Pros: Took care of us, gave us snacks and drinks, and pillows and blankets
Cons: Plane almost caught up in flames. Gas was filled through the entire plane. Had a big scare.
Pros: Crew was great.
Pros: Crew was very rude and did not follow actual baggage policies regarding a passenger’s batteries in their bag that fit just fine in the overhead.
Cons: Crew could maybe re-read policy and use their logic to apply it correctly.
Pros: 1st class flight attendant sat through the entire flight (except for offering drinks and food early in flight). There were passengers NOT wearing masks through the flight but she wouldn't know that since she never left her seat
Cons: just about everyting
Cons: Nothing it was very nice
Cons: Boarding is so disorganized. Really Group 9 is just a way to make the passengers wish they had chosen a different airline.
Pros: The seat next to me was empty
Cons: I downloaded the app and followed the directions to watch a movie but when I got on board I host the connection and not get back in . It would not allow me to download anything
Pros: I used my miles to get the tickets.
Cons: None of the crew smiled. They seemed like TSA agents that wanted to stop us from coming in. They seemed mad that we were using their airline.
Pros: On time
Cons: Some social distance inside the plain would’ve great
Cons: If they can’t serve beverages. Can we be allowed o e water bottle through security?
Cons: IFE was not streaming movies, WiFi on but not loading
Cons: Crew could have been nicer and everything could have been on time
Cons: the 2 stewardesses disappeared as soon as the flight was in the air. i upgraded to business class in what was a huge waste of money. the fact that they do not make alcohol available in business class is pure laziness, and these people are loving it. keep in mind that you can have water juice and pop. i was given the water i asked for after take off, and then she promptly disappeared for the entire 3 hours. she only returned when i pushed the call button. not good.
Cons: Spacing people out until this covid is over
Cons: I'm not happy at all i lost my check bag and all my church close is in it
Cons: Armrests were broken. No outlets or USB ports to charge.
Cons: Did not communicate delays. Boarding was all at once without special needs people first No communication with passengers about delays at the gate.
Cons: All was good.
Cons: The airline needs to board and deboard by group number.
Pros: The crew was amazing. They kept us updated.
Cons: Not wearing masked, but I understand the requirement to wear one.
Cons: In-flight movies were broken the entire flight. There was no way to charge a phone or laptop despite the 3+ hour flight time. My 45 minute hopper from RDU to CLT had both plug and USB. Additionally AA does not offer free messaging.
Cons: The plane we needed for our flight arrived really late so our flight was then of course delayed.
Cons: The seat went back three inches. I was about to spasm after 4 hours. No movement whatsoever. The flight crew could have moved me but I suppose they were told not to as I had a cheap ticket.
Cons: Flight was delayed so had to drive to connecting city just to make it home.
Pros: Comfortable flight. New plane
Pros: Great crew again, basic aircraft but comfortable economy seats.
Pros: I liked the entertainment. Seats were ultimately uncomfortable. Not helped by the backs being loose.
Pros: David took really could care of our cabin. Likes his cheerful attitude. He was excellent. Hope you let him know.
Pros: Legroom was great!
Pros: The help on getting on the plane and the pleasant staff on the flight
Cons: The food
Pros: Easy checking with great Customer Care. Made my trip enjoyable. Will use again in July...
Cons: the drink service came through pretty late in the flight. i asked for hot tea. a few minutes later i was provided with extremely hot tea. about 10 minutes later it was a temperature i could tolerate drinking. about 1/3 through the drink i was required to throw away my drink because we were preparing for landing. i understand that, fine. bad timing. it’s just a drink. what was unsatisfactory is that the attendant rudely commented “you have to give us your drink. it’s not that long of a flight.” the comment made me feel like i had done something wrong even though i had just been drinking my tea as soon as it was at a drinkable temperature. i was not impressed with the attendant. also, there weren’t any biscotti cookies.
Pros: On time departure & arrival.
Cons: My checked bag, which l paid $25.00 for, didn’t make it on the flight to Pittsburgh. It got there on another flight at 7:30 pm Monday night but no one from American Airlines did anything about trying to get it to me until 11:30 pm. As a result, while l stayed at a hotel only 30 miles from the airport, my bag wasn’t delivered until 2:00 am on Tues, more than 8 hours after l got there. And their website for supposedly checking on lost luggage, aa.com/bag status, is next to useless. It gives no useful information. Use the 800 # but state you want to talk with a human when answering the questions in their phone tree. I’ve had other experiences on AA over the last few years that lead me to question their commitment to customer service. I’ll be avoiding American Airlines as a travel option where other alternatives are available.
Pros: The plane was newer, drinks are available. Seat only reclines half an inch or so so get ready for that.
Cons: Crew on aa is the worst bunch of entitled fools, almost as horrendous as united.
Pros: The flight personnel was upbeat and friendly and we were on time. I was very glad I made the connection
Cons: That we were not offered even water. I was very thirsty from my run from gates B 13 to Gate E25
Pros: Good serice,
Cons: Good service to switch flight pattern from greenville to new bern but still a delay that cause a 2 flight connection. Lots of on-line issues with check-in, overall a stressful day, hopefully it will all work out!
Cons: I can't rate it because they canceled my entire itinerary without so much as an email. I did not take my flight to Wilmington via my original flight. I had to book another flight because the change fees were too expensive. I did not know that my return flight to Denver had been canceled until I was checking in a few hours before my flight. I was told my ticket had no value. Awesome! It really stings that I then had to book a new return flight, and because I am a teacher who makes about $23,000 a year, I had to book the cheapest flight, which was with American. I do not plan on giving them any of my hard-earned money in the future if I can help it.
Pros: The plane was sleek and clean. I had a good amount of room even in coach!
Pros: Flight was good overall , free pretzels were tasty. Drink service on point.
Cons: Crew came off as annoyed the whole time. Glad I didn't pay the $$ to upgrade my seat.
Cons: Unexplained delay in leaving but only arrived about 10 min later than scheduled. Took an hour from pulling into the gate for bags to arrive though which caused me to miss my shuttle. Never had to wait more than 15 min for any other airline at DIA.
Cons: They did not check the toilets before we left so we were diverted to St. Louis and I arrived in charlotte 3 hours late
Pros: Chairs were very comfy and wider than some airlines.
Cons: Crew not overly friendly and not very attentive, and there were lots of empty seats so there wasn't much excuse. Also, I had an issue with the plane. I think no screens on a cross-country flight is not good business. Not everyone is savvy with go-go inflight. And if there are no screens, could there at least be outlets? I was so tired after my Paris flight and wanted to chill with some go-go entertainment, but my battery was low and there were no outlets. I know not all flights can have these luxuries, but if the flight is over five hours, I think it should be better equipped.
Pros: Crew on flight to Charleston was nice
Cons: I was supposed to make the trip from BNA to CHS at 2:30, we were delayed over 1.5 hours, making me miss this flight by 5 mins. Then I was put on 10pm flight which was cancelled! They couldn't get me to HHH until 6pm the following day. I would have missed my entire conference. The closest they could get me was a 10pm flight to charleston, then I had to rent (AND PAY FOR) a car and drive 2 hours to HHH in the middle of the night. The customer service people were less than helpful. They aren't allowed to help you make car reservation. My flight on the way back from HHH to BNA was a similar story. Thankfully my connecting flight was delayed an hour or there was no way I would have made it.
Pros: I really like the crew on this flight, they were very polite and very friendly.
Cons: Boarding again same comment as above. Comfort was good because I had paid for an upgrade which I actually thought I was paying for the international flight but found out it was actually for the Charlotte flight which was a surprise it was not very clear from the tool. So hence the Comfort was great on this flight. But the tool needs to make it much more clear as to what you are selecting the upgrade for. Food, there has got to be something else out there other than pretzels, I understand why we do not have peanuts, but a little bit more variety would be very nice. I understand there's a cost tractor, but often pretzels tend to be fairly stale. Short flights entertainment.
Cons: The customer service from AA representitives in the airport was completely unnacceptable and the absolute worst service I have recieved in an airport to date! One incident during this trip was as follows: When arriving in Charlotte and running to catch my connecting flight, I arrived as the lady at the desk was closing the door, she looked at me and rolled her eyes. When I went up to the desk along with the other passengers arriving from the same flight as me the AA representative said "Hurry up , I want to go home!! At a point I'm just going to cut you off and that will be it!" She was of no help to me in anyway amd was forced tonstay the night in charlotte ; Normally this would not have been such a big deal, However I am on emergency leave from the Navy rushing home because I have a very serious family emergency, that representitive was very lucky I held my temper! From now on thanks to the poor unproffessional customer service I received I will no longer be flying American Airlines!
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.
Cons: Delayed for 4 hours. No honest apology
Pros: Quick boarding. A bit of personality from pilot
Cons: The delay at gate was said to be 10 minutes- no update for at least 30. Almost an hour waiting for gate
Pros: Nothing everything was smooth
Cons: Nothin g
Cons: Website is still slow to update trip delays, not a problem today though!
Pros: Crew was very helpful Everything was on time
Cons: Very bumpy ride (not anyone's fault) Very uncomfortable seats
Cons: Covid travel. Had us board an hour before take off and the back half of the plane was 100% full. Every seat including middle seats. 15 min before take off they allowed passengers to take empty seats and spread out.
Cons: Absolutely GREAT!!!
Cons: Seats are uncomfortable
Pros: Fast boarding, early arrival
Cons: Snack offerings
Cons: Reclining seats would be great!!
Pros: Met expectations
Cons: Met expectations
Pros: Crew was friendly, boarding process was easy, and the aisles are spacious
Cons: The seats do not recline and are not comfortable. Drinks and snacks are not complimentary.
Pros: There was nothing outstanding really
Cons: It’s a low cost airline, so expectations are very low. Plane was very dirty because it just keeps on hopping back and forth without any cleaning service it seems
Cons: You really need to install jet ports at Punta Gorda. We sat on tarmac for almost two hours due to rain and lightning in the 5 mile radius. Would have avoided this delay with a jet port.
Pros: We had about a 45 minute weather delay but those things can't be helped. The Captain kept us informed and he flew like superman getting us through all that crazy wind coming into Las Vegas. The plane was new and clean, the crew was great. Love that wide aisle...it eliminates that sardine feeling!!
Pros: The plane, the crew...
Cons: Seats wider
Cons: it was very hard to hear the stewardess
Cons: The seats were a bit cramped but I suppose most are these days
Pros: The flight attendants, the space on the plane, the prompt departure and arrival!
Cons: Media has not been reflective of my great experience.
Cons: The flight was delayed 30 minutes
Pros: Flight left early and was at destination 30 minutes earlier!
Cons: On the return trip, I had to wait 30 minutes for my luggage.
Cons: my Luggage did not make it to Reno.
Pros: somehow after waiting on tamarac for half hour, we still got to Asheville, destination, on time.
Cons: boarding in the rain, areas to check your bag and check in were so crowded you couldn't even find a proper line calling out names, some of the voices couldn't be heard no one available to answer questions what line a person should get in.som
Cons: The flight was delayed by hours, with no explanation given. It was coming from Florida, with no bad weather in between. It caused us to arrive at 1 am.
Pros: Getting off the bus!
Cons: 2.00 for water! Overpriced everything! Crew was not nice. Kindness goes a long way. Not for this crew impatient and just rude to other passengers. We pay good money to ride on the horror bus!
Cons: parking my car 2 weeks in Asheville Long term was $96. I should have gone to Charlotte, parked at my friend's house and paid AA the same rate for a nicer seat and cabin leg room. a la carte pricing ran my bill up even with NO checked luggage. Asheville doesn't have a shuttle service for the long-term parking.
Pros: Friendly staff
Cons: Last minute delay due to a plane malfunction. Was told very last minute. Seemed like there were no quick resolutions in play. Had to wait over three hours to fly out, doesnt that entail compensation by law?
Cons: 15 minutes waiting for luggage—still none out.
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: friendly helpful staff. on time. safe.
Cons: my suitcase went to the WRONG destination. very inconvenient and expensive. also plane interior was pretty shabby which made me wonder about the engines, mechanical etc.
Cons: I attempted to check in online and was unable to do so. Bad app.
Cons: It was raining when we landed and we were told the guy didn't want to come out in the rain to open the door so we were stuck on the plane for a while. Being Florida, it rains. If it's your job to pen a plane door, I would think it's reasonable you do it in the rain sometimes. Then up to the passengers on board whether or not they want to get out of the plane when it's raining.
Cons: Seat is uncomfortable
Pros: Direct flight to my Destination
Cons: Rental car I paid for on Allegiant website didn't include $50 in airport and sales taxes making it look like the Allegiant rentals were about the same as renting directly from rental car companies. Problem is that Allegiant didn't include taxes in the quote or amount I paid online. Surprise when I got to my destination and was told it would be $50 more. Alamo agent said I wasn't the first person to have that problem. Then on return my bag was damaged and was told I could place a claim at the ticket counter. It would have been helpful to have an agent there or a way to contact an agent. No such luck. After bag charges, poor service and hidden fees Allegiant isn't really a great deal.
Pros: Great flight. On time. Easy on. Easy off. And amazing fares.
Cons: Everything great
Pros: Flight went smooth
Cons: I checked into my flight with luggage to check in. The lady behind the counter said I could not check my luggage that the only way for it to get on the plane was to take it through the TSA checkpoint. They confiscated everything in my bag that was over 3oz which was quite a bit of stuff hence the reason why I was trying to check it in. I will not be flying Allegiant air again.
Pros: other airline seats are concave, forcing my back in to a painful posture. I'm 5'2", 120 lbs, so I'm not the normal body; but I just can't imagine who finds concave comfortable. Thank you Allegiant for a chair with a more-flat back.
Cons: I was surprised with the carryon fee and wondered if I would have to pay fees to use the toilet. I didn't use it, so I don't know.
Pros: Great service and very clean plane. Staff did everything to accommodate everyone's needs.
Cons: There was a lot more turnulance than expected which could have made for our shaky landing but the pilot did a great job regardless.
Pros: It's convenient and inexpensive for one of my regular destinations. Though, over the years, I've experienced a few cranky employees at the Punta Gorda location. Just the opposite in Asheville, where friendly was apparently invented.
Pros: The crew was plesant and helpful.
Cons: The flight was delayed 35 mins. Then we couldnt get luggage when we arrived because of lighting. We were told to go one place and our luggage was taken somewhere else.
Pros: Nothing. We were scheduled to fly back to Vegas at 7:07 then delayed to 8:30 then 10 pm then 11:25 pm now 1:15 am. This is unbelievable, unacceptable and ridiculous! And I have to work the next day. This is unacceptable! I just received another update that now we're leaving at 1:45 am . Please do not, again do not use Allegheny EVER again!!
Cons: So many delays. This airline is unreliable, unprofessional! Ridiculous! Please read my comments above. Do not use Allegiant!
Pros: Best flight for its Price. It was on time.
Pros: We were supposed to have boarded for 5:00, flight was at 6pm. They were missing 1 crew member and could board the plane. She showed up, then they made a announcement that the Oakland flight will be delayed till 8:10 takeoff. I was able to get on a flight to Stockton Airport without problem. They wouldnt tell me what was wrong, and i didnt want to chance that it was the last dlight to Oakland and went with Stockton. The flight was good, you have to pay for your water.
Cons: They would tell me the problem with the plane.
Cons: Delayed 5 hours!
Cons: Seats were very uncomfortable
Pros: I understand the need to make a profit but comfort is probably the most important aspect of any flight......
Cons: Min. 40lbs when others are at 50lbs ..... even 2 free suitcases. I understand the need to make a profit but comfort is probably the most important aspect of any flight......
Cons: They overcharge for bags and their weight limit is only 40 pounds. They leave the desk and hour before take off which doesn't help people who are running late. They charge you to print out your boarding pass. They don't even send the boarding pass through email, you have to download the app. Overall horrible customer service. When call for customer service you can't even get a human representative. I missed my flight and they didn't even have another flight to to accommodate me to get to my destination and no one at the front desk to talk to.
Pros: On time. Courteous stsgg. Great price.
Cons: All was great
Pros: I made it to my destination
Cons: It’s Frontier so it’s not supposed to be amazing. Not having to pay for a drink of water would have been nice though..
Pros: The crew was ok The seat was ok
Cons: The seats could be a bit bigger
Pros: No glitches —- everything ran smoothly.
Cons: My KTN was incorrect and Frontier was unable to correct.
Pros: The crew was friendly and gave clear instructions.
Cons: I miss the cookies.
Cons: No problems. Just a tough time to fly.
Cons: An on time flight. Getting enough fuel for the flight before leaving the gate then realizing we didn’t have enough fuel for the flight plan.
Pros: Crew was amazing. Flight was good. Take off and landing was very smooth.
Pros: Flight landed 45 min early
Cons: I asked gate attendant if I could move my seat or upgrade my seat if necessary to get more room I'm a larger person and that is very important to me I was told flight completely full and nothing they could do do however when I got on plan the crew from last fight had rows to themselves to sleep in
Pros: 1. The guy sitting next to me. 2. The pilot.
Cons: 1. Flight was delayed twice. Not Frontier’s fault. Kayak only notified me of delay 1-1/2 hours AFTER original boarding time. Seemed unhelpful. 2. Flight attendant had a commandant attitude from the get-go, before anyone had any time to cause any problems, very stern and “listen to our instructions and show us respect!” 3. Seats SO cramped, did not recline. “Tray table” was 5x8 inches. Really.
Pros: Attendants very personable, boarding very efficient
Cons: Seats were uncomfortable. And because I purchased a cheaper ticket I felt everything was a la carte and very expensive.
Pros: Simple and easy loved my seats.
Cons: No offer of beverage even water.
Pros: I bought this flight last minute to attend a funeral. It was the cheapest flight I could find.
Cons: Seats do not recline. Staff very unprofessional, talking about going out an getting wasted in Denver.
Pros: Easy to check and but confusing about whether we had to go to kiosk on not.
Cons: Had to pay for drinks and snacks
Pros: Flight Agents at Frontier at the airport were very polite and professional.
Cons: Kayak was happy to take may money but did NOT book a flight for me with Frontier Airlines. Frontier agents could find my name in the computer but could not find a booking for me. I ended up having to pay fully price at the ticket counter to get a flight to Denver. This is not Frontiers fault, but Kayak did me dirty.
Pros: Getting OFF the plane
Cons: Seats are incredibly uncomfortable and did not recline. Frontier also changed my reservation/ departure date to leave 24 hours ahead of the day I wanted. For the life of me I will never figure out why. Baggage fees are stupid. Lack of transparency. I asked myself many times why why why I choose to book on Frontier. I guess you really do get what you pay for.
Cons: Seats were very uncomfortable they didn't even recline on top of they charge you for every single thing.
Cons: We waited a hour for people who were late. Then we didn't have a gate when we got to DIA because we were so late. Ended up being 2hrs late due to late comers. Not very considerate for those who were on time.
Pros: The flight was safe.
Cons: No employees to check bags. Charlotte security is not prepared for a high volume of travelers. Flight was an hour delayed due to passengers not getting to the gate because of slow security and understaffing at Frontier ticket counter. This causes late arrival in Denver and then we couldn't get a gate t park so we sat on the tarmac for another 45 minutes. Poor initial performance by Frontier caused a chain of events that made everyone frustrated.
Pros: We sat on the plane for two hours before having to get off. The plane was scheduled to leave at 11:59 pm and did not leave until approximately 7:00 am! Pitiful. I will never schedule another flight on Frontier.
Cons: Cancelled flight, no ability to reschedule, child is stranded at Christmastime! I hate this airline and will never use it again. Not even a text or a robocall, just screwed, that's all.
Cons: Flight was cancelled and I was told my only option was to wait 5 days or take my money back. Frontier refused to help me get on another airline to get to my destination. So I end up with a $150 refund and a last minute flight that costs me $600. Terrible customer service. Any other airline would've put me on another flight. never using Frontier again!!
Pros: Free water
Cons: breakfast menu
Pros: Frontier got me there on time even with a late departure
Cons: The seats were uncomfortable, crowded, too many people standing in the jetway, and a petty charge for everything
Cons: There was no gate assignment on my boarding pass or on the screens in the airport. Luckily I know that flights to Denver usually leave from the A concourse so I just walked around until I saw a Frontier logo and could ask someone. Even at the gate, it just said Frontier and had no flight info. There was no Frontier employee so I asked a fellow flier.
Cons: The seats are incredibly uncomfortable, the planes were noisy in a terrifying way and I didn't even get a complimentary snack! I heard other people complaining and swearing they would never fly Frontier again. I was pressed for cash and am grateful for a cheap flight, but next time I'm flying I will spend more for comfort with another airline if I can.
Pros: The flight was on time.
Cons: So cramped. So uncomfortable. The crew didn't seem to want to be there any more than we did. I know it's a budget airline, but pleeeease put a little give in those seats.
Cons: Frontier didn't have the correct gate on the boarding pass and usually isn't even in the display boards. It was fine for me but anyone not airport savvy would be upset.
Cons: We booked this flight well in advance and had confirmation for it. Imagine our dismay when we received a notification a few days before our trip that our connecting flight from Denver to Salt Lake City was changed to 10 hours later. When we arrived in Denver, we went to the customer service desk and was told that the flight we had booked didn't have any seats for us and we would have to take the later flight. No explanation. It was scheduled to leave on time, just that they had no room for us even though we had a confirmation number for that flight. I don't know if the responsibility was with Frontier airlines or our booking agency, but rest assured I will not use either one of them again.
Pros: The crew were great and my flight was on time
Cons: Charged $40 for carry on bags! Also no complimentary beverages or snacks at all
Pros: Hey just a normal flight like the rest except I saved over a hundred dollars and it was a direct flight.
Pros: the equipment and flight were excellent
Cons: the customer service (phone and internet) were terrible
Pros: Very smooth ride.
Cons: Seats not comfy.
Cons: I'm sorry I usually do not say anything negative but all 4 of my flights were bad. They were all late. 2 out of 4 were at the wrong gates. There were no announcements made. If I had not looked myself I would have not even knew.. The crew were rude and unfriendly. No one smiled. Over all a very unpleasant time. I will not use Frontier airlines again.
Pros: everyone was friendly
Cons: it was cramped.
Pros: Crew was nice and very respectful
Cons: The seats are metal with a cloth over them. They do not recline and are by far the most uncomfortable seats I have ever been in. I would never fly with that airline again for that reason
Cons: Frontier has a lot of hidden fees such as having to pay to have a carry on bag and also trying to charge me for a seat when checking in online. I mean, what exactly did I pay for when I purchased my tickets? Ridiculous.
Cons: Overhead baggage fee, new seats were uncomfortable.
Pros: Smooth flight, on time departure.
Cons: Paying extra for everything; eg. seats that were no better than any others, with arm rests that were like rocks; paying for coffee. The 'threat' that if yiu din't pay for seats tigether, you may be separated frim your companion. Overall, a great example of overpromising, overcharging, and underdelivering. A flight attendant whose response to my surprise at having to pay for coffee was "...I don't make the rules." Frontier should spend some coffee money on retraining attendants on customer service.
Pros: The price
Cons: Everything else. Terrible seats, most uncomfortable flight ever. No complimentary beverage/snack.
Pros: The crew was professional and courteous. The gate personnel were a bit confused, started boarding the first people by announcing "last call for boarding". This airline will nickel and dime you all the way they charge 2.00 for water, 35.00 for carry ons 30 for checked bags and the prices are higher if you get caught with a big bag at the gate.
Cons: The worst part of this airline is the seating. They have installed as many seats as they could on these planes no padding in the seats, and NO RECLINE! I will never fly longer than 3 hours with this airline.
Pros: Boarding was efficient, staff friendly and helpful
Cons: New rigid seats uncomfortable in every way, could not feel more packed in nd I consider myself average size at 5'9" 160lbs. I am used to paying for premium seats, and now even used to paying for seat selection at all, but Payment for Carry on policy is a new low in customer service offered.
Cons: Took almost 2.5 hours for us to leave the gate at Charlotte because there was a problem with the computer. The time estimates we were given were very inaccurate. Took over an hour to complete only paperwork which they said would be 30 minutes maximum.
Cons: Initially chose based on low ticket price. When booking, low fare was unavailable and found seating was all extra except middle. At airport check-in, advised we had to pay $45 per bag for our carry ons. None of these charges are clarified during booking through Third party. Ended up spending $125 more than United Airlines flight. I will NEVER fly Frontier again!
Pros: Seat was comfortable. I had enough room with long legs!
Cons: I did not like having to wait in line at ticket counter to check my bag. It would be great to have a line for just checking bags at the ticket counter. I stood in that line and watched people doing seat selection, finding IDs, paying for stuff. A kiosk machine would be good too. If you're going to buy more planes fix the incoming passenger issues.
Pros: Not a thing
Cons: Trays were the size of my plane ticket had to sit laptop in lap, had to pay $6 for a diet coke when I thought it was free and couldn't return it because attendant opened it. By far the worst airline ever
Cons: Expensive and deceptive baggage practices. Rude employees. Substandard seat comfort. Nickel and dimed for everything. Mechanical flight delay. Confrontational stewardess arguing with sick traveler in my seat row.
Pros: Extremely fair price. For what it was, the price was great. It was a direct flight which was even better
Cons: I may just be getting old, but the seats were very uncomfortable for me, so uncomfortable that I couldn't sleep at all. I didn't like how they didn't recline. And they didn't have much space
Cons: Frontier is a bunch of JEWS! By the time you pay for everything that the other airl lines include its the same price or more expensive than its competitors. I will never be flying frontier again.
Pros: Very nice staff
Cons: The ONLY thing that messed the flight up was that there was a baby that cried the ENTIRE time! Drove me COMPLETELY crazy! That child was on BOTH of my flights and the crying never stopped! Other than that, the airline staff were very nice and welcoming. I think had it not been for that crying baby, I'd rate it 5 starts and would definitely recommend to family and friends
Cons: How about net time you guys not cancel my flight and reschedule me for one a day later.
Cons: Horrible company
Pros: It was on time!
Pros: Nice crew.
Cons: Keep masks on travelers.
Cons: No social distancing, every seat was taken
Pros: The crew was super friendly
Cons: There was no Social distancing and I was very scared about it
Pros: I liked getting off the plane and leaving those incompetent employees behind.
Cons: First, I was charged an extra $55 for an overweight bag when I’d already paid $30 to check it in the first place. Then, every employee I encountered acted like a miserably underpaid two year old who was forced to be there. Slight advice: if you didn’t make the price of the flights so “cheap,” you wouldn’t have to overcharge for any and everything else related to the stupid flight. The incompetent, unpleasant employees just added insult to injury. THE worst airline I’ve ever had the displeasure of flying with.
Pros: Crew was nice
Cons: Spirit is the below cheep. The seats are bare basic do not lend back even a little. They advertise as the low rate fare, but by the time you add in the carry on luggage fee, I could have used a different carrier. They charge even for water $3.00 for tiny bottle. The planes rattle during take off and landing. I would only fly Spirit again if I had an emergency to get to and had no other choice. I would pay 50.00 for a better plane. They put two more rows of seats in their plane-cramped, cramped
Pros: I had very low expectations of Spirit Airlines... from their reputation and things I read online. But my family and I had a GREAT experience yesterday. Our bag check process went smoothly and the staff was very courteous. Everything went smoothly for boarding and my husband, my son and I all sat together in the same row. Everything couldn't have went smoother and i really wondered what all the fuss was about Spirit airlines??? We had a really great experience and would do it again. Can't beat the price, even if you pay to check a couple of bags ahead of time.
Pros: ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!!!
Cons: Everything. Glee spirit one other time and completely regret it. Haven't flown with them in 4 years. I remember why now. Flight was originally cheaper but by the time you pay all of there fees to get on the plane you're not saving at all. And once on the plane everything costs a fortune so now you've spent even more. They are never on time in my experiences and don't feel the need to give the paying customers updates. After several hours of delays you get the pleasure of being absolutely crammed in their crappy aircraft. NEVER AGAIN!
Pros: The flights themselves were pretty easy and on time.
Cons: We were traveling with a 2 year old and it was our first time purchasing him his own seat. We did tons of research to figure out the most efficient way to travel with our little guy and decided to bring his car seat on the plane since he travels so well in it. As long as there's a tag or some sort of label on the car seat stating that it is approved for air travel you can use it in a regular plane seat. The first boarding agent was completely unaware of this rule and acted like he was gonna make us check it at the gate. My husband insisted that he would not do that and that it was allowed, so the guy said "well you can try, but it's probably gonna get checked". Once we were on the plane, no one said another word. Feeling like pros by the time we were boarding our return flight home, we installed the car seat in the middle so we could sit on either side as we had on the way to our vacation. This time the flight attendants informed us that we had to install the car seat in the window as it could block the person sitting in the window seat from an easier escape in an emergency. Again, my husband explained that the person in the window seat would be me and that we had installed it in the middle on the way to our vacation, so she said "oh, okay then". Minutes later a second flight attendant came through telling us the same rule but enforced it. While I can appreciate their reason for the rule and the fact that they eventually enforced it, I was baffled at how many employees did not even know their own rules about car seat travel!
Cons: Did not like that it feels like a bait/switch to shop for flights, then highly up charged for things that should be included. Like being charged to check in... Isn't that covered when a ticket is purchased?? I purchased through Kayak and find out later that we can save money by doing everything ourselves online or at kiosk. Then watch all staff sit around and socialize while we over pay. Why have a staff at all? I had to pay to sit in exit seat then asked to assist in emergency. If occupying those seats... Why do we have to pay extra? I guess not what I had in mind. I will choose different airline next time. I paid more to fly my bags than it cost to fly myself. Don't understand!
Cons: Being charged for baggage
Pros: The flight attendants were friendly and the airplane was very clean. The space underneath seats was roomy enough that I could easily fit my bag. Flight was very affordable, especially for a holiday weekend.
Cons: I did not like that I was forced to create an account with Spirit to check in for my flight. I have never had to do that with any other airline, and the experience was frustrating. I also would appreciate if they would give water for free in flight. I understand their policy is to require customers to pay for extras, but water would be nice. There was also no explanation about which security line to get in when I bought the "bypass security" option and no one to ask when I arrived at security until I had gone through the full line. An explanation when the ticket is purchased would be helpful.
Cons: We were delayed for about three hours but there were no announcements or screens displaying that information. There was no indication that we were even at the correct gate. People had to walk up one at a time and ask to confirm what was happening and that we were all at the correct gate. Two hours after our flight was supposed to take off, there was finally an announcement letting us know that there was a delay and our gate would be changed so we needed to move out of the way so another flight could use the gate, but not to too far because they didn't know when or where our flight would be leaving from. It was chaotic and disorganized for no reason. I understand that delays happen but the lack of communication was unacceptable.
Cons: I bought this ticket directly from spirit. They scheduled my connection such that it would have been impossible to make. Apparently this was an "unforeseeable circumstance", so I was offered no accommodations even though there were no alternate flights available until two days later. The agent I spoke with changed his story about what could be done every time we spoke, and when I requested a refund, he was unable to print a receipt or any kind of confirmation paperwork or email whatsoever to prove to me that my ticket had been refunded. He was also unable to tell me the amount of the refund. I simply had to take his word for it that Spirit would process my refund for an unknown amount within 5 business days. Needless to say, i have doubts. This was absolutely unacceptable. I was forced to pay for an alternate flight on a different airline, and pay for an airport hotel for the night. I am beyond furious with spirit airlines and I have received unimaginably terrible customer service.
Cons: The price of the flight was relatively inexpensive, however, after paying for a second carry on, checked bag and overweight checked bag (40 lbs not 50 lbs), this flight was WAY more expensive than other carriers with the same luggage. The bag fees were never explained during the booking process. The flight was delayed almost 2 hours due to other Spirit delays to Ft. Lauderdale, thus, instead of paying hotels and rebooking Spirit customers, Spirit decided to wait until every passenger boarded -- not caring that customers were missing connections in Denver. The ticket agent in Ft. Lauderdale was a right miserable so and so. I'll never use Spirit again.
Cons: I know Spirit offers low fares and in return you pay for everything else, seats, carry-on bags, boarding passes (if you don't print yourself), drinks, etc. In knowing this I did my due diligence before this flight to make sure I wasn't going to be charged for things like the size of my purse (I measured it), etc. Upon check in for this flight, I was informed that I owed $30 because my checked bag was 43 lbs and Spirit has a weight limit of 40 lbs. The other customers in line were just as shocked. To me, the standard is 50 lbs. With that being said, in my research on Spirits website this was not clear. I think this sort of fee should be much more prominent. I am a "prepar-er" if you will and for me to not know this charge was coming tells me Spirit most likely makes a lot of money off of passengers regularly having to pay this unexpected fee at check in. The ticketing agent told me it happens daily after I asked him. This feels a bit like a scam, in my opinion. Spirit will say "It's on our website" and I'm sure it is but again, I don't feel like this charge for a weight that's standard is 50 lbs is clearly called out to passengers. I'm fine with no frills, I'm not fine with unexpected charges that I feel are under the radar until the 11th hour when you have no choice but to pay or repack. Uncool, spirit.
Pros: The flight crew were very nice and professional
Cons: The check in process was horrific. Their website was not working so I was forced to spend more to print my boarding pass at the airport. I had no idea Spirit was going to be so uncomfortable. I really think a disclaimer in large print should be available prior to booking with them. Something like Attention: the flight you are about to book comes with very small, unpadded seats crammed closer together than most airplanes. You will be physically touching every person you sit next to. Even if you are a skinny person. The seats do not recline there is no Wi-Fi or on board entertainment. You will be nickel and dime to death so that in the end you won't actually be saving as much money as you tjought.
Pros: We got there. Eventually.
Cons: First of all, delays. Both flight we took for this trip were delayed, one by a good 7 hours, the other almost 2. That's a rate of 100% for us. During the wait, no explanation, or worse, some BS about the weather. The other companies did not experience any delay due to weather... The flight attendants might as well not be there. At least we wouldn't have to suffer stupid jokes. You get what you pay for, however in this case when you tally up all the fees it is not that much cheaper. Last, the website is downright crappy, starting with password security, to layout and speed. Getting anything done is a chore, and the policies are of course well hidden. I don't think we'll fly spirit ever again.
Pros: On the opposite side of the helpful/friendly spectrum -there was one employee who heard my story and offered to let me use one of his free flights if I was charged for some reason. He waited while I went through the ticketing process again. That was VERY generous. I wish I had taken his name down.
Cons: Did not receive a notification that my gate had changed to an entirely different terminal and I missed my flight. There was no way to even know/find where my new gate was located. They only had one Spirit employee at the gate that was on my ticket and she was busy checking the people in for another flight. Ladies at the correct gate were not friendly or helpful. Paid $200 to stay overnight in a hotel and I missed a day of work. The check-in/ticketing area for Spirit was a madhouse.
Pros: Terrible experience. didnt like much other than the plane was newer. Stewards on plane were nice.
Cons: We did not have to pay for a carryon bag on departing flight. However, agent for return flight would not let us go through security unless our boarding pass indicated we paid for a carryon. So we had to pay $110 for two carryons. When we were boarding, the gate agent indicated those that paid for carryons could board before those that did not pay for carryons. Apparently, not everyone paid for their carryon, but were forced to pay $110 or we couldnt go through security. We will never fly Spirit again.
Pros: First we are flying due to a death in the family. We pay $60 per ticket. Next we get to the airport to check in to find out we had to pay for our seats even after we pay for our seats already. Then we find out that our small carry in bags are another fee. $55 dollars for each bag. So needless to say we had questions so we decided to check in at the counter in person. Oh she answers our questions the. Proceeded to tell us that because we checked in at the counter (because of questions and hidden fees) there was another fee of $10 person passenger. So we get onto the plane. To find out that if you want anything including water, it's at lease another $3.00. For water? Are you kidding? Then we get comfortable in a plane that is sized for a small child. The hear not once, not twice, but three times about a credit card. I am appalled to be bugged three times about a personal finance. Jeez. I didn't pay that much money to be sold on a credit card. I would expect this from a time share. And finally when the plan landed it actually rattled. Sounded like the wings were going to fall down off. So needless to say you have lost our business. We will never fly with Spirit again and neither will my family members.
Cons: I flew spirit to Detroit last week, and after getting delayed 18 hours I finally made it. Now, currently sitting at the airport, my spirit flight home to Denver has been canceled at least 10 minutes after we were suppose to have boarded. I have been at the airport for 5 hours and have been yelled at to stay back from the counter and not to ask questions or else we would just be delaying the process. After about 2.5 hours of waiting, we finally got a number to call to re-book, which still took over an hour. This has been THE WORST airline experience I have ever had. If I were representing this airline I would be ashamed of the horrible service it provides. I genuinely believe I deserve a full refund for my flight (even if it was re-booked)... not just given an apology voucher because I promise I will never fly spirit again.
Pros: About the only thing that I can say I liked is, the boarding process went smothly for me & my luggage was on time.
Cons: Where to start... paid more in bag fees & to get an isle seat for each(4)flights than I did for damn plane ticket! Flights delayed 4hrs another flight in same trip delayed 2 hours. Staff wasn't interactive/friendly I'd say 6/10 were nice. Asked for an isle seat the person helping at counter, said I'd have to pay to upgrade. Seriously- upgrade for isle seat!! I paid to have an isle seat on all 4 flights(I'm a disabled vet who was injured in the line of duty) I need easy access to toilets I'm unable to crawl over people, in turn need idle seat). Paid for isle seat all 4 flights- just to see the flights were super empty, people were sitting where they wanted anyway. Thanks for taking my $ for the seats tho spirit:-|. Staff wasn't that friendly compared to other airlines I've flown on. Not food. No entertainment on flight. Not worth it. If they don't do better business they won't last long I feel. There is potential just needs some work!
Pros: Not much
Cons: We were thrilled about our cheap round tickets, but what seemed to be 440$ ended up being 800$ with all spirit airlines inconvenienced us with. They gave us only an hour an a half to go through customs, get our checked bags through customs, and board our connecting flight. This is nearly impossible even if everything goes perfectly. After a 20 minute flight delay we sat on the runway in bogota for an hour, not even giving us a chance to catch our next flight. We got to Florida and stood in line for 2 hours to wait to talk to someone about our missed flight. They couldn't get us on a flight to Denver until 8pm the next evening and couldn't offer us any help with accommodation. They gave us a slip that was supposed to give us 40% off on select rooms, every hotel was booked so we had to call 20 different hotels to find an available room with absolutely no help from spirit. Not to mention the terrible inconvenience the service is selfish and inconsiderate, you have to pay for everything along the way- food or drinks(even water) on the plane, a selected seat, checked bags, etc- and the seats are the most uncomfortable piles of plastic with no recline tiny tables and no leg room. I will never fly with this airline again.
Cons: I chose this airline because it had the lowest cost....I thought. Then when I went to check-in online I discovered that I would have to pay extra for my seat. Not just preferential seating, but any seat. And since I didn't check in until a few hours before boarding the only options left were $18 seats. The airline website said that I didn't have to pay for seats and they'd assign them when I got to the airport, but there was no guarantee I'd sit next to my husband. Will never fly this airline again for that reason.
Pros: The staff and crew were very courteous and kind and helped ensure that everything went well.
Cons: I didn't enjoy the fact that checked bags were 40 a piece, and that I was limited to one carry on. I booked through a third party site and it wasn't made clear to me that this was the policy. Though it is certainly my responsibility to read and understand the fine print, I've had such a pleasant experience with other airlines that I didn't think I needed to. My fault entirely, but I will not make the same mistake again. Further, I met with some friends at the airport on the same flight, and Spirit lost their expensive and irreplaceable scientific instruments. Though I imagine and hope everything will be okay and the boxes will turn up, Spirit apparently has no process for tracking bags. That isn't acceptable to me. Though the experience was overall smooth (minus paying 80 dollars unexpectedly for round trip checked bags) I will gladly and confidently choose other airlines over Spirit in the future.
Cons: I didn't like the baggage policy. I didn't like the check in policy or the fact that they don't support TSA precheck because they hope to sell you on an additional fee that will get you through a prority lane. I didn't like the seats which are hard plastic, close together, and don't recline. I didn't like the mini tray table that wouldn't support my laptop so I couldn't work. I didn't like that Spirit falsely advertises with the tag line "LESS MONEY, MORE GO" when the base fare for my connecting flight on this sub-par airline was more expensive than a direct flight on a better airline-before the other fees were added.
Pros: The price initially
Cons: The spirit luggage check in delayed me (the 120 minutes early I was there) before the flight - standing in line - by the time I got to the ONE gate agent she said I was too late to catch the flight and admitted it wasn't my fault but I would have to pay an additional $170 to book the next flight which was the following morning. Down hill from there. It took me an hour waiting on hold to speak to someone on the phone. The representative & then her supervisor could care less, by that time the rebooking charge had gone up to $215. It cost me $300+ to last minute book a low price room for the night, taxi back and forth from the airport (I had already returned my rental car). That doesn't include the return flight I paid for on a different airline or the refund I should have recieved for the RT trip I already paid for. Shameful (non)service spirit!!!
Pros: Not much good to say about this. We didn't crash and we did arrive on time. That's it.
Cons: Firstly, I arrived at the airport 2 hours before my scheduled departure. For whatever reason there were some 400 people in line for the bag drop (200 in line, and 200 more in the pre-line which I sh!t you not was a thing) and since spirit always takes 15 minutes a person for this process that should take 15 seconds I barely managed to finish up by the time my plane was boarding. Of course I was then told my flight would be departing from a different terminal and had to sprint to make it by the time the door was about to close. And I doubt I need to bring up the uncomfortable and cramped conditions found on every spirit flight (though they were particularly unbearable for a flight of this length) but here we are. Since my attemp to arrive early and buy dinner in the airport had been thwarted by spirits incredibly slow line system, I starvingly decided to buy a snack box. This consisted of almonds, fruit snacks, crackers and a mint that were fine, as well as cheese spread that was the consistency of water and Oreos that were somehow soggy. In case the hangry tone of this review doesn't give it away, I'm was left very dissatisfied by this BS waste of money. Spirit airlines MAY save you a couple of bucks (only if you buy your bags online ahead of time and maybe not even then), but they will probably cause you severe mental trauma and may shorten your life by 4-6 years.
Cons: This shouldn't be under a cheap category. Considering that I had a carry on, I ended up paying and additional $120 for baggage. On my return flight I sat next to someone who for sure was on some sort of methamphetamine or heavy upper and could not sit still for a moment. or stop scratching herself. There is no phone line at all that gets you to a human to speak to... at all! So asking for specific flight details was impossible. To get a bottle of water on a 5.5 hour flight was $3 which is inappropriate. The seats do not recline and are small. If you do not pay for you carry on a head of time they will charge you $100 which is basically robbery. I will never fly spirit ever again.
Pros: The crew was friendly.
Cons: Both of our flights were delayed for two hours with no explanation. Other airlines didn't seem to be having the same problems. It is rediculous that they charge for bags and that they are the only airline with a 40 pound weight limit when all of the others are 50 pounds. They charge $10 just to print the boarding passes at the airport. All of this they claim saves you money on the fare, but with all of the nickel and diming that they do to you after you purchase the ticket, it is much more affordable to go with another airline. I will choose some one else to fly with next time.
Cons: I wasnt allowed on my plane when it wasnt leaving for 43 minutes after i had arrived there. I would have been there the RECOMMENDED hour and a half early if i hadnt run into heavy traffic. Unfortunately, I only had 43 minutes before the plane left denver and the crew told me that i was late and wouldnt even give me the opportunity to try and get to the aircraft before it left. Then they told me that i could pay almost double what i had origionally spent on the flight to wait 4 hours for the next one with a 6 hour layover for thr connecting flight. I had then asked if it was possible to be reimbursed, the guy at the counter started laughing and said no it was my fault i was late. I have never been treated with such disrespect before in my life. I just dont understand, because no where does it say that if you're not there 50 minutes prior to the flight that you forfeit your flight. 50 minutes, i was there 43 minutes prior. Now i wont be able to visit my family for another year because i used my vacation time for that aweful experience with spirit ovwr 7 minutes. Then when i called kayak to explain to them what happened, they told me there was nothing they could do over and over again. Absolutely no help from either party.
Cons: In the last 30 minutes of our flight we hit a HUGE patch of turbulence that dropped our plane a considerable amount of feet. It also rocked us all around and about and passengers were screaming because of the terrifying jolts and movements. After this very un-nerving turbulence had subsided Spirit airlines decided not to say one word to the passengers the rest of the flight. There was no voice at all that said, "well folks we apologize for not seeing that patch of turbulence," or "we apologize for how bumpy that was," or even a simple, "welcome to Denver" once we arrived. Spirit airlines did not take the simple steps in reassuring the customers that we were safe or taken care of and I was very uncomfortable being on board my flight. This flight has left a bad taste in my mouth and will choose to pay more next time for a SouthWest flight compared to a cheaper, sketchier, Spirit flight.
Pros: Was able to get a flight on relatively short notice at a decent fare and without having to switch between carriers.
Cons: Baggage restrictions and fees are absurd. Standard carry-ons are charged for (you can bring your one 'personal item' free of charge if it's small enough). A single checked bag is $51. Most carriers offer your first checked bag for free. Add $50 to your fare for a bag and see how competitive Spirit really is. No complimentary snacks or beverages---a soft drink is $3. Seats are very tight, unless you pay for an upgrade. Need to fly fast and don't need luggage, or expect basics like nuts and a cup of soda, then Spirit may be a cheaper carrier. Add the 'ala carte' items-like luggage-and the fare becomes average.
Cons: On top of the long lines, the flight was cancelled without any explanation 20 minutes before boarding. We were forced to walk all the way back to the airport entrance, but weren't helped at the Spirit ticket counter. Instead, we were given a card with a phone number to call in order to try and book ourselves another flight. We weren't able to get a flight until the next day with a different airline. It was a very disappointing experience, which created a terrible start to our trip. We will never fly Spirit again due to the unprofessional manner in which we were inconvenienced.
Cons: I arrived 2 hours before my flight and needed to drop off my checked bag. I waited in a huge line at the detroit airport. I made it into the roped section of the line then a "last call" was made for Denver flights and they went to a different line. I was told (with a bunch of other people) that since we were into the roped section of the line we should stay. Then all the denver passengers behind were brought to the front and the people that were told to "stay in line" got screwed and failed to make the flight due to simply trying to check baggage. Approximately 30 of us were told to go down to the spirit office to rebook flights. The office workers were no help and very unsympathetic to the fact that people's travel plans were ruined. I ended up having to rebook a new flight from a different provider that day to protect my other plans at my destination.
Pros: I fly Spirit when I need a ticket within 10 days because the price is always the cheapest.
Cons: On this flight, I received an email saying the plane was delayed. When I got my boarding pass at the airport, it had the original time with no delay, so I checked the departure screen and it said delayed. The gate also said delayed BUT they were loading the plane at the original time. Most of us get on the plane before the door closed but we were unloaded back to the gate after 20 min because the plane engine had an error light that wouldn't turn off. It ended up being delayed 1.5hr. These things happen but it just makes the uncomfortable Spirit flight (I'm 6'3" and don't fit in the Spirit seats very well) that much worse. I didn't buy food or entertainment so those star ratings are not applicable to me.
Pros: Overall this was a bad experience. Spirit forces you to pay $55 for a carry-on bag. I suppose I should have known this already, and I'm sure it was in the fine print of my ticket. So partly my own fault. But when you add in all the fees Spirit nickel and dimes you for, you could have purchased a ticket with a better airline for same price. In addition, the boarding process was slow and the staff was unprofessional. The flight attendants were rude, the seats do not recline at all, and I could feel a hard metal piece inside my headrest. I asked for a pillow but the flight attendant said none were available. I will not be flying Spirit again unless there are absolutely no other options.
Pros: The flight crew was entertaining and made jokes about how bad the level of comfort was. They also joked about the fact that Spirit is a "no frills" airline.
Cons: Safety is, of course, the first priority. We arrived safely. The major issue I had was the lack of comfort. The seats no longer recline at all. In addition, there is almost a total absence of legroom. Seriously... There was more legroom in the back seat of an old school Mitsubishi Eclipse then there is on Spirit Airlines. Most important; however, is the width of the seats. The seats are so narrow and uncomfortable that they cause actual pain. It was so uncomfortable that many people on my flight ended up standing for almost the full 3 hours and 45 minutes. My son is 6 years old and he weighs 45 lbs. the seats for him perfectly. There was no hope that a fully grown adult could sit with even a modest degree of comfort. Spirit bills itself as a bare bones airline and claims to save the consumer money. Between the $10 charge per ticket to check in with a gate agent, to the "pay by the pound" system for checked luggage as well as carry on bags, to the $$$ every time you get a glass of water during the flight, Spirit Arline's doesn't pay. From now on, I'll spend the money up front so I can be on another airline. I'd rather pay up front than feel as if I'm being nickel and dimed. Also, spending up front will get me tickets on American, Delta, or United where the seats are at least bearable.
Pros: Friendly staff.
Cons: The checking in process was fine, as Long as you added your carry on bags within the same process for a smaller fee. However, the "random seating" option that you choose is not actually choosing a seat; therefore I was denied boarding even when I checked in and my seat was given to someone else. I was told nothing until the plane left the terminal and I was told to "get comfortable" while waiting. An hour later, I was given the option to fly the following day home to Denver with 3 layovers, and a full day of traveling. Its hard to travel this type of airline when they have complete disregard for personal plans and do not communicate with their customers the hidden fee's. Bare fare is a way of saying you are paying for the possibility of flying, not even a guaranteed seat.
Cons: Flight was cancelled due to mechanical issues at 1030pm after waiting for 4 hrs. We were all sent to the front desk, got there, and no one came to help us for 30 min. The guy from the gate actually had to come up, I felt so bad for him. He gave - few people at the front of the line cards to call to rebook, but the phone number didn't work so I just called the help line. But most people didn't know and weren't told they could do that. Instead the guy helping us had us form two lines, one for rebooking and one for refund that didn't move for the next half hr. They didn't tell anyone in the line they could call someone so they just waited. The worst is that they told everyone Spirit would not be offering accommodations. It really seemed like a "we aren't going to deliver the product we promised and good luck figuring out what you'll do now." By the end of it, I was just happy to get a flight for the next night. I'm not sure what happened with everyone else once that flight was filled because there were no others. Between the astronomical bag prices and the worst customer service I've ever seen, I won't be flying with Spirit ever again.
Pros: -The employees are very friendly and helpfull.
Cons: -everything cost extra -only 18kg allowed (other airlines minimum 20kg, for FREE!!) -only 1 personal idem (other airlines at least 2) -Extra bags (also suitcase) are really expensive!!! -it cost even more if you don't check in by yourself -even if you want to sit you have to pay, should I stay in the airplane???? -water in the airplane cost 3dollars!!!!! (other airlines for FREE, PLUS snack!!!!!) -on my site (WHICH I PAID FOR!!!!!) were used tissue!! -worst airline i've ever flew with! never again!!!
Pros: Some of the crew members were friendly. The other half were not.
Cons: Spirit dropped us off in Grand Junction with no TSA agent and no information given for 7 hours-no ground transportation options, no hotel offering, no food voucher, and NO ONE there to even tell you how screwed you were. Absolutely unacceptable. We were en route to Denver and told the weather was bad so we landed in Grand Junction. Our baggage was left on the plane and we were told before exiting that another crew was on the way there to take over because the current crew had met their maximum hours. The onboard crew told us that the TSA agent inside would have more information for us. We exited the plane and entered a tiny airport with no gate agent and two security guards struggling to answer our questions. We were told that we had more information than they did. Then we waited. For seven hours we waited. No information at all. Our entire flight crowded the tiny cafe that had just closed, forcing them to open out of the kindness of their hearts. They weren't ready for that kind of volume so simple burritos took an hour and a half to receive. After three hours pizza arrived...from where (possibly Spirit, but doubtful) we don't know, but most of us and already ordered from the cafe. We watched the hours fly by with no one telling us anything. I called Spirit's 800 number four times before finally reaching a real person. That real person put me on hold and finally after fifteen minutes told me that he had no information about any rescue crew coming to take us to Denver. He was supposed to be the one with information, right?!!! Long story short, we left LA at 1pm and after being rerouted, we finally arrived in Denver at midnight. Biggest joke of all was when we landed, I received a voicemail that my bag was waiting for me in Denver. How is that possible, I wondered. Turns out, my bag missed my initial flight, caught a later flight, and luckily (ha!!!) our flight was rerouted for 7 hours so my bag got there before me. If the fact that you get a tiny discount for booking Spirit, but then pay through the nose for carry-on bags, checked baggage, printing your boarding pass if you forgot to (really???), any and every beverage and food item...isn't bad enough (does everyone realize Spirit is more expensive in the long run??? I do now!) Life is too short to fly Spirit. Period. Pay the extra $15 for a real airline. Oh...and my fiance had to uninstall and then reinstall his seat belt buckle because it was improperly put together. Seat belts were flimsy, seats don't recline, seats look like polyurethane over folding chairs. I can't say enough about how horrible the Spirit experience is.
Pros: The plane got me to my destination and back without major incident
Cons: I bought my ticket through Kayak thinking what a great deal! But what I didn't know is that they would then nickel and dime you the rest of the way. When I went to check in I found that I needed to pay $40 if I wanted to bring a carry-on (each way! I suppose it's possible I was going to leave my bag somewhere?) and then had to pay to pick a seat. None of the seats were actually free, which leads me to believe my original ticket price was like a cover to a very overpriced and boring club. Nothing else is included, not even water, so either prepare to pay onboard or be well-stocked (but not too well-stocked, because if your bag is over weight you have to pay more.) The planes themselves were old and rickety and made some weird noises, which didn't inspire much confidence. The spirit credit card was pushed on me multiple times through my online check-in, my additional seat/bag purchases (note: don't offer someone a credit card while they're already annoyed at your company) as well as throughout the flight. I finally fell asleep only to be woken by a long, blaring pitch to sign up for a credit card. This was my first and last trip with Spirit.
Pros: Overall the web site looks like it was successfully intended to be attractive and it contains all the needed info.
Cons: *Promising to answer a question "within 48hrs" is NOT OK when it is about checking in. *We SHOULD NOT have to register in order to be able to check in. Why is more than conf # and name needed unless it is to be shared or sold? *The needed info is scattered in many places on the site eg bag size, weight, and prices. *I was charged the "at checkin" price when I used the add baggage link before starting to check in; b/c I was within 24hrs? Purposely didn't start to check in yet so I wouldn't get the higher price.
Cons: Their web-site is horrible! Tried multiple times to get my bags pre-checked and seat selected. Never worked. Refused two different credit cards that worked fine at the airport. But at that point I was charged extra due to the delay and needing to have things handled by a counter person. Also had trouble getting my boarding pass printed. The web site kept circling back to the same "Print your boarding pass" page. Tried calling customer service. Was routed through a maze of choices that never offered talking to an actual person. Finally found a way to trick the system and couldn't understand the accent. Will never fly Spirit again if there is any other choice. Hassles are not worth the potential cost savings.
