Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
"Flight attendant in first class could be more friendly .. she looked annoyed throughout the flight and didn’t seem like she wanted to be. Need work in the customer service department. Same for my outbound flight. Otherwise the flight was on time and got to where I needed to go."
Pros: "The crew was amazing and the service was efficient and professional!"
Pros: "The crew and attendants Kimberly and Jade were very nice and helpful. The captain was the same as the previous flight from San Jose del Cabo."
Cons: "This plane had considerably less leg room than the previous plane in the A aisle. I would have booked a different aisle if I knew that I was going to be sacrificing leg room by being in the A aisle over B.C or D aisles."
Cons: "Less people on the plane, the social distance is NOT followed inside the plane."
Pros: "Love Alaska Airlines!"
Pros: "crew was great and the landing was like a paper airplane!!!"
Pros: "Fast baggage pick up."
Cons: "Could use more luggage space"
Pros: "Over all experience"
Cons: "Lounge at LAX"
Cons: "Trip was great!"
Pros: "Clean plane and punctual flight"
Cons: "Overall no complaints"
Pros: "Nothing because there was no social distancing. I did not think that airlines were allowed to completely fill flights and I had no choice once I was boarded."
Cons: "Please observe social distancing and DO NOT book completely full flights where seats can’t be left open. Irresponsible and stupid."
Cons: "Good experience"
Pros: "The staff at both airports were amazing. (SNA/SFO) From ease of arrival at check in by Alaska Airlines staff to the airport security at SFO providing assistance to help me guide my ride to pick me up the best description of where I was to ease pick up. That’s not to mention the Alaska staff that allowed me to move my flight up to accommodate my schedule or the excellent staff at the gate and on the plane. Very nice experience!"
Pros: "The check-in kiosk was easy to use."
Cons: "Better bag drop process, smoother boarding process, and friendlier staff."
Cons: "Flight was 2 hours delayed when other airlines were not experiencing delays"
Pros: "Amazing crew. Everyone from Bag check in thru baggage claim were courteous and attentive."
Cons: "The plane was VERY hot - uncomfortably so."
Pros: "I liked getting the $75 credit due to the extreme lateness of the flight."
Cons: "The passengers seemed a bit wound up after a 3 hour delay. When it was time for the safety review, several passengers were not listening to the attendants, and one attendant shouted "Hey, you need to listen. This is important. This is not a party bus." I understand her frustration, but her behavior was really unprofessional. I've been in customer service for years, and you never let your personal frustration show. She should have brought the behavior to the attention of the flight deck for the pilot to make an announcement, etc. Southwest attendants are always cool, calm and collected. I'll bear that in mind the next time I book."
Pros: "Lots of leg room"
Cons: "on-time departure"
Cons: "Is the plane was on time"
Cons: "Seats and the seating arrangements were poor. Seats were assigned at different places even if you are part of the same family/ticket. The aircraft do not have 3-4-3 seat arrangements. So it would be difficult for families with 2 kids."
Pros: "The seats"
Cons: "Nothing it’s was great"
Cons: "Alaska is unreliable. You either have an hour and a half+ delay, to wait on the tarmac after landing for 25+ minutes bc another Alaska plane is in your spot, they change your seat on you at the last second, break your suitcase, etc. All these things happened to me in the last 4 days w/ Alaska."
Cons: "The flight to San Diego was late. The flight back to SFO was also late. Never flying Alaska Airlines again"
Pros: "The flight itself was great. Friendly crew, comfortable for a short flight. Timely departure and arrival."
Cons: "Schedule change. Flight was cancelled and replaced with one 3 hrs earlie, which strained my schedule quite a bit."
Pros: "People were friendly and super helpful."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "The crew did it’s best but there was 2 hours delay due to issues at San Francisco airport."
Pros: "Not sure how we mistakenly booked premium economy but the extra legroom was nice."
Cons: "Didn’t try the food. Entertainment required a pre downloaded app which we didn’t have."
Pros: "good, free movies"
Cons: "couldn't get on standby for earlier flight because of my "cheap" ticket. I didn't know this until I got to the gate 5 hours early. I understand it was probably obvious somewhere when I bought the ticket, but it was a bit irritating."
Cons: "We ended up missing our flight. No information was given regarding the terminal and gate for our flight. Even when checking in online, we had no direction where to go. In San Diego, Alaska is terminal one. We walked in and asked the lady at the Alaska desk if we had everything correct and she quickly pushed us along. After going through security we were unable to find our flight info. We asked multiple workers who did not know. We asked a rep for another flight who told us we needed to go to the other terminal. We ran to the other terminal, went through security again and looked for our flight. This terminal had zero Alaska identification and no one could tell us where our flight was. After combing though the entire second terminal looking on the flight deck for any Alaska planes, we saw none. Ready to give up, we finally found the gate which was not one of the standard gates. We run over with 7 minutes left and are told the door is closed and there's nothing they can do. We rehash the entire story and the ladies at the desk rather than express empathy for our situation, question the validity of our story to which I asked the lady to please come with us to show us how we are wrong. She later informed us that Alaska was moving terminals and was only partially moved (hence the lack of signage). They booked us a flight 4 hours later. Luckily, we found our own flight on another airline and we were completely satisfied with United and their ability to fit us onboard with seconds to spare. I will add that Alaska's twitter service team was far more helpful than anyone in the actual airport."
Pros: "They did find for us another flight at no extra fee. An agent stayed with us on the line to the bitter end, it took some 3 hours on the phone to sort it out."
Cons: "Original flight was rescheduled twice, then canceled. We had to change our transportation plans twice."
Pros: "After the purchase, Alaska is using Virgin planes, which are very nice - comfy, well appointed, and with the fun lighting."
Cons: "This is the second time in 3 flights with Alaska that they’ve bumped my seat at boarding time from a nice aisle near the front to a window near the restrooms. I’d gladly have volunteered if asked, but they didn’t ask. This most recent flight, the beverage service was extremely slow - it took nearly an hour for them to get down to my relocated seat. By then, it was nearly time to land, so I barely had time to finish. I’ve noticed the cups are smaller now as well. I usually fly rather than drive for the holidays, I think I’m done with flying."
Pros: "Explain what is going on"
Cons: "An explanation of why we sat boarded on the tarmac for 45 mins"
Pros: "Hand luggage wasn’t fussed over"
Cons: "Most seats didn’t recline properly. Wireless/entetaimebt and charging weren’t working."
Pros: "It was all good."
Pros: "arrived quickly and"
Pros: "Excellent take off and landing."
Cons: "They had ressigned seats and put me in the middle of a full row, in front of the emergency exit, so the seat would not recline. The head rest was made for a tall man, and its position made me lean forward until my neck hurt. The movie selections were good, but the earphone jack didn't work well enough to hear the dialog. They let me move to another seat and the earphones didn't work there either. After trying two different earphones they concluded the jack was bad. Also the seats were smaller and there was less leg room than the Alaska flight going out."
Pros: "Very late sound didn’t work"
Pros: "Liked the seats. Liked the service. The food on my previous flight HX60 was better."
Cons: "Flight was delayed. Other than that, nothing to complain about. Like I said, ordinary flight."
Pros: "The food order concept"
Cons: "No food, not even snacks, despite the long fligjt"
Pros: "It was excellent. They even waived the baggage fee!"
Pros: "Ummm...I bought a ticket on Alaskan and it ended up being a Virgin aircraft."
Cons: "There wasn’t a power outlet at my seat."
Cons: "We were bumped and downgraded because staff routed us to the wrong terminal. What a mess the Virgin takeover is at San Diego."
Cons: "Flught was delayed for 2 hours"
Pros: "Enough room for my legs"
Cons: "No head phones! Maybe offer while waiting before boarding!"
Cons: "Snotty steward in the back. Not pleasant."
Pros: "Everything was great! This was my first time flying Alaska Air and I could not have had a better trip! Everything ran according to schedule, I was comfortable during the flight, slept the entire time, staff was great!"
Cons: "The woman making announcements did not specifically announce the duration of the flight as we were departing. I was able to figure it out on the map option on the screen, but I would've liked to hear it verbally. Only suggestion I would have is an announcement on the plane for which baggage claim belt our luggage would come out of. I may not have heard it though, if there was an announcement. It was not difficult at all to figure out once I was in the baggage claim area, however if this was known while we were still on the flight, I prefer to know this info!"
Pros: "The crew was upbeat and friendly"
Cons: "Flight was late, there was no sense of urgency to get the passengers on the plane, it left almost an hour late, no chargers on the plane."
Pros: "The flight from CVG to LAS pretty quick"
Cons: "Allegiance staff at Check-in staff are very rude AMD full of themselves, instead of explaining they expect every traveler know policies of allegiant, there are no boarding pass scanners and to print for you they want $5 if not they force to download their app so that you can get the boarding pass that can be read by TSA scanners ridiculous!!"
Pros: "Easy boarding"
Cons: "Half the flight didn't wear masks, crew didn't bother to enforce."
Pros: "This was my first time flying out of South Bend and I loved the smallness of the airport and the option to take a direct flight to Vegas to cost family. No long lines and crowds made it easy to social distance."
Cons: "I would have liked it the seat reclined slightly or had the adjustable headrest so my head wouldn't flop back and forth while I took a nap."
Pros: "Fast boarding, early arrival"
Cons: "Snack offerings"
Pros: "Crew and plane ride."
Cons: "The seats hurt us."
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Leg room"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Very bumpy from take off thru first half of flight, though this wasn’t anyone from allegiant’s fault, just scary!"
Pros: "Not much after sitting in the airport for two extra hours on both flights"
Cons: "They could have boarded flights on time or at least explained why the flight had been delayed."
Pros: "Crew was nice and efficient."
Cons: "Check in counter needed more help-line very long"
Pros: "Boarding was fast. We arrived early."
Cons: "It was too cold & they kept turning on the lights (it was a late night flight)."
Cons: "Flight attendants talked loudly the whole flight. Very uncomfortable"
Pros: "I didn’t enjoy anything about this flight unfortunately it was my worst experience with an airline that I’ve ever had."
Cons: "I had checked my bag with was a personal bag and they said it fit inside the metal stand they had so when I proceeded to board another lady had told me I’d pay $50 or wouldn’t get on. She was very rude she let me friend with two bags go on without paying. I took four flights and never had this issue"
Pros: "The crew was very nice."
Cons: "The AC was broken - only the front half of the plane was getting it. The back half was very hot."
Pros: "Comfort nice cool cabin on boarding"
Cons: "No complaints with airline but flight was a little ruff on approach made me a little nauseous."
Cons: "There was no way for us to add another bag after our seat placement. No one answered the phone for Alligent and the website didn’t work. It costs $20 extra to do this at the airport. Even though it was not our fault that there was no one answering phone calls (and no way to leave a message)"
Pros: "Definitely the price. Fairly quick boarding process, just a little congested. Decent priced drinks."
Cons: "Not the most comfortable seats, but there was no one next to me, so it was okay."
Pros: "The crew was amazing"
Pros: "The gate agent was amazing and super helpful."
Cons: "Seats are tight and not very comfortable."
Pros: "LEFT EARLY ARRIVED EARLY PERFECT"
Pros: "The staff was friendly"
Cons: "The flight was delayed multiple times, the directions on having boarding passes on the app or printed prior were not given so found that our last minute to avoid paying the front desk clerk $5.00. The flight landed 5 hours later than scheduled which is completely unacceptable."
Pros: "Arrived on time after boarding was delayed. Great price/ you get what you pay for."
Cons: "No diaper changing station in any of the 3 bathrooms.flight attendants could have been friendlier"
Cons: "I am so angry booking with them. I booked the flight and then thought, ok I will add a rental car. It said clearly that the rental Car could be canceled up until 24 hours before the flight. Well, 2 weeks before the flight, my friend said, don’t get a rental car, I will have my car. So I cancelled and only then did I find out that once I booked it through their site I could not get a refund for the car and I could only get a voucher for use on one of their flights! And only after they take out any fees and costs that was accrued! So angry!"
Pros: "It was easy to book. And they helped me make changes to my flight schedule without charging me"
Cons: "Everything else is charged... from the in service beverage cart, to your boarding pass. Your baggage. Everything you have to pay for. So just be prepared for that."
Pros: "Quick boarding with no fuss."
Cons: "The planes could be a lot cleaner."
Cons: "baggage staff was super rude. She told me I am the last passenger on the plane which wasn't true. She made me pay $50 because of little overweight. I could easily redistribute the weight among my bags if she gave me little chance. I was a single mom with two kids (3 months and 3 years old) had to pay a fine which I can't afford. Thanks for giving me the chance to express my feelings."
Cons: "I understand that Allegiant has a pricing structure to implement, but forcing passengers to keep personal items between their feet when most of the overhead compartments were empty was just insulting and ridiculous - not to mention dangerous. In the event of extreme turbulence (or worse), all those personal items would be flying around the cabin."
Pros: "Love the ticket price, but charging $44 for a carry-on? C'mon man! Added charges that were worth it? Priority boarding: $15, Exit row seating: $25 Also be advised that all food & drink is for purchase and must be purchased with debit or credit card - absolutely no cash."
Pros: "Plane was late. 2 years ago it was late and while there at the airport I heard Allgeant routine runs hours late or cancels. 3-4 hours, not an hour. Good thing I dont fly too often"
Pros: "On the way there and back the staff was friendly, the flight was smooth and and overall everything was just great. This was my first time flying with Allegiant and I will definitely do it again."
Cons: "Old plane with fixed seats with very limited leg room which were not comfortable- broken window shades, scratched windows, & rattles everywhere made for a long flight. Crew was ok, I would fly again if the price was enough of a savings"
Cons: "Allegiant 468 7/27 4 1/2 hour delay on flight 569 on 7/27 and not a single person on the ground or plane even said sorry. Allegiant also failed to update the revised departure time. Allegiant posted an initial delay of 30 minunutes but then, when there was a further 2 hour delay due to a problem with the plane in Vegas Allegiant didn't update the time. (G4 568 was showing a two hour delay, with a 1010 arrival into STS but Allegiant never updated the departure time for 569 to reflect the additional two hour delay.) It wasn't until I called that it got updated and when I called I had to point out that the airplane hadn't even left Vegas and Allegiant was still showing an 8:50 departure time. It also took the reservation agent over 20 minutes to get any information about what was going on. Lastly each and every time I call I was on hold for a minimum of 20 minutes before being able to speak to a person"
Pros: "I did not like anything about it. The Departure flight was two hours late. They made us board then unboard the plane, change gates. Then the return flight was posponed from 9pm to 3am departure. They didn't have any refreshments in the gare area other than stale unhealthy pizza, no water. The seats on the plane were the most uncomfortable. I even purchased the extI did not like anything about it. The Departure flight was two hours late.

Pros: "Comfort and speed of the flight. Attentive staff!"
Cons: "Need one craft beer"
Pros: "Their flights are always delayed. They have some pretty old flights and they always get broke before the take off and they have to do some maintenance before take off. Not going to fly again with them."
Cons: "Entire flight experience."
Pros: "The price and the nonstop flight."
Cons: "6+ hour delays Plane looked to be in sad shape, paint peeling, looked bolted together from spare parts. Strange Air Conditioning issues mid-flight that turned the plane into a walk-in freezer. upon landing our entire flights bags were abandoned and there wasn't a single Allegiant representative in the airport to communicate with the airport baggage people. After 1.5 hour wait our bags were finally offloaded onto the baggage claim by an airport employee not normally tasked with the job. Allegiant was paged over and over with no response. I will NEVER fly Allegiant again."
Cons: "Delayed 5 hours!"
Cons: "They overcharge for bags and their weight limit is only 40 pounds. They leave the desk and hour before take off which doesn't help people who are running late. They charge you to print out your boarding pass. They don't even send the boarding pass through email, you have to download the app. Overall horrible customer service. When call for customer service you can't even get a human representative. I missed my flight and they didn't even have another flight to to accommodate me to get to my destination and no one at the front desk to talk to."
Pros: "Airline was great. Told us right away they were only going to do one drink service so we could order two. Left on time and had no issues. Would definitely fly with them again. Even though you have to pay to check a bag, it's still a better deal than any other airline out there. People need to stop complaining about the extra fees, do you want cheap or not."
Cons: "Nothing. Was exactly what I expected for a $35.00 flight."
Cons: "everything was poor"
Cons: "5 hour delay. They offered meal vouchers. For 8 dollar like wtf? But of course they offered them after every place closed in the airport."
Pros: "STS ground crew waived goodbye. Love a small town airport"
Pros: "The flight left on time. Friendly crew"
Cons: "I don't like that they charge for carry on bags and they don't have a toll free number"
Pros: "It's a budget airline so don'texpect thrills, but it got me to my destination."
Cons: "The boarding agent didn't understand priority comes before group 3."
Cons: "Bought two tickets, I had to pay more to sit with my wife. Seats don't recline. Endless emails before the flight telling me to pay for my carry ons."
Pros: "Some of the crew was VERY rude. I was uncomfortable and will never fly through them again."
Pros: "Time of travel"
Cons: "No leg room"
Pros: "Having all the rodeo people going to the rodeo to Las Vegas"
Cons: "The weather blizzard and freeways being closed. I missed my flight"
Pros: "Check in was easy, seating comfortable, staff very polite"
Cons: "No complimentary beverage is kind of a bummer, since you do get quite thirsty during a flight"
Cons: "Crew was late and delayed flight 10 minutes"
Pros: "It was on time. Crew was great."
Cons: "Seats are not the comfiest."
Cons: "I took three flights from San Diego to San Francisco, San Francisco to Chicago, Chicago to Montreal. San Diego departure was almost an hour late. The Chicago departure was half an hour late because the pilot wasn’t checked in yet. It is very frustrating when I run through Chicago airport from B to E"
Pros: "Boarding was smooth and took an average amount of time. We arrived exactly on time. Staff were all friendly and helpful. Plane was clean.. overall very pleasant !"
Cons: "Naplaćene su mi torbe u San Diego po 58$ iako je to bilo uračunato u cenu pri kupovini karata !!! Za torbu od22kg(48),i torbu od15kg 116$! Nije korektno!!!! Brukaaa!!!Sramota!!Nikad više sa tom compani!! Never again!!!! Never!!!!"
Pros: "On time, flight attends are superb"
Cons: "Cramped seats due to greedy corporation trying to appease the share holders"
Pros: "Rapid boarding and comfortable seat. The flight attendant was great!"
Cons: "Snack selection wasn't impressive, as was the onboard entertainment unit - small screen and no flight info/map. Also no lounge access in San Diego since our ticket was through Air Canada."
Pros: "The flight attendants were professional and courteous"
Cons: "The carry on policy, the seats, the completelack of information on how to connect with wifi. The "sorry you might miss your connecting flight because we're running behind, but once you get off this plane nothing that happens to you is our problem even if we caused it to happen" attitude."
Pros: "It was quite average, nothing special.They severed some drinks and you get a bag of pretzels. The staff was very friendly and nice. It was only a 1 1/2 flight, so the only entertainment is magazines."
Cons: "The legroom was fine for me, but if you are about 6ft tall or over, you will feel a little cramped. Try to get an exit row seat if can."
Cons: "The counter person was inexperienced."
Cons: "the person helping me couldn't understand her and she was aggressive and charged me too much and wouldn't make adjustments about it."
Pros: "Truly don't remember his name but there was one young man on the plane that was very helpful highly recommend he's only been with the airline about 8 months and what is professional in every way thank you"
Pros: "The flight actually left."
Cons: "Poor communication. Flight originally at 11:35, then 12:05, then 12:15... At 11:55, they said they would start boarding in 20 min. How can you do that and still take off at 12:15? Answer: you can't. Just be honest and keep us informed. Bonus: United sent me an email saying that connection had already left (it hadn't - thanks United! - awesome service as always!)"
Pros: "But the amenities were terrible. I couldn’t figure out how to operate the in-seat video feature plus there was no food. Leg room was too cramped also."
Cons: "See above. Amenities were terrible as was leg and seat room."
Cons: "Not only was boarding delayed almost 2 hours. Once we were on the plane, we sat on the tarmac for over an hour. We landed in SFO at 12:45 and missed my connector to Bend. United was not willing to do anything for me for the inconvenience (except hand out blankets)...so I slept in the airport until the next available flight at 8 a.m. the next more...I hope."
Pros: "The flight journey had turbulence, but the landing shows the pilot just not having good skill during landing, extremely rough"
Cons: "The vegetarian meal was not very good."
Pros: "Ive been delayed at the airport since 9 am it’s is now 9:41 pm and finally switched to an American Airlines flight so I can get home. Good thing I did because now that same flight is delayed until 8:45 tomorrow morning."
Pros: "Fast and effective. On time and crew was nice and helpful."
Cons: "They passed out drinks late !! Too close to landing time ."
Pros: "They gave us free tv since we had to wait so long and they made us wait for an hour on the tarmac."
Cons: "We had a connecting flight from San Francisco that we missed due to their delays. We still don't know why it was delayed. They didnt give a clear or concise reason for the delays. Our flight landed a few minutes before our connecting flight departed and instead of holding the plane like they have done in other reviews I've read they actually took off early. We were automatically given tickets to the next flight out to our final destination (which was 6 hours later.) This was sucky but we didn't have control over it so we dealt with it. However when we went to customer service to print our new tickets we were "greeted" with two apathetic employees. The first one we didn't actually get to interact with because after waiting in line for 10 minutes when it was finally our turn he held his hand up to stop us from walking up to the counter and just left. No explanation just headed out. So we headed over to the "premier" line for a procedure that should literally take 3 minutes to interact with the next employee who made it somehow our fault that we were mildly upset with the situation. My father always told me United "sucks" we gave them a chance but we should have heeded his fatherly advice. Oh and a bonus my traveling partner has a broken pelvis so sitting around for hours on end was just salt to the wound."
Pros: "I was able to board on time. Service in-flight was ok."
Cons: "I wasn't able to check-in at the self-serve kiosk. Customer service took a long time and helped two people that got in the inexistent line after me first. During the flight my seat was broken, wouldn't recline. I don't like I can't turn off the screen if I want to, rather I have to put up with that undesired content someone else manages."
Pros: "Easy on ! Organized"
Cons: "Crew was rude and seemed to be in a constant rush big lack of customer service"
Pros: "i eventually got to SF"
Cons: "The flight kept getting delayed and they wouldn't tell us why. There happened to be a line forming at the counter and when i asked an employee why people were lining up, all that i got in reply was "because the flights delayed". Thanks...i had no idea"
Cons: "I paid $50 extra for a flight to leave at 5 instead of 8 and they ended up so late that the cheaper flight left before we did. Overbooked and packed to the point of immobility."
Pros: "Cancelled the first flight I was on. Then the second flight out of SAN to SFO was delayed so we sat on the plane for an hour. Of course i was fine but the way United treated people who were going to miss their connections was nothing but rude. I've had it with them!"
Cons: "I wish airlines that treat you like a human like Virgin, Alaska.."
Pros: "Friendly, cheerful cabin crew."
Cons: "If I wanted to check my bag I wouldn't have dragged it through the airport. Boarding was a mess. Too many people put both their personal item and their bag up top. The whole boarding process stopped when people with bags there was no space for ran into people trying to get to the back of the plane. It was stuck still for a good five minutes while we figured out how to un-jam the space. I blame airline policies that discourage checking a bag, at any weight. I really dislike gate checking a bag."
Pros: "The staff were very freindly"
Cons: "They had a setup if you wanted to watch a movie you had to log onto your computer or other device, but you had to down load the United airlines app, but my IPad would not connect to download."
Cons: "Didn't happen"
Pros: "Your reminders!"
Pros: "Bad weather caused my flights to be re-routed, but United did wonderful in arranging for an similar arrival time to my final destination. I am very grateful for that. I can't judge the airline on something they have no control over."
Cons: "The bad weather that caused my flights to be re-routed!"
Pros: "Crew members were nice"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable and crammed , my seat wouldn't go back and the headphone jack was broken so I couldn't enjoy movies"
Cons: "On my flight back during taking off, I was throwing a trash away into a little bag that is also designed for vomiting. When I pushed a trash into the bag, I felt that it was already wet. Somebody vomited into it at the previous flight and placed it back to the seat's packet. I am not telling that it was the cleaning crew's mistake because it looked like unused until I pushed my hand into it, but it was still a very unpleasant experience and could be also a health hazard."
Pros: "Missed connection in SF to Medford due to other planes at our gate not allowing us to de-board on time to make my connection to Medford ...!!"
Pros: "The United Club Lounge is the best."
Pros: "Pre-check was fast Ride was pleasant Crew friendly."
Cons: "It was all good."
Pros: "Everything, except one thing"
Cons: "Little kid screaming the whole flight, kicking my seat. Parent threatened me and yelled at me."
Cons: "They did not let my daughter board to safely get home to my mother because she was to tall for a two year old and even after they were provided a birth certificate they still gave her seat up and wouldn't put her on a plane home until I bought another ticket. I am military I only flew with united because we have a contract with them"
Pros: "We were making an emergency trip to S.F. and everything thing was on time."
Cons: "Though we travel on United and have a United card the price of getting a last minute flight on a plane that was almost half empty was absurd. We will rent a car to return home."
Pros: "the crew , the services ."
Cons: "They don't respect their seats . And they let seat a strong smoker on my side and his seat was begin me . 3 costumers don't seat on their own seat all mix it aaaggghhhh"
Cons: "the whole experience was horrible."
Pros: "Long layovers and changed flights where not pleasant... I normally fly with Alaska Airlines and this never happens with them .."
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Plane was really noisy and made a weird noise during takeoff and landing. Sad thing was I had to board the saw plane from San Francisco to St. Louis as well!"
Pros: "Great time, great fast flight, clean airplane"
Cons: "it was freezing cold, no food/snack, pricey drinks (i passed), and far from friendly crew"
Pros: "I loved the overall service...how fast the flight appeared...the lack of turbulence...where I was seated during each interchange the professionalness, etc."
Cons: "On my transfer from Dulles to San Diego The Stewardess keep repeating how cranky and hungry she was...there were people sleeping when she was serving that she didn't awake when she passed their aisle...so after service was completed and she was walking back thru to the front of the plane and those patrons stopped her...she proceeded to get loud with them and ask why didn't they get it when she was there before...like I felt her whole demeanor during that time was very unprofessional..."
Pros: "I was content"
Cons: "The people sitting next to me"
Cons: "I had a problem when I got to the security zone, my name on the boarding pass was not complete, in Mexico we use the last name and a 2nd last name and my boarding pass just printed my last name, I had to be separated from the line until everything was clarified, please make sure that boarding pass includes customer's7 full name to avoid inconviniences, thanks ! Everything else was pretty good ;) !"
Pros: "The seats and the availabilty of tv if you want to pay. I also really apprciated the email updates from kayak with flight information and gate changes. I also liked being able to choose my seat on my phone."
Cons: "The asian mix with wasabi peas as a snack- gross!!! Gimmie pretzles, oyster crackers, goldfish, anything but that asian mix. What happened to peanuts?! I also didnt appriciate that i checked in on my phone almost as soon as i was able to and i was in the very last boarding group which left me subjuct to having to check my bags because the people before me took all the space....so i didnt really see any benefit to checking in asap on my phone...i was left with a somewhat bad taste in my mouth boarding as a united attendant said my bag was too big and had to be checked after already flying on two small planes with no problem. she insisted and i refused and there was plenty of space left, luckily i did not have to check my bag....on another note (and i know this is all the airline not sure if you care to hear it) i dont want to hear about space problems when i watch the pilots and flight attendants board with 2 or more bags and i see then in the storage spaces above the seats saying"do not move". Im the one paying for this flight. You all are working and or flying for free and should not get priority space for baggage. You check YOUR bags and see what thats like! Overall good experience though thanks for asking ;)"
Pros: "flight crew was really nice"
Cons: "-The service at the gate was really slow and really rude. They tried to convince me that my bag was too big for the overhead and wouldn't be able to go on the flight, even though it fit easily into their test bin, and when I got on, there was PLENTY of room for everyones bag. -The seats were really narrow. More narrow than other airlines. -The back of seat video monitors don't turn off, and if you want to watch them, it's expensive. So basically, you're inundated with ads the entire flight. -there wasn't full drink service on my flight, and not everyone was offered the same thing. some people got juice, the rest of us just got water."
Cons: "The fact that they lost my luggage for the second time."
"The company said the airline changed my flight time but the airline said it didn't. I had to scramble to find another flight last minute and let my credit card investigate the charges."
"Flight was quick and on time."
"Late departure. Waited on tarmac for over 20 minutes upon arrival. ZERO beverage service. Three thumbs down."
"The ride felt inviting from the start. It was nice"
"Waited 8 hours to board for a 1 hour flight, ridiculous"
"Things were cool. No entertainment or water"
"Flight was delayed."
Pros: "Yes, the crew was amazing and I enjoyed the leg room."
Pros: "Very good"
Cons: "Hope is on time not delay 1 hour that’s all"
Pros: "Lady at the check-in terminal was amazing. Flight staff did a good job."
Cons: "There were several “stretch” seats available for passengers filling three seats next to each other and flight crew refused to let people change seats, even if they were on the same side of the plane (weight distribution). Feel like they could have taken care of the customer better."
Cons: "Flight cancelled"
Pros: "I was very pleased with Captain and crew, very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Seat comfort was the only issue I had."
Pros: "Boarding was quick."
Cons: "The flight was packed and I was seated between two strangers during a pandemic. Very irresponsible. This will affect my decision to fly frontier in the future."
Cons: "Fewer people on the plane during Covid would have been nice"
Cons: "Just was delayed flight was to be at 8:41 and delayed to 1:49am sucked cause was very sleepy lol but other then that all was well thank you!!!"
Cons: "Lost my luggage and ruined my trip."
Pros: "Quick trip."
Cons: "Other passengers. People are really do well on flights these days."
Pros: "Worst trip ever. Will never choose kayak again"
Cons: "Effort. Sitting 5 hours for a 59 min trip sucks"
Pros: "Nothing. Waited 6 and a half hours for a 40 min flight."
Cons: "I should have never taken a chance with Kayak over southwest. Only got a run around and 700% increase in waiting on the tarmac. For 20 dollar savings"
Cons: "Seats that recline."
Cons: "Flight attendants continued to over serve drunk passengers in row 17 18 and 19. Two large parties came into the plane hammered. One spilled a drink on me while his buddies from across the aisle hit me in the eye with an empty liquor bottle screwing around. Another member of their party got up to go to the bathroom while we were landing. Flight attendants did nothing to accommodate me or the other 100 people pissed st the clowns. Last time I fly frontier most likely. I’ll be calling corporate shortly. Like to know why they continued to over serve them?"
Pros: "Modern planes. Good on board crew."
Cons: "2.5 hour delay, no explanation why."
Pros: "Quick boarding, but I think it was just so that they we not fined by the FAA"
Cons: "My flight was delayed over FOUR HOURS! My flight was supposed to take off at 2:53 pm and we didn’t leave SFO until 6:39 pm! I received a text message at 9 am telling me that the flight was delayed until 4:05 pm....okay, no problem, I had not left for the airport yet, so no biggie. At 10:48 am, I received another text that the flight was delayed until 3:35 pm...still not a problem. A couple of minutes later, another text. My flight is now on time. Still no problem, because I usually add in 30 minutes in case Murphy of Murphy’s law shows up and throws a wrench into things. I get to the airport with plenty of time to spare & clear security... then get a new text notification at 2:08 saying that the flight is delayed for FOUR HOURS!!! Are you kidding me? On top of that, the customer service representatives made an announcement that there was a maintenance problem with the original airplane and a new one was enroute to take up the slack. They said this as a statement and offered no apologies or sorry for the inconvenience. They stayed at the check in desk for an hour, and then left and didn’t come bac until 20 minutes before the plane arrived at the gate. I will NEVER fly this airline again!"
Pros: "When I told people I was taking Frontier, they scoffed, rolled their eyes, and joked that I'd have to pay to use the bathroom. Well, it wasn't THAT bad. In fact, I got an assigned seat (in contrast to Southwest). Plane was fairly new, and the seat wasn't too small (then again, not super big). One flight attendant tried to make the atmosphere festive since we were going to Vegas and some people got absolutely shit-faced on the flight. I thought this was kind of cool, but I'm sure some people were annoyed since the drunks got VERY loud. For the price, I would definitely go to Vegas from Indy on Frontier again."
Cons: "1. The guy in charge of the check-in area yelled at one of his employees and humiliated her in front of me. Super awkward. 2. They really do charge for water. OK, I can see charging for a Coke, but water? I thought there was a law saying airlines HAD to provide water on request for health reasons. Then again, I had a huge water bottle from home, so why am I bitching?!"
Pros: "Well, first of all I did not go to Vegas...I ended up going to Detroit instead. I purchased the insurance only to find out you almost have to be dead in order to be able to use it. During my flight to Detroit a passenger had been drinking aboard the plane and police had to come aboard the flight to remove the passenger prior to allowing the other passenger to deplane first. We had to watch that entire ordeal while my loved ones waited at baggage claim to pick me up. The food selection wasn't very appetizing. However, some of the flight attendants were friendly...which made the flight bearable. My relatives fly frontier all the time and recommended I use them and I did, but I'm not sure I'll ever fly frontier again."
Cons: "A lot!"
Cons: "No one at the counter before the flight. Everyone was at the gate. I lost my flight and you wanted to charge me anotyer 100 dollars. And i had ti catch a flight frim Orlando and had ti drive myself there. They lost my baggage as well .first night in vegas was ruined by Frontier Airlines. Did not know that I needed my pool sticks to play ahead of purchase new pool sticks they cost $1,200 and I had a purchase 1 days worth of clothes unreal never experienced anything like this such a horrible Airline"
Pros: "The attractive fare."
Cons: "Long delay on return flight."
Pros: "The initial price was great. The direct flight was fantastic. No wasted airport time."
Cons: "I paid an extra $16 because I thought I had to pay for my seat. It was an emergency aisle so I got more leg room, but my seat didn't recline at all. It was impossible for me to sleep during my 3 1/2 hour flight to Las Vegss. Each bag you brought must be paid for whether it was checked or carry on. My original ticket price was $241. With the $60 bag fee and $16 additional seat fee ( I did not reserve one on the way home, so there was no additional charge for that direction). My total was $317. I would have preferred a larger airline with reclining chairs and free movies."
Pros: "The seats were spacious"
Cons: "When I went to check-in for my flight and get my boarding pass, the Frontier employee at the counter asked if we had paid for carry-on bags online. We said no and she looked at our bags and said we were fine. When we got to the gate however, I was stopped and told that I needed to pay for my bag. I asked to speak to a supervisor. I explained that their employee at check-in told us we did not need to pay for a carry-on. They still forced me to pay AND tried to charge me the gate price of $60 which I refused to pay. If they were going to charge me for a carry-on, they should have made that clear at the ticket counter where I would have paid $45. They were incredibly rude about it and it seemed like a scam they had planned out to try and get $15 more out of passengers."
Pros: "Nothing abt it"
Cons: "I have traveled many places and have NEVER encountered such horrible service in an airport as I did at your Orlando airport / Frontier counter. I checked hours before was in the airport and long lines an hour and 1/2 before flight leaving and due to your Frontier agents at this counter I was unable to board. This happen to more than one passenger in line with me. This agent continued to argue with me rolling her neck and head at me rather than get me to t gate with an available half hour before take off. There was vomit at the counter which they refused to call anyone to come and clean up but overall NO ONE was on task. I will dispute the extra charges I have incurred due to this fiasco and will NEVER fly Frontier Airlines again."
Cons: "They lost the full planes worth of baggage at the arrival in Denver, we waited over an hour and a half for the luggage, while other flights arrived, got their bags and left. Attendant kept coming over the intercom saying they were looking for the bags from our flight. Once on the plane and the doors shut, passengers were not allowed to move to an empty row, because they said we did not pay for other seats in coach, so had to sit cramped in seats while multiple rows were empty or had only one passenger for the 3 seats."
Pros: "Like, it was a first time experience . Notone wewill repeat. First off chrck in was not available until two hours before departure no one was at the counters when issued a ticket from an attendant she acknowledged my carry-on but said there was no fee to pay when called to board the plane the agent told me to go back to the counter and register my carry-on I did not understand and was irritated when we paid a fee of $45 for that carry-on we were able to board no complementary beverages or water were offered on a two hour and 45 minute flight . It seems like and nickeled and dime operation sorry but hard backseats are not the way I want to travel so very mediocre"
Cons: "at 4:30 pm I had a text alert that the flight was delayed by 8 hours yet there was nothing done to replace crew who were going over their max hours. The pilot and both stewardess told different stories. At 1 am in the morning they claimed they were looking for replacements. It is bad enough having a flight canceled and having to drive 840 miles or wait up to 2 days to be rescheduled....but to have blatant lies told was even worse. Then cancel due to weather...when that was not the case..so baggage fees cannot be refunded. The baggage fees were almost as much as the airfare."
Pros: "$49 price for ticket from Pittsburgh to Las Vegas. (WARNING: uncomfortable seat only, doesn't include any baggage)."
Cons: "The seats are very uncomfortable. They are smaller than before and the airline claims they are "pre-reclined." The boarding process is poorly organized (should fill from back to front). The staff is not friendly. Food costs, they claim you can't consume your own alcohol, and they begrudgingly give you water if you press them. When the plan landed at the exact time the pilot predicted 4.5 hours earlier, they told us that we were "early" and kept everyone waiting with seatbelts fastened. In fact the crew frequently abused the seatbelts fastened light during calm air. Don't fly Frontier unless it is severely cheaper; the experience is terrible."
Pros: "The flight was on time and the crew was friendly"
Cons: "The check in process was PAINFUL! The check in staff, only two ladies, were there by 4:30 but could not check in our bags until 5am, resulting in lines. Two staff members for everyone was not enough and one of them kept taking off to do something else, leaving only one person to check in. The Baggage Only line received way more attention, forcing the rest of us to wait longer even through we were line FIRST. You should take direction from Allegaint! I flew from Vegas to Fresno a few days later and their check in service was exceptional!"
Pros: "The efficiency of the boarding process. It was organized and fairly expedient."
Cons: "The exorbitant additional fees. Absolutely absurd to charge for a seat and carry-on luggage in addition to the plane ticket itself. My carry-on suitcase is HALF the size of the traditional size and paying $30 to bring it on the plane is insulting. The chairs were uncomfortable. They don't recline, no head rest, and no blankets were on board which made resting for my 5 hours across the country EXTREMELY uncomfortable. For all the extra fees you'd think a movie and some snack packs might be available. Then again, with the trays too small to fit even my mini iPad, there'd be no place to put them. No in-flight entertainment was a bummer too. I've usually been so happy on Frontier. Bit this experience will keep me from flying Frontier ever again."
Pros: "It was SUPPOSED to be a round trip. I arrived at LAS an hour before departure, and tried a kiosk. It advised me that I needed to see an agent. I get in line. 19 minutes later, I am informed that even though the plane is still at the gate, I missed the 45 minute deadline,and cannot board. The agent will not help me to book another flight, but gives me a paper with an 800 # on it. I am told that all of the next days flights are sold out. I managed to get a $287 flight t 6 am the next day, on a different carrier. When I arrived at Ohare for the return leg, I was charged $40 , for my carryon. When I expressed my displeasure at the charge, I was told that Frontier was a low cost operation and should not be surprised that I would pay more for extras. My response to that is "When did customer service become an extra, for which I should be charged?" I have found your corporation to be an overpriced low service airline, a soulless company intent on squeezing every cent out of each transaction, while providing even less than the bare minimum to the sucker who buys a ticket."
Pros: "We landed safely"
Cons: "The flight crew was atrocious. They were rude when they spoke to us and when I asked for refreshments they turned around as if to get them for me and then the lady sitting next to my husband had to get their attention again to ask a second time if I could have water and Chex Mix so I could take my medicine. I have serious health conditions and I couldn't even get water without paying $3 a bottle. It is disgusting to me that we are charged for flight and then charged for Refreshments during that flight. Any other Airline who charges for a seat to take you to your destination includes at least drinks and nuts for free but not you."
Pros: "The desk agents at San Diego airport were helpful, poor people. I can only imagine the headaches they get from trying to fix Frontier's issues satisfactorily. That is about the only positive thing. Frontier's help phone line was ridiculous and when I finally got a person they were non sympathetic to my issues and completely not helpful."
Cons: "Fair warning: never fly Frontier. My flight from San Diego to Denver and then on to Atlanta was bumped the first day because the plane "broke", which would cause me to miss my connector. The airline put me in a hotel, which was fine (even though I had to pay a $200 security deposit that actually accidentally ended up being $400 and I didn't get back for 4 days). That next morning, I got a text saying my 6:15am flight was delayed by more than an hour, so I called Frontier and asked about my connector times. They told me I would have 10 minutes to disembark the plane and make it to the next gate and, if I did not, I would be stuck in the Denver airport for 12 hours. I asked if that was the case would they put me in a hotel.....they said no. I asked if I changed my flight to the next day would they put me in a hotel....they said no because it was my choice to change the flight (as if that is a choice). Thankfully, I know people in San Diego, so I stayed with them that night. Next morning I take an Uber at 4:30am (at the cost of $30+ dollars) to the airport only to find out that the flight was severely delayed again (no text notice this time from the airline). When I say severely, I mean my 6:15am flight was rescheduled to leave at 10:45am. That would, once again, put me missing my connector. I waited in the line with the 50 other passengers to talk to the desk agent for quite a long time. At first, the agent told me that I would have to wait until the next morning again. I then told him my plight and the events I had already been through. He found a route that would take me at 11:35am from San Diego to Denver then have a 2 hour layover, then fly to San Antonio, then finally get to Atlanta at 12:20am. So, that is me arriving at the airport at 5:00am Sunday morning and getting into Atlanta at 12:20am Monday morning.....over 16 hours with the time change. So, I had to take it. Frontiers way of making up for all of this nonsense? They gave me a $100 voucher to use towards future flights. Basically a worthless piece of paper I will never use."
Cons: "When we checked in at the start of our flight in Denver we were told the flight was cancelled by a very RUDE attendant at the counter even though the reader board showed it was on time. The Frontier person had absolutely no intention in helping and could really care less. Ended up going to the South West counter and the people were great. Frontier should take a lesson form Frontier about customer service. When I book my next flight I will have to be very desperate to use Frontier because of the way I was treated."
Pros: "The flight crew on plane was great."
Cons: "On my flight to Denver, was never mentioned on anything about paying for my carry on. But on the way back to Las Vegas. They stopped us and was very rude about having to pay. Using the "they should have charged you the first time" I think its crazy to be charged for a carry on, if they charged me one way and not the other then i feel someone was not doing their job. But it was how rude the lady manager was when I also only had cash on me. They wanted to charge me an extra $5 to go do a pre paid card. this was 20 mins before flight left. They must get on the same paid either charge both ways or no way. especially $60 per bag"
Cons: "While I am thankful that we made it back to the airport after some mechanical issues. I called Frontier and ask them to get me on a different flight that night or first thing the next morning. They would not help me. They kept telling me I had to talk to the agents in the terminal. There were 200 other people standing in line waiting to be helped. They offered no alternative. Wouldn't even book me with another airline to get me to my destination. The best Frontier customer service on the phone would do was changed my flight to Saturday night. Which did not good since I was coming back from my trip on Sunday."
Pros: "Cheaper than the other airlines."
Cons: "If you don't prepay for your checked bags online, they charge you more at the ticket counter for no reason. The Web site is very buggy and full of errors. It took forever to prepay for our checked bags. We even had to call their online support staff because their Web site is so full of bugs. They also charge even more for a carryon bag than a checked bag -- which is ridiculous -- so the entire overhead bins were empty. Insane. A few of the ticket counter staff were lazy rude utter morons. Others were helpful. The planes seem very old. The seats are uncomfortable and small. No entertainment system. Every little thing has an exorbitant cost -- including coffee or coke -- on a 4 hour flight. It's cheap ---- but not cheap enough for the horrible experience and lack of service and lack of quality or comfort. Buses are much more comfortable."
Pros: "For starters, the Crew was AWESOME !!! An attendant asked if I was military, I wear an Air Force cap my daughter gave me when she graduated. I said no, and explained it was my daughter's and she thanked her for her service and me for supporting her choice. A few minutes later an attendant asked if I would follow her, they had a different seat for me, she said. At first I thought I had the wrong seat. I stand 6ft 3in and about 270 lbs. economy seating is kinda cramped for Me. She directed me to a seat that had knee room and thanked my daughter for her service and me for supporting my daughter's choice to serve Our Country. This action just strenghtens my loyalty to Frontier Airlines and will continue to travel with you all I can. My trips with Frontier Airlines has always been a Good experience. This one was special because Your Crew of Attendants made it Special for Me. They are Real and Professional people. Let them keep doing what they're doing because it's working, for Me anyway. Thank You very Much"
Cons: "Just when you thought airline travel couldn't get worse, Frontier brings you hard seats that don't recline and tray tables about half the size of a sheet of paper. Want a real seat? No problem--pay more. Want what they call a "laptop-friendly" tray table? No problem--pay more. And don't expect to use TSA Pre-check: Frontier doesn't participate. By the time you've paid to bring luggage on your trip--whether checked or carry-on, it costs--you've racked up a cost you could have used to fly a real airline. Pretty soon they'll be charging extra to fly on a plane with wings. And then their website was down all morning when I needed to check in. I used to fly Frontier a lot. Never, never, never, never again."
Pros: "The guy who checked me in at the airport"
Cons: "Is very sneaky and is not easily disclose seats cost of the additional money food cost additional money drinks cost additional money. In addition they charge you for not only bringing your bag to be checked but to bring a bag on the plane. They do not do anybody any good to not disclose that when booking the flight in large font or a pop up window before you officially book. We sat on the runway at the Denver international airport for over an hour once we landed again completely irritating and dissatisfied!"
Cons: "We waited an hour on the tarmac for a gate to open. It took another 90 minutes for them to get the checked bags to the carousel. Frontier's excuse was that they usually have 8 people to unload the plane, that day they only had one. Frontier is too cheap to hire people and expects customers to tolerate their operational inefficiency. No one at Frontier showed any form of customer service skills and refused to grant any concessions to delayed, angry customers. In fact, the luggage supervisor called security because she angered the customers so much. To sum up, f*** Frontier and I cannot wait for their inevitable chapter 11 filing."
Pros: "We arrived in Las Vegas 20 minutes early."
Cons: "1.) We sat on the runway in Vegas for 15 minutes waiting for a gate to open. 2.) They charged me to select a seat. 3.) They charged me to CARRY ON a bag ($45!) 4.) They don't participate in TSA Pre-check 5.) There was no organized line-up for each separate boarding group. 6.) I was seated next to a baby that screamed for 3 of the first 4 hours flight time w/o flight attendants doing anything to help the dumb-ass dad who neglected to bring a freaking binky w/him! I guess maybe I'm just spoiled by the FAR SUPERIOR service of Southwest Airlines. Last time I let someone else book my flight on another airline!"
Cons: "Frontier's baggage policy is such a rip off and comparatively over priced. They allow 1 checked bag for 40$ whereas American Airlines and others charge 25$ a bag. For carry on items Frontier charges 60$(!) We were two passengers with each allowed a carry on item. After paying for our 2 bags, we were about to board when the lady at the boarding gate insisted on having us pay for our carry on ( whilst they clearly say one carry on item per person ). We were threatened with being kicked off the flight if we didn't pay for the carry on. Other passengers were also subjected to this behaviour. Never flying Frontier again. Rude boarding attendant, and a rip off baggage policy."
Pros: "There was a 5 minute delay, but they did fine getting us there in plenty of time."
Cons: "First time flying Frontier, and the plane itself is very uncomfortable. Tray tables are too small to do anything with, and the seats are very thin and hard and do not move at all. The armrests were also super uncomfortable, but when you try to move them back, they still straight up so you can't be comfortable. The crew wasn't very personable like more famous airlines. Everyone seemed pretty unhappy to be there and talked minimally. You have to pay for your bags, food, and drink. No entertainment available to judge."
Pros: "The attitude of the flight crew is very negative and unfriendly. They do not try to make their customers feel safe, comfortable and delighted with their flight experience but just the opposite. There was one crew member at the self check in machines who was so rude and touched me on my shoulder because he was frustrated of me not knowing how things work with the self check in,"
Cons: "Everything. Spirit Airlines are not a good flight company."
Pros: "Crew very nice"
Cons: "SEATS they do not recline!"
Pros: "Staff was attentive and happy"
Cons: "I could not sit comfortably, no rooms for my legs. My knees were either in the back of the person in front of me or side saddled into the aisle."
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"
Cons: "Mediocre airline! You get what you pay for. 6 hours delayed flight! Uncomfortable seats and poor customer service"
Pros: "Arrived early"
Cons: "Better process for monitoring of boarding zones Not to pay regular seats"
Pros: "Itvwas a great ! The steward & stewardess coukd be a littke friendlier. They should get a lesson from the gentleman from the boarding area. I should have gotten his bane."
Cons: "The staff at the biarding gate. Ge was very oleasan & friendly! Love the Leg room! I was comfortable."
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: "Absolute confusion as flights were delayed. Gate agent threatened do call the cops on me after I pressed him, firmly but politely, on why I was given different information by three different agents"
Pros: "I had my doubts because of the reviews online but as long as your prepared everything is set. The reason why they’re so cheap is because they charge you extra for luggage and you have to read their guidelines online to understand. Overall it was a good flight, I ran into no problems at all and they were all very nice."
Cons: "They diverted to Minneapolis half an hour before landing in Detroit because a flight attendant was wasted and was throwing up, meanwhile they lied blaming it on the weather and of course they wouldn’t send us on any other airline , so I missed my work appointment in Detroit, spent basically 36 hours in the airport ( the next flight was delayed also, of course)"
Cons: "The service, the non communication, cancel our flight with no explanation, service in handeling all of this. Will never fly spirit EVER AGAIN"
Pros: "Nothing about this flight"
Cons: "The flight was an hour late leaving and made me check my carry on bag which made me miss my connecting flight and not make it home for christmas. Cost me more to get another flight and lose the money for my original flight and my flight home. It was a complete emotional and financial burden for me. Will not fly spirit again and not sure how Kayak could help resolve the cost."
Pros: "Nothing, at first how cheap it was, but one quickly realizes you get what they paid for."
Cons: "The fact that they blamed the weather for their in ability to land, but the reality is that the airline is so cheap they don't carry enough fuel to be able to give it another go at landing in Las Vegas. We were literally only about 15 20 feet from landing at our destination when the pilot decided to speed up and give it another go. But then they gave us some b.s. about how their gate was taken and they had no other available gates, but then they blamed the weather. Wish they could get their story straight. Anyway, the airline just stranded us in Los Angeles, which is even weirder since we took off from San Diego..."
Cons: "Allowed to have a carry-on from San Diego charged for it in Las Vegas"
Cons: "Delayed flight and without any additional information they cancelled the flights got leaving people with ton of questions unanswered"
Cons: "I arrived to the airport on time. I did not see any marked kiosks so although I wasn't checking any bags, I got in line. I saw kiosks along the front of the counter that weren't being used, but I waited patiently in line. After about 10-15 minutes, the lady behind the counter tells everyone that there are kiosks (unmarked) behind us. I walk back to the kiosk and it tells me that I have not checked in on time. (Apparently, the cut off ended like 5 minutes prior.......while I was waiting in line). I figured it wasn't a big deal because I still had plenty of time to check in and make it to the gate. NOPE They wouldn't even check me in to let me TRY to make the flight I paid for. It was their "policy". So even if I could have made it through security and to the gate more than 15 mins prior when they close the gate to the plane (Which I 100% could have made it), they wouldn't issue me a boarding pass. So I missed my flight and had to spend $200 to buy a flight on another airline. I asked to speak to a manager. They made me wait 45 minutes to speak to somebody. He told me I was a "no-show" for the flight.... even though i was there the whole time including prior to their 45 minute rule. They were unsympathetic to my frustration and seemed smug and slightly amused at my frustration. Overall this airline is trash. It amazes me that they still can't figure out very basic customer service issues. And they wonder why people are fed up with airline service. It's not like we aren't all spending hundreds of dollars on these flights... oh wait, yes we are. Don't be fooled by their cheap fares. They are making money by implementing a bunch of other fees and rules to screw people out of their money. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THAT YOU SPEND A LITTLE BIT MORE TO MAKE SURE YOU ARENT GOING TO GET TAKEN ADVANTAGE OF BY THIS AIRLINE. Oh and by the way, I wasn't the only one this happened to on my flight. There were at least 3-4 other groups in the same boat. So it wasn't just a one-time thing that happened to me. I very much got the impression that this is a conversation they have all the time. I'd love to know how much money they have kept from people who never got to take their flight."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Flight was hours late. Spirit airlines charged 50$s per carry on unless it was a tiny purse. plane smelled like puke. Staff was not too friendly or efficient. Next time we will just drive. It will be faster, cheaper, and nicer."
Pros: "Surprisingly more comfortable than I expected for a budget airline. Staff was also nicer and better than expected."
Cons: "I understand that minimalism and individual costs for each aminity is how they keep the initial cost down but $3 dollars for even a glass of water is pushing that concept a little far."
Pros: "The original flight cost was comparatively inexpensive, but when considering what I got and didn't get for the price, not really."
Cons: "I was charged $57 for a CARRY ON! Whaaat?! That's ridiculous. Most airlines don't charge you that for a CHECKED bag. And the worst part was, when I asked why my daughter didn't have to pay for her carry-on (a backpack), she told me that it was because it was a backpack, and that if I'd have had a duffle bag or some other type of tote, I would not have been charged. REALLY?! How does that make sense? I shoudl have asked her for one of those plastic bags and put my stuff in there! Good fodder for a comic, to be sure. And I will be sure to spread the word about this to all I know. Spirit SUCKS."
Pros: "Crew was funny"
Cons: "Flight was delayed BOTH ways and i got an email hours after I landed stating so. Hate the luggage requirements. Probably won't be using them again"
Cons: "It's advertised as "cheap" but by the time you pay for the seat, luggage, etc., you end up paying more than other airlines."
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that they wouldn't just let me trade in my ticket for another time. I'm sure they could have given my seat to a standby passenger. I was way to sick to get on a plane and nobody would have wanted me on the plane either. So I paid for a ticket and it just got wasted. You should at least have a program where people can donate their seat. Just a suggestion"
Cons: "Unexpected fees at baggage 55 dollars for a carry on i would have rather paid for a more expensive flight with free carry on also it said nothing about checking a bag on the reservation and a rude flight crew. They were talking about people on the flight in a rude way. Overall terrible experience and will never fly with spirit again"
Cons: "Two passengers had the same seat assigned on their boarding pass. Response of the crew: oh, yeah, this happens all the time. Why don't you stand in the back." The man in the seat assigned next to me was too obese to put the armrest down. I was joined standing in the back with the other gentleman whose seat had been assigned to somebody else. Resolutions to issues were the responsibility of the passengers while the crew stood idly by."
Cons: "We missed our flight because of an accident on the highway. When we got to the check in counter we had already checked in online), they wouldn't print our boarding passes. The plane wasn't supposed to to depart for another 20 min. They refused anyway, and they wouldn't book us on another flight. We took flew southwest home."
Pros: "I liked absolutely nothing about this airline to the point where I didn't even fly with them the day of my flight"
Cons: "They were not willing to work with me to change my flight date do to a family emergency and couldn't give me credit towards further flights, goes to show how broke this airline is if they really need the money and couldn't refund me like other past and BETTER airlines have done in the past, I will NEVER fly this airline ever again and have told many people to do the same, this was my first and last experience. As a side note I had to DRIVE MYSELF TO LAS VEGAS FROM SAN DIEGO because they were not willing to work with me but I still made it to and from my destination"
Pros: "TSA did not accept Spirit's boarding pass on the smart phone. I had to go back to a ticketing terminal to print a boarding pass, get back in the long line, and clear security."
Cons: "Support electronic boarding pass like all other airlines."
Cons: "Flight kept getting delayed, then after 8 hours they cancelled the flight. Stood in line for 2 hours with terrible and slow service just to find out the next flight out was in 13 hours. They didn't give out any hotel vouchers only a few meal vouchers. So I spent a total of 20 hours sitting on uncomfortable airport seats and no sleep waiting for the flight. I had lost a day that I could have been working. All service was poor and the company is cheap on everything. They're so cheap that they can't even serve complimentary soda and water like a normal airline. This is supposed to be a economical flight but really with all of the fees tacked on its about the same as costlier airlines if not more."
Pros: "The crew was all wonderful. You've hired great people!"
Cons: "You charge for carry on bags and snacks and drinks in flight?!?! And the try tables for the back few rows were too tiny to use for anything! I felt like I was tricked into booking with a low fare, and then you nickle and dime everything to make up the difference... Also, BOTH of my flights were delayed..."
Pros: "flight was quick and safe and on time, even early, boarding was orderly, crew was efficient price was cheap"
Cons: "difficulty getting an online boarding pass, had to join a club to get it, this was not explained in answers to questions. seats are cramped, no room for legs. had to pay for any extras including carry-on and even water."
Pros: "First time flying spirit to Las Vegas and it was actually pretty pleasant compared to word of mouth from a Friend. Flight attendant Sandra was funny and entertaining."
Cons: "I didn't like the fees associated with everything. Luckily, my husband drove up a few days before so I had sent all my stuff with him and only had my purse to avoid additional carry on or luggage charges."
Pros: "The crew was funny knowing the seats weren't the most comfortable they played"
Pros: "The seat and leg room seemed better than average. The rate for the flight was reasonable,"
Cons: "Well this was my first flight with Spirit. Since I went with a 3rd party vendor I didn't know the luggage fees or how they worked. So of course I spent more than I should have if I had known how to handle. In fact I could have planned different and maybe not spent the very pricey fees for the carry-on I used. So I guess the goal is to avoid them or minimize them by purchasing early when you book your flight. Like I said it was my first time so I definitely wasted money due to lack of knowledge on how those fees are done. My guess is many persons flying the first time can & do get stung by those fees when they didn't know how they work & the charges!"
Pros: "The cheapness of the tickets was very cheap"
Cons: "Not über comfortable, but worth the price!"
Cons: "I booked with spirit for my girls trip this year... The flight from houston ti san diego delayed 6 times then cancelled. This happened on a tuesday and i was told the next flight was on saturday. I also had another flight booked that Thur.. My whole vacation ruined because of spirit... Do NOT FLY Spirit... Also i got notifications on Thursday that there was a delay from san diego to vegas... Horrible airline!!!! Never again"
Pros: "Friendly staff, let me get on the plane even though I was running very late."
Pros: "the initial price for the flight"
Cons: "paying for seats,,the outrageous price for luggage,,waiting 40 minutes before they turned the seat belt sign off only to have it turned back on within 5 minutes. Even though the attendants were up and serving drinks in the aisle, they were turning people back to their seat that wanted to use the bathroom, while other passengers were allowed to get up and go to the bathroom. There was no turbulence and we had reached our cruising altitude. When the seat belt sign was turned off, we were warned that it would only be off for minutes because it was going to be turned back on for the descent. Will never fly Spirit again, lesson learned."
Cons: "After the entire computer system of spirit shut down, we sat on a cold floor for 3 hours waiting for it to come back up. The staff was kind and apologized for this problem, but we were offered nothing throughout this whole process. After finally boarding for the short flight from San Diego to Las Vegas, we sat on the runway for a long period of time. Then because of the weather, this short flight turned into 2 hours instead of 1. I understand that things happen, but something like credit or anything of value for the inconvenience would have been highly appreciated by all of us."
Cons: "Spirit will nickel and dime you for every little thing possible. And if you have to modify your flight, be prepared to pay $120.00. I had to modify my flight and ended up paying for two round trip flights cause of how much they charge to modify your flight. Worse airline on the market. I'd rather drive a car to my next destination than book with spirit again. I will not be booking with them ever again!!!"
Cons: "this might have been my mistake I did not arrive 45 minutes prior to departure I was 6 minutes past the 45-minute line and they would not let me board the plane..I asked 4 times to talk to a manager all I kept hearing where she was at lunch and she would be down in a bit I waited for almost 30 minutes before I decided just go catch another plane on Southwest to Vegas kayak might want to inform all of their customers dealing with spirit Airlines that the 45-minute cutoff point is crucial...one of the problems is and I received a email from you the day before that it was moved to a different terminal so at the San Diego Airport even the people that work there didn't know where the Spirit Airlines was and there was 5 people behind me who had the same issue and this Airline will not work with us then they tell me it's too late the plan is already full...I did fly back from Vegas on spirit but what I thought was kind of bizarre with people still boarding the plane five minutes prior to takeoff...next time I go to Vegas I might just pay the extra money and Fly Southwest ...and besides that that plane coming back from Vegas did not sell mechanically strong it made all kinds of noises when we landed and everybody was even looking around like something was going to fall off the plane when we landed in San Diego"
Pros: "when we landed safely"
Cons: "Shysters of the not-so-friendly skies! As a loyal #AlaskaAirlines customer, I hesitated before buying tickets on Spirit from San Diego to Vegas. After finding an online "deal" for Spirit, maybe $100 less expensive and a convenient flight time, I bought them. Spirit should be heavily fined, if not shut down, for their dishonesty. Upon check in, there was a surprise $55 fee per checked bag and $100 FEE PER CARRY ON bigger than a purse EACH WAY. No cash was accepted at the check in, gate or in-flight. This was not a problem for us, but felt bad for any person who forgot theirs. Once on the plane, Spirit charges $3 per water, soda or juice (inc $3 per refill). Cheap snacks started at $3 per small courtesy size though $7 per "luxury item" of cup-o-soup noodles. Icing on the cake of poop experience was our airline server. Shocked in to tears of laughter, the woman with the beverages walked up and barked "what do you want?!" To our row. I asked to buy the Moscow mule. She said, "where is your card? If it is not out of your wallet now I am going walking away. Other people want drinks and I don't have time for you to get out your wallet!" LOL!! I gave it to her, then she barked a similar rant at the nice people sitting next to me. NEVER, EVER will I fly Spirit again. The charges alone are so dishonest but the service is awful too."
Cons: "Spirit Airlines was no help and didn't offer any alternatives for us at all."
Cons: "When I checked my bag, the baggage representative assured me that even though I checked my baggage late, she assured me that my baggage would get to Oakland that day. Then on the flight, a flight attendant told me my suitcase might not make it to Oakland unless I got off the plane and got onto a flight that arrived in Oakland at 11. I had an interview in Ukiah the next morning at 9:00, so I explained to the flight attendants and baggage representatives that I would be screwed if my luggage did not arrive in Oakland. My bag did make it but it was a constant struggle to get honest information, let alone any information out of Spirit staff, who gave me a heart attack for no reason."
Cons: "We were not informed of a delay until 30 minutes AFTER our designated flight time. Flight attendants were inattentive and unprofessional"
Pros: "Nothing other than the fake price when purchasing a ticket"
Cons: "Everything else! You have to pay 45 for a carry on and 100 for a checked bag!? And if that isn't outrageous enough, you have to pay for a seat! Yes a seat! Your ticket purchase is nothing more than the beginning of fees and getting nickled and dimed everywhere. That was my first time flying Spirit and I will never do it again. I am United Club Card holder and only took this flight because it was so 'cheap' in reality I could have flown with United for less. That spirit stays in business is mind boggling unless their business model is to get every person to fly with them once, then they have a perfect strategy."
Cons: "They cancelled the flight right as I got to the airport and my ride left. And they don't partner with other airlines so the only option u had was to fly the next day or get a refund. Not good if u have to be somewhere on a certain day."
Pros: "Nothing about my experience was pleasant. I had to pay for luggage and an assigned seat. So the cost of the ticket was a lie. The flight got delayed 2 hours on my way to Vegas. Other airlines provide free bags to military members. The return flight was delayed 2.5 hours so I purchased a separate ticket from another airline. By the time I got through checking my luggage, and security I received another text message delaying the Spirit flight another hour. I was out 166.00 for flying AA, but it was worth every penny."
Cons: "I tried to check in online and they wanted a password which I didn't have and I click on multiple times to reset my password and was never send the email to reset it. Then I went to the airport and the lady at the counter could not find me in the system for that flight so I was unable to get on because it was full. Offered me another flight but was to late in the day because I was only in Vegas for 1 night to visit family from Ireland. In short I missed my trip and ended up paying for a hotel room and flight I never got to use. This is the 2nd time in one year this has happened (last was Delta using Alaska for a flight from Bend to Portland) Alaska counter when the extra mile to make sure I made that flight. So the question is, is the problem the airlines or Kayak ? used Kayak for along time and have had no trouble before but this not good customer service. Thank you, Kenneth"
