On time to a t. The lead flight attendant Cameron was so kind helping us with luggage as we got on with our two little ones and then gave our son a treat as we headed off.

The flight from Sydney to Adelaide was never ticketed and I was stranded in Sydney! Worst experience ever!

It was so smooth…it was so nice to hsve no issues flying. This was the first time in a while that everything was effortless Thank you

Good but delta needs to be more upbeat about the boarding process in Atlanta

There was a storm brewing in NYC but you would never know it from the flight. Great experience and barely any turbulence considering the storm.

Just a standard Delta flight: comfortable, excellent flight attendants. We had a direct flight, seated in Delta Comfort Plus, so it had a lot going for it, nevertheless, it was a good flight…

Cons: "Less announcements about masks we get it We don’t need instructions on hand washing Drink service needed"

Pros: "Everyone was very courteous, the plane took off on schedule and arrived at our destination early. Also got a complimentary upgrade to Comfort Plus."
Cons: "Ticket price was a bit much, the seats and aisle inside the plane are only made for skinny people. Aisle was barely longer across than my foot, and the guy next to me was a bit bigger than average, leaving me to have to scrunch in my seat the whole flight. Lots of elbows, butts and hips knocking into my shoulders as people boarded."
Pros: "The staff & crew were friendly. I liked having access to free entertainment. I liked being able to see the tracking of my checked bag (notifications)."

Pros: "The movies were great and the boarding was more streamlined.the plane was clean and in good condition."

Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "4 hour flight. Non-eventful except slight turbulence. Good to be home! Thank you!"
Cons: "NA"
Pros: "Yet one more trip that reminds me why I refuse to fly any other airline than Delta. (I fly every week for work.) Top-rate LA crew, flights always departs on time, early to destination more than half the time. Comfortable seats, upgraded to Delta Comfort today. Gate agent was friendly, helpful and joking with passengers. Made it seem like we were all going on an adventure. Kudos to Delta all around!!"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable flight. Seats are to close to each other"
Pros: "With the free entertainment, the time just flew by. From the time we left MSP to the time we landed, everything went smoothly"
Pros: "It was as fast!!"
Cons: "Nothing was offered, my bag was checked at the door but no big deal"
Pros: "Overall great experience"
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: "gate personnel delivered bad news routinely"
Cons: "contingency planning was zero to get flight crews to next flight..."
Pros: "How reassuring the previous crew was that everything would be fine"
Cons: "They lied. Due to delays we got to plane 5 min before scheduled departure. But crew closed plane on our noses. No explanation. No consideration that most of airport was running late"
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."
Cons: "Seated in rear of plane and no food was available when served."

There was no in flight entertainment or snacks for passengers. All other aspects were good.

Better shows in entertainment

Short flight from Houston to DFW. And apparently no InFlight entertainment nor working charging outlet either. Oh well, not too bad as it’s a short trip.

Everything was great!! Boarding was timely and staff was helpful.

Service was great.

Baggage claim was very slow

Bumpy nearly the whole way

Dealing with customer service was a terrible experience. Our flight was changed by the computer system to a different flight a full day later, and we were given no option to change it. It took us a full 6 hours of waiting before we could actually talk to a human on the phone to help us get it fixed. Then we had to talk to customer service at the airport as well which was a 90 minute wait. The employees were wonderful and helpful when we talked to them, but the wait time was unacceptable.

It was perfect

First time I have flown AA in years and remembered why. They can never seem to recognize my AA Awards# but the marketing Dept sure can. So I never get flight credit. The crew was busy txting instead of being polite. I said hello, goodby, and thank you. Got no response back… as usual. I am a normal sized person but the seats are so small even I was uncomfortable. No drinks or real snacks on a 4.5 hr flight? Really? TSA precheck # not on passes even though entered when I purchased. Cherry on top, USB ports broken on all seats in my row… on both flights. WiFi sucks had to buy it just so it would work. At least the pilots know what they are doing. I’m going back to boycotting AA flights. Go Delta! Never have these issues when I fly them.

No food except pretzels were served and no movies available - no comment can be made

Cons: "The past two times flying with American out of Dallas my girlfriend and I have been separated on the flight. The first time we were able to be placed with each other but this time the attendant at the counter basically told everyone that because the flight was booked and there were so many people who had the issue that she could not move anyone around to be with their families. That on top of being rude to many of the flyers just makes the DFW experience with American feel like they don’t care about you."
Pros: "Na"
Cons: "Did not make this flight"
Cons: "Not as crowded as the LAX to PHX"
Pros: "Great crew"
Pros: "Overall very good flight!"
Cons: "Nothing much!"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "NOTHING"
Cons: "AMERICAN IS THE WORST. Never flying with them again. My flight was cancelled, &they would NOT rebook me until 2 days later. REFUSED to compensate for the hotel I booked for the night. Held my baggage hostage & would not return it for a whole day. And their customer service is non-existent."
Cons: "Flight was delayed twice, and the flight was very bumpy and the pilot really had a bad landing."
Cons: "The man in the aisle seat was so obese he took room from the middle seat, which caused that person to lean into my seat. I spent three hours leaning to the right against the wall. If the airlines are going to make the seats smaller, they need to make arrangements for people who don’t fit in the seats. Entertainment didn’t work."
Pros: "On-time departure and arrival, friendly ground staff and flight attendant"
Pros: "Being able to pick your seat ahead of time, comfortable leather seats, snacks, on-board entertainment and free carry on make it worth paying a little extra over the other budget airlines."
Cons: "Constant delays. Maybe it has more to do with O'Hare itself than AA."
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Having to check our carry ons. We noticed another passenger had placed two carry ons in the overhead. If others are doing that, it forces others to check their carryons."
Pros: "Smooth ride, good service."
Cons: "N/A"
Cons: "As soon as I boarded I noticed a strong urine smell. It didn’t really go away, or I just got used to it."
Pros: "On time and convenient"
Cons: "Crowded"
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "More than 3 hour delay, entertainment system audio did not function and the flight path was set to Palm Beach instead of Orange County."
Pros: "I had a connection flight to JFK I came before the time about 15 min and crew saw me but she told me, sorry someone took your seats I lost around 4000$. This happened at Dallas airport."
Cons: "Late , didn't make it on our flight back to Santa Ana"
Pros: "Nice newer plane, beautiful."
Cons: "Though I was in a elite preferred seat (not biz). I had about 6-7 inches from my face to the built in screen in the headrest. Hard not to notice that I couldn’t move an inch without hitting the seat in front of me or passenger next to me."
Pros: "The airline staff was SO kind and helpful. I'm an AA fan now!"
Pros: "On time, crew was helpful and kind, entertainment options were vast."
Pros: "The AA flight attendant staff served good food and enough snacks and beverages to make me feel full on my 11 hour flight. The selection of movies and music was very diverse. And tge flight was an overall enjoyable experience."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They had a delay that bumped our international connection. We had to switch airports and airlines and arrived significantly later than originally planned, causing us to miss pre-wedding events."
Pros: "Very smooth trip from beginning to end."
Pros: "Crew was very nice. Free snacks provided on plane."
Pros: "On time and very professional"
Cons: "The snack had coffee in it."
Pros: "There was a TV. Crew was friendly and professional."
Pros: "I enjoyed the Gps chart showing the flight data from takeoff to landing."
Pros: "Rapid boarding. On time performance. Plane was reasonably clean."
Cons: "Seats were tight but OK for a 3 hr flight. AA allows first passengers to carry excessive carry-on forcing later boarding passengers to check everything."
Cons: "Upon boarding the aircraft, the attendant at the gate told me to check the size of my carryon bag against the test dimensions, which I did. My bag fit but I had to press the side in slightly to make it fit. She said it had to slide in without me pressing on it and proceeded to make me remove items from the bag in order to board the plane. I walked down the ramp with my extra pair of shoes and a book in my hands. As a result, I had to place my bag far from my seat due to the added time. My bag easily fit in the overhead compartment with room to spare and my being made an example was a completely pointless exercise."
Pros: "Staff was honest. Pilot and ground representative kept us updated."
Cons: "Delay while we waited for a crew from Denver and nobody cleaned the plane while they waited. Instead the crew arrives quite late to find a dirty plane. While the plane was being cleaned our Co-pilot was reassigned. We waited on the plane while they scouted up a different co-pilot. This caused another delay. Staff did the best they could but the organizational incompetence was not lost on the passengers."
Pros: "santa ana airport"
Cons: "charged me $50 when i checked in my suitcase."
Pros: "The entertainment selection was wonderful."
Cons: "The flight left on time but arrived late by at least 1/2 hour. I am small but the seat was narrow: my neighbors kept on hitting me when they moved. And I think it is terrible to have to pay to reserve almost any seats except for the middle seats."
Pros: "Flight was quiet and uneventful, but late."
Cons: "no good glutenfree options. How about a Turkey Sandwich on multigrain gf bread? Or a wrap made with corn tortillas? Toasted almonds instead of only pretzles. Or a coconut macaroon instead of a cookie made with wheat."
Pros: "We did get onto another flight that morning in the exit row."
Cons: "I didn't receive an email to check into my flight for Alaskian airline/American Airlines, and when I tried to check in online from my confirmed ticket order the website wouldn't let me check in. When searching where to go at dallas ft.worth (DFW) airport to check in for our alaskian airlines flight the website sold us to go to terminal E 18 where they are, but when we arrived we were in fact flying out of a completely different terminal A, not having enough time to check our bags and missing the flight."
Pros: "Seats were new."
Cons: "A lot less leg room than Southwest. Very cramped. Boarding crew in PHX was very uptight and stressed. Not sure why as everything seemed in order."
Pros: "Polite and professional"
Cons: "No Free Wi-Fi"

Cheapo air. Charged $50 for carrie on bag. Charge for water and peanuts. Very uncomfortable fixed seats. Two hours late both ways.

All good for the price.

It was great for the money, smooth flight and comfortable enough

Delayed 4 hours!!!

Flint airport is an easy airport to use, no muss no fuss. The Allegiant staff there was both friendly and helpful. Flight was good. We did not have food (snacks for sale on plane) or entertainment, but we knew that ahead of time.

An hour of delay.

Black racist stewardess.

3 1/2 delay do to no pilot

It was a creaky plane that felt unstable.

Food was not served

Flight was full. Flight crew was chippy and acted like they didn't want to be there. Lady at the boarding gate was same way.

Cons: "Sat on the runway and at the jetway at LAX for over an hour because they couldn’t locate a ground crew to get everyone off the plane. Changed gates to try to help. What airline can’t get their customers off the plane?"
Pros: "The plane was super clean, no fear of COVID-19."
Cons: "I had problems with baggage and Allegiant staff at the airport were very unhelpful."
Cons: "Late to load and then put us all on the plane and made us sit on tarmac for over 1 1/2 hours"
Cons: "Allegiant plays games with seating to try to milk more money from passengers."
Cons: "More space under the seat in front of me for my carryon"
Pros: "Left on time, arrived early, deplaned quickly because no one had bag"
Cons: "Reclinable seats"
Pros: "Crew unfriendly, unprofessional, and not courteous,"
Pros: "There was nothing outstanding really"
Cons: "It’s a low cost airline, so expectations are very low. Plane was very dirty because it just keeps on hopping back and forth without any cleaning service it seems"
Pros: "Comfort nice cool cabin on boarding"
Cons: "No complaints with airline but flight was a little ruff on approach made me a little nauseous."
Pros: "No leg room & very misbehaved children sitting behind me. The children screamed the whole time, kicked our seats, and the mother had no control. If you are any taller than 5’9”, you may want to consider an exit row seat to have room for your legs. My knees were jammed in to the seat in front of me."
Cons: "There was no way for us to add another bag after our seat placement. No one answered the phone for Alligent and the website didn’t work. It costs $20 extra to do this at the airport. Even though it was not our fault that there was no one answering phone calls (and no way to leave a message)"
Pros: "When you land at Concord you are right near the parking lot!!!"
Pros: "No The crew was not friendly at all"
Cons: "I honestly am angry that I was charged for things others where not.This is ridiculous"
Pros: "Definitely the price. Boarding process was pretty quick. Flight attendants seemed nice."
Cons: "Left a little late, but still arrived on time, so that was okay. Seats aren't the most comfortable, but that's expected. Was still able to get a little nap in."
Pros: "Everything was done right"
Cons: "The landing was rough"
Pros: "Stewardess moved me to a more comfortable seat without me asking."
Cons: "It was to uncomfortable to sit there in the plane for so long. I also noticed one of the flight attendants with the long brunette hair kept over looking me but would be in all the guys faces instead. Pretty sure it was a jelouse thing. The shorter brunette girl was really pleasant"
Pros: "Direct flight in less than 3 hours"
Pros: "Great crew fast service and flight smooth !"
Cons: "I’m tall and have some back issues I found the seats very close and not too comfortable ! I tried to get A seat by the emergency exit but wasn’t early enough on my pick !"
Cons: "The seating is terrible. Everyone is like sardines packed away."
Pros: "Better than on time Smooth sailing through south bend airport!"
Cons: "Just have to remember thrift airline No seat going back"
Cons: "Boarding process"
Cons: "Lost my bag"
Pros: "Great cost. Boarding and crew were seamless and pleasant."
Cons: "As with all airlines, it has all the comfort of a cattle car. No drink service - even water cost you money."
Pros: "Considering the fare was advertised between $350 and $700 with other carriers on Kayak, I took this one for $179, roundtrip, direct from LAX to Grand Junction."
Cons: "When the crew runs to get coffee in the terminal, make sure to do the same. I brought some snacks, but wish I had brought coffee. The man next to me kept creeping into my space which was incredibly annoying, but it was a relatively quick flight. Beats the two day drive from L.A. to Colorado."
Pros: "I never have any issues. Everything is always great."
Pros: "Comfort and speed of the flight. Attentive staff!"
Cons: "Need one craft beer"
Pros: "Everything was good"
Cons: "Could of had more selections on the flight for snacks"
Pros: "Everything they could control went very well."
Cons: "The flight had a lot of turbulence, but that's not their fault. I thought the pullout handled the situation well."
Cons: "Not to be helped, but was a bit bumpy."
Pros: "Flight itself was low in cost. Also, crew member on departure from Fwb was a real sweetheart. E-boarding pass was nice."
Cons: "They charged for everything! Seats, luggage and small snacks. Good thing you can bring your own."
Pros: "flight took off on time"
Pros: "The stewardess was great on trip up there and back!"
Cons: "Little bit bumpy ride in some spots"
Cons: "Not recliner seats"
Pros: "It's like taking the public bus during rush hour. Organized chaos. But I guess you literally get what you pay for so, yeah. The crew was awesome though. No qualms there."
Cons: "Disorganized boarding. Even the extra room seats are cramped. Bathrooms are a step up from a porta potty. DO NOT SIT NEAR THEM unless you plan on holding your breath the while flight."
Pros: "We had kids wound up from Disney and caused all kinds of problems. Normally the attendants are irritated, every single one of these remained genuinely polite. I really thought the staff/crew were great. Other than that the flight was fine, a little late, but all went well."
Cons: "First Allegiant flight, so I did not realize the 40 lb bag limit. Made for a last minute headache during checkin."
Pros: "Bring your own snacks & entertainment you will enjoy your flight. Make sure you eat before your flight. Download the Allegiant Air app to your cell phone you will have a Mobile Boarding pass no need to print use your phone."
Cons: "Delayed. Unprofessional. Attendant laughing while reciting safety announcement."
Pros: "The flight was cheap and no real issues with it. I'm just looking for a cheap flight and no bags lost/delayed and I think Frontier is great! 10/10! :-)"
Cons: "Gummi Bears were out of stock on the plane but no big deal since I bought almond M&M's instead. There isn't too much leg room I guess and no TV or radio but considering the price is cheap that is to be expected. 10/10! :-)"
Pros: "The schedule was timely"
Cons: "Am 6.4 ft my leg did not fit in the chair"
Pros: "Plane was an Airbus, not a 737-8max"
Cons: "Boarding was a zoo and not on time (there or back)"
Pros: "The plane did not crash."
Cons: "Aside from a 3 hour delay that made me miss my appointment for the day, *all* available seats are premium seats with a charge assigned if you choose one. But they magically get you one for free if you don't select one. The seats are TERRIBLE - uncomfortable and don't recline. They charge for a carry-on. Don't fly Frontier if you can afford any other choices. Even water or soda is $3."
Pros: "It was a direct flight and the flight was on time."
Cons: "the baggage fees were outrageous and made this trip much more expensive than if I had gone with a better airline. There is no wifi on the plane and while you can buy everything else, there is no option to buy wifi which is the one thing I would have paid for. The staff was unfriendly at best and one was very rude and frantic. I will not be flying this airlines again!"
Pros: "Air hosts and hostesses"
Cons: "Need more leg space"
Cons: "Extreme turbulence. Crew didn’t do anything to inform or keep passenw"
Cons: "You must pay extra for everything and on top of it the flight attendants only talk about signing you up for the credit card it’s like a stupid commercial the whole flight. Also the carry on bag fee is different for every passenger my wife and I were charged to different prices and the seats suck knees hit the back of the seat in front of you and you must sit straight up the whole flight not even room for a full size try table."
Pros: "simplicity."
Cons: "help but i had to pay to change my flight during Harvey. I paid double because of it. second time they did it free of charge, it should have been free of charge my ticket was 157, it bacame 300+. seats dont recline. tough for your back."
Pros: "2 hour delay"
Cons: "Long wait"
Pros: "Nithing"
Cons: "Rude attendants, filthy plane, charged for soda and ice water.. Will not fly this airline again"
Cons: "Extra charge for carry on bag"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Bad experience!!!!!"
Pros: "It was cheap and the pilot very skillfully navigated us around any turbulence"
Cons: "It's cramped and there isn't even water. When you add the expense of a bag and a drink, it usually is more expensive than other carriers that don't charge for these things."
Pros: "How attentive the crew was. They took time to explain the Frontier app in great detail and answered all my questions."
Cons: "That you had to pay for one piece of luggage. I can see paying for two but not one.The rates are great but it was made up for in luggage charge and price of snacks and soda."
Cons: "There was a lot of turbulence at the beginning of the flight. I would have liked it if the pilot let us know about the bumpy ride."
Pros: "Flight went as expected, no problems"
Pros: "Not trying to be hurtful, but not much. The people sitting next to me were nice. The temperature was fine. Nice takeoff, flight, and landing. The seating in the terminal was comfortable."
Cons: "The boarding was completely disorganized. The crew unprofessional. I overheard one crew member say to another "What is it with these Denver weirdos?". Then they complained about work and passengers the rest of the trip. I was in the front row and they must've assumed I couldn't hear them. I could. I know you're trying to reduce fares and making it an more a la cart experience, but $2.99 for a can of soda? Having to avoid the pile of ice that was dumped by the flight crew into the bathroom sink when i washed my hands wasn't very pleasant. The chairs are still incredibly uncomfortable, even in my "stretch" seating assignment ($35 poorly spent on my part). This trip made me rethink the cost benefit of taking Frontier. Flying United or American may be worth the extra money. And that's coming from someone on a tight budget. I used to enjoy flying Frontier and love taking a plane in general. I surely didn't this time."
Pros: "It is so annoying that frontier is constantly trying to sell you something. Other airlines sell things drinks or food but they are discreet. It's like frontier staff are working in commission."
Cons: "You have to pay for hot tea, coffee when every other airline it's complimentary. Along with paying for carry on bags. Ridiculous!"
Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "Never left! After 5 hours of delays, flight was canceled & 3 says later I still have yet to get by luggage returned FROM A FLIGHT THAT NEVER LEFT THE AIRPORT"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing the flight never took off and I never mad it to my destination."
Cons: "Everything this is the worst flying experience I've ever had in my entire life I will never fly frontier again"
Cons: "The extra charge for a seat is absolutely terrible, or risk not sitting with your travel companion! Also while the airline "alerts" you about the charge a for carry-on bag, I saw no enforcement of that rule and many passengers I spoke with stated they did not pay the extra carry-on baggage fee. The seats were terrible and the tray table was a joke. No complimentary beverages. Awful experience!!!!"
Pros: "Flight attendants were nice."
Cons: "Flight was late, Boarding procedure was not efficient it would help if they seated by seat letter when I boarded I was in seat f by the window but the other two seats were already occupied and they had to get up to let me in this happened numerous times for everyone on the plan causing a long boarding time. Plane had some off issues I think with the fuel pumps or the hydraulics there was a really annoying sound for the entire flight. No wifi Not enough leg room"
Pros: "Front tier flight was canceled due to mechanical problems. Our passenger was not rescheduled on another airline, he had to make his own reservations after that. It took him 18 hours to go from Colorado to California"
Cons: "Front tier flight was canceled due to mechanical problems. Our passenger was not rescheduled on another airline, he had to make his own reservations after that. It took him 18 hours to go from Colorado to California"
Pros: "Clean airplane"
Cons: "Impossible to fit through your aisle to get to main aisle if someone's seat is reclined. I literally had to crawl over the people in the middle and aisle seats because I could y walk in front of them without basically being in their laps. The biggest thing, ITS ALWAYS A DELAYED FLIGHT. I have flown frontier San Diego to Denver and OC to Denver probably over 100 times. I have ALWAYS had a delayed flight do to nothing but poor planning by frontier. It's never weather, 85: never a plane malfunction, just delayed for whatever reasons. It's pretty irritating after years of flying your airline, that you can pretty much always gaurentee a delayed flight."
Pros: "Original price, before the nickel and diming begins."
Cons: "Nickel and diming us on every single thing. Inability to use the tray table for anything more than a cup of water (that must be paid for). Charging for a carry on."
Pros: "The crew and neatness"
Cons: "Entertainment"
Pros: "Sat on tarmac 19 minutes before able to pull into gate in Denver. Unacceptable. Baggage fees are ridiculously expensive. Will NEVER fly this carrier again."
Cons: "I chose Frontier because I got a great price on the ticket. But I had not realized that they charge for bags ($40 for a carry-on) and seats. So by the time I paid those additional fees at check-in I could have been in a full service carrier: One that then did not charge $2 for a soda, that has seats that reclined, and so on. It's a safe bet that I'll not be flying Frontier again"
Pros: "flights were on time, gates close together. They had IPA beer for sale."
Cons: "seating was the most cramped I've ever experienced. I needed to get a boarding pass at the airport and low and behold all three of their machines were down. That was a 15 minute wait, compared to the normal airlines with 15 machines it was completely avoidable. I was surprised to learn carry on bags cost $40-45, putting me $20 below the cost of a untied flight."
Pros: "The crew was nice and did a great job."
Cons: "We were delayed on both flights by over an hour. The flight from Denver to Houston was delayed 2 and a half hours and I didn't feel we were adequately informed about when we would finally be taking off. Once we boarded the plane, we were delayed an extra half hour waiting on paperwork. All around it was a frustrating experience."
Pros: "Flight crew was nice"
Cons: "~3 hour delay caused us to miss connecting flight and almost miss 2nd option of connecting flight"
Pros: "cheapest fare I could find for last minute weekend trip to Las Vegas"
Cons: "seats dont recline. very uncomfortable. no entertainment. extra charge for carry on (you will charge me to carry my own bag?) I am not checking it in. flight was delayed (last flight out of houston)"
Pros: "Nothing!"
Cons: "My flight was cancelled."
Cons: "Didn't make the 45 minute cutoff for check-in on the flight the previous day because of hevy traffic and road work coming into Denver. I went with another airline that got me home instead of waiting until the next day"
Pros: "Price"
Cons: "Additional fee for many things and I had to pay multiple time for each fee"
Pros: "Crew were friendly"
Cons: "Airport gave wrong information, display showed gate A30 instead of the correct A11, mistake cannot just be attributed to airport but also to the airline for miscommunicating with the airport. Chairs were uncomfortable. But it was a cheap flight so understandable."
Pros: "Getting off the plane"
Cons: "- Seats are uncomfortable - My seat was dirty even after we waited for the plane to be cleaned - Seats can't recline - Tray table is a joke. Barely big enough to hold an iPhone - They charge you to pick a seat. If you want aisle or middle be prepared to pay. - They charge to bring bags on board - They charge for food - They charge for drinks, even soda or juice - They pretty much charge for everything - I will do everything I can to avoid this airline in the future"
Pros: "Boarding was fast"
Cons: "When the cost of the ticket is displayed it doesn't include the extra money you have to pay each way to get a seat, every single seat costs extra money, why not just include it in the price. Then even carry on bags cost an extra $30 each way, if you get the cheapest seats and carry on a bag, your flight ends up being $100 extra from what was displayed."
Pros: "Not much to like about being late, choppy air and a terrible flight crew"
Pros: "I like the on-time flight and professional pilot and crew."
Cons: "I didn't like that the airplanes did not have reclining seats in coach section. I also was surprised to get luggage charges in both directions."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Ripoff across the board"
Pros: "It was cheap. Overhead compartments were quite roomy."
Cons: "It was probably the most uncomfortable flight I have ever had the misfortune of experiencing. The seats were like wooden benches and didn't recline. The tray is only half the size of the standard. I'm pretty sure it's going to take a few sessions with a chiropractor to fix the abuse to my spine."
Cons: "We were at the Houston airport almost 3 hours before flight time, but no one was at the ticket counter. 45 minutes later the ticket agent arrived then told (not asked) us to move aside so they could check in passengers on an earlier flight. I completely understand the earlier flight thing, but common courtesy goes a long way! The gate agent was quite curt in his attempts to board people by boarding groups. The flight crew was tired, bored and just doing a job. Frontier will not be at the top of the list for future flights."
Pros: "The seating is extremely restrictive. The seats no longer recline. Seating arrangement is a charge item. Carry on bags are a charge item. In flight beverages and food items are charge items. The air in the planes is low quality."
Cons: "The stewards(ess) are bitchy because they are trying to manage very unhappy passengers. They constantly spout warnings to shut up, sit down and do exactly as they say or you will be taken off the airplane in irons by an air marshal. There is no comfort or piece of mind on a Frontier plane."
Cons: "The price of beverages/food."
Pros: "The crew on the way back from Denver were funny and kind and extremely helpful. The flight itself was fine."
Cons: "The prices for the trip. I wish I were explained that I would have so many different prices added on to the trip price. Carry-On price, seat price, Checked bag price (why are they different prices?). Only complimentary drink is water. The trip is more ideal for a weekend trip where all you need is a backpack that can fit under the seat. Then the pricing wouldn't be so bad."
Pros: "Tickets where excellent price since We did not check bags or carry ons. Airline was on time both ways and service was good."
Cons: "You have to pay for beverages but you can fix that buying those before boarding."
Cons: "The flight attendant complaining about it being a 9 hour day . Slouching Over seats seemed to be dreading the day."
Pros: "Crew was good and seats were okay"
Cons: "Seats are very tight No space Will be my last trip on spirit"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 3 times. Went from 7:55pm on 10/12 to 9am in 10/13 and the airline did not want to accommodate any Houston residence."
Pros: "The Starbucks staff and not the one in terminal A. That's about it."
Cons: "It was the worst I've ever experienced to be honest. I don't need to go into detail because that's how bad it was."
Cons: "The bench style seats"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They have a lousy service, they are delayed for everything."
Pros: "Wide aisle"
Cons: "Pilot forgot paper work and added 1 hour to our flight"
Pros: "I like that we eventually arrived at our destination."
Cons: "Gate 17 at IAH smells of what I assume can only be urine. The carpet is sticky and filthy. The gate organization is chaotic and frustrating. Low cost should not equate to what is being offered at Spirit. No pride seen by employees. Book with someone else."
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: "Got there early to destination"
Cons: "Sitting in the plane for to long"
Pros: "Price Get what you pay"
Cons: "Late flight Indifferent flight attendants"
Pros: "Price"
Cons: "Seats don"t recline at all"
Cons: "I missed this flight because of the previous delay."
Pros: "We arrived 35-40 minutes prior to the flight and they said we missed the flight! Then they can only give you the next available flight which is usually one or two days after and also charge you 100$ per person to reschedule the departure and can't change the return date and time! We lost 490$ just like that! The worst airline and I hate dinora thecustomerserviverepwhodidnthelp"
Cons: "We arrived 35-40 minutes prior to the flight and they said we missed the flight!

We lost 490$ just like that! The worst airline and I hate dinora thecustomerserviverepwhodidnthelp"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I arrived at the terminal three hours early, connecting from a non-Spirit flight from Central America. Spirit employees wouldn't check me in, saying they were too busy and I need to wait, but no worry, there's plenty of time. Asked again later and was told to check in online. Checked in online and was told (after the many upsell screens) that I couldn't print a boarding pass and needed to go to a Spirit counter. Went back to the Spirit gate and they said I hadn't checked in so they gave away my seat, and they didn't have another flight until tomorrow. Did I want it? Nope. Bought tickets on a real airline. Will never, ever travel with Spirit again."
Cons: "Great flight - arrived early, super nice airplane, friendly attendants"
Pros: "The flight path selected allowed us to arrive 10 minutes early."
Cons: "I would like to see more food offerings. I would also like to see the crew have more willingness to encourage parents to control the noise of their children."
Pros: "Once on the flight, it was fune"
Cons: "Delayed by two hours"
Pros: "- It was on time - Flight crew were quite friendly"
Pros: "The flight generally was smooth.Good take off and smooth landing"
Pros: "The whole experience was absolutely wonderful. I will fly spirit as often as I can for the destinations I fly to. Great service, and very importantly to me, very good to active duty military and veterans. Big thumbs up!"
Pros: "Well they chance again for April 14 hope no cancel anymore"
Cons: "They was Cancel I hope April 14 don't happened again"
Pros: "i stayed on this plane as my flight was a connection that continued to san diego. luckily i asked flight attendant to keep me in mind for an emergency exit seat to allow me more leg room. before we pushed back from the gate she waived me over and i got an seat on the exit row over the wing."
Cons: "most all seats are for short people"
Pros: "The price."
Cons: "You have to pay for EVERYTHING and the seats are cramped. BUT I balance that out with the price."
Pros: "Our snacks were good. The flight attendants were nice to my kids."
Cons: "Despite being told on the intercom, there was a no stop bathroom line. My seats were in the very last row so I had to endure the 2 hour, 15minute flight with strangers hovering over my kids waiting to use the bathroom. We literally had a constant stream of people hanging over us the entire flight. I hated it! No one told them to sit in their seats except periodically on the overhead, which no one listened and no one actually enforced it. It was NOT a comfortable flight."
Pros: "Checked 30 minutes before flight due to no assistance from staff with kiosk. Was not not allowed on scheduled flight. I had to rebook, costing me $99. Instead of fight that would have brought me home at 3pm, i made it to my destination at 11pm which cost me additional parking fees."
Pros: "It was a comfortable and fast flight."
Cons: "Customer service at Spirit (the 800 number) is out of control incompetent. So much so, I will avoid flying with them because I know if there is a problem, I am alone."
Pros: "Crew was pleasant."
Cons: "The most uncomfortable flight ever. Seats don't recline, very little leg room; not a great situation when the entire flight had nothing but turbulence. Bad taste when you now have to pay for every and any bag. No entertainment, nothing complimentary...Unfortunate."
Cons: "No water served"
Pros: "It's a plane. It was a short flight- all was fine. It was cheap, and I didn't need any baggage, so Spirit is the best airline for that. You can't beat the price. Booked the night before- about 16 hours before the flight."
Pros: "On time, plane seemed newer"
Cons: "Long line to check bags in and then had to pay"
Cons: "Flight was delayed four hours"
Pros: "Fare of ticket. Flight arrived on time."
Cons: "No water, almost died of dehydration. I don't understand why it is so hard to provide your passengers with something as simple as water. The seats were really close to each other and had hardly any leg room. The seats did not recline back. There was no entertainment or power outlets. The boarding was done late as well."
Pros: "Nothing because I never made it."
Cons: "Everything."
Pros: "The crew is very helpful"
Pros: "Returning was not delayed."
Cons: "They charge carry on bag for $52. It's too much and I noticed at airport."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Delays Seating Space Baggage price Airline No accommodations Canceled flights Bad customer service This airline has messed a lot of people over today. It's unacceptable and you have lost customers"
Cons: "Baggage fees are a robbery. It costed me more to put two bags in the plane than the flight ticket. The overall cost fot the flight was higher than with any other airline. I wood never fly with spirit again."
Pros: "Nothing, they charge for carry on $55, each way, total rip off . I will never flight this airline again, they don't even offer water without asking for your credit card"
Cons: "Lost my luggage, delayed flights due to maintance issues. Horrible seats horrible customer service rude people."
Pros: "The plane was clean, boarding was easy, and it was a cheap flight."
Cons: "You have to pay for everything. All bags even carry on bags have to be paid for, seats don't recline, no complimentary drink or snack."
Pros: "The crew members were upbeat, polite, and helpful."
Cons: "The seats are too damn small. The person in back of me was kneeing me in the back. I couldn't even lower the tray table all the way down without hitting my knees. I know that more people per flight means lower fares, but you guys have pushed it too far. This was maybe the most uncomfortable flight of my life. Beyond the shitty seats, I couldn't check in to my flight using the website. It kept rejecting my password. I tried to reset my password and I kept getting error messages. So annoying."
Pros: "It got me there. The trip was arranged late, so it was good just to get a ticket. I've been on worse--but that was IndiGO in India."
Cons: "Check-in at kiosk not intuitive (nice person helped). What's "buy" a bag? I bought a bag from Samsonite; Spirit is just charging a fee to carry it. All hard surfaces inside the aircraft, so sound wasn't dampened--so noisy it was unpleasant; squalling baby noise seemed to reverberate through the cabin. Flight scheduled at lunchtime, but the closest thing to decent food on board was a bag of nuts. Didn't know it was possible to call something so little a "tray table", or a bungee cord a "seat pocket". It was an Airbus, so made weird sounds--luggage bins vibrated so badly during descent that people put their hands up to try to stop the shaking."
Pros: "All of the Spirit Airlines staff were smiling and friendly. In a busy environment this is not always the case."
Cons: "Services and staff are HORRIBLE."
Cons: "Rude customer service, too many errors and mistakes, 2 hour delays, never again"
Cons: "I have booked flights twice on Spirit and both times they sent an email around midnight before a 7 am flight to cancel the flight. They offered no alternative flight for the same day. They don't cooperate with other airlines to ensure their customers get to their destination. They are the WORST!! Won't ever book with them again."
Pros: "The price is right if you are going somewhere with no luggage. When they canceled the flight they refunded my baggage fee and gave me a $7 meal ticket."
Cons: "Where do I start? First off, they charge you for a carry-on (there goes the cheap price). I paid more to carry a tiny bag than I did for the actual ticket. Next, they switched the gate last minute and confused everyone. Then it was delayed an hour (one thing after another). They offer no complimentary beverages and the seats don't recline, either. It's not very comfortable. On the returning flight , they canceled the flight last minute. I am done!!"
