Cons: "Boarding is not very organized."
Pros: "The crew was great. I love the hot tea selection on Alaska."

Cons: "Boarding can be little more faster"
Pros: "Very helpful and sweet staff"
Pros: "Crew was great"
Pros: "Nothing. Missed the connection due to being on the tarmac/runway for over a hour and a half. Missed my connection"
Cons: "Everything from flight schedule to customer service could have been better. Alaska Airlines is horrible"
Pros: "Biscoff cookies are the best please never stop serving them!"
Cons: "We were almost treated as if we were stand by people instead of paid passengers. They didn't give us seats until the last minute because we used saver prices... Because i found a bargain price i get treated as lesser? Not cool."
Cons: "Very poor internet"
Pros: "The flight was on time, turbilance very little and the captain gave good info. Flight crew friendly and very nice. This was a first time flight with them but not the last I will book more flights"
Pros: "Friendly & helpful staff. Patient & understanding."
Pros: "Crew was very pleasant."
Cons: "Spent an hour attempting to get the "free" wifi to work on two different devices on my round trip flights. It is probably not the airline's fault, but with that being said, it was extremely inconvenient."
Pros: "Good leg room, thank you"
Cons: "I can't complain, it was a cheap flight, they got me there."
Pros: "Attendants were negligent. Asked for water many times, but didn't get any response. They were busy chit chatting. Internet - only 20 mb , that too for 2 hours continuous. Food was not that good. And only 2 meals for 14 hr flight!!"
Cons: "Attendants were negligent. Asked for water many times, but didn't get any response. They were busy chit chatting. Internet - only 20 mb , that too for 2 hours continuous. Food was not that good. And only 2 meals for 14 hr flight!!"
Cons: "The seats keep getting smaller and Americans keep getting larger. Not a fan!"
Pros: "As bout as relaxing and enjoyable as a tall guy can have on a flight!"
Pros: "Great price, good flight."
Cons: "On our flight to Seattle there was a flight attendant who looked a little annoyed with her day, but hey, we all have days. She didn’t treat me any different than anyone else."
Cons: "- There was a delay in boarding. - One of the crew wasn’t that professional when it came to reminding people to follow certain things. (We just simply did not hear the announcement!) And the reason probably was that we were the only teenagers (without adults) on that flight."
Pros: "Liked the free entertainment app"
Pros: "Very smooth flight. Crew was very humble and nice. Will most definitely fly Alaskan again!"
Cons: "Flight attendant could've been more nice. Only using half a coke can then throwing it away. I would've drank it all."
Pros: "Loading was efficient"
Pros: "Great service!"
Pros: "Outlets in the planes!!!"
Cons: "Delay on one flight"

Pros: "Smooth fight and ahead of schedule"
Pros: "On time. Good crew."
Cons: "By this time in my trip, my day had been so long, and I was still so upset over how late we were due to some selfish individuals and an airline catering to them, that I was not capable of assessing the flight. Icelandair did lose my check baggage. Which means that out of three times I have flown with Icelandair, they have lost my checked baggage twice. Another reason I doubt I will ever use Icelandair again."
Cons: "long delay before depaarture"
Pros: "Flight crew was great."
Cons: "The flight was fine, however the customer service at the airport in Seattle was the worst experience I've ever had. I ended up missing my flight because of it. Everyone I dealt with, apart from the gentleman that changed my flight to the next one, was rude. I will likely try to avoid Alaska Airlines in the future for fear of having to deal with them in the airport."
Cons: "$25 checked bag fee!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed, not too long, but always seems to happen when I fly Alaska out of Sea-Tac!"
Pros: "Amazing plane and crew for a short trip"
Pros: "We were on a trip that involved 6 flights over 2 weeks with three different airlines. The economy comfort surpasses the other airlines. Comfortable seats and more leg room which was important to me since I had fractured my leg and was wearing a cast. Flight crew was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The airline is fabulous, the airport is not."
Pros: "Alaska boards from the back of the plane forward which makes boarding fast. We were all loaded and ready to go 15 minutes before departure time. Seats were roomy and each had a plug for charging phones/ipads, etc."

Cons: "NA. Alaska Air is definitely a great company"
Pros: "Roomer seats didn't feel cramped or jamed in."
Cons: "Pressured to change seats. Promised rebate for next flight, but haven't received email. I have Crohn's disease and didn't want to be moved from the aisle and away from the bathroom, but I was embarrassed to explain that to the large group of people at the counter, so I moved."
Pros: "I liked the power outlet and free sodas"
Pros: "The crew was great, the plane clean. Took off on time, landed on time. leg room was decent. Seat profile is thinner with a hard foam, not uncomfortable but different, this is what improved the leg room."
Cons: "This was a redeye with 180 or so other people. The guy in front of me had his seat back all flight even when the crew said raise the seat backs for takeoff and landing. Seats were difficult to sleep in, head rest while adjustable is thin and gave no real head support, at the end of the flight my neck felt like it had whiplash. No food, on a 5+ hour flight, it was overnight, but the seat head rests made sleeping difficult."
Pros: "There was an amazing variety of tv shows and movies. That is essential for long flights like ours was."
Cons: "For long haul flights, I am used to being offered a pillow/blanket, even when sitting in economy."
Cons: "Baggage was extremely delayed. Boarding and take off were delayed too"
Cons: "They need to make more leg room in ALL planes"
Pros: "Flight was comfortable and smooth all the way"
Cons: "Tastier food options"
Pros: "Average flight. Crew was polite."
Cons: "On time performance. Barely made my connecton, because of flight delay. Seems like only 1 in 5 flights are on time according to flightaware.com."
Cons: "We weren't alerted there was a chance of delays. Over two hours late."
Pros: "The cabin was to warm"
Cons: "The cabin was to warm"
Pros: "Great seat easy flight. The food always seem to be the same. I wish they would change it up every once in a while. I've been on this flight 14 times this year and its always exactly the same.."
Cons: "The gate was under construction in Seattle, and it was impossible to hear the gate agents."
Pros: "Awesome prompt and courteous service."
Pros: "Great staff and they worked hard to make the flight comfortable."
Cons: "The seats are small and the plane feels like a Sardine can."

Pros: "Food, service and entertainment"
Cons: "Entry into the aircraft was a bit chaotic"
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: "I loved flying delta comfort. I’m going to do it more often."
Pros: "absolutely nothing"
Cons: "The crew! So slow! Not helpful with your questions/request and the attitude! What on earth! Awful customer service!"
Cons: "Too many interruptions on the inflight entertainment."
Pros: "Boarding was on time and the process was efficient."
Cons: "The flight attendant could not serve coffee or tea due to "no potable water" onboard! The electric outlets at each of our first class seats were not functional, both the USB ports and the electric plugs did not work so we were not able to charge our phones during the flight. When I mentioned this to the flight attendant her response was that she had not received a report that the electric was not working. No other assistance was offered. There was very little legroom even though these were sold as first class seats. The plane was old and dirty, the armrests were sticky."
Cons: "Old cramped untidy and limited drink service"
Pros: "Good food, excellent service"
Cons: "Seats did not have enough storage."
Cons: "Seats a bit cramped"
Cons: "The crew appeared tired, scattered, and unhappy. The flight was delayed after boarding nearly 1hr while repairs were completed. 1st announcement by captains crew stated passengers could disembark during repair, then stated 10min later to take a seat. Very poor communication."
Pros: "Wifi for entertainment worked well"
Cons: "No longer have entertainment on back of seats"
Pros: "Getting to China, albeit two days late."
Cons: "The fact that the lack of knowledge regarding international travel visas by the counter staff and supervisor meant that two days of the vacation were lost. Upon arrival in China the 144 hour travel visa was granted with no problem within minutes, but the U.S. staff was completely befuddled by the possibility. The interrogation was completely stressful and resulted in a reschedule of the original flight and during the second attempt at flying even an email from the U.S. consulate with a link to the Shanghai/Chinese government immigration site was deemed "not official enough". i will be expecting proper compensation. I was once given an $850 travel voucher for voluntarily giving up my seat, and was flown first class to Hawaii, given 4 star accomodation and then flown first class on to China within 48 hours. This was an involuntary bump from our chosen flight time, all because of a lack of knowledge about current visa regulations and international law on the part of the check in staff. We have been loyal Delta users for over 15 years, and this was the biggest blunder ever. Also humiliating and extremely frustrating, stressful and a big problem with fulfilling our travel plans between son and father."
Pros: "Clean & modern aircraft Comfortable seat Proactive customer service"
Cons: "Delayed departure (due to Air Traffic Control) Finding my bag damaged on arrival More refreshments would have been nice"
Pros: "Tv on flight"
Cons: "Flight attendant skipped me for drinks"
Pros: "The entertainment system had a wide selection of good movies to watch."
Cons: "The seat was busted and could barely recline at all."
Pros: "Fast boarding, everyone nice."
Cons: "Wifi was yo and down the whole flight, about 20 times, so kids were not entertained."
Pros: "we got on another air conditioned plane"
Cons: "We initially were put on a plane with defective air conditioning.... it took 90 minutes to finally decide to put us on another plane. The older planes have hardly any room under the seat in the isle seats."
Pros: "Great staff, polite and helpful"
Cons: "Small seats"
Pros: "Very attentative."
Cons: "Aircraft was smelling bad! Hygiene is the key"
Pros: "EZ play newer plane nice staff"
Cons: "Power plugs did not work in seating row and air vents did not work"
Pros: "Helpful staff. Never felt rushed if I had a question. The special meal (VLML) was excellent. Tasty, filling and nutritious Plenty of foot room in economy."
Pros: "Nice Pajamas. Individual window seat. Decent food."
Cons: "Seat ptich could be/should be - wider. Snacks can be better and have better option.. ( only Apple for a fruit? Gimme a break)"
Pros: "Nothing. Delta sucks!"
Cons: "Poor management prior boarding"
Pros: "The movies."
Cons: "Horrible food and Very very uncomfortable seats. Absolutely NO leg room. One of these days Delta is going to be sued for deep vein thrombosis (blood clot)."
Cons: "Crew forget to feed quarter of passenger, and did it after reminder from passenger. No movies with Russian translation or titles. Flight arrived at Amsterdam 50 min later, and we missed our direct flight to Kiev"
Pros: "Economy seats are comfortable. I wasn't compressed in any way sitting in a window seat. Delta is my go-to airline. Not always the least expensive, but it's usually a pleasant trip."
Pros: "We were late leaving and missed our very tight connection at JFK. When we went to an agent we found we had been already rebooked on another flight through Detroit arriving 2.5 hours later than original. Our luggage was also rerouted to follow our flights and was there in Phoenix!"
Cons: "45 minutes is too tight a connection in JFK when you have to change terminals even if the flight were on time!"
Cons: "Must have been an older Delta jet. It had no entertainment. The wifi was poor."
Pros: "Crew was very helpful."
Cons: "This flight was delayed 5+ hours past its scheduled 12:15 departure due to mechanical issues with the plane. Delta was only able to offer a $50 travel voucher for this huge inconvenience."
Pros: "Overall, the flight was good. It actually wasn't a Delta flight but an Alaska Airlines flight."
Cons: "The aircraft was new model 737-800, very nice! Except the seats are a bit hard. Not good for a 5 hour flight. What really made me angry is I paid for a Delta flight. What difference does it make!? On long Delta flights, you get a meal (you pay for it in the cost of your ticket), but I was put on an Alaska Airlines flight where the meals are $7.50! I think that if Delta puts you on an affiliated airline, they should pick up the tab for the meal. Entertainment is via your smartphone. Don't have a smartphone, no problem, cough up $10 for a 2 bit tablet to watch a movie!"
Pros: "Not much, other than we got to Phienix in estimated time of flight, but about 15-20 minutes late."
Cons: "Evidently the plane scheduled for this route was downgraded, thus leading to enormous number of seat changes at the gate and a very crowded flight. Delta made their money at the expense of passengers once again."
Cons: "i don't like that we didn't have a personal tv."
Pros: "On time. Came around with water often."
Cons: "Just said we were being served a meal on my ticket and we didn't get one. Probably just as well since it was a turbulent take off and landing :-)"
Cons: "Never got to fly it. The prior flight was so delayed I missed it."
Pros: "Absolutely positively nothing."
Cons: "Everything literally!! Plane down for maintenance, rebooked four times and not willing to spend 48 hours in an airport due to incompetence. Never flying American Airlines. Will use Delta from now on."
Pros: "Nothing. I missed a family members funeral and no one at the airline cares. I ended up staying home because the flight was delayed 8 hours."
Cons: "Customer service didn't even try to find connecting flights and informed us that there were no other flights going to Phoenix. Which was a lie. I will never book with American again."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly"
Cons: "Seats were extremely uncomfortable, and hurt my back very much."
Pros: "Like the clean, comfortable seating. Great crew service and in time!"
Cons: "Take off was delayed for nearly an hour and the flight re-routed because of weather. We had scheduled plenty of time to make our connecting flight but we weren't updated on how much later we would be. This caused a lot of worry and stress not knowing when we would land or where our connecting gate would be. Fortunately the gates were next to one another and it all worked out. There were supposed to be usb charging connectors under the seat but I felt around for nearly 30 minutes and couldn't find them. Nobody could."
Cons: "You lost our bag and our original flight was shrunk. Our seats booted without warning. Late to our conference in Arizona."
Pros: "Staff did seem empathetic and offered substantial tips on how to find out about connecting flights. Also a promotional offer for the aa credit card had a sweetened points offer. I also liked the general structure of the plane made it easy to see if the lavatory was occupied or not."
Cons: "Plane pulled away from the gate knowing we were delayed (or so it seemed). Subsequent delays meant we were stuck on the plane and couldn't briefly disembark."
Cons: "No accommodation for delays and overnight stay in airport."
Pros: "Flew 1st class, everything excellent"
Cons: "Unable to sleep on the redeye from Seattle to Philly owing to a loud, constant alarm for the entire flight."
Pros: "It got us there on time"
Cons: "No inflight entertainment on the longer flight. Uhgggg."

Pros: "Pretty much everything! Great service, staff was friendly, courteous, smooth trip."
Cons: "Not a thing!"
Pros: "Entertainment system Leg room"
Cons: "Just one package of snacks for a 6 hour flight Delays going out of NYC"
Pros: "loved having a movie to pass the time. Super friendly attendants."
Pros: "just Ok for everything."
Pros: "I booked a codeshare ticket through Alaska Airlines reward program. I was worried I'd be shafted when it came to seats. Not so. I had the row to myself on both flights and just 2 rows shy of first class! Very impressed."
Pros: "The main crew person checking us in was very nice and attentive, tried to keep me posted on changes, and remained pleasant even though some were getting upset."
Cons: "flight was delayed, staff didn't update us so people were getting upset and irritable while waiting to hear. Then flight times changed without announcements, upsetting some."
Cons: "Mechanical difficulties in Dallas caused us to leaveat least 1.5 hours late. Got to Phoenix after my scheduled and all other flights to Spokane had departed. AA put me up in a hotel at the airport. Had to wait 35 minutes outside for a shuttle in 102 heat at 9:00 in the evening. Had to ask for a voucher for evening meal."
Pros: "The boarding process was good."
Cons: "Don't think the flight attendant should hang the trash bags in front of the passengers faces in the aisles to collect trash."
Pros: "Great flight, on time, seat upgrade"
Cons: "Chair wasn't that comfortable"
Pros: "Safe flight"
Cons: "Flight delayed more than one hour. Poor communications by pilots. No recognition by any crew members that it was Father's Day!!!"
Cons: "Having a fat person take up half your seat shouldn't be allowed. They should buy 2 tickets if they take up 2 seats"
Pros: "Ticket price was competitive."
Cons: "No individual entertainment systems on the seat backs--4.5 hours is a long time to be sitting on a plane with only an overhead screen showing whatever movie the airline chose. Also, charging $125 for a carry-on pet that has to stay under the seat AND having it count towards as one of my two "free" carry-ons is ridiculous. The flight was delayed because one of the crew was late."
Pros: "I like that on American you still get a complimentary cup of coffee, a bag of pretzels, and a normal sized seat. I'm OK paying for that after trying some of the budget airlines!"
Cons: "Wish they had a gluten free snack, still that's really not a big deal at all!"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and made my travel pleasant"
Pros: "Service was not only on time we landed early as oppose to me losing 1300 usd on my original flight to dallas for work Friday which I didn't make and cost me out of pocket"
Pros: "Liked the little compartment above the tray for electronic devices and the outlet below helped keep my grandsons tablet charged for the flight! Liked the headrest - had flaps that folded out for support if you needed a nap."
Pros: "I likes that I was able to pick my seat for the same price."
Pros: "Quick boarding and taxi. On and off the flight seemlessly."
Cons: "Delayed flight due to crew."
Pros: "Smooth sailing. Staff pleasant and professional. Orderly flight"
Pros: "quiet dark plane, gave blankets for overnight flight. Got placed in an exit seat free of charge."
Cons: "Crew member was 20 min late and they would not let us board until he got there. Ended up making the flight 30 minutes late and I almost missed my connection. They didn't update us saying he was on his way or anything, just that we were "still waiting." No entertainment was visible from my seat either."
Pros: "Nonstop flight"
Cons: "Nothing special about American. Boarding process doesn't make sense. People crowd the gate during boarding. Aircraft cabin is outdated. Would love to see, at minimum, power outlets for each seat. Cabin was frigid, does it need to be that cold?!"
Pros: "Updated interior. Comfortable chairs. Friendly staff. Pilot communicated well."
Cons: "No charging capabilities for devices. Limited food options."
Pros: "Friendliness of flight crew; entertainment choices."
Cons: "Food was poor for first class."
Cons: "The lack of leg space didn't know it was that bad."
Cons: "The flight was actually on their smaller airline I think Mesa. The plane was really small with no amenities."
Pros: "The flight was on"
Cons: "The flight was delayed and we had to wait in a long slow line, however , once we got to desk , the agent was very nice and we had already been rebooked on an Alaska flight. The resolution was acceptable but it made for a 12 hour travel day instead of a 4 hour travel day."
Cons: "They boarded group 1 all at once. I was group 2. They boarded all of us all at once. It was a cluster!. I haven't flew in 6 years. But when I did they boarded by so many rows. Not all at once . Boarding was horrible. It was like a cattle drive."
Cons: "I'm not sure why I paid Alaska Airlines, and received confirmation emails from Alaska Airlines, but whenever I went to check in for my flights Alaska Airlines couldn't do anything for me. Instead all they did was tell me to go to American Airlines if I wanted help. I gave you my money Alaska Air.. how about you help me?"
Pros: "The crew was friendly. The pilot told us what landmarks we were flying over as well as weather, altitude updates and arrival times."
Pros: "The captain of the plane did a phenomenonal job communicating with the passengers on board. He provided us information on location, altitude, and let us know when to expect turbulence which I thought was great, as many do not communicate much with the passengers. Also the plane was in good conditions and was comfortable."
Pros: "the crew was nice but had no control over the flights that were canceled"
Cons: "the flight to PHX was delayed then canceled then they had to send us from Long Beach Airport to LAX in a old stinky van with a driver that did not know his way. Then the flight was delayed until 1am so I did not get into Charlotte until 9am. that made me missed my meeting. then on our trip home we sat in the PHX airport for 12 hrs because we had flights canceled and delayed then canceled again we got to long beach airport at 630 pm that is 8 hrs later than we were to arrived."
Cons: "My seat was not worth an extra $50. Sat next to a lady with a stinky dog in her lap that was probably a little too big for lap."
Pros: "Good flight, love frontier"
Pros: "Overly expensive for an uncomfortable flight"
Cons: "Extra charges, couldn't check in online without paying $45 and worst customer service EVER!"
Cons: "The breaks failed on the plane so we had to deplane at the gate. They couldn't get us out until late the next day so I had to cancel my trip."
Pros: "Timely as expected"
Pros: "I sat in row 3 and had a lot of leg room. I am 6' 2" and usually have 0 leg room in most coach seating."
Cons: "There were no free snacks/soft drinks available."
Cons: "No emailed itinerary or checkin notification - I blame Kayak for this (it seems to happen whenever I book through Kayak) and will no longer book flights through Kayak. Frontier sucks, but you already know that going in so you get what you expect."
Cons: "The announcement speakers at Seattle gate B15 were too quiet to hear what she was saying. I paid for a seat thinking that I would have peace during my flight but that didn't happen. I had the window seat but the little girl who's mom put her in the seat threw a big temper tantrum when I wanted the seat that I had paid for. So i let her have it. Then, when I got to phoenix and picked up my one checked bag, it was damaged. The charge for every single item is ridiculous. I would much rather pay one fee and be done. I will never fly Frontier ever again. The flight to and from my destination was horrible."
Cons: "Our flight was about an hour delayed, though the front desk people would not give people any information on the delay. The plane itself was dirty with trash, cups, and crumbs."
Pros: "STAFF MEMBERS WERE GREAT,!"
Cons: "IT IS RIDICULOUS THE RATE THAT YOU CHARGE FOR LUGGAGE I WILL NOT FLY WITH FRONTIER AGAIN I RATHER PAY A HIGHER PRICE AND HAVE EVERYTHING INCLUDED OTHER THAN HAVING TO FIGURE OUT WHAT MY EXPENSE AT THE COUNTER WILL BE. ALSO YOU SELL EVERYTHING AT LEASE ON OTHER AIRLINES WE GET A DRINK WITHOUT HAVING TO WHIP OUT A CREDIT CARD."
Cons: "They say low fares done right but my "cheap" flight turned out to cost me over double what it should have with their extra cost for everything! And I mean for EVERYTHING. Will never fly frontier again!"
Pros: "Nothing the plane never came."
Cons: "If you're in the mood to arrive at the airport at 5 o'clock in the morning and then circle jerk for 12 hours only for them to tell you at the end of the day that they cancelled the flight due to too many customers demanding a refund… Feel free to fly Frontier. They delayed the flight hour by hour keeping us hopeful all day. Never fly with frontier. Book with kayak, but not for Frontier, unless blowing a whole day in the airport is your thing. They have ZERO loyalty to their customers and don't think for a second that they will accommodate you for the return value of the flight to book another flight the next day. They will refund the 3-month-in-advance cost of $160, but that $320 ticket the next day will be on you."
Cons: "Will not use frontier again, I had no idea they didn't cover even a carry on. Also, couldn't lay my head down on the tray in front of me on the plane, it was way too short and way too low."
Pros: "Excellent flight crew! All very helpful and attentive. Head steward had a wonderful sense of humor that eased long flight takeoff delay and kept us all chuckling and smiling at various points of flight."
Cons: "Extremely uncomfortable seats. After about an hour my legs and back were aching and I couldn't get in a comfortable position. Too hard and not enough padding. A non-alcoholic beverage should be a "gratis" show of hospitality on any multi-hour flight. How tight can you get?"
Pros: "On Time"
Cons: "Seats not comfortable......And charges for baggage and seats....Misleading advertising...Check in people late to open counter in AM.. Will avoid Frontier.."
Cons: "and train employees better. Their fees are very unusual and the PHX staff did not inform me of the fees but on my way back the Seattle employees did in a very rude manner. They were also rude to other people on my flight that were caught unaware of the strange fees."
Pros: "Leg room! Tons of leg room! The most i have ever seen even in Transatlantic flights, it was amazing."
Cons: "The seats are pretty horribly uncomfortable. About one step above plastic."
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."
Pros: "Fiight itself was ok"
Cons: "I did not like out of the two tickets I did buy I had to pay an additional $104.00 for seating and baggage"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "The ticket price is bare bone, Eerything is at extra cost. Even carry on bag casts extra. I am surprised that the toilet is free!"
Cons: "Seats a bit hard and didn't recline."
Pros: "The airline niceled and dimes you to death. My luggage charges were almost as much as the airfare. I will never ever fly Frontier again. The trip sucked!"
Pros: "At least this flight was only 15 min late!!"
Cons: "Told to arrive early only to show up and realize he bag check counter is unattended. A sign states it will open 2 hours prior to boarding. Staff shows up late then has to log on to computers and get ready. Once we check bags, lines are so long at security we are diverted to different gates. Worst airline I have ever used."
Pros: "Flight price great. $40. For my bag not good. I wasn't aware water wouldn't be provided"
Cons: "Charging for carry on bags - charging for drinks -"
Pros: "The crew was great. The tickets were a good price."
Cons: "Paying for carryon. Paying for seats The seats were like sitting on bleachers. They don't reqcline. You have no arm room. Anything else? Oh yes you pay for your drinks. Even water."
Pros: "They were on time or early."
Cons: "I really don't like buying a plan ticket with my family and then finding out the only way to sit together is to pay almost 10-20% more at the gate for a special seat. Also can't believe planes of this size actually have a no recline seat. That's right you have pay extra to recline."
Pros: "The ticket price before all of the additional fees"
Cons: "Baggage fees, seats didn't recline, fees if you want to choose a seat. Fees for baggage and seats should be included in the ticket price."
Cons: "The customer service was awful, representatives at check-in counter and gates were rude and unfriendly. Flight attendants were inattentive. Fees and charges for everything, even water!! Seats felt like a park bench, and no leg room whatsoever to speak of unless you paid extra for it! Have never had such an uncomfortable and unpleasant traveling experience. Will never choose this airline again, and definitely will not be recommending it to friends or family, or anyone for that matter."
Cons: "Flight leaving Milwaukee was delayed due to technical problems. Got on the plane an hour late, sat on the plane for over an hour, had to get off the plane and wait in the terminal for 2 hours therefore missed my connecting flight and have not arrived at my final destination. There was nothing offered for the trouble or inconenience (snacks, drinks, etc.). I had to miss an important meeting and never want to fly Frontier again."
Cons: "I never review things but good God this airline is horrid. They charge $40 for carry-ons. They also have some of the meanest desk workers I've ever dealt with. Never going to fly them again. Spend the 60 bucks on a better airline because you're going to pay that in baggage fees on Frontier anyways."
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "Almost everything. Was charged for everything which made the price of a seemingly inexpensive ticket, about the same as most other airlines. Terribly uncomfortable seats."
Cons: "Baggage fees equal to ticket price"
Pros: "Liked the cheap fare of the flight. But otherwise, not much else is good."
Cons: "With the average height of me and my partner traveling being 6'4", we didn't enjoy being in coach for this long flight in uncomfortable seats and very little legroom. But you get what you pay for, so now we know! Paying for a carry-on is pretty ridiculous as well."
Pros: "Flight was on time, boarding was quick."
Cons: "They charged to pick seating, for carry-ons, and for beverages on the flight. The money I "saved" compared to other airlines, I ended up probably spending more due to the additional charges."
Pros: "the only thing I liked was the cost."
Cons: "$40 for carry on bags..$30 to check in...Seriously???? This must be the way to make up for the cheep tickets...And what is the extra charge for a seat???? Never heard of this on any other airline. I have one more Frontier flight in afew weeks and this will be the last. I am going back to Alaska or Hawaiian..cost is more, but much better service. Cost for one coffee and snack $4.49...snacks $2.99 soft drinks $1.99 Is Frontier filling bankruptcy???? problems with management????"
Pros: "Cheap tickets"
Cons: "Extra charges every step of the way, seats were too cramped to sleep on the red eye flight."
Pros: "Only the price it was cheaper than other airlines"
Cons: "1. The security now a days has long lines and I get to the airport early but can't drop my luggage ,no one was at counter until before 2 hr for departure 2. Unlike other airlines no free snack during the flight 3. Charged for every single thing , seat , food , snack , carry on ...."
Cons: "the flight was delayed and then cancelled for equipment. no one from frontier addressed any passengers at the gate until after the flight crew had mentioned the cracked windshield and "what the hell are we going to do for 24 hours." eventually, after an hour and a half, the unhelpful staff gave out pre-printed snips of paper with outdated instructions on who to call and how to rebook or ask for a refund. after a fifteen minute phone call they said they'd cancel payment and that it would take 5-7 days, so I had to cancel my trip."
Pros: "Nothing. This is the first and last time I will fly frontier."
Pros: "everything was great"
Pros: "Very friendly and helpful staff. Smiles all around the whole flight!"
Cons: "45$ for my carry which fit under my seat. Non reclining chairs. Incredibly turbulant last hour of the ride."
Cons: "There was very little cushioning on the seats and they did not recline at all. They don't tell you during booking or at check in about the added fee for carry on luggage. Luckily I had none but about 15 people had to pay at the gate. The cost for your carry on and checked bag fee, you could of afforded a nicer airline that doesn't charge for that."
Pros: "Plane, workers, quick baggage claim"
Cons: "No perks unless you pay extra for them. No WiFi on plane."
Pros: "Speedy boarding and fast flight, crew was ok."
Cons: "Charged for one bag, charged for soda and chips on plane."
Pros: "people were friendly and it was on time."
Cons: "wish seats reclined."
Pros: "Smooth landing and nice Flight Attendants."
Cons: "Charged for carry-on. Charged $35 for checked bag. No gate agents at the check-in counter for one hour. Frontier considers it normal to provide bad customer service."
Pros: "Good service"
Pros: "Non- Stop flight"
Cons: "6 hour 15 minute delay due to a mechanical problem. I learned that the problem was a broken seatbelt. I later learned that this plane was in the hanger in Chicago since the previous night. I received a $100 voucher for the inconvenience. I have to use the voucher in 90 days. Since I am not a frequent flyer this is no use to me,it should be extended to one year."
Pros: "Nice crew. Smooth process overall."
Cons: "Seats were tolerable for a short flight but not for much longer."
Cons: "Small seats"
Pros: "Boarding went quickly, and the flight was smooth. Flight attendants were efficient."
Cons: "The seats are not particularly comfortable, but I did manage to sleep for most of the flight."
Cons: "Every thing"
Pros: "Foot room"
Cons: "No internet,buy larger seats and don't get them"
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: "On time departure, efficiency of crew, shorter flight times than expected."
Cons: "Seats don't recline, no in-flight beverage or entertainment services."
Cons: "I would never use spirit again. Pay for your carry on in so abusive and inconvenient and the price is ridiculous. The service is poor. Never again"
Pros: "Great crew with a sense of humor to go along with the service"
Cons: "They charge for everything. Charged as much for a flight change as a one-way return flight would have been."
Pros: "Liked the crew - polite and sense of humor"
Cons: "having to buy snacks"
Cons: "One checked bag within the weight limit and a carry on doubled the price of my ticket..."
Pros: "Captain Daniels"
Cons: "Everything else"
Pros: "Check in was quick. We were given option to upgrade seat to exit row which we accepted for more leg room. Lower ticket cost definitely gets offset by having to pay for seat selection and baggage fees."
Cons: "Flight was delayed. Then moved back to original time which made us scramble. Then we ended up waiting because flight was delayed again. There is also very little info in advance as to what the gate or even the terminal are going to be."
Cons: "The baggage fees are ridiculous. You have to pay to select your seat andthey do not offer a complimentary beverage even on a flight that is over 4 hours."
Cons: "Will never get on one of their planes again. It may seem like a great deal until they start charging you for everything! And their service is subpar and their employees are disinterested at best."
Pros: "Crew kind of rude... you have to pay for a carry on 50$ ..."
Pros: "Price, crew, check in"
Cons: "When arrived I had to pay 10 dollars to print my boarding pass. I then had to pay $50 dollars to check my bag. I went to my gate and my flight was delayed. Not a big issue it was just delayed by 45 min. Once we boarded we sat there for about 30 to 40 min just to be told the pilot never showed. So they pulled us off the plane. We were then told that they had another pilot coming but it's going to be 2 hours. I was delayed 4 hours not beacuse of weather or plain issue but beacuse the airline could not keep there schedules in order. How did they not know a pilot was not going to show. How annoying it was to load on a plane to be pulled off again and loaded on again. Worst flight I have ever had and after all that they did not provide a complementary drink or even offer to refund my bag check beacuse of the huge mistake on thee behalf."
Pros: "The timetable given on my boarding pass was helpful. Arriving at airport, getting through security,etc."
Cons: "Payment for everything. Didn't feel like I was getting a great deal on cost to begin with. Was just not ready for the sarcastic tone to your flight staff. Some around me laughed at her tone others felt she was just plain rude. Just not sure this experience is something I'd do again."
Pros: "No frills, comfortable flight, clean cabin"
Cons: "LONG delays!"
Cons: "I felt like there were hidden fees, I booked on kayak and did not realize I would be charged extra to bring any luggage or pick a seat or even have a drink of water, the plane was late, seats were uncomfortable, tray table was a joke, flight attendants were not funny and lackadaisical"
Cons: "I WILL NEVER TRAVEL WITH, NOR PURCHASE A TICKET FROM SPIRIT AIRLINES!!"
Pros: "Fast and convenient. Everything was on time and worked well."
Cons: "I wasn't aware of how little was included with you ticket. The seats weren't comfortable or adjustable. The plane was hot and stuffy."
Cons: "Charging $35 to carry a bag into a plane. Seriously. No customer service, no anything. I've gone on cheap flights before, these guys stripped waaay too much out."
Pros: "I had the entire role of seats to myself on my return flight from LA to Seattle"
Cons: "The amount of space to stretch out and sleep"
Pros: "The price of the flight"
Cons: "All the surprises about the cost it to bring the luggage on the plane and the fact that my first flight was cancelled and nobody offered me anything for a hotel room for an extra nigh t"
Pros: "Early morning flight. Nobody on flight. Seemed like it was 10-15 years ago with no traffic."
Cons: "Nothing it was wonderful !!!"
Cons: "TICKETS ARE CHEAP FOR A REASON.. FLIGHT GOT DELAYED A HOUR BACK. AS SOON AS WE GET TO VEGAS OUR PILOT TELLS US THAT ITS NOT SAFE TO LAND AND HES GOING TO WAIT TIL ITS SAFE WHICH IS UNDERSTANDABLE BUT HE DECIDED TO FLY AROUND IN CIRCLES FOR 30 MINUTES. AFTER THAT HE SAID IT STILL WASNT SAFE AND WE LANDED IN LA INSTEAD OF LAS VEGAS. 4 HRS LATE ON ARRIVAL TO LAS VEGAS, AND ON TOP OF ALL THE FUCKERY, U DONT GET ANY COMPLIMENTARY SNACKS OR WATER. AND IF U DONT PAY FOR YOUR BAGS ONLINE THEY'LL HIT U OVER THE HEAD WITH A 60-100 TAB JUS FOR ONE BAG."
Cons: "Crappy airline."
Pros: "Very good for a bare bones exoerience"
Cons: "Flight out was fairly empty so the seats seemed incredibly roomy. Realized on the flight home that we must have been given better seats with much more room in the front of the plane but for a short flight-not bad at all."
Cons: "50$ each way for a carry on when the whole round trip was 120!!!"
Pros: "Very organized"
Cons: "Can't complain about anything it was a great value and easy flight that was on time both trips."
Cons: "Charging $55 for a carry-on in order to make your tickets appear cheaper on sites like Kayak.com is a total scam."
Pros: "Flight was fast."
Cons: "Extremely unprofessional staff from the moment I walked up to the gate to leave Los Angeles Friday morning, to the moment I returned Monday night. I didn't think there was actually such thing as a "bad airline" until I flew Spirit. I'm sure there are plenty of complaints for little things, but this airline was truly bothersome and very uncomfortable, especially when the airplane was about land and one a male flight attendant began flicking the lights and laughed after. No airline should treat guests in such a way."
Pros: "Our flight attendants were great and very attentive. One in particular was amusing and she cracked us up."
Cons: "Not having a carry-on in addition to a personal item is totally uncool. Spirit is not fooling us into thinking their "non-inclusive" policy for things like food and drinks is saving us money. Paying to check luggage both ways because WHO CAN CRAM EVERYTHING THEY NEED INTO THEIR PURSE?? = paying as much or more for airfare and not getting any peanuts. We're not that stupid. ALSO, we had THE WORST turbulence any of us have ever experienced and not one person came on to say anything about it, leading us to wonder if it wasn't just turbulence. They should have reassured us. When they did come on it was to offer us their credit card. The entire cabin erupted with "OH HELL NO!" Not well done."
Cons: "This airline charges for checked AND carryon bags... making the total cost of the trip more expensive than a much nicer airline. They are also not TSA Pre check eligible and NONE of this is mentioned when booking the flight. The seats don't recline and overall the experience was awful. I will never fly with them again."
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "Baggage fees"
Cons: "I missed the 45 min check-in deadline and was not able to get on the flight. The flight left at 11:15 and I arrived at 10:33. I will never pick Spirit airlines again. I am going to miss seeing my 57yr old mother graduate from college."
Pros: "Bag check, and seating. Lots of space for carry ons"
Cons: "Flight Attendants seemed to be very unhappy"
Pros: "Hassle free, smooth trip."
Cons: "A bit uncomfortable and packed/tight."
Cons: "Charging for carry on, charging to select a seat, water is not to be given away (even to children during a 2 hour delay) what more can be said."
Cons: "Was not on time to Phoenix."
Pros: "Offer a good price for the flight"
Cons: "Don't like that you have to pay for everything and nothing is said about that through kayak. Paying $55 for a checked bag is ridiculous and almost as much as the flight."
Cons: "First, the gate swited twice. Flight was delayed 30 minutes. Plus, I paid to sit in the 4th row, but the 3rd row was empty. So, the flight attendant let people who didn't pay extra for those seats, move all the up from the back of plane. Seriously? Why did I have to pay then? Should I then be entitled to a refund since other people sat there for free?"
Pros: "The flight was wonderful. My seat was comfortable. Flt crew was very good."
Pros: "The price,"
Cons: "I missed my flight and the rep at the ticket desk did not help me board when he could of led me to board."
Pros: "Nothing. Flight was cancelled. That was just the beginning of a travel nightmare. I can't believe Kayak compromises their reputation by representing a shoddy, sham of a business like Spirit."
Cons: "Cancelled flight at the very last minute because of lack of crew. Not enough staff to accommodate travellers trying to rebook flights. Inept and apathetic staff who were obviously resigned to the fact that Spirit is a substandard airline There was miscommunication and lack of communication in organizing travelers which caused multiple altercations between upset travelers. It was a very disturbing experience. My rebooking took an hour because the staff member didn't know how to rebook! The 'Supervisor' who was at the next desk, was SLOWLY checking bags for other customers and did not help AT ALL. I suggested that he switch places with my agent. He ignored me competely. Attempts to call Spirit resulted in multiple auto transfers and ultimately an intentional auto cut off. I was rebooked on United. When I checked in at their desk, they told me that all the other transferred Spirit customers before me had been sent back to the Spirit Desk because their transfers had not gone through. I have been warned about Spirit. Now I would warn anyone considering Spirit. If it goes right, you're ok. If not, get ready for a travel nightmare. No one needs this kind of abuse."
Cons: "Paid 100.00 for 2 bags because the spirit site rejected my checking them in the nite before"
