I didn’t like the two hours and more of delay

Read more about Alaska Airlines

I didn’t like the two hours and more of delay

Pros: "The boarding process was simple enough"
Cons: "The flight attendants weren’t the nicest. We weren’t greeted or sent off with thank you or smiles. The airline ruined my suitcase somehow. They broke 2 of the 4 wheels."
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Tray tables very dirty, flight overbooked, hard to find gate agents"
Cons: "Flight attendants were not particularly friendly. Food had some odd textures."
Pros: "The flight was quick with food available for purchase. Seats were fine."
Cons: "The gate waiting area was very very watm"
Cons: "bus shuttle ride to plane could have been quicker. standing on a bus in the freezing cold with the doors open was a bad experience"
Pros: "Flight was just fine. Josh the flight attendant who was in charge of the main cabin handeled himself very well even while dealing with a boisterous drunk passenger. He was very professional."
Pros: "Nonstop."
Cons: "We flew to Lihue on a different airline and they provided a free meal. The attendants on that flight were more friendly, carefree and smiled more. This is the second time I flew with Alaska."
Pros: "The flight went exactly as anticipated. 30 minute departure delay due to airport construction, but arrived almost on time."
Pros: "Quick boarding and polite staff"
Cons: "Small and uncomfortable seating. Small windows with no pull down cover"
Pros: "Excellent service. I just saw a flight attendant carrying a toddler so he could be calmed while the mom settled. That was sweet!"
Pros: "I missed the flight and they got me rescheduled and on my way when I showed up at service desk just before cabin closure"
Pros: "Comfort seats"
Cons: "Not a quiet ride, sucks that I have to watch a movie on my phone. Come on"
Pros: "I had additional legroom for some reason, and 2 windows. We didn't die."
Cons: "No in flight wifi, no one asked me if I wanted to order food, the flight was really bumpy. Took forever to board."
Pros: "I'm used to being spoiled by Hawaiian Airlines. By comparison to Alaska Airlines, Hawaiian is a lot warmer with customer service, they are more efficient, they give you a free meal for trans-pacific flights, and they give you a screen or full entertainment system (depending on what kind of airplane you get). Alaska Airlines, by contrast, is a lot more bare-bones. I hardly had any contact with the flight attendants (when I did, they were nice enough I suppose), there was no food on the flight unless you paid a good penny for it, the seats were pretty average, and there was nothing really to watch (not even a common screen for movies, and this was a trans-pacific flight). You had to order their entertainment iPads. So I pretty much slept. That said, both Alaska and Hawaiian have good prices. Alaska had better options for departure and arrival times."
Cons: "The bare bones aspect (see other side)."
Pros: "Alaska Airlines is great!!!"
Pros: "Extremely competent and professional attendants who gave us some additional perks."
Cons: "Food was meh..."
Pros: "Book the flight with Kayak never let us pick the seat and I’m not be able to sit with my husband! That the worse next time I’ll just book directly to the Airline website."
Pros: "The flight was less than 1,5 hours, which is 30 minutes less than estimated. Staff was great!"
Cons: "All was great"
Pros: "Free Maitai on arrival, on time departure and landing, friendly crew, decent food. Big overhead bins also a plus."
Pros: "Great flight crew"
Cons: "Nothing to dislike"
Pros: "All the staff was friendly and did the best they could"
Cons: "Had the last seets in row 32 Very uncomfortable. Was not given anything to drink for over an hour. When the meal trays reached us in the last row of seats, no more hot meals available..... We were by the bathrooms in the back of the plane. Every time someone use the bathroom the doors kept slamming and there was really no peace to close your eyes or sleep if needed on the long trip Very disappointed. Jerry"
Cons: "They overcharged me for my beer by $9 and I didn't notice until I got home when I looked at my billing statement."
Cons: "the airline attendant poured wine all over my suit jacket. i am traveling on a quick business trip and only brought this one suit jacket, which has been doused w/wine and smells disgusting. this was after i saw him douse another passenger w/water. i wish it was water he spilled on me!"
Pros: "Ease and great service"
Cons: "No good available very No entertainment"
Pros: "I had a problem with my ticket, and before my flight the information desk helped me get it resolved very quickly with none of the hassles I have come to expect flying other airlines. Huge relief!"
Pros: "Always nice people. Boarding was slow due to tech failure but gate agents were resourceful and pleasant about it"
Pros: "1) Attendant crew was nice. 2) Appreciated being able to board from front and rear."
Cons: "1) Flight time delayed, so late arrival ~12am was made even later ~12:30am 2) Booked two tickets together months ago, yet we were not allowed to sit together. 3) Entertainment required the downloading of the gogo app which should have been done on the ground with wifi and/or cellular data. in the air, one window said you could (wait) and download, while another window effectively said, "better luck next time". Pre-flight email should have warned passengers to download beforehand. 4) Exiting plane only allowed from front; took forever from our next-to-last row."
Cons: "The flight was overbooked. We changed gates at the last minute and we weren't confirmed until after other passengers had boarded. Flight was delayed an hour because of this."
Pros: "What a pleasure to fly with Alaska Airlines. Have yet to feel like I was an imposition with traveling with AA. Thanks for letting me feel like a client rather than a bother. Virgin Air and AA will be a happy merge, I believe. Keep your work ethic and soar even higher!"
Cons: "Not a thing. 15E and 15F even!"
Pros: "It was great. I slept nearly the entire time. No one bothered me!"
Pros: "The pilot was very polite"
Cons: "Gate staff we're rude seemed bothered when asked for assistance or info"
Pros: "Wonderfully attentive staff with Alaskan that made my trip very enjoyable."
Pros: "Very friendly service staff that seemed to genuinely enjoy their jobs. Free wine and beer on the flight. Very pleasant experience."
Pros: "Extra leg room was well worth the upgrade. Flight was better than on time, leaving 10 min. early (well organized) and arriving 45 min. early due to favorable weather."
Cons: "Snack was meh and not really filling, paid extra choices were not appealing either - bring your own food if you have any dietary issues."
Pros: "Great staff. Friendly and efficient. The best I've experienced in my recent travels. A+."
Pros: "The crew on both flights were very nice!"
Cons: "On first leg of trip my suitcase came off the plane with a very large dent! On return flight my 2nd suitcase came off the plane missing one wheel! I have a back injury and it's very difficult to drag a suitcase around without a wheel. So now I have two broken suitcases!!!!"
Pros: "It was a smooth flight with very accommodating flight attendants. It couldn't have been any better."
Cons: "part of leg space is used up by the airplane. Guess you can't really change that, but it was uncomfortable"
Pros: "Crews on board amazing. They are friendly, yet professional."
Cons: "Got no seat assigned at check in. She told us to get seat assigned at gate. Weird. We got boarding passes after other people already boarded. I thought I flew South West. Flight 30 mins delayed. Hot food sold out."
Pros: "The flight offered was a direct flight. They offer preboarding for families with children under 2."
Cons: "The seats on this flight are so close together your shoulders literally touch your neighbors shoulders while sitting normally in your seat. This is unacceptable. When will airlines finally get it? People deserve to sit in their own seat without being on top of their neighbor."
Pros: "POG was available from the beverage cart. On-time departure and arrival."
Cons: "We were assigned two middle seats in different rows for a five hour flight! Flight attendants were rude. The bathrooms were a mess. Complimentary food for a five hour flight is a bag with nine, dime-sized pretzels."
Pros: "Overall as expected. Decent flight, nothing that made me go "wow", but on time, clean, reasonable boarding."
Cons: "I found the reaction of one of the flight attendants to be unprofessional. When I asked if she could pour a bit of water into my water bottle, rather than say, "I'm sorry, I am not allowed" or "unfortunately, no" or really anything verbal, she made a "tsk, tsk" face and offered me a plastic cup. Besides being annoyingly wasteful as a policy (if indeed it is one - this has not been an issue on other airlines), her customer service skills left something to be desired. This strange interaction left me with a poor overall impression of the flight experience."
Pros: "Ticket agent kindly arranged for us to sit together - after we had been assigned seats apart from one another."
Cons: "Boarding was delayed, disorganized and chaotic. Flight crew seemed to be overwhelmed and scattered. Ran out of hot meal about halfway through aircraft. When I expressed my disappointment, the F.A. said that there were a lot of wrestlers on board and they got all the food. I commented that it was poor planning and the FA stated that he didn't think anything would please me. He was argumentative and rude, IMO. He could have handled it better, eg: "So sorry. Out of our control, etc." To say that the food went to the wrestlers, and attitude gave me and those around me, the impression that he really didn't give a damn. Customer service training would be a good idea."
Pros: "The flig t had a delayed departure so I was given a voucher for $12 to get something to eat. In this day and age I thought that was very thoughtful. Also a representative handed each passenger a chit with instructions for a discount on a future flight. Again a thought act instead of a flat response!"
Cons: "Lack of space between passengers."
Pros: "I was pleased that the crew was helping to get everyone on board and settled quickly. The plane was on time which everyone appreciates."
Pros: "To be able to upgrade, charging stations at my seat, generous beverages"
Cons: "No free baggage, unclear coomunication about check in and choosing seats, was not offered my free drink."
Pros: "I like the hospitality from the crew members and how smooth my travel experience was."
Cons: "No complaints"
Cons: "TSA was unprofessional, slow, and as usual pointless."
Pros: "The staff"
Cons: "Seats are like hard plastic cop car chairs. Stale pretzel and drinks that were so shaken up when I opened it it sprayed me and the lady next to me. Long boarding times and again....my back is gonna be messed up for a while from the seats"
Cons: "The wheel to my luggage broke off in deltas care so if that could have not happened it would have been way better."
Pros: "I appreciate the care Delta has for their passengers during this pandemic. From the seat spacing to the boarding process great measures were taken."
Pros: "Due to COVID 19 we got a 737-800 on a route that usually boasts nothing better than a 717 so everything about this flight was superior to normal runs."
Cons: "I wish DL could find a way to better manage food and drinks during the COVID 19 restrictive era."
Pros: "Super crew. Reasonably good food. Liked how safety conscious crew was."
Cons: "Nothing. Great job everyone"
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Wonderful"
Cons: "More leg room and seat width. I don’t like having other passengers pressed against me."
Cons: "The intercom was turned up too loud."

Cons: "Left 30 minutes late from SLC."
Pros: "The crew at the airport was very courteous and helpful."
Cons: "No food; not even offered water; I asked a Delta employee about our seats and she was very unprofessional (mind you I'm traveling with kids and my boarding pass said that seats were to be assigned at the gate)."
Pros: "I can’t make it in mexico city on tuesday, wednesday’s performance had to be cancelled and we need to pay the cancellation fee 11500 mexican pesos, please reimburse on the credit card"
Cons: "I can’t make it in mexico city on tuesday, wednesday’s performance had to be cancelled and we need to pay the cancellation fee 11500 mexican pesos of the studio and musicians"
Pros: "Everything in 1 class"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "The monitors kept on freezing"
Pros: "Was switched to United airlines by delta due to plane issues. Houston to Laf"
Pros: "Everyone was fairly friendly"
Cons: "Cramped foot room"
Cons: "Due to the earthquakes, the film festival I was going to was cancelled. Ten days prior to the flight I called AeroMexico to cancel and they said there would be a cancellation penalty, which was fine. When I tried to redeem my credit, they said there was also an additional "No-show fee" even though I called to cancel 10 days prior, which left a total of $70 credit after all their penalties. I called and emailed to complain but they did nothing but pass me to someone else who was equally unhelpful. I will never fly AeroMexico for any reason in the future."

Cons: "1hour delay from departing LAX runway - not good"
Pros: "I could be wrong, but the seats were very comfortable (for a plane) and I felt my knees weren't as close to the seat in front of me than other airlines. So that's a plus."

Cons: "Shorter flight so no snacks/drinks were served, although requests were fulfilled."

Cons: "Boarded 20 minutes late. Very very cold. Bathroom horribly disgusting. Coffee too cold."
Pros: "Delta does a great job overall. We used free skymiles from Amex and it was very much appreciated."
Cons: "Not enough leg room! BS!"
Pros: "First we had a mechanical after boarding. I was rerouted through Atlanta. That flight is now delayed by 2hours. I then had to reroute to West Palm Beach instead of Ft Lauderdale. I will leave 9 hours after my original flight time and arrive 8 hours later. Just ridiculous"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "We barely got on the flight."
Cons: "The boarding "red shirt" saved us. We are a band on tour and thanks to her we made the gig"
Pros: "Left reasonably on time, arrived a bit early, able to find overhead storage for my roll-on, even boarding in Zone 3"
Cons: "Very tightly packed; minimal comfort for the flight."
Pros: "The Delta crew was super corteous to my friend and I even when we arrived to the airport a bit late. They were friendly and went the extra mile to get our bags on our plan and on their way to the US. They checked us in quickly and ensured that we would make our flight. Can't thank them enough"
Pros: "absolutely nothing"
Cons: "no food while waiting flight cancelled and no vendors open in the airport, stood in line for 4 hours only to be told no flights available, wasn't asked if they could feed me, put me up in a hotel, absolutely no compensation for me not being able to see my son graduate in the Air Force."
Pros: "Entertainment options"
Pros: "We were on time!!!!"
Cons: "I've had friendlier flight attendants"
Pros: "That it ended!"
Cons: "5 hours in the air. Not the fault of Delta."
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that I didn't get my luggage with me when I arrived to casablanca as I lived 4 hours away from the casablanca. I have to come back the next day to get my luggage. I was very mad about it.plus I noticed one of my luggage has been damaged so now I have to buy another one because I can t use it. It was disgusting."
Pros: "Had a decent seat other than I was in the back corner of the aircraft."
Cons: "Took too long to get to seat."
Pros: "Our flight was cancelled and we had to buy $447 worth of Southwest tickets to get home. Our luggage is still missing, by the way."
Pros: "The flight crew was nice and polite. They served drinks and snacks in a timely manner while on the flight."
Cons: "Flight was scheduled to leave early, the plane arrived, but they couldn't turn the plane around fast enough. We left the gat late, then pilot said we would still be arriving half an hour early. We arrived about 45 minutes late, and that was a problem because our connecting flight was due to depart now in 15 minutes. Lightning forced the airport to shutdown, which was great, we had a chance to catch our flight, but we were stuck in the airplane, and we couldn't get to our gate until the all-clear. I know this is not Delta's fault, but they did arrive quite late on a flight that, according to them, would be early. They also never communicated to the other flight that there were several passengers catching that connection. So by the time we had ran to catch our connection they had closed the ramp. Lightning hit again, and they shutdown the airport once again, so the airplane was still at the gate for about an hour, and they did not allow the 20+ passengers to board that plane, which was right there. So frustrating. The only thing that saved it was that our new flight was the new airbus, and although it left an hour and a half later, the comfort level was phenomenal."
Cons: "Plane was late. Took forever to inboard since they didn't prepare for a handicapped flyer. The plane sat on the runway and taxied for over an hour and the flight crew never gave any updates to the passengers."
Pros: "Delayed by 55 minutes in 10 or 20 minute increments as they waited for a crew."
Pros: "Comfortable-love the 2 seats!"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Boarding was efficient and easy. For the first time on any airline, the crew was over-the-top friendly and my special meal request was excellent."
Pros: "Stewart was excellent"
Cons: "Delta has inconsistent baggage charges. I had to pay $40 for a checked bag. WAY too much."

Nothing

Pros: "No"
Cons: "Letting me know from the beginning that I need to scan some stupid code that is not necessary I waste a lot of time trying to scan the code and I couldn't to finally an employee give me a form to put what all ready was written"
Cons: "people completely ignore social distancing when boarding and deplaning. Not enough emphasis is made on this."
Pros: "easy boarding, great crew(though very tired), seats were finally comfortable, not like sitting on wood"
Cons: "best flight ever with volaris!!!!"
Pros: "Flight attendants were friendly But people at checking in are really mean. Nasty people you should get another people with better trainings, etc. They were asking personal questions and abusing just because of their power. Not good at all, one on the worst experience"
Cons: "Personal at checking in. They have the worst attitude ever"
Pros: "Crew was amazing. Felt safe from check 8n to arrival"
Cons: "Second flight that was not on time. Seat was a bit uncomfortable."
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "More comfortable seats"
Pros: "The crew were fantastic and the seats were comfortable."
Cons: "Leg space was a bit tight for a tall person so if you can get an exit row do it."
Cons: "Everything needs to change! Worst airline worst service rude people. Horrific experience wish I got my money back."
Pros: "Todo esta bien"
Cons: "Connecting flight was a nightmare. Airline did not accepted electronic boarding pass. They made me make a 1 hr. line to get a paper one. Couple of passengers and I almost lost flight. Volariis counter staff did not provided nor informed a paper boarding pass was needed to fly internationally when I told them I was traveling to Dallas."
Pros: "I only chose this flight because it is direct to Guadalajara."
Cons: "Let me pay for my bags ahead of time. Seats are the smallest in the industry. Hurt my knees when the person in front of my moved. Charging money for everything isn't worth the money. My money is in my bag. The little bit of revenue you get from these sales isn't worth the lack of good will and discomfort given to the passengers."
Pros: "Got me from point a to point b"
Cons: "Crew informing passengers better, being reimbursed for seats i paid for but couldn't sit in because of a plane change"
Cons: "The flights took off over an hour late. The seats were incredibly uncomfortable and didn’t recline., even ven a little bit. I am 5’6” and my knees touched the seat in front of me."
Pros: "Affordability, that's about all that is good with Volaris. Everything else is either bad or mediocre."
Cons: "Don't board passengers onto the aircraft until it is ready for passengers. Both direction (OAK to MEX and MEX to OAK), we were boarded onto a hot (not aconditioned) aircraft for at least 15 minutes before the A/C is turned on. In addition, boarding were completed and all passengers were sitting in the aircraft for over an hour before it started the taxis to the run way....why board passengers so early? At least turn on the A/C and let the cabin cool down before boarding passengers."
Pros: "It was ok."
Cons: "It was ok."
Cons: "Free snacks and beverages"
Cons: "El equipaje tardó mucho en salir"
Cons: "Everything went well."
Cons: "Late and slow boarding, last minute gate change"
Pros: "NOTHING"
Cons: "I didn’t even get a chance to take the flight. I realized my flight was for 12am the day I was supposed to leave within 2 hours of departure. I asked if I could get another flight was told no! I couldn’t even get a credit since I didn’t call within 3 hours of departure. I would not recommend!!!"
Cons: "The check in process was a disaster. It took me more than 90 minutes to check my bag. I arrived 2.5 hours before my flight and almost did not make it in time to board, which seems unacceptable."
Pros: "Ok"
Cons: "This fly was pretty good!"
Cons: "Never booking with this airline again."
Pros: "Getting my boarding pass was a hazel and the flight was delayed about an hour and a half. Seats were extremely uncomfortable and they practically didn't recline. Everything on board was sold and nothing was offered complimentary not even a cup of water."
Cons: "What could be improved is, being on time. The seats could also be a more comfortable with a bit more legroom, room to recline, and space between people. Seats felt like I was sitting on the other person's lap. A small drink should be complementary."
Pros: "Excellent customer care and great customer service."
Cons: "Too many people using the restroom. Maybe you might suggest passengers to use the airport restroom facilities before boarding the plane. In my opinion, there was too much people activity for the restroom during the flight."
Pros: "The flight was punctual."
Cons: "The crew was to loud and annoying. I got a window seat without a window and was not notified (Seat 30F). If there was mention of no window seat I would have purchased a window seat."
Pros: "One of the worst experience I’ve had."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed for 3 hours! Completely ruined out plans."
Pros: "Nothing"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful"
Cons: "The seats were very uncomfortable, the boarding was confusing and took a long time."
Pros: "Right on time. No frills. What you want in a 70 dollar flight"
Cons: "All good."
Cons: "Will never fly with this airline, volaris charged me $60.00 for normal check in bag."
Pros: "Nothing to like. Crew was unprofessional, rude, and no comfort in the flight."
Cons: "Everything could be better. At least offer compliments coffee/sodas instead of charging for every little thing."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Luggage delayed at least two hours. Waiting for it still! This is nuts."
Pros: "The crew was helpful and professional. The plane was clean and orderly."
Cons: "The flight was VERY late (about 4 hours late) with no reconciliation for the massive tardiness"
Cons: "It was 1 hour delayed"
Pros: "Very Smooth trip. Excellent service. A little late on departure."
Pros: "Bad"
Cons: "No comments"
Cons: "Excelente"
Pros: "Very nice crew"
Cons: "Departure 35 minutes late."
Pros: "That the plane landed. Attendants were friendly and followed protocol."
Cons: "Seat felt like a public bus seat. Charged for water but I was surprise that there was no charge for toilet use. Volaris gets you to destination but charges $60 to check-in luggage. Carry on must way less than 10kg (my purse was weighed with suitcase so I was over). No movie or music."
Cons: "Only snack options during my flight, was hoping to buy a meal."
Cons: "Everything was the worst experience ever"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: ", change in departure time, hurried boarding, crew with long facesrude kids all over"
Pros: "Enogh room to move to an extra seat"
Cons: "Flight attendent was sassy"
Pros: "Flight got dekayed, staff neber smiled, rude!!! And i have neber felt such tublences in my life time. Flight attebdants did not bother to say thank you or one smile but talk to others of their own i find it rude!!!! I asked fkr water, brought to me 10 min late and was not cold or fresh in a plastic cup???"
Pros: "Punctuality, friendly flight crew"
Cons: "Boarding was an unorganized free-for-all"
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "My luggage was opened and electronic items / gifts were stolen. I am upset because customer service never answered to resolve the problem."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Bad service"

The staff is very nice.

3.5 hours late and took 40 minutes to get to gate after landing. Frontier is a mess.

Leave on time and not wait for 40 minutes to be unloaded. Also I was throwing up for most of the flight but unless I wanted to call the paramedics, I was to stay in my seat.

Pros: "Cost of flight."
Cons: "The seats in a A320/321 are not adjustable. A much longer flight then a couple of hours would be tuff."
Pros: "The crew. Clean Plane."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable chairs."
Pros: "Well, I got there safely."
Cons: "The seats, having to pay for seats, having to pay for a drink, 45 minutes wait for bags, etc"
Pros: "The prices"
Cons: "Paying for a carry on Seats do not recline No complimentary beverages Flight was delayed and we rarely received updates I understand that you charge for everything in order to offer better prices, but by the time the customer pays to bring on luggage, we are paying the same price as an airline that allows baggage for free with inclusive drinks, snacks and seats that recline."
Pros: "Getting off the plane."
Cons: "Missed my flight because lack of people to check people in. So slow. Waited 25 minutes. Figured I missed my flight since the board said on time. It was 2:25. Asked if I could get on 7:30 flight. Took computer 10 minutes for her to see and book. As I left, she said the 2:30 was still boarding. I said, oh, do you think I could still make it? She said the plane was still loading and running a bit late, but impossible to get on because I was booked on the 7:30 flight. I will probably not fly Frontier again. 4 hours later and $50 dollars in the hole for food and drink sitting here dreading my middle seat and no room to move for 2 hours. Then, have to pay for a Lyft to get to my car because my cousin was my ride back to her house. I sure do miss the old Frontier."
Pros: "Very cheap"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable no elbow room or leg room and the chairs are hard."
Pros: "It was exceptionally smooth and affordable. Very impressed with what you're doing, Frontier."
Cons: "It was flawless this time. No kidding."
Pros: "The staff that handled baggage was nice. Also, I liked that we made it safe."
Cons: "My flight was supposed to leave at 3:50...I got to the airport and went through security before I found out that my flight was delayed until 7:30. The flight kept getting pushed back. I waited 8 hours before the flight took off. There no outlets anywhere...leaving customers at a disadvantage because with our delay, our electronics were all almost dead or dead. There were no food options. We were supposed to get a voucher, and I have not received it. Lastly, after waiting over 8 HOuRS, we still had to pay for snack and drink. I was ripped off and will not be flying with Frontier again."
Pros: "Finally landing!"
Cons: "It felt like the rear end was going to come off the way it swayed after take off. The commode messed up causing a stench in the back of the plane, (where I was). The ride was very bumpy and the pilot intercom was hard to understand. We got delayed taking off and landing."
Pros: "On time, boarding was efficient. crews were good."
Cons: "No free stuff, not even water or magazine!"
Cons: "Canceled my flight eight hours before "supposed" weather even hit and had no other flights to put me on. Ended up having to cancel my entire weekend trip. Customer service was not friendly or apologetic!"
Cons: "How is it acceptable to place someone who is highly allergic to dogs right next to a lady with a service dog on the flight? I spent 25 bucks to upgrade my seat to avoid the nuisances of an everyday flight. I didn't think I'd be stuck next to an animal. How is it acceptable to not disclose that I'd be stuck next to a service dog? I was miserable the entire 2.5 hour flight back to denverz I am extremely irritated."
Pros: "2 hour wait for baggage check in. Then an additional 6 hour wait for flight, only to find out it was cancelled non weather related. Terrible airline. Kayak should not be associated."
Pros: "Quick, reasonably comfortable flight, however....."
Cons: "This was the 12:30am red-eye from Las Vegas to St. Louis. Flight was delayed until 2:20am. Fine, flights get delayed all the time. It is worse when everything in the airport to kill time is shut down, but I digress. Then the plane comes in around 2am, everyone on the flight gets off, then the announcement comes that they don't have a crew for our flight now, and we will have to wait until 9am for the next flight. Whoopsies! This is no longer a delay -- this is a major F-up by Frontier that affected dozens of already very weary customers (the staff admitted to it being a flub). Once boarded, people complained, as you'd expect, and one stewardess responded "Well, you can pay $400 with somebody else, or pay under $100 here." THAT was your response?? She was stating a fact, I realize this, but that was the wrong answer at the wrong time, lady. I know you get what you pay for, but my expectations don't go completely out the window. And don't be proud to be a F-up airline that merely exists on its price point. It's one thing to be one, it's another thing to wave a flag about it. And the cherry on top is what Frontier did to make it right. Another steward on the plane explained how rare this phenomenon is that we just experienced. Well if it really is rare, and inconveniences their customers to this degree, you would expect them to take strong measures to make it right, no? Any restaurant would, a car rental would, etc, if it was such a rare mistake. What did Frontier do? $7 breakfast voucher. Just punch us in the face next time. There are people that have powered through your barely-existent customer service, and those "gotcha" fees that first-time customers run into (at least Frontier hopes they do), and still liked your airline. Then you go and do something to drive even us loyals away. All you had to do was do what airlines run by thoughtful human beings do and issue flight vouchers during this rare mistake, and it would have been a microscopic write-off. Instead -- face punch, and "justification" behind it of all things. Unreal Frontier, even for you."
Pros: "The price and and the ease of connections was great,"
Cons: "The layovers of over 6 hours were not great and the flights back home were both delayed, but not much."
Pros: "We landed safely"
Cons: "The flight crew was atrocious. They were rude when they spoke to us and when I asked for refreshments they turned around as if to get them for me and then the lady sitting next to my husband had to get their attention again to ask a second time if I could have water and Chex Mix so I could take my medicine. I have serious health conditions and I couldn't even get water without paying $3 a bottle. It is disgusting to me that we are charged for flight and then charged for Refreshments during that flight. Any other Airline who charges for a seat to take you to your destination includes at least drinks and nuts for free but not you."
Cons: "I don't like that you have to pay for seats and bags. I think the least that the airlines can do is free sodas and a simple snack, like the other airlines do."
Pros: "Kind, helpful, clean, friendly."
Cons: "I'm small and I still think there's just not quite enough room for each passenger spot. Sure, you can buy a seat with more room, but everyone can't. There's just not enough seats that give enough butt and leg room."
Cons: "Fronteir created new seats that do not recline, are quite thin and small tray tables that don't lock. The consequence is that the man next to me couldn't lean back enough, so slumped onto me most of the flight. A one year old behind me constantly pulled up and down the unmatchable tray table and kicked my thin chair -- so I felt every little tiny foot. The stewardess refused to give us water when our row asked and they forgot to call boarding zone 2 when boarding so it was a mess. I would say Frontier was a terrible airline. Their discounted prices are a farce as they charge for a seat and carry-on luggage, so I may as well have paid for a regular fare from a more comfortable airline."
Pros: "Read a lot of bad reviews and was a bit nervous, but the plane was so nice, people were nice and the flight was great. For the price i couldnt be happier. Just make sure you check your baggage online. Carry ons cost extra also."
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Frontier has a ton of hidden fees...including no free drinks/snacks on the flight, fee for carry-ons. Seats do not recline so you're stuck in 1 position the whole flight. Tray tables were the same size as an iphone."
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable and don't recline. No complimentary beverage or snack. Late leaving."
Cons: "The flight was delayed a few hours. It took forever to Get out of the gate. It took an hour once we landed to get in the gate and deplane. I was given a seat on the computer and then when I got on the plane there were two people with same seat. The floors and seats were unbelievably dirty as well. I have never seen so much trash and crumbs everywhere. It was an awful experience. Our trip to Vegas the first night was ruined because we were planning to see a show Thursday evening and landed two hours late and could have possibly made it but we sat on runway for an hour before deplaning."
Pros: "I like and it went good with no problems."
Cons: "The baggage Claim which I didn't know each baggage claim have each groups of what the name that you flying out which no one told me about that so its new to me ."
Pros: "Nothing will not recommend them"
Cons: "The price quoted did not include their fees for a carry on - $30 both ways! Feels unethical."
Cons: "The only attention from flight attendants was to solicit me for something to buy. They were reluctant to provide even a glass of water but did provide it but not courteously."
Pros: "the crew made the best of a miserable corporate policy; the baggage arrived - 45 minutes after landing."
Cons: "2.0 hours late boarding; boarded 2x; lousy information; surly condescending station manager; insane baggage counter hours; no connection information in flight despite airline full responsibility for everyone on the plane being behind schedule.; connecting flight still at gate when 10 people tried to board and were not given access until a near riot occurred; no one seemed care at all. A woman with 5 week old child, a senior citizen with a cane, a woman recovering form surgery all RAN from gate to the other (about 1/2 miles) only to be told they were too late, the terminal door was closed. Only after pounding on the door, cajoling the customer service people 10 feet away and telling 50 others waiting in the service area did the door open!"
Pros: "The boarding process was easy and organized. They were also on time."
Cons: "They charge for everything. I pre checked my bag at a cost of $70. If I had waited to do it at the airport it would have been $90."
Cons: "Bag fee, carry on fee, pick seat fee, were bad.enough, but 11.00 for 2 sodas and snacks,, then asking for a tip was too much. Will pay more for any other airline."
Pros: "Plane was clean. Seats were very comfortable l, but not much leg room"
Cons: "They charge for for everything on this flight. Checking in - it cost $35 to check your bag in - $40 of you want to board with it! I do all the work and I have to pay more? Then to pick a seat - any seat - it is another $5 - $25. I understand that for premium seating (ext, etc) but any seat? Finally - drinks and snacks - that costs money too. While the fare looks cheap - beware of all the add ons. At a minimum, you have an additional $70 to $100 to the price of the ticket This does not turn out to be a cheaper price....beware."
Pros: "First time flying, and had a great experience. I made a mistake when ordering tickets online and when I called in to fix the problem they corrected my mistake and bumped me up to first class at no charge."
Cons: "Nothing everything went smoothly."
Pros: "Pricing was excellent."
Cons: "Seats were not very comfortable."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable...the air conditioning cool when loading and during flight."
Cons: "There was not a gracious word spoken about the inconvenience of the 2 hour delay. I have flown many other airlines and this was appalling. Not a thank you for flying with Frontier either. Probably will not choose this airline ever again."
Pros: "The seats on the plane were very comfortable. That's about it"
Cons: "I was not aware you have to pay for bags on Frontier airlines, carry-on and checked. You have to pay for any beverages, non-alcoholic, and snacks should you want anything during the flight. They do not participate in the global traveler/TSA/Known Traveler program so if you are apart of this program, beware. I was lifting my carry-on into the overhead and although it was a smaller bag I had some difficulty (I'm 5'4" and 114lbs) and the flight attendant just stood and watched me as I struggled twice to get my luggage into the bin. I did after the second attempt, with no help from her. I used to fly Frontier years ago back and forth to the Pacific Northwest. This was a trip from Stl to Atl. Never again will I fly this airline."
Cons: "The worst thing was having to sit on the tarmac for over an hour. This was after a very bumpy landing and having to pay for carry tons is ridiculous"
Pros: "I like thevery timely boarding and my flight itself was good."
Cons: "Didn't like that I had to to put for coffee heck that I had to pay $40 for a carry-on. The tickets for that flight when I bought it was only a few dollars cheaper than delta. Of I wouldve known they charged for everything I would have went with another flight. Despite the extra fee it was ok"
Cons: "My flight got delayed 6hours and it was to leave at 2:37 in the morning and instead I wanted to just get the flight the next day but they still charged me $100, nor did they offer to put me in a hotel I paid for that too."
Pros: "The flight, the crew, the updates from the airline and Kayak was great. Frontier is a great company and very affordable."
Cons: "The airline increased the bag fees for the summer without an obvious communication. Very unfair and un professional from such a company. I paid $10 extra than 5 days before. The only problem with Frontier is that to check in bags there is only 1 maybe 2 people taking bags for full planes at least 100+ passengers. As it is cheaper and better to check in bags than carry on the airline should make this proccess more efficient. I spend at least 20-30 minutes to check my bag each wat ok my last trip. Very unefficient!"
Pros: "The Staff was friendly"
Cons: "the flight was only cheaper until you had to either check a bag or pay to carry on! Pay to drink a soda or anything! The seats are the most stripped down uncomfortable airline seats I have ever experienced. After all the add on costs, there is no value in the cramped, crowded, uncomfortable flight. Also, on every flight at least half of the passengers were not aware of the baggage policy until it was too late to check it for less money and had to pay extra to carry on. To top it off, we had to change gates at the last minute, resulting in having to go out of the Domestic terminal and sent us all back through the check in!!! We should have at least been able to fly through the pre check if not rerouted us through another way that did not require the total shoes off, open bags, metal detection all over again!!!"
Cons: "My luggage was misplaced on the plane and I waited for an hour for it and it went to the wrong section. I paid two dollars for a soda. St. Louis frontier desk is not open from 930-3pm which is crazy ridiculous. Also your plans are extremely uncomfortable and have become just like military planes. $30 for a carry on is excessive and $25 for a checked back? Absolutely not. I will not fly frontier again."
Cons: "The flight was delayed and the airline charges for everything. They tried to charge me for my CARRYON bag which is hilarious, and I proceeded to say I would not pay that charge. The attendant let me board the plane anyway and I put my carryon in the overhead without an issue, which deeply concerns me. It seems as if Frontier arbitrarily tacks on that charge, tricking their customers like con artists who will fall for this absurdity. The air conditioning did not work well and they almost forgot to give us water. Maybe they even charged for the water. The attendants were rude. Dont fly Frontier unless you really really really need to save a dime or two."
Pros: "...the ticket agent who got me checked and put me through priority TSA so I could make my flight!"
Cons: "The assistance of a front counter agent was horrible and made inappropriate comments to me due to me being late to my flight which was due to a faulty shuttle and short staffed rental service as if I was aware of airline policy! Even though I wanted to avoid all of lines to check in (only carry on bag) but all kiosk where out of service which why the lines where so long...the snide remarks and rude comments were not appreciated especially in front of other patrons, thank God another agent to assist me after the line agent moved me another customer up due to our flights."
Pros: "On time unlike all the other airlines and very reasonably priced."
Cons: "I'm very tall with long legs. So I was a little cramped but, for the price I made dew. Frontier's price was a fourth or less than the other airlines with a staight flight nonstop."
Cons: "It costs to carry on a bag on Frontier. When booking the flight we were looking for a reasonable price which we found with frontier, not reading the fine print they charged us for carry on bags. We ended up checking bags which cost us another $140. Along with this frustration, the seats are horribly uncomfortable and the amount of leg room is ridiculous. I understand maximizing out seats but this was way over the top. I will not be flying Frontier again"
Pros: "I felt safe throughout the whole trip; the landing was on if the smoothest landings I've felt ever. Frontier is the only airline I have taken."
Cons: "n/a"
Pros: "Flight was on time. Crew was very professional."
Cons: "Charge for seats, stowed baggage and food/drinks negated competitive air fare cost of other carriers. Will not use Frontier again! Wheel chair attendant and wheel chair were not available in Orlando when we arrived."
Cons: "The flight may be inexpensive, but the add on costs to book a seat and carry on a bag were ridiculous. Also, I didn't like that there wasn't a complimentary food or drink item. The line to check my bag was also extremely long and slow and they should have had more staff working."
Pros: "Safe flight."
Cons: "Cramped seating, small food trays and no entertainment"
Pros: "No fanfare, no hassle."
Pros: "Great price and friendly employees"
Cons: "Pull down Tray is too small, almost worthless. No in flight entertainment, no WIFI."
Pros: "Flight on time. Crew very friendly and fun. I knew what to expect."
Cons: "I'm a grandma but have reasonably decent tech skills. I find Spirit's website a little difficult to maneuver in. I think they are trying to be too "cute" and have lost a little intuitiveness."
Pros: "Just great! Pay for things you need only."
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Departed on time; arrived on time"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats; no storage pocket; insufficient tray table"
Cons: "Customer unfriendly"
Cons: "I've read bad reviews about Spirit airlines, but I was on a budget and decided to take my chances. It was a very small plane, which meant tight quarters during a 4.5 hour flight. I have a disability and deal with chronic pain and usually need to carefully plan out long flights so I arrive with minimal pain, but the seats were very small and moving about the back cabin was impossible. When I asked for a wheelchair I wasn't granted my request right away because I was told I didn't register online. I've always requested a wheelchair when I check in with major airlines when I arrive and have never been given a problem. Also, I didn't realize checking baggage would cost so much! No wifi available a very turbulent flight and they even charge for water. It wasn't the most horrible experience, but if we pay for a cheap ticket, expect substandard service. This will definitely will be my last time with Spirit Airlines."
Pros: "The airline crew was great and friendly"
Cons: "We got the seats in the last row and couldn't recline them. Didn't have anywhere to charge my device. No app was provided for entertainment neither was there screens for our 4 hour plus flight."
Pros: "Of the 6 flights I took with Spirit on this trip, this was the only one where they boarded the flight in a timely and organized manner by using the zones printed on the boarding passes."
Cons: "Our flight was pushed back three times, we were given little to no information and the airline customer support staff were short-tempered. Waited over four hours to board our intial flight, since we were waiting on one crew member. Very uncomfortable and tense experience."
Cons: "Took more than 3 hours to rebook the flight with another airline after Spirit told me that they can't accomodate me on another flight."
Pros: "Seats are okay."
Cons: "Cancelled flight. Very rude staff. Lost luggage. What's not to hate?"
Cons: "The two hours delay"
Pros: "We took off 498 minutes late but arrived only fifteen minutes behind schedule. The entire crew did a fine job."
Pros: "The leg room was actually pretty good, but I don't know if that's because my flight was halfway across the country so the plane was maybe a bit bigger than the ones used for shorter flights?"
Cons: "The ground air conditioning per unit was broken so the cabin was pretty hot until the plane was up in the air."
Pros: "We left early. No issues on the flight or any delays."
Cons: "It was a long flight so a movie would have been nice"
Pros: "The staff went above and beyond when we had an issue with out third party reservation .....they took care of the whole problem when it wasn't their error! Very impressed!!! And gave us exit rows to sit in for our inconvenience."
Cons: "No complaints"
Cons: "them charging for everything except the bathroom"
Pros: "They kept the passengers informed about the delay situation even when they didn't have anything solid to tell. Crew was good."
Cons: "All passengers were moved to 3 gates before they finally boarded from the third gate. A delay of 4hrs and changing gates thrice does not go well together at all! They should have told the passengers at that time itself if Spirit had plans to compensate our inconvenience in any way. Would have calmed many people."
Pros: "Not much to rave about"
Cons: "Too many added on fees (luggage, selecting seats...) Flight was also delayed for about 4 hours"
Pros: "The flight was cheap and the crew was GREAT! Luckily I read their baggage (carry on) info before I went to airport so I knew to put my clothes in a backpack for my 3 day trip. Many passengers were upset when they found they had to pay $100/bag for CARRY ON."
Cons: "My seat was double booked and so was another passengers... luckily they were able to get both of us seats on this full flight. Crew was friendly. Seats were very uncomfortable and no space. A large person was next to me and spilling into my seat."
Pros: "The crew was always attentive and responsive."
Cons: "It was very difficult to check in on line. it took me over one hour. Wanted to get my sits and when I took the option there was no sits to select even when paying for it. I checked my carry on and I kept having the offer to be part of the club to pay less for my carry on. I did not want to use the option but I keep being sent to that side. The same experience I had when tried to check in in my flight from Oakland to Chicago on Friday. since the web site did not let me check in I had to check in at the airport. There was an accident in the freeway and I ended up losing the flight from Oakland to Chicago because the website did not let me check in the night before. We arrived 45 minutes before the flight and they have the policy to check in 45 instead of 30 minutes before the fight like other airlines. We did not even get options or credit. We just had to buy another flight. It was a nightmare."
Cons: "Small people, anorexics and toddlers might fit in these seats. Crew was rude and one bathroom wasn't working."
Cons: "Spirit does not participate in the TSA Precheck program. We will not fly with you again, until you do participate!"
Cons: "I understand that Spirit intentionally gives minimal additives and services but I feel they can be a lot more transparent about what they do and do not provide. I felt very uncomfortable on my trip back for the following reasons. 1. Tray table was half the size as a normal tray table. I was trying to do work on it with my small computer and it kept falling off and into my seat mates lap. 2. There was a flight attendant named Duron who made a few comments that made me feel very uncomfortable. I felt he was inappropriate. When collecting trash he walked by my aisle and commented to the person next to me (he was reading the New York Times), "Anything about Trump, or Kill-her-y, Killary, Hillary in there?" And laughed. I was shocked that someone, especially a professional at work would say something so volatile and frankly, violent. On his second round he again came by and asked if "Trump was in the paper and worth reading. Killary in there? You can guess who I am voting for." While people in the back row laughed and the man next to me nervously laughed. I felt very uncomfortable and felt he was inappropriate. I plan never to fly Spirit again after this experience. I hope that you can address this issue with your quality assurance team and to Duron. It can't continue. Thank you,"
Pros: "we flew from oakland to ohare for the first time on Spirit airlines and we were very impressed. We left on time - or even a minute or two early - and landed safely. what more could we ask? The staff was friendly and the plane was clean. two thumbs up!"
Cons: "Spirit Airlines are a collection of thieves who use bait and switch tactics and bully their customers while they are travelling."
Pros: "Airplane was clean and relatively new"
Cons: "Website and customer service"
Cons: "they cancel the flight to Monday"
Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "They publish low prices. What they won't publish is the $84 baggage fee (carry-on) until after purchase. Customer service is scripted and of no help. There is no legroom which may be ok for a short flight. The seats are narrow and crammed in a small space. For the same amount of money, you can get a flight with more legroom, beverages/snacks and a free carry on."
Pros: "Well, I was warned about the charging for everything including a boarding pass."
Cons: "Bad service. The complicated on line reservations for pre pay of bags, specific seat assignments, and to print the boarding pass. Too many sales adds from Spirit. Then they pushed the credit card on the plane. Ridiculous."
Pros: "The crew was competent, my seat neighbors were friendly."
Cons: "Crammed seats, don't recline. No included beverage (not even water). "No frills" = budget airline. Want to have a carry on ? You'll need to pay for that. I do not recommend Spirit for flights over an hour."
Cons: "They kept changing the gate of departure and the fight was delayed many times. It was just not a reliable flight."
Pros: "I got home safely. That is what matters in the end."
Cons: "The crew was not polite to other passengers. The flight was delayed due to a crew member being late. Passengers were held on board and complimentary drinks were not offered. Once we took off, the crew was impolite to passengers needing to use the restroom having sat for over one hour. The flight was bumpy (this is not factored in my grade as Spirit will have little control)."
Pros: "Flight was available and a good value. Flight safe and on time."
Cons: "Spirit gives NO complimentary beverage service. I had to pay $3.00 for a drink of water! No complimentary snacks either."
Pros: "Very efficient and timely"
Cons: "Used Kleenex in the seat pouch in front of me"
Pros: "Going to Oakland and back to Chicago both flights delayed by two hours and one hour"
Pros: "If you're traveling light, the airfare is great. Only pay for what you need - no food, no luggage, etc."
Cons: ""Read the fine print" is what I was essentially told when I learned I had to pay $50 to check my suitcase. I booked via Kayak - who gives no indication of the several fee options to check luggage, beginning from $30 online at spirit.com and so on. Disliked the service and structure, won't fly Spirit or book through Kayak again."
Pros: "A good male flight attendant whose name started with M."
Cons: "I arrived at the airport more than an hour and a half before the flight. The wait for check in was incredibly long. It appeared that there were 5 employees at the counter but only 3 were checking people in. The TSA line was also very long and when it appeared that I was going to miss the flight, I expressed my concern to a Spirit agent who referred me to TSA who referred me back to Spirit. We were told we'd be re-ticketed at the gate. Finally, a large group of passengers who were in the same situation just moved to the head of the TSA line explaining our situation and enduring hostility from some of the other passengers. The gate was far away and I'm not able to run. The plane was held for us but the experience was MISERABLE. Spirit needs to have adequate staff to check people in and needs to press TSA to do the same. I've never had this experience on any other airline and I travel a lot and have for decades"
Pros: "Great flight for the money. No complaints"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I was sitting on the back, the crew spent the whole flight chating on the back very loud, i was very tired trying to rest, besides me there were other travelers that seem to be bothered too, we look back at the crew giving a mad look on our faces so that they quiet down a little but they didnt give a f..... This was my first and last time I travel with spirit, the worse airline i've thavel with so far....."
Cons: "Spirit attendants at check-in misdirected me multiple times due to a glitched boarding pass that they would not explain to me. Then, when I got to security, they couldn't scan my pass because the toner level of the printer had been low and the code came out fuzzy. Then, at the gate, there were no attendants around, so I went looking for one. When I returned to the gate, the gate had closed, which resulted in my missing my flight. I missed a full day of my trip thanks to your poor service, and after calling customer service multiple times with absolutely no result, I will be taking my story to social media and never flying Spirit again."
Pros: "cheap price, easy, pack a small bag and you're good!"
Cons: "take off from ORD was delayed 1.5 hrs by bad engine starter, they had to locate another one... might not be spirit airlines fault. anyway, return flight went smooth."
Cons: "Will never fly Spirit again. Poor customer service, an awful website and brand, and charged extra for a seat AND a carry-on. Which is fine if I knew that when the ticket was purchased."
Pros: "Great pricing. Don't care about the frills. Misunderstood the seat selection process. Wasn't sure why the price was $24.00 when I selected a $12.00 seat. Realized after the fact that the charged was doubled to included the return flight."
Pros: "I arrived alive."
Cons: "Flight took off early and I was rescheduled to another flight missing a funeral. Spent 4 hours on layover in Vegas only to find out that flight was delayed for an hour. Spirit airlines charges for EVERYTHING including water and cary on."
Pros: "Crew was very accommodating."
Cons: "Zero leg room with bags under the seat."
Cons: "The plane dropped suddenly 2 hours in and the pilot never gave an explanation"
Pros: "I really liked the flight attendants."
Cons: "I really didn't like the hidden fees. The huge fee for a carry-on completely negates the low price of the airfare."
