Sat on ground at Lax for 40 min after landing because some one was at our gate. After a 3 1/2 hour flight it sucks to just sit there and wait for no reason that the pilot could give us. So much for ever getting out of the airport on time.
Everything was great until landed and had to wait 25 minutes to get into our gate! Can’t think of a good excuse for that on such a late, cross-country flight. Plenty of prep time!
Cons: "The pilot take off, navigation in the air, and landing were horrible ."
Pros: "Crew was fantastic. Seats are narrow in space, but more comfortable than other airlines."
Cons: "Drink and snack service, but captain was concerned about "bumps""
Cons: "So uncomfortable with tiny seats"
Pros: "Good flight, got home early."
Cons: "Hand out headphones, my phone doesn’t have compatibility."
Pros: "price great; direct flight;"
Pros: "On time, comfortable flight. Great crew and service."
Cons: "Nothing. Everything was great."
Pros: "They were awesome"
Cons: "Nothing I was at my best on the best airline and crew"
Cons: "5 hours late!!!!!! Delta sucks"
Pros: "We actually did not fly this route. We bought a car and drove home!"
Pros: "At the airport things were quite, security was fast. Boarding was fast and smooth. I’ve flown with delta a lot and also a lot of others (cheaper ones) and I’m always happy when I get a delta flight things are always calmer and less crowded!"
Pros: "Crew was great as always. Friendly and professional"
Cons: "We had a delay that complicated our getting home but all ended up OK"
Pros: "Boarding was fast"
Cons: "The seats were incredibly uncomfortable. This was a Comfort + seat. Very hard, unbearable for an overnight flight."
Pros: "Crew was amazing and super helpful."
Cons: "Just the fumes of fuel inside the cabin was nauseating. Never had similar issue with air travel before."
Pros: "First I don’t comment on these normally, but during our flight we had a medical emergency and the crew handled it with perfection. They kept a very calm atmosphere and handled passenger with great care and professionalism. I could not be more impressed."
Cons: "Leg room was lacking."
Pros: "New plane. Great movie selection. More stylish seats + bathroom. Overall very good and I think Delta has really made an effort to improve it's service. It's noticeable."
Cons: "Plane felt very dry compared to others. The electrical plug outlet jams right at around your knee level. Bread was cold and rock hard (seriously, can we not come up with a good solution for this?)."
Pros: "Left ontime great breakfast. Good service No complaints"
Cons: "I loved the trip No negative comments."
Pros: "Cabin service was decent"
Cons: "Food was cold. First class service could have been more attentive. While trying to sleep crew talked the entire time."
Pros: "Friendly crew and on time flight"
Pros: "I liked that I was able to check my carry-on to for free"
Cons: "I hated the seat and zone that I was assigned. I was literally the last seat in the back and also the very last person to board and get off the plane. It was terrible. Please select better seats for customers"
Pros: "Great services ce."
Pros: "The Gate Agents were excellent and very helpful with accommodating our family traveling with an infant and a six year old."
Cons: "The flight attendant saw that we were confused about the seat map and did not offer any assistance."
Pros: "Everything. Pilots and crew"
Pros: "Nice crew members always polite and courteous.maybe over polite if anything. Australians don't require subservient service deliverers. The constant "your very welcome" regardless of the service and response to that delivery is off-putting to me. But al in all pretty good in most areas."
Cons: "ON ticketing at New Orleans I wasn't allocated a seat number. At the gate shortly prior to boarding I needed to attend the desk for that allocation. I was also not told which Terminal the plane would go to in LAX and which terminal the connecting flight would be leaving from. They were not sure! Consequently I floundered around at LAX wasting time and bothering people for information that should have been known to me. The security checks are over the top and inconsistent in the US."
Pros: "I enjoyed the upholstery and comfort of the chairs."
Cons: "I prefer to be made aware of delayed flights sooner than an hour before the flight. I would much rather wait in the comfort of home or a hotel over waiting in the airport."
Pros: "I liked getting home"
Cons: "I didn’t like the delays without warning or any benefits at the end."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and accommodating. Although the flight was several hours late the crew and staff were very professional and apologetic. The alerts were accurate and timely. Once we were in flight I was extremely please with the ride. Thanks to the captain and crew my granddaughter and I made it home safely."
Cons: "The plane was delayed several hours."
Cons: "The overhead bin did not stay down low enough so that I could place my bag in. It would lower then before I could place my bag raise slightly by a few inches. For someone of my height (5’5”) that was problematic. Fortunately another passenger saw my dilemma and held the bin lower to its full opening capacity. This also momentarily slowed down the boarding process."
Cons: "If some takes up two seats , then they should buy two seats. Very simple"
Cons: "There was no gluten free snack option."
Cons: "Extremely long queue"
Pros: "Friendly staff.."
Pros: "Good service, on time, clean planes"
Cons: "The commuter Jets seats are really small unless you pay for Delta Comfort"
Pros: "Free pretzels and drink"
Cons: "Not enough overhead space for everyone's carry-on bags so I sat with mine down by my feet which left me little foot space. Was a bit uncomfortable"
Pros: "The fact that there were no delays!"
Pros: "Great gate agent at JFK on the layover."
Cons: "No assigned seats on second flight til we got to JFK."
Pros: "Seats in economy had a little more elbow room and space. They offered free movies and free satelite tv as well as better snack options."
Cons: "Not being able to pick seats until the gate. Traveled with 4 friends and all of us sat separate. 4 of us in middle seats."
Cons: "Delay from Seattle to pasco."
Pros: "Meg, our stewardess came out to tell us there would not be any coffee on a 6 AM flight and that we had time to get coffee, if needed. She kept us informed of flight delays, helpful with my bags."
Cons: "There was nothing that could be done, but due to construction at the airport, waited on tarmac for an hour before we could get to a gate, then they had problems with the ramp and that had to be addressed. But pilot was very good about keeping us informed on delays and he was as frustrated as we were."
Cons: "It was a great flight. We got there earlier then arrive time. Thank You"
Pros: "The complimentary entertainment was great, made the flight enjoyable."
Cons: "The con was the need for a connecting flight and the second plane didn't have the same perks."
Pros: "Free movies/TV is a great amenity. Overhead bins were full by the time I boarded, so I gate-checked my bag. The staff was helpful and accommodating, which made that process quick and easy."
Cons: "Boarding is chaos. There's got to be a more efficient way than zones."
Cons: "I did not like the fact that I have been with Delta for years and their response to me about booking my flight and using the payment method was they are working on it and there is nothing they can do. They would not even offer to hold my flight for 24 hours in case they fixed the issue within that time frame. It was very disappointing."
Pros: "It was actually a flight from new Orleans to Detroit. Seats were assigned at the gate for myself and many others. It seemed like the gate agent didn't care where she assigned guests who were travelling together as several people were not able to sit with their travel companion. Once I was on the plane I however switched with someone to allow them to sit next to their companion and put me closers to mine. Everything else went smoothly."
Cons: "I had my period and desperately needed to use the bathroom. We were told to stay in our seats The entire flight even though there wasn’t much turbulence. The flight attendant yelled at me over the intercom to return to my seat when I tried to get up so I ended up bleeding through my tampon."
Cons: "Wheel got stuck during takeoff. Had to fly standby to get home. Originally told I would not get home that day. It was 8 am"
Cons: "Sat on runway when we landed took forever to get to gate. Late on a non stop w good weather"
Pros: "It was acceptable."
Cons: "Flight was about 30 minutes late for a minor mechanical issue"
Cons: "A bit of food would have been nice on a 5 1/2 hour flight!"
Pros: "Nice aircraft once I got to Texas. From my hometown the plane was kind of old."
Cons: "Well they lost my luggage after my original flight was delayed 2+ hours. Rebooked my flight but never communicated to me whether they would handle my bag transfer or if I needed to go get them myself From the baggage claim to put into the correct flight. So I had no clothes..."
Pros: "Awesome Customer Service"
Cons: "Nothing. Awesome Customer Service"
Pros: "Width of the seat is nice"
Cons: "Boarding process is not great and delays while already boarded are terribly frustrating"
Pros: "The screens allowing us and our children to be entertained in the plane."
Cons: "Not had our plane delayed for over an hour."
Pros: "Movies were great!"
Cons: "They didn’t give customs forms until exiting the plane. Caused huge problems for everyone. Sandwich was still frozen inside."
Cons: "Snack options aren’t good."
Cons: "The guy who’s checking me in he’s very kind.he is so nice person."
Cons: "Space in seats"
Pros: "The customer service on British Airways is excellent. The meal served on the overnight flight was wonderful."
Cons: "My original flight was rerouted due to a connection delay. They lost our baggage due to rerouting our flight from American airways. We were told that our bags would be delivered the same day and we are still waiting on our bags."
Cons: "I'm 6ft2in not enough leg room"
Pros: "Experience was fine, Flight was late leaving & plane seamed pretty old. The crew however is was very good."
Pros: "Pilot sounded nice"
Cons: "Airline Attendant ride. Not 2 me. I stayed away from her seeing how she talked to other patrons. Yelling “get with the program. I’ll be watching you” for simple mistakes made before door of plane closed. Tried to talk elderly woman out of tea because she was lazy and didn’t bring hot water on her cart. Eventually brought it but why try to talk her out of it. Heavy set dark brown tall Attendant on flight 5874 Mesa Airlines. Lost my luggage. More and more friends, family & 1 flight expert says AA gets more complaints. Will try booking with another airline carrier in future unless absolute emergency to take AA. Worth $40.00 or more extra to get friendly service."
Cons: "Our connecting flight to New Orleans was cancelled and we had to rent a car or wait until the next flight out which was 5pm the next day. We opted to rent a car and Had to cancel our return flight home to be refunded. American Airlines cancelled multiple flights and were in total disarray. Still waiting to see if they will honor the refund"
Cons: "American Airlines nor British airways honor kayaks booking codes in the event of an emergency"
Pros: "I took my girlfriend on her first airplane ride! The flight was bumpless from wheels to wheels. The Pilots did a fantastic job! Thank you so much for a remarkable first plane trip! THEN!!!! The have Buffalo Trace Bourbon! I mean.... what else do you need ?!"
Pros: "Liked the flight. Very nice crew."
Pros: "Left on time and got us to Dallas safely"
Cons: "Due to weather (not your fault) arrival to Dallas was delayed and we nearly missed connection"
Pros: "Helpful crew - courteous in their attitude towards customers and helped tight connections get out of quickly from the rear of the plane. Smile was on for each interaction."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 50+ mins. The exit row announcement was made twice asking customers to acknowledge verbally which was probably a communication faux pas."
Pros: "On-bard snacks and service"
Pros: "I arrived in Sydney the day I was supposed to. Everything else was a let down and was not what I paid for."
Cons: "American Airlines cancelled a flight because of ‘weather’ from Msy to dfw, all other flights from Msy to Dallas operated on time but were sold out. We were re booked flying through San Francisco, missing out on flying on qantas, which is what I had paid for since they are a premium airline. We were booked on virgin America and then United for the international flight. United charged us each for 2 bags totalling $150 each, despite we booked a ticket with qantas which allows 2 bags each. Virgin America honoured our 2 bags, but united refused to. United also has service and aircraft which do not match the levels of qantas which I has specifically sought out. I could not eat some of the food because of the poor quality, and this is something I’ve never done before on an international flight. Additionally their were a lack of amenities on both flights, and no food vouchers despite our travel delay of over 5 hours. This whole ordeal has cost me money, worktime, and created a lot of stress to where I have had to cancel meeting on my arrival in Sydney."
Pros: "I had a great experience on my flight and the staff could NOT have done a better job. I want to thank everyone from the boarding gate to the deboarding gate, for such a nice experience. But listen up Americans, the entertainment would’ve been better, if one: the internet was free like it was in MEXICO! And two: the sound worked for the movies. (That might’ve been my fault... or my phone’s fault). But, the free texting was something only available in a country to which Donald Trump (the most patriotic American in his whole wide mind) thinks is so inferior! What’s up America? Can’t afford to give us free WiFi in our planes? I hear ya... What’re you gonna do Trump, build a wall around the United State’s overpriced internet service?!? Just kidding folks! I had a great flight!"
Cons: "I didn’t like nothing! Haha... see that just sounds cool and negative to say... but if you want to get technical and check my syntax and grammar and stuff, that means I DID like EVERYTHING! And I did! Thanks American I appreciate you!"
Pros: "Good service . Timothy was excellent . Hostess ."
Cons: "I had to stand on stairs while crew served drinks! Windy on stairs. Unacceptable! I felt like a second class customer!"
Pros: "Excellent flight. No complaints!"
Pros: "Quiet plane."
Cons: "No local temperature control, back of plane too cold, middle too hot. No air vents at seats. 3 hours with no drink service, went to back asked for a diet coke, was told no. Flight attendant who was in the back would not give me one, said they were doing water service now and I should wait."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours, then moved to the next morning at 6am. Before we got to the hotel, the flight was pushed back to 8am. All for mechanical reasons. We've flown this route before, and have had an abnormally high number of mechanical issues. They seem to use older planes for these shorter flights, and it really shows. Technology could really help ease these situations. American's app does not allow you to look at rebooking options, so we had to stand in line for a solid 30 minutes to speak to an agent. Since it was the last flight of the night, there were only 3 agents there to help an entire plane's worth of people. Calling American didn't help. They couldn't help with hotel/food vouchers. These types of vouchers seem like something else that could be distributed through the app or electronically, eliminating the need to stand in line and grow increasingly frustrated. To add to the fun, the vouchers were not event enough to get a hot dog and drink for dinner, then a coffee and pastry for breakfast. Once we got the vouchers, trying to get to the hotel was a disaster. They had 1 van, so they could get about 10 people every 30 minutes. We just took and Uber, and were eating in the restaurant by the time others were still arriving from the shuttle. There was no one from American there to help coordinate with the hotel or shuttle. We were like blind sheep wandering around looking for the van. Finally, arrive for the flight the next day, and they start boarding about 10 minutes before the 8am takeoff time. So, of course, we were late getting off the ground. Then, when we arrived in Dallas, our gate was occupied by another plane, so we got to sit on an old plane for an extra 30 minutes until another gate opened up for us. Really, other than crashing, not much else could have gone wrong. Made American look completely incompetent...which is happening more the more we use them. Next time, I'll pay a higher fare to fly with Southwest."
Pros: "Very smooth fast check in"
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "Boarding process was smooth and fast"
Cons: "Do you think airline management sits around boardrooms to brainstorm ways to torture its passengers more? The seats and the leg room are ridiculous. It's gotten to much worse recently."
Pros: "Didn't have to turn around & come back like other flight. Still got to my destination in time."
Cons: "hour delay because too hot to land in El Paso, only then did they need to fuel the plane, then realized plane was overweight, made me wonder if making it up or really hadn't thought it out."
Pros: "Timely and prepared flight."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly, flight arrived ahead of schedule, planeside check-in for baggage was expedient"
Cons: "The plane departed at least 15 minutes late but the departure time was never updated to indicate the flight was delayed...even when it was ten minutes past the beginning of boarding and the plane had not even arrived yet. Felt like an exercise to improve flight scorecard performance. The flight landed at least fifteen minutes early...but we didn't have a gate..and ended up departing the planeapproximately on time...but planeside checked baggage took almost thirty additional minutes to finally return to the plane full of waiting customers. Felt way too long....and the ground crew didn't seem to appreciate that most people had a connection..."
Pros: "No hassle. Drinks provided. No complaints."
Pros: "Plane clean"
Cons: "Seat assignment process totally sucks. Wasn't possible to sit with partner even though we checked in day before. Line management at gat abysmal"
Pros: "Permiten facturar el equipaje de mano ya que el vuelo suele ir bastante lleno."
Cons: "No hay tolerancia con los kilos facturados. El equipaje pesaba 51 libras y me hicieron quitar peso para después aceptar que facture ena puerta de embarque."
Cons: "No place to put my purse!"
Pros: "The flight was on time and comfortable"
Cons: "That I paid for luggage when most people waited until they were told while boarding so they checked the baggage for free even though it was obviously too large. Maybe it should be checked closer when checking in before going through security."
Cons: "Sat on tarmac for 1hr and 20 minutes since tower mix up and plane was bigger so confusion on seating. I feel stressed cause I will be missing a full day of work because of this delay and pretty pissed off. Would like some sort of compensation"
Pros: "the crew was nice and helpful, the seat had a lot of room"
Cons: "The plane seemed old and didn't have the features I expect in first class"
Pros: "Everything was on time. American sometimes has free movies you can watch"
Cons: "Nothing. Everything was good"
Cons: "I got stuck in DC overnight and I was not provided with a hotel or meal voucher:"
Pros: "Airport staff was amazing, helping us out with seats considering one of us was needing assistance due to health condition"
Pros: "Wonderful flight.... great crew!"
Cons: "I choosed this very very expensive flight because it was so import to be home in CPH at 9.00 for an important meeting. My flight from Chicago was delayed and nothing was done by the pilots to arrive on time. Despite the delay, I managed to arrive on time to my Connecting flight to CPH - only to realize that I was moved to a later flight. Now I have spent 2.300 USD on a poor flight that do NOT bring me to my destination on time. I am a frequent flyer, and will do everything I can Avoiding United going forward. Never United again"
Cons: "Not being stuck in Houston for 7 hours"
Pros: "What did I like? Nothing. It was United Airlines, and it has been a long time since there was ANYTHING to like about United. Usually, the best one can hope for is that there is plenty to TOLERATE. Unfortunately, this trip did not rise to that standard."
Cons: "UA to Denver cancelled due to maint, issue. Re-booked thru LAX on Delta. Arrived 12 AM vs. planned 6 PM (w/ 7 AM meeting the next day). Delta is 6-block walk outdoors from United at LAX. TSA pre-check didn't show on the Delta ticket issued by United, leading to another hassle at Security."
Pros: "It was a short flight"
Cons: "The persons sitting next to me"
Pros: "Great crew!"
Cons: "Not the airline’s fault. Bumpy ride."
Pros: "7 hours added to trip due to poor management of missed flight in Brussels"
Cons: "United needs to do a better job of dealing with missed flights. Missed flights happen, but over an hour in various lines because they couldn’t manage relations with Brussels Air, to say nothing of not realizing there was no chance of making the flight"
Pros: "comfortable seat"
Cons: "delayed 2.5 hrs, stood in jetway for 15 mins while crew fixed seatbelt issue. snack was poor; limited options for soda, small pour & only pretzels as snack!"
Cons: "The plan had to be maintained with no option for getting to my final destination on time."
Pros: "Easy stress free bording. Flight on time and on schedule."
Cons: "Had anightmare will complain to united diect"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and light hearted."
Cons: "There was no legroom on this flight, my knees were literally pushing up against the seat in front of me. I had to sit straight up and down to fit. It was by far the least comfortable flight I have ever experienced."
Cons: "Personal entertainment did not work. Most first and business class airlines have a screen to see the movies."
Pros: "The orderly fashion the airline boarded!"
Cons: "My flight was delayed making me miss my connecting flight and was not compensated for anything only a sorry"
Cons: "Outdated planes. Service sucked. No blankets. Delta for life!"
Pros: "The flight was comfortable."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly and as planned."
Cons: "nothing to complain about on this flight."
Cons: "Flight was 3 1/2 hours delayed. Missed my original connection. Missed the second connection because (as the attendants told us) they were unable to get ANY flight information to inform the passengers of where their connecting flight was. They were also pretty snotty and acted like it was our fault that we might miss a flight. I'm now sitting in Houston for the final flight of the day."
Pros: "Everything was on time and fantastic. We got in 20 minutes early"
Pros: "It was smooth sailing. Flight was full but not totally uncomfortable"
Cons: "I did not have an assigned seat until I got to the gate. Having to pay for entertainment on flight"
Pros: "Efficiency, punctuality, courteous service"
Cons: "Small aircraft, for the sector."
Pros: "Stewardess did allow me to check my coat bag"
Cons: "Sat in front of exit row. People in front of me can recline into my personal space I cannot recline pack. Typical united flight arrived slightly late. Then took over an hour to clean and prep plane for our flight. Almost every flight from United is late now. I booked this one 2 hours earlier hoping I could arrive before 10:30. You failed me even when playing it safe."
Cons: "Took too long to get baggage"
Pros: "Was able to change seats in order to sit with my wife."
Cons: "3 hour delay."
Pros: "very kind flight crew, no complaints coming back!"
Cons: "We did have one seemingly annoyed flight attendant on the way to NOLA from Chicago, and older woman. Seemed like every question we had was a burden. Everyone else was really nice, though."
Pros: "The crew was very courteous and kept us up to date."
Cons: "I did not like that both planes they put us on were broken. We were very delayed"
Pros: "The crew was great!"
Cons: "It would be great if those with connecting flights could choose their seat for both flights"
Cons: "United has a problem with its seat assignments. We were not given one on our connecting flight in Houston. That caused us to miss our flight. We were not given seat assignments on returning flights either, even though we we checked in 24 hours in advance. United 's terminal in Houston is very poor. I would not recommend it to anyone."
Pros: "Plane pushed away from gate a few minutes early bad was actually airborne two minutes after scheduled departure. Arrived early!"
Cons: "Seat didn't recline at all"
Pros: "It was quick and the person I sat next was pretty cool."
Cons: "The flight personnel had bad attitudes. The seating was cramped and the wifi was expensive"
Cons: "The TSA at New Orleans airport was rude"
Cons: "Smooth flight, on time, safety procedures followed"
Cons: "The staff was rude, bored, and appeared to be bothered by any request that was made. The flight was oversold, luckily I was able to get a seat (like I had booked and planned for) but my flight was horribly long. I was stuck next to someone that was drenched in perfume, it was so bad it hurt my sinuses. Since the flight was oversold there were no seats where I could move. Not like the attendants would have helped me anyways. I will not fly United again if I can help it."
Pros: "That i got home safely."
Cons: "4 5 Hour delays accompanied by apologies with a $10 expired food vouchers."
Cons: "Flight was bad and it took extra 4 hours before another one was provided. My luggage was damaged."
Pros: "Flight attendants were very helpful"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Pros: "The flight was comfortable with more leg room than other airlines and we actually landed 18 min early! What to go United Airlines."
Pros: "Uhhh, kinda unsanitary"
Cons: "Could've been much cleaner."
Pros: "Row 10, extra couple of inches is far more civilized."
Cons: "Didn't have the United app downloaded in time, so couldn't use the WiFi. No alternative."
Pros: "What I like it was very peaceful flight overall the staff was excellent and communicated with everyone very well."
Cons: "I really don't have any dislikes about this flight"
Pros: "Good leg room in premium economy"
Cons: "Horrible, rude service by one of the flight attendants. I was just asking for an extra glass of water. Cant believe they treat premier customers the way they do. TV did not work."
Pros: "The availability of free entertainment on the plane was a positive. The stewardess also was accommodating in giving me both a soda and water."
Cons: "We arrived 1 hour early to a line for checking bags that did not move for nearly 1 hour. There were staff behind the desk that were standing around on their phones and meanwhile there were lines longer than I have ever seen just waiting to be helped. The fact that check in etc was all in one place at the MSY is baffling. I paid ahead of time to check my bags but still had to wait in line behind people who had not even checked in for flights that appeared to be stopping in at least two destinations. Once we finally got to the counter, the staff member informed us that they were re-routing our trip. No apology was offered. When I conferred with my travel companion about the best option to re-route, the employee said "Sir I am speaking to you. Not that man." I tried to explain that this man was my travel companion who I needed to travel with because we were in-fact going to the same destination and had planned additional transportation together and that I needed to know if there was room for two people on this flight so that we could proceed onto our route together. After being interrogated about why my companion was not on my reservation, the employee told us that 12 people would not make the flight we were supposed to be on. She then took our bags (we have now been in line to check bags for almost 1.5 hours). Fast-forward to the return flight. We are supposed to depart at 7:15, but were delayed to 8pm, then 8:30, then back to 8pm, then to 8:25, then 8:40, then 9pm between the times of 11am and 8pm. Our trip to the airport that included two trains was significantly more stressful as these projected times were changed because we went from being on time to late to on time all within the span of an hour. The employees on the return flight were helpful in making up for the numerous delays but the confusion that seemed to hover over the company made me feel like nobody cared about whether we reached our destination."
Pros: "I liked crew as they treated me as good customer, thank you!"
Cons: "Their snack food I dont like it and little delayed"
Cons: "United double charged me for the same flight! When I called customer service I was left on hold for a long time and received no explanation or refund. Such a terrible airline experience."
Pros: "Boarding was on time and easy Seats had nifty head support"
Cons: "Didn't even get a drink Flight was short"
Pros: "Frontier was awesome! Super nice cabin crew, great pilot, left on time and early arrival!"
Pros: "We landed safely"
Cons: "We were delayed to depart. Not enough leg room."
Cons: "I was not expecting to la d at the south terminal. I am glad I didn’t have to connect to another flight as it took over 40 mins to get my luggage and take the shuttle to the main terminal. Otherwise the flight was fine"
Pros: "Simple and more affordable"
Cons: "To know if water had to be purchased or if it was free."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and fun! Quick boarding!"
Cons: "Seats are not that comfortable."
Pros: "Initially the price seemed great"
Cons: "There was no free checked bag option so myself and 2 kids each had to pay $50 eaxh way costing me $300 extra. I could have got better flights from United for the extra $300"
Pros: "Flight was significantly delayed. The 3 people I was traveling with received $75 vouchers for the huge inconvenience, but I never got that email."
Cons: "Flight was significantly delayed. The 3 people I was traveling with received $75 vouchers for the huge inconvenience, but I never got that email."
Cons: "No reason given for the delay."
Pros: "Flight attendants were friendly"
Cons: "Delayed, broke down on runway, waiting for hours to take off. The bath rooms where dirty. Once we landed ,we had to wait a long time before we get off the plane."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable trip. By the time I was done paying for baggage and a seat cus I don’t want to sit in the middle I could have bought a more expensive flight"
Pros: "It boarded and left on time."
Cons: "I think it’s ridiculous to pay $40 per bag! It took a long time for the fasten seat belt to go off so people could get up to the bathroom. One of the flight attendants had no problem getting on the overhead speaker to yell at people if they were up."
Cons: "Luggage was expensive"
Pros: "I liked the fact that the baggage agent didn’t bust my chops for my luggage being 2 pounds over for checked luggage. The lady that checked my bags was very nice about it."
Cons: "I didn’t like the fact that frontier entices you with low airfare and then screws you over with baggage fees and seat charges. By the time you pay all their fees, your ticket ends up costing the same or a little more than other carriers that already have these fees accounted for. I also didn’t like the fact that this woman supervisor threw her gate agents under the bus and then when confronted about it she denied it in front of 50 people and denied any wrong doing. What a horrible human being let alone a supervisor of people. Not sure what her name was but she works at frontier airlines in New Orleans Airport. The third thing is that Frontier goes very cheap on their airplanes. We had a brand new plane but the seats were hard and they didn’t recline. Tray tables were tiny and no WiFi. Who the hell doesn’t do WiFi ? Cheap airlines that’s who."
Pros: "The crew was exceptional. The pilot was outstanding. I get very bad motion sickness and both takeoff and landing were smooth as silk. It was much appreciated!!"
Cons: "Obviously we had that boarding delay issue. Ultimately it took less time than my cynical self expected, but it was still annoying."
Cons: "I arrived 2 hours before my scheduled flight time but had to wait for at least 15 minutes before anyone came to the counter."
Pros: "I was thirsty and reluctantly agreed to purchase some water. I asked the attendant if she had andy diet drinks and she said she didn't and then I said oh well I guess I will have to get some water. She gave me a cup of water for free.."
Cons: "I NEVER ONCE saw that I needed to pay for our luggage when I bought the tickets and therefore when I checked in, I had to pay $38 per suitcase. THAT IS TERRIBLE! Also, I had a terrible time checking in and when I purchased my seats, the price went up $10 a seat. I will fly Frontier OJNLY when I HAVE to. I will NEVER make it my first choice."
Pros: "professional staff. very smooth and safe flight."
Cons: "for safety i didn’t bring credit cards. I could not buy snacks. The seats were small and uncomfortable which I had too seat in for four hours. Only one toliet. It was very difficult to get of the seats to use the one toliet. I t was just too jammed."
Pros: "I really liked having two kids punching my seat every 5 mins on a 3 hour long flight. Pilots do know how to take off and land so I'm alive and that's the best part I liked about my flight."
Cons: "Seats are terrible. I know it's not the international flight but please please hire more attractive flight attendants. I don't want to have nightmares."
Pros: "The flight attendants were really nice, and my first plane ride was really amazing and smooth. Thanks for making me feel comfortable."
Pros: "Polite, courteous staff"
Cons: "My first and probably last time with Frontier. Can't forgive them for the carry-on fee and the fee to select a seat (that doesn't recline), which adds about a hundred extra to the cost of your round trip fare. I'll have to just stick to my normal carriers that won't surprise me"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats, like sardines stuffed into a can... Just cheap, but not in a good way... I COULDN'T believe you actually have a place on your little machine to TIP for bringing a Coke....are you kidding me. Your customer service is a joke....big mistake on my part. Never again."
Pros: "Check-in, Boarding and on time performance; friendly staff"
Cons: "The seats are really, really uncomfortable. Backs don't recline and the cushioning is so thin, I wondered why they bothered to put it in."
Cons: "Despite being 3 hours late, the gate agent was in a hurry and barking at us. Cabin crew was nice and captain was calming."
Pros: "Space for personal items (since you have to pay for checked-in!)"
Cons: "Unaware of the fee for checked-in luggages Flight delayed of 1+ hour"
Cons: "Our flight was cancelled for "weather" yet every other major airlines, United and Southwest, had no issues. The customer service representative was unprofessional. She was unwilling to provide any proactive assistance. In fact she offered us an alternative flight that was scheduled to depart AFTER our scheduled returning flight. Contrasting this with our experience speaking to a Southwest airline representative who was courteous and knowledgeable was unbelievable. I will never fly Frontier again."
Pros: "Service was great! from the curbside attendant who saved us a lot of hassle and time to the attendants, everyone was very helpful. Price was unbeatable. Unfortunately, to stay competitive in the industry, Frontier has become a "No Frills" airline. If you plan ahead with your luggage and snacks, they provide very affordable transportation."
Pros: "That we got to our destination safely and they didn't lose our luggage"
Cons: "Nickel and diming is for EVERYTHING! It was ridiculous after we added up all of our "fees". It would have been so much cheaper to go on a different airline. I believe we were scammed to believe we were going to fly cheaper because we didn't have to pay extras what a scam!"
Cons: "Showed up to the airport in New Orleans to find out my flight was canceled, but had to be told by people from another airline because the Frontier desk was vacant. Received no email, phone call, text or anything to tell me the flight was canceled. Not even one Frontier employee was at the airport to explain the situation. They just left a stack of papers to say the flight was canceled and they weren't offering anymore flights that day. Had to book one on another airline for the next day, so called Frontier to get reimbursed (they said very clearly on the paper that they would reimburse up to $400 in another airline) and spent over two hours on the phone getting passed around from person to person who said they couldn't help me. Still no idea if I'll be getting reimbursed. DO NOT FLY THIS AIRLINE."
Pros: "The price was good. Can't beat that for sure. Round trip for two less than 600.00"
Cons: "The landing felt like we fell out of the sky, the crew weren't really all that friendly and I found a used tampon in my magazine holder. The drinks weren't cheap and there wasn't really any real understanding of what the safety instructor was saying."
Pros: "They charge for carry-ons, checked bags, your snacks on board, any seat assignment, you name it. NOTHING comes included."
Cons: "Seats are too close, seats are uncomfortable, their phone lines for customer service are horrible always pushing you to website or pay more charges, check in at New Orleans had only one agent with about 30 in line. STAY AWAY!!!!"
Cons: "the website wouldn't let us finish the check-in process and neither way could we print boarding passes. Even your agent when we checked in at the NO airport said she'd heard often that the website didn't work properly. Wouldn't let us get past the do you have bags to check -- then would blank out and disappear. Very disappointing and very stressful."
Pros: "The flight arrived 10 minutes early"
Cons: "There was a lady sitting next to me with a small dog that was not in a kennel and it tried to bite not only one of the flight attendants, but me as well. The man who almost got bit told the woman that dogs should be in kennels during flights and she said "oh I don't know he's never done this before." Well awesome for you but I've never been bit by a dog on an airplane before either. The guy let it slide and moved on. The tray tables are a joke. They ONLY offer complimentary WATER. No leg room. Would not recommend."
Cons: "Waited in 1 degree weather this morning for 1 hour to check my bag to New Orleans to find out delayed 3 hours, gate changed 4x, then waited another hour for plane to deboard and "security check," only to be told flight was cancelled and to "see customer service." Waited in line for two hours with four other flights with no information other than word of mouth "if we don't wait in line can't guarantee refund." Found out there are no other flights to Nola until Tuesday. Got refund by phone booked new flight for Monday morning on Southwest. Total time at airport today: 9 hours. Saddest part: people are trying to get home for Christmas. Moral of the story: don't be like Frontier airlines. Be prepared."
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "I was not informed of the cancellation until 3 hours prior to flight and there was no one at the counter that could help !! They stated it was because of weather but when calling frontier directly it seems it was more because they didn't have safe and the earliest I would be able to come home on another flight of there's was Friday! No help trying to get another flight . I had to spend almost $600 on a flight from AA"
Pros: "Pleasantly surprised! Great price! Paying for carry on was not an issue with such a great price for flight. Nice, new airplane and friendly flight attendants. Would fly again! :)"
Pros: "Flights were overall good. Airplane crew was attentive and cordial- sats are comfortable although not reclineable. Flight was on time and even arrived ahead of schedule"
Cons: "Check in crew was not very cordial/friendly- Did not have any check in Kiosks open at MSY and no one around the dask for over 40 minutes Tried to check in online 12 hours prior to my flight so I could get discounted check in bag prices and it would not accept my email as contact so it would not let me finalize the process so had to pay full price at airport- Although flight arrived early- had to wait almost one hour for luggage"
Pros: "Personnel were great"
Cons: "Luggage took over an hour"
Cons: "An air hostess on the flight to New Orleans would make jokes with the guys across the aisle rather than bring me a glass of water. Another air hostess booed me on my way out when being told that."
Pros: "Three out of four planes on the round trip were new and in excellent condition."
Cons: "Three out of the four planes round trip were delayed. It is ridiculous that the only plane that actually left on time was the very first flight out on a Sunday morning."
Cons: "Flight delayed for three hours, no flight attendant to talk to, long wait on the phone before anyone would pick up and when I did get through to a human she could do nothing to help and kept repeating herself because she had nothing real to say. Plus they hit you with hidden charges left and right. The seats don't recline and the flight attendants are not available to help because they're so busy. Never again!"
Pros: "The flight was over a half hour late, the baggage claim was late, the seats were uncomfortable. I also did not like that you get a surprise bill to pay for your seats and check in bags (which are normally free) 24 hours before the flight. No point in having lower prices tickets if I have to pay an additional $80 before I can board. Very disappointing I do not want to fly Frontier anymore."
Cons: "1. They charge for every little thing. Each checked bag is $25.00 and each carry on is $35.00. They also charge you for a seat. So once you purchase your ticket, you then have to pay an additional fee to seat down. 2. The staff is unprofessional. Not only does everyone look sloppy, but the staff is comprised of individuals that don't care at all about customers and have been poorly trained. The quality is very low. 3. I was hit and then verbally abused by a gentlemen on the plane, they laughed and did nothing!!!!! 4. They only allow 15 bags on their plane! After 15, they will move your bags to a different plane without telling you. What kind of nonsense is that?!"
Pros: "I liked the one crew member who greeted me as I steeped on the plane. She was very warm. She was African American and blond hair. Very sweet."
Cons: "The rest of the crew seemed bitter and grumpy. From the person announcing that it was time to board, to the person taking drink orders. Especially the person taking drink orders. She was pissy when I asked for gin, because she had to go look for it. She was agrivated when I asked if I had to buy the mixer separate, as it was my very first time on frontier. They didn't have gin though it was on the menu, as expensive as the alcohol was that I did buy, the mixer should have come with it. The fact that one has to pay for a carry on is ridiculous! On to of it all the flour was late boarding. I was not impressed with frontier. I'm not sure I would ever be confident recommending it to people because of poor customer service, price, and tardiness. My name is jorge Sisson feel free to call me 5044289402"
Cons: "Being delayed 30 min at the gate and then another hour in the air !"
Pros: "Plane was new."
Cons: "The plane was brand new but very tight. Flight was scheduled to be 39min late and was over an hour late with no updates. 45.00 carry on charge or 40.00 to check baggage! Drinks and snacks were for purchase ONLY! Landed and sat on the runway for over 40min and the pilots have one update saying it was supposed to be a 5min wait and never updated after that. No wifi no entertainment!!!!"
Cons: "Tried to charge me $60 for carry on - on my second flight. Huge line of angry customers. Starting to be known as the worst airline in the history of flying."
Cons: "Horrendous. Don't fly Frontier if you are a fequent traveler."
Cons: "Two screaming babies. Great other than that."
Cons: "Didn't make the return flight because our first flight out of Denver didn't happen and we had to cancel the whole trip. Fees we were prepared for- but I will never trust frontier to get me to where I need to go."
Pros: "Seats were close the front"
Cons: "Due to that fact that Covid-19 is present and we have to wear masks and stay six feet apart... I feel that he flights should not have been full... how can u stay six feet from someone who u don’t know is covid free when u are sitting on top of each other... Orlando airport is the worst airport I’ve ever been to.. they only had a limited amount of restaurants to feed a overcrowded airport... spirit airlines is the worst airline of all and I will never fly with them again... they changed my direct flight from Baltimore to new Orleans to Baltimore to Orlando then to New Orleans with no warning.. that was was very unprofessional... I definitely do not recommend to fly spirit ever again... I will still use kayak in the future for travel"
Pros: "The plane was half-empty, so I felt comfortable."
Cons: "The airplane was extremely smelly from another passenger. I’m not sure what could have been done about that."
Cons: "I managed to book one of the best seats on the plane....not sure how I did it but I will do it again!!!"
Pros: "The lady crew members were well dressed, helpful and very nice."
Pros: "Ease of check-in. Baggage fees not too steep."
Cons: "Some fees hard to figure out."
Pros: "Arrived alive"
Cons: "Tight seating. Pay for snacks and drinks"
Cons: "Got to airport on time but long term parking was full so had to find an alternate place to park. When I got through the check in line at Spirit they told me it was too late to get my bag on the flight but I could still get on. Next flight would be tomorrow. Asked if they could send my luggage on the next flight- no. Asked if I could leave it and have someone pick it up for me-no. Asked if I could carry it in-no. My brother was already cleared to go. We asked if we could get a refund and then fly another airline-no. Spoke to a manager. He said he would refund me on the flight going. My husband recently passed away and I was flying to see my son for my 65th birthday. I am now on a Southwest plane flying out of Ft Lauderdale in the last seat on the plane. I should get into Atl around 7:00. Then I will have to take an Iber to get to his house because he has a function for his daughter that I will miss. The people at Spirit were rude and unyielding. The agent at Southwest was kind and understanding and did the best she could . I originally booked Spirit because it was the cheapest. Turned out that it is costing me about $200 and 6 hours more. Spirit, NO MORE!!! I’m"
Pros: "Excruciating- so uncomfortable- as a commercial designer;whoever makes the decision on the chairs needs to sit in them for 5 hours; they would then have made a different choice"
Cons: "Seats were very cramped even for economy."
Cons: "I couldn't purchase my bags and get a seat upgrade on the same mobile check out site. So i skipped the seat."
Cons: "I ended up having to be at the airport for a total of 14hours. They cancelled our flight and I had a baby with me so we had had to rebook with another airline to get back him flying out at 6pm to Charlotte then getting home at 1am. Got to the airport that morning at 8am."
Cons: "Delayed an hour and a half, sat on the plane over an hour prior to departure. can’t get water from staff as they said we weren’t delayed an hour and a half on the tarmac"
Cons: "Customer service was poor and flight attending was super rude. This would be my last time taking Spirit and I would make sure I inform everyone I know. I was charged twice the amount when I got to my terminal. How unprofessional. Karl, Daniel Emeri."
Cons: "There was nothing to like about this trip because the website would not send me a boarding pass although I checked in online twice the day before, so I never had the opportunity to even get in the gate. I asked for a boarding pass through an email and it didn't come through, twice. I did not think much of it because I have had problems receiving emails from Spirit in the past and I have always been able to log into my account and access the boarding pass on the website. The morning of the flight, the website locked me out and wouldn't allow me to log in. I actually had to leave the security line to try to sort the issue out. The kiosk at the airport told me I was at the wrong airport (I was not). I went to the front desk and the agent was SUPREMELY unhelpful and unconcerned, and marked me as a no show at 7:05 for a flight leaving at 7:25. Even though I was standing right in front of her. Even though I had left the security line to deal with the issue. I had to get to my destination that day, which happens to be the reason I bought a ticket in the first place, so I had to spend an additional $500 on a Southwest ticket because the agent at the front desk of Spirit said I had no other options with Spirit that day. I called customer service and despite escalating the issue to a manager, I was essentially told "sorry for your luck" and sent on my way. The manager even asked, at the end of the call after telling me a refund would not be possible, if I wanted to purchase an airline ticket while I was on the phone. I have bought a fair number of Spirit tickets in the past. I unfortunately already have a ticket lined up with Spirit Airlines in November but I will never be purchasing another ticket from this airline again. It was an absurd scenario - I paid for a ticket and was not able to redeem the ticket I paid for - and I should not be have to pay the price for Spirit Airlines having poor IT."
Pros: "I liked how easy it was to board the plane, but that’s because I paid an extra $7 to be in zone one. That was the only thing I liked other than the flight landed safely."
Cons: "I don’t like that I had to pay $55 to have a carry-on. I travel light for those reasons, and if I’m going to pay extra for a bag I might as well check it and get to take my toothpaste with me. I don’t like that I paid $27 to be in the exit row. There was no tray table on the seat in front of me, or anywhere for my usage. There is no headphone jack. You shouldn’t even ask if I enjoy the entertainment because they don’t offer anything, not even for the people that pay extra money. Also don’t like my seat didn’t recline or have an armrest and overly obese couple that they squeezed in next to me took up all the space of the row. What’s the point of paying extra for comfort, when you get less than the guy who paid nothing and is in a middle seat, who I’m sure he was uncomfortable and miserable as well. I also don’t like that you have to pay for water!! Who makes you pay for water!? Not even the peanuts or the pretzels were complimentary… Absolutely never ever flying with this airline ever again! The cheap airfare was definitely not worth the lack of professionalism and being taken advantage of to have to pay for every extra thing that should be expected in regular travel."
Pros: "The crew were nice the flight was relaxing"
Pros: "Cheap Price"
Pros: "Tell the captain that the flight was smooth and the landing was exceptional!!! the best I've had. Thank you"
Cons: "The flight was delayed both ways!! Coming back we had two get off the plane and wait two hours for the co captain to come from Texas!! I really would like a refund!! I'm not happy at all we sit on the plane about 30mins before they told us to get off!!"
Pros: "The ease of doing things online."
Cons: "The agents at the ticket counter weren't very friendly, knowledgeable or helpful. Also email updates weren't very timely."
Pros: "First time in a long time since I've flown Spirit and boy was it an experience. The staff and crew are the only nice thing I could find about them. The staff cannot control what the administration orders them to do. They kept apologizing throughout the day for the delays. The airline provided food vouchers since we had breakfast lunch and dinner at the airport."
Cons: "Where do I start. We had a 8am flight from New Orleans to Orlando and arrived at the airport at 6:30am only to be told our flight was delayed. Ok, delays I've handled before. We'll be patient and wait for the now 10am flight. Well the flight was delayed over 5 more times and didn't actually leave until 9:30pm. Yes, that's right. We spent 15 HOURS at the airport waiting for this 1 1/2 hour long flight. Every other spirit flight around us either left on time or was delayed an hour or 2 max. We waited 15 hours. Why didn't we leave and come back later you ask? Well because the flight time kept changing!!! First it was at 10am, then 12pm, then 2pm etc. I felt like a mouse with someone dangling cheese in front of me and leading me by the nose. Just a little further and you can reach it. I've been flying for over 20 years. NEVER had a experience like this one. Thank you to the staff and crew who were only following orders and tried to answer questions and later were encouraging and apologetic once we actually got on the plane. Shame on you Spirit administration. Don't blame the weather when every other spirit flight around us kept arriving and leaving with only minor issues."
Cons: "Three of the four flights on our recent trip from Seattle to New Orleans were Canceled. Stop over in Las Vegas on the way there flight cancelled to New Orleans---3 hours in line at airport only to find next flight out 24hours later. Told due to weather. Next day we returned to airport to be told our flight again cancelled --this time pilots did not show for flights--placed on another airline and got to New Orleans 36 hours later then Planned. Four days later flights home from New Orleans to Seattle also cancelled. Long wait on hold with Spirit costumer service and no reason given for cancelled flight again. Asked and received refund form Spirt for those legs of flight then booked a flight home on different airline. We will never fly Spirit again. We feel sorry for their employees having to work for such an inept company. We lost a day and half of New Orleans time and two nonrefundable nights at our hotel in NO. Including cabs, and hotels over $700.00 lost plus the stress."
Cons: "You have to pay for everything. Its a cheep ticket until you realize everything you would expect from any othe airline costs extra. I have to pay extra to sit next to the people im traveling with, water, snacks... The seats are extra cramped, made of plastic and dont recline. Its never fun or easy to sleep on a plan but it is possible. On this airline it wasn't."
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "Fares may be cheap, but they gouge you on everything else. A carry on bag $57 is daylight robbery. Also overbooked my friends flight and bumped him so the whole trip was ruined because we didn't have much time. The seats are super uncomfortable as well. I guess you have to pay a lot more for a seat that doesn't send you to the chiropractor. Spirit should be ashamed of it's business model. It should be called set the hook with a low initial price then gouge all you can. I even took money to the bathroom because I thought they would charge. That is next by the way. I would have to say my Spirit experience at least matched my many prior experiences with United, which is the worst airline on the planet. Spirit maybe second by a slim margin. I will never fly Spirit again. They stink."
Pros: "I liked that we did not crash."
Cons: "I did not like almost everything. This airline should be called the nickel and dime airlines. Yes, the initial fare was cheap but then They hit you with $40 baggage fee, a $40 carry on fee and the only free item is about the size of a shoebox. $10 to choose your seat. $14 for what they consider a good seat, and $55 for a premium seat. What airline has seats that don't recline?? Are you kidding me? These seats are the equivalent of school chairs with a 1/2 inch padding for "comfort". When they say bare fare they are not kidding. I hope I never have to fly this airline again. This may sound like a joke but I am surprised they don't sell tokens to use the bathroom. "One token for a $1 but if you buy at the online check in you can get two tokens for a $1"."
Cons: "I always get burned by this airline. $50 checked bag fee? Ridiculous. 2 hr delay with no explanation? Ridiculous. And to add to the mix the random seat generator gave me the last row, window. Ridiculous. Never again. Ringo"
Pros: "Flight crew was friendly."
Cons: "Baggage fees and seat fees turned this "low fare" into a "damn, I should have just booked on Alaska" fare. Forced to sit on the plane at the terminal on the tarmac for 3 hours before take off. Couldn't get off the plane and they wouldn't just switch us to a different and better equipped aircraft. Seats did not recline. For a 4.5 hour flight, this was very uncomfortable."
Pros: "Paying for a $53 conversation with Spirit personnel as my flight was being boarded...without me"
Cons: "Apparently being 40 minutes early for a quality flight on Spirit Airlines just isn't enough time. They would not print my ticket since I wasn't FORTY FIVE minutes early for my flight!!!!!!! My plane was there, I was there, but they wouldn't let me board. I had no luggage to check. I was alone and had one small carry on. These business practices will soon have Spirit in airline heaven."
Cons: "The worst airline customer service I've ever experienced - will never fly Spirit again. The customer service representatives were yelling at us at the airport about bags being too large when they clearly fit into the bins and had been used on previous Spirit flights. In fact, when flying back on Spirit, no one questioned the bag! It just depends on how pissed off the rep is on that given day."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled 1.5 hours before take off and there were no other options available so had to book with another airline on the spot. Am very upset there was no indication of this much prior. There also were no weather issues in the area flying to or from the destinations. Would appreciate a full refund of flight and payment of other flight which was significantly more expensive as I had to buy on the spot. Last time I flew spirit flight was delayed 7 times. Really like kayak but will not be using in the future or considering spirit if issue is not rectified."
Cons: "We arrived at the airport an hour ahead of time. The Kiosk was extremely slow to load which made us 5min late in checking in for our flight. When we went to the desk for help the gentleman told us we need to speak to Ashley Pound the supervisor at the New Orleans airport. We were the first in line to speak to the supervisor and not once in the 45 minutes that we waited did she look up from her computer and not once told she would help us. There was no security line and we had plenty of time to get to the gate before the flight. Finally when she did acknowledge us, we had already missed our flight. She had a poor attitude rolling her eyes, making sarcastic remarks and walking away while we were asking questions. When we asked how we were able to get home she said there was nothing she could do for us. We ended up having to purchase a $1,000 ticket from southwest to fly out the next day. I understand we cut it too close checking in and should have allowed for mishaps to happen especially with this airline but I am astound by the lack of professionalism of Ashley Pound and the spirit airline. When I asked to see where it said we needed to check in a hour in advance she refused to show us so we went to another spirit employee and it took him over 20min. I am very dissatisfied with the customer service at spirit airlines. I have enjoyed spirit airlines in the past but for them to refuse to make this right is a big disappointment."
Pros: "The departure and arrival times were the only reason I chose this airline."
Cons: "I don't care for all of the additional fees such as seating and baggage, and then trying to charge me more because the website didn't work and I had to call their help line. Upon arrival only one of 4 kiosks worked and the staff told us it would cost extra to check in at the counter, so we waited in an unnecessary line with everyone else. When we boarded there was trouble with someone's ticket so they pulled the last 6 of us off to scan our tickets again. The seats and tray tables were in poor condition with noticeable wear and coming apart in multiple places."
Cons: "We need legislation that will require sites like Kayak to honestly depict the price of a standard airline ticket. This should include bag fees and especially fees for carry ons. When customers have to go to the airline website only to find out that each checked bag is $100, carry ons are $100, assigned seats are another $20 and no food is served, Kayak, at that point has become dishonest by not disclosing this information until after it is too late. Please tell us this information in advance, not after the fact. In the mean time, stay far, far away from Spirit Airlines. I can't wait for them to go out of business."
Pros: "I paid twice as much to check bags as I do on other airlines. It costed me a total of $94 to check one bag to and from. Also the customer service was poor. It took forever to claim my luggage because the flight attendants told me an incorrect carousel number. I was on a wild goose in the airport and because of this I obviously don't feel it was worth the extra money checking bags. Also I didn't like that I had to become an online member only to save ten bucks on my returning checked luggage. Don't waste your money!"
Pros: "Cancelled for no reason"
Pros: "I was randomly upgraded to first class which meant bigger seats so always a plus. Fast boarding and de-boarding."
Pros: "on time, I appreciated the low cost to change flight"
Cons: "Not a big fan of the crew making jokes during safety demonstration. Never, Never, Never should they joke about crashing, even if it is clearly a joke. Tray tables absolutely worthless. Could not put my laptop on it seats not at all comfortable. So, overall the cost of the ticket saved me $40 over American, and i got no frills. There was no value here."
Pros: "The crew was awesome"
Cons: "No leg room"
Cons: "i will never use your site again you never send my confirmation I called spirit many times and could not get flight info therefore I had to pay much more for another company and never went on that flight"
Pros: "The crew were friendly, boarding was smooth, flight was on time, very efficient. I have always been annoyed on other airlines when we pay to check bags, and then they let everyone else drop their bag off at the gate for free. I like that they charge you $100 if you don't check your bag before getting on the plane."
Cons: "Too many hidden fees!! These need to be very clearly stated when you purchase. The day that I checked in, I was charged an additional $141.98 in baggage fees & seat fees...can you believe I had to pay for an aisle seat?? REALLY?? If you don't join their "club" ( for $59.99) your baggage fees are higher. I didn't join. Everything costs money...how about $4 for a bottle of water? Again, let us know this WAY UP FRONT! It would have been much cheaper for me to fly United or Delta!"
Pros: "The seat are uncomfortable and they broke my luggage and give me credit for a future airline you have to pay for your in advance or they charge you more at the gate and advertise false about cheap tickets about time you pay for everything you brought full ticket from better airline never use them again"
Pros: "We were safe"
Cons: "No frills on board"
Pros: "Food options were fine. Boarding was quick and easy. However, they had large seats available in row three and wouldnt sell them to us... Weird. They went unused all 3.5 hrs of the flight. My uncomfortable seat was hurting my arm and I held my baby during his nap and the arm rest put me in a bad position where my hands fell asleep. The captain was polite. Take off and landing was a breeze. No turmoil there."
Cons: "The attendant was so rude. Blonde girl. I won't even get into what she said to us. Then when we landed at LAX the carseat was not at the baggage claim. We had to go buy one because the baggage service was closed at 633pm. A 2.5 hr drive home and during the drive (about an hour afrer leaving the airport) some hispanic guy with an attitude calls and states, "are you gonna pick up this carseat essay?" Wow we about had a heart attack. My husband lost his temper at that point. Your airline can just keep the carseat. Donate it to Baton Rouge victims. We were in Louisiana to donate and volunteer help to flood victims and we fly 25-30 times a year we will never choose this airline again."
Pros: "The flight attendant brought me a replacement soda when the one I had was old or something. They didn't charge for using the bathroom."
Cons: "Paid more money for any/all seat choices. Seats don't recline, very tightly packed. Multiple delays to get to destination"
Pros: "Smooth ride. No delays. Grate price"
Cons: "Not enough space. Plane felt very crammed"
Cons: "My flight was cancelled while I was on the shuttle on the way to the airport so that was not very convenient for me."
Pros: "Horrible customer service!"
