Cons: "The space between seats are too small, and the seats do not recline enough (very uncomfortable)"

Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "No entertainment. Learn from TAM in Brazil and offer entertainment via smartphone / tablet. No food service."

Cons: "That i booked a flight that departed 6:20pm on Alaska Airlines and found out i was put on a red eye American Airlines flight that left at 11:50 pm. In addition did not reciveve any notification of the change. Had to leave the airport because i thought i was leaving at 6:20 pm :("

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight cancelled. Thanks, Obama."

Cons: "Flight itself was good, but will never book via JustFly again. 2/3 of my flights were cancelled and I was never notified. Then I had to call to reschedule, which took almost an hour. Then they stated they would send my confirmation via email 24-48 hours. 3 days later and the confirmation still never came. SO I had to call again and wait another half hour. No point in booking through a 3rd party for that type of hassle."

Pros: "Everything was good"

Pros: "It was a very quick flight! I got some great rest and went right into work, ready for the day."
Cons: "They checked my carry on, and it ran me a little late leaving from Nashville waiting at baggage claim."

Cons: "Dirty food trays trash jammed down it and flight attendant said the she doesn't touch that cleaners doBeing"

Pros: "I was welcomed and make right at home"
Cons: "Did not like having to stay overnight in Charlotte but weather can do that to a traveler."

Cons: "4 delays and two flight changes... I was late and it was crowded"

Cons: "Flight was late, no info why, when landed in DCA NO GATE AVAILABLE - and that is past 10 PM."

Cons: "Plane delayed, had to switch to new plane which was after two hours"

Pros: "I liked the comfortable seats.. The crew working for American Airlines are polite and nice. From the very time to get the boarding passes and my luggage handling and all the hospitality, am really looking forward to fly more on American Airlines."
Cons: "There is not much to not like American Airlines as I don't have any bitter experiences till date and I don't wish to encounter too lol I would like more snacks beside Pretsels too and I wish to have a very good hot Fliter coffee or even green tea's during my flight ☺️"

Pros: "Great service, good window seat, smooth flight"
Cons: "No music/radio at my seat"

Pros: "The flight attendants on both flights were very friendly"
Cons: "They changed my flight without telling me about it. My first flight was at 8 but my plane was late. When I went to the ticket counter they changed my flight and didn't tell me when I was getting to my destination"

Cons: "Seeing as this flight was cancelled and we had to wait as two elderly people until 3pm the next day to get another flight and American Airlines would not compensate in anyway. I would say that we will never fly American Airlines again nor will my family. This was not the only delay or cancellation because of American either. We spent 48 hours traveling because of delays and cancellations and still American would do nothing for us. I'm 66 and my husband is 72 (who also has had back surgery for five slipped discs) and we had to sleep on concrete floors and had very limited money to buy food. It was by far the worst experience of my life and I would encourage everyone to not travel with them."

Pros: "Service and friendliness"
Cons: "Person sitting next to me smelled awful. Several passengers asked to move because of how awful the smell was. This individual should not have been allowed to board for basic sanitation reasons."

Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "American has gone to these thin seats so that they can cram more cattle into the back. They are absolutely the most uncomfortable seats I've ever had the displeasure of being forced to sit in, and unless you're willing to pay even more for "premium" seats, you won't even have enough space to sit. I will never, never, ever give American Airlines another penny."

Cons: "I didn't like how we were 20 minutes early yet after 1.5 hours of sitting on the Tarmac that I missed my connection by a few minutes. I wish the crew hadn't falsely informed the passengers onboard that the other planes would be delayed with the communication issue @ Reagan (DC)."

Pros: "The crew was good."
Cons: "Washington airport grounded our flight for no apparent reason while we were on the runway in Indy about to take off, then didn't tell us when we could expect the delay to end."

Cons: "Delays, delays and more delays. 3 gate changes and finally on an old plane. Avoid if you can. Only good thing about it, it was bringing me home"

Pros: "The crew on board the air craft was great"
Cons: "The Indianapolis to JFK trip was the first of three legs. My bags were only checked to JFK. I have a badly broken ankle and needed a wheel chair. I could not manage my luggage and crutches. It forced me to take a taxi to the international terminal, then ask strangers for help with my luggage once I got there. I am extraordinarily displeased!!!! I will not fly American again."

Pros: "Once we finally got on the flight it was great! The crew was Fabtatsic and gave tons of updates as they became available."
Cons: "The only bad thing I can say was the delay. Beyond their control but very frustrating."

Cons: "It was a 2 hour delay and they had us run to two different gates. The plane didn't take off for another half hour or so"

Pros: "The crew did a great job of keeping the passengers taken care of."
Cons: "Flight delays and almost missed the checkout of our rental car"

Cons: "Delays. Always with the delays. An hour to take off and 30 minutes to land? I changed my flight because my father is dying of cancer, you charge me 200 extra for this? These planes shouldn't be allowed to fly. There's efficiency and there's just plain uncomfortable. Too tight. Small seats."

Pros: "Easy boarding, im about 6'3 so i was a bit uncomfortable being in the middle seat (not airlines fault) overall good first experience."
Cons: "Would have liked to be able to sit by my spouse being my first time on an airplane. Wasnt an option?"

Cons: "Time to board flight and they announced we had no pilots. They did find some within 30 minutes and went ok from there. Jeesh! So glad to get home to Nashville."

Pros: "As always, the staff was courteous and efficient. I never have any problems when I fly American Airlines. I often book my flights specifically for American Airlines when I can."

Pros: "Made it to LGA"
Cons: "Didn't make it home"

Cons: "Very narrow seats. I am not very tall and my knees were hitting the seat in front of me"

Pros: "I liked the smooth ride, and engaging captain. We didn't hit much turbulence, even if it is uncontrollable. Takeoff and landing was smooth and put my worries about flying to rest."

Pros: "Only food you could purchase was snacks, had no entertament."
Cons: "Great customer service appolijesed for only having snacks"

Pros: "Senior flight attendant and pilots were friendly and competent as were the checkin personnel. We also appreciated the fact that the flight was on schedule. Lastly, we were pleasantly surprised with the cleanliness and comfort of coach."
Cons: "No major complaints."

Pros: "Fast entry... Great crew"
Cons: "Entertainment"

Cons: "When arriving in Charlotte North CAROLINA, waiting to board my next flight to Nashville, Tennessee, upon exiting the flight there was no mention as to check your boarding passes because of a change at the gate to our flight fiying back to Tennessee. So i go to the terminal and wait patiently at my gate for my flight to arrive. The departure came but it wasn't for Tennessee it was for Norfolk?? So when i went to the flight agent asked her what happened to the Tennessee flight, she said the flight left 2 hours ago. And when i mentioned no one said anything different about some gate checks had been changed. So i ended up missing my regular flight back home to Tennessee, no thanks to everyone involved, and had to wait an extra 2 hours to receive another flight back to Tennessee. WORST EXPERIENCE EVER!!!!"

Cons: "American also cancelled thos flught"

Pros: "Seeing the fireworks coming into Nashville was a unique experience. Plenty of room on the flight. Confident and competent staff made it a pleasant experience."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight delayed 4 hours, AApersonnel at Luis and counter a little rude, seat was broken on plane....waited almost an hour for luggage!"

Pros: "Power outlets and we arrived safely"
Cons: "$10 for half a sandwich? Only 1 left by the time you get to me? $25 for Internet access? The prices are a complete ripoff. Apparently my group 2 boarding status and your less than full flight still meant that there was no room in the entire cabin for my bag as they took it at the gate and checked it. If the bins had been loaded properly there would have been plenty of room because I saw multiple bags loaded sideways taking up the space of 2 bags or 1 small bag that would easily fit under the seat taking up overhead bin space. Overall (SFO to Nashville) the worst flight experience I have ever had, you still have 1 more chance to impress me on my return flight otherwise I will not fly American Airlines again."

Cons: "Flight cancel, next day 5 gate changes and 5 delays, got home 23 hours late. Some suggest that once you r having a bad experience the airline does not work that hard to make it better, priority given to keeping the other passengers happy."

Pros: "This was ok"

Pros: "it was more or less on time. no aggravations very smooth flight despite weather condition. i am so glad that you have very qualified pilots...... thank you danielle"
Cons: "having the last seat so the back could not be reclined."

Pros: "I like the crew, they were very nice all the time"

Cons: "Not telling us the delays in time"

Pros: "Delayed because of weather maintenance and people"

Pros: "Nothing is good about united."
Cons: "Had to fly into Memphis instead of Nashville in order to make my event. United didn't even help me do it, I figured it out myself . Asked for a refund and they gave me $3. Had to drive 4 hours and rent a car for $75 just to make my event on time that I had planned months ago. United is a terrible airline and I will never fly with them again."

Cons: "Loud guy sitting behind us was all."

Pros: "They eventually refunded me"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 4 times over 4 hours, then we boarded the plane. They then got us off the plane. We waited two hours and then canceled the flight. The gate agents were rude and not helpful when we got in line to figure out how wee would all get to ORD. It was the most dissappointing travel experience I have had in a very long time."

Cons: "Had to sit at the gate for a very long time and it was extremely hot on the plane. Also had to use the restroom very badly while we were sitting at the gate and the crew told me I couldn't."

Pros: "quick flight and good landing"
Cons: "Do flights ever come on time??"

Pros: "The crew is kind"
Cons: "UA flights always get delayed and this time I failed to catch my connecting flight to London. I was rescheduled to the flight in the morning of the second day. And when we were heading for London half way, the pilot said some sensors stopped working and we had to come back to Dulles. To be honest, I will never take UA flights anymore, it is just TERRIBLE!"

Cons: "The 6 hour delay"

Pros: "The free movies on the united app were awesome"

Pros: "On the way to Chicago I was pleased with the staff."
Cons: "I knew I had a layover in Chicago but what I didn't know was that I would have to sit on a plane for over an hour with no air conditioning. It was incredibly hot and because of this I missed my flight to LA which took off earlier than my ticket said."

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "they charged me twice for the same ticket and never refunded me my money"

Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above. Stewartists were rude both ways."

Pros: "Follow up email alerts from Kayak appreciated. Flight on time"

Pros: "Nice crew and boarding staff. The plane was repaired rather than the flight being cancelled."
Cons: "No airconditioning on the ground so the extra time on the tarmac was very uncomfortable. While taxiing, a screen went blank, so the plane returned to the terminal, deplaned, and there was a two hour delay for the repair."

Pros: "Loading was quick and easy with smiles and greetings from hostesses"
Cons: "No drink service on either flight, dumped on jetway and had to take bus to a gate and then navigate to our new gate. This made short layover time even shorter. I flew United down there and had drink service for that led of flight with them."

Cons: "Uncomfortable, and unsafe, seat - with the bottom sagging badly on the right side at the back. Narrowly avoided having to check my hand luggage through to Nice, France, which would have been the second time on a row! Why, oh, why can't they ENFORCE the carry-on rules that are supposed to limit the size and number, as they do in Europe?! If you're in group 5, forget carry-on."

Pros: "Boarding was smooth ans efficient. Crew was attentive and nice."
Cons: "I paid for 2hrs of wifi, yet was unable to access it as the service was "temporarily unavailable" for the remainder of the flight."

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "No problems"
Cons: "Little bumpy but bad weather"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "For some reasons, my reservation didn't have an assigned seat number ! For both trips I had to wait as the absolutely last passenger in order to be told where to sit. In both situations hence i had to leave my bag to the flight assistant because there was no space for it left. When I ask for an explanation i was told it was a sort of United software bug. Nobody cared to explain me what happened, nobody came to me with an apologize, and a flight assistant on my way back made also fun of me for being the last one. This is a ridiculous customer service, I told all my friends and will tell all my finance coworkers as well to not use United anymore."

Cons: "Rough landing, baggage got lost both times ive flown with united and still had to pay after being late over 2 days."

Cons: "My flight was cancelled. I was notified only a few hours before that my weekend plans were ruined."

Cons: "My seat was changed right at the boarding! Even I just checked in on line the night before!"

Pros: "My seat, I paid extra and had seat with more leg room"

Pros: "It was on time and things went smoothlyi"

Pros: "Flight was on time, everything went smoothly."
Cons: "Flight was too short for a meal but possibly a choice of 2 sandwiches along with the beverage they served would be a nice option? No In-flight entertainment that I was aware of."

Cons: "Flight canceled. Forced us to stand in a four hour line to re-book. Phone calls not accepted. These incidents happen all the time- it is inexcusable that United handled the situation so poorly!"

Cons: "Actually I never got a flight to Seattle yesterday. My flight was cancelled and was on hold with United for over 2 hours only to have them tell me they could rebook for two days later. They said that was the only option in the whole Midwest on all airlines. I don't believe them. Horrible customer service. Ive had nothing good to say about United. I am supposed to fly through Newark tomorrow to Seattle and I hope that flight isn't cancelled because I've already missed two days of work. I am very displeased right now. No compensation either."

Pros: "So first scheduled flight canceled., I broke land speed records and paid an additional 50 dollars to get booked on an earlier leaving flight. Boom it was cancelled as well. I'm attempting to fly out at creak of dawn today! Still not home! United had alot of work to do! !!!!!"

Pros: "very friendly crew!!!"
Cons: "Very small and uncomfortable."

Cons: "Flight was delayed 7 times, then cancelled Not fun spending 10 hours in the airport"

Pros: "On time, quick boarding, arrived early, bags were returned quickly --very efficient"
Cons: "No Wi-fi"

Cons: "I had to pay to check my bag even though the attendant asked for roller bags to be checked. The suitcase is a carry on (large, but a carry that fits in overhead compartments). I've traveled with it dozens of times and have never had to to pay to check it."

Pros: "Flight attedant interrupted safety instruction three times and made angry expressions because she could not identify Where somepne was listening to music which could be heard slightly during the instruction. If a passenger does not want to listen that's their business. The flight attendant's reaction was distracting and not appropriate. I appreciate the pilots's message but I could not understand it - my hearing is fine."
Cons: "Boarding was fast and efficient."

Cons: "Rude reservationist was not helpful to my son, who was a 1st time flyer & had no idea what to say or do to rectify his situation. When my sister tried to assist, by phone, reservationist refused to communicate with her."

Pros: "It was a modern plane"
Cons: "Very cramped. No snacks. Food cost money. Tv cost most. I'm a skinny person and I had very little room to be comfortable. I enjoying flying but this flight was very uncomfortable"

Pros: "The sense of humor of the staff was nice to ease the tension of a flight delay"
Cons: "I know part of the cost effectiveness is the fact you don’t serve refreshments but no complimentary water and coffee? Meh"

Pros: "Friendly crew/staff."
Cons: "Seats were really tight on this flight and I felt like I was either in the way of the isle or into the seat next to me. Plus the person next to me was listening to their music so loud I could pretty much clearly make out each annoying song."

Cons: "There is a charge to check bags and a charge for snacks and drinks. Whatever happened to complimentary incidentals?"

Pros: "Smooth take off and landing and very nice flight attendants"

Pros: "30 mins early? Woohoo!!"

Pros: "Not much. It was on time so that was positive"
Cons: "Attitude of staff, comfort , communication regarding carry in"

Cons: "Checking my luggage and then re-checking my luggage !!! Very annoying and very inconvenient. This is not passenger / customer friendly !!!"

Pros: "No delay. Flight was on time"

Pros: "Crew and staff very nice."
Cons: "Took sooooo long to get our bags after the flight! Over 30 mins."

Pros: "non-stop flight"
Cons: "The crew was unfriendly. Had to pay for carry on's. Also had to pay for drinks and snack. Took over an hour to even be offered a water."

Pros: "The price was the draw, but it is very true on Frontier Airlines "you get what you pay for""
Cons: "Seats were very thinly padded, small and non adjustable. The price for both CARRY ON and checked luggage was the highest I have found, $45 carry on and $40 checked. The price for a drink of any kind, water, soft drink and so forth was way too high. Anything to eat was also out of line. If you are diabetic be for warned, bring your own. My flight from Nashville to Las Vegas was so bad, as far as hidden fees and customer service goes, I tried to book a on any other airline for the return trip to Nashville. This was even though I had a round trip ticket on Frontier. To my dismay all other airlines were full. I am writing this review as I wait at the gate for a departure time on my Frontier return trip, we are 2 hours late for departure with no new departure time given. There are not any Frontier employees in the gate area to give updates. This is the bottom of the barrel for airlines and I will not ever be flying Frontier Airlines again."

Pros: "Roomy seats, lengthy seat belts. Plenty of legroom. Fast flight. Like the A320."
Cons: "Charges for EVERYTHING! Why charge for carryon bags? Your crew does not touch them, yet we have to pay to bring them with us? Why pay for water?"

Cons: "Mechanical delay. 4 hours late landing, couldn't even give us a free soft drink, had to finally change planes and barely a apology"

Pros: "Staff were nice."
Cons: "There wasn't much leg room and we felt very cramped. My son sat by a window seat and he was in terrible pain because he couldn't stretch out his legs. I didn't appreciate the fact that nothing is included in the price of the ticket: overhead carry ons, soda and coffee, seat assignments."

Pros: "It was fast and easy"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "It is $5 cheaper to check a bag but still adds $90 onto the overall flight. Also no in flight drinks."
Cons: "Roomier"

Cons: "Paying for soda? Really?"

Pros: "Excellent!!!"
Cons: "Excellent!!!!!"

Pros: "Friendly, comfortable and timely flight."
Cons: "Free drinks? Seemed lacking compared to other flights! Also, baggage allowance? The hidden fees are crazy and not appreciated."

Cons: "I didn't like that they charged $40 to check a bag"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "See above"

Pros: "Fare was reasonable. Crew was nice."
Cons: "Seats on plane not designed to recline!"

Cons: "They sold mine and three other seats to standby... Our next available flight out thru frontier is Wednesday."

Pros: "I liked how the flight was nonstop and on time."
Cons: "Frontier is a very cheap airline. They charge for everything. Want to carry on luggage? Charge! Want to check luggage? Charge! Want a seat that reclines? Charge! Want to choose your seat? Charge! Want a soda or snack? You guessed it... Charge! So my $300 flight ended up being $400 because of luggage charges. The seats were terrible, and I find it absurd you have to pay to have one that reclines."

Pros: "comfortable seats"
Cons: "everything has a charge, soda, carry-on and if you check in early you have to pay for a seat. $50 added to the price for checked bags if you do it online. Online check-in was not user friendly"

Cons: "Seat to tight"

Pros: "On time."
Cons: "The way Frontier does business. You have to pay for seats and luggage. I was shocked they didn't charge me for a seatbelt. Painful. Had me so mad I will never fly their airline again. I am telling everyone how bad the customer service was."

Cons: "But, it's silly that if you want an in flight snack or drink the cost is around $5. Also, having to pay $30 for each checked bag is dumb as well. I read somewhere that airlines are adding additional fees other places to make up for the cost of cheap oil. Shame on you."

Pros: "The crew was wonderful."
Cons: "No free soft drinks, carry on bags, general seating preference. The inexpensive flight turned out to not be a good deal."

Pros: "I liked the price, and this was a major factor in selecting this flight."
Cons: "In all fairness, this was my first Frontier flight, so I was uninitiated to the rinky-dink factor. Be prepared to pay for everything--checked luggage, carry-on luggage ($45!), and your Sprite. Gone are the traditional airline seats--they have been replaced by seats that don't recline and have only a vestigial 3" tray table. I appreciate the low cost, but caveat emptor!"

Pros: "The crew was fine."
Cons: "The timelines of the flight and extra fees. 1.5 hours late for departure. Seating awfully tight."

Pros: "Early morning flight was on time and without delays."
Cons: "Seats are too sturdy and legroom is minimal, especially if your personal item is under the seat in front of you."

Cons: "There is fees for baggage to take on the plane? Wth? It's such a pathetic flight that they charge you for water also? Seriously this is not some third world country where they do that. Small planes, seats don't recline."

Pros: "Overall good. 32 minute wait for luggage. Seemed like a long time. 45 minutes from when we departed. Took a while just to get off plane that I am not counting."

Cons: "Booked this flight in Oct, round trip from N'ville-Denver for $335. After reading the "know before you go " info as best I could I understood a checked bag fee was $25. Carryon was $35, so I only checked a bag & no carryon. $25 fee was only if you also pay for carryon, plus surprise fee of $13/ person for selecting your seat! What a jip! I had bragged to many about the great deal I got with Frontier but after the additional $122 in fees it doesn't sound as good. Be more open & honest about ticket cost. $13+ for selecting your seat!? What the Hell?"

Pros: "Everything was laid out up front and I had no issues that all these other reviews mention. They do tell you upfront that there is a fee for a carry-on so I was able to condense everything down to just a backpack. Also, the water was free but the soda and alcohol had to be paid for. And they do let you pick you seat; I just didn't because I wasn't willing to pay more for that unneeded convenience. So all in all, a very good experience at a very low price last minute. What more could you ask for?"
Cons: "Boarding the plane was a bit of a hassle because we were delayed in boarding. They did not provide enough room time to each group and so there was a long time spent waiting on the jetway as well as in the aisle of the plane. Other than that no real complaints."

Pros: "I really enjoyed the new seats on the plane."
Cons: "There was a loud screaming baby most of my flight :("

Pros: "the crew worked hard to get everyone boarded quickly and overall the flight was quick and uneventful"
Cons: "the crew was unprofessional and seemed very average. the seats were uncomfortable and the tray table was too small to use besides a drink holder"

Pros: "The price, hands down. The gate attendants were very nice."
Cons: "No free soda or snack. The only thing free was ice water. The seats were thin and mashed together and would not lean back at all. Most of the flight attendants seemed to be agree to be at work."

Pros: "Price, on time"
Cons: "Getting used to bargain fare business model. But it has its place"

Pros: "okay"

Pros: "The airport was nice"
Cons: "Everything else was terrible. This will be the last time I use Frontier."

Pros: "Pre dawn flight was quiet, uneventful (in the best way)."

Pros: "It got me to my destination"
Cons: "Super uncomfortable Hardly any storage under seat Hardly a tray table No reclining Barely an arm rest"

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "That everything cost extra. Checking in online, extra so that you could get 2 seats next each other. Snacks and drinks on the plane, extra money. Baggage cost way to much money. Ridiculous! Not much"

Pros: "Flight crew was very entertaining! Made up for down falls of frontier."
Cons: "Cost of luggage and cost of picking a seat assignment."

Cons: "Paying extra for a seat!!! Paying for a soft drink! VERY thin too close seats!"

Pros: "I hated everything about it.from the uncomfortable seats to the rude flight attendants"
Cons: "Hated it will never fly frontier again"

Pros: "the crew was super entertaining & friendly - i like the space under my seat for my personal item"
Cons: "can't recline seats"

Pros: "None"

Cons: "During this pandemic they could have just refunded out money but instead they have, thru Kayak, just got it all confusing. Not sure where to go to get credit on a flight i dont even want to book but from what i heard is pigeon holed that its use it or lose it. Good Job. Spirit and Kayak. The Spirit of ripping off America."

Cons: "Didn’t get to go"

Pros: "Crew was fantastic"

Pros: "Fast boarding. On-time departure and early arrival. Hit the trifecta."

Pros: "CREW WAS AMAZING. THANK YOU!!!"

Cons: "Flight was 4 hours late!! Just showing up on time would have made it better."

Pros: "Terrible gate crew, very aggressive and rude for no reason whatsoever. Delayed boarding and takeoff on 4 flights in a row, uncomfortable seats and dirty everything. I will never ever fly Spirit again."
Cons: "Almost everything."

Pros: "The chicks were hot"
Cons: "Seats don’t recline and you have to pay for water"

Pros: "Crew was amazing"
Cons: "Overall it was good"

Cons: "Flight was rescheduled twice! And when I called to see if it was going to get canceled they said that it might still take off at the original time, even though I got 2 emails saying it was rescheduled. This made it really frustrating because we would not make it on time if it took off at the originally scheduled time! We rushed over to the airport just to be told it was taking off late again! So we waited at the airport for 2 more hours!"

Pros: "Fantastic crew, lively and happy. Smooth flight with no delays."
Cons: "Power outlets would be wonderful. WiFi is probably a cheaper option to provide versus the in flight screens/entertainment. Wasn’t super nessecary for a flight this length but I would be sorely missing these things on a longer flight."

Cons: "Multiple delays. Turbulence. Not even offered water."

Cons: "Due to a traffic jam, I was late & missed my flight. I talked to the lady at the front desk to discuss my options. Because they didn’t have a flight to my destination until several hours later I let her know I was going to take a different outgoing flight with another airline. she did not give me any other response or information other than - Okay. Well, turns out she didn’t notate my account, I was considered a “no show” & they cancelled my returning flight. Worst customer service experience. They’re so insensitive to unforeseen circumstances - “you shouldn’t have missed your flight in the first place” and “you agreed to the terms & conditions” was their only responses. Safe to say I’m never flying Spirit again. Stay away folks! :)"

Cons: "My luggage was lost."

Pros: "The price of the flight, attendants were nice"
Cons: "Hands down, spirit has the most uncomfortable seats of any airline"

Pros: "The friendliness of the crew"
Cons: "Very hot and uncomfortable"

Pros: "The randomized seat gave me the from row with more leg room. That was sweet."
Cons: "There wasn’t anything i didn’t like, it was what you expect out of a $65 flight."

Pros: "Flight time leaving and arriving was great."
Cons: "The seats just seemed so close. And the charging for a carry on now seems pricey."

Pros: "I loved getting the emergency exit row."
Cons: "I wish it was a little cheaper than 23 dollars."

Pros: "Flight was fairly quick. We were delayed by half an hour but was alerted via text nearly 12 hours before the flight so I was expecting it. Landed on time even with the delay. Flight itself was smooth."
Cons: "Baggage Fee for a carry on is ridiculous. Mobile boarding pass doesn't always work for me. I fly a lot and this never happens to me except with Spirit Airlines. No WIFI."

Cons: "Nothing spirit is pure garbage"

Pros: "Good service."

Cons: "The fact that we were charged a lot for out bags, and you guys charged $14.00 for the seats that are not comfortable at all."

Pros: "The crew and employees were excellent. They were personable and knowledgeable."
Cons: "Even though the fare may be somewhat discounted, the bag(s) were extremely expensive and everything else that most other airlines provide (water, coffee, juice, peanuts) were available to purchase. Low caliber, at best."

Cons: "Will never fly spirit again! Luggage weight is NOT like other airlines, fees for luggage are ridiculous and the carry-on rule is insane! Pay for soda and food? Horrible Horrible Horrible Airline! Costs way too much money!"

Pros: "Price"
Cons: "Seats, highly uncomfortable , flight delayed. Crew not on time to plane."

Cons: "They delayed the flight by 5 hours and flew in early so 20 of us missed that later flight, even though we received an email it was coming in on time moments after it left. I had to cancel and fly with Delta. The next dayI had to go to retrieve my suitcase from Fort Lsuderdale. I ended up flying into West Palm Beach. I will never fly Spirit for any money ever again. The hidden costs are ridiculous. I had no choice but to buy a seat because there are no free seats. That flight costed more than double the original cost."

Pros: "Ticket price was good, but this was my first time on Spirit and I assumed that Spirit was like most others and that a carry on roller bag was ok. I didn't realize that it would be $65 when purchased at the gate. I'll put that on me for booking too fast. Aisle width on the A319 was great for my aisle seat."
Cons: "$65 for part of an overhead bin seems like I'm not welcome as a Spirit passenger, as least not without some changes of habits. The tray on my seat wasn't much bigger than a envelope and made work or reading as I've envisioned it not possible. I did read, and I did write on the trip, but I had to learn to do it Spirit's way. My $2 coffee was tepid, and watching the flight attendants, I wasn't sure they'd welcome my asking for a reheat. The vibe - as I read it - was wrong for me to ask. Ok, so now I think I know what I'm going to get with Spirit's low prices"

Pros: "Relatively cheap cost"
Cons: "Hidden fees on seats & constant advertisement"

Pros: "Choose spirit if you are looking for a cheap flight and don't have any bags."
Cons: "Bag charges are pretty outrageous"

Pros: "It was easy, and friendly."
Cons: "No complaints"

Cons: "50 bucks for a checked bag"

Pros: "On time, quick board, good leg room, great for a 90 minflight"
Cons: "Security line at airport could have been stagfed with more people and go quicker"

Cons: "I know for a fact that I will never take a spirit flight again in my life and neither should you. I was supposed to leave Fort Lauderdale on Saturday at 11:30am. The flight kept being delayed until 6:30pm when passengers were finally told that it was cancelled. The runaround that Spirit gave us was absolutely ridiculous - literally. Due to the plane still being in Fort Myers and not being at the original gate they made us change to 3 different gates -E2, E7, G10- various locations within the airport. I am talking about one side of the airport to another. Finally, at the last gate 10, the plane arrives at 1pm but there was mechanical difficulties that had to be repaired. We boarded the plane at 3pm once the plane was fixed. We sat on the plane for 45 minutes before a Rep came on the plane to ask for 4 volunteers to give up their seats. Four people leave and another group of four people board. Captain tells us that they are searching for luggage and once that's finished we will leave. An hour later, still seated in the plane the Captain apologizes and says that he will let us leave the plane to stretch our legs because Laguardia has not cleared the plane for take off. At this point it is close to 5pm. We wait another hour and half of Reps saying they don't have info because apparently now there is a weather concern in NY that is causing the delay. I immediately call my husband to ask about the weather and he tells me it was sunny, 60 degrees, and it rained for 20 minutes. I get a feeling that Spirit is about to cancel this flight and even ask the Reps- they all say no the flights not being cancelled. After another hour and half wait they make the grand announcement that the flight is cancelled. If you thought that was the worst part of my day, think again. After chaos breaks out from the passengers we are told to find customer service at gate H5. Another trek trough the airport we reach customer service who is a lone Rep with a line wrapped around the corner. After waiting another hour to speak to her, she tells me the earliest flight Spirit could put me on is Tuesday night (remember it's Saturday night). I ask if there is a way to get on to other airlines and she tells me that it isn't spirits policy to find me any flight home. They could only reimburse me and I would have to book my own flight home. I leave the line and start searching for flights and it becomes clear that flights are booked going to NY. I eventually book a flight for the next day on United that leaves out of Miami airport, connects in Chicago and lands in Newark. I took this flight that was 3 times the cost of the Spirit flight, with connections, an hour and half drive from my house just so I could end the Spirit nightmare. Moral of the Story: For your sanity, to be treated professionally with consideration to your time, take any airline other than Spirit."

Pros: "It was horrible flight. From start to finish."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Poor attitude of every body Not willing to help"

Pros: "Crew was very nice which was probably the only positive thing I have to say about this airline."
Cons: "There is a charge for every single little thing from bags checked to snacks and even water!! I have never been on an airline where you had to pay for water. The seats were tiny and uncomfortable without the ability to recline (and I am a very petite woman). There were also a bunch of people standing in the aisles and socializing which was extremely disrupted and I did not realize this was allowed on flights. I was highly disappointed and cannot recommend this airline."

Pros: "Inexpensive and easily available flights"
Cons: "THEY CHARGED ME $65 AT THE GATE FOR MY BAG THAT COMPLETELY FIT IN THEIR DEFINED DIMENSIONS! When I checked my bag at home, it was within their dimensions. When I checked it at the ticket counter it fit within their metal frame for measuring. When I got to the gate, they told me to step aside and check my bag. Without even looking at my bag, the lady at the counter told me it wouldn't fit and I had to pay extra. I told her it fit, and with an attitude, she asked me to put it in the frame to see if it fit. Suddenly, it did not. She said it didn't fit by over 2 inches. It was less than a 1/4 of an inch, and barely that. I was furious. She refused to care, refused to listen to me, and told me that it was either pay the $65 and board the plane or leave the bag there. Totally rude, and did this to SEVERAL OTHER PASSENGERS. HIGHLY DOUBT I'LL EVER FLY THIS AIRLINE AGAIN."

Pros: "It is cheap, if you can make it stay that way. I'm getting used to the middle seat. The snacks I brought with me were great."
Cons: "This flight: -Pilots were delayed, plane left 50 min after scheduled time. -While we waited the cabin was pretty hot and uncomfortable which made no sense considering the outside temp was in the 60s Every flight: -The really loud /long credit card advertisement announcements -the seat in front of you is about an inch too close unless you pay extra, then you have almost too much -they keep fares low by sticking it to people that can't keep track of all the little rules to avoid fees. Luckily I made it past the traps. -I don't like that they are further decreasing the allowed size for free personal item starting in a few months, seems like an unnecessary measure to stick more people with last minute bag fees. -The website is not great, I have only flown spirit about 5 times and I have had the website crash while trying to check in at least 3 time. At two check-in's per flight, that's a 30% failure rate. and then there's more ads, yay my favorite..."

Cons: "Cramped seating, no free checked luggage. Result us that overall cost is same as major carriers with less service and comfort."

Cons: "- I was never notified via email or phone about the delays that were occurring during the day - Flight was delayed 6 hours - Both toilets were clogged and were out of order - There was no alcohol to purchase for the flight - Seats were inadequately small - $55 carry on fee was ridiculous - Charged $1.50 for a small bottle of water"

Pros: "Every one was pleasant. Ran on time. Everything was great. There was no food or entertainment"

Pros: "Cost of flight"
Cons: "Condition of plane, seemed old"

Cons: "Changed time to one hour later than time posted at check in."

Pros: "The price is right! Not a lot of room or extras, but great for shorter flights."

Cons: "The plane was SO COLD and you guys don't provide blankets."

Cons: "Wouldn't let me board my flight even though I got the almost an hour before take off then told me I had to pay $100 to catch the next flight. I will never got with spirit airlines again."

Cons: "Waiting in the airport 12 hours for a replacement plane to arrive and getting no updates on progress"

Pros: "Great service. Prompt flight. Didn't get food or entertainment."
Cons: "Bought tickets from another site. Didn't know we pay for luggage, food, etc."
