Airline reviews

They changed plans after I had checked in and had my confirmed seat. They changed my comfort seat to main cabin and even though there were 4 available comfort seats showing, I wasn’t able to pick one. When I asked at the counter if I could switch back to my comfort she said no.. bc someone else may have higher status than me which is ridiculous bc I was originally comfort. On the flight, I asked the flight attendant to switch and he said once they closed the doors he’d let me know, and he never said anything to me again. Plus we were an hour late arriving, because apparently we weren’t cleared to land and we had to circle. Not sure what’s up with Delta lately, but this was a crappy experience.

Pros: "Helpful and attentive crew"
Cons: "The pilot take off, navigation in the air, and landing were horrible ."
Pros: "Crew was fantastic. Seats are narrow in space, but more comfortable than other airlines."
Cons: "Drink and snack service, but captain was concerned about "bumps""
Pros: "Crew was super amazing and friendly! Very good service also!"
Cons: "No seat back entertainment.."
Pros: "Ok"
Cons: "So uncomfortable with tiny seats"
Cons: "the food"
Pros: "price great; direct flight;"
Cons: "cramped"
Pros: "Boarding was very efficient. Flight attendants were helpful and kind and seemed to care."
Cons: "We booked basic seats knowing we might not sit together however we did not know they would separate children. They put my husband and I in an exit row and my daughter at the back of the plane with strangers. I was not comfortable with strangers being responsible for my child. I assumed they would seat children with at least one parent. We did ask to move at the gate and the accommodated us with the last row on the plane. No recline, no window, and right next to the bathrooms. We took it to be with our kid but this policy needs to be revised. Kids should always be seated with the adult responsible for them... who knows what kind of person might end up next to my child. Not to mention if she had needed something is the stranger gonna take care of it? It’s just a bad practice imo."
Pros: "Quick and easy boarding and departing. Wonderful and friendly staff."
Cons: "Honestly, everything was great. Food and entertainment were a little lacking but for a 3 hour flight it was more than acceptable."
Cons: "Flight delay"
Pros: "On time, comfortable flight. Great crew and service."
Cons: "Nothing. Everything was great."

Pros: "Helpful crew."
Cons: "These planes are tiny. Our equipment was B717."
Pros: "Small plane without bells and whistles and no middle seats."
Cons: "The internet would not work. I couldn’t use any of the inflight entertainment."
Pros: "Wonderful friendly crew. Comfy seat. Very pleasantly impressed with the comfort on a CRJ900 -- windows are large and closer to eye level, standing room is enough."
Pros: "Crew was great as always. Friendly and professional"
Cons: "We had a delay that complicated our getting home but all ended up OK"
Pros: "Crew was amazing and super helpful."
Cons: "Just the fumes of fuel inside the cabin was nauseating. Never had similar issue with air travel before."
Cons: "Leg room was lacking."
Cons: "Never made it because of my originating flight"
Cons: "The airline cancelled the flight alluring weather conditions, when the reality was they did not wanted the plane to park in Kansas. The weather conditions were even worse on the flight I was moved to, and that flight was not cancelled. They absolutely did not care about the passengers"
Pros: "New plane. Great movie selection. More stylish seats + bathroom. Overall very good and I think Delta has really made an effort to improve it's service. It's noticeable."
Cons: "Plane felt very dry compared to others. The electrical plug outlet jams right at around your knee level. Bread was cold and rock hard (seriously, can we not come up with a good solution for this?)."
Pros: "Nice people"
Cons: "Waiting at gate in KC"
Pros: "Left ontime great breakfast. Good service No complaints"
Cons: "I loved the trip No negative comments."

Pros: "The movies kept my daughter busy."
Pros: "I liked that I was able to check my carry-on to for free"
Cons: "I hated the seat and zone that I was assigned. I was literally the last seat in the back and also the very last person to board and get off the plane. It was terrible. Please select better seats for customers"
Pros: "Professional, courteous, and responsive attendants and flight crew."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "Great services ce."

Pros: "Everything. Pilots and crew"
Pros: "Made the best of a overcrowded messy airport"
Pros: "I liked getting home"
Cons: "I didn’t like the delays without warning or any benefits at the end."
Cons: "Delays. Ways late."
Pros: "The service and non stop smooth ride. Boarding was a new experiance taking a bus to the plane. Was quick and crew helpful storing my carryon. Everyone very helpful."
Cons: "The overhead bin did not stay down low enough so that I could place my bag in. It would lower then before I could place my bag raise slightly by a few inches. For someone of my height (5’5”) that was problematic. Fortunately another passenger saw my dilemma and held the bin lower to its full opening capacity. This also momentarily slowed down the boarding process."
Cons: "If some takes up two seats , then they should buy two seats. Very simple"
Cons: "There was no gluten free snack option."
Pros: "The quick flight was nice, the flight attendants were super sweet and kind and were willing to give me extra snacks when I requested for them. No screens on this flight, but understandable since it was such a short flight :)"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Flight attendant late arriving to his job causing a 30 minute delay in boarding. Desk staff at airport seemed more interested in their own conversations than helping passengers . Fight attendants seemed uninterested in their jobs and lacked warmth. 45 minutes late arriving in Kansas City no announcements from captain"
Pros: "Friendly staff.."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Free pretzels and drink"
Cons: "Not enough overhead space for everyone's carry-on bags so I sat with mine down by my feet which left me little foot space. Was a bit uncomfortable"
Cons: "N/an/a"
Pros: "The fact that there were no delays!"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Great gate agent at JFK on the layover."
Cons: "No assigned seats on second flight til we got to JFK."
Pros: "Left ontime, arrived 30minutes early."
Pros: "Seats in economy had a little more elbow room and space. They offered free movies and free satelite tv as well as better snack options."
Cons: "Not being able to pick seats until the gate. Traveled with 4 friends and all of us sat separate. 4 of us in middle seats."
Pros: "The complimentary entertainment was great, made the flight enjoyable."
Cons: "The con was the need for a connecting flight and the second plane didn't have the same perks."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I did not like the fact that I have been with Delta for years and their response to me about booking my flight and using the payment method was they are working on it and there is nothing they can do. They would not even offer to hold my flight for 24 hours in case they fixed the issue within that time frame. It was very disappointing."
Cons: "No entertainment available at all. There were empty seats available and passenger next to me in the aisle seat was not offered to move--she fell asleep with her legs crossed and kept kicking me in the middle seat--I was traveling with the window seat passenger."

Boarding: I was asked to check my carry on complimentary. I assume the staff believed my handbag was too big. Crew: n/a outside of the snack service. Comfort: the turbulence was so bad I was nauseous. I looked for the bag behind the seat and it looked used. Food: n/a except for the complimentary cookies. Those taste good. Entertainment: only allowed for Sprint/T-Mobile customers for some reason. My flight two days before included entertainment so this was disappointing. American Airlines spelled my name incorrectly which resulted in me being unable to use pre-check on both flights. I am overall disappointed with this experience.

Pros: "Smooth flight, great service onboard"
Pros: "The flight was short."
Cons: "I got fussed at going to the bathroom because the threat of turbulence was coming. We left later than the departure time."
Cons: "boarding, seating, entertainment"

Cons: "Food availability."
Pros: "Yes"

Pros: "Left on time"
Cons: "Customer service was bad"

Pros: "Good service . Timothy was excellent . Hostess ."
Pros: "Excellent flight. No complaints!"
Pros: "Flight on time ."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours, then moved to the next morning at 6am. Before we got to the hotel, the flight was pushed back to 8am. All for mechanical reasons. We've flown this route before, and have had an abnormally high number of mechanical issues. They seem to use older planes for these shorter flights, and it really shows. Technology could really help ease these situations. American's app does not allow you to look at rebooking options, so we had to stand in line for a solid 30 minutes to speak to an agent. Since it was the last flight of the night, there were only 3 agents there to help an entire plane's worth of people. Calling American didn't help. They couldn't help with hotel/food vouchers. These types of vouchers seem like something else that could be distributed through the app or electronically, eliminating the need to stand in line and grow increasingly frustrated. To add to the fun, the vouchers were not event enough to get a hot dog and drink for dinner, then a coffee and pastry for breakfast. Once we got the vouchers, trying to get to the hotel was a disaster. They had 1 van, so they could get about 10 people every 30 minutes. We just took and Uber, and were eating in the restaurant by the time others were still arriving from the shuttle. There was no one from American there to help coordinate with the hotel or shuttle. We were like blind sheep wandering around looking for the van. Finally, arrive for the flight the next day, and they start boarding about 10 minutes before the 8am takeoff time. So, of course, we were late getting off the ground. Then, when we arrived in Dallas, our gate was occupied by another plane, so we got to sit on an old plane for an extra 30 minutes until another gate opened up for us. Really, other than crashing, not much else could have gone wrong. Made American look completely incompetent...which is happening more the more we use them. Next time, I'll pay a higher fare to fly with Southwest."
Pros: "Very smooth fast check in"
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "Gate attendant kept us informed frequently as to the status of the flight"
Cons: "Rudeness/snappiness of the stewardesses"
Pros: "Timely and prepared flight."
Pros: "Boarding and debar king was quick."
Cons: "Attendant was surly, no coffee, no continental breakfast as indicated on the reservation. Very disappointed with in-flight service."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly, flight arrived ahead of schedule, planeside check-in for baggage was expedient"
Cons: "The plane departed at least 15 minutes late but the departure time was never updated to indicate the flight was delayed...even when it was ten minutes past the beginning of boarding and the plane had not even arrived yet. Felt like an exercise to improve flight scorecard performance. The flight landed at least fifteen minutes early...but we didn't have a gate..and ended up departing the plane​approximately on time...but planeside checked baggage took almost thirty additional minutes to finally return to the plane full of waiting customers. Felt way too long....and the ground crew didn't seem to appreciate that most people had a connection..."
Pros: "We made it home."
Cons: "The entertainment system in my seat didn't work. Seat 19D on flight 2580 from MSY to LAX."
Pros: "On time departures. Friendly crew."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "THE SEATS WERE COMFORTABLE AND CREW AND VERY ATTENTIVE."
Pros: "Long wait for take off. Everything else was great."
Cons: "Inattentive flight attendants, overhead space was not well managed. Cash only"
Cons: "Because it was a day later!!!"
Cons: "Had to wait on the crew Short fight rushed service"
Pros: "Great seats."
Cons: "Customer service both over the phone and in person not very helpful to ensure connecting flights were made. Much better experience with Southwest in regards to coordinating delayed flights. AA could have done a much better job to ensure more flyers made thei connecting flights."
Pros: "Everything was on time. American sometimes has free movies you can watch"
Cons: "Nothing. Everything was good"
Cons: "I got stuck in DC overnight and I was not provided with a hotel or meal voucher:"
Pros: "Nice plane when we finally boarded it. Crew was very professional."

Cons: "6 hour delay"
Pros: "very good no problems.."
Cons: "all good thanks much"
Pros: "Flight was delayed but boarding at DCA was very efficient and quick"
Cons: "Flight attendants seemed bothered by something and weren't very nice. They looked/seemed tired. Cabin lights were on the whole time for a ~3 hour flight which began at 830pm."
Cons: "I purchased a round trip ticket to Miami for my infant son and I to accompany my wife on her business trip. First off, there was a 2.5 hour delay. The flight was overbooked. The lady at the ticket counter would not switch my seat to be seated next to my wife and 4 month old infant. Luckily the gentleman beside her was willing to switch seats so that she could comfortably breast feed our son. My checked luggage was severely damaged. The side of the luggage was caved in and one wheel was completely ripped off while the other was partially damaged. A cart had to be rented in order to transport the broken suitcase through the airport to the rental car service area where we picked up our car. The infant car seat belonging to a $180 traveling system was damaged and is missing pieces that secure the broken canopy. We were rudely advised by a staff member to file a report as she pointed in the general directional of a line a mile long. We have been advised by the manufacturing company to discontinue the use of this car seat because it is no longer considered safe for the baby to travel in. Should we ever be involved in an accident, the car seat would likely fail to ensure the baby's safety due to the mishandling by American Airline employees. Unfortunately since the flight was ridiculously delayed and my son was ill, we were unable to file the report. My wife has since contacted American Airlines via telephone and intends to write them a formal written complaint."
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Easy ticketing and boarding. Price was good"
Pros: "I flew on AA to New Orleans and was provided your typical soft drink and lite snack. I didn't realize that accommodation depends what flight you are on."
Pros: "Airport staff was amazing, helping us out with seats considering one of us was needing assistance due to health condition"
Pros: "Wonderful flight.... great crew!"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Not being stuck in Houston for 7 hours"
Cons: "The delay was horrible and the captain said it was because they needed extra sleep. I found this offensive as i was trying to complete a very long trip and was exhausted."
Cons: "Nothing. It was what you expect. Comfortable transportation and no crashes."
Pros: "Going home"
Pros: "7 hours added to trip due to poor management of missed flight in Brussels"
Cons: "United needs to do a better job of dealing with missed flights. Missed flights happen, but over an hour in various lines because they couldn’t manage relations with Brussels Air, to say nothing of not realizing there was no chance of making the flight"
Cons: "The plan had to be maintained with no option for getting to my final destination on time."
Pros: "Smooth landing."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "No compensation, no manager available because they were dealing with the same issue at another gate. Where is the customer service?"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and light hearted."
Pros: "The orderly fashion the airline boarded!"
Cons: "Entertainment?"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "My flight was delayed making me miss my connecting flight and was not compensated for anything only a sorry"

Pros: "Crew was fine"
Cons: "We weren't offered snacks. Plane was very hot. Seats uncomfortable"
Pros: "We made it home alive, so that's the main thing."
Cons: "Three hour delay, which wasn't clearly explained. From others waiting with us, we gathered that flights were delayed fur to some travel plans for POTUS. Does that always happen? I can't imagine it does."
Pros: "That transportation was available in Chicago."
Cons: "No problems."
Pros: "It was smooth sailing. Flight was full but not totally uncomfortable"
Cons: "I did not have an assigned seat until I got to the gate. Having to pay for entertainment on flight"
Pros: "Efficiency, punctuality, courteous service"
Cons: "Small aircraft, for the sector."
Cons: "The gate in Newark was a dump and the boarding process was chaotic"
Cons: "Took too long to get baggage"
Pros: "on schedule even though ORD had some weather issues but yes good flight.."
Pros: "The flight was pretty normal."
Cons: "It was difficult to get the media player to work to use the entertainment options."
Pros: "very kind flight crew, no complaints coming back!"
Cons: "We did have one seemingly annoyed flight attendant on the way to NOLA from Chicago, and older woman. Seemed like every question we had was a burden. Everyone else was really nice, though."
Pros: "Boarding and crew were good"
Cons: "No comfort at all. Plane was jam packed and I had no leg room, arm rests would not come up, no free wifi or free entertainment."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats with no leg room."
Pros: "easy boarding, helpful united employees"
Pros: "The crew was great!"
Cons: "It would be great if those with connecting flights could choose their seat for both flights"
Cons: "There were no vegan complimentary snacks"
Pros: "Flight delayed for a short time, explanation given- satisfying. Delayed flight info sent via text very helpful. Flight attendants and staff, very attentive, courteous, professional and informational. Over all satisfied with United airlines, thank you for my sucressful trip to Kansas City to celebrate my grandfathers 90th birthday!"
Cons: "Waited at the kiosk at the gate desk, took about 20 minutes for an agent to appear and help with customer service."
Pros: "Plane pushed away from gate a few minutes early bad was actually airborne two minutes after scheduled departure. Arrived early!"
Cons: "Seat didn't recline at all"
Pros: "Cheaper"
Cons: "Long boarding and delayed flight, lots of walking"
Cons: "The TSA at New Orleans airport was rude"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by over 4 hours, there was no clarity on what was going on. They made us change aircrafts, the ground staff was mean at best. In spite of the 4 hour wait they didn't even bother serving food or made any announcement to handle passenger anxiety and concerns. Delays are sometimes unavoidable and I have had experiences in the past but none that was handled this unprofessionally"
Cons: "Smooth flight, on time, safety procedures followed"
Pros: "I made it to the airport safe and sound."
Cons: "It was a complete cluster as if no one knew what was going on. Once we were finally able to board we sat on the plane for an additional 30 minutes or so because the air conditioning went out on the plan and we all had to sit there in the scalding heat while they fixed it."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "The staff was rude, bored, and appeared to be bothered by any request that was made. The flight was oversold, luckily I was able to get a seat (like I had booked and planned for) but my flight was horribly long. I was stuck next to someone that was drenched in perfume, it was so bad it hurt my sinuses. Since the flight was oversold there were no seats where I could move. Not like the attendants would have helped me anyways. I will not fly United again if I can help it."
Pros: "Couldn't have asked for more. Quick flight l. Got in early!"
Cons: "When I boarded the plane, I noticed crumbs and grease marks on my seat and crackers all over the floor at my feet. Rather than clean my area, the stewardess handed me wet wipes."
Cons: "Flight was bad and it took extra 4 hours before another one was provided. My luggage was damaged."
Pros: "Flight attendants were very helpful"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Pros: "The flight was comfortable with more leg room than other airlines and we actually landed 18 min early! What to go United Airlines."
Pros: "Delayed in Denver"
Pros: "Row 10, extra couple of inches is far more civilized."
Cons: "Didn't have the United app downloaded in time, so couldn't use the WiFi. No alternative."
Pros: "What I like it was very peaceful flight overall the staff was excellent and communicated with everyone very well."
Cons: "I really don't have any dislikes about this flight"
Pros: "The professional services"
Cons: "Cramped leg space"
Pros: "Good flight attendants"
Cons: "Small seats"
Cons: "Didn't have a plane for us. Over 3 1/2 hour delay. Every time I fly this airline there is an issue with the flights."
Pros: "I liked the leg room and assigned seating."
Cons: "More information on drinks during the flight and the charges for backpacks."
Pros: "Frontier was awesome! Super nice cabin crew, great pilot, left on time and early arrival!"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and fun! Quick boarding!"
Cons: "Seats are not that comfortable."
Pros: "Initially the price seemed great"
Cons: "There was no free checked bag option so myself and 2 kids each had to pay $50 eaxh way costing me $300 extra. I could have got better flights from United for the extra $300"
Cons: "No reason given for the delay."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for over 5 hours. Either a crew or plane issue. We were told was a maintenance issue. I assumed that was airline responsibility to have done before flight. Very early am flight on Sunday. Meal vouchers offered but was asleep. Finally later boarded the plane. Sat on tarmac for long time. Finally captain announced that we would have to deplane because of maintenance issues. Got off plane. Sat in terminal. Went to get meal voucher hadn’t gotten earlier because I was asleep. The apparent supervisor at gate was awfully rude when I asked. She said that the vouchers were all already destroyed and they would not print another. Later rebounded and flight got home for a flight time of 1hour. Missed breakfast at hotel to get to airport on time for early flight only to have all this happen that should have been preventable. It was probably one of the worst flight experiences I have ever had. Difficult to describe on this forum adequately. I will NEVER fly Frontier airlines again and I will encourage all that I know to avoid this airline. I was charged to bring a carryon on board. I did not check a bag but would’ve been charged there too. There is a charge to pick a seat. Charge for any snack or drink on board. Horrible airline with terrible customer service. I will protest with my airline dollar and patronize its competition. I encourage you to do the same."
Cons: "Medical emergency once on board, delayed the departure from Denver. While no fault of the airlline, as a passenger onboard, waiting in the back of the plane. Some type f overhead announcement being made would have alleviated any undue conversations between passengers, wonderment of departure delay."
Pros: "Cheap"
Cons: "Luggage was expensive"
Pros: "The price!"
Cons: "I arrived 2 hours before my scheduled flight time but had to wait for at least 15 minutes before anyone came to the counter."
Pros: "professional staff. very smooth and safe flight."
Cons: "for safety i didn’t bring credit cards. I could not buy snacks. The seats were small and uncomfortable which I had too seat in for four hours. Only one toliet. It was very difficult to get of the seats to use the one toliet. I t was just too jammed."
Pros: "Flight attendant was awesome"
Cons: "No snacks."
Pros: "Quick and convienent flight."
Cons: "The speed"
Pros: "Always on time, frontiers gates are always closest to terminal."
Cons: "Comfort of seats but for a short flight it's fine."
Cons: "Despite being 3 hours late, the gate agent was in a hurry and barking at us. Cabin crew was nice and captain was calming."
Pros: "Space for personal items (since you have to pay for checked-in!)"
Cons: "Unaware of the fee for checked-in luggages Flight delayed of 1+ hour"
Pros: "arrived 1/2 hr. ahead of schedule and extremely fast baggage arrival (including skis)...professional and courteous staff"
Cons: "very uncomfortable seat bottoms"
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above, but smoother landing"
Pros: "I did not like the fact that I had to pay for a seat on the plane for I thought that was already in the payment when I purchased the flight and I never knew I had to pay for a carry on bag for I have flown with frontier once before, I guess time comes about a change. Oh yeah, there was no SNACKS, no peanuts or crackers provided, just water etc."
Cons: "The flight was good and the landing was smooth"
Pros: "Comfort.. I purchased coach. Not first class. Food.. Did tried the food at all Entertainment.. My Ipad"
Cons: "I did not disliked nothing at all"
Pros: "Service was great! from the curbside attendant who saved us a lot of hassle and time to the attendants, everyone was very helpful. Price was unbeatable. Unfortunately, to stay competitive in the industry, Frontier has become a "No Frills" airline. If you plan ahead with your luggage and snacks, they provide very affordable transportation."
Pros: "They charge for carry-ons, checked bags, your snacks on board, any seat assignment, you name it. NOTHING comes included."
Cons: "Seats are too close, seats are uncomfortable, their phone lines for customer service are horrible always pushing you to website or pay more charges, check in at New Orleans had only one agent with about 30 in line. STAY AWAY!!!!"
Cons: "I purchased the "perks" upgrade and then when I tried to put my jacket in the overhead storage the attendant told me I couldn't do that and that I had to hold it for the flight... never mind the overhead storage wasn't full. That's what an additional $58 gets you. Then the pilot didn't want to fly the plane because the soap dispenser wasn't functional in the forward lavatory. Seriously! We sat on the plane 35 minutes while he waited for an out of order decal for the lavatory door. Dumbest flight crew I ever encountered. I'm going back to United."
Cons: "Waited in 1 degree weather this morning for 1 hour to check my bag to New Orleans to find out delayed 3 hours, gate changed 4x, then waited another hour for plane to deboard and "security check," only to be told flight was cancelled and to "see customer service." Waited in line for two hours with four other flights with no information other than word of mouth "if we don't wait in line can't guarantee refund." Found out there are no other flights to Nola until Tuesday. Got refund by phone booked new flight for Monday morning on Southwest. Total time at airport today: 9 hours. Saddest part: people are trying to get home for Christmas. Moral of the story: don't be like Frontier airlines. Be prepared."
Pros: "There was nothing I cared for and they nickeled and dimed you on everything."
Cons: "The seats are crammed - with very little leg room. It costs 30.00 to transport your luggage one way and I will never fly Frontier again - not a pleasant experience."
Pros: "Flights were overall good. Airplane crew was attentive and cordial- sats are comfortable although not reclineable. Flight was on time and even arrived ahead of schedule"
Cons: "Check in crew was not very cordial/friendly- Did not have any check in Kiosks open at MSY and no one around the dask for over 40 minutes Tried to check in online 12 hours prior to my flight so I could get discounted check in bag prices and it would not accept my email as contact so it would not let me finalize the process so had to pay full price at airport- Although flight arrived early- had to wait almost one hour for luggage"
Pros: "Boarding"
Cons: "An air hostess on the flight to New Orleans would make jokes with the guys across the aisle rather than bring me a glass of water. Another air hostess booed me on my way out when being told that."
Cons: "The plane looked old (chipped paint, outdated upholstery). Seats did not recline. Had to pay for all baggage, carry-ons and drinks/food: this greatly increased the price of what we originally thought was a good deal on our flight."
Pros: "Three out of four planes on the round trip were new and in excellent condition."
Cons: "Three out of the four planes round trip were delayed. It is ridiculous that the only plane that actually left on time was the very first flight out on a Sunday morning."
Cons: "Flight delayed for three hours, no flight attendant to talk to, long wait on the phone before anyone would pick up and when I did get through to a human she could do nothing to help and kept repeating herself because she had nothing real to say. Plus they hit you with hidden charges left and right. The seats don't recline and the flight attendants are not available to help because they're so busy. Never again!"
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "1. They charge for every little thing. Each checked bag is $25.00 and each carry on is $35.00. They also charge you for a seat. So once you purchase your ticket, you then have to pay an additional fee to seat down. 2. The staff is unprofessional. Not only does everyone look sloppy, but the staff is comprised of individuals that don't care at all about customers and have been poorly trained. The quality is very low. 3. I was hit and then verbally abused by a gentlemen on the plane, they laughed and did nothing!!!!! 4. They only allow 15 bags on their plane! After 15, they will move your bags to a different plane without telling you. What kind of nonsense is that?!"
Pros: "Crew and pilots were excellent - good communication to passengers."
Cons: "Having to pay extra for carry-on luggage. Having to pay extra for non-alcoholic beverages. Boarding at the gate completely stopped with zero explanation from the gate employees."
Cons: "Having to pay for carry on-your SEAT which was uncomfortable-pay for nuts or pretzels?"
Cons: "We sat on the tarmack for 1.5 hours once we arrived at our destination. I was also surprised at how expensive it was for carry-on and checked luggage. I don't know if I'll fly frontier again."
Pros: "Inexpensive flight. Text messages about the delay were really helpful. App was perfect and easy to use. I loved that I could check in on the app."
Cons: "A nearby passenger went to the bar during the three hour delay and was drunk by the time he arrived on the plane. He then drank more during the flight. Not a ton to be done about that, but it made my flight experience a little more difficult. I was surprised you had to pay for a soda and snack, but I am okay with that overall. I think you should get a free carry-on bag though, or at least one that is cheaper than $35. Lines to check baggage were long and ill-attended. Would rather have been able to take a carry-on and skip checking a bag at all."
Cons: "Seats are super uncomfortable they dont recline at all!! , A drink cost 2 dollars you have to pay 45 each way for a Carrry on!! Next time ill pay a little extra and atleast get to have a carry on reclining seats and a complementary drink ! it ends up costing the same but atleast ill be somewhat comfortable ! Never again will i fly Frontier its not worth it"
Cons: "Being delayed 30 min at the gate and then another hour in the air !"
Pros: "Crew was nice, helpful."
Cons: "Plane was late, as usual. Typical frontier delays."
Pros: "- cheap flight"
Cons: "- having to pay for carry-on bag - having to pay for soda/juice and snacks on the flight (not having a complimentary option) - seats didn't recline"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Tried to charge me $60 for carry on - on my second flight. Huge line of angry customers. Starting to be known as the worst airline in the history of flying."
Pros: "cheap ticket, short flight"
Cons: "luggage, carry on policies, cheap seats and feel"
Cons: "A 40 minute layover turned into a 5 hour layover in Denver. Frontier did not reimburse for the inconvenience, and sent a inadequate $50.00 coupon towards my next Frontier flight IF USED WITHIN 90 DAYS!! That was an insult, not a good faith gesture. They nickel and dime for everything, and take poor accountability for their errors."
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "Cramped seating was really uncomfortable. Charging for seat assignment and carry on bags was not clear at the te I booked. Not a nice surprise. I will avoid Frontier in the future."
Cons: "When I arrived at the Frontier desk and checked in I let them know that I was disabled and was not able to make the walk to the departure gate. They did nothing to assist me and finally after 40 minutes an airport employee that witnessed this borrowed a wheelchair from Delta and got me to my flight. I was embarrassed and shamed by this airline. Andrew Darden"
Pros: "Direct flight."
Cons: "When I went to check in for my super cheap flight suddenly I had to pay to pick a seat! I've come to expect to pay to check a bag but this was such a lie to pay for the flight and then have to pay to have a seat. Did I buy a standing room only?"
Pros: "I had seats to myself!"
Cons: "Didn't like how u have to pay for refreshments alcohol I understand but like soda and all"
Pros: "Boarding was easy. On time departure and on time arrival."
Cons: "Short flight so no food or entertainment. Initially crew said would be coming with cart with complimentary beverages and then they said they weren't but you could buy items."
Cons: "It was a terrible experience in my life. A Frontier female worker who was working at O'Hare international airport between 4pm and 5pm was really rude. There was a problem in my barcode so I asked how I could solve the problem. When I first went there, she said "no" and she started to ignore me by not answering. I almost missed the flight. And when I went there twice, the woman hided under the counter after seeing me. I was shocked. The worker at Frontier was never professional and acted like a child. The service was terrible. I would feel okay if she could try to help me not to miss the flight. Instead, she had no willing to help me, and sneered me. I missed the flight so I had to buy a new flight ticket. I'll NEVER use Frontier anymore, and I'll recommend to people not to take Frontier. Workers' service is the representative of the company, and she was terrible."
Cons: "Wasn't aware that Frontier does not participate in TSA pre-check. My fault for not researching more, but I almost missed my flight. Also the crew on the plane could have been more informative about procedures."
Cons: "Didn't make the return flight because our first flight out of Denver didn't happen and we had to cancel the whole trip. Fees we were prepared for- but I will never trust frontier to get me to where I need to go."

Absolutely everything about this flight experience was awful. My flight was initially cancelled due to Hurricane Ida, but at no point did I feel the customer service was aimed at helping me find a way home to New Orleans. My flight was then changed again last minute without any warning or timely communication, removing me from the flight altogether and rescheduling me, (again, without my consent or knowledge) for a flight to Baltimore for the next day. Still trying to figure out why they thought that was a good choice, taking me even further away from my originally planned destination and now devastated home. The gate agents were overwhelmed with the number of disgruntled and confused passengers (I was not the only one who was switched to a different flight without consultation) and were frankly unprepared for the number of passengers who now needed assistance, further delaying the boarding process & flights for everyone onboard. I learned my lesson trying to save a few extra bucks. I will never fly Spirit again.

Pros: "The flight was smooth and the landing was prefect. The flight attendants were especially kind."
Cons: "Digital boarding pass without error."
Pros: "Flight attendants were both really nice"
Cons: "Seats too crammed."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Add on fees - feels like a scam. Should have flown SouthWest like I usually do."
Cons: "Pay for carry on bag, pay to pick a seat, seats do not decline and are extremely uncomfortable and cramped, rude staff, smallest pull out tray possible, no pocket on seat in front to hold personal items, no tv or magazines, not even a complimentary glass of water!! They make up for the cheap flight by charging for every single thing!!!"
Pros: "Boarding was super fast"
Cons: "Plane was filthy. Didn’t clean between flights in the slightest"
Pros: "I liked the cost of the tickets."
Cons: "It seems that they don’t really care about inconvenience to the customers."
Pros: "they charged an $100 fee to my card and i have no reason why. very annoyed by this and cant get a straight"
Pros: "Everything was smooth and on time."
Cons: "Multiple delays. Turbulence. Not even offered water."
Pros: "The flight was smooth and easy sailing"
Cons: "How crowded the plane was"
Pros: "Very funny and interesting attendants"
Cons: "That one has to buy water"
Cons: "Service"
Cons: "Not enough leg room. Water and small snacks not complimentary"
Cons: "Small seats"
Cons: "They charge for water. The seats don’t recline. There is no wifi. My ticket cost $500."
Pros: "Short non stop flight. Departure and arrival on time."
Cons: "Small, uncomfortable cramped seats. Tiny tray table that holds nothing. Cheap flight made expensive by cost of bag."
Pros: "The seats are comfortable. Everyone was friendly. Plane was clean. And they stayed on time at the gate and the flight. I used to fly SouthWest all the time in the past, i will never fly SouthWest in the future. I was even happy when i had to call a representative about adding a window seat. They were friendly, helpful. I owned a business for 30 years, hardly ever do people give positive feedback. Well done"
Pros: "Staff are always very professional and kind."
Cons: "Seat mates needed a bath -- BADLY. I don't think there is anything the airlines can do about that!"
Pros: "Seats and staff"
Pros: "The plane seemed safe and the flight crew were human"
Cons: "An hour plus delay at New Orleans due to weather at O'Hare turned into an extra 40 minutes dickering around the runways waiting for a gate. Also, as we approached final descent, we were told to return our seat backs to their upright position, which is kind of a dick move because the seats on this plane don't recline. Too much A/C."
Pros: "The flight was on time and baggage retrieval was quick."
Cons: "I didn't like having to buy my baggage and seat in addition to my ticket. That was a bit confusing to me."
Pros: "Cleanliness."
Cons: "Delayed flight"
Pros: "I made it home from NOLA in one piece."
Cons: "Had to wait for a gate to open for 40 minutes once we landed at our final destination. I realize that's not entirely the airlines fault, but it is their fault for thinking that it takes close to 3 hours to fly from NOLA to Chicago when it really only takes a little over 2 hours. So of course O'Hare didn't have a gate ready when we arrived 40 minutes early."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "3 1/2 hours delay with minimal explanation. Just unacceptable. Spirit Airlines is not improving their image with this type of customer service. Seems everyone expected it and this is not the way your Airline reputation should be defined."
Pros: "Very efficient boarding. Flight crew was incredibly polite. The plane was spotless."
Cons: "They have paper boarding passes. Supposedly they have an app but I couldn't find it. Kind of a pain to have to print the pass or get one before my flight. The seats are packed so close together my legs barely fit. The flight was packed with kids, probably because what parentI knew I'd have to pay for a carry on, but finding out it was an additional $50 each way was a surprise. I had tried to find the fees prior to purchase but couldn't find them. In retrospect, I could have flown another airline cheaper."
Cons: "I couldn't make that flight and called ahead the airlines to let them know. But a day after found out my return flight has been canceled as well. Terrible terrible experience. Had to buy a return flight again."
Pros: "Boarding was easy and the crew was friendly"
Cons: "The charges for our carry on baggage and the flight delays."
Cons: "Staff refused to acknowledge that I had paid for my luggage, claiming that I must have paid some other mystery fee. Then an hour later when the connecting flight was reported to be 2+ hours delayed, claimed that the airlines 90 minute delay policy wasn't being violated and wouldn't give a refund either."
Pros: "On one leg of our flight, the humor injected into the safety procedure instructions was wonderful. Thank you."
Pros: "arriving ahead of schedule"
Cons: "high baggage fee and starving customers by selling them foods and drinks"
Pros: "Ease of boarding and crew was polite"
Cons: "price of food for purchase. Some snacks should be complimentary"
Pros: "Boarding early was good"
Cons: "They boarded earlier than boarding time so the plane was half full Seats were small and we were packed in the plane with empty seats around us All of my friends has major issues with their flight so it makes me least of ever flying Spirit again"
Pros: "Will never fly them again."
Pros: "Overall, not recommend, do not like it, delayed, have to pay for carry-on lugggage and water!"
Pros: "We have not flown in 16 years so a lot has changed since then. Flights were good. Crews were great. Departure and arrival were on time BUT all of the up-charges for bags and seats are criminal. Ended up costing more than if we would have just flown with another company."
Pros: "Beautiful flight attendant, efficient boarding and deboarding."
Cons: "Unclear about baggage costs when making reservations and at the airport. Found getting checked in on my first Spirit flight unclear due to all the membership promotion on the same screen page."
Cons: "I will never fly Spirit again."
Pros: "The crew and stewardesses were nice and courteous, the flight was stable (not much turbulence) and timely."
Cons: "Hidden fees, i.e. individual bag fees, seat assignments, and $2 to print itinerary at airport if you don't have a printer."
Cons: "We had a layover of 9+ hours. They were not able to get us in a connecting flight."
Cons: "The a la carte menu can drive up the price of the ticket by over $150 per person if you aren't aware of their luggage and seating pricing when you book the original ticket. If you purchase your luggage check-in upon purchase, it is $31 per bag...but you need to be aware of this when you book. If you missed the small print on that and learn of it later, you will pay $41. If you check it in at the airport, you will pay $50 per bag. Their luggage limit is 40 lbs. vs. 50 lbs. at most other airlines, and this can cause an additional $30 fee on top of the other fees. The seats are quite tight, and unless you are willing to pay for selecting a seat, you need to "trust" Spirit to choose your seat for you."
Pros: "spirit gave me hard time about everything..my kiosk boarding was not working...and by the time I made it to the desk,,,she denied me boarding,,,,,,then charged me for baggage even though my carryon fit into the approved bin...I will never fly spirit again..."
Cons: "They nickle and dime you for an overall terrible service. I will NEVER use this airline again. I'd rather fly American Airlines. In order to do check in online, you have to register an account and the website was down when I was trying to check my flight information."
Pros: "Low fare"
Cons: "Poorly prepared and equipped ground crew"
Pros: "The comfortable seating was the best part of the flight."
Cons: "The main crew on the microphone did not speak clearly. There was no entertainment for the flight even though it was short. Boarding flowed ok."
Cons: "That you don't at least get free water."
Cons: "Delayed flight. Out - dated seats without entertainment. Seats did not recline."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled and the spirit crew was helpless"
Pros: "was on the phone for five hours trying to change my flight. kept getting transfered, people couldnt speak clear english and i have a witness to the horrible experince. Unbelivable!!! Then...in the end, guess what...I ended up talking to the same lady I first spoke with!!"
Cons: "The crew wasnt polite. I had a drunk person in front of me and they didn't do anything. Not even an apology."
