Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews

Cons: "The landing was somewhat frightening."
Pros: "Incredible service, great entertainment options, comfy seats"
Pros: "The Flight crew was great and the pilot got us there with the least amount of delay as possible. Thanks everyone!"
Cons: "Undersized overhead bins so ALL carry-on rollerbags had to be checked."
Pros: "Service. Sweet attendant."
Cons: "Two out of three flights were delayed, customers service of the flight operated by Delta airlines is a nightmare and on top of it 2hours and 40min delayed. No drinks, no snacks, nothing."
Pros: "The agents in the air were a lot more understanding and at least apologized."
Cons: "I understand if we need to check bags because its full but when iy is not full but you demand I check it anyway all you are doing is adding travel time to my trip. Also we needed things in our bags that we otherwise would have had. Not the best customer service at the gate."
Pros: "But the crew were awesome!"
Cons: "Flight delayed then gate was changed, while I was using lavatory and did not hear changes! Then boarding was confusing as the intercom wasn't working. Overall poor."
Pros: "New comfort seats. Nice staff. Pilot kept us continuously updated."

Pros: "They offered water and snacks It was quick"
Cons: "Was ok"
Pros: "We arrived in Las Vegas"
Cons: "Even in first class, it appeared to me that the legroom has been decreased."
Cons: "The redesign of seats means that very few of Delta's planes can actually accommodate a sherpa-style pet carrier, even though they are an industry standard for in-cabin travel. Further complicating the problem is that the clearance under the seat varies depending where in the cabin you're seated. It's become an extremely stressful proposition for which I have the privilege of paying an extra +$100 each way whilst having to give up one of my carry ons. As far as I can see, the charge is just straight up greed, since no one would be able to use the space beneath the seat in front of me, anyway, and carrying on my cat cause zero extra work for the crew. I'm going to have rethink my loyalty to Delta. At least with Southwest, they'll let me check two bags for no additional cost."

His manager witnessing the situation did not rectify and did not want to give me the full name of that agent.

Pros: "Complementary snaks"
Cons: "Very little leg space."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Poor organisation when boarding, most uncomfortable seats. Felt like a torture device."
Pros: "The pilot was fine and kept us informed. However, the rest of the crew was awful. Not friendly, did not smile. What poor example of American Airline employees. No food was available in the main cabin. This was a 6:30 p.m. flight and there should have been menu items available, not just pretzels"
Cons: "Crew and options for food. If I wanted pretzels, I would fly with Southwest. They have better service anyway."
Pros: "Friendly crew and relatively new entertainment system"

Cons: "Well organized loading, consistent beverage service"

Cons: "Got there safe!"
Pros: "At Least the Staff was keeping us updated."
Cons: "No good-faith gesture was offered for the long delay. My associate and I completely missed an important dinner meeting with the rest of our team! Our team takes this trip each year and we have always drove. It' short and I then have transportation when I arrive. This year we decided to fly because it's even easier. This particular flight from Phoenix to Vegas took us longer then if we were to drive and I then spent more in RideShare. I won't be doing it again next year."
Pros: "Not much here. The seats were ok, but the rest of the flight the airline was just poor."
Cons: "The airline is so outdated and behind the times of their competitors, their in that they don't have in flight entertainment unless you download their app and give them your email address. On top of that when I originally booked my flights, I had made sure to have 1.5 hr for a layover between my connecting flights. Well, they decided to move up my connector such that I had 25 minutes to run across 2 terminals. They only give you pretzels on the plane, and a single soda drink. They offer you "food bundles" but why do I want to pay $8 for a sandwich that costs $1 to make."
Pros: "Totally fine"
Cons: "It was fine"
Cons: "There was delay, as one of the steward was not there. There were 2 connecting flights for me, and was totally stressed about my connections."

Cons: "Bad organization during boarding"
Pros: "On time departure"
Cons: "Why do not they serve FREE water????"
Cons: "Watched a very weird interaction between Muslim (with a hajib) women with a kiddo and desk crew. She wanted to sit next to her child on the flight and needed to switch seats to be able to. Woman was very gracious and understanding that she was asking for an accommodation. Ends up her flight to Philly had been moved to a different gate after they had found a volunteer to switch seats. Volunteer was totally unfazed but Desk crew made it seem as tho the Muslim mom was at fault for the time and trouble they had had to go through to accommodate her. She apologized profusely and was very appreciative for the trouble evernote had gone to for her. . As she walked away the crew looked at each other and shook their heads. Pretty crummy way to treat customers!"

Pros: "Great crew!"
Pros: "santa ana airport"
Cons: "charged me ＄50 when i checked in my suitcase."
Pros: "Good preferred seat."
Cons: "Seat 17F is very short on leg room for a 6 foot man. Flight attendants didn't care and rough landing; pilot needs more practice."
Pros: "Smooth flight home from Cancun."
Cons: "Late arrival."
Pros: "Found a rate that was virtually the same on what I would have spent in gas to drive there. I will never drive to events in Vegas again, kayak and done from now on."
Cons: "The layout of the Vegas airport is not one of my favorites"
Cons: "Being led to pay to select seats on flight that was only 50% full"
Pros: "Seats were new."
Cons: "A lot less leg room than Southwest. Very cramped. Boarding crew in PHX was very uptight and stressed. Not sure why as everything seemed in order."
Pros: "I liked the fact that it was a smooth flight, my row was totally empty, which enabled me to pass out like a little baby. I forgot that I was on an airplane and not an air mattress. Kudos to the pilot!"
Cons: "Eddie Murphy wasn't on my flight"
Pros: "None at all. Very poor customer service."
Cons: "Very poor customer service. Flight attendant name Daryl H. Colored male , declined to help me put my carry on luggage onto the over head bin. Instead he scolded me not to bring carry on luggage if I can't put it in. The bin wax too high for me . I'm 4'10 inc tall and unable to reach the over head bin. And Daryl H, was sitting on my paid chair. A nice passenger offer his help and put the carry on to the bin. I will not book this airline again."

Cons: "3 gate changes 2+ hours delayed leaving PHX"
Pros: "More available leg room on aisle seat."
Cons: "The plane was very old, the crew was unprofessional and further only provided drink service once in 4 hours. It was mass chaos boarding because the flight that landed was late as well."
Cons: "United has a 2 hour delay for mechanical issue. We almost missed our connection to Zurich. Our bags did not make it and we are still waiting for our luggage"

Cons: "No reply from the airlines regarding my damaged baggage."
Pros: "Crew was mostly friendly"
Cons: "Leg room has vanished"
Pros: "Entertainment is too hard with Direct TV"
Pros: "I know it's not the crews fault for the delay, but everything was just truly horrendous. I was a little hesitant to fly United after their scandal, but now I know that I should not have. After a 2+ hour delay, I had to pay $60 at the gate to check a CARRY-ON that I had already asked about at the baggage drop at the beginning of that dreadful day. They assured me that it would be no problem, and foolish me, I actually believed them, so instead of paying $25 to check it ahead of time, I got screwed for $60. For a close to 6 hour flight, a meal should be provided. Entertainment was free because of the fiasco, but normally it's $7.99 which is ridiculous. Lastly, the leg room was really nonexistent. Truly the worst experience I've ever had flying, and I've flown plenty of airlines, both domestic and international. I definitely think my return trip back to Jersey will be my last time flying United."
Cons: "Refer to the aforementioned post outlining everything I did not like about this absolute trip from hell. Very disappointing to experience that and it really started the trip out on a sour note. Hopefully it gets better before I have to get back on another United plane back home."
Cons: "Very poor entertainment"
Pros: "Flying through the night freed me up the next morning. I'll fly red eye anytime."
Cons: "On board service!!!!!"
Pros: "The crew was good."
Cons: "I paid for the internet that never worked. I couldn't watch a movie or TV either. It was t just me, a lot of people around me had the same issue."
Cons: "While going inside the flight they told me there is no room for Carryon and gave me ticket to book the luggage. When I went inside the Flight there is lot of room to carryon's, why they have to lie this BS."
Pros: "Comfort of plane"
Cons: "Delay boarding, wait for a seat ticket, and gate to next terminal"
Pros: "It was nice. We were able to watch TV which made it go by quickly. Everyone was very pleasant."
Cons: "Delayed flight, but not to long"
Pros: "The flight attendant was really Nice"
Cons: "The agent at the gate were not helpful, we somehow got seats at opposite ends of the plane. Rowm17 and row 40."
Pros: "The flight overall was great, easy to board and de-board, and a smooth process from start to finish."
Cons: "Connecting to the in-flight wi-fi to watch movies and tv shows was nearly impossible."
Cons: "Seats are not comfortable and no leg room"
Pros: "Like other airlines, United is charging more fees for seats to food. And the food they sell is bad. The breakfast was microwaved to horification. Why are airlines permited to give such low levels of service? Why are they allowed to charge extra fees for ordinary seats? And no complimentary entertainment. All that NOTHING" service and for very high fees.I got suckered into paying a lot extra for premium Economy. The Premium was the extra money they stole. The Economy was the new definition of bare bones."
Cons: "There was nothing to like about the flight."
Cons: "I have alloted enough time for my next flight. Your airline crew in PhX did not extend any help in my problem even i asked them very polity in two instances. For me not to miss my flight i left my baggaes in the conveyor and I have to disturbed my friends in sfo to get my bags. I want to be conunmpensated with your poor service. Im expecting your respond"
Pros: "Curtesy of staff"
Cons: "No seat reclining at all. Feeling very stiff by the end of the fight."
Pros: "Nice crew."
Cons: "Constant ads on the tv"
Pros: "Direct flight."
Cons: "Luggage got stuck in plane, 1 1/2 hour wait at carrousel! Newark sucks to get out, took two atemps with 2 GPS and 2 people trying to decifer NJ's crappy road signs!"
Cons: "Ride bumpy. Nothing crew did all mother natures fault Food and sandwich choices awful very little legroom No entertainment"
Pros: "The seat was comfortable, the plane was new, and staff was friendly."
Cons: "Like others have said, the in-flight entertainment isn't free (even a few channels) so it is pretty useless."
Pros: "The fact that I made it to Vegas!!!"
Cons: "Flight uncomfortable the staff wasn't all that pleasant nor attentive..."
Cons: "Seating on this aircraft is poor at best!"
Pros: "The plane didn't crash. Quite possibly the only nice thing I can say about this flight."
Cons: "No built in personal entertainment for a 12 hour flight. If you had already downloaded the United app, you could connect a personal device to their wifi for free and watch from there (if you didn't download the app prior to takeoff, you were screwed). Also, no USB charging outlets were available. I live in Korea and don't have an American style outlet to connect to a USB, so my devices died. The provided tiny aisle TV which played programmed shows and movies kept freezing, skipping, and turning off. Entertainment is usually the saving grace for budget int'l flights, whose food, service, and comfort can be expected to suck. Next time I'll shell out for Korean Air or Asiana."
Pros: "Love the pre-boarding for families, love the customer service that you rarely get when flying, love the new snacks."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable and plane was clean"
Cons: "Unorganized seating system. Snappy staff."

Pros: "Overall planes appeared in good condition."
Cons: "center seat, not comfortable. Rough flight but crew did a good job communicating that was coming."
Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "I sat in the very rear where the seat does not recline. I have a metal rod in my leg and it was incredibly uncomfortable also there was a party of about 30 elder Chinese seated next to me and in front and they were incredibly rude and loud"
Pros: "It was smooth all the way around. We arrived in San Francisco 25 min early"
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "Service very frustrating fly always accommodating"
Cons: "Boarding took forever and then had to wait 45 mins on runway some difficulty"
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "One of the flight attendants got a nose bleed at the gate and the lack of universal precautions in cleaning and caring for the blood spilled was appalling. That is how diseases are spread, was unprofessional and put people at risk."
Cons: "Late no place for my carryon"
Pros: "Crew was fine, plane was new and in good shape, seat was typical and fine."
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "No wifi was available as described on seats"
Pros: "My flight back I was on the plane almost 5 hours because of a maintenance issue. My flight was cancelled abs then put in abother at 6a. Had to lose a day at work. Horrible"
Pros: "No issues. Quick and painless."
Pros: "Nothing. I hate sitting in the back of the plane and I hate the middle seat."
Cons: "The middle seat and lack of food and no screen in the back of the seat."
Cons: "2 hr behind schecduel"
Pros: "I liked all the free games I was able to play. The time seemed to pass by"
Cons: "I didn't like that this wasn't supposed to be my original flight."
Pros: "Plane took off on time. Crew doing their best."
Cons: "The landing great or something is so noisy in the pants before take off - a high pitch buzzing that was barely tolerable."
Pros: "The price is great, and the staff are great too."
Cons: "Delays (it is what it is) but people tell me they’re notorious for delays. Bartender at airport told me they’re shocked if no delays from them occur. Lol... refreshments are not complimentary but I expected that. Would I fly frontier again? I probably would. Great price, staff, and wasn’t bad spacing in the seats. If you’re a tall person, won’t be comfortable."
Pros: "The helpful counter agent."
Cons: "All ok."
Pros: "Flight to attendants were very good."
Cons: "By the time I had added my bags, selected my seats I may as well have gone on another airline that didn’t nickel and dime you go food and drink. Will not do it again or my wife, advertise as a low cost airline but it most certainly is not."
Cons: "Loudness And over priced EVERYTHING"
Pros: "Boarding was quick and easy"
Cons: "Delayed grting back.. sitting waiting for a gate to open up"
Cons: "Crew not that friendly. When boarding first flight attendant seemed annoyed that I asked her about my seat. ** there is a fee for about everything on frontier. I would rather pay additional for the tickets on other airlines because the process to check in luggage, get to the gate, and have the Benicia of not being charged for every little thing is WORTH IT. You end up paying more to fly frontier by the time you are done paying for the extras. I prefer the one stop shop. Convenient and no drama."
Cons: "We sat on the tarmac in DSM for an hour!!!"
Cons: "Was not aware of the cost to carry on a bag or pre assign general seats. Would avoid flying Frontier in the future unless no other options were available."
Pros: "I arrived to my destinations on time....that is all."
Cons: "The whole negative experience started with having to pay for my carry on. Yes, this was my fault for not knowing or expecting the extra $45 each way for my carry on. Water was not given during the three hour flight - you pay for all refreshments! The planes feel like a budget experience with cheap fold down trays and arm rests that slam down making lots of noise, and there is very little foom under the seat to put a small bag. My same small back pack that fits under other airlines seats wasn't even close to going under forcing me to straddle for the the entire flight. I will NOT use Frontier again. The airline feels like Alligeant that costs much less. I'll stick with Southwest!"
Pros: "Everyone was friendly, courteous, and professional."
Cons: "No warning of carry-on charges."
Cons: "Tight seating not well padded. Crew very pleasant"
Pros: "The check in Gal was great."
Cons: "Everything else."
Pros: "Uncomfortable. I couldn't even cross my legs. Otherwise a good flight except for 45 minutes to get my luggage"
Cons: "Added fees for seat and carryon luggage."
Pros: "I didn't like anything except for getting to my destination in one piece."
Cons: "I will never fly Frontier again. The stewardess on the first leg of the trip was very rude to the people seated in front of me. They were unorganized and they nickel and dime you to death. who makes you pay for your seat? Frontier. They emailed me five thousand emails about checking in after I checked in. They want to charge you three dollars for a soda. It is not customer service. Having a survey for customer happiness is stupid when they aren't working to make the customer happy. It has become evident that airlines do not care about their customers anymore. I mean if you are going to make us pay for everything then at least be polite. And on the return flight we had to sit for a half hour and wait while they moved another plane that was occupying out gate."
Pros: "Very nice flight and crew. The gave me priority seat and boarding because I'm military as well as 2 free carryons."
Cons: "Only thing to make it better would've been wifi"
Cons: "Every time they delay in flight this is happened 20 days before on same flight"
Cons: "Hidden Fees, thankfully we could afford the extra $20/seat. On the first leg of the flight it was 100 degrees in the cabin, and there were NO beverages available at all. We were told there would be a 5 minute wait on the tarmac before unloading...we've been here for 45 minutes with no end in sight."
Pros: "The crew did a wonderful job accommodating me with my special needs. The personnel at the airport made me feel very comfortable,"
Cons: "I know there is nothing to be done about it, but the seats on the plane were cramped, and the I swear, the pilots found every bit of rough weather to fly thru. Sometimes I felt like a pinball being bounced around."
Pros: "Fast flight, nice crew."
Cons: "Extra for luggage, charging for water, 4 hour delay."
Pros: "I liked the leg space."
Cons: "The flight attendants spilled ice water all over a man. They also skipped over my row with the cart and we were all wide awake."
Cons: "Paying for a carry on bag"
Cons: "Delay and Carry-luggage is charged"
Pros: "Not Much. Miss the old Frontier"
Cons: "Hidden Fees - Charges for luggage, Carry On, Drinks, Snacks, assigned seats, charging for seats that recline. $88.00 round trip fair turned into $200 Surprised they didn't charge to use the restrooms Uncomfortable - worst seats ever Will never fly Frontier again if I don't have too. Sad to see a good airline that has been bought out and ruined."
Pros: "Very friendly crews. I wasn't troubled with checking the size of my carry on. Very roomy middle seats. Above average for the competitive prices they offer as long as you don't pay any additional for carry on or checked bags."
Cons: "Seats don't recline, no complimentary beverage service. Storage room under seat is very small and if your bag will not fit rules are you must pay for your carry on."
Pros: "Starts off seeming cheep..."
Cons: "Then you pay for "every" thing. Seats do not recline on a 5+ hour flight, what is that?"
Pros: "Flight crew pleasant, even making sarcastic comments about the cheapness of their airline. For example, "If you don't like our service, there are 8 emergency exits on this plane." We arrived safely and our bags got there too!"
Cons: "It was a tough day due to weather delays and cancellations, but the airport crew was overwhelmed and failed to control the massive crowd. At one point, service members started calling out destinations and it became a free for all. Passengers jumped over each other and across the ropes to cut in front. Elderly and children were pushed aside. At the gate, it was announced "in 15 minutes, we will ask passengers needing help to board", followed immediately by another crew member "we are already boarding all passengers!", then right back to the first crew "we are not boarding yet, we will start boarding in 15 minutes". Confusion! Departure was listed on time, but we really left 40 minutes late."
Pros: "Even with very rainy weather in Austin, flight left on time. Crew was very nice on both our flights. Plane was clean. Comfortable enough--about what to expect in this day and age."
Cons: "A lot of fees with Frontier flights. Wny not just include in the original fare of the flight?"
Cons: "The initial price did not include a free seat . Had to pay $16.00 extra for a seat."
Pros: "I loved the gate agent. She gave me a row of seats to myself. I also loved the flight attendants. They were very courteous, friendly and professional. The pitch between the seats were decent. They definitely respect the passenger and provide excellent pricing. I traveled without bags or personal item. I understood exactly what I was doing. Going to Vegas for 24 hours for next to nothing."
Cons: "I felt the snacks were overpriced. It was kind of funny seeing the flight attendants use debit or credit cards for each item on their cart."
Cons: "Worst flying experience of my life. Terrible terrible airline. Had everyone wait for a 5 hour delayed flight the. Changed plane had to remove people from the flight then after reissuing each person seats and boarding cancelled the flight once everyone was finally on board. Never ever again."
Pros: "The flight was extremely delayed and airport staff did not clearly communicate late gate changes or updated boarding times. There was mass confusion and the whole experience was quite unpleasant."
Pros: "Original ticket price was cheaper than any other, and flight time options were great for an early flight out or late flight in, etc."
Cons: "Cheap and cheap. O'hare has an awful set-up for bag check and security for frontier/spirit/virgin/other cheap airlines together. You wait to print, then wait to check, then wait to drop your own bags (with zero instruction or customer service or signage), then wait for security. They hate for EVERYTHING: just to check in for your flight and pick a seat. $11-17-37 to sit together. Each. And then for bags. $35 to check and $60 to carry on (makes no sense) even when checking in online early. And even more cost to have both checked and carry on. And seats don't recline, that costs more. And have a 4inch by 5 inch-ish tray table. And EVERYTHING costs money onboard from WATER to Pepsi to snacks. It cost an extra $92 each way for two of us to check in and check one small bag. My back hurts and I will ALWAYS pay a bit more for another airline."
Cons: "4 hour delay makes dick a dull boy Never again, frontier"
Cons: "the time , the plan is not on time and the customers service they are not patients ."
Cons: "1) Although flights are fairly low fare, they get you with baggage. Had to pay to check OR to carry-on. 2) Flew out of Chicago O'Hare - a major hub - and Frontier, Spirit, Virgin America, & Alaskan all shared a SINGLE security check. Yes ladies and gentleman, one security scanner. I have never in my life (usually fly American, United, or Southwest) waited more than 30 minutes to get through security. This time was well over an hour, I almost missed my flight. 3) On-board staff was friendly (all but one woman), but there were no complimentary beverages or snacks. I did pay for some & they were not too pricey, but having to whip out my credit card yet again made my whole travel experience feel far from effortless."
Pros: "The flight was cancelled 1-1/2 hours before the scheduled take-off [9 am flight on 12/16/15] without any explanation whatsoever. The counter representatives gave very inadequate instruction, and did not appear very compassionate to the customers. I had to wait on hold for a CSR for 50 minutes before I was helped. Then, it took 45 more minutes to schedule another flight on American Airlines. The whole event was unnecessarily stressful."
Cons: "We didn't even get to go on the plane. The flight was cancelled before we got to the airport. They gave us no explanation why it was cancelled. Also the information they gave us was terrible. A woman gave us a parse that said "call this number to reschedule" as soon as we called it, the reply was "I'm sorry we are closed try calling this number." It took about 2 hours to figure out how to get scheduled on a different airline."
Cons: "A $30 ticket ended up costing me over $200 because of all the extra charges for baggage. Never once have I been charged to take my guitar on a plane but they wanted $60 at the gate. Not to mention that I flew Frontier with my guitar for free 3 weeks before this happened. I will never fly with Frontier again. Do yourself a favor and choose an airline that is upfront about what they will charge you for."
Pros: "One of the worst landing I have ever experienced. The pilot pancaked the landing. Everything else went as expected. The seats were uncomfortable and small. The staff was super nice. Everything else went as expected."
Cons: "Lots of delays"
Cons: "carr y on 70 $"
Pros: "Everything was terrific from the desk crew to the entire flight staff"
Cons: "The whole process was bad... from checking in my bags to getting off the plane. The staff was somewhat rude, everything costs money, and the pilot flew like it was his first time."
Cons: "Beware of hidden cost- you need to pay for a 'carry-on' and seat selection (even within 24 hours of check in) Terrible crew- pilot never updated why we were on the runway and held up for 45 min after we landed. When air hostess was asked politely by one of the passengers, she rudely brushed him off and did not try to find out why. Phone service terrible- wait time over 30min with no option of call back or info about how long the wait time will be. Flight delayed for >3 hours- disorganized between landing terminal and baggage claim with no info Will never fly Frontier again unless they pay me."
Pros: "Overall cheap"
Cons: "I was told at boarding that I would have to pay for my carry on."
Pros: "Flight Attendents kept it Light Humorous and stresss free"
Cons: "In flight nausea"
Pros: "I loved this airline. The price was great. The seating was spacious and comfortable for the price we paid. The crew overall friendly. I would book with this airline again."
Cons: "The improvement that could be made is in customer service. Better customer service towards the fliers, friendliness and accommodating."
Cons: "Poor customer service. Rude staff."
Pros: "The flight attendants were nice."
Cons: "There was no wifi. Seat didn't recline. No screen of any kind to see where you are."
Pros: "Departed on time"
Cons: "Hidden fees for everything!! Not even free water on board! They charge for even checking in at the airport! I much rather pay united airlines full fee and get to know my fare than buying this “cheap” fare and get hit with fees for checking a bag, choosing a seat, etc. This “upsale” strategy is low."
Cons: "You get what you pay for."
Pros: "It’s a nice color yellow."
Cons: "Their staff is trained to be awful. They refused to check our bags even though we were there before their final cut off and their staff made no effort to help us at all and then threatened to kick us out of the terminal when we pressed them on it. Every good experience you’ve ever read about on Spirit is a fluke and every bad experience is a normal example of how they do business."
Cons: "Pay for checked and carry-on luggage, no leg room, pay for everything, in the end this discount flight all charges leveled was more expensive than if I had just picked a better airline to begin with"
Pros: "Nothing to say here"
Cons: "Flight was postponed 3 hours and lucky for Delta Airlines I was able to get a seat on their flight and not ruin the plans made around the original schedule! I understand when there are weather issues but Spirit was the only “delayed” airline which tells me that there was poor planning on their part for something. No reasons were given by the ticket counter either."
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "Seats too close and didn’t recline"
Cons: "Paying $45 for a carry-on bag is ridiculous as well as $50 for a checked in bag. Everything about this flight was cheap and was just dirty/uncomfortable. Will NEVER fly with spirit again."
Pros: "It was very roomie"
Cons: "Customer service was not the best. Service was very unprofessional. Boarding was delayed and customers were rushed due to it. Flight was below satisfactory even without there being much scheduled turbulence. Seemed like pilots were rather inexperienced."
Cons: "$58 per bag. &$ food charged at 10$,,,,Ripped off"
Pros: "quick boarding on and off the flight; seats semi-comfortable"
Cons: "anything that is not a single personal item (carry on and luggage) costs $60 each"
Pros: "The color of the plane loud and wild passengers."
Cons: "An aborted Landing approximately 800ft above the ground. Pilot almost landed at he wrong airfield"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and I liked the sense of humor mixed in with the overhead announcements"
Cons: "Upon checking in I was informed that my backpack counts as my ONE free carry on and I would have to pay $50 to check in my tiny suitcase or $55 to have it as a second "carry on." Since when is a back pack a carry on? Boarding was delayed for at least 30 minutes with no explanation given to us. Very bare minimum plane with no entertainment other than what you bring with you. Any snack or drink costs money, no cash."
Pros: "straight flight."
Cons: "Paid more for extra leg room but it was minimal help. Seats don't recline at all. Water even cost money. WOW."
Pros: "Only the great part was the staff very friendly and made the flight fun."
Cons: "Their flights ar cheap for a reason. You have to pay for your carry on bag, the seats are never tight and don't lean back, and you have to pay for everything on board."
Cons: "TERRIBLE SERVICE!! The flight was delayed @ Phoenix. Flight was supposed to leave at 12 55 am and it finally departed until 2:23 am. The representatives @ Phoenix told us we wouldn't have ANY issues with our connecting flight to FLL as they would use the same aircraft When we landed Dallas, they told us our flight to FLL was waiting for us which was a complete LIE. The representatives at Dallas were disengaged and didn't seem to look for options to get us out of there,. Finally, a representative came and told us we had 2 options: OPTION 1: Stay in Dallas 31 HOURS!! and take the next flight to FLL (no hotel arrangements were offered) or take the next flight to Orlando and move ground to FLL. Very disappointed with your service. NEVER FLYING ON SPIRIT AGAIN"
Pros: "flight was fine, crew was great and no issues."
Cons: "flight kept getting delayed and then would be pushed up."
Cons: "The flight was delayed I missed my next flight and had to sit at the airport for 14 hrs"
Pros: "Everything worked flawlessly. No problems. Nice people."
Cons: "No room no service horrible everything"
Cons: "Charges for everything. $55 for a carry-on bag? Come on (fortunately, I had only a small backpack so I didn't have to pay that)! Extra charges if you want a non-random seat. Bullying at the gate ("If you haven't paid the $55 for your carry-on bags by boarding, I'm gonna charge you $100!!!"). Seats seemed even more cramped than usual. I found the whole experience pretty unpleasant and will generally avoid Spirit."
Pros: "We got to our destination safely"
Cons: "Baggage pricing, No food, seats did not recline. This is a nickel and dime airlines.. We spend almost $100 for 1 bag and a carry on item."
Cons: "First, when I booked I was not given option to pay for baggage or choose seats, meaning I wasn't able to use the cheapest option. I had to spend at least 2 hours on the phone with a Spirit agent to get to pay for my bags before arriving at the airport at all - I wasn't able to do it online. On day of flight: the first leg was delayed. When we got to layover our final flight had been cancelled with no reason given. We were booked on another flight 8 hours later which meant we got in late enough that I had to miss another day of work. The Spirit agent at the gate in Las Vegas was also extremely rude. I also didn't get any phone or email updates."
Pros: "Everything went smooth."
Cons: "All the fees were too high and didn't like that they go up if you don't do it right away. I paid for a carry on and then had to check it and it cost me $5.00 more for a lot smaller bag what a joke! Large suitcase $50 little carry on $60 way to high!!!!!"
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "The fact that spirit delayed my flight from San Diego to Vegas for 3 hours, making me miss my connecting flight from Vegas to Detroit by literally 30 mins. They wouldn't hold that plane for 30 mins since it was their fault we were late in the first place. And then the only flight next was 9 hours later"
Cons: "I must pay for my baggage. It's crazy couse I paid 100$ for my ticket and 50 more. Food???? What are you asking about?! There aren't free water! It was bad expirience. To go back I rent a car Mustang 5.0 it was more better, exiting!"
Pros: "I read so many reviews that- in other words- said the Spirit experience was awful that i went to the airport prepared for the worst. Turns out I was wrong. Friendly staff, quick line to drop off baggage, quick boarding process and the clerk at the gate changed our seats so we could be together and gave us the 3rd row. Nothinng bad to say about this airline."
Pros: "I found that my flight was very economical , on time at a convenient time , & that's all that I am interested in . Thankyou very much."
Pros: "Thought it was a good deal when booking."
Cons: "Found out that EVERYTHING "extra" came with very high fees; so high that my flight cost as much if not more than the competition."
Pros: "The pilot did a good job."
Cons: "The bag fees were more than the flight. The travel insurance that I purchased on Spirits website with the tickets, even though they had emailed me a copy of the policy, had no record of the purchase when I called them with a question. Spirits website lists the size limits of carry on bags and the fees. They explain that it's more at the gate. I paid in advance for my laptop bag after measuring it and finding it did not meet the requirements of free carry on. At the gate I found out the laptop bag would be no charge. Spirits policy? No refunds of course. Just a $90 credit if I ever use their crappy airline in the future. I requested and paid extra for seats that were not over the wing (my wife takes pictures). We were over a wing. I paid for early boarding. It was never called ( the attendant asked for passengers with special needs). In closing, I am very disappointed that Kayak would even associate themselves with these scam artists. Low cost has limits. It's still supposed to be a service industry. Spirit is atrocious, but I became entangled with them through Kayak. I wont forget that."
Cons: "i didn't like the fact that every little detail cost money my flight started at 200. ended over 300. windsor ca to vagus i will never use spirit again and i will tell all me Friends to stay away"
Cons: "The crew on my first flight were very accommodating and friendly, but on my second flight they were NOT so friendly and everyone around me was talking about how rude and unfriendly they were. This was my first time flying on Spirit and I asked for a pillow and the response I received from the Flight Attendant was "What!....we don't have pillows" Another reason I was unhappy was because on my connecting flight from Texas to Chicago we were delayed on the plane and NOBODY told us what the problem was and why we were not moving to the runway. After 42 minutes we were told "we are waiting for paperwork from Maintenance" that is it! Not how long they expect the wait to be or come around and offer us some drinks or snacks. The Flight Attendants DID NOT even walk the aisle....not even once! We finally took off after 75 minute delay. It was if we were on the plane alone...this is not how I would have handled the situation. I also obtained the Spirit credit card to rack up some miles, but not I am giving it a second thought!"
Pros: "I got to Vegas to see my brother that I haven't seen in 25 years."
Cons: "The whole plane ride, uncomfortable, tight seating, noisy!"
Cons: "My flight and all other flights to Minneapolis were cancelled that day. My only option was to reschedule for the following day. Instead of dealing with that mess, I got a refund and booked a different flight with Delta. The whole experience has put a negative taste in my mouth for Spirit Airlines. Will not fly again!"
Pros: "Check-in employees were very helpful."
Cons: "After paying all the additional fees that is normally included with other airlines, the cheap price for the flight quickly rose above what it would cost through other airlines. I will never use Spirit airlines again. To many extra fees."
Pros: "The boarding process was actually fairly smooth and efficient."
Cons: "I purchased the Spirit ticket because it was ~$30 cheaper than my other options. I was okay with the connecting flights for the savings. Silly me, I didn't check the fine print-- Spirit charges to CARRY ON a bag. Both ways. The $30 I thought I saved was quickly erased when I ended up spending $90 to carry a duffel bag on the plane. All FOUR of my flights were delayed by nearly two hours. Seats were thin, sparsely padded, and cramped."
Pros: "The crew coming back had a sense of humor. Made it more enjoyable."
Cons: "Still think your luggage rates are outrageous. What I saved on flight the luggage check in rate made it more expensive. Probably won't use you again. Sorry, but money is tight. And charging the outrageoust rates for snacks. Shame on you."
Pros: "Cost of fare"
Cons: "No leg room"
Cons: "Spirit cancelled my flight."
Pros: "Flights were on time and smooth, crew was pleasant."
Cons: "A lot of extra cost with Spirit which you don't see when you book with sites like Kayak. Spirit charges for seats if you want to select one and charges for every bag, including carry ons."
Pros: "Low cost"
Cons: "Crowded seating"
Pros: "Easy, plane was clean. Super efficient"
Cons: "That you get nickel and dimed for everything"
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "Boarding plane before mechanical check so sat an extra hour on the plane in very crowded seats. The woman seated next to us was allowed to board very intoxicated and ended up pooping her pants and we had to sit next to her for the entire flight. Unfriendly staff. No smiles, chomping gum, reading safety tips with no eye contact. Expensive non-alcoholic drinks"
Pros: "This is the first spirit airlines flight in years that was not only on time but early. Everyone was kind and professional. This was a real change from our previous spirit experiences."
Cons: "Michigan to Vegas was far too long to be flying spirit. Uncomfortable and unfriendly."
Pros: "I'm 6'6/260lbs. There was an open seat in the exit row, and the flight attendant gave me that open seat. Give her a Nobel prize."
Cons: "The plane was very uncomfortable, especially for a 5 hour flight. Nothing was complimentary even though we paid for EVERYTHING. I have flown at least 10 other airlines in my life and would never choose this one over any other."
Pros: "The staff was nice she always came to see what we wanted to buy"
Cons: "Had to literally buy everything . Peanuts wasn't even free . Was cold. Seats don't go back . Seat belt light would come back in every 10 min . We couldn't lay in the whole seat to sleep . The food tray was the size of a hand held game boy , Bag was 3lbs over weight and had to pay $25 not to mention the check bags $30+tax each bag each way."
