Top 5 airlines serving Tampa to New Orleans Louis Armstrong
Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
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 Plane seem outdated and very loud.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"
Pros: "Predictably late."
Cons: "Be on time."
Cons: "Being on time."
Cons: "Crew unfriendly."
Pros: "Crew was great. Planes with built in TV was even better."
Cons: "One really obnoxious kid kept screaming the entire time. Instead of charging for earbuds maybe give them out for those of us that don’t have any."
Pros: "The crew was professional and courteous, one of the best crews we had experienced onboard Delta."
Cons: "Cleaner bathroom"
Cons: "CheezIts were too salty. We had to sit on NO tarmac for over 10 minutes because a plane was stuck at our gate...several other gates empty - what's up?"
Pros: "The short duration of the flight and punctual arrival. Better seating with more leg space in Airbus than in the horrible Boeing 467- 400."
Cons: "No headsets distributed so I couldn't listen to film program. Crew rather impersonal. I'm dreaming of an airline that uses functioni g loudspeakers during boarding. Nobody understands acoustically which zone is being boarded ( not only a Delta issue)."
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: "The comfort of the seat, the food"
Cons: "Everything else"
Pros: "No entertainment and no food other than snacks."
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: "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."
Pros: "New aircraft A320"
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"
Cons: "was a great flight"
Cons: "Flight was delayed nearly 2 hours without any compensation to the passengers. I frequently fly jet blue and whenever they are that delayed not weather related the staff frequently gives the passengers a complimentary cocktail. Also your boarding process makes little sepnse to me why board from the front of the plane more sensible to board back to front"
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"
Pros: "It wasn’t bad or good."
Pros: "Staff was frIendly."
Cons: "One of my bags went to Santa Fe"

Cons: "Long delay due to maintenance of oxygen masks issue. Why hadn't this been taken care of with preventive maintenance?"
Pros: "The staff are fun and friendly. One of the hostesses stepped into the vacant seat where I was sitting and stepped back further when people where pushing by. We were almost cheek to cheek. The closest I've come to a cute bum in years."
Cons: "The gratis food offering isn't healthy - those bread pretzels, versus the almond & tomato juice I had on the next flight, with ...can't remember the name."
Cons: "Seating was tight"
Pros: "Excellent infotainment system"

Cons: "No space."

Pros: "The flight was good, but the flight attendants were friendly and fun making it better than usual."

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: "When our flight was delayed by four hours they gave us snacks at the gate. No one offered to reschedule."
Cons: "The 45 minute wait in the Sky Priority lane to drop off baggage. The flight was delayed because of weather and then their scheduling system crashed. Had to wait for a pilot. When we finally boarded at 5 we got peanuts in first class. That was worth the mileage upgrade. Upon landing there was a 1/2 wait on the tarmac to get a gate. That same plane, upon taking off back to DTW blew a tire upon take-off, had to do an emergency landing and everyone had to spend the night in NOLA after being delayed all day."
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: "The crew was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The delays, we change to gate three times, Delta never told us why the changes or announce them. If it wouldn't be for Trippet Pro, where I got notices, I would not have known about gate changes."
Pros: "The crew was very apologetic and nice about the delays."
Cons: "The plane was 20 minutes late getting to the gate. Then we sat on the runway for over 30 minutes, while we waited in line for 30 other planes to take off. After a long day and a flight from Venice Italy, it was a bit disappointing to have this sort of delay."
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."
Pros: "Got to my destination on time."
Cons: "Air conditioning condensation was dripping on my head the entire flight."
Pros: "The flight was convertible and pilot kept updating why the ride was rough, which I appreciated."
Pros: "We actually got food! Not the usual peanuts, pretzels or cookie. Although minimal ( carrots, celery,radishes w/ dip & crackers), it was nice since I had just ran to the gate after a 4 1/2 hr flight from the east coast. Why can't this be done on more flights? What a nice touch!"
Pros: "I found staff everywhere helpful"
Cons: "Original flight scheduled for 11:46 am departure. Four delays with final departure at 7pm. Connecting flight cancelled until next day. Spent night in airport. It would be great to have a secure little sleep space for single travelers. TVs in open areas were too loud and I asked to have them turned down after Monday Night Football. They were but were still very loud and I can sleep through a lot."
Pros: "Delays. Very hard to rebook. Crew was inattentive. No chargers or TVs. Little overhead bin space. Terrible flight."
Cons: "Fix everything mentioned above"
Cons: "Business class - never offered food or drink for entire flight."
Pros: "Plane had three delays. Apparently American mechanics are not allowed to strike so they have these fake or very slow mechanical issues."
Cons: "Be on time. We missed our overseas connection and had to buy new tickets to Italy"
Pros: "Good seating and pleasant crew."
Cons: "Board in reverse order so the back of the plane gets filled first"
Pros: "It was an average flight"
Cons: "Delay of 2 hrs and it wasn't due to weather"
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."
Cons: "Our original flight was cancelled so we were rebooked for a much later flight which impacted our vacation. Call system was not working efficiently."
Pros: "Entertainment options."
Cons: "This new low life category where you cannot even pay to be treated like a human."
Pros: "Crew was great. No electrical outlets, wntertainment was mediocre. This was an old 747 that needs an update."
Pros: "Travel time"
Cons: "No snacks on flight. The charging stations come in between legs space and very uncomfortable they got to be re adjusted. Make sure these are taken care in upcoming flights."
Pros: "Average. Expectation for US airlines are so low this flight score average."
Pros: "I liked the way the AA gate supervisor too charge of the problem and solved it, with great deal of personal imvolvement and follow up. Also check-in crew was very much the best. I would say that AA showed the best of passages care to me. Truly outstanding."
Cons: "Because of a mixup, though not of AA doing, I was literally forgotten at the gate. However, AA personnel showed the very best of can-do attitude and got me home for Thanksgiving. I am very proud of everyone working at AA at the TPA airport."
Cons: "I called your customer service department which I believe is in India or Pakistan three times to ask them to help with an alternative flight and each time I got different information, when I asked to speak to a supervisor I was told by the punk on the end of the phone that that wouldn't be possible. I asked for his name and employee number and he told me his name was Michael, difficult to believe when he sounded Indian"

Cons: "Had a bulk head seat that turned out to be not one."
Pros: "Cabin was clean. Flight attendants were courteous."

Cons: "It was a full flight, but I cannot complain"

Pros: "Boarding process was quick and staff was decent."
Cons: "Tiny seats, everyone was uncomfortable because of this. No in flight entertainment."
Pros: "I flew first class. Philadelphia airport is horrendous. I chose to fly first class to avoid lines and make flying by my lonesome go more smoothly. There are no special lines for first class there are absolutely no perks to flying first class out of Philly. The first class flight attendant was rude. They ran out of hot food by the time they got to me so I was served yogurt ... I don't eat yogurt. I waited 40 minutes for my luggage to arrive at baggage claim. The flight to Philadelphia from Tampa was a good experience. They had first class lines. The airport was cleaner. The flight attendant Steve, was kind and professional. I was served a hot lunch. I'm a diabetic and when my blood sugar went low he got me orange juice quickly. I waited maybe 10 minutes for luggage at baggage claim. However with the horrific experience in Philadlephia I may never fly American again. Definitely will never fly out of Philadelphia again. I was told by the woman who I sat next to on the way home that she hates American and usually flys Delta for her business trips."

Pros: "Easy to navigate site. Was given Pre-check on one leg, which was nice."
Cons: "Had to purchase a seat on one leg, resulting in an extra $12. That was a surprise."
Pros: "comfortable seating"
Cons: "For the crew members not to speak so loudly in the back while people are sleeping on overnight flights. If the entertainment is going to be through an App on your person devices charging outlets should be available."
Pros: "Captain and crew were capable and friendly."
Pros: "I loved the price more than anything else. All the staff were friendly and professional. Every flight was on time with no delays."

Pros: "they cancelled the flight and they did not say anything, then the crew in the airport were very rude with everyone."
Cons: "seats were very uncomfortable"
Cons: "My flight was cancelled I am told due to lack of crew. What the heck??? It took me all day to get home waiting on standby flights."
Cons: "I was delayed for an hour leaving Tampa and my connection in Charlotte was canceled. So I did not get into JFK until 12:15 in the morning. I asked for a food voucher from American in Charlotte and was denied after waiting so many hrs in Charlotte to get on a 10.05pm to jfk, that was terrible."
Pros: "I like the seat is comfortable, I have enough legroom everywhere (by every seats)."

Pros: "power outlets & TV"
Cons: "crew was cranky"
Pros: "The crew went out of their way to see that I was seated easily before the crowd came on board."
Cons: "The cookies are ok but not very refreshing. I prefer Pepsi to Coke. Being in a wheel chair, I didn't have the option to stop at a food place to get something to eat before boarding. It was so extremely cold in the cabin."
Cons: "Flight previous day that I was supposed to be on was cancelled. This one was late and there was no sense of urgency by the crew to get back on schedule. I had to run all the way across the Charlotte airport to make my connection. The gate door had already closed (early) but I got someone to open it for me. There was no assistance from the flight crew to help me make my flight. No gate information was announced, etc."
Cons: "Our flight was over 1.5 hours delayed but the AA staff at the desk wouldnt give any updates despite it being clear we were severely delayed."
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Check in concierge was rude and inaccurate at JF"
Pros: "Good, was just tired..."
Cons: "Too cold..."
Cons: "Again as usual my flight with American was delayed. This has happened on every single American flight I've taken in the past year (I have not had this problem with other airlines). We had to sit on the tar mac in Dallas with no air conditioning for an hour. The flight crew began to apologize for how 'how it was' and during the apology turned it back around on them and began to say 'we've been on this flight since 7 a.m.' (basically indicating that we should feel worse for them than ourselves). This airline has a complete disregard for customer service and I WILL NOT ever fly American again--this was the last straw."
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."
Pros: "Hetti g home"
Cons: "Checking in terrible over two to get checked in and boarding. Cabin service very very slow and to top it all our luggage did now show at destination"
Cons: "United on-board Wi-Fi wasn't available on this plane for this flight. 2.5 hours wasted..."
Cons: "Need power supply for passenger seats in Economy Plus."

Pros: "The crew were attentive and helpful."
Cons: "Small and cramped seats."
Pros: "This flight was good better than I thought it would be crew very nice."
Cons: "Seat didn't recline."
Cons: "Seat was broken and light didn’t work. Terrible response when I pointed it out."
Pros: "The crew were always really helpful and kind. They were happy to speak English or Japanese."
Cons: "Despite stitching when I could and as soon as I could. Lower back buttocks hurt pretty bad half way through the flight. This is a knock on the airline industry and not so much ANA. Comfort levels start diminish when you try to squeeze as many seats as you can into airplane. Especially, for people like me who are at least 6' tall. Also, the food was very meh. This was surprising because all my other experiences with ANA were quite the opposite."
Pros: "Cheap price"
Pros: "Crew was pleasant served a snack and drink, flight was good got us there on time pleasantly surprised thanks United ."
Cons: "Slow boarding process should use front and rear boarding but then again all airlines do it and flight boarded 30 minutes behind schedule"
Cons: "From the surly check in personnel, to the confused boarding. Even less charming than usual. The flight was scheduled to depart at 11:40 from Tampa to Newark. Twenty minute delay for boarding and then additional 40 minute ground delay. Flight scheduled from 11:40 to 2:20 p.m. Onboard the flight attendant came through with the food carte. Were any of the "lunch" items available? "No, we only have snack items on this flight." But it's during lunch time... "It's not a long enough flight." WHO COULD MAKE THIS UP? We declined to complain for fear we would be thrown from the plane. Oh yes, I have 1,800,000 miles on United."
Pros: "Super easy & smooth flight. We left on time & arrived early."
Cons: "Nothing really. Honestly, I slept for half the trip, so it was pretty uneventful."
Cons: "Seats so cramped. Fat person next to me invaded my space in my middle seat"
Cons: "horrible service representative in newark."

Cons: "Delay on return flight."
Cons: "The wi fi should be free of charge"
Pros: "The crew , living on time"
Cons: "I had no dislikes"
Pros: "Smooth flight, nice staff, on time"
Cons: "Not enough leg room!!! The new planes cram us in even tighter. Unless you pay more, you suffer. Why should we have to pay more just because we are tall??!! Pocket for book etc is way too small."
Cons: "The crew was pretty rude on this flight for some reason."
Pros: "Flight is okay but may turn horrible when one is flying on an EMPTY stomach . At least they could add a few dollars to the ticket price and carry out this most needed thing --- FOOD"
Pros: "No delays and on time arrivals, courteous staff"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Very friendly service"
Cons: "My direct flight to New Orleans was canelled forcing me to arrive five hours late for my ride from the airport."
Pros: "flight was mercifully short ..."
Cons: "brand new plane with impossible seating dimensions for any normal humans, even at the upgraded price; crew increasingly more concerned with labor relations and their own dramas than with passengers comfort or experience (perhaps understandable, given management screws put to them, but still unprofessional)."
Pros: "Love the customer service and friendly staff"
Pros: "Free snacks and we arrived 30 mind early"
Pros: "On time!"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "The pilot and crew responded very well to the delay. Very friendly on the intercom, offered the small things like a full drink and tv access. Good response to a tough situation."

Pros: "The flight attendants."
Pros: "The agent who checked me in tried to find me a better connection, but in the end, it took me 9 hours to get from Tampa to Montreal. Never made Newark as I Hubbed in Chicago."
Cons: "My two seats were not together and river landing very rough"
Cons: "As an international traveler I find it annoying to have to pay for my bags on an internal domestic flight. There should be some reciprocation with partner airlines to cover baggage if coming from international to domestic flights"
Pros: "Late flight. Slow to board Given middle seat"
Pros: "Flight attendant on PA had beautiful speaking voice"
Cons: "Turbulence precluded cabin service"
Pros: "The staff were friendly and very helpful when my family member became sick on the plane and required a wheelchair. They were very easygoing and accommodating about it."
Cons: "I paid for the tv package both ways, and the movies I had watched were all the same on the way back, which felt like I had wasted money."
Pros: "They tried. Booked on next day out of a different airport. No help with transport or hotel because not their fault."
Cons: "Last flight was deleyed and finally got in the air by 2 and ended up turning around and going back to the airport. Once I got there they told me they didn't have flights for the next 3 days so I was stuck in sanfransico airport by myself after paying over 700 on my ticket."
Pros: "The plane was roomy... The flight attendants were pleasant... The bag checkin was inexpensive... Quality and excellent custoner service. I have traveled many airlines... United is by far my favorite after this experience... Thank you!"
Pros: "The flight was delayed 38 minutes. Boarding was not pleasant. Never have a Stewart come by. No entertainment."
Pros: "Terrible, waited all day for them to tell us they didn't have a plane had nothing to do with weather or anything else. No excuse and no compensation offered. Stranded at the airport that night and no flight offed as replacement. This is not the end of this between united and myself. Won't use them again."
Pros: "The boarding process and on time service"
Cons: "Terrible landing and crew in first class wasn't proactive. Pain more attention to his jump seat colleague"
Pros: "it was alright"
Pros: "No problems whatsoever...in fact, we arrived 10 minutes early."
Pros: "very comfortable ride, no bumps at all."
Cons: "no snacks, didnt have my debit card to pay for the ones for sale"

Pros: "It was quick and easy, we took off a little early & landed early as well."
Pros: "Staff guided"
Cons: "Flight to San Diego was due to depart 15 minutes before we started boarding at the same gate. That plane was late due to lack of people to clean the plane. Instead of using a different gate the plane had to sit and wait for that one to move before unloading and allowing us to board our flight."
Pros: "flight was on time and crew was really good to the needs of the passangers, didn't eat for those prices."
Cons: "seats aren't very comfortable and cramped"
Cons: "Mild turbulence"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for 8 hours before ultimately being canceled."
Cons: "Worst airline ever"
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"
Pros: "The plane was clean. The food and drink selection was fabulous, although we didn’t get any because the flight was short and turbulent but good to know for next time."
Cons: "Wish I could check in online and have boarding pass sent to phone or print out myself."
Cons: "Will not be using. Hidden charges doe luggage. No complimentary drinks. Filthy conditions. Will not be using frontier ever again."
Pros: "Literally nothing. Will not fly again."
Cons: "Completely disorganized. Took 30 minutes to check a bag. Nickel and dimed at every turn. Flight crew was borderline annoying. Was not a relaxing flight whatsoever. JUST BAD."
Cons: "Small table trays & uncomfortable seats. You get what you pay for."
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."
Pros: "I can tell you what I didn't like. My seat and bags cost more than the flight itself. So no I did not have a good experience and I will never fly Spirit again"
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: "Cost of the flight - efficient boarding - delightful crew - on time, even early - convenient time of flight"
Cons: "Cost of baggage fee - the fact that even a soft drink cost money - cost of a regular economy seat"
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."
Cons: "183$ in seating and luggage fees AFTER the base ticket price...I wasn't made aware of these charges until I went to check in for my flight. No leg room. Seats don't recline. Tray table about the size of an iPhone 6. No entertainment. No snacks. All drinks cost money. Rude staff. Just a disaster of an experience. I'll never fly frontier again."
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: "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: "A mediocre experience that charged me for every interaction with the airline, including a can of club soda. An obnoxious business model."
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."
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: "Great fare.awesome staff.had to wait to load bags.but will fly again"
Cons: "That they did not have enough people to process all the flights " we didn't expect all of you to show up" Allowed four other flights to cut in line to make their flight but when it came to new Orleans had 100 of us not board. 4 hours later, 5 lines and lying to us about the plane turning around They Told us the next flight was 4 days later... not even connections options. At first they did not want to give us refunds either until they called security on one irate small blonde lady and security, afraid of a riot I think, told the airline they needed to resolve the issue."
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."
Cons: "I did not like the rude service i was given... the flight attendees were extremely rude and one of them forgot to give me back my credit card and he couldn't find it initially."
Pros: "On time bag claim fast comfortable seat for short flight"
Cons: "Baggage drop off line at 5am ridiculous"
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 never made it to New Orleans because there was an unbelievable number of people trying to check in and the usual number of people checking in to the point that the check in line was over 2 hours long. This is completely unacceptable that Frontier wouldn't be staffed enough to meet the needs of the people who are paying for flights."

This is completely unacceptable that Frontier wouldn't be staffed enough to meet the needs of the people who are paying for flights."
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?"
Cons: "Flight was delayed three hours with no compensation for time. It would've been nice to receive a voucher for dinner considering time. Also, attempting to sleep on a flight is always difficult but turning on the lights to serve beverages was a bit much. Dim lighting would be a better option."
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: "I say the exact same "I should have just flown delta" story EVERY TIME I go with a cheap airline. Flight was delayed from 5pm to 6pm, then to 11:30pm, then 1:30am. So I had to buy a stupid expensive last minute ticket on Delta (Frontier doesn't work with other airlines, to rebook flights or even find your luggage) then drive two hours from the airport to see my family for the holidays.. Then take a 2 hour trip back to the airport the next day to pick up my luggage, which Frontier wouldn't deliver to me because I "voluntarily separated" from them. I suppose that's technically true, but I think there's an argument there that Frontier's complete lack of competency forced to me do it."
Pros: "Comfortable plane"
Cons: "Delayed 3.5 hours"
Pros: "I knew of the baggage policies so check in was easy and smooth. Other people seemed to have trouble with it so maybe baggage policies should be more advertised. Overall, great and comfortable experience for me."
Cons: "They didn't have paperwork done and we were sitting on the runway for over an hour waiting."
Pros: "How easy it was to board"
Cons: "Not charge us for a soda"
Pros: "Clean plane"
Cons: "We could have departed on time"
Cons: "Roomier seats"
Pros: "Crew was super nice!!"
Pros: "I like the fact that we actually got into the airport early because there was a tailwind about that that was it"
Cons: "if I had my earbuds which I forgot I would have been better because it wasn't noisy fight it was a full fight but it was uneventful really"
Pros: "Quick flight."
Cons: "Seats are cramped and uncomfortable."
Pros: "Pilot made up for lost time."
Cons: "Not comfortable for the price"
Cons: "The plan was dirty. They need to make sure they wipe down everything. It gross"
Pros: "Direct flight"
Pros: "I read that everything was ala carte on Spirit Airlines, so I knew to pay for my bag online and carry on only the size allowed for free. The boarding and flight was very smooth. There are kiosks at the airport to print your boarding pass which also saves you money."
Cons: "I didn't understand how to pay for a beverage/snack while on board the plane. Wish that something that inexpensive would be offered without charge!"
Cons: "Not enough leg room. Water and small snacks not complimentary"
Pros: "On time arrival."
Pros: "The staff was courteous and happy. Smiling and speaking to passengers. No carry on baggage fee. I have been flying frequently over the last couple years and it was the only staff that made me feel like customer service matters."
Cons: "A fee for water and soda."
Cons: "First, they charged 50$ (!!!) for each check in bag while most airlines charge 25$. That is double! And for a domestic flight!! To top that, no one at the check in counter had told us that skateboards are not allowed on board (even though they saw us with it). We arrived at the gate, about to board the flight and a second before getting on the plane, we were told that we could not go on with the skate board. All this is while we see people take in strollers that are far bigger than a simple board with wheels. They claimed that it's a "weapon". It is as much a weapon as a stroller. They made us pay additional 65$ (!!!) just to throw it inthe bells with no wrapping or bag, and to sign a liability release so if it will break we wouldn't be able to sue. We felt completely ripped off! The only other option according to them was to pack it and board the next flight (of course this was a non- refundable flight). To top everything off- the airplane was old, they sold one seat to oversized people in a way that it was impossible to have your iwnspace and they didn't even serve water in a 3.5 hiur flight. It was a horrible experience and we wouldn't recommend spirit airlines to anyone ever. We ended up paying an extra 165$!!!"
Pros: "They staff was very nice and entertaining"
Cons: "I will never fly spirit airlines again due to all the hidden fees!"
Cons: "Uncomfotable seats, delayed flight, they made all passengers deboard the plane just before takeoff, service tech was on plane making people nervous, it was the worst flight ever"
Cons: "Flight delayed 3+ hours. Nickle and dime you to death with charges"
Pros: "Flight crew was nice from LAX to MSY"
Cons: "small seats, hidden baggage fees through priceline"
Cons: "I was never told it would cost me $55 to have a carry on bag! Ridiculous! $60 if I wanted to check it. There is no beverage or food service. Thank God I always bring snacks on plane rides. MY FLIGHT WAS DELAYED OVER 5 HOURS then we sat on the tarmac as the pilot informed us they were having computer issues (30 more minutes). There is absolutely NO LEGROOM! I am 5'4" and my knees were hitting the seat in front of me. No tv or music either. It's like the Yugo of airlines. I would NOT recommend flying this airline EVER!"
Pros: "I was kept in line until it was too late to allow me to get a boarding pass. The 3 groups of travelers before me took an unusually long time as they could not understand why they were not allowed to get boarding passes. The CS Manager did direct me to an airline that I was able to buy full price ticket from."
Cons: "The same excuse was given to every traveler that was in the line with me. I listened to it explained to at least 10 travelers that day. Since that time, I have yet to hear any positive feedback from anyone that travels frequently. You seem to pray on people that do not travel often. The ticket that was purchased for this fight was bought by my wife. She was trying to do me a favor. Maybe some that actually cares about your reputation and would like to see your airlines succeed over time will contact me in an attempt to change my opinion. I can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org"
Cons: "$50 per bag Tired dirty seats Attendants playing cards at front of plane"
Pros: "All of the flights were on time, boarding was quick and the staff was very nice"
Cons: "I'm over airlines nickle and diming the customers to death! Not only do they have hefty carry on bag charges, but they also charge to reserve your seat. And forget about even getting a small cup of water because you have to pay for everything... even water!"
Pros: "Price of flight was very good. Gave free upgrade to older couple couple because of birthday. Nice touch! Flight was 1/2 full and attendant gave us a better seat. thank you!"
Cons: "Was very ruff ride. Had seatbelt light on most of journey."
Pros: "I liked the price of the ticket. I was looking for an inexpensive ticket without the bells and whistles and Spirit fit those requirements"
Pros: "Crew was funny"
Pros: "No hassle travel"
Cons: "extra charges for everything"
Pros: "Good flight on time. I fly a lot - exceptional soft landing. Personable, helpful crew."
Pros: "I thought the seats were decent, and the aisle is wider than most."
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that only one bathroom was working. The price for luggage is OUTRAGEOUS. There was pretty much no service from the flight attendants. This was the first time I've flown with Spirit and it will be the last. I should have known better than to not book with Delta or Southwest. Even though you lure customers in with your initial low price but than you nickel and dime the customers to death with fees for everything and the extreme high cost for luggage, that your initial ticket price became higher than the other two carriers initial price. Shame on you!"
Pros: "The flight was good. I wish there had been a little more room but I will definitely fuse Spirit again if the flight is the right price"
Pros: "That it was short, but that's due to geographical luck .. nothing your airline did."
Cons: "I wish there was in flight wifi and cvs."
Cons: "Sprirt Airlines. There seat don't recline, your center of gravity has you falling forward of you dose off, absolutely the most miserable flight I've ever taken."
Cons: "the fact that the misleading low cost led to me paying more than i would have in baggage costs, seat costs, and it came to way more than i expected to pay. couldve booked first class on american and paid less. Shameful ."
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!"
Cons: "2 hours delay again"
Pros: "I fly Spirit with only a personal item and I get a random seat. For these reasons Spirit is perfect and cheap for me! We left on time and arrived 20 minutes early!"
Pros: "The aircraft was new and up to date. One of the flight attendants was very rude to you customers. Charging for WATER is reprehensible. Shame on your management for even considering that."
Cons: "Had I known of the hidden fees, I never would have booked. From now on, I will skip past Spirit Airlines when searching for a flight."
Pros: "The ticket cost is low."
Cons: "Spirit is a garbage airline."
Cons: "The flight leaving Vegas was an 1.5 hours delayed which put me in NoLa at 2am."
Pros: "Nothing at all. It was a horrible experience as I am relating in the other column. Would never recommend them to anyone and warn others of our bad experience."
Cons: "Horrible customer service at check-in, they refused to do anything to help us. Our plane was still there for 45min but they wouldn't let us on said we were five mins to late to check in. On top of all this they couldn't get us on a flight for TWO days and would not refund our money or help us get a flight on any other airline, said the were not affiliated with any of the other airlines. We had wait in the airport for 4 hrs and pay $500.00 to get seats on a Delta flight. Needless to say I will never use Spirit again and will tell others of our experience."
Pros: "Not enjoyable at all"
Pros: "It are first time flirting it was nice Thank you!"
Cons: "Everything. Staff was not courteous and rushed me. Charged me for my baggage though I only had one carry on. Didn't offer any sort of in flight beverages. Last time I fly spirit"
Pros: "The take off and landing were perfect!"
Cons: "the seats don't lean back at all"
Pros: "Everyone of your team was always working hard to do their very best. Pilot did a great job, The no frill's flight is just what I need when commuting back and forth to Florida. I have all my needs in both states. All I bring with me are gifts for friends that can fit in my free bag."
Cons: "Was about 45 min late for departing, because of snag's in Mn."
Pros: "Always enjoy flying spirit. With budget airlines what I'm looking for is a cheap price and on time flights. Spirit fulfilled both."
Pros: "Generally just felt cheap and pushy."
Cons: "Seat selection procedure, boarding, 90% of the experience."
Cons: "The flight was very long. That is not Spirit's fault through."
Pros: "The girl that helped us with our suitcases at boarding time was nice and considerate. The airplane staff was pleasant and had a smile on their face. They were also very accommodating."
