Flight was smooth. Captain was polite and reassure our safe flight. Made it home 15 min early too!
Snarky flight attendant needs a break since she is obviously appears burnt out.
Would have been nice to start boarding earlier considering how many families there were and how long it takes to load young babies/kids etc onto a plane.
Pros: "On a quick 40 minute flight they still managed to serve coffee, water and snacks."
Cons: "I checked in last night for my flight and get to the airport early to check my bag but My seat Was given away because they said I did not check in, even though I went through security WITH MY BOARDING PASS. Then they Assign me a new seat and when I got on the flight, someone was in my seat"

Pros: "Boarding was quick and prices were fair"
Cons: "I sat next to a creepy intoxicated man during my flight and I was not helped out. When I first sat down he was speaking to me and trying to hit on me but I showed that I wasn’t interested. I didn’t even have to sit down to smell the alcohol on him. During the flight he tried to place his head on my shoulder and tried to get close to me. I was too worried to call for an attendant because he was intoxicated but when the attendants would come and offer us food I tried to make it clearly visible that I was anxious and uncomfortable and NOTHING. To make it worse they continued to serve him alcohol!!"
Pros: "Waiting in the departure lounce was ok"
Cons: "Boarding was kind of stupid Delta is boarding in Zones and starts at the front instead of starting boarding passangers sitting at the back of the plane and moving forward NO they do it the wrong way and due to that boarding takes to long and makes you frustrated."

Pros: "flight was on time..arrived early..friendly staff.."
Pros: "I like that I was able to request a window seat and was obliged to get another one."
Cons: "My flight was cancelled and I had anxiety about being at my destinations on time because I had to travel another hour away without knowing if my ride would be able to wait for me. However, I was booked on another plane that wasn't damaged which got me there on time,but once I arrived my luggage was no where to be found. I was promised my luggage on the same day,but I didn't get it until 11:30pm that night from a 2:40pm flight. I had to go out and spend money on toiletries,night wear and my medicine because of not having my luggage. Just totally disgusted by the overall experience and wouldn't wish it on anyone."
Pros: "Safely made it from Florida to LAX on time with no incidents"
Pros: "Nice upgrade since we didn’t have seats! Delta was a good flight but don’t ever wanna fly on Aeromexico again!"
Cons: "Had all my jewelry stolen from my luggage!"
Pros: "The airline itself did a good job."
Cons: "The Orlando terminal in Florida is the worst I have experienced. It's chaotic, the employees are extremely rude, there are no good restaurants, or stores, TSA is the worst at this airport. Avoid Orlando at all cost."
Pros: "Flight was good."
Cons: "we had a l long wait getting to the gate. Once we are the gate the delta staff had a hard time getting a wheelchair victim on the plane."
Pros: "One crew member, young dark haired woman, was particularly accommodating. Male attendant was firm and funny."
Cons: "Typical cramped plane, too many planes going out of same gate are simultaneously"
Pros: "Love the hospitality and the staffs kindness"
Pros: "Service was quick"
Cons: "Flight attendants acted as though we were imposing. The service was quick though. If they had smiled at the passengers any, I would have given them 5 stars"
Cons: "The flight was an older crew , seem a bit rude sometimes especially during the beverage and meal services. Not all of the flight crew was like that, but the over all feeling existed."
Pros: "boarding process was good food was okay not great not bad entertainment was good flight attendants and service excellent"
Cons: "food could have been better but arriving to destination safely is most important"
Pros: "The entertainment is good; several new movies"
Cons: "The dirty seats, the awful food and wine"
Pros: "Sitting in middle isle, just get elbowed a lot."
Pros: "Arriving in 2 hrs from Orlando to laguardia!"
Cons: "no tv .. I didn't like that we had to use our own electronic device to access the entertainment system."
Pros: "Flights were both on time and boarded quickly. Crew was wonderful!"
Pros: "The crew was really friendly and helpful. The plane was really clean"
Cons: "The boarding process was too long, there was a lot of people. It was kinda a mess. The sit assignment for people who didn't have sit assign was slow."
Cons: "My status as elite plus was no considered to get a good seat or the chance to upgrade. The frequent flyer number from Aeromexico was not passed correctly to Delta aystem and it caused all these issues"
Cons: "Had to buy a one-way ticket on American, as Delta would not move me to another airline,"
Pros: "The crew is always great. I liked the environment was cooler. It doesn't need to be refrigerator cold but keeping things on the cooler side is helpful."
Cons: "Boarding class and queuing for boarding is always a clusterf***. People will crowd the gate and board with the wrong class and that creates anxiety and leads to edginess. If a system could be worked out and enforced that would help."
Pros: "Great entertainment, good food, nice staff."
Cons: "You have to pay for the ckecked baggage ($25 per piece) and the airfare was not cheap."
Pros: "Delta changed me to another flight without charge and the rep was very accommodating and pleasant"
Cons: "Multiple delays, from 8:15 to 8:49 to 9:05 to 9:39 to 10:12 to 10:19 to 10:25. I am not joking. Honestly, if the delay is due to 'maintenance' for an incoming plane that has not left its originating destination, why quote any time at all? The check in rep did provide an announcement at 8:15 that although the time of departure had moved to 9:05 , he did not see how that was possible since our plane was on the ground in Richmond undergoing maintenance. I was in LGA. When I heard that, I changed to another flight, so the outcome was not as bad as it could have been. I am aware of these other times since my email is packed with Delta's notifications, which I welcome usually."
Flight delayed out of MCO cost me my connecting flight to PDX. Held up in a hotel in Phoenix…
Cons: "Nothing. Great flight"
Cons: "the pilot gave us a hard landing in Jamaica"
Cons: "No delay. Seats were horribly uncomfortable."
Cons: "On time and a little early"
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "If there were no delays"
Pros: "I was traveling with my mother who is handicap. The staff did so much to really help her. Although, the staff did everything and I mean everything to help us. TSA was an issue. Plus there was an language barrier."
Cons: "The assistant that they gave us was communicating with the TSA officer in Spanish who did not speak any English. The problem was she was over 75 and she does not have to remove her shoes. Instead of explaining to her what was going on she just took her shoes, which made my mother upset mad."
Cons: "It's a long time in an ever smaller seat"
Cons: "Weather delay 5 hours"
Cons: "Free movies lagged and got stuck on wifi. Gave up watching one."
Pros: "Nothing other than being able to get off this plane ride as soon as possible."
Cons: "Everything. Friendlier crew who could look like they enjoy their job more. Seat and comfort. Seat pitch was awful for a major airline. Some discount airlines seats were more comfortable w/ more space. Boarding was archaic. Climbing stairs down to tarmac, bus ride, climbing up stairs to plane."
Pros: "The crew was great!"
Cons: "American has had maintenance delay nightmares all week. Including this flight, where we switched gates and still was delayed significantly."
Pros: "Seat was good."
Cons: "Paid extra for free booze, but they didn’t serve booze, except to first class of course. Saying the flight was so quick, they weren’t even getting it out."
Pros: "The crew was extremely friendly"
Cons: "Boarding time. It took forever"
Cons: "Better seat cushions! There is not much padding & the seats get really hard."
Pros: "Crew was amazing"
Cons: "The hardest thing about any air travel is cramp seats in coach. That being said, AA makes the best of your cramp quarters with free online movies and television, and a power outlet for your cell on the headrest in front of you, which is so convenient and makes up for the tight seating!"
Cons: "AA has a tendency of delaying flights."
Pros: "Clean and comfortable main cabin."
Cons: "Lead flight attendant too casual. Didn’t wear jacket, didn’t even know he was a member of the crew until he walked the aisles mid flight. Wore Bluetooth headset around his neck. Inflight WiFi entertainment didn’t work at all. Internet (AA.com) seemed to function."
Pros: "Loved the interactive headrest system. Games, movies and more. Kept me so busy that the trip seemed like minutes instead of hours. Very comfortable seats!!"
Cons: "Tight squeeze down the aisle and heaven forbid you drop something while seated because you pretty much had to put your head on you neighbors lap to get it."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 40 minutes but then they intentionally lied to the passenger's and boarded the airport to tell them they will be moving away from the gate and park for 1.5 hours. Sneakly little unethical you know what ."
Cons: "Delayed, poor info, no snacks, not even water. Lady at gate was rude. And unpleasant. Nobody kept us informed correctly and when we asked we were treated unkindly. Horrible experience with AA. Will avoid"
Pros: "Offered a seat in the exit row at the gate. Accepted it, of course. Duh."
Cons: "Boarding was very slow with so many passengers wanting to carry on all their earthly belongings. I was unaffected as I had checked my bag at the gate, but for some there was no room at all. Some early boarders were allowed to exceed the one-bag in the overhead rules."
Cons: "This flight was delayed by almost 5 hours. While I understand there are some delays sometimes, this was the ONLY flight to Greensboro out of DCA, and the times kept changing throughout the day, even though the gate agents knew that the issue was that the crew was delayed. There should be backup crew available and when there are delays, the passengers should be kept informed. There should be other flight options available when this happens. I never received an apology from anyone I encountered throughout the process, and some personnel were rude even though I was polite."
Pros: "The plane was nice and clean. Boarding went well and staff nice on boarding. Service was smooth though food not great but then it is airplane food. The morning continental food was nicely packaged and good."
Cons: "The plane boarded and left gate a little late but had a maintenance issue with one of its doors so plane had to return to gate. We finally got off the ground almost three hours late but staff tried to be as helpful as possible though they didn’t know much. It was good the passengers seemed fairly patient and accepting. The horror was at the airport in Venice where it took over two hours in very long line just to get through passport check."
Pros: "Entertainment offered several options to choose from"
Cons: "Food, only one beverage was offered"
Cons: "Delay and bumpy landing"
Pros: "Boarding was easy, flight attendants very accommodating. Pilots made up flight time and arrived early, in spite of late departure."
Cons: "Leg room! Seems American has less space between seats and seemingly narrower seats than other airlines."
Pros: "new plane, on time"
Cons: "Somewhat bumpy landing if I'm being picky..."
Pros: "Arriving on time for the next connection"
Pros: "I like to party. But besides that, I like flying with my instruments and not having to gate check them. Yay!"
Cons: "I didn’t like the way the employees were so friendly! It was not fair. I wanted to be angry and my opportunity was taken from me!"
Pros: "Nice modern plane. Even though the flight was delayed, we ended up boarding earlier than expected and arrived pretty close to our original expected arrival time."
Cons: "The crew was nice and everything, but they weren't very good at making announcements on the loudspeaker. You could tell they didn't really know what they were saying or haven't practiced. One lady was trying to make a sales pitch for a new master card and you could tell she was reading and there were long pauses. My sense is that when using the loudspeaker to talk to the entire flight, one should be practiced and know what they're saying and communicate quickly and efficiently. Don't mean to be critical, but it's something that I noticed that could be improved."
Pros: "i like the wifi internet that AA provided. Great movies"
Cons: "The flight attendants were highly rude and i felt as if i was discriminated on. I was sitting in the back and the flight attendant who was suppose to assist us made us feel like i was a bother to her. First of all she just rudly dropped biscuits on my table didnt ask if i wanted and then I had to ask her for coffee, she didnt ask me if i wanted something to drink. Finally she brought my daughter and I some coffee. i ask for sugar and she said im very busy you have to wait....eventually she gave me one packet of sugar. I had to ask for another sugar for my daughter , so when i ask she gets upset and tells me i have to wait but there as a white who ask for assistance and she was very polite to her."
Cons: "American Airlines is always late"
Cons: "If media is not working, at least offer complimentary wifi. You'd expect that type of service at a restaurant or...literally anywhere you put your money."
Cons: "Nothing was together, missed connection. Had to buy a hotel in Phoenix"
Pros: "Liked how good he crew was"
Cons: "How late the take off was and boarding and landing an hour later then expected"
Pros: "Flight was great. Landed a few mins early"
Cons: "Not much selection of snacks. No tv"
Pros: "Online check in scanning my phone and having my seat already picked out. Informative while on the flight and great spacing. Also like to know that there still is free carry ons allowed."
Cons: "It was delayed because of late or no show flight attendants. Thankfully two women who just got done offered to do the flight, so our flight wasn't cancelled."
Cons: "I've boycott A.A. for 15 years now. The only reason I flew is because I didn't have a choice with my connection flight. They still suck.!"
Pros: "Terri was very attentive."
Pros: "The flight was cancelled. There was not pilot"
Cons: "They could've fed us or least gave us more drinks when we were rerouted and stick in the Norfolk airport for hours."
Pros: "No delays except for weather."
Pros: "Everything was really good"
Cons: "Plane was very warm upon boarding due to issues with auxiliary cooling but informed it would change as engines turned on . I sat in row 20 and it was very cold during flight. Flight attendant inquired about comfort. It improved for about 10 minutes and returned to cold state . Noticed that one attendant put on some kind of jacket due to coldness . Nearby passengers retrieved blankets from their carry on baggage. Glad I had at least a light jacket to throw over me and that my legs were partially covered. Guess it's better to be too cool than too hot. Otherwise. It was s great flight ."
Pros: "That I finally arrived and got off the plane"
Cons: "The flight was delayed for three hours, we landed and sat in the plane for another hour to wait for a gate to open up. After apparently being hbaged three times. Terrible experience"
Cons: "Then take different fly from Florida to NC then waiting another fly at 5:45 pm to Dallas at 8:45pm. My fly should be 1:30 to Dallas 4:30pm non stop, that day we have appointments 8Pm. End up we back to Dallas 9Pm is bad. If we waiting for fly from 8Pm delay we may be home or be home at midnight time that is very bad."
Pros: "fligh attendence was kind"
Cons: "The set confort"
Pros: "Everything except the turbulence"
Cons: "less turbulenceE"
Pros: "Everything perfect"
Cons: "The only issue that would have improved the trip would be if tickets were free Lol"
Pros: "The crew was great despite the delay."
Pros: "Entertainment is excellent!"
Cons: "Seats are very close together but the flight is short"
Pros: "That I made it to my destination."
Cons: "Slow and inefficient boarding, small seats, terrible WiFi, No overhead space."
Pros: "The flight was on time... that is about all..."
Cons: "Too late to download app once on plane so stuck for hours without entertainment on a long flight. They wanted to charge for most everything. First class was not as good as economy on other airlines. I have no idea why anyone would select United on purpose. I know I will not pick them again..."
Cons: "Seats that are too small for a 6 foot male. No leg room."
Cons: "The tv in front of us was not working and neither was the WiFi on our phones"
Pros: "Staff was super friendly and very helpful. They made boarding and the rest of the trip a wonderful experience."
Cons: "The small baby in my row had a hard time adjusting and cried a lot. Can small kids and their parents be seated in a separate area near the east of the plane where they're crying won't be so disruptive?"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled on our way back home from Gudalajara, was speaking to a representative for almost 2 hours to get me on the next flight the flight representative forgot to put me on hold and told everyone how rude i was, i was not rude i was just trying to get home. The representative couldn’t help me so i asked to be transferred to a manager, after 2 hours i was transferred and the manager hung the phone up. Long story short i called back spoke to another manager Yana and she was the rudest lady ever! She basically told me for waiting to long i will have to be placed on a flight 2 days after my cancellation flight. I started to cry because i needed to be home and she basically did not care so i took the date. Never again and i will warn everyone about this airline and their customer service!"
Pros: "Direct flight on time. The gate person help us with seat assignments."
Cons: "All the charges."
Cons: "I really hate that the major airline companies are charging for every little thing now. I shouldn't have to pay extra for entertainment & an outlet on a 2+ hour flight."
Pros: "There was plenty of room because I upgraded to 1st class. The crew was friendly."
Cons: "My tv didn't work for the first 20 mins of the flight and had to be reset. They only had one of the drinks I wanted. I would have thought being that it was around lunchtime they would have served more than a bag of chips or banana. In coach, you get a bag of pretzels and/ or a cookie sometimes. American Airlines provides warm nuts and a fresh baked cookie and I had to pay more for the upgrade than I did on American for a longer flight."
Pros: "I loved the stroopwaffle snack with my tea."
Cons: "I don't want to have to download an app for a service I don't use but every few months."
Cons: "Our home was damaged, and we were without power for 6 days due to Hurricane Irma. We called the airlines repeatedly in an effort to cancel the ticket before the flight. They refused to cancel the tickets. Heartless"
Cons: "The aircraft was full and they had a nonworking lavatory. And I asked the flight attendant that the lavatory was broken and he told me no there was somebody in there and he lied."
Pros: "Process was super easy, I even emailed my itinerary from United to kayak as requested, and I received updates about the gate, baggage and status before United!"
Cons: "No complaints whatsoever"
Pros: "Very nice crew!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 40 minutes."
Cons: "I miss my second leg because of United and had to wait 7 hours for the next plane.... ruined my vacation"
Pros: "United took GREAT care of me. I never departed MCO. They feared i would possibly be stuck in Houston until the next afternoon so they put me in hotel and gave me a food voucher to stay in Orlando. I am leaving to catch the first flight to Chicago this morning and make it to my final destination in time for my evening plans in Iowa. They turned a bad situation around for me. I love that"
Cons: "I would not have made connector in Houston due to delay"
Pros: "The flight was on time."
Pros: "At the airport was a little confusion to get pass TSA . There was construction and no clear directions to get to the gates , what made the lines extra long and people getting confused."
Cons: "Long lines to get through security"
Pros: "The boarding was fast"
Cons: "The seats were too crowded and not comfortable even for only 3 hours flight."
Cons: "I changed my seat and the seat I chose was very misleading. The pic showed a lot of leg room and when I sat down the leg room was the worst I've ever had in a place. Even the other 2 sitting next to me were surprised at how much leg room was absent!! Horrible flight. My body is all stiff because I couldn't stretch my legs out"
Pros: "The captain landed us safely"
Cons: "United employee working by the kiosk's was rude and totally UN-helpful. Told me to find someone else to help me. So I did and she was great, took a whole minute to do what needed to be done. Said that the rude employee was like that EVERY day w customers. I said, time to get rid of that employee! Then....a fuel spill, then unload people who were on the plane, then talk of cancelling, then ok to start boarding again. Late leaving, late arriving. But...free snack mix and direct tv to apologize. Big deal! Poor management for a monopoly company."
Pros: "The seat nice and comfortable"
Cons: "The pilot taking off was very rocky and landing was extremely rocky:(( not a very smooth flying pilot at all:(("
Pros: "Flight attendants were polite, attentive, and responsive. Very friendly, the captain kept us informed if turbulence was expected."
Cons: "The boarding process felt very disorganized, crew checking names with tickets was not very polite, and very curt with us."
Cons: "Not enough personnel at check-in area generates long waiting timenifnyoubneednassistance."
Pros: "Great service from take off to touch down!"
Cons: "No vhangibg table in 1st class cabin bathroom!"
Pros: "Arrived on time and early"
Pros: "Plane was very comfortable. I was able to take a good nap."
Cons: "After boarding we had to wait for an hour before we could take off because of a mechanical problem."
Cons: "I will never fly with United again because the practice of overbooking a flight jeopardized my trip to see my daughter. It is clearly a business decision and United makes more money that way; but at what cost? If I pay for a flight; at minimal, I expect to get to my destination. Service, comfort, entertainment and all other categories rank a distant second to getting to one's destination. That is the primary function of an airline and United has compromised that through the overbooking practice."
Pros: "They helped with the seating so my son and I could sit together."
Cons: "Can't complain about anything."
Pros: "The seats on the plane where nice and spacious. One employee from customer service named Aisha was a great help and took the time to listen to my issues and help get me on a new flight"
Cons: "The company overall is completely unorganized and majority of the employees are disrespectful and unwilling to help. During my layover in Washington DC my gate number was changed I was never informed despite signing up for notifications and having an eTicket that was never updated. When I asked one of the employees for the proper gate number they gave me another gate number that was incorrect I ran to that gate and the person there than give me the correct number but by the time I got to that gate I missed my flight After dealing with that I was lucky enough to talk to somebody who was helpful at the customer service table. She did her best to accommodate myself and three other friends unfortunately the next flight was over booked and only had two seats open. When I tried to explain to the attendants by gate A6 (Jackie and E Badi) that I have a party of four and I could not leave anyone behind they called security on me for not going on the plane. Once the security officers came they heard both stories saw that this was a waste of their time and told us all to file a complaint after getting the employees names. I would never recommend this airline to anyone traveling!!!"
Pros: "Everything went smooth"
Cons: "Everything was great so no comments"
Pros: "Boarding is an easy process"
Cons: "Little to no complimentary snacks"
Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "Assent into Lincoln faster than usual pilot did not get to see pilot."
Cons: "I didn't like the plane they still have the old planes and we have to pay for intrrnet , United needs to upgrade the planes"
Pros: "The in service beverages were given twice during the flight and the crew was friendly."
Cons: "As we were boarding, the agents were rude. Not as rude and nasty as Silva airways agents who threatened me."
Pros: "Texts about delays"
Pros: "Overall flight experience was my best of the year by far (10+ flights thus far)."
Cons: "First of all there is no tv on 5-6 hours flight i think that is not right.plus the food is weet from the microwave!! And tooo salty.. And many more hard to say now"
Pros: "Eugene is so easy"
Cons: "san jose airport parking"
Pros: "United airlines staff were polite and worked hard."
Cons: "I did not like that they printed my ticket for my connecting flight for EVA Air without any EVA Air markings. This meant that when I arrive at LAX I was giving directions to the United Airlines terminal when I really needed to be at the terminal for Eva Airlines. This caused me to almost missed my flight with Eva Airlines. For the remainder of my trip EVA airline staff were quite grumpy with me for being 45 minutes late boarding. I actually am thankful that I believe they held the plane that 45 minutes for me. It just seems too convenient that the plans out there that long after its scheduled takeoff."
Pros: "They offered great drinks and snacks. All of the employees were professional and kind."
Cons: "The seats were filled with people who didn’t know where to sit. Overhead storage was taken. Narrow aisles are NOT for the tallest or Broad shoulder people. Over all it was the extra fees, amount of space between the seats and the lack of upgrading seats options once aboard that slightly make me not want to book with the company again."
Cons: "Our bags got lost"
Pros: "Great flight for the price"
Cons: "Nothing- there were delays but not due to the airline"
Pros: "The boarding process was organized and the plane was clean. The service was top notch. I was a little surprised about the price to check a bag ($40 each way). I must consider that when comparing rates in the future. I will definitely fly with them again."
Pros: "The flight crew was professional and cordial. No problems. Flight quicker due to tailwind than indicated. Excellent!!"
Pros: "Plane was new - very impressive!"
Cons: "Plane was delayed with no explanation, No free snacks - just free water, high baggage fees"
Pros: "Frontier is great with boarding"
Cons: "Nothing but there is only food for purchase"
Pros: "The flight itself was a nice flight. The captain and first officer were communicative and the few times we experienced turbulence I felt like they immediately tried to minimize it. I had a good amount of room in my seat (I was not in an emergency exit row) and I had no problems with my luggage."
Cons: "There was a 2 hour delay to take off. When your flight is at 7am and you've woken up at 3:30 or 4 to get to the airport on time, it's a bit frustrating to wait an extra 2 hours to leave. The gate agents were woefully uninformed and when they did communicate with passengers it was vague and unhelpful. The gate agents kept referring to the need for "maintenance" on the aircraft. It doesn't inspire a great deal of confidence in the soundness of the plane to hear that the maintenance crew is trying to "fix something in the cockpit." The Departures monitors and my Kayak app were giving me delay updates before the gate agents were. At one point we switched gates (it was the gate directly across from the original gate) and I watched as passengers at one gate literally traded places with passengers at another gate because the flights had swapped gates. It was comical. Overall, just a disorganized, uninformative, frustrating mess."
Pros: "The price of the ticket was cheap!"
Cons: "If you want a snack you have to pay for it. Even Water will cost you. The prices are reasonable for a plane ride though. Seats are very close together unless you get the exit row. Each bag you bring cost you unless you are active duty military. Active duty gets one checked bag for free but you have to take it to the ticket counter the day of the flight. A carry on will cost you. Pay before you get to the airport. Both flights I took were 30-45 minutes late due to the plane being cleaned. The luggage was also slow coming down. An airport employee told me that 2 other major airlines bump Frontier a lot when it comes to unloading luggage but I didn’t confirm that with Frontier."
Pros: "Arrived in RDU on time"
Cons: "The check back line took an hour+ to get through. The line stretched down the terminal. They had to create multiple holding pins for everyone waiting. Major staffing issue. This only applied to frontier. No other airline had a long line. Don’t fly this airline if you’re in a hurry or prefer not getting to the airport 3+ hours early."
Cons: "We arrived 1 and a half hours before our flight,,,, waited in line to check in for the same amount of time only to be refused to board.. there was not enough agents for the amount of passengers trying to check in...."
Cons: "Flight delayed 2-1/2 hours, which I understood, the weather was horrible - BUT First the desk clerks were rude and as if people weren't irritated enough this didn't help Then the flight attendants were rude - all around miserable flight AND they charge for EVERYTHING - you may think you are getting a good deal on tickets, but you pay $40 for a checked bag, the same for a CARRY ON you pay for a decent seat they don't even give you peanuts without charging you I am done with Frontier - will never fly it again!"
Pros: "Price but it would have been worth it to pay more money to fly with a different airline."
Cons: "This happened the Thursday before Memorial Day. My flight was delayed 34 min, 2 hrs, cancelled, and delayed for 7 hrs. This all happened in a 2 hr time span. The counter staff was very incompent and none of them seemed to know what was going on. They gave us a $10 lunch voucher and $15 dinner voucher which did nothing for the huge inconvenience it caused me. I had to change my rental car reservation to another company and cancel dinner reservations. I will never fly Frontier again!!!!"
Pros: "In the boarding, counter lady help me by giving priority to check in after understanding I am a bit late"
Cons: "cabin crew was awful , especially one of them really need a psicological review about how to react and handle situations."
Pros: "I got home, late, but I got home."
Cons: "Flight was delayed, long wait time, customer service was horrible, crew was not friendly."
Pros: "Got me where I wanted to go,"
Cons: "I am allergic to dogs and cats. This is a growing problem for me because it seems that the rules are looser and people keep a pet on their lap and service animals are increasing. There were two on board ( One not a service animal, the other one was) and I spoke to the gate agents who were mostly uninformed and unsympathetic . There is an overall lack luster with everything about FRONTIER and I get the no-frills / buy what you need concept, but there is no accommodation for people with serious allergy, and there is an increasing ability to get the certificate to have a service animal for just about any malady it seems. I respect the need for a service animal. However the passengers who have to sit in an airplane with recirculating air with dander are largely misunderstood. I asked to speak to a FRONTIER supervisor and there was no one to be seen and I got a stock answer from the gate agent in Orkando who was chewing gum so hard, it was difficult to have a conversation. Eventually I gave up my good seat to go further back from the animals who were seated up in front rows. That makes it worse when you have to pass by them to get back to your seat. And again, the gate agents were not helpful in getting me on the plane pre-boarded. Yes I take medication and sometimes I am OK and for the record, there is no truly "hypoallergic dog" for me. That is the excuse I also get. It is tough to live with when people around you do not understand . I was also recently deplaned on United airline because of this problem. I cannot stop flying it is always something now I have to worry about until I get to the gate. I do not wish it on anybody but if you had the reaction of welts itching and swelling it would be better understood as something that needed to be addressed by the airlines. Thank you for reading this long note."
Cons: "First I bought a ticket from Spirit Airlines SFO to MCO for 309$, then I saw charges from frontier Airline, frontier airlines bought a ticket for me too for 287$, when I was just watching checking the price. Then I compared the tickets, both the time, but from Frontier Airlines was cheaper then I stayed with frontier and cancel the other reservation from Spirit Airlines the next day I see frontier airlines also cancelled that reservation and I had to rebook another ticket for 496$, the price went up, then I had to pay 187$ extra, IT WAS A FRAUD JOB FROM FRONTIER AIRLINES, I can prove everything above with the receipts and the dates on it, the worse experience I had"
Pros: "Nothing abt it"
Cons: "I have traveled many places and have NEVER encountered such horrible service in an airport as I did at your Orlando airport / Frontier counter. I checked hours before was in the airport and long lines an hour and 1/2 before flight leaving and due to your Frontier agents at this counter I was unable to board. This happen to more than one passenger in line with me. This agent continued to argue with me rolling her neck and head at me rather than get me to t gate with an available half hour before take off. There was vomit at the counter which they refused to call anyone to come and clean up but overall NO ONE was on task. I will dispute the extra charges I have incurred due to this fiasco and will NEVER fly Frontier Airlines again."
Pros: "Managed to pick up fireworks in SC."
Cons: "Frontier managed to oversell both my flight out and all connecting flights to Orlando. After buying tickets several months in advance, I arrived at the airport to find both myself and several other passengers were unable to board because Frontier has sold more tickets than seats, likely counting on some passengers to not arrive. As a result, I could either by a new ticket at 8x the price I paid Frontier, or pay for a taxi and then drive 9 hours to Florida and 9 hours back. I ended up driving, and after several hours on the phone with Frontier managed to get a refund- solely for the original price of the tickets. They refused to offer any additional compensation. The moral of the story is that I paid a few hundred dollars to Frontier so that they could wildly disrupt my travel plans, cost me about 12 hours of my time, add in some surprise expenses, and reluctantly give me back my money and call us even. Next time I'll pay more for a ticket that has a solid chance of actually being worth something. Never again, Frontier."
Pros: "The crew was nice!"
Cons: "What Frontier doesn't tell you ahead of time is you have to pay for your seat and baggage both ways!!! This cost me an extra $82!!!! The seats weren't as comfortable as on a American flight either. I'll definitely use another airline next time!"
Cons: "Took 2 hours to just check a bag in"
Pros: "There was not one positive thing that I can say about my experience"
Cons: "We had already paid the luggage fee and just needed to drop off our bags for our MCO to DEN flight. It started with no curbside check-in. Incredibly poor service at ticketing/baggage check. A mass of people. No directions. Even employees (when asked, not one volunteered any information) didn't know which line was which. Only four people working the counter. And then the airline called for people leaving on a flight after ours and brought those passengers to the front of the line. When we got to the front of the line the employee's response was "You need to be here three hours before the flight." For a midweek domestic flight? ATA treated us like this once. They're long gone. Goodbye Frontier."
Pros: "The plane was clean, the crew was friendly, everything ran smoothly. I'll fly them again on purpose."
Pros: "Price was great."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled with only 2 hour notice, so already at airport. Staff was overwhelmed, so no help at counter. After 8 days, still waiting for refund."
Pros: "NOTHING! With all of add-ons don't even save money."
Cons: "My flight from Orlando to Raleigh is still on the ground after almost three hours. Stood in line for one hour just to drop off bag that was already checked in. First the plane had too much fuel so had to wait one hour for some to be removed. Not a big deal but two hours after that was done we are still sitting on the ground! I have flown for forty years and NEVER had such a bad experience. Feels like they don't have their act together to handle anything."
Pros: "I had no problems with the crew or employees at frontier."
Cons: "I was aware that this airline charged for carry-on's and beverages that other airline companies usually provide fee of charge. However, there were several other issues that I had that soured the experience for me. First of all, the seats were considerably less comfortable. The backs of the chairs were plastic, the try table was so small it might as well not have been there at all, and the leg room was terrible. On the way back there was a line of about 300 people at the Frontier desk to check baggage. I don't know if they simply did not staff appropriately, or if there were too many flights scheduled to take off around the same time, but I've never seen anything like it. They did attempt to fix the issue by pulling the people who had sooner flights to the front of the line, which I was thankful for or I would have certainly missed the flight. However, this could have been avoided by planning flights more appropriately, and certainly was not the most fair approach. Finally, we had to wait for about 45 minutes for our checked bag after the flight as well. This could have been the fault of the airport itself, but I've never had an issue with baggage at this airport before. Overall, I don't think the extra saving was worth it, and I'll likely be flying with a different airline in the future"
Pros: "fast flight"
Cons: "it cost $40 for a carry on which is kind of high. Also it was $45 for the carry on back- not sure why it was $5 more for coming back."
Pros: "Initially the cost of the airfare seemed too good to be true....we ended up paying $190 in addition to the cost of the tickets."
Cons: "1.Hidden costs - we have carry on luggage that ALL other airlines are fine with, but when we got to the gate to board they told us they weren't for carry on and had to pay and additional $60/piece($120 total) and threatened that we couldn't board if we didn't pay. Then they allowed us to carry them on and they fit easily in the overhead compartment. 2.Mass confusion boarding on the return flight. There were designated long lines, then other personnel would make changes to the lines confusing everyone even more. 3.We had our bags pre checked, our boarding passes printed the night before (as recommended by the airlines) to expedite the boarding process and we still had to stand in line with the other passengers who had not completed this ahead of time. It did not expedite anything for us. 4.Seats do not recline, very uncomfortable. 5. No vomit bags....we had a very turbulent decent and many people in need of sick bags. Many ended up vomiting into their personal bags!"
Cons: "No magizines to read."
Pros: "Good rate, comfortable seating, nice crew."
Cons: "Baggage prices"
Pros: "The efficiency of the boarding process. It was organized and fairly expedient."
Cons: "The exorbitant additional fees. Absolutely absurd to charge for a seat and carry-on luggage in addition to the plane ticket itself. My carry-on suitcase is HALF the size of the traditional size and paying $30 to bring it on the plane is insulting. The chairs were uncomfortable. They don't recline, no head rest, and no blankets were on board which made resting for my 5 hours across the country EXTREMELY uncomfortable. For all the extra fees you'd think a movie and some snack packs might be available. Then again, with the trays too small to fit even my mini iPad, there'd be no place to put them. No in-flight entertainment was a bummer too. I've usually been so happy on Frontier. Bit this experience will keep me from flying Frontier ever again."
Pros: "Staff was friendly."
Cons: "Felt secure."
Pros: "We were forced to wait 15 hours with one delay after another. With one excuse after another. My flight was scheduled for 1001 am. We did not board the plane on time. It was 1145 pm and I did not get to Cleveland at noon, no it was 3 o'clock am with no chance to rent a car to go home I had to call my daughter! And the best part was that my 75 year old wife had to endure this.they would not cancel the flight and allow me to take my wife to a hotle. There were parents with infants as well that was not happy.So to Hume it may concern You have lost several customers because of your failure to take care of your customers!"
Pros: "The fact that they charge for carry on luggage encourages people not to bring those over sized bags. So finally there is some room for your stuff."
Cons: "The fact that you find out after you booked that there is "NOTHING" included. You want to check a bag, "That cost extra" You want to bring a carry on bag, "That cost extra" You want to sit with your wife, "That cost extra" You want something to drink, "That cost extra" The worst part is that you have to pay extra for each flight separately. By the time you add all those "That cost extra" together, you can book a flight with an airline that at least serves you a cup of coffee during the flight."
Pros: "Great price and more comfortable than some of the delta flights I've been on. I've read some complaints, but my personal experience did not reflect any of those issues. I will definitely fly with them on my next trip."
Cons: "It's pay to play. I can see where some people might get all snotty about not wanting to pay for every service, but, for people like myself, it's perfect. For a round trip to Orlando for $70... I don't mind sitting next to strangers in the middle seat, I'll survive not having snack and drink service, and I can keep to myself for 2 hours."
Pros: "Was stuck after hurricane Matthew- only flight that I don't think had a delay! Friendly staff, comfortable seating, plenty of storage space. Would definitely recommend again"
Pros: "The crew, as always, were very polite and helpful and trying hard to make up for errors that were not their fault."
Cons: "My flight was 4 hours late taking off, which was blamed on weather amass although I fond this questionable after reviewing weather in the areaspam involved, I'll give them that. My flight on the way back was over 4 hours delayed for no reason that I could glean from speaking with representatives. We got no advanced notice even though the plane had not yet left a destination around 4 hours away. We were told a plane was coming from another airport and would be there by 6. The plane did not arrive until 9. No explanation. No compensation. Nothing."
Cons: "need bigger tray table"
Pros: "The crew was very nice."
Cons: "This is definitely the bottom of the heap when it comes to airlines. They offer a competitive price on a flight, but once booked they nickel and dime you until the price is higher than a better airline. They charge for seat choice on the whole plane, snacks and drinks, carry on and checked luggage, and there is no entertainment. Plus the seats felt like cardboard, and didn't recline. Definitely not a good choice for a red eye, or any flight over an hour long. Actually, no matter how short your flight is, you'll probably be more comfortable taking the bus. Two big thumbs down."
Pros: "Flight on time, staff courteous, plane very clean"
Cons: "Everything was great"
Pros: "not a hitch!"
Cons: "had to pay $40. to carryon suitcase"
Pros: "Friendly crew and comfortable flight!"
Cons: "All the additional charges!!! I would rather know the true price of fair when booking flight! Probably will go with another carrier in future!"
Pros: "The Price was awesome"
Pros: "Clean air plane"
Cons: "The bag fees ,"
Pros: "Simple. No surprises. Low cost."
Cons: "check in took too long. Even though we pre checked the bag drop line moved slower than check in line. Not enough agents."
Pros: "I woke up to an email 31/2 hours before my daughters flight was suppose to leave Atlanta informing me that the flight was canceled. Called customer service where the man I spoke with was unable to or unwilling to tell me anything except that "yes it looks like the flight was canceled". His suggestion was to have my sister drive my daughter an hour and a half to the airport to see if there "might" be a flight available through another airline. Frontier did not have any flights going to or near RDU that day.Since my daughter had to be in Raliegh that day I spent the next 10 hours in the car going to get her. I did receive a refund but only because I requested one,otherwise they just don't refund automatically."
Cons: "Customer service represenitives are not very informative. The flights may be slightly cheaper but you have to pay for checked baggage as well as carry on bags. When checking her in the night before and picking a seat in coach my sister had to pay a "fee" for her seat, so an additional fee of $57 dollars for one bag and a seat.... Really?"
Pros: "The ontime schedule of the flight which went well"
Pros: "The flight landed early."
Cons: "We spent 15 minutes taxi-ing off and on the runway. Baggage was sent out 27 minutes after passengers left the aircraft. My seat was at the end of the aircraft, and I had to pay extra for that, and had sticky gum all over it. When I told the flight attendant, she said, oh no, really? The flight attendant did nothing to help me be reaseated or clean my seat. After a passenger vomited, the flight attendant did not help the passenger by providing anything to cleanup. The aircraft stank of vomit as we sat in the runway for 15 minutes. The flight attendants woke me up to sell their credit card, but not to provide refreshments/water. The announcements went on for over 10 munutes. My seat was surrounded by screaming and crying infants and nothing was done to help those mothers calm their children down. The seats had very little leg room for anyone my height and taller (5'9"), despite having to pay for the seat. I will not fly Frontier ever again. The upfront low price doesn't reflect the baggage, carry-on, and seat add-on fees, so it's very deceiving."
At least offer the people a cup of free coffee or soda
Cons: "Not changes the schedules"
Pros: "you have to buy the upgraded seats for a positive experience."
Cons: "Having entertainment on the flight."
Cons: "Too many delays... delay at boarding, delay on tarmac before takeoff, delay after landing because gate was occupied, and delay with jet bridge"
Pros: "My flight was easy"
Cons: "Flight was delayed, then we were stuck on the plane for an hour, had to get off the plane, was told it would be an hour, then 5 minutes and back on the plane-only to sit there for another hour!! And we were refused any snacks or beverages-even when we said we would pay!"
Cons: "The space between the seats could be better"
Pros: "Announcements not clear in airport. Attendants on board rushed, not interested. Giving info and answering questions as if from only a rehearsed script. Seats extremely uncomfortable. The back of the seat.as well as no room at all to sit! The other passengers are right on top of you touching at all times. Not pleasant. Aisles very tiny. If ever a major problem with the aircraft, it would be very hard to exit the plane quickly and safely. Very nervous about this airline. Pilot seems capable and flight was smooth, so I guess that’s a plus. The first time I flew spirit, they didn’t give us the baggage carousel and the attendant in airport didn’t know. Tried another and was given a wrong carosel. The psssaengers found it on their own and called out to others. I always fly BDL to MCO and back. I travel alone or with children. Not much choices on the flights times etc."
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable and crew expended one hour trying to get the count right"
Pros: "Spirit always gets to your destination earlier than the others flights."
Cons: "It is what it is. If anything happens to your flight or missing your flight the 100 dollars fee is a bit rediculous. The worst is when u get to the check in booth, they say it with such an attitude. I understand the fares are cheaper, but give your costumers a brake on the charges. Costumer services at the airport needs a bit of an improvement."
Pros: "Our flight attendant Carmen was Amazing!!"
Pros: "The flight crew was polite and attended to my needs and they were actually funny."
Cons: "I did not like the limited food selections and the small portions that were served. Also, I always like it when the pilot informs you of the area of the country you are flying over. For example I recently took a flight from Las Vegas Nevada to Melbourne Florida and that pilot on Delta explained where landmarks were all along the way. That is something comforting about a pilot connecting with his crew and the people aboard the flight. So I would really like that if Spirit would include that. Additionally I do like onboard entertainment but maybe the fares would have to reflect that."
Pros: "The crew was friendly"
Cons: "They had a delay and a child keep banging the back of my seat"
Pros: "Good arrival time no delays."
Cons: "Carry on baggage fee which is $50 which is completely ridiculous I had to pay for a thing of water which was also ridiculous.. the seats were okay but could have more comfort in them. When I checked and I had to pay a $10 fee to check in with my plane ticket which is ridiculous.. He didn't see my carry-on bag so I had to pay an extra $50 at the gate which should have been caught at the moment I checked in. I probably won't fly with Spirit Airlines again if not very often. Unless there's a lot of direct flights to Florida I don't see much reason why I would fly with them anymore."
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."
Pros: "My flight was delayed twice. The flight to Detroit was leaving from a gate nearby. Since my final destination was in Michigan, I asked to be transferred to the Detroit flight, since I would not make my connecting flight to Flint because of delays. The gate agents were wonderful. With 4 minutes before boarding closed, they switched me from the Chicago to the Flint flight, without complaint or additional cost. Very much appreciated!"
Cons: "The initial email regarding the flight delay came before 7 am, the second less than an hour before boarding. The gate agents didn't know about the second delay until they were informed by passengers receiving the email."
Cons: "My flight got cancellled and I was promised a refund but never received it."
Pros: "Staff gave me a refund for return flight& baggage fee"
Cons: "I was supposed to depart at 10 pm. Flight was delayed twice via email & again once I arrived at the airport to 1:40 am. Around 1 am, the flight was cancelled. There was almost an angry & very immature mob at the gate desk for flight rebooking or refunds. There were few flights for the following evening, which sold out quickly; then rebooking were for the day after that. They did not offer to cover any hotel arrangements. The staff handled it pretty well, but it made my wait to get a refund even longer. I had to find a rental car to drive overnight from Orlando to Atlanta. I finally got home at 10:30 am."
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!!!!"
Cons: "The flight was delayed, there was 4 of us and we had to pay $80 for 1 luggage... they didn't give anything complimentary not even a bottle of water. There were no t.v. def. Not using spirit again"
Pros: "Nice attention from airline personnel"
Cons: "Checking in at San Juan airport took longer and e-systems didn't work ok"
Pros: "The gentleman speaking on the microphone was funny."
Cons: "Seats were terrible and uncomfortable. Charge for everything, nickel and dime for everything. My luggage was over by 2lbs (42lbs) and was charged another $30.00 aside from the $40.00 I already paid for my luggage. They also try to get you to fill out for a credit card to earn points for a free flight. . I will NEVER fly Spirit again."
Cons: "Did'nt like the extra $100 for checked bag fee while other airline charge only $50"
Pros: "Crew was very nice."
Cons: "Ridiculous charges for everything you get on other carriers for free: printing boarding pass, choosing a seat,water, carry on bag allowance. Additionally seats are extremely small(and I am not a big person), no inflight entertainment available at all, no option for an electronic boarding pass and additionally the flight was delayed. With what I paid for the flight itself, the charge for 1 carry-on bag and the fee for selecting a seat at the time of booking, my total cost was more than what I would have paid on Delta or American. Will not be a repeat customer of Spirit."
Pros: "Comfort, clean seats"
Cons: "Fare cheap but all the 'musts'made it more than any other airline: $9 Online fee; $25 kiosk fee (which didn't work and had to pay $50 fee to check in with clerk; had to check bag approved for under seat/carry on (12"c12") and since kiosk didn't work, charged $60 for 1st bag, even though I paid $60 for a 'first checked bag' and 2nd bag should hAve been cheaper. It was TSA agent who told me I would be required to check the bag by Spirit as it didn't meet carry on criteria and if I didn't check now, would be $100 at gate. I told her that I was traveling back with same TSA approved (and Spirit online rules) and she became rude and rejected my bag (and did a complete body search) so, I was forced to check the bag or miss my flight. I asked her and the Spirit clerk (3) if this was a TSA/ Spirit racket with kickbacks for TSA and/or Spirit and NOT on of them laughed, smiled, or denied this question. Mever again will I fly Spirit airlines or recommend to anyone!"
Pros: "the flight itself was fast and not bumpy at all, other than this everything else was not great."
Cons: "hated everything about it and will not be flying with them again, also they seemed more inclined to get you to buy stuff, you dont even get a complimentary cup of water, how sad."
Cons: "On arrival at the airport, help was needed to get the boarding pass but there was no one at the ticket counter to help. For that reason, Joe missed the flight. When the representative did get to the counter, she was of no help in helping him get to his destination. He was marked as a "No Show" and his reservation was cancelled. Joe was told his return flight was confirmed. He was able to make arrangements with another airline after spending another $300 to get to Orlando. However, when he confirmed his flight home, he was told it was canceled because he "no showed!" He talked with people in Orlando and I called the phone number on the email received from Spirit after he missed the flight. I spoke with 3 different people who only wanted to tell me their policy. I needed help in getting Joe back to Akron, Oh. They could only tell me that we would have to make a new reservation and pay even more money for him to get home. They did not honor the money that had already been paid to them. They did not help us at all. They could only quote their policy, which was a moot point by that time!!!"
Cons: "$50 luggage charge was disgusting."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Attendants were rude Seating was uncomfortable Flight was very turbulent"
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."
Cons: "The alert was finally sent to us well past the time we would have been going through security. Luckily, we had checked on our own through a third party app,. No alternative flights were available, so we had to book on another airline and cancel the Spirit tickets. The credit policy is draconian. We may not be able to meet the redemption requirements and will probably lose the entire value. The process created so much frustration and wasted so much time. The low-ish price is simply not worth it."
Cons: "Flight cancelled due to weather. Supposed to leave on Saturday, told it would be Monday or Tuesday before we could get out of Boston. Airline has no reciprocal agreement to put us on other flights. Agent gave us wrong info, told us to take refund, and come back if we couldn't get on another airline. We took his advice, came back, and the flight cost was over $1,000 each. We will never book on Spirit again."
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."
Pros: "Made it home in one piece"
Cons: "Only one suitcase, otherwise had to pay $52 for anything extra. Some passengers had more than one case/bag without charge. The staff acted like they did not enjoy their professions. Charging for snacks seemed outrageous & asinine. The flight was very rough and at some points very frightening. Dropped down more than once with my stomach having a pit. The passengers clapped their hands when we landed as if it wasn't safe. Not happy, extremely disappointed. The fight to Florida from Detroit was awesome & pleasantly surprised. I probably wouldn't recommend Spirit to friends or family."
Pros: "Last minute trip and it was better than what I thought it would be for the price"
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 paid for 5 tickets so I liked the price."
Cons: "It cost me more than the price of 1 ticket to check only 2 bags both ways for the 5 of us. Checking in in Orlando was the worst experience ever and I fly at least monthly. We were put in 3 different lines in 30 minutes. The last line we were put in, the agent said she would have to charge us for PRINTING OUT BOARDING PASSES though we were told to go to that line without boarding passes. Security was terrible experience. Took forever. I nearly missed the flight. The door had already been closed when I got there. Airline staff were surly even though it was not my fault. Flight was good. Will never fly Spirit again"
Cons: "I was charged $65 for a carryon that was an inch too large to be personal. Ridiculous"
Pros: "Boarding and exiting were somewhat rapid. Got my bag rapidly at Lax. But...."
Cons: "This is the worst carrier I have ever flown. I will never never fly them again. I'm not sure what there business model is: "fly us once, then you'll know to never fly us again?" Are there ever repeat spirit customers? So strange. I get the bare fare concept, but who flys with no luggage at at? The nit picking things. Money for this, money for that. I just sucks. If you read this, save yourself the trouble. I flew them once, will never again. It was so terrible and uncomfortable I don't have the time to list out all of the shortcoming. I would avoid them at all costs, you can always drive."
Pros: "The original flight from Latrobe to Orlando was cancelled leading to a scramble to find a new flight elsewhere, since the next Spirit flight available was in 2 days. Ended up cancelling the return flight with Spirit as well. Possibly someone without time constraints could handle taking a flight 48 hours later without any problems. But we were meeting another person who had flown to Orlando and arrived when we were originally scheduled to arrive. This caused problems for others because we didn't arrive on schedule. We never had a chance to experience Spirit Airlines and will never be buying tickets for flights with them again."
Pros: "You can tell the planes have been updated and they were comfortable."
Cons: "All of the joking done by the stewards on the overhead microphone. Too many jokes and their content, it wasn't funny at that point it was unprofessional. Super disappointed about having my luggage left at my city of origin and the earliest I was offered to get it returned was in 24 hours! So I'm in a new city with no clothes at all and the rest of my continents that were in my suitcase. Arranging to have the suitcase dropped off is not enough to counter the worry and financial inconvenience that comes with not having your stuff. I am thoroughly disappointed and will never fly with spirit again"
Pros: "The flights to Chicago and Atlanta were both smooth. I got to my final destination quickly. I was offered a coupon for 2,500 miles. The attendants were professional and respectful."
Cons: "My initial flight was canceled because of a mechanical error. My flight was supposed to leave at 7 am Saturday morning. I was supposed to be in Georgia around 8:30 am. The people in charge did very little to rectify the situation. The pretty much treated me and the other passengers like we were to blame for the plane not working right. I had to get booked on another flight which took me to Chicago, then Atlanta. It took me 14 hours to get home. Like I said, the airline didn't do much to rectify the situation. They gave me a lousy food voucher worth 7 dollars. Not much I could do with that. On top of that, I had to go through security twice. The second time I went through, a security officer threw my shampoo, sunscreen and body wash away because of some stupid regulation involving liquids. The first time I went through, nobody said anything about it. I hold the airline and the airport responsible for my stuff getting tossed out. I will at least be using the miles Spirit Airlines gave me. After that, I don't think I'll be traveling with them again"
Cons: "Computer system shut down for hours, everything had to be printed prior to boarding, I only had an IPad, so I went to a relative's computer and couldn't get it to work either. I arrived so much too early so I could get help."
Cons: "There were some very loud obnoxious people on board. The staff did nothing to settle them down and at the end of the flight a fight nearly broke out and only one staff member tried to calm the situation. all others just looked on."
Cons: "I thought the pricing was a little bit high for luggage. Although I got a cheeper flight through spirit initially, I paid about the same price as any other airline would have cost by the time I added in my bag and reserving my seat."
Pros: "seat space"
Cons: "Our family was separated on different flights and we had to pay an additional $251 to get our minor daughter moved to our flight."
Pros: "The flights are relatively cheap (if you opt for no luggage and random seating) and the attendants are always friendly but that's usually where the "pros" end."
Cons: "My flight was delayed and the time was changed more than once; I feel this is becoming a trend every time I fly spirit. My cramped and uncomfortable seat was covered in chips upon arrival and there was trash on the ground. This has been happening more now that they have previous passengers clean up instead of having them cleaned up between flights. Overall, if you want a good price you're gonna have to put up with all the woes of air travel."
