Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "The boarding got very confusing"
Pros: "On my way back home I noticed that there was ONE seat that was empty in First Class as I boarded the plane. I asked the flight attendant about it and she said that I would have to go back up to the ticket agent to inquire there. So I did, and I was told when I walked back up the ramp to that kiosk that the ticked agent had just Closed The Flight. So, the other lady who was standing right there said that she had to escort a minor on to the flight and that she would accompany me back to the airplane and see if she could help. She did, and when we got back to hand off the minor to the flight crew she then inquired about that seat. It was agreed that the seat was going to be vacant, and since I am a 6' 1", 250 pound man, they all thought it would be a nice thing to allow me to sit in that first class seat at no extra charge! Wow!! What a difference that made on the 4 hour flight! Thank You Alaska Airlines for helping me out and hooking me up! I will remember that when I am booking my next trip!!"
Pros: "I’m 6’4”, much better legroom than most."

Pros: "Poor service overall. Seats were just like in the economy area, not much different."
Cons: "Better service"
Cons: "We PAID $30/each to check 2 bags, both ways, so $120 total. Then at the gate, BOTH WAYS, Delta Gate Reps allowed people to check bags for FREE, & pick up at bag claim, just like WE PAID TO DO. NO MORE DELTA FOR US!"
Cons: "Delta Comfort isn’t so comfortable. Seats are too skinny."
Cons: "The website could work for starters"
Pros: "The entire flight was excellent, on time, great friendly crew, edible food, movies and options were great, perfect in every way. It was a little chaotic at flight loading on extra security, but I assume it could have something to do with it being on 9/11 and it was ultimately bound for NYC."
Cons: "I honestly cannot think of anything."
Pros: "Prompt boarding and departure."
Cons: "Refreshments and up to date airplane. Plane seem outdated and very loud. Flight attendants could use a friendlier demeanor"
Cons: "Being on time."
Cons: "Crew unfriendly."
Pros: "They were great & super friendly!!"
Pros: "Crew was great. Planes with built in TV was even better."

Pros: "The crew was professional and courteous, one of the best crews we had experienced onboard Delta."
Cons: "Cleaner bathroom"
Cons: "Everything. Flight got delayed, luggage was sent before i boarded the plane. Terrible service of Delta. Never again using Delta or going to Atlanta. Wasted two days already from my vacation..."

Cons: "Everything else"
Pros: "No entertainment and no food other than snacks."
Pros: "Easy boarding, helpful crew, on time, informative pilot"
Cons: "Fewer and fewer choices for beverage and snack"
Pros: "The service and snack selection is better than the other large US carriers. Delta studio is a decent replacement for the lack of PTVs on these planes."
Cons: "Delta offers a decent product on most of their fleet but the 717 or MD-88/90 can be extremely loud at the back of the plane. You better bring ear plugs or noise cancelling headphones and learn to read the flight attendants lips."
Pros: "Although the flight was delayed, when it was time to board and take off, this was extremely efficient."
Cons: "Delayed flight. However, I know this sometimes out ot the airlines control."
Pros: "I told the crew I had a short connection time at a far terminal and I was worried because my seat was in the rear of the aircraft and they were able to move me up closer to the front to ensure I got off the aircraft quickly to make my next flight. That was amazing."
Pros: "Kenyatta Cheatham, our flight attendant was absolutely delightful! She made my flight enjoyable with her beautiful smile. She clearly loves her job!"
Pros: "Great trips notifications"
Cons: "Barking dogs. 4 around us! Middle seat."
Pros: "Crew was great, helped us board fast after a delayed arrival and to avoid needing a crew change (FAA Regs)."
Cons: "Plane was a D-90? The plane was very loud with vibration noise at very high decibels during the whole flight. Because of the extended flight (3 1/2 hours in the air) due to a storm system, they should have offered more food to travelers."
Cons: "Flight was delayed ... wish I had received text notice instead of email so I could have enjoyed the extra hours of vacation instead of sitting at airport."
Pros: "Newer plane with entertainment"

Pros: "Entertainment in top notch... stewards were very pleasants"

Pros: "Movie helped to pass the time this was the longest flight ever I was glad when it was over"
Cons: "I have nothing to complain about"
Cons: "The person sitting next to me what is not able to fit in their seat, therefore, he filled his seat and half of my seat. I don't think it's fair that I paid for a full seat and only was able to use half of my seat. I was incredibly uncomfortable the entire flight. I was pressed up against the window and against the stranger passenger that I did not know. By the end of the flight, my shirt and my pants are soaked with sweat, it was not my sweat."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and had great humor."
Cons: "Mechanical failure had to switch planes an hour and 20 minutes late"
Pros: "I liked the WiFi and Movies. The flight crew was wonderful making a stressful retreat from Hurricane Irma a little better"

Cons: "One of my bags went to Santa Fe"

Pros: "Excellent infotainment system"
Cons: "45 min queue to take-off"

Pros: "The flight was good, but the flight attendants were friendly and fun making it better than usual."
Pros: "Overall flight experience was excellent - no delays!"
Cons: "As always, Delta has very little room to store anything in pullback seat back of seat in front of passenger seat."
Pros: "Everyone was very polite"
Cons: "Too many seats hadn't been aside. It was an unnecessary wait in line for about 20 people to get their seat assignments."
Pros: "The pilot was funny and flight crew was friendly."
Cons: "What I didn't like was out of their control!"
Cons: "No entertainment for the whole 5 hr flight. Very bad"
Pros: "Great flight from tampa, everything was perfect"
Pros: "Everything was fine Food entertainment"
Cons: "Because the flight was delayed a whole day and night I was exhausted. I have been trying to get the $200 delayed trip rebate. I was given no instructions on how to do this finally after speaking to a travel agent I got a phone numbers I could call. Called and was told what web sight to go to. Filled in still waiting for a reply a day later. Not happy. I dout that this write up will get any response. The"
Pros: "Stewardess was great"
Cons: "No recline, no window, no hope. Yet there were other empty better seats!"
Pros: "Flight time was short. boarding was organized."
Cons: "No refreshments. (Turbulent weather) makes sense, it felt like there were Windows where they could have offered some water."
Cons: "Delayed flight"
Cons: "Business class - never offered food or drink for entire flight."
Cons: "The pilot on this flight was amazing!"
Pros: "The seat was So so"
Cons: "My food was cold had to send it back"
Cons: "The boarding process at the gate was brutal and very disorganized and the persons working for American Airlines were overwhelmed and announcements relating to the delay were very confusing"
Pros: "Both flight were on time and the crews were delightful"
Pros: "Flight cancelled after multiple delays. Huge line with single agent to rebook everyone"
Pros: "Friendly attentive crew"
Cons: "The only entertainment was streaming movies via your own device. Not the end of the world but most people have come to expect having personal video monitors. Delta is adding them but AA is taking away."
Pros: "Leg room in coach"
Cons: "No movie selection"
Pros: "Things went as they should have got a 2 hour flight."
Cons: "The inside of the plane around the air vents definitely could use some cleaning."
Pros: "I upgraded to a premium seat I was assigned a seat in the middle very uncomfortable when there were empty seats three rows ahead should not have been a problem"
Pros: "Crew was great. No electrical outlets, wntertainment was mediocre. This was an old 747 that needs an update."
Pros: "Ease of check in"
Cons: "DIdnt understand why a seat as not assigned. A few people had the same issue and the gate agent suggested we may not get seats. Very stressful given he need to make an international connection. Gate service was not available early enough."
Pros: "The dinner was good"
Cons: "All the flight attendants were hanging out in the back. Socializing like we were invisible. They seemed to prioritize one another over the passengers. It felt a little odd."
Pros: "Crew made a special effort to find me a nondairy meal (which I had neglected to request)."
Cons: "Web page dysfunction meant we couldn't sign up for wifi. The page asked me to set security questions but the pulldown for the questions had no options to select from. I tried on multiple devices/browsers."
Pros: "Not exceptional"
Cons: "Not much room for moving around but really fast"
Pros: "Everything was fine"
Cons: "The trip was good"
Pros: "The flights were on time and the staff was very friendly."
Pros: "Legroom, interactive lcd screens on seat headrests. Would fly again, affordable as well."
Pros: "Decent boarding group, same snacks, same flight attendants (who were very nice)"
Cons: "My only gripe is that paying for an assigned seat is only allowed 48 hours before takeoff and costs at least $30, twice what Spirit charges to allow you to select a seat during booking, so it is worse. No one watched us to ensure that we didn’t use the overhead bins (a stipulation of the fare) but we did comply anyway. We chose to take our chances and were assigned seats at the gate 16 rows apart and both in the middle seat."
Pros: "FUE OPERADO POR AMERICAN AIRLINES Y EL VUELO DESDE TAMPA DESPEGO TARDE Y PERDIMOS LA CONEXION A JAPON TODO EL DIA EN EL AEROPUERTO SOLO HASTA EL DIA 21 VAMOS A SALIR DE LOS ANGELES A TOKIO SI TENEMOS ALGO DE SUERTE MUY MALO EN VERDAD NOS ENTIMOS ENGAÑADOS"
Pros: "Quiet clean bathroom good layover time"
Pros: "If you are not in first class, they treat you like dirt."
Cons: "I saw the whole plane packed in the back with 6 people in a row, when the middle of the plane has plenty of empty seats. It seems that American Airlines will pack people who don't pay for choice of seats in the back. Distasteful practice."
Pros: "Very friendly staff, on time, most of all very comfortable."
Cons: "The Oppurtunity that could improve is the boarding in plane to have passengers board in groups."
Cons: "significant delay in boarding; return to terminal to remove a drunk. Result was missed connection at DFW to London, resulting in missed connection to Munich; resulting in loss of my checked luggage"
Pros: "The flight arrived early which was nice. But that's the only good thing about this flight."
Cons: "From checking my bag to leaving the plane in Dallas, I felt like AA employees thought passengers were just in the way. It was almost as if the flight attendants were traveling to Dallas and they happened to have to take care of passengers along the way. There were very few smiles, hellos, or how can I help you. It was almost always and grunt and what do you want? The personal device entertainment was very buggy. the movie I tried to watch kept skipping, like on old scratched CD."
Pros: "American airline flight to Paris was great"
Pros: "Snacks and entertainment"
Pros: "The planes were comfortable."
Cons: "I didn't get a boarding pass for my third flight."
Cons: "Boarding took forever and I'm a Premium passenger."
Pros: "It was excellent!"
Pros: "It was fine"
Cons: "It was a full flight, but I cannot complain"
Pros: "Ticket agents at all airports were helpful and very considerate."
Cons: "We were not able to print our boarding passes the day before as expected per the website and purchase docs for the tickets, despite providing passport numbers (several times) and Global Entry registrations. Had to go to a ticket desk at first departure and third departure points to have them printed, with no explanations given. Also not allowed to choose our seats for the third leg. Food was barely edible. Paid extra for roomier seats on one leg, making it more comfortable, but were extremely tight on another leg which had many empty seats scattered throughout the cabin. Cabin attendants seemed more interested in pushing items that generated revenue than providing the ones that came with the ticket (which is never cheap to begin with)."
Pros: "It was all good.it was"
Pros: "Slept very well in business. Great crew!"
Pros: "Got me to destination, I slept the whole way."
Cons: "Delayed for about 15 minutes on arrival, something about maintenance and the entry door."
Pros: "The friendly personal"
Pros: "In seat entertainment"
Cons: "Boarding sequence"
Cons: "Self check-in staff at Seattle was not that helpful."
Cons: "A guy passed out prior to boarding, then they put him on the flight. We push back from the gate and start the engines and the guy passes out again. Now we are delayed 35 minutes. Why did they put someone one the flight that was clearly sick before he ever boarded then you make everyone miss their connection in Dallas. We got to the gate for our connecting flight 9 minutes before the pushed back from the ramp and they would not let us on??? WTF poor customer service!! Fly southwest from now on!"
Pros: "Small seats, no consideration for disabled travelers. Pretzels suck. One 30 min tv show on 2.5 hour flight. No bathroom for handicap. Cheap airfare is the only reason I fly American. One attendant asked me, with attitude, if I was going to get off the plane...before realizing I can't physically walk. Her face turned white as a ghost when she realized what she had said and how she had said it."
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "I like the comfort and the cheap prices of the fear rates"
Cons: "Poor cew service"
Pros: "Crew was nice. Entertainment on my second leg was good"
Cons: "My flight was delayed and I only made my connecting flight by sprinting (literally sprinting) to my gate. I think a more concerted effort could have been made by crew to identify those passengers with quick connections (because of the delay) to make sure we could depart first. The captain did make a plea for people to be considerate of those who might have close connections, but nobody paid any attention to that."
Cons: "Seats not enough padding"
Cons: "Sore lower back from the seat."
Cons: "I had two hour for connecting flight on quatr airways but the flight from St. Louis left St. Louis at 335 pm instead of 2pm. When I got of flight in Dallas they were already paging me overhead as a last call for quatr airways."
Cons: "Mild turbulence"
Pros: "Really nice crew, I loved my seat assignment, Swift and easy boarding."
Cons: "Comfier seats"
Cons: "3 lbs over on luggage wasn’t an issue leaving but return made big deal and said she gets audited and can be a couple of lbs overweight. Wanted $75. So we threw away some liquids and dispersed some closed into carryons. Really stupid. Seats super small uncomfortable always have their hand out for payment for everything. Not eager to fly frontier ever again."
Cons: "Plane was scheduled to depart at 8:20 pm it was then delayed until 8:58 pm due to weather. We all boarded the plane and were ready for take off when a maintenance issue was discovered. We all deplaned and we’re told we would be put on a new plane arriving from Seattle set to depart at 11:30 pm. This departure time was delayed until 1:35 am and then 2:35 am because the captain had timed out and we would need to wait for a new pilot. Also due to the first delay everything was coded as “weather” and customer service was unable to give hotel rooms. This miscommunication between corporate and passengers and the late night created lots of frustration. Instead of being helpful or honest customer service called security on the disgruntled passengers. I heard no threats of violence just elevated voices. At midnight Frontier began handing out meal vouchers (15 dollars to McDonald’s) as a way to increase morale. I finally gave up and requested a refund, got a hotel, and a new flight on a different airline (all Frontier flights the next day were sold out). When I asked what would happen to my checked luggage they said it would be sent to Dallas (my destination) or I could pay for it to be sent back to Denver. The flight and my luggage arrived in Dallas at 5:30 am. Paid $400 for Southwest flight the next day (flying into different Dallas airport away from my parked car and luggage) just for the guaranteed service."
Cons: "From check in to boarding and then flight all were fantastic. We were traveling with 2 kids as well under 3"
Cons: "A little cramped and you should be more upfront about a dumb fee of $45 for a carry on. I thought I was getting a good deal on a flight but I guess I was wrong. I will probably fly with an airline that doesn’t charge you for something that should be free from now on"
Cons: "Will not be using. Hidden charges doe luggage. No complimentary drinks. Filthy conditions. Will not be using frontier ever again."
Cons: "The small seats and no leg room"
Pros: "Service was fast and friendly and very efficient!!"
Cons: "Got to airport, showed flight wasl on time. Get to gate find out flight delayed from screen behind boarding gate. All official Frontier sites say on time. Finally after about an hour all official screens show flight delayed 4 hours. (initial delay was 6). 2 hours after that a person from Frontier came to our gate. explained that plane was replaced in Cleveland. They did give us 10,oo vouchers but by that time we all had pretty much eaten."
Pros: "The counter attendant was helpful to find another flight."
Cons: "The delays that are caused by the very slow computers at the ticket counters. I did not like that I had to 'somehow' get to Orlando to get into the next flight to NJ. Even though I arrived 1 hr before the flight."
Pros: "Checking in was quick."
Cons: "Cramped seating. You didn't tell us about the extra charge on the carry on and if you did it was too hidden."
Cons: "no amenities"
Cons: "On both flights, the airplane wobbled during takeoff - significantly more than any other flight I've been on. Either the pilot was less skilled or the plane itself was just flimsier. Once we were in the air it was fine though."
Pros: "Got to destination early."
Cons: "Noisy airplane and flight."
Pros: "Flights were on time"
Cons: "Nickel and dime you to death."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Plane was 1.5 hours late. Seats are terrible. Charge for everything."
Pros: "Very roomy cabin"
Cons: "Absence of basic amenities like water"
Pros: "Non-stop. Cre was polite."
Cons: "Up charges for everything. Baggage. Seat assignment. Penalized for not selecting up grade seat to seat with tiny arm rests, non-reclining, teenie-tiny tray table that had no use at all. Seat very uncomfortable for 2.5 hour flight. Just too cattle car-ish. With all fees they charge, i'd been better off on southwest. Also, on-line check in was a real hassle and I have a FFN with Frontier."
Pros: "I liked that it was cheap"
Cons: "Very tiny airplane, so hot it would make You pop. Would have appreciated a status update. You do get what you pay for"
Cons: "Flight was scheduled to depart at 9:20 PM on the 24th. On way to airport, I was advised of a 5 hour delay. At that point I returned home (1 hour 15 minutes from TPA airport) by which time the delay advice was increased to 7 hours. I called Frontier and they agreed to rebook me (at no charge) on a flight on Feb. 26th since all flights on the 25th were booked. I just checked and saw that Flt 291 actually departed TPA at 5:02 AM on the 25th. As always, it was stressful trying to talk to an agent having to listen through numerous recordings before I couold connect to ascertain times and make changes. I contacted Frontier at least 5 times and had language difficulties every time."
Pros: "First time flying with Frontier. No complaints other than having to pay for my carry on luggage. But when I only spent $80 (taxes and fees included) to fly from Dallas to Denver, I'm still happy."
Cons: "When we booked the flight and there wasn't any disclosure about luggage expense and the check in personnel didn't tell us that it was cheaper to check all the bags, so we inadvertently paid for one bag at check-in but then paid a premium to pay for the additional carry on bags. NOT a good experience. This added an additional 120 dollars to our cheap fair. Full disclosure is always better"
Cons: "Website is horrible. Impossible to navigate paying for bags. Seats on plane are uncomfortable and don't move."
Cons: "Comfort of flight and the cost involved with everything from bags to edible items on flight."
Pros: "Delivery of promised services"
Cons: "Things out of anyone's control ie security"
Pros: "Easy boarding, older model plane with reclining seats and padding, friendly crew members, flight was 45 minutes early upon arrival."
Cons: "Expensive carry on fees."
Pros: "Friendly check-in at Denver airport, smooth process"
Cons: "Nothing really."
Pros: "Awful flight...seats are uncomfortable...kids are annoying...flight was super loud...flight was super turbulent...will never fly frontier again :("
Cons: "problem printing boarding pass on Frontier web site, had problem with this web site before- very unfriendly and doesn't work"
Pros: "Perfect landing"
Cons: "I didn't have a pillow!"
Pros: "Although I paid extra for my carry-on ($45; which I was aware of, but some people may not be) the flight attendants were friendly and professional. They were courteous upon stepping onto the plane and throughout the duration of the flight. The seats were comfortable, and overhead space was plentiful. My 2.5 hour flight from Tampa to PHL was shortened to 2 hours. Overall, it was a great experience flying Frontier for my very first time."
Pros: "Same as flight SLC to Denver"
Cons: "No complementary drinks. Short fold down tables."
Pros: "Plane was clean"
Cons: "Despite the fact that their ticket counter was open for other flight departures, they only allow you to check in beginning two hours before your scheduled takeoff time. This really means you have only an hour and a half until your flight begins to board. On the flight they mentioned wanting more people in the exit row, but you would have to pay an extra $50 because it has more leg room, needless to say everyone chuckled at this blatant ripoff attempt. On the flight you have two pay $2 for a small glass of water, not a bottle but a small plastic cup filled primarily with ice. When we landed we had to wait 45 minutes before the checked baggage began to arrive. Overall this is a very poor airline. Watch out for the fees as they charge you $20 for each airline interaction. I would suggest avoiding them if you can as the price rapidly rises above your ticket cost & the hassles for basic services are not worth the cost."
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "You get what you pay for, I guess. It's so sad to see a once customer-focused company become only about the numbers. Tiny seats, EVERYTHING is an up charge."
Cons: "the lady at the counter told me that my bag was ok if i told some things out , i threw away some things i wanted came back and she preceeded to tell i still had to pay 45 dollars and she did not tell me that so i lost my samples and am very angry"
Pros: "The price - but it won't create long term customers"
Cons: "The space, the aircraft felt cheap/unsafe which made turbulence more unsafe, the tray tables don't even fit a small lap top which is comical, the lack of food availability. Overall feels extremely cheap and unsafe in camparison to other aircrafts. Comparable to Spirit."
Pros: "flight on time"
Cons: "totally squished between two largely overweight individuals. This was the most awkward interaction I've had with the human race in my 41 years of existence. Can there not be an overweight seating section with two seats per row and charge them more?"
Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "Although the flight was good I was shocked that I had to pay an additional fee for my seat upon check-in via the internet. I had to pay $17 extra on the way to Florida and $11 extra per seat on the return flight to Chicago. Why wasn't I made aware of this? Also, I went on Frontiers website prior to my trip to see what the carry-on fees were. They never explained the fees until after I was trying to print out my boarding pass and I was charged $40 per carry-on (3 of us were travelling). Give a head's up about your fees!!!!!! Otherwise, your prices are misleading!"
Pros: "We left on time."
Cons: "The children crying"
Pros: "Would rather pay more for v tickets with another airline. Horrible. Have to pay for everthing. Will never ride with them 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: "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: "The crew on my return flight was much more personable than on the flight out. Boarding and unboarding were super easy (no checked baggage for my flight)."
Cons: "THE HIDDEN FEES ARE CRAZY RIDICULOUS! Sure the flight starts out cheap, until you realize you have to pay for carry-on bags, and another fee when you pick your seat! Overall my flight cost was $130 more than anticipated with the hidden fees. The seats on the flight to my destination were old and uncomfortable and my seat did not recline (and I paid $30 for the super stretch seating)."
Cons: "Very slow baggage claim. Had to wait about 1/2 hour."
Pros: "Your crew was nice"
Cons: "I am 6 feet tall, and found your seats entirely too tight for my frame. I'm not overweight, just tall, as are many people. Worse, I paid $150 for my ticket, and other passengers I spoke with paid either $100 or $38 - round trip. Apparently I didn't check your site on the days of the week that you offered your discounts. I then had to pay $40 x 2 for my little carry on bag, which was ridiculous. I plan never to fly with you again."
Cons: "The plane didn't leave the terminal for over an hour after boarding!"
Pros: "Seat was so comfortable"
Cons: "If we don’t have to pay for baggage we could eat while flight was delayed"
Pros: "Not even free water"
Cons: "Seats dont recline"
Pros: "The overall experience was very nice. The flight attendants were very humorous and made the flight even better. Both my flights arrived early which is always nice. I would definitely fly Spirit again."
Pros: "This was my first time flying Spirit and I had no issues. As long as you are taking a pretty short trip, this airline is great. Also, you should have everything with you, bag, drinks, snacks, etc. because you will pay extra for all of that. I carried a bag pack which fit under the seat and brought my own snacks and entertainment, so no issues. Flight was smooth and flight arrived ahead of schedule."
Cons: "Seats were pretty close together, but I’m a small person so it was fine. If you are tall, this might be an issue. My husband is 6’4” and would have been uncomfortable in a standard row."
Pros: "I got the lucky seat so 5k points for me! Yay!"
Pros: "Friendly staff and updates. Price of tickets very fair."
Cons: "When you bring a very small carry on, a staff will try to charge for it."
Cons: "Everything! A waist of money."
Pros: "Got cancelled"
Cons: "Fly got cancelled"
Pros: "It my favorite ai line, but the staff was great and the trip uneventful."
Pros: "Getting upgraded for feee to an exit row seat where I had more leg room!"
Cons: "Didn't print my own b pass... Should've gone to a kiosk. Got to ticketing 55 min before flight, then I got bounced around from line to line (ending up where I started) and then told sorry! It's closed. I had to rebook, fly to Detroit, wait around 4 hours, and finally got home 8 hours later than scheduled and I had to pay for the new flight! The agent actually mentioned that Spirit overbooked!!! No wonder they didn't give me a b pass right away. Obvious it was a con job."
Pros: "I slept while onboard through both legs. I didn't want to be awake for the flight after the booking expirences."
Cons: "On the outbound leg from Dallas I volunteered to move seats for weight and balance reasons at Spirit's request. My return leg was canceled by the gate agent or the system had me as a no show. I tried to check in for the return leg and was unable. I called to get this resolved and got a CSA that didn't understand airline travel or English not sure which. (One example was I spelled my confirmation code 5 times both phonetically and in plain language) I tried to explain that my return leg was cancel for some reason when I volunteered for the seat adjust on the outbound leg. She continued to ask me to book and make a new reservation. I asked for a supervisor and received no help. Decided the best course of action was to hang up and try to get someone else. After navigating the voice prompts again I finally got someone who asked me for proof I was on the outbound. I informed him no one saves the boarding passes he needs to check the manifest the TSA requires of all airlines. He backed off after he understood that I knew the system and reactivated my return leg. It is still a mystery to me why my return leg was canceled after the airline requested me to move seats. It seems Spirit have saved money on front line employee training and saved a good bit on off shore CSA call center. Last time I'll fly Spirit and I'm posting it everywhere I can. I'll see you on the internet. Spirit Airlines-HC6N2Q"
Pros: "Arrived on time. Easy to get ticket from kiosk . Bag fit under the seat and in the overhead compartment. Cheap ticket."
Cons: "Crew looked and sounded as though they hate their job. Middle seat was much smaller then the isle or window."
Pros: "How they charged you for everything they could dream of."
Pros: "My flight was early. Everyone cooperated, no bumps in boarding. I'll be flying again."
Cons: "I honestly have no complaints. It was a great flight."
Pros: "Easy access, boarding, seating. Nice, new plane with updated amenities."
Cons: "The bag space under the seat in front of me seemed larger before, but it's probably just a misconception."
Cons: "Every thing"
Pros: "On time, friendly crew"
Cons: "overly narrow seats, no free coffee"
Pros: "I personally checked everything through Spirit's website and they let you know online that they are a "no frills" airline. If you can fit it in one bag then the cost is perfect."
Cons: "The amount of people who had no clue what they were in for was unnerving. It was a tight fit."
Pros: "The staff was excellent"
Cons: "The flight was smoth and the the captain and flight attendees where outstanding."
Pros: "The airline is very efficient and the staff is friendly."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable, nothing included. Tiny tray table. Southwest is much better."
Pros: "horrible. horrible. horrible"
Cons: "horrible. horrible. horrible"
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Tray tables are too small. They were stupid actually."
Cons: "Our flight was cancelled and we were stranded in the Dallas-Fort Worth airport to find out own way home to Tampa. Spirit refunded us our return flight but was of no help in our rebooking. This was the first and last time I will ever take this airline. They took absolutely no responsibility for their actions and had not concern at all for our well being. Terrible, just terrible. Shame on Spirit Airlines."
Cons: "Spirit cancelled my flight and would not offer to re-book me on a subsequent flight. They refunded my fare, but would not offer any other hep/services. I will NEVER fly this airline again."
Cons: "Had 2 flights from Las Vegas to Tampa. One was late & gate was changed. No one announce gate change & monitors did not show gate change until almost too late. Extra charge for EVERYTHING, including a cup of water AND for cary-on bags. Had 2 flights from Tampa to Las Vegas. One was almost 2 hours late. MULTIPLE people felt the same way we did..... We will NEVER fly with Spirit Airlines again."
Cons: "Flight was canceled just a few hours before the flight was scheduled to take off. We had to buy the last two business class tickets with American Airlines in order to make it to Dallas in time for a national sports tournament. Absolutely horrible."
Pros: "I got there and back, albeit not on time"
Cons: "This airline is a joke. They advertise low prices to entice you to buy flights from them, then they've got you. The fees and charges to actually complete your trip are OUTRAGEOUS. My family and I began making jokes about all the fees, just to keep our sanity. I had initially booked us on American but switched it to Spirit because I thought I was saving $400. In the end, I spent 20% more flying Spirit We almost missed our return flight. After overly scolding us for cutting it so close, the lady at the ticket counter did everything possible to cause us to miss it. We sprinted to the gate where we were again chastised for not being earlier. Of course once we boarded, we sat there at the gate for over an hour due to maintenance issues. We concluded that they call the airline Spirit because they break your spirit if you fly this airline."
Pros: "Loved the price. Flew from DFW to Tampa round trip for $121."
Cons: "The space on the plane is tough on me with no reclining chairs but then again I am 6'4" and 240 lbs."
Cons: "Spirit website is horrible and so is the customer service"
Cons: "They tried to charge me after canceling two of my flights. Missed two days of my vacation in California and had to drive 5 hours from Tampa to ft. Launder dale to get a flight which included me having to rent a car extra. Never would recommend spirit to anyone."
Cons: "Flight canceled"
Cons: "My Flight was suppose to depart at 1:25 p.m and was delayed until 2:15. When I got to the terminal the flight had been moved to 4 different terminals and then was taken down all together until one of the other spirit airlines flights left. This ultimately ended up putting is at a 2 hour delay on flight and almost caused me to miss my connecting flight. If it weren't for a good amount of other people needing the connection flight that I needed I would have missed my flight."
Pros: "The boarding process was actually fairly smooth and efficient."
Cons: "I purchased the Spirit ticket because it was ~$30 cheaper than my other options. I was okay with the connecting flights for the savings. Silly me, I didn't check the fine print-- Spirit charges to CARRY ON a bag. Both ways. The $30 I thought I saved was quickly erased when I ended up spending $90 to carry a duffel bag on the plane. All FOUR of my flights were delayed by nearly two hours. Seats were thin, sparsely padded, and cramped."
Pros: "The crew was so unprofessional and it's like we were bothering them when we asked for something."
Cons: "The crew The seats. The person behind me kicked the whole time and the person next to me spread har legs and took the arm rest so it was the worst flight I ever experienced. They need to recline a little more leg room since I paid $36 for 2 seats and wifi."
Cons: "I wish there was in flight wifi and cvs."
Pros: "This flight originated out of Portland to Las Vegas and then to Los Angeles where it was scheduled to depart to Dallas at 10:31 am. Initially at 9:45 when I checked in at 9:40 I was told the flight was delayed until 2:30 pm. Then when I called Spirit at 12:40 pm after receiving an e-mail from Kayak that the flight was cancelled I was told that I had 2 options: (1) To fly to Vegas where I would connect at 1:50 am and arrive in Dallas at 6:30 am or to receive a refund. The next day arrival into Dallas was not possible or acceptable so I chose the refund.. Later I found out that other passengers were booked on other flights, offered a $25.00 food voucher, and a $50 credit to be used within 60 days. I found this out after I had already booked another flight on American Airlines and when I spoke with a Spirit ticket agent they said that you made a decision so ther isn't anything that they (Spirit) could do. It cost me an additional $200.00 dollars to get to Dallas 9 hours later. What a way to be treated by Spirit Airlines after they knew the flight was cancelled when it never left Portland. My husband is a 21 year Army Officer and we travel ofter (1st time with Spirit) and we have never been treated with such disrespect. Thank You Susan Boyko"
Cons: "Delayed cuz the A/C smelt. Didn't offer us anything."
Pros: "This flight form Tampa to Dallas was smooth. There were no problems, boarding was quick, the plane was clean, the ride was smooth, the pilot was nice, thank you Spirit for finally getting this right."
Cons: "It would be great if all experiences like I had yesterday with Spirit were the same. Please have some extra training for your flight attendants and other employees and offer ways for them to interact positively like the ones who work at the Tampa airport."
Pros: "Cheap flight. I sat in the big seats which were spacious."
Cons: "It was cold on the plane. The flight was also late leaving."
Pros: "Let's be honest... This is the smoke and mirrors that we all feared would happen one day. Competitive fares, not really, and then less than basic services. Someday we'll debate wether a flight attendant is necessary for an evacuation. I'm seeing vending machines following the automated safety briefing. Put your money into the pilots, I say."
Cons: "Folks....this was my first time flying on spirit and all I can say is never again! It all started a couple weeks before the actual trip when I called their customer service number (it's a toll number NOT 1-800) and come to find out their call center is located in Asia. Talk about a language and culture barrier. The individual on the phone was not able to help me out due to their lack of speaking basic English. The trip itself started with a cabin that was disgustingly dirty from the previous flight and yes you WILL get buckled and dimed for everything! Want a Coke? It will cost you 3$. Need a boarding pass? 5$ In fact, to be able to carry on a small average sized suitcase it cost 45$. Seriously! 45$ just to carry on a smal suitcase and that price is just one way! Do yourself a favor and fly with a legacy carrier instead Delta, American, or United). Spirit has horrible customer service, dirty airplanes, and thy will nickle and dime every possible dollar from you! That's all!"
Pros: "They were willing to refund, since it was their fault."
Cons: "Other than that they were completely unhelpful and unwilling to do anything to correct their situation. They told me I'd have to take a flight the following day from an airport an hour and a half away but were unwilling to provide transportation or a hotel. I had to buy another ticket on a different airline day of, which cost me an extra 300. I would highly recommend that no one ever fly Spirit Airlines. I was unaware of their reputation before booking, but since then everyone I have spoken with has said that they knew to never fly Spirit. Somehow I missed the memo."
Pros: "The fact that we actually got to Dallas eventually"
Cons: "Everything was an absolute mess. The crew seemed like a bunch of college kids working for spirit through an internship program. The plane was inevitably delayed for two hours. Once we finally got on the plane, we have to wait another twenty minutes for the fuel truck to come fuel the plane. I'm surprised we even landed in the right state."
Pros: "seats ere not big enough . I was beside a very, very large person she was nect to another large person. Each person spilled over their seat into the next leaving me on the end. I had to lean over into the isle and still was terribly uncomfortable"
Pros: "I'm 6'6/260lbs. There was an open seat in the exit row, and the flight attendant gave me that open seat. Give her a Nobel prize."
Pros: "The flight attendants were kind."
Cons: "I must 1st start by saying that my flight into Tampa from Dallas was incident free. The plane left on time, I felt safe and I was able to get my luggage within a reasonable timeframe. HOWEVER, the flight from Tampa to Dallas was a nightmare! I checked my bag and got to the gate 5 minutes early just to find that the plane had left 10 minutes early, leaving about 10 other people behind! As directed by the gate attendant, I got back on the Tram to talk to the booking agent located where I'd checked my bag. Once there, I inquired on the next flight leaving at 2:13pm. Since it was 1:30 while speaking to the attendant, I expressed my need to get on that plane since it was the last direct flight to Dallas all day. Not only did he tell me I would not make it (I had PLENTY of time and there was NO ONE in the TSA line), I would need to go to Cleveland and THEN to Dallas. Instead of getting home in Dallas at 3:30pm, I didn't get home until 11pm all because the pilot left 10 minutes before the flight was supposed to depart! To add insult to injury, when I arrived in Dallas, I was told to inquire about my luggage with the luggage attendant. I did so, and when I went inside the office & didn't even speak my reason for being in their presence (2 ladies were behind the desk), they asked me to step outside. I did so, and got in line, waiting my turn. Once it was my turn to re-enter the office, I explained my situation and what my luggage looked like. One just stared at me like they had no idea why I was speaking with them and the other seemed annoyed that they were having to get out of their chair to go to the back part of the office (it was RIGHT behind her and the size of a broom closet). They then let me know that they do not have it in the office and that I'll need to go back out the luggage carousel to see if it came in on my flight. HIGHLY frustrated at this point, I calmly explained that I was told it had made it on the flight that I'd missed that morning and that it would be in their office. They worked there, so, I did ask they asked and watched for it to come in on the carousel. 20 minutes later and almost midnight, I watched as bag after bag after bag was picked up until only one bag was left (not mine), making the round on the carousel alone. My ride was outside waiting for me and I had to wait, just like they'd instructed. In my mind, they work there and they would know. Literally, a minute before midnight, one of the luggage claim workers came out of their office and advised me to come into their office because they didn't think my bag was coming in on the carousel. NO KIDDING?! Anyways, they had me come in and fill out an incident report for lost luggage. I finally received my luggage 2 days later only after my mother had to contact the president of Spirit Airlines and I myself, multiple calls."
Pros: "Pilots are engaging n extremely funny n entertaining 2thumbs up n 10 stars!! Both from Dallas to tampa n back!"
Cons: "I flew Nov 23,2015 from Tampa to Dallas flight 813 n there was a male stewardess that was extremely rude to everyone never smiled very cold I hope I never see him again he definitely isn't someone that could be reassuring if needed. The flight was overbooked n last minute it wasn't, I assure you it was because next to me n a few around me should have purchased either larger seat or 2 seats it was very uncomfortable...... It happens I know"
Pros: "I fell asleep"
Cons: "Boarding was very unorganized"
Cons: "Sat next to a 400 lb man that took up half of my seat. Seats on this Spirit flight were way too small even for a normal sized man (my husband is 200 lbs and was sitting on the other side of me- I was absolutely squished!). Someone should have made the 400 lb man purchase 2 seats or sit up front. Also, Spirit seats are too small to be worth the savings."
