Pros: "Typical Delta efficiency and comfort."

Pros: "Inflight experience was fine. TVs didn’t work but Flight attendants are friendly on Delta, cramped seating - but not unlike other airlines."
Cons: "Regular fare seat assignment not available prior to gate . Airport concourse F - poor - limited services. Customer Service seemed uninterested and unable to provide service both on phone and at gate. I’m a frequent United flyer & today’s Delta service experience made me more loyal to UA."

Pros: "Early and middle seat was open!"
Cons: "Coffee tasted like fish. :("

Pros: "We boarded close to on time, no hassles. Allowed my husband and me (retired military) to board early, thank you."
Cons: "LAX security is awful. We never left the airport (arrived LAX from Sydney AU) yet were forced thru security again. Had to remove shoes, was scanned and "frisked" by TSA to get to Denver. To go to Australia, Denver TSA waived the removal of shoes, skipped the scan for the metal detector and no one touched me, ditto for LAX on the trip to Sydney. Where's the uniformity or standards for TSA?? Why did I have to be subjected to this garbage on the way home?? This is why I despise flying. It makes no sense to me. This ruined what was a great vacation."

Pros: "The plane went where it was supposed to go."

Pros: "It got me home, eventually."

Gate agents disappeared after 7pm becuase they were due to be done with their shifts when our flight was originally supposed to leave at 6 pm. It felt like we were trapped in the movie The Terminal. Oh! And our bag was misrouted, because that was just how things went those 2 days. All in all a 6 hour trip turned into 18 hours. I could have driven home in that amount of time!"

Pros: "Layout of aircraft"
Cons: "Couldn't find USB port."

Pros: "On Time"

Pros: "I liked the crew and the fact that I could reserve a seat. I also like that they use terminal A in the DEN airport and terminal 2 at MSP."
Cons: "The legroom was none existent, my seat was hard as rock, and it did not recline. Also, aisle seats have smaller under seat space than the other seats."

Cons: "On time."

Pros: "The plane was actually a bit early in leaving which was nice."
Cons: "Could see baggage handlers throwing items on the conveyer belt. Always an issue to me. Like most flights these days, the seats were cramped but not as bad as others."

Pros: "Mediocrity is really the aim of an airline this tier, correct?"
Cons: "The hour delay, on top of an already 3-hour layover, in a terminal that wasn't even connected to the rest of the airport. The least you could do in a situation like this offer complimentary snacks to make up for it."

Pros: "Everything ran smoothly"

Pros: "Every thing"

Pros: "leg space OK"
Cons: "we were moved to a different gate for boarding. Then the flight ahead of ours had mechanical problems and we were informed of a 1 hour delay. Then we were moved back to our original gate.

Cons: "There was a three hour delay, perhaps due to weather. The late plane arrived, as expected, at 1 pm, with a departure time of 1:40 pm. Including a needed ten minute de-icing procedure, we actually took-off at 2:30 pm. I never found out what caused the three hour delay."

Pros: "friendly fast and efficient!"
Cons: "Sitting in the back of the plane!"

Cons: "Flight was an hour late. Unprofessional staff."

Cons: "They wouldn't let me on the plane. See about"

Pros: "Direct flight at a great price."

Pros: "Always a pleasure to fly Sun Country"

Cons: "I was one of the last ones to check in on a flight I had already purchased a ticket for in economy seats but had to pay $15 extra at check in for an economy seat. Paying extra should be if I want to upgrade a seat and not for a seat in an area that I already paid for. This was definitely not an upgraded seat. I will avoid flying Sun Country in the future."

Pros: "2nd leg of flight... Again, Everything was great, no complaints. The roomy, leather seats made the 21/2 hr flight easy. The crew was very respectful and professional. The way flying is suppose to be. Thank you. John"

Pros: "Flight went on time, the price was great, Appreciated the complimentary beverage, The crew was nice"

Pros: "Short and smooth"

Cons: "Because we booked through a third party , kayak, we could not pre-check in online"

Finally SC put me on a different airline on a flight that left 12 hours later. No compensation for food or other costs incurred as a result of this problem. I understand that things don't always go right but it is important to provide good customer service on those occasions. SC failed me."

Pros: "Late..."

Pros: "Same"
Cons: "Same"

Pros: "The first leg had awesome pasta.Then, on the 2nd leg, Philly to Denver, they had a "pay for meal" option for turkey with Chutney sandwich - again, delicious. I should add that the service was very good as well."

Cons: "Everything. Had to sleep overnight in airport and was late coming home."

Cons: "delayed 2 hrs in perfect weather"

Cons: "No tvs!!"

Pros: "straight through flight no connection. Crew was friendly and smiled."
Cons: "I do not like that you have to pay to choose a decent seat. Our flight was slightly delayed in boarding, and was not communicated."

Pros: "It’s been a while since I’ve flown American, but the aircraft was updated with a solid multimedia system, great moving map, and a standard power plug and USB port at every seat. That’s more than I expected, and was quite happy. Service was solid—no complaints."

Cons: "Long delay"

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Small plane"

Pros: "The flight staff did the best they could for how few of them there were."
Cons: "Flight cancelled, and the gate was understaffed, so it took forever to even get up to the counter to try arranging alternate flights. Also, the Kayak/Webjet tickets we were issued interfered with the process as the airline could not reissue us tickets directly. Moreover, one Kayak & Webjet got actively involved, they even tried to deny us passage on the alternate flights that American Airlines suggested. By the time we did make it up to the desk, everything was taken/full for the next few days & we have been struggling to make our overseas travel even possible ever since."

Pros: "Good serice,"
Cons: "Good service to switch flight pattern from greenville to new bern but still a delay that cause a 2 flight connection. Lots of on-line issues with check-in, overall a stressful day, hopefully it will all work out!"

Pros: "Assigned seating, snacks, touch screen media feature."
Cons: "Staff could have been more friendly."

Pros: "More improved than the last trip I took with AA to Denver. Efficient boarding."

Cons: "Think it is ridiculous that I had to pay so much to select a seat ahead of time, and it was just a regular seat. I can understand for extra legroom or exit row, but for a regular seat, that is ridiculous. Then there was a fee to change priority boarding, so I could ensure I was able to have my carry-on with me, instead of risk having it go underneath. Unable to use the entertainment, as I was unaware had to use my own device, which I had not set up in advance."

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "Entertainment."
Cons: "We sat on the runway for 3.5 hours while the crew cleaned up a fuel spill and we waited for a different co-pilot."

Pros: "Friendly and prompt service."

Pros: "Very friendly staff"

Pros: "The plane was new on the interior and comfortable."

Cons: "The service was terrible, 4 hour traveling and not food."

Pros: "On time."

Pros: "Very comfortable First seat on the E75. Lots of space."

Pros: "Crew was friendly. Made the connection!!!! Only made it because arrival and departure gates were adjacent but I was very pleased that they had not closed the doors at 8 minutes before departure time."
Cons: "Long delay to take off caused by: delay in plane arrival, extra security check of carry on baggage due to deplaning passenger, missed time in takeoff queue."

Cons: "The only negative was the weather!"

Pros: "They gave us the emergency row with more space which we liked!"

Cons: "Boarding process could have been better. I felt I was poorly informed of the technical issues and would have liked a better understanding of what was going on. Boarding and then having to deplane right before departure due to a tire inspection fail was unnecessary. I feel as though the inspection should have happened prior to boarding."

Pros: "Amazing it took an international pandemic to finally convince airlines to board from the back front."

Cons: "I was enjoying accept no food lolz"

Pros: "The flight was safe."
Cons: "Everything."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Service. The companies clear disinterest in providing service was evident by the poor training of the staff."

Cons: "We didn't make it to Vegas and they barely compensated us."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Cons: "No free pop or peanuts anymore? That's cheap."

Pros: "the take off and landing went smoothly, especially for someone with anxiety."
Cons: "as I am sure you heard from others....more leg room as I am over 6' tall."

Cons: "The plane was left standing in the runway for an hour past midnight, even though the airport was not busy. This led to further delays in renting a car, and we lost a good nights sleep for our short weekend."

Pros: "Attendants were very nice"
Cons: "No leg room and need more food, boarding took quite a while and got out seat placements wrong twice"

Cons: "The four hour layover"

Pros: "Friendliness of crew and gate agents, comfortable seats, efficient boarding, On time. Clean aircraft."

Pros: "Everything was great"

Cons: "Charge for everything including beverages and carry on. Flight was delayed causing us to miss our connection. They only do 1 flight per day so we had to buy another flight. Will never fly frontier again."

Pros: "Pilot tried to make up time, but had to wait on copilot, then paperwork, and even with being over 2 hours time luggage either didn't get moved from original plane or lost. I worked in customer service for 28 years and there could have been things done to ease the tensions. I was lucky and could easily go with the flow, but their were families and business people who had some real issues. Weather definitely was an issue and I am glad they consider safety first."
Cons: "Lack of attention to those who just needed reassurance that It's going to be OK and you would get them to their destination safely."

Cons: "Plane was too hot"

Pros: "Fast"
Cons: "Pay for snacks"

Cons: "Delayed 30 mins after I arrived at the airport for unknown reason. Waited on tarmac another 30 mins (at least) after landing. We didn't get an explanation for 20 mins. The plane was literally 30 feet from the gate. It was almost funny how annoying it was. I'm surprised all the passengers kept their composure. NEVER AGAIN"

Cons: "Econo airline with lots of extra charges."

Pros: "The person besides me."
Cons: "We waited 40 minutes on the tarmac. :("

Cons: "I felt duped. I chose Frontier because of the competitive rate for the flight fee. I had NO idea I was going to be asked to pay $60 for my carry-on bag at the gate! and THEN be required to pay again for a simple drink and snack on the airplane. I understand charging for upgraded options of more expensive drinks and larger snack items and additional baggage, but whatever happened to including the basic courtesies in the cost of the flight!? Again, I felt duped! I will not be choosing Frontier again in the future unless these things change. And, oh my gosh, sitting within 3 rows of the lavatory was extremely uncomfortable to the nose the entire flight! Surely there are better ways of de-odorizing!"

Pros: "Nothing particular"
Cons: "No priority boarding for kids under five?!!!! Announcement is not clear about gate changing and boarding zones. Charged 45 dollars on a small hand carried suitcase? And 40 for a large checked in suitcase? It doesn't make any sense......"

Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "Not knowing about the cost for carry on luggage and that it cost me $45. Know where on your website did I find that information. As a casual flyer it would have been helpful to know about your fee structure for luggage. I recently flew Delta and my large bag only cost $25. Not sure Frontier will become my go to airline."

Cons: "Long wait on tarmac at Denver - Frontier Airlines really down hill with fees for carry on and being able to pick your seat. Flying on Frontier is like riding on an old greyhound bus."

Cons: "Delayed both in Mpls and Denver!"

Pros: "cheap, clean, flight itself was fine"
Cons: "cramped, spent like 90 minutes on the tarmac"

Pros: "Crew was wonderful! Friendly, helpful, available to ask questions."
Cons: "Hate baggage fees and seat fees. It was frustrating to not know how much fees were until we got our boarding passes."

Pros: "Everything....."

Pros: "The paying/oarding process"
Cons: "Cramped, no free drinks"

Pros: "A++++ Everything was great! Would definitely book with Kayak again."

Pros: "Every thing went smoothly."

Pros: "Everyone was very helpful"
Cons: "No beverage"

Cons: "I spent 14 hours in the minneapolis airport with mechanical issues."

Pros: "very social and fun crew"

Pros: "Horrible never again use frontier airline"

Pros: "I liked having a seat between me and the other passenger"

Pros: "Ticketing agent attempting to help get me through to the flight on time despite TSA."
Cons: "I realize TSA is out of frontier' control but the plane was still present and the boarding tunnel still out & attached to the plane, Frontier assured me they wouldn't leave without me & yet when I arrived at the gate they refused to let me board. Then when I communicated that I absolutely had to get to Denver that evening because I play professional sports & had a game the following morning & cannot wait until their next available flight, they could not come up with another solution & refused to help me board another plane later"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Seats don't rcline, extra fees for seat selectin, carryon,food or drink, dirty plane, bored and slobby cabin personnel, late."

Pros: "Seemed to have more legroom than delta"
Cons: "Nothing to drink and no magazine"

Pros: "The crew was great. It was easy boarding and quick."
Cons: "Don't have complaints"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything."

Pros: "everything went smooth"

Pros: "Our flight wS delayed a little but they made sure that another connecting flight people got off first to make their flight. The crew was good and very nice."
Cons: "Only bad thing was it was delayed in taking off."

Pros: "Crew was nice and polite."
Cons: "Did not like having to pay for a carry on, small trey tables, and overhead light was broken on BOTH planes."

Cons: "There was a 6 hour delay in the flight. The seats are uncomfortable. You have to pay for everything. Not a good deal at all. The basic price is misleading as there is an extra charge for everything."

Pros: "Nothing"

Cons: "I purchased one checked bag online the morning of the flight. It was not found in the system so I was charged the rate for checking at the gate. I also understand bare bones operation but would have appreciated the offer of a cup of water. Thanks. Rose McGlinsky"

Pros: "The crew was fun. I didn’t want to buy a $2.00 bottle of water on my card. Seats are to crapped."
Cons: "Crew"

Pros: "I liked the fare."
Cons: "The seat was worn out. The check in isn't user friendly. The attendant was stern"

Pros: "Good value"
Cons: "Flight attendants need to make it clear that all refreshments are for sale, not free Flight was 30 minutes late"

Cons: "This airline takes forever once you are seated."

Pros: "A ticketing agent showed me how to use the boarding pass kiosk. No delays. Smooth landing under less than ideal weather conditions. Must have been an Air Force pilot."
Cons: "Cramped seating. My 6'+ tall sons would have been uncomfortable. Expensive adult beverages."

Pros: "It was entertaining. A flight member made it fun."
Cons: "Cramped space."

Pros: "I had very low expectations of Spirit Airlines... from their reputation and things I read online. But my family and I had a GREAT experience yesterday. Our bag check process went smoothly and the staff was very courteous. Everything went smoothly for boarding and my husband, my son and I all sat together in the same row. Everything couldn't have went smoother and i really wondered what all the fuss was about Spirit airlines??? We had a really great experience and would do it again. Can't beat the price, even if you pay to check a couple of bags ahead of time."

Cons: "Seriously the worst baggage fees in the industry. Never again."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "At least they didn't try to sell us again on the credit card."

Cons: "Late 2 hours looking for additional mileage to add to my spirit credit card"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I did not like the fact that I paid my ticket 2months in advance, and when I got to the airport 2hrs early, I was told that I was late and the plane was already full. How can it be full when I had a two months reservation? It seems like they sell the same seat to more than 10 people and then they gamble on the first person to sit in it. How can a company that is run by a human being be so greedy? I have learned my lesson. There were 4 more people who the same problem as I. When I called Customer services, i was told that there is nothing that They could for me because they are not at the Airport with. I asked if they could put me in another flight and they refused saying that I have to buy another ticket. What I do not get is why Spirit is still in business? Someone warned me about them, but I thought that maybe it was that one time, but I was disappointed big time. My sister lost a baggage with spirit 2 years ago and they never helped. Spirits have lost me as Customer and I am sure that I will not be the only one. They make their tickets cheaper to lure people into buying them, then they still their money without even thinking about humanity. I had to buy another ticket and I am flying tomorrow. Worse company ever. They do not deserve to be working with people. People should never trust Spirits, it is beyond the worse."

Pros: "There were no delays."
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Seriously stop losing my luggage"

Cons: "Did not like that it feels like a bait/switch to shop for flights, then highly up charged for things that should be included. Like being charged to check in... Isn't that covered when a ticket is purchased?? I purchased through Kayak and find out later that we can save money by doing everything ourselves online or at kiosk. Then watch all staff sit around and socialize while we over pay. Why have a staff at all? I had to pay to sit in exit seat then asked to assist in emergency. If occupying those seats... Why do we have to pay extra? I guess not what I had in mind. I will choose different airline next time. I paid more to fly my bags than it cost to fly myself. Don't understand!"

Pros: "Punctuality"
Cons: "Being charged for baggage"

Pros: "Crew was funny"

Pros: "On time, great crew, what I expected"

Cons: "All the extra charges Seats didn't recline Beverage service for purchase only No free water Delayed flight"

Pros: "quick- nice staff."
Cons: "added fees for baggage- makes me want to use a different airline."

Pros: "Was expecting the worst… I had heard terrible things about spirit airlines… There was no legroom the service was terrible etc. etc. But, I couldn't have been more pleasantly surprised! I've never had pilot we was so knowledgeable about the geography and so informative. Also, there was a LOT of legroom!! (and I was seated in the next to the last seat in the very back of the plane). I think more than Delta...which is the airline I have always flown."
Cons: "Nothing...actually there was nothing not to like!! I got what i paid for… No frills and that's just fine. very friendly staff, very efficient, and absolutely on time. Will definitely fly Spirit Airlines again! Thank you Ned's kids"

Cons: "Gate agent had no information on filght length or arrival time. Flight was delayed but we had to stay by gate incase they left sooner. So coudn't get food, etc. WORST airline ever. My first and last time flying with them."

Pros: "The staff was far from. animatronic, very friendly, and the seats where far better than any other plane I've been on. Overall awesome experience."
Cons: "I didn't find anything wrong with my flight this time. Good work!"

Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "N/a"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "On my way back, they charged me $100 for a carry on. Even though I've never been charged for that same exact piece of luggage ever before by them multiple times in the past - including my trip going to my destination. Horrible service by Spirit airlines, will never use them, or recommend them ever again."

Pros: "The landing was one of the best I've ever experienced"
Cons: "Legroom was lacking"

Cons: "It was a pretty bumpy ride, nothing the crew could do about that."

Cons: "40lbs for a bag is a joke. They do everything they can to up charge the entire step of the way, hidden fees galore. No mobile Website is pathetic. The fact you have to print off your own boarding pass is archaic. Mobile hoarding passes need to be available. Our plane had no food or water they lied and said the cater was on strike. What was it a 3 day strike cuz they had it for the return flight. And guess what you're buying that water. Never again, I don't cate how cheap the flight is."

Pros: "Both flights were on time and had an easy boarding process. Flight attendants were very pleasant. Nothing special but got the job done and did it well."
Cons: "Leg room is very minimal."

Cons: "This shouldn't be under a cheap category. Considering that I had a carry on, I ended up paying and additional $120 for baggage. On my return flight I sat next to someone who for sure was on some sort of methamphetamine or heavy upper and could not sit still for a moment. or stop scratching herself. There is no phone line at all that gets you to a human to speak to... at all! So asking for specific flight details was impossible. To get a bottle of water on a 5.5 hour flight was $3 which is inappropriate. The seats do not recline and are small. If you do not pay for you carry on a head of time they will charge you $100 which is basically robbery. I will never fly spirit ever again."

Cons: "The entire staff was awful! I took a total of 5 flights and not one staff member was nice. Never heard please thank you just demanded we buckle seat belts and other instructions. I felt like I was a inconvenience to everyone I spoke to. Its not worth the money you save on the tickets because they charge fees for EVERYTHING even checking in at the airport!!! Don't waist your money or time with them."

Pros: "Paying less"
Cons: "My neck still hurts from the seats."

Pros: "I appreciate Spirit being no frills. You get what you pay for in that sense, but considering what you know you're walking into, it's a good experience. I was nervous about my personal item brought on for free (a backpack) and was careful with how I packed. All went well and it wasn't flagged by staff as being too big."
Cons: "Again, you get what you pay for. I can't rate entertainment of food high because I didn't utilize those services as they come with a fee."

Pros: "Surprisingly wasn't delayed"
Cons: "Service is always horrible . Terrible airline overall"

Pros: "Got there on time. Luggage arrived at baggage check promptly."
Cons: "Check-in process didn't work on two different kiosks, even with assistance from agent. Hard to understand policies on paying for luggage; probably more expensive than with a full-service airline. Counter agent hard to understand (broken English). Boarding pass in two parts came apart but needed both parts for TSA security. No ability to use TSA Pre-Check made wait much longer. Extremely limited room between rows."

Pros: "The plane and flight were fine. Costs for beverages and snacks , well, nobody( or vary few) bought them so that should tell you something."
Cons: "What I didn't like is that the small APPROVED SIZE carry on cost as much as my ticket to fly round trip., $55 each way. Really,........you need to raise your fairs and stop gouging the customers for every other thing. I had to pay extra just to sit in an isle seat when most of the planes seats were still up for grabs. Sorry but Spirit Airlines will be only researched for services by me if it is an emergency. I am aware that the airline needs to make money or it will not stay in business however I think the cost to ck a bag, if it was reasonable, would speed up things so everyone wouldn't try dragging everything they have onto the airplane to stow in the overhead with everyone else waiting on them. I am familiar with your problems as I used to fly schedule 135 , in Calif from La to SFO."

Pros: "ease of flight"
Cons: "I booked this flight for my adult child through KayakThere was no indication of a fee for a small bag. Most airlines allow one free bag and backpack. Although the flight was cheap the $50 for a small checked bag was steep. Based on that alone I would not book through spirit."

Cons: "Still think it's ridiculous that you have to pay for a carry on, it adds $100 to the trip expenses!"

Pros: "Since we couldn't get passes in advance the clerk gave us leg room seats"
Cons: "The online program was horrible. Couldn't print boarding passes in advance"

Cons: "I checked in online the night before, but did not print my boarding pass. When going to check bags, I waited in line only to find out at the counter that I have to print my boarding pass at a kiosk - if they do it for you they will, of course, charge you. Ridiculous. When I went to print the boarding pass, I got charged again - apparently it did not go through the night before for some reason although I was never alerted. So I was charged more now for paying at the airport vs. night before. Not to mention, two charges showed on my account."

Cons: "our flight got delayed from 2:40pm to 3:10pm, then we didn't even leave the terminal until 3:45 due to a maintenance issue. No complementary drinks due to the issue. and charging $52.00 for checked baggage is outrageous..."

Pros: "The flight attendant who did most of the talking was very charismatic and added a bit of humor to her routine"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "The check in process, boarding process and the flight were smooth."
Cons: "The boarding pass that we downloaded on our phone weren't valid. After waiting 20min for security clearance, we had to go back and get the boarding pass from the kiosk. Spirit should have mentioned ahead of time that mobile boarding passes don't work."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "No recline"

Pros: "Nothing to like about this airline except maybe the pilots."
Cons: "Same garbage treatment as Baltimore to Minneapolis"

Pros: "The flight attendants handled a very traumatic experience as best as they could, were helpful, and calm throughout the entire ordeal."
Cons: "The planes themselves are awful, dirty, smell weird, and cramped."

Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful"
Cons: "I waited to board for to long the flight was bumpy I've never taken spirit but I will never go that route again pay the extra money and fly with another airline first time with spirit and my last"

Pros: "The flight was reasonably priced. It wasn't delayed too long. The plane was loaded and took off in an acceptable time. Finding and booking the flight was easy to navigate. There was a gate change but it was in close proximity and I was notified by email and over the intercom."
Cons: "The biggest problem was that there was no air as we sat on the hot Tarmac. The seats did not lay back and there was not enough room to sit comfortably and I am not a big person."

Cons: "The seats were very cramped - you couldn't even move seat back. Have never flown on airline where snack/soda had a price tag. This airline is good only for short flights."
