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: "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 ."
Pros: "0ntime quick boarding"
Cons: "cost to check baggage"
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: "Delayed more than once missed connecting flight and didn’t put me up in a hotel for the night"
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: "Delay and bumpy landing"

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!"

Pros: "the clerk at the boarding desk was kind"

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.!"
Cons: "Older plane"
Pros: "the wntertainment worked."
Cons: "This is one of the worst flights I've been on in a long time. When I arrived to the airport they had not assigned me a seat and did so at the gate. I was in the worst sear on the plane. Very last seat on the plane by the lavatories and newr the flight attendants station. The flight attendants talked very loudly the entire flight. so loud I woke up and needed to watch a movie to drown them out. i wdoubt I will be back on American any time soon."
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."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 2hrs when we landed had to wait on tarmac for 30 mins to get to gate"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours and another hour once we boarded. Traveled with small infant and no priority boarding or early access, even though flying alone. Charged for any checked bags"
Pros: "No delays except for weather."
Pros: "The crew was professional and friendly."
Cons: "Both my outbound and inbound flights were 1 hour late. The tiny tray tables and lack of reclining chairs make Frontier's planes more uncomfortable than others. Being charged for a basic beverage or snack also seems "chintzy" when you've already charged me for my flight + my seat + all baggage."
Pros: "Ticket agent and crew were very friendly and professional"
Cons: "Downloaded the Frontier app, but could not get my boarding pass. Had to go to ticket agent at airport. Baggage charges confusing."
Pros: "Crew was super pleasant and chipper. Passengers seemed to have a handle on how to board in a timely manner."
Cons: "Management could schedule time for maintenance software updates so as not to affect departure time. We were 20 minutes delayed."
Pros: "Great flight for the price"
Cons: "Nothing- there were delays but not due to the airline"
Cons: "Cobran por maletas de mano cobran por todo"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "2 hour delay, had to get on and off plane, but mostly it was the rude ticket agents at the airport that were the problem. They were much more focused on scolding passengers on the mic than giving updates about departure time. To be fair the agent at the gate going to Des Moines was far worse."
Cons: "The plane was delayed due to “maintenance” but no explanation was given as to why."
Pros: "Crew was very nice. Smooth flight until turbulance upon arrival Pilot did a great job thru it. Got a round of applause."
Pros: "Fairly comfortable seating"
Cons: "It would be nice to have complimentary coffee. $3.00 for 6oz of coffee is a bit much,"
Pros: "Arrived early. Flight attendants were pleasant."
Cons: "Wanting to charge $40 for bag!"
Pros: "SEAT was comfortable"
Cons: "Service"
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Everything that could go wrong, seemed to go wrong- except for no crash, and I am thankful for that."
Pros: "Friendly flight attendants"
Cons: "Delay in departing, but seemed to make up time in the air and landed on time."
Pros: "Nonstop flight."
Cons: "Delay so late arrival."
Cons: "The flight was overbooked due to switching to a smaller aircraft. When my family boarded the airplane, we went to find out that the row we were booked into seats (31) did not exist on this plane. The rows went to 30. My parents and aunt who are elderly had to wait standing at the back of the plane until the stewards found us new seats. Before we boarded the airline they announced that they were overbooked and were asking for people to voluntarily give up their seats. When we boarded the plane, there were about 8 stewards in training on the flight. If the airline had oversold seats on this flight, why were those training not held back for the next flight instead of making their customers wait?"
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "The crew was super rude to not only me but other passengers. The seats did not lean back and were made of plastic with a 1/4 inch of padding. Do you know how your back feels when you sit in a plastic chair for 5 hours? Horrendous. I legitimately have back pain since my flight. It’s cheap, but not THAT cheap. Pay the extra $100/ticket to save your back and sanity."
Pros: "The crew was friendly. They got me to and from my destination safely."
Cons: "I resented the fact that we being charged about $3.00 for a can of soda after we paid premium for the flight and there was absolutely no entertainment. Hated the fact that I paid almost $80 just to take my clothes o. My vacation. Guess I should have gone naked, would have been $80 cheaper."
Pros: "flight was on time"
Cons: "the most uncomfortable flight I've ever been on. No in-flight entertainment, no free non-alcoholic drinks, no magazines in back seat pocket, seats felt carved from concrete"
Cons: "You're charged for everything. When checking in you have to pay for your seats... what's the point of spending $350 on a ticket if you have to spend another $60 on your seat. What was the ticket for?"
Pros: "On time, no boarding of passengers, even though the computer went offline, and they had to do a head count by hand."
Cons: "None, as price was right and it got us from O to SD."
Pros: "Most uncomfortable flight - horrible seats - easy jet replica practices- will never fly frontier"
Cons: "Most uncomfortable flight - horrible seats - easy jet replica practices- will never fly frontier"
Pros: "The crew was pleasant overall and my inflight experience was fine."
Cons: "The check-in process was terrible. I had checked in and had the tickets available on my phone but just needed to drop off a checked bag -- and it took over an hour and a half to do so! I was only able to drop off the bag when "last call" for my flight was announced. I arrived at 6:15am for an 8:35am flight and made it to the gate just in time for boarding. Unacceptable."
Pros: "Only positive thing about this company is that it doesn't cost much for a flight unless you plan on taking luggage then you might as well get another company"
Cons: "All flights where extremely late to places that never have delays Seats are like a football stadium seat, very uncomfortable and non adjustable. They are fixed seats that are made of hard plastic with a small lining of pleather. Staff was ok but this flight offers nothing but stuff you have to pay for so interactions are minimum. Baggage cost is 30 dollars."
Pros: "We had no issues boarding."
Cons: "The staff were angry, I paid for a direct flight and had a layover added after booking, staff were not happy, they charge for picking a seat, having a soda, seats don't recline, the plane was dirty, flight was late taking off. Instead of getting into Philadelphia via a direct flight early in the afternoon, we had a layover, delayed flight and I got into Philadelphia at rush hour."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "There were extra fees for carry on and checked bags, which was not revealed until we printed our boarding passes. In addition, we had to pay to reserve seats. On top of that, I have never sat in such uncomfortable seats. They charged $2.99 for a can of soda on the flight. Finally, they lost our bag, after our flight took an hour longer than it was supposed to."
Cons: "5 hours late, no updates sent via text or email, $15 dinner boucher useless and given after restaurants closed. I will never fly frontier airlines again!"
Cons: "Extra price for luggage Extremely long lines Asked for money back for mistake on number of bags and was told no"
Pros: "The gate crew was very courteous when they told us that our flight was canceled"
Cons: "Our flight was canceled and we were unable to be rebooked until 6 days later which would have been the majority of the Christmas holiday to spend with my folks. We drove 30 hours one way instead."
Pros: "One of the ground staff really tried to be helpful."
Cons: "Frontiers cancelled flight cost us over 400.00 us. Supervisors were no where to be found. Excuse used was weather when reason was pilot strike so company could renig on any responsibility. Shame on you."
Pros: "We landed early both ways."
Cons: "Flight attendants talked too fast."
Pros: "The initial price I paid. Which was very reasonable for a non-stop flight."
Cons: "Paying for a checked bag. Paying for a seat so I could be assured a decent seat. My decent price soon became what I would pay on any major airline. So why would I fly Frontier?"
Pros: "Frontier's flights is very inexpensively priced. It is a budget airline but clean and comfortable. Baggage and food are added to your ticket price so if you don't need these items the price is right."
Pros: "I thought the planes were nice and clean although I guess that's the point."
Cons: "Charging for the first piece of luggage/carry on just isn't nice. I can see charging for people who fly with excessive pieces but this is my first time flying Frontier and to charge someone who brings one airline approved suitcase just isn't nice. I'm sure it's too much to ask for ANY sort of TV/Movie. I mean you fly to Orlando, if you put on a Disney movie it would be like shooting fish in a barrel and may even keep the kids a little quieter. Seeing as I have no children it would be great to have them slightly entertained if only for a little peace. I could care less about food/beverage options which of course were extra which I quickly realized was the name of your game. My reasonably priced $200 plane ticket became a $340 plane ticket once I realized there are no options but to either pay for my luggage or vacation naked. Also I was charged one price on my departing flight and a different price on my return flight for my luggage. When I asked why I was told the prices changed that very week. How convenient for your airline and nobody else."
Cons: "We paid for seat both way. Our returning flight moved our seats so we were no longer sitting together. Had to then go through the check in line ( even though we already had our boarding passes) to have the seat problem resolved. Only to be told that we never purchased seats. I had the documentation of the purchase and was still told we did not purchase seats. Not pleased."
Pros: "The ticket price and boarding process for very good. Departure and arrival time where a specified and the flight went off with no hitch."
Cons: "The cost of checked baggage seems a bit much though I know this is now the industry Norm. I cannot comment on food or entertainment as the flight was too short to offer either."
Cons: "Flight was significantly delayed. Advertised as low cost, which it was, but that is because they make you pay for everything except water. Seats do not recline either...bad for red-eye."
Cons: "Flight ahead of us was delayed so much that ours was delayed enough that we would miss our connecting flight in Denver. We opted to stay another day in Orlando (Frontier did pay for the hotel)."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly"
Cons: "Seats insanely uncomfortable"
Pros: "The seats were mildly comfortable enough and the price was exactly what we were looking for."
Cons: "The boarding process seemed unorganized and hectic. People not in the proper zone were able to board. Some of the crew did not take their profession seriously and I seemed to have annoyed them by asking for some sort of service. I did not like how they try to shove the frontier airlines credit card down your throat. The food was boring, expensive, and, oh yeah, I had to buy it. There was absolutely no entertainment which made flying the worst."
Pros: "Easy to get on and off plane since fewer people brought carry-on luggage. The staff was also extremely friendly. The plan was clean and comfortable."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "I liked it was a non stop flight, friendly crew"
Cons: "No entertainment so download some movies on your phone, seats are ok for a 2 hour flight, over that they get uncomfortable."
Cons: "I was disappointed that there weren't any headrest monitors with movies and there wasn't music available. If they aren't going to offer that then at least offer free wifi"
Cons: "i hate paying $ 45 for a carry on each way i wasn't aware of it before hand when i booked on line."
Pros: "Plane was newer, very clean. Seats were comfortable and the flight crew was amazing. Pilots were friendly and kept us in the loop on flight time, turbulence, etc. Flight crew was amazing and very friendly."
Cons: "Seats don't recline??"
Pros: "Not much really. Anything they did right was just even with any other airline. They did nothing that made stood out to me and made say wow."
Cons: "They nickel and dime you like crazy. EVERYTHING costs something extra."
Pros: "The crew was great, and boarding was easy."
Cons: "Well frontier advertises these cheap flights, but then charges for seats, bags, drinks, and snacks. These flights end up being just as expensive or more expensive than other airlines!! Super irritating. Doubt I will fly frontier again."
Pros: "price of ticket and friendliness of crew."
Cons: "paying for a carry-on and not being told during booking that this would be an added fee. my belt buckle was covered w/ food from a baby or young kid."
Pros: "I like the price of the tickets, but then you have to pay more."
Cons: "That we have to pay for each bag we take, pay extra to choose seats, no food given we would also have to pay and no TV or entertainment."
Pros: "The inexpensive price is the main attraction, even after figuring out what the total price would be. The plane interior seemed new. The crew was pleasant."
Cons: "Navigating the website was a little confusing. The choices to be made could have been presented in a more logical order and the less expensive alternatives less hidden ( ie. not choosing a seat). The app was useless and logging into it was frustrating (being case specific should be noted on login). Itemizing every item to be paid for separately seems to be a little gimmicky to advertise a crazy low price. It leads to some resentment when you are then charged in potentially three different ways to pay for your bags on each segment of your trip. The overall price of the trip is still quite good, but it just leaves a bad taste in your mouth after feeling like you were just nickle and dimed."
Pros: "NOTHING TO LIKE"
Cons: "Paid $45 each for front area (3people) for the same seat as everyone. NO FIRST CLASS. INFACT fly Frontier and they charge you for water. Pay for bags. Pay for your seat when you check in. Pay for water. Pay for pretzels. Pay for kids beverage. 3 of us cost more than 4 of us on Southwest. 24yr old crew flirting with the pilot. 20 min later-who is flying the plane & are the shacking up?"

Spirit is the worst airline ever. The flight are cheap, but their per-bag charges are astronomical (they even charge for carry-ons!), and they limit your bags to 40 lbs instead on the regular 50 lbs all other airlines allow. Their seats are thinly padded and uncomfortable, there is no in-flight entertainment and they don’t offer you anything during the flight, not even water. Once you add the cost of bags and the uncomfortable flight, it’s not worth traveling with them, unless it’s a short flight and all you need is a personal item like a backpack.

Cons: "Not having to check my bag...$55"
Cons: "I was lied to about my connecting flight waiting for my initial delayed flight. Now I’m stranded."
Cons: "I booked one of the big seats in front. It was great."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for 8 hours"
Pros: "good crew"
Cons: "not on time, delayed flight"
Pros: "the flight was good very fast"
Cons: "the flight was good, but the space inside the plane is very small, they charge you to breathe, water, luggage. even the wallet is charged as a personal item, to travel with a baby Spirit is NOT an option. The uncomfortable seats in that must improve a lot. Cheap tickets but you pay for everything."
Pros: "Nothing. We didn’t make the connecting flight."
Cons: "There could have been communication between flights. Had Spirit cleared a gate for our plane in a timely manner and contacted the connecting plane to wait 5 mins we could’ve gotten onboard. Absolute catastrophe. Will be leaving terrible reviews for customer service too."
Pros: "All went well. Seat was comfortable."
Pros: "The flight was on time, smooth. The plane was clean. The crew respectable."
Cons: "The plane is not the most comfortable. Very basic. I hate how Spirit airline lies about their prices. Probably won’t use them again because of this."
Cons: "Kiosk agents need to be more customer oriented."
Pros: "Boarding was quick. Flight left on time and even arrived in Detroit 15 minutes early."
Cons: "Have to pay for everything. This airline does not provide a free drink and snack like other airlines also have to pay for carry on bags."
Cons: "Didn’t like The stupid crying baby for an hour of the flight."
Pros: "I liked the cost of the tickets."
Cons: "It seems that they don’t really care about inconvenience to the customers."
Pros: "Direct flight, cheap airfair, flights were on time."
Cons: "Spirit charges for every bag. So the total price ends up being the same as any other airline, possibly even more expensive. Carry on bag was $45 EACH WAY, which is awful. And they don't even offer free snacks. Probably won't be flying spirit anytime soon again."
Pros: "NOTHING! HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE. LOOK ELSEWHERE."
Cons: "waiting in the airport for 9 hours for the plane to depart. originally scheduled for a 7:15am departure and the plane departed at 4pm. there was no message prior to advise customer of a delay in flight. Poor communication at the boarding gate. When we landed in Detroit we had to sit in the plane for 20 minutes for a gate to open. Pilot said this would take 5 minutes. the whole experience with Spirit Airlines was a disaster. i plan to look elsewhere in future flights."
Cons: "The flight was delayed :) Merry Christmas"
Cons: "They wouldn't let the charge be cancelled"
Pros: "I liked that there were extra seats on the flight and the people I sat next to were super friendly. We all had a great conversation the entire flight."
Cons: "Airport • Kayak as a third party website usually gives a flat rate, we pay, and that’s it. Not with Spirit Airlines. When you get to the counter you HAVE TO PAY EXTRA for your carryon ($55) and your checked bag ($50). That’s an extra $100 that could have been used to purchase a flat rate flight through Kayak. • You can only pay with a card, you can barely use cash Flight • Seating was too tight, no room to stretch out • Snacks even the minimum was expensive. $4 for a 4 oz of juice with ice and more • When descending for landing the pilot circled around for a full hour- first we were over the incorrect airport then when we arrived at the correct airport there was too much air traffic to land right away. Between the surprise fees I did not budget for and the extra GS expenses, along with everything else, I will not ride Soirit Airlines again."
Pros: "Departure and arrival were early"
Cons: "paperless boarding did not work - there are more android users than iPhone, yet, the barcode does not show up on e-boarding pass on droid phones. Also, Spirit forces people to sign up for an account to get e-boarding pass. This was not the case with my AA flight the previous day. Tray tables were on a spring so anytime the person behind my lifted it, it snapped and startled me as I was trying to sleep. Crew did not make curtsy announcement asking parents of children to silence electronic devices so there was lots of kid music, beeping, and general noise that even my earbuds couldn't cancel out."
Cons: "The plane had very little a/c so was hot the entire trip and the seats are very hard making them very uncomfortable."
Pros: "are flight was on time,the crew was great, very friendly."
Cons: "you pay too much for luggage.you have to make the seat more comfortable."
Pros: "Cheap flight, nice flight attendants"
Cons: "Somewhat uncomfortable: no pocket behind front seat, just bungee cords. They charge for water. There is no entertainment at all. No movie, no magazine, no radio, not even funny announcements."
Pros: "The flight was on time and baggage retrieval was quick."
Cons: "I didn't like having to buy my baggage and seat in addition to my ticket. That was a bit confusing to me."
Cons: "Fees for everything, poorly organized boarding, poor crew service, poor attitudes! Flight itself was flown OK"
Pros: "The diect flight"
Cons: "Additional cost. There wrre no savings by flying w/spirit. $52 to check lugguage plus $30 additional if ovet 40lbs. $82 total. Will not fly again if luggage needed"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Hours worth of delays. Didn't bother to make up for the trouble. It was a mess. With zero explanation as to why the flight was delayed in the first place. Last time flying with spirit. But hey you get what you pay for."
Pros: "The crew (very lively, interactive, attractive)"
Cons: "Seats were horribly narrow."
Cons: "Turbulence was awful.............I know that this is nothing that you can control"
Pros: "On one leg of our flight, the humor injected into the safety procedure instructions was wonderful. Thank you."
Cons: "I couldn't check in on line and the teller couldn't read my ticket number because the 1 looked like a capital I. She made me miss my flight by sending me to another counter where I had to wait in line. It cost me $100 and another day waiting for a different flight."
Pros: "Our flights left on time and arrived either on schedule or early. Our luggage got there with us both times. Boarding was simple and quick. Good Job!"
Cons: "Our departure date was screwed up. I don't know how. Anyway, to change it to the correct date (even more than a week in advance) they socked us with a $500 change fee. And dealing with their customer service was a nightmare. I will think long and hard before EVER flying Spirit or using Kayak again!"
Pros: "The plane was really clean and the attendants both on the ground and in the air were both efficient and courteous. I had read a bad report and was worried but m happy to say my flight and check in went wonderful as well as the baggage handling....good job spirit!!"
Cons: "nothing at all"
Pros: "It was the only flight without stop. That is the only thing I like."
Cons: "The price, seat, services in all aspect."
Pros: "We were in a line to check in our luggage for an hour, plus they charge you for everything. Overly priced."
Pros: "Clean, simple, comfortable"
Pros: "Great no frills rates."
Cons: "We were staying with friends without a printer. It was a hassle to be able to print our boarding passes before going to the airport and having to pay $20 to print two passes."
Pros: "We arrived in one piece in a timely fashion. That's it."
Cons: "The rows of seats are incredibly small, to the point the man in front of me leaped out of his seat and accused me of jamming my knees into his back. I was just sitting there and I think he was stretching back into my long legs. Really, there was nothing I could do because there was no room to move my legs out of his way. And the airline DIDNT EVEN OFFER WATER! And let's not forget that we weren't told ahead of time they charge for carry-on bags, so our affordable tickets went up $110 in cost. I will never fly Spirit again."
Cons: "2hrs late departing because of air traffic? I don't believe them. I saw a repair van on the tarmac. Seats are packed in VERY close and they don't recline. There's so little padding in the seat that you can feel the metal frame, so you're very uncomfortable. They sell everything they serve including water. There are no monitors so tv or movies are not even an option. Flight crew doesn't say good-bye, thank you or anything as you exit craft. I'm not sure what the attendants do other than offer to sell you water and tell you what you can and cannot do on their plane. They try to shame you into paying for your carry on and paying to book a seat, calling the seat they assign you "random" like they'll put you in the bathroom or out on the wing. When you get to the airport, you find the approved size for your included personal item is the size of your carry on. They don't check to see who paid for their carry on so only suckers paid. We will never ever fly Spirit!"
Pros: "Not much, first impression is the POOR, subpar customer service wen getting your boarding pass it sours the rest of the experience."
Cons: "1. Baggage fee 2. Subpar customer service 3. ground team seem very inept"
Pros: "I almost missed my flight, last one out of MCO that night (due to the horrible customer service of Norwegian Air) and your team did everything in their power to help me get there. I also had to leave my luggage with customs to make it, and your girl Ebony in baggage claim in ATL got it back to me in a day! You guys turned a truly frustrating situation with Norwegian into a smooth transition. Thank you so much!"
Cons: "Everything is perfect!"
Cons: "Arrived at the airport three hours early and still only just made the flight. When we arrived the lines were out of the door and we had to stand outside with no shade in 90 degree heat for half an hour until the line finally led us inside. We flew with Spirit two years ago to Mexico and experienced exactly the same issues. We thought this might have been a one off and so gave them another try this year. Never again. There are never enough agents at the desk and $50.00 per bag is ridiculous. For three of us, $300.00, OUTRAGOUS! I looked for lines at other airline desks and there were none. Don't be pulled in by the prospect of a cheaper flight. By the time you have taken into consideration all the extra charges for luggage, checking in online and selecting your seats, one of the most expensive carriers in the airline business. Seats don't recline and no padding!"
Pros: "Friendly and helpful crew"
Cons: "I paid extra for the extended seat which was great and also due to the fact that I had the row to myself. I have sat in regular seats and they are VERY VERY short and uncomfortable"
Pros: "The crew was helpful and very nice at all times. The plane was clean and relatively new. Price was great, considering that I paid $96 for two passengers total, with taxes."
Cons: "Some of the passenger's attitude was not the right one. The prices for check bags, was a little inthehigh side."
Pros: "Great Price."
Cons: "Return flight was canceled. They did not provide hotels for overnight stays, but the will give you $7 for food in the airport food court. You have to pay for every bag you take on the plan whether you check it or not."
Pros: "I was able to get a cheaper price with spirit."
Cons: "I didn't know the drinks, snacks, and luggage cost extra until after I booked. But after learning that was kind of spirits "thing" it wasn't so bad. I would definitely fly spirit again on a shorter trip where minimal luggage is needed."
Pros: "Arrived at my destination."
Cons: "Flight landed 30 minutes late and then we were delayed another hour with no explanation after being told it'd be only 10 minutes after the last person got off the plane. Unfriendly not even dating to border on polite."
Cons: "Almost everything. The service was terrible and so where the people around me."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "We waited 4-6 hours delay flight due to the tech crew. Then they said to us 3 hours later, we have to wait on another plane. Worst trip I've ever had. I will never fly with this company ever again. I will let the world know."
Cons: "Hidden fees and charges made this more expensive in the end than other airlines, but had no frills, either."
