Pros: "Crew was great. Seat was perfect."
Pros: "The crew was nice. My seat was ripped. There was some type of tape by the window. The flight was late and wasn’t informed"
Cons: "Communication with travelers if a flight will be late and better aircraft"
Pros: "Easy boarding..nice cust service at gate jfk"
Cons: "One hour delay waiting for gate at miami"
Cons: "Too many people on flight during Covid"
Pros: "Jet blue was amazing. They bit only upgraded my seats but they took care of what Hawaiian airlines refused to do due to the virus. Hawaiian cancled my flight home with no notification or warning. Jet blue picked up where they failed and not only rebooked my flight home for me, but contacted Hawaiian on my behalf so it would not cost me any more money. Jet blue was amazing"
Pros: "The seats were pretty comfortable."
Cons: "It would be nice if the flight attendant was a bit more friendly. Smile works."
Pros: "Free on board WiFi and a very clean plan... JetBlue you are the best"
Pros: "All of it. I really like the eye masks for the red eye flight and the snacks are bomb!!!!!!!!"
Pros: "Arrived early! Smooth takeoff and landing no unnecessary cabin announcements (it was a red eye)"
Cons: "Free food beyond chips"
Pros: "Jet Blue just seems to go the extra mile. Everything seems just a click nicer than American and United."
Cons: "Nothing in particular. The crew made it as pleasant an experience as possible."
Cons: "The flight was SIX hours late, yet passengers were told to check in at the original time. Why? Just to spend the whole freaking night at the airport? The reason for the delay was supposedly weather, yet flights from SEA to BOS on other airlines were on time. Staff were not helpful or empathetic."
Pros: "Lots of leg room, love the personal entertainment system. I’ve never been in first class but that looked better than the other planes I’ve been on too!! Meditations for anxious flyers?? Wonderful!"
Cons: "Only thing that could’ve been better was getting my booze for free. Otherwise, I was legitimately surprised at how great the accomodations were!"
Pros: "Crew was nice, comfortable leg space."
Cons: "Bought one of the Mediterranean snack boxes. The bean dip as well as the hummus tasted terrible. Couldn't eat it."
Cons: "Too hot. They need to turn off the blue light for a red eye..."
Pros: "The gate process to boarding was excellent"
Cons: "There was broken TVs no running water so no hot beverages no bathrooms on a 2 hour flight and I’m pregnant so that was u comfortable and the flight attendants were not very accommodating or helpful in fact almost boarder line rude if they say something mean but use a nice voice that doesn’t make it acceptable"
Pros: "It's so sad that passengers cannot be offered even water to drink."
Cons: "Nothing to drink. But I really appreciate the spacious leg room."
Pros: "Quick boarding left on time comfortable seats overall best flying experience I have had"
Pros: "Excellent Jet Blue experience from Baggage Check in at counter and flight attendants . Very personal ; customer service."
Cons: "Nothing; everything very good!"
Pros: "It was great and easy."
Cons: "Pets were allowed on the flight, and we had no prior knowledge of this. I happened to be allergic to furry animals, especially cats and dogs. There were two dogs on board, one in a row toward the front and one in the back. There was nowhere that I could go and allergens were probably circulated in the system. There was also a terrible odor that several others said they could also smell. The attendant said that there was nothing that could be done, and we suffered through the entire flight. Also, the TV control was broken and there was no option to turn off the TV. The attendant said that there would be a $25 voucher issued for compensation. We have not heard a peep from anyone!"
Pros: "Seating is comfortable!staff,helpful"
Cons: "Delay...was not made up in flight..."
Pros: "The flight was good. My credit card/wallet... leather brown.... was lost after going through security in seattle and has not been found"
Cons: "Being rushed after being searched. The fact that no one assisted as was requested for a non medical assist."
Pros: "We got in ahead of schedule."
Cons: "The staff seemed tired and overworked. I got hit in the head by a flight attendant with the snack tray. An accident but still. Once we landed and we’re at the gate it took almost 40 min to get off the plane. That was ridiculous. Then after the long walk to baggage, luggage was still not there. Again we waited. Too much waiting after a long flight. I fly to NYC all the time and I’m usually in the city one hour after I land and it took 2 hours 15 min to get to Queens. Usually I have great flights with JetBlue. Last night was not the case. You get a C."
Pros: "Flight attendants were great."
Cons: "Red eye flight was delayed over an hour. Caused me to miss my connection in the AM, my two new options were an out of state airport or a six hour wait at the airport. Unfortunately the girl who sat next to me had panic attacks and ‘seizures’ the whole flight long, requesting medical personnel on board and the constant attention of the attendants. No sleep to be had. By far my worst experience flying all around."
Cons: "Seat was not comfortable. Something was wrong with the cushion."
Pros: "I loved how new the plane was. It felt modern unlike nearly every other plane I’ve been on. Complimentary eye mask and ear plugs are a fantastic touch. Great crew. Kyayak app made it very easy"
Cons: "Paid $80 for preferred seating. Got leg room, but no tv and you can’t have any carry on bags on the floor, only in overhead."
Pros: "The eye mask really helped me sleep on the redeye. Super friendly staff. Left late but still arrived mostly on time."
Cons: "No food. Can't turn off TV when ads are playing."
Cons: "Checking in was difficult for me. My husband was able to check in through the cruise line. when we got to the airport the counter was not open. i checked in but did not get a seat assignment. When we got to the gate our flight to Boston was delayed until 3am from midnight. I tried getting a seat assignment but was told I had to wait until all the other flights were taken care of. I finally got my seat with my husband after 10p. I am a very nervous flyer so this was very nerve racking for me. But once I got my seat I calmed down. We always fly Jet Blue when we can. The flight itself was wonderful. And the counter folks were very patient with the customers dealing with delays."
Pros: "Spacious legroom! Complimentary soft drink, coffee"
Cons: "30 min late departure"
Pros: "Smooth, great service and snacks, loved the gluten free healthy snack options"
Cons: "Too cold in cabin"
Pros: "They were prompt and friendly!"
Pros: "Seems like slightly more leg room on this flight than some of the competitors"
Cons: "TV system was broken on our flight (which was long, SEA-BOS), and there was only one chance to have a snack (which I missed)."
Pros: "Deplaning from the rear was great. Allowed us to get off quickly. They offered a variety of snacks and had space for our carry ones."
Cons: "Landing was rough."
Cons: "Center seat. It seems the only way to get a good seat is to pay for it:("
Pros: "The crew is always friendly and helpful"
Pros: "The crew seemed capable and came around a couple times with water. We arrived safe and sound as one would hope for, if an hour or so later than scheduled. Seats seemed roomier than most standard economy/coach (probably due to it being an older model). Though I didn’t partake they seemed to offer more complimentary snack options than other airlines."
Cons: "The airplane cabin had a strong urine odor that endured throughout the red-eye flight, the air temperature had to have been at least 75 degrees, probably 80 which was a bit stifling. No usb/power at the seat which would be preferable/should be standard by now for a coast-to-coast flight. Seat didn’t recline which isn’t the end of the world but a bit of a bummer. My headphones didn’t work with the little screen at my seat but it’s ok because based on my neighbor’s screen it was just a rotating lineup of Jet Blue commercials/fake tv shows that I can easily pass on."
Pros: "Great stewards and stewardesses, clean, comfortable leg room"
Cons: "Seat doesn't go back much. Movie selection not great."
Pros: "Attendants were friendly and customer service focused the entire flight. Good leg room for a 6 foot one inch male."
Cons: "Seats a little firm."
Pros: "Crew was very nice"
Pros: "The woman at the check in desk was great in helping me to find a decent seat."
Cons: "Your web system did not allow me to choose a seat and wasted a lot of my time. Blue chips are now mixed with sweet potato, ruining the experience."
Pros: "My luggage arrived but traveling companions did not very very frustrating"
Pros: "Crew members were nice and professional."
Pros: "We landed safely."
Cons: "It was freezing. We boarded 1 1/2 hours late. The stewards were a bit short and not very patient. I saw people being allowed to board with way more bags than you said were permitted and some of the on plane bags were so huge that the front people had to check their bags at the last minute. Boarding was slow as it was clear that the stuff was not fitting in the overhead compartments. What happened to dimensions of bag restrictions? It is frustrating to the people that abide by the rules to see them so flagrantly ignored."
Pros: "TV option. Being able to get in and out of plane on both ends... at least at long beach. Getting a whole can to drink instead of the usual 3 oz of beverage. Timely"
Cons: "When you want people to volunteer check their carry ons, it would be nice to havean immediate pick up option on the tarmac - would be a lot more willing if I didn't have to wait 20-30 minutes for others' convenience"
Pros: "The boarding process was good. Other airlines should adopt the 'boarding from the back of the plane to the front' process."
Cons: "But everything else about the flight was not great. The crew was slow (though they were polite and friendly). Movie and TV show selections were not bad, but the sound quality was so terrible that it was impossible to hear the movie."
Pros: "My experience was definitely improved because I happened to be traveling with my elderly mother, who needed wheelchair assistance. Thanks to her, we boarded early and had aisle seats near the front."
Cons: "My tray table was broken. I'm tired of the same unimaginative snack choices."
Crew was nice and accommodating, but someone failed to inspect the plane before the passengers got on and we ended up deplaning and changing planes when this could have been avoided.
Nothing everything was very good🙌🏻
I had my 2 year old and hate checked my stroller and when I got to Miami there was no crew to bring it up they told me so I had to carry a sleeping child and my carry on along with my making sure my 5 year old was with me. Then my stroller wasn’t even with my bags it was on a domestic arrivals. Horrible experience.
Flight was delayed by one hour, then another 1/2 hour then cancelled and changed till the next day. We were not allowed to get our luggage & put up in a dirty hotel. I had cockroaches in the bathroom. When I finally arrived home…i noticed the airline had damaged the zipper on my suitcase. An awful awful trip thanks to American Airlines.
Given Covid protocols, it is still baffling to me how these planes can be so overcrowded. But the flight in general was okay.
Once we got on the flight everything was fine. The first leg of our flight was delayed 3 times but American sent us emails allowing us to chose a new itinerary.
Pros: "The crew was amazing and very personable!"
Pros: "Boarded easy"
Cons: "Not making me miss my connecting flight home by refueling on Nassau for over 2 hours"
Pros: "The crew was amazing and we arrived early! It was the perfect flight!"
Cons: "It sure what could have been better other than all bulkhead seats are terrible for taller people."
Cons: "Very friendly and safe staff"
Pros: "Flight 1751 Miami to Cleveland 1/11/21. Flight attendants did not enforce mask policy! Family of four sick sneezing, coughing, short of breath. The fathers mask was down the entire flight. Even when the flight attendants picked up the trash. They were informed after the flight they did not comply with CDC, Department of health, and state policies. Their response was “ I made announcements overhead. Didn’t you hear?”. Appalling endangering customers and disregarding Federal, State, and local policies."
Cons: "People promoting safety and doing their job."
Pros: "Crew and pilot were great."
Cons: "The plane was absolutely PACKED during the peak of a global pandemic. Completely irresponsible to not have people spaced out by at least one seat."
Cons: "I was in the only full row on the plane. The flight attendant waited until we couldn’t move to offer us to move to empty rows. By the time we were able to move, the other people in the row were sleeping. I wanted to stretch but couldn’t. Not a great way to start 2021."
Cons: "Could not checking or do anything from the app unlike others"
Pros: "Me rompieron el equipaje"
Pros: "Smooth ight"
Cons: "Need to add cabin service"
Cons: "Departed 1 hour late."
Pros: "The seat was a caca"
Cons: "Pagar una maleta pequeña mortifica"
Pros: "Flight was so smooth"
Pros: "The cleanliness and the seat arrangements"
Cons: "Snacks could have been given & Small bottled water."
Cons: "Crowded and hot just like Miami"
Cons: "First time wearing face mask all the time. It was okay."
Cons: "Passenger that sat next to me occupied part of my seat."
Pros: "Good range of entertainment, comfortable seats."
Cons: "Some dinner choices had become unavailable by the time I ordered."
Pros: "Good entertainment, seats were ok."
Cons: "I paid for a seat with extra leg room and then was told at the gate that there were none of those seats left, despite the fact that I booked and paid for that seat 3 weeks ago!"
Pros: "The crew were nice, glad I paid for the extra legroom."
Cons: "The food was only so-so, but it’s only a short flight so you can’t expect too much."
Cons: "No food on the International flight from Kingston to Miami."
Pros: "Generally, the stewardess are new (slow service), but very kind and considerate."
Cons: "I take this flight quite a lot. These comments are for this flight (MIA/MSP) - but not necessarily only for this exact flight that I took on 10/1. To be clear - the crew says "this is not AA", it is Republic Airlines". Well, they must think of themselves very poorly. Their food in first class is always changing - oh, I meant only the names for the same exact meal change. "Grilled Chicken with Couscous", "Grilled Chicken with Risotto", etc.. - all cold meals as they do not have an oven/microwave? on the plane. They are charging first class international prices for economy domestic service. For this amount of money, they should have better meals and a more modern airplane. The first class is always freezing (even in summer) while the rear cabin where the crew stays when not working, is hot. So if they make the first class happy with the correct temperature, they cook in the back. I have also observed more people than usual coughing and getting colds - both ways - than any of the other flights I take regularly (over 115,000 miles on AA this year). I would suggest that AA make it clear that Republic must offer better service to their customers - especially for the large airfares they are receiving."
Pros: "The plane was not busy so services took about 5 minutes, everyone had 2 seats minimum and generally quiet. Had it been busy, it would have been different in that seats were not very wide, aisles very small, if the seat in front reclines and you don't, you can't see your screen and not a lot of space in general."
Cons: "If you want to select your seat, be prepared to pay £175 per flight. This is ridiculous! Second meal was a very bare bbq beef pie or sweet potato pie... On their own with nothing else and it arrived 30 minutes before we landed so very rushed. On a 9.5hr flight the 2nd meal needed to be an actual meal and come sooner than it did."
Pros: "Flight crew were very apologetic"
Cons: "Missed connecting flight from Miami. Only one flight per day. Had to take a flight to an alternative location, drive for an hour down the coast and take a ferry to my final destination."
Cons: "Boarding could be improved if they would start boarding from the back of the plane to the front after boarding 1st class and Priority this way people would not block the passage when putting their luggage in the top compartments. The crew was not very helpful because I almost went into a hypothermia condition because the air in the cabin was extremely cold. When I ask for a blanket one of the stewardesses said that AA would no longer have blankets in flight which I prove it wrong when I saw in the flight Mai-SDQ blanquets all over the cabin. The soliton they gave me was that they would ask the crew to raise the temp in the cabin, I had to make the request three times and I had to tell the stewardess that if not raising the temperature in the cabin I could have gone into an emergency hypothermia crisis. I had to take another shirt from my carry-on to put it over my shirt to warm me up."
Pros: "I had to buy new clothes after lost bag and since bag had been lost twice during my trip, I was reluctant to check the bag. It was of size to cram into my carry on so I did that, but American staff demonstrated concern, had a sense of humor and helped me get a comfortable seat to sort of take some of the sting away. All that was great of them I was aware of being in an upgraded seat. No complaints, but it stung a little because I was deeply aware of the reinforcement of class. The small, extra comforts were wonderful and I wish everyone had them while risking their lives together over the ocean - especially the extra room At times, on the way over I felt a claustrophobic panic. But to stay positive, they were kiind, sympathetic, funny, sweet. I appreciate them."
Cons: "The original booked flight was about 12 hours before the rebooked flight. We got up at about 2:00 am to leave for the airport at 3:30 am for a 6:30 am flight. We were all packed and booked our ride and shuttinlpg down the computer at the last minute when we noticed an mail after midnight telling us the flight was cancelled. We called and were told there was nothing they could do, due to connections and this was entirely their fault. Approximately 12 hours later we took a “red eye” thus arriving a day late for our hotel and car reservations. We were charged baggage fees and not sure if our priority boarding will be refunded."
Cons: "My flight from SFO to Miami was delayed so I missed my connection to Rio and now I’m NYC on my birthday instead of my final destination. The flight status was changed 7 times. And AA said they would get my bag off but they did not and now I have to wait at JFK and hope it got rerouted here. And if it didn’t to hope it can on another flight before I hopefully actually get on a flight for Rio. Nobody has comped me for losing a day in Rio and for my hotel room. And this has been the worst flight exeperience or my life which unfortunately landed on my birthday. One I’ll remember in a sad and bad way. American Airlines refused to compensate me because I got my tickets via Kayak and I haven’t been able to find a number to complain to a Kayak agent whom I sure would say I had to contact American Airlines and nobody would help or take responsilvitu for this disaster."
Pros: "seats are very uncomfortable I know they can make a plane with a wide enough aisle so that you don't get hit in the arm every time the cart or anyone goes past you. why can I ride a twin otter and not need a seat belt extender and need one on American? On the return on the Airbus, the seats were a little more comfortable, but still need seatbelt extender."
Pros: "The planes were on time. On our way down to Cozumel. The pilot let me 4-year-old son see the cockpit. Which was AWESOME, they were great As well as the flight crew on the way down. The trip down was terrific, If AA had this level of service all the time I would fly with them all the time."
Cons: "The trip home was more of what i expected from AA. The check-in process was slow and i was overcharged for my bike, On the way down it was $25 the same price as previous AA flights, On other airlines, it also just counts as a piece of luggage. On the way home i was charged $150 oversized luggage, yet it was <50 lbs and within the size limits. The flight crew was not overall friendly. Very business like and not warm at all. If they were a restaurant i would not be returning. The locks on my bike case were both broken off. the case was not locked. Nor was this done by TSA as they would have left a note as they have previously done."
Pros: "Boarding was okay, flight was on time departing and arriving."
Cons: "No USB chargers in the seats for SEA-MIA segment of trip, but they had it for short hour flight from MIA-SJU? Long haul flights need the USB outlets!!"
Cons: "No movies or other entertainment that I could find"
Pros: "Food was good, crew was friendly, cordial which is not good at all on flights by United Airlines, Delta American Airlines and Air Canada. Flight from Miami-Sao Paulo was nice and no too long as when I fly through Toronto by Air Canada or through Chicago by USA airlines."
Pros: "Tiny airplane but single flght crew managed my and from what I could see fellow passengers needs commendably. Whilst I didn't like needing to hand in my carry on (without much warning so I didn't have time to pull out a magazine to read) on the plus side it was stored well as my suit carrier came out unscathed and you get your bags curb side as soon as the plane lands so you don't have to wait for the rest of the bags to unload."
Cons: "Because the airplane is so small there is not much room to move in the aisle (thankfully most people just sat down for the short flight), also you have to hand in your carry on baggage so that it is stored with the main bags."
Pros: "Nice Jet."
Cons: "During boarding, we were pulled out of the line. The attendant that diverted us did not explain why he diverted us. Our boarding passes were printed by our hotel as were many others that we saw. We went to a desk where another individual started asking question about our life and where we were going. Still, no one thought it was necessary to explain what part of the process or what exactly is going on. The man that diverted us, I'll bet, does not have reasons or any idea why he diverted us. I hate to think that he did it because we were Black Americans."
I will never fly Frontier again!
Weather delays of hours but staff were professional.
Very old plane and extremely uncomfortable.
Not a lot of leg space but the flight attendants were very nice and comforting to ensure we had a good flight to our destination
Communication is key !! Worst flight in history goes to frontier Getting to the airport on time to late delayed flights Air conditioner broke so we had to be delayed on the flight home as well I would never recommend
Cons: "I recommend for being punctual"
Cons: "Many people without masks."
Pros: "Execution of the boarding/ exiting process"
Cons: "A little more space"
Cons: "They need to stop charging for carryon bags. Also they need more comfortable seats."
Pros: "On time reliable."
Pros: "The crew was fantastic!"
Pros: "The crew was very helpful towards my elderly mother. The plane was clean."
Cons: "For the price I paid, I don't see how things could have been improved."
Pros: "Crew was nice! Liked the Temperature check and fast boarding."
Cons: "Seats are barebone, and doesn't recline. No seat-back trays."
Pros: "Crew too busy talking to each other."
Cons: "Focus on passengers needs. Enforce COVID rules! Flight too full. $3.00 for a small bottle of water. $60.00 for a carry on ONE WAY is hwy robbery!"
Cons: "The flight was almost full. Disgusting"
Pros: "Absolutely awful! I have never seen such a ridiculous airline before. More than 3 hours delays? Unbelievable! I am now at Miami airport stranded because of the long delays with Frontier flight from Atlanta. This is absolutely unacceptable!"
Cons: "Absolutely awful! I have never seen such a ridiculous airline before. More than 3 hours delays? Unbelievable! I am now at Miami airport stranded because of the long delays with Frontier flight from Atlanta. This is absolutely unacceptable!"
Pros: "Direct floght for the route with really no competition for the same airports and similar times. Checkin staff was courteous, embarking was swift, flight on time, safe, no issues."
Cons: "No quick bag drop off option, very slow to be processed. Tons of fees, they really add up and if you pay the extras it can easily be more expensive than the competitors. Super rude and careless flight attendant. Asked for bathroom permission for my 3-year-old once we were at full altitude and she denied. Sure enough 2 minutes later an adult just went for it. Then as the seatbelt sign was off she was blocking the aisle with the trolley. When I asked kindly to make room, she didn’t even acknowledge that she heard my request... she did, eventually, without even looking at me. Also very slow to get the stroller and a bit slow to get the baggage but these latter issues may be airport dependent."
Pros: "I boarded relatively quickly, but that was about the nicest thing about it."
Cons: "Well, the tray tables were about 5in x 8in and didn't slide forward, rendering it useless for basically anything. A laptop wouldn't fit anyway, but since it didn't slide out, the screen would have been tilted too far forward to properly see it as it was up against the seat and it was too unstable not to also hold my laptop while I sat there. With significantly less leg room than I've previously experienced on an economy class flight, laying down on the tray table to sleep was also impossible. When I first got on the plane, the air conditioner started and rather than feeling comfortable and less sweaty and gross, I just began to smell stale air that I was almost convinced was carbon monoxide as I was flying from Seattle and there had been smoke all around Washington due to forest fires. It was horribly uncomfortable and annoying even for sitting in coach. And I wasn't on an older or smaller airplane where I'd expect a little less concern for comfort, it seemed like it was very modern and it was a very large place. Leg room could have easily been increased by losing one to two rows of seats (seats that would most likely be empty anyway I might add). Airplanes tend not to be the most comfortable mode of travel anyway, but I would say this was the worst one."
Pros: "Literally nothing."
Cons: "I charged the airfare, thinking that would be all, like other airlines. Then I found out they charge for luggage. THEN I found out they charge me for a seat... on the flight I already paid for. Boarding was disorganized, seats were thin padding on plastic, quite uncomfortable. I also had to clean crumbs and trash off my seat before settling in. They charge you 2.99 each for water and airline peanuts; i didn't partake. they only gave me one boarding pass and when I boarded the plane, they said that is was the flight to Denver and then they were continuing on to Columbus. I assumed this meant I stayed on the plane when we landed in Denver, but no, they informed me the plane was then going to Cedar Rapids. I had no second boarding pass or gate number, so I asked the attendant. She took forever to help me, looking up my info for a minute and then talking to the other attendants and passing out papers to the boarding crew before acknowledging me again. Twenty minutes later, I had my gate, which I barely made to board in time for flight takeoff. Overall, the process was stressful, uncomfortable, and more expensive than if I had purchased a flight from Delta, Southwest, or Alaska. (All airlines I have flown and been happy with. Delta had a missed layover once and completely put me up for the night and was very helpful through the whole affair.) All said and done, I will not be flying Frontier again."
Pros: "The crew was great. The pilot lightened the mood with humor and the announcements were useful ( weather, time zone changes, ETA etc... ). The plane was clean and the price was low."
Cons: "You have to pay forty dollars for a carry on and for any beverage or snack on the flight. There was confusion about the seats as we boarded, which we did by zones, but still had aisle traffic which defeated the purpose. My connection was moved to another gate and they failed to announce it ( yes it was on the screen, but I don't travel that often and was lucky to notice it just as we were boarding... luckily just a few minutes walk away ). The plane offers no entertainment at all ( which is fine for me, but worth knowing... bring a dvd player or something for long trips )."
Pros: "The check in staff were rude, we felt like we were rushed. Frontier is a deceitful airline, they didn't tell us that the bags were SO expensive, usually an airline gives you some bag for free, nope! Carry on and checked luggage cost a ton of money. Not to mention you have to pay for seats, which is expensive! If you're travelling with someone and you don't pay for seats and you wait until the end to be assigned then you won't end up sitting beside the person you're travelling with and I must tell you the response I got from them was that they're busy and they have no time to deal with this. Then there is the flight crew, through the flight all I could hear is the flight crew talking about how they are on a waiting list and something about becoming a full attendant and every other word was accompanied by a bad word. I would file for a refund if I thought that would get me anywhere. Sorry Kayak I like you but from now on I'll be going direct to American Airlines. By the way! The CEO of Frontier is the former CEO of spirit...That alone should tell you stay AWAY."
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: "Airplane is new but chairs are made of plastic and very thin, they don't recline and you have very small space -- very uncomfortable. I flew from Miami to Vegas (5 hours) The plane flew at low altitude the entire way and went right through all storms just to save fuel/money. People were afraid for their lives because the plane was shaking so bad. I travel 1-2 weeks out of each month by plane for work and I am not afraid, I knew it was fine, but others had no idea and were very afraid. I know it is a cheap airline, but the real problem I had with them was they are not honest. Their website says that if you chose your seat online you have to pay, but if you do at check in it is free and they will try to keep your party together as long as there's seats available. Upon arriving at the counter they wanted to charge me to keep me and my fiancée together, otherwise she was at the front of the plane and I was all the way at the back. The plane had extra seats and we got there early to get assigned seats together but even the manager would not help me even after showing their website. He said the computer will make them charge me and there was no way around it. There's always a way around it. At the end of the day, paying for seats, all bags you check in or carry on, foods/drinks in the plane, I paid just as much as flying with a good airline such as Delta. I will never fly with them again, that is for sure."
Cons: "I've traveled consistently between 4-6 times a year for the last 15 years and this was my first trip with Frontier. It was by far the worst travel experience of my life. One of the passengers was so drunk that she threw up all over the gate agent's podium, and this passenger was still allowed on the plane. When we boarded, we had to circumvent the vomit because it hadn't been cleaned up yet. There were multiple passengers on board who brought their own alcohol, were noticeably drunk and extremely loud. I understand that this is not your crew's fault, but there was a complete lack of understanding as to how to handle the situation. The pilot scorned passengers as a whole, and noted that if people didn't calm down, he would force a landing in North Carolina. The responsible passengers such as myself not only had to tolerate the debauchery, but also felt like we would be potentially be punished for other people's bad behavior. The flight crew seemed to have no idea how to handle this situation. I don't understand why is passenger are blatantly breaking federal regulations, the crew would not do anything about it. When I attempted to check in online, literally ever seat (including middle seats, back row) had an up-charge which is simply ridiculous. the seats were small and very uncomfortable. I will never fly Frontier again. I'd pay double for a flight with another company just to avoid them."
Pros: "Can say I liked anything really"
Cons: "Staff was horrible! Customer service did anything but customer service. They had a "too bad so sad" attitude towards customer. Arrived 12:35am for a 1:19am flight and was denied check in because supposedly counter closes at 12:30am. So I was denied entry for 5 minutes? I had to pay a taxi, extra night at hotel then a fee for rescheduling flight. Ridiculous, NECER flying Frontier again! Even if tickets were free! I booked/found flight on kayak app. I would suggest kayak remove them, experience was so bad that negatively effects kayaks reputation too. Also, every other airline provides complementary beverages and snacks, NOT Frontier. Also free bag check? Nope frontier charges everything! Even a carry-on which is free everywhere else. Absurd, truly worst flying experience EVER!"
Pros: "Lights turned off at night, not a lot of announcements to disturb sleeping passengers. Plane was clean. Crew seemed fine enough."
Cons: "To begin with, a three-hour delay on what was already just a four-hour flight, and no steps made to even offer snacks or discounts or other amenities to apologize for the gross delay. Very uncomfortable seats; even dead tired, I could not get much sleep. I usually use the food tray as a place to rest my head, but it was far too small to use for that. Upon landing, another 45 minutes of delay as we waited for our gate to become free, and again, no measures taken to apologize or make us as customers feel like they wanted us to feel even a little bit better about the situation. I get that it's a cheap flight option, but even so, the company needs to take more responsibility for its internal problems."
Cons: "Got to the airport 2 hours early to check in. The kiosk told me to see an attebdant. No attendants were at the Frontier desk. The nearest employees (jetblue) told me yesterday that the Frontier employees never showed up and that people missed their flights. My flight along with several other people who were waiting as well, seemed to have either been cancelled without alerting us. My confirmation number didn't register on the kiosk a half hour after I originally tried it. No employees ever arrived to the desk. Having to go to United to buy another ticket. I would expect either a full refund or a travel voucher in replacement. I paid 300 dollars and had to arrive 6 hours later than originally planned. As I live three hours from the Denver airport, this will get me home at 1 am. I have to be at work tomorrow at 7am. I will never fly frontier again."
Cons: "Tried to cancel this flight using the flight insurance I was up sold during checkout. Turns out that the flight insurance was only available for international flights? When I ask the agent why it was the recommended during purchase, she said I should have read the full terms and conditions during checkout. To me, this was a true scam. She told me that I could appeal the conditions of the travel insurance, but I would have to present a death certificate of the friend's baby that had just passed - the reason the baby shower was cancelled, and the reason this trip was cancelled. It was appalling. I tried calling Frontier directly, but their reservation desk was closed due to their system being down. HOURS I tried to call, and could not get a rep. I ended up not able to cancel the flight or even speak w a Frontier rep before my flight departed. In all, I was given 6 different numbers or lines to call to sort through this situation. All I did was waste hours of my time. This was a terrible situation where I feel like I was the victim of a scam."
Cons: "It is very clear that Frontier is a budget airline that prioritizes money over people. Right down to the unnecessary announcement that you may not drink your own 'minis' but are required to purchase their liquor (at ridiculously inflated prices). The pretty girls who approached us and offered perks...for a price as we queued for more than an hour simply to check in, made me feel even more like faceless animal prey with dollars in my pockets. I will not fly Frontier again, no matter how 'cheap' their tickets."
Pros: "The flight crew, and the view out the plane. I did enjoy the minimalistic seat design, which probably allows for more people per plane."
Cons: "The hidden fees, frontier wanting you to pay to pick your seat location after already purchasing the ticket. That is really lame. No complementary beverage (not even water) or snack on 3 hour flight... also lame. Frontier claims to be affordable airfare but has you pay for way more than just the plane ticket after the fact. I opted to not pay to pick seat location and was able to still sit next to my friend but I bet there are a good amount of people who have a family and feel pressured to spend way more money to pick seats so they are not separated. Just makes frontier seem like a money hungry company that cares more about money than it's customers. The flight home (Denver to Seattle) was an hour and a half late, which sucks, but whatever life happens. I didn't really like the airbus plane that made weird plane noises, why do you not use Boeing planes?"
Pros: "Newer jet, clean, smooth flight"
Cons: "Two of the three flight attendants were a little obnoxious. Before we took off, the female African American attendant openly said that people weren't listening to her about stowing carry on bags and said "this is like dealing with a bunch of 2-yr olds" uncalled for in my opinion. The only male attendant was insincere on his announcements and it's the first time I've ever flown (hundreds before) where on two occasions he asked for people to clean up after themselves. Also the lines at the sole checkin desk in Seattle was too long. Should have had more than one person checking people in. I'd not recommend this airline if I was asked today what my opinion was."
Pros: "Flight times"
Cons: "Terribly uncomfortable seating -- the worst I've ever experienced; horrible baggage charges for carry-on and checked, both -- and lack of straight-forward discussion of fees which are, at the very least, semi-hidden; the only time since People's Express that I've not been offered a soft drink or juice w/out a charge. Terrible baggage handling and lack of assistance and information regarding the extreme lateness of checked bags being produced for the entire flight at baggage claim. Will not fly Frontier again unless assured of corrections to all of these problems."
Pros: "The crew was kind and professional."
Cons: "I have never been charged $40 for a carry on. I suppose I missed some fine print about that, however it seems absolutely rediculous. The airplane seats feel more like bus seats. They do not recline and are missing a head rest or anything resembling a cushion. The airlines seems to gouge you for anything they possibly can. Even their bitter airplane coffee costs $2. I am actually surprised I wasn't charged for bringing on a jacket. I almost had to switch flights and after speaking on the phone with one of their representatives found out that if they do that over the phone there is a $50 service charge (for speaking to someone on the phone) on top of the $100 change fee and decided against it. I will absolutely never fly Frontier again. There are many other low cost options that include basic amenities like normal seats and free carry on luggage. Seriously, don't fly Frontier."
Pros: "People were professional and everything ran smoothly."
Cons: "I'm sure there's some tiny print somewhere explaining carry-ons are $45 but it should be more obvious when booking - even if you do it through a third party. It soured the rest of what was otherwise perfectly good service. Other passengerss reacted the same way. I was charged and then noticed the family next to me was charged only $40 for checked bags. The looks on their faces for having to pay for both types of bags was priceless. I mentioned the cheaper check-bag fee at the counter and she said, "Oh, but you said it was carry-on". It just felt scammy. Easy-Jet has been a discount airline for ages and they give you all the options up front so you know what you're getting into. They practically charge you for toilet paper but there are no surprises. Add the extra aggravation of LaGuardia's third world style and you end up with a frustrating day for avoidable reasons."
Cons: "First leg of our trip was delayed so we could not make our connection. We were told they could fly us to Denver and catch other flight home 3 days later or completely rebook to the next closest city. (They do not partner with anyone so you are stuck with their flights) Which we then needed to book a hotel, cab fares to the megabus station, then cab fares back to our original destination. Once arriving, and even though we checked in hours before our flight, our baggage was missing along with about 10 other passengers. Frontier had no one at their baggage service when we arrived. So I had the drive 2 hours back the next day. Called the help line. The person was rude and began getting loud with me, even though they are the ones that lost our bags. 90% of all the customer service people we encountered were extremely rude and would not help. Nor were they very accommodating for all their mess ups. For all our troubles, the rude "customer service" people, and out additional hundreds of dollars; Frontier sent us a coupon for a whooping $50 to use on their airline. No thanks, will never fly this airline again."
Pros: "The only thing to praise was the smooth take-off and landing."
Cons: "This airline is deceptive from the get go. Their seemingly "low fares" are quickly offset by their outrageous fees for baggage and carry-ons and everything else. $35 to $40 for a carry-on, or checked baggage, and even if you pay the money to bring a carry-on, there is an additional $40 fee to store it in the overhead bin! Another catch is if you do not pay for all these fees before arriving at the airport, Frontier may charge you $60 at the airport. None of these charges are evident when initially booking the flight online but only when checking in. I called the airline to voice my disbelief over these fees and was treated very coldly and was told that Frontier is an "a la carte" airline. On the ground, my flight was almost an hour late though the reader board continually boasted of the flight being "on time." (My wife and I barely made our connecting flight in Denver). Ground crew in Seattle were not personable in the least. Many folks around us were equally put off by all the up-charges they were being told about. On board you will discover the seats are hard plastic with little cushioning and do not even recline. Forget about wi-fi or charging your phone or laptop. Non-alcoholic drinks $2. I jokingly asked if I put my coat in the overhead, would be charged $40? Crew member did not appreciate the humor. Everyone else did. Perhaps if you are a college student traveling with a small backpack (i.e, a "personal item") and don't care about comfort to save a buck, you might be happy with Frontier, However, for the rest of us, this kind outfit is a joke. I will never use recommend much less us this airline again. Do yourself a favor and book your next flight on a reputable airline."
Pros: "Crew was nice, but very uptight about wearing a seatbelt, not standing in line to use the bathroom, not changing seats, etc."
Cons: "I booked tickets with this airline for the first time because prices were significantly cheaper than with other airlines. However, I didn't realize I would have to pay $45 for carry on luggage, pay extra if I did want a seat in the middle, and even pay for soft drank! After factoring in all those things, it would have been a lot cheaper to use a different airline. Plus, it was by far the most uncomfortable airplane I have ever been on. No leg room, small seats that do not recline and have no cushion. Terrible experience!"
Pros: "The stewardists were nice."
Cons: "It is insane how terrible Frontier has become. They were the first airline, and used to be the only airline I would fly. They now are gimmicky, money pinching, and obviously have no care for their customers. I will never fly Frontier again, not just because of these concerns, but also because these concerns lead me to worry about who they hire to fly the plane. I would imagine if they care so little as to not have a person there to check bags in, that they probably would also save a couple bucks to pay an inexperinced flight captain, who could make a deadly mistake. I arrived at SeaTac airport early with my girlfriend so that we could eat before her flight together at a real restaurant that is after security. Nobody was there to check me in. Luckily all of my liquids were under the limit. So decided to check my bag at the door, the first go it turns out frontier is the only airline you can't use your phone to scan your ticket at security. BOGUS! I kissed my girlfriend goodbye and went to print out a ticket. I then went througb security AGAIN and was taken aside for additional screening for things in my check bag that i SHOULD NOT have had on me would Frontier had the decency to pay someone $10/hour to be at the front. My baby powder got yellow flagged at this additional screening and i had to be patted down, empty out all my bags and sit as I has humuliated by the TSA as they thoroughly looked through and checked all of my footwear and electronics for explosives. This took an additional half hour. I then missed lunch with my girlfriend completely, as she had to get on her flight. The lady checking me in was nice enough and took care of the checked bag issue as it was obvious from her reaction that this happens all the time. Frontier then while on the flight does a 3 minute gimmiky talk about buying their credit card, everyone made fun of it. Just insane, did a bunch of used car salesmen buy Frontier? It sure seems like it. I will never fly Frontier and will urge all the people I know to do the same."
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: "There is a lot to complain about with this airline. I cannot comment on the comfort, food not entertainment because I missed my flight. Granted the flight missing was not the fault of the airline however I would have imagined that the staff would have told me in no way would I make my flight with the security lines the way they were. Once we made it through we ran the entire length of the airport to try and make the flight in hopes that they might delay the plane. That's is not the whole complaint because it happens. However; my bags flew with the flight I missed. The ticket agent assured us the bags would get to the destination and I could pick them once I arrived on the later flight (through a different airline). When I arrived NO employees where to be found. The "helpline" not helpful not even to tell me if the bags were there and lock and I could get them in the morning. Instead I was talk to condescending and rude, thanks to Kim in Colorado. I stayed the night over since my home is 3 hours from the airport. Next morning at 8:30 I call to speak to someone, helpline again unhelpful. Could not tell me when someone would be there or anything about my bags. I show up the airport. No staff. I waited for an hour and half for a ticket agent. Once I posted on their social media page that I was unhappy that person told me when they would be there and their hours. NOT THE HELPLINE but I already stood around picked up my bags and was out of there. I will never fly this airline. They nickel and dime you and have terrible customer service."
Cons: "They wanted,discharge me $40 dollars for a carry-on, let's just start there. So in addition to whatever I would have paid to check a bad now carry on items are 40 bucks? Get real. Next there's the issue of the flight itself which was horrible. The seats were no better than plastic folding seats you would buy at target and about as comfortable. Frontier's idea of first class is what every other airline would call coach. There is so little leg room or room in front of you that I couldn't lay my head down on the tiny little excuse for a folding tray. Additionally none of the chairs leaned back. Not that they could as you would be in the lap of the person behind you.so I had to sleep on a red eye for 4 hours sitting straight up on hard plastic, crammed into a row like sardines. I will never fly frontier again."
Cons: "Ticket looked cheaper than other airlines, but I paid just as much once you add on the price of your carry on ($30 for one bag - one way), your seat selection (from $9 - $30 just to have an assignment), and even your soda ($2). I spent an additional $156 above the ticket price for my wife and I to attend a funeral. That came out to $45 "savings" than flying on a major airlines would have cost. I will gladly pay the additional $45 next time and have a better experience on an airline that it still trying."
Pros: "On board crew was very nice and were very entertaining."
Cons: "I've flown frontier before and I have never had a problem. Tried to check in for our flight 30min before it took off as we were running late. The rep who was working the desk (young female, approx. 20yrs old) gave us the worst guest service I have ever received. I did not understand why we could not check in, nor attempt to board our flight, although I understood it is our fault for running late. We did not need to check any bags as we were carrying them on. The woman behind the desk only kept saying you missed your flight and was very disrespectful when our friend tried to talk to her saying "I don't know why your even trying to talk to me, I told you I am done with you." I work in the guest service industry and have never been treated or talked to with such disrespect. I would have understood if she was apologetic and explained to us WHY we could not board or make our flight, compared to being rude and rolling her eyes constantly. I will not be flying frontier again I can avoid it."
Cons: "The flight attendant was laughing during the safety speech, which was a little discomforting if you like to feel as if you may make it alive. If you like to not move your legs around or not be able to recline slightly while in an air plane, then this is your airline. The flights are cheap but they forgot to tell you they charge for one carry on! You might as well fly with a legitimate company and not end up paying the same price if not more because of all the "fine print". The saying goes "buy cheap, get cheap" but this airline is a little out of control."
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."
Pros: "The crew was courteous and professional."
Cons: "After adding up all of the hidden fees with the "low cost" of the flight, it all came out to MORE than I would have paid if I had booked a flight with another carrier!. As ad DEPENDENT of an active duty military member, I NEVER have to pay for checked luggage, much less a carry on! Once I got over having to pay and additional $150 for luggage, I board the plane to find extremely uncomfortable seats with half of a tray table, all I could do was laugh. The joke was totally on me!!!! For a flight that was over 3 hours long, it was NOT WORTH ANY OF IT!!! I didn't do the research that I should have, and that is totally on me. Fool me once, but NEVER AGAIN."
Pros: "Only thing i liked is That we didnt crash"
Cons: "-$40 fee for personal bag that was slightly over regulation -one hour delay PLUS 2 hours stuck on runway in the airplane without access to water nor could we stand up out of our chairs for bathroom -finally when they were serving food and beverage only paying passengers had first access to food and water even if the crew had to walk all the way to the back and then back to the front to serve and charge them, it took about 45 minutes until they started serving water (of which the second cup of water they needed to charge for supposedly although we got "lucky" and they gave us a free second little glass of water)"
Cons: "I get their and theirs no one to check me in. I was an hour early and a half early and yet,I didn't see anyone at the front desk. I kept asking the flight group next door if they Had a clue weather or not they were their, and all I got for an hour str8 is " they'll be back shortly ". They never came. I missed my flight. And important meetings in Texas. Now I'm Re-schedule for Friday. When I'm Suppose to Be their Before Thursday. And besides all the "BS" they Charge You Extra and Hella Expensive on the Baggage and carry on. It's like ur Buying a House with all the Hidden Fees they Don't Mention. ***Worst Experience Yet"
Pros: "Not much to like the plan was clean."
Cons: "The flight was two hours delayed. And the pilot or staff did not have the common courtesy to let us know what was happening. Pilot explained why they were delayed in landing at LGA. And it would be a two hour flight. However we waited another hour on the runway with NO updates!!! Just sitting on a plane, on a flight that was already late, was very frustrating. Frontier staff should really work on better communication. They also had an elderly woman pay $60 for her carry on. They could have waived the fee, she was elderly and she stated she wasn't aware that she had to pay for her carry on. It would have been a nice gesture when the flight was delayed."
Cons: "Arrived late. Baggage was overcharged. They charged me for carry on bag besides baggage claimed. Upon late arrival waited an hour till I got my baggage Arrived late. Baggage was overcharged. They charged me for carry on bag besides baggage claimed. Upon late arrival waited an hour till I got my baggage Arrived late. Baggage was overcharged. They charged me for carry on bag besides baggage claimed. Upon late arrival waited an hour till I got my baggage Arrived late. Baggage was overcharged. They charged me for carry on bag besides baggage claimed. Upon late arrival waited an hour till I got my baggage"
No entertainment. Seats uncomfortable.
Pros: "The boarding was relatively quick and it was timely"
Cons: "The additional costs at Spirit are ridiculous. The flight price totally fools you on the front end given the additional costs that come later. That said, the comfort is poor. Seats don’t recline and are poorly cushioned. I will not be choosing Spirit again for my future travel needs."
Cons: "This was a great value and we enjoyed the flight"
Cons: "Late leaving, really cramped seats"
Cons: "too expensive, i should have flown Alaska, thought i'd give you a try flights were late, left late and arrived late round trip charge for water? this is ridiculous - a lady was choking behind us and the attendant would not give her water unless she paid, very inconsiderate"
Pros: "The plane took off The plane landed"
Cons: "The TSA agents were nicer and more helpful then Spirit reps. At the gate all they wanted was more money more money more money Not for themselves but for the airline. The wheels on my suitcase stuck out 1/2 inch so I was charged an extra $50 I asked if I take the wheels off would that help The agent said " I could charge you $60 how about that?" I WILL NEVER FLY Spirit again! And I recommend you find a different airline. I don't mind paying for what I get but when the company hides the charges until you get there. They should be in jail for bait and switch."
Pros: "Flight started and reached on time."
Cons: "Spirit agent didn't bother checking bag dimensions and forced to pay for the bag."
Pros: "Pilot was fantastic. Kept us informed as we had to wait a little getting to an open gate, but the landing was the smoothest I ever experienced."
Cons: "Your plans suck! The seat I used had a bar across the bottom that had no cushion. It should be taken out. And the fact that the seats don't recline is very bad for back and necks. It's a shame, riding in the is like riding in animal cargo."
Pros: "Nothing bad service I’m not going to use spirit ever again"
Cons: "Everything was bad"
Cons: "Sport seems cheaper in price but they really are not. Thank charge for carry on bags and claimed bags double then other airlines do. For the overall price I’ll go to another airline where it’s the same amount of money overall and way better comfort"
Pros: "Wide aisles"
Cons: "Pay for carry on, pay for soda beverage, Probably pay to use bathroom"
Cons: "One bathroom broken. Then pilot kept having to use bathroom and crew had to block it off. Was annoying and kept waking us up on the red eye. Flight was rough and we had so many turns upon landing. It started to get a little concerning"
Pros: "In flight staff was nice and there was a cute service dog sitting across from us haha"
Cons: "Smallest seats I have ever had on a plane. Was cramped even though My boyfriend and I are both pretty small. The first airline I've flown that doesn't even offer tea or juice without a charge. We missed our first flight coming in, they didn't allow us to receive credit or a refund for the checked baggage fee we paid even though we didn't end up flying with them for that flight and said that it would cost us $100 to reschedule our flight to the next day (we ended up purchasing a same day flight with Alaska instead) Ground level staff was rude and unhelpful despite us being very polite and understanding of their policies. Spirit will charge you for EVERYTHING. By the time you've completed your flight, its possible to have paid double of the initial ticket charge. First time I have ever had such a poor airline experience."
Pros: "Cost effective if you're just trying to get your body somewhere."
Cons: "They nickel and dime you for eeeeverything. I was under the impression they're legally required to at least give you water but even that is like 4$ If you add anything to your flight, the cost immediately ceases to be competitive with Delta or the other less budget airlines. You even have to pay to select your seat at check in. Also, booking was a total catastrophe. Their online system is super faulty, I had to wait for an hour to get someone on the phone to fix it.... all while listening to a robot repeatedly tell me that it would be faster online -.-"
Pros: "Easy and quick boarding"
Cons: "You get what you pay for and the flight was super cheap. However, the nickle and dime gouging for bags was a turnoff. The main reason I'll never fly again though, was pure discomfort. The seats resemble metal folding chairs with fabric stretched over them and they don't recline - at all. For a cross country trip and a red-eye return these are deal breakers. Two days later and my back still aches. This airline does a good job at what it does, however, that's not very much. If you have more than two pennies to rub together, you'd be smart to sterr clear of it, as I will be doing from now on. Lesson learned and chalking this one up to experience."
Pros: "That we got to where we were going"
Cons: "The airline charges $10 per person to check in and talk to an agent. So we went to the self kiosk, where we ended up paying $57 for a carry on and $36 to get seats next to each other. When we told the agent on our way out how ridiculous those charges were, she said "you don't have to pay for that back pack. And if you booked the flight together you would be seated together and shouldn't be charged." We told her we would have known that if she would have helped us, and she shrugged her shoulders. No refund. No apology. This stupid airline charges for everything - even water. Horrible experience. You save money with a cheaper flight and spend more with the ridiculous cheapskate business model."
Pros: "Boarding was efficient."
Cons: "Bare bones is one thing but it was a flat out uncomfortable trip. Felt gouged by pricing policy despite being aware they are a budget carrier."
Pros: "This time they flew to the right airport."
Cons: "Flight delay, High baggage fee for a carry on, noisy food trays, seats uncomfortable, Crew was mixed. One attendant really snippy. Yes we know you're late by 2 plus hours...we are too and it's your aircraft. Called customer support and didn't resolve anything until the 3rd call. Still haven't seen my mileage club miles posted. Called customer support and was told I already flew that reservation. Well yes and where are the miles? Not one for the timid. Low fare until you add anything. Pay for baggage online prior to getting to the airport. It was 38 dollars on-line and 54 at the airport. That's for a carryon bag."
Cons: "Please do not use FlightNetwork as a third party booking service anymore. When I first booked my ticket through them, after finding the deal on kayak, they sent an email saying that the flight booking was pending. I had to call them to confirm they had actually booked the flight. Then they mispelled my email so I didn't receive a confirmation email from spirit until I called the airline directly. And then I found out that not only had FlightNetwork collected $20 for their poor services they had charged me for my flight in addition to spirit charging me for my flight. I was doubly charged for the same flight and was only alerted to it because I was skeptical of FlightNetwork's business practices and decided to double check my bank account. I am now in the process of getting a refund from FlightNetwork. I urge you to discontinue business with them as this experience seems to be characteristic of their company. My partner's flight was booked incorrectly and FlightNetwork's track record on Yelp is incorrigible."
Cons: "Cost adder for bags, seat, boarding, snacks. Add these to the fare and Spirit would NOT have been my choice. Seats do not recline - very uncomfortable. Seats too close together. Rude Spirit employees at baggage check-in and on the plane - it was clear their job was to find some way to charge more money. A bag that weighed 39 LBS in Houston and had the same clothes weighed 43 LBS in Seattle and resulted in a weight overcharge fee as they only allow 40LBS Max for checked luggage when everyone else allows more. No updates during flight of ETA. No entertainment options."
Pros: "Don't let the low price fool you! You will end up paying the same price for Spirit flight, very close to a similar ticket from other airlines. The only difference is that Spirit will charge you little by little (for carry on, boarding pass, check-in, etc.), plus offering you a very uncomfortable seat (unadjustable)."
Pros: "It was a terrible experience start to finish and I will never fly with Spirit again. It started off with inefficient and confusing lines and then it was delayed over 3 hours with no posted updates at the gate of explanations. There were no apologies or offers to amend the situation. The seats do not recline and the space is very cramped and I don't think it is actually legal to not offer free drinking water when passengers are stuck on board for over 6 hours which was the case for this flight. Only because after boarding everyone they realized the door wouldn't close properly and had maintenance work on it for over an hour. on my return trip to Seattle the check in process at BWI was even worse and the flight attendants were late to the gate so boarding was delayed. They also told me there were no available seats to transfer too, but once on board I discovered there were over 80 seats available on the flight. So she completely lied to me for no explainable reason. Over all I was appalled on both trips and quite frankly, the tickets are not that much less than any other airline going from BWI to SEA and back - the benefit of reasonable comfort and human decency far out weighs the possible 30 bucks I saved and then spent on a carry on bag. Spirit should not be allowed to operate, it is a shady and mean organization and I have made sure to broadcast my terrible experience to everyone I know. As a travel site you should really consider you're role in promoting such a dismal travel experience/airline. I am loyal to kayak and generally trust the validity of the site, but i am disappointed that I was encouraged to purchase such a terrible trip through your site and may consider different options in the future."
Cons: "No part of this flight was an enjoyable experience."
Pros: "The crew during the flight was pleasant."
Cons: "They say why're the cheapest airline around, and that's true....in the worst ways. The flight itself isn't expensive, but they charge $30 per bag you carry on and more for checked bags. They don't offer free water on long flights, and they make you pay for any and all beverages. Nothing is included in your flight. Their new planes, while 'green' and fuel efficient are unbearably uncomfortable to fly in. The seats are hard molded plastic with about an inch of padding and aren't adjustable T all. Flying more than four hours was pure hell, seated upright. Also, be sure to pay for your bag at the ticket counter. They charge you twice as much at the gate if you don't remember. And it's printed on your boarding pass, so don't think they're letting you off easy. It's a trap to get you to pay more."
Pros: "The planes are new"
Cons: "Cramped seats that don't recline. Not even free drinks. Deceptive prices with $9 fare club prices that are actually $60 and different luggage prices."
Cons: "Didn't like the extreme added on expenses. $57 for a checked bag to Seattle. No seat reservation fee going to Seattle. On the return $47 for a checked bag. Had to reserve a seat for the return. The fee started at $18 the website went down and upon getting back online the seat reservation fee increased from $18 to $20 in a matter of 1-2 minutes"
Cons: "It was delayed so much that I had to re-book so that I wouldn't be stranded on my connection waiting on standby. Costs for rebooking were over $100, which I had to pay out of pocket if I wanted to guarantee that I would get to my destination. Last time I flew with Spirit, their delays made me miss my connection and was stranded overnight. So I guess that Spirit's poor planning and delays mean that I will either have to pay double or be stranded, but at least I know that with Spirit I can always count on being late."
Pros: "Leg space in plane."
Cons: "Unknown fees for everything."
Cons: "Upon checking in, the guy working the counter said he didn't know how to put in my TSA precheck number and that was going to be it. I had to ask him to please ask his colleague, who showed him in 3 seconds. Not exactly great customer service. Then for boarding, the woman called the group numbers out of order, causing confusion. The seats were so incredibly uncomfortable, I could not sleep at all! It was an overnight flight to boot. Ugh. Never again will I fly this airline. I felt lucky to make it to the east coast. There was no confidence instilled by the employees."
Cons: "Return Flight on 5/31 / #770 Detroit to Seattle: upon arriving at the Detroit airport learned we had to pay $59 per carry on bag. DID NOT have to do that for first flight from Seattle. Nickel & dimed the whole flight . Paid more than we would have with other preferred airline which we normally travel Impersonal service Broken seat in front of me so that tray did not operate & leg room - what there was of it - very compromised Staff on board are sloppy when giving instructions, especially on the intercom. Need speaking training. Talk way to fast, slur their words. Will NEVER fly Spirit again. You get what you pay for."
Pros: "The plane was nice looking, that's about it."
Cons: "My arrival flight was dirty, I believe I contracted some kind of rash from the nasty seat, the crew almost tried to find a way to charge me for napkins while I was attempting to clean the seat, I had to pay $180 for one carry on each for my fiance and I RT, the return flight was delayed, back on time, then delayed 3x which caused us to miss an opportunity for a late check out from our hotel and we spent 4 unnecessary hours at the airport. I will never recommend Spirit or travel with them again."
Cons: "Never EVER have I flown with an airline that charges you for carry-on luggage. If I would have known this and all the other extra hidden fees, including (extra chargers for checking passengers in..etc) I most definitely would have picked a different airline. To make matters even worse, they never once told me while checking in at their airline counter that they charge for carry on luggage. So.. when I arrived to my boarding gate, they announced that all carry on luggage was an additional fee of $100.00, unless already checked in at the counter for their base rate of $60.00 FOR A CARRY ON.... In order to board my flight, I had to pay $100.00 for one tiny little suitcase. I was beyond aggravated. It felt like this airlines entire intentions were to scam every passenger that boarded. At one point on the flights, as the flight attendants were going through the emergency procedures, a passengers behind me said "You will only give us our oxygen masks, for an additional charge" I will NEVER fly with Spirit Airline again. Every employee that I came across during my travels were incredibly rude, and very unhelpful. Spirit does have cheaper flights, but after all the up-charges you end up paying way more than you will if you just book with another airline."
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: "Nickel and dime you to death could have takenen Alaska for the same price I payed"
Pros: "Cost online appeared to be very good"
Cons: "Not clearly presented were "purchase" options, like having a carry-on which cost $55 if purchased at the gate, $45 if purchased right online, Big problem: I was not emailed an online prompt to check-in, so I had to check in "manually" at the airport terminal. I was told the carry-on baggage fee right at the gate would be $100! But the agent gave me a discount and I was "only" charged $45. I was not able to reach anyone by phone or by online chat re checking in or paying extra charges for a personal carry-on. I felt a bit set up to pay extra because Spirit was not informing me of the need to check in online and/or the need to pay extra for a checked bag."
Pros: "40$ CARRY ON FEE No complentary WATER HORRRIBLE SERVICE FEES EVERYWHERE I MADE A CORPORATE REQUEST 12 days ago and they still haven't gotten back to me and had to end up buying a whole new flight. Thier corporate website Has a one star rating and is riddled with complaints and customers trying To band together to sue spirit. BOYCOTT SPIRIT AIRLINES"
Pros: "They upgraded me. The upgraded seat was very spacious. The staff was nice. Very punctual. Easy/fast to board and deplane because people don't have tons of bags. Overall, super easy and no frills, which I liked."
Cons: "No TSA pre-check at Seattle? People need this... Luckily, the nice guy at the check-in counter helped to get me through, but otherwise I would have missed my flight. No option to purchase wifi?"
Cons: "Spirit Airlines is laughably inconvenient, and derisively unconventional. Stewards are made to be salespeople, and the simplest amenities (such as a seat-back tray or glass of water) are pointedly unavailable. I spent a hellish 10 hours flying Spirit Airlines; having done so, I would never recommend a friend (nor, even, an enemy) go through the same discomfort, ridicule, and expense. The captain was flippant regarding the discomfort of the flight. Stewardesses spoke loudly to one another in the back of the plane, non-stop, for two hours. Seats are ridiculously close to one another, do not recline, and offer trays without proper space to be useful. Spirit makes a point of reminding its customers, every step of the way, how limited their flight experience will be. When I purchased flight tickets through Kayak, I did not realize that Spirit would strip me, the paying customer, of every possible amenity, all for the farce of a"bargain" flight. Nowhere was I informed of needing to pay 55$ per carry-on bag at the airport, nor of the further embarrassment of having to pay $15 to simply occupy a seat on the plane. Have I not purchased a ticket? Have I not given my money? Why should I be denied the right to sit on the actual plane? At least three other customers in line in front of me were dissatisfied with their check-in experience. None were comforted by Spirit staff, whose job, clearly, is merely to demand money and offer further ways in which an already paying customer can be divested of the contents of their wallet. I pity all who ride Spirit, work for Spirit, or consider becoming business partners with this company. Clearly, being "the youngest fleet of any major U.S. airline," has its drawbacks."
Pros: "Crew were friendly, although a bit too relaxed some sitting scrolling through facebook on phones once the plane had landed. Planes were clean. Even though we had to circle for ages as windy at LAX, Captain kept us well informed."
Cons: "Website was down so there was no way to check in online. System was down at SEA-TAC so boarding cards could not be printed resulting in having to wait for ages then was given a handwritten boarding pass.other customers with printed passes were being turned away at TSA line. Baggage prices are ridiculous, you have to pay for carry on AND checked luggage. I had neither but even so my flight wasn't THAT cheap so glad I didn't have to pay the extortionate fees on top of that too. I flown budget many times in Europe but Spirit is very basic. I wish my fare had reflected this otherwise I wouldn't have moaned!"
Cons: "No customer service, seat are not comfortable"
Pros: "My college kid carried an empty suitcase on the plane in order to get some things from home. He was charged $55 for an empty carry-on. It was also $10 for a boarding pass. They don't have a way to create a pdf and show and scan it. I won't book this airline again. I could have booked Delta and would have ended up saving if I had understood the charges."
Cons: "They lost our checked-in bag. The customer service call line was all automated so we couldn't talk to someone in person to see if we could track our bag."
Pros: "Flight into LAX was experienced and the pilot landed well."
Cons: "You get excited cause the ticket is cheap, then you have to pay for everything. The motto this trip was, "do I have to pay extra for that?" If you are going with a backpack and that's it, this might be the ticket for you. But if you were like me, and needed to take more than a toothbrush for three days, you have you pay for luggage, then pay for water, and boarding passes, and CARRY ON BAGS. The list goes on and on. Spirit doesn't care about you, just your money. I will shell out the extra bucks to get at least a water and a seat that reclines. I will be warning everyone I know about how terrible Spirit was, and I personally will never fly this airline again."
Pros: "Courteous flight attendants who seemed to be happy with their job."
Cons: "Yes, the tickets are cheaper, but the one personal item really is just your purse/handbag/backpack. Carry-ons cost $55. If you check the carry-on it's only $50. We misread this policy and felt a bit 'bamboozled' by it. Also, don't be late for check-in. If you're not checked in 45 minutes before domestic flights, you're late."
Cons: "Spirit airlines is VERY misleading. Yes it was the cheapest flight as stated but then there were the hidden costs. baggage for one luggage or carry on? Ridiculous when other airlines don't charge for the first one. A little overweight? A huge hefty fine. Pay for your seat?! There were no free seats at all!!! No complimentary snack or drink??? Charge for water!!! Ridiculous! The seats were like being packed in a sardine can and no recline which I had a terrible headache when the we finally landed! By the time I had to pay for the "extras" I could have flown first class on another airline! Never again will I will flight with Spirit and will highly recommend anyone else not to also!!!"
Cons: "Tried to change carry on bag to a checked bag....found NO WAY to accomplish that. When doing the initial booking site skip the ability to do bags at the time of booking"
Cons: "Having a checked in bag is cheaper than carry-on. If you dont buy a checked in bag or carry-on at the time of booking its more expensive to pay for it later which is bizzare. I paid $85 for one checked in luggage roundrip when most airlines charge $50 for roundrip. Cannot select seats and seats dont recline."
Pros: "Flight was scheduled to arrive at the perfect time to meet another person flying in from a different location."
Cons: "You can't check in to the flight without registering (for what?). Fee policies were unclear until after ticket was purchased "Ultra low fares" are not lower than other airlines so all the hard sell tactics are not actually justified. They just make you look like scam artists. Baggage fees are mind bogglingly confusing and present you with choices for which you may or may not be eligible. Crew constantly reminds us of the crappy service as if they are proud of it (as in "please clean up the plane for us so we can keep your fares low"). Web site does not tell you what will happen if you don't choose a seat."
Cons: "Spirit may as well charge real ticket prices instead of charging arms and legs once they've got you "on the line and in the door". I've NEVER experienced such terrible add-on charges"
