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."
Cons: "The crew"
Pros: "The boarding process was smooth ."
Cons: "The cleanliness of the seat and tray area."
Cons: "Please reduce your delays - again we took off with more than an hour delay and by definition you are responsible of that disagreement, you are the company I am paying for the service...."
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."
Cons: "Having to go through Kayak wasn’t helpful. I wasn’t kept informed of the flight and getting to my flight schedule was difficult. Going through the website was also frustrating and confirming flights was difficult."
Pros: "The crew was nice and did the best they could"
Cons: "The flight was late, extremely turbulent, and was spent mostly under 10k feet, so wifi was available for only a very short time"
Pros: "In-flight entertainment, speed of flight"
Pros: "Crews were great."
Cons: "Flight delays coming and going. Happens a lot with Delta."
Pros: "Getting off the flight was the best!"
Cons: "The persons who barfed and delayed take off was a not great. Cramped"
Pros: "We landed"
Cons: "They need to raise the temp on these planes. Give free blankets or put a warning on the boarding pass saying that you will freeze."
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: "The fact my flight was delayed three times...First delta said it was technical(mechanical) issues then sis it was the weather then said it was mechanical issues due to the weather. There were no compensation of the inconvenience it cause the customers."
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"
Pros: "Nice flight attendant. The woman who checked in my dog and my bag was really nice too. On time, efficient, and clean."
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: "great service and a quick flight"
Pros: "Wheeler chair service is available"
Cons: "Gate changed in the last minute and non-English speaking wheeler chair customer (my 89 years old mother) was left at the old gate by their wheeler chair services and no agent at the gate knew about her. Both round trip flights! This is totally NOT acceptable. She could have been lost and with no ability to help herself and miss the flights. It was lucky that she found Chinese speaking customers to help her."
Pros: "Flight attendant had nice attitude."
Cons: "I asked for an aisle seat to provide relief to my right leg. I was given an aisle on my left. This was compounded by sitting next to a man so large that part of my space was taken, and this was Delta Comfort. Had I been given the requested seat, I would not have the sore neck and back I now have from leaning for 2 hours."
Pros: "Is my wife and I first time going with the baby (stroller) we thought it as going to be a nightmare but we had a easy experience"
Pros: "The only positive of this leg is that it was less infuriating than the flight from RDU to Boston"
Cons: "Delta's partnership with Go Jet seriously compromises the legacy carrier's reputation. I am a Delta fan - although flexible enough to use other choices when necessary. I will no longer fly a Go Jet operated leg when other choices are available. For my trips to Boston, that means Jet Blue. Sorry Delta. I'll see you back on a true Delta route."
Cons: "The delay on the runway"
Pros: "The tv on the back of the headrest was great."
Cons: "Too much chatter over the intercom."
Cons: "Reservation. Checkin. Seating. Flight."
Cons: "Cramped, uncomfortable tin can of an airplane. Barely tolerable for even an hour’s flight."
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."
Pros: "Crew was very accommodating and friendly."
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"
Pros: "USB and AC power supplied in-seat is incredibly nice feature."
Cons: "1 of the 3 bags we checked was forgotten at JFK airport. Since we had a 5 hour layover, Delta had ample time to get the bag on the plane."
Pros: "Flight was fast and direct."
Cons: "Flight left 45 minutes late because the crew wasn't there."
Pros: "I loved getting an email with my baggage claim number."
Cons: "The food was the same snack they give in the evening and afternoon, even though it was morning- pretzel, peanuts, or cookies."
Pros: "flight itself was fine"
Cons: "When we arrived in LGA, the luggage conveyor belt was broken and luggage was piled up and driven to another terminal. As a result half of our luggage did not arrive on our flight but arrived on subsequent flight. However, one bag was nowhere to be found and Delta staff could not clarify the issue. They did find it next day and delivered to the FLL airport, but we had to get a cab and go to the airport to pick-up as we could not take a chance of it not making it to us before the cruise departure. I am extremely disappointed"
Pros: "i didn't get on the plane"
Cons: "flight was delayed, so i would have missed connection in NYC. Delta agent said she could get me to boston the next day, in the afternoon. i drove my rental car to boston that night, instead of flying"
Cons: "Delayed flight for 6 hrs. and acts like it is just business as usual, perhaps it is for Delta"
Pros: "Flight delayed for four hours, then delayed another hour before we left. Delta won't let you pick your seats, so although we were 3rd in line at the gate, they put my family of four at the rear of the plane. I will never fly Delta again."
Pros: "The NYC based crew was young, exciting, and highly professional. I have avoided Delta for many years for long out-of-date reasons. I'm pleased to say that my experience on this flight has changed my perception. I won't avoid a Delta flight in the future."
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: "Fast boarding and service."
Cons: "Food mediocre, coffee bitter like pots weren't cleaned, frigid cabin temperatures while in flight."
Cons: "They lost my duffle bag, and when they found it, my bag was in a whole different state, and once I finally received my duffle bag my items were wet and damaged."
Pros: "First time flying DELTA and to New York City. Really liked flying into Marine Terminal for it's smallness and easiness to collect luggage and catch a taxi."
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: "American Airlines seemed to have upgraded their airplanes. The seats, which were abominable in the past, were comfortable. They also had in cabin movies. I used to prefer Jet Blue or any other airline, just taking AA for the price. Now, if all the airplanes are updated, they are on par with any airline."
Pros: "Lovely crew!"
Cons: "The landing was rough!"
Cons: "Seat was very hard and uncomfortable"
Cons: "More options when flights are delayed. I understand that some things can’t be controlled but 3hrs with limited to no options is unacceptable. And boarding the flight, it’s always unorganized. A more organized line should be formed. When the groups are called to board the plane."
Pros: "Friendliness of crew"
Cons: "Offered more of an incentive for the inconvenience"
Pros: "Arrived at destination safely."
Cons: "Erratic flight info- first it was on time, then 45 minutes late, then 5 minutes late. Plane had crumbs and peanuts all over the floor when we boarded. Flight was very turbulent."
Cons: "I would blame this on myself but had a second incident with CheapoAir. The date was wrong and neither cheapoAir NOR AA would help me to fix it without extravagant fees. Ended up eating the ticket."
Pros: "No delays"
Pros: "The flight attendants were very nice"
Cons: "I had a training that I was leading in Indianapolis and in Charlotte we had no pilot so we waited which made us late Then finally a pilot showed up and the we boarded fast but then we all sat on the plane for another 30 minutes which made me super late for my training"
Pros: "Great flight. Great staff. Nice landing"
Pros: "on time"
Cons: "I have been flying for over 40 years and this American flight is the worst SNAFU I have ever experienced. Rerouted for refuling 30+ minute waits for gates to open, 1+ hour waits for takeoff. Not all of it was weather related. Even the flight attendant is disgusted."
Pros: "It was incident free."
Cons: "I can't comment on food. I didn't get any."
Pros: "The Pilot still got us here on time, even though we took off late"
Cons: "The flight attendant in my section was sharp & cranky. We never recieved snacks."
Pros: "The boarding process was great and speedy. They had us all on the plane and we were pushing back prior to the take off time because they already had us all on board. The flight was smooth, and we landed in Charlotte early. Can’t beat that!"
Cons: "The crew felt a bit standoffish and I felt like I couldn’t have asked them something if I wanted it, which, thankfully I didn’t."
Pros: "The crew was professional as always. My flight was delayed due to a storm near the Caribbean, which is fine because I would rather fly safe and arrive alive. My snack was tea and pretzels, which is fine because I enjoyed The Greatest Showman with sexy Hugh Jackman."
Cons: "I don't blame the airline for unruly passengers or weather conditions. When traveling you have to leave room for error or unforeseen circumstances. If you don't like the airline or passengers you can charter a private jet :)"
Cons: "Why can't the crews in in LGA communicate with the passengers during the boarding process like at other airports so that it won't be a mad mob press to get on the plane. The gate agent using the PA didn't or couldn't enunciate, and folks just 15 feet away were asking what she said."
Pros: "We had two medical emergency on board so the flight attendant took care of them really well"
Cons: "They check in my hand carry my whole point of carrying is not to be bother with claing my luggage"
Pros: "The flight attendant from Pensacola having a good sense of humor."
Cons: "Checking my bag when there was plenty of overhead cabin space"
Pros: "No complaints!"
Pros: "My flight to Frankfurt was a disaster. Delays at LGA caused me to miss the connection. Two very nice AA customer service phone staff attempted to help by booking me on a Lufthansa/United flight out of JFK that same evening. HOWEVER, I got to JFK only to discover I had NOT been ticketed. A lengthy call to AA resulted a a lame apology -“we don’t do that” they claimed, but the had previously! And had booked me, so what the heck was this??? I’m still fuming!"
Cons: "Lies! They rebooked me on a Lufthansa flight out of JFK and I got there only to discover “they had made a mistake.” Utter garbage excuses."
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: "Bad weather came in n I was rerouted on Time"
Cons: "7 hours late with only 3-4 updates the whole time."
Cons: "The plane supposedly was running out of fuel, which I've never heard of such thing. So we had to go down 20mns before reaching Charlotte to a nearby airport to get fueled up and then went back in the air. The whole ordeal made me miss my connection flight to Barcelona! And I wasn't able to get on a flight until the next day. To make matters worse I had to flight back to New York to catch the flight to Barcelona! Unbelievable. I was beyond disappointed. I chose American Airlines for a reason, a good one at that. Yet this happened."
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."
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."
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."
Pros: "Planes boarded on time"
Cons: "Long wait on runway before take off"
Pros: "Boarded quickly. Seats were comfortable. Friendly flight attendants. It was a quick flight, no entertainment used. Only had a cookie and water for food. Don't know about the other things."
Pros: "The flight was fast and mostly smooth, you can't control turbulence. The flight attendants were very friendly. Turned out to be a great trip."
Cons: "Nothing was bad overall. It was a very nice flight"
Pros: "The crew was super friendly and got lots to eat. Flight was pretty much on time."
Pros: "Flights attendants were super friendly and the plane was very clean"
Cons: "seats are uncomfortable"
Pros: "The planes and staff were excellent!!!"
Cons: "Hated the layovers!!!"
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: "As somewhat experienced travelers, we know to keep carry on luggage as tight as possible. I was pleasantly suprised to see that overhead bins were not full! We didn't have seats next to each other initially, but the gate agent put us in the exit row with extra legroom!"
Cons: "Nothing comes to mind."
Cons: "The first class flight attendants were VERY RUDE to the passengers getting on the plane, especially the male flight attendant. While serving drinks, instead of saying things like "pardon me", they would say "move" (as was said directly to me) and get out of the way" (as I herd him say to another passinger). Very disrespectful way to treat a person, let alone a paying customer! Btw...I am a middle class 5' 11" tall college educated male."
Pros: "My trip was awesome and very easy."
Pros: "This time every thing excellent"
Pros: "The younger male crew staff was good Female staff poor Plane itself was poor . Seat Tray kept unlocking as latch old and faulty Connection was good although airport shuttle to gate uncomfortable due to navigate stairs with carry on"
Cons: "For one of the premier air company's. They don't know what there doing. Old planes. Super hot. Dirty airplane."
Pros: "I reached my destination safely"
Cons: "The 5 hour delay!!"
Cons: "The flight was delayed and we spent about an hour just sitting in the plane before we took off. When I expressed concerns aboit making my connecting flight to the front desk representative she stated she didn't have time to help me as she had a plane to board. It was another 20 minutes before she even began to board anyone. She was very abrupt and rude. I had to call AA while sitting on the tarmac to get rebooked which was a more positive experience."
Pros: "The service was excellent Very cleaning airplane The people the travel was super good especially the children."
Pros: "Rosa was great at handeling a pushy, borderline rude customer. I couldn't handle that kind of stressful job."
Cons: "Anticipating that I wasn't going to be able to get on the standby after missing the connection from Boston due to equipment failure. I had a shuttle booked in Charlotte and may have missed that too. It was already a 12 hr. travel day and I was dreading it being longer."
Pros: "I slept."
Cons: "The crew was overall terrible. For someone who also works in customer service, I was actually appalled at the behavior of the AA crew/staff. The flight attendants were ok, but the boarding crew was terrible and unbelievably unhelpful. I asked a staff member at check in if i needed to check my bag and he seemed really annoyed by my question, and refused to be of any help. Wow! He was so unbelievably rude. I ended up paying $25 to check a bag I didn't need to check. I was so disappointed. In the future, I think I will try to avoid flying AA."
Cons: "The AA employee at the counter in Batoj Rouge informed me that I would miss my connection at Charlotte Airport due to a delayed in the incoming flight. Hebgave me the option to flight the next day or flight the same day, and after a 2 hour delay flight to Charlotte where I would be provided a hotel room and a meal for the night. I asked several times if that information was confirmed and he repeatedly said yes. At my arrival at Charlotte Airport (near midnight) every AA employee said that they did NOT have any more hotels. It was obvious that everything was a staged lie since over 100 people had to spend the night in one of the the terminals where we were provided a pillow and a blanket. I am terribly disappointed for the lack of transparency in AA. I was told my some friends that they also have had experiences like that at the same Charlotte Airport. You have damage once again your reputation and from no own in will expect THE WORST from AA."
Cons: "It's hard to rate a flight that didn't happen"
Pros: "I just love taking another plane to Washington D.C. and spending the night at the airport because the airline wouldn't compensate me with a hotel and a proper flight back home like they promised they would."
Cons: "There wasn't a flight"
Pros: "Got from point a to point b"
Cons: "30-40 minute delay to board, charge for drinks, snack, carry on, and checked luggage."
Cons: "Arrived 25 minutes prior to the flight, after checking in to hours before the flight. No electronic ticket available and no printers available at frontier ticket counter. No front tier personnel available. No front tier electronic kiosk to print tickets. Missed my flight because I could not get through security. Frontier need to upgrade their customer service at Providence TE Green Airport. It reads poorly and I will not fly frontier again"
Cons: "being nickle and dimed for every little convenience, checked bag, carry on bag, seat selection, etc. What I though was a good deal ticket turned out to be way more expensive than I imagined."
Pros: "Crew was pleasant enough."
Cons: "Both of my flights were delayed. We had to get off the plane on both ends before we were allowed to reboard. I missed a long awaited dinner reservation with my husband at one end and was several hours late arriving at my final destination. Mechanical issues on both planes doesn't inspire a lot of confidence. My family and I will not fly Frontier again."
Cons: "carry-on $30?! check in luggage $40?! ridiculous."
Pros: "Despite technical issues and a delay in boarding, they got us to the destination on time. Polite and helpful crew."
Cons: "Why do passengers have to take their luggage themselves to another conveyor belt after checking it in at LGA?"
Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful!"
Cons: "I thought it was kind of cheap that your company doesn't offer complimentary beverages or food anymore. I also think that the tray tables in my plane specifically seemed a lot smaller than I remember and that seemed kind of cheap to me."
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."
Pros: "Flight was reasonably priced. Flight options were great"
Cons: "Rates are misleading. Once you add in the higher baggage fee, the seat fees (no free seats), the flight is priced the same if not higher than other airlines but the real difference is in all of this is customer service. The lead flight attendant on the my flight was extremely rude and unresponsive. My mother had a wheelchair assist her to the gate for our departing flight in Orlando. This was arranged by the ticket counter. Apparently, Frontier screwed up and did not arrange for a wheelchair to meet us at the gate in Charlotte. When we mentioned this to the lead flight attendant, he said we would need to go and find one ourselves. I asked if he could call the gate and asked them to bring one so I wouldn't have to leave my elderly mother, he said, "no". I asked again and explained that I didn't want to leave my mother. This time he rolled his eyes at me and said, it wasn't his problem. Really? This is precisely the reason I will not take Frontier again. Please look into training your people better or your hiring process. Cheap flight do not address this issue."
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."
Cons: "I don't like the way price of the ticket got dropped"
Cons: "No es posible que haya atrasos en los vuelos"
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!"
Cons: "Having to pay all the extra fees for a checked bag and carry on luggage."
Cons: "Longest security line I have ever seen and I travel in a lot of countries all over the world that have outrageous security lines. Had an hour and a half to get through security and still missed the flight. Nothing could be done because the next flight was in 3 days."
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."
Pros: "The chairs are spacious, the staff is really friendly the prices are cheap"
Cons: "Paying for a carry 40 EACH trip on i thought was a little too much also they dont have any tv on the plane, didnt have enough beverages when i asked them... Would i recommend them again? Maybe . You end up paying the same as if you were flying with jetblue and delta... So"
Pros: "I got there in one piece"
Cons: "This airline is terrible - the seats are supremely uncomfortable and they charge for everything - even to carry on a bag! I didn't know that before this trip, but I will never fly Frontier Airlines again"
Pros: "the fare was the only thing that was good"
Cons: "You misrepresent your airline. Not cheap, no perks, no frills. I choose not to use your airline. I had to pay for a small carry on. Never had this with any other airline!"
Pros: "The reasonable ticket price."
Cons: "Flight was really late."
Cons: "Seats did not recline."
Cons: "When I checked in for my flight, the website said I would be three hours delayed. Later in the afternoon I just happened to check my flight status again and my flight time had been pushed forward causing me to rush out the door with less than one hour to make my flight. I barely made the flight but once I was seated we were delayed again. I did appreciate that we were given updates on why we were delayed however."
Pros: "Only thing i liked is That we didnt crash"
Cons: "-$40 fee for personal bag that was slightly over regulation -one hour delay PLUS 2 hours stuck on runway in the airplane without access to water nor could we stand up out of our chairs for bathroom -finally when they were serving food and beverage only paying passengers had first access to food and water even if the crew had to walk all the way to the back and then back to the front to serve and charge them, it took about 45 minutes until they started serving water (of which the second cup of water they needed to charge for supposedly although we got "lucky" and they gave us a free second little glass of water)"
Cons: "Surprise $60 fee at the gate for a carryon. Wtf, people."
Pros: "The quality of the treatment received by the air staff was awesome."
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"
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: "Quick boarding, left pretty close to on time."
Cons: "Was shocked to discover while getting my boarding pass that I have to pay $40 EACH WAY for a having a standard size carry on. If I'd known that I would have gone with the other airline and paid just as much -- but gotten at least a free drink and seat that reclines."
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: "They don't comply with thier own policies. Thier website says a carry on bag and a personal item (such as a laptop bag) is allowed free of charge. When i reach their with a very tiny suitcase and a laptop bag, the front end staff tells me I am fine and can go ahead with the sevurity line. But when I reach at the gate and just as I am about to enter the flight a frontier employee snatches my bording pass and says that I have to pay $60 for my one item, as only one item is allowed. And she was so rude that she wouldn't listen to anything. Says the gate closes in 3mins if you wanna get in this flight pay $60 or else she wont let me in. I had no choice other than to pay. This was through kayak. I would request kayak to not keep any kinda relation qith such ripoff fraud companies, if they don't want bunch of bad reviews them self. Frontier has already millions of bad reviews and one more added from my side just now. I would never ever travel frontier again. N by the way the flight sucked as well."
Pros: "Liked how smooth and easy it was and the crew was funny and great."
Cons: "Cheap price equals uncomfortable seat and no entertainment. Paying for a carry on is crazy."
Pros: "Comfortable seat; polite crew"
Cons: "Delayed flight"
Pros: "Leg room ok"
Cons: "Flight delayed 6 hours Flight staff not friendly Charge you for everything imaginable Their next step is likely charging for the bathroom Not helpful on phone either Uncomfortable seats (back hurt and I'm a young guy) Avoid at all costs"
Pros: "I usually don't fly frontier and was reminded why. The planes don't have seat rows listed on them and once you get to your seat, they're terribly uncomfortable. I guess the price is right to fly but after adding 40 dollars for a carry on item, what I paid doesn't look as good. silly to me that frontier can't afford to offer a free drink as well."
Pros: "Couldn't believe that I had to pay for carry on. Totally misleading the customer. Would never fly Frontier again. To"
Pros: "The contact points I had at each step were very friendly. Out welcome to Charlotte from the flight attendant warmed me with joy on a joyous holiday. Yet, I was not informed of the fee for carryon luggage moments before boarding. It was a shared experience a passenger checking in next to me. It was a great flight."
Pros: "Firendly crew"
Cons: "The seats are so small and close together that my 6'3" self acutally does not fit in them. There are no headrests. You can even lean forward on your tray table bc the seat in front is too close and the tray table in 6 inches long and 4 inches wide. A middle seat on a Frontier flight is the worst thing going in travel right now."
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."
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: "I am still on the flight writing this review. I hope this explains everything."
Pros: "My flight took off on time no luggage nor carry on but was surprise when found out frontier would charge carry on. Flight was cheap, crews were fine. We arrived half hour earlier then schedule which was great only to find out they couldn't open the plane's door so had to wait for 20 minutes before it opened. All and all I would rate 4 stars and will give another try."
Pros: "I liked the fact that I didn't die on the way to my destination..."
Cons: "That airline is a rip off! You mind as we'll fly Delta... You're paying the same price at the end of the day. That charge for you to breathe."
Pros: "Seats are rather comfortable for the price."
Cons: "People putting and taking carry on bags were blocking boarding and leaving."
Pros: "The crew was the only nice feature of this airline."
Cons: "The plane was delayed for over an hour with no explanation. I received an email two days later informing me that my flight was going to be delayed. I was charged $50 for seats that were given for free to two other passengers next to me. The plane was narrow and uncomfortable. I am a small framed female and I barely fit comfortably in the only reclining seats of the plane. I attempted to call the airline upon reaching my destination in Miami, when I asked the customer service representative for a supervisor because I had a complaint, she hung up the phone on me. So I am glad that I received this email so that I can tell you what a poor airline you are, and to inform you that I will be going on multiple social media sites to further complain about you. I rather walk to another state than fly Frontier again!!!! Worst flight experience. Would not recommend this airline to anyone."
Pros: "Crew kept us informed. Flight landed on time. No unexpected surprises."
Pros: "The Spirit people are nice. It would be better if they were competent."
Cons: "Once the flight was 45 minutes late taking off, a series of poorly-executed rebookings led to a 7-hour delay. Spirit acted like massive problems were par for the course."
Cons: "I was charged $55:00 for a little carryon bag. The seats were extremely close.I was informed that I had to remain in my seat until someone else exited the front rest room.I enquired about those at the back and was informed that two carts were in the way. I need my $55:00 refund."
Cons: "I received a notification that my flight was delayed. I arrive at the airport and I cannot use the check in kiosk because I’m too late and no employees are there to help me causing me to miss my flight!!"
Pros: "Captain announcements both friendly and professional"
Cons: "Obnoxious charging for everything. Not even TAP water offered for free, which is "over the line.""
Pros: "I got a seat by the emergency exit "for free" otherwise i had to pay extra for my seat. We pay a lot of money to fly,and i feel airlines nowadays give you less,and demand more money from us.its ridiculous..if i pay for my plane ticket,i shouldn't pay extra for a freaking seat."
Pros: "We arrived before the scheduled time."
Cons: "There were no complimentary snacks, no free carry-ons and the seat was the worst thing, so uncomfortable."
Pros: "When I called spirit on the phone they told me that I could take up a small suit case and they gave me the diemention so I talk 2 small suitcases When u got to the airport they told me that each suitcase will cost me $50.00 So told the staff I could have brought 1 suitcase and payed only 1 time $50.00 they said that they can't help me By paying all thease xtra charges and paying for snacks and drinks it does not pay to fly with them rather take any airline for a couple off dollars more and fly like a normal person with out all these extras"
Cons: "Flight got canceled. Attendants were very rude"
Cons: "luggage fee: excessive + not informed of prior to check-in fee to change flight was $120; again excessive (a fee is acceptable, but it seems at this point that spirit just wants to rip off customers) desk did not take cash; required pre-paid debit cards which charge $5.00 service at the desk was appalling"
Pros: "overall travel experience"
Cons: "paying for snacks/drinks"
Pros: "Spirit Airlines fools folks with low fares and then gouges wallets with baggage fees. I was disappointed with the SA representative at LGA who was rude and inflexible when I realized that I had not printed out my boarding pass. He made me go to the back of the line after waiting through a long, pre-holiday check in line. Enforcing the rules is one thing, but he was rude and unkind. Flight was left/arrived on time."
Pros: "They spent more time trying to sell their credit card than they did asking about anything else. The woman behind me was choking and they wouldn't give her a glass of water, but they would sell her one. Her daughter in a different section of the plane had to pay for water since her mother didn't have a credit card."
Cons: "If anyone thinks Spirit is a good deal, hopfully you are flying without luggage and do not need water during your flight."
Pros: "I like that they treated us with respect and where very friendly staff"
Cons: "There was nothing to not like"
Pros: "Everything was easily done online, so when I arrived at the airport I just have to hand my bag to the ticket agent which took 2 minutes. Flight boarding was explained and preformed in a orderly fashion. Plane was brand new! Easy process from start to finish..."
Cons: "No wifi, snack or drink! I understand the price is for the slogan "ass and gas" but come on. Free glass of bottled water to hydrate just looks classy and caring!"
Cons: "Half our luggage didn't arrive"
Cons: "Not food or snack"
Pros: "I would only use Spirit Airlines for 1 day / weekend trips because of the baggage restrictions. And I would only use it so long as I'm cheap. Otherwise, this is the worst airline on the market."
Pros: "the only thing I liked were the passengers"
Cons: "Everything else was terrible! Disorganized gate, disorganized check in, we left 5 hours late and then we were told the staff needed to be changed for this domestic flight, they did not have a sticker on the plane registered so they had to fill out paperwork for an hour after we were delayed and sitting on the plane, there were only two hosts working the beverage service and they only came around one time until the end of the flight to collect trash. It was very crammed and I would never take a Spirit flight again!"
Cons: "the worker saw me with terrible face and even they didn't explain me why my flight was canceled and they didn't help me anything . what they told me are just two things. refund or get another flight with another time .! . absoutely i did refund ."
Cons: "I understand if the flight is cancelled due to weather conditions, but we were able to get on another flight at the exact same time to the exact same destination, just through another airline. In addition, prior to my cancelled flight I barely received any emails letting me know of the status change and received NO phone text message. Spirit should text every person if a flight is cancelled. Lastly, it has now been 6 full days and no one has reached out about my refund. I requested it at the airport but have not received anything in the mail or via phone call. Disappointing customer service and horrible management."
Cons: "Had no idea that Spirit was the king of nothing included. Will never fly them again"
Pros: "Price of ticketmultiple"
Cons: "Multiple delays"
Cons: "I could not take the trip."
Cons: "Delayed 3 times, hidden fees, delayed 45 minutes bags at carousel"
Cons: "It was cancelled for no reason. I had to purchase a last minute flight that was twice as expensive, and spent the night outside security at LaGuardia. It was rough. Thanks, Spirit!"
Pros: "the price and the speed. the rumor was if you buy spirit air they will overbook you and kick you to the curb, - buy a seat. even the 15 or 20 dollar upgrade. can't help if your flight is cancelled but you get the idea. also they got us there fast... early arrivals on both flights"
Cons: "If you want amenities they will cost you as much as another airline and you will ride more comfortably, flight attendants need a little cheering up - very morose and brooding. the chart has a list of beers - I wanted a beer - but when I ordered a beer - all they had was bud an bud light - meh! so i said i would just drink water and he walked away. Yay great customer service! - glad the flight arrived early so I could buy a water when I landed!"
Pros: "The flight was on time and had no issues in that arena."
Cons: "I was shocked enough that it was 52$ for a checked bag, but 55$ even for a carry on??? Ridiculous. 9$ to have your seats next to someone? I thought they'd charge us for ice in our drinks or toilet paper in the lavatory next... Seats were in poor condition. My tray table was broken, fabric and seat covering were ripped off, and my boyfriends arm rest was broken as well. No leg room. Very uncomfortable."
Pros: "good flight, no sudden changes, no delays, got there on time and safe!"
Cons: "lots of hidden costs with spirit."
Cons: "My bag was 2 inches over the limit and I had to pay 100 dollars. Since they have different standards then every other airline, the should advertise better their carry on requirements. It felt like they were price gouging us. I will never fly spirit again because I felt decieved"
Cons: "My disappointment with Spirit started the moment they charged me $50 for my checked bag and $55 for my carry on. That's a whole lot of money in my opinion just for you to handle my bags!!!!! Not to mention the big airlines don't charge for a carry on and they only charge $25 for a checked bag. It's such a scam that they offer low flight prices only to jack up the price on luggage!!! Roundtrip, we spent $210 on luggage in addition to our ticket price!!!! I could have flown with one the big airlines and saved money after all that! Then...my return flight home was cancelled by Spirit due to weather, which I can totally appreciate happens. The issue was that the next available flight wasn't until 3 days LATER!!! Yes, you read that correctly. They offered no hotel accommodations, no sympathy, no other options and were completely unaccomodating outside of refunding me the price of a one-way ticket. Don't fly spirit unless you like being frustrated!! I will never ever fly them again."
Cons: "The pricing is horrific. The tickets were priced at $175 but once we paid for luggage and seating (mandatory), it was twice the price. I would have been better off flying a *normal* airline."
Cons: "HORRIBLE CUSTOMER SERVICE: ALL of the personnel we dealt with (from check-in, to security, to gate, to the crew) were rude and even aggressive. I've never felt such a lack of respect for customers from any airline, ever."
Cons: "This airline is a sham. I don't feel safe getting on a plane where they are simply seeing you as a number and how much money they can make of you. Literally everything has a fee, even carry on!"
Pros: "Friendly service and atmosphere Clean plane"
Cons: "It is obscene to charge $55 for a carry on luggage."
Pros: "Cost of course! Only reason I chose Spirit. It delivered in the only category I was interested in."
Cons: "You get what you pay for. No complaints."
Pros: "I won't flight with spirit afain"
Pros: "Nothing really. I arrived having no bags to check 35 mins before my flight departed. They would not let me on the flight at the desk to get my ticket. The airport was empty they said I would not be able to board. My grandma was dying, I was running to Florida. They claimed that they had closed the plane already and boarded it. that was a lie. They filled my seat standby. Therefore , I had to buy another ticket, wait at the airport for another 4hours. My grandma died. I WILL NEVER FLY SPIRIT AGAIN"
Pros: "Stewards were nice"
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable, didn't realize it would be so expensive to have a carry on/check a bag on spirit"
Cons: "Luggage fees was expansive"
Pros: "ground personal were polite competent"
Pros: "I travel more than 12 times a year and this happens to be the worst! EVER"
Cons: "Same comment as before. Nothing good Good to say"
Cons: "The extra fees for carry on and having to pay extra to pick your seat. Ends up being the same price as any other airline. Wasn't impressed and most likely will continue with my other airline."
Pros: "Low priced, friendly flight attendants, excellent pilot"
Cons: "$55 for one bag to check in absolutely sucks. Plus you don't get ANY free snacks or water."
Pros: "Nice take off and landing, very nice crew members"
Cons: "My carry on which I always take on other flights for free as it normally should be costed me $55!! And then the leg room was horrible like I felt squashed like I've never felt on any other plane ride and I fly pretty often and then I needed to pay for a can of coke??!!!! Never did I have to pay on any other airlines!!! So those are three main things spirit airlines should work on quickly!!!!!"
Cons: "I was there an hour before they said get in this line which had no attendant for ten minutes or so then he took his sweet time checking us in. There was one couple before me who had a problem with paying for checking in their luggage. Finally he asks me do U have anything to checkin Ivsaid no I was carting a small bag. Then he checks the screen and tells me I can't board the flight it is past 45 minutes which on their sticker say you must check in before. And their wasn't another flight I could get on till 10 pm. I had to be in Chicago that day so I had to buy a ticket from Southwest which cost me over $400 dollars. I want a refund from them for that flight. I think they were over booked."
Cons: "First time on spirit. More cramped than expected. Could not recline seat despite late flight"
Pros: "My flight was terrible! They were late, the customer service was the worst and I was very uncomfortable."
Cons: "Everything about the experience was repulsive!"
Cons: "Nasty shock to have to pay for a seat, thought I did that when I booked the flight Had to pay extra also for a carry on bag!!!"
