Baggage claim took forever.
Pros: "They held the plane for us due to the air tram malfunction at DFW!"
Cons: "2.5 hour delay no explanation"
Cons: "Cool AC, it was hot! AC barely working or set too low."
Cons: "I hate pretzels. Another option would be cool"
Pros: "Friendly crew, smooth flight and comfortable seats."
Cons: "I always have preferred American Airlines but they seem to have constant problems with the aircraft these days. This causes delays and missed connections. This in turn causes no breakfast or lunch or dinner opportunities. I travel with snacks in my bag at all times now just in case so I won’t get sick for lack of nourishment or water! This last flight I missed my connection altogether and had to take a shuttle home, then catch a ride back to the airport to pick up my luggage and then get my car to drive home. It was 4 hours past my expected time home."
Cons: "Lack of entertainment and snacks for a 3 hr flight"
Cons: "Was not allowed to get on slightly early with a car seat and a 3 year old to get situated in the seats, though on every other flight we have been allowed to. There was a delay that caused us to miss our connecting flight."
Pros: "Seats very comfortable"
Cons: "No money for baggage registred"
Pros: "Everything was good!"
Pros: "I feel like there is more leg room in the seats then in other discount airlines! I like the snack and drink, this breaks up the flight a bit. This is nice for me because I don’t like to fly."
Cons: "The staff seemed miserable. No one was nice or even smiled. Just felt like they couldn’t wait for this leg of their day/trip to be over."
Cons: "American’s little buses at DCA suck. Why should I have to wait for everyone who gate checked a bag to get to the terminal? Let me walk to the terminal, get more buses, or get more gates."
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Poor ratings for food Is result of not eating any food. No entertainment."
Pros: "Loved being able to watch new release movies and many different tv showed plus being able to listen to music thought the flight."
Cons: "Didn't like sitting in the emergency exit row next to the bathroom. Everyone uses it to stretch their legs and they end up standing on top of you most of the flight."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Crew was very helpful"
Cons: "the staff were not knowledgeable on visa requirements at checkin in Reno. As a result my checkin took long at the counter. Small CRJ700 plane was cramped though fast."
Cons: "I think things would run so much smoother if the plane was loaded from the back to the front. That way you don't have to wait as long for people to put things in the overhead and then sit down."
Pros: "Flight box waste of money for sure. The middle seat was vacant and it was fantastic. We travelbwith a guide dog."
Cons: "The boxed food"
Pros: "Flight attendants were great. Special note for Payton very attentive to my needs. Great personality. I will fly AA if all attendants are half as good and responsive as she was. She definitely deserves a raise."
Pros: "Automatic ticket rebooking"
Cons: "It being cancelled."
Cons: "They didn’t board us closer to the front just because we had an hour layover. Barely had time to go thru customs n tsa to make it to the gateof our connecting flight."
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Not a lot of snacks"
Pros: "The counter attendant was helpful in changing our seats so could sit together."
Cons: "The flight attendant when first boarding was extremely rude. We had a bag we brought on three previous legs of our total travel which was considered by all of the other attendants as a personal item. This particular attendant very rudely informed us it was not, and we needed to check it. When we tried to explain the previous flights she responded with “I just explained this to the other passengers...it’s not allowed.” We didn’t argue, and gave the bag to the personnel in attendance, but the tone for the duration of the flight continued."
Pros: "Great pilot. Outstanding control over the plane. Arrived an hour and a half before originally forecasted three days prior."
Cons: "Delays without updates, rude flight staff, lost baggage"
Pros: "Mechanical issues caused a 75 minute delay in taking off."
Cons: "Several delays"
Pros: "Crew did the best they could considering the situation."
Cons: "There were multiple delays, leaving half my flight with missed connections in Phoenix."
Pros: "Smooth flight- communication from the pilot, free beverage, movies, what more could a person ask for"
Cons: "No leg room."
Cons: "delayed and missed connecting flight"
Pros: "Great attendants excellent customer service"
Cons: "Awful TSAs"
Pros: "Crew was extremely nice. I dont' like to fly and the take off was so rough, I spent the whole flight in the bathroom. The flight attendant gave me ginger ale and pretzels and let me sit in the back so i didn't have to go back and forth. The other flight attendant had aroma therapy that helped a lot but i was just too freaked out. Those two made the flight as nice as possible."
Cons: "Very rough take off but that is mother nature not the air line :) Took off almost an hour late. LAX scheduled too many flight to land at the same time, Had to wait on the runway in Reno."
Pros: "Snacks and beverage"
Pros: "Clean, smooth flight, on time."
Cons: "Small plane claustrophobia, entertainment required your own debice"
Cons: "Flights were continually delayed along with gate changes that had virtually nothing to do with weather. They lost our checked bag. And on the way back made me check my carry on and lost that too. Will never fly on American again!"
Cons: "Missed my connecting flight to to 3 delays."
Pros: "We left 55 minutes late. Person at counter was annoying. Kept grabbing the microphone, think he liked hearing himself talk. Wanted to valet all the carryons but there was room in the airplane for them."
Cons: "being late and uncomfortable seats."
Pros: "Flight was one time."
Cons: "It was a standard boarding. The standard ride. I have nothing to complain about"
Pros: "Flight research tools."
Cons: "After choosing seats through this website we were kicked out of all of them and was separated from my partner. Every single flight we took was late and we missed a connection due to a late take off. The low cost was not worth the extreme effort and connecting flights."
Pros: "Boarding was easy & seamless"
Cons: "Had to lie about forgetting my phone charger in the waiting area to get off the plane & give my niece a hug who arrived early on a neighboring flight from NY to RNO as we switched off to take care of my dad who just had a triple bypass. If two people are past security - there should be NO ISSUE with them meeting - we have already been screened & a hug or anything else should not be a crime."
Cons: "I still have not received my luggage"
Pros: "Medical emergency response and support was excellent."
Cons: "No pre-boarding for infant. Straight legroom in 13D still had seat in front recline into my knees at 6'5". Extra legroom purchase did not provide any extra legroom. Need to know what seats provide extra legroom for 6'5" tall passengers."
Cons: "The previous crew did not do some kind of check so leaving Reno was delayed which left almost no time to get to my connecting flight. No one seemed very happy at all."
Pros: "Nothing. I will never fly an American / American code share flight abroad again. I cannot believe they are flying this plane for trans-continental flight in 2016."
Cons: "1980's 757. Literally, I flew on planes like this in the 80's. American, please get with it. This was a horrendous flight. No in flight entertainment at all in 2016 on a 9+ hr. flight is unacceptable. Couple that with 1.25 hour delay AFTER the plane boarded. You should not be flying narrow body jets on flights this long. Much less ones with old, uncomfortable seats and zero entertainment options. I don't mean to sound entitled but this experience was night and day in every capacity (comfort, food, service, entertainment) from my flight to Europe on BA. Sad. Lastly, I sat next to a off duty American flight attendant who was quite rude."
Pros: "Politeness of the crew"
Cons: "Not very spacious and entertainment only offered at My own expense"
Cons: "Broken down seat cushion ."
Pros: "Quick flight (made up for lost time), good pilot, smooth landing."
Cons: "- Delayed by 30 minutes or so at take off - Too cold in the cabin, no more blankets to provide - Overhead compartments were full so people with a luggage where asked to get back to the front of the plane to check in their luggage. Very inefficient process as there were still people trying to board at the same time - No in-flight entertainment"
Pros: "Very good and safe"
Cons: "Everything was great"
Cons: "The rubber chicken in first class was awful. Drinks and wine were good. Service was excellent."
Cons: "Boarding delayed an hour, and another one hour until takeoff. I was late for my meeting for an hour. :("
Cons: "They delayed the flight 4 times. Very unprofessional"
Pros: "Leaving this company in the rear view mirror"
Cons: "Everything was awful"
Cons: "Sat on the runway way too long. Hot. Cramped plane"
Pros: "- orderly boarding - calm crew despite many frustrating circumstances which delayed the flight"
Cons: "- Had to wait for catering to deliver carts before take off (this also caused a weight balance issue) - After carts were delivered, we were informed catering had forgotten one which caused more of a delay - While we were waiting, the plane started to become unbearably hot - After finally taking off, we were promised free Directv access for the delay but the entertainment was turned off 5 min into the flight due to technical difficulties"
Cons: "Delayed for hours, luggage was lost"
Pros: "Never again 1st class with United. Other than the bigger seat, really not much of a difference that would justify the added cost. I’ve been on many other airlines 1st class. I will say that with h United, it’s just not worth it."
Pros: "Lovely timing. Great crew"
Cons: "Seating is very tight and amenities are nada."
Cons: "i had no space & couldn’t move because passenger next to me should have been required to purchase TWO SEATS!!! I could not move entire flight & he had armrest up & took up my space & full plant so i could not move elsewhere. my neck is still killing me because i had to turn my head to stay away from his face. i will NEVER fly united again."
Cons: "They cancelled my flight and made it seem like it was my fault. Took forever to speak to someone! I had to drive to San Francisco last minute because they cancelled the flight two hours before my flight!"
Cons: "I paid 6 dollars to watch TV but the headphones plug in wasn’t working well."
Pros: "Easy very organized loading."
Cons: "Really nothing"
Cons: "Very turbulent flight"
Pros: "United - standard and expected fare!"
Cons: "How can they put you all inside a plane, pull out from the gate and then talk about gate delays for 45 mins? Another 15 mins on holding pattern. All this hoopla for a 45 mins flight!!"
Pros: "Our flight was delayed leaving RNO, and the check-in agent moved my seat up to the front even though I had the new "Basic Economy" so I'd have a better chance running to catch my connection upon arrival. She also put my backpack in one of those plastic bags. DCA did not do the same for me."
Cons: "Small CRJ, so seats were smaller as expected. Short flight though."
Cons: "Flight turned out to be 3 hours total instead of 1 1/4 hrs because of delays at both ends"
Cons: "Delay getting off due to weather the crew said. This flight was very mediocre – seat was tight, crew were not very social or pleasant. Captain did keep us posted and was apologetic and kind."
Pros: "At least we didn't crash and die"
Cons: "I've flown with United before, and I've only had nothing but trouble. Decided to give them one last try, since their flights were a few bucks cheaper. Big mistake. They canceled my return flight last minute, and scheduled a new one over 24 hours later. Thus causing me to have to book a hotel last minute, as well as now being AWOL, since my Leave paperwork only lasted until my return date. Had to explain to the chief why I won't be at formation. I'm saving myself the trouble and never flying united again, even if I have to spend more money. United isn't even reimbursing me for the hotel. They basically told me to go f**k myself and file a complaint. They can eat a d**k."
Cons: "Every flight delayed 2 hours plus"
Pros: "Crew was very kind, helpful, and informative."
Cons: "Outlet doesn't have USB slot for charging."
Pros: "Arriving to my destination."
Cons: "The flight crew was rude, walking through the aisle sounding bossy, not courteous. I've flown united in the past and not had issues but on both united flights this trip, highly disappointed in the experience."
Pros: "Was able to fly standby and get home earlier. Crew member was nice and friendly."
Cons: "Small plane with limited overhead space, so had to check my bag which caused some confusion in Burbank because my bag like similar to another passenger's bag. Limited food choices. Bought prepared lunch, but wish I had more choices."
Cons: "Tight uncomfortable seating"
Pros: "Easy to board and everyone very friendly"
Cons: "Nothing negative to say"
Pros: "It was quick but full"
Cons: "My missed / delayed luggage."
Cons: "This is the second time I have had a flight flat out cancelled to Burbank from SFO for blurry reasons. I was told it was an air traffic control issue. I was re-routed to LAX, which defeats the entire purpose of booking this particular flight."
Pros: "One flight, we sat next to ssomeone with a cat in her lap that threw up and pooped the whole time. The second flight a drunk man yelled the whole flight."
Cons: "No food. Horrible service"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by two hours to wait for crew that was delayed elsewhere as they were coming off duty and had to presumably fly them back to Burbank so our entire flight was held to wait for them."
Pros: "I was on time. I liked the view."
Cons: "I don't like when they leave me at the gate in my wheelchair. I don't like it even more when they take the wheelchair. I feel really uneasy when I am left at the gate. So I have the wheelchair pusher let someone know from the gate that I am there and will need assistance. Once again being sexually assaulted going through the metal detectors. Outside of being foreign most of the United employees seem like complete morons. Also there was that same bag in front of me. So my legroom was restricted."
Pros: "It got me to Boston!"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats!"
Pros: "Everyone was very polite and easy going. Definitely kept me comfortable(:"
Cons: "Our flights were all cancelled or delayed and they gave us nothing to apologize. We lost 2 whole days of vacation and the cost of our rooms. All of the customer service people were rude. One lady in particular was so rude I had to walk away from the desk. The movie on the plane skipped and was unwatchable. I hate this airline and would pay more to fly another one."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for almost 5 hours and then cancelled. This delayed my trip with family to Missouri and inconvenienced many people. On top of that, due to cancellation had to stay in hotel without my luggage and my pills that I have to take daily. Worst experience ever!! I need compensation for all this mess!!!!"
Pros: "It was a quiet and smooth ride."
Cons: "I had no indication that my flight was actually with united and not air canada. I almost missed my flight as a result. Was incredibly stressful."
Pros: "Looks like almost all flights were delayed here. However we were abke to be rerouted yo catch connecting flight thanks to the quick thinking of service staff at terminal. Food/free snack was lacking. Some staff seemed a little short and less attentive. Leg room is a joke with coach."
Cons: "Delay delay delay of flights. I need united to have planes ready on standby in case of delays. This is a serious ongoing issue that no one in planning is paying attention to. So PAY Attention! Will someone please hire a snack maker that can make good low salt, healthy snacks?!"
Cons: "The crew workers attitude"
Pros: "Customer service who helped us switch flights from Burbank to LAX was helpful"
Cons: "Booked and paid for a flight for 4 had no seats, put on another flight that was delayed for 5 hours. Sat in Denver airport for 6.5+ hours with small children. Could not get seats together on second flight"
Pros: "Comfortable. Crew was pleasant."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "Everything was fine"
Cons: "Hour long delay."
Cons: "Four hour delay"
Cons: "Entertainment was announced, yet nothing came up when I connected with the United app."
Pros: "Once we got going, the flight was quick"
Cons: "We were delayed multiple times! We were late to our car rental and cost us 3x as much to make a new reservation, cause our original rental place was closed"
Pros: "The flight was fine and the crew were nice."
Cons: "Gate agent was too much. A family had not been required to pay for carry ons on their outbound trip but she required them to pay $250. English was not their primary language. The mother apparently swore in Spanish- agent threatened to call police. Disagreed with FA, kicked off family."
Pros: "The crew was very good, the plane was clean. The seats seemed brand new and were relatively spacious."
Cons: "I was not made aware that the regular seats do not recline as they do on all other airlines I have ever traveled on. Since I was taking a long, red eye flight it was impossible to sleep. When I asked an attendant I was told that they are 'predesigned for your comfort'..."
Cons: "We waited in line at the check in counter for an hour and a half. There were only two people working and probably 300 people in line. Then going through TSS....took about 30 min....we had to RUN just to catch our flight. Even though we were there almost 2 1/2 hours early. Made for a very stressful start"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly."
Cons: "Flight was late, excessive baggage fees, plane was dirty, there was trash under the seats in front of us."
Pros: "Boarding went ok with no problems"
Cons: "Good thing o had an isle seat. The two people in the seats beside me were large and that made the one setting beside me take up part of my area. Part of my body was covered by her the entire flight except when I got up to go to the bathroom. Leaned into the isle most of the flight. Really annoying to have half a seat."
Pros: "What wasn't there to like. Flight departure was on time and we arrived early. Exactly what every traveler desires."
Cons: "Can't think of a single thing."
Cons: "Excessive delay (more than 30 min) in baggage claim at Austin"
Pros: "The crew were excellent"
Cons: "We had to wait because the flight was delay. That is ok. Then wait again almost an hour to the airplane to depart. The wait again when arrived because another airplane was at our gate."
Pros: "It was on time, no delays."
Cons: "One of the stewart type dudes was a bit smartassyy. Also why do they still push those carts down the middle of the isle? They hold up everyone trying to go to the BR. Why not have a conveyer belt that runs just under the ceiling bring drink orders as they go?"
Pros: "fast boarding for my zone"
Cons: "the flight attendants on this flight had a lot of attitude straight away, one in particular. was rude to several passengers at boarding and deplaning. it was a redeye, but they kept the overhead light on the entire flight and talked at top volume for the entire time. no one in the rows around me slept because of this."
Pros: "On time and cheap! Crew was hilarious and kind."
Cons: "Be aware-Frontier's initial low rates are much higher with $35-45 PER checked bag and per carry on. Nothing is free on these flights- not even water...."
Pros: "Flight was good. Left on time. Person boarding customers could of spoken clearer. Very muffled."
Cons: "An hour wait to get my luggage in Columbus. Landed around 12:25 am. Didn't get our luggage until approx. 1:20 am. As a single lady having to drive home 2 hours this hour delay was ridiculous. Plus it cost more for my luggage coming from Las Vegas than going out. Your whole luggage procedure is terrible."
Cons: "It was a very rough and uncomfortable, no drink, not very nice flight staff"
Pros: "Efficient, expedient in terms of checking in and boarding"
Cons: "Although I knew about the charges for carry-on luggage. I was surprised that some people were able to bring oversized bags unto the overhead bins. Those bags should have been checked. And some people had more than one on board bag. They had backpacks, handbags and plastic bags. customer service of crew was inconsistent. Some crew were professional other crew were hurrying, and stressed, others acted silly and tried to clown around. This is not a big deal just an observation. The seats should recline"
Pros: "The price. Took off and landed on time."
Cons: "The seats are not comfortable. The leg room is short."
Pros: "The crew was fine. The plane was clean."
Cons: "When I booked the flight I was not given a chance to choose my seats and was charged $16 a seat when I checked in. It took 45 minutes to get my luggage after my flight! Didn't appreciate them trying to get me to sign up for credit card on the flight!"
Pros: "Cheap airfare. Stretch seating option."
Cons: "Where do I start? Going to Vegas (from Chicago), we sat on the tarmac for 90 minutes with no explanation. We finally took off after that, and no attempt was made to regain lost time. In fact, the flight took even longer after we were up than the original plan. The seats were very uncomfortable. I don't know if the seats on the return trip had more padding, but there seemed to be a noticeable difference between the two flights, not just by myself, but noticeable in the lack of squirming on the second flight by everyone else as well."
Cons: "The plane had by far the most uncomfortable seats I've ever been in. They might as well have had metal fold-up seats. I paid extra for a specific seat, and when another passenger took it, a flight attendant gave me a hard time when I asked them to move. I was unaware that I'd have to pay $40 just for a carry on until AFTER I booked the flight, in which case I would've just chosen a better airline."
Cons: "We were charged for every little thing. From carry on to checked baggage to snacks that are usually included. By the time we were done it was mot expensive then a delta or south west. Not to mention how uncomfortable the seats were."
Pros: "My knees where jammed into the seat infront of me causeing them to fall asleep sp i was standing up randomly the whole flight but the plane was clean and everything else went smooth"
Cons: "Lots of delays and cancellations. Customer service is not helpful. They only care about their ticket and will not reschedule you with another airline."
Pros: "If you're flying frontier your not doing it because of how luxurious it is. You're doing it because it's cheaper than most. Yeah they rob you with the bags and paying for anything not water on the flight. But what can you expect for the cost? The crew is almost always good from experience, but customer support online is a nightmare. It is by far and away the worst customer support services I have encountered. The actual people that work at the airport and fly are good but if you need to make a call you are screwed."
Pros: "Friendly staff."
Cons: "Seats don't recline, and the tray tables are a little bigger then the boarding pass. Fine for a short flight but not a cross country one."
Pros: "Nice size plane, non-stop, Las Vegas to St Louis terminal good, boarding very good, flight crew and pliot excellent"
Cons: "Cost and comfort, the airfare was normal but when I arrived at Las Vegas Airport, bag fee $40 (to high), seat on plane very poor (no cushion did not recline) cost for soda (terrible) the flight crew was great but fees spoiled my flight. I will not be flying Frontier unless it is last resort."
Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "Paying for a carry-on was completely unexpected. Ridiculous costs just to pick a seat. No snacks or drinks included. When all is said and done, you basically end up paying the same as a different airline with more amenities included."
Pros: "The price was the draw, but it is very true on Frontier Airlines "you get what you pay for""
Cons: "Seats were very thinly padded, small and non adjustable. The price for both CARRY ON and checked luggage was the highest I have found, $45 carry on and $40 checked. The price for a drink of any kind, water, soft drink and so forth was way too high. Anything to eat was also out of line. If you are diabetic be for warned, bring your own. My flight from Nashville to Las Vegas was so bad, as far as hidden fees and customer service goes, I tried to book a on any other airline for the return trip to Nashville. This was even though I had a round trip ticket on Frontier. To my dismay all other airlines were full. I am writing this review as I wait at the gate for a departure time on my Frontier return trip, we are 2 hours late for departure with no new departure time given. There are not any Frontier employees in the gate area to give updates. This is the bottom of the barrel for airlines and I will not ever be flying Frontier Airlines again."
Pros: "Flight crew was very nice and courteous. The flight itself was smooth."
Cons: "Seats do not recline and not enough leg room. When boarding they should let people in the rear of the plane board first."
Pros: "In order to seat a child and parent together they moved me towards the front of the plane."
Cons: "When they did I saw the exit row had no one sitting there. I asked if I could sit there and they told me no. I would have to pay the up grade fee. IS THAT NOT A SAFTEY issue, not having ANYONE in the exit row to open doors if needed."
Pros: "The flight was very good. It was on time and crew was nice"
Cons: "You have to pay extra for everything which was a bit much. It was cheaper to have luggage checked than carry on which did not make cents."
Pros: "Available flight on the day we needed"
Cons: "- $40 per checked bag much higher than the standard $25 - Check-in system tries to trick you into paying an extra fee to select a specific seat (skipping this step will generate a non-upcharged seat automatically) - Rude flight attendant (3 separate interactions / 2 separate passengers) - Person was able to board wrong flight (but somehow his ticket scanned? wtf??) - Had to put backback in overhead (never had to do that before) - Tried to charge for a drink"
Pros: "I highly recommend them, will use this airline again"
Cons: "Only thing that they wanted to charge extra for window seat and plane wasn't fully booked, otherwise the best service"
Cons: "The airplane was uncomfortable. No entertainment. No real perks for every upcharge we encountered. We were charged for soft drinks, charged for selecting seats, and charged for carry-ons. Then on top of that at the end of our flight back to Nashville, we were being oversold a frontier credit card that wasn't that great of a deal. The stewardess was rude, strict, and just plain unfriendly."
Pros: "Crew was great. Price was even better"
Cons: "Tray tables too small."
Pros: "The pleather seats seemed clean"
Cons: "They would not let me check in before my flight. The online site was not working and I got to the airport a bit late due to traffic . When I got there I was told it was too late....there was no line in security and could easlily get to the gate. I was 40 minutes early and since I was not 45 minutes early they wouldn't let me check in. I had to wait until the next day for a flight back. Missed work and they didn't seem to try. So annoying . Will never fly with them especially when you factor in the bag fee of 60 I could have taken a better airline"
Pros: "Only positive was that it was a red eye so I slept through the in air portion."
Cons: "Delayed for 2.5 hours apparently to wait for flight attendants from another flight. Seat confusion amongst passengers. Seats are worn and terribly uncomfortable."
Pros: "Prompt departure ,trouble free flight"
Cons: "Did not realize the price of my ticket didn't include a seat. Upset to have to pay for a seat each way and pay each way for a carry on bag"
Pros: "Friendly staff."
Cons: "Seats very uncomfortable, tight space, knees/legs cramped. Can't believe the additional prices for a seat, like I have the option to stand! So ridiculous!"
Pros: "Price and optional add on items"
Cons: "Tight seats"
Pros: "It was a direct flight"
Cons: "That they charge for luggage and while boarding it looked to me as if anyone could have brought a carry on and they wouldn't even noticed or checked to see if it was paid for... so why bother charging!!"
Pros: "This was a red-eye flight, and half the price of Southwest, even accounting for the charge for a carry-on bag. Crew was efficient, though they had a limited selection of fairly-priced drinks."
Cons: "Seat was abysmal - literally a hard plastic chair. Sleeping on it was uncomfortable."
Pros: "Comfortable Flight - On Time"
Cons: "Nickel & Dime-ing -- I would prefer one set price for everything instead of bag fee, change fee, seat fee, drink fee. ETC."
Pros: "Friendly staff, punctual departure"
Cons: "Tiny trays, snacks weren't free, chairs didn't recline for red eye flight"
Pros: "The flights were exactly on time, and the crews were very friendly. The boarding process was appreciated because people with carry on bags are allowed to board first, which helps with overhead compartment space."
Cons: "The hidden seat assignment and carry on baggage fees were unexpectedly high (at least $11 to get a seat and $30 for a carry on bag, both one way, and apparently both fees would have been higher if I had paid at the airport). I ended up paying $88 on top of the price of the ticket, which would have been nice to know for budgeting purposes."
Cons: "I took two different planes for my round trip and both Frontier airplanes had trash all over the floors."
Pros: "I will never fly frontier ever again. The absolute worst airline I have ever been on."
Cons: "There was not one positive thing about this airline. Everything was horrible. The most uncomfortable flight ever. Seats don't recline. Have to pay for carry on bags. Everything was terrible. Don't fly frontier. Also you have to pay for water on the flight which is another thing you would never do on any other flight. Don't waste your money with frontier stick with southwest or any other airline."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable. Also after paying the extras, not sure if it's worth to fly a "cheaper" airline."
Cons: "I didn't like how we were notified last minute about our flight being delayed for THREE hours. There was no voucher offered as well. Completely terrible."
Cons: "The guy at the check in counter didnt know hiw to help me with the online feature to pay for my bag.."
Pros: "No line at check in"
Cons: "Additional charges, seat, checked bag, 2nd carry on. Checked bag was higher for the trip home. Added $89 to my cost which made the price the same as an airline that allows baggage for free with free drink/snacks and roomier/ reclining seats."
Pros: "I was completely informed on the luggage charges from the time at booking to the email sent to me days prior to leaving. So my wife and I made sure that our carry on baggage would fit the sizes that are provided. There were no baggage charges and hassles. The plane actually left early and returned early, Thank you."
Cons: "I prepaid for a checked bag. I thought I should get that refunded because I missed my flight. I was running late and there was a line to check the bag and then missed the flight."
Cons: "Hardest most uncomfortable seats ever!"
Pros: "Horrible, horrible, horrible in all ways. Unreasonably aggressive boarding staff, very disorganized and chaotic. Dirty, uncomfortable seats, 4 delayed boardings and departures in a row - will never fly Spirit again."
Cons: "Virtually everything."
Pros: "When I got my seating assignment, not only was it a window seat, but it was also one of the big seats in the second to front row."
Cons: "There were no in flight movies."
Cons: "Pay for each carry-on $55 for outbound and same for inbound, that s a rip off"
Cons: "After boarding the airplane, all of customers were asked to leave the airplane and waited over 2 hours to board the airplane again. The arrival time scheduled was 11:00 pm but actually arrived after 2:00 am."
Pros: "the service is good, schedule is on time, and the price is very cheap. It's a good choice for a 2-hours flight."
Pros: "I love the comedy flight attendant!!!"
Cons: "The seats on the plane are horrible there so straight up and there so close together . So uncomfortable . The plane was very cold as well."
Pros: "Nothin...round trip and it sucked both ways"
Cons: "You pay to upgrade seats, would it be to much to ask to tell that only the first row reclines? You get what you pay for"
Cons: "Major delay - ended up switching flights for the following day."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing!"
Cons: "This is the worst airline. Extremely chaotic boarding, it seemed like I was in a third-world country. Nothing about this airline is good. They lure you in with cheap airfare though when you begin to add costs for everything they charge separately it's cheaper to fly AA or United or Southwest. The charge for WATER on the plane. The list of everything I don't like is too long for me to waste my time on this most substandard of the substandard airlines."
Pros: "The flight attendants were friendly"
Cons: "2 hours delay and not provided any explanation and very few updates during the wait. No offer of compensation, even the full charge for luggage was still requested. The lengthy solicitation of the credit card was tacky."
Pros: "I upgraded to the big seat which is a must when flying with Spirit."
Cons: "During the last hour of the flight, I was woken up by a gut wrenching stench. I'm seated in row 1 and look up and this male is wiping himself down with paper towels, at first I thought he threw up all over himself, the smell became so bad everyone was coughing, gagging. The flight attendants started soaking the air with a harsh air freshener. Then the man started spraying the inside of a duffel bag with the spray. The flight attendant bent over and said his duffel bag is full of puppies! Wow. Why would he be allowed to bring that on a 5.30 hour flight. Then he's soaking these pups with air freshener. I was sick to my stomach. The only thing this guy was worried about was his new sneakers. Pathetic excuse of a human being. I still feel sick, and my throat hoarse from the smell of chemicals."
Pros: "Flight left on time"
Cons: "staff was not professional nor helpful. baggage fee is outrageous for carry on."
Pros: "Good Pilot good Landing smooth ride"
Cons: "This crew was also unprofessional I did not feel comfortable with them"
Cons: "long bag drop line and argumentive customers fighting and causing a scene."
Cons: "Delay, delay and more delay to get back to Oakland. I DO NOT recommend this airline if you have a scheduled meeting. You won't get there on time. Use other airlines"
Pros: "The boarding process was good. T The staff friendly, but should smile!!"
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable."
Cons: "Never got to Vegas because Spirit cancelled my flight w no alternative"
Pros: "The crew was very nice, jovial, made a lot of jokes and kept it light. The airplane, upon boarding, was clean. That's the best I can say about Spirit."
Cons: "Spirit has lower costs, but at a price. To check a bag is another $50, and $55 to carry it on, and while you can get discounts on this if you sign up to be an awards member with Spirit and manage it PRIOR to your flight, this was not explained anywhere in my original booking. Food and beverages are SO overpriced - it's clearly a major profit center for Spirit. The plane was not comfortable. Very tightly crowded, seats do not recline, no back pockets for storage, no entertainment or WiFi - bare bones comfort. At the Las Vegas airport, we waited in line to check our bags at the Spirit counter (the only option for bag checking) after signing in at the Kiosk for over 40 minutes, and at 45 minutes until our flight was about to take off, finally took our boarding passes so we could go through Security. If Security had been busy, we would have missed our flight. This was NOT handled well as they kept calling other flights to "jump" the line. Basically, Spirit touts a lower-cost airline for a small downgrade in comfort. In reality, it is a very SLIGHTLY lower-cost airline with a major downgrade in convenience and comfort. I will not be selecting Spirit again."
Pros: "Once we finally had a plane, it was fine, we boarded and took off for home and the flight was great."
Cons: "delay, delay, delay, delay...yes, 4 hours late. Not sure why, but this flight was delayed by 4 hours. I don't know if there was anything they could have done about it, but it was terrible being delayed so long."
Pros: "Nothing! Spirit airlines is the worst!"
Cons: "They canceled my flight without warning and did not notify me until I was checking in. They stated I should have received an email. Email didn't come until 0820 for a flight due to leave at 0835. No other flights availiable that day? It was 0630 when I was checking in! Unwilling to give partial refund to allow me to fly home with them and just purchase a one way ticket with another airline. Avoid at all cost. Their cheap tickets aren't worth the hassle! Will never book with them again!"
Pros: "They were on time and the return flight crew was friendly."
Cons: "The bag fees for me to check a bag and carry on a second bag was $100, so my inexpensive fare was $200 more. On the flight out the seats were very uncomfortable--plastic non adjusting seats. Thank goodness the flight was only four hours long. While I understand that drinks and snacks are "add ons" and a profit center, passengers have to buy expensive water and snacks with the gate vendors. Surely the airline could stock a few gallons of water for dehydrated passengers? The cost of my two bags would have covered bottled water for everyone on the flight."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and knowledgeable"
Cons: "Felt like after paying all the fees we could have just flown a regular airline"
Pros: "Staff were attentive. On-time"
Cons: "Seats have no padding for comfort. Everything was not upfront - i.e. charging $50 for bags (only had one bag for each of us two) Very difficult to scoot over to your seat, especially me with major back, knee and hip issues. Overall, very uncomfortable."
Pros: "Didn't have a problem on vegas to Fort Lauderdale flight, connecting flight canceled early AM which made my personal life obligations extremely difficult to meet. After that incident I won't fly with spirit no more, thank you."
Cons: "Didn't have a problem on vegas to Fort Lauderdale flight, connecting flight canceled early AM which made my personal life obligations extremely difficult to meet. After that incident I won't fly with spirit no more, thank you."
Pros: "I have severe back issues and wad unable to lift my carry on into the overhead bin. I asked one of the flight attendants for some assistance. And for lack of a better word or expression, she gave me what can only be described as "stank face." She rolled her eyes and actually let out an audible sigh before grabbing the bag from my hands and shoving it into the bin, then walked away without so much as a word. I attempted to thank her and got no response, she just turned and walked away. I can say with all honesty that i have never been treated so rudely on any other airline."
Pros: "Missed flight! Got delayed and they never called us and we were at the gate area. Spirit is terrible."
Pros: "Quick easy boarding ...comfortable seating"
Pros: "Flight attendants were not friendly AT ALL. Baggage fees were highway robbery. Charging for a carry on?! Charging an extra $55 for a bag 3 pounds over the 40 pound limit?! Absolutely ridiculous. Never. Again."
Pros: "Awful. Just awful."
Pros: "Nothing at all. All of the general staff was horrible and I dare say ghetto."
Cons: "The flights policies. The staff. When I got there I went to check in to a kiosk, it read arrow and directed me to the airline desk. There I was.charged $55 to carry on my bag. The plan was to check in and pay for my bag at the kiosk which would have been $21 instead of $55. For their troubles, I supposed. What a rip off. Then on my boarding pass they put 0 bags where I was then asked for $100 fee to check my carry on at the gate. Why would they put 0 bags?!?! Thank God I had my receipt with me and I dodged that extra expense. The staff was so rude. Worst flight experience of my life! They make TSA look great."
Cons: "Delayed twice, seats do not recline, no snacks included, they charge for carry ons. They are the worst airline. Period."
Pros: "Staff was great!!!"
Cons: "Would like a little more room in the seats.. don't really like eating my knees for lunch.. paying for a seat after already paid for your flight is ridiculous.. also, paying $50.00 for check bags and $55 for a carry on is outrageous.. oh and 1 more thing.. no free beverages.. Really.. Come on.. $3.00 for a Coke or water??? Really??? The flights are cheap, but they stick it to you with there added fees as mentioned above!!!"
Cons: "There was a scuffle on our flight. The stewardess had no clue how to properly handle the situation so we ended up leaving the airport very late. Spirit also nickel and dimes you anywhere they can! I should've flown with Delta! It would've been cheaper! Food and entertainment? There was none!! The chairs are also like metal fold up chairs they threw a thin layer of foam on and bolted to the floor. The stewardess has no clue how to use the lights and kept turning them on and off the entire time during a red eye flight when I was trying yo sleep. The pilot is an idiot and tried to coast into the landing on a windy rainy day resulting in the bumpiest landing I've EVER had. Poor, Spirit. Poor."
Cons: "Unfriendly staff, unfriendly airline with innumerous arbitrary rules. They nickel and dime the customer for the slightest service items. Exorbitant fair increase for changing flight schedule. I am pretty sure that I will never ever use this airline again."
Pros: "Easy check in"
Cons: "I didn't like that we were charged overrated prices for everything even water... thought I would be charged for air and toilet paper."
Pros: "The plane was relatively new and clean."
Cons: "Baggage retrieval takes 4x longer than any other airline despite Spirit's inflated rates. The lack of reclining seats in all areas of the plane is ridiculous and makes the flights unbearable. Lesson learned. I'll pay the extra $25 for JetBlue or Southwest. Never again!"
Cons: "Night flight that didn't offer blankets or pillows and it was freezing in sweater and jeans. Flight attendants and other passengers also reported it being extremely cold. Could not sleep on plane from midnight to 5am because I was shivering so much...."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours. No drinks offered on flight. Have to pay for carry on. Upon arrival, could not exit aircraft for half hour because gate was busy"
Cons: "Everything niot good that all"
Pros: "There were no delays or malfunctions. The flight was smooth and on time."
Cons: "The food/snack options. The amount and/or limited amount stocked."
Pros: "Spirit will charge $55 for a carry on and $50 per bag under 40#, more if heavier, so add those costs to their "cheap" fares. Seats are cramped and do not recline. No snack or comp drink of any kind."
Cons: "You get what you pay for and pay some more for hidden charges ."
Cons: "Seems like a cheap ticket until you factor in all the extra charges. Carry on bag $50, water and a snack $10. I'm surprised the bathroom was still free of charge. The captain couldn't get one of the engines started but taxied out to the runway anyway. When it still wouldn't start we turned around and went back to the gate to wait for a mechanic. They were able to get it started and we were able to fly."
Pros: "I had flight delay for 6 hrs, missed my business meeting Las Vegas ! Very rude people at Spirit counter, never will consider Spirit as my 1 suggestion! All this and I paid 1st class accommodation, I really think I should be compensated! 7194600011 thnx! Reg!"
Cons: "I did not have my credit card with me and flight attendants would not accept cash for food and drink. I started to feel faint during take off. I asked the flight attendant for a glass of water. She said I have to buy water. I said I do not have my credit card with me. She said they do not accept cash! I begged for water, even just a sip I pleaded. She said all I can give you is a bit of ice. I started to cry and hold my throat. She still did not give me an ounce of water!!!! It cost $55 to CARRY ON my bag!! I just could not believe it! Also, the flight was delayed for take off. I will NEVER fly Spirit Airlines again. NEVER EVER!!!"
Pros: "My flight to Las Vegas was delayed 7 hours with no compensation. Then the flight from Vegas to New Orleans was delayed 2 hrs at 2pm then site 2 hrs at 5pm until it was finally canceled at 10pm. After I spent 3.5 hrs standing in line I was re-booked a non direct flight the next day with another airline,and they put me up in a hotel for 2hours until my next day of flying to Denver, Houston, and then new Orleans. I was originally supposed to arrive in new Orleans via a direct flight Sunday night but ended up not reaching my final destination until Tuesday afternoon."
Cons: "They charged $55 for a carryon, in which I was not notified of until I got to y airport. My flight was delayed with no compensation. The steward woke me up at midnight to ask if I wanted to purchase a coke. My return flight was delayed all day then canceled. Services were less than professional and filled with hidden fees."
Cons: "Spirit is just an airline for short flights. The employees Are unprofessional. Compared to other airlines, the quality of service sucks. What's the point of paying for luggage and checking in ahead of time, if you still have to wait in the line ? I thought that was a joke coming back from home and I had to wait in line for almost 2 hours. There's not even mobile boarding. With the price of the ticket and just one checked bag round trip. I would have been better off with booking with Southwest. I vowed I would never ride with them again."
