Despite the terrible weather situation, the crew made sure that all passengers were safe before taking off. We were all thankful that Delta made sure to take all precautions to insure a safe flight. Even though the flight was delayed, we were able to still make our connection in Atlanta We're thankful for the effort that Delta and the crew made to get us in the air, but making sure that everything was safe. Being a GA private pilot myself, I know all of the procedures that must be followed in order to get that flight safely off the ground.

Pros: "The plane was not full, so the stewardess put my wife and I by the exit seats. I am a tall guy and really appreciated it!"
Cons: "Both connecting flights were very tight time wise, and the gates were at opposite ends of the terminal. Couldn’t delta flights be closer together?"

Cons: "Passengers who pay retail for first class on domestic flights should get access to the Delta lounges even without the AE card. Other airlines do this, and we have come to expect it."
Pros: "The boarding was fast and very well handled."
Cons: "My flight from Chicago was two hours late and that's why I missed the flight from Atlanta to Buenos Aires. No one helped and did not know that the flight was delayed and I had to find a place to sleep. I'm not satisfied with the experience and I have not yet arrived in Argentina because of the whole"

Pros: "Despite small aircraft, boarding was fast and easy. On time departure and arrival. And quite clean aircraft despite a very fast turnaround. And Biscoff!!!! Delta's free wifi for messaging is a nice touch, as is free in-flight video. In-flight music would be nice, too. Doesn't hurt to ask :)"

Cons: "Delta is just another cattle car"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Cancelled my flight because I lost one of the arms"
Cons: "Layover"
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Too cold Not friendly boarding agent"
Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "2.5 hour delay for no apparent reason at first (supposed mechanical issues with plane) and then waited on plane at gate for a missing pilot who never got picked up from his airport and got stuck in Chicago traffic trying to get to O'Hare. Eventually had to take pilot from another flight before leaving at 8:45 when flight was scheduled for 6:00am."
Cons: "Had a death in the family and no one would help me get back home"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable. Snacks!!! Nice flight crew."
Cons: "I liked everything."
Pros: "The Gogo Inflight wifi and entertainment did not work for even a minute. I choose flights based on their amenities and this one had offered full WIFI service which swayed me to choose to fly with Delta. I'm not sure who is to blame about this issue but I'm pretty frustrated that it was completely dysfunctional."
Pros: "The movie I watched was pleasant, although I had trouble hearing it because of the situation described below."
Cons: "There was a family seated behind us with several crying, loud children. We were miserable. Even my headphones with a Mozart sonata cranked up to loud did little to mask the noise. Probably not Dela'a fault, but the crew did nothing to mitigate the problem."
Cons: "Plane was sat broken at gate and needed part to be flown in. 150 minutes delayed. Not acceptable."
Pros: "No fee to get on an earlier flught"
Cons: "When I tried to rebook online this flight was not an option"
Pros: "Left on time....arrived on time. Boarding was as good as it ever gets. Anytime you can get your carry on in the overhead bin it is a great flight."
Cons: "It wasn't easy to find what gate I had to go to. I didn't see any boards in the check in area. It was only after TSA check that I found a staff member who gave me the information. After that all went okay. The problem might have been my own....it is a big airport."
Pros: "This time the tea was nice and hot!"
Pros: "Great crew. Good space on my exit row seat"
Cons: "Seat doesn't recline, though it's considered a "premium" seat. No power either. Ticketing process was crazy - I was not able to get a seat assignment until 5 minutes before boarding. Why? And there was no explanation of the situation. I had to ask, multiple times, what was going on,before I was finally told that I was going to get on, but they just didn't know where. This could be handled much more clearly!"
Pros: "The crew was so nice and helpful and the Captain’s in-flight announcements were helpful."
Pros: "The new premium economy seats were really nice."
Cons: "Check the pillows in premium economy for any stains. I had a pillow with several 2-inch yellow/red stains on it. There were no more pillows of those pillows, so the attendant gave me one from business class."
Cons: "Was next to crying child. I do understand crying children. But I should have footed a free glass of rose."
Cons: "flight delayed, gate busy when we got there, took train to next terminal and gate, plane was there for another 20 minutes but...door was closed and couldn't board...rebooked to different airport"
Cons: "Lack of a crew delayed flight 4 + hours."
Pros: "Everything was awesome. No wait, fast boarding, nice crew!"
Cons: "Absolutely nothing. TSA in Tulsa can always speed up or open more lanes!"
Pros: "Flight was cancelled after multiple delays & I changed to United."
Cons: "Stop delaying & canceling flights, especially last minute"
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "The delays due to software"
Pros: "Really easy boarding and flight. Great in flight entertainment options."
Pros: "Seat assignment process was great and considerate of my preferences."
Cons: "If AA could fix its luggage handling process that would be great. BOTH (!) of my bags have been lost on this flight. Both have been eventually located, recovered and delivered to me, but experience was not pleasant this time."
Pros: "Service from crew was fine"
Cons: "No delay! Got notification that our flight was one half hour earlier. Then boarded aircraft, and it had electrical problems. Delayed. We had to get off. Then board another aircraft."
Pros: "Everything about the service and hospitality."
Cons: "The short connection time allowed at Heathrow."
Pros: "Comfortable seats and snack / drinks service"
Cons: "Delayed flight departure and bumpy landing"
Cons: "I was apparently "flagged" by British Airways for extra security checks. As I understood it in London, I was randomly selected for this security check. This then apparently meant that I was to be flagged for all subsequent flights. This meant that in Chicago, after going through two other security checks that day (Zurich and London) and completing customs, I had to engage in a full Homeland security check. This involved removing protective covers from my laptop and phone that were hard to get off (not meant to be taken off regularly) and a full body search that I did not have to do in London. After many hours of traveling, this was very a frustrating experience."
Pros: "Good service in-flight. Pretty comfortable seats and decent in-flight food/beverage options."
Cons: "Crew was slamming overhead compartments before take-off and would ignore questions from passengers. Late take-off, very late gate change and late arrival. No help from crew on the plan to get bags taken care of so boarding took forever."
Cons: "I tried to change my seat to an available window seat several times after online check in opened using the app and consistently received error messages so ended up stuck in a middle seat."
Cons: "It was not clear that I needed a different 6 letter code to checkin using the AA website. I finally got frustrated and called AA only to find out the code was different. The codes should have been the same or you should have referenced it on the website when I tried to check in"
Cons: "On my first flight from SLC to ORD I asked 3 different American Airlines employees if I needed to pay for my carryon before I got on the plane. They all said no. I got on the plane, put my carryon under the seat in front of me and everything was great. I landed in Chicago, got to my gate, went to board and this very rude employee stopped me after I scanned my ticket and told me I couldn’t board with my bag. The EXACT bag I had boarded with in SLC. After harshly grabbing my bag and putting it in the carryon basket to check for size, she wouldn’t let me pass by her into the boarding bridge and told me I was going to have to pay. I tried explaining that I had asked I’m SLC if I needed to check it and they had all said no and that it fit under my seat. She said, “I don’t care what they said in SL, this is what I’m saying here.” And directed me to the front desk where I had to pay $50!! $50 for a carryon backpack that fit under my seat comfortably 20 minutes before!! Without saying a word (cause I didn’t want to yell at the poor girl behind the desk) I paid the $50 and proceeded to enter the bridge but before I passed through, the rude woman said, “have a nice flight ma’am” and scoffed!! An audible scoff. So I’m short, I hate American Airlines and I will do my BEST to not have to fly with them in the future."
Pros: "Landing at my final destination."
Cons: "Over 3 hours of delays. American Airlines needs to get their act together at Chicago O’Hare airport."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by untold circumstances causing us to miss our connecting flight to Venice."
Pros: "I'm glad they didn't fly an airplane that didn't pass the mechanic's evaluation."
Pros: "On time departure and early arrival"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Nice crew Spacious plane"
Pros: "The crew was amazing, flight was very smooth, arrived early, plane clean, service was great."
Cons: "For being in first class, my seat did not recline so I couldn't sleep and audio for my entertainment center was not working"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Pilot was going so fast never told us why we kept descending and going back up and people were throwing up and they wouldn’t give soda to settle stomachs"
Cons: "Great trip"
Pros: "Not turbulence"
Pros: "Was on time."
Cons: "Not eventful."
Cons: "Luggage did not make the transfer on time (Chicago-Charlotte after Tokyo), although they had about 45 minutes to load it. Do not buy an international ticket with less than 1.5 hours transfer time. (It took 45 minutes to get through customs/immigration and retrieve luggage for transfer."
Cons: "All was excellent! Only the internet was not working good , payed for all flight access but most of the time the internet was not working. Anyway I contacted support team and they refunded me"
Pros: "Personal TVs with many movie and game options. I also liked that I could view the flight map and timing details. Meals and crew were great too!"
Pros: "A flight that actually had extra seats? I couldn't believe it. Plus the entertainment options made the 8 hour flight "fly" by (no pun intended)"
Pros: "The time of the flights were very good- both departure and arrival"
Cons: "On the departure flight, the flight attendants in economy kept hitting the seats each and everyone they brought out food and drink trolleys."
Pros: "on time"
Cons: "very cold"
Pros: "Boarding was efficient, easy. Lots of movie choices. Quiet flight."
Cons: "Flight attendant with an attitude. He announced the dinner choices but turned around the moment he began speaking. When I asked what he had said, he rolled his eyes. That's pretty disgusting and takes a lot away from the overall experience. Sorry, that I'm a burden when I paid a ton of money for this flight. And I had no extra or special requests. I'm an easy passenger. I didn't ring for service outside the scheduled ones once... E.V.E.R. Food was the same sweet sour chicken that I had on every one of my flights with American Airlines in the last few years. Come on. Mix it up a little. The flight is expensive enough. A tiny bit more pampering would just make the difference. And flight attendants with a pleasant and patient attitude would make things a lot easier."
Cons: "This made the check in process extremely frustrating and confusing. Traveling with my elderly dad who had to squeeze between two large men for 7 hours because people who actually booked the airline got priority seating. We had to pay an extra $500 to upgrade to comfortable seats. Not pleased w Kayak."
Pros: "flight left on time and went smoothly. Flight crew was very nice."
Cons: "person next to me did not fit in their seat and spilled over into mine. Could not even put armrest down - so i was sitting in less than a full seat.."
Cons: "Ground crew was inadequate and unorganized. Ground crew caused a late flight to be even later. Plane was overbooked and the ground crew was more interested in filling the flight than accommodating Advantage Member seating."
Pros: "Good communication"
Cons: "I don't understand why you boarded the flight when it seemed you knew there would be a delay to take off to SFO. We boarded only to learn we would sit at the gate for 30 min and the wait on the tarmac for anothe 40. Why not just delay the flight an board an hour later? It would have been a lot more comfortable in the terminal."
Pros: "Commuter flight, got me where I needed to go. The crew and staff where really friendly, even with all the confusion of trying to move a couple with a young child out of the emergency row."
Pros: "Premium space"
Cons: "Sporadic communication from flight deck on the nature of 2-hour flight delay. Initially we understood that dispatch was the issue because of fuel for the flight. Next, it was a weather delay followed by an apparent ground stop."
Pros: "mango juice and soft blankets"
Cons: "too much time between meals"
Pros: "On the 2nd flight it must've been a new airplane because this was the first time my knees weren't jammed into the seat in front of me flying coach. Most comfortable flight I've been on in a decade."
Pros: "The crew were exceptionally friendly and helpful. They made the negatives about the flight much more bearably be their excellence service whether during boarding, in flight, or after landing."
Cons: "I booked the flight originally through british airways and expected your standard, modern plane for cross atlantic travel. Boarding to find myself on a 767 designed (and likely built) in the 80s was rather disappointing."
Cons: "I was unable to get this flight and rebooked onto a United flight that was denatured 4 hours."
Pros: "Overall it was a fine flight we were delayed an hour boarding. But this is good because apparently they didn't have a place for us to unload in Boston and we would rather be walking around the terminal in Chicago than sitting on the plane on the runway"
Cons: "As I mentioned in my last comment I was seated at the back of the plane on over four and a half hour flight by the time the food got to me they had ran out that I mention that I'm a diabetic with high blood pressure so I have to sit and suffer for over 3 hours will never ever fly American again"
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "My luggage was lost!!! People were sympathetic but no apologies or compensation Also, we were forced to pay extra for our seats before we were able to print boarding passes. My husband and I were not able to sit together which was upsetting to me."
Pros: "Seats had enough room. Inhad been worred they'd be too close since iwas the middle of a 5 person row."
Cons: "The boarding was terirble. We were over and hr late take off and it was very hot boarding and it took a long time. Also the air was so dry i got a nose bleed."
Pros: "Staff was courteous, efficient, and professional. Plane was clean and the seats seemed roomier too. Pilot was excellent. He made up considerable time once we were in the air."
Cons: "Flight kept getting delayed."

Boarding process was unclear. The gate was behind a pillar and there were no clear traffic flows. Gate agent announced group 5 before 4. Thats on gound staff. We were delayed on taxi - pilots recognized debris on the taxiway (great spotting, greatly appreciated the safety measures!) but then we entered the taxi of doom, getting jumped by many aircraft - we left the gate early but didn't take off for nearly an HOUR! Flight crew barked at passengers to stay seated but then once in flight, they didn't consider how long we had been seated without access to the lavatories and chastised passengers who were literally hours into waiting to use the restroom once the seatbelt sign was turned off. The landing was HARD and multiple passengers shrieked upon touchdown. Just not the best flight. Hard to blame United, definitely a rough night, but the service should have been announced and passengers given the chance to use the lavs. I didn't myself, but many were frustrated.

Pros: "They were friendly. Seats are rarely comfortable..."
Cons: "I think all planes need better leg room...."
Pros: "The flight was on time and smooth."
Cons: "Too many people with carry on luggage."
Cons: "The Boarding was not fair. The most horrible experience in my life and the Customer Service made me felt like a delinquent."
Pros: "Free upgrade to business class"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "A flight not canceled due to mechanical failure. A staff that were actually helpful. United could care less and I will never fly with them again"
Pros: "Friendly crew, tasty meals. Comfortable seats"
Pros: "Flight attendants were absolutely amazing!!!!! They made the trip very enjoyable!"
Cons: "Food!"
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "Kind crew."
Cons: "Did not allow me to have carry on. Had to pay for it to be checked. Unexpected cost."
Pros: "Nothing!"
Cons: "Kayak sent me a message that our connecting flight out of O'Hare was boarding at gate B5. However, checking the monitors in the terminal showed the correct gate was B21, which is on the opposite end of the terminal. I don't know why Kayak had the wrong information on this. We barely made our connecting flight because our starting flight was over 30 minutes late, which was United's fault. This made rushing to the correct gate for our connecting flight all the more stressful. No time to stop at the bathrooms or pick up something to eat. Both United and Kayak let me down on getting back to Hartford. We arrived at the end of boarding with no room left for our bags in the overheads so we had to check them and pick them up at the carousel. A totally BAD flight experience."
Pros: "Overall service at was very satisfactory on all the sectors. In-flight service was excellent. Lounges were good at Mumbai and Frankfurt. Pl. see my comments about United lounge at Chicago."
Cons: "I was denied an entry to the UNITED LOUNGE at Chicago Air port. The lady stated that this lounge is only for the departing passengers! She scanned my boarding card.and I said to her that I am departing to Detroit. She said I can enter if I am a GOLD card member or purchase a day pass for $59.00. I declined. I am under the impression that United is a partner of Lufthansa.and that they should honor the same Business class privileges as Lufthansa. I found it rather discriminatory act on the part of this particular employee of the United lounge at Chicago airport. Pl. bring it to the attention of the Lufthansa and United . I will appreciate follow up on this matter."
Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "The entertainment system for an international flight was lacking compared to other airlines."
Pros: "Corralled group lines allowed people to get in line when I was ready versus open entrance for each group"
Cons: "Plane arrived late to gate making my flight arrive in Austin an hour later. I have an ride home, too."
Pros: "Quick"
Pros: "Comfortable Flight"
Cons: "Inflight WI-FI doesn’t work, it kept on dropping in the middle of the movie or it went back to the beginning. Couldn’t see a movie."
Cons: "You better get rid of basic economy."
Pros: "No delay, friendly crew"
Pros: "Boarding was fine, no delays. Crew was nice, no complaints there! I had an empty seat next to me, so could stretch out. Luckily I brought a blanket with me, since I know from previous experience it's always too cold on planes."
Cons: "The entertainment didn't work on my iPad or my iPhone. I kept getting an error. Also, the WIFI is way too expensive."
Pros: "Associates were nice and knowledgeable. The airplanes were comfortable. Love the onetime performance of scheduling."
Cons: "Unite Airline performance wasn't the good. Also, there was nobody in Chicago to help us with the transferring process."
Pros: "Orderly boarding seat nice crew good"
Cons: "Snacks in first class were lame"
Pros: "Snacks and drink"
Cons: "Average"
Pros: "Nice plane, looks clean and new"
Cons: "Seats were surprisingly uncomfortable for some reason. They were new, but I think they're just new and not "broken in"?"
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable and cramped."
Pros: "Everyone was friendly, but touchdown was kind of brutal"
Pros: "Wasn't thrown off"
Cons: "Another delayed flight with United"
Cons: "They might as well have thrown us in a car trunk the crew was very unaccommodating they didn't really care about us and the room legroom is ridiculously smal. On the connecting flight, the last flight the plane was two thirds empty and the crew made us sit in our assigned seats, crammed together telling us that if we want to sit in a seat with more legroom we have to pay $180"
Cons: "Too many seats too close together. The entire trip was too hot and stuffy. The flight attendants showed minimal care about the uncomfortable hot and stuffy environment."
Cons: "Took a long time to get support when gate changed. Could not walk at the time due to skiing accident."
Pros: "The crew of this flight were amazing, attentive, and so positive. They certainly made the long flight an enjoyable one. The only challenge was that the in-flight entertainment stopped working 5 hours into the flight. That said, the crew informed us of how United would compensate us for that. As for the landing, that was perfect. We eased onto the tarmac so gently it barely felt as though we had landed."
Cons: "I wasn't too excited that the in-flight entertainment quit working about five hours in, but the crew did their best to remedy the situation. It did stink that we were delayed in disembarking, but that wasn't the fault of the crew. Lastly, I do wish that food came complimentary with it being a 9-hour flight. The options presented were tasty looking but it felt a little like we were being nickeled and dimed."
Pros: "Crew was lovely."
Cons: "Seats BARELY reclined, and leg room was minimal. The whole flight was very uncomfortable even for someone who's only 5'3" who flys regularly. Also, no in flight entertainment for a long flight. Total fail."
Pros: "We'll coordinated."
Cons: "The seats were terribly uncomfortable (including her flight to Chicago). The cushion made me slide down the seat and could not get comfortable."
Pros: "New plane. I like the new seats with the slot that can hold my iPad cover so I could watch a movie. The services was great."
Cons: "Nothing."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by more than an hour due to maintenance issue which could have been avoided."
Pros: "Free entertainment"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seating and couldn't sleep"
Cons: "I went on this trip as an veterinary humanitarian out reach. I was also guardian to one high school student so that she might have an experience of such to guild her future. Her flight was missed booked to leave after mine, I attempted to rebook my flight with Luthansia but they would not let me me even partial rebook. I attempted a number of times to rebook the flight but their solution was extreme financial gain for them when more reasonable alternative could have been arranged. They canceled my entire return flight and left me stranded. I had to piece together a return flight on a shoe string budget. Thankfully American Airlines was understanding for it appears Luthansia and United are not."
Pros: "Free entertainment on your own devices"
Cons: "We left late, so even though I had rushed to catch my connection, we still sat in the plane for half an hour. Is it possible to build in more time between connecting flights? Which luckily was also late. Too bad people now have to pay for food."
Pros: "The promptness on the flight -the friendly crew - arriving on time means the most, also the flight itself was smooth"
Cons: "There were no ticketing agents at the gate adding an hour to the flight."
Cons: "Same as above, including late flight"
Pros: "Over all it was a great flight aside from the rain delay but that's Mother Nature for you"
Cons: "Flight delay"
Cons: "Flight was delayed due to severl technical issues. Crew at least offer free drinks or snacks for the five hour delay."
Pros: "Nice clean planes and seat, on time performance"
Cons: "The flight attendant was hard to understand"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Multiple delays and gate changes; chaotic boarding; shabby plane condition (bathroom looked held together with duct tape)."
Pros: "easy transfer"
Cons: "had to transfer"
Pros: "The crew was very nice, the plane seating and room was comfortable, no complaints."
Pros: "Tons of food and water. Movies good. Staff on plane were excellent. Clean bathrooms and peacful. Nice that headphones were provided."
Cons: "Seats should not be set to go back so far, if a person in front sets back all way, no space passenger behind. The seats should be calibrated to go back less of an angle."
Cons: "Some inspector idiot decided that the exterior cover stickers weren't "up to code" literally half an hour before my flight, delaying us 2 hours. I got onto a different flight at the last second, then the same thing happened to that plane. Brilliant on their parts. I almost lost a job interview thanks to your people."

CSR WAS VERY RUDE AND UNPROFESSIONAL, I WILL NEVER FLY FRONTIER EVER AGAIN

There should be SOMETHING complimentary on these flights!! You pay for EVERYTHING except water! I hate traveling Frontier and Spirit. They say you get what you pay for and that's so true with these airlines. Lesson learned!

We paid $47 to check one carefully packed 50 lb bag on the way. Our return trip, they charged $65 for the base fee and only then chose to inform us that we would be required to pay an extra ONE HUNDRED DOLLARS - total of $165 one way! A because, since our departure, they had reduced the permissible weight to 40 lbs. ONE HUNDRED ADDITIONAL DOLLARS FOR LESS THAN TEN POUNDS WHEN WE WERE TOLD 50 LBS WAS THE LIMIT. I know their fares are cheap but my lord, their seats are tiny, they nickel and dime EVERYTHING, and they legit steal from you by changing the rules and price-gouging. Gross. I’ll pay more on the front end next time, because at those prices I could’ve flown a non-budget airline and been comfortable and had a damn complimentary water.

I’m sure it’s due to Covid but I feel the staff could have been more friendlier. They seemed very shy but overall they were very pleasant and nice

I liked nothing flying from ATL to Denver , flight was delayed 4 hrs , we were told to move from one terminal across the airport , then was told to move back to the same spot later when we were told the flight will be leaving at 12:12 vs 1:46 am which means they moved us three times . When we got back to the first spot which was d1 from e1 we were then told we will be departing at 1:46 😂. I had my wife and daughter , we were never offered anything at all , when we used the vending machines in the airport nothing worked no stores open at all. When we finally got told to board we were placed in the tunnel for over 20 min , then where It got real bad was in the plane , take note we were all tired hungry and wanted something to drink . We then board the plane , we sit down and I asked the Stewart if I could have some water he told me when we are in the air , I told him thank you and tried to get comfortable as we have Been sitting in an un air-conditioned airport In The section we were in . As I am sitting there the same person I asked gave multiple bottles of water to certain individuals , I was flabbergasted at that point but wait gets even better . I am exhausted at this point as I have walked miles in this airport with my wife and daughter . We get in the air and he gives me a small half cup of water , lol what a kind gesture . The cabin lights dim besides where the stewardesses are sitting , about 15 min goes by waiting for the plane to get dark so I can fall asleep but remember hungry and tired . I watch two of them start cooking ramen noodles , cup of noodles , chicken and sweet potatoes, make tea and drink multiple bottles of water mind you hungry , tired . I then watch then have a full blown conversation and eat right directly infront of me , no social distancing at all , concerned at this point hungry , tired , thirsty , gets better . Two more come up they start to eat no social distancing 4 people full blown conversation , lack of other people's space , inconsiderate, we ask them to quiet down alittle so they continue with no mind being very rude and unthoughtful of how much everyone went throught from the nasty floor, unconditioned area of the airport, to the vending machines that don't work, the flight delay moving my family three times , watching people eat with no consideration of others , no way to sleep cause 4 frontier stewardesses wanted to eat , discuss there issues, and carry on like we don't exist with the lights on the entire flight in the front of the plane , my entire Tuesday was wasted , now today not doing so well as you try and give us 50$ voucher .

Cons: "Really uncomfortable seats that do not recline, several people constantly taking off masks, they charged for water (3$), no WiFi option or entertainment at all, tray table is too small to put anything on"
Cons: "Less crying screaming babies and a young boy banging the back of seat. And his rude mother denying his unruly behavior."
Cons: "Airport security at Orlando was insane! The line through TSA must have been over 500 yards. Also, it doesn't appear that this Frontier flight allowed for online confirmation so, although the Frontier Desk was super fast processing passengers, the two lines together was stressful and used up valuable pre-boarding time. Some advance warning might help passengers schedule their arrival at the airport."
Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "The tray tables are tiny. The seats are hard. It’s obvious they’re cutting corners."
Pros: "when our first flight was delayed so long many of us would have missed our comnector so they held the flight until we got there."
Cons: "more staff, not overworked and rude. better communication. no lost luggage."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly"
Cons: "Pretty much everything else, should have WiFi by now even if it’s paid"
Pros: "Crew was great especially the guy, didn’t catch his name..."
Cons: "Seats that recline would’ve been nice"
Pros: "Crew was excellent, always smiling and upbeat!"
Cons: "I don't think it could have been, I will definitely fly Frontier again!"
Cons: "Being on time, giving free snacks/beverages, communication"
Pros: "The crew was wonderful."
Cons: "Knee space is tight for someone with long legs."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "- 4 hour delay - dirty plane - plane was about 80 degrees - delay got us into airport at 130am and all the rental car places were closed"
Cons: "The flight when from being a reasonable timing flight to taking me almost two days to get from Chicago to Portland."
Cons: "We missed this flight because our earlier flight was delayed and all frontier would do is tell us that we could “google” flights on other airlines to get us where we needed to go. No hotel voucher for the forced overnight, no refund for the missed leg, nothing. I really don’t understand how this company is in business."
Pros: "Our flight was delayed and the crew was very nice and took great care of us"
Pros: "Boarding was smooth"
Cons: "The seats in the plane"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "The food wasn't free on the airline"
Pros: "The crew, captain and great customer service."
Cons: "The seats, uncomfortable and some of the passengers were acting like big kids. They wasn't following directions from the flight crew."
Pros: "The other amazing people on my 2 scrappy flights who I got to know because we suffered through delays, deplaning, regarding and mean, crabby insulting flight attendants and gate crew. New Frontier marketing campaign: "sure we suck, but at Frontier, you make new and lasting friendships binding in the suffering"."
Cons: "See above."
Cons: "Our flight was due to leave at 5pm and we didn't leave till close to 830pm!"
Pros: "This leg was OK"
Pros: "Everyone is on time or ahead of time and the people who served us in the plane or very nice"
Cons: "When I needed to make arrangements for bloggers to order things to do at the change the flight times it was almost impossible to Richard Hillman when I did the person if I talked to was nice and helpful but it was just very difficult to reach a human"
Cons: "The bag fees are ridiculously high, seats are super small and I'm only 5'2". Crew was pulling people on and off the flight when leaving Phoenix. Early check in online is not mobile friendly. With bag fees and seat upgrade I spent an additional $87....never again."
Pros: "Not much...if you don't care about comfort or paying extra for everything that other airlines include or charge less for, this is the airline for you."
Cons: "This was my first frontier flight and I plan to not take them again. My total flight cost came out to be the same as a normal flight on better airlines after all was said and done. The base price of the flight is cheaper than others, but just know that the add-ons is where they get you. Paying for every little thing is absolutely ridiculous (60$ for checked bag round trip, seating assignments that ranged from $15-$27 but the type of seat or leg room does not change between those prices, only water was available for free...all other sodas and juices cost money). Be prepared to pay for your carry on as well if it doesn't fit under your seat infront of you. On top of this, the seats are like sitting in plastic folding chairs. No cushioning on seat or back and they do not recline, which makes paying extra for a seat even more frustrating. No wifi or in flight entertainment on board either...this is the 21st century, if other 'budget' airlines can provide the minimum of wifi then frontier should as well, to make up for everything I stated above. The flight attendants were fine, nothing spectacular though. I've had friendlier attendants on other flights. A man a few rows behind me threw up as we were preparing to land as well. I know this has nothing to do with the flight, but it was the first time I've had something like that occur on a flight."
Pros: "Great price! Comfortable! We enjoyed the flight"
Pros: "TSA pre approval"
Cons: "Separate charges for everything. Waiting to depart a long time after boarding. Waiting we'll over an hour at bag check. Really? You have to pay for water?"
Pros: "Absolutely awful"
Cons: "Most uncomfortable flight I've ever been on!!!!"
Cons: "Frontier packs they're passengers in and charges for everything, don't book flights longer then a couple hours as its the most uncomfortable plan I've ever flown on. I'll probably not fly frontier again."
Pros: "The price and the flight crew."
Cons: "I paid for the luxury of being allowed to board. I had to pay extra for a seat, to check my bag, to check my carry-on, for my coffee (which really didn't taste good). If it's economy you're after, this is a good choice. But overall Frontier would in my opinion have to work hard to achieve mediocrity."
Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats that didn't recline Tiny tray tables - unuseable No wifi on cross-country flight Charges for everything, including coffee"
Pros: "the price"
Cons: "Flight's weren't on time, no food or snacks. Flight's weren't on time, no food or snacks. Had to pay for baggage."
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "I was forced to pay $60 to check my bag. They would not let me on the plane otherwise. They were unprofessional."
Cons: "Very rude flight attendant."
Pros: "The crew was wonderful and did a fantastic job accommodating people's seat preferences. They were very courteous and hospitable!!!!"
Cons: "It seemed that every where a few could be charged, one was charged. Pay for your seat (not just an upgrade, your actual seat after paying for the flight), pay for any beverage or snack, pay for carry on (not a personal item). I absolutely should have looked up the extra fees before the day of the flight, it was just funny how the ticket seemed so cheap at booking only to find all of this out after booking."
Pros: "Gate attendent was rude and unhelpful to other passengers."
Cons: "These people can't seem to get a plane off the ground - excuse after excuse, and joking about it all the way. Oblivious to the hardship this causes their passengers. Two words: never again."
Cons: "delayed two hours and were not kept updated, checked suitcase was torn when we picked up at baggage"
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "I had to pay $60 at the gate for my carry on because nowhere during the purchase of my tickets did it tell me that I had to pay for carry ons."
Cons: "Paying additional fees for carry-on AND checked bags. Baggage fees increased on my return trip."
Cons: "I had a very small hand bag and was charged 45.00 dollers for it, thats mean."
Pros: "I love the affordable direct flight between Atlanta and Salt Lake City"
Pros: "The lady who got placed next to me."
Cons: "Getting onto the flight not actually having a seat or boarding zone on my ticket. Also the trays are completely useless. And the on board food and drinks are Way over Priced and wasn't offered until almost the end of the flight. Over All I wouldn't choose this Flight again."
Cons: "Flight cancelled due to weather. No other to help with rebooking or solutions to being stranded in the airport. Calls and emails all fell on death ears. As a Colorado resident I try to fly frontier exclusively, no more. I will never give my money to this failing airline."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled and the airline made no attempt to rebook my travel and I have no idea when my refund will be processed as they said they "could not" provide me a reciept of the refund???? Seriously frontier???? I'm done."
Pros: "Low fares"
Cons: "All of the hidden fees"

EVIL SPIRIT It was only a 3hr flight so we didn't care about the comfort or ameneties to save a few bucks. Got boarding passes 24 hrs in advance, then departure time changed no less than 6 times before we took off. Spirit "customer service?" didn't even know. Transport from our hotel got re-arranged several times and we ended up sitting in the airport for extra hours (with little ones). Minimal staff on baggage check created long lines. Rude boarding clerk said "next time, print your boarding passes" (tough from a hotel room). Very Rude flight attendant (a feeble old man named Pasqual) threatened during boarding to throw off anyone who didn't wear their mask properly "you'll have to find another way to Hartford, but it won't be on Spirit". And "don't try to eat a bag of chips for 6 hrs. That won't work here" That was a general announcement, not directed at anyone in partiucular. Several other snide remarks. It's fair that a discount airline cut some corners on the extras, but it doesn't cost anything for courteous staff. Our Frontier flight to Orlando was excellent but we picked Spirit for the retun trip for a better departure time, which didn't work out anyway. Next time it's Frontier round trip!

Cons: "No"
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Everything."
Cons: "More padding on the seats. They were just a little hard."
Pros: "Fast boarding!"
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable, entertainment is non existent."
Pros: "It's cheap!"
Cons: "The amount of space on the plane is incredibly restricted. The seats are actually thinner to accommodate more passengers. We flew on Spirit because it was the only direct flight available to us. Also, it is difficult to gauge the actual price since they charge for EVERYTHING."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I had a medical issue over one month prior and received ZERO help from Spirit. I will avoid your airline at all costs."
Pros: "Smooth check in."
Cons: "Crew wasn't 1/4 as friendly as the flight from Hartford to Orlando."
Pros: "Announcements not clear in airport. Attendants on board rushed, not interested. Giving info and answering questions as if from only a rehearsed script. Seats extremely uncomfortable. The back of the seat.as well as no room at all to sit! The other passengers are right on top of you touching at all times. Not pleasant. Aisles very tiny. If ever a major problem with the aircraft, it would be very hard to exit the plane quickly and safely. Very nervous about this airline. Pilot seems capable and flight was smooth, so I guess that’s a plus. The first time I flew spirit, they didn’t give us the baggage carousel and the attendant in airport didn’t know. Tried another and was given a wrong carosel. The psssaengers found it on their own and called out to others. I always fly BDL to MCO and back. I travel alone or with children. Not much choices on the flights times etc."
Pros: "Very nice flight attendants"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Clean and good plane"
Pros: "NOTHING"
Cons: "I was told I missed my flight to and they canceled my flight home WITHOUT contacting any of the 4 people in my party. Then said there is nothing I can do about it you need a new ticket home."
Cons: "I will never fly with spirit again and will make sure to tell people about them and there ridiculous fees. We had a delay and was not announced we had to ask, when boarding they didn’t call by zone they just let everybody in at the same time.. VERY DISAPPOINTED"
Cons: "Like nothing from the 6 hr delay, no compensation like other airlines, didn’t allow me or offer to re schedule the flight knowing I was flying with 2 minors. Got us on the plane, then made us wait another hour or more before taking off. The desk informed us not to worry about, we were going to get some compensation, asked to call directly to Spirit. Called Spirit and they told me they don’t give my compensation. First time traveling with Spirit, and didn’t like it. I rather pay more and be conformatble and not have to worry about paying for seats in order to seat with my kids and husband. Pay for the extra bags etc ..."
Pros: "direct flight"
Cons: "water should be free"
Pros: "The PILOT was one of the best...wish I knew his name. Take off and landing was so smooth"
Cons: "Flight attendant was nasty...should have gotten her name"
Cons: "Good experience crew was great"
Pros: "Boarding went smooth"
Cons: "If you are over 5’10” don’t ever fly Spirit as the seats are exceptionally small. Surrounded by screeching babies the entire way kicking my seat the entire flight. Absolutely miserable"
Pros: "stewardess was pleasant"
Cons: "Plane was 4 hour delayed luggage cost very expensive it makes them no cheaper and probably more expensive than other airlines"
Pros: "All staff very helpful"
Cons: "The $50 luggage fee is ridiculous. Might keep me from flying spirit"
Pros: "Smooth ride"
Cons: "To much money for carry on logged"
Pros: "Efficient boarding"
Pros: "Price was great! Plane arrived early. Check in went smoothly and great customer service. Crew was friendly and professional."
Cons: "The seats are small and uncomfortable but I was prepared for that and it was ok for a 3 hr flight. I would not fly Spirit for a longer flight b/c of the seats."
Pros: "clean plane"
Cons: "my carry on single bag was charge $55 because it was overstuffed by an inch. Rip off"
Cons: "Their r too pricy charge u too much for luggage the seat too they should have everything included one time payment"
Pros: "The crew was good, attentive."
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable and the landing with a touch bumpy."
Pros: "Quick boarding and friendly and polite staff very tight seating"
Cons: "Very tight seating and would have liked free beverage or even water"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Waited in line for 90 minutes to get boarding passes"
Pros: "Flight was on time leaving and early arriving in Hartford. Flight attendant was funny. Seats were comfortable. Captain was very informative and professional."
Cons: "Baggage fees are way too expensive. We ended up paying double for the flights than what we first booked them at with all the extra charges. Would not suggest Spirit to families but would to singles or business people who don't need ANY extras..."
Pros: "Flight itself was quick and well done...."
Cons: "App is terrible... they tell you it's cheaper to pay for carry on and check in bag ahead of time but the app would not allow you to do so. At the airport they charge you $10 new for each I think it's a scam...."
Pros: "Great service nice and clean"
Pros: "Flights arrived early"
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable. Very little leg room."
Pros: "I was very worried about the luggage size, but it was not a problem. There was no drama at anytime about the luggage. Flights were on time, attendants were great, the seat size seemed about the same as other airlines. I definitely would fly again."
Pros: "Staff was great and helpful."
Cons: "Price for carry one too high."
Cons: "Not enough leg room."
Cons: "Lack of WiFi."
Pros: "On time boarding and departure. Nice job by pilot."
Cons: "Loud. Talkative flight attendant and people she was speaking with."
Pros: "Everything was great and hassle free. Thanks !"
Pros: "I loved the comfortable seats, the leg room, the crew was great, the flight was on time and arrived early!!"
Cons: "The only thing I didn’t like was the price on the checked bag, I think the price could be cheaper!!"
Pros: "Price, clean, friendly. I will be back !"
Cons: "Im alive!!!"
Pros: "The base price of the fare was quite good. The flight was on-time."
Cons: "They quote one price for checked baggage if you pay when the ticket is purchased, another if you pay before check-in, and a third price if you purchase at check-in. When I purchased my tickets through KAYAK, I was not offered an option to pay for a bag. When I paid for the bag a full day before I checked in, I was charged the full price with no other options available - in other words, THEY LIED. I emailed a question to their customer service address; it went unacknowledged and unanswered. The flight itself went OK, but the seats don't recline at all, there is very little knee or elbow room, and the padding is the worst I have experienced. If you are larger than average or have knee or back problems, expect to be in torment. They charge for EVERYTHING, even plain water. After paying full price for my checked bags, the savings for the flight over other carriers was simply not worth the discomfort."
Pros: "This airline is no frills basic but the flight attendants are professionals"
Cons: "The seats suck very little padding and on a 3 hour non stop I was feeling it right where it counts"
Pros: "love the flight"
Cons: "no complaints from me this time"
Pros: "Trip was great boarding and crew staff"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "Crew was very nice!"
Cons: "Out of almost all alcohol and snack choices...really?"
Pros: "on time and smooth flight"
Cons: "whats not to like"
Pros: "No delays"
Cons: "Seats no cushion"
Pros: "Fast boarding and upgrade to the front seats"
Cons: "One of stewardess had poor customer service skills as she yelled at me to get off the phone instead of kindly saying that phones should be put away now. We were still at the gate ."
