Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Flight was on time. They fed us two meals."
Cons: "Seats in coach are incredibly cramped, and blankets are comically small. The food was pretty terrible and the vegetarian option not particularly nutritious."
Pros: "The crew were great and the flight was quick."
Cons: "The blankets are really thin and so we were cold. They do not offer eye masks anymore. So sad"
Pros: "Crew was kind & friendly. They found my wife and I empty seats where we could stretch out. Food was great too. No complaints."
Pros: "Boarding, entertainment"
Cons: "Arm rests were immobile, meaning could not take advantage of empty seat next to me."
Pros: "I like the fact that I made it to London alive. The turbulence was so bad and the pilot never came on and reassured us I was shaking and nervous all the way across the ocean"
Cons: "The boarding issue to me is a big problem you should put the conditions of the ticket up front and center for example boarding last when you are on an international flight with bags that need to be put in the overhead is a big problem having to pay for each seed internationally for each leg of the trip made my ticket just as expensive as if I had bought it from a regular company never again will I use your service rip off rip off. Once you buy the ticket then you send clarification letting the passenger know they have no rights I had no right to anything I was wondering if they were going to tell me I had to clean the plane in order to be transported from New York to Spain. A satisfied customer is a repeat customer you got over on me once but never again"
Cons: "Having to pay AGAIN for a seat choice. AND IBWAS MADE TO CHECK MY XARRY-ON BAG ALL THE WAY THRU TO ROME! WHY. WHY couldn't it only be checked to Philadelphia.?. That has taken place on other flights. Should not require checking a carry-on all the way thru on an international flight."
Cons: "Seats were too narrow and distance between sets is too small"
Pros: "Direct flight Good crew"
Pros: "On time, smooth flight. Service was meh."
Cons: "A USB port would be nice!!!"
Cons: "Delayed flight all day long from 11:58 AM till 8:00 PM, where they blamed it on traffic at RDU airport, weather in Chicago, and finally a maintenance delay for from 2:00 PM till 8 PM before they canceled!"
Cons: "The flight was two hours late leaving which caused me to miss my flight to Prague. The notifications about the delay and next steps for rescheduling the second flight were delayed and sent to the wrong email address."
Cons: "The connecting flight from Raleigh to Philly was cancelled so we missed the flight to Manchester. We booked , through Kayak, with British Air and paid extra for premium economy and the actual carrier, American, doesn’t know how to process a refund and no such seats are available on our rebooked flight 24 hours later so it has been frustrating."
Pros: "Crew was extremely helpful on boarding and on flight. Breezed through Passport area. Everyone went our of his/her way to answer our questions and then make suggestions."
Pros: "Great entertainment. Ok food and drinks. Newer777."
Cons: "Long flights are pure torture in these small seats."
Pros: "Food was edible, flight left early, arrived early in philadelpia, the customer service helped out it my baggage."
Pros: "Super smooth flight - it’s an average commuter flight - no fancy bells and whistles."
Cons: "The legroom sucked. I’m 6’1”, and my knees were up against the seat in front of me."
Pros: "Economy class seats better than UA."
Cons: "Economy class seats always have room for improvement."
Pros: "Not over crowded and friendly crew."
Pros: "The crew we're very pleasant & friendly. The flight was on time even though we sat in the runway for a bit."
Cons: "Having to pay 3 Euros for a cup of coffee. And the seats were very uncomfortable."
Pros: "But the crew was great!"
Pros: "New aircraft with good entertainment system. Did not crash."
Cons: "Very tight seat spacing in pitch and width. Screen did not tilt so even with the very minimal backrest recline viewing was not ideal. This was to "punish" me for not buying the various seating upcharges American tag onto the ticket price. It was a low cost ticket on a very convenient transatlantic flight from RDU, "Easyjet" pricing brings "Easyjet" seating. I have flow a lot, 3MM miles on UA alone, and this reminded me why AA did not get much of my business! I will have to revert to the "Continentalised" UA (another sore point!)."
Pros: "Pleasant crew; clean and generally comfortable"
Cons: "Check in / baggage drop : long wait ; rather unhelpful personnel at counter."
Pros: "Boarding, staff, service, arrival all great"
Cons: "No issues"
Pros: "Lots of space and very accommodating. The updates via email were helpful"
Pros: "Great crew, early boarding and early departure."
Cons: "Not every seat has electrical outlets. very few poorly spaced screens. Food is average. Seats don't reckine very far. I'm told it's worth catching the British Air flight from Philly bc the planes are better with a screen at each seat"
Pros: "Slick boarding"
Cons: "No movies on way out."
Pros: "Nice airplane, it appeared pretty new. Everything was clean."
Cons: "My screen was out so I didn't get to use the new technology. I could see other people using it for maps and stuff. It looks neat."
Pros: "Flight left about 30 min late but still landed in philly pretty much only time."
Cons: "I wish there was a way to request to not sit next to someone carrying on a pet."
Cons: "We could not check in online because we refused to pay for seats that I felt that already purchased or was entitled to one so I bought a ticket. When we got to the airport and checked in they did not put me and my traveling partner together meaning they didn't see them together not to mention. Our flight was delayed and we only have 4 minutes to get from gate a to gate. We got to the gate collected our boarding passes found out we were seated at the very very very back of the plane right next to the restrooms.........NICE"
Pros: "crew was exceptionally polite and courteous."
Cons: "free beverages were rushed, many passengers not get same mostly because of turbulence conditions"
Cons: "When I booked my flight, I used Kayac like I always have in the past. To begin with, I selected several flights that were listed, only to have it tell me that this flight is no longer offered, which I assume is engineered to get me to select a more expensive flight. Once I finally found a flight that was still available, I selected it and began the process of providing information and selecting seat assignments. On 2 of the 4 legs of the round trip, there were no more seats available except for upgrade seats, which resulted in an extra $100.00+ in charges. Then when I finished the transaction, I noticed an extra $200.00 charge added. End result was that I ended up paying over double what I would normally pay for this same round trip that I have made many many times. I feel, no I know, that some customer relations person will look at this comment and reply with a pre-generated response apologizing and hoping I have a better experience in the future and thank me for using Kayac. Big companies like yours look at one customer as no big deal. I'm a Physician and have the ability to reach out to multitudes. I'm going to make it my mission in life to reach out to as many people as I can through word of mouth, signs in my office, Internet and social media to let them know about the deplorable practices of your company."
Pros: "The crew was attentive friendly, energetic, educational and very helpful."
Pros: "We landed, eventually."
Cons: "The flight was late. Also, they only accept cash onboard for refreshments. That has the consequence of the crew getting on the PA system asking people for change, and scurrying around the cabin in a desperate shell game exchanging bills. It's 2016. Get with the program and accept credit cards."
Pros: "Very rude and plane was hot. No air conditioning"
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Overall smooth trip and congenial staff."
Cons: "This is coming from a western audience but there could have been more entertainment options."
Pros: "Loved that we were on time and that the counter personal were polite and patient."
Pros: "The crew was awesome and the pilot was honest about how delayed we would be."
Cons: "AA was not upfront or clear on delays at all. The plane was very delayed and they did not communicate clearly."
Pros: "Safe trip"
Cons: "I froze the entire time"
Pros: "That we at least made it to Chicago."
Cons: "That the plane coming into Raleigh from Dallas had technical problems so it made us miss our connecting flight in Chicago. I needed to be at work in Des Moines Monday morning at 8 and they bumped us to a flight from Chicago to Des Moines for 12:00 pm Monday afternoon. We had to pay $280 to rent a car and I drove all night and went straight to work without even going home to shower or get ready or anything. My 4 and a half year old son had to endure the whole thing too."
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "Never offered any of the food they were walking by with. Only 1st class got everything"
Pros: "Service, comfort, timeliness."
Cons: "Food was marginal, especially the chicken in the salad, which was petrified."
Cons: "No movies, no headphones, no wet wipes. Not your fault, but i missed my connections."
Pros: "The on flight attendants were very courteous"
Cons: "The flight was delayed and no information was available for my connection. When I went to the gate to ask about my connecting flight I was ignored. And the gate attendant behaved as though I was bothering him."
Pros: "Window seat"
Cons: "Unorganized boarding. Not a smooth flight. Landing was questionable."
Pros: "Customer service, everyone was very polite, that makes a difference in your travel experience."
Cons: "Flight was an 1hr late arriving, this seems to be the trend for AA. For the past four weeks I have flown from Mami to San Antonio or Huston,and my flights have been more than an hour late. The last two flights I had a connecting flight and the connecting flight were hours late, hints that's why I paid more for a direct flight and it took of an hour after departure. I don't understand what the problem is, I fly AA frequently and never experienced such unreliable air service in regard to timeliness and no regard for clients time. Hopefully this helps, management should really look into the Texas leg, once again for the past month the flights haven't depart or arrived to its destination on time. Finally, I use AA frequently to travel overseas and I never experienced such lateness as my travel inside the USA (Texas especially). Sincerely, Mr harris"
Pros: "Prior to getting in to the security area at RDU, my Mother in Law gets a pat down because she didn't have ID. (She hasn't driven in over 10 years). She kept her cool and cooperated."
Cons: "I know the TSA was just following their protocol to help make us all safer, however, one look at her would tell you she was o.k. to go thru."
Pros: "The only saving grace were the extremely helpful people at the front desk of American Airlines that worked tirelessly to get my boyfriend and I on a flight to New York for our event that night."
Cons: "I did not take this flight in the end because I got a call AS I WAS BOARDING that my flight was cancelled from Washington to New York and was advised by the American workers at the counter to not get on the flight to Washington since there were less flights to New York from there than RDU."
Pros: "The new premiere plus was pretty nice and roomy with recliner feature and big personal screen. I'll try this again."
Pros: "nothing! entertainment should vd a one alos, not s friendly star system"
Cons: "over an hour wait. gate agents change in the middle of the wait time... no info was given s to what the mechanical problem. did di a very good job in communicating time! just totally screwed up."
Pros: "Flight left on time and arrived almost 30 minutes early."
Cons: "The general shrinking size of airplane seats is ridiculous. And one of the restrooms was not locking properly."
Pros: "Thankful for infight entertainment and wifi"
Cons: "United flight attendants (not former continental) really need attitude overhauls. Customer Service is your job, stop acting as though assisting passengers is an inconvenience to you."
Pros: "Quick and smooth"
Cons: "We were asked to be at the airport 8hrs ahead of time, so we arrived 3am. United desk workers arrived at 4am."
Cons: "Pretty much everything I hated, starting from the time they charged me extra 100 bucks for second luggage which was mentioned as free both by kayak and Lufthansa to me, major breach of customer trust. Apart from that the crew was in general rude, didn't find the experience anywhere close to comfort"
Pros: "Good service, overall."
Cons: "You have to download United Airline's App in order to enjoy Inflight Entertainment. You could as well have it active in a webpage, I think."
Pros: "The plane was clean, airy, comfortable, and not overbooked. The flight attendants treated me very well. Boarding was easy and the gate agent was extra pleasant."
Cons: "The flight attendants were downright rude to some of the other passengers, the ticketing agent had a nasty attitude and made for a very poor "first contact" experience with the airline. The front desk agents at the United Club in EWR were aggressively officious with a lot of the guests that day as well. Overall, customer service was very poor, even though the attendant on the flight were quite nice to me and gave me great service."
Pros: "Economy class is super cramped. One of the flight attendants was unpleasant."
Pros: "Staff seemed efficient"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats, long delay (due to weather)"
Pros: "They accommodated my 6 hour layover by reducing it to 2!! Got me home 4hrs earlier. So grateful."
Cons: "Gate attendant accused me of trying to get "free extra baggage" when I simply asked whether there would be gate-checking on this particular flight."
Pros: "The flight took off and landed on time."
Cons: "When I went to the gate in Houston to get my boarding pass for my second leg, the lady at the gate counter yelled at me because I didn't know my seat assignment even though I had already explained that I didn't know because I didn't have a boarding pass. On my original booking, I had chosen my seat to be a window, but when they rebooked me they put me in a middle seat even though there was a completely empty row in front of me. Then, to top everything off, they forced me me check my rollerboard carry-on because they said there was no more room on the plane, but when I got on I could see multiple spaces were still available. Another passenger and I were left to wait nearly 5 minutes on the jetway while the gate counter rep went to print our checked luggage tags. I asked the stewardess why I had to check mine even though there was plenty of space, and she said "it's hard to tell sometimes how much room we're going to have left." She also didn't offer any apology. All in all it was a terrible experience. I had to wait unnecessarily at various points of the travel process, had to endure a layover that was more than double what I had planned for, was forced to check my carry-on at the gate, and worst of all I missed a really important meeting. United obviously does not care at all about economy customers. Don't trust this airline! Book on Southwest or JetBlue - they actually care about customer retention!"
Pros: "First class was fine - nothing too special"
Cons: "delay too long"
Pros: "The hospitality of the crew."
Cons: "The amount of snacks that were served."
Pros: "Bigger plane and fast flight"
Cons: "Nothing. It was great"
Pros: "friendly crew. speedy, reliable flight"
Cons: "insufficient overhead storage. could not accommodate the one carry-on and one personal item room for all passengers."
Pros: "The plane was exceptionally nice,"
Cons: "Although I purchased my ticket more than four months prior, due to some complication or miscommunication between SAS and US Air, my seat had been filled and someone had to be "bought off the plane" with a voucher and better seat. If someone wouldn't have taken the offer, I would have missed all of my flight waiting on a new connection."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 3 times!"
Pros: "Short flight , every thing was good f"
Cons: "Flight was likeable short flight"
Cons: "Small glasses of water were offered very infrequently. Needed much much more"
Cons: "I paid the 25.00 for my small bag which could have easily been a carry on, but I had a purse and small carry bag. I felt that WAY too many folks had backpack and two small carry ones, but by bringing them to the gate - the announcement was made its a full flight so you can check your bag for FREE! Next time, I will not follow the rules and just simply check at gate?? That is message loud and clear from your gate folks."
Pros: "Nice Flight Crew"
Cons: "There was no leg room what so ever! I am 6 foot tall and around 275 pounds. The seats were made for children, not made for an adult. My seat was so uncomfortable my legs actually went numb, mainly for the fact that I couldn’t move because of how tight the seats were. I have flown many times and this was by far the most uncomfortable flight ever! I will never fly again if this is how planes are going to be."
Pros: "The costumer service at Denver international airport was great."
Cons: "The aircraft is uncomfortable for nearly all but the most petite of patrons."
Pros: "Flights were on time."
Cons: "Too many gate changes."
Cons: "no food or entertainment."
Pros: "The plane was slightly cramped, not as bad as my previous flight. Decent selection of adult beverages."
Cons: "Plane was present, crew was late by 2.5 hours, delayed my flight. I was scheduled to arrive around 2300, didn't get home until close to 0200. No wifi at all. I have always flown United, this was the worst experience thus far. We should be offered some type of discount for a future flight or a refund for this flight."
Pros: "The whole experience was great, plenty of room in the seats and leg room. Fun flight"
Cons: "It was all good . Can't say the same for the flight from Huston to Seattle"
Pros: "After having worked Monday 10 am until 7 pm AND then10 pm to4 am i was exhausted boarding a 6:50 am flight. Needless to say i was asleep before we left the runway. No-one bothered me, and I slept the entire flight. Didn't wake up until we landed in Newark and the tires hit the runway. Thanks United!! I'll def be utilizing your airlines again!!"
Pros: "On time!!"
Pros: "It was an overall good experience. I was flying home because of an emergency. I was able to get my preferred seat (at no extra cost) and the crew was very friendly."
Pros: "Nice staff"
Cons: "Horrible landing. They lost my luggage. Which I think my fees should be returned since I had to wait until 8 at night to receive it"
Pros: "Met a cute girl!"
Pros: "Plane was very clean and seats were comfy"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and no snacks were handed out."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "RDU to EWR was fine, but the return flight was way oversold, and we didn't even get seat assignments until it was time to board. I purchased our tickets months ago, checked in 24 hrs before, and did not check bags, but we still had to stand online and keep reminding the gate agents that we did not have seats and that my three year-old had a car seat that needed to go in a window seat. Once on board, the first clas flight attendant was awesome! She helped us fix a seating nightmare (agent had given my 3 y/o a seat by himself) and came back to coach during the flight to give my son some wings and to just check on us. She and our safe arrival are the only aspects of the entire experience that deserve any stars whatsoever."
Pros: "Everything was on time and adequate. That seems to be the standard for a great flight these days."
Cons: "No pretzels or peanuts."
Cons: "A lady on the plane threw up 5 plus times. The vomet got me and other passengers. The flight crew did not clean it up and was very rude. We I complained I was told " Who do I think I am" I responded I am a paying passenger. I am very disappointed in United the way this matter was handled and the nonprofessional attitude of the flight crew. This is a very concerning due to the unsanitary and health risks involved. United should look into this ."
Cons: "no food< no entertainment, crying babies, why can some flights be for adults only?"
Pros: "The employees were incredibly cheerful and accommodating!"
Pros: "Smooth Flight"
Cons: "No movies nor Internet"
Pros: "It was a short flight."
Pros: "Flight attendants were amazing !"
Cons: "Seats weren't very comfortable"
Pros: "Got lucky - had a row to myself (THAT hasn't happened in years). Otherwise this would have been a very different experience due to unbelivably cramped seating. I will not fly on flights using this plane again. Streaming free movies is a nice perk."
Cons: "3 1/2 hour flight through lunch hour. No food. Not even a pretzel."
Pros: "The plane was safe."
Cons: "Most everything."
Cons: "My connecting flight was cancelled so they rebooked me on a flight that was to leave 11 hours later. They expected me to sit in Dulles for 11 hours. Ridiculous ....especially that there were other flights earlier."
Pros: "The crew. There is not way in this survey to say "does not apply". There was no food or entertainment so rating it is misleading."
Cons: "The very small seats. They require you to have your body rubbing against another person for hours. It is very unsettling."
Cons: "Was late on the flight there and the flight back. Pilot messed up the landing. Price was good and that's it."
Pros: "I finally got to my destination 3 1/2 hours late."
Cons: "I lost my car rental and had to spend a whole night in the airport."
Pros: "Nothing. Not even the refund compensated for the lost time and additional expenses incurred from Frontier"
Cons: "6 hour delay. Didn't board plane and still lost our bag"
Pros: "Fare, boarding, seat selection, ease of purchase."
Cons: "On my first leg of my round trip flight free refreshments were offered. On my return flight they were not and was told everything beside water only was available for purchase. It also seemed a bit unsafe for during the course of the short 2:15 hr flight between Chicago and Austin for the Pilots to leave the cockpit with the only things standing between someone rushing the cockpit when the door is opened are a drink cart and an older female flight attendant."
Pros: "Landing was good"
Cons: "Surprise cost of carry on bags Flight attendents reguests over and over to clean areah"
Pros: "The fares are unbeatable"
Cons: "Consistently late."
Pros: "See aforementioned."
Cons: "Wish that you cou;d use Apple Pay or at least a credit card to purchase snacks/drinks, etc."
Cons: "I contacted Frontier about a week before my flight to let them know my friend I was flying to visit had to make an emergency trip to see her father who was dying of liver failure. On the first attempt I was notified that only immediate family members were would be an excuse but that I could try to request through a different faucet of emergency circumstances. I put through another request and was never contacted. I did not fly to Salt Lake but I was still charged even though they could very well have sold my seat to another person and made double the money for the seat. I am very disappointed with the service I received from Frontier."
Cons: "First off, it's ridiculous that after buying a ticket aboard Frontier online, nothing was mentioned before hand about purchasing a seat!!!! - really, what was the ticket supposed to cover. Then, large charges for a small carry-on and also a checked bag that I did online. Then worse, aboard the plane, I discovered that all cokes, etc. and peanuts, etc. had to be purchased. You talk about cheap and greedy. The flight back from Denver was even worse as it was running almost an hour and a half behind, then they switched gates, and after finally boarding at the other gate, we sat at the boarding gate for over an hour, with very little contact or explanation from the crew, not even offering passengers a drink of water."
Cons: "Everything. Maintenance issue. Debording in Austin. Seat confusion. Never again!"
Pros: "we had a sudden storm which required us to hold for over an hour before landing. Crew was very professional and pilot excellent to get us down after an hour and a half delay."
Pros: "We got there safe and sound."
Cons: "The gates were changed almost at the last minute and we didn't hear any announcements. A few passengers we're almost late for boarding. I found out because some lady came by and asked if this was the flight to some where else. That's how I found out the gates were changed. I told the rep to make sure that they make the announcement so everyone knows of the changes. I could of got on the wrong plane and missed my flight."
Pros: "Courtesy& efficiency of the crew"
Pros: "The crew was fantastic especially on the way to Las Vegas!"
Cons: "Cramped for space, and you had to pay for any and every beverage you got---even water. Also NO free snacks like peanuts."
Pros: "The flight was fast and straight forward."
Cons: "Paying for a carry on Seats do not recline No complimentary beverages Flight was delayed and we rarely received updates I understand that you charge for everything in order to offer better prices, but by the time the customer pays to bring on luggage, we are paying the same price as an airline that allows baggage for free with inclusive drinks, snacks and seats that recline."
Pros: "Did not have food"
Pros: "The flight was nonstop so that was good. Got me back and forth, that was good. Seems like a cheap airline that has cut expenses every which way. Carryon baggage fee, food and drink cost, seats don't recline and are too narrow."
Pros: "Charging for a carry on bag at the last minute when I was checking in was unprofessional. It didn't leave me with an option to choose and it was misleading. I will not be flying frontier again. Congrats on being sneaky and losing another customer. Also the pilot was awful."
Cons: "At no point was there any info telling us about carry on bag charges. This added a 150 unexpected expense to our trip just for carry ons. Would have chosen a different flight of I would have known. Will never fly frontier airlines again. And will tell everyone I know that is planning on traveling what a terrible experience we had with them."
Pros: "After flying Frontier Airlines for the first time with my 4 year old daughter, I was pleasantly surprised with my entire experience. The staff was very friendly and helpful at the gates, the flight attendants were amazing and both of my flights arrived earlier than expected!!! I will fly Frontier whenever possible!!"
Cons: "No airline miles for flying with this carrier, but for the price of my tickets and for the savings it didn't matter to me anyways!"
Pros: "Flight was amazing! I could not tell when we took off or when we landed! Smooth Flight! Awseome flight crew!"
Cons: "I was Excited about the cost of the flight! ($375.00) However, I was very disappointed about being charged for baggage(carry on and checkin $65 one way total of $130.00) and beverages (sodas and juice). Ummm? Had I known about all the fine print I probably would have gone with a different airline atleast I would have not been caught off guard after booking the flight."
Cons: "-Crew was non-existent and when present was robotic -There was no food of any sort -There was no entertainment of any sort -Boarding was late -Seats were EXTREMELY uncomfortable. Will not fly this airline again even if I have to pay more -Baggage pricing was exorbitant"
Pros: "The crew was extremely nice. The plane seemed clean."
Cons: "The seats were tight. Not much leg room. Very expensive to check luggage, $40!"
Pros: "It was cheap if you don't have any bags."
Cons: "Very old airplane, if you have any carry-on you'll have to pay $45, the crew wasn't really that friendly, the plane just felt old, like the oldest plane I've ever been on. It didn't take turbulence well, so we were getting knocked around the entire flight. They were offering 'free water" as if it were some big favor."
Cons: "Frontier's policy of paying for carry on or checked stinks! When I looked around at the amount of people waiting at the baggage carousel, they are making a bunch of money from that policy! Their website is terrible to negotiate when trying to pay for that bag, or choose seats. Customers are offered beverages, as you might guess there is a fee attached to that- $1.99 for a can of coke, really? Frontier will never be my first choice with this type of baggage policy. They made a lovely announcement at the end of the flight about expanding their fleet of planes, etc. Apparently from reading the reviews others have the same complaint, anyone @ Frontier, listening or reading these?"
Cons: "My flight was cancelled and Frontier refused to put me on another flight as they said I was a no-show. I sat at the airport almost 3 hours before my flight which was at 12:45 am 11/21/15. Because it was past Mid-night it did not show on their computer system till next day and so they said they could not see it even though I had a printed boarding pass and was checked in, this caused me another ticket, hotel, extra parking, and dog care. Almost $600 extra. I will never use this airline again. No telling how many other passengers they did this to."
Pros: "Everyone was polite and The airplane was clean. Even though we were very late every member on staff was kind, patient, and happy."
Cons: "We were about 1 1/2 hours off of it original departure time. No one explained a thing to the passengers. We were delayed and when we finally got on the plane we waited a whole hour to take off. There was no information passed to us about how long it would take and our potential wait time. When it is time to check in, we had to purchase our seats. No where, when we bought tickets for this flight, did it say we had to pay extra money to actually sit on the flight."
Cons: "I arrived 40 minutes before my departure time due to a personal issue... The attendant at the check in desk wasted more of my time by uncertainly fumbling about and spending 5 minutes behind a closed door. They could only offer another flight 2 days later and at an additional cost. During the time they wasted of mine, I could have made it through security and to my boarding gate. F--- for customer service. I went across the terminal to the United Airlines desk and got on a flight last minute at practically the same cost as Frontier, the corner cutting overbooking "cheap" airline."
Pros: "Boarding was fabulously easy."
Cons: "I did not know during booking about the carry-on fee or the seat fee (!!!! though I later learned that if you didn't select a fee for a seat they would assign you whatever was left, not that that is appealing). You had to pay for everything except water. There was no in-flight entertainment at all. Trays were tiny. I will never fly this airlines again."
Pros: "6 hour delay and frontier couldn't even offer us free snacks or drinks!! Come on! That's awful customer service! Will never fly frontier again!!!!!!!"
Pros: "Low fare initially, but gouged by all the extra fees--carry on luggage, seat choice, even beverages weren't complimentary"
Cons: "No personal touch. All very formal and impersonal. Uncomfortable flight."
Pros: "Hated it, they dinged me an extra 60 bucks at checking for my bags, staff were unhappy people. Most uncomfortable ride. All around worst flight I've had."
Cons: "Worst flight ever"
Pros: "The flight was great,being that it was my first time fying."
Cons: "The restrooms have absolutely no elbow room, nor there was not enough space for anything, especially for a three hour flight from RDU-DEN"
Cons: "I went to check in for Frontier flight # 1138, Las Vegas to Austin, TX. The woman at the ticket counter checked me in for the flight the following day. Now I'm stuck here without my bag for another day."
Cons: "Horrible customer service. Left my glasses on flight and never got them back, even though I submitted a lost and found ticket. Never got a reply back, and the airline rep at the airport was short and rude when I went to ask if there was any way I could go back and retrieve them as it had been just minutes since we left the plane or at least call and ask someone to look. The attendants probably just throw everything away. Never got an email back about the lost glasses. The seats were horribly uncomfortable, they charge out the wazoo for drinks and they trick you into thinking you need to pay for carry-on bags! Seriously the stupidest airline I've had to deal with in a long time. The prices for the flights were reasonable til we had to deal with all that stupidity. Not worth it. Go with American or United for good reasonable flights instead."
Cons: "I always get the middle seat eventhiugh i check in early. It is so uncomfortable! Seats are thinner and there are no head rest."
Cons: "I couldn't make my flight, called 3 weeks before flight and what they offered me in return for a cancellation was basically useless,"
Pros: "The physical flight was fine"
Cons: "Where do I begin? This airline is obviously attempting to maximize their profits but so much at the expense of passengers. There is no comfort in flying in an upright position for many hours. In fact, sitting aboard this flight felt like torture. I will never if at all possible fly on this airline again. I will recommend to my friends that they pay a bit extra to fly another airline. I mean they've all cut corners but Frontier has gone the extra mile in putting profits over any decent airline accommodation. I sincerely hope you guys go out of business."
Pros: "Crew and ground staff were very translucent about the delay issues. Wish I knew about the delays earlier, but perhaps they thought that it would be solved before original departure time. Though the seats are very minimal, they were comfortable. Maybe some of the other "barebones": airlines could take a look at these seats, In survey above........What entertainment??? What food????"
Cons: "The Frontier computer crashed causing a delay. Seats were tight. Would like some type of magazine or in flight entertainment even for an additional charge."
Pros: "It was less expensive, true"
Cons: "Seat felt like a folding chair, with a silly tiny tray and didn't recline. No jack for earphones or any attempt at music or media offered. Are you serious that you have to pay to reserve a seat, pay to carry a bag on and pay to get a water or drink?"
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "No comfort on the plane. The rules for carry one. Yes, the rates are cheap, but Frontier makes up for it in the charging of the bags! Beware of hidden fees."
Cons: "I was late for my 6:25 flight because of a ridiculously long security line. By the time I reached the gate the plane had already left and the woman gave me no help and very little information."
Pros: "Seats are little roomy"
Cons: "Seats were super uncomfortable and you had to pay for the drinks.... barely slept."
Cons: "Check in Price"
Pros: "Didn't crash. Flight crew was friendly and responsive."
Cons: "Checked baggage fee. Carry-on baggage fee. No in-flight entertainment. Extremely over-priced food/drinks. The seat-back tray-table was broken off and missing. One of the lavatories was out of commission. Will not fly Frontier again."
Cons: "I didn't like that Frontier has extra fees on top of the posted ticket price. It had extra fees for baggage and the prices changed whether you did check in online or at the gate, and then an extra seat fee and drink fees, etc. As it turns out, I could have gone another airline cheaper with no extra fees. I will not book with them again."
Cons: "the price for the trip does not include that you have to pay for Carry-on, which is an odd expense to passengers. Especially for shorter trips with the round trip the carry on charge would equal up to at least $60. Which would equal to another airline who is comparatively better especially because those airlines aren't worrying about charging the customers for every single thing. Additionally, Frontier isn't a participant of the TS-Pre Check program, which Frontier should advertise."
Cons: "They couldn't rebook me until after my daughters wedding was over the next night. I missed my daughters wedding. They didn't work with me."
Pros: "The cost"
Cons: "The seats they don't have much room or move at all"
Cons: "The Seats are Hard and narrow and don't lean back. (I know... It's an economy flight and you get what you paid for.)"
Pros: "Easy booking and website"
Cons: "A lot of people were out of seats during plane travel to stand around and chat which made it uncomfortable having people hover over me when I was trying to sleep"
Pros: "Friendly crew. Friendly passengers!"
Cons: "Spirit is different. I wasnt aware what i was booking. Now i know: 52 bucks for a checked bag! Food and drinks are extra- even water! No movies Uncomfortable seats."
Cons: "I was not given anything to drink"
Pros: "The price but it wasn't worth it."
Cons: "The cramped seating."
Pros: "Nothing. It's a horrible airline. Never again will I fly Spirit."
Cons: "Two cancelled flights in one day. 27 hrs of travel"
Pros: "Low price, clean plane and arrived safely."
Cons: "40 pound limit of. Bag I paid $50 for and 41 pounds means another $30. No drink or peanuts."
Pros: "I was kept in line until it was too late to allow me to get a boarding pass. The 3 groups of travelers before me took an unusually long time as they could not understand why they were not allowed to get boarding passes. The CS Manager did direct me to an airline that I was able to buy full price ticket from."
Cons: "The same excuse was given to every traveler that was in the line with me. I listened to it explained to at least 10 travelers that day. Since that time, I have yet to hear any positive feedback from anyone that travels frequently. You seem to pray on people that do not travel often. The ticket that was purchased for this fight was bought by my wife. She was trying to do me a favor. Maybe some that actually cares about your reputation and would like to see your airlines succeed over time will contact me in an attempt to change my opinion. I can be contacted at email@example.com"
Pros: "There is nothing to note that I liked about this airline."
Cons: "If you any sense, you'll never fly on this airline. I have had 4 or 4 flights end up being the worst flights ever. It is worth the extra money to fly on another airline."
Cons: "We didn't take off on time. this is so common with spirit airlines"
Pros: "Staff was super friendly and helpful!"
Pros: "I liked that they let military board early whether they were in uniform or not...flight attendants were friendly"
Cons: "I didn't like that the seats were so thin and they didn't reclin at all, I barely even had space to move and get comfortable. The tickets were cheap but they made up for the cheap price with baggage prices, they charges for every bag even the carry-ons."
Pros: "Ease of boarding. Departure and arrival on time. Friendly attendants."
Cons: "Really small under the seat space and uncomfortable seats."
Pros: "Gets you from point A to point B at a reasonable price!"
Cons: "It was ridiculous how I had to pay 55.00 for my carry on to my destination and BACK. Did NOT expect that. So 110.00 total. Felt like I had to buy my carry one it's own personal ticket to fly with me as if it was another person that u had to put in a little storage over my head."
Cons: "Actually the allowance for baggage is too much. I am living in KSA from about 20 years. I have visited many countries in Europe. Including Middle East and Asia. I have never given such a huge amount for baggage. It makes very senseless to charge for baggages because if your are providing us the service for transportation, than baggages is must with anyone travelling, obviously. In other words, because its a must for anyone travelling, you are simply taking advantage. Anyhow the over all service was quite impressive and its been one of my best lifetime travel. Hope to travel again from your airline and see any changes in the baggageing allowances. Thankyou soo much. Have a nice day."
Pros: "Flight was on time and perfect landing!"
Cons: "Too many charges overall for the bags #ridiculous"
Pros: "Flight was on time. Boarded fairly quickly and was smooth. The staff was fine and friendly."
Cons: "The plane(at least my seat) was dirty. There were what seemed to be good smears on the window and something smeared inside of the pocket under the tray table."
Pros: "Spirit has a reputation for being late or delayed due to something. We were delayed one hour. Did not get home until after midnight."
Pros: "The aircrew was friendly"
Cons: "expensive snacks"
Pros: "Crew members were nice. Quiet landing."
Cons: "Carry on baggage size is smaller than usual which makes checked baggage almost mandatory at a 50 dol per piece rate."
Pros: "I got there safely"
Cons: "Everything. It was NOT cheaper than other airlines at all! Having to pay for each individual thing is ridiculous. While boarding the employee was not audible and I could not get a space for by bag (WHICH I PAID FOR) above my seat because people had put their "personal" items there. The crew was not pleasant and looked like a mess and when we landed one looked like she just woke up herself. I will never recommend this airline is horrible. I never leave bad reviews, this is my first."
Pros: "The steward's patter at the beginning of the flight was exceptionally well delivered."
Pros: "The actual flight was good. For the most part, the flight attendants were good."
Cons: "I waited about 30 minutes to drop off my (prepaid) bag, although there were only 12 people in front of me on my initial flight. It took over 1 1/2 hours to drop off my prepaid bag and get a printed boarding pass on my return flight. Customer service is really awful."
Pros: "Crew is very friendly!!"
Cons: "Charging on a bag 52~55 $ was terrible, even if it is your policy. I will not use your flight. It is because I thought that your flight is cheaper than other companies, but it was not cheaper actually. So I feel that I was deceived. And the counter employees (in LAX) seemed that they laughed on my poor English. employee"
Pros: "I was charged by Spirit $100 per carry on, there was no obvious note or warning for the charge when I checked in on line. I felt that I had been robbed $400 By spirit. The the service at the Oakland airport was terrible, the people working at the Spirit gate had very bad attitude, one of them was called Lavinia, worker ID 34448, and her coworker was horrible too, unfortunately I didn't get her name. I will not book spirit anymore."
Cons: "Nothing I liked about Spirit, it is the worst airline."
Pros: "The crew and boarding was fine, the plane was clean and looked in good condition."
Cons: "The seats were cramped! the seat in front of me was literally 12 inches from my face. You are packed in like sardines, can't move, very uncomfortable. When I put my tray down it hit my stomach. Don't expect food or drink, it all cost money. The pilot was selling stuff too before landing kinda ridiculous. Baggage all cost money on top of the flight. It seems that they really try to nickel and dime you."
Pros: "Do yourself a favor and never fly Spirit Airlines unless you have a lot of time, no bags, extremely patient (like Jesus patient) and you're never hungry. I'm basically describing a corpse because that's what it would take to enjoy flying Spirit."
Cons: "The plane was delayed 6 hours (something about their system having issues and pilots being overbooked). We weren't given an explanation till after we finally got on the plane. We were offered a free soda or water as compensation. Horrible!"
Cons: "If there's anything consumers hate it's extra fees. And Spirit wins the prize with piling on extra fees. This is an airline I will absolutely never choose again because of their hidden and deceiving fees they charge once you've booked your ticket. It's a complete scam airline. Stay away!!!!! Oh and the seats were awful!!! New plane with the least expensive interior."
Pros: "The aircraft was new and up to date. One of the flight attendants was very rude to you customers. Charging for WATER is reprehensible. Shame on your management for even considering that."
Pros: "Was randomly assigned to business class"
Cons: "Bumpy and scary ride. Crew won't let you go to the bathroom when sitbelt sign is on, and it is always on. $52 to check a bag, no complementary snack or beverage. Crew is rude."
Pros: "The flight crew definitely makes a difference, was overall happy!"
Pros: "The flight was fine, on time, and comfortable."
Cons: "I didn't like this survey because it didn't let me do NA. The crew did their safety presentation like all other flights I have been on. Then I fell asleep. There was no food or drink for me and I don't remember what I dreamed so there was no entertainment. Survey 101: Never assume there has to be an answer."
Pros: "late as usual"
Pros: "The price of the ticket"
Cons: "My luggage was sent on another airline and another city. When I initially asked the desk attendent in Houston for help, she literally said "No". Spirit overall has poor customer service but this shocked me. Although Olivia who worked that same evening was amazing. I've been flying for 25 years and had never had an issue with any of the dozens of airlines I've been on even more budget airlines than spirit. This is my second time flying Spirit and I will NEVER make the same mistake again."
Pros: "I don't like that I had to pay for a carry on. It wasn't clear enough to me online to know that prior to flying so I had to pay full price for a carry on. I had to have. Printed ticket. I was not able to do it electronically. That was not clear either. At the end of the day I could have flown a better airline for a slightly higher cost without all the hassle. I will not fly spirit again."
Pros: "The girl that helped us with our suitcases at boarding time was nice and considerate. The airplane staff was pleasant and had a smile on their face. They were also very accommodating."
Pros: "Crew was alright but wanted to charge me for a cup of water to take my medications with."
Cons: "The rows are crammed too close together. There was not enough room for my legs while sitting down, as my knees were jammed into the seat in front of me."
Cons: "I call Spirit the "gotcha" airline. If you don't plan ahead, this airline will drain you of your funds. Basically, robbery without a gun. Shameful the way your customers are charged for the fees you apply. I now join the ranks of one and done with Spirit. Learned my lesson. Never again! NEVER!"
Cons: "They will flout their own policies in order to fleece passengers for extra monies you thought you saved on the cheap air fares. You have been warned, if you have had a bad experience, please prevent others from having one by completing one of these surveys."
Pros: "Departed and arrived on time. Price!!!"
Cons: "Nothing really."
Cons: "No drink service and poor food selection"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Paying for drinks even water"
Pros: "I got email updates about flight departure times, so that was nice."
Pros: "Staff was professional and very friendly."
Pros: "Flight attendants had a great sense of humor."
Cons: "Flight was delayed, luggage is $40 a pop!"
Pros: "Would not use kayak again"
Cons: "Would not fly Spirit again"
