Pros: "Crew good. Seat cramped"
Pros: "Nothing really"
Cons: "WiFi on both ways was not working"
Cons: "Everyone was very rude and would not answer questions and flight very delayed. No bad weather conditions"
Cons: "They cancelled two of my flights in one weekend. We will not use American Airlines again."
Pros: "Non-stop flight and arrived ahead of schedule"
Cons: "No individual entertainment in seat backs and the common system wasn’t working. But, since it was an overnight flight it wasn’t that disappointing"
Pros: "Smooth ride"
Pros: "I was able to sleep comfortably, even in the middle seat."
Cons: "Not been in a middle seat"
Pros: "Because American Air had to change a light bulb on the plane in Lisbon, which took a couple of hours, we barely made our connecting fligh. We ran from customers TSA to the other end of Philly airport."
Cons: "Another airline."
Pros: "Great crew, comfortable chair. Entertainment was great."
Cons: "Everything was great."
Pros: "Much better flight. Nice quick easy boarding and getting off. quick easy overall. Seats were much more comfortable"
Pros: "We arrived early and everything went off without a hitch."
Cons: "Seats were really tight. Made worse by the person in front who had him s seat back."
Pros: "Very comfortable flight!"
Pros: "On time . No significant delays cost of ticket low."
Cons: "Tiny plane with small seats never that comfortable."
Pros: "The crew was very nice."
Cons: "Couldn’t get the tv to work very well."
Pros: "The flight was early to arrive. There was also a rather frightening bit of turbulence, and the pilot explained why it had occurred, which I found very reassuring."
Cons: "The food was definitely below average. It's virtually all carbohydrates.Other airlines provide you with a printed description of the menu options, so it's easier to make a choice. "Chicken or pasta" doesn't give the passengers any idea of what they are actually choosing. This time the chicken dish was served with pearl couscous, so it was basically pasta as well. The salad I was given was brown and wilted, and while the cabin attendants were kind enough to give me two salad that were in better shape (after meal service), I just think that quality control should have prevented a inedible salad from being served in the first place. I am also extremely opposed to American Airlines Transatlantic luggage fees. Since I was moving abroad rather than taking a short trip, I was not pleased about paying 100 USD for a second bag on top of an already expensive flight."
Cons: "Delayed due to no available gate attendant. Limited ground crew."
Cons: "I was so disappointed as soon as I walked into the plane. It was very old plane and very dated. There was no entertainment center. It was a long flight with nothing to do. :( I will never fly with American Airlines to Europe again)"
Pros: "Basic flight. Super uncomfortable seats. Older plane. Cramped. Pilot was great. Flight smooth."
Cons: "Got there safe!"
Cons: "Seating is bad, one pays for the tickets then he has to pay for the seat seperraitly only the middle seat comes with the tickets."
Pros: "Nothing exceptional"
Cons: "Never taken!!!"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Pilot was going so fast never told us why we kept descending and going back up and people were throwing up and they wouldn’t give soda to settle stomachs"
Cons: "American is always delayed, every single flight."
Pros: "perfect"
Pros: "Plane was clean"
Cons: "Out of wraps, sandwich disappointing. Legroom bad."
Pros: "The boarding process was ok."
Cons: "The entertainment system failed again."
Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Bathroom smell"
Pros: "It makes such a difference when the attendant is happy and clearly enjoying her work and trying to make a difference. A fantastic boost after a long flight"
Pros: "Landed early"
Cons: "The seats were not as good as the ones on my BA flight to Heathrow and then Rome. Also, cross country flight but no in flight entertainment. Arrived early in PHL and American would not let me move up to an earlier PHL-SFO flight since it was a code share booked with BA. Should not be my fault as when booking it indicated all four of my flights were with BA. Once booked it indicated the return flights were code share with AA. American should have allowed me on the earlier flight. That would have opened a seat on the scheduled flight which had people waiting on standby."
Pros: "Arrived on time."
Cons: "Seat space is bad. Food is all for a fee."
Pros: "I liked that food and entertainment was included without additional charges, even a glass of wine."
Cons: "Not too comfortable to sleep in."
Cons: "Delay due to mechanical glitch which should have been checked before boarding"
Pros: "Smooth flight on time."
Cons: "After flying from Denver to Philly, I had anticipated an hour and a half layover. First email came speaking of a delay, then second, then about five emails later American Airlines notified me that there will be a 4 hour delay. To get from Philly to avoca on a flight is half an hour. On a bus, its two hours. If an airline knows there will be a four hour delay, how do you not provide that service? I watched plent of other flights go to AVP and even to Allentown, no one could offer one of those options to me? Cold, compressed and miserable experience."
Pros: "It was just great"
Pros: "Pretty good dinner and breakfast, complimentary wine"
Cons: "Slow flaky entertainment system didn't work at all in some seats, needed multiple 10-minute reboots in other seats. I was unable to complete a 2 hour movie on a 9 hour flight. No internet."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled"
Cons: "not enough space for legs, no food, flight attendants not especially nice, a long delay, ..."
Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Arrived early and flight wasn't packed."
Pros: "There were empty seats close to me, so that was great. The food was pretty good and it was nice that the wine was free."
Cons: "The screen on the back of the seat in front of me did not work well at all so it was difficult to watch movies. (I had to press multiple times to change the screen from one display to another.)"
Pros: "good timing"
Cons: "snacks and beverages..."
Pros: "our original flight was cancel due to snow, and we were placed at a hotel and food vouchers were given as well"
Cons: "no head set were passed out making video entertainment useless"
Cons: "Staff was not friendly at all"
Pros: "The attendants were helpful and Kind"
Cons: "Prices, again."
Pros: "Flight on time"
Pros: "I enjoyed that the ride was only 35 minutes. The crew was helpful and professional. Quick and smooth trip and came in on time. Can't really ask for too much more than that."
Cons: "The middle seat was a little cramped but I can't really complain since I lucked out with window seats the entire trip and only had to sit in the middle seat for the shortest plane ride on my trip."
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Small plane"
Cons: "Seats need to be bigger (wider)"
Cons: "Nothing all good"

Pros: "The attendants were amazing, fun, attentive and provided for a very quick four-hour trip!"
Cons: "Not one thing."

Pros: "Minimal turbulence"
Pros: "Friendly staff and efficiency"
Cons: "None that I can think of"
Pros: "Due to earlier delay, was not able to make this flight"
Cons: "Did not take flight due to earlier delay"
Cons: "The crew was very rude, I was told I had to store my purse, the person next to me wouldn't store the carry on baggage, I needed to take scheduled medicine in flight, I couldn't as my purse was stowed. I was delayed for over and hour and a half after arriving. I had to stop and eat in the airport. With chronic health issues addressed this way I will probably not use United again."
Pros: "Free snacks"
Cons: "Not a lot of foot room"
Pros: "Everything was on time and it was a good flight"
Pros: "Crew was helpful and everything went as planned"
Cons: "Smaller seats"
Pros: "All was good. Flight attendants helpful and friendly."
Pros: "Everything! The flight left on time and landed early. Service was great and the staff was super."
Cons: "Been a long time since we had to walk down onto the tarmac to board a plane. Would rather not have to do that. Otherwise a good experience."
Pros: "Well organized."
Pros: "see above"
Cons: "see above"
Pros: "a little bit more foot-room than my previous flight on a different airline."
Pros: "Quick short flight."
Pros: "Flight was on time. This shouldn't have to be a "positive" aspect of the trip but unfortunately was the only flight during my trip that was on time."
Cons: "The plane got delayed by more than 3 hours!"
Pros: "Landing safely."
Cons: "Everything else. I flew from PHL to IAH and was very unhappy with the experience. The gate agents were unfriendly. The bag check agents downstairs were unfriendly. I had two separate phone calls with United a week prior to the flight to understand and confirm the bag policy. This was AFTER booking my flight so they knew upfront I bought a basic economy ticket. After my first call, I understood a personal item would be free and I would be able to pay for my carry on bag, but only within 24 hours prior to the flight. I made a second call to be absolutely sure the previous agent gave me the correct information and pricing. So I paid the $25 for my carry on, checked in online, and waited at the gate while boarding at the very end because I was basic economy. They did not let me board with my bag. They requested another $50 to check my carry on with them or I would be rebooked. I struggled to afford the flight, let alone the carry on fee I had paid in advance. I literally did not have the money, and even if I had the cash, they only accept plastic. What blew me away was they weren't asking me to check my carry on because of the size. But because of my basic economy ticket, aka, the N fare. Despite checking with two employees by phone after buying my ticket and paying for a carry on in advance, there is a rule in place that states "if you have purchased Basic Economy, you will only be allowed one personal item, unless you are a Premier member or a primary card member using a qualifying MileagePlus credit card." Therefore, there is no alternative. You are a second class citizen; a no good deplorable, when you buy this ticket and there is nothing you can do to upgrade it. Only the "premier" passengers have the right to bring a carry on aboard even if you think you're paying for the privelage. What I was expected to somehow understand after asking two United employees prior if I could purchase the right to bring a carry on bag aboard, was to CHECK my CARRY ON downstairs or learn the hard way. Wow. What a ruthless way to learn this lesson. I waited 7 more hours to board the next available flight. What a nightmare. I thought I had did the appropriate research necessary and planned in advance to avoid these situations. Checking in online and contacting customer service prior is no longer the convenience it used to be. Even if you've done your research, bring additional funds with you. Even if you check in online and have a digital boarding pass, always check in with a real human prior to entering the TSA security line. A side note, United is trying to save money while "speeding up" the process by forcing you to use a computer to hand over your checked luggage. Speaking with a human now is a monumental struggle."
Pros: "Clean aircraft, swift flight"
Cons: "Seat was changed to last row/middle seat (not what initially booked or confirmed with online check-in). Before takeoff, attendant moved all passengers in back row to alternate seats. Which meant that I was no longer traveling with my colleague. Unfortunately, that made our intended meeting time impossible."
Cons: "Just give free wi fi already"
Cons: "I didn't realize how you can no longer be accommodated without being charged for everything."
Cons: "Hour late taking off and customer service terribleness!"
Pros: "Although there were no personal screens, I appreciate the fact that entertainment was available on the app."
Pros: "The incoming plane was delayed due to 'equipment prep'. Since it was connecting me to my longer leg, I was nervous. The crew did a great job of deplaning everyone and getting the plane ready for our flight with very minimal delay."
Cons: "It was a quick 30 minute flight and everything was fine."
Pros: "The seats and the price"
Cons: "How far back I was"
Pros: "Tv"
Cons: "The tv kept shutting on and off"
Pros: "On time flight. Great service from United crew."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by more than an hour due to maintenance issue which could have been avoided."
Pros: "Free entertainment"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seating and couldn't sleep"
Pros: "Seats are comfy"
Cons: "Food service sucks"
Cons: "Same as above, including late flight"
Pros: "I'm handicapped and the help getting from terminal to terminal. The people were very helpful."
Cons: "I have metal leg braces. I had to remove them to get in the seat. So the flight was uncomfortable. It would be nice if the plane could have handicapped seating.I know I wouldn't have minded paying a little more for comfortable seating."
Pros: "Pilots and some flight attendants were kind and friendly."
Cons: "On the return home, I was seated in the last row right next to the lavatory. I was bumped into at least 25 times by other passengers and flight attendants. I would suggest removing the aisle seat on both sides."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "Bad"
Cons: "Bad"
Cons: "My connection to YYZ was cancelled and I was not even rebooked to the next flight. I needed to buy a ticket on Air Canada in order to get there. Every time I fly United I find myself asking "why in the hell am I flying United?""
Cons: "Had to wait to takeoff for approx 15 minutes due to maintenance preparing paperwork"
Cons: "I didn't like that on the way to Philly I could watch movies on my device, but on the way back I would have had to pay to use the seat-back system."
Pros: "easy transfer"
Cons: "had to transfer"
Cons: "Dulles International Airport on a beautiful June 3, 2016. Flight was from Dulles to Hartford and due to depart at 12:30 pm. 12:30 pm - Notified flight delayed an hour or so because they didn't have a flight attendant for the flight. 2:00 pm - Notified flight delayed because Flight Attendant was found but on way. 4:00 pm - Notified the Flight attendant would not be able to make it, but they were looking for another one. 6:00 pm - Notified a Flight Attendant was found and was on a plane that was inbound and would be landing any minute. Notified plane with Flight Attendant arrived at gate and they would be there any minute and we could begin boarding. 6:45 pm - Flight was CANCELLED!!!!! I could go on about how I was rebooked on an 11:00 pm flight on American Airlines out of Reagan, my checked bag was not returned to me and I was told it was on another plane United plane that would beat me to Hartford, they shuttled me to Reagan. I got to Hartford and my bag was not there......SURPRISE!! This was ridiculous and thank god I was traveling alone and had time. I felt bad for the families with small children who had to suffer through this stupidity."
Pros: "Crew very friendly!"
Cons: "No entertainment (video screens ) on board flight."
Pros: "The boarding was very smooth."
Cons: "The passengers behind me had a baby on board that cried throughout the whole flight."
Pros: "Friendly service, nice and comfortable."
Cons: "The seat cushions were in terrible condition!!!"
Cons: "I paid for my luggage in advance and when I arrived at Philly airport it was not acknowledged"
Cons: "Snacks"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly"
Cons: "Pretty much everything else, should have WiFi by now even if it’s paid"
Pros: "Seats where comfortable and I had space"
Cons: "Maybe TV's can be added, the crew members weren't so hospitable"
Cons: "The flight attendants were rude"
Pros: "Flight on time, crew was friendly and helpful. Boarding was seamless and overall great experience for the price"
Cons: "Not much leg room but expected with budget airlines"
Pros: "Was direct and easy. No issues with boarding or flight"
Cons: "Cramped"
Pros: "The crew more than adequate. Very nice."
Cons: "The two hour delay caused by no one noticing that the tires needed to be changed which, according to your own pilot was listed as part of the needed ground Maintenance. Boarding the plane before they were changed. De-boarding the plane to change the tires. The one and a half hour wait at the gate for your company to approve the plane for flight. This was not a good experience and I do not want to fly frontier again as a result."
Pros: "Friendliness, smiles and on time"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I will never fly Frontier airlines again. No matter how inexpensive the tickets are, it is not worth the aggravation. Agents were rude. Flight horribly delayed. Plan ride was uncomfortable. I lost my car rental because they close at 5:30pm. When there own employees say there flights are always delayed that alone said it all."
Pros: "On time. Low rate. According to my business timing."
Cons: "Charge for Carryon luggage. Charge for snack"
Pros: "Nice new clean plane"
Pros: "The plane was clean and we left on time with no delays or issues. The flight crew were very nice and there was also enough overhead space for everyone’s bags."
Cons: "The lines are excessively long to check a bag, there was only 1 of 4 check in kiosks working, which created it’s own line. Also the carry on bag fee at the airport was incredibly steep."
Pros: "Frontier changed our flights and didn't notify us and left us high and dry in Philly yesterday!! Thank God for my sister and travel insurance otherwise I would have lost my mind."
Cons: "They took our money, a lot of money and then stranded us in Philly, then gave us the gift of a 13 hour layover in Denver. Frontier is the WORST AIRLINE on the ENTIRE PLANET!!"
Pros: "I arrived safely. The crew was very friendly and helped to. All my husband who was scared as this was his first time flying."
Cons: "The agent who checked me in was extremely unprofessional. I felt like she was envious that I was going on a vacation and she had to work. She tried to make my experience a living hell. I personally think she should be fired. She does not enjoy what she is doing. She joyfully told me that it costs $40 to carry my luggage and after I informed her that I saw it online for less she informed me that I should have bought it online. She then stuck me all the way in the last row of the plane. I am 5'9". My husband is 6'2" and over 300 pounds. Those seats have the least leg room. It was pure torture. The flight crew in the back help my poor husband by using humor to help him."
Pros: "Great flight. Professional staff."
Pros: "It was a very quick process to board the plane because not many people had carryon luggage. The crew was friendly and apologetic when our flight was delayed. There was also an issue with the plane and the crew had someone come look at it immediately"
Cons: "We unfortunately had two delays and I got home quite late. I understand having to pay for beverages, but perhaps water could be free?"
Pros: "Although the flight was delayed half an hour....I was happy with the service and crew."
Cons: "A free juice woulve been nice....but oh well...no one's gonna die of thirst in 2 hours."
Pros: "Boarding was smooth and efficient. Crew was very nice and accommodating."
Cons: "Seats were very uncomfortable and didn't recline which made it tough to sleep. Also complimentary soft drinks and snacks should have been offered. Shouldn't have to pay for them."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats - don't recline! Rude crew, create an impression if they're doing you a favor by being there. Flight significantly delayed. No clear announcements. As a frequent flier, didn't expect a Spirit like experience from Frontier!"
Pros: "To be honest nothing. You would have to pay me to fly them. Never again!"
Cons: "Seats have no cushion and are about an inch wide. Arm rest the size of a French fry. Seats don't recline. Obviously no entertainment. You pay for everything, even checked or non checked bags. A drink ? That will be $3.... The crew look like they are paid minimum wage in a fast food franchise."
Pros: "I didn't like anything. I particularly didn't like them asking for a tip on their outrageously priced sales on board. The $40 carry on charge sucks."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "After paying for the flight. We had to pay to get seats guaranteed next to each other. And the charges for everything including a ridiculous amount for a can or soda or water and a snack."
Cons: "The seats couldn't recline plus they were very uncomfortable to be in."
Pros: "Boarding and getting off the plane was very smooth. Also the pilot did a great job with take off and landing was so smooth I was impressed."
Cons: "I didn't like that they didn't offer any snacks or drinks other than water complimentary. I mean a soft drink shouldn't run someone four dollars after paying for a ticket. Other than that it was a nice flight."
Pros: "This was my first time flying Frontier, and I was pleasantly surprised with how smoothly everything went! Check in was simple, the flight was on time, the cabin was spacious and we arrived almost an hour ahead of schedule! I will definitely be flying with Frontier again!"
Cons: "I was charged $10 extra to check a bag because I didn't pay in advance. This was my first time flying with Frontier, so I was unaware of this."
Cons: "I am so upset that I was charged after she put our bag and it fit in spot for baggage. This is just wrong"
Pros: "The seats were comfortable and the thin profile gave a feeling of roominess."
Cons: "Baggage fees and carry of fees. You can save by paying online but I didn't learn that until the second time around."
Pros: "The staff was excellent! The most friendliest I've ever seen. A very smooth flight."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Had to sit on the tarmac about 30 minutes on arrival in Indianapolis because another aircraft was at our gate. Why couldn't we have gone to a different gate? Arrival was at about 9pm and the airport wan't that busy. This was uncomfortable. Would have been a good time to hand out free snacks and beverages or drink coupons for a future flight."
Pros: "I flew from Seattle to Denver. It was okay."
Cons: "When I flew from Denver to Philadelphia, the assent was excruciatingly painful for my ears. I thought my eardrums were bursting."
Cons: "Flight From San Antonio to Philadephia, Late for 1 hours Flight from Philadelphia to San Antonio boarding on time, however we have to wait for 1 hour to take off"
Pros: "The plane was clean, the flight was smooth and the crew was excellent!!!"
Cons: "We had to pay for everything, baggage, a nonalcoholic drink and to sit next to each other."
Pros: "In general the flight was good however the landing was a bit rough"
Cons: "The flight arrival was ahead of schedule and hostesses were great also"
Cons: "The worst flight I've ever taken"
Pros: "I'd like to not be charged for a carry-on."
Cons: "I did not like the overselling, extra fees (i.e. carry-on charge)."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Got a cheap flight but little did I know that that would be offset by being nickeled and dimed for seats, bags, and drinks. On top of that th plane was five hours late from its start point and the only information the gate agents would give (with an attitude) was the plane was coming. I called customer service to see if they were offering any restitution for this, and I was told that's not up to him. I will never never never fly frontier ever again."
Pros: "That frontier was able to get a flight as soon as possible."
Cons: "The fact that our flight was almost delayed 2 hours."
Pros: "The crew were friendly, considerate, and good at their jobs."
Cons: "The 'best' part: Frontier tried to charge me $104 to correct a mistake in my name during the online check-in process! I called and the customer service person agreed to make the correction without charge but also verified that the company did initially post the charge. In general, Frontier tries to charge for every conceivable aspect of a flight, including ANY seat you select (so you must decline to select any to avoid this) and the little snack bags on flights. Also, the first checked bag costs $35. Use with caution."
Pros: "The cost was low, so it made the return part of my trip easier to pay for."
Cons: "I had not been prepared for how "no frills' your airline is, so I didn't know to expect rigid chairs with no adjustment, and that all items offered in flight were to be paid for. It wasn't a long flight, so I didn't miss not have a snack or drink, but I didn't know any of that in advance. My fault for not checking into it a little more, but it was a whirlwind trip to move my daughter and the travel was Spartan but necessary."
Pros: "The flight was right on time leaving and arrived early. The planes are new ."
Cons: "the boarding pass was wrong. The check in clerk forgot to tag my bag with the any tag.so it stayed in Phila. They did deliver it on Wednesday to my house. Thank you."
Pros: "The crew (Flight attendants) on June 20 PHL-DEN Fligth177 were totally unprofessional. I used Frontier Airlines for the first time and totally a 'disaster' I did upgrade seats for $45, No WIFI, restrooms inside of the plane were so smelly and disgusting.....But the worse part is the "CREW" they should go back to the training room class and take the course again regarding CUSTOMER SERVICE!"
Cons: "NOTHING was good...NOTHING!"
Pros: "The staff"
Cons: "The plane, the five-hour delay."
Pros: "Once we actually got to board, boarding went quickly. That's about the only good thing. They also gave us dinner and flight vouchers towards future travel because of the delay."
Cons: "You have to pay for everything - paying for a round-trip checked bag was actually cheaper than paying for a round-trip carry-on. That, and we were delayed for 5 hours. Actually, it was initially 3.5, but then we actually got the aircraft at the gate before they discovered the crew was delayed on another flight. Then, you even have to pay for water and other refreshments on the plane. Give me a break."
Cons: "I arrived at the airport extra early due to the long TSA lines. However frontier would not check my bags until 1:30. I waited an hour to check before being able to going through security."
Cons: "If you board in standard coach it is a mess getting onto the plane. There is no organization to getting your boarding pass scanned. The price is very reasonable for a short flight."
Cons: "You have to pay extra for your seat - if you want to sit with your party and not be scattered all over the plane. You have to pay for your carry on and you have to of course pay for your checked bag. So everything you saved on the cost of the flight is eaten up with the extras."
Pros: "At least Frontiet airlines boarded by zones as announced. Recent flights taken by me on another airlines leftmewith the impression that the passengers controlled the boarding process."
Cons: "Boarding"
Pros: "Boarding process was easy Crew were attentive On time I didn't pay for a seat, but got an aisle anyway"
Cons: "Checked bag and seat fees Seats do not recline Charge for water! Tray tables are half the size of typical trays, but I guess since they don't feed people, it's not much of a problem"
Cons: "Getting nickeled and dimed for everything from carry-ons to seats to drinks. Uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Delayed flight, paying for carry on bags, no complimentary beverage for a 4 hour flight"
Pros: "No"
Cons: "Yes"
Pros: "Fast boarding!"
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable, entertainment is non existent."
Pros: "It's cheap!"
Cons: "The amount of space on the plane is incredibly restricted. The seats are actually thinner to accommodate more passengers. We flew on Spirit because it was the only direct flight available to us. Also, it is difficult to gauge the actual price since they charge for EVERYTHING."
Pros: "The PILOT was one of the best...wish I knew his name. Take off and landing was so smooth"
Cons: "Flight attendant was nasty...should have gotten her name"
Pros: "Boarding went smooth"
Cons: "If you are over 5’10” don’t ever fly Spirit as the seats are exceptionally small. Surrounded by screeching babies the entire way kicking my seat the entire flight. Absolutely miserable"
Pros: "stewardess was pleasant"
Cons: "Plane was 4 hour delayed luggage cost very expensive it makes them no cheaper and probably more expensive than other airlines"
Pros: "Price was great! Plane arrived early. Check in went smoothly and great customer service. Crew was friendly and professional."
Cons: "The seats are small and uncomfortable but I was prepared for that and it was ok for a 3 hr flight. I would not fly Spirit for a longer flight b/c of the seats."
Pros: "Quick boarding, smooth ride"
Cons: "No entertainment or food or drink service on a 6 hour flight"
Pros: "Flight was not bad at all ..."
Cons: "The seats were hard not really comfortable"
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable. Very little leg room."
Pros: "On time boarding and departure. Nice job by pilot."
Cons: "Loud. Talkative flight attendant and people she was speaking with."
Pros: "It got me to my destination."
Cons: "The seats are ridiculously close. You have to pay extra for everything. I'll only fly them again for a short flight where I only need a personal item. Otherwise, it isn't worth it."
Cons: "Add ons was unexpected. Seats were cramped. Crew not very nice. Wife was freezing the whole flight back because of a broken ac vent. Passenger behind me had his knee on my back the whole flight. Told flight attendant about issues but did nothing. Thought that spirit being a new airline would have better service."
Pros: "I DIDN'T LIKE ANYTHING"
Cons: "The customer service is rude, unhelpful and provided no solutions. I spoke with three agents including a supervisory and no one wanted to help. Worst airline. I would rather pay more than attempt to fly with Spirit Airline."
Pros: "The seats are not big enough especially if you are a big person like myself I'm dreading my flight home"
Cons: "No wifi , customer service"
Pros: "I ended up buying a different flight with a different airline because I would have been stuck in Vegas for 12 hrs AGAIN with this airline. It's trash"
Pros: "Fast boarding and upgrade to the front seats"
Cons: "One of stewardess had poor customer service skills as she yelled at me to get off the phone instead of kindly saying that phones should be put away now. We were still at the gate ."
Cons: "Spirit Airline employees did not inform us that there was an option for a gate pass to take my 82 year old mother through security. When i mentioned this to a ticket agent, she told me that is only offered for young children travellong alone. What the HECK is the difference for the elderly? Also, there was another elderly passenger on same flight whose daughter had said pass. They need to get their perspective straight where elderly travellers are concerned."
Pros: "Friendly (and funny) staff and flight attendants. On time. Comfortable."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight was severely delayed both ways. At least Spirit is consistent. Really cramped seating. Zero creature comforts and the flight wasn't priced to reflect Spirit's "bare bones" take on flying."
Cons: "TSA precheck wasn't added to my boarding pass even tho I input my global entry number"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Seats are small, person next to you is practically on top of you, no leg room"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight was delayed cancelled then delayed."
Cons: "Surprised that you cannot change your mind and get a refund for the baggage fees - the seats seem closer together"
Pros: "You sent EIGHT DELAYED DEPARTURES all with different times as to when the flight was leaving , gave everyone one package of cookies and then sent a voucher for $50.00 with a TWO MONTH Expiration date!!!!! GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE!!! The voucher doesn't cover the ADDITIONAL COST of the seat or even the luggage!"
Cons: "That my flight was cancelled and had to find another airline to fly with that costed me way more money."
Pros: "Excellent people helped me out to get my flight"
Pros: "Initial fare was half of other airlines, and it was a direct flight! Yay"
Cons: "I tried multiple times to create an account with Spirit in order to pay for my 2 suitcases, but was never sent an email to do so. I ended up paying for my bags during check in, at the cost of $55/each! Even when I explained to counter person, she said, Now, next time you'll know." No apology, or attempt to solve the dilemma."
Pros: "Price, boarding process, cleanliness of plane"
Cons: "On both trips the plane was late getting to the gate and taking off."
Cons: "Staff was scolding people for minor errors on their part, which was unnecessary. Overall the flight was unpleasant because the staff kept waking people up around me, which in turn woke me up several times."
Cons: "First of all Kayak and everyone else oversold the flight. So even though I bought the ticket last week and showed up over an hour early when I got on the flight there were no seats, the seat they said they gave to me 19A was filled with another passenger with a ticket saying 19A so they also did not know what they were doing. The crew told me to sit anywhere, but three of us ended up having to get off the plane. I ended up being stuck in Los Angeles and missing a million $ meeting. No appology, no credit for future flights was made or even attempted by the crew. I'm considering a lawsuit to be honest unless some very quick and good service is provided. The crew was rude and stressed and all about leaving on time. HORRIBLE."
Pros: "Liked the affordable ticket price"
Cons: "The affordable ticket price was overblown by the huge baggage fees. Would have been cheaper and better to go with a "real" airline!"
Pros: "Flight arrived early."
Cons: "Spirit is hands down the worst airline I have ever flown on. We thought we had found a steal of a flight for $180 from Philadelphia to Ft. Lauderdale until we found out that they literally charge you extra for every single other thing. Just to pick our 2 seats round trip cost us another $56. Checking bags both ways was another $168. Then while checking in, we were charged $30 for an "overweight" bag. Every single other airline has a 50 pound limit, but once again spirit found a way to be cheap and sub-par with a 40 pound limit. Luckily we managed to avoid their $100 carry on fee for if your bag doesn't meat they're incredibly small limit. Oh and their app, which every single other airline allows you to download for free, is $5. Once aboard the plane, the seats are made of hard plastic with barely any cushioning and the seat back tray won't even hold anything larger than a beverage. There is also no on-flight entertainment offered. This has been a learning experience to say the least. Suffice to say, I will never fly with Spirit Airlines again. They are incredibly cheap and try to nickel and dime you for every little thing. 2 thumbs WAY down."
Pros: "This flight was better. The cabin stuff was much more professional than my first flight. One staff member in particular (Lori) was very professional."
Cons: "Boarding took a really long time. We were scheduled to board at 10:40. Then they announce it would be at 10:50. That's fine, but there were no further updates and we didn't end up boarding until after 11. They called zone 1 to board, but they hadn't even deplaned from the previous flight so everyone was standing around waiting for far longer than they had to. Also, for some reason our flight was labelled as "on time" even though we ended up being about half an hour late."
Pros: "That I arrived safely"
Cons: "The baggage fares. I need the domestic flight to connect to my international flight. So I had to pay $124 on baggage which is totally free for my international flight. Won't be flying Spirit next time I need a connecting flight. We waited 2 hours inside the plane at the gate before departing. We just informed we were delayed because of paper work and only after 1 hour we got an update. After an hour and a half we were told we could get off the plane if we wanted to get something to eat or drink... I'm tall so my legs were crammed. I guess the quote is true: you get what you pay for. Pay cheap, get cheap comfort, cheap service and expensive luggage fare!"
Pros: "Crew was good. Flight attendants very friendly. Tried to make everyone comfortable."
Cons: "Delayed 2 hours at gate due to Spirit IT system glitch. Paperwork had to be done by hand and single supervisor working on another flight that she needed to get on ground before she could work on us. Everything extra. Need to pay step fees to get decent seat, reasonable amount of luggage, and even water. By the time you add all this up, not a bargain. Also they don't participate in TSA pre check so had to wait on lines even with this."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight was delayed but Spirit reps wouldn't address my concern about missing my connecting flight and were positive the flight was on time."
Cons: "Unable to use TSA precheck. Since I was unable to pay for bags while on the Jayak site, I had to pay $10 more later on the Spirit Air site"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Horrible custmer service. There were not enough agents to assist all of the customers. The agents that were there were careless and slow. The flight was delayed 4 times. They nickel and dime you for everything making their cheap flight more expensive than traditional carriers."
Cons: "Charged me 100 dollars to check on my personal item because "it has wheels""
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "1. Unable to make our seat assignment. 2. To make my own seat selection I had to pay another $10.00 3. No food or the flight attendant just wheeled the cart right past my middle seat. 4. Cost for the one bag we carried/checked was outrageous. 5. Seats have very little room when trying to get seated and when seated. Poor comfort. 6. No more Sprit flights after we return from this one."
Pros: "Slightly more leg room than most airlines"
Cons: "3-hour delay with no explanation as to why they were late."
Cons: "My return flight to LAX was okay. However, the flight to PHL was bad due to uncomfortable seats which didn't recline at all. Also, the charges for a carry-on is ridiculous as is the charge to pick a seat."
Pros: "Liked the option to purchase what snacks & beverage I wanted."
Cons: "Gate agent needs to remember what she says on the announcements; she called groups 1 & 2 then told all the people in group 2 (in a very firm tone) to stand aside she was only boarding group 1 ?????"
Pros: "Nothing not even the price of my flight"
Cons: "Customer service, airplane, etc"
Pros: "Flight was on time and we arrived earlier plus it was a very smooth landing"
Pros: "Staff were very nice when we had to land in Kansas City unexpectedly because toilets overflowed"
Cons: "No sandwiches to buy on long flight. Both toilets overflowed and could not be repaired, requiring an unexpected landing in Kansas City and getting an other plane. They did get us free pizza and soda during the wait."
Pros: "flight was on time"
Cons: "seats are too cramped. Passenger behind me kept kicking my seat the entire time (and she was a grown woman). People leaving the fight need to be told to be orderly. I had to calm down a verbal confrontation between two men because one guy try to rush from off from the back of the plane and bumped into another man. Crew did nothing, if I wouldn't have stopped the confrontation it may have gotten ugly."
Pros: "The crew were personable and nice"
Cons: "The seats and space were much smaller than other aircraft I've been on. I'm 6'6" and had a difficult time fitting into the seats"
