Cons: "I have no complaints"
Pros: "Flight was smooth"
Cons: "More leg room"
Cons: "K a y a k. Booked tickets on WestJet for us, but we were never told that check in and reservation was to be manage through delta so checkin was difficult and we ended up with poor seats because we were not given any advance notice"

Pros: "I liked the wide variety of movies and snacks available."
Cons: "The kid behind me wouldn't stop kicking my seat."

Cons: "This was a 2 hour flight, some entertainment would be nice..."
Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "No video screens, the choice of snacks is very weak"
Pros: "Good movies; nice crew"
Cons: "Originally, they were putting me on a flight connecting through Atlanta. However, I was traveling with my brother and there was only one seat on it. After looking again, we were put on a much better route through Detroit. I did not have a seat on the second leg and was stressed that I could get bumped. I made the flight but was given a middle seat. Since I have clostrophobia I began to panic. My brother sacrificed his exit row seat for me. He had booked through Delta. I wondered if he got better treatment because of that"
Pros: "That I arrived safe."
Cons: "My seat didnt recline my back was in a lot of pain so was my neck. After getting to L.A at 9:52 a.m didn’t get out of the plane till 11:05 then the baggage claim was noted on carousel 2 when in fact it was carousel 3 when I asked a worker she said “I dont know ma’am” waved me off and kept walking. Terrible."
Pros: "New plane with great entertainment arrived 30 mins early"
Pros: "Arrived ahead of time"
Pros: "Early warning about little overhead compartment baggage space. Short flight made shorter in air."
Cons: "No enough carry on baggage space"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and we arrived earlier than expected"
Cons: "Seats are too tight and too expensive to upgrade."
Pros: "Not much, hardly anything"
Cons: "The service in First Class, absolutely terrible"
Pros: "The time and the cabin crew were helpful"
Cons: "There was nothing to not like"
Pros: "The plane was an older model but staff allowed main cabin to use 1sr class bathroom."
Cons: "The choices of free snacks were limited. They should also give more than 1 package of peanut."
Pros: "It was very quick! Great service."
Cons: "We need more food options and a little bit more legroom."
Pros: "Crew was friendly, flight ran on time."
Cons: "Can you make the seats any smaller? Cabin space is tight and for people who suffer from claustrophobia it makes it difficult traveling. More cabin space with raising the fares would be great!"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Seats very uncomfortable no room to move"
Pros: "Service was good. Was upgraded for more space."
Cons: "Intertainment unit was not working correctly. Locked up after movie was over. No offers of any sort from crew about issue."
Pros: "No waits, front desk personnel were helpful about baggage accommodations. Clear communications."
Cons: "No issues."
Cons: "delays after delays"
Pros: "direct flight from bdl to cun."
Cons: "reclining seats that doesnt give much room to person behind recliner"
Pros: "The plane was new and very comfortable. Free entertainment and plug for charging electronics. Love this airline!"
Pros: "Pilots and crew did an amazing job during unstable air coming into Pittsburgh. Great job."
Pros: "Great pilot.."
Cons: "Jam packed too small and the lady flight attendant was to bossy and not that welcoming, she was more interested in being more of a drill sergeant than the comfort of the passengers"
Pros: "Our original flight was delayed and Marika, at the Delta gate of another flight to the same city, was able to get us on the flight that was going to our city. We were so grateful to get home before the winter storm! We appreciate your staff and the help their quick, efficient manner to get us on a new flight!"
Pros: "Having just exited the AeroMexico flight that came across as unprofessional, it was refreshing to get on a Delta flight. It was not really exceptional, but it met my expectations. The Delta agent on the telephone on the day before our flight WAS exceptional, as she tried valiantly to get us checked in to a flight that had been changed (by Aeromexico) several times. Delta was also exceptional in helping us retrieve our luggage after AeroMexico lost it."
Cons: "The noise by the engines in the back section on the Delta flight was rather unbelievable. As a physician, I think it was likely physically damaging to our hearing. If this interior aircraft noise can’t be avoided, I think earplugs should be offered to passengers in those seats."
Cons: "They said we would get there on time even though we took off late so that what we told our ride. Ended up about 30 minutes late. Did not like that."
Pros: "Courteous staff, boarding process was okay once it got started."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 1.5 hours. Very turbulent flight. Tight seats."
Pros: "very short flight, flight was comfortable"
Cons: "Plane was small so carry on space was at a premium, but everything fit"
Pros: "Crew was good. Flight was early."
Cons: "Poor booking experience."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "These people are reprehensible. They refused to cancel and refund our tickets when the bride-to-be in a wedding we were supposed to go to was diagnosed with cancer and the wedding was cancelled. Every customer service person we dealt with was uncaring, incompetent, and completely useless."
Pros: "Great help from gate agent when a delay in connecting flight would have missed the last flight. Agent put a great new agent it together better than the original."
Cons: "Delta is the best"
Pros: "Flight was on time, flight crew was kind and helpful, pilot was smooth and kept us informed of the flight status."
Pros: "Crew was very professional and friendly."
Cons: "Seats too close together."
Pros: "Majority of the crew was pleasant"
Cons: "One flight attendant was EXTREMELY rude to me for no reason"
Pros: "Who could ask for more?"
Pros: "Good do to Delta Staff"
Pros: "I would like the airline service to do more for our veterans. Especially the 100% disabled veterans"
Cons: "Seats not comfortable enough"
Cons: "One crew member was running late. So we could not start boarding until she got there. Which created a chain reaction of events making the flight late. She was not a pilot. So why couldn't we begin boarding while waiting on her?"
Pros: "Crew was nice and friendly."
Cons: "Plane was not cleaned well from the previous flight and looked dirty from being overlooked for so long. There was garbage in my seat back pocket and the overhead areas all looked dirty as if they were never cleaned at all."
Pros: "Friendly staff. On time departure and arrival."
Cons: "The plane was completely packed despite the COVID pandemic. A stranger sat next to me on the plane (distance of about 6 inches, not 6 feet). What social distancing? And yet they conveniently said no food/drink beverage for safety reasons. Good way for the airline to save a few bucks. Other airlines (like JetBlue) block out adjacent sears and give snacks in individual bags but this... I flew several times since the pandemic began and this was by far the worst. What a joke of an airline. Never flying them again"
Pros: "very organized boarding process"
Pros: "Crew seemed friendly and considerate"
Cons: "Flight from SLT was delayed by weather, so our flight left almost one hour late."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing. The flight was delayed to the point to where I had to stay overnight in Tampa because I would have missed my flight, connecting flight in Philly."
Cons: "Made it so I would have gotten out of here on time to make my connecting flight, and not have to spend another day in Tampa"
Cons: "The seats are very uncomfortable"
Cons: "The wifi didn't work. No seatback everyone's screens, only a screen over there middle row of seats. Maybe update your 20 year old livery."
Pros: "After the initial delay, the female desk agent got us on another connecting flight without a problem. Second flights attendant was also great."
Cons: "They boarded the plane, only to tell us they had to de-ice, which is understandable. However, after waiting 20 min for the de-icing that never came, they made us get back off the plane because of mechanical issues. The captain/pilot was rude to the woman working the desk over the radio, to the point where she had to leave the desk and go speak to him in person (she knew we could hear everything.) That conversation is also how the whole line of people was informed that then knew about this mechanical issue since the night before, and chose not to fix it before boarding all of us. After getting to Philadelphia later than expected, we were forced to pay for hotel food that was horrible and overpriced. Only to then have our plane be delayed AGAIN because of mechanical issues, again the pilot not giving much information to the attendant she was faced by a room of 40 angry people and had no answers. The departure time slowly crawled out longer, and the only reason I knew was because of having the American app. Information/communication on all ends was poor. I usually fly Allegiant, which is notoriously “cheap,” and I’ve never had an experience like this. Happy my boyfriend has flown with American before and knew to give us an extra day so we didn’t miss the wedding we paid $800 in airline tickets to attend. Just disappointed."
Pros: "Food wasn’t awful."
Cons: "Late. Very. Delayed at departure, then parked on the tarmac for most of an hour, perhaps more, to get to a gate. several of the cabin attendants were very unhappy people, grumpy, snappish and harsh. Old plane, no frills. (Center screens for entertainment, no usb charging in main cabin) come-one—use this poor old guy for short haul stuff."
Cons: "Flight cancelled and had to travel 60 miles at my expense to a different airport to get another flight same day"
Pros: "Both flights were great. No issues at all with either of the flights or airports. Layover was just long enough to get through customs and get something to eat."
Cons: "I was rebooked and the process between American and British Airways was very confusing. I was lucky to get a seat on the plane which I had to pay extra for even though I booked in January for an August flight. Also it was crazy that there was no inflight entertainment for such a long flight."
Pros: "The food was good....they kept bring us more and more."
Cons: "There wasn't a choice of movies and we all had to watch the same one with the screen in the middle of the aisle. I had to have my head at an angle and it got tired after a while..... We also had to pay an extra fee to choose seats that were together....that was a rip off!"
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "Nothing I didnt like"
Cons: "7.5 hr flight from Lisbon to Philadelphia on a dingy old plane that looks like it hasn’t been retrofitted in close to 20 years, with no charging ports for electronics, which seems insane in this day and age, especially for such long flights. Had no in-seat entertainment systems either, and only offered news and sports on the American wi-fi service — not their usual lineup of movies and TV."
Cons: "The flight was delayed and then the airport in Philadelphia "wasn't aware" that we were coming to it took forever to get off the plane. I would have missed my next flight if they didn't wait for us. Also I couldn't check in online beforehand, which was frustrating. Also I waited in line at the British Airways desk to check in and it was a long line. When I finally got to the front I was told I had to check in at the American Airlines desk and I wish I had been told that earlier. One staff member was rude when I asked him to repeat the food options."
Pros: "AA got me home safe."
Cons: "Entertainment was nonexistant. Most movies were unavailable and those that were would start and then say “no longer available” monitor did not work. I was not the only passenger with issues. Many could not get system to work. Antiquated and/or poorly maintained. Also, announcement made it seem as if you had to pay for wine/beer/spirits. I wasn’t drinking so it didnt matter but at other times this would have been a hassle. Never had this on an international flight. Flight was okay just not top drawer like it used to be. Cost cutting measures have impacted the brand. Would not say it is first tier. Dont mind a “no frills” flight if it results in lower cost to consumer (aka Southwest Airlines)"
Cons: "The connecting flight from Raleigh to Philly was cancelled so we missed the flight to Manchester. We booked , through Kayak, with British Air and paid extra for premium economy and the actual carrier, American, doesn’t know how to process a refund and no such seats are available on our rebooked flight 24 hours later so it has been frustrating."
Pros: "Three beer and three wine selection made the flight go by quicker. Food was better than expected based on pasta or shepherd's pie options."
Cons: "Full flight with uncomfortable seats, no tv/movies at each seat. Our AA four-hour flight after this was much nicer, with in flight entertainment. What?! I haven't flown on an international flight without entertainment at each seat in 10 years... And I have flown to over 40 countries since then."
Pros: "The in flight staff was very friendly"
Cons: "Our 2nd flight was changed by the airline, causing us to have a 6 hour layover in Philadelphia instead of a 2 hour layover. Then when we ask about changing to a different flight they told us that the original flight we were supposed to be on (that we booked over 8 months ago) was completely full so that’s why we were moved, and there were no other flights available to switch to. So we accepted that. But when we printed our boarding passes, we saw that our seats were now separate from each other, and they were both middle seats! I don’t understand how booking my tickets so far in advance still resulted in these issues. We were finally able to get an aisle and window seat (not near each other) but both flights had poor to little entertainment, which I wouldn’t have expected on such long flights with American Airlines. Really was letdown. :("
Cons: "2 hour late departure. could not get there story strait on why the delay, finally they went with weather delay. steward reminded me of a bunch of people unhappy with there jobs. need to work on customer service"
Pros: "Nothing - the flight from Chicago to Philadelphia was delayed by about 2 hours. Luckily, was able to get the flight switched to a Chicago - London direct flight."
Cons: "The connecting flight from Philadelphia to Manchester would've been missed. So, American Airlines booked the same flight for 24 hours later. Luckily, they offered a different flight. Due to the flight changes, the prepaid ground transportation from Manchester to Leeds wasn't used. Transportation from London to Leeds had to be purchased at a much greater additional expense."
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "The flight was late due to maintenance and caused us to miss our connecting flight to Chicago. American Airlines customer assistance at the airport was absolutely terrible. They were rude and inconsiderate as they kept suggesting to fly standby. We shouldn't have to fly standby when it wasn't our fault why were late. They told us our bags would be ok going to Chicago and they we would make the flight, but we did not. I do not know why didn't wait for us considering there were 8 others that also missed the connecting flight. We had to fly to Denver and stay overnight with no luggage and catch a 7:00am flight to Chicago. The last surprise I received was my damaged bag when I got back to Chicago. Thank you for making this trip memorable in a terrible way. I will never book or recommend Kayak or use American Airlines again."
Pros: "Otherwise great flight experience..."
Cons: "But touchscreens were so unresponsive to touch it was almost impossible to navigate between movies."
Pros: "Nice flight, great leg room, staff was friendly and flight was on time."
Cons: "No baggage controls from seat 18 to 28 no bags would fit. As we exited all the front rows we're waiting to get there bags stored in back of planes overhead bins. That's just not right, especially when they charge us extra to take a bag for overhead bins storage."
Pros: "Good service, great entertainment."
Cons: "Small seats, older aircraft."
Cons: "Very disorganized. Why was I put on this terrible American Airlines plane? My headphone outlet was broken, the plane was very uncomfortable, the boarding was disorganized. I thought I paid for a British Airways flight?"
Pros: "The plane was newer, drinks are available. Seat only reclines half an inch or so so get ready for that."
Cons: "Crew on aa is the worst bunch of entitled fools, almost as horrendous as united."
Pros: "Because this flight was NOT full, my wife and I had the entire center section to stretch out. This made our 7.5 hour flight amazingly comfortable. The Airbus A300 was a reasonably new aircraft. Everything was clean and looked good. The food was exceptionally good. My wife and I both commented on how good the food was (my wife stated, "it was the best airplane food ever"). The main meal, the hotbox snack, and the late in flight chocolate ice cream were ALL good. The staff were great, friendly, service oriented, nice people."
Cons: "Navigating through Heathrow"
Pros: "We were notified of the pending delay in our flight from Athens to Philly very promptly on the morning of the 10th. We immediately called and spoke to a British Airways agent and also a supervisor who was understanding and kind enough to accommodate us by reserving seats on a later connecting flight with American Airlines from Philly to Phoenix. We did not receive a confirming email and ended up calling back. We were then told that Vouchers will be waiting for us at the Philadelphia airport with our names."
Cons: "When we checked in at Athens airport there was no information available for our connecting flight in Philadelphia. The AA counter was chaotic, the agents were rude and had changed our seats to 2 separate areas. When we arrived in Philadelphia there were no vouchers waiting for us. The only thing that the agent could find were seat assignments . We stood in line over an hour waiting for her to figure out what had happened and almost missed our connecting flight . Even though my daughter was in a wheelchair with a brace on her leg and in pain, the agent at the counter was not very empathetic at all. The agent also kept saying that this was not correct somebody made a mistake to tell us we were booked and that person will get in trouble. Eventually she spoke with the supervisor and gave us 2 boarding passes."
Pros: "Roomie seat"
Cons: "Made me Put my purse in back of plane"
Cons: "Boarding-we boarded class 9 and had a carry on that was to big so all 3 personnel yelled at me and my husband with my daughter in my arms very loud and disrespectfully " YOU CAN NOT BRING THESE TYPE OF BAGS ON THE PLANE!" Mind you 3 people are saying this while other people were also waiting to board the plane! So I quickly say we do not need 3 people to tell us 1 thing and especially yelling at us like we were kids or criminals because it felt like we must have broke the law the way they treated us! That experience was horrible and ruined my liking for AA"
Cons: "Staff was rude and accoutable for delayed flight and lightning striking plane while we were in the air"
Pros: "Positive spin...positive spin... the crew is fine."
Cons: "You would think the better the technology, the better the comfort level. But well, this is not the American brand. It's all about squishing you into a walnut size so that they can pack a cart load of them on the plane Or they said you can pay up and get comfortable. And you would think the price of a ticket would go down because the whole fuel is cheaper than years ago. Ha. Turns out you need to pay extra to meet the historic standards"
Pros: "Flight wasn't full so I had the row to myself and got to stretch out. Great selection of movies. Decent food."
Cons: "One FA seemed visibly annoyed with me; I'm honestly not sure what I did. I am a FA for another airline; didn't identify myself as such but always make sure to not be "that passenger." During two beverage services she did not ask me if I wanted anything but simply looked at me with disdain and sighed loudly. She wasn't rude; just not friendly and I never once saw her smile. She seemed tired and annoyed. I understand that feeling. I've been a FA for 16 years, still junior at my company, but it reminded me how important body language and facial expressions are when we work hospitality and customer service in the public eye. I hope everything is ok with her and I'm sorry if I did something that irritated her. I didn't get her name."
Pros: "Was on time, flight attendants very nice and professional"
Cons: "flight was overbooked good thing people volunteered to give up seats"
Pros: "Flight crew was peofessional"
Cons: "First flight was delayed. Delay not related to weather. American refused to provide hotel. the provided hotel and meal voucher for a fellow traveler on same flight who missed his connection. I was told he was accommodated because he is priority. When asked how I become priority I was told "he spends more money and flies more often." To me that means as a customer I am not a priority to American Airlines."
Pros: "Food, OK legroom, complimentary wine & beer on a US carrier"
Cons: "Barely functioning ancient touchscreen system"
Cons: "Flight was changed. Didn't get the seats I had already picked out. Woman on flight was very rude to me when I asked where the restroom was. NOT a good experience over all."
Cons: "The flight was delayed, at not fault of the crew on board, however the flight attendants did very little to update the passengers on connecting flights and did not try to help in making the connecting flight aware that some passengers would be delayed. I missed my connection by MINUTES (I saw it still taxied at the gate) and they could not hold the plane for 5 passengers connecting. Awful service and procedures."
Pros: "Equipment was an A330. I was seated in Row 11 and had priority boarding. As a result, I had considerable leg room and not trouble finding overhead space. Seating in the back has several inches less "pitch" between seats. A330s provide a very smooth ride."
Cons: "Food: Salad was good, you could taste the arugula. Chicken, once you scrape off the barbecue sauce, was decent. The rest of the lunch did not seem worth eating. The best option if you are hungry is to either eat in the terminal or bring something you do enjoy with you. The movie selection had nothing you likely have not seen already. Be aware that sometimes PHL moves slowly. We waited over 5 minutes for the plane door to open. Bags took about 40 minutes to come up. There were no lines at immigration. Connecting in less than 2 hours can be iffy."
Pros: "My 17 year old daughter flew American Airlines to attend a wedding. She recently had spinal surgery and is not able to lift more than 5lbs. After being assured by the airline that staff would help her with her carryon luggage, she was abandoned and ignored by both flight attendants. Each flight attendant referred het to the next, so she is walking back and forth tor their amusement. Tears rolling down her face, finally an elderly passenger helped her. Then the staff gave her attitude the entire flight. She may appear healthy, but she was cut from her neck to her waist and had two rods inserted along with bone grafts. I just cannot believe how awful she was treated."
Cons: "The customer service was terroble. My daughter was humiliated."
Pros: "The TV and Movie options were good. The food was good too. The staff was very attentive."
Cons: "My luggage was misplaced, but I got it delivered to my house by Wednesday evening."
Pros: "Flight crew very welcoming, flight was pleasant."
Cons: "Seating a bit tight. Didn't offer any snacks only ice water."
Cons: "Plane was very warm upon boarding due to issues with auxiliary cooling but informed it would change as engines turned on . I sat in row 20 and it was very cold during flight. Flight attendant inquired about comfort. It improved for about 10 minutes and returned to cold state . Noticed that one attendant put on some kind of jacket due to coldness . Nearby passengers retrieved blankets from their carry on baggage. Glad I had at least a light jacket to throw over me and that my legs were partially covered. Guess it's better to be too cool than too hot. Otherwise. It was s great flight ."
Cons: "The flight from Phillie to Albany was very warm. Stewardess genuinely apologized."
Pros: "The pilot tried to make time up in the air after we left late and it was the very first flight in the morning."
Cons: "I don't understand how a flight can be delayed and late by 40 minutes when it's the very first flight in the morning due to the plain not starting right. We have to be there early to check in why would pilot and attendants get there early to make sure plan is ready and everything checked before starting on boarding process. Heck drive the plane around to test everything. Also what's up with 1 small cookie when people pay hundred of dollars for a delayed flight. Treat everyone like first class. Better seats. Seats are way to small. And maybe lunch should come with the flight or a bottle of water and a full bag of chips. We pay a lot for those flights. After all it's so expensive to by food in the airport then you wait and find out the flight is delayed."
Cons: "My son and I were scheduled to leave Providence to Philadelphia on Monday at 6:05. Flight went through a series of delays until we were finally informed that our flight would not make the flight departing Philly to SF. Rather than fly to Philly during the DNC, we decided to SPEND ANOTHER NIGHT IN PROVIDENCE and take the flight out the next day. This part of the trip caused me to lose a day of work and spend more money on a hotel and meals. This was very poor planning on your part since there were flights flying in and out of both places, but your company was short one aircraft that would have gotten my son and I home on time!!! This was my last flight on American Airlines and I will be sure to spread the word to my friends and family that you have become too unreliable!!"
Cons: "Chaotic boarding Multiple delays Unfriendly ground staff"
Pros: "Comfortable fast trip"
Cons: "The flight was delayed because the inbound aircraft arrived late, but United didn't notify me until I was already at the airport. They would have known about the delay for hours already by that point, so I could have rebooked on a different flight. Instead I had to spend the night by the airport in Hartford or risk missing my connection and being stranded in Chicago."
Cons: "What happened to complimentary snacks?!"
Pros: "I would love to take off and make it to my destination next time instead of sit in the airport for 8 hours strung along by the employees saying the plane will be fixed."
Cons: "Crew was fantastic on United!"
Cons: "The seat in business class was small."
Pros: "Crew was phenomenal!!!! So attentive and professional. Great customer service"
Cons: "Ended up waiting on bags for the better part of 30 mins"
Cons: "Check in was with a new trainee and she was not sure how to put in our TSA - we got sent around to other people quite a bit. Plane was late and we almost did not make our connection in Dulles"
Pros: "All the flights were on time and the pilots terrific. They came on with information and advise. I especially liked the pilot on the travel from Hartford to Denver. he was humorous but very polite and congenial."
Pros: "Courteous crew. Smooth landing. My only compliant is that we have to purchase in-flight wi-fi."
Pros: "Very little"
Cons: "Crowded planes, problems with efforts to upgrade, no room in the seat"
Pros: "I liked the comfortable seat and the empty seat between myself and the other passenger in my row. Staff were lovely and very friendly."
Pros: "The trip home went without any delays and was quite pleasant. Everything worked out well and I have high praise for the service"
Cons: "Everything was fine. Nothing to complain."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 4 hours.... missed my next flight, too dc, then rerouted to Philadelphia,and transferred to another airline, got to Dayton at 5 pm. I haven't had a vacation in four years, this was not the way I wanted to start. This was a trip from hell."
Pros: "Everyone was pleasant."
Cons: "Delays due to staffing issues led to missed connection and 7 hour wait for next available flight."
Cons: "No complementary food is provided. Just some mini snacks."
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "I was stuck between two very large men on a flight where there was apparently no air conditioning. I could barely breathe for how hot it was."
Pros: "Boarding passes on my phone"
Cons: "The seats on the first plane were hard as a rock"
Pros: "The roominess of the sets on this plane were excellent and the stewardesses were very friendly and accommodating ."
Pros: "I like the television system"
Pros: "Early boarding for families"
Cons: "Ridiculously cramped bathrooms"
Pros: "Fast unloading of plane."
Cons: "Slow boarding, no snack choices."
Pros: "All of our flights left on time & arrived early. We had wonderful flight attendants as well."
Cons: "Arriving in Chicago we had to wait to dock the plane and were not able to get up and use the restroom."
Pros: "From the start our trip was awesome. Everyone from the shuttle driver to the pilots to the ground crew the flight crew Etc were extremely friendly and very very helpful. I was traveling with a first-time flyer and he was impressed extremely impressed this is the second time this year that I've flown with United and I will continue to fly United thanks to all of you for help making this trip perfect"
Cons: "Lack of planning. Even though it was specified that I was travelling with a senior citizen. There was a short time between conecting flights. Having my elderly mother having to rush from one gate to other with no assistance whatsoever. Barely making it to the gate on time and luggage getting lost. Still to this time which is around 24 hours later from the flight, there is no response about her bags. Insulin was on checked luggage. She experiencing serious knee pain due to the fast walk from gate to gate. Fast walk being mention since she is old and can't run. Besides that, flights were good."
Pros: "Connection and boarding went smoothly."
Cons: "Flight was canceled and both service desk and over the phone customer service took over an hour so I paid out of pocket to rebook with another airline."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and courteous."
Cons: "Flight was overbooked. Also, passengers crowded the boarding area which made it difficult for me, as a passenger with a disability, to navigate and board easily."
Pros: "Everyone with United were courteous and professional. The flights were on time as well. Would fly with them again"
Cons: "PA system delayed the flight to cancellation. Waited all day until they said we should consider switching our flights. Missed our connector. Had to red eye in to an entirely different location and drive straight to work because the mess. Awful."
Pros: "I liked the fact another passenger was willing to switch seats so my husband and I could sit together."
Cons: "I didn't like the attitude received from the person at the desk at the gate. My husband and I looked at our tickets and were surprised to see the seat assignments I had chosen when I purchased the tickets were not there and instead the boarding pass said "see agent". She then assigned us seating in separate rows and handed us new boarding passes. No explanation. We looked at them and handed them right back and said no thank you, we had purchased tickets together. She said, "this flight has been oversold" and motioned for the next passenger to step up. This really upset my husband who told her, "Wait, we are not finished discussing this!" He went on to explain to her we purchased our tickets together with seat assignments - Together. She then said if we didn't reclaim them when checking in, 24 hours prior, the seats then became available again. What kind of logic is this?! Ugh! If I wanted to be treated like cattle I would have stuck with Southwest! We. It's back to Southwest for us. At least they are up front with their rules."
Pros: "Flight crew was pleasant."
Cons: "Very confusing boarding, multiple flights in same gate with no obvious line. Plane interior very bare-bones, not updated in any way for comfort or ergonomics. No entertainment or food available, though it was a short flight. Plane responded terribly when we hit significant turbulence."
Pros: "The weather in CT was inclement but the pilot made up time getting to DC and the connection to Seattle arrived ahead of schedule!"
Pros: "It was overall a wonderful flight"
Pros: "The point where I got off the plane forever"
Cons: "Literally every thing else"
Pros: "The United app was awesome so I could watch movies on my phone during the flight."
Cons: "My first flight was delayed and caused me to miss my next flight which forced me to have to stay over night in a hotel and take a new flight the next morning. I had to pay for all the extra costs of the hotel, taxis and food. It was very frustrating that they didn't hold the plane just a few minutes since there were a lot of passengers ( including myself) who ran to the gate."
Cons: "Flight was canceled and United offered no reasonable options for returning home that evening."
Pros: "Good price"
Cons: "No leg room even for a short person like me!"
Cons: "people packed like sardines...6 across...really?"
Pros: "sufficient space for luggage overhead"
Cons: "too much chatter among crew, especially during boarding and disembarking rest rooms too small - claustrophobic additional, and roomier rest rooms could help wish announcements could be delivered more slowly, better enunciated, and less slurred; often cannot be understood; one often has to guess the meaning more smiles and friendlier tones and attitude could help having window seat can be very inconvenient when leaving one's seat"
Pros: "Quick short sweet flight"
Cons: "Boarding late"
Cons: "Was told no flights for two days after flight was cancelled. Then was told we needed to switch airports via taxi on our own. Then switched to Delta airlines where I had to pay another $60 to check my bags."
Pros: "They checked my carry on at the gate in Hartford and said it would go through to me final destination and it wasn't in Cincinnati when I arrived. In fact that was yesterday and I still don't have my luggage."
Pros: "30- minutes early"
Cons: "Boarding everyone in wheelchairs prior to or after everyone else. They brought 5-6 people down in wheelchairs while we were all lined up on the jet bridge and it created unnecessary chaos."
Cons: "Anithi g"
Cons: "7 hours flight delay"
Cons: "Plane is filthy Please clean the aircraft!"
Pros: "Better chairs"
Cons: "More leg room"
Cons: "It took over an hour for bags from the flight to make it to the baggage claim"
Cons: "I didn’t like the $90 carry on baggage fee that I was suprised with at check in. And the fact that I arrived to the airport 3 hours early only to be told that frontier personnel do not arrive until exactly two hours before the flight."
Cons: "The flight was delayed due to weather, which is fine, the delay was 45 minutes, not a big deal....Here's the but...when it came to boarding time, they announced that it was not going to be boarding by zones and that everyone should just get on the plane. On top of what appeared to be a mass exodus, or perhaps something you'd see in a third world country, those people who paid more $$ to have carry on bags, in zone 1 and be able to board first were most certainly not feeling the value. The gate experience was not well organized or orchestrated. After getting off the plane, our daughter realized once in baggage claim that she left her backpack on the plane. Not being experienced in this area, we asked for help. A police officer told my wife to go to Frontier office, where there was no one in the office, someone else said have them paged. There was no white courtesy phone in the area that was operating, so she went to Southwest and asked if they could page someone to come to the Frontier office and they said no, walked to next terminal to find a working courtesy phone, paged someone to Frontier and within 5 minutes ,10 people showed up. Asked if someone could help. They radioed to the gate that a passenger left their bag. What the rep should have said was that they called the gate, hopefully someone locates and if they do, they will bring it here and we will check on it in a few minutes. The person didn't say a word, 5 minutes later my wife asked what happens now. After a nice sigh and eye roll, the Frontier rep says if they found, they bring it. My wife asked would it be possible to see if they found it instead of just waiting around here for bodies to appear. The bag was eventually found and returned but the experience was just now a good one to say the least."
Cons: "Horrible delay , uncourteous attendants , not even drinking water is free More or less every airline of America is like this except Southwest ."
Pros: "I thought the pilot was funny over the loud speakers, the crew was friendly."
Cons: "The seats were a little uncomfortable I was lucky to have the row to myself but couldn't stretch out because of the oddly placed arm rest."
Cons: "After being delayed on the first leg of my trip, we arrived in Denver being told to go to a particular gate. Once there we were told it was moved to another gate. This happened a total of 4 times! Again the flight was delayed. The pilot/co pilot made a negative comment on the PA about the airline after apologizing for the confusion. I was not given the opportunity to choose my seat. When I checked in, I asked to change from the middle seat I was assigned to, to a aisle seat to accommodate my long legs and severe knee arthritis. The attendant at the desk looked at my boarding pass and exclaimed "well, your flying ECONOMY so I guess you'll just have to deal with it". Drinks that are complimentary on Alaska (soft drinks, juice , water etc.) were charged for. The attendants completely skipped my row and we were not offered anything. The attendant did provide me a diet cola at no cost when I brought it to her attention. All in all a miserable trip home, in such contrast to our flight there on Alaska Airlines at the same cost."
Cons: "Again, flight was at 8pm, received 3 delayed text messages, started boarding at 940pm, last text received was to be delayed till 1015pm but we were already on the plane, but didn't leave till 1040/1045pm."
Pros: "Check-in, Boarding and on time performance; friendly staff"
Cons: "The seats are really, really uncomfortable. Backs don't recline and the cushioning is so thin, I wondered why they bothered to put it in."
Pros: "On time flight."
Cons: "Very clean."
Cons: "There was a lag time from when we boarded and when we departed and there was no reason given for the delay. Unfortunately we also experienced a lot of turbulence during the flight (no one's fault) but our almost two year old ended up getting sick and neither seat back pocket had any bags. Luckily the lady next to my husband had brought her own and gave them to us. We were in the back of the plane and asked for a trash bag and or napkins and they ignored us at first. My husband and I tried to stay positive and laughed pretty much the whole time because these things happen. The crew didn't help us until decent (about 20 minutes later) and seemed upset that some got on the floor as they were complaining that they would need to use a special cleaning agent. Our son was such a trooper and wasn't fussy or crying. His stomach just couldn't handle the turbulence. The only positive about our flight we're the wonderful passengers sitting around us!"
Pros: "Nothing at all."
Cons: "The outbound flight was delayed only three hours. The return flight was delayed three hours, after which we boarded and waited. After another hour we taxied to the runway and returned. I am grateful we did not take off with a defunct left-engine. We taxied back to the airport and de-planed--but only after being instructed not to talk to the other passengers. (Really.) The flight was not cancelled, even when the plane was towed to the hangar. Finally, after six hours, Frontier offered a refund--as they had no interest in placing us on another airline that was going to the same destination. I rented a car and drove from Charlotte to Philadelphia to retrieve my own car from the airport so I could arrive home 15 hours after my scheduled arrival. Frontier couldn't care less. NEVER again."
Cons: "Did not like that everything including seat assignment cost money. 1st time flying Frontier and did not know to expect ala carte pricing for literally everything. If you are on a budget and looking for the least expensive option you really can not tell what Frontier will cost in total."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Seats don't recline and are very uncomfortable."
Pros: "The attendants who operated the wheelchairs were fantastic!"
Pros: "The markup on a can of soda is near 200% when selling it for 2.99. Lower that price and your sales will actually increase which will then rolli into more credit card sales."
Cons: "Every other airline offers you peanuts and a drink. Frontier nick and dimes the passenger for everything."
Pros: "Non-stop flight from Punta Gorda to Philly was convenient for the guests with which we stayed to drop us off. We got bumped up to 1st class when 2 seats together could not be found for my 13 yr old daughter & I."
Cons: "Very old plane 1st class didn't feel very 1st class. Uncomfortable seats Had to stow personal item in overhead due to 1st row & not storage from seat in front."
Pros: "Flight was on time, crew was friendly, plane was clean."
Cons: "Didn't find out about carry-on charges till flight was booked. Do your homework about luggage first! It just makes the flight seem cheaper than it really is. Not the most comfortable seats, but what do you expect for the price. 2 & 1/2 hours to Fla is about all you can deal with in those seats, for longer flights pick a more comfy plane."
Pros: "Very cheap flight. Ticket of price of $197 Denver to Philly round trip. However, once you factored in the luggage charges, the flight came to around $314. We were delayed two hours leaving Denver, and then when we got to Philly it took an hour and a half for them to get our bags to the carousel... unfortunately that wasn't the end of it. They somehow managed to put our flights luggage in the wrong baggage claim areas, so collecting our bags was a nightmare. The worst part was after I saw how much they charged me for a checked bag and a carry on, it came out to be as much as the American Airline flight that I hadn't booked in order to save money."

The worst part was after I saw how much they charged me for a checked bag and a carry on, it came out to be as much as the American Airline flight that I hadn't booked in order to save money."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "This was by far the worst flight I have ever had. The flight crew was the rudest group of women I have seen on a plane. They over served the three people who were drinking straight vodka. The entries row was yelling, swearing, dropping the F word and singing country songs louding together and never addressed by the staff. They were out of red and white wine. Over all disappointed"
Pros: "Love the airline staff. Always looking out for your comfort."
Cons: "Seats a bit cramped."
Pros: "The flights were cheap and arrival was seamless. The crew is always friendly and lovely, as are the captains. The seats are super small, but it is an economy airline, so it makes sense. They are adequate for comfort, but I would not suggest long flights on them since they are not super soft or spacious."
Cons: "Frontier does a number with charging you extra fees for everything after you purchase your cheap ticket. For example, if you have a cary on item, that is an extra $40 (and typical standardized carryon luggage is too big to fit) or you can check in your bag on-line for $35. Then they ask if you would like to sit next to your party, charging you an extra $27 per seat. If you check in early enough, you are more likely to actually sit with the persons you are traveling with, so don't pay for that. You also are charged for drinks, and snacks on the flight (no biggie, but you should know). On the flight back to my state of origin, there was a flight delay of 2+ hours (for a valid reason of de-icing, but that was not communicated to us, we found out from the flight crew.). The Frontier app did not refresh to tell me the change, the website did not reflect the correct delay-of-flight change, and I got an e-mail telling me my flight was delayed about an hour after the initial delay. We called to confirm when our new boarding time was and could not get through the prompts. Google told me my flight was delayed and had more accurate information than the actual airline. Buying from this airline is very misleading- if you need budget, this is convenient, if you want a bit less stress, pay a bit more and go elsewhere."
Cons: "Every time I fly one of these budget airlines I remember how horrendous it is. You have to pay for every single little thing including a seat assignment, which just feels like extortion, and the bag prices are ridiculous. The seats are plastic chairs and they don't even recline. On an overnight flight that's just ridiculous. Next time I'll remember its not worth the $50 I'd save on the ticket."
Pros: "Spacious seating"
Cons: "Overcharged for checking bags, seats didn't recline, no tray table, no entertainment, charged for drinks, didn't send me a confirmation email. I will not recommend this airline to anyone."
Pros: "Great crew. Very friendly. -- Ontime boarding and good flight. - The flight back left and arrived earlier than scheduled. Exceptional treatment by the crew on the way back. They asked if I minded moving up front to an extended seat to allow to people to sit together. -- I got a more comfortable seat up front and the flight attendant kept thanking me for me flexible. -- Very appreciated to them"
Cons: "More up front knowledge about the true cost of the flight. -- Seat selection and carry on costs let to an an additional $82. -- $6 each way for selecting a preferred seat I can stomach, but not $35 for a carry on. -- Very disappointed in that"
Pros: "Efficient boarding on and off the plane."
Cons: "The $75 fee for overweight bags is unreasonable. It should be more like $10 for only a few pounds over 50."
Pros: "Boarding was quick. Enough room for carry on items."
Cons: "Seats are tight/uncomfortable. Flight was delayed with no notice until we looked at flight boards after getting through security."
Cons: "Earlier flight from same gate was extremely delayed and no one at Frontier seemed aware that they needed to reassign our departure gate. Finally announced the new gate at the time of our scheduled departure - didn't start boarding for some time even then. Departed an hour late (but arrived only 30 minutes late)"
Pros: "The flight was over a half hour late, the baggage claim was late, the seats were uncomfortable. I also did not like that you get a surprise bill to pay for your seats and check in bags (which are normally free) 24 hours before the flight. No point in having lower prices tickets if I have to pay an additional $80 before I can board. Very disappointing I do not want to fly Frontier anymore."
Pros: "They delayed the flight thrice and closed the gate 20 minutes before the boarding time."
Pros: "I appreciated that after you were charged for a carry-on bag you were actually put into the first boarding group. This allowed those of us with carry-on bags the opportunity to stow them."
Cons: "I didn't like all of the additional charges to get a seat assignment, to carry-on a bag, and sodas on the flight. The flight was delayed for over an hour. The group of passengers joked that it is typical to have a one hour delay on all Frontier flights. I wish I had know that going into it."
Pros: "The plane was clean. The pilots did a nice job."
Cons: "I've never flown Frontier before, but was truly surprised that you charge for carry-on luggage. It's definitely a deterrent. The plane was 3 hours late. As for comfort, my seat didn't recline. Ugh."
Cons: "No one explained to us why our 915 flight was delayed until 2 in the morning. And I'm sure the crew was just as exhausted as we were, which is completely understandable. However, aside from one stewardess, they showed how miserable they all were which in turn made the passengers more irritable. The flight home was much more tolerable."
Cons: "There is no warning from Frontier that customers will be charged for both checked and carry-on bags. Along with being charged extra depending on what seat the customer chooses (up to $30 additional charge). It's a good thing I went online 24 hours before my flight or I would have been very upset to get to the gate and have had to pay $60 for my bag. There seems to be an up charge for everything after the ticket is paid for, including food and drink. The seats in the airplane felt like glorified plastic lawn chairs."
Pros: "on time no frills. Point A to point B A+"
Cons: "no free beverage is lame."
Cons: "The woman at the check in counter was rude, and by the end she had me in tears my bag was fine on the fight in but she insisted on charging me 60 dollars on the way home I had no money or credit cards on me so I had to beg a stranger for money, and when I gave her the 60 dollars she said with a grin on her face we don't accept cash at that point I broke down not knowing what to do she announced one minute to board and finally they let me on I was a mess by then! Never again will I fly Frontier!!!!!!!!!!! Robin M. Cahill 215-669-1108"
Pros: "Price of ticket"
Cons: "Had to pay for carrying on luggage had to pay for seat and no TSA"
Cons: "Extra costs for picking a seat once I checked in online was not something I felt should happen."
Pros: "The seats were pretty comfortable and the flight attendants were excellent."
Cons: "Having to pay $2 for a non-alcoholic drink is just silly. I had to pay for my party to sit together but other people that I know were on the same flight and did not have to pay extra to sit together. Our flight out of Philly was three hours late departing and we were told a "reason" only an hour before we left. Not in any rush to fly Frontier again."
Cons: "Despite that the plane had clearly not arrived, the desk people indicated we would still be on time, and we were told that we would make up the time in the air. After waiting for 1.5 hours on the tarmac, we were 1.5 hours late to our destination. The seat were very small and not very comfortable and did not recline. We were told when checking-in online that we would have to pay $16 - $50 to guarantee that we would sit next to each other (only 2 people). Also there was a steep charge for checking and even carry-on luggage! The airline also lost one of our bags on the return trip. Pretty terrible experience overall."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed fromv9:40 to finally taking off at 12:50 no reason given. A voucher was promised but never received!"
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."
Pros: "They were smaller so they gave more room between sections"
Cons: "They did not have a table- which made it hard to hold the computer. That was a disappointing problem."
Cons: "My flight was delayed by more than 3 hours. The representative at check-in told me that the flight was coming from LaGuardia airport and was delayed due to bad weather (which I can still believe to be true despite any evidence of severe weather when I checked online). No one (from the check-in desk to the boarding gate) had any information about the delay and we were sitting clueless at the gate as the departure time kept changing frequently. No frontier crew was present at the gate to answer our queries or to provide reasonable respite in terms of water or meal vouchers at a very cold airport (heating wasnt working for some reason). This was aggravated by the fact that there are no complimentary drinks/meals on the flight. I would also like to point out a cheap trick that the airline tries to fool passengers with. They try to charge you for your seat when you check-in online. You have to skip seat selection to avail a seat at no extra cost. This on top of carry on baggage fees. It doesnt sound like a budget airline to me. A cheap one, for sure."
Cons: "More comfortable seats"
Cons: "I reached at check in at least 1 hour before the boarding time. I was told, no more seat is available. They wanted me to fly the following day ( Monday). I did not pick a seat @ booking time, I was told that my seat was not confirmed-? I have never heard that excuse before in my life !! I do not have the luxury to not show up at work. After a good deal of arguments ( this is an understatement- they refused to listen to me initially as their flight was overbooked) I was offered a different flight arriving about 5 hours later on a different airport (Newark instead of Philadelphia). I flew from Philadelphia & had left my car at Philadelphia airport! Since I had no choice, as I could not miss work, I had to take that flight. Needless to say -arriving at midnight on a different airport & then go back to the airport I flew from , to pick my car, is another story !!"
Pros: "Comfortable seating with the $50 increase for the bigger seats with extra leg room."
Cons: "Nice flight...but the two plus hour delay was awful."
Cons: "There was absolutely NO legroom. They cram so many seats on to the plane that they obviously don’t care about costomer comfort at all. My knees were rubbing the back of the seat in front of me. And the seats don’t recline either so my back is killing me and and I wasn’t able to rest and relax at all."
Cons: "I am tired of your airline and have vowed to never use you guys ever again. I've used your airline on multiple occasions and every flight is always delayed. I recieved numerous emails of the delay and when i get to the airport I'm told," Sorry your flight is actually leaving on time." Then of course it's my fault because I was suppose to be at the airport at the original time, but I was there 2hrs prior to your delayed email time. Now I'm stuck at my destination for 2 more days. Now I miss days at work, miss appointments I had, etc..... I am absolutely done with your airline.... Thanks for nothing and I will be sure to let all know on social media of this constant problem I continue to have with your airline"
Cons: "Spirit is a terrible airline and got charged +$80 to check my bags (after already paying for bags) because they were over 40lbs. Usually weight limit is 50lbs. so didn’t save much money using kayak overall. Will never fly spirit again."
Pros: "This was a rough flight flying into Winter Storm Toby. The crew kept everyone calm and the male flight attendant (didn't catch his name) was hilarious. Thank goodness for the very skilled pilot getting us home safely"
Pros: "Flight took off and arrived on time."
Cons: "Navigating the Spirit Airlines web site is like dealing with a used car salesman; you have to watch every single step of the way, because they will add unnecessary, unwanted charges if you are not careful. After this trip, I will never fly Spirit Airlines again. I wish I had booked a 1-way flight, rather than round trip, so that I could return on a decent airline. There is a reason that Spirit gets a 1-star rating on www.consumeraffairs.com/ If I have to fly to Atlanta to Philadelphia again, I will take either United or Delta."
Cons: "I had to postpone my trip and was hit with all kinds of penalties from Spirit Air."
Pros: "Spirit airlines was awful. They have an extremely unfriendly crew coupledo with no room. They don't have anywhere in front of you to place a book or water. They charge for water, coffee or chips. That might be almost acceptable if they were cheap, but they charge like any other airline. Bad experience. Americs, Delta etc. You're all better"
Pros: "Everything was spectacular. Thanks."
Cons: "Nothing was bad. Thank you Spirit"
Cons: "Seats are hard as rocks. There was no available wifi so I couldn't listen to music. It was an overnight flight and the flight attendants kept the lights on high for the first hour or so. They charged me an additional $30 fee for my bag being 49 pounds. Thought the limit was 50. They charged $3 for water. When we started our descent with about 45 minutes left they again turned the lights up to blaring. The best part of the flight was when it was over. Never again. Only Southwest from now on.. Crooks"
Cons: "everything - customer service,"
Cons: "Baggage fees are so high that I would rule out flying Spirit in the future."
Pros: "Good leg room, good air, check in kiosk at rental car plaza was convenient. Flight was on time and good pilot communication."
Cons: "Seats too thin by 3" for 200lb man, arm rests too short by 2", water not offered to anyone complimentary, staff appeared tired and stressed."
Cons: "Everything with spirit was excellent. The problem was the Philadelphia baggage belt The belt kept breaking so it took them over an hour to figure out to use a different belt!"
Pros: "Flight was non stop"
Cons: "All the additional charges for carry on and paying for my selected seat. Will not fly this airline again. by the time I paid all the added $174 of cost it was the same price as any other airline. The epic logistic failure at Ft Lauderdale. I got to the airport 2 plus hours early and still barely made my flight in time. I wanted to get something to eat but I couldn't because I had to wait in two lines to get my boarding pass, because the Kiosk would not print my ticket. In addtion to Spirit overloading TSA in their terminal. My worst flying experience ever, and I fly a lot!"
Pros: "The plane was roomy"
Cons: "The advance check-in had trouble, I was unable to chose a seat."
Pros: "Only if they had little tv's this would be the cheapest best plane ride ever"
Cons: "That you had to but food and no entertainment that would be better"
Pros: "The plane and crew was top notch."
Cons: "Couldn't register my bag before I arrived at the airport, so I had to pay extra. $50 for 20 lbs is a lot."
Cons: "I got an email from SPIRIT confirming the flight,when I got to the airport at 5.30 am I was told the flight was canceled."
Cons: "My MONDAY MORNING flight was cancelled, and I was given a new flight arriving WEDNESDAY afternoon. Then, THIS FLIGHT WAS ALSO CANCELLED. I could have lost my job being absent so long! Thankfully I purchased an American Airlines ticket from the American website and was able to return home in a reasonable time frame. HUGE WATE OF MONEY."
Pros: "not much...will not travel again on Spiritl"
Cons: "1) Seats not comfortable to sleep, no push back (was on red eye flight) 2) Delayed coming back from Vegas 3) I was trying to select a seat next to my friend and had to pay for getting seats together 4) Pay for every possible service (glad i don't have to pay for bathroom as of now) and not as cheap ticket to Vegas. 5) Felt like being treated like school kid (disciplined) when read about how baggage fares change with time to $100 @ gate. (too much). Too much to worry when I want a pleasure travel... 6) I will never travel on spirit for more than 2 hr flight time and that too when i have a great deal (that compensates for seats, luggage etc.,)"
Cons: "They have hidden fees that Kayak is not telling you when you buy their tickets. They chrged me $57 just for small carryon bag and then you have to pay for the seat separately to board the plane. What is your ticket for? Reason to get to airpirt and ready yourself to pay what ever they ask. One has to pay additional fees to get boarding pass....."
Pros: "Gate crew for boarding was the worst"
Cons: "It was very difficult to pay a full fare of $340.00 and then to pay for my small carry on. Even to have water in flight you have to pay. Yes, I understand that for a cheap ticket it would be expected but my ticket was not that cheap. The rude man that checked my baggage at the door in Detroit, after MCO allowed us to take our carry-on, spoke to me very condescending. Stating that "we in Detroit take baggage seriously" and even further taunt us that he would happily wave a booking fee and put us on a flight the next day when we get the baggage money. He spoke loudly in front of other passengers. It was an awful experience for my first time traveling with spirit. I traveled a lot and was never treated so rudely or without compassion as it was 4 people traveling together including a small child."
Pros: "The staff was very polite knowledgeable and always smiled and some joked with made the flight a pleasure."
Cons: "I didn't know that the bag check was 40 pounds most are 50. I booked though a 2nd party and was not informed about having to pick a seat and the you had to pay for a carry on. They do not tell you about this be for you check out and also if you booking for 2 you may not be together on the flight unless you. pay before hand and then pick your seat. Also when looking for a phone umber on the web site and you hit contact us it sends you to the help and doesn't not show a phone number to talk to a person. The flight was good. I don't think that you should have to pay extra to make sure you are next to your family when traveling"
Pros: "Comfort, clean seats"
Cons: "Fare cheap but all the 'musts'made it more than any other airline: $9 Online fee; $25 kiosk fee (which didn't work and had to pay $50 fee to check in with clerk; had to check bag approved for under seat/carry on (12"c12") and since kiosk didn't work, charged $60 for 1st bag, even though I paid $60 for a 'first checked bag' and 2nd bag should hAve been cheaper. It was TSA agent who told me I would be required to check the bag by Spirit as it didn't meet carry on criteria and if I didn't check now, would be $100 at gate. I told her that I was traveling back with same TSA approved (and Spirit online rules) and she became rude and rejected my bag (and did a complete body search) so, I was forced to check the bag or miss my flight. I asked her and the Spirit clerk (3) if this was a TSA/ Spirit racket with kickbacks for TSA and/or Spirit and NOT on of them laughed, smiled, or denied this question. Mever again will I fly Spirit airlines or recommend to anyone!"
Pros: "the flight itself was fast and not bumpy at all, other than this everything else was not great."
Cons: "hated everything about it and will not be flying with them again, also they seemed more inclined to get you to buy stuff, you dont even get a complimentary cup of water, how sad."
Pros: "Original price"
Cons: "Additional Fees"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled. I was supposed to fly out of Las Vegas on Sunday and after cancelling the flight, Spirit did not offer any other options to get home that day. I wound up booking with another airline and had to call out of work the next day because it was nearly impossible to get home. I'll never fly Spirit again."
Pros: "Spirit offers a very reasonable set of conditions for a minimal ticket price. It'd no frills and the seats are adequate but they don't recline and legroom is at a minimum. If you are flexible enough to tolerate the limitations it's a great deal."
Cons: "I thought it ended up being very expensive. I paid for my ticket. then had to pay for baggage and seat assignments. I think I will pick a flight that has it all included next time."
Pros: "Boarding went smoothly and we landed early"
Cons: "This flight was over 4 hours, and they didn't even offer a cup of water, much less other beverage options and food. I didn't expect the caliber of entertainment you'd find on a larger airline like United or Southwest, but this flight didn't even offer wi-fi. I'm rating the crew mediocre mostly because of the lack of food/beverage, which I'm not entirely sure whether or not they have control over. Also, I heard more than one guest ask a flight attendant how much time we had left, and her response was typically pretty condescending about how we've "only been in the air for x amount of time." Truly, I'll never fly Spirit again. They try to make it look less expensive than other flights until you're smacked with a $40 fee for a standard carry-on, which brings it right up to the price of everything else. I can only hope they improve with their growth as a company."
Pros: "It was s very smooth flight."
Cons: "Couldn't get sat to recline."
Pros: "I've never been on an airline that was on time let alone 20 mins early. The doors closed once the plane was full and took off early and landed 30 mins ahead of schedule. I really can't say enough about this airline."
Cons: "absolutely nothing"
Pros: "The boarding process was smooth and quick. The planes are new and clean. Crew is nice. Direct flight from California to Philadelphia."
Cons: "The seats are small and very uncomfortable. The fold out tray is extremely small as well as the arm rests. Seats don't recline at all. Everything costs money. You pay for your seat and you pay for your luggage. $46 to carry on and $42 to check luggage. Seats are anywhere from $10-$50. I don't feel I saved money by flying spirit."
Pros: "The leg room in first class"
Pros: "We got there without crashing...."
Cons: "Terrible customer service. Everyone seems angry. Flight was over an hour late,but status still listed it as on time"
Pros: "short line in checking"
Cons: "1. WEB did not work for checking-in on-line, In airport more passengers told the same problem. But Spirit did not want to hear it, and charged highest price as check-in in airport..2.There are no option in check-in for e-mail. If you don't have print...your problem. 3. My seat was dirty, the crew told that they don't have vacuum cleaner, and don't have empty seats. 4. Since flight was late, we had to seat in airplane for 2 additional hours , In Spain pilot in similar situation offered free Champlain, Spirit did not offer even water."
Pros: "Everything went smooth! From boarding to landing it was efficient, which is exactly what I expect from this airline."
Cons: "Hidden fees everywhere. The money saved is no where close to being worth the discomfort and unreliability"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled one hour before boarding and the re booking agents would not assist me to place me on a flight anywhere. They were rude and did not refund me any additional money to cover my travel expenses to and from the airport which was 60 since I live an hour away. They yelled at me when I asked for places to go and did not cooperate at all with me. I missed a family reunion this weekend as a result"
Cons: "Since I ordered through kayak I wasn't allowed to add additional bags. This cost me quite a bit more money. Then I called prior to online booking and the customer service agent was horrible. Deceived me into to pay more money for bags. She was also very rude and not helpful at all. This was a horrible experience. I am not even going into the flight. I was seated next to someone that was probably close to 400 pounds. He spent most of the time in my seat. Now I am sympathetic to obese people but Spirit should have placed him in one of the two seater rows or something like that. It was an absolute miserable experience."
Cons: "Everything. I'm surprised they didn't charge you to go pee."
Pros: "Charge extra for everything. The websites did not allow me to check in ahead of time, so had to do it at airport. Had hour and a half delay, but we're not told why. Will avoid flying with them!!"
Cons: "The agent inside Atlanta airport"
Pros: "they cancelled our first flight...and did not offer any assistance other than a refund. on our second flight we went to the airport in advance of the flight and NO one was at the counter to help us. We had to wait for one hour to get a assistant to wait on us! I will never fly with this airline again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
Cons: "My flight to Philadelphia due to "weather." No notice, no effort to place us on another flight. Typical Spirit which is why I try to avoid flying with them whenevet possible. My mistake."
Cons: "Both times cancelled"
Cons: "My flight to LA was delayed by a systems crash, we spent 2-1/2 hours at the gate before departing. My return flight wagon time and I was looking forward to a relatively comfortable flight home, as i'd paid extra for an exit row seat on the aisle. instead, the person who sat next to me man-spreaded into my personal/seat space, shoving his shoulders into my ribs and making the 7 hour cross-country flight, exceedingly uncomfortable. When i voiced my complaints to him, he replied in an entitled and indignant fashion and redoubled his effort to invade my personal space. What's worse, is that this man was wearing a Spirit Airlines uniform and presumably, did not pay for his seat. I will never fly Spirit again."
