Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
"It was hard to hear the PA announcements for boarding. Maybe also post the info on the screen? Or allow the attendant to pull down his mask when speaking into the PA system?"

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Pros: "Great crew."
Pros: "Everything! the best part was that the they kept the middle seat empty!"

Cons: "My daughter was booked on this itinerary and was finishing her last leg of journey. Complete ticket was booked thru Delta Airlines. Her flight from Amsterdam to New York today operated by KLM, was delayed by few minutes. And Delta flight from JFK to Cleveland DL4084 was preponed by airlines. Result was my daughter was not allowed to board the aircraft. Worst was yet to come. Your staff at the gate offered her a flight to Cleveland for next day at 3:30 pm??? Means around 24 hours later. Is this how you behave with a girl of 19 years, asking her to stay at the airport. She was refused Hotel and Lounge stay by your team!!! Is this what you call customer services??? Obscene services is what I would like to term it as!!! My daughter asked them to give this is writing, which was refused to her. Why are your people scared to put it in writing if everything that you are doing is right by the Law??? I was left with no other option but to book her on American Airlines flight today departing at 9 pm to ensure that little girl doesn’t have to spend close to 24 hours at airport by paying $423. Who is going to bear the loss of money and mental torture that your team has given to me and my daughter???? I shall be awaiting your response as to what do you have to say to this pathetic attitude of your team. Rajesh Mendiratta Sent from my iPhone Rajesh"
Cons: "Delays, delays, delays... first class ticket from BOS to MSP got me a 6 hour delay and a middle seat in econ main cabin at the back of the plane. Delta you suck!"
Pros: "Got to London on-time (early, actually) and safely. The in flight meal was okay. The leg room in comfort plus was great, the mobile app was awesome, and the staff (check-in, gate, cabin and flight deck) were professional and friendly all around."
Cons: "The leg room was great, but as a broad-shouldered guy, the width of the seat was miserable. Unfortunately, the Delta 767 doesn't offer any upgrade for a wider seat beyond Delta One, and my employer won't spring for that. Too bad there isn't a premium economy option. Also, the entertainment unit in the seat next to mine malfunctioned, which you wouldn't think would impact me that much except that because it was "seeing" touches randomly throughout the flight, the screen would turn on, off, brighter, dimmer, play random stuff, and just generally be as annoying as possible to everyone nearby throughout an overnight flight."
Cons: "Tray table was broken, I was downgraded from Comfort plus to main cabin after a plane swap with no mention by anyone and no compensation. Flight was delayed 45 minutes because a flight attendant was running late and then to top it off, at the end of. The flight the attendants blocked anyone fromaim cabin from leaving until all of first class had departed, even when no one was coming they still Blocked it off. This is a practice I have never seen on delta and haven't seen in aviation in almost 20 years in the US"
Pros: "Super nice flight attendant. Really made all of us (business travelers, retired military folks, family with little kids heading to a wedding) feel welcomed and happy. Great experience."
Pros: "The woman who helped us at the desk by the gate was possibly the single most helpful, kind Delta employee I’ve ever met. She wheeled me down the jetway and upgraded our seats. I wish I knew her name. She has very curly dark blonde hair and is petite."
Pros: "Cabin crew and captain were great."
Cons: "Don't like how you don't get your seat assignment until you get to the gate. I was given the window seat in the very last row for a 6 hour flight, quite uncomfortable. I could've booked another airline for a similar price and picked the seat i wanted at booking. They ran out of food choices by the time they got to the last row, so we were given whatever was left. Delayed because one of the bathroom doors wasn't working, 30 min later still wasn't fixed and ultimately they decided to go without it."
Pros: "Staff smooth flight great landing and free movies"
Cons: "Everything was perfect"
Pros: "Your entertainment system is fabulous!"
Cons: "We purchased a direct flight from Boston to Tampa. We paid extra for the convenience of a direct flight Our flight was changed without notification to a connecting flight that was leaving 10 minutes earlier and arriving 2 hours later. Due to malfunction with the kiosk and not a sufficient amount of agents at check in, we missed our flight by 4 minutes. The gate agent seemed to enjoy telling us, with our 10 month old baby, that we were too late. Our baggage, including car seat, had been loaded on the plane. We were reassigned to a flight the following morning. We missed a full day with family, had to travel back home without a car seat and return to the airport the following day. I was shocked and disappointed that not single Delta agent was accommodating or remotely helpful while we were at the airport. I've never had a problem with Delta before. We travel on regularly and would like to continue using Delta. I would like a voucher for my next Delta trip."
Pros: "gate staff were great"
Cons: "plane cabin staff looked overworked"
Pros: "I was thankful for the early boarding with a lap infant and was very pleased with the options for entertainment on the TV monitor."
Cons: "The main issue I had was that we sat in row 34 and the noise from the engines often made it difficult to hear announcements, even with headphones in. Look into possibly zoning the audio and turning it up a click or two for rows behind the engines."
Cons: "My wife was told she could not board our flight from Boston to Paris because her passport was expired, even though it was not expired. We were told that in Europe passports cannot expire within 3 months of your departure. However, Delta never let us know about this rule until we literally were boarding the plane. How they could not make us aware of this until we were boarding the airplane is unbelievable and unacceptable. This has ruined our vacation which has been in planning for the last six months."
Pros: "Complimentary snack mini-meal. Early departure and arrival. Availability of extra seat and elbow room. Free movies."
Cons: "Entertainment screen would not tilt to comfortable angle when passenger in front of me reclined his seat, and the screen/system stopped functioning properly near end of flight."
Pros: "The only flight that was a bit better was from Mumbai to Hyderabad."
Cons: "Almost the entire trip, due to the following reasons: 1. The online check in process didn't work at all. The Delta staff at the Boston airport weren't pleasant and courteous at all. 2. Poor coordination between Delta & Jet Airways - the meal preference was selected before flight at the Jet Airways website but the same didn't get registered properly, even though the website confirmed to me that it was all set. This resulted in appropriate food not being available to the customer on the flight from Boston to Amsterdam. The customer had to literally starve on the flight. 3. The pursers and stewards on the flight from Boston to Amsterdam weren't pleasant and courteous at all. For anything they were asked, their responses ."
Pros: "Everything was just right"
Pros: "Delta service and conford are great."
Cons: "Pay for wifi"
"All was excellent"
Pros: "Boarding was easy, there was sufficient leg room"
Cons: "No snacks unless you want to pay an arm and a leg. One stewardess snapped at me when I tried to touch a bag of chips to move it and see what was available. She could’ve been a lot friendlier! I had no way of seeing what was on the cart from my seat and had to rely on her to tell me what was available. After I bought something and she passed by, I saw something else I’d rather have but it was too late by then….and she didn’t list it as an option. In flight movies would’ve been nice, too."
"My only real issue was that when I booked this flight through Kayak, I somehow booked via BudgetAir.com (though I was on your website.) Due to this, I was unable to access boarding passes coming or going via the Kayak app, or the Allegient app. Luckily I was able to print them prior to leaving home (and the resort printed them for on the way back), but using this site is definitely something I'll have to consider for my trip. I should have been able to access boarding passes electronically via the app regardless."
Pros: "Flight was great overall."
Cons: "Timelines was very poor. 2 hour delay because we don’t have a crew is terrible!"
Pros: "Crew was friendly, just wish they would offer a full can of soda or a water after a 3 hour delay."
Cons: "Leaving on time, but that wasn’t Allegiant fault. The 3 hour delay was all weather related."
Pros: "Everything (except the minimal seats)"
Cons: "Cushioned seats"
Pros: "Employees from the gate agent up to and including the flight attendants we are very accommodating and helpful!"
Cons: "I love the changes that have taken place. I last flew with them 5 years ago and vowed too never fly with them again. Times have changed and they are a great Airline!!!"
Cons: "Roomy aisles and seats, on time boarding and flight. Great job!"
Cons: "OMG, miffed and aggravated right now!! Currently on Allegiant Flight 1355. PIE to CVG A non-eating flight. These POSs MFers decide to have a friggen pizza party in the middle of the flight"
Cons: "More space under the seat in front of me for my carryon"
Pros: "Crew unfriendly, unprofessional, and not courteous,"
Pros: "Love Allegiant!"
Cons: "After 2 hour delay we had to beg for a water and the stewardess brought a tiny cup. Made for a very long night."
Pros: "The actual flight was comfortable and the crew was good."
Cons: "Flight time was pushed back a few weeks ago. Slow boarding process so we landed about 30 min late."
Pros: "They let us board early with two young kids"
Cons: "Everything is a la carte from food and drink to baggage"
Cons: "Unfriendly Flight attendants"
Pros: "The crew was great. We left on time and arrived on time."
Cons: "I wish water was free. That is the only thing I don't like. I understand it's a cheap airline so everything cost extra, which is fine. But come on, water should be free."
Pros: "No The crew was not friendly at all"
Cons: "I honestly am angry that I was charged for things others where not.This is ridiculous"
Pros: "Nice pilot and crew."
Cons: "The warning about alcohol was a bit sarcastic, but I guess in today's world people who have acted out are the real culprits..."
Pros: "Very efficient. Arrived early."
Cons: "Seating very tight."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and the price was low."
Cons: "Communication during our delay."
Cons: "Super rude personelle"
Pros: "Price and direct flights to popular destinations."
Cons: "No frills. Charging $5 for a printed boarding pass seems a bit excessive"
Pros: "For exception of price there is nothing I liked about"
Cons: "Uncooperative ground crew App doesn't work if you are not from the US"
Cons: "It was to uncomfortable to sit there in the plane for so long. I also noticed one of the flight attendants with the long brunette hair kept over looking me but would be in all the guys faces instead. Pretty sure it was a jelouse thing. The shorter brunette girl was really pleasant"
Pros: "To be honest nothing"
Cons: "Missed flight any no one was willing to help us pure BS"
Cons: "Baggage claim very slow"
Pros: "Wow, what an awesome flight , crew, price, and nice airport. Doing to try this again next time."
Cons: "Took forever to get the bags but hey , it is Christmas !"
Pros: "Keep the free snacks and drinks, NA or soda, I really just miss the legroom (nearly 6’ tall) and cushions, a chair that can ease back a bit. All airlines do this but you are worse than frontier, the major carriers have skimped but not like this."
Cons: "3 hour torture chamber. When she said it was their goal to make us comfortable, but more importantly to keep us safe I snorted laughter. It was a bit better and a lot shorter than the dark passage"
Pros: "It got us there and back for a descent price. The flight was fine but the seats are not comfortable and do not recline. I wouldn't suggest Allegiant for anything more than 2 hours and that was even pushing it."
Cons: "We arrived 3.5 hours early and the line was very long. They must have had a system glitch but didn't communicate to anyone in the line as to what was going on. When it did come time to board, they told everyone in the line that was going to Cincinnati that we couldn't check in until 2 hours before the departure time. Apparently there were some other flights that left before us. If they had told us to keep our place in line and to let other people through, that wouldn't have been a problem. But, they didn't. Their own website says you should check baggage at least 2 hours before your flight and no more than 4 hours before. They took it upon themselves to change the rules on people who arrive early. Then, once they no longer had anyone else to check in, they changed their rules again and start checking in people for Cincinnati about 2.5 hours ahead of time. A little communication and brain power from the staff would have gone a long way. After all that mess, the flight was delayed leaving about 15 minutes without any updates from Allegiant either."
Pros: "on time, hepful personnel"
Cons: "my gate checked luggage was lost"
Cons: "They were late boarding maki h us late to arrive in Cincinnati. Had open seating even though we paid for a seat"
Pros: "From entering the airport, gate, and plane- nothing is more pleasant and efficient than Allegiant flights. I was able to attend my grandsons bday and back by start of the next week- round trip at REASONBLE prices! Thank you."
Cons: "I am ok with it but the walk way was so filthy on my return trip. I know plane was late and we boarded late... but a really quick vacuum would have taken only a few minutes. I realize it was messy from cl"
Cons: "Sent email out asking for volunteers to reschedule her flight. Got on the plane our seats were not the same as selected. And we paid more to select our seats. Friend of ours seat was switched also and instead of him sitting next to his wife he sat next to a person who did not have an assigned seat he was extremely large and he was hanging off The seat into the aisle I noticed an empty seat and had to ask the stewardess if he could switch seats instead of the stewardess offering on her own. The flight out was delayed approximately one hour various mechanics coming on and off plane until finally we were able to leave."
Pros: "Didn't mind paying for bags, seat, snacks, drinks,.....but a 10hour delay!!!! UNEXCEPTABLE Will NEVER use this airline again!!!"
Cons: "10hour delay!!! No weather problem.."
Pros: "I never have any issues. Everything is always great."
Cons: "Did not check in or take this flight. Trip up to NJ was so bad I could not fly back. Tried to contact company and was told they could not assist in anyway. So lost ticket cost. Live and Learn. Do not fly this line."
Pros: "Very comfortable; flight crew very professional."
Cons: "Getting off late - but this was due to a storm, so I am happy that the decision was made not to take off on time."
Pros: "Everything they could control went very well."
Cons: "The flight had a lot of turbulence, but that's not their fault. I thought the pullout handled the situation well."
Pros: "Best flight for its Price. It was on time."
Pros: "didn't like anything"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed dor 10 hours."
Pros: "The fare"
Cons: "Seats don't recline. There's NOTHING complimentary not even water"
Cons: "I didn't like all the inconsistent additional fees, the reschedule, the delays, and gate swaps."
Cons: "Seats were very uncomfortable"
Pros: "flight took off on time"
Cons: "No leg room!"
Pros: "Staff was extremely helpful and friendly. Plane was very clean and more spacious than any other airline coach seats. We departed on time and arrived 15 minutes early at our destination. Flight price was hundreds of dollars cheaper and the only airline which offered non-stop service from nyc to Knoxville, TN."
Cons: "Honestly i have no complaints."
"Our flight was delayed multiple times and communication was very poor as to what the issues were or when we would get home. Were in the airport for 12 hours with no weather issues just issues with flight crew availability. Don’t understand why so many flights can be booked if this is a continuous issue?"
Cons: "Little late"
Cons: "Waiting on the plane for paperwork to be filled out. Over 45 minutes."
Pros: "Captains are amazing! Reached earlier than expected"
Cons: "I Never in my life flying again with frontier"
Pros: "The fact that i slept most of the flight"
Cons: "Well The plane was Two hours late then board it then sat there for another two hours already felt like two hours long enough that the Rent-A-Car pays were all close in Cleveland which therefore had me sit in Cleveland at the airport from 12:30 AM to 7:00 AM to wait till they reopen reimbursement would be great"
Cons: "The seats are super uncomfortable. Imagine sitting on high school bleachers for hours at a time with no where to go and stretch. The tray table is no no bigger than my cell phone so what exactly am I supposed to do with it? They no longer offer any in flight drinks due to covid but they can SELL you a water! Water should always be given for free. What if there is a medical emergency and that individual doesn't have money??? What!! Sell water but not give it out. Please. Its all a trap to get more of my money. The plane was packed full despite covid. So they can't run the drink cart but they can pack the flight to capacity. None of this even made sense. I already dread flying but all of these little inconveniences make it even less bearable."
Pros: "The crew on this flight was excellent. I generally have a good experience with them, but this crew was exceptional."
Cons: "The table tray was about the size of a postage stamp, but I can live with it to get from point A to point B"
Pros: "Kid’s friendly, we love the collectible cards and talking to a pilot:) plus- clean plane and friendly flight attendants ."
Cons: "Offer free water"
Pros: "The crew was awesome. My fiance and I did want to be traveling, but kind of had to for a family emergency. He is immunocompromised and high risk for COVID so when we noticed that someone purchased the empty seat in our row (even though half of the plane was open, come on now) we asked to switch to an empty row and the crew member assisted us without any hesitation. Granted, we were not picky and gladly sat in any empty row they gave us. Beggar's cant be choosers! Over all, another great experience with Frontier. Be nice and keep your mask on -- they are flight attendants, not adult daycare workers."
Pros: "the flight was smooth over all"
Cons: "had cabin service"
Cons: "Seats are very VERY tight"
Pros: "Crew was cool."
Cons: "We had a 7 hour delay"
Pros: "Window seating"
Cons: "More leg room without the cost"
Cons: "They scheduled 3 flights at the same time to the same carousel for bag pick up. Terrible idea"
Cons: "Rude crew that seemed to take pleasure in banging me around on the aisle seat."
Pros: "The crew was so warm and kind. The really made the trip."
Cons: "I fly often. Mostly internationally for work, but often enough domestically that I am a learned flyer. I hated that there was no complimentary anything on this airline. When checking in, I had to pay for my seat, after paying the stated price on this site (btwn 13-45 $). There was food and beverage, that you also had to pay for, no complimentary soda or nuts on this airline. Also there was a carry on baggage fee!!!! Like wtf. Overall, though the crew was great, I would NEVER fly this airline again."
Pros: "I boarded relatively quickly, but that was about the nicest thing about it."
Cons: "Well, the tray tables were about 5in x 8in and didn't slide forward, rendering it useless for basically anything. A laptop wouldn't fit anyway, but since it didn't slide out, the screen would have been tilted too far forward to properly see it as it was up against the seat and it was too unstable not to also hold my laptop while I sat there. With significantly less leg room than I've previously experienced on an economy class flight, laying down on the tray table to sleep was also impossible. When I first got on the plane, the air conditioner started and rather than feeling comfortable and less sweaty and gross, I just began to smell stale air that I was almost convinced was carbon monoxide as I was flying from Seattle and there had been smoke all around Washington due to forest fires. It was horribly uncomfortable and annoying even for sitting in coach. And I wasn't on an older or smaller airplane where I'd expect a little less concern for comfort, it seemed like it was very modern and it was a very large place. Leg room could have easily been increased by losing one to two rows of seats (seats that would most likely be empty anyway I might add). Airplanes tend not to be the most comfortable mode of travel anyway, but I would say this was the worst one."
Pros: "We took off and landed on time. The support staff was friendly. The airport in Orlando was a God awful mess so no matter what airline you were flying today out of Orlando, it would have been enough to make a priest swear We missed our flight but were rescheduled in a very timely matter by very pleasant Frontier staff."
Cons: "I absolutely hate all the fees for this and that. I started flying in the days of stewardesses who dressed up (not that a give a fig about that really) and meals were included. It's really difficult to come to terms with being charged for water. I made a mistake when booking and had a checked bag outbound and then a carry on returning which should have been a checked bag. I played hell trying to get this matter straightened around a few days before and then again while I was checking in for the flight. I finally requested to speak with someone higher up the food chain, and she managed to make things right in short order. Of course, there was no $5 refund. Why did it take 20 minutes of time to do this? In order to save us both from this type of thing in the future, I will avoid booking with Frontier. I think one has to be more organized than I to do things with a no frills airline."
Pros: "I liked the pilot who always gave us a heads up about what was going on other than that not much"
Cons: "It was a very uncomfortable flight. If i would have known about all the additional charges to save some money i would if purchased tickets with a different airline"
Pros: "The flight attendants were very nice and helpful."
Cons: "Bag check was a nightmare and the line took forever. There should be a line only for dropping bags and not assisting customers. It took a long time to get my bag at baggage claim (almost an hour). They used the same carousel as two other flights leading to frequent baggage jams. Not sure if that's their fault or the Atlanta airports."
Pros: "Airport and Cabin crew were very nice. Kayak wants me to use 50 characters but there's nothing else positive to say about the horrible experience with Frontier."
Cons: "Flight got cancelled 3 times trying to leave Ohio and weather was not an issue. Ended up leaving 4 days after I was supposed to. The people on the phone where rude when I had to call multiple times to rebook. $35 for a carry on bag too. What a joke. Will NEVER fly Frontier again. Its sad because I only used to fly them a few years back and I love the animals on the tails. This airline has truly gone to trash."
Cons: "They "down sized" the plane because the original plane had 15 extra seats. This downsized left 35+ passengers with out seats. I checked in the day before, checked in my luggage and they say anything to me about not having a seat until I reached the ticket agent during boarding process. RIDICULOUS! Then sent us to customer service where finding a new flight was not an option. So I ended up booking a different flight (on my own) with a new airlines and Frontier will only reimburse $400 which does not cover the cost of the flight. AND they Don't know where my bag is!! NOT a happy customer!"
Pros: "I wish I had something nice to say..."
Cons: "4 hour delay due to a maintenance issue that we were not made aware of until 2 hours into the delay. The staff were INCREDIBLY rude and were mocking and making fun of passengers ( I was seated in the last row and could hear EVERYTHING! Also, the crew did very little during flight time. They instead sat in the back and played inappropriate games like Never Have I Ever and Truth or Daresnd spoke about topics like Sex...mind you that there was a 9 year old little girl seated next to me. By far the worst flight experience in my 30 years of flying ."
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: "They'll rebook a canceled flight through a more competent airline."
Cons: "Delayed my 7:25am flight for 5 hours before finally canceling it. Then customer service was such a hassle to deal with in order to reroute the flight. I had to go get my baggage from baggage claim, the phone number I was given wasn't in service, I stood in the line at the front which was packed with other passengers from the flight and gate agents had a hard time because nobody was answering the phone calls. Apparently the only way to rebook is through this phone line, which is absurd. The gate agents should be able to do this from their computers. But you get what you pay for, I suppose. When the agent got through on the call, the guy on the phone claimed another phone number was where we had to call to rebook..it was the customer service number that other customers called and were redirected to the number we were on the current line after waiting on hold for 30 minutes. He argued with us for about 10 more minutes that he couldn't do it...which made me miss my chance to book the next flight out because it filled up in that time span, After running my credit card for almost $500 (fingers crossed a reimbursement actually goes through) I finally got on another flight, which of course, wasn't direct. I finally returned home at 10pm. It was supposed to be a very easy day, under 2 hour flight, that turned into 16 hours. I got a $200 voucher as well as $30 in food, but every plan I had was ruined and I spent the day in an airport. Very disappointed because airlines are so expensive, and I just needed a one-way to get home with one bag and it was a perfect deal. Everyone on that flight had very important reasons to get home and it was awful to see everyone so sad. Also, it's Christmas season...so that $500 everyone most likely lost really affects the holiday spirit. Gotta keep your company running somehow though! All I want to see is the charge for the reimbursement actually come through."
Pros: "I tried really hard, but I can't think of anything that I liked about my frontier experience."
Cons: "There was nothing about any part of this experience to like. When I made the reservation, I accidentally hit the wrong date button and did not notice until I received my email. I contacted customer service immediately, the rep. Was extremely rude and charged me an additional $200 on my ticket to move it to the next day. He charged my Card and did not make the changes. I received an email stating, no changes were made to my Itinerary, it still had the same wrong date, but my credit card had been charged the $200 fee. I called back and got a more helpful person, but was told to contact the flight insurance company, I purchased, to discuss refunding the additional charge. Not only do you pay for your bags, but you pay for your seats, your beverages, your snacks, and your mistakes. I guess that's how they manage to keep costs down. But then again, you get what you pay for!"
Pros: "What happened to me was that I was supposed to fly to a wedding in Ft Myers Florida on October 7, 2016 and then Hurricane Matthew hit Florida... I had such anxiety flying alone that I skipped the flight there and obviously the return flight as well... I am so upset with myself and I was hoping to get a partial credit or some type of voucher being that so many flights were cancelled... I would have flown had my flight been the next day or weather conditions better... I am so bummed that I lost the $370 round trip ticket as our son that I never get to see came from California to be in our neighbor boy's wedding... I was so sad I missed my flight due to weather and flight anxiety... :("
Cons: "I was sad that due to weather conditions and flight anxiety I did not feel comfortable flying and was hoping for a partial or some type of credit for a future flight but I doubt that will happen... It was my fear of traveling in awful weather and during Hurricane Matthew that made me not get on the plane... :(. My fears got the best of me and I have never done that before and lost the money for the round trip ticket..."
Cons: "Getting charge $40 both ways for my carry-on bag and getting charge for all my drink on the airplane"
Cons: "Flight was canceled first day. Next day only one flight available, and it was delayed 2 hours from 10pm to midnight. I missed the last train out from the airport where I arrived because of this delay, so had to wait another hour until 4am. Airline is awful, they cannot help you, plane resources are so limited. Not worth the couple bucks saved when regarding the insane delays. Cheap airlines are fine with no food, no extra baggage, crappy seats, I don't care. I just want to get to where I'm going !!! Reliability ! I've heard from four of my friends that Frontier has screwed them over with reliability as well. Wasn't even sure if the trip would happen after the first cancelation."
Cons: "I've never met such a rude staff. Every single attendant and ticket staff was horrific. By the time the flight ended, I heard at least four different people/families mention that the experience was so bad that they would never fly Frontier again. Everything was dirty and the Frontier workers treat us like animals. I've also never been on any other airline even spirit that made you pay for a duffel bag. By the time I paid for the small bag 60$ each way, it was more expensive than a Delta flight. I will continue to fly Spirit or Delta from now on and never again with Frontier. Horrible."
Pros: "Friendly crew/staff"
Cons: "I don't like paying for carry-on luggage, especially when I had no idea until I was about to board the plane. My seat was uncomfortable. I thought Row 5 on an Airbus 320 would have reclining seats, but to my disappointment it did not. I was surprised when the attendant informed me that most of the seats in the front front of the aircraft do NOT recline. Overall, flying Frontier reminded me of the one or two times I flew Spirit. I have avoided that airline ever since, and I will probably do the same with Frontier."
Pros: "The security line to the Frontier concourse was unbelievably long, and even though Frontier knew this, it insisted on closing the plane door right on time, at 10 minutes before departure, even though 6 non-related passengers were going to miss the flight. If they had kept the door open 2 extra minutes, all 6 passengers would have made the flight. Ultimately, the plane left 10 minutes late, so 20 minutes after the door closed. I've had enough of Frontier's inflexibility and will gladly pay a higher fare for a different airline."
Cons: "Flight and crew were fine. Disappointed about very long delay as it caused me to miss the wake for a very dear friend, which was my sole purpose of the quick trip I had booked."
Pros: "The flight was relatively short, and once we boarded we moved out pretty quickly. Bags were delivered quickly as well at the end of the flight"
Cons: "THe flight was delayed by close to two hours, but more surprising was the amount of extraunexpected money we had to spend for basics-close to $30.00 each to "pick" seats, $130.00 each for baggage (yes you have to pay for any luggage beyond one personal item like a purse), money for food, etc. There are not even basics on the lfight such as blankets, and the seats don't recline. Overall, not an airline I would choose again as the "bargain" price turns out to be full of hidden costs that weren't clearly explained upfront"
Pros: "Initial price"
Cons: "So here's the deal. I knew a decent amount about Frontier going into this flight, but seeing it with your own eyes is shocking. They basically exist to charge passengers extra money at the last minute. Combine all the unpleasantness of other airlines in one, and that's what you get. As an engineer, I appreciate innovating to bring down prices, but that is not what's happening here. It's a case study in forcing people to accept the lowest common denominator in the broken system that is air travel. I would strongly encourage you to spend the extra $$$ to do a united or similar flight, you'll feel it initially, but when you're not stuck in some derelict corner of LaGaurdia asking yourself why you cheaped out you'll be thankful."
Pros: "Flight was priced well"
Cons: "Seats very tight and uncomfortable. Flight was delayed 2 hours with no notice"
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"
Cons: "I was shocked that I had to pay $80 on top of a $312 flight to La Guardia in order to bring a carry on. Also, this is a stripped down airline now, with no drinks served and not even a package of peanuts or crackers. Nothing. The reps at the check in counter for baggage were incredibly rude, and a French man standing next to me did not understand that he'd have to pay for luggage, and as he had no credit card, he had no recourse. He was sent on his way to the gate with his bag, but then was not let on the flight with the bag he had no way to pay for!! I will never fly Frontier again."
Pros: "Frontier airlines boarded relatively smoothly and there was sufficient room for my carry-on luggage. Even though I didn't pay for a seat assignment, my wife and I were seated together. The crew was generally friendly and cooperative."
Cons: "Hidden fees are a deal-breaker for me here. They try to get you to pay for seat assignments, although you don't have to. If you don't pay for a seat assignment, there is a risk you may not be seated with the rest of your party. You do have to pay to bring a carry-on, which I didn't realize. The added cost of $40 (if you pay in advance, $55 if you forget and pay at the airport) to carry on a piece of luggage that is typically free makes this far less of a bargain than advertised. I felt misled and taken advantage of. Since we realized this the day before our flight, my wife and I shared one carry on to keep the cost down. For us, the tickets ended up costing $80 more than I realized. If we had each had our own carry on, the total added cost would be $160 which seems like quite a ripoff."
Pros: "I liked the price and the fact the flight was nonstop and relatively short."
Cons: "I rated the service poor because upon boarding the plane and sitting down, I noticed my 20 yo son somehow did not make it onto the plane. This became concerning when it became apparent that everyone had boarded and he still did not appear. I approached a flight attendant about it, letting her know that I was concerned that my son had not boarded. Her response (apparently because I was not hysterical) was "well you don't seem too concerned about it, so I won't be." I was very taken aback by this and ended up - with another flight attendant's permission - leaving the plane to find my son who it turned out was held up at the gate for a reason that was resolved."
Pros: "The flight attendant and pilot were nice and seemed to care"
Cons: "The people at the ticketing counter were talking to each other and not present with those trying to check in. The plane ticket was cheap, but then it was a surprise that I frontier charges for carry ons and on flight beverages. So it pretty much equals out. The aircraft itself was pretty ghetto and cheap feeling. There was a child on the plane playing with an electronic toy that played a most annoying song for literally the entire time of the overnight flight. I was disappointed no one who worked on the aircraft asked these parents to make this toy stop so people could sleep"
Pros: "even though we left an hour late, we still arrived at our destination on time."
Cons: "our flight left about an hour late; we were told our exit row seats would recline (but they didn't); no in-flight entertainment; very uncomfortable and couldn't sleep on the red-eye as i am able to with other airlines. also, had to pay $40 per luggage to check in (vs $45 to carry on) - however, we saved about $150 total flying frontier (bag checked included) vs other airlines. it was annoying though that we weren't able to easil add bags to our itinerary upon checkout on this site. BIGGEST disappointment was that frontier did not participate in TSA-pre check, which i suppose was fine for this flight since we left an hour late, anyway."
Pros: "Crew was nice, but very uptight about wearing a seatbelt, not standing in line to use the bathroom, not changing seats, etc."
Cons: "I booked tickets with this airline for the first time because prices were significantly cheaper than with other airlines. However, I didn't realize I would have to pay $45 for carry on luggage, pay extra if I did want a seat in the middle, and even pay for soft drank! After factoring in all those things, it would have been a lot cheaper to use a different airline. Plus, it was by far the most uncomfortable airplane I have ever been on. No leg room, small seats that do not recline and have no cushion. Terrible experience!"
Pros: "Non its terrible! There's mosquito on the plane. Its hot. Seats cannot be inclined at all. And its dirty. There are drunk weird people too that the security doesnt seemed to care."
Cons: "It was late! And its ok for planes to be late it happens but this airline company is horrible. They informed as too late via email that its going to be delayed that i decided to take it easy for a while its going to be 2hrs delayed from 10pm was moved to 12:08. But then when i called them they said to come in early anyway coz it might change. What the heck! What if i took a nap since they informed people its going to be 2 hrs delayed from normal sched and then i miss my flight??? Just for them to say just come in early anyway they're just too unprofessional and horrible. Il never fly here again."
Cons: "The pilot was awesome but the crew was rude. We received notification that the plane was delayed and then 30 minutes later it was updated to the original take off time. People were late because of the notification that the plane will be late and we ended up leaving late anyway. At no point during booking my flight was i made aware that i would have to pay extra for my seat and carry on. The fact that you have to pay for something to drink on a dehydrating plane, is RIDICULOUS. I will never take Frontier again. This airline is joke."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled at 7:30pm for an 8:20 take off. To begin to say how unprofessional and rude the entire ticket counter staff and GM were would take me all day! The level of concern was non existent in wanting to help the passengers get to there destination. Trying to rebook people on a flight 2 days later to me does not constitute making qualifying arrangements. We were given expired dinner vouchers (listed dinner time from 5-8) at 9:15pm to go eat in the airport.... Well I'm not sure if people are aware but when you don't have a flight you are not allowed into the concourse. I also had to repeatedly say that I live 20 minutes away and I do not need a hotel. I didn't have anyone to pick me up and when I asked for a voucher for a cab ride they said they were not offering it even though it's listed on the paper they had given us they offered hotel, food and ground transportation vouchers. At that point I could not deal with the ticket counter any longer. I had to call every place I booked and try and get a refund since my vacation was obviously not happening. Then I called the website listed number for frontier and had to argue with them over what was being done. This whole situation took everyone 3 hours to deal with. I can honestly say there were many irritated customer by this point. Even the few that "understood" we're not so understanding by this point. My flight and baggage were refunded. And a $200 future ticket was issued. But that does not excuse the fact that my vacation was ruined and cancelled bc of frontier. I also lost money on this entire ordeal bc the flight I was coming back on was a different airline. I'm still waiting on a return call from someone at frontier airlines since Wednesday 5/25/2016."
Cons: "We were told the flight was canceled due to weather. We were also told the next flight out from Cleveland wasn't until the following Wednesday. We gave other airport options for departure and arrival and still we were told we wouldn't be able to fly in until Wednesday. I understand that flying into Denver wasn't an option due to no fault of the airline, however I am sure with the multiple airports we could have flown out of and flown into we should have been able to make the trip before the following Wednesday, 4 days later. Also we had no idea how much extra the baggage cost was, or that there even was one."
Pros: "Flying home on Southwest."
Cons: "Your hidden fees for every bag and pre seating charges were ridiculous. My flight home was cancelled due to weather in Denver. The next flight you had available was 5 days later. The customer service by Ambre at the Frontier Ticketing Desk in Las Vegas was rude. I will never fly with Frontier again. Your airline will be out of business soon if you don't make some changes."
Pros: "The friendly service!! It's always nerve-wracking for me & they were friendly & helpful from the check-in process to saying good-bye! The rates are wonderful too! A little disappointing that the rates went up for checked bags :/"
Cons: "Rates went up for checked bags since my flight JUST LAST WEEK! "/"
"Plane was over an hour late taking off and then when we landed we had to wait on the tarmac for 45 minutes."
"We had a 7hr delay because of under staffing and we were short a pilot"
"Everything was smooth. Great communication"
"Both my flights were delayed. From either paperwork or waiting for crew. Gate changed twice. Wondering why they give times and gates. Seems nobody knows what's going on."
Cons: "Terrible seats, but you know that! That’s all anyone talks about is how terrible and uncomfortable the seats are."
Pros: "The loading was taking along time"
Cons: "More organized"
Cons: "Me robaron el dinero"
Pros: "Getting home"
Cons: "Everything flight was delayed no compensation y’all took 94 dollars from me and won’t give it back"
Pros: "Was comfortable the sits it cut be better, the crew was amazing."
Cons: "Free snacks and coffe!!!!"
Cons: "Boarding officers need to smile a lot more"
Cons: "The airlines cancelled the flight an hour before. Then only offered a refund or a flight 24hrs later."
Cons: "Everything seemed to go well until my daughter had to go to the bathroom, we were sitting in the front area but they blocked it cause the pilot was in the bathroom. Which was fine, but a few minutes past and still nothing the she said you can go to the back so i got up and she yelled maam “ you need to sit down” and then she proceeded to speak in Spanish as i didnt understand english. So I explained firmly that I u derstood her but she just told us to go the back and then to sit so which one is it."
Pros: "Uneventful trip and arrived slightly early."
Cons: "The flight was packed! No empty seats between people to heed the Covid-19 suggestions! First flight since Covid and not happy! Plane was out of refreshments and only had water"
Pros: "We left on time"
Cons: "The whole row behind me was super loud during most of the flight yet the crew didn’t say anything. At one point they started ordering alcohol and chilling like they were in a bbq. One of them standing and chilling with her drink. Laughing super loud, the guy behind me kicking my seat again and again cause spirit has no space and of course there wasn’t a choice to be moved cause in the middle of a pandemic the flight was packed!"
Pros: "Nothing was enjoyable except the price, but JetBlue it ten times better for only a tiny bit more."
Cons: "The cabin was out of control. People were running around, cursing, not wearing masks. The crew did nothing about it. The seats were wildly uncomfortable. There was no food, no entertainment, no comfort. I will not be flying Spirit again unless they're my only option."
Pros: "The crew was fine. The seats wear not comfortable"
Cons: "During Covid they did not take temperatures before boarding the plane. This should have been done."
Cons: "The plane was not clean. It was an 8:15 am flight. It should have been pristine."
Pros: "The crew was good"
Cons: "More leg room"
Pros: "ive been emailing spirit for two weeks now about getting a refund/credit."
Cons: "if they actually responded."
Cons: "No ridiculous bag fees."
Cons: "They have their own random process of checking in, boarding etc. If you try to interact with a person in any way they charge you for it. That's not how it works for other airlines, and their communications isn't particularly clear about this so charges are surprising"
Pros: "flight was on time and no delays, would use again for short trip"
Cons: "the price for baggage and not much space to move around"
Pros: "Didn't have to pay for seats but still able to sit with travel companion if booked together."
Cons: "Pay for everything on flight, including water."
Pros: "Finally taking off and landing"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours. Had multiple gate changes. Had to go through security twice due to the gate charges. The petty charges for seats and fees for carry-on bags is ridiculous. The seats are cramped and don't decline. I will never fly Spirit again."
Cons: "Spirit isn’t an airline for frequent travelers. The aircraft is always delayed to depart due to beionh last in line after reputable airlines, files the have check in counters in popular airports or located on bottom levels, not accommodating for travelers that missed flights, and last but not least their luggage weight requirements are extremely low compared to all other airlines. The normal requirement is 50lbs and Spirit is 40 so one checked bag is $70. By the time you pay for every single detail you could be on a Delta Airline with complementary Biscotti and water!"
Cons: "Spirit airlines changed gates at the last minute and 10 people including me missed the flight ... then came thing happened again ... was stranded at the airport for 24 hours and lost my hotel reservation ... worst travel experience ever"
Pros: "At the gate the staff member noted that I had asked for a wheel chair & sought me out. Then she proceeded to find Someone to trade seats with me because I was assigned Row 30. I was then given a 3rd row seat. Since I have some difficulty walking this saved me from having To walk the entire length of the plane. The plane was completely full. I truly appreciate the kindness your staff member Showed to me. I only wish that I knew her name Also the plane arrived 30 minutes early at my Destination."
Cons: "In checking in online it took over 30 minutes to do So because I kept getting the message that no seats Were availble. I finally called the help number & it Continued to give me the same message even when I followed her instructions Finally she told me that My browser was incompatible with your system. I had To sign on to a new browser before I could complete the check in. I also could not add my TSA number to my ticket. The Staff member had to do this. I do not like the fact that I can’t even get a glass Of plain top water on the plane without paying For it I also didn’t like the fact that a person I spoke with Paid $69 one way & I paid 5 times this amount For my ticket."
Pros: "Boarding was easy"
Cons: "Not roomy, on the returning flight the person behind me kicked my chair the entire flight on top of being surrounded by children on the flight there and back. They should at least let you know you're surrounded by crying babies I would have never booked or paid more to not sit around it. I understand people have to travel with kids but it was my only vacation wouldn't fly spirit again. On top of I called spirit airlines to help extend my flight and the guy couldnt/wouldn't help me told me to check online, but their system that day was not cooperating"
Pros: "Nothing. I hate everything there is about Spirit Airlines"
Cons: "It started with the employee at the ticket counter who could not have been ruder if she tried. I have dealt with Comcast and all of the other "nightmare" customer support companies and she is still the worst person I have ever spoke with. If I was her employer, I would have fired her ten times over. It all went downhill from there. Spirit Airlines is the equivalent of the Greyhound Bus. It is gross, the employees suck, and there is not a single redeeming quality about them. I hate traveling Spirit and really regret purchasing that ticket!"
Pros: "Didn't die."
Cons: "A passenger vomited prior to take off. She went to the restroom then was taken back to her seat, where she got sick again. The Purser/Senior Atttendant did not handle well in my opinion, by allowing the clearly ill elderly woman who was disoriented and confused back to her seat and in her "freaking out" reaction (her words). After the woman vomited the second time, they had her sit in a different seat up front, spreading the possible pathogens and uncleanliness to more rows. The woman vomited a 3rd time in this new seat. The woman was FINALLY removed from the plane and her former dear mates were moved to the row up front where the woman was sick for the 3rd time. (The crew who came on to clean the "biohazard" used a dirty mop and did not appear to use any bleach solution. The Senior flight attendant said they were going to seal off the bathroom (good idea) bc the elderly woman, according to the Spirit attendants, made a big mess and it was a "biohazard". Cut to later in the flight after a 2 hour delay and then the sick woman- where Spirit attendants allowed many passengers to use this restroom -bar potentially exposing them to pathogens. The Purser was self-confessed overly dramatic about the entire situation. I can't imagine how she would have behaved in an escalated emergency situation."
Pros: "We were back in Cleveland early on July 25."
Cons: "Being almost 3 hours late and having to get an Uber since son couldn't come to airport so late with his working the next day."
Cons: "I thought I was getting a cheap flight. Wrong! By the time I added in the cost of checking a bag (even pre-check in), I was pretty much in the same ballpark as other flights. If I wanted to select my seat, that would have made it even more. The seats were hard and did not recline at all and I was on a 4.5 hour red-eye flight. There wasn't any food available to purchase. On top of everything, I had to change my flight, which I did on Spirit.com. I purchased my bag check at the same time. When I got to the counter, my bags were paid, but my flight was not changed. I had to pay to change it at the counter (fortunately, there was room on the flight). They would not take any responsibility, just kept telling me it was my fault since I booked my flight incorrectly in the first place. Terrible airline, will not use again."
Pros: "Attendants on plane and at gate counter were good in the turmoil"
Cons: "Flight coming and going we're delayed several hours including the first flight of the day.....how does that happen with perfect weather? Suitcase was lost on return trip and after 3 days finally was sent delivered to destination airport for pick up. They would deliver it to home but could not give a specific time, worse then the cable company so just will pick it up directly. Also the customer service folks in the baggage area speak very little English, have no customer skills and And frankly have no understanding of how their processes work. Also with the delay notification to email received over 1000 email notifications... must be a system glitch in their system. Will never use this airline again in life!"
Pros: "It was a nice price for what it got me on trips. Everyone is always super expensive."
Cons: "Almost everything was horrible. Seats are too close for my long legs, and its like I was sitting on stone bricks for hours. Baggage is a scary thing. Lots of places have different spirit sizes. While Orlando gives you a back pack and small suitcase, Newark gives you one bag. If its more the humiliate you and put it all in a trash bag to go home. Fix this please."
Pros: "I am usually able to find something positive about an experience and have traveled much so I understand that some things come up with air travel that cannot be helped. But, there is nothing positive to report."
Cons: "From the delay in Houston on 6/15 on our outbound flight to the delay on 6/18 on our return flight, customer service was poor and Spirit Airline employees - whether at the airport or on t he other end of the 1 -800 number - were not articulate, did not communicate effectively nor did they seem to care about their customers concerns or comfort. You might want to rethink what you could offer to your customers in the event of a delay, esp one that is not weather related. Offering something as simple as a free bottle of water & bag of pretzels to everyone once on board, could go a long way to thanking everyone for their wait. As well, your seats are too close together for comfort. I will not be flying on Spirit Airlines again which is a shame as I have a niece & family in Miami to whom I plan to travel to see."
Cons: "Unable to check in on line. Spirit web site problem. Had to get boarding pass at a kiosk before the flight. That made me passenger number 137. Would have been bumped off the plane if there had not been any "no shows" since Spirit boards by the passenger number. Highest can get bumped and my number would have been lower if I was able to check in the night before. Not my fault. This is a risk I can't accept."
Cons: "In addition to one hour delay that created so much inconvenience, the performance of the flight attendants were not acceptable. Non of them checked the security aspects of the flight before departure including seat belts or not letting people keep their back packs between the legs instead of putting them under the seat. Furthermore, my seat was beside a person who needed two seats instead of one seat and all the time during fligt I was in an extreme discomfort. I talked to the flight attendants and asked them if possible to give me another seat but they were not willing to help much.Totally I am really disappointed with boarding+comfort and the crew. I will definitely try my best not to fly with Spirit airlines anymore."
Pros: "Nothing at all."
Cons: "I usually fly with JetBlue but decided to try to save a few bucks on this last minute trip. What a mistake!! Their luggage fees are extremely high. Everyone at the terminal were complaining about their fees. For what I paid to check in my bags, I could of gotten a flight to the airport that I originally wanted to fly into and still save money. It is so sad when even the Spirit Airline employees say that " That's how they get you...with the baggage fees." They give you a great deal on the flight but snatch your money with their baggage fees. NEVER AGAIN!!"
Pros: "I guess I don't like anything that spirit has - except for the price which I finally disliked"
Cons: "I have my flight at 9.30 AM and I was at the airport by 8.30 AM. I had to find out where the check in counter is and I was at the check in counter at 8.40. By the time my turn came, it was 8.50 and the agent said I am late as the gate closes 8.45 AM. There is no mention in the itinerary that the gate closes 30 minutes before departure and I was there 45 minutes before the take off. I didn't get a next flight. Now, I can't even cancel the return flight and I lost all the money for the trip. I called the customer service and they said they cant do anything except to book another ticket the next day. Why do they think I would ever travel with them again!!"
Pros: "Only thing I can say about this airlines is we made it safely to our destination."
Cons: "We were shocked to find out the extra charges for one carry on! Seats did not recline and we're practically metal and fabric. No padding. I'd rather have paid more and at least got some comfort."
Cons: "Very rude flight attendants like I understand you guys work all day and I'm sure it gets old flying back and forth and I bet you have terrible customers but I am not one of those so to be rudely disrespected and ignored was truely hurtful. I was ignored over and over again when they were in the back talking when the no seatbelt sign was on there was no reason they couldn't come in and asked me if I needed something and it was like this for the whole four hour flight. Then when I got up and went to the back of the cabin they got upset with me for apologizing for interrupting them been enquiring about my question she stuck her hand up in the air and told me that she was talking. Very rude. I know the flight is cheap but next time I think ill just pay extra for politness. :'("
Pros: "The main flight attendant who did the announcements was a hilarious, irreverent funny guy who actually made me pay attention to all of his announcements for the first time in years. The Southwest flight attendants are sometimes cute, but this guy was HILARIOUS. Made the trip a true delight. Best thing about Spirit airlines is this one guy. The seats were comfortable and pretty spacious for airlines today."
Cons: "Spirit's "no frills" gimmick is really just annoying because by the time you get the things you NEED, all of which you have to separately pay for on Spirit, you have paid more than you would on any other airline. And every time you have to pay for another dang thing, you feel like you are being scammed just a little bit more. I try so hard to avoid Spirit airlines but sometimes it's the only way to get where I need to go. Before I click the "book" ticket, I add up all the extras I know are coming to make sure it REALLY is the best fare."
Cons: "I logged on spirit.com the day before to check in, print my boarding pass, and update my contact info for flight updates. I was not once contacted via email or text that my flight had been delayed three times. It was supposedly mechanical. Once aboard 5 hours late, we sat in the hot sun for another 45 minutes before moving. The pilot came over the speakers once at cruising altitude to say it would be another 2hours and 35minutes (the flight attendants had just repeatedly announced 1hour 25minutes). It was a mess and seemed incredibly unorganized."
Pros: "Nice crew, easy flight"
Cons: "Over an hour late"
Pros: "I liked the fact that the plane did not crash you know i originally type the overall rating as poor only it took to long to load on the computer - i then chose a better classification and it loaded instantaneously. I certainly would have hesitations in sending a child or elderly person traveling alone granted the seat belt sign went on and an elderly gentleman was making his way from the front of the plane to the back bathroom - the female flight attendant told him to get to his seat or be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law - have we come to this in our society or is this the spirit of Spirit Airlines."
Cons: "the airlines treated the flight attendants as bar maids and their only were interest was in swiping a credit card. everything on this air lines cost money - carry on baggage, water soda i wondered what a vomit bag would have cost. Plan ahead as you have to ask in advance for a bag. the flight left late and arrived late. Passengers could get dehydrated with no water on a long (more and a few hours) flight. with everything costing money; it appears cheap - Is Spirit Airlines also being cheap on the maintenance. I am sure you are not - this is a rhetorical question."
Pros: "Once you get over the fact that your ticket only gets you a seat, the airline was great. The plane was like new, clean and roomy. The boarding process was efficient. I felt very safe."
Cons: "At first you feel like its a "low budget" airline and that they maybe cutting corners where it counts like safety. But that was not the case. Although I get the concept, I would have liked to at least printed my boarding pass at the gate without a cost or have the boarding pass sent to my phone. Also, the ticketing counter line was VERY slow in Atlanta. Be aware that even a carry-on cost money and if you think you are going to slid by with a slightly larger bag, it could cost you $100 at the gate and losing your seat and being on standby."
Pros: "The flight attendants were pretty great."
Cons: "As soon as I sat down and figured out I couldn't move my seat back I knew I had entered a nightmare. The guy sharing my row was a selfish jerk who kept putting his items on the middle seat to claim "his territory". There were 3 babies on the red eye flight who took turns crying, so almost the whole flight was speckled with little baby outbursts of emotion. And the amount of leg room provided is just absolutely ridiculous for anything longer than an hour flight! I'm certain the CEO of the company that runs Spirit Airlinesflies first class on another airline and never flies crappy old Spirit!"
Pros: "The seats don't recline."
Cons: "They were borderline rude about letting me change seats despite my medical situation and even though there were plenty of seats elsewhere available it was a hassle to move. Since when can airlines put pets under your seat for whole flights without notifying you till after take off?"
Pros: "The plane only left a half an hour late, yet still managed to make it to the destination over an hour late!"
Cons: "I get it, Spirit is a low-cost operation. But does it have to show in everything they do? All of the staff seemed rather disinterested in the customers, to the point where they weren't sure if someone had sneaked onto the flight! That sure got them hopping. Unfortunately, it took half an hour to sort out. In the meantime, there we all alwere, stuck in our too small seats with their too little leg room. Once we left the gate, it became evident that the flight crew were not just indifferent to the passengers, they were passive-aggressively antagonistic about us. I mean, everyone has a bad day now and then, but the whole crew? Seems like it could be a systematic issue with this airline. I've flown cheap before, and you get what you ou for, but I didn't sign up to feel as if I were despised."
Pros: "Clean airplane."
Cons: "I feel cheated and deceived. A checked bag costs $50. A carry on costs $55. If you don't realize this before you go the gate it goes from $65 to $100. The counter crew was rude, and the boarding crew in Cleveland was shaking down passengers to be sure they were not "cheating", stopping the boarding process to check passenger receipts. Getting an assigned seat, an extra $15 per person. And there was absolutely no leg room for that extra $15 (which I paid for). These costs should be shared upfront - basically every ticked is $50-$65 more than the website shows. I will not fly this airline again."
