Crew was super helpful storing my bag, seating people, etc And now they’ve started thanking their Delta frequent flyer members !! Two crew came to find me and thanked me by name

Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "With flying there is nothing perfect all the time. I was able to sleep on the flight and had a place for my carry-on luggage. I wish unboarding was mad less complicated."
Pros: "great everything!"
Cons: "Not delayed"
Cons: "Communicating take off time!!! It changed multiple times by one three hours and ended up flying the next day!"
Pros: "Very professional crew. Nice equipment. Very pleased."
Cons: "The unfortunate delay prevented me from attending my grandmother’s wake. Fewer delays would be helpful."
Pros: "The crew did their best to deal with delay."
Cons: "There was an absolutely awful job done by both Delta and Kayak of informing us if additional delays, new gate assignments, when the plane would be reboarded. Also, people were quite angry that the plane had to be cleaned between the time we got off and the time we reboarded. Just get us home."
Pros: "The fight was very professionally carried out."
Cons: "The gate agent hurried ineffectively to board our slightly delayed flight (around 10 min). She left open the Priority Lane and boarded all pax there, having to step 4 steps to the left to scan every boarding pass."
Pros: "It was ok"
Cons: "Seat the family together"
Pros: "The crew and the comfort plus seat"
Cons: "Announcements were too loud in earphones (could damage ear drums) and entertainment was turned off while waiting 30 min for the gate to open."
Pros: "The flight crew was friendly and communicated well. They also had a friendly attitude."
Cons: "A 1 hour wait for wheelchair assistance in Houston and then a 30 minute delay for wheelchair people to take my mom to baggage claim. Then the wheelchair attendant kept complaining she wouldn't receive a good tip to take us to the Lyft pickup area."
Cons: "The flight had over six hours in combined delays!!!"
Pros: "The crew really kept us updated on the many delays."
Cons: "There were SO many delays and they kept changing. At one point we got on and off the plane."
Pros: "Everything was good except boarding was delayed several times and even after everyone had boarded. We arrived 2 hours behind originally scheduled time as the result."
Cons: "Delta needs to try harder to minimize flight delays."
Pros: "The seats were ok."
Cons: "The flight was delayed over 3 hours so I missed my connection in Chicago to Seattle. I’m now stick in Chicago overnight and have to be on a 6 am flight tomorrow. The Delta staff at LaGuaurdia was extremely rude and not helpful at all. Hate Delta......"
Pros: "Fast boarding, friendly crew, and comfy seats"
Cons: "It was pretty bumpy and a few times we changed altitude very quickly"
Cons: "Plane journey awful. Speaker had a loud buzzing noise all the time so never heard a word bad landing. Rattling plane Very cold."
Pros: "Clean plane, the seat felt roomy. Smooth ride and the captain communicated clearly."
Cons: "It felt super hot and I wish there was food included in such a long flight."
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Flight attendant spoke like a robot. Could not understand her."
Pros: "Staff, service, options"
Pros: "As usual great staff and awesome entertainment/connectivity"
Cons: "Due to weather & maintenance flight was delayed for IFR release & fuel temperature gauge issues. Staff was very helpful. Would have appreciated a drink voucher. Some unprofessional passengers took their frustrations out on the flight attendants."
Cons: "Over an hour delay before boarding due to supposedly bad weather. Because flight was overbooked they were offering $400 gift card to change to standby on another flight. If you didn’t make that flight (evening), you’d be confirmed on a flight the following morning with one stop in Detroit (we booked a nonstop to Chicago). Uh, no thanks. Then to top it off, we’ve landed and been told that it will be at least an hour before we can deplane due to no availability at the gate (it’s 1145 pm right now). All this plus their new policy of not allowing us to select our seats because we bought the cheapest tickets. Really Delta? You go ahead and cater to the rich and I’ll choose to fly with another airline."
Pros: "The flight was probably only half booked, the crew was awesome, very attentive and accommodating. Legroom at seat 13A was plenty. Also the fact that messaging is free is convenient."
Cons: "No food to purchase. The flight was over dinner time. Boarding - the ground staff’s announcements weren’t very intelligible."
Pros: "Crew friendly"
Cons: "Middle seat with no option for me to move"
Pros: "Movie"
Cons: "Break downs again... At least this time they found another plane."
Pros: "I flew on a basic economy fare (I understand the restrictions) and was seated in Economy Comfort +, so that was appreciated."
Cons: "I could see on the Fly Delta app that I had been placed in seat 10B, but neither the app nor my boarding pass gave me a group to board with, so I assumed that I needed to board with group 3, which necessitated gate-checking my rollerboard bag. Only when I approached the gate to board did I notice on the info screen that I had been "upgraded" to Comfort + and granted boarding with the Sky Priority group. I wish this had been clearer so I could have avoided waiting to board and gate-checking my bag. Minor inconvenience but room for improvement on Delta's part."
Pros: "Friendly staff and comfortable seating"
Pros: "This was not my original transfer flight but everyone was much nicer and helpful than serious and being rude. Love Delta, I did not flight United because I wouldn’t have met my United flight once landing in ATL. The Young African American woman who was at the gate was amazing and so reassuring that I would make my flight to Chicago. Would book Delta, just because of how nice she was to me."
Pros: "Flt on time, very nice and friendly gate agent and flight attendant"
Pros: "I love Delta airline this is what airline I pefer to go with whenever I fly anywhere they are the way for me such happy ppl and so much help."
Cons: "On one of my flights the Wi-Fi was down so it killed my entertainment but the flight wasn't long so it wasn't so bad for me"
Cons: "Too tight and seats not comfortable."
Pros: "Boarding"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Delayed"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable flight. Seats are to close to each other"
Pros: "The Delta people were solicitous, efficient and brilliant the whole way through. We had not a bit of trouble. Our first class seats were comfortable, but with the supplied blanket, pillow and poor air conditioning it was a hot flight. The cabin personnel were wonderful as per usual, and my tasty gin and tonic soothed any discontent. I wish I could fly this way all the time!"
Cons: "The private contractor handling wheelchair assistance was terrible. A Delta employee theorized that they do not pay enough to attract and retain personnel. Our pre-arranged chair was not there, multiple calls by our Delta assistant finally got us a ride to the chair holding area, but after about 45 minutes we gave up and shuffled off to the security area on foot. Thank goodness my hubby is mobile enough for that to have been an option. When we abandoned our wait we were still 4th in line for an attendant to push the chair. If Delta has any responsibility in this it would be in the retention and compensation for the private contractor."
Pros: "We were traveling with a toddler and infant but put in different row because the tickets were purchased separately. Gate staff promptly put us together and even bumped us up to delta comfort. Was a very pleasant trip. Thanks delta!"
Pros: "Plane arrived early"
Cons: "They board the front of the plane first, meaning the aisles get clogged up slowing down the process. Also, staff kept insisting pre boarding that more people needed to check their bags because there wasn't enough overhead bin space, but there were plenty of bins not full by take off."
Pros: "Accident on way to airport, so I showed up to check bags 45 minutes before flight time. They said they couldn't get the bag to the plane..in 45 minutes? So, they put on the next flight... 6 hours later. Said I could fly without the bag... uh, no thanks. They would not look for alternatives without charging me more. Flight attendants were crabby, otherwise everything was fine. I flew British Airways a few months ago. Night and day. Seriously. Delta does not even approach having good service. There was no comparison to British Air--- Delta is not in the same league."
Pros: "Airline stewards were very friendly and pleasant."
Cons: "We booked with Delta, but were put on Air France. Even though we had our boarding passes in hand we had to wait in long, slow line for baggage tags because they would not print from kiosk. There was minimal Air France staff on duty serving thousands of passengers during busy season (July). While the lines grew larger, the staff was reduced from 4 to 2. Another long, slow line for customs, another long slow line for security=Charles De Gaulle airport was awful. We arrived at the airport 4 hours before our departure time and got to our boarding gate with no time to spare."
Pros: "What I liked: Sky Priority privilege came with separate luggage check-in queues and early boarding"
Cons: "What I disliked: Seats were too small No beverages or snacks offered No USB or power outlets available Three different groups board before Delta Comfort (e.g. those needing more time, travelers with children, first/business class) Didn't see the value compared to a less expensive main cabin ticket"
Pros: "N/a"
Cons: "Delta costumer service was terrible. Cancelled my trip twice. They lied to us saying that they were going to give vouchers for hotel, that we were going to be automatically booked for next flight and that our bags would arrive with our flight. Waited 7hs to talk to an agent in the airport. 24h wait in Atlanta had to sleep in airport. They wanted me to wait three days in atlanta. They forced me to check a carry on because they didn't have room in the plane. They told me my bag would arrive with my flight. It never did. I still dont have by only bag. Unbelievable."
Pros: "I was notified about the delay via text before I left for the airport, which was nice. I would not have checked my email."
Cons: "Delayed for over 2 hours. I have never flown Delta before this flight and it wasn't a great representation. The flight attendants were nice but I was in a seat near the engine and it was making really weird noises. I fly almost every two weeks, so I'm used to engine noises but this was one of the loudest/most rickety sounding flights I have ever been on.. and I have flown Spirit a few times. It just didn't feel safe. Landing scared me a little too as I have landed in O'Hare countless times and have never flown so low to the highway upon entry. It felt like we were only a couple hundred feet above the cars."
Pros: "Great short trip with an attentive crew."
Cons: "Seats were a bit uncofortable and small compared to previous flights."
Cons: "Unnecessary flight cancellation. I had friends taking the same flight at the same time at the same airport from different airlines and they came through for their customers. I received no consolation it assistance with overnight accommodations."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "I don't get it.. why airlines have no pride? Tickets are expensive! Fuel is lately cheap.. a Don't get it.. why do they keep crying and act like poor helpless companies? You are connecting 2 major cities in the US... can you please have some pride and offer a Nice airplane and not a crappy old one? Can you have some service going beyond just a soda? It doesn't make sense! When you fly in Europe with any major airline company (not low cost..), no matter how long or short the flight is, minimum you get a sandwich and abundance of drinks.. not with Delta (or any other american airline company).. pontless. We always get treated like cattle.. but they like keeping the prices of tickets expensive, don't they???"
Pros: "Rebooked to Atlanta because of a delay."
Cons: "Delta notifications and Kayak notifications were giving me conflicting information, however once I arrived at the Houston airport a Delta representative clarified my issues."
Pros: "great crew!"
Cons: "Delayed without explanation. Otherwise fine"

Another delayed flight on American. Another missed connection. No gate when we finally landed, sat on the plane for over 30 minutes and we all missed our connecting flights.

Disappointed in the toilet area both flights- filthy and urine on floor everywhere both flights Boarding and texts communications excellent

Flight attendant for first class is definitely not a morning person. Oh and the WiFi DID NOT WORK!

Better food please

The flight was delayed for five hours due to airplane issues.

Entertainment was very plentiful, staff were courteous. Seating was HORRIBLE. That is the most cramped I’ve ever been on any flight …Jet Blue and Spirit included. Very uncomfortable for a six hour trip.

The entertainment box wasn’t working. The food was mediocre. The fruit was warm. The tiny salad was good. The champagne wasn’t cold. I really expected more from First Class.

It was all good. Thanks

Delayed little by little, so there was no chance to sleep longer or go out to eat. Missed connection flight and did not offer allocation, had to request it and $12 for lunch dinner and breakfast. No transport to hotel provided so there is another $120 in uber to get there.

The plane had mechanical issues which caused the flight to be delayed over an hour, which would cause me to miss my connection. I was unable to take this flight so I had to wait 4 1/2 hours for the next available flight to Dallas. I will try to avoid connecting through Chicago or Charlotte since there are limited flights through those cities. American did change my flight for no charge.

The boarding process went very quickly, faster than I’ve ever seen boarding occur. I understand the need for efficiency, but the groups were called so quickly that there was a lot of chaos at the gate and people running through the airport. Then we all sat on the plane for a while, which seemed silly.

…sat in a window seat with a window that was either dirty or fogged over and couldn’t see out. …the flight was delayed and late for unspecified reasons.

Pros: "empty plane"
Cons: "food"
Pros: "When we did get in the air, the flight seemed to go quickly and we got there fast."
Cons: "I upgraded to 1st class for both flights but the plane seating was very dismal and hadn't been upgraded in either of these planes for a long time. After we boarded the plane we were told that no drink, snacks or food would be offered. The attendant shut off the lights as soon as we got in the air and kept it dark in the cabin until 10 minutes before we landed. She never came around to check on us once or ask if we needed anything. I was so thirsty when we landed. I have decided that I will either go back to United Airlines or check out the 1st class options at American Airlines better next time. This might not have been their fault, I'm not sure what it was, but the flight was late landing and we took off an hour late as well which really put me behind schedule."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The flight was delayed due to a missing officer. Because of this, I missed my flight from Chicago to Narita Japan. I had to cancel the hotel in Japan and pay $120 cancellation fee. The customer service changed my flight to go to Dallas/Fort Worth TX then fly to Narita Japan next day. They gave me vouchers for hotel stay and meal ($12) which are absolutely minimal compensation after all this headaches. They were unable to upgrade my seat since they’re full. Now the flight to Narita is 2 hour delay and they have changed the gate at least twice. I’m worried if I can get on the next connecting flight to Sapporo due to this delayed schedule. I feel like this whole trip is ruined because the delayed flight from Philadelphia to Chicago. This has been my worst and the most ridiculous flight experience ever. I don’t think I ever want to fly with American Airlines in the future."
Pros: "Our flight attendant was very polite and with a great attitude."
Cons: "The pilot arrived late because he went for a Tim Horton's coffee (I know that because I was in first row and I heard the flight attendants talking about that). Then, after he finally arrived with a tray full of coffees, there was an issue with the jet's computer and had to reset it and we had to wait even more. When we finally arrived, our Gate was taken by other plane already and we had to wait (more) for the first one to be available for us. Then, when we finally got our Gate, there was another issue, now with the "finger". They weren't able to move it and connect it to the plane to get off of it. So we had to wait AGAIN. And finally as soon as we got off the plane, they were supposed to give us our carry ons on the aisle (Because it was a small plane CR700) , but again, we had to wait almost 10 minutes so that they could send the luggage... To make things worse, I had a first class ticket and I couldn't get the perks of it at the airport. Because they said I wasn't flying in an international flight. Come on?! Canada->USA->Mexico is not International??? You lost me AA."
Pros: "We didn’t crash and die. That’s the only positive."
Cons: "Before we boarded I listened to a couple described how they always went ahead in line at boarding because no one ever stopped them. They described how they waited until group 3 was called and then went right through. While we were waiting, we watched them do it again. If you need to cram people into tiny spaces to be profitable, then you cannot allow them to make it worse by putting back their seats. I spent 90 minutes with a seat back jammed into my chest. We were ignored when handing out snacks, probably because we were invisible behind the seats pushed in our faces. It was one of the most miserable flights I’ve experienced."
Pros: "Great crew. Easily accessible."
Cons: "Several delays."
Pros: "NA"
Cons: "Multiple delayed flights leading to short connection time. Despite meeting stated time, denied entry and surprises that my ticket was changed with no effort to correct said error at the gate despite adequate time prior to take off."
Cons: "As a handicaped disabled not able to walk and should be using a wheel chair,as I know from my many previous travels with other companies like lufthanza, klm..etc, I used to be the first traveller to go to the air craft when loading it to take off and the last one who would be leaving it after landing. Even when going through the check and security points I used to go in a special route especially for the handicaped but going with all other normal travelers lines with such amount of time waiting and crowdness is completely inconvenient. what happened through the trip was quit different , going with the travelers or after when they are boarding the craft make it very hard and time consuming , Wish you take care of it, as it's a very important handicaped service. Thank you for taking the time to read my comment"
Pros: "I liked the room."
Cons: "There was no entertainment. Could not get seats together."
Pros: "The staff was fantastic"
Cons: "Well my flight got delayed four separate times. I was stuck in LAX for 3 hours. So much that booked another flight with another airline for the following morning. I had to book a hotel nearby LAX just so I could somewhere to sleep for the night. My luggage made it to Chicago safely, but I didn’t at least not with American Airlines. It took them an hour to tell us that they reassigned the pilot to another flight, not only that when it was delayed the first initial time (40 minute delay) about ten minutes before we were supposed to board they tell us that the flight attendant crew is going to take 30 minutes to get to the gate. Not only but those poor airline service staff were completely unaware of all these changes! They had to find out from the passengers what was going on. Honestly I will never fly with American Airlines ever again!!!"
Pros: "Flight was comfortable and enjoyable. Entertainment was great lots of films to choose. Service by the flight crew was excellent"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "This was a nighmare!"
Cons: "My flight Paris/London/Manchester?Chicago was the mos impleasant experience I ever had. On July the flight was schedule for 9...pm then delayed for two hours because of a fire, other passengers said, in London. At around 11pm, we were asked to line up for boarding. We stayed on line for an hour and fnally to be told the flight was cancelled. We were treated less than animals by British Airway. No ACCOMODATION!!!!!!!! No ACCOMODATION!!!!!!! We slept on benches at the airport. To be fair to you, I will not recommend British Airway to anyone."
Cons: "American Airlines has terrible customer service. We were unable to board our flight at the Philadelphia airport because when we arrived (almost 2 hours before our flight) the ticket counter was already closed for the evening. No one from American Airlines could help us. We were left stranded at the ticket counter until it reopened at 3:15 am. We are very disappointed and disgusted with the poor service we received from American Airlines. After hearing multiple horror stories from others, it is safe to say we will never fly that airline again."
Cons: "The vegetarian meal is always vegan, I miss the dairy :("
Pros: "The crew was great and made light of a relatively tense situation. This was a connecting flight for many passengers which was delayed so many of us were missing our connections. The crew still did a great job keeping everyone comfortable and boarding us quickly."
Cons: "Unfortunately our plane was grounded in Chicago before our leg of the trip even began. By the time it arrived in YYZ many of us would already be missing connections. Due to a smaller plane we have to stow most of our carry on below which caused a bit of chaos while disembarking trying to retrieve bags and hustle to the next flights. Since I knew before leaving YYZ we were quite delayed my husband drove to ORD to pick me up instead of waiting 24hr for the next flight to St. Louis. It added 8 hours of driving for him to an already long day but we made the best of it."
Pros: "Good is that they sent you to Finnair to correct AA created break in service...why would they pay for it? AA is just an operator per itinerary! Why would you care if ppl get help with connections!"
Cons: "Checked in online on Finnair and automatically for the second connecting flight...and not the first -AA. So, had to check-in again for the first flight at the terminal. Board passes were printed 2 out of 3 by AA and both had errors - wrong gate for the first flight and no boarding info for the second connecting flight - just blank! AA did not provide connecting info until I found an unoccupied employee at the terminal and customer service lines were about 20 people in 2 locations I went to. The connecting info should be in the itinerary they said at customer service...nope, it was not there either!"
Pros: "Entertainment on screens"
Cons: "The gate agent made us starting in boarding group 6 out of 9 to check sizes of bags in the size box and she got into a verbal fight with another passenger. One guy told her she could board but the gate agent said no it didn't fit and she couldn't board. Then the agent claimed she had to gate check her bag and claimed there were no overhead spaces left. So everyone after that had to gate check. When I boarded there were at least 8 empty bins and I had not even gotten to my seat in row 22. The gate agent lied and slowed down the entire boarding process because she want to win a fight and show dominance over a passenger."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Our bags were lost going to Rome for a wedding and our cloths were in the bags for the brides father and sister bridesmade. No updates and the have my phone number and email address. You would think it was 1968 or something! Unacceptable in this day and age of communication! The wedding is in 48 hours and can’t find our bags? All this was explained to the airline in Rome the baggage handlers etc. etc. still nothing. Absolutely amazing and disappointing!"
Pros: "Nice leg room"
Cons: "Doors closed early for my 6:28am flight. I couldn't fly until 1:18pm. Crew says that doors close 10 minutes before flight. The doors on the 1:18pm flight stayed open well after 1:18pm. The flight was then delayed until 1:50pm."
Cons: "A passenger caused a delay in security, and as I'm rushing for the gate, the agent closed the door and told me I couldn't board. She then marked me as a no-show, while she was standing right next front of her. I had to spend the next 4 hrs on the phone, trying to get my tickets sorted out. Then, upon arriving at Heathrow,... No luggage. They told me it was still in Chicago. Upon finally receiving my bags, I find them full of sawdust and sand, and several items damaged. I will NEVER fly American Airlines again, and I will highly recommend to my friends and family to avoid them like them plague. Horrible service! Nothing but a run-around and not once did the agents apologise, even after admitting that my problems on this journey were due to a mistake made by one of their agents."
Pros: "We boarded on time and we departed on time. We got into Chicago 30 minutes early. We recently acquired a AA credit card and we got 2 checked bags free and priority boarding (Group 5). In today's world your need priority boarding of some sort on AA or you risk not being able to store you bags in the overhead and may have to get it checked free to your final destination. Also, one of our checked bags had a painting in it that we purchased and the bag and painting arrived unharmed. Good job by AA baggage handlers."
Cons: "Cramped seating. Airlines seem to be moving seats closer together to be able to hold more passengers."
Pros: "The flight was quite emty and instead of packing everyone in the same area, we all had a row for ourselves which was very enjoyable. Flight crew was very nice"
Cons: "The interview by a British Airway agent before the flight. I have been to the USA many times and I totally understand this type of interview, but the agent was aggressive, asking questions that were totally irrelevant. She did not even care about why I was going to the USA or where I was staying. Se was rude and I was really unpleased by her attitude saying it was British Airways way off doing interviews. Again I have had many interviews before flying to the USA, never been a bad exerience before"
Pros: "Boarding and flight were on time."
Pros: "The complementary wine was nice. The raspberry sponge cake was nice. Nice options for entertainment."
Cons: "No one in the entire airport knew what flight I was talking about when I told them it was Iberia + flight number. People were saying I must have the wrong airport. I almost missed my flight because of this. Everything was through American airlines. It would have been nice to know this going in. Also it was tough doing transfers because once again, none of the departure screens refer to "Iberia flights." It was also tough to check-in. Instructions were not clear in terms of the booking number to use. The Iberia app had a lot of usability problems. The seats are too cramped. I'd have to take out a loan to be able to afford business class or 1st class. It's absolutely horrible for everyone in coach. Especially for long flights as this one. The food was subpar, but that is to be expected in my opinion. Would have been nice to offer complementary headphones. I wasn't able to utilize the entertainment because my headphones are blue tooth. Upon arrival, we had to sit on the tarmac for 20 minutes because there was another airplane in our spot."
Cons: "Check in staff was unprepared for volume of people. When asking an American Airlines agent if I could use the priority check in because I had priority seating I was told no. I was informed by a customer going that way that I indeed could. When I got in line for the priority check in, the agent looked over and very loudly said that I was in the wrong check in area. Given the volume at which it was said to me I felt embarrassed, and was upset at the fact that I then had to respond that I indeed was in the correct location."
Cons: "My flight was delayed 4 times from Columbus to Chicago due to an ATC issue in Chicago. On the 4th delay announcement I had to rebook my international flight for the following day because my connection was leaving Chicago while I was still in Columbus. I had to rebook and get a hotel for the night on my own expense since American Airlines won't pay if it is weather related even though the weather was not the issue, rather air traffic control. The plane we got the next day was a smaller uncomfortable plane with zero entertainment and a crew that projected they would rather be anywhere else. I don't blame them, my experiences with American Airlines had been progressively getting worse."
Pros: "Despite the boarding process, the on-flight crew was nice. The seats were comfortable. Also, I like the in-plane sockets and entertainment screens."
Cons: "When preparing to board, the two clerks at the gate were very rude. I had a carry-on suitcase, a laptop bag, and a small camera bag. They wouldn't let me board, claiming that my camera bag was a third item that I couldn't have. They then tried to force me to check the suitcase which i explained that I did not want to do, before giving me the chance to place the camera bag in the suitcase (which it fit just fine). They were not understanding or friendly and really made me question my decision of flying with American Airlines."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Personnel; lack of customer service"
Pros: "Having flown long haul with American numerous times, this time I was pleasantly surprised by several things. Firstly, the brand new plane with excellent in-seat entertainment choices, power points at every seat, more comfortable chairs with better head rests and even window dimmers vs. window shades, allowing you to look outside the whole flight. Secondly, the food was much improved...definitely better quality and tastier than typical airline food. And thirdly, better service from flight attendants who actually smiled. Keep up the good work. This represents a real step change."
Pros: "Flight crew was excellent."
Cons: "We booked flights through British Airways but flew American Airlines. The check in process was a stressful mess: we were forced to stand in long customer service lines both on our first flight from LAX to Chicago and again during our very short layover in Chicago to Dublin to ensure that our bags were checked all the way to our final destination. Very stressful, and it didn't help that the gate crew was extremely rude and unprofessional. It is very inconvenient that we could not choose our seats beforehand."
Cons: "They had no record of this portion of my trip, after a few people checked they found the Chicago to Ammon part so they added me onto a flight from Washington to Chicago. All should of went well from there but they sent me to the wrong gate. Luckily I just made it to the correct gate for boarding. Upon arriving at Chicago there was no one available to provide information on how to get to Royal Jordanian gates. Also on my AA portion of my flight coming into The U S in New York the flight was cancelled and I was told the next flight Available was next day (18hr delay) at the other NY airport. I had to have someone drive from D.C. (My destination) to pick me up"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and did their best, the flight took off my schedule"
Cons: "They didn't have individual tvs which was disappointing but showed three movies instead on screens. They announced the movies being shown on the flight at the beginning and then proceeded to show three completely different things, some just being random tv shows. The whole middle section of the plan had static in their headphones so they were unable to watch the movies. The crew was friendly but seemed very confused as if it was their first time working together. Announcements were choppy And confusing. They also asked me to pay 190 dollars extra to sit with my husband. Not the best experience"
Pros: "Boarding was a mess - there were no announcements about boarding and the gate agent did nothing to promote order in the gate area. Thank goodness for the new planes on this route - the old planes with the blue "leather" seats were so overdue to be retired. Onboard entertainment was great and every seat had a USB port and AC outlet. Smoothest landing ever, I couldn't even tell when the wheels hit the pavement! It was also the first time I recall a female captain on American - maybe the smooth landing wasn't such a coincidence :)"
Pros: "The staff were amazing. Very accommodating and with great dispositions. Boarding was easy."
Cons: "For an international flight the seats were extremely tiny and the plane itself only had a few tv screens posted in the middle of the plane so everyone had to watch the same thing."
Pros: "comfortable seats"
Cons: "While boarding the plane an AA employee actually grabbed the 1/4 full gym bag out of my boyfriend's hands and said he had to check it (even though it had fit under his seat next to his backpack on our previous American Airlines flight). Boarded and saw there was still plenty of open overhead bin space. Had to wait 30 extra minutes at our destination to claim his unnecessarily checked bag. This is on top of poor customer service from the gate agents and a long delay on our outbound flight. Will not choose to fly American Airlines in the future"
Pros: "The movie selection and how often we were given beverages."
Cons: "I was selected for a random inspection. I was pulled aside and went through a separate check in process. I completed everything I was instructed to do and as I'm boarding, I'm pulled aside and told I needed to go back to pre clearance because someone forgot to punch a hole in my boarding pass. The stewardess and j had to run all the way back to security so I could go through the whole process again. I delayed the flight and everyone was upset. It was completely unnecessary. Simply because one employee didn't do their job, I delayed a transatlantic flight to Chicago. Best part, I arrived at the airport four hours before my flight. Also, the seats are incredibly uncomfortable. And I was separated from my traveling companion for this entire process. Had I missed the flight, she would never have known."
Pros: "Free beverage"
Cons: "Was told I couldn't get on earlier flight because I hate checked a bag. That bag ended up on earlier flight and sat in Rochester for 5 hours. Was delayed due to "maintenance" and the inability to find flight attendant. Ended up changing gates and then forgotten for 45 minutes before manager asked someone if we were headed to Rochester. Once aboard second plane waited for another 45 minutes for fuel. Never flying American again.Was told I couldn't get on earlier flight because I hate checked a bag.

Pros: "Very efficient boarding, comfortable coach seats, good crew"
Cons: "No food! except pretzels and sandwiches for purchase. I didn't purchase a sandwich but the two guys next to me did and were both vocal about their disappointment with what they received for $9. And they were strangers who didn't talk to each other the rest of the time, so I think they meant it. Also, entertainment: they had a movie on the pop-down screens, and 4 free movies to stream to your device using onboard wifi, as well as 2 tv shows. So maybe I'm being harsh. But it was a transcontinental flight and they didn't have headrest screens loaded with movies. Is this only for international flights? The movies were bad, or at least not appealing to me ('Keanu' and 'Zoolander 2'). It was possible to pay for additional movies, but who wants to do that? It was sort of the EasyJet model, where you get good basic service but pay for everything additional that one gets for free on Delta. Maybe that was reflected in the price I paid for the ticket, but I was expecting that AA would be in the same league as United and Delta. One nice perk: free wifi for T-Mobile customers, including me."
Pros: "Everyone and everything was awesome"
Cons: "With the ongoing situation at hand. Everything was great."
Cons: "I choosed this very very expensive flight because it was so import to be home in CPH at 9.00 for an important meeting. My flight from Chicago was delayed and nothing was done by the pilots to arrive on time. Despite the delay, I managed to arrive on time to my Connecting flight to CPH - only to realize that I was moved to a later flight. Now I have spent 2.300 USD on a poor flight that do NOT bring me to my destination on time. I am a frequent flyer, and will do everything I can Avoiding United going forward. Never United again"
Pros: "Was delayed"
Cons: "Check in crew was so inflexible, and demanding. She wanted me to open a careful-sealed box just to take a pound out. Whrist my other luggage was only 48 pounds! I understand it is part of my fault not to be careful when weigh the boxes but she should have asked nicely. I would rate 0 for the bad behavior. This is not a first time I have bad experienced with United Airlines. I would not recomend this airlines."
Pros: "Selection of seats"
Cons: "All was good"
Pros: "Flight as expected."
Cons: "Poor Wifi Connection during flight. Baggage Claim took almost an hour due to issues on the runway."
Pros: "The in flight personnel"
Cons: "The gate employees have no sense of customer service . Absolutely no clue !"
Pros: "All of the above"
Cons: "Shortage of space for carry on"
Pros: "Rude gate staff. They were being very condescending in their tone while saying perhaps appropriate information. This occurred starting when one woman got in line. The sign kept changing...her accharine like tone telling her that boarding would begin at 1130 was unnecessary. Communicating with foreign passengers whose flight had been rebooked to this flight was very poor. Instead of asking them for the name of their baby, the gate employee kept asking them for the lap child name! This occurred over and over until finally they asked for the bany's name. The lady who is from Chicago started practically wagging her finger and just saying NO! to bags that might be too large. How she did this was overly rude even when the bag fit in the metal sizer!"
Cons: "Sorry....above is what I did not like. I like that my bag was shifted away, tagged and put on board...made it to Rome! Flight staff very professional!"
Pros: "Customer service replaced my previous United connection with an Alaska Airlines flight that got me in earlier."
Cons: "n/a"
Pros: "United did a great job"
Cons: "Long distance from gate to baggage area"
Cons: "Constant delays with this airline, I avoid it."
Pros: "Crew was great, very accomodating. Seats were fantastic."
Cons: "Plane leaked water from overhead compartment onto to my seat. Crew member used napkins & band aids (seriously) to patch up the drips. Food was horrible (jumbalaya) and hardly a portion. No idea how to operate the entertainment system ? We sat on the taxi runway for over 30 minutes waiting for a parking space at the terminal. Nearly missed connection."
Pros: "The text letting me know my luggage is going the wrong direction."
Cons: "Not getting my luggage"
Pros: "Stroopwafels and fresh hot tea, polite crew"
Cons: "Everything went well"
Cons: "We sat on plane for 5 hours before take off was hot"
Cons: "They over booked the flight again and wanted 4 people to volunteer to take a layer flight."
Pros: "Pleasant staff"
Cons: "My husband and I chose seats together when the tickets were purchased and when we received or boarding passes they had been changed, separating us. My 6 foot 200 lb husband ended up against the window in a row with 2 women that were both well over 250 lbs and I was seated with strangers. No free movie as there was on the trip to Texas"
Pros: "Seats were a little better on this flight. Crews were friendly and offered drinks a couple of times"
Pros: "Great flight"
Pros: "Duration of flight"
Cons: "Delayed, boarding was slow, no entertainment on flight"
Pros: "Met the time frame stated"
Cons: "Bathroom smelly"
Pros: "Thanks to your professional flight crew and ground crew."
Pros: "I didnt like anything. Once back in USA we were discriminated for talking about our distaste for Donald Trump. Someone was offended and we were kicked off. Unconstitutional."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and efficient. They were extremely helpful with our requests. The entertainment was good, I was able to watch a movie the whole flight home."
Cons: "We were expected to land at 5pm and did not land until 5:20pm. Upon arrival, the line to immigration was ridiculous. The machines were super slow and kept freezing. It took an hour before we could get to the X-ray line. At this point we had already missed the original time of our flight. Luckily the flight was delayed 30 minutes. After going through the x-ray machines we ran to our gate only to find out it had been changed and delayed again. We made it to our flight which was now rescheduled to depart at 7:23pm. After sitting in the plane for 45 minutes we did not depart until 8pm making our landing 2 hours after the original time."
Cons: "My Flight was delayed various times, I was put on standby twice. When I looked for help I was left waiting at an empty united counter for half an hour until an employee decided to show up and offer no assistance. This has been the MOST unprofessional and stressful airline experience I have ever dealt with. Never wasting my time purchasing tickets from united again."
Pros: "Uneventful flight, the best kind."
Cons: "Snacks could have been better. Seats could have been more comfortable. No free wifi."
Pros: "The new planes were comfortable. The seats were had great cushions and each seat back had the option of TV. The food choices for purchase were varied and substantial. The crew was really nice."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "for the most part everything."
Cons: "Did like that my seat changed from F15 to A38, that was very disappointing."
Pros: "Courtesy and smilling faces."
Cons: "Everything went well. No complaints."
Pros: "Had to pay for wifi, food, you name it."
Pros: "Nothing did not take the flight"
Pros: "The crew where helpful"
Cons: "The fact that if I want to eat something or drink something I have to deprive myself of that and all because airlines including tens one do not take cash only credit."
Pros: "My overall travel was very comfortable. I liked the speed at which the plane went at."
Pros: "Friendly crew. Love them"
Cons: "Hard to get conectes to the "free" entertainment"
Pros: "On-time. Reasonable fare. Friendly crew. A/C plug for every seat."
Cons: "No IFE -- free service over wi-fi glitchy and not compatible with Galaxy S7. Baggage slow (~30min) after arrival."
Pros: "The flight overall was excellent. I was impressed the flight was on time and we arrived early. The price was great for a non stop flight - there should be more of these!"
Cons: "There is not much space in the seat and the plane was completely full, therefore, felt a little stuffy. Need more room in seat area, but understand all domestic flights are like this."
Cons: "They take to different cities end up flying more than 24 hours I will never flight with united"
Cons: "Flight changed several times. No voucher given for inconvenience"
Pros: "Crew and employee attention"
Cons: "Rude people. other fliers/customers"
Pros: "That we arrived alive"
Pros: "Service and the fluido instrucciones video"
Pros: "The seats were comfortable. The crew was kind and attentive."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Two hour delay for no reason. Was not kept informed on anything throughout the delay/flight."
Cons: "The flight from Houston to Chicago was delayed 1 Hour and we almost missed our connection that hand a 1hour 20 minute lay over."
Pros: "guess that the only thing I liked is that there was no problem during the flight."
Cons: "When we landed un Houston it took forever to get off the plane. It was unclear where to get my luggage. I had to leave it to pass through TSA to run and try to catch my flight from Houston to Chicago. When I arrived at my gate I got there just in time because they were starting to board the plane. I was uconfortable sitting between two men. I traveled alone. When we landed in Chicago, took forever to get to the gate so we can get off the plane. There was no entertainment, at least for me. My phone was way low in battery and ai couldn't watch anything."
Pros: "Captain kept us up to date on delay; didn't keep in the dark."
Cons: "Delayed flight for 2 hours; lot of confusion at the gate."
Pros: ". We got back 30minutes early then schedule!"
Pros: "I had booked with a competitor and when they cancelled my flight and offered no alternatives I had to purchase a one way ticket with United. I suddenly realized why I don't ever want to fly with a budget airline ever again!"
Pros: "It was night time. The passengers were tired sleepy. I loved it. I needed that."
Cons: "Well what I don't like has nothing to do with the company. Turbulence, that's like a bumpy road with no bottom. Jesus!!!"

The flight was delayed several times & left over an hour late

Cons: "I had a quick trip planned for a hiking expedition into the Grand Canyon. The day of my flight into Las Vegas my flight was initially delayed over 3 hours, then canceled entirely. I had to buy another ticket from another carrier. On such short notice the ticket was quite expensive. Then, leaving Las Vegas my flight was also delayed, this time for over two hours. Luckily the flight still went and I was able to get home. Obviously, you pay less money to fly Frontier (although baggage fees are quite expensive) and with that I recognize the seats are less comfortable and there are less amenities, however, the delay and cancellation added a lot of stress to an already short trip. I will think twice before booking tickets with Frontier again."
Cons: "When I was at the ticket booth checking my bag. The young man was rude to me and acted like he didn’t care to help. I told him I would also like to add my ktk aka pre check on to my ticket and he said he couldn’t do it. It seemed like he didn’t know what to do. I almost missed my flight due to not having pre check on my ticket. Every airline I’ve flown has never gave me this problem. I get anxiety more than most people do and this guy just made it even worse. I ensured I gave my the right numbers/letters for my pre check and he still couldn’t get on the ticket. I will never fly frontier airlines due to this"
Pros: "n/a"
Cons: "I got a notification that my 11:20AM flight from MIA to ORD is delayed for 5 minutes. Upon arrival in airport, I was told that there's a mechanical problem with the plane in ORD and that the plane hasn't left ORD (flight time 3:20). Thankfully, we had a place to stay for a day so we asked to be re-booked for the flight for the next day. Others took a refund and went to book a flight on a different airlines. Others had to wait until arrival of equipment and their plane didn't leave until 8:15PM that day (meaning they had to be in the airport for 9 hours!) I understand that the airline has limited amount of equipment and crews, but earlier notification would have been appreciated"
Pros: "The crew was great. I had two amazing landings."
Cons: "There are too many additional fees. It's bad enough that I had to pay for a carry on bag....but to actually have to pay for a seat!!??? I thought my fare paid for a seat? I know I would still get a seat if I didn't pay, but I would have no idea where that seat would be until boarding. I'd rather the price of the ticket be raised by $60 and I get a free carry on and choose my seat. I paid $70 For bags and $56 for seating. And what's worse, the seats were TERRIBLE. They used to be a go to, now I will run from Frontier if I can help it."
Cons: "Air traffic control issues kept us from leaving on time. They did a good job of catching us back up, and even though we were late, they made up time. I like the design of the plane where the seats are thinner and there is more leg room. I had quit flying Frontier because of the measuring of the carry ons, feeling like cattle being herded, etc. This was a better experience, with the exception of the carry on expense. With that and charging for every little thing, your prices are not any cheaper than any other airline."
Pros: "Flight arrived very early"
Cons: "At check in staff were trying to make me check in a bag that's a carry on size. I have carried this duffle bag as a carry on for years with various airlines. I had a normal size duffle bag ands tag at check in were being extremely pushy advising me to pay an additional $40 to check in my duffle bag. He stated if I didn't check it in now they would make me pay an additional $60. I decided to take the risk and not check it in and I had no problems with my bag at the gate. I'm not sure if this is something they do to profit more money, but it was definitely an inconvenience going back and forth with the staff about my bag."
Pros: "All employees I interacted with were very friendly. Return flight arrived early."
Cons: "I thought I had found a great deal when I bought my Frontier ticket. Later, I learned they not only charge a fee to check a bag (increasingly common) but to carry on a bag. Basically, if your travels require, you know, clothes or any personal belongings, you'll be paying an additional $30-60 each way. In my case, it was an additional $70 total which means it was no longer my perceived "great deal". On the first flight, I thought I missed the beverage service..oh well. On the return flight, I realized they apparently don't even do a true beverage service because I finally had to ask an attendant for water just so I could take my medication. What else...it was an international flight and they had zero writing utensils to lend to fill out the customs forms. When I arrived at the airport for my return flight I discovered they were the only airline for which you couldn't check-in at a kiosk. This resulted in being forced to stand in the only giant line when I didn't even have a bag to check. After realizing just how cheap Frontier has become--and that it ends up costing much more, I will never fly them again."
Pros: "Flight crew was excellent. Other ticketing agents helped to ensure that we made the flight.... in spite of the uncaring one..."
Cons: "Seats are super uncomfortable and tight... First ticketing agent calls out our flight... last chance (we were starting the kiosk process) - I call out that we are Chicago flight. She rushes us to the ticketing agent at the counter (46 minutes to departure).... ticketing agent at counter says "You'll have to stand in line over there for the next flight... should've been here 45 minutes or more..." I make my case (loudly) that we ARE here in time, and that we will only be delayed because she is dragging her feet. supervisor comes over and does something; tickets spit out and we are off to run to the gate. Make it; but way out of breath; and there is still plenty of time to board the plane."
Pros: "We had a very simple flight down from Denver to Houston. We were going on a cruise after the holidays. The airline lost our luggage and then every single associate that we talked to was rude, unhelpful and seemed to make the situation worse. As we needed our luggage for the cruise I was on the phone for a good majority of our first day on vacation getting little, to no help. Finally I was able to get help from the service that actually delivers the luggage. 5 stars for them! When I spoke to someone on the phone after all of thos they agreed to refund part of my luggage fees but I would like to have them all refunded as I paid a lot of money to even gt the bag on the flight and I did not receive what I paid for. Overall it is doubtful that I will ever fly Frontier again, and I will NEVER Suggest them to my friends or family. Terrible experience to say the very least."
Cons: "crowded seats, no room for my knees, since the kids behind us had little room they were constantly kicking our seats and crying, the aisles were too narrow, the seats were uncomfortable, we did not understand that we had to pay an extra chg for our seats which should be part of the original charge (that's ridiculous!), had to pay an unbelievable extra chg for something to drink, and then if that wasn't bad enough, we had to wait for over an hour for our luggage! Never again will we book Frontier!"
Cons: "at 4:30 pm I had a text alert that the flight was delayed by 8 hours yet there was nothing done to replace crew who were going over their max hours. The pilot and both stewardess told different stories. At 1 am in the morning they claimed they were looking for replacements. It is bad enough having a flight canceled and having to drive 840 miles or wait up to 2 days to be rescheduled....but to have blatant lies told was even worse. Then cancel due to weather...when that was not the case..so baggage fees cannot be refunded. The baggage fees were almost as much as the airfare."
Pros: "Not only were my fiancé and I hit with $130 in fees for baggage, the night prior we decided to upgrade our seats to row 1 for extra leg room for an additional $90. Little did we know for that price we'd be jeopardizing the ability to reclining our seats...on a red eye flight. I'm incredibly disappointed in frontier. I use to fly them frequently to/from SFO to the Midwest and the quality of service has decreased tremendously! These additional fees you tack on are taking advantage of customers and unethical. My family and I will not be flying with Frontier again."
Cons: "When I arrived two hours early to my flight, it was the first time I heard it had been cancelled. Apparently, due to weather. They said the only time they could get me out would be three days from then or they could refund me. No, they refused to pay for another ticket. So, I had to spend $435 on a ticket for later in the day when I had spent $130. Then, I look to Denver's weather and its perfect for the day. I call my mom, she's outside without a jacket! Where is the weather pray tell Frontier. This is the third and last time I ever use Frontier. Frontier is the worst airline I have ever used."
Cons: "Only airline in the airport with delays from a snow storm 3 days ago!! About 7 hours in the airport with multiple delays before it was canceled. No other flights available for a week. Refunds available (supposedly) but had to wait in lines over 10hours long or through their phone service with significant waits before being routed to their website which was pointless. Some people were waiting over 10 hours to pick up their checked bags from previously canceled flights. Hundreds of flights were canceled the day before as well. Again, this was the only airline in the airport with these issues. Other flights were leaving without problem. I will never fly frontier again."
Pros: "I enjoyed that I had an aisle seat when I chose a random seat instead of paying for one. The crew seemed nice, a little overwhelmed but I had limited interactions with them. Boarding was fine and I was relatively comfortable on the plane."
Cons: "I did not like that Frontier allowed for multiple people on the plane to yell and scream about the flight being delayed and how terrible their service was using lewd, degrading language that I felt unconfortable listening to after spending 6+ hours traveling before I even got on the plane! As a holiday traveler I am aware that there are delays and things are congested, maybe I'm the only one. I did not enjoy that I had to be subjected to that while sitting on an airplane that landed 45 minutes before even reaching gate. This continued on to the baggage claim section for another 45 minutes until finally I told the guys to shut up! The 2 men should have had security called on them or taken to another room to air their grievances instead of subjecting the rest of us to their tirade. I was extremely uncomfortable and disappointed in the way Frontier airlines at O'Hare handles disgruntled passengers and will most likely not fly Frontier again despite having a relatively enjoyable flight."
Pros: "Flight was at a low price and convenient."
Cons: "Mobile app was not working correctly and a ticket agent helped me purchase there at a discounted price. On the way back the ticket person didn't help at all and said she knew they were having problems with the mobile app. Said she could do nothing and quickly gave me a customer service number to call. Wow that was really effortless. If you have an app to purchase at a lower price for carry on and it is not working then have a back up plan to help you customer get what is advertised. Like it was a bait and hook. Besides that everything else was OK."
Pros: "The flight attendants were fairly kind and considerate when going about their job."
Cons: "I fly a lot and have taken a fair share of disappointing flights but this one certain hits the top. The boarding process was chaotic; the woman at the counter was down right rude and did not once make eye contact. The flight crew was close to useless when people were taking too long to be seated or placing bags in the overhead. I cannot rate food or entertainment because frontier is too cheap to even hand out tiny bags of mixed nuts. You certainly pay for what you get. Then we all waited 45 minutes for our bags to be unloaded at baggage claim. That is an unacceptable amount of time! Only for me to realize my bag was lost and somewhere in Mississippi. I've been traveling as a frequent flyer member on united and American for five years and I was considering joining frontier'/ program but after this experience I need to reevaluate."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I didnt like the fact that I couldn't talk to someone here in the United states for frontier. I didn't like that when I called customer service I was instructed to do the wrong thing and fill out the wrong form. And most of all I really hated that my flight was cancelled and my money put into a "shell credit" and when I went to re book the fight it cost 3 times the amount than I originally paid. Overall this has been a horrible experience and I will be tell everyone I know and even people I don't know via Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and snap chat about my experience . Overall I feel your service and your service provider failed miserably."
Cons: "I showed up to get boarding pass and no one was at counter. I waited and when she finally showed up she wouldn't let me check my bag that I already paid for online saying I must be there 45 min prior. I was exactly 45 min prior but waited for someone to come check me in. Therefore I JD to open up my suitcase and throw away every product I had since I was carrying my bag on. Trying to rack my brain if that was everything I ran to security. They ran my suitcase through scanner and checked my suitcase 3 times which took a very long time all bc of a wine key I had and forgot about. Finally finished I ran to my gate only for them to tell me it was too late. I am a frequent flyer and am very aware of what to take and not to take on a carry on. But bc it was supposed to be a checked bag it was a nightmare. I have never missed a flight and I have always gone through every airport in the states and internationally quickly and stress free. I will not be flying with frontier again."
Cons: "Keep in min someone else bought my ticket. However, is was ridiculously priced. Then you have to pay for carry on bag which is ridiculous and costs more than a checked bag. On the flight there were no tvs. No big deal because I don't feel like giving them more money. However, you don't even get water or anything to drink. So I sat there suffering with a dry throat the entire time. My friend asked for a cup of ice and they wanted $2. On top of that we hoarded the plane well after we were supposed to be already in the air."
Pros: "The crew were the best flight crew I have had, funny, enthusiastic, happy to help and very friendly. If all your crews were like that it would be awesome"
Pros: "The plane did not crash. That is the only positive aspect of the trip I could come up with."
Cons: "I paid for my checked luggage, which was expected and fine, however I was told my carry-on bag was okay but it was not. After my ticket had been scanned at the gate and I was already halfway down the gangway, a gate agent began yelling at me to come back. The other passengers looked at me like I was a criminal or something and it was quite humiliating. The agent said (rather rudely) that I had to pay an additional $40 for my carry-on. I explained that I was told the bag was fine when I was at the ticket counter but they did not care. They further informed me that I was paying $10 more for my bag than I would have at the ticket counter, leaving me feeling scammed. I emailed the company immediately upon arrival, explained the situation, and asked for a refund of the carry-on fee given the unusual circumstances. I was flatly refused. Horrible experience, horrible employees, horrible customer service, horrible airline. Their ticket prices might be low, but that only seems to be to lure customers in so they can be tricked and swindled for more money. I paid more for my bags than I did for my ticket!! This company seems to operate on a "bait and switch" business model and through some research I did on them following this experience I found they already have compliants against them to the Better Business Bureau. AVOID THIS AIRLINE AT ALL COSTS!!!"
Pros: "The airline crew was fine. The flight itself was fine."
Cons: "During an extended delay, Frontier airport staff neglected to communicate with the planeful (approx 200) passengers waiting to board our flight from Denver to Chicago. Although the flight time was changed several times, no accurate information was given to the waiting passengers. We were only told we did not have a crew, and if a crew was not found, the flight would be cancelled. The Frontier staff did not seem to care whatsoever about the effect of the extended delay on the passengers, or the very possible cancellation of the flight. In the end, the flight boarded about 2 1/2 hours late, and arrived 3 hours after its initial scheduled arrival time."
Cons: "The highway to the airport in Phoenix was shut down due to a murder on the highway. I took an alternate route. Then the construction at the airport and the signage was terrible. I stood in line curbside to check my bag at what I thought was frontier but it was delta. By the time I got to the frontier desk, they closed the flight. They said they could get me on the flight but not my bag. My bag had my sales materials in it. It had to go with me. I ended up on a United Flight. Cancelled Frontier and they charged me 99.00 to cancel!!! And I had trip protection but it does not cover incidents like this! UGH! It was my first experience with Frontier. I did not know they were fee heavy. I will not fly them again."
Pros: "I sat in the first row, so the leg room was pretty good."
Cons: "Kayak quoted ticket prices in search results that were not consistent and I didn't know off the top of my head that Frontier makes you pay for all luggage, even carry ons. The woman at the ticket counter did not notice my luggage and let me know that I needed to pay extra for it, so I paid twice as much at the gate ($60) after being pulled out of the boarding line. These results should be marked differently so it's not so difficult to figure out which tickets are actually less expensive. Only water on the flight (unless you want to buy a can of soda for $5), only one chance to get water, food is also only for purchase. No entertainment options. An oil slick of grease and grime over my window. Very, very unimpressed."
Pros: "Newer jet, clean, smooth flight"
Cons: "Two of the three flight attendants were a little obnoxious. Before we took off, the female African American attendant openly said that people weren't listening to her about stowing carry on bags and said "this is like dealing with a bunch of 2-yr olds" uncalled for in my opinion. The only male attendant was insincere on his announcements and it's the first time I've ever flown (hundreds before) where on two occasions he asked for people to clean up after themselves. Also the lines at the sole checkin desk in Seattle was too long. Should have had more than one person checking people in. I'd not recommend this airline if I was asked today what my opinion was."
Pros: "The actual flight itself was smooth and as expected."
Cons: "Everything else but the actual on air time itself was awful. At ORD the lines were short/fast but the agent was a little rude, it was my first time flying Frontier so I just had a few questions and she made me feel like I was annoying her or wasting her time. At the gate the boarding process was as expected, except I think the gate agent could have done a bit better crowd control, it was really cumbersome to get across the multitudes of people with unassigned seats or later zones that were clogging up the entrance just standing there. The flight was smooth. Upon arrival at PHX luggage took upwards of 30+ minutes to arrive and some passengers had to wait much longer. My luggage arrived damaged. I filed a report at the Frontier desk but their response was to ask me to leave my broken luggage there, take my items in clear trash bag and wait for a voucher. How am I supposed to take my items to a hotel for business meetings in a trash bag? That's not an acceptable solution to a problem I did not create, baggage handlers did it. When I got to the hotel I realized that the items I had on the front pocket of my luggage were tampered with and one item was missing. I was told I could go spend the money to replace my luggage and bring them back the receipt, and then leave them the broken luggage cause and I quote "you can't have it all". What does that even mean? I can't have MY luggage? That I brought in perfect condition and the baggage handler broke? Come on. They did not explain if they would offer a refund immediately upon receiving my receipt, it was all very rushed and vague and I was going to miss my transport so I had to leave. They did not give me a claim number or a number to call back at. Nothing. I wasn't even being rude or loud or annoyed like some customers get when these things arise. I understood perfectly that it was an accident and these things happen, but I still deserved a proper response and decent treatment, since I just paid $45 for a checked bag only to have it be broken. On the day of my departure from PHX I arrived at the airport on time, 2 hours and 15 minutes earlier from my departure. I stood in line at Frontier for an entire hour to check in my luggage even though I had checked in online and already paid my fee. I asked if there was a place for people who already were checked in and a rude airport staff member told me to just "get back in line". After waiting in line for that long suddenly the desk agent yells to all the passangers from a flight to Denver to move up to the front of the line, so about 100 or more people move ahead of me despite the vast majority of them having arrived late. I understand their flight was leaving earlier but what about our flight? How is it reasonable or fair to reward people for being late and make people who have been dutifully and calmly waiting in line FOR AN HOUR standing with heavy bags wait even longer? The whole thing was just terrible!"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Garbage airline"
Cons: "The flight price looked great and like I was saving money, I was very wrong. By the time that I was charged to select my seat, pay for my one bag, and pay for a soda on the flight, I could have flown a different airline and saved money. The flight was delayed both ways. The way home was even worse. It was delayed 4 hours because of three different issues and we had to change plans. The crew was extremely rude to people who were inquiring about the delays. I will never, ever fly this airline again..."
Cons: "The discount terminal at LAX was a zoo. The flight was pushed back multiple times, with gate changes, and I think we left almost three hours after the scheduled departure. There was little acknowledgment of the delay -- something like a free beverage would have been nice to make up for the scheduling inconveniences. The flight itself was very spartan and the lack of cushioning or reclining made it a pretty uncomfortable few hours. After touchdown, we were on the tarmac for at least forty minutes waiting for a gate to open up. This was not a good experience -- I felt like a fifth-class (or lower!) traveler and I will probably pay a little more to avoid flying with this airline in the future."
Pros: "Getting off the plane."
Cons: "For starters, we scanned our tickets at one gate and boarded at another. First time I've ever seen that. There weren't enough Gate Agents to manage things so I waited in line for 40 minutes to pay your ridiculous $60 carry on fee. By the time someone was able to help me, my boarding group had already boarded. I ended up paying the fee and was forced to gate check my bag anyway as all the overhead space was taken up by the time I got on the plane. Nice work on your end milking that $60 from me. Since I wasn't able to check in ahead of time, I was stuck in the middle seat (I'm 6'5"). I would have happily paid an extra $250 to not sit in the middle, but thats besides the point. Just as I'm about to close my eyes, your stewardess gets on the PA and starts hawking Frontier credit cards for 20 minutes. If that wasnt bad enough, she had the audacity to shove an application in my face and remind me 'its the best credit card in the industry!' The credit card pitch and "buy 3 get 1 free' happy hour offers made the flight feel more like a sad Panama City spring break than a return flight after a long business trip. Alas! We landed at ORD 'on-time' which is always good for Frontier's stats. Unfortunately, we sat on the tarmac for 30+ minutes waiting for someone to man the sky bridge. Oh, and it was a nice touch deplaning in the international terminal returning from a Kansas City flight. Long story short, Frontier is now in the same category for me as Spirit Airlines. You fooled me once, but you wont fool me again. I'm just glad it was a one-way ticket. PS: when did airlines start soliciting tips for the flight crew? In all my years of traveling, I have never seen that before. Embarrassing."
Pros: "Flight arrived early on first leg and on time second leg."
Cons: "I didn't like that I was charged 40 dollars each way for a CARRY ON! REALLY? 80 additional dollars? I might have considered another airline if I had known you were going to bend me over at the gate.Very misleading on the fares. Should be in big flashing letters. "HEY IF YOU HAVE MORE THAN ONE CARRY ON IT"S $40 BUCKS EACH WAY! The new SLIMLINE PRE-RECLINED SEATS were not comfortable. The fact that even a small snack or drink was charged for was also a disappointment. Why not just be honest about your fares and and raise them a little say maybe 5.00 dollars and allow 1 carry on with an additional laptop bag or purse? Very misleading in that respect. But I give them props (pun intended) for being on time. That was the best part. I'd give them and over all 3.9 just because of the misleading stuff. Otherwise they would have gotten a 5 out of 5."
Pros: "Nothing except the flight attendants tried to be pleasant"
Cons: "On a Friday night the flight was over 4 hours late. There was nobody at the gate the entire time and no notifications on the board we had to find it by calling customer service or notifications on our phone that were confusing. No apologies or explanations were ever offered. No refunds and to add insult to injury when we finally got on the flight they still insisted on charging for a soda. The seats are barely better than sitting on a bus, hard plastic with minimal cushion they are narrow but the leg room is adequate. They took away an entire day literally noon to 9 pm from everyone just wanting to get home or a get away weekend in Chicago and offered nothing, in 2 hours they could have sent another plane from the hub in Denver but felt it was better to ignore probably 150 customers for 6 hours. they could have rescheduled the flight for a later time allowing people to leave the airport and come back or given people food vouchers none of which they did. They could've done a lot of things but chose to be a low-cost airline which they must have felt somehow validated poor customer service."
Cons: "Our flight was scheduled to leave at 4:15, their was another flight at the same gate scheduled to leave at 3:45. It was unsurprisingly not enough time to board the flight before. While in that extra time of waiting for our plane to come to the gate after the flight before took off a hail storm hit. Had we been on time we would have avoided the storm. We also taxied in Chicago for over 20 minutes waiting for our gate. I ended up missing two of my buses to my final destination which was very frustrating."
Pros: "The flight landed early."
Cons: "We spent 15 minutes taxi-ing off and on the runway. Baggage was sent out 27 minutes after passengers left the aircraft. My seat was at the end of the aircraft, and I had to pay extra for that, and had sticky gum all over it. When I told the flight attendant, she said, oh no, really? The flight attendant did nothing to help me be reaseated or clean my seat. After a passenger vomited, the flight attendant did not help the passenger by providing anything to cleanup. The aircraft stank of vomit as we sat in the runway for 15 minutes. The flight attendants woke me up to sell their credit card, but not to provide refreshments/water. The announcements went on for over 10 munutes. My seat was surrounded by screaming and crying infants and nothing was done to help those mothers calm their children down. The seats had very little leg room for anyone my height and taller (5'9"), despite having to pay for the seat. I will not fly Frontier ever again. The upfront low price doesn't reflect the baggage, carry-on, and seat add-on fees, so it's very deceiving."
Pros: "It was a short flight."
Cons: "This is as much against kayak as Frontier. If you display a price that includes all fees and taxes then that's what you expect a particular airfare will cost. When shopping on Kayak most people are looking for the best deal. If upon the day I fly I effectively have to pay the equivalent of the original fare AGAIN just to carry on my bag then I feel deceived. If I had known the actual cost to fly Frontier the day I selected this fare I would never have chosen Frontier. And I never will again. The ticket counter employees are obviously tired of hearing such complaints as well. They are a surly bunch."
Pros: "Text message notifications of flight delay, considering my flight was delayed multiple times, quickness of boarding, and short wait times at the ticket counter"
Cons: "The carry on baggage fee that I was informed of as I was boarding, causing delay to other passengers while other guests and myself are waiting to pay for a bag, or forced to throw items away. There is no reason for a carry on bag the size of a backpack to cost $30. I understand most airlines have started charging these fees now, but it is ridiculous to get to the airport and have to pay for every bag. I can buy a flight for $54 and end up paying twice that much just in baggage fees. Also why do the room in the seats seem to get smaller every time, no headrest, and I can barely fit a book on my tray table. A few money saving techniques male the flight that much less comfortable"
Pros: "I liked the low price"
Cons: "I didn't like that as a disabled young person the airline did not accomodate my injury. The previous 7 times I've flown since my injury each and every airline has given me priority boarding AS WELL as priority seating with more leg room. I cannot bend my right knee enough to sit in a regular airline seat. The entire 4 hour plane ride I was in pain and had to consume more then normal pain medication to make it through the flight. It's absolutely unacceptable in 2016 to comepletely disregard persons with disabilities when it comes to flying. I plan on writing a letter to Frontier airlines, as well as any affiliated companies they work with. I will not rest until it's assured this does not happen to anyone else."
Cons: "I was helping my mother - in - law check in and board - she needed wheel chair assistance. We were in line to drop off a bag that we had checked in online an hour before the flight. There were 5 people in the line with only 2 reps helping. Since I hadn't printed the boarding pass, I tried to print the pass at the self-help kiosks getting the message that I needed to see an agent. The cut-off for checked in baggage is 45 mins before the flight, however the reps were making no effort to expedite the service. In 15 mins they had helped 2 people making us the 3rd in line and the line had grown to an additional 5-6 people behind us. 45 mins before the flight they refused to take in any bags for checking - in. Since I was able to take the checked in bag with me, I asked that the agent print the boarding pass for my mother in law and call for wheel chair assistance. The agent called for wheel chair assistance but refused to print the boarding pass! The one thing that the ticketing / check in agent should be able to do is to print a boarding pass for a reservation that is fully paid. Because of this my mother in law had to miss her flight and we paid an additional $99 to get onto the next flight. I was so taken aback when the agent refused to print the boarding pass, that I did not even know how to convince her to do her job. This is probably the worst experience I have ever had with any airline!"
Pros: "Very nice crew. Arrived early. Modern spiffy cabin, seats are molded on backs so a bit more room for passengers. I loved being able to add a tip on food bill, a way of expressing appreciation for the crew has been missing for too long."
Cons: "Seats don't recline! I think my back started to hurt because I couldn't change seat; standing up helped. There's no charge for carrying on personal items but I saw a family with personal size shopping bags that was shocked to learn that a carry on suitcase wasn't a personal item and woul cost $60 (can that be right?). I tried to help them and could see that their English wasn't too strong. They hadn't understood the clear written rules and were severely punished to the point of crying - they won't fly Frontier again."
Cons: "Seriously, it was a horrible experience. Everyone complains that they're misleading with the cost, but it really just adds up to what you pay on other lines, maybe slightly less still. BUT, so not worth it. Spend the extra money elsewhere. Terrible customer service. Seriously, there were 3 people that were nice, everyone else was flat out rude. Both on the phone and in person. And I was nice to them even though I was really upset, which was hard to do. Our first flight was delayed 8 hours for maintenance. We got a $10 food voucher and a $100 flight voucher. Not the best compensation considering the duration of our time in the airport and the cost of food, plus the fact that our flight was more than $100. We couldn't use the flight voucher on our return flight because it was already booked (even though a supervisor prior to that said we could), so that was worthless since I have no interest in flying with them ever again. I found out later that the flight voucher can at least be used for baggage and seat selection on the return flight, which no one mentioned even when I specifically asked multiple people (including a different supervisor) what it could be used for. But that didn't help me out either since... the flight back was flat out cancelled 40 mins before it was due to leave because they didn't have a crew to fly it due to weather issues elsewhere. The next flight they could get us on was two days later or 2 weeks later... We got a refund, but of course since it was such short notice then booking on another airline was far more expensive and they don't make up the difference. It seemed like Frontier runs things so tight that they don't have any backup plans for what I would assume are not wholly uncommon things, like maintenance and weather issues. And, as other people have pointed out, they were the tiniest seats I have ever seen. All I could think once we got on the plane was, "Thank God I'm not fatter or taller and thank God we weren't stuck on the plane itself!""
Cons: "I arrived at the airport 2 and 1/2 hours early for my flight... When I get there the line to just check a bag is swirling around the airport. I was disappointed I'd have to wait in said line but I went to the end to start the process of getting it done. About 30 mins into this line one of your employees starts calling off flights ones I'm assuming wee leaving soon so those people got to cut to the front of the line. A respectable thing but also very frustrating for the people actually waiting in line because it stopped movement completely. After they get those people out the line starts moving again but the one person controlling the line leaves and the people in the back feel untitled to bumrush forward and open up one of the crowd control polls and get to the front at which point everyone else is stuck to wait for the back of the line to go first. No one stopped them just let them go right ahead and make me wait. So at this point I've been at the airport for about an 1 hour and 15 mins. Not even through the line. As I approach the front finally an employee comes out and closes the crowd control line that made it possible for everyone to cut when I pointed that out they gave me excuses and were very rude. My flight was boarding in the next 45 mins and closing gates in the next hour or so. Next they start calling flights again ones that need to get through because they won't make their flight if they won't. My flight home is one of those. I'm at the front of the line so I figured I'd just be allowed to check my bag and get going but instead she lets people that I watched walk in less then 15 minutes ago go in front of me. I was furious I had been waiting 1 and 1/2 hours and people who showed up 15 mins ago are probably going to make MY flight while I wont.. I point this out to the lady and she says I'm just trying to get everyone to their flights and I do appreciate that but they were going about it all wrong. I finally checked my bag with probably 40 mins to spare before doors open to board and 1 hour before doors close. I turn the corner to look at security and feel defeat because I know there's no way I'll realistically make it through I turn around to talk to a supervisor about what she can do.. Get me on another flight? At least tell me they will work on their tactics of the bag check line. But instead the supervisor tells me that I have to try to get through security and that its my problem and they will deal with me at the gate if I don't make it. I hurry into line at security and we are not moving. All of a sudden the security line starts picking up because they brought the dogs out. I get through security with about 3 mins to spare I start running I get to my gate on the dot of gate close and the only reason I made it is because of delays due to maintenance which I had asked to reseive updates on my flight that wasn't given to me."
Pros: "The entire experience was horrific."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 4 hours. Reason being there was no crew due to the reason there was a snowstorm in Denver. Second, there was afamily ask for sitting in front of. The kids were out of control the parents nor the flight attendant said anything. The kids were banging on the armrest and the table. BirdTo you, I say you have won over the heart of my best friend. You have won over my heart, and the hearts of all of her friends and family. We’re giving her away to you, know that you’re marrying one of the most wonderful women in the entire world. May you cherish her, the way we all have. May you love her the way we all have. May you overcome any challenges your future faces. To you, I say thank you. Thank you, for making my best friend’s dreams a reality. Thank you for giving her the fairy tale she so very much deserves.Third , the turbulence was horrific!"
Pros: "When I boarded and saw the thin, molded seats I braced myself for a long, uncomfortable flight, however to my surprise the seat was the most comfortable Economy seat I have sat in over the last few years. Nothing on United, Americannir Delta compares. Nicely done! In other reviews people have complained about the cost of stowing carry on luggage. I found the disclosures about the fees very clear and easy to understand, which enabled me to select the best option for me. Even when the beverage cart came by and I requested a Coke Zero (which they had!) the flight attendant, verily politely reminded me that they do charge. As I told her, at 30,000 ft, $1.95 seems very reasonable for a can of soda. There were no surprises, and the staff was great. I will definitely fly again."
Pros: "Flight attendants and gate personnel were very gracious. Nice flight (weather cooperated) and no delays."
Cons: "Desk personnel at ORD were horrible, very abrupt, and just plain angry. Everyone has a bad day, but I'm easy to deal with and the only thing I did was step one foot over the "wait" line to the counter. I apologized after you snapped at me and continued to smile... while you continued to frown and be condescending. That alone means I don't fly your airline again. I can afford the extra for Delta and I should have stayed there. Seats were really uncomfortable and though we paid extra for the better seats, leg room was at a minimum. Again, about what I expected. All told, for 1 bag and a little more legroom, we paid an extra $115 per tick. Not really any savings over a more full-service airline."
Pros: "Point A to point B"
Cons: "This is probably a common statement, but I will never fly Frontier again. Kayak costumers should be especially wary since Frontier's main strategy is extracting fees for things everyone expects to be free. You will pay $30-40 for either checked OR carry on bags You will pay $15+ just to have the seats you bought next to eachother. You will pay $20 more for any of those seats to recline at all This would be ok, but the bag fees alone more than erased any savings I got on the tickets."
Pros: "The fast boarding"
Cons: "The price of the flight did not include information about the luggage and seat fees. As a dependent of an active duty service member, I have never had to pay for luggage. Ever. And to have to pay for a seat on the plane, an additional $150 round-trip for luggage and pay for water on the flight too, it made me very angry. I will never use Frontier Airlines for any or my travels, nor will I ever recommend that anyone uses them either. In fact, I have already told friends and family to avoid Frontier because they are a total rip off!"
Cons: "PAYING FOR A CARRY-ON?! That's bad form. Paying for sit down after we have already bought tickets? Just be up front with your costs. Thankfully I called the airline and was told if I didn't pay for a seat, one would be assigned for me on my boarding pass. I was not going to pay even more to actually sit on the flight. Two flight attendants ignored me and when they came to our seats they wouldn't even look at me when I smiled at them and was curious about food. I saw it done to other passengers too. I was extremely disappointed by that. Furthermore, Frontier needs to know how long the flight is going to be. Don't be guessing and then be surprised there is no gate available for you. I was told the flight will be 3 hours and it was advertised as such. In the end it was only 2. That in itself is fine, but where was the organization of the company when planning the flight, especially since the flight itself was smooth overall. I just found it weird. The seats were nice and clean. At least the captain updated us when he could. That, I appreciated. Overall, not the best airline but they'll safely get you fro point A to point B and for that I am thankful."
Cons: "Was not informed of the extra charges for carry on baggage. No food or even snacks included in the trip...not even the basic things like water, blankets and earphones. This was not made clear or indicated in the ticket when I bought it. Would have never bought the ticket if I knew that was not the real and total price. On top of that ... there are no checks in place to make sure that all the passengers had paid for the carry on. I paid but I will dispute the charge and get it back based on the aiirlines' inconsistent practice regarding that. The policy is not enforced on everyone."
Pros: "Nothing , absolutely nothing."
Cons: "She is not home yet. She still stuck in Houston."
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "Everything. No one knew where the plane was. Nothing was updated to let us know what was going on. Plane was disgusting when we got on it."
Pros: "Airline assistants were kind"
Cons: "We landed and we’re told we had to stay on the plane. After an hour and a half they said we would move so we could exit and that didn’t happen for about another 30 minutes after that. What about the people with connecting flights?!"
Pros: "My flight left on time and arrived early. i have no complaints. To be honest I was asleep for the majority of the flight. Spirit gets a bad rap. It’s not as bad as people suggest."
Cons: "There was turbulence but that wasn’t their fault"
Pros: "Cheap"
Cons: "Other passengers were rude, plane was dirty, no entertainment, no food"
Cons: "That would’ve been nice knowing ahead of booking..."
Cons: "Delays on both flight, one being a three hour delay. I will no longer be taking Spirit Airlines anymore."
Pros: "Nice flight"
Cons: "None"
Cons: "Ok, I get that I checked in on the first half of the round-trip too late to get a cheaper rate for checked baggage, why I charged the increased amount for return flight made no sense. Also it would have been nice to know that you needed to check in more than 24 hours in advance to avoid the baggage surcharge. No party to this transaction bothered to tell you."
Pros: "Taking off on time"
Pros: "Timely departure and comfortable flight"
Cons: "Food should be served free of cost"
Pros: "Changed gates 3 times. 45 mins late from Houston - 2.5 hours late from O'Hara in Chicago. Spaced out airlines."
Cons: "See abive"
Cons: "Can't believe how they only let you have one bag (super small) and how they charge you for something to drink!! Ridiculous."
Pros: "The seat in the plane at leased were comfortable. But you had to pay for your drink."
Cons: "We arrived 1 hours before the departure and supposedly we were 5 minutes late. The Spirit staff made us take next day flight and made us paid for the flight and we felted we had no choice to pay and I even had mother 77 years old. I had to give her the bad news. The Spirit staff No consideration."
Cons: "Having to pay for water, I get its bottom dollar fares and no frills, but they could at least through in a drink on a 2hr flight"
Pros: "I arrived just within the 45 minute cut off to get a boarding pass. I told the attendant that I had 2 surgeries scheduled the day after and that several patients and coworkers would be inconvenienced, but both parroted that I should be at the gate at least 45 minutes, which I just barely was thanks to brutal Houston traffic. I told them that I had nothing to check in and the security line was very small and that I would easily get to the gate without risking a delay in departure. I cancelled my $9 Club su subscription tonight after incurring $220 to book on another flight tomorrow morning. I had to reschedule both surgeries because all outbound flight we're booked. I made a very reasonable request for flexibility that certainly would not that delayed the flight departure, so I won't use this airline and further will tell anyone who cares to ask not to use this airline. Oh, and my first leg of the trip was overbooked."
Cons: "I am done with this Fischer- Price operation."
Pros: "Pleasant surprise. Didn't need much luggage since short trip so worked out fine."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I had an awful experience on Spirit today from Houston to Chicago.. We deplaned twice before taking off since there was a cell phone found in the place where it shouldn't have been and it was so disorganized.. I dont think I'm ever going to travel on spirit again!"
Pros: "Nothing. Literally nothing."
Cons: "The entire experience. Woke up to an email saying the flight was delayed- it was delayed three times, so we were at the airport for our 710 flight, and at 740 they canceled it. Did not want to refund us our money, and made no effort to right the situation. They did not offer us another flight, or anything helpful at all. We had to call four times to get a refund on our flights, and the refund still has not come through, over a week later. HORRIBLY dissatisfied. I will NEVER fly Spirit again, they do not care about their customers at all, and I will not support that."
Pros: "It was a comfortable and fast flight."
Pros: "the fact my plane didnt crash"
Cons: "plane was late, gross dirty seats, had to pay for seats to recline, no snacks or beverages provided, no entertainment"
Pros: "I liked the crew and confort"
Cons: "The canceling of the flight and the way they notified me about flight"
Cons: "The flight attendant did gently shove me to wake me.up and ask if I had trash, but I was able to fall back asleep."
Pros: "One customer service woman at the airport."
Cons: "Literally everything else. I could not have had a worse experience. Spirit's online system changed unexplainedly changed our address without our knowledge, therefore preventing me from checking my fiance in online. I spent too much time attempting to talk to them about it over the phone, and ended up being late to leave for the airport. On the drive there, I was able to get ahold of a customer service representative on the phone who purchased my fiance's luggage, seat, and checked her in over the phone. We arrived 43 minutes before the flight, and were turned away while attempting to check in her bag, being told that she was not checked in for the flight, and it was now past the mandatory 45 minutes before flight time and would not allow her aboard. I spent the next 2 hours arguing with customer service, where they accused me of lying and said that they don't even offer to check in people over the phone. I could go on, but it was absolutely awful, and we weren't able to be placed on a flight until the next morning."
Pros: "This plane had more spacious economy seats than normal."
Cons: "No free drink and snack."
Pros: "A very good service and for the right price."
Pros: "The flights are cheap if you fly smart"
Cons: "Everything has a cost."
Pros: "The added leg room in exit is good"
Cons: "Others got bonus legroom for free where i had to pay extra. The massive luggage and carry on fees are excessive"
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "No food to buy"
Pros: "there was long wait in baggage check in counter, improvement on that will be appreciated. otherwise, overall experience is quite good."
Pros: "Relatively nothing."
Cons: "We took off at 6:49PM and landed at 2:30AM... In a different city than our destination! We took off and landed twice in Detroit and were supposed to be in Chicago. Then, our flight got canceled and rescheduled for 10AM the next day. We had to rent a car and drive 5 hours to Chicago, in order to make it to meetings in time. Horrible. Then, they promised vouchers (2 $50 vouchers/passenger) and never even emailed me one!"
Cons: "The first flight, where I departed Chicago, Spirit had booked too many different flights and didn't have enough gates. We had to wait for an available gate and didn't board until an hour after scheduled. On the way back, we also boarded over an hour late. I understand late boarding times due to weather reasons and other factors that pop up, but it just seemed like it was a regular occurrence. Please don't book more flights than you have gates available for!"
Pros: "When a plane arrives late the turn around time is amazing. Doesn't take them much time at all to get going again. Attendants and pilots were professional."
Cons: "Boarding is a mess. You may board by zones but it really doesn't seem to workout. About half the people respect the order about half do not. People cut in line when they haven't even been there waiting. Do something like Southwest and have us board by groupings. They are much smaller units and people get in their correct order. You guys can get portable ones. That would move you all up significantly in the boarding process. That is by far the worst of all categories. The ladies at the gate really can't police that, make it easy for those who are boarding by having a clear and organized process."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They do not care about passenger. First they made us sit on the plane for an hour without giving us any reason than they won't even give us even water without charging. I understand about the weather delay but at least give us water for free. I'm not asking to give me 10 bottles bit at least a cup or 2. Never again"
Cons: "Flight got cancelled..was so upset"
Cons: "Canceled 3 hours prior to take off"
Pros: "Plane was clean and Attendants were courteous."
Cons: "Flight was delayed an hour and had to sit on tarmac for 30 min upon arrival. Understandably not Spirit's fault, but nonetheless was frustrating."
Pros: "Seats on my return flight seemed to be much larger and more comfortable."
Cons: "The website isn't very user friendly when you're trying to print boarding passes, pay baggage fees, etc."
Pros: "The baggage service agent was most helpful. He without me asking carried my bags up two flights of stairs. I offered him some Money for being so kind as to carry them up for me but he refused. Such a kind person."
Cons: "The boarding agent was rude and very short with everyone. Also we landed on the tarmac. And had to walk up two flights of stairs. I had a suitcase with me. I am a senior and could not carry it up the flight of stairs the gate agent just stared at me after I asked for help."
Pros: "The flight went well. We reached our destination before the expected time of arrival. The staff was curteous. The front desk associate assisted me in ensuring that my daughter and I had seats next to each other."
Cons: "Seats don't recline. Snacks have a fee."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Spirit canceled the flight and couldn't book me until the following evening!"
Cons: "I thought you was allowed a carry on for free. Had to pay 120 dollars for a Carry on luggage."
Pros: "Everything about spirit is good !!"
Cons: "Just the delays"
Pros: "I appreciated the price and friendly attitude of flight attendants."
Cons: "Boarding was kind of frustrating. People didn't wait for their group number and kept jumping the line. But it was that I got to move to an open seat further up when we reached cruising altitude."
Cons: "Both flights got cancelled at last minute. Ended up taking United."
Pros: "Initial price was eye catching."
Cons: "Hidden prices for luggage. Found out later and not told upfront. Unprofessional appearance for workers; baggage crew, gate attendants. Boarding pass in paper form needed or pay more. Seats do not recline. I requested to move once in air available seating, but denied. Weight distribution excuse. Required information to log in to website was daunting to get boarding pass. Never going to fly again or recommend."
Pros: "Free carry-on. Some entertainment. Power for devices."
Cons: "Paying for my small carry on"
Pros: "It was a normal flight and the announcements were funny."
Cons: "I arrived at the airport two hours early and didn't find out my flight was delayed until I got to the gate. Then it was delayed a second time."
Cons: "The two delays without any inclement weather."
Cons: "Ohare Airport had us at the wrong terminal to board the plane. By the time I found the correct terminal, everyone was boarding the plane"
