Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The crew was very courteous and helpful, they seemed to have a positive attitude and worked with passengers like they really enjoyed their job."
Cons: "There was a 3 hour delay outbound and a 9 hour delay inbound. On the inbound flight I was put up in a nice hotel for the day and given a $30 meal voucher. However I missed my connecting flights and had to be put up when I got back to the States. Despite getting in at 10pm I was put on a 5am flight."
Pros: "Everything was generally fine. The flight left about 1 hour late, but the pilot made up the time on the flight and we landed about the same time as originally expected."
Cons: "The crew, particularly the flight attendants were rude and impatient. Have they forgotten their manners?"

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."

Cons: "We were delayed upon landing but I realize the circumstances were beyond the crews control so no point fretting. Still disappointing nonetheless."
Cons: "No entertainment, screaming children and no food"
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)."
Cons: "The delay"
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: "Seat assigned"
Cons: "Barely made my flight because my connection was late and I got to the plane right as they were about to give up my seat I was seated next to an obese gentlemen whose body was hanging into my seat and I had to spend 3 hours completely uncomfortable because the plane was completely full. Worst plane ride ever"
Pros: "The pilot acknowledged we had to wait an extra 25 min which he made up by stepping on it .... Or giving it more juice I guess . The good thing is even though we boarded late we arrived on time but no gates where available."
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."
Cons: "The AA employee at the counter in Batoj Rouge informed me that I would miss my connection at Charlotte Airport due to a delayed in the incoming flight. Hebgave me the option to flight the next day or flight the same day, and after a 2 hour delay flight to Charlotte where I would be provided a hotel room and a meal for the night. I asked several times if that information was confirmed and he repeatedly said yes. At my arrival at Charlotte Airport (near midnight) every AA employee said that they did NOT have any more hotels. It was obvious that everything was a staged lie since over 100 people had to spend the night in one of the the terminals where we were provided a pillow and a blanket. I am terribly disappointed for the lack of transparency in AA. I was told my some friends that they also have had experiences like that at the same Charlotte Airport. You have damage once again your reputation and from no own in will expect THE WORST from AA."

Pros: "Offered food."
Cons: "Communication from kayak/American Airlines was delayed, inaccurate and slow about the massive delay in the flight. Spent almost my whole day at the airport. Had to change my flight; the new one was also delayed by 2 hours."

Pros: "This was ok"

Cons: "The seats were a little small."
Pros: "We got home! After canceled flights on other airlines, United got us home safely. There were delays and turbulence, but we all landed safely."
Cons: "After booking my flight months in advance United change are seating and separated us. Spent hours on the phone with no explanation and no assistance. Didn't even help me upgrade when I was willing to pay for it. The worst of it all was the nonsense that their customer service kept spewing. Brushed and straight up lied to. Will do everything possible to never fly united again"
Cons: "horrible service representative in newark."
Cons: "Flights was delayed and connection was unable to be made. My younger brother is now im limbo in newark nj and is not getting much help at all. Very dissapointed in united. He may have to spend the night in the airport they said. Smh"

Cons: "Crowded not a lot of room"
Pros: "Staff excellent"
Cons: "Passengers space is insanely small, staff work under restrictive conditions"
Pros: "Customer service was amazing, I really enjoyed my journey traveling with United."
Pros: "Awesome flight , great crew, couldn't ask for better"
Pros: "In seat entertainment was pretty good. Food was also surprisingly good, though it would have been nice if bigger. To be fair, it was typical sized for an airline meal."
Cons: "They ran out of wine in economy. I had two tiny cups and then was told they were all out. Seats in economy plus only barely reclined. I just can't sleep on an overnight flight when sitting virtually vertical. I was seated in economy plus so the legroom was reasonable."
Pros: "Courteous and friendly employees..helpful"
Pros: "I was happy to have leg room on this flight. My first one was way too cramp"
Cons: "Why does the crew giving the announcement have to either hell into the microphone or why does the speakers so loud it was deafing!"

Pros: "The seat was comfortable, the plane was new, and staff was friendly."

Cons: "Seat size. Snacks both ways! I need like s snack option "peanuts or granola""
Cons: "Flight was late , and many other issues"
Pros: "I was able to get a seat change so that I had some great leg room."
Cons: "There was no internet or video content without huge fees."
Cons: "United made no accommodation for a late-arriving connecting flight. The United schedule required changing terminals and a race to the next gate -- then closed the doors five minutes early even though there were passengers sprinting from the other terminal to make their connection. They knew the connecting flight had been delayed; they should have waited five minutes to let us on. The result was a nine-hour wait in Newark Airport for the next United flight."
Pros: "Airline attendants were pleasant."
Cons: "No wifi and a very small plane. The plane was also extremely cold. There was very cold air blowing at my feet and I was so cold on the flight I was shivering. I had to lift my feet up or place them under my bag to keep them from being so cold. The Newark airport in terminal A did not have many food options and security did not honor TSA precheck. It was also extremely dirty and poorly organized."
Cons: "Seat could not recline, voucher was only a small fraction of the ticket fare that I paid. This is a business class seat."
Pros: "Friendly and efficient. All went as planned"
Pros: "People only comment to complain. In my case, everything went smoothly and ahead of schedule. The pilots took advantage of tail winds and put us at the gate ten minutes ahead of schedule. The crew was professional, personable and did their best to make everyone as comfortable as possible."
Cons: "A male flight attendant was so rude demanding and yelling at me to take my carry on down because according to him it didn't fit, he didn't even try, I asked him politely if I can give it a try and he responded "you can do whatever you want" with such an attitude!!, of course it did fit perfectly. so racist! Also 5hours flight from LA to Newark and not a single snack not even considered that this was a very early flight in the morning."
Pros: "It's was fine no issues"
Cons: "Too close of a connection flight."
Pros: "The flight attendants were extremely nice."
Cons: "Flight was needlessly delayed. No help given. Horrible."
Pros: "The flight was everything I imagined."
Pros: "I've only used United a handful of times between London and New York. They've been okay. The worst flight was on an older plane that felt like it'd been built in 1975, and the entertainment was rubbish. The staff however are always pleasant and accommodating. Their service was just as good on my heavily delayed return flight, and managed to handle the tired, short fused customers with aplomb. Hats off to them."
Cons: "My return flight from EWR to LHR was delayed by 4.5hours. Initially it was a 20minute delay; then we boarded the plane, only to sit still for an hour due to technical difficulties. Then we were delayed by another 30 minutes. Then we were asked to leave the plane as a replacement jet was required. It was meant to take 15 minutes, when it actually took at least 1.5 hours. It was a 6.10pm flight, and we boarded the new plane at 9.30pm. We eventually jetted off at 10.30pm. I'de received 10 text messages stating each each rescheduled/delayed departure time. Sadly, it's the worst flight I've ever had. I ended up 3.5 hours late for work, missed an important business meeting. Shame."
Pros: "We left on time"
Cons: "No leg room what so ever. I was cramped into my seat. The service was terrible"
Cons: "My first flight with United leaving from DC was delayed multiple times and therefore I missed my connecting flight from Newark. I stayed at a hotel to catch the next flight with British Airways leaving from DC to London but had already checked my bags in and could not find out where they were, so I slept with only my handbag! I was never reimbursed for my stay at the Marriott even though I had no control over the flight that was delayed for unknown reasons. After all seemed okay and I reached Mumbai I expected my checked in bag to be at the baggage claim area. I waited for two hours and still had no idea where my bags were. I was very frustrated at this point. I was then advised to create a customer care case with British airways to track my lost baggage, even though United should have handled the transfer of luggage earlier. I called back for three days straight, again I was still without clothes and toiletries his whole time, and the service was dismal. After I got in touch with British and United and got everything sorted out I had my bags delivered to my address in India. The terror continued. I opened my bags and found some minor electronics and other valuables missing! How does that even happen if the bags were previously screened and processed in the States? Overall, I was extremely dissatisfied with this entire experience and do not recommend booking with United Airways at any cost!"
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!"
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: "Friendly personality of flight attendant."
Cons: "Did not "wow" me with service."
Pros: "Seat very small and uncomfortable"
Pros: "30 mins early? Woohoo!!"
Pros: "No delay. Flight was on time"
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: "It is $5 cheaper to check a bag but still adds $90 onto the overall flight. Also no in flight drinks."
Pros: "All the flight were on time . Had no idea what to expect . Sure I'll fly with fomtier again. I sure will recommend this airline to my friends . Thank you ."
Cons: "Really not sure ? I wouldn't know how to grade a airline . Sorry ."
Pros: "Nothing. I'll never fly Frontier again"
Cons: "My ticket ended up having 260.00 more dollars added on the back end because of choosing my seat, charging for carry on."
Cons: "I didn't like that they charged $40 to check a bag"
Pros: "Crew was fine and patient."
Cons: "March trip to Orlando should consider types of travelers - families with small kids. Flight delayed over 2 hours, baggage pickup took an hour. Kids over tired. Argument between grandmother with small kids on couple without kids occurred while waiting to deplane. Seems like flight priority should be altered. Had to wait on flight from Denver? I am sure that flight did not have nearly as many small children on that flight. Early flight to Orlando would make more sense to me. Why an hour for baggage? Due to delay, several of us lost our rental car reservations in Orlando."
Pros: "Even though we had a considerable delay the crew as well as the passengers handled it well ie. noone talked or acted angry. They all just seemed to take in stride which made it much more tolerable."
Cons: "We left about an hour late. Initially because of difficulty starting the rear engine and then because of a medical emergency on board. Obviously the airline was not responsible for the medical emergency."
Cons: "The airline lost our luggage, it was labelled correctly and we didn't switch planes, so crazy that it could happen. They called around midnight and left message expecting me to reply immediately! Also no one in baggage office although open sign on door and during business hours. It's 36 hours since we landed and still no luggage"
Pros: "Ground crew missed rehearsal dinner to stay with us 6hrs"
Cons: "No heads up. Checked in 1.45hrs early & they new we were delayed but didn't say anything. Left 6 hrs late. Arrive at Disney with a 5 yr old at 1:00 am instead of 7:00 pm. If you would have been honest and proactive with Indianapolis we would have been fine. Better off to tweet your problem. Call=hold. Locals=in the dark. $15 food credit each is a good start. $100 each emailed so quickly is impressive but it's a credit to a bare bones airline that charges you for a water after their 6 hrs issue. Could have made snacks and non alc drinks free. NO NO NO. We had to pay another $11 for water, apple juice, food and GL of wine. SERIOUSLY. WANT TO MAKE IT RIGHT??? Missed several opportunities for "Little things that count". Give all $300 to one of us for a free ticket-we won't be flying with our grandson again. I will give you a chance to fix that. Not a threat a promise."
Pros: "Smooth once on it."
Cons: "5.5 hour delay for "broken plane". All we got was a meal voucher and supposedly 100 bucks. Many of us missed reservations for more than that."
Pros: "Kayak sent emails every step of the way even notified me of a gate change. Made it simple"
Pros: "Nothing. It was crowded and hot. Haven't been that hot in a plane since flying in a Piper without air years ago."
Cons: "Flight was well over 2 hours late getting to Orlando causing me to miss my connecting flight to Brazil. Consequently I'm trying to sleep in a chair in the terminal of MCO because Frontier wouldn't step up to the plate and help with a hotel, let alone pay the $250 it's going to cost me to re-ticket my trip. I can't afford that. God only knows when or if I'll ever reach Brazil. So much for my Dream Vacation. Never, ever do I plan on flying them again."
Pros: "Check-in, baggage check went well, quick, friendly personnel."
Cons: "Seats are a little uncomfortable; thin, don't recline. Baggage policies are "different" but not a secret. If you don't like, fly another airline!"
Pros: "Fare was reasonable. Crew was nice."
Cons: "Seats on plane not designed to recline!"
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."
Pros: "Low Price, Direct Flight , Arrived 20 min. Earlier than scheduled time, in spite of 20Min. Delay in departure. Which means we made up 40 Min time, on a SHORT Flight from Indianapolis to Ft. Myers. Good Show..."
Cons: "No leg room, Seats not reclining. Must pay for carry on. BUT What can you expect FOR $88.00. Ticket: ROUND TRIP,NON STOP,:: 2hr.40min each way??????????? I will recommend Frontier Air, Due to my Past experience with them. Lewis F. 1-17-16 FLT 1089"
Pros: "Once off the ground the flight was fine."
Cons: "There was a significant delay fr de-icing. Only updated once on the process and everyone was left trying to figure out what was taking so long. There were several strange noises on the flight and once landed. It would have been nice for the passengers to have been told what they were."
Pros: "Price was good. Wish you had more flights"
Cons: "Almost 4 hour delay on the flight."
Cons: "The window was dirty with fingerprints as was the seat trays. I didn't feel anything got clean from any previous flights! I'm going to have to rethink any money I'm savings as I now have to deal with this cold!"
Cons: "Didn't know you had to pay extra for a seat assignment and $30 to check a bag. Added a lot more expense to the flight. I hate to be nickeled and dimed. Just put everything into the cost of the flight!!!"
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: "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."
Pros: "Friendly crew, on-time departure, clean plane,good food choices, roomy seats."
Cons: "No in-flight entertainment, small tray"
Pros: "Good timing"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Affordable!!! If you travel light, this is the perfect flight. $ for carry ons, but perfect if you can fit everything in a backpack."
Pros: "LIKED THE FACT THAT THE PILOT DID A "WALK ABOUT" THE PLANE CHECKING TIRES, AND INSPECTING ENGINE FAN BLADES, NACELLES, SLATS AND FLAPS, UNDERCARRIAGE....HAVE NOT SEEN THAT IN A LONG, LONG TIME FOR ANY OTHER AIRLINE"
Cons: "DID NOT LIKE THE "NICKLE AND DIMING" FOR CARRY ON ($35 FEE EACH WAY), EMERGENCY EXIT SEAT ($35 EACH WAY) AT LEAST ICE WATER WAS FREE"
Pros: "Very good rate for a last minute booking!"
Pros: "Everything was laid out up front and I had no issues that all these other reviews mention. They do tell you upfront that there is a fee for a carry-on so I was able to condense everything down to just a backpack. Also, the water was free but the soda and alcohol had to be paid for. And they do let you pick you seat; I just didn't because I wasn't willing to pay more for that unneeded convenience. So all in all, a very good experience at a very low price last minute. What more could you ask for?"
Cons: "Boarding the plane was a bit of a hassle because we were delayed in boarding. They did not provide enough room time to each group and so there was a long time spent waiting on the jetway as well as in the aisle of the plane. Other than that no real complaints."
Pros: "It was ontime"
Cons: "Paying for every little thing thickets ended up costing double with all the extra fees"
Cons: "I had a wheel missing from my roller bag. I thought for 30$ they would do a more gentle job!"
Pros: "Clean plane - new lighter weight design w/new seats"
Cons: "Everything with frontier is a la carte - annoying as they claim the best prices on kayak - $30 for a carry on each way .....& seat assignments are at least $16/each way"
Pros: "Cheap air fair for this specific slight. Seats were nicer than Frontier's other flights which still is not saying much. I usually fly united and delta and they are about 10 times better in every area."
Cons: "Staff was rude for our early morning flight. They charged for everything besides water. You could tell no one enjoyed their job. There was no entertainment not even a magazine. They were not fun to fly with at all."
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"
Cons: "The flight could have happened"
Pros: "Yes !!! They change my seats for take my family closer..."
Cons: "I think the fly is with much people. One seat in the middle with no body is better in this time for Security COVID."
Cons: "Flight was 4 hours late!! Just showing up on time would have made it better."
Pros: "Plane was new and I also liked the fact that they did not charge you to breathe you only have to pay extra for everything else even a cup of water cost three dollars"
Cons: "They charge you for everything including water for three dollars. Their baggage has a maximum weight of 40 pounds unlike any other airline. They make you pay for carry-ons. They make you pay to pick your seat. You have to pay extra for everything so the bottom line is spirit is probably the most expensive airline to fly. The seats are tiny the trays are tiny, they don’t have TVs, seats do not recline. First and last time Flying with them. My bags were 42 pounds and 46 pounds and I had to pay and additional $30 for each of them."
Pros: "Nothing, I am so disappointed, my reason for going to New Jersey was to say goodbye to my Father, the doctors at the VA Hospital Brooklyn told me that my Father is dying. I am here in Houston Texas while my Father is dying in Brooklyn, N.Y. My heart is hurting."
Cons: "They could have paged me, not all employees speak clearly. If you really care, call me right now for O am sitting in the airport going nowhere. Theresa Matthews (832) 891-9022"
Pros: "What a lousy airline, cheap doesn’t mean bad service."
Cons: "Lost my flight, no calls for boarding, just a line was the explanation no one cares, lousy employees and they don’t care."
Cons: "Our flight was held for 50 mins at the gate in FLL waiting for a group of 70 passengers who got held up in customs returning from Cancun. So Spirit decided to inconvenience all other timely passengers to accommodate late people. Ridiculous to penalize the whole plane for other people's issues."
Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "No comment"
Pros: "Good flight overall."
Cons: "It's more about the airline than anything else. The cost of the checked bag should be included in the fare price. Because I couldn't log into my account online prior to check-in, I ended up paying $52 each way for my bag. As far as the aircraft itself, I found the seats and leg room space to be smaller than other airlines."
Pros: "Crew was kind, after some coaxing waited for a family member of a fellow passenger who wandered too far from gate to make it back in 10 minutes."
Cons: "Need updates and alerts on delayed flight!! I was checking my phone every 15 minutes from the restaurant next to the gate, reloading the status page, and the status that it changed from delayed two hours to taking off now happened within a 10 minute window. Next thing I know they are calling for final boarding, last call, even though half the flight didn't make it there yet because they didn't update that the delay was cancelled until minutes before boarding. I understand we all need to take off ASAP, but they've got to understand if everyone was standing at the gate, there would be no room to stand so we all disperse and know we can check our smartphones for updates."
Pros: "They refunded us"
Cons: "Refused to accommodate us or put us on a different flight."
Pros: "Good staff on flight. There was plenty of empty seats and I got moved to a more convenient spot."
Cons: "Website is not clear. My carry on had unclear dimensions and I had to pay extra at the airport."
Pros: "Quick Flight"
Cons: "Baggage Fees"
Cons: "Terrible landing. Descent had way more twist and turns than any other flight and seemed much longer than normal."
Pros: "The plane seemed new"
Cons: "Paying for every single thing - including carry on bag and water. The low price no longer remains low when charged for everything. Flight crew and other positions didn't have good customer service either."
Cons: "Don't have any intertainmen in the flight....TV no snacks you have to paid it.."
Cons: "Getting checked in and checking a bag was chaos. Then we waited nearly 45 minutes for our baggage to come."
Cons: "Baggage fees extremely high..even if you take it on the plane. If you do t have access to a computer a charge to check I at the airport. Have to pay for membership. Time you pay all the high fees no cheaper then other airlines hat have better service."
Cons: "i was seated next to a women that clearly needed two seats. when she boarded someone should have seen this . I was stuffed into a seat and couldn"t move for my 21/2 hr flight. I didn"t want to make a sene but Really? BETHIE DAYTON"
Pros: "With spirit you can't beat the prices of flights."
Cons: "The extras expenses and rules for baggage. My flight departing was three hours delayed and on my way back home it was delayed 4 hours. I understand that sometimes weather is a factor but in this case there was no reasoning"
Cons: "Spirit Airlines nickel & dimes u for everything!! U pay $10 to speak to a rep & u don't get seats unless u pay extra. Carry on costs $35!!! The chairs don't recline & have almost no cushions. Never again!! And my first flight got cancelled!!!!! The worst!"
Pros: "Price of ticket,"
Cons: "Long lines at check in, took an hour to get bags at baggage claim!"
Pros: "Everything went in a timely manner."
Cons: "I did not appreciate having to pay for my small carry-on bag or for water."
Pros: "No zoned boarding"
Cons: "I missed the memo about any baggage costing money. I got to the airport and had to pay $55 to keep my bag! I could've taken a different airline (that actually offered free snacks - Spirit does not) for the same total cost as a Spirit ticket and bag fee."
Pros: "Departure and arrival time was awesome including the crew members."
Cons: "My baggage fee is too expensive"
Cons: "there is no (free) food, there is no entertainment, and the boarding process was poorly done, had far too employees and miserable"
Pros: "The initial fare"
Cons: "The fare for my mother's little carry on was more than her own fare. Fortunately, she was able to reach me. The offer to reduce the fare for the bag is only for online members."
Cons: "The Crew on my way to Florida from newark were little below in their service I ask if they could ask fellow passengers to stop shouting and did not do any. our flt was delay 30 min from FLL to Ewr."
Cons: "All the extra fees"
Cons: "I will never fly Spirit again. I knew from one previous experience that they were the pits regarding seat room; but I never figured they were theives They never sent a confirmation of ticket. THEY HAVE ABSOLUTELY NO HUMAN BEING TO SPEAK WITH IN PERSON on their telephone contact number, no matter what button you push. The transaction didn't post on my credit card, so I assumed it did not go through. I bought another ticket. Five days later they put both tickets through. that's it I am done with this cluster F$%K airline."
Pros: "Everything except the delay"
Cons: "The delay"
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "No beverages, freezing in plane, they trick you with 'lower' prices then charge $55 / carry on each way. Then they have a Spirit 'watch guard' to make sure everyone devlares their carry on. When you go back they help you by charging you $55 to carry it on board rather than the $50 check in price."
Cons: "The online checkin system was down, we had to wait in the line for more than one hour to drop the luggage. Appart from that pretty smooth ride."
Cons: "Flight was delayed three times then cancelled and no reason was given. Everyone on the flight was stranded in Orlando overnight and the airline didn't comp any accommodation for a single one of the passengers. The customer service was terrible. Such a mess!!"
Cons: "Pay $380 for the flight sound good.NO. then had to pay $40 to check my bag each way. Then they want $3 for a bottle of water, no tv, the seats its like seating on to of each other, and on top of all that had to pay $13 each way for my seat.NEVER AGAIND."
Cons: "our flight took off and landed 40 minutes late because the pilot lost his cellphone prior to boarding, so we had to wait for it to be retrieved. every. single. standard. thing. comes with a cost. no temperature control (everyone was freezing) no seats, despite paying $35 extra, recline speaker volume is uncontrollable and incredibly loud"
Pros: "The crew was funny or at least they tried to be."
Cons: "It cost extra $55 to bring your own carry-on bags on board, and they even charge you money if you want to choose your own seat. I understand as a cheap airline they need to make money on some portion of the passenger to make the ends meet. But they did not inform me before the purchase, if I knew that it will cost extra $55 to bring your own bag, I will not choose this airline, and I know for a fact I am not the first one to find out the extra charges at the airport."
Pros: "plane was big enough, flight was pretty much on time, the flight attendents did there job well"
Cons: "i had one small backpack on my back, my laptop, and one small duffel bag. i was charged $50 to check, and most of the overhead compartments were partially empty..... robbery. also no complimentary snack or drink. i paid for everything"
Pros: "The flight was on time. The crew were friendly and professional."
Cons: "First, in Newark Airport I could not figure out where my flight was departing from. The Spirit web site claimed "Gate B41," but when I arrived in that part of Terminal B, there was no sign of Spirit Airlines. All the TV screens and signs were for Delta and United. Others sitting near me were wondering the same thing. Eventually a Spirit Air employee with a portable, rolling yellow stand appeared, and the TV screen on the stand announced our flight. Otherwise, the worst aspect of the airline is that the seats are hard plastic shells that do not recline at all. Taking a carry-on into the plane costs $45 each way. Absolutely no food or beverages are free (even water). You can't mail your boarding pass to your phone. There is no entertainment. This airline is REALLY basic and not comfortable. The sole attraction is low fares."
Pros: "I like the fast boarding and the price for the flight is very accessible"
Cons: "There were 3 delays because of maintenance at last minute, and after that took forever to take off"
Cons: "The ticket price looks good until you pay for all the up charges. They even charge for carry on. They also charge for printing out boarding pass at airport. Pick your seat and that costs more too. Seating is minimal cushion and they do not recline."
Cons: "That you have to pay for a seat, pay for carry on and pay for a cup of coffee!!!! Ridiculous! Will never fly spirit again! First and last time!"
Cons: "Missed my flight because of driver and couldn't b refunded my money nor another flight I won't buy another ticket from spirit no more"
Pros: "On time boarding - friendly staff - price friendly."
Cons: "Pockets in seats too small to put anything - no Spirit card in pocket to see what items to purchase - unclear instructions and not too friendly staff when arriving at airport to know how to get bag checked - boarding pass would not display on email to print"
Pros: "I liked the cabin crew and the pilot."
Cons: "I didn't like the experience up to the point where I got on the plane. First the flight was delayed, these things happen though so I wasn't that upset about it. Then we got there an hour and forty minutes before departure and waited in line for baggage for an hour only to be told we were in the wrong line. Then we were directed to the correct line and waited another 20 minutes for baggage. Thankfully there wasn't a line for the security check and we made it to the gate with 5 minutes to spare. Needless to say we will never be flying this airline again."
Pros: "Clean, simple, comfortable"
Pros: "prices. it was a good value and can't complain about anything."
Pros: "The crew was nice overall."
Cons: "I did not like the hiding fees Spirit charges like a seat fee? if I'm paying for the flight and it is mandatory to seat then why am I being charged a seat fee? or we do have the option to stand? & it's bad enough we are forced to pay for our 1 bag but this airline also is charging for us to bring a carry on we place on our feet? it's ridiculous and disgraceful to nickel & dime your customers. Also, the planes are very outdated, for the way they are charging for every little move you make at least spirit should spend the extra money on upgrades."
Cons: "I didn't like being charged $55 for a carry on."
