There were seats available and Delta tried to move me but KLM would not allow it????"
Pros: "The leg room and freedom of not having another seat in front of me throughout this flight was great. It made getting comfortable a lot easier."

Cons: "Missed flight in DFW. All other flights full. Had to reroute thru Miami"
Cons: "The first class flight attendants were VERY RUDE to the passengers getting on the plane, especially the male flight attendant. While serving drinks, instead of saying things like "pardon me", they would say "move" (as was said directly to me) and get out of the way" (as I herd him say to another passinger). Very disrespectful way to treat a person, let alone a paying customer! Btw...I am a middle class 5' 11" tall college educated male."

Pros: "The pilot apologized for the delay and promised to get us there as quick as he can, if that was possible. But, it was thoughtful of him."
Cons: "Although I was informed that the flight was delayed, it was too late, I was already at the airport. A two delay ended up being three hours delay. When it was time to board, we had to wait for a crew member, further delaying boarding. Finally on the flight, I was served cold coffee!!! There was no blanket!"
Pros: "The cue was great. Did not try the food! Overall I had a ver good experience. The seats on the airline needed more leg and seer room . The space was uncomfortable. And I am not a fat person"

Pros: "The seats had head rests"
Cons: "Rude staff, flight was delayed. No food or drink service."

Pros: "The planes people and service."
Cons: "I missed my flight in Atlanta heading to LA on my way to Brisbane, Australia on Saturday 16th July. The ground staff wasn't at all helpful in trying to get me on another flight and in fact sent me to Delta! The lady there couldn't have been nicer and more helpful. Sadly I wasn't compensated at all and had to pay to re-book the flights on the Sunday 17th. On my return from Brisbane, American Airlines had cancelled my flight to Atlanta as they said I was a 'no show' heading out. Thankfully I was able to get a seat on stand by. So, no I'm not a happy customer."
Pros: "thiughy it was a good price on the fare. Now I know why"
Cons: "The representatives and staff at your LaGuardia airport need some serious customer service training. Very rude - no one seemed to know what was going on. Flights were pulling up they rebooked and they were fussing at customers. Understaffed and delaying and canceling flights. Would not recommend to anyone to fly with them. Even on connection changed gates 3 times. So customer unfriendly!"
Pros: "The Professionalism"
Cons: "There is not nothing to say"
Cons: "The crew on the return flight home were a bit nasty..."
Cons: "This flight never happened due to an airport and schedule shift caused by the first leg being cancelled."
Pros: "The pre recorded safety instructions. Very friendly crew, they really worked hard the entire flight."

Cons: "Security going through my luggage over a candle"
Pros: "Flight and flight crew were wonderful. No problems at all."
Cons: "I was stranded in Miami airport because I was bumped from every flight. I was late to my 0500 flight from Houston because I circled the airport 3 times looking for the rental car return. Tried to check in 5 min. before boarding time. Was told I had to be rebooked. No problem. Next flight left about 0830. Made it to Miami. Was bumped every flight that day. Was #1 and #2 on waiting list for last 4 flights of the day, but was not given a seat. Others who were either employees or also waiting somehow got a seat though. How is this? Had to sleep in airport and pray to make the AM flight. I'm so disappointed that we are not picked in waiting order. No, all the others did not have priority seating or something. Passengers talk while waiting, so I know I'm not assuming this. We also heard the employees conversations about "hoping to get a seat too". None of us were told our new flight assignments were "stand by" either. If I was aware of this, I would have made another flight arrangement or could have driven to my destination! I paid for a ticket, yet employees on stand by flight get priority. Not right!"
Pros: "Flight from LGA to ATL was good. No complaints."
Cons: "Turbulence. I understand this is out of the crews control."

Cons: "Aircraft too old"
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "I had the worst experience of my life. I was trying to go to Miami for my dads funeral an made a mistake booking the wrong airport an I didn't know until Tsa told me I had the wrong boarding pass. So when I tried to have American change the airport so that I can take another flight not only were they careless about my loss nobody tried helping me rebook they just told me the only thing I can pay $200 plus another ticket for about $600 or use another airline it may be cheaper i thought that was so rude an they would have a little sympathy but they did not. I end up spending $328 an using a whole other airline for a honest mistake I'm just very dissatisfied an disappointed that American airline would do that to me on one of the hardest times in my life an I hope they never treat anybody they way they did me."
Cons: "They forgot too board snacks and not enough leg space"
Pros: "I was reassigned to another flight due to problems with the airplane"
Cons: "There were problems with the airplane. I left Miami 5 hours later after requesting to be put on another flight."
Cons: "First off, the flight was delayed. And then when I was boarding the plane I was forced to check my carry-on bag. They claimed there wasn't any overhead storage left, however when I got on the flight, there was still a lot of room. Very disappointed I had to be delayed at baggage claim for no reason."
Cons: "American Airlines is the worst airlines of ever flown time and time again they let me down I didn't get me there on time and I spent the night in an airplane they wouldn't touch down in Jackson and aborted the mission house lights on the runway was not working when any other airline already landed that night so we spent the night going back to North Carolina and I didn't even take care of hotels or get us a cabin or anything to get to the hotel so that sums it up I'm not show"
Cons: "It was late. On Wednesday Day 2 of my travel due to American canceling my flight the previous day. To add insult to injury, this flight was an hour late. I think you need a new slogan: "American - the unreliable airline""
Cons: "Flight canceled 2 hours before boarding. Was automatically swapped to a 5am red eye flight with layover. Had to find somewhere to spend the night last minute, and missed work on Monday. The airline never contacted me about the change."
Pros: "The space"
Cons: "ThE delay"
Pros: "Have been flying with America Airline for years but this is my worst experience. The flight was delayed for more than 3 hours, the cabin crew was very cold and non-chalant."
Cons: "Everything from flight delay to cabin crew non-charlant attitude"
Cons: "Decided to have a glass of wine -- had to ask the F.A. twice for my change. Dont feel they( F.A.s) were especially friendly."

Pros: "Everything went smoothly"
Pros: "New entertainment center and outlets to charge!"
Cons: "Leg room was a tiny bit constricting. I am 5'11" and my knees rubbed a bit."

Pros: "Comfortable enough"
Cons: "No films"
Cons: "We were stuck on the tarmac waiting for a gate for an hour and a half once we arrived in Atlanta. Other than that, everything was fine."
Pros: "Crew was helpful, courteous and kind!"
Cons: "Gate area didn’t have enough seats, plane delayed.... once got on had to buy entertainment unless you wanted to watch commercials on loop."
Pros: "The other passengers were understanding and patient."
Cons: "The crew was inattentive and in accommodating. A little water would’ve been nice."
Pros: "I received a fullcan of soda with a cup of ice. Not much else good"
Cons: "The entertainment system has a fee or else you have to use your device to access the United app to access entertainment."
Pros: "It was no airplane for us for another 2 hours. United does it more often then other carriers. We mad it home at 2 am instead of midnight."
Pros: "The flying part"
Cons: "Tiny seats"
Cons: "Plane was cold! But better than hot!"
Pros: "Didn't think my seat was too comfortable. Had to sit on my neck pillow. But flight was on time. Crew friendly."
Cons: "The seats are Uncomfortable. The food no longer exists. They give you two ounces of drink"
Pros: "The leg room and the great service"
Cons: "After booking my flight months in advance United change are seating and separated us. Spent hours on the phone with no explanation and no assistance. Didn't even help me upgrade when I was willing to pay for it. The worst of it all was the nonsense that their customer service kept spewing. Brushed and straight up lied to. Will do everything possible to never fly united again"
Pros: "We'll coordinated."
Cons: "The crew was not very helpful with my concerns. As well, there was a handicapped man sitting on my roway and he received insufficient service."
Cons: "4 hr delay on the flight, terrible experience never flying with United again."
Pros: "I love the check in process!! You go to a kiosk and print your boarding pass and luggage tag and then just go and hand in your bag to an agent. Soooo easy. Then no ones in line forever. I was very impressed with the little extra amount of leg space that is not always on most planes. The flight wasn't very full and the crew was kind and generous with a couple of us wanting to switch our seats around. The tvs in the back of the headrest definitely kept me occupied watching New Girl. Overall, I was very comfortable and got to my destination without getting upset or angry once...which can't be said for all airlines."
Cons: "The security line for united in Newark was RIDICULOUS! It didn't take very long to get through...maybe 30-45 minutes (which I planned for) but the line snaked through two floors and wrapped through the check in area. It just looked incredibly daunting. But I realize that there isn't really much that can be done about that!"
Pros: "Super fast boarding and flight. Actually arrived an hour ahead of schedule"
Pros: "Cost Ease of booking"
Cons: "delays (weather based )"
Pros: "Flight crew very pleasant"
Pros: "The flight was short(ish)."
Cons: "The price of flight not in line with service, comfort, anything. Full flight, small seat, some flight attendants in crabby mood, luggage hassle in Houston, didn't get it first, thought they didn't have it. Had to go to United customer service. Ended up being somekind of "jam". Took forever to get luggage. And it cost me 25 bucks extra. Shameful. Poor experience."
Pros: "Professional and compassionate handling of medical emergency. Did not mind the flight diversion to Salt Lake City. Captain kept us fully informed as situation developed."
Pros: "Boarding on time and easy Seats super comfy Tv was great"
Cons: "Staff not attentive or friendly Not many food options"
Pros: "Updates were poor as to wether or not I would make my connecting flight. When I asked if there were back up options and was told there were not any. After an hour delay I was called up and given a flight number that could be an option."
Cons: "The delays that I experienced were incredibly long. The major problem with this was the lack of comunication that I received from the airline. I could not figure out how to turn off the tv."
Cons: "Movies should be included in price or significantly cheaper. Maybe some basics included with newer movies costing $2.00 at most."
Pros: "I was satisfied,no complaints."
Pros: "Security staff was terrific , the Crew was exceptional . Overall satisfied ..."
Cons: "It was a short flight but still very tight . I couldn't take a longer flight on a 737 . Uncomfortable ."
Pros: "Boarding was well organized on a fully packed flight"
Cons: "They sold an economy class ticket to a 400 pound woman by the window seat of my row and she spilled 50% of the way into the middle seat. The woman assigned the middle switched with a relatively thin member of her own party, but the poor kid was still cheated of his space and pushed against me in the aisle seat. I know it's considered insensitive to complain about the morbidly obese, but c'mon!!! Her inability to control her weight has affected me in a material way by subjecting me and the kid in the middle to 3 1/2 hours of misery. I guess the airline CAN'T call this issue to her attention for fear of discrimination charges, but they might make some kind of compensation (free flight, or at least a food coupon, or a pass to the United Club) to assuage the injured seatmates. Also, the airline was generous with drinks, but served no snack. Nothing? Really? I really don't like United, but, unfortunately, it's the main airline flying my route. I fly them only when there is no other choice."
Cons: "Everything .. Stupid stand by tickets. Being given the run around. If I originally paid for a round trip ticket they could have handled multiple situations better .. I had 8 stand by tickets whose planes were full and booked to capacity causing me to miss 2 days of work before I finally made it home!"
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "No complementary snacks. You had to pay for the direct TV and the price of wifi has been raised"
Cons: "It never happened!"
Pros: "Couldn't hear clearly the boarding agent at the gate. Had no problem hearing the tv a gate away. But my gate agent sounding like he was under water. Had no problem hearing the flight attendants in the flight. The pilot, sounded like he was underwater. Not his fault."
Pros: "on time departure and arrival"
Cons: "seats too narrow"
Cons: "Extremely long delayed flight and was highly disappointed by the I was treated as a disabled valued customer. They keep changing the departure time's, I was left sitting in the wheel chair for several hours without any attendant checking on me, had nothing to eat nor drink for several hours, due to the fact that the attendants was extremely too busy or unavailable.. Thus far I have not received my compensation for my flight from Newark, NJ, to Atlanta, GA. I am requesting a compensation. Thanks. Respectfully, Cynthia Lopez"
Cons: "More maintenance delays."
Pros: "The flight was everything I imagined."
Pros: "Worst flying experience ever"
Pros: "I got there on time"
Cons: "Why do you have to go to Chicago when flying from FL to AZ? Defies logic. Why do we have to witness flight crew removing man with dog from flight? Why didn't anyone think BEFORE they took him into a window seat in economy that the dog wouldnt STUFF under the seat? Why didn't they make accommodations for him instead of turning back the flight and removing him from the plane?"
Cons: "The arrival/departure board at the airport still said the flight was on time when I arrived, but when I tried to check in at the kiosk it said the flight had been canceled. They booked me on the next flight the following day on a different airline but made no offer to accommodate me with a hotel room and I was forced make my own arrangements for the overnight wait for the next flight at my own expense."
Pros: "Even though space was very limited, the seats were comfortable enough to fall asleep in."
Cons: "The flight was delayed."
Pros: "Crew was polite and helpful"
Cons: "I haven't flown united in a while and was very disappointed. The Seats are tight with no leg room. You have to pay more for what would have been a regular seat. If you don't mind being cramped in a small seat, United is okay. Lucky my flight was only 2 hrs."
Pros: "Short trip. Quiet plane luckily."
Cons: "Seems unorganized with over booking or some incident that occurred on the plan regarding reserved seats being given away. Had to ride around for about 5-10 min prior to actual departure to waste gas."
Pros: "Free snacks"
Cons: "Sac to Houston, felt like we were jammed in like sardines, narrow seats, very little wiggle room between rows. As if a five-seat row had been altered to squeeze in a sixth seat, to be able to squeeze more people onto an already full plane. There is no entertainment unless one has an app of some sort on an electronic device of some sort. Nothing is about the paying customer anymore. It's all about how much money can be made....sad Second leg, a flight attendant was rude to my husband, and the boarding was confusing, as zones 1-3 were all called at once, and the attendant quit using the mic, so no one could hear her. Oh, well, hope the flight home is better."
Cons: "We had to sit on the Tarmac for 2 hours for them to change a tire. I asked for a snack because I was starving but they would not give me anything until we were in the air. Finally got something an hour into the flight which I had to pay $9 for a snack box. To top it off when I got to baggage claim my luggage wasn't there because it was still at the airport in my original departure city."
Pros: "Clean, and comfortable"
Cons: "No tv to watch"
Pros: "Everyone was very friendly and accommodating as usual."
Pros: "That the flight landed to my destination on time."
Cons: "The crew were not attentive to customers. Also, I didn't like how the flight time was change to an earlier time."
Pros: "Purchased extra leg room -- food and entertainment offered -- just didn't use."
Cons: "People carrying on luggage -- passengers getting free luggage when the overheads are filled -- time it takes for people to pull luggage out or put it in -- getting bumped with luggage -- Also the flight was delayed"
Pros: "I appreciate the many changes and reroutes as a result of the weather, were met with kind customer service"
Pros: "I was traveling with a broken ankle and crutches everyone was very kind and helpful enjoyed the trip. Keep up the good work!"
Pros: "Wondeful service"
Pros: "New plane, clean. Friendly crew"
Cons: "No frills, minimal comfort, a cup of water is free. Why do they still tell you to bring your seat back up when they don't even redline anymore?"
Cons: "Carry on bag cost of $45."
Pros: "I arrived to my destinations on time....that is all."
Cons: "The whole negative experience started with having to pay for my carry on. Yes, this was my fault for not knowing or expecting the extra $45 each way for my carry on. Water was not given during the three hour flight - you pay for all refreshments! The planes feel like a budget experience with cheap fold down trays and arm rests that slam down making lots of noise, and there is very little foom under the seat to put a small bag. My same small back pack that fits under other airlines seats wasn't even close to going under forcing me to straddle for the the entire flight. I will NOT use Frontier again. The airline feels like Alligeant that costs much less. I'll stick with Southwest!"
Pros: "It flew"
Cons: "Seats felt awful Fees brought price to more expensive than Southwest Plane departed 45 minutes late"
Pros: "Despite technical issues and a delay in boarding, they got us to the destination on time. Polite and helpful crew."
Cons: "Why do passengers have to take their luggage themselves to another conveyor belt after checking it in at LGA?"
Cons: "8 hour layover in airport, 2 hours holdover inside plane cabin on departure flight. On return flight 2 hour hold in cabin on tarmac while other frontier plane waits to take off. They were still cleaning up their mess a week later, claiming issues were due to weather while pilots admitted otherwise and all other airlines continued to fly with no issue. I will avoid this airline in the future, its not worth spending a little less to risk your vacation. Also if you have back problems none of their coach seats recline they are so cheap."
Cons: "Every time they delay in flight this is happened 20 days before on same flight"
Cons: "Delay and Carry-luggage is charged"
Pros: "Cost of ticket"
Cons: "Having to pay a fee to pick my seat, fee for carry-on luggage, and the worst thing was having to tip the Attendants for a diet Coke. This is a horrible practice and leave s a bad taste in my mouth."
Pros: "It got me there without crashing."
Cons: "I think that charging for carryon AND checked baggage is just a money-maker for the airline. Certainly not to the customer's benefit. The non-reclining seats are a negative as is the tiny little "tray" and small seats."
Pros: "I felt deceived by Frontier. I knew paying the low fair I was going to get a bare bones trip. I was fine with paying for my own drink. I cannot believe that the airline is charging $40 bags for a carry on!!!!!! Also I had to pay an additional $27 each so my husband and I could sit together. Shame on you frontier. Of given the choice I will NEVER fly with this airline again. Everyone I tell about my experience has their own negative story to tell about Frontier. I suggest you change your practice before you go out of business. My final cost was double the original price of my original ticket. Just price the ticket as it should be."
Cons: "Don't fly, they charge you for everything ,even a carry-on $65 and they are super rude. They made my brother miss his flight because he was 35 minutes before take off instead of there 40 minute rule. Don't do it !!!!"
Pros: "Attendants were very relaxed and friendly...made flying with them enjoyable."
Pros: "Crew was good Plane left on time"
Cons: "Boarding, Boarding, Boarding Everyone with a carry on being forced to pay Yelling and screaming at gate agent about baggage fees Total cluster FXXX in the gate area."
Pros: "Another passenger got a little light headed during the flight and the crew did excellent well on helping and resolving the issue."
Pros: "Liked how smooth and easy it was and the crew was funny and great."
Cons: "Cheap price equals uncomfortable seat and no entertainment. Paying for a carry on is crazy."
Pros: "Waited hours n missed my gig I was flying out for because of this delay. very upset! A little compensation would be nice!!"
Pros: "The hospitality"
Pros: "Great service"
Pros: "Leg room ok"
Cons: "Flight delayed 6 hours Flight staff not friendly Charge you for everything imaginable Their next step is likely charging for the bathroom Not helpful on phone either Uncomfortable seats (back hurt and I'm a young guy) Avoid at all costs"
Pros: "The price of e ticket was great. We saw family we had not seen in awhile due to the low price. The plane was very clean and comfortable. The crew on the plane was polite and efficient. Except for the one person at check in our experience was great and we would fly again."
Cons: "When we arrived at the check in desk there were no lines. but we were told we would have to wait 30 minutes to check in. By that time the lines were very,very long! If we would have been allowed to check in when we got there a lot of time would not have been wasted standing at check in then the baggage x-ray and security check.!! The extra fee for bags is also not appreciated."
Pros: "everyone did a great job - especially one of the gals at the check in counter and boarding area - witnessed her handle several frustrated travelers with courteous professional ease. (did not catch her name, but overheard she was from el Salvador) - thanks Frontier, you Rock"
Pros: "The boarding process went smoothly, The flight attendants were very plesant and courteous. The pilots appeared very competent, i.e., smooth take off and landing. They also made up 25 minutes of the departure delay en route to Atlanta. The Airplane was clean and comfortable."
Cons: "The aircraft was ready to go on time, however, the baggage handlers were slow at getting the bags to the airpplane thereby delaying the airplanes departure for nearly an hour. Upon arrival at Atlanta Hartsfield the bags were slow getting off the airplane. The combined effect was nearly an hour and a half delay in my flight. The bags were coming coming on to the baggage turnstile at the rate of about 1 bag every 15 seconds. It appeared that the baggage handlers were having a work slow down. ."
Pros: "On board the plane, the man next to me had a medical crisis event. The flight attendants on board responded immediately and ensured that he received medical help as soon as we landed. They did an amazing job staying calm."
Cons: "Had to sit on the runway for almost 2 hrs because the gate was not clear. Had to wait for almost an extra hour for checked bags at baggage claim."
Cons: "After sitting on the tarmac for an 1.5 hour delay on the flight's second leg (they said they didn't have enough staff to load our luggage under the plane AFTER we were seated and strapped in just sitting there wondering what's up), it was beyond irritating that they then instantly went into going down the aisle once we took off charging us for snacks and drinks. Then there was another delay once we landed because they told us there was another Frontier plane that mistakenly went to our gate. Really!?! So no one knew we were coming?!? Had enough. Not a fan of Frontier right now and the supposed "savings"!"
Pros: "After making me pay for a small suit case from New Orleans to Charleston and charging me $40 for it, they still lost my bags. Wasn't able to receive them for another day and a half. If you are going to charge for something I intended to bring on the plane, at least make sure you handle with care and don't lose them."
Pros: "Flight was for my son. Tried to checkin and was not allowed to, since it just changed to the 45 min mark before departure. Ticket was auto cancelled. Went to southwest and booked a ticket on their direct flight which was to leave 10 min later than the Frontier flight. It actually left 8 min early, while the Frontier flight was still boarding."
Cons: "No obvious warning that Frontier requires checkin 45 min before departure or they auto cancel the ticket. Received an email from kayak 3 hours before departure, no warning there. Did not notice any warning when buying the ticket. Frontier is at the bottom of my list, for choice of carriers."
Pros: "Couldn't believe that I had to pay for carry on. Totally misleading the customer. Would never fly Frontier again. To"
Pros: "the flight was short and sweet, slept through the whole thig"
Cons: "Drink prices are terribly pricey and the seats arent comfortable, but you cant beat a cheap quick flight!"
Pros: "This is in no way a bad relection on Frontier. Kayak sold me the tickets for a certain price and when I started to check in for my flight I had to pay additional for seats and carry on luggage. I ended up paying $102 more for two people on my one way reservation the night before the flight. Kayak should at least make their customers aware that this will happen as it is a lot of money!!!! The flight itself was on time, with a curteous and funny crew. No complains there."
Cons: "So many added extra fees. Hard seats that don't recline. No food on plane."
Pros: "The seats were of newer material."
Cons: "Newer but very hard seats. I'm 6'2" and the seats didn't recline and my knees were hitting the seat in front of me...a lot. On a red eye flight, this was torturous. The seat backs did not go high enough for my head either. The flight was delayed 40 minutes as well."
Pros: "I liked the amount of space I had in my seat that I voluntarily paid to have."
Cons: "The seat itself was not very comfortable. Also, a member of the crew was either not masking her disdain for her fellow crew members very well, or has a wicked case of resting-bitch-face, it was kind of off putting."
Pros: "We got to St. Louis early"
Pros: "The crew treats you better than crews on more expensive airlines, and they have a great sense of humor. You can tell that positivity and how they interact with passengers is a priority in the hiring and training process. A lot of people have complained about having to pay extra for carry-ons and other luggage, but Frontier is REALLY clear about their policy for baggage when you book, so these people shouldn't have been shocked. It is a great deal for people who only travel with one small bag, and I'm glad that there is an airline that offers such cheap flights for light travelers. If you need to take a lot of luggage, you can add the cost as you are booking and then decide if it's the best deal before you finalize payment. Overall, it was a very good experience. You aren't going to get a ton of extras for free on this airline, but if getting to point B from point A with a nice flight crew is all that matters to you, Frontier is a great deal."
Pros: "Very good!!"
Pros: "One of the crew members was extremely friendly and helpful."
Cons: "I was not made aware at any point in my booking process that I would be charged for a carry-on, a carry-on?!?! And that the carry-on would cost more than a checked bag. They also charge for water, I mean seriously a cup of water, not a bottled water, just a cup of regular ole' water. You also have to pay additionally for an actual seat assignment on the plane. I will be sure to never book them again! I could have flown with a better carrier for the same price after the nickel-and-dime routine i had to go through with Frontier. On top of everything else, the flight was delayed!"
Cons: "You should let your kayak users know that frontier doesn't allow carry on bags the way most airlines do and that you have to pay $30 for one. It's deceiving"
Pros: "- Price. It's the cheapest way from A to B, which is the only reason I would fly again."
Cons: "- Seats were very uncomfortable. They do not recline unless you're first class. - Nothing besides the flight is included in ticket price. Drinks, snacks, blankets, in-flight entertainment, even baggage fees (unless you're military) are all extra $$. - "First class" is laughable. The seats are a different color and can recline a few inches. That's literally it."
Cons: "Always delay"
Cons: "Monster brat screamed the whole way. Parents shrugged because "it would be wrong to discipline the little darling". Most of the passenger wanted to throw the brat and breeders overboard!"
Pros: "Seats are not very comfortable."
Pros: "Liked the meal and next flight coupons."
Pros: "I have to say I love the price. I visit my daughter in Las Vegas every year and it cost her so much money but your flight price was amazing. Because of Frontier I got to see her twice this year and I only plan on using you."
Cons: "The line to check in was so long but then someone from Frontier came and got all the customers who checked in on line already. That made a big difference."
Pros: "Had a delay"
Pros: "$59 one way"
Cons: "Seats to small, not enough leg room"
Cons: "The seats were horrible. if someone taps on the back of your chair you hear everything. Not comfortable."
Pros: "The crew was very warm and friendly. They truly made it an enjoyable experience."
Cons: "I was a little dismayed to see that I would be charged for a carry-on bag. To carry on one bag round trip would cost me $80, when I only paid $60 for the entire flight."
Cons: "Spirit Airlines was a mess, we got told the wrong information to stand in a line that was too long, and we were not going to get through even though we were an hour before our flight. I went back to the lady, and once they called our flight at the 50 min mark and said that we need our bags checked now. The line agent again told me to go and wait in the line, only to wait and be told we missed our window which was what I was trying to tell the lady earlier. To add fuel to the fire, it seemed three of the people were arguing and then switched to Spanish when it got heated. Lucky, we were able to go out on Delta an hour later without issue and went well. I'll never fly Spirit again for it was a horrible experience and that's from someone who flies's various airlines and 160,000 miles a year! After many years of flying this is my first complaint. However, I would warn others to spend the extra few dollars to go with another airline when traveling."
Cons: "Why dont the let the back of the plane board before the front so I dont have to bump everyone while I am making my way down the isle. They nickle and dime you for everything."
Cons: "Seats are NOT comfortable!! Flight was delayed, not worth paying less"
Pros: "I am handicapped and everyone was most helpful."
Cons: "Seat comforts Leg room limited. I do not like the A319"
Cons: "DID'NT APPRECIATE THE HIGHER BAG FEES"
Pros: "They were on time and the return flight crew was friendly."
Cons: "The bag fees for me to check a bag and carry on a second bag was $100, so my inexpensive fare was $200 more. On the flight out the seats were very uncomfortable--plastic non adjusting seats. Thank goodness the flight was only four hours long. While I understand that drinks and snacks are "add ons" and a profit center, passengers have to buy expensive water and snacks with the gate vendors. Surely the airline could stock a few gallons of water for dehydrated passengers? The cost of my two bags would have covered bottled water for everyone on the flight."
Cons: "Well, they charge for everything... Even coffee!"
Pros: "clean new plane friendly staff"
Cons: "The tray tables are too small"
Cons: "Flight gates closed hour early were not able to be opened no refund no other flight to get on nor email to let me know it was going to be closed"
Pros: "Flights went well, comfortable and within appropriate time frame. Crew was pleasant and helpful."
Cons: "Website not very user friendly which results in having to check baggage at airport and higher cost."
Pros: "That the plane was really on time."
Cons: "No good service. Service try to sell you overpriced snacks and drinks. Carry on bags $55, Drop off bags $52."
Pros: "Flight was smooth, on time, and comfortable. The pilot was great with keeping us updated."
Cons: "Being charged a baggage fee whether or not you had a bag to check or bring with you. They charged an extra $5 to bring it on board yourself vs them throwing it under the plane. $65.00 is ludicrous to charge for a bag that isn't checked!"
Pros: "The pilot was fab"
Pros: "Once flying it was smooth"
Cons: "Delayed twice, lots of waiting"
Pros: "The experience was pleasant. Nothing to complain about. The crew was polite and the plane was clean"
Cons: "The cost for things such as pop or snacks was a little high."
Cons: "Flight kept getting delayed and the crew was not communicating what was going on. Also, the seats are pretty uncomfortable."
Cons: "I purchased the Spirit ticket because it was ~$30 cheaper than my other options. I was okay with the connecting flights for the savings. Silly me, I didn't check the fine print-- Spirit charges to CARRY ON a bag. Both ways. The $30 I thought I saved was quickly erased when I ended up spending $90 to carry a duffel bag on the plane. All FOUR of my flights were delayed by nearly two hours. Seats were thin, sparsely padded, and cramped."
Pros: "Most of the crew was nice, with a couple exceptions. Overall it was a decent experience."
Cons: "Plane was supposed to board at 2:45, but didn't even arrive at the gate until after 3:00, and still had to unload. We were finally on board by 3:30 (departure time) but the pilot blamed it on getting the paperwork late, and said we now had to wait for fuel. During that time, a couple storms moved in, and we ended up sitting on the tarmac for over an hour. It's one thing to be late, but it was a pretty pathetic attempt to divert blame to the crew at the airport."
Cons: "The process was laborsome. I couldn't understand the peope on the phone when I FINALLY got to speak to someone. They were very unhelpful in trying to solve 1 EASY problem. Theiur system is messed up when it comes to accepting correct passwords....then having to change it....then waiting an hour for the temporary...It was a disaster. Cheap isn't worth it."
Pros: "Easy ck in boarding and on time."
Cons: "40 pound weight limit on luggage."
Cons: "Flights were near on time but seats are very uncomfortable. Flight attendants in their own world and talking together since they had nothing much to do. Will not book a spirit flight again. Will go with the comfort of Jet Blue."
Cons: "It would have been nice to know when I bought my ticket that I was going to need to pay extra for everything. I didn't really wind up saving money in the end. The seating is TOO "cozy". I would not fly with this airline again unless it was a very short flight and I could fit all my luggage in a backpack."
Cons: "Very unsophisticated passengers"
Cons: "The flight was delayed and no one notified us at the gate or gave us an update The flight attendants were extremely rude she kicked my bag under the seat because it wouldn't fit"
Pros: "On time and smooth flight"
Pros: "Boarding was smooth..plane on time....like the price...crew cordial."
Cons: "Was fine"
Cons: "the entire experience"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "On transfer from customs to this flight Spirit could not accept the checked baggage before 4 hours before the Atlanta flights departure. Also passengets were arbitrary allowed to bring liquids onboard"
Pros: "Cheap fare"
Cons: "They will charge you $45 for a bag at check in that is free at the gate.Then they won't refund you money."
Pros: "Notification of the cancelled flight was provided in a timely fashion. Alternative travel options were offered and provided to us at no extra charge to us."
Cons: "When providing us alternative travel arrangements, Spirit staff took the easiest alternative flights rather than looking a little longer to provide alternatives that more closely matched our original travel agenda. Instead of a direct flight from Philly to Atlanta with a two hour travel time, we were offered a 6 hour ordeal with two stops, Boston and Charlotte."
Pros: "Flight attendants were great! Landing was so smooth I couldn't tell the wheels had touched down. No problems from beginning to end, thank you!"
Cons: "It was all good."
Pros: "The best part of my flight to Atlanta was the price. The service for this leg from checking in through landing was excellent. The seats were pretty comfortable (although I'm not sure they reclined - couldn't see how they would), flight attendants friendly and capable, and I appreciated the announcement re where to find our checked bags."
Cons: "I didn't order coffee during this leg, having ordered it on my trip out and finding that it tasted like instant machine coffee.... I had an aisle seat, and the mother and young son next to me talked loudly during the entire flight, making it hard to concentrate in my reading in spite of wearing earplugs. But this has nothing to do with Spirit - simply their ignorance and lack of consideration and my being unwilling to speak with them about it."
Pros: "On time, super quick boarding, super quick deplaning, comfortable seats"
Cons: "Have to pay for food and drink but that's on on a short flight"
Cons: "Having to pay for a drink. Seats don't recline."
Pros: "short flight took off on time and arrived early."
Cons: "Hidden fees after you book the flight! The flight was delayed 3 1/2 hours! The cabin was filthy... upholstry was dirty, carpet was stained, there were pieces of paper, plastic, and food on the floor. There was dry cereal on the floor and in between the seat where I sat. I doubt that I will fly Spirit airlines again!"
Pros: "I really loved the concise manner of boarding and seating. The attendants were friendly, informative, and quick witted. I did not experience overbooking or being too cramped."
Cons: "I didn't think this flight would make you pay an arm and a leg for what other airlines just include for free! And to top it off, they only accept cards. How inconvenient. Also, I had to pay 105 dollars to check a bag and bring a carry on. Who doesn't allow you to check bags??"
Cons: "I would have loved a free cup of coffee. You can't be saving THAT much. The flight attendants are bored besides......"
Cons: "Folks....this was my first time flying on spirit and all I can say is never again! It all started a couple weeks before the actual trip when I called their customer service number (it's a toll number NOT 1-800) and come to find out their call center is located in Asia. Talk about a language and culture barrier. The individual on the phone was not able to help me out due to their lack of speaking basic English. The trip itself started with a cabin that was disgustingly dirty from the previous flight and yes you WILL get buckled and dimed for everything! Want a Coke? It will cost you 3$. Need a boarding pass? 5$ In fact, to be able to carry on a small average sized suitcase it cost 45$. Seriously! 45$ just to carry on a smal suitcase and that price is just one way! Do yourself a favor and fly with a legacy carrier instead Delta, American, or United). Spirit has horrible customer service, dirty airplanes, and thy will nickle and dime every possible dollar from you! That's all!"
Pros: "Overall I had a good flight. Everything went as smooth as it should have."
Cons: "Paying for seats that recline is unreal and paying $40+for a checked bag and a carry-on is quite ridiculous. The maximum weight checked luggage weight is 40 lbs which is quite difficult when your a woman traveling for a week."
Pros: "The gate agent was very short and snippy at 5:30 am. So, that kind of makes everyone else in a bad mood. Too bad, because nobody was really awake and was looking forward going to the cold North. She could have made it a more pleasant boarding time..."
Cons: "Never fly this airline unless your going to your in laws and really were looking for an excuse not to go. The baggage fees and seat fees are over the top and the airline cancelled my flight on Dec. 25 and said they were unable to accommodate me until Jan. 4th. Seriously. This airline is a joke!"
Pros: "The 1st flight was late, however no one was at the counter to explain why or say what the expected time of departure was. The crew were friendly."
Pros: "First check in Lady was kinda rude about my tiny carry on bag. Then someone else sat in my window seat. So I asked to move to an empty one.. Stewardess said wait till plane is in the air. Which I love take off and landings the best. Then she told me to move from 9d to 3 a....by the window! Then some guy in 1c was rude about sitting off his electronic s. Said stewardess snapped at him which she didn't.. And the first check in lady was also rude about pulling up my artinery. For the flight. . then the Airport only had one lane open for the longest time with 100 people waiting to get through there. I have bad knees. So standing that long was Painful to me."
Pros: "Boarding was quick, on-time. The plane was very clean. Crew was nice."
Cons: "Switched boarding area without notice... had to walk around to find correct boarding area."
Cons: "Some of the staff was very unprofessional and unpleasant to the flyers people were talking about it. I don't think I will fly it again."
Pros: "On time, smooth flight, great landing. Hilarious flight attendant who made safety review a lot of fun, I mean, why not!"
Cons: "No big deal but took a while for bags & we were told the incorrect carousel."
Cons: "They charge way too much for carry on bags. It's less to check a bag, but I don't recommend it. I was on a two hour flight with no layovers and the front of my suitcase was badly damaged. It looked like they were dragging it on the pavement. The seats aren't very comfortable and don't recline. This airline is always trying to sell you something. From the ads on the overhead storage bins to the pilot telling you about the exciting credit card offer. I don't plan on ever flying with this airline again."
