Pros: "I loved being upgraded to first class and the crew was so attentive."
Cons: "Nothing, glad this was a better experience than the trip to Miami."
Pros: "Amazing entertainment display and the boarding process is smooth."
Pros: "Can’t do anything about bad weather-we got through despite a weather delay. Crew was terrific."
Pros: "Arrived on time and smooth flight though it was completely full"
Cons: "They charged me $646 for the flight. And we departed 40 min later. I arrived late to my work. They gave me seat in the back of the plane. Horrible"
Pros: "I did get home eventually"
Cons: "Flight was delayed. Seats are cramped."
Pros: "Very comfortable seating!"
Cons: "The landing was a bit rough. Lol"
Pros: "Staff are adept at dealing with these issues but it is a systemic problem."
Cons: "Rather than pay luggage fees, people are bringing on their luggage and the flight ALWAYS runs out of space. Suitcases are being moved around right at people heads and more than once I've been hit and seen other people be hit in the head by a suitcase. Getting luggage in place used to be a simple and minor issue, now it occupies much of the time, energy, and attention of the cabin crew as well as the gate crew. I realize this is making money for Delta but the cost is being paid by people being hit in the head with luggage and the crew's unavailability to deal with other issues."
Pros: "Clean plane, quick turnaround"
Pros: "Equipment felt a bit dated. No entertainment system, which was fine with me. Skipped the offered snack. Just had water. Flight was onntime."
Pros: "The take off and landing were very smooth and the crew was nice."
Cons: "Crying baby aboard"
Cons: "I was delayed over 2 hours"
Pros: "Not too bad once we got on the plane"
Cons: "They make up this lame excuse about a slight delay on the plane arriving and having no flight attendants to get on the plane on time. This delayed our flight by two hours. They need to staff their flights !"
Pros: "I love the in-flight movies!"
Cons: "This wasn't pertaining to the flight or airline; but the TSA line was ridiculously slow."
Pros: "Seats. Service. Timing"
Pros: "Cody was such a great flight attendant. We weren’t seated with our kids and he helped us switch seats. He was so help and just sincerely nice. Really great person to represent your brand."
Cons: "Direct flight, on time arrival"
Pros: "i fell asleep until we arrive to STL."
Pros: "Friendly, efficient"
Pros: "Good friendly staff. Delta Studios is neat."
Cons: "Small plane , last minute seat change, half hour delay"
Pros: "Very professional cabin crew"
Pros: "I always love flying on Delta! The service is always excellent. The crew is always nice and attentive!"
Pros: "Cheking was easy. Service was excellent. Flight was on time and got to New York 20 mins before time"
Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "This flight was cramped. Not enough stretching room. Hard seats"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Pros: "Delta graciously rebooked us on a different flight."
Cons: "Late delayed notification after we reached airport and kept delaying for several hours"
Pros: "We were traveling with a 4 month old lap infant, and the crew went out of their way to warm bottles and be friendly in general. The plane was clean and comfortable, and on this leg of our trip the entertainment system actually worked!"
Cons: "The only bad things were those that were totally out of Delta's control: weather delays and absolutely nasty and rude TSA agents who seemed to understand neither the concept of their Pre-Check system (no dedicated lines and no priority) nor the fun of traveling with an infant."
Pros: "I am not one who enjoys flying. I don't think there ever will be a time that I enjoy flying. However, the pilot, stewards, and all other workers on delta were very nice."
Cons: "I don't like flying so there really wasn't anything I liked."
Pros: "For a short-haul flight on a small CRJ, it was the most pleasing and comfortable flight. No delays and everyone was pleasant from ground staff to flight crew."
Pros: "Exit row seat with no seat in front. Was able to stretch legs."
Pros: "Efficient boarding and unloading. Friendly staff. Good movies/tv shows."
Cons: "There was a storm so we flew in circles for over an hour. I didn't see headphones for the tvs (mine are bluetooth so they didn't work)."
Pros: "Pretty much nothing"
Cons: "Delta. They just hate their passengers"
Pros: "They had good entertainment for free. There were movies, tv shows, and games."
Cons: "The plane was delayed for 5 hours and the ride was longer than expected."
Cons: "My bag was damaged when I arrived at Orlando."
Cons: "Food and entertainment as always."
Pros: "I got home. That's the highlight. We didn't have any incidents."
Cons: "Took off late because the bus to transport flight attendants were late. Backed up once into New York. Had to circle several times. Once landed we waited in a queue behind 10 aircraft."
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Always a delay with Delta"
Pros: "Did not eat or use entertainment."
Pros: "Everything was smooth. Short flight, but they offered us refills on drinks, which I've never experienced before. Polite staff, great flight. Thanks!"

Pros: "Excellent flight. Nice new aircraft."
Pros: "Crew service was excellent"
Cons: "Poor leg space"

Pros: "On time, nice crew."
Cons: "Delayed flight for 6 hrs. and acts like it is just business as usual, perhaps it is for Delta"
Cons: "The flight was very bumpy and didn't have the option to watch a movie."

Pros: "Great comfortable seats"
Cons: "Too much turbulence"
Pros: "Everything was good."

Pros: "The crew was really nice and I like the cookies"
Pros: "The crew and the duration of the flight"
Cons: "The comfort and the food"
Cons: "American airlines needs to improve their inter hub options"
Pros: "Kind crew, smooth flight"
Cons: "The seating were very uncomfortable the tv screen are small and old fashioned. Compare to other airlines very uncomfortable and they made me check in my carry on bag to charge $60 so disappointed I been taking this carry on for long time no other airline ever made me do that will not recommend"
Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "The crew, the flight attendant was very rude"
Pros: "The flight itself was fine."
Cons: "The gate change was not announced on my phone app (changed from E7 to D49). I hate leaving out of Terminal E at MIA. There is no point to having TSA Pre-Check if you have to stand in line with people who don't have it. I have to remove my liquids and laptop. It's such a shabby, run-down terminal."
Pros: "Entertainment available excellent"
Cons: "Seating space seems to narrow"
Cons: "Only arriving in Madrid took 1/2 to open the door"
Pros: "Nothing, flight was delayed 3 hours"

Cons: "cost to check baggage"
Cons: "Most of the family were seating apart. I can't understand why?"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Boarding system, come located entertainment o/b, non existan food/snacks"
Pros: "The flight itself was about as average as any other flight. At least all our luggage made it from the incoming flight from Key West to join us in Charlotte. That was our final destination but most of the passengers were making additional connections."
Cons: "The boarding went like the plane was ready to leave on time, except it didn't. There was a delay because the flight crew came from another arriving flight, so they had to go through the full pre-flight checklist. Then there was a "minor maintenance issue" that couldn't be fixed right away because it was "shift change" for the maintenance crews. Eventually they arrived and fixed whatever, while everyone was getting texts and alerts that kept delaying the departure by 15-minute intervals. Over an hour (while sitting in a warm plane) after the original scheduled departure, we left the gate, sat on the taxiway a while, then took off. Cabin crew only had cookies and drinks, no other snacks or food. All anyone got was an apology for the extended delay."
Pros: "Easy check in and Boarding"
Pros: "The crew was excellent. Grabbed me a blanket. Did not mind the small plane."
Cons: "Bumpy ride."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable American airlines is the worst"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Tight seating leg room non existent."
Pros: "Nice seat. Good food. Good service."
Cons: "Seats and space"
Cons: "No longer free entries on board like before"
Pros: "Thanks everything was on time. Very nice cre"
Cons: "It was nice. And boarding was good too."
Cons: "No personal TV for entertainment"
Pros: "The crew of the plane going to Rome was very nice. Food was good. And the departure was fast."
Cons: "The entertainment system crashed and they had to reboot it. Also the system was old and the touch screen was not responsive. The headphone jack was put in such a bad place that I broke my headphones accidentally while moving."
Cons: "The drink was terrible, hot tea"
Pros: "This flight is the normal nonstop from Mia to StL. The seating is tight but not completely uncomfortable."
Cons: "I just had knee replacement 4 1/2 months ago. It was difficult to fully extend my leg under the seat in front of me because the space between rows has shrunk to include more seating."
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "Sandwich was still partially frozen"
Pros: "Food and a/c"
Cons: "Two hours delay."
Cons: "The departure was delated more than 30 minutes and the arrival disembarking was to slow."
Pros: "Arrived early, friendly crew, good exit row seat."
Cons: "Too many delays. Having to de-board after boarding."
Pros: "Speedy boarding"
Cons: "Unmotivated crew, uncomfortable seats."
Cons: "All. The worst airline in the world"
Cons: "Sits were not comfortable."
Cons: "Old plane"
Cons: "My flight was delayed for 3 hours and they where rude about my flight being delayed"
Pros: "Flight was on time. Plane was clean. Staff very professional."
Cons: "Was the worst flight ever check in was opened late , computers were down , boarding was horrific , problems with many people and seating , flight left late ,"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable flight. Ridiculous that the charge $50 for carry on, even if you carry it on !!! And then charge for food on flight. Delayed for an hour and a half. Never again"
Pros: "I was pleasantly surprised this time around with Frontier. Last time I flew with them they were late on the way there and the way back. This time they were on time both ways, even though there was a snow storm on the way back. I like getting to pick my seat and my bags showed up so I was happy."
Cons: "Had to pay $75 because my bag was 7 pounds over the 50 pound limit so that sucked, but it was my fault. On the way back I just reorganized my stuff and avoided the extra fee."
Pros: "airplane cabin was clean."
Cons: "boarding was late and they didn't even say anything. no apology or anything. It was also hard to hear announcements over the PA system"
Pros: "Nothing other than sitting on the first row"
Cons: "Waiting for more than 3 hours to check in my bag then pay a lot of money for it.only 3 people at the checking area."
Cons: "Seat,s are to small and hard"
Pros: "More snack/food options"
Cons: "Too long trip without free food"
Pros: "It was my mother's 1st time flying alone with an airline I had never flown. I was nervous because she needed a lot of assistance, but the Frontier guys who took care of her went above and beyond to make sure she would be taken care of. They walked her onto the plane, and made sure she was taken to her seat. The little things matter. And it's the only airline that flies direct from MIA to PVD:)"
Cons: "The additional charges added on make this airfare comparable with others. Initially, I only went with it because it was the only airline that flew direct to PVD. If Frontier is going to be comparable in price to others, make sure the service is also on the same standards. Also, the flight leaving earlier than the scheduled time can be a hassle for someone cutting it close."
Cons: "Paying for carry on bags is a rip off. I will avoid frontier in the future because of this."
Cons: "wished I knew about the fees for both checked and carry-on luggage"
Pros: "Nothing the seats were horribly uncomfortable. The seats don't recline and you get billed for every little thing. I won't be flying Frontier again."
Pros: "Arrived safe"
Cons: "The absolute worst customer service I have ever had in 30 years of flying."
Pros: "The pilot and crew were organized, friendly and attentive. We received our luggage fairly quick, however they did switch baggage carousel. The airfare was so affordable. I will definitely use Frontier again."
Cons: "The seats did not recline"
Cons: "Frontier didn't let us know the flight has been canceled before we got to MIA airport. They said it was because of inclement weather but actually the weather was very good in both departure and arrival cities. They also stated that many airlines canceled their flights on that day because of same reason, but we checked and found it was not the truth. NO COMPENSATION. NOBODY HELPED THEIR VALUED CUSTOMER TO FIND ANOTHER FLIGHT. WE DID ALL BY OURSELVES."
Pros: "Everything was on time. The seats were comfortable. No big issues."
Cons: "You have a box to measure carryons at the desk and the representative said bags needed to fit it, but they never checked bags as they were brought on board, and many of them were way over size. That leads to a shortage of space for those of us who used correctly sized bags. You need to enforce the rules. The copilot's announcements were mumbled and very quiet. You could hardly hear them. The pilot's announcements were fine."
Cons: "THEY CHARGED $40 FOR A LUGGAGE AND $45 FOR CARRY ON"
Pros: "Direct flight, on time, good price"
Cons: "Seat didn't recline, no entertainment, lots of loud children on the flight"
Pros: "Landing safely."
Cons: "We were an hour late in boarding and no one told us why. The seats are horrible - stiff and plastic, unable to recline. Our return trip from Miami was to leave at 7 am.. We were in line to check in at 4:45 am. There was a notice stating they wouldn't start checking us in until 5:05. No one was there. Finally two young ladies sauntered over to the desk at 5:45. Frontier leaves so much to be desired."
Pros: "the crew was amazing... so were the agents at the gate.. you all have hired very good people..."
Cons: "seats didn't recline"
Pros: "The crew was fine, polite."
Cons: "My biggest complaint is the lack of communication. Upon booking they do not make you aware that you have to pay extra to bring luggage of any kind. This added $60 to my trip, making the flight no longer "low cost" also I was sitting in the back of the plane and the bathrooms were emitting a sewage smell during the whole flight. We were also delayed for over an hour both ways once sitting on the plane and there was no explanation as to why. I would never consider taking this airline again."
Pros: "I had I pay for my bag at the airport due to me forgetting to online and then was upgraded to the front. Thank you!"
Pros: "Service was good ,on time , no hassle for bags ,I had one bag ,I was hearing lot of harassment on baggage . I found all good , no issue at all"
Cons: "Service,on time"
Pros: "My True Experience"
Cons: "I like the fact that the pilot informed us of pertinent information like time expected to arrive, Turbulence and why, how long we maybe staying in the runway and why. The stewardesses were very nice, professional and patient with some of the annoying passengers."
Cons: "This was the worst trip made by my. First: frontier in miami knew that was a 31 minutes behind and board the plane Two: we waited 41 minutes sitting on the plane for not reazon. Three: they said we going to be in ny in 2 hours and 14 minutes but we take almost3 hours and four: to pick up the lugge they taken more then 20 minutes to be pick....... Worst trip"
Pros: "Spacious seats, courteous crew."
Cons: "Cost of carry-on luggage was $45!! Ridiculous. Nothing served - not even beverage service. No entertainment to speak of."
Pros: "Inexpensive ticket cost"
Cons: "Seats are cramped and uncomfortable.. And they charge for beverages..."
Pros: "The staff onboard were friendly and the flight was fast and we arrived early."
Cons: "You have to pay for all snacks, no tv, electronic boarding passes don't work with TSA causing me to have to stand in line even though I was already checked in, the counter was understaffed and I don't think I like having to purchase the seat separate from the airline ticket."
Cons: "baggage fees"
Pros: "Overall experience"
Cons: "Had to pay for seats, carry on, and snacks"
Cons: "When I get to the gate the woman told me that I don't pay for my carry on luggage even though it was the 2nd flight in a round trip flight. The first part I got on with the same exact bags with no extra charge. Instead of looking up my info she told me I pay or I stay. Without raising my voice I asked her to check but this caused her to get defensive. We had 5 min to get on the flight and we didn't have time to argue. Frontier robbed me of $120. I fly back and forth from Florida to New Jersey always using Frontier. This past weekend is my last time using that airline. Jet Blue and American will now get my business and I'll make sure I tell everyone I know about what happened."
Pros: "Frontier is the new breed of airlines that will soon be charging you for the air you breath on the plane! There is nothing I can recommend about this airline. Every step of the process involves additional charges including charges for seats, early-check-in and carry on luggage…. carry on luggage is an additional $40.00!!! Many of the other passengers felt misled and this resulted in a number of frustrated, angry and disappointed people at check-in."
Cons: "All of the concealed extra charges; seats were too small for an average adult."
Cons: "Frontier isnt honest about its information display policies... the price displayed on Kayak does not mention that passengers have to pay for carry on.. which is truly an odd expense.. $ 40 each time in a round trip is a considerable expense.. furthermore, there is no mention that I have to pay for water and not to mention the old aiplanes... which rattles... this airline isnt worth the hassle..."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable. Not worth to fly a "cheaper" airline because after you pay for all the extras like check in and/or carry on luggage you realize you could travel with a better airline. Also I was told my flight was delayed more then 3 hours a couple of hours before the original time of flight. Had to hang at airport and those 3 hours delay messed completely with my weekend trip to Vegas where I had a camper rented with time for pick up."
Pros: "There was nothing I liked."
Cons: "The seats were very uncomfortable, there was no entertainment, you have to pay $40 for carry on luggage. The flight got delayed 3 hours, the staff was rude to the passengers. We had to take a detour to Philadelphia instead of NY to refuel, which took an extra hour and a half. They gave us no snacks/vouchers in the mean time. We ended up arriving at 10pm instead of the original arrival time of 4pm."
Cons: "The flight came in 2 and a half hours late, supposedly due to a computer glitch in colorado. We then had to stop in Philadelphia to refuel for hours and ended up at Laguardia close to 6 hours late! During that time a no point did the crew offer the passengers any snacks or even water. Not even to the children. They actually made people who couldn't hold any longer pay for snacks and drinks! The pilot then had a tantrum and refused to leave until a dissatisfied passenger was removed. Classy... Also, they make you pay for carry-on. Quite a lot. Smallest seats I have ever been in. Avoid this airline!!!"
Cons: "I didnt like the fact that the flight was delayed and a notification wasn't sent to my phone. I had checked the status that night when I checked in and early in the morning and the system said that the flight was on time. It wasnt until I reached the airport and the lady behind the baggage counter told me that the flight was delayed for two hours. I went to go eat with my daughter at the Chilis restaraunt. I figired since the flight was delayed why not have some lunch and head to the plane an hour before take off time. I left the restarant and went through screening. One of the TSA memebers asked me why was I going in so early when the flight was on delayed. I let them know that the flight was suppose to be taken off in an hour so they let me through. As I'm walking through the terminla they have someone walking bu asking if anyone was getting on the frontier flight. I told them that I was on that flight and they told me I needed to hurry up because the plane was about to leave. I became nervous ans started running down the gate to make it to the plane. I'm running with a two year old so Im pretty sure that you can only imagine how difficult that was. Once I reached the gate I was out of breath and it was suppose to be eight minutes before we took off. However we sat on the plane for about another thirty minutes before we left. I feel as though the communication with the airline is not there 100% and if you are sitting in an airport you should be able to hear the update especially when they are not planned ir taking place at a time that is different from what was already relayed."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable."
Cons: "That I had to pay for my seats and carry on luggage after I checked my bag."
Pros: "I liked how efficient the entire staff and flight crew was."
Cons: "I world have liked to know that all food and beverage were available for purchase only."
Cons: "carry on price"
Cons: "We got bussed from Philadelphia to LGA as plane was short of fuel due to long wait time landing in LGA. It was just terrible. Took forever to get to NY. Not entirely airlines fault. Weather has lot to do with it. But number of factors contributed. Boarding was delayed as we missed our a lot and took of later on top of already late flight. Then. Things just went south. The Staff were very counties and helpful and did their best."
Cons: "Its only airline that i travelled with till now that doesnt offer beverages.......i asked for little hot water for baby bottle even that was given reluctantly.... Pretty disappointing"
Pros: "There was absolutely nothing I enjoyed."
Cons: "The Pilot was horrible!!! When we were preparing for landing, it felt like a roller coaster ride. The plane made a long drop and had everyone screaming. I'm never stepping to that plane ever again."
Pros: "The boarding process went seamlessly."
Cons: "There is a charge for each piece of luggage, including your carry-on. I ended up paying more for my luggage than for my actual flight; the seats are hard, uncomfortable, about 1 inch thick with no padding and do not recline; there were about 25 screaming children on my flight making it an uncomfortable and expensive 3+ hour nersary flight. I will not be flying Frontier in the future."
Pros: "I liked one stewardess who was very helpul unfortunately didn't get her name. Thin, tall, blonde hair. She was very attentive."
Cons: "The gate changed and it was 15 minutes to supposed departure time and no one announced it or signage. Flight was to leave at 1:20, we weren't updated of a delay. They got us inside the plane at 1:45 and flight didn't leave till 3p!! The seats were squished and no one would give us any info. Close to departure the pilot said there was a maintenance issue. The other 2 female stewardesses were bitches. An asian one with short hair and a chubby blonde one in about her 60s."
Cons: "* I had to pay additional for any seat that I chose and for baggage, both ways increasing the price significantly. * The basic seat was tiny and very uncomfortable * The crew offered beverages for a cost but not any soda or water. * One steward slept on the plane for a good half hour or more."
Pros: "The seats"
Cons: "Hidden fees for carry on and flight crew was unable to even fill my water bottle. American airlines were able to do so even if it was not filled up all the way."
Pros: "It was really fast flight i loved it."
Cons: "We didn't even get to go on the plane. The flight was cancelled before we got to the airport. They gave us no explanation why it was cancelled. Also the information they gave us was terrible. A woman gave us a parse that said "call this number to reschedule" as soon as we called it, the reply was "I'm sorry we are closed try calling this number." It took about 2 hours to figure out how to get scheduled on a different airline."
Pros: "Crew were helpful"
Cons: "People are not cattle. Airline profits make flying comfortably a thing of the past. This flight was no different."
Pros: "The flight attendants were really nice, funny, and attentive. They were great."
Cons: "I think it is insane that the overweight charge is double. The baggage fees are insanely expensive and the seats are so close together on the plane you feel like you are sitting in each others lap. Considering how many passengers they have on the plane and how much money they make show how horrible the baggage fees are because clearly they are making profit. Also, you can't even get water without paying for it. Everything here costs, this is why I will continue to fly with Southwest and I will never fly with this airline again."
Pros: "Flight departed on schedule and arrived before scheduled. Attendants were courteous and helpful."
Cons: "Very cramped seating. Was OK for short flight, but would be very uncomfortable for longer flights. $3.00 for a drink of water!"
Pros: "Price Crew"
Cons: "Seats dont recline Not even a bottle of water provided"
Pros: "It was better than I expected. The landing was perfect!"
Cons: "That they charge for everything."
Pros: "are flight was on time,the crew was great, very friendly."
Cons: "you pay too much for luggage.you have to make the seat more comfortable."
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Late 4.5hrs, several false "we're boarding now". No communication of what the issue was. No in-flight service, even a soda wasn't free. Never again."
Cons: "How about an email or text that you are cancelling my flight? Next opportunity to go is two day away - not acceptable!"
Cons: "Hidden fees, water cost money, you save nothing with the cheap fair"
Cons: "I thought I had checked in to the flight earlier in the day. When I arrived at the check in counter to see if another flight was available, the only other option would have gotten me there after 2 stopovers. I was headed to a wedding and had to make the rehearsal dinner. The woman at the Kayak counter suggested that I try to get a new flight with a different airline. I did, and transferred airports. The next day, I received a note that my entire itinerary was cancelled because i had missed one leg of my trip. After spending 30 minutes on the phone with the help desk (who were very nice, but wouldn't budge) i was unable to get anywhere. Then, I had to buy another one way flight home to make it to work the next day. I will never fly Spirit again."
Pros: "We made it safely."
Cons: "Flight delays, we were on the plane for an hour after landing. sitting on the tarmac."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled without explanation. Found out at the airport instead of text, email, or call beforehand."
Pros: "Seats are the most uncomfortable I've ever experienced. Maybe acceptable for short flight, but more than 2 hours never again."
Pros: "At one time I excused the consistent lack of customer service. I overlooked feeling simply like a number, for price but I was sadly wrong. Worse customer service on the planet..."
Cons: "I arrived at 5:40 stood in line not knowing more check in machines one the other side of where the customers stood. (Had the agent focus on us instead of being on the phone). Had check in on the drive there got there and was told I need two check in prior to 40 min of my flight. I said mam it's 5 min after if You try help me I'll make it. She sent me to another line, then they sent me to another line so he could say no refunds I should have read the fine print..... KICKER TO ALL THIS I MISS MY AUNTS FUNERAL AND THAT FLIGHT WAS DELAYED ONE HOUR... if they had pretended to do some customer service I'd have made my flight and her funeral."
Pros: "The flight was delayed two hours. When we landed at our destination, we had to wait for over an hour to dock."
Pros: "I liked the easy boarding process. The crew was very polite. It was an easy, smooth flight."
Cons: "I am 5'3 and I only had a few inches between my knees and the back of the seat in front of me. Not super comfortable but my flight was only 2 hours so it was manageable."
Cons: "Never got to Vegas because Spirit cancelled my flight w no alternative"
Pros: "The crew was very nice, jovial, made a lot of jokes and kept it light. The airplane, upon boarding, was clean. That's the best I can say about Spirit."
Cons: "Spirit has lower costs, but at a price. To check a bag is another $50, and $55 to carry it on, and while you can get discounts on this if you sign up to be an awards member with Spirit and manage it PRIOR to your flight, this was not explained anywhere in my original booking. Food and beverages are SO overpriced - it's clearly a major profit center for Spirit. The plane was not comfortable. Very tightly crowded, seats do not recline, no back pockets for storage, no entertainment or WiFi - bare bones comfort. At the Las Vegas airport, we waited in line to check our bags at the Spirit counter (the only option for bag checking) after signing in at the Kiosk for over 40 minutes, and at 45 minutes until our flight was about to take off, finally took our boarding passes so we could go through Security. If Security had been busy, we would have missed our flight. This was NOT handled well as they kept calling other flights to "jump" the line. Basically, Spirit touts a lower-cost airline for a small downgrade in comfort. In reality, it is a very SLIGHTLY lower-cost airline with a major downgrade in convenience and comfort. I will not be selecting Spirit again."
Pros: "Checked 30 minutes before flight due to no assistance from staff with kiosk. Was not not allowed on scheduled flight. I had to rebook, costing me $99. Instead of fight that would have brought me home at 3pm, i made it to my destination at 11pm which cost me additional parking fees."
Cons: "The seats were much more confined than flight to phoenix, I asked if I could occupy empty seats behind me, I was told no by flight attendant, medical purposes, yet one of them occupied during flight. I was very uncomfortable and in physical pain afterwatd, I will pay more $$ next time for extra room in other airline. I was also charged twice for reserving carry on luggage. Paying extra to eliminate these factors will be worth it too me."
Cons: "Tray tables too small, chairs don't recline"
Pros: "The price was reasonable."
Cons: "The seats that don't recline, and the high prices for any refreshments."
Cons: "Rip off airline...not worth the cheap price to then pay $55 for a carry on bag...plus you have to pay for drinks on the plane."
Pros: "Spirit is the worst airline. Completely inefficient. Will never fly again"
Cons: "Spirit is the worst airline. Completely inefficient. Will never fly again"
Pros: "Price of ticket"
Cons: "Primitive boarding procedure nearly caused us to miss the flight. Kiosks won't print your boarding pass within 45 minutes of your flight time, even if you are checked into your flight. And Spirit does not permit you to use a boarding pass on your phone, you must waste natural resources & print. Unfortunately, we had a problem while returning our rental car, so we were later to the kiosk than planned. So, we had to wait in line to ask an employee at the counter to print out boarding passes. Thanks to the kind passengers of LAX airport letting us jump in line several times, we made our flight just as doors closed."
Cons: "We were delayed over an hour, with no support at the gate to explain why or let us know when we would be leaving. Incredibly frustrating, as I booked this flight (instead of another airline) for the departure time. Would have rather used another airline.."
Cons: "There is a check in policy of 45 minutes before boarding designed to make you miss your flight. I had to pay an extra 99 dollars on a 180 dollar ticket and was rerouted making me miss a day of my trip. On the way back the tries to make me pay 55 dollars to check a carry on even though they hadn't on the flight out. Worst airline I have ever encountered anywhere near"
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable and the workers were taking too much at the ticket counter then getting customers tickets in a timely manner."
Pros: "First time flying it was a nice smooth process from the time I showed up at the airport to the time I touched down in the next city. Had some nice conversation between two attractive girls with my randomly assigned seat. The staff of flight attendants were very friendly and had great senses of humor."
Cons: "I ended up taking a bag that was larger than the pictured carry on size on my return flight - but on the flight to Chicago I had to pay for bag check (52.00). Had I known I wouldve just used a slightly smaller bag."
Cons: "We thought we found a great price for a quit trip to visit our new niece. We were totally wrong. Spirit charged us more than then the industry norm for a checked bag. I had tried to check it in early online but their mobile functionality doesn't handle payments. So that was $50. When we arrived they were highly disorganized and it wasn't clear what line to get into. Let's just assume that's just part of an airport experience. We get to the gate, and see that the flight has been delayed an hour. We decide to hang out there and learn over the intercom that the flight was delayed 2 more hours. Did they update the screen? Nope. Less than 20 minutes later they were boarding. It gets better though! After partly boarding the flight, they made everyone get out. We were grounded for a long time before and after landing without adequate information from the pilot on why or for how long. Finally when it got to the point I was going to pass out they wouldn't give me water because "I had the entire flight to make a purchase." Never again!! Never!!!"
Pros: "Not a thing"
Cons: "This whole trip with spirit was a disaster from the beginning! I will never fly them again"
Cons: "when we were "checking in" it was difficult to add seats and add carry on luggage. also there were hidden fees we were not aware of at time of booking the flight. like paying for a seat, i thought that was covered by purchasing a ticket, & when do you need to pay for carry on luggage. i felt that spirit was "nickel & dime" the entire time."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed 3 hours, our connections were rerouted so we got to Vegas 12 hours later than planned, and the restaurants in the airport refused to take the free meal voucher."
Cons: "I will never fly this airline again."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very friendly"
Cons: "Just terrible, cheap airline"
Cons: "learning upon arriving at the airport that I had to pay $55 each way for a checked bag. Would prefer that Kayak warn buyers that they are likely to pay over $100 for a single bag other than a purse."
Pros: "I did not like any part of the experience. I love you kayak but please do not offer spirit airlines flights! They are truly terrible."
Cons: "Really dreadful! This airline is insanely riddled with hidden fees. They will charge you for every breath you take. By the time I was finished with paying the fees my flight had gone up by $100! Absolutely deplorable! I really enjoy kayak for the financial liberty it allows me and this Spirit airlines ripped it away from me. Not to mention none of these fees are mentioned before I purchased the flight! For god sakes buying a ticket doesn't even guarantee you a seat! I absolutely understand that every airline has extra fees, but Spirit was an insane outlier. I was charged for a Carry-on. A CARRY ON! Never again! Tisk tisk kayak!"
Cons: "I would never fly this airline again. I like to think I'm a pretty reasonable person when it comes to customer service, last minute changes, and things like that. Checking in was no problem. Our flight had already been delayed so I was prepared for a longer wait. As I sat there, the flight got delayed two additional times. Ok, no big deal, but when customers were asking why the attendants could not tell us. When asked a general time we would be boarding, people were told "when the captain gives us the OK." Finally, we boarded almost 4 hours later when the delay stated only 2 hours. The plane was OK, but the attendants were far from pleasant. I was OK with no Tvs, baggage prices, and all of that because I was aware beforehand, but the way the staff acted was completely disgusting. After finally getting Chicago, I waited almost 45 minutes for my bags. When I called my car to tell them the delay they replied that Spirit had been backed up all day. Why? No one really knew. On the way back from Chicago to Boston, the flight was set to board at 1:09 pm. The airport was extremely busy, so I did not get through security until about 1:40. I ran to the gate only to see that they hadn't boarded yet. No updated on their website of the delay and nothing sent to my email. We didn't actually board until about 2pm, and then had to wait an additional 30 minutes on the plane because one of the attendants was late getting on. So now, it is about 2:45 and we are finally taking off-originally scheduled at 1:54 with NO updates sent to the customers on the delay. No one explained the delay and no one could give a time when we would take off. A few people tried to call the airline to explain their concerns and were abruptly hung up on. The least Spirit could have done is listened to their concerns and gave an apology. I will never, EVER fly this airline, and I suggest you don't either."
Pros: "flight was on time"
Cons: "seats are too cramped. Passenger behind me kept kicking my seat the entire time (and she was a grown woman). People leaving the fight need to be told to be orderly. I had to calm down a verbal confrontation between two men because one guy try to rush from off from the back of the plane and bumped into another man. Crew did nothing, if I wouldn't have stopped the confrontation it may have gotten ugly."
Pros: "I like having an assigned seat, everything else was fine."
Cons: "$100 to check two very small bags is pretty unreasonable compared to other airlines."
Cons: "CARRY-ONS cost money. They cost more money if you don't buy them ahead of time. It costs extra to CHECK IN WITH AN AGENT. The airline is not upfront about any of this. These charges supposedly keep the cost of the ticket low: You only pay for exactly what you want (ie: if you don't have carry-ons, you can get away with paying less.). This is bullshit. They charge for WATER— tap water— on the plane. It is purely a money making scheme. They don't have repeat customers because they are awful. Oh and the seats are tinier than any flight I've ever been on. Truly the worst flying experience of my life."
Pros: "Crew and Flight Attendants were spot on. Flight was smooth and uneventful after leaving the gate. There is no (complementary) food nor entertainment on this flight, however, there isn't an option not to rate it."
Cons: "Flight left the gate an hour late."
Cons: "The check in line was ridiculously long. I pre-checked and paid for my bag on line and still had to wait in a long line."
Pros: "in-plane crew was efficient and unobtrusive."
Cons: "Plane landed late, taxied for later, and bags took over 2 hours to come out on baggage claim. some delays can be expected, but 3+ hour of delays without poor weather or any other noted special scenarios is absurd. No notices or apologies given."
Pros: "Excellent experience. It's always a good experience when the plane lands but to take a good thing to the level of excellence is not easy. Kayak and Spirit airlines are top-flight companies."
Cons: "I didn't know about Spirit airlines sooner."
Cons: "Too many hidden fees. What I thought was a $350 round trip flight ended up becoming a $530 flight due to hidden fees applied the day of check-in. Also, I don't have anything against animals, but I don't care to fly with dogs, cats or any other animals in the plane cabin. I can't sleep or read with a dog barking in my ear."
Pros: "on time"
Cons: "fee for water and coffee"
Cons: "Charge per anything that is normally free with other airlines. Charging for a boarding pass?"
Pros: "If u can travel with just a backpack it's perfect. I'm low maintenance."
Cons: "no carryons, the hour layover"
