Delayed for 2.5 hours, ending up awitching planes. As we left Charlotte at 0035, no services were offered. It was not a full flight.
Plane smelled a little funny. Flight was 30 minutes shorter than expected, but gate was occupied when we arrived. Staff was great.
Cons: "Terrible logistics. Stuck on tarmac because they couldn’t clear the previous plane out of the gate. Fellow passengers missed their connecting flights."
Cons: "Canceled flight caused me to remain in a hotel for another day. Confusing check in. No one to help. Machines broken. Unable to disembark from the plane. Bad logistics all the way around."
Cons: "It was excellent trip regarding service."
Cons: "American Airlines is on top there game"
Pros: "Seats weren’t too bad, the plane was clean, and the crew was nice."
Cons: "Our flight kept getting delayed due to paper work AFTER we boarded. There were also a lot of people on the plane and no social distancing."
Pros: "The crew was super polite, even with the delay."
Cons: "I wish the seats were more comfortable."
Pros: "It was a quick and comfortable flight, no complaints."
Pros: "The plane was super comfortable"
Cons: "The crew of boarding was very rude"
Cons: "Same old tiny uncomfortable commuter jet."
Cons: "Being offered a cup of coffee would be nice"
Cons: "Flute gate changed 35 min prior to boarding to a new gate that was a 10 min walk. That was stressful. The flight ended up being delayed 20 min as well."
Pros: "Loved the individual monitors"
Cons: "Having to go to a different line to pay for a heavy bag"
Cons: "Charlotte airport needs to stop taking the protective cover off of my suitcase and I don’t get it back, this is the 2nd time that this has happened in Charlotte and it keeps costing me money to buy new covers and my suitcase becomes more damaged because they treat other’s belongings with no respect."
Pros: "Very short flight, crew was great"
Cons: "In Orlando we had a connection to Alaska Airlines to Portland, Oregon. No one knew where it was. Gate attendants told us to look on flight board. Not listed!"
Cons: "More leg room"
Pros: "The entire experience was amazing."
Pros: "This was a quick flight - 39 mins I also got an upgrade too"
Pros: "The plane was very quiet"
Cons: "I don’t like the stand to put your own iPads on. Just give us the screens. Seems cheap for a 5+ hour flight. Come on american."
Cons: "4 hour plane availability delay - of course planned on weather but not planning"
Pros: "A cheap option to upgrade to 1st was offered that ended up being a net 0 cost upgrade for me so I took it. Comfortable on an old (but oh so nice) aircraft."
Cons: "Arrived 30 minutes early to the airport but then had to sit at a remote pad so that we ended up being 5 minutes late to the gate. A short transfer was made even more difficult, and a massive waste if time and fuel sitting and waiting. Figure out your gates early and better, and move around if needed. At the very least, bring up some stairs and buses to get passengers to the terminal and then tow the aircraft in when you have a gate available."
Pros: "We were 40 minutes delayed but received good communication and had an uneventful flight otherwise."
Pros: "The pilot was great. Avoided turbulence and arrived about 20min early. Easy to find seat and stow bag. Smooth takeoff and landing."
Cons: "Alaska airlines was who I thought I was riding with but the itinerary changed past min. Gate change and the airline itself was changed. Really confusing since I printed my boarding pass the night before."
Cons: "Horribly made me cancel flight because of 1min after 30 min cut off for boarding pass. Sat at the front desk for 29 minute arguing until my plane left."
Cons: "Boarding was poorly set up."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly."
Pros: "It made for a interesting Christmas but not a very jolly one."
Cons: "The flight staff skipped my aile a few times on accident. The touchscreen didnt worl very well, they offed free headphones but my headphone jack was broke and all of the usb charger ports didnt work in my row there werent many new choices for entertainment. And the food was interesting I'll give it that."
Cons: "We arrived in Amsterdam at 9am, after traveling two hours to get there. We found out right away that there was a delay and chances of missing the connecting flight from Philadelphia to Orlando were great. We requested a different booking to insure travel to Orlando, which was denied. So the connecting flight was missed and after hours arrived in Orlando at midnight. Missed my ride and all car rentals were booked. All this caused a lot of anxiety and unnecessary stress. Very disappointing. And to add to it, the flight itself was horrible and there was no entertainment available for the entire flight."
Cons: "Sitting next to a bunch of crying babies"
Pros: "Poor airplane not have nothing"
Pros: "Time in air was quicker since we left so late"
Cons: "We spent 45 minutes on the ground in miami waiting for rake off in a hot airplane with no real air. Babies were crying because of the heat and everyone was sweating and complaining."
Cons: "Change of gate without notice because of this I lost my flight and I had to stay at the airport overnight the next flight was seven next day and the person out of content wass not nice at all she was so rude that didn’t make it easier for me !!"
Cons: "The flight was delayed more times than I can count, we got a different reason each time. Weather I can understand, but telling us we are waiting on a specific crew to arrive and then announcing that crew is not for our flight was just terrible communication. No one seemed apologetic. The only thing they did was bring a snack cart over for us, and that got raided by children so many people didn't get anything. We had arranged transport from Orlando to Tampa for that evening, and our rides had to cancel because instead of 7pm we were now arriving at 130am. Your airline's mistakes put everyone at an inconvenience and we weren't offered assistance to fix it. My husband went to ask for help in arranging new transport home, but he couldn't even get to the front of the line. The customer service was terrible. We really enjoyed our first leg of the flight home with American Airlines, but after the second leg and all of the problems we had... we will not fly with American Airlines in the future."
Cons: "Flight was late, got a message from Kayak that it was delayed 3 hours...thank goodness I happened to check again, because then it was only delayed for 41 mins, then it gave me an update that it was only 21 mins delayed, then went back to 41! Pretty inconvenient, and it would have been nice to get a text, not just some silent pop up"
Pros: "Got to La Guardia almost 26 minutes early but then waited FORTY minutes for the gate!"
Cons: "AA needs better coordination with the horrible La Guardia airport"
Pros: "Flight was on time, staff was friendly and boarding was organized."
Cons: "I'm a small person (5'-2", 105lbs) and I didn't have room to breathe in that tiny little seat."
Pros: "JAL is customer oriented and it's always a pleasant experience. Unfortunately, though the return trip is also JAL, the cabin crew isn't."
Cons: "Only suggestion would be to make the connection process a little easier. If the passenger doesn't speak English, the fact you need to print the international ticket in Miami, then re-enter at checkpoint might create confusion."
Cons: "It was a full flight, anyone in loading zones 7-9 were required to check their carry-on luggage. We were in loading zone 6, so not required and preferred not to due to our full day of air travel that would continue into a 3 hour car trip. My husband reached the gate, his ticket scanned, and let onto the plane. I walk up next, my ticket is scanned and then the personnel at the gate said in what I can only describe as the most disrespectful, inconsiderate, ill-tempered tone that he would need take my bag. He grabbed it out of my possession, shoved it into the luggage sizing rack and even though it did fit inside the lines, he said it was "too close" and would need to be checked. Not wanting to cause a scene and quite frankly speechless by this man's attitude, I did not object.. It was not until I was seated on the plane that I noticed more than a dozen items of luggage larger than mine and that the vast majority of people that had 3, 4, 5 carry on items when the maximum is 2: one personal item and one carry on luggage item. It was both the lack of respect and the lack of consistency that lead me to have an extremely "poor" boarding experience. Serious retraining needs to be completed and boarding attendants should not be able to harass airline passengers."
Pros: "Non stop"
Cons: "LATAM took our luggage from a flight from a different airline that we used to get from Miami to Orlando. They locked it up and closed before we arrived. My friend was unable to get his medicine, I missed vital time from a work contract, and we had to spend the night at the airport waiting until 1pm today to receive our luggage. This is the worst experience I've had with an airline. No one spoken with on LATAM seemed to care. We were stranded without sleep and got no clear answer from the LATAM hotline. There was no mention of compensation for our troubles. I will not be recommending this airline to other travelers aa this has ruines my work schedule and my friend is unable to get his medicine."
Pros: "Nice pilot, one of the flight attendants were nice. The seats were comfortable."
Cons: "This airline always has delays! There is no in-flight entertainment (music, tv, movies, etc.); thus, the flight was terribly boring! Also, only peanuts and a small cup of soda was offered to us. Other airlines give cookies and biscotti! The seats don't recline and they need more legroom. The majority of the airline crew largely ignored us and showed mediocre customer service."
Pros: "I don't know how airlines get away with all the stipulations and regualations they have in the buying process there is. Otho g I like about the scam artist they are"
Cons: "The fact they they can just make it a policy and then because the employees have to have a job and enforce it blows my mind. 200 dollar transfer fee plus the difference in the ticket when it's over two weeks in advance. You people are scam artist"
Pros: "You provide me with the best ticket prices and to me that was the the most important part of of the trip thx"
Cons: "The airlines charging for your luggage"
Cons: "Not the Airline’s fault but the uber for my mom was directed to the national side of the airport which isn’t where the Allegiant terminal is (internacional wing)"
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Complementary waters atleast and boarding on time"
Cons: "Was surprised to see 0 social distancing in the plane. It was packed and not everyone had masks. Should be mandatory."
Cons: "We had a 40-minute mechanical delay."
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable"
Cons: "It wasn’t explained to me that Zone 2 allowed no storage of bags overhead. What was that $50 fee for? Hidden fees confusing."
Pros: "This crew was amazing"
Cons: "The seats are very hard."
Cons: "I tried to cancel this trip but was told I would have to pay more in order to receive a refund. Very disappointed customer as I have traveled with Allegiant many times and the one time I try to cancel my flight, I’m told I have to pay a fee which was more expensive than the actual price of the ticket. Waste of money."
Cons: "Late to load and then put us all on the plane and made us sit on tarmac for over 1 1/2 hours"
Pros: "Not bad for the price, convenience beats all"
Cons: "First class"
Cons: "Pathetic rationale for delay"
Cons: "I booked two tickets at the same time through kayak and was assigned a seat not next to my son! Because the flight was fully booked there was no ability to rearrange seats."
Pros: "The crew were very friendly."
Cons: "the seats were pretty uncomfortable, that was my main problem with the flight."
Pros: "Crew was friendly, boarding process was easy, spacious aisles"
Cons: "The seats do not recline and are not very comfortable. Drinks and snacks are not complimentary"

Cons: "Very uncomfortable"
Cons: "on time flight. Accurate info on app. Correct seat assignments"
Cons: "Woke up to a notice saying my flight was delayed 2 hours. So I took my time leaving. Then Got another notice saying it was delayed only 16 min. I live 1.5hrs away! Several people missed the flight because of this."
Pros: "The plane didnt crash :) Friendly attendants."
Cons: "NO WIFI. Flights are delayed often, what looked like a brand spanking new plane had the most uncomfortable seats ever, felt like sitting on wood in the exit row. You get what you pay for though."
Pros: "The staff were friendly and helpful and boarded us in an orderly manner."
Cons: "Staff are part time employees and do not arrive to check in counter until 1.5 hours before flight. When flying out of this airport you do not need to arrive 2 hours early."
Pros: "Nothing to like!"
Cons: "Allegiant has an obscure boarding policy that shuts down online and in-person check-in 45min before departure. We got to the Allegiant desk 35min before departure to get our boarding passes and no luggage to check, and were told we missed the flight because check-in wasn’t allowed anymore. That policy should be made very visible and clear to anyone buying tickets on Allegiance as no other airline does that to passengers. We lost 4 tickets and had to buy tickets for a flight the following day. Horrible experience!"
Pros: "One hop flight"
Cons: "cramped seating, no wi-fi or on flight entertainment, low class of traveler, noisy older model aircraft,"
Pros: "Going in & out of small airports."
Cons: "We arrived late. Pricing system."
Pros: "Flight attendants were nice."
Cons: "There was no one working at the counter when we arrived at the airport and there was already a sizable line. We waited about 10 minutes before anyone showed up to assist customers. Not sure what was up with that. Very uncomfortable seats and crowded seating on plane which is typical these days everything else went fine. Flight left and arrived on time."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and smiled a lot. Non stop flight from easy and for me, convenient airports. I knew food cost extra so i brought my own."
Cons: "I knew my comfort would be cramped so that was expected. My only complaint was we couldn't understand the boarding instructions at the gate when they were calling zones. The microphone stunk! So because we couldn't understand,, people got in line who shouldn't have yet, and others didn't get in line that should have which seemed to really annoy some mouthy jerk in zone 5....who then had to turn around while boarding bc he forgot his phone, lol. Karma. So, that was my only entertainment and it was pretty great."
Pros: "Great airport for getting to Florida. Good prices"
Pros: "We were delayed on takeoff, but pilot made up a lot of the time I. air"
Pros: "Like the newer plane. The crew was nice."
Cons: "I purchased 2 bulk head seats for more leg room and because they changed the plane, my seats were no longer in the bulk head. We didn't have extra leg room and I would like a refund for the price I paid to upgrade my seats. It is impossible to get service on the phone, since even the customer service number the flight attentendant gave me, still put me on an unbearable hold time. Please refund my money for the seats that you did not provide me with."
Pros: "Crew was friendly, seats were very tight. Have to pay for water."
Pros: "The staff and crew are extremely polite and focused on good service."
Cons: "The seats on the Allegiant MD-80 don't recline AND the space between one row and the next is EXTREMELY tight. Much tighter than I have seen in an airline in a while."
Pros: "Nonstop on time and as expected"
Cons: "Left late"
Cons: "First flight being cancelled"
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: "Flight went smooth"
Cons: "I checked into my flight with luggage to check in. The lady behind the counter said I could not check my luggage that the only way for it to get on the plane was to take it through the TSA checkpoint. They confiscated everything in my bag that was over 3oz which was quite a bit of stuff hence the reason why I was trying to check it in. I will not be flying Allegiant air again."
Pros: "Cleanliness, friendliness, on time."
Cons: "Charging for drinks and snacks snacks.."
Pros: "Comfort and speed of the flight. Attentive staff!"
Cons: "Need one craft beer"
Pros: "Everything was good"
Cons: "Could of had more selections on the flight for snacks"
Pros: "Everything was great during the flight but..."
Cons: "We were delayed over 7 hours, with only a $50 dollar future airline credit and an $8 meal voucher. That's not nearly enough for that kind of headache. It was 2 am before we arrived at our hotel."
Cons: "We sat for five hours waiting for a thunderstorm to end on a hot plane with no drinks."
Cons: "Even snacks and water are only available for a fee. Seats do not have much padding and are not comfortable."
Pros: "Crew was amazing & child friendly."
Cons: "They arrive to the airport over an hour early and went to the desk we're asking them to print my ticket they informed me that they cannot check me in at the desk I had to do it online I didn't have the ability to do that so therefore I miss my plane"
Pros: "Setas were good. Good price and good boarding system"
Cons: "Aircraft cabin was a bit dirty"
Pros: "The price"
Pros: "Crew polite, clean plane"
Cons: "Late, delayed. Price deceptive, extra charge to reserve seat and carry-on bag."
Leave on time and not wait for 40 minutes to be unloaded. Also I was throwing up for most of the flight but unless I wanted to call the paramedics, I was to stay in my seat.
Pros: "For low fare it’s ok"
Cons: "It’s ok as we travelled as low fare"
Cons: "Staff could be friendlier"
Cons: "SERIOUSLY, no WiFi purchase option??!"
Pros: "Quick boarding,"
Cons: "45 minute delay.... not great"
Cons: "Uncomfortable sits"
Cons: "The flight from St. Louis to Orlando was delayed therefore the flight from Orlando to San Juan was also delayed and I was not given a chance to go home. My only option was to receive a $20 meal voucher and wait in the airport another 24 hours. The staff was rude and there was no communication between one flight crew to the next. Worst experience ever and I'll make sure to tell all my friends and relatives never to use your airline."
Pros: "The crew was wonderful"
Cons: "In one weekend had two flights that were very delayed. Plus the return Orlando flight the cabin pressure was not regulated very well."
Pros: "Well, I got there safely."
Cons: "The seats, having to pay for seats, having to pay for a drink, 45 minutes wait for bags, etc"
Pros: "1 star, not applicable (didn't get food/drink), no entertainment. Flight was very early so that was nice!"
Cons: "Scented air not the same scent throughout."
Pros: "Friendly crew, and on time flights."
Cons: "Having to pay extra to sit together with my spouse, when the tickets was purchased together."
Pros: "The leg room was very good. The flight was right on time! The plane was neat and clean. The price was the best. Nice crew."
Cons: "I'd have liked a drink and a snack since the Starbucks next to the site was so slow I stood in line 1/2 hour and left without getting to the counter for coffee! Doesn't everyone take luggage - just add it to the ticket price so one can know the actual cost."
Pros: "Straight to Orlando"
Cons: "Seats just not that comfortable"
Pros: "Excellent price and an overall smooth process. The Frontier app has gotten a lot better and I'd like to continue seeing improvements."
Cons: "For the price you can't really complain, but it'd be nice if pretzels were handed out for free and maybe have a few magazines in the seat backs. A few small improvements would go a long way."
Pros: "Very satisfied with frontier airlines. I was initially concerned because the ticket was so cheap. But all that went away when I Boarded the plane. The seats were comfortable, the staff was nice and the flight was nice"
Cons: "Baggage fees"
Pros: "The price!"
Cons: "Everything costs extra,"
Pros: "Kind, helpful, clean, friendly."
Cons: "I'm small and I still think there's just not quite enough room for each passenger spot. Sure, you can buy a seat with more room, but everyone can't. There's just not enough seats that give enough butt and leg room."
Pros: "How fast I got to Orlando."
Cons: "No free juice."
Cons: "Upon reading the instructions for baggage requirements, and following said requirements. I was surprised at the fee for the first bag. This would have been a determining factor in selecting a flight based on cost."
Cons: "The flight delays the near miss on the runway had to do an evasive manever...lost luggage no clothes for wife had to purchase new clothes .....totally I don't know"
Pros: "Cheap airfare"
Cons: "Forced to pay for my carry on which was of size but because the attnendants were unaware of their policy I was charge ls an addition $90 to bring on a carry on while the other people I traveled with were not charged a dime."
Cons: "Bought my tickets for my parents. My moms brother found out he had terminal cancer and wasn't going to last but 2 weeks or so a day before they were scheduled to depart. When my parents were scheduled to leave my dad tried asking for Frontier airlines to give my mom a voucher for another flight so she could stay a few days longer until he passed. Frontier airlines refused and then tried charging my dad a cancellation fee of $96. The whole reason I paid for my parents trip is because they had no money and then Frontier airlines tried charging double price for cancellation fee. My mom then had to buy her ticket home for $190. We have always used Southwest Airlines in the past due to their no fees for luggage and very accommodating to cancellations. Upsetting that during extremely hard times in our life we have the stress of picking to stay with you sibling until the end or not missing your flight."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and nice"
Cons: "No entertainment and need better bag policies with prices"
Cons: "The only attention from flight attendants was to solicit me for something to buy. They were reluctant to provide even a glass of water but did provide it but not courteously."
Cons: "No refreshments, not even water."
Pros: "Cost of flight that's it!"
Cons: "Had to do add ons such as , seat, bags and even a soda , may have been same cost on another airline ."

Cons: "They charge for everything. I pre checked my bag at a cost of $70. If I had waited to do it at the airport it would have been $90."
Pros: "Price of ticket"
Cons: "Long delay. Lack of communication from airline staff to passengers on reason for delay. Horrible experience overall."
Cons: "Bag fee, carry on fee, pick seat fee, were bad.enough, but 11.00 for 2 sodas and snacks,, then asking for a tip was too much. Will pay more for any other airline."
Pros: "Plane was on time."
Cons: "Had to pay for my luggage on top of the fares. Next time I will stay with regular airlines."
Pros: "Flight departed and arrived on timr"
Cons: "Pricing structure. Misleading. Seats...horrific."
Pros: "The flight, the crew, the updates from the airline and Kayak was great. Frontier is a great company and very affordable."
Cons: "The airline increased the bag fees for the summer without an obvious communication. Very unfair and un professional from such a company. I paid $10 extra than 5 days before. The only problem with Frontier is that to check in bags there is only 1 maybe 2 people taking bags for full planes at least 100+ passengers. As it is cheaper and better to check in bags than carry on the airline should make this proccess more efficient. I spend at least 20-30 minutes to check my bag each wat ok my last trip. Very unefficient!"
Pros: "The staff was courteous"
Cons: "The unaccompanied minor fee"
Pros: "Flight was timely"
Cons: "Luggage was filthy dirty and damaged. It was not this way at the start of the trip."
Pros: "...the ticket agent who got me checked and put me through priority TSA so I could make my flight!"
Cons: "The assistance of a front counter agent was horrible and made inappropriate comments to me due to me being late to my flight which was due to a faulty shuttle and short staffed rental service as if I was aware of airline policy! Even though I wanted to avoid all of lines to check in (only carry on bag) but all kiosk where out of service which why the lines where so long...the snide remarks and rude comments were not appreciated especially in front of other patrons, thank God another agent to assist me after the line agent moved me another customer up due to our flights."
Pros: "Like that fact of none stopped"
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that everything needed a credit card"
Cons: "The seats on this aircraft have got to be the most uncomfortable seats that I have ever experienced in an Aircraft."
Cons: "You charge extra for everything."
Pros: "I loved everyone's positive and comical attitude! I've never seen so much positivity and fun from and airline staff before! Because of this, I truly enjoyed flying with Frontier and will keep flying with them. Great prices and even better customer service! Thank you!"
Cons: "The gate was very rude and refused to get a supervisor. The flight was closed early.we did not get home for two day .purchased another flight from American cost 500.00. Still did not make the connection. Still at the airport attempting to return to STL. Horrible costly experience."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, great staff, easy boarding directions. Overall great flight."
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "The extra cost for everything including picking your seat"
Pros: "Was prepared for bad things to happen but flight staff was professional and things went great."
Cons: "Long line at airport for checking in. Paying for a seat and 1 carry on making ticket was rather pricey"
Pros: "Flight was on time. Crew was very professional."
Cons: "Charge for seats, stowed baggage and food/drinks negated competitive air fare cost of other carriers. Will not use Frontier again! Wheel chair attendant and wheel chair were not available in Orlando when we arrived."
The flight price was really low. The seats were not that comfortable.
The prices on snacks n beverages can be better
Left on time and arrived early! Deplaned quickly and all around efficiency
Pros: "Nothing ! Flight was uncomfortable"
Cons: "My daughter was charged $65 for carryon that followed the required measurements. And the gate agents were extremely rude about the situation! We were not charged on the previous flight with the same bag."
Pros: "Not contable seats at all!!!"
Cons: "They should offer a snack and drink for flights!!"
Pros: "Seats were close the front"
Cons: "Due to that fact that Covid-19 is present and we have to wear masks and stay six feet apart... I feel that he flights should not have been full... how can u stay six feet from someone who u don’t know is covid free when u are sitting on top of each other... Orlando airport is the worst airport I’ve ever been to.. they only had a limited amount of restaurants to feed a overcrowded airport... spirit airlines is the worst airline of all and I will never fly with them again... they changed my direct flight from Baltimore to new Orleans to Baltimore to Orlando then to New Orleans with no warning.. that was was very unprofessional... I definitely do not recommend to fly spirit ever again... I will still use kayak in the future for travel"
Pros: "Seat very small and is plastic based"
Cons: "They charge for carry on bags $60"
Cons: "The airlines cancelled the flight an hour before. Then only offered a refund or a flight 24hrs later."
Pros: "Plane was clean crew was friendly"
Pros: "Few were friendly"
Cons: "Clean the plan before starting the boarding process"
Pros: "Cleanliness and nice staff"
Cons: "A woman sitting next to me had her full size purse on her lap the entire flight and it was difficult to move. The rule is everything goes under the seat in front but it didn’t apply to her."
Pros: "The crew was good!"
Cons: "My flight was delayed 3 hours"
Cons: "If the flight wasn’t so packed"
Cons: "I payed for your big chairs in the front and they didn’t recline back at all. Spirit, your seats suck as well as all you feed for EVERYTHING"
Cons: "Deben dar algo de tomar"
Pros: "Crew was fine. Seat was like any other."
Cons: "What is the point of "social distancing" when you pack every single seat sitting on top of one other and throw out the guidelines the second you step on the plane?"
Cons: "Spirit crew back in SJ a little unfriendly"
Pros: "Everything, it was my first plane ride and although the crew didn't know that fact, they still made me feel welcome!"
Cons: "Nothing comes to mind, it was all very well done."
Pros: "The Flight was amazing."
Cons: "Nothing. everything was perfect, thank you for taking me safe home!"
Pros: "The crew was entertaining."
Cons: "Flight was entirely too full for social distancing."
Pros: "We made it safely"
Cons: "Awful experience. Early in the day I received several updates about my flight being delayed. No details on why, but much appreciated. Upon arriving to the airport the flight was still showing 59 mins delayed. Oddly, with all of the early communxaruin, it suddenly ceased! No communication for at least 2 hrs before the flight. Even as the 'would be' boarding window, the line formed with people asking questions... yet there were no answers or updates to the proposed time of departure. Even when the 59 min late departure came and went, there was NO communication. Folks were in an uproar! Finally, with no announcement, the gate attendant just started checking boarding passes and letting people go through the gate. Huh? I have zone 1, yet he said, we're just boarding everybody.... and, on the 3+ hr flight, only 1 bathroom worked. AWFUL EXPERIENCE!!!"
Pros: "Bad experience I was sitting in the last row and half way through the flight one of the toilets got clogged and started to overflow and smell up the area. There was a puddle of water running down towards the isle and the crew member was telling her colleagues to leave it alone and let it run so she can see how bad it gets for when we land. Extremely unsanitary and unexceptable to travel with that smell and conditions. Plus to top it all off towards the end the overhead bin got jammed and I had to wait for someone to pop in open, again its unfortunate I had to go through this. Never again, I would not recommend spirit sorry."
Pros: "Crew was nice. However the spirit airline attendant at the desk told me to gate check my bag. I stood there waiting for someone to grab my bag for sometime. So I asked the stewardess and she told me just to bring the bag in and put my carry on in the over head compartment."
Cons: "However the desk attendant came on the aircraft took my bag out of the overhead compartment. And then left it outside or the plane. I waited at the airport for until 1:30am before I got a confirmation that the back was in fact at Newark still. I had a nursing convention to go to and I had no clothing. So I had to Uber to Walmart than Uber back to my hotel. So I didn’t get any sleep. I didn’t check into my hotel til 4am due to a negligent spirit employee. I paid for the checked bag and there was plenty of space in the over head compartment. She caused me unnecessary stress and an embarrassing morning with my administrators due to my lack of sleep."
Cons: "Could not fault Spirit Airline. They are clear and open about extra charges. Joining their reward club is beneficial if doing multiple flights with the airline."
Pros: "Plane was ok for a low cost"
Cons: "Boarding; always delays with Spirit."
Pros: "Crew were polite, but one did not take her time to look at every passenger when picking up the last trash. She walked by us very quickly without looking at all. When I asked if I could give her our trash when she was on her way back to her seat, she said, “we’re all done now, sorry” and she kept walking. The pilots did a wonderful job during take off, during our flight and landing! We’re all blessed for such a safe flight."
Cons: "Zone 4 appears to be the largest zone to board the plane and did in fact take the longest. I think the zones could be broken up better and should be so that apart from the benefit of boarding early, the rest of the paying passengers don’t have to wait for long periods of time to board, our satisfaction should matter too. Also, my 5 year old was super sad and disappointed that the flight did not serve snacks (even though we ate while waiting at the gate for our flight to arrive). He looks forward to the snacks that many airlines serve aboard. Just thought I’d mention that."
Pros: "Certain staff were friendly and helpful"
Cons: "This was my first flight with Dpirit Airlines and I was greatly dissatisfied. Here's why: 1. Not easy to pay for baggage online; complicated and time consuming. 2. Not clear when I purchased ticket that I would need to pay for carry on as well as checked, this felt sneaky and dishonest. Be open about charges. 3. Was not given a a boarding pass for second portion of my flight. 4. Seats don't lean back so was not able to rest very well. 5. Bright floresecent lights inside plane unpleasant and also made it difficult to rest. 6. Certain staff were short and unfriendly."
Pros: "Seats were nice and stewardist."
Cons: "Was running late because roads were almost to point of non drivable. Zero visibility. The spirit machine would not print my boarding pass. It said see an attendant for assistance. I checked in day before flight. The man at first would not help me print my pass. I couldn't pull my pass up on smart phone but I had the receipt and confirmation. Finally he helped and printed my boarding pass. People shouldn't be treated like this. I pay my taxes and I don't have to choose spirit. I can fly through another airliner. The fact that he was giving me a hard time on Christmas was even worse. If I acted that way at my job I'd be fired. Thank you for sending me your survey and have a great day and a happy new year."
Pros: "Flight crew was amazing! Quick, courteous, responsive."
Cons: "TSA precheck. My reservation indicated it was entered, but it didn't print on the ticket. When I brought this to the attention of Spirit CSRs, The answer was "Yeah, sometimes it does that." Unacceptable. TSA precheck is a convenience for passengers and, more importantly, an added level of security for TSA personnel. Prechecked passengers have already been background screened. These passengers are known safe entities in an uncertain security environment. Each person prechecked is one less security threat TSA needs to assess, meaning TSA can focus more effort on potential threats. Denying a precheck customer precheck status makes everyone's life more difficult. Fix your system, then train employees on how to appropriately deal with these issues."
Cons: "Although weather conditions were not Spirit's doing, on the return flight we had to wait in the tarmac for 3 hours to unload and 2 hours to retrieve baggage, we had a very rude crew member that eventually had a passenger return his rudeness with the same. After 2 hours of waiting was when Spirit decided to offer us 3 oz of water and a tiny package of cookie. Thank God for no medical emergency, but they didn't come out and offer actual bottles of water and/or a real snack. Terrible consideration toward the passengers."
Cons: "Flight was 2 1/2 hours late. Big front seats only barely bigger than regular seats. Flight attendants were more like salesmen - pushing the spirit credit card. Flight attendant very brisk as I initially sat down. I wanted to get something from my bag before stowing it in the Compartment above me. She literally took it out of my hands and said I couldn't have the bag out. The plane was still boarding, I was standing in front of my seat, not in the aisle, so passengers could continue to pass by. Very rude."
Cons: "Spirit airlines is the worst airlines by showing cheap ticket prices, but then charges you for getting a seat and carry-on bags. Their customer service is just as bad. Had a medical emergency and a family member had to be taken to the emergency room on the departure day and although the ticket was unrefundable they gave me a stinken $60 credit that has to be booked in the next month. Unlike the other airlines I was flying back on that gave me a FULL credit of the unrefundable ticket price to be used within the next year! Kudos to American Airlines!!"
Cons: "Check-in at reservations section was terrible...there were 2 lines of passengers checking in and 1 line had 3 agents checking passengers in and the other line had 1 agent checking passengers in. We were second in line...in the wrong line with only 1 agent checking passengers in...we waited 20 minutes to get helped, because the party in front of us (with 2 in line) actually had a ticket for 6 passengers (4 of whom showed up several minutes later), who had to decide/pay for luggage options ,etc.. If you have 2 lines & 4 agents, 2 agents should be serving each line...enough for me never to fly Spirit again!"
Pros: "We got to the destination safely."
Cons: "Reason's why I rated each category poor: Overall - see below categories Boarding - We were told that our bags did not count as personal items, and we had to either pay $130 to carry on two bags or throw them away. Basically, "Have a nice trip, let me start by robbing you." Crew - During the flight, I used the on-flight lavatory. As is normal in most flights, there's no space between the last row of passengers and the mini-room at the back of the plane. To keep from putting my rear in another passenger's face, I stepped into the mini-room until the stewardess commanded that I wait behind the "silver line." Sorry other passenger. At the least be courteous about your command with me and/or the passenger who had to sit in the rear (pun intended). Comfort - No seat back storage, and the flight was as cold as is bearable for the average person. Food & Entertainment - None available. Upon asking for water, we were instead offered ice."
Cons: "I don't like when you just arrived at the airport and everybody is standing up in the plane it should be in for sized to stay seated and exit the plane just as you enter the plane first row second row third throw I think the stewardesses should announce this and make it clear and not do one big jungle everybody trying to get off the plane at the same time also was taking your carry-on off the overhead it should be emphasized that where you see that this is your place above and not people from the front sticking their extra luggage over your seat"
Pros: "Staff and crew were polite, friendly and competent in spite of a significant overbooking situation to solve (unless this is typical Spirit and they're just used to it)"
Cons: "We chose not to "purchase" seats so as to keep the flight price low. What I did not realize in that is how close we came to almost not having a seat. About an hour before the flight came the inevitable "we are overbooked and will compensate for anyone who wants to take a different flight". Shortly afterward came the announcement that the plane they were expecting was significantly smaller than anticipated and the last 30 people to check in who did not purchase a seat would be bumped - too bad so sad. Fortunately for us we had checked in right at the 24 hour mark and were not part of that group of 30. Bag fees are quite high and size limitations are much more stringent - we needed to use different suitcases so as to not exceed their maximums."
Pros: "Used Kayak to find cheap flights that fit our time frame. Spirit airlines proved to be a quick and reliable airline getting us to Chicago 15 mins early. When departing Chicago email notifications kept us up to date on possible delays of flight caused by weather conditions. I called Spirit customer service representative and changed my flight to avoid the worst of the weather. They were able to make the changes and honor the seating arrangements I had made for my family of five. Great experience!!"
Cons: "Customer service was terrible before both of my flights. Both times I was not assigned a seat and had to go to the counter to get it. When I got to the counter no one had boarded the plane. By the time everyone had borded the plane I was still in the line. I had already told the representative that I needed a seat. I was getting anxious because I did nnot want to lose my flight and attempted to talk to both reps to see what was going on. One told me I had to wait for the other rep, without even looking at my face. The other ignored me many times until he heard me complain to another customer."
Cons: "When we checked online to see if the flight was on time, it stated that it was delayed over 2 hours. We still had our daughter to the airport within 15 minutes of the originally scheduled flight. When she got to the terminal she was told that the flight left early, there were no more flights, and she was charged $99 to rebook for the next morning. The attendant was also rude to her, once she was able to get her off her (personal) phone. I believe they should have actually apologized for the inconvenience instead of charging her. This airline is the WORST."
Pros: "Good people working, all seemed nice. Even if some of the experience is less than spectacle, you know what to expect on spirit."
Cons: "Boarding: can't check in online early, if you are going to assign seats then why use zones, either board from the back of the plane by row or go by zones, but it's silly to have a seat number and still deal with zones. Can't pick a seat without paying, that's just silly. Block off the seats that need to have an upcharge and then let people pick seats if they want, it just keeps people happier and costs you nothing. Other: you should not ask about food or entertainment since the food on the plane costs money and most people don't purchase it, especially on short trips like this one. And there is no entertainment available, so asking me to rate it is pointless (plus if there was entertainment, I'm sure that would just be another purchase item). Seats: are mediocre at best"
Cons: "All in all, we were delayed about 45 minutes, but it's how it happened that was so frustrating: There was an inexplicable pause in boarding, which was obviously a delay that was never communicated on the airport terminal displays. Then after we boarded, we were informed that the bathrooms weren't working and anyone who needed to go would need to get off and then we could leave when they were back - another delay. Then we were told the bathrooms would work we took off, so some people went back to their seats. Then the story changed and the bathrooms were not going to work and be locked for the whole flight, so a bunch of people had to get back up to deboard the plane. Keep in mind, this was a late evening flight to Orlando, so plenty of tired kids with small bladders aboard."
Pros: "The price is right for the base fare, but Spirit gets you with all the extra fees. Baggage cost is very high, and higher at the airport if you don't 'pre-purchase' bags to check online. The weight allowance for checked bags is only 40 pounds with massive fees for heavier bags, and they charge for carry on, too. Checking just one 30 pound bag doubled my total cost of flying, and it would have been more if I hadn't pre-purchased. They even charge for water on the plane, which I find really bad. Maybe it's just me, coming from Australia where you're legally required to provide free water, but this rubs me up the wrong way. They also charge if you need agent assistance to check in at the airport. The staff were all very polite and friendly, and the overall experience was fine, but the extra fees do NOT make it worth it. It makes the guests feel unwelcome and each extra step and extra charge makes the whole experience more stressful and complicated. You could pay a slightly higher base fare with United, for example, but probably save money with more generous baggage/check-in procedures, and have a worry-free experience, too. The staff were great; it's the company policies I have a problem with."
Cons: "Ridiculous fees and charges for every aspect of the flight. Not a fan. Probably won't fly with Spirit again."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed 3 hours for mechanical issues. The staff at the gate was the unprofessional...rude, sarcastic and just plain miserable. I even witnessed a shouting match between the gate crew and a customer who walked up to ask what the new time for take off was...She answered his question by stating, "the same time I said 5 minutes ago." The male passenger didn't hear the announcement (because she talked so fast). He kept asking and she kept repeating her snarky response about "the time time I just told you" until it became heated. Absolutely ridiculous. Not much improved when we made it on the aircraft. It felt like it was a shell of what a "finished" aircraft should look like. All in all a pitiful experience. I hate that I already purchased my return flight with Spirit. Saving $50 was NOT WORTH IT!!!!!"
Cons: "They would not let us on the plane despite being there 25 min before the flight left. They said we had to check-in online, which we tried twice to do, but it wouldn't let me because a balance for our baggage and seats did not go through. Interestingly, when I entered the credit card info it never once told me the credit card was invalid or that any issue had occurred. When I called the number it gave when it wouldn't let me check in I got an automated system that had no option for "speak to a representative" or "check-in." The ticketing counter told me they literally can't print a ticket after 45 min until flight and Latrobe's single gate TSA checkpoint "closed" at 6:30 for this 7 flight. Meanwhile, I watched "security" walk behind the counter when we got there. Spirit refused to refun is the money for the flight. We will never fly Spirit or out of Latrobe PA EVER AGAIN."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very friendly and the pilot did a great job. There were bad storms in Orlando but you wouldn't know it with the flight. All Spirit flights I have taken have had good pilots and friendly flight attendants."
Cons: "When I arrived at Chicago-O'Hare to check in, there was a line around the block for only Spirit Airlines. They had 2 people working at the kiosks and both were slower than molasses. There were several employees that walked up to the kiosks but none of them assisted customers. They had no urgency at all. On top of that, the lady that I interacted with was very rude. She talked to me like I was a complete moron and apologized that another Spirit team in Orlando "didn't do their job properly but O'Hare employees follow the rules". Overall, not impressed at all and I will avoid booking with Spirit on future flights."
Cons: "Them charging $100 at the gate for a carry on. My carry-on was a normal size bag which I have taken on MANY flights with different airline and have NEVER had any issue. When I checked in they did not say anything. At the security the attendant marked something on my boarding pass but did NOT advise me that my bag was big by their standard. When boarding the plane they saw my boarding pass and asked for $100. It was then they informed me that when I checked in they should have charged me $55 which is their rate. But at the gate it is $100. Since I was at the gate I had no choice but to pay the $100. $55 for carry-on bag that all other airline has not issue with is ridiculous. Having to pay $100 for a CARRY on bag is absurd. This was my first and last time with Spirit airlines. Nor will I ever recommend Spirit airline to anyone."
Pros: "liked the cost. flight was good plane was clean but could have been a bit cleaner (windows) seats we good (could have been a little softer) I noticed that some of the flight crew were not as focused on their attention to the passengers. I did notice that the stewardess in our area (who sat right in front of me (exit seat )) was on her cell phone texting or playing a game or what ever young people do on their phones. as a travelling public person, my comfort level or expectation is that all the time I am on board, that the crew is on duty and focused on their duties, which should include, not being distracted by using personal electronic devises at anytime. Secondly, the uniforms that the attendants wore seemed to be a little less cared for or clean as other airlines. Lastly, (this may be picky,) but it seemed that the hair of a few of the attendants seemed unkempt at a level in keeping with the beautiful airplane we were in. There was a steward that came on the plane who looked light his shirt was too big (collar was too big for his neck) as was the size of his coat. As a business owner myself, I appreciate the small things, as these can be the things that overshadows all of the other things we do to provide a good product, service or experience for our customers. Personal inner Professionalism is a mindset that transcends and fuels ongoing service, at levels which a rule book alone cannot attain. (employees who are proud of where they work, who they work with and for, end up delivering on our promises as owners.) I like your web site and appreciate the "fun" you have built into it. I understand the message it sends, but as we know, most people expect the lower fares from Spirit, but don't get the steps you must take to be able to provide those fairs and still cover ALL THE BILLS. Continued success in the future. Jim Holland"
