The boarding process was uneventful and normal. The plane was on the smaller side and a tight fit. Most people had to plane side check their luggage. The pilots seemed pleasant. We waited about an hour from leaving the gate to actually taking off with no information from the crew as to what was taking longer than normal. The flight attendants were informative but aggressive about the mask policy and spoke on the PA system often and for long periods of time. The attitude of the flight crew about several issues made the passengers tense. We arrived about 30 minutes behind schedule but safely.

A REVIEW BASED ON FACTUAL EXPERIENCES ON FORIGN CARRIERS AND THEIR SERVICE COMPARED TO AA and Other US CARRIERS, FIRST CLASS WHAT ? YOUR price for what not much more then a premium class seat AND ALL YOU OFFER IS a can of coke and a pkg of Fig Cookies ? Seriously. All 4 of my flights were first class, Joke of an offering, and each one sucked, I am American and I have flown over 800,000 miles and over 650 flights in 4 years, out of all these flights I've only flown US Carriers 12 times and I know that is a factual number. Jet Blue I will fly again, they act are a good and ran and they know how to take care of their guests AMERICAN AIRLINES JUST SUCKS Cathay pacific, Eva Air, Air Asia, Asiana, Korean Air, ANA, Thai Air ways and many more, I fly business class and every one of these airlines blows away these Sad Poorly ran US CARRIER'S, ,

Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Great comfortable seats"
Cons: "Too much turbulence"
Cons: "Wheel got stuck during takeoff. Had to fly standby to get home. Originally told I would not get home that day. It was 8 am"
Pros: "Easy boarding process, friendly crew member and smooth flight"
Cons: "The flight was delayed which impacted our connecting flight."
Cons: "Original flight came in 1.5 hrs late. Missed connection, then sat on the tarmac for 2 hrs before taking off because the pilot was late."
Pros: "Very competent flight attendant."
Cons: "Flight was a half hour late. Pilot could have communicated with passengers. Gate 35X at National Airport is a terrible situation. We go down stairs to deplane, then wait for a bus to take us to the terminal. Not acceptable."
Cons: "Staff friendliness. Not forever late. Not losing kids stroller"
Pros: "Staff was friendly"
Cons: "It was crowded"
Pros: "Old aircraft. No media at the seats. Why are old aircraft still being used?"
Cons: "Basically everything. For the price, the flight on AA across the sea was horrible."
Cons: "The female staff at the desk where the luggage is dropped and boarding passes are issued was very rude. A little smile makes a difference vs being rude to customers. Apparently she needed to know that she is getting paid because customers like us choose to fly AA or BA"
Pros: "Plane was late missed all connecting flights"
Cons: "food and entertainment (5+ hours!)"
Pros: "Crew really helpful and efficient super fast boarding"
Pros: "Robbie and Carlos were exceptional. The gate agents were exceedingly rude and I will be filing a formal complaint."
Cons: "Gate agents"
Pros: "I like to staff and flight."
Cons: "My legs are too long for the seats"
Cons: "The flight was booked. A lot of families were separated. It included family with the small children. Passengers were running around asking to change the seats. The entertainment system was very slow. The sound made cracking noises. The flight was over two hours late. In addition, we had to wait for our luggage over 40'. The luggage was wet."
Cons: "Mobile boarding passes did not work and required us to go back to the service counter and print the tickets. Luckily we had time but this was a hassle given we were traveling with our 3 year old. The woman at the service desk quickly helped us print the passes but stated the mobile boarding passes tended to not scan. They should have told us to print the passes the first time we were at the counter if they knew the mobile passes tend to not work."
Pros: "Crew is helpful, seats comfortable, flight and baggage on time. Food was good for the airline."
Cons: "International connection experience is awful. I understand that AmericanAirlines is not responsible but no help or explanation was provided either."
Cons: "Having to pay AGAIN for a seat choice. AND IBWAS MADE TO CHECK MY XARRY-ON BAG ALL THE WAY THRU TO ROME! WHY. WHY couldn't it only be checked to Philadelphia.?. That has taken place on other flights. Should not require checking a carry-on all the way thru on an international flight."
Pros: "This was an American Airlines plane. The crew was disgruntled, but the seats were fantastic compared to British Airways."
Cons: "Crusty crew. Never heard flight attendants complain so much, so openly in front of customers."
Pros: "USB port at seat. Smooth ride and landing. Complimentary wine."
Cons: "Some of the typical unfriendly flight attendants. No way to get comfortable on the 10-hour flight. Horrible movie and other "entertainment" selections. Had to wait about 45 minutes on the tarmac after landing because they couldn't get an available gate for our scheduled flight. Beats the 5 HOUR delay on the flight out to Athens though. I have to say that's all the usual American Airlines incompetence. The cockpit crew always seem great though. I don't fly American unless I have to."
Cons: "The flight was two hours late leaving which caused me to miss my flight to Prague. The notifications about the delay and next steps for rescheduling the second flight were delayed and sent to the wrong email address."
Cons: "Lost the flight because of TSA who didn’t care I was missing the flight and gate personnel who didn’t allow me to get on board while the jet was still there. A nightmare and my luggages are still somewhere..."
Pros: "Not much here. The seats were ok, but the rest of the flight the airline was just poor."
Cons: "The airline is so outdated and behind the times of their competitors, their in that they don't have in flight entertainment unless you download their app and give them your email address. On top of that when I originally booked my flights, I had made sure to have 1.5 hr for a layover between my connecting flights. Well, they decided to move up my connector such that I had 25 minutes to run across 2 terminals. They only give you pretzels on the plane, and a single soda drink. They offer you "food bundles" but why do I want to pay $8 for a sandwich that costs $1 to make."
Pros: "On time arrival"
Cons: "No movie screens, no video screens, no charging options, no blankets, no pillows, no fun."
Pros: "None of the experience was pleasant"
Cons: "First flight was delayed causing us to miss the 2nd flight and we ended sleeping on a chair at the airport waiting for a morning flight. AMERICAN AIRLINES didn't even have the decency to put us in a hotel for the night due to their delay. Then they added a 2nd lay over which was delayed for hours also. Traveling was to visit my mother who had cancer and I was sick so this made the trip even more distasteful."
Pros: "Loved all the meals. Tasty, well-coordinated."
Pros: "great flight! THank You"
Pros: "All of the flight was OK - nothing special -"
Cons: "One of the flight attendants did not like her job at all - like a robot - no smiles, frustrated and bored"
Cons: "No food or entertainment offered at all - for a 5-1/2 hour flight. Seats uncomfortable. I don't like how it feels like you're nickle and diming us - charging for every little thing, including what seat you sit in."
Pros: "Lots of food and drinks, nice crew and pretty good experience"
Cons: "Tv screen too slow..... doesn't work that good,the plane was a little noisier at take off than usually, nothing mayor...."
Pros: "Roomie seat"
Cons: "Made me Put my purse in back of plane"
Pros: "Crew was fine and meal service was decent"
Cons: "Stood on the jetway for 30 minutes due to some issue with boarding. Aircraft was tiny, not enough bathrooms for such a long flight. Dirty bathrooms and long lines."
Pros: "an extraordinarily long and stressful journey that sgould have taken 15 hours but took 27.. I may stop using American Airlines"
Cons: "Entertainment screen did not work which affected 6 passengers, rows 34 and 35. Flight attendants kept saying there was nothing they could do. They didn't return to give us an update. We had to ask three times to different attendants."
Pros: "My flight had a really tight connection at London Heathrow. Then my flight from Vienna arrived 10 minutes late which made it even worse. A very nice BA agent met me as I deplaned at London Heathrow and ran with me thru Terminal 3. Helped me clear security with a priority card and ran to my gate with 2 minutes to spare. The women was really nice and if it was not for her I am sure I would not have made my connection. I don't know if there is anyway to track her down and thank her but I would like to do so. The flight attendants were OK but not excessively helpful."
Cons: "Having to reclear security. I understand the necessity though. The touch screens for the inflight entertainment did not work well. Food was Mediocre at best."
Pros: "Was on time, flight attendants very nice and professional"
Cons: "flight was overbooked good thing people volunteered to give up seats"
Pros: "Boarding was smooth"
Cons: "Plane is dated and a little crowded"
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."
Cons: "Carry on luggage does not fit for the whole plane. We had to check and wait for it to be unloaded in the jetway."
Cons: "5 hr delay"
Pros: "extra legroom, recline angle and depth, good crew"
Cons: "NO WiFI?? No Outlets ?? crew did not catch women sneaking into the exit aisle row even though she did not pay for it"
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: "The flight service was consistently adequate and the attendants made sure to provide many opportunities to stay well hydrated"
Cons: "There was a screaming child that made the trip almost intolerable. No fault of American, however, perhaps the attendants could have made some additional suggestions to the parent to help him quiet his child."
Pros: "Red eye was great, home in no time. Great flight crew"
Cons: "Getting there, flight was rescheduled by AA, left not enough time to catch 2nd flight. Ran to that terminal, staff was curt. Rescheduled 2nd flight, had to check in my carry on, which made the people picking me up wait."
Pros: "The airplane had screens that tracked the flight progress, which was nice once we finally left."
Cons: "The delay leaving Boston caused me major ground transportation problems in Philadelphia. Also boarding agents did a lousy job getting people to check their carry on bags, knowing with a full flight they wouldn't have room. This further delayed take off."
Pros: "We had a good flight home everything was good going was a terrible flight a lot of turbulence and attendance weren't very friendly"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled. this is the third flight that has been cancelled to this destination. I waited for 7 hours in the airport and caught a flight on stand by. Because this has happended to me before I knew how to get a stand by ticket right away even though I was scheduled on a flight for later that day. Much later."
Cons: "Kept getting delayed"
Cons: "Old plane"
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: "Everything."
Cons: "Old flight"
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"
Cons: "Long wait time"
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Worst crew, bad food, small personal space. Cheapskate company."
Pros: "Courteous crew. Smooth landing. My only compliant is that we have to purchase in-flight wi-fi."
Pros: "not much"

Cons: "None"
Pros: "Associates were nice and knowledgeable. The airplanes were comfortable. Love the onetime performance of scheduling."
Cons: "Unite Airline performance wasn't the good. Also, there was nobody in Chicago to help us with the transferring process."
Pros: "Everyone was pleasant."
Cons: "Delays due to staffing issues led to missed connection and 7 hour wait for next available flight."
Pros: "There was a delay due to thunderstorms and the female pilot handled it extremely well"
Pros: "FREE TV on the plane....all planes should have it."
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: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The roominess of the sets on this plane were excellent and the stewardesses were very friendly and accommodating ."
Pros: "Early boarding for families"
Cons: "Ridiculously cramped bathrooms"
Cons: "Flight never happened. American Airlines saved the day. It seems to me, the issues with United are deeper than we ever thought. I was highly disappointed with their inability to rectify the situation."
Cons: "i sat in front of the exit row which was feeezing. My boyfriend and I needed extra blankets because it is a red eye and sleeping is important but they would not give them to us. We were pretty much shivering the entire way home and could not sleep."
Cons: "Flight attendant were not courteous"
Cons: "No internet so made for a boring flight"
Pros: "Staff was very kind and genuine"
Cons: "the plane was absolutely freezing cold!"
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."
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."
Cons: "Internet was down the whole time"
Cons: "Not enough leg room or seat size. Just uncomfortable."
Pros: "Flihht was cancelled night before. Rep said impossoble to get him home the same day. Looking online there were flights available, just more expensive and doesnt follow their policy. Very disapointed"
Pros: "With these short flights on small planes, the best we can ask for is an on-time departure and smooth flying - which is just what we got."
Pros: "very smooth and fast"
Cons: "some of the united employees were rude"
Pros: "The man at the counter gave me a much better seat than I originally had. He was pleasant and very customer-friendly. I can't remember his name but he had brown hair, glasses and a mustache. I was extremely exhausted from my Las Vegas flight and it helped me greatly."
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: "Everything"
Cons: "N/a"
Pros: "Everything went smoothly and as planned"
Pros: "Attendants were nice."
Cons: "No entertainment screens & last seat didn't recline."
Pros: "In flight entertainment worked. Staff was friendly."
Cons: "I had no issue with the delay, things happen. I was dealing with a knee injury and the gate plan had us all over the airport. It was quite frustrating to get to a gate in another terminal only to get told we were being moved back to the terminal we had just come from! Then that gate was changed again, involving another long walk on said bad knee!"
Cons: "There was a sick passenger on board. The crew spent 40 minutes trying to convince him to get off the plane. He refused and after 40 minutes, they left him on and we finally left the gate."
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"
Cons: "The Flight was late taking off with no explanation. We were on the plane for an hour prior to takeoff with no AC. The cabin was extremely uncomfortable."
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."
Pros: "Flight left OT."
Cons: "Uncomfortable slimline seats."
Cons: "Tight aisle"
Pros: "Quick short sweet flight"
Cons: "Boarding late"
Pros: "Everything!"
Pros: "The softest landing on our whole trip!"
Pros: "Seats are not that small . It’s comfortable"
Cons: "Was the worst flight ever check in was opened late , computers were down , boarding was horrific , problems with many people and seating , flight left late ,"
Pros: "Nothing. I had to miss this flight because I wasn't allowed to board my earlier flight."
Cons: "Allow online check-in. Make the process less complicated and confusing. I had to sort through information from two airlines, kayak.com and kiwi.com. too much!"
Pros: "Crew was nice. Smooth flight."
Cons: "flight delay, then another equipment delay. But, better to fly in a safe airplane than rush things. I think the seats would be a little uncomfortable for a flight longer than a couple hours."
Pros: "Not a thing"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled. We were never notified ( in fact it was still available on Kayak after it was cancelled. They had all of our contact info. No other flights on the same day. They sent 2 100 dollar vouchers we will Never use. Worst ever. Never have experienced this and will NEVER recommend"
Pros: "The schedule was timely"
Cons: "Am 6.4 ft my leg did not fit in the chair"
Pros: "Really nice crew, really efficient boarding, I loved my seat assignment and the price was RIGHT!"
Cons: "Couldn't recline the seats, pretty harsh that you don't even get pretzels but I get it y'all."
Cons: "The seats are very uncomfortable for a long flight."
Pros: "Great crew and flight despite bad turbulence"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 3 hours and then the actual boarding process took another 30 min. Should’ve arrived at my destination by 6 and it’s now it’s 930"
Pros: "Everything good"
Cons: "The chairs"
Pros: "There was enough leg space and the flight was on time."
Cons: "There was no entertainment or food but that was expected. Otherwise a really great flight."
Pros: "The crew was in a difficult situation, and they handled it well."
Cons: "We sat on the tarmac for an hour because, as the captain informed us, “some paperwork had to be completed.” Okay, these things happen. But then to fail to offer complimentary snacks and beverages to make up for it strikes me as a poor miscalculation. How easy it would have been ro say, “We’re sorry for the delay, enjoy these snacks and beverages on us”? I overheard more than one pasenger remark that they would not br flying Frontier again anytime soon."
Cons: "1] Two hours late 2] Other than the woman at the check in counter, your staff is unprofessional their attitude is more like hey Iam just doing my job Of course in retrospect since flying has become a commodity all airline service is like that"
Pros: "I was appreciative to get home."
Cons: "I don’t like that you have to pay for seats. I find that ridiculous. I spent $500 for ea leg anyway and was annoyed that there were no seats available unless I wanted to pay more. The flight was scheduled to leave at 7:30 PM and was delayed until 10:52 PM departure. That was awful as we got into our bags at 1:45 AM. Seats don’t recline so it was uncomfortable as well."
Pros: "Boarding was smooth and fast. The travel time was a bit faster than predicted too."
Cons: "With lack of reclining seats and no complimentary snacks or drinks at all, the comfort scale is lacking. Even the tray tables were replaced by miniature, undersized, pieces. Even with the discounted prices, it’s hard to want to fly with them again."
Pros: "The crew was friendly. They got me to and from my destination safely."
Cons: "I resented the fact that we being charged about $3.00 for a can of soda after we paid premium for the flight and there was absolutely no entertainment. Hated the fact that I paid almost $80 just to take my clothes o. My vacation. Guess I should have gone naked, would have been $80 cheaper."
Cons: "Hidden costs,delayed flight,had to pay for carry on $35, had to pay for seat $30, plane was old"
Pros: "Nice crew."
Cons: "Our flight was supposed to leave at 6:40 PM but was bumped back until after 8 PM due to storms in the landing city however two other airlines in the same airport heading to the same city left on time."
Cons: "The flight was two hours delayed, but nothing confirmed that--the tickers said it was on time, the website and app said it was on time, and there was no frontier agent at the gate until 5 minutes before boarding--two full hours after the plane was supposed to leave."
Pros: "Cheap"
Cons: "Delayed 1 hr The tray top is so small and inconvenient that it is rendered useless"
Pros: "Waited over 45 mins to check my bag almost missed my flight and I pre checked in. Very Disappointed with no drink or food not good I won't be flying Froniter anytime soon"
Cons: "The crew was very nice"
Cons: "The flight was delayed for no reason given. The seats don't go back anymore-that sucks for long flights. To charge $2.99 for a soda that once was complimentary is insane! The bag prices are ridiculous. You trick people by offering ok prices for the original airline ticket, then charge outrageous prices for bags and drinks. Very disheartening. I will never fly Frontier again."
Pros: "Super professional, courteous, and helpful flight staff. Seat was uncomfortable, but it was a short flight, so I had a weird plastic bottle of wine and cared less."
Pros: "We had no issues boarding."
Cons: "The staff were angry, I paid for a direct flight and had a layover added after booking, staff were not happy, they charge for picking a seat, having a soda, seats don't recline, the plane was dirty, flight was late taking off. Instead of getting into Philadelphia via a direct flight early in the afternoon, we had a layover, delayed flight and I got into Philadelphia at rush hour."
Pros: "check in crew were very pleasant and helpful, making the check in process very smooth despite multiple people, skis,etc. You are getting nickeled-and died- but I planned for that in advance, and despite that it was still a value compared to other airlines."
Cons: "seats are uncomfortable. If flights get cancelled (mine were not!), you are screwed because Frontier does not partner with other "sister" airlines, so you will have to wait a long time for a rescheduled flight or change airlines on your own dime"
Pros: "Friendliness of crew. Captains' explanation (on the return leg of our flight) of why it took sooo long to know why our flight was repeatedly delayed. Extra leg room seats for purchase."
Cons: "Having to purchase my seat, paying to have a carry on and for EVERYTHING else- a la carte style!"
Pros: "I liked the convience of be able to relax and eat while waiting to aboard the plane!"
Cons: "I didn't like that all the seats were taken in the waiting area"
Pros: "Frontier's flights is very inexpensively priced. It is a budget airline but clean and comfortable. Baggage and food are added to your ticket price so if you don't need these items the price is right."
Pros: "I thought the planes were nice and clean although I guess that's the point."
Cons: "Charging for the first piece of luggage/carry on just isn't nice. I can see charging for people who fly with excessive pieces but this is my first time flying Frontier and to charge someone who brings one airline approved suitcase just isn't nice. I'm sure it's too much to ask for ANY sort of TV/Movie. I mean you fly to Orlando, if you put on a Disney movie it would be like shooting fish in a barrel and may even keep the kids a little quieter. Seeing as I have no children it would be great to have them slightly entertained if only for a little peace. I could care less about food/beverage options which of course were extra which I quickly realized was the name of your game. My reasonably priced $200 plane ticket became a $340 plane ticket once I realized there are no options but to either pay for my luggage or vacation naked. Also I was charged one price on my departing flight and a different price on my return flight for my luggage. When I asked why I was told the prices changed that very week. How convenient for your airline and nobody else."
Pros: "The crew: Friendly and Professional"
Cons: "Too much nickel and diming: Pay for seat selection, ridiculous fees for baggage, no free drinks..Really?"
Cons: "We paid for seat both way. Our returning flight moved our seats so we were no longer sitting together. Had to then go through the check in line ( even though we already had our boarding passes) to have the seat problem resolved. Only to be told that we never purchased seats. I had the documentation of the purchase and was still told we did not purchase seats. Not pleased."
Cons: "Couldn't move the seat back at all. Couldn't sleep."
Pros: "Fast boarding and friendly crew"
Cons: "Had to pay for all food and drinks"
Pros: "Check-in went quickly and all personnel very courteous. I was assigned a middle seat and when I requested a window seat on the return flight, they were very accommodating. The cabin was very clean and the flight crew very professional and friendly. Both flights were on time, I might add. Would definitely choose Frontier for my next flight."
Cons: "I have nothing negative to say about Frontier."
Cons: "Every time we fly with Frontier we are always delayed for hours. My husband did not even want to fly with Frontier but i told him this time may be different but I was wrong. Flight was suppose to leave at 9pm we didnt leave until close to 12am. Also, I am pregnant so I was so looking forward to arriving on time and getting food and into bed. (restaurants close at 8 at the Indianapolis airport) Very disappointing will be the last time we fly Frontier."
Cons: "Both times flights were delayed by minor maintenance or paper issues. Seems Frontier is not so efficient at preparing flights mechanically and paperwise as other airlines. Or maybe they had to run to Home Depot for a part. Either way it seemed they should have anticipated the minor issues earlier rather than delay the flight."
Pros: "Flight was smooth, and the staff were all very friendly."
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that you had to pay for carry on bags. I have never been asked to pay for a carry on bag, and fealt it was a cheap way to make a buck of clients."
Pros: "It was a smooth ride despite the weather in PHL"
Cons: "Flight was delayed one hour, my white luggage got two big footprints on and black marks all over, so they didn't handle my luggage with a little bit of care, waited 26 min at the baggage claim to get my now dirty luggage, there weren't complementary snacks on the plane."
Cons: "Once ticket is purchased, then the charges start adding up, extra charge for a seat, extra charge for a bag, they even charge for a soda during the flight. Seats that we paid extra for didn't even recline. Total ripoff, won't fly Frontier again!"
Cons: "They will fee you to death, it is not "cheap" flight once you pay All the baggage fees. Dirty planes, rude workers, and we went to NYC and were reunited with our lost luggage on our WAY HOME from our trip. Never again. They will be out of business in the near future I'm for certaon"
Cons: "I missed my flight because they closed the check-in counter and hour before departure."
Cons: "They charge for water. WATER. They charge for a carry on. The plane felt like it was going to fall apart. After an hour of turbulence, I started to feel sick but thankfully didn't have to throw up because there were no vomit bags. If you need a really cheap flight and are only bringing a purse, it would be a decent. But be prepared for rude people, discomfort, and turbulence. A misleading, unprofessional company."
Pros: "Plane was newer, very clean. Seats were comfortable and the flight crew was amazing. Pilots were friendly and kept us in the loop on flight time, turbulence, etc. Flight crew was amazing and very friendly."
Cons: "Seats don't recline??"
Cons: "When I get to the gate the woman told me that I don't pay for my carry on luggage even though it was the 2nd flight in a round trip flight. The first part I got on with the same exact bags with no extra charge. Instead of looking up my info she told me I pay or I stay. Without raising my voice I asked her to check but this caused her to get defensive. We had 5 min to get on the flight and we didn't have time to argue. Frontier robbed me of $120. I fly back and forth from Florida to New Jersey always using Frontier. This past weekend is my last time using that airline. Jet Blue and American will now get my business and I'll make sure I tell everyone I know about what happened."
Pros: "Pilot was excellent. Nice take off, and landing."
Cons: "I had to pay for a carry on, both ways, this added $80 to my flight. I could have gotten a cheaper flight. Flight was delayed due to broken air conditioning that didnt work the full flight."
Pros: "Not much really. Anything they did right was just even with any other airline. They did nothing that made stood out to me and made say wow."
Cons: "They nickel and dime you like crazy. EVERYTHING costs something extra."
Pros: "Easy check in, comfortable plane, friendly staff."
Cons: "Everything is extra. Once you buy your tickets you find out you have to pay for your seat assignment, carry on luggage is $30.00 each way for a total of $60.00, checked baggage is $25.00 each way for a total of $50.00. What really got me was that they charges passengers $1.99 for a cup of water on the flight. Passengers should take this into account when comparing to other carriers."
Pros: "price of ticket and friendliness of crew."
Cons: "paying for a carry-on and not being told during booking that this would be an added fee. my belt buckle was covered w/ food from a baby or young kid."
Pros: "It was affordable, quick and easy."
Cons: "They make you pay for any drink, even a cup of soda. So cheap airfare equals no free drinks. They don't even give a small bag of nuts anymore... All the airlines air cheap skates today. But what can ya do. That's what we get today."
Pros: "The crew was helpful polite and professional"
Pros: "Our seating pass was upgraded at the terminal at no extra cost."
Cons: "Window seats would have been better."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "not much. bumpy flight , seating tight"
Cons: "not much"
Pros: "Efficient crew, arrive early, smooth landing."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "The ticket agents were in Philadelphia and Atlantic City were unprofessional. I will never use Spirit Air lines again. The employees at the front desk and managers need to take lessons from United Airlines, Southwest, Delta ect..... I am very disappointed with the service. Yolanda"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight scheduled to leave at 8:25 AM. Did not leave until 1:45 PM. Was delayed four times because of a Crew issue on Easter Sunday. Missed our entire Easter celebration because spirit was unable to man a plane Will never fly this airline again. Customer service was rude on top of it. They need to be prepared for crew to call out on a holiday. 5 1/2 hour delay with no weather emergency is unacceptable. A 50 dollar voucher does not make up for ruining a family hokiday"
Pros: "A quick and direct flight"
Cons: "Having to pay an additional 30.00 for an over weight bag that would not be with other airlines"
Pros: "The flight crew were very good and informative. The plane took off on time and landed earlier than expected. The seats we chose were comfortable but a little expensive. Boarding was easy."
Cons: "To choose your seats was a little expensive and the baggage costs were way too much for a couple going on vacation for a week with one checked bag."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "First 3 dollars for water Second I paid extra for better seat with NO recliner seat WTH"
Cons: "Flight not full and they still jammed people 3 to a row. Web site confusing and difficult to use, unable to get a real person on the phone for help. My cheap fare doubled at check in due to baggage charges that were not made clear in advance. No email confirmation of flight. I would not fly Spirit again despite the fare,"
Pros: "Staff was very professional... courteous, friendly and understanding."
Pros: "Poor airline"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "This is not a comfort/luxury airline experience. It was, however, efficient, timely, and had pleasant staff. The seats are not comfortable and the $8 ones don't recline or have much cushion. It was great for the short flight from CT to SC."
Cons: "The seats were not exactly uncomfortable but could have been better, and didn't recline."
Pros: "It's affordable"
Cons: "How I had to purchase 3 tickets 2-3 times just to get home. there's no reimbursement when the company messed up."
Cons: "Luggage $45 carry on $38 this is where spirit gets you"
Cons: "$57 for carry on!"
Pros: "The price of the flight"
Cons: "Seats were a little uncomfortable"
Pros: "I upgraded to the big seat which is a must when flying with Spirit."
Cons: "During the last hour of the flight, I was woken up by a gut wrenching stench. I'm seated in row 1 and look up and this male is wiping himself down with paper towels, at first I thought he threw up all over himself, the smell became so bad everyone was coughing, gagging. The flight attendants started soaking the air with a harsh air freshener. Then the man started spraying the inside of a duffel bag with the spray. The flight attendant bent over and said his duffel bag is full of puppies! Wow. Why would he be allowed to bring that on a 5.30 hour flight. Then he's soaking these pups with air freshener. I was sick to my stomach. The only thing this guy was worried about was his new sneakers. Pathetic excuse of a human being. I still feel sick, and my throat hoarse from the smell of chemicals."
Pros: "The crew, two African-American flight attendants was awesome. great"
Cons: "The turbulence was awful."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats,"
Pros: "The price and flight attendants"
Cons: "Seats suck, gotta pay for every extra, running late for everything"
Pros: "None"
Cons: "Flight was canceled they lied and moved flight to next day...... no comps nothing"
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "The flight was delayed but I received an alert on my phone in plenty enough time to adjust my schedule. The plane was newish and there seemed to be a little more leg room and it was very clean. I was also chosen randomly for the TSA pre check... nice little perk to speed through security and not have to remove my shoes. All in all a great experience with Spirit."
Pros: "The crew was amazing; so funny and entertaining. Loved the pricing to customize what I did/didn't want and to give me the cheapest fare possible. LOVE that they now fly non-stop from Hartford to Myrtle Beach."
Cons: "Can't think of anything!"
Cons: "I didn't happen. was flying from Denver to philly through FLL. Got to FLL at 5 AM to find out my connection was cancelled and I wouldn't be able to get to my destination until 8 pm. Had to wait in the customer service line to get everything sorted out and spent an hour or so chasing down the bags I had checked through. Final result was cancelling my connection flight with Spirit and buying a JetBlue flight to Newark closer to my original schedule (and renting a car to drive to my final destination). Spirit was unable to issue a receipt for the cancellation and told me I have to call a week later to make sure it's happening. So there's actually no guarantee I'm getting any sort of refund."
Pros: "The fight"
Cons: "Customer service was unresponsive and unhelpful which cost me a day to my vacation. What's worse is that any scheduling conflict which in my case they caused resulted in me having to pay more money to correct. By far the worst experience I've ever had on an airline."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "They tried to force me to pay for a bag to be checked that I did not have to have checked on the flight leaving town . The lady helping everyone board was very rude and disrespectful. I asked her to get s manager and she refused . I was then told that I had to break down the gag and in all of the confusion, I lost my wedding ring !"
Pros: "They refunded my ticket"
Cons: "Had to find another flight"
Cons: "Agendas were extremely rude and disrespectful. I had a family issue causing me to drive to my destination, and kept my flight so I could fly home. When I went to check in online, there was no itinerary to be found. I called, and they said since I was a "no show", it was cancelled and I could not be reimbursed. I offered to use it as credit and get a new flight, paying the difference. This request was declined. The agents on the phone were very rude. Spirit nickel and dimes you, has no available seats, doesn't feed you, and the planes are small. I will never attempt to take this airline again."
Cons: "I paid for my seat and someone was sitting in it and did not want to move"
Pros: "The flight attendant"
Cons: "I checked in online- Requested a wheelchair and pre paid the line for checking bags did not move for almost 40 Minutes. I asked for a wheelchair during the wait because I could no longer stand - the attendants Just looked at me and never came. I ended up on the floor Bc I no longer had strength to stand with my cane and after a few people yelled about it I finally was brought a wheelchair- mind you they were lined up and ready with attendants just standing around. When we all brought to the staffs attention that our cut off time was happening in about 5 minutes they finally Brought another person over. We had all been waiting some for over an hour while the two attendants were being held up by the same customers."
Pros: "Quick easy boarding ...comfortable seating"
Cons: "It got cancelled due to weather, even though a good number of flights going into the same airport didn't get cancelled."
Pros: "Will never fly Spirit again."
Cons: "Will never fly Spirit again."
Pros: "Flight crew on 05 November was outstanding.--Funny, engaging, warm."
Cons: "Plane was dirty."
Pros: "We had a completely uneventful flight in both directions. Everything travelers could want!"
Pros: "The flight crew was very nice"
Cons: "Rude gate employees. Pay for water."
Cons: "Because of a storm, our plane wasn't able to land at the Philadelphia airport. The pilot circled the airport for 30 minutes in non-stop turbulence before making an announcement about what was going on. We then had to land in Atlantic City and the communication between the pilot, the steward/ess and the customers was pretty unbelievably lacking. Cups of water and crackers were offered only after 40 minutes of sitting on the ground in Atlantic City. I can understand that flights may not go accordingly due to weather or other surprises, but the staff was totally negligent and my experience with Spirit Airlines was relatively horrible. And I'm a super easy person to please."
Cons: "There was a scuffle on our flight. The stewardess had no clue how to properly handle the situation so we ended up leaving the airport very late. Spirit also nickel and dimes you anywhere they can! I should've flown with Delta! It would've been cheaper! Food and entertainment? There was none!! The chairs are also like metal fold up chairs they threw a thin layer of foam on and bolted to the floor. The stewardess has no clue how to use the lights and kept turning them on and off the entire time during a red eye flight when I was trying yo sleep. The pilot is an idiot and tried to coast into the landing on a windy rainy day resulting in the bumpiest landing I've EVER had. Poor, Spirit. Poor."
Pros: "Flight attendants were very nice, clean plane and the flight was smooth. 10 out of 10!"
Cons: "Not one thing."
Pros: "Flight attendes were very gd and nice"
Cons: "Up charged for every. They charge for water"
Pros: "Humorous in-flight announcement, i.e. "If you don't know how to put your device in "airplane mode", there's a 3-year old in the back to help you.""
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"
Cons: "Flight was delayed on both my trip to Los Angeles and my trip home. Updates on delayed on my previous flight were early and often. While updates on this flight were not. I checked my flight status early afternoon on Monday and found my flight was delayed. Yet when I arrived at the gate at LAX the information on the screen did not match what was on the website. The gate was stating the flight was delayed even more than the website was advertising."
Pros: "The flight was comfortable and enjoyable. We were late taking off and yet we arrived very close to our scheduled time. Baggage claim was very easy and quick. Enjoyed the friendliness of the crew."
Cons: "I had a very difficult time printing our boarding passes. I wasted 1 hr in front of a hotel computer trying to print the passes. Our password was never accepted. Alway "no match." Tried the only two passwords we use to no avail. I also called and paid for our baggage the night before our flight with a customer service rep, Carla, and when we got to the airport, the kiosk showed that we had not paid."
Cons: "I did not have my credit card with me and flight attendants would not accept cash for food and drink. I started to feel faint during take off. I asked the flight attendant for a glass of water. She said I have to buy water. I said I do not have my credit card with me. She said they do not accept cash! I begged for water, even just a sip I pleaded. She said all I can give you is a bit of ice. I started to cry and hold my throat. She still did not give me an ounce of water!!!! It cost $55 to CARRY ON my bag!! I just could not believe it! Also, the flight was delayed for take off. I will NEVER fly Spirit Airlines again. NEVER EVER!!!"
Cons: "Two hours before my Friday flight for the 4th weekend, Spirit cancelled the flight. I called to at least try and get another flight. They told me Sunday night was the next time the could get me another flight... What's the point of a weekend trip? I would say I'm surprised, but that's just typical Spirit."
Cons: "being nickel and dimed for all the fees, very uncomfortable seats. Overall not cheaper than any other airline"
