Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Everything was generally great I don’t have any complaints."
Cons: "Well it’s nothing you can change I was pleased that the flight took 8 hours instead of 9 but because we were early it was a bit inconvenient that Heathrow had us do a “hard” arrival I think that’s what it was called so instead of a gate we got off on the tarmac."
Cons: "American Airlines lost our luggage and both flights were late, wife her cell phone and credit cards due to running in airport to catch our flight to Lisbon. Not impressed."
Pros: "Nothing. I missed this flight because of a delay of my flight on Friday."
Pros: "Short connection times"
Cons: "Being on time because of short connection time"
Pros: "Friendly crew and relatively new entertainment system"
Cons: "- Seats are very tight - Pay for luggage even on a transatlantic flight and your seat (if you want to choose) - Food was below average - even for airline standards, ran out of drink options even for dinner (the second time they serve drinks)"
Pros: "Crew was very nice, and helpful."
Cons: "I remember you used to get to choose from some seats even if you didn't pay extra. Since the smaller airlines started charging to choose, now the big ones are doing it as well. I checked in for two tickets at the same time, but my wife and i were still separated. Frustrating"
Cons: "It was very hot on the plane."
Pros: "nice entertainment when you use the AA app."
Cons: "Unbelievable turbulent and bumpy ride. Not AA's fault but the question was "how was the trip?" It was a white-knuckle ride."
Pros: "that it's over."
Cons: "sat on tarmac for 45 minutes! AFTER landing... unacceptable."
Pros: "The attendant in first class was really good at his job. The rest seemed a bit lost"

Pros: "comfortable seats"
Cons: "Well organized loading, consistent beverage service"
Pros: "One of the few non-stop flights between Seattle and Philadelphia. Convenient times for my travel needs"
Cons: "There are 9 boarding groups some of which have no one in them. I don't understand why. Seats don't have screens for entertainment so you have to use your own device to. Make sure you have extra batteries since there is no power to charge on board."
Pros: "Other passengers"
Cons: "It was terribly hot and the attendants didn’t serve us regularly. The skipped us when we wanted cold water:"
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Cons: "The airline is so outdated and behind the times of their competitors, their in that they don't have in flight entertainment unless you download their app and give them your email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: "Excellent and original Japanese foods"
Pros: "Only good thing about the flight is the price."
Cons: "I do not like the two hour delay, after a hour maybe consider getting another plane."

Cons: "We were delayed an hour because the plan was in the hanger! Why? We were all there, didn't American know the plane should be at he gate! No escplanation as to why the plane was not there other than it was in the hanger! Airlines need to let the customers be flexible especially when are!"
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: "left and arrived on time. helpful staff. no glitches. reasonably comfortable."
Cons: "i did not rate food and entertainment because i did not partake."
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: "Nothing!!! WORST EXPERIENCE IVE HAD TRAVELING"
Cons: "This was the worst day we have ever had flying. Spent 12 plus hours at the airport! Got on and off planes for 6 hours because of mechanical problems. 7 hours later they canceled the flight due to crew fatigue. The customer service was horrible plane was dirty it was an horrific experience. Alaska booked us with American Airlines. I will never travel American ever again. I'm considering using a different booking site. The experience was the worst I've ever had. Kayak Alaska and American are getting bad marks from me!!!!"

Cons: "Very cramped seats"
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Seats. At 6”5’ tight"

Pros: "the front desk at united was awful. The flight crew were very efficient. Terminal 2 is great at Sky Harbor."
Cons: "nicely done, kayak!!"
Cons: "Boarding before scheduled time was not pre announced, seats lack legroom, unlikely to choose United again"
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"
Pros: "It was a bus trip. No food, crappy seats, and treated like we were cattle. The only positive was United’s new direction? The seats are smaller but yield more leg room. They will probably rethink that. There is inflight entertainment if you have your own device with WiFi and a screen. So pros and cons, but essentially a bus trip."
Cons: "Most disliked the seats. Not very comfortable for a three hour trip."
Cons: "Lost luggage’s"
Pros: "Everything was usual, nothing special."
Cons: "The planes were late, but more importantly they lost my luggage somewhere."
Cons: "I couldn't make my trip because of work. Therefore had to cancel but Lufthansa would not provide refund so I had a wasted ticket. Not happy"
Pros: "I had an excellent experience in United booked through you. I was in the fourth boarding group. Was that because I booked through you? There wasn’t much room for my wheeled carry on but I did find a spot. On the Akron flight there was no room for wheeled carry on. We had to wait outside for them to get off the last minute carry on."
Cons: "Just being in the fourth boarding group. There weren’t many of us so I assume it was because we booked through you."
Pros: "Very friendly crew"
Cons: "My earphones jack did not work."
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Pros: "I'm glad I didn't get kicked off!"
Cons: "I did not like the boarding process and I had a fear of being kicked off."
Pros: "The flight was average. Nothing stood out bout what I liked."
Cons: "I didn't like that my seat didn't recline. The temperature was very warm. Boarding took an exceptional amount of time and it was chaotic as we all stood in group lines for long periods of time."
Cons: "Last row - very large man that should have needed two seats !"
Pros: "But as far as I know, nobody was beaten up by your goons. From now on, I will fly United only as a last result."
Cons: "WiFi not worth anything unless you pay."
Pros: "I loved the ground crew. Flights were delayed, but they kept us informed an expedited turn around. Also I had to change flights to get home and their phone-support was perfect. Hey, they even had a cookie on the last flight that was quite good - go figure!"
Cons: "We went through TSA screening and weren't stopped or checked for our carry on. However when it came time to board the plane the agent stopped us, pulled us to the side and told us we couldn't board the plane because our carry on were too big. We then condensed our luggage while no one else was being stopped or asked to check their carry on for size in the bins and the agent withheld our boarding passes. We felt we were unfairly being targeted for the color of our skin and our names."
Pros: "Flight attendants were nice"
Cons: "When we flew to Hawaii, there was a lot more comfort and space around us. My son flew on American and met us there, he had movies he could watch on screen in front of him, free cokes and snacks; we had water...no snacks....no movies....AND WE WERE REALLY CRAMPED....would not fly this airline again"
Pros: "Check-In was very fast and easy. Counter assistance was top notch"
Cons: "It wasn't United's fault that their flight was delayed so that was the only snafu in the entire trip"
Pros: "Courtesy and helpful"
Cons: "I don't have any complaints"
Pros: "Friendly staff."
Cons: "Lack of leg room."
Pros: "UNITED FLIGHT, great service, LOTS OF LEG ROOM! Pilot and first officer greeted the passengers as they deplaned."
Cons: "Touch down a little bumpy, not so smooth, but ok"
Pros: "No issues staff was friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Everything went well Lloyds"
Pros: "Enjoyed be seats & actually had enough leg room even w a middle seat. Very pleasant attendant...only had enough tea for a half cup.....came back w full cup AFTER service cart left aisle"
Pros: "I liked the fact that we had receptacles to plug in, that was such a huge plus. The crew was nice, the plane boarded, pretty quick."
Cons: "The windows, I know it's a complete design issue, but if the windows were bigger, or really if they were a little higher,"
Cons: "I don't think I will be choosing to fly with United going forward. The staff at the desks were rude and very short. I had a layover in Chicago and did not receive any notification that my flight was cancelled due to maintenance. I went to each desk to try and find an associate and no one was available to help the several individuals wondering how to get switched to a new flight. All of us were just given a phone number to call. Once I found someone thy told me that there was no seats available on any of the flights. They found one seat on a plane that was going to laguardia instead of my destination of Newark and then proceeded to tell me that my bags will still go to Newark and it was my job to make sure I filed to get them. (Same thing happened the last time I flew with United) I'm very disappointed all together with how I was treated as a customer."
Pros: "The flight was dark"
Cons: "I had to check my bag because their boarding process requires me to board last."
Cons: "My 5hr layover that was not supppose to happen"
Pros: "The price and the time for departure"
Cons: "The delay in boarding and the delay when we landed due to no gate for the plane to park. What food a tinny bag of pretzels and over priced snacks. I was in the last row and had a window seat but a non English speaking person would not move and the staff would not assist they suggested I sit in the isle seat."
Pros: "Process went smoothly. Mainly everything that was expected was provided."
Cons: "I was disappointed the entertainment option on the United app was not available for this flight. Also, trash was not collected until the end of the flight which was irritating to keep I. My pocession for the entirety of he flight."
Pros: "Very good service and great pilot"
Pros: "The plane was on time."
Cons: "Leg room is terrible. My knees were being pushed into hard plastic for 3+ hours."
Pros: "So much better than these cut rate airlines that low ball the price, but it's actually more when you add on bags and a soda."
Cons: "Everything was great."
Cons: "Terrible experience in onboarding.. Later on i was made to sit in flight for 5 hours at mumbai airport"
Pros: "Ease of boardingf"
Cons: "Flight from Phoenix was way too crowded"
Cons: "It was a red eye and I couldn't get comfy."
Cons: "Lack of comfortable space. :-("
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"
Cons: "The 3 hour layover in Chicago. Why I had to go to Chicago then back to Moline. Kinda dumb. Food tad bit on the pricey side."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats, too long of a layover"
Pros: "Flight was good"
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."
Pros: "seats excellent service"
Cons: "My flight was eventually rescheduled 13 hours later."
Cons: "Called ahead after landing to say we were on our way to connecting flight. They told us to run to the gate, which we did and got there just after they closed the door to the plane. All I got was a unsympathetic "sorry we just couldn't hold it any longer" after being told to run to the gate and they know we were on our way. That 2 minutes caused 10 more hours of flight delays and cancelled flights for us. Terrible."
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."
Cons: "11 hour delay .....Flight 740 From phx to den departure @6 am had a mechanical. First it was going to be delayed until 10 am them 11 am then 4 pm then 530 pm .it left at 6 pm . It got in at 9 pm by the time we got the car and got to out friend home it would have been close to 11 . We would have been up for 20 hours ( got up at 3 am to get there for a 6 am flight . We were going to a business meeting in demver in the morning in the afternoon a 70 th birthday lunch for my best friend. This trip was planned for months . We live in phx after it was clear we had missed both events we went back home @5 We ended up paying for a supper shuttle and a rent a car in Denver . We paid all that money To go noware the customer service woman there , was uncaring to everyone on board we were just on our own . I am heartbroken we missed the party ."
Pros: "Very cheap"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable no elbow room or leg room and the chairs are hard."
Pros: "New plane"
Cons: "Having to pay to pick my seat and limited leg room. Also charging for a carry on for the sole purpose of seeming comparable in price to airlines that don't charge for that is rediculous."
Cons: "Cramped and uncomfortable."
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!!!"
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."
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."
Pros: "Arrived early. Friendly crew."
Cons: "Baggage fees."
Pros: "I liked that I was able to select a seat."
Cons: "I did not like that I had to pay extra to select a seat, especially because the seat was not any more comfortable or spacious than the other seats on the plane. The staff rolled their eyes when customers requested service. I am never flying Frontier again."
Pros: "Not much. Very amateur service"
Cons: "To pay $40 for a carry on bag is being a thief. The seat in the plane do not recline... comfort is a thing of the past!"
Pros: "We landed safely"
Cons: "The flight crew was atrocious. They were rude when they spoke to us and when I asked for refreshments they turned around as if to get them for me and then the lady sitting next to my husband had to get their attention again to ask a second time if I could have water and Chex Mix so I could take my medicine. I have serious health conditions and I couldn't even get water without paying $3 a bottle. It is disgusting to me that we are charged for flight and then charged for Refreshments during that flight. Any other Airline who charges for a seat to take you to your destination includes at least drinks and nuts for free but not you."
Cons: "The same 2 screaming babies entire flights. Attendants allowed with no assistance."
Cons: "Lack of organization and a delay of 5+ hours on a 4-hour flight."
Pros: "The actual flight itself was smooth and as expected."
Cons: "Everything else but the actual on air time itself was awful. At ORD the lines were short/fast but the agent was a little rude, it was my first time flying Frontier so I just had a few questions and she made me feel like I was annoying her or wasting her time. At the gate the boarding process was as expected, except I think the gate agent could have done a bit better crowd control, it was really cumbersome to get across the multitudes of people with unassigned seats or later zones that were clogging up the entrance just standing there. The flight was smooth. Upon arrival at PHX luggage took upwards of 30+ minutes to arrive and some passengers had to wait much longer. My luggage arrived damaged. I filed a report at the Frontier desk but their response was to ask me to leave my broken luggage there, take my items in clear trash bag and wait for a voucher. How am I supposed to take my items to a hotel for business meetings in a trash bag? That's not an acceptable solution to a problem I did not create, baggage handlers did it. When I got to the hotel I realized that the items I had on the front pocket of my luggage were tampered with and one item was missing. I was told I could go spend the money to replace my luggage and bring them back the receipt, and then leave them the broken luggage cause and I quote "you can't have it all". What does that even mean? I can't have MY luggage? That I brought in perfect condition and the baggage handler broke? Come on. They did not explain if they would offer a refund immediately upon receiving my receipt, it was all very rushed and vague and I was going to miss my transport so I had to leave. They did not give me a claim number or a number to call back at. Nothing. I wasn't even being rude or loud or annoyed like some customers get when these things arise. I understood perfectly that it was an accident and these things happen, but I still deserved a proper response and decent treatment, since I just paid $45 for a checked bag only to have it be broken. On the day of my departure from PHX I arrived at the airport on time, 2 hours and 15 minutes earlier from my departure. I stood in line at Frontier for an entire hour to check in my luggage even though I had checked in online and already paid my fee. I asked if there was a place for people who already were checked in and a rude airport staff member told me to just "get back in line". After waiting in line for that long suddenly the desk agent yells to all the passangers from a flight to Denver to move up to the front of the line, so about 100 or more people move ahead of me despite the vast majority of them having arrived late. I understand their flight was leaving earlier but what about our flight? How is it reasonable or fair to reward people for being late and make people who have been dutifully and calmly waiting in line FOR AN HOUR standing with heavy bags wait even longer? The whole thing was just terrible!"
Pros: "Flight left on time and great customer service ."
Cons: "Bag fees"
Cons: "It's ridiculous that you have to pay 40$ both ways for a carryon, your airline advertised a cheaper flight but with hidden fees. Will never fly again."
Cons: "Airport security was terrible."
Cons: "Paying for a carry on bag"
Pros: "This was my first flight on Frontier and didn't know what to expect. When my iPhone boarding pass wouldn't work at security I was sent to the Frontier counter and they helped me instantly. The Phoenix boarding lounge was NOT a good introduction with holes and rips in the seats and a "sofa" that rocked everyone on it whenever someone moved.. The gate attendant however was great - and funny. The plane was VERY nice and made up for the lounge plus we made it to Colorado Springs 20 minutes early! The price ($56 including fees and taxes) means I'll be looking at Frontier in the future."
Pros: "Staff was very courteous and pilot performed an excellent landing."
Cons: "Flight was delayed three times, no reason given. Arrived at 2:15 am instead of 9:45. Could have at least offered free drinks."
Cons: "My flight got canceled so I had to buy a new one."
Pros: "I liked how fast the boarding went. The flight attendants were very nice. The wine was nice. We were kept informed about the fact we were running late. Still arrived on time. Plane was clean."
Cons: "No entertainment! But I expected that so that is okay. Unclear why the question. People next to me bought a snack but the one they wanted was out. They were disappointed. I did not like the fact that luggage is so expensive to check. I could not believe I had to pay for a seat once I had bought my ticket. I thought that was part of the price of the ticket. I can't fly standing up."
Cons: "I selected the wrong flight and called to cancel. They charged me $99 and I didn't get to go on vacation."
Pros: "I really liked the tickets prices and the boarding was fairly smooth."
Cons: "I understand there is a trade off for the lower price fair but $40 a one way for your bag is a bit much. The crew largely were not very engaged with the passanger. I all but had to rais my hand and shout out to the attendant to take my order - the passanger next to me had to say something to the attendant on my behalf. I get people at one point or another have an off day - but it was bad a Ly the same on the way on second leg f the trip"
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."
Cons: "The initial price did not include a free seat . Had to pay $16.00 extra for a seat."
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: "Super uncomfortable chairs--we even upgraded to the exit row and couldn't recline and sat in the "lawn chairs"... Not worth the $ saved....."
Pros: "Flight attendants were fine."
Cons: "Paying more money for my seat. Having to pay for a carry-on."
Pros: "Clean and well kept in general."
Cons: "Boarding crew wasn't friendly, and charging for a carry-on--and increased carry-on rates during the holiday seems immoral. No complimentary drink service."
Pros: "Crew was fine."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seating, had to sit all cramped up, had to pay for water, even though got boarding pass online had to stand in line at airport for 45 min. for checkin process, had to pay extra for luggage and seat assignment."
Pros: "Nitrogen/oxygen is free to breathe."
Cons: "if you can stuff everything in your one allotted carry on bag (that’s smaller than other airlines) then great! Otherwise be prepared to pay for everything. Taking your normal sized carry on? Pay. Luggage? Pay. Assigned seat? Pay. Food and drink? Pay. Reclining seat? Forget it. Tray table for food or drink? Keep dreaming. Leg room? Hahahaha! No. In flight entertainment? Entertain yourself. When all is said and done, fly a different airline if you want any of the above."
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "First and LAST time flying Spirit. Once I had to pay the fee for having a carry on bag, the price came out closer to one of the airlines I should have used instead. The website address didn't even work from my phone, so I had to pay the $65 gate fee for the carry on. The seats weren't comfortable, didn't recline, no cushioning. No inflight entertainment of any kind. During the flight, I got up and went to the front to use the bathroom (which I KNEW was empty) and the staff directed me to use the ones in back. Why? And they never reduced the cabin pressure on the descent! The cabin was still completely pressurized for the higher altitudes well after we touched down. This feels like such an amateur mistake that simply isn't acceptable."
Cons: "They were very nice to me for volunteering to take next available flight"
Pros: "Comfortable seats and mostly friendly crew"
Cons: "Judgemental rookie flight attendant Dimensions of a standard size carry-on bag were supplied on website but did not include the wheels. So in the end, I had to pay for a personal item at the gate - which should have been free in my opinion - only because the wheels stuck out 1 inch"
Cons: "I didn't like having to pay my bag twice. My flight was delayed 2 hours causing me many issues upon my arrival."
Pros: "1st time trying your airline"
Cons: "Hidden fees, delays, baggage fees cost more than plane ticket. I was not told of extra cost to check in at airport. There was no update of delay, no passenger knew anything. Very disappointing."
Pros: "The price!"
Cons: "The seats are quite small, and the seats do not recline at all. So little leg room for those that are tall, like my husband."
Cons: "The crew very kind an smiley. Being in time."
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "Stewardess were really cool"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Stewardess rude"
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Very high rate to check in your bag, too much!"
Cons: "Children (3 within the age of 8-12)unattended left to pull on and kick the seat in front of them, loud arguing that was never addressed. My hair was pulled several times when they would grab the top of the seat to stand up or just harassing each other. I also witnessed them on cell phones that were not in airplane mode and never once did their parent reprimand them for their behavior. I had to do this from the seat in front of them. When the flight landed the entire family talked loudly about pushing their way off the plane to get to another flight, little did they know others had connecting flights to reach as well. Poor behavior & left to make others have a worse flight"
Pros: "The flight attendants were friendly"
Cons: "2 hours delay and not provided any explanation and very few updates during the wait. No offer of compensation, even the full charge for luggage was still requested. The lengthy solicitation of the credit card was tacky."
Pros: "Crew and plane were OK."
Cons: "Seats were terrible. I did not get any sleep on either cross country leg. I can usually sleep fine on planes, but the seats were plastic and had no head stabilizer, and did not recline. It was impossible to sleep. I had a "donut" pillow for my neck, but the seats really made it impossible. I won't fly Spirit again until I hear they have better seats."
Pros: "Funny flight attendant on the way to Houston. Loved his sense of humor. Good price for ticket"
Cons: "Very cold in the plane Boarding crew at the gate - looked and sounded like they just got out of college. They need a better script/training for making announcements. No option to check-in online without signing up for Free Spirit. Guess bare minimum means many things..."
Cons: "They delayed the flight on purpose such that they would not have to rebook on other airlines. As soon as the last flight to the destination left on another airline, they cancelled the flight and refused to rebook on any other airline. I got rebooked 2 days later. The cancellation was due to a lack of a crew."
Pros: "Ticketing was busy but smooth, boarding was on time and controlled, Plane was clean. Crew was awesome."
Cons: "Lost my luggage ."
Cons: "Carry on bag costs 57 dollars!"
Pros: "Crew was friendly. The flight left on time. The plane was clean."
Cons: "Seats don't recline (that's really both good and bad). Spirit's a no frills carrier, so anything extra costs more."
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."
Pros: "On time. Planes in good condition. Nice people."
Cons: "No room no service horrible everything"
Cons: "Horrible customer service"
Cons: "Hughes charges not made aware at booking. Cost nearly $200 more just for carry- on luggage! Price better overall with other airlines not booking through kayak. Tight seats. Wouldn't print out my checking in ticket without charging me. So many hidden extras, not worth the $30 initial saving. Very upset."
Pros: "We got to our destination safely"
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: "not much - low fare i guess"
Cons: "uncomfortable seats.. extra fess for almost everything including water.. no legroom.. delays"
Cons: "The dont have it anywere during booking process that not a single bag will be allowed onboard. (i mean even a hand baggage). After that they say that they have it mentioned on the boarding pass. I dont think anyone reads that in particular. More over when i checked the lady did not have a problem. The lady a the boarding brigde wanted a 100 dollars just becuase we had 1 hand bag. Pure cheating."
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "Extra charge for a carry-on"
Cons: "$52 to check bags, and bags can not weight over 40 punds. no assign seating unless you pay and additional fee. Over all the initial low cost of the boarding pass is vastly off set by the additional cost in service sfees like baggage check."
Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "Uncomfortable planes, and nickle and diming just leaves you uncomfortable."
Cons: "They will charge you to breath on the flight. Don't get tricked by the low air fair, the extras will equal to more than any other flight you would've taken. $34 for checking in a bag, $32 for carry on. $5 for a soft drink on the plane. The customer service is also horrible all employees are extremely rude and don't care about you. I will never fly with them again and I suggest you shouldn't either."
Pros: "The "seemingly low price" was very low, and is what sucked me in in the first place."
Cons: "The fact that my baggage cost more to ship them than the price of the ticket in the first place was a huge surprise. That will not happen again! The seats are cramped and comfortable only for a flight lasting less than 90 minutes. If your flight time is longer, be ready for a very sore bottom."
Pros: "The price seen on Kayak does not reflect the reality of the charges form the airline. Additional costs for luggage are excessive compared to other airlines and you feel treated like a second class citizen."
Pros: "I liked the spaciousness of the seats, and in general the cabin felt a little less cramped than some planes. Great ticket price. I liked the crew a lot, friendly, quiet."
Cons: "Boarding was confusing, there were too many people whose zone wasn't called waiting around the entry way. This crowd appeared to be the line but in fact wasn't. No Spirit employee was around to help avoid it. This wasn't a real big deal but some airlines avoid it with a simple announcement, asking those who haven't been called to remain seated. I would suggest Spirit does something similar. I don't like all the extra charges, for example for a second carry-on, but I get it, it's your way of offering cheap flights. I gave the food and entertainment only 3 stars just because of the charge, I didn't actually purchase anything."
Pros: "Low cost ticket"
Cons: "Higher cost of checked bag than other commercial airlines. Higher cost of normal sized carry-on bag where other commercial airlines are free. Different high charges of baggage purchases from ticket purchase, before online check-in, counter check-in and at gate which could be surprises for many non season travelers as well as online travel agents do not seems to provide enough info and alerts of the different charges of baggages, etc. Also charges for at the counter check-in is an absolute no no for travelers who may not be internet or computer literate."
Pros: "$45 Phoenix to LAX. Can't go wrong. My carry on easily met the requirements for the free bag. If you're going away for more than a long weekend probably makes more sense to fly another airline."
Pros: "Was a smooth, quick flight."
Cons: "Delayed a little over a half an hour."
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!"
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: "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: "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"
Cons: "On the first try, (last Monday) I didn't like the cancellation! On the second try, (last Wednesday) I didn't like the delay which would have made me miss my connecting flight! I missed work last week because of it. I had to get a refund and book another flight else where. I didn't make it home til this past Friday."
