Got me from A to B. I like Alaska Air, that’s why so fly them.

Pros: "I think collectively the crew tried harder and worked together. Also, I cannot remember. A flight in recent memory that was 30 minutes EARLY!"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Very punctual."
Cons: "friendlier flight crew. we choose to fly alaska for the “friendlier staff” unfortunately they were not friendly or helpful. traveling with 2 small children alone is hard in itself."
Pros: "Crew was good and pilot had a fun personality."
Pros: "The crew was very pleasant about a sticky situation."
Pros: "no, I had to sit in a middle Seat but that's because everyone loves flying alaska"
Pros: "Timing! Everything was perfectly on time!"
Cons: "Having my seat moved to a middle seat and getting sandwiched between 2 linebackers that elbowed me the whole time. Was super."

Cons: "Theres nothing i dont like about Alaska"
Pros: "Liked having on board entertainment on the Virgin plane since it’s not something Alaska offers."
Cons: "None of the flight attendants were very friendly, no one greeted us as we got on the plane and not one greeted us when we deplaned. A little snippy when handing out drinks, I asked about the food I ordered & she replied “I only handle drinks”. Never had anything but pleasant flight attendants on Alaska that truly seemed happy to be at work. The three on Virgin seemed we were a bother to them."
Cons: "Flight was delayed."
Pros: "Free texting"
Pros: "Kayak is the best"
Cons: "None"
Pros: "Alaska is my absolute favorite airline. On time, courteous, a fair mileage plan, nice planes. Unfortunately I have to take them out of SeaTac."
Cons: "SeaTac is the worst airport in the entire country in my experience. Two examples why: 1. When I arrived this morning at 5am there was already a nearly hour long security line. 2. Upon our early arrival from California, SeaTac doesn’t have a gate for us, so we burn time and fuel on the tarmac. Like usual. One trip to any other airport and you have an appreciation for how DREADFUL SeaTac is on the whole. Some great people, but a poorly run poorly managed monstrosity of a disfinctional airport."

Boarding was uncomplicated and there was enough space for carry on items. Loved that they offer wifi throughout the flight and free messaging (in case you don't need full internet access). Will definitely consider flying with Alaska Airlines again!"
Pros: "SeaTac was fabulous with my wheelchair. Thanks you"
Cons: "When I was picked up for my wheelchair in John Wayne airport, there was some short in the wheelchair that was causing a burning to my thigh. The person was totally unhelpful and I finally had to walk to my gate."

Pros: "I liked that you could buy snacks on the flight. Really like the Alaska magazine lots of interesting articles. Wish i had taken a copy witth me..."
Cons: "They started boarding really early... 50 minutes before wheels up. I just happened to be near the gate. So I got on when my group was called... barely. They had the plane loaded and buttoned up by 8pm!!!! For an 8:20pm departure...yikes. what happens if you weren't near gate??? Miss flight?"

Pros: "Friendly staff! Prompt service."
Cons: "No free drinks"
Pros: "Price"
Cons: "n/A"
Cons: "I like Alaska airlines, just not the flight last night. Something was wrong with the engine and we were sitting there forever. They should have checked the engine before boarding everyone. We were sitting there with no A/C and then they had to turn the power off. They tried and tried to fix the problem but it didn't work. Then everyone had to get off the plane and there were not enough seats the next flight and no other flights that night at that airport. We had to change the airport for am flights or fly out the next day. They offered to change the tickets but nothing else. Some passengers had to pay for taxicab and hotel for the night by themselves."
Pros: "Crew was amazing. Very attentive and welcoming."
Cons: "Crew was abrasive and put off by people asking for service. Monitors had to be rebooted 3 times. Ran out of water and snacks."
Pros: "Super comfortable and inflight entertainment was amazing"
Cons: "A/C was not working well, cabin was too warm and stuffy. Long delay on take off. Can not hear and understand pilot through PA system."

Cons: "Nothing honestly"
Cons: "Flight was delayed a bit due to a couple passenger booking/misc issues. 1st class didn’t get gate bevfood service. Oven was busted so my meal wasn’t available. Entertainment console had all channels functional except — not really an issue I just really wanted to have ESPN playing in the background"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Crew was amazing"

Cons: "Delayed 3 hours"
Pros: "Entertainment options were very good"
Cons: "Plane was too warm,"
Pros: "The movies offered were decent"
Cons: "I paid extra for a window seat I sit down after they squeezed us all in like sardines and come to my surprise there is no window in my aisles it had been covered up in plastic . First making my area narrow than all the other seats and between the plane leaving late and the terrible process of loading people on the plane . Delta airlines was all about the up sale from charging for every bag to charging for internet ,food so on and so forth. Also one bathroom in the middle of the plane ? REALLY ? Out of tissue , paper towels , and tissue one hour into the flight . What in the Hell is going on with this airline ? Won’t fly with them again ."
Pros: "very fast boarding , attentive , and easy to figure out"
Cons: "seats cushions"
Pros: "Good snacks. Nice crew. Nice seats."
Cons: "Pay WiFi? JetBlue does it for free.."
Pros: "The FA’s and pilot"
Cons: "I love the flight becayse it was smooth sailing and delta is always choice."
Cons: "The flight was 2.5 hours late making me miss my connecting flight and I didn’t receive a refund for the comfort seats I paid for but didn’t get."
Cons: "They changed the gate twice on me and by the time I got to the correct one, the flight had already left."
Cons: "My friend and I was switched to an even worse seating when boarding. Very uncomfortable especially for my friend since he had crutches."
Pros: "Surprised to see the hostess serving food on a domestic flight. Were courteous when we were sitting on the tarmac for 3 hrs waiting for clearance."
Cons: "Folks at the boarding counter were rude. Had one bag as a carry on, and was forced to check it in. Whereas saw other folks stow their two personal items in the overhead cabin."
Pros: "We boarded quickly, in zones. Staff were professional and courteous."
Cons: "Perhaps more than just 2 episodes of some TV programs eg Goldrush. Also more current shows."
Pros: "Good movie choices"
Cons: "Too cramped. No leg room"
Pros: "Zones are more delineated."
Cons: "People were obviously cutting in line and edging up before their zones were called."
Pros: "Staff were friendly and boarding was and getting off was easy because flight was super empty. Timeliness was appreciated too."
Cons: "Seats don't recline far enough."
Pros: "No puedo opinar mucho del proceso de abordaje, ya que para el procedimiento de ingreso a la terminal fue bastante tardado. Pero la atencion por parte del personal fue bastante amable, las bebidas fueron abundantes y justas."
Cons: "I have no complaints"
Cons: "Plane too warm."
Pros: "A pretty well-run flight, till we landed and waited on the tarmac for a gate. Otherwise, uneventful. Lunch was decent. Crew was good."
Pros: "We had terrible turbulence for probably 4 of the nearly 5 hour flight. The turbulence were the Pitts, but the plane, amenities, staff and amenities were top nothcj! Highly recommende Delta."
Cons: "Bad turbulence"
Pros: "Free meals and entertainment"
Cons: "Can someone please improve airline food?!"
Pros: "great flight - easy and quick as always"
Cons: "the power on the plane didn't work and there was no entertainment"
Pros: "We upgraded to Delta Comfort, since the flight was a bit longer. I'm glad we did; it made a great deal of difference to have the extra space. The in-flight entertainment (individual displays on the backs of each seat) was excellent, the crew was excellent, and the flight was extremely smooth."
Pros: "Ease of it all!"
Cons: "The jerk behind me who kept kicking my seat and kept coughing obnoxiously like he had never been on a plane"
Pros: "Nice crew. Clean cabin."
Cons: "My outlet didn't work and it made it impossible to make the most of the internet I purchased."
Pros: "Getting to the correct destination."
Cons: "The fact that the lack of knowledge regarding international travel visas by the counter staff and supervisor meant that two days of the vacation were lost. Upon arrival in China the 144 hour travel visa was granted with no problem within minutes, but the U.S. staff was completely befuddled by the possibility. The interrogation was completely stressful and resulted in a reschedule of the original flight and during the second attempt at flying even an email from the U.S. consulate with a link to the Shanghai/Chinese government immigration site was deemed "not official enough". i will be expecting proper compensation. I was once given an $850 travel voucher for voluntarily giving up my seat, and was flown first class to Hawaii, given 4 star accomodation and then flown first class on to China within 48 hours. This was an involuntary bump from our chosen flight time, all because of a lack of knowledge about current visa regulations and international law on the part of the check in staff. We have been loyal Delta users for over 15 years, and this was the biggest blunder ever. Also humiliating and extremely frustrating, stressful and a big problem with fulfilling our travel plans between son and father."
Pros: "The seats were the widest with the most cushion and padding I've ever had on any flight, I think all their seats were like that. The plane we were on had more leg room than your average flight. Also the backs of the chair were very tall, leaving even mpre head room perfect for tall people . I fly a lot and sometimes my knees hit the seat in front of me or when they recline it shoves the tray to close to you. Not on this flight there was enough room for me to lay back in the seat had the adjustable headrest that went up and down and also curved in to hold your head from falling on your neighbor next to you. Love the fact they had the USB plug-in in front of you. And the crew constantly kept coming through to empty trash and offer beverages. The plane was clean bathrooms in front and back of the airplane. Over all quiet engine and we were above the wings. Temperature good."
Cons: "The crew member that was checking in people at the gate would talk so fast we could barely understand what he was saying on the overhead announcement. I was traveling with someone who was hearing impaired so we were unaware of that they were getting ready to board. The electronic TV monitor wasn't updating to say boarding to notify people that would be helpful for the hearing impaired. Or--if a crew member is muffled on the announcement or talks too fast you can't understand or know what's going on. The most frustrating thing for me and my daughter we were both expecting to use Delta online entertainment. There are no monitor screens in the seats in front of us on this plane. So we were able to use our phones, but it would not download and once It finally downloaded we couldn't upload any of the movies. Connection speed way too slow. The warning said there were too many people on it at that time. Also I like it when they offer free headphones for people that don't have them. An example that would benefit people that don't want to listen to loud people on the plane or babies that are crying."
Pros: "The flight attendants were so nice and accomadating. Even came by to refill our waters! I've never been on a flight with such friendly flight attendants!"
Pros: "Service was ok food also crew was friendly"
Cons: "Check in bags and carry on policy and space on airplane is stupid"
Pros: "entertainment system included lots of good choices and free. Crew attentive and friendly. Fairly comfortable seating. Boarding was quick (with Delta Amex card). Several snack choices instead of just the old standby of pretzels."
Cons: "Captain not at door to greet passengers as they left - usually a given."
Pros: "I liked the service. It was incredible."
Cons: "I did not like the delay or the continued delay on the runway"
Pros: "Seat was comfortable, easy access to entertainment, charging station at the chair, staff made accommodation for vegetarian meal"
Cons: "Maybe this is a China issue and not the airline but I wasn't able to bring an unopened bottle of water that I purchased in the security area. This made the 10 hour flight very uncomfortable as I went hours without water. Also, use of iPad for reading books wasn't allowed after the flight was established, I'm not sure who came up with these regulations but after spending a month on various flights in Asia, this was the only flight where I encountered these issues. Also, there was no vegetarian option in economy. Fortunatly, the staff brought a left over dinner from business class but I find it hard to believe that flight to the US would not have a vegetarian option."
Pros: "Bags arrived on the belt quickly"
Cons: "Why is there not saying precheck to use after you've been funneled through customs? ATL is advanced enough to have kiosk for arrival, even for those confused and not with global entry, but then forces you to wait in security line instead of the typically faster tea precheck line. Every minute I'm in line, I'm not spending money"
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "The delta comport seats were not comfort seats were hardly comfortable and the leg room wasn't worth paying for."
Cons: "Enforce your baggage size and number limits. A significant number of passengers take bags onboard that are oversized."
Pros: "Having window seat"
Cons: "Everything was fine"
Cons: "Second flight was sold out and it was hot inside the plane the entire time."
Pros: "Sadly, nothing"
Cons: "Big bulky guy next to me insisted on using all of the armrest, all the time. Crew only greeted white passengers with a smile - which is something I'm noticing in many Delta flights (don't see that happen on Virgin or Alaska) I could see the luggage handlers throwing each bag onto the conveyor belt like they had a personal vendetta against each bag. They made an extra effort to toss each bag IN THE AIR so it lands with a thud. Seriously apalling!"
Pros: "Everything was great"
Pros: "On time flight"
Cons: "Gate agent at SF was rude and unprofessional. While waiting, gate agent at gate 65, flight 647 started the following, “group 1 boarding, group 2 boarding...everybody, let’s go let’s go”. She went on to call out one, Hispanic customer with limited English, “come here, you can board now”, rude rude."
Cons: "Some kind of compensation to cover the missed shuttle and my time."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Staff and entertainment"
Cons: "Comfort, seats felt tight"
Pros: "Very kind crew"
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "They delayed our flight 4 times, over 4 hours, told us the flight moved to a gate that didn’t exist, gave us erroneous information about alternate flights, assigned 3 different planes that needed maintenance, and then we waited over 2 hours to talk with a supervisor. I finally had them rebook me on Alaska Airlines (the best)."
Pros: "Good boarding"
Cons: "Delay and no food or movies"
Pros: "Not a lot to say really from a positive, In Europe if we had to fly over 4 hours the airlines put on larger planes, this plane was small for a 6+ flight"
Cons: "Small plane for a 6+ hour flight, food is . sub standard, if you want to watch the onboard entertainment you need to do so from you phone or Ipad, you need their app installed first and flash player, if not your screwed. They allow you to download their flash player but it does not work."
Cons: "In Osaka I was not able to get a boarding pass for this last leg. In SF United and Air China were both not able to give me a boarding pass because I was not listed in their system. I have no idea why. Very frustrating."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "After the entire flight was boarded & ready to go the plane had a mechanical issue before take off. Had to sit on the plan for 90 minutes before we were allowed to exit the plane. No other flights available For family of three until 3 days later! Had to demand to be transferred to another airline so my family & I can go home the next morning. Overall stuck in SNA airport for 8 hours. Didn’t get a refund for baggage, instead was given meal vouchers for the airport in the morning. United did provide hotel for the night but nothing special. United staff where nice to make the best of the situation."
Cons: "Small plane. Pay to play movies. Dated entertainment options."
Pros: "Staff was very good at their job/duties."
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable and cramped."
Pros: "They gave us free food and free movies in order to try to make up for the huge confusion/hassle."
Cons: "My gate was changed twice and the flight was delayed by almost two hours because the plane we were supposed to take was out of service."
Pros: "It was a short flight"
Cons: "I didn’t like not having to choose our seat assignments after we booked our flight. I have used Kayak on many occasions and I was able to choose my seat after booking. I was not able to do that after I booked my flight."
Pros: "Quiet and calm smooth flight"
Cons: "It was cold in cabin at first."
Cons: "I was not able to sit with my husband and the man next to me drank a a bunch of red wine and the attendant brought him whiskey after that until he passed out with his baby over my lap."
Pros: "I was supposed to be the volunteer for overbooking problem, but the ground attendent helped me by arranging a seat for me. If she didn't do that, I would miss my next international flight. I'd like to say thanks here!"
Pros: "Good leg room"
Cons: "Had ro pay for entertainment"
Cons: "This flight was also late, and this was after having to spend the night in the airport"
Pros: "Staff was friendly and helpful"
Cons: "I'm signed up to get notified of changes to my flight. The gate got changed and I wasn't sent an email or text update. I'm a bit confused as to what constitutes as a"flight change update" , if a gate change doesn't qualify."
Cons: "Crew member working at the gate told the lady next to me "get in line if you'd like to complain" regarding the continuous delays. Crew member let us know that united was aware of our delay ed take of 4:05 rather than 1:00pm several hours before yet, We were only informed through notifications in increments of 30 minutes. be transparent with your customers, the delay would have been much less frustrating had we known. Instead notifications every 30mins were teasing us that we're about to leave but it's clear united had not intention of taking off. Also crew member on board serving beverages "I need your money" is an extremely unprofessional and inappropriate way to ask for a card."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "That my return flight was canceled with no notification after I missed my first flight. I ended up getting a new flight and was never informed that my return flight was cancelled there for when I got to the airport to return home I had to buy another $600 ticket. After buying a new ticket when I missed my first flight (my fault, I know) but I really think I should be compensated for this inconvenience and the lack of notifying me whatsoever."
Cons: "We were in first class first row, the crew kept talking and laughing during the entire flight (this is a 5 hours flight and we landed at 5am). Loud and banging the trolleys (why, everyone is trying to sleep!). We asked them to not speak as loud, but to no avail.... asking for a glass a water was a no no, you could clearly see they were not there to help you... The entertainment system was a vintage tiny TV which did not work well anyway (loss of image...). The seat was half broken. Not sure where the first class experience was. United please do something... Start first with your employees. Send them to Southwest for training..."
Cons: "I thought it was ridiculous you had to pay to watch tv despite there being a monitor in each seat. That was the first time I've encountered that on a flight."
Cons: "No wifi... with the amount you pay for the flight, seems insane you have to pay for wifi too"
Cons: "Both flights were delayed, and was charged a $200 oversized baggage fee for a bag that actually isn't oversized according to the measurements on the United website"
Pros: "safe"
Cons: "They where late coming for about 30 minutes and going back it was late 3 hours. very frustrating for picks."
Cons: "Staff was not overly friendly and carried few smiles."
Pros: "Upgraded me to a bulkhead seat to accommodate my 6ft 4 inch frame!"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Airport not crowded. Efficient boarding!"
Pros: "The morning cookie was good."
Cons: "It was dirty."
Pros: "The crew was polite and accommodating."
Cons: "After zone 2, no passengers were allowed to carry on the allotted amount of luggage. Boarding took a long time, passengers were rude, and the gat agents didnt notify anyone of the flight status until 30 minutes before boarding time. This changed three times."
Cons: "The check-in staff was dismissive and unhelpful when I arrived past the 45 minute bag check cut-off time due to traffic. No help getting a bag check refund even though I paid for it a day early. Come to find out that the gate staff was courtesy checking everyone's bags anyway, and they took it with a smile. Those fools at the front were content to take my money and tell me to somehow mail my luggage to my destination (not possible since the flight was boarding in 35 minutes). There needs to be communication with the check in staff regarding courtesy check ins."
Pros: "I was moved to business class after an ordeal but the extra room was nice."
Cons: "I came down in a wheel chair and noticed my ticket had me in an exit row. When I asked to be moved, the women behind the counter had an attitude. Many of the customer waiting to board noticed. Next she started boarding the plain and I had 3 people ask if I needed to be pushed down and they would help. She barked at us that someone was coming. Once inside I asked for help getting my plug into the outlet because I wasn't able to make it fit. The crew member told me to keep trying. Because I never could get it in, my computer and phone wouldn't work. So I figured I would purchase one of the entertaining units but none was offered. It made for a very long flight. When leaving the plane, the other crew members were very helpful and even the wheel chair attending me was a delight. I was on flight 1977 from Houston to Seattle on November 7th. I usually fly twice a month for business. After my ordeal, I will use other airlines."
Cons: "Showed up at airport w 2 15 yr olds traveling alone. We're told we needed to pay $150 each way. We were NOT told when tix were purchased. Accused of lying about the girls ages when we booked. Tix were booked and paid by two different parents and times. Agent relented and waived fee. At the gate we were again challenged and had to go thru it all again. No more United for us!"
Pros: "After all these years, still love United!"
Cons: "Loved everything!"
Pros: "LOVE the plane! CLEAN!! New and BEAUTIFUL!!!!"
Cons: "Sat and listened the WHOLE trip except when drinks were being served to the private lives of the flight attendants. The didn't pick up trash so everyone had to place their ice and semi full drinks in the nets when it got bumpy for the landing. I watched the flight attendants the whole time- they got paid to converse about everything- here is proof- one flight attendant was complaining that she only had 4 days of vacation and that she never gets called to work- I think I can guess why- and that she has talked to Kaitlyn- I think that was her bosses name?? But she wasn't given more hours. I wish I had ear plugs. The African American lady was so unkind and uncaring. She scollded another African American lady for coming to the back to throw away her trash. She hurt the lady's feelings and made her mad too. The folks on the plane seemed to be too much of a deflection to their personal conversations, but they were successful at ignoring everyone. We had to be careful to not spill liquid on our carry on etc and not hit the cups and such with our knees on the way out. I usually fly Southwest and want to write a letter telling them how great their service is! I apologized to the cleaning crew as the flight attendants told us to not worry about our drinks"the cleaning crew" will get it. How unprofessional to treat others that way. Stop talking! You can get A WHOLE lot done when you aren't sharing your personal life and opinions with each other!"
Cons: "Charge for tv!"
Cons: "Should load the plane from the back rather from the front. People in the back can sort their stuff while still be able to load people into the front."
Cons: "This flight was delayed for 1.5 hours which was not nice and it was a six hour flight and only could receive pretzels without paying for food."
Pros: "Crew was gracious, helpful, and courteous during a terrible and disruptive ordeal for passengers"
Cons: "Being stuck for nearly an hour sweating on a plane with no AC while mechanics were trouble shooting, only to find out that we had to exit the plane, and that it could not fly. Passengers had no idea what to do - whether another plane would be sent for us, whether United would reimburse our ticket if we arranged another flight on our own, etc. We were left to fend for ourselves. I had a wedding to get to with many pre-wedding events, starting this evening. So, I looked for another flight, found one, booked it, and went to United customer service to request reimbursement for my ticket. I was told that United had just learned that another plane was coming for us and would arrive in 30 minutes, at 8:10. (My original flight had been at 6:35). The other flight I had booked was at 10:30 pm. So, United customer service changed canceled my new booking and put me back to my original flight, now arriving at 8:10 and boarding at 8:50. The plane did arrive, but we did not board until 10:50 pm. My flight left at 11:02 pm. Bottom line is that my flight was delayed 4.5 hours. I missed an important event that I was supposed to host. I missed my only opportunity to see a dear friend (and guest of honor) - this is someone I have not seen in person for ten years and was the guest of honor at tonight's celebration that I was supposed to host and missed. Furthermire, I could not carry on a bag that I have carried on for years, and that would have easiky fit. Having to check my bag left me without my phone charger. Of course, the fact that we were 4.5 hours delayed meant that I ran out of power shortly into our long flight from Washington. to Seattle. And the food was awful - stale nuts, . ;, b:;"
Pros: "Flight crew was attentive and kind."
Cons: "We had to sit on the Tarmac for 20 minutes before taking off due to low cloud cover over Seattle."
Cons: "I spent 8 hours waiting for a connecting the scheduled time was less than one hour"
Cons: "This is wrong. I should be reimbursed for the extra I paid on the Newark to Seattle leg. I booked for economy extra/comfort and got only economy (coach). And with no apologies, no explanation. also,,... The flight was delayed by > half hour (but this happens). However, the flight attendants were somewhat unprofessional in their language.and attitude."
Cons: "Boarded, then deboarded due to missing rivets, flight delayed nearly 4hrs, luggage claim took close to an hour"
Pros: "No problems."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "same as above"
Cons: "The snacks where gross."
Cons: "Waiting in S.F. for flight to board. Crew announces flight will be 1 hour and ten minutes late. A few minutes later, announces the pilot is on his way and may be a half an hour late. The gate number was not announced until about a half an hour before boarding. We finally boarded and was told that co-pilot was not at airport. It was a terrible experience with United."
Cons: "Gave away my prepaid seat with no warning, preventing me from sitting in the seat I paid for with my Fiancée."
Pros: "EXCELLENT"
Cons: "Everything was great beside the flight price. Besides that it was EXCELLENT!"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Service was the worst. The poor training of the staff, is clearly a result of poor commitment by the company to provide good customer service."
Cons: "I just don't like being charged $40 on top of the fare to bring a carryon bag that fits above seat, this should be included in price and still have reasonable air fare. I chose this flight because of the fare then got hit with the extra charge for my carryon and we did not even get any pretzels or chips to snack on either for free. You have to buys snacks, not even a complimentarty snack, so because of this I will most likely choose to fly Frontier Airlines anymore. The flight was great though. Very efficient and timely and the Pilot was fantastic in his take off and landings. Very smooth."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I had to pay for every little thing after I already booked my flight in advance."
Cons: "DID NOT like having to wait in Denver airport for the scheduled 9 hour layover and then delayed for another 1.5 hour for a total of 10+ hours. DID NOT like getting lured into a great schedule in March and then in May you cancelled the flight and we had a 9 + hour layover. TERRIBLE. Will never fly with Frontier again. :("
Cons: "I was charged an additional fee for an actual seat on the aircraft. In addition to this, I was charged for my carry on item."
Pros: "Relatively quick flight - I slept much of the time. Decent leg room (but I am short). Great price!! I overheard others on the flight with similar prices, I am glad this was available."
Cons: "A loud crying baby was behind me the whole time. Inevitably, he stopped crying just five minutes before the flight ended. Nothing much any one can do about this. I did not think to ask for ear plugs, maybe you have them."
Pros: "I liked everything except I was a bit surprised to find out it was an extra $40 for my carry-on each way. I would've paid the extra $80 upfront but it seemed a little bit sneaky to add it on when I got to the airport. Otherwise it was a very enjoyable experience."
Cons: "From the time my flight sat at the gate for 30 minutes saying that had to load last minute bags, to getting no water to drink for 3 hours, to uncomfortable seats that do not push back, and now no bags after 36 hours after paying a $40.00 fee, with no way to communicate with the airlines for a status, this will be the last Frontier flight for me, regardless of the pricing."
Cons: "I felt taken advantage of by the surcharges."
Pros: "I'm going to go out of my way to try and never fly with Frontier again! How do you expect anyone to fly without baggage? $40 for a carry-on?! I thought I could go home for the holidays for under $300 but with this fee and the other, and the seats that no one seems to fit in comfortably, I am tired, $400 poorer, and have a kinked neck! To top it off, I can't remember the last time any of my flights left on time. Get your act together Frontier."
Pros: "The plane didn't crash. That was the only positive."
Cons: "-Both flights delayed by hours to and from, with zero explanation from staff, nor any acknowledgment or sympathy for all of us waiting 4 extra hours to board a flight. -Seats don't recline, trays barely large enough to fit my iPhone on it -Hidden fees with everything. 1 carry-on costs $35-$60, picking a seat costs $9-$35, and you can't even get a glass of soda without paying. Cheaper to book elsewhere after all the extra expenses. -I would recommend horse drawn buggie before flying Frontier. The risk of dysentery is a better option."
Pros: "They won't tell her what they are doing and they keep making maintenance mistakes. I just want her home"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The stewardess requested someone change seats with a man in the first row who had a problem with his leg. I changed seats with him and then, as it was policy, the stewardess GAVE me a drink and snack. I was surprised!"
Pros: "The crew was nice, flight on time and fine."
Cons: "I don't like the fact that you do not recycle, yet you provide goods that are just placed in landfills and will take hundreds of years to decompose. The airports recycle, is it that difficult to make that happen for Frontier? The hundreds of plastic cups, plastic bottles, cans, etc. etc. is mind blowing and is something I pay attention to. I actually took my item back to the airport instead of giving to the crew at the end so I could place the item in the recycle bin in the airport after asking your crew if there was recycling. They said there was no recycling. I also picked up a plastic bottle from another seat on the way out to help clean up since I knew you guys would throw it out anyway. Thanks for considering being more sustainable, eco-friendly, and for thinking about my comment seriously to minimize your airplane's environmental impact. I will pay attention and voice my concerns elsewhere as well - recycling shouldn't have to be done by the consumer, the businesses need to step up and make it happen."
Cons: "At every point, this airline tries to nickle and dime you. Costs for luggage and carry ons drive the price up to that of other tickets. The seats are very cramped and do not recline."
Cons: "I was not aware that I'd have to pay for carry-on luggage. If I had, Frontier would not have been the cheapest flight and I wouldn't have flown them. Seats were super uncomfortable, no option to recline, no adjusting head rest, tray table was maybe 4 inches of tray that wouldn't hold a book. Frontier offers no snacks or drinks save water; you have to pay for everything, including soda, coffee, etc."
Pros: "The staff and crew were handling the situation well given the hand they were dealt."
Cons: "6 hour delay before they found replacement airplane, waiting till almost all food was closed before issuing meal vouchers, chairs do not recline at all, no head rest padding."
Cons: "Flight delayed again, upon arrival in Seattle we were unable to find our car seat. The Frontier rep was not upstairs nor at the carrousel even after being paged by the port of Seattle. Eventually, we found it in front of Delta's baggage claim with no bag on, no indicator (signage) at all that it was part of Frontier's flight."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Canceled my flight 30 min before takeoff, and didn't get us on another one for 2 days."
Pros: "The flight wasn't delayed 12 hours this time"
Cons: "The long layover in Denver and that I wasn't given a full refund for my flight there when I had to book with a different airline, nor was my $30 bag check refunded."
Pros: "I actually like that you cannot lean your seat back. It's too imposing on the passenger behind you."
Cons: "They charge extra for everything. Every seat has an extra charge except for the middle seats in the very back row. Once you've paid for your seat and for your carry-on bag(!), you've paid as much as you would have flying with Alaska, American, United, etc. There was no entertainment whatsoever on a 5 hour flight (not even for purchase) and no snack provide either. I believe there was food for purchase but I didn't even look at it. Also, they do not support TSA pre-check. This would have been something the representative I called should have informed me of but instead she told me she had updated my records. So in addition to the fee gouging, their staff are either uninformed or outright dishonest."
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "The seats don't recline, the boarding passes didn't scan anywhere we tried to scan into."
Pros: "The announcement (although I didn't take them up on it) to offer two domestic round trips if I'd sign up for one of their Mastercards. It's probably not a bad deal for someone who likes to have lots of credit cards and doesn't mind annual fees, I'm just not one of those people."
Cons: "My inability to access their e-mail offers to set things up ahead of time and at lower costs than paying them at the airport check-in, above and beyond the baggage charges themselves (Seventy bucks), especially for my carry on ... COME ON! I've become used to Southwest's far more enlightened policies, which I obviously prefer. Since it also has flights between Seattle and Denver, I'll look much more closely at staying with them the next time I make this trip."
Pros: "Airline ticket cost."
Cons: "Rude flight crew and the only thing that doesn't have a fee attached to it is the use of the bathroom and drinking water."
Pros: "The crew was very accommodating and pleasant."
Cons: "If I had known that Frontier charges for carry on baggage, I would have chosen another flight. I usually fly United or Air France and I shall do the same from now on. There was 0 leg room and the "tray" is only a few inches deep, which hardly fits a laptop. I was surprised they didn't charge for the use of the bathroom. I am sure that is next. I have to say the majority of people around me were expressing the same sentiments. I was also assigned the middle seat in the very last aisle. A flight attendant moved me to a better seat as soon as he could. I was very happy it was only a 2 hour flight."
Cons: "They charge for carry on baggage and do not make you aware of this at the time of ticket purchase, so it is a surprise. They do not provide even free water in-flight; everything, including even water, is for purchase. Water should really be free. The initial prices are therefore misleading since they tack on many additional fees that are not standard in the airline industry."
Pros: "I was extremely disappointed with Fronteir airlines this was my first and only experience flying with them, and though the ticket price was great, it simply was NOT worth it! There were additional costs for everything! When I attempted to get my seat assignment I was told they assign at the gate, or I could PAY an additional fee for choosing one myself. And, they charge extra for your carry on bag. And expecting to at least be offered a soda, maybe a mini bag of salted pretzels if lucky (lol), I was SHOCKED to be told 1 soda was $1,99! Additional cost for any snacks or anything other than water! The aircraft was very dirty inside the bathroom as well as on and by my seat, as though it hadn't been even wiped down in over a month! (Pretty bad!) The flight crew were all very good I must say. I asked one of them and was told that 2of them were brand new employees. It really showed! They were much friendlier and genuinely cared about customer service! Refreshing! So, overall I would have to rate it low, and highly unlikely to fly with them again.even the checking in process was a real headache! I am glad to have received this questionaire , as I had planned on actually taking the time to sit down and write a letter as well as request a full refund , or credit for a friend, family member, or myself . You do run some pretty excellent deals, and I would like to welcome the opportunity to experience Fronteir in positive light, a nothing but positive experience. Thank you very much. Sincerely, Dr.Tamra D.Lyngaas 20426 102nd Ave. S.E., Kent, Wa. 98031"
Cons: "Two of your flight crew were caring and genuine it seemed. Great attitudes and upbeat!"
Cons: "Nickel and diming: extra $$ for a deat, extra $$ to bring a carryon aboard, $ for even a soda! Why not just charge a little more in the first place?"
Pros: "Nothing, never use them again EVER"
Cons: "NOTHING0 ZILCH"
Pros: "The crew was helpful. And we landed safely."
Cons: "The period between landing on the runway in Denver and arriving at the gate was ONE HOUR. The time it took to claim our luggage in Denver was 45 minutes. I hear Alaska Airlines has a real nice service."
Pros: "Attendants are friendly and deserve to work at a more respectable airline."
Cons: "The elimination of tray tables is so cheaply appalling. Just to shove a few more rows of seats on a plane while sacrificing everyone's comfort and space. Could have shipped my luggage for cheaper than all the added fees. Will avoid this airline in the future."
Pros: "I like a free water or a small snack"
Cons: "I like to have a Free water and 1 little snack"
Cons: "Brutal turbulence leaving Denver. We noticed a crack in the wing upon landing in Denver. Rudeness seems to be a prerequisite for Frontier flight attendants as they charge for water and carry on bags. We refused to pay the additional $13 to select our seats and as a result were seated on the last row of the plane. Kayak should really add the cost of seat selection, a carry on bag, and water to the price they are showing to be more realistic."
Cons: "Both flights to & from Denver were over 30 minutes late unloading passengers. This particular flight was late on all counts.15 minutes late beginning boarding. Departed over 30 min. Late and arrival was about 40 min. Late. I do like that charging for carry on means people board /load and deplane/unload quickly.We get what we pay for and Frontier is cheap. We payfor each little add on, reserved seats, beverage, carry on, etc.Good option if cheapness is primaryfactor over comfort, convenience, or reliabledeparture and arrival schedule. Unrealistic tight scheduling means little time to clean or prepareplane between flights."
Cons: "Unfriendly baggage policies will make you feel ripped off. You're better off paying higher prices with a better airline such as Southwest or Virgin America because with all the baggae fees and surcharges you're gonna pay the same price or higher than the other airlines and you'll have absolutely NO comforts. You get what you pay for, but with Frontier Airlines you get LESS than what you paid for..."
Pros: "The price was good."
Cons: "But not that good."
Pros: "I like that it is inexpensive because I would not be able to fly otherwise."
Cons: "I've ridden Frontier several times but never have I ridden on a flight that doesn't even let you put your seat back. For a 4 hour red-eye, this was a huge disappointment."
Pros: "Ending."
Cons: "First time flying Frontier. Great advertised rate round trip Sea to Denver $140 vs next best AK at $170. Receive email to pick seat, Suprise... They cost $9-36 each way, no mention of free seats if you just show up and go open seating. also Suprise# 2 carrying are $40 each way. I choose $18 seats and had a carry on so total trip ended up being $140 + $126 in a frontier gotcha money an increase in fare of almost double. I did find out about the seat chafe scam before checking in and asked to just go open seat.....uhh no. So how much would the Alaska Air trip have been....$170 plus $0 for assigned seat and $0 for carry on so $170. So fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me.... Their will not be a twice and I suggest Kayak add some notes to fares to avoid future bilking by Frontier."
Pros: "The flight was punctual."
Cons: "I'm claustrophobic and was stuck in an aisle seat. My air vent wasn't working and I tapped the flight attendant, a woman in her late 50's to mid 60's, asking her to help me with it. She said she was about to give the presentation on safety procedures and that it was "more important than air right now." This happened pre-takeoff. I was upset about it and she never did help me with the air vent. Then, they do the service where they charge for everything and no one can get up to go to the restroom until they pass through, and they take a long time to do it. I was very unhappy, but kept to myself."
Pros: "See cooment above"
Cons: "See comments above"
Pros: "Arrived"
Cons: "Terrible seats, noisy plane. Extra charges"
Pros: "The flight was the cheapest"
Cons: "Flight was a hour late. Gate personnel were uninformed and discourteous, seats were extraordinarily uncomfortable, tray tables were unbelievably small and not even water was free. I've flown no frills before but this was terrible."
Pros: "The flight was short!"
Cons: "I am shocked at how Frontier has downgraded to uncomfortable seats, no entertainment, envelope sized trays, and charging for extra for everything!! So disappointed=("
Cons: "It's just really hard to enjoy a flight when you feel like you've been nickeled and dimed. I flew frontier a couple years ago and felt the same way. I forgot I guess and gave it another try. I"m definitely done with Frontier"
Cons: "My name was not correct on return email documents. When I tried to correct on-line, the program asked for another $139. When I phoned the number listed, I had a gentleman whose English was very hard to understand. He ended up telling me not to worry about the error-it would not cause a problem. I ended up phoning a 2nd time, to another person to assure that nothing would go wrong at boarding time."
Pros: "The flight attendants were nice. This is the best I can say about Frontier Airlines."
Cons: "Whoever designed the seats does not understand the human form. They were TORTUOUS to sit it. I had to take my emergency anti-nausea pill, the seats torked my body so badly. I was in so much pain after I arrived at my destination at both ends, I needed medical help. Charging extra for every little thing was insane. They didn't even give you a basic drink without drooling into your wallet. I have never been charged for a carry on bag before. Checked luggage yes, but never carry on. Both on the flight out and on the flight in, they missed the boarding gate, so we had to wait a long time while they lined it up with the airplane. A frightening lack of training here. Flying sucks. I understand that; that's the way of the system now. This went so far beyond the basic suckage of the regular flying experience, it was unbelievable. Frontier will NEVER be getting my money again. Probably the most expensive flight for the least comfort and amenities you could find."
Pros: "The plane was clean and on time"
Cons: "This was without a doubt the most uncomfortable plane anyone in our family has ever been on. Not to mention that the size of the trays was completely useless, in addition to chair is not reclining at all. And no legroom whatsoever. We felt nickeled and dime did every turn paying the highest fees for baggage of any airline we've ever traveled, on top of only being able to bring one carry-on, and having to pay for any kind of beverage or snack on the plane. The staff was neither friendly or rude, I would say ambivalent. I don't normally leave negative reviews – but I will avoid frontier in the future. ( I apologize for the typos – I have dictated this on my phone, and the system is not allowing me to correct them. )"
Pros: "Made it to my destination alive!"
Cons: "Extra cost after ticket purchase for seats both ways. Extra cost for any bags including carry-on. Extra cost for any food or drink item during flight-don't even get a cheap bag of peanuts for free!"
Pros: "Timeliness"
Cons: "Those seats are horrible."
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "First and LAST time flying Spirit. Once I had to pay the fee for having a carry on bag, the price came out closer to one of the airlines I should have used instead. The website address didn't even work from my phone, so I had to pay the $65 gate fee for the carry on. The seats weren't comfortable, didn't recline, no cushioning. No inflight entertainment of any kind. During the flight, I got up and went to the front to use the bathroom (which I KNEW was empty) and the staff directed me to use the ones in back. Why? And they never reduced the cabin pressure on the descent! The cabin was still completely pressurized for the higher altitudes well after we touched down. This feels like such an amateur mistake that simply isn't acceptable."
Cons: "Like a city bus in the sky"
Pros: "Crew was polite"
Cons: "Not lose luggage, have a better system in place to deal with system downs. PICK UP YOUR PHONES AND RETURN MESSAGES"
Pros: "We were early until we got to the destination, and then sat on the runway for over 30 minutes (contrary to reported landing time) without pulling up to a gate. As passengers we were given very little information which is frustrating when the flight is so late."
Cons: "Spirit could have made a better effort to plan their gates better so planes don’t sit on the tarmac, and they could do a better job of giving passengers information."
Pros: "ㅑ"
Pros: "I liked that I was “randomly” assigned a window seat"
Cons: "The fact that spirit airlines requires a fee of $45 to bring a carry-on. $90 round trip! If you don’t pay ahead of time, and pay at the gate, it’s $65. Unreal. I would gladly accept that as rational if the price of the airfare wasn’t $500 to begin with."
Cons: "We got delayed like 5 hours the crew was rude and the seats were uncomfortable"
Pros: "Easy check-in process."
Cons: "No outlet to keep electronics charged."
Pros: "The crew was awesome!!"
Cons: "After buying my ticket, a day before boarding, I was charged separately for checking bags and carry-ones. Once I got to the airport, I was charged another $30 for the weight of my bag. I should have been made aware of these fees during the purchase of my ticket. Nearly $200 unexpectly taken away from my vacation fund. Soooo not cool. I believed I was getting a great deal, but in actuality I was being charged just as much as any other flight. The ride may have been better with another airline because the seats where compact, hard, and immobile. It’s definitely was my best experience."
Pros: "The crew was pleasant and everything was as promised."
Cons: "Only thing is that were not in anybody’s control, Planes are never comfortable."
Cons: "I didn’t appreciate having to pay extra when we were never notified of the weight limit. On our first flight we were technically over the weight limit but were not charged and then were on our flight home and it wasn’t any higher in weight and we were charged. Then when we got to our destination our luggage had been broken and the zipper no longer closes. This was the first and last time I will be flying with Spirit Airlines"
Pros: "Flight was as expected."
Cons: "Handling of the 5 hour hour delay. Delays are normal and I appreciate the attention to safety. After we deplaned, I would have liked more information. Everybody in line asked the same question - when’s the next flight? The worst part was the delay with meal vouchers. They said they were going to read off the names, when I saw them flipping through and not reading the names, I asked why, to which they responded “because it’s hard to read”. Well, they aren’t going to read themselves. Either try, or spell it out. Or call out confirmation numbers. Eventually they got them mixed up, gave up, and asked us to come up 1 at a time so they could find ours."
Pros: "Nothing... the passengers were nice."
Cons: "It was horrible! I won’t let any of my friends use Spirit air. I had to pay 55$ for a carry on. I wasn’t even carrying a purse. I was told after I paid 55$ and they took my bag I could have pre- checked my bag for less! I had to pay for my seat!!! There were no screens, no outlets, no WiFi, and no snacks without a charge. On my return The Spirit website did not indicate gate changes as the gate changes. I prechecked this time, 3 hours early and the plane departed 40 min before departure. The screens at kiosk did not indicate changes to flight time or gate change. I wasn’t even called!!! I missed my flight. The staff gave no help for hotel or shuttle. I was to sleep 12 hours for n Next plane and my bag was on first plane. My original flight of $249 to Vegas was $349. Plus hotel 129 plus $40 for extra night stay and Uber."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "What I thought was a cheap flight, became a more expensive one because of all the unknown fees. Upon check in, I realized I had to pay $45 each way for a CARRY ON, plus $15 each way for a seat assignment. On board, any food or drink (water, ginger ale, etc) was for purchase only."
Pros: "The air rate"
Cons: "Expensive Water......"
Cons: "55.00 for a carry on bag?? Are you kidding me? If I had known that when I bought the tickets of course I wouldn't have bought the tickets. For another hundred dollars I could have bought a ticket From Alaska flown in comfort and had free water !!! Instead I had to use that 100.00 for carry on bags! I hate you guys! You're the biggest rip off. I fly an average 3 times a year. I will never fly Spirit and I will tell everyone on all social media not to fly with spirit unless they enjoy getting raped!!!"
Pros: "Reasonable price, comfort was okay, no delays, bags arrived in timely manner"
Cons: "Add ons, plane seemed a bit dirty(seat area and windows), facilities were clean though."
Pros: "low fare?"
Cons: "astronomical baggage fees, tight seats, pouch on the back of the seat in front of me was broken and pushing against my leg."
Cons: "Children (3 within the age of 8-12)unattended left to pull on and kick the seat in front of them, loud arguing that was never addressed. My hair was pulled several times when they would grab the top of the seat to stand up or just harassing each other. I also witnessed them on cell phones that were not in airplane mode and never once did their parent reprimand them for their behavior. I had to do this from the seat in front of them. When the flight landed the entire family talked loudly about pushing their way off the plane to get to another flight, little did they know others had connecting flights to reach as well. Poor behavior & left to make others have a worse flight"
Pros: "Boarding was easy; seats were reasonably comfortable. The plane was on time for departure and arrival."
Cons: "They charge for water! That's pretty lame. They also charged for us to make a seat selection even when we didn't care about pre-selecting. We knew they charged for checked bags, but we didn't know about the water and seats."
Pros: "Crew and plane were OK."
Cons: "Seats were terrible. I did not get any sleep on either cross country leg. I can usually sleep fine on planes, but the seats were plastic and had no head stabilizer, and did not recline. It was impossible to sleep. I had a "donut" pillow for my neck, but the seats really made it impossible. I won't fly Spirit again until I hear they have better seats."
Cons: "never saw that flight, it was delayed due to severe weather and we were still in baltimore. see above!!!"
Pros: "The trip was generally as expected. This was the first trip our family of four had taken since before the baggage fees had become common. I chose this airline for its price. For a short flight, this was very nice. It is best to know your luggage needs before you purchase. It was helpful to see the total round trip pricing as well."
Cons: "The flight left 9 minutes earlier than scheduled so we missed the flight and had to go to hotel and missed a day at my job as well as my wife too."
Pros: "we had a safe flight, no major issues, and were able to get off the plane quickly."
Cons: "I had to pay $97 to check my bag...kinda defeats the purpose of booking a cheap flight. This was by far the smallest seating space I've ever had...I'm 5'9 so normally I don't have an issue with this but my knees were about an inch away from the seat in front of me and I had no space to move around. The headrests were hard as a rock, and I could feel a metal bar in the middle of the seat poking out at my back. The seats don't go back, there was no entertainment whatsoever, not even a magazine to read. The main lights were left on during the 4.5 hour nighttime flight. There was not even a complimentary cup of water...$3 for water. It was also freezing in the plane and there was a 2 hour delay for no apparent reason. Look up the fees they charge for everything before you book with Spirit."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Every thing"
Pros: "Boarding was seamless and fast. We arrived early with no trouble. I sat in an exit row and at 6'2 had PLENTY of room."
Cons: "The only complaint I had was that the flight attendants were a little snippy, but it wasn't anything to serious."
Pros: "The crew and captain acknowledged the plane was late. Cheapest plane tickets ever. But read below to see the result of cheap plane tickets."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 2 hours. Then after boarding the sink ceased working. The plane seemed to come from a developing country. There were way more noises than I have ever heard on a plane. Multiple unusual clunks as the landing gear was being deployed. Then on the land I heard unusual stress on the wings. I have been flying 2-3 times a year for the past 10 years, and this was the worst plane experience. The seats were terribly uncomfortable. I felt like I was strapped to a set of bricks, flying on the wright brothers plane."
Pros: "Can't say I liked anything because I never got on my flight."
Cons: "Five other people and I were unable to board our flight from las vegas to seattle because we received numerous notifications that our flight was delayed, and we were all sitting at the gate at least and hour, one group 3 hours before departure, and did not hear the announcement for boarding because the flight decided to leave 30minutes earlier than we were told. When I went to check in, the plane was still attached, but the attendant would not let me on the flight. Further, this airline does not accommodate for arrangements since the next flight isn't until the next day, and the next flight the day after that. Missing this flight would not be so frustrating, had this airline not only had one flight per day, and we're on standby, we don't know if we will be able to board, we may be stranded for days. So moral of the story, you get what you pay for, and I'm now willing to pay and extra $100 for a more reliable airline so i don't get charged for every little thing and receive better service. This is not the staff's fault; they were all very friendly, this is a corporate issue."
Pros: "They changer for everything and it's very expensive and not nice very rude"
Cons: "Water or one drink for free and nicer people"
Pros: "The Airplane crew was excellent and professional"
Cons: "It was all good"
Cons: "I spoke with a customer service rep and requested to cancel round trip from Seattle to Las Vegas; I was told that they had to be cancelled separately, so I did this and was told that both were cancelled and because I had called in a timely manner I would not be charged. This transaction was friendly and helpful; however, apparently not completed accurately. Three weeks later: Only my one trip TO Vegas was cancelled; my return flight home was not. When I again called Spirit, Jenki (sp?) answered the phone and told me I hadn't cancelled in enough time and would be charged for the trip and could not cancel the return leg home. I protested and was told they would review my phone conversation. They did not call me back, but I will be calling again later today to see if I can get credit (although I don't want to use them again in any case). Very disappointed with the service."
Cons: "I didn't know about all the charges before I flew."
Pros: "Got upgraded to larger, exit row seat for free."
Cons: "I like that Spirit offers low flight costs, but of course it's all made up by the crazy baggage fees, for-purchase only snacks and drink, etc. I know you won't change your business model because it's making you very popular and rich, but it is a rip off."
Pros: "See above"
Pros: "Departure and arrival on time. Mostly smooth flight."
Cons: "The flight attendants spent their time making fun of guests (passengers), not once did they smile, and were very rude to multiple people."
Cons: "Worst airline I have ever experienced. I will never book with spirit again or refer people to this airline."
Cons: "Without a doubt, the worst airline experience we've ever had to suffer through. HOW does Spirit expect to survive, much less prosper, with such abysmally poor customer service? . . The Spirit airlines customer experience lacks even the most minimal amenities--not to mention jacking customers with ridiculously exorbitant baggage fees!"
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "I thought I was getting a good deal, but then any bag you take with you, carry on or not, costs $45. EACH WAY! So what we thought were $93 tickets were really $173 if we brought a carry on. Who doesn't bring at least a carry on. Oh, and by the way, if you don't understand that carryon costs extra, they extort you in form of a $100 fee per bag at the gate. They know they have you because you're about to board the plane, so why not extort money out of you. Then the seats don't recline, and thank God they don't because your knees are smashed into the seat in front you. I'm 6'3", which is a little tall, but i totally don't fit in these seats. VERY UNCOMFORTABLE. Then there is the endless nickel and dime'ing for everything: do you want a credit card, do you want to choose your seats? Oh that'd be $5 extra. Do you want to board first for $10, etc. etc. On the plus side, the flight attendants were at least funny and tried to make people laugh."
Cons: "Fees. Fees. Fees. Smallest seats I've ever seen. Additional charge for a seat with an actual tray table or room for adults. Felt like sitting in a child's play table. Fees for luggage and carry on. Check in woman tried to charge us for the person befores luggage. Seats were double book on flights. Multiple people with same seat number. Will never fly them again."
Cons: "This is the worst airline ever. Untop of the crappy planes, they don't serve you complimentary drink you have to pay for literally everything even a cup of water. We didn't know that you have to pay a fee for a carry on bag and charged us 100$ even though it was small and fit the length criteria. Their crew are very rude and don't give a hoot about how you feel"
Pros: "I got home on time."
Cons: "I don't like being live stock."
Pros: "Nothing!!"
Cons: "Had never flown Spirit before. First AND LAST experience. Don't care that they call themselves no frills. Their customer service is pathetic. Had to wait at the airport for 25 minutes for any Spirit employee to show up at the ticket counter to check my bag. By that time there were about 50 people waiting for help. Even other airline employees and TSA employees didn't know why they weren't there. Also called customer service to have my KTN (pre-check #) added because I couldn't put it in when I booked the flight. Even though he told me he would put it in- he didn't. So NO precheck for me. The seats in the plane are beyond uncomfortable. Like sitting on a hard straight chair -no padding. Charging for carry ons? Really? Checking my bag was cheaper than carrying it on and it's a SMALL suitcase seriously. Do NOT be fooled by the low prices listed. They are deceiving!!! Just trying to give a real review here folks. Not being overly dramatic."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and polite."
Cons: "My flight was delayed both ways. The seats are small and the plane made a terrible noise both taking off and landing. There was no entertainment at all and the carry on fee is ridiculous."
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Having to pay extra for my bag."
Pros: "It was surprised to find out that I got to pay for my suitcase $ 55"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything was just a disaster. Don't do it."
Pros: "Price was great!! Can't be beat!!"
Cons: "Nothing bad to say!!"
Pros: "There is a lot of room in the newer planes."
Cons: "Refused to let me get a boarding pass; even with plenty of time to get through security and to my gate. I was literally there 48 min early as opposed to 45 min and could see through the empty security facility to my gate and they still would not let me go. I had to wait 13 hours for another flight because they are so terrible, no other airline partners with them. They charge for absolutely everything. They as a whole were super disorganized. Flight attendant was obnoxious and clearly drunk. The lines for the counter were chaos and the wait was absurd; 1 hour +. My suitcase came back to me absolutely filthy and runed. Overall, the most horrible travel experience I have ever had. Pay the extra ten bucks (that's what they charge for water anyway) and fly any other airline."
