On time. Following Covid-19 guidelines. Nice to get a cup of coffee on those early flights. Enjoyed the staff.
I liked the fact that they told us WHY the flight was delayed. I liked the fact that the staff was super nice and came through the cabin twice for drinks and twice to pick up trash. Much appreciated!
Cons: "Boarding is not very organized."
Pros: "The crew was great. I love the hot tea selection on Alaska."
Pros: "Good boarding process even when every seat was full."
Cons: "More legroom. Not asking for a ton, but at least another 2 inches. My knees were killing me by the time we landed, & it was only a 3 hr flight."
Cons: "Boarding can be little more faster"
Pros: "Air traffic control re-routed the flight which delayed our take off and extended our flight time. The captain was good about keeping us informed about the delay, and the new schedule. The delay wasn’t Alaska’s fault, and the crew made the best of a not ideal situation."
Pros: "Very helpful and sweet staff"
Pros: "Nothing. Missed the connection due to being on the tarmac/runway for over a hour and a half. Missed my connection"
Cons: "Everything from flight schedule to customer service could have been better. Alaska Airlines is horrible"
Pros: "Biscoff cookies are the best please never stop serving them!"
Cons: "We were almost treated as if we were stand by people instead of paid passengers. They didn't give us seats until the last minute because we used saver prices... Because i found a bargain price i get treated as lesser? Not cool."
Pros: "They could’ve told us we needed to download the app for free entertainment prior to leaving the ground, but other than that I was very please. Alaska Airlines is always great to fly."
Pros: "The flight was on time, turbilance very little and the captain gave good info. Flight crew friendly and very nice. This was a first time flight with them but not the last I will book more flights"
Pros: "Crew was very pleasant."
Cons: "Spent an hour attempting to get the "free" wifi to work on two different devices on my round trip flights. It is probably not the airline's fault, but with that being said, it was extremely inconvenient."
Pros: "Good leg room, thank you"
Cons: "I can't complain, it was a cheap flight, they got me there."
Pros: "Y'all are the best!"
Pros: "Attendants were negligent. Asked for water many times, but didn't get any response. They were busy chit chatting. Internet - only 20 mb , that too for 2 hours continuous. Food was not that good. And only 2 meals for 14 hr flight!!"
Cons: "Attendants were negligent. Asked for water many times, but didn't get any response. They were busy chit chatting. Internet - only 20 mb , that too for 2 hours continuous. Food was not that good. And only 2 meals for 14 hr flight!!"
Cons: "When we were birding they were meeting people board ahead of other based on whether they were wearing SF Giants wear or not. Choice in sports team should not effect the flight. It was discriminatory."
Pros: "Flight was easy boarding, took off on time, landed on time"
Cons: "Was nervous regarding the announcement they made before the flight. Everyone was to stay in their assigned seat due to the lack of people on the flight. They needed to balance off the plane. We were afraid to get up and walk around. Wasn't happy about being placed in the back of the plane because it was so LOUD."
Pros: "Friendly and helpful. Let my son sit in the pilots seat!!"
Pros: "Booth planes we flew with had horrible intercom systems. Could not understand the pilot. Might want to fix them. In case of an emergency."
Cons: "- There was a delay in boarding. - One of the crew wasn’t that professional when it came to reminding people to follow certain things. (We just simply did not hear the announcement!) And the reason probably was that we were the only teenagers (without adults) on that flight."
Pros: "Liked the free entertainment app"
Pros: "Very smooth flight. Crew was very humble and nice. Will most definitely fly Alaskan again!"
Cons: "Flight attendant could've been more nice. Only using half a coke can then throwing it away. I would've drank it all."
Pros: "Great service!"
Pros: "Outlets in the planes!!!"
Cons: "Delay on one flight"
Pros: "Great trip lots of leg room. Very lovely"
Cons: "No tv"
Cons: "Baggage delay inconvenience."
Pros: "The flight attendants were so kind and helpful, especially with those who had heavier carry ons"
Pros: "Although we were a little behind schedule to leave Seattle, the flight crew thoroughly explained the delay to us and got us on the way as soon as they could."
Pros: "Smooth fight and ahead of schedule"
Pros: "On time. Good crew."
Pros: "Flight crew was great."
Cons: "The flight was fine, however the customer service at the airport in Seattle was the worst experience I've ever had. I ended up missing my flight because of it. Everyone I dealt with, apart from the gentleman that changed my flight to the next one, was rude. I will likely try to avoid Alaska Airlines in the future for fear of having to deal with them in the airport."
Pros: "Direct flight."
Cons: "Do not like the biscuit cookies. They taste awful."
Pros: "I loved how fast I got my luggage at the baggage claim. I was very impressed."
Pros: "Amazing plane and crew for a short trip"
Pros: "Alaska boards from the back of the plane forward which makes boarding fast. We were all loaded and ready to go 15 minutes before departure time. Seats were roomy and each had a plug for charging phones/ipads, etc."
Pros: "We landed safely and I could get off the plane."
Cons: "The wait, the stench in the plane was horrific. The seats are tiny. Uncomfortably small. The attendants were rude and disrespectful with their condescending attitudes."
Pros: "Alaska Airlines is the best."
Cons: "It was a fine experience. There was nothing that i really didn't like."
Pros: "Leg room! Way better than delta!"
Pros: "Fairly smooth flight"
Cons: "One of the attendants seemed to be a little grumpy"
Cons: "The USB port on the seatback in front of me did not work."
Pros: "Enough leg room and on time. Check in personnel very helpful."
Pros: "The crew was great and the flight was smooth."
Cons: "NA. Alaska Air is definitely a great company"
Pros: "Boarded early, smooth flights, comfortable seats and friendly crew"
Cons: "Need to allow people to board according to what's been called and not let people board early that shouldn't. I think it's great that they board back to front but that's only good if the person at the gate ensures it. The food/snack options are not the greatest."
Pros: "Roomer seats didn't feel cramped or jamed in."
Cons: "The flight was wonderful but there was a little girl traveling by herself that was slightly misbehaving throughout the flight. Everyone around thought that was sibling or daughter of a passenger nearby until the last duration of the flight. She was very cute and it wasn't a big deal, but if there was a way for people around her to know I'm sure we would have helped her out a lot earlier in the flight with all her stuff."
Flight delayed out of MCO cost me my connecting flight to PDX. Held up in a hotel in Phoenix…
Cons: "Good flight"
Cons: "Business class for 4.5hrs overnight without flat seats!! Zero entertainment!"
Pros: "Everything was great."
Cons: "Nothing. It was smooth and efficient."
Pros: "Whole row to myself. Greqt movie, in early and informative pro of a captain."
Pros: "plane was very nice and roomy, crew were friendly and good service"
Pros: "Not much crew stayed in back almost the whole 6 1/2 hr flight and seemed not to friendly"
Cons: "It would have been better if they had departed when they said they were going to after a delay. Flight was delayed first 1 hr then two more hours. The airline finally posted that it would depart a 4 PM and we didn't even start boarding until 5PM. Then they tried to rush us on so that everyone was standing on the HOT jetway for 10 min waiting to get on the plane. Plane didn't take off til 5:35 PM. Over all on this trip I had three flights that were delayed. I'll think twice before taking American Air again."
Pros: "Comfy seats"
Cons: "The crew"
Pros: "Smallest seats of any airline I've recently traveled on"
Cons: "Flight was canceled"
Pros: "Awesome Customer Service"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly"
Cons: "Seats were extremely uncomfortable, and hurt my back very much."
Pros: "Great crew and seat"
Cons: "Flight left the gate late, then sat on the tarmac for 30 minutes causing me to miss my connection to Austin. Couldn't get another flight that night to Austin so flew to Dallas, got in at midnight, had a to get a room which was not reimbursed. So sick of American Airlines and will not use them aga"
Pros: "The greatest part of the trip for me was the smooth landing."
Cons: "I wanted a voucher ride but they only needed a few volunteers."
Pros: "The ground personal and flight crews did everything they could do make up for the delays."
Cons: "The numerous delays The small aircraft with overhead bins that couldn't handle what I always carry on normal airplanes. The plane didn't have entertainment Missing plug ins that most airplanes have today."
Pros: "The Flight crew was courteous and took care of us despite a series of extremely unfortunate circumstances."
Cons: "Due to a computer malfunction we were stuck on the tarmac for some time, when it was decided to find a new gate to return to. /The tech crew eventually gave the all clear and upon returning to the tarmac, the same computer malfunction occurred, and again we had to return to the gate. This was all totaled 2.5 hours on the Tarmac. Finally, some 5 hours late we departed Miami in a different plane. Upon arrival in Phoenix, the captain wearily announced that there was no ground crew awaiting us, so we had to wait some time on the tarmac there to disembark. Never before had I heard a airline captain encourage the passengers to write a letter of complaint to his employer."
Cons: "flight was delayed two hours because they couldn't find a single American airlines employee to sign off on some log book.sat on tarmac two hours because no one could sign a piece of paper!!! so obviously we missed our connecting international flight to dublin. called american customer svc, they made us call british airways, british airways said we had to call kayak, kayak said we had to call American. thanks for all the great customer svc. this is why everyone hates flying and all airlines are garbage. then finally in chicago american customer svc desk said they rebooked us on a British airways flight the same night, we traversed (ran) the entire chicago ohare airport only to find out british airways said we were not on that flight, were completely full and we had to go back to american. literally had to leave airport to get on train to go back to american terminal. they swear we are now (the next day) on this aer lingus flight despite our inability since last night to try and check in to that flight because aer lingus website doesnt work, no one answers their customer service number and their ticket counter at airport doesnt open until noon. suffice it to say we are still not on a flight to Dublin, ive missed an entire day of a limited vacation, and i will NEVER fly american again."
Pros: "Friendly staff and helpful"
Cons: "Did not fly out of Ontario, I was being led to fly out of LAX since there was a delay. Ended up flying out of John Wayne Airport."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and helpful. Boarding process was pretty quick."
Cons: "The plane had one of those aggravating screens on the back of every seat. I turned it off AT LEAST EIGHT TIMES and it kept coming back on, first to try to sell me on a credit card offer, then to show me previews of movies I wasn't going to watch on a 5 AM FLIGHT that was lasting 75 MINUTES. I finally tore a page out of the AA magazine and wedged it against the screen so I could actually sleep without it constantly blinking on and disturbing me. Next time, I'm going to smash the screen. If I want it off, leave it off."
Pros: "Boarding was quick, flight took off and landed close to the time it was supposed to."
Cons: "Seats could be more comfortable, first check d bag could be included instead."
Pros: "American did transfer us to another flight after several hours' delay."
Cons: "Lack of scheduled flight crew caused a 2 hour delay causing American to re-route us via Chicago in lieu of Phoenix. Still, arrived 2 hours later..."
Pros: "Dreamliner plane"
Cons: "Terrible service from get go which continued when landing in Melbourne with hopeless Qantas."
Pros: "On this flight back to Arizona they arrayed mutt husband and I together, unlike on our way to Spokane. That was much better. We had more leg room this time."
Cons: "The seats are hard, fine for young people, but difficult for older people with arthritis and Auto immune diseases, such as fibromyalgia."
Cons: "The information that was given was awful. Why would AA send a broken plane to ABW?"
Pros: "Nice people to fly with"
Pros: "The plane was newer, drinks are available. Seat only reclines half an inch or so so get ready for that."
Cons: "Crew on aa is the worst bunch of entitled fools, almost as horrendous as united."
Cons: "They did not compromise when I couldn't go, I understand no refund but I cancelled a few days after,"
Cons: "Not a fan of baggage fees especially this high for only one checked. Next time Southwest Air, I guess."
Cons: "Nothing was together, missed connection. Had to buy a hotel in Phoenix"
Pros: "Almost on time"
Cons: "Boarding process, PA system volume very low at PHX"
Cons: "delay, then no sandwiches available for purchase onboard during a 3-hr evening flight"
Pros: "Met expectations. Landed early."
Cons: "Seats harder than expected"
Pros: "The flight was very good. Boarding was good, shorter flight, smooth, landed and off we were."
Cons: "Seating still needs a little more padding for comfort. Delta airlines has a screen on every seat and you can see where you are and how far you have gone and so on. That would be nice. It was very difficult to hear what the pilot said when he spoke to say hello and whatever else he said. Entertainment? There wasn't any on this flight"
Pros: "Remodeled plane style"
Cons: "Liked it"
Pros: "Airline and crew looked after us and kept us informed. My app said the flight was delayed but the captain didn't seem to know this so we sat for half an hour or more after planned departure. Maybe he hoped to get an earlier slot. We were 30 mins late in the end."
Cons: "No food for purchase, just a drink and biscuit."
Cons: "There was no food offered. The stewardess was not happy to be at work."
Pros: "Friendliness of flight crew; entertainment choices."
Cons: "Food was poor for first class."
Pros: "Quiet. Overnight."
Cons: "no meal, no internet."
Pros: "Crew was fine even when we had to sit on the ground for 1 1/2 hours for a repair."
Cons: "American Airlines didn't honor my choice of seats."
Pros: "Flight was late arriving; then 45 minutes late leaving for PHX, creating concern about catching connection. However, once arrived in PHX, the connecting flight was in the same concourse, which was often not the case. So, could easily make the connecting flight. Also, the push by crew to "valet check" carry in luggage was too aggressive, especially since there was ample space to store luggage above the seats, then having to wait 10 minutes or more to retrieve luggage at entryway while being concerned about connecting flights was an example of a poor system for serving passengers when a flight is let."
Cons: "The wifi did not work and we were not offered any food, and the beverage choice was only water or coffee. Very old plane with broken seats."
Pros: "Boarding was fast."
Cons: "No internet on plane. Plane was older. Seats were not comfortable. Had to wait 40 minutes in hot plane for our gate to be available for our plane to pull into."
Pros: "Price and schedule."
Cons: "Do not like how this or any airlines board passengers."
Cons: "Flight landed late. Had to rush to get on med plane"
Cons: "You need to add a not applicable choice to your list. I did not eat the snacks offered on the flight nor was there any entertainment that I could find."
Pros: "I like that the times American Airlines offered to get to my destination."
Cons: "The planes are not so clean and very old... These days it makes me more willing to pay extra to fly on a newer plane."
Pros: "Crew was nice including those helping with boarding."
Cons: "Difficult to recline chair. Limited snack options. Landing was a bit rough."
Pros: "Although we had to sit on tarmac, we still made our transfer on time."
Cons: "Seats very uncomfortable."
The flight itself needed some work. Lights came one and off with no consistency. Leg space is nonexistent (I'm 6'7"). Crew was sluggish to do anything.
Cons: "Crew were not friendly at all; I was sitting in the very last row and could hear them complaining about various things. The passenger next to me asked multiple questions and was flat out ignored each time. The seats were very cramped, the flight delayed; a friendlier crew could have made up for that"
Pros: "I was able to sleep most of the flight."
Cons: "My neck hurt a lot."
Cons: "Stuck me with a middle seat even though I fly frequently On United. In fact they gave me a special recognition on an earlier flight which was ridiculous as well because it was just a piece of paper that I had to go up to the podium to collect"
Cons: "Immediately after all passengers were boarded United discovered the plane had to be replaced. We all had to deplane, wait an hour more for a new A320, and reboard. Also irritating that delays are posted at 15 minute intervals and then updated; so you have to keep updating friends & family via WiFi. If it's predicted to be an hour, say so."
Cons: "our flight was delayed in Chicago and our bags were not in Phoenix upon arrival"
Cons: "My email is not linked to my phone, so I got no warning notices of two gate changes waiting for my connecting flight home. I waited at the original gate (C39) from arrival time (2:30 pm) til boarding time (5:40 pm). When I saw no change to my destination, I checked the United App to find that the gate had been changed C33). Rushing to C33 I found another flight boarding at that location with one United Representative who could not stop to answer questions. Seeing two unoccupied Representatives at the next gate (C32), I asked if they could help me with the confusion, they said I should check with gate C33 - which I told them that she was too busy with other passengers. I searched for a Departure Board and discovered that gate C33 was still the gate, but "aircraft maintenance" had delayed the flight until after 8:20. After having to check my carry-on because of lack of space in the overheads, my departure from the airport was further delayed another 30 minutes. Upon returning home and checking my email, I found notifications of two different gate changes (C33 & C44). Announcements should have been made at both gate C39 about the changing of the gate and at C33 explaining the problem. The captain's lame excuse about air conditioning and Phoenix's hot weather was lame to say the least."
Cons: "Bad experience"
Pros: "From start to Finish from ticketing to baggage claim we received Premier Customer Service"
Cons: "I never flew to Phoenix from Washington. I was held over at DCA for the night so I lost a full day of my vacation! Had to fly to Chicago and then to Phoenix. Was a total pain!!!"
Pros: "I was happy to finally receive a drink one the flight started. A waterbottle at the seat and not other service would have been nice. Wifi was not working. The seats were small and cramped. My seat did not stay either up or down...it kept moving around and would not stay adjusted. However the crew was fantastic and our two female pilots were amazing. Captain Amy touched down in Phoenix was one of the smoothest I have ever experienced."
Pros: "The nice crew"
Cons: "I wish if there was delay, we could do it at the gate not on the tarmac."
Cons: "we paid for 2 seats together in economy plus, but due to an equipment change, we were split up. In order to sit together we were downgraded to economy. It would have been nice if they had informed us when the change occured so we could have made arrangements"
Cons: "This flight was horrible. I upgraded my seat and paid extra for a premium economy and it was still crowded. There was gum or candy stuck to the floor right were I was supposed to stash my carry on. I pointed it out to the flight attendant and his response was "so you can't put your bag there?" I asked him if he would ruin his bag and put it there and he said "well, you don't know me." What? I had to worry the whole flight about putting my foot on that gooey mess. What did I get for my extra money? Aggravation."
Cons: "There was no entertainment available on this flight. It's a short flight so I don't expect any, however, I continued on to Phoenix that day from Chicago and that is a long flight. I expected free entertainment on that flight, as it was afforded on the flight on the Phoenix to Chicago leg of my flights earlier in the week. The Chicago to Phoenix had entertainment offered but it there was a fee, which I didn't appreciate and did not take part in. I looked around me as much as possible and didn't see anyone else pay for entertainment. Having in flight movies and TV available for feee is a great incentive for flying with United. If these long flights in the future are pay for view, I will not be flying with you when there are alternative carriers who do provide free entertainment. Thank you."
Pros: "Fantastic service! Much obliged for everything!"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and courteous."
Cons: "First the plane arrived late so we could not board at our scheduled time. Then when the plane arrived they said we could not used that plane. Then we had to wait 3 hours before we could get another plane. The new plane was also on the other end of the airport. This was a challenge while traveling with my mother who requires assistance."
Cons: "Need to pay for everything... internet, tv, and snack. Long flight when you cant fork out more money for what was free with canadian airline"
Pros: "The food choices were good and the service was excellent, Always kind and responsive to my needs and attentive."
Cons: "Boarding could be done by letting people with window seats being seated first, then the middle seats next and finally aisle seats last! That way people would not have to get up from their seats after they have been sitting down to get back up to allow the people in the inner seat to get to their seats a pond boarding the plane after the people in the aisle seat are already sitting!"
Cons: "Reduced leg room because of seat construction"
Pros: "The staff was very nice."
Cons: "I purchased two tickets and we weren't given seats next to each other."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Boarding takes too long"
Pros: "Good service good snacks."
Pros: "smooth ride in the air"
Cons: "-arrived in Phoenix 2 hours late -plane sat on the runway for an hour and a half before taking off. -my small carry suitcase had to be checked -bags took 45 min once we got to Phoenix"
Cons: "Seating drinks/food pricing baggage handling"
Pros: "The crew was very helpful and polite"
Cons: "Anything but water was for extra. We weren't even offered a small snack for the price of the flight. My flight was changed three times and it was very cramped. They said there would be entertainment, but it cost as much as a movie ticket. They also managed to lose my bags for the third time in a row."
Pros: "The Flight attendants were nice."
Cons: "The airport was horrible. Hard to get to the C concourse. "train" is TOO SMALL. It barely fits 10 in each car. International transfer of bags was Horrible, and very far apart from where you get the bags. Poorly planned or not at all planned. We barely had time to make the flight with 1 1/2 hours to transfer and would have missed our flight if it wasn't for a trolley driver who took us from security to the gate. There is no power at the seats. The plane is old and seats were very uncomfortable. Yeah, this was the worst flight."
Pros: "Zero leg room! That actually was surprising as most other airlines have a lot more legroom. In flight entertainment was also lacking. Doesn't make sense to pay $7.99 for a 2.5hr flight. A lot of other airlines offer some sort of complimentary in flight entertainment. Also the luggage didn't start coming out for at least 30 mins of waiting at baggage claim. Not the worst experience I've had flying but far from being a good experience. It probably isn't worth flying united unless it's 1st class. But even they had to wait 30+mins for luggage!"
Pros: "Nice new large plane, boarding was quick and the flight was fast"
Cons: "Flight was delayed two hours, lack of communication regarding delays even after airplane arrived, seats were uncomfortable and lacked room."
Cons: "The only thing I didn't like was that my flight was delayed. But hey, it happens. Over all it was great"
Pros: "I felt comfortable. Staff was great."
Cons: "The cracker and cheese box. The snack wasn't worth the money."
Pros: "Boarding started early and went very quickly. Seats were new and a leather type material , which is an improvement from old fabric seats. Nice headrests you could bend to support your head. Loved the new United app I downloaded for free which allowed me to watch movies and tv shows on my phone. We arrived at our destination 30 minutes early, which was a plus. Staff was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "They overbooked my flight and almost didn't let me on the plane even though I bought my ticket months ago! The only reason I got on is because some people didn't show up."
Cons: "So many problems with my fly. Bad service. Never fly with united air lines. No recommended to any body"
Pros: "Seemed to be a newer plane, and there was in-seat entertainment at each seat. Mine didn't work, though."
Cons: "United has to have the smallest seats of any carrier. There couldn't have been more than three inches between my seat and the seat in front of me. The guy in the middle seat wasn't a large guy, yet he poured over into my space. It's insanely small."
Cons: "I was angry that I had to fly to Houston before heading to Phoenix which made my arrival in AZ much later than I had planned. My flight had been rescheduled since I missed my flight the night before because the first flight had been delayed. So the new flight was a longer trip because of the extra layover. The overall flight was a mess."
Pros: "Price was great and flight crew was nice."
Cons: "Rows 20 to the back of the plane didn't get a beverage. Slow moving attendant. I was thirsty."
Pros: "The only thing I have to say that is positive is that it was relatively easy to change my flight date and time in the United app once my original flight had been cancelled. The app was the only thing that helped me understand what was going on during the constant time and gait changes throughout the day."
Cons: "This airline is terrible. First we were told that the flight would be delayed 1 hour and 40 minutes. We were supposed to leave at 2139 from IAH to PHX. They changed the departure to 2309 due to "mechanical failure" of one of the aircrafts. We were told a plane was coming and that we were just waiting for another flight to Albuquerque that was delayed before us to leave the gait. Long after that first delayed flight left passengers for PHX were delayed 3 more times which ended in the final tenative departure time being 0145. We were told at 0115 to sit tight and wait because the plane was now here but the crew was still in route. Shortly after this promise, the crew showed up and everything seemed to be ready for us to board. Another 30 minutes went by and they announced that the flight was cancelled. United airlines had used up over 4 hours of changing gaits and times only to end up cancelling the entire flight. They did not offer any explanation for this nor were they the least sympathetic to the travelers who have all paid to be on that flight. The customer service was disgraceful and did not offer any type of help on reimbursement, hotel, cabs, or compensation for this."
Pros: "I love United. They're now my go to airline. I love the pet friendliness as well as every employee through United I met today from the bdl check in crew , to especially the flight crew on flight558 iAd to phx who I believe was from Houston and their Texas roots truly shined. Every crew member was Sooo attentive professional Cleanly pleasant and always smiling and happy to come around. Other crews could learn from this crew please take notice !!! I have never been so impressed (and I am a frequent flyer )"
Cons: "Flight tracker wouldn't work on screen or on phone disappointing"
Pros: "The flight was smooth and the crew was polite"
Cons: "I had a center seat. Person in the aisle a large male. I didn't like the boarding It didn't make sense"
Cons: "Food selection awful"
Pros: "I had an empty seat next to me and was able to have some more comfort on the 5 hour flight"
Cons: "The flight was delayed twice, very frustrating as we were already arriving at midnight."
Pros: "Was impressed w the new plane"
Cons: "Overhead storage a little small"
Cons: "Getting off the plane ( We were stuck on the plane for at least 1 hour and twenty min. )"
Pros: "Clean plane, great customer service."
Cons: "You have to pay for a reclining seat, only the first theee rows have them. You have to pay for even soda drinks. Ok for shorter commutes, but a 4+ hour flight is miserable."
Pros: "That I made it there in one piece."
Cons: "Not worth saving a couple dollars. Front tier airlines does not allow you to pick your seats before hand nor does it allow you to select baggage and the app, it is recessed for whatever reason. The seats are extremely tiny the tree table is so small you can barely fit an English muffin on it. There is no entertainment whatsoever, there is no Internet on the plane, and if you want anything to eat or drink besides water you will be paying for it. I’m sorry to say but flying on frontier was more like a punishment for me. I always fly American and wanted to save a few dollars what a mistake! With American most the planes that I have flown in have free movie entertainment and everybody seat the seats are comfortable And recline. And the snacks are free along with the soda. Please think twice before flying frontier."
Pros: "The flight was on time, the airplane was new and clean, and the seats were comfortable. We enjoyed the crew and our bag was waiting for us when we got to baggage claim. What more could one ask for on a no frills flight?"
Cons: "Everything exceeded expectations for a low fare no frills carrier."
Pros: "Do people write here for frontier?"
Cons: "Sat on the tarmac for over 3 hours. A fight broke loose and we had to return to the terminal and then back to the tarmac for more sitting. The crew finally figured out how uncomfortable and frustrated people were getting 2.5 hours to sitting with no air on the tarmac. They relieved their customers suffering then with complimentary water! Now that’s service. Frontier is one of the most base airlines out there. I’m entirely frustrated that they are one of the only airlines that service our podunk airport."
Pros: "The plane safely landed."
Cons: "Customer service, overall lack of competence and an inability to communicate laterally with other airlines who were using their gates. Seats are also incredibly uncomfortable."
Cons: "They had to fly in 2 plains to try and get us out. They didn’t offer meal vouchers until 51/3 hours into the delay."
Pros: "I called Customer Service as I needed to request a wheelchair to and from gate. The Customer Service Agent was pleasant and accommodating. I while I do not like paying for my luggage to accompany on the flight, I might try you again."
Pros: "Crew Is okay."
Cons: "As expected, anything extra (carry-on, water, food, etc) will be charged extra. Seats are small and do not recline"
Cons: "My seat was not worth an extra $50. Sat next to a lady with a stinky dog in her lap that was probably a little too big for lap."
Pros: "The Frontier staff was very welcoming in boarding passengers on this flight & that the view of the flight was awesome coming into Phoenix."
Pros: "FRUSTRATED AT INABILITY TO GET BOARDING PASS PRIOR HUNG ONTO PHONE 24 MIN 22SECONDS BEFORE HANONG UP. ANOTHER PASSENGER SAID IT TOOK HER 40 MIN ON YHE PHONE. THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE!"
Pros: "Before our trip, I read some mixed reviews, but honestly the experience was what I expected. The crew was really friendly and attentive, our flight took off and landed on time, so that was great."
Cons: "The seats were only so comfortable, and don't recline, no in-flight wi-fi, and everything needed to be purchased as extra. This was what I was expecting though, so I came prepared with my kindle and snacks purchased from the airport."
Pros: "Boarding was swift"
Cons: "I checked to see how much it cost to pay for my 2 checked bags online, it was 25.00 each. This was on a Sunday. Come Monday I went to pay for my two bags online but now it cost 35.00 per bag, WOW!!!"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "This used to be our favorite airline about 6-7 years ago. Now it's just a last minute ticket availability decision for only very short trips!! So uncomfortable, rude attendants and so many fees!!!"
Pros: "The baggage claim girl in Atlanta was Wonderful she was very pleasant to me and my boyfriend and expressed a genuine concern about my unfortunate circumstance. Mariah (Frontire baggage claim girl) did everything she could to make sure I got my Bag back and called as soon as it arrived Thanks Mariah !!!!"
Cons: "They lost my bags I was flying to Atlanta from Phoenix and my bag ended up in St Louis ... i would assume that if your going to make me pay for my checked bag it would atleast make it to the correct destination. The crew wasn't as pleasant and friendly as I'd like them to be but did there jobs (I guess) then we had to sit and wait for a gate .... the only reason why a gate finally opened up was because people started asking for snacks. Overall there was nothing special about this flight I was upset that I didn't have my luggage from the beggening of my trip but the day before I left my bag was recovered . The ticket was inexpensive but I'm not sure if it was worth the hasstle Then I had to pay for my bags coming back as well. Suggestion maybe have a 50% voucher ad a courtesy from sending a bag to the wrong destination."
Cons: "They say low fares done right but my "cheap" flight turned out to cost me over double what it should have with their extra cost for everything! And I mean for EVERYTHING. Will never fly frontier again!"
Pros: "If you have ever flown Ryan air ,this appears to be the American version."
Pros: "I liked the bundle package of a carry on, a checked bag and stretch seating. A fair price for the extras and the stretch seating is definitely a must!"
Cons: "I wasn't really impressed by the general lack of kindness from the flight attendants. Seemed like they hated their jobs and didn't want to be doing it. Didn't really want to ask for anything because I felt like I was inconveniencing them."
Cons: "Arriving to the airport at 5am and reviewing my experience at 11am, still waiting to board the flight that has been delayed over and over."
Pros: "Likely the most uncomfortable plane I've ever been on. Seats feature zero padding, the inability to recline, and a tray table the size of a DVD case. I'm 5' 9" 148 pounds, young and very healthy. I left the plane with a twisted up neck like I've never had before. I landed safely so I MUST be thankful for that, but if I was booking I would want to know this information. Since I'm the wiser now I will not book with Frontier again. Also it was an extra $90 for my CARRY ON round trip. It notified me it would be extra when I booked online but didn't specify how much. What a surprise. I spent more on the fees for the bag than I spent on the bag itself (and most of the contents for that matter)."
Pros: "friendly crew members"
Cons: "I was given a boarding pass that had the wrong boarding gate.I was boarding the flight from sky harbor Phoenix to AtlantaI. I almost missed my flight and nobody told the passengers the gates had been changed. I did not like that and felt disrespected. Yet I had paid for the flight."
Pros: "Paid for more room. It was enough. Glad I paid for it. The price kept going up as I was shopping seats (over the course of 20 minutes) the first time this was after the site crashed. Lame."
Cons: "Seat assignment pricing slowly tickin up as I check in seemed predatory. Baggage policy confused most people and made boarding slow. Rude worker. Everything costs $$$. Not worth the headache for the few bucks saved (I saved $20 at the end of day to not take Delta.)"
Pros: "Nothing Good To Say At all"
Cons: "My flight was cancelled twice and then once i was able to get a flight to phoenix from Cleveland it was for 3 days after my original date of departure and then they expect me to pay for a different airline if i wanted to leave on my scheduled date i think this airline is so unorganized it makes no sense and ill never fly with them again"
Pros: "Short flight. - But loved the price - very cost effective."
Cons: "My stay was short so I didn't need to check a carry-on or bag. Had I needed that service I would NOT have chosen Frontier - I seriously object to having to pay extra for an item that is not an "extra" - who travels without some type of luggage?? Just charge the cost up front and be transparent - it is difficult to determine exactly what your flight is going to cost you - which is exactly why I don't normally fly Frontier!"
Cons: "Will not use frontier again, I had no idea they didn't cover even a carry on. Also, couldn't lay my head down on the tray in front of me on the plane, it was way too short and way too low."
Cons: "A completely unprofessional,disorganized and disappointing experience. I will be sure to steer everyone away from this airline in the future"
Pros: "Boarding seemed smoother than American. Seats are pretty comfortable."
Cons: "Extra charges for carry on is not great, but it does make you think about what you pack!"
Cons: "Had to pay for drinks and couldn't recline the seat even a little. Also, microscopic tray tables. Having to pay to choose your seat and get a lemonade on a flight is not my idea of comfort or convenience."
Pros: "The seats were surprisingly comfertable! And I really enjoyed having more personal space in front of me! No other airline have seating like Frontier! I flew United in to Colorado and it really felt like sardines with Frontier I didn't and both flights where full!"
Cons: "I didn't like the surprise 40$ fee to bring carry on. I don't remember seeing that when I bought my ticket. I don't mind paying for my luggage. But would've been nice to be able to add that to my flight bill rather then having to pay the fee in order to get my flight ticket."
Pros: "Flight attendants being apologetic"
Cons: "Boarding agent was very rude and told me I could not board because of dog. Even the other passengers were appalled by his behavior and complained. on board flight attendants had to apologize for his behavior as well. He made me cry and wouldn't let me board. It was the worst flight experience I've ever had."
Cons: "Tried to cancel this flight using the flight insurance I was up sold during checkout. Turns out that the flight insurance was only available for international flights? When I ask the agent why it was the recommended during purchase, she said I should have read the full terms and conditions during checkout. To me, this was a true scam. She told me that I could appeal the conditions of the travel insurance, but I would have to present a death certificate of the friend's baby that had just passed - the reason the baby shower was cancelled, and the reason this trip was cancelled. It was appalling. I tried calling Frontier directly, but their reservation desk was closed due to their system being down. HOURS I tried to call, and could not get a rep. I ended up not able to cancel the flight or even speak w a Frontier rep before my flight departed. In all, I was given 6 different numbers or lines to call to sort through this situation. All I did was waste hours of my time. This was a terrible situation where I feel like I was the victim of a scam."
Pros: "I made it to my destination."
Cons: "Fees to have a seat on a plane you already purchased a ticket for. Carry on fees are ridiculous! I will never fly Frontier again nor will I recommend it to anyone... Ever!"
Pros: "I didn't like anything about traveling with Frontier."
Cons: "Upcharge for Seats, Upcharge for Checked Bags, Upcharge for Carry Ons, Upcharge for Water. They charge you for water. That seems illegal. The flight was delayed, the gate was changed. We had to change gates which means we had to go through security twice. The staff blamed everyone and everything else (even the passengers) for all the issues and took ZERO responsibility for anything. I can't believe they are still in business with this level of customer service. The flight attendants were ghetto too. Making light of a bad situation by saying the worst things possible. Total embarasment transfer. I'll never fly Frontier again and will think twice about booking travel with Kayak."
Pros: "Co-pilot who had to explain to passengers why so many flaws occurred in this flight, she tried to be humorous."
Cons: "Flight 1884 out of SFO was doomed from the beginning starting with a notice (thanks Kayak) via email that the flight would be 1 hour late. Then, the Departure board at the airport totally dropped the flight, Then (again thru Kayak) I read that the flight would NOT board in terminal 1, Gate 21, Domestic terminal, but ar gate A3 in the International terminal. We all had to exit domestic and go to international and again through TSA. Then the flight departed another 30 minutes late finally over 2 hours LATE! Upon arrival at Phoenix the plane taxied too far away from the exit ramp-another 40 minutes before we could depart. It was an awful flight experience. Did they offer a free soda or anything for inconvenience we experienced-NOT A THING!"
Pros: "At least this flight was only 15 min late!!"
Cons: "Told to arrive early only to show up and realize he bag check counter is unattended. A sign states it will open 2 hours prior to boarding. Staff shows up late then has to log on to computers and get ready. Once we check bags, lines are so long at security we are diverted to different gates. Worst airline I have ever used."
Pros: "My flight eas very friendly/ peaceful also a great experience for over 3 hrs"
Pros: "The flights went fine, and were mostly on-time, just a little delay leaving Chicago because the incoming flight had to wait for a gate to open up"
Cons: "Frontier's customer service line is horrible, with no clear option to reach a person to ask questions of without hunting through every option. Also, they charged me to pick a seat, ANY seat, so what the hell am I paying for when I pay for a flight?! I also had to put my backpack under my seat, even though it was stated numerous times on their website that it would be too big, and I had to pay $40 to make it a carry-on, when there was no room in the overhead bins. Their customer service line AND website stated I could be charged up to DOUBLE that ($80) if I had to pay for it at the gate. I looked it up, and I would have payed less on at least two other carriers because of the extra charges. This is information that should CLEARLY be stated when listing the costs of a flight, not "covered" under "additional costs may apply" or some such legalese"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing. The worse airline out there. Bunch of crooks. Kept 150 more people in the dark while we were delayed for almost 7 hours! Did not offer any information, did not solve any issues, did not even offer a damn bottle of water! GOD AWFUL customer service. Never again will Frontier get my business. Neither us or anyone else that I know."
Cons: "Everything about it was horrible. I will make sure our Awful experience will be heard every where in the media. It's a shame that Kayak supports such a low rate airline. Next time around I will check other sites before finalizing my ticket with Kayak."
Cons: "I bought a plane ticket and then had to pay for a seat on top of that, as well as exorbitant charges for bags, and we ended up paying far more than even the plane ticket for all the extra charges. If I buy a plane ticket, that price is what I am expecting to pay. I understand a few charges here and there, but more than double what I expected to pay is completely crooked and terrible business. The plane ride was bare bones, uncomfortable seats, and average service. We will never be flying Frontier again."
Pros: "The flight was cheap and affordable"
Cons: "paying for carryon luggage and the price being 45. paying for snacks and drinks thats over priced and should be free like the other airlines. seats no longer recline and you have to pay for a seat if you pick one. by the time you pay for all of it the flight costs more or about the same as thr airlines."
Pros: "I'm handicapped and the service I was given was excellent. From the moment I walked in the door at DIA I was given superb service. It made the trip so easy and pleasant. The flight attendants were also helpful when I needed a little water to some medication."
Cons: "Charging for carry on baggage is ridiculous. I was warned ahead of time so I carried a oversized purse that would accommodate a book and my ipas mini. But charging for non alcoholic beverages is highway robbery! And the food offerings were nothing but junk food. No wonder you are rated last in the airline industry for customer service."
Pros: "Not much. Will not fly this airline again."
Cons: "Extra charges for everything. Even water and coffee weren't free. Seat charge, what is that ? Overheard a fellow passenger say he felt as though we were treated like cattle."
Pros: "Flight was short"
Cons: "I was not informed that I would be forced to pay for a carry-on, which was more expensive than checking my bag. I checked it, which then forced me to have an additional 30 minute wait at baggage claim. Horrible experience especially due to the splitting headache from the child who was screaming louder than I ever thought humanly possible (that obviously wasn't the airline's fault though)."
Pros: "Flight was on time, boarding was quick."
Cons: "They charged to pick seating, for carry-ons, and for beverages on the flight. The money I "saved" compared to other airlines, I ended up probably spending more due to the additional charges."
Pros: "This is a good option if the price differential va other airlines is significant enough. However you must consider all the add on costs in that value calculation. Charges to reserve seat and check in on line, charge for carry on, charge for all drinks etc"
Cons: "Seating is beyond uncomfortable."
Cons: "The person at the gate informed me that I would have to pay for my bag. The same bag I had just brought from Portland on the same plane. She was rude ."
Cons: "Plane cancelled, no help from frontier customer service, will never fly on this airline again"
Pros: "Boarding was quick and easy"
Cons: "everything is an up charge, from carry-on bags to soda and snacks. if you want any and I mean any extra legroom expect to pay 17-25 dollars extra as well."
Pros: "polite and friendly crew"
Cons: "Extra costs for seats, soda/drinks (not water) and carry on luggage on one flight from SFO to PHX I ordered a water, but it never came Same flight SFO to PHX was delayed 2 hours for unknown reason Seats were firm and trays were tiny"
Pros: "Nice crew. Smooth process overall."
Cons: "Seats were tolerable for a short flight but not for much longer."
Cons: "I was on the phone for more than one hour I can’t fly cuz I got an accident so I can drive more sooooo I was trying to cancel my fly and never pick up the phone"
Pros: "The shining spot of this flight was the witty flight attendant who cracked jokes during the preflight safety announcements. It got the whole cabin laughing."
Cons: "To start the flight was overbooked and they needed several volunteers to stay behind for an alternate flight and there were many passengers upset with this. After we finally boarded we were already 30 minutes late, then sat at the gate another 20 minutes before being pushed back. We then sat in line almost 1 1/2 hours for our turn for deicing and it looked like several other flights got to jump in front of us. After that was done there was a malfunction with some navigation equipment and we had to restart the plane. This did not solve the problem so we had to go back to the gate for a technician to come look at it. We sat there another hour until the problem was resolved. We then had to go through deicing again and finally got to take off over 3 hours late. We should have already landed in our destination by the time we finally took off. At least the captain decided to let us all have complimentary snacks and drinks (which normally don’t come with the flight) because of the long delay. While the flight was less expensive than others, the expensive checked bag fees ($52 each) almost negates the savings compared to other airlines. I’m not sure I will fly this airline again."
Pros: "Great for anyone simply looking to get from point A to point B - no fuss!"
Pros: "The staff was Okay."
Cons: "The flight was delayed until the next day. The staff and airline seemed to be very disorganized and unable to handle all situations"
Cons: "Canceled my flight to Dallas DAY of the trip just a few hours before. Big weekend (brothers graduation & wedding plus moms bday and Mother's Day) had to buy a new ticket through American... they were super nice but spirit was terrible. Riot/strike or whatever. So wrong."
Cons: "a $57 fee for a carry on is a bit ridiculous. If I had know this, I would have flown on a different airline for a little bit more cost."
Pros: "The crew was excellent!"
Cons: "The flight was real bumpy."
Pros: "It was not bad but it could have been a lot better"
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "They started to load us than unloaded us because they had to change a tire. The seats are to tight and to close. Only 1 of the 3 attendance was polite."
Cons: "The flight attendants were nice, but Spirit makes it a pain in the neck to get your tickets. You first of all are REQUIRED to create an account with them so they can send you advertisements that you don't want cluttering up your mailbox. Second of all you have to pay an extra $10-20 if you want a seat. Furthermore, you have to pay extra for a carry-on. That's ridiculous! The flight was also delayed two hours, so I had to sit around the airport for 4 hours! When you finally board, the leg room is pathetic. I barely had room to fit my legs in with one small handbag! They also make you pay for in-flight refreshments. This is one of the worst flying experiences I have ever had. I am never flying Spirit again!"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "They advertise cheap fares and then charge exorbitant amounts of money for everything else. And they're elusive about it. If I hadn't read some blogs before my flight, I would have gotten ripped off even more. It's a total scam."
Pros: "The plane was clean and in good condition. The crew was professional. The flight was on time and ahead of schedule."
Cons: "This was my first flight with Spirit and I will avoid flying again with Spirit. Too many surprises with the extra expenses such as the seating charge, the baggage fees (especially the 40 pound limit on check in baggage which was new to me), the extra fees for not completing tasks online. It is just a nuisance to try to keep up with the next fee that will be sprung on the passenger. No more!"
Pros: "I like the base cost and then having the choice to add charges to my ticket designed for my needs."
Cons: "Would like to pick my seat and pay for it ahead of flight."
Cons: "Flight was delayed over an hour again!!"
Pros: "i have flown spirit multiple times out of phoenix in all kinds of weather and not once has it ever taken off on time! once the airline attendant even yelled at the passengers upon arrival at the gate like we were all children. I decided to check the status today instead of waiting in the airport for four hours and yes--- again it was delayed one hour and then two hours. so I planed accordingly and planned to be at the airport 1.5 hours ahead of the revised flight time. then they changed the flight time again and now I've missed my flight. this airline is absolutely the worst and I have flown domestically and internationally for over 35 years. I'm done with you spirit!"
Pros: "The flight was great"
Cons: "The fees"
Pros: "Flight on time."
Cons: "Too many add on costs after initial fee. Checked in at airport early. Went to gate and sat for 2 hours and realized the gate on my ticket had changed. No announcements at the gate as to changing gates. I had an email when I got home, that didn't do me any good. I don't have a Smart phone so can't get the email til I get home. Airline cannot assume that everyone has a smart phone. I might have missed my flight if I hadn't been paying attention. After I asked at the counter at the gate about the flight, then they made an announcement as to the moving of the gate. NOt helpful..."
Pros: "Y'all are stealing money."
Cons: "Why do I have to pay for a carry on and on top of that it's more expensive than the other bag"
Cons: "Classic bait and switch scam. This company should be shut down by the US attorney general"
Pros: "the service"
Cons: "the only problem i had was the delay."
Cons: "Complete incompetence"
Pros: "Safety and crew"
Cons: "Lack of comforts and complimentary food"
Pros: "Convenience and cost."
Cons: "I had no adverse issues on this flight."
Pros: "Stewardess' humorous save on our way back: "About that bumpy landing, it was not the pilot's fault. It was not even my fault. It was the asphalt!""
Cons: "Spirit is not competing on an even playing field for lowest cost fares on Kayak. You should not allow them to use your site. It merely appears to be low. My flight which started at $73 landed up being 157. Further more, flight was late taking off, on the return there was only one lavatory in flight because the other "was not working", bumpy ride and very bumpy landing, using in flight sales and incentives to sell a credit card with collaboration with Bank of America. There is such a complete absence of transparency that I don't hesitate to say, they are cheating Kayak customers and you should not allow them to advertise since it is not fair competition. Help us compare apples with apples."
Pros: "Nothing never using this airline again"
Cons: "The overcharges , the delayed ."
Pros: "Flight was on time and crew was friendly."
Cons: "It's how Spirit keeps their airfares so low, but a complimentary beverage and snack would be nice."
Pros: "Flight was cancelled, the airline gave no reasons, and did nothing to accomodate us on another flight. I had to find a way to Phoenix and purchased a brand new ticket with Southwesr."
Cons: "Customer service very deficient"
Cons: "I WILL NEVER TRAVEL WITH, NOR PURCHASE A TICKET FROM SPIRIT AIRLINES!!"
Cons: "Seats small, extra fees for baggage, no free food, just over priced, flight delayed hours without explanation"
Pros: "Great seats!!! Very comfortable! Best economy seats I've been in in terms of comfort and space. Initial check in people were helpful and efficient."
Cons: "$100 to check my bag each way (it was just over the weigh limit of 50 or else it would have been $75. My bag was heavy so I get charging extra-prices just seemed a little high. Once we got to gate, the whole vibe and staff changed. Everyone just seemed stressed and grumpy and rushed. We didn't get one smile from any staff member. The positive is that when we got to gate, another flight was arriving and i figured it would take awhile but they had us back on quickly. Downside, I went to get a book and charge my phone and I heard "last call for Phoenix, doors closing" so my daughter and I grabbed our stuff and ran. When we got there, the door was open and they were letting last passenger in. We ran to door and he said "the door is closed, you can't get on. Next flight is tomorrow. I missed it." I answered, "I'm looking at the door and there is someone standing there and going in. It isn't closed." And we argued for a minute or two while someone was holding the door open that I was told was closed. I apologized for missing announcement and said "it was a very quick turnaround. I had no idea you were that fast and it is my fault...but the door is clearly not closed as I am looking at it." The gentlemen standing there holding the door open with the other passenger then closed the door and went In. He did shortly after that let us on but there wasn't one smile anywhere from gate through people we encountered on walkway to the 3 flight attendants we saw as we boarded. We ended up sitting on the ground for 45 minutes before taking off and then I never saw a flight attendant again until we got off flight. They weren't walking aisles. We didn't get a beverage for our two hour flight. They did at one point in the intercom brag about the fastest turnaround time and least in ground time of any airline. I think that goal, though, is being reached at the expense of the customer experience. And what difference does it make if we had plane back out to runway in 15 minutes if everyone was mad and stressed and then we sat for 45 minutes (maybe I'm exaggerating because I'm mad but it was at least 30). I'd prefer an extra 5 to 15 minutes if everyone seemed to be enjoying their jobs and were more concerned about the full experience and not just the record turnaround times!! I like the idea but the implementation seemed too tress ful to make it worth it."
Pros: "Hassle free, smooth trip."
Cons: "A bit uncomfortable and packed/tight."
Cons: "First, the gate swited twice. Flight was delayed 30 minutes. Plus, I paid to sit in the 4th row, but the 3rd row was empty. So, the flight attendant let people who didn't pay extra for those seats, move all the up from the back of plane. Seriously? Why did I have to pay then? Should I then be entitled to a refund since other people sat there for free?"
Pros: "Everything was on time."
Cons: "Being nickle dimed for all services."
Pros: "The flight was wonderful. My seat was comfortable. Flt crew was very good."
Cons: "They charged $110 for golf clubs and a small suitcase. My flight was going to be on time but the decided to give that plane to the people heading to Vegas because they had been delayed all morning. Spirit told us we would be delayed four hours, then 30 minutes later they said the flight was completely cancelled. I had to go back to the main terminal to pick up my bags and had to go to the Spirit Airlines ticket counter to rebook and get a refund. The line was so long and slow it would have taken hours to talk to someone from Spirit. I called Customer Service and was on hold for 50 minutes before I could finally get refunded. This made me miss the last Spring Training game in AZ! I've been flying for 35 years and this was the worst flying experience in my life!"
Pros: "Nothing. Flight was cancelled. That was just the beginning of a travel nightmare. I can't believe Kayak compromises their reputation by representing a shoddy, sham of a business like Spirit."
Cons: "Cancelled flight at the very last minute because of lack of crew. Not enough staff to accommodate travellers trying to rebook flights. Inept and apathetic staff who were obviously resigned to the fact that Spirit is a substandard airline There was miscommunication and lack of communication in organizing travelers which caused multiple altercations between upset travelers. It was a very disturbing experience. My rebooking took an hour because the staff member didn't know how to rebook! The 'Supervisor' who was at the next desk, was SLOWLY checking bags for other customers and did not help AT ALL. I suggested that he switch places with my agent. He ignored me competely. Attempts to call Spirit resulted in multiple auto transfers and ultimately an intentional auto cut off. I was rebooked on United. When I checked in at their desk, they told me that all the other transferred Spirit customers before me had been sent back to the Spirit Desk because their transfers had not gone through. I have been warned about Spirit. Now I would warn anyone considering Spirit. If it goes right, you're ok. If not, get ready for a travel nightmare. No one needs this kind of abuse."
Cons: "I don't fly Spirit that much but what I saw looked good, on time at both stops and I especially liked getting on board early as opposed to waiting until 15 minutes before the plane takes off. What I didn't care for, but what I now understand is all the extra specific charges they continue to bombard you with are really charges you don't need. Bottom line for me is that I think I spent more money because I purchased other things and the final price that I paid was MORE then my the conventional favored airline! I will fly Spirit in the future."
Pros: "2 of the flight attendants had a good sense of humor."
Cons: "Flying from Denver to Phoenix, our flight was delayed by 2 hours due to problems with the sanitation system. Flying back home, our flight was delayed 3 hours due to electrical problems! It appears to me they do not keep up with regular mtce. on their planes, as that seems extremely poor. This was the first and LAST time I will fly on Spirit."
Cons: "Having to figure out on my own to check bags days before so I wouldn't get charged a ridiculous amount when I arrived. Wasn't allowed a carry on for free. Be sure to print your boarding pass a day ahead of time or they will even charge you for that! Fly name brand airlines, it will cost the same on the end if not less."
Cons: "Flight delay of three hours was not quick about letting passengers know. Checked bags and carry on bags cost over 50 each. The weight limit was 40 lbs not 50 which was an additional 25 dollars at minimum. Flew with spirit for a discounted flight rate will not fly again because after all the money for bags it cost more than delta which has free bags and complimentary snacks and drinks"
Cons: "We paid $50 to check my wife's bag and they lost it! They also charge you $55 for a carry-on bag. We are only in Arizona for four days and it had everything important in it for us and our baby. The sad thing is that my smaller checked bag was shipped properly but we had nothing important in it. If they hadn't lost our luggage I think my review would be a lot different or our experience would be much better."
Pros: "The flight was smooth and quick"
Cons: "Nothing bad to say about the flight"
Pros: "Flight was good."
Cons: "I did not like the extremely high bag prices and seat prices - outrageous. I have always assumed that when you buy a ticket it entitles you to a seat on the plane. I guess not any more. I had to pay $14 each way. That is just wrong!!! There were a few free seats, but very few and they were taken.. This airline brags about their low ticket prices. They are much higher when you add all the other charges in. I will not travel on this airline again. It is sad how everything is all about gouging the customer for as much money as they can."
Cons: "I missed that my airfare would not include paying additional for carry on luggage."
Cons: "Tickets are cheap but airline doesn't tell you of all the hidden fees like luggage fee seats etc. Plane had several empty seats yet flight attended didn't let people switch seats."
