Cons: "Flight was delayed due to weather, understandable. We deplaned. This was the first short 1.5 hour leg of an international flight. It seemed clear that we would not make our connecting flights, which messes everything up with covid tests, quarantine, and all the many restrictions that airlines have insisted without thinking about the consequences. I tried to share my concern with the agent at American Airlines, knowing that it would probably be better to rebook and start all over for the following week or something. But his limited perspective, condescending attitude, and egotistical control behavior would not listen to me and was only concerned with getting me to the first stop 1.5 hours away. 7hrs later, stuck on that same plane which rerouted and refueled, I am now stuck in a city for 2 days since I had to rebook and start all over for missing my international connecting flight. Still have 20+ more hours of flying to go and nowhere closer to my destination. Hotel, rental, and new covid tests are all at my expense. Just wish American Airlines staff would listen and help, but if you don't shut up and comply to their every demand, they will ban you and ruin your life forever."

Cons: "The gate was occupied when we landed on schedule."
Pros: "Seats were ok"
Pros: "All employees were awesome."
Cons: "I have no complaints."
Pros: "Average crew. The seat became comfortable after complaining that the one I requested was not noted on passenger request or should I say begging for the request."
Cons: "Listen to the passenger."
Pros: "Boarding was quick"
Cons: "Power in the airplane to charge phones. A form of entertainment would have been nice"
Pros: "Crew was ok. The basics. No issues."
Cons: "WiFi and better entertainment"
Cons: "The crew was not friendly. Rude tone."
Cons: "Because of 12 hr between original flight and this flight, we drive"
Pros: "Good"
Cons: "Good"
Cons: "Overall terrible experience, flight attendant was extremely rude when i asked if they were offering sparkiling wine. Flight was delayed due to overbooking on american. Turbulence was horrible the entire flight. The in flight entertainment was unavailable for some reason."
Cons: "My original flight was delayed then we had to spend the night in Dallas."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "No legroom in 17 E"
Pros: "Once aboard, LATAM is actually quite impressive. The logistical part of the company is horrendous, but the service onboard is exemplar."
Cons: "LATAM changed my itinerary without my authorization and despite my clear verbal directions to NOT change it. The airline took directions from a corrupt official with the Colombian immigration office and cancelled my return flights. I was forced to purchase an additional ticket, travel on and separate flight from my wife and children. I then had to spend several hours waiting to resolve the case in person. The customer service at LATAM is a joke. If I'd received this treatment in the United States, I would have filed a lawsuit for their infringement on my rights and collaboration with the discriminatory practices of the Colombian immigration office in Bogota."
Pros: "Flight was smooth"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "This was my final connection from a long flight, we did a line to check in and get our boarding passes, when we got to the gate I found out I didn’t have a seat number asigned but husband did, they gave me one there but of course it was not next to my husband, it was the last seat available at the end next to restroom. The smell coming out from the it was so disgusting even before th first person went in, they should do something to improve the cleaness in the restroom between flights. It would probably take them 30 more minutes to do so, and I would not mind waiting for it even if this was my final flight after 15+ hours."
Cons: "I STILL HAVE NOT LEFT RIC!!!!"
Cons: "AA lost put my checked baggage onto a different flight during my layover in Philly to my final destination. After losing my baggage, it took them over 24 hours to return it to me, telling me that it would only be "another hour" till they would deliver it to my house. No airline is perfect, but I don't like being lied to about my baggage not being transferred properly to my final flight, nor do appreciate how they kept giving me vague estimates and round-a-bout answers about my checked bag which they lost in the first place. If I can help it, I will never fly with American Airlines again; they have lost my business!"
Cons: "The turbulence st the end made me puke."

Cons: "Not a fan of baggage fees especially this high for only one checked. Next time Southwest Air, I guess."
Pros: "Cookie"
Cons: "Flight delayed"
Cons: "Boarding was delayed 30 minutes, with no explanation. Upon arrival, another airplane was in our gate, resulting in an additional 30 minute wait, buckled in my seat on the tarmac."
Pros: "Poor service They had a severely overweight person sitting next to me. She was struggling putting on her seat belt for a few minutes. I was very uncomfortable in my seat. The flight attendant was walking around withh seat belt extenders ; why are you accommodating severely overweight customers at the expense of others?"

Pros: "Everythinf was great, First time flying with them and I would do it again."
Pros: "Nothing exceptional"
Cons: "Change fees are ludicrous. Also flight was late."
Pros: "No much"
Cons: "What poor services all round. The check in staff where on the phone or talk to themselves. No one even spoke to me at checkin. Then the boarding staff were so rude, they act like they own the plane and they are god. They would not answer anyone questions and just pointed at the screen. The airplane staff hello at least. But the food very so bad, even easyjet has better food. Also their understanding for the english was so poor but the air stewardess told me " we speak American" !!!!"
Pros: "Everything"
Pros: "I was traveling with a pet and they were very kind and helpful to me."
Pros: "The seats in this flight were quite roomy."
Cons: "Delayed and canceled flights with no apologies or explanations, rude crews who scoffed at complaints or requests of other passengers, lost baggage that took hours to recover, again without apology....I would rather pay a bit more than fly with American again, at least until these memories fade a bit."
Cons: "When I booked my flight, I used Kayac like I always have in the past. To begin with, I selected several flights that were listed, only to have it tell me that this flight is no longer offered, which I assume is engineered to get me to select a more expensive flight. Once I finally found a flight that was still available, I selected it and began the process of providing information and selecting seat assignments. On 2 of the 4 legs of the round trip, there were no more seats available except for upgrade seats, which resulted in an extra $100.00+ in charges. Then when I finished the transaction, I noticed an extra $200.00 charge added. End result was that I ended up paying over double what I would normally pay for this same round trip that I have made many many times. I feel, no I know, that some customer relations person will look at this comment and reply with a pre-generated response apologizing and hoping I have a better experience in the future and thank me for using Kayac. Big companies like yours look at one customer as no big deal. I'm a Physician and have the ability to reach out to multitudes. I'm going to make it my mission in life to reach out to as many people as I can through word of mouth, signs in my office, Internet and social media to let them know about the deplorable practices of your company."
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Paying extra for seating"
Cons: "The people were rude and made us stay on the plane an hour and a half after we landed."
Pros: "Other passengers trying to make light of hectic situation."
Cons: "Delayed because crew was not able to get to the gate in time. Once they arrived they got things moving but passengers were already flustered and the airline stewards also seemed flustered, their attempts and multiple announcements to move people faster did not help and actually made things move slower..."
Pros: "I received help from the staff at the airport when I wasn't sure what to do."
Cons: "My flight was changed a few times so I was sitting in the airport for seven hours before I was even informed on which flight I would actually be on. Horrible experience."

Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "We have no other complaints. It was all good."
Cons: "There was no air conditioner on the airplane . made it very uncomfortable ."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "I arrived at the airport and the guy wouldn't let me board my flight so I lost my money. Im a new person that just started flying. I did like this Carrier but as of yesterday I'd rather use Delta for now on. So im still at home and didnt get a chance to make it to work."
Pros: "My flight arrived a few minutes late but they made sure I made the connection."

Basic economy experience needs to be on par with other airlines. Gate agent was very rude. Bag was lost.

Pros: "Amazing crew and comfortable seats"
Cons: "Food, movies"
Pros: "The price for flight was great. Layover was perfectly timed and didn’t have to wait long before boarding."

Cons: "Seats could be more comfortable."

Pros: "Entertainment variety and selection. Food and Drink. Had the curry chicken, surprisingly good."
Cons: "Not enough food & drink service. On an 11 hour flight went 4 hours without a visit from food/drink cart. On the flight from Houston to Munich the food was lousy but we got several more visits/opportunities for drinks."
Cons: "Taggged carry-on bag, claimed A/C had no space, when I boarded saw lots of bin space not used. I am on a transfer to Intl. fight, so in sFO had to claim baggage and go through all of security again"
Pros: "Crew board and also on plane were accommodating and very friendly."
Cons: "Three people in row and all over 200lbs it felt like ever time to get seatbelt Or the horrible placed outlets between seats but under seat and you can not look under seat cause no space in front of you to access and can’t help but to rub against person in next too you. So had to apologize and explain what was trying to do before I tried. I try not to fly this airline or other large carries for"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled on our way back home from Gudalajara, was speaking to a representative for almost 2 hours to get me on the next flight the flight representative forgot to put me on hold and told everyone how rude i was, i was not rude i was just trying to get home. The representative couldn’t help me so i asked to be transferred to a manager, after 2 hours i was transferred and the manager hung the phone up. Long story short i called back spoke to another manager Yana and she was the rudest lady ever! She basically told me for waiting to long i will have to be placed on a flight 2 days after my cancellation flight. I started to cry because i needed to be home and she basically did not care so i took the date. Never again and i will warn everyone about this airline and their customer service!"
Pros: "The marvel of flying. Hurling through the air in a metal tubeZ amazing. We got there safe and on time. That’s what I liked about United. Oh and there was a CSR that was helpful in changing to an earlier flight."
Cons: "Plane was dirty. Bathroom disgusting. Crew just trying to get through the work day. Seats too close and REAL uncomfortable. Like sitting on a plastic frame with a piece of fake leather over it. Entertainment was awful. Oh wait, non existent since it was an “out of country” flight so there was no access to movies (that you had to PAY for). Otherwise you got to watch Matthew Perry in some taxi game show over and over and over and over on a monitor in your face that couldn’t be shut off. United is my last choice in airlines. But we did get to the destination safe and on time."
Pros: "Nothing, The flight didn't happen"
Cons: "Waited for 6.5 hours for the flight to get cancelled and rescheduled for a week later."
Cons: "The flight coming in was late and caused my connections to change. I am not able to arrive in Eugene until AT LEAST 5 hours later then first scheduled."
Cons: "I really hate that the major airline companies are charging for every little thing now. I shouldn't have to pay extra for entertainment & an outlet on a 2+ hour flight."
Pros: "Crew was great and helpful!"
Cons: "Not enough options for people with celiac."
Cons: "taxi time longer than fly time"
Pros: "The flight was short."
Cons: "Felt cramped and"
Cons: "No beverage offered during the entire flight. Plane was on the runway for about 40 min prior to take-off. What a waste of time!"
Cons: "We booked what was labeled a Lufthansa flight and paid extra because we had flown Lufthansa before and thought the service and the flight were excellent. Imagine our surprise when we found out it was a United Flight. We were on the plane for almost 11 hours and we just had a small lunch and a snack that was tiny. We were starving when we got off. Next time, British Airways gets my money. I want to know what airline I am paying for all the way through without the switching shenanigans."
Pros: "Snacks and drink"
Cons: "Average"
Pros: "I liked that the crew was nice and caring."
Cons: "I didn't like the take off or landing."

Pros: "Ease and Comfort. Each terminal in our two-leg journey was modern, immaculate and simple to navigate. The flight and crew were outstanding; attentive and professional. Keep up the good work!"
Cons: "We just couldn't justify paying 16.00 so each of us could watch TV for two hours. We would have appreciated basic TV, in order for us to stay on top of the National/World news. We feel it is part of our best interest, as a country and world, to keep informed. Please allow for at least BBC to be viewed. For Free. Thank You."
Pros: "Staff was friendly. And,Handicap assistance was good."
Cons: "Check in was very complicated & inconvienent! They wouldn't accept my gift bank card. Then we had to pay for a card because they didnt accept cash either,& nowhere,to get,cash. My husband had to leave &get money out,which took a,half hour-no easy way to check in."
Pros: "Good flight"
Cons: "Too tight to sit in seat"
Pros: "Friendly atmosphere"
Pros: "Overall, the flight and crew were great. Thank you."
Pros: "free entertainment system with movies, spacious seats and overhead space, drinks served, arrived early"
Cons: "nothing"
Cons: "I was told that a transport would be available upon landing, it was only there for first class patrons. We landed 20 minutes late due to maintenance issues and I missed my flight by five minutes. I feel that united could have expedited my departure from the plane."
Pros: "Missed my flight so I ended up staying overnight in the airport to catch the 5:25 am flight the next morning. One of the cleaning staff found a blanket for me which really helped since it was incredible cold in the airport."
Cons: "Security line at BWI is extremely long and under staffed compared to other airports. There was not enough legroom and the flight attendants pressured people to check baggage when there was plenty of room on the flight to stow luggage."
Pros: "'Nuff said"
Cons: "Everything else was great!!!"
Cons: "lack of storage space overhead. cramped seating. old plane. no wifi or entertainment."

Pros: "Both flights left on time and arrived at least 20 minutes early. My bag arrived at the baggage claim ten minutes after I arrived, and all went very well. I'm grateful."
Cons: "All was perfect"
Pros: "Quick bording, organized. Smooth flight."
Cons: "On board entertainment lacked horribly unless you are willing to pay extra. And the on flight snack was a joke."
Pros: "Flight was on-time with departure and arrival."
Cons: "The air fare was way over priced."
Cons: "I was put on wrong flight and arrived 4 hours after scheduled landing."
Pros: "The crew members during boarding were sensitive and very urgent in the process."
Cons: "The only delayed flights were the ones fron United, all the other airlines were on time. The attendant was stubborn and made comments not appreciated I lost my connecting flight in Houston and had to stay 8 hour in the airport until 6M Horrible experience"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "My flight was booked canceled then changed and rebooked without me knowing for a month later I was supposed to leave June 5th not July 5th I had to pay a extra $409 this trip cost me $781.00 for no reason I will Never use kayak again."
Pros: "The Airbus 380 was nice"
Cons: "Lost our luggage took 4 days to finally get it"
Cons: "I received somewhat bad service at every point of contact with United. My flight was canceled in Houston, so I forced to stay overnight. I asked the rep at the customer service station if United pays for a hotel room if our flight gets canceled, I was told no. There were several canceled flights, do all the hotels were booked in the area. It was up to me to call every hotel in a 10 mile radius at midnight to find a room. I had to come out of pocket 150 dollars for the room and I missed work the following day due to my canceled flight. I was forced to stay in a hotel room with none of my clean clothes, no toiletries. I was told by a united rep, "we get off at midnight so you won't be able to get your suitcase today". All in all, it was one of the worst flying experiences I have ever had. I would like some one to call or email me."
Pros: "The seat next to me was empty"
Cons: "I landed at Houston at 2am and there was no food options open or comfortable sleeping locations fo Try to rest"
Pros: "No issues ELP to HOU"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "1st plane felt and sounded like it was going to fall apart"
Pros: "FLIGHT WAS QUICKER"
Cons: "FLIGHT GATE CHANGED FROM TICKET, COUNTER BOARDING WAS "UN-ACCOMODATING"."
Pros: "Everything was great except the long delays. We were suppose to leave at 206 but the flight kept getting delayed. I understand delays but it would have been nice if someone would have told us why. There was no one at the desk for a long time. But once we were on the plane and in the air everything was great."
Pros: "Flight was delayed over 3 hours. They upgraded my seat and let me carry on my bad so I did not miss the connecting flight. It was close, but they went out of their way to help."
Cons: "Flight was delayed over 3 hours"
Pros: "I paid 270$ extra for the carry on bags for the three tickets. If I knew that I would have chosen United tickets because they would be cheaper."
Cons: "Kayak you guys fooled me and I’ll not trust you again."
Pros: "On time, no issues and because it was my birthday they upgraded me for free to the exit row. I am 6'6"...that is a big deal."
Cons: "Nada"
Pros: "The cheap price was the pro."
Cons: "The crew flew through the safety thing and all announcements were hard to understand because they mumbled and spoke very quickly. They only smiled when we were getting off the plane"
Pros: "Flight not over booked Cheap ticket"
Cons: "$45 to bring a carry on ? Attendant at the gate was ill prepared for her tasks. Almost like it was her first day, and she had no one there to help her. She had no clue what to do with people gate checking strollers and instead of finding help, she stood there looking helpless."
Pros: "Like everybody else I didn't like the carry-on/ luggage payment. But you can still take one personal item(laptop bag/purse) for free. Also with cheap air-fare, I really don't have to complain about anything! All the details regarding boarding pass, online check-in, baggage, seats, etc is mentioned on their website, so if you don't choose to pay attention before boarding the plane then its not airline's fault. My flight was delayed 3 times. But I was informed well in time through automatic updates I signed up for. Frontier's Google App is very helpful to track the flight status, etc. Staff was very kind and courteous. Airplane was clean. Thank you for serving chilled water. I appreciate it."
Cons: "Apart from the flight delay, I didn't had any trouble in flying with Frontier."
Pros: "I flew for 3 hours and landed safely"
Cons: "Everything else, paying $40 each way for carry on, paying additional amount for selecting a seat, no one even offered a cup of water for three hours, can of soda 2.99. Complete rip off. Worst travel thus far for me."
Cons: "I was sitting near the front, (row 5) and wanted a cup of coffee. The stewardess served the seats in front of me total of 3 cups of coffee. When she got to me, she said there was not any more coffee available!!! So... why do you make less than one pot of coffee on each of your flights? This was really weird!"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled"
Pros: "Paid half as much booking w Frontier. First experience w them. Less comfortable (hard seats, leg room) but worth the trade off for 2.5 hr flight. I made a somewhat last minute decision to fly out on a one- night trip. Paid $45 each way to carry on my laptop. Rough landing coming home."
Cons: "Thin, hard seats; less leg room; $45 carry on charge each way for laptop; rough landing; one of attendants was rude."
Pros: "Getting off the plane, pilot and crew on plane."
Cons: "There was nothing to like. Ticketing was horrible. Cut off times not allowing people to get on plane in phoenix. It was chaos. The police were called on one man. Charge for carry on and refreshments card only with No warning at time of purchase. Had to throw away my luggage."
Pros: "My seat, but I paid $30 for it"
Cons: "Hook with a deceptive low cost, then charge for seats, carry-on as well as the charge for checked bags most other airlines impose. Snack offered for a fee only. Any drink other than water for a fee only. Really?? Then flight attendants push credit card. Offensive. Won't fly Frontier again."
Pros: "Yes, on Frontier you have to pay for any extras - more cushy seats, baggage beyond carryons you can fit under the seat, beverages, food, etc. However, the price of the flight is worth it, even if you add on baggage charges. And a direct flight is priceless."
Cons: "We were a little late boarding, but still made it to Houston on time, so not a big deal, and often unavoidable."
Pros: "The crew was great and made the smart and thoughtful decision to allow us to unboard and reboard the plane after it was announced that the wheels would need changing and would take 1.5 hours"
Cons: "Major delays meant we were 2 hours behind schedule. These things happen."
Pros: "Only positive was that it was a red eye so I slept through the in air portion."
Cons: "Delayed for 2.5 hours apparently to wait for flight attendants from another flight. Seat confusion amongst passengers. Seats are worn and terribly uncomfortable."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "First time flying with Frontier and two of the flights were delayed over an hour..."
Cons: "Be warned--this airline charges for EVERYTHING, including drinks in flight and carry-ons. After spending nearly $100 on bags, I had to wait over an hour in baggage claim before the bags made it to us."
Pros: "Friendly staff."
Cons: "Got delayed almost one hour. Seats didn't lean back. No snacks included."
Cons: "Flight delayed 5+ hours, received no notification from kayak"
Pros: "I liked the crew, they were very personable and nice."
Cons: "Charging $40 per carry on? Are you kidding me?? We didn't budget for that and almost had to fly with no luggage. For this reason alone we are never taking another flight from Frontier. It's bad enough that Frontier charges for all baggage, but we had no idea when we bought the tickets off Kayak, that it would be an extra $130 for luggage. What a rip off. Then at the airport, the line to get a baggage ticket wasn't that long, but it took almost 45 minutes. Every time we fly Southwest or Delta, it takes only 10 minutes to get our baggage tagged and on our way to security. I was also unpleasantly surprised that even water costs $2. Other airlines give a free drink, but Frontier charges $2. Terrible. And the seats don't recline. In summary for areas to improve: don't charge me for carry on and don't charge me for water. I will also be looking for another online venue to buy my next tickets, we thought we were going to get a great deal (round trip tickets for two people for around $680) but instead will end up paying in the neighborhood of $885. Kayak let us down big time."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Seats didn't lay back and had to pay for carry on luggage"
Cons: "Having to pay for drinks"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "We missed the flight so has to rebuy tickets from another airline with another $1600"
Pros: "Pissed to be charged 60 dollars for a carry on briefcase. Fuel costs are down its about time these airlines stop gouging us. I try not to fly Frontier and this reminded me why."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "9 hr delay. Having to pay $45.00 per bag. Staff at departing terminal extremely rude. Seats are very uncomfortable. No leg room, even for short people. Had to pay for drinks on flight. No peanuts or pretzels."
Pros: "The flight was on time. The crew was very nice and helpful. The aircraft was clean."
Cons: "I didn't like that there was a charge for your carry-on luggage and also a charge if you wanted to select your seat."
Pros: "The whole crew was so nice and very understanding"
Cons: "The seat where so uncomfortable it was terrible I just almost wanted to lay down on the floor"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The plane was almost 2 hours late, we had to change terminals (and go through security twice as a result), the flight attendants seemed like they weren't trying and freaked out the plane passengers by announcing that we were going to Denver instead of Hoiston"
Pros: "The airfare was reasonable, and boarding was fairly quick."
Cons: "Paying $40 dollars for a checked bag is ridiculous and $45 for a carry-on is high way robbery. They need to revamp their baggage policies. The baggage prices will prevent me from flying with this airline in the future."
Cons: "poor customer service poor relation of important flight updates and statuses. Will avoid flying with frontier by any means necessary."
Pros: "Nothing good to say."
Cons: "The boarded us twice and deplaned us twice. The airplane had mechanical problems and took them more than 12 hours to fix, because it was missing a part that was going to take them more than 8 hours to get in our airport (not sure where the part was coming from that took them that long). After fixing it the crew couldn't fly because of federal regulations that states the crew can only work for 8 h. After this whole ordeal, my flight ended up cancelled."
Cons: "This airline has lots of extra fees on top of the ticket price. It was $13 to pick a seat each way and $30 to bring a bag. I would never fly this airline ever again. I would rather pay more money and fly United or American Airlines"
Cons: "The amount of hidden fees was ridiculous. It added on about $80 after the price it quoted me. The staff on board were super rude to everyone. And you can't even get any food or drinks on board without them charging you more! Ridiculous..."
Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "Late, really late Last minute gate change required to exit secure area and go through security again Very little communication from gate agents Seats (the most premium price added onto fare) very hard The flight attendant loudly hawked their frequent flyer program over the pa several times during the flight"
Pros: "Easy quick boarding"
Cons: "Seats were tiny with very little room. No complimentary snack or drinks and a very annoying pilot that thought he was a comedian."
Pros: "Not sure"
Cons: "They started boarding and then stopped so we were stuck in the breezeway. Then we sat on the plane for what seemed like forever. The crew were not approachable and helpful. The plane was freezing!!"
Cons: "This flight was delayed several times. I requested a cancellation of my flight due to the delayed arrival would result in major difficulty due to arriving in destination after midnight. Frontier representative would not budge on their fee of $99 for a cancellation fee. We arrived after 1 am, therefore agency where I had reserved auto was closed, so I had to book a hotel close to airport. I have flown with Frontier a few times, and each time there has been delays of 30-90 minutes. This has resulted in major inconveniences, missed appointments and some unsafe conditions."
Pros: "Absolutely Nothing!"
Cons: "Our flight was cancelled. There were over 200 people waiting at the ticket counter and there were only TWO agents to take care of all the problems!!! When I tried to call Frontier, all their lines were busy and I kept getting disconnected due to the high volume...wasn't even put on hold. When I tried booking a flight online for the next day, it said all the flights were full. During all this chaos, no one told us how or wahere we were supposed to retrieve our luggage, what options we had...NOTHING!!! We even asked the ticketing personnel to announce where people could retrieve their luggage...their response was "I guess we could do that"...but they never did! We ended up booking a last minute flight on another airline that cost us a ton of money. So, while Fromtier bills themselves as a low cost airline, one glitch and they fall apart on the service side and you end up paying A LOT more. Also, watch out for all the extra fees they charge you. Their initial price looks great, but I had to pay $30 for a carry-on bag! Had to pay additional money for a seat in coach! They nickel and dime you to death and it ends up costing the same as the other full price carriers. BUYER BEWARE!!!"
Pros: "I liked the lady pilot but she was almost too nice...shouldn't sound so apologetic about weather or mechanical delays which are out of her control or for the passengers' safety. Comfort was as expected. Boarding was pretty smooth. (But de-boarding and re-boarding was a pretty disruptive fiasco.)"
Cons: "What entertainment? What food? Or do you mean 'snack and drink choices for purchase'? (Didn't purchase anything b/c not to my liking but...l think probably for most, okay.) The crew, for the most part, with what they have to work with (mostly information, no real service except to sell snacks, etc), they were fine and kept mainly to themselves."
Pros: "Someone on the flight had the Flu and my wife some friends end up with it."
Cons: "The a/c was not cool enough."
Cons: "The pilot saying they would go fast and ant other w as you they could to make up time. I 5hink everyone knows acciders happen when you rush and don't follow normal protocol. Maybe I am the only one that doesn't like anew attendant that jokes about safety."
Pros: "No line at check in"
Cons: "Additional charges, seat, checked bag, 2nd carry on. Checked bag was higher for the trip home. Added $89 to my cost which made the price the same as an airline that allows baggage for free with free drink/snacks and roomier/ reclining seats."
Pros: "Flight crew was extremely nice and helpful."
Cons: "No inflight entertainment"
Pros: "Flight was delayed about 3 hours. First was a delay of 1 and half hours for maintenance, then they brought a different plane. Then we were delayed an hour on the tarmack for an hour due to weather. Not their fault But all we were offered was water. Brew was very nice. Just really felt that due to "double whammy". Should have at least got a coke. They also charge $40 for carry on bag. Really."
Cons: "I was quite shocked when checking in our seats were located in a different spot from what I reserved, I would have liked to have been notified about this change."
Pros: "I think this airline should be a little more open about what's going on. Upon booking, no mention of baggage fees. There was a delay that we knew nothing about as we sat there. The crew wasn't very welcoming. Probably wouldn't book Frontier again."
Pros: "Flight was boarded rather efficiently and we arrived early."
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable, baggage fees are unreasonable, no complimentary beverages, and customer service was subpar."
Cons: "We bought four tickets including one for my two year old Grandaughter. She spilled granola under her seat. The make flight attendant asked my daughter if he should get her a bag so she could clean it up? My daughter said so you want me to get on my hands and knees and clean it? He said there was no one to clean it. Then when we were walking out I overheard the female flight attendant tell the make flight attendant she had an attitude. We managed to keep her sitting down and quiet tge majority of the flight. What exactly to they expect from a 25 month old toddler? Also we should have been made aware that the checked bag fee would go up if not booked with our ticket. A 199# increase is substantial."
Pros: "I did not receive credit from Spirit Airlines for the reason of Covid-19"
Pros: "The flight was smooth and the landing was prefect. The flight attendants were especially kind."
Cons: "Digital boarding pass without error."
Cons: "Mechanical problems caused 3+ hour delay. Missed being able to pick up my rental and didn't make for quite the same evening."
Pros: "Pretty mediocre"
Cons: "Lost baggage messed up my camping trip"
Pros: "The flight attendant was thoughtful, kind enough to offer to move me from cramped middle seat near back of plane to an empty exit row. Since I’m nearly 6’5” tall, that was greatly appreciated."
Cons: "There were no “dislikes”. I didn’t buy any drink or food onboard."
Pros: "Cheap n effective"
Cons: "Airport work"
Cons: "The flight was delayed :) Merry Christmas"
Pros: "The spirit employee offered me a seat in the exit aisle. My long legs much appreciated it!"
Cons: "It cost us over $200 extra to take carry ons. I didn't read this in the fine print. $59 each carry on! Each way!"
Pros: "Easy booking and website"
Cons: "A lot of people were out of seats during plane travel to stand around and chat which made it uncomfortable having people hover over me when I was trying to sleep"
Pros: "Nothing!"
Cons: "Everything! I will never fly with them again! This was the first! Also the LAST!!!!!"
Cons: "I was bounced from the out-going flight and the return flight was delayed twice...once a scheduled one hour delay, then that one was 45 minutes late."
Pros: "I eventually got there"
Cons: "This flight changed my entire experience. The desk people are so cold I watched at least 5 people cry due to their harsh communication and rigid decisions. Got into the airport at 7 something am and didn't make it on a flight to New Orleans until 9 layover Florida. Staff wasn't easy to work with I would've paid hundreds extra for a better experience"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled with no reason given, it took almost an hour to call and get my return trip cancelled because the website would not allow me to change my flight. Representative tried to reschedule me for a 12 hour trip when the original flight was 2.5 hours before finally cancelling my trip all together. Spirit ended up costing me $150 more than had I booked with another airline at the beginning because I was left having to purchase a ticket day of on a competitor."
Cons: "they were rude and uncooperative. They have no type of customer service. If you ask them a question they are short and direct. If you try to work out to find a solution...they just are plain rude and do not make an effort whatsoever to accommodate their customers. They abide by their ridiculous rules and plainly will not work with you. Besides that they started to charge for separate baggage fees. So you'll but a ticket for "cheap" but then they will charge you double for baggage both ways. My boyfriend purchased a ticket and wanted to make changes...they wanted to charge him $100 to change flight info. RIDICULOUS. He ended buying another ticket....Spirit took $200 in fees extra from us."
Pros: "Boarding was easy and the crew was friendly"
Cons: "The charges for our carry on baggage and the flight delays."
Pros: "Perfect time"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Quick no nonsense boarding"
Cons: "Nowhere did it say I had to pay for an assigned seat or pay for a carry on! I undestand paying for food/snacks but who doesn't give out free glasses of water?! Not having a mobile boarding pass was a pain too.... not until I made it to the front of the security line did I find out I had to have a paper copy! Whatever money I saved with them I lost by paying for my baggage. never again!"
Pros: "I was kept in line until it was too late to allow me to get a boarding pass. The 3 groups of travelers before me took an unusually long time as they could not understand why they were not allowed to get boarding passes. The CS Manager did direct me to an airline that I was able to buy full price ticket from."
Cons: "The same excuse was given to every traveler that was in the line with me. I listened to it explained to at least 10 travelers that day. Since that time, I have yet to hear any positive feedback from anyone that travels frequently. You seem to pray on people that do not travel often. The ticket that was purchased for this fight was bought by my wife. She was trying to do me a favor. Maybe some that actually cares about your reputation and would like to see your airlines succeed over time will contact me in an attempt to change my opinion. I can be contacted at john.w@ug-fl.com"
Pros: "Crew was awesome. And fast boarding as well"
Cons: "Seats are horrible no recline and very hard. Also very close to each other a little space would be nice. The fact that you have to pay $3.00 for a water and $4.00 for a soda is ridiculous. Those should. Be complimentary."
Pros: "Nothing! I will never fly with spirit again"
Pros: "There was nothing that i liked ."
Cons: "Seats do not recline. Excessive charge for carry on luggage - $45 each way Bait and switch tactics by pricing the ticket price low and then charging for EVERYTHING. Flight crew has nothing much to do but stand around and gossip"
Pros: "Fast boarding, but then we sat with the door open for 20 minutes. Flight was fine. I would only ever consider flying again if there was a phenomenal price break from the next cheapest airline."
Cons: "Gate change with no announcement or change on departures board. Late takeoff. Tiny cramped seats, and miniature tray tables. Trash in front of my seat at boarding. The majority of passengers seemed to be inexperienced flyers, maybe gravitating towards the cheap fare? VERY annoying, needy, chatty, panickey at take off and landing. Not a pleasant environment."
Pros: "We arrived in one piece in a timely fashion. That's it."
Cons: "The rows of seats are incredibly small, to the point the man in front of me leaped out of his seat and accused me of jamming my knees into his back. I was just sitting there and I think he was stretching back into my long legs. Really, there was nothing I could do because there was no room to move my legs out of his way. And the airline DIDNT EVEN OFFER WATER! And let's not forget that we weren't told ahead of time they charge for carry-on bags, so our affordable tickets went up $110 in cost. I will never fly Spirit again."
Pros: "Great price!!!!!! Great crew!!!! On time!!!"
Cons: "Color of the plane. Joking. Great value keep it up, completely satisfied, you couldn't do it better."
Pros: "I slept for most of the flight, and boarding was good. No complaints."
Cons: "A lot of turbulence on descent, as well as a hard landing on a day of seemingly perfect weather."
Pros: "Low initial price"
Cons: "Seats are not proper airplane seats"
Pros: "Spirit will charge $55 for a carry on and $50 per bag under 40#, more if heavier, so add those costs to their "cheap" fares. Seats are cramped and do not recline. No snack or comp drink of any kind."
Cons: "You get what you pay for and pay some more for hidden charges ."
Pros: "Saved a ton of money booking through Spirit, well worth the savings."
Cons: "Boarding was pretty disorganized and delayed the flight."
Pros: "The safe seemed friendly, I had no complaints with them."
Cons: "The airline charges a carry on which I didn't see clearly when booking my flight. They also don't offer complimentary beverages; which isn't a huge deal. However, I would of brought a drink with me if I knew that. The aircraft felt very dirty, the seats had stains all over them. I felt gross sitting in my row."
Pros: "The staff."
Cons: "Being nickeled and dimed. Could not check in on line, your computer clich, so had to stand in line longer."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The comfortable seating was the best part of the flight."
Cons: "The main crew on the microphone did not speak clearly. There was no entertainment for the flight even though it was short. Boarding flowed ok."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "One hou in line to check in. They charge for water.. enough said."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by almost 6 hours. They didn't even try to voucher food or give any free snacks or drinks on the plane. I do not think that was the right thing to do."
Pros: "One of my suitcases got left behind but it came in on a latter flight. My brother in law came in on that flight so he was able to pick it up for me. Saved the airline money on a courier from Houston to Galveston. I still don't have my clothes will pick them up at the ship. I called them to see if they would comp all my luggage on the way back but they wouldn't. I will never fly spirit airlines again. Thought I was getting a good deal on the flight but didn't with there expensive bag check on policy. $166 for three bags then I have to pay the same on the way home. What a rip off"
Cons: "The seats didn't recline at all and the seats were smaller and much closer together than normal."
Pros: "Leg room"
Cons: "Everything worst airline!!!!"
Pros: "The flight was not full so we had extra room."
Cons: "When you purchase your ticket it's very inexpensive. But when you go to check in, you find out you should pay for bags and if you prefer a assign seat you must pay for that also. The extra fees on my flight cost $250.00. You can only purchase food on the plane with a debit card. nothing is free. When you factor that in with the cost of the ticket, the price isn't much lower than other airlines that include the extras in the price."
Pros: "Low cost ticket"
Cons: "I had a very small carry-on and the attendant at the airport said I still had to pay a baggage fee because my carry-on had wheels. I ended up paying more for the baggage fees than the actual ticket."
Pros: "The non stop"
Cons: "Spirit airline"
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Terrible service. I pay 500+ for an airline ticket and i dont even get a free snack? Should feed the people decent for what we pay. Seats were terrible, no space to rest. Not flying Spirit again unless i hear about some changes."
Cons: "Cancelled my flight at the last second."
Cons: "The additional charges that weren't mentioned when ourchasinf the flight... I have to pay $45 for my carry-on? That's ridiculous. I won't fly Spirit again."
Pros: "Nothing, I should have paid just a little more and flown in comfort"
Cons: "I don't like the hidden cost that you can only find out by their website or as some found out when they checked in. Just be upfront and let the customer make up their mind. I really didn't save any money and I didn't get my money's worth."
Cons: "Delayed flight, loud crew members talking the entire flight leaving me unable to sleep, tiny rows no leg room"
Pros: "I didn't eat, speak to staff or use entertainment. Seats didn't recline much and were not very cushiony. Longer than a 3 hr flight would have hurt"
Pros: "The flight was cheap"
Cons: "The flight is cheap because baggage is outrageous, so unless you are packing light it's not worth it."
Pros: "That I got home in one piece"
Cons: "Not being able to put my knees behind the seat in front of me (cramped). Not being able to put the seat back at all. Plane is very noisy. Have to pay for water. To top off a poor experience, the flight was 2.5 hours late and it took 45 minutes to get our luggage due to conveyor malfunction, So we got home at 10:30 instead of 8:00. I hoped to get some decent sleep before getting up at 5 am to get ready for work."
Pros: "The girl that helped us with our suitcases at boarding time was nice and considerate. The airplane staff was pleasant and had a smile on their face. They were also very accommodating."
