Pleasant flight. Everyone was on the same page. Efficient boarding and nice checkin experience. Bags were delivered to baggage claim quickly in Las Vegas.
Aside from the 5-6 texts for the flight changing the flight was pretty comfortable
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "It was all good"
Cons: "No gate when we landed."

Pros: "The entertainment on the flight"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"

Cons: "Got there safe!"
Pros: "We took off and landed safely."
Cons: "Felt very low budget and cramped."

Cons: "No good-faith gesture was offered for the long delay. My associate and I completely missed an important dinner meeting with the rest of our team! Our team takes this trip each year and we have always drove. It' short and I then have transportation when I arrive. This year we decided to fly because it's even easier. This particular flight from Phoenix to Vegas took us longer then if we were to drive and I then spent more in RideShare. I won't be doing it again next year."
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Pros: "It was fine. Just not anything great."
Cons: "Many groups were not seated together. at the airport I asked if my husband and I could be put together . One worker seemed interested in helping, but another rudely butted in and said there "were no seats together, the flight was full." Come to find out the flight was not full, there were whole rows not full. The groups near our seats rearranged ourselves so we could be by our family members, so it worked out. No thanks to the person at the terminal. Really long walk from the gate to the plane. No food on a cross country flight. Only a few cups of water/soda and a cookie. which unfortunately is typical now days. The lights were off the whole trip. The captain kept turning on the seat belt sign for the turbulence. Which there was a lot of. But then he would announce for everyone to go back to their seats. It wasn't huge bumps, just a little rough. and it woke everyone up by announcing it multiple times."

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Passengers brought hot food on board at Dallas. McDonalds and KFC odours were overwhelming for first 30 minutes."

Cons: "When I️ went to the gate to Ben seated they said there was overbooking, but 10 min before departure they allowed me to fly"
Pros: "Oh the crew was very pretty. They spent more time on themselves their hair their make up and on their phones than they did the entire first class. Check our flights and miles. We fly AA ALOT for ourselves and other. WCB4350 Shipman. We don’t complain ever. But when you spend what we do and only just get your first drink with your dinner in the air is utterly ridiculous. Never got a clean up or a second drink. Had to interrupt the glam squad from their phones and make up bringing them our dirty glasses and trash asking for a second drink. Not impressed with this crew at all! Normally AA IS TOP KNOTCH. So it sets the standard that we’ve been accustomed to however complete and total letdown on this flight"
Pros: "Boarding and flight was on time."
Pros: "Customer service people were nice."
Cons: "American Airlines broke my carry on luggage handle and was told that I couldn’t claim it even though I was told that I had to check it in. Airplane was cramped, felt really uncomfortable"

Pros: "The crew for the most part was nice."
Cons: "It just wasn't a comfortable flight and then a extremely bumpy ride all the way from LA to NYC."
Cons: "Boarding complete chaos. Looked like Bangladesh. Very unorganized. No airline has ever explained why they do not board from the window seat out. Would reduce much confusion. Too much to handle."
Pros: "Good preferred seat."
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "The door team was all over the place creating a chaos at the time for boarding the plain. I've notice several people in front of me were complaining due to the boarding dynamics. (Not smooth boarding)"

Cons: "Being led to pay to select seats on flight that was only 50% full"
Pros: "Plane was clean; staff professional; no issues."
Pros: "None at all. Very poor customer service."
Cons: "Very poor customer service. Flight attendant name Daryl H. Colored male , declined to help me put my carry on luggage onto the over head bin. Instead he scolded me not to bring carry on luggage if I can't put it in. The bin wax too high for me . I'm 4'10 inc tall and unable to reach the over head bin. And Daryl H, was sitting on my paid chair. A nice passenger offer his help and put the carry on to the bin. I will not book this airline again."
Pros: "It was last minute booking, I was balky for the price and the overall experience was comfortable."
Cons: "They forgot to get my coffee but it's nothing major plus we were about to land in 30 mins or so"
Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "Delayed 2 hours, gate changed, no free food"

Pros: "On time flights."
Cons: "Middle seat."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled. Then we all were told to re-ticket at customer service. Waited on the line for 2 hours to get a stand by ticket for the next flight. Luckily I was the second from the last that got the seat, or else I would have to wait for the next flight which would take even longer than just drive to Vegas myself. I asked customer service to accommodate me with some food coupon since I had to wait for the next flights...they said they don't have that kind of accommodation, really?!!!"
Pros: "The crew was nice enough , app updates are nice"
Cons: "To many technical issues with this airline , everytime for the last 2 years there's a mechanical problem or issue with a plane blocking runway . Honestly I've never been on time with an American Airlines flight . I could have taken a bus and gotten to my destination faster, communication is poor , had to walk from terminal 4 to 6 because they have gates at both but didn't post the correct terminal to my ticket , so I walked from 4 to 6 ... Then the delay made me walk back to 4 because of a gate change . Then we waited on the plane for another half hour . All in all its not really the staff but more so the actual operation of the airline that I'm not willing to work with anymore ."

Pros: "Comfort nice cool cabin on boarding"
Cons: "No complaints with airline but flight was a little ruff on approach made me a little nauseous."
Pros: "We had about a 45 minute weather delay but those things can't be helped. The Captain kept us informed and he flew like superman getting us through all that crazy wind coming into Las Vegas. The plane was new and clean, the crew was great. Love that wide aisle...it eliminates that sardine feeling!!"
Pros: "Definitely the price. Fairly quick boarding process, just a little congested. Decent priced drinks."
Cons: "Not the most comfortable seats, but there was no one next to me, so it was okay."
Pros: "The crew was amazing"
Pros: "The gate agent was amazing and super helpful."
Cons: "Seats are tight and not very comfortable."
Pros: "LEFT EARLY ARRIVED EARLY PERFECT"
Pros: "The staff was friendly"
Cons: "The flight was delayed multiple times, the directions on having boarding passes on the app or printed prior were not given so found that our last minute to avoid paying the front desk clerk $5.00. The flight landed 5 hours later than scheduled which is completely unacceptable."
Pros: "Nothing, honestly. Constantly delayed, cheap airline with forced fees, only one I could take and I can’t believe you exist. You have horrible customer service"
Cons: "I will never fly you again. Sure you don’t care."
Cons: "So many charges at every step. $5 for boarding passes?"
Cons: "I am so angry booking with them. I booked the flight and then thought, ok I will add a rental car. It said clearly that the rental Car could be canceled up until 24 hours before the flight. Well, 2 weeks before the flight, my friend said, don’t get a rental car, I will have my car. So I cancelled and only then did I find out that once I booked it through their site I could not get a refund for the car and I could only get a voucher for use on one of their flights! And only after they take out any fees and costs that was accrued! So angry!"
Cons: "Flight was very late. Have to pay $45 for a carry-on bag. Seats were uncomfortable and have to pay for all snacks and drinks including water."
Pros: "It was easy to book. And they helped me make changes to my flight schedule without charging me"
Cons: "Everything else is charged... from the in service beverage cart, to your boarding pass. Your baggage. Everything you have to pay for. So just be prepared for that."
Pros: "Quick boarding with no fuss."
Cons: "The planes could be a lot cleaner."
Pros: "Better than on time Smooth sailing through south bend airport!"
Cons: "Just have to remember thrift airline No seat going back"
Cons: "baggage staff was super rude. She told me I am the last passenger on the plane which wasn't true. She made me pay $50 because of little overweight. I could easily redistribute the weight among my bags if she gave me little chance. I was a single mom with two kids (3 months and 3 years old) had to pay a fine which I can't afford. Thanks for giving me the chance to express my feelings."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Last minute delay due to a plane malfunction. Was told very last minute. Seemed like there were no quick resolutions in play. Had to wait over three hours to fly out, doesnt that entail compensation by law?"
Pros: "Fare and friendly staff."
Cons: "No wi-fi."
Cons: "Our engine seats at the rear of the plane were of course a little noisy at first. We got these seats on both our flights. Hoped that at least one-way we would have managed seats with a window."
Pros: "Love the ticket price, but charging $44 for a carry-on? C'mon man! Added charges that were worth it? Priority boarding: $15, Exit row seating: $25 Also be advised that all food & drink is for purchase and must be purchased with debit or credit card - absolutely no cash."
Pros: "On the way there and back the staff was friendly, the flight was smooth and and overall everything was just great. This was my first time flying with Allegiant and I will definitely do it again."
Pros: "I arrived safely Tommy Destination"
Cons: "It was so hot boarding and unloading. There was no air. Staff was curt and not very friendly as of assistance."
Pros: "The plane was clean"
Cons: "You have to pay to choose your seat, to have more than one carry on bag (literally of any size!!), and for any food. Nothing is complimentary. The seats don't lean back at all. No headrest adjustment for any sort of comfort. The seats are hard. We had a 30 min. Delay for some reason we were not made aware of and no apology was made. No Tv's or even a pocket in the seat-back in front of you. Basically if you can fly anything else other than this airline you are probably better off. Delta is basically the exact opposite of this airline and even American does way more. If I can help it I will never use this airline again."
Cons: "Old plane with fixed seats with very limited leg room which were not comfortable- broken window shades, scratched windows, & rattles everywhere made for a long flight. Crew was ok, I would fly again if the price was enough of a savings"
Cons: "Allegiant 468 7/27 4 1/2 hour delay on flight 569 on 7/27 and not a single person on the ground or plane even said sorry. Allegiant also failed to update the revised departure time. Allegiant posted an initial delay of 30 minunutes but then, when there was a further 2 hour delay due to a problem with the plane in Vegas Allegiant didn't update the time. (G4 568 was showing a two hour delay, with a 1010 arrival into STS but Allegiant never updated the departure time for 569 to reflect the additional two hour delay.) It wasn't until I called that it got updated and when I called I had to point out that the airplane hadn't even left Vegas and Allegiant was still showing an 8:50 departure time. It also took the reservation agent over 20 minutes to get any information about what was going on. Lastly each and every time I call I was on hold for a minimum of 20 minutes before being able to speak to a person"
Pros: "Cheap fare"
Cons: "High baggage fees. Airplane sat for 30 min after boarding for fueling and some type of technical specifications. Seats don't recline."
Pros: "Comfort and speed of the flight. Attentive staff!"
Cons: "Need one craft beer"
Pros: "Their flights are always delayed. They have some pretty old flights and they always get broke before the take off and they have to do some maintenance before take off. Not going to fly again with them."
Cons: "Entire flight experience."
Cons: "Literally had to pay for every little thing that is usually included in other airline tickets."
Cons: "The flight got cancelled - trip had to be completely rearranged."
Pros: "The price of the flight was cheap, but i know why. You ended up paying for your carry on luggage, ypu pay for seat assignment if you want to guarentee sitting with you party, you pay for soda. My flight was 1.5 hours late, due to mechanical problem. Plane was janky and it felt like it STILL needed repairs."
Cons: "Low airfare."
Pros: "The price and the nonstop flight."
Cons: "6+ hour delays Plane looked to be in sad shape, paint peeling, looked bolted together from spare parts. Strange Air Conditioning issues mid-flight that turned the plane into a walk-in freezer. upon landing our entire flights bags were abandoned and there wasn't a single Allegiant representative in the airport to communicate with the airport baggage people. After 1.5 hour wait our bags were finally offloaded onto the baggage claim by an airport employee not normally tasked with the job. Allegiant was paged over and over with no response. I will NEVER fly Allegiant again."
Cons: "Two out of three bathrooms out of order"
Cons: "They overcharge for bags and their weight limit is only 40 pounds. They leave the desk and hour before take off which doesn't help people who are running late. They charge you to print out your boarding pass. They don't even send the boarding pass through email, you have to download the app. Overall horrible customer service. When call for customer service you can't even get a human representative. I missed my flight and they didn't even have another flight to to accommodate me to get to my destination and no one at the front desk to talk to."
Pros: "Airline was great. Told us right away they were only going to do one drink service so we could order two. Left on time and had no issues. Would definitely fly with them again. Even though you have to pay to check a bag, it's still a better deal than any other airline out there. People need to stop complaining about the extra fees, do you want cheap or not."
Cons: "Nothing. Was exactly what I expected for a $35.00 flight."
Cons: "5 hour delay. They offered meal vouchers. For 8 dollar like wtf? But of course they offered them after every place closed in the airport."
Pros: "The flight left on time. Friendly crew"
Cons: "I don't like that they charge for carry on bags and they don't have a toll free number"
Cons: "I didn't like the schedule time change. Very inconvenient missed some of my planned festivities that were prepaid."
Pros: "Time of travel"
Cons: "No leg room"
Pros: "Having all the rodeo people going to the rodeo to Las Vegas"
Pros: "Got there safely."
Cons: "The seats are miserable small and uncomfortable. More options for snacks for the cost of the ticket!!!"
Cons: "Media entertainment selection"
Cons: "Bigger seats would've been better"
Pros: "The announcements for our flight was not good. When I asked the counter associate "if our flight was on time" she said yes. What she should have said was "yes we're boarding now". We almost missed out flight! Also once we were settled and was able to order our drinks, it took them so long to teturn"
Cons: "As soon as we got our drinks. We started descending which meant we has to drink fast. It was not enjoyable!"
Pros: "Crew very professional and provided excellent service."
Cons: "Boarding process chaotic."
Pros: "Nothing. At all."
Pros: "The staff was kind and flight was smooth"
Cons: "The plane was small and cramped. I could barely bend down to get my bag from under the seat in front of me and I'm tiny. I can just imagine how bigger people felt."
Cons: "Took off an hour late from a gate all the way across the terminal from the assigned gate. Promised "free" Direct TV did not work and the Wi-Fi didn't either."
Pros: "Flight was smooth, attendants were great."
Cons: "I was so uncomfortable in my tiny seat. They are small and awful."
Pros: "Comfortable seats. Great crew. Enjoyed the random jokes."
Cons: "Long taxing"
Cons: "The crew allowed an excessively foul smelling person on the plane who was obviously Intoxicated on some illicit drug and smelled so bad that it made the entire area unbearable."
Pros: "Staff was pleasant, decent movies overall."
Cons: "I can't eat mushrooms. Both meals had mushrooms (3 out of 4 entrees) and it wasn't always obvious which ones. Additionally, the second meal with seafood or pasta, the pasta obviously had mushrooms so I chose seafood, even though I don't like most seafood. Mushrooms all mixed in with the seafood, so I had to pick them all out. Also 2 of the accompanying sides had mushrooms. Do they have a mushroom fetish like Cheesecake Factory? Need more consideration for people who may have varying food requirements that are unavailable to address during the booking process. I know you can't please everyone, but why overuse an ingredient that has a relatively low appeal to potential passengers? Will try again, just hope they can use similar customer service in their food preparation as they have otherwise."
Pros: "Pilot flew over Death Valley National Park."
Cons: "you shouldn't have to pay extra to pick your own seat how ridiculous redeye flights are the worst"
Pros: "United Airlines for a change did a decent job flying back to LAS unlike our flight from BUF to EWR which got canceled and we had to drive to Newark which was not only disappointing but to witness customer service uncaring even more distressing."
Cons: "We may not choose UA for our family from now on. Quite a bit of confusion even when trying to reach customer service over phone, the hold time is 15 to 20 min?"
Pros: "We got let in first because we had a baby under 2. A stewardess felt bad for our seating at the end and gave us a free blanky for baby and a free shot for me."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 2 hrs. The back seating was horrible. One crew member made fun of my sister for walking too slow on the way out. Like seriously we were the last seats on plane and had a baby. So yes we were slow!!!"
Pros: "The space in this seat I had, was awesome. The boarding crew was rather pleasant and I loved how my gate was right next to my next gate."
Cons: "The attitudes of the flight attendants on this particular flight; they seemed highly agitated, probably because they looked tired, but who knows? Their performance reflected their attitudes."
Pros: "It was a short flight"
Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "Got stuck with the last row of seats. I never previously had the last row for a flight but to be honest it was definitely the worst seats on the plane. What makes it worse was these were not tickets I bought last week but on united economy they only give you seat selection just days prior and no explanation as to why you are placed in a particular row. Stuck near the bathroom and the seats do not decline at all though they deceptively provide the button to recline your seats. Horrible experience and one more reason to not fly United."
Cons: "I missed my flight due to a nonsense delay from Charlotte. Arrived at the gate 1 minute after scheduled take off and the plane was gone. Not even an attempt to waiting as I ran, 5 months pregnant, through the airport. I was rebooked to arrive in Las Vegas at midnight. 12 hours after the original time. I bought a flight from Southwest. I will never fly united again"
Pros: "Friendly staff, great customer service"
Pros: "I would like to give a rating lower than zero for this airline"
Cons: "Again a full flight and this time I was seated next to an Asian male. I'm deal thy allergic to fish and what did he bring to eat, yep you got it. While I know it's a right for him to do so, I spent the flight with puffed eyes and throat issues. Again, the flight was overbooked"
Pros: "Most of the flight attendants were kind."
Cons: "Some of the flight attendants were unkind"
Pros: "United is always a great way to fly. The crew is always nice and even through my delayed flight back to Vegas the captain stood between the walkway and plane an apologies and spoke to everyone which was new for me. Thanks united flight 455 to Vegas from SFO 10:44.."
Pros: "I liked that it was on time."
Cons: "The flight attendants are rude and cranky. The plane was hot and over booked."
Cons: "after transferring from terminal B after a long walk then another long walk to transfer to Terminal C and another walk to baggage claim for a 70 yr.old woman and no transport available is intolerable and unacceptable! It is so disgusting that I am a frequent flyer via United Airlines and getting more and more dissatisfied cause of the troubles I'm encounterring flying with United Airlines! I should think twice,the next time I'm booking with the airline for my next flight!"
Cons: "Time on planes"
Cons: "Delayed departure again"
Pros: "First of all the captain let us board early and get settled, the flight attendants were very friendly and the take off and landing were smooth, it was a great flight the seats were comfortable and the trip was short."

Pros: "The view and legroom was nice."
Cons: "I collect disability each month so I am on a very tight budget. The Spanish speaking woman that pushed my wheelchair told me that I can bring my water bottles full of water through the metal detectors. I asked if she could take me somewhere to pour them out and refill them on the other side. They threw them away at the metal detector. So I had to buy a new bottle for my medicine that I have to take. You would think she would have got it by me carrying these bottles around but nope. She actually said to me that I can give her gratuity now if I wanted. I gave her $1. She then replied in a sarcastic voice " Thankyou you are soooo generous. I don't like feeling obligated to tip somebody because I am disabled and have a bullet in my head."
Pros: "Friendly and accommodating our requests."
Cons: "Lady directly behind me literally choking, couching, sneezing and constantly blowing her nose (really runny), that was not enjoyable at all. And her two (2) companions were not provide any relief for her."
Pros: "Attention from crew."
Cons: "For a 5 hour flight, instead of a glass of coke or juice, I should get the whole can. Need an alternative to a cookie. some people have 'sugar problems'."
Pros: "The flight overall was great, easy to board and de-board, and a smooth process from start to finish."
Cons: "Connecting to the in-flight wi-fi to watch movies and tv shows was nearly impossible."
Pros: "They know their business"
Cons: "No free Internet. Costs too outrageous."
Cons: "I was not able to choose my seat for this flight. The person on my left kept stretching out invading my personal space. Was extremely cramped!!!"
Cons: "Same as first leg of the trip"
Cons: "They only had enough to food for the front of the plane , me and everyone in back was left hungry, I have never been so disrespected"
Cons: "United told us our plane was delayed, then they cancelled it. No one notified us, we just sat there and found out for ourselves."

Cons: "The 2 hour delay was not fun while we sat waiting on the airplane. I realize this is not the crew’s fault."
Cons: "Delayed not much notice"
Pros: "Plane was clean"
Cons: "No WiFi"
Cons: "45 minute delay because a passenger said he was allergic to a dog. Then the dogs were forced to ride in the luggage compartment. Three people,were charged 75 dollars for the dogs to ride in the cabin. None of the dog owners were refunded their money. Frontier said its a chance you take. The crew was charging people for water. Buyer beware. All of the fees add up to the price of a ticket on a nice airline. Don't fly frontier."
Pros: "Very cheap"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable no elbow room or leg room and the chairs are hard."
Cons: "Loudness And over priced EVERYTHING"
Pros: "On time, boarding was efficient. crews were good."
Cons: "No free stuff, not even water or magazine!"
Cons: "Canceled my flight eight hours before "supposed" weather even hit and had no other flights to put me on. Ended up having to cancel my entire weekend trip. Customer service was not friendly or apologetic!"
Pros: "Finally! You guys have an app and you let us put in a known traveler number. It's about time!"
Cons: "late with inaccurate status on website and broken kiosks"
Pros: "Very nice flight and crew. The gave me priority seat and boarding because I'm military as well as 2 free carryons."
Cons: "Only thing to make it better would've been wifi"
Pros: "Original flight was cancelled. Will never fly Frontier again. With no explanation."
Pros: "2 hour wait for baggage check in. Then an additional 6 hour wait for flight, only to find out it was cancelled non weather related. Terrible airline. Kayak should not be associated."
Cons: "I will never again fly frontier. Terrible customer service. They know it and they don't care. Their philosophy is well we are so cheap it doesn't matter what we do to customers they will still fly with us. Well not me. Frontier you have lost my business forever"
Cons: "The hidden bag fees"
Cons: "The seats are very uncomfortable and do not recline at all! The lap try is so small you can put hardly anything on it at all! No magazines, no food. Not recommended for long flights"
Pros: "Quick, reasonably comfortable flight, however....."
Cons: "This was the 12:30am red-eye from Las Vegas to St. Louis. Flight was delayed until 2:20am. Fine, flights get delayed all the time. It is worse when everything in the airport to kill time is shut down, but I digress. Then the plane comes in around 2am, everyone on the flight gets off, then the announcement comes that they don't have a crew for our flight now, and we will have to wait until 9am for the next flight. Whoopsies! This is no longer a delay -- this is a major F-up by Frontier that affected dozens of already very weary customers (the staff admitted to it being a flub). Once boarded, people complained, as you'd expect, and one stewardess responded "Well, you can pay $400 with somebody else, or pay under $100 here." THAT was your response?? She was stating a fact, I realize this, but that was the wrong answer at the wrong time, lady. I know you get what you pay for, but my expectations don't go completely out the window. And don't be proud to be a F-up airline that merely exists on its price point. It's one thing to be one, it's another thing to wave a flag about it. And the cherry on top is what Frontier did to make it right. Another steward on the plane explained how rare this phenomenon is that we just experienced. Well if it really is rare, and inconveniences their customers to this degree, you would expect them to take strong measures to make it right, no? Any restaurant would, a car rental would, etc, if it was such a rare mistake. What did Frontier do? $7 breakfast voucher. Just punch us in the face next time. There are people that have powered through your barely-existent customer service, and those "gotcha" fees that first-time customers run into (at least Frontier hopes they do), and still liked your airline. Then you go and do something to drive even us loyals away. All you had to do was do what airlines run by thoughtful human beings do and issue flight vouchers during this rare mistake, and it would have been a microscopic write-off. Instead -- face punch, and "justification" behind it of all things. Unreal Frontier, even for you."
Pros: "Cheerful staff"
Cons: "Seats do not recline and crowded flight"
Pros: "Non stop flights. On time great attendants"
Cons: "Foot cost to much."
Pros: "We landed safely"
Cons: "The flight crew was atrocious. They were rude when they spoke to us and when I asked for refreshments they turned around as if to get them for me and then the lady sitting next to my husband had to get their attention again to ask a second time if I could have water and Chex Mix so I could take my medicine. I have serious health conditions and I couldn't even get water without paying $3 a bottle. It is disgusting to me that we are charged for flight and then charged for Refreshments during that flight. Any other Airline who charges for a seat to take you to your destination includes at least drinks and nuts for free but not you."
Pros: "The flight was taking us home"
Cons: "It was a new plane, but late getting out, had no amenities and for me was very uncomfortable."
Cons: "The staff at the boarding gate were unprofessional. They gossiped about how they were hired on to Frontier. The girl talked about how she was fired from her last airline. I didn't hear the name of that airline."
Cons: "The people were incredibly rude"
Pros: "Clean plane."
Cons: "Add on cost for seat and bag. Will avoid Frontier if possible."
Pros: "Read a lot of bad reviews and was a bit nervous, but the plane was so nice, people were nice and the flight was great. For the price i couldnt be happier. Just make sure you check your baggage online. Carry ons cost extra also."
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable and don't recline. No complimentary beverage or snack. Late leaving."
Cons: "The flight was delayed a few hours. It took forever to Get out of the gate. It took an hour once we landed to get in the gate and deplane. I was given a seat on the computer and then when I got on the plane there were two people with same seat. The floors and seats were unbelievably dirty as well. I have never seen so much trash and crumbs everywhere. It was an awful experience. Our trip to Vegas the first night was ruined because we were planning to see a show Thursday evening and landed two hours late and could have possibly made it but we sat on runway for an hour before deplaning."
Pros: "Boarding on time"
Cons: "Pilots skills. I don't puke, I'm a Gymnast, never threw up on a roller coaster in my life. An that decent was drastic! Retired flight attendant on board she said "I've never felt so sick" You could feel.the pressure and dramatic decrease. Slow the .... Down!"
Pros: "Crew was awesome! They handled a rude passenger perfectly."
Cons: "Very small seats, trays, etc. Charge extra for everything. Bags, soda, snacks. At least they were reasonably priced."
Cons: "This was a joke they charge $40 for check in and $45 for carrry on luggage, i have flown for years and never encountered anything like that. Now i have to pay the same thing going back, my ticket just raised $170. Never again will i fly Frontier."
Pros: "First time flying, and had a great experience. I made a mistake when ordering tickets online and when I called in to fix the problem they corrected my mistake and bumped me up to first class at no charge."
Cons: "Nothing everything went smoothly."
Pros: "Pricing was excellent."
Cons: "Seats were not very comfortable."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable...the air conditioning cool when loading and during flight."
Cons: "There was not a gracious word spoken about the inconvenience of the 2 hour delay. I have flown many other airlines and this was appalling. Not a thank you for flying with Frontier either. Probably will not choose this airline ever again."
Pros: "Got us there safe sound and affordably"
Pros: "Was able to get good seats"
Cons: "Do nit provide snack."
Cons: "The flight come back from Las Vegas to St. Louis delayed 7 hours on June.13(from 7:50 pm to 2:20 am, transfer port in Denver). No sorry or no proper explanation or no compensation from Frontier. All passengers can not sleep overnight. I lost the working time on Tuesday morning because the flight arrived St. Louis. about 5:30 am. I was disappointed at poor service and long-time delay for Frontier."
Pros: "I like the personality of the flight attendants and the newness of the aircraft. Also we arrived 30 mins early"
Cons: "The new seats didnt recline and im 6ft so the too if the seat was a bit short and the bottom lacked in cushion"
Pros: "Fall i to that trap again."
Cons: "I did not like that everything had a price, the seats, the luggage and the drinks. My "cheap" flight cost more than a normal flight."
Pros: "The price & kind crew."
Cons: "The seats have no padding & you have to pay for everything."
Cons: "Seats were as uncomfortable as detailed in earlier reviews. The Flight to Las Vegas was delayed due to weather, fair enough, updates on the status were non existent. Let the people who have paid know what their flight status is. The flight home was on time, HOWEVER, it too OVER 1 hour before bag return carrousel even started moving. This is why I gave a low crew rating. The in-flight crew was good, but the ground crew fails."
Pros: "The only positive experience was their flight attendants - they were funny and entertaining"
Cons: "Ridiculous- I had no idea that Frontier was one of these airlines that hook you with a cheap flight price then charge you for Absolutely Everything else! $40 to check a bag, $2 for a soft drink, $9 to pick a seat in the back of the plane! Completely misled and uninformed! Never again!"
Cons: "Hidden fees are redicullos never again!"
Cons: "No complimentary drinks...charges for EVERYTHING!!"
Pros: "The Flight was on time and the staff was nice"
Cons: "I seats seem to be smaller in size so the comfort was not as good. You have to pay for everything on the plane. This was my 1st time taking frontier so I was sure we would get complimentary snacks but that was not the case. There was no WIFI and no option to purchase it either. Overall, the Frontier was Okay."
Cons: "Seats were extremely uncomfortable. Tiny tray tables."
Pros: "Spirit airlines was great."
Cons: "The flight was late"
Cons: "The constant switching of flight times and delays were ridiculous but I’m glad I was on time in the end"
Cons: "This company is a scam. You pay a extra fee for everything Printing your boarding pass that will be $10. oh wait you want to take a carry on bag that will be $45. You want to check in a bag that will be $45. If you do decide to check in a bag or a carry on make sure the demensions and weight is correct there will be another fee for any luggage that doesn’t fit their rules. Make sure you get a drink in the airport ahead of time because once again they charge for standard drinks while on the plane, the extra charges just never stop! In all reality it is not worth the savings in plane ticket because of all the additional inflated prices they get you on."
Cons: "The service, the non communication, cancel our flight with no explanation, service in handeling all of this. Will never fly spirit EVER AGAIN"
Cons: "What a joke I paid for an upgraded seat I was moved against my will into a standard sized seat, next to a morbidly obease traveller. I reached out to Spirit customer service and was denied a refund or any compensation. Never again!"
Pros: "Staff were actually nice on this flight. I boarded last so can’t complain."
Cons: "No entertainment. No power outlets. No reclining seats. No legroom. No frills. Base fare. Pretty crappy as usual."
Pros: "Flight started and reached on time."
Pros: "I had a great flights both to and from Las Vegas. The crews on both flights were really great. This was the first time I ever flown on Spirit Airlines. Both flights arrived ahead of schedule. I loved the pre-flight briefings that the crew gave. Although it is a "serious subject" they also injected some "humor" that had everyone laughing. I will not hesitate to fly on Spirit Airlines again."
Pros: "Nothing. Everybody was rude"
Cons: "We arrived at the airport on time and after changing the terminal on us, we still miss our flight. Employees were super rude, manager said "tough luck" and we were supposed to guess that we were boarding at the gate that said blue jet. You guys suck and i hope you know you won't be around for a while"
Pros: "They were efficient at loading and unloading. The business model of minimal inclusions was fine."
Cons: "I booked through Kayak but was not told about all the extra costs that could be incurred. I was unaware of the extra costs for checked bags. The cost was far more than other airlines. The flight attendants talked non stop to the point I was wishing I had ear plugs. The discounts for printing your own tickets and checking your bags ahead of time was not communicated prior to check in. It is on the website but not through the booking service. The self check in kiosk at check in would not work so we were upcharged for not using it but we couldn't."
Pros: "They got me to my destination"
Cons: "Realistically, the ticket itself was inexpensive, but all of the hidden fees, are a clear representation of the company's priority being the clients money, not their client's comfort."
Pros: "Absolutely NOTHING"
Cons: "This airline has check in requirements that no other airlines have and did not send any email or notification what so ever letting passengers know. I also was not informed through Kayak of these rules. They would not let me on the flight because I was waiting in line while 3 of the 4 check in attendants were not even helping people in line! I had to pay a $100 fee to change my flight and they didn't have any options for same day. The flight wasn't even boarding yet and there wasn't a line for security and the gate was very close. If they don't let passengers know of their rules when selling through a 3rd party website THEY SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED TO SELL THROUGH 3rd PARTY WEBSITES! Absolutely disgraceful experience."
Cons: "I was on time and it took me a couple of minutes at the kiosk to check in. The online checkin was not working either on spirit airlines.com. I missed The cut off by 2 minutes literally. I told the agent I wasn't aware of their policy that all gates close 45mins prior to boarding. It's not like I had a checked bag in which case I would understand. Letting someone not board a plane 45 mins prior to arriving at the airport is just plain madness. They were so unadjusting and not ready to listen and then wanted me to pay $99 to fly the next day. Their service seriously needs major upgrade. I try not flying spirit because of this reason and now will avoid it at all costs."
Pros: "The original flight cost was comparatively inexpensive, but when considering what I got and didn't get for the price, not really."
Cons: "I was charged $57 for a CARRY ON! Whaaat?! That's ridiculous. Most airlines don't charge you that for a CHECKED bag. And the worst part was, when I asked why my daughter didn't have to pay for her carry-on (a backpack), she told me that it was because it was a backpack, and that if I'd have had a duffle bag or some other type of tote, I would not have been charged. REALLY?! How does that make sense? I shoudl have asked her for one of those plastic bags and put my stuff in there! Good fodder for a comic, to be sure. And I will be sure to spread the word about this to all I know. Spirit SUCKS."
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: "Never EVER have I flown with an airline that charges you for carry-on luggage. If I would have known this and all the other extra hidden fees, including (extra chargers for checking passengers in..etc) I most definitely would have picked a different airline. To make matters even worse, they never once told me while checking in at their airline counter that they charge for carry on luggage. So.. when I arrived to my boarding gate, they announced that all carry on luggage was an additional fee of $100.00, unless already checked in at the counter for their base rate of $60.00 FOR A CARRY ON.... In order to board my flight, I had to pay $100.00 for one tiny little suitcase. I was beyond aggravated. It felt like this airlines entire intentions were to scam every passenger that boarded. At one point on the flights, as the flight attendants were going through the emergency procedures, a passengers behind me said "You will only give us our oxygen masks, for an additional charge" I will NEVER fly with Spirit Airline again. Every employee that I came across during my travels were incredibly rude, and very unhelpful. Spirit does have cheaper flights, but after all the up-charges you end up paying way more than you will if you just book with another airline."
Pros: "I was grateful the flights never cancelled, but it delayed so often. Good news was I kept getting email notifications on all the delays."
Cons: "The airplane was not meant to be comfortable. The seats don't recline. There's no radio or TV. No Footrest. The seats had very little cushion. My first flight, it looked to be an older plane, so I assumed they bought it used. My second flight, the plane was definitely new and they styled it so it would NOT be comfortable. They even made the tray table shorter. Wasn't able to fit anything on that. If you are looking for comfort or peace of mind in getting to your destination on time, then I would NOT recommend Spirit."
Cons: "It's advertised as "cheap" but by the time you pay for the seat, luggage, etc., you end up paying more than other airlines."
Cons: "The airline emailed at 2 am to notify that the 6 am flight was cancelled. The cancellation hotline was not too helpful - they rebooked me on a Delta flight connecting to two more United flights. Delta flight was delayed so I would have missed my 2 connections. Finally rebooked me on another Southwest flight to New Orleans (final destination) that they should have rebooked me on in the first place. Also discovered upon my second rebooking that the initial rebooking agent did not rebook my return flight, so I would not have had a seat had my first rebooking leg not been delayed. Only offered at $50 Spirit voucher for the inconvenience. Definitely never taking Spirit again."
Cons: "Late Very uncomfortable"
Pros: "not much"
Cons: "i didnt realize this was a low budget airline when we booked. The seats were so uncomfortable it was like sitting on plywood. I dont mind paying for snacks or even sodas, but water? Come on, WATER? that is absurd that i can't get some water on a flight."
Pros: "I liked absolutely nothing about this airline to the point where I didn't even fly with them the day of my flight"
Cons: "They were not willing to work with me to change my flight date do to a family emergency and couldn't give me credit towards further flights, goes to show how broke this airline is if they really need the money and couldn't refund me like other past and BETTER airlines have done in the past, I will NEVER fly this airline ever again and have told many people to do the same, this was my first and last experience. As a side note I had to DRIVE MYSELF TO LAS VEGAS FROM SAN DIEGO because they were not willing to work with me but I still made it to and from my destination"
Pros: "Nothing. Seriously."
Cons: "The fact you charge 45 dollars for a carry on...when other airlines allow you to have a free carry on. It's already bad enough you cram people on the plane like sardines with your nonsuffocient leg room. Like seriously, thenleg room you allow is great for an average 9 year old but when your 6 foot tall and you spend a 6 hour flight with your knees crammed into the seat in front of you and your seat is broken and won't recline. I remember why I always pay for for airfair to be comfortable and not packed like a sardine"
Pros: "Uncomfortable seats, zero leg room, a website that has yet to function properly without me having to call customer service several times per flight. Not to mention the "Low fares" Spirit offers you don't actually account for the money you shovel out for EVERY SINGLE EXTRA you can think of. I ended up spending 65$ on my last flight just to bring a carry on and choose a seat. Tie that all together with an angry, impatient, and unprofessional staff, and you result in a customer who will never be flying spirit airlines again."
Pros: "It was really, really cheap. Less than half of every other Dec 26 flight's cost."
Cons: "The terrible lines. The line to check my bag was horribly long-- even after the attendants made a line just for flights to my destination. There were just too few attendants working for how many customers needed to check bags or check in. Additionally, the seats were super small-- we were packed in like sardines. No amount of finagling or shifting would prevent me from touching either of my neighbors, even though I paid for extra leg room. And then you wanted to CHARGE for a CUP OF WATER. Not even a full bottle! I'm surprised you didn't charge for ice! All in all, I'm very disappointed. Won't be taking Spirit again."
Pros: "I liked how my flight went smoothly, and that the price of the ticket even with the cost of my purchased carry on bag, was immensely cheaper than all the other flights for that day. If you go off of comfort, this may not be the flight for you, but if you base a good flight off of how affordable it is, then I would recommend Spirit Airlines."
Cons: "I didn't like how the seats were not very comfortable, and they did not recline, or have any head cushion that can bend for your head to rest on. Yes, it sucks that you have to pay for a carry on bag, but if you can put everything into a normal sized school backpack, then you can use that as your free personal item. And if you have more stuff, then you just have to plan ahead, and pay for your bag ahead of time, as it will cost more than double at the gate. NOTE that if you have a layover, you will have to pay for the bag twice. I think that was the worst thing out of the whole experience. Don't count on getting free food or drinks either. Just bring them with you on the plane."
Pros: "It got me from Houston to Las Vegas without killing me . . . that's about it."
Cons: "From the booking process 5 months ago trying to fix an incorrect date I put in (had to cancel and rebook) English was not understandable. To their online problems. Couldn't get online to save paying an outrageous fee for luggage and online booking. Met with the standard go online and complain ? Rude unresponsive employees that garble off phrases so often and so fast as to be incomprehensible. Misinformation by the flight crew as to where the luggage would be. Smallest cramped seats I've ever been in. NEVER AGAIN. (this is not like me, I'm usually very easy going)"
Pros: "Crew was nice, friendly, and funny. 3 stars is because there is no actual service unless you flag them down to pay for things."
Cons: "WARNING: MUST PAY FOR CARRY ON BEFORE GATE. Spirit wants $45 for a carry on bag, and apparently $100 if you don't realize it before you get to the gate. I don't even know how much for checking one. So unless all you have is a handbag, add $90 per bag to the cheap looking price. Seat reservations are janky and can also cost you money. There's no app to check in, reserve seats, or view your flight, and their website has a terrible mobile user interface. The crew doesn't even ask if you want something, they just walk up and down with trash bags. That said, they were polite, professional and friendly. I guess you flag them down if you want to spend a bunch of money on Chex Mix and a soda or expensive beer. You have to pay to even get water or peanuts. There is no entertainment. The seats do not recline. If you have never flown Spirit, you're probably thinking "all that is too ridiculous to be true," which is what I thought when my Uber driver started warning me. Nothing above is exaggerated, just the facts. Never again."
Cons: "$100 extra for luggage"
Cons: "$55 for a carry-on baggage? $15 for a seat? A $190 ticket became a $315 ticket at the end of the trip. The girls at the ticket counter were looking at their cellphones and were not friendly, the flight attendants did not greet me when I got on or off the plane - both directions. It was an awful experience. I will tell all my friends to never fly Spirit. This was a huge miss, Kayak"
Pros: "The cost is excellent & staff was very friendly."
Cons: "Lack of communication. When printing out boarding pass, it flashed the flight was delayed @ 90 min, which I thought was weird. Just thought I'd check in later. When I called TSA in Kansas City I was told the same. So when I arrived at the airport they were announcing thaty flight was boarding, I went to baggage counter and was told I had to take my case on the plane, TSA security told me to take it to baggage counter. I told TSA I'd already been there, the 2 of them start arguing back and forth about my bag, if they would have taken my bag when I 1st went to turn it in, it would have been on the plane with me. However because they'd called final boarding, all my stuff got left in Kansas City. I've already called the airline to see if my bag made it to Vegas or not but haven't found out yet. As they have nt called me back. Oh the man in front of me was on my same flight & how nag made it on the plane. Extremely annoying for this to happen when it could've ALL been avoided as there was no one else behind me."
Cons: "Spirit airlines is VERY misleading. Yes it was the cheapest flight as stated but then there were the hidden costs. baggage for one luggage or carry on? Ridiculous when other airlines don't charge for the first one. A little overweight? A huge hefty fine. Pay for your seat?! There were no free seats at all!!! No complimentary snack or drink??? Charge for water!!! Ridiculous! The seats were like being packed in a sardine can and no recline which I had a terrible headache when the we finally landed! By the time I had to pay for the "extras" I could have flown first class on another airline! Never again will I will flight with Spirit and will highly recommend anyone else not to also!!!"
Pros: "If I want to fly somewhere with just my laptop and no carry on and no luggage, this will be the way to go."
Cons: "After booking this flight with Spirit (2 flights out and 2 flights back, and I'm not going to rate each one separately) I was ready to log in an pay for baggage because I did not carefully examine all the details when booking. We did not get a free carry-on and the price for paying for luggage was higher than expected. BUT that was just the beginning. In every flight I've been on before, you pay for your bags one, I had to pay for the bags each step of the way. And paying for luggage and carry-ons each step of the way meant paying over $300 for bags. I'm used to paying $30 per person. So my excitement at getting low fares evaporated instantly. I was now paying the going rate for the flight with a lot of extra hassle to boot. I was with my aunt who needed a wheelchair to get around the airport in a wheelchair. Other airlines had them available for us to use, but Spirit would only offer to call a service for us. They did not indicate what the cost of this service would be. They didn't say it was free and they didn't say it was not. I just found an empty wheelchair and used that, after having just paid more than $300 for baggage for three small bags, I wasn't into more surprises. But I had to use American Airlines wheelchairs which they were cool with, because Spirit refused to let me use theirs without the escort (paid?) who actually didn't show up in the few minutes it took me to think it through."
Pros: "Never fly this airline, they are horrible! I called several times about my flight because I knew I would be late trying to make the flight and they were rude. Customer Service is horrible. They cheat people out of their money smh. Terrible. I'm currently looking to sue!! Don't fly with them. No matter how cheap it is. Fly with Aleigant or Frontier first. Least they won't just keep your ticket money if you miss a flight they will make amends. SPIRIT is tacky, classless, and just overall a terrible airline. They need to be out of business. Seriously. Don't say I didn't warn you!"
Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "Dirty, small cramped seats that didn't recline, no TV, no complimentary drinks, and encounter with a very rude pilot and flight attendant from spirit who were passengers flying free who talked loud the entire red eye flight even after being asked politely to refrain."
Pros: "Friendly stewardess"
Cons: "The chairs are low budget seats cushions are thin with and the leg room is limited which makes the ride very uncomfortable. I travel with various airlines and this was my 1st time traveling with spirit. This is by far my most uncomfortable plane ride with any airline. The cost for all beverages Is another concern. It is practically a potential health concern for a customer flying 2 hours or more to not have at least water provided for free. The credit card only for beverage payment also is a inconvenience for a small purchase that could easily be settle with cash. In closing, I feel this company is a prime example of producing poor service when the airline try to cut cost then capitalize on every single accommodation at the complete expense and inconvenience of the customers."
Pros: "The price was low to book, but read on, because it wasn't worth it."
Cons: "Absolutely terrible in all other respects. After delaying the flight for 20 minutes or so (due to "maintenance issues"), the employee came on and said that the flight was cancelled. Not that Spirit would bring a new plane so we could all still fly out. Not that they would be taking a little longer to fix the issue. No, just that it was cancelled. Then, when the herd of people went to the ticket counter to get new flights or refunds, no one was there for about 30 minutes. When they finally arrived, they were unwilling to compensate for my $30 taxi ride. And they were generally unkind and unhelpful. This is unacceptable; I will not book Spirit again. Thank you for your understanding."
Cons: "We didn't even get on the plane. I missed my cousins wedding because they kept delaying us and after hours pf waiting cancelled the flight. I will never fly with them again."
Cons: "I was notified at 9AM that I would miss my connecting flight (flight was at 6PM). I called Spirit to fix this ahead of time, they said I needed to speak to someone at the kiosk. The person at the kiosk said I needed to speak to someone at the gate. The lady at the gate said not to worry, we weren't even getting off of this plane. 10 MINUTES BEFORE BOARDING, I'm told that I'm going to miss my connecting flight and that my options were to either sleep over at Vegas or fly out the next day. I decided to fly out the next day, getting to my destination at noon. Got home, looked up the flight that the man at the kiosk booked me, AND IT WAS GETTING IN AT 11PM THE NEXT NIGHT. I called Spirit, infuriated that the rep literally lied to me, and asked to speak with a manager. I was told that a manager would have to call me back (WHAT?). I have yet to receive a phone call. I will never, EVER, EVER, fly Spirit airlines ever again."
Pros: "the initial price for the flight"
Cons: "paying for seats,,the outrageous price for luggage,,waiting 40 minutes before they turned the seat belt sign off only to have it turned back on within 5 minutes. Even though the attendants were up and serving drinks in the aisle, they were turning people back to their seat that wanted to use the bathroom, while other passengers were allowed to get up and go to the bathroom. There was no turbulence and we had reached our cruising altitude. When the seat belt sign was turned off, we were warned that it would only be off for minutes because it was going to be turned back on for the descent. Will never fly Spirit again, lesson learned."
Cons: "Arrived 3 hours late with no real explanation, besides that they had to shift the bags around for weight distribution. I honestly feel lucky we even survived because it doesn't appear spirit has any clue how to run an airline. Won't ever choose spirit again, it's not worth the discount."
Cons: "I usually never post anything negative for a review, so here is my first one. I had an awful flying experience with spirit I will never fly with them again. I will keep it short and simple. They charge you for everything that your flight ends up becoming super expensive and its obscured until you get hit with the fee. First off, bag check in is ridiculously expensive. Cost me just about 100 dollars to check a tiny bag. The seats on the airline do not recline and there was absolutely zero leg room. Im not that tall (6'0), so there is no reason I should have to sit sideways on the seat because my knees are jammed into the seat in front of me. My entire neck and back became stiff when I got off the aircraft because of this. Water cost me 5 dollars. Do I need to say more? Water should be free. I left my long sleeve shirt in my bag that was already checked, so I asked a flight attendant if they had a tiny blanket ( It was so cold my jaw was shivering ) And she literally told me you should have brought one, we are not responsible for lending flyers blankets because its too cold.. Could not believe the awful experience I had with this airline. Never again. 1 star is generous."
Pros: "I disliked everything except how helpful the staff was when I almost puked because of the extreme discomfort of the seats."
Cons: "Being in that seat for 3.5 hours was the worst thing I have ever experienced on an airplane. I think I pinched the Vagus nerve in my abdomen and almost passed out on the airplane. I somehow was able to tell my wife that I needed help, she asked for water, they told me it would be $3 and I told them that I needed to go to the bathroom fast because I was very ill. Made it to the flight attendant's seat by the bathroom and sat there for a minute, then was able to open the bathroom door. Sat on the floor of the bathroom for about 5 minutes and was 100% better. Didn't even need to vomit because my circulation seemed to normalize after getting out of that horrible seat. Imagine - sitting on the floor in the tiny bathroom was more comfortable and actually cured me. They get one star out of 10 from my because they gave me free water. Otherwise it would be zero."
Cons: "this might have been my mistake I did not arrive 45 minutes prior to departure I was 6 minutes past the 45-minute line and they would not let me board the plane..I asked 4 times to talk to a manager all I kept hearing where she was at lunch and she would be down in a bit I waited for almost 30 minutes before I decided just go catch another plane on Southwest to Vegas kayak might want to inform all of their customers dealing with spirit Airlines that the 45-minute cutoff point is crucial...one of the problems is and I received a email from you the day before that it was moved to a different terminal so at the San Diego Airport even the people that work there didn't know where the Spirit Airlines was and there was 5 people behind me who had the same issue and this Airline will not work with us then they tell me it's too late the plan is already full...I did fly back from Vegas on spirit but what I thought was kind of bizarre with people still boarding the plane five minutes prior to takeoff...next time I go to Vegas I might just pay the extra money and Fly Southwest ...and besides that that plane coming back from Vegas did not sell mechanically strong it made all kinds of noises when we landed and everybody was even looking around like something was going to fall off the plane when we landed in San Diego"
Cons: "TICKETS ARE CHEAP FOR A REASON.. FLIGHT GOT DELAYED A HOUR BACK. AS SOON AS WE GET TO VEGAS OUR PILOT TELLS US THAT ITS NOT SAFE TO LAND AND HES GOING TO WAIT TIL ITS SAFE WHICH IS UNDERSTANDABLE BUT HE DECIDED TO FLY AROUND IN CIRCLES FOR 30 MINUTES. AFTER THAT HE SAID IT STILL WASNT SAFE AND WE LANDED IN LA INSTEAD OF LAS VEGAS. 4 HRS LATE ON ARRIVAL TO LAS VEGAS, AND ON TOP OF ALL THE FUCKERY, U DONT GET ANY COMPLIMENTARY SNACKS OR WATER. AND IF U DONT PAY FOR YOUR BAGS ONLINE THEY'LL HIT U OVER THE HEAD WITH A 60-100 TAB JUS FOR ONE BAG."
Pros: "when we landed safely"
Cons: "Shysters of the not-so-friendly skies! As a loyal #AlaskaAirlines customer, I hesitated before buying tickets on Spirit from San Diego to Vegas. After finding an online "deal" for Spirit, maybe $100 less expensive and a convenient flight time, I bought them. Spirit should be heavily fined, if not shut down, for their dishonesty. Upon check in, there was a surprise $55 fee per checked bag and $100 FEE PER CARRY ON bigger than a purse EACH WAY. No cash was accepted at the check in, gate or in-flight. This was not a problem for us, but felt bad for any person who forgot theirs. Once on the plane, Spirit charges $3 per water, soda or juice (inc $3 per refill). Cheap snacks started at $3 per small courtesy size though $7 per "luxury item" of cup-o-soup noodles. Icing on the cake of poop experience was our airline server. Shocked in to tears of laughter, the woman with the beverages walked up and barked "what do you want?!" To our row. I asked to buy the Moscow mule. She said, "where is your card? If it is not out of your wallet now I am going walking away. Other people want drinks and I don't have time for you to get out your wallet!" LOL!! I gave it to her, then she barked a similar rant at the nice people sitting next to me. NEVER, EVER will I fly Spirit again. The charges alone are so dishonest but the service is awful too."
Cons: "Spirit canceled our IAH to LAS flight last night. We found out just a couple of hours before departure and sprit did nothing to accommodate us with alternatives although there were several flights flying this route. No explanation was given for the cancellation apart from 'weather' which for all practical purposes could have been the weather on the planet Mars. other airlines were flying flights on this route just fine. Feel so cheated that an airline can throw your flight away at the last minute, for no apparent reason beyond their own convenience and greedy network planning, not rebook you into reasonable alternatives, and get away with it. It's not about the flight money. There were 8 of us meeting in LAS from different cities, those friends had to cacel their perfectly good tickets. And then the cost of hotels, show fickets, reservations made, not to mention the effort and anguish to recover from loosing all this at the last minute. Folks, ITS NOT WORTH IT!! It's not even that cheap once you add expensive bag and seat fees. STAY AWAY FROM SPIRIT. I guaruntee you, you will get burned. Remember what they say about when it looks too good to be true, it likely is. Spirit is a lie as a concept. They are only out to get your money and will never have your back. One more anecdote: the customer service rep tried to sell us a credit card after our 1 hour long call to try and process ticket cancelations. A CREDIT CARD WITH SPIRT AFTER THEY RUINED OUR TRIP! That's how insensitive and out for your money they are. Also, we tried to cancel online with the link they provided on their CRAPPY website and they would only allow travel vouchers as refund. Why would I want worthless spirt vouchers after a flight cancellation when I never want to fly you again?"
Cons: "they nickel and dime you for literally EVERYTHING. you think you are saving money purchasing a cheap ticket but once you add in your suitcase and God for bid a soda or coffe while on the plane you're at double the cost of the original ticket price. I know they warn you of the small amount of space but my knees were jammed to the chair in front of me, I'm 5'8, so not like I am abnormally tall. it was just a bad enough experience all around that I would advise no one to take the airlines, especially for a long routed trip!"
Pros: "The Crew and the seat trays that perfectly fit an iPad for watching movies."
