Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Overweight person on my left, her arm beyond armrest hitting me in my side especially when plane shook while going through the clouds. Not a good flight at all"
Cons: "The flight was delayed"
Pros: "The best"
Pros: "Confortable seats"
Pros: "Cabin crew was warm, friendly, engaging, fun, yet professional and prompt with their service"
Pros: "The boarding crew was amazing, my boyfriend and I had different seats and they were able to arrange for us to sit next to each other. They were polite and very accommodating."
Cons: "The flight was terrible it seemed like this was the first time the pilot drove a plane. Even two pilots that were sitting were speaking about how terrible the flight was. And the flight attendants were acting like they had no home training, no manners/ professionalism and always had an attitude. These flight attendants were making jokes about a belligerent passenger instead of trying to help fix the situation. This was my first time ever taking a JetBlue flight and will sure be my last, especially when I paid 100 dollars more for this flight than what United was offering- I should of took United."
Pros: "I liked that the stewardesses were attentive."
Cons: "a Bit of a rough landing."

Cons: "Plane was blowing excessive amounts of cold air on my seat, and airflow could not be adjusted. I explained this would trigger a sinus infection, a common issue for those prone to sinus infections, not to mention it was simply uncomfortable. I asked for this to be addressed. It was not, despite I was told turning down the air might be possible. No follow up was provided. Sure enough, I now have s sinus infection."
Pros: "I enjoyed the beverage options and my neighbors"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Clean airplane and great flight attendants!!! Love the fact that it has extra room for legs which makes flying so much easier. Price per checked in bag is very reasonable and allow people to check in bags rather then carrying extra large bags on the plain as pretend carry on."

Pros: "The ladies at the gate were able to provide us with the best updates and tried their best to keep everyone calm and answer as many questions as possible and were constantly checking for updates. They also provided water and chips for us where no one else was trying t do anything at all."
Cons: "The flight was delayed several hours due to mechanical issues in the cockpit. Why they would think we would want to fly on that plane after the pilot refused the "fix" and left because he and his crew "timed out" because we waited so long. Flight was scheduled to depart at 8:26pm, we didn't depart until well after 1am. I got home at 6am! The ladies at the gate were awesome, however the "supervisor, Armondo Gonzalez Figueroa, only came to restate what had already been said by the gate agents, did not have ANY answers, did not offer any solutions, barely answered any questions, and stopped the gate agents from removing blankets of the plane to provide to the many many passengers who were waiting there freezing. The compensation offered was a joke. HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE!!!!!"
Pros: "On time departure and early arrival"
Cons: "Seat did not recline and tv did not work. Very long ealk to taxi line"
Pros: "I live in Puerto Rico and because of the disaster we had very little or no communication. The airline said they left emails or called but we had no knowledge of it. But we did recieve an email to check in the day before the trip. That day we found out the flight was canceled and they couldn't find another flight to accommodate us. We almost lost our trip."
Cons: "I do not understand why Jetblue wanted to help Puerto Rico if they can't help thier own customers. This reservation was done on March and so was our cruise. I really think before you asume your customer received your notice that you talk personally with them especially under this condition."
Pros: "Seat was comfortable but our flight was over 1 hour late. In Hartford the baggage has not started to come out 20 minutes after lanfing."
Cons: "See above"

Pros: "The flight was fast and comfortable. The crew was quick and organized. The seats were comfortable as was the foot room."
Cons: "The tvs were broken the entire flight but I had a book so I was able to read that instead. When the tvs were working the earphone jacks were so worn out my earphones barely worked. Basically old and tired."

Cons: "Some of the crew on board seemed very stressed. Not many smiles."
Pros: "Good food, friendly crew"
Cons: "People issuing boarding pass not friendly"
Pros: "Nothing to like"
Cons: "Jetblue cancelled the flight 1 hour prior to departure. I had ordered a pkg through Kayak and had a departing flight to Asia from NYC leaving 2 hours after arrival. Instead of booking me on another flight that night to NYC, Jetblue rebooked my ticket for two days later. Even though I shared that we had prepaid the hotel stay and would lose that time in addition to a shortened trip, Jetblue did nothing to help. We were beyond devastated. We found our own ticket to NYC from Delta without help from Jetblue. This experience has left a very bitter taste in my mouth and destroyed my preference for Jetblue."
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."
Cons: "Being on time."
Pros: "The crew was professional and courteous, one of the best crews we had experienced onboard Delta."
Cons: "Cleaner bathroom"
Cons: "Everything else"
Pros: "Took my carry on & checked thru Edinburgh. Now I have no meds, clothes or glasses. Very wrong. Others out on larger carry Ins."
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: "Great flight!"
Pros: "Great gate agent at JFK on the layover."
Cons: "No assigned seats on second flight til we got to JFK."
Pros: "Friendly Staff"
Cons: "Check in was very hectic due to limited staff and getting bumped by the red carpet flyers. Boarding is always a little congested due to the lines. Better snacks please!!"
Pros: "the meal was OK and they served ice cream midway between SFO and JFK."
Cons: "Late departure. Long delay getting to the get because of congestion at Terminal 4."
Pros: "They kept me fed and hydrated the whole time, they let you watch brand new movies free, the seats are super comfortable. They allow a personal item and carry on at no extra charge."
Pros: "Staff was frIendly."
Cons: "One of my bags went to Santa Fe"

Cons: "That an international flight didn't allow free luggage and that liquor purchased at the airport could not be consumed on the plane."
Pros: "Flight crew took very good care of us. They served several snacks, meals and free wine on the 8+ hours flight from Prague to NYC. The hot towels to freshen up before meals was a nice touch!"
Pros: "Over all the flight was smooth and great"
Cons: "Kayak, the confirmation email that was sent was incorrect, ended up flying delta - had a scare when checking in at the air europa desk and the attendant says "theres no flights to Malaga" - after further investigation from the staff, we found out it was a Delta flight and NOT and air europa flight"

Pros: "Flight was on time and even landed early. Boarding was seamless with bag tag. Seats were comfy. Crew was professional."
Cons: "A drink with no napkins? I know airlines need to cut costs but what if I spilled my drink or want to wipe my hands after eating pretzels Delta? You can still provide napkins."
Pros: "They did fly.... finally"
Cons: "Missed connection to Bangor. Had to overnight in NYC. Substituted smaller plane for this transcontinental flight."
Pros: "Service was very nice."
Cons: "The flight was insanely delayed. Three hours. With a major product launch the next day, it was not ideal."
Pros: "Smooth flight; informative crew"
Pros: "The crew and the flight were all very pleasant. Highly recommended."
Cons: "Unfortunately the trip was marred by being stuck on the tarmac for the better part of an hour while we waited for out gate. Even when it became available however, we were forced to wait while ATC sent every other plain taxiing through our route which was clearly visible from our vantage point. Not an issue with Delta per se but nonetheless it left us all exhausted and frustrated."
Pros: "Super friendly and attentive crew. Good food. Nice new seats. Great tv entertainment options!"
Pros: "The organization and speediness shown during boarding the aircraft and the perfect timing on departure"
Cons: "The tv screen corresponding to my seat 9A was not working so could not see any movies nor information during the whole flight SDQ to JFK. The condition was reported twice to the flight attendance but was not able to correct it even after resetting the TV settings twice"

Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Cons: "Boarding was a mess"

Pros: "Clean plane, friendly crew. Ahead of schedule arrival, pilots did beat to keep in smooth air."
Cons: "Took a bit to get first beverage. Thy ran out of KIND granola bars before reaching the back of the plane."

Pros: "shorter flight"

Pros: "Delta was smart with boarding early once they realized everyone had cleared security. Flight took off on-time and arrived early. The crew was excellent and exuded energy although it was the end of the day."
Cons: "I ordered a special asian vegetarian meal and it was just plain horrible. I had to settle for the cookie. It's nice that they serve a complimentary meal on the red eye flight but the quality of the food was bad. Entertainment options were also limited although they had some recent box office entries from last year. The leg room also wasn't great but that's expected in economy I guess."
Cons: "Entertainment was working, watching movie when they said done didn't have do they were resetting system. They tried twice taking over an hour and it never came back on for anyone..... :("
Pros: "Good movie selection, nice crew"
Cons: "Terrible food, no veg options, no leg room, seats barely recline"
Pros: "I liked the new plane! It seemed like there was just a bit more room. Compared to my flight going out with American, Delta is a much nicer experience."
Cons: "Delta should change their name to always delayed"
Cons: "The crew failed to enforce ANY mask policy. The WiFi did not work. They over served alcohol to the passengers."
Pros: "Fast transportation and great seat"
Cons: "The air hostess were rude."
Pros: "Delays. Very hard to rebook. Crew was inattentive. No chargers or TVs. Little overhead bin space. Terrible flight."
Cons: "Fix everything mentioned above"
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "American's coach seats are NOT that comfy"
Pros: "Good seating and pleasant crew."
Cons: "Board in reverse order so the back of the plane gets filled first"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing. The flight was delayed to the point to where I had to stay overnight in Tampa because I would have missed my flight, connecting flight in Philly."
Cons: "Made it so I would have gotten out of here on time to make my connecting flight, and not have to spend another day in Tampa"
Pros: "Well the flight was cancelled due mechanical issues. Didn't receive any compensation. Hopfully leaving a day later"
Cons: "There was a maintenance issue on departing plane which delayed us a few minutes and when we arrived to layover airport (note we still arrived before the connecting flight was scheduled to leave), the connecting flight had decided to leave early and was gone. Now stranded with standby and all the flights for the next few days are sold out. Beyond angry!"
Pros: "Food was okay.."

Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "No entertainment on a 5 hr flight. I know a lot of people bring devices but a set of headphones and some music would be nice"
Pros: "Online boarding passes a great idea"
Cons: "Don't like to pay extra to reserve seats. Seating is overcrowded - poor leg room."
Pros: "The food and drink were abundant and served at a decent pace. The boarding seemed quick and I was able to get to my seat quickly."
Cons: "I had a 2 hour layover to switch from my BA flight to my American Airlines flight in Heathrow, but since I, and every other AA passenger had to wait in line to reprint my boarding pass to an AA boarding pass after we had taken the bus to the terminal, I waited about 45 minutes in that line. Then we had to go through security again. By the time I made it to my gate the flight said it was "closing." We took off about 15 minutes after that. The "hot box" snack had goat cheese and I'm not a fan."
Cons: "Horrible long delays."
Cons: "Crew, food, and entertainment were terrible. If I pay for british airways, I should get it. American airlines is trash, and all of the airlines in the US, should take notes from every other airline. Air travel In the US has become the bus station of the 21st century. I shouldn't be paying this much to bad business just because there isn't an alternative."
Pros: "Pasta was good."
Cons: "The touch screen did NOT work most of the time.Not able to watch GPS or select movie..."
Cons: "Too cold on the plane"
Pros: "Crew was fine and meal service was decent"

Pros: "Arrived early"
Cons: "Couldn't get movies to play"
Pros: "Smooth flight and on time."
Cons: "Small plane. Even small carry-ons had to be gate checked"
Cons: "Comfort was compromised because we had to sit in chairs against back bulkhead and chairs did not properly recline. Headphonesfor movies were not offered. Even though I tried to reserve aseat 24 hours ahead of time, the computer system was impossible to navigate."
Cons: "Flights out of RDU to Philly were late. AA will not let you get on another flight going to the same destination if your checked luggage has been committed to particular flight beforehand. You have to fly with your luggage."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled"
Cons: "3.5 hours late out of Columbus, minimal if any communication by gate agents, 45 minutes wait for gate in PHL, 15 minutes at gate to get jet bridge to plane."
Pros: "Liked all the little amenities - actual meals, USB plugs for charging, free movies and games to entertain my kids, enough leg room that I can bend down and get stuff from my bag under the seat and that I could lean back a little without causing the person behind me to need knee surgery, tilt feature on screens to make video viewing easier when the person ahead of you tips their seat back. Seats were wide enough that I didn't fear jabbing my neighbor in the ribs every time I moved. Ice Cream!"
Pros: "I like it was fast and smooth"
Cons: "Not too much space in the plane"
Cons: "Unable to sleep on the redeye from Seattle to Philly owing to a loud, constant alarm for the entire flight."
Pros: "Awesome service"
Pros: "Other passengers were friendly?"
Cons: "I was traveling alone with my tired, cranky 13 month old. I get that it's no fun for anyone, including me, to have a tired toddler on the flight! But from the moment we boarded the flight attendant was unfriendly and unhelpful. I asked for help putting a heavy bag in the overhead compartment. She half-heartedly tried and then told me it "didn't fit". By simply turning it on its side, I was able to easily make it fit, but it was uncomfortable for me to have to do so while also holding my baby! The flight attendant then commented that I couldn't have the child in a carrier during the flight (something I am well aware of!). She also neglected to offer us a snack later on. Overall, she was rude and inconsiderate and made a difficult trip more unpleasant."
Pros: "Stsff was outstanding...love the compllimentary wine....like the old days.when service mattered most."
Cons: "Airline wait lines at terminals"
Cons: "Boarding-we boarded class 9 and had a carry on that was to big so all 3 personnel yelled at me and my husband with my daughter in my arms very loud and disrespectfully " YOU CAN NOT BRING THESE TYPE OF BAGS ON THE PLANE!" Mind you 3 people are saying this while other people were also waiting to board the plane! So I quickly say we do not need 3 people to tell us 1 thing and especially yelling at us like we were kids or criminals because it felt like we must have broke the law the way they treated us! That experience was horrible and ruined my liking for AA"
Cons: "Staff was rude and accoutable for delayed flight and lightning striking plane while we were in the air"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful. Upgrade from cloth seats was nice."
Cons: "The food wasn't terribly tasty or filling. Also, it was freezing - with a blanket, sweater and scarf on."
Pros: "Manchter to Philadelphia ok Philadelphia to sanfranscisco no good"
Cons: "I want to know we allready pay ticket why they charge eighty two doller more they no give us food nothing please give my money back next time I never bought ticket"
Pros: "Flight attendant"
Cons: "Delays Was told my ticket had been canceled"
Cons: "Aa blows"
Pros: "The meals were pretty decent and I loved that I was given chocolates during the flight."
Pros: "Everything was awful about the flight."
Cons: "The crew members were extremely rude, especially, Michelle and Micheal they should not be on long flights with such awful attitudes. None of the tv's, usb charging Ports worked. AA was the worst airline to fly overseas. Very disappointed."
Pros: "have been forced to check in my carry-on bag and waiting to pic it up at the baggage area, resulted that I missed my train"
Cons: "boarding, smooth flight, e-pass option"
Pros: "Good seats after being moved. Flight attendants were great."
Cons: "4.5 hours late leaving. Returning flight 1.5 late on return flight."
Pros: "I flew coach for the first time in a year, and I was shocked at how poor the service was. Additionally, the aircraft was not maintained: broken sinks in the bathroom / most of the video entertainment was broken in Premium Economy Class. I had to cross the Atlantic for 9 hours with no movies to distract me. I'm shocked that the business class crew still treat coach passengers with disrespect as if they are second class citizens."
Pros: "Flight crew was peofessional"
Cons: "First flight was delayed. Delay not related to weather. American refused to provide hotel. the provided hotel and meal voucher for a fellow traveler on same flight who missed his connection. I was told he was accommodated because he is priority. When asked how I become priority I was told "he spends more money and flies more often." To me that means as a customer I am not a priority to American Airlines."
Pros: "Food was fine."
Cons: "Plane was old and didn't include personal screens in the seats, for an 8+ hour flight it should be mandatory. Everything about the plane felt old and slightly dirty, and while flying across the Atlantic, it's slightly nerve wracking to still see cigarette disposals in the bathroom and on the seats (reminding you just how old the plane is)! The boarding process was a bit crazed, we were put on buses in no particular priority order and dropped off at the plane to all board at the same time!"
Pros: "inflight entertainment was good; food was so-so"
Cons: "Our flight was 'delayed' and as a result had to be put on another connecting flight. Many people on the same flight missed their connecting flights because of it. Because of all the re-booking they had to do, we nearly missed our flight as well. AA is also horrible at boarding."
Pros: "It was fine"
Cons: "It was a full flight, but I cannot complain"
Pros: "On time departure"
Cons: "Please use the A330 for the return trip..."
Pros: "My BA flight from Phoenix to Philidelphia to Dublin was cancelled.BA got me an alternate flight which was very satisfactory"
Pros: "Boarding process was quick and staff was decent."
Cons: "Tiny seats, everyone was uncomfortable because of this. No in flight entertainment."
Pros: "Everything was fine. Attendants very good."
Cons: "Everything fine."
Pros: "The crew was excellent, timing was superb,"
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."
Cons: "AVOID FLYING OUT OF PHILADELPHIA!!!"
Pros: "The crew was very informative. We had great exit row seats that we paid extra for."
Cons: "Customer service"
Cons: "No email sent when there was a delay in flight schedule"
Cons: "1] Two hours late 2] Other than the woman at the check in counter, your staff is unprofessional their attitude is more like hey Iam just doing my job Of course in retrospect since flying has become a commodity all airline service is like that"
Cons: "The flight was delayed due to weather, which is fine, the delay was 45 minutes, not a big deal....Here's the but...when it came to boarding time, they announced that it was not going to be boarding by zones and that everyone should just get on the plane. On top of what appeared to be a mass exodus, or perhaps something you'd see in a third world country, those people who paid more $$ to have carry on bags, in zone 1 and be able to board first were most certainly not feeling the value. The gate experience was not well organized or orchestrated. After getting off the plane, our daughter realized once in baggage claim that she left her backpack on the plane. Not being experienced in this area, we asked for help. A police officer told my wife to go to Frontier office, where there was no one in the office, someone else said have them paged. There was no white courtesy phone in the area that was operating, so she went to Southwest and asked if they could page someone to come to the Frontier office and they said no, walked to next terminal to find a working courtesy phone, paged someone to Frontier and within 5 minutes ,10 people showed up. Asked if someone could help. They radioed to the gate that a passenger left their bag. What the rep should have said was that they called the gate, hopefully someone locates and if they do, they will bring it here and we will check on it in a few minutes. The person didn't say a word, 5 minutes later my wife asked what happens now. After a nice sigh and eye roll, the Frontier rep says if they found, they bring it. My wife asked would it be possible to see if they found it instead of just waiting around here for bodies to appear. The bag was eventually found and returned but the experience was just now a good one to say the least."
Pros: "The crew at check in was very nice. Especially the lady who checked me in was very accommodating."
Pros: "The flight was pleasant and smooth. Pilot and crew were entertaining and friendly. The plane was clean when we boarded."
Cons: "Be prepared to pay extra for snacks and drinks on the plane. The seating was very close in every direction and In my row we found only 1 air-sickness bag, it was fortunate none of us needed one."
Cons: "Will not be using. Hidden charges doe luggage. No complimentary drinks. Filthy conditions. Will not be using frontier ever again."
Pros: "On time flight."
Cons: "Very clean."
Pros: "Fast and smooth"
Cons: "Stewardess are not attentive to passengers needs"
Cons: "Flight was delayed four hours."
Pros: "Seats have great leg space and are so comfortable !"
Cons: "I paid extra for a window seat, when boarding the seat looked as if someone had an accident. I had to fight to get to the back of the plane to seek with a crew member. When I told her she handed me a wet papertowel and a dry one. I didn't realize if you paid extra you had to clean as well."
Pros: "Great crew"
Pros: "Easy boarding and staff was polite"
Cons: "Charging for every little thing... Uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "Boarding started early, crew funny and personable, arrived on time, paid a little extra for roomy seat and worth it. Excellent flight!"
Cons: "We were charged additional money for our seats and carry on lugged. That cost us 194.00"
Pros: "One of the best flights taken."
Cons: "Take off"
Pros: "The pilot did a great job even though we had to go through some stormy weather"
Cons: "Charge for carry-on was never addressed before hand. I actually purchased a new carry-on so that I would not have to check my bag. Then, I had to check my bag in anyway because they charge more for carry-on then to check the bag. What a fraudulent mess! If that doesn't make things bad enough, you don't even get a bottle of water on your flight. Never again"
Pros: "Flight was on time, crew was friendly, plane was clean."
Cons: "Didn't find out about carry-on charges till flight was booked. Do your homework about luggage first! It just makes the flight seem cheaper than it really is. Not the most comfortable seats, but what do you expect for the price. 2 & 1/2 hours to Fla is about all you can deal with in those seats, for longer flights pick a more comfy plane."
Cons: "they cancelled my flight over little snow less then 5 in. i had to cancel my trip because of that"
Pros: "Love the airline staff. Always looking out for your comfort."
Cons: "Seats a bit cramped."
Pros: "Flight was relatively cheap."
Cons: "Flight was delayed from 11:40a to 12:38p. Flight didn't actually take off until about 1p"
Cons: "The flight was delayed several hours and set me back with my plans and interfered with other reservations that I had"
Cons: "The delay in departure"
Cons: "No notification about cancellation. No offer for another flight to destination. No reason provided for cancellation. Waited over an hour to speak to an agent who had nothing to offer. Bought a ticket from a more reliable airline, Southwest."
Cons: "I was given the wrong boarding pass and when I went back to the counter to correct that employee was extremely rude to me and on top of that I was charged carry on baggage fee."
Pros: "The original round trip fare"
Cons: "What I ended up paying- an additional $24 for seat selection and $75 for one carry on bag."
Cons: "They lost my seat reservation with no explanation. I was given a choice of exit row (have to get up to access my items in flight), or the very last row. No snacks were offered. Flight attendants were a little rude informing people "I said you can't form a line [for the bathroom], I didn't say you had to sit down!". The final boarding call was made TWENTY minutes before take off, forcing me to wait in a huge line to get to my seat (during which time I could have easily used the bathroom). The plane then still left 5 minutes late."
Cons: "The fact that booking through Kayak didn't let me know that Frontier was charging $40 per overhead bag, not even checked bags.Had I gone direct to the Frontier website, that would have definitely influenced my decision"
Pros: "flight was early going both ways"
Cons: "kiosks were not in working order. there were 4 and only 1 was working."
Pros: "Very professional"
Pros: "The plane was clean, the flight was 15 minutes early, the pilot was funny."
Cons: "The crew wasn't terribly friendly. They didn't clearly announce boarding for the flight so people were confused."
Pros: "great price; plane was clean and new; attendant at ticket counter at the airport was friendly and helpful, though I'm not certain she was a Frontier employee (may have been a shared discount airline counter)."
Cons: "trying to navigate the web page to check in on my phone was painful and ultimately fruitless. followed up by trying to call the reservations line, which was equally a waste of time. based on my experience, either find your way to a computer to check in (presumably that works, though can't say for sure), or save yourself the time and stress and just plan to head to the check in desk at the airport."
Pros: "Inside staff where very friendly"
Cons: "Ground staff horrible , terrible"
Pros: "I love that with the purchase of carry on I am zone 1 boarding."
Cons: "It was abnormally cold on the flight. The staff on both of my flights were not very friendly and not very present during the flight."
Cons: "No one explained to us why our 915 flight was delayed until 2 in the morning. And I'm sure the crew was just as exhausted as we were, which is completely understandable. However, aside from one stewardess, they showed how miserable they all were which in turn made the passengers more irritable. The flight home was much more tolerable."
Pros: "Seats don't recline Flight Attendants were nice Plane was clean Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "$2 for a coke - Really Ridiculous carry on bag fee Waited 45 min for my checked bag Can't check in and select a seat without forking over another $27 2.5 hour delay on departure Low cost airline wound up being more expensive than the big airlines - I won't fly them again Seat Trays too small to hold a laptop Why is "value" not rated above - that would most definitely be poor"
Pros: "It was on time."
Cons: "The seats are too small, and not padded much, so it is like sitting on a folding chair. THE SEATS DONT RECLINE. There was a 4" tray table because there isn't room for the normal 8"? (Guess) tray table to go. You can't put a laptop or anything on the tray table. I am a petite girl and i could not bend over in my seat to try snd get your personsl item... My head would hit the seat in front of me...very uncomfotable flight. Everything was an extra: we paid $35 to check each bag and $40 to carry one on. Pay for drinks on flight. No movie. I will never choose to fly Frontier ever again, unless it's my only option."
Pros: "Boarding was quick"
Cons: "Seat leg room is too small Don't like that you have to pay for snacks"
Pros: "It was affordable, quick and easy."
Cons: "They make you pay for any drink, even a cup of soda. So cheap airfare equals no free drinks. They don't even give a small bag of nuts anymore... All the airlines air cheap skates today. But what can ya do. That's what we get today."
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: "Loved that the pilot introduced himself and he was very upbeat and pleasant. Stewardesses were pleasant and self-assured. Overall, making me more comfortable with flying because we do not fly very often. We were seated in aisle 4 and it seemed a bit more noisy in front rather than in the rear of the plane. There was some turbulence, but not as much as when we flew to Florida two weeks ago."
Cons: "Our flight was scheduled for 7:55 pm. We arrived at the Frontier Counter about 5 pm and had to wait for approximately an hour before any Frontier representative arrived to begin the checking-in procedure. If this is the procedure at Tampa Airport, then more seating should be available in the check-in areas to accommodate those elderly persons who cannot stand for long periods of time."
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."
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."
Cons: "If you really want to know about our experience with Spirit, then call 580-678-4080 and talk with Patrick."
Pros: "The crew was amazing."
Cons: "Nothing. It’s what I expected from Spirit. Got me from A to B as simply as possible."
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: "No hassle travel"
Cons: "extra charges for everything"
Pros: "Good flight on time. I fly a lot - exceptional soft landing. Personable, helpful crew."
Cons: "Overpriced bag fees, rude flight attendants, shitty planes."
Cons: "My flight left early I was at the airport 1 hour before the time. When I got there my seat was taken. Also I had to pay 90 to get on the next flight which I belive is not fair. Worst travel agency!."
Pros: "one of the stewardess was helpful but the others were just rude w/nasty attitudes."
Cons: "boarding was late as usual crew was mostly rude seats are cramped with no leg room food?!? bahahahaha ~ yeah, if you want to pay yet another added cost to fly with Spirit Entertainment ~ there is none but luckily my view was nice & I had a ton of pictures that I needed to filter through on my phone"
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: "The crew was helpful and very nice at all times. The plane was clean and relatively new. Price was great, considering that I paid $96 for two passengers total, with taxes."
Cons: "Some of the passenger's attitude was not the right one. The prices for check bags, was a little inthehigh side."
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."
Pros: "Overall flying experience including 'On Time' performance. Reasonable service during flight."
Cons: "The uncomfortable seat which could not be reclined for a little comfort. The seat pitch (distance between 2 rows) was awful because the passenger in the seat right behind me was constantly kicking me in my back and that was very annoying."
Pros: "Nothing I will never fly with this airline again"
Cons: "$55.00 for a carry on. Flight delayed for 1.5 hours and still want to charge $3.00 for water. Seats very cramped. Staff not friendly. Check in, the computers were down for 1/2 hour. Should I continue ?"
Pros: "Very little save the fact that the plane was new."
Cons: "Pretty much everything. Low priced at the he outset but by the time they nickel and dime you to death and basically charge for a reasonable sized carry on bag the costs are the same, and at that point you're paying more for less!"
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."
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."
