Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Flight was broken we had to get off. I had to book a hotel room was so tired"
Cons: "We are stranded in Miami due to another passengers medical needs. That delay caused us to miss our Connecting flight. We are now unable to get to Belize until Friday and the best they will offer is a coupon for like $30 off a crappy hotel. Next time I’ll lsy more for delta’s far superior service"
Pros: "Crew on board are great."
Cons: "American keeps canceling and changing schedules. They cancelled flight section and took it out of my itinerary. Then took over 3 calls and 2 hours on hold to fix."
Pros: "I would like that the seats were not so small I got 2 people with overweight and I was very uncomfortable the trip"
Cons: "in all the flight you did not have internet WiFi"
Pros: "The movie selection was great!"
Pros: "The flight itself was uneventful, which is what you want from a flight. Once the connection was made the next day, the flight segment went perfectly."
Cons: "Flight was over 2 hours late leaving Lima, so many people missed connections in Miami, NOBODY from LATAM was at the gate to assist with how to make new connections or how to get local accommodations for the night. This was a customer service fail. American is no better. They rescheduled the flight at no cost, but then sent you back to LATAM for help with the overnight. If we buy tickets from your website and you own the process, you should be more helpful when there are problems. The back-and-forth was frustrating. Lima airport takes a long time to go through all the checkpoints. Two hours does not give enough time. There are at least four long lines that have to be endured. This process could use some streamlining."
Pros: "Comfort on board, entertainment system"
Cons: "Older plane than on the way to Paris, did not like so much the food (except main course)"
Cons: "Seats were too narrow and distance between sets is too small"
Pros: "The crew member was great."
Pros: "Niçoise salad was great. Had plenty of room in priority with pillow/blanket/headphones etc provided"
Pros: "Not using kayak"
Cons: "Kayak booked me the worst itinerary in the history of air travel!"
Pros: "Perfect from start to finish"
Pros: "I had to buy new clothes after lost bag and since bag had been lost twice during my trip, I was reluctant to check the bag. It was of size to cram into my carry on so I did that, but American staff demonstrated concern, had a sense of humor and helped me get a comfortable seat to sort of take some of the sting away. All that was great of them I was aware of being in an upgraded seat. No complaints, but it stung a little because I was deeply aware of the reinforcement of class. The small, extra comforts were wonderful and I wish everyone had them while risking their lives together over the ocean - especially the extra room At times, on the way over I felt a claustrophobic panic. But to stay positive, they were kiind, sympathetic, funny, sweet. I appreciate them."
Cons: "3 hours delay, NOT entertainment at all, this is ridiculous! The dinner was regular, but breakfast was terrible."
Pros: "On time. Was able to sleep through much of what was likely an annoying flight because there was no personal entertainment--the tiny screens overhead would have been impossible to see and they were showing a movie that was lame. It seemed anachronistic."
Cons: "At the Lima gate they made each passenger open their carryon and submit to a secondary inspection to confiscate all water we bought past security. No warning was given about this. I had paid airport prices for water to bring onto the plane and then had to surrender it at the gate. Of course in economy class they will not give you water or attention until you are at cruising altitude. More than one flight attendant did not smile and one was actually rude in spite of my attempts to be kind and smile. Except for one friendly person at check-in kiosk, bad service overall. They do not have personal entertainment systems, and it was like going back in time with the tiny screens you cannot see, playing a movie you either watch it or not."
Cons: "My flight from SFO to Miami was delayed so I missed my connection to Rio and now I’m NYC on my birthday instead of my final destination. The flight status was changed 7 times. And AA said they would get my bag off but they did not and now I have to wait at JFK and hope it got rerouted here. And if it didn’t to hope it can on another flight before I hopefully actually get on a flight for Rio. Nobody has comped me for losing a day in Rio and for my hotel room. And this has been the worst flight exeperience or my life which unfortunately landed on my birthday. One I’ll remember in a sad and bad way. American Airlines refused to compensate me because I got my tickets via Kayak and I haven’t been able to find a number to complain to a Kayak agent whom I sure would say I had to contact American Airlines and nobody would help or take responsilvitu for this disaster."
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: "Crew was great. No electrical outlets, wntertainment was mediocre. This was an old 747 that needs an update."
Pros: "nothing, didn't happen"

Cons: "All of abo e, many delays, no usb plug or refuse to show me, charge for luggage, no headphone."
Cons: "I booked the flight with Kayak and it showed the airline as Finnair, the flight was actually with American, no complains about it. The issue was that Kayak did not update me with the Flight number for American Airlines and kept sending me information about the flight with Finnair which was not going to actually take place. I had to actually call American and spend time with a Representative providing all the data to be able to get my American Airlines flight booking code so I could check in online. American as always was great! Shame on Kayak!"
Pros: "Smooth ride."
Cons: "Waited on gate agents for more than 20 mins from 1.39 pm to 2.00 pm And this was a scheduled flight. This is sloppiness."

Cons: "In flight entertainment was below expectations"
Cons: "Delay No direction help for the gate Bad seats"
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: "Permiten facturar el equipaje de mano ya que el vuelo suele ir bastante lleno."
Cons: "No hay tolerancia con los kilos facturados. El equipaje pesaba 51 libras y me hicieron quitar peso para después aceptar que facture ena puerta de embarque."
Cons: "When we arrived at AirPort El Dorado, we discovered that our flight was cancelled/has been changed without warning us! They scheduled us a new flight with Vianca and Iberia: Bogotá-Madrid + Madrid-Brussels. My partner and I could not sit together on any of these flights! 1 of 10 hours and of 2 hours! I would NOT recommend AA to anyone! This was full responsability of AA!"
Cons: "Flight leaving Miami delayed 1.5 hrs Flight leaving London delayed 3hrs"
Cons: "my luggage was lost between Dallas and St petersburg russia and I waited 5 days to receive it"
Cons: "For an airline that has been around as long as they have, their customer service is lacking signicantly. Communication was lacking to the passengers. As far as helpful, I cannot say they I witnessed anyone being helpful or trying to make a pleasant experience. The flight attendants seemed lacking in knowledge, friendliness, consideration, or empathy."
Cons: "Delay of flight do to routing maintenance has cost me a overnight in Miami. sleep only 4 hrs that day and the lost of one logged. AA employees in MIA the worst ever."
Pros: "Denver USO facility"
Pros: "Flight was on time. Great service from the ground staff to the in flight crew."
Cons: "No movies, no headphones, no wet wipes. Not your fault, but i missed my connections."
Pros: "Best was nice plane, great seats, and efficient crew."
Cons: "Worst was plane left late, then delayed on tarmac for "passenger count". This made me late for connecting flight and made me lose luggage."
Pros: "Entertainment was good but the system had to be rebooted two times as it was getting stuck."
Cons: "crew was more about relaxing themselves vs. worried about passengers. Wrong priorities! They ran out of food choice by the time they got to our seating area which was at half point of the plane!"
Cons: "I was made to check my carry on in a rush because there wasn't enough space supposedly. I was told my bag would be transferred all the way to bogota. When I got on the plane I saw plenty of space AND when I got to Bogota my bag wasn't there. My carry on had my most important belongings for in case other luggage was lost. It's not faire that other passengers get to carry on suitcases and a personal item and I can not being my small backpack. It's very inconvenient since my rain gear, my shoes and my Phone chargers are in that bag."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and attentive. First class food offerings were good for a domestic flight."
Cons: "Entertainment system on this A330 did not work for the entire flight."
Pros: "Flight was on time! Boarding and deplaning was excellent."
Cons: "Food service was below standards for any airline! Sandwiches were stale and salad was soggy. Very disappointing."
Pros: "Originally on American. They couldn't get a door to shut so moved me to British airways. Which is much nicer anyways, so no complaints there, however, American decided they would still deliver my luggage. 24 hrs after I land, nobody knows where it is."
Pros: "We were assigned seat numbers 25a and 25B. When we got to our seats the seats were taken out to be replaced but due to the lack of mid communication with the internal staffs and the ! What??? She said there wasn't any other seats to assign us on the coach level. Then talked to the supervisor and I asked her what if if we upgrade. Then she came back and said it will cost us an additional 7700 euros to seat in the first class yes I do understand her point and told her to forget it. Then another supervisor who was a Spanish lady said to me that sorry the maintenance is falling behind due to lack of comnication and promised that our seats will be fixed soon but she said in the meantime we could find any other seats that are single and sit until ours is ready. Well the two other seats that were available at that was a seat next to the kitchen and bathroom and that also had the seats were taken out. We were very stressed and felt like we were not treated professionally. Anyway we finally got our seats back and the rest was better."
Cons: "We were assigned seat numbers 25a and 25B. When we got to our seats the seats were taken out to be replaced but due to the lack of mid communication with the internal staffs and the maintenance the seats were not replaced on time and when we boarded my husband and u had to stand on the side for at least 20 mins. Then had to talk to the supervisor and and the tall dark lady told me if I not happy we can get off the plane and get on the next one! What??? She said there wasn't any other seats to assign us on the coach level. Then talked to the supervisor and I asked her what if if we upgrade. Then she came back and said it will cost us an additional 7700 euros to seat in the first class yes I do understand her point and told her to forget it. Then another supervisor who was a Spanish lady said to me that sorry the maintenance is falling behind due to lack of comnication and promised that our seats will be fixed soon but she said in the meantime we could find any other seats that are single and sit until ours is ready. Well the two other seats that were available at that was a seat next to the kitchen and bathroom and that also had the seats were taken out. We were very stressed and felt like we were not treated professionally. Anyway we finally got our seats back and the rest was better."
Cons: "Everything went to plan no delays, or drama."
Pros: "The schedulle was acomplish in each flight"
Cons: "The flight landed about 30 minutes early. We spent one hour on the tarmac waiting for a gate, resulting in us being late .. compromising many with tight connections."
Cons: "The boarding is a joke. They do not tell you which group is boarding and then turn you away if you are not in the correct group. I sat back and watched as the mob tried to board asking each other which group was boarding which no one knew. When I got up to board I asked and was told, "I held up two fingers". Personally I think using the intercom would work much better. I was thinking this was just a one time deal, however they handled it the same way on the return flight. This was the first time I used American, so I do not know if this is their standard policy, but this issue and a long list of others will make me think twice before I use them again."
Pros: "Good crew, left on-time and arrived early, clean aircraft and bathrooms."
Cons: "Being stuffed in like sardines. But, what can one do without paying to upgrade?"
Pros: "The crew was amazing and extremely professional. My seat was very comfortable. The food was very good and the portion size exceeded my expectations."

Cons: "The breakfast could have been more substantial than just a muffin. But everything else was very good!"
Pros: "Quick and smooth"
Cons: "Didn’t get bags transferred from United flight from Washington DC to the flight from Munchen to Athens. We made it to gate just in time. Bags did not. Maybe there is some way to increase layover time On this international flight. Thanks"
Pros: "Economy Plus was well worth the small up charge."
Cons: "Took a long time to remove your dishes after the meal; never offered a mid flight snack."
Pros: "AlwYs on time"
Pros: "I try to fly with Lufthansa every time I travel to Turkey. They never fail to be great! Their service is very good. Their airplanes always seem to be new or kept up very well."
Pros: "The counter clerks in the airport were not friendly. But the inflight attendants and service was great."
Cons: "The counter staff were grumpy from the minute they arrived at the service gate desk."
Cons: "We were asked to be at the airport 8hrs ahead of time, so we arrived 3am. United desk workers arrived at 4am."
Pros: "Everything ran smoothly and crew was very nice."
Pros: "Great flight attendants. Nice plane. Left early."
Pros: "Boarding was smooth, flight was in time."
Cons: "Entertainment cost $5.99 per seat .. which is high."
Pros: "Economy class is super cramped. One of the flight attendants was unpleasant."
Pros: "It was spacious"
Cons: "When the captain talks on the radio it is super loud and when the flight attendant talked you could not hear what they were saying"

Pros: "Very nice crew"
Cons: "Audio jack did not work and no one bothered..."
Pros: "Efficiency, punctuality, courteous service"
Cons: "Small aircraft, for the sector."
Pros: "-Blue lighting and head space makes the plane feel more open. -Staff was patient considering the unfair backlash they were getting for the recent abuse of a United passenger. -Seats were well cushioned. -I arrived home to my family alive, unhurt, and safe."
Cons: "-2 hour delay (especially after I arrived 2 hours early) is unacceptable. -Overhead bins too low over our seats. We can't stand up straight at our seats making it very difficulty to get in and out of our seats. -Couldn't access entertainment on my Mac laptop. -Bathroom closets are too small. Floors in the bathroom were consistently wet because the sink is too small for people to wash their hands. -Two bathrooms for the majority of the passengers on the plane is just not enough and you know it. It's pretty uncivilized. It creates a line at the back of the plane covering at least 5 rows. Then, your aisles are too narrow. So we have to rub our bodies up against each other to let people squeeze through. -I think you guys could do better than one tiny bag of pretzel mix for a 5 hour flight. -Let's get upper management flying in economy across the country and see what they would change."
Cons: "We had to check our hand luggage and be charged EUR120.00 We should have been aware of this before we obtained the boarding pass..."
Pros: "First class was fine - nothing too special"
Cons: "My flight last week they had us board and then de plane do to plane maintenance after I traveled litterly all day it added an extra hour. Then this flight Washington connection to Detroit from raleigh the pilot never showed up and extra hour went by, we got a new pilots but, then leading to faulty paperwork that took another hour and thirty minutes after boarding the plan to get sorted. When we got that sorted they then proceeded to tell us that the flight atendent had to leave and we had to wait another 20 min for another atendent to arrive before finally making our way to Detroit. They said to file a complaint and we would be compensated for our wait. Not sure if this is the right spot but I'm giving it a go. Thank you Keith Www.keithschmidt.com"
Pros: "On time. Enough space ."
Cons: "delay too long"
Pros: "Phone charger at every seat"
Cons: "Earphones for movie did not work"
Pros: "Nice crew, on time"
Cons: "Tiny cramped plane"
Cons: "Lack of planning. Even though it was specified that I was travelling with a senior citizen. There was a short time between conecting flights. Having my elderly mother having to rush from one gate to other with no assistance whatsoever. Barely making it to the gate on time and luggage getting lost. Still to this time which is around 24 hours later from the flight, there is no response about her bags. Insulin was on checked luggage. She experiencing serious knee pain due to the fast walk from gate to gate. Fast walk being mention since she is old and can't run. Besides that, flights were good."
Cons: "Because of the short connection time the group of people including me made it to the gate a bit late. However the plane was still at the gate and did not leave for another 15 minutes. But they refused to take us on board saying t was too late, as a result: They sent us with the next flight to Chicago instead of Washington DC. My whole schedule was messed up as i had to fly through Chicago. My luggage was lost and i only received it 2 days later. Will file the complaint."
Pros: "My mother was the one that flew. But after intense interrogation she divulged that the planes were on time and employees pleasant. Nothing stood out good or bad. Just the way a flight should be, in my opinion."
Pros: "Quick flight, good service"
Cons: "Delay on return flight."
Pros: "i liked that the flight was smooth and departed onetime and arrived a little early."
Pros: "Great price and comfortable seating. Also friendly staff"
Cons: "No complaints"
Cons: "I think United is improving constently"
Pros: "The actual flight was great. It was very easy, the movies were new and good. The food was surprisingly good (as I was coming home from Italy). The crew was great and always nice"
Cons: "The airport was extremely disorganized and I will never fly out of Rome again. Boarding and Unboarding were absolutely awful though"
Cons: "landing was little jerky and food smell made me nauseated."
Cons: "Luggage compartment too small even for a rolling laptop bag"
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: "Small glasses of water were offered very infrequently. Needed much much more"
Cons: "Explanation on why it took so long to board was a vage"
Pros: "Got there."
Cons: "Small, cramped seating. Outdoor jetway upon arrival."
Pros: "This was the most smoothest overall trip I have ever had flying! I loved the new plane (from JAX) and the leg room since I'm 6'5 and it was very comfortable. Everyone involved in the process were very professional as well."
Pros: "We were well compensated for a traveling fiasco. Our plane died in Newark. Our new plane wasn't big enough for 12 of us. It was a pretty crummy to spend Easter Sunday at the airport while our entire family celebrated the holiday. I do really appreciate the travel certificates we received for our trouble."
Cons: "As I stated above, we were stuck at the airport for the duration of Easter Sunday. We were supposed to be home by 1:30pm. Kind of a bummer to have wasted the entire holiday; but I guess that's what you get for traveling on holidays."
Cons: "the stuffs were mean and helpless,your luggage fee was so high ,only give one checked bag for free,this is international airline and you charged the first for 100 dollars and the second one for 200dollars and you let me,a poor little girl felt lonely in the airport and found it nowhere to complain,I missed two flights in one day and the air attendant 's attitude were bad,this was the worst experience ever in my life,I won't recommend United airlines to any of my friends"
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: "nothing. I will never use kayak again"
Cons: "Kayak doesn't actually have anything to do with it my trip, it turns out. So when my flights got messed up, I couldn't call Kayak. And I couldn't call United or SAS because they said some third-rate travel agency actually bought me the ticket (after I "purchased" through Kayak. And so when I missed my SAS connection because of my delayed United connecting flight, nobody cared and nobody can assure me I'll ever get reimbursed. United said called SAS. SAS said call the travel agency... and on and on it went."
Pros: "The flight was not fully booked so there were plenty of empty seats for everyone on to spread out."
Cons: "The flight was minorly delayed for de-iceing, but not more than maybe 30 mins or so. Not even worth saying what I didn't like about the flight when its necessary!"
Cons: "The flight was over one hour late departing ORD. We had approximately 15 minutes to make our connection at IAD. While I understand that the delay happened because the copilot was late because of a fender bender, I believe the delay could have been much shorter. Since they had telephone contact with the crew member we could have been boarded before he was on the plane and departed sooner. Also no reasonable explanation was given for the delay other than a crew member was not there."
Cons: "No complaints"
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: "Fast boarding, on time."
Cons: "My flight was a redeye, and there was no sleep to be had. The seat are super uncomfortable. The crew made unnecessary noise slamming cupboards shut; and, turned on all the lights when they were handing out food. At least one of the other attendants turned off the seating lights after a minute or 2. Furthermore, they charge you for seats and extra bags. Could have gone with a better airline for comparable price."
Pros: "Landing was good"
Cons: "Surprise cost of carry on bags Flight attendents reguests over and over to clean areah"
Pros: "The design of the seats"
Cons: "The staff did not work they sat in the back of the plane the whole time talking about other employees captains and how dissatisfied they are with the shifts that they work etc. The crew even had passengers move from the back row 30 so they could have a place to sit in the back of the plane ."
Cons: "carry-on $30?! check in luggage $40?! ridiculous."
Cons: "Charging $45 for carry-on, is way too much, regardless of whether it's a budget airline. Round-trip it's an extra $90. Might as well put that money toward the flight of another airline."
Cons: "High charge on baggage. Not even water. I will not want to flight with you again. Sorry."
Cons: "Airplane is new but chairs are made of plastic and very thin, they don't recline and you have very small space -- very uncomfortable. I flew from Miami to Vegas (5 hours) The plane flew at low altitude the entire way and went right through all storms just to save fuel/money. People were afraid for their lives because the plane was shaking so bad. I travel 1-2 weeks out of each month by plane for work and I am not afraid, I knew it was fine, but others had no idea and were very afraid. I know it is a cheap airline, but the real problem I had with them was they are not honest. Their website says that if you chose your seat online you have to pay, but if you do at check in it is free and they will try to keep your party together as long as there's seats available. Upon arriving at the counter they wanted to charge me to keep me and my fiancée together, otherwise she was at the front of the plane and I was all the way at the back. The plane had extra seats and we got there early to get assigned seats together but even the manager would not help me even after showing their website. He said the computer will make them charge me and there was no way around it. There's always a way around it. At the end of the day, paying for seats, all bags you check in or carry on, foods/drinks in the plane, I paid just as much as flying with a good airline such as Delta. I will never fly with them again, that is for sure."
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: "They just boarded all groups at the same time. It was chaos and caused a mess with where people were putting their bags. Also, I paid extra to board early, so this was even more frustrating. I don't like that everything is for sale. Water, carry ons, come on! You end up being more expensive than flying another airline."
Cons: "No es posible que haya atrasos en los vuelos"
Cons: "i thought i cancelled this reservation but apparently it was kept active to insulate the airline from overbooking...i called and specifically asked to cancel but was refused"
Cons: "The prices are looks cheap, but after you all the extras it comes up even more expensive then any other airlines, but it still a cheap company. The seats are extremely uncomfortable, not adjustable at all! No food, no drinks even for a 5 hours flight. The carry on bag is $45! Stay away!!!"
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: "Crew was nice, but very uptight about wearing a seatbelt, not standing in line to use the bathroom, not changing seats, etc."
Cons: "I booked tickets with this airline for the first time because prices were significantly cheaper than with other airlines. However, I didn't realize I would have to pay $45 for carry on luggage, pay extra if I did want a seat in the middle, and even pay for soft drank! After factoring in all those things, it would have been a lot cheaper to use a different airline. Plus, it was by far the most uncomfortable airplane I have ever been on. No leg room, small seats that do not recline and have no cushion. Terrible experience!"
Cons: "Who charges for carry on bags? And why are the seat so small. I'll never fly with them again"
Pros: "Courtesy& efficiency of the crew"
Cons: "the same as above"
Pros: "The crew were very polite."
Cons: "I hated that the seats didn't recline at all. Luckily it was only a 2 hour flight."
Pros: "The chairs are spacious, the staff is really friendly the prices are cheap"
Cons: "Paying for a carry 40 EACH trip on i thought was a little too much also they dont have any tv on the plane, didnt have enough beverages when i asked them... Would i recommend them again? Maybe . You end up paying the same as if you were flying with jetblue and delta... So"
Pros: "I got there in one piece"
Cons: "This airline is terrible - the seats are supremely uncomfortable and they charge for everything - even to carry on a bag! I didn't know that before this trip, but I will never fly Frontier Airlines again"
Cons: "Seats did not recline."
Pros: "The crew was courteous and professional."
Cons: "After adding up all of the hidden fees with the "low cost" of the flight, it all came out to MORE than I would have paid if I had booked a flight with another carrier!. As ad DEPENDENT of an active duty military member, I NEVER have to pay for checked luggage, much less a carry on! Once I got over having to pay and additional $150 for luggage, I board the plane to find extremely uncomfortable seats with half of a tray table, all I could do was laugh. The joke was totally on me!!!! For a flight that was over 3 hours long, it was NOT WORTH ANY OF IT!!! I didn't do the research that I should have, and that is totally on me. Fool me once, but NEVER AGAIN."
Cons: "When I checked in for my flight, the website said I would be three hours delayed. Later in the afternoon I just happened to check my flight status again and my flight time had been pushed forward causing me to rush out the door with less than one hour to make my flight. I barely made the flight but once I was seated we were delayed again. I did appreciate that we were given updates on why we were delayed however."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "The lady at the counter was rude. The chairs where so bad I ended up with back pains for days. I undestand its a low fare airline but this airline takes it to the extreme."
Cons: "I was locked out of the first flight due to not having the ability to get a boarding pass via the internet. When I arrived, I used the kiosk to get a boarding pass. Was directed to the ticket agent who stated I was too late to get a boarding pas. I asked if there was room on the flight and was told there was a lot of room. This was 1/2 hour before the doors closed for this flight. The agent told be to go elsewhere and that if I were to get to Miami I needed to book through another airline. I found American had a flight that left half an hour later and booked it at an additional expense of $493.10 FYI: I did have flight insurance and was told it is no good and that basically I'm screwed. I hope someone reads this and compensates me for my added expense."
Pros: "Very nice crew!"
Cons: "Delay from Miami to Atlanta"
Pros: "Only thing i liked is That we didnt crash"
Cons: "-$40 fee for personal bag that was slightly over regulation -one hour delay PLUS 2 hours stuck on runway in the airplane without access to water nor could we stand up out of our chairs for bathroom -finally when they were serving food and beverage only paying passengers had first access to food and water even if the crew had to walk all the way to the back and then back to the front to serve and charge them, it took about 45 minutes until they started serving water (of which the second cup of water they needed to charge for supposedly although we got "lucky" and they gave us a free second little glass of water)"
Pros: "Cheap tickets."
Cons: "You have to pay almost as much for your bags and seat selection as the tickets. Seats are hard as a rock and really jammed together."
Pros: "Customer service does not exist.i iwill never fly again with you or any of your affiliates. Don't bother w a response unless you're offering me a free flight. Good luck, you will need it if you want to remain in business, Sincerely, Lee Arroyo"
Cons: "honestly this airline is horrible. the employees are all rude and have an extremely large attitude. I've never felt so uncomfortable in my life. and also the seats are extremely hard and do not recline. i could usually deal with this but the attitude of all the employees really ruined my entire experience! i promise you even though this is a cheap air line pay a little extra because its worth it. i will never be flying frontier again."
Cons: "Delay of two hours"
Pros: "A little bumpy, the plane was full. I almost don't make it to the airport on time. But everything else was good."
Cons: "1- solamente daban agua en un viaje de 5 horas 2-la comodidad terrible los acuentos parecian de bus de carretera ... Bueno el avion decia airbus pienso que esta aerolinia no esta capacitada de ningun modo para hacer viajes mas largo de 1 hora 3- de regreso las vegas miami nunca me ofrecieron ni agua 4-los acientos no se podian ni reclinar tan si quiera mi novio tiene los pies grandes y tuvo que ir doblado todo el tiempo ... Entre mucho mas no recomiendo esta aerolinia es barata pero lo barato sale caro gracias!!!!"
Pros: "The staff at the counter in Raleigh was very helpful and the flight crew was great. The lady at the counter there took extra time to help get us seats next to each other."
Cons: "It was not clearly stated that carry-on luggage would be charged $45 per item. This is an unusual policy and should have been clearly and prominently stated when purchasing the ticket. With my wife and I this added $90 to our combined ticket price and we would have flown a different airline had we known this. It seemed like a trick to get folks to pick a cheaper ticket only to make up the cost at the door what an individual would have paid for a competing ticket."
Pros: "The base fares are decent and the crew is friendly."
Cons: "The seats are extremely uncomfortable and the airline has taken penny pinching to the extreme and it shows. The baggage fees are way too high."
Pros: "Smooth flight, on time"
Cons: "The staff could have been friendlier"
Pros: "The crew was nice. Not their fault that the seats are uncomfortable and immovable, and that refreshments are not complementary."
Cons: "The airlines company's only concern is to cram as many people as possible into the smallest possible space. Horribly uncomfortable."
Pros: "My name is Yacouba, On the day of the flight I had to return a rental car in a city that I am not familiar with. Therefore, doing so took a little long than expected. I happened to miss the flight. At the checkin, instead of putting me on another flight, they told me that it was over that I had to rebook a new tickets to my own expense. I thought that was not fair enough from an airline."
Pros: "I have to admit that the seats were more comfortable than they looked. But I could not recline."
Cons: "The delays, several hours going to Atlanta and one hour coming back. It appears this is typical for Frontier. Also, $40.00 for the carry on. The deal I thought I had was not a deal. By the time I paid $80.00 round trip for two I could have taken a more convenient flight for the same money without paying for my carry on. I went with Frontier because I thought I was getting a deal. I felt nickled and dimed, pay for soft drinks??????? But the worse was the delays, with no explanation at all!"
Cons: "My flight was cancelled at the last minute forcing me to look for another flight and ending up buying a very, expensive, last minute ticket on United Airline. I could not accept the flight on December 31, 2015 due to many very important meetings. I hope that this will not happen again."
Cons: "My original flight from MIA to Las Vegas was cancelled 1-1/2 hours before takeoff. There was no reason provided by the CSRs. Their instructions on rebooking the flight were severely insufficient and led to much frustration. My 9 am flight had to rebooked to 5:20 pm. I spent all day at the airport and no reason whatsoever was provided. No meal vouchers were provided either. That was a terrible experience."
Cons: "After checking in the night before, we arrived at the gate only to be told the flight was overbooked. We watched for over 15 minutes, more than 10 people run to catch the flight with seconds to spare-only to be told we werent going to get the seats I booked a month in advance. We'll NEVER (almost) fly Frontier again. Only saving grace-a nice supervisor (Mandy) got us a refund plus some. Thank you Mandy."
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: "The good thing about my experience traveling with Frontier was safety, I don't care about hours waiting to depart as long as technicians staff gives the great light to get on board. Last and not forgotten is a non stop flight so to me al the compliance end up within 4 to 5 hours .The flight crew was very kind with the passengers."
Cons: "Carry on prices wasn't expected at all, snacks are very limited, seats couldn't lean back. Had this experience by been delayed for 4 hours because technical problems and didn't have the nerve to apply a discount or refund on the trip . Some passengers were upset and concerned about connection flights."
Cons: "Planes are like buses. Don't fit a 5-6 hours flight No WiFi No leg room even when I paid for better seat Plastic seats like a cheap bus from the 1980"
Cons: "The payment process is confusing. At boarding there were many passengers who didn't know there was a charge for a carryon so that slowed down the boarding for the rest of us. Then you get going only to find out you have to pay for a soda too. I detest the nickel and dining. Just charge me one flat rate and call it a day."
Pros: "Everything was excellent"
Pros: "The crews at the front desk is extremely impolite!!!! Never take this poor airline ever again!"
Cons: "The service of the crews"
Pros: "I upgraded to the bigger chair and it was comfy."
Cons: "A cup of water would've been nice."
Cons: "San Diego has a flight curfew and no planes can take off before 6:30AM, we had to sit and wait on the plane for 30 mins, it would be better to just have a 6:30 flight"
Pros: "but reach destination 45 min.early"
Cons: "late by 2 hours"
Cons: "Spirit terminal at Las Vegas was hopelessly crowded; standing room only. By contrast the Southwest terminal next door was orderly and calm. Spirit needs to find a location in the airport with more space."
Pros: "The crew were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Only one counterposition open at check-in do it took forever to get through that, alone. No guidance to the security shortcut, do nearly missed it after paying extra for it. Has to pay for carry-on; seat; $3 bottle of water; $3 muffin. Too many charges adding up to...should’ve taken Southwest! Never, never fly Spirit!!"
Cons: "They charge for everything. The plane ticket. To pick a seat. For a carry one. And the chairs don’t even decline or do anything I’m in the worst neck pain"
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: "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: "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 $100 for 1 bag and a carry on item."
Cons: "First, when I booked I was not given option to pay for baggage or choose seats, meaning I wasn't able to use the cheapest option. I had to spend at least 2 hours on the phone with a Spirit agent to get to pay for my bags before arriving at the airport at all - I wasn't able to do it online. On day of flight: the first leg was delayed. When we got to layover our final flight had been cancelled with no reason given. We were booked on another flight 8 hours later which meant we got in late enough that I had to miss another day of work. The Spirit agent at the gate in Las Vegas was also extremely rude. I also didn't get any phone or email updates."
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "The fact that spirit delayed my flight from San Diego to Vegas for 3 hours, making me miss my connecting flight from Vegas to Detroit by literally 30 mins. They wouldn't hold that plane for 30 mins since it was their fault we were late in the first place. And then the only flight next was 9 hours later"
Cons: "I must pay for my baggage. It's crazy couse I paid 100$ 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"
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!"
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: "Cost of fare"
Cons: "No leg room"
Cons: "Spirit cancelled my flight."
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."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seating. Seats don't tilt for comfort"
Pros: "Very relaxing flight crew was awesome, I found the flight very comfortable and the plane crew was very nice but a charge for drinks and food including a 2.00 charge for a little bottle of water was a bit much overall a great flight"
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Seats are small, hard and don't recline. The cabin was very warm through out the trip. Even a cup of water comes with a charge."
Pros: "Your flight crew were fun and personable. The young lady who helped check me in was amazing. Can't remember her name but she was black with short curly hair. She was a doll. Very professional and helpful. Very polite."
Cons: "I was in row 26 the very back and it was a bit cramped but not too much of a bother."
Pros: "About the only good thing on this flight was the flight was smooth"
Cons: "No room at all, seats were extremely narrow and didn't recline, fold down tray was about 3x6 inches, couldn't use it for anything. We were stuck on the tarmac for 1 hour due to de-icing procedures then the 3 hour flight. Nothing was offered free for our troubles, we had to beg for a cup of ice to melt to have some liquids, a small bottle of water was $3. We didn't have to beg for the 10 minute infomercial towards the end of the flight trying to get people to apply for a Bank of American credit card. One female flight attendant must have poured an entire bottle of perfume, the smell was over powering, many people were complaining about burning eyes and throats, this attendant nor did the rest seem to be concerned about it. Another concern is we thought the flight deck door is to remain closed and locked the entire flight. The flight crew came in and out numerous times and the flight attendants took turns going into the flight deck for several minutes. The flight attendant who wreaked of perfume spent much time in the flight deck. When the pilots were needing to get back in they dialed up on their intercom phone and were making some kind of comments and then laughing and quickly hung up. We paid extra to board right away due to needing to bring medical equipment to put in overhead bin, did not call our zone as supposed to and by the time we were allowed on the bins above our seat and nearby were full with carry-ons from people seated elsewhere. I guess the old saying "you get what you pay for" we paid for a cheap flight and we got it, that will not happen again."
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."
