Pros: "Seats are comfortable, main reason I like this airline. Crew was nice."
Cons: "The screens on the back of the seats are showing their age and the controls on the armrests are causing your neighbor to change your channel or the brightness of the screen. Letting everyone stream content to their own devices would probably be a better option, with safe charging available."

Cons: "My first flight was delayed an hour due to pilot error (we left the gate on time, but sat on the tarmac for an hour). This caused me to miss my connecting flight, which stranded me at JFK because they only had one flight per day to my destination. JetBlue's customer service told me I could not reach my destination until the next day, which was unacceptable (I had a morning interview). In fact, the only thing they said they could do was *PARTIALLY* refund my ticket, even though they stranded me in a completely different city. They also said I would "be able to" book a new flight with a different carrier, which cost roughly $400, using my own money. In the end, I spent about an hour talking with customer service until they were "nice enough" to do a partial refund with an additional credit equaling the remainder of my $400 ticket to fly with them in the future. It was still a very poor interaction with customer service."

Cons: "Late boarding with little communication. Equipment failure delayed the flight after pushing from the gate. Additional delay of 10 mins one we got to the destination gate."

Cons: "When I scanned my boarding pass the Jetblue staff member told me my carry on was too big and had to be checked. This was puzzling to me because I travel often and do not have a problem with that bag. As I was sitting on the plane I saw everyone's bag's were bigger especially the man next to me. His was significantly larger and he had a large duffle bag between his legs causing him to manspread into my area. and yet i was told "make sure your purse is under the seat" seriously?! What about his giant duffle bag and huge carry on roller?!"

Cons: "Movies didn't work and we were one hour delayed on the runway."

Pros: "The only good things about this flight were: - The crew at the gate were very friendly and attentive - We arrived safely without incident"
Cons: "We were delayed 2 times before boarding. We were delayed 1 more time while on the plane. The pilot told us there was equipment trouble that had been fixed, but there was paperwork to fill out and it would only be a few minutes...and then radio silence for 30 minutes before pulling back. The flight attendants rushed through the pre-flight announcents and I could only understand about 60% of it due to speed, volume and accent. Despite asking me for my drink order, it never came...and I only heard a few soda cans pop open at all. Did they just decide not to serve us? She even gave me a napkin for it. Luckily when they put the snack basket in front of me, there was a tiny bottle of water, which I grabbed...little did I know, that was all I would get. The flight attendants were just tapping in the back of the plane the rest of the flight. They didn’t even bother collecting garbage until we were on final approach. They also never did the normal checks before landing."

Cons: "See above airport connection disaster...."

Pros: "I didnt ever purchase that ticket"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Being scammed by the Chinese, China Southern"

Pros: "The prompt transfer"
Cons: "My one piece of hard shell luggage has a special, difficult way of latching. As long as nobody opens it, it stays fine for shipping. The problem is your greedy Chinese luggage handling thieves who work for your airlines in Chinese airports. Whenever they can steal from luggage, they always try to steal from passengers, particularly American. I have had multiple experiences with theft from Chinese airports. I have been to China and back to the USA five times. Many times, items have disappeared from my suitcases in Chinese airports. That is why I decided not to move to China to live but instead move to Indonesia. However, if I fly any plane that transfers my luggage in China, I can usually expect to have my luggage robbed. Although this time, nothing was missing from my luggage, that fact that your people had to wrap my suitcase in plastic (because they did not know the secret for relatching it) and resend it a day later, that is proof that one of your airport personnel opened it to see what he could steal and then got caught because he could not close it again. I am really really really tired of you Chinese thieves. I blame all of you because you are all a product of Mao Tse Tung’s godless atheistic evil society. The Chinese have proven to me again and again that they cannot be trusted. A Kong Chinese official even stole my Ohio driver’s license when I transferred through that airport on a previous trip to Jakarta. I understand your problem. If you fire all dishonest luggage department workers, you will not have any workers remaining. That is why you will always rank as a third world backward primitive society even though you buy expensive airplanes that you don’t build and dress your people up like professionals which they aren’t. AS LONG AS Chinese airport luggage people are dishonest and cannot be trusted, your entire airline is a failure. That is not prejudice against Chinese people. I know some honest good ones. They are all Christians, the kind of good people the corrupt Chinese government hates. An atheistic country is an evil country. Do not expect to be respected by honest people. You people clearly do not deserve it. You are still in the stone age when it comes to professionalism which requires total honesty, a quality which your luggage handlers consider to be dispensable. Such cave men they are!"

Cons: "see above"

Pros: "Was good"

Pros: "Free novies"
Cons: "Food service and better social distancing"

Cons: "The flight was delayed for two hours"

Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Left late and had a middle seat"

Pros: "Seat room is limited, especially when you are in the middle seat."

Cons: "More food."

Pros: "There is nothing positive to say besides it got me where I needed to go, even though my first flight was cancelled and had to completely redirect to another airport an that took me 2 hours to get to."
Cons: "Everything, the staff was rude especially at the gate. I was forced to check my bag not because of size but because I was in Group 6 boarding and I got on there was plenty of room on the plane. I had even explained I needed to do work and would have to hold everything in my arms."

Cons: "Had to clean my seat before seating."

Cons: "The legroom is not sufficient for taller people"

Cons: "Unable to play entertainment on my compatible device."

Cons: "The terrible communication for delays and boarding."

Cons: "Feeling of being cramped"

Cons: "American Airlines cancelled this flight and then sent one of my two checked luggages to another flight to Newark from Chicago O'Hare and didn't even think to put me and the luggage I left behind on said flight? Either they should have left both and let me deal with it OR send me on a flight."

Cons: "I will never, ever book with Kayak again"

Pros: "Busy but kind stewardesses"
Cons: "Please offer another snack option besides carboard flavored pretzels."

Cons: "Pushy crowd.."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Incredibly uncomfortable. I even paid extra for more room. Meals were a joke"

Pros: "Just one of the crew (a young African American female) was pleasant the rest were mediocre."
Cons: "The wait was horrible, the boarding was delayed and the plane was hot and stuffy. Very bad first experience."

Pros: "The crew was helpful"
Cons: "We sat on the tarmac for an hour after boarding because there was some minor mechanical issue on the plane. Also, my video screen didn’t work so I had no way to access the in flight entertainment."

Pros: "Great service"

Pros: "The on-board attendants were personable and efficient."
Cons: "The lack of overhead storage was not noted at the gate so about half the passengers had to have their hand luggage tagged on the plane itself, involving wheeling to the back to be tagged. Then once everyone was seated, the attendant wheeled them by and passengers had to call out when they saw their bag go by so that they could be issued the corresponding luggage claim ticket. The seat width and pitch was sad compared to 'low cost' airlines like JetBlue."

Cons: "They left the lights on the whole flight"

Pros: "Amazing entertainment selection, comfortable."

Pros: "Almost empty in economy"
Cons: "I liked everything"

Cons: "For our delay with no information"

Pros: "Food was surprisingly good. Smooth ride could have been just good weather, but it was nice. We got in early!!!"

Pros: "Everything was on time!"

Pros: "Extra blanket and pillow. Empty seat to sleep in. Fairly clean interior for the most part."

Pros: "All good! Nice staff. Easy travel."

Cons: "The usual delays out of O'Hare. This plane was an older plane, but good enough for a medium length flight."

Cons: "Three gate changes and 45 minute delay. Same happened two years ago"

Pros: "Free alcohol and good passenger friends and friendly service."
Cons: "No outlets for phones"

Pros: "The crew was courteous and very nice."
Cons: "The aisles are too narrow. As passengers are boarding and you sit in the aisles you are constantly struck. FAA should investigate with the decreased aisle width and distance between the seats, can the evacuation be completed within required time, in an actual emergency. American Airlines is endangering the lives of passengers. And the cramped conditions are contributing to the hostile actions of some passengers. What does it take to do what is right?"

Pros: "Free checked bag"
Cons: "2 hour delay No food to buy or drinks"

Pros: "All the movies"
Cons: "Legroom"

Cons: "Could not read paper when passenger in front reclined seat. No space between rows."

Pros: "Arrived 30 min early"

Cons: "We waiting 2hours... delay Something to fixing on plane! I miss good business in Tampa because of that"

Cons: "not clean"

Cons: "Will not be using. Hidden charges doe luggage. No complimentary drinks. Filthy conditions. Will not be using frontier ever again."

Pros: "Bag charged"

Pros: "The price was extremely reasonable."
Cons: "Having to pay for drinks and snacks is not desirable."

Cons: "Couldn't move the seat back at all. Couldn't sleep."

Cons: "When checking in online the day before, I was charged just for picking a seat and also charged $30 for a carry on. Only water was provided for free on the flight."

Pros: "Crew was pleasant and the flight was empty"
Cons: "Flight was 2 1/2 hours late and I therefore missed my connection and therefore had to spend another $108 on an uber ride. Additionally I purposely booked a 3:10 flight so my baby didn't have to get off of schedule and so he can go to bleep at a reg hour. My child's stroller seat was soaking wet when we got it back. To top it off the flight still arrived 15 min later than the delayed scheduled arrival."

Pros: "The seats were comfortable enough. The departure was 40 min late, but the plane eventually landed according to the original schedule, which was nice. The price was very good, even with adding 40$ for too big carry-on."
Cons: "The attendants were talking way too much, making different announcements and explanations almost non-stop. They also organized some kind of reshuffling of people inside the plane due to the need to ... rebalance the aircraft. Never saw it at any other airline."

Cons: "Did not like all of the hidden fees. After paying baggage and seat charges the overall price was higher than other airlines."

Cons: "Flight delay on both flights. Losing luggage on return trip, not receiving it for day and a half. Paying extra for luggage, seats and nonalcoholic beverages on flights!"

Cons: "I did not completely believe their story about why we took off 1.5 hours late."

Cons: "I did not like the long delay"

Pros: "I appreciated that after you were charged for a carry-on bag you were actually put into the first boarding group. This allowed those of us with carry-on bags the opportunity to stow them."
Cons: "I didn't like all of the additional charges to get a seat assignment, to carry-on a bag, and sodas on the flight. The flight was delayed for over an hour. The group of passengers joked that it is typical to have a one hour delay on all Frontier flights. I wish I had know that going into it."

Pros: "Nothing!"
Cons: "Second time i flew with company and both times plane was delayed and both times didn't say why it was delayed. I wish I never spent the money for this airline. Now I know I will never fly with frontier every again even if they give me a free ticket DO NOT FLY WITH THIS IS COMPANY!"

Cons: "there were too many delays and the situation was handled poorly. I do not plan to fly Frontier again in the future."

Pros: "Getting where I was going"

Pros: "Cheap tickets"
Cons: "No food or entertainment"

Cons: "i wasnt able to even fly"

Pros: "Counter person said next flight he could book us on was Jan 03, 6 days later. We ended up renting a car and driving from Chicago to Philly. If there had been an ounce of concern over our condition by this worker I would feel differently, but Frontier will get no more of my familiy's business."

Pros: "NOT MUCH!"
Cons: "This was my first time using Frontier Airlines. The price and schedule met my needs. After paying $30/each way for checking my bag plus paying for a seat (would they allow me to stand?) not sure it was so good a price. The worst was when three flights came in at the same time and ALL the luggage was sent to the same area. I WAITED AN HOUR TO GET MY SUITCASE."

Pros: "We had a flight to Philadelphia we boarded on time and landed early! It was great!"

Pros: "Frontier airines was great. We got a ridiculously cheap flight so to pay $30 for a carry on was no problem. We knew all the fees up front so we planned accordingly and packed light. Staff was friendly and organized. Flight got in early."

Pros: "Really good experience"

Cons: "It was delayed and arrived 2 hours late. I had booked the flight specifically for its departure and arrival time. It was my first time flying with Frontier, and I will not fly with them again."

Cons: "Lost my luggage and people at check in were rude"

Cons: "inflight everything requires payment."

Pros: "16 November 2015 Flight # 1250 from Chicago, IL to Philadelphia, PA was delayed from 8:05 to 10:40. We were told that we were waiting for 2 connecting Pilots. Unacceptable. As a Type 1 Diabetic, I needed some Juice and repeatedly asked for Juice. After nearly 2 hours later, as my blood sugar levels were dropping I finally got some juice.Do not fly Frontier. Poor customer service. Never again"

Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Rude passengers, nothing the staff could control."

Pros: "All"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Same as above."

Pros: "אני אוצה לקבל זיכוי על כל החודשים שחייבים אותי ב 19.90 ש״ח למרות שכלל לא השתמשתי בכרטיס. מה גם שנאמר לי בשעתו בחנות שאין כלל עלות עבור הכרטיס הנ״ל. כשהתברר לי שיש עלות חודשית( לדעתי זוהי הונאה לשמה)חזרתי לחנות כדי לבטל את הכרטיס ואמרו לי שזה בלתי אפשרי. ניסיתי ליצור קשר עם cal ולא הצלחתי בשעתו. אתמול סוף סוף הצלחתי לבטל את הכרטיס ואודה לכם באם יוחזר לי התשלום החודשי אותו אתם כביתם ממני בחודשים האחרונים. לדעתי מדובר ב 4 חודשים. תודה מראש טובה ברנר ת. ז 042388421"

Pros: "I am puzzled about how can I get the receipt of the tickets. would you please tell me by email? My email is 390168576@qq.com. Thank you very much!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Longer leg room"
Cons: "Boarding was not clear . I received a notice on gate 9 but the airport shows 7. Later after staying at gate 7 for 30min at least, we were told to move to 9. Confusing to us."

Cons: "Very unsophisticated passengers"

Pros: "Flight to Chicago was great- early- arrived early- good service- no issues- I was impressed- but the way back was less than enjoyable"
Cons: "the plane was delayed to the point that when we arrived, there were no spirit staff at baggage claim, and when some luggage got stuck on the conveyor, there was no one to get us our luggage- it took an hour (at 2AM) for us to find someone to come and get our stuff for us. The man who did, did so, even though it wasn't his job- and he was very helpful- but the lack of staff and assistance left a very bad taste in our mouth toward Spirit."

Pros: "I LOVED the price and the insintives of free miles but not even complimentary coffee or soda cans! I mean THREE DOLLARS FOR A CAN OF SODA!!!"
Cons: "No free soda cans, no coffee!? What's even worse, no free water!!!??? I had to eat ice!!! I mean come on!? Cheap is great but to pay for water!? A basic human necessity!?"

Cons: "The airline did not accommodate an accident on a freeway. United, American and Delta all did."

Pros: "The price..."
Cons: "Check in and boarding...the staff looked completely miserable. Of course, the time could have been a factor. Other issues with the flight were beyond Spirit Airline's control."

Pros: "The airplane and the pilot."
Cons: "I never got to PHL via Spirit !!! I had to come up with the idea that even though the flight to ORD was so late, since the plane was continuing on to Baltimore that it would get out of ORD. I had to request to be booked on the flight to Baltimore and I had to rent a car (at quite an expense) in order to drive and complete my trip."

Pros: "I liked that the price of the flight was inexpensive."
Cons: "The crew on the flight was extremely unprofessional, suggesting that we don't "hurt one another" when we are free to take other open seats. Also, the seriousness of the crew and the responsible feeling that I normally get from a flight crew was not there. The pilot was good. But the attendants were telling " jokes". An airplane is not a comedy club. I like to feel safe, and that the staff is capable in the event of an emergency. Also, the plane seemed dirty with advertisements inside the cabin for a specific hotel in Vegas. This gave the plane a very ghetto feeling."

Pros: "Nothing. Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "Delayed flight in hour-long intervals over four hours, only to finally cancel at 1 am with no explanation. Weather was fine, no mechanical complications. We were left stranded at O'Hare at 2 am...next flight wasn't until 9 pm the NEXT night. Terribly rude attendants. Awful, pitiful excuse for an airline. This happened once before (only other time we tried to fly with Spirit, except the next flight was ONE WEEK later). Just awful. No other words for this terrible airline and laughable service."

Pros: "Everyone had a good attitude."
Cons: "They didn't let a guy move to a different seat even though the plane was less than 1/2 full."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "I found out my flight was delayed two hours but decided to go to the airport at the appropriate time anyway. It was just a girls weekend so I wasn't in any major rush to get there. As my shuttle is taking me to the airport, I look again to find that my flight has officially went from taking off at 9:14pm to taking off at 12:12pm. When I got to the airport, it was 7pm so I would have to wait for 5 hours. I went to the Spirit counter and asked what time my flight was leaving. The man at the counter says "9:15" so I responded with "okay great so there's no delay then??" He said "yeah there's just a short delay you won't even know" I showed him my phone and asked is 12:12am the time were supposed to leave? And he said "yes". Well, then I was fuming because this customer "support" person completely lied to me. Another quite rude lady said there was absolutely nothing they could do for me and shooed me away. I was also told it was because their technology wasn't reaching flight control. I went to my gate anyway and noticed that the spirit section was completely packed-I'm assuming this issue backed up many flights. After an hour of waiting, they announced that the delay may be even longer. I immediately left because at that point I wouldn't get into my destination until 4am which wasn't worth my short visit to where I was going. Later on in the night, I looked at my phone to see what happened-it ended up being cancelled!!!! What a joke! Bad customer service, bad fees, bad way of handling their flight situations!!! Never again."

Pros: "boarding was smooth"
Cons: "super tight space"

Pros: "Everything, nice service and no delays."

Pros: "I was disgrace by ur checking casher . i dont feel good about it"

Pros: "The Agent was very accommodating and pleasant. Thumbs up!!"
Cons: "The fees for luggage, toooooooo costly. The carryone should be free and pay for the check in bags. I was not a happy camper."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Cheap price"
Cons: "Extremely small seat space"

Pros: "What a great concept!"

Cons: "A lot of hidden charges."

Cons: "Horrible. You will get charged even if you blink. Seats doesn't recline. Want some water? Pay for it. While other flights allow 50lbs in your checked bag, they only give you 50lb. You pay if you check in at the airport. WHAT? You pay for a CARRY ON."

Pros: "They sould not charge for personal bag which is one bigger than their size, beside no leg room neither seat do not recalain seem got punishment for entire flight"

Cons: "This may not be a totally accurate review for this specific flight, since it never happened because it was CANCELLED. Spirit Airlines in general is a horrible airline company to deal with. Constant delays, TERRIBLE customer service, absolutely NO refund policy, and ridiculous rebooking times. My flight was cancelled due to a huge winter storm, and Spirit said they couldn't book me til FOUR days after my original fly-out date. I have never had a good experience with Spirit - cramped seating and never have been on a Spirit flight that left on time. I will never be flying with this company again."

Cons: "there is no free luggage. the luggage fee even more than the ticket."

Pros: "-In general with Spirit you know what you're getting. A cheap flight with only the bare bone necessities to get you where you're going. Generally I'm okay with this approach to save a buck or two but this experience tipped me over the edge of never flying Spirit again."
Cons: "To paint a picture before I get into details, public transit broke down so there was a huge rush of passengers for this flight and others, all leaving around the same time of night as the last round of flights from the airport. -The man at the counter said he could not print our boarding passes because the flight was already boarding as it was 30 minutes before doors closed. -We used the terminal and got an error message saying to see someone at the counter, so we went back and talked to another lady at the Spirit counter. She printed our tickets and was even able to check in my last minute checked bag. -No one at Spirit would walk us through security, which I guess is understandable (though a common courtesy on other airlines) when the security line was so long. -By this time the security line was so long after we had fumbled around for 10 extra minutes with the first man at the Spirit counter that we decided to give up. We later found out that they held the doors for 15 minutes because of the long lines at security, information which no one at Spirit ever volunteered for us, which would've allowed us to get on the plane. -There were 3 or 4 other passengers very upset at the counter employees not willing to print their boarding passes for them who could have also made the plane. -We had to get a flight out the next morning to make our international flight from BWI, so we wanted to go get the checked bag back from Spirit. This was by far the best part of the trip, as the woman at baggage was able to confirm my bag had made it on the flight and would be landing in Philadelphia. -To confirm the bag landed and we would be able to pick it up at 9am when our flight landed the next morning, we called the Spirit office at the Philly airport. The woman said to call back at 12:30-12:45 and she would let us know if she had the bag. This was important for us, because if my bag wasn't there I could just pack another for our international trip and deal with finding the lost bag at a later time. -We called 8 times between 12:30 and 1:30 with no response. We also left several voicemails. -At 5am on our way back to O'Hare we were again unable to get ahold of anyone at Spirit in Philadelphia. While boarding our flight to Philly we finally got a hold of someone who said they would go check the office and let us know within 10 minutes. Obviously too late for me to pack another bag, but at least we could plan over the next several hours. Never got a call back, and only received voice mail after attempting contact again several times as our plane prepared for takeoff. -Landed in Philly and what do you know, the Spirit office is closed for most hours of the day, only operating around their scheduled flights. The info. employee at the airport wished us good luck in a hopeless tone. After 45 minutes of panic calling every Spirit phone number we could find, we finally got someone on the phone to come get my bag out of the locked office."

Pros: "Quick boarding. On time, even early. Plenty of room on flight."

Pros: "Everything went smoothly"

Cons: "knees pressed into seat ahead"

Pros: "The low initial cost of the flight."
Cons: "The flight was announced cancelled after it was supposed to take off. Afterward the only Spirit employee just handed me a number to call. When I dialed it, it told me I should just use the online services, because the calling wait was incredibly long. When I tried to go online, it said I wasn't a member on the flight that my confirmation code was tied to. I finally waited on the phone, just to cancel my flight. Seems like they only fly a certain percentage of their flights in order to try and scam the rest of the customers into losing their money in cancelled flights..."

Cons: "E ticket didn't work after standing for 1 hour in security. This caused us to have to run around airport to our flight which was delayed 15 min after it was supposed to board. The plane was filthy. When I opened the tray table crushed chips that were in there spilled all over me. Regardless of the price I will never fly spirit airlines."

Pros: "Flight was on time for round trip big plane and I don't want more for the price and as its big plane more safer wonderful experience with spirit airline"

Cons: "Delayed"

Cons: "Fees are too much. Uncomfortable seating."

Cons: "Is the guideline about fitting a bag underneath the seat or about fitting the bag into that measurement box? My bag fit well underneath the seat, but I still had to pay $100. Why did the supervisor push me aside and take care of the man even though he came after me? Why did she let him pass even though his behavior was abusive and his bag was 1” taller than the measurement box and didn’t fit underneath the seat? Is it because I am a petite, Asian woman that the supervisor thinks that I am an easier target to mistreat?"

Pros: "The trip was good I think they did the Best"

Cons: "I don't like that they allow people with carry-ons larger than the specified sizes. I was careful to follow the guidelines, which were hard to find anyway. I don't like the credit card sales pitch on each flight."

Cons: "Always delayed"

Cons: "see above"
