm to 6pm, then to 11:30pm, then 1:30am. So I had to buy a stupid expensive last minute ticket on Delta (Frontier doesn't work with other airlines, to rebook flights or even find your luggage) then drive two hours from the airport to see my family for the holidays.. Then take a 2 hour trip back to the airport the next day to pick up my luggage, which Frontier wouldn't deliver to me because I "voluntarily separated" from them. I suppose that's technically true, but I think there's an argument there that Frontier's complete lack of competency forced to me do it."
Cons: "$1:99 soda realy"
Cons: "the seats"
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: "boarding fine flight good"
Cons: "have to buy food on board , and only snacks available to buy, sandwiches would be better."
Cons: "Delays costed me tons of cash!"
Pros: "Best priced flights of anyone"
Cons: "SW airlines does do a better job wit incentives like first 2 bags free under 50lbs., complimentary drink & snack, and no charge for first carry-on. I'd honestly make Frontier my ONLY carrier if they addressed the first bag free, no carry-on fee and free water/drink & snack."
Cons: "If you think you'll be saving money by booking through frontier, think again. They charge you extra in every way they possibly can--including seat arrangements and carry-on bags that end up being even more expensive than checked bags. They tell you everything is cheaper when being set up through their website, but their site crashes like crazy and people on the phone are also very unhelpful. Our flight was delayed for 3 hours and the maintenance crew was very unhelpful in relaying information to the crew. We never got a perfectly clear answer on what the actual problem was."
Pros: "People were friendly."
Cons: "Charging for all of these things that should be free is ridiculous. I don't want to ever again fly Frontier."
Pros: "Process was easy"
Cons: "Having to pay for a carry on bag, my seat, beverages, and snacks!"
Cons: "Going from Philly to the Dominican republic. We sat on the tarmac for 2 hours while the plane was maintained. One the way back I checked to make sure the plane was on time. Got to the airport (2 hours early) and the plane was delayed 2 hours and 40 minutes. I understand with travel there will be delays...but not 2 hours on the flight down and almost 3 hours on the return flight : ("
Pros: "Crew and staff at airport more friendly and helpful"
Cons: "They don't take cash on the flight and I was not aware of this."
Pros: "The flight was not delayed, in fact it left early! Fast boarding."
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable. It was a clear day without many clouds, but somehow the pilots on both of my flights weren't able to hold the planes steady during the takeoffs, climbing to altitude, and approaches for landings. The planes were wobbling a lot---like they were no longer on smooth automatic pilot."
Pros: "The staff was courteous and happy. Smiling and speaking to passengers. No carry on baggage fee. I have been flying frequently over the last couple years and it was the only staff that made me feel like customer service matters."
Cons: "A fee for water and soda."
Cons: "First, they charged 50$ (!!!) for each check in bag while most airlines charge 25$. That is double! And for a domestic flight!! To top that, no one at the check in counter had told us that skateboards are not allowed on board (even though they saw us with it). We arrived at the gate, about to board the flight and a second before getting on the plane, we were told that we could not go on with the skate board. All this is while we see people take in strollers that are far bigger than a simple board with wheels. They claimed that it's a "weapon". It is as much a weapon as a stroller. They made us pay additional 65$ (!!!) just to throw it inthe bells with no wrapping or bag, and to sign a liability release so if it will break we wouldn't be able to sue. We felt completely ripped off! The only other option according to them was to pack it and board the next flight (of course this was a non- refundable flight). To top everything off- the airplane was old, they sold one seat to oversized people in a way that it was impossible to have your iwnspace and they didn't even serve water in a 3.5 hiur flight. It was a horrible experience and we wouldn't recommend spirit airlines to anyone ever. We ended up paying an extra 165$!!!"
Pros: "They staff was very nice and entertaining"
Cons: "I will never fly spirit airlines again due to all the hidden fees!"
Pros: "Flight crew was nice from LAX to MSY"
Cons: "small seats, hidden baggage fees through priceline"
Cons: "$50 per bag Tired dirty seats Attendants playing cards at front of plane"
Cons: "The airline overbooked, gave my seat away, and left me stranded for a day without my luggage. Was not aware before buying the flight that you must pay for all baggage. Poorly run and not accommodating."
Pros: "I liked that the flight was a very good price."
Cons: "What I didn't like is that after I bought the ticket, I learned that I had to pay for a seat, I had to pay for checked bags of course, and I had to pay for carry on bags. What!?! About $150 for one checked and one carry on both ways.....which means I didn't really save any money on this "cheaper" flight. One more kicker is that I travel using my TSA number and SPIRIT airlines doesn't have an agreement with the TSA for their travelers to use pre-check. Wow. i wished someone had pointed out all the extra fares and fees"
Cons: "Not comfortable at all...no space for bags...second time having a bad experience won't be a third"
Cons: "The flight was canceled. the reason provided was the weather but other airline didnot cancel. They still flew..."
Pros: "I thought the seats were decent, and the aisle is wider than most."
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that only one bathroom was working. The price for luggage is OUTRAGEOUS. There was pretty much no service from the flight attendants. This was the first time I've flown with Spirit and it will be the last. I should have known better than to not book with Delta or Southwest. Even though you lure customers in with your initial low price but than you nickel and dime the customers to death with fees for everything and the extreme high cost for luggage, that your initial ticket price became higher than the other two carriers initial price. Shame on you!"
Pros: "Same flight. The crew was excellent, friendly, attentive and very helpful."
Cons: "No even a free cracker and glass of water."
Cons: "You have to pay for EVERYTHING. No point in saving on the front end when it'll be more expensive after anyway"
Pros: "The flight was good. I wish there had been a little more room but I will definitely fuse Spirit again if the flight is the right price"
Cons: "the fact that the misleading low cost led to me paying more than i would have in baggage costs, seat costs, and it came to way more than i expected to pay. couldve booked first class on american and paid less. Shameful ."
Pros: "Good price & flight times"
Cons: "No reclining seats. Charge for carry ons"
Pros: "I liked the flight crew. Very courteous and professional."
Cons: "I disliked the VERY UNPROFESSIONAL gate crew. I've flow Spirit several times using the same luggage. This particular time, the New Orleans Gate agents were very confrontational, rude, and lacked general customer service skills."
Pros: "It was the same crew from the ATL - Houston flight. Very friendly, great folks."
Cons: "We never made it to New Orleans. Because of weather we circled until we ran out of fuel and went back to Houston. Not only was it difficult to get a refund from customer service (I still have not received credit to my account), but the next flight to NOLA wasn't until after the wedding that was my whole purpose in taking this trip. So I had to rent a car and drive overnight. I would have felt a lot better about my experience if I had received a prompt refund or arrangements for rental car / hotel were offered in exchange for my cancellation. Instead, I had to go out of pocket. You can't control the weather, but then again neither can I. You CAN control your cancelled flight policies and offer either immediate refunds or accommodations until the next flight."
Pros: "The flight attendant was outgoing and funny"
Cons: "That u didn't at least get a can of soda during the flight"
Pros: "Smooth boarding and deplaning process - no hassle with preprinted boarding pass. See rating: there should be a N/A for food and entertainment. Wasn't expecting either."
Cons: "Legroom is tight but is OK with an aisle or window seat."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled. They did not assist in getting me there. I had to take care of it myself through another airline."
Pros: "It arrived on time"
Cons: "They nickel and dime you to death carry on $55 for a little bag $50 if you put it in the plane $10 to pick your seat if it was available"
Pros: "Flight was on time and arrived earlier than scheduled. would definitely fly Spirit again!"
Pros: "Not thing"
Pros: "Friendly staff. Uptodate airplane."
Cons: "Expensive baggage fee. No complimentary. Flight delays."
Cons: "Rude gate agent. Lost luggage."
Pros: "Pilot and flight attendants were funny and understanding."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for one hour because the plane had too much fuel so they wouldn't load anyone's checked bags. They boarded half of us, then made that announcement, then waited 20 minutes, then deplaned that half, waiting 20 more minutes, and then boarded everyone again who still wanted to go without their checked bags."
Pros: "The crew were as polite as possible considering they were uniformed about what the company's decisions were and the passengers taking out their frustrations on the only people they could actually talk to."
Cons: "This was the worst management of flight rescheduling I've ever experienced. Canceling and reassigning passengers due to poor weather is one thing but not being prepared to handle these transfers is just a reflection of poor organization and business practice. Never again will I be flying Spirit."
Pros: "On the way to mke they charged us 200$ for carry ons. On the way back, they cancelled our flight and refused to put us on another until 3 days later. They refunded us $350 and we had to pay another $500 to book another flight home. Horrible customer service. Kayak shoukd not work with them."
Pros: "This is by far the worst airline I've ever flown. I've flown several budget airlines throughout the world, and none of them nickel and dime you like spirit. Also, because it is such a discounted airline, the flight attendants and the gate Crew don't really seem to care about your comfort. The cost of food is ridiculous as is any in-flight entertainment. Not worth it unless you're only staying somewhere for 2 to 3 days and you don't have any bags to check."
Cons: "Got canceled last minute .. First flight cancelled ever and never will try to fly spirit again"
Pros: "Great safe and professional service in all areas. On Time with bad weather that was cancelling numerous flights into and out of Ohare."
Cons: "The original outgoing online flight checking in process was difficult to navigate threw. This return flight online check in was great."
Pros: "Flight attendants Daniel, and Shancy were the best, and most friendly I have ever encountered."
Pros: "The comfort and service"
Cons: "2 hours delay again"
Pros: "If the flight goes to a country like Dominican republic that spikes Spanish language someone from the crew need to talk Spanish language for safety reasons. If not the crew need to understand that people do not understand what they are saying, but do understand when your saying the F word. Crew need to be more patient with old people they just don't know."
Cons: "Had I known of the hidden fees, I never would have booked. From now on, I will skip past Spirit Airlines when searching for a flight."
Pros: "The ticket cost is low."
Cons: "Spirit is a garbage airline."
Cons: "The flight leaving Vegas was an 1.5 hours delayed which put me in NoLa at 2am."
Pros: "Nothing at all. It was a horrible experience as I am relating in the other column. Would never recommend them to anyone and warn others of our bad experience."
Cons: "Horrible customer service at check-in, they refused to do anything to help us. Our plane was still there for 45min but they wouldn't let us on said we were five mins to late to check in. On top of all this they couldn't get us on a flight for TWO days and would not refund our money or help us get a flight on any other airline, said the were not affiliated with any of the other airlines. We had wait in the airport for 4 hrs and pay $500.00 to get seats on a Delta flight. Needless to say I will never use Spirit again and will tell others of our experience."
Pros: "Not enjoyable at all"
Pros: "Always enjoy flying spirit. With budget airlines what I'm looking for is a cheap price and on time flights. Spirit fulfilled both."
Pros: "Generally just felt cheap and pushy."
Cons: "Seat selection procedure, boarding, 90% of the experience."
Cons: "The flight was very long. That is not Spirit's fault through."
Pros: "Return flight had very UNconfortable seating ."
Cons: "The website is very difficult to use. Sometimes it would work and sometimes it wouldn't. I spent over an hour just trying to check in and print boarding passes online because the website was so glitchy. Great idea to have stuff done ahead of time online but ensure that the website is top notch if you are going to push that so much."
Cons: "Terribly uncomfortable seats. Ridiculous baggage charges. No complimentary water in the plane??? I shall not fly spirit again."
Pros: "Your flight crew was great. Jason in particular went out of his way to make sure our flight was enjoyable and was so pleasant."
Pros: "Food and entertainment non applicable"
Cons: "Tight fit for 3 adults in a row...paid extra for space but just wasn't there"
