Cons: "Was told to get off plane after two hours with our luggage and then eventually got on plane and then waited at least a half hour to take off. On arrival at our destination we had to wait until a gate was available. We arrived almost four hours later. I had to cancel and rearrange my appointments. I don't even recall hearing I'm sorry for the inconvenience. Some kind of compensation should have been provided. Some kind of"
Pros: "Jetblue has consistently provided a great package. From efficiency, cleanliness and employee helpfulness. I trulyblu enjoy flying with them."
Cons: "Jetblue's concourse @ EWR could use a little love. But then again, I feel the entire airport could use some love...."
Pros: "Snacks, TV, wifi, leg room - what's not to like?"
Cons: "Bit of an older plane, but still pretty good considering!"
Pros: "The ladies at the gate were able to provide us with the best updates and tried their best to keep everyone calm and answer as many questions as possible and were constantly checking for updates. They also provided water and chips for us where no one else was trying t do anything at all."
Cons: "The flight was delayed several hours due to mechanical issues in the cockpit. Why they would think we would want to fly on that plane after the pilot refused the "fix" and left because he and his crew "timed out" because we waited so long. Flight was scheduled to depart at 8:26pm, we didn't depart until well after 1am. I got home at 6am! The ladies at the gate were awesome, however the "supervisor, Armondo Gonzalez Figueroa, only came to restate what had already been said by the gate agents, did not have ANY answers, did not offer any solutions, barely answered any questions, and stopped the gate agents from removing blankets of the plane to provide to the many many passengers who were waiting there freezing. The compensation offered was a joke. HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE!!!!!"
Pros: "JetBlue gave each passenger a $150 credit"
Cons: "The plane was delayed by 5.5 hours. We had a 6:45 pm reservation that didn't leave till 12:15 AM. We got home Monday morning at 4 am. Normally it wouldn't be "terrible" but my son was starting a new position that Monday. I learned my lesson, don't book the last flight out. I just don't understand why they didn't get new equipment and a new crew sooner. As it was they had to fly in a different plane in and flew up a crew from Ft. Lauderdale who flew us home to Ft. Lauderdale. I'm still not sure what caused this problem."
Pros: "Love the boarding, inflight service, entertainment and on time departure and arrival"
Cons: "Every thing was perfect. This kind of experience is rare in my frequent travels."
Pros: "My first time on Jet Blue and I was impressed. Clean comfortable seats with their own entertainment screens for only a two hour flight. After my nightmare with Air China this felt like heaven."
Cons: "The flight was delayed three hours due to mechanical issues. But better safe than dead."
Pros: "Jet blue has friendly staff"
Cons: "We departed 1.25 hrs late."
Pros: "From beginning to end iit was made a pleasant experience by the people working ar Jetblue."
Cons: "Now that's a hard question."
Cons: "The delays is just a hassle due that I am sick person. On August 5th my flight was suppose to leave at 2:30 am didn't leave until 6:41 am that's 4 hours and ten minutes waiting in a wheel chair with no food to eat. August 19th the same situation suppose to leave at 10:45 pm didn't leave until 1 am. The crew members were terrific them trying to keep us calm."
Pros: "Very easy flight, good service."
Cons: "Baggage claim was ridiculous. Had to wait a long time for our bags because for some reason they were loaded on with a flight from Boston that arrived after the Ft Myers flight. My suitcase finally showed up and had a large black streak down the front of it."
Pros: "Flight left on time and arrived early to destination."
Pros: "More options on the entertainment menu. Needed that for my longer flight I connected from. Great snack options and very courteous staff. I enjoyed their company out of all my flights that day!"
Cons: "I would like to see all TAP planes come with a standard entertainment option on the headrest in front of you with the advanced menu option of movies, games, radio, etc. and ensure all headphone jacks are operational. (This flight it wasn't working well)"
Pros: "Me encantó la gentileza de enviar correos electrónicos para mantenerme informada."
Cons: "Flight was delayed more than 6 hours and we missed the connection. The only alternative offered was the same flight 2 days later. To avoid similar risk we went to FLL on the delayed flight, but we were responsible for transportation and hotel for 2 days! Understandable that they can't control the weather, but no excuse for forcing us to stay or paying extra."
Cons: "The flight was very delayed, but I had to wait the whole time because JetBlue will sometimes take off on time even after they emailed you about a delay. So I spent hours at the airport."
Pros: "Updates and courteous staff that carried on to work on our flight from the previous one."
Cons: "Towards the 4th and 5th delay information was confusion on why the delaying and approvals that were needed to continue the flight. Potentially a more honest and realistic delay of 4-5 hour shift initially would've been more comforting than being told 5 times our flight is delayed yet once again."
Pros: "The flight was fast and comfortable. The crew was quick and organized. The seats were comfortable as was the foot room."
Cons: "The tvs were broken the entire flight but I had a book so I was able to read that instead. When the tvs were working the earphone jacks were so worn out my earphones barely worked. Basically old and tired."
Pros: "Efficient boarding, clean & comfortable seats."
Pros: "Pilot was funny and staff was very professional."
Cons: "That boarding was backwards with the last rows going on first :-("
Cons: "With many late afternoon flights to/from Orlando in the summer, weather is a factor. My 7:35pm flight was delayed until 12:30AM, arrived after 3AM. Tough flight. Onboarding crew was very pleasant and I was thankful that JetBlue was able to find, what I am assuming was another crew, to bring us home. At least it didn't cancel and have to find a hotel room in NEWARK. FLT127 6/26/17. NWK-MCO"
Pros: "The fly attendance was so nice that he even made a toy for my baby girl."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and attentive. Although the aircraft was a little dated, it was a smooth ride given the weather. The pilot was excellent."
Pros: "Jet Blue is great! Very accommodating and friendly!"
Pros: "I liked that I got a fire exit seat, but then was made to think as if I had a special duty to the stewardess who demanded my attention to this, I guess, privilege. I just wanted to go to sleep."
Cons: "Plane was 2 hours late, pretty much overshadowed everything else I didnt like."
Pros: "crew was good"
Cons: "Four hours late. asked early on what was going on told that the flight coming in was late. then was told an hour before plane arrives it'll be another hour car because maintenance crew had to check things out. LAME!"
Pros: "The best flight ever, the crew, the attention, the flight, everithing great! Even the snacks!"
Pros: "The overall experience was flawless. I look forward to flying again."
Cons: "Nothing. I don't have anything negative to say about the JetBlue experience."
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Gate crew not given information about reason or extent of delay. Once on board there was another delay with no explanation."
Cons: "Lack of control of crowd Boarding is like free for all, gate agents in general need stricter control of boarding from mosaic thru final rows, as a frequent traveler i continue to aee this time and time again once bording is called the crowd builds - agents should stop boarding if people will not remain AWAY. From boarding area, you need a way to get their attn"
Pros: "Everything else typical JetBlue great."
Cons: "Gate attendants on overly loud speakers shouting orders and other nonsense. Made for a very unpleasant experience. Not typical of JetBlue. Retrain or replace them. They had no control of the process."
Cons: "Extremely long delay. I didn't like that the delay updates were sent incrementally - I know that it's impossible to forecast this sometimes but it seemed like this was unnecessarily optimistic, and the 30 minute pushbacks became annoying and inconvenient."
Pros: "Crew finally moved me"
Cons: "X large xtra loud passenger beside me window seat He over flowed into my seat that I paid for He refused to Stowe his carry on after three times being told by crew he took the arm over and repeatedly turned my volume full blast hurting my ears I was offered a drink I think a flight would be appropriate and ban that passenger on future trips"
Cons: "Plane was delayed by 4 hours"
Pros: "the attention and the treat that they gave me during the flight"
Pros: "Smooth Flight up was one bumpy ride odd fast landing screa"
Cons: "Sick yelling children"
Pros: "Normally liked Jetblu flights."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for almost 2 hrs making me miss the Miami Heat game."
Pros: "I wanted to ask for compensation as I faced issue second time for the round trip. Should refund me all the amount. Even my baggage is also damaged"
Cons: "Airlines have to adjust their bagagge practices. Some many people are trying to get around fees that the bins are overflow and a fight almost broke out. This wasn't helped by an attendant tell people as they board to place bags anywhere even if not seated at that location."
Pros: "Spacious! Confirtable leg space"
Cons: "Entertainment system was bad :( small screen and bad resolution"
Pros: "Boarding process was easy and organized. Flight was near on time and arrived early."
Pros: "Boarding efficient and latest films available. Price excellent."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Never happened"
Pros: "The landing was perfect"
Pros: "Just about everything was perfect. lots of leg room in economy plus, seat next to me stayed empty, the meals were very taste. And the crew members were extremely professional. It was just a perfect experience."
Pros: "Safe flight"
Pros: "The seat was comfortable (for economy), service pleasant, food nothing special but fine, entertainment good. Boarding was efficient; there was a slight delay due to de-icing, but that's normal"
Cons: "It was impossible to download a boarding pass on either Lufthansa's website or any other (code share with United). Lufthansa gives you a number to call but they are open only 9-5 weekdays; when I called their regular office, I listened to a very annoying message routing for 15 minutes before hanging up. They have to work this out better, though I must say that at the United gate I could print it out easily at the machine, and the staff there was exceptionally helpful"
Pros: "Never been treated so disrespectful and like I was insignificant in allyour life!"
Pros: "Luggage was nowhere to be found for 12 hours. Had to go to the airport to pick up the next day. Luggage tracking web site is useless - it does not get updates at all. Very disappointed."
Pros: "Fast loading and effect attendant"
Pros: "Crew was honest. Provided ice water."
Cons: "Prop plane didn't have air conditioning (flight 4989) thank God it was only 45 minutes and FA provided ice water."
Pros: "The staff was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The food was OK, the entertainment was left to be desired. The comfort was just ok, but to be expected"
Pros: "They let us know ahead of time so we could arrive later to the airport, and did not have to wait in the airport."
Cons: "- They were very strict about carry-on luggage size, and insisted even after the flight being 3 hours late. My carry-on fit into their overhead compartment just fine. - No food was offered during the 6 hours flight. - Chairs in coach are uncomfortable for long flights (same as some other airlines I've flown with). Feet or head rest could be nice additions that don't require much additional space per passenger."
Pros: "Boarding on time"
Cons: "Headphone jack was broken Beer on the first flight was free, on the return cost 7 dollars"
Pros: "Smooth ride"
Cons: "Could not cross my legs Not enough room for food and diabetes kit Flight information would not load"
Cons: "The crew was held up in Houston we had an additional lay over onto our already 3+ hour wsot"
Cons: "Delayed, No food"
Pros: "Staff excellent"
Cons: "Everything else, space restrictive"
Pros: "Seats where ok and they gave beverage"
Cons: "Literally no leg room space"
Pros: "Great crew and smooth flight overall"
Cons: "Seats seem to be getting smaller"
Pros: "Dependable, fast, clean"
Pros: "I liked the new movies. Lots of movie selections. Friendly flight crew."
Cons: "Flight was a little bumpy at times, and flight was also delayed 1 hr."
Pros: "The seats were mostly comfortable (although extremely cramped), pillows and blankets were provided. I liked the one free thing offered; ability to follow the planes progress on my iPhone."
Cons: "All of the screens on the side of the cabin I sat in did not work so even if we chose to pay the ridiculous fees for content it wasn't an option. Charging $16 for internet is gouging to the extreme. Truthfully, I would choose to pay a little more for my ticket if I knew that United did not cram people in like sardines, provided good quality free internet, provided free video content (on consoles that worked), and provided a small snack (better than a little wafer)."
Pros: "The fact that I made it to Vegas!!!"
Cons: "Flight uncomfortable the staff wasn't all that pleasant nor attentive..."
Cons: "Plane was not up to par with other current planes. Pricing was high for not having more leg space, TV's which should be a standard by now, and free liquor/wine on international flights! United is truly a disappointment and I may not be flying with them anymore if I had a choice"
Pros: "Movies on-demand over WIFI from smart phone using the United app. Friendly staff. Flight left late but landed on-time."
Cons: "Older airplane. In-seat entertainment not working (technical issue). Dinner was disappointing - one piece of chicken had an off taste, and the salad (quinoa?) had an odd mix of flavors."
Cons: "The departure monitor first said "on time," then "awaiting aircraft," with ever-later estimates for departure. There was little confidence that there would even be a plane."
Pros: "United made this a very comfortable flight! Boarding was quick, flight attendants (especially Adrian!) were very kind and went out of their way to make sure passengers were comfortable. I will definitely fly United for future international flights!"
Cons: "Lunch served before 11am EST, right after snack and drink service."
Pros: "I love the check in process!! You go to a kiosk and print your boarding pass and luggage tag and then just go and hand in your bag to an agent. Soooo easy. Then no ones in line forever. I was very impressed with the little extra amount of leg space that is not always on most planes. The flight wasn't very full and the crew was kind and generous with a couple of us wanting to switch our seats around. The tvs in the back of the headrest definitely kept me occupied watching New Girl. Overall, I was very comfortable and got to my destination without getting upset or angry once...which can't be said for all airlines."
Cons: "The security line for united in Newark was RIDICULOUS! It didn't take very long to get through...maybe 30-45 minutes (which I planned for) but the line snaked through two floors and wrapped through the check in area. It just looked incredibly daunting. But I realize that there isn't really much that can be done about that!"
Pros: "Customer service at Dulles was helpful"
Cons: "My trip was jacked up on both ends, starting with cancelled flight at 11 p.m. the night before, phone calls to United to change flights on the way out, and then maintenance on the way back home, which caused me to miss my connection in Dulles. Horrible accommodations, bad replacement flights, baggage service in Syracuse was dishonest and apathetic. All around bad."
Pros: "Super fast boarding and flight. Actually arrived an hour ahead of schedule"
Pros: "Friendly service"
Cons: "United did not inform me original flight was cancelled. Kayak did Seats are cramped"
Cons: "Had to change plans because the septic line wasn't taken care of so the lines were frozen. The plane wasn't warmed up for us to board. We were told to exit the plane and go to another terminal but never explaned to take the shuttle . I took the Tran and had to go back through security and almost missed the plane. I was the last person to board. This was my 1st time traveling to that airport. No way to know that the Tran would require me to pass through security checkpoint again. Get better communication with people. The lady at the desk was just saying go to terminal A! They should have had a person directing all of us to go to the shuttle and bussed us to the terminal."
Cons: "The inside of the plane felt 50 years old. Completely uncomfortable."
Cons: "Free wifi access"
Pros: "Flight attendants we good."
Cons: "It took 6 hours to get from Newark to Tampa, had to detour to refuel.. The weather on the ground seems decent but we were in so much turbulence for so long people were vomiting!! Worst flight experience ever and the pilot, thank God for his experience, was a bit sarcastic and said he wouldn't apologize for the bad experience bc it wasn't his fault."
Cons: "Ride was quite bumpy Couldn't get an aisle seat."
Pros: "The staff on the plane was very nice. Good movie choices"
Cons: "There was mass chaos in Newark airport- the tea lines were out of control. I was at the airport super early. I had about 5 minutes to run to my gate. Unnecessary stress to travelers that day."
Pros: "The flight was ok but they got my luggage almost destroyed and I couldn't complain once I got it, because no one was working in the courier."
Cons: "The flight was ok but they got my luggage almost destroyed and I couldn't complain once I got it, because no one was working in the courier."
Pros: "Tight seating funky food"
Pros: "I was such bit cold on the flight. Other than that it was great"
Pros: "Late flight meant service was hurried and sub-par United's movies are pretty good actually"
Cons: "Flight was late and I missed my connecting flight"
Pros: "Flight West went without a hitch. (Compared to hortible flight east two weeks prior)"
Pros: "On time, food"
Cons: "Much less space then on a flight to US"
Pros: "Great flight attendant"
Pros: "Plane was not crowded. Less claustrophobic. Bathrooms clean."
Cons: "Sound system. The PA blasting through ear phones is annoying."
Pros: "Crew was nice. Smooth flight."
Cons: "flight delay, then another equipment delay. But, better to fly in a safe airplane than rush things. I think the seats would be a little uncomfortable for a flight longer than a couple hours."
Pros: "It was timely no long lines"
Cons: "No free drinks"
Pros: "The safety announcement just before take off was a refreshing & original presentation done by the very cheerful flight attendant, Brittany."
Cons: "There was a 70 pound German Shepherd taking up my fiance's leg room"
Pros: "The staff on our flight to Philadelphia was excellent!"
Cons: "We arrived at Miami Airport 2 1/2 hours before our flight as request by your airline request only to find no staff .to check luggage. We waited an hour along with 60 other people before any of your staff decided to come to work. I walk with a cane and there were several seniors would had to wait in line. I think it is ridiculous that you do not have staff at the kiosk for your early morning flights. This type of service is unacceptable!"
Pros: "flights there and back left on time. significantly more leg room than on the United flight I took to mexico city recently. seats don't lean back but I don't care about that, and it means that the person in front of me won't be leaning their seat back into me. You have to be very careful that you understand all the rules about baggage and seating (don't pay extra-they'll just assign you one, and you probably won't sit with your traveling companion). Great as long as you can fit everything you need into a bag that fits under the seat in front of you. got TSA pre-check both ways, too. yippee."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled and I had to buy another flight at the last minute with Delta. Frontier's website did not mention the cancellation at all and I had to find it on Google and Flightview. They refunded me but it could've costed me big-time if I didn't find a cheap last minute flight."
Pros: "The flight was on time and we arrived earlier than anticipated."
Cons: "Seats don't recline on frontier plane."
Pros: "Staff was nice"
Cons: "They have stripped down the seats of this plane to make more room to squeeze in more rows. The seats are incredibly uncomfortable even for my short 3 hour flight. The try table is less than the size of a half sheet of paper - you simply cannot put your laptop up and work. $35 for a carry on, nickel and dime you for everything including a drink. Last time I will be flying frontier!"
Pros: "Cheap fare, but you pay for everything else. Crew were fun. Plane is spartan."
Cons: "Everything has a price. Everything."
Cons: "flight got cancelled at last moment"
Pros: "The flight crew was friendly."
Cons: "No snacks. Having to pay for a beverage. And there were no in-flight entertainment options and no magazines in the seat back pocket."
Cons: "Bag fair, airline in general"
Pros: "I specifically loved all of the crew members on my flights to Orlando and back home. They gave me a few good laughs with their jokes and funny expressions. Another great factor of using Frontier is that they keep you up to schedule with your flight by sending you emails from the morning of until your flight departs to insure you don't miss a gate change or flight delays."
Cons: "The only downfall of using this airline is that the customer is not informed before hand that you have to pay an additional, but small, cost to choose your seat. The customer is also charged for a carry on unlike some other airlines who allow 1 free carry on."
Pros: "I felt deceived by Frontier. I knew paying the low fair I was going to get a bare bones trip. I was fine with paying for my own drink. I cannot believe that the airline is charging $40 bags for a carry on!!!!!! Also I had to pay an additional $27 each so my husband and I could sit together. Shame on you frontier. Of given the choice I will NEVER fly with this airline again. Everyone I tell about my experience has their own negative story to tell about Frontier. I suggest you change your practice before you go out of business. My final cost was double the original price of my original ticket. Just price the ticket as it should be."
Pros: "Boarded on Time Flight smooth and early. Only disruptions were at the airport its self."
Pros: "Cost of the flight was substantially less than another airline I was looking into and it was a nonstop flight, whereas the other airlines had 1 or 2 stops. Both flights were on time...everything went smoothly. Flight attendants were very pleasant."
Cons: "Paying for a carryon was unexpected; it adds about $35 each way), but you are able to carry a smaller bag at no charge."
Cons: "Bait & Switch or Bait & Pile Two plane tickets priced at 156.00 ended up costing 364.00 because I wanted to sit with my wife and we each wanted to bring one carry-on bag! Refused to pay an ADDITIONAL 45.00 each to sit in comfortable seats!"
Pros: "Boarding in Zone 1 because of just having carry on items."
Cons: "Pricing of seats. I upgraded cheaper to a better seat in economy for a Chicago to Tokyo flight last month."
Cons: "got delay bad service"
Pros: "We arrived early with both arrivals to Florida And Phil"
Cons: "When checking in the airline charged us extra money to assign a seat. When asking further and after we already paid we were told we didn't have to pay the extra money if we didn't want to sit as a family and would not refund our money. Which cost an extra $90.00 for the seat assignment one way."
Pros: "Awful flight...seats are uncomfortable...kids are annoying...flight was super loud...flight was super turbulent...will never fly frontier again :("
Pros: "The flight attendants were great and very very funny. It's always nice to be loosened up before, during and after a flight."
Pros: "Flight attendants were nice"
Cons: "Who charges for carry on luggage? Never encountered that with other airlines. Also, Frontier charged MORE for carry on vs checked bags. Who does that????? I will literally NEVER fly frontier again."
Cons: "problem printing boarding pass on Frontier web site, had problem with this web site before- very unfriendly and doesn't work"
Pros: "Flight was on time. Pilot was communicative. Easy boarding and deboarding process."
Pros: "Comfortable seating, long seatbelts, clean planes."
Cons: "Paying seat fees and carry-ons twice. When I have flown with other airlines, I did not pay for a carry-on. With Frontier, I paid twice! Between the seat fees and paying for carry-ons, I paid an extra $134 in addition to my ticket prices!!! I was not a happy camper about that and probably will not fly with them again."
Pros: "me gusto mucho el precio la forma y el trato, el tiempo Bueno sin cambios felicidades muchas gracias.. Marisol Martinez"
Cons: "nada de comer, aunque page en el boleto, creo que Deben dar un snack por las personas que no tienen tarjeta de credito. Marisol"
Pros: "Although I paid extra for my carry-on ($45; which I was aware of, but some people may not be) the flight attendants were friendly and professional. They were courteous upon stepping onto the plane and throughout the duration of the flight. The seats were comfortable, and overhead space was plentiful. My 2.5 hour flight from Tampa to PHL was shortened to 2 hours. Overall, it was a great experience flying Frontier for my very first time."
Pros: "Pilot was a cowboy, quick taxi and fast flight, arrived at gate 45 minutes early. On a late flight, the early arrival was a welcomed outcome."
Cons: "I checked a hard case fishing rod tube that contained a brand new fishing rod. The case can be opened from the top and side and both can be locked. The side was the only thing locked and top opening had a simple clip on it so anyone could to easily open it up and inspect the inside. Someone cut the side lock off, took the case apart obviously looking for something and then jammed everything back together securing the cut off lock with a zip tie. After I got home late that night I noticed my lock was cut off and rod broken in 2 pieces. Very disappointed, hopefully someone at Frontier reimburses me for the damage."
Cons: "Actually the tickets were cancelled due to my wife"s (KARAMJIT K UBEROI ) sudden sickness and in spite of promise by your customer service to re credit to my Credit Card, later on denied the same .However a flight credit for the amount was provided to use within three months .We were harassed by making repeated faxes and make calls nearly dozen times."
Pros: "Cheap tickets"
Cons: "No food or entertainment"
Cons: "i wasnt able to even fly"
Pros: "INITIALLY, I was thrilled with the low price. That changed radically when I found out that Frontier charges for everything except air. The crew was polite and informative and let us know what was happening with our hour-plus delay."
Cons: "Didn't like the new seats and the tiny tray--very uncomfortable and practically useless. That said, I wasn't going to use the tray anyway (couldn't even put a tablet on it) for food, as Frontier is charging for food and water. At the time, I was not aware that I would be charged separately for baggage, including carry-on bags. If I had been, I would have MAILED my luggage to my final destination, as it would have been cheaper. My family of four turned out to have five bags, which added approximately $500 to the roundtrip cost of the tickets, or MORE than it cost for the tickets. That's right, flying the people (who weigh more than luggage) turned out to be cheaper than flying the bags. Look, if you want to encourage people to check bags, make checking the bag FREE. If you're just looking for a revenue stream, then you should be up front about what the costs will be. (But then people would be less inclined to book your "cheaper" tickets, wouldn't they?) Also, the flight wound up being delayed for over an hour, though my phone and the Frontier website continued to show "on time" status."
Pros: "Counter person said next flight he could book us on was Jan 03, 6 days later. We ended up renting a car and driving from Chicago to Philly. If there had been an ounce of concern over our condition by this worker I would feel differently, but Frontier will get no more of my familiy's business."
Pros: "The seats had a surprising amount of legroom, and the staff was nice (though i'm not sure why there were as many as a normal flight from another airline, since they don't do anything beyond the safety demo)"
Cons: "You are not adequately made aware that you will be charged for carry on unlike other airlines. And in doing so, the price of the ticket goes from being impressively cheap to being more than a flight from another airline that has more included amenities, like actual refreshements and free carry-ons. You also get charged for just selecting a seat, not a special seat, but ANY SEAT AT ALL. So the price you initially see when searching for flights is quite misleading. In reality, you should ad at least 50 bucks to any frontier ticket to get a truer picture of what the price would be for a normal passenger with a single carry-on that wants a particular seat."
Cons: "Hidden fees! Seat fees, checks. Bag fees. And what the **** is a carry-on bag fee? And after paying $75 to have two small bags TOTAL, y'all lost my luggage? Never again."
Pros: "NOT MUCH!"
Cons: "This was my first time using Frontier Airlines. The price and schedule met my needs. After paying $30/each way for checking my bag plus paying for a seat (would they allow me to stand?) not sure it was so good a price. The worst was when three flights came in at the same time and ALL the luggage was sent to the same area. I WAITED AN HOUR TO GET MY SUITCASE."
Cons: "Picture the waiting room at the Social Security office... Turned into an airplane... Same seats, same people! Here's the cherry on top of this Turd Sundae: Kayak sent me an email saying the flight was delayed an hour, I show up an hour later and it turns out the plane was never delayed! I almost missed the flight! I'm never flying Frontier or using Kayak again."
Cons: "Worst costumer service I have ever dealt with. Spoke with three employees that each told me to do something different. Finally, spoke to a department head and was told that his employees were misspoken. Who trains these guys?"
Pros: "The staff was helpful and polite. Although plane was delayed it still arrived in good time."
Cons: "Not much leg room. Paying to pick your seat is ridiculous when traveling with family."
Pros: "By far the cheapest flight...and it was non-stop. No problems with anything. Would definitely use again. Some of the people complaining should do their homework. Everything is spelled out in terms of costs."
Pros: "Absolutely the worst airline I have ever been on! You buy the ticket under the assumption you got a great deal. What they do not not tell you is that when you purchase an economy ticket, which everyone buys except first class you have to pay for carry on. Your first checked in bag costs $40, any bag after that is $45. So my carry on bag cost $45! Between my husband and I we spent a total of $170 on luggage for two checked bags and two carry ons. So if you are bringing any luggage with you, go on a different airline, you will save money by the end of the day. Also, all drinks and food are for purchase."
Cons: "The captain said no gates were available so they delayed our flight for an hour after they let us board the plane. Almost all of the gates in the terminal were available when we got to Philadelphia. Frontier doesn't give out free drinks or peanuts on the flight. They also charge $5 extra if you don't check your bag online. The seat doesn't recline. Frontier is by far the worst airline ever!!!!"
Cons: "I didn't like paying for a seat that I already purchased. Perhaps I'm "old fashioned" in that when I buy a ticket, I automatically get a seat. But at check-in when given my seat selection I could choose $13 seats or $20 seats. I thought this wasn't allowed anymore in that your purchase price is the price you pay unless you upgrade to a better seat."
Pros: "The pilot was very friendly, I liked his tie. The copilot was also friendly."
Cons: "The rest of the staff were rude and unprofessional. The chairs were so uncomfortable. There was no complimentary drink, and when you ask for just water the staff rolls their eyes and gives it to you as if it was the biggest inconvenience for them. When they approach you with the cart they say, "Is anyone purchasing anything?" I also didn't like that there was hardly any announcements on the loudspeaker to let us know about what is happening, or when we might approximately be landing."
Cons: "flight was an hour off with no explanation as to the cause. Seats did not recline and were terribly uncomfortable."
Pros: "We had a flight to Philadelphia we boarded on time and landed early! It was great!"
Pros: "The crew and ticket price are the only positive things I can think of."
Cons: "You have to pay ridiculous prices for just about everything. If water wasn't necessary for basic survival they probably would've charged at least 1 dollar per ounce. You can't recline and leg room is scarce."
Pros: "Frontier airines was great. We got a ridiculously cheap flight so to pay $30 for a carry on was no problem. We knew all the fees up front so we planned accordingly and packed light. Staff was friendly and organized. Flight got in early."
Pros: "We had a weather delay— so we sat in the plane for 3 hours before we left. Should have had the option go leave."
Cons: "Especially for a red eye flight, I have never had a more uncomfortable flight experience. I couldnt fall asleep on my flight due to inadequate leg space, nonreclining seating, and seats that did not support my back."
Pros: "Nothing. How could a flight not give free water? People need to take meds and should be required to pay $5 for bottled at the terminal. Everything is just highway robbery. Some folks don’t even have a credit card or fir that matter the cash."
Cons: "I was totally humiliated at the gate when I was taken off line because I had one extra bag to carry on. I was then charged $65 to then bring it on board an additional $20 to secure a sit since the flight had been over booked. The flight was delayed for the late arrival of on board staff. Most of the passengers were flight crew either connecting."
Pros: "smooth flight, easy check in, nice service, hassle free"
Cons: "no recliners, long wait from landing to gate"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "They have hidden fees that Kayak is not telling you when you buy their tickets. They chrged me $57 just for small carryon bag and then you have to pay for the seat separately to board the plane. What is your ticket for? Reason to get to airpirt and ready yourself to pay what ever they ask. One has to pay additional fees to get boarding pass....."
Cons: "Agendas were extremely rude and disrespectful. I had a family issue causing me to drive to my destination, and kept my flight so I could fly home. When I went to check in online, there was no itinerary to be found. I called, and they said since I was a "no show", it was cancelled and I could not be reimbursed. I offered to use it as credit and get a new flight, paying the difference. This request was declined. The agents on the phone were very rude. Spirit nickel and dimes you, has no available seats, doesn't feed you, and the planes are small. I will never attempt to take this airline again."
Pros: "Compared to Frontier I liked the smooth moving lines for bag check ins, and a ground person helping folks backed up on flights that were boarding and in a panic. The flight crew was nice."
Cons: "It's hard when we can't get a beverage or snack anymore on a plane."
Pros: "I am puzzled about how can I get the receipt of the tickets. would you please tell me by email? My email is email@example.com. Thank you very much!"
Pros: "I didn't like anything."
Cons: "There was delays both ways. No room to move. Couldn't sleep on the way home. Food and water had to be purchased."
Cons: "My flight to Philadelphia due to "weather." No notice, no effort to place us on another flight. Typical Spirit which is why I try to avoid flying with them whenevet possible. My mistake."
Pros: "Sprit ground crew distroyed my luggage"
Pros: "The flight and crew were good! Boarding was easy."
Cons: "The add ons for carry on luggage and seating. I had to pay $45 each for carry ons and $10 a seat to choose my seats so my wife and I could sit together! Terrible"
Pros: "It was the cheapest"
Cons: "Almost everything."
Pros: "The crew and staff at Las Vegas and on the flight are very nice. The pilot's landing was like a feather."
Cons: "The seats on the airplane are terrible. Being forced to sit upright with no real tray table for 6 hours is cruel and unusual punishment. The staff in PHL are the worst ever - cantankerous pessimists that have no clue on airline operations."
Cons: "The numerous delays for boarding The lack of communication as to why our flight kept getting delayed"
Cons: "4 hours in airport, flight cancelled. Received verbal future travel voucher. Tried to book the next day, and use voucher, 17 digit code needed. The website says if you don't have the code, contact us. (This is where you really get fucked) Called 801-401-2222 as stated on the website, no one will ever get on the phone, it's a trap. This airline and this company, and all of it's representatives, shareholders, employees, and management can SUCK MY DICK!!!"
Cons: "What does Atlanta look like? Spirit never got me there."
Pros: "Flight to Chicago was great- early- arrived early- good service- no issues- I was impressed- but the way back was less than enjoyable"
Cons: "the plane was delayed to the point that when we arrived, there were no spirit staff at baggage claim, and when some luggage got stuck on the conveyor, there was no one to get us our luggage- it took an hour (at 2AM) for us to find someone to come and get our stuff for us. The man who did, did so, even though it wasn't his job- and he was very helpful- but the lack of staff and assistance left a very bad taste in our mouth toward Spirit."
Pros: "I LOVED the price and the insintives of free miles but not even complimentary coffee or soda cans! I mean THREE DOLLARS FOR A CAN OF SODA!!!"
Cons: "No free soda cans, no coffee!? What's even worse, no free water!!!??? I had to eat ice!!! I mean come on!? Cheap is great but to pay for water!? A basic human necessity!?"
Cons: "The airline did not accommodate an accident on a freeway. United, American and Delta all did."
Pros: "The flight was fast as well as comfortable!"
Cons: "Baggage claim took over an hour.....mechanical issues. A young man in the spirit office wound up, going down into the conveyer belt pit, to physically bring luggage up. It was a late flight on top of that."
Pros: "The price..."
Cons: "Check in and boarding...the staff looked completely miserable. Of course, the time could have been a factor. Other issues with the flight were beyond Spirit Airline's control."
Pros: "They gave us free Pringles because they felt bad"
Cons: "4 hour delay. They said it was staffing reasons."
Cons: "Delayed 5 hours, it is very bad air."
Pros: "The airplane and the pilot."
Cons: "I never got to PHL via Spirit !!! I had to come up with the idea that even though the flight to ORD was so late, since the plane was continuing on to Baltimore that it would get out of ORD. I had to request to be booked on the flight to Baltimore and I had to rent a car (at quite an expense) in order to drive and complete my trip."
Cons: "Crew was rude, they all need to be fired. Online was confusing. Charge for everything. Terrible airline . I'll never fly with spirit again ."
Pros: "On time and good crew"
Pros: "The price I have paid for the flight."
Cons: "...everything else... You name it, it is lousy! A same day round-trip flight from Philadelphia to Atlanta that would normally be one hour and forty minutes each way, took three and half hours in the morning and five and half hours in the evening, and by-the-way weather was not a factor. NEVER AGAIN!!!"
Pros: "I liked that the price of the flight was inexpensive."
Cons: "The crew on the flight was extremely unprofessional, suggesting that we don't "hurt one another" when we are free to take other open seats. Also, the seriousness of the crew and the responsible feeling that I normally get from a flight crew was not there. The pilot was good. But the attendants were telling " jokes". An airplane is not a comedy club. I like to feel safe, and that the staff is capable in the event of an emergency. Also, the plane seemed dirty with advertisements inside the cabin for a specific hotel in Vegas. This gave the plane a very ghetto feeling."
Pros: "Nothing. Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "Delayed flight in hour-long intervals over four hours, only to finally cancel at 1 am with no explanation. Weather was fine, no mechanical complications. We were left stranded at O'Hare at 2 am...next flight wasn't until 9 pm the NEXT night. Terribly rude attendants. Awful, pitiful excuse for an airline. This happened once before (only other time we tried to fly with Spirit, except the next flight was ONE WEEK later). Just awful. No other words for this terrible airline and laughable service."
Pros: "Everyone had a good attitude."
Cons: "They didn't let a guy move to a different seat even though the plane was less than 1/2 full."
Pros: "The young lady at the desk tried her to update us as the information was made available to her ."
Cons: "There were no comfort with the seats."
Pros: "The Agent was very accommodating and pleasant. Thumbs up!!"
Cons: "The fees for luggage, toooooooo costly. The carryone should be free and pay for the check in bags. I was not a happy camper."
Pros: "Cheap price"
Cons: "Extremely small seat space"
Cons: "Horrible. You will get charged even if you blink. Seats doesn't recline. Want some water? Pay for it. While other flights allow 50lbs in your checked bag, they only give you 50lb. You pay if you check in at the airport. WHAT? You pay for a CARRY ON."
Pros: "They sould not charge for personal bag which is one bigger than their size, beside no leg room neither seat do not recalain seem got punishment for entire flight"
Cons: "late boarding. late takeoff. no updates. disaster."
Pros: "Crew was awesome and flight was great when it finally arrived."
Cons: "Flight being delayed numerous times and it seemed like the workers who boarded us had no clue what was going on"
Pros: "We didnt receive our suitcase in GA (12/22). we waited at the airport for 3 horus and they couldnt figure out where the suitcase went. Then we filled a claim form. my Fatherinlaw was in the car waiting for us for 3 hours. We went home and realized my meds are in the suitcase. I called a few times but they still couldnt track the bag. We had to go shopping for clothes because we had a party that night and I had to buy cosmetic, clothes, toilterites, etc. it was a waste of time. Time I could be spending with my family. Me, my husband and my inlaws called a few times next day (12/23) asking for an update but no one had a clue where the bag is. At this point, we had no idea where to bag is so we had to go shopping again and buy more clothes for next few days. Again, more time, money, gas in car, other people time that had to drive us invested… it was very frustrating. I take a lot of meds which makes me anxious and this created a huge stress on my Christmas vacation. All of my gifts I got for our family was in the suitcase. This was a very frustrating time for me and my husband, not knowing if the family will have gifts ontime. Also, my laptop charger was in the suitcase so I had to take days off from work. We called again a few times on 12/24. we called in again and no answer. We drove all the way to the airport and spoke to a really nice lady. We were at the airport for hours. She couldn’t track the luggage so we went home disappointed. Keep in mind, this was Christmas eve and I could have spent all this time shopping, driving to the airport, to busy stores. By this time I gave up on the bag and accepted we have lost it… I was very very upset because all of my gifts, new clothes I got for the vacation, my cosmetic, my husband’s electronics… We had more than 3K worth stuff in the suitcase. I couldn’t even get hold of the customer service to talk to someone. This was Christmas eve.. and my husband was still trying to call someone. Finally got hold of someone and they said that the bag was in Philly and will get to the house next day 1pm. Ok, great, atleast they could track the bag… Anyways, 1pm next day, no bag..we tried calling all day, but no answer. Finally my husband got hold of someone and they said that the bag will be deliver Xmas night. WOW! But ok. Whtever at this point. We waited all evening.. then called again. They didn’t answer. Finally around 10pm they answered and told my husband that we are 5th in line for the bag delivery and they wont be able to get to us until late in the night. My husband agreed to the time. They called us 230am and asked to verify address which I am glad they did because they had a wrong address. Anyways, my husband was on the phone texting/ calling for directions and finally the bag came at 4am…. The suitcase was damaged. Gladly nothing was missing… HOWEVER, the frustration for the whole week made my Christmas trip a really bad one… I am very big on customer service so it frustrates me that we were not able to contact anyone to get answer.. I understand that the luggage could get lost but not being able to track it for days while you are on vacation in a different state??!!! It was the most frustrating thing me and my family had to deal with. Also, I paid $50 both sides to check in a bag which I didn’t use. I got the bag 4am 12/26, the day I flew back home… so I paid all that money to check in my bag for stuff I never used. Glad I was able to give gifts to my family the day after Christmas. Also, all the stuff I bought for the week including clothes, cosmetic, charger so I can work from home, etc. I had to ship the stuff back which I paid for…. AWFUL experience."
Pros: "I had a row to myself on the way back. That was about it."
Cons: "Flight was delayed with no explanation given, Spirit charges exorbitant bag fees even for carry-on luggage, which isn't made very clear when you book. Charging more for carry-on bags instead of checked bags means that I had to waste even more time waiting for my bag to come through baggage claim on both legs."
Cons: "didn't ride because their plane wasn't able to hold most of the people on the plane (including myself) so I was booked on a completely different flight with AA."
Cons: "This may not be a totally accurate review for this specific flight, since it never happened because it was CANCELLED. Spirit Airlines in general is a horrible airline company to deal with. Constant delays, TERRIBLE customer service, absolutely NO refund policy, and ridiculous rebooking times. My flight was cancelled due to a huge winter storm, and Spirit said they couldn't book me til FOUR days after my original fly-out date. I have never had a good experience with Spirit - cramped seating and never have been on a Spirit flight that left on time. I will never be flying with this company again."
Pros: "My flight was cancelled due to "weather" even though every other airline was flying to the same destination. Then, after waiting an hour and a half for customer service and another 45 minutes of arguing, I finally got a refund on my flight and a $7 voucher for food which can only be used in the next 48 hours. It was a miserable experience."
Pros: "Not one thing"
Cons: "The. People that work here are horrible. Rude and very unhelpful. We will never use them again.."
Pros: "was cheaper than the other flights"
Cons: "I had almost no leg room. was far more difficult to get my ticket compared to other airlines. I know that it is a n economy airline and that Spirits goal is to make the flight as cheap as possible, but for how uncomfortable and annoying the trip was for me I would much rather spend the extra money on a better flight."
Pros: "We did not crash"
Cons: "Seats were cramped and uncomfortable; flight delayed so long I missed my time for rental car....had to get another from adifferent company."
Cons: "Spirit is the worst airline. They claim to be affordable, but charge for basic flight accessories. A carry-on costs $55, and a checked bag costs $52. You can't even get free water in-flight."
Cons: "I missed my flight. Spirit cancelled my entire ticket because of that. The round trip was cancelled. Nonsense. I lost all my money. I had to book another ticket."
