Pros: "That the plane was newer"
Cons: "The service and entertainment options... and the WiFi was terrible"
Cons: "Airplane temperature. It was warm and humid."
Cons: "Freezing in biz class and NO extra blankets. Existing ones too short. No nibbles service either. Pathetic."
Cons: "I had never flown Norwegian Air before. It was a very comfortable flight."
Cons: "The inflight system was hard to use. The rented iPads had to be given back almost an hour before the end of the flight."
Pros: "Everything was superb! The airline I prefer did a great job! The seats, the food selections, the staff - everything!"
Cons: "Nothing. Everything was just perfect!"
Pros: "Crew was so helpful and nice!"
Cons: "Better entertainment options and food options"
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "More room"
Pros: "The crew was very happy and welcoming."
Cons: "We were late and I missed my flight. I was told Flt 452 from LAX to JFK is notoriously late. Also, there could have been more updates about our delayed arrival."
Pros: "I just really like the customer experience with Alaska. I dislike flying, but Alaska makes things as painless as possible."
Cons: "I don't think anything could've been better, it's not possible to be comfortable in coach, but we all already know that."
Pros: "Crew was amazing on board in the first class cabin"
Cons: "They advertise certain movies on their website but have a very limited selection on board. Couldn’t watch what I had wanted to watch."
Cons: "You pay first class a looot of money But your seat can not even recline properly"
Cons: "Delayed 1 hour and 43 minutes. Unacceptable."
Pros: "Entertainment selection was really great. A large number of excellent movies"
Cons: "Seats felt even more narrow than I am used to, and area under seat seemed smaller. Could barely fit my backpack underneath."
Pros: "They were okay"
Cons: "They should have use the first class bathroom. There was a long line on coach."
Pros: "Crew very helpful especially considering I had a child with me. Boarding process was very easy. Departure process was very easy."
Cons: "Food and seating could have been better considering the price for first class."
Pros: "Fast boarding, nice crew, good flight!"
Cons: "I know it was a late night flight but I expected more than just a little cookie and 1 drink for 5 hours and a half. The seats were fine but could be more comfortable."
Pros: "Crew was ‘amazing’!!!"
Pros: "There was lots of legroom"
Cons: "The WiFi didn’t work"
Pros: "Nice crew, intermittent information by crew, Plane ended up leaving ontime despite being delayed initially"
Cons: "Had to go outside via ramps onto tarmac to take a bus to the plane which involved waiting on bus for 25/30 minutes before it moved! Then off bus and up ramp onto plane - not most comfortable process! So it wouldve been better simply to board plane at the gate, and no delay- plane initially delayed"
Pros: "The crew was polite and helpful."
Cons: "Choices of food could have been better, including not running out of items on a 5 hour flight."
Pros: "Clean plane and pleasant crew and announcements."
Cons: "The complimentary snack were dry sugar biscuits."
Pros: "A real cute friendly boy was in the seat next to me. It was easy to sleep through the night on the red eye flight."
Cons: "I passed out the whole time so I didn’t get to flirt as much as I would have liked to."
Pros: "Boarding was quick, uneventful. Standard issue, the passengers were on their own to stow bags, get seated...even as crew was requesting that bags be turned on their sides like a book to provide as much room as possible. Then please go through the cabin and assist. Otherwise it was fine because no one has anything approaching expectations these days."
Cons: "This plane was older, smaller and less comfortable than the one we flew from JFK to SFO. For 5 plus hours it wasn’t the most inviting. At landing several people appeared desperate to deplane, perhaps to make connections but no one assisted them. There were also passengers from the rear of the plane up and in the aisle immediately which just causes tension and friction for those still seated. That’s when I want to and did say something to certain individuals and made them wait. But this is the flight crew’s responsibility, not the passenger’s."
Pros: "I love that you can charge your phone in-flight! It was a red eye, so I wasn’t trying to watch movies or anything, but battery life is always a concern when you want to use your phone. There’s no free WiFi but you can text, which is cool."
Cons: "Generally, we all know coach is just uncomfortable. This was made worse by the fact that the flight attendants NEVER STOPPED WORKING THE AISLES. On a red eye, things usually get quiet after an initial drink service. And they even said it was going to, but that was a lie. I was in an aisle seat and got knocked by drink carts rolling past on at least 3 occasions, and they would talk without even trying to stay quiet. ALL NIGHT LONG. I definitely didn’t sleep, which is usually pretty easy for me. I fly a lot of red eyes and have gotten used to getting to sleep on the plane, but this was by far the worst experience I’ve ever had."
Pros: "Very pleasant and attentive employees."
Cons: "Booked at last minute so have middle seats."
Pros: "They have been on time for most flights"
Cons: "They never have enough room for my carry on even though I pack light. Also I always board in group D no matter if I have an aisle seat in the back or a window in the front."
Pros: "Check in, quick boarding"
Cons: "First class food is terrible, first class seats are disgusting, dirty and broken. The Virgin planes are showing their age. No one is cleaning or repairing anything. The service is not what it used to be. They removed live TV and the movie selection is at least a year old. Sad sad state of affairs. Virgin was my favorite airline."
Pros: "Staff was nice - they did what they could"
Cons: "Six hour delay. Unreal."
Pros: "I liked the price of my ticket. I liked the app. I felt like the plane was clean and very comfortable."
Cons: "I didn’t like that both my flights were over booked so boarding took a lot longer then I expected. I didn’t like that the on board ordering system offers free earbuds, yet the flight attendant said they did not have any. When I boarded my return fligh, the flight attendant that was supposed to be creating us was scrolling through her phone didn’t even make eye contact. When I was getting off of the plane. That same flight attendant was sitting in a first class seat scrolling through her phone again, she did look up to thank us though. Overall the plane was nice, but the I wasn’t disappointed with the flight attendants service"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "N/A"
Cons: "New York airports are always delaying landing and getting to the gate by at least 30 mins. Nothing to do with the airline I assume, but still quite frustrating to do detours and spend extra 30/40 mins in air or taxiing."
Cons: "There were no headphones available on the flight, the seatbelt signs were half working, half not, and when I tried to use my own headphones- the jack in my seat was not operable. On the Alaska flight on the way out, the seat was broken and I couldn’t recline for the whole 7 hour flight. It just seems as though there is a repair issue with Alaska/virgin airplanes."
Cons: "No USB port to fit my ear buds so 6 hours with no audio/video To cold and was declined any blanket froze!!! Unfriendly stewardess both directions who didn’t care to collect trash:SMILE or care I was cold with no movie"
Pros: "Overall I like the space of the cabin. I felt I had a lot of space and didn't feel crowded. I also like the staff, very friendly and overall did an excellent job."
Cons: "There weren’t any major negatives to note."
Pros: "I like people who work for Alaska they try they best are very professional and polite."
Cons: "I travel from Hawai to New York with a laid over in San Francisco In the airplane around 6 hrs fly the offer only one time drinks. Went I check my luggage in HNL they tell me will go all the way to JFK airport , went I was in San Francisco they call me to pick up luggage because they don’t sent to New York. Went we arrive to San Francisco airport they delay fly for 3 hrs I have a hotel in NY to sleep for 5 hrs before I pick up rental car and start to drive to my next trip . I lost my hotel reservation, again only one time they offer drinks and food was not good in airplane ."
Pros: "Air vents let very little air flow so it was pretty warm during the entire 5 1/2 hrflight. 737-900 has lane."
Cons: "Temp was warm"
Cons: "The premium seats that I paid to upgrade to were too narrow and the arm rests didn’t move"
Pros: "Customer service both on the phone and in person wede professional, friendly, and accommodating. They went out of their way to make our trip as comfortable as possible."
Cons: "I, honestly, have no complaints about this flight."
Pros: "Great food. Excellent flight attendants."
Cons: "Rough ride."
Pros: "The service the last time I called"
Pros: "The crew members were fantastic. They had to go up and down the skinny little isle but they made everyone happy!"
Cons: "The plane had no room. the seats were very tight and our shoulders were way bigger than the seat. We are not overly large people. my husband in the isle seat kept getting booty bumped. You need better planes. Took Hawaiian home (much more space) and will never take alaska again, for the sole reason that i don't want to feel like a sardine anymore."
Pros: "Travel time, good flt crew and flt."
Cons: "Seats were to short"
Pros: "I'm glad it was a short flight!"
Cons: "It was hot. Really, really hot. They were talking about taking us back to our destination, but that call, positive or negative, should have been made before the flight as we didn't have equipment failure post-boarding. The idea that we'd go back is ludicrous if we'd already pushed from the gate. Get it together, Alaska."
Pros: "tablets were perfect for my seven year old."
Pros: "Very friendly crew. Efficient boarding."
Cons: "Small selection of movies. Must use one's own portable device to view movies, or rent one of their tablets."
Pros: "The boarding process was unhurried and they offered free checked bags to keep the overhead storage from overflowing."
Cons: "The noise level in the cabin was high. I'm glad that I have Bose noise-cancelling headphones."
Pros: "Flight personnel were focused and expedient. We arrived on time."
Cons: "First time flying Alaska outside of the Mainland. For a five hour flight, surprised there were no complementary meal service. Only beverage cart services. Flying five hours to Maui, Hawaii is a bit different than a 1 hour flight to Portland or Seattle. Price of Alaska economy ticket no less than their next competitor (i.e., Hawaiian Air, etc.) on the same flight route offering meal service. May want to rethink pricing model?"
Pros: "The crew on Alaska is always great. They always engage in conversation and seem to be in good moods, and not cranky. I like the little prop planes. Plus the complimentary beer and wine is fantastic. What happened to giving the consumer a little something on any other airline? I mean I feel like I have to fight for a cookie."
Cons: "We were rushed on both flights I took this week with Alaska. It was to make up for lost time. It just was a jumble at the gate. It made up for the time but it feels like cattle being herded. And I hate that. But I was happy with being on time so, good and bad I guess."
Cons: "Two days before flight online seating chart showed no seats available that were together in main cabin so I bought "economy plus" seats. There were actually 32 empty seats in economy, many people had while rows to themselves. What a ripoff."
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "Being on time"
Cons: "Nothing you guys did great thankyou so much."
Cons: "I dont know WHY Delta changed my flight with ALIITALIA, but, DON'T DO IT DELTA. The check in process took an hour, not talking about the line, the ACTUAL checkin at the counter. I couldn't complete my web checkin at the AliItalia web site. Landed in JFK, still sucks as an airport, nobody helps, nobody explains anything, very poor signs and instructions, Global Entry kiosk are hard to spot. My connection ticket didn't have the TSA/PRECHECK legend, went to AliItalia counter, the lady at AliItalia barely said anything when I asked for help with that, her immediate answer was to disengage and sent me to another terminal "to talk to Delta". She didn't explain or didn't want to give an explanation until I started to act as an already 9hr30min flight frustrated customer in a very old, very poor plane with poor food service. Again, I bought an over $1,000 ticket with DELTA, NOT ALIITALIA, if Delta send people with their "partners" at least make sure that they are taken care of properly."
Pros: "Very uncomfortable seats and careless crew"
Cons: "The worst food and service ever. Very disappointed"

Cons: "Chose my seat, instead of leaving it to the airline ."
Cons: "KAYAK did not informed us we have to pay for our luggage!"

Cons: "When we booked our flight, we were not informed by KAYAK that we have to pay for our luggage! I t was very unpleasant surprise both ways."
Pros: "Flight attendants were amazing"
Cons: "Boarding was very slow and exiting the plane was also slower than normal. An overhead bin was locked and that delayed passengers"
Pros: "Nice smooth flight"
Cons: "The in-flight entertainment in my seat did not work properly so I could not enjoy watching movies or shows. A minor but unfortunate inconvenience."
Pros: "The access to the full library of entertainment & internet access included with the flight ."
Cons: "Larger Portion/Variety of edible Snacks . . Chips Trail Mix Cheese itz Cookies"
Pros: "The crew and the boarding were good"
Cons: "No food. Just unhealthy snacks"
Pros: "Crew was very attentive"
Cons: "Delta staff at the airport JFK"
Pros: "The crew was professional and courteous, one of the best crews we had experienced onboard Delta."
Cons: "Cleaner bathroom"
Pros: "The crew was excellent, friendly, and efficient."
Cons: "The most difficult part was boarding and deboarding due to some of the passengers not listening to the guidance of the crew."
Pros: "Like the “lanes” for boarding; however, there was no announcement so some people did not know and did not line up and just cut in between those who had. Biscoff cookies are always appreciated."
Cons: "The WiFi was very cumbersome to use, despite the instructions. The monitors had a marked delay when touched, making the entertainment a challenge to use."
Pros: "Helpful"
Cons: "More print media to read on"
Cons: "The seats are not very comfortable for such a long flight"
Pros: "Crew was nice and tried to help us as there was no food on board for our dietary restrictions."
Cons: "The folks at the desk arrived late to address issues. It was crowded and disorganized. When i addressed an issue at the check in regarding not seating me with my children including a 7 year old). the response is. Well you bought a cheap flight so tough luck. The plane was dirty and frankly not very"

Cons: "A little bit of leg space"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "No food was served"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "The charging ports didn’t work, seats were avianle unable to move to a different one."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Seats did not recline"
Pros: "Liked the food, the crew were cheerful and helpful. Service was great."
Cons: "KLM staff at the AMS airport were not helpful. She insisted that our luggage weigh exactly 23kg. At 23.7, she had us go back to take things out with only 45 minutes to boarding. She was rude and unprofessional. Taking off and landing was a little rough. Entertainment on the plane was limited and a little outdated."
Pros: "The crew was fantastic and very carrying when I wasn’t feeling well. They checked on me multiple times! The food was also really good for airline food!"
Cons: "The security process in the Prague airport is so ridiculous. There are security agents who screen you in the baggage drop off line that makes the line take a very long time. Once you finally get your sticker from them it’s a quick trip through customs. Then the pain really begins with a security scan st each individual gate to enter a boarding area for the plane. Then I was pulled for extra security where a male agent touched my but with some sort of swab with no warning. He then claimed to not speak English (with zero accent when I asked him a question). It was a humiliating and very long process all run by delta!"
Pros: "The pilot and the stewardess were very polite."
Cons: "Standing on line,it was slow cause only 1 person was help people check in. It would been better if everyone could check in with the kiosk machines. After half an hour than another person came to help. TSA move more fast cause so many people were working."
Cons: "Call center tried moving us to later flight that was also delayed by 3 hrs despite telling us it was on time. Fortunately a gate agent moved us back to orig flight"
Pros: "Good flight. Organized. Friendly flight attendants. I like Delta."
Cons: "Paid for priority seats, but weren't offered the option for my two free drinks due to the flight being short distance."
Pros: "good flight and pleasant staff"
Cons: "no vegetarian option in business class therefore nothing to eat for me for whole flight. also sky lounge very poor"
Pros: "Empty seats, room to spread out"
Pros: "Wi-Fi on the plane is a nice touch."
Cons: "The seats are packed so tight there's almost no leg room - actually there is no leg room when the person in front of me reclined their seat. Since we were advised to get there 3 hours in advance only to wait two and a half hours in what is quite possibly the most uncomfortable waiting room anywhere this just makes the cramped plane even more frustrating."
Pros: "Staff, Ease of boarding"
Cons: "Bring back in flight meals, please"
Pros: "Some "perk" for Diamond status on Delta to get to a shorter security line, but customs and immigration was... customs and immigration."
Cons: "No available SkyTeam lounge unless you had a business class ticket. As a Diamond flier, I can always access the SkyTeam lounges. Audio for boarding was a little unclear so there was some confusion at boarding. For reasons unknown, my bag was moved from one overhead bin to another. Very frustrating since I board early to avoid this confusion and hassle."
Cons: "My row didn't have sound on our entertainment system. I was able to move to another seat and they did compensate the couple that was next tho new with beverages and miles to their account."
Cons: "There wasn't electricity at all on my seat and on some other in the same area. The screen didn't work and I couldn't even charge my phone. Very bad experience!"
Pros: "Food selection and quality were fine. I also enjoyed the entertainment options. Seat area was comfortable and spacious."
Cons: "The flight attendants were uniformly rude and nasty to passengers from start to finish. As I boarded, I asked for a piece of art to be stored in the wardrobe compartment. This was treated as an inconvenience. During and after boarding, flight attendants addressed passengers rudely when encouraging them to take their seats in a timely fashion. Later, when my seat mate politely asked a FA to repeat the food options, she asked, "Excuse me?" several times and seemed very irritated to have to repeat the choices for him. Also, near the end of the flight, a pillow was on the ground and a FA asked those seated in my row to pick it up. We responded that it wasn't ours and she said something to the effect of, "Oh yeah? So how did it get there?" (Maybe because someone else dropped it and we didn't notice?) The FAs seemed irritated to serve passengers at all. Each time they passed through for beverage or meal service, I felt like I was imposing on them. I have never witnessed anything quite like it. Makes me wonder why they were all so upset and and felt it appropriate to speak and act disrespectfully toward customers. (Delta, do you have any insights?) I hope they all got a good night's rest after that haul."
Pros: "Friendly staff. Very accommodating."
Cons: "Wifi never works. I wanted to charge my phone, but my outlets weren't working, either (my neighbor had no issues). Kinda sucked considering I was planning on working on my flight to New York. The AC was blasting humid air, so it was extremely uncomfortable."
Pros: "Friendliness of the staff"
Cons: "No complaints. I wish that the updates on the flight delay were a little clearer, but that's about it."
Cons: "As a Platinum AFK/KLM Skyteam member I was NOT allowed to use the Delta Lounge. On the flight the meal choice was poor and the staff were not really geared to serving regular clients. The movie choice was poor. I expected better!"
Cons: "My flight got cancelled without letting me know in advance I was in the airport and spent me hours to switch a flight I ended up arriving at a different airport and need to spend more money for über"
Pros: "Over all the flight was smooth and great"
Cons: "Kayak, the confirmation email that was sent was incorrect, ended up flying delta - had a scare when checking in at the air europa desk and the attendant says "theres no flights to Malaga" - after further investigation from the staff, we found out it was a Delta flight and NOT and air europa flight"
Pros: "Cheap"
Cons: "My roundtrip flights with delta were all delayed at least 2 hours. That's what you pay for for a cheap flight. There were no inclement weather and the staff didn't give a reason for the delay."
Pros: "It was on time."
Cons: "The plane was dirty and there was a lot of trash around my seat."
Cons: "I didnt like that my flight was canceled and rebooked for no reason. This created me big problem in Athens that they couldnt find my ticket in delta. Also I didnt like that i had to stand and wait for 3 hours in the line because my flight was canceled but no one could let us know if there gonna be any flights within the day. I slept in the airport because i couldnt find a hotel to spend the night close to the airport. They were all full and i had no time to find one since I was waiting there for 3 hours with no informational. I slept on the floor and delta didnt even offer us a blanket. That was my worst trip ever."
Pros: "Boarding in St Thomas is always a mess, no matter what airline you fly. I usually fly Delta because the planes are clean and the people are nice. Well this time the staff went well above and beyond. My friend and I were sitting in the front row of seats in the lounge at the airport, facing the Delta gates. There was a mob of people milling about between us and the gate, so we could not see very well, but we thought we had a clear view of the door. Also it was very loud in the terminal. The flight had a delay, so we were relaxing and chatting, when I got a text from my mom asking if I was on the plane. So I went to the counter to inquire if they had started boarding our flight. The lady looked at me with surprise and said, "We have been paging you!!". Well we were both surprised! We had not heard anything over the general din in the airport. It turns out they had completed boarding and already rolled the stairs away from the plane! The ground staff talked to the captain and then they rolled up a set of stairs, opened the door to the plane, and let us on! The flight attendants said that they had never seen that happen before. I want to extend a heartfelt thank you to the crew at Delta for going the extra mile to make sure we made it on our flight."
Cons: "There is nothing I didn't like about this flight!!"
Pros: "Flight was very comfortable and had a lot of space to move around"
Cons: "The gentleman indicating on the loud speakers what zones will be loading first was very rude."
Pros: "Delta service and conford are great."
Cons: "Pay for wifi"
Pros: "Speed, this airline is on a mission. I like that."
Cons: "Just keep it simple"
Pros: "I hate frontier! Never drive with them!"
Pros: "It was a quick flight."
Cons: "The crew was obnoxious. They spent the whole time talking about work loudly, sometimes rude, and laughing hysterically. It was hard to rest."
Pros: "Crew was great, friendly, and accommodating."
Cons: "Seats do not recline, could have better snacks!!"
Pros: "The flight was ok, nothing outstanding. Ordinary uneventful flight."
Cons: "Lots of extra costs for baggage, seats, drinks and snacks, not experienced with other airlines. One of the hardest landings I’ve ever experienced. Perfect weather and no wind to speak of so not sure what happened there."
Pros: "Crew was fun, family oriented"
Cons: "Entertainment options, complimentary tea and coffee"
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "No three hour delay"
Pros: "The ground crew was rude, the desk people were even less helpful and acted like I was a burden to them by asking qurstions"
Cons: "Frontier could have sucked less"
Pros: "Overall a quick flight crew was great always picking up trash it was clean."
Cons: "Only thing I hate and probably will never fly frontier again checking my bag was 50$ and the seats are absolutely uncomfortable I will pay a little more and fly with someone else everytime I fly because after bags it’s not worth it"
Pros: "Fairly comfortable seating"
Cons: "It would be nice to have complimentary coffee. $3.00 for 6oz of coffee is a bit much,"
Pros: "Crew was super friendly."
Cons: "It would be nice to offer non alcoholic beverages for free."
Pros: "The crew was very nice"
Cons: "It was difficult hearing when the captain was giving announcements."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Was on the runway for 3 hours waiting to take off while in fort Myers"
Pros: "We were originally delayed by about 30 minutes due to a lack of a pilot. Another was called in and we still got to our destination on the other side of the country on time - amazing!"
Pros: "Perfect price, great crew, Wonderful overall experience."
Cons: "How are you gonna charge me for a cup of ice...was thirsty the whole flught"
Cons: "A little cramped and you should be more upfront about a dumb fee of $45 for a carry on. I thought I was getting a good deal on a flight but I guess I was wrong. I will probably fly with an airline that doesn’t charge you for something that should be free from now on"
Pros: "Service friendly. Pilot funny. Clean. Average comfort."
Cons: "Cost for baggage. Too much."
Cons: "They should start boarding from the rear of the plane to the front so that people sitting in back don't have to wait for people in the front or middle of the plane to stow their bags."
Pros: "Direct flight is great. Price very good if you Don’t need to bring luggage ."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seating. Long flights would Not be good"
Pros: "The crew was good and the the seats were semi comfortable. The price round trip was good."
Cons: "4 hour delay going to our destination because of a "scheduling issue" Unacceptable. We almost missed our car rental. Also, on a side note, Do not use Fox Rent a Car in Orlando, our car had mechanical issues and there was also blood splatter on the roof, disgusting! And going home we were scheduled to be on time and we were boarded on time and about to leave the gate and they told us that they found a dent in the plane which later on we found out was a hole in the engine. So we were taken off the plane and wasn't for another 4 hours that we got another plane. Overall not impressed. We did receive a 100 dollar voucher each for both delays but honestly would never use this airline again."
Cons: "Had the AC cranked. Asked for a blanket and the attendant laughed like airplanes never carry those."
Pros: "Everything went as planned"
Cons: "Frontier has absurd baggage fees."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Service during delays"
Pros: "This crew was a lot friendlier the the crew that I flew out with. They had smiles on their faces and no attitudes unlike the first crew from BUFFALO to Fort Myers. This crew makes me want to fly again with this airline. The other crew had me questioning my decision to fly with this company at all."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "Boarding."
Cons: "Long flight, uncomfortable seats, a la carte everything, and prices were high for food and beverage. Vendor booked flight for me, so I did not choose to fly Frontier. Thought I had a direct to San Diego from D.C., turns out, we stopped in Colorado Springs, de boarded, waited an hour or so, then re boarded."
Pros: "Only the boarding, it was smooth."
Cons: "I was ready for not having the power outlets, no complains about that part, but I didn't realize that the Frontier airlines would be so obsessed about saving their money that you can't even have a free glass of plain water!, everything is for purchase only. I am not even mentioning juices, tea, coffee etc., which are complimentary in all other airlines. The seats cannot be reclined, so you have to sit straight for all the duration of the flight. I hope the Frontier corporate staff monitors these reviews and will improve, but honestly I doubt. Once a person or an airline becomes greedy, there is no way they will change for the best."
Pros: "Great crew!! Comfortable seats!"
Pros: "The direct flight"
Cons: "Comfort, lack of wifi, seats not teclining"
Pros: "Check in process was very efficient, no wait. Plane was clean. Staff on plane helpful"
Cons: "Long line to board plane. 100+ people on jetway in Miami and it was very hot!! Very simple seats, not particularly comfortable. First time flying with Frontier and was surprised drinks and snacks not included. Costly, $650 for 4 seats Miami to LGA, one way."
Cons: "Delayed 45 minutes a soda $3"
Pros: "Attendants at the boarding site in Phoenix are great!"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "First time flying with frontier, and last time flying with frontier. For some unexpected reason my flight was cancelled to Florida, needless to say it has the best weather in the country right now. I was on hold for 2 hours trying to get through to a customer service representative and no one answered. I did not get a comped hotel night and not even a meal! Worst airline I've had to deal with when it comes to customer service, will not be flying frontier again."
Pros: "On time. and comfortable."
Cons: "Lot of turbulance."
Pros: "overall very satisfying. havent flown in a number of yrs and things have changed a ton. Ur team did a great job. Booked thru Kayak. One suggestions would be a little more forthcoming with additional costs on website. For us newbies. I will fly Frontier again and have a better understanding of the exp. Thanks for 2 nicely done legs. appreciate the effort and the product"
Pros: "Price is able to reach"
Cons: "No water to customer drink"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 9 hours. Crew let us know they were not happy about having to take us to LAX. The token $100 does not help me at all. It would only help business travelers. The last time I flew before this was 7 years ago. An apology does not go very far. I will never fly Frontier again."
Cons: "Feeling like cattle...unorganized....late flights, rude staff (baggage claim people at SFO were horrible even mocking my choice of baggage). Super cramped, uncomfortable....and having to listen to frontier's infomercial about their credit card for 30 min"
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "Everybody was freezing due to air condition. The plane was rocking and shaking and I understand turbulence but no explanation for the ongoing issue. I could see the fear amongst those around me. This was the worst flight I have EVER taken."
Pros: "Flight was on time and courteous staff"
Pros: "Friendly staff, ease of boarding and love the menu options. More options than I had on American on a flight across the country"
Cons: "I was fully satisfied"
Pros: "The flight was too noisy and took too long for us to get off"
Pros: "I liked that I could have a red eye from Denver to Florida. The pilots were excellent I couldn't even tell when we are taking off and when we had landed because it was so Smooth. The plane was very clean. The flight crew was courteous and mindful of the fact that people were going to be very tired on this red eye."
Cons: "The woman who first checked me in almost sent my bag to Orlando which was not my final destination. The company tried to charge me $35 for a carry-on and $30 for the checked bag. This company knows that people have to bring luggage on flights and they sell themselves on having the cheapest flights when in reality they are making money off of the fact that people have to bring luggage on a flight. The tray tables were ridiculously small. This seats are spaced really close together so even if you wanted to rest your head on the ridiculously small tray table you couldn't because the seat in front of you is so incredibly close to you."
Cons: "Cost of flight, which is not discounted, does not include your seat! It also charges for a checked bag AND carry on!!!! Our flight landed on time at 12:45 am and we sat at the gate until 3 am! Not getting me home until 5! Will never fly Frontier again."
Pros: "I got home."
Cons: "To tight, late flight, bumpy ride, rough landing and got ignored."
Pros: "I liked that boarding was quick."
Cons: "I did not like the fact that you have to pay for everything. Your flights are so cheap that I should have to pay for carry ons and my own seat. Snacks and drinks are all paid as well. This is exactly what I don't like about spirit."
Cons: "The delay. Lack of customer support. They nickel and dime you. Unhelpful staff at airport."
Pros: "There wasn't anything clearly that I liked. There were some things that I was able to tolerate however."
Cons: "Although the price of the flight itself was cheaper than other airlines it's really not worth it. For one, you often pay a lot more than the stated price of the flight. You pay for such "extras" as obtaining preboarding seats online, checking luggage at the terminal (instead of online), obtaining seats that recline, obtaining seats with "extra legroom" (for a mere $50 one way), on board nonalcoholic beverages and even water were extra. In addition the cost for carry-ons and extra luggage was considerably higher than other airlines. Frontier doesn't coordinate with TSA, so your TSA preboarding clearance is worthless. But worst of all were the seats. Very little padding and the nonstop flight of 4 1/2 to 5 hours was really misery. Of course you could bring on a seat cushion with you, but that would cost extra.. Even with all of this, I probably saved a few bucks my flying Frontier. But really, life's too short to see how much misery I can put up with just to save a few dollars. I won't be flying this air airline again. Frontier might work for young healthy men and women who are taking short brief trips, who don't carry any luggage and who don't mind sitting on a seat that feels like a wooden bench."
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Seats are not comfortable, tray tables are tiny, amenities are non existent without a surcharge."
Cons: "Since frontier has went cheaper they have become one of the worst airlines. My first flight ran out of water for the bathroom and my second flight we delayed because they had to duct tape the bathroom door back on from the flight before mine."
Cons: "Wifi"
Cons: "Seats need more leg room or better cushion"
Pros: "The lady crew members were well dressed, helpful and very nice."
Pros: "NOTHING WAS GOOD ABOUT THIS FLIGHT!"
Cons: "I received notices of delayed departure of two hours but that same notice showed the arrived was delayed by over four hours. I called and talked to an agent and asked how my flight could have all of sudden gotten two hours longer and was told the delayed departure was correct and the arrive time was not. He said it was a mechanical issue and could change so I should still go to the airport an hour before my original departure time, which I did. When I arrived the flight was now delayed by more than four hours and I was told it was due to the crew being timed out so I had to sit there for five hours waiting to leave. I should be compensated for this error but cannot find out how to do that!"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I was at the airport 50 mins before take off and the agent refused to give me a boarding pass"
Cons: "Had to pay $50.00 to check a bag and the weigh limit was only 40 lbs not 50 lbs like regular airlines. So the price of the ticket may have been low but after over $100 baggage charges I would have been better off buying a better airline ticket."
Pros: "I liked that I made it to my destination safely."
Cons: "The flight delays suck. The crew makes jokes that were not funny. I'm not afraid of flying but imagine someone who is. They would have had the heard crew making jokes about how many near crashes they've seen when taking off. The attendant closing the doors said I'm about to close the doors if you have a problem with it Catch me outside how bout dat. Not everyone would get that joke, so if you did not know about the Danielle Bregoli 10 mins of fame, then you would think it was very rude. In addition having cup o noodles and buzz balls as a choice sucks. The seats are super uncomfortable. No matter how small you are you will be touching shoulder to shoulder. Do not attempt to use your armrest. The seats hurt your bottom as well. Keep in mind I was on a flight for 1 hour. I'm not a big girl so that was not the problem. Carry on luggage the normal size, you have to pay for. So make sure you pay ahead or you will pay $100 at the gate."
Cons: "Flight got cancelled after security check in, just over an hour before take off. Also, no accomodations were provided. Other spirit flights also got cancelled after 3 hours of take off time. Truly Chaos and spirit did a pathetic job in managing it. NEVER EVER TAKING SPIRIT."
Pros: "Low cost travel with no frills attached. Friendly crew. On-time boarding, before scheduled time arrival! Had heard a lot of bad things but my experience was not bad at all."
Cons: "Not even basic beverages & snacks provided for 5-6 hour flight."
Cons: "Email spam. Poor customer service. Delays all the time"
Cons: "im not one to complain but Wiskey Tango Foxtrot. I show up to the gate and they somehow canceled my reservation and gave my seat away! They put me standby on that same flight. We get to the gate and it's delayed an hour. After an hour it gets canceled because the flight attendants all called out!!! Seriously. Go to the front they put me on the next flight at 6pm (8 hours from the original flight I was booked for) That one gets delayed 2 hours and at this point the plane is over booked so I figured I'll just give up my seat and fly another day. Go to the front counter dude says the next available seat is in 12 days!!! And even if I want to change my flight the manger is on break. He turns to the guy next to him and in Spanish asked where she went and he said she went to the house. She is the only manger in the airport that has a code to change anything including giving my money back. So I book a flight with United and go back to the house. Worst experience ever. I'm in the military and fly constantly and have never had this horrible experience."
Cons: "Comedy was over the top too much. All the additional pay as you go charges and required checked luggage which force me to the baggage claim for an extra 20 minutes and I had to pay for that privilege."
Cons: "firstly they have given me earlier flight. Now after lot of drama they cancelled the flight. Passengers are left stranded. After that they decided to fly one flight which will be at 11 PM but seats are full. They have issued me 6 AM flight for next day. No one was at customer center to entertain us. Tried reaching spirit people luckily I got stand by in 11 PM flight and I got cleared the stand by list. But I have a very horrible experience with Spirit. They don't entertain people properly"
Pros: "I loved the personalities of the crew and pilot; they were very warm and I felt as though they were comfortable being themselves. We arrived 1.5 Hours early to our destination which was great except there was no gate for us when we arrived..which brings me to my qualm.."
Cons: "We were on the plane for 2.5 Hours waiting to be assigned to a gate, which was very frustrating."
Pros: "Absolutely NOTHING"
Cons: "This airline has check in requirements that no other airlines have and did not send any email or notification what so ever letting passengers know. I also was not informed through Kayak of these rules. They would not let me on the flight because I was waiting in line while 3 of the 4 check in attendants were not even helping people in line! I had to pay a $100 fee to change my flight and they didn't have any options for same day. The flight wasn't even boarding yet and there wasn't a line for security and the gate was very close. If they don't let passengers know of their rules when selling through a 3rd party website THEY SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED TO SELL THROUGH 3rd PARTY WEBSITES! Absolutely disgraceful experience."
Pros: "1. Nice crew that tried to compensate for everything else."
Cons: "1. Flight delays significant...4 hours late! 2. Tried to get me to apply for a credit card and fill in a form with my social security card number...NO WAY!!!!"
Pros: "Great first-time flight down to LA from Oakland. Great seat/lots of room/nice staff."
Cons: "My trip home was ruined when I had to pay an extra $65 for a super small roll-on bag. I was called out of the on boarding line and not informed as to why. This experience was embarrassing and made me feel awful. I would have not been so upset if I had to pay the same fee on the way down. I actually was able to bring 2 carry-ons out of Oakland without any charge. The LAX SPIRIT team made me consolidate into one bag (which I did earlier) and then charged me an outrageously high fee for a small, 18" roll on that fits under the seat! SPIRIT is inconsistent in their service/policies airport to airport. They have lost me as a customer based on how they nickel and dime their customers with inconsistent policy enforcement of their policies. This industry continues to bulldoze the customer and makes air travel beyond painful."
Pros: "New aircrafts"
Cons: "The fact that you have to pay for luggage and limit each bag to 40 lbs. Its very easy to overlook the weight limits for luggage since it shows pricing for overweight bags and because of it I found myself unpacking and re-packing my bags at the check in counter which is very frustrating. Also this airline charges you for little things here and there which defeats the purpose of saving money. I ended up paying more for my seats thinking I they were going to be more comfortable but they were all the same except for executive class (or so I think its executive). So in conclusion I ended up paying almost the same that I would have paid should I have chosen another airline with bags included. Also the seats are DO NOT recline which sucks big time."
Cons: "I was on time and it took me a couple of minutes at the kiosk to check in. The online checkin was not working either on spirit airlines.com. I missed The cut off by 2 minutes literally. I told the agent I wasn't aware of their policy that all gates close 45mins prior to boarding. It's not like I had a checked bag in which case I would understand. Letting someone not board a plane 45 mins prior to arriving at the airport is just plain madness. They were so unadjusting and not ready to listen and then wanted me to pay $99 to fly the next day. Their service seriously needs major upgrade. I try not flying spirit because of this reason and now will avoid it at all costs."
Pros: "The customer service was incredible. I knew what I was getting in to regarding no entertainment, smallish seats, etc. but I did not find the seats uncomfortable and brought my own entertainment. I will travel with Spirit again."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "After going through a long customer service wait, I was able to rebook a flight on Delta flying through Salt Lake City to LAX, with a layover. A 1.5 hr trip ended up taking nearly 6 hrs. Will not (attempt to) fly Spirit again."
Pros: "the price"
Cons: "forcing the passenger to sign up for the airline membership and advertisements in order to check-in online was not cool, That should be optional. I also did not appreciate more than one hour delay on a one hour flight."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled at 12 pm because of staffing issues and it's so hard to get anyone on the phone about reservations."
Cons: "I was a bit late getting to Newark, but I only had a carry-on, so needed to grab my boarding pass and just get through security. When I finally found the Spirit Airlines counter in the basement, their electronic kiosk wouldn't work. There was a huge line, so the Spirit employees ignored me. I could not get my boarding pass, even though I would have had time to get through security and run to my gate!!! I had to buy a separate flight on United so I could make it to this wedding. Any refund would be appreciated! Spirit Airlines is horrible!!!"
Cons: "The airline emailed at 2 am to notify that the 6 am flight was cancelled. The cancellation hotline was not too helpful - they rebooked me on a Delta flight connecting to two more United flights. Delta flight was delayed so I would have missed my 2 connections. Finally rebooked me on another Southwest flight to New Orleans (final destination) that they should have rebooked me on in the first place. Also discovered upon my second rebooking that the initial rebooking agent did not rebook my return flight, so I would not have had a seat had my first rebooking leg not been delayed. Only offered at $50 Spirit voucher for the inconvenience. Definitely never taking Spirit again."
Cons: "It was a terrible experience!!! Stinky way to end a vacation!! From the moment we entered the terminal, SPIRIT handled everything poorly. They had 5 agents working to handle 5-6hundred passengers. There was only one agent walking the floor answering questions. He was nice enough to me but in his frustration, he was very rude to other passengers. People were getting nervous that their planes were boarding and they still hadn't checked their bags. This caused people to try and cut in front of other people in line and of course those passengers became angry. After finally getting through that mess, we got to our gate in a different terminal (which was also confusing because our boarding pass said terminal 3 which we went to first only to find out that we needed to go to Terminal 4 to check in and then walk over to terminal 3 to board). Once we boarded the plane they told us that the computer system was down so they could not put in their flight planes so they let us off the plane. We re-boarded the plane and finally landed home around 2:00 in the morning. By the time we got our luggage and drove home (20 minutes) it was 3:15. Overall Stinky!!!!!"
Pros: "Nothing, there is nothing good about this airline,"
Cons: "On your best day you will pay money for every little thing carry-on, seat assignments even water. But this last experience was the worst, when checking flight status our flight was delayed 45 min, when we arrived at the airport it was only delayed 15 and we were denied entry to the flight BC we were only 40 min early not 45. Even though we were not check bags and are TSA pre check and would have easily made out flight. Money wasted, awful airline, awful aircraft, awful customer service. Book at your own risk."
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "spirit attempts to force a customer to register with their site in order to check-in, their ticket rates are a bit lower than the competitor but charge $50 for a normal checked bag, have one kiosk for check-in, very few gates /low priority at airports which causes longer waits for boarding and deboarding. Overall the experience with Spirit has been horrible and expensive. Their business practice includes deceptive pricing, over charging for luggage, and long waits. I will never fly with Spirit again."
Pros: "Flight attendants on both flights were very nice."
Cons: "Shortcut security was not honored flying to fll. Was unaware of the so calley "bare fare". I paid almost $300 for my flight just to find out the night before that I had to pay an additional $142 for my seats and bags. Water wasn't even free! Flight was late departing but arrived On time. On the way home I got to the airport 2.5hrs early even though I checked in the night before just to be put in a long line because spirit appeared under staffed. The Spirit agent took our long coiled line and put us outside in a straight line...in the cold and rain! While in line, a Spirit passenger was visibly and audibly crying. A few other passengers including myself tried to help her. We informed a near by agent who also saw the crying woman and told us "it's not my job. She's not my concern." The lack of care and customer service was ridiculous. Not only will I never fly spirit again but I will encourage friends and family to boycott them as well."
Cons: "Is my firts time and the last time I buy tickets with this airline, you have to pay for all, I don't recommend ."
Cons: "Getting our boarding pass to print was a nightmare. I kept getting password invalid. I was told I would be sent an e-mail to reset my password. NOT! made that request 6 times before I waited 30 minutes to get a rep on the phone. Was told I had to sign up to be a Free Spirit Member to get my boarding pass. No where does it say that that is what you had to do . The rep asked if I had booked through them? I told I booked through Kayak and he gave me attitude. Kind of huffed and I thought he mumbled "you get what you pay for" So I signed up and got our boarding pass. Coming back AGAIN we couldn't get our boarding pass. The rep at Cabana Bay got a Spirit rep on the phone I told her I was a Free Spirit Member and I gave her my member # and she me told I didn't exist in the system, but she would send me an e-mail to change my password Of course that didn't come through. I put Sara, from the front desk, back on the phone and between her and the rep we got our boarding pass. We started our vacation upset and aggregated. Ended it the same way."
Pros: "There was nothing about this experience that was handled well or in any way comfortable."
Cons: "First of all, the flight was delayed by more than 4 hours. Had I been notified of this, I wouldn't have had to get up at 3:30 AM to get to the airport in time. I signed up for the email notifications and am a Free Spirit member- none came. Second of all, the airport was in complete chaos. In fairness, there had been a shooting in terminal 2 the day before, but there was no organization, no one to ask about which line to stand in, etc.. A couple of employees with megaphones would have gone a long way. Third of all, the gate agent boarding the plane was the definition of rudeness and snarkiness. Fourth of all, while boarding the plane, and elderly man became unresponsive and had to be wheeled off the plane. Again, total chaos, no announcements. The man fell out of the wheelchair and expired on the jet bridge- ok, beyond Spirit's control, but the way the gate agent and flight attendants handled this was disgraceful. Fifth of all, we all had to disembark, then line up to board again, then they cancelled out flight. 6th- we were instructed to exit the terminal and rebook at the front desk. People ran like the starting gun had shot at the olympics. When I exited the terminal, we were met with a wall of people- total chaos- no one directing traffic- agents yelling at us- we were finally directed to line up outside in the hot sun (wearing black winter clothes) and proceeded to wait for over 4 hours. I didn't even get close to the desk- I booked a return flight on American for $430 out of Miami because people who were able to reach Spirit via phone (I was on hold for over 2 hours before my phone died) were saying they couldn't get us back to NYC until next week. I have tried unsuccessfully to reach Spirit to refund the money for my carry on bag."
Pros: "Nothing. Seriously."
Cons: "The fact you charge 45 dollars for a carry on...when other airlines allow you to have a free carry on. It's already bad enough you cram people on the plane like sardines with your nonsuffocient leg room. Like seriously, thenleg room you allow is great for an average 9 year old but when your 6 foot tall and you spend a 6 hour flight with your knees crammed into the seat in front of you and your seat is broken and won't recline. I remember why I always pay for for airfair to be comfortable and not packed like a sardine"
Pros: "It was inexpensive for such a short notice flight and the crew is nice."
Cons: "Spirit is HORRIBLE. They herd you into the plane like cattle. I'm a female of average height/weight and I was cramped. There is absolutely no room to move. The seats are so thin you can feel every movement behind you. There is no food, wifi, or in flight entertainment. They rob you with a $55 fee to carry on a bag. It is $3 cheaper to check one. They cancelled my flight and would do nothing about it, other than give me a partial refund and a coupon for a hotel. A coupon!!! They wouldn't even comp me for a hotel. Customer service reps were extremely rude after me waiting on hold for over an hour. Never again."
Cons: "Planes were dirty and were charged for carry on which I found to be a bit ridiculous. The money you save on the ticket ended up going to pay towards luggage so it would have been better going through a nicer airline. Planes really had nothing to offer as far as comfort. On the way home the plane had a 2 hour delay and no real customer service was given to a accommodate for the inconvincoence. Also had an issue with the luggage keeping us in the airport way longer than needed. Would not fly with spirit again"
Cons: "My flight was first delayed, then cancelled just a couple of hours before it was scheduled to depart. Spirit was unable/unwilling to provide me with another flight to my destination on the same day, and as a result I had to book a flight with another airline. Spirit refunded my ticket price, but I had to pay 5 times that much to book a flight with such short notice on another airline, and Spirit refused to do anything else to compensate me for this huge loss of money, due to their cancellation of the flight I had booked. I will never fly Spirit again."
Pros: "plane was big enough, flight was pretty much on time, the flight attendents did there job well"
Cons: "i had one small backpack on my back, my laptop, and one small duffel bag. i was charged $50 to check, and most of the overhead compartments were partially empty..... robbery. also no complimentary snack or drink. i paid for everything"
Pros: "I liked the cabin crew and the pilot."
Cons: "I didn't like the experience up to the point where I got on the plane. First the flight was delayed, these things happen though so I wasn't that upset about it. Then we got there an hour and forty minutes before departure and waited in line for baggage for an hour only to be told we were in the wrong line. Then we were directed to the correct line and waited another 20 minutes for baggage. Thankfully there wasn't a line for the security check and we made it to the gate with 5 minutes to spare. Needless to say we will never be flying this airline again."
Pros: "The crew was fun and light hearted"
Cons: "I should've read all the fine print about the fees. While it may seem like you're getting a great price is really not by the time you pay for everything from baggage fees there and back plus seats together there and back. Seats were uncomfortable and didn't recline. Not impressed"
Pros: "Nothing at all was pleasing to me"
Cons: "That was my first and the last time I will ever use spirit To many hidden fees they charge for every thing on board including oxygen."
Pros: "They didn't let me board!!"
Cons: "I arrived at airport 50 mins in advance. Ticket machine didn't work. Waited in long line to see wtf was up. Then they me I'm too late! Still 30 mins before flight board"
Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "It was FREEZING! No entertainment No leg room"
Pros: "NOTHING."
Cons: "I was notified at 9AM that I would miss my connecting flight (flight was at 6PM). I called Spirit to fix this ahead of time, they said I needed to speak to someone at the kiosk. The person at the kiosk said I needed to speak to someone at the gate. The lady at the gate said not to worry, we weren't even getting off of this plane. 10 MINUTES BEFORE BOARDING, I'm told that I'm going to miss my connecting flight and that my options were to either sleep over at Vegas or fly out the next day. I decided to fly out the next day, getting to my destination at noon. Got home, looked up the flight that the man at the kiosk booked me, AND IT WAS GETTING IN AT 11PM THE NEXT NIGHT. I called Spirit, infuriated that the rep literally lied to me, and asked to speak with a manager. I was told that a manager would have to call me back (WHAT?). I have yet to receive a phone call. I will never, EVER, EVER, fly Spirit airlines ever again."
Cons: "Arrived 40 minutes before boarding - plenty of time for our airport, but had ticket rescinded without refund or transfer due to rule."
Pros: "Not worth the cheaper air fare since you end up shelling out all your "saved" fare dollars on baggage and printed tickets."
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "You nickel and dime for every aspect of the experience, from checking in, selecting seats, carrying on my bag, getting a beverage. Then I get to my seat, which for some reason has a folding trey table within the seat, making the seat smaller than the others. I'm a tall man, this was the most uncomfortable flight I've ever flown on. I was squeezed into a seat that didn't fit. I won't be flying with you again, and will suggest my friends and family not as well. You charged $55 for a carry-on bag? What a con!"
Pros: "Flight was on time and boarding process is quick and efficient"
Cons: "Extra charges for everything! Paying for carry-on bags, assigning seats, drinks/snacks, etc. No inflight entertainment. No wifi option etc. At the end, you pay the same (or more) for the flight that lags traditional services."
Pros: "Staff at Spirit Airlines at OAK airport were really nice and helpful. Flight was cheap and safely flown - a huge plus for me, but plane not cleaned well and baggage fees were higher than the price of the flight itself so I am very lucky I brought a recognized carry-on bag."
Cons: "For my outgoing flight, my front pocket magazine holder in front was pretty covered in some stain that I couldn't recognize but was sticky to the touch. I knew they hadn't really cleaned the plane. I didn't really open that magazine holder because it was covered by this large stain. My return flight was changed several times due to mechanical issues but I appreciate that Kayak sent updates via email. It was 70% likely not to fly but ended up flying maybe 3 hrs later (good that they made sure to be safe than sorry) but I just couldn't wait to find out overnight that it would be cancelled at the airport, so I had to reschedule my flight for the next day and find housing and transportation again. I overheard other passengers complained out loud even on the initial flight to OAK airport that they would not travel with Spirit again, but I had more issues with my return flight than my outbound flight. All in all, I think you get what you pay for but this was probably not the best experience."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "I Never even made it to LA. Spirit airlines apparently charges 55 dollars to bring a carry on. This wouldn't make me as upset as i am right now but what pisses me off most is the fact that an employee for Spirit told me you only need to pay the added fee once for the flight to Oakland airport but needn't pay again for the trip back to LAX. This was a lie, for they said you must pay the same fee again for the the return flight. Seriously?! Not only that, but upon arriving 45 min early for the return flight to LAX, they told me I missed my flight and could not check in. To top it off, I was charged 75 $ to find the new flight which wasn't even for the next day but the day after for the same time.. Along side the very rude costumer service from your airline staff, you ask how i would rate my experience with Spirit airlines? TERRIBLE! I would give 0 stars if possible and never again will I book another ticket for Spirit airlines ever again."
Pros: "I eventually got what i paid for by yelling at the airline employees and badgering them to give me what I paid for."
Cons: "I was "late" meaning i made it to the gate before my zone boarded and I was charged a late fee of $10 for not making it to the airport 45 min before my flight. Because i was "late", again i put late in quotations because i made it to the gate before boarding, spirit airlines recorded that I was not present on that flight. I only found this out when i got the the airport for my return flight (1 1/2 hours before take off) and the counter staff informed my that i had "missed" my original flight and was absolutely not allowed to take the return flight i had paid for because i "missed" the first flight of my round trip ticket. I was given the option of buying another ticket or calling customer service with my own cell phone. When i asked if they could call or patch me through to customer service, the spirit employee said "no i can not do that." I quickly found out that their customer service is completely automated and just refers you back to the useless spirit airlines website. I then told the counter attendant that the customer service 800 number was automated and neither that nor the website (which i had to create an account with to receive any information at all about my reservation) had provided me with any information about my flight. The spirit employee had the nerve to tell me i was wrong and another argument ensued, to an end in which the spirit employee finally relented and called the manager on a walky talky. Then, finally, after at least 10 minutes of entering the wrong information into the computer they put me on stand by and let me proceed to security. I will say it again, spirit airlines is a scam, how they operate should be illegal and i will never ever give them a single penny for the rest of my life."
