Pros: "The promptness"
Pros: "I didn't expect that we can have some snacks (pretzel) during the flight! And the seat was comfortable."
Pros: "Friendly people, clean new plane, ease of check in and baggage drop."
Cons: "Sold out of the fruit and cheese pack by the 20th row!"
Cons: "I carry photo equipment in a carry on bag because of expense, damage control and temperature control. Unfortunately I can not leave it for baggage people to handle (although I would love to.) When I got my carry on to the greeting flight attendant I explained I had just finished a shoot and I was sorry that I needed to keep the bag as carry on. Flight Attendant: there was nothing she could do and I needed to go back down the stairs, even though people were still boarding and leave it with the baggage people. Me: "In the past the flight attendant put the bag in that closet." (I pointed to the locked closet where they keep their bags.) Flight Attendant: I cant open it because it's locked. Me: "The key is kept there." (I pointed to where the key is kept. I know because I've done this trip so many times before.) Flight Attendant: "See if it will fit under your seat." It did... but I had my knees in my chin for the entire flight. Thanks, Ann"

Pros: "Ordering Alaska's clear luggage tags and printing the luggage tags at home was great! It made the bag-drop very easy."
Cons: "Just a minor issue. I changed my seats upon checking-in online wanting to be farther forward. When my family and I boarded, the row I chose did not have a window which was a drag because I wanted my 11 year old daughter to have a view of the mountains in flight. Not a huge deal but maybe Alaska's online seat reservation system could identify which rows do not have windows, like emergency rows are not identified. Again, not a big deal... The overall experience was very good."
Pros: "the seat confusion was a hassle but the crew was nice about it."
Cons: "the flight was oversold and i didn't get a seat assignment until the last minute. Then the seat they gave me was already booked to someone else, so i had to wait again on the plane to get a seat. on my outgoing flight to seattle a few days prior, i intentionally didn't check a bag because i had a late arrival and early work the next day, was forced to check it on the plane and then they lost it for an hour after i landed so i didn't get home until 2am. frustrating, but again the crew was nice about the mistakes."

Cons: "I found out a week ahead of time that I couldn't make my flight and I had bought the $15 flight insurance that says it covers changes in your flight. Come to find it does not and $185 is down the drain. Poop."

Cons: "I just wish they had more food options, besides snacks and juices and beverages"

Pros: "Boarding was efficient. Crew was friendly and helpful. Comfort was coach level, so to be expected. There was no entertainment."
Cons: "Little bags of chex mix are really unacceptable. There should be at least sandwiches offered for free on 2.5+ hour flights, but I guess it's a sign of the times. Also internet should be free."

Pros: "Crew were attentive and the food service schedule was helpful in making the time pass. wonderfully generous pours on the complimentary wine service"
Cons: "Food was really just gooey goo."
Cons: "They did not have a “gate available” for our arrival so we have been waiting in the plain on the tarmac for over fourty minutes and still waiting. This is ridiculous. We purchase tickets at delta for a plain that had a departure and arrival gate. This should not be happening"
Pros: "Super friendly staf, big enough seat, good enough food, enough room for luggage."
Cons: "Seat was smaller than EVA and food not quite as good."
Pros: "Entertainment, food, comfort"
Cons: "Slow boarding/alighting, entertainment system was too sluggish"
Pros: "This is what airlines used to be like. The food and quantity were excellent. Too bad these services aren’t offered on domestic flights. We had a snack or meal every couple hours with plenty of drinks. The legroom was ample and comfortable."

Cons: "The seats are small and the plane feels like a Sardine can."
Cons: "seats were broken, armrest broken"
Cons: "Did not serve the food we asked Limited choice of movies"

Pros: "Food, service and entertainment"
Cons: "Entry into the aircraft was a bit chaotic"

Cons: "The crew! So slow! Not helpful with your questions/request and the attitude! What on earth! Awful customer service!"
Pros: "Entertainment available"
Cons: "All good"
Cons: "Too many interruptions on the inflight entertainment."
Pros: "Loved the swift checking in at Seatac, being picked out of the Special check-in line, tended to by a Ndeye, smooth all the way through to the gate. Also liked that the plane's arrival at Schiphol was only 30 minutes later than initial ETA after long delay at Seatac. Also liked the many snacks."
Cons: "Prolonged delay of flight departure. Choices of entertainment, especially movies."
Cons: "Old cramped untidy and limited drink service"
Pros: "Good food, excellent service"
Cons: "Seats did not have enough storage."
Cons: "Seats a bit cramped"
Cons: "The crew appeared tired, scattered, and unhappy. The flight was delayed after boarding nearly 1hr while repairs were completed. 1st announcement by captains crew stated passengers could disembark during repair, then stated 10min later to take a seat. Very poor communication."
Cons: "The fact they wasted two days of my trip with my son travelling from the U.S. to China because they didn't know about transit visa regulations. And so far they offered a 75 dollar voucher for participating merchants. Unacceptable"
Pros: "Crew was excellent everything served was of great quality, all the amenities were solid and flight was comfortable and on time."

Pros: "Wifi for entertainment worked well"
Cons: "No longer have entertainment on back of seats"
Cons: "*Again, my first choice of main off the menu, in Delta One, had run out. *Not a fan of the Delta One seats."
Pros: "Nice views on the east side of the flight. Caught Mt. Rainier, Mt. Adams, Lake Tahoe, Yosemite Half Dome, Edwards AFB, downtown LA Free Gogo in-flight wifi allowed Google Maps to work well, though nothing else seemed to load. In-flight magazine was well-written."
Cons: "Flight ran a bit late due to departure congestion."
Pros: "Getting to China, albeit two days late."
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 entertainment system had a wide selection of good movies to watch."
Cons: "The seat was busted and could barely recline at all."
Pros: "Great staff, polite and helpful"
Cons: "Small seats"
Pros: "Very attentative."

Pros: "The cinnamon cookies, the in-flight movie selection, and the helpful flight crew helped make this flight not as bad as it could have been."
Cons: "There was an infant in the seat directly behind me that chose to cry and scream through a large part of the flight. The mother of this child did not/was not able to keep the child from crying. Even with headphones on, this child's crying persisted to pierce the ears of every passenger within 5 rows of it."
Pros: "Nice Pajamas. Individual window seat. Decent food."
Cons: "Seat ptich could be/should be - wider. Snacks can be better and have better option.. ( only Apple for a fruit? Gimme a break)"
Pros: "Nothing. Delta sucks!"
Cons: "Poor management prior boarding"
Pros: "The movies."
Cons: "Horrible food and Very very uncomfortable seats. Absolutely NO leg room. One of these days Delta is going to be sued for deep vein thrombosis (blood clot)."
Cons: "Crew forget to feed quarter of passenger, and did it after reminder from passenger. No movies with Russian translation or titles. Flight arrived at Amsterdam 50 min later, and we missed our direct flight to Kiev"
Pros: "Economy seats are comfortable. I wasn't compressed in any way sitting in a window seat. Delta is my go-to airline. Not always the least expensive, but it's usually a pleasant trip."
Pros: "Decent choice of entertainment options."
Cons: "Crew was racist, grumpy and dismissive. Boarding on and off the plane was chaotic to say the least."
Pros: "Delta used to be such a good quality airline, but lately, the fact that you have to pay for all checked luggage, small overhead compartments, and the over-selling of seats makes it feel cheap and less stable. I think the boarding process should start with people in the back of the airplane and fill the plane back to front. Boarding would be more efficient."
Pros: "Entertainment system was a plus"
Cons: "Boarding order. I was toward the back of the aircraft yet had to wait until last"
Cons: "Must have been an older Delta jet. It had no entertainment. The wifi was poor."
Cons: "Flight attendant seemed tired."
Pros: "Nice big plane, new technology"
Cons: "When landing in LAX we were unloaded far from anything and loaded into buses and taken to the terminal. It was like a weird sci-fi movie LOL."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Crew was very helpful"
Cons: "the staff were not knowledgeable on visa requirements at checkin in Reno. As a result my checkin took long at the counter. Small CRJ700 plane was cramped though fast."
Pros: "We landed safely; Beautiful infotainment screen that did NOT work"
Cons: "Extreme delays; Beautiful infotainment screen that did NOT work; Sitting on the runway/tarmac for hours"
Pros: "Good service. The crew was very attentive. The pilots were very good about relaying Typhoon related issues to the passengers; and doing their best to get us to our destination as close to on time as they could"
Cons: "American Airlines had put my luggage on a flight earlier than me and is still NOT FOUND."
Pros: "On time departure, early arrival. Comfortable journey. Our pilot was a woman! Go girl power!"
Cons: "The WiFi did not work. You couldn’t download the American Airlines app. The crew forgot to give me my complimentary drink. After attempting for 10 minutes, Gave up."
Cons: "Entertainment system went down toward the beginning of the flight. The crew seemed irritable, but that was probably because people were upset about the entertainment system. We had to listen to a loooong speech about their credit card. I, personally, don’t like sales pitches over the intercom in the middle of a flight. Had the movies been working, it would’ve paused during the long speech. Not cool at all!"
Pros: "Food and drink services were great.. friendly and accommodating"
Cons: "Seats are a tad uncomfortable for longer flights.."
Pros: "Organised, clean"
Cons: "Food... pizza... bad idea to serve during a flight. Moreover, the smell and the taste was bad"
Pros: "Very attentive.. good service.."
Cons: "Seats to tight.."
Pros: "We got to our destination safely, and American provided us with extra legroom seats."
Cons: "Service was curt and there was only phone-based entertainment."
Cons: "I had to put my carry on item 10 seats behind my seat location. That delayed my leaving of the plane to my next flight."
Pros: "Totally fine"
Cons: "It was fine"
Pros: "The boarding was efficient. The service was fine. The pilot was informative."
Cons: "Not enough time in London to change planes. We missed the flight"
Pros: "Crew made a special effort to find me a nondairy meal (which I had neglected to request)."
Cons: "Web page dysfunction meant we couldn't sign up for wifi. The page asked me to set security questions but the pulldown for the questions had no options to select from. I tried on multiple devices/browsers."
Pros: "The crew was amazing, flight was very smooth, arrived early, plane clean, service was great."
Cons: "For being in first class, my seat did not recline so I couldn't sleep and audio for my entertainment center was not working"
Cons: "Snacks were okay, nothing to shout about. Streaming movies is still of a mystery to me, not an intuitive experience in any sense of the word. the sites AA provides to answer one's questions don't give any real guidance on 'how', just state what, kept pointing me to the app which doesn't have any menu item to view movies. took me well over ten minutes to find any helpful information."
Pros: "The flight was great--good food, good service, good entertainment, on time."
Cons: "They lost our luggage. Four people traveling together arrived in Phnom Penh, but our luggage didn't. It took almost 2 days to be reunited with our luggage."
Pros: "The one flight attendant that realized how shitty of a situation they placed me in."
Cons: "American Airlines made me take all clothes out of carry-on, took my brand new AWAY bags, and made me stuff my clothes and other belongings into 5 plastic bags. All because they said my bag was illegal to fly on plane (whether it was checked in or not). Turns out they didn’t have to do that. What a crock."
Cons: "We are letting too many people with the flu, travel. This in turn is spreading it to other places and getting too many people sick. We need to control this more. I don’t have an option after spending all this money on if I can stay healthy or not, and that is not ok."
Pros: "Was able to change my seat"
Cons: "The tone of the flight attendant (male) who can through the cabin to check things before landing. He was brash and abrasive. Yes, safety first, but overall not a good look for someone in a customer service industry. you can accomplish the same goal with different delivery"
Pros: "All the staff were super friendly and warm. The customer service was top notch - beyond beyond amazing. The seats were comfortable. And the cups for our complimentary beverage weren't kids sized! I received a normal cup! The whole experience was a breath of fresh air."
Cons: "There was only one *tiny* negative... baggage. It would have exceeded my expectations if baggage was included instead of an additional fee. But this is wouldn't deter me from flying with American Airlines."
Cons: "Taking 2 shuttle buses to transfer from AA to PAL."
Pros: "Excellent, friendly attention from flight attendants."
Pros: "Flight was ok, staff was professional and friendly. A good cleaning would be great. I'm average height and light build for a woman but I find the seats really are snugger than ever."
Cons: "AA didn't notify me of their change to my itinerary so I missed my flight, they cancelled my return flight from Europe, and only offered to refund my ticket when I spoke to a supervisor. I drove 5.5 hours to another city to catch a flight to Europe, believing my return ticket was valid as AA first told me, only later to learn they cancelled it. Thanks to AA, I currently I have no return ticket. Others on this flight and on my later Iberia flight were cursing AA loudly so I don't think my issue is an anomaly, but is more likely AA's new standard of conduct."
Cons: "Self check-in staff at Seattle was not that helpful."
Pros: "we had all the necessary conditions for work, rest, sleep and eating. The level of service has increased"
Pros: "We flew with 4 different airlines on our trip to New Zealand and American Airlines was by far the best. We were comfortable and had plenty of good food and free entertainment. I would fly with American Airlines again."
Cons: "I can't think of anything."
Cons: "Gate agent said there was a maintenance problem that just needed maintenance to sign off. Over heard maintenance work while boarding that could not get message on computer of problem. Pushed back and sat on tarmac for 10-20 minutes as pilot said they worked through maintenance issue."
Pros: "Decent movies"
Cons: "Seats are incredibly close to one another. I'm pretty short (5'5") and I felt cramped to say the least. The food isn't great, it's okay but don't expect to be wanting seconds."
Cons: "We had purchased the tickets months before flying - It was Quantas, but we flew on American and Alaska- no one seemed to talk to each other - not one site had the complete itinerary. Took hours of phone calls and a lot of anxiety before we completed the trip. I used my American airline frequent flyer card and even though we flew over 14000 miles, we got credit for 500."
Pros: "AA has been good to me--- Gold card a big help."
Cons: "The LAX concourse could at least 2 more coffee shops in addition to Starbucks.The wait was 40 minutes at Starbucks to get a cup of coffee!!! Get on the ball LAX!! We need our caffine in the morning."
Pros: "My window seat"
Cons: "I wasn't able to check in to my flight 24 hours prior to my flight on my AA app and or website. Also wasn't able to check in at kiosk at airport therefore had to wait in line to check in with a clerk which slowed my whole trip mood down."
Pros: "Claudia was wonderful, I would love for more flight attendants to have her cheerful attitude."
Cons: "My snack was mini pretzels"
Pros: "Everything about the flight seemed fast. From the boarding process to the landing process. It was a very fast flight. Much faster than Southwest Airlines."
Cons: "It was a 6 am flight and the crew looked like it was a 6 am flight. No smiles. No energy. They looked like they didn't like their job. Maybe they needed coffee."
Pros: "Loved the people, very friendly and accommodating. I sat in first class and felt very comfortable."
Cons: "I think needing your own device for entertainment is awful then having to pay rental fees, even if you're in first class."
Pros: "Speed check in"
Pros: "Just wish the boarding was better"
Cons: "The kiosk didn't work and sent us to check-in from which they couldn't figure out why the tickets wouldn't work. There was only one attendant at the ticket counter for the entire airline. And finally when the problem was finally resolved we nearly missed the flight; despite being there nearly 2 hours early."
Cons: "no leg room"
Pros: "I liked the seats I paid for on the flight."
Cons: "American Airlines flight attendants are horrible! Unhappy, disgruntled and it shows! They are not a good reflection of JAL!"
Cons: "flight was delayed. long overlay. uncomfortable plane from lac to fat."
Cons: "Missing luggage is a common thing in British airway, which is not so common in other airways."
Cons: "Ear headphone jack would not turn down, you could hear the show from three seats away and the flight attendant was rude when I asked her for some different headphone to see if it would help. She acted like I was stupid and said "well did you turn it down?" Of course I tried that. I was very taken back by how she acted."
Pros: "The flight landed early. The Entertainment on the plane."
Cons: "When I got on, my seat mate spilled her coffee and almost got it on my clothes. The service felt rushed - the attendants seemed to want to clear the trays and sit in the galley chatting. They forgot to serve bread to the 2nd half of the First Class cabin and had to be reminded to do so. Definitely not their best day, so the experience could have been better."
Pros: "Delayed 4 hours"
Pros: "1 flight attendant, though not super sweet, was sincerely helpful & cared about my parents' ability to move about the plane safely. The others were a little rude/fake but I appreciated that 1. I also appreciated the help we received pushing my parents in wheelchairs at LAX once we finally did get them."
Cons: "No actual food (other than cheese) available for a 6-hour flight, to buy or for free, luckily my mother brought some food on board or I would've been very upset. Also, the entertainment touch-screen was completely unusable for my father & kept pausing/stopping for me, even with them resetting a few times. There is no internet/wifi for flights to/from Hawaii, AA should just be upfront about that bc I kept checking my connection but ended up looking at a map that showed nothing working over the Pacific ocean. We had to request a wheelchair for my elderly father at both gates (in LIH & LAX) even though we were assured there would be one waiting."
Pros: "expedited boarding, attentive staff"
Cons: "no video monitor, old plane, meh legroom. First class? Come on! What a waste of time and money. It's a cross-country trip, and yet, I've had more entertainment options on an hour-long flight. So so weak."
Pros: "STAFF WAS FRIENDLY"
Cons: "SEATS ARE VERY UNCOMFORTABLE"
Pros: "Good flight, love frontier"
Pros: "The flight was quicker than expected"
Cons: "There was a few bugs crawling in the seat in front of me onto my food tray"
Cons: "No food"
Cons: "Our flight out of Denver got CANCELED along with a whole bunch of others. Seems there were having crew issues, not the BS reasons corporate was saying. Lots of stranded people in Denver. We stood in line for 3 hours to get a refund. (we decided to go with another airline, some people had been stranded for a week!) One sad items was a soldier had been on deployment for TWO years and was trying to get home. He had been stranded since Friday (it was now Monday). The agent just shrugged and said get in line. Frontier should have booked him on another airline! Finally, a lady in line heard of his plight and bought him a ticket right there on the spot! (on another airline of course). SHAME ON FRONTIER. We will NOT fly them again! #NEVERFLYFRONTIER"
Cons: "Canceled my flight and my buddies flight when no other airlines did. Had poor customer service. Made me spend 1500 in one way flights"
Pros: "I loved how welcoming crew members were and how attentive they were. I also liked that when checking in the bag crew was very nice and tried to help and resolve any issues there were. They were professional and helpful. The trip was smooth and according to time."
Cons: "There was really nothing to complain about. Seat were a little uncomfortable, but when speaking to regular flyers they mentioned how flying is not very comfortable in any airline."
Cons: "The seats are very uncomfortable. To many little charges; i.e. Snack drinks, baggage going and coming, seat selection. I would consider taking another airline and paying a higher price. Faulty/broken arm rest. Flight attendants slightly rude/short with passengers. Initially, the flight was cheaper but ended up being the same cost as every other airline once all the additional charges were added. What I thought was a positive for this airline quickly became a negative outcome."
Pros: "The prices were reasonable."
Cons: "Check in personnel didn't arrive until and hour before the flight was scheduled to take off which left myself and every other passenger waiting in line for over an hour. The new seats look very nice, but are just hard plastic covered in faux leather leaving passengers with an uncomfortable experience. They did not recline, which wouldn't have been a problem if the tray tables weren't the size of an iPad mini. The seats were so close together you couldn't even rest forward onto the tiny tray tables without hitting your head on the persons seat in front of you. I am by no means a large person at only 5' 3" so I can only imagine how awful it was for tall people! For a three hour plane ride it would be better to go with any other company."
Pros: "Checking my bag was quick and easy but it would have been better had cash been accepted."
Cons: "Charging for a coke? Seriously?!?! The stewardesses were not very personable and ate and chatted amongst themselves for most of the flight."
Cons: "Seats are tiny, all in flight services are for charge. However, my main complaint lies with their horrible customer service. Our flight was delaid, ultimately cancelled, and no one from the frontier staff informed us of the change, why it was cancelled, or when we would be rebooked."
Pros: "Good Fly, nice atention and good landing"
Cons: "the seats do not recline"
Pros: "The flight itself was OK considering the price."
Cons: "My luggage (and those of a few other passengers) did not arrive with me and I spent one hour for bagage claim. There was no clear reason for that: it was a direct flight and the luggage was registered two hour before the departure. However the luggage was finally delivered to my hotel the next morning."
Pros: "What is to like?"
Cons: "They honey dick you with the cheap plane tickets then screw you over at the the counter when they charge an unnecessary amount for carry on baggage. I WILL NEVER FLY FRONTIER AGAIN. Not to mention the meal trays can barely hold a lunch-able... Go home frontier airlines.. your drunk."
Pros: "Seats were wider than most airlines and there seemed to be a couple of inches more legroom, but the seats were thin and not very comfortable."
Cons: "Unexpected fee for carry-on baggage. Who ever heard of being charged for a CARRYON? The airline provides no service with carry-on luggage- all the work is done by the customer."
Cons: "When I got to the gate, I was told that I had to pay $45 for my carry on luggage, which I found it to be somewhat insulting (if I had agreed to check-in the luggage it would have been 'cheaper' only $40). This was the first time I had ever been asked to pay for my carry-on luggage, and the basis for me to never fly Frontier ever again. They claim that it was because of the ticket I purchased through a third party, and I told them that they should not advertise any tickets where you intend to charge people for their carry-on luggage. To make things worse, it appears that Frontier does not participate with the TSA pre-check program, and even though I had my global entry card with me, the officer at TSA pre-check would not allow me through this line because of the airline I was flying with - Never again!!! I suspect that on my way back I'll be forced to pay another $45 for my carry-on luggage, which I despise."
Pros: "I liked who I sat next to."
Cons: "We had to pay for our carry on, our phones wouldn't scan for the ticket, lines were long, I had to run all the way back to print our tickets out, women working outside of the gate were so rude, no tv, thin and uncomfortable seats, just overall disappointing."
Cons: "Frontier nickel and dimes you for everything: on top of the ticket price, you must pay for your seats, carry-on, you name it! The seats are horribly uncomfortable--no reclining!"
Pros: "Check in was done quickly"
Cons: "Paying up to $60 for a carry on. Waiting on the runway for 30 minutes with no communication from the pilot when we landed in Denver."
Pros: "The plane didn't crash."
Cons: "Many years ago, I was an Early Rewards member who flew Frontier any time I could. No longer. The ticket price no longer resembles what you will pay. Now they charge $15-35 to get a seat,another $30-$35 to check or carry on each piece, and sit in uncomfortable seats that do not recline. These extra charges cause long delay at the check in counter even if I already checked in and only needed to check a bag because everyone else had to pay. Now I'll only fly Frontier if there is no alternative."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats, they did not recline. Crew kept talking loudly at the back and it was hard to sleep ."
Cons: "Fee's for luggage and carry ons. In other airline its already included Fee's for luggage and carry ons. In other airline its already included Delayed flight"
Cons: "What? Wouldnt you think your ticket would actually mean you'd purchased a seat on your flight? Not with Frontier. Extra cost for your seat - ANY seat. And for your carry-on bag. Seats are nearly unbrearably thin and stiff. No recline. No headrest. Miniature tray. Knees push against the seat in front. And not an inexpensive ticket to begin. Last Frontier flight for me."
Pros: "Cheap fare."
Cons: "The remodeled interior puts the seats closer together from front to back and don't recline. That also limits the size of the tray table, which is tiny. Even as a tiny, short person, it was uncomfortable. For anyone of normal stature it would be torture. Paying for a "better" seat appears to provide very little if any added benefit, just keeps your party together. There is no entertainment, movies, music, or wifi so bring your battery pack charger. There is only expensive junk food to eat. My only option on my coast to coast flight was a red eye. So you arrived just wiped out. So if you do this to save money, in my overall assessment, it's just not worth it. I'll never do it again."
Pros: "Cheap if you have baggage."
Cons: "Cheap. No included snacks or drinks. No real tray table. Seats don't recline. Have to pay for all bags."
Pros: "Great company, good service, no complaints"
Cons: "You have to pay for food"
Cons: "Didn't like being misled on price. Charges for "a bag" and "a seat" were not made known until AFTER the reservation was made. Refer to the original business/pricing model. 1. Everyone has some baggage. Deal with it. Enforce carry on limits 100% and openly offer check bag at a reasonable price. 2. Seats are NOT a profit option. Seats are increasingly uncomfortable, cramped and added with premium charges. Finally, the travel experience should be a pleasant and memorable one, considering the time strapped in a seat. Its OK to have Coach & Premium seating, but stop adding "option pricing" for an increasingly poor experience. I will not fly Frontier again."
Cons: "They nickel and dime you to death. Leg room is horrible if your over 4 feet tall."
Pros: "When the troubles started the staff was friendly and apologetic. They tried to help as best they could ands I watched them deal with rude customers with kindness. The flight is bate bones so no food or entertainment to review"
Cons: "We got stuck in Denver for 12 hours workout knowing what was going on. We had to go hunting for answers."
Pros: "Both flights boarded quickly, left on time, and both flights arrived several minutes early. Good winds or whatever really helped with my first impression of your airline. Clean plane, courteous staff."
Cons: "While I know it's not included in your fares, I really am used to a cup of coffee or a coke when I fly."
Pros: "Flight was cancelled due to weather.. we understand. Leaving my 70 yr old mother at the gate for 8 hours...not cool.Tried calling airport, Frontier airlines...and besides giving my m,om a place on next flight at 6 30 am. No one and I mean no one at Frontier tried to help us get a safe place for my mom. Instead we got an international call center with a nice operator that did not understand us. You really need a call center in America, with real people that belong to our culture. Stop sending our customer service off our country...and for a change hire americans. By the way I need you to give my mom 5 free flights to Denver and to San Diego Round trip. Thanks!"
Pros: "Price was right for a last minute fare. Quick boarding. Great crew."
Cons: "SEATS ARE HORRIBLE! I'm not very tall, 5'10", and I could not move, with my knees jammed into the seat in front. Good thing it was only a 2 hr flight. I despise having to pay extra FOR EVERYTHING. Luckily my trip is only three days (for a sudden unexpected family funeral) and didn't bring much, so my bag fit under the seat...$60 to have regular carry on round trip?!? CRAZY!"
Cons: "Baggage fees were ridiculous and the seats were very uncomfortable. Take off and landings were very rough."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 2 hours, and they didn't even offer coffee or refreshment on the plane as compensation for our delay since we missed our dinner with our loved ones."
Pros: "Very nice crew. Smooth boarding - quick and efficient."
Cons: "Seats very uncomfortable."
Pros: "It got me from A-B"
Cons: "This airline has gone downhill. Charging for carry on luggage and seat selection. No entertainment or Wifi. uncomfortable seats that do not recline. No complimentary ANYTHING. People will say this is the future, but the future is bleak. I will most likely not fly this airline again."
Pros: "Super low rate - on time flight a day after a massive storm blanketed Denver with a foot of snow. I assume I have to pay for each breath I take on a Frontier flight so it's never a surprise. A la carte is fine with me when a 3,000 mile round trip is $81.- Nice attendant at luggage check-in moved me to a window seat which was appreciated."
Cons: "Frontiers website is the worst in the airline industry."
Pros: "We had a flight attendant that yelled at passengers to "sit down! Right now!" When I asked if they could take my water cup they snapped at me and told me that I needed to wait. Waiting wasn't the problem, but aren't flight attendants supposed to be nice? No where does it say that military get free bags I wound up paying 70 this trip that could have been avoided."
Pros: "Getting off the plane."
Cons: "Everything else."
Cons: "They charged me for my carry on at the gate!"
Cons: "Charging for water? Really?? Charge me a carry on fee, a checked luggage fee and forcing me to pay a carry on fee for my PERSONAL ITEM that fits under the seat??? You've got to be kidding me."
Pros: "I did appreciate the low fare."
Cons: "Its weird to keep seeing all the things you have to pay extra for that other airlines just provide."
Cons: "Bad service, expensive everything"
Cons: "AWFUL. I arrived at the airport 1 hour and 10 minutes before my flight. I attempted to check in at a kiosk, which failed and I was told to line up to see a clerk. I got in the ticketing/check-in line and was waiting for a while when a clerk asks if anyone was flying to San Diego and that they were in the wrong line. I was redirected to the additional services line, and when I finally saw the clerk, was told that I had missed the 45 minute check-in deadline. They refused to help me look for another flight, and was told my ticket was nonrefundable even though the misdirection was the airline's fault and their lack of communication. They should've posted signs if passengers on a specific flight needed to be in a specific line for check-in. Furthermore, their lack of willingness to rectify the situation was just a poor demonstration of customer service. I will definitely not be flying with Frontier ever again."
Cons: "I have flown on several different airlines thru out my lifetime but Frontier is the worst. All other airlines give you soda and coffee for free. Frontier charges you $1.99 with a credit card for a cup of coffee. I flew from DIA to San Diego Dec 23,2015 with a carry on bag. But coming Home from San Diego to DIA Dec 27.2015 my bag grew 2"inches longer and I was forced to pay a extra $45.00. It's was the same carry on bag I took to San Diego. I travel a lot and know many people all over the United States who travel and I would not ever return flying FRONTIER or would I recommend it to anyone else. P.S. I measure my carry one bag before I left Denver. Poor service!!!!!"
Pros: "$60 for a standard carry on roller bag at gate (didn't know they're ridiculous rules), extremely rude gate staff, uncomfortable seats that don't recline, they charge for a soda and can only give you 2 cups of water before they charge you for a bottle. No vomit bags and everyone was nauseas during landing!!! All in all, two big anxiety attacks later, I arrived at my destination. Worth the extra $75 to be at peace and happy and actually be taken care of!!"
Cons: "Flight attendant put his dick in my face!!!"
Cons: "I usually don't care too much about my flights from LA to Seattle since it's only a 2 hour flight. This was my first time with spirit and it was horrible from start to finish. Staff was unfriendly checking my bag in (I had to pay $82 for ONE checked bag), boarding the plane was a complete unorganized mess, the flight was bumpy and uncomfortable, the beverage I asked for on the flight was out of stock, the landing was horrific. By far, worst 2 hours on a plane I've ever experienced."
Pros: "2 hrs"
Cons: "2 hrs delay. With not notifying. No updates and No one was at the gate until last second to boarding. This is my 2nd time with spirit. And the same happened. I Never ho with spirit. I had to pay for laugage that all airlines have a free carry on."
Pros: "Spirit is a low cost airline. You save money flying with them as long as you only bring one personal item and print your boarding pass from home."
Cons: "Leg room is small and not comfortable for taller people. There is nothing provided in the flight."
Cons: "charge too expensive for baggages.delay too long."
Pros: "I liked that the fare was cheap."
Cons: "Self-deprecating jokes from the crew about how they charge for bags, food, and oxygen."
Pros: "very good service and price,"
Pros: "The crew was hilarious and was by far the best part of the flight!"
Cons: "Spent $180 for carry on's round trip. Would have been $400 if we hadn't been told before we reached the gate. I repeat, CARRY ON, not checked luggage. Tip: check in online before you fly out with Spirit, otherwise they nickel and dime you for everything: printing your boarding pass, carry on, etc. The seats are small, your tray is a joke, and your seat will not recline. Good luck!"
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "Prior to boarding our flight we sat for two hours while agents acted like 16-year-old lifeguards with bullhorns… Loud, obnoxious, and loving to hear themselves repeating info over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over"
Pros: "Boarding was very smooth. Pilot was really good. Safe landing. Quick baggage claim."
Cons: "Food was really expensive. Seats were very uncomfortable."
Cons: "Constant pitching and threatening about paying for bags. Constant yammer on the plane about offers etc. Money, Money, Money is all they talk about!!!!"
Pros: "Hard to like anything when I was already in a bad mood because of the delay."
Cons: "Flight was 3 hours late. I had to wait with my daughter and mother for 3 hours until we finally boarded at 1AM."
Cons: "I missed my flight because I had the wrong flight info so ended up buying another ticket and booking a hotel!!"
Pros: "decent crew. i love the cut and dry-point a to b flights that are cheap."
Cons: "doesnt seem to be your fault, but both flights (cheapest) went through LAX. and both flights were 2+ hours delayed. either go through another airport or i'll pay a little more for much, much better service."
Cons: "First of all I tried to check in online to avoid the $52 per bag (wtf??!!!) fee. But their shitty website wouldn't let me. When we got to the airport the girl that checked us in was nice enough (I guess) to charge us the online check in price- $42 per bag. Still ridiculous and the weight limit is 40 lbs not 50. She had SOOOO much trouble doing this. She probably asked me 5 times if we (my bf and I) were both checking a bag. I know pot is legal in WA but come on. Finally we get our bags checked and paid for. Already annoyed. We waited forever to board. Probably started boarding 15/20 mins before our flight time. It was the same type of plane that I flew to Seattle in- so uncomfortable. The seats are awful and they don't even recline. The seat "pocket" in front of you is literally bungee cord so you can't put anything in it. And the tray table is TINY. No tv, no music, no blanket or pillow (9:40pm flight you'd think they would know people want to sleep). Just awful all together. So uncomfortable. I received an email from Spirit asking me to fill out a customer service survey- the link didn't work! Big surprise!!! They're probably sick of hearing all the complaints! Never flying with them again."
Pros: "I liked the fact that because of a death in my family and plans having to abruptly change, I was assisted greatly by the Seattle staff."
Cons: "I don't know how you get away with charging what you do for checked luggage, AND THEN for carry on's as well, but you should be ashamed of yourself. TRULY."
Pros: "The price."
Cons: "Because we didn't pay for luggage ahead of time, being charged $52 for a small suitcase was shocking."
Pros: "clean, kind crew"
Cons: "payment for check on luggage payment for non-alcoholic beverages"
Pros: "First your tickets are pricey then the baggage fees are stupid dumb why pay so much i dont understand but this is definitely the first and last time id fly with spirit"
Cons: "First your tickets are pricey then the baggage fees are stupid dumb why pay so much i dont understand but this is definitely the first and last time id fly with spirit"
Cons: "I didn't realize that I have 0 carry-ons and 0 checked bags. Checked bags were slightly less expensive than a carryon so I brought a larger checked bag with me for the smaller price. It's a steep price though! $83 round trip. It would have been nice if Kayak put some kind of tag on flights that don't include carryon/checked bags, or let me choose how many of each I needed and factored those into the flight costs when I do my price search."
Pros: "Quick boarding, on time flights, good communication from captain"
Cons: "Spirit nickel and dimes you for everything!! Also there was an elderly man who could barely walk and no one from spirit or airlines helped him. You charge to have someone check you in?? Horrible!"
Pros: "What I like most is the friendly staff"
Cons: "$55 FOR CARRY ON. NEVER AGAIN WILL I FLY THIS AIRLINE. WHEN YOU ADD THE CARRY ON FEE I COULD HAVE TRAVELED FOR LESS WITH FULL SERVICE AIRLINE AT A MORE CONVIENT TIME"
Pros: "Easy service and fast"
Cons: "That they literly charge you for everything every single luggage"
Cons: "Online experience left something to be desired. Not very user friendly."
Pros: "No frills"
Cons: "No frills"
Pros: "I did arrive alive"
Cons: "When I arrived they did not even have a gate assigned. Carry on bags cost $55 each way. Water on the flight cost $3. Everything about the plane and airline were cheep but they charged crazy prices for everything. The tickets are cheep but they rob u for everything once you have bought the ticket"
Pros: "Good prices to pay to travel, flight was safe and fast"
Cons: "Hmmm well just that the water and the snacks were chargeable not like other airlines"
Pros: "That it was cheap."
Pros: "I really appreciate the Flight Crew making me feel comfortable and finding me a seat with more leg room!"
Cons: "My flight was cancelled"
Pros: "The plane was clean. Staff seemed friendly."
Cons: "Paying $55 for carry on bags was atrocious. We boarded 30 mins late. and my gate was changed last minute. We didn't even get free drinks on the plane. Only 2 bathrooms in whole plane."
Pros: "Chairs were pretty comfy I guess."
Cons: "Flight delayed 4 times. Buying a regular priced ticket with any other airline would've been cheaper than this airline co. Baggage prices are raised without warning so buy early!!"
Cons: "You have to pay for drinks. Water everything"
Cons: "I will never USE SPIRIT AGAIN its better to just pay that little bit more with any other airline"
Cons: "Had to pay $90 for carry on bag!! So ridiculous. I could see an extra $30 round trip but $90!??!?!! Also you have to oay for everything but if I wanted to pay that much I would jist go to another airline....better service at pretty much every other airline. Even air asia that lost my bag for 4 days was better than this. Never again."
Cons: "$50 dollars to check in a bag when I thought it would be $25 and the weight limit was only 40 lbs"
Cons: "There were no updates at all and suddenly the flight was cancelled. They offered no help to us, and they still haven't refunded me. I will NEVER fly with this airline again."
Pros: "They Charge for a Drink of Water"
Cons: "You shouldn't have to pay $3.00 for a drink of water. $60.00 for round trip fee for my roll-aboard that always fits in the overhead seems unreasonable especially since my weight plus the weight of the bag was probably less than the weight of most of the adults on the flight All extra fees should be disclosed before a person clicks to buys a ticket."
Pros: "Price was low and that's about it. But I'd much rather pay extra $100 to fly on a better airline. Price equals out to be similar anyway."
Cons: "Everything else was absolutely terrible. Ticketing. Departure. Service. Landing. Arrival. Everything. I will not be using this airline again."
Cons: "Spirit airlines"
Pros: "The flight to LAX did arrive a few minutes early."
Cons: "EVERYTHING! The flight crew offered absolutely no refreshments, by purchase or otherwise, en route to LAX. I'm shocked and disgusted at the charges to use the overhead bins in-flight. At LAX, they announced that they were boarding for everyone and then we stood waiting an additional 10 minutes because no one was at the kiosk."
Pros: "The flight was smooth. Great take off and landing."
Cons: "Flight update miscommunications stating our flight was delayed by over 35 minutes when the flight was actually pushed to depart 10 minutes earlier than the original departure time. The gate attendant did not even attempt to explain the error and just rudely ignored all the passengers asking about the departure time changes. I received a final email update after our flight had departed from the Seattle. Poor customer service."
Cons: "I felt like there were hidden fees, I booked on kayak and did not realize I would be charged extra to bring any luggage or pick a seat or even have a drink of water, the plane was late, seats were uncomfortable, tray table was a joke, flight attendants were not funny and lackadaisical"
Pros: "Fast and convenient. Everything was on time and worked well."
Cons: "I wasn't aware of how little was included with you ticket. The seats weren't comfortable or adjustable. The plane was hot and stuffy."
Cons: "Multiple delays."
Pros: "Price only"
Cons: "Overcharge for bags coffee and water"
Pros: "I had the entire role of seats to myself on my return flight from LA to Seattle"
Cons: "The amount of space to stretch out and sleep"
Pros: "Very organized"
Cons: "Can't complain about anything it was a great value and easy flight that was on time both trips."
Cons: "Charging $55 for a carry-on in order to make your tickets appear cheaper on sites like Kayak.com is a total scam."
Pros: "Flight was fast."
Cons: "Extremely unprofessional staff from the moment I walked up to the gate to leave Los Angeles Friday morning, to the moment I returned Monday night. I didn't think there was actually such thing as a "bad airline" until I flew Spirit. I'm sure there are plenty of complaints for little things, but this airline was truly bothersome and very uncomfortable, especially when the airplane was about land and one a male flight attendant began flicking the lights and laughed after. No airline should treat guests in such a way."
