Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The crew was good. Now fast but good."
Cons: "The food was pretty basic."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours. Even though I had carry on, they checked it and this made me waste my time at baggage claim rather than gate checking. Flight attendants were miserable. Power supply didn’t work at seats."
Pros: "Our seats were assigned at the gate. Somehow we were given the comfort + seats. Very nice! Thank you!"
Pros: "Cabin service very good and hot meal was unusually good for economy section (especially the chicken with hollandaise sauce)"
Pros: "The flight attendants was very rude & keep harassing me about my emotional support dog, I was a real animal hater, the complaint is to long to list here, never experienced such a rude flight attendant in all my years of flying , I filed a official complaint with delta."
Pros: "In-flight entertainment, speed of flight"
Cons: "I was delayed over 2 hours"
Cons: "We were on the tarmac for almost 2 hours. It's probably LaGuardia but the experience was very bad."
Cons: "I was the very first person in line for Zone 3, and they automatically told me I had to gate check my bag, which would mean adding at least 20 minutes when I landed. I took it on the plane anyway; and there was PLENTY of space in the overhead compartments. This feels like I’m being treated as a second class citizen because I was unwilling to be nickel and dimed for seat or boarding upgrades. It’s infuriating"
Cons: "Delayed by 3 hours"
Pros: "-forgot to charge me for wine"
Cons: "-chair was broken -tray was broken -had to spend $33 for wifi that didn't even work -didn't have everything they say they offer to guests on the flight"
Pros: "Plane clean."
Cons: "Unorganized boarding at LGA."
Pros: "Delta has always be a step above the rest. Traveling with my children is not a problem and frowned upon with Delta. I rarely choose competitive airlines and will continue to use Delta as much as possible."
Pros: "The tv on the back of the headrest was great."
Cons: "Too much chatter over the intercom."
Cons: "The new boarding pillars with Priority, Sky, Zone 1, Zone 2, etc was a mess. In concept it should be a good process, but it was just a sea of people asking each other which boarding group they were in. Going back to asking those who are in a particular boarding zone to form a line and doing so each zone at a time seems like a smoother process."
Cons: "Had to buy a one-way ticket on American, as Delta would not move me to another airline,"
Pros: "i got to Atlanta safely"
Cons: "what can cookies and a cup of juice do for me with all the delays ? i was hungry and tired. Seriously DELTA, it was a horrible time. i deserved a compensation from Delta for the entire day."

Cons: "No changing table in restroom made it hard to change infant."
Pros: "Crew was very accommodating and friendly."
Pros: "The friendliness and helpfulness of flight attendants was outstanding"
Pros: "I have not traveled on Delta for years. And this experience was great checking to boardING then the service was great. But I have to back up. The customer service on the phone that helped me adjust my flight, she was great. So I have to say delta was great"
Cons: "The first class food was okay for the length of the flight."
Pros: "Great flight"
Cons: "I wasn't able to choose my seat even though I bought my ticket a while back. Seat assignments were given at the gate and we were never given a real reason for this. I ended up in a middle seat sandwiched between people, and the man at the end slept the entire time, making it difficult to get up and walk around which I need to do as I am prone to DVTs."
Pros: "I have difficulty walking, the crew made sure that I got to my seat on the plane safely, and made sure that I had wheelchair support."
Pros: "On time, friendly staff, advertised Gogo Wifi not working."
Pros: "I didn't fly from LA to Indianapolis"
Pros: "Smiley flight attendants"

Pros: "Crew was friendly, flight was smooth. Gate agent was excellent"
Pros: "Got me to my destination safe and on time!"
Pros: "Delta may not be the best however you can tell that they are always striving to be better each and everyday."
Cons: "There's always some personnel who slips through the cracks. I was told to please use the restroom located at the back of the plane versus the one closet to me at comfort class which is right behind first class. Didn't appreciate that much."
Cons: "On the run way for 1 hour in line to take off"
Cons: "Purchased these tickets over a month ago and I was never able to select my seats. I am a Delta frequent flier, and despite logging on and checking in, was told at the airport counter that I would be assigned a seat at the gate. Of course we were assigned to the last row of the antiquated MD 88, right next to one of the engines. As if the lack of reclining seats was bad enough, the engine noise and vibration was almost unbearable on the flight that was delayed one hour on the Tarmac. The crew was understanding and we did get to Orlando safely...a big plus."
Cons: "absurdly cramped seating."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and boarding was very fast."
Cons: "I did not dislike anything about my flight it was amazing."
Pros: "Everything, but especially upgraded seating due to delayed flight which caused us to miss layover flight."
Cons: "Lost time to destination (vacation) due to delayed flight then missing our layover flight. Upgraded to Comfort+ was appreciated but time lost was time lost."
Pros: "Arrived at destination 30 mins earlier than expected."
Cons: "Boarding was a little late and slow. But it smoothed itself out since we arrived at our destination 30 mins earlier than expected."
Pros: "The Delta terminal at La Guardia was amazing I felt like I was back in Singapore , I had my choice of really good food ranging from Italian , German , Japanese and some American places all of which sounded good the prices were a bit expensive but that is just airports !"
Pros: "Easy boarding."
Cons: "I flew first on delta to Miami. Short trip, but was very disappointed in today's service. Instead of the normal solid good flight crew, I found a surly crew who congregated in the galley on this short flight and sat around eating in lieu of working the flight. Very disappointing."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Seated in the back was so noisy ,I will try not to take Delta .First time flying Delta,"
Pros: "The flight was smooth, boarding went quickly, and the crew were nice. We'd taxied to the runway when takeoff was delayed by an incident ahead of us with another plane, and the flight attendants didn't give anyone a hard time about getting up to go to the restroom while we waited for the situation to be cleared, which I really appreciated."
Cons: "It was hot on the flight. The air vent on my seat wouldn't open. The seats seemed smaller than usual. (Even for modern day airline seats.) I flew to NY on American Airlines, and was relatively comfy, but was looking forward to my Delta flight back to Nashville, because I've been more pleased with Delta in the past. Maybe because the plane was smaller than I usually fly on or something (?), I spent the whole flight crammed into the corner, trying not to bump into the lady next to me (and she wasn't taking up too much space, btw - neither of us was overweight and neither of us used the shared armrest, we were both just wedged into our seats. Very uncomfortable)."
Pros: "The crew couldn't have been better--polite and efficient"
Cons: "The light was so weak that I could not read. Also, it was uncomfortably warm."
Cons: "All Excellent"
Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful"
Cons: "The new AA rule about not being able to bring any carry on. Next we won’t be able to get a coat or a purse on. They making it harder and harder to fly with them."
Pros: "On time and arrived early!"
Cons: "Had almost a 4 hour delay !!!!!"
Pros: "Power kept me working, big value to me"
Cons: "The staff encouraged me to get on my first delayed flight because my second was delayed as well. But as I landed from my first flight the second flights delay was reversed and I had no notification of this change. I missed my connecting flight. Had to stay in the airport all night, had to fly into a different destination at 7 am. No explanations, no help. Terrible."
Pros: "Left on time Nice flight attendants Arrived early"
Cons: "Runway time in New York"
Pros: "The fly departed on time"
Cons: "Two hour delay in departure. They had an unspecified mechanical problem and had to get a different aircraft. They did not make any restitution to the passengers. Not even a free beer."
Pros: "Bad weather came in n I was rerouted on Time"
Cons: "The crew wasn't very friendly - which is something I have noticed between AA and United. United seems to be much more friendly and welcoming."
Pros: "Everything was good from boarding to communication from the crew till we got off...I've heard a lot of bad things about American but I had a good experience :)"
Cons: "Well it wasn't a big deal since it wasn't a long flight but I wish they had gave a bagel or something for breakfast but it wasn't a big deal they gave pretzels and a beverage..."
Pros: "On time Friendly attendants Great service Mike in First Class was awesome"
Cons: "No complaints"
Cons: "American Airlines does not care about its customers."
Pros: "Boarding was very efficient"

Cons: "Plane was not board on time. Delayed taking off."
Pros: "Everyone was pleasant & professional"
Cons: "The seats were very uncomfortable"
Cons: "7 hours late with only 3-4 updates the whole time."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Easy to transfer luggage from an international flight to a domestic flight. The crew was accommodating. It is such a short flight that there were only pretzels and water without ice served on this flight. There was no entertainment on this flight. Small, clean plane for a less that 1 hour flight."
Pros: "My flight was delayed and redirected to a nervy airport. The staff at this airport was all on board and ready to assist everyone is getting the most current information and putting us a new connecting flights"
Cons: "The check in at LGA was not the smoothest. Most of the kiosk weren't working and was making it hard to check in"
Pros: "I changed my reservation in Hartford. Crew were extremely helpful."
Cons: "I ended up getting to my destination 6 hours after what I had planned."
Cons: "Delayed flight"
Pros: "Good Airplane"
Cons: "Delays and baggage delayed"
Cons: "Rude staff"
Pros: "Fact we got there"
Cons: "Poor customer handling at Laguardia and no info why we were being delayed."
Cons: "Never enough leg room!"
Pros: "Flight was quick, seamless, on-time, and comfortable. WiFi available. Arrived 10 minutes early. Recommend the shuttle because if you don't get one flight, they'll get you on the next. These days, the shuttle is more dependable than Amtrak."
Cons: "Would appreciate a USB port or an outlet."
Pros: "The flight attendants were amazing. I enjoyed the in flight entertainment and overall flight. The flight was only a couple of hours so there were no meals. I enjoyed a hot cup of tea during my flight. I was able to take a quick nap during the initial flight and catch a movie on the way back."
Cons: "The terminal at LGA is undergoing renovations, I had to take a shuttle bus to my gate. The shuffle down stairs, bus ride, and lines for boarding were annoying."
Pros: "The crew did everything they could for the passengers to make them comfortable and informed about the situation but unfortunately it was out of their hands."
Cons: "It may be La Guardia Airport that is the one to blame and not AA, but long story short I was on the airplane on the ground in NY for about 5 hours. We had a domino effect of things happen that caused us to be delayed and then cancelled. First a Gate change to a different terminal after boarding was suppose to begin so we had to take a shuttle over and we're still missing 50 passengers, Engine problem that required maintenance, refuel because we were in the plane on the ground waiting for so long, deplane and replane for 10 mins because of a law, on the runway and back to the gate for all these different occasions. When they finally let us off the plane after all these hours it was because of weather (although the skies were blue and the pilot was confident it wouldn't be an issue) they didn't actually cancel the flight until 5pm, my flight was suppose to take off at 9am. They were also required by law to give us free snacks Bc we hadn't eaten all day or had fresh air--these were all chips and soda...in gluten free so I had to starve. AA customer relations said they couldn't compensate because the issue that was documented in their records for my flight cancellation was because of "weather"... my flight couldn't be rescheduled until the following afternoon, making me have to cancel work 2 days in a row and pay for multiple taxis and and extra night of boarding. I will NEVER fly AA or La Guardia again."
Cons: "No power outlets. A bag of chips in 1st class is pretty weak. Compared to Europe flights we can from, aircraft felt like 1960's Aeroflot."
Pros: "It was on time boarding and landing"
Pros: "Was fairly standard flight. Left in time."
Cons: "Was in last group and had to check carry on."
Pros: "I liked the ease of the gate for the airplane."
Cons: "There was no entertainment. The airline did not offer a complimentary headphones, and failr sure the wifi was not even working. Also was not that big of a fan with the extra long layover. Was not a fan of the extra time in the holding pattern above Indianapolis, nor the extra time 150 feet from the gate after we landed."
Pros: "Small airport"
Cons: "Service and flexibility, needed to call online for assistance"
Pros: "My neighbor."
Cons: "We sat on the tarmac for over an hour for no apparent reason."
Pros: "Very full flight arrived 20 mins early."
Pros: "Smooth flight, barely late."
Cons: "Broken sink, horribly uncomfortable, cramped seats."
Pros: "Communication from personnel was good. The desk workers did there best to deal with upset customers"
Cons: "We were delayed to do weather. Nothing AS could do but they tried."
Cons: "I've got to the airport at 4:30am because my flight was at 8:00am. Unfortunately I had to wait until 12:30pm to take another flight because American Airlines didn't have a flight crew for our aircraft. They did not refund money for the waiting, they didn't give any voucher for breakfast, they just gave us chips and drinks. People were very anxious and mad about the sInitiation."
Cons: "HORRIBLE experience. I had a flight delay that forced me to reschedule to a flight the following morning and caused me to pay for an overnight at a hotel; none of the staff seemed to care whatsoever about their customers' travel plans or experience, giving us little to no information up to the point of canceling our flight, and doing even less to accommodate when plans were foiled. I honestly am waiting for a refund at this point. Terrible trip with American Airlines."
Pros: "Planes boarded on time"
Cons: "Long wait on runway before take off"
Pros: "Arrived early. Smooth flight."
Pros: "Speedy boarding"
Cons: "Unmotivated crew, uncomfortable seats."
Pros: "It seems like the plane was recently renovated and I loved the comfortable seats."
Cons: "There was virtually no free entertainment available."
Cons: "A little bumpy"
Cons: "The gate the flight was originally on changed, however there was never an announcement made over the intercom advising of the change. When the gate I was waiting at finally showed the flight information to Toledo, I had to find what gate I my flight was now on and had fifteen minutes to make it to the correct gate. Had the original gate displayed the new information any later I would have missed my flight."
Cons: "The seats were so old, I didn't have a screen to watch movies on and it was really really cold"
Pros: "Never again. I had a connecting flight with a one hour layover and almost missed it. The plane to charlotte was very late boarding. Once i land I rush to my gate because I only have 20 minutes before they start boarding ; I get to the gate and have to wait almost an hour. At this point I still havent eaten because I am waiting around by the gate and the attendants are not communicating any information. Then they finally tell us that the reason the fligt hasnt boarded was because the flight attendant misplaced her luggage in the previous flight and was waiting to arrive to the terminal. Now how is that my issue? American Airlines needs to do better!"
Pros: "Great announcements by lead flight attendant."
Pros: "ON. TIME. !!!"
Cons: "carry-on $30?! check in luggage $40?! ridiculous."
Cons: "Charging $45 for carry-on, is way too much, regardless of whether it's a budget airline. Round-trip it's an extra $90. Might as well put that money toward the flight of another airline."
Cons: "The gate crew was completely rude and would not help. Flight was delayed, nobody said anything, we were all waiting around. Never again will I fly with this airline. They are a joke."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Had to sit on the tarmac about 30 minutes on arrival in Indianapolis because another aircraft was at our gate. Why couldn't we have gone to a different gate? Arrival was at about 9pm and the airport wan't that busy. This was uncomfortable. Would have been a good time to hand out free snacks and beverages or drink coupons for a future flight."
Pros: "Cost effective"
Cons: "Seats extremely uncomfortable... but you get what you pay for"
Cons: "No es posible que haya atrasos en los vuelos"
Cons: "Fees for everything! Checked bags, in flight snacks/drinks, everything! Flight was delayed due to airline error, but staff did nothing to demonstrate they were sorry for the delay. Pilot apologized, but there was no other effort to remedy the situation."
Cons: "I did not book this particular flight for these dates."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 3 hours, then we boarded the plane at 1:46AM. Only to have the flight cancelled. After 45min on the plane we had to get off and wait until 3:45AM to find out what the next step was (rescheduled for 11:30AM). Overall the communication and transparency around this ordeal was handled terribly. Staff had no plan to deal with situation, provided helpline numbers were useless, email/text communication of the rescheduling was nonexistent All of this is not even getting into the cheap service and setup of the flight itself. Will not be flying frontier again"
Pros: "The landing"
Cons: "The cost of baggagge"
Pros: "It was inexpensive, at first Made it to destination safely"
Cons: "You had to pay for carry-on The seats on the plane were comparable to fold out lawn chairs. Plane needs updates, wifi"
Pros: "Crew was nice, but very uptight about wearing a seatbelt, not standing in line to use the bathroom, not changing seats, etc."
Cons: "I booked tickets with this airline for the first time because prices were significantly cheaper than with other airlines. However, I didn't realize I would have to pay $45 for carry on luggage, pay extra if I did want a seat in the middle, and even pay for soft drank! After factoring in all those things, it would have been a lot cheaper to use a different airline. Plus, it was by far the most uncomfortable airplane I have ever been on. No leg room, small seats that do not recline and have no cushion. Terrible experience!"
Pros: "Cost of ticket"
Cons: "Having to pay a fee to pick my seat, fee for carry-on luggage, and the worst thing was having to tip the Attendants for a diet Coke. This is a horrible practice and leave s a bad taste in my mouth."
Cons: "Seats are extremely uncomfortable. I was hurting even if my flight was only 3 hours. I was dreading the return flight. Seats don't lean back either."
Pros: "Southwest is pretty much my only other option to fly diect from MCO to IND. Southwest would charge me 3X as much for basically the same experience. Sure, Southwest might not charge me $1.99 + tip for a can of soda, but that's because they charge me $100s more on the airfare. I'll take $1.99 can of soda any day. The flight was on time. Boarding was simple and stress-free. The crew was friendly and efficient. The seats were a bit cramped, but not intolerable for a 2 hr flight. I could have purchased an aisle seat for about $30 more, which would still be cheaper than Southwest, but I chose to save money instead. I like having that choice. My baggage arrived intact and on time. Why would I fly with any other airline at these savings?"
Cons: "The seat was back breaking. The service was horrible, very few options of food."
Pros: "I slept through it!!!"
Pros: "I don't think it is right that you can't get a complimentary cup of coffee or a Coke product. To me that is a step too far in lack of hospitality. I don't care if I get entertained. I can read a book that I bring along. I also did not like that I had to purchase a seat to ride the plane. That seems wrong to me."
Cons: "Guess I put my thoughts in the wrong box. Read my suggestions in the other box please"
Pros: "It was fine"
Cons: "There is a $40 charge for carryon baggage. This should be made clear at the time of purchase."
Pros: "This was my first time flying Frontier... my overall experience was good. However, I was unaware that it was an a-la carte airline so minor difficulty maneuvering at first. Seating is a little tight but bearable. Crew was pleasant. Can do without food/beverage but need more comfortability/seating... Overall rating... 3.5"
Cons: "Extra cost for a seat Extra cost for a carry on Cost for a beverage"
Pros: "Very competitive pricing, good departure times, departures were on time and friendly crew."
Cons: "Changes need make to online check in. I selected our seats 24 Hrs in advance and the ticket desk gave our seats to another couple. Flight was not full so the issues was resolved. embarrassing to staff and customers. (both partes)"
Pros: "Good fare rate, clean aircraft."
Cons: "Seats don't recline, pay for any kind of refreshment (even water), no wifi or audio or video."
Pros: "A little bumpy, the plane was full. I almost don't make it to the airport on time. But everything else was good."
Pros: "It went from leaving 9:40 To leaving 2:25pm I was very disappointed and missed work that afternoon behind it. I feel like i should have received more then a 10 dollar coupon on food in New York. I travel at 6 times a year and frontier had made a bad impression on me...I was told i was going to receive an email with a 50 dollar coupon but I never got it."
Pros: "When we eventually got to our destination, we did so with the shiny side up."
Cons: "Delayed over five hours without any warning until we got to gate. I submitted my email and cell phone number when booking, but no notification. We could have enjoyed 80 deg and beautiful Orlando for five additional hours instead of the interior of the terminal. To add insult to injury, they were oversold and could not print us a set of boarding passes. The lady behind the counter said she had "never encountered this." I referred to my outbound flight where the very same thing happened 5 days ago. I wish I could run my business this way and make a profit!"
Cons: "No leg room."
Cons: "The payment process is confusing. At boarding there were many passengers who didn't know there was a charge for a carryon so that slowed down the boarding for the rest of us. Then you get going only to find out you have to pay for a soda too. I detest the nickel and dining. Just charge me one flat rate and call it a day."
Pros: "People where nice."
Cons: "Two Dollars for a bottle of Water... Seriously"
Cons: "Cheap tickets but then you have to pay for your seat after you already bought the ticket plus another $35 to check your bag. Paid $250 for the flight then had to pay another $70 just to get on with my bag and sit. Didn't get any good customer service from anyone who works on this airline. Didn't offer any free beverages on the flight. You had to pay $2 for a soda. Plane was old and beat up. None of the machines worked to print up my boarding pass which left me on a long line where me and a couple other people missed their flight due to lack of staff behind the counter. They tried to charge me another $100 for another flight and still charged me the $70 for the flight I missed. So I went to American and got first class for A LOT cheaper than what I paid all together for this flight. Waste of time, money and just a big disappointment all around. Will NEVER fly frontier again!"
Cons: "The Frontier flight was a rip-off. I was charged for a seat and for carry-on luggage which should have been included in the advertised price. I will not fly Frontier again."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled with little effort to compensate for it."
Cons: "Hidden bag fees. Why wasn't I informed while picking up my ticket? flight attendants were absolutely rude. You have to pay for every common accomodation like coffee or soda and having a single carry on!"
Cons: "Paying $30 each way per carry-on is ridiculous. so you save $50 on the ticket by flying Frontier, but then you are charged for every bag you bring with you. Only water or coffee was offered for free, everything else you had to pay for! If you wanted to pick your seat you have to pay. If be scared in an emergency that they would make you pay for an oxygen mask. We will never fly on frontier again."
Pros: "After packing our bags and checking in online the night before we found one bag was over 50 lbs. Great lady on the phone helped us add a bag for $30 rather than excess fee of $75 and no fee for canvas shoulder carry-on of book and magazines. From there it was a smooth trip in both directions."
Cons: "The fact that you had to pay a fee for everything. I'm really surprised they didn't charge me for the air I was breathing. When it's all said and done that cheap airline ticket ain't so cheap. They even charge you $2.00 for a can soda. AGAIN NEVER AGAIN"
Cons: "Checking in at Atlanta was a complete nightmare. They are wildly disorganized and when you make checking luggage cheaper than carrying on luggage, you should really staff adequately to ensure flyers can get their luggage checked on time. On that note, charging for carry on luggage is ridiculous and I was not aware that was how this airline does things until I did online check in the day before my flight. I also saw them try to charge someone $60 to check a bag at the gate. Insane. Also, if you ever fly them, don't bother to pay yet another fee to pick your seat, I ended up getting assigned just fine seats both times when I left it to chance. Would not fly them again though."
Pros: "It was ok. Basic Airlines without alot of extras. Seats were ok. Staff was ok. I wasn't expecting much but a safe trip so I got what I paid for. Overall just a basic good experience."
Cons: "Charging for bags. But most arilines are doing this, so it was expected. I still put it in the dislike category though,"
Cons: "One n one half hr delay on take off from Atl to ny"
Cons: "$30 for Carry On. i get it. Business Model, low dollar fare, ...... Eventually (with carry on) same price as everyone else."
Pros: "I liked the price"
Cons: "Its overall a stripped down flight."
Pros: "The flights are inexpensive but you're paying for just the flight, and everything else costs extra. The seats are decent sized, but they're not the big and heavy seats used in most airlines. They are thick plastic seats with about an inch of padding on the front and they do not recline. The tables are not the full sized types found in other airlines either and are about the size of an iPad mini. This is not a flight I'd take for more than a few hours, but it is economical and very fair (there is no first class, just the option to pay a little more for a seat with a bit more leg room)"
Cons: "They charge for things that are standard everywhere else. You are allowed one carry on for free but it must be small enough to fit under the seat. A regular carry on suitcase 9x14x22 is $30 extra. Choosing a seat when checking in costs extra ($10-$35 depending on seat location). Even snacks and drinks are extra ($2 sodas, $3 for snacks, but there are several combos that will save a dollar or two)"
Pros: "I liked that the flight was only $38."
Cons: "Didn't like having to pay extra for a bag (not a huge deal though since the flight was so cheap). Return flight was delayed 2 hours. Tray tables are way too small."
Pros: "Exactly on time. Boarded smoothly. No problems. Good flight."
Cons: "Cramped. Stuck in row with non reclining seats. Best to avoid those. But the people in front of me didn't (or couldn't) recline either. Acceptable. Food and entertainment weren't "poor"; they just don't exist. Need an N/A rating on the scale."
Cons: "Doesn't have wifi"
Pros: "Everything was on time"
Cons: "I bought with several weeks my ticket and when I arrived to the airport I didn’t have a seat and they told me that they downgrade the plane and the solution that they will pay for my hotel room for a day and next day I’ll fly at 4. I was a very important meeting that they and couldn’t afford to lose one day un NYC. I bought in Jet Blue last minute ticket that cost me $us 370!"
Cons: "I didn't like that you pay for a carry on that is stupid when your flight is already $400"
Cons: "At least a coffee /water/ and a cool drink could have been provided. The yellow/black color seen in booking/check-in process sends CREEPS and CHEAPS, while the price is not at all cheaper than other air lines."
Pros: "The flight was pleasant. Departure and arrival right on time."
Cons: "I left my carry on bag at my departure gate by accident. When I asked the Spirit airline manager if I could get the money I paid for the carry on back. I was told the money was not reimbursable. What a rip off!"
Cons: "Everything, they made us wait 7 hours, I paid for my bag, though, they didn`t notify me on my ticket. Terrible."
Cons: "This airline charges you for even asking a question the worst airline out there I'm sopprize their still in bissnes stay clear and avoid major disappointment"
Cons: "The staff was rude from the gate to some of the flight attendants not all. Poor customer service skills. The 2 ladies at the gate let me stand there for 5 minutes and never asked what I needed. One finally came over rolled her eyes and told me I needed to sit down. I told her no because the flight was boarding and she told me standby needs to sit down and wait . However, I had a boarding pass and simply needed a seat assignment and when I said this she sucked her teeth and rolled her eyes again and took my boarding pass. Extremely rude. Inside an attendant proudly walked down the aisle saying "ugh what's wrong with you people and these phones these days." Then proceeded to get on the intercoms and say "I will have them take the plane back to the gate if you just can't be compliant." Were we on a school bus full of children going on a field trip? How about you explain the reasoning and importance behind needing to turn off cell phones and stop use and maybe you'll have more compliance than getting on the intercom and threatening the customers. I have never been on a flight like that and after my flight back home I never will again. Cheap flights or not it was just AWFUL."
Pros: "Our flight left NY at 2pm on 29th and due to weather issues was diverted to Kansas city instead of TX. Many other flights where also diverted, which all halted for few hours and left to final destination Dallas except for us. They made us sit in the flight from 5pm to 11pm and cancled the flight. No food was given , no water & there where kids on the flight who stayed hungry. Horrible service and staff had the worth attitude."
Cons: "The whole experience was horrible"
Cons: "There was turbulence throughout the flight. The pilots and the flight attendants announced that we should stay in our seats. People were in the aisles at all times. Several times they were thrown off balance. The fight attendants paid no attention to this they were so busy chit chatting in their area at the front of the plane. We were asked to stay in our seats for passenger safety. Total oblivion was exhibited. For this reason I will never fly on this airline again."
Pros: "I got where I wanted to go."
Cons: "With a baggage charge of $55 I will never fly Spirit again, and have told others to avoid it at all costs. The man behind me dug his knees into my back the whole trip; it seemed that the backs of the seats had no padding at all."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled. They couldn't offer an alternative flight on the same day or even the next. The customer service rep had limited English proficiency, which made it hard to understand why the flight was cancelled in the first place. I had to book a flight on another airline to make it to Detroit one day late. I was not offered a travel voucher to compensate for the extreme inconvenience."
Pros: "NOTHING they have horrible customer service. My fiancé flight was canceled we were meeting at myrtle beach which left me stranded. They would not accommodate him on the earliest flight to myrtle beach or would they accommodate me to move my flight earlier"
Cons: "Everything was HORRIBLE will NEVER FLY SPIRIT AGAIN THEY SHOULD BE CLOSED DOWN"
Cons: "$55 carry-on fee and $50 checked bag fee are preposterous and negate Spirit's 'competitive' fare. This is not communicated until you get to the airport and check in. Delayed for 4.5 hours and lied to about cause of delay. Discrepancy between what boarding agent said and what customer service said. Threatened by boarding agent that flight would be cancelled if passengers didn't board quickly despite presence of infants and infirmed. Confusing announcements by boarding agents who would mix up information for up to four different flights scheduled for departure from same gate. First and last time I fly Spirit. Apparently this review process is pointless since Spirit can opt not to post if it so chooses. Pathetic business practice on par for a pathetic airline. Will engage in a social media campaign against this airline."
Cons: "50$ for one bag is hilarious"
Cons: "Everything is over priced even for an airline. To pay for snacks and drinks, even water. That's ridiculous."
Cons: "Never again. Charged too much for baggage. Gate changed at last minute. Sat on hot airplane for 1/2 hour. Waited 1/2 for baggage to come out. Not worth cheap fare. They make up the cost in baggage fees and water on the airplane. You have to buy water!"
Cons: "6:30 AM Flight from LGA to FLL delayed 4 times every 2 hours. Finally Cancelled after I had been at airport 7 hours. Spirit said mechanical problems. Several passengers heard the crew say that the company was aware of problems the night before. Too cheap to hire outside contractors to start the job sooner. I never fly them again."
Pros: "Good Price for Direct Roundtrip flights"
Cons: "All the pestering about the Spirit Master Card"
Pros: "Price is right/ on time/ they have everything down to a science"
Cons: "I don't know if I would use this airline if I was going on a long trip but short ones are great."
Pros: "Strangely, even though the seats did not recline, they were reasonably comfotable"
Cons: "Check in on line - I could not get seat assignments or check a carry on. $55 / carry on is over the top. Communication of flights, both of which were late, was bad. My boss told me "I told you so!" She was right = I wont fly Spirit again."
Cons: "Cancelled with only 2 hours prior notice. Although I got a refund but no way I could buy another ticket to go to Chicago to catch the connecting flight to Hong Kong. I ended up buying a new ticket directly from New York to Hong Kong, which cost me $800."
Cons: "They didn't give us seats and no other choice I lost all my plans"
Pros: "Nothing was good"
Cons: "I got to the airport one hour before the flight and they told me I missed it. There were more than 20 people waiting to resolve their special cases, like myself. I'll never NEVER ride spirit airl any more."
Cons: "The jet was too flexible.A little scary the Bag trick was not cool, my 113 $ flight cost 160.$ oops sorry mr consumer .!"
Cons: "Horrible in flight service"
Pros: "My first and last time flying with Spirit, for a multiple of reasons. First of, the flight was delayed over two hours, the gate agents were clueless as to why and how long it would be. Second, the flights attendants were unprofessional. I'm trying to use the bathroom in the back of the plane, but the door wouldn't open all the way because the flight attendant was sitting down, as she saw me struggle to squeeze in, she wouldn't bother to get up. Overall, it's and experience I never want to endure again."
Pros: "It was cheap"
Cons: "JUST KIDDING IT WASNT. AND IT WAS A HEADACHE"
Cons: "Did not buy a seat, along with 6 others who didn't and none of us got on our scheduled flight. First and last time I'll be flying spirit."
Pros: "The flight attendants"
Cons: "The delay in leaving, and the wait to get to the gate when we arrived."
Cons: "We were charged a high price for our luggage and charged to select our seats. The boarding process was poor. The gate was drab and the seats were set up in a way that made boarding a bit unruly. The seats did not recline and there was no wifi."
Cons: "The hidden baggage fee is excessive and absolutely unacceptable. $55 for a CARRY ON is ridiculous. The seats are shockingly thin and incredibly small. I was only on the plane for an hour and a half and that was enough for my whole body to be in pain. The fact that they charge you for a drink on the plane (even water) should be illegal. There was no food or entertainment to speak of. The whole airline is an absolute scam and a total rip off. I will never fly with spirit again."
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "Unorganized, delayed on both flights, charged for carry-on bags"
Cons: "Timeliness, comfort, food, additional fees"
Pros: "Easy, smooth ride. On time and the flight attendants were very nice"
Pros: "The extra and add ons were crazy and not the value we had anticipated or expected"
Cons: "Extras and add-ons"
Pros: "The staff"
Cons: "No space"
Pros: "The flight was delayed 5 hours. Spirit worst airline ever."
Pros: "They should have free refreshment also price for luggage is pricey over the phone they tell you one thing when you get there it's different price seats are small I felt like I was in a sardine can"
Cons: "paying $50 each way for a bag. thought I was getting a good deal on the round trip ticket from NY to Myrtle beach. not so much."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing because the flight was cancelled and I had to book with another airline."
Cons: "Hello my name is Keith Smith and I flew on spirit airlines on Februray 26 and when I got to LGA for my departing flight I was not notify by the airline before arriving to the airport that my flight was cancelled. I had to spend an additional $350 on a ticket to get to my destination. Spirit is a horrible airline and I will never book with them again in life"
Pros: "I arrived safely."
Cons: "Everything else. Zero customer service. No explanation as to why my flight was so delayed, no one took the time to genuinely apologize for wasting everyone's time. Staff seemed uninterested and didn't offer any consolation to their patrons. Even when on the plane, flight attendants didn't even offer complimentary water. Any other airline I have ever been on, flight attendants would try to appease patrons by offering beverages, snacks, vouchers. No such service was offered. Two patrons actually got in a heated argument while on the plane because everyone on the plane was extremely agitated. Every adult on the plane was consuming alcohol on the flight as a means to cope with how inconvenienced they were. Flight attendants did not even offer to interject. Everyone left the flight angry and promising themselves that they would never fly Spirit again. I hate knowing that I have to return to NYC via Spirit. Went to customer service and was given an email address so I could complain. I have never been treated this way before where even customer service doesn't offer anything but a disingenuous apology. I feel like even the staff members don't want to work for Spirit. I will never fly Spirit again. Worst flying experience I have ever had."
Pros: "Nothing except that I arrived safely"
Cons: "Everything. Terrible awful airlines."
Cons: "They cancelled my flight for no reason and wouldn't rebook to another airline. I had to spend double the money to levee the same day. Never taking them again"
Pros: "The cabin crew was very friendly and polite. The flight took off on time, and landed early. Kudos!!"
Cons: "The seats are too narrow."
Cons: "Our direct flight from NYC to Fort Laud was canceled due to inclement weather in the Midwest. They then rebooked the flight for the following day: leaving at 830a and arriving at 4p with a 2.5 hour layover in Detroit (the very location of the storm which caused the cancelation!). Needless to say, we did not take that flight, and we will avoid Spirit altogether in the future."
Cons: "Cancelled flight and did not even apologize! They were quick to refund you."
Pros: "Traveling time"
Cons: "The ground crew was not very helpful or nice about requesting a change of seats for my two children who were under age."
