Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Assigned seating and if my flight would actually leave on time"
Pros: "Crew was great, plane was clean"
Cons: "The connecting flight was delayed multiple times and then gate switched and plane switched. We waited in airport for 8 hrs instead of 4. The trip should have ended at 10pm but we end up getting home tired and spent at 2am for a wasted Friday. This flught is the shortest and yet always seems to have pushbacks and delays. Next time im driving to SA and never flying between SA and another Texan city. Flights didnt offer any drinks or snacks, or apologies or vouchers after the huge inconvenience."
Pros: "The lead flight attendant had a good sense of humor and the pilot asked the flight attendants to move to the side so he could see out the back...not hilarious, but funny and appreciated."
Cons: "Nothing, all was good."
Cons: "I was supposed to go to a wedding in Chicago, and leave on thursday. They cancelled my thursday flight and did not get me to Chicago until Saturday, so I missed the wedding. They strung the whole thing out by scheduling me on new flights, only to cancel those later. Total mess!"
Cons: "No WiFi so no free tv"
Pros: "Smooth boarding process. I like that Southwest allowed me to change flight at not extra charge"
Cons: "It was a little delayed but no biggies"
Cons: "Airplane dirty"
Pros: "Great crew, comfortable flight"
Cons: "snacks are wimpy"
Cons: "We sat at the gate fully boarded with doors closed for 20 minutes. No idea why."
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Gluten free snacks like peanuts"
Pros: "Crew did a great job. Drinks served, full plane."
Cons: "Crew had no personality. Contrived politeness."
Pros: "Amazing and fun crew"
Cons: "Pilot was late. Poor crew scheduling. Unnecessary delay."
Pros: "Great crew!"
Cons: "Window shades were cheap plastic and jammed up or down, felt like the plane details were not cared about"
Cons: "Gate was not available when we landed, so we waited 35 minutes on the tarmac before we could deplane."
Pros: "Good leg room. Not full flight."
Pros: "Not the friendliest airline but great value for the money!"
Cons: "Guy was crazy, asking for so much stuff, smelled, frantic, lost his keys, tooks up 2 seats, ate his fast food and messed all over, kept farting, kept staring at me, creep vibes"
Pros: "The crew was very nice."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 1 hour."
Pros: "Late due to weather. Southwest is offering free TV to your phone or computer now. It’s still pretty crowded on there but probably less so than a commuter jet. Limited tp pretzels for a snack."
Pros: "Being able to change tickets and onlly pay the difference"
Cons: "plane normally pretty full and extra tight when heavier person next to me"
Pros: "Flight attendants made me laugh, specially the one with the mike made the boarding time very pleasant. Another was very helpful and patient with my wife who wanted to connect to southwest online in the middle of the trip."
Pros: "The kind staff who quickly helped me rebook my flight after I missed my original departure."
Cons: "The unforeseen mechanical problems that delayed the flight."
Pros: "Arrived on time, overall a smooth flight"
Cons: "I don’t like the boarding process."
Pros: "On time and staff was great!"
Pros: "Flight attendants are always nice."
Cons: "I was in a group of 4 with boarding positions A2 through A5. We couldn't all get exit row, which is important to my husband who is over 6' tall, in spite of this which I find totally obnoxious. This was due to a woman who boarded outside of her group (she was C!), who boarded with her friend who had A1, and saved a seat for her daughter. The Southwest system is completely unfair unless two things happen: 1) people are not allowed to board outside their group and 2) IMPORTANTLY NO RESERVING seats. We have noticed that the trend seems to be pay for one person in a party to have early bird, and then reserve a seat. This is shitty."
Pros: "The flight and crew were very good. Arrived ahead of scheduled time"
Cons: "There was a delay in departure"
Pros: "On time artival"
Pros: "Our flight was on time."
Cons: "N/a"
Cons: "I didn't have a note from my daughter's mother saying I could travel alone with her. I was delayed 24 hours. I really wish this was something SW would address in the booking process when they can see that 1 adult is traveling with a minor. The agents in Houston took zero responsibility, demeaned me in front of my daughter for not know that rule, and never apologized."
Pros: "The Crew went above and beyond as usual."
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "A/c was not working. Pretty dang hot."
Pros: "Friendly staff. Variety of snack selection."
Pros: "Lots of empty seats on the flight so more comfortable than most. Friendly communicative crew. Was very relieved to be on this flight out of Houston just before the hurricane hit-- thank you for not canceling it!"
Cons: "Everybody hates peanuts. Please consider providing outlets at the seats so we can charge our devices, and little tvs on the backs of the seats. As-is, $8 for internet on a short flight is dumb and my phone can't last very long playing media anyways."
Pros: "Nothing. Canceled"
Cons: "Surprised yow didnt know that flight was canceled"
Cons: "2 hours late."
Pros: "Flight needed to wait on a few people. Got off OK and landed well. Luggage was taken off at Houston."
Cons: "Luggage was removed in Houston (our layover). So we didn't have the bags in Indy. Was provided a kit to help. And bags came in around 1:30a to our hotel. Thankful! So great of SW to get them to us so quickly. We had a wedding to attend and will be able to wear our wedding clothes!"
Pros: "Boarding and quick baggage delivery."
Cons: "Baggage claim was very professional but we were lucky to get there ahead of a group from a flight where it looked like a bunch of bags were late. Process is slow (probably unavoidable) but only two people to handle the crowd."
Pros: "The crew was very nice."
Cons: "I don't like the free for all seat situation. It would be nice if we could pick our seats depending on when we book our flight, etc. The seats are rather tight. If you have wider hips, it will be hard for you to sit in the center seat or on the aisle when the plane is packed. I also wish they sold food on the plane. My total travel time with two flights is almost 6 hours. I always start to crave the protein boxes or healthy food options American Airlines sells on their flights. SW should sell food. They would profit."
Pros: "SWA is awesome! Courteous flight crew. Pop quiz to the people in the exit row before departure, made them think (what do you do if you look out your window and see fire?). Got their attention and reminded them of the seriousness of them accepting the responsibility of sitting there."
Cons: "Construction at the Boston airport caused a delay on the return flight, not able to handle all the flights with one of the runways torn up. Southwest shifted the departure and still made it a good flight with an almost on time arrival in Houston."
Pros: "The flight crew was great, cheeky but they drew in some laughs Tom make the flight very easy. Love that Hou to Den is only a short 2.5 hours, flight was easy and the plane was very clean. Quite surprised at how well maintained the plane was. Great job Southwest, you really do tackle the competitor and not your guests."
Cons: "This was nothing against the company but, more on their passengers. People when your seated in the very back don't cut off the entire front and middle of the plane just so you can get off first!"

TsA was fast and efficient. Boarding was effortless, fast. Having a new and clean plane only amplified the experience

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: "Kosher snacks! Thank you! Very safe and controlled Covid procedures. Made me feel safe."
Pros: "Very controlled and safe Covid procedures. Outlets and screens at every seat."
Pros: "Felt very clean and so glad they are not selling every seat"
Pros: "great everything!"
Cons: "Not delayed"
Pros: "It was all good glad the last leg of the trip was pleasant."
Cons: "Small plane, feels cramped"
Cons: "The unfortunate delay prevented me from attending my grandmother’s wake. Fewer delays would be helpful."
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "The boarding process was rough and haphazard"
Cons: "No sandwiches for sale just snack boxes"
Pros: "Taco"
Cons: "Taco"
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."
Cons: "Smooth on time flight"
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: "Nothing."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours. Even though I had carry on, they checked it and this made me waste my time at baggage claim rather than gate checking. Flight attendants were miserable. Power supply didn’t work at seats."
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: "Amazing crew and clean cabin."
Pros: "Fast boarding, friendly crew, and comfy seats"
Cons: "It was pretty bumpy and a few times we changed altitude very quickly"
Pros: "I loved the flight attendants and the desk staff everyone was so friendly and made me want to travel delta again."
Cons: "Delta doesn’t offer military spouses free checked bags and I found this out at the airport. It was disheartening, but at least it’s Delta and not the airline that is supposed to represent America."
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: "On time"
Cons: "Small aircraft"
Pros: "Staff, service, options"
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: "Crew friendly"
Cons: "Middle seat with no option for me to move"
Pros: "The flight was good, Boarding was smooth and fast"
Cons: "I asked one of the crew members to help me to get a better seat as I was very tired and wanted to sleep better during the flight and he didnt pay attention to me. I realized there were emthy seats available during the flight"
Pros: "Flight attendants were pleasant."
Pros: "Friendly service, comfortable seat, on time, no issues."
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "The flight was 4 hours delayed"
Pros: "Service"
Pros: "i liked that staff and crew were very communicative and pleasant."
Cons: "one crew member didn't show up and caused delayed flight."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Boarded quickly with no fuss."
Pros: "Flt on time, very nice and friendly gate agent and flight attendant"
Cons: "Too tight and seats not comfortable."
Cons: "Delayed"
Cons: "The delta studio didn't work with Android 8"
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: "Fast and very friendly staff."
Pros: "Ease of flight"
Cons: "N/A"
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: "Entertainment options weren't bad. Most of the crew was polite other than one flight attendant who seemed ambivalent and unhappy to be there."
Cons: "Three hour+ flight and just one tiny bag of pretzels? And no lemon or lime wedges on the beverage cart? Plus, I have to pay extra for one checked bag. I will only fly Delta if I have to in the future. Subpar airline."
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: "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: "The flight attendant looked like she was mad throughout the whole flight"
Pros: "Everything went well"
Cons: "I was late from first flight"
Pros: "Fantastic crew"
Cons: "Great trip"
Pros: "Easy no hassle check in and board."
Cons: "Absolutely nothing. Thank you!"
Pros: "Seats seem to get smaller but overall a good experience"
Cons: "Seat room"
Cons: "The crew was outstanding and the aircraft was new and comfy"
Cons: "The airport experience was horrible. American Airlines did not have enough personnel on duty to process all the waiting passengers."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "American airlines needs to improve their inter hub options"
Pros: "Was not long enough"
Cons: "Boarding at Heathrow is horribly inefficient."
Pros: "Service/entertainment on the plane was great."
Cons: "We were unable to check in the night before due to website issues and made it so we didn't have seats assigned until everyone else was boarded onto the plane and because of that I couldn't sit next to my girlfriend."
Pros: "Customer service"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "On-time departure and arrival, friendly ground staff and flight attendant"
Cons: "There was no entertainment at all, and pretzels are gross"
Pros: "Nice plane and entertainment"
Cons: "Booked flight through British air for a reason. Didn’t anticipate American Airlines being used for our flights. The Flight was also delayed but it was never explained why despite dozens of questions from passengers. This caused a missed connection flight and forced us to stay overnight in Chicago with nothing but a $12 food voucher. When we tried t ask what other options were, American Airlines personal offered no sympathy and said the best we would get is the food vouchers and we should be grateful. No other travel reimbursement or vouchers were offered other than a replacement flight. Overall it was a huge inconvenience and caused numerous other expenditures for us."
Pros: "Great flight"
Cons: "everyone was friendly"
Cons: "Small seats."
Cons: "Fast flight"
Pros: "Boarding was on time, and landing was smooth."
Cons: "No entertainment."
Pros: "One cabin crew went the extra mile for me...rescued a partial dental plate which I had inadvertently tossed in the trash."
Pros: "This trip was short and sweet.. Uneventful +Praise God!"
Pros: "Everything was good."
Cons: "Movies selection"
Pros: "On time, good service."
Cons: "Delayed flight, multiple gate changes"
Pros: "Finish currently use were the most courteous and caring I ever was serviced by."
Cons: "Not much to recall"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "When I purchased my tickets, American decided it would be reasonable to separate my husband, our 1 year old daughter, and myself which I was notified of only when I asked the customer service agent over the phone prior to our flight. She explained that she was unable to do anything about it. I then called American during my trip and spoke with another agent who said it was out of her hands as well and to take it up with an agent at the desk at the airport. When I checked in online, I was able to change our seats myself which was nothing that either agent even suggested. The lack of ability of these agents on the phone to help two parents traveling internationally with a toddler was unbelievable. American has terrible customer service."
Pros: "Everyone was so friendly and helpful, especially Ricardo at the check in desk. Our flight was delayed for 2 hours but the friendly staff made it easier to deal with the delay!"
Pros: "I would like if for my return from Paris to Chicago, Chicago Seattle I would be greeted by the personal and offered to flight first class without extra charge to compensate for the bad experience on my way going in. Thank you"
Cons: "I was told I would be able to choose the seats only 24 hours before the flight by going online. I tried to choose the seats online but could not have access to the site. I then called the number provided to ask for more help, and was told that I could then only choose the seats at the check in time. I was at the airport 2 hours before the flight schedule to book my seat and was told them that I could only choose the seats at the gate. Once I got at the gate I asked the person to please give me a seat at the aisle for medical reasons but after waiting until the boarding process had started I was giving a middle seat. Not only I was treated as a stand by passenger that had not purchased the tickets I was put nt on group 8 and at the moment of boarding the gate personal aggressively grabbed my carry-on bag because they insisted there was no more spaces in the compartment above heads. Once I got inside of airplane I saw many empty compartments available for carry-on luggage. I wish I had not purchased my ticket with Iberia Airlines operated by American Airlines. It was not a good, pleasant experience and do not recommend. I wil certainly avoid in the future and not travel this way another time. Thanks"
Pros: "Price"
Cons: "Arrived 1 hr before my flight and they wouldn't check me in. I believe they overbook the flight and turn customer down. They even gave me hard time during rebooking us. Never again."
Pros: "The flight was equal to AA service I have had on a regular basis."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Full flight, crew worked timely"
Pros: "All good, except poor prep on food"
Cons: "As above"
Pros: "Crew was great. Boarding was quick. Food was good."
Cons: "The entertainment on a cross Atlantic flight was not family friendly. Playing 'Dark Knight Rises' and 'Guardians of the Galaxy' while my 6 year old is on the flight is not appropriate. While I didn't let him listen to the program, he could still watch violent scenes I would not allow at home. There are plenty of family friendly good quality PG or G rated movies that appeal to everyone. Would it be too hard to get individual screens in 2017?"
Pros: "Our flight was delayed by almost three hours due to weather in Chicago, the crew was very helpful and the pilot kept us informed about the updates that he was receiving."
Pros: "Quick and easy boarding"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "Courteous crew"
Cons: "The plane was tiny and old"
Pros: "Clean plane . excellent staff"
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "Flight on time."
Pros: "Arrived early. Smooth flight."
Pros: "They were absolutely fantastic on checking on me, food, service, flight in general. Would recommend to anyone!!!"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "All well"
Pros: "What I enjoyed about this flight is that I eventually made it to Chicago."
Cons: "Flight was delayed several times - blamed on Chicago ATC. The food offered was not suitable for First Class - there was chicken and vegetarian option. The FA was rather slow in serving and clearing trays. She was not interested in going around and asking for refills - when I inquired about it at dessert time, she didn't come back for 15 minutes and I had to ring the call button - she informed me they didn't have my drink of choice, so it was OK for her not to come back and tell me that. Service was terrible in First Class. American should seriously do something about that."
Pros: "The flight from San Diego to Chicago went well. We left on time and arrived a little earlier than expected. I was worried about the weather delaying our flight once we go to Chicago but we encounter different problems. as I will explain next."
Pros: "our original flight was cancel due to snow, and we were placed at a hotel and food vouchers were given as well"
Cons: "no head set were passed out making video entertainment useless"
Cons: "We fly from London to Dallas and Dallas to Albuquerque but we miss our connecting flight because of the delay leaving London and because of weather. So we got mid sets from Dallas to Albuquerque."
Cons: "Would at least like a choice of a snack instead of cookies I don't care for."
Pros: "Worst customer service I have ever experience"
Cons: "They canceled my flight to Florida due to hurricane then refused to refund my return flight ticket. How can I fly back if I never made it there. Bunch of thiefs kept my money and they never got me to my destination."
Cons: "The fact that people carry-on luggage that exceeds the max requirements for carry on luggage so they can avoid the checked luggage fee. It's a disgrace. It time to live by your rules, the same for everyone. I had to be rebooked out a different airport as PGV was flooded. I was seated in 21F which does not recline. AA cancelled my flight out of PGV, a better seat would have been nice since I had to drive an hour to EWN whereas I was staying only 10 mins from PGV."
Cons: "We could not check in online because we refused to pay for seats that I felt that already purchased or was entitled to one so I bought a ticket. When we got to the airport and checked in they did not put me and my traveling partner together meaning they didn't see them together not to mention. Our flight was delayed and we only have 4 minutes to get from gate a to gate. We got to the gate collected our boarding passes found out we were seated at the very very very back of the plane right next to the restrooms.........NICE"
Pros: "Good flight."
Cons: "A little crowded"
Pros: "After traveling on a budget airline to Las Vegas and having a horrific experience, I couldn't have been more pleased with the comfort and cleanliness of the aircraft as well as the friendliness of the flight crew!"
Cons: "The plane was pretty chilly and I was FREEZING, but when I asked for a blanket they told me they only hand them out to the first-class passengers. In addition, they did forget to download our in-flight movie, but we all make mistakes :)"
Pros: "I got to where I wanted to go"
Cons: "I reached out to your customer support already about this, but haven't heard back. The departure time (for both legs of my trip) that was confirmed with my purchase from Kayak was incorrect and caused a major inconvenience. I'd very much like to receive a response. My email addres"
Cons: "The plane was delayed due to “maintenance” but no explanation was given as to why."
Pros: "Crew was professional and friendly"
Pros: "Crew was very nice"
Cons: "Better off paying more upfront with any other airline. As tickets will end up being same by the time you finish paying for luggage and your seat. Not worth the hassle and discomfort"
Pros: "when at O'Hare, it was not a very long taxi to get to the gate"
Cons: "flight was delayed an hour; I felt very cramped in that small space for my seat"
Pros: "Plenty of leg room and very helpful staff"
Cons: "Sat on the tarmac for two and a half hours due to mechanical issues. Happy to know everything eventually was in working order, but didn't enjoy having my legs fall asleep while waiting"
Pros: "Friendly flight attendants"
Cons: "Delay in departing, but seemed to make up time in the air and landed on time."
Pros: "The crew was nice and they were apologetic. I know it wasn't their fault. They gave status updates every 15 minutes but in the end they were generally 'wrong'. Some people were angry about this but it wasn't their fault. How could it be? They were just repeating what they were told. It's not their fault that their organizers told them incorrect stuff. I sympathized with them more than I usually would because some passengers were such jerks to them. I appreciate that they were keeping us in the loop. We basically knew as much as they knew. It made me feel like we were all in this bad situation together, which we were. They wanted to get home, too. That was the right way to handle this. The actual flight was uneventful. Plane was clean. Seats were about as comfortable as you would expect for the price."
Cons: "Where to begin. It was delayed 1.5 hours, then we boarded, waited maybe 30 minutes, then we UNBOARDED because they needed a new plane, then it was delayed AGAIN. When we finally landed in Chicago we were about 5 hours behind schedule. I feel bad for the crew because they were left dealing with angry passengers, I know it wasn't their fault. Just poor corporate planning. In addition I did have a truly mind boggling experience with an employee. We were lined up for our first boarding, in a huge line, having waited for 1.5 hours, and suddenly a woman with multiple bags cut in line. I said "Excuse me ma'am but there IS a line" and she smiled and said "Oh, sorry, I'm an employee". I apologized and she cut everyone and boarded. That's when I realized that she was NOT WORKING THE FLIGHT. She was just using her privilege to cut in line. She cut in front and saved maybe 5 minutes. I mean, why bother. Why bother pissing off paying customers to save 5 minutes. People around me were so angry. Then she got on the flight and held everything up because she needed to load her 4 pieces of luggage into the overhead bin, taking up an entire bin. Flight crew actually moved people's bags to accommodate her. And one of her bags was a full sized suitcase that would never have been allowed if she wasn't an employee. Simply ridiculous, the only thing saving her was that there were open seats. She was not taking a seat from a paying customer. I would say that I wouldn't fly Frontier again but honestly all of the companies suck so I don't know who to pick. Every airline has some story or another of crappy customer service. I wish the barrier for entry wasn't so high so that competitors could swoop in....as much as I dislike the Elon Musk's of the world it would be great if some billionaire swooped in with their money and made an airline that actually worked."
Pros: "on time and efficient"
Cons: "gave me seat in row 30 when other seats were empty"
Pros: "Friendly crew Fairly clean air craft"
Cons: "Seats don't boot recline There is not even one complementary drink during duration of a flight"
Pros: "Lower cost, but sacrifice comfort and amenities, flight attendants fine"
Cons: "Sat in row 26, nothing except bare bones service"
Cons: "Seats don't recline, have to pay for soda etc"
Pros: "lots of room for items in the overhead bins"
Cons: "I paid for a carry-on bag, but didn't pay to select my seat. My seat ended up in the very back of the plane, somehow, so had to carry my personal bag, my carry on, and my big winter coat past all the rest of the passengers, which was awkward. Since carry-on bags are so pricey, perhaps purchasing one could guarantee that you're given an open seat closer to the front of the plane, or maybe just an earlier boarding zone, so as to disturb fewer folks."
Pros: "Cheap airfare. Stretch seating option."
Cons: "Where do I start? Going to Vegas (from Chicago), we sat on the tarmac for 90 minutes with no explanation. We finally took off after that, and no attempt was made to regain lost time. In fact, the flight took even longer after we were up than the original plan. The seats were very uncomfortable. I don't know if the seats on the return trip had more padding, but there seemed to be a noticeable difference between the two flights, not just by myself, but noticeable in the lack of squirming on the second flight by everyone else as well."
Cons: "The plane had by far the most uncomfortable seats I've ever been in. They might as well have had metal fold-up seats. I paid extra for a specific seat, and when another passenger took it, a flight attendant gave me a hard time when I asked them to move. I was unaware that I'd have to pay $40 just for a carry on until AFTER I booked the flight, in which case I would've just chosen a better airline."
Pros: "Larger seating was available."
Cons: "Additional charge for carry on luggage. No entertainment and no "free" food. The adds on (seat/luggage/food) put the cost of flying with Frontier to the same level as the airlines that don't charge for additional "things"! So why wld you fly "discount " if in the end you pay as much...possibly more than the competition!"
Pros: "The only think we liked about Frontier was the fact it was on time, to and from. Also that we actually arrived to the destination both ways."
Cons: "What we didnt like is a much more lengthy list, the flight was cramped, the seats were most uncomfortable, the trays were ever so small, you had to pay for luggage and carry ons, pay for water and soda, when asked why we had to pay every time we turn around the flight attendant replied, "Thats how we make our money" wow! Not to mention how dirty and filthy the plane was both ways, dont people even clean them . Really bad experience, NEVER WILL FLY FRONTIER AGAIN!!!"
Pros: "I have to say that the flight attendants were very nice and attentive! Much much better then the attendants from AA! We left on time and arrived early at out destination! Yes you guys charge for everything and the planes are old and not much seat leg room, but its expected based on the price! Over all a great flight for our money! We had the same experience on our round trip to FL!"
Cons: "The outrageous surcharges for seats and luggage and the incredibly uncomfortable plane ride"
Cons: "Got to airport an hour early. Got to check bag lady with 45 min before flight. They made me pay $15 more and carry my bag thru airport or I couldn't board the flight. Very bad experience"
Cons: "Surprised at how much we were nickel and dimed. Carry-ons cost $45 each. Checked bags cost $40 each. The crew seemed apathetic and exhausted. We were delayed an hour then sat on the runway for another hour before departing. No explanations were given either in the terminal or from the pilot. We will try very hard not to fly Frontier again if we can at all help it."
Cons: "Flight was canceled and they didn't have any more flight Ha for 6 days. So frustrating. Ended up paying $500 for a last minute flight on another airline."
Pros: "Over all there was nothing to complain, you get for what you pay for. the Plain was good and clean, the Staff where friendly and helpful."
Cons: "I do not like that I have to pay for my Carry on bag, charge me up front when I buy the ticket."
Pros: "Flight arrived on time"
Cons: "Boarding was disorganized, customer support seemed very unknowledgable at the check in counter, very disappointing overall"
Pros: "The woman at the check in counter was nice"
Cons: "All of it. Horrible seats that are so piled on top of each other that I felt like cattle; nickel and dining us every chance you had; poor communication via email and text that the flights are delayed; HORRIBLE customer service online and via phone (I'd rather talk to Comcast than Frontier); no wifi or entertainment on the flight, which for a 2.5 HR flights is rediculous. One of the worst flight experience ever."
Pros: "Flight was good and landing smooth."
Cons: "No beverages or snacks were offered. The flight was a late night flight and there was no where refreshments or beverages could be purchased, hence I was forced to fast for 6 hours."
Pros: "I highly recommend them, will use this airline again"
Cons: "Only thing that they wanted to charge extra for window seat and plane wasn't fully booked, otherwise the best service"
Cons: "if you have to change flight, flight delay etc, frontier does not offer the flight capacity of other airlines, and thus is unreliable as a menas of getting to mostly all destinations they fly to. San Francisco to Chicago, they offer one flight every two days, anything goes wrong you are stuck without a flight"
Pros: "The flight arrived 40 minutes early."
Cons: "I paid $40 for a carry on. The plane was not pressurized, I've never had my ears hurt to bad on a plane."
Pros: "Flight crews, from the pilot to the attendants, were very polite & seemed responsive passenger needs. Boarding was ok - could always be better."
Cons: "My flight on Friday was delayed by 4 hours and my flight on Sunday was delayed by 2.5 hours - making what was supposed to be a relaxing weekend bookended by terrible and exhausting wait times at the airport - expensive too because I ended up having to eat at the airport for both. Didn't arrive at my final destination on Friday till 2am. The seats on the plane, I found, to be super uncomfortable."
Pros: "Honestly the WORST experience ever with a flight. Angry Kayak doesn't post the cost of luggage and carry one with them. Flight delayed 5 hours for non existent weather, leading to 1 hour sitting on the tarmac because they didn't have a gate at the largest airport. Then, they destroyed brand new luggage."
Cons: "I hated the whole thing. Seats and tray tables are a joke"
Pros: "Airline attendants were kind."
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable - I could feel the metal underneath the leather. But most importantly, I wish there was more signage about the baggage fee for a carry-on. If I would have known that I couldn't take a carry-on without having to pay for it, I would have checked my bag. I was extremely frustrated having to pay even more than the original fee at the gate. Because of this, I am never flying Frontier again."
Cons: "That I had to sit on the outside of the airport for two hours with no where else to go because ticket crews didnt arrive until two hours before the flight. pretty bullshit."
Pros: "Almost nothing about this flight was positive. I have to struggle to find something, but I can say that boarding wasn't too bad. Quick and organized."
Cons: "Everything else. To start, Frontier does not include any carry-ons with the flight, so either we pay $70.00 round trip for a bag or we have to shove everything we want for our trip into a "personal bag". We checked in about 24 hours before the flight and realized only after we had already waited in line for security that we needed printed paper boarding passes rather than using our phones (like every other airline). Luckily, we didn't wait until the last minute to show up, so we could go back, re-check in, wait in line for security a second time, and make it to our gate. Once boarded, things turned even worse when we realized that the seats on this Airbus were nothing more than very thin plastic with a very small amount of cushion, making the metal folding chairs from my youth seem preferable. In addition, while planes are not necessarily known for being comfortable, even the small conveniences of other planes were missing. These seats had no entertainment devices, terribly positioned armrests, a tray table that would barely hold my iPhone, no option to recline at all, and so little room ahead of us that my knees were pushed against the seat ahead of me. I was offered some respite when the flight attendant said that the flight was completely boarded but there were some exit row seats available. We were told that the attendants would "be happy to move you to a seat with a little more leg room and would be happy to swipe your card for the $50.00 charge". Really? $50.00 for an upgrade to an exit row? Generally, any flight I have been on will give a free upgrade or two if these seats are vacant. Nobody is there anyway, so why not offer them to give a sense of friendliness to your customers? You are not making any money on those seats anyway. On a roughly four hour flight, there were drinks and snacks offered, but their special was 2 cans of soda and a snack (peanuts or trail mix) for 9.00. Water, soda, and all snacks were an extra charge... Bottom line, this was a terrible experience with a terrible airline. If I have anything to say about it, I will never fly with Frontier again."
Cons: "Seats are rock hard and finding gate for frontier airlines takes for ever"
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Ended up paying $16 for choosing a seat and 40$ for a cabin luggage. That's lame. Not to mention the 90 degree immovable seats."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Delay, luggage prices. No better than spirit. Never flying Frontier ever again!"
Pros: "Airfare was good, flight was on time"
Cons: "Bag fee too high, online system confusing, craft not clean, tray tables too small"
Pros: "Very nice flight....flight attendants were very friendly and accommodating. NICE to leave on time and land early!! Lots of leg room. For a last minute ticket purchase I was certainly excited to find such a great deal. Definitely will fly Frontier again."
Cons: "Flight 33 minutes late leaving. Did not realize Frontier now charges for everything. My mistake but realized I could have flown on American for same price after all extras added to ticket by Frontiet. Not likely to ever fly on Frontier again."
Pros: "The low price of the fare"
Cons: "1. All the added charges even for a refreshment 2. The obnoxiously loud noises coming from the plane mechanics 3. A group of 5 that were drunk, belligerent, loud, and inappropriate 4. Lack of cleanliness (old tissues & trash stuffed in the seat pocket, trash on the floor, looked like throw up in our aisle-our entire aisle asked to move seats) 5. Stewardess speakerphone so loud It was painful"
Cons: "The lines to check a bag were outrageous and security check was the same."
Pros: "Frontier is the new breed of airlines that will soon be charging you for the air you breath on the plane! There is nothing I can recommend about this airline. Every step of the process involves additional charges including charges for seats, early-check-in and carry on luggage…. carry on luggage is an additional $40.00!!! Many of the other passengers felt misled and this resulted in a number of frustrated, angry and disappointed people at check-in."
Cons: "All of the concealed extra charges; seats were too small for an average adult."
Pros: "The price. Ok for short flights only."
Cons: "It is an Airbus, but a bus is more comfortable. The seats are hard and cramped. The base price may be great, but be aware they charge for extra for everything including carry-on if it does not fit under the seat."
Pros: "The flights were exactly on time, and the crews were very friendly. The boarding process was appreciated because people with carry on bags are allowed to board first, which helps with overhead compartment space."
Cons: "The hidden seat assignment and carry on baggage fees were unexpectedly high (at least $11 to get a seat and $30 for a carry on bag, both one way, and apparently both fees would have been higher if I had paid at the airport). I ended up paying $88 on top of the price of the ticket, which would have been nice to know for budgeting purposes."
Pros: "The crew is friendly and the flight was on time"
Cons: "You think frontier is saving you money? Think again, therms have hidden charges, upon check in you have to pay extra to be assigned any seat + your carry on to be placed on the top compartments it's also an extra fee"
Pros: "The staff was very helpful, I needed assistance and they were there to take care of my needs."
Cons: "How the airlines charges for everything except water."
Pros: "Not much..liked on this airline."
Cons: "Pay extra for seat Resv, coffee/soda, carry on bag, check bag(cheaper than carry on), and the seats are like sitting on boards. Never again, I'll pay the extra for United or even Soutwest."
Cons: "I arrived later than anticipated, flight was delayed and was late for a work meeting"
Cons: "the baggage fees were extremely high. i would have paid a higher fare upfront knowing i didn't have to pay for my carry-on. i ended up paying an additional $90 for my carry-on! i also didn't like the fact that i had to pay more money to check-in online; i already paid for my fare, why do i have to pay some more? the seats were very uncomfortable, there was no wifi or entertainment on board during flight and you couldn't even get a free cup of water. EVERYTHING had a cost. the crew wasn't friendly, i wasn't greeted at either flight. i will neve fly frontier and i will sharing my experience with all of my family and friends."
Pros: "Crew were helpful"
Cons: "People are not cattle. Airline profits make flying comfortably a thing of the past. This flight was no different."
Cons: "This was a great value and we enjoyed the flight"
Pros: "The flight attendants were really nice, funny, and attentive. They were great."
Cons: "I think it is insane that the overweight charge is double. The baggage fees are insanely expensive and the seats are so close together on the plane you feel like you are sitting in each others lap. Considering how many passengers they have on the plane and how much money they make show how horrible the baggage fees are because clearly they are making profit. Also, you can't even get water without paying for it. Everything here costs, this is why I will continue to fly with Southwest and I will never fly with this airline again."
Pros: "Flight departed on schedule and arrived before scheduled. Attendants were courteous and helpful."
Cons: "Very cramped seating. Was OK for short flight, but would be very uncomfortable for longer flights. $3.00 for a drink of water!"
Cons: "I had to leave in an emergency and they refused to give me my money back I left on Saturday instead of Monday and they refuse to return my money or give me credit for my flight"
Pros: "Price Crew"
Cons: "Seats dont recline Not even a bottle of water provided"
Pros: "First time I have flown with Spirit - had to get used to new rules. Everything went smoothly- still a few things that aren't clear."
Cons: "If we are given a cost gradient for seating, why not do it for drinks and food. Sell a few outstanding spirits, food, beverages etc- customers will either want to pay extra or not."
Pros: "The professionalism of the crew and staff."
Cons: "The overselling of seats; however, the compensation offered if I was unable to obtain a seat was good."
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Late 4.5hrs, several false "we're boarding now". No communication of what the issue was. No in-flight service, even a soda wasn't free. Never again."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Hidden fees, water cost money, you save nothing with the cheap fair"
Cons: "I thought I had checked in to the flight earlier in the day. When I arrived at the check in counter to see if another flight was available, the only other option would have gotten me there after 2 stopovers. I was headed to a wedding and had to make the rehearsal dinner. The woman at the Kayak counter suggested that I try to get a new flight with a different airline. I did, and transferred airports. The next day, I received a note that my entire itinerary was cancelled because i had missed one leg of my trip. After spending 30 minutes on the phone with the help desk (who were very nice, but wouldn't budge) i was unable to get anywhere. Then, I had to buy another one way flight home to make it to work the next day. I will never fly Spirit again."
Pros: "We made it safely."
Cons: "Flight delays, we were on the plane for an hour after landing. sitting on the tarmac."
Pros: "The plane seemed safe and the flight crew were human"
Cons: "An hour plus delay at New Orleans due to weather at O'Hare turned into an extra 40 minutes dickering around the runways waiting for a gate. Also, as we approached final descent, we were told to return our seat backs to their upright position, which is kind of a dick move because the seats on this plane don't recline. Too much A/C."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled without explanation. Found out at the airport instead of text, email, or call beforehand."
Pros: "Seats are the most uncomfortable I've ever experienced. Maybe acceptable for short flight, but more than 2 hours never again."
Pros: "At one time I excused the consistent lack of customer service. I overlooked feeling simply like a number, for price but I was sadly wrong. Worse customer service on the planet..."
Cons: "I arrived at 5:40 stood in line not knowing more check in machines one the other side of where the customers stood. (Had the agent focus on us instead of being on the phone). Had check in on the drive there got there and was told I need two check in prior to 40 min of my flight. I said mam it's 5 min after if You try help me I'll make it. She sent me to another line, then they sent me to another line so he could say no refunds I should have read the fine print..... KICKER TO ALL THIS I MISS MY AUNTS FUNERAL AND THAT FLIGHT WAS DELAYED ONE HOUR... if they had pretended to do some customer service I'd have made my flight and her funeral."
Pros: "Friendly staff. That's it"
Cons: "They cancelled my Wednesday night flight and could not reschedule another flight till Friday to vegas but could not guarantee a flight from Vegas to Chicago. The next guarantee direct flight to Chicago is Sunday night. This is the worst delay I have ever gotten. Will never fly Spirit again."
Pros: "I made it home from NOLA in one piece."
Cons: "Had to wait for a gate to open for 40 minutes once we landed at our final destination. I realize that's not entirely the airlines fault, but it is their fault for thinking that it takes close to 3 hours to fly from NOLA to Chicago when it really only takes a little over 2 hours. So of course O'Hare didn't have a gate ready when we arrived 40 minutes early."
Pros: "The flight was delayed two hours. When we landed at our destination, we had to wait for over an hour to dock."
Cons: "Was told the only flight I would be guaranteed a seat on to Chicago was not until 36 hours later- So I bought a new ticket on a different airline to go home."
Pros: "I liked the easy boarding process. The crew was very polite. It was an easy, smooth flight."
Cons: "I am 5'3 and I only had a few inches between my knees and the back of the seat in front of me. Not super comfortable but my flight was only 2 hours so it was manageable."
Pros: "I picked my seat beforehand and it was a big, comfy seat. Flight was on time and smooth. Nice crew members"
Cons: "I dislike that you can't even get water without paying for it. Offer a little something!"
Pros: "The crew was very nice, jovial, made a lot of jokes and kept it light. The airplane, upon boarding, was clean. That's the best I can say about Spirit."
Cons: "Spirit has lower costs, but at a price. To check a bag is another $50, and $55 to carry it on, and while you can get discounts on this if you sign up to be an awards member with Spirit and manage it PRIOR to your flight, this was not explained anywhere in my original booking. Food and beverages are SO overpriced - it's clearly a major profit center for Spirit. The plane was not comfortable. Very tightly crowded, seats do not recline, no back pockets for storage, no entertainment or WiFi - bare bones comfort. At the Las Vegas airport, we waited in line to check our bags at the Spirit counter (the only option for bag checking) after signing in at the Kiosk for over 40 minutes, and at 45 minutes until our flight was about to take off, finally took our boarding passes so we could go through Security. If Security had been busy, we would have missed our flight. This was NOT handled well as they kept calling other flights to "jump" the line. Basically, Spirit touts a lower-cost airline for a small downgrade in comfort. In reality, it is a very SLIGHTLY lower-cost airline with a major downgrade in convenience and comfort. I will not be selecting Spirit again."
Pros: "Flight crew was very friendly and nice. Departure on time and arrival ahead of time, that's always nice."
Cons: "Don't like all the extra charges but now that I know how the system works maybe the next time it will be less. This is a no bells and whistles airline. Just gets you from one destination to another. That's fine by me."
Pros: "Jan 2 flight was cancelled due to crew issues. Spirit refunded me and said I would have to find another flight with another carrier. They could not get me to Chicago till Jan 5 which was unacceptable. As soon as I use my mileage points I am done with spirit. They don't leave on time and this has been going on for years"
Cons: "The seats were much more confined than flight to phoenix, I asked if I could occupy empty seats behind me, I was told no by flight attendant, medical purposes, yet one of them occupied during flight. I was very uncomfortable and in physical pain afterwatd, I will pay more $$ next time for extra room in other airline. I was also charged twice for reserving carry on luggage. Paying extra to eliminate these factors will be worth it too me."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Rip off airline...not worth the cheap price to then pay $55 for a carry on bag...plus you have to pay for drinks on the plane."
Pros: "Quick check-in and short lines for security"
Cons: "No free water? Really? Things spirit can't do anything about: noisy crying children, loud talking, etc. disrespectful travelers"
Pros: "Price of ticket"
Cons: "Primitive boarding procedure nearly caused us to miss the flight. Kiosks won't print your boarding pass within 45 minutes of your flight time, even if you are checked into your flight. And Spirit does not permit you to use a boarding pass on your phone, you must waste natural resources & print. Unfortunately, we had a problem while returning our rental car, so we were later to the kiosk than planned. So, we had to wait in line to ask an employee at the counter to print out boarding passes. Thanks to the kind passengers of LAX airport letting us jump in line several times, we made our flight just as doors closed."
Pros: "Plane was on time."
Cons: "There is no food for me on such flights if I have to pay $3 for a small bag of chips. N/A is a better answers for these kinds of flights. Also, there is no entertainment unless you bring your own stuff."
Pros: "Cheap"
Cons: "We were delayed over an hour, with no support at the gate to explain why or let us know when we would be leaving. Incredibly frustrating, as I booked this flight (instead of another airline) for the departure time. Would have rather used another airline.."
Cons: "We thought we found a great price for a quit trip to visit our new niece. We were totally wrong. Spirit charged us more than then the industry norm for a checked bag. I had tried to check it in early online but their mobile functionality doesn't handle payments. So that was $50. When we arrived they were highly disorganized and it wasn't clear what line to get into. Let's just assume that's just part of an airport experience. We get to the gate, and see that the flight has been delayed an hour. We decide to hang out there and learn over the intercom that the flight was delayed 2 more hours. Did they update the screen? Nope. Less than 20 minutes later they were boarding. It gets better though! After partly boarding the flight, they made everyone get out. We were grounded for a long time before and after landing without adequate information from the pilot on why or for how long. Finally when it got to the point I was going to pass out they wouldn't give me water because "I had the entire flight to make a purchase." Never again!! Never!!!"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "I could not check in using my phone. Had to log onto a computer to sign in online. Was not given my flight info, had to call for it because the online log in said "no itineraries found" when I did have a flight so I had to call and be on hold for 20 minutes before someone would email me my itinerary. Seats do not go back. Flight pricing, I felt tricked and like I was scammed. Nothing is included. Everything is so expensive."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "Tight squeeze seating, gum chewing staff with talons for fingernails and excessive jewelry and an attitude of excessive power over all on board, tight aisle space, non reclining and uncomfortable seating."
Pros: "Crew were delightful; Gate staff were excellent"
Cons: "Seats were awful; when I made my reservation, I selected my seat for each leg of my journey then when I arrived at the airport and checked in, I was given different seats.... paying $55 for a carry-on is ludicrous! I will not fly Spirit ever again!"
Cons: "when we were "checking in" it was difficult to add seats and add carry on luggage. also there were hidden fees we were not aware of at time of booking the flight. like paying for a seat, i thought that was covered by purchasing a ticket, & when do you need to pay for carry on luggage. i felt that spirit was "nickel & dime" the entire time."
Pros: "When the flight was over"
Cons: "The seats suck. They'll charge you for everything and their allowed carry-on bags are hilariously small. It was my first Spirit flight. And my last."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very friendly"
Cons: "Just terrible, cheap airline"
Pros: "I did not like any part of the experience. I love you kayak but please do not offer spirit airlines flights! They are truly terrible."
Cons: "Really dreadful! This airline is insanely riddled with hidden fees. They will charge you for every breath you take. By the time I was finished with paying the fees my flight had gone up by $100! Absolutely deplorable! I really enjoy kayak for the financial liberty it allows me and this Spirit airlines ripped it away from me. Not to mention none of these fees are mentioned before I purchased the flight! For god sakes buying a ticket doesn't even guarantee you a seat! I absolutely understand that every airline has extra fees, but Spirit was an insane outlier. I was charged for a Carry-on. A CARRY ON! Never again! Tisk tisk kayak!"
Pros: "I would rate entertainment as excellent, if by 'entertainment' you mean the ridiculous organization and communication of the staff. THey issued the wrong boarding pass to all passengers on a chicago bound flight, guided us to the wrong gate, and mistakenly told us that the flight was cancelled, when in fact it was a different flight that was cancelled. This led to many passengers booking new flights or going home."
Cons: "Everything"
Cons: "The flight to Chicago was delayed 1 hour. I had an horrible experience with the return flight, they first delayed it 2 hours, then 3 hours, then 4 hours... I spent 5 hours in the airport before I gave up on them and cancelled my flight back. I had to buy a ticket from another company.... Also the ticket price is misleading because they charge you for carry-on luggage (like 50 USD). During the flight they even charge you for water, which is free in other airlines :-("
Pros: "The crew was nice, very kind people."
Cons: "Delays, more delays, they seem to be not ready for the unexpected things that can occur. The plane is so small you feel like riding a bus with wings."
Cons: "For 24 hour check-in it costs money to pick a seat on website. Also checking bags are too expensive."
Cons: "I would never fly this airline again. I like to think I'm a pretty reasonable person when it comes to customer service, last minute changes, and things like that. Checking in was no problem. Our flight had already been delayed so I was prepared for a longer wait. As I sat there, the flight got delayed two additional times. Ok, no big deal, but when customers were asking why the attendants could not tell us. When asked a general time we would be boarding, people were told "when the captain gives us the OK." Finally, we boarded almost 4 hours later when the delay stated only 2 hours. The plane was OK, but the attendants were far from pleasant. I was OK with no Tvs, baggage prices, and all of that because I was aware beforehand, but the way the staff acted was completely disgusting. After finally getting Chicago, I waited almost 45 minutes for my bags. When I called my car to tell them the delay they replied that Spirit had been backed up all day. Why? No one really knew. On the way back from Chicago to Boston, the flight was set to board at 1:09 pm. The airport was extremely busy, so I did not get through security until about 1:40. I ran to the gate only to see that they hadn't boarded yet. No updated on their website of the delay and nothing sent to my email. We didn't actually board until about 2pm, and then had to wait an additional 30 minutes on the plane because one of the attendants was late getting on. So now, it is about 2:45 and we are finally taking off-originally scheduled at 1:54 with NO updates sent to the customers on the delay. No one explained the delay and no one could give a time when we would take off. A few people tried to call the airline to explain their concerns and were abruptly hung up on. The least Spirit could have done is listened to their concerns and gave an apology. I will never, EVER fly this airline, and I suggest you don't either."
Pros: "flight was on time"
Cons: "seats are too cramped. Passenger behind me kept kicking my seat the entire time (and she was a grown woman). People leaving the fight need to be told to be orderly. I had to calm down a verbal confrontation between two men because one guy try to rush from off from the back of the plane and bumped into another man. Crew did nothing, if I wouldn't have stopped the confrontation it may have gotten ugly."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "CARRY-ONS cost money. They cost more money if you don't buy them ahead of time. It costs extra to CHECK IN WITH AN AGENT. The airline is not upfront about any of this. These charges supposedly keep the cost of the ticket low: You only pay for exactly what you want (ie: if you don't have carry-ons, you can get away with paying less.). This is bullshit. They charge for WATER— tap water— on the plane. It is purely a money making scheme. They don't have repeat customers because they are awful. Oh and the seats are tinier than any flight I've ever been on. Truly the worst flying experience of my life."
Cons: "the worker saw me with terrible face and even they didn't explain me why my flight was canceled and they didn't help me anything . what they told me are just two things. refund or get another flight with another time .! . absoutely i did refund ."
Pros: "in-plane crew was efficient and unobtrusive."
Cons: "Plane landed late, taxied for later, and bags took over 2 hours to come out on baggage claim. some delays can be expected, but 3+ hour of delays without poor weather or any other noted special scenarios is absurd. No notices or apologies given."
Pros: "Excellent experience. It's always a good experience when the plane lands but to take a good thing to the level of excellence is not easy. Kayak and Spirit airlines are top-flight companies."
Cons: "I didn't know about Spirit airlines sooner."
Pros: "The airline is a bit of a fraud. It makes it seem that the tickets are cheap and.then you have to pay for everything including your own seats. The return flight got cancelled for no reason and we did not hear from the airlines not did they offer a solution on their own. We had to call and make you put us on a flight for the same day. I would not use you again."
