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: "Good flight and convenient"
Cons: "More flight options"
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: "Good leg room Good coffee"
Cons: "No iPads for rent. No in seat tv screens Seats are hard"
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: "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: "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"

Almost 6 hours delayed due to a broken plane. 2 hours inside the plane waiting without food or beverages. Lost my first night in NYC.

Baggage delayed even though both the flights were delayed.

All good

First class and crew checked on me once to distribute food but never came back to collect garbage. Found myself getting up to throw away trash because they collected it from everyone around me. Also never came back to ask if I wanted a refill on my drink or if I was content; I was watching a movie so I was awake.

Pros: "Yes, turned out perfect"
Cons: "Awesome accomodations, delta really cares about your needs. Thank you!"
Pros: "The crew did a great job and I enjoyed the movies."
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "I’m skinny and 5’2” and I felt squashed. Like I was in a dollhouse. The space is too small, it’s too uncomfortable. I couldn’t take my zip front sweater off. The seats and space are not proportional to humans."
Pros: "Pilot and staff were informative and great"
Cons: "I was forced to upgrade to first class by Air France stuff in Athens which they Deceive me not telling me that the first class was not for the entire trip to JFK! If I was informed I would not spend the extra money to flight on an economy “seat” which was not comfy seats for the entire trip"
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "Flight didn’t leave Atlanta until after 8pm. Delta couldn’t/wouldn’t do anything to help with replacement flights to Madrid despite we were supposed to have 3 1/2 hours layover and had less than zero (the flight out left before the flight into Zurich was deplaned."
Pros: "Service was great."
Cons: "It was a shortest duration flight of the three so I couldn’t point out here what was lacking. Thank you!"
Pros: "Lift off and landing was excellent"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The staff handled the situation very well."
Cons: "The delays put me arriving at 4am. Missed a half day of work, and was practically useless the last half of the day. I understand things go wrong, but they blamed the weather and the other airlines were getting planes in and out just fine. Even Frontier Airlines at least offers a meal voucher for del"
Cons: "No customer service they do not care and it shows"
Pros: "On time arrival is always appreciated."
Cons: "Overhead compartment jammed with someone else's carry on. We paid for "comfort seating" and I frankly didn't see any difference - if there was more room on those seats, it was small enough I couldn't SEE it."
Pros: "Grateful Delta still has drink and snack service. Also grateful to still be able to bring a carry on on board. Good movie selections."
Pros: "The flight crew was as positive as possible."
Cons: "It was very late"
Cons: "Let was a typical flight. About all you can hope for is that it is on time. That makes it excellent."
Pros: "VERY small plane and small narrow seats"
Cons: "Yes...not change my flight at the last minute and causing me to miss my connecting flight. Then making me reschedule my flight with only options that I now have (2) layover and then arrive in Korea another day later, that then caused me to miss my college orientation day!"
Cons: "All was good"
Pros: "Free messaging during flight was REALLY nice!!! Smooth flight, early arrival, good coffee, variety of drinks, entertainment system worked very well and fast."
Cons: "Seat bottom cushion was not comfortable, also I think my seat was broken as any time I leaned forward it returned to upright position. Food was good but need more snack for a long haul flight. Needed more drink offers between meals."
Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "Chinese Eastern did not try to help and solve my problem."
Pros: "I liked that military boarded first."
Cons: "I think disabled US Veterans should board with active duty and retired military"
Pros: "Seat confort"
Cons: "Food and drink service"
Pros: "Everything ran smoothly. No issues. Short flight. I was comfortable. The Biscoff and Ginger Ale was fine as always."
Cons: "No entertainment in the cheap seats. Free WiFi but I couldn’t connect to anything. But I had my Kindle..."
Cons: "Left 30 minutes late from SLC."
Cons: "The monitors kept on freezing"
Pros: "No lines at the baggage drop off. No lines at TSA. Efficient and organized boarding. Seat area was clean. No delay, friendly energetic flight attendants."
Cons: "Lots of turbulence on the last 20 minutes of the flight. Captain had warned us. Nothing they can control though."
Cons: "None"
Cons: "My mother spent the entire day in the airport while they rescheduled the flight 4 times. Delta still hasn't contacted me or sent me the voucher that was promised."
Pros: "The staff was wonderful and the flight was smooth"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Ditto!"
Cons: "Horribly uncomfortable on plane! Need more room!"
Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "The comfort and attention on the part of the cabin crew of the flight was quite good."
Cons: "What I did not like was the process to go to the assigned air terminal in El Salvador, the process was slow and we took the flight at the end of the last one. The same was the process from Los Angeles to Seattle that was our scale. Process too long and go back through security, the boarding gate was almost closed. I think that for these cases they should leave more time for the stopovers that come from international flights. For my part I did not choose this option, since I was traveling with a person with mobility problems and separated the group for admission to the process of entering the USA."
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."
Pros: "Arrived early"
Cons: "Seat comfort. Interior is a little dated now."
Pros: "The quick flight was nice, the flight attendants were super sweet and kind and were willing to give me extra snacks when I requested for them. No screens on this flight, but understandable since it was such a short flight :)"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Boarding process"
Pros: "The flight was on time."
Cons: "This was an almost 6 hour long flight, LAX to OGG. The aircraft was older and for a 6 hour flight, they really should use a bigger and newer aircraft. The entertainment systems on the back of the seat worked sporadically and the PA system was too loud and every time the PA system was used while we had our headsets on, it was excruciating We had no warning in order to remove our headsets before it blasted into our ears. We were amazed that after paying a considerable sum for our tickets and being in the air for 6 hours, there was limited meal service and we were required to purchase a sandwich in order to eat. I fly Delta frequently and this was by far the worse flight I can remember."
Pros: "For a short flight, they gave it drinks and snacks."
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "Crew was courtesy"
Cons: "1hour delay from departing LAX runway - not good"
Pros: "Flight was delayed for over 6 hours. Not an ideal way to spend the day."
Pros: "Flight attendant had nice attitude."
Cons: "I asked for an aisle seat to provide relief to my right leg. I was given an aisle on my left. This was compounded by sitting next to a man so large that part of my space was taken, and this was Delta Comfort. Had I been given the requested seat, I would not have the sore neck and back I now have from leaning for 2 hours."
Pros: "Fast boarding, everyone nice."
Cons: "Wifi was yo and down the whole flight, about 20 times, so kids were not entertained."
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: "Crew remained positive and apologetic for the long delay."
Cons: "Lack of notice that there was no Pilot, maybe let people know so we can be less stressed about leaving as well as arriving on time when others depend on you to."
Cons: "Everything that could have gone wrong with my flights, went wrong. On my way from LA to Raleigh (through Atlanta), I was affected by the weather conditions at Atlanta. I understand that the weather is beyond Delta's scope of control, but customer service is not. I had to wait in line at LAX for 8 hours to even get information on what had happened, and what solutions were available. The customer service call center was collapsed, and at the airport counters at one point there was ONLY ONE DELTA REPRESENTATIVE serving a line of more than 100 upset customers. This IS Delta's fault, and it is unacceptable. This definitely was under Delta's control, but in order to save a few dollars in overtime for emergency staff Delta was willing to let its customers make terribly long lines, miss their flights, their connections and consequently their commitments. It is disappointing to observe how Delta believes that a few dollars saved on extra staff and emergency measures can offset the irreparable long term damage to its business due to upset customers. My way back from Raleigh to Los Angeles was also a disaster. Without any type of explanation and nothing more than an email announcing the change, the nonstop flight I bought was replaced by a 1-stop flight with connection in Atlanta. This was NOT THE PRODUCT I PURCHASED. There is a reason I paid a premium for a nonstop flight, and Delta did not hesitate in providing me with a less valuable product without any explanation or refund. Delta prioritizes its operational metrics - an obsession to fill and overbook its capacity - over its customers' experience, one again under the foolish belief that short term savings in any way offset the long term damage of disappointed and alienated customers. I will NEVER FLY DELTA AGAIN. I will do whatever I can to transmit my experience to everyone I know. At a time where major airline carriers are in the spotlight due to abusive practices (i.e. the United passenger case), I still find hope in knowing that alternatives such as Southwest still put their customers first, over the ethereal benefits that a few-dollar savings in operational expenses can provide."
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 ramp agents and crew were excellent and they were professional."
Cons: "Flying in first class and watching all the economy passengers dragging multiple carry ons to save a baggage fee"
Pros: "Delayed by 55 minutes in 10 or 20 minute increments as they waited for a crew."

Pros: "No seat not comfortable."
Cons: "No legroom."
Pros: "Seat accommodations were great Gate assignments at airport should be confirmed before the plane arrived"
Cons: "Planning"
Pros: "I liked the price and that it was a direct flight"
Cons: "Everyone was moved around a lot to try to social distance so I was closer to more people than I would have been on a regular flight."
Cons: "The ticket lady was rude just nasty and upset for no reason."
Pros: "Crew was very good and friendly."
Cons: "I would have appreciated a “free snack & cola”."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "Fast boarding. Crew were pleasant."
Cons: "Free beverages"
Pros: "Everything was perfect. New plane, super clean!! Even though the seats don't recline, they're still quite comfortable. I love how wide the aisle is...people have plenty of room to move around."
Pros: "The crew was great. The flight arrived early and boarding was smooth. Seats were not that great. Would definitely fly with them again."
Cons: "A free beverage and snack."
Cons: "Unfriendly Flight attendants"
Cons: "Be on time, 3 hour delay."
Pros: "Quick"

Cons: "Everything is extra, even water or soda. Seats are narrow so glad im not a heavier person"
Cons: "Delayed flight"

Cons: "Media has not been reflective of my great experience."
Cons: "Lousy airline. Left gate late and unfriendly crew. Wanted to charge me for carry on."
Pros: "To be honest nothing"
Cons: "Missed flight any no one was willing to help us pure BS"
Pros: "Great airport for getting to Florida. Good prices"
Pros: "Cheap fare, nice crew, clean plane"
Cons: "Small seating, small snacks , extra charges for anything"
Pros: "Everyone from desk to gate to crew were very friendly. I like alla carte airlines for thier value. I dont need a free soda for and extra $100 ticket price."
Cons: "Needs better organization during boarding. Everyone piles up near the gate. Thry can copy Southwest and make the process smoother."
Pros: "Crew was friendly, seats were very tight. Have to pay for water."
Pros: "Like the small airport quick boarding!"
Cons: "Not lots of leg room, no reclining seats, bummer everything costs extra even water. But ok for price"
Cons: "I understand that Allegiant has a pricing structure to implement, but forcing passengers to keep personal items between their feet when most of the overhead compartments were empty was just insulting and ridiculous - not to mention dangerous. In the event of extreme turbulence (or worse), all those personal items would be flying around the cabin."
Pros: "Although we were late to our gate, the Allegiant staff made sure that we were able to board our plane on time."
Cons: "Flight delayed 3 hours coming in and 5 hours going back. This is unacceptable. I will never fly Allegiant Airlines again."
Cons: "Flight was delayed almost 3 hours and the plane itself was noisy."
Cons: "I flew to my "surprised" 50th bday party with family and to meet more family. The aircraft problems overheated engine, caused us to get out of the plane, move all luggages and wait foe a new plane that also had to be cooled off before reboarding. We were tired and hungry. Missed my bday with family. Very very disappointed."
Pros: "Allegiant is a great flying experience! A little bit of a wait at BLV,but that will be fixed once they get the other TSA checking completed. VLP was a smooth and easy experience!"
Cons: "We weren't given a menu in the Kayak App to choose seats or bags at purchase. Kayak needs to rectify this. It caused us to spend more money on our bags especially..."
Cons: "7 hour delay. Giving us delays in increments so we couldn't make a decision to leave."
Pros: "Nothing. We were scheduled to fly back to Vegas at 7:07 then delayed to 8:30 then 10 pm then 11:25 pm now 1:15 am. This is unbelievable, unacceptable and ridiculous! And I have to work the next day. This is unacceptable! I just received another update that now we're leaving at 1:45 am . Please do not, again do not use Allegheny EVER again!!"
Cons: "So many delays. This airline is unreliable, unprofessional! Ridiculous! Please read my comments above. Do not use Allegiant!"
Cons: "2 hour delay, plus a filthy plane with bloody toilet seat, completely bathroom fail."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "We sat for five hours waiting for a thunderstorm to end on a hot plane with no drinks."
Pros: "We were supposed to have boarded for 5:00, flight was at 6pm. They were missing 1 crew member and could board the plane. She showed up, then they made a announcement that the Oakland flight will be delayed till 8:10 takeoff. I was able to get on a flight to Stockton Airport without problem. They wouldnt tell me what was wrong, and i didnt want to chance that it was the last dlight to Oakland and went with Stockton. The flight was good, you have to pay for your water."
Cons: "They would tell me the problem with the plane."
Pros: "I arrived less then 5 hours late"
Cons: "No free peanuts, no free pritzells,no tv show, no movie"
Pros: "At least I arrived to Oakland eventually. A one hour flight turned into a 7 hour wait and flight"
Cons: "7 hours from Vegas to Oakland. I could have driven. I deserve a reufind voucher"
Pros: "Flight crew was very kind"
Cons: "The security crew made me go through security twice and made my girlfriend and 15 month old daughter stand while they searched her bag"
Pros: "Direct flight much better not having to change planes."
Cons: "Everything was fine on this flight would be nice to have Wi-Fi on planes."
Pros: "It's like taking the public bus during rush hour. Organized chaos. But I guess you literally get what you pay for so, yeah. The crew was awesome though. No qualms there."
Cons: "Disorganized boarding. Even the extra room seats are cramped. Bathrooms are a step up from a porta potty. DO NOT SIT NEAR THEM unless you plan on holding your breath the while flight."
Pros: "I didn't like anything about them"
Cons: "They made me pay 100 dollars for two bags that would of fit under the seat"
Pros: "Everything was fine"
Cons: "Hard landing"
Pros: "Having to bug hotel staff to make sure to print boarding passes to avoid a $5 charge for each...having to pay for carry-on bags in advance and then unstuff them in the cramped aisles while boarding because the overhead compartments were too small...flight delays on each leg of the trip...staff that seemed lobotomized...seats that have a bar jamming into your lower back and don't recline.... etc., etc, etc, etc, Plus stupid coporate name and a logo that's hard on the eyes! ALLEGIANT SUCKS from its nose to its tail fin."
Pros: "Easy to navigate"

The staff is very nice.

Cons: "The flight left late, and got into San Diego late. By the time we landed I was unable to get my rental car. The car rental places were closed."
Pros: "I did not like anything about this trip. The check in process was a pain. The boarding was chaos... (Of course, same 2 careless ladies were in charge."
Cons: "I did not like anything about this trip. The check in process was a pain. The boarding was chaos... (Of course, same 2 careless ladies were in charge)."
Cons: "Wasn't able to check in due to frontier merchant difficulty and couldn't get on the flight wouldn't allow to pay for seats"
Pros: "They were on time arriving to raleigh"
Cons: "The TSA agent were rude!"
Pros: "During the flood we had to go around the storm and camping was good to keep us informed of the status"
Cons: "The flight was delayed before we left and there was no update on the boarding area or on the app which is where I go to try to find out information is often difficult to maneuver with in the app.."
Pros: "crew is always resilient"
Cons: "Our plane was on time coming into Denver. We ended up changing gates due to another flight. Instructions for changes were not easily understood on the overhead. We ended up approx 1 hour late arriving in Salt Lake City. An additional cost of $20 was added to my shuttle as I was unable to claim bag until after 1 am."
Pros: "Very smooth flight"
Pros: "Great flight"
Cons: "Charged for every little thing"
Pros: "The pilot got me safely to Atlanta"
Cons: "The airplane was very filthy The seat in front of me was very dirty I asked the pilot for a sanitizer napkin he said that they didnt have anything. I asked for a paper towel so I could clean the seat and it took him 25 minutes to bring it. It just seem like the plane was really nasty Th 2 guys in my row saw the same thing"
Pros: "No snacks, no movies,...great fare! Flights on time!!"
Cons: "Pay for all snacks. Cup of water free"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"
Cons: "Seats were about 1.5" thick plastic, rigid, with no padding. Felt like a military transport. Advertised as the cheapest fare, but with the luggage addon for carryon and checked - was not the cheapest"
Pros: "Flight was on time!"
Cons: "How we don't get a free luggage. Like who travels without a suitcase?"
Cons: "The only bright spot was your great crew. First, Frontier doesn't even staff its ticket counter at MCI, so, heaven forbid there's an accident on the highway and we're a couple of minutes late, we can't even get through security. That's beyond annoying. Frontier charges for everything. For seats. For bags. For drinks. For food. So, after a haphazard boarding process and ending up in a middle seat, I flew on a lawn chair. Thankfully, it was a short flight. I enjoyed a tiny cup of water and opted not to spend $2.99 on another beverage. All of that, I knew about in advance and expected. I was thinking "at least my flight was cheap..." At the end, Southwest would have even been cheaper. I also didn't realize Frontier couldn't even be bothered by the basics. For example, opening the door when we arrived in Denver. We were on time. We waited on a gate, which is annoying, but not unusual, but then, after we pulled up to the gate, we waited ANOTHER 15-20 minutes in a roasting hot plane. JUST for someone to open the door to permit us to deplane. One of my fellow passengers quipped: "Are they going to make us pay to get off the plane?" Funny, sarcastic, but a sentiment many of your passengers shared. We finally exited the plane, and I waited on my bags--the ones I'd spent $75 to check. There was no information. No announcement. No update. The supervisor truly didn't even know what was going on. An HOUR AND A HALF later, the supervisor said, "I think your bags are still on the plane. We're short staffed, so another supervisor and I will go help unload them" Seriously? At what point did unloading bags become optional? We finally got our bags, and I'm the one who finally told the supervisor that bags from Kansas City were beginning to arrive. She announced it to the rest of the grumpy crowd. It was much worse with the cranky kids waiting on their strollers and carseats. I fly this route often. I arrived home AFTER I usually do on the much later Southwest and United flights. My fiance and I are traveling back and forth DEN-MCI/MCI-Denver often. We no longer even look at Frontier as an option when booking our tickets"
Cons: "The seats are so narrow.and leg room almost non-existent. I'm 5'4" and can't even imagine what it is like for taller folks."
Cons: "Too much nickle and diming. Website confusing"
Pros: "Boarding was pretty quick. Denver crew and employees were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Did not see a frontier employee till ten minutes before boarding. The employees all seamed pissed off, including the flight crew. This was all KC leg. Just before landing the flight crew allowed someone to use the latrine. After they had already made their final pass thur of the cabin. The young man returned to his seat about 30 seconds before the pilot announced, "prepare to land.""
Pros: "It was inexpensive."
Cons: "I did not know that I was going to be charged to take even a carry-on on the flight. That added $70 to my total. Had I known that I would have gone with a more comfortable airline for less that included a carry-on."
Pros: "It was quick"
Cons: "The charge for carry on"
Pros: "A bargainprice can be had if you have no luggage. Be prepared to sit up straight on fairly hard seats that don't recline. I cannot complain about spending a week at my daughters, where I already have clothes, for $91."
Cons: "I cannot complain about spending a week at my daughters, where I already have clothes, for $91."
Pros: "MCI departure efficient"
Cons: "DIA tarmac delay, unable to get to gate"
Pros: "The price until I had to pay for a carry-on bag"
Cons: "Very few things are appealing about this airline."
Cons: "Couldn't move the seat back at all. Couldn't sleep."
Cons: "Both flights were very late. No TSA pre-check. Baggage claim was a total NIGHTMARE. Half of flights luggage showed up on carousels that were wrong. Agent in baggage claim kept apologizing for delays and bags on wrong carousels. She was ready to have a stroke. Bet she quit today. No options to pick own seats unless you paid more for the seats."
Pros: "I like the convince of the flight."
Cons: "I don't like the fact that we started charging 30 for a carry on. I get it. You get the ticket for cheap and upcharge but charging for the carry on is a way to lose business. I might as well fly spirt at least I know up front that I have to pay for something that's already with me. Very frustrating on a return flight."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything. Very long flight delays, bad customer service, aggressive attitude of flight attendants, uncomfortable seats in the planes and hidden costs every step of the way."
Pros: "Friendly and couteous"
Cons: "How the seat selection goes, having to pay more to have a different selection"
Pros: "Simple boarding process, friendly crew."
Cons: "Paying for beverages? Ridiculous. I rarely fly Frontier (unless I have to) because they charge for everything."
Pros: "I like the low fare and the non-stop flight. The low fares made it possible for me to fly to Atlanta, GA, for an emergency, and money wasn't an issue!"
Pros: "I liked the price that I paid for the ticket!"
Cons: "I didn't like having to pay for the bags checked or carry on, or the seat, soda, snacks, and anything else you might want."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "Cheap non stop and we arrived 10 minutes early"
Cons: "Ticket counter attendant was rude and threatened me after asking about the carry on policy. A passenger was arrested and escorted off the flight and the turbulence was so bad someone threw up. The crew and pilot made no comment or even acknowledge either incident while boarding or while on the flight. I will never fly on Frontier Airlines again."
Pros: "Cheap flight"
Cons: "Extra charges for baggage"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats, drinks aren't complimentary, paying for carry on luggage"
Pros: "The experience we had...the first going was almost 6 hrs delayed but coming back was right on time overall excellent."
Cons: "That we were not offered as much as a drink of water after we were offered to purchase something and declined. Not good for Frontier"
Cons: "Seats. Fees associate with bags. Customer service"
Pros: "We landed safely."
Cons: "3 hours late. Not their fault but not mine either. Then they have the nerve to ask me to BUY a soda on the plane for like $3. They should have comped everyone a beverage for the long wait. Told us the wrong bag claim area. No smiles from the crew."
Pros: "Getting off the plane."
Cons: "For starters, we scanned our tickets at one gate and boarded at another. First time I've ever seen that. There weren't enough Gate Agents to manage things so I waited in line for 40 minutes to pay your ridiculous $60 carry on fee. By the time someone was able to help me, my boarding group had already boarded. I ended up paying the fee and was forced to gate check my bag anyway as all the overhead space was taken up by the time I got on the plane. Nice work on your end milking that $60 from me. Since I wasn't able to check in ahead of time, I was stuck in the middle seat (I'm 6'5"). I would have happily paid an extra $250 to not sit in the middle, but thats besides the point. Just as I'm about to close my eyes, your stewardess gets on the PA and starts hawking Frontier credit cards for 20 minutes. If that wasnt bad enough, she had the audacity to shove an application in my face and remind me 'its the best credit card in the industry!' The credit card pitch and "buy 3 get 1 free' happy hour offers made the flight feel more like a sad Panama City spring break than a return flight after a long business trip. Alas! We landed at ORD 'on-time' which is always good for Frontier's stats. Unfortunately, we sat on the tarmac for 30+ minutes waiting for someone to man the sky bridge. Oh, and it was a nice touch deplaning in the international terminal returning from a Kansas City flight. Long story short, Frontier is now in the same category for me as Spirit Airlines. You fooled me once, but you wont fool me again. I'm just glad it was a one-way ticket. PS: when did airlines start soliciting tips for the flight crew? In all my years of traveling, I have never seen that before. Embarrassing."
Pros: "I didn't receive a smile or even an acknowledgement from flight attendents. Couldn't hear the safety speech at all. Annunciate and speak clearly would be my suggestion. This person sounded like they had a mouth full of mashed potatoes. I won't fly frontier again even though it used to be my preference. The baggage fee, not even a complimentary drink?? Uninterested staff. Very poor customer service. However, the pilot got us to destination on time and w/out mishap, hence my OK rating. Otherwise super disappointed in crew and staff."
Pros: "not much"
Cons: "poor customer service overall. On return trip, required to pay a "carry on bag fee" of $45 which is nearly double what most airlines charge to check a bag. was a total surprise charge, as we were not charged on the trip out. Return trip - sat on runway for 40 minutes before take off. Made up some time in the air. Upon arrival, sat again for > 30 min before a gate opened. dreadful. Didn't offer beverages without a charge - had to ask if you wanted water (not offered). Purchase snack menu items - very poor selection."
Pros: "The low price of the fare"
Cons: "1. All the added charges even for a refreshment 2. The obnoxiously loud noises coming from the plane mechanics 3. A group of 5 that were drunk, belligerent, loud, and inappropriate 4. Lack of cleanliness (old tissues & trash stuffed in the seat pocket, trash on the floor, looked like throw up in our aisle-our entire aisle asked to move seats) 5. Stewardess speakerphone so loud It was painful"
Cons: "I didn't like the terrible turbulence which we had on May26th. I know that was not the airlines fault, but it seemed excessive to be on the tarmac for over 2 hours and being over three hours late in getting to the gate. It was the airlines fault that I had to pay $40.00 to check a small bag and that we only got a half cup of water after the long delay."
Cons: "5 pm flight. Waited from 3:30-8:00 pm for them to tell us the flight was cancelled. No communication whatsoever. I live 2.5 hours away and was not able to get a hotel voucher. Workers were very rude and unhelpful. Will never be flying frontier again and will be sure to tell every one I know to do that same."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "At no time was I made aware during my booking that I would be charged for a carry on either. The crew was great. Did not like not being offered even water."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight Attendant was rude"
Cons: "We landed 30 minutes early and got off the plane 15 minutes late. Of course statistically Frontier is going to say that they were early to tote their efficiency. Not so efficient when you have to sit on the plane for 45 minutes while your ride from the airport circles around wasting gas because Frontiers website indicates you have already landed."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Customer service was rude. Seats were ironing boards with pleather covers, we were all especially jammed in. Airline crew was not pleasant. The best thing was when it was over."

I think it is lacking some normal customer service like free water and wifi.

Pros: "Easy"
Cons: "The seats are not very good"
Cons: "VERY unclear baggage rules - meaning I paid $100 extra for a checked bag after booking, and then also unnecessarily paid an extra $55 for a backpack at the airport because there was not notification on-screen that it was allowed as a personal bag. I then could not get a refund at the baggage counter because they don't do transactions. I am now trying to work out how to get a refund from Australia. I would have been better off taking any other airline and it would have been cheaper than these extra fees. I am so disappointed."
Pros: "Worst customer service I've ever experienced, and I fly multiple times per month."
Cons: "Spirit Airlines wouldn't let me board my flight, after checking in on my phone and it telling me had to pick up boarding pass from counter. Got to counter 43 minutes before departure time (no security line, could have made it to gate 40 minutes before boarding time). Spirit Airlines staff refused to allow 13 passengers to board the flight, as we all stood there shocked. They said their systems do not allow them to print boarding passes within 45 mins of the flight. They probably had over-booked the flight. Everyone was entirely out the money, had to book new flights. Cost me and my wife $1,000."
Pros: "Nothing, never got on the plane."
Cons: "I was stuck in traffic before the flight and arrived approximately 50min before the flight. By the time I finished fighting with the self check-in machine and talked to a person, it was about 45min before the flight and I was told I was too late and the plane had already boarded and was full. I asked if I could get on the next flight, but I was told the next flight from LAX to Oakland wasn't until 7AM the next morning. I wound up having to buy a last-minute, one-way ticket on American Airlines just to get where I was going. The man at the counter was very rude and dismissive about the whole thing."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "The worst experience ever. Will never fly this terrible airline again. The worst customer service on the phone and at the airport. This ticket was booked for me for a quick trip and I needed up rebooking my return on another airline the same day because Spirit is that terrible."
Pros: "No delays. Boarding was efficient but not much else. Very basic."
Cons: "I wanted to bring a bag as hand luggage and had to pay $46 each way. I've flown loads and this is the first airline who has charged for carry on."
Pros: "Here's the thing... With Spirit you know what you're getting. It has the least leg-room of any airline in North America and virtually no services. If you're bringing a bag of any kind you may be better off traveling with a competing airline. There won't be complimentary snacks or beverages and there won't be in flight entertainment. Make sure you bring your own, and be sure you know how long you can be comfortable on a flight that feels more like a long distance bus than an airline. That said, if you can get away with what you can carry in a small backpack and you aren't bothered by the possibility of cancellations or delays then nothing beats the price of a Spirit flight. The flight attendants and other staff are consistently friendly and helpful, and improvements have been made in their on-time record. Spirit is low cost, low frills. You get what you pay for, and if all you're paying for is transportation this is a good option."
Cons: "I have been flying since I was 5 years old. THIS WAS THE WORST flight (experience) thus far! Flight and boarding on time, BUT THE MOST ANNOYINGLY UNPROFESSIONAL FLIGHT CREW took over once on the aircraft. This made the uncomfortable crampped overpriced for what you're not getting flight a nightmare. There was horrible turbulence as well, which the airline is not responsible for; However our captin did'nt address the passengers at all. And the completely UNPROFESSIONAL rude chatty and hard to understand screeching non english speaking voices from two women kept coming over the speakers disrupting what little peace one would try to focus on while being jolted around like on a rollercoaster. You some people were ACTUALLY motuon sick, scared, and nervous BUT they didn't stop talking long enough to notice. I only noticed the men working with passengers to maintain some calm by displaying professionalism."
Cons: "After flying a dozen times with a suit bag and a backpack that fits under my seat, I've never had a problem The lady checking tickets gave me an ultimatum, either you fit your suit bag in your backpack, or you have to pay $59 for a carry-on bag. No ticket checker has ever said this to me in the past. She was rude, direct and didn't leave me with any other choice. She ignored me after she gave me the ultimatum, while I'm asking if this was a new policy. She gave me the cold shoulder. I was very frustrated, luckily the suit bag fit in my backpack. Then when I got on the plane there was so much space in the overhead bins, so I took out my suit bag and placed it in an overhead bin while the crew was watching. The crew didn't say anything. Your teams need to be more persistent with policy."
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."
Cons: "Flight was 2 1/2 hours late. Big front seats only barely bigger than regular seats. Flight attendants were more like salesmen - pushing the spirit credit card. Flight attendant very brisk as I initially sat down. I wanted to get something from my bag before stowing it in the Compartment above me. She literally took it out of my hands and said I couldn't have the bag out. The plane was still boarding, I was standing in front of my seat, not in the aisle, so passengers could continue to pass by. Very rude."
Pros: "1) Friendliness and openness of the crew 2) good legroom (we paid extra for it)"
Cons: "1) web site charged our credit card to check a bag, but at ticket counter the agent insisted there was no record of this. We had to pay again to check our one bag! Now, we have to pursue a refund. 2) boarding pass was unreadable by the TSA scanner. 3) ticket agent didn't know the seating on the plane; insisted that we had reserved a window seat, which proved false. 4) seats very uncomfortable; no lumbar support. 5) surprisingly costly baggage fees, which erased the initial ticket price advantage. 6) $9 club name is misleading -- sounds like it costs $9.."
Pros: "Some of the Spirit crew did try to assist me and the other passengers."
Cons: "I was unable to check in online and when I tried to use a Kisok I was told to talk to an agent. i waited in a very long line, was told I might not make it and that they wouldn't hold the plane for me (or the five other people who had the same problem as me) but if I made it through security in time we could. When we all made it to the gate they closed the doors and wouldn't let us board even though we were there before takeoff. (One girl was even there before they closed the doors and they wouldn't let her through. Spirit changed our flights to the next available plane (11hours away) for no charge but I bought a new plane ticket with another airline."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything that Spirit has done has been mediocre. I bought a ticket for my employee to fly to New Orleans and he showed up at the kiosk 40 minutes before the flight and was not able to get on so I had to pay $15 to reschedule for today and he showed up at the same time and still they said that their computers were down and they couldn't check anybody in and there's multiple people angry that they're boarding passes want working and so now we have to figure out how he can get to New Orleans and actually make it there. It'll be three days of not being able to get there because of spirits unethical and subpar customer service. I will never choose to fly Spirit again after this"
Pros: "Departure was on time, Flight was pretty smooth. Arrived & landed a few minutes early, but had to wait/taxi for from 11:12p -"
Cons: "Kois was not working. So machine printed out a ticket that said see agent. We proceeded to a sign that said Agent Assistance & stood in line. Waited in line for about 15 minutes, then an agent announced we were in the wrong long & to stand in a different line. We and other Spirit customers experienced the same treatment, very rude & no positive spirit from Ticket agents. We were in line for an additional 30 minutes before we were called to receive service, get our boarding passes. We were not Preassigned seats & had to proceed to the gate counter to get our seat assignment, but there were no Spirit Agent present. There were about a dozen customers waiting in line but was not serviced until towards the end of boarding. As a executive manager of a non-profit organization I had to be observant, & not once did the 2 female agents smile or seem to be happy to assist their customers with enthusiasm. When we entered the plane, the first male flight attendant did not even acknowledge us & several other passengers as he was on his phone texting. The value of Spirit was definitely NOT experienced today."
Pros: "Other than my issue, Spirit airlines was a pleasant to fly with. Comfortable, good crew."
Cons: "I didn't like that I had to pay for a carry on - since I had a roundtrip flight, not only did I have to pay a $60 fee for a carry on, but I had to do it twice. That cost me twice than the flight ticket itself. Normally flights allow for one personal item, which I had in the form of a backpack, but I also had a carry on, which carried the rest of my clothing since I've been traveling around the States. It would have been nice if the airline included the potential cost of a carry on when I purchased the ticket rather than surprise me with two $60 fees for my one carry on bag."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The fact my flight was delayed, they wouldn't let me check in after their computers froze at the airport and caused me to miss the one hour before cut off time limit to check in. They made me take a different flight the next day and charged me a $25 fee to do it all because they wouldn't check me in and therefore had to miss my flight. The fee for having a carry on bag is redic since they have the room like any other plane for it in the overhead compartment. My new flight the next day was delayed also (over 3 hours) so I took another flight so I didn't miss my event. Spirit then cancelled my return flight days later because I skipped the outbound flight, they auto cancel all of your future flights. So I then show up in the morning to the airport not knowing they cancelled my flight, they don't tell you in any way, stranded and told I have to buy another ticket back for almost triple the price. The story goes on and on, absolute nightmare. I wish I would have known or gotten a refund to ease the blow."
Cons: "I would strongly consider adding warnings regarding spirit's iperation; I experienced 5 plus hours of delays on oak to lax flights; they aren't communicative, have horrible customer service and absolutely refuse to acknowledge they failed to meet even a minimum standard of care. One thing to have delays due to weather impacting all carriers; in this instance on both days all spirit flights were late, no other carriers impacted. I rarely respond to this sort of prompt but I fully expext at least a refund of my fare."
Pros: "Refunded my ticket with no issues"
Cons: "First, they cancelled my 8am flight at 10pm the night before with no notification. I happened to see it and call to rebook on the next flight, but if I hadn't been checking the flight status I'm not sure what would have happened when I got to the airport. Then, the 10am rebooked flight was delayed for over 2 hours - with basically no communication from the gate agents and no updates to the expected departure time. Ended up getting a refund and rebooking on Southwest - which was a perfectly smooth experience, huge contrast to the clusterf*** of flying Spirit."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "When buy through kayak link it takes you to the spirit page, where there's no spot to put in get TSA Precheck. When do all through phone, the boarding pass on the screen doesn't actually scan - only airline in the world where you still need a paper copy. After 50 mins in security line, the phone bar code didn't scan (can't use phone for spirit). Had to leave to get a paper boarding pass. Missed flight. I fly at least once a week every week. Have never missed a flight in my life (probably bc I had never flown with spirit before). Missed this flight! No refund, no airline credit (even if I got the airline credit I would let it expire to avoid flying with them again). Literally worst user experience I've ever had with an airline."
Cons: "Spirit airlines cancelled my return flight along with nine other flights that morning. Their were hundreds of passengers left stranded and had to fend for themselves to figure out away to get home. The majority had to spend anywhere from $400-$1000 on a one way ticket back on an alternate airline. Definitely my worst experience yet. Customer service was rude and it took five hours standing in line to talk to someone at the airport. I ended up having to fly to a different city and drive to an a half hours in the other direction to get my car that was at the airport I flew out of originally. Never Fly Spirit Airlines no matter how cheap the flight is. You'll end up paying a lot more in the long run when they cancel your flight. This airline will be out of business in less than a year. I guarantee it!"
Pros: "Nicole at Spirit corp who reversed the charge."
Cons: "Kayak didn't mention the luggage charge at all. Then Spirit didn't send me the required email though I called twice so by the time I got it the charge was fifty BOTH WAYS. I got that reveresed by corporate but the ticket counter people were AWFUL and uncaring and not just to me. Everyone in line was saying they would never use Spirit again. One woman was charged eight dollars to get a seat next to her toddler! Awful gouging airline. It costs one hundred dollars if you don't know and bring a suitcase to the plane without paying days before!"
Cons: "Plane was downgraded last minute and because there were less seats about 40 of us had to be re-booked on a flight out the next day. They comped hotel + food + cab expense and gave a voucher for a free ticket that had to be used within 1 yr, booked within 60 days. But it was overall shitty experience. When I went to use food voucher the next morning in the airport Coffee Bean they told me they didn't take them. And the hotel wasn't too close to the airport so more time spent in cab plus the hotel was sub par."
Cons: "My Luggage was 10 pounds over weight and I was forced to pay an extra $55 on top of the 50$ I payed for my bag. The attendant placed a Red Tag on my luggage stating that the bag was "Heavy" when getting my bag from the baggage claim I noticed that my handle on the side of my luggage was completely broken, as of a worker tried to grab my bag only from that handle! Which would be wrong still on the Red Tag placed on my bag States you should pick the bag up while bending your knees! This is not a cheap bag!"
Cons: "No complimentary drinks, snacks, or entertainment. Even on a 4+ hour flight, the most they could offer me was a cup of ice. No water, juice, soda, pretzels, peanuts, etc. If you wanted ANYTHING, you had to pay for it. Also, they charge $55 to bring a carry on and $50 to check bags. On both departure and return, I tried to do self check in at the kiosk, but error messages came up both times (despite accepting and charging my credit card) telling me to wait in line to see a cashier. So trying to take initiative and doing self check in was a waste of time and I still had to wait in line afterwards. Very dissatisfied with my experiences on Spirit Airlines. Flight was also late to take off, but there was no announcement revealing to updated expected time of arrival."
Pros: "I have flown to Florida via Spirit Airlines before so I kind of knew the fees that I was up against like paying for luggage and paying to reserve a seat. I understood that if I had a small enough bag that I could carry it on and save on the cost of a checked bag."
Cons: "I had a backpack sized bag that I use for college to put my books in. I was told that I needed to check in my bag because it had wheels and I was told that I had to pay a penalty because I didn't check my bag before security. $65!!! On my return flight, Spirit called and told me my flight was cancelled and offered me $40 for my troubles or I could pay for 2 more nights at my hotel and get their next available. I was outraged at their lack of service!! If I could find an earlier flight would they honor my ticket?They said they would charge me $100 penalty to change flights!!! I had to DRIVE HOME, 12 hours. Thanks Spirit."
Pros: "We showed up to the airport for a flight from Oakland to LA and the agent notified us that our flight was cancelled. This was on December 23rd, and they told us they could put us on another flight on December 25th! We were returning on the 26th so that was entirely unhelpful. They said the reason for the cancellation was weather in LA. But none of the other airlines were having any issues with their flights. We were flying at 9am and there was rain in LA at about 7pm. They offered to refund us, which we accepted. I was expecting to have to harangue them to actually get our money back, but the refund came through unprompted about a week later. We did not get reimbursed for our cabs to/from the airport, or for the cost of driving to LA."
Cons: "We spoke to multiple attendants, during check in and during boarding, many of which advised us incorrectly. During check in, we asked a Spirit employee if our bag was considered a Personal Item since Spirit charges for carry ons. They advised that we would be fine, and that since it was our only item it would count as a Personal Item. Perfect. Then we finally board the plane and it turns out our only piece of luggage cannot be considered a personal item and demanded we pay $65.00 for the carry on. The fee itself is not the issue, the misinformation is my main complaint. Had the original employee told us the correct information, we could have checked the bag for $55 during check in, instead of $65! during the boarding process. Not to mention it was unnerving holding up the line to board as I fished out my wallet. Anyways, better communication is definitely needed at Spirit Airlines."
Cons: "I got this ticket thinking that it was the final price. I got to the airport, the counter folks were very un-organized and un-attentive, took a while to get to the counter. Then was told i have to pay $50 for checking in my bag, otherwise will be $100 at the gate!! Not wanting to miss the flight i did not argue and paid and went to the gate. I had no idea that the charge was this high. At the gate and in the plane there were many passengers with the same bag as I had!!!! The counter people did not tell me i can take it the plane, they forced me to check the luggage in :-( First and Last time on Spirit airline for me!"
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: "When I see one bag per person, I assume it's like everywhere else and you have a personal item and one bag. So I had to pay $55 for my tiny suitcase to come on. Had I known, I would have packed differently. It got me so upset that I started to cry. Yes, I probably did not read carefully. But am I the only one to whom this has happened? I should have flown tried and true Southwest which does not nickle and dime you. Will know better next time. In all the trip cost me a lot more than I would have had I gone Southwest with a slightly higher fare."
Pros: "That there was a Virgin Loft flight club in the terminal, only used it because of the Spirit delay"
Cons: "Front counter is rude. I don't know if they just had a front counter person having a bad day but I've never experienced that with any airline. Then there was a flight delay of a minimum 2 hours due to a bad windshield? Great keep us safe, but good luck with finding someone at the gate or a service counter to give you an explanation of why it's delayed. Instead just wander aimlessly around the terminal looking for a Spirit employee. I then went to the Spirit website and it shows the flight as "on time", really?? At least give me an app or website that's accurate so I don't have to sit in front of the gate for 2 hours. When booking through Kayak there is no mention of pre-purchasing checked baggage so I was stuck with a $50 fee at the ticket counter! This is definitely not the "low price" airline unless you truly "travel naked". Save yourself some grief and ignore Spirit as a flight option."
Pros: "I was quite surprised at check-in to find that checking a bag cost $50 and a carry-on was an additional $55. I travel frequently and usually the first checked bag is free or $25, and a carry-on is free. I booked on Kayak and didn't see any notification that your additional fees were so much higher than the industry standard. It appears that your business model is to attract clients with low prices, then hit them with hefty additional charges at th airport, when it would be difficult for them to change plans. It worked this time, but I will never fly Spirit Airlines again. I suggest that you reconsider the way you treat your clients."
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: "Nothing"
Cons: "Up charge on everything. Rude customer service. Can't check in at the counter at least at LAX. Missed my flight and had to wait 7 hrs because only 3 of the 12 kiosks were operating at the agents wouldn't let me check in at the counter. By the time I got my ticket printed I had 43 minutes till my flight left. Waited in line just to have an agent tell me I was 2 mins too late. Last check in is 45 mins prior to flight and I had 43 mins left. Complete BS. I will not fly Spirit again. If you think I'm exaggerating read other reviews. Good luck!"
Cons: "The staff was rude from check-in to on the plane. The charge for my suitcase and weight of bag was ridiculous and never have I ever paid that much for a suitcase. My bag came back broken and open and I am missing few things from that pocket. I am very disatisfied with your team and my customer service and extra fees. I will never fly your airline again and could have definitely flown cheaper with a different airline. I believe you should put in bigger and bold type that people can not include purse as carry on and backpack because I had to put my purse in my bag to check it which meant my bag weighed more costing more. My flight was more than an international flight which is absurd. Your website should disclose that information more clear."
Pros: "The cost is excellent & staff was very friendly."
Cons: "Lack of communication. When printing out boarding pass, it flashed the flight was delayed @ 90 min, which I thought was weird. Just thought I'd check in later. When I called TSA in Kansas City I was told the same. So when I arrived at the airport they were announcing thaty flight was boarding, I went to baggage counter and was told I had to take my case on the plane, TSA security told me to take it to baggage counter. I told TSA I'd already been there, the 2 of them start arguing back and forth about my bag, if they would have taken my bag when I 1st went to turn it in, it would have been on the plane with me. However because they'd called final boarding, all my stuff got left in Kansas City. I've already called the airline to see if my bag made it to Vegas or not but haven't found out yet. As they have nt called me back. Oh the man in front of me was on my same flight & how nag made it on the plane. Extremely annoying for this to happen when it could've ALL been avoided as there was no one else behind me."
Pros: "I am Physian, I arrived at Oakland airport at 1pm for my flight at 1:47pm, I could not print my boarding pass because of a stupid policy that states 45 minutes is the cut off. After a humble plea to the staff who were really sooooo rude especially the supervisor Maria, they told me there is nothing they could do. I was so disappointed cos I was meant to be on call. I had to but a last minute one way ticket with south west that was boarding in 25 minutes. ...experience was like night and day, better and more courteous staff. Anyway,I will never fly Spirit again. It's not worth it."
Pros: "Gate person was very helpful got us on the flight early and we had great seats I am 6'4" my son who was in LV for basketball is 6'11" and she was great."
Cons: "At check in for our baggage it was a very long wait Michael who helped us put us on standby for an earlier flight gave us new boarding passes did not see that I had paid for a carry on bag so my boarding pass did not have a carry on. I also had a very hard time checking in for our flight and printing the boarding pass as the web page was down for almost 24 hours I wasted many hours trying to print the boarding pass and was very surprised about the charges for seats baggage and printing the boarding pass."
Cons: "After realizing how much extra I was going to pay for "buying" my seat, boarding pass, and my luggage, my checked bag weighed 2 pounds over. Well, there's another $25. I was pulled for a second security check which I guess I can't blame Spirit for but only after getting to my destination tonight did I realize that something fell out of the bin when the officer took my things to scan it again. Good bye cute make up bag. The flight was delayed and the gate changed several times before we actually boarded. Seats were very crowded and you had no room to move. Thank goodness it was only an hour flight."
Cons: "This trip was lousy. The ticket taker called everyone up to board 45 minutes early and the plane wasn't ready to board. The on board process was lacking in courtesy. The seats are WAY too narrow. I had an aisle seat and the stewardess knocked me in the head every time she passed which was over 30 times. The pilot announcements left me concerned for my safety. The flight attendants were required to yell annoying advertisements for 15 minutes even though the flight is only 75 minutes. And some weird teen sitting behind me kept putting his head between his knees and head butting the back of my chair. Flight crew couldn't care less. The best part of the flight was getting OFF!"
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"
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."
Cons: "Both flights were substantially delayed causing havoc in the schedules of those picking me up. They have this carryon policy that anything bigger than basically a handbag, you are charged $55 each way!!! This added $110 to my flight!!!! I ending up paying more than my other more sane and professional options. I should of flown Southwest.Then on the loudspeaker in the plane, they talk about what a great airline they are and that you should apply for their credit card. I have to say not one person filled out the application even though you got frequent flyer miles."
Cons: "cancelled flight and not enough customer service to deal with people"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Because their ticket counter was backed up and the machines were not working I got my ticket late, because I got my ticket late me and 10 other passengers missed boarding. We arrived when the plane was still there and connected to the walkway. They refused to let all of us board even though my sister was told that they would hold the plane for 5 or more. I had to fly to San Diego and then pay for a new flight on southwest. SOUTHWEST IS THE REAL MVP. Take my advice, never fly spirit. Also, 50 bucks per luggage per way, so one bag totaled 100 to fly it."
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."
Cons: "I dont see that I would ever use Spirit again. You book a ta low fare and incur many costs that build up and nearly double your fair. may as well book on another airline and get what you wanted in the first place for the same price. The staff were unprofessional, disrespectful, tired and unkempt. And the flight was delayed, and we were never given a reason. I needed to change my return flight. I was instructed that i would save money by doing it on line. I would have saved NO money, and was able to easily book a new fare for less money with another airline. #NO-Spirit Airlines"
Pros: "Polite professional seasoned flight attendants. Base ticket was cheap."
Cons: "Two and a half hours Late. 2 for $5 diet cokes. This flight did not have the new spirit seats. Had old style seats. Very cramped and tight. I felt baggage restrictions were over strong on the website. I paid for a carry-on because it said a personal item is a purse and a carry on is a back pack. Turns out small backpacks (i.e. Regular old backpack, not aluminum framed camping monstrositys) are perfectly fine. But alas " baggage charges are non-refundable. Sucker! Pay for seat choice at boarding time, surprise! Endure pushy credit card offer."
