Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Great seat and always on time."
Pros: "I liked the free "meal". I chose the cheese. Reminds me of airlines 15 years ago."
Cons: "Main cabin is not built for people 6 feet tall. My body feels awful after sitting in those seats for 5-6 hours. Reclining causes the seat to shift forward, creating even LESS leg room!"
Pros: "The crew was great, very accommodating food selection was nice."
Cons: "The cabin temperature was extremely warm"
Cons: "I had an isle seat. I felt jostled all the time."
Pros: "The food was improved and the seat was comfortable."
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: "Great flight attendants and crew, 30 min early!!"
Pros: "Food, service and entertainment"
Cons: "Entry into the aircraft was a bit chaotic"
Cons: "3 hours delay"
Pros: "Food and entertainment was good"

Cons: "Everything else"
Pros: "Staff’s attention and patience with customers was great. They knew many were frustrated with the delay but they met our needs with a smile"
Cons: "Weather delay was a real bummer but I liked the app wanted to help reconnect people with other flights. The app should also tell us the reason for the delay, if allowable, especially if it weather. I almost hoed on another flight through Minneapolis but would have been stuck in Minneapolis cause I didn’t know the delay was due to weather an hour later."
Cons: "Had a 5 hour layover - booked first class but this did not entitle me to use the delta lounge in seattle. Snacks only on the flight."

Pros: "On time, pleasant and friendly flight attendant, no unexpected issues or problems."
Cons: "Grumpy gate attendants at YUL! Could not hear the captain’s comments over the PA system. Shouldn’t the volume be checked every so often? We were offered only water or coffee, bad enough, then there was no milk or cream on board, so water or black coffee... not very impressive! And there was no entertainment so I’d rate that zero but the scale only goes as low as one star."
Pros: "absolutely nothing"
Cons: "The crew! So slow! Not helpful with your questions/request and the attitude! What on earth! Awful customer service!"
Pros: "It was great. The flight attendants are always helpful to us."

Pros: "Flight was perfect!"
Cons: "The passenger next to me was occupying 1.5 seats but the crew didn't help."
Pros: "Boarding is easy as always, I like Delta's system."
Cons: "I had a seat by an exit door. I was incredibly uncomfortable the entire flight due to the cold air comin in and hitting my feet / legs. Two coats and a blanket weren't enough to remedy the issue."
Cons: "I'm sure it was an excellent flight. I don't know though because Delta didn't manage to get me on it."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Seats too closely packed little leg room"
Pros: "Food selection and quality were fine. I also enjoyed the entertainment options. Seat area was comfortable and spacious."
Cons: "The flight attendants were uniformly rude and nasty to passengers from start to finish. As I boarded, I asked for a piece of art to be stored in the wardrobe compartment. This was treated as an inconvenience. During and after boarding, flight attendants addressed passengers rudely when encouraging them to take their seats in a timely fashion. Later, when my seat mate politely asked a FA to repeat the food options, she asked, "Excuse me?" several times and seemed very irritated to have to repeat the choices for him. Also, near the end of the flight, a pillow was on the ground and a FA asked those seated in my row to pick it up. We responded that it wasn't ours and she said something to the effect of, "Oh yeah? So how did it get there?" (Maybe because someone else dropped it and we didn't notice?) The FAs seemed irritated to serve passengers at all. Each time they passed through for beverage or meal service, I felt like I was imposing on them. I have never witnessed anything quite like it. Makes me wonder why they were all so upset and and felt it appropriate to speak and act disrespectfully toward customers. (Delta, do you have any insights?) I hope they all got a good night's rest after that haul."
Pros: "Enjoyed food and movies.Woul"
Cons: "Would like more comedy or romance movies. Becky"
Pros: "The staff"
Cons: "I used a regional certificate to upgrade; this wasn't 1st / biz class at all; the seats are just big clunky leather seats, no recline, no leg room. Really disappointing for a red eye flight across the US."

Pros: "I liked the new plane! It seemed like there was just a bit more room. Compared to my flight going out with American, Delta is a much nicer experience."

Cons: "The replacement flight has been delayed almost 2:30 hours due to bad weather in NYC."

Pros: "don't know it's first flight delta's fault or next flight china southern's,arrive 3 days,but still couldn't find our two bags"
Pros: "Direct flight to JFK using Delta. Was not aware that I was NOT flying on West Jet therefore encountered problems searching for a way to check in online. Ground crew airport check in at the Delta counter and at the Boarding gate was helpful and efficient. However request for Special Assistance in Toronto was poorly handled. We did not accept the conditions offered to us as one wheel chair operator had to push 3 passengers and I had to wait for him to return to me after two people were brought to their gates. My Husband had to wheel me in to my gate."
Cons: "Being scammed by the Chinese, China Southern"
Pros: "Arrived early. Helpful staff. Brough food and refreshments fast"

Cons: "Seat wasn't comfortable."
Pros: "Great crew very friendly"
Cons: "Small plane"

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."

Cons: "Very tight quarters, but ok for short flight"
Pros: "Wonderful and super friendly crew"
Cons: "Booked flight with my sister 6 months before departure, paid for both tickets at the same time to find out seat assignment not together.... that could be understable only if ticket is purchased at the last minute. We were applicable to switch with another couple who were in the same situation as us....."
Pros: "The movie/tv system did not work despite a lot of time trying. Very disappointing when taking a long flight with a 10 year old."

Pros: "Plane and fact that pilot was able to make up lost time"
Cons: "Plane had plenty of room for carry on bags. No need for valet bag check."
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."

Cons: "It was only as good as one has gotten used to"
Pros: "Nice new aircraft - clean and comfortable. Entertainment selection and system is excellent. SFO airport is clean and efficient"

Cons: "There wasn't individual entertainment unless i used my own device."
Pros: "Nice entertainment options."
Cons: "No free WiFi for message."
Pros: "The flights were good. The cancellation was handled poorly."
Cons: "AA’s flight was canceled from Seattle to JFK. The flight was then rescheduled to Newark and then Orly. The main problem is that the change didn’t include the infant on lap ticket and ended up with 2 hours in Newark trying to rectify the situation."
Cons: "I really can't believe that this flight didn't have in headrest screens or USB power to keep you devices charged. This was a 6 hour flight across the US. If they don't provide entertainment, at least let the people charge their devices."
Cons: "No personal entertainment devices on 737-800."
Pros: "Entertainment system Leg room"
Cons: "Just one package of snacks for a 6 hour flight Delays going out of NYC"
Cons: "My screen didn't work and the flashing ads gave me a headache"
Pros: "Really? I just gave 1 star. Your feedback form should be smart enough to realize that."
Cons: "It's not finnair. It's American Airlines. The sears were so cramped that I have a horrible backache. Stop calling it finnair. Several airlines booked tickets on this flight. There's nothing good to say."
Cons: "More options with first class food"
Pros: "they would not let me up grade and there was plenty of room to upgrade"
Cons: "I am handicap and was not given a upgrade"
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: "in the gate the crew didnt let me took my only hand bag i have with my personel things including my medcian and cupe machine for brithing they say that my bag is big but itwas in the standert that i was allowed to take up to airplane i think the reason was i was the lat passenger to go in the air aplein and no space t o put the hand bag"
Cons: "Self check-in staff at Seattle was not that helpful."
Pros: "The crew was so friendly and helpful and especially kind to my five year old son."
Cons: "The plane was quite old and so the entertainment options were poor for such a long flight."

Pros: "I know AA and Alask are same company but I bought Alaska ariline ticket and everything I need to deal with is AA. It's too confusing."
Cons: "Too confused!"
Cons: "Our flight from Seattle to JFK was delayed over 11 hours, not because of weather or mechanical issue, but because a flight attendant fell ill and American Airlines had no one to take his or her place. They had to fly in an employee from Texas to cover the shift. Are you kidding me? I understand there are unforeseen events but any reputable airline should have a personnel contingency plan better than that. As a result, we lost a whole day of our vacation, missed our Broadway performance, and others missed their business meetings. All the alerts informing us of the delay were sent long after they already occurred. I will avoid flying American again at all costs."
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."
Cons: "American can claim as many excuses as it would like, but if you can't get customers to its destination in a reasonable amount of time, you're not worth doing business with. I've been trying to get there for 2 days now. I finally canceled and went with a reliable airline. American Airlines: Just a joke of an airline."
Cons: "Space in the economy seemed to be shorter than in other 777-300 of other airlines"
Pros: "Comfortable flight, had power outlets, arrived early. No complaints."
Cons: "hard chairs no space between legs no food nor munchies entertainment can be better"
Pros: "Toooo worst"

Cons: "ran out of the food i wanted. poor selection of food... screen on "tv" was too dark to see details"
Pros: "Nice, normal flight."
Cons: "Pilots not there on time, arrived perhaps 30 minutes late, didn’t say why."

Pros: "The crew did a great job."
Pros: "seat was comfortable, crew was kind"
Cons: "screaming child"
Cons: "Almost a 5 hr flight and there was no food or snacks given and water by request only. It was a full flight and the crew had just an attitude. Never had a flight like this one before. Horrible just horrible"
Pros: "I called to change my flight to an earlier time due to flooding in PA. The lady who helped me did an equal exchange for my ticket and waved the $200 fee. I was extremely pleased and appreciative. Also, excellent movie choices and food options. I will definitely continue flying with United."
Cons: "Worst flight experience ever."
Pros: "The flight was smooth and on time Liked the window seat Staff friendly and courteous"
Cons: "Legroom is uncomfortable. I'm 5'11 and it is tight, and there is barely any recline anymore No power in the seats - there is a Wifi entertainment option (good) for you to use your own device, though need to run on battery Security checks took more than 1h, almost making me miss boarding There are enough drawbacks/compromises regarding customer service that I will alternatives where they exist"
Pros: "I liked the movie screen showing me where we were and how much longer it would take to get to the destination. The flight was super smooth."
Cons: "No decaf on an overnight flight. No cookie, only a tiny package of pretzels. Cheapskates."
Pros: "Stewardess was very kind and engaging, even in the middle of the night!"
Pros: "Crew still came through cabin even though it was an overnight flight to see if anyone needed anything."
Cons: "The way the plane was boarded which I have found is the way United boards."
Pros: "Enjoyed only the comfort didn't get woken up for snacks and the crew members weren't very welcoming"
Cons: "I enjoyed Only the entertainment"
Pros: "Just couldn't recline enough to sleep"
Cons: "Pretzels were the only free food available."
Cons: "The delays of airplanes making one almost miss a connecting flight and then arrive at destination super late inconveniencing everyone."
Cons: "Delayed flight. Last time when i'm flying with United!"
Cons: "The seating was the worst I've ever had in my life and I've traveled my whole life. After I finish this trip I will never take United again. Everything else was wonderful"
Cons: "The flight was canceled because of the weather and then I have to wait more hours in the airport for the next flight.."
Pros: "This new ticket where you have basic economy and pay for everything is ridiculous. You can't take a high end airlines and make it a basic economy people don't like that. Is this the worse version of Spirit airlines?"
Cons: "Just feels Cheap. Baggage claim took forever"
Pros: "Only 5 1/2 hours"
Cons: "It wasn't ANA!"
Pros: "The price was cheaper than the other airlines. The flight itself was pretty smooth with very little turbulence."
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable, and the coffee was way too strong, and there was no Splenda, only Equal, which contrary to the flight attendant's knowledge is NOT "the same thing." United provides only 1 cheap sugary snack for the whole 5 hour flight. Couldn't get my phone to connect to the internet b/c I didn't have my United Mileage plan number written down or recorded anywhere, and I didn't have the card with me. To top it off, there was a screaming toddler in the next aisle over."
Pros: "They gave meal vouchers to make up for their mistake in canceling the flight."
Cons: "They cancelled the flight. They didn't come around with water enough."
Pros: "Boarding. Took off early and landed early"
Cons: "Everything else. Seats were uncomfortable. One crew member smelled of some nasty perfume that burned my eyes and nose when she bumped her way down the aisle. Ground crew was rude at check in. Mischarged me for baggage. No entertainment on my ipad. Noisy."
Pros: "I was pleased with the timely departure."
Cons: "I could not put my coat in the overhead compartment."
Pros: "Every thing I like about the flight"
Pros: "Flight attendants were good. Pilot kept folks updated when there was an initial delay."
Cons: "Seats on United seem to be even smaller than other carriers. I'm 5'5'' and 110 lbs and I was still quite cramped."
Cons: "Had a mechanical issue with the plane.. It happened a.. I get it.. But they put us on another plane with out even bothering to tell us what seats they were.. Had a horrible seat... The new ticket I was issued would not scan.. Same thing happened on the way back... Got new seats and horrible ones at that.. Why book your seats if you are gonna get moved anyways?!?!? Never fly United."
Pros: "I'm never traveling with United again."
Pros: "The patient staff kept the Newark to Boston crowd sane as the 47 minute flight turned into 5 1/2 hour saga."
Cons: "Weather and forgetfulness turned our hopper flight into a 5.5 hour saga. Even though weather was the main cause for the initial delay, the plane then had to be refueled while the passengers sat on the plane, the passenger Act was used not one (but almost twice) and then air traffic control wouldn't organize the retake- off in a timely manner."
Pros: "Crew were nice especially at boarding."
Cons: "No free entertainment despite having a screen at each cramped seat. No nuts, pretzels or anything else offered with the beverage. Only food available was being sold. Had to pay for each checked bag. Website is one of the least user friendly of any of the airlines."
Pros: "Getting off the plane."
Cons: "They lost my bag Cramped flight First pilot didn't know how to land a plane Oh and the flight was delayed by 3 hours so we almost missed our connection flight."
Pros: "I made it safely to my destination"
Cons: "the boarding process was cumbersome. My seat didn't recline as it was immediately before an exit row, which was located in different rows according to the seating plan available when purchasing my seats online."
Pros: "Lots of leg rooms with United"
Cons: "Flight home had a long layover"
Pros: "In seat entertainment was pretty good. Food was also surprisingly good, though it would have been nice if bigger. To be fair, it was typical sized for an airline meal."
Cons: "They ran out of wine in economy. I had two tiny cups and then was told they were all out. Seats in economy plus only barely reclined. I just can't sleep on an overnight flight when sitting virtually vertical. I was seated in economy plus so the legroom was reasonable."
Pros: "Crew in flight was very helpful and professional."
Cons: "Oversold flight! Very stressful waiting to find out if I had a seat, though I had booked the flight a month and a half prior and arrived early and needed to make a connecting flight. I was the last one on the plane as they pulled off volunteers they had seated already. Seemed very disorganized."
Pros: "I was happy to have leg room on this flight. My first one was way too cramp"
Cons: "Why does the crew giving the announcement have to either hell into the microphone or why does the speakers so loud it was deafing!"
Cons: "Flight was late , and many other issues"
Pros: "I was able to get a seat change so that I had some great leg room."
Cons: "There was no internet or video content without huge fees."
Cons: "4.5 hr.delay due to crew unavailability."
Pros: "It's was fine no issues"
Cons: "Too close of a connection flight."
Pros: "The flight attendants were extremely nice."
Cons: "Flight was needlessly delayed. No help given. Horrible."
Cons: "Lost my second flight because first one late, got a standby ticket for next flight, but the plane was full, was hungry, no money to spend in airport restaurants, United company should provide at least a breakfast for this inconvenience. Next flight will be with another company for sure."
Pros: "The flight was everything I imagined."
Pros: "I've only used United a handful of times between London and New York. They've been okay. The worst flight was on an older plane that felt like it'd been built in 1975, and the entertainment was rubbish. The staff however are always pleasant and accommodating. Their service was just as good on my heavily delayed return flight, and managed to handle the tired, short fused customers with aplomb. Hats off to them."
Cons: "My return flight from EWR to LHR was delayed by 4.5hours. Initially it was a 20minute delay; then we boarded the plane, only to sit still for an hour due to technical difficulties. Then we were delayed by another 30 minutes. Then we were asked to leave the plane as a replacement jet was required. It was meant to take 15 minutes, when it actually took at least 1.5 hours. It was a 6.10pm flight, and we boarded the new plane at 9.30pm. We eventually jetted off at 10.30pm. I'de received 10 text messages stating each each rescheduled/delayed departure time. Sadly, it's the worst flight I've ever had. I ended up 3.5 hours late for work, missed an important business meeting. Shame."
Pros: "We left on time"
Cons: "No leg room what so ever. I was cramped into my seat. The service was terrible"
Cons: "My first flight with United leaving from DC was delayed multiple times and therefore I missed my connecting flight from Newark. I stayed at a hotel to catch the next flight with British Airways leaving from DC to London but had already checked my bags in and could not find out where they were, so I slept with only my handbag! I was never reimbursed for my stay at the Marriott even though I had no control over the flight that was delayed for unknown reasons. After all seemed okay and I reached Mumbai I expected my checked in bag to be at the baggage claim area. I waited for two hours and still had no idea where my bags were. I was very frustrated at this point. I was then advised to create a customer care case with British airways to track my lost baggage, even though United should have handled the transfer of luggage earlier. I called back for three days straight, again I was still without clothes and toiletries his whole time, and the service was dismal. After I got in touch with British and United and got everything sorted out I had my bags delivered to my address in India. The terror continued. I opened my bags and found some minor electronics and other valuables missing! How does that even happen if the bags were previously screened and processed in the States? Overall, I was extremely dissatisfied with this entire experience and do not recommend booking with United Airways at any cost!"
Pros: "Crew was nice. Smooth flight."
Cons: "flight delay, then another equipment delay. But, better to fly in a safe airplane than rush things. I think the seats would be a little uncomfortable for a flight longer than a couple hours."
Pros: "It was timely no long lines"
Cons: "No free drinks"
Pros: "The safety announcement just before take off was a refreshing & original presentation done by the very cheerful flight attendant, Brittany."
Cons: "There was a 70 pound German Shepherd taking up my fiance's leg room"
Pros: "The staff on our flight to Philadelphia was excellent!"
Cons: "We arrived at Miami Airport 2 1/2 hours before our flight as request by your airline request only to find no staff .to check luggage. We waited an hour along with 60 other people before any of your staff decided to come to work. I walk with a cane and there were several seniors would had to wait in line. I think it is ridiculous that you do not have staff at the kiosk for your early morning flights. This type of service is unacceptable!"
Pros: "flights there and back left on time. significantly more leg room than on the United flight I took to mexico city recently. seats don't lean back but I don't care about that, and it means that the person in front of me won't be leaning their seat back into me. You have to be very careful that you understand all the rules about baggage and seating (don't pay extra-they'll just assign you one, and you probably won't sit with your traveling companion). Great as long as you can fit everything you need into a bag that fits under the seat in front of you. got TSA pre-check both ways, too. yippee."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled and I had to buy another flight at the last minute with Delta. Frontier's website did not mention the cancellation at all and I had to find it on Google and Flightview. They refunded me but it could've costed me big-time if I didn't find a cheap last minute flight."
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: "The flight was on time and we arrived earlier than anticipated."
Cons: "Seats don't recline on frontier plane."
Pros: "Staff was nice"
Cons: "They have stripped down the seats of this plane to make more room to squeeze in more rows. The seats are incredibly uncomfortable even for my short 3 hour flight. The try table is less than the size of a half sheet of paper - you simply cannot put your laptop up and work. $35 for a carry on, nickel and dime you for everything including a drink. Last time I will be flying frontier!"
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 ."
Pros: "Cheap fare, but you pay for everything else. Crew were fun. Plane is spartan."
Cons: "Everything has a price. Everything."
Cons: "flight got cancelled at last moment"
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: "The flight crew was friendly."
Cons: "No snacks. Having to pay for a beverage. And there were no in-flight entertainment options and no magazines in the seat back pocket."
Cons: "Bag fair, airline in general"
Pros: "I specifically loved all of the crew members on my flights to Orlando and back home. They gave me a few good laughs with their jokes and funny expressions. Another great factor of using Frontier is that they keep you up to schedule with your flight by sending you emails from the morning of until your flight departs to insure you don't miss a gate change or flight delays."
Cons: "The only downfall of using this airline is that the customer is not informed before hand that you have to pay an additional, but small, cost to choose your seat. The customer is also charged for a carry on unlike some other airlines who allow 1 free carry on."
Pros: "I felt deceived by Frontier. I knew paying the low fair I was going to get a bare bones trip. I was fine with paying for my own drink. I cannot believe that the airline is charging $40 bags for a carry on!!!!!! Also I had to pay an additional $27 each so my husband and I could sit together. Shame on you frontier. Of given the choice I will NEVER fly with this airline again. Everyone I tell about my experience has their own negative story to tell about Frontier. I suggest you change your practice before you go out of business. My final cost was double the original price of my original ticket. Just price the ticket as it should be."
Pros: "Boarded on Time Flight smooth and early. Only disruptions were at the airport its self."
Pros: "Cost of the flight was substantially less than another airline I was looking into and it was a nonstop flight, whereas the other airlines had 1 or 2 stops. Both flights were on time...everything went smoothly. Flight attendants were very pleasant."
Cons: "Paying for a carryon was unexpected; it adds about $35 each way), but you are able to carry a smaller bag at no charge."
Cons: "Bait & Switch or Bait & Pile Two plane tickets priced at 156.00 ended up costing 364.00 because I wanted to sit with my wife and we each wanted to bring one carry-on bag! Refused to pay an ADDITIONAL 45.00 each to sit in comfortable seats!"
Pros: "Cheap tickets"
Cons: "No food or entertainment"
Pros: "Counter person said next flight he could book us on was Jan 03, 6 days later. We ended up renting a car and driving from Chicago to Philly. If there had been an ounce of concern over our condition by this worker I would feel differently, but Frontier will get no more of my familiy's business."
Pros: "The seats had a surprising amount of legroom, and the staff was nice (though i'm not sure why there were as many as a normal flight from another airline, since they don't do anything beyond the safety demo)"
Cons: "You are not adequately made aware that you will be charged for carry on unlike other airlines. And in doing so, the price of the ticket goes from being impressively cheap to being more than a flight from another airline that has more included amenities, like actual refreshements and free carry-ons. You also get charged for just selecting a seat, not a special seat, but ANY SEAT AT ALL. So the price you initially see when searching for flights is quite misleading. In reality, you should ad at least 50 bucks to any frontier ticket to get a truer picture of what the price would be for a normal passenger with a single carry-on that wants a particular seat."
Cons: "Hidden fees! Seat fees, checks. Bag fees. And what the **** is a carry-on bag fee? And after paying $75 to have two small bags TOTAL, y'all lost my luggage? Never again."
Pros: "NOT MUCH!"
Cons: "This was my first time using Frontier Airlines. The price and schedule met my needs. After paying $30/each way for checking my bag plus paying for a seat (would they allow me to stand?) not sure it was so good a price. The worst was when three flights came in at the same time and ALL the luggage was sent to the same area. I WAITED AN HOUR TO GET MY SUITCASE."
Cons: "Picture the waiting room at the Social Security office... Turned into an airplane... Same seats, same people! Here's the cherry on top of this Turd Sundae: Kayak sent me an email saying the flight was delayed an hour, I show up an hour later and it turns out the plane was never delayed! I almost missed the flight! I'm never flying Frontier or using Kayak again."
Cons: "Worst costumer service I have ever dealt with. Spoke with three employees that each told me to do something different. Finally, spoke to a department head and was told that his employees were misspoken. Who trains these guys?"
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!!"
Pros: "The staff was helpful and polite. Although plane was delayed it still arrived in good time."
Cons: "Not much leg room. Paying to pick your seat is ridiculous when traveling with family."
Pros: "By far the cheapest flight...and it was non-stop. No problems with anything. Would definitely use again. Some of the people complaining should do their homework. Everything is spelled out in terms of costs."
Pros: "Absolutely the worst airline I have ever been on! You buy the ticket under the assumption you got a great deal. What they do not not tell you is that when you purchase an economy ticket, which everyone buys except first class you have to pay for carry on. Your first checked in bag costs $40, any bag after that is $45. So my carry on bag cost $45! Between my husband and I we spent a total of $170 on luggage for two checked bags and two carry ons. So if you are bringing any luggage with you, go on a different airline, you will save money by the end of the day. Also, all drinks and food are for purchase."
Cons: "The captain said no gates were available so they delayed our flight for an hour after they let us board the plane. Almost all of the gates in the terminal were available when we got to Philadelphia. Frontier doesn't give out free drinks or peanuts on the flight. They also charge $5 extra if you don't check your bag online. The seat doesn't recline. Frontier is by far the worst airline ever!!!!"
Cons: "I didn't like paying for a seat that I already purchased. Perhaps I'm "old fashioned" in that when I buy a ticket, I automatically get a seat. But at check-in when given my seat selection I could choose $13 seats or $20 seats. I thought this wasn't allowed anymore in that your purchase price is the price you pay unless you upgrade to a better seat."
Pros: "The pilot was very friendly, I liked his tie. The copilot was also friendly."
Cons: "The rest of the staff were rude and unprofessional. The chairs were so uncomfortable. There was no complimentary drink, and when you ask for just water the staff rolls their eyes and gives it to you as if it was the biggest inconvenience for them. When they approach you with the cart they say, "Is anyone purchasing anything?" I also didn't like that there was hardly any announcements on the loudspeaker to let us know about what is happening, or when we might approximately be landing."
Cons: "flight was an hour off with no explanation as to the cause. Seats did not recline and were terribly uncomfortable."
Pros: "We had a flight to Philadelphia we boarded on time and landed early! It was great!"
Pros: "flight was pretty much on time, attendants were steady and pleasant."
Cons: "Seats weren't very comfortable and cramped, baggage charges were excessive, low class travel."
Pros: "The overall experience was ok, I was on time so I can't complain."
Cons: "Every time they have a massive line waiting to check in, they seem to only have one attendant available, causing massive delays checking in. We stood in a line for over an hr."
Pros: "The crew and ticket price are the only positive things I can think of."
Cons: "You have to pay ridiculous prices for just about everything. If water wasn't necessary for basic survival they probably would've charged at least 1 dollar per ounce. You can't recline and leg room is scarce."
Pros: "Timely and efficient"
Cons: "Charged for everything"
Pros: "Frontier airines was great. We got a ridiculously cheap flight so to pay $30 for a carry on was no problem. We knew all the fees up front so we planned accordingly and packed light. Staff was friendly and organized. Flight got in early."
Pros: "On both fights I was surprised by the overbearing rudeness of the flight attendants. I turned around when I heard a loud female voice chastising someone only to find the attendant speaking to a customer. On my return flight, the pilot came in hot causing the wings to sway wildly when on the ground. The stewardess actually said, over the loudspeaker, "yehaw - we're back in Texas!!" This did not comfort me. Also, I travel alot. This was my first experience on Frontier for years. Not impressed with anything but the price."
Pros: "Polite and Pleasant staff. Clean airplane. Inexpensive ticket. Direct flight. Couldn't ask for anything else. Thanks Frontier!"
Cons: "Everything is tribble I will never fly with frontier airline again"
Cons: "My military plane showed up a little late so when I showed up to check in their was no one in sight due to there stupid 45 minute policy. So I had to buy a whole new ticket with another airline worth ALOT more then what the Frontier one was"
Pros: "Boarding was quick, being in the front of the plane was nice, and the flight staff were professional and excellent"
Cons: "Seats weren't that comfortable, but spacious enough."
Cons: "It was delayed and arrived 2 hours late. I had booked the flight specifically for its departure and arrival time. It was my first time flying with Frontier, and I will not fly with them again."
Pros: "The plan was new and clean. Nice job on the finishes.flight was turbulent and the staff was very attentive to those passenger that needed assistance,great job."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed and we received no explanation to as why. Then when we boarded the flight it was half empty. But everyone was seated towards the back of the plan on top of each other.I asked the attendant if me and my son could move to one of the at least 20 empty rows, because we were seated apart from each other ,was told I would have to wait even though the boarding was completed. The attendant came back selected to move 3 rows of passengers to balance out the flight and never move us. And to pay for carry-on is ridiculous!"
Pros: "I upgraded to the bigger chair and it was comfy."
Cons: "A cup of water would've been nice."
Pros: "The crew was great shirt trip"
Cons: "It will be better to include the bags in the fly ticket for some reason. Before we checked in, a lady told us to just print the boarding pass and go inside in order for us not to miss the fly when we asked if we can have as discount because we did not know about the carry-on bags. Outside was $55 for a bags and $65 at the gate. Which is $10 more for each additional bags. This is stealing money from people and they are sending passengers away from Spirit airlines. I don't recommend to anyone. Even water, you have to pay for it."
Cons: "I wasn’t sent an email or text letting me know the flight was delayed 3 HOURS!! I was traveling from Northern Michigan and would’ve changed my travel to Detroit had I known. I had to spend time waiting in the airport."
Cons: "Spirit terminal at Las Vegas was hopelessly crowded; standing room only. By contrast the Southwest terminal next door was orderly and calm. Spirit needs to find a location in the airport with more space."
Pros: "Airplane was new and comfortable. The crew was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Being charged for the ability to choose a seat and bring a carry on bag makes Spirit less of a discount airline."
Pros: "Flight departed on time. Price of tickets was nice."
Cons: "Waiting for baggage took some time..."
Pros: "A 2hour delay cause of air traffic"
Pros: "Direct flight into Myrtle Beach"
Cons: "Excessive baggage fees, Spirit is a joke, they should not tout themselves as a discount carrier and then charge for everything but air !!!"
Cons: "Not even a free cup of water???? I paid $457 for a one-way ticket and on top of that I paid another $47 for a stupid carry on (in which I could be a second bag on any other airline for that price!) and when I ask for a cup of water because I was thirsty I had to pay?? the chairs are small and dont recline. I definitely did not have a good experience with this 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."
Pros: "The color of the plane loud and wild passengers."
Cons: "An aborted Landing approximately 800ft above the ground. Pilot almost landed at he wrong airfield"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and I liked the sense of humor mixed in with the overhead announcements"
Cons: "Upon checking in I was informed that my backpack counts as my ONE free carry on and I would have to pay $50 to check in my tiny suitcase or $55 to have it as a second "carry on." Since when is a back pack a carry on? Boarding was delayed for at least 30 minutes with no explanation given to us. Very bare minimum plane with no entertainment other than what you bring with you. Any snack or drink costs money, no cash."
Cons: "Paying for every single carry on suitcase"
Pros: "Excellent pilot and crew"
Cons: "Difficult and deceptive company."
Cons: "Secong time in one year with no compensation."
Pros: "Quick boarding. No frills airline. Want a cheap seat and dont care about other things like reclining chairs then this is the airline for you. Everything besides a small personal backpack costs money. Want to bring your normal carry-on thats $55. Want food or drink thatll cost extra. No entertainment."
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Nothing bad service all the way"
Cons: "Miss info paying for my bag 55 $ 18 $extra for my seat"
Cons: "Luggage limit 40 lbs instead of 50 lbs like every other airline, so they can charge you $30 dollars more for your luggage when you get to the gate. The flight was oversold, they had people on standby. $5 for half a cup of soda or juice, they don't even give you your whole can. Plane was freezing, people were wearing their polar fleece. On top of that, they announce an advertisement for their credit card aboard, with a whole plane of captive listeners forced to hear. Awful customer service, no phone number to call, will never fly spirit again If I can ever help it!!!"
Cons: "I will never take the spirit airline any more!"
Pros: "Seats looked new"
Cons: "The flight was delayed over an hour & half due to 'no landing time in NY'. Totally unrelated to weather or the aircraft. Drinks are available for a fee - even water!"
Cons: "They claim to be the best because of the "no frills" fares, etc...having to pay for luggage and carry on is ridiculous! The seats are the most uncomfortable, no tvs, no space, no reclining seats -- jet blue costs the same and has amazing features, service and crew...I'm never flying Spirit again!!!"
Cons: "i had to pay my on board luggage, the chair doesn't reclinate, no food, no intertainment and the price was not that cheap to justify all of these down sides"
Pros: "prompt service on time departure"
Cons: "Not happy with Spirit charging for ANY service or even water on board"
Cons: "I DON'T WANT ANY FLIGHT CREDITS."
Pros: "Nothing would never fly spirit! Nickel & dime u to death could have flown first class on any other airline by time finished all additional supplement payments!"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "The crew was very nice and pleasant to interact with. Best part of the flight."
Cons: "Seats didn't recline. Soda and water was not complimentary which is kind of a joke that a major airline can't even provide that service. Bag fees are outrageous."
Pros: "Nothing at all. Worst experience ever in 34 years of travelling."
Cons: "First answer is selfexplanatory!"
Cons: "find fault with each pound if the customer exceeds the weight of the luggage 2 pound the flesh once you have a lot of money and when my wife and l flew from New York to Dallas and we had two small suitcases (roller) the employee ran after us and said that they should be put into the luggage and we said that we have to pay $100 when other companies do not to the same ,these roller were tested for patterns and they have stood the but she told us that you still need to pay a surrender and FLHN on the plane, l saw those rollers and missed the plane, they wewre even slinghtly thicket"
Cons: "It was not clearly conveyed when purchasing the ticket that baggage fees were not included in the base price. Thus, we not only had to pay to check 2 bags and 2 carry-ons for 170$, we also had to pay an extra 100$ because our checked bags were "overweight" at 50lbs (they only accept 40lbs bags) - and this was only ONE WAY. We will have to pay that $270 on our return flight as well. Ultimately our baggage fees cost us 4X more than our two ticket fares combined! Now I wouldn't call that a "bargain" by any means - we could have gotten two first-class tickets on delta for the total amount we ended up paying. We will never fly spirit again and will ultimately think twice when booking through kayak. What a bummer."
Cons: "Spirit seats are too tight. The airline is chintzy and I'll never fly them again"
Cons: "No one ask me if Wanted water. I finally went to the back & a stewardess gave me a cup of water."
Pros: "I could not believe how much extra money was spent on very basic necessities. Choosing any seat (not just an exit row or extra leg room), paying for $40 to check a bag, and then an addition $25 at the gate because my bag was over 40 pounds. (Every other airline's rule is 50 pounds.)"
Pros: "new. clean plane. the flight was 20 minutes landing... great service. Great price!"
Cons: "There was nothing to not like..."
Pros: "I like low fare and overall serveice"
Pros: "Crew was fantastic but limited comfort in the cabin unless purchase 'extra room' seat."
Cons: "One lavatory was out-of-order, no leg room unless pay extra and bags slow being brought to baggage-claim area."
Cons: "Crowded, no leg room, plane is cramped, moved flight times ahead of schedule so half of the customers had to run to the terminal, showed up thirty minutes early at destination but had to sit and wait for 40 minutes"
Pros: "Crew were friendly"
Cons: "Waiting over hour for luggage to be unloaded, seats were uncomfortable, $50 for checking a bag a little crazy too"
Cons: "Spirit starts with a very appealing price and by the time your finished with them charging you for EVERYTHING, you may as well have taken a much better airline. It is like staying at the Motel 6 instead of the Hilton. You feel like cattle the entire time. You need to be there 2 hours before your national, not international, flight just to be sure you make it to the gate on time, because the lines for check in are so long. You have to pay for a sip of water if you want one. They have four stewards and stewardesses who stand around and literally do nothing on the plane. They don't even check to see if electronic devices are turned off, or seatbelts are buckled. I hated the whole experience"
Pros: "Efficient operation. Of course there was no entertainment and I did not purchase any food so I can not comment on the food."
Cons: "Having to wait 8.5 hours in LGA because the boarding doors were closed 15 minutes prior to departure and I arrived at the gate 10 minutes prior to scheduled departure because I was stuck in a traffic jam for over an hour because of an automobile accident."
Cons: "No one knows the details or reason of why the flight was cancelled. Moreover, most people have terrible attitude and are very unprofessional."
Pros: "On this flight the seats were better then the flight going to Fort Lauderdale."
Cons: "Flight 711 out of Myrtle Beach,SC was cancelled without any notification! Only emails I got were one saying my flight was on time and then another, 20min later, saying flight was delayed. My wife and I and about eight other people were there without any notifications of the cancellation and the spirit workers had no remorse and were rude! They did not care we were late for our honeymoon. Thank goodness we at least got our money back but I think there should be something else coming from them for the hassles we had to tolerate yesterday December 14, 2015 considering we had to pay double the price of our original tickets on a different airline."
Pros: "I got a brand new plane and there was more leg room and the crew was very nice besides one guy could even be that he was the boss of the crew. Even though the flight was delayed we landed the same time"
Cons: "That I had to pay five bucks!! For only two cans of coke and my back was hurting a bit after the flight and that there was a delay....."
Pros: "Every thing was as expected new plane friendly staff. Overall good experience except end price by the time you buy seat pay for luggage cup of coffee as expensive trip as other air lines."
Pros: "Hate this airline.. Everything is an add on long lines the ultimate in no frills no personal service truly low class"
Cons: "Delayed. And charged for everything"
Pros: "The flight was just good, not much space for passengers, but I have to say that during the flight I was carrying a big amount of money and I fall asleep and lost it without notice, a flight attendant found it and gave ibacknd to me, that was pretty remarcable for me."
